那些年...

我终于看完了[那些年,我们一起追的女孩]。


在去年的五月(或是六月~我忘了)看完了这部本来没有打算去看的电影,因为受到故事的感动,买了这本小说。以我的华文程度用了快十个月的时间来看完算蛮快了。:p

读完了后我只能说我很佩服九把刀(也就是这本书的作者)。他已成为我最爱的中文作者。也是我唯一认识的一个。哈哈~

我佩服他什么呢?我佩服他能在电影和小说用一个差不多一样的(真实)故事制造两种不同的感动。很奇妙,故事大纲一样,一样的开头,一样的结局。但为什么给我的感动是不同的呢?真实超厉害。

第二,我很佩服他从一个不读书的小子,可以靠自己的努力能够读完大学而成为了这个时代很出名的作家。我超看得起这种人。我本身非常相信世上没有笨的人,只有没有努力过的人。这是我自己说深深体验过的。

最后,我很佩服他对沈佳仪的长久追求。八年耶!!!谁会追求一个人那么久啊?听过最久的也不过是一年而已。*salute*

虽然结局不是理想的完美童话故事...公主与王子永远快乐的在一起。但却是一个很美的画面做句点。王子没了爱情但并没与公主成为仇人,而是永远的好朋友和回味/欺笑初恋的对象。这不就是现实生活吗?不是每一个结果都会完美的。

我超推荐大家去读一读这本小说...或你也可以去看一看这部电影。但我觉得小说写得比较细。可以更了解整个故事和九把刀的世界。

人家说看完一本书就像结束了生活的一部分一样。我深深感触到这是真的。生活中再也没有柯景腾和沈佳仪的踪影感觉好像少了什么事/东西。

我打算再看一遍[那些年,我们一起追的女孩]的电影...已经是第三次了(我要看个八百遍才过瘾 :p)。回味回味一下那一份感动。顺便看看柯震东那张帅脸。 ^^

九把刀, Y U SAY U LOOK LIKE THIS WHEN YOU LOOK LIKE SHIT???

现在我正在读另一本书了。回到自己比较擅长的英文书籍。接下来我还打算买另一本九把刀的书。书名我忘了。看到大概会记得。到时再与大家分享介绍。

要开始做工咯。下次再见。

拜拜!

p/s:reason why I blogged in chinese its coz its better to talk/review about it in chinese since its a chinese book.

January 2012 Favorites

Hello!!!

Today I'm in a terrible condition. I have terrible sore throat. Can't speak loudly but I still have to teach at Pei Daw. Teach at Pei Daw = Screaming (T^T). But then again some kids are so cute they make my pain feel ok ^^. It still hurts to talk so I'm talking less. Boy, I think every one is very happy. LOL~

Last night I had a insomnia. Its been a long time since I had one. Usually I can't sleep due to something I drank...like coffee or tea. But last night I didn't drink anything like that. I think its impossible that my green tea swissroll would make me sleepless right? I'm guessing its due to my sore throat. I couldn't breath properly last night. My nose wouldn't stop watering (?) and there's like something stuck in my throat. Super terrible. I felt better after sniffling -.- some medicated oil and slept for a few hours which only felt like minutes.

Anyways, today Imma talk about my monthly favorites. Quite a lot of stuff. Some of the items are old stuff that I recently really while most of the rest are things that I've just started trying last month.

Recently I like to mix up my lipsticks to create a lot of different colors. Just found one combination that I really like...
As labelled, the one on the left is Candy Doll's Ramune Pink and on the right is Rimmel's Coral Chic

I bought Coral Chic quite long ago (bought it in March 2010 to be precised). Just kept it in the makeup storage coz I think the color is a little too red for me. Erm... I don't know how to explain it but I think that the color is a little bit "aunty" for me.

As for Ramune Pink, maybe I've gotten a lot fairer. I realized that I don't suit pale nude anymore. So I've not used it since I bought it.

One day... don't know why I just happen to be creative. I put on these two lipstick together and I loved it. Since I can't wear it on its own, I'll just wear both together.

Here's the swatches of the lipsticks on their own and mixed together.
See how its like a pinkish red color when mixed together. Damn nice right?

Here's how it looks like on my lips...
Sorry no close up :P

Anyways, when I put on these two combinations on Christmas Eve lot of people commented that it looked nice. I loved it myself too. That's why I've been using these two a lot lately.

But gotta be careful when you smile coz the colors may make your teeth look a lil yellow. Gotta do extra whitening before putting on this.

Oh if you wanna try them both separately or together, check out Candy Doll at Sasa and Rimmel at most drugstores and pharmacies.

Next is a blush that I bought from Taiwan last year

I've never used it (or open up the wrapping) until recently coz my old blush just expired. This was the backup.

I bought it Taiwan coz at that time Malaysia didn't carry this. Later we do have it here...very very long after that is.

