That dedicated sophisticated little tiny touch thing

dedicated

Again, today and yesterday I realize something that I cannot describe by words. I tried to word it calling it a dedicated-sophisticated-little-tiny-touch thing.

Just sometimes you feel touch when you recognize something very hearty from the others. This time I’ve got this from my sister and my mom.

I love them.

P/s: And also, I’ve somehow come across the understanding that peace or no pain status is a status of no desire. And I’ve practiced no desire to soothe. 

Looking it as a positive way, pain/mind discomfortability is just to sharpen. 

P/s 2: And also, I’ve tried to be succinct. Succinct is better to feel every single thing in its deeper sense.

The alley [Fashion post]

Hi guys,

This post is much later than usual because I’ve been quite busy last 02 weeks :). I’m glad it’s finally here because it feels like forever for me to show my new hairstyle lol.

Well, I found this new alley which is quiet just nearby where I am staying. The yellow wall gives it a Hà Nội breath within Sài Gòn. And the yellow shade of the wall brings a good contrast for my sky blue long vest. Most of all, the alley is so quiet. So I just love it.

My long flowing vest tends to flatten on the body because of both its form and material thickness. Meanwhile, my A-line pleated skirt is a little bit puffy. But both of them work well together, just couldn’t see the weird swollen parts caused by that puffiness :).

My wardrobe list is below the Vietnamese paragraph. Hope you enjoy the photos. If you like my post please subscribe here at my homepage for email new post notification :).

Hi các bạn,

Bài post đợt này lên trễ hơn gần 1 tuần vì TV bận quá :).

TV tìm thấy 1 cái hẻm nhỏ gần nhà, có một bức tường màu vàng vàng. Có một số hình chụp lên trong con hẻm này cứ tưởng như là chụp ở Hà Nội :). Hẻm yên tĩnh lắm nên TV khá thích.

Trang phục lần này TV phối một chiếc áo ghi-lê form dài màu xanh da trời, áo hai dây trắng  và chân váy xếp ly chữ A màu xám. Chân váy xếp ly hơi phồng, nhưng áo ghi-lê này có chất liệu khá dày và hơi nặng, dáng dài chạy thẳng xuống và có thể “đè bẹp” váy phồng nằm gọn xuống, không làm cho phần hông bị phùng lên, nên nói chung là 2 món match well với nhau. Áo ghi-lê sát nách dáng dài thường tạo cảm giác trendy, TV lại mới cắt tóc ngắn nữa nên có lẽ cũng khá hợp với style này, xem như một style lạ lạ so với các style có phần nữ tính trước đây :).

List trang phục như bên dưới. Nếu các bạn thích bài viết của TV thì hãy subscribe để nhận email thông báo mỗi khi có post mới nhé :).

What I long for

My fave song – my fave singing guy.

P/s: Supposed to post the weekly fashion post last Sunday but I’ve been quite busy. Would be up soon before tomorrow (hopefully) 🙂

This is what I long for
More in life, that’s what you bring
Passion, full compassion
You’re the one who takes me in

I’m jumping round
Diving in, coming around

Closer, so much closer
To the place I’m longing for
Heated, no more coldness
Sun is shining, there is more

I’m jumping round
Diving in, coming around

I’m holding on, heart is heart together
Love within, brightening all the darkness
And I realize you’re the one
That fills my day with joy and relief

Makes me whole, you’re all I see
Yes, I believe

Closer, so much closer
To the place I’m longing for
Heated, no more coldness
Sun is shining, there is more

I’m jumping round
Diving in, coming around
Yeah, I’m jumping round
Diving in, coming around

I’m holding on, heart is heart together
Love within, brightening all the darkness
And I realize you’re the one
That fills my day with joy and relief

Makes me whole, you’re all I see
Yes, I believe

I’m holding on, heart is heart together
Love within, brightening all the darkness
And I realize you’re the one
That fills my day with joy and relief

I’m holding on, heart is heart together
Love within, brightening all the darkness
And I realize you’re the one
That fills my day with joy and relief

Makes me whole, you’re all I see
Yes, I believe

Diving in, coming around
Diving in, coming around
Diving in, coming around

Quiet Times – Dido

Ask me where I go tonight I go back to today last year.
Me and you had to make each other happier, now there’s hope with everything.

Its hard enough to feel the world as it is and hold on anything.
Without these quiet times coming round here.

I’m gonna have to run away, I’m sure that I belong some other place.
I’ve seen another side of all I’ve seen it keeps me wondering where my family is.

It’s hard enough to see the world as it is, and hold on anything.
Without these quiet times coming round here.

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Suppose I have to take you with me, broken mind I’d rather leave you here.
To forget everything you’ve seen and known erase every idea.

And you walk up in the street, and hold my hand and smile.
Well, I won’t be taken in, cus I know how it turns out.
And it takes me back to these quiet times coming round here.

