Been down sick with viral infection - AGAIN! And didn't take any MC and went on working since there was too many work to do. My brain has been exhausted and I've on a short memory status. Been forgetting things like an old lady.
There's a lady (late thirties) who's quite well respected in my workplace that bothers me a little. Nothing all too serious but it seems that she often make subtle hints to me and everyone how she doesn't approve of me or the way I look or behave. I don't expect to go anywhere and win a bloody popularity contest here. All I want to do is get along with everyone, get our job done and go home.
The first few months of working in my new job; she started hinting to me how I should not act fake and how she and her husband (she married early) are comfortable with each other and how not fake they are.
Problem is, I am who I am. Like I said, I'm not here to win a popularity contest, there's no reason for me or anyone for that matter (in my opinion) to act fake. This is me. I talk in a girlish voice, I grin and tell stupid jokes, I nod my head respectfully and smile even when I'm scolded etc.
Elisa did mention that people who doesn't know me will cleverly 'assume' that I act fake. People who's with me for a while, knows that that is just me. Thinking that time will prove her wrong eventually, I let this comment slip.
How long can a fake person keep up in a relationship? I'm curious. If I were that horribly fake and manage to keep it up for 13 months and see my bf everyday, I deserve an Oscar!!
The face. In this case, MY face. People take one look at me and also assumes that they know me their entire lifetime and how they don't need to even talk to me to know me. They assume that I do not know any hardship, is unable to handle anything important, can't work, can't hold a job for 6 months, a flower pot. Will wilt under sun, will never eat in hawker centres and only eats expensive food stuff and all, can't hold secrets, gossipy. It's incredible how long the list goes.
I admit I'm not perfect. I'm far from it. I have a list of faults probably that long too but it's none of the above. I had live by myself in a strange place with no fan, no lights, no furniture eating nothing by instant noodles for dinner every night for 2 months. I have been thru shit and more, I can hold a job for 6 months and more. I like umbrellas because I have pigmentation problem, I dislike gossip, I'm a fantastic secret holder. I eat anywhere and almost anything.
But anyway, as of late, she's hinting to me how she disapproves of the way I look. In her words, she's okay with girls dressing sexy but doesn't approve of things like colouring the hair. How she like au natural. Good for her. Also if my hair was under a scarf, I wouldn't bother to do anything to it too.
I don't wear sexy but I consistently colour my hair, recently hair my eyebrows embroidered, wear make up (mascara and occasionally falsies) and in other words - Look fake.
She never says anything like that to my other colleague that colours their hair in light browns and stuffs. Weird..
Ta daaaa, move over Barbie! I'm here to stay!
Now all I need is double eyelids, a boob job, some lip fillers, blond hair, blue contacts and I'm all set. I don't know about you guys, but I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of 550cc for my boobies...
Now to get my Ken, my pink convertible, my pink palace and the RM10k needed for my boob job...

There are lots of time when people complained about things going missing from parcels or missing parcels. That's one reason I never trusted our own postal services. The shipping price just went up and yet the service is still as bad. I never understood why all the people at the post office and immigration office where we get our passports all look and act constipated.
But in the end, The parcel took nearly 1 1/2 months to arrive. It arrived! It's here! You hear that Bunny?! It came! After a round the world trip, it finally reached me!
The gifts were great and much loved. My eyes bulged from all the items. Like whoaa, that's hell of alot of items. I know it was shameless but I wore the beautiful ring, shoved in under JH's nose and said loudly, 'Look, someone actually bought me a ring..'
Lip balms!!! Lip smackers in two of my all time favourite flavours! Bunny, you make me wanna run around in circles. :D
I noted that you mentioned hand cream in your letter but when I opened the package, there was no handcream found. I wonder if the Customs officers thought that the hand cream was used for making bombs and promptly confiscated it away.. *sniff sniff*
* If you don't know what eyebrow embroidery is; It's somewhat similar to tattoo but it's temporary and the needle does not go in that deep. The super dark, wide brows will only last for a week before it peels off and reveals a much softer and smaller eyebrow underneath. It's good for people like me who's born with little/ patchy eyebrows.
