Comparisons

I always knew that I am not the best person on photoshop.
But when you look at it (the right one), you will know that it is terrible, and you have to do something about it, until it becomes correct (the left one) and not that terrible.



I was editing some of Rin's photoshoots. I know, there are more to come, and I have a lot of photos to run through photoshop.

Shoe Drool

Love these.








I am hoping that these interesting styles will be more attainable soon. Away with the too-many peep-toes! But, I am not going for such high heels. I have enough of feet killers.

Leather on Wedding

I attended a colleague's wedding yesterday.

This is the first time I had been "red-bombed".... and also the first time I went to a wedding without my family. Frankly speaking, it is very tiring. I have no idea why attending a wedding can be so tiring, considering that all we do is to talk, sit, eat and take photos. This time round, I was flanked by my colleagues and supervisor. I think this event had given us a chance to see each other, and know each other beyond the office environment. For example, I, a newbie, learnt how knows how to drink, saw ex-colleagues whom I had never met before, finally saw a real life husband-and-wife acting like one at the banquet. It feels better seeing the man watch after the woman whereas in the office, they were more of supervisor and co-workers.

And of course, I brough Mark Sein (my camera) to the event, and everyone who saw it just came to the conclusion that I like photography. As usual, I never answered their questions face on, and avoided answering most questions. When I heard them commenting "she likes photography", etc, I merely ignored them and continue doing my things. And I think they were surprised to find me dressed in leather. Oh well. *laughs*.
But my closer colleagues, my mentor and a senior, commented that I am still in black. My dress is white. FYI.

Outfit composed:
Leather boots, Jacket and Bag
Victorian Choker with locket
White creased dress
crystal hairband
Rose and Armour rings



We walked around Raffles City, which is where the wedding is held, after the wedding, and I love some of the stores. I only took picture of this though, for I had errands to run.

Moving words competition

If you know me (*which you probably don't*), you might know that I participated in the moving words competition initiated by a local poet Miss Madeleine Lee who went to the SMRT with her initiative.

My poem was not shortlisted, but it proves that we (Singapore) do have talents. Please support them, and if you see them in one of the MRT train stations, do not walk on. Please hesitate, stop, read, and contemplate them. You might agree with them, you might not, you might feel something, but know that it is written by people like you and me, people from our everyday lives, who seek to do something.

Some recent purchases

It just occur to me, but the two reflections on the sunglasses makes it looks like.... a glowing pair of eyes in a skull... if you get what I mean.

I AM BACK

From computer crashing,
From being busy *Actually, things are going to get busier now then ever, but I decided I had better update teh blog.*

SuAnn agreed to let me have this blog.
But I won't erase all the previous posts...
they are too precious.

An update to my life so far:
I am rushing a story. Meeting deadlines means that I am suffering for it... in ways I was unconscious of.
I have started work in another place, and the hours are better, though I disliked my job. So there.

I decided to grow up.

Confession

I had been splurging when I should not have.
Just thinking of all my March purchases was ready to get me into a "I am dead" mode. I even wanted to show it to everyone else, but it was not a really lazy affair, so I thought I should leave it be *laughs*. But I did not expect my splurging to continue to april... maybe I should have known.
I can expect my money to drop really really low, like never before before the month even reach it's last week. I feel bad. This is what happens when a poor low-salary man splurges. Let it be a memory for all.

In the mean time, let's look at what I have got today.

Get $50 worth of Clinelle products and you get a free gift. While I know that I will get a $30 worth mask, I didn't know that I wud get the mini samples you see in the front row as well. THat was the surprise. I tried their product, and I really like it. I don't like those blackhead gels that Ginvera and other brands had, but blore's peel-off pack don't really work for people like me, with persistent blackheads and white heads. So I am hoping that this would work. The product is gentle to the skin, and it's not those kind of rubbing gels. It feels wonderful too.

I didn't expect myself to be spending a lot on food, but it's been feeling that way since Monday. -..- My supervisor and friend had been bringing me, alternatively, to good places to eat. Mostly my supervisor.

This is the "Go Geisha" Salad, Wrap up version. The wraps from Salad Shop (or was it Stop?) is EXCELLENT. This is the tomato wrap skin that I am eating here. In the salad itself, there is soba noodles and tofu. Other than that, it's vegetables.

