Brunch with Lang Leav

29th November 2014

It all started when I stumbled upon a piece of writing in Tumblr. 
So many pieces of her writings spoke to me beyond the surface of words and dug out all the emotions I felt within. I'd never imagined I would have a chance to meet her face-to-face!

A few weeks ago, Megan joined a contest organised by Cleo for a chance to have brunch w Lang, and winners get to bring a friend along. Could you picture how ecstatic I was when she told me we won! My goodness I felt so faint!

THANK YOU Megs, for choosing to bring me! This means the world to me.

Penguin Books Singapore (PBS) and Cleo decided to have the brunch at Antoinette @ Penhas, a classy yet cosy setting. Perfect!

These beautiful menu were designed by PBS! The dishes were handpicked as well! Felt really special. Yes, we get to keep them (:

The ladies and our food. Turned out to be quite a girly affair, talking about love, life and what-not. Definitely a great sharing session!

Check out our fabulous looking cakes! Don't they look royal??
Unfortunately we were too full to finish them but they were amazing!

Then I popped the question:

"Can we take a selfie?"

Hahahaha Lang looks so pretty here! She really should smile more, don't you agree!

So that kind of started the Photography Session.

My favourite picture of the day, holding on to my signed copies of her book, heart thumping like crazy. Trying my best to hide the exhilaration from bursting out of my face. 

A big big thank you to Penguin Books Singapore, Cleo, Antoinette @ Penhas, Megan as well as Lang for this lovely brunch. It was nothing short of magical.
Lang talked about how it all started, some of her other interests, a tiny bit about her upcoming plans, shared some precious photos of her loved ones, and even read her favourite piece to us.

A Good Book

A good book never lets you put it down;
it demands attention like a new born child.
Slowly but surely, hours pass.

It takes you on journeys,
through different identities
doing things you never thought you would.

Between the letters and spaces
you begin to fall
in love with the characters.

As you flip to the last page
you feel torn;
a part of you is gone.

A really good book -
it lingers;
it keeps you wondering..

Gray Area

There's a part of life that, no matter how I chase, will never truly understand.
Is that supposed to be sad?
Looking at how almost everyone is able to have it, even taking it for granted, but I will never obtain it.

I used to have it. Used to. I guess I took it for granted as well.
In a split second I lost it. It slipped right out of my fingers.

I didn't understand what it meant though, the moment that I lost it.
Then all at once, everything hit me.
It's never coming back, never again shall I experience it.

Do I envy others?
As much as I deny, there's no way to hide.
But one must face reality.
The saddest part is that, only a rare few will understand;
& I can only feel this sadness alone.

Rogue Planets

I think of you at ten; the first time I saw you. Your smile at nine and how it lit up something inside me I had thought long dead. Your lips at eight pressed against mine and at seven, your warm breath in my ear and your hands everywhere. You tell me you love me at six and at five we have our first real fight. At four we have our second and at three, our third. At two you tell me you can't go on any longer and then at one, you ask me to stay.

A Toast!

"To new beginnings,
     in fear and faith
      and all it tinges."

Well, I'm going to take a huge step out of my comfort zone and it sure is frightening.
Something I was never good at, have no experience in and always resisted.

Having said that, I'm looking forward to it.
So here's a toast, to new beginnings.
