Makeover


 HELLO HELLO.

Enjoying my last few days of holiday. 
Merdeka Day is coming, I keep thinking it's New Year's because they keep saying
"countdown countdown"

To be honest. I was living in a pig's sty for the past few months/years.
HAHAHHA. I don't know. It just got worse and worse. 

SO POOR THING YOU KNOW HARLOW.
I like to buy books, you see. But I never care about storing them.
Just stash them under my bed. BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE A BOOKCASE.

Below. is the before picture.

  
Not something I'm proud to put in public T.T
See, I ain't even kidding.
Dust bunnies everywhere T.T

Took the books out!


Got fed up, finally bought some furniture.
The picture looks like some random wood pieces
but trust me. It is a bookcase. HAHHAHA

IKEA, overestimates the **** out of us.
Give you pieces of wood. The famous flatpack. HAHA!
Everything is self-assembled, but they provide you
the parts and instructions neatly. :3


MUAHAHA. Took me bloody three hours, at least, to complete this.
A sense of self-accomplishment and also a hunchback at the end of the day.

Can ask the IKEA guys to do it,
but the flatpack was able to fit in Dad's pick-up truck.
Seven feet! Felt excited to get it home.
But not so excited when I opened it.
and had to screw here screw there. HAHHA!

It's an "interesting" experience^^ , like crash-course KEMAHIRAN HIDUP
all over again. Thank God I have Dorotha to help me.

This was day one of makeover, went to Mei Yen's house to sing karaoke
after I finish the bookcase. I only ever clean up once in a blue moon,
but I don't stop until I finish. Iffff you get me to start ^^



The most important part was organizing my books.
I want to re-read this book I have in my head, but I 
can't read it in real-life because god knows where the 
fucking book went :(

NOW I CAN! ^^

Magazines shown- Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, ViVi, Popteen, Cosmopolitan,
Elle, Marie Claire, Teen Vogue, Glamour. Each one has at least ten mags.

The thing about magazines is they have different regions.
And for Vogue. BLEURGH. Feel so soham looking at it.
Vogue Australia, Vogue US, Vogue British.
HAHAHA! So there can be two July 2011 issues, from diff regions.
Also have some extra copies, bought them because I forgot I have them at home :(
How can. Everything is better now.
Able to reread magazines easily,
reference books easily.
More productive for college okok!

I love Vogue British the most.
And then Harper's Bazaar Australia.
Heee :)

About 160 magazines there :3
Moved the remaining ones to guestroom
pity the guestroom :o



Middle shelf of the bookcase, decided to put my old gadgets.
Second phone from right, was my first phone.
Some Panasonic barbie phone I got when I was ten years old.
LOLLL. I remember thinking it was so cool to have one.
And I only used it to call baba back then. HAHAHHA! ma de

Game boy colour is my brother's, still works.
I remember when I wanted to play his pokemon game
and the only thing he asked for was for me not to overwrite his game.
Din know what that was back then, but just nodded yes yes yes and played. ^^
I think I accidentally delete his game once :/

Nintendo DS with Hello Kitty cover on the right, seldom play it anymore.
I do bring it to trips though, because there's a lot of waiting involved during travelling.
Wait for plane, wait to arrive at destination, APALIN ALSO WAIT =.=

Middle, first ever iPod. 
iPod Mini, but if you compare it with newer models now...
AIN'T THAT MINI YOH.

Fujifilm Instant camera which I haven't used in a while,
because the films are. fucking. expensive.

HIGH-MAINTENANCE.
BUT YESH. INSTANT FUN.

Another camera is a mild lomo cam.
Clover UWS dunno wad thing.
Good for landscape and places with lots of sunlight.

I WANNA BUY DIANA MINI
but I'm afraid I won't use it much after I got it.
Like the Fujifilm.

Cannot a cannot. Must buy the film.
I think for these types of cameras- film cameras,
It's good to take one photo, from many different occasions.
Otherwise. VERY WASTING BETTER USE DIGITAL.

But you can't beat the "real" feel of film.

