Nuffnangx - Making our life easier

You must have heard of the NuffnangX app for your phone if you follow me on Twitter!

 If not, you must have been living in a cave ← potential line to be picked up by the NuffnangX special patent-pending technology thingy, i know, i am confusing myself too, but i'd explain haha.

You and i are all busy people. Yes, of course. Busy people are busy reading tweets, viewing and loving pictures on instagram, liking statuses on Facebook AND, reading blogs.

Like you are doing now. Thank you ^.^

But have you notice how hard it is to read blogs on our mobile phone!!! =(

I have a few problems.

One, for bloggers who use Blogger as their blogging platform, sometimes it's SOOOO hard to view their pictures and blogs on our mobile phones! Like if i wanna open the picture bigger/ smaller, it'd be swiped to the next post =___=" But if i don't, sometimes the picture is too small, or too big that it gets cut off =(( Why so tragic one, read one blogpost on phone must read until so pekchek =X

Two, IF you wanna switch to "web version" on the phone, you must scroll until tian ya hai jiao then you can find the "View web version" selection = /

Three, whenever i see updates of the blogger tweeting about new post, how do i know if it's worth a read =X Lolol. Give preview lah!!! We are very busy people remember?! Lolol.

And becox of all these problems, i hardly read blogs on my phone anymore.


Nuffnangx is going to change everything!!!!!

And we went to find out at the Nuffnangx launch!!!

Chop my passport

2012 is the year my passport got chopped the most number of times. And i am super thankful for it. Becox i get to see more of the world and becox traveling is always fun =D

It's September now and i am going to leave Singapore 3 more times (so far) this year. Flying off tomorrow to BKK and i'd be back on Sunday night. I should be VERY excited about BKK but i am only happy that i'd be going with nice people like Huiwen, Huiting (Huiwen's sister lol) and Becca (Huiwen's bff) defug Huiwen left out her parents only lolol.

And then i'd be flying off on Wednesday with Wendy, Cheesie and Audrey to Taipei and Tokyo and Taipei before we head back Singapore again =D It's gonna be such a girly overload trip i really don't know if my camera memory card can take it or not. And we'd be back on 11th.

And then i'd head up Tokyo again for Emoda touchMe fashion show SO EXCITED ^.^ Be up on the 25th and back on 28th October. I am going to this one with Josh =D I hope so much that we can go see new places this time round and hope i can visit Cleo Hair and Make at Omotesando !!! =D

It is quite amazing where blogging has taken me and where it'd keep bringing me, right =) There's a lot to be thankful for, a lot of people to thank, a lot more things to be done to make it even better.

And i am very happy. But sigh..

I am just going to miss Josh and family and home and doggies a lot when i am away without them.

But nevermind!!! I can go anywhere so long as i am not alone!!! =DDD At least got friends i guess!!! And so long as it's a nice clique i am sure it'd all be fun and exciting ^.^

Also leh, on the days i am back in Singapore i'd have to finish up work. Like a lot of work.

But nevermind!!! Work = Money =D

Very happy and very scared.

I mean there must be a reason why i cannot work out there. Lolol. Stress tolerance level super low. Last time when i work at GV for my attachment, i had nightmare about the popcorn machine going bonkers and keep popping popcorn and hurting people or like i gave people the wrong movie tickets but in the dream i choose to keep quiet about it and hope the couple never come and complain.

Right. Low tolerance for stress but i will survive =D In fact i will do SUPER WELL i think!!! Just keep going~!!! 为了大爱, 为了大爱!!!!!! ^.^

Oh, if Josh and i are going for our Honeymoon after the wedding, that would make me have 4 more trips on the list! =DDD

Alright, go ahead, chop my passport.


26 September 2012

Last minute, so?! ^.^

Sponsored post

I've been busy. With what? No idea. But trust me, i've been busy.

