Best moments of 2011.

I had the time of my life in Melbourne, and I'm thankful for my family and friends who were supportive in my decision to take a BA in English and Behavioural Studies. The experience leading up to many other experiences have been so amazing, and I thank God for putting the seed of passion and perseverance in me. The past have helped shaped my present, and inevitably the future as well. To be honest, I left Melbourne with a heavy heart prior coming back to Singapore this time round, because I know there are bound to be some drastic changes. The past three weeks have been one of the most challenging times, and probably the toughest weeks I ever had this year. I'm writing this blog post to remind myself there are still some moments to conclude that 2011, despite the last three weeks, were indeed the best year yet.

1) Family flew down to celebrate my b'dae in March.

They could have wished me happy b'dae from SG, but they took the flight down to meet up with me. I am thankful that I'm blessed with my family. They are my best cheerleaders and have always been in my last 23 years.

2) Europe Trip in June.

Never imagined I would travel to Europe at this age. i'm blessed, very blessed.I've never felt so liberated going on this tour. Yes, I was afraid of travelling alone. I was afraid of getting mugged, and having to visit new places without anyone I know. But, it turned out to be my best travel experience ever. It is so surreal to be there, to be breathing the air of Paris, London, Rome, Milan, Florence, Prato, Munich, Tyrol, Amsterdam. Travelling had made me realised how lucky I am to be a Singaporean,and to have everything in my life despite not being a millionaire. This trip had made me understood what i should be enjoying in life and it doesn't have to be expensive. Simple pleasures do just that. I have learnt to step back and look at things differently from before. I have learnt so much more about myself and have definitely changed my perception on chasing worldly things.

3) Kris Kringle 2011

My spiritual family in Melbourne has helped me grow in my faith for God. They've shown me in action what love, family and friendship mean in these two years. Kris Kringle 2011 showed me that these are the people I will keep and cherish for the rest of my life. The homely setting where we all sat in, and talked and appreciate one another is one that I've never come across. They've accepted my flaws and helped me work on them, and for that thank you.


For calling me out of the blue when I'm either taking a dump, or doing something wierd. Thank you, because you always call when I least expect anyone else's call and just checking up on me. Thank you for all your impromptu calls, because you make me feel that you think about me.


Our friendship has grown so much. Despite being so far away, I always felt you were always there when I needed you. Thank you for your love and because of you, I now believe strangers can be the best of friends.

. Coming to the end of 2011 is just a good way of welcoming in 2012. I guess this year reminded me to take note of my surroundings. To stop and admire. To stop and listen. To stop and smile. To stop and appreciate. To stop and give. To stop and forgive. To stop and embrace.

There are many other events that shaped 2011 and have in one way or another contributed to my 2011. I ain't writing resolutions, but will aim to write a list of events/people who inspire me, novels that empower me to be hungry for more knowledge, and simple things that make me smile in 2012. To all who reads, I wish that you have the best count down to a year that will be filled with heaps of 'best moments'.

Bridal Shower

I have two weddings to attend to this month. One is on the 11th, and one on the 18th. It is amazing that most of my friends are getting married, or have a family already. Anyway, our party theme was pastels, and I wore my Alice + Olivia jumpsuit. The set up looked as if we had it at a restaurant, or better. I am rather impressed with the layout of food that Sharon and Isabel did. Now, I want to host a high tea session at my place too!

Bride To Be

A Girly Affair - Attempted crab and avocado, and smoked salmon ribbon sandwiches( last tier). Loved the scones!


Rachel's Graduation

Looking forward to mine in October 2012! Yes, 5 more sleeps to SG. So many events to look forward to when I'm back.

Quote of Wisdom

A good friend sent this a couple of days back and when reading it, I felt guilty that I, sometimes, get too caught up chasing after wordly things. Instead of holding onto what we already have (Family, shelter and buddies), we're always wanting to get the best grades, jobs, friends, approvals from people, and getting rich. Sure, these things puts you on an edge before everyone else.

But how often do you sacrifice the important for the unimportant?

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he said:

Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

Black Queen's Dance Cover

Beyonce's Single Ladies

I have been watching their rendition online for sometime now, and am so motivated by them. Geez, they are so coordinated! I'm never quite a fan on korean/japanese groups or shows, but this is just so good!