Digicam is good for blogging thou ^^
 
  

Some sketching while skyping with the girls- Chi Cheng, Xuan and Sim Kuan.
Forgot to screenshot :(

Went to DPC in the afternoon, meet up with Dan CC KJ SYen.
 Just sat and catch up at La Casa. :)

 

Finally I can relax muahahah.
seriously felt like crying everytime I saw my room before the makeover. :(

It didn't bother me much last time, only recently.
Mind is clear but room is not, I don't mind.
But now. My mind is cluttered and my messy room
just adds salt to the wound :(

HAHAH! Sometimes it takes going to rock bottom
to spur your spirit to reach the skies.

OKAY LET ME DREAM ABIT.

 This is the kind of bedroom I love the most.
Victorian-style. Can also look like
it just came out from the set of Marie-Antoinette.


Okay, when I marry and move out. I want to have my dream bedroom.
I want plush floor-to-ceiling curtains
four-poster beds 


AND A WALK-IN CLOSET.

YOU GET ME?!?!??!?!

^^ oh yah.
Day two of room makeover was cleaning up leftover books
and setting up a low-drawer where I put my mirror.
Spot where I groom myself, put all my accessories and make up there ^^

College timetable is also out,
8am-5pm for most days.
Saturday, also have class.

T.T

AND THEN HAVE TO KEEP ASKING MONEY FOR
ART SUPPLIES AND TEXTBOOKS.

I DON'T LIKE LA MA DE. FEES ALREADY SO EXPENSIVE
HAVE TO BUY SO MUCH OF SHIT.

!!!!!!!!!!!

But this is the course I take, the only thing I can do.
BUY. AND THEN MAKE FULL USE OF IT.
BE HARDWORKING.


I DON'T WANT TO BE A WASTE OF SPACE
ONLY KNOW HOW TO 

TAKE TAKE TAKE TAKE TAKE

BUT NEVER KNOW HOW TO GIVE.

I WANT TO DO A LOT A LOT A LOT A LOT OF THINGS!


:))))))))))))))) BUAY! I SHALL DO THEM NAW! ^^

good luck peepo! :)

All about the money, money



Hello hello!

Today is Monday, but supposedly Tuesday since it's 3AM and I'm blogging.
Most of my friends are perhaps sound asleep, as their classes has started again.
I have an extra one week, and then hell for me. LOLOL.

Just glad to have some respite. Mei Yen's break is FOUR WEEKS. =.=
I JELLYYYY


Finally saw my precious baby :))

Mei Yen's been MIA for a little more than a week,
she went on eight-day trip to China. 
Visit her extend family.

I don't know what happened to mine.
=.=

Went to jog with Chi Cheng after that at DPC.
Drizzled, but not enough to make it an excuse. 
It was so negligible. 

Which is something because all my friends know
I hate getting wet in the rain. I mean whole body wet maybe,
but a drop here and there. Is ickyyyyy.
My pet peeve. I love umbrellas. Parasols.
Espo transparent ones.


Many times I have done this T.T

But I've been feeling so lethargic and pudgy.
cannot cannottttt. Lucky to have friends nag me to exercise.
I used to be the one doing the nagging.

And then college. Tired like a loser.
How can. 

In life, you do more and have more energy.
Do less and feel more tired. 


SO TRUE YOU KNOW YOU CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING 
SO LONG AS YOU KEEP BELIEVING AND PUTTING EFFORT.

I MEAN COME ON MANKIND MADE IT TO THE MOON
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. JUST TAKES TIME!!!!!!!!!

HAHHAHA pardon me 

Only did four rounds run and walk around the lake.
I DISCOVERED. It's easier to run when you're looking on the ground
instead of what's ahead of you. 

Umm. Because it's too boring and predictable?
You know where you're heading, you see the inclines and get tired.
I just look down and pretend something's chasing me.

And some helpful infos ^^



 Okay? Have to exercise, have to be productive.


This was on Saturday, dropped by to see Sim Kuan and Yen Shen.
They were studying at Coffee Bean DPC.
I was swimming with SY at da clubhouse.
Sim Kuan stress balls now for her SUPER SUPER BIG EXAM.  
At night, as usual din din at Curve.
Got my weekly dose of mags from Selvan
but realized I bought a magazine I already had at home =.=!
I AM NOT PAYING ENOUGH OF ATTENTION
My brain functions like when I'm driving.
It thinks it's travelling at great speed but no. 
I'm stationary. Brain gets frustrated.
Also I have a tendency to talk in chunks.
Only certain ppl can interpret. lolll

After dinner, called up Xuan.
She was with Jasmine and Chloe.
Followed them to their second round,
mom mom this ultra super long roti tisu.
Takes three plates to let it "sleep".
NICE AH. I HUNGRYZ THINKING ABOUT IT :'((


#today's camwhore insta

After I went home I couldn't sleep. 
I kept thinking about how to earn money in the future.
My career. Until six in the morning.

