Close Shave with Falling Christmas Decor!

You know, they say when you're about to die, your life flashes past you. All in a few seconds. I never believed you could see so much in a few seconds, but well, it's true. Not that I was going to die. But I kinda thought I was, so you get the point.

So... Christmas is around the corner, and it's time for pretty, pretty Christmas decorations! These look better at night, because of the lighting and everything.

I was on a shopping spree with a friend, and she told me "EH I;ve got a hoodie so I'm ok. But do you want to 开雨伞?It's drizzling."

Of course I said no. Or I wouldn't have anything dramatic to write about. Which is kinda weird, becaue usually, I'd grab any chance to show off my HELLO KITTY UMBRELLA.

Happened a few weeks ago, but I'm still spooked. Half-inclined to carry an umbrella over my head everytime I'm out, haha. Here's a closer look of the Xmas Decoration. This isn't the specific spot, because I was too spooked to take a pic right then #scaredeycat

 
So here's what happened. I was crossing the road with a friend, and I suddenly heard a crinkle. A very faint one, but enough to give me a feeling. Or you may call it...paranoia. It's amazing how much thoughts went through my mind that few seconds (though it felt like time stood still. Together with my limbs - coz they froze). First thing that came through my mind....
 
'DAMMIT. It must be a branch. I wonder how large it is. Oh I'm screwed'

Then...
 
Please don't let me die. I don't even have a nice photo and they'll have to use the photo on my identity card. Which is the most horrible pic I've ever taken.
 
I don't even want a funeral because I just blogged about it and everyone's always like "Oh I need to work", and nobody will come. Wonder if ghosts can cry.
(I'm not even trying to be funny about this because I've really thought about it. Sigh.)

Why aren't I moving? Should I be moving? Is staying still the better option? What if I move, and it lands RIGHT ON ME?

But hello.. I'm about to cross the road. Is there even anywhere else to move? Being hit by a car would suck even more.

Oh touch wood. Omg I'm going to be really pissed if it lands on my head.


Who should I sue if something happens to me?

Oh please I don't want to have to shave my hair off. Please.  I'm sorry for being such a bimbo, but the stares I'll get for....
 
Oh wait. Thanks to Hair for Hope, being bald doesn't come with that much stigma nowadays.

Screw this, why am I so unlucky?

Ok best thing. I'll  cover my head head with my hands.

Maybe I should look up, and see if I was just overreacting. I mean, it was just a crinkle.

Ok whatever. Traffic light's green now, time to walk. Better walk faster.

Next thing I knew... there was a louder noise... and one of the red balls landed right beside me. Broken into pieces, with sharp edges no less. Lucky, lucky me. I mean... the thing BROKE. Fine the impact probably wouldn't have killed me but it would have sucked all the same!
Yep. All these thoughts, in the span of a few seconds. I don't know how to explain it, but I think these thoughts didnt come in the form of words. They just... happened.. you know? I'm kicking myself being frozen at that point, but I guess it's a physiological thing, and it couldn't be helped.
 
And my friend and I froze for another few seconds after the Fall of The Red Ball. Hahaha. Right in the middle of the road. Hahaha. What a sight.

Oh there was this guy (kind hot btw), he actually walked back to kick the shards of Stupid Red Ball to the side of the road, so that it wouldn't puncture any car tyres. How considerate!

Ah. Hope for mankind. Yes, Mr. Gopalan Nair, it's true. Nice things do happen in Singapore :)

Why I paid $200+ just to get someone to Shut Up

Have you ever stepped into a spa/grooming salon/gym..

Then the  very aggressive staff just drone on and on and on about how you should live your life  sign up for their packages?

And when you agree, they'll be like "actually there is a much better one' ?


And then The Better Package gradually snowballs to become .....

The Million Dollar Package That Can LAST Until Your Great-Grandchildren Have Great-Grandchildren? 