The color that I got is #02 Orange Stripe

I chose something other than pink coz I think I don't suit pink blushes. I now use bronzers (brown shade blushes). I decided to try orangey shades since I've not tried it ever.

The cheek gradation is a 4-color mixture blush to let you create nice shine and glow. You can use it all together or use the top three colors at the top as a blush and the bottom one as a highlight. I think you can use each color on its own. But I'm not sure how.

I don't have a swatch of the color coz its kinda the sheer. But its color is build-able gradually. That's why I like about this blush. Some blushes is sheer with one swipe but after two swipes, it becomes like too bright.

Other than the color, my favorite thing is the brush which came together with the blush

It was so soft!!! Its the first time I've gotten a free brush with blush that is so soft and easy to use. I don't even have to bring a brush out with me anymore.

If you're interested in trying this blush, you can check out Sasa. I'm not sure if they still have it coz Canmake had came out with so many new blush range. About the blush and the other colors that they have, check *here* out.

For CNY I've been looking for a pair of heels coz its been awhile since I last bought some shoes. All the heels that I had had some problems and had to send to cobbler. Had been looking for almost a month. Didn't find anything I liked and comfy enough. Until... I went into Anna House.
I found this pair of tan heels while Sinren was in the toilet. Hahahaha~ That's why don't leave your gf alone. Hahahaha~

Its very comfortable even though its damn high. It doesn't strain the feet coz of the platforms at the front. My feet didn't hurt after wearing for the whole day at church the other day. Plus it didn't give me any blisters coz the faux leather part was rather soft.

This has got to be the highest height of shoes I've ever had

But it was very very very steady because of the thick heel. The heel was made to be so sturdy.

I always had heels that were wobbly...mostly from Vincci *rolls eyes*. People always said expensive shoes are good but I think Vincci shoes are overpriced. They are not good at all. They hurt my feet, gives me blister, uncomfortable to my feet and are wobbly. I don't know bout you guys but I think all of Padini Concept stuff are overpriced. I mean its my opinion. If you still like to go there to buy anything and like them very very much, you should.

Anyways, there aren't many shoes at Anna House. Only a few available at the front display when you walk in to the store. Plus sizes are very limited as well. This pair of heels that I got was left with my size only. *big watery eyes* I was super lucky that day.

I once tried a pair of leopard print pumps which was super nice as well. It had all sizes except mine :(((( So sad. That shoes were so nice.

Anna House is situated opposite Overtime at Hatten Square. Its a small humble shop but house a lot of really nice clothing, some shoes and other beauty items. Do check them out. They have a FB page *here* and their website *here* where you could order clothes from them if you're not from Melaka.

I'm not any way afflicted with them. I just really like their store that I want to support them and share with you guys something nice.

This is another thing that I got from Anna House that I really love. Its a flowy sheer white top that I wore on the first day of CNY.

Its super flowy and the texture of the cloth is very soft. The material of the cloth is not thick so even in hot weather you could wear it...even though you'll need to wear two layers of clothing.

Clothes at Anna House are very limited too...in both sizes and amount. In a way its good coz you won't see everyone wearing the same clothes as you are.

While we're talking about clothes, I also really like this top from MNG. Not because its slutty wtf. I just don't know why but I like it a lot.

As you all might know I have very light hair color. So my brows tend to stand out like a sore thumb because its so bloody black. My solution is to get this.

Its like a mascara. So you just brush the color onto your brows...like how you would do with a mascara...to change the color of your brows.

The color that I got was LB-1...light brown 1. Its suitable for people that have light brown and light chocolate hair color.

If you're like blonde or something lighter than light brown, do try LB-2.

Swatch on my hand

How it looked on me

Sorry bout the awkward face. I'm don't always look like that. >_>

This was went I didn't really know how to apply it so its a bit uneven. I'm still not very good at it. My dad, the "eyebrow" expert, always had to help me when I'm applying to get it more even.

I chose this instead of a eyebrow pencil coz I think this is way easier to apply and you won't do much mistakes with this. The color is build-able. More coats darker the color. One thing that I didn't like about it is when its dry it makes your browns stiff. The feel of stiffed brows are weird wtf.

This is a bit weird but I'm loving the H&M outlet undies I got from FOS. Yes, very very weird. LOL~ But I love it too much that I must share it out.

Its very comfy. So comfy its as though you're not wearing anything. Plus it comes in  many different colors.

I don't know if you could still get it. But you could try looking at FOS. If you like to wear thongs, there's also the thongs version available. That I don't know comfy or not la. Coz I didn't try. Hahaha~ Somebody try it and let me know wtf.

Last item is this scarf from Kitschen

I was looking for a light weight scarf but didn't find any with the prints I like. I'm looking for something simple. There's so many out there with crazy prints...leopard prints, floral etc. Its not that I don't like those prints. But it wouldn't suit my clothes.

I saw this at Kitschen. It was so soft...like my blankie wtf. So I had to get it.

As you can see from above I wear a lot of white and other light colors. So it goes well with all my clothes.

