Serious Retail Therapy

December 19th, 2007 Comments(7)

I've been feeling under the weather of late, because nothing seems to be going right. Well, nothing like some retail therapy to fix it. My haul today:

Empire waistline dress from Blossomz with a freaking 40% discount because of my dear cousin. :) And oh, a bra and panty set that is soooo sweet I just had to buy it. $16.90. No visuals. :P

Chermaine butterly earrings by Jinling. Customised for me with purple flower, with the right side shortened.

Jinling's Princess Lovely Jean necklace, customised for me as well. :)

I requested matching earrings for that necklace. Jinling is really incredibly talented. And I'm really jealous.

I also placed a reservation for the pair of earrings I lost. Total expenditure: Too much.

Lost My Jewelry

I'm so upset and pissed with myself. I forgot the pouch with my favourite earrings and necklace when I moved out of my dorm room. And now the housekeeping supposedly can't find it. Told me they found a black wallet with a Vietnamese boy's ID in one of my drawers. How is that possible? I've opened every drawer before and I've never seen said wallet.

Argh. Either they went to the wrong room (they swear they haven't) or the cleaners took my jewelry and tried to fob me off with the Vietnamese boy's wallet or something. (Why? They aren't expensive and probably don't suit them. Wearing someone else's earrings is just gross.)

The Auntie In Me

I trooped over to Chinatown to get all the stuff I usually use. In a larger quantity. Total savings: Almost 100 buckaroos!

I Lost Weight

I take back all the whining about gaining 5kg. My size 25 hipster jeans are hanging really low on my hips now. I just want my jeans to fit properly, dammit. :(

Some weirdo girl came up to me after the exam and told me, "I'm happy." :P

Actually, she said, "I'm Hapie." Though of course I was thinking of the former. I think I stared at her like o.O for about 5 seconds. ;)

I've been up since 5 AM and am on my second mug of coffee. My eyes are looking unbelievably small. My mind has plenty of jumbled up information that probably has no hope of being reassembled into coherent answers later. I have a stomachache. I haven't finished my readings.

I need to get my brows tortured after the Econs exam later. And then I need to pack up my junk and head for home.

It's been a crap semester. Long day ahead.

On another note, my skin is looking the best it has ever looked this entire year. When everyone is having exam breakouts. There is possibly something quite wrong with this. Not that I'm complaining.

Computing Exam

I am an idiot. I am a complete utter fool.

I've been coding HTML since I was 12. TWELVE! And I forgot how to code a frameset. <div>'s have ruined me. How could I? HOW COULD I?

I haven't slept a wink at all last night. I essentially wasted 7.5 hours tossing and turning because the weather was too fuqn sweltering even with 2 fans at full blast.


The Beauty Brains

November 25th, 2007 Comments(2)

The Beauty Brains is a wonderful read for anyone remotely concerned about what they're slathering on their own bodies. I can't say I agree with everything that's on that site, but it does teach you how to be a more discerning consumer. It also busts some serious myths as well as unscrupulous marketing. I'm familiar with angel dusting, even though I didn't know this marketing gimmick had a name. No, sodium lauryl sulfate doesn't give you cancer. No, mineral oil doesn't clog your pores. No, 'natural' products aren't necessarily better for your skin, and chemicals aren't synonymous with toxicity. (If I wanted natural products, I would make them in my own kitchen.)

Of course, if you have loads of money to throw around, and you feel good using gimmicky products that promise you the moon and some clouds, and Chang'e as a gift-with-purchase, by all means do so. A large part of the consumer experience is really more psychological than anything else. Alternatively, you could always donate the extra to poor ol' reverie and she'll convince you that the $7.90 moisturiser works as well as that $200 one (and that you don't need Chang'e to upstage you).

Finance Exam Prep

Either sides of my cheatsheet for Finance exam on Tuesday. Methinks after squinting at it throughout the exam, my eyesight will be completely destroyed. Typing it was a torture.

Odex Pwned II

November 22nd, 2007 Comments(0)

The Odex website got hax0red and replaced with a notice that's all baby pink and lavender today. :P The server is now apparently down. *Giggles*

[edit]Some sources cited that the server didn't get compromised, the domain name did. *Shrugs* Either way, it's hacked.

Odex Chronicles updated.

It's Been Too Long
