New blogshop on the block! My Cat’s Whiskers!

My Cat’s Whiskers is a very special blogshop as they donate 5% of their sales proceeds to Cat Welfare Society and the funding of cat food for their own feeding spree. Do support and help to give the strays a better life. It’s a business for a good cause!

My Cat’s Whiskers sent me one of the tops in their second collection and I wore it to the last PC Show and subsequently to meet my friends for dinner and coffee after that. I received lots of compliments for the top!

Photobucket
Blue Whale in Ceil
My favourite blue colour with white polka dots. Those who know me would know how many blue and white items I own. Hahaha…
I paired it with my white denim shorts, booties and lacy vintage socks to get the Vivi-inspired look!
You can also wear it with a belt for more waist definition and to sport a different look!

Photobucket
Jon Jon love my top too! He told me it’s very simple yet pretty. (^^)

A few other apparels that I like from My Cat’s Whiskers!

Photobucket
Sokoke is Saffron Yellow
So sunshiny!

Photobucket
I got a thing for polka dots! Schoolgirl look!

Photobucket
Oh yes! My Cat’s Whiskers sells accessories too. I love this from the second collection. Something to keep time and accessorize my plain top.

Photobucket
Went for coffee with the girls and Sherry love my top!

Photobucket
Shishi and Minmin!

Bangkok Trip June 2012 – Day 2

Continuing from yesterday’s post and here’s Day 2! Day 2 was by far the most tiring day!

Photobucket
Walked to Indra Square that’s just beside Baiyoke Sky Hotel for breakfast! @ Black Canyon Coffee. Black Canyon Coffee in everywhere in BKK.

Photobucket
Ordered Club Sandwich..

Photobucket
While Jon Jon took some pasta

Photobucket
Jon Jon wanna tailor some shirts and I took him to the tailor that my buddy Jez always goes to!
Its right at the entrance of Baiyoke Sky Hotel.

Photobucket
Took a train to Chatuchak Weekend Market. So so hot!

Photobucket
The heat is so unbearable!

Photobucket
After an hour or two of walking… Jon Jon bought some yummy ice as we rest

Photobucket
Taking the BTS back to hotel. He’s standing…

Photobucket
And I’m sitting! Thanks Jon Jon!

Photobucket
OOTD!
Top from blogshop that’s no longer in operation (and yes I’m wearing shorts underneath don’t worry…)
Navy coloured flats from Charles and Keith

Photobucket
Pushed up my bangs the minute I reached the hotel room. It was freaking hot.

Photobucket
And discovered a big pimple…. -_-”’

Photobucket
So so exhausted that we didn’t want to head out for dinner. We ordered room service. Shiok, relaxing and good!

Photobucket
Both of us had cravings for steak and we ordered the same thing.

We ended the day resting and going for a massage….

Photobucket
Sawadeekap!!

Bought Mcdonalds for supper and errr… I still think that the cheeseburger taste a little weird let!!!


Bangkok Trip June 2012 – Day 1

We headed to Bangkok for a mega shopping and eating trip earlier this month!

First… The hotel room. Quite a number of my friends have been texting me asking me about the hotel after I posted it on Facebook!

I stayed in Baiyoke Sky Hotel and its my second stay there. Its very accessible and convenient, very cosy and comfy too! Let me show you the spacious hotel room…

Photobucket
The door is on the left. The toilet is so huge that I can do a dance inside.

Photobucket
I’m standing at the door taking this photo. Walkway into the hotel room. Wardrobe is on the right.

Photobucket
The 2 huge wardrobes

Photobucket
The little entrance on the right is the walkway where the wardrobes are. Walk in and there’s the living area.

Photobucket
And to the left of the living area is the dining area. Very spacious isn’t it?

Photobucket
I stood at the living area to take this photo. And that’s the entrance to the bedroom!

Photobucket
Sleeping area on the right side.

Photobucket
Vanity area on the left! and there’s the full-length glass windows!

When I entered the room, I thought I booked an apartment to stay and not a room. Awesome!!!

DAY 1

Photobucket
Was really hungry after checking in and headed to the cafe to eat. Here’s my Pha Thai noodles. Very yummy!

Photobucket
Heading out after lunch. Very tired. I always feel very tired after a flight no matter how many hours it is.

We decided to go deasy on Day 1 and walked over to Platinum Mall for shopping. So tired that we stopped after combing 2 levels! That’s a lot of shops to cover isn’t it? We walked every single aisle! Hahaha..

Photobucket
Therefore, we had to grab some rest and coffee time at Black Canyon Coffee at Level 1 of Platinum Mall

Photobucket
Crossing the bridge heading back to hotel to dump all that we bought before heading out for dinner. I stole Jon Jon’s jacket to wear because I was feeling cold. Feeling cold in Bangkok in June. (I shall tell you all the story of how I always cause gloomy weather next time. Hahaha…)

Photobucket
Took a Tuk Tuk to Yao Warat (Chinatown) for seafood. A must go if you visit Bangkok.

A must go restaurant in Yao Warat:
T & K Seafood
49-51 Soi Phadung Dao
Chinatown
Bangkok, Thailand
02-2234519

d1ebb0ed
Freshly grilled prawns

67b854c8
Crabs in boiled fresh milk.
Decided to order this since its different from the way crabs are cooked in Singapore. Amazingly delicious!

