interview time with...ANGELINE WOO the MOON CHILD (✪㉨✪)

I was scrolling through tumblr when I chanced upon a really cool image and usually when that happens, I check out the blog that the blog that reblogged it reblogged from the blog (???????). That's when I found Angeline's tumblr and I saw that she had her own personal style blog and I was so blown away by her style and individuality. She's the same age as I am which I thought was super cool and lives in Penang which is pretty close to where I was born, the sunny island of Singapore~ But I moved here to 'Merica 4 years ago though so it's always nice to find people on the interwebs who live in Singapore or nearby because it brings me back to the days when I used to live there (to any of my Singapore friends reading this: I MISS Y'ALL SO MUCH!!!). Anyways, enough of me and back to Angeline...

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Ambitious, introverted yet lively.

How do you keep your skin looking so fresh and kawaii?
My skin is like zombie skin ahahahah. Here's how I care for my zombie skin; I don't. AHAAHAHAHA. I only cleanse my face twice a day, and apply moisturizer right after; these are all NANO WHITE Infinity products. As for my body, I use some lotion called SKINZ UVWHITE cause it smells amazinggggggg, that’s about all.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Having an endless supply of sushi, seaweed and tofu. Okay seriously tho, my idea of perfect bliss would be having my own reserved forest to live in (in a super rad globe-shaped eco-friendly glass house) with the love of my life and having a happy cat as my happy assistant for my future happy fashion brand yah.

What is Penang like?
It's a mega food haven!!!! Besides that, the fashion scene here is ever-growing but people are still unpleasently narrow in terms of opinions. I used to have a ton of different hair colors (blue, purple, grey, green) and I get ridiculed for that by passersby quite a lot. Now that my hair is blonde, which I consider to be the normalest of all normal color, I thought I'd get less ridicules but heck I was wrong. Maybe it's not my hair. Hmmm. But of course, not everyone here is THAT unpleasant. There are also great people around (e.g: the cats and dogs and birds and lizards and cockroaches ahahahahhaha).

If you could change any one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would change my hair color, like, instead of being born with jet black hair, I want to have natural blonde hair instead. So whenever I want to touch up my hair color, there's no need to go through the bleaching process!

Where do you get your inspiration from when picking out outfits?
I honestly don't know.. It's just a matter of mixing and matching. My wardrobe has more shirts than bottoms, so I normally choose a top which I feel like wearing and then miraculously find a bottom to match with it. I'm really into Harajuku street fashion so I guess most of my ideas are derived from the Japanese fashion scene.

What do you want to work as when you grow up?
A fashion designer. And a member of the Black Moon clan.

What do you like to do during your free time?
Besides rotting around in my sanctuary, I do lousy sketches and design simple-handsewn bags. I like to spend time making things, cause ya kno, the thrill of seeing your design coming to live is like.. seeing your first born (I don't know how it feels like but you ghet me ok). Once I get myself a sewing machine in the future, I'm gonna start making clothes! Heheheheheheh.

What are your top 5 favorite songs of all time?
1. Aoki Hibi by the Japanese indie group Plenty (cause it's relatable ok)
2. Shiroi Kuchibiruno Izanai by Mew
3. 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
4. Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead
5. Roses for The Dead by Funeral for a Friend

Where are your favorite places to shop at?
Online!!!!! I’m quite a fan of a local online shop called CAJOYNESS (they sell a variety of clothing from street wears to girly bits) and TEMPTATIONS (they sell pretty interesting stuff too and the owner is just as splendid!).

How would you describe your style?
This is hard.. ummmmm well I like a lot of colors while blending it with black. I’d describe it as casual Harajuku cause my outfits are practically very simple yet I like to mix it with some of my favorite DIY-ed backpacks and many other interesting accessories that I have.

What is the number one rule you live by?
“Never allow anybody to phase you”

What do you want to tell all your fans out there?
Fans!? This is really flattering!! I’d tell them “Be yourself and don’t let other people phase you! We live in a cruel world and the least we can do for ourselves is accepting and loving ourselves. Nobody’s gonna be kind to you so, don’t be mean to yourself, okay? Everything is guhna be ohkay *pat pat* also, thank you all for reading and following and enjoying and admiring and loving my blog, you guys are amazing!”
