I'm a lazy pig..

Ya.. Haven't been updating..

Cos.. I'm very busy.. trying to run my sims' lives..
YUP!! Recently I bought Sims 2 Deluxe (which is the original Sims 2 and Nightlife) and I've been playing it almost every night.

I'm a Sims-fanatic!

It's really like playing God over your Sims which either you've created or pre-created by the game. Running their lives as if your own but making it even more perfect..

Now.. my hands are itchy.. hoping to buy more extensions..

Lao ban niang just flew to US for conference/ study trip. I was made the covering centre manager during her absence. It's the auditing period as well.. so.. I'm given the task of answering auditors' questions.. As everyone know, I'm a finance-idiot..

Ask me why this amount like that, that amount why no tally, why this, why that.. Haiyo.. How i know?!! I din do the reports and stats what!! Anyway, lao ban niang already told me, just tell them that she will get back to them when she's back.

Before she left, she asked me if I wanted to get anything from US. I dunno what to buy.. though i tot of asking her to tabao Dunkin' Donuts.. LOL!

Whatever it is, I told her that I will email her once I know of anything..

Then just yesterday, lao ban niang sms-ed me.. and told me she's at Bobbi Brown and asked me if i wanna get anything.. yes.. She's also a Bobbi Brown fan liao.
I guess everyone can guess what I will do next..

Open Bobbi Brown webby.. and saw their latest eye shadow palette.. Stonewashed Nudes.. and immediately got her to buy including 1 other eyeshadow which is not available in sg. My statistician also got herself a 2-way cake after trying out mine.

On the same night... my Surf N Sand palette came as well! Finally released in Sg!!! So happy!! My Makeup artist called me to pick up and when I went down to Isetan Scotts, he told me I was their 1st customer to get it. WAHAHAHAHA..
The colours are amazing!! So different from Bobbi's all other colours..
Definately worth my wait!!

Brought it to work today, cos statistician wanna see. I dabbed on 1 colour on her eyes since she already had her eyeshadow. Immediately, she can see the difference in her eyes. So much brighter! Tried on Queen and HR Director as well.. all 3 of them loved the colours..
Statistician requested that I bring my gel eyeliner and the palette so that I can do a eyes-makeover for her tmr. She likes the eyeliner that I used after seeing me using it everyday. Told her that she doesn't need to draw such a thick line like mine, cos, she got double eyelids and her eyes are big. Not like mine, small and single lids. LOL.. Must draw thicker so that it will show. :P

So.. tmr i'm gonna be a freelance makeup artist, just for the day..
This hobby.. is definately.. a expensive hobby.. :P
But like what my makeup artist said, he loves to see women smile after he helped them to put on suitable makeup and how it bring out their features. I like how my colleagues glee in joy when they see a difference in their looks. :)

Amore.. and my 1st Aerobics..

Had my 1st low-impact (fast-paced) aerobics class at Amore today..

Class was good.. with all my colleagues.. and... it's damned f**king FAST-PACED!!!

Hands like legs, and legs are like hands.. so fast.. until.. I dunno where my legs or hands shd be..

My body now..started to ache.. grRrr~

Anyway.. thanks to the aerobics, my makeup from bobbi brown is put to the ultimate test. 1 hour of continous perspiring.. and wiping from my towel..

My gel eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow stays on.. no smudges!

My foundation and blush, at least 30% stayed on.. considering that I din put much due to my high acne population (becos of the time of the month).

I din took off my makeup.. due to.. laziness.. LOL~ Yeah.. i know it's probably bad for my already bad skin.

Anyway.. my every penny spent on Bobbi Brown is well-worth! Ho Ho Ho~

Waiting for the next class next Monday.. I wondered if I will actually lose any weight at all..

Shall see after 1 month. :)



Kenna sabo-ed by Weijing through her blog.

I heard about Tag.. but never did I expect kenna tagged by my own friends..

Anyway.. for the sake of FUN.. I shall reveal.. the 10 facts about me..