And fine, I'm ranting, but you gotta admit, those promotion tactics are helluva annoying. I mean the tactics, not the staff, because I'm pretty sure they don't loveeeeee cornering, ganging up, and uttering torrents and torrents of numbers and act like cats fighting for fish.
I just spent $200 buying a package, and all because I wanted to SHUT THEM UP. Like buying my way out of prison LOLOLOL.


They never, never take no for an answer
and will continue talking the shit out of themselves until the customer gives in. Or screams STFU and stomps away, hopefully shattering the glass door in the process. It's usually the former, unfortunately.


And now, I'm feeling like shit because all I'm thinking is..
"What if they go bankrupt and all my money flies away?"

Selling Tactic 1:
Every single time... at your most vulnerable moment, the stylist (or whatever you call her), suggests some other service. Which frankly, is kinda hard to answer when you're gonna have like 50 hair follicles being ripped off your skin at one go. 

Selling Tactic 2: 
If you 逃过那一届, another hurdle is waiting for you at the counter. 2nd round of selling, and you begin to think saying no is a sin. Even if you're a paying customer. Like the level with the stupid dragon in SuperMario. Win or die. I've never gotten past that level.  Figures.


I don't know if the peeps who do Brazilian waxing promote their packages like that, but if they do... while unethical, I'm sure their sales will go sky-freaking-high. Because firstly. Who is in the mood to even THINK and consider the prices an stuff in such a... vulnerable position? And who, tell me. Who even dares to even piss the waxer off a little? It's all in the power, I tell you. Very Christian Grey-ish, just not in a glamorous way.

I mean, I understand it's the job and they are required that, but ethics-wise, there should be a limit, no? Don't you think this is something for senior management, or even, the authorities to look into?


I mean think about it, tactics like this are freaking stupid. Even though they are the best I have come across, I'm having second thoughts about continuing with them because the trepidation when I enter their shop is too much to bear. I feel like I am undergoing interrogation with CIA you know??????

Every single time, before I step into the shop, I'll take a deep breath, and repeat my mantra: "DON'T WAVER. DON'T WAVER. You are a strong, independent woman. You can do this. Yes you can."

Okay that was a bit dramatic but you get the point. 


EVERY. SINGLE. TIME I head to the counter, at least 3 staff will be all ready, trying to push/pressure/psycho you tp buy their stupid packages, leaving me no time to even think or consider my mind was just screaming OMG OMG 放过我吧求求你啦!!

Why do I still go? Because so far, they're the best. Actually, they're so good they don't even need to bug people. 


TODAY
I wanted to buy a smaller package today, but because of their fucking aggressive tactics (and you know I wouldn't curse if I wasn't that ... traumatized). OK la so you know I bought the bigger package which can last me like 3 years. But no fuck no, that wasn't enough. THEY HAD TO PROMOTE MORE AND MORE AND MORE THINGS. Like refer my friends, Christmas gifts... bla bla bla. I couldn't catch anything after  while. Or didn't bother.

Whoever their bosses are, you are rotten jerks, and I hope you get cornered and pestered to buy like... shitty stuff that you don't need for extravagant prices. But then again, you wouldn't mind, because you're laughing all the way to the bank anyway after having your staff rattling off numbers and OH LOOK, YOU WILL SAVE $20 MORE IT MAKES MORE SENSE RIGHT with a *are-you-stupid-or-what-and-I talk-so-much-already-if-you-reject-I-will-dulan-one-ah face*



Actually, now I realize there's a way to get around this. 

If you don't want to buy:
1) Just look blank, and keep repeating. NO. NO NO.

2) n your best android voice.  
3) You can try crazy eyes as well

If you want to buy a $100 Package: 

1) Pretend to be very interested in the $50 package.
2) They will pester you to buy the $100 one. CONFIRM.得寸进尺is what businesses are.
3) Look very vexed and indecisive
4) Say.. OK LA sloooooowly and very reluctantly (let them think they power)
5) BOTH PARTIES GET WHAT THEY WANT! :D


But then again, there's a bright side to everything.
$200+++ is a lot, but not as much as others. For example, a gym membership. I'm meeting a lady from the gym tomorrow, and this time, I'll stand firmly on my ground, FOR REAL. Because gym memberships are real killers on wallets of sweet young girls like myself HAHA. 


