Me & My Youthful Looks (LOL)

16 Mar

It’s true.  Everyone says that I look like I’m in my mid 20s.  LOL

Even when I buy cigarettes for my friend at 7-11, the cashier will ask to check my ID.  Or when I go to the theatre to watch a R21 movie, the ticketing staff will ask for my ID.  And there was this one time when this auntie came over to chat with me, asking me about my mother, and asking me about this & that… then I was like “who the hell is this auntie”… and after a few minutes later, she realized her mistake & admitted that she thought I was my sister (who was 10 years younger than me ok).  LOL i know very thick skin, but it’s true.

I guess looking youthful has its perks.  Like people will fuss around me because they think I’m a kid & I can’t look after myself.  And for the obvious reason that I don’t look like an old hag.

However, I seem to realize that youthful looks can be very frustrating as well.

It is precisely that people think you are a kid, so they don’t respect you that much… or they try & bully you to do their stuff… or they think that  you are inexperienced so they can try & make you change your procedures to suit them even if it means inconveniencing yourself… or they talk to you with a lesser amount of respect.




ok, I think you can guess by now that I had experienced some bad incidents at work.

and it’s ALL MY FAULT!!!  Because I left a good management job for a new job that downgraded myself in position (but slightly higher in salary).  So now I don’t get the respect that I should deserve for my skills & knowledge.  =(   Serve me right.  Somewhere out there, I can hear my ex-boss saying, ‘I TOLD YOU SO”.

But… I just wanted to indulge in some personal time & not spend all my life at work.  But then again, I am still spending A LOT of time at my new workplace because the system is so terrible & so messy that I have to work OT to clear up all the crap.


hahahaha… I so regret leaving my 1st serious job for a supposedly relaxing new job (but it now seems like I got conned into the job).  sigh… i hate interviewers who misrepresent the job scope & working environment during my interviews.  I feel cheated.

Life is unfair.  So kill yourself or get over it.

Side Note (and very out of point):  Calling out to Sheryl, your BSY soap is still with me!  I am already bringing in the 7th batch of soaps for new buyers. LOL.  You already paid for this, so I want to hand it over to you!  I have been sms’ing you but I didn’t get any reply.  Did you change your hp number????  If you see this message, please email me at to arrange a date & time & place to collect it.  hahaha…



Sorry for the Spiderwebs

8 Mar

It has been a while since I last blogged.

I am a terrible terrible person.

Just started on my new sucky job. I have no idea what I have gotten myself into until the 1st day at work.

The pay is higher than my previous job, but dunno why the job scope is lower level. Which means that I am being paid higher to do an assistant’s job when I was previously paid lower but performing at an executive/manager level. Makes sense?

Most of you will be saying, “That is good. You are paid more for lesser responsibilities.”


You are so wrong.

Doing a lower level job is unsatisfying & unrewarding. My brain is asking me for more challenging work. And of course, an actual assistant to delegate work to.

*wails in pain like a banshee who just stepped in fresh cow dung*

So for now, I’m afraid I cannot devote time in blogging. But I have a feeling that very soon, I will be able to blog A LOT. hehehe…

Oh btw, if you are still looking to purchase the BSY soap, please email directly to me at

Also, I have Chagrin Valley soaps going at a flat rate of SGD$22 per piece (postage not included yet) if you are interested. Email me too.

I’ll be back to update my blog soon!

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!



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???????



(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?



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


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”.


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”.


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





I am having PMS.

In recent  months, I’m starting to having severe  mood swings.

I want to killllllllllllllllllllllllllll someone now!


Hope you guys had fun during the long weekend!

The long weekend made me feel extra lazy at work though.  =\



A Whole Bunch of Skin/Hair Rediscovery

26 Jan

No blog post done for the past 2 weeks.  hahaha…  again, the same excuse – I have been busy.  With both work & KAW.

For this Chinese New Year, I am excited!  Nothing to do with CNY though.  I hardly celebrate CNY anyway.