I mean if you think about it, eating, sleeping, watching a nice movie with Josh, meeting friends for quick lunch/ dinner and shopping, visiting my family and Baby Yurou are all very essential in my life becox.. No, not becox these are the only things i do lolol, becox..

This is call a balanced life. Balancing out the time i work late, balancing out the days i have events from morning to evening time and balancing out the time i spend in the beauty room just snapping pictures of myself and then spend hours photoshopping it haha. Yeah so there are days where i just have no time to sit down and have a nice chat with my loved ones.

True story, sometimes i am so packed, that i don't even have time to go buy myself outfits for events where there's a particular theme or dress code. Sometimes i have no time to go get presents for my loved ones.

Like my niece Naoki just had her birthday last week but i really really had no time to go get her something, AND pass to her. Now it's over = / i am a horrible aunt. But i'd make it up to her!!

If only i am reminded earlier that..
Jipaban does NEXT DAY delivery for just $4.90!
For just $4.90, you get to enjoy Jipaban's express delivery and receive your items the next working day! How awesome is that?!?! I should have thought of it and send my niece birthday gift on time first, then bring her out for dinner another day! Now a bit too late but better than never! Haha.

Oh and! For every $100 you spend, you get free next day delivery! OHSUM~~~!

And Jipaban ships worldwide so it no matter what country you're from, you can shop on Jipaban!!!

Had to head for dubbing for the movie the other day and it's at Mediacorp and since after the flea, i feel like i have EVEN lesser clothes to wear. Lolol. So the day before i selected some clothes from Jipaban and the next day before noon, i got it. NISE.

Knit cardigan and dress from maryjulian on Jipaban. I love love love the cardi SO MUCH!!! ^.^ It's my favourite cardi now. So easy to match with other stuff somemore.

Thanks to Michie for helping me snap pictures haha.

So leh! If you're like me, somehow, you always find yourself in a rush to do something, to get something, to buy something, and you always feel like at the last minute, you have nothing new to wear for an event happening tomorrow, you can always count on Jipaban.

With various labels that carry different styles, i am sure you can find something for yourself!

Refer to this blogpost i did for all the different brands on Jipaban and the DAILY updates of new items on Jipaban on these brands!!! Also, Friday is NEW SALES ITEMS update day lol. FYI.

Now whenever I am in a rush to get new clothes or gifts for friends, I go to Jipaban to select clothes or to their gift section to see if there's anything i can get for my friends.

Remember this whole outfit?! I selected them from Jipaban the night before the Nuffnangx event and receive them the very next day before noon. Thank you for being reliable, Jipaban!! Lol.

If not i will be in trouble.. Look at all the other bloggers dressing up to fit the theme BLUE.
And yes, i'd be sharing more about Nuffnangx soon!!! ^.^

If you don’t know what to buy for your friend or not sure what colour of what to choose, you can buy gift voucher from Jipaban for your friends so that they can choose what they like!!! Jipaban is like a megamall carrying anything from fashion, to books, to games, to household novelty items, to stationery and more more more!!! See for yourself on Jipaban ^.^

Alright some camho shots of myself in my favourite cardi for now ^.^

Boring or Boring

Thank you guys for coming down to the flea today! =) I hope most of you manage to grab something nice! And thanks for all the pictures!!! ^.^

I will keep on shopping haha. So see you next time when my room is exploding again ^.^

A little bit about wedding stuff! Haha. I am now planning my hen's night =DDD

I told gfs i want something that's along the line of massage, mani-pedi, food spread, board games/ card games, hotel stayover/ slumber night party, wake up to hotel breakfast, OMG, awesome.

But i am not so sure if hen's night are supposed to be like that. Or it's supposed to be filled with strip-dancing by some hot chunky men meat, alcoholic drinks, dare-games and first-time-last-time before marriage stuff.

You all think my idea of hen's night nice or not, say real one. I mean look at my list of the confirm invited girls, namely, all my bridesmaids.

Michelle - Boring. Loves to hunchback and everything also "anything lor" YAWNS.

