HAPPY 17th BIRTHDAY!
You will be forever this little in our hearts. No matter how old you are!

Ok, lets move on with my post now.

The first 4 month of 2014 has been very eventful. From the first day to this current day. Since I have not been blogging religiously, I will write about the happenings in each month.

January
This is the month where it was the toughest for me. on 10 January 2014, yeh yeh was called Home by the Lord after 2 years of battling with Pancreatic Cancer.

As I was the only close family member in Singapore other than my grandmother, I had to take be responsible for many things. From his admission to the hospital to the arrangement of his funeral to settling his insurance claims, change of names, etc. I even broke down because it was too overwhelming. Thank God for my other relatives who were kind to offer help. As a foreigner in Singapore, I do not know what were the procedures especially for the funeral. Grandma was emotionally unstable for a few awhile, but she was strong. We even managed to go back to Kuantan for Chinese New Year though she had to keep in mind of the all the pantang. 

February
Flew over to Perth for my graduation! Brought my family, grandma, grandaunt and Josh along. But sadly, mom couldn’t join us as she was busy at her kindergarten and also she’s afraid to fly.

I was the only one among my friends from Singapore who flew down to Perth for the graduation. Too kiasu and in desperation to get my allowance quick. Haha. Well, I saw a few familiar faces though but I’m not close to them. So just smile, hi and bye.

March
My birthday month! Turned 26 this year and I can’t imagine I’ll be 30 in just 4 years time.

and I finally own a Wacom tablet! Thanks a lot dear, really love it TTM! But I haven’t use it yet. Heh…

And, oh. I enrolled myself in another course. This time, a language course. I sucks in language. Despite going to class twice a week, I still cannot cope and also can’t speak! Forgive me… up to date, it’s only my 2nd month learning a whole new language!

I also had my Singapore PR approved! What a joy (and heartache knowing my salary will be lesser than before because of the CPF deduction)  as now I have more freedom to do more things over here in Singapore (eg. change job. HAHAHAH)

April
The busiest month yet. Been offered quite a lot of make up and face painting jobs! I would say I have earned quite a lot of side income this month. And work has been very busy too.. i would say I am financially blessed this month.

Sometimes I wish there are people who will help me take pictures during my make up jobs. It’s such a shame that I am not able to take much pictures during the makeover and the the outcome as most of the time there ain’t much time for me to do so.

Face painting has been quite fun too. But for a person who doesn’t draw, it can be quite challenging. There are technique and doesn’t really require one to know drawing though. As long as you master the stroking techniques,  you will be able to come out with some decent designs.

Somehow I like this picture although my artwork on their faces are gone from the smudging and their sweat.

Since I have not posted any pictures on my face painting gigs, I shall post the past gigs here too.

Most of the time, I won’t have time to take pictures during the gigs, hence the limited pictures. Sometimes, the whole paint smudges and the doesn’t look so nice anymore. It’s been about 6 months since I started face painting! I think it’s fun but still need to brush up on my skills.

Need to be quick (3-5 mins/design!) and neat and look pretty too. There are times I made kids look like a tribal people instead of a fairy. lol. I have the picture but for now, I shall not post it up. Too malu-fying.

That’s all for now! Til next time!

Welcoming Myself Back

Yes, forgive me once again for I have not blogged for almost 3 month. After much people asking me to update my blog, here I am. Not doing my assignments, but blog!

So yes, assignments. For some of you readers who don’t know, I am now back to school. Yes, back to school again! This time pursuing my nursing education in Advance Diploma in Operating Theater Nursing. Just started this course 3 weeks ago and will last for 9 months.

So far, the modules that I’m struggling with is research and psychosocial. Sigh. No matter what, I still need to go through!

Anyway, just some pictures of what you guys missed the past few months of my disappearance!

Ok, so I bought a new camera in March. After so long, I finally own my first DSLR. =D
Bought a Nikon D7000! well, there goes my money for the month. To make me feel better, I bought this as my birthday gift. Haha.

