The side of me you don’t get to see..

So I was just going through the pics on Sam’s iphone the other day and I thought many of them were hilarious!!! It shows a side of me that you guys don’t get to see often, if ever at all.

Some are not suitable for sharing with the public online (me looking worse than death and more that your imagination can’t handle xD) but here are some funny PG-safe ones!

We used to doodle on the iphone a lot… when those drawing apps were still popular!!

Drew this while trying to nudge him awake in the morning ^.^

He drew an adorable snowman because we were all excited to spend our first Christmas together in Orlando, Florida :)

And yeah, some of these pics are pretty dated back!

Although our real Christmas didn’t end up looking anything like this, it was still amazing. I go back to December all the time :’)

…December 2009 that is.

HAHAHA Sebastian the crab!!!

I think this was when we had just visited Disney World and we were in the whole Disney mood..

My idea of the perfect beach holiday :)

Needs a whale / dolphin (preferably an orca) splashing in the background.

LOL, you can probably guess who wrote what!

I was drawing that cute little preschooler daisy and he had to go and draw that stupid complicated looking rose to outshine my daisy ~.~

AHAHAHAH wtf??????!!!!!

Don’t even ask.

Awww yeh my infamous stick figures :]


Next up…. photos of me sleeping -_-

Sam has DOZENS of these in his phone!!! He just loves taking pics of me sleeping because apparently I “look like an angel”.

Personally I think I look like a pig.

These are the better looking ones, most of them are of me sprawled ungraciously on the bed looking like a lazing hippopotamus.

LOL.

Me waking up in the middle of the night going, “hmmmm? are you taking a picture of me? x)”

As you can see I like to sleep in one particular position – with my back on the bed, I will cover myself completely (up to the neck) with a thick fluffy blanket and at the bottom I usually have 1 leg sticking out of the covers!!

2 legs covered = too hot.

2 legs uncovered = too cold.


1 leg sticking out? …. Just nice!!!

Until a ghost or a demon creature reaches out and grabs your leg in the middle of the night while you are sleeping and drags you to hell of course. :(

I always imagine that happening. Damn you horror films!!!

The only half decent photo of me napping.. Always take photos of a girl from top-down, not bottom-up!!

Random ass picture of me slurping on udon and grinning like a kid, so proud of myself for doing something stupid :P

And I just thought I’d post a picture of myself in everyday clothes, in glasses and without an inch of make up.

You know… bring myself down back to earth and reality. Can’t live in make up + photoshop fantasy land my whole life!!

Despite what you see on my blog, I actually look like this 99% of the time because in all honesty, most of the time I can’t be fucked putting on contacts and make up.

When I do though, I usually try to take heaps of pics!!!

….In my defense, that was before I got my eyebrow embroidery done so my brows don’t look as bare and non-existent now :P

Picture of our matching Scrumps rag dolls (from Lilo & Stitch) that I bought from school!!!

Sam used to drench the “female scrumps” in my Chanel perfume so that it smelt like me and he’d proceed to take it back to Melbourne and huggle it to sleep every night.

Pevert HEHEHE.

I must have 5 or 6 soft toys bought from that pushcart outside the canteen selling plushies in my school.

What can I say??? I LOVE my soft toys!!! Especially Disney related ones ♥ ♥ ♥


HHAHAHAHAAH!!!!!

Totally random pic of Sam when he bleached his hair last year!!!! Fuunnneeehhh. Makes me wanna try some crazy hair colours now! Speaking of hair, I cut my hair short. Like shorter than I’ve ever had it in my whole life! Will post pics soon.

Surprisingly enough, I don’t miss my long hair…. yet. Only a matter of time before I start crying out, “O HAIR, WHERE ART THOU?! Y U NO LONG?!”

Me sucking on an orange popsicle.

Because I’m cool like that.


EGADS!!!!!!!!!!!

TERRIBLE photo of me that Meanie Sammy took while we were on a ferry from Indonesia to Singapore with my mouth hanging wide open!!!!! I fell asleep because the ride was 1 hour and I was very pale because I was extremely seasick :(

I look like I’m dying LOL.

A mean photo but super funny, I’ll have to admit that!!! I seriously dunno why I enjoy going on social suicide sprees like this by posting such pictures up but I figured if it made people laugh, then it’s good entertainment, right?

I like lying down on Sam’s lap horizontally in the backseat of my mum’s car, cuz Volkswagen Beetles are so bloody small wtfbbq @%#&*@!%@^&^

So these are some snaps he took when he wouldn’t stop annoying me and let me go to sleep on a ride back home ;_;

Tryna act cute so maybe he’ll let me sleep…

Verryyy unhappy indeed!!!!

*super grumpy when I don’t get like 10 hours of sleep minimum a day*

And here we have random screenshots I took from his phone!!!!

