DO YOU SEE?








CLOSER

OH, HI.

my life has been pretty boring lately. nothing much that you're missing out on.

a not-so-recent picture of my bestie and i. i love her to bits! haven't seen her for a while though, might be meeting up tomorrow. :)

well yesterday i went for a haircut (nothing major, just a trim, since i want my hair to grow longer), then i shopped a bit. got myself a pair of highwaisted shorts, the peacock feather earrings from forever21 i mentioned in my previous post, and a makeup corrector from daiso.

wanna see wanna see?

1. Makeup Corrector from Daiso, Rm5


i hate it when i've made up my face nicely, and am out having a good time, then take out my compact and notice that my eyeliner has run, making me look like i have panda eyes. not cool at all. i heard that daiso sells makeup correctors, so i picked one up.

what nifty blue packaging! so small and convenient.


ok so maybe i don't understand most of the names on the list of ingredients, but i see beeswax, mineral oil, and jojoba oil! so it has to be good, right?


this is what it looks like uncapped. to get more out, you just rotate the bottom. its texture is akin to wax, albeit somewhat not as hard. to use, you gently rub it across your skin, back and forth. i wouldn't say it's the absolute best, but it gets the job done.

2. Peacock Feather Earrings from Forever21, Rm20.


got these pretties as well.
 look at how vibrant the colours are!

3. High-waisted Shorts from Apee&Shibuya, Rm30.


they actually had the same design in grey but it sold out already. *frowns* well these aren't too shabby either i suppose.

SO FAR AWAY

harros.


on study break now, finals are right around the corner!

but first, a quick update. :)


trying on clothes when out shopping the other day.

i've actually been looking for a silver key pendant necklace for some time now, but my search hasn't been fruitful. 


i was at i love bazaar a few days ago and i saw this. got it for rm15. a bit too chunky from what i had in mind, i was thinking of something smaller, more delicate and sophisticated. ah well it'll do for now.

oh oh i also saw some peacock feather earrings at forever21 last week! not those kind where the feathers are so frayed they look like the bottom of a heavily used broom like this


the ones i saw were cut very neatly, like this.


these are the exact same ones i saw at forever21 (got this picture off their website), and this pair is going for rm20 right now!! not cheap, but so pretty! but should i get them or not? i don't wear earrings which are as over the top as this often, but they really are lovely.

yes or no?
dilemma dilemma.

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

my apologies for being away for so long!

something i am bursting to get off my chest :

- i KNOW, that i can write, and write well, too! for crying out loud, i have never received anything less than A's for any english literature subject! so i had better pass this subject, and pass it good! for real, i am gonna be damn pissed if i don't make it. what, am i not a student who has always shown my calibre in any subjects related to english, who has proven that i CAN write? i am freaking out here. i WANT that A, which i know i bloody well am entitled to!

***

so anyway, some asshole has been harassing and threatening me online.

last week, i received texts from an unknown number, asking if we could be friends. well i don't know about you, but i sure as hell do not make friends with random freaks who text me out of the blue, and in crappy english too. if don't already know, PPL HU TYP LIK TIS, and have typos and grammatical errors all over the place, annoy the hell out of me.

i sent back some sarcastic reply to the dick. unfortunately, he being the thick headed, pigbrained, numbskull that he was, did not get the message that i DID NOT WANT TO BE FRIENDS, and continued sending me stupid annoying messages, such as "hye dear.. how are you? pls remember to alwez kip in touch" to which i said "i AM NOT your dear. and i do not want to keep in touch". he then irritably replied "why...? dere is no harm to b frens ryte.."

stop wasting my time, you loser.

then, a few days ago, some guy using the name 'Prince Vera' talked to me on fb.

PRINCE VERA, YOUR ROYAL HIGHNESS, SEEKS TO MAKE AN ACQUAINTANCE.

he told me that he was the one who had been texting me, and couldn't understand why i couldn't just be a nice, friendly person, and let him get to know me.

