Long over due birthday post

Yuppers I know that my birthday was last month but darn was I swamped with exams, work and running my blogshop.

It has been a year since I started blogging and I am thankful that I can share my thoughts, happiness and sadness here. It has been a rough year a lot bumps and knocks along the way, got out of a relationship and now trying my best to fix a broken heart and avoid depression...

On a happier note this year for my birthday my elder sister treated the family to dinner at The Little Fish Shop at NEX. The  atmosphere was great, place was nicely decorated with a sea side theme.


My Birthday, 26

Been a year since I have started my blog.
2013, an interesting year, I went to Taiwan, Broke up with my long time boyfriend of 4 years, went to school and now facing my exams ....


 A little too much drama for my liking at 25 ... I just hope 26 would be  filled with much less heartache and disappointment.





Thor: The Dark World

If you are a Marvel comic fanatic like I am you would have caught the movie, Thor and The Avengers. Well the Thor saga continues ...


In this movie, when the world is in peril Thor has no choice but to ask his adoptive brother for help. In the last movie The Avengers, things were not left on a pleasant  note, resulting in Loki being imprison for the crimes he have committed . Will Loki help Thor in his quest to save the world from Malekith and his army of dark elves?


On the bright side he gets to meet Jane foster but will it be for the last time ?



Check out the trailer:



Forget Miley Cyrus, Thor is totally hotter with his magical hammer ...

I love Braids

Since my school going days I had always wanted to learn how to braid my hair. I didn't get the chance to learn till this year when I could no longer bear the longing to braid my hair.

Little sis birthday surprise

This year my eldest sister decided to throw my younger sis a surprise 21 birthday party. My little sis was feeling very blue because most of her friends were overseas and so she decided not to celebrate her birthday.

To cheer her up my elder sis hatched the master plan to give her the biggest surprise ever...

 While my elder sis went to scout for the venue.
My youngest sis made an awesome scrapbook/guest book for  friends and our family to sign in and I was in charge of the decorations and designing the invite.

My love hate relationship with Dyslexia



Yes, I am dyslexic, I couldn't read nor write properly till I was in Primary 4.
9 was the age when I was tested at school for dyslexia.

Mooncakes 2013

I am blessed to be able to taste mooncakes from a couple of hotels and restaurant this year. Thought I'll just review them and share my thoughts with you.


Needless to say that the Raffles Hotel Snow Skin Mooncakes are known to be the best. Newer flavors available this year are the  Snow-Skin Kaffir Lime Mooncake and the  Snow-skin Rum and golden rasin moon cake. No doubt that my favourite is still the Snow-skin Mooncake with champagne truffles & ganache.

An update on School

It was lesson number 6 of business practice today, the last few weeks when by really fast. I am starting to catch up with what the lecturer is saying, no staring blankly at him anymore lol.

Again it is the greatest relieve to have Si jie around with me, she is a lovely dose of sunshine, haha always making me laugh  :)

Time oh time, I just wished I had more time and energy for studying. After completing  the letter writing and list making for business English class. I am exhausted, working in the day and taking night classes is exhausting.

Well I guess I just have to suck it in, face my fears of failing my exams and work hard to achieve what I so desire...

Wish me luck all !

Wolverine - Cathay Platinum Movie Suites

A dear friend of mine aka self proclaimed younger brother, Adrian invited me to catch Wolverine with him.
The sweet dude treated me to catch the movie in the Cathay Platinum Movie Suites, totally cool right :)




Compared to Golden Villiage I must say Cathay has won hands down. From the deco to the service. Cathay was better, the sleek and clever design of the place, offering not only comfort but privacy as well. 


  
Adrian and I on the ultra comfy seats, We were given blankets.
You can even request for pillows lol.

The have awesome range of food in the menu from fine wine to set meals.
If you are a movie junkie like me popcorn is a must. Other then the usual you could be from the food counters they offered a range of interesting mixes of popcorn. We chose the caramel almond mixed.  Adrian was feeling hungry so he ordered the set meal.


The set meal was served in a very cleverly packed plate. For ease of consumption during any movie. Tasted great too. According to Adrian.

                                                    Ghostly looking me :P 

Okay enough about the cinema, Now more about the movie... As a all time big fan of the X -men. I can say that the movie didn't let me down.



Staring none other then Hugh Jackman, I must say Jackmen has always portrayed  Woverine very well. The antsy barbaric and vulnerable side of Wolverine. 