So the picture below was my first attempt.

This my my friend, Mun Theng. =)

The 2nd week of March was a blast. Company had an annual dinner and it was a privilege to attend because I heard the last annual dinner was many many many years ago!

And of course the next one is my birthday celebration. Was disappointed when my parents told me they were unable to go down to KL to celebrate my birthday. I travelled from Singapore to KL for the weekend for my birthday.

Little did I know, I was surprised to see my parents and lil sister! Thanks to my dearest and sister for the planning. Really made my day even more special. Family brings much happiness.

Next was Danee’s birthday that fell on April Fool’s. We celebrated a day earlier at clubs. Well, the night did not end too well when our dear Fang Fang fainted all of a sudden, tried to save her from any injury but too late, a chair fell on her forehead and left a deep cut!

Photobucket
She was admitted for a night, just for observation and some stitches by plastic surgeon. She’s is fine, just some vasovagal syncope.

I have been going back to KL very often within these few months. The boyfie is there and since I have some time, I would just travel down since it is hard for him to come to Singapore as the exchange rate is so high. He told me this on my birthday, “If I were to go to Singapore to celebrate your birthday, I could not give you as much as I could give like now.” He won’t be able to spend on food and gift as much as in KL.

Singapore why you so expensive? Malaysia, why you so POOR?!

So yea, I went back during one of the weekend in April. And after I arrived, the boyfie asked me to accompany him to an event. Little did I know, the event is the JW Black Circuit Party, where it’s only by invitation! Fuyoh, feel so atas for a while.

Photobucket
so as usual, his blogger friends. And me, sesat lah.

Photobucket
my <3

The event was hot, amazing and wow. Kinda enjoyed myself seeing celebrities, big shots, sexy woman, ugly guys, hot guys, drunkards and inhale cigarette smoke for 3 hours. Aih.

So after enjoying myself, it’s time to go back to school.
School was already tough in the first week. Praying that I can cope til next year!
Classmates are nice and friendly.

Photobucket
We celebrated Charity’s birthday. My birthday was in March. Even if I wait til next year, I cannot celebrate liao in class. I kinda miss classroom birthday celebration actually. LOL.

Photobucket
The class of 18 students only.

And again, I have mentioned just now that I go back to KL often. Just last week, I travelled again to KL during Easter weekend. One of the reason is to visit CHCKL. =)

The boyfie and I was deciding on what to have for dinner on my first night in KL. Then I suggested Souled Out as it was ages ago since we last ate there!

Photobucket
Due to my braces, I was and is still unable to eat some food. So Carbonara it is. Yummy!

And of course, missing chee cheong fun! The boyfie brought me to have some chee cheong fun at his neighbourhood.

Photobucket

Food was so so, but I enjoyed the company.

Photobucket
Another attempt of snapping good picture. I kinda like this picture. Hehe

And oh, how many of you love Pooh bear? I love pooh bear to the max!

And I bought this cute luggage bag!

Photobucket
Aww, how can you not love it? It’s pricey though but I don’t care! haha.
My friend told me it cost $200 in Singapore! I bought this for about $110 only.

And just today, I went to meet up with my friends to catch up with them. Miss all the girl talks and gossips!

Geraldine and I

And I have a little message here…

Dear Geraldine…

Photobucket
Congratulations and all the best to you both! =)

Something I’ve Never Done Before

Photobucket

Today is my sister’s birthday. Was back in KL yesterday and had dinner with the whole family. James Ong gave her a bottle of wine as her birthday gift when we went over to his restaurant for dinner. Wanted to get her a gift but it is still not available in Malaysia yet so gotta come back to Singapore to buy.

In the mean time while waiting for your gift, I have done something for you, PB Tan…

Yah,

I have never done this before. I never like video-ing myself.
But because it is my sister’s 21st birthday, I have to be muka tebal a bit lah.

Happy Birthday PB!
