Too downright sexy for words. All I know is that I want to start choreographing with the beau again.
What are you doing this Saturday?
Come and join us, and let us bring you into a world of deep living, where we cultivate a lifestyle of living to the absolute fullest. Boutique pools, beautiful sunsets, a sexy selection of house music to tingle your tastebuds right in the heart of our capital.
We KLites are forces to be reckoned with. We are movers and shakers, and spend our weeks hustling and bustling around the city – chasing deadlines, ambitions and rush hours – but at the same time, given the opportunity, we know how to have a good time. We do love what we do, of course, so let’s enjoy the best of both worlds – simply because we can.
Stereo Therapy brings the good life to you. We take the happenings of KL, and give them our very own special twist – fusing Malaysia’s perpetual summers with the much-envied lifestyles of Barcelona, Miami and Ibiza this Saturday, courtesy of The Pool with a line up of the finest KL has to offer: Victor G, LFL, Alam, B.A.T.E., Gaijin, and Nanameh.

So we’ve got the pool, and we’ve got the party – with no cover charge. All you need to do is to bring yourself and your swimwear along, as people found in the pool will be rewarded with free tequila shots! Not much of a drinker? Allow us to tempt you with free food then – we’ll be setting up a mouth-watering barbecue for all you hungry party animals. Still finding it a little too chilled for your taste? Well, we’ve got fire-eaters towards the evening to heat things up for you pyromaniacs out there!
On a more business-oriented note, buying a bottle for five people will get you a normal table, while two bottles will get you a cosy booth. We’ve got Black Label, Belvedere and Glenmorangie for you hard-hitters, and Veuve Clicquot for those who prefer some bubbly – and that’s just to name a few!
So come along and unwind with us this Saturday evening while we bliss you out with a delicious blend of deep house, tech house, house, disco and big room. Call +6017-315 6750 for more information, or join our event on Facebook here.
PS. Don’t fret if you can’t make it this time around – word is going around that Stereo Therapy will be hitting KL with a line up of six DJs each and every month. So keep your eyes and ears peeled for the next one!
I stumbled upon this little treasure chest of inspiration, LOMW (short for Laws of (the) Modern Woman) a while back, and I just had to share some of its many gems. It was initially a little like opening Pandora’s box – in a good way – as I found myself being pulled deeper and deeper into its depths, searching for a particular bit to share first, but I think this resonated with me the most,
I’ve gone through quite a bit of emotional turmoil since I arrived back home on Southeast Asian ground, mainly because I was used to (and still favour) the absolute freedom bestowed upon me whilst I was living in the UK, and in more ways than one at that. Coming back and being home for an indefinite period of time – not counting my trip back for my graduation at the end of the year, of course – do get a little overwhelming at times, what with my being exposed to the constraints and the (seemingly natural) lack of freedom once again, both of which were distinctly absent while I was overseas.
But that being said, I don’t want to limit myself anymore. It took me three whole years of being overseas to realise this, with much emphasis on my third and final year, given the circumstances I was put into. I’ve been more or less subject to constraint my entire life, to differing extents – both by myself and by external forces, and I no longer want to hold myself back, especially after coming to this realisation. I want to live in a world where I can just be, completely and authentically myself without being constantly pulled down by concerns about what others thought and the expectations they had of me. I no longer want to compare myself to others, but rather compete with no one but myself, and what I’m capable of achieving in this lifetime, pushing myself to my fullest potential time and time again, cultivating a lifelong learning process.
I’ve made my fair share of mistakes, but most importantly, I’ve learnt from all of them, every single one uncompromised, and I’ve moved on. I’ve gone through countless ups and downs, and I’ve faced adversity – right in the face at times, but I’m a much stronger person because of that, because of it all. And I’m proud to have come this far, immensely so. But I know I can go so much further, simply because I can feel it – the burning desire, the inextinguishable passion, the persistent drive – in myself.
I’ve learnt a whole lot from being overseas these past three years, more about myself than anything else in fact. I now know what I want in life, and what I want to attract into my life. I’ve found clarity, as well as being exposed to the sweet taste of constant discovery and growth. This fusion of sorts – the experience of possessing influence from both the East and West, rewarded me with substantial insight into myself and the things around me. I’m now used to being thrown out of my comfort zone, into the unknown – someplace new, uncharted territory. And with this comes a brand new sense of adventure, a rush of adrenaline I wasn’t accustomed to at first, but it’s incredibly addictive to say the least. The excitement, of wondering what’s going to happen.
