It was ohhh sooo niceeee!!! so yuummy! so.. not too sweet, but its texture was just.. sort of in between crummy and soft and I just love it!

Winter Yesterday, Summer Today

•August 25, 2009 • 1 Comment

Episode #1

After months of absence..here I am ..

So it happened. It felt like Winter 2 days ago, but yesterday felt like the start of Summer. I don’t believe it, I couldn’t believe it when I walked out the house yesterday to find myself in such humid weather.. O-M-G!
Well, for the past a month or so, I’ve been purchasing some skincare online, due to the lack of availability of these products here where I live.. (GHEY.. but ahh well)

And I’ve been postponing my purchases on BB Creams.. due to my indecisiveness and the lack of actual products here.. but I did get brushes, MAC primer, and brush cleaner and such =) I’ll talk about it another time.
It’s been making me smile (I know it sounds.. silly) when I find the package when I got home =)

First package: came from the eBay seller [legendeux]
-Skinfood Peach Sake Emulsion
-Skinfood Parsley & Mandarin Moisturiser Cream

samples!! (Skinfood Agave Cactus BB Cream with SPF36++, little bottles in a box of Skinfood Agave Cactus lotion and toner, Peach Sake Serum and Lettuce & Cucumber Water Drop Essence)

From South Korea

From eBay seller legendeux, south korea

Second package: from eBay seller [skinfoodbestprice]
Cappuccino Mousse Foam Cleanser
Oh I have to say, this is so smooth and soft like mousse!! It smells like mocha/cappuccino but it’s not that in-your-nose strongness, but imagine the foam that covers the top of your cappuccino.. yeah..that’s what it smells like. and it has what I’d like to call coffee microbeads haha.. it’s actual grains/pieces of coffee particles that helps with cleansing/gently exfoliates your face without overdrying it =) the texture of this foam is just like mousse (hence the name)! imagine those chocolate mousse dessert.. yeah, like that. so, caution for any little kids around, they might think this is an actual chocolate mousse if it went to their hands.. ><

samples!! (gotta love samples)
I received Agave Cactus serum, Agave Cactus Bb Cream (again..), Apple Vinegar Fresh Foam (what an interesting combination..) and actually I think that’s it for the 2nd package.. =)

Third package arrived today! I was not expecting that at all!! I thought it was gonna be another week !! But even better! hehe.. thanks sasa.com~
Well, this package contains:

1) Kanebo Naive Facial Cleansing Foam Peach
2) Kose COEN RICH Q10 White UV Protector SPF50+ PA++ (Smooth Touch) ..
omg what a long name.. but that’s what’s written on the item description in the delivery note
3) Mentholatum Acnes Medicated Foaming Wash
4) Mentholatum Acnes Powder Lotion (this is actually a toner..they just somehow call it Powder Lotion? so misleading..)
5) Mentholatum Acnes V Tinted Milk SPF50+ (this is a sunscreen before putting on primer or any make up of any kind..)

From Hong Kong

From Hong Kong

Well as you’d probably noticed I bought the Mentholatum set. i thought both my sisters and I could really benefit from it when those acnes are around But I wouldn’t really use this solely. Cause I have a feeling it’s a very strong and concentrated product.
So yeah! I can’t wait to try them out .. tonight! Well, not the sunscreen ones..they’re for tommorrow. But at least the wash and the toner =)
Why am I getting all these high SPF products? Welllll as we all know by now.. the Australia’s weather’s gone weird.. it jumped straight to summer.. where is spring? I don’t know.. Has it got to do with the issue of the salinity in Australia? I’m guessing so.. Well.. whatever it is, I need sunscreen on my face.. I tan oh too so very easily!! I used to be fine about this whole getting tan thing.. until now.. I don’t want to be all patchy with tan lines anymore haha.. I mean, it’s ok once in a while. Too much sun on my face gives me breakouts anyway! So that ain’t worth it.. rather be safe than sorry!

PS: should I trim my hair.. should I not?!! I want to grow it… =S

Chilly Night in July

•July 18, 2009 • Leave a Comment

it’s a icy cold night, with the smallest window to the outdoor gives you the chill that causes your entire body to shiver. I’m just about to sleep now and I thought of writing using my new iPhone, wondering whether this would work and maybe it does!
I’m wrapped up under the blanket with darkness filling the air around me. Rob Costlow is playing the background music while I’m trying to go to sleep…
So I think I shall bid you goodnight for now and till the new day…

Faint Fire

Faint and long gone
Your voice seem to be
But little did I know
That it’s buried within me

Just when I thought it’s gone
I hear your voice again
The spark came back to life
And everything seem to just begun

Not by tomorrow morning

Just made a song.. really really simple.. lol.. just mucking around..
Capo the 2nd fret, then yeah do the G C Em D and E chords..

Nobody can say
that I’ll stop thinking of you
by tomorrow morning
Nobody can say
that I’ll stop dreaming of you
by tomorrow morning

‘Cause I still think of you
‘Cause I still dream of you

Nobody can say
that I’ll stop feeling for you
by tomorrow morning

‘Cause I still care for you
Everytime we’re apart I just keep missing you

3 in the morning and I..

•May 29, 2009 • Leave a Comment

and I just made a song.. quite a simple one
but I have not made any song for a very very long time.
This one is sort of.. hmm I’m not sure how to describe it,
I was taking a break from the tedious and excruciating essay writing, and I decided to play the guitar, the good old very old classical guitar……
So I ended up with some chords I’ve been trying to remember..
I end up with this lyrics:

How does a prayer work?
If it does work at all
How does a wishing well
make you pay
your wish will come true…

*If prayer worked
What would you have said?
If wishing well’s true
What would you have asked for?
When reality stings you in the eye what would you do?

How does a shooting star
Do they let your dreams be real?
But if I can’t dream about you anymore…


It’s almost 3 in the morning… I shall bid you goodnight.
I had 2 or 3 mugs of tea tonight… and 2 coffee during the day.. woah.. Even I surprised myself.. I made them all myself, though.. =)
Oh and and I learnt how to play “Behind Blue Eyes”, figuring out some parts and looking up the tabs… now I just need to practice changing the chords fast enough .. =P nice guitar tune … one of my favourites..

It’s been 2 months and 2 weeks

•May 26, 2009 • Leave a Comment

It’s been 2 months and 2 weeks since you’ve been gone
I’ve been counting the days till the time I’ll see you again
But that time keeps moving away further than expected
We said our goodbyes that night, I’ve tried to not get affected.

So 2 months and 2 weeks it has been since you flew away
To another country far from my reach, far from my way
Others say I’m being irrational, impossible and forbid me to stay
To stay thinking of you, and holding on to the uncertainty.. you.

March turned to April that is my birthday,
then it was your turn when you turned twenty in May,
I could not help but to think of you every single day,
Every night I dream of you, thinking come what may.

If we were to drift apart someday I will not force anything to remain the same,
If we would to hate each other someday, I think that no one is to blame,
I guess it just takes time for me to get used to not being with you
You just get so used to being with somebody that I forgot how to be without you
The days have gone by with you always in my thoughts
I can’t help but missing you
And I can’t help.. but to still think of you.

-that’s it for now.- TBC –
