I rather risk puking on our PM's face/ shoe than my precious bag. Silly I know, I just don't wanna be face in a looming possibility of fishing my poor hand phone from a bag full of 'sharkfin soup'. Imagine taking out your credit card/ money at the cashier and she suddenly start sniffing the air for that terrible stench.
UGH! I might just start burning all the money instead or I might just use it to pay parking and infect the entire container of notes in the machine so when the person open the machine to remove the money, he/she will be the only victim to the horrible stench. MUAHAHA! [insert ebil laugh]
Nah, not even going think about it.
I just wanted to say that ...
I HATE Mior Facial Soap or Eumora or whatever you wanna call the bloody damn soap.
Why is that so you might ask? Well for a few bloody good reasons I'll tell you why.
First off, forget the cut throat price but what it did to my skin. I was wondering how the hell my skin gotten this dry when E asked me the million dollar question. She asked if I noticed that our lips gotten more wrinkles and drier after using Mior. It was something I noticed some time ago when I noticed that my normal lip balms did nothing to my of-all-the-sudden super dry lips. E then asked, if I noticed the wrinkles around her eyes. It was then everything clicked into place.
I've only used Mior for about a month or two and I've stopped using it for over two months now and my skin is still dehydrated. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's this, maybe it's that or something else you might be thinking but NOT, I know what made my skin this dry and I did NOT start having dry skin till I used the soap. What the soap does is that it dries up your acne and lighten pigmentation and for those two purpose, it's extremely good because there is result. But at the same time, it dries up other parts of your face and thus giving us premature wrinkles.
My lips used to be something I was proud of because I only had very fine lines on them, nothing like the Grand Canyon or the Mariana trenches* but thanks to Mior, my lips now have deep lines that lip glosses can hardly smooth over and hide. Gee..
And to think those sales person actually said to use the soap twice a day. What would have happen then?
Now I have to spend tons of money to offset what the soap has done to my face. Dang it!
*Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the earth's oceans, and the deepest location of the earth itself. It is 11,033 meters (36,201 feet), meaning you can probably stuff Mount Everest in and still have over 2000 meters ( 7000+ feet) or space left.

Oh yea, CT's the guy on the left.
As you could have seen from E's blog, we went for Mr. Team Leader's Christmas Eve party. It turned our pretty fun. Lots of the usual gambling, endless looped Christmas songs, laughs and at the end of the Christmas Present exchanged, I ended up with CT's gift. Uh.. It was a towel. A blue towel. Which cost RM13.90. Which CT got Cody to get. So uh, yea. Anyway I like it, it's useful at least. Heee~ <3 style="text-align: center;">Ahh the best Christmas pressie yet, a nice picture of E and me. Gotta print this out and blow this into poster size. *Muaks E*
And yay, we managed to meet up with Khy again after so long! I have for some strange reason thought that she was still happily in Australia studying when in fact she has completed her studies and came back - a YEAR ago. Guess my brains are stuck in 2007 time line.
Yet again, picture is stolen without permission from E. Will make it up to her later.

So it finally came. from USA to Singapore and finally to my little house in Penang. A lengthy journey as well as a treacherous one, ah, forgive the drama but I was really worried it got lost in transit but anyway, it arrived a little battered but in one piece.
If you remember that I was badly wanting MAC Skinfinish in Petticoat in my previous post, I FINALLY GOT IT! Wheee! The colour is as they said, fantastic! I'm thankful that after ordering and all, the colours doesn't look as if someone smacked me or if if I fell into someone's birthday cake filled with pink icing. It came off as a natural flushed look on me. And for backup, I ordered another extra!
I also ended up getting the MAC Limited Edition Basic Adoring Carmine Brushes set. I was wanting the Basic Face set but the person got my orders mixed up and I ended up with brushes I wasn't too crazy about.
It wasn't done nicely as you can see all the bubbled on nails. That's from turning the fan on full blast while painting my nails. Always always switch off your fan when painting your nails or bubbles will appear. I've known this fact for a long time but since it was just an experiment, I thought "Ah, what the hell"
Oh and on last Saturday night, at roughly about 5 in the morning, a thief broke into our house - also yet again. This time, he raided both my sister's and my car before taking off when my dad woke up. *sigh* My car was in a complete mess!
