Names that begin with A

Today, I am here to gossip about others. Coincidentally, all three of them have names starting with A. They are all very interesting people, but in very different ways. One wrenched my heart, the other made me bewildered and the last one made my toes laughed out loud. Ok, I cannot wait to share so I shall start now!! For those who have watched enough local comedies and sitcoms, you would have seen Abigail Chay before. In the past (actually even until recently), I have always been unable to determine her gender. Do you know she is also the daughter of the famous McDonalds Granny who appeared in many McDonalds TVC in the 90s? For those who don’t know how Abigail looks like, here is a few pictures to refresh your memory. I chanced upon a video about her life not too long ago and it really touched my heart. I never knew the woman whom everyone laughed at and teased actually had such a turbulent life, and spending many years of her life in …

t.at.too.s

Tattoos are addictive. I’ve been wanting to get another tattoo for the longest time. But I haven’t decided what I want yet. There are many designs I’ve been looking at, but I’m taking my own time because I know the answer will come to me at the right time. It’s always like that. Since I’m at the the topic of tattoos, I wanna share some of the gorgeous pictures I found. I hope you like them too. I really like moustaches, not like real ones but the Pringles one! And I think I’ve listed it into one of my favourite designs. I drew a little moustache on my finger and see what how much fun it can be! OMG I love A’s meow meow cats. ♥

Chiang Mai II

Before I begin, let me wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year! Hope the Dragon Year would be a HUAT HUAT year for everyone and may everyone be happy, sexy, glam and healthy! ♥ This Chinese New Year has been a rather quiet one for everyone in my family. We didn’t do any visiting this year because of Grandma’s recent demise, but we still had fun at our family chalet! 🙂 I visited A’s place though, and it was a lot of fun meeting her family. I hope A had fun at my family chalet and family dinner too. Heh! I also received some pretty clothes to wear for the new year! Special thanks to SugarThreads for the super adorable striped dress and LustMonday for the comfy and stylish looking chiffon shirt dress! Many many love! I shall continue with my travel to Chiang Mai! This is probably my favourite part of the entire Chiang Mai trip – visiting the Karen Tribe in Mae Hong Son and Elephant rides. But before I start on those, …

Chiang Mai my love

It’s time for another post for my favourite Dove chocolates! And when I was told to blog about something close to heart – something similar to the warm fluffy feeling melting a piece of chocolate in my mouth would give me, I thought I should dedicate this entry to my beloved Mom. My mother has always been an inspiration to me since young. She always struck me as a free-spirited, optimistic and daredevil woman. Although she is my mother, she has always been more of a friend instead. We could talk about almost anything and we are comfortable to show our innermost feelings before each other. Well, to me at least. Mommy was a really adventurous girl. She used to tell me how she just picked up her luggage and went off to Japan to live and work for half a year when she was about 21 or 22. And when she was in her late twenties, she did it again, that time to London. In many ways, she has taught me how to be …

My makeup mood

I’m suddenly in the mood to do an introduction on how my normal “slightly heavier” makeup is like. Random I know! But it’s been a while since I last did such girly and makeup-related stuff on my blog, so I thought, why not? :p I don’t use much makeup usually. Used to not be able to live without liquid foundation but I think I’m much better off without it. I don’t use 2-way cakes too because I don’t like the cakey and powdery look, and I think a good concealer will be able to do the job as well as foundations! ♥ Here are some of the products I will be using today: Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Navy, Steel and Woodrose. Estee Lauder Blush in Nude Rose, Rosewood, Pink Kiss and Bronze Goddess. Maybelline ‘The Falsies’ waterproof Mascara Marjolica Eyeliner in black Benefit Eyebrow Kit ZA concealer Chanel Lipstick in Vendome [25] Start off with a clean face with only moisturizer on. It helps make your skin more supple and acts as a good barrier …

Dove chocolates, my best friend

Move over, diamonds. Chocolates are now a girl’s best friend. And my best friend is definitely Dove’s DARK CHOCOLATES! Other than taking care of how you look on the outside, you should also start taking care of your body on the inside. For this entry, I wanna share more about Dove’s silky smooth Dark Chocolate bar. Dark chocolates contain lots of antioxidants, higher than that in red wine and green tea. It also has potassium, magnesium and other vitamins like B1, B2, D and E. Why should you make dark chocolates your best friend? Here are some reasons! [It’s my own little research and here are some information I gathered off the net] 1. Pregnancy Babies born to women who ate chocolates daily during their pregnancy were more active, happier and showed less fear of new situations. The chemicals in chocolate that produce a positive mood can be passed onto the foetus! 2. Coughing My Mom used to tell me that chocolates are ‘heaty’ & would probably make my cough become worse but little did …

Sinsin & Tingkang

It was a fine morning and we set off to do a little pre-wedding (or some call it engagement) photoshoot for Sindy and Tingkang. Wedding bells will be ringing in May this year! A and I didn’t sleep for the entire night before the shoot (I was blogging and she is hooked on SIMS 3), but I think we ran on some amazing adrenaline and reserve battery left in us to do the shoot. It was really fun exploring new places and taking pictures for the lovely couple. Tingkang also handmade the reflector we used for the shoot! And Lianie the stylist came prepared with pretty dresses for the bride-to-be! Here is a little present for my beautiful friend, Sinsin and Tingkang! ♥ The first location was near Dempsey area. The sun and occasional clouds made it perfect for the shoot! A and I lugged all the props and I’m glad they added more pretty colours to the shots! *beams* They looked really cheery and happy in the pictures and I think all the mosquito …

Happy New Year lovelies!

My New Year celebration was a blast with A, the girls and their partners! Earlier in the evening on the 31st December, I also attended my friend Levi’s wedding at Conrad Hotel. Wish him all the best and a blissful marriage! ♥ We left the banquet early so we won’t be caught in the NYE countdown crowd. Sindy and Lianie were feeling very “Sex and The City” and Sinsin decided to do a video of us. HAHAHAHAHA! I don’t know how to walk so happily like them though. You can view the clip here. Our NYE celebration was a simple one at A’s place. My darling A was so nice to let us create havoc at her place in her room. Heh! I brought my ring light to her place and set up a little camwhore corner so that I could take pictures with my girlfriends, RIGHT BEFORE Year 2011 ends! Everyone was there except Aiyo because it was she and Weifu’s anniversary day! Congratulations Aiyo and Weifu! ♥ Another wonderous year! But even though …
