Beauty and a beat

 Hey hey I look a little like I'm in a cave noh? Hehe 

Called up Gwenllian and asked her if she wanted to go Midvalley,
I wanted to go there because they had Kamdar and Art Friend ho hum.
She said on on, so there we go~

Falling in love with purple nowadays :*
Espo lilac and violet shade, mmm.

And honestly, I do hair and make up...
only when I know I will take pictures.
Otherwise I will be pretty lazy, concentrate on outfit onih
HAHA. I love taking pictures :3 


Believe and fight?

Look who I found at Topshop


Was entering Topshop's fitting room and out of nowhere I heard my name called.
Hah, sho hardworking! 

Had job offer on Blackberry's Midvalley event, but aiks.
Halloween and college, no time therefore no mood *w*

The joy of getting paid is unbeatable, though.

Also saw Wei Xi, she was with her relatives.

Hoh, seems like we bump into people wherever we go, small world indeed.

Must be meticulous, never let anyone catch you looking unflattering. 
Right right.

Also googled about the magic of contouring & highlighting (make up)

Ho hum, no wonder Kim looks so luminous all the time~
Looks horrible when you doing it, but immensely gorgeous after you've blended it away.
Haven't try that far, only some highlighting here and there.
Because the amount of pigments involved... NAY, scary.

With flattering make up, hair, and outfit. Anyone can look stunning. :3
People who put the effort to look gorgeous excite me. And my eyes.
People who don't? Ahem....

^ tutorial on how to contour & highlight ^^ 
So funneh how the model looks before blending
the light and the dark shades. Err. The model kept laughing at herself as well
More like a friend than professional ?

OH yeah, went to Kamdar and apparently they are out of Muslin.
Next month they restock, they say. ~.~ SLOW!

I don't wanna get muslin from my lecturer anymore mannn.
Outside is around RM15 for 5meters and his is RM75 for the same length.. =.="
A bit better quality, harder a lil'. But honestly. 
I'm a beginner, I'll take the bloody fifteen bucks one!

Well Artfriend I spent a loooong time in there.
Honestly I can spend forever in stationery shops and make up counters.
Because I keep thinking how to mix and match, and there are so many bloody options.

Well you can always buy their pre-packed set, but this 72 colour one costs....


^speedpainting with copic markers. 
Love watching endless tutorials on Youtube MUAHHA

Expensive, but they were totally awesome, and I am utterly in love. 
Now I can replace watercolour with copic markers as primary medium :3
For me their big deal was ultimately their brush nib. 
It's like watercolour brush but more consistent and the colour is ready-made. HOHO.
I was born for markers. YUMMY.

Only bought five, about RM75. Plus twenty bucks for a brush because it was sable hair. 
Pluck out from pony ah? Anyways, popular brands to look out for is
Daler & Rowney or Maruman for papers, Reeves for paint, Derwent for colour pencils.

There are like normal 24 colour pencil sets that costs RM300, 
but indeed their quality is different from RM30 one. 
Teacher has one, they can go on forever without sharpening. ~,~
Couple years old but still looks long way to be used up~

Having the right tools make a big difference, indeed.
And then learning the right technique makes your art come alive.
I suppose my mistake was never taking art too seriously because 
I only expect it to come naturally, as a hobby, as an amateur.
Too... lazy to go professional.

BUT HAIYUR. I have to be good at something.
And why not it be something I like doing :3

Well other stuffs I really love doing is eating and hanging out with friends
but you can't earn money from it. Umm. On the other hand, you have to spend money
to accommodate those pleasures! 

Well maybe if I was those TV food haunts host or some party ambassador.
But for the moment not realistic jobs eheh.

Some samples with the measly five colours I had. LOL.

2B pencil, with my favourite blue pencil. Heck. I don't know the brand, only that it is blue ~.~

Artline I don't know zero point wad :3

Caricatures because I saw em draw this way on my college textbooks.

I like to draw eyes, but anyhow after I finish them eyes I get lazy to complete the whole face.
So I leave a lot of emo eyes that way.

I don't think my drawing is good, but for me it is something that I enjoy :3
The only assignment that I can complete like it's not homework.

Hmm if I wanted I could focus all on drawing and be a fashion illustrator,
but then I wanna open a shop aiyoh so cutie and I wan the cha-ching also aiyoh so nice.

Craving Gong Cha eventho I had it just today! 
Passionfruit tea with basil seeds and herbal pudding. YUMMY. 


