Just a thought about being 'NATURAL'

Should I look like this when I take my passport photo later? HAHA. Damn, i hate it when i have to get a passport photo cause i always look weird in it. The school called me this morning telling me to submit my photo tmr so that they can proceed with my student card for UOL (University of London) 

Yeah guys, anyone taking banking & finance in UOL? My bridging course timetable is out and i super hate it cause it starts at 8.30am IN DA MORNING. But luckily it ends at 11.30am in the morning too. So i have lots of free time in the afternoon! But i'm gonna study like mad during this one and half month because i can't afford to spend 3 years on my degree. 

Seriously why must everyone get a degree? I was in deep thought like a few days ago because there's a SQ interview on 1st June. So i was debating whether i should just work/get a degree/work then get a degree. 
Alright, guess you might want to see what i wear at home. LOL. Its a freaking cute watermelon print :) 

Anyway I made 2 more rings today and i'm so happy! My skill is improving and i'm gonna make a ring with my initial 'K' on it soon. 

So actually the reason why i'm blogging is because I think i should blog frequently (at least thrice a week) And obviously because I'm at home the whole day today and I have nothing much to do beside making ring & surfing the net. 
.
.
.

Anyway, is there a trend whereby girls post #nomakeup #bareface pictures of themselves now on the social media sites? I read comments from guys like they were shock how the girls look without makeup. And that they prefer them to have make up on. 

It got me a little annoyed because I THOUGHT GUYS PREFER GIRLS TO BE ALL NATURAL? 

I read tweets from my guy friends saying
 "I like natural looking girls." 
"Girls who are natural are nice" 
"Girls should just be ALL NATURAL!"
"Inner beauty is more important than outer beauty" 
and so on... 

So now we post our #bareface pictures and YOU ARE ALL SHOCKED?

What i'm saying now is "WHAT THE HELL U GUYS WANT?" Actually i don't think we should even give a damn about it. Cuz guys are contradicting sometimes too. 

----------------------
Scenario
The guy saw this girl who is all pretty and doll up. He told the girl "Actually you will look nicer without make up. Just be natural" The girl thought its real so she decided to go out BAREFACE the next time they hang out.. Only to know that the guy was FREAKING SHOCKED HE ALMOST WANNA VOMIT & CANCEL THE OUTING. But obviously the guy didn't tell that straight infront of the girl. Seriously, do some of you guys do that too?
-----------------------------

If you like us to be all natural, we shouldn't shave our armpit hair. There won't be brazilian waxing so we are all hairy. And then we don't need to put on contact lens (which is the reason why our eyes look so dreamy and attractive sometimes). We don't even need deodorant! CAUSE YOU LIKE US TO BE NATURAL. NO?? 

----------------------------
Scenario
The girl did plastic surgery so that she can look pretty even without makeup. The guy said "I prefer you to be natural. Now you look fake." When the girl was natural, the guy said "U actually look nicer when  you are natural BUT WITH MAKE UP ON." wth this is so contradicting. 
-----------------------------

Just to define WHAT NATURAL MEANS 
"present in or produce by nature" 

Well, just stop saying how natural you want us to be. Thank you. And hope everyone have a nice Friday :)

Rings, Nails, My Bear


 I have got rings and nails ~~~ If you didn't see my updates on facebook/instagram/twitter, then i'm updating here again! lol. Sorry about flooding this but I'm in love with the rings that I've made recently. I used my dad's leftover raw materials (all the steels & etc) and make them into rings that I wanted to buy online but eventually decided to do it myself instead. 

The process of my first ring took me quite a while to finish! I spent almost an hour doing a simple ring. It's not as easy as you thought. I had to measure the size of my finger, start bending into shape, use the fire and bend something which will melt and then stick to attach the ends of the ring, then file it shiny and hammer it until the my ring is round. 

I love them! And I started exploring by bending into different shapes and it just so happen to be a ribbon-like ring. 

Although they don't look perfect but they are my first pieces of work :) 

 And I haven't put on make up for more than a month. I was resting my skin and doing daily skin care routine to improve the complexion of my skin. I'm currently using all Laneige products for my skincare routine now! They are kinda awesome. And its so much cheaper to buy in Korea. 
And falling in love with my one and only teddy bear. Accompanying me since 17. 

Guess which finger is that? :) 

The red that i'm using now is from Etude House/TheFaceShop I forgot. It looks really nice! And then i'm also loving the pink in the middle of the picture and the shiny glitter red on the left is kinda whatever... lol. But i guess it will look nice if i put a white base before applying that colour. 

So this is me cheesing 
And this is me signing off. 

It's already the midweek! Just hang in there abit and Friday will come shortly :)

Song by Yuna - Decorate. 

So I decorate my house with things you love
Just in case you show up...