Re-reading our texts always make me smile :)

HAHAHAH omg I know I am so racially ignorant but she didn’t take offence at all at least (good friendS)… we both just stared at each other before cracking up. FMyMalayFriend’sL

x) Just a cute text of my bf telling me how much he loves me, and me feeling the need to tell the world how smart I think I am in class.

And you didn’t need to know that!!!

LOLOLOL.

BEST. effing. text. conversation. evarrrr!!! Wuv you honeybee ♥

Btw the “ice cream” walk is this lame catwalk thing I did in a video featuring “ice cream”… Kind a long story, but since it has my ex-bf in it I don’t feel like posting it on my blog. Pretty sure you could find it on Google if you looked hard enough though.

Us just being us. :P

*continued*

EHEHEH.

Abrupt end to random post!!!!
Did it make you smile or laugh???

Of course it did! ;)

HURROW I PERMED MY HAIR!!!!

Dear earthlings, guess who decided to go crazy and turn her whole head of hair into a giant frizzball??

May I just add… a fashionable frizzball at that!!!

Remember how I had that epiphany a few blog posts ago and realized everything had to change from that moment on? Well the changes I’ve made so far aren’t as quick and drastic as I thought, but trust me, CHANGE IS ON THE WAY! A new year, a new year me.

Yes I sound stupid but pep talking yourself works ok wtf otherwise I’ll forever stick to boring ol’ me.

Anyway, I don’t know if you know this but somewhere deep within the unwritten book

Guide To All Women’s Weird Habits lies rule #52647:

When something big has happened / is about to happen, a woman changes her hairstyle…. drastically.

Now, I kid you not!!!!

Every time I go through a break up, I change entirely and one of the first things I change is my hairstyle. It’s not a conscious decision of course, it’s just sort of me getting up in the morning deciding I needed to see something different when I look into the mirror and a few hours later, Poof! Voila.

New girl.

Well sort of. Same girl with new hair.

Now, this time I’m not breaking up with my boyfriend but I broke up with my old self!!! My old, lazy complacent self who never got anything done and sat on her fat ass all day. I am really nervous about getting so many things done at the same time but I’m sure everything will turn out fine….. I hope.

I’m really skeptical about this video I’m barely halfway through finishing :(

(yes, it’s got to do with the whole taylor swift thing)

Anyhoo, these are the last few recent pics of me (taken yesterday) with really really straight hair!!!

My hair’s naturally DEAD straight, and extremely fine + lightweight so it always gets tangled easily and there is NEVER any volume or poofiness!

Crazy hard to style and you won’t believe how frustrated I get with it. (If you noticed, I am constantly dissatisfied with my hair.. fickle)

I came to the conclusion that perming it would be the best choice, so once I made up my mind, I made an appointment with Milly’s (they have a new salon!!) and went over just yesterday to get a makeover!

People have been commenting that narcissistic photos on my blog have decreased in number greatly (“Are you not vain anymore?? Where are your pictures?” – question on my Formspring) and Wendy has also been telling me that I’m too “artsy” with my DSLR photos and people find that hard to appreciate..

It was the first time I felt “pressured” to camwhore!!!

I’ll admit that once I got my DSLR I stopped taking photos of myself because I found everything else around so much more interesting than my own face, which I looked at everyday :3

I even told Wendy, “But my face is so boring!!!” and then I realized how terrible that sounded. I have to ♥ myself, my face is not boring IT’S BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!11111

LIKE THE MONA LISA!

Ok, was that too much?

….It’s all about perception, people.

Oh btw I posed extra retardedly in these pics coz Sam complains that I look the same in every photo. Same head tilt, same smile.. he said it needed to be different, so I gave him spastic for a change.

My terribly messy room.

There was barely enough space here for 1 girl, now there’s TWO people living in this tiny hole!!!

This “OPEN YOUR EYES BIG BIG so you look innocent and doe-eyed” stare is a desperate attempt to look more Japanese / Korean-ish because they seem to be all the rage right now.

(actually their style has always been popular – I’m just coming up with excuses for my camwhoring ways because I haven’t been so narcissistic in awhile and I feel a little uncomfortable aahahaha *nervous laugh*)

This is me getting my nails done at Milly’s!!! I did my hair there too. Poor baby Sam waited like 6 hours for me to do both hair and nails T_T

But it’s all to look pretty for you bb boy!!

I haven’t had long flashy bling nails in FOREVER and I almost regretted getting them done because my skin / nails reacted to the UV light that was used to harden the gel mixture on my nails REAAALLLYYY badly.

Like so bad it felt as if my fingers were literally on fire, I almost cried!!!

I’ve done gel extensions at Milly’s several times before and they NEVER hurt before, I don’t know what’s wrong with my fingers / skin / body now!! I’ve also developed eczema around my thighs and underarms… what’s happening to me??

My body is giving up on me at 18 years old!!