While I went with the given selection, my friend had chosen the given selection, and customised it, changing the tuna to salmon. It looked superb. I love the breadstick sticking out. Oh, and you can totally customise your own salads. When I showed my supervisor this photo, she was surprised that they serve meat too. She had thought they merely make veges, and so she didn't want to step in. But after my review, she placed it in the "to-try" list.

We went to catch the Rio movie today, and before that, it was lunch (or brunch) for me. I was so sorry I made my supervisor wait for like, 30 minutes (-..-), but I did woke up super late. We went to Lenza (i am not too sure the name itself, but it was a MOF place) at Bugis Junction (off the side of it). It had wonderful food, and we had gone there as attracted by the pictures. Let me tell you this - the food is as good as the picture looks. It's real. Ohhh, wonderful! We had the grilled tomatoes with spices in our salad, and other selections. I didn't know tomatoes could taste so nice, since I am one of those people who don't really like tomatoes, and avoid them as much as possible. But this one looked so nice that I attempted one. The mushroom soup was HOMEMADE with chicken in it. The Ice Lemon Tea was homemade as well. You had to pour the sugar syrup in it.

We had the set meal special, where you get the main dish and the salad and garlic bread and soup, but we were surprised that there was a nice and small vanilla ice-cream added to the deal too. It was small, the same size as the small cup of sugar syrup you see in between our ice teas, but I say, given the main dish, salad and soup we ate, the amount was JUST NICE. And the Vanilla Ice cream cleaned up our taste bud wonderfully after the meal.

After movie, and despite our huge lunch, we were hungry. So we went to TCC to have Tete-a-Tete treats, as we had originally planned. The waitress was WONDERFUL! *She should attend the can you serve program* She was gentle and warm and very nice. Really, she didn't do anything special, since we don't have any special needs and nothing troublesome cropped out. Still, when someone is nice and emit such warmth to normal occasion, you know that person is really a good serviceman. I had tea while my supervisor had coffee, and we shared the Tete-a-Tete treats. I am glad I chose Tea. The Tea cup and saucer totally attracted me.


Just to mention, the cookies were of different taste. One of it is the English Rose cookie *I knew it from taste because I had tried it before at the Cookie Museum at Esplanade*, while the other is of a more traditional taste. It's nice with the tea. :)
And I wanted to show the first treat we ate. The eggs in nest thing. The egg is candy (chocolate) while the nest is vietnamese noodles, fried. They taste wonderful on their own, without a need for sauce.
Have you guys been eating well?

Emma Watson and Burberry

Well, she is no longer the face of Burberry, but Emma Watson is definitely enjoying the bond she had developed with Burberry. After I saw the photo of her in this Burberry Bespoke Leather and Canvas Trench, I had fallen in love with it.


I always love trench coats, but not all trench coats appeal to me. And this bespoke, gifted to Emma after it had been customised by Christopher Bailey, is definitely the King of Trench. Opps, I mean the Queen. And Emma does know how to dress up, and Burberry is definitely moving beyond their squares. I can't wait to see more new designs from them!

Other than that, have you guys bought a copy of UW this week? S.H.E.'s hats affair on the cover page is sooo getting into me! I love it! I made hats too, but these are just GREAT! It's just too bad I can't get a picture of it online

Dorothy Perkins doing their little to help Japan

This piece of crude art is entitled "Hope for Japan". A little something I smashed up for this post. Everyone knows what happened to Japan, and many of us cursed the cruel comments and actions of those who were on the lines of "retribution" or "divine interception". But the time is not for cursing now. We need to help Japan. So, when I realised that I could not help Japan, I was quite upset. All I could do was to pick up the leftover papers around me (wrapping papers) and start folding paper cranes, to somehow signify that my thoughts were with them.

But that has changed. It changed when I stepped into Dorothy Perkins store, and saw not only the clothes but also that tin can that stated that Dorothy Perkins would be happy to accept donations for Japan. Now, I am not a fan of Dorothy Perkins. I like their pieces and I always felt that Dorothy Perkin's pieces were nice, but only when you mix them with garments from other brands. And besides, I have never been a fan of branded shopping. But, I must commend Dorothy for this little gesture.

We need to help Japan, and there is no time better than now to do so. If you find that sending money to red cross is a hassle, then just go down or pass by Dorothy Perkins and drop a bit of your change or even money for something you wanted to buy. I am going to sacrifice that money I wanted to buy for something I wanted, but it is worth it.

* UPDATE: 7-11 is doing it as well!

Moving things around

What have I been up to?

