End of 2013

Monday, December 30, 2013

So 2013 had come to an end, 
what have I achieved so far?
did I achieved my goals that I had set for this year ?
We'll find out soon ;)

Let's review the resolutions that I had set for this year ahead and see which one have I achieved:

1. Get into college. [ like duh ] 
2. work my ass off for my online store . ✘ 
3. always keep my blog updated ;) ✓ 
4. not to be as lazy as how I was in high school . ✓ 
5. save money for OUR next getaway . [ you know who you are <3 ] ✓ 
6. be more responsible in EVERYTHING since I have problems with this for 17 years. ✓ 
7. gym every weekend . [ nyehahaha. we'll see how this 1 work out ]
8. sleep at 10 every night [ we'll see about this 1 too :D ]
9. don't spoil my phone AGAIN .
10. Cut off my swearing habit . [ learn to be "atas" abit ] No changes LOL but got improve lah x)
11. Learn how to dress up abit.
12. Improve horrible skin conditions.
13. be nicer than how I usually was :P ( ?? ) --> Actually I'm not sure LOL

so, in total, not counting the last 1 because I'm not so sure, 
I have 7 achieved upon 12, and 5 failed to achieve :)

NOT BAD LOR ACTUALLY, 
mai hiam lah okay ? Quite hard to achieve some, 
for example, since now I had entered college, 
according to resolution no. 4, I need to be more hard working, 
so I need to study and do my work on time right ?
this kind of clashed with resolution no. 8, 
you tell me la, how to sleep at 10pm every night when I need to do stuff? 
*makes sense right? so that's not counted as failed HAHAHA super kia su* 

Anyways,

Thats pretty much the simplest way of summarizing my whole 2013, 
despise the color and length of my hair, 
I would admit that this year had been my best year so far, 
and of course, I had my ups and downs, 
of course the 'ups' are more lah since I called it the best year so far :D

there are more bits of tiny detail that are really memorable, 
however I can't really include all of them in here as this post will turn into a freaking novel if I do so. 
If you're nosy and want to about the little events and stuff, 
you can always read back my old blog posts, or follow my instagram and stalk back, 
I believe instagram recorded most of my life so far, 
its my no.1 social media :p

Anyways, I had learnt many things this year, 
I really do hope and have my fingers crossed that 2014 will be a hell of a great year, 
EVEN BETTER THAN 2013 :D
I can't get any more greedy, 
But yeah, 
who doesn't wish for a better year right ?

As for my readers that had followed me since ages ago, 
Do know that I really really really love you guys and am so thankful for your love and support, 
I wouldn't have gone this far without you guys, 
I promise to update super often and of course, with content that doesn't bore any of you out there. 
Just to clarify, I never treated you guys as fans, you guys are all my readers that actually knows my daily life, my personality, and my craziness and of course, not leaving out my typo's out......x) 
calling you guys fans is just wrong because I'm nothing near famous, nor inspirational. 
Once again, thank you for all the support, 
let me know in the comment down below whether should I set resolutions again for 2014, 
or some new ideas of resolutions 
or just anything you want to say ! 
I would love to interact with you guys. 
*I OFFERED TO CHAT AH, DON'T EVER CALL ME LANSI*
HAHAHA
goodnight guys !

Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue [Adv]

Saturday, December 28, 2013

Sponsored Advertorial

My favorite month of the year had always been December as I love the idea of Christmas,
though I'm not a Christian myself, nor my family,
However, we do celebrate this festive season with our family and friends.
The decorations, musics, shopping sales, and not forgetting my favorite part, the presents.
Exchanging presents during Christmas had been a popular culture since the olden days and nowadays,
this activity is not limited for Christians only, but for every other religions too !
I believe everyone of us is excited to receive them but when it comes to selecting the right present for the right person, can be a little bit tricky.