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
You’re not coming back…
And I need you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
You’re not coming back…
And I need you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Xin chào các bạn

Đây là post về fashion thứ 3 trong năm 2017 của mình. Lần này TV lại tiếp tục cổ suý phong trào vintage với đầm sơ mi màu xanh navy, nón vành rộng và túi mây nhỏ nhỏ xinh xinh. Đầm này nguyên thuỷ không có dây nịt thắt ngang eo, có thể mặc kiểu dáng suôn rộng thẳng xuống, nhưng TV thấy là có chiếc dây nịt thắt ngang nhìn sẽ đẹp hơn, có điểm nhấn và nhất là nhìn eo được nhỏ hơn. Các bạn có trao đổi thêm gì thì comment bên dưới cho TV nhé.

How much is too much? [Fashion post]

fashion post

fashion post

[Tiếng Việt bên dưới]

Hello guys

It’s Sunday again. And as of my commitment, this is the second fashion post after the last one.

In this post, I am wearing a pink off-shoulder dress, a burgundy hat, flat sandal and a little rattan bag. I think it brings up some sort of both vintage and countryside flavor there. Probably I’ve always been loving vintage and anything countryside though, which kinda makes me left out of this too vibrant city. I’m just kidding. 🙂

I dressed up this one to see my ex-colleagues in a café, and it didn’t go out of any of my expectations; I’d got teased about how I looked. They said it was “too much”. I would expect that, so totally felt no offense. And also, we gangs actually never give kind comments on each other. You know what I mean, when it comes closer, insulting and sarcasm have become an important part of the friendship.

But then, how much is too much? (Question)

(And my answer is) As long as you like it. You’ll just not get enough from it.

I have passed the time when I easily get embarrassed because of some sort of undesirable comments, just because now I know where I am, who I am and what I am doing… As long as I am not disturbing or violating anyone’s privacy or even eyesight… (I hope not lol😅). I’m also aware of different opinions. One or two or three comments don’t represent everything, it’s just personal idea… Even it’s good comments, I don’t have much trust… As long as I know who I am, I won’t necessarily need being flattered or brought down… As long as I know I’m OK, it means I’m OK; if I feel it’s not OK, it’s not OK.

Cheers,

Truc Vien

Hello mọi người,

Hình fashion hôm nay TV đóng vai bánh bèo nữ tính nhé. Lâu lắm rồi mới mặc màu hường thuỳ mị thế này, lại còn off-shoulder nữa tạo vẻ hiền dịu nữ tính hết chỗ chê.

Lúc phối màu thì có sẵn cái nón vành màu đỏ burgundy, TV thấy khá hợp ý. Ngồi nghĩ thêm một hồi nữa thì quyết định nàng đầm trễ vai và nón rộng vành này sẽ đi với em túi mây be bé, tạo một vintage look luôn. Về giày thì TV phân vân giữ giày sandal bệt và một đôi high heel. Cuối cùng chọn đôi sandal thấp này vì thấy nó casual hơn, sẽ mang đến cho look này cảm giác bình dân nhẹ nhàng hợp với kiểu countryside hơn.

Các bạn có ý kiến gì thì comment bên dưới cho TV nhé.

The negative mind

fashion post

I wanted to share a whole world with you. Because you were just next to me and I though it would have been an entire waste if we weren’t sharing and enjoying the whole situation together. But, *alarming sound*, you didn’t have the same mindset with me. You buried youself with thoughts and insecurity… For me thoughts were nothing if you weren’t putting your mind into the joy with me, the joy of living. I know, everyone’s got their own hidden parts, worries and fears. Let me ease it, sympathize and get up and paint the world together. Just please don’t pull me down into your negative valleys. Don’t get angry, jealous and insecure that much. I’m kind and sensitive enough. As long as it’s me. (Lol)

Then I supposed I couldn’t share the world with you. I still attempted to share with you a forest, or maybe an ocean. You told me this country’s property is ugly and turned your back.

Coz we were still together, maybe until life tears us apart. I showed you the beauty of the flowers or a good books I read. You made a firewall and immediately doubted me.

So, OK. I kept sharing with you little beautiful things I saw daily, some really excited me. And you showed cold feelings and even more heart-breaking (nah im kidding) you made negative comments.

Until what I wanted to share with you was as small as an ant. And we knew we’d been the wrong gears ever since.

Well… Just be positive. Be a real human. Be lively. Because, there are times you’ll really need someone to share with you one day.

I go simple [Fashion post]

[Tiếng Việt bên dưới]

Hi guys,

Its been ages since my last fashion post I guess… I’ve recently committed to myself that I’ll make a weekly fashion post, every Sunday. I’m just gonna try to stick to this…

I think I’ve been trying to change my spontaneous personality into something more consistent. I’ve been experiencing that sort of spontaneity half of my life and deep inside I start feeling bored about it… I hope that this boredom can hike me up in a way.