WHAT THE
i tell you, if not for the fact that i have a strong standing policy against swearing, i would have spewed out several colourful expletives which would have scared the living daylights out of your grandma.

anyway, he kept on pressing me, preaching righteously and saying that there's no harm in getting to know people, it's always good to make new friends, and all that horse dung.

DUDE, I SWEAR IF I HAD A KNIFE WITH ME AND YOU WERE STANDING IN FRONT OF ME, I WOULD HAVE RUN YOU THROUGH WITH IT.

so bloody infuriating can??!! don't you dare bloody try to act all condescending and patronize me!

yeah, why indeed, would i not want to be your friend? after all, you're only a random stranger, whom i know nothing about. you could be a psycho with a fetish for panties, you could be an abusive depressed drunkard, why would i want to waste my money and time replying to your texts and fb messages?

i was in a majorly nasty mood that day, having to meet the deadlines for several assignments in a few hours, and i was ready to pull my hair out from all the academic stress. i DID NOT NEED some slimy dickhead annoying me shitless, whining and wheedling desperately for my attention when i had more, WAY more significant things to take care of.

and FYI, behaving in such a manner, does in NO WAY make me want to be your 'friend'. indeed, it only spurs me to do the opposite.

so i took gleeful scathing pleasure in telling him exactly what i thought of pathetic lifeless losers who dig up the phone numbers of girls they do not know, then proceed to send countless texts practically begging to make an acquaintance.

what, are you so repugnant that there is no way you could just make friends with people around you, that you have to resort to such desperate, pitiable measures to get to know females? then by golly, you can just imagine, how that  makes me just want to fall all over myself, rushing to shake your hand! NOT.

after my crushing reply, which must have indefinitely bruised his ego, he showed his Hyde.

he told me that i had better watch out, that he was going to come to my college to 'get me' and show me what kind of a person he could really be. he said that he had friends where i was, and i had better be scared, very scared. then, he told me that he would publish my number.

*YAWNS*

oh my, mr 'Prince Vera", your threats have had me quivering at the knees! gee, i'm so terrified that i just shit in my pants. please, i beg of you, do me no harm, please!

*bursts out laughing uncontrollably at the ridiculosity of it all*

sure, i'm totally regretting not giving you a chance and getting to know you, now that i've seen how gentlemanly and matured you are! piece of shit.

YOU, you filthy scum, are the one who had better take note. if you try anything funny, mark my words, i bloody well will lodge a legal report, and take joy in hunting you down and making sure you pay, every single inch.

now, run along with your tail between your legs, and don't you dare return!


hey look someone searched for pictures of smashed cockroaches and google led them to my blog! haha!

MOVE IT

i only have myself to blame.

all those nights hanging out, those days of traisping the malls, hours of basketball, laps of running, lounging in front of the telly, reading magazines, surfing the internet looking at junk.

all those times when i was having so much fun loafing around doing less relevant things, of telling myself "i'll do it tomorrow", have taken their toll.

tomorrow i have to hand in 3 assignments, one review, and to top all that off, a big fat test. the hell, i have to scrape together all my assignments, tie up all the loose strings, and i've barely studied.
*bangs head on wall*

soon, guys. soon.
p.s. that is, if i make it through this alive.

MY 400th POST

so this is my 400th post, and i was hoping to have something interesting to fill you guys in on, but sadly, there is nothing much happening in my life so far, other than rushing to meet assignments and deadlines, and cramming for finals which are right round the corner.

but take a guess on who's coming to town soon??


that's right, david choi is coming to malaysia yo!

for those of you who didn't know (seriously, where have you been? man, you need to get yourself a life :P) he is one of the most popular musicians on youtube, with more than 100million views.

honestly, i wouldn't have thought that any youtube musician would ever come to our country as we aren't exactly known for being very accommodating.
*ahem no thanks to certain political parties that make a big fuss everytime popular artistes come in to perform ahem*

i've been a fan of david choi for some time now so im glad that he's finally coming to our shores.

here, have a look at some of his stuff :)


this one is my favourite video so far.

