Not only am I crazy about stuff to wear, and decor with; I'm a cosmetic, skincare, and beauty freak, too! Back in KL I used to go to Strip (http://thestar.com.my/lifestyle/story.asp?file=/2006/9/5/lifeliving/20060904181513&sec=lifeliving) religiously to wax all the unsightly strays. I blame my dad's genes for the hairiness I inheritated - thanks non-present father in Bangi! Anyhoo, with waxing, there's bound to be ingrown hairs. To get rid of those pesky itches, I used to use Strip's X cream, which worked wonders. To think I was going to find it here in the US was an high expectation from my end, as I never found it or anything equally as good. Until I found Tend Skin liquid. I used some of my boyfriend's mother's stash when I was over for X'mas, (shhh!) and it worked even though I used it only once. So, there you go yet another item to add on to my endless shopping list. Phew!
Since my lease for the apartment will soon be over in June, I have to start looking for more furniture, no? Don't you love bean bags, how they just follow the shape of your bottom as your crash down their cushy soft-ness? I was think about getting a Sumo bean bag, it's like a bean bag with frills! Especially the Omni :D
I discovered online shopping early 2009, and since then I can't stop! It's like giving yourself a present every once in a while (which is once a week in my vocab). I'm trying to stagger the purchases, and sometimes just sometimes I tend to slip and go on a shopping spree. Everywhere I look I see something that I want, and it's a plus that the stuff that I'm attracted to give to a charitable cause, which gives you more reason to just buy, buy, buy! Afterall, it isn't all in vain? Well, I must admit that some are for sheer pleasure of owning something new and different, or just plain pretty :) Like these links that I came across. God (Allah) please give me the strength! It makes me wanna bling up my phone, but the thing is I don't have a flossy phone like an iPhone, or a Blackberry. So, that gets me thinking, seeing that I'm on a roll on everything new in 2010; that a new phone is in the near future, perhaps? hehehe...
Back in 2001/02 or somewhere around there, I remember my close girlfriend N had given me the most simplest yet wisest advice that I needed to hear at that moment. I was in, I think the most darkest age in my life. I was caught up in the whole rave scene and had a very unhealthy lifestyle of recreational drugs, alcohol, sleepless nights and mal-nourished days. By that time the side effects had been full blown and I was feeling bouts of paranoia, insecurity, and depression. I confided in N at a once popular club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia called Movement, of all the negativity that I had been feeling for what I felt was the longest time, was simply: "Just put it in a bubble and blow it away." And... I did, something so simple helped me heal from what I once thought could never be cured. The cliche is true: it's all in the mind. Even though some may say that it may be a bit too late to start a blog now, but frankly, I don't really care, Y can't I?
