Weekend without YOU.

The bf is coming home tonight but at a godly hour at 1-2plus in the morning, sg time! I didn’t manage to send him off for his bkk trip with his group of friends and neither am I going to pick him up from the airport tonight, or technically speaking, tomorrow morning. But one thing for sure is that we will be meeting tomorrow after work. Lucky him, as he doesn’t have to work tomorrow as he took leave to rest for the day. I bet he didn’t have sufficient rest over at bkk either.

Surprisingly, I braved through the weekend without bf and had some time to myself and friends. 🙂

Dined with sis and her friends (whom I know too) at Ministry of Food at Marina Square, had Ramen and proceeded to have some sinful ice creams at Cold Stone Creamery at Citylink mall. But sorry, no pics 😦

***

Met up with the bestie on Saturday for shopping!

And here are my loots from Bugis Street :

Personally, I don’t fancy expensive clothes and shoes. I prefer getting cheap ones, although quality may be compromised, but it still gives me the kick of getting good deals. But I know the costs aren’t that high too anyway, if they can sell at the price. I prefer splurging on branded bags 🙂

We wanted to head to Around de World for dinner but ended up at Manhanttan Fish Market at Bugis +, all because it was pouring 😦

But I’m sure we would have the chance to try it out in the near future! 🙂

Bestie 🙂

Me! 😀

And before we parted, we camwhored a little.

Apologies for the bad quality and awkward smiles (on me) because we were rushing off to catch the coming buses… LOL. Stressful u know!

To bestie : Thank you for being my bestie for the 13th year and counting! I MUST SAY THAT WE ARE REALLY OLD!

But nevertheless, thank you for staying the same and remaining true. I am glad that we have actually bonded closer than before. I’m also glad that we get along well with each other’s bf and double date for us is no problem at all. I can’t wait to be your maid-of-honour at your wedding! 🙂 ❤

***

And for Sunday, it was a stay-home one for me but was nevertheless tiring to the max because I spring cleaned my room! Like finally, I know!

Mom was like, “Wah, cleaning your room only after 25yrs!”  -.-

GASP.

I was never a fan of getting things organised, cleaned and packed in my room/desk because I believe that things will get messy eventually, which I have proved my own belief to be true. LOL. It’s like how I’ve never believed that there is a compelling need to make your bed since you would be using it again at night, and in fact everyday?

Okay, don’t judge me.

So I cleared my stuffs, packed and organised them, threw those unwanted stuffs… and of course, credit goes to my maid who helped too in the process with the additional help of mopping and vacuuming…

Had to clear tonnes of clothes too so as to make new space for my bursting new collection. I’ve been so addicted to online shopping and I still am! Oh gosh, seriously have to control my expenditure. 😦

And what’s worse is that, I’m still not done clearing my unwanted old clothes! I’ve already gathered 2 big bags (those black garbage bags) waiting to donate to charity – most likely The Salvation Army, and I’m sure there will still be tonnes left to give away! 😦

By the way, look what I’ve found!

NO RULES SHIRTS! ZOMG. HAHAHA!

Anyway, I know The Salvation Army only picks up furniture or bulky items but I’m hoping that these huge big bags of clothes would be considered as ‘bulky’ too. I can’t possibly drive them to the nearest outlet to drop them off, since I doubt there would be sufficient space in the car and boot? I think 2 big bags are enough to take up the whole lot of space of the car boot already.

And plus, I’m too lazy/busy to bring them down… My dad might not like to idea of this hassle too 😦

Will contact them and see how!

Crossing fingers 🙂

Hoped your weekend was good too ❤

xoxo,

Jean 🙂

Ten Hot Things you might Miss Last year!

Just to share with you guys some of the hot things you might miss last year!

These are some awesome contributions of articles educating the public like you and me on the latest trends in Beauty, Fashion, Sex & Love and Lifestyle issues!

As you may or may not know, I am the Beauty writer for My Fat Pocket so I’ll be sharing of my articles as well, together with the rest 🙂

1. Korean Celebrities’ Most Wanted Facial Features

With all the hype about K-POP, who can resist such beauties from Korea?

Ulzzang  is a popular South Korean term literally meaning “best face” or “good-looking”. Originally used as a slang term, this word in the English lexicon has evolved into describing a person that follows specific style of fashion.

