My house is fast becoming a rest stop for all scavenging animals looking for food. We occasionally have monkeys happily raiding our rambutan tree along with civet cats and other wild animals. When it's not the rambutan season, they'll also happily raid our kitchen and leave us with a nice poop ON the dining table. Aren't they kind.
Before that, we have birds feasting on our chili and grapes plants, Kingfishers on our fishes (duh), monkeys on our old mango tree and longan tree, which dad nearly wanted to pull his hair out cause the tree was so sickly it only produced a few longans in 10 years. MUAHAHAHHA!
Anyway, dad got angry after the last raid that left poop on our dining table that he went and buy a trap and left it in the kitchen. So ta-daa, we found ourselves a civet cat around midnight. Dad wanted to cage it for a few days to teach it a lesson before letting it go far far away from our house. A few days later, the poor thing looks so miserable that I got into a quarrel with dad about letting it go, in the end, he did, so please don't call the SPCA on us.
A few days later, and another poopie on the floor, dad caught the 2nd civet cat, a much larger one. I don't know what happened to it. But rest assured, it didn't end up on our table for the Reunion dinner.
The last trip down to KL and on the way back to Penang, I stopped by Sunway Pyramid to head over to Etude House. Was on a mission to get something that E wanted. I browse around and I was so tempted to get something, anything! It was my 2nd time in Etude and this time, I didn't want to leave without buying something! I don't need any face base, blushers or lip sticks/ glosses so I went back to my old nasty habit of buying foundation. Just that in this case, it's not really a foundation but rather a BB cream.
The small boxes of moistful and Aqua Sherbet are purchase with purchase (PWP)
It cost about RM69.90 and comes with a soft mini brush and it's only in one colour, which the sales person told me that it'll blend into my skin colour. It looked really tan so I was a little hesitant to buy it but after a while, ah what the heck!
It's only 25ml despite the big packaging and it's supposedly has pretty good coverage, which was why I ended up getting it. It's not really oily and has medium staying powder but I'm loving it!
The coverage was good much to my surprise but it can look a little thick if applied too much so, I start with 'painting' my nose area, forehead and inner cheeks before using the brush to 'drag' out to the other parts covering my entire face. You'll definitely need to apply loose powder after it so I just slap on my Anna Sui since I didn't buy any from Etude.
Would I buy it again? YES YES YES!
The difference between this and SkinFood's Aloe Vera BB is the coverage and also, the SF has a tendency to be oilier towards later of the day. Doesn't cover pimples that well but is good for those who wants to minimize pores and pimple scars.
My Chinese New Year nails. I'm so not loving it. Never realized how long my nails has gotten till I tried doing the french manicure tip, way too much white! I can soon title myself as Queen of all failed experiments and add this one to my growing resume.
Added the 'pearls' out of boredom and discovered how irritating they were. I had to super glue a few of them so they wouldn't run around and whenever I run my hands thru my hair, they sometimes get caught. Ouch! Which them prompt me to apply more top coat so it'll fill the small cracks and ridges.
I can't wait for after new year when I can cut my nails short. That aside, please take note that despite all that, my hands are not 'useless'. People often wondered if I could even do anything with nails this length. Answer is, it's super tough if the nails are fake/acrylic because you're not used to them and it's like they grew overnight and your not sure what to do with them.
If the nails are real (like mine)we would have gotten used to them as they grew, we would have found ways to improvise as we went along. Example, I can no longer type on my laptop properly so I either use the sides of my nails which is pretty comfortable and doesn't bother or slow me down. I cannot switch off my TV or light or press buttons on a lift the normal way so I use my knuckles instead (which I find much more hygienic because I tend to use my fingers to touch my face)
BUT I can still mop floor and do do pretty much everything like normal. I still help mom in the kitchen to slice and dice vegetables and pound chilis to make sambal belacan. My nails are pretty strong so I can also wash dishes and do water related stuffs without problems. Also I can still remove my contact lenses. I do have a problem opening canned drinks though.
How do I know that I won't face problems later when my nails grow longer? I would know cause I've grown my nails way longer than this. It was to an extend that the tips started to curve inwards (claw like) and I couldn't hold a pen without hurting myself.
A colleague of mine gave me a fortune cookie! My first fortune cookie! Wheee! It's a chipped at the sides fortune cookie but nevertheless a fortune cookie! Wheee!
...And it says that I will soon have gold pieces by the bushels! Exactly just like what my other colleagues got. Uh oh, wow...
She popped the entire fortune cookie in her mouth and I was screaming "There's paper in side" and she spit it out and it said the same thing. Potong stim~
Had no idea what bushels means so I had to look it up;
a unit of measurement equal to approximately 36.4 litres in Britain or 35.2 litres in the US:
Uhhhhhhhhhh... okay. *scratch head*
P.S: I'm really liking Warhammer Online :D
