She makes me so happy!!


It's already 6am but I felt inspired to write a disgusting blog post about Igloo!!

Who knew bunnies could be so awesome? It has been a few months now that I've had Igloo and she makes me so happy I can't even... Compared to nasty Pumpkin**, I'm just so super grateful that this relationship turned out this way.

(**if you didn't know, bought a Yorkshire terrier, she didn't like me and I didn't like her, after 1 year of trying to love her, gave her away to responsible rich loving new owners, got scolded like mad by moralistic superior dog lovers who kept rubbing in my face how THEIR dog loves them.)

I bought Igloo because she was so freaking cute when she was a baby and I had a bout of maternal instincts insanity. I thought for the rest of her life she'd have to live in a cage like most of the pet bunnies I've seen people have.

But one fine day I thought to myself, "Hey, people have said that bunnies can be toilet trained so I'm just gonna give it a try."

So I just opened her kitty-litter-filled cage and shut my Princess room door to let her explore around. I wanted to monitor and see if she goes back to the cage to eliminate. She had no prior "training" other than the fact that she's always been doing her business in that cage since, well, she was locked up in it. So of course I was totally skeptical.

To my huge surprise hours passed and I see her occasionally hop back to the cage to eliminate. And then a day passed. No poop droppings outside her cage, NOT A SINGLE ONE. And bunnies poop A LOT.

I was so happy at that point I could almost die! Within a day, with no effort on my part whatsoever, I KNEW I could trust her. She could now have the whole room to roam around in, something I desperately wanted Pumpkin to be able to do but never accomplished.

I spent 1 whole year training Pumpkin, looking at her for hours on end, giving her treats when she goes back to the correct place to do her business, scolding her when she does it wrong.

I know irritating dog lovers will now tell me my training possibly sucked balls and how their dogs do it correct all the time.

But trust me, I tried every possible method. I used newspapers shrinking in surface area. I tried pee pads. I tried treats, I tried spankings (OH YES I DID DOG LOVERS, WHATCHA GONNA DO ABOUT THAT?), I tried stern voices, I tried pee sprays, I tried bringing her out frequently on walks, I tried spaying, I tried spending hundreds and hundreds on products and eventually even diapers... But the diapers have a hole for tails and her poop drops out of it... In the wrong places.

You have no idea how frustrating and stressful it is to let your dog out of her pen and just KNOW she is going to make a mistake. It's not so much the cleaning up, more of the disappointment. WHAT AM I DOING WRONGLY? At the end of the day Pumpkin went back to her pee pads to do her business about 80% of the time correct. This means, if I let her out of her pen, out of 5 times she pees/poops, once she will do it wrong.

I suspect that she is doing it just out of pure spite because she would actually LOOK at me with those hypocritical puppy eyes and spray pee on my carpet. She would then run away, scared, as she anticipates my tidal wave of fury. I wasn't ignoring her, so it wasn't for attention. Maybe she has her reasons but who knows? She's just an evil cunt from hell, I swear, sent here to test my patience and put a dent on my otherwise dandy life.

If she had other redeeming qualities it won't be so bad, I can still accept this flaw of hers but no... She is super hyperactive and never allows hugs or cuddles without nipping, struggling or loads of slobbery licks. Maybe some people like their dogs rambunctious but I hated it. I wanted a calm, cuddly pet. Not super charged up as if high on red bull all the time. She bites and destroys everything in her path even though she has a hundred toys (trust me I spoilt her). Even Kaykay who took care of her for me for a few days hated her. Mike too, hated her.

Worst of all she doesn't love me. Don't ask me how I know, I just do. And that's fine, because I didn't love her too. I had affection for her - afterall she is very cute and has her moments, but to call that 'love' is an insult to the real, unadulterated love people have for their pets who love them back.

But I've complained about all these before. This blog entry is not about Pumpkin the bitch, it's about Igloo.

