Beauty Haul & Sushi King Bonanza

I still haven't blogged about my London trip last Dec!
Sigh...feeling so lazy to resize and upload so many pic...guess it'll have to wait!

Anyway, I went to 1st Avenue just now to shop for some beauty necessities and have lunch with my gf's at Sushi King!
Life feels so gooooooooooood when you have little things to worry about!
Or at least it's little until they become more apparent. :/

It was a good hair day!
I have been trying so hard to get my skin back to its condition before all the exams and project stress came.
But I've been sleeping late (at least 2am everyday without fail...sigh) so it's pretty much still the same except for the fact that I stop being so stressed up.
So I decided to doll up a little but with no eyeliner because I kinda felt too lazy to draw the lines...


A little camwhoring for a good day!




Outfit of the day:
Top: Nichii
Bottom: Leggings from Evelyn (hahah wore it to London and the condition was pretty bad so I bought her a new pair of the same leggings and I kept hers :P)
Heels: Shoepoint
Bag: BUM Equipment

Haha, I have never done that kind of caption before...but I'll probably do it only once a month...or less!

Good hair day! Can't be bothered by the dirty mirror! :P

So after buying my stuffs, I met up with MC, Serena, SP and HZ to have some sushi!
Sushi King is having their annual Sushi King Bonanza again and basically all rice-based sushi is only RM2!
Not sure how long the promotion lasts...probably till this Friday?

MC looking so neat with her newly trimmed hair!



Sausages on rice...Serena says it's Paul the Octopus with mayonnaise as the eyes. -__-
HZ and SP looking happy to have some sushi!!

Part of our plates. Actually we didn't even eat much but it's alright! One shan't be too greedy....



Georgians!



Mirrors in Sushi King! I'm a sucker for mirrors! :P

That pretty much sums up what I did for today!
And last but not least,


My beauty haul for the day:
Top left: Cheapo nail polish remover from Dynns? An accessories shop in 1st Avenue and it has thin cotton pads soaked in the remover solution..it worked well when I tried using the tester.

Bottom left: Olay White Radiance cream cleanser. A product I used to swear upon and finally came back to using it after Hada Labo and Ginvera. I think I mentioned somewhere in my blog before that I like to constantly change my skincare products because I feel that when the same product is used on the skin for too long, the effect isn't that significant anymore to me.

Right: Garnier self-heating sauna mask. Normally I'd grab the Garrnier Lightening Peel-Off mask but I thought it's time to change too! :D


That's all for now!
Before I get too laid back, I should kick start my final year project powerpoint slides...


Till next time,

xoxo,

I Forgot To Write A Title For This Post.

I know this is gonna sound wrong to some people, but I think I'm a really good kid at heart.
Everytime after getting my pay for my part time work, I'll look forward to the moment when I give some of my pay to my mom.
I know right, it's weird to feel happy to do that.
But she's the only person one earth (thus far) whom I'll be more than happy to give my money to unless I'm running short of it myself.

I have friends telling me that I look/am rich because of some unknown reasons (which I never really bother to ask).
In fact, I'm really not rich at all if you know me enough.
I'm probably one of the stingiest/ most kiam siap (after all I'm just a typical Penangite) friends/persons you know because I hardly splurge and I order sky juice when I'm broke. :P

You see, I started working part time in the shoe industry (hahahah, just a salesperson in a shoe boutique la) when I was 16 and I didn't really get to enjoy most of my school holidays.
I remember taking bus to and fro from work (not legal to drive yet, parents busy working, brother & sister were studying, grandma...are you kidding me?!?) and having someone to buy me carbonated drinks and was questioned by my boss if he was my bf (which he wasn't yet at that time I think), those were the days. haahahah.

And because of that, I managed to buy my very first mobile phone:


Nokie 2100


And it lasted me a good few years until I decided to get a new phone which was this because of the color screen fever:

LG model. Forgotten which model and yes I still keep it!

