CNY / Days With No Photo

Hi human! I was reading back my blog post and i realised i didn't post anything about this year Chinese New Year! It was quite shocking because normally i will post pictures of it but this year i didn't. Hence, i figured i should post it now.

Anyway, i really have nothing to talk about this festival. 
So moving on to the next topic!

On 19 April 2016, Tuesday. It was just a typical day for me until evening, i went out with my sister to attend my first ever Zumba lesson. I was probably the youngest there since most of them are older than me. I love the atmosphere there. The studio is big and full of energetic people. Basically it is full of good vibe and energy. I was super excited because i want to join Zumba for the longest time. Anyway, i really like it!! It was super intense and i sweat like a mad cow. 1 hour dance cardio non stop was awesome! I was about to throw up half way but i pull through it and i am proud of that! Can't wait to attend my next lesson! It was really good to destress and just relax! Not going to lie, my body was super sore for the next 2 days.
After Zumba lesson, we went to meet my sister friend, Siew Hui. We went to eat at Long John Silver but because i and my sister was too tired and exhausted to eat, so only Siew Hui eat. Then after that, we went to buy crepe at a shop called Hot & Roll and i bought 2 crepe. i bought 1 savoury and i sweet crepe because buying 2 different crepes are much cheaper. I bought ham and cheese and chocolate oreo (i think). In the end, i think the savoury crepe taste better because the cheese is super nice. My sister also bought apple and durian strudel.

On 22 April 2016, Friday. I went out with ZiYun and Gillian to buy lunch/dinner with them and then we hang out at ZiYun place to slack. I bought honey chicken chop for my brother which i regretted for not buying one for myself and i also bought 3 thai milk tea for my parents. The thai milk tea was super sweet but hey, i'm not complaining. Home girl love sweet things! So at ZiYun house, we watched bunch of shows and i finally watch Deadpool. 
At first i was kind of bored but overall, the movie was not bad. 
I will rate 3.8/5.

So that's all for today post! 
Going to treasure my Saturday and Sunday before school start. :(
Bye :D 
Thanks for reading!

Why I Started Blogging

Hello human! I realised i have been blogging for almost 8 years which means that when i first started blogging i was 11 years old. Time really pass by quickly as i'm now 19 years old. I did briefly talk about why i started blogging in one of my post and you can read it here.

I started blogging back in 2008 and the reason that i started this personal blog and getting to know about blogger is because of school. When i first create a blog is due to teacher requirement because we have to write our reflection/journal. Then i thought to myself why not i just create another blog that is for personal use. Since young, i have a habit of keeping a diary and thought that i can treat my personal blog as a diary. So this was how this blog was born! Also shout out to my mum who always secretly reading my diary and think that i did not know. It's not like i keeping any secret from her so i don't really mind but i did feel like my privacy was violated.

At first, i'm really excited to have a personal blog because it was also kind of a trendy thing to own one at that time. I actually did not treat it really seriously for some reason that i don't even know. I write whatever i'm feeling that day, i have no plan on how to write it so it was all over the place. Moreover, i publish multiple posts per day and it was just really low quality posts. (Basically i just treat it like twitter at that time when twitter doesn't exist). Now whenever i read back, i was like what am i doing and writing. It was not detailed and i have no idea what i'm trying to say at that time when i read back the posts. Also, what i wrote is really childish, immature and sometime offensive that will hurt other people feeling. Overall, my posts in the past are really chaotic. You guys can still read what i publish in the past because i did not delete it. I did comtemplating whether i should delete it but in the end i just let it be because it was part of my growing up process. I have change a lot and have a new perspective and that's good. I love to see how i change and grow as a person....Becoming more mature and serious in what i'm doing. Also, it was good to read back to refresh memories.

Moving on, now i love blogging because it was easier than writing it down in my diary. Blogging allow me to share photos and videos with others around the world while diary can't do that. Hence, this is also one of the reason why i continue to blog. Also, i'm able to read other people blog post and comment on their post which is awesome! Blogging is good in general as i love to document my life. I treat it more seriously when i was in secondary school....I guess that's the time when i'm more mature. Even though this is my personal blog, i did not really share everything to be honest. I figured out that since public is reading it, i want to spread more of positivity than negativity. Also, some of the situation involve my family and friends and i think it was not appropriate to put it out there as i have to protect and respect them. It is not just about me but also about them. 

Maybe i will do another blog post about the pro and cons about blogging or maybe diary versus blogging or maybe what i learnt throughout blogging. That will be fun to talk about!

That's all for this post!
Thanks for reading!

Thoughts About School Starting Soon

Hi human! School going to start soon.... I know a lot of poly students already went back to school this week but ours did not start until next week. I just check my school schedule and i think it was not that bad. Start early, end late, but no complain. This is the life of a Science student. Even though i'm not looking forward to go back to school because i hate all the stress, projects and exams, but i have to admit that it is good to learn new stuffs and gain new knowledge. I actually can't wait to have busy schedule once again and have a proper routine because i feel so lifeless at home. Since school starting soon, that also mean i won't be able to blog every alternate day anymore because i know i won't be consistent with that. I decided to try blogging once per week if i can. Most likely i will publish post on either Saturday or Sunday. I will try because i really want to keep this blog alive and updated! I apologise in advance if i did not keep my promise and hope that you guys will understand. 
So that's all for this post.
Thanks for reading!
I really appreciate!