So when people tell me how much their dog loves them, it always gets me so jealous. "What is wrong with me? Am I such a terrible human being that no animal can love me?" I wondered for the longest time, miserable. I wanted that relationship, and now......... I have it! I do, finally! There is nothing wrong with me afterall! Pumpkin and I were just not a good match.

(Also I think Nanolove loved me but she is a tiny hammie and it's harder to tell with a hammie.)

So yes after that day of allowing Igloo to go out of her cage, I've since went to the pet shop to buy fences and a smaller kitty litter pan for her, meant for cats.

When I'm sleeping or if I'm out, I fence up half of the room so she can't bite wires for hours on end and electrocute herself. She hasn't done that yet so far, but I don't want to take the risk. When I'm home, she gets the whole room. I even sometimes let her roam around the living room!!

Sometimes she hits under the daybed to snooze because bunnies like the dark.


Other times she sits close to me as I use the computer, like a dog would, just lying close or grooming herself.

Pumpkin never used to do that. She'd always escape out of sight and be destroying something in the living room or kitchen.

Sometimes she hops around, sniffing at stuff and standing up when curious. And when she is happy, she does binkies, which is truly a sight to behold.

When I call her, she hops over to my side. If I sit down on the floor, she comes close and snuggles, hoping I will scratch her ears.


Have you ever had a bunny put her front paws on your lap and look up at you before??



Whenever I am getting ready to go out and putting on makeup she squeezes right between my feet and lies there flat to sleep. I don't even want to go out anymore because I don't want to wake her up. ♥

If I'm using the computer for too long and ignoring her, she'd nudge my feet with her nose or paws.

She loves feet stroking lol

I love how easy her companionship is. I don't know how bunnies usually behave, but the fact that when she sees me near she comes quietly sit close to me is PERFECT. To me a dog's excitement is a bit too overzealous and annoying. Tail wagging is fine, but please don't stand up on my chest, lick nonstop, sprint around or bark and pant like mad. Too aloof is no good too - lying quietly down by my side is just the right balance. :)

She follows me as I leave the room and waits by the door when I come back. Not always, but often. I feel so looooooooved. So this is why people are so mad about their pets!

If I knew bunnies could be awesome I would have bought one long ago wtf. I suppose different species of animals suit different people, and my character/lifestyle is just more suited for buns?

Anyway, if you are thinking of buying a pet and don't know what sort of animal to get, here is why bunnies are like, the best pets ever:

1) They shit literally doesn't stink. It's dry pellets. Many of them, but not smelly. They also poop soft poop sometimes but they promptly eat those. It's in their nature because soft poop means it wasn't digested well and needs to go one more cycle. Fine by me, it's not like bunnies can have stinky breath so eat away! I don't have to clean it muahaha.

2) Their pee is smelly, not as bad as cats, but I don't know if the kitty litter I'm using is awesomesauce or what... After being absorbed by the litter it doesn't stink anymore!! I change the litter once every 2 or 3 days, which is super little work compared to cleaning up after dogs or even cats. Hammies are even better though, I cleaned Nanolove's pee pan once every week!

3) Bunnies are VERY clean by nature.

You don't ever have to bathe them. They are bathing themselves all the time!! Igloo always smells and feels clean. :D Being clean, of course, also affects how fastidious they are about their eliminating habits.

I remember the days of bathing Pumpkin and Cloudy and having to pluck bits of shit off their asshole stuck to the fur whenever I bathe them. URGHHHHHHHH. No more cleaning eye shit or assholes for me!

4) Bunnies don't really shed, unless you get an angora bunny or something similarly fluffy. Igloo's fur is very downy so when she drops hair, it just forms a fluffy hairball on the floor, which looks like lint. I actually wanted a cat but cats all shed a lot and I didn't want hairs all over my clothes all the time. I don't know how cat ladies with 20 cats deal with all the cat hair!!

