No excuses, Just do it!

Have you ever hesitate when you wanna do something? Maybe because of money, time, weather, transport problem, or any other reasons that stop you from doing something? May be because you don't have a companion. It would be worse if it's something you have been wanting to do and you still hesitate just because of lil issues.

For me, I always tell myself, "Just do it if I can." Before, I always hesitate and think too much when I wanna do something. Mostly, it was because of my parents, may be I wasn't sure if they allow me to do (I'm weak in front of my parents), sometimes I find it troublesome to go somewhere, sometimes I would think "oh it looks like it's gonna rain." All these are excuses, seriously! Deep in my heart, I want to go somewhere or do something so badly. We hesitate because it's out of our comfort zone.

Sometimes I hear my friends saying they wanna do something but they don't have a companion. We differ from each other, our goals are different. If you wanna do something when only your friend join, just wait till the end of your life la. Yes, it would be more fun if you have a companion, but depend what you wanna do. Sometimes, you can just do it alone, maybe like visiting a country which has lesser entertainments, if you know what I'm trying to say. You can backpack and you could meet other backpackers too! Or through Couchsurfing.

I have a friend who wanted to meet her superstar idol from Hong Kong. Hardly got chance to meet right? Free entrance some more. But because she thought the event would be cancelled due to the bad weather, so she didn't go. Unfortunately, the event still went on. See, too much hesitation making yourself regret.

When I came to KL, the ChurpOut event by Nuffnang was held. The blogger celebrities I know like Cheesie, Audrey and Timothy Tiah would be there, and I was excited that I must meet them and take picture with them. As I need to take a cab to reach there, so I hesitated due to my safety. I'm afraid of taking cabs after reading too much news about taxi rape or rob. I wandered around at the taxi station thinking like an hour to decide whether to go or not. Then I took out my little gut and I went to the event. Lucky I did and I was so glad that I meet them and also a new friend from Couchsurfing.

As I have little friends in KL, so mostly, if I wanna attend events which I'm interested, if I can't find anyone, I would just go myself. Waiting for a companion is just gonna make me miss a lot of experiences or opportunities.

I'm writing this because I heard too much from friends saying what's stopping them from doing something. Sometimes it's really not a big issue.

If it's time, maybe try to adjust your schedule. If really can't, then next time lo. (that's why sometimes my schedule is quite tight because I try to make it to every events lol)

If it's girlfriend/boyfriend issue, hah! It's good to respect your bf/gf, but for me, I don't really care if my bf tells me "I don't allow you to go Japan with your friends; You can't go to your friend's party because your ex would be there." *roll eyes*

If it's money issue, try to save. 2 years, 4 years, as long as you try to save, your dream would come true one day.

If it's weather issue....can you go long piang (hit the wall)?

My weakness is my parents. If they say NO, siap, all my plans will be throwing into the bin. Because I respect them, I don't want they get mad or worried. But....sometimes I just break the rule. Or I tell them firmly, I WANT TO GO! You have to know your limit, as long as it's not something bad that's gonna harm you or your family, then should be fine. I know my dad's gonna stop me from travelling with my boyfriend, ahh~ let's see how I deal with it.

Ganbatte kudasai darlings. Just do it before you regret.

April Favorites

I tried some new products, and have became my fav!

First, the Sephora favorites: 

Naked 3 that comes with four eye primer samples
Supposedly, I wanna get Naked 2. Then I did the final comparison and realised I prefer the colours of Naked 3. Naked 2 is more to brownish, goldish and less pinkish ; while Naked 3 consists pinkish and brownish/goldish. So, I like Naked 3 more ^^

I've been looking for great mask since I have a sensitive skin. When the weather is bad, or in an unclean environment, or during period, I'll get acne. Then I found this mask, did some research, and most of the reviews were saying it's so great that their skin is super smooth after using it. And also say, the blackheads are lessen. They sound like the acne would immediately gone off after using it =.=" Even the celebrities use it before the red carpet to look awesome. So I bought and gave it a try.
 It's Glam Glow mask, a mud mask which smells minty.
Yes, it's great, but not that powerful where the acne would really disappear after using it. I can feel my skin is smoother and more hydrating. It's comfortable. 