Yuzhen - Safe. Will cry after some alcohol and then blame the salted egg for being salty O.o

Gem - Uncreative and gets red burning cheeks after just a bit of alcohol. Totally uncool. LOL.

Niao Niao - Hum Sup (means she very lecherous) scarly she koala-hug the male stripper o.O

Wendy - Pregnant, we need to think for baby!!! Loud, rowdy activities and alcohols are no good!

Sophie - Okay this one is the only young and happening one i am sorry Sophie you have to go havoc on another person's hen's night.

The numbers are clear, there's only one choice, we are doing boring.


Extra camho shots from the previous tutorial, with my hair tied up ^.^

Didn't realise i stuck the eyelash unevenly haha.

Spider eyes. Lol.

Mid-Autumn festival is here again!!! =DDD It should really be call Mooncake Festival cox that's the only thing that matters to me on Zhong Qiu Jie. Lol. Mooncakes. I LOVE MOONCAKES!!!

My two favourite places that sells the best snowskin mooncakes are Raffles hotel and Bakerzin. I only like liquer flavour ones ^.^

And then my favourite traditional mooncake leh.. Is anywhere that sells those with thick CHEWY baked skin. White lotus preferably but normal lotus is okay. And must have at least double yolks. Lolol. Very fussy.

This year i add one more brand to my favourite mooncake brand! =D Mooncakes from Chocoelf!

They are for one, SUGAR-FREE. So it's great for our parents!!! Of course only eaten in moderation, like anything else. And it's definitely healthier than the usual ones with high sugar content.

So i am happy when Alice from Chocoelf offer me two boxes lol. Actually, it's meant for my dad but nevermind i also get to try some lol.

Traditional X Modern simple black and red packaging =)

Their traditional baked skin with double yolks. My dad's favourite other than pure D24/ Mao Shan Wang durian filling snowskin mooncakes haha ^.^ Thank you, Alice!!!

Snowskin with a chocolate truffle yolk center. Sugar-free lotus paste is used and the flavours include: Vanilla truffle yolk, Berry truffle yolk, Green Tea truffle yolk and Durian truffle yolk. I don't have pictures of the actual product cox they run out of it!!! O.O Must be really yummy right.

But i am thinking their snowskin can't beat this!!! CHOCOLATE SKIN MOONCAKES!!! Comes in such pretty and cute designs too!!! The round Chocolate Skin Mooncakes consist of Dark Lotus, Vanilla Lotus and Cabernet Red Wine Lotus. Red wine one is my favourite =DDD Mini-chocolate mooncakes come in white lotus with macadamia, red lotus with walnut and French orange peel.

By the way, in case you are wondering and in case you are as swaku as my father, the printed designs can be eaten!!! It's actually rice paper lah ^.^

If you're thinking to get these as gifts for your clients or to buy them for your parents, you can visit their shop at TAKA basement (where all the food stores are) or purchase them online HERE!

You can also purchase chocolates from their online store =OO ENJOY!!! =DD

Today and Tomorrow

You know what does "today" means to me.

Today means from the moment i woke up, to the moment i sleep.

I don't care if it's past midnight or not.

Yeah i'm a badass like that. Haha.

And today would be a normal day if i didn't have a photshoot with Straits Times for an interview. And today would be a normal day if i didn't meet Mich and had lotsa laughter =DDD
And today would be a normal day if i didn't go to an event so nicely planned with the organiser so generous i walk out of the event with 5kg worth of products. Or more. More, i think. Much more.

Thank you Shiseido. I super welcome and look forward to the new ranges =D

Today would be a normal day if Wendy didn't (finally) announce her pregnancy!!! Everyone must be anticipating the next thing.. BOY OR GIRL. I say girl please. Like PLEASE!!! Haha ^.^

Today would be a normal day if Vivien didn't give birth to a healthy chubby baby girl =))

Today would be a normal day if i didn't wait pass 12 midnight to wish Josh Happy Birthday

So my conclusion is..