1) I used to be very..very... tomboyish during school days.. Never wear skirts, other than my own school skirt and Girl Guide uniform. Always in t-shirt and jeans.. Even tot being tomboyish will help me 'gain' popularity with the boys.. DUH~ Felt so stupid now.. (-.-)

2) Wore this stupid-looking super big glasses during primary school. Prescribed by the optician located downstairs of my old block at Jurong West St 41 Blk 456. He said.. it was the most popular one then.. POPULAR MY F**KING HEAD!!! My NRIC is still bearing this stupid looking dork picture.. I shall reveal this ugly-looking alien to everyone..

Now.. I feel like digging my eyes out.. and YOURS TOO!!!

3) I guess I was much of an introvert before Secondary 2.. and a scarycat.. Scared of ordering food from hawker stalls, scared of going out without my parents, scared of getting called by my bro's teacher during primary school becos' it's usually due to his poor studies or mischief. Slowly became more outgoing after I joined Girl Guides later in Sec 1 (becos' one of my classmates pulled me in) and I said my first 'Grace' during our leadership camp at Camp Christine. yes.. i said 'GRACE' only, cos' I wasn't a Christian and no idea what 'grace' means.. so just say Grace lor..

4) My home once got its electricity and water supply cut off because my dad was out of a job and my mum wasn't working so we had no money to pay the bills. Luckily my family were close-knitted and helped us tide through that difficult time. I was only primary 4 then and preparing for my streaming exams. Since then, I swore silently that I will never let my family fall into that state again. Must work and earn big bucks and let my parents have a good life. That also helped me understand how some families struggled through such times during my course of work.

5) I was a comics freak.. started collecting DragonBall comics since young.. and now.. I have their full series.. as well as SailorMoon. Even collected A-Club magazines.. Think I spent almost more than 1k there..

6) I tried acted as an ah-lian once.. during sec 4... Ok.. a FAT ah-lian.. LOL~
Anyway.. I gave up acting as one.. cos' more or less, I'm already like one lor.. talk chor-lor, walk chor-lor,.. open mouth, close mouth all KNN, CB lar.. Tsk tsk.. BAD BAD BAD.. But still a student which teachers adore.. *evil laff* I was even a pet student of my Home Econs teacher (took Home Econs and F&N for my O levels)...

7) After Sec 4, engaged in IRC-ing.. and... a 'well-known' irc-er back then, using LemonTea as my nick where all others called me LT instead. Got lotsa god-brothers and god-sisters.. In fact my 1st boyfriend was from IRC.. and steady for 2.5 years. :P Sadly.. things din work out well.. I even heard he's already married now.. Congrats congrats..

8) I enjoyed my Poly days very much.. my most memorable part of my life.. with the company of my 5 other good friends, Qiuyun, Gary, Jianhao, Jason and the long-lost Bee Har. We were the gang of SPAC2GO.. Had so much fun also.. Even now.. our outings still drowned in lotsa laughter and fun.. SP is also where I got to know my buddy, Siti Awiyah or Awyn or 'Wyn' in short.. 8 hours everyday stuck together doing video editing during our final year project .. you are bound to just stick to one another.. We are buddies since then.. till now.. and will always be..

9) I LURVE going to WATSONS!! I can spent an hour or so there.. browsing through their stuffs.. especially health and beauty products.. Constantly looking for miracle products to make my pimples and scars disappear in a night or make me slim in just 1 dosage.. :P
I hate going into clothings stores which salesgirls like to use their eyes to mock at you for not being able to fit into their XL clothings. I will always curse them silently.. either shop will close down or the salesgirls will just grow fat and ugly for every chubby girl they mocked.
I will tend to frequent a shop/ salesperson if I find them very professional and friendly. That's the reason why I will keep on going back to my 2 makeup artists (Charles and Jerlyn) at Bobbi Brown. Not only the products speak for themselves, but the MA are professionals who will not judge you by your complexion.

10) Lastly.. I have a wish that I will get married by 25 and have kids by 27. Cos' I wanna be as young as possible when my kids are ready for the working world. Then I can go travel around the world with my husband. Then of cos.. it's a dream. LOL~

So there... 10 fun facts about me..
Mock if you dare.. WAHAHAHAHA~

Next on list to Sabo..
1) Raymond aka Tiramisuboy
2) Shu Juan
3) My bro - Patrick
4) Shermaine aka my bro's gf
5) Siti.. aka Wyn.. (pronounced as Wee)
6) Sock Mun (if she writes a blog.. LOL)

I haven't eaten so much in the past few months..

