I miss the feeling of being loved, being in love.
What is love?
I miss the excitement of seeing the one I love.

I want to do this all over again...with you.

breakfast on sundays...waffles with strawberries n whipped cream
outdoor activities...walk in the park with the dog
going to the bookstore...to read books
going to the cafe...for a cup of nice hot chai

do u know what i want?


it's been a while

It's been a while since I blogged. A lot has been going on, vacation to Taiwan, school...decisions, changes with life...


Starbucks for u!

Enjoy!! and u are very welcome!


Spot the difference

What's new? What's new???

Been trying to follow the trend...CIRCLE lens!!! I think the one I have is DALI BROWN, it matched my natural brown color perfectly! My friends cant even tell.
I think there is a sale going on at circlelens2u.com. I am reserving my dough to purchase them at Taiwan. I heard I can get them with astigmatism prescribed ones at a cheaper price no doubt. Whooo I cant wait! I would be more than happy to help any US bloggers out there to get them at a cheaper price compared to the website. Leave me a msg and we can work something out. Please keep in mind that I am going to Taiwan August 2nd till 16th, so it wont be mailed out till after 16th.

I will be taking my GRE tomorrow at noon....FUG!!! I hope I get a good score so I dont have to retake it for the score I want. Shiettt! Wish me luck girls....


back to the 70s

Went to my man's company party last nite, the theme was 70s disco ball. It was extremely fun, lots of food and alcohol involved, enough said.

Have been pretty busy with class and recovering from my week long flu. I am preparing for my GRE exam which is next Thurs...flippin out....ergh, i hate exams like that. Hopefully, Ill be back with good news.

My dear friend Huihui gave birth to a baby boi on the 12th...very happy for her. She's been longing for her tummy to pop...

let the pics do the talking...



Sheesh...its been a while aye? LOTSA updates!!!
Was back home at NY for 2 wks, not much shopping, but we did do tons of antiques and furniture shopping which was a lotta fun. I managed to pick on of the furnitures for the new place...HAH!
Spent my birthday with my family, we ate at a brazilian restaurant a different one this time, not as good as the first one we went too.

I've been using the bb cream MISSHA shiny since I received it. I see a huge difference in my skin since i've been using bb cream makeup. SCINIC, MISSHA and THE FACE SHOP feels really light on my face, just like i have no makeup on. Even my mom thought i didnt have makeup on. When taking pictures, definitely no two tone differences on my face and neck. Have you guys picked up bb creams today???

New school semester = new phone!! LG EnV

Happy birthday to me!!!!

Also, my dad gave me a new camera and a new watch...

Once i figure out how to upload pics from my camera to the mac, Ill definitely post pics of my bag collection. U girls would be amazed on how addicted i am....hehehe


Home in NY

Home in NY, will be back after 2 wks!



*Warning* this video contains distressing and upsetting footage of animal abuse and neglect and should be viewed with caution.

I like lots of people thought that a cute puppy dog in a shopping mall window or pet store was just that, cute innocent free and ready to take home with everyone happy and no problems at all.

But what I didn't know was how that beautiful puppy came to be there in the first place.

As with so many things in life, things are often deliberately hidden or tried to be kept as quiet as possible as so not to get people to interfere with injustices perpetrated against both animals and people. Puppy Mills are one of those things.

Puppy Mills are facilities where dogs are specifically used to breed 'puppies' for that pet shop window where thy look so cute innocent and sweet, which they very much are. As pointed out and shown in this video, dogs are completely and unforgivably subjected to horrible conditions, unacceptable living conditions, and just horrific and disgusting treatment to keep pet store owners and individual dog sellers in business.

Just as Charlize says in this video, for every dog purchased from a pet store that has unfortunately and most likely come from a Puppy Mill, there's a beautiful dog just waiting with time desperately ticking away in an a adoption centre; who all it wants, is just to be loved by a kind caring family and be a loyal friend for life.