The movie seems to be a continuation of the previous X-men movie  - The last stand, from Wolverine's perspective of things. Having to kill the women he loved, Jean Grey has obviously taken it's toll on him. The guilt of killing her haunts him frequently in his dream.

Based mostly in Japan be prepared to catch street fights with Yakuzas and hard core battles with the forces of evil. 




I wonder if Wolverine  regrets saving Yashida all those years ago during world war 2 would hae saved him a whole lot of trouble decades later  .... and then, again if he didn't he would have never met his Granddaughter Mariko  .  


I totally love Yukio's character, not only is she an expert with the sword and combat, she has her own cool style in dressing. 



The movie was alright but not really one that I would like to watch over and over again. Can't wait for the next X-men movie though. 

I give this movie 4 clouds.

Thanks again Adrian for the treat your indeed an awesome younger brother :) 


















Ikea shopping haul with little sis

Went out today with my sis to Ikea to get some stuff to beautify our home.



First stop lunch and boy we had a feast ! Just look at the bountiful spread .








Meatball were a bit of a let down wasn't as flavorful as I remember them to be but the almond cake more then made up for the disappointment only at $3.80 with a free cup of latte. Savoring each bite as I ate the cake indeed the taste was heavenly. 



We got a whole bunch of lovely items during our spree.




Got a set of bed sheets for myself totally love the rose print on it cost about $30 a little ex but am totally in love with it . I believe my lucky panda and melody agrees with me haha they look very pleased with the new sheets.



I know this is nothing new but you gotta agree that wall sticker really, liven up those boring walls . Sis and I got a bunch for our living room and her bed room.



Love the door curtain that we got as well haha , my sis cleverly use those as dividers to separate her study area from her entertainment and rest areas of her room. Perfect for cam whoring as well lol.


Sorry bad lighting and hate my teeth , totally gotta get them fixed.

Sis got this as well to hang in her room. 3  gorgeous paintings for a very affordable price of $29.90 totally worth it :)  

I also got some magazine stands for my notes and school stuff , looks really sleek . Not bad for $7.90 huh ?

Well if your tight in budget but really want to living up the place you can always count on IKEA !!!
I will definitely stop by again in search of awesome stuff.














Back to school - day 1

I'm all set to going back to school , bought a bunch of essentials such as a pencil box , note books ect ...

Totally love my new forever friend's pencil box. Affordable and pretty, just the way I like it.


My dearest friend Si Jie gave me a whole bunch of stationery, she used to work for a supplier years ago and the clever gal stocked up on stationery buying them for her company at cost price. Thanks to her I'm all ready to go.


The first lesson was quiet a mouthful to swallow it has been 10 years since I stepped in to a classroom and I do find it difficult to catch up. Am really very thank for for Si Jie being my course mate , always telling me to relax, chill. Thank god for girl pals! Isn't she just the sweetest.

Well I am not going to admit to defeat  so easily, I am going to work my ass off and prove to those who look down on me.

Wish me luck dear online friends ! I know I'm going to need it .



Haha I have a life long wish to visit Japan, Perhaps I will one day . Till then I can only use my imagination and photoshop hahaha....

The dress I'm wearing is from My little Bow . http://mylittlebow.com/
Do check them out !

despicable me 2

I was a huge fan of Despicable me but part two sadly feel a bit flat for me.



Yes it was really sweet that Gru our dear villain turn good guy stepped up to the role of being a great father to  Agnes, Edith and Margo.Throwing princess birthday parties and keeping potential boyfriend/heart breakers away.




The introduction of new characters didn't flow well , it was like they were just jammed packed in to the movie for the sake of being there.

Lucy was sweet but from the start there was no connections and signs of Gru even being attracted to her when everyone else was and he suddenly just falls for her ? I don't buy that haha.

El Macho just appeared here and there and for the final battle his character I felt was pretty 2 dimensional, doesn't give you the vibe of a true villain and what is with the chicken totally lame.


 The charm of despicable me was the relationship between Gru and the girls, there was too much focus on Lucy and the minions. The girls were like placed in the back seat , a side story . A few lines here and there and very short clip about the girls I hardly even saw Edith.

Dr. Nefario's brief departure from Gru's  team was alright because he wanted miss the old days but coming back because no one messes with his family ? Why did he help El macho with kidnapping and transforming the minions in the first place if 'family' mattered so much to him ?


   The minions were up to standard with their madcap humor and entices, I guess they were the factor that saved the movie from being a b rate movie. Love their renditions of boy band songs .


Just my Point of view of the movie seriously needs a better storyline.
 
I give this movie  2 clouds
