There was a weight check today and *drum rolls* I GAINED WEIGHT!!
I am very pleased indeed.
I haven't gain any weight for around 10 years or more, and I know I am too skinny so imagine my joy when I found out I had put on so weight.
The last time there was a change in my weight was when I was 17 or 18, I can't really remember. That was a weight loss of around 3-5kg. Ever since then, I haven't gain any weight.
I'm actually quite worried about talking weight here but whatever makes me happy yeah? Ha.
Well.... maybe I should talk a bit about my lifestyle or eating habits?
I don't control what I eat or how often I eat or snack. Sometimes even when I am feeling full, I still can't help but snack a little. The only thing that I sometimes control is the time of my last snack or meal. I try not to eat anything too heavy after 8-9pm. But this is sometimes impossible especially in my previous job or when I was working those non office hours jobs, like when I was working as a part time waitress or sales assistant during school days.
I'm feeling hungry already! So I'm off to snacky snack and head to bed. Today is a super information overload day! My brain needs to zzz.
Hope everyone is doing well!

I know it has been ages since I last blog, I do apologise! Life have been a whirlwind these few months. In a good way!
Let me give you some updates.
Let me warn you first that, this post is BORING. I am just going on and on about my life now and there are only images of nothing but MY FACE.
The biggest change that has happened is that I have left my previous job. I really do like what I was there, pay was not too bad, boss acknowledges our hard work, colleagues were fantastic, hours are flexible. I did have to burn several weekends there.
Remember I said something about achieving something I really want in life on an earlier post? Yup, I am talking about my dream job! I am not sure how many of you would like to know what my dream job is...... but I will share nevertheless.
Cabin Crew. There. I've said it.
So I am now with Singapore Airlines, my national carrier. They have a very strict policy on blogging and even posting of photographs. So I will not talk too much about that.
I am still undergoing training at the moment. Office hours, Monday to Friday. My 'classmates' (they call it batch mate actually) are really fun people, they make me look forward to class everyday! The only thing that put me off about going for training is the SUPER STRICT rules and regulations they have. We are sort of like a uniform group anyway, so with any uniform jobs or careers, you are representing the company and we have to protect the company's image, so I do understand.
So with these strict rules, most of the office wear in my wardrobe is not appropriate for classes. To begin with I do not have much office wear! All my previous jobs do not require me to dress office wear really, only occasionally when we had to meet clients. I also had to get my hair cut and dyed.
This is how I have to look everyday from Monday to Friday.
The Chili red lip color is a must.
I actually quite like the blue eyeshadow There are some girls who just hates it.
I really rather not part my bangs but we have to show our brows.
There, so much better on days off!
Thank you for reading this boring post! I hope everyone is doing something that they enjoy now and is happy!

As some of you might have known, I bought a book a few weekends back. So after reading about halfway into the book, I thought I will talk a little about it.
Serena! This is for you!
This is actually my first self-help book. I usually don't read non-fiction book. They just seems so boring. But there has got to be some reason why people pick up self-help books right? Or why they are called self-help books right? So yeah, a month or so back, I was feeling....bothered and unhappy and all. So I met up a gf and went to pick up one.
This is a book on basically being a happier person. Or how to become happier than you already am now.
I do occasionally browse self-help books but like mentioned earlier they are so ZZZ, but this book is not! Well.... there is no humor nor funny examples. But it is backed by numerous groundbreaking research studies. This is how this book is different and is able to capture my attention and not let me get distracted when reading. All the various methodologies mentioned have research studies to prove their points and results, so you will know that it will work.
Since my current job is in market research field, I can really relate to the book. You know everyone can say how counting your blessings can make you happier or make you appreciate what ever you have now more, but you never know whether if it really works. So this book shows various research studies to prove how this method really works. Then you won't feel so skeptical about the truth behind it because figures and results never lies.
Another thing I like about the book is that there are activities for you to do! Below are some outtakes from the book.
Overall, it is an interesting read and I must say it has help me in becoming happier over these few weeks.
Look at all this Anna Sui love!! They are love from the bro's girlfriend! She gave me all these goodies, even before I had met her.
I will be adding some more stuffs for the Giveaway, so do keep a lookout!

Hi there! I have been pondering about a giveaway but somehow I just cannot find a day or event to hold one. Until I saw this super cute Trick or Treat bag made of felt material!
So yup! A Halloween giveaway! This is not a much celebrated occasion in Singapore. The adults either spend it in a club wearing Halloween dress up or it is simply just another day in the year.
Lets just get to it shall we?
Can you see what is in the bag?
From right to left. Halloween theme felt bag. A kitty print hair tie. A 'Ferrero Rocher' coin purse. A box of Nail Art. *A Lancome Juicy Tube in Baby Doll.* A whole packet of Yuzu(orange) Tea. A pair of Hello Kitty chopsticks.
A little close up.
*I'm still contemplating if I should include the lipgloss. It is brand new, never been used. But it has no packaging or whatsoever. I got it from Ebay.*
Now how do you enter?
1) You must be a follower of my blog.
2) Tell me 'What is happiness to you?'
3) Leave down your email together with your answer.
However, if you post about this giveaway in your blog, you will have extra 1 entry!

Yesterday I had a really therapeutic meet up with a gf. Here we are at Coffee Club Express for lunch. Everything was yummy!
Rich chocolatey desert for her.
The same old Ice Mocha for me. Haha.
We then head to Kino to look at some books and magazines.
We were at the Philosophy and Psychology section and my gf had this idea to take photos against the sign. ** My frowning face depicts that I could not find a book that I like.
Here is what I got.
And this is what she got.
Some random sightings around town.
This really amuses me. They even have a twilight bedsheets cover set!
It is only September but 2011 diaries are on the shelves already! I was so tempted to get one!
I will be having my very first giveaway very soon! Do look out for it in the next post!

Last weekend, the bffs gave me a pair of tickets for a musical! This was the second musical I watched with the bf. The first was Cats! But unlike Cats which is purely a theatrical musical, Voyage de la Vie comprises of breathtaking circus acts, contortion, trapeze, juggling and last but not least magic. It really kept me at the edge of my seat.
Photography was not allowed. But I sneakily took some shots. The moon looks so enchanting. This was the beginning of a Trapeze-Contortion act by Aurelia Cats. She is a beauty! Her act was one of my favorite!
Sorry! There were more acts but I was too engrossed in the show and did not took any more.
The show coming to an end.
We walked around a bit after the show, but all the stores were closed already. We will head back again one day!
One of the 24hours eatery in Universal Studio Singapore. Everything was good except that dumpling soup! Blehh.
I love the Mango pudding!
On a side note, I used to complain to the bf that he doesn't take photos of me. But now that he got his iphone. He have been sneakily snapping photos of me when I am eating! Only when I am eating! How annoying. I am really such a pain, I complained that he don't take, now that he is taking, I'm complaining too.
I got this dress from Topshop on a sale. It was SGD100+, but it only cost me SGD30 after discount!
What activity have you been up to lately?
