A friend of mine saw this video posted in Reddit. When he played it, it caught my attention. The song has a cute and catchy rhythm. Their video is also cute! Imagine kids dancing wearing different colored tutus and vegetables on their heads. That’s right, vegetables! (These Japanese kids are great dancers by the way). Continue reading
More than 5 years ago, I started learning Japanese. At first it was exciting. It was easy memorizing all those hiragana and katakana. But I got lazy when it came to Kanji and all those conjugations. I also had less time to study because most of my time was spent at the office. There was just no time to study (and yes, I was lazy). But I still challenged myself to take the JLPT level 4. Result: FAILED. I only needed 1 more point to pass. Still not bad for a person who did not study well haha.
I gave Japanese another chance. And I was also chosen to be an AOTS trainee (because I’m awesome) so I had to refresh all of the things I have learned previously before I go to Japan for a 7-month long training (2 months of which was spent in Kansai Kenshuu Center, the rest of the months was spent at the host company).
In KKC, I was placed in an advanced class (because there were only at least 20 people in our batch composed of beginners and advanced learners from different countries). I had no choice. My sensei said I was too advanced to be placed in a beginner’s class, and there was also no class for intermediate learners. So there. My classmates can speak fluent Japanese. I can’t. Though I tried to remain quiet for 2 whole months, the curriculum will really make you speak Japanese. Whether you like it or not. But it’s a good thing, though. If I wasn’t forced to speak, I wouldn’t have learned. Listening and reading are not enough. Continue reading
Hair growing back on my legs makes me feel uncomfortable. I wanted to have my legs waxed so I looked for a waxing salon here in Singapore. And oh my goodness, a full leg wax costs at least SGD 60 (see Pink Parlour)! Since I’m unemployed (that’s why I’m not willing to pay SGD60) and the prices of waxing services are sky high and I don’t want to go back to shaving my legs again, I decided to just wax my own legs. At first I thought of just buying a waxing kit but they’re expensive as well. Then I remembered the wax that LayBare uses. They use cold wax and they don’t use waxing strips. I want to use something like that. So I did my research and found out that I can make my own sugaring paste using ingredients found at home. Yey! Here’s how:
I recently bought the Blackberry Z10 and it sucks that it has a limited number of applications (but it’s still a great phone. I love Blackberry!). Good thing is, there is a way to sideload android apps to BB 10. Hurrah!
I found this Continue reading
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the famous tourist spots in Abu Dhabi, UAE. It is probably the biggest mosaic in the area. You don’t have to pay anything when you enter the mosque. But ALL women will be required to wear an abaya, a black cloak that covers your entire body and the head. Just like this one: Continue reading
Here’s a unique advertisement from Dove. An FBI forensic artist sketches the faces of women based on how they describe themselves and how other people describe them (of course the artist does not see their faces until everything is over). So basically there are two different drawings per person. After each interview, the artist shows the women the differences between the two sketches. Continue reading
No new posts. Well, that isn’t new, right? I’ve put up this blog last 2009, changed the theme many times, pay for domain renewal and web hosting yearly. But it seems I don’t have the drive to update it everyday. It doesn’t help even if I make it one of my New Year’s Resolutions (that is why I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions). As for the other ladies, they’re busy with other stuff: baby, work, love, etc. How about me? Though I am unemployed and have no kids, I’ve been busy doing chores and taking care of my husband (ah yes, I’m now married haha).
But believe me when I say I really do want to blog. I’ve been to places, tried things, ate new food. I wanted to share the experiences. However, I am one lazy person. Yes, I am my worst enemy.
I know I have to do something about my procrastination. So here I am (again) telling this to myself: I will try my very best to update this blog. If not everyday, well at least every week. I’ve got some backlogs. Will blog it as soon as I can.

As a dancer, and a frustrated fashionista, I always consider ‘Style’ and ‘Comfort’ when I dress up. Simple but fashionable, Stylish but Wearable. Continue reading
People around me often say I look like an anime (a Japanese cartoon) even if I am not trying to be one. But come to think of it, their style ain’t that bad. Somehow I can get ideas without actually copying them. And that’s how I started to mix and match clothes to come up with something different that other people don’t normally wear. Continue reading