Just to clarify, not everyone feels pain from UV light / gel extensions and people feel different degrees of discomfort / have different reactions. But if you have really sensitive skin like mine, I’d suggest you opt for acrylic extensions instead!

Nevertheless, the results are sooo pretty and I can’t stop staring at them now!!! Makes me feel glamorous even when I’m in my pajamas hehe.

I keep running my fingers over the smooth surface of my perfect nails… I think I’m obsessed.

Normal manicures definitely don’t match up to gel extensions, they’re just SO sleek and shiny looking!

Even though I’m not the sort of girl who HAS to go for manicures all the time, (they’re like a novelty idea to me – I do it cuz I can whenever I can be effed) but I’m so glad to have Milly’s as my sponsor!!

I’ve done my nails with her many times before and I ♥ em every time.

Besides nails, hair extensions and lashes, Milly has expanded into FULL SALON SERVICES NOW!!!

Yup, a spanking new salon located at “Little Red Dot” at Bugis Village level 2!

That’s where I sat for 6 hours yesterday..


To get my hair permed yo!!!!!!!

Lol my hair gear looks like my grandmother’s / mother’s

So excited to get my hair permed, the last time I did this was at least 4 years + ago!!!!!

Goodbye to super straight hair.

It’s funny coz perming makes your hair quite dry and I spent so much effort, time and money trying to get it healthy again after my first perm years ago.. Now that it’s super shiny and healthy, I just wasted all my efforts by perming it AGAIN!

Why am I so fickle minded srsly? Damn annoying!!

.

So like, I was just sitting here with gazillions of colorful hair curlers rolled up onto my head, feeling very restless and awkward because I’d been sitting there for many hours getting different treatments done when suddenly this blog reader walked past Milly’s salon and stopped to say hi to me!!!

I couldn’t even stand up or walk over to say hi because I was halfway through perming my hair and got a lot of products on my head. I swear, people always catch me in the worst situations.

While getting my foot massaged, after a midnight movie when I’m yawning and looking like crap, halfway through my perm..

I’ve even had strangers say hi to me in the bathroom.. LOL /wtf/

.
.
.
.

And here’s the result!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


SHIBERTY WITH POOFY HAIR!!!!

Yayyy volume, volume, volume! This is with NO product in it too.

Hehehehehe it’s so cute and retro I love it!!! Almost poodle-like. LOL I crack myself up. It looks super curly here but the curls have kinda died down a little now so it’s not as bombastic looking.

How does it look like from the front????

I didn’t manage to take permed hair pics with my DSLR yet, but I have some on the iphone and I know you’re dying to see them!!! (or in truth, I’m dying to show them!)

Lol I couldn’t resist.

Check out my delicious iphone cover!!! Mum bought it for me from Hong Kong, so sweet!

Ok so people YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU’RE GONNA SEE NEXT.

If you’ve been following my blog for a LONG time, you’ll remember my ex-boyfriend, J. (from 2 years ago)

I was REALLY shocked when I first saw my hairstylist working at Milly’s because

HE LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE MY EX WTF.

Blurry side pic view wtf but I’m sure many of you “recognize” him!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOK ALIKE RIGHT?


COME ON.

WTF that’s him doing my hair for me wtf imagine my horror when Sam was beside me whilst I do my hair and all I kept thinking was,

“Why is this James lookalike washing my hair for me???……. A-W-K-W-A-R-D.”

This faux James even has the same layered long hairstyle, the same type of metal chain he’d always wear and the same height + build + polo tee!!!!!!! He always wore a polo tee. So freaky la -_-

On closer inspection you can see the obvious differences though. But the similarities definitely overthrow the differences!!!!

For those of you who only started reading my blog when I got with Sam, don’t ask me for a pic of my ex ok I don’t wanna see it or post it but his pictures are all over my archives and not that hard to find.

I don’t think I’ve seen a more similar doppelganger DDDDDDDDDD:

……..Ok,

/freak out end./

Now time for pics of my HAIR for real.


I can haz poofyness!!!!!!!!!!!!

♥ It’s so retro looking I feel like I just stepped out of Grease!

Hopelessly devoted to youuuuuuuuuuuuuu……

Lol @ the topless Sam behind me :P

I know it’s not as “sophisticated”-looking as my other hairstyles but this turned out to be super refreshing!!!!!!! It’s not what I am used to and that’s the whole point.

It may be a bit frizzy but whaddya want from a perm?? I’m just happy to have some body and volume and style to my hair. Perm effects are different from tonging, I knew that from the start and had expected something like this actually. I had to go for really small curls because my hair’s die-hard straight and big curls would fade in a DAY.

Even with these tiny curls I’m scared they won’t last the supposed initial time frame of 3-4 months because my hair’s just that stubborn :(

But I hope they last at LEAST a month and a half because I like it!!! And I don’t care if you don’t ok I realize it may look a bit china girl ish (they all have permed hair) but it depends on how the individual carries the style and I’m thinking GREASE, not china!

