Red Juicy Lips

I was inspired, after watching Xiaxue's Angelababy-inspired lips video here, to rock red lips myself.
Here is my own take on achieving red juicy lips. 

Lipliner  : RIMMEL Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner 063 Eastend Snob (very nude pinky mauve)
Lipstick : MAYBELLINE Moisture Extreme Lip Color 97 Roseberry (berry red - cool-toned shade)
Lipgloss : NYX Mega Shine Gloss Perfect Red (perfect red, indeed!)

Blogging Challenge - 12 April - 'L'

Do you know the expression 'LAME'...?
When you call someone 'LAME' or reply someone by saying 'Gosh, you're so LAME'...
But, how do you define what 'LAME' means? Well, what does it REALLY mean?

You definitely cannot find this definition of 'LAME' via because here is the first definition of the word 'LAME'.

Main Entry:lame
Part of Speech:adjective
Definition:unable to walk properly

But, the Urban Dictionary defines 'LAME' as... just plain stupid, unoriginal.

So, which do you prefer to be called?

For me, neither!!! :P

Blogging Challenge - 11 April - 'K'

K. I ran out of ideas today. Really. 
How about... K for KARDASHIAN!!!

Do you know who the Kardashians are? :P
If you do, do you like them?
If you don't, please do a Google search on them! Hahaha!

I personally think that they are a very pretty-looking family. As in beautiful. Great skin and very nice hair too. BUT, this does not mean I like how this family runs. If you watch the family's reality show, you would know what I mean. :)

Pretty, right? Hahahaha!

Blogging Challenge - 10 April - 'J'

J for JUICE.

Fruit juice to be exact!
My favorite juices are : apple, orange, carrot, watermelon, honeydew and great hog plum.

"WHAT IS A GREAT HOG PLUM?", you might ask.

Anyways, a great hog plum is also known as the ambarella fruit (buah kedondong in malay).
It is a little sour fruit that is usually eaten with sweet shrimp paste.
Or, the fruit could be pulped and made into juice - and that's the way I like it better!

Here are some pictures (credits to the rightful owners of these pictures).

The Ambarella fruit up-close and personal
(looks so green and good!)

Pickled Ambarella
(it is really sour on its on so people enjoy the pickled fruit
more than the fresh fruit itself)

So, I hope you guys learned something new today. 
AMBARELLA (just UMBRELLA really), also known as the GREAT HOG PLUM!

Blogging Challenge - 8 April - 'H'


What makes you happy? Money? Love? Food?
And how do you measure happiness? 

If money makes you happy, does that mean : 
A lot of money = a lot of happiness = very very happy
A little bit of money = still happy but not that happy



If food makes you happy, does that mean by eating a lot equals a very happy you?

Wikipedia referenced "HAPPINESS" from this site stating : 
HAPPINESS is a mental state of well-being characterized by positive emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.

Well, I am not very happy today. Reason being : An unknown person, who by the looks of it is very happy, just made another person's day an unhappy one which results in me being unhappy as well. Here's the story:

I was parked behind a VIVA, waiting in the car for a friend to pack dinner. In front of the VIVA was a pretty narrow empty space. Along comes a BMW wanting to park at the narrow empty space. The driver does a left-hand-side parking - shifts into reverse, zooms into the space and pushing the VIVA back. It was a SUPER loud bang and imagine the impact there was for the VIVA, parked there, to being pushed towards the back - where I was. The driver of the BMW was so ignorant - he could not care less if there was damaged done to the VIVA. He happily parked his car and did not bother to get down from his BMW. Instead, he wound down his window and was totally relaxed with his two dogs as if nothing had happened. Just. Like. That. He did not even care about the witnesses around to say that he was in the wrong. If he ever was confronted, he would probably just take some cash out, give it to the VIVA driver and leave. Such a person, I believe, is happy for all the wrong reasons. 

Why is there such a person in this world? Please tell me. I am unhappy. And agitated. I.Want.To.Slap.Him. I have been thinking. What if I was the VIVA owner? What would I have done? What would YOU have done?

Blogging Challenge - 3 April - 'C'

Today's alphabet is - C.

C for CELLNIQUE. Have you guys heard of this brand before? When I first did, I thought it was just trying to be the next CLINIQUE - kind of a copycat if you look at the name, right? Anyways, I first discovered this brand of high-end skincare line about 18 months ago from My Women Stuff and I eventually got a sample of the brand's infamous Skin Action Sebum Gel. I fell in love with it right after and have purchased three full-sized bottles since. One bottle will last me about six months with two applications daily.

What this Sebum Gel does is, it reduces blackheads/whiteheads significantly and by significantly I mean... A LOT! I cannot go a day without putting this on my face. It is an essential in my skincare routine. I do not have before and after pictures to show you (sorry about that) so I guess you guys have to take my word for it! :P But please do read reviews and see pictures on other blogs because the Skin Action Sebum Gel really really does work! 

I do want to try other products from this brand but it's pretty pricey for me at the moment so I guess that will have to wait. Have you guys tried CELLNIQUE before? What's good and what's not?

By the way, CELLNIQUE did not pay me to do this!!! It's just part of the blogging challenge that I decided to talk about it. 

Till then...

Blogging Challenge - 2 April - 'B'

Today's alphabet is - 'B'.
'B' for BIRTHDAY, of course! It's my birthday today! Hip Hip Hooray!
After receiving the birthday wishes via Facebook wall posts and mobile text messages, I can very well say that I FEEL THE LOVE! I have family and friends who care. So, THANK YOU EVERYONE.

'B' is also for BARRY M. My good buddy, Min just got back from the UK and she helped me purchase two bottles of Barry M Nail Paint - one is the black Nail Effects and the other is a limited edition color #030. 
So the current trend for nails is the crackle/shatter/effects nails. What you do is to paint the crackle/shatter/effects polish on top of a base color and it will crackle/shatter/effects up to give a pretty funky nail look. I am not explaining it very well. Haha! Just check out the pictures below.

Totally cool, right? I actually recorded a video but Blogger won't upload it. :( I will probably host in on YouTube and attach a link here. :)

Anyways, I will C you tomorrow for another post. *winks* Till then...
