[ Meh. ]

Was used to leaving my MacBook Air alone.
But I'm back, maximising all my Apple products.
So nothing's been going on for awhile now like I've already expected it.
Just a really chilled out August with a few things here and there.

Have been contemplating on taking up dance classes, boxing lessons and whatnot.
But can't seem to be able to bring my lazy bones out of the house where I'm most comfortable in.
Thus, we're back to square one.

Nothing is happening.
When you're busy, all you want to do is to rest.
But when you're resting, you either just want to do something or rest some more.
And I'm having the time of being stuck in between the former and latter.

It takes time getting used to having a job with irregular timings.
Because most friends around me have the kind of nine to five jobs, it's almost hard to organise gatherings and meet ups with them even if I'm mad free now.
Could only do it after hours, which isn't exactly my thing (not exactly a fan of crowds).

Wanted to head overseas for a holiday but I'm scared for the life of me.
What's with all the bombing going on and all.
It pains me to watch the news nowadays.
I just wish the world can be a peaceful place for everyone to live in harmony.
Why is it so hard to achieve that?
Why must we make one's differences become the ''problems'' instead of solving them?

Another down side about having too much free time is, you tend to think a lot.
I'm not even kidding about the a lot part.
There has been so many things on my mind.
So much more that I'm having difficulty sleeping at nights/ mid-mornings sometimes.
I need a better body clock.

But good thing is, I'm back to reading again.
An app that I've been using on the phone is Scribd.
It's free for a month and then you start paying a subscription fee for it subsequently.
Am on my second month now and I'm still loving it.

Been so obsessed with John Locke's books that I've completely his 'Donovan Creed' series, 'Dani Ripper' series as well as 'Gideon Box' series.
I'm not usually into thrillers but hell, this guy got me hooked like crazy.
I like the fact that his books are all well-paced, yet you still get details out of it.
Especially love that he sometimes puts different point of views from different characters.
It's just like how E.L James came out with 'Grey' from the '50 Shades Of Grey'.

Did I also mention how the characters in all of his series are all related somehow or another?
I love love LOVE the links between them and it feels like I'm treasure hunting sometimes.
Gah, thank you John Locke for your awesomeness that got me back into reading.

Gotta find something else to do now.
Should be starting on ''Producers'' in abit.
And here comes the abrupt ending, lol.

[ Trip Down To Estetica. ]

I'm blogging via the Blogger app on my phone and I must say I'm pretty impressed with the functions, definitely made blogging a breeze now! :)

So like I mentioned on my Dayre (you can read it here), this is all about the details of the facial. 

Made my way down to Plaza Singapura that day and boy was I in dire need of self-pampering due to all the accumulated stress from filming in KL. What can I say? #欧阳萱萱 really is the hardest role for me to play to date. 

Really love the whole concept of the store front. Purple and white. Royally simple. :)

Began the consultation with Alice and I literally learnt so much more about my skin from that session, pretty amazed. ����

I'm serious when it comes to skincare. Also thankful my parents for gave me a really good start with their genes. However, I'm more towards the fairer side on the skin tone chart and I tend to want to keep it that way. Thus, am always applying brightening mask, lotions and whatnot. Only to find out that it's not exactly good for my skin because it's drying. 

Did a skin analysis test using the SkinTech Machine. The results of my skin's level of hydration, sebum, skin elasticity and pigmentation were then computed and converted into charts and shown on the screen. 


Alice told me that if my skin have got enough hydration going on, I wouldn't have to worry much about brightening because everything underneath will balance out. Which I thought, made a lot of sense. XD 

Finally after learning all about the condition, it's time for some treatment!

I got the names list for the products being used because I thought some of you might be interested in purchasing them (also because I'm one of them said interested buyers). XD 

 
Step one: Cleansing with Vitalift A+ Revive Cleansing milk & ActivCalm Calming lotion. 
My thoughts: I came without makeup but had some sunblock on. There was a slight difference in terms of my skin's level of moisture when Alice helped me cleansed my face versus my own cleansing routine which involves eye makeup remover and remover wipes. I guess the cleaning milk and calming lotion had something to do with it. 

Step two: Facial massage with ActivCalm Moisturizing Cream. 
My thoughts: I'm told that it boosts cellular metabolism and repair skin protective barrier. I don't know about that but I love love LOVE this part the best. Drifted off to dreamland the moment it started. My goodness, it was so awesomestically satisfying that my mood was lifted instantly. XD 

Step three: Firming eye treatment using SRS Lymphatic system by applying OptimaLift A+ Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream. 
My thoughts: It might not seems like it in photos but my eyebags and dark circles are actually quite bad from all the sleepless nights in KL. But I did notice how my eyes seemed less puffy after the entire facial ended. 

Step four: Moisturizing time with ActivCalm UltraCalm Serum. 
My thoughts: Love this product. Instant dewy-ness can be felt almost instantly. The suppleness is to die for!!

Step five: Masking with Derma Calm Mask. 
My thoughts: Gotta love masks. They are the ones locking in all the moisture. 

