Chatty Monday

It’s been a while since I last posted a proper update of what I’ve been up to since I got back. In fact, life’s pretty much the same this year as it was last year, except that my brother’s here with me now so I don’t really get to sleep in during the weekends.

He stays over during the weekends and so on Saturdays & Sundays, we’ll be crazy busy with grocery shopping, doing laundry, hanging out with friends and whatnot. Which is amazing! It makes my life that little much more interesting, lol. I love making full use of my weekends so I don’t feel like I’m not doing anything besides working from Monday to Friday.

Oh, I’m growing to like my hair color more now. It’s not so bright that it shouts “Look at me!!!” anymore but more like, “Hey…” Hahahahahaha! Oh, this is ridiculous. But the sad thing is, just when I’m growing to like it, my black roots are growing out too and it’s ruining the whole “Hey…” thing. -_-

The awful thing is I’m too stingy to have my hair done in the salon here so I’m only left with two choices. One, buy a DIY hair dye from the supermarket and get the boyfriend to help me color my roots. Two, leave it just as it is and hope that winter comes faster so I can wear a beanie and cover them up, which unfortunately, only applies when I’m outdoors. T_T

It also seems like my crazy hormones have finally settled down – I don’t get breakouts as much as I did three, four years ago now. I’m so happy to finally be able to just go out without layers of concealer, foundation and loose powder and also not having to cover my face when someone looks at me for a tad too long that it makes me uncomfortable.

I guess skincare plays a big part in this as well. I’m still trying out what really works for me but so far, the routine that I’m sticking to works very well for my skin and I’m seeing results. Am so happy! Still waiting for the day when my face becomes scar-free, pimple-free, with invisible pores and an ultra even skin tone with a surging glow from within to come, hahaha! Oh, wishful thinking.

I’m also picking up my cameras once again. Been doing some catalog shoots for a friend of mine and filming short clips on my own. Unfortunately, my PC doesn’t like me very much when I try to edit videos – it crashes so much it drives me bonkers! Hence I was thinking of getting an iMac but then again, I’m too stingy to buy one. -_- But I’d really, really love to make a short video of some sort with a self-written script. Now who would like to star in my first silent film? Hehe.

As you can see, I’m doing things that I enjoy very much and I’m very well – eating, sleeping, working, resting and breathing.

Now it’s time to hit the sack and face tomorrow with a smile. Life’s too short to be filled with complaints!

Honestly, I’ve missed blogging.

Goodnight everyone!


Sculpture by the Sea

A couple of friends and I went to Cottesloe Beach on Sunday for the 2011 Sculpture by the Sea event. The sun was hot, the beach was crowded, but we had an amazing time together.

Hope you enjoy the video =)

Who Won the Sweep?

Have I mentioned that I was very lucky on my birthday this year?

My bosses had their second child this year – on my birthday! Boss then held a sweepstake in guessing the weight of their newborn. And guess what?

I won the sweep!

Received my prize yesterday – a David Jones gift card!!!

Now, when should I go shopping? 😀

Birthday! Whee~!

I had an awesome birthday celebration again this year with a couple of close friends and for the first time in 5 years, a family member – my brother!

Wing Kin got me an ice-cream cake this year for my birthday! Super, super happy about it ‘cos I haven’t had birthday cakes for a few years now so I’ve actually been bugging him about it, pestering him to get me an ice-cream cake this year, heh! Thanks darling!

Now I shall let the photos do the talking……
