LOOKBOOK | Wearing my house's colors

halfwhiteboy - slytherin green, white, silver 01

While every Potterhead would probably love to be in Gryffindor, I'm more than happy to be in Slytherin. That's where the Sorting Hat put me. He knows. I was born in the Year of the Snake after all.

And here I am proudly wearing my house's colors of green and silver. When they said we had to wear either white or green for a group photo, I was of course very much willing to oblige. So here goes a white shirt, green pants, silver shoes, and a Slytherin tie.

LOOKBOOK | Just another plaid shirt

halfwhiteboy - plaid shirt and colored pants 01

Yes, it's another plaid shirt, something I'm easily drawn to. This one comes in a woven fabric, however. I like that it's a tad thick and for some reason it gives me the cowboy feels. Quite surprisingly, too, this one's a small (I'm usually a medium). I think it's the American sizing.

FRAGRANCE | The Tragedy of Lord George (from the Penhaligon's Portraits Collection)

halfwhiteboy - penhaligon's portraits - the tragedy of lord george 01

What a gorgeous-looking bottle, don't you agree? Admittedly it's part of the reason why I bought The Tragedy of Lord George, a 2016 release from Penhaligon's for its Portraits Collection. Yes, it is such a lengthy name for a fragrance but then again this collection has entries like The Revenge of Lady Blanche, Much Ado about the Duke, and The Coveted Duchess Rose, to name a few. They all come in identical bottles but are differentiated by their dedicated animal head cap.

LOOKBOOK | Creamy camo

halfwhiteboy - camo sweatshirt and joggers 01

Hello, weekend! How about letting loose in joggers, a creamy brown camo top, and matching shoes? I could imagine this in green camo, too. Or gray.

LOOKBOOK | 'Tis the season for flannel

halfwhiteboy - flannel shirt and rust colored pants 01

Flannel shirts have a special place during the colder months. They're warm and comfy, and their usually plaid patterns allow for versatility in terms of putting together an outfit.

TRAVEL | La Beaute de Hanoi Hotel: Great value for money

So we're already halfway through the first month of the new year. Got any travel plans yet? While I'm already looking forward to summer, wouldn't it be nice to go someplace while the weather's cold?

In that regard, Hanoi in Vietnam would be great since they have winter there--sans all the discomfort that snow brings. Despite all the perceived chaos brought by swarms of motorbikes, Hanoi is a nice city, especially its Old Quarter area.

When we were there last year we stayed at this lovely and inexpensive little hotel called La Beaute de Hanoi. Here's a rundown of our experience.

LOOKBOOK | Pink stripes in candy land

halfwhiteboy - pink stripes 01
Can I eat it?

Speaking of holding on to the holidays, here's another one. In another mall the decor was candy-themed, so there were lots of pink and blue. I just thought the polo with pink stripes I was wearing fit right into the background.

LOOKBOOK | Black and khaki

halfwhiteboy - black and khaki 01

Nothing much really, just khaki pants, a plain black V-neck tee, and a pair of black sneakers for a rather plain and easygoing look. And yeah, holding on to the holidays perhaps.

LOOKBOOK | A touch of holiday color and a lot of reindeer

halfwhiteboy - holiday reindeer fun in maroon shorts 01
Christmas caroling with some reindeer in scarves.

Nothing much going on with my outfit really; just maroon shorts (which, being close to red, evokes some connection to the holidays--or at least I think it does), an old white tee with a graphic pixelated print, and some gray sneakers. It's a getup that's very relaxed and fit for some malling.

And oh, what fun did I have at the mall! The kid in me was unleashed yet again, thanks to Shangri-la Plaza's reindeer-themed Christmas decor. I went a little crazy as it was reindeer everywhere.
