My March Obsessions

3.29.2015

When I gather up all the items I've been using NON STOP for the month of March, I realize it wasn't much I could talk about. But I really wanted to experiment on different editing techniques so I gave it a go anyway.

& I am very happy with the results! The lighting was an accident (lol lol) and I randomly found this music online. So much coincidence ey.


I hope you enjoyed watching it! :D




Here are some of the best shots that couldn't fit the video but I LIKE LAH. Don't waste good pictures you know. hahaha








okay except this one. It was an accident but I find it hilarious. 



Happy Sunday! I'm looking forward for April to come! ;D


Wednesday Jam: Mine by Phoebe Ryan

3.26.2015

I know it is Thursday now. I wrote this post yesterday but was out all day so I couldn't post it up. Just came home with a terrible jam along with the nerve cracking atmosphere of my gas tank signal beeping non-stop. But I'm utterly thankful for reaching home safely with the bonus of a bowl of warm scrumptious homemade pan mee.


How's your day?


________________

I'm super into Indie Pop lately. My go-to spotify playlist has been the Indie Pop. For real, all day err day.

This one song that caught me when I first heard it from the playlist, is Mine by Phoebe Ryan. It's just comfortable to listen to, and pretty catchy too. I think she's quite new (I'm not sure, do correct me), so there are very little of her music online. But this is good!




"I'll pull it together and fix myself eventually, I know it's mine"


It's an uplifting one. 


2 more days till the weekend! 
xo.




The Internship Outfits

3.21.2015

Hello people! How was your Saturday going? Today was a pretty chillax yet productive day. Ticking off 2 off my to-do on the list :D


One of it is to upload a video of my Internship Outfits! Since I just ended my internship yesterday, I thought I could put together a video showing the outfits that I wore very frequently during the past 3 months. Some are more formal, those are for my interviews and meetings. Some are very laid back, which is how I dress most of the time. Comfort first!

HERE IT IS!



If you've notice, I often put in a pop of color in my outfit because having the "formal" dress code doesn't mean the need to sacrifice that color. So yep, that's just me, I like my pop of color.

I hope y'all like it ;D




Thank you,

and it's Sunday tomorrow wootz wootz.

Degree in Psychology #7

3.20.2015

Hi! Another post about the amazing uni life.

Just got my results for my thesis this morning. Such a great way to start off my TGIF mood. Before I start rambling about the "thesis journey", I must first thank all of the amazing people helping me throughout the project. You guys are amuhzing! Props to my supervisor Dr Alvin, my dance instructor Joel, the studios who've gave me the opportunity to run my project, the sporting participants and also, of course my parents <3 br="">

I passed.


yes, using one night, ONE NIGHT, to finish up the discussion and final editing and printing and all those cracking nerve kinda stuff. For the first time, I didn't sleep for 36 hours, not even a nap. I was so stressed up I literally pulled my hair. I was already stressed up 2 weeks before the submission day.



But yes, I passed.


Today is the last day of my internship, I'm so lost. Very lost, I want to just sit in the corner and cry. I guess I need to use the next two months to REALLY just sink in and think about what's up next with my life.


Congratulations to the batchmates. We made it! Let's party hard tonight.


Joke.

All I want now, is a great sip of cocktail and some good music.



Wednesday Jam: Robby Hunter Band

3.18.2015

Good morning! The first three days of the week have been dreadful. I'm feeling extremely demotivated. The only thing that's keeping me more, alive is with this outlet here. Yep, so that's how people say it, you gotta set something you look forward to everyday.  :)


_________________________

Another Wednesday Jam, this time featuring the band called Robby Hunter Band. The band was discovered from a Favourites video from TheLineUp (the fashion duo from Sweden!), and BAM, there goes the hype for this retro indie band.

If you need music to pump up your day a little, this two music work, well at least for me.
Have a great day!


My February Obsessions

3.16.2015

Holla human! How's the weekend? I had a really happening one! :D Was a little bumped out this morning, still tryna calm down. Breathe, reflect, and move on.

______________________

I know I am a little late for a Favourite video but all is well, I've put together my favorite things in a short and sweet video! I called it my monthly obsessions just because...

