Be in a relationship.

No kidding, I lost 7 to 9kgs 2 years ago for my sponsorship with Aimin Accupunture (you can read my older posts), but since then, I have gained back almost 5kgs!!!! This is all my boyfriend’s fault, well, not really. I guess that is the effect of being in a happy and blissful relationship!

It is so difficult to lose weight, especially at the start of the relationship, since you are spending your meals with your loved one. I think Carbonara sprinkled with XOXO tastes especially good! I guess soon I will have to start some sort of exercise regime to trim down, although we have both agreed to go on a healthy diet (pizza nights are not helping at all!)

:)

I love you

P.S. this post does not include a picture of myself LOL. I’ll do so when I feel less bloated ;P

I was so elated when I won the Laneway Festival Meet and greet session with The Jezabels! My dearest bought tickets for me to accompany him to the festival this year and in return, we got to meet his favourite band The Jezabels and spoke to them for 10 minutes :D They are really friendly and nice people, and Hayley Mary (lead singer of the band) sang so well that day. She dances really strangely on stage, but it was really cool to watch her enjoying herself and jamming to their songs (and my dear’s favourite songs too!).

Five Star Tours was reported to be shut down today, including all 7 of their branches. According to WanBao, all their branches were closed and gates shut.

That comes as quite a shock as Five Star Tours has been around for a few years and have been providing many coach and tour packages in Singapore. I wonder when companies closes down like this, what happens to the consumers that already paid for their tour packages?! Unfortunately, I have experienced similar incidents like this where I paid up for services but when the private limited companies closes down, you can’t claim a single cent back. You can try filing it with small claims tribunal – but seriously good luck with getting any money back.

When I heard about the Samurai on the MRT, my first thought was it must be a cosplayer. After all, there were a whole bunch of them on Sunday for the End Of Year Cosplay Festival at the Marina Barrage, probably someone didn’t want to remove their costume.

Turns out, you can own a katana in Singapore, but only to keep in your own house

“You can import a Samurai sword through a forwarding agent, who should declare it through the Tradenet system. For more details, please log on to https://www.tradexchange.gov.sg. You may be required to bring the sword to a police station for inspection before an import licence can be issued. If it is hand carried, you should declare it to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority at the point of entry. The sword may be impounded for inspection and you can claim it from the Police Station which has jurisdiction over the entry point. Please note that if you are allowed to possess the sword, it must be kept in a dwelling house and not to be carried in any public place without any lawful purpose.” taken from http://www.spf.gov.sg/licence/AE/FAQ/AE.html

Huifen knows my hair best and she’s not afraid to tell me what I need and what I don’t, after all she has been my appointed hairstylist for the past 6 years! If you see that many of my past pictures have a similar haircut, it’s because she knows I like them ;x Occasionally, she does some adventurous stuff to my hair, but mostly – especially since I’m working full-time now, she can’t be too adventurous with it. My this trip to Salon de Choix was one of those. She cut my hair into a neat pixie haircut (shortest it has been this year!) and coloured my hair by touching up the roots only.

Huifen Salon de choix (1)

This time we decided that my colour was still nice and suited my current hairstyle. In order to protect my hair from the chemical damages of dying it every month, Huifen decided that it was better to do a “root touch-up” instead – dying only the “new” hair since my last hair dye. To give my scalp more protection before colouring, she applied L’Oreal Stillcap Scalp Protector on my scalp. 45 minutes after colouring my roots with a matching dark hazel colour, she used water to dilute the remaining hair dye and to soaked the rest of my hair in the same dye to freshen up the previously dyed hair.

Huifen Salon de choix (2)

Lastly, after blow drying my hair, she added Kérastase Elixir Ultime Oléo-Complexe to add that extra shine to my newly dyed and cut hair. Love it!!!

Not only is touching up colour cheaper than normal dying of the whole head, my highlights are not covered up and still obvious, and most importantly, my hair isn’t as damaged (as compared to if I dyed whole head every month). “When hair has been colored using hair dye, the roots tend to be the first places to show it, since that is where the new hair comes in. A root touch-up is simply an application of hair dye to the roots of the hair, to disguise the fact that hair has grown out, and to make a hair coloring last longer.” Taken from this website

I couldn’t help giggling while watching the video of the fight between a keychain vendor and the security guard from The Cathay. From various websites, it was said that the security guard told this guy that he could not sell key chains outside of the shopping mall without a permit, and the other guy started to get violent. The security guard has a black belt in taekwando, and the vendor looks like he watched too many Jacky Chan kungfu movies and wanted to bust some moves.

I think what was most commendable, as you can see in the video, was that the security guard was always on defensive stance. He did give a few offensive strikes, but mostly to retaliate the key chain vendor’s advances. It was rumoured on Facebook that the security guard was sacked, however, Straits Times reported that he was sent for counselling. As a counsellor myself, I cannot imagine what will go on during counselling. Unless the plot isn’t as simple as what was reported, otherwise, I think the security guard was just defending himself from the attacker. Perhaps the security guard was harsh or rude to the vendor? I don’t know what exactly triggered the vendor to get violent. Perhaps sending the security guard for counselling is Cathay’s calculated move just in case the public reacts negatively to the video and becomes a PR nightmare for them.

From the comments and consensus from people, I think everyone agrees that the kungfu security guard is actually quite cool ;) To be honest, that should encourage more employers to hire martial arts trained security so we actually feel safe when any fights occur.

Here’s the video :P

It has been 2 months since I cut my hair and as you can see from the picture, my hair was getting unmanageable! It always does once it reaches shoulder length. Take a look at the amazing job Huifen did for my hair!!! As usual, quote “PRISS” to get 15% discount at Salon de Choix @ Somerset!

Huifen cut my hair to a short concave bob style that I love so much <3 Then she coloured my hair with a shade of dark ash blonde. The cut and colour took 2 hours in total :D There's this space helmet looking machine placed above my head which steams my hair gently during the colouring process.

She added this Moroccan Oil leave in treatment after my hair was blow dried. It smells really nice too :)

Super love my new hairstyle! After colouring and cutting my hair, I went to work and all my colleagues praised how awesome my hair looked hahaha… :) That’s what great haircuts do!

“Today is August 15, 2013. Today is my 60th birthday. Today is the last day of my life. Today, I committed suicide. Today, is the first day this site is active, but it will be here for years to come.”

I’ve not read the whole site yet, but it’s definitely going to be an interesting read. I’ve thought about my own death and I suspect I’m either gonna go by some freak accident or natural causes. I’m not sure which I prefer actually. But I don’t want to be living as an old person. No offence to old people. I can understand why Martin Manley did it, though I must say gunshot to the head sounds really messy.