Tomorrow I shall be very thick-skinned, and buy a package only if I need it. If the lady gets pissed off, then too bad. No business forever, even when I'm filthy rich!

And please please please. Don't go bankrupt on me, ok? :) 

And tomorrow, during the gym consultation, I vow, swear, declare to me smart, assertive, prudent, and if required, anal, bitchy, and if all fails....


 对不起,你会讲华语吗?

And my brows do look pretty amazing.

But enough is enough, and when I'm done with the package, I'll make do with no-so-nice brows.
Or maybe there will  be better ones!  Just don't go bankrupt within these 3 years, ok?
After that I don't give a shit. Usually I would, but for The Rah Rah Rah bosses.... Nah. You should get a taste of what excruciating feels like.

My Wedding, and thoughts on getting older


Got your attention, didn't I? :D
Anyway, I took this photo just a few steps from where I saw the 'moth'.


We're all getting older. Especially me. As you can see from this. Salonpas. Miracle cure for aches and pains HAHA. It's a sticker thing with medicated oil. You paste in on wherever you're hurting.  And I managed to get it stick to my hair.  Hurt like @#$% when I took it out!
 
 
I'm writing about weddings is because I've been seeing a lot of it on Facebook. Friends of friends, that is. They always have.... so many guests. I don't know how everyone can have at last 300 guests, because I know I could never do that. Why, I'm so... anti-social, even 30 (from my side) would be a problem. Unless I invite my grandmother's auntie's sister-in-law's godmother's mother's cousin's grandaunt's mother too.

And wouldn't it be embarrassing, if I had 20 guests, and my husband's got the 'normal' 200 guests? B
ut then again, I don't have to worry about that. I mean, who'd want to wake up to a mess like this every morning? HAHA.
 
Ok kidding. I staged this. Hahaha.
 
 
Ok but anyway, since honestly, I'm not the marrying type so the next 'gathering' thing would have to be my funeral. Yes, it's a morbid thought, but nobody knows. I can't guarantee nothing's gonna happen to be tomorrow, or any other day after that.
 
I just thought of who would attend my funeral (choy, of course), and I came up with a grand total of..... I don't even dare to say it. And even dead, I'll be really sad.

Hi if something happens to me, I don't want a funeral. But I do want to trend on Twitter (or whatever is the hottest in-thing then) for a day. HAHA. Thanks in advance. Though I really don't want to die because my hair feels nice and soft today, for once. And I'm making videos to troll my nemesises (if there's a plural version) over my 20+ years, and I want them to see it sooooooo bad.
 
 To make it easier for you to erase that frightful morning face from your memory, here're some  realistic pics
 
 
Ok bye study time! I promised I'd buy this for myself if I do well. You may say 'it's only $9, just buy it!". But I'm a very thrifty girl which is one of (the qualities of a very good wife btw HAHAHA), so CONTROLLLL. 


I usually like Piglet but this time Eeyore caught my attention! Even my sister says it's cute!

 
Happy Family! Not very well taken because I had to take these photos on the sly. Haha. I love soft toys but I'm not like super rich, so I take photos for keepsake :P
 

Oh I just sang heartily to  Right Here Waiting while typing my looooooong Facebook password. I can't multi-task, apparently. Took me an entire song to realise that.
And here's the song, in case you're too young to remember! His hair. Hahaha. 30 years down the road, the kids will be laughing at OUR "outlandish" hair.

Finally. .An Update!

 
Hi y'all! I know I haven't been posting for quite some time, but school's keeping me busy! Never-endng assignments, and exams are around the corner! I know I know.. boringgg life! But I'm trying to change that so just you wait! *air of mystery*
 
And here's a little something so that you won't miss me too much hahaha. Nothing much, just a few frames I extracted from another video I did. It's only 13 seconds so please watch it. HAHA.
 
