The Shopping Meltdown
Wednesday, May 8, 2013 || 6:29 AM
Hi, sorry for the lack of updates! MMTP has been undergoing some major changes. Some of you have posted comments or asked us about it. We'll let you guys know more once everything's settled down :)
Meanwhile, it's been almost a year since our last offline event. Did you guys come down for The Fashion Uprising with ChicKissLove, and the Suntec event with ST Classifieds last year? This year, we'll be at EXPO again with CKL!
Our Spring designs are in, with tons of lace and florals, as well as spring/summer trends like vintage boatneck cuts and dungarees! Get a sneak peek of these items firsthand at the event this weekend. Just to whet your appetite, here's 2 of my favourites.
We are also releasing our Spring designs at discounted prices, and giving out MMTP vouchers at the event, so you won't walk away empty-handed! :) We are still thinking about a clearance corner..If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see, do feel free to drop us an email!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 || 3:49 AM
hello again. this blog is super inactive and i feel like i should punch myself for that, but im also cowardly (and also scared i ruin my already-ugly face)....and so......i shall blog!
recently, i have been taking alot of OOTDs (and posting on Instagram - follow me at @mattanggg and Serene at @sreneee)! i look like i have become vainer..but the truth is that i have always been vain - just that i'm more shameless now and more willing to spam Instagram with my ugly OOTDs!
River Island elbow patch purple tee + River Island washed studded jeans
ASOS printed pocket shirt + ASOS tailored brown pants + Zatchels navy satchel
River Island aztec cardi (which my dad hatesss so much cos it's too girly/flamboyant/outrageous/ugly) + Bangkok brown cheapo shorts + ASOS basic white tee
Zara black cable knit sweater + River Island studded washed jeans + MMTP black envelope clutch
ASOS green striped tee + River Island yellow skinny jeans
H&M blue shirt (3-4 years old already, but still loving it so much!) + River Island grey skinny jeans
River Island (yup....i know....again....) denim shirt + Zara green skinny jeans
Fourskin basic pocket tee + Zara green skinny jeans
anyway! i'm in class now and it's soooo boring! and as always, i have not been studying and i have such a huge backlog, its so freaking scary..... BUT the worst thing is that, even though i'm so stressed with school, i'm not doing anything about it! in fact, i have been going out and going drinking so often, it's like i have nothing else to do.
PRIORITIES, yo, PRIORITIES. need to sort that out.

Happy New Year! We are extremely excited about 2013. Hope it's been treating everyone well.
If you haven't already noticed, with the new year, we decided to give the MMTP website
a facelift. We'd previously received feedback from customers that the previous Livejournal layout was difficult to navigate and slightly confusing. Hopefully with this new and simpler layout, shopping at MMTP is now fuss-free ;)
New year also brings about new colour trends. Just checked out Pantone's reported Spring 2013 colour trends - quite exciting!
Look out for the colour trends in action at MMTP this week
We have so much in store for the Chinese New Year collections, can't wait to launch them. Expect tons of florals/prints and lace, and watch this space for previews!

of the lazy bugger - Part II
Saturday, December 1, 2012 || 2:20 AM
these days, i just keep seeing myself as a lazy piece of lard. and i have proof that i am lazy, so i'm not just putting stupid ideas in my head like just some goon/ah-siao (or maybe i am).
