Polka Dotted / Half Moon Manicure.

IMG_9678Can you spot my Seche Vite fast dry top coat? :D Going to do a review on it soon! ( I got a dotting tool too!)

Hmm. I wanted to do a half moon mani, but it didn’t quite work out. The bottom half of the moon, should have been smaller. Because now it just looks like an in between of French mani and half moon mani. I’m definitely going to try to do a another half moon mani, once the sister brings back nail polishes from Korea baby! Haha, I have placed my order. Not much; just a few polishes, stickers, brushes and make up stuff. :) They would be flying off today, and for the next 7 days, I would not have my mom’s home cooked food. :(

Desserts Miniatures.


About a few months ago, I order some really cute lip gloss from United States for my dearest best friend’s birthday. I expected them to arrive slightly after her birthday but it got delayed and only arrived about a few weeks back. The lip gloss came in the form of dessert miniatures and were absolutely adorable. :) And it was perfect for a mini shoot with these cuties.






I wanted to create a series with the last four pictures, but somehow the colour of the wood differs (must be when I was post-processing it) .. so I didn’t put them together as an image. Mom has been suggesting I create a series of pictures, then print it out and place it on the walls of my room. :) What better way to decorate my own room than with my own pictures right? Haha.

Anyway, I must admit that I have always love any food miniatures. There is something about the tiny replicates of food that amuses me. Which is why I’ve been eyeing tonnes of accessories to get from MiniBites. :{) I have a doughnuts and a hamburger earrings already, any suggestions of what I should get next? :)

Who’s That Girl Search by Clinique!

Uh-huh, you read that right! :) Clinique is back with another search after their famed Star Tour, and this one is called Who’s That Girl Search, in partnership with CloveTwo. It is similar to the Star Tour, with a makeover and a “Snap and Win” online voting contest later on, but the best thing about the search this time, is that it is absolutely free of charge.

Yup! All you need to do is head out to the nearest Clinique counter, request for a Who’s That Girl Search makeover and you’ll have the options of choosing from four different make-ups for the different personalities. They have Fashionably Flirty (for the fashionistas out there *squeals* ), Downtown Cool, Classic Chic or Laid-Back Luxe.

I had my make over done today and after it, I am nothing but impressed! I chose the Fashionably Flirty one as I think it suits me and the skirt I was wearing (as described in their brochure). Haha, I’ll attach pictures of the brochures and then you have read up to see which styles suit you best, yea? :) So, anyway, I really liked how Carol who did my make up, she was very sweet and personal. In the sense, that she took the time and effort to talk and explain about the products used and what suits my face, as well.

And oh, after the make over, you’ll have to take two shots of yourself (one close up and a full body one). And after that, upload them to http://clovetwo.com/contest/cliniquewhosthatgirl/.

who is that girlHere is my close up picture. You can really tell the difference. :O Hahaa. How awesome is make up. :)

IMG_9760And my full body picture! Remember the tiered skirt? :) Spot it in the brochure later.

So, have I got you running to the nearest Clinique counter to get your makeover done? Oh, yes. I almost forgot. You’ll even get freebies for joining this make over!

IMG_9753See the scrub and the lip gloss at the right side of the picture? Yeap, that is yours to keep after the makeover. :)

Behind the scenes: Aladdin the Musical.


Have you heard of the latest musical in town? Oh, yes. Aladdin the Musical would be playing in Sunway Lagoon itself! I fondly remember growing up watching this Disney cartoon, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that a musical adaption is being produced right here, in Malaysia. And last weekend, I managed to get behind the scenes of the musical itself, where the cast rehearsed a few scenes and also, toured around the venue of the musical.

IMG_9581If I’m not mistaken, she is the story teller/fairy. Got to love her skirt. :)

Based on the rehearsals, the musical seems very promising and you can be rest assured that the adaption will be an entertaining one. There were songs from Lady Gaga, Travie McCoy and even Katy Perry. An you won’t imagine who was singing these songs. The genie would be the one preforming these songs. Amazed, huh?

IMG_9571The booty-shaking Genie. Trust me, you won’t get enough of him.

Haha, meet the Genie. The Genie character is the most fun and lovable one of them all and he might just steal the spotlight from Aladdin and Princess Jasmine.

IMG_9583And this is Aladdin and Princess Jasmine.

