Jazz with Sharizan

Jazz performance by Sharizan & band
24th July 2009
Alexis, Jln Ampang


Great music, great drinks, great jokes, great companies,
Great night.

I never knew who Sharizan was, but heard from lots of people that he's good. Well, yeah that particular night proved it. He was really good not only in his singing but also with his humour.
I still don't get it why did he called it the Ham Chim Peng gang and sang the funny song about ham chim peng.

Wanted to try the famous Alexis Tiramisu again but unfortunately was already sold out when we got there. Next time then! Love the drinks. Pimm's No 1 is my new favourite drink now. :D

wondermilk






what's the hype bout cupcakes nowadays?
ewww I hate cupcakes.
I had enough of them since young.
Mum used to bake lots of cakes and cupcakes and cookies and I'm afraid of them till now.
Haha... Don't get me wrong, they're awesome but it's just that I'd too much of them..
That I will not ever wanna buy any cupcakes or cookies from any stalls outside. What is more to actually eat them. :S

Okay, so wondermilk has gotten all the hoo haaas and I think it's a trend that people buy them as birthday gifts nowadays...
It seems to be an easy and save b'day gift. Pretty to look at, but not tasty in the mouth.


However, I must say that the interior of the place caught me off guard. I love the place at instant! The place has a touch of vintage and so random things placed at all corners. It gives a comfort feeling to your heart. I feel almost at home.
Most important of all, no waiters walking around asking you what you want or salesperson following you from the back.



I might come back again just to chill out, but not for the cupcakes. Sorryzz.. :D



p/s: I came here today to get a cuppie for someone on his birthday. A mini cupcake with pink topping plus a lil red Heart on top. sweet~~
Happy Birthday, someone. :D

Paintball!

Saturday, 4th July 2009, Sg Buloh Mudtrekker, Kuang.

This was the company's long awaited outdoor activity - PAINTBALL!
Everyone was joking about shooting the bosses but sadly, not many bosses / managers turned up. I think only 3 managers were spotted that day.


Journey to the Mudtrekker was not that long, but confusing. The map provided was indeed quite confusing and yes, lots of us were lost that day. Haha. However, someone did mentioned that I was a good navigator. :P



I thought the place would be muddy as what the name itself suggested, but it wasn't that bad though. It was an outdoor base and therefore, the settings were like the reality or as if u were having a war in the jungle. There were around 70-80 of us and we were separated into 4 teams. We played for like 7-8 games as each person get around 500 pellets!





My team was not that aggressive though and we were like hiding most of the time! The other team came ambushed on us and therefore, we were the losers. Hu HU... Didn't really get to take lots of macho pictures there as most of the photographers were in my team or the opposite team of mine.

Too bad :(

My team!
.



This was my first ever paintball game and was kinda scary at first but it was damn FUN.
Boy, paintball is addictive. I would really really wanna play again!

Fresh shot on my leg, can actually see the bruise d.. :( (right side)

*gonna do another proper post for this after i get some proper pictures from some ppl*.



the shot (day 1, day 2, day 3)

the middle area of the shot is so damn itchy now! Can't scratch it, coz it will hurt alot but at least, the bruise & the pain have subsided. :S
.

my dad asked me not to play this again. he said how can i play such a dangerous game.
dad: "they use pellets izit?"
me: "of coz la!"
dad: "i tot they use paintballs?"
me: "yala, inside the pellets got paint 1 lar"
dad: "ooh, dun play anymore la. chi sian!"
me: "BLEHHHH"
.

my mum asked me how come i didnt use Zambuk? err i dunno where can i get that.
mei asked me how am i suppose to wear skirts
dehao asked me not to played anymore too

colleagues said > " i was badly hurt, mine was the worst shot of all, damn the shooter/marker, disgusting, cant eat after looking at it, will u play again?, u have to 'chut' it, wanna go see doctor or not?, etc. .
.
.

Me? I say i will definitely wanna play again :P

NYX haul

Do you consider yourself lucky when you managed to grab stuffs when it's on sales, especially sales till like 50% and above?