Permed already, no going back anyway, it will fade soon enough.. so if you tell me anything bad I’m not gonna listen!!!!!!!!

Otherwise I’m just cover my ears like this going “Lalalalalalalalala”

Peace out.

LOL whut

Changed into my baby pink teddy bear cotton PJs ^.^

All these pics are from my iPhone so no photoshop.. kinda stupid PS-ing something so pixelated anyways

I can’t wait to see what new looks I can carry off with this new hairstyle!!! I’m gonna make it WORK!

(but first it has to stay on my head. I haven’t washed it yet, and I don’t dare to. why do I get the feeling it will just fade -_______-)

End of squirrel hair post with a happy boob-galore pic of yours truly.

Tell me watchu think about my new hair!!!!!!!! ^.^

Unless you think it’s bad then shove your fist in your mouth and go away hmph.

Things I’ve been up to recently

Usually I try not to go without updates for more than 4 days, but Sam took an impromptu flight down to Singapore and we’ve been pretty busy sorting things out recently…

He was acting like a major mofo and we almost ended things but I guess you don’t just throw away a relationship so easily, so I gritted my teeth and held on to whatever’s left to salvage.



MOFO!

Pray to god I’ll have the strength to get through this shitty time!!!!!!

I HATE LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS!!

Not really in the mood to discuss what went wrong and stuff now, I’ll do a post when I feel like it, so don’t ask me questions k?

.

Us in the cab… On our way to City Plaza!!!

Mum brought me there the other day for shopping and we had lunch at this quiet corner which surprisingly served really yummmmyyy food at super affordable prices.

Thought Sam would like to try some local food instead of westernized restaurants for a change so I brought him there!

Did anyone actually notice he dyed his hair?

They don’t match his eyebrows at all lol! Oh and speaking of eyebrows, my Browhaus brows have faded soo much that it’s barely noticeable now!!!

As you can see it looks much shittier what it was when I first posted a picture of it. Had to draw on eyebrow pencil because it’d be too thin otherwise. I have a free touch up appointment to go for soon, and hopefully after then it’d be good again!!!

I don’t know why mine faded so much when my mum’s one is fine….

It’s also kinda annoying how it’s still BLACK after fading when the salesperson convinced me it’d be dark brown!!! :< Keep you guys updated after I go for my touch up. Maybe it’s just a problem with my skin since other people who have done the same treatment seem to have no such problems…

Penang Assam Laksa = First dish that we ordered at the quiet eatery in a really obscure corner!!

There’s a whole lot of stuff inside this dish, tuna (I think), lettuce, cucumbers, bean sprouts, and a heap of asian spices.

Great kick but only for people who can really take spicy food ♥ One of the reasons why I love being asian.

I don’t know the name of the shop or exactly where it’s located, just that it’s at City Plaza, possibly on the top floor and at the very end in some weird corner lol.. (Sorry I have no sense of direction!)

I did take a picture of the inside though!!! If it looks like this then you’re at the right place. If you like authentic, cheap and yummy asian food you should totally give this place a shot..

Sam loved every dish :)

Proof that his stomach approves hehe ♥

Nasi Lemak!!! Fragrant coconut rice with sweet chilli pasta and fried chicken coupled with a sunny side up. What’s not to like??

He liked this so much he ordered TWO plates. Blogging bout this is making me so hungryyyyyyy

Super oily Char Kway Teow Fav that’s worth the heart attack in years to come :P

Haven’t had better CKT in ages.


Me eating …

If you’re wondering why I’m blogging about mediocre and mundane stuff like this,

it’s because despite how busy I’ve been recently, there seems to be very little photo opportunities for me to record the day’s activities by and I hate blogging without pictures unless it’s a Food-For-Thought entry!

It seems like the only time we ever stop whatever we’re doing to take pictures is when we’re having food, and waiting for food to come, so I guess that’s why this whole entry revolves around the food we eat…

I also can’t really do wordy and lengthy blog posts when Sam’s around because I need to be completely alone and have hours and hours to think about what I’m going to write properly before I can even produce anything so I guess you’ll have to make do with random bo liao pictures that don’t really mean much for now :P

Mango Salad… Doesn’t look promising but it’s actually quite yummeh!!!!

EVERYTHING I’ve tried from that stall is good wtf.

We usually order at least 3 soft drink cans during each meal. We’re hardcore soda addicts.

I wonder if soda addiction is a real medical condition because if I go without my sugar high for too long, I feel DEPRESSED.

Like no kidding.. I’d have no appetite for anything and feel really lethargic all the time until I pop a can of coke in my mouth and I’m all bubbly again.

Shopped around City Plaza before we cabbed over to Far East Plaza for… what else? More shopping and food!