Well for next year I want a diff hairstyle. Wavy? Curls?
And a lighter shade :3

Xuan wants purple. Sim Kuan's not so sure yet. Dip-dye?
Looking back our pictures, Xuan and Chi Cheng are the ones who change their look
all the time. Like... chameleons.

Xuan is the most serious one, 
bangs no bangs side bangs blonde brunette wavy straight bun braid pins she likes everything.
Only thing I hadn't seen her in a while is of course short hair :3

Chi Cheng is more like she changes different hairstyles time to time.
The mushroom. The cocker spaniel. The china doll. Heh. 
Have special names for em all.

For me it's more like I do change, but after I do I stay the same for a while.
Like a phase, a mood, a look. That comes and stays for a while.

Another thing that I wanna do is also learn dancing! 
Girl's hip hop, new jazz hip hop, tecktonik.
Since I like to shake my ass so miach.

Oh yeh. Guys who know how to dance is also a huge turn on, just because.

Umm. Also want a dog. Poodle? Shih tzu? 
I need something to cuddle and pour my love over !@##E#E

Okay okay, that's all for today. 
Three AM in the morning and it's not helping my sorethroat :3

TATA lovelies! :*

Rainbow waterfall!

Hi hi peepo :*

So pleased tomorrow is holiday! Hari Raya Haji :3

 Went to DPC to meet up with my girls earlier tonight!

Was supposed to go out in the afternoon, Midvalley.
But plan didn't fall through yoh, Gwenllian wasn't feeling well~
Also had some last-minute work at college, as always. HMPH.

So I spent my afternoon napping, Jennie said just dinner at DPC.
LOL. Put my phone on mute and Jennie knocking on my door woke me up.
HAHHAHAHAHA! My house is like their house :3
 Saw my phone and had seven missed calls. LOL.

Had a bit of fever so I've been taking afternoon naps
that are like four to six hour long. HMM.

I think my body has this way of falling sick when stress,
because I know I heal myself by not going to school ~.~
MAKE SENSE?! :3 But it's like... relax for one day,
then after that a lot to catch up yoh.

Zoom zoom Jennie drove me to DPC. HEHE
Xuan came a lil late, our timekeeping queen <3 p="p">
Everyone has been feeling a lil under the weather lately,
hot sun and then thundering clouds.

Chi Cheng dropped by a while, she was with Weng Mun and Che Ying them :3
HEHE. She'll always find a way to meet us up :*
 Leaving to Malacca tomorrow, I think!
Jennie is off to Bali.
Siet Yen off to Alor Setar.

HO HUM. Everyone away from the weekend :/
A more lively halloween NEXT YEAR MAYBE?!

Gwenllian's infamous transparent umbrella was the star of the night.
HAHHA! I have a similar one- Xuan and I bought it when it was raining outside Pavi!

I spent like an hour editing the pics. FUN EH. 
Because... it was raining.




Oh yeh, saw a lot of familiar peepo at DPC, as always.
Don't know if they saw us camwhoring the shit out of the rain :3
Saw Phin Chin with his family, Hui Shan and Jia Huan them, 
Form Five guys- Nicholas, Kah Sing.

Lol. Banyak orang eh.

With bou bou, so near yet so far oh~
Timing and college obstacles hmm :3

Still great as posing partner heh

Wandering soul? 
 As always, three of us.

Similar moment, in a diff time :*

Went to chatime and for the first time Xuan and I got warm drinks instead.
Hmm, I like hot drinks when I'm sick. The only exception :3
Jennie rushed home to pack her bags~

Daddy told me maybe going Singapore for the weekend, I was like HAH?
By plane? He said yes. Ticket? Oh haven't book.
HAHA talk only! :3

I WAN EH. Shopping.

Dad's birthday also coming, brother asked if I wanted to share money
to buy pressie. I said oh okay la, and my budget was RM50.
Lol what my brother had in mind was ten times my budget :(

LV WALLET. HHAHA. Initially I was like WAH.
But okay la after that hmm aiyo Dad spend like fuck on us
and he never likes to buy anything for himself.


Well if there's anyone who deserves more it's my papa!


Also googled some different eyeliner styles!

NIFTY?! It's good to experiment and shock people sometimes :3
who cares if you failed, at least you tried!

But ahem. Don't blatantly accept anything ridiculous :3

They both look kind of egyptian ish :3

I used to like eyeshadow more than eyeliner, but I like eyeliner more now.
Espo the wing one. Fav part of eyeshadow is the glitter. HEHE.

