It's that time of year again... *sigh*
Time to +1 to my age counter, time to get older! In just a few hours I'm turning 25 (shudder).
I remember when I was a kid, how excited I was at the thought of my birthday approaching. The gifts, cake and the party at my house with my classmates!
But now... I kinda dread that day. It just reminds me that time keeps moving forward always and we grow older everyday. Kinda makes me nostalgic when I think that my teen and early twenties years are over! They went by so fast!
Anyway, I'll have to make the most of my remaining young years before I reach the much dreaded.... 30!!! Argh!
Happy birthday to me!

I already had a lot of jeans that I wasn't wearing anymore. They fit me perfectly but they were bootcut style. Following this method, I transformed three of my favourite old jeans:
into skinny jeans :) Now I get to wear my favourite old jeans again.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the ipod shuffle 4gen and it was totally worth the buy!

For a more curly look, check out this video:
Amazing all the different looks you can achieve with a straightener! And I thought it was meant for straightening :p

A few moments later, the officer scribbled on his notepad, tore the page and handed it to me after I signed it. And that was Rs2000 down the drain... That hurts. Bad. Especially when you think of all the things you could buy with Rs2000 here. Snif.
The officer told me 'Miss, do your best so that this is your first and last ticket'. Hell, sure I'll do that now. I got my lesson. I don't want to waste another Rs2000 so soon. I tried to look at the positive aspect of this. It made me more safety conscious now. Sure it can be a pain to drive at 60 km/h but speed limits were imposed for a good reason: you are more in control of your vehicle should anything unexpected arise. Like a stupid stray dog crossing the road in front of you.
As I drove away, the officer smiled at me and wished me 'Have a good day Miss'. Argh. I ground my teeth together and drove away. Slowly this time.

So what do I do?
A broken arm or leg? The physio will help you to use it again by doing specific exercises or stretching, a process also known as reeducation or rehabilitation.
In my next post, I'll talk about the pros and cons of being a physio.

Hahahaha. I don't know if that's even remotely possible. Maybe if I keep blogging until I'm 100 years old :p But anyway, I'm happy if there are some people out there reading my ramblings and I hope that some posts have been helpful to you...
#5: Get wasted in Vegas
Yeah we're going to Vegas baby!!! I hope that I'll be saying those words one day. I wanna play American roulette in Vegas, watch Celine Dion perform, get drunk and party the night away! And get married in one of these chapels! Haha just kidding ;)

2) I love when it's raining outside and I'm indoors napping or sleeping. Yeah I sleep a lot.
3) I love potatoes. Baked, fried, boiled... cooked in any way!!! If there's potatoes in it, I'll love it.
4) I love playing the piano. When I play my favourite songs, I get carried to a peaceful and happy place.
5) I love The Vampire Diaries. Seriously, I've never been so engrossed in any other TV show before.
6) I love a walk in the park alone. It's been even more enjoyable now that football and dogs have been banned from it.
7) I love shoes. A girl can NEVER have too many shoes. Or clothes.
8) I love spending a weekend away from home once in a while. Resorts are the best (and expensive! tsk!).
9) I love songs that have meaningful lyrics. I put it on repeat and listen over and over.
10) I love driving my car. I've had my toll of public transport!

So if you too are suffering from insomnia these days, I would suggest trying to change one small habit at a time before going to sleep and see what works for you :)

Girls, if you're considering using eyelid tape, DON'T. It's not worth the damage it could cause to your skin.

I like experiencing new thrills, so I'll have to book a skydiving session one day. I've been to amusement parks in Europe and loved loved the rides. However, what I find pretty unfortunate is that it's awesome only while it lasts. But as soon as it's over, the adrenaline stops rushing and you just forget what it was like!

So let's begin:
#1 : Get married before I'm 30 years old.
When I was 15, I thought the ideal age to get married was 25. Well I'm nearing 25, and I don't see that happening anytime soon. Maybe in 2-3 years... but I'm really hoping it will be before I turn 30. No one wants to have wrinkles on their wedding pictures right? Plus I like the idea of being young newlyweds, it means more time to enjoy married life together when you're younger.

Almost 2 weeks since I hurt my knee. The scab is slowly going away, it's only the size of a bean now. It itches and I have to resist the temptation of pulling the scab away!

