Photos of me without glasses

There's been an obsession going on for a few years. Obsession With Thinking Glasses Are Super Ugly And Criminal.

I love my eyes too much to wear contacts, but I can take a few pics of myself without glasses HAHAHA.

Sometimes I get reallys scared that :
1) There must be a reason why most eye doctors wear glasses
2) Contacts may get stuck in my eye, never to be found again.
3) I'll get an eye infection
4) And then get blind for the rest of my life.

And sometimes, I like to avoid any form of bad luck, as much as possible.

Even though I do get teased (or gossiped about by not-my-friends) for wearing glasses.

And here's a super small one just for laughs. HAHAHA.

Anyway, I just wanna say.....

Hi Bitch, my eyes are bigger than yours. And I swear I only brightened the pics a bit.
Stay cool, nice, and funny, y'all!! :D

And once I was damn abngry and spent a damn big effort on my lashes and shading.... But  then I realised I have better things to do with my life. Like working hard and earning more money to get plastic surgery. HAHA kidding. I'm too much of a coward. Though it would be nice to wake up and see a nice nose in the mirror.

(Actually, no kid ever mad fun of me for being ugly. An adult did. A piggy-eyed adult who should know better.)

Awkward, Awkward me.

And now even the word "awkward" looks awkward because the more I look at it, the more it looks wrong!

Anyway.. I was in some competition a few days ago (will talk about it in another post when I get the photos). 2 particpants each from 7 countries were chosen because we scored the highest on a Facebook Challenge :D

Thanks to Panasonic Asia, we all got a staycation at Capri by Frasers and new camera! Here's the Camera! The day before I was like 'OMG PLEASE LET ME GET A RED ONE PLEASE LET ME GET A RED ONE', and was plotting and scheming on how to get a red one. Like arriving early, or checking out the unboxing reviews so that I could see where the colour indication is, and get the red one by 'accident' HAHAH.

Anyway, I got the  black one at first. It was sleek and nice, but I really was head over heels with the red one! And then... TRA LALA... Ridzwan (from India) preferred the black one, and what guess what colout he had?!?!


#happy #lucky #iloveupanasonic #iknowthisisnttwitter #butilovehashtags

It's all I've ever wanted in a compact camera. Nice colour, super zoom, amazing Macro mode, fast shutter speed, and it's super slim!! I had my first camera at 21, and the quality for that was even worse than the iPhone3G :/

Anywa, here's a photo of the contestants (the contestants from India aren't in this picture because they had a video interview at that time)

I think it's pretty obvious which one is me.
Speaking of video interviews (and that's why I wrote this post in the first place), I had a really tough time filming the video.

Question: How tough?
Answer: Like, I-forgot-my-name-kind-of-tough.

Which you, my friends may find unbelivable because I am the undisputed camwhore. Put a camera in front of me, and I'll be the first to strike a pose. Put it on video mode, and I'll be like OMGOMGOMG VIDEO AH!! 拍我! 拍我!!!!

And I'd show you the (many) videos where I did that but they're all in my external hard drive.

Anyway the point was THIS VIDEO INTERVIEW. OMG I am was so horrible that I may get famous because of it HAHA WTF. I was tensed, didn't know where to look and downright unnatural. I must have had a lot of kiam pak expressions. And I won't be watching the video hahahaha. Too painful!

I think the camera people (who were really nice and patient) must have been like 'TSK TSK THIS GIRL WASTE MY TIME. IS SHE STUPID OR WHAT'. LOLOLOL.

Anyway, I am honestly a little scared that a lot of people will make fun of me when the video interview is out. Or like in Keeping Up with the Kardashians when something different is potrayed from what I said.  :(  I mean there were lights, a gigantic camera and an equally gigantic microphone!! I am a super fail girl and actually I don't know why I am so bad at everything lololol *bitter laugh*

But then.... I actually AM doing something to reticfy that! I've been practcising my speaking skillssssss. For quite a while. actually, but no results yet. You can't blame someone for being horrible at something when she knows she is, and is trying hard to do better, right? :)

Which is why I am showing you this.

Not thay anybody watches them (except for April, Judith, and maybe Cynthia, Posic, Amanda and Yvo) HAHAHA. Because I wanted to keep it secret. Like... just a place to practise and keep tabs on my progress.

Sometimes, I imagine that one fine day, someone will go:

"EH SHU RIN AH. You're actually quite a good speaker ah. Very natural!"

Then I'll be like:
"Hahaha where got *humble and nonchalant expression but actually damn happy*" I anyhow one la. Just speak lor".
Ok that's all, and please don't hate me, I can be very nice, I swear.

Sometimes, nothing is ever "enough"

Today, I won $30 in the lottery ^^
And then I found myself complaining that I was THIS close to winning $514.

I managed to get quite a few "A" grades this semester after I resigned.
Actually, I got A for all  :D  Like finally. Last time: Full time work + night classes = average results. 
I found myself berating myself for not working hard enough because 'it could have been better'.  And really, it could. Especially for Feature Writing.  But then again, my writing standard is NEVER good enough for me.

Today, I found I won a watch from a magazine giveaway. I

t was called "The Massive Giveaway'. And then I started thinking I shouldn't have entered my name for the watch, and just the expensive stuff =.=

Today, I decided to collect the movie tickets that I won last week.
I didn't want to bother at first because I didn't think movie tickets were worth the trip to the organiser's office.

Today, I won a camera. A really good one. Fujifilm X100.
Not the one I've been raving about and going around calling it my one true love. In fact, it's 4 times more expensive and a whole lot more professional. Again, I got a bit sad that I didn't win my One True Love of a Camera.
Because that one well.... had a flip-out screen where I can take better photos of myself =X

And today I also found how how shallow and unappreciative of good luck I am.
And sometimes I think I get good luck in stuff that can help me nuture my talent because.... I have so little luck with my face HAHAHA.

Oh well, you lose some, you win some.

And I had a real awesome dream today and THIS TIME I managed to write it down in non-gibberish!!! :D
