A Home is where the Heart is

I've been thinking about how to do up my room when we officially move to our new place couple streets away. I would like something simple yet intrigued by colors. And I reckon I can have both.

I like a good mixture of vintage and modern just to jazz it up abit. I don't like buying things all from the same store especially when it comes to furniture or clothes. I think assortment is good.

The entire big move was a huge headache because we're literally living out of boxes and buried under them. We'll be living with my mom's friend until the new place is ready. She's such a kind soul to home us. Thank you Auntie.

My mom promised me a list of things for my new room. A new (and bigger) wardrobe, a tv, some shelves and an arm chair. In return for NOT painting my room/or any of my walls, red. I've decided on cream. Oh, I'm also getting a ceiling fan.

Update again on any new room updates, if anyone's reading and wants to know.. check back.

Happy Tuesday. (cept the fact I spilt milo on my desk)

America's Music Awards

Justin Bieber walked away with Best Male Artist, eat that Bieber-haters!

Here are my hits and misses. (Man, love creating these.. lists.)

Rihanna didn't do it for me this time. She's always trying to look different and this time she ended up looking like my puke last birthday after a plate of indian mee goreng and A LOT of drinks. Never wear the same color from top to toe except black. I hear Ronald from McDonald's say he wants his hair back.

Miley Cyrus looks cute in this mini dress and her sparkly Louboutins. But honestly, if you ask me, that long train looks like she stepped out of the bathroom with toilet paper stuck under her shoes.

Oh Hi, Avril! Long time no see. And I reckon after your divorce with your loser husband you decided that you can still be 16 and bad ass? NOT. Majorrrrrrrrrr roll eyes at her pink streaks.

I'm not sure about this piece on Heidi Klum. I like that it's kinda sexy underneath, not showing it all... but it made her look shapeless.

I kind of expected more from Mrs Russell Brands. This pastel pink number looks too sweet and made her look like she extended her wedding to this music event.

Taylor Swift looks so gorgeous here, almost unrecognizable!! Love the new heavy bangs A LOT. The sparkly dress drew a lot of attention to her slender legs too. For once, she doesn't look like a country singer.

I remember the last huge music event, Ke$ha wore somewhat like a trash bag and she's doing it again. Maybe she's trying to tell everyone she's rubbish? Someone should gunny sack her.

Kelly Osbourne is my inspiration to lose more weight. I want to be able to wear a nice black tube dress and look just as good.

Movie: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows (Part 1)

I won't be able to write a proper review for this movie because I haven't read any of the books or followed very closely to the movies but as for the 7th installation, I've to say that I like it very much.

One of the many reasons why the past 6 installations didn't really spark any interest in me to pick up the books and read it because the movies were quite dreadful. The last 6 was kind of slow and they were ALWAYS speaking in riddles. Like a cult. Like if you don't read the books you'll never get what they're saying and I always have this evil image in my head where a group of crazy HP groupies would point their fingers at me and snigger.

However to my surprise, The Deathly Hollows (Part 1) was entertaining, fast paced, action packed and (gasps) witty. The characters had so much chemistry together and they evolved into different persons over the years. I could see how Harry, Ron and Hermoine grew up significantly from movie to movie.

There were parts where they had scary effects like of a horror film, the sort that would scare you suddenly leaving you breathless and I least expect that out of a Harry Potter film. I appreciate the fact that this installation didn't bring non-fans round in circles. The execution was precise and understandable.

I actually am kind of happy that the HP series is coming to an end because it got quite tiresome to watch after awhile. I could see the main cast holding it back letting the cat out of the bag. I'm also looking forward to see how the series will end and whether Evil will ever triumph Good.

Can't wait for Part 2!

Lavin hearts H&M

Am I not cool if I don't blog about H&M and Lavin's collaboration?

Lavin hearts H&M collection has finally hit the stores worldwide. (fml, why isn't there H&M in Singapore?!) We can only feast on pictures taken from Lavin Hearts H&M Haute Couture Fashion Show and Cocktail Party that took place in the New York high fashion scene. "Everyone's taking high fashion to the high street," Albert Elbaz explained beforehand. "I wanted to try to bring the high street back to high fashion." And so he did. Expect extra ruffles, special buttons or doubled up.

Here are some of my favorites:

So. many. leopard. prints. Looking at them makes me perpetually high.
Check out the rest HERE!

Hope you had a good Sunday. I know you slept it away. Me too.