Plastic surgery is no longer a taboo in the modern era. With figures skyrocketing, countries such as Singapore, Thailand and Korea have been attracting both men and women in getting their aesthetic features fixed by plastic surgeons.

Korea has been named the top country with most plastic surgeries done and shopping with bandages is so common that the public will not bat their eyelids at.

K-pop craze has been on the rise and continues to heat up the fever in many countries. Both men and women who seek to fulfil their ideal look, more often than not, refer to Korean celebrities’ appearances. Here are some examples.

2. Beauty Blunders And How To Avoid Them

1 of the main NO-NOs in this article is the piling of make-up foundation on your face! I am personally against this and I cringe at girls who have different skin tone on their face from the rest of their bodies, especially in pictures taken with flash! Choosing the correct skin tone for your foundation is extremely important and don’t pile them unnecessarily. Use a concealer when required. Unless necessary touch-up is required, the more you pile, the more pores get clogged which would escalate the possibilities of pimples/acne popping out! And no, looking like Geisha is definitely not a good thing.

3. Party Hard with Funky & Dramatic False Eyelashes

“Party rock is in the house tonight. Everybody just have a good time. And we gonna make you lose your mind. Everybody just have a good time…”

I’m sure most of you would be familiar with these lyrics by Party Rock Anthem.

Who says partying is only reserved for festive seasons? If you’re a party animal, partying is a daily affair!

Check out these funky eyelashes in this article to have a feel of what is it like to be different and stand out from the crowd!

4. One In Five Online Shoppers Buy Fake Goods

And moving on to Fashion articles, this chosen one definitely caught my eye over at My Fat Pocket!

The study revealed that 20 per cent of people based in Europe and the US browsing for discounted designer products on the internet mistakenly end up purchasing from fraudulent websites.

The risk of online shopping is in existence but what is more painful is the amount you pay for authentic branded goods, only to receive fake ones which are usually made of poor workmanship. The lower ‘grades’ and qualities can be easily segregated from the authentic ones.

Even with online forums which provides a platform for sellers to sell their branded bags as second hand goods, there runs a risk of being deceived and cheated of.

Receipts and serial codes are no longer a true verification of the authenticity of the goods. With photoshop and what not, anything and everything is possible to replicate.

So be careful.

 5. Melissa Launches Spring Summer 2013 Collection

Are you a fan of Melissa shoes?

Know for its cute owl logo, it won’t be long till it takes the girls’ hearts by storm!

They have recently launched their new collection filled with exciting and thrilling designs!

Part of the Spring Summer 2013 collection is also the Melissa classics where iconic Melissa shoes are given a splash of summer colours. Following the colour-blocking trend, the collection incorporates this design throughout the range of shoes. Featuring the colour-blocking design are Dance Hits, Aranha Hits, Prism and Gradient where two striking colours match to create an amazing summer look. The Dance Hits are also perfect for those long summer nights partying as they come foldable with an exclusive bag that you can bring along in your purse.

Shoes are 1 of the many which ladies can never get enough of.

6. Pant Suit: How to Own the Look & Look Desirably Feminine

Love wearing pants but daren’t because you’re afraid that you might turn off the guys with the masculine look?

Fear not!

This fashion article would help considerably.

Many are swapping the gowns for the androgynous pant suits, even on the red carpet. But which version will we look like – the Stiff-like corporate minions kind or the sex kitten Megan Fox version?

Sometimes, the women have got to show who wears THE PANTS. 😉

7. Is he Good Enough for you? Take the Tests to Find out!

In every adult relationship, there will come a point where you find yourself asking… is he a keeper or am I wasting my time? Do you decide based on a gut feel or are there glaringly obvious signs as to whether he’s a good man for you? Here are some tests which naturally crops up in every normal couple’s relationship. Pay attention to them when it happens and you will find your answers.

It is quite embarrassing to admit that in the recent years, more men are looking elsewhere for life-long partners instead in our own sunny island. This is definitely 1 of the many social problems in Singapore. With the increasing chances and almost near gender equality, women are currently in a much better financial position than before. This gives them a chance to empower over the men who feel helpless, meek and ego-busted.

Financial problems aside, with such differences in the current context, problems in other aspects of life replicate as well.

Read this useful article to find out if he’s worth keep and more importantly, your time.