I personally love to get perfumes for my friends especially when I'm a girl and I love things that smells good :)
Finding the right scent for your friends and family isn't exactly as hard as you think!
here are a few simple steps :

To get a timeless scent, Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue fragrances for him & for her suits anybody, anytime.
The Mediterranean love story of Dolce&Gabbana’s Light Blue fragrances continues with a fascinating new chapter which you saw in the YouTube video above. This time, the two lovers chart a new course, with Italian model Bianca Balti cast as a classic Mediterranean beauty who takes the lead in a game of seduction. She is irresistible to David Gandy, who celebrates his third Light Blue advertising campaign with this episode shot in the glittering sapphire blue waters of Capri.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana: “We wanted to capture the electricity and the excitement of a love affair with a strong Mediterranean woman. Bianca has featured in many Dolce&Gabbana campaigns, but to see her with David brings a renewed, relaxed energy to Light Blue. Together, their eyes match the colour of the water, that beautiful endless blue that is the Mediterranean surrounding Capri. Watching it is to dream of plunging into that refreshing sea and feel the sun on the skin, to feel totally free.”
Bianca Balti’s character portrays the Italian femme fatale, and represents the Dolce&Gabbana woman: a self-assured beauty who her lover cannot resist.
Bianca Balti: “Light Blue was one of the first fragrances I wore, and I keep going back to it because when I wear it I am instantly transported back to Capri; the sun on my skin, the smell of the air and the sound of the sea. I love my character in this new Light Blue campaign, she is so feminine and so in control.”
The Designers worked closely with reknowned fashion photographer Mario Testino to create the sequel of the Light Blue story. Transmitting the same effortless allure he captures in photographs, it is a postcard of the Mediterranean, its landscape, romance and beauty. The white rubber raft in front of Capri’s famous Faraglioni rocks; and the lovers, their gaze, their kiss, and their pure white swimsuits.
David Gandy: “The Light Blue Ads are now so famous but when I filmed that first one back in 2007, I had no idea how big it was going to be.”
This time the imagery has a retro Mediterranean look, with Bianca dressed in a 50s style bikini of high-waisted briefs and a balcony bra, like the seaside fashion of Capri when Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy holidayed there. The island has always been one of Italy’s most beautiful summer playgrounds and the backdrop to many great love affairs.
When the Designers built on the Light Blue story last year with limited edition scents Living Stromboli and Dreaming in Portofino, they sought inspiration in other enchanting seaside Mediterranean ports close to their hearts. Portofino and Stromboli, where the Designers have homes, are picturesque places that also represent the wild beauty of the Mediterranean with their views, the scent of the air, and the blue shade of the sea.
The Designers are extremely proud of Light Blue’s legacy, which includes 14 fragrance awards. Light Blue recently featured in an exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York as one of the century’s most groundbreaking scents.
“Light Blue fragrances are special because of the many people who cherish them. They wear them and create their own beautiful memories,” say Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.


Light Blue Pour Femme
TOP – Invigorating Sicilian cedar melds with the crisp vibrancy of apple and the guileless charm of the bluebell, to evoke the essence of a South Italian summer.
HEART – The freshness of bamboo nestles amid a glorious feminine bouquet of decadent jasmine and delicate white rose.

This fragrance is inspired by the beautiful and joyful life of the light blue Mediterranean life by discovering their sensual style capturing sun-drenched summer days and dazzling nights, this colorful, fresh, floral-fruity scent reflects the happy bright side of the Mediterranean life. 
The design of the bottle is inspired by the Dolce & Gabbana Parfum, it is strong and confident but still looks feminine.

Light blue pour Homme
Fragrance Notes:
Top – Refreshing bergamot, juicy, sun-drenched Sicilian mandarin, and the clean scent of frozen grapefruit peel and aromatic juniper. Mediterranean Lightness.
Heart – Aromatic rosemary, the subtle spice of Sichuan pepper and sensual rosewood. Strong Masculinity.
Base – An understated blend of American musk wood, incense and oak moss that together gently establish this signature, sensual scent. Innate Sexiness.
This fragrance is aim to capture the sensuality of Mediterranean. “Light Blue pour Homme is made for the Dolce&Gabbana man: sensual and modern, he likes to take care of himself, enhancing his healthy body with sports. The perfume captures the fresh, spicy and sensual scents of the Mediterranean: which we feel is the perfect playground for seduction.” say Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
The flacon for Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme blends the classicism of the shape that evokes the renowned bottle of Dolce&Gabbana Pour Homme with the modernity and the freshness of a frosted glass and a “sky-blue” cap.

Are you trilled for Christmas??