After 3 days, snot cream runs out and it's time to switch to a clear cream
Since Felicia, my beautician upgraded her anesthetic cream, this round of "poking" didn't hurt at all. Whee! The hurt came later instead. Back then, I wasn't working and one week passed by fast and without much incident. This time, I was working and I scared lots of people shitless in my workplace. They all stared.
The thing about Malaysian is that we hardly bother to ask. If we don't understand something, we keep quiet and try to find out ourselves. In this case, they saw, they laughed, they thought I had a galactic battle with my eyebrow pencil - and lost. End of story. *sigh* I don't blame them since if we asked, we might be thought of as nosy.
I never did mind being called nosy. I don't butt into personal things but I've always been curious and I live by the motto, 'If you don't know - ASK!' I insist on holding a mirror when doing my facials and wants to be told what's going on and all. Same thing when I got to the dentist and so forth XD
So anyway, everywhere I went, people talked to my eyebrows. Yup, you read right. They talked to my eyebrows. They didn't look at me or my eyes but instead at my eyebrows which was quite funny. Some girls gets guys talking to their chest/boobies. I get them talking to my eyebrows.
Of course, there was comments such as, 'Whoaa..' from complete strangers while passing by or the stupid (don't mind me) aunty where we usually have our lunch which told her worker to "look for the lady with the thick thick make up" Thick thick here is our usual way of emphasizing something. It's like the word, 'very'. It hurts cause I was only using sunblock and a light powder. *sobs loudly*
After the 4th day, I decided to put on my devil-may-care attitude. I walked about to hotels, shopping malls with my gruesome eyebrows. Hah! Enjoy it, you won't be seeing it for the next 2 years. After one week, the dark brown will all peel off and underneath is the 'real' colour.
Anyway I realized with natural falsies, it makes the eyebrows less conspicuous, it might just be me though.
Staying at home, I've taken up a hobby. After much calculations, I knew I wasn't going to be able to afford Christmas presents for friends this year so the next best thing was to make some stuffs as gifts.
The first few tries ended with JH telling me, 'I suggest you don't give them to your friends..' They were awful alright. I found some cookie cutter and suddenly everything became much easier. The air-clay I used was too fragile to be rolled into roses or any fancy shapes. They were tough to work with. In the end, some of the things I made was a combi of both clay and air-clay. Air clays were great "creams" and toppings such as strawberry or cherries. Roses and hearts are better off made with clay.

Been getting shit flung at me left and right. *sniff* and I dyed my hair the wrong colour! STBM of the highest degree. I wanted violet, I got red. The more washes, the lighter it gets. Am I panicking? You bet your pretty ass I am.
Well another week, another wedding. Last week of October was Boonifer's,one week later, Aaron & Becky's. I've empty out my coffers and MAC's Tartan Collection launched. Was waiting for this collection for some time. Something from MAC to look forward to. In the end, I didn't even dared to walk pass the counters. They probably sold out everything I want by now anyway. Or atleast I'm hoping. I was a little sad though since I had really wanted some of the items.
Was stuck in the toilet when the bride threw the bouquet. Guess who caught it? None other than Pinky Doodle Doo!!!
Pinky has a goofy grin here but she looked really nice that nigh :D
Anyway, I seriously need to start looking for part time job or something. I've been thinking about getting a part time job lately but I can't figure out for the life of me, what kind. To answer frankly, I don't know what my talents are. I usually just tell people I have none. XD
Talking about not buying MAC Tartan Collection, I did buy some make up lately though. A few weeks ago, I got to help my manager to do some make up for a photoshoot for a colleague. One of them was an Indian lady.