I am excited due to a rediscovery of my problematic sensitive-prone skin.  I’m still using the BSY soap as a cleanser, though I have to learnt to rotate it with the 100% Pure cleanser which I bought during my visit to the seller’s place.  Why do I have to rotate?  It is for the following reasons:

1)  The question would be… if I don’t rotate with the 100% Pure cleanser, then who is going to finish up that cleanser for me?  LOL.  I can’t just let the 100% Pure cleanser sit in my cupboard.  It just looks… … lonely.  Also, I would want to use that up before it goes rancid.

2)  A reader who has dry & pimply skin told me that she rotates the BSY soap with her own cleanser.  Her feedback was that the BSY soap made her skin drier.  So by rotating, her skin was not that dry & her pimples started to clear up.  What she did was to use her own cleanser in the morning, then the BSY soap in the night.  Thus, I decided to copy her method.  LOL.

3)  Because of Points 1 & 2 above, I accidentally also found out that my skin likes the rotating method.

Another thing is that I have to update my review on the GoW products (which I had given a review previously HERE), specifically the hydrating mists & the vinegar toner.

I had recently switched it up a bit with the following routine:

1)  After cleansing face, spritz with Avene Thermal Water.

2)  Allow it to air dry just a little bit, then spritz with the Clarifying Toner.

3)  Allow it to air dry just a little bit again, then spritz with the hydrating mist (currently I’m using the honey one).

4)  Allow it to air dry just a little bit again, then spritz again with Avene Thermal Water.

5)  Allow it to air dry completely.  Put nothing else after that or just 1 drop of Rosehip Oil.


I know it sounds like a lot of spritzing & air drying, but if you stand around a ceiling face, I assure you that it takes no more than 3 mins.

My skin seems to love it for now.  It’s like… nicely hydrated, so my face does not feel ‘oily’ or ‘sticky’ or ‘blocked’.

I’m just going to try this for some time & see if my skin continues to relish it.

I dunno if all of you are the same, but for me, when I use a product over a period of time, my skin will at first seem to like it, but after awhile, it doesn’t seem to work anymore.  I read from the GoW website that this is a normal thing because your skin may become ‘complacent’ over time.  So what you can do is to switch your products or change your skincare routine a bit.

hmmmm… worth a thought.

I ordered a bottle of Certified Organic Tea Tree Oil from Milagro Trading recently.

I dropped a few drops into a bowl of hot water & use that to steam my face with.

Then when I was going thru some hormonal changes during that…. ‘MONTHLY’ thing, my skin broke out with a few zits around the face.  So I tried to dot a little TTO on the spots with a carrier oil like jojoba, but… … oh. my. god.

It was not good.  Not good at all.  In fact, it was close to being horrifying.  It made my zits even ANGRIER and pus-sier (if there’s such a word, which means more pus LOL!!!).

The surrounding skin around that zit had also broke out with 1 cystic acne.  =\

And I thought TTO was supposed to be like the mother of all zit-busters.  I’ve read so many reviews how great TTO is for their acne & whatever spotty skin they have, but it didn’t work for me at all.

I think I’m just going to just stick to using TTO in a steaming session & not to be applied directly on my skin.

Not sure if it’s due to the quality of the TTO or if my skin hates TTO.

I will probably finish up this current bottle, then get the TTO from another source to test it out again.

God bless my face.

Orh mi tuo fuo.

Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse for Hair.

I tried that the past month.  Once a week.  I chose Friday because I am worried that the ACV stench will remain in my hair & my colleagues might think that I don’t like to take showers.

I have to say that my favorite shampoo so far is still the Asience Nature Smooth Shampoo which I had posted a review HERE.  It is not a natural shampoo, but my hair likes this.  I haven’t had any luck finding a natural shampoo that pleases my hair & scalp yet.

I’ve tried Aubrey Organics GPB Glycogen Protein Balancing Shampoo, Phyto shampoo for oily scalp & the shampoo bars from Chagrin Valley which I have reviewed HERE.  None of them gives me the results like the Asience one.  =(

So, using the ACV rinse would help to get rid of any chemical build up & balance out the pH levels of my hair/scalp.

