To Manchester x Rock On Ruby


From Bangkok to Florida, Chicago, London, Kathmandu, California and etc These cities have unquestionably taught me how to appreciate life and living things because my life itself is not merely about street fashion but music and travelling as well. In other words, these factors make me feel alive. 

Some of you may perceive that I am moving to Manchester, United Kingdom in September and will be a blogger based, also study international fashion marketing management for my Master Degree for a year. It is definitely not the 1st time moving, but it is my very first stage of "moving alone" And the fact that I am still not getting used to British accent&culture that much. I lived in United States before but I had friends to support me, or in fact my life didn't even have such assertive purposes in those days. So, life was pretty smooth and fun during the verge of becoming a pre-adulthood. However, why Manchester not London this time? 

Actually, I love city life, I love being inspired, I love living in massive cities like New York or Chicago, but the characters within Manchester can fulfill my needs in street fashionMoreover, my goal is to do something with fashion in town, so I absolutely need to discover and do things as many as I possibly can. Even though, its size is not that big compared to where I have been before, it still a good option to give it a shot. Some people even said to me "Oh! why you have to go there? What are you gonna do with fashion in such city like that? People are so rude, the city is dirty blah blah blah" But if you are a city girl, you will understand the way of life in a big city. And I love it like that. Well, if you live in Chicago before, that means you have passed the test of risking your life in such a dangerous city (Still wanna go back though lol) Especially, going solo will be an extremely risky yet interesting experience. 

Am I nervous? Yes, of course! But i don't really give a S*** about it that much. I know my feelings, and I let them stay there without having any influences on my track. Plus, America has taught me so well of how to be strong and handle unexpected situations. This story sounds like a movie but it really an actual "based on my true story"


"I had never expected to sit on the pavement of the street just to wait for a random transportation to go back home but it happened in Orlando, Florida 6 years ago. I got on a bus to go to another town which I had to do something with my paper work, unfortunately I was informed that I came to the wrong place. OMFG! It took me an hour on the bus just to get here and breath for 5 minutes! So, I had to catch another ride to go back home. However, it wasn't that easy since there weren't any buses...lol I had a phone but i didn't know who to call because I had just arrived Orlando a day before. I tried to go from stores to stores in order to ask for help but few people speaking English because they were Spanish. At the end of the day, I sat on the street and waited for luck to come. I was really scared though because I didn't even know if I would be able to make it home. Think about the movie scene of Hangover or anything that the characters have to hitchhike strangers' cars. Oh yea, I was so lucky to experience such a movie scene like that! Finally, the bus came in hour later which means I could finally catch it to downtown....:)"

What I am trying to say is going abroad can be fun and pain in the same time. However, it can be a great moment of your life. Eventually, you will have a story to tell your kids in the future of what you've been through. 

See you in a bit Manchester <3

  44. You'll have the best the time there; without a doubt! Most of the time i travel alone, simply because it's more of an adventure and you learn so many things each time! When you travel alone (or in your case, move on your own) you'll probably make friends more quickly as well, which is a lot of fun!