So please think twice about purchasing a new puppy dog from a pet store, and please consider adoption as the #1 option for a new wonderful beautiful and awesome dog for you family; and together we can help end these unforgivable crimes and make the world a better place for both animals and people.

when stressed hits.....

First, I was planning on just getting the SKIN79 Hologram pearl gold compact, but softpeachy was out. As you know, Ill be going back home to NY and my compact was running kinda low, I figured HECK why not get a couple more just to stock up for summer as well as for my trip to TW in August. As I was looking around, yes...looking as in browsing, an image floated in my mind, triggering it humming...'try skinfood...try skinfood'. So what did dear Meo do? Began going on youtube.com searching for the TW show that introduced Skinfood makeup...getting on forums to read whats good and whats not. My conclusion after that is, since my skin type differs in winter and in summer, i figured ill try all three of them to see which suits me better for which seasons...smart thinking aye?? Yep...gotta have all three, i can always mix it up and use it together right? All these 3 diff bb cream has its own functions, however one doesnt have SPF in it...I have yet to try these on my face...will update!

OOo..yes the compact...so then, back to browsing for my compact...gosh dang it...they didnt have Skin79 hologram anymore....ERGHHHHHH....so i tot...
so, my other find was this, and it worked just like the hologram gold as it has crushed pearls in the compact, giving a dewy look as well as a very soft texture...so in love with it...it works PERFECT as a finishing product as it brightens up my skin giving a healthy complexion as shown in previous posts.

For some reason, I am in love with any makeup that contains crushed pearls...so I treated myself with this as well...figured..HECK why not...THEY are delivering the other stuff, one more wont hurt much. I tested this on my hand and it glides on really smoothly and gives a dewy finish...totally recommend!!!

Of course, all that damage did come with a lot of samples...when i mean alot i mean ALOT! I didnt even finish the other samples i got from the last order....
Most of the samples were SKINFOOD and a couple were BRTC, I am totally taking BRTC outta my mind...SCINIC, the FACE shop, MISSHAshiny works the best for NC15 skin tones (n skinfood in light)

Ill be posting pics of the whole early birthday presentS to self very soon.

P/S: my dad told me that he got me a new camera and a new watch for my bday which is in 15 days...cant wait to see him, my mom n sis this friday!!! YAY!

ergh..finals on thursday....


chill pill

went out to chill for 1 3/4 hrs...nothing TOO crazy though.

makeup used: The Face Shop foundation, MAC eyeliner, RIMMEL metallic eyeliner for smudging, Diamond lavender Loreal Eyeshadow, RIMMEL maxlash mascara, LORAC blush, Skin79 Hologram pearl gold compact


Introducing.....even cuter....F.I.N.N

Here's my new found love!!! Finn will be 6 mths old May 20th...he's the cutest lil baby...well in my eyes...He's learning some karate moves. He's farts are SBD, and loud too! He's starting to eat some baby food and so far I'm guessing he likes peas, prunes, carrots, sweet potatoe, not so much bananas though but loves pears. He also likes juice alot...
Hopefully Ill get to get more pics with him and show you guys what he's been learning, such as stuffing both his fists in his mouth....ehhe...

*excuse my messy hair...Finn's been yanking on it...



Introducing OLIVE, our baby...a maltese, goin on 2 on the 23rd of May. She weighs a lil less than 9 lbs. She had a haircut, nice and short just in time for summer. The warm summer. I like her with short hair alot better, its so difficult to comb out all her matte hair when it gets toooooo outta hand.


drumroll please....

