Anti Black Head Mask and Other Stories


Hi peeps!

So the other day, I purchased this anti-black head mask from my friend for just RM10! How awesome is that? 

I was planning on getting an anti black head mask from Cosway but that one cost nearly RM40. 

I'm glad my friend tagged me in her FB post :P


So this is it. It's a pretty decently sized bottle. Very decently sized to say the truth.


And then when u squeeze it, it looks like toothpaste. Heck, it smells like toothpaste too!

I applied it on my whole face and man, was it satisfying to see all that white stuff coming out. Yeahhh...


I've already used it twice so far and I like what it does for that price :) 

The first was like I said, whole face. The second time was just on my nose and cheeks area. Because, girl you don't know. It's PAINFUL pulling the whole damn thing off your WHOLE face. And time-consuming. 

Anyway, my "heads" are normally just on my nose. So yup.


And then my friend gave me this FREE mask to go together with my purchase! Thank you Wahwah :) <3

I used it already. Haha.

Ok, next story.

I went down to KL for a couple o' days 2 days ago.

Met up with Jb at MV.

Ok rant a little first ah. 

I was starving at that time. But both of us couldn't decide what to eat. No, not both of us. Just me. Cuz he's ALWAYS like "up to you, anything you like, you decide, whatever you eat, I'll eat."

Thanks a heap dude... 

Next time I'm gonna face palm his face.

Anyway, we ended up eating at some thai stall in The Gardens. Which was a prettaayyyy bad idea. 


Their kuey teow was just... TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE.

And so pricey... =.=

But because I was hungry, I just pushed it down my throat to fill up my tummy. Aaahh! Should have went to Kenny Rogers or Pizza Hut or something. 

Other than that, our date went pretty smoothly after that :)

We also watched Hansel & Gretel. And I don't know about you, but that movie was AWESOME.

Action movies where the female lead is like some kick-butt super heroine... I'm sold.

Resident Evil, Salt, Violet, Gretel... whatever man.


This was me in Shanel's car the next day. I wasn't feeling comfortable that time. THE BUST AREA OF MY DRESS JUST KEPT FALLING!!! I had to keep pulling it up. Pull, pull, pull. Should have trialed at home and then I'd know I had to buy some tape. 

You don't know how much I suffered :(

ANYWAY, we were heading for an interview somewhere both of us were clueless about. So we got lost quite a couple of times. And it was getting hot, and time was ticking away. But, FINALLY found the place lah. Phew. 

After arriving at the place, I rushed to cellophane my dress. Haha.

Wasn't perfect, but it did help a little. At least it held up during the most critical time.

Lesson learned. ALWAYS, ALWAYS trial wear your attire.

Anyway, amidst all that going on right now, I have to focus on my studies. So I bought this really cool mind map book from MPH. And so far, it has made studying a little less dull and a little more gratifying :)

Thank you ah Jb <3

Ok, gonna hit 'publish'!

Collagen Crystal Eye Bag Mask

Yo :)

Did some shopping with Angel the other day and bought this dress I really, really, really, LOVE. Omg. Can't wait to wear it.

I also bought some eye masks I'll be talking about below.



So I purchased these really cool jelly-like eye masks from Qbox at BB. First time trying out gel-like mask. Usually it's just sheets for me. I'm green like that.

One for RM3.

Buy 10, free 10 for RM30. First time hear this kind of thing. Haha. Do the math, RM1.50 each. So I took 10 pairs, Angel took the other 10.


Like all eye masks, this one claims to reduce puffiness and dark circles. And since it's collagen, I guess it also firms up the skin around the eye area?


The consistency is neat. Like... flattened nata de coco (sea coconut).


Looks like my passport photo *sigh*. Especially with that blue background. Okayyy... it's really looking like a passport photo la. Shit. 

Anyway, it says to use a pair a day consecutively for 3 days. Then after that use whenever needed. And that's what I did my friend.

Today's the 3rd night and...... I don't know whether there's any visible result. Haha. 

It's not like I scrutinize the degree of darkness under my eyes everyday. Because I have naturally deep set eyes, there's always a shadow cast under my eye. 

Anyway that's besides the point lol. But there's this psychological effect after applying. Like I FEEL my under eyes get brighter... even though, you know, it may not. Haha.


So after having enough eye-time, I transfer the still-slightly-wet masks to... my neck, arms and hands. Haha. I'm gross like that. But hey, waste not.

And so here ends another random review.
____________________________________________

Ok, ACCA news. Passed 2 of my Dec sitting papers. Oh wee.

I most probably am going to be taking 2 papers this time round instead of the perceived 3. Because although I passed all my other previous papers, I don't like my marks. So I hope I can pull up my marks this time round. Although I know the professional papers are a notch tougher :(

Sleepy time. And I have to take care of my pou too.

Ta!

CNY CNY


CNY's celebration this year lasted for something like 5 days. Like previous years, whole family traveled outstation to get together with the other clans. 

This year was omg super tiring, but very memorable :)

First stop, KL.



Ok, the 'g' is missing, but... who cares? It's still chocolate :D


Bui Kor leading the honorary cake-cutting ceremony.



Jee Kor *peace*


Merlin and I.


Cousin Wong no.1 ;)


Cousin Wong no.2 :P


Kong kong!


Daddy O looking very happy.


Lunch was home made asam laksa :)


Reunion dinner steamboat style.



Ladies' club.


Next stop: Popo's house...


...which I basically camwhored with Merlin.




3rd stop: Taiping during chor 3.


Taiping amah and momma the great.


Second cousins. 1Malaysia :D Haven't seen them for years omg. Can't even recognize.


More cookies. Omg, I am so sick of food.

Then to Sa Kim Poh's house.


The Tan clan.