I wasn't the last person to use the car so I had went to sleep without locking the doors. I was in and out of sleep having weird nightmares when I head my dad shouted and then a bang on our metal fencing. I woke up and went out, the light were all on and from previous experience I pretty much guess what had happend.
I saw my car in a utter mess and I thought to myself, "*&^%$#@! AGAIN!" My dad asked me what I lost and I took one look at my car and saw that my sunglasses than Ian bought for me some time ago wasn't there. I was seething in anger. I cannot drive without my sunglasses as my eyes are sensitive to sun light. I not only squint terribly in the sun but I also start sneezing.
My dad took a quick look and after a few minutes waved my half buried sun glasses in my face, a whole entire chorus of angels sang "Hallelujah" on the back of my head. I was hopping around happily thanking God that the idiotic, I-hope-he-gets-his-hands-chopped-off thief didn't take it.
It was then my mom pointed at my make up bag on top of my father's car did I really literally wanted to kneel down and Thank God that the idiotic, I-hope-he-gets-his-hands-chopped-off thief didn't manage to take my make up bag away! He has specifically set the bag aside and had to take off without it when my dad woke up.
I left the make up bag under my passenger side seat because it was a little crampy in my bag and had forgotten to take it out after reaching home. It had my MAC Limited Edition mineralize skinfinish along with my newly bought Anna Sui rouge tint, Coastalscents angled brush, Lip brush from Elizabeth Arden and so forth. I would have really kill the idiot if he took them away and I managed to kill him. I'll suffocate him by shoving my tampons from the make up bag up his nostrils and strangled him to death with my bare hands. Not to mention, my sis got the Tokidoki make up bag for me from Singapore.
So in the end, he took two of my sister's sunglasses and my dad's binoculars. Please don't ask me what the heck is the binoculars doing in my car cause I don't know. Sis was very upset. The sunglasses didn't cost alot but she had really liked them, not to mentioned she went to the shop to get them again but they were already sold out so I feel really bad for her on her behalf. *sigh*
The only good thing that came out of all this is that mom has finally agreed to let me get a dog from SPCA! YAY!
Why SPCA? I do not agree to buying pedigreed pooches. It's a weird reason but I've always loved those 'garden retrievers' aka mutts.
Easy to care for, loyal and a little crazy, how can I not love them? :D

a mental illness which causes the sufferer to do something repeatedly for no reason
I do sometimes wonder if I have a little of OCD just as well. I'm not posting all these pictures to make anyone feel anything, it's merely a reminder to myself of the things I already have. Sometimes in my quest for neatness, I stuff everything into tins and boxes - outta sight outta mind. But the problem starts when I can never remember what is it that I have and the problem with me is that, if i don't see it, I don't have it, so I BUY!
Then one fine day, I clean up my room and discover that I have a total of 50+ lip glosses and a few balms all still happily in my drawers and have more than 85% left. That's when I slap myself on the forehead and wonder WHY?
Yea sure, 50+ lip glosses actually isn't alot at all compared to some people who owns them by the bulk. But for someone like me whose actually grew up being thrifty, I feel like crying, what on earth was I thinking?
But then again, there are some that are gifts from loved ones and also some free gifts ones. Hee!
20+ lipglosses from various brands such as Elizabeth Arden, Crabtree & Evelyn, Paul & Joe and others are in hiding, someone smack me please!
I've finally used the mascara again after my Kate Volume Mascara finished and here it is. All 2 coats of it. If you're curious about my review on it, just search it up on the search box.
If you're wondering why the front of my lashes looks short. It's not short, it's just facing downwards and giving the odd appearence of it being short. I have a problem with my Stage Eye Lash Curler which I bought from Queensbay Mall for RM35. Lets just say the tester was better than the actual stuff.
I found that it did not fit my eye shape and I have to press hard into my eyes just to get to the little nooks and corners. It would probably be a good fit if you have slightly deep set eyes but for us chinese, it's gonna be tough. But it also depends on person to person and I don't speak for all. So feel free to stick to your Shu Uemura, Shiseido, MUFE or Anna Sui eye lash curler or whatever fits you best. I regretted buying mine to say the least.