(source: 9gag.com)

 Please check it out down here! I hope you'll enjoy watching.
The video is featuring my brother's pretty long hands, can you imagine it is a dude's hand! O.O






Here are some further details about the products:

1. Twinings English Breakfast Tea
Though I need my daily coffee fix in the morning to function, my daily essentials are still my tea. This has been my fave lately because it has the strong aroma that gave me the ahhhhh feeling at first sip. I got mine from supermarket like Jusco, Tesco and Sam's Groceria.

2. Mary Kay, Vanilla Berry Lip Balm
This thing here, is my baby in my handbag. I love putting on lip colors but I get chappy lips very easily. This has saved my life. It smells delicious (yes, the yummy kind of delicious) and is so moisturizing! Got it as an appreciation gift from my friend's mom, thank you!

3. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable, 001 Honey Douce
If I were to suggest any lip products to you, it would be this. It has been my favorite go-to lip product since last year. It is pigmented but moisturizing. I have lots of different shades but this is my fave of the month because it goes along with and without my glasses, so thumbs up! Got it from Watsons,


4. Herbaline, Relaxing Body Wash
Love the scent of this body wash! It has the relaxing effect with the lemon grass scent in it. My favorite part of the tiring working days will be to hop into the hot shower with this baby. You may get this from Herbaline

5. Toly Moly BCDation
Good coverage! I really like this, I usually mix it with moisturizer (you can see my GRWM video here!) and apply it with the Innisfree Foundation brush. If I don't have very obvious pimple or scars, this one will do all the coverage :D Got this from Korea but I think you can get it from Toly Moly Malaysia

6.  H&M White Slip Ons
I only regret I didn't get this sooner. It is comfy and it goes with ANY outfit. I basically slip this on and I'm good to go! Geez I need more of these. I don't know it is still available but you can always head over to H&M.:D



That's all for today, see ya'll on Wednesday!


xo.

Wednesday JAM: Josef Salvat - HUSTLER

3.11.2015

Since I'm graduating soon (nuuuuu), I thought I could work more on this little space of mine. So I'm making a few changes here and there :D Trying to think of a better blog name, suggestion ya'll?


____


Every Wednesday night I'll talk about my current jam, my favorite music that I've been abusing the replay button.


Imma introduce you to Josef Salvat today. I discovered his music from Spotify. His music are mostly electropop, but I felt like it was a little different, it has so much feels to it! The song that I've been listening to non-stop is Hustler, the song that brought me to him. It has this very misty feel to it, which I find very comforting to listen to.



"The mind says no sir
But the body says please
The heart stays silent
Such a silent tease
And I dont know why Im telling you this
Maybe Ive gotta get it off my unholy chest
theres a road once travelled
But one I havent walked down yet"




Read more about him and the song from his interview with Song Writing Magazine

He writes really well. It's a little bit dark, but, the melody makes it slightly optimistic. 


My other favourite from him are these: 




Listen to "This Life".



"I'm an optimist of the most dangerous size
There is more to this life 
I must believe that there is more to this life. "



Another one, "Shoot and Run"



"Oh, she doesn't know much,
But she knows this
Life's too short not to take risks"





Make more music Josef, it's addictive.

We are half way through the week, hang on there. 
Goodnight.

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

3.10.2015

Hello hello! I am back with a rather wordy post because... I was nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award! 

Thank you Rundi sisters for nominating me! I miss you both :D 
Basically, you are suppose to: 
  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you & link back to their site.
  2. Put the award logo on your blog.
  3. Answer the ten questions sent to you.
  4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Nominate seven bloggers who you feel deserve the award.
Faith and Grace (the sisters) nominated me so it means, 20 questions to answer! I can't wait to answer them so let's hop right into the questions.