5) Bunnies are so F-ing cute!! I suppose this is subjective. To be fair I think a lot of bunnies become quite ugly after they become adults, compared to how cute they were as a baby. I actually think Netherlands dwarf adults are not cute :X coz their faces are so long. Pick your poison!

But holland lops remain cute forever!! Ok fine this is subjective too. But who can honestly say that a bunny washing its ears or standing on hind legs is not cute?! Or when they sneeze or yawn... OMG. And bunnies are so soft and fluffy all over!

6) Bunnies do not make noise. No barking, no yowling. They are 100% quiet.

7) When dogs lick you: OMG FUCK OFF YOUR SALIVA IS SO WET AND IT STINKS.

When a cat licks you: OMG COOL YOUR TONGUE IS SO DRY AND PRICKLY AHAHAHA.

When a bunny licks you: OMGOMGOMG YOUR TONGUE IS SO TINY AND CUTE AND DARTY AND YOU LOVE ME!! AW I LOVE YOU TOO!!

*I might be a bit biased against dogs*

8) Bunnies can be trained. Perhaps you have seen youtube videos of bunnies doing competitive hurdles. They are very smart! At home, you can train you bun to come when called and stand on hind legs on command. My friend Rykiel who bought Igloo's sister actually trained her bunny stand up on hind legs to 'kiss' her on the cheek. Can anything be cuter?!

9) Bunnies are expressive too! Bunnies always appear so stoic but they have their little ways of showing affection, just like a dog wagging its tail or a cat purring. They do binkies when happy. When I first saw Igloo doing binkies I was so amazed I felt like I witnessed a leprechaun.

If you have won over your bun's love, he will groom you with licks, which will not be readily given to any stranger. When getting scratched/pet, they sometimes grind their teeth softly in contentment and close their eyes. But I guess cats win this category of showing love coz they knead your tummy fats with their paws which is super cute. Ok fine, a dog can wait around in train stations for 8 years for dead owners to return. But I'm just saying bunnies express love too!

10) Even their food is pleasant!! They eat dry pellets which are not smelly. Also hay, which smells super nice. And they nom on things like freaking roses wtf. Because I want to get veggies for Igloo to eat I also tend to cook more veggies for myself to eat, which is awesome. :)



Of course bunnies have their bad points too, and here are some:

1) Bunnies bite stuff.

Their idea of a fun time is to burrow in stuff, dig, and chew. So if you have a bored bunny it might start destroying your belongings. So far Igloo has plucked plaster off the wall and chewed on the rubber mat I bought her. So if you don't want your bunny destroying your stuff, the only way is to quarantine the items!

It's not so bad once you start realising they only bite certain items... Get them a cardboard box to tear up when they are bored and they will stop biting your things!

2) Fear of humans.

By nature bunnies are prey animals, which means that they tend to have trust issues. They probably will take longer to get used to humans than a dog or cat, but I never had any issues with Igloo because I got her when she was very young. But if your bunny doesn't trust you it might not want to be close to you or might even bite!! I'd advise you guys to get younger bunnies (try moomoopets, that's where I got igloo!) and if you have loads of patience or have a big enough heart then of course adopt one! Many people abandoned their bunnies and those deserve a second chance too.

3) Limited activities together

If your bunny is an indoor pet there is only so much you can do with it. Bunnies cannot go to the beach with you like a dog can, or ride in a car. You can bring them for a walk with a leash but they cannot be made to follow you, you have to let the leash slack and follow them as they hop around to explore.

4) They hate being off the ground

In the wild a bunny's instinct is to bolt when it's confronted with danger. Being lifted off the ground means they are trapped and cannot bolt when they are scared. This also means bunnies hate being carried by us and it makes them uneasy so they squirm and panic when we try. It's not impossible, you just have to have a very firm hold on them and make them feel more secure. When they are pet or stroked on the ground or couch or bed though, they love it.


But all these I don't mind because I love Igloo so much I sometimes feel like I'm gonna explode!! ♥

I cut my hair + I am a proud homeowner!

