Last Words.




Holla!

How 2014 Ends

Holla!!

For those who doesn't know, I'm from Sabah - Borneo of Malaysia. I've been living in KL for 3 years now (approx. 4). Feels like forever. People do ask if I ever go back to Sabah for good. Well... I don't think so (but I'll keep my options open).

My life have been a so-called-roller-coaster life. So much had happen that I sometimes just can't figure out how did I manage myself being in Kuala Lumpur for this long. Without relatives or family with me.

But I'll share what Kuala Lumpur has taught me within these few years. Hands up if you feel the same way too, okay? Okay.





#1. Kuala Lumpur is crazy.

I'm not sure how crazy are you staying in this huge city despite all the politics, rallies, rapes, kidnappings, road bullies but I WENT BANANAS! When I first got my car back in 2012, I tell myself I'll drive as nice as possible, just be normal. Geez, if only all drivers are Jesus! I've never been feeling as good as shyt when I honk at reckless drivers or swear at them as if they can hear every single beeped word I shouted out. LOLL! That poor motorbike guy. Okay now I'll apologize. 

I thank God and people who have been praying for my safety in KL. It may sound easy but especially for my parents, I know that they are constantly worried about me being alone here. My dad would call and said he read in the news that some dude fell into a pit hole in Germany or tsunami in Thailand and tells me to be careful. Oh my... I didn't know I'm all over the world. But yeah, I'm taking every precautions to keep myself safe too. Even when I forgot to lock my car, I'll double check if there's any crazy dude hiding in my boot. XD

And I don't even want to get started with the food here!





#2. Kuala Lumpur taught me to be a lone ranger.

Regardless you have a car accident or a car breakdown or you're too dead to see a doctor, at the end of they day, you are THE ONLY ONE who could rise up and move on with your life. You may get sympathy from people but there's no help given of you don't help yourself at the first place.

KL is so selfish that I learnt to rather scratch my own scars than to have people scarring it even deeper than it already is. From simple things e.g. picking furnitures to picking clothes in H&M to getting workloads done at work or asking help from people. All by your own decisions.

The reason is, people will always say the good things about you, things that you want to hear. But the ugly truth is never known until you reflect on your freaking life by the end of the year and say F*CK.


P E O P L E  A R E   J U S T  T H A T  C O M P L I C A T E D .







#3. Kuala Lumpur changes your appearance.

It's funny but yet it's really true. Haha! All my life, I have been a loose-tee-boot-cut-jeans kinda girl. I've never been bothered to dress for occasions or to pick a casual wear for an hour. Meh. But staying in KL...*pergh* Everything IS about appearance! I learnt to be more alert on fashion styles, upcoming season's collection, looking at people's weird outfit (and laughs at my owns). Sephora, ZARA, H&M, Benefits, Burberry, Prada sounds so good to my ears.

But so far my life changing appearance queen goes to my BRACES. Haha! It changes my look a lot. But still look like a man (blame my dad for giving me such huge nose)

If I've been in Sabah now, I wouldn't be good to myself. I wouldn't get the quote of "treating yourself better". I'd still be the same ol' kampung girl living a dull life.



(But you will be lucky to have a couple of friends who are willing to go through all these sh*t with you. And I'm glad I do have!)

The Significant 2014




2014 has been a very significant year for me, personally. I think I would remember this year much more than any other years that I had.


It started off pretty well. Nothing much I can complain about except for the usual – high living expenses. Haha! Joking.


But then things started to change, without a warning. Like a tsunami, things happen to my family, friends and me. Bad things. Things are barely inevitable. And when bad things happen, people get upset, mad, confused, sad.


The wonder of someone that you used to be so close with, suddenly vanished from your life. How could that possibly happen? Well, if men could believe in outer space life, isn’t this easier to believe? I guess it’s not that we don’t believe it would happen, but rather we choose not to.


Of course no one ever like bad things to happen to us, or to people that we care dearly. Ever. Whoever do must be an alien freak. So, all we can do it just to accept what life is hitting us with. It might be difficult.


Or IT IS RELATIVELY DIFFICULT.


But this is part of life. We all learn from the sorrows, heartaches, unhappiness, and regrets. That’s when people get stronger. Both emotionally and mentally. The heart will be full of scars. And these scars will make us wiser.

Trip of The Year, Los Angeles




Holla!

I thank God for this trip. Oops.. Maybe I should thank my mum. She was the one who got me this fully paid expenses trip to California. Haha! Love you, mom. I think my mum doesn't know what Blogging is. Hm.

Anyway, I wasn't really in the mood for a fun-happy-enjoyable trip. This was more of a.. mind clearing trip. A meditation perhaps.

But then let me lay out the simple itinerary of my trip for you. It started off by transiting via Hong Kong to Los Angeles. Then we took a bus to Long Beach to board our ship - Carinal Inspiration cruise. Our destination was to Catalina Island and Ensanada, Mexico.