I like glitter everything. Nail polish. Lotion. Lip gloss. HOHO.
Shine babeh, SHINE.

Err. Been posting less on college. LAZY AH.
Maybe next year :3 College atmosphere is so strict and serious,
unlike outings!

But yeh. Drawing has gotten easier, colouring skin colour too.
Wet on wet technique. Should get those copic markers but the basic set...
costs... RM360. *kneels on floor*

But, they are worth it :3 Espo when you're learning something
that requires quite a lot of drawing and colouring.

This is pattern making:

As a rule of thumb, I prefer fashion design over pattern-drafting

It is so much on accuracy and lines and curves that honestly 
my left brain wants to surrender, so bad T.T

The first one is a bodice pattern and the second a shirtwaist, btw! 
Mmm. Sewing is okay, but I like the creative ones. I don't like ones
which I have to follow exactly  bla bla. So stoic and impersonal eh.
But wtf. Have to learn.

T.T So much different from making clothes for my dolls.

OKAY OKAY. Will do some more wet on wet shit and post it up soon.


Sunday, 21 October 2012

We'll be coming, back.

Hello hello!

No matter what, I'll always stay true to at least one update a week. Hehe.
Because blogging doesn't feel like a chore, more like a hobby :)

 Sushi Bonanza week, and I've been dragging friends to eat Sushi King with me all the time.
Applied the card for twenty bucks, might as well get the most out of it! #kiasu 

 Cute right the card ^^
But they look so lively, I feel sad. Each bite I take,
it feels like I am killing them, one by one. :x

 With Mei Yen at the back lol. I wanted to act emo alone :(
New pose, looking down while taking pics. 
Cos I wanna see how my eyeliner wings look like hehe :3

Okay this one can see better.
I was camwhoring and Mei Yen threw my rilakkuma at me and asked me to pose with it. 
You know la I'm on whatever you throw at me.

Well, if it involves silly work, not hard work.
I might grow old, but the kid in me? I won't let her grow up so fast! :x

With Family on last Sunday, was having Caesar Salad with Salmon.
I think ^^ from Michelangelo where they don't serve ice water 
and their bottled water causes eight bucks
 with is more than enough to get a glass of fruit juice. LOL
Haih, KL oh KL.

But the salmon strips were delicious though.
I wished they had unagi strips, too.
It's nice to sit along the restaurants in Pavi's outdoor cafe strip.
They call it Connection which I think is a silly name. :B
Anyways, it is good for people-watching there.
 The way people dress at Bukit Bintang area is much more interesting
than say, Kepong or Sunway Pyramid. 

Random shit I piled on for that day.

After school on who cares what day, sneaking a picture at Tesco while waiting for 
the ginormous queue at Sushi King. First time sharing my table with strangers. 
All in the name of two bucks sushi! It was also their closing time, and I took away 
a few plates for next morning. Always spend a lot on food for college recently... heart pain.

Food is like little pleasures when in college. And with that kind of college? 
Boy- I'd go crazy if I didn't know how to indulge..

 I suppose Mei Yen is improving in taking pictures bit by bit
 since I always make her take pics..Lol heheee

 With the Gwenllian on Friday afternoon straight away coming back from college.
Drove to her house because I was lazy to go back home and go out again
and also because I know gwenllian takes a long time to get ready!

 Clothes borrowed from Gwenllian.
Bebe top and Bangsar boutique skirt :3

Ate at Cafe Takahashi on Tokyo Street at Pavi. Went to Topshop and Cotton On.
Cotton On had some crazy sales going on, tops going for five bucks.
But they're those thin kinds middle-aged Americans 
love wearing when holidaying in tropical countries...

They had some nice dresses for RM30 thou! 
Justttt need a lil luck to find it in your size!

Onto Topshop make up recently.

I LUVVV sparkly nail polish. 90% of nail polishes I own, sparkles. HEE *w*
Erm. I find matte ones a bit too formal/neutral.
But I love pastel shades ! :3

Bought their lipstick too, a light barbie pink sort of shade that
I've been looking for. Mags in vivi and popteen always show their girls using em!

