Highlights of my 2012!

Just before this year comes to an end, feel like doing a recap on all the happy and significant things that happened to me so maybe few years down the road, I've got positive things to look back on and remind myself how lucky I was. Hope to do this for every year. Teehee. Okay, here goes...

1. Meeting QiuQiu (Feb)

My first time meeting one of my fave bloggers, QiuQiu at City Square Mall while she did  a flea. the crowd was gone but she was still there so really happy I got to take a photo with her!^^ I really like her down-to-earth personality and being herself. Hope could get to see my other fave bloggers next time.

2. First Dyed Hair (Mar)

Decided to change hair colour and turns out well at first but now colour fade to brownish, orangey red. Lol, still a nice experience and I look younger hahas. Hope to try other colours or dip dye my hair soon.

3. First Flea Market Shopping/With JX, S & F (Mar)

With new found friends from year 1, get to shop at flea market at insanely cheap prices for clothes and get to hang out with them! I am starting to like flea market shopping and hope to try going to salvation army for thrifting too! Hees. Thank you all for the good times!

4. Baking Cookies/Watching Horror Movie (Mar/Oct)

Gathered at YX's house to bake cookies for the and watch horror movie for the first time, not really scary. But October we did it again, plan was to watch 2-3 horror ones but end up only 1 cos we're tired or don't feel like watching.

Technically not my first horror movie cos I watched Paranormal Activity 2 sometime ago on the Internet but most of the time covered my eyes and fast forward the movie, and other bits and pieces of other movies, lol. Movie scenes haunt me in my dreams, sigh. I'm way too timid for this. Too easy to be scared. Note to self: Don't watch horror movies again.

5. Visiting ArtScience Museum at MBS (Apr)

First time there too for Titanic Exhibition and taking lots of self shots with YX and the beautiful scenery!^^

6. Kim Hyun Joong Fanmeet/Concert (May)

This probably is the most happy event for the year. Every time I thought of the concert atmosphere, seeing KHJ up close, shaking his hand really makes me excited and smiling. Never thought this would happen to me, to soak in all the music and ambiance. Being there with YX too, seeing how he took on the stage, talking to us, absolutely thankful for meeting KHJ!

7. LASplash Workshop (May)/ Shiseido Workshop (Sept)/ Shu Uemura (Sept-Oct)

Something I never thought I would do, hahas but great experience  with makeup and skincare products, working with an atas brand, meeting good colleagues and becoming a dresser for a day and see how those models work their stuff!^^

8. Gardens by the Bay (Oct/Dec)

Shall always remember the pretty flowers, breathtaking waterfall and the Christmas decorations plus all the nice photos took there!

9. USS Trip (Oct)

Technically not my first time in USS but playing the rides? Yes. Fun trip with YX, first time heard myself screaming at the top of my lungs, eating their expensive food and going on almost all the rides!(:

10. ASTA STARDA Conference (Nov)

School sponsored, get to see the MBS convention centre, listen to all business talks, eating all the classy food, making new friends from new class!

11. SY's K-Attack Concert (Nov)

First time in Esplanade Theatre, watch the NYP's CO performed K-pop music, funny conductor and awesome company!^^ Love the music~

12. Meeting for Class BBQ/New Classmates (Dec)

Lastly, never thought I would enjoyed it, but it was nice hanging out with some year 1 classmates, talking to them, eating good food for BBQ. Then, first outing with the class girls, doing Christmas exchange and having a nice time together. Thank you for the sweet moments.

Well, that concludes the highlights of 2012, sure there's many upset things but reminded by all these good stuff made me realised I'm still one lucky girl!Hehes, hope next year will be nice to me too.

Happy New Year's Eve!:D

The Little Things-CZ12, Gran's Birthday and Meetup with SKYHP

As much as I would like to deny, the year is really ending soon. Time always passes real quick when it comes to December. School starting soon...