 If you aren't from Singapore, I hope you have fun trying to figure out what I'm saying! :D
 

 
 
Here're some snapshots I got! I'm very very proud of this HAHAHA because nobody ever notices me and my friend says I'm FOREVER NICE. Okay I'll give myself some applause hahahahaha *self entertainment*
 
 
Breakfast!!! And the egg's just for show because I don't usually eat eggs. Poser-ish, I know. Don't you think eggs emit fart smells sometimes? But they sure make nice visuals!
 
 
And this one. OMG. I got a TERRIBLE SHOCK when I was walking towards this.... thing. I thought it was a gigantic moth. And there wasn't anywhere else I could detour! Had to brace myself, hold my breath, pluck up all my courage to walk! Then I realised... it was just masking tape! I swear, it looked worse from far! Should have taken a video but was too traumatise to think straight hahaha.
 
 
My Parents. People of few words. Both 'k-ed' at me!
 
 
Oh and I haven't really taken many photos of myself because I kindaaaaa had a bad haircut... but here's one which isn't very clear. And if I may add... #nomakeup #nofilter #noedit.
Which is probably why I look so different from the video, when these were taken 1 week apart.

 
Okay that's all for now! Catch up soon! :D

NOISY INCONSIDERATE NEIGHBOURS

Some of you have heard me complaining about my veryyy niceeee neighbours. A few months back, I mean, Now I hardly notice the noise they make anymore.
 
You know, the ones who play musical chairs in the middle of the night?

Or feel the incessant need to shift their furniture around, almost every single day?

Or are trying to break the World Record by having the most number of thumbtacks hammered on the floor?

Or training to be the next Usain Bolt. Though it'd be difficlt because of space constraints - flats in Singapore aren't that humongous, you know?

Oh at least nobody plays with marbles. But marbles ok la. Because it means little kids are playing and they are so cute so I can shut one eye :D

I'm attuned to the noise enough to ignore it most of the time, but OMG YESTERDAY... THEY REALLY DID IT.

They....






They.....





Ahhhhhh......





You're gonna go 'WTF', I know.




But it ws traumatising HAHAHA





But I'm you have or WILL experience something like that.





THEY INTERRUPTED (and ended) MY DREAM.




Ok la it was a bit past 11pm, not THAT late, but had an early night coz I was extremely tired. I had the most AMAZING DREAM ever (though I can't remember anything now). Seriously, it was amazing, like if my wildest dream came true, around that level. And at the most CRUCIAL part of the dream...


EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. PLONKKKKKKKKK. AHHHHHHHHHH, BANGGGGGGGGGG.
 
I woke up with a start. Tried my very very best to remember the dream so that I could go back to sleep and continue it... but :(:(:(:(:(
 
 
Have you ever tried to go back to sleep just to continue your dream? Haha.

You probably want to slap me after this

But then again, we're getting older and I wouldn't dare do silly poses like that in a couple of years!
 
 
 

 
 
But here's what (oh look I found a mode which gets a good shot under low light!) REALLY wants to make me slap someone. People who pose with alcoholic drinks for the sake of posing with alcholic drinks. And write captions like 'I LOVE PARTYING'. 'WE ALL DRANK VERY *insert ridiculous which I cannot mention or they will know I am talking about them*". Haha. Oh I'm sorry, but does drinking make you a cool cat? Sorry la maybe I old liao. Want to ask me go club is like asking me to go die HAHA. Cannot sia me go one.
 
And besides I don't drink because I wanna (imagine that I) get high. Because if you get 'high' on beer you must have drank enough to fill a million camels. So if you say you got 'high' on beer because you 'partied' too much, You are either a camel or just a poser. Most likely the latter. Ok and here's a pic of a luscious, luscious 1/2 pint of beer (1 too expensive lah plus I don't want to be PARTAYYY GIRL by drinking ONE WHOLE PINT (sarcastic) leh. Aiyah should have camwhored with the cup a bit more hor. Then I can be cool :D Or can do troll post.
 
And I am not contradicting myself. The pint just happened to be there because lighting in pubs are always nicer! At least I nv go pub and call myself partygirl HAHA. Coz I always go pub gossip only haha. I must call myself gossipmonger. Gossip until very *ridiculous word*.
 