It must have been the company that I'm with that I haven't eaten so much for the past few months..

Lady boss treated the 5 of us to Kintamani Restaurant.. We laffed.. and we ate.. and we laff again.. We talked about work.. the people at work.. how their childish behaviour and attitude affected the whole department..

B'cos of their jealousy.. their belittleness of themselves.. their insecurities.. they made 2 poor colleagues cry on Monday. Even though the 2 gals did something wrong, but they have already apologised yet.. one of the 'children' refused to accept their apologies..

And so.. as team leader (and being the only leader around since lady boss and another team lead was not in), of cos.. definately had to do service recovery for them..

Apart from listening to what had happened (since I prefer to let Lady boss handle the 2 'children'), I did what I had to do as a friend- giving them a lunch treat @ Swensens. It's what I can do to let them feel better; they are not just support staff for officers to boss around but capable colleagues who did their best to whichever job given to them.

Even though the incident had passed for a few days now.. their hearts are already sore.. and bitter.. To think that those 2 'children' are degree-holders.. their behaviour are really worse than children..

I shan't comment much on them.. but I only hope that our department can become 1 united team..


Yesterday.. bf and I went to Vivo for a walk after his family gathering.. Took us some time (firstly I wanted to makeup before I go out) and Vivo carpark was full.. So we had to drive another round to park at Habourfront instead.

Walking around, bf asked me is there anything I had in mind that I wanna see/ look/ buy? I told him the typical stuffs lor.. shoes, bags, wallets or makeup lor.. Of cos, he will definately forbid me to go anywhere near Bobbi Brown. LOL~

So walking around Tangs, I was browsing through if I can find any wallets. I'm very choosy over what I want..
For wallets, no coin compartment cos it makes my wallet bulky. enough card compartment, cos' considering I have numerous discount and membership cards.

For bags, must be sleek yet sporty and can be paired off nicely for work and play. It's almost impossible to find such bags unless the bag is leather/ partial leather/ 'fake' leather.. I have set my eyes on 1 bag previously.. under Fion. It's a document bag.. but... it's bloody expensive at $200++. Other bags are either having too short/ long straps, too big/ small, too colourful/ dull.

For shoes, right now.. it's either I buy shoes for work which I prefer half-boots nowadays or casual going-out shoes. Boots.. till now I have not seen any that I like. Eiher the heels are too thick and ugly, or design is yucky. Aldo and Ecco are nice.. but probably can squeeze my wallet dry. Even everbest also dun have the design. Causal shoes.. saw many many.. but... SO EXPENSIVE..

Therefore.. the probably affordable one and easier to find is probably wallet. So.. we scouted through the mens section (yes.. I use mens wallet.. cos they have nice design whch the ladies one dun have and of cos' bf is the one who choose for me) and the womens section. I set my eyes on 3.. 1 Renoma, 1 Braun Buffel and another Balenciaga. I can't decide on which is the one..
Pricing.. is about the same.. and becos of GSS, it's 20 to 30% sales.

Walking around..thinking.. and decided not to buy, cos... I hv already sort of burst my budget..
But.. darling bf is such a dear.. said he will buy for me as a present. So.. I decided to buy the Balenciaga one. Soft leather, with no coins compartment and lotsa card slots. Sweet.. and 20% off somemore.. Me a happy piggy!!

Then we continued to walk around Vivo.. and went into Timberland since they also having good discounts. Looking through the shoes.. bf spotted a few.. and I spotted a couple of nice-looking shoes for him. Our fave.. was ultra-sleek, cool, and NICE.. but limited edition.. meaning.. even after discount.. it's still $250.. So we settled on another one.. $79 with 50% discount.. his 'fave' safety-shoes-lookalike.. Ha ha ha ha.. he probably missed his on-job training days wearing his safety shoes.. So.. gave him permission to charge to the card and pay it next month when bill comes.

2 very happy pigs left Vivo with a smile on their face.. We are glad that we both now have steady and reputable jobs and able to go window shopping. We compliment each other in some ways.. to make up for our own flaws. Our lives may not be as exciting as others but.. we definately enjoy each other's company so much.. that we dun need so many excitement in our lives. LOL~

However, to us.. once in a while, a little surprise will spice up our relationship that will last for a long time.. :)