Lazy Saturday


Pictures via pininterst 

I wanna visit New York soon


This song is wonderful 
~~~~~~ 

What a lazy Saturday. I lost track of the days too (thinking that today is Sunday) anyway. I'm blogging at 1.30 am now. Holiday is so fun! I literally stay at home almost everyday. Haven't step out of my house since one-two-three-four-five-countless days and I'm beginning to get use to this. I've been doing a bit of yoga at home, listening to music, online shopping, reading about fashion/photography. It's just so peaceful here at home. 

And i must say my friends are all getting a little annoyed with what i've been doing lately - which is staying at home all day long. They just wish I could hang out with them for a while. haha. Alright! Just gonna get my thoughts fix and i will be out and about soon. 

How did you spend your Saturday? I hope it was well spent! xx

Beautiful Love Movies To Watch

If you are a sentimental person like me then watch these beautiful love movies! I haven't watched some of them and I'm planning to watch them soon. I swear I almost cried when i see these videos on youtube. They are all so touching...so sad...so romantic...so gooddddddd......

Sometimes we just need these beautiful sad things to happen to learn precious lessons in our life.


Top 5 movies I've chosen:

- A Walk to Remember
-The Notebook
-Dear John
-The Vow
-P.S I Love You


1  A Walk to Remember 

-Trailer-

Directed by Adam Shankman. Written by Nicholas Sparks 


-song-

I've picked some quotes and lines that I love from this book: 

"Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it." 

"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and it not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes."

"Encouraged, I leaned closer and took a deep breath. When I exhaled, these were the words that flowed with my breath. 'Will you marry me?' "

"Her miracle was you."



2.  The Notebook 

Directed by Nick Cassavetes. Written by Nicholas Sparks 

-One of the best scenes- 

Quotes and lines that I picked from this book/movie: 

"I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. "

" You are, and always have been, my dream."

"You are the answer to every prayer I've offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper, and i don't know how i could have lived without you for as long as I have."

"Every great love starts with a great story." 

"In times of grief and sorrow i will hold you and rock you and take your grief and make it my own. When you cry and when you hurt I hurt. And together we will try to hold back the floods to tears and despair and make it through the potholed street of life." 

3.  Dear John

Directed by Lasse Hallstrom. Story by Nicholas Sparks.

-song Little House- 

-song The Moon- 

Quotes and lines I pick from this movie! 

"I finally understood what true love meant...love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be." 

"Love should bring joy, it should grant a person peace, but here and not, it was bringing only pain."

"Being in love, I find myself smiling for no reason at all."


4. The Vow

Directed by Michael Sucsy. Story by Stuart Sender. 

Full movie can be watched on youtube! (click here!)

-one of the best scenes i like- The Wedding Scene- 

Quotes and lines that i pick from this movie! 

"I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home." 

"I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. "

"When you truly care for someone, their mistakes never change your feelings because its the mind that gets angry but the heart still cares."


5. P.S I Love You

Directed by Richard LaGravenese. Story by Cecelia Ahern. 

It's an amazing book to read. I have not watched this movie yet because i don't want to destroy the romantic images created in my mind while reading the book. I had tears welling up my eyes when i was reading it i swear. 

The story goes where by Holly (the wife) and Gerry (the husband) are a married couple. Until Gerry died of brain tumor... and Holly was devastated. Surprisingly Gerry had arranged to deliver letters to his beloved wife - all ending with "P.S. I Love You."

-song-

Quotes and lines that I've picked from this book: 

"Shoot for the moon, even if you fail, you'll land among the stars." 

"Don't be afraid to fall in love again. Open your heart and follow where it leads you... and remember, shoot for the moon."

"What a luxury it was for people to hold their loved ones whenever they wanted."

"...God leads you to it and takes you through it."

"Sometimes there is only one thing left to say, P.S I Love You..." 


-----------------------The End------------------------


P.S Watch them if you haven't done so!

Revamped My Old Accessories


Hey beautiful people! So I've been staying at home since i came back from my Korea trip and it is kinda bored if i just surf the net the whole day... 

And so I decided to DIY DYE MY OLD ACCESSORIES

I have a lot of accessories which i don't use anymore & i threw them all away. Now i feel that its so wasted! 

Alright, i still kept some of the old accessories and here's two that i've revamped yesterday at home. 

1. The old white ribbon ring 

Initially i thought i wanted it all black but then i want the ring to look more fun so i add colors to it :) 