Anyway, either it’s hiking me up or not, I’ll stick to a Sunday fashion post as my small step. I have experienced how well these small steps go and build up into something bigger. Well, even though sometimes it takes ages for me meanwhile it would take people only months lol. At least there is some movement ehem. *sweat*

Regarding the photos, I’ve gone simpler than any time in my blogging life. A loose white shirt + jeans + high heels and a neutral bag were already able to make me good to go. Ah, I wouldn’t forget a messy hairstyle which is my all-time fave which I believed can give me an effortless look *sweat*. Meanwhile I’m actually looking forward to managing my messy hair better than this lol.

Hope you guys enjoy the photos. Tell me what in your mind if any.

Best,

Truc Vien

Xin chào mọi người,

Dạo gần đây TV nghĩ là mình cần viết đều đặn hơn, làm gì thì đâu ra đó ra ngô ra khoai một chút. Cho nên sắp tới TV định hướng mỗi tuần sẽ có 1 bài blog về thời trang vào mỗi Chủ Nhật. Hi vọng sẽ được các bạn ủng hộ.

Bài viết lần này là sự trở lại của bài thời trang sau vài tháng vắng bóng và mải mê viết về chuyện yêu đương *cười nhăn răng*.

Về outfit kì này thì nói chung là tuổi tác càng “cao” mặc đồ càng giản dị đi. Ngoài ra TV còn thích mặc đồ rộng rộng thoải mái nữa, đặc biệt là trong thời tiết nắng nóng quá cỡ hiện nay tại SG 😅. Áo sơ mi trắng + quần jeans hình như ít khi nào bị lỗi mốt, TV thấy khá dễ kết hợp. Áo sơ mi rộng còn thường sẽ mang đến một cảm giác “effortless” cho người mặc nữa. TV đang dự tính sẽ tìm mua/tự may thêm vài áo sơ mi vải mềm hơn nữa để mặc cho mát trong mùa này. Các bạn nhớ theo dõi các bài thời trang tiếp theo của mình nhé.

Nếu có comment gì các bạn để lại cho TV bên dưới nhé.

Thân

I’m sorry for being rude

sorry for being rude

Hey dear,

I’m sorry for the time I was being rude. For the time I was totally insensitive to your sensitiveness.

I have become so sensitive to rudeness now, and certainly don’t feel comfortable at all being rude to. Then I’ve probably got how you felt…

I’m sorry that I didn’t touch your heart as much as I should have. I made you suffer in every bit every time we saw each other. Now I know every second we exist is precious and noone deserves tough time in this short and unpredictable lifetime. I’d better leave it if it’s a tough time for you or for me.

I also had failed in establishing a connection with your mind. And vice versa, you didn’t get into my mind properly either. We had stayed apart for so long ever since but we didn’t even know. Every weekend date didn’t make us closer any bit. We fell apart more and more, chasing our own minds, own paths without even glancing at each other’s, even when we were thinking we were close enough about the distance. We’d got high and low on our own, or we’d rather share it with people who knew about our things, either it was a friend or the siblings, sadly, not to each other.

We’d painfully learned a lot about that vast event. But I’ve never truly said sorry.

Forgive me, for a time being rude, silly and unconscious.

There he is (Ideal boyfriend)

ideal boyfriend

He texts me today. My eyes are running over the screen and catching some keyword from his text. There is some negative word in his message. But I don’t even have a wrinkle on my forehead.

Cause I know he is not bringing me any headache. It must be a joke he is delivering, or something like that. So I swipe unlocked and read it more carefully. I was right. It’s just another joke.  Always funny and makes me laugh a lot.

When things are getting tense, I know he’ll just try to ease it as best as he can before he reveals them to me. He’ll make fun of all the troubles we may be facing, since all he wishes is to relieve my mind, not tearing my nerve. He would act like my smile is his sunshine that he would never let anything dim it.

When he texts, he brings up light-hearted spontaneous stories. To make this world less painful and brighter, since he knows life is hard enough for me, for him, for everyone. But at the same time, he doesn’t forget to pay attention to my emotions. He notices the lightest attitude change on my face and asks about it immediately.

When I am upset, he’s there, holding my hand, speaking nothing but feeling me and my pain. It seems that just by holding my hand, my mind has been tranferred to him and thus, he’s able to feel the same thing.

Having a special spirit, he is smart, creative, light-hearted and logical. He loves himself and appreciates me. He loves nature and is kind to everyone he meets, or animal. He’d rather be cute and super honest in front of me. Bare and raw.

Boy, don’t think that I am demanding. Because this can be me as well. I’ll be demanding on myself to be with you. Coz I know by the time I’ve ever got a chance to know you, I’d been traveling a hundred lives before.