I mean... I can't give any excuse not to succeed.
Good home, good education.

My dad started out with nothing more than maybe 5k in his bank,
so what excuse can I give?

PSSHHH. Daddy invested in my education, my greatest nightmare is
having a salary of a regular salesperson.
But no offense to salespeople! I've been one.

I just don't want to be one forever.
No one wants to be at the bottom...

I don't want to be good, I don't want to be great-
I want to be the greatest.

I don't want just a fashion brand, 
I want an international fashion brand.
Scratch that, international lifestyle brand.

I hate guilt, I hate skimping.
I hate the guilt of spending someone else's money.
I hate skimping because I don't have money.

I HATE IT. I CAN'T WAIT TO WORK.

You know, when I'm "in like",
I'm so foolishly easy to satisfy- all I want
is to be the person I like.

But now romance is out of the equation,
and all I wonder is. How much am I worth?
What do I have that'll make me irreplaceable?
In a world where people can work so much harder because they're desperate-
in an intensely motivated sense, how do you pitch up?

When you're so fucking comfortable in your own home,
watching TV and enjoying air-conditioning
without having to pay for anything
and instead getting pocket money.

Where do you find the fucking motivation?

My dad, part of why he managed to work so hard was 
because there was no choice for him but to succeed.

If he failed, not only did he failed himself.
He failed to feed a family of four as well.

When you've slept on floors your whole childhood and ate flowers as lunch,
you'd never want that for your children.
You'd never want to be scoffed at by your in-laws again,
looked down upon because they never thought 
he could provide a good lifestyle to their daughter.

That was my dad's motivation.
Where's my fucking motivation? :(

HHAHAHAHA.
Ma de. I stress.

All I can think of is. To earn money, earn more and more until I earn more than my dad so I can repay him and he can retire in peace. I don't want to be a daughter who never stops asking for money. I don't. 

I used to want to earn 1 Million then I'd die happy. 
But no. 100 Million is more like it :/
Everything is going up, and up.

All I can think of is. Never having to limit myself when I want something. Never have to think- oh, I  don't have enough money and I don't know how to earn enough... I can't buy this.

I want to grab what I want, and be happy as I hand over my money
because I'm happy to part with it.
To earn what you get.

Money never used to be my priority. 
It is now, because I'm getting older and I can't be dependent.

Money would never betray you like a loved one would, 
but also it could never, ever love like a person could. 
Money is dead, humans are the ones who make it.

So in the end. People are my priority.  
Family and friends. 

I will never love a boyfriend as much as I love my dad.
Husband maybe, but at most same level as my dad.
Lol. Because daddy was here first.

Family are the special people 
you're born into
and they're with you through your whole life.

people may come and go, but family isn't one of them.
Miles apart or death, family is still.
family.

Friends, they are precious.
All those memories and laughter shared.
Friends are family you choose.
Never let them stray.

I get sad when I don't see them for more than three days.
HAHAHAHHA.

Sometimes I get mad, sometimes I talk bad
but at the end of the day 
I still love them a lot a lot as my friends.

And of course there's this period that maybe.
It's not so obvious but you know.
You can only concentrate on a friend's bad side.
Maybe I won't like what she does, but I still love her as a person.
And then after that period is gone.
I feel stupid for being so county-county with 
what you did wrong what you didn't do blabalbal.
Because I'm not perfect at all and I'm thankful that 
they put up with me ^^

And if you asked me to choose, throwing away all my branded stuff
or losing a friend... I would choose the former anytime.
Branded stuff can buy again, friends... equal to being priceless.

Mah de, I don't know why I type a lot of crap today.
HAHHAHA. Spill it all out. Got da momentum.




HAHHAHAHA LOLLLL.

This was on Sunday's. 

This is the blue bag effect.
Every girl's heartbeat will raise faster than
running a four-mile track
upon seeing the Tiffany blue.