1. SICK, BUT DIDN'T STUDY MUCH EVEN AFTER RECOVERY
i was sick the entire week before the start of my exams, but i still did not buck up and wake up my idea even after i recovered (only recovered on day 1 of exams). since i recovered, i have just been in lazy-mode and just kept indulging in sleeping, watching videos while doing mmtp and everything else but studying.
okay, actually, i was quite poorthing i have gotta say (self-pity, you may call it. then i will say that you are just being too self-righteous blahblahblah. and then you can call me quarrelsome, which i think i am, so i lose):
my 3 sit-down exams this semester are on 26 Nov, 28 Nov and 3 Dec (yes, one more paper 2 days later). i had terrible cough 15-19Nov, and a super-duper terrible fever virus 19-26Nov (the cough was still present throughout this period, but the fever was the more drama-mama one).
basically, i went to the hospital A&E department a few times, went to see chinese sinseh a few times, went for chinese massage two times, and more or less slept my entire week before exams away (cos i was too drowsy from the medicines half the time). the persistent and super annoying fever kept fluctuating between 37.5degrees and 39.5degrees (hitting at least 39degrees at least on 5 days) and i had headaches, super bad bodyaches and had to live with the irritating cough too. in short, damn jialat.
i only somehow miraculously felt better, with the fever disappearing suddenly, on the exact day of my first exam. even so, i had to go for a chinese massage 2h before my exam time cos my body was still aching so badly even though the fever was gone.
so, even though i really wanted/felt the need to study for my exams, i didn't study much throughout the 1.5 weeks period immediately prior to my exams. if you saw me, you'd have understood why. on a few days, i spent 20h in bed just going into and out of sleep. when i was awake, i was just busy eating medicines that made me sleepy again, and which include:
1) 3 types of fever medicines, all given by the hospital, one after another, after each failed to make the fever go away
2) 2 bottles of cough medicines, cos the cough persisted beyond the finishing of one bottle of cough medicine.
3) Anti-biotics (which didn't seem to help at all for one entire week), flu medicine, sore-throat medicine
4) Alot of chinese herbal stuff - ling yong, chrysanthemum, qi grass, han ka grass....and whatever else my parents boiled which i might have left out cos i just drank blindly
5) Frog+bittergourd soup - an uncle recommended it as it is supposedly very "liang"/cooling, but it was really very gross and totally puke-inducing......
and another moral of the story is that falling ill is super expensive - i think about the money spent on my illness i damn heart-pain/emo.
2. EVEN THOUGH I AM STILL IN THE MIDST OF MY EXAMS, I CAN'T STOP MYSELF FROM DOING MMTP ONCE IN A WHILE
yes, i am not done with my exams. even so, and even though i already didn't study much cos of my illness (and all-along laziness), i am still spending a lot of time on MMTP! i can't help myself, i don't know why - i feel guilty for not studying, but the guilt has not much effect -.-
and so, after i recovered, i immediately went back to MMTP-work-mode:
1) went to the suppliers' and lugged a lot of stocks home;
2) had an mmtp photoshoot yesterday, which took 5h including prep time (or actually more than that);
3) am editing photos for yesterday's shoot;
4) replying comments every now and then.
and now, i have decided to abruptly end the post, but with a few photos i am done with for mmtp's next collection. it's basically just one item (MMTP's leather strap chiffon top), but in 3 colours. this top is super awesome and can match so many types of bottoms, worn tucked in or out! and it's a sell-out design at Vainpot and KissJane Citylink/Vivocity - many of those who have tried it and seen it in reality loved it!
MMTP leather strap chiffon top in black, matched with the MMTP colour-exclusive tweed pleated skirt we have just launched in our latest collection
The tweed skirt is of really good quality, and we are selling it at a super awesome price of $27.50 with free normal postage (you will think the price is awesome too if you know the quality of it!)
MMTP leather strap chiffon top in indigo, matched with the gorgeous cream floral pleated skirt (which we have restocked in size XS - and we have also restocked the black version in sizes XS, S and M)!
MMTP leather strap chiffon top in cream, matched with the MMTP fray smurf blue denim shorts (which, i have to say, is a super good basic shorts for keeps! we are using it for every photoshoot now!)
MMTP leather strap chiffon top in cream, matched with our upcoming black basic cotton peplum skirt (this skirt is so damn gorgeoussss and serene says its's damn comfy! definitely one for keeps, yo.)

new shoes every collection at MMTP!