Managed to take a couple pics in natural light...used SCINIC bb cream today, as well as MAC concealer...MAC eyeliner...LORAC blush.
To those that have been waiting patiently,


In response to FEI's comment, check this out this is one of the sandals I got with a 10% discount...came out to be a lil under 35 bucks..not back for a pair of sandals aye?
What I like about this sandals is the zipper that is at the back of the ankle...easy for traveling when u have to go through security...u hear me? Compared to the other sandals i bought with at least 2 buckles i have to release before actually taking off my sandals is NOT an easy job to do when going through busy security checkpoint as well as shopping for other shoes.

been busy preping for finals...will load pics when i have time to even take a dump. bare with me laydees.



after reading the comments i got from lilbebe, i did some research and saw that SCINIC bb cream costs twice as much at evecare.com compared to sasa.com, even at amazon.com it costs twice as much...DANG! its such a good beginner bb cream that i totally recommend to all the girls out there that want to give bb cream a shot. Remember how I was biatching bout my blemishes on my face a couple months back, now my confidence is back....SCINIC and THE FACE SHOP bb cream did its job! I rather spend the money on those 2 bb creams than BRTC frankly speaking.
I also recommend SKIN79 hologram pearl compact SPF 30 together with the bb cream....and TADA! flawless face....even after 9 hours being out in the sun. When i mean flawless i mean, no melting of makeup...ur face will still look as smooth as if there's no makeup on.
I guess Ill use SCINIC bb cream and SKIN79 compact again and again. I still have THE FACE SHOP and SCINIC bb creams left, maybe ill stock up next month or so, together with the SKIN79 compact.



Hey gurls....i apologize for not posting the pics early or as promised.
I've been so busy moving out from my old place and preparing for my finals. There is a cantonese saying "dek han sey, ng dek han ban" meaning, 'if i am free, i'd rather die than be sick' something like that.
Basically Ill have to move out by next friday and be ready for check out which I cant wait.
I was gonna take a picture of my makeup today, but I used THE FACE SHOP bb cream instead of the SCINIC. Ill post dem pics ASAP....lets say within a couple days or so.
Ill be going home to NY on May 16th...I've coordinated with my parents, so I'll be meeting them at the terminal so we can go home together. I cant wait to see them. I bet my mom will be sooooo pumped when she sees my makeup, cos using those bb creams definately looks very natural and flawless, so i cant wait!
Also found some good deals on sandals...gladiator YAY!!
For those who shop at UrbanOutfitters.com, here's a coupon code for 10% off entire order> PICKAWINNER
There are a couple sandals that are a good buy.
FUG> on that note, I just remember than I have to move all my shoes to my new place tomorrow as well....totally forgot about those babies...i feel tired already thinking bout cleaning out that place. Itll be great it I am Sabrina the teenage witch so I can do everything with a snap of a finger.


Sasa.com order

Remember how I mentioned in my previous blog bout my purchase from sasa.com, well I got a chance to try out the Scinic BB cream (the one and only one they were selling), and it turned out to be FABU!!!! I LIKEY!!!!
Although it is not a huge brand, actually its pretty much unheard of, it's as good as THE FACE SHOP BB cream.
I am off the BRTC bb cream as it has a darker tone than THE FACE SHOP or Scinic. My skin is absorbing THe FACE SHOP and Scinic better, in fact, my akin is improving faster than if I were to use BRTC.
The consistency of Scinic is smooth and VERY easy to blend. It melted right into my skin without any flaws. By the end of the day, my makeup still stayed on without looking cakey or oily. Scinic and THE FACE SHOP matched my skin tone the best and I am a NC15 in MAC.
I am glad Scinic came in 50ml and for the price NOT BAD AT ALL!! I definately recommend this to everybody who wants to take a shot at using BB creams for the first time, wont go wrong!!!



So I'm back, been sooooo busy for the past week. The night before moving, I fell sick down with a terrible flu. Being sick means not being able to move much, I tried for the first 2.5 hrs and I felt so light headed that I had to sit even once in a while. So I gave up moving and Tel moved most the stuff after his friend who helped left.
All the boxes that were brought over from the old place were pretty much unpacked, now whats left in the craphole is my hanging clothes and shoes...and other lil bits and pieces of stuff. Me and tel would probably need to go back on Sunday or someething to finish up so we can start cleaning.
I am very pleased with the new place, big enough for both of us yet managable. It's very cosy too, and boy I LOVE THE KITCHEN. I promise Ill post pics of my place once I get my desk set up.