I got two big things to announce!! And they are....... Oh you already know from the title. LOL

Cant believe till this fucking day I'm still getting crazy comments from the previous blog entry, talking about how I'm jealous of Adele and how I put makeup too (? relevance?) and how I did plastic surgery. "Xiaxue you are just jealous because you can never win grammys!" - Not that I'd reject a fucking grammy if it's shoved in my face of course but wtf man... By that logic I should hate ALL past grammy winners, no? And don't say NEVER!! I'm still young! LOL

The thing I cannot stand the most is how people keep bleating about how she has "real talent". Excuse me? Know how to sing and write songs big fuck ah? Have you even seen Jay Chou fucking play two pianos at once, or seen me paint an awesome self portrait *ahem*??? Please, so many people have amazing talents. Even coming up with amazing styles like Lady Gaga is a talent, so stop saying Adele is soooooo super talented, like she is some rare commodity, ok?! I'm talented in photoshop, breaking eggs with no loose shell bits and plucking out large pieces of dandruff with my delicate fingers, does it mean Adele must be jealous of my talents?! NO RIGHT?

Anyway, enough of that sore topic!!

Today I wanna talk about myself!! ME ME ME ME ME!!

I cut my butt-length hair!!

Since a zillion years ago I've always wanted to have hair that's uber long. So I begin to not ever cut my hair... For about 4 years I never once even trimmed the ends or even allowed any hairstylists to go near me with a pair of scissors. I do cut my fringe, but even my fringe is cut by myself!!

Then one fine day I sat down on the toilet bowl and realised... In between my ass and the seat... is my hair. Not my ass hair, my head hair. I actually sat down on my fucking hair. I mean it's gross and all, but my point is that it's super long!

Having super long hair is a terror to maintain. Firstly, it's crazy tangled, combing is almost impossible, and so is brushing, unless you manually detangle the ends first. It takes up to 24 hours to thoroughly dry by itself. Conditioner is always running out. It keeps you so warm that if you are in Singapore without aircon, you almost always have to tie it up. Curling takes a thousand years. You accidentally whip people and they yell at you. It is super heavy and strenuous on the neck. You can't cuddle on the bed without it tangling in something.

And yet, I willingly, happily, tolerated all these because I always told myself... Don't cut! Maybe it will get longer and even prettier!! Maybe one day I can be the Guinness world record holder for longest bleached blonde hair! :D

Then... Kaykay dashed my dreams by telling me that not everybody can grow their hair till it reaches the ground. 

Everyone has a limit. For example, most people have hair that can grow for say, 4 years, before it drops off your scalp, so 4 years' length is the maximum you can have. Other hairs break. Just like your eyebrows cannot grow beyond a certain length, neither can the hairs on your head.

"I LIED"

And then I realised I have reached my personal maximum. That's it, it doesn't get better than this. I have had the same length for a year now. I've peaked.


And this is as good as it gets. I can never be that World Record Holder.

Doesn't matter, it's still pretty damn gorgeous.

As you all know I've been complaining about neckaches and arm pains since months ago. Till today it's still not solved. :( One day I decided maybe it's the freaking heavyass hair that is causing me pain, so I decided to cut it off. Afterall I've had really long hair for a long time now - it's time for a change!!

I wanted that loose, light, swinging hair feeling. No more tangles, no more super-heavy-during-washing hair! Fuck off split ends!!

So I went into my salon, Mosche, for the cut. Some pictures before it begin....

 Time to say goodbye!!


Well such long hair is kinda pointless since the ends can almost never be seen in photos...


My hairstylist was incredibly cavalier about cutting off my hair. She doesn't give two hoots that it has been a lifelong dream of mine to have really long hair or that I've grew it out for years... She cuts hair EVERYDAY!!

And to my surprise, I was quite nonchalant about it too. I mean, just a while ago before Kaykay dashed my dreams I still had nightmares about people cutting my hair short sneakily. And if you asked me a year ago whether I'd snip off half my hair length I'd be scandalised and yelling "NO WAY!"