I use 1 part ACV to 5 parts water & leave the mixture in my hair without rinsing it off.  Then I wrap my hair up in a towel till it is semi-dry.  After that, I let it air dry.

I am a big fan of air dry.


Please share your views & opinions!!!  I desperately need help in this area.

How would you like to celebrate your wedding????

Option 1:  Register your marriage (ROM), take wedding photos, then go for a 2 weeks overseas honeymoon.  Forget about the wedding dinner & all those traditional formalities.

Option 2:  ROM, take wedding photos, do the whole shebang with the wedding dinner & the traditional tea ceremony.  Go on a short overseas honeymoon (not 2 weeks, or maybe 2 weeks if you can still afford it after spending a bomb on the wedding dinner).

Option 3:  Friggin just ROM & get on with your goddamn life.

Option 4:  Get pregnant, ROM & get on with your miserable goddamn life.

Important Note – I am JUST KIDDING on Option 3 & 4.  I realized that people always think I am being serious when I am telling a joke.  *poker face*

Ok, so between Option 1 & 2, which would you pick?


Gong Xi Fa Cai.

And may all of those who read my blog win BIG MONEY in 4D / Toto / CNY gambling!


Cruella De Vil & her Peanut Shells

13 Jan

I am feeling disturbed by a situation that happened a few days ago.

I feel like I have to blog it out & get it off my chest or something bad is going to happen.

In order to protect the identities of the persons involved, all names or events have been modified.

Jennifer Aniston went out to meet her friend, Johnny Depp.  They had a really great time during the day.  Later in the evening, they had to meet this other friend called… Cruella De Vil.

“i am as mean as it gets.  deal with it, sucka”



Now, Cruella has an inborn mean streak & can spew out venom words that cut you like a carving knife.  So why does Jennifer Aniston & Johnny Depp still want to be her friend?  Well, let’s just say they don’t have a choice.

Cruella can be nice & friendly at times.  But she likes to pick on Jennifer Aniston a lot by saying sarcastic things to her.  And she bullies Johnny Depp by ordering him around to do her errands even when he is tired & hungry.

But this day is a special day for all 3 of them.


Because something weird is about to happen.  It will be epic.

On this particular day, there was a house gathering at Cruella’s mansion.  And she invited some friends over.

Cruella de Vil was watching TV while deshelling & munching on some peanuts.  She threw all the peanut shells into a tiny plastic bag which was placed beside her.  How considerate, right?  Never anyhow throw the shells around the house.  But then again, it is her own house so she wouldn’t dirty it.

Then Jennifer & Johnny arrived.

The second they opened the house door, Cruella shouted, “EH JOHNNY… HELP ME TO THROW RUBBISH!!!!

Then she immediately grabbed the tiny plastic bag of peanut shells & she literally… *FLING*… it at Jennifer & Johnny.

The amazing part was… … she did not even BOTHER to turn around while flinging the bag.  She just tossed the bag over her shoulders while she continued staring at the TV.  Eyes GLUED to TV as she threw the rubbish over her shoulders, like this photo below:

Bah… who cares where the rubbish lands…




I thought only brides will do the flower tossing over their shoulders.

See which lucky lady catches the bouquet!  Weeeee!!! =D



Didn’t know this kind of tossing applies to garbage as well.

=\     <— disapproving look

Cruella did not give a damn where the bag landed.  She just tossed it over her shoulders & expected Johnny to pick it up from the floor & throw it away for her.

And since Jennifer & Johnny was caught off-guard by that sudden flinging, the bag of garbage hit Johnny’s leg & dropped on the ground.

Both stared at the bag of garbage for a split second.

Both felt like they were being treated worse than maids.  It was downright disrespectful.

Everyone else who was in the house at that time, just stood one corner & watched the commotion.  Must be either too shocked to react or they pretended that they did not see such a horrifying act.

Jennifer saw that Johnny blinked in hesitation & she knew that he must be feeling very degraded by Cruella’s actions.  So she decided to walk towards the bag of peanut shells, pick it up for him & throw it away.