2:22 - the guy seems to be doing a ninja / karate chop.
2:42 - chester see making out with balloons.
3:18 - check out this dance move.
3:23 - and this one too. :)

this is a collaboration between wongfuproductions, kevjumba, and david choi, with the far east movement, chester see, kina grannis, and other youtube personalities lending their talent. so fun and catchy, with a light-hearted feel to it, plus you get those feel good vibes from them totally enjoying what they're doing.

i like the editing and special effects on this video. they might have looked trashy used any other way, but wfp really takes the cake for working their ways with the effects. :)


this is so sweet! totally the kind of song i'd want my boy to serenade me with :'D the cinematography is awesome as well.


jazzy and relaxed, so jason mraz.

i so want in, i'm gonna drag some of my fellow fans along for this concert. plus look at the ticket prices! only rm60++ to get in, awesome. B)

are you guys up for this as well? i know i am. :)

MADDENING

i know my posts haven't been very interesting lately. post after post filled with words, what happened to the picture-filled posts that used to be so prevalent?

finals are in 3 weeks. next friday is my last week of classes before study break. im pushing so hard at assignments, its like giving birth.

so yes, life has been pretty mundane lately. nothing much worth blogging about.

but i still hope to see you guys soon, with interesting pictures and happenings to tell you about.

till then. :)

OF DEATH AND HELL

arghh my blog looks so boring with the severe lack of pictures lately!

*looks around for a random picture to throw into my blog*

there. :)

that's lewis and i, a coupla weeks ago when he fetched me out to klcc to run some errands.

snippet of our conversation in the car that day.

lewis : you so you wanna go to klcc?
me : yup.
lewis : why ah?
me : to exchange something i bought.
lewis : walao, so you want to go all the way then come back?
me : no lah, i only want to go halfway then come back. 

***

randomly, i was thinking about the phrases "eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow, we die", and "live each day like it's your last".

- hell to calories! if today were the last day of my life, the first thing i'd do would be to totally binge on burgers, lasagna, chocolate, pretzels, pasta, pizza, waffles, ice cream, you name it. i'd stuff myself silly, eating until i'm practically blue in the face. i wouldn't stop until i pass out from the exhaustion of it, my tummy resembling a giant bloated beach ball. 

- why bother studying, why bother trying to improve my life, heck, why bother taking baths? there's no point anyway, since i'm gonna be a goner in 24 hours.

- i'd throw all caution to the wind and go ahead, doing anything and everything i've ever wanted. i'd hover above an active volcano in a helicopter, i'd fly to paris and stand on top of the eiffel tower, i'd sail to alaska and see the aurora borealis.
i'd swim with man-eating sharks because even if they were to suddenly decide i look tasty and to eat me up, i wouldn't have much to lose anyway. 
i'd walk around wearing nothing but my birthday suit! :D i'd visit infamous nudist beaches! and with the last 5 seconds of my life left to live, i'd yell "cheerio!" and jump off the edge of the niagara falls into the thundering mist of the mighty waterfall. 

***

and then it led me to thinking about death, and then about hell (not that i intend to end up there.) do you suppose that hell is a one for all place? previously, even if i never bothered much about hell, i always presumed that it was one direction, with everyone ending up in the same place . 

but then i realized, one person's idea of hell might not be the same as the next. let's assume that hell is a place where you have to deal with the things you hate. person A loves broccoli, while person B detests it. so it might be that A's idea of hell is a place where broccoli doesn't exist. while for B, broccoli would be forced down his throat until he is gasping for air and begging for mercy.

hmm.
what do you think?

THE MORE THE MERRIER


awww how adorable!

so my law test went pretty good. :)

still on my disney high from yesterday, i've been continuing to watch even more today.

might be overdoing it with the sudden influx of disney videos, but hey, you can never have too much of a good thing. besides, it's disney! what's there not to like? :D

i bet even the most hardened, gun-toting, ruthless, mafia mobsters go :') when they watch disney videos.