Too bad the shops don’t let you take pictures inside :(

So many pretty bling shoes I’d love to take pics of!!!!!!

We stopped for a drink and mango pudding at Graffiti Cafe.. It’s a pretty cool concept where they allow any customer to take out a pen and just start doodling on their walls or tables!

Their only “decoration” for their restuarant is legit vandalizing acts from bored enough people with an itchy hand!

Nom nom nom nom

I think I have a much better nom nom nom nom face

Who Takes A More Artistic Shot of an Orangina Bottle Competition:

My shot

Sam’s shot


Boredom at its peak

I started reading the random messages and doodlings drawn on our table and they’re all so lame that it’s funny!!!

“Which smiley is the most retarded??” …

Merry Christ!!! LOL #fail

Merry X’mas is fine but Merry Christ just sounds so wrong…


Then it suddenly hit me :
Why don’t WE leave our own graffiti mark in this cafe too?

Not a stupid message or some lame smiley face, something people would actually enjoy looking at while having their meal.

We ran off to buy some permanent markers and came back to brainstorm together:

What would make a good table drawing?

Started off with the idea of drawing a branchy, silhouetty tree because I love plain black ink on a white canvas.

We picked the cleanest whitest graffiti-free table around because we wanted to draw on the whole table!

Autumnish tree drawing done, with S ♥ J carvings and a squirrel hole in it too cute!!

Wanted to do a couple sitting beside a scenic tree on some bench at some park, inspired by the movie 500 days of Summer (which is a really shit movie btw!!! can’t understand why people like it)

Basically Sam would draw a rough sketch of the images I have in my head as I relay them to him… then I’ll go over his sketches with some finishing touches and I think our combined effort is amazing!!

♥ ♥ ♥

Used to draw like this so much back in high school.. especially during math class when I’d start to daydream and doodle on my textbook!


Our end product!!!!!

“Every moment with you… is a picture perfect memory.”

It’s so pretty and gives me such a perfect nostalgic feeling :)

Wish I could take the table home!!!!!!

If you visit Graffiti Cafe at Far East Plaza’s basement, you’d see our drawing on one of the first few tables. I hope some idiot hasn’t gone and drawn over it because it’s too pretty to be ruined!

The next time Sam comes to Singapore, we’ll go back there to see if its still around…. all the wiping from the waiters might take off the ink sooner than we think though.

Did more shopping and walked over to TCC for dinner before singing Karaoke at Party World into wee hours of morning

Hahahah I love how psychedelic this picture looks!!

We get a little bit too excited when we sing karaoke. Always attempting Mariah Carey songs then breaking our throats while doing so.

Some pics from yesterday!!!

Went out for dinner with Zoe, Wendy and Jayme and I wore this cute polkadot dress that Sam bought me for the first time :)

Man I hate compact cameras… why the quality so lao sai one!!!


Retro is the way to go (Y)

Dinner at Waraku ^.^

Then shopping at F21 afterwards.. good fun!!!

Zoe sent me these following pics!

Wendy wasn’t in a picture taking mood so none with her..

Unnecessary additional picture of me eating.. more noodles… *is noodles and pasta fan*

Ending off this super random entry with more drawings me and Sam did awhile ago!

Thought I’d share them since they’re so cute and happy looking :)

Rainbow headlights at the back of your car while driving on Smile Street FTW

If only happiness came in a pill… but I guess candy comes close enough :)

Lollipop land!!!!

More blog posts when Sam’s gone. He’s leaving in a few days T_T

Then I’ll probably fly to Perth and then Melbourne!!!!!!! HAPPPEEENESSS.

I can’t wait for Christmas…. for the holiday mood to come and everyone’s all joyful and planning overseas trips!!! Hopefully this year I’m spending Christmas with my family in Bali.

Brow resurrection!!! Hallelujah

HELLO PEOPLE!!!!!

I have exciting news to share today! ^___________^

Few days ago, I went to get my eyebrows done at Browhaus and the treatment is called Brow Resurrection.

It’s kind of like eyebrow embroidery / tattooing, but less painful and of course more professional… it won’t look as fake / drawn on and cheena-ish and won’t leave weird reddish / greenish marks when the eyebrows fade off. (have you seen those aunties and their faded tattooed eyebrows??)

Example of a not so well done brow job… @_@
Pic credit

I’ve been meaning to get my brows done for the longest time…

You might’ve noticed that I’ve complained bout my brows time and time again.

People always tell me they look kinda weird / fake, and the thing is, I KNOW but I can’t do much about it!!! Frankly speaking I do a great job with drawing my brows already because THIS is what it looks like completely natural:


NOW YOU KNOW MY PAIN!!!!!

I mean who the hell is born with such terrible brows?

They might look overplucked / shaved / whatever, but I assure you that’s not the problem. The problem with my natural brows is that they’re very scarce and droopy-shaped and simply plain ugly.