Tadahhhhhh~~~
Much confidence was felt after that one session, so much so I walked around PS barefaced. XD 

Gahhhhhh, I'm missing the facial as I'm typing this. Really wanna fit another appointment into my schedule soon! 

Estetica has 9 outlets located island wide and they are having a promotion for their customized facial now at $68 (U.P. $198). You can sign up here!

Do get yourself an appointment with them if you're interested with what I tried that day!
For more info, you can visit their website! :)

Follow them for more updates if you like! :)
Last but not least, thank you so much for reading.


Till the next time, take care and see ya around.

[ As Dead As It Can Be. ]

Woah, my last post was like in September last year.
Crazy how I've managed to neglect this space for so long.
And I do feel really sorry for coming back to it whenever I need a space to vent.
This blog has never failed me but I have failed it in so many levels.

Well, it's 6.27am right now.
Haven't slept a wink and am not planning to until the night comes.
A lot has been on my mind.
Hmm, first a little update of my current happenings.

Just wrapped up my 12th Chinese drama but this was shot entirely in KL.
And I felt something in me changed.
Or at least how I view acting as and how my perspective in life changed.
I don't know how to explain it but I guess when it happens, you'll understand.

All I'm trying to say is, I guess I'm at another phase of my life where I feel I need more time with my family and friends, instead of just work.
Because they are the ones who will always be there for me irregardless.
But they won't always be there because people grow old and you know, die..
So I'm cherishing them more than ever.
And I'm ashamed to say that the amount of quality I have with them on the very day that I'm back, is more than weeks altogether before going to KL.

Same cherishment goes out to my @Jayleybeans as well. <3 br=""> And did I mention how I'm addicted to e-books and am considering getting myself a kindle.
Though I've no idea how different each of them are.

Ugh, I sense a headache coming.
That's my cue now.

[ OH. MY. GOD. ]

It's currently 12.40am.
I'm trying to settle the problem between my iPhones.
It's driving me crazy.
It's my first time porting from a telco to another.

So I got a text from Singtel saying I will be able to start using my line with them from 26/12/14.
And little did I know, 15 minutes before 12am strike, ''no service'' surfaced on my 4S.
Turned on my 6 and it has the exact same sign.

I'm panicking right now.
I have not sync anything to anything.
Trying to sync the 4S to my MacBook Air.
Tried to on my windows.
My gosh, never thought I'll say this because I was kinda good at these tech stuffs...

AHHHHHHHHHH...
HELP.

It's 1.43am now...
(T_T)

2.41am...
The iPhone 6 is updating my iCloud settings now...
My eyes... (O_O)zZZ

3.02am.
So it turns out,  the phone still needs to copy some applications over...
And here I am feeling like a zombie, waiting for time to pass...

8.40am.
Just woke up and my phone still wasn't backed up.
Wtf...

[ Urgh. ]

Ever wondered, why are there such people in the world who only thinks about themselves?
I can't seem to be able to fathom.

And I'm not talking about the rich-who-has-an-abundance-of-wealth-to-flaunt-but-yet-refuse-to-donate-to-the-society-kind-of-selfish, because to a certain extent, what they wanna do with that sum of money is their problem IF they earned it the hard way themselves.

I'm talking about regular folks who know that they can't afford what they want and yet has the cheek to impose themselves on others just to get what they want.

I grew up in a family where I'm taught to be honourable in whatever I do.
To not put myself in the way of others and to be considerate and needless to say, punctuality is a big key factor too.
Because it IS a waste of time AND money to let other people wait for you whether you don't mean to be late or not.

So my parents just came back and my mom was sharing a piece of information about this couple whom they went a trip on with.
She was only half way through her story and I was already mad irritated, bothered and slightly disgusted by what they did during the trip.

I mean, it's one thing to wanna enjoy what the others are enjoying, but it is entirely another to take advantage of others AND also enjoy what they are enjoying. 
Like wtf?
Don't wanna go too much into details because it'll just make my blood boil again and I also don't wanna take it out by typing so hard and fast on my MacBook Air, which I bought with my own hard earned money after months of considering (pfft).

On a random and much happier note, my iPhone 6 has finally arrived!! XD
It's in a glorious shade of rose gold and I'll have 128GB of space, just what I need after using my 32GB iPhone 4S for more than 2 years.
Unfortunately, I can only officially use it when October comes, because it is only then will my line with M1 terminate.
So Singtel it is.

With that being said, I did kinda wish that the 6 can last me for more than 2 years.
I mean, with all the amount of money I will be paying every month for just 6GB of internet.
Like when I was using my iPhone 4S's 3G, it's 12GB of internet for a mere $30 per month?
Who knows how much money will they jack up till when the next generation of phones come out...

Fingers crossed.
Shall make it a point to only change, probably until iPhone 7 minus or iPhone 8 divide comes out?
We'll see.

Phew.
Feels so much better after letting some steam out.
Gotta love this space. <3 nbsp="" p="">

Till next time. :)
