Miss independent

How's everyone doing?
Sorry for the inefficiency, here's a random post for you.
I've been busy, not cool with it because it's not productive enough to me.
I want it and I need it to be ultra productive.
(I notice that I like to use the word "ultra" recently, lol)
Anyway, I've also been sick, not sick-sick now, it's just that I'm not fully recovering.
I can't jam, I can't sing, if you actually notice that I haven't been really making singing instavideos.
I don't control what I eat with the skinny gene I have, definitely not bragging, it's true.
I take my throat and my body for granted.
I'VE BEEN TRYING very hard to cut down on fried food.
Ok, not very hard, come on, at least I'm trying.
Everyone should know by now that my favourite food is fried chicken, lol.

I flew to Singapore alone last 2 days for work.
It was hectic and... pretty scary.
I wanted to look for my Singaporean friends but I decided that I really needed some rest.
So, I stayed in my hotel room and slept at 10pm.
I constantly woke up between hours, I don't know why.
Mum randomly called me at 2am, she called to ask if I'm okay.
I was like yeh, mum, it's 2am, are you out of your mind? Go to bed, mum.
Guess she suddenly missed me or she had a nightmare, just doing her mother thing.
 The thing is I did inform her when I landed and when I reached the hotel.
She called me at 2am, lol. She. Called. Me. At. 2am.
I think I'm happy that she called.
She didn't say anything but I felt her tough love.
My mum seldom makes me feel this way.
She's just... tough. So. Tough.

I normally take the aisle seat but I love the window seat sometimes.

Anyway, got up at 7.30am to get ready for the photoshoot and videoshoot.
Pain of the month struck sharp at 8am.
Come, I clap for you, uterus, what a great job you've done.
I felt like a corpse throughout the whole day.
I didn't even bother taking any pictures of myself at the shoot.
Wait... I did.
Helloz? Yez? Potato I iz.
Oh my, I looked ultra terrible.

ps : photographer of the day looks like John Legend.
I find that really amusing, I'm easily amused, so amused, lol.
I just wanted to burst out in laughter when I looked at him but I kept it cool...
Ya know? Just tryna keep it cool, keep it professional yo! 
Lol, rushed to the airport, rushed back home.

Here I am, getting tortured by my uterus now.
I think I invented new Yoga positions today, lol.
Thank goodness, I got a full day of rest.
I feel so much better but still, not cool, uterus, not cool, I do not like you when you do that war.
 Ok, too much.
I should sleep, love you all, xx.

MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014

Just sipping on Sailor Jerry cocktail.

MTV World Stage is back in Malaysia again!
Lineups included Thaitanium, Boys Republic, Yuna and B.O.B.
Thanks to Sailor Jerry for the VIP invites!!!

My friends and I went early just for some Carribean spiced rum.
Sailor Jerry Spiced is blended with 100% natural spices and flavours.
It's inspired by the American tattoo legend Norman 'Sailor Jerry' Collins.
I really love how they package and present their brand, as you know I drink and I love tattoos.
Sailor Jerry made its debut to the Malaysian market via MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014.
(Well, I had Sailor Jerry all the time when I was studying in Aussie :x)
Anyway, Sailor Jerry is finally here in Malaysia.
They are one of the main sponsors for MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014.

I was very impressed with their booth set up near the stage, coolest set up ever!
Embodies the independent spirit and unapologetic attitude of the rum's namesake
who was noted for saying "my work speaks for itself".
Two words, wicked cool.

Sailor Jerry supports originality and individuals who express themselves creatively.
Yup, me, talking about me, absolutely me, hahahaha.

Tattoo anybody?

Cheers, guys and girls!

Great performances done by Thaitanium and Boys Republic.
They took on the stage first.

It was then Yuna who came on, I screamed my lungs out!
Always rooting for our local star, I look up to her, I want to be like her.
She succeeded, she made it in the UK and the US.
Love her music, lover her personality, love her elegant looks.
So proud of Yuna, MALAYSIA BOLEH!!!
I was hoping that she would sing Lullaby.

"Beautiful girls, all over the world, I could be chasing
but my time would be wasted, cause they got nothing on you..."
 Give it up for B . O . B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a really good time!
We rocked from noon till late night (:

That's just how we do!

