We'll be visiting only Tokyo and Hakuba - a ski resort (No snow yet though just to have a look around) will come back with the pictures then. Again, I am bringing along a limited amount of money, so let's see how I stretch it this time around since part of Sir Terrible Memory's birthday present this year is all the Choco Cro he can eat.

The Face Shop GR501
Games Workshop Emperor's Children (Darker Pink)
Games Workshop Changeling Pink (Light Pink)
Games Workshop Goblin Green + White (leaves)
9ml - I'll be using it for years and years to come...
Cost me a total of RM 9.50 ( I jokingly ask the shop keeper for discount and without a pause he told me RM 9.50 down from RM 9.90) So I happily paid and left.
Pros: It's very black, cheap, comes off easily with oil base make up removers.
Cons: No ingredients listed, stings bloody hell if you get it in your eyes, takes a very long time to dry.Will smear badly if you rub your eyes.
Note the takes a long time to dry cause it really does. So far, I only use it on weekends when I have plenty of time to let it dry. Days I don't have to rush for work or rush off somewhere. So far so good.
I have never bought any nail polish from Skin Food since I think they are a little pricy but the quality turned out pretty nice. In fact, much nicer than TFS. Application was smooth and easy and this colour thankfully wasn't streaky or anything.
Will consider this brand when buying nail colours in the future.

I started blogging since 2008 and 4 years later I am feeling really lazy. I sit and wonder if I should even keep this going. In the end, I kept on blogging.
I have an embarrassing confession. A while ago, Caryn from Biore message me on my email saying that she has left the company and introduced to me her new colleague. I didnt see her email till a few weeks later. By that time when I emailed the new girl, I think the new girl must have left too since my emails bounced back undelivered.
In the email, the new girl asked if I could ask the winners of my Biore giveaways their home addresses. Something I felt uncomfortable in doing. I don't want to give my readers the wrong impression since home addresses can be something private. In the end, my emails never got thru.
For those that never got an email or your gift from Biore, I sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.
I bought no new cosmetics and instead spent most of my money on OPI and China Glaze nail polish. Sir Stingy will freak if he only knew the exact amount.
OPI in Malaysia cost a whooping RM60 (US$18~20) each and buying online is much cheaper for us. Online it cost us half the price.
Hmm, I'm a big sucker for the jelly finish. It's so shiny and glossy. I find them irresistible. Big Hair Big Nails is a coral-ish red despite some online swatches showing them pink-ish.
A super sheer pink that would have been great for french manicures. Also a jelly finish. I trim my nails every single week so I won't be having a chance to paint french anytime soon.
Tried doing a duplicate of the heart on my right thumb and it came our disfigured. Filled in the heart to make it less disfigured :P
Not perfect but it wasnt too bad for a first try, right? RIGHT???
I used disposable nail brushes I found in Daiso. Yes, I love Daiso, 100Yen shop and whatever other Dollar shops out there.
The brushes were slightly stiff and made controlling the brush a dream for drawing art on the nails and doing strokes and all. Unfortunately the brush "buka bunga" or "open flower" on me before I could finish my right hand which I painted last.
Other than that
Don't ask. All I can say is that the bottom cracked. I had to transfer it out to a separate bottle. No surgical knife. Cleaver in kitchen. Went flying. Mess.
This started a make up blog, 4 years later, I ended up using less and less make up.
P.s: NH Collagen Drink can be bought in Watsons and most pharmacies. Watson sells them for around RM160+ and you can get them in the pharmacies for only RM135

