All Your Perfect Imperfections.

Hi everyone!

First of all, W O W.
Didn't realize that it's been a month since I last blogged.
Time really flies...

Anyway, my break is ending in a week.
Meaning, it's time for the holiday to end and time to go back to reality.
*inserts sad face*

Today, I'm going to be blogging about EYEBROWS!

I'm going to start this off by letting you guys know that I have non-existent eyebrows.

*inserts super sad face*

Well, it's not exactly non-existent.
I actually have eyebrow hair, but for some very sad and unfortunate reason, it's really light and thin.
And it basically looks non-existent.

How great that thick eyebrows are back in trend now right?






I have basically coped with having very little eyebrows since I was a kid.
The only difference is that back then, it didn't really bother me.
All I cared about were barbie dolls LOL.

I usually use eyebrow pencils to fill in my sparse brows.
It used to take me quite some time to get it to be perfect, but after a couple of years doing it at 8 in the morning, I've gotten handier at it.

"Design My Eyebrow" eyebrow pencil by The Face Shop

The eyebrow pencil by The Face Shop is my go-to eyebrow pencil.
I don't exactly remember how and why I decided to use this eyebrow pencil over the others, but I've been using it since I started filling in my brows.

It has been of great service to me.
However, recently I found myself wanting more.
I do not like how eyebrows are considered "make up".
I do not like how I wake up looking different than how I do when I leave the house.

So, I've been considering eyebrow embroidery, a semi-permanent treatment (?).




I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the last picture.
I would say Bluunis has to be one of the most famous eyebrow embroidery service provider.

I did my research and read up on other people's experiences regarding the embroidery.
Honestly, I'm not really convinced because each experience is different from the other and there isn't exactly one guaranteed outcome.
So, I'm doubtful.
And I'm a big sissy when it comes to pain.

My other option is eyebrow powder!

Benefit "Brow Zings"

Anastasia Beverly Hills "Brow Powder Duo"

Choices, choices.
And now to decide.
If you guys have any thoughts/opinions, do drop me comment!
It will be much appreciated :3






till then, xx.

No Regrets, Do You Know What That Means?

Hi everyone!

Every single time I come on my blog, feeling like posting something, I always wonder if people actually do read this?

Haha, well if there are, you could drop me a comment on things you would want me to blog about.
If the topic is relevant to me or if I have any opinions on the topic, I will be sure to blog about it!

Moving on, today I will be blogging about relationships.
Yup, relationships.

Well, I am obviously no master in the matter.
(you would know if you followed me on twitter lol)
But recently I saw this statement on tumblr :
"The scary thing about dating is that you are either going to marry that person or break up"

Realistically thinking, the statement is 100% true.
I mean when you date someone the outcome is either : marry him or break up.

It doesn't really matter what kind of a relationship you have.
In the sense that, if it's a serious relationship, you may marry the dude or you guys will break up.
Or if it's just a fling, you may still marry the dude or you guys will break up.
Although, the chances of a break up happening is probably higher for the latter.

However, I think when you are in a relationship, especially at my age (20),
I don't think you should be at all thinking about the statement.
I mean, honestly, you're 20.
You're young.
Do you really want to be thinking about whether or not you'll marry the next guy you shag?

I believe in living in the moment, and that cannot be truer for relationships.
I mean unless you're like 40 and you're worried about whether or not you will be able to start a family,
then maybe living in the moment is not as applicable and suitable of a motto for you.
Why burden yourself with matters that you should not be worrying about.
I mean when you're 20, you should be worrying about graduating, getting your first class honours, how to get a higher score in flappy bird, what clothes to wear to uni.
Or if you're working, what clothes to wear to work, how to suck up to your boss (lol).
Whether or not you will be marrying the guy you're currently dating, is definitely one of the last few items in your worry list.

If it's meant to be, it will be

So really, just chill about it.
That doesn't mean you go around dating criminals or drug dealers.
Be wary of who you choose to date.
But really, don't be going around looking for a hubby candidate.
You may end up scaring off someone who's real great ;)

So here's my two cents worth.
Hopefully you guys enjoy reading this.

till then, xx!

Blurred Lines.

Hi all!

It is currently 2:04AM here, and I'm half having a How I Met Your Mother marathon and half blogging.

Since it's the holidays, I have too much free time.
Yup.

