Holygrail Lippies!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Whenever it comes to buying cosmetic products such as lipsticks, foundations, etc, I will never fail to turn to Makeupalley for their ratings and reviews. So far, it is still rather the most reliable source (for me, at least) compared to most reviews sites.

Before buying something, I usually weigh out the pros and cons & THINK for a super long time before purchasing it. So that I can lessen my impulsive shopping habit :( But so far, Makeupalley has really saved so much money for me!


1) NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

This is one of the new product that I've recently added to my lippies collection.

Alright babes, this is actually one of the highest ratings lip colour range in Makeupalley for NYX Lip Cream. It gives a lip gloss feel but it's not! It's like lipstick but in a creamy form. And I LOVE IT. The colour is so gorgeous and natural that I couldn't help staring at the mirror every single minute AHHAHA.

For my dry lips, it doesn't highlight the fine lines on my lips and it doesn't dry out my lips either. 
I would definitely crown it as my holy grail lippie if the staying power wasn't that weak :(

It can last prolly an hour or so? Oh well.

2) NYX Matte Lipstick in Strawberry Daiquiri

It's a really pretty shade of pinkish - red and I guess everyone can actually pull it off with this shade!
It does brighten up your face and IF you're having a bad hair day bad eyes day bad nose day or whatever, it will divert their attention away and let them focus on your lips! Hahaha

Tip: I always apply concealer on my lips first to eliminate any fine lines, and then apply lip balm to smoothen it out and lastly, apply the lipstick :)

3) My Holy Grail Product - Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait 025

Yes, I love this!!!!! 

The staying power is really strong compared to most of the lippies products and not only that, I LOVE THE SPARKLY SHINE THEY WILL LEAVE ON YOUR LIPS! It's so pretty and do you know that in several makeup websites they actually won the best lip product?

There are a few shades but I chose the rather natural one, so after applying it, it actually gives you a sweet look and enhances your lips (especially if you've already got great lips) and I COULD GO ON FOREVER.......

Definitely my Holygrail lippy product!

Anyway, I'm just gonna post up some photos of where we've been for the past few weeks hehe.

Night out @ Orchard 

Sometimes I wonder if he really truly means whatever he says...

Anyway, we went to Cuppage Plaza for dinner that day and went to walk along Orchard and I went to Ion to see Kikki.K's new 2013 weekly planner!!!!!

It's rather costly so I just kinda gave up the idea & thought I could get it when I'm a little richer but Dear just bought it for me :')

Here it is!!!!! SO FREAKING PRETTY. Thank goodness the calendar entries allow me to start writing in mid-December if not I'd have died of impatience alr! Hehe~

And another day out at Vivo City........... WHEN I SAW THE GELARE PROMOTION ON FACEBOOK.

And yes we LOVE sweet treats!

I love Gelare Waffles!!!!!!! So fluffy & crispy at the same time!

Yum yum!

"Ready to attack!" Dear said he really love the waffles! Hahaha

Love waffles :)

But I thought that Udders ice -cream was better... I really love Udders! It's becoming my favourite Ice-cream hang out place and the ice-cream there is out of the world. Hehe. Okay not out of the world but it's really nice. Thank goodness Tampines opened an express outlet! (WITH PANCAKES SOMEMORE)

There was another day Dear ended work early at 6pm, so we met up at Nex :)

& Yes, rare occasions when I camwhore at home 'cos normally I'd be rushing for time..
See my lipstick shade? Yes, it's NYX Matte Lipstick in Strawberry Daiquiri!

Anyway, went to Ajisen Gourmet Town since his friend who's the head chef is working there and we went there to try it out :)

Yes.. I am in love with pork broth soup... Love how it goes with the ramen! SO yes, Tonkotsu soup? (& just yesterday Dear & I were at Ramen Champion Bugis Plus and I ate Tonkotsu Ramen again haha)

He ordered quite a handful so gotta wait as the chef prepares...

And Tadaa! And I love the Tako thinggy on the left side. It's nice!

Pardon my dry hair, my big eye bags, and my fat nose. 

My cute boyfriend as always

Well, really had quite a good dinner there & by the time we finished, we were so FULL!
Couldn't even walk, hahaha.