I really thought I'd be sadder about this but I wasn't. It's scary how people can just change their minds like that, no? Loved my long hair so much... Suddenly super sure I didn't want it anymore. I can only pray Mike won't have the same reaction towards me in time to come.


There we go! Snip snip snip!! What's wrong with me? When my stylist was cutting I actually wanted her to go shorter and shorter....

p/s: My hair was so long that I had to cut it standing up.

To my surprise nobody else gave a shit that my hair is much shorter now except Cheesie, who said she couldn't believe I did it and that my previous hair was like a fairytale coz nobody else had hair that length (and healthy) when it's bleached. I told her Rapunzel probably had neckaches too and the fairytale is a lie!!


It is this length now...


Pink hair littering the floor...

And tadah....


Ok I know it's actually not even that dramatically different and it is not THAT short either. But it's so much shorter than before!


Took a photo when I got home after I also got my roots done...

And then craziness seized me.

I ran my fingers through my hair... Because I told my stylist that I wanted the ends to be straight, she didn't do much layering. Thus, my naturally super thick hair STILL felt extra heavy. Cutting off half my length did not give me that light, breezy feeling that I was expecting. This was NOT what I wanted!

So I took a pair of scissors and went into the bathtub and cut SHITLOADS of hair away, sorta layering the hair myself.

I cut and cut and cut till I was happy with the lightness. The tufts of hair I cut off I threw into the toilet bowl until the whole bowl was pink. The length remained almost the same, but it was so much lighter!! :D

Then I went to KL and Cheesie brought me to Number76style, her salon in KL. The hairstylist there told me I did a terrible job cutting my own hair (lol, I honestly thought I did not bad), and trimmed it better for me. They also did some amazing hair treatment so if you are from KL, give them a visit. :D


Yes so that's my hair length now! I was actually considering going shorter, like shoulder or shorter... But Qiuqiu and Cheesie both told me to not be impulsive. Oh well.

Ok abruptly ending here about my hair. Also, it didn't fix the neckache although I must say I don't feel quite as strained now. Think I'm gonna go for an MRI.


Next.....

What is this?



Finally got the keys to my own fucking house!!!


The whole house-hunting process I didn't want to blog or tweet too much about it because I was afraid I will jinx it somehow. But now the papers are signed and the old owners have moved out and I HAVE THE KEYS!! It's mine!! Well Mike's too, but still, half is mine!!

(Mike says it technically belongs to the bank but ignore him, he is a spoilsport.)




We bought an executive apartment in Lorong Ah Soo (I find the name hilarious!) for about $523k with a cash above valuation of $35k.

(I did not choose the place so I can add a vote to the Aljunied GRC wtf, just a coincidence)

Not gonna show pictures of the house because it is ugly as hell. The previous owners were an old couple who decided to move into a smaller apartment because their kids didn't live with them anymore, and their furniture were all very old... They didn't even have kitchen cabinets! So I need extensive renovation! I am so excited!!

I already found an interior designer + contractor and he is awesome!! He gave many ideas on how to improve the house and here's what we decided for all the space we've got:




Wooot!! Obviously those marked in pink are the areas I'm most excited about... My princess room (aka an office) and Mike and I will both have our own toilets!

UPDATED: Some of you have asked about the entrance to the Princess Room. It's gonna be at the corridor, but I was too lazy to draw a door there! I'm surprised you guys even noticed lol 

I've always wanted my own toilet so I can like have a pink bathtub and all. Plus I'm usurping the huge storeroom space for my walk-in wardrobe!! The excess storeroom crap can all be put in the guest room's wardrobe.:P

My ID Wayne already started looking for sponsors for me and so did Huiwen, my manager from Nuffnang. They are both so awesome and hardworking I'm gonna cry wtf coz some of the things we already found sponsors!!


But yes I'm still looking for RENOVATION SPONSORS!!!!!

