What’s In My Mail?!

these are what coming in my mail this week πŸ™‚

we start with the first parcel on Tuesday. jeng… jeng… jeng…

it’s my order!!!! from LovingMinerals. i placed my order and payment on Sunday and the goods arrived in 2 days. not bad!

was so excited to see how my order actually look like. cos this is my 1st time purchasing cosmetics online.

so thoughtful!!

then here they are…. my 1st ever Loving Sample Kit!!


actually, Loving Sample Kit consists of 3 types of foundation, 1 finishing powder and 1 blusher (all by ur own choice of shade). but i have purchased together the add-on item that’s the baby kabuki brush. and and… i didnt know that they will also send one eye pigment sample… i was surprised!! cool!! all of these plus shipping at RM63 only.

my sample shades. the three sample on top are the foundation. i got one from Everyday Minerals and two from Lumiere. the bottom are the finishing powder and the blush.

and here is the complimentary item they sent together with the kit.

an eye pigment in Sublime. and it's the kind of shade that i like and will use always πŸ™‚

apart from that they also inserted this together. at first i thought it’s just a regular business card but after that i saw the something at the bottom corner. a discount code. haha!! 5% off discount code.

and finally, i must say that my main reason to purchase this sample kit is because of this cutie….. :p

baby kabuki brush... hehehe....

so far i only tried on the finishing powder. dont dare to use the foundations yet cos i suddenly have few breakouts recently and i seldom have breakouts!!!! (another story another day) i can say that it’s a pretty good stuff u wont regret it. the only bummer now is that i realised that the Lumiere Cashmere Foundation in Light Beige is a tad bit too fair / light for my skin 😦 i am not that fair lah….. T___T they receive goods exchange on T&C and only if you are in klang valley area. since i’m in labuan i better forget it. the postal alone will cost more than goods itself.

if u want to try on their sample/ product, go feast your eyes with choices HERE. the ppl there are very loving… πŸ™‚

and then on Wednesday i received another parcel. and in my head i went “wow!! this is fast!!”

it was my other online purchase. also my first time. from LuvClothez.com.

ok. to be honest i am one of those ppl who dont fancy online boutiques or anything that related to online shopping cos i prefer to be able to see, touch, try or even smell on the real item with my own five sensory systems. i am very skeptical like that. can?! kns!! but labuan has made me a shopping deprived person T___T so online shopping is the next best thing to feast my eyes with new arrivals and purchase things i need or errr… want. (nak harapkan the mall here?!! in 100 years to come lah!!)

it’s a jacket. i’ve been hunting for jacket the whole month (but i am stuck in Labuan!!!!!) and i happened to chanced upon this site. i went through other online store but they all were either in the states or they just dont ship to malaysia T____T

and this is how the fabric looks like. the material is a bit wool-ish. good to stay warm cos i am going to somewhere wintery / fall soon. aihhh… that’s why…………

got a faux fur some more. hopefully it really will keep me warm then >.<

nah, this is how the whole jacket looks like (minus the belt. weird. it stated there the belt and bag are model’s own. but look at the belt!! it’s the same material as the jacket!!! *2nd thought of online shopping again*)

and u think i’ll post with me wearing it? sorry la wait till i make-up kaw-kaw like the model 1st :p

and i would also like to praise Pos Laju for their quick delivery too. we sometimes complain about how slow they can be but these two…. they were fast!! both my purchases arrived 2 days upon my order and payment.

that’s it for now. suddenly blacked out now it’s hot. time for a jog!!

be blessed always, ppl!

My Vuvuzela Is For Espana

i know… i know…. since when do i watch football, right??! well, since the whole family and TheBoyfriend and cols and the whole world started the frenzy la when?! i’m not a football fan but once in a while i do watch the game. especially when my fav team play (which i superficially chose by the look of the players. ngeee~~ dont hate!) and of course good skills and machoness while playing counts. again i dont exactly know how good is good skill but i know when the defenders and the strikers plays till i feel like jumping on the couch. that’s good skill. at least for me. cos i am ignorant to all the football vocabs like that. and in real life, my uncle is a referee and right in front of my grandparents’ house is a football field of whoch we’ll watch ppl play every christmas. it’s their tradition. and wth, even my mom plays football when she was younger. *gasp!!* (and i heard she was good too…. my goodness me… mummy!!) so it’s hard to not like football even though i am not a fan.

