5 Embarrassing Things You Might Have Done (P1)

Actually the first embarrassing thing that happened was that I made an error by typing "Embarrasing" woth just ONE "S". haha.
I named it Part 1 because I could probably write a book about my embarassing moments. A trilogy maybe. Perhaps series. Or a TV show that lasts a long as Days of Our Lives.Just cos I'm digging out old horror stories. Okay, okay. Not so old. 2 of  them just happened an hour ago. *sheepish smile*

I'm just hoping that someone's gonna go : "yeah I've had some of this shit happen to me'.
Make a girl feel better? :) haha

1) Checking your hair/face in front of a two-way mirror/window
You know how some windows look like mirrors from the outside? And people INSIDE the room can actually see everything clearly from where they are?
Did you ever peer INTO your reflection, adjust your hair/makeup and sometimes giving satisfied smiles =X

2) Singing obnoxiously in the washroom when you thought you were alone
Key word: THOUGHT.

3) Fall asleep…

[Youtube] Get a different hair colour every day with... chalk!

The video's at the end of the post! Obviously it's temporary, you can have a different look everyday. IF you're diligent enough to wake up earlier, that is! 
A few years ago, I swore never to colour/highlight my hair again. See why here:

Patches of colour/top of the head black and bottom black. Disaster, disaster. I look like one of those people the producers want to get to do some makever Before & After thing hahaha.

 It didn't look that horrible  freshly dyed:
Frizzy Hair + Permanant Hair Straightening + Hair Colouring = Disaster.
Took me more than 3 years to get my hair back to normal. AND because I couldn't dye everything black because my hair would die - I had to go around with very dry half black.half brown hair. It got so bad I contemplated cutting my hair really short - or even shaving everything off! So yes. Never colouring my hair again! Boring old black hair forever and ever and ever! Besides,  jet black ain't that bad!
I really wanna make this whil…

Photo of The Week - The Route to Work

I love  walking past this building on the way to and from work.
It's so pretty! And there's a cafe inside, so I get catch at least a few whiffs of aromatic coffee every time I pass by. Teehee.
And on good days, the yellow leaves (you see on the ground) fall like autumn is here.
Though we don't have the four seasons here.

So by know you should know, I try to write a bit about what's happening in my life along with my weekly photos. I've decided not to post photos of meet-ups because it takes a loooooooong time to upload those photos, and I guess only the people involved are interested to view them. Just you know, to check if I upload ugly photos. Haha.

I've been bugging some of my lovelies to work in the Central Business District area coz I work there, it's just fun to have a friend work nearby. Somehow. Po worked there for a few months during her school vacation, and we had fun exploring the place after work.

And now... one of my fellow gossip queens got a pe…

Brunch at Wild Honey!

I'm in love I'm in love I'm in lurveeeeee with these amazing breakfast sets from Wild Honey!!! Somewhat pricey, yes, but they're so super dto die for! My mission this year is to try EVERY dish they have, hahaha. Even though I'm The Serial Egg- Hater, and almost all of the dishes have eggs as a side. Haha. Scrambled, sunny side up, Benedict, you name it and MORE! Chefs get more and more creative. Maybe we'll have like Egg Volcano someday. But then again., maybe not. cholesterol, cholesterol.

 Imagine breakfast on a quiet weekend, with a view of the usually bustling city area, which would no doubt be packed like @#^&* in a few hours time! These are the bar seats btw. 5th pic gives you a better idea  :)

Oh the eggs nice, round, smooth and perfect! If only I had skin like that hahahaha.
I usually hate eggs but this is super nice! I've always thought that eggs smell like shit (literally and otherwise) but this was good. Still didn't take the yolk though! …

5 Things that make me feel good

Sorry there's something wrong with the alignment and I can't seem to put it right! I did this post a loooong time ago. Wrote down everything I did when i was bored outta my mind and these are what I came up with! There's a question for you at the end of this post! Anyway, you should really give these a try because they'll hardly cost you any $$$ ;)

1) Popping Bubble Wrap There's just something very satisfactory about hearing 'pop pop pop'.
Which is why I NEVER throw bubble wrap away after buying some fragile thing. #goodcureforboredom

2) Finding $$$$ in some corner of my room
From the times I just chucked my coins and small notes anywhere I could reach. Only times like this I can prase myself for being messy and disorganised. #ifoundtreasure :)

3) Exclaiming "OMG MY ICE CREAM!!!" someone walking in front of me stops ABRUPTLY causing me to bump into him/her.
Their expressions. Classic.
Narrow Path + Standard Speed + Sudden Halt = Domino Effect = Chaos

Photo of the Week - Wilted but still Still Standing Tall

If you've seen this photo before, thank you! It means that you've been reading my blog for a loooong time. I don't know if I took this by accident, but I love it all the same.
I think a lot of us can learn from this flower.