I went up to Genting with parents on chor 1 to send Skinny back to work. And then I went into the casino for the first time as a customer! *squeals*

The last time I went into the casino was 2 years ago as an employee. 

I won RM25 that night on roulette! :D No joke ok??


During chor 2, the whole family went up to Genting. The weather that day was F***ING COLD. The mist at 4pm was like... I dunno what to say lah. Just imagine the mist at night. 

Because it was chor 2, there were A LOT of cars. And I mean A LOT. So we parked outdoor. And what a decision it was...

The walk from where our car was parked to First World Hotel was....

THE HIGHLIGHT OF CNY. 

Haha. No, I'm serious.

It was so cold and windy by the time all of us reached the hotel, my hair was soaked.


On the way up.


Boo.

Ok back to chor 3. So after the Taiping road trip, we stopped by Ipoh Kinta City for shopping... with angpau moneeyyy :)


Oppa Gangnam performance.


Then daddy treated us to Secret Recipe.

And Merlin and I bought lots of things I will showcase in my future posts. I finally bought stuff I've been wanting to get since forever. No lah, since a few months back.


Ok done with this obligatory cny post. Wheewww...

Hope everyone enjoyed their cny's :)

Orait. Next post will most probably be a shopping haul post ;)

xoxo

Blogging with instant noodles

It's 1 something in the morning and I'm having tom yam maggi mee, blogging. Because I can't sleep. I think I've been sleeping really late recently, I can't seem to sleep early now. Damn. I know it's not good for my skin. So why can't I just bl**dy sleep already? My mind is racing. I hate that feeling when I just can't stop thinking. Agh. With my results coming out SOON and other crap. This doesn't get any easier.

Sleeping problems aside, grandpa and aunties are over for a visit! I feel so festive already. Can't wait to go to KL for CNY :)

Digressing...
_________

I remember vividly the last time I expected so much to happen, but then nothing happened. I waited, and waited and waited. No news.

So this time, I'm trying to figure out what went wrong. But I do know that whatever I do now, I have to up my game, play everything a notch higher. If I really want something, I have to give it my all. Either full-ass or no-ass.

SAVE THE MONEY

This has been difficult for me, because I have a habit of spending on things I don't really use consistently. Especially on skincare and make up. I buy them once in a blue moon. But when I do...

Actually I don't mind buying stuff that works for me and that sees me always grabbing for it. But thing is, because I sometimes buy on impulse without research, stuff that I buy are usually just for... collecting dust.

After years of experience, I'm glad, thank god, I've finally gotten the feel of what I prefer, what works for me and what I can see myself using in the long-run.

And this year, I'm finding I NEED TO STOCK UP ON NICE CLOTHES. Nuff' said.

I used quite a bit in the recent month, but now I'm saving it back. And I'm surprised the universe is actually giving back quite a lot to me in this short span of time :)

EXERCISE

So the last time I weighed myself, I clocked in 45.1kg. I was, to say the least, pleasantly horrified.

Ever since I lost the bit of weight and actually maintained my weight, I always thought I hovered around 47 kg. But I NEVER EVER thought I could reach 45 kg. But ANYWAYS, I think I'm back to 47-48kg. Whatever. Haha.

To the point. Ever since I started having a fetish for Victoria's Secret Models, I realized that losing weight isn't everything. Those models, their bodies are like goddesses. Like beautiful, toned, proportioned, bronzed,  taut bodies. Not like skinny, saggy, flabby, skeleton-ish - something that my mum is very obviously hinting at me.

Sigh.

But seriously, I don't think I'm that thin. Slim maybe. Thin, no. Heh.

Whatever.

I've been going on jogs with Jb lately. OH YEAH BABY! Let's whip ourselves into shape! Best thing is, he's as pumped up as I am too. So we're both motivating and pushing each other :)

But he's going back around the end of the month. NOOOOO!!!! Why? T_T

Sigh... why am I still awake? dammit.

Ok, gonna do some mind numbing stuff now. Nights' all.

Happy February!

January throwback in Instagram mode.


Visited the newly opened Old Town White Coffee in... new town. Ada hotel punya feel~


First time at Scott Garden to register for the Miss Shanghai pageant. Yeah baby, I was one of the shortlisted girls ;) Little did I know the journey I would begin... 


Went on a bubble tea spree with Merlin - Par Tea Time, Ochado, bubbleone etc. I still prefer Chatime.


Lots, and I mean lots, of food dates with JB. 


Received my very own comic drawn calendar :)


Pizza! Just look at that cheese oozing out....


Mcd breakfast for every single time I came back from KL in the morning that month. 


Basically, the highlight of the month.

THANK YOU!
  1. The chance to participate in Miss Shanghai 2013 and appear on the newspaper
  2. Made so many new friends. I love them all! Broadens my social network
  3. Gained the experience to catwalk confidently, pose. I learned so much
  4. Discovered that smiling all the time on stage is no easy feat
  5. I enjoyed shopping for the pageant. It's like shopping for the prom I never had. The dress, accessories etc.
  6. Enjoyed taking care of myself for the upcoming show: masks, exercising. Having something to look forward to makes it that much easier to keep my motivation high
And then ah. Finally have been going on jogs/brisk walks with JB! :) That is an achievement in its own right.

Now February's here and all I'm thinking of is: studies, Valentine's, CNY

... and other in-betweens that I hope will turn out well ;)

I have been slacking too much in studies last month. So I'm gonna have to double the effort I put into my studies this month to make up for the time wasted.

Goals for the month is:
  1. Exercise more
  2. Study more
  3. Take care of my skin more
  4. Angpau moneeyyyy!
  5. And then save that money
  6. And then device a plan to strategically spend that money 
  7. Then spend that money *grins*
Ok gonna go to the pasar malam now. Have a great month everyone!
