End of ugly-ness!

If you're not on my FB page, you will be shocked by what I wanna blog now, again. 

I REMOVED MY BRACES!

Woohoo!!

Really buay tahan how ugly I look and how uncomfy it is. I pleaded with the ortho to let me switch to Invisalign instead, which means I've to top up another $2K+. (Invisalign costs $7K + GST!) 

I'm not rich, but I don't wish to be emo for the next one year or so. Happiness is more important than money. Anyway, I've already setted aside $4K+ for braces so I put that $4K+ as the deposit and the balance I'm paying by instalment.

I'm so glad I did so!! Becos it was a total torture for the past one week! 

The ortho buay tahan me, I think. I keep bargaining with him. Haha! He didn't charge me for the braces at all. So nice of him!!! 


In just one week, my teeth move so much, that my top is quite straight now, amazing!!!

Happy girl is me!!! Heehee 

I'll treat it as a birthday present for myself. BIG 3, need to reward myself with something BIG!! =D

Sinking into depression soon...


Into my 5th day of braces and I can honestly tell you, I HATE IT SO SO SO MUCH. In fact, during the 1st night, I already have the urge to go and remove it the next day. Cos, 

1) IT'S SO FUGLY!!! (And I'm sibei low morale! Don't dare to go out! Hurhur)
2) IT'S FUCKING UNCOMFORTABLE! (Like a piece of thing disturbing you!)
3) I CAN'T EAT! 

Walao eh. It's so torturing man. But I keep telling myself to 忍 cos of the $4.2K. TMD! 

The only "bright" side is that, I lost 2kgs in 3 days. I jog till I die also cannot even lose 1kg lor. So people, if you wanna lose weight, GO PUT BRACES. (Depends on individual though!) I'm prepared to lose like 5kgs throughout this process, wahahhahahahahaha!!! 

I brought forward my next appointment to this coming Thursday liao. Apple taught me to go every week to speed up the process. I INTENDED TO DO THAT! I hope to remove it in less than a year. I will pray and pray everyday. 

You know, simply everyday, I'll receive msgs from friends, nagging at me, say I eat too full, too much money don't know where to spend, my teeth very nice liao, why itchy backside go put braces, blah blah blah. And they said I'm ugly now. 

I'm very sad! The more they say, the more regret I feel, becos I somehow agreed too. And I'm quite worried I'll turn out uglier than my past after removing the braces. If this goes on, I think I'll sink into depression soon... Sigh!!!

Hello, braces!

Earlier today, I shocked everyone with my posts on IG/FB page, lolol. Becos, I never really mention about this to anyone before...

I went to put braces, HAHAHAH!


LOLOL!!!

Well, I meant to go for (first) consultation only lor. But I'm worried I'll procrastinate again, so I asked if I can do immediately, he said can, so I do lor.

Anyway, as I've said before, I'm in charge of my own life, wanna do, just do it, don't have to ask or inform anyone. (ZY still don't know yet, lol!) I'm paying it myself what, so I only need to answer to myself.

But now, I'm feeling a little regret liao. Cos I spent $4.2K++ to make myself uglier for a year or two. My friend can tell me it's cute. Cute ki lan lah! LOL

Actually, my main concern is my bottom jaw, there's one crooked. I LOVE MY TOP JAW LEH. But for my case, I've to do both, cos my top and bottom teeth are too close to each other. I need to expand abit of my top jaw so there's space for the metal piece on my bottom teeth. Aiya, complicated!

Anyway, I don't have to extract any tooth. I asked the ortho to extract for me, he refused, lol. And I can only put the bottom one when my top jaw expanded.




Last few shots before doing.

 


And right after putting the braces, my friends insisted me to take a selfie. So, I took one whole lot but can't even find a nice one to send them. Sigh, cannot take proper selfie now. HOW??? =(

[6th] The Checkers

Sponsored

Time flies... It's been 6 months with Pink Nail Studio, and I'm still lovin' them very much. And hey, those who went there after reading my blog, thank you very much for trusting me! =)

I went there yesterday to get my 1 month+ (but still looking good) gelish removed and new design applied. I think if not for my chipped toe nail (cos I went to peel due to painful ingrown), I'll just leave it until it's damaged. LOL

Esther is the one thinking and deciding the colors and designs for me everytime (unless I requested). I really hate to think lah, so I leave it to her to do whatever she wants. And it always turn out so nice and lasting!!!


Side track : My Twin Star bracelet 几 cute hor?!



O'rite, her designs might be simple but I like it simple leh. 简单就是美!!! Also, her gelish are all good brands, very very lasting! Those who did your nails there before, don't you agree with me? =D


And today, I brought my mum to fix her poor nails... (Cos I wanna pass Esther something and I asked if she wanna comes along. And she finally decided to fix her nails.)


You see lah, her nails, so scary hor, and it has been lidat since few months ago. I always ask her to go with me to fix it but she's always busy busy busy. But actually, she's scare of pain lah. However, it's literally pain-less when they did it for her just now. Thumbs up!

èPure Membranous Jelly Masque

Been a long time since I last did a mask review. Okay, I'm lazy, nothing to justify. Haha! But I do (still) intro good stuffs on my IG/FB page lor, follow me there bah!


And here's one I intro-ed during Jan/Feb, I can't remember. It's so good, I just ordered my 2nd pack, and I thought, why don't I just do a review about it?


Disclaimer : This is not an ad, nor sponsored review. I bought and try and think is really good so I wanna intro to you all. I love sharing good stuffs with people.


