New Year Resolutions of 2011

11 Jan

I shall file this under “About Berry Mii” because this is describing a little part of me.

As I have promised myself, I have done up my very 1st NYR (New Year Resolutions) for year 2011!!!

And again, I have procrastinated because New Year passed like… more than a week ago.  (-_-“)    Which is why, the very first item on my NYR list is (not in any particular order)…

#1 – Don’t procrastinate.  Don’t be lazy.

#2 – Follow my facial masking routine or else I will get clogged pores, dead skin & that will eventually lead to pimples.  Don’t be lazy.

#3 – Attempt to be happy for my future wedding.  The wedding preparations are so bothersome.  I haven’t even started anything & I am already feeling sian* (no mood).  Don’t be lazy.

#4 – Strive to combat cold sores & eczema!  I read that I should be taking Lysine supplements if I want to reduce the outbreak of cold sores.  That is why I am ordering them from iHerbs!  My friend orders her skincare products & supplements from them too, so it should be… … safe?  I hope.  Oh well, I’ll be the guinea pig & try it out first.  If I don’t receive my delivery, I’ll be damn sad.

#5 – Try to be satisfied with my single-eyelids.  Stop thinking about going for double-eyelid surgery.  Anyway, as I’m starting to age & skin starts to sag, I am already beginning to form a double-eyelid crease.  =\   Dunno whether I should be happy or not.

#6 – Try not to think about evil thoughts towards another human being, even if they are being superbly ungrateful / spiteful / vicious.  I am not exactly what you would call religious.  But I think if I were to visualize some kind of diety in front of me, I would still feel guilty if I have murdeous thoughts.  Imagine what would Buddha or Goddess of Mercy think of me if they knew I was wishing someone dead.  They would look at me with disapproving eyes.



#7 – Get rid of that irritating freckle on my chin.  It appeared recently when a pimple grew at that spot.  The pimple was like… … … fertilizer.  The freckle grew right on top of that pimple the very next day.  I am so annnnngry.  HUMPH.

#8 – Try to get into the mindset that I will need to have children someday.  Not for myself, but for people who likes to have irritating smaller versions of humans around them.  I don’t seem to have a biological clock.  It doesn’t tick.  It doesn’t tock.  I have no idea what is wrong with me.  I find children extremely irritating. 

My mother told me that once I have my own kids, I will feel that they are verrryyyyy cute even if they make a horrible scene.  She said that she used to feel that young children are disgusting until she had her own kids.  She said that you’ll always feel that your own children are the best.

So maybe what I have is a classic syndrome of…

My Kid will Pwned Yours



#9 – Stop playing an excessive amount of KAW (Kingdoms at War) on my iPhone4.  You have no idea how obsessed I am now.  I stared at that 3.5inch screen so much that now I think I am going blind in the right eye.  I think they should attach a warning sign before they allow iPhone users to download the application.



As I am typing out this blog post, I am still KAW’ing.  What is wrong with me.  Is there some kind of KAW Anonymous help group?  “Hi, I am Berry Mii & I am a KAW addict.”

This game is so addictive that my KAW buddy (omg I have a KAW buddy) said that he wants to employ people to join his clan & pay his employees in KAW gold.  And if they don’t KAW 24/7, then he will farm them until they reset.

Side Note:
Clan = can be created once you have 6 billion KAW gold
= hitting the same player more than 5 times within a 24-hour time frame
Reset = reset account & player has to start from scratch

#10 – Attempt to get some exercise.  Being born with a fabulous naturally twiggy body does not give me the right to eat junk food & lie down watch tv all day.  Don’t be lazy.

#11 – Travel to an exotic destination that is not within Singapore or Sentosa.

#12 – Attempt to DIY a facial cleanser, body cleanser/scrub & deodorant.

#13 – Try to control my mood swings during PMS.

I know it’s weird to do an odd number list & stop at #13, but oh well.  Prime numbers rule.

Now that I got the NYRs out of the way.

Let’s recollect a little on year 2010 & what I have learnt.  Also, not in any particular order.

