Long Distance Relationship

8.26.2017

Hello everyone, I'm currently on the train heading to Ipoh. You may or may not know, Joe is from Ipoh and he is still there. I'm back in KL for good right now. So technically we're in a long-distance relationship. I know it's not that far apart anyway, it's just a two-three hours ride but still it is a long-distance one. 

At first, I'm very skeptical about LDR because I'm the kind that need the presence of the other half to feel his warmth and care. We had lots and lots of nights talking about this. On some days I'll even breakdown at the thought of LDR. Like how? 

After lots of discussion and reassurance from Joe (thank you), we (or mostly me), finally come to a conclusion that we must at least try our best. I still don't know how this work, but both of us are doing our best in making effort to visit each other as much as we could. Also, to communicate with each other all the time. The thing is, both of us are busy with work. Our schedules are often opposite which bothers me most, but there's nothing we could do about it, work is work. 

Some people have told me to stay in Ipoh. But I just didn't feel like I belong to the place. I feel so much happier being in KL. With that said (& I've blogged about this before), I don't want to give up/change my dream because of him. I might feel sour/blame him when I couldn't have the life I want. Plus, I'm really lucky to have such an encouraging boyfriend that'll push me to chasing my life despite wanting me to stay as well. 

Still in the midst of adapting to this. Hopefully it'll end soon, but for now, this is the biggest challenge we'll have to face. Have any of you dealt with LDR? Any tips or thoughts in maintaining a LDR?


Thanks for reading and we'll have some fun content next! 

My Daily Disposable Lenses Story (Bausch + Lomb Biotrue ONEday lens)

8.22.2017

(What's in my makeup bag) 

Hello! My week started off pretty hectic T_T I started my new job, and am preparing for the documents with my new course next year anddddd picking up my part-time job. Thankfully all of these are going on pretty smoothly. PHEW! I do know there's some public holidays going on next week so I IZ VERY EXCITED.

Also, I remember that I've said I'll do a post on eyecare. So far I have not have a day where I could take nice pictures of the content I want. So I'll chunk it separately first. Today we talk about these Bioture ONEday Lenses and how I use daily lenses! 

(Read previous post for eyecare history)



I've been wearing lenses for the past 6 years. 
I started with those 3-months lens to monthly ones then to bi-weekly ones. Now, I've also included daily disposable lenses in my "collection". 

On normal days, I'll still use my bi-weekly lenses. But on special occasions, I'll use daily ones. 
Here's a few situation: 

1. Travelling
The last thing I want while travelling is a pair of tired eyes and the hassle to bring saline solution along. So, daily lenses are my best choice! I love that it's hassle-free and you'll feel comfortable in it too! A lot of times we'll be out whole day hence I wouldn't bring my bi-weekly ones because it'll be exposed to a lot of dirt and germs since we're outdoor long time.  


2. To the beach/pool
If I were to go to the beach/pool and I HAVE to have my lens on (because I legit cannot see T_T), I definitely wear my daily disposable ones. Once I get out of the pool/beach, I'll throw the lens away immediately. 


3. Long-day performances
As a dancer/performers, I'll need to have heavy makeup and lenses on for a long day for preparation. For example during Roots Dance Drama, I had to prepare by 10am and all the way until 11pm. I really didn't want my eyes to suffocate and with that heavy makeup on, my eyes confirm will get irritated (plus I got very sensitive eyes la) 
 


That's that! I've worn the Bausch + Lomb Biotrue ONEday Lenses for the three occasions before (now keeping a pair of it in my makeup bag as backup) and didn't have to worry much. Hehe. I hope you find this post informative! I would like to do more updates and informative posts rather than just products review. 

INFO:
You may get it at most of the leading optical shops priced at RM125/box of 30pieces.

Thank you for reading and I hope you had a great start of the week!

Story Time + Book Review | 这样的距离刚刚好

8.18.2017


Story time! 
Today I'm going to talk about this book that's written by one of my high school junior (Her name is 陈安时), and she's also a writer at Goody25.com! (suddenly have this odd realization of what have I achieved LOL)

Anyways, it's a short and sweet high school puppy love story. It's too cute that I keep smiling the whole time reading it. I've brought it to my Krabi trip thinking it's thin and it's an easy read; also I wasn't expecting myself to like it so much since I've only bought it to support her, BUT I LOVE IT. 
It was a really good conversation starter for me and Joe as well hehe! I read it all when we were stuck in a cafe due to the rain and finished off the book on the beach (omg best feeling ever, can visualize or not)

While I'm reading, I have a lot of flashbacks on my 'first boyfriend' because we're from Chong Hwa as well. I could really visualize what she's writing since she's writing her true story. awwwww. 
So, I'll tell you a little story about my first love back in high school *cringe cringe*


Mega throw back to when I was 15, we were liking each other a lot. So it all started with SMS-ing as well (it's so expensive T_T). 
There's this one fine day, it was a Saturday. I remember it so well because I need to stay back at the hostel while waiting for my parents to pick me up. It wasn't a very happy day because I wanted to hang out with them, but couldn't. 

Then we sms-ed as usual. 
"where are you" 
"at the hostel, waiting for my parents to come pick me up :("
"what time are they coming?"
"in another few hours I think"
...
"where are you? I'm here" 

yeap, he walked back all the way (we got no car ok so everything is full effort one haha). We were walking on the jogging track and having some great conversations. I forgot how many rounds we walked. Then out of a sudden he held me hand and yup... there you go (so drama)
We basically had to let go of our hands whenever we reach in front of buildings, and hold hands again whenever we reach the back of the building. LOL. It's so funny and ridiculous. 

This little cute yet funny relationship lasted for almost a year and a half. We moved on. To be honest, he was a really sweet and funny guy. We're in good terms and it's something that I would think back and still laugh at those little funny moments. 

Hope you're having a good week so far! I'll be back in Ipoh this weekend for work and coming back again for work T_____T Sometimes I ask myself why make myself so tired but let's do this! We can do this! *hypnotizing myself* 


Surrounding yourself with the right people

8.16.2017

I'm trying to pick up writing as a habit of mine so I'm trying to write everyday. If not, every other day. A lot say blogging is dead but I don't believe so. It still consist a bunch of people who likes creating content and writing. For whatever reasons, I still love this little passion and I don't want my blog to be overcrowded with products reviews/collaboration. 

Today we're touching on the topic of surrounding ourselves with the right people. I was away from home and away from the crowd that I love for about a year. Being away from them didn't seems like a big deal UNTIL I'm back. 

I could see how big of the difference it is. I was working hard far away yet I do not have a couple of people that I meet every now and then where we share and inspire each other. Don't get me wrong, my colleagues there are amazing as well! But because of our working schedule and job scope, it is seldom we get to hang around and meet up. As time passes by, I didn't know I was drowning into a very boring routine, which I did not like at all. 


This evening, I met up with my two best friends and we literally just talked for 3 hours! It's nothing like gossips (well, a bit la here and there we're girls ma), but I feel so much inspired and motivated right after. When you surround with people that are encouraging (AND HONEST TO YOU), you'll feel pumped up. I'm having so much courage in what I want to achieve now! 

At this age, I've learned to discard people from my lives. Not that I'll confront them and say "bye I gtg let's not contact"; I'll distant myself from people that I constantly feel demotivated and down when I'm with them. Even if it breaks my heart to do so, it's necessary for my wellbeing and mental health. It's important to take care of yourselves first. 


That's it for today. It's midnight and I have to wake up early so, good night! 
(p/s: I'm thinking what to call this kind to chit-chatty post. Suggestions?)