This mask is not like those sheet kind, a little troublesome but the result is FANTASTIC!!! I swear by it, and I'm very sure you guys will love it, just after one try, becos you can see & feel instant improvement on your skin. 

Direction of use :-

1) Wash your face. (I usually exfoliate my face as well.) 

2) Apply some toner and serum. 

3) Use scrapper to evenly mask the whole face with thickness of 0.3-0.5cm. Apply more onto tip of nose, T-zone and pigment areas. (It's quite hard to spread evenly though.) 

After 30-40 mins... 

4) Scrap off mask gently with a downward motion. (Prepare a piece of tissue for lesser mess!)

5) Rinse off thoroughly and pat dry. 

P/S : Here's the best part, you can see your face become fairer and feel that it becomes much smoother too! 

6) Apply toner and complete skincare regime.  


Close up!

No filter, no edit, pardon the bad lighting. My nose is abit red becos I went to squeeze it in the noon, hahaha! And hor, my PJ was so fugly, I went to change another one, and combed my hair too! I think I deserved some credits? LOL


Then, Meimei came and photobombed me! Lol! This pic is edited though! To make up for my laziness for the past few months, I skipped (forgot) dinner just to do this review ok!

Black Box ~ April 2014

Sponsored Review

I'M BACK!!!


Sorry for the delay, Black Box April 2014 review coming up soon...
 
I supposed those who have balloted successfully for the April 2014 edition have already received your Black Box, right? And to those who still have no idea what's Black Box about...

Watch this video!

Here are 3 random picks from Black Box April 2014 edition...


ADORE Sanitary Pads
 
This has gotta be my most favorite sanitary pads. Best sanitary pads ever. 

Himalaya Lip Balm

I've plenty of lip balms, this is however, not the best in my collection, it doesn't show result instantly. But probably becos it's made of 100% herbal ingredients, slowly but surely, remember? :)
 
Darlie All Shiny White (Charcoal Clean)

Tried and tested and oh my, I LOVE THIS TOOTHPASTE MAN! Very refreshing!!! I'm a sucker for toothbrush and toothpaste actually. I like to buy those whitening toothpastes and pretty toothbrushes.

O'rite, so what's your favorite item in Black Box April 2014? Care to share? =D

Spruce @ Bukit Timah, Old Fire Station

Impromptuly jio-ed J for lunch at 12pm. Prepared and picked her around 1:45pm. I brought her to this place...


No idea why this place came to my mind, and I thought "ok go", I've never been there before though. Even if J can't make it, I'll still bring the kids there alone. That's how independent I am. Want to go, just go, I don't need to rely on anyone, including ZY. Mentally, physically & financially independent. 



2pm fix - lychee martini.


Kids meal at $12 each, comes with a drink. The spaghetti is tasteless.


The red velvet cupcake ($4) is not bad, but the nutella ($4) cupcake is very bitter. I don't really like chocolate, especially those dark chocolate. When I saw the nutella cupcake, my 1st reaction was, "wah, why so black one??" The tuna burger; patty abit salty, other than that, the burger is quite okay lah.


They made new friends easily. So, it was quite peaceful for me after meal, cos they played with them.


Another shot!!! Oh, btw, it's 1 for 1 for all their martini. We had raspberry and grapefruit this time round. But sorry to say, I think only lychee martini is good.



Natural rosiness from drinking. 


Best compliment ever...

Manager : do u workout?
Me : no...
Manager : how did you mantain your figure when you're already a mother of 2? (Was wearing very tight fit and I thought I was fat!)
Me : I think my figure could be better if I workout!!! Hahaha 

So flattered... Lol!!!


This boy is same age as Meimei!!! But look at their size difference??? OMG. Nobody believe me when I said Meimei is less than 3 years old!!! Cos of her size and the way she speaks/behaves, she looks like 4 years old now lor!!! 

Overall, I think this place is okay, nice ambience and good service. Worth a try, especially for dates!

Edited : 19th May 2014, 4:15pm

A friend brought me to Spruce (again) for lunch just now...


First time eating this; Foie Gras! And I finally understand why so many people love this now.



Salad becos we're on diet. But the serving is soooooooooo HUGE, I ate like 1/3 only.

Ziaja Skincare

Sponsored Review

Well, I'm pretty sure most of you have not heard of this brand cos, before the Black Box 1st Anniversary party, I didn't either. Here's a short intro about Ziaja...


The kind peeps at Ziaja has sent me two products for review and will be giving away two sets of the same products to my readers; two winners, one set each. Nice!!!

1) Marine Algae Smoothing Enzyme Peeling




Ok, 30+ skin, lol, I'm not 30 yet (lol) but it's okay, cos prevention is better than cure. Doesn't feel any tinge of dryness after the peel, it feels really smooth instead. I was quite taken aback by the smoothness, I thought it's just a gentle facial wash. 


That's how simple & fuss-free it is. And it smells like heaven. Furthermore, it's made from natural ingredients and therefore, it's very safe, even for sensitive skin. 

2) Marine Algae Smoothing Eye Cream



Most of my vain friends told me that eye cream is very very important, especially for ladies after 25 years old. Becos that's when we started to have aging signs like, wrinkles!!! Better start taking care ah!!!



Now now, HOW TO WIN?

2) Leave a comment with your email below. 

T&C : Only for addresses within Singapore. 

I will pick out two winners and Ziaja will send the products to you. 

This contest ends on 23rd May 2014.

Simple? Easy? Join now lor!!! =D
