Love, Rosie

What kind of a lover are you?
Will you put your ego down for the one you love?
I find there are two types.
One is the stubborn, egoistic one who never want to back down.
One is the reasonable, understanding one who would give in.

 You know, I still receive emails about the "don't be jealous of your partner's ex gf/bf" post.
Some guys thank me because I made their girlfriend understand.
Some girls thank me for making them understand.
Yeh, I know, very flattering, I'm happy that I can help.
I think I was a bad tempered girlfriend, I've learnt now and I want to do better.
I've never been so calm, I'm just really calm now.
Somehow, I feel there's no need for argument.
Well, I don't know yet because I'm not in a relationship, I'm just seeing someone.

I have so many egoistic girl friends, I think, I guess.
They never back down, they don't back down, they don't give in.
Sometimes, I really wonder how they do it, my salutations.
This is the first type - the "I don't give a fxxx" type.
"Oh yeah, you don't text me? I'm not going to text you."
"Oh yeah, you're not sorry? Don't expect me to be sorry."
Lol, normally in this case, I'd just go like "can you both just make up already?"
They can just be really fine and really just not give a damn about it.

The second type - I don't even know what to call this type.
The soft ones, I guess.
I think I'm this type, most of the time.
I'd want to reason, there's no need for argument, there's space for discussion.
That's my moto, just tell me if you're not happy, lol.
鬥氣很累耶 得來的是甚麼?

There's no such thing as win or lose in this.
Quoting John Legend, "even when I lose, I'm winning..."
Don't know what that means?
Shiet, maybe I'm just too unrealistic and a hopeless romantic.

I'm not saying that women should put down their ego or dignity for a man.
Of course, you still gotta keep your head up and maintain that class.
Being classy isn't playing "hard to get", being classy is having respect for yourself, for others.
You know what to do, when to do, how to do and when to stop.
You know what to say, when to say, how to say and when to stop.
Hahaha, I talk so much but I don't even know what I'm doing.

Watched this movie lately, loved it!
Spoiler alert, don't read if you haven't watched the movie.
Watch the movie first, then continue reading.
I've been waiting for this movie Love, Rosie.
Starring the gorgeous Lilly Collins and hot hunk Sam Claflin
Ashley first showed me the trailer, I fell in love when High Hopes played at the background.
Dayum, good choice of soundtrack.
This song gets to me all the time, of course, it hit me again when I watched the trailer.
Again, the choices of soundtracks are well made.
I don't know what's the title of the song played during Rosie's wedding.
Special, not normal for a scene like that but it hits you.
Especially when Rosie's daughter and her friend were listening to it on earphones.
The 1975's Chocolate was featured too, niceeeeee...

"It was no ordinary friendship, we were inseparable, constantly being separated."
"I've realized that no matter where you are or who you're with,
I will always, truly, completely, love you."
That "Best Woman" speech, oh my...

I had so much in my head on the way out of the theatre.
Too bad I didn't have my laptop with me the other day.
Every inspiration is gone, oh no, why?

I guess all I want to say is...
There's no winning or losing in a relationship.
You need to put your ego down sometimes to make things work.
Not for the sake of making things work but for the person you love.
You miss your chance guarding your EGO.
You ego is sooooooooo important that you would risk losing something so special.
Again, 有時候別磚牛角尖 別太執著
You might be looking at the world's most beautiful and wonderful thing.
Something that's going to mean so much to you.

Just tell him you miss him.
Just tell her you feel special for her.

Good luck, xx.

Vas happeninz

Hey! I'm sorry!
I've been very busy, it's so tiring but it's going to worth all my effort.
I'm working towards my goal. It's happening, it's really happening.
I give my all, everything, all I have, it's very stressful.
I seldom get pimples but I get them on my forehead a lot lately.
I don't know, blame it on the period.
What am I talking about?

Let me just summarize how my month went.

Marques Almeida x Topshop

GBGTV x Twenty3
Magazine and leaflets photoshoot.
I almost, almost do not do photoshoots because I'm not good with it.
I normally turn down photoshoot but if my nanny says I have to do it, I have to.
I don't know why, I can "selfie" all day err day but just not photoshoot.
My individual shoot that day was horrifying because I don't know how to pose and shiet.
Everyone just told me to be confident.
Lol, I want to but I don't know how to but anyway, the day was through.
 I learnt something, I guess... I learnt that I should never waste opportunities.
Did a photo and video shoot for charity, I'll share it when it's out!

You can see how thick the make up was from this picture, lol.

Fake lashes too heavy, Imma just close ma eyez.

"Flawless" skin shizz nit.

If you wonder where Nana went.
She was the last one to put on her make up.
So, we were having some fun while waiting, haha!

Zalora Malaysia x Book of Life
One of the most tiring days, gothic look to suit the theme.
The highlight of the day :
Ash and I being kiddy, playing with the coolest auto seats in TGV Indulge.
Ash and I get really really really childish sometimes, hahaha.
You don't want to see how we laugh little stupid things, yeh, it's not normal, lol.