NOTD - Pink with glitter and diamante
Oh! I forgot, I officially became 28 on July 10 this year. Wheee! Went to work as usual and came back home to sulk since Sir Terrible Memory was in Japan on a family holiday. Yes, the lucky boy, got to go Japan again so soon after our last trip. An all expense paid trip inclusive of shopping money. (WTF!!)
I had sleepless nights for the duration of his Japan trip and even had dark eye circles which is rare for me. Luckily a few days of good sleep afterward got rid of it in a jiffy.
These cupcakes were given to us (me and my sister) from our lunch mate who coincidentally birthday fell a day before mine.
On the 10th, the people in the department I am sitting in banded together to throw me a surprise party. Instead of a cake, they got little cupcakes with everything they knew I love, Chanel hand bag, Chanel lipstick, shoes, dresses etc. made from sugar fondant.
I was really touched, I ended up crying. I love them to bits but didn't expect anything from them. I would have been happy to just receive the cupcakes.
Later, my colleagues from my department threw another surprise party for me after sending me on a wild goose chase.
Too many cakes in too short a period caused me to put on so much weight I couldn't buckle my jeans anymore. So to end the story, I am now on a diet eating carrot sticks and celery. I am not happy...
P.s: If you are confused, let's just say I work in XX dept. but sits in YY dept, has transferred to VV dept. but still does a bit of XX dept. work while still sitting in YY dept. There!
Still no ring from Sir Terrible Memory but Pinky Doodle Doo gave me four! Hah! Thanks, Pinky Doodle Doo. So far, I have received one from Bunny, four from Pinky and zero from Sir Terrible Memory *waves fist* I'm keeping tabs!
So how's my birthday look?
Sir Terrible Memory returned from Japan a day after my birthday and he bought me Hello Kitty stuffs and a Starbucks tumbler as peace offering, Yay!
I was kinda hoping for the Cherry Blossoms ones but I guess they didn't have that.
Oh happiness! A Swarovski Hello Kitty pen filled with 150 Swarvoski crystals.
A Hello Kitty Eco bag, chocolate biscuits and tissue papers (lol)

I squeezed the usual amount (compared to other lip glosses) out and applied it to my lips, I had the weirdest pale orange-y shiny lips ever.
While some say the OCC lip tars last for hours and hours, I must be doing something wrong cause mine doesn't last at all. 2 hours or less max and if I don't reapply, I have a weird outer ring on my lips which is not flattering.
Oh well, it's still a very pretty colour and I can't wait to get my hands on other colours and mix them myself.
While shopping in Zara in Japan, I saw this Japanese lady having the bling-est gold nails I have ever seen in my life. Under the soft light of the shop, her nails sparkled and drove me crazy.
I used Etude House Gold BR003 as a base then I layered it with Winmax Pedicure Nail Enamal (gold flakes) which I got for RM5 in Daiso.
I think it took me roughly 6 layers of the Winmax gold flakes to cover the entire nail. My mistake was that I didn't wait for the layers to dry. By the 2nd layer I got lazy and that was my downfall. It look a veryyy long time to dry and I kept messing it up.
Up close, it looks messy but from far, it was great. It sure got my a lot of compliments. HA-HA! *puffs out chest for no apparent reason*
Right after I posted up the Inspired Look: Atelier Maquillage I could help but notice my "saggy" cheeks. It bothered me for a while and I wasn't sure what I could do about it besides messaging it and using firming creams. I have a fear of all the 'firming, anti-aging' creams because they tend to be rich and break me out. So it was between having loads of pimples or saggy cheeks. ARGH!
A colleague recommended me NH Colla Plus Collagen drink, at wits end I decided to give it a try. My colleague mentioned that I should buy it in pharmacies because it was selling at RM135 versus Watsons's RM164 for a month's supply.
After about 2 weeks, I started seeing improvement to my skin. My pores started shrinking and my skin firmed up.
Boy, was I happy. I'm now on my 2nd box and recommended it to my mom. I was shocked when my mom, halfway through her box has started seeing improvement as well. her frown line is less obvious and her pores has shrunk.
Definitely recommended for anyone who's interested in collagen drinks.
* I am not paid or sponsored by the company in any way. I bought all 3 boxes with my own hard earned money.

Saw this design on Youtube and thought it was just so pretty. It seems pretty simple too, a dot her, a dot there, nothing that requires a rocket scientist. Which is a good thing since I definitely ain't one.
I'm not too sure how well it turned out but I sorta liked it. White has always been a nice base to use for any designs but I hate using white. It's hard to get it even and some brands - needs plenty of coats to get it opaque.
An ex-colleague of mine informed me that it was Etude House's 4th year Anniversary - that means sales!! I rushed over as I have been eye-ing their eyeliner for a while now. I saw my ex-colleague using it and she never seem to smudge.
So how was it? Does it last? Does it smudge? Does it go MIA after 2 hours?
Well, you need about 2 application to get a full even coverage and after that, it last for a good 12 hours without smudging. Seriously.
What if you sweat?
It remains as it is. It does not run. How sure am I? I ran up the stairs to the 5th floor (there is no lift!) a total of 3 times and ran from building to building, sweated like a mad woman and nothing moved. I was wayyyy impressed.
For something that is that cheap, I'm really impressed and this is something that I will definitely rebuy.