Tuesday, November 6, 2012 || 2:35 AM
this is embarrassing. i'm like a lazy bugger who has a blog but refuses to blog even though people are still graciously checking back for new posts/updates.
and so, i'm sorry. i really am. i always want to blog but can't really find the time to do so, and i ALWAYS feel so bad. i know we can always make time for anything we really want to do, but i find that i don't even get to sleep enough these days, so....yeah.
anyway, it's exam period for me, which means CRAZY/INSANE/SIAO/DIE-LIAO. but as usual, the busier i am supposed to be with school, the busier i get with MMTP, and the lesser time i actually spend studying. that's SO TRUE. apart from the 24h take-home exam for Comparative Corporate Governance which took place on 3 Nov 11am - 4 Nov 11am, i have just been doing MMTP day in day out! even though i feel so guilty for not studying when everyone is mugging soooo much, i also feel guilty when i am not doing MMTP - so the latter sort of cancels the former out.
(P.S.: i went back to law school on Sunday for our outdoor shoot, and saw so many people in school studying! OMG so scary/competitive - not that i didn't know this last time, but still!!!!)
also, because i haven't found the "chance" to blog, i have been encouraging serene to blog! now that she has quit her job to do MMTP full-time (phew, and yay!), hopefully she will be blogging more! she has also revived her personal blog - so do check it out too!
in future, she will probably blog on her personal life there, and more on MMTP (our lives evolving around MMTP, previews for collections etc) on this blog :)
finally, just wanna say a little about the shoes we have on MMTP! we used to sell shoes long ago, stopped after a while due to constraints on storage space, but we have decided to start bringing in shoes and selling on MMTP once again! since shoes are apparently girls' bests friends, this is something worth celebrating yeah? YAY!
Here are some shoes we have launched:
suede gold-capped pumps (sold out!)
so classic you can never go wrong with this! and you can match almost any outfit with this!
weaved shoes with tassels - my favourite!
this pair of shoes looks so expensive and pretty! if there was a guy version i confirm buy.
and i love this photo!
studded suede loafers (sold out!)
looks and feels expensive - but only at $32 with free postage *drops jaw! no wonder sold out hehe!
black/gold weaved sandals
this is another classic - serene kept one and she kept wearing it cos it just matches almost everything la!
she wore it with maxis, maxi skirts, denim shorts (not only during photoshoots) - really anything and for every (casual) occasion!
and here's what you may expect in our upcoming collections:
gold buckle suede loafers & studded faux-leather pumps
serene wearing the gold buckle loafers!

sorry for the lack of updates!
and because all my past posts have been super wordy, today's shall just be a bombardment of my camwhore shots (mostly taken before i go to school). pardon my vanity and narcissism.
and in these pictures are some of my favorite pieces, so don't get all too judge-y if you see me wearing them over and over again.
the oldest photo of the bunch - before i lost even more weight.
i love such huge picturesque prints.
first time in a long time doing layering. haven't been wearing all my cardigans (mostly cos of the weather), but decided to throw this topman denim shirt over my white plain tee one day. sweat a lot that day though.
love this outfit (and my brown faux croc-skin laptop bag).
my only polo tee camwhore shot. only time this year i wore a polo tee i think.
here matched with eblue pants.
eblue pants again, here with multipocket white shirt.
i love white shirts can!
my fav navy long sleeve tee. love it to bits.
stripes will always be at the top of my list! and navy + stripes shall be the champ.
love navy and love stripes man.
topman xs denim shirt (which doesnt look denim)
featuring my river island skinny jeans! i love all my jeans/pants!
my fav basic plain tee. before i got this tee, i didn't think i would love green this much!
i know i look like a kid here (quite a few people told me this when i wore this outfit), but who caressss! haha
so many people are doing everything and spending so much to look young, so no one should get too judge-y about me looking like a 12-year-old kid when i'm 24. i will get my chance to look and be old one day.
