Late night Times Square getaway in @Mango striped suit set - the tapered trousers are perfection! #MangoGirls

A little peek into what went down @marcjacobs at NYFW!

Always my favourite rooftop spot. In this fiery red ensemble from @Mango! #MangoGirls

The actions of a 12-year-old should not determine the rest of his or her life. And they do not.
The PSLE is undoubtedly important and the efforts of those who do well for it should not be downplayed. It provides a massive boost to students who do well and such a boost cannot be underestimated, particularly for students who come from families that are not well off.
But getting a score lower than what one expected does not mean that one is incapable of learning, or that one will not be successful in life, or that one is inferior to those who scored higher. It just means that you obtained a lower score than some people because you did not get as many questions correct as they did for a set of examination papers. That is all. A means by which students are streamed to optimise their learning for a number of subsequent years.
Success ultimately depends on character, tenacity of spirit, and getting the right breaks in life. Those play out throughout oneโ€™s life and certainly do not depend on the examination scores obtained by a 12-year-old. Yes, the experience in obtaining that score may shape oneโ€™s character and tenacity, but I think the score itself is more a break in life.
I think I did decently for the PSLE. It seemed monumental and massive when I was 12 years old, but there was much more that life had to unravel. I think the PSLE only had a small bearing on where I am in life right now in that it paved the way for me to know some of the people that I have in my life and the experiences we shared and continue to share.
Quite apart from that, examination scores and certificates do not own you. In fact, years later when I had to choose between completing my university degree and my career, that belief guided my choice and Iโ€™ve not looked back since.
I think Iโ€™m doing quite ok for a 238!

Having fun with @BobbiBrown trying out different styles for Fashion Week! Transforming from Day-time to Night-time looks with the help of the New Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip collection (3 new formulas just dropped!).

This is my kind of Luxe. What's your pick? #LuxeLip #BobbiBrownSG

What a dream to come back home to this view everyday this #NYFW. I booked us a beautiful apartment in a townhouse located on the Upper East Side via @homeawayasia - the apartment comes with a kitchen, housekeeper, laundry service... you name it! We are already feeling bummed about leaving this home in a few days. ๐Ÿ˜” #HomeAway #GetAwaywithHomeAway
