Found this really interesting post on kisses today. Never occurred to me to have that many sorts of emotions brought across with the single touch of lips. Intriguing. Given the sort of GIFs are one of my very favorites on Tumblr, with the added touch of including my all time favorite movie "The Notebook", I felt compelled to share.

 The Innocent

The Crazy Moment

The Midnight Call

The Legendary Kiss

The Drama

Young & So-in-love

The Surprise Kiss

Now or Never

The Heartstopping

The Playful Kiss

... & my all time favorite.

"A kiss that is never tasted,
is forever and ever wasted."

Good things that happened over the weekend:

  • Had a rest day on Friday night after exercising consecutively for the past two weeks. Devoured my favorite Tangy Tomato at Soup Spoon.
  • Woke up naturally early on Saturday morning and decided to work out double sessions + 10 minute Blogilates moves. Working back on 30 Day Shred level 2 was a killer and is still the most kick ass among the three IMO, but the sweating felt really good.
  • Treated the fam bam to dim sum at Swee Choon. Totally busted the calories count, but luckily I did extra the workout for the day. 
  • After Sunday's workout, I'm officially left with four days to the end of 30 Day Shred. Can't believe I've actually managed to pull through, but yay! -pat on the back- Next up, aiming to conquer Ripped In 30.
  • One of my best friends got engaged! Happy happy day for her, and I wish her all the best on her next journey to come.
  • Intended for brunch at D.O.C on Sunday, but due to time miscalculations totally missed out on the brunch menu. Had to settle for Banana Rum Waffles instead, which were really good too. A sweet tinge of cinnamon just does it. Definitely gonna be back soon to try their signature Sundried Tomato & Herb Waffles with bacon and scrambled eggs. (I feel hungry already)

Time for a new post just cause I'm slowly dozing off at work (oops) on a lazy Friday afternoon. Hey don't judge, no one works properly when on weekend mode.

Let's talk music here. Lately there's been so much hype and talk over dear Miley's recent 'controversies'. The tongue gestures are a bit much, I agree. On the other hand, her body is rockin' and I kind of don't blame her for wanting to flaunt it. Come to 'Wrecking Ball', so much has been said. It didn't hit me straight when it first leaked, but I gotta admit the song's been rubbing on me recently. Honestly I'm kinda really liking it. IDK really, but nakedness aside, there's so much emotion showing through here. And I've always been a sucker for such irony. It's like you can hear the pain in her voice, which voices the question of perhaps what's she gone through to have come to this point today. So much change. Such need to prove. Baring it all, lyrically and literally. A long-invested relationship comes to an end, there are bound to be self-destruct emotions. A display of strength even though you're really hurting deep down inside. Powerful words that tell so much. Sounds all too familiar. I'm starting to understand the whole transformation drama bit, and frankly speaking, I'm not blaming her for acting so. A part and parcel of life maybe, but nonetheless shouldn't have anyone go through. Hear hear, Miley. Hear hear.

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was break me
Yeah you, you wreck me

Hello hello. Amidst the series of serious rambles in the past week, I am back with some normal shizz on the roll. I feel like I hardly do these posts due to the lack of activities going on which in such case the blog hardly makes sense. But I try. Bear with me guys, December's hitting up pretty soon, so I'll try my very best to capture the best moments in Taiwan just for visual appetite. Let's hope I won't be too busy stuffing my face silly to do so.


Took me ages to get this baby. And believe me, spreeing for huge candles still cost a bomb even after discounts. Shipping was pretty atrocious, but I've heard about B&B candles and always wanted to try. I don't know when I got started on all these scented stuff but I guess I'm pretty hooked. Almost every night it's a routine to pop some essential oils or light a scented candle before bed. Mmm yum. I love a great smell (which also explains my fascination with shitloads of perfume fragrances). But seriously, waiting for shipment is a bitch. Next time I guess I'll stick to Yankee instead.