For the stuffs that I absolutely did not regret buying would be the Crabtree & Evelyn La Source set (RM180+) that comes with a hand lotion, hand wash, hand cream, a bar of soap and a tote bag which I love!
I actually bought the entire set solely because I wanted the bag. How lame am I? I didn't like the La Source range as much as I liked Rosewater or the Lavendar range but after using the La Source hand lotion, I've found my HOLY GRAIL lotion!!!!!
But serious shit, the La Source lotion is the BEST lotion I've ever used. Of course there might be better ones out there but as far as I've used, forget Johnson & Johnson, forget Loreal, forget Palmers BUY La Source! It's a little pricy at RM75 for 200ml but it's worth every single penny. Thanks E!
Another thing I didn't regret buying (okay it was a gift and I didn't actually pay for it) was ta-daa, a Gucci bag! *hops around happily* I love it! I'm really not the type of girls that's into branded this and branded that. I find it a little silly, it's just that I love the fact that with branded bags, the quality is always there and the best part is that you can use it for years and years to come. I'm the sentimental kind of person, I appreciate and love everything that I've ever owned and I find it very hard to get rid of old, torn, stained, whatever bags. So at the very least if there was ever a problem with the handle with my Burberry or Gucci, it's still replaceable and fixable. So I don't have to throw out my old bags that often now that I can get them fixed.
Personally I would never buy any branded shoes like LV, Coach, Burberry shoes or anything even if I ever have a million bucks. I walk alot and I step over anything and everything that's in my way. A puddle? No problem. I'm embarrassed to say but I have literally walked into ditches (those big longkangs) before during a heavy rainfall ( the ditch was clogged up and due to the heavy downpour, I failed to see the ditch and walked into it. MUAHAHA!) and it really didn't bother me when my entire shoes were soaked wet. Sad to say, shoes is one of the things I never really take care of. *sigh*
Oh I recently found a small stall in Gurney Plaza selling cheap OPI imitation nail colour. I thought it was OPI and it got me attracted, on a closer look, it was called CALAR, sounds like someone either cannot spell or it's a way some people pronounce the word color. So that aside, the sales assistant was a very chatty young man, I wasn't interested in buying but he seemed so nice so I ended up buying some. T.T
I'm so naive and easily conned. But it wasn't expensive at all much to my surprise. It was only RM4 per bottle and RM10 for 3 bottles! O.o
Right pic: comparison between OPI and CALAR
Anyway the above picture is OPI's INdia-Mood for love.
My first Biotherm product. I've never used any of their stuffs before this and so this is new to me, bought it because my skin was so dehydrated it was starting to peel as well and this is not normal for my skin. It's been going on for a month or so and I know I needed help. Decided to try the smaller 30ml bottle and see if I break out of anything and thankfully I didn't. After about 2 weeks, I received some feedbacks that my skin has gotten better. No longer that dehydrated, still is but not that bad so I'm happy. Lets see how it goes long term.
Polystation? Sunbucks? The logo is kinda scary looking actually...
I can't read chinese so I can't tell what the hell is the red colour liquid but damn, not something I wanna go near. Click on the pic for a bigger picture. Anyone can tell me what the hell is it?
The 'Nike' shoe one gave me the best laugh. It crack me up seeing how the 'Nike' words got imprinted on the guys foot at the end.
Oh hell, this is so 'chinese' style. [insert crazed laughter] I love the sandwich picture. If I were to judge purely on the package [pic 1] I would have bought the sandwich but to open it up and find how little ingredients in it... potong stim

Ahhh, Twilight, the new highly anticipated movie starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
Seriously, what do I have to say after watching it? Watch it for the cute guy and... oh sorry there is no 'and'. Watch it for the cute guy. End of story. Period.
I'm sad to say that I didn't read the book, afterall there are tons of books about vampires falling in love with humans, examples books from L.J Smith's Night World, my favourite book in the whole world when I was 13 so it didn't strike me as a particularly interesting book but since it became a movie, it has to be interesting, right?
Let me just say this, the storyline for Twilight can make me cry. Cry for the lack of storyline. Watching the movie made me curious about the book itself. Is the book equally as corny, predictable and lame apart from the descriptions of the oh-so-gorgeous guys and gals?