#1 – My face can no longer tolerate anything skincare products that contains chemicals.  Otherwise I will break out terribly in cold sores, eczema, zits & weird rash.  And I know which skincare brand is the culprit but I shall not speak of its name here.

#2 – My face really really loves manuka honey & rhassoul clay.

#3 – Learnt that tea tree oil somehow breaks me out even more, if I apply it directly on my skin.  wattttttttttttttt why like tatttttt… =(

#4 – My hormones have gone imbalanced after I stopped taking contraceptive pills.  NO, it is not to prevent preganancy, but more for regulating my periods.  I decided to stop because the side effects make me feel so nauseous.  The doctor told me that the pills can prevent ovarian cancer, but… … the nauseous feeling is too much for me to bear.  Btw, side effects vary for different girls.  My complexion did improve a lot while I was taking the pills though.

#5 – Humans can be very very unappreciative & spiteful, especially old people who only care about themselves.  So I learnt to ignore them even if they are crying out in pain.  I don’t even want them to approach me.

… fed up with these ppl



#6 – My bf taught me that I have an O-zone.  LOL.  He said that normal human beings has a T-zone & a U-zone, but for me, I have an O-zone because my skin problems mainly exist around the mouth area.  (-_-)   I feel like slapping him.

Here’s a photo as illustration:

Blue = T-zone
Green = U-zone
Red = Berry Mii‘s O-zone, where everything bad happens


#7 – My sister needs to be bribed & her face is so cute that I want to pinch it to death.

#8 – My brother is becoming a loner, but still has that sarcastic sense of humor.  I love it.

#9 – I am born lazy.  What else is new.

#10 – My bf is probably the only guy on earth who can handle my PMS.

Ok, I need to go bom bom now.




My Lack of Hobbies

15 Nov

I am guessing that every single human being on this planet has a hobby or something that they really like doing / having.

Since their births, Gigi loves the internet & Buggy is addicted to his computer games.  Daddy is into IT & technology stuff.  Mummy is obsessed with fengshui which she surfs on the internet.  Dear God, my entire family members are geeks.

NO PAPA!  what will I do without my computer?!?!?!



As for my closest friends, they also have rock solid hobbies.  Mello loves reading fantasy books (not the erotic kind, you perverted minds) that involves magic & dragons & hobbits, kind of like Lord of The Rings sort of genre.  He would sometimes read self-help books & share his knowledge with me if it was interesting.

Hong is into body building.

My bf plays with balls (sounds so wrong, but right at the same time) – football, basketball, snooker/pool, etc.

Me?  I don’t think I ever had a hobby that I really enjoy doing.  And when I fill up application forms that needed me to state down my hobbies, my mind will draw a blank.  Is sleeping a hobby?  What about lazing in bed & not moving a muscle?  But still I will write down “swimming, surfing internet & watching TV“.

Do I really go swimming?  Not really, I just swim a few laps & lie down on the sunbed to tan.  But I don’t think it’s appropriate to put down Tanning as a hobby.  =\ 

err… well… at least it’s a double D cup…



Then as I grow older and more freckles appear on my face, I stopped baking myself under the sun & I changed Swimming to Reading.  I figured that if I still put down Swimming, people will wonder why my skin is so fair & I probably have to tell a white lie like “oh i do indoor swimming”.  Oh really, where?  (-_-)  So many questions to answer & the white lie grows bigger as I have to think of a place with an indoor swimming pool.  So troublesome.  Reading is more convenient.  If they ask me what I read, I will tell them any book by Richard Laymon, which will be true as I have read all his books.  Or I will steal some of that knowledge that Mello shared with me on previous occasions, which I don’t think is lying because I have also ‘read’ the self-help book, except that it is by listening to parts of it.

Surfing internet is not really a hobby of mine, unless you’re talking about Facebook / emails / etc.  I don’t even YouTube.  When I was in school, I hated research.  Each time we had to do a group project, researching materials will never be my job because I never have the patience to get it done.  I absolutely hate looking for things.  It ups my stress level a lot.