POCAHONTAS


13 million views on youtube ftw.

ALADDIN




ENCHANTED


this one really gets to me because it's so intriguingly vivid, actually happening in real life.
ok so i know that it's just acting but still! don't rain on my parade!


cute.

DISNEY, YOU'LL FOREVER BE IN MY HEART. ♥

so i have a media and communications law test tomorrow but have spent the whole day sitting in front of the lappie watching disney videos from the classics ; cinderella, peter pan, beauty & the beast, etc.

it is really fascinatingly magical, how disney created this realm of imagination, bringing to life a never never land every one of us have deep inside.

watching these videos caused fuzzy nostalgic feelings to burst back into vibrance and lucidity, like a staticky televison set which has suddenly been fixed.  it made all the familiarity and wonder of my childhood come flooding back, of old memories faded and forgotten, come rushing back anew. :')

disney, you'll forever be in my heart. ♥ 


CINDERELLA




hahaha this is sooo cute!






THE LITTLE MERMAID




BEAUTY AND THE BEAST




i love the splendour, how extravagantly over the top this one is.




PETER PAN




:D


"think of all the joy you'll find, when you leave the world behind, and wave your fears goodbye"


so true.
astoundingly amazing, these songs are.

well now, i suppose i've wasted enough time here.
gotta get down to studying, ta. :)

SMITTEN

so this tutorial here was just what i needed!



all the styles look so interesting! bohemian braids, french side braids, double bun, faux french braids (??)

CONQUERING TEMPTATION

hey there. :)


my skin looks so dry and flaky in the picture above. :/

so anyway, i went out yesterday but i don't think i'll blog about it now because it's kinda late and i'm tired. some other day i suppose. but i have to post something first to get my blogging fix (lol sounds like a drug) before i head to bed.

i had another interesting dream a few days ago.

i have a friend, lets call him X. i've known him since we were kids, and we were pretty tight before he moved away to another state 8 years ago, which was when we lost contact with each other. we've reconnected a couple years back, and daymn, he's grown to be seriously good looking.

tall, broad shoulders, athletic, a good conversationalist (VERY IMPORTANT IN MY BOOK!! if you know me personally, you'd know why, right? :D) plus he's smart to boot. mmm, just my kinda guy. thing is, X already has a girlfriend (has been with her for more than 2 years), and is totally devoted to her already. no matter, that's all good. i'm happy for him, and there are plenty other guys out there. that, and the fact that i would never, EVER make a move on someone who's already attached.

well moving on to my dream.

***

in my dream, i was having dinner with X, just the two of us. i don't know where we were, but it was at some upper class place (there was candlelight!), and we were rather dressed up. we talked and laughed, basically just had a good time. after dinner, we went to a park for a walk.

it was evening, pretty romantic. after walking around for some time, he sat down on a bench, and pulled me down to sit on his lap before trying to kiss me.


right brain - hottie trying to make a move on me, yeow! :D
left brain - you idiot, would you really lower your standards, defy your principles and morals, go along with him and help him cheat on his girlfriend?

i turned away quickly got up before he could succeed in getting a peck, smoothing down my clothes. "what are you trying to do?" i asked him.

"come on, she doesn't need to know." he answered, attempting to pull me back to him. i pushed him away,  but then he stood up as well and tried to hug me. i then pushed him away HARD, before scoffing, giving him a sarcastic smirk and walking away.