1. Benefit's Porefessional Primer. I've tried many many primers but this is my fav, it makes my make up stay and mattify my skin for long hours. This POREfessional actually minimizes your pores
Some people would afraid it clog pores because it's for minimizing pores. I've tried this for months, I use it every time before putting my make up on, NO, it doesn't clog
It's great for oily skin like me. After putting this primer on, my skin still feels matte after hours. It can be applied after make up too. 

2. Stila concealer. I always look for concealer with great coverage yet not cakey and not looking thick. This does quite a good coverage, except for the very dark red spots as I have a problematic skin sometimes. But it's still alright, it doesn't cover totally like a photoshop, but the weakness can be barely seen. 

I love waterproof make up ever since I started to make up myself during my teens. All my mascaras and eyeliners have to be waterproof! Look for eyeliner that contains wax, they are mostly waterproof.
This is NYX eyeliner that slides on, glides on, stays on, turns on, waterproof and extreme shine! The colors are in Jet Black and Azure. I always have a thing for turquoise color. 

with NYX Jet Black and Azure eyeliner. Wear it to beach or pool party!
Really waterproof, I've tried :)

Benefit Seductive Body Mist.
Did I mention I'm a bitch? I mean...I have a strong nose. I can smell things that normal people can't really smell, super sensitive. So I love nice scented stuffs (who doesn't? =.=").
This is a body oil mist which I use after shower, or sometimes before sleep. Its smell is light, a bit sweet, young and it's seductive *whit whit* It's an oil spray which moisture your body and you won't feel oily, the oil just absorbed into your body in few seconds.
They have perfume for that scent too, but I prefer the body mist as perfume would smell a lil bit stronger.

Ok, end of Sephora favs. 

If you're someone who always put on eyelid tape like me, you can try this! 
It's lace eyelid tape, very natural compare to any other kind of tape, it's almost invisible. My portrait photo above, I'm using the lace eyelid tape too. 

My fav gadget of the month, my Samsung Note 10.1 (2014 edition)! Tadaaaa....
I heard its functions are same as Note 3. What I like about it is, it's very friendly when it comes to making notes and plans, it comes with a stylus. I use it mainly for my make up portfolio. Want to know more? I can review it if you wish :)

My fav book, the 5 years Questions and Answers Journal.

It's has 365 questions for a year, for you to answer each a day. It's like a diary but it asks you random questions. This is a 5 year journal, so you answer it for 5 years, and after you finish the whole book, you can see how your opinions change in these 5 years. 
Great for recording moments. I love to write, that's why I have a blog, but I don't blog everyday, so I got myself this book to jot down my daily life :)

I got this crazy love love with this round red hat. I actually looked for it in many places, I even asked my friend to look for it in Macau. I then found it at Hat Attack in KL. Many places are selling this kind of hat but they don't have red (it's too popular). It has to be RED

Looking good? haha
I feel great when few strangers (at different time) actually approached me to tell me my hat looks good on me. I don't get "real life" compliments (most compliments are from social media) from strangers  from my fashions or the accessories I wear, but this hat, hell yeah!

My Little Cube Enterprise

Hello loves!

I'm not sure if most of you seen this kind of cubes store which sells variety kind of stuffs. I first saw this kind of store in Singapore, and I spent quite a long time shopping in there because too much cute and creative stuffs! I was thinking how great if Brunei has this, then not long later Brunei started to have this kind of store. It's great place for getting gifts, a place with lots of choices.

 They sell original branded bags too, like Coach, Micheal Kors, etc. 

Cosmetics like Wet n Wild, Cover Girl, Naked palette, etc.

Selfie gadgets are a hit now! "But first, let me take a selfie *snap*"

 And a lot more stuffs, gadgets, party tools, etc. 
ProTape is now available in KB too, it's kinda popular, I see it all over Facebook recently. If you do sports, you should consider getting this! "It helps to relief muscle pain, overused/fatigue muscles, swelling, cramps and etc. "

Sometimes we don't know where to get gifts, or products that it seem to be only available outside Brunei. Now, you could find the things you want from this kind of cube store, by shopping in a store with over hundred of cubes selling hundred of variety stuffs.