Since we're no professionals (my manager recently got her make up cert but its for fun) we didn't have the correct foundation shades so we used whatever we have. It bothered me alot when I saw the colour of her foundation and powder. She was using the same colour as my mom or something. Imagine using 10 shades to fair. I started looking around for darker foundations after that just in case something like that ever came up again - highly unlike but still...
The foundations were all just too expensive for me to even buy a few shades, a few weeks later I saw the 15 colour concealer palette. I knew I could use the concealer as a foundation by mixing it with more moisturiser, that would solve my problem!
Problem was that the palette was selling for RM60+, too expensive. Did more searching, found another for RM50, then Rm40. How odd, they all sell the same damn thing for different prices. but one lucky search on ebay, I found one for USD0.99cents!! But shipping was USD5.90 but even then, it was alright! Wheeeeeee! Now to find some guinea pigs!
The texture is okay, creamy but a little sheer for me. Of course, I am comparing it to my HG MUFE camouflage concealer. It's one concealer that covers all imperfections and I have alot of that, nyahahaha. Would say sheer to medium coverage - build able.
JH got mad when he knew I bought this. I can't blame him but it was the last one and it was absolutely gorgeous - on me :D
Watsons RM39.90. Kiss me Heavy Rotation enamel gloss in Whity Pink 02. Ahh me new love love. I've been searching high and low for the perfect nude shade for me and I finally found it!
*does the rabbit dance*

GameForge decided to have a Halloween party cum first year anniversary a few days earlier and there was a costume contest as well, best dressed male and female walks away with RM50. Sure, it might not sound alot but to a poor person like me, it was enough to make my eyes sparkle. (In case you're wondering why I'm consistently broke; I'm still paying my iLasik surgery and my tickets to Hong Kong and I got 3 wedding dinners in October, November and December)
On the day itself and just a few hours to the party, I still haven't decided on what to wear. Out of idea, started whinning to JH and we started going thru any ideas at all. A marionette? (Didn't have any cute fluffy dresses) A nurse? (Wanted to borrow Elisa's costume but she was working) A ganguro? (Uhh.. in public with my face looking like that? No way, Jose) A witch? (Boring, no idea where my damned hat went) A maid? (Last year's costume)
If there's one thing I dislike about Penang is that there isn't any costume shops that we can rent outfits from or even a costume shop. ARGH! It's either you get creative or go Toys R Us and get those fluffy sparkly cutsey wings . Hell, if those fluffy sparkly cutsey wings that comes with a size 2 shoes and tiara can fit me, I'll buy it! Unfortunately for me, my feet is a good size 6 and the wings are for kids. I'll look like a hippopotamus with sparkly butterfly wings.
Out of ideas, I put on my last year's maid's costume, hoping to put a fresh twist to it, maybe a blond wig or something and black leggings. Yes, I'm not the most creative person around. Was a little depressed since I really wanted the money. Oops, did my greediness shined through..
Just for a laugh, I put on my 'cowboy' hat and JH commented how it actually fit the costume, so that was it, I became a weird gothic cowgirl or something.. *sigh*
These shots are all candid so obviously I'll look a little goofy in some. Wish I had a little warning in some but luckily no shots of me scratching my ass or digging my nose :D
Not that I was doing those..
JH decided to ignore me and played Warhammer 40k instead. Me on the other hand, spilled beer on model terrains, tried chopping up the models and finally decided to go pull off my lower eyelashes cause they were damned annoying.
End of party, round up friends to threaten GameGorge's GM into giving me the money. And he really hands them over. Yay! I.R.RM50 richer!
To be truthful, I only won cause I was the only idiot who dress up. Seriously. Last year there was a bunch of people dressing up and all but this year, the clubhouse guys were all busy getting drunk at a bachelor party that hardly anyone came. Sad.
I really felt like a big fat idiot. My original costume was actually underneath my shirt but since no one bothered, I didn't even remove my shirt.
Oh well, I'm a slightly richer idiot atleast. Hee heee!
Luckily I remembered to put on my contacts before we left. It's almost a month and I've only wore it once. Gotta make my money's worth.