Yesterday after dinner at Ramen Champion, we went to Filme Garde & caught the movie "Army Boys to Men"

& I thought the graphics was really good! It looked so real like Singapore was under attack and Merlion was bombed. & The flyer collapsed! Woah.. I wouldn't want to see that happening but it kinda made me wonder what will happen if Singapore will under such circumstances.. Given my character I'd probably die first. Hahaha.

Anyway  I was a little upset yesterday.....
I won't blog about it, because I guess it's just me being too sensitive.

I've never been like this with any of my past dates/bf because I am not the "worried if he's cheating blah blah" kind. I have no idea why I'm so sensitive, so emotional in this relationship I'm in..

It's not a bad thing, it prolly goes to show how much this relationship matter to me and how much I care for him.. but I don't want to be so tight about everything because I'm afraid I will get too controlling & he's gonna start hating me for it.

Or maybe it's because of some of my previous relationships all those shit jerks put me through which is prolly why I'm so uptight about everything.. Hmph!

Anyway, I'm gonna change for the better and JUST KEEP CALM &  EXERCISE.

Blogilates, here I come!
(Am gonna do pilates bootcamp later ;)

Which means even if I don't feel like doing it, I STILL HAVE TO GO & DO IT.



Life as an intern

Thursday, October 11, 2012

These few weeks working as an intern, having to adjust to the 8.30 - 6 office hours is definitely no easy feat.
Over the past few weeks, I've developed:

1) Severe, and I mean ABSOLUTELY SEVERE dark eye circles
2) Huge eyebags...................
3) Pimples. 'Nuff said.
4) All sorts of weird pain all over my body. Especially headache!
5) Excessive eye shit
6) Possibly even gain lots of weight

Every night I dread the idea of having to sleep late, knowing the next morning I have to wake up FREAKING early. Oh gosh..

 But one awesome thing about my workplace is.........

The people are so nice!
Everyone is SERIOUSLY nice.

That's something I am so happy about! :)

On the first day of internship, in fact, my boss actually treated us to Astons Specialties!
 Ordered grilled fish :-) Don't look tempting but it taste pretty good.....

Just going to blog about some events last month?
I finally went to Jcube for the first time! Dear and I went there during one of the days when I was still on MC, and yes, shopping waits for no (wo)man! Sickness is not an excuse to stop shopping, isn't it? Hahhaa.

Went to their Miyoc outlet and bought this uber chic dip dye denim vest!

 Freaking chio, and it's even better in real life!

Well, since pay day was near, I got myself some apparels from several blogshop.. My most recent purchase was from Missypixie! I bought their maxi dress in a really pretty light turqoise shade and that is SO my birthday dress :P

Bought some clothes from Vauntcloset as well!
Wore one of their asymmetrical pattern peplum top on a Friday when I was on my way to Blackbird Cafe to find dear~

 Asymmetrical pattern peplum top is from Vauntcloset :)

Since I was wearing a peplum skirt that day, I just tucked it in! Love it! 

Despite several attempts to SAVE MONEY, I figured out I might as well just give up. Went to eat dinner at Blackbird Cafe and my boyfriend whipped up a SPECIAL meal for me!

And yes, he combined all my favourite food in the whole.....................
 Mushroom, prawns, scallops are my favourite food in the world!! And this, was just heavenly.

On another lovely Saturday, when Dear worked 4pm, we decided to pay a visit back to Chockfull of Beans again for a late brunch, and they are just conveniently located at Changi Village!

This time, I decided to try out their mango ice blended with real juicy mango bits and whipped cream on top of it :) It was absolutely DELICIOUS. I just couldn't get enough of it! 

Ordered my Portobello Mushrooms with Eggs Benedict! And had a failed attempt at taking a decent polaroid photo.. Sigh but still~

Anyway the past few weeks Dear has been around for almost everyday. He even TRANSFORMED one of my house's old furniture into a brand new one! 

This is actually a fishtank holder but it got rusty so we were quite worried it might give way and break the fish tank. But Dear bought new paint (specially meant for rusty metal) from Homefix and gave it a brand new look!  

After that, he went to OTF aquarium and bought some aqua plants and rocks!

Look at how Dear's arranged the rocks! It's so pretty! Like a garden......

