Chinese New Year is coming up! I’ve been running in advance (to gain ‘credits‘) and in anticipation that I’ll be eating a lot of yummy goodies *slurps* pineapple tarts!!! ❤

If, like me, you have yet to purchase new clothes and want to pay homage to the Chinese heritage… You could consider My Mandarin Collar.



Located in the Holland Village area, they carry traditional Qi Paos and Cheongsams.




As well as a wide variety of non-traditional interpretations.



Over the past weekend, I helped out with a small charity fund-raising event: A silent auction accompanied by an informal fashion show, sponsored by My Mandarin Collar.


I wore a wonderful Qi Pao jumpsuit [that I am quite tempted to buy, although I was somewhat afraid of finding out its price.. :/ feeling very poor right now] (Jumpsuit not on My Mandarin Collar site yet)

Perhaps, I could buy it then hope that my ang pao money covers it’s cost (although I can’t believe I’m even contemplating this!! hahas)

Ah yes, Chinese New Year! I’m always loving the pineapple cakes (though I pretty much stuff my face with them periodically all year round). I’m thinking about good ways to wear qi pao this time around – this entry provides some good inspiration. 🙂 Love the jumpsuit!