Places I Want To Visit

Hello everyone. Today i will be sharing about places that i want to visit in the near future. 

1) Hong Kong
I have been to Hong Kong before with bandmates. If you read this post you will know.
We went Hong Kong Disneyland because we have the opportunity to perform in there.
And i really miss those time. Hopefully in the near future i can go back and revisit the place again and also go to Lady Street.

2) Taiwan
I really want to go Taiwan because i never been to Taiwan before and also i heard a lot of my friends and sister saying that Taiwan have a lot of delicious foods. 
Basically i just want to try out different yummy foods.

3) South Korea
Again, i have never been to Korea and my friends say there are a lot of skincare products and cosmetic products which suitable for me because i love those things!

4) Hawaii
I really want to go Hawaii because i see a lot of Youtubers went there for vacation. 
But before i go there, i think i have to learn how to swim first before i can try out snorkeling.
Also, i will love to try out their fruits because i heard that their fruits is the best.
Also, i want to try out their helicopter tour!

5) Bora Bora
Again, i need to learn how to swim first before i can go here so i can try out their water activities.
I actually see one Youtubers went there for their honeymoon and the scenery is breathtaking.
It is a good place for people to relax and enjoy.

That's all for this post.
Thanks for reading!

5 Things To Do When You're Bored

Hello everyone! I'm currently on school break hence i thought why not i write about this blog post regarding to do things at home to kill your boredom. I have been doing all this things to kill my boredom since i'm such a homebody so i want to share it with you guys. 

1) Blogging
You guys may have notice that i have been blogging quite recently lately. This is because i was bored and i love blogging and share about my life and pictures. That's why i decided to blog more often because i know once school start, i will be blogging less due to my busy school schedule. Also, i love my planner. I love to write stuffs down whether it is a to do list or workout day. I just love the fact that i can physically see it and the satisfaction you get when you cancel it because you finish what you suppose to finish.

2) Reading
I have been reading storybook lately. Again, i know once school start, i will not be reading that much anymore because until then you will be reading your school notes and prepare for tests or busy doing tutorial worksheets. 
Let's be real here, school is really hard. 
Anyway, the book i'm currently reading is "Deliver Me From Evil" by Alloma Gilbert.

3) Drawing/Colouring
I love to doodle and colour if you don't already know. I have been doodling during the month of March but not so much during April. Don't ask me why because i have no idea too. 
I have been colouring on my favourite colouring book.
The colouring book i have is "Enchanted Forest".
I swear colouring book kill a lot of your time. 

4) Pampering 
Pamper yourself people! People tend to forget and neglect themselves. Come on, you are important and it is important to pamper yourself and give yourself the attention.
Since now is the holiday, you have tons of time to pamper yourself!
I have been painting my nails and give myself a good facial mask.

Both base and top coat is from Innisfree and i swear these products were so good!!!
Especially the top coat, my nail colour stayed for 2 to 3 days without chipping. (Normally my nails chip in day 2)
I have to say it have strong nail polish smell though but damn the gloss it gave me is so good!

My nail colour is "VIP Girl Nail Polish BL505" by Etude House.
This colour is gorgeous and unique.

I have been trying out Innisfree mask.
I have to say i'm not that impressed with this mask after i compared with The Face Shop Character mask. 
I actually dislike the smell. For some reason i smell alcohol in it.
It does leave my skin feeling smooth but i personally preferred character mask from The Face Shop.

Character mask from The Face Shop is what i love recently!
I was super impressed by it.
Packaging is cute and is a really creative mask but i have to admit if you put it on, you look nothing like the packaging.
I have no idea how to describe the texture. I can only say that it was different from other mask.
This leave my skin smoother than the Innisfree one.
My skin feels so smooth like a baby butt.
(I didn't used the monkey mask because i only tried the cow mask. Took this picture because i run out of the cow mask)

My Beauty Diary mask is my holy grail mask. 
I love the Bird Nest mask from My Beauty Diary but the Apple Polyphenol mask was not bad too.
It does smell like apple.
I have been a fan of this product for the longest time. Whenever my skin feel dry, i always approach My Beauty Diary mask. Always!
The Bird Nest mask leave my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturise while i did feel my pore tighten when using Apple Polyphenol mask.

5) Working Out
Come on. I am a strong believer that if you hate exercising, it means you have not find one that is suitable for you. I hate running and doing sports but i love dance cardio and pilates.
The Fitness Marshall (dance cardio) and Blogilates ( pilates) on youtube is my favourite fitness youtubers.
They are my sprit animals alright! :D
I actually have no problem motivate myself to exercise.
The only problem is controlling my diet because i love dessert so damn much.