Monday, December 23, 2013

Hello thereeeee
I feel horrible the fact that I haven't been blogging for my own for the past few months,
half of my blog is taken over by sponsored posts and advertorials which I had to balance it out with my daily random post,
and I just think that it isn't my way of blogging so I need to get back on track :)
Since its the sen break now, it is a good chance for me to do things that I want when I have the time to.
And ARE YOU GUYS EXCITED FOR CHRISTMAS??
I am super duper duper excited,
never been so happy before. . . don't know why *o*
had been shopping for christmas presents for my friends and family
and I'm flying off to KL tomorrow, but when you read this post its probably the next day already.
Well, I had been baking cookies yesterday with Wallace,
and they look & taste UH-Mazingggg !
I haven't been baking for years I think ?
and it really scares me to start mixing doughs again, so afraid to mess things up especially when I'm super excited for them...it would be stupid to disappoint myself
tadaaaaaaaaa!!! <3

I had a few molds for these cookies included christmas tree, angels & of course, we can't miss the iconic gingerbread man :)

This 1 is my absolute favorite among the others because the designs aren't as messy. 
we didn't exactly get designing icing tubes, so we made our own with icing sugar, egg white & lemon juice. 
but we faced a little problem when it comes to squeezing out from the plastic that we made ourselves which I think we cut the hole too big...-.-

This 1 is made my Wallace, WHUT-AYE-SURPRISE. 
Ultra man gingerbread man -.-
He made him because there were some left over dough left, so he felt like customizing his own gingerbread man ;D

I even had my nails done in my all time nail sponsor place, Nail Bar Penang, and I super love it!
It looks so festive, I literally can shed a happy tear :')
Look how festive it is !!!!

My thumbs have snowflakes!!! 

Love how they put 2 different colors for my toes :)

And before I end this short post, I would like to share a mini blog video of me & wallace baking the other day, I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I am making it.

Goodnight

Sugar Honey

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Had dinner with the girls ( Carmen Ngo + Claudia ) the other day and we brought Claudia & her lil bro to new lane for some hawker food as she had been away from Penang for 2 years.
Not very exciting to write about this post because its all about food and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed that bowl full of Hokkien prawn noodles while I just work out that day.
What. A. Waste. Of. Energy.
But you couldn't really resist the food when you're staying in Penang...
the food here is UH-mazing and cheap,
I'm so jealous of those KL girls who can save their money and get a freaking hot body.
when you live in Penang for good,
you can't really do that.
However, although I couldn't fulfill my dream of getting a freaking hot & fit body,
it fulfilled Wallace Mak's requirements of chubby cheeks :D
totally Pinchable :))

I didn't really snap a photo of what we had that night for dinner because it is really nothing interesting, at least to me it isn't.
but, we did hang out in a new cafe down town and it jussssssst open 1 day before that,
it is the Sugar Honey cafe,
if you are interested to give it a try, it is right next to Mustache cafe in Chulia streets of Penang.

The main thing is, I love how they decorate the place with a touch of Christmas feeling, 
I'm a bit of an obsessed when it comes to Christmas, I love the tradition of present exchanging, 
and the history behind of it..everything about Christmas is just so beautiful. 
This thing actually can move and it is soooooo cute & Christmassy

How can you resist the beautiful lightings? i mean I really just can't sit there and not take a picture of the environment, and if you noticed, there's a bit of noise in my pictures,
that is because I did not bring my Sony Nex out, and I had to substitute it with my iPhone5 camera, 
but it works pretty well too *for the 1st time* 

They even have a creative version of Christmas tree !! how cute is that?? 

 
One thing about the place that I really love is that the decorations are all so vintage, 
there are even the old oil lamps hanging on the ceiling, 
and some really old pictures on the wall that aren't so scary for the first time. 
I had this weird thought, that everything that is vintage and old is pretty scary, 
because you might not know the complete story behind that object and it might be a little bit filthy....hahahah
this is my first time being comfortable in a vintage decorated cafe :)


And of course, its a self service cafe, they placed the utensils on a few wooden table which has a slight bit of picnic feel.

Well, because it was the 2nd day of opening, 
they had a great promotion of getting a piece of free cake with any purchase of drinks, 
so we ordered 2 drinks, we get 2 cakes for free, 
we ended up choosing the strawberry cake & choco banana cake :)

here are the girls !
Claudia's brother is hiding a side 
hahaha
had such an amazing time with them and I can't wait to hang out with the girls again
