Totes OK

The time I wore a tropical summer outfit during mosquito season.

Hiya friends!

How are you? I hope you're a having a great week wherever you! And... thank you so much for coming here!

I'm sharing with you an outfit I wore a few moons ago when my hair was still short. This simple outfit is great for the tropical weather here in Malaysia. The coral red top has the softest cotton fabric that is super cooling on the skin. The printed pants are made of light breathable cotton fabric. The canvas tote is from Strawberry Queen and it's pretty cute as I just adore the hand with one finger looking like a kitty holding itself in a symbolic A-OK.

If you're in Malaysia when it's sunshine and rain in alternating sessions within a single day, mosquitoes can be a real thing and that is why I am not a fan of wearing shorts in natural spots like this as I'll be scratching my legs like you won't believe. What about those arms, you wonder? Well, I'm a fan of exposing them as they don't get bitten as much compared to my lower torso. What you don't see further behind the concrete is a hidden deep forest that has the rarest butterflies! Some are huge.

I've noticed that yellow butterflies are plenty in the forest park while in the common lake garden where many joggers go to exercise, butterflies are way smaller is size and are in a color mix that is far more neutral, like black and white.

On hot summer days, it's nice to visit the forest park as it has lush ancient trees and thick wild bushes. It is also the quietest with sounds of nature all around. If you're all about immersing yourself in the green, it's always best to find a place near where you live to appreciate as you can always visit them often.

Ever since I started my daily walks since two years ago, I've enjoyed them tremendously and found a peace attached not to a thing but in beingness. It's very liberating as it fills me up with causeless love and I learn so much from all the little things that make up the ecosystem of the little forest and gardens here.

I highly recommend getting lost in the green if you're up to your neck in the concrete. You will not regret it at all!

To end this entry, here's a quote by Alan Watts:

“We do not "come into" this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean "waves," the universe "peoples." Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.”