The aquarium has made the house a lot more livelier, together with the newly bought shrimps and tetra fishes!

So proud of him...
I was actually thinking how much we could actually save in the future if we just get old furnis from the gurunguni man and revamped them into brand-new looking ones! But prolly the idea wouldn't last long 'cos I'm not a fan of.. old stuffs user. Heheh :/

Been loving my Instax mini polaroid so much that I guess most of my pay is also spent on instax films? Just recently bought Hello Kitty instax films from Gadget Passion's warehouse.. In fact ,they are prolly the cheapest around in Singapore!

Dear insisted I use it during the month of November... 'cos it's *ahem*, my BIRTHDAY!

Well as seen on my wall, You can already see how frequent I've been using my polaroid..... Hehehe :)

Also bought some stickers to decorate my polaroid! 

Advanced Birthday Celebration for Mummy at Boon Tong Kee!
Well, we decided to give this a try for Mummy's birthday.. and wonder what's all the fuss about!

The outlet we went to was at East Coast Road, and by dinner time (On a Sunday), it was considerably packed. The waiters and waitresses were busy serving customers that somehow, they also mixed up our order which made us feel abit..... :/

Anyway, Mummy loves sea cucumber so we ordered Sea Cucumber and Mushrooms! ($24)
The mushrooms were pretty juicy.. I didn't get to eat the sea cucumber but it was finished within 10 minutes so I assume it was good too? :)

 Boon Tong Kee is well-known for their chicken rice, so of course, their chicken has to be of substantial quality. I thought that the sauce was really nice, but the chicken was cold.........

This seem like any other ordinary vegetable dish, nothing special, but nothing bad about it either. 

Steamed Egg - consisting of 3 different types of eggs. It was the ultimate dish we were looking forward to, but we were greatly disappointed. The steamed egg was so soft that it literally melted in our mouth. It was pretty bland and we thought it was a waste of money.... 

 Overall, I don't think I will be coming here except for maybe their chicken rice. It's not a restaurant that serves GOOD food that makes you crave for more. Just a normal restaurant with normal standard food.

 After dinner, Dear sent my parents home and we went to Woodlands Harbour/Bay/Whatever for dating and coincidentally, it was also Mid Autumn festival!

 And of course, the one behind him..... is his second wife. :(

Yesterday, Dear picked me up from work and we went to Jurong Point's newly opened Malaysia's food street - Boleh Malaysia! I came to know of it after reading about it on the newspaper at work. They mentioned that the food served there are all originated from Malaysia's street hawkers.

Boleh Malaysia is located on the last floor of Jurong Point (Pardon me, I haven't been to Jurong Point before.. And how could I not have?! It was indeed a great mall!) and we were pleased by how the ambience was! It was like a typical food court, however, it did have a Malaysia food street feel to it with the "temporary stalls" with the nostalgic signboards. 

There were already a huge crowd and many people were actually hovering around occupied seats, waiting for them to finish or asking them if they could share seats. Some of the stall vendors are Malaysians, after hearing their accents and their fluent Cantonese.

We wanted to go and try their KL Hokkien Mee and we ordered a small one ($4.50) and the small, is REALLY SMALL. It was quite a miserable portion and I felt quite cheated? 
But it was really good! Even better than the one we tried at Geylang.. but at only half the price!

We also ordered Fried Carrot cake with oysters and something else which we didn't find that nice.

Guess the best dish was the KL Hokkien Mee!

Anyway, after our dinner, we went to Ji De Chi for dessert and it was full-house! Thankfully we still managed to grab a seat and was served promptly. They have Durian snow ice too!!!!!

I was so tempted to try it, but decided to stay focus on Mango snow ice ($5) instead. And the price wasn't that steep either, compared to the other snow ice shops in Singapore.

 Finally it arrived!

Look at the toppings! Yogurt pearls that burst in your mouth and nata de coco! This dish is the ultimate dessert for all mango lovers!

After dessert, walked around Jurong Point before heading to the nearby prawning site.
Well, I guess I got abit upset about some stuffs so yeah, all the crazy stupid girly drama happened. Tried to control how I felt but I just couldn't take it.. Guess it hit me kinda hard. There was so much hurt inside me and so many emotions and thoughts running through at the same time that I just didn't know what to do.