8. Why Women & Men Think Differently

Apart from the obvious and inevitable biological differences, another stark contrast between the 2 sexes are their mentalities, which causes some couples to deviate from seeing things eye to eye.

1 of the many differences consolidated in this article is :

Being direct
Men are socialized to make direct requests, while women often just leave hints. When a man does not get things right, she will be pissed off that he did not read her mind.

Some men are rather insensitive when it comes to remarks but are they really to blame? They may just be honest about their thoughts and comments but often with low EQ and thus having to offend women.

While some women tries to play hard by being indirect, more often than not, they expect men to GET IT. Get the hint. But unfortunately, most men don’t. That is why women are better at playing mind games than men 😉

9. Celebrity Couples Who Stood The Test of Time

You have heard of the countless number of celebrities breaking up and patching back and the myriads of partners they have in their whole lives.

Now, wouldn’t you be interested to know which couples have long lasting relationships?
Aren’t they just looking sweet together?

10. The World’s 3 Best & Worst Men to Date

As much as more men are looking elsewhere for long-term commitments, the ladies are keeping up with the game as well.

It is difficult to shun away from the public’s eye if a Chinese Singaporean lady dates another nationality, especially the Caucasians. Sarong Party Girl is the term for them but if love knows no boundaries, why give a damn about what others say? 😉

Those interested to know which nationalities are the best to date should definitely bookmark this article.

There are many more interesting pieces for your pleasure reading and after reading these 10 articles, I’m quite sure you’re now addicted to My Fat Pocket! ;D

Cheap shift dress from Qoo10!

THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTORIAL. (Must disclaim first)

Good things are meant to be shared and sharing is caring! 😀

As mentioned previously on my Facebook page, I’m gonna share with you guys this particular seller from Qoo10 where I got my shift dress from! I bought brown and burgundy but the latter arrived in dark orange, however the colour shown below does not justify its accurateness. It is really more to orangey colour. Even the ones shown on the seller’s page is the same as the one I snapped, but trust me, it’s more towards orangey colour! That made made a little disappointed.

Please don’t stare at my armpit fats and my fat arms, thank you.

Delivery took about 1 week and item arrived in good condition. The first thing I tested were the zippers at the back of the dress. It got stuck a few times, especially at the extra layer of cloth, but when worn, the zipper is reachable and works perfectly fine.

Other than that, I bought size S and reading from the reviews of others on the seller’s page, be careful of the sizes you choose because most of them complained that they couldn’t fit into their usual sizes. Thankfully, I could but wearing the dress is a hassle because it’s tight, so I do get stuck, haha! But when worn, it looks perfectly fine and fits well on me.

Am happy because I’ve 2 additional dresses for work! I prefer putting on dresses to work because it saves alot of time. You need to crack your brain to think of what bottoms to match with what top.

Oh and I actually wanted the navy one initially but it was out of stock. But luckily, they were only going at $6.90 during a time sale, but has since reverted to $9.90 again. Well, $9.90 for a thick material made of suede is still something to scream for! 😀

If you’re getting them too, share it with your friends as well! 🙂

Weekend Updates!

Monday blues… Oh bother!

I hear you and feel you too!

Nevertheless, I trust that your weekend was gooood!

Some updates on my life over the weekend.

Drank some beers, a freaking whole lot of 26 large bottles consisting of Carlsberg and Tiger on Friday with bf and friends. I didn’t drink much because I was feeling bloated after dinner.

And come Saturday, bf and I went clubbing over at Butter Factory. Booked a table and ordered 1 bottle of Hennessy, 1 Vodka and 1 tower of Asahi! Eh and yes, I merlion-ed but I wasn’t dead drunk! I could still remove my contacts, cleanse them, remove my make up, wash my face, apply toner and moisturise. Heh, and yes I was well-prepared, all thanks to bf for advising and reminding me to bring along a plastic bag. Really came in useful.

Anyway, pictures! 😀

 

Saturday afternoon snacks from love! ❤

With Ning, my ex-classmate from JC, outside ButterFact.

 

And that’s my face looking somewhat weird and awkward..

With the girls~

Us 🙂

Hennessy

Belvedere Vodka

Asahi tower

Funky nerd!

Ms Fat pig’s smart idea to snap a self-pic inside the club…LOL

My handsome ❤

Hangover Sunday but still made the effort to head down to meet my friends to celebrate 1 of girls belated bday.