Top 10 girl crushes

I'm not lesbian but I enjoy looking at girls. Been toying with this entry for awhile, just never got down to it. So let's go. Top 10 girl crushes.

(Note: They're of random sequence. I love them all the same. kthanks)

#10: Dita Von Teese

Nobody can rock a piece of lingerie the way she can. Sometimes I think she's so sexy that I think she's untouchable. Hate to look at her like a sex object/icon but seriously, I wouldn't do her because I'm beneath her.

#9: Gong Li

Hi, I love my Asian genes. (I've got so much Asian pride!) Her sex appeal has got nothing to do with her showing her cleavage but it's that aura she has that makes men want to be subdued under her little pinkie. Lastly................ ASIAN PRIDE!!!!!!!!!!

#8: Kim Kardashian

1) She's not stick thin and embrace her curves.
2) She looks hot in ALMOST anything

#7: Keira Knightley

I've loved her ever since I knew of her existence. She has the sexiest and cutest British accent I've ever heard (yet still audible). I like the fact that despite looking almost anorexic (it's genes, my people..), she still looks almost perfect to me. I hope to see her act in anything in the near 2011! Atonement was not enough for me.

#6: Blake Lively (NOT Serena van der Woodsen)

I'm a big Gossip Girl fan and I'm rooting for Blair but Serena always seem to be the eye-catching one. I first spot Blake Lively from Sisterhood of the traveling pants (if you're a girl and you haven't watched it, you should jump off a cliff now) From her hair (which always seem like she just got out of bed!) to whatever she wears, she's a star. She's blonde, blue-eyed and surprisingly very hot. My god, even the way she giggles sounds hot. HUR. Look out for her in Green Lantern!

#5: Katy Perry

I don't care what you say - I like her. I like describing someone as cute and actually mean it. She's cute and sexy at the same time, what more she's also hugely talented. Gotta love her quirky style too! You HAVE to admit it, Perry's songs are of ear worm quality and they get stuck in your head for weeks. It's really just consolation that she's looks incredibly hot doing it. Plz stopz beingz jealouz.

#4: Shu Qi

HAHAHAHAHAHAH ASIAN PRIDE. I really don't care if she did soft porn before. (I'd watch it anyway) But I care the fact that she's so incredibly stunning looking and charming. Though she is not a traditional Chinese beauty, Shu Qi boasts a unique brand of sexiness that is unforgettable.

#3: Lea Michele (HAHA or Rachel Berry!)

This girl can sing. Yes, Rachel may be a little bit annoying (understated) on Glee but I can't take my eyes off her whenever she's on screen. She's a young lady with a talent and to pull that off is already hot. I also kinda like the way she looks - brunette, sun-kissed skin and doe eyed.

But if you must know, behind this talent comes a long list of musicals she has done before and just to name afew: Les Miserables, The Diary of Anne Frank and Spring Awakening

#2: Tyra Banks

She is the woman who invented SMIZING. That's mesmerizing by smiling with your eyes. She's beautiful, talented and a successful business woman. Why is she hot to me? Because I want to be her. Tyra Banks acts as an impressive example for aspiring models and actresses everywhere, and she wears her supermodel title with pride. She will always be my favourite Victoria Secrets Angel.

Fun-fact: In 1996 Tyra Banks was the first black woman to be feature on an Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover.

#1: Carey Mulligan

A writer from Telegraph said she looks like "the most delicate of English roses," a fitting description of this attractive and waifish young actress. She looks so endearingly adorable, it's so HARD not to like her. First noticed her in An Education where she blew me away. I think she's the next upcoming starlet to watch.

Oh and she rocked a short crop very, very nicely.

Ok I had fun doing this list! Maybe I should do 1 every week?

How good is this love


I imagined it not to be like that. Neither is it how I am practising it. Its such a grand word I'm sure not everyone can carry it upon their shoulders. Huge responsibility.

What kind of lover are you?

I'm the sacrificing kind. I'm the kind who would put away everything just to be with you. Now here, is where we don't match. You're not like me.

I wish you were.

Crizal's here to save the day!

Did you know that picking out right lens is just as important as picking out a pair of pretty frames? I never knew until I was given the opportunity to experiment.

I recently took part in an online contest held by Catalog Magazine via Facebook and won myself a free eye test, lens and frames fully provided by Crizal lens. Truth be told, the experience was truly amazing and it made me realize how good lenses can change your vision.