Impromptu CZ12 movie with family on Christmas' eve, hehes was really excited to see Jackie Chan in flim again, with the fact he directed and produced his own movie too. He is someone who I watched while growing up through movies and TV shows. Still remembered the first ever movie I went to watch got him as the lead actor too, together with Shu Qi. Sigh, those carefree days as a child~

Overall awesome movie, really action packed and all the cool fighting moves!A bit draggy though but good time spent with family in the cinema,hehes!^^

Christmas day went for Gran's birthday celebration, as usual all the yummy food but this time less bloated after eating. Luckily I stop myself from getting more food. Self control eh. And just realised I could transfer videos to phone to watch!So yay to no more boredom when visiting Gran's house!^^
Countless of movies I could watch on phone, albeit kinda small and downloading to phone takes quite a while.Heh.

Did some school work for Boxing Day, quite productive but it goes downhill from there,lol, haven't touch on any subjects after that>.<

Oh and as I'm a really big fan of How to Train Your Dragon movie, found they have a TV series on it totally took my mind off things and made me happy just watching it, love the show!Hopefully more episodes would come out soon!Fave Character: Night Fury/Toothless!:p

With my pretty girls for a short dinner at Nex on Thursday. Ate at Lenas/MOF. Ordered their set meal for $8.90, worth it with a large portion of food. really fulling after that(:

Think I looked quite funny in all photos, my thick eyebrows really left me clueless how to shape it. Anyway, enjoyed their company! Thanks for the Christmas goodies Kelly!^^

Supposedly to go for J's birthday party yesterday, but didn't went in the end, I know you'll be really angry. I feel bad and really sorry though it probably is meaningless now. Doubt she will see this still, buy hope she had a good time. All the best to you J!

Time to draw up new resolutions and see if I did achieve any I made at the beginning of the year.

Have a great week!

The Little Things-Getting into the Xmas spirit!

This week was quite happening for me, spent time with friends for Christmas "Celebration". Another year coming to an end soon. Term break is almost up and still left so many things undone. No matter, shall press on and finished up my work asap.

Anyway, on Monday went out with my newly made friends in class to Gardens by the Bay...again. Hahas, so even though I went there not too long ago, this time is different with Christmas season around the corner so the place was decked with Christmas decorations.

Here was my nails' design for the week!^^

Went into Flower Dome, unfortunately Cloud Forest was closed for maintenance. Still, it was pretty with all the Christmas displays~

Had a great time taking photos with the girls, with a pro photographer around and just chatting. Head to Pizza Hut for dinner and had the pizza specially made for Christmas, it was really good and filling. Eaten a main dish too heh. Had our Christmas presents exchange and so coincidence bought the same thing as Cally,heh. >.<

Really thankful for meeting such nice people and getting to know them a little bit more!

Thank you girls for the sweet gifts!^^

Spent a really long time making these bracelets for my fave girls in time for our meeting on Friday, luckily I made it in time and hopefully they will like it!Also a sneak peek into a project I'm doing, post coming next year, hahas cos still have unfinished matters and lack of time so keep a lookout if you are interested!:p

Hehes, its so nice to give people sweet things and treats cos I could see them light up with a smile and I like how it feels(:
Another Christmas presents exchange with them, having a secret santa and knowing who I'll give the present to. Just spent a short time for a simple dinner and chat. Thanks all for making me laugh and the lovely gifts!

One of the birthday presents for HF.
And me! Lol, so long didn't take a self shot, think I grown fatter sitting all day in front of computer and    skin complexion is still far away from what I called perfect:/
A pleasant surprise from uncle today too, received another Christmas present!Hehes!Listening to all the Christmas songs, the cold weather, watching Christmas shows all to get into the Christmas spirit though I don't celebrate it. Just feel good and happy on the inside becos of the festive season!