Photobucket
Egg Fried Rice. A very simple dish but its not easy to have it really yummy. Best I’ve ate so far. We actually went back to T & K Seafood on our last night just to eat this friend rice again.

Photobucket
Must have some bird nest when you are in Bangkok’s Chinatown isn’t it? We decided to have it in a Chinese medical hall instead of the restaurants.

Photobucket
Very nice…What they call 血燕。You can add your own honey but I didn’t. Already very sweet for me.

Photobucket
And here’s Jon Jon enjoying his bird nest set.
1000 Baht for 2 sets of bird nest.

Shall post my Day 2 tomorrow! :)


Mary Kay Botanical Effects Skincare… Let Your Skin Smile…

I’ve heard about Mary Kay’s skincare and makeup before prior to this event but I didn’t know a lot about it. I was glad to be able to know more about this brand of products at the event.

Photobucket
For dry skin

Photobucket
I did a survey to find out my own skin type with the help of the beauty consultants at the event. I had dry skin and hence Mary Kay has kindly sponsored the Dry Skin formula of Botanical Effects Skincare for me to use! Thanks!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

And here comes my favourite palette….

Photobucket
What is this?

Photobucket
Mary Kay Compact

Photobucket
And this is what it looks like when you open it up! There’s nothing inside, but the casing is magnetic. Which means you can choose you favourite shades and customize your compact palette to bring it out!

Photobucket
For example, I chose this shade of eye shadow. (It’s magnetic!)

Photobucket
And I fit them inside the casing. They won’t fall off because of the magnet. Choose your favourite shades and customize your compact. There’s no need to bring unnecessary colours out anymore! I love this!

What Are You Willing To Do For $9.90? Flashgigs!

ADVERTORIAL

Just a couple of months ago, I wanted to do very simple editing to a video clip I recorded but I didn’t know how to do it. I was hoping that someone could do it for me or guide me through it at least. I don’t even mind paying a small sum of money for someone to solve some technical glitch (real simple editing here. I know the professional video editing jobs are really tough and takes a lot of time and money!).

Photobucket

My Dearest Kele Baby

I woke up close to 12pm today and saw that Kele was having a diarrhea. I was worried sick. I cleaned up his whole area for him and cleaned up my whole room because I was worried that he might have an infection or something. But thank God he seemed better already. He drank all the water I gave him in his little saucer (I hear the water rumbling sound in his stomach though… Hope he’s ok..) He peed normally and I’m still monitoring his poo poo. Hopefully it will be normal and he will recover soon. If he’s still having watery stools, I’m going to bring him to the vet already.

Photobucket
And so being the worried mum I cancelled photoshoot for blogshop, and dinner with my JC mates today. Thanks for being understanding all the sweeties! Sorry to inconvenience you all but I need to monitor my little baby. And here I am sitting in front of my laptop with a sick and whiny Kele sitting and leaning on my leg and typing this post.

Anyway I took photos of Kele when I reached home after meeting friends a few days ago. He was so funny and excited when I reached home!

Photobucket
Let’s put our heads together for a photo!! Hahaha…

Photobucket
One more!

Photobucket
Two more!
Btw… I removed my braces last Friday! Will do up a detail braces post to answers the many questions that came in my form spring and email.

Photobucket
I love my little baby.

New Hair Colour!

I haven’t got time to go and colour my hair although I needed a touch up for the longest time! I never liked black hair so I couldn’t wait to go and do my hair! Opted for a lighter shade of brown this time round.

Photobucket
The stylist examining my hair after instructions from Alex!
According to Alex, he had to work his brain cells a bit to do colour for my hair because:
1) The bottom part of my hair is bleached and I wanted to keep that part a lighter shade from the brown I wanted.
2) I had previously DIY colored my hair at home and the new colour won’t come out easier on the DIY hair dye part.
3) The black hair regrowth which Alex addressed it as my virgin hair

Therefore, he had to add something to “re-do” my DIY colour part. I can’t remember what the process was called! Hahaha… goldfish memory me. Before adding the colour dye to my hair, yet avoiding the bleached parts first, then adding on dye on the bleached parts and hair roots and the black regrowth only at the very end so that my colour will be even. Very chim. I also don’t understand. But hell yeah, he’s good! And thanks to Kenneth and Marcus, and the other lady stylist who helped apply the colour and washed my hair! :)

Took a couple of hours to get the colour done! Worth the wait! I wanted a lighter shade of brown yet I don’t want to do any bleaching since my hair is super duper dry. Lucky Jon Jon was with me and he got a new hairstyle too!

Photobucket
Marcus washing Jon Jon hair for him. Dunno why the few of them can be so happy by washing hair. The salon was filled with jokes and laughter!

Photobucket
Jon Jon’s new hairstyle!

And my new hair colour and new hair cut by Alex?

Photobucket
Ta-da!!!
Alex and me! I love the colour! And the nice fringe he cut for me!

Photobucket
Photobucket
Took this photo under natural sunlight to show the different colours at the lower section of my hair.

Love it!

PS: Im back from Bangkok today! I’ll update with the very happy Bangkok shopping trip with my new apparels ASAP! :)