That's all for this blog post

Outing With Friends

Hey everyone! On 7 April 2016, Thursday, i finally went out with my secondary school friends! :D It's been a long time since i met them and it was really hard to plan an outing that fit our schedule. Anyway, overall i still have a lot of fun even though i wasn't at my best condition at that time. 

So firstly, we met at Dhoby Ghaut to eat at Just Acia.
So this was what i ordered.

Then later on, we went to Clarke Quay for Tsujiri. 
I ordered Chocolate Latte.
To be honest, i don't know this is a latte because the menu only put chocolate.
So i was super nausea because i don't take caffeine well. 
But the drink taste good though.

After that, we went to take group picture that filled with Sakura flower but i guess you can't see the flower.
Anyway, it was a wonderful day out with ZiYun, Gillian, Lena and ReiChi! 
Sure enough, going out with them always make me laugh and have so many stuffs to catch up on!
I am grateful for that.

That's all for this post.
Bye :)

3 Books You Need To Read

Hello guys! Today i will be talking about 3 books you need to read because it was so good that it deserves a chance to read. Just to let you know about my genre of books. I tend to read non-fictional, biography, self-help and inspirational books. Occasionally, i will read fictional books if a lot of people recommend or the title attract me but that doesn't always happen.

Make Up by Michelle Phan
This is an awesome book and i finish reading this within a day. 
This book is really interesting and i gain so much knowledge reading this book. 
I know more about her since she did write about herself but i also know more about myself too. 
This book will be suitable for you if you love beauty, hairstyle, fashion etc. 
She have an amazing tips and trick and she also teaches us about job.
This book content is just a wide variety.

Limitless by Nick Vujicic
Again, this is also an awesome book. 
To be honest, most of the books i read are awesome. If not i will not recommend. 
This book is so inspiring and positive and also i love Nick Vujicic so much!
It have meaningful quotes and short story so this book will be for you if you are not really a reader.
This book just make yourself feel good on the inside, i swear.
You will see life in a different perspective and i love how it spreads positivity.

A Child Called 'It' by Dave Pelzer
Okay, this book is a little different.
This book is about Dave childhood and it was really sad. 
I admit, I love reading sadistic book. 
I used to be so ashamed that i love to read this kind of books because i think people just think i'm weird and sadistic.
However, i learnt to accept it and my friends love the same genre as i am so......I am not alone!
The reason i love reading this kind of book is because i see it in a different perspective.
Whenever i read, even though i felt sad reading it but i was so blessed about my own life.
Like who am i to complain about my life when my life is already good compared to them.
Moreover, they are so strong and positive to get over this situation and stand up for themselves.
I did not experience this so i have no idea how it feels but what i know is their experience is horrifying and able to get over it and forgive them is so strong. 
That's the word i can come up with, strong.

That's all for this post.
What's your favourite genre of books?
Thanks for reading :)

PS: I forgot to mention in my previous blog post that i also went Virtual Land and play basketball with my sister. It was so much cheaper than Timezone and i have a lot of fun! :D

Sister Day

Hey everyone :D. So after for not going out for a long time, i finally went out with sister on 3 April 2016, Sunday. It's been a long time since i went out with sister so i'm really happy to be able to spend time with her.

But first, let me post this ice cream pictures. I have been craving for ice cream for weeks or maybe months! I finally get to eat it on 31 March 2016!!! 
These 2 flavours are Cotton Candy and Peanut Butter and Chocolate.

Back to talking about this outing.
So, we went out to eat Old Street Bak Kut Teh for brunch with my sister and her boyfriend.
Then her boyfriend went home and we went shopping together!
First, we went to Bras Basah for books. 
But nothing caught my eyes.
Hence, we went to Bugis.

So, i saw this 3 shirts that i really like.
But in the end, i only bought the blue shirt because only that shirt fit me well.

Then we went to eat Astons.
Both of us fall sick and have a terrible headache because we got caught in the rain.
Anyway, I and my sister shared double chicken dish.
One is Teriyaki Chicken and the other is Black Pepper Chicken.
Our side dish is Mashed Potato and Mac and Cheese.
I only remember to take picture when we were about to finish.
I'm sorry about that.

So this is what i bought! 
The shirt and Innisfree nail polishes.

Then, uncle gave me this beanie which i accepted. :P
Never wear or own a beanie before. 
But it's okay to try new thing.
So, i probably will wear this out.

That's all for this post!
Thanks for reading!

PS: Remember the masks that ZiYun and Gillian bought for me as my birthday present? You can read it Here.
So i finally use the mask with my sister and it was amazing.
My skin feels so soft, smooth and moisturise.
I used the cow mask if you are wondering and my sister used the pig mask.
I have picture of both of us with masks on but i'm not going to show it here because it was pretty embarrassing. When you put it on, it's actually nothing close to looking like the packaging. Just saying. But i don't really care because it was an amazing mask.