Glad to have people around that still stick with me, communicate with me, showing concern, showing love. Thank you to all of you!:')

Sadly I'm still troubled, thinking of all the bad things everyday. I seriously hope to get through everything in time. Having a constant worry of not doing well this time round, or maybe for rest of the school life,its bugging me everyday of the worst case scenarios. I can't take it. I want to confront but things definitely will turn out sore, awkward and the loss. Help.

Have a fantastic holiday and Christmas everyone!

The Little Things- Movies, Shopping, BBQ!

Hello Hello! Just ended MST last Monday, finally got to catch up on my sleep and movies!Went to watch Ah Boys to Men with mum, very lag I know but at least it was still showing;) Definitely interesting and many funny scenes and jokes! Can't wait for part 2!~ Oh yeah got QiuQiu acting in it too, one of my fave bloggers, hehes.

A day out with YX to catch Rise of the Guardians, early in the morning. Hahas, almost empty theatre with less than 10 people. Pretty good, love love Jack Frost!Look really cool in the movie:p

After that decided to shop for Chinese New Year's clothes, bought a lot of things especially YX in addition of Christmas presents for her family. Poor girl have to carry so many bags of stuff home:( But we had fun! Realised after I bought the clothes, some was quite disappointing cos doesn't fit me like I want it to, too short or too tight. This means really have to exercise already, what i dread most. If not gotta lookout for another set of clothes,heh.

A short field trip with some classmates to Chinatown on Thursday, tiring but it was nice hanging out with them and one of the nicest feeling I had in a long time. Thank you guys!^^

Saturday, meet up with JX and Fionnie for a walk around town, then head for class BBQ. Food was great, many thanks to the classmates helping to BBQ the food and we just sat around socialising. Hahas, kinda awkward but had a good time catching up on their lives and realised maybe all our school lives are not so different after all. Same worry, same frustrations faced. Jiayou everyone, maybe it will turn out better soon.

Nails of the day!(:

Sums up my week of activities, but seriously really many projects yet to touched on, have not finish editing my PTNs and individual assignments and other things to take care of. 2 weeks+ of break is not enough. Just hoping to pull through and get as much things done as possible.

On the bright side more fun days with friends soon!~

Have a great week!:D

The Little Things-Field Trips & Breaking Dawn!

Yes 3 more weeks to break!Can's wait for Mid-Sem Test to be over so could catch up on my rest. Luckily only 1 test which means I could get an early break,hehe;)

Mentally and physically drained out. Always spent my weekends at home trying to finish all the work I need to do, need to get out next week!Kinda suffocating with so much work to do,sigh.

Never mind, I shall overcome it, and try my best to score well!Everyone let's push on!^^

Anyway moving on to some happy things, first is I went on 2 field trips for different subjects with my project group and class respectively.

Visited Haw Par Villa, very deserted place that not many people visit now but it was my first time stepping into the theme park, was most looking forward to seeing the Ten Courts of Hell, based on our Chinese legends/mythologies. Insanely warm that day, was sweating non-stop literally.

Saw many interesting/kinda grossed out statues and the stories behind them. Glad I finally went to see, everyone should really go Haw Par Villa once in their lifetime, hahas. Wonder if its gonna be demolished soon though...

The Haw Par brothers' villa last time before it was destroyed during WWII.

Then another field trip was to Sembawang Country Club, had to do a report on it so we were given a brief talk about the place and get to do a fast tour there, but only managed to see some areas, mainly the golf course. Hahas, but no matter, the scenery was beautiful^^

Finally, an impromptu movie date with YX to catch the highly anticipated Breaking Dawn Part 2, after years of chasing, it finally ended this year. Ending was pretty awesome! Love the whole saga though book was definitely better except for some draggy parts,heh.

Oh and I can't get over how pretty the actress for Renesmee is, such sharp face features o.O
Super glad went for this movie, was on the verge of breaking down, but after watching, mood was lifted and well I get to escape from reality for awhile.Hehes.
Time to crashed back to reality, hopefully, praying hard I/my group could finished all work on time and deliver the reports for a worthy grade A.

Have a nice week!(:
