CNY preparations

Nothing much to update on my life for the past 1 week or 2, no good food either because I’m kinda broke? I’d realised that more you work and slog, the more you spend. True story.

CNY is just around the corner. CNY Eve is actually this Saturday and the 1st day of CNY officially starts on Sunday.

Nothing much for my CNY celebrations for the past 3 years ever since the passing of my gramps. She’s the last grandparent I have and she was gone. Reminiscing these memories and recalling her death just saddens me much. I’ve never seen both my grandfathers before and my paternal gramps passed on when I was around 3. So basically, my last gramps was like the last of everything. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So from then on, my family and I hardly meet up with the maternal side relatives and well, my paternal side relatives ain’t that warm and affectionate as the maternal ones. I’m actually much more comfortable with my maternal side relatives.

And my family would be heading for Aussie for a long vacation without me. Actually, I chose not to go ahead with them because I’M BROKE and another thing is, I’m left with very limited number of leave days, which I’ve to scrimp on due to exams. I would most prolly have to take unpaid leave as well. Saddening I know, but receiving awesome results affirms that my efforts andย sacrificesย are effort well-paid off! ๐Ÿ™‚

So what am I going to do this CNY 2013?

Would prolly be the same as before. Head over the friends’ house to GAMBLE. I’ve grew a liking over the recent years for blackjack, but I ain’t no risk taker and no hard core gambler.

I place small bets, like 2 to 6bucks. 8 to 10bucks is when I feel I’m on a winning streak. If not, no I’m sorry. I’d rather use that for shopping or buy my meals. LOL.

And then I analyse… and analyse… and think alot before placing my bets. Playing with friends is not as bad as gambling at casinos. Pulling in and out at casinos are much more convenient if you know what I mean.

In conclusion, I’m a cautious player. lol.

DIY dyed my hair last night. I’ve people asking me where do I get my hair dyed at. YA I DO IT MYSELF. Using liese bubble foam dyes. I have waist-long hair, so you can imagine how aching my arms were, especially when I bend over to wash my hair, my back almost broke each time I do that.

I regretted not dying prominent reddish maroon before I started working because due to my work nature, I can’t have bright coloured hair. Plus, red dyes ALWAYS fade off and turn into BROWN.

Brown doesn’t look as good as red.

If I were to get my hair dyed at hair salons, I think it’s gonna cost me a bomb due to the length.

But I’m gonna trim my hair and fringe soon one of these days, most prolly on Friday before CNY Eve.

But first thing first, what is more pressing is my horrible nails.

I tried to DIY and paint gelish nail polishes on my own and smarty me tried to paste nail stickers over them as well. It was such as HUGE MESS.

The gelish nail polish was so clumpy, not sure if it’s due to my lack of skills or the product itself and the colours were so uneven. I have a UV lamp at home which I got it from Groupon previously. That too made me felt so cheated because I realised LED lamps are better and there are other cheaper UV lamps which are the same or at least similar out there. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Argh, it’s damn ugly I know. Plus the nails on my pointers easily chip off because they are often used compared to other fingers, so I have uneven nail lengths now. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But everywhere is fully booked! Every single nail salon I called is fully booked!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Should have just gone to JB to get my nails done earlier but I didn’t have time and bf isn’t feeling too well recently ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hope he gets well soon though ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyways, headed to Chinatown last weekend to get some goodies apart from those we bought from Giant.

Saw this sample display and managed to snap a picture of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you are prepped up for CNY this year! ๐Ÿ™‚

HUAT AH ๐Ÿ˜€

Love,