I do feel a little lucky, but yeah I know that's a lil dumb. :S

But wth, I am so happy when I see the stuffs from the mail! *all smiles*

I got them all during the NYX Grand 50% SALES via CherryCulture.com, via Mandy dear. NYX is a foreign cosmetic brand here, but these are very good quality stuffs that people normally take them as dupes for MAC. There are just so cheap and nice and make you feel simply.... lucky & happy. :D

I think I managed to control myself though.. didn't really buy alot this time.
(Black Label lipstick for $3, Round lipstick $1 each, Pearl mania (pigments) $1 each, lipgloss $2)
total all together not more than RM100 i think.

quality wise, seriously, don't ever waste $$ on Loreal, Maybeline, Revlon, etc anymore. These are way cheaper and better and i really do think that these are on par with high-end products.

Lippies - Black Label (Nude), Round Lipstick (Milan), Round Lipstick (Femme)
Texture is soft,smooth, and color is very pigmented. Quite long lasting and moisturizing too.

Wearing Nude alone makes me looked a little pale, but after applying a coat of lipgloss on top, i kinda get the catwalk nude lips look. Haha.
As for Milan, this is not really the color that I wanted tho, this color looks a little different and darker than the swatch from the internet. This is like a dark mauve on me although other people described it as the perfect warm pink tone. Buying online sucks when this happens. Hmm..
Femme on my lips is like a flaming red with orange tone. Not too bad although I don't really wear red lipcolor. I'm still searching for the best Coral color lippie.

Milan on my lips. I actually just dabbed it on to stain my lips instead of applying it on so the color will not be too intense. I think the color is not so bad tho. :D

The Ultra Pearl Manias - Nude, Mink, Walnut, Charcoal, Turquoise, Lilac (I actually ordered more, but all were out of stock)

Other than the NYX stuffs, I also bought the highly raved Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP). No, this is under the same spree. Bought this from another friend in LYN who just got back from the US. Got it at a pretty decent price, RM70. Don't really think we have Urban Decays here.

so, what's this? this is the short intro of this product. hehe.

i tried this

You just gotta believe what the genie says. :P

L'egere BB Cream



I got these in a parcel one early morning in the office.
After the frustrations of dealing with the admin fella, this made my day. =)


It's my newly bought L'egere BB cream from Korea. The seller, she gave me some free candies too.
I picked L'egere over the many other brands of BB cream after the great reviews from some of the famous beauty bloggers, especially Fuz.
Have to get myself a new BB cream as the current one is running real low. I'm currently using the pink Skin79 BB cream and I didn't want to repurchase as I would like to try out other brands. It's good enough, but i'm still searching for a better one.



.
I tried L'egere this morning for my paintball activity. A good test tho. :P
I only applied my moisturizer + sunblock and followed by L'egere BB cream. No foundation/ loose powder/ anything on my face.
.



Verdict:
- Good oil control, better than Skin79. After all the sweating and sun, from early morning till 5pm, my skin appears dewy and not oily. *we're talking bout lots of sweating here*
- Good coverage, better than Skin79
- Texture wise, it's not as blendable as Skin79, but it's still fine for me
- Color is darker than Skin79 and I was shocked at first.. but it blends to the color of your skin well.
- No specific smell
- Packaging is not as attractive as Skin79, but it's practical enough.




.
.
I think it's just great!
it's simply my HG BB cream now.

cherries

my friend was shocked when I told her I am going to the gym today.

"How can you run while you're having your period? And, you just recovered from your flu. R u mad??"

haha.. i'm not mad.
i just feel so wanna run so much.
if i don't go, i feel something is wrong with me.
can't really run for so long, nose is still a little block after the flu.
but i think i did fine. managed to run 4km in around 30 mins i think. Seriously have to run more.

after gym, i was tempted by the cherries from the fruit stall nearby and i bought them back.
So, there goes my dinner.


haha, yeah rite!
i ordered McDs delivery after that :P