As sad as it sounds, I admit it is somewhat normal in the world today for people to separate or divide themselves based on "ranks" in the society.
Okay I apologize for saying that for the people reading who wished they had more time.
But isn't this kind of a common problem for people on breaks?
They end up having too much time on their hands and wasting by watching tv/surfing the internet and etc.
So I decided since I'm doing most of the wasting time activities I just mentioned above ^
I should at least update my blog.

So today I'm going to talk about snobby people.
This is not at all random, in fact I encountered one VERY snobby person today.

snob
snäb/
noun
  1. 1.
    a person with an exaggerated respect for high social position or wealth who seeks to associate with social superiors and dislikes people or activities regarded as lower-class.



There are many many not so nice people in this world.
And snobs are one of them.
They like to think that they're superior to everyone else and other people who are not in their "social group" are regarded as unimportant.

But that doesn't stop it from being completely wrong and ridiculous.

And snobs take that to a whole new level by belittling others who they don't see as their equal.

It makes me so furious because :

Who do they think they are?

Seriously, just because you're richer or more successful than another person, it does not make you better than him/her.
It might mean that you're generally better at your job or you have a larger range of skills or that you're simply lucky, but it definitely does not make you a better person.
You can be a complete ass and be a freaking billionaire.
Your friends probably stick with you either because they are kissing your ass/want to be associated with you cause of your money and position OR they secretly hate you but are too nice to tell you off.
It puzzles me how these people think just because they are rich they can boss people around.
Hmm I would think they probably grew up in an environment where people have discriminated them people because they weren't successful.
So maybe they hold a grudge and grow up being the asses that they promised they'd never be when they were younger.
It's still no excuse for being a snob.
If you grew up being in the lower tier of the hierachy of society, shouldn't you know how it feels like to be discriminated instead of being a snob to people who are in your old position?

To all the snobs out there,
I pity you.
You must be real pathetic to feel the need to belittle other people, to gain confidence by taking others' away.
SHAME ON YOU HUMAN, SHAME ON YOU!

And to all the other people who are not snobs,
you can ;

- stand up to them.
Instead of just thinking "fuck them and fuck what they think", you say it to their face.
Maybe the slap in the face will work.
But chances are, it won't.
Cause they are daft.

Which leads me to the next option :

- ignore them and just stay away.
If you're not associated with them, they probably will just ignore you too and judge you silence.
LOL granted not a great situation but fuck them and fuck what they think.
You're better off without them and they can just continue living in their own delusional world.
At least you won't be affected.
Eliminate the negativity in your life~


Sigh, like I said, this world is full of many many many not so nice people.
We just have to learn how to deal with it.
Because as much as it would be nice to think you can change them, you probably will only have like a 0.01% rate of success.
I'm not trying to demotivate you or just asking you to be passive.
It's good to stand up for what you believe.
But part of life is learning to accept things.
What's the point of getting all worked up over snobs who are obviously not worth your time.
Call me naive, but I always believe karma is a bitch if you are one.
Shit happens, we just got to learn how to flush the toilet bowl.

I'm sorry for how the metaphor turned out to be.........







'till then, xx.

I've Been Waiting For Someone Like You.


So my exam's are over.

Well not officially.

At least not for me.

Cause the worst thing that could've happened during an exam period,
happened to me.

Yep.
I missed a paper.

I've typed out the story to friends too many times
so here goes a short summary :

I was in uni @ 8.15 am, thinking my paper was at 9 am, stoning at the usual spot I meet up with my friends. After waiting for quite some time, I decided to call my friends and I couldn't reach any of them; their phones went to voicemail straight away. After calling multiple friends multiple times, it hit me. "Maybe my exam's at 8" - and I rushed to the hall just to find out I'm 1 minute and 49 seconds late. And I was barred from entering the exam.

I have to admit, it sucks. It sucks so hard.
But it is inevitably my fault.
My fault for mislooking the timetable.
My fault for not realizing earlier.
My fault for not rechecking the timetable.

No one else to blame but myself.

Now now I'm not being sad and sulky.
I'm just stating a fact and self-reflecting - something people these days are to afraid to do.
Rather than understanding the real problem, we direct our attention to other factors to distract ourselves.
But facts are facts and if you're at fault, you're at fault.
What's the point of blaming other things and people?
If you're wrong, you admit it.
It's really that simple.

It's probably why I was and am so chilled about the matter.
It's cause I've learnt the reason and accepted it.
And now, I have to move on and decide on my next move.

I sent an appeal for a resit exam.

Here's to hoping that the board approves it.
Please?

So Wake Me Up, When It's All Over.

Hi guys!
It's been a preeeettyyyy long while since I last blogged
so I decided to blog on something more "significant" today.

