beckoning treasurer


They say the secret of being successful is to get up everytime we fall. I cannot disagree in a way or two.

In fact, that cycle of falling-getting up happens in a whole life. Where is thus the finish line for it to be called a "success"? The term of 'happy ever after' should really be revised. I once noticed someone quoting, "Happy ending only happens when you decide the story to end."

Previously, I wrote a post here about the subjective perspective in how one defines success or a happy ending of their life. Well for now, I've learnt that the secret of feeling successful is to take control of your greed and make friends with what you currently are.


I simply love brown and I personally think that leather is the king in fashion. Well, at the very least fact, leather was there in the early days of men. Fall is thus a heavenly season for me as it will be replenished with folks wearing brown and leathers. How do you rate leather in fashion, anyway?


A couple of weeks ago my artistic friend, Ken, spoke to me about his intention of having another photo portfolio. There had been a few concepts before finally he decided to have 9 scenes with a theme of a man indulging himself in his dreamy state of mind. There's a possibility that I will upload his amazing takes in the latter post. For now, you might like to enjoy these outfit photos which outfit is intended to welcoming Autumn.



These outfit photos were completely taken by the Photographic State's sole photographer in the middle of the session with a little humble credit to myself on the editing HAHA

Anyhow, I have this Zara brown patched blazer which has been my wardrobe's prince, yet I almost never wear it. There are some people (Asians or Chinese particularly) who often do that to their favourite things, so they will probably last longer haha But don't worry, I will be likely to post a lot of outfits wearing it this Fall, don't get bored with it yet (;

Additionally, white shirt, leather boots, relaxed khaki pants, a retro leather Fossil bag, and a couple of bow tie plus pocket watch necklace did their job well.




I hope you have treasured your summer holiday well and that you will have a new blast of a month!

  4. If you can make friends with who you are, then you will be happy at least. If you can pick yourself up when you fail, you will soon succeed. If you're failing at everything, it can't really be called a success.

  5. So true, just be grateful for what you have cause everybody has their own part of blessing that God has provided for them even before they were born :)

  50. Cool themed photo shoot :) Success and failure is just a circle of life. One not simply always stay on the top, sometimes we might fell. Just get the urge to stand back up in order to reach the top.

  55. Thanks for the comment.I like the shoes too and I guess they are from Rick Owens but I dont know for sure. If you're in amsterdam one day you definitely have to visit that store. the pictures your friend made is really cool, the location and your clothes fits perfectly together.

  56. success is one of the most impossible to define because it's subjective and goes back to every individual. happy endings, although less controversial, are still subject to each of our own standards. i guess one can never provide the perfect definition of those for the whole world.
    i'm just curious, who takes your pictures? these pics are cool!