I’m satisfied with my looks but I really can’t stand my eyebrows because when it comes to things like these it’s not a question of VANITY anymore, it’s more of the fact that I feel like a freak of nature.

They’re so bare that they don’t even look like they exist when I don’t have make up on and sometimes this gets really weird remarks from other people… they even raise their own eyebrows at me as if to say, “What happened to yours?”

FML!!!

Here’s a few pictures of really bad eyebrows to highlight my point:


HAHAHAHAAAA oh my godddddddddddddd…. so epic.

Looks like I took a permanent whiteboard marker and started drawing on my face. In my defense, this was taken for a Halloween party during 2008 ok!!!!!

It looks so shitty because my brows were all over the place… if you have a good set of brows naturally, drawing them is very easy because you’re simply following the natural shape and filling the color in but when you got brows like mine… Wtf you meant to do?


Think of it this way.

You’re given a colouring book with outlines that you just have to sketch over, simple enough yea? So when you’re done with your artwork it looks neat and everything

But my version is just a blank piece of fucked up crumpled paper with absolutely no outlines to follow whatsoever so obviously my artwork is not gonna look like Picasso’s!!!!

#justsaying!


Sometimes they’d be reaaalllyyy thin looking…

Something about thin brows and excessive lashes screams trashy!!!!

And yes I also did have a fake eyelash problem. I fixed that now… well sort of.

I’m not proud of these looks but then again I WAS 16 years old and trying to be trendy so give me a break. I bet you looked shitty when you were 16 too!

Recently my eyebrow drawing skills have gotten better I think… in the past it used to be stupidly dark or strangely out of shape or too thin / thick, but nowadays it’s got a more standard consistency and it pretty much looks like this:

Still looks like sharpie brows, meh, I know but at least they’re better than the pics above!!!!

My mum has ALWAYS told me my brows were ugly (well, thanks mom) and I’d told her about the Browhaus treatment months back when I was first considering embroidery but wanted to go for a better option.

I checked out the price and I was like… WOAH.


1 thousand plus SGD $$$ to get my eyebrows done?? Are you kidding me!!!!!

With a thousand I could do so many things!! I could go on a shopping spree and buy shitloads of stuff, or fly myself to some faraway exotic country and have a holiday, or even save some poor man’s life by giving him an extra thousand to live on…

I didn’t wanna blow that kind of money on my eyebrows butttttt my mum, being the crazy woman that she is (haha jokes mum I ♥ you!) signed up for it on the spot for a package for 2, and told me she’d sponsor this treatment for her precious daughter!!

I was sooo happy (and relieved) but at the same time I was putting off my appointment for months, always calling to book but cancel it on the day itself because I’d been dreading the pain… It’s kind of like tattooing your eyebrow in.

Same concept right? You get some permanent dye, some sharp needle thing and start poking away at the skin… ouch.

Well few days ago I finally plucked up my courage and told myself to stop being a wuss and here’s pictures to show you guys how it went!!!!!!

Weee all ready set for new eyebrows!!! My hair’s so poofy and red!!!!! Love!

This pic’s just to show off my cute new summer dress and hair. I know my right eye in the pic looks weird.. ignore it. Tried to save it by photoshopping but still failed -_-

So after some cheap shopping in City Plaza (cheap for me coz I bought a sunhat for 10 bucks but my mum bought a gown that’s imported from Paris and mothertooting expensive wtf) we drove over to Paragon’s Browhaus….

They made me wait around for like 20 mins before I started complaining then they attended to me. Not exactly the best service…

hello I’m paying 1k+ for your mad overpriced treatment are you seriously gonna make me fucking wait!!

.

After complaining and demanding for attention, a china lady then started drawing different brow shapes with an eyebrow pencil that she thought would suit me and asked me for my opinions…

She was quite pushy, and whenever I told her what I wanted, she kind of argued (in a non-rude way) and told me that her way of drawing brows is better because of so & so…

Finally we compromised and settled inbetween for something both me and her liked coz she managed to convince me that her opinion is trustworthy in the end. Damn salespeople!! If you do go, make sure you’re very sure of the shape you want otherwise you’re gonna have to live with it for 2 years and there’s no way to remove it!

When you finally decide on what eyebrow shape and color you want, it’s time to put on some numbing cream before the procedure starts!

And here I look like a corpse…. (Y)

Left the cold numbing cream on for about 20 mins and then she started poking away at my skin!!!!

It felt VERY weird because I can FEEL and hear her scraping my skin with that weird needle thing of hers, and it made a creepy noise (imagine what thick needle scraping hardened skin sounds like.. the cream made my eyebrow skin stiffer)

But it wasn’t very painful at all….