But before that, 

Selamat Hari Raya Haji to my fellow Muslim friends!


WARNING : CONTINUE READING AT YOUR OWN EXPENSE

.
.
.
.

So today, I will be blogging about Chinese curse words.
That's right, you read it right.
Chinese freaking curse words.

For those of you who have no idea what Chinese curse words are,

I honestly think it is one of the most ridiculous curse words of all that I know;
not to say I'm fluent in THAT many languages but I know a handful.
It is simply nonsense to me because it all doesn't really make sense you know?

Let's pick up an example shall we?
MA HAI 
(highlight to see above)

So that basically means "mother's vagina".
I don't know about you, but to me, how on earth is saying "mother's vagina" an insult?
First of all, whoever who uses that has a mother and they should be at least insulted using it in the first place.
And how does using "mother's vagina" to so called "scold" someone, make any sense?
You came from that freaking hole.
If there was no "mother's vagina" for you to come out from, you would have rotted in the uterus
or get tangled in the umbilical cord while your mother was in labour or something.
You'd be like,
"mom, yeah mom I'm ready to come out now. wait whut I'm stuck here? okeh."

Secondly, Chinese curse words annoy me cause they are sexist.
If there is any gender involved in any of them, the abundance of those words emphasis on female genitals and mothers or a combination of both.

It is insane.
Referring back to my first point, it already doesn't make any sense.
And now they choose a side to emphasis on for their not-making-any-sense-ness?
I am bewildered.

I don't judge.
I just personally don't think it's a smart (lol) insult.
Like if you take a step back and think, "what am I really saying here?", you'd get what I mean.

But if anything, all the curse words don't really make sense no?
Like fuck.
It basically means sex.
So.. SEX YOU!

'till then.

See Beneath Your Beautiful.

Hihihi.
It's been about 2 months since I last updated my blog.
If there ARE actually people reading this, my deepest apologies.
I can't exactly say I've been caught up with things because well the fact is that I have been on sem break since like a month and 3 weeks ago.
And in that span of 7 weeks, I have ate and ate and ate and slept and slept and slept and exercised.
See the ratio of eat to sleep to exercise?
It is standing at a very pathetic 3:3:1.
At this rate, I'll turn into a fatty in no time.

I find holidays very weird.
Cause before the holidays, you have all these plans in your head and you're like,
"Yup during the holidays I'll be doing this and that and eating healthy and catching up on my sleep."
Well out of all those 'this and that'-s, I definitely slept a lot.
Like A LOT.
So much sleep I had, that now when I have anything less than 8 hours of snooze, I wake up really fatigue.
And I'll spend the whole day slugging around in the house.

Aside sleeping, I spent money during the holidays.
A LOT OF MONEY.
The context of a lot here for money is more than that of sleep.
So.............. yeah.
I bought way too many things.
Which if I were to be broke (like now), I would be able to live without.
Sigh.
I keep in mind that as a future accountant, I will need to learn to be more thrifty.
Can you imagine, when my future boss asks me,
"Hey Yenlin, I want to buy this for the company bla bla bla."
"SURE! Get it! It's such a deal!"
.................
yup.

I really need to learn to curb this shopaholic problem of mine.
Really is an understatement.
If my boyfriend were to be reading this post, he'd be nodding all the way and giving me the UH HUH look.
Meh.

Well, the holidays is technically over.
It's just me, still in the holiday mood and not going for classes :x

On another note, can I just say that my timetable this semester is SHIT.
Well, not literally. But if it had to be another object other than a timetable, it'd be shit.
I have a class until 8 on Tuesdays, which is absolute NONSENSE.
WHY TAYLOR'S WHY.
I PAY MY FEES.
I DO WELL IN MY EXAMS.

Y U PUNISH ME


So yeah. Just done sorting out some new songs in my iTunes library.
And I feel achieved.

If you're in Malaysia, particularly in the PJ/KL region, you would know that the weather is SEX today.
I iz no kiddingz. The weather is just beautiful.
All I was missing today was a warm cup of lemon tea from Coffea Coffee.
With amazing music (Buble, Timberlake, the works ;3) and the weather,
I was having one of the best days of my holiday.
As I'm typing now, I am blessed with the beautiful orgasmic sweet sweet voice of Justin Timberlake doing his thing to my ears.




You would think his famous songs are good.
His underrated ones are equally as amazing.
I for one thing JT could do no harm recording more songs like the one above hehehe.









Well I guess this is as far as my pretty empty blog post goes.
Till then; xx.