Wah super long lor this post. Seriously for last month I've been loving a lot of things that I've tried. I must be damn good at choosing stuff to buy wtf.

For this month, I've not tried many things yet since CNY is over. No reason to shop. Still haven't found anything that I really like.

Alright la... I have to go search for movies to download for my trip next month. Anybody got any recommendations? I don't know what to download. I've downloaded Breaking Dawn and Reel Steel. That's what I reallywanted to watch on cinema but missed the screening. Please give me some suggestions. Coz I have few hours of flight to kill. I can't just be sleeping right?

Ok la... see you guys in the next post. Don't miss me ^.^

Bubbye~

January 2012 Hauls

Hello...

Can you guys believe that January just went by so quickly? I was quite shocked when mum told me it was February already. Without knowing it, it might be December in a wink of an eye.

Anyways, I was preparing for this post and I came to realize why I am so broke wtf. Seriously I dread the festive season... I'm left with an empty wallet every year after December and January.

This post is going to be slightly shorter coz I'm gonna talk about only two things. These two things are the things that I've bought this month but didn't really have much feelings for. I'll do all the ones that I like in my favorites post. There's still some other things that I didn't include coz I've not officially used them so no use in talking about them.

Ok, let's start with item no.1
I don't know if you guys know but I love Revlon's liquid foundation. Had been using them since uni. As my powder foundation is finishing, I'm looking into getting some thing different from the one that I always used. So I've decided to give Revlon PhotoReady Two Way Powder Foundation a try.

I love the packaging. Looks so class. Summore its so flat and the shape is so easy to pack anywhere.

I'm using the shade Rich Ginger. I don't remember whether its the darkest or something. But its one of the darkest la...

Love the big mirror!!!

Yes, I took all of these pics with my phone's camera coz I've not fixed my camera :(


Close look of how Rich Ginger looks like in the pan. The pic above of this one is more of the true color. This one looks a bit washed out for unknown reason.

Swatched on my finger to let you guys see how it looks like

The color reminded me a lot of some sort of spice powder's color. Erm... like curry powder wtf~


The foundation is pretty sheer coz when I first applied it on my face, I can't see the color (like in the pan) on my face. I can't even see any difference with and without it on my face. I decided maybe I should apply more to see if it works better. It did. So I guess one must at least apply two to three layers of it to see difference.

Thank God it did not look thick and feel heavy on my face when I put a lot of it on my face. I didn't fell like I had anything on at all unlike its liquid foundation.

But I'm still not sure whether I like it or not. Have mixed feelings for it. I'll use it for awhile more and probably decide whether I like it or not.

The next thing is these brandless Mink Fur Eyelashes which I've gotten from Sasa

So I've heard about Mink Fur Eyelashes from some friend. It seems that it was made from fur so its very natural. I always wanted to try it out.

The one that I got was in ZME 1204 which had accent on the middle area

I should have known that this thing was going to be bad judging from the packaging.

When I saw this box (looking like somebody had ripped it open) I asked the sales assistant if I could get another one. She told me it was the only one left and assured me that nobody had opened it. Its just that the design of the box was bad. So after hanging at the display for quite awhile, the box became like that.

Argh!!!! I should have known...it was a sign that the thing was going to be bad :(

By now, you guys probably know that I dislike this.

Anyways, here's how it looks like up close...

The reason why I didn't like it is coz of the lash bone. You know (those who often uses falsies) how when we want to apply fake eyelashes we will bend the eyelashes to create a arch so that it is easier to apply to the eyes? Well, for this eyelash it didn't create an arch. Let me show you how it looked like...
I don't know if you could see it but it had lots of bends here and there and not a full arch

For comparison purpose, I'll show you how a full arch supposed to look like...
Erm... its not a full arch either coz the lash broke a little. Haha~ But if you look at the right side of it that's how it supposed to looked like.

So after you create the arch, the eyelashes are supposed be easier to apply coz its like the shape of you eyes. But after bending the damn eyelashes, it returned to the shape like how it looked like in the box which is like this...
Again the other eyelash was for comparison to how its supposed to look

You tell me how to apply to my eyes with the thing looking like that?

It took me quite awhile before I managed to fit it to my eyes -.- Wasted so much time. Kena scold by mother summore (late for church blame it on the eyelashes ;p)

I was quite disappointed coz it was quite expensive but I didn't like it. The Daiso eyelashes which I've only paid RM is so much better compared to it. Its so weird lor coz Daiso ones had harder lash bone but so much easier to shape while this one with soft lash bone is so difficult to shape.

The only pros about the eyelashes is that it really looked very natural as said. Here's how I looked with it on...
I've used both products mentioned above to create the look. What do ya think? Nice? Hehe~

In the next post I'll post about the things that I liked a lot this month. Also I have to post up about CNY.

Now I have to go get ready coz I had to go for class now.

So I'll see you guys in the next post.

Bubbye~
