7 days left to live

No, no, the title's an exaggeration. Today I had an assessment on an individual oral presentation for one of my my modules and the theme of my presentation was things I would like to do before I die, and our tutor made us base it on a question as such, what will we do if we have 7 days left to live?

Let me talk about my presentation first. I drafted up a speech, albeit without much research, but I didn't really read my speech out during the presentation. I wrote the main points on a piece of paper, what I should do, as each day passed by. The first thing I wanted to do was to write a will. The rest of the days were dedicated to travel and on the last day, I said I would send in my obituary to the newspapers and spend the rest of the days with my sister, mum and two dogs, although one is not living with us any more thanks to the father that I hate so much. Damn me I sound like emo shitz.

When I came back home, I Googled photos of the places I said I would like to go to. One such was Amsterdam, also better known as the sex and drug capital of Europe. I said I didn't want to die a virgin, so I'll go to Amsterdam to have sex.

The red light districts there are literally red! Well, I'm kind of aware that in Amsterdam, prostitutes stand behind the glass windows like mannequins, but why do all the photos only show women?

I really want to go to Venice as well! I've learned about Venetian history and culture through social studies lesson and it's quite well known that people travel from town to town via gondolas, and it is distinct for it's culture as well.

I also said I wanted to visit Tokyo for it's vibrant and daring fashion, and spend a whole day there shopping. I fell in love with Japan long ago because of visual kei, and of course if I were to go there to shop, I would buy clothes from Liz Lisa, Murua, W♥C and other brands!

Liz Lisa is definitely one of my favourite brands because of their girly designs!I love Wakatsuki Chinatsu's style! It's really unique!

Well, I said lots of other things I would love to do before I actually die and I got all sorts of comments because we had to be evaluated by classmates. Two people said I was a bimbo but I know I'm not stupid, so I'll gladly accept the fact that I'm pretty! (:

I'll say that after I drafted up my presentation, 7 days isn't a lot to do everything one would probably want to do so while you're still alive and healthy, do the things you want because we only live once, so we should make our life as fulfilling as possible! That's all from me for now, what aspirations do you have? Share them! (:

A dream

It would be nice, if I could have a dream come true. When I was a kid, I was spoon fed with fairy tales and believed in happily ever after. I wonder if I still do now. Well, turns out life is no bed of roses.

If I could have a wish that would be granted, I would wish for a thousand more wishes. Cause I'm greedy enough.

Alright, I'm just blogging to destress. Some time later I'll look at this and be grossed out at how emo deep shit I was.

Muay Thai - Q&A

I intended to keep the fact that I learned muay thai a secret because I was afraid I would scare people off, but alas comes the time when the cat has been let out of the bag- I carry my gloves to school most of the time and some how they've caught people's attention. I've been asked these questions a lot of times so I guess I'll just publish them on my blog.
  1. Of all martial arts, why muay thai?
    It wasn't my choice at first, I wanted to learn another martial arts which my parents were kind of against. My parents wanted me to learn muay thai because they've witness how 'fit' my sister has become, although she still doesn't look very fit to me muahahaha. Although I was reluctant, I attended the trial lesson and I actually found muay thai fun. Heeheehee.
  2. How long have you been doing muay thai?
  3. I'm into my third month. The first month I trained I attended once a week, whereas I signed up for the unlimited package in the second month where I would could at least three times a week and at most five times a week.
  4. Where do you train at?
  5. I train at ImpactMMA, which is located in Shenton House. They offer Brazilian Jiujitsu and MMA trainings as well.
  6. What do you do in training?
  7. Honestly, a lot of cardio is involved. Aside from technical training, a lot of time is spent doing things like sit ups, push ups, squats, etc.
  8. Does muay thai help to burn fats?
  9. Although I don't think I've burnt off any fats, YES, muay thai does help to burn fats and lose weight. This is evident from a few who trains at the same gym as I do.
  10. Why are your gloves so big?
  11. They aren't huge at all, why are your eyes so small?
Hope this serves to help most of your questions! If there are any more questions you have about muay thai, please feel free to leave them in the comments section. Cheerios and have a nice day!