Bought a bracelet and earring.
Err. Spent an hour at KLCC trying on and off.
I don't like buying something I'm not 100% happy with.

HAHHAHA. The salesperson was patient enough ^^ friendly yoh.
Bought it with my own money, from previous job savings and leftover HK money.

Heart taggy earrings! I think I had a picture of this on my post a few months back.
For expensive stuff I always think about it a lot like an auntie before buying.
I love gold, but it is so expensive. Like at least four times more expensive than the silver version.
HAIYO, THAT'S WHY I WANT 100MILLION.
I WILL WORK LIKE A DOG FOR IT 

HAHAHHA see how it ten years time


I like to stack it with gold accessories. 
Too used to having gold, warm skin tone oh

 I don't want to spend money on clothes already.
Save up and buy accessories. HO HUM.

Juicy's accessories not bad! Hehe. Less expensive.

I always say I wanna save money, but the reason I save money 
is to spend it, just in one shot and for one expensive thing.
But err. Need to. Control!


First handbag I got from Italy, when I was. Fifteen ah.
ISSIT. Or t


Okay I found the original picture.
Valentines Day, 2008. This was me holding up newly-bought bag 
at my hotel room, like it was the most precious thing on Earth.

Lolll easy to satisfy when you're younger.

This bag got stolen once this year.
The thief took my phone, camera, cash
and left my bag in the toilet.
Well, bloody unfortunate but at least I got my bag.
Sentimental value yoh!

If it's mean to be yours it's mean to be yours.


Picture of me when I was. Hmmmm. Six ^^
I love how printed photos always have dates.

Damn dulan right my face. lolol


And a very anal thing about Tiff & Co.
They have engravings everywhere.
Managed to zoom in this one.

HHAHAHA look at the T&Co thingy.
It's the behind of the earrings. The "post"
Err. Even the stopper has engravings.


My dreammm. The gold ones.
Elsa Peretti diamonds by the yard triple diamond gold bracelet.
Return to Tiffany gold key. blurbedjejkbek
Doesn't matter what I want, important thing is to save up
and find some odd jobs while I'm at it =.=

THANK GOD CHRISTMAS IS NEAR.
Well quite la. Few more days to September, damn fast!
And then CNY. ANGPAU AH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 AND THEN MARCH. BIRTHDAY AH!!!!!!!!

I love being a kid, still.

Well honestly the good thing about expensive branded goods is
they aspire you work hard and earn money.

People don't just buy the product, they're buying into the lifestyle that's
connected with having a Chanel handbag or Rolex watch.
They can raise their prices every year,
but still. People keep buying.

Sometimes I don't give a fuck with shopping
this constantly having one thing I want to buy

BUT NOW. I'M IN THAT PHASE.

The good thing is it drives me to think more about my career.
Bad thing is. Err. Spend a lot. =.=

I think when college starts I will forget. Eh wait no eh.
College start I will think about fashion, think about what to wear.
THINK ABOUT WHAT I WANT TO WEAR.

HOHO. 

I don't want to think already.

That's all today, thanks for tuning in ^^
BYE BYES OH! LOBE YOU GAIS!

Covet


Hello hello, tis post quite a lengthy one.



This was on Wednesday, I think?
Buddies, they go away for few days but it feels like a year.
HAHAH! Sim Kuan got back from Koh Samui.
Still so fair, =.=!

Had sushi lunch at 1U's Zanmai to satisfy her sushi cravings.


DPC with Xuan after that, was supposed to jog.
But iLazy. Typical me, all or nothing.

Lazy means walk like a fat pooh bear,
not lazy means run non-stop for you :3

Meet up with SY for a while, my long-lost zi mui T.T
HAHAHHA! At Coffee Bean, he stalked a couple one or two tables away.
Apparently they were arguing and the boyfriend wanted to break up.
And then he just left, leaving the girl alone.

WTF. 

Chi Cheng was also there, with her cousins. 
The poodle so cuteeeeeee .
I think I need a dog to handle my anger issues. HAHAH
Having a dog is calming, lowers your blood pressure when you pet it.
Soothing eh. I don't lie. At least that's what I felt when I cuddled Chuckie.
CALM!

