Fashion and Street Style

Thanks to Lookbook online fashion blog for the updates. I am always been a reader of this top online fashion blog-style since 2011. As a clothes lover, I always need to be on the bring up-to-date since I love clothes. Hand me down clothing is always on my top as it is cheaper and no one wears similar to mine. I might be a selfish on this part but, practically speaking, I am gaga over hand-me-down clothes.
Anyway, these are the latest fashion and fine street style for me, that I love to have for this year.
Love the combination, but the long sleeve really makes me to fall in love.

This checkered sleeve reminds me of my Sprit shirt...I'd definitely buy a new one similar to this. 

Again, the floral sleeve makes me fall in love....

I am having a hard time of looking a yellow belt here in Thailand closely alike to this...

Wish I could own a vintage cam so like that...after all, love the accessories. 

Love everything he wore, would definitely get one for this year...the corduroy pants is fantastic. 

I love the mint green pants.....so cool, not so overly-colored.

Hmmm..the green shoes...it attracts me.

Wish I could find a sleeve just like this in Bangkok.

I have a long sleeve which is pretty similar to this, but mine was a plain blue and the pocket was striped.

Wow.....pink shoes....I guess, I'll try one-if I could carry it well.

So classy and elegant.....love the sleeve.

So like the necktie and long sleeve.


So like the all black motif here. The short pants is in now.


 I would love to have a floral shorts so as a blazer....

This guy nailed it....love the style and the blending of the colors.

The floral shirt is so cool.


Wow....I don't know if I could carry it well, if I'd wear both the shirt and the trouser.

Simply classic...this guy reminds me that I need to lower down my weights.

Reblogging: 16th Truth About The Kids of Today's Generation

A very inspiring blog post from Idealist Revolution


When I look around at kids today, my mind is blown. On one hand, I've watched a four-year-old handle an iPad better than my father. They've grown up with this technology and adapted to it, learning about it quicker than any other generation. They have access to any and all information at their fingertips. At the same time, they're bombarded with the world that is social media, and it's easy to see the effect that it's had. Selfies and short attention span seems to be the norm.
These 16 facts about kids nowadays are sadly true. You'll have to laugh your way through it to keep yourself from crying.

1. They see the world through the screens in their hands.




2. They don't realize what a pound key is.





3. They live in a cordless world.

And they'll never have to understand the frustrations of wanting to talk in private, but the phone was in the kitchen so you could only go as far as the cord stretched. Or talking to your crush and finding out your little sibling was listening in on the conversation from another phone the whole time.




4. Their entire lives are on their phones.




5. Their priorities are a little off.



6. They share all of their information, every little detail, online.



7. Then there is this....



8. They're clueless when it comes to the classics.


9. Their sense of socializing is sitting next to each other and texting, tweeting, posting, and messaging...but not actually talking.



10.  Their version of adulthood is skewed.




11. Their vanity is increased by the number of selfies taken in every place and for every occasion...including going to the bathroom.



12. Their technology is so intuitive and responsive that they cannot understand the pains of dial-up and floppy disk days.



13. They have all the latest technology..



14. ...And don't appreciate it. They're always wanting the newest version.



15. They're doing more grown-up things, without actually having the grown-up brain to accompany.



16. Seriously...what happened to guys and girls standing on opposite sides of the room instead of dancing together?!



Childhood.. what happened to you??

Reblogging: 5 Accountability Questions To Ask Yourself Today

Here are five accountability questions to ask yourself today and every day, which I have found online. Truly enough, it hit rightly in my heart re-evaluating myself every now and then. Be blessed while learning from this sermon at: Faithnews.com

How Much Time in Prayer and in the Word?

I try to discipline myself to pray before I get out of bed and then to read my Bible before I have any breakfast. My own flesh wants to resist that, but I hold myself accountable and ask, “How much time have I spent in prayer today? How much time have I been in the Word of God today?” Most of the time the answer is “Not enough!” but at least it is some time spent as opposed to no time. I honestly can’t remember the last time I went a day without starting out with prayer and Bible reading, and the last time I did, I probably felt miserable and convicted. If I don’t get into the Word of God daily, the Word of God won’t get into me.

What’s My Priority?

Is my goal or priority to make friends, influence people, and gain in popularity, or is it to glorify God and try to be an effective witness for Christ? I believe we were created to glorify God and to help in rescuing those who are perishing. If my goal is anything other than that, then I am holding myself accountable and must “reboot” my day, start over again, and zero in on why I am here and what I am to be doing. Jesus sought to glorify the Father, and the Father wanted to glorify Jesus (John 17:1, 5), so shouldn’t that be our goal, too, and isn’t that why we were created?

What’s My Earthly Ministry?

Our first earthly ministry next to our ministry for the Lord is to our family. In fact, the qualifications for being a shepherd depends on this because he “must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church” (1 Tim 3:4-5), and “a deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well” (1 Tim 3:12). Since all believers basically are ministers of God, we must make sure that our families are our first priority, next to God, and that absolutely includes our spouse. Have I spent time with them today? Have I told them I love them? Have I helped them in ministering or serving them today?

Praying for Others?

It is so easy to tell others that “I will pray for you” and then forget all about it. I ought to know; I’ve done it. I often head to bed late at night and stop and think, “Is there someone whom I told I’d pray for? If so, have I?” I am accountable for what I said I would do. Samuel said in his farewell address to Israel, “as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you” (1 Sam 12:23). If I say I will pray for someone and don’t, then that is sin to me and I have just lied to someone who really needed me to pray for them after I had promised them I would. That hurts! Please forgive me for those times, Lord. Help me to remember to keep my promises.

Evaluating the Tongue

This is one of the hardest things to manage: the tongue. What were my words used for today? Were they judgmental? Were my words edifying for others? Did my words build up or tear down? The tongue is one of the smallest members of the body, but it can set an entire forest on fire (James 3:6). It can do a lot of good, but it can do a lot of harm, too. We can bless people with it, but then curse them, too (James 3:9-12). I need to constantly inventory what my words were today and what they will be used for tomorrow. Ask yourself, “Did what I say today help others or hurt them?”

Conclusion

We are all going to have to give an account someday for everything we’ve ever done and every idle word we speak (Matt 12:36). That’s a sobering thought, isn’t it? I want to be holding myself accountable for what I do today because God will.

May God richly bless you,

Pastor Jack Wellman

Photo Blog: Songkran Festival - 2015

Just luxuriating in my 1 week holiday nearby with a College-mate as my tour guide around too. The scorching heat of summer is no exemption for Thai to celebrate their New Year's eve or in local term Songkran. It is the biggest celebration in Thailand and my first eulogize, as a victim of their water blasting.