And tadaaaah~~! It looks very Art & Craft and i love it. I'm so gonna wear this out now! 


Matches the colour of the nails that i'm wearing too! 


And then i have this very old and rusty bracelet which i bought more than a year ago. 

Since Spring is over soon (unfortunately Sg doesn't have 4 seasons...), i'm gonna add colours to it as well! 

I can wear this with a plain dress and my accessories will POP. 

Okay, that's it for now. 

Bye guys! xx

Seoul, Korea ✈ ✈ ✈

When I was 18, i asked myself when would i have the chance to visit Seoul. I thought i probably would only be able to go when I turn 22? And so thank god, my wish is granted 2 years earlier! It took me a pretty while to save enough money for this trip. haha. 

Sat on my dream job airline (SQ) and off I fly to Korea ~~ (I think its every girl's dream to be an air stewardess.)

Stayed at Gangnam district at Ibis Seoul Hotel. They have very clean facilities & super convenient to go to the subway station/COEX Mall/take taxi/good food/cafes.. 


PICS
THE STREETS 


This is at Dongdaemun, a paradise for shopping for clothes. However, I realized that the clothes are not cheap in this area. You may wanna go somewhere else to buy your clothes. I also don't like that I have to bargain when i was shopping at Dongdaemun. Although I managed to get the clothes at much cheaper price... BUT!!! They still cost quite a lot for me. I rather spend that money to buy clothes from H&M / F21. The prices are around the same anyway. 

E.g. They sell one dress for SGD60. WTH? 
top for SGD30-40 
Bottom SGD 40-65 

Just a rough idea of how their prices are quoted there. Brr~~ Not worth it. 




Tom N Toms Coffee. 

Seoul has this brand almost everywhere.  




Spotted another Tom N Toms Coffee while on the cab. 

One thing i realize about drivers in seoul : Drivers love to rush

They literally can just change lane here & there, and if they are unhappy, they horn. hahaha. But its good for me cause i like fast drivers. 


Myeongdong 

My favorite shopping district when i was there. Cheap and very nice clothes. By cheap i mean that's almost 40% cheaper than dongdaemun. And the super awesome thing is that clothes are tagged "Made in Korea" instead of "Made in China" - which makes the stuff look more reasonable to buy! 

One spaghetti top - Made in Korea : SGD4 !!!! 

wahahaha i bought so many different colours of the same design. The quality is fabulous and the price is just sooooooo affordable. yay! And really, it says Made in Korea. 


And this is the place filled with Korean makeup brands such as Misha, TheFaceShop, Inisfree, Etude House, Too Cool For School, Tony Moly, The SAEM, natural republic and many many more. 

The top 3 brands that i've purchased madly from were Misha, Laneige and Inisfree. 

10 pcs of hydrating masks from Misha is 10,000 krw (SGD11.60) !!!! 

Singapore is selling 3 pcs for $10 please! LOL. 

I was so happy i think i bought tons of masks. Its sure enough to last till the end of this year. 



Kraze Burger 

Very popular fast food restaurant in Seoul as well. 


I love all the pink. I bought lots of nail polish from them. Because its 1 for 1! LOLOL. One nail polish from Etude House is only arnd sgd2. So i bought 2 nail polish for sgd2 only??? Ahhh i was so excited! 


Another good bargain. If you visit Myeongdong, check for this shop for Payless. Their shoes are very comfortable and selling at very affordable price. 

This place actually reminds me of BATA when i first saw it from the outside. I don't know why i went in but I didn't regret it cause i bought 2 very pretty and comfy shoes from there! It is not like BATA at all. Payless is so much more trendy & cool. 



Paris Baguette. Very famous in Seoul and has many outlets too. Their bread is awesome. Their icecream is amazing~~~ I took pictures of them in different flavors. lol. Check it out as you scroll down. 








Last night at Seoul... Love this rainy day. 


5.30am in the morning looking at an empty road. 














THE FOOD





Had take out food from a nearby food cafe at the hotel. Love the korean style of packing take outs. 




Paris Baguette Bread 



I love korean seafood pancake! 





After eating seoul's JjaJangMyeong, i concluded that the imitated Jja Jang Myeong at sg local food stall sucks. 



Love their beef soup as well! 





Kraze Burger



I wanted to try all their flavors. But only manage to eat chocolate, green tea and strawberry flavor.

Icecream from Paris Baguette rocks! 


Last but not least, beef bbq. 

THE SHOPPING


TheFaceShop and Etude House. 


Doota at Dongdaemun 






Payless




*random picture* 


The first day of my shopping trip. 


Bought this for my friend, KK. She will love it. haha. 


Laneige. Bought their skincare routine set, sunblock, eye cream and BB cream. Love them all! 

Seoul, thanks for giving me such a great time in your country. I will visit all the iconic places the next time i come here. *Seoul Tower* *Han River* 

Coming back to Singapore gives me a strange feeling. Oh well... Gonna miss all the crazy k-pop songs that were playing on the TV too. 

xx 

P/S: Make sure you leave your hotel at least 30 minutes earlier than expected when leaving Korea and back to your hometown. The Incheon Airport has crazy queues. Almost missed my flight back if i were to pause for 4 more minutes.
