I feel it. The Adversity Wave.

Every once in a while, there will be a rough patch. And it's happened so many times that I recognise the warning signs. And everyday I fear them so, so much. That miserable period where bad things just kept coming at me RELENTLESSLY seems so...near. 

You have no idea how much I have done/refrained from to TRY to prevent this. Like, refrain from being TOO happy. I mean, I don't believe in pessimism, but not TOO happy. If you get it. I realise I sound like I'm contradicting myself, haha.

But seriously. Every time  I reach a 10/10 level of happiness, it'll fall to 2/10 in a snap. So magical - that's why I'm HALF CONVINCED THAT SOMEBODY IS PULLING THE STRINGS. 

I'm sure rough patches fall upon everyone, but right now, it feels like I'm the only one. And somehow, wherever and whoever pulls the strings, has something in for me. Just me. 

But this time it's different. I'm not gonna sit around so some sociopathic Gamemaker (if you watched the Hunger Games, you'll know what I mean) can sit around and play with my life like some board game for entertainment's sake.

I sure hope I'm just being sensitive/paranoid and this is merely a false alarm. And also, I can beat the odds. I mean, pricky prick President Snow thought he destroy Katniss by controlling that stupid game, eh? And he's always got what he wanted. Until the 74th year. I can beat this too. NOTHING must go downhill. Nothing. 

Afterthought:
Sometimes I think I'm thinking too much (Think-ception haha) Not the "adversities make you stronger" and "everything happens for a reason" lecture again, please. I think I may have a problem with phobia. Argh don't even want to think about it.

Shopping at Sephora has never been easier

Beauty addicts, you're probably just like me, and can't stop yourself from buying something every time you step into Sephora. Who can resist the pretty lights, shelves and shelves of wonderful makeup, skincare and beauty products?

Guess what? Shopping at Sephora has never been easier. Now, you can shop in the comforts of your own home, or anywhere you are, actually, as long as you have Internet connection. Sephora has recently teamed up with ZALORA, and customers in the Southeast Asia region will now be able to make purchases online!


Look out for discounts all year round! * gets into stalker mode *

Zalora is one of the most popular online shopping sites around, and if you haven't heard of it... well, which planet do you come from? :P

Zalora and Sephora are so famous they're like.. household names – in the world of fashion and makeup, that is. Put them together and whoosh...fireworks!

You can have endless fun scrolling through the list of different products (more than 250 as of now!), or filter your search according to what you're looking for. Category, price, brand... is that super convenient or what?
 

It gets better. Especially if you already know what you want, Zalora gives you another reason to shop online. For example, if you're looking for eyeliner, all you need to do is to click on “Make-up” and voila, you're in virtual eyeliner heaven! This sure beats navigating your way around a crowded store and our least favourite activity – queuing, huh? Come on, take a closer look.

Click on your desired products for a better view and more details. Notice that delivery above $40 is FREE, and you'll be able to get your fave beauty items in just 1-3 working days! Also, with a 30-Day return policy, you'll never have to fret about making impulse purchases anymore (though we all probably can't won't regret making purchases on such lusciousssss make-up products!)

There's a cash on delivery option too, so it's just like shopping in the store itself, except that you don't have to brave the after work/weekend crowd.



So, what are you waiting for? Click away!
Do some Sephora shopping online today!:)

No Title Day.

I'm at that age where the guys have just graduated and ready to move on to the next phase of life, and the girls just found their places in the workforce. And by places, I mean like... real jobs, and not those oh-lemme-float-around-and-explore-see-what-I-like ones.

It's also that age where nobody really expects to have to attend a funeral along with a hundred other twenty-somethings. I mean, I've heard stories, but it didn't hit me until it happened to someone I actually crossed paths with more than a little, you know?

Also, Gossip Girl (it's strangely addictive) is getting to me. I feel like I should have a catchphrase or a trademark tone or something.

