Bachelor of Info Technology at PSB Academy!

at 1:30:00 am 0 comments
Remember when we were really young, how all our ambitions revolve around being teachers, astronauts, policemen, firefighter etc..? (Well the 90s kids at least)
When I was young, I wanted to be a teacher but as I grew up I got pulled into the world of art & design which gradually made me the designer I am today, but there are still so many career paths I dream to be in:

If you guys have been following my instagram, time to time you'll see me posting photos of my/my friend's nails and yess they are all done by yours truly (: I think it's really therapeutic and I love making nails pretty!

More often than not, before you can embark on your dream career path, you'd need some sort of qualification - be it a diploma or degree.
Personally, I feel that in order to survive in Singapore, it would be wise to get a degree. 
Not just any other degree, but a degree in something you enjoy doing. No point in getting a degree in commerce when your interest and strength is in design just because your parents want you to take up something business, you'll only end up giving up halfway and wasting your time.

I know alot of Singaporeans now own a degree and the competition would be really tough so what sets you apart from the rest will depend on your application of skills, how well you handle people/workload and not forgetting your personality.

And one place to kickstart your exciting future plans would be..
PSB Academy with 2 campuses - @Delta / @Shenton!!
"For 50 years, PSB Academy has been successfully providing students with diverse opportunities to be keen learners.

Happy Daddy's Day!

at 10:00:00 am 0 comments


This video makes my heart smile and I remember that whenever I'm in trouble, my dad will always be the first one I call because he's like a superhero who'd fly down from wherever he is like that time when I was having severe food poisoning at 4am in the morning and bawling helplessly, he was the one who answered to my calls while I was desperately finding someone to talk to.
My dad has a default grumpy face 24/7 and it's really rare to see him smile but that's probably because I hardly spend time with him now that I'm all grown up with different commitments and responsibilities. I miss the times when every sunday we'd go out for breakfast and maybe a trip to ikea just to walk around or to eunos to look at cars. Now that he's getting older day by day, he rarely wants to go out on weekends anymore and it's actually kinda heartbreaking and annoying to see him sleep and sleep and waking up grumpy. The only time I spend with him now is when he drives me out because our working hours are total opposites.
Daddy, I know you're really strict on me and you want me to have a good future consisting of a stable career and someone worthy enough who can replace you to take care of me till I'm old while it's time for me to take care of you. Even though I may act like I'm not listening when you nag I actually take your words to heart and thankyou for always protecting and defending me when other people say hurtful stuffs about/to me...

 HAPPY DADDY'S DAY DADDY!
Thankyou for everything you've did for me and I'm eternally grateful.

REVIEW: Collection Cosmetics Bright & Glow Brightening Compact Foundation + Cream Puff Lip Cream

at 2:00:00 pm 0 comments
Collection Cosmetics finally arrived in Singapore!
In case you haven't heard of this brand, they are a UK based drugstore brand founded in 1987 and their cosmetics are made for the FUN, FAB and FEARLESS women of today.
The products start at S$9.90 and to me that's really affordable compared to other brands with similar quality.
I happened to walk past one of their pop up stores at Cineleisure and left with the Bright&Glow Brightening Compact foundation and the cream puff lip cream as I was looking for something more subtle than my usual bright lip colors for everyday use.
Bright & Glow Brightening Compact Foundation in 2 Ivory - S$18.90

First thoughts when I saw the compact case was "Omg it looks cute!" and proceeds to try it on.
I used to own a Majolica Majorca compact but I dropped it so many times the foundation cracked till I couldn't fix it at all so I gave up on compacts. But since my skin is getting clearer and I don't want to suffocate my skin with too much make up (or maybe I'm just really lazy to put on make up on most days) I got the Bright & Glow compact to lightly brush on/touch up on the go.
The sponge included compliments the compact foundation really well because it glides on so smoothly!
It also gives my face a matte look as it can soak up excess sebum if you have really oily skin.
I have the foundation applied in all my photos in this post and you can see how smooth it is on my skin and that's even after sweating because standing in front of my ring light is really hot. LOL

Rating: 9/10

So moving on to the cream puff lip cream!
Cream Puff Moisturizing Lip Cream 5ml in Cotton Candy - S$13.90

The name of the lipcream is soooo cute!
Cream puff. I love cream puffs. I got the lip cream in Cotton Candy because it looks natural and really feminine which is suitable for everyday use.
The color you see in the bottle is the exact color you're gonna get on your lips and they come in 3 other colors!
IMHO, they should have more shades because I'm quite in love with this lip cream.
It glides on really smoothly and not only that, IT SMELLS GREAT. Anything that smells great is a plus point for me. Not only that it is also pretty moisturizing though it did dry my lips a little but I think I just have really dry lips 24/7. It gives a matte finish (another plus point) and is easily buildable.

Does it transfer/come off easily?

To answer that I tried drinking from my glass cup (and no that's oolong tea not hoegaarden) and to my surprise the color stayed on and very minimal of the color transferred to the cup.
So if you're going on a date you don't have to worry about color stains on cups. Or am I the only one who finds it embarrassing?

Rating: 8/10

Collection Cosmetics can be found in most Watsons stores islandwide as well as BHG outlets and the pop up store I went to was at Orchard Cineleisure.

RECIPE: Overrated Red Velvet Waffles

at 7:00:00 pm 0 comments


My instagram feed has recently been SPAMMED with photos of red velvet waffles from this particular cafe and in my mind I can't help but think, 'Guys it's just normal red velvet batter, need you guys make such a huge wooha about it?!?!?! I mean I can make it too, you can make it too.'
The main reason why I decided to make red velvet waffles was because my dear shirleen wanted to go to that cafe for the red velvet waffles pretty badly but everyone was either busy or yada yada and it was kinda far from where we reside so I thought OK we are so making our own red velvet waffles.

Red Velvet Waffles
(makes about 15 (freaking 15) waffle sqaures)

  • 1 packet of Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of full cream milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup vegetable/olive oil
 Preheat waffle maker
 Dump everything into a huge bowl and whisk them all up
 Butter the waffle iron or use a cooking spray
 Put 2 tablespoons of the batter for each square and spread it out
 Time 5-7mins for the waffles to be done
 Serve with ice cream, cream cheese icing and maple syrup!!!!


Really easy recipe which feeds 7 people with 1 extra piece for myself!
If you're a waffle lover you can invest in a waffle maker which in my opinion is a really good investment and trust me it's really therapeutic as well LOL. One machine costs from S$30 onwards and I got mine online so it was really cheap and no it didn't explode nor burn my house down.
Oh and in case you're wondering where I got the plate from, it's from daiso. #Budget
Maybe I'm just being a hater. But I'd prefer to think of it as eating smart.
HAHAHH.



Thankyou boyfiee for helping out with the waffles! ♥