Dear decided to make me feel better by asking me if I wanted to chill somewhere for a drink? I was expecting prolly some bar but he brought me to his old workplace, One Rochester.

I was so in love with the surrounding and ambience that I couldn't take my eyes off everything. There weren't much people there and the ambience was so ROMANTIC!

And yes, we were sitting by the sofa, surrounded by pretty lights and trees..

One Caramel (top)

Ordered a Appletini for myself, and it surprisingly turned out really good and refreshing! Yum! 

Freaking dark eyes (from faded eyeliner) thanks to the drama earlier on.

And I love our sofa cushion seat! 

Well, we kinda had a mushy-serious talk about the future, and I wasn't really expecting much from him, but we started discussing on where we'd hold our weddings at, style of the wedding, the food preparation etc, as if we were really going to prepare our wedding anytime soon -_-

Guess he really made my day that I ended the night smiling and with a lighter heart!

Really love nights like this....
Feel so blessed and loved right now. :)


National Day Frenzy!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Last week, PART of our class went out and hang out at TM :)

Well, we were supposed to go bowling but the stupid Safra closed it for renovation!
Haha, we went to eat Haagen Daz or whatever you spell it and the ice lemon tea is like so nicezzzz but so freaking expensive.

After that, Jeannette and I went into Cotton On and decided to browse through around.. but ended up buying a cropped striped top and a pair of shorts! Hahaha!!

This is the KITTY that Shanon caught!! IT IS SO DROP DEAD CUTE with its polka dot ribbon.

Anyway, just a random picture of the sky on the same day itself, it's so clear!


It's been so long since I met 4/5 classmates!! Thus, we decided to go out on National Day! :D
We were supposed to meet at 5.30pm, but everyone ended up reaching at 7pm :(

Terence was actually the FIRST to reach. Seriously, I couldn't believe it.. Coz he's got the most yellow forms for being late back then, HAHAHA.

We took the MRT, alighted at City Hall and walked all the way to Marina Square to eat Just Acia. Nvm, anyway it's near the fireworks area, so yeah..

Haiz.. Never change at all!

Jessie and I with cool effects behindddd

Many people were inside Just Acia, so we had to wait for seats outside..

Well, when waiting outside, it was kinda bored... so as a result...... :)

The person behind us is really spooky

Finally, there were seats!!
Yet, we still have to be separated 3- 6 because of the number of people we had :(

Yummy, can't wait to order food!!

I look like shitz here, like BIG TIME

The Zombiee

After ordering, Thadshayiniy ran out to watch the fireworks so I went to find her. So many people were actually outside to capture the fireworks because this year's fireworks have got crescents and stars which represents our national day flag!

LIKE SO COOL. But I didn't managed to catch it. -_-

Seriously, I don't know how many millions billions trillions of people were watching us camwhoring with the flash on -_-

"One two three then I will pretend to turn around but actually I'm posing okay??"
"Okay, one two three!"


Then, the fireworks!!

Well, the rest of the photos were like SUPER blurry compared to these two..
We waited for awhile again for another round of fireworks, but my stomach was grumbling so we went back to eat dinner :D

Yummz, the dory fish with melted cheese is the sexxx!

After dinner, we didn't know where to go so wandered around marina square and took MANY photos. Seriously, MANY.

Guys really like to fold their arms when they take photos one hor??

*Bends down* HAHA!

Nicholas is muscular, Terence is also.. muscular. HAHAH :)


Shaun and Terence!

Cherry the fruit and me :)

Weifeng the businessman attending to his 'client' as usual

The frankenstein

Weifeng and Terence!

Terence and me!

LianJie, Leon and Shaun. They look so shy here, HAHA! But they are.. NOT.


Cherry, Weifeng, Terence!

Me and Weifeng :)

Leon, Terence and Shaun!

See, guys like to fold their arms when they take photos!

Among the BEAUTIFUL flowers....... :) HAHA!

Okay la, we decided it was time to finish and touch up on all the camwhoring session since it was kinda late and everyone had to go home..

One last thing, we saw Eugene!
So surprised to see him there, because it's been so long since we last saw him!!

Hehehe, and yup :)
That's for my National Day '10 with my lovely 4/5 people!

It was indeed wisely spent. :)