I found this on Google!  Trial & tested.
Print out & paste on your wall if necessary… very useful



Even in my daily life, I know exactly where every personal item is because I never misplace them so that I never have to go all over the house looking for my stuff.  When somebody borrows my stuff but does not put it back into its original spot & I have to look for it, my irritation & anger can reach rocket-high levels in a matter of 2 seconds.  It’s like… *realizes that my pen is not on my desk* (1 second)… where the hell is my pen? (2 seconds)…. WHO TOOK MY BLOODY PEN?!?!?! WTF @#$^*#$^!&$(%^!#@*(&*!!!!!!!!!!

*dagger stare*



That leaves Watching TV as the only one true hobby that I have in my life.  But it will not be a good idea to state it as my ONLY hobby, especially if it is a job application, right?  I figured that it will be more impressive to add in a sporty hobby (swimming) or an intellectual hobby (reading).

Oh and one thing that I have always been interested in, but never had a chance to do, is making my own stuff.  Like making my own hair clips with those Swarovski crystals or cute little candy ribbons & stuff.  Or a dress that I designed on my own.  Or my home-made deodorant using shea butter, baking powder, etc.  Or concocting my own body moisturizer using cocoa butter & my own special blend of essential oils.

I have created… … … a rose-scented booger!!!



For now, the only thing that I make on my own is my facial mask.  I use either raw honey / manuka honey or rhassoul clay / dead sea mud & blend it with hydrosols / essential oils & a little bit of serum or even some fresh lemon juice / cucumbers / tomatoes / etc.  It is super fun & I can make the facial mask according to what my skin needs at that moment.

When I have more time on my hands, I will attempt to make my own deodorant.

Oh god oh god my pits feel so violated!!!
p.s – is it just me or are the funniest photos always in sports???


In the meantime, I just found this new TV series called Haven.  It is like a combination of Fringe & Heroes.  It is pretty interesting.  I shall go veg out on the couch now.

And I think I shall file this post under About Berry Mii because it IS about me.

Who is Berry Mii?

9 Aug

Add me on Facebook!


I am Berry Mii.

For the longest time, I have been typing & revising & re-revising this page.

Finally, I am enlightened today.  The reason why I find it so hard to write about myself is because I am still discovering new things about me on a constant basis & I am changing frequently as I learn or experience stuff.

When I write about how childish I am, I know that is not true because I have a very mature side to me as well.  I love spicy food, but that is not always my favorite.  I am loud & crude, but I can be girlish too.  I have a strong personality, but I can have my weak moments.  I appear to be stubborn, but I am, in fact, a compromising person.

... feels like I am hard-selling myself now...

Therefore, it is very hard for me to write an “About Me” page.

So I decided not to talk about me & focus on what this blog is all about.

Berry Mii is not the 1st blog that I have created.  There is another blog of mine floating out there in the internet space.  It contains more personal events that reflect a Dr Jekyll / Mr Hyde personality.  One day, it got me wondering what will my future kids think of me when they read the original blog?  Would they be learning anything from it?  Some of the things that I blog about might be a little too over the top for them if they are still young & they might take it the wrong way.

Therefore, Berry Mii is to take my blog posts through my own life’s journey on a more informative level (not necessarily to be intellectual… haha) – whether it is discovering a remedy for eczema that I found over the internet, or fighting recurring cold sores, or buying a new product, engaging a new service, traveling to another country, web articles on current events, celebrity gossips, etc.

Of course, some parts of it will still be personal but I will try & keep this civil.  Try.

So that Berry Mii = safe for kids = PG rated

And when the children grow older & wiser, I might let them read that other blog of mine, give them a little pat on the back & tell them to read it with a touch of humor & pray that they will not judge me in any way.

I welcome any comments or emails or hate mails or if you can share any advise.  It is always good to know what you have learnt in your experiences as well.  Get a different perspective in life, a different view on how to get things done, or even a solution to a problem, or simply just to share a story.

I come in peace.  Always.  (dialogue extracted from the TV series – V)

p.s - this post will probably be re-re-revised again.