MyFatPocket! - and why I love them ♥

Has anyone else heard about MyFatPocket?

I first found out about MyFatPocket(MFP) after stumbling upon Miyake's blog some time back. MFP is actually one of the leading women portals in Singapore and its website features topics such as beauty, lifestyle and gossips. Of course there's more! Some time around last year, I started to participate actively in the forum because of the luxury giveaway which I also found out from Miyake's blog! Quite honestly, I never I thought I would have won anything but I walked away with the grand price of the Chanel 2.55 which costs around $6, 500! I was really lucky, was I not? And they don't just give me the bag. They fetched me from my house(by cab of course), took me to the Chanel boutique in MBS, allowed me to choose which one I want(of course there's a price limit), paid my dinner and sent me back home!

Wanted to get mine in pink, but I listened to my mum and got black! But I'm loving it

It doesn't stop there, right away after the giveaway, MFP re-introduced sample points and members can collect samples or full-sized products! For example, I've redeemed full-sized products from Fuwarie! I've checked out two more carts of Fuwarie products and facial masks, and their office in Telok Ayer is actually really near the gym I train at in Shenton Way, so technically speaking, I pay nothing for collecting these products!

Bobbed hair styling mist, tight arrange jam and soft arrange jam! Can't wait to test them out!

Of course there are other giveaways and contests! They've introduced Friday freebies and recently, I won an iPad 2 cover from their series of giveaway from Singpost's new line of products, Enveloopy! I was hoping to win the laptop cover but I guess winning the iPad cover was awesome too, just that I don't have an iPad. Heh heh heh. But that can wait, I believe my dad will buy me an iPad soon. Teehee.

Wanton Doodle iPad cover! It looks much cuter in reality!

Well, what are you waiting for? Click here to register on their forum now!

Reunion dinner

This is going to be a plain, boring blog post with no pictures at all, written simply to remind myself of the reunion dinner that happened last evening.

To be honest, I've always hated my dad's side of the family, except for my first aunt, because I've always thought of them as stern people that make little judgement in whatever they do. There's a bad side to it that happened while I was growing up. And so, I wasn't looking forward to sitting down at a dining table with all of them which was supposed to happen next week, but due to a miscommunication, it was supposed to happen last night.

I was already savouring the taste of my McDee's prosperity burger and I received a call from my cousin who told me that we should be heading to a restaurant, Jim Tim Restaurant to be exact by the time I had finished my meal. I was so pissed because they could have called earlier. After all, they called me later than the supposed meeting time, which was very clear to be 7pm be the dinner this week or next. And I was cursing with my sister.

So we flagged a cab down to the restaurant which was located in Ang Mo Kio. And of course I expected the worst, but the dinner was surprisingly good, not only because of the food.

The restaurant was a fairly affordable one, considering that one table costs around $390 and there were nine of us, and it was a 7-course dinner. I don't take into fancy Chinese cuisine, but the dessert was pretty good.

The first dish was lo hei, just like last year. My aunt wished I would do well in studies, my uncle wished I would lose weight and my dad wished he would strike 4-D and Toto.

Of course there were things that I didn't enjoy. Shark's fins because why the hell are we eating shark's fins when sharks are going to be extinct! But I didn't dare voice that out because I was afraid of sounding like a helpless goose nyapping away about conserving sharks. And of course I forced myself to eat duck meat. HOW COULD I EAT DUCK MEAT. Ducks are so cute, and I just ate something cute. First time eating duck meat and I'm never GONNA do it again. I hope I re-incarnate as a shark or a duck if re-incarnation exists.

We had a good chat, had a good laugh and spoke about different things; things I never expected I would talk to them about. A real surprise, that is. I had a good meal.