HAHA YOU ALL DON'T  SAY I ACT ATAS HOR. MY SINLGLISH SUPER GOOD. And for editors who may be my future employers, please be assured that I can switch from Standard English to Singlish, any time I like :)
 
 
 
Okay Bye hahaha. And here's another video of me practicing my 'speaking skills'. Very pathetic to have to practice something that comes to most people naturally, but well.. I can't give up on myself just because of that, right? So, I'm gonna post a video every few months and you can see if I've improved! And I know the number of 'I's uttered is annoying. hahaha.

Double eyelid surgery(HAHA) and somebody threw shit at me

Actually, I don't think somebody threw shit at me. Well, not exactly, anyway. I only wanted to catch your attention. Haha.



It's a complicated story. Or maybe it's only complicated because I'm not Enid Blyton (you know, brilliant and engaging storyteller).

So I had this really bad bout of eye problems on Friday, and on Tuesday (armed with wet wipes, and hand sanitiser, duh), I finally dragged myself to see a doctor. And also because I scared the shit outta myself when I Geh Kiang and Googled the symptoms.




I swear, Google is my BFF but sometimes I think we're Frenemies. The more I dig deeper... the more far-fetched things get. Like this meebo thing I saw on Instagram.



Oh here's a pic of my eyes if you're interested.

Sunday:
 
 
Okay. More than one pic.
 
Monday: "Double Eyelid Procedure" Day 4
I look like I just had cosmetic surgery to get double eyelids. Don't ask me why the swelling's at the bottom instead of the top now. I have no idea too!
Ok but jokes aside (btw my priority is sawing  off my bigfatjaw), I was panicking. And one eyebrow is higher than the other.





 
Tuesday: Double eyelid surgery aftermath Day 5.
WOOHOO At least I can see eyelids now! But  (again) seriously. I had it. Went to see a doctor.
 
 
 
Saturday:   Day 9 (NOW, actually)
I see triple eyelids. Actually I'm still panicking but it's ok maybe God is finally giving me Deep-Set eyes. Because God know how long I've been bugging him to look at least a bit pretty. So maybe a magical change is happening!! Maybe I've got a Fairy Godmother or something. Like in some Disney movie or some Science Fiction thing.

 
Anyway the doctor said I got stye (and 3 of them, Google it yourself).
I am the Stye Queen lol just that the upper eyelid one just felt feels wierd.
不知道看到设么东西. Amanda must be your cleavage la!


SO BACK TO THE SHIT STORY.
 

I was walking home, and at the same time, texting someone to tell her not to expect me today.... when I heard a trickling noise.. and the next split second... some brown liquid on my hands (and shirt also, but I only realised that later). I was like:

"WAH LAU who's that inconsiderate fool? Anyhow throw food out of the window! Don't know how to use dustbin ah? Later kena your neighbour's clothes, how?".

And the next split second... The stench hit me. I said a very bad word. Fucking disgusting ok! Imagine having god-knows-whose shit on your HANDS.
I can still remember the smell ahhhhh. Horrible. Overpowering (though it was just a bit). Unforgettable.


I thought it was like... soy sauce or something somebody just conveniently throw out of their house but oh no f**king no. You have no idea how mortified I was when the stench floated up. I have never smelt anything more powerful in my life. Not even when I had the worse case of food poisoning. Or when the sewer pipes broke. Ok fine. I've never experienced sewer breakage, but you get the point.

And when I wiped the ...WATER off with tissue, the smell was still there WTF.
OK la. At least it didn't land on my head. Or else lagi worse.

Anyway I was too traumatised and I immediately thought it was birdshit. I wanted to rush home to bathe IMMEDIATELY but the smell was really too bad, so I rushed to NTUC (for  Non-Singaporeans, that's a supermarket/grocery store) to buy wet wipes. I wanted to cryyyyyyyy because the stench was bloody unbearable! Took the shortest Queue (AND IT WAS EXPRESS QUEUE!) only to.....