From Faith 
1.  At home watching movies in PJ’s or drinks and night out with friends?
I would love to have a combination of both, having friends over or going to a friend's crib for a movie WITH the PJs on. I prefer movie with PJ but I tend to be the latter one all the time.
2.  Name your top 3 favourite things to do.
Dancing, sipping tea and movies. 
3.  How many circle of friends do you have? Categorize and list them down.
Hmm.. lemme see. The honeys, 5sAI classmates, the idk-how-to-categorize friends I met in hostel during high school, the 4 weird women, university batch mates, and the UG fam bam (dance mates).  
4.  Would you rather pay a meal for a beggar, or just give the money? Why?
I can't decide on this. But probably giving money because perhaps they need something other than food (eg: clothes) at that moment. Then again, there's so many "fake"  beggars around so I really don't know. 
5.  Crop tops or sweaters?
Can I go with cropped sweaters? Sweaters. Too bad I'm in Msia so sweater will have me all sweaty and sticky. So, cropped sweater will be nice. HAHA. 
6.  Name 5 things to be thankful for this whole week.
- Bought a pretty dress. WOHOO. (p/s: still want the other dress sobs)
- Had a great class with my kids on Sunday where I saw improvements. Huge achievement :) 
- Had a few great outings with the people. 
- Dance :D
- A late reunion dinner with the Changs, and finally meeting the cousins and nephew&niece! 
7.  If you were stranded on an island, what do you picture yourself doing?
Um, panic? Probably talking to lions after that. 
8.  You have 24 hours to choose anyone to be your life partner and they would be yours, who and what kind of a person would it be?
Adam Levine. ehehehe. Just, the Adam Levine kind of person. 
oh hi, *blush*.

9.  Choose 2 types of perfume scent. Floral, sweet, fruity, refreshing, powdery or sensuous.
Fruity and sensuous 
10. McD or KFC
MCDONALDS FTW

Questions from Grace
1. Name an obsession that you can’t seem to stop or get rid of
Well lately it would be YOUTUBE. It is addictive I can't stop watching Youtube. 

2. If you had a chance to rewrite an ending of a movie, which would it be? And why?
Probably Big Hero 6. I would love to have the elder brother, Tadashi to stay longer. He is so, charming. *melt* 


3. Which cartoon character do you see yourself as or which you think fits you best?
Um Kim Possible perhaps. I have no idea why but I love her outfits and her character. I can relate to her. 

4. If you had to choose between either eating cake or ice cream (not both at the same time) for the rest of your life, which would you pick? Why?
Ice-cream cake. LOL LOL cheat. I guess ice-cream if I continue to stay in Malaysia. 
5. Describe your perfect date. Describe the setting and sequence of it.
Perfect date. Okay first, this guy have to dress up. Pick me up, and holding flowers (I don't mind just ONE flower, but with good packaging la okay). Dinner would be nice, it doesn't have to be the expensive ones. Oh, a cafe with good music would be perfect. Having dessert after that and I would call it a perfect date! :D

6. What is the one thing you would tell your younger self if you had a chance?
Hmm, am I old already? HAHA. Well, I would really tell the teen me to go on an adventure! Study hard, and have fun! oh and also, worry less, that have been bothering throughout those years. 

7. Describe yourself in 3 words.
Positive, slow-to-warm-up, and 
8. Would you rather go on a blind date or on a date that your parents have already set up for you? Why?
I guess the one that my parents set up. As I grow older, I am starting to agree with the saying about the "mom instinct" kinda thing. So if my parents like you, you are half way there. LOL. 
9. Name 3 songs that you have on repeat for the past month.
Hustler by Josef Salvat 
Thinking out loud by Ed Sheeran 
Paint a Smile on Me by Black Yaya

10. Which sitcom or comedy shows would you like to act in? If so, which character?
How I met your mother. ROBIN. She's hot and smart and brave. She seems like the normal lady but when she does something crazy, she's hilarious. And I would like to have Ted going after me like that. HEH.

OOTDs | Lunar New Year

3.02.2015

Hello! Gong heii fatt choi!


Can you imagine it is chor12 already? I am having mixed feelings on how time is swooshing away :/ So I've decided to include "being a morning person" as one of my resolution, so that I could have more time working on things that I am passionate about. :D *fingers crossed*

SO, I have decided to make the whole CNY themed videos and I had fun filming and editing it! These are just some outfits I put together during the CNY. Lemme know what do you think about it :D Suggestions are very much appreciated!










AND HERE IS THE VIDEO




I think editing videos is now something I find interesting. Time to get that creativity juices spilling out! ;D


Before this, I am very taken back in promoting my blog and videos, because I felt like people will start judging in what I'm doing. Then I realize, if I am not proud of what I'm passionate about, how do I expect others to be?

so,



Be proud of what you are doing. 



ciaoz!