Anyway, something rather amusing happened today. I was walking along the corridor downstairs, and suddenly I heard someone from the cafe shouting:

And she sounded really worked up, so I made a little detour, you know, in case things got too heated up and they came to blows or something. *no actually I just wanted to watch real-life drama unfold HAHAHA)

The lady who owns the shop has the tendency to berate customers (especially the young  timid ones) over nothing in particular.  And she's really proud of that amazing talent- she loves to show off to any one who would listen.
We young timid mouses no choice but to let her bark at us since that's the onl…

5 Excruciating Instances when 5secs feel like a decade

And you know how I always try to think differently.
I don't mean the usual suspects like waiting for your exam results, queueing for sales/food/public transport. Or waiting for the needle on the weighing scale to stop, and being stuck behind slow-walking people. Though those are the most evil evil evil evil situations to ever be caught in.

1) When someone wants to tell you something but..erm.. eh.. thaaa.... that.......
And it is downright irritating because the suspense KILLS. I don't mean people who stutter or stammer - most of us do that when we're nervous.  But when you pause and trail off like that.. sometimes you make people panic. People to WATCH suspense movies, and not LIVE them. ;)

2) When you're waiting for the lift and it stops at EVERY storey
Even at the 2nd storey!
Or when you're in the lieft and you wanna fart.Especially when there's only one other person in the lift. I mean, you know, there won't be anyone you can narrow your …

Hello Kitty Mania P2

Remember my post about my Hello Kitty Glasses a few weeks ago? :)
If you haven't seen it, here's the link!
I just saw a PINK one in the mall yesterday. NICER!!! :(

Anyway just for fun, here's a pic of me with a Hello Kitty plate from a sushi place.

Photo of The Week - It's a Pink, Pink, World

Simply because, pink's my favourite colour. My walls are pink, bed's pink, mouse, water bottle, radio, and pretty much everything else! :)

Anyway, since I'm talking so much about myself... And I'm treating this space as my online diary.. Let me tell you about a text I received.

"Shu Rin! I got a new colleague! Very cute - just like you! And she speaks like you too - she keeps saying omgomgomgomg. She panics like you as well!"

And I've got a pimple on my nose. Ouch. I bet #littlemissperfect never gets any!

Top 5 Illogical Fears

Especially when they go mmmm.... ahhhhhhh.... oooooooo.  aiiyaaaa.
And an image of myself with black or worse, no teeth (at MY AGE) pops into my mind.

Hmmmm ohhhhh ahhhhh.

Birds' droppings
I mean, do you realise how hard it is to get it out of your hair? And yes, I've gotten it once. Unfortunately. #whydoesn't$$$fallfromthesky

Violent wing flapping - Pigeons You know how Pigeons are like girls who gather in large groups all the time? Yes, of course you do. Just add loud, violent flapping. PIACKPIACKPIACK.Photography wise, I have yet to get the courage to go near a whole group of them - they've no qulams flying at eye level at CLOSE DISTANCE. And I cringe at the thought of them flying smack into my face.

Butt-crack sweat on train seats.
I mean, why is there a LINE or wet stuff on the seat?
And yeah I know I'm being a bitch about this that's why I said ILLOGICAL fears. :)

Sharing a lift with a stranger
Because I'm a paranoid TV addict who …

Friday Girls' Night Out with 3/4 of the Y1S1 Clique!

Met up with my lovely girls last week!  Lydia and Flora couldn't make it, bummer, but we've got a lot a lot a lot of time to meet up next time!

I met Haira first because April (for the first time in her life, i think)  was late. Wanted to make her jealous so I told Haira we had to make many many photos. But hahaha I can only post a few #thepainofbeingunphotogenic.

Okay lah okay lah don't disturb April liao. Here's a pretty pic of you ok? I'm sure you'll have something bad to say about yourself though!! hahaha. I know you too will.
April with Haira. Haira's so small and cute!
Haira and I

A real Group pic with my thick, thick hair! I think if I ever sell my hair to some hair extensions supplier, there'll be enough hair for 3 people!!

Sososososo hungry trololol but still super indecisive about what to order. Stay tuned for April and Shushu's AUNTIENESS!

Anyway I better show you the pics of the food first or you'll say AIYAH SO BORING. WHO WANNA LISTEN T…

Photo of the Week - The Hunger Pangs

Since everyone's been raving about The Hunger Games, which I had no time to watch #sosad

Does this look like a dessert buffet? You know what?
This is just a mini mini mini corner of an international buffet. Soooo can you imagine how much I ate that day :P

Speaking of junk food, I've been having a lot on my plate lately, be it at work or in school. Which = resorting to happy food. Or you might call it comfort food. Bubble tea, chips, chocolate, ESPECIALLY MALTESERS. You name it, I've thought of pigging out on it.

And Daddy's so cute. He keeps reminding my sis and I: "Hey I bought kitkats. They're in the fridge. Did you see them?"
"There're potato chips in the cupboard, mummy bought a lot." "Oh I bought ice-cream, remember to eat!!!!!! SEE FREEZER."

And I'm not the skinny kinda girl, if you know what I mean.
Not athletic as well!!
So if anyone wants to be a sponsor for liposuction, please let me know hahaha.