Youth is wasted on the young?

I'm supposed to do my work now.
I don't know what I'm doing here.
I went to Jordan Belfort's seminar today.
I saw young people everywhere, like really young, younger than me, lol.
This world is changing.
Our pace is getting faster and faster.
The young ones are becoming more capable and they are eager to succeed.

I don't have many friends.
My girl friends are on track, have their own life, doing the adult stuff.
A friend of mine who was "famous" in our school because we were seniors.
He used to sit beside me, he pretty much copied 98% of my homework, lol.
He liked bullying me, wasn't real bullying, he loved teasing me and shit..
(You know the high school stuff, lol.)
Although he liked to make fun of me but he was the one who stood by me all the time.
Nobody sat with me for lunch, he did.
He was there for me, he recently just came back from the UK after graduating.
Time flies, so fast, so so so fast, he's back for good.
Yesterday, I was in high school getting "bullied" and today, I'm outside fighting for life.
He just flew off to India and he will be flying to Sri Lanka after two weeks in India.
I don't know why, I just feel so PROUD of him, I'm so proud.
Yesterday, he was the captain of blue house and today, he's a business man.
So proud, so so proud.
 I just realized that we are all grown ups now.
I meant, I know I am a grown up since eighteen but sometimes people don't accept it.
Some people will say that I have plenty of time because I'm at my twenties.
 I always feel like I'm not doing enough for my age.
I have a big goal to hit and I have a big dream to chase after.
I have no time and I need more time.
1. Don't waste time.
Fill your every day with something.
Fill it in with something, anything.
 If you're free for the day, go for coffee with friends, read a book, go jogging.
Do something about it.

2. Sleep is not for the weak.
People say sleep is for the weak.
It's true that we need to full utilize our time but no, it's absolutely wrong to say sleep is for the weak.
I rather sleep, I love to sleep, if I can, if I could.
I hate it when my brain, my neurons won't stop working at late night.

3. There's no such thing is "I CAN'T SLEEP".
Yeh, I can't sleep sometimes, I couldn't sleep last night.
If you can't sleep, it means you're not tired enough.
My sister sleeps at 10pm every freaking day because she gets up early for work.
She's tired, she sleeps, she can sleep, she falls asleep easily, she sleeps early because she's really tired.
Don't believe? Try being up since 6am and work through the day (not asking you to slack all day).
Work, work, work, have dinner, some music, shower, some work or entertainment.
Tell me if you can't sleep, then that's really insomnia, consult your doctor, thanks.

4. Worrying is for the weak.
Haha, I'm guilty of this.
I worry so much, I keep thinking, thinking and thinking.
That's why I can't sleep.
That leads to the next point.

5. Be mentally strong.
Lol, how to be mentally strong?
No, I don't have an answer for you.
You need to experience it yourself, then you'll know.
How to experience it?
 Do everything yourself, do everything on your own.
That's where you learn independence and you'll be strong.

What is this shit? Lol.
I suddenly feel like I'm a motivational speaker.
I don't know if my points even made sense.

Today's song will be Lost Stars by Adam Levine.
My friend first let me listen to Keira Knightley's version, I thought it was okay.
Another friend told me to listen to this song again, by Adam Levine.
I searched for it, I found it really familiar, then I recalled it's the same song.
Now you see, every singer sings differently.
I like Adam Levine's soulful high pitch voice for the bridge of the song.
"So much feels......"
 This song wasn't written by Adam Levine, but it was written for a movie.
It's so well written, it's very well composed.
It is the original soundtrack for the movie "Begin Again".

 "Please don't see, just boy caught up in dreams and fantasies"
The first line of the song has already given me goosebumps.
What I perceived from the lyrics and watching the video clip was
a young man works very hard to chase after his dream,
at the same time, missing a relationship with a woman who stood by him through thick and thin.
So much to say about this song but I think I should go to bed.
Can't believe I took almost two hours to type this post, it's not that easy, kay?
I leave it to you to think about it, every song touches people's heart differently.
Think about life, think about time, appreciation, think about the person you love.

Good night, xx.

I'm ultra-blessed

Hmmmm, I have so much in mind.
I don't know how to put them in words.
Let me have my music therapy and driving therapy.
Lol, I think a lot when I drive.