Today is a super extraordinary day and i am thankful for all the good things happening to me and the people around me so thank you, thank you and Thank You. I really am happy although more overwhelmed. I don't even know why. It's like i'm in this block of good state of mind for myself and i sometimes feel more excited and happy for the things happening to people i care for, than myself.

When something more than good happen to me, i zone out.

You know what i mean. Like i am happy by myself. Like just happy most of the time. So i don't really know how to tell myself to react. Like what? "Yo dude, now it's time to be EVEN MORE happy!"


Like the other day, i was quite happy about something, that i walk into a restaurant to eat alone.

I didn't know what i had to do to set it into my head that i am EXTRA happy.

After that then i manage to set it into me, that good things are STILL happening to me and around me and will keep happening.

Btw Mich, i will be really happy if you get Punggol BTO lolol. Please please please lah....!!! ZZ and i huan yin ni. Ni lai ba!!! Wo please ni!!!

And Happy Birthday, Darling *shy face* lolol.

Today and tomorrow, both also your birthday! Only becox i sleep so little. Haha.

Today and tomorrow, all also awesome lah~ ^.^

Every tomorrow also will be super awesome.

Just think about it.

Obasan to Tsubasa

Lol at the title i came up with. What the heck right?

So i said i would do a Dolly Wink tutorial but afterwards i realise it's maybe a.. 70% Dolly Wink / Candydoll tutorial cox i used other products like CANMAKE and Maybelline and cheapo china undereye lashes and also cheapo skintone double eyelid stickers. Haha. But they are good thou!

And end up i have maybe more than 50 people telling me i look like Tsubasa Masuwaka *shy*

Bluff one lah. I am not shy. Lolol. Cox i don't think i look like her after the makeup. I feel anyone will look like that (generic big puppy eyes) once they put on upper and lower lashes so no biggie.

Bear with me and keep reading (even thou it's a little long lol) and i hope you'd enjoy doing the same makeup on yourself as i did! The end result is VERY different from what i usually do lah =D

Obasan. Zero makeup, no edit. Only pulled colour as constant to the rest of the how-do guide.

And YES!!! I am a dark-hair human now!!! =OOO Haha. Haven't had dark hair for soooo long. Thanks to Cleo Hair and Make for doing this gradient hair tone for me!!! Most told me they love it but i'm still tryna get used to it ^.^ But okay lah, can get praises i super happy already lolol.

So let's get started with the Obasan to Tsubasa tutorial!!! =DDD

For those who are almost as clueless as me, this is Tsubasa Masuwaka. Producer of DollyWink and CandyDoll and they are especially famous for their falsies!

I also think i should have done this tutorial when i had light-coloured hair. Haha. But nevermind! Look what i found online!!! Tsubasa also got pictures in dark hair lah! Haha ^.^

 So these are her in dark hair, still DollyWinky lol. Okay so let's go!!!

First, we need to get the base right. I started using Candydoll products after Wendy introduced them to me! And have been loving it ever since. Although i still have like one whole set that i'm using now, i am not going to say no when the nice people from Shoponblog offered me! =D

Shoponblog sells all Japanese makeup and tools at a lower price than you can find over the shelf!

Check them out if you wanna get yourself some good quality Japanese makeup ^.^

And best part is, they are having a minimum of 18% Discount off Candydoll products!!!

I use the lighter tone of the CandyDoll concealer (No.1) for my undereye to cover dark eyerings and mainly to brighten up the whole undereye area.
Then concealer No.2 for the rest of my face that needs concealing. Mainly on blemishes only.

And then THIS is the love!!! Mich started using it recently and she super love it also!!! She say it's velvety and smooth and what i can say is.. This is the only loose powder i've tried that allows me to not have oily-looking face at the end of one whole day!!!


I am using this super thin cloth-paperish material double eyelid sticker in nude tone, from Ta Zhiang. I THINK it's $2.90 or $3.90 i can't remember. For 80 pairs (160 pcs). It's quite good leh i find.

