Valentine’s Day Special: The Story about The Most Un-Romantic Boyfriend

14 Feb


Happy Valentine’s to all you love bugs!!!

 

Did you take leave or skip school just to celebrate today with your loved one?  Naughty naughty…

Well, V-day has never been anything special to me.  I remember that there was this one V-day where my bf brought me to eat char kway teow at the food court downstairs.  And the food court was NON-AIRCON somemore.  So unglam.  But in the 4 years that we were together, I don’t recall us celebrating V-day like there’s no tomorrow.  In fact, I think today he is going to bring me to that same non-aircon food court for duck noodles.  I guess the only comfort that I can get is that the duck noodles is surprisingly AWESOME.

My bf does not plan for anything on special occasions like birthdays, v-days, anniversaries, etc.  My friends said, “ohhh you must hint him!  Some guys don’t know what to do!

ahem…

HINT???

Don’t talk about HINT, okay.  Becuz even when I said it directly to his face, “you better plan something good!“, he still will not do it.  Then when I get all disappointed, he goes, “but everyday is so lovey dovey already, no need to celebrate on just one particular day“.

What… a… lame… cliche… line.

(-_-“)

oh somebody just kill me pls.

Since then, I have already given up on hinting / leaving clues / instructing / resorting to physical violence like pinch, spank, knead his flesh with my twig-like fingers / resorting to emotional blackmail like pretending to sulk, cry, displaying moody mood swings / etc.


BAH!  I hate V-days.

 

In the end, I just try and remember the good stuff.

Like how he would never fail send me to work & pick me up from work with  no complains.

And he would want me to get to know his friends & he makes the effort to know mine as well.

And he would give me a kiss me every now & then which makes me feel that he is being loving.

And he would tell jokes that make me laugh & life with him isn’t boring at all.  We would never fail to have topic to chat about all day.

He would rub ointment on my tummy when I’m getting one of those constipation days.  LOL.

He would be super patient with me during my PMS’y mood swings.

On CNY or mooncake festivals or anything chinese’y kind of celebrations, he would never fail to get my family some gifts relating to that festival.

When my parents were moving house, he had offered to help & had made multiple trips just to help them carry their stuffs from the old house and drive them to the new house.

He cared & offered advice to my brother when there was sort of a rough patch going on in my brother’s life.

Ok, I think I feel better about not having a romantic boyfriend on this V-day.

On top of that, I have been whining about how we were going ahead with the wedding preparations already, but I haven’t gotten a proper marriage proposal.

And guess what?

He did a surprise  me with a proposal last Friday, but it was so… … …

(-_-“)

I dunno whether to laugh or cry.

I think I shall go lie down now.

The Much Talked About: Oil-Cleansing Method

9 Feb


I think this is a gorgeous photo, but don’t know why they uploaded it so small.  =(

 

 

The OCM (Oil Cleansing Method) was probably invented a few years back.  The oldest source that I could trace was published back in year 2007, but I’m pretty sure it was invented during the caveman era.  JUST KIDDING.

I did a lot of research on this, mainly reading on what are the results that others have achieved.  Most of them have nice things to say, but a handful of them did not like the OCM.

I have tried sort of an OCM myself when I bought the Carrot Butter Cleanser from The Organic Pharmacy.  It was a small tub of cleanser but it lasted me about 2 weeks.  Read about my review HERE.  I don’t mind getting a full-size, but it’s way too expensive to get it in Singapore.  So I am hoping that my friend will be able to buy it for me when he goes over the London this March.  *prays hard*

 

I learnt that the carrier oil used is to dissolve impurities that are embedded in our pores.  Then when you use a hot towel to remove the oil, the heat/steam will open your pores & cleanse your skin at the same time.  I read online that the feedback received was that they experience fewer blackheads, clogged pores & clearer skin!

I never had the guts to use oil on my skin, but recently, I decided to just go for it.  So I tried using Extra Virgin Olive Oil for OCM, but it broke me out in cystic acne around my temples.  T.T  *cries hard*

 

… I was sooooooooooooo sad!!!  I should have stayed cautious & avoid OCM altogether!

But not to be defeated by the 1st attempt, I switched to Jojoba Oil & I achieved slightly better results with that.  Though I do not see any reduction in blackheads or clogged pores, my face does felt slightly moisturized after cleansing.  Not so tight & dry compared to regular cleansers.  But perhaps I have not used it long enough to see a HUGE major difference.  I’ll continue, though.  But I still prefer the Carrot Butter Cleanser from The Organic Pharmacy.

This is how I do it:

1)  Put about 5 drops of oil on my palm & rub my palms together to warm up the oil.  I know some people put like… 10-15 drops.  I dunno if it’s because more oil = higher efficiency… or maybe they just have a big face.

2)  Massage my face for about 1-2 minutes.  I concentrate more on the problem areas that has blackheads, whiteheads & congested skin.

