Andy Warhol Exhibition Singapore

Last few weekends I went to Singapore. Hello Neighbour!

It was a last minute plan to escape. My cousin & I wanted to check out Andy Warhol Exhibition here at Art Science Museum Singapore. When I knew there is Warhol exhibition going on there, I was so excited. I always have been a fan of Andy Warhol & one of my dreams is to visit The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, USA. I always believe that art should be simple & accessible. So this explains why I’m drawn to Warhol’s work because he took everyday object & convert it into an art.

The museum is quite literally across Marina Bay & the architecture around Marina Bay is spectacular especially the Art Science Museum here itself, it’s breathtaking. We went to visit Andy Warhol 15 Minutes External Exhibition followed by a silkscreen painting. There is Harry Potter exhibition too going on if you are interested.

Pictures are strictly forbidden in the Andy Warhol exhibition, so most of the pictures were outside. So here are few pictures for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Style Me Pretty

I’m hit by Olivia Palermo’s fashion sense. I totally smitten for her well-tailored pieces, the amazing designer bags and her talent to combine pieces I would never think of putting it together to make a totally unique but wearable outfit. Olivia style proves two theories which are it’s all playing with details and you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like a million dollars. For the matter of fact, she’s dressing like someone on a budget, mixing designer with no-name labels and pickups from stores like Zara and Topshop. She creates her own style that takes only a  true fashionista to do that.  

To me I could say that my style evolved as I gotten older. I'm getting to understand myself little better, I know what works for me & my personal style. I really love clothes especially classic tailored dress.

Wrap Me Beautifully

#Delila Happiness Project 2012 (9)

I always get excited and happy when I open a beautifully wrapped gift. I can definitely guarantee there will be a big smile on my face and I might happily jump like a kid because of my excitement! :) I love when people show an effort to do something. For me a gift wrapped in beautiful way shows the effort done by the person. The time, the thought, the love, the honesty & the care to me is priceless.  Everyone can spend money on gifts for others. But not everyone can put an effort and thought for others unless if you are special. I feel special whenever I get a present that been wrap nicely. 
I have wrapped beautifully a gift for a friend. I have made a French beaded wire flowers to decorate the gift. It is my first trial and it takes a bit good amount of few hours to do these. But it is worth it. Show some love by shopping at Delila Designs Custom Gift Box

Cluttering Man Wardrobe.


Hello Gentleman out there!

You want to build up a wardrobe that won’t go out of style. First forget about all the clothes you have or the clothes you want, you need to understand the basic. These are the only essential items that every man must have to live a comfortable, well-dressed life, trust me it is a long term investment and stocking your closet with your essential pieces can save your time & energy. 
  1. White dress t shirt. It gives you instant dress up appearance & it matches well with anything.  Make sure you choose fabric such as 100% cotton & Linen.
  2. Navy blue coat/blazer. It can be worn in variety occasion from formal to just hanging out with friends at party. It also can work with jeans & a polo
  3. Black dress shoes. For any occasion that need some formality.
  4. Dark jeans. A staple for men. It can be worn at a nice restaurant & almost everywhere. I recommend you to avoid baggy or skinny jeans and please stay away from trends it might look cool now but it won’t be in few years
  5. Sneaker. For casual look.
  6. V neck sweater. Look great with polo/t-shirt.
  7. Watch. I realize that these days’ guys use their cell phone to tell time. To me when men have a classic timeless rock on their wrist, nothing better to reflect their charismatic personality look. So try to choose a quality, masculine & classic watch that you feel comfortable wearing.
  8. Polo Shirts-.Another items that look well in many situation. Are great when you stay in tropical country like Malaysia or during summer period.
  9. Pajamas & a swimsuit.
  10. Don't forget you need good quality undershirts & underwear.
To Gentleman, I hope there is something in here that helps you to start building up your wardrobe or simply just make you happy because there is a girl that wants to see your big smile when you getting ready! :-)

                Hope you have a happy weekend lovelies & that it is filled with people you love and sweet treats!