My SASA.com order is finally here!!! It arrived last week, but being sick just kinda threw me off not wanting to do shiat. I am trying to get back on track as I have a major exam next week, so there goes my weekend.



Sorry for not posting...just moved...tons of stuff happened. For now, korean/Japanese recipes!

Salted Egg (talgyal changjorim)

10-15 quail eggs
1 table spoon salt
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 table spoon sugar
2/3 cup water
1 table spoon ginger juice

Boil the eggs in salted water till the egg-shell breaks and peel them.
Put soy sauce, sugar, water and ginger juice in a pan and add the peeled eggs. Simmer the eggs on low fire till the liquid is almost evaporated. Turn the fire high and cook the eggs until they are glazed.
Let the eggs cool down.

To make the dish more beautiful, you can put some lettuce leaves on a plate and arrange the eggs nicely on top.

It is also possible to use 5 or 6 chicken eggs, hard-boil them and follow the same procedure. Cut the eggs in half before serving, it makes them easier to eat.

1kg/ 2lb chicken thigh fillets
10 spring onions (sliced diagonally)
about 25 wooden skewers
1/2 cup/ 125ml sake
3/4 cup/ 185ml Japanese soy sauce
1/2 cup/ 125ml mirin
2 tbsp sugar

Soak wooden skewers in water for about 20 minutes.
Drain and set aside.
Yakitori sauce: combine sake, soy sauce, mirin and sugar in a pan. Bring to boil then set aside.
Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and thread onto the skewer alternately with spring onion.
Place on a foil lined tray and cook under a preheated grill, turning and brushign frequently with the sauce for 7 to 8 minutes or until cooked through.

Japanese Baked Salmon
4 salmon fillets, about 1 pound (450g)
4 hajikami pickled ginger shoots
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sake
5 tablespoons mirin
peel of 1 yuzu, grated

Place the salmon fillets in a casserole or other wide shallow dish. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade and mix well. Pour over the salmon slices, and marinate for 4 to 5 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and cook the marinated salmon for 10 minutes, until golden brown. Serve each fillet with a shoot of hajikami pickled ginger.

Packing my stuff in boxes and running errands before I move aint fun...but heck, I am trying to make the best of it.
Gotta bring my lil one, Olive for her shots as well as grooming session...hopefully the weather wont be as sucky as today.

Currently getting my hands on TVB new 2008 series 'D.I.E. (Death Investigation Extension)', crunchyroll.com is no longer a valid site for TVB dramas...so FEI try watching it at megavideo.com.

SAVINGS savings!!!

*these online coupons can save you ALOT of money!!! EVEN on makeup!!! Such as JERGEN natural glow moisturizer that's the hit thing now...

I speed shopped at TARGET today....and saw this:

Its the yummiest cookie Ive ever had!!!! Too bad its limited edition, I might go back to TARGET sometime early next week and sweep all those goodies in my cart...YUM!!!


I was reading Reinvent's blog, she introduced this website www.taaz.com. It's basically a makeover website and is very easy to use compared to other makeover websites. I do recommend people who wants to use the website to upload a photo of yourself without makeup in order to see the difference, I didnt use a photo of myself without makeup...so here it is:

I didnt change my hairstyle using that website...all i did was just changing the lipcolor, eyeshadow, contacts, and blush...what a huge difference it can make!!!
you gurlz should give it a shot!!!


BIG DAY: Next weekend

Moving next Sat...YAY!!! Have I started packing? NO....i should though, been so restless since I got back. Why? I dont know..feel like that exam totally drained me out, still have one assignment and one test due by Friday another paper due next Thursday.

Makeup on me is THE FACE SHOP bb cream, with MAC eyeliner and RIMMEL white eyeliner for my inner eyes. That's what the hair color turned out...its getting a tad lighter and it evens out throughout my hair.

Oh ya...i forgot to mention that I bought the SALLY HANSEN clear nail buff polish...it creates a natural look for your nails making it look healthy and natural...
