To those who think they're stupid.

Monday, November 7, 2016


I wonder how many people out there who tend to think they're too stupid to do so much for someone. I think it's pretty common to feel stupid / being used / taken for granted as people nowadays are becoming less appreciative and more calculative. Who to blame? The people around us? The society? The world? I wouldn't know.

I'm no saint but here's one thing that I know, NEVER FEEL SORRY FOR GIVING. 
Unless giving is your way of asking for something. No doubt we all have expectations towards people we care, and we'll get disappointed when things don't turn out the way you expected, but ask yourself, are you giving because you're asking for something? Or you're giving because you can?

When you are giving with your heart, because you can and you care, you are nothing less than greatness. Giving is an luxurious act and only the poor minded ones take it for granted. There's nothing stupid about giving, only stupid people who don't know how to appreciate. 

People make mistakes, getting used to kindness, taking things for granted, but it'll hit them when one day they realise they're missing out something. ( Coming from a person who been there done that. ) Maybe not right away, but it definitely will or even better, you might be the person who taught them to become a better person. Don't blame them for being selfish and unappreciative, because you do not need any negativity to bring you down. You need to learn how to outgrow them, and never turn yourself to be like them because they are stupid and you don't want to be stupid. Forgive them and move on.

Never ever blame yourself for doing good,
Never ever call yourself stupid for doing so.
Be proud of yourself for having a big heart to give and forgive.
Thank yourself.
Thank you for your existence, even if you think you're small and unimportant,
you're certainly important to the world, for spreading kindness from people like you. xx.


SUMMER IN PARIS WITH MY BFF.

Wednesday, November 2, 2016



Back in June, Daphne and I went for a really spontaneous trip to the UK to catch Coldplay and we thought that since we're in UK, why not make a short trip to somewhere near (europe) ? We were torn between Amsterdam and Paris. But we end up choosing Paris cuz seems like two girls to Amsterdam might go wrong... Well, I've been to Paris two years ago with my current lover *blush* but I guess it'll be a total different feeling to travel with your best friend. Daph hasn't been to Europe, so it's kinda my role to make sure she enjoyed Paris. 

It's my second time to Paris, this time, we took Rail Europe from London which cost us about 150 Euros per person. I remember the last time I took a flight, almost the same price but I personally think that taking train is more convenient. I basically did all the booking cuz Im the best friend ever lolll. 


Anway here's a few tips on travelling with your bestfriend! 

1. PICK THE NICEST AIRBNB STAY.

I've saved tons of nice Airbnb stays in Paris and I think it's a great idea to stay like a Parisian. First of all, it's cheaper compared to most hotels, even better, you can find really unique stays. Due to fashion week, most of the nice ones were taken and some of the prices went higher. I'm glad we found one perfect stay! It's exactly like the pictures shown on Airbnb listing. We didn't get to meet our host Stephanie but she is kind enough to offer us a bottle of red wine as a welcome gift ( yes we gracefully accepted her gift lolll. ) One downside about Parisian flats is they mostly don't have lifts, only stairs, and we are on level 3, I'm glad that we only have our handcarries for 2 nights.

2.  TOURIST GOT TO DO WHAT TOURIST GOT TO DO.
We made it to most landmarks, it was super hot in the afternoon and tbh, we can do more pictures if I wasn't having migraines due to the heat. Anyway, Tip is, take photos in every landmarks, don't be shy, you're in the other side of the world with your best friend, and you know that photograph is the only matter to keep your memories. Take selfies together, pictures of each other, and of course, do it in a fashionable way. 





( trust me I have like 300 pictures of me walking back and forth in front of Tour Eiffel  lololll. )

3.  VISIT HIPSTER CAFES! 
It's funny how we didn't have any french food during our trip except for some Pierre Hermé macarons but we certainly did go to some of the coolest cafes in Paris.