So if you are interested or if you know a friend who provides the following, please let me know!! Of course I'd trade blog publicity for their services and goods. Their brands will also be featured on Guide to Life! :D

FAT

p/s: UPDATED BELOW!

Oh you guys are gonna fucking hate this blog entry alright but I don't care.

So, I'm gonna be talking about Adele and her fats, which I have already bitched about on twitter because of the recent Karl Lagerfeld controversy, but someone told me to blog about it so I shall. With 140 characters limiting you it is not that easy to broach a taboo topic like that and fully explain your views.

But first, a disclaimer. Don't get so fucking sensitive - nobody hates fat people, ok?

I mean in any first world society, everyone is bound to have a relative or a friend who is overweight. It is IMPOSSIBLE to sum it all up and say "XX hates fat people!" when hello? My grandma is fat. Do I hate her? No, she took care of me when I was a child and I fucking love her, fats and all.

And I do have friends who are fat. Is it ok if I use the word fat? I'm gonna use it because "overweight" is way too long to type repeatedly. So yes, nobody hates all fat people, because why? Why should anyone's weight bother me? Unless they steal all my food it becomes an issue but otherwise it's not my problem.

There are plenty of fat and well-balanced (I mean mentally) individuals out there who have accepted their weight and have other priorities in life beside bothering about whether they can fit into a size S. Case in point: Moms who just gave birth and said "fuck it" to the scales. They need to eat in order to provide breast milk for their children. They have no time for the gym to lose pregnancy weight. If anyone says they are fat, they smile and say "Who cares about me? Look at my baby, isn't he beautiful?"

These people don't let their weight make them bitter and disgruntled. It is your life, if you decide weight is just a number, then live your life happily gobbling down Krispy Kremes, nobody cares.

But what I FUCKING CANNOT STAND...


ARE FATTIES WHO HATE ON PEOPLE WHO ARE SKINNY.


As if the rest of us who care about our looks are shallow, miserable assholes who are worth nothing. You have YOUR priorities and I have mine - let me be vain and superficial in peace and I'd let you be fat and oily in peace, OK?! Quid pro quo!




Adele is exactly one of these hypocritical cunts and I really, really cannot stand her.

It is enough that a lot of fat people, in order to feel empowered about their weight and justify their laziness, decide to blame and hate on everyone else of a normal weight. We hear things that "Skinny bitch with no boobs and ass", "Real women have curves" and "she's going to the loo again? Must be to puke" jokes over and over again. We laugh at girls who eat salads.

On 9gag I constantly see them put a picture of a badly taken paparazzi shot of a supermodel at a beach looking a little too skinny, and compare it to a studio shot of a photoshopped, made up, plus-size model and the caption? "This is sexy (the fat one), this is SHIT (the supermodel)." The men say statements like "We love real women who will eat a cheeseburger."

No. Ineligible men love woman who have low self-worth because these are the only girls who will look at them. Girls who work hard for their appearance want rewards for it in the form of dating eligible men and they KNOW what they are worth. They won't give 9gag losers the time of day, so what do the losers do? Sour grapes of course. Have you ever seen a rich handsome man say "I'd prefer a fat chick who never dresses up and doesn't put makeup, over supermodels."? Have you? NO.

But yet all these "It's better to be curvy (read: fat) than to be skinny" sentiments are popping up everywhere.

It's spreading everywhere, like a disease.


I'm sorry, since when is having zero self control supposed to be something to be proud of?!

What, so skinny people have in easier in life - does that mean you can insult them all the time? What do you want? Would you like everyone to also overindulge in food and never exercise again to prove to you that looks are not important, character is? Shall we burn all treadmills?

It is basic human nature to hate on people who work hard.

In school, we hate on nerds who study hard for their exams. When the results come out and you fail college because you were out partying while the nerd goes on to become a lawyer, you yell and say the system is fucked up! It should not be the hardworking who can get better results but the naturally brilliant! Why, if both you and that nerd BOTH didn't study, you bet you'd get better results than him! SCREW THE SYSTEM, BILL GATES NEVER GRADUATED!!