Time After Time

#Delila's Happiness Project 2012 (7)


some say love it is a river
that drowns the tender reed.
some say love it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed.

some say love it is a hunger
an endless, aching need
i say love it is a flower,
and you it’s only seed.

it’s the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
it’s the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance

it’s the one who won’t be taken,
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying
that never learns to live.

and the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long.
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong.

just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snow
lies the seed that with the sun’s love,
in the spring, becomes a rose.

the rose

20 Things I Learned in The Process of Growing Up.

#Delila's Happiness Project 2012 (6)
Spending time with the right people. I learnt that I need people that stand by my side when I am at my best & the ones who stand beside me when I’m at my worst.

Solve your problems. Try to face them. I learnt that it won’t be easy. I get upset, hurt and depressed to face problems. But I realised through the journey  it actually help me to become a better person.

Put on your own needs first.  Yes, help others, but help yourself too. I learnt that in life we need to be balance.

Be yourself. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  I learnt that don’t change just to make people like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

Move on. You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.

Just Do It. Doing something and getting it wrong is more productive than just sitting around, wondering & doing nothing.  I learnt that I will end up regretting the things I did not do far more than the things I did.

Never blame yourself.  We may love the wrong person and cry about the wrong things, but no matter how things go wrong, one thing is for sure, mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us. I learnt that every single thing that has ever happened in my life is actually preparing me for a moment to come.

Find happiness. The things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions.

Be happy being you.  You have to be comfortable in your own life first before you can share it with someone else.

Getting involved in relationships & taking time to enjoy it.  There’s no need to rush.  I learnt that if something is meant to be, it will happen. In the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason.

Stop trying to compete against everyone else. Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only. When others making success, take this as motivation for you.

Understand things .You may not see or understand everything the moment it happens, and it may be tough. I learnt that those negative things that thrown at you in the past eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation. 

 Enjoy the little things. One day you may look back and discover they were the big things.  I learnt that the best moment in my life will be the small & nameless moments. It’s true when they say “good things come in small packages”.

Stop trying to make things perfect. The real world doesn't do perfectionists. I learnt that i just have to do as best as I can in everything.

Follow your heart. Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  I learnt that don’t take the easy way out. Do something  that I love & want.
We are human. It’s okay to fall apart for a little while.  You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well.  I learnt that cry if I need to, it’s good for my soul and the sooner I do, the sooner I will be able to breathe, think straight & smile again.

Stop blaming others for your troubles.  When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility.

Be positive. I learnt that wake up every morning with a thought that something wonderful will happen in my life today, pay close attention to the thought and at the end of the day I’ll often find that I am right.

Be grateful.  Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing. So wakes up each day thankful for your life.

Smile!  Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday, and you will be.

So how about you lovelies, what did u learn in the process of growing up? I would love to know.

Arabian Land

#Delila Happiness Project 2012 (5)

There’s nothing I love more than exploring new countries, meeting new people & learning new culture.

When I was  in Arab Saudi, women have, needed or must wear hijab (especially in Jeddah, Makah & Medina).  So few pictures below you could see the style of me wearing hijab .

I got to say it was a nice experience wearing them. There was a time when i was there I forgot to wear, just because i'm not used to it. The best thing when I wore the hijab, it was like a care free day where I don't have to think about my hair look when the wind blow or the hustle to comb my hair, washing it every day & blow dry it. But being me, I also enjoy not wearing them. 



I wore JapangKimono Baju Kurung, Delila Petite Collection. 
All the scarf that I wore belong to my mum's wardrobe.

  2. A good quality times with family;  “The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life”

Thank you Hadifah for sharing!

Quote Of The day!

#Delila Happiness Project 2012 (3)

The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good company, good conversation, are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves, they are the cause of happiness in others. 
 William Lyon Phelps

It's a Pet's World

#Delila's Happiness Project 2012 (1)

Should I start making a campaign to everyone how nice to have a cat.
‘Cats are the best, they never cry.
 'Here hold My cat's Coco! Here play with her.'
'Oh my god, you look so happy with a cat.'
'Oh my! I can see coco like you!'

Oh dear someone please save me! I guess i'm crazy obsess with a cat name Coco.