Haha, I am reminded of the small dance surprise we did at a friend's wedding just over a year ago. Enjoy!

Bobbi Vs Chanel

Not long ago, Brown came up with the long wear eye shadow, and just recently Chanel churned up their very own long wear luminous eye shadow. I was never a big fan of Bobbi Brown, but thanks to Stanley who relentlessly told me to give it a shot. Well, I'm glad I did because they have the longest lasting gel liner ever, and I have been using them since. Why so? It did not smudge even after 23hours of flight time, and it proved to be amazingly good in blending with my other eye shadows.

Well, after reading much mix reviews on Bobbi Brown's product, I decided to get it and try it out for myself, and got it in Beach Honey. I would say it is rather light,and looks great with normal to tan asian skin colour. On the bright side, it adds a slight definition to your eye, but on the downside, it creases after a few hours.

Brown in Beach Honey.

Just a few weeks back, I bought Chanel's luminous eye shadow in Illusoire. It is absolutely stunning. Yes, it is stunning! Honestly, I bought it because it looked the prettiest of them all. But, it actually complements my Quadra eyeshadow in Vanites amazingly well! Also, I used it as an eyeliner sometimes, or add a light stroke over it. The after effect is smoky purple eyes.It definitely lasts more than 12 hours or so, if you prime and moisturise your face before applying it. The application is easy and it comes with a mini Chanel brush (Plus Point!). But I prefer to use a proper blending brush for it. Well, it glides onto the eye areas without stretching my skin, and I could layer them twice/thrice, because it is not too strong in the first stroke. I personally like eye makeup like this, because I get to choose the type of intensity I want for my look.

Illusoire - Purple/Silver Pigments

Sorry if it isn't very clear, but my eyeliner is rather visible and the shimmer above it is illusoire.

Verdict: Bobbi is good, and great for a nude look. However, I'd prefer Chanel not because of its brand or whatsoever, but because it gives me the flexibility in going for a soft shade, or a much intense look.

Oh yes, I am back after a three months break up with blogger. Three months back, I blogged that I was going to tell you guys how my Europe trip went, but it seems that I got lost in post-holiday syndrome. Well, I have returned down south, unpacked and settled way back, and my facebook pictures definitely spoke a million words, so I think I'm going to skip publishing all the photos and save my time in doing so.

But the one thing that I want to share is the balm that held my lips together throughout the month long of summer dry spells and fluctuating night temperature in Europe, and it is none other than, Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm.

Trust me, I have tried many brands, Chanel, Paw Paw, Nivea Gloss, Nivea Matte, Vaseline, Chapstick, and Blistex. But they have never worked at all. I do have normal skin, but when it comes to 'THE LIPS', it becomes exceptionally dry and sensitive when it is not in its ideal living condition (Sadly, my lips do have a mind of its own). When I was in Paris, it tore,bled and chapped. But, the great thing about Paris is that they have a Pharmacy every 50 metres (literally). So, while my parents and I were walking down Rue La Fayette, we made a desperate stop at one to grab a lip balm. The pharmacist told us to take it from a bowl full of lip balms. Oh yes, I can be a brand whore. I was quite skeptical at first, because it only costs me two euros. Coming from SG/Melbourne, that is dirt cheap, and cheap things aren't always good. I know Avene is avilable in SG, but have only tried their mist water, but it is rather unsuitable for Sg's humid weather.

Anyway, so I used that for the trip, and my lips restored to being smooth and supple in about two to three days. It was that quick, and I was able to use my lipstick after that period. When I came back to Melbourne, the tube was already to its end. I tried searching for it in all the pharmacies, and even emailed Priceline if they still carried stock for it. Unfortunately, they no longer do. You see, I will never buy anything online unless I'm real desperate. Desperate because my lips started cracking and bleeding again under the winterish weather here, and eventually resorted in getting them online at TheGarden.

The great thing about this lip balm is that it doesn't feel, or leave a sticky after feeling at all. It has a slight shimmer in it, and it makes a good protection and cover for the lips. Also, I think it can be used as a lip primer before applying your lipstick, and it can also be used alone as a nudie. It has indeed become one of my beauty essentials. Affordable and long-lasting.

On a side note, I'm going to be doing an eye-shadow post next. So, stay tuned! Sigh, bad weather prevents me from doing anything outdoors + the urge of writing something gave birth to this post.