And then later on in life you like a cute boy but he chooses a girl prettier than you, slimmer than you. She works out at the gym, watches her diet and she's got plastic surgery and wears makeup and pretty clothes all the time.

What do you do? Instead of upping your game you bitch and moan, complaining that the girl cheated her way up the looks hierarchy. Stupid girl must spend all her time dwelling on her looks and must have no personality at all!

Why should men care about looks? What a shallow man, you say, conveniently forgetting you also liked him because of his looks.

Shouldn't they care about character, like in that Taylor Swift song? Can't he see you are his soulmate? If she didn't work out or had plastic surgery you bet you are even better-looking than her!!

Ah but here's the thing... She did work out and she did get surgery.

Surprise!! Other people are more hardworking than you! Instead of blaming the system, GET OFF YOUR LAZY ASS AND DO SOMETHING.What is stopping you?

Are you afraid that if you studied hard your results are only mediocre? Are you afraid that after plastic surgery and losing weight you are still ugly and your dream boy still doesn't like you? So afraid and insecure that you'd rather never have tried hard before, than to try hard and fail? Well then fuck you, you have no rights to insult others who had the courage to try.

Back to Adele. I hate her because she is making this disgusting attitude more prominent than ever.

Let's look at some of her quotes:



It is disgusting how her quotes are being idolised by so many. People are all praising her, saying how BRAVE she is to dare to be different from the cookie cutter pretty stars we see nowadays, how she speaks out for fat acceptance, and how her music is not about looks but about, well, music.

Excuse me but WHAT THE FUCK HAS GOOD MUSIC GOT TO DO WITH LOOKS?

Is she trying to say that somehow, if she were to show her boobs and her bum now (no thanks) that immediately her music will become a pile of shit?

If you are good, you are good. WHAT IS THIS CRAP? So what if Lady Gaga or Katy Perry makes music for 'eyes'?

Go do your own thing if you wish to be an unattractive singer - NO NEED TO INSULT OTHERS AND JUSTIFY YOURSELF! You are already making so much money and loved by so many, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT, ADELE?!

Adele's Asian incarnate

I really hate that she is always putting down other singers, prancing on her lofty high horse, like she is so much better.

There are people who idolise singers for their entire package including looks and styling, there are people who idolise singers just for good music - DON'T BLAME THE GAME ADELE, SUCH IS LIFE! Some people like looking at pretty things!

Talk about condescending... You think you are the first popular singer who is fat? THINK AGAIN! There were plenty before you, no need to speak as if you brought about a whole revolution! I don't know that much about English pop but Mandopop Singer Ocean Ou became popular when he never even showed his face. He was just a cartoon! And I don't hear him go on and on about how Andy Lau is ruining the industry by making music for "eyes". *roll eyes*

Ok you may think I'm over-reacting and over-inferring from that simple quote but here is more, and they prove my point on what a hypocritical, condescending, judgmental, insecure asshole she is:


WHAT THE FUCK IS SHE GOING ON ABOUT FOR FUCK'S SAKE?!

Did anyone ask her to choose between weighing a ton and doing an amazing album or be skinny and do a shit album?

No, people were asking her to choose between weighing a ton and doing an amazing album OR weigh normal and do an amazing album - because taking care of your diet DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR TALENT OR ABILITY TO MAKE AN AMAZING ALBUM!

And I'm not even going to talk about that last sentence about how she aims to NEVER be skinny in life because that's just fucking illogical and rude to everyone who is skinny. Ridiculous!! I don't even... URGH!

Here is more!!!


"I’ve never seen magazine covers or music videos and been like ‘I need to look like that to be a success.’ I don’t want to be some skinny mini with my tits out. I really don’t want to do it and I don’t want people confusing what it is that I’m about."