I personally own 3 pairs of glasses and none of them fit me nicely and after some time I stopped wearing them. (HAHA and I managed to fool everyone thinking I've perfect eyesight which is so not true because I always miss the right bus because I can't see shit. I also take a long time standing in the queue ordering food off their big menu on the wall with tiny words. Wtf can see lor? But sorry to those whom I've caused any inconvenience!!) So over time, needless to say my degree got worse. So I was very excited to pick out a new pair of glasses for freeeeee!

I met Daen from Vibes Communications where he sat me down and explained to me what's Crizal lenses all about. He walked me through a couple of experiments where I can clearly see why Crizal lenses are great and different from all the poor quality ones.

So tell me, what are the problems you faced using normal lens? There are the top 5 problems:
  1. Reflections
  2. Scratches
  3. Smudges
  4. Water
  5. Dust
What is so amazing about Crizal lenses is that they target all these 5 problems all in one. You can now have great vision and combat all 5 of these enemies!


Crizal lens reduce glare from your surroundings to reduce eyestrain and fatigue for optimal comfort of vision. Reflections on your lens will also be minimized to enhance lens aesthetics. If you happen to love being under the sun a lot, this is great for you because you do not need to worry about not being about to see well under glaring sunlight. And this does not apply only in the day. If you love going for night cycling, it is helpful too!


Crizal lens are made of tough materials to reduce scratches from daily wear. Hello, if you're just as chor lor as I am, please use Crizal! HAHA. (Sounds super boot licking but I'm really not lying.) Ok let's be serious, sometimes I don't EVEN know where I got those scratches from on my glasses or watches because accidents happen everyday at anytime of the day. You can't minimize it unless you don't go out lor. *roll eyes*


Crizal lens are also made of easy-to-clean lens ensures that smudges and fingerprints do not hinder transparency of the lens. Do you get easily annoyed when no matter how hard to try to clean off fingerprints from your lenses and it just doesn't seem very clean after wiping? Say no more, you've found your solution. :D


Here's the beauty of Crizal lenses: you can wear them and play WATER SPORTS. With unique water repellent feature, water droplets rapidly slide off the lens surface without leaving any trace. There are just people who don't like the idea of contact lenses but yet love playing water sports. Now you can have the best of both worlds!


Let's take 1 experiment Daen showed me which I'm super amazed:

Take a look at this styrofoam ball experiment Daen showed me. These tiny balls represent dirt particles/dust in the air and it is inevitable to have them collected on your glasses anywhere you go (at home/work/partying/out in the sun), everywhere! Take a close look - when we shook the box, I realized that there are LESS dirt collected on Crizal lenses as oppose to a normal one. You cannot eliminate dust completely unless you live in outer space but what Crizal lens can do for you is reduce attraction of dust particles even after cleaning with its Anti-static lens.

After the demo, I proceed to have my eye test!

We were done in about 15 minutes or so and here comes my favorite part: PICKING OUT A PAIR OF FRAMES OF MY CHOICE. *swoons* There were so many to choose from. I was spoilt for choice. Eventually I picked out one a pair of black frames with green interior.

It was a great experience to know of such a wonderful product and you know what? I'm a convert. It's my 2nd week wearing my new pair of glasses with Crizal lenses now and it's been perfect. It's comfortable and it really helps to combat all 5 of those problems we face. I'd recommend Crizal lens to all my friends and family. In fact, I convinced my dad to change his to Crizal lenses too! It feels awesome to live life in the clear.

Thank you Crizal, Catalog Magazine and Vibes Communication for giving me this opportunity. I had a lot of fun. :)

Star of the Week - Emma Watsons

I used to not know why I never really liked Emma Watsons. I know she's THE Hermoine. The hair, the face, the body and the voice screams star quality by all of you Harry Potter Fans.

But... today I finally knew why she was never on the top of my list though I do agree she's gorgeous.

... It's the hair.

I know she's almost everyone's favourite as THE Hermoine. I agree she's cute.. but nay... Emma Watsons just never quite did it for me. I hate the fact that almost every female star fell in that stereotype circle of having long hair only because it made her look hot, sexy, cute or feminine. And cutting their hair is like A HUGEEEEE DEAL to female stars who are not brave enough to take the leap or simply just don't look good in it. It came as a surprise to me that Hermoine was one of those girls who could pull of both.

She's got the Twiggy thing going on *mad love*

You like? I LOVE IT. I agree it's kind of a huge step for her to take because it might turn away male fans but I think Emma Watsons is at a stage where she's almost a woman and ready to take on different roles that could significantly change her life and strip her off "Hermoine" and be Emma Watsons. And I think that's extremely hot.