Then suddenly, something snapped in Johnny & he scolded Cruella on her actions.  GO JOHNNY!  YOU DA MAN!



First of all, WHY PIN-POINT AT JENNIFER ANISTON??????  It was Johnny Depp who scolded her, right?!

I’ll tell you why.  Because usually Johnny would listen to her & he is quite afraid to get her angry.  So in Cruella’s pea-brain, she assumed that the only reason why Johnny would raise his voice at her is because of Jennifer.  That is why she directed her anger at poor Jennifer.

Those words were dripping with sarcasm.  She must be feeling very pissed that Johnny finally became a man & stood up for something right.  Cruella must be thinking that she is losing a servant who can serve her hand & foot each time she rings the butler’s bell.

*ting ting*
get me a glass of red wine, butler



Her words carried that tone & pitch (high & sharp) that made the apology so not sincere.  Might as well don’t apologize & just admit that you don’t give a damn about respecting human beings because you feel that you are so high & mighty & everyone else are just here for you to boss around.

=\  <– disapproving look again

That was the ultimate.

She has said mean things before.  She has done spiteful things before.

But this incident really takes the whole cake.  It is, by far, the rudest thing I have ever seen her done.

I am still dazed by her actions.  What in the world is that supposed to mean?  How can anyone do such a disrespectful thing.

If you reflect upon Cruella’s actions & reach deep into her soul, the only reason why she would do a thing like that is because she really bu ba ni fang zai yen li (direct translation: never put your presence in her eyes).  She really ba ni cai dao di di (direct translation: step you low low).

Cruella made it very clear with her actions.  The whole world can see it crystal clear now – She really doesn’t care what you think or how you feel or who you are.  The only important person in this world…. is her.

Ha HA!  I am faaabulous faabulous faaaaabulous!


Which interprets as… … the highest form of selfishness.

p.s – i must say that my respect for Johnny Depp has increased ever since I saw him standing up for himself.  He finally did something right for himself.  Oh I’m so proud of him.

p.p.s – I am trying my hardest to be nice & polite & respectful to Cruella, but she seems to be making it really difficult for me.  Sometimes, she makes me just want to go hide one corner & be a loner.  LOL.  I’m afraid that she will bully me & I will have to resist the urge to argue with her.

Please note that I am not against doing things for people.  I do not mind helping people I love & care about.  But sometimes, people just want to take advantage.  The more you treat them nice, the worse they treat you.  Where’s the logic in all of these.

So the only way to correct this kind of behavior will be… … … to ignore them.  I don’t mean that we have to be hostile towards them.  But just… … ignore them.  If they talk to you, you can still talk to them nicely.  But if they ask for help or start bossing you around again, then just decline & give some kind of excuse.

Don’t even think about offering your extra services, like if they ask you to get a glass of water, you don’t need to go the whole extra mile by asking “hot or cold?  you want to put ice or not?  how many cubes of ice?“… … (-_-) … … that will confirm, chop & guarantee make you are a target for future bullying/abuse by these people.


Get that into your brain.

Ok, but just to be fair, a minority of them do learn to appreciate.  But that is after they suffer a big lesson or they suddenly grow a conscience.  Also, I learnt that the older they are, the harder it is for them to learn to appreciate.

For me, I learnt the meaning of appreciation at a really really young age.  Unfortunately, that also meant that I found out all about selfish people when I was a teenager.  I lead a sad sad life.  Just kidding.  It’s not that sad.

Is human nature really such a terrible thing?

Take some time off & self-reflect on yourselves today.  Think about all the times where you have ill-treated someone.  Then imagine that you are the one who are being ill-treated in that same way.  How would you feel.

Before you do anything evil to another person, always put yourself in their shoes first.

Unless… … you are born evil & you don’t find anything wrong with the things you do & you don’t want to self-reflect because it’s a waste of time, then… … all I can say is… …

Karma is watching you.

*points points to something behind you*… *runs away*…

… I know what you did last weekend…

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.