Hmm. This one gives a pretty sweet effect. 
But I want one more from MAC! A more matte version perhaps :3


Inside Gwenllian's car. Look like spaceship anoh? ^^

Hmm. I've always wanted to try renting a hotel for one night just to party with friends.
It would be like penang, but concentrated on one night and you wouldn't have to drive so far!
The hotel above is Shangri-La, the most basic room costs RM435. Rates vary, of course :3

But, say the budget is RM50 and twenty people make it, you'll have RM1k.
That's actually not bad already.
Use half that for hotel
then the leftover for liquor and food.
....I know Vincent and Shao Yang seem to never run out of bottles to give away. ^^

It's year-end period already, I want to party so bad.
Get away from the stress and shit from college,
can't tell you how sick I am of teachers throwing tantrums
and assignments piling up like you can never defeat them.
That's how I put myself in this college situation, and it's not going to work.
 That's why yoh. January comes, boom. Just hoping for a better change! :3

Also. Artistic types are very much prone to escapist behaviour,
which means they use forms of alcohol and drugs to get away from reality.
Artistic people are basically very sensitive and emotional to the world around them
which means they perceive emotions in a magnified way. Sigh.
Those legends, they go on to suicide by taking drugs etc.
Michael Jackson. Alexander McQueen.

But. I am glad to say I've never taken drugs before and I don't think I ever should.
What if it becomes accessible and I become acquainted with a feeling? 
It always starts little by little, until it snowballs into a fucking mountain!!!@#$%^

Alcohol is at most a weekly thing and I don't drink more than three glasses- that's my rule.
Anymore than that I'll get extreme headache and puke.
I am sometimes thankful I get too sick and get drunk easy,
because God knows how much I can drink if my body were to handle it.

Saturday was going to Beerfact, my initial place ho hum. Saw quite a few regulars, as always!
Saw Ding and King Jiat, they are most free on Saturdays.
Sundays, lj goes to work, and Ding goes back to MMU.
Hanshen and his gang were also there, also saw his brother.

What else. Babi sial, I always get burnt by cigarette heads in clubs. MY GOD.
Put your fucking cigarettes away you dickheads.
Generally, they do say sorry- but one of them actually pretended to hide his cigarette once
 and I stared at him until he said sorry. I think he did, because I was standing beside a rather tall guy and he thought I was going to ask him to beat him up. LOL. Nola where got so bad.

Other times, there are sweaty dudes who fling their arms like an octopus who doesn't know anything about rhythm... and I also had my drinks spilled onto my top once, thank God
my whole top wasn't really soaked.

I think music can be kind of. A sort of thing which absorbs you into wanting to get high,
which isn't really healthy. I suppose I should use something else.
Like food. Chocolate produces endorphins, yoh! Them feel-good hormones.

I wanna go Genting on Halloween :(

I'm sick of Valencia alreadyyyy.
But... even if I went Genting on Saturday, I can still go Valencia on Wednesday
because that's the original date righttt. Valencia is more convenient for everyone :/

Taylors is also having some event.
Everyone seems a bit tied up with college nowadays thou to party hard.
Ho hum. College makes me busy, too. But I don't want to be.

Was talking to Sim Kuan about all this events we should plan.
Halloween, Christmas, New Year's Eve.

One thing I know is my gang doesn't mind spending money on entertainment. LOL.
 I still want to stay as a youth. TOA is like... working for two demanding bosses. 
That would be fine, but except firstly I'm not getting any money but vice versa.,
and I'm not working. I'm an eighteen year old student for goodness sake.
I don't want to be treated like a slaving intern, GEE.

Chi Cheng is away for work this weekend! Have to see her next week :3 Others, seen them all recently. HAHAH. Like catching episodes onih. Episodes of Gwenllian, Jennie, Mei Yen. 
The guys, less. Daniel Ding XJ KJ yes. Vincent Weng Hock Ping Kuang Jin Fye Shao Yang, less. Those Taylor kia (except for Jin Fye). Jun Wen Li Chen Guat Tyng also less. Yih Wern, yes! ^^

Hmm. Asked my brother if his girlfriend was closer to college friends or high school friends,
he said OF COURSE high school friends.
I hope it holds true for us :(
I know those ex form-fives who're four years older etc still going quite strong.

Hmm. How bout a decade later ah? I wannnn.
 But not bad la we live quite near to each other.
Everyone is like less than ten minutes away, come to think of it.
Most. Hehe.
Those who aren't, well they always fly with their car and appear like magic. KI CHAK!

That's all tonight! May hope be with you always.

xx :*!

Standing in the lights till it's over, 
Out of our minds.
Someone had to draw a line.

I don't care if I know you,
Out of our minds,
Gotta leave it all behind,
Someday we'll be coming back.