Kinda morbid I know, but I've always wondered how many people will bother to attend my funeral. Looking back, I don't think I was ever funny/outgoing/vivacious enough to make an impact on as many people as I wish. Maybe people will be like "awww shucks I can't go, my boyfriend already booked tickets for the new Avengers movie", or "Sorry, can't make it, I need to work late!". Or spend hours discussing about it and never come to a conclusion until I'm already in the ground.

Sigh.

Wait.  I remember blogging about it. Let me Google Search myself and see what I can find.

Oh here it is: http://herbigfatnose.blogspot.sg/2013/05/examsssss-and-random-thoughts-about.html
And you'll have to excuse me because I was in that #butfirstletmetakeaselfie phase

Ugh, those dratted dreams again

You know, I think I actually had something witty to say. And then the wit flew away while waiting for my computer to start up. So too bad.

Ugh the dreams. They're here again. And it's fortunate that I don't usually remember my dreams - because in this case, the dreams are related to what I'm worrying about ATM. And very strange ones at that. Put my issues at hand in the Alice in The Wonderland Generator - and there you have it. My dreams. Very irrational ones. And you'd think I'd realise that oh, hey, this is a dream WAKEY WAKEYYYYYY. But nope, I never learn. Hahaha.

I'd tell you about some of my dreams, but I don't usually remember them. Unless I try really, really hard immediately after waking up. Except for the one I kept trying to take a picture of a piece of paper (not irrational this time - those were important notes). And somehow my camera either wouldn't work, or the focus was soooooo off?

And there were a few others I remember I felt were interesting. But you see, I've realised that, in my half asleep state, just about ANYTHING is interesting. I used to drag myself up with semi-shut eyes to type down my dreams because "they're amazingly EPIC dreams - I could probably write a book and get rich!".

(early morning insert: like just now I dreamt of somebody I know and something about real and fake human waste and mee hoon and photos? But I am too tired to try to recall the dream even though I know if I try hard enough, I will). Anyway, memeory's getting blurrier and blurrier by the minute. Hahaha.

I'm sorry to disappoint you by saying that... My dreams (if what I typed even made sense), are amazingly NON-EPIC. And I actually don't like using the word EPIC btw.

I was going to say something about Borat. But I can't, for the world remember how it'll fit here. I'll save it for the next (sarcastic) NOOOOOOOT joke.

But for now, I'm going to use the next hour to minimise the probability of Dreaming About What I Don't Want To Dream About.

周传雄, 十年不见 :D

今天我 看电视, 看到周传雄! 哇, 连电脑都能 autocorrect predict 他的名字, 不愧是人才。5566 和好多Jungiery Star 都是他带红的哦!

哈哈我这样说,好像真的认识他 hor XD

我就是看这个节目!喜欢小刚老师的人一定要看哦!你看, 他一出场就。。。哎呀 star quality 就是 star quality。以前的小刚老师, 我总觉得他不大喜欢在荧幕 (还是目光?)下,有时会觉得他感到不自在 - 可能是比较喜欢或习惯在幕后吧。 但是现在。。哈哈。。。看了就懂吧。



十年过了,他变了好多哦。 不只是长像, 举动,说话的语气简直像另一个人! AND YES I know there is a very nice Chinese idiom for this, but it just can't come to mind now. Just like how I forgot the term "job title" in English once hahaha.

OMG I GOT IT. 判诺两人!!!来, 给我一个Barney Stinston Hi-5! :D

还记得, 我以前超迷 5566 的。 唱片全都买, 歌全都会唱 (其实想在还会哈哈哈), 贴纸呢。。。哈哈哈。 现在想起来是有点不好意思。 但是真的感到尴尬更加年轻的时候疯狂台湾的 F4 啦 *脸红*. 哦,怎能忘记TANK呢?我有感觉这是个朋友们永远不会忘记的。 :X 还有 张栋梁哈哈 - but this one I still have a crush on.  Hahahaha.