I have very low pain tolerance (cried from getting my eyebrows plucked LOL), and if I say it’s not painful then it really isn’t!!! You can definitely feel the blade cutting into your skin but it’s like an ants bite at most. There was NO blood at all and very little swelling when the whole thing was done.

It was over in about 30 mins, didn’t take any pics coz I didn’t wanna camwhore and accidentally cause her to screw up my brows lol


The REAL pain s
tarts when the numbing cream wears off (usually about 5 mins before she finishes tattooing on you) and you can officially feel the stabbing pains from the tiny movements made with her super sharp blade that she’s cutting your skin with!!! Stung like a bitch.

Like a million bee stings concentrated over a small area. Made me cringe and whine quite a bit T_T

You get the most MASSIVE headache ever, both me and my mum did, because your eyebrows are very close to your head so that much pain and trauma is gonna make you feel a little light (or heavy) headed…

But the pain and money was all worth it because


♥ ♥ ♥ I LOVE MY NEW EYEBROWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


TA-DAH!!!!!!!! ♥


Omg I love them soooooooooo much.
Even without make up I feel awesome and confident!!! GOODBYE SPARSE HIDEOUS EYEBROWS.

I know they look super dark now, like black almost, but they say it’s going to fade after 2-3 weeks and become a LOT lighter, so if they don’t make it super dark now it’s going to be close to invisible in a couple of months.

My mum did hers a few months ago and it was dark when she first came home but now it’s heaps natural and pretty so I have nothing to worry about!!! Can’t wait for it to become lighter and brownish because I look a little fierce with such harsh brows.

When you compare it with THIS, it’s like a miracle!

It feels so good to have nice eyebrows anytime, anywhere… don’t ever have to draw em again!! For the next 2 years at least lol. I can swim, shower, not have make up on and still have eyebrows that look like they’re perfectly groomed…

Most of all I can look NORMAL.

Wait, better than normal, because I absolutely freaking adore my eyebrows!!!!!!!!!!

I mean COME ON…. don’t you just ♥ the shape?? I shall call them supermodel eyebrows from now on. LOL.

Makes my eyes look more awake and slightly bigger too! It even looks realistic because of the drawn on individual hair strands!!! MAD!

Really excited to see what it looks like in a month’s time… I get a free touch up in 1-3 months, just in case I don’t like the shape / colour / intensity I get to change it FOC, yay!!!

For those of you who are gonna say “Meh they don’t look that great / I have natural brows just like that” well go away I don’t like you.

I’ve never noticed how underrated eyebrows are…. like they are so important in framing your face and my old brows were seriously FUGLY I don’t know how I lived with them for so long??

These treatments are so worthwhile and awesome plus they are great confidence boosters, I recommend anyone who has the spare cash and less than satisfactory eyebrows to go do it!!! :)

Ok this is not exactly related to my eyebrows but someone left a comment on my Formspring saying “you’re so fat and ugly and you have auntie hair and make up. go look like an 18 year old pls”

Why should I look like just any other 18 year old? I love embracing my own individuality!!!!!

And if looking different means being unattractive to you then I can’t help it if people like you are so shallow. I’m sure your definition of being pretty is being really skinny and having rebonded ah lian hair and being as fair as possible.

What’s new?

Stronger brows means I should put on less eyeshadow.. don’t want the look to be too overpowering.


I ♥ it, it’s so 1960′s
and retro especially with my poofy hair!

Totally glad for the brow make over… it’s given me new found confidence that I never knew I needed.

I’m going for teeth whitening next! Also quite costly but it’ll be worth it. I’ve nice straight teeth but they’re just a lil too yellow for my liking which makes me self conscious about my smile so I don’t show my teeth in photos like, ever. Don’t wanna gross people out.

KK this may seem a bit excessive to some people but don’t worry I’d never go for plastic surgery!!!!


Okie dokie, toodily-doo!

Gonna rush out some advertorial now… jeez, am I never rushing out an advertorial? The deadlines are all so tight!!

Hope you guys had a nice weekend. Mine was pretty good considering I FINISHED ECONOMICS PAPER and I think I did relatively well for it… for my own standards at least.


SO PROUD OF MYSELF!!!
Hell yeah!!! Another hurdle I conquered.

I seriously didn’t think I was going to pass. I realized that econs is a lot easier than I thought.. once I got over my fear for numbers and formulas. Great thanks to Victor who came over to my place at 9pm, very short notice, the night before my exam just to help me pass!!!!

Love!

Birthday pictures spam!!!

I am terribly apologetic for the lack of updates on my blog recently!!!

I’m having my FINAL exam in 2 days, which I’m reaaaaallllllyyyyyy freaking out over because I suck at math so much… it’s like I stop breathing once I look at numbers.

To make things worse, I have 2 advertorials on very tight deadlines that need to be urgently submitted… One TODAY, (FML) and one on the day of my exam itself (DOUBLE FML)

I don’t have time for a lengthy wordy post today so I’m just gonna picture spam you guys!!!!

