A few rare pictures of myself, taken by best friend Rio Lam.
"Alone is walking along a street, just you and your city, taking things in that you often don’t take the time to appreciate when you’re busy with other people. It is allowing your senses to be your company, talking to you with a million different voices of how good this smells or how wonderful that feels. It is taking the time to soak in your surroundings, instead of just existing blindly within them.
Lonely is seeing something so beautiful that you feel your heart cannot contain it all by itself, that it is going to burst from the radiance that it is longing to express. It is wanting to turn to someone, anyone, and say “Look at that. Isn’t that wonderful?” and realizing that, as with so many other memories of late, there is just no one there to share it with.” - Chelsea Fargan
"Midsummer Sighs" with Anna.
I have grown to fall deeply in love with watches. It wouldn’t be much of a surprise if one day, these pretty things take a significant space in my future closet. But here is the process of unpacking my newest love from Karma Loop- boyfriend watch. It is flawless and I still can’t get enough of it. Quite heavy on the wrist but definitely a great addition to my daily looks.
Everything is wonderful except I had to spend an hour trying to remove some parts to make it fit perfectly. Phew!
Got a surprise from my dear talented friend, Brian Vu, from Brooklyn- prints of his "No Bad Days" collage. I’ve always wanted to hold these amazing art work on hands. They are incredible as many other works by Brian.
Thanks for being such an inspiration, friend!

I have huge admiration and respect for this guy.
Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful; yourself.

Stumbled upon this awesome series made by Dior Homme x Fantastic Man.
There are several videos within this concept, you should check them all out. Models are more than just an objects to look at! Pretty brilliant collaboration indeed!
To be completely honest, I’ve always been a big fan and I’ve always had great admiration for Olivia Bee and what she does. Not going to mention so much about her age but it is something to be jealous with! This campaign she did for Roger Vivier looks so much fun!
You should also check out their campaign photos taken by Olivia. Absolutely creative and unique!
Official promo video for my “Get Lost. Be Found” project is now up on youtube! Please kindly check it out and share it if possible.
I can’t wait to capture the beauty of America, of life on the roads, and of beautiful people I’ll have the pleasure to meet once this project happens.