说回小刚老师 (大家好像比较常用这个称呼啦), 他以前酷酷, 有点神秘感 (可能是因为他 的 trademark 太阳眼镜吧)。今天在电视前看到的他 really took me by surprise. I mean, he looks absolutely different! And he doesn't seem as guarded as he used to be. So funny and humorous too. And the smile is just.... different. You can't buy humour and wit like that.

他真是个优秀的歌手,超棒的制作人。你们知道多少人唱了他写的歌, 经过他的教导而红的吗?简直是人才。 如果我有他十分之一的才华,连高兴都来不及!


这些是几首我最喜欢的歌。 听过的不妨再听, 回顾/一下以前以前狂K-歌的时光。 若没听过, 就试试聆听一下, 也许你会喜欢!Don't play play - 当年, 这些歌曲全都进入广播排行榜的 okayyyy! XD
1。 存在
这首歌是他为5566写的。 我疯偶像剧的时候把这首歌倍数了哈哈哈哈哈。 其实现在还可以啦 ! 刚刚很投入的唱了两遍。 :X



2。 花香
  
这首可好像也是为别人而写的。 很顺耳 hor? 他几乎什么歌都有这种effect! 我能唱95%。因为这不是偶像剧的歌 :X
不管。造唱!XD



3。 我的心太乱

4。男人海洋
Chorus 很不错!但很不容易唱 :/ 

5。黄昏 (小刚是作曲人)
And this is because... this was 张栋梁's breakthrough song. Well, kind of, anyway. If I remember correctly (forgive me if I didn't),  it was this song he won the competition with. Song's a little too heavy for me but hey. It made somebody a superstar. I reckon Nicholas Teo would have won even if he sang another song, but this is significant okay? Kind of like how babies' first words are significant. If that makes sense to you.

And... A STAR IS BORN. Tell me, how can you not smile when you hear this song (and look at his smile) hahaha. If you haven't heard this song, I imploreeeeeeee you to. Just the first 30 minutes! Also, I like his enunciation.


And of course.... An idol drama song. It's not the theme song but there's just something about it!
Man, it's been at least.. 4 years since I last watched an idol drama? Okay I shall watch 微笑 Pasta again . For the third time. HAHAHA.

Creeper Nightmare :(

Didn't hit the snooze button twice today!  Not because of my newly acquired self-control, unfortunately.

Ugh. Had the most awful dream about somebody who has basically creeped me out my whole life (okay, exaggeration on my part - but true in a way) getting back into my life. Well, technically he's still in my life - but at a comfortable distance, thank goodness.

And that dream nightmare. Why, I don't remember feeling this horrible even after dreams about being on 5-storey speeding escalators without handrails! Or running away from murderers and realising that the whole path's actually a treadmill.

Ahhhhh I know it was just a dream but I feel so awful now. :( 

I hardly ever remember my dreams. And if I do, they usually fade in a while. Why not this time?

RAWRRRR. Time to develop a contingency plan. Life (4th time using this word in this post) is all about staying a few steps ahead.

This Week

A few weeks ago I went on a staycation! And there're so many pics I just kept procrastinating. So here's a temporary post with a few pics. Haha.
 
 




 
 
Photobomb. This is what friends are for. HAHA.

DRESSES AND SKIRTS FTW

This week shall be a Skirt or Dress week.
Because I like it. Some people cheer themselves up with chocolate. Some indulge in dessert. Others party. There's no rational explanation for this, really.

But skirts and dresses make me happy, and I deserve to be happy.


我决定了。这整个星期,我会穿裙子。因为我喜欢。有些人以巧克力而快乐。有些人喜欢吃甜品。有些人喜欢partayyyyyyy来解压。这些都没有什么合理或特别的理由- 就是个人的偏好吧。

开心就好!开心最重要!这是我应得的。

Found a photo from more than one year ago when I was obsessed with the 4-shots-per-second app. The mouth lol. I hardly ever do this anymore btw.
