Yesterday I heard a baby cry. Not my baby, someone else’s. In the past, the high pitched sobs would have been audible garbage to me. I’d wish I had selective hearing to filter out the annoying wails, and I’d think to myself “Just make it stop!”. But lately, God has been softening my heart. Babies’ cries no longer fall on deaf ears. Since having had Winston, I now empathise with mothers with crying children, and even want to go and comfort them (both moms and their bubs)! Not only have I grown to accommodate baby howls, I’ve also started to ‘hear’ people’s needs better in our conversations. It’s as if I’ve developed a new set of ears.
Surely you’re not confusing my ‘new ears’ with these new ears :) These adorable silk floral ones are handcrafted by Melbourne designer Eva Q. She is known for her delicate gowns made with haute-couture qualities. And being the eco-friendly champion she is, Eva refused to let intricate fabric cut-offs go to waste, instead, she created these adorable embellished headpieces. They may not guarantee you develop ears of sensitivity, but they sure are cute!
You may recognise these Lucy Choi Slippers from this Instagram photo. I’ve been searching high and low for a velvet pair, so when I saw this gunmetal pair with toe-caps, I couldn’t resist! Since hubby bought us a new
cat car for Valentine’s Day, these have become the perfect driving shoes.
Now that VAMFF is well and truly over, we can all take a breather. Inhale. Exhale… until MBAFW!
I used to vow that I would never fly with a baby because all they do is cry. But guess what? I just booked flights for Sydney fashion week! It will be our first trip with Winston. I sure hope that he will continue to be a good baby or perhaps that the passengers may also develop empathetic hearing? If you’ve had experience flying with a newborn or a pram, please share!

昨天我听到一个婴儿的哭声。不是我的宝贝，别人的。过去，一听到婴孩的哭声就会让我很反感,我巴不得那孩子的家长能快点让孩子停止哭泣 。但最近，神软化了我的心。我不光能忍受婴儿的啼哭声,我还心里为他们担心。自从我有了宝宝后，我会同情那些哭闹孩子们的母亲，甚至想去安慰他们 ！最近我也发现，我开始能更清晰地“听到”别人的需要.好像我长了一幅新的耳朵。
你可以从这张Instagram照片上认出这双Lucy Choi 拖鞋。我一直在寻找一双绒的鞋，当我看到这双带有银色鞋头的时候，我无法抗拒！最近这双鞋成为了我最爱的驾驶鞋。
