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.
