The fashion faux pas you can tolerate most –Logo mania (especially with mainlanders – forgive them since they still have a lot of catching up to do)

The fashion faux pas you can tolerate least – Designer brand from head to toe where it looks BAD and tasteless – for those who aren’t from the mainland and should know better and can afford to be stylish, but are just unaware – shame on you!

What is your present state of mind? Uber chill – on a beach in Malaysia – about to eat lunch!

Your fashion motto – Don’t ever be close-minded about fashion. If you’re not having fun, then what’s the point??