This is how you should look. Parallel eyelid is crucial if you wanna achieve the Dollywink look!

Using eyeliner from CANMAKE =D I quite love this!!! Can get from Watsons i think.
Drew a slightly droopy one. Extend your eyeliner at least like 1cm from the outer ends of your eyes. As you can see here, my double eyelid line is wayyyy shorter than my eyeliner. We'd do something about it later in a bit!!! =DDD

Using eyeshadow palette from Maybelline. I never photoshop the eyelid tape. So you can see lah, the clothy-texture makes it takes on colour very easily i guess. So not bad lah! =D Anyway, just use any light colour all over the upper lid, and then, a brown on the outer and inner lid, and then, a shimmery/ lighter gold or light brown in the center of the lid. See markings i did in picture!

Now this one leh, quite important!!! Use a brown liner or a very pigmented brown eyeshadow, extend your double eyelid line until it reaches as far out as your eyeliner. Line the inner eyelid also if need!

This is how you'd look after extending your double eyelid with brown liner =D More obvious right?!

Now the highlight of the whole makeup, DollyWink fake lashes ^.^ Really really much different from the cheapo kind i use O.O Especially in pictures, they show out really well.
One side with, one side without.
Both sides with. Now that we are done with the upper part of our eyes..
Use a brown eyeshadown or anything brownish lol, line the outside of the under eyeline.
Then, stick under eyelash on. I am using the cheapo one and it was too long i had to trim it myself =( I think you all buy DollyWink or any other good Japanese brands better ba.
Oh oh, remember to fill in your brows or concealer it! If you're looking for good brow concealer, the one from Majorlica is good, heavy rotation also good!!! =D I have both! If you dark hair jiu just fill in your brows with brown pencil lor. If you light hair then conceal ba!


Now we need to add some toning and colour to the look!!! Left to Right - CandyDoll shading powder, CandyDoll highlight powder, and blusher in peach pink and candy pink!
Take the highlight powder, pinch your brush like this, and then highlight center of your nose bridge. If you will, also do highlight your undereye, and the ball of your chin right below the under lip.
Now shading. I shade my zygoma =( Never ever shade under cheeks cox it'd make you look older!!! Unless you are going for the sleek and toned look. So only zygoma and a small "V" under chin! ^.^
And then shade your nose!!! Can use the same powder also! Shade it like i've marked it in pink. The tip leh, you shade more round like i did ba. Lolol. Cox i think quite cute. If you shade it all the way sharp down might look a bit fierce. I don't know, like a rhino charging. Haha.
No photoshop on nose. I cover from the harsh ringlight you can see the shading better.
And now add colours to your cheeks!!! I apply it like two round balls on my cheeks!
Results. But we're not done yet!!! Still got lips to do!!!
Conceal lips. I am using heavy rotation lip concealer. Wendy gimmie one ^.^ And then gloss it with something sweet pink =D And......

WE ARE DONE!!!!!!!

Took this snap as first shot, turned out blur. So this is 100% unretouched!!! HOW YOU THINK?!?! TSU BU TSU BASA?!?!?!?! Hahaha!!! =DDD I think quite nice leh! And then later i photoshop green contacts, like how Tsubasa did in some of her pictures.

There, green eyes in the lower picture ^.^

My Finished Work
Obasan to Tsubasa

I never photoshop my eye-shape at all i swear. Quite proud of it!!! Cox it looks huge!!!

So this is the making of almost step by step!!! =D

To this finally!!! =DDD

Before and After ^.^ Not a very fair comparison cox i changed the colour here. But you get the idea.

Alright! Hope you like this tutorial and tweet me a picture if you ever try it ^.^

So.... I guess...

Obasan to Tsubasa, PASS?!?!?! =DDD Hahaha.

Thanks to Shoponblog again for the CandyDoll and DollyWink makeup!