Sorry about the bad words - i was traumatised la and you'd only understand if you really experience it! :(



TRIVIA TIME
Went to Google (haven't learnt my lesson), and was taken in by all The Evils of Bird Poop ANd the Diseases They Bring About and I almost started to prepare for a bout of deadly infection or pneumonia already #noshit #pardonthepun.

Anyway, after reading all that.. I became The Bird Poop Expert.
 
Did you know, bird poop's usually white-ish, has a toothpaste-like consistency, and if your bird's poop smells, it's most likely sick? And sometimes, the colour of their poop tells you what kinda sickness they've got! Oh yeah and sick bird's poop's toxic if inhaled too much. Especially if it's left out todry - most bacteria. Happens in soil and attics ususally. (Told you am a pro now) #callmeshushupedia


And then I came to this conclusion...

I thought somebody might have sabo-ed me. Some people dislike seeing others texting &walking ( I promise I almost never do it). Perhaps somebody wanted to teach me a lesson.
 
 
And the CSI fan I am.... I went back to the Crime Scene. Actually I wanted to:
1) Pretend to walk & text and see if anyone threw shit at me but I chickened out!
2) Stand, observe and catch the shit-thrower pourer (since it was so damn watery) red-handed
3) See if it was a simple case of sewer pipe breakage (it wasn't, btw)

 

*Puts on my best Mac Taylor Face*
After some extensive (albeit angsty) investigation... I officially draw my final conclusion.

It wasn't bird poop, it wasn't human poop. Well not really, anyway. I think it was most likely fertilizer. Notice that almost every floor has potted plants? And how the second and third floor has brown residue? Somethig must have overflowed la. I mean... we live in a crazy world but surely no one would throw shit randomly, right?


My next project is to catch all the Pigeon Feeders.
Yours,
Shu Shu, Crime Scene Investigator Wannabe.

Can You Understand This?

Since I don't know what to write about (notice 10 days of absence) and  blog hits decreased drastically because of that, here's something. I'm going to write about anything that comes to my mind WITH MY EYES CLOSED. 

                     Here it is, and I swear I changed nothing!
Dear diary, actyually I don't know what to wrote abnyt. I have been thinking and thkning dor ages., and have come to no concluision. This is why I a, typing with mty eyes closed now. I can imahge ithe whole thing is jigberris niy O dn't want to cheat because ttat ios wrongggg. Opops i jst opened my eyes for a bit. I didn't do as badly as I thought! I;m listening to Marrom 4 on the radio now. Oh fosh. Adam Leabin os sooo HOYTTTTT. And you think there us a chance that I'll get rthis perfect? MAybe I should LEarn The Art of Fingering. Which sounds wrong. I think. Heh Heh. FIntering I mean you know, they right way , like er,m. when we larnt in Paimar s choool ;ike which finger whou;ld be on which key and that. Ok I need to open my eyes and see what kind of mess I made!!  

I guess it's still ok. If you spend like an hour, you'd totally understand :D


And like always, due to boredom and because I can't get over the fact that I've FINALLY gotten a nice phone with a camera at the front.. here're some pics I took on the Taxi on Thursday (OMG I KNOW MAN. SHURIN. ON A CAB. You can buy lottery. Thank me later!)
 
Actually, I took about 10. But only 5 are passable. Well, that's an improvement, because I usually have to take about 20 to get an 'okay' pic! I LOVE YOU, FRONT CAMERA, even though you're only VGA! Good thing about blur photos - no need to edit.
 

Oh and I went back to Chocolate Origin for my favorite  Warm Chocolate Lava Cake! Simply to die for, totally worth the calories.
 
 
Second look. Ooze, ooze baby. I'd show you how moist the sponge is, but brown doesn't always... turn out right. ;)

Oh and Wardha dug this photo out.

When I look at this again, actually, I wasn't THAT ugly when I was schooling.  Haha.

Photo of The Week - Suntec City is still open, people!