I'll agree with the video, when it says that the Chase and Honeymoon are the best parts. I especially like the Chase, and it's much more fun when you are the one being chased, not the chaser :p During the honeymoon phase, both partners are on their best behaviour. They do everything to please the other and do not see any flaws in the other one. This is a physiological process whereby you are 'blinded' by love. Nature wants us to feel in love and to reproduce.
I guess if there is one thing that every couple can do to make it work, is to continue to try as hard as during the chase and honeymoon phases. Keep the courtship going like in the early days. As soon as one stops trying, the trouble starts.
From my own experience, when a relationship is too much hard work, it usually doesn't work out in the long run. Being together should be relatively easy and natural. Sure there are bound to be bumps on the road, but nothing that cannot be sorted out calmly.
If your relationship makes it past the 3-year mark and you are both as much in love, if not more, than in the beginning, then you have found the right one. Our minds are physiologically programmed to be 'in love' for 3 years. Nature programmed us this way so that a couple would be together long enough to have a kid and raise that kid during his early years. Unfortunately after 3 years, you start seeing flaws in each other and things start deteriorating.
I'm no relationship expert... very far from it! But I've found these simple things to keep my relationship going strong:
- Do not take arguments too seriously. Try to make the other one smile/laugh even during an argument
- Do appreciate the simple things he/she does for you
- Say 'I love you' when he/she expects it the least
- Do continue going out on dates and court each other to keep the romance alive
- Do look your best for your partner. Put on a nice outfit when going out together to impress him/her, just like in the early days!
- Do talk about the past (nice times together) and the future
Good luck to you all!

I have mild acne which is mainly hormonal, as I tend to breakout more before the time of month. Then my skin will improve for a few weeks before breaking out again. Sooooooo frustrating. I've been to the dermatologist at least a dozen times since I hit puberty. It was always the same: antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide and a lot of other creams/gels to apply. Sure my skin would improve with these treatments but after 3-4 months, my skin would adapt to these creams and it would become just as bad as before.
It only made me breakout on the areas where I usually do have acne though, like on the cheeks and chin. I didn't breakout on the nose and forehead. So maybe it's making all the acne under the skin come out so that my skin can be better.
Last year I was using mainly benzoyl peroxide. After a few weeks, my skin did get better but then again it began to adjust to the treatment and did not respond as well.

- I tried putting glue first, then makeup. The makeup clumps on parts of the eyelid where there is leftover glue. Eyeshadow becomes very uneven and messy.
- I tried putting makeup first, then glue. Parts of my eyelid had the eyeshadow 'erased' due to the glue, and therefore the eyeshadow and eyeliner is uneven and all messed up.
On top of that, it is veryyyyy difficult to remove even with makeup remover + washing with water. There is always some leftover glue and I fear it's not too good for the fragile eye area skin.
Maybe the double eyelid tape will be better. It is more expensive than the glue, but maybe it won't be as messy to put on and take off. Waiting for my order to arrive...

I know, this doesn't really help to overshadow the glamour of being a real princess. But we can all find our prince, one who will treat us like a princess as we too deserve it!

For many people, Easter equals chocolate eggs, bunny rabbits and all the beautiful chocolate artwork that you see in supermarkets at this time of year (yummy!).
The real meaning of Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion.
Now that's what I call inspiring!!!

Luckily I had only superficial grazing, but does that hurt! Even after 12 hours it's still hurting.. it's like it's throbbing. I cannot imagine the pain one can feel for more serious injuries. I'm just glad I wasn't more seriously injured.
If I hadn't been so sloppy and had gone to the cobbler to put on anti-slip soles, this wouldn't have happened. It totally ruined my day.. and could have caused more serious injuries.
So if you have slippery shoes, get them fixed!! Or just don't buy them!

While watching some videos about Asian makeup on youtube, I discovered double eyelid tape and glue. I became fascinated by it. So much that I ordered Eye Charm glue on Ebay. Got it for US$ 1.89. I finally received it after 5 long weeks of waiting for it to come.

Listen to the news, you'll hear about child abuse, medical negligence and crimes committed in broad daylight.
Chinese people represent less than 3% of the population here, and probably the most street-harrassed community in this country. And in a country with mostly dark-skinned people, it's not easy to go unnoticed.
I don't really know how to react to those insulting comments about my ethnicity. Mostly I just ignore them and walk by quickly. If they are in cars and driving away, I may insult them back. Hatred generates hatred. The hatred and rage I feel inside at these times is beyond words. These waste-of-space losers should be the ones in wheelchairs or bedridden. Maybe that will change their perception of the world and make them less full of themselves.
I don't like to wish ill to other people, but if they cannot tolerate me, then why should I have kind feelings for them?

|OMG I sooooo want these shoes!!!! :(|
I've been thinking about starting a small business.. selling clothes and shoes. To make a living out of my love for fashion. Isn't that every girl's dream? To see all those beautiful clothes and shoes in front of your eyes, neatly arranged on shelves & racks.. even if they won't end up in your own closet, it is a pleasure just seeing them. Better yet, if you sell them, you will make a profit and be able to buy newer trends and enjoy seeing even more beautiful things.. aaaah. I dream of beautiful clothes, shoes and bags everyday. If I could become the owner of a fashion boutique, I'd be the happiest girl in the world.

No exercise= weight gain. It's as simple as that. Yeah life's a bitch.
If I hadn't started to become more aware of my weight and diet, I would have continued to gain 1-2kgs per year. That really adds up to a lot over the years. The earlier you start taking care of your body, the better.
Sometimes you may not have the will to exercise, but just think about the results: a slim slender body. That should boost you!
And it's time for me to hit my daily 30-min walk!

Finished college last year, currently unemployed, working as a freelance physiotherapist. Have loads of free time and so.. decided to start my blog!
