Venessa Diamonds for the new year

Venessa Diamonds in the rough.

Well, at least in the rough for some 14 years ago.

And since then, Venessa Diamonds has continued to charm the hearts of Penangites with its sparkles. The brand today, is one of the top diamond retailers in Malaysia that reflects excellence and brilliance.

If you ask me if diamond is a girl's best friend, I would plainly and realistically reply NO. I personally think "diamond is a girl's best friend" is an understatement. Don't get me wrong, I love diamonds. But I believe diamonds do not make you sparkle, but diamonds merely reflect your already-sparkly personality and individual style.

And that is why, I thought it was fitting that the founder and chief operating officer of Vanessa Diamonds, Ms Khoo Seok Wah is the "Diamond Girl" herself - a nickname earned for her entrepreneurship success. Now, she would be a girl's best friend because she has the diamonds! *wink*

Well-known for its Haru, Marry Me, V and Platinum XI diamond collections, Venessa Diamonds has also launched a new series - Venessa Life Codes which offers gems and numerology reading.

For lovebirds, you'll be thrilled with the latest Valentine's collection! Be sure to swing over, and perhaps a string of love this Valentine's Day may eventually lead to tying the knot.

Perhaps, surprise your loved ones with a gift of luck that sparkles...

And if you're into antiques, Venessa Diamonds is in the midst of bringing back charms of the old-world to the modern-day luxury. I'm going to leave you with that, no spoilers here! *wink*

Never lingering too long in its comfort zone, even after being awarded the first diamond specialty store to receive the ISO certification, Venessa Diamonds has continuously scaled greater heights to stay on par with competition as well as consumer's needs and desires.

I'm not usually a pearl-person, but pearls are timeless classics. And when worn to formal dinners or functions, pearls stand out without excessively blinking for attention, while radiating a certain aura of power... subtly.

And I must admit gleefully that I love this Freshwater pearl necklace, and it can be worn as a bracelet too.

And this season, pearls are totally in! With Christmas that just passed, we'll be celebrating Chinese New Year in a blink of an eye. I'm not superstitious, but in the Lunar New Year of the Ram, I thought a timeless strand of pearls matches perfectly with the gentle nature of a ram. No?

Well, if you're still indecisive, holler over to Venessa Diamonds for a chat with their well-trained team to help you choose one that complements your personality and style.

Which piece of jewellery will you be picking out for the upcoming festivities?

'Tis the season of giving

The only gifts that matter to others are the simple ones, the human ones, the kindness, appreciation, friendship and love. Let us remember your friends, family and even your furry family want our presence more than presents.

Blessed Christmas!

Underneath her clothes

She wasn't alone, but she was lonely.
She wasn't small, but she was invisible.
There was this girl.
This girl that I once knew so well,
probably as much as I had known myself.
She was one who begged to differ.
She wasn't allowed any dog,
so she buried a dead frog
that she found in the school park.
She would scooped glue
from the little tub and ate it.
As if it was some tasteless jam.
She would tear papers into little pieces
and chewed them.
As if they were some leafy vegetables.
In many ways, she was very much
an attention-whore.
"Look at me! Look at me!"
If only you could hear her thoughts
scream out loud.

...and now we get to the hard part. The endings, the farewells, and the famous last words. If you don't hear from me often, remember that you're in my thoughts.

I lost a brother today.
But they lost a son,
a companion,
a best friend,
a confidant,
the apple of their eyes.