Let's do a casual posting today.
I'm sick again.
How many times have I been sick this year?
Why? What a "sick" year!
I can't sing, my nose is blocked (It's not like I can sing when my nose isn't blocked, haha)
Sore throat, cough, runny nose, disgusting mucus, lol.
I popped panadols yesterday, didn't work.
I went to the pharmacy to get some flu medicine today.
I'm not feeling any better.

Went for a meeting with Jane the other day.
I like coffee and I like to chill at coffee places. I feel so old.
Anyway, didn't get any pictures of the coffee and cakes on my camera.
Dayummmm, but I got one on Instagram.
I spilled my coffee and I came up with a quote.
OMG, I'm a genius, lol.

 Coffee place : Feeka in Changkat.

We both felt really lazy, it was a Saturday.
No idea why. Just pulled on a white tee and shorts.
Lazy or casual? 傻傻分不清楚
Just doing the blogger thang.
"Is this pose okay?"

"Erm, hunch your back!"
"Lol, ok."

I love my new shoes, I meant creepers.
 I got them at Topshop in Sydney.
Soooooo prettayyyyyyyyyy to me.

 We headed to Pavilion because Nana wanted to have dinner together.
We didn't know what to do while waiting for the princess.
We had 2 cups of coffee before, so it was enough of caffeine.
I said let's hide out in the bookstore, I really like to do that, lol.

Bumped into more than 5 readers who asked for a picture that day.
It was crazy and overwhelming.
Met one, she's really cute.
She came and said hi, then she stared at us for 5 seconds without saying anything.
Cutest person ever.
 I'm such a lucky person, I get to make people happy for 5 minutes sometimes.
Wow, ultra-blessed.

Lucky girl is feeling lucky.
Thank you all, xx.

Skin pampering of the month

Today, I'm going to blog about Mon Amour skincare.
I first know of this brand when I slept over my girl friend's place.
I didn't bring my own skincare products and I had to use hers.
All I can remember is that Mon Amour smells good, haha.

Anyway, I use the skincare products before I do a review about it.
I've been using whole range of Mon Amour products for more than 2 weeks now.
I don't know if you know that I'm a fan of snail cream.
The snail cream I used before came from Thailand and Korea.
Mon Amour is a product of France, 100% natural ingredients.
It uses a secret Snail formula that heals wounds and scars, also improves skin condition.
More information on Mon Amour's Facebook.

Lol, Alicia is on their TVC!

Mon Amour actually means "my love" in French.
Haha, I just thought it was interesting...
As usual, cleanser, toner, moisturizer and mask are basic necessities nowadays.
Mon Amour Snail Mucin Toner, Facial Treatment Cleanser, Hydrate Moisturizer, Collagen Gel Mask.

Snail Mucin Facial Treatment Cleanser.
I like how it's easily washed off, unlike some other face wash that takes forever to be rinsed off.
It helps unclogging pores and helps preventing acne.

I always liked to skip the step of applying toner and I shouldn't anymore.
 Snail Mucin Active Toner contains natural oil fighting formula and helps tightening pores.
I like the pump-like packaging, easy to be used.
Just give the toner a few pumps and use a cotton pad.
I often use a cotton pad to see how clogged my pores are and how I cleaned them up.
You can see the black impurities on the cotton pad, thanks to the terrible haze in Malaysia.

Hydrate Moisturizer and Snail Collagen Gel Mask.
 Hydrate moisturizer is an age-defence moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated all day.
 Snail Collagen Gel Mask is an anti-aging, anti-wrinkles mask that allows skin rejuvenation.
I drink collagen everyday for beauty and health purposes.
Might as well just apply it on my face, GIVE ME ALL THE COLLAGEN!

How to use Snail Collagen Gel Mask?
Thoroughly clean and dry face before applying.
Lie back and relax for 30 minutes, then rinse it off with water.
You can refrigerate the Gel Mask for cool facial spa treatment.
I tried this myself and I love it, very cooling and refreshing.

I love the texture of Mon Amour products.
They are soft and smooth.
It's not the rich-cream texture like but in fact, rich in vitamins needed.

Feel like the pores on my skin have been tightened.
My face smells really good too, haha!

You can get Mon Amour skincare products directly from the official distributor.