This scene is when Aladdin brought her on the flying carpet, and of course, they sang ‘A Whole New World’, the popular song from Disney’s Aladdin.

We were told by the Mr Aaron himself, that 3D effects would be used during the musical, along with live animals on the stage as well. This was of course, by far the first time ever that anyone have attempted something like this. The animals were currently being trained by the Petting Zoo, Sunway Lagoon. I can’t wait to see the goats, chicken and ducks quacking away. Haha.

IMG_9592The stage currently being set up and if you observe the lights, it is painted with UV light to create a 3D effect.

Oh, I was amazed when I found out that the production team were from Malaysia! Don’t you feel proud already; Malaysia Boleh, baby! And the best thing was, that all the preparation for this musical started a mere 2 weeks ago. When I said all, I meant like from the casting and the rehearsal! Everything in two weeks!

* * * * * * * * * * *

This was the first time I managed to get behind the scenes for a musical and it has been a wonderful teaser. Haha, it certainly did leave me wanting to watch the whole musical and I cannot wait to watch it. So, for those who are interested in getting tickets, here are the details. :)

  • Aladdin The Musical will be playing at the Amphitheatre @ Sunway Lagoon from November 25th, 2011 until January 2nd 2012.
  • The musical will show once a day, from Sunday to Friday at 8:00pm (no show on Tuesdays), and twice on Saturdays at 7:15pm and 9:15pm with extra shows on 25th December 2011 (Sunday) and 1st January 2012 (Sunday) at 7:15pm and 9:15pm.
  • Ticket prices range from RM300, RM250, RM200 and RM100 for adults and RM150, RM120, RM100, and RM50 for children up to 12 years old.


Even though, Boys Like Girls are down to three members, I’m still excited to hear their upcoming latest songs. They were so good with the first self-titled album and then their second, Love Drunk. Their songs helped me through the tough times of high school, through the ups and the downs. I am sadden by the depart of Bryan, who claimed he got kicked out. But the moment he changed his twitter handle from @BryanBLG to @BryanEMB, I felt as though he no longer want to be associated with Boys Like Girls. So, yes. It seemed like his choice, wasn’t it?

Welcome back, Boys Like Girls. You have been severely missed.

Water Marbling: Finally successful!


I actually gave up on water marbling after a disappointing first attempt and a not very successful second attempt. But I have been getting visits to my post on water marbling during my first attempt and it has reached thousands of views already. Quite an achievement for me, so I thought why don’t I give it a try again.

Thankfully, I did and it worked during the first time itself. I’ll be sharing some quick tips on which polish I used. Though, this post is a quickie and I’ll be posting up a full length tutorial once I get my hands on more of Sally Hansen nail polishes! Oh yes, Sally Hansen’s are the only polish that seems to work for me. I have yet to try OPI.

IMG_9483Water Marbling, fresh from the water.

I only have two Sally Hansen’s polishes (Blue It and Green with Envy) at that time, which explains for the weirdly colour combination. Wait till I get my hands on more polishes, then you’ll be seeing better colour combination!

* * * * * * * *

Quick Tips

  1. The water for the nail art should be lukewarm. If it’s cold, most likely the polishes would harden faster.
  2. Use cello tape to tape the edges of the finger so that it won’t end up looking like my finger. :)

Before I end this post, here is a video from CutePolish’s Youtube channel! Her tutorials make nail art seem easy peasy!

Flawed beauty.


“Today, I like a klutz. Actually, I’m a klutz everyday. But, today, just a little more. I am the kind of girl who get cinema halls wrong and I can’t remember numbers well. Can we still be friends? :)”

Two weeks plus since I last blogged, damn. This semester, I’m simply laden with far too many exams, issues and stress. Blogging has taken a back seat on my priorities. But, today, I’ve had it and I decided to have my another Walk in The Park shutter therapy.

* * * * * * * * *

It started out quite disappointing, with the insects flying all over when I tried to take a picture. I kept walking till I passed by a row of neatly trimmed bushes. A few stalks of pink flowers caught my attention, but only for a moment. I walked on straight. A few steps after, I stopped and looked back. There was something about the flowers that was not quite right. It was imperfect, such is the wrath of the insects.

The flower is flawed. It is not hideous, just flawed. Like us all.