 
 


I was loving the view when it was time to head back to the cruise. So sad that I couldn't spend more time looking at the beautiful scenery. :(






Ensenada to me is just another small city with a large community of poverty. No surprise here. But it's a good thing I got to see a lot of less fortunate kids around. I feel grateful for what everything that I have and don't have more now.







Been to Hollywood Walk of Fame, passed by Beverly Hills area and visited an outlet for major shopping too. Haha!

Just to share where I've been lately. :)

Oh.. And I travelled along with my fav Snoopy COACH bag and UNION JACK luggage too. ;)

Elemental Beauties with Fellow Bloggers - Water Themed

Photo Credit to Syaza

Hola!!!

November has arrived! And so I brought myself back to blogging too. Been busy with my new job and workloads and catching up with friends. Heh.

Anyway, this post is actually a little project initiated by Syaza from HERE. Sorry I was really busy with work and some personal issue so I delayed this post for 2 weeks >.< This project is called Elemental Beauties which includes Fire, Metal, Water, Earth and Wind. So I was hoping to do a Water-themed related beauty post and I'm not sure about this but I think Syaza read my mind and assigned me Water theme! Haha! Thank you lovely pie!

My initial plan was to do a nail art but after second thought, I switched to a simple and daily Water-themed make up. Water to me is very blendable. Depending on how and what you want it to be, it will be. It's just like what late Bruce Lee said,

“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”


Below are the products I used for this make up.


1. Sephora Collection Eye Shadow Palette
2. Bourjois Smokey Eyes
3. Egyption Magic Cream
4. Sephora Mini Make Up Palette Bag
5. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
6. Benefit High Beam Highlighter
7. Benefit The Porefessional
8. Benefit Bad Gal Lash
9. NXY Glam Liner in Glam Azure
10. Too Faced Jingle All The Way Palette

So here are my results!



Well, how do I look? Apart from using Bourjois Smokey Eye for my upper eyelid, for my lower part I used the same sheer silver from Bourjois as well as a sheer Teal colour towards the end and blend it up towards my dark blue. The I topped it up with NYX eye liner to stress the look even more.

I decided on this look after loads of googling from the internet and came up with this. Those from the internet are really awesome but it wasn't suitable for a daily wear. So I toned down the level to this. At least it's wearable either for a night out or a wedding or any special occasion without going too BOOMZ, you know. Hahaha!



Apart from me, you can also read up other blogger's post for the rest of the Elemental themes! Links are as provided below! :)

Luce - FIRE
Tiff - WIND
Miriam - EARTH
Syaza (Project Initiator) - METAL

That's all for now, see you soon!

Beauty Issue #7 - Miss Hana Lip Balm Crayon by Natta Cosme



Holla!!

I'm into lip beauty products lately as it's very convenient for a lazy person to put on make ups. Just a lip balm will do the magic! This time round, Natta Cosme sent me two samples of Miss Hana Natural-Born Lip Balm Crayon to try on! When I opened the box, I looked at the lip balms and thought "It really do look like crayons!" LOL WTM. Natta Cosme even sent a small pack of Faber-Castell crayons to write a message on a postcard (which I'll be sending it back to them). Cutie!


So these are the two lip balm crayons - Moulin Rouge Diva and Purple Sakura Season. The first one is more towards coral colour while the latter is a pinkish colour. Very girly and attractive packaging. You can even buy it as a gift for your closed ones.





My verdict is these lip balms are very moisturising to the lips. I purposely applied it on my cracked lips when I tried the Moulin Rouge Diva and I found my lips looked better after a while. I've always love coral-ish lipsticks/balms and thanks to Natta Cosme for sending me such gorgeous colours! Not really a pink fan but I kinda love this Purple Sakura Season on my lips. Heh. Looks soft and I had been using this colour whenever my outfits are towards soft and girly type too. Oh! And they smell really good too! Such a pleasant smell to put on my lips when I don't have any mint with me!

One thing I would advise girls is if you're going to a beach or somewhere windy, this won't be suitable as the balm might be kissing your hair too much due to the moisturising feature. Indoors, date night in a fancy restaurant or hangouts at cafes will be fine. Who likes being seen "eating" hair, right?

Million thanks to Natta Cosme for the samples again! *hugs and kisses*

9.9 - The Birthday Girl

video


Hola!!!

Last night was a great night, with a great date. It's an easy date to remember someone's birthday. Hahaa.. So the pictures above are of me and the gepochi birthday girl. We went out for dinner at Robata Monkey in Jaya One with a few of us. It wasn't really a fancy dinner nor it was a huge celebration. Just a few regular us having happy meal. :)

But we were too hungry and busy ordering that we forgot to snap some pictures of us. And I manages to snap a picture of the least favourite dish of the night *idiot mode on*. All the images above are selfies I took while hanging out with this crazy woman. LOL.

For her pressie, we surprised her with a set of Jet Setter Travel Kit too from my Victoria's Secret haul HERE . Hehe!


Happy millions birthday Sam Sam!
Selamat Hari Jadi!
生日快乐!(I didn't google this ah!)
Wish you happy and healthy until forever!! Hehehe!!

Ou... Not sure if the video I attached is going to work.