Life is amazing – I love it. I love where I am, what I do, and who I’m with. I love more, I live more, and I don’t just simply exist. So yes, no more limits. To burning passions and being phoenixes. Have a brilliant weekend, all!
What people lack in life is not more reality but illusion, fantasy, play.. Seduction is a kind of theatre in real life, the meeting of illusion and reality.

Cooling down in Starbucks with their iced shaken lemon Tazo Zen tea (a new favourite!), amidst crystal trees which glinted beautifully in the sunlight, mm. I spent the weekend looking for inspiration in IKEA, browsing its maze-like halls and marketplace for quite some time before walking out with a number of SKUBB organisers and a vanilla-scented candle which smells good enough to eat – tucked nicely into a glass cup – for my little private sanctuary of a room. It even goes brilliantly with the colour scheme I’ve planned out for it: muted tones of nude, white and cream with lashings of gold – pale and striking alike, although I do still hold a strong affinity towards the black and gold combination for other aspects. Next on the list: a small but tall, minimalist glass vase, gorgeous faux orchids to put in it (because I wouldn’t want to maintain live ones for now), and a luxurious faux fur rug (I’m pro-animals). Oh, and IKEA’s apparently to-die-for Swedish meatballs – which I have never, ever tried. It’s practically blasphemous, I know.
Fashion fix: Gilded candy and a late-night read. Power, danger, brains – what really turns you on?
I was initially scheduled to do a shoot with the talented Brendan Lee earlier this morning, but as the make-up artist couldn’t make it for the day, we decided to postpone it to another more convenient date. I was still up for a little photography though, and since I had an extra hour or two to kill, I impulsively decided to make myself my own subject!
Armed with my trusty camera’s self timer and inspiration from Terry Richardson and Camilla Akrans – just two of the many fashion photographers I look up to – I wandered around the entire house in search of a plain white wall to use as a background, for Terry Richardson’s distinguished and extremely influential artistry revolved around blank white backgrounds and high flashes, and I found myself ending up in front of the closet doors in my room, which happened to be the closest thing resembling a white wall. Make do with what you’ve got (at times), eh?
I didn’t have the whole day (or even half of it) at my disposal, so I kept things simple all around: I threw on one of my favourite LBDs – black mesh and bodycon, courtesy of Miss Selfridge, put on a bit of make up and my signature silver hoops (I’m rarely seen without them, apparently), turned DEV on, and started snapping. It was pretty much a one-woman show, all the way from the pre-production to the post-production of the pictures, but it’s such a satisfaction to know you were behind every single bit of the process.
I was actually contemplating whether to apply more of a pinhole effect to the pictures but I decided against it in the end, thinking it’d go better with the blank background instead. Final takes!
Enjoy your morning, all!
It’s you and me, moving at the speed of light into eternity. Tonight is the night, to join me in the middle of ecstasy. Feel the melody and the rhythm of the music around you, around you. I will take you there, I will take you there. So don’t be scared, I’m right here. Ready? We can go anywhere, go anywhere. But first, it’s your chance – take my hand, come with me. Feels like we’re on another level, feels like our love’s intertwined. We can be two rebels, breaking the rules. Me and you, you and I. All you’ve got to do is watch me, look what I can do with my feet – baby, feel the beat inside. I’m driving, you could take the front seat, just need you to trust me. It’s like now. It’s a long way down, we’re so high off the ground – sending for an angel to bring me your heart. (Boy) where did you come from? Got me so undone. Gaze in your eyes got me saying, what a beautiful (being). No ifs, ands, or maybes. I’m releasing my heart and it’s feeling amazing. There’s no one else that matters, you love me. And I won’t let you fall (boy), let you fall (boy). I won’t let you fall, let you fall, let you fall.
It’s like I’ve waited my whole life for this one night – it’s going to be me, you, and the dance floor. Because we’ve only got one night. Double your pleasure, double your fun. And dance forever-ever-ever, forever-ever-ever, forever-ever-ever, forever (forever). Ever-ever-ever, forever-ever-ever, forever-ever-ever, forever on the dance floor.
Taylor’s Dance Arena, August 2008
Because this song holds more meaning than most are even aware of. Half a year, and counting. The Yang to my Yin, I love you.
