7-Day Break from Social Media

I've been meaning to do this for quite sometimes and after almost a week away from the city for Chinese New Year break, I'm feeling more inspired than eve to give this a go. I'm taking time off from social media bitches!

I'm just sick of all my superficial fashion industry friends and their shitty attitude. Don't even get me started on my former college friends who are now all of a sudden the great servants of god and parenting experts. I don't want to see any more Instagram updates on my social media friends' extravagant shopping sprees or vacations that most of the time paid buy some 'white friends' they just met. I also don't want to see links to articles about the current political situation of this country and how they think the country is ruled by idiots. And I mostly don't want to read any more quotes on thanking god and feeling blessed.

I wish I could stay off social media for good, especially Facebook where the mothers of all fake idiots live. But I'm a lifestyle writer/ blogger. Social media is a part of lifestyle and who's going to read my articles if I don't share them with my followers? Or should I delete Facebook and stick to Twitter where I can read witty yet clever blabbering of intelligent people like Lena Dunham and read intelligent articles from magazines like NME and the New Yorker?

Let's just see how this turns out. I think I can do this. I've already put an end to a bad habit that I started back in 2001. It's been only three weeks. I feel like I should stay on the safe side and only write an entry for that once I hit the one month mark.

B4N suckers!

Feiyue I Will

Feiyue is shoe brand originated from China but has since been adopted by the French. I have been searching high and low for an original pair. I finally managed to find them online for a very low price and they are an authentic pair from Taiwan. Definitely not one of those French manufactured bullshit.

As soon as the shoes arrive, I started Googling to check the authenticity of the shoes. Just in case. I discovered this website showing how China and French Feiyue are different.

Well yes the French version comes in many different designs and colors but honestly, if I wanted to buy hi-tops or fancy color-blocked sneakers, I might as well just buy them from Nike or Converse. 

Feiyue is interesting for the history behind it (worn by the warrior and martial art experts). And god knows how comfortable they are on your feet.