***

i don't know how this dream came about but i'm woke up feeling jubilant, empowered, and happy! it proves that even subconsciously, my principles and morals in the field of love are strong and sound!

because, as confident, independent, and secure as i might appear to be outwardly, sometimes, i do question as well.

why is it, that i have been single for so long?

ok that was just a rhetorical question, no point asking that because i already know the answer.

it is because there is no one i see that has met my requirements yet! or if there is, they either already attached, gay, not looking for a relationship, or are out of my reach. (josh kloss josh kloss josh kloss! haha)



now there's some eye candy for you!

in case you didn't know, he's the guy alongside katy perry in the teenage dream music video.

but coming back to what i said, sometimes i do question why, and i wonder how long i am willing to wait. it is easy to say for now, and be all gung ho and determined about it, but what if i were in my 30s and still single (touch wood), would i still be so staunch about my beliefs, would i still be so determined sticking it out on my own looking for The One?

or would i just go "shit if i don't get married PRONTO, soon i'm gonna be a little old lady living alone and one fine day neighbours will detect a foul smell coming from my house and call the cops and then they'll break down the doors, only to find me stiff, cold, and dead in my rocking chair and that will be the story of my pathetic single life." and start getting desperate, thus throwing myself at any guy who shows the merest signs of interest in me?

i certainly hope not!

so what are my requirements, you ask? here they are, in no particular order.

1. he must be, MUST be intelligent. i don't mean i want him to be able to recite the entire encyclopedia britannica, or calculate the value of the square root of pi in his head, i want someone who is up to date with events and information, someone who is witty and able to hold his own in a conversation, someone who is able to argue his way with strong backing of facts and information. someone who has the capacity to keep up with me on my level of thoughts. (mind you, i can get pretty technical and factual sometimes with serious issues)

(and i know some people might probably be scoffing at me going "hmmph, so does SHE think now, that she's all that intelligent and witty? well as a matter of fact, YES I DO. :D)

(ok so i don't actually think of myself that i way, that was a joke you moron. but while i might not be at the top of the mensa list, i know for a fact that i am not stupid. i dare you to disagree.)

2. while i am not your typical goody two shoes little christian girl, i still hold strongly to my religion. i have been born into a christian family, and a big part of my life revolves around events and friends at church. therefore, i would like him to be a christian, or at least not against christianity.

3. he has to have a good character. as in, filial to his parents (ok i know im not exactly daddy's little girl and have my fair share of disagreements with them, but i strongly believe in filial piety e.g. not dumping your parents in an old folks home when they start getting old and finicky. your mother put up with your kicking and squirming in her womb for 9 months, and then put up with you for the subsequent 20something years of your life, and your father put a house over your head and food on the table for you! would you abandon them when things get trying?), a loyal friend, have a good sense of fairness, respectful towards women, etc etc.

4. he has to have his principles and priorities right. i do not wish to marry someone who will not be able to support me and subsequently, our kids in the future. (that is, if we decide to have kids. i think children can be rather annoying at times. maybe i'll just settle for a dog. or perhaps a parrot, if i want conversation. :D) so he must have all the right priorities. no way would i settle for someone who is lazy, has no ambitions or plans for the future, and is content to just live his life off his parents' money in front of the telly with a can of booze in one hand and a bag of chips in the other.

5. i know some may say that this is purely superficial, and does in no way play a part or affect relationships in any way, and it's the inside that counts, bla bla bla, but i would like to have someone who is above average in the looks department. while i am no megan fox, i don't think i am a fugly bag either, and that i am entitled to have my expectations, so there.

(well, depending on the circumstances, i might make some exceptions to this one.)

6. preferably not a smoker, alcoholic, or couch potato. it would also be nice if he would not patronise strip clubs, or have a fetish for panties. oh, and i also strongly dislike people who use profanities in every single sentence that comes out of their mouth. i would like him not to have had shagged 50 girls in the past, or have had a criminal record. and did i mention that it would be pleasing to have someone who actually brushes his teeth and combs his hair in the morning?

(ok so no.6 was half in jest. emphasis on HALF :D)

yes i know it is a rather tall order to meet, and with such high expectations, i might have to wait slightly longer. but no matter! when a guy comes along who does meet all those conditons, i know, i KNOW, he will have been worth the wait. :)