Nanashi 
Address: 57 Rue Charlot, 75003 Paris, France
- I guess it's one of the cool kids hang out place

Hollybelly 
Address: 19 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010 Paris, France
- Famous for their pancakes! Go in the morning cuz they only serve pancakes before 12pm, I had it two years ago, sadly this time Daph didn't get to taste them :/

Oggi
Address: 63 Rue Lepic, 75018 Paris, France
-  Italian, super big portion and it's good!







End up, Daphne wasn't a big fan of Paris cuz some of the Parisian we met were quite anal, but I guess we did had a great time. Met a nice woman who brought us to her fashion exhibition while taking UberPool, bump into our KL friends who are there for their fashion showcase, passed by Kanye's Pablo pop-up store and didn't buy shit cuz the line was massive and also made it to most of Paris' landmarks. 

I think it's really important to know who are you travelling with. It's great if you and your best friend have the same interest and both of you should be appreciative on the effort to travel together. Try to plan ahead on places to go, and make sure you both get to go places you both want to. Keep calm and have fun together!!

Gigi Hadid Inspired Makeup

Wednesday, October 12, 2016


Hihi, it's been a while since the last time I did a make up tutorial. This time is all about Gigi Hadid.




One thing I love about Gigi is her super healthy looking skin, I personally think that she doesn't put a lot of make up,  she always keep her make up really light that, and her skin always gives a very natural glow. Which explains why I've used Banila Co. Wedding Cream in this video. It has a very light shimmer, to enhance skin radiance. You can always substitute it with a highlighter powder/cream as long it's not too thick and heavy. We want to keep our skin looking natural, so no heavy contouring for this look, or over mattify look. Nars Velvet Matte tint "matte-ness" is just right, it'll give you a slight powdery effect after application, so we don't need to put on extra powder on top.

STUFF THAT I USED 
Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener in Light Medium Peach
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger
Banila Co. Wedding Cream
Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint in Alaska
Banila Co. Triple Wonder Auto Gel Liner in Dark Brown
Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette
Sephora Collection Bronzer
Nars Blusher in Final Cut
Nudestix Lip + Cheek Dual Pencil
Bausch + Lomb Lacelle Diamond in Aqua Glacier

Music: Jackson Breit - "679 & No Dignity"

hope you enjoy!!

Note to self : The only thing you'll be sorry in the future is to do things without a purpose. Be rich, not only on numbers but focus more on experiences. Be strong, to know that failures are the keys to success. Be kind, it's our responsibility to build a better world. Be thankful, and you'll find happiness in little things. Greater things are waiting ahead, all you need is to believe, look forward and stay positive.

My september was amazingggggg. As most of you know, it was my birthday month. Being a Virgo isn't easy, it's like one of the top most hated horoscopes cuz Virgos are sort of pain in the ass? I'm just glad my friends still love me, and tbh, I would love to be a virgo in my next life, on September 16th to be exact, cuz I think I'm one lucky b*tch.

This year, my nanny Natalie decided to plan my birthday dinner, crazy as it seems, I don't know what she can't pull off anymore. We celebrated my birthday at one of my favourite japanese place, Nobu, with amazing venue, beautiful view and great food. Accompanied by my favourite people, whose play huge part of my life, Nanny, Daphne, Ashley, Leng Leng, Nana, Isabelle, Brian, Valerie. ( I've forgiven those who couldn't make it lollllll. love you guys, don't worry you guys are important too - Vivi, Liza ). 

It's amazing how eventho some of us don't often meet each but everytime we meet, there's never ending conversations, about how we much we grew up and how we used to be. It's just great to have people like them who share the same values of life. No matter what it is, or how bad a situation can be, we are always backing each other up, constantly reminding each other what's important. I just hope that we can still be like this in the next ten years. * heart and finger crossed *

Big shout out to Nobu, Hennessy, IKKI, LooneyBloons, ByThianFlorist,Urban Decay, NARS, Kiehl's, Kensapothecary, Diptyque, Marvis, ShaunTeoCreations for making everything happen! Big hugs and thank you!