Here are the remaining pictures from my birthday celebration… Most of the time was spent doing stuff like eating and hanging out and I forgot my camera on many instances!!

Like I stayed at Stamford Swissotel with my daddy and had amazing indian dinner at Raffles Hotel and had another even more amazing buffet dinner with mum the next night… all no pics. Rather annoyed with myself. How come always like this?!?

Nonetheless here’s a barrage of happy photos, enjoy!!!

Cousins brought me out for a movie and korean birthday meal treat… Om nom nomz!! Thanks cuzzies!!

(btw why do I look like I have some skin disease in this pic?? I swear I didn’t PS my skin wtf stupid lousy digital camera.. a lot of pics in this post were taken with my compact cam so bear with me!!)

Me and my sea of balloons!!! My entire room smelled like rubber o.O

These balloons are crazily durable… you can roll over on them on the bed and they won’t even pop LOL throughout 4 days only 1 out of hundreds popped, and that 1 was poked with a sharp surface

We popped all of em after 4 days because after awhile it got stupid trying to move around in a room filled with balloons -_-

Trying to find my iphone was like the world’s greatest treasure hunt..

Took a blurry accidental close up of the balloons and it turned out like this!!! SO NICE!!

Looks like digital art but it’s really just a bunch of ballons blurred out. The colours and the way they all blend together = ♥


O_O

Thank you for everything you did for my birthday babe ♥

I enjoyed it soooo much!!! Bestest b’day so far :)

He’s convinced that he’s going to spend 70 years with me..

Birthday flowers!!! Pretty ^____^

Baby Scrumps that he attached to the bouquet… ♥

Lilo & Stitch!! There’s actually a personal story behind this little stuffed toy.. If you’ve watched the movie, you’d know what it represents :)

Morning after swim with Sam and brother!

Sam the Sea Lion

LOL idk why I’m like strangling him

…But he likes it.

Looking at these happy summery photos make me sooooooo excited cuz me and Sam are planning a trip to Queensland to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef (oh my GOD), then we’re heading to the Gold Coast afterwards!!!

Can you say AUSTRALIAN SUMMER HOLIDAY?!!!!

I need to buy nice swimsuits asap!! Preferably something that will hide my thunder thighs LOL. Anyone know of any nice places to buy quality swim wear (In Singapore)? Like Sea Folly, etc? Let me know!!

I’ve started stocking up on my summer wear already.. Bought 2 sundresses from iRoo yesterday. I ♥ that place (@ Marina Bay Sands Shoppes) it’s my new favourite store!!

Finally, a holiday that’s NOT during winter.. Dying for some sun, sea and sand!!

Can’t wait to take photos underwater, of all the colorful fishes and I REALLY hope I see turtles / stingrays / dolphins and perhaps even some WHALES!!!

Oh pleeeaaaaasseeee plz plz plz plz! *crosses fingers*

And this is why I love you :’)

Lmao a candid pic of Sam surfacing…. this photo just made my day!!!

Did you know??

Sam was originally my brother’s World of Warcraft friend… then they played Left 4 Dead together, and one day I used my brother’s L4D account and I started randomly chatting to Sam..

That’s how we got to know each other!

HAHAHAHA WTF my brother is SO going to kill me for putting this photo up!!!

Don’t worry la how will anybody know you are Jeremy Loh?!?!

…….Oops.

End of barrage of happy pics!!!

I actually have more photos yet to be posted, but I’m trying to find the memory card which I’d captured them in!!

I’m dying to post a photo of my KILLER WHALE CAKEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Yes yes yes Sam baked me a freaking killer whale wtf I ♥ it so much.

I’m off to do work and freak out over my exam now.

If only I could do a trade off with god… if you make me better at math, I’ll settle for smaller boobs!!

Ok that didn’t quite make any sense

..But seriously, I don’t mind having smaller boobs for more talent at math… it seems like a fair request. Right??

RIGHT?!

P.S -
After seeing Wendy tweet about it, I decided to join this online contest called Cam Queen of the year and even though I have no such luck with contests like these, I decided to join anyway, coz it’s so easy and fun, plus you get to win 5k cash if you’re the grand prize winner!! Woot!!

Basically all you have to do is upload a pic of yourself “before makeover” and “after makeoveR”..

If you wanna vote for me, click here.

This is the first and last time I’m ever mentioning this contest because I just wanted to let you guys know.. like an FYI thing.

I’m not gonna try and rally votes because I’m aiming for the grand prize (judges choice) instead of the most popular / most “Facebook Liked” one because why settle for 1k when you can have 5k? MUAHAHAH!

Actually it’s just for fun la.


I used this pic as my before


And this pic as after!!

Huge ass pics for you to do some “spot the difference”!

Yeah… so now you know the difference of me with and without make up.

xoxo,
Jess