Mr. Eye-candy, Edward Cullen, made watching the lame movie a little more bearable. I'm smitten by his good looks. He looks like a cross breed between Hugh Jackman and Luke Perry. Cupid struck, it never happen before and this is a first but wow, he sure looks damned good as Edward. Apart from his occasional make up which makes his face far whiter than his neck, too red lips and too much blusher parts, his face strangely reminds me of some Grecian god. Gorgeous.
The only problem is that I dislike his 'normal' face. *scratch head* Confused? It's just that I googled and found his picture from other movies as well as model pictures and went, 'Bleh'. But when he's Edward Cullen, I can't get enough of him!
I can't exactly say the same for the main actress unfortunately. From the poster above, I was excited when I saw a good looking guy and an attractive main actress, but seeing the main actress in the movie was a little disappointing. There's nothing wrong with her acting, for a 18 year old, it was goooood but I found her 'bunny' teeth a little distracting. If you watch the movie, her lips are mostly apart and all that I see is her two white little bunny teeth. But it could just be me. *shrugs*
So all in all, watch it for the gorgeous Edward Cullen. Don't watch it for the storyline.
Rating: 05/10 - The 5 is purely for watching Edward Cullen.
Another show I watch on the weekend was Kinta.
A Malaysian made show starring Robin Ho, Shawn Lee, David Bao, Micheal Chin and etc. I'm sorry but there's quite a bit of names. It caught our attention thanks to the fact that most of them were actually real martial artist. As in they really know how to whoop your ass type.
C.L Hor had proudly proclaimed that the story would be about the history of the Malaysian Chinese – how they came here, how they moved on from the tin mines and continued living in this country after 1881. The martial arts and action, in his own words, were “merely there to increase the entertainment value of the movie”
Later, it was noted that they wanted to showcase the film to international audience and thus;
“If you make a Hollywood movie, the executive producer represents the investors, and he has the say. I definitely have influence, but my hands are tied because I have to fulfil the investor’s wishes.”
As for the story (or what was left of it), Hor also had to throw out a lot of the plot to accommodate the 90-minute limit. In fact, by the time the final cut was done, his noble intentions to “show people outside Malaysia the roots of the Malaysian Chinese” had been whittled down to a mere action film about four brothers seeking revenge. - The Star
In other words, the movie or what's really left of it ended up sucking chicken ass. It really was that bad. It starts by introducing the main heroes, all looking tough and constipated. Then how it all began, the miners working hard and all. Quarterway through the film, you'll feel like slapping your forehead of paying RM10 to watch his film. Halfway through, you'll wish it would just end already. End of the movie, you're left with your mouth open, confused, wondering why has the film ended so abruptly. It started with so much hope. Just like our office sales report.
There were too many waste of time flashbacks and nothing connected. It's starts with one story, continues with another, then another and another and then the ending in which there's too many loopholes and left me so confused. Also why was the dancing scene so long? It just shows some skimpy girls dancing seductively and it lasted for a good couple of minute. Huh? If they had to edit so much why didn't they cut the stupid dancing shorter and try to make more sense to the already senseless film?
In the end, the film left me with more questions than answers and there wasn't much on how the chinese came to Malaya but more on 3 brother beating the shit out of each other for some unknown reason/ vague reason.
Also the actress used to play Dan Dan looked really old compared to Tiger. Her character strikes me as someone pretty blur. Maybe it's the lack of lines but I enjoyed watching her stepmother more than I enjoyed watching her. She's not attractive in any way and her character is boring and has very little dialogue. Hell, I'm not even sure what is she doing there other than to kiss Tiger and shout his name at the very end to encourage him on. At least that's how I saw her. Bleh!
"Well, if the film is a success, he might just get the chance to improve on the movie, and perhaps tie up those dastardly loose ends with a prequel and a sequel in the future" - The Star
Whether or not there is a prequel, sequel or whatever, you can bet your pretty ass that I'm not wasting another RM10 on it. Sheesh. I want a refund or compensation for having to waste my 2 hours or whatever watching crap like that.
How it all ends, via WWF style cage
Rating 03/10 - The only I enjoyed was watching David Bao's taichi fighting moves, one word, smooth! Can be expected considering that he IS the World Champion Taichi performer.