And first I think I should say I could have done it better, but I kept having this feeling that someone was gonna hit me on the back of my head and abduct me. Haha. So it was like FASTER SHOOT FASTER RUN! Here's a reflection of Suntec City.. poor retailers. Nobody wants to visit because of construction works. Well.. more like nobody knows the shops are still in operation (NOW YOU DO!)
 

I must have taken about 200 photos that day... but I'm just uploading 2... for now. Haha. Have  never seen Suntec City soooooo empty before! Most shopes are still open, btw! So you can visit and shop in peace! Hhaha. No more bag swishing, elbow brandishing people!


For more photos I've taken over the year, click here:

Photo of the Week - I was tiny!

I know you probably find it very very very very very hard to believe.... but I was once tiny! Tiny enough to get into this!! Without getting stuck! HAHAHA. And no I my silly camera cannot achieve the bokeh effect. I had to edit it la. #mafan



 
Oh here's what I'm into this week:
Making wishes at 11:11.

 
And I love Hello Kitty but I can never really bring myself to buy Hello Kitty Merchandise because they're so expensive.  Sometimes I print Hello Kitty Photos and stare at them instead of buying the actual soft toys. And If I get married I'd say something like 'if you love me you'd let me have a Hello Kitty themed wedding"
 
Haha. Kidding.

Okay bye may I dream of Hello Kitty tonight.

[Sponsored Review] 2B Alternative

I've always joked about my face being a 100inch plasma TV, and my friends and family must already be tired of me complaining about my chunky thighs. Which are really gross, btw. So you can imagine my joy when 2B very nicely sent these over!
 
 
I've seen them in Guardian (but i left the price list at my workplace), but I didn't dare to buy them coz they were kinda expensive.. and what if they didn't work?? My $$$$.
 
But here's some hope!
I'm told that the 2B For Face thins out chewing muscles, improving the jawline contour without the need for cosmetic surgery. Famous celebrities like Nancy Wu, beauty editors and bloggers have been raving about 2B Alternative's slimming products.
 
 
The serum-like liquid is really clear, and you only need 2 drops! Glifes on easily, and there's no scent, no burning sensation, in case you're wondering!
 
And my verdict? Actually, I think it does work, though the difference isn't significant enough to be seen on photos. But I've got a good feeling about it, so I'll most definitely try it out and let y'all know again! My 'Before' photo's super ugly HAHA. And you can be sure, when I find out that this works, I'll write a really kick-ass review! :D

"Please do this' vs 'Please kindly do this'

I don't understand.
Why do some people say "Please KINDLY do this" instead of a simple "Please do this?".

I don't know about you, but I don't feel particularly kind when someone asks me to 'Kindly' do something. Sometimes I feel meaner. If you ask me, 'Kindly' brings the authoritative factor up a notch. Make that many notches.Don't you think that word's a tad redundant? Think about it. If you omit 'kindly', it doesn't make a difference in your intended message! Unless you're trying to sound authoritative, that is. But most people don't la.

This word IS overused though. Sometimes even worst than LOL.

Imagine you're at home:
"MINMIN (that's my nickname at home) Please kindly fold your clothes!!
"I just mopped the floor! Please kindly be careful!"

"OMG I can't stand this advertisement! Please kindly pass the remote control to me!"

Or if you wanna make requests like:
Please kindly wash my underwear.
Please kindly loan me 10 thousand dollars.
Please kindly shut up

Photo of the Week - Colours of my Life

 
Colours. Just what I need in my life. What colour best describes your life? If you say 'RAINBOW',  I envy you.

Sometimes, I look at myself, and look at others. And then I wonder, where is my place in this world.  I wonder what I'm supposed to like, who I'm supposed to like, and what I'm supposed to be good at. Will I ever do something that will change the world? Or even make an impact on ANYONE's life. Honestly, at this age, I still have no idea.
 
As I'm re-reading this, I noticed that I'm good at using 'I' in every sentence. Haha. Fat lot of good that makes.
 
 
Help, somebody?

I wonder why some people can be
1) Celebrities
2) Famous
3) Spies
4) Graceful
5) Good Looking
5) Charismatic
6) Always at the centre of attention
7) Everything I am not