Moving things around, that is.
*laughs*

After a sleepover at my friend's rented room, I have suffered from an entire long day of work (from morning to night) while sneezing and blowing my nose the entire time. A panadol helped, but its effects were slow. Other than a one-day flu, I had forgotten my watch and water bottle but brought home an idea that I wanted to shift the things in my room. It feels great, to be moving things around in accordance to an order you wanted. It had been long overdue, I can tell you that.

Of course, it was hard. I had signed up for help, but ended up doing it without waiting for help. Well... an impatient person like me doesn't really wait for help. I thought I might shift two furnitures around (the small table and the bed), but it turns out to be more than that (the headboard and the big table had to be shifted as well in order to make room for the bed).

So, you can imagine me moving things around in the morning, right after I had woken up, and without even brushing my teeth and etc. (i know, i know! But I am that kind of person)... until Finally, I realised I don't have the energy to move things any more (specifically, the huge table that needed two person to move it). So brunch was in order, and we continued after a can of pepsi (popeye like~)

And I was so happy with the new room. I had a half more of the next day to move the little things and trinklets around to fit the new room, and then it was room-warming the day after. And hair-cutting. Yup, cutted my hair. Have no worries. My friends were all amazed with the speed of my hair-growing DNA.

My hair, before it was cut. This is not the entire outfit. I have yet to accessorise, but I like the way I done my hair. 5 braids, 3 big ones and 2 small ones. And it is not my room... I wun be able to stand this being my room, though the location is great for shooting.

THIS is my room.... in transit.....

Can you believe how amazingly messy it was? But of course, it is neat now.


As promised to a friend of mine, I took a photo of this wall before I covered it up with furniture.... painted by urs truly, but... it was a not a good job. Someday, I am gg to paint over it and do another mural. I no longer need these words.

On wedding and on cosplay [when the two shouldn't mix]

Maybe I shouldn't be posting this, but well, some of the content are rather interesting.

Have you considered what is it that humanity really pursued?
We all know that wants always fights a battle with needs, especially when Reality decides it wanted to play. But really, if all needs and wants follows one rule, and if they were all the same, what will happen? Probably Mars crashing on Venus.
In that case, we might as well scrap needs. Let's focus on wants.
What is it that you want?
A new bag?
New shoes (Lots of them)
The latest trends
A real life (whatever real is)
or maybe...
To listen to every single whims you have or ever had.

So while the gang of us were walking down the incredibleness of comifest, we were really laughing at the weirdness of it all. We were able to laugh because there was a clear dividing line in the entire event. While we were at the event, talking and chatting in front of one of the booths, a man came and interrupted us, asking us if we would move and not block the wedding dresses that were on display?

Ooooh, you didn't hear wrongly. A wedding dress. If you didn't went to the event but knew what it was about, you might not know that it is actually a mix between bridal fair and comic/anime event. It is weird, in a sense, but if you consider that there is nothing too weird in this world to be implemented, it is really, ok, normal.

So we were wondering, really, if one of those couples who sat down at the beautiful chairs of the bridal stalls, talking about wedding photos and etc, all the while being surrounded by cosplayers in their gaundy/weird/out of the world/beautiful/detailed/lavish costumes..... how do you feel?
What if (just what if) one of them spotted a costume so beautiful and that she liked so much, she said, oh, scrap that spring 2011 bridal dress! I want that one that girl is wearing.
Of course, she would have to find her own tailor to make the dress from scratch, like so many of the industrious cosplayers.

Nails with a broken attitude

We didn't know there were these kind of things, without a medicure by some clever professionals. But they did exist.

Call them cracked effect nail polish, or crackle nail polish, whatever. They are just too cool. All you need to do is to apply the colour you wanted for the base (rmb your base coat, of course - I always forget because I love to), and then this cracked effect nail polish. The result is instant (thought you HAVE to wait for the polish to dry), and what that came out was a set of beautifully "medicured" cracked nails. Its random, and it is totally cool.

To top it off, they even have different colours. You don't need to get stuck with grey, you can enjoy the mysterious black, the loyal blue, or the superior purple. If your seller have them, that is. Many brands have come up with variations, so you might want to check out the market for the effects and the prices. E-bay is a good place to start *grins*

Here is another photo for your viewing (a how-to):


I love these. Like, totally.