But, I'll see how when my real course commence, see how tiring I'll be. 

x.x
 

The famous eight girls of Form Five also dropped by.
HAAGAGGA. They were at 1U before that too.
Corinne was MIA, Jasmine came later.

Sat at Fitou for a while. One or two hours?
Chit chat. HEHE. Chloe damn cute.
The way she swears.
Is not even rude.

HOW CAN!? I'm the opposite,
can make sushi names sound like swear words.


Random Batman.

HAHAHA! Cute anoh!?

Stumbled upon it on Tumblr.
Ding was dancing this shit the other day at BeerFact.
Teaching others to dance too heeeee

And more random things:





Found this book of runway compilations.
I like sketching from them, and I mean sketching.
Like 15 mins sketch, black & white.

I find it... HARD. To draw the same thing for few hours.
I don't like to colourrrr :x

Camwhore shots...


Current FB profile picha, this minty green Zara top 
that I realised was too big when I got home and tried it
and it kept sliding off my shoulder T.T

Love the colour though, goes well with my skin tone :D

Other greens can look too gaudy on me, especially those colour-blocking tones.
Darker skin=lighter colours. Sim Kuan and Siet Yen's skin=fair 
so contrastful and sharp colours look well on em


Emohai, fade style. lololol

The black thing on the edge, it's the camera strap.
Left it there. Mysterious effect. Bokeh sometimes too if lucky =D



 Souvenir from Sim Kuan, thank you very much hehe ^^
She'll remind people to buy souvenirs but she'll never forget to buy you souvenirs.
So I never bothered to remind at all :P

Leopard-print top, but that colour. Is her colour. Mah de. 
Black and white. Can tell it's from Sim Kuan already.
HAGAGAGA.

  


Sometimes I get bored and take out my makeup
open my closets and just dress up.
That was what happened like 3AM yesterday. Lmao.
It's one thing that girls still play,
no matter how old they get.

And recent wants. The internet is evil.






The blue box experience, just four pieces that really caught my eye ho hum.
Essentials! Earring, ring, necklace, bracelet.

Top two from Return To Tiffany collection
bottom two from Elsa Peretti's diamonds by the yard.

The sterling silver pieces are actually quite affordable, 
but the gold pieces are like bloody hell I need to work for em.

And also Malaysia is just a bad place to buy designer stuffs.
For example this T&Co piece is priced at around USD220,
so convert here will be only be around RM700 right? Not bad?

WRONG AH. In Malaysia it'll go for at least RM900++

And then, difference between silver and gold? 
Silver necklace, USD125
Gold? Haha... USD 2500

Lmao. Damn big the difference!


Arm candy trend :D

Random it bags that caught my eye



What girl wouldn't want to have this behind their doors.
  
Celine Nano Shopper

Their mini is still huge :3


Nano is perfecto!

 

Balenciaga. Not sure which one this is, hehe.
Only know their most popular one is the "City"



Chanel, and they are crazy.
Right now it's almost reaching USD 4k for the small flap if I'm not wrong?
It used to be around USD2k few years back, but two times every year they would raise their price.

Ridiculous, I know T.T
Rumor has it they want their flap bags to reach the 7k mark so they keep raising.
Quality still the same, puiiii! But people still flock to buy it :3
Chanel wants to their flap bag to be as exclusive as the Birkin, maybe?
But with Birkin it's also not just about the price, but availability.
The legendary waiting list.



HAHHAHAHA 

Mini Cooper is my dream car but when I start working
then I will dare to dream about Lamborghini.

This one's Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 if I'm not wrong :3
 

Gucci bag, no cash.
Honestly applies to me.

Normal wallet but with some money.
Then u take the money to buy branded wallet.

Ta-dah!

Branded wallet with no money.

LOLOL sad life T.T

I can't wait to earn money for myself. HOHUM.
Feel so bad for getting the car, allowance tighter too because of the car.
But I like Mini T.T

Old post- this previous post I made, all about handbags.
Can see how materialistic obsessed. HAHAHAH

But then life goes on and you live, with or without the latest IT bag.
People out there are struggling to survive,
we only struggle to live. ADUHAI BETUL!

Lol. Honestly. I am scared of working.
Mah de. Can't be afraid of everything.

We go ahead full force!

That's all peepo!

Bye :*