It's becoming rather a habit to take selfies at work these days. I swear my desk space is like the best cubby hole ever. Well that aside, this random photo was the day I tried out a new matte gloss hence the need for pictorial evidence. NYX does some pretty good matte glosses, and this is coming from me who never ever wears gloss. To sidetrack for a moment, recently I keep having the urge to cut my hair. Been hiding under this mane for the longest time, and I feel like a change is in order. Something fresh. Maybe not yet, cause I'm such a pussy. In the meantime, I'll be looking at styles before deciding on one. I'm pretty sure it'll happen, it's just a matter of when.


Practically a weekly routine for us. Dinner, coffee and catch ups. We are possibly the weirdest best friends ever cause we're not the cuddly comforting sort, yet we understand each other like no other. I swear this is one of the very rare moments of our camwhore shit, just cause we think we're too 'cool' for it (publicly) HAH.  Tight-lipped besties forever.


Cheat day cheat day! These sort of days make me so happy yet so sad at the same time. Devouring shitload of sin (fatty food) always makes a play at my conscious. Which is weird, cause I usually stick to the healthy stuff on weekdays. Paranoia I call it. Last weekend's brunch session was at Stranger's Reunion. Been harping on it for ages, but the lazy in me can never bring myself to venture to places of certain 'ulu' status. Hidden somewhere about Outram Park, it's still quite a walk from the station. Thank goodness for my great 'Challenger' buddy, transportation was made easy for me. Had to share a long table with four others cause the place was jam packed (even at 4.30 pm). Got cheated by Spam Fries which I thought to be sweet potato fries but alas turned out as fried luncheon meat strips served with Japanese mayonnaise. Not that they were bad (they were  a w e s o m e), but the health freak in me screamed just a little. Buttermilk waffles were really light which I loved, but could've done more with just three measly blueberries. I can't remember my friend's dish, but it was equally awesome. Definitely will be back again someday (hopefully) soon.

We met up with the rest of our usual gang after brunch in town. Desserts (after my dessert) were on the agenda, so we headed to try Paris Baguette to catch the hype. Shaved ice and the royal pudding to share among us. The former came in a huge bowl and was overall alright, just like your typical 'ice kacang' if you call it so. The royal pudding... is it me or it just tastes like melted whipped cream? It was kinda overwhelming for me so I didn't finish it. Not a fan.

Faber Bistro to end the night with wine and talk. Never knew of the place, but it's pretty amazing. Sad that I didn't take a photo cause the view is pretty darn sick. Though only accessible by car, the place is really a great night spot to chill or even for a romantic dinner. Amazeballs. I need to go back again and try the food, and probably capture a picture or two.


Back to basics they say. After a full day out on Saturday, it felt apt to stay home the following day. It was raining most of the day anyway so chilling at home was the only option. Spent the day working up my usual daily sweat and watched videos on my laptop. So happy that Project Runway is back on. I don't care how lame it is cause the shit never gets old for me. Secretly rooting for Dom or Justin, whoopwhoop! Dinner was a hearty nutritious meal cooked by the mothership. After a day of feasting the previous day, some colorful vegetables and salmon was a good call. #eatcleanbeleanandeatthemgreens Burp.

Fashion week has again just come and gone. Always a great time for endless amount of eye candy. So much inspiration going on its madness. One of my very favorite past times (um, and at work), you'd either see me scrolling through pages of street styles or feasting on Tumblr posts. Obsessed.

Just some of my very favorites this season, and that's not even the end of it. Loving myself a chic midi  skirt but can't seem to find that perfect one yet. Talk about the banes of owning short legs (insert sulk face). Ahhhh and shoes, shoes, and even more shoes. Never get enough. Always a sweet spot for gorgeous redhead Taylor Tomasi Hill, I'd die for them legs. Miroslava Duma is the cutest petite size ever, just what I need. She makes me want to cut my hair, badly.