Cakes! Bday girl 🙂

OOTD for Sunday :

We specially headed down to Loysel’s Toy for brunch but stupid them had to had their kitchen closed!

What angered me was that after choosing for a good whole 5 to 10mins while standing infront of the cashier because the cakes were there, only then the cashier decided to inform us that their kitchen’s closed (and their online menu is not up yet!). I was a starving cat because the day before on Saturday, I had only a home-made slice of pancake because I had heavy snacks before that (see 1st pic). So my meals became a little irregular, ugh.

I thought I could have the whole Big L’s Breakfast to myself but no!

So we had some cakes and drinks, and headed to 126 Dim Sum, which I didn’t eat much either. Headed to town after that to walk and chill, and hungry me cried for food again! Had some creamy chicken pasta at Far East Pasta Mania but silly me couldn’t finish the whole meal and ate only 1/2?

God.

Anyhows, hope your weekend was great and many more awesomeness to come! 😀

Here’s me camwhoring with my sponsored beauty item – Hello Kitty Sleeping Mask which I will be reviewing soon! So stay tuned! 🙂

Gardens by the Bay – Weekend Updates!

Aloha! Monday Blues are kicking in I know but thank god mine ain’t gonna be that bad because bf and I are going for a movie marathon after work in town today! Bf won tix to Silent Hill movies (2 of them) and although I’m freaking out, I’m so looking forward to it! 😀

So anyways, I hope your weekend was fantabulous! Mine was a mixture though, particularly because I was down with food poisoning on Saturday! ARGH! When will I ever be fully healthy once and for all? It’s becoming a weekly affair right now.

Met up with JC mates on Friday for dinner at Song Fa Bak Kut Teh and some booze at Clarke Quay Aquanova. Patronised Rebel awhile before heading back as 1 of them had to work on Saturday morning. I know it’s how shitty to have something on the next day and you can’t fully enjoy yourself.  😦

Anyways, didn’t know what caused the food poisoning, could be the bak kut teh, the drinks or just the mixture of them? My friends were alright except me though.

Had a terrible Saturday morning and afternoon, and only recovered after taking meds and the jab and napping for 5hours. Had something light (Chicken noodle soup) for dinner that night but at a Thai restaurant.

Yesterday Sunday was filled with fun fun fun!

Family, plus bf and I went to Gardens by the Bay and we patronised the domes too! 😀

Pictures!

6 tix for all! But without my BIL, who went overseas.

Marina Bay Sands

Lovely Singapore 🙂

Inside the dome

The lovely waterfall at the Cloud Dome which is freezing cold!!!

Sampan…

And they have Christmas special! 😀

Teddy!

Pretty flowers 🙂

More pretty ones! 😀

KOP-ed this from bf’s cam. Notice the difference in image quality with the rest which were taken with my iPhone 😛

PRETTTAAYYYY!!!

We were starving so we dined at Pollen @ Gardens by the Bay. Ordered 3 set lunches @ $70 each. The prices there are whooping nuts man I tell you! Don’t ever go there if you want something that is value for money. But then again, expensive cuisine and dining are disproportionate to the value of money and the portion of the food served.

We were still hungry after that despite paying for so much! The sparkling juice ain’t cheap either and I hated it. Ugh.

I mean I won’t be the kind to spend a hugeass sum of money on food and am the kind of person who will just have $3 chicken rice to satisfy my hunger pangs. Am not a fussy eater (unless you are talking about unexpected parsley, ginger and icky stuffs on my food…)

But anyways, pictures of the food looks gooood 😀 And apologies that I can’t get hold of the names of the food though…

To go along with bread 🙂

Some crab meat starters…

Some veggie starters.

Some fish for main course.

Mushroom risotto

Lamb

Pre-dessert, lol. Some passion fruit jelly. Didn’t like it.

Can’t make out of it but my family were like saying that the brown stuffs looked like soil and the lemon-shaped thing tasted really like detergent :S

Don’t be fooled by the innocent greenish thing. It actually tasted like cucumber/melon’s skin! YUCKS!

Some sour raspberry sorbet with green tea crumbs…

And a sweet (ahem!) picture to end this post…

I know, the leaves are kinda in the way… lol

I am thankful for all the fun-filled laughter and lovely moments I was blessed with ❤

Sometimes, it is true that money can’t buy such abstract happiness. 🙂

xoxo,

Jean