Black Face

My face was black from the Shiseido mask my RabuRabu and I bought at an online store. There were 10 of them, and we splitted them up, 5 each... I think. The only thing is that, I dun remember where I had tossed 2 of them. Oh well, I will find them. I found one as I was typing this.... which is weird enough.... But this just goes to show that I am an amazing squirrel.

ANNYYYWAAYYYY....

About the Shiseido Mask (Black in colour, in case you wana know). Is an amazing mask, according to the sales provided by the online shop. I had wanted to get rid of blackheads on my nose, and a lot of whiteheads elsewhere too. So we thought we would buy it and try it out.... and it is amazing.. in a way that it seems to remove all the hairs on your face.

The mask is liquid-form (can probably be described as gooey or sticky), so you have to apply it onto your face carefully. Do not underestaminate the word "carefully". Other than that, allow yourself to interpret the word in any way you wish. I would suggest you actually use a brush to apply the mask, but... well, I am too lazy to do so, and I got my hands all blacky and gooey... and I even get them in places I din want them to. Hairs stick on them as I apply (which I had forgotten from my previous experience to tie back my hair), so ya, tie back your hair. Use hair band. Everything you need to prevent yourself from going bald. Shiseido Mask is very powerful. Remember that.

So, after applying (unevenly because I have no brush :P), I decided I needed a nap, and went to get one, where after I woke up, I felt my face so tightened it is unbelievable. I was considering to buy some of the face-tightening masks from Watsons in their current promotion, but I don't really think that is necessary now.... so when you feel that tightening, you know it is time to remove the mask... and starts the torture.

Can you even BELIEVE the pain it took to remove a black mask from your face?? It totally sticks to those hairs on your face, and .... ah, the pain. Well, a bunch of blackheads got stuck in it, and white ones too, so I am not really complaining... but the pain.

It is true that my face feels cleaner and better after the mask, but I think that might be a psychological effect. So ya... try it anytime you want. Just beware of the pain.

My daily-essential-glasses, which have nothing to do with the topic, but heck ya. I love my randomness.

Guitar picks

- I wanna start shopping again! - *Ohhh, nvm my rantless shoutings.... now to get to the topic..*

While I was just passing through a mini bazzar kinda thing in a shopping mall, I happen to saw some picks, and remember how I used to shop for it once. I had wanted to make necklaces from them, and had asked my friend for advice, only to find out that she actually collects them. Frankly speaking, I have no idea if she had these already, but I think they make a cool present, no?



Now, I have a few months to figure out how to make it into a nice present. =)

On another note, I have found a 20cents Spain euro coin.... shall we go Spain next time?

I feel guilty

I have not been posting much, even though I have such a wonderful blog, left to me by dearest SuAnn. I like to think of it that way, you know? And I do think that blogging is cool.

I have been complacent, but sometimes, I think it is ok.

How is everyone?

I am getting myself rested. I have not rested for a long time, and things have been shooting in the wrong direction. Therefore, rest is commanded, and for once, I am not gg to ignore the things that I wanted to do, and needed to do. I am going to sleep and rest well, and I am going to be early for work (again after so long!)

I will not be doing that many pictures, since I have no time for them, but when I do, I shall hope to share them asap. :P

People, how had the new year been so far?
It is going to get better, so long as we work hard towards it.

About a week  ago, I saw a young lady in the station, and she was so well dressed that I was trying to admire her without seeming rude. You know how that feels, when you wanted to admire someone for dressing up so prettily, but was afraid that it wud be rude? Well, I mean, it is not as if that someone is a model or a celebrity with her picture slammed in front of the magazine.... and people do feel weird when others stare too much.

BUt I shall try to describe what she wore. Everything was in place and in theme.

She wore a boyfriend's shirt (classic white) with only one or two buttons at the bottom buttoned, and something white underneath. A blue jeans, 3/4 and folded up neatly to reveal beautiful checkered socks and stylish sneakers-shoes. Her bag was one of the those big rectangle sling bags that you find people wearing a few seasons before, white with blue words.

See? Past season things can be useful. Dun cast your old bags away!

A few start

I am feeling wild.
I am starting new things.
I wonder if it is a good thing.
But I want to have at least one success.
Just one.

Happy Lunar New Year 2011

I will be viewing flowers this year.

I happened to pass by these flowers, and I thought they were nice enough to share with everyone. So, out comes the HP, and a bit of editing done on photoshop, and I hope you guys like this.

If possible, I hope to share a bit of the photos, so this shall become a sort of prelude.
Rest well, everyone, and please do take care in this horrendous weather.