i know it’s a hype. but wth, it’s only once in four years. so what not to watch?! and because i am not a fan i only started watching from the germany vs argentina game last weekend. i wanted to watch argentina. and wanted them to win. the reason, because maradona was there. he is the 1st football icon that i knew since i know what’s football in my childhood. so he was my secret football hero then. hehe. but 4-0?! T______________T dunno what to say. but the gloom was redeemed after germany lost to spain this morning. yahoooOO!! arent they just so delicious to look at?! i mean the spaniards. but was a bit geram when pedro actually has a chance to pass the ball to torres but he didnt!! if he did they probably could score 2-0. but all is good though. the world is eager to watch both 1st timer at the final…. NED vs ESP. dont we just love underdogs??!!

oh how can we forget about him??! paul the octopus!! haha!! oh dear, now that he might become german’s fav grilled octo now since it has picked spain over germany during it’s prediction. haha!! it’s funny how human can believe in such creature’s prediction. but he was darn accurate, huh!! but but but…. Jangan Percayakan Sotoooooooonggggg……” LOL!!

nah… just for fun… πŸ˜€

ok lah, i actually planned to do some photo editing and upload some of my recent wedding shots up but as usual i’m procrastinating. gah!! this habit should be demolished from the face of this earth!!! grrrrrrr……!!!!!

hmm…. i think i’ll cook tonight.

be blessed, ppl!!

Thursday Thoughts

bloated stomach. AGAIN! this is getting into my nerves already!! but let me tell u a story. a testimonial will be more like it. u see. i’ve been having this bloated stomach since the last two weeks and the drugs i consumed didnt give much help 😦 but still i must finish the whole drugs thing. well, using drugs is never a good thing, no?! i thought so. and last saturday i had this unbearable pain inside that i couldnt get up. (eh, have anyone have this experience or not? too much wind trapped inside ur stomach that can drive u nuts?! pls tell me this is normal) aduhai. so i was in pain. i wanted to cry. oh yeah. i am a cry baby so what? then i remembered i just woke up and i havent said my morning prayer. so i prayed. and then i dawn to me that since i was praying why not pray for healing too? right?! i dont ask for immediate recovery just make it bearable. so in Jesus name i plead. with all faith and tongue and faith alone with one hand on the said stomach i prayed. and….. guess what?! just like this verse β€œO Lord my God, I cried out to You, and You have healed me.” (Psalm 30:2) i was healed!!! immediately!! oh wait since it was so amazing it deserves a repeat. I WAS HEALED IMMEDIATELY!! how awesome is that?!! all my pain was literally gone. i couldnt feel a twinge of pain. amazing, isnt it?!! all u have to do is ASK and HAVE FAITH!! honestly, i wanted to spring out of my bed to write this testimonial right away then but alas i procrastinated. so typical! but i’ve make a point to post this as that’s what a once a wretched like me has promised to do. well, this is only the simple one, He has showed me many miracles that my gratitude and ‘thank you’ is infinity.

β€œFor with God nothing will be impossible.” (Luke 1:37)


and a friend’s father has just passed recently. news like this makes us sad. but life must go on for every funeral there will be a wedding and birth…. God has his own ways. and His way is always the best.


was in a frenzy to catch up a dateline of my photos last night. and i need to be connected to the internet. my sucky broadband would not help this time so i must stay back at the office for the internet. and i had until midnight. in time like this that u’ll know good friends that care. i called my 2 high school friends up just to accompany me till i finish. all i need is company when i am done and going down to the car as this place isnt the safest corner in lbu. they really waited up with me. although they went out for beers half way of the boredom’s but still they waited till i was done. that my friends, are true friends. and a set of midnight McD can never compare to their kind heart of taking care of me. i heart.

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Prov 17:17


what made my day today?! chipped toe nail!! or should i say broken toe nails?! really. can my day be even more interesting than this?!!

there goes my pedi!!

and this is why i said it made my day. i took time to snap it!! i am boring so sue me if u like. bluek!! >u<