3)  I use runny hot water from the shower to dampen my face towel.  Then I put it over my face for a couple of seconds until it starts to cool, then I wipe off in a circular motion.  Then repeat until all traces of oil are removed.

4)  I sometimes double-cleanse with a cleanser.

5)  Proceed with the rest of my skincare regime.

I guess the important thing is to do enough research to see which oil suits your skin most & try the OCM.  I initially thought that EVOO would be good, but then it broke me out. (argh… bad memories)   T.T  *wails hard*

 

So I did a little more research & found that Jojoba oil is an array of liquid wax ester which is similar to human sebum.  It also has this substance that is similar to collagen.  Awesome.  The oil is said to be suitable for almost all skin types.  I read that people usually use it as a moisturizer to prevent dryness, improve skin elasticity and suppleness.

As much as I would like to rave about the OCM, but it didn’t give an extremely positive result after almost 1 month.  But I will definitely still use this as a facial moisturizer.  And sometimes, I also mix a little of Jojoba oil with Rosehip oil for my body.  =D

I’ll sit on this one for a little bit.  No Berry Mii stamp of approval yet.

Will Products Go Bad on Our Skins???

8 Feb

And I mean skincare products that are made from natural ingredients that do not use parabens.

I do see some products that say on their label, “to be used within 6 months of opening“.  Or keep in a “cool, dark place“.  This is to ensure that you use the products when it is at its freshest & before it starts to turn rancid or sprout a little mold (does it even bred mold? hmm).

Then I read this blog post by Vivawoman (link is HERE) & she blogged about Storage Tips for Sunscreen.  Good tips, by the way.

However, as I read her post, somehow my brain were extracting ideas & thoughts from all over the maps of my mind.  Finally, all the puzzles pieced together & came out as, “hmmm I wonder about the natural skincare products that we slap on our faces?  I’m sure not ALL of the products are absorbed into the skin.  Perhaps some residues are left behind on the surface on our skins.  So… … … in other words, that’s going to turn bad in a few hours, right???????

 

*HORRORS*

(O_O) !!!!!!!!!

So…………………………… seriously, the question is: would that skincare ‘residue’ turn bad???

I will not believe it if anyone told me that the products are going to get 100% absorbed into my skin.  Cannot be.  Surely there will be residue left behind.  Even if it’s a little bit.  And don’t tell me you don’t mind a LITTLE BIT OF MOLD.  Mold is still mold.  Rancid will still be rancid.  If you don’t mind, then it’s as good as saying “oh i touched a little bit of pee, but THAT’S OKAY.  It’s only A LITTLE BIT“…….. then proceeds to eat KFC original 2-piece chicken.

(-_-) <-- the look of despise.  you filthy little thing.

 

ANYWAY, back to the topic.

With those natural skincare products that we put on our faces, we then walk around (introduce air)… and we sweat (introduce water)… and then stroll under the sun (expose to heat).  Won’t that make the natural skincare turn bad even quicker than we keep it in the humid bathroom?

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME ANSWER THIS QUESTION???????????

I’M DYING FROM CURIOUSITY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm… perhaps we apply an extremely thin layer & just massage/pat/slap our faces till it either gets absorbed by either our faces or it gets absorbed by our fingers.  hahaha… that is one method.

I might be just over-thinking this.  But it’s a thought, a possible thought.  hahahaa

Peace.

Angry PMS Blog

7 Feb

I hate it when people have double-standards.

If you want to enforce a rule, make sure it’s the same for everyone.  Why bother to set a rule but you don’t expect everyone to follow?

It’s like asking the Singapore Government to say, “NO DRINKING & DRIVING… … … but ministers can drink & drive”.

RUBBISH.

I detest people who don’t use their brains & create a problem, then when other people are unable to solve that problem, the problem-creator scolds the innocent.

It’s like when you only have 3 bedrooms & you adopt 10 kids.  You hire a designer to modify & squeeze these 10 kids inside.  Mission Impossible?  OF COURSE NOT!!!  Your designer is a magician & manages to house all the kids under 1 roof.  But then, you go ahead & adopt another 5 more.  There is absolutely no more space to modify the rooms.  Then when the kids all cry & complain that they have nowhere to sleep, you scold your designer.  (-_-“)

WHERE IS THE LOGIC??????  *cries in anguish*

I absolutely hate people who insults others.

Like… “oh who are you to talk to me?!  If you want to say anything, please go get a degree first”.

or… “wahhh you so fat, when you walk towards me, I can feel you approaching”.

or… “why your pimples grow on your nose?  It looks like a beacon”.

or… “you so skinny, when the wind blows, you sure fly away”.

or… “people who went to ITE before are dumb & useless”.

WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT???????

I also don’t like people who talks in Da Vinci Codes.  And when you ask to clarify further, they think you are irritating.

%&*#!*+^#$(*&!^!

DO NOT LIKE HORMONAL ZITS!!!

NEVER.  TOUCH.  MY.  BED!!!!