However, this LG model lasted me very short because in 2007, it gave up on me (I don't know why but as you can see my phone still looks very new) and I changed a new phone again after upgrading my part time job to becoming another salesperson in OSIM while waiting for STPM results (which made me realise I will not want to be in any sales/marketing related jobs in the near future) because of its high pay.
And this was what I bought:

Noka 6131

Oh yes, I'm a HUGE Nokia fan. Whenever anyone asks me which phone to get, I'll straight away say Nokia. That's how much I trusted/loved Nokia.
In fact, my first Nokia didn't spoil when I decided to get this new one but I gave it to my mom.
I'm not too sure what's with the flip phones but I tend to get more attracted to flip phones at that time.
I have never once dropped my Nokia 6131 until now.
The first dropped was caused by a friend whom I asked to take care of it for a while (which she obviously didn't!!) and another drop was also caused by a friend whom wanted to play with my phone and accidentally dropped it when he was passing it back to me.
Nonetheless, it still functions very well and that was why I LOVE LOVE LOVE Nokia phones!!
The only physical defect it has is that the smooth black skin keeps peeling so I decided to bling it:


Blinged Nokia 6131

I have no intention to change my Nokia phone actually...but then smartphones came into play around 2007/2008.
With great deals from telco providers, everyone who is anyone can easily afford one (wow that's a lot of one's).
So..after fiddling around with Babe's BB (iPhone 3Gs), I think I sort of kicked Nokia aside. :P
Now if anyone asks me which smartphone to get, with no doubt I'll tell them: iPHONE!!
I loveeeeee his white 3Gs (I keep telling him it's so feminine because it's white (the word white is before the '3Gs 'and he should *coughsgiveittome*)!!!


Obviously I was just kidding la.
He said he can't afford to give me an Apple just yet (although he won me an iPod (Pink Angel) but but guess what, I have a White Angel now!! (okie you have gotta highlight the space again...)
Will reveal it soon!!

Wow, totally digress from my initial blog objectives.
Anyway, so I bought all the phones (except White Angel) with my very own blood and sweat and not to mention the bill too (although I occasionally asked my mom to reload for me when I'm really broke).
And I'm really very proud of myself!

And as I've said a thousand times before in this blog, I normally shop only when things are on sale.
I don't go about buying an LV bag (although now if you can't afford the bag, you can always go to The LV Boutique which is located near Island Hospital) or an 'inspired' designer bag because I still can't afford one.
The most expensive bag I've gotten for myself was the BUM Equipment handbag which I bought at a 70% discount from almost RM200! *grins*

And all my clothes are not from Topshop, Guess, Levi's etc.
They're just from random exclusive boutiques in Prangin Mall or Queens or Gurney.
I said exclusive because you know la the shops in Prangin, left turn, right turn, every shop will sell the same clothes with different prices. So I normally opt for the ones in the middle atrium.
Less people shop there but their clothes are really great plus they don't come in bulk!
Although it's a bit more pricey but nothing more than RM70.

So yes, there you have it..although I don't think I look/pretend to be rich, at least I try to look the best I can.
Crap, talking about looking the best, I have just foregone my golden chance to becoming one of the faces for a famous skincare brand in Japan and Malaysia, too.
In fact, the reason I joined the contest was to fulfill Babe's wish of having a model gf and I told him if I get shortlisted, it should count as a potential model-to-be gf as well! Hahahahaha.

Which I actually did make it to the Top 41 maybe there were only 41 entries wtf by sending in a photo of myself and a video!
This was the photo I sent:


Obviously wearing a white top was a strategy that works! Hahaha.
Nonetheless, I decided to give up the chance because I didn't wanna screw up my final year paper and project, not to mention having to juggle a job as well.
Sigh, I really looked forward to the casting which is scheduled tomorrow but it's all the way in KL!
Oh well, maybe next time. :(

GOOD LUCK to all the girls out there (not like they're gonna hear me here)!!

Back to work. T___T.

ps: All the best to my friends for their coming papers!
pps: Previous post was deleted because it was written on an impulsive feeling. Didn't mean to hurt anyone.