Spending too much on food and coffee.
You can see more on my Instagram about some pretty cool places I went to.
 Instragram is more convenient to share things, quick and simple.

Ain't nobody got time to wash hair.
I'm joking, I wash my hair everyday.
I don't know why I keep going off topic today, lol, just, stay with me~

Went to catch Yiruma live in Malaysia.
Oh yes, it was fantastic, fan-tas-tic.
It was incredible, one my the best shows I've ever seen.
Everyone was so serious in the hall but my head just kept swaying along with his piano playing.
His music touches my heart and soul, every single one of them.
I was like am I not serious? why is everyone so serious? I'm enjoying the music too.
Why is everyone so serious? why does everyone sit so still? they don't feel the music?
I guess all I wanted to say was that I couldn't help moving along, lol.

Thanks to Melvin and Swaggaboi6989 for the photo opportunity with Yiruma.
I was really excited to meet him, I didn't even know what to say.
What? You jelly? Well, you should be.
Hahahahaha, I'm joking.

I feel really lucky to be in touch with things that are related to music.
So so so lucky.
As much as I want to continue, I need to go get ready for dinner.
Bringing my mum out for some nice food.
I'll blog about a movie that inspired me lately.
Also, more about music.
Woohoo, wait for me!

Do you say I love you easily?

You know what?
Sometimes I don't like telling people what I do and that I'm a blogger.
Bloggers often get judged as superficial, materialistic, "do not have a real job" and "living the life".
My life is high profile but trust me, I try to be as low profile as I can be.
I'm not a fashion blogger even if I want to be one.
I'm not a travel blogger either, more a lifestyle blogger.
Someone called me a writer...
I was happy, hahaha, so happy to be called a writer.
When people ask me what do I blog about, I say.. my life.. just my life, nothing special.
When people ask for my blog address, I refuse to tell, cause my blog is so freaking personal.
I feel embarrassed and exposed.
Ahhhh, you won't get it!
Blaaaa, what am I talking about, I'm a blogger.
It's public, everyone gets to see it, duh.

Anyway, I guess I should give myself more credit.
Next time when someone asks me what do I blog about.
I'm going to say that I'm a lifestyle blogger who writes about life and relationships ;)
Macam yes kan? Okeh, ons.

Tonight's talk.
Do you say I love you easily?
This happened to my Aussie girl friend, it sorta inspired me.
She has been seeing this guy for a while.
They click so well, so much in common, they like each other a lot.
You don't have to go near them to feel the chemistry.
He makes time to see her, he sees her whenever he can.
He makes her very happy, he makes her laugh.
Girl made guy promise that he won't say "I love you" before he's sure about it.
Girl also promised that she is not going to say those three words easily.
One night, this guy sent her home.
She was rushing to get out of the car without thinking much.
She uttered "thanks for today, good night, please drive safe, I love you".
 Oh shit, she gasped and covered her mouth with her hand.
Thinking "what the hell did I just say?"
"I didn't mean it, I meant, not I don't mean it but I just... it's... I... shiiiiiiet."
She shut the door without giving the guy a chance to say anything and paced fast.
He winded the car window down, gave her a very cheeky smile.
"Hey, I will pretend that I didn't hear it."

Lol, that was cute.

Do you say I love you easily?
Hmmm, I used to say it a lot, I'm a pretty expressive person when it comes to... love.
You know, sometimes you treasure someone, you want to let him/her know.
"I love you" seems... less meaningful now because people say it too easily.
Ok, you say "I love you" because you mean it, yeah I know.
You can say it very often but you shouldn't say it too easily.
"I love you" is not a promise but think about it, it kinda is.
No idea, it's just a dangerous phrase.
Sometimes we forget how we FELT about what we said so soon, so soon...
You get it?
Sometimes we forget how we feel about what we say so soon.
Don't get it? Read it again.
Sometimes we forget what we feel when we say something that feels special, we forget so soon.
You might have felt it last week but you might not feel it the next week.
So, why, why say it easily?
Why risk breaking people's heart?

Well, here comes the contradiction again.
Sometimes, it's just hard to be controlled.
Sometimes, it's uncontrollable.
My friend just let the 3 words slipped without even meaning to say them.
The 3 words just slipped, not because she didn't mean it.
She meant it, she adores the guy but she didn't mean to say it out loud.
Yet, she just said it, naturally, involuntarily, it's reflexive.
What can I say?
Love is in the air?
You can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.
You just feel it.
She tried to suppress it but...
Love 1 : 0 My friend

有時候不要太執著 順其自然
Sometimes you wonder, you keep restricting yourself to feel, to accept what you feel...
Is it self protection or is it just your ego?
Put your ego down, let yourself feel it.
It might be something real and wonderful.

Best wishes to both, xx.