HYPOCRITE HYPOCRITE HYPOCRITE.

Let's tackle the elephant in the room with every photo of her you saw so far, ok?

What do you see?


YES, SHE WEARS A TON OF MAKEUP.

If she truly doesn't feel like looks or even a vague amount of sex appeal is necessary for success, why is she always covering her face up with shitloads of foundation, carefully applied eyeliner and false lashes that reach up to the heavens?

How many hours a day does she spend carefully teasing that bouffant on her hair so that it looks exactly 60s but not 'winehouse'? She doesn't care about looks, only music? Are you kidding me?

Why not just sing in concerts wearing PJs, Adele? Coz you are CONFUSING me now with your hypocrisy. Or better yet, why not just sing behind a curtain or inside a potato sack?

Don't bullshit us Adele - you, like the rest of the famewhoring girls, want to just be pretty as well. It is just that

1) You are too fucking lazy and greedy and

2) the fat chicks everywhere are giving you so much praise for your "courage" and alternative views that you are just simply basking in it all, exploiting your "commonness" in exchange for popularity from people who feel they can identify with you.





Wow... So powerful! I feel like the entire female population just came collectively via our clits and gspots from her proud feminist statement.

Finally! A woman who is fat and says she represents the majority of us girls who are insecure about our weight!!

She even gives a middle finger to girls who want to be on magazine covers!!

Ready or not here comes the Hypocrite Of The Year!!!!!!!!!!!!

TADAH!!!!!!!! 


Homegirl says in so many quotes that she never cares to be on magazines covers, and here she is, eating, eating, eating, eating her words. NO WONDER SHE IS FAT!!

Does this look like the majority of girls to you? What now Adele, are we supposed to think your full lips, sharp nose, pretty eyes, and thick hair are totally normal? Way to make us feel secure, honey!

If she was so against mainstream media celebrating impossible standards of beauty, what the fuck is she doing on Vogue, looking like just any other celebrity?

You want to prove a point, Adele? Go on Vogue and be the cover girl with no makeup and a bikini showing off all your lovehandles and cellulite, please. THEN you can say you are proud of how you look like, ok?

If not, just STFU!!!!!!!!

And yes, about Karl Lagerfeld. I initially got over this whole Adele's-a-hypocritical-bitch thing but everyone on my twitter was insulting him for saying the following quote:


"The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice."

What? What did he say wrongly??? Isn't she too fat?

And it's not as if he's talking about Gisele Bundchen being too fat. Adele IS overweight, and unhealthily so. What wrong with calling a spade a spade?! And taking the full quote into context, he was actually saying that she is his favourite singer. It was 90% praise, 10% slightly insulting truth.

And what happens?

Everyone starts to insult him, saying he is a wrinkled orange old ass etc, hope he falls down on a spike and dies. Excuse me but you all are fucking hypocrites now, aren't you? So Lagerfeld cannot comment on Adele's looks but YOU can comment on his looks? FUCK OFF. How dare you be so morally self righteous? Lagerfeld's statement wasn't meant to be malicious, YOURS is.

I cannot understand why anytime anyone dares to say someone is fat, even if it is a neutral statement or with good intentions, all the fatties all the world unit in anger and lash out like mad. And they always reply the same things.

1) I can always lose my weight but you'd always remain (insert insult, mostly ugly or short in my case).

Erm but fact is you DIDN'T lost your weight. Once you do, instead of having people say you are fat, you will be praised and people will all say you are a determined, hardworking and strong willed individual. See, wouldn't that be nice?

Also, I am stating something that you entirely brought upon yourself whereas you are insulting something I am born with and cannot change. Is that fair?


2) LOOKS ARE NOT EVERYTHING ASSHOLE

No, looks are not everything. But they do affect A LOT of things and is undisputedly important in this world.

Have you noticed this? The only people in this world who always have people ask them to lose weight are those with good-looking faces. That's why people who care ask them to lose the weight because they have the potential to look gorgeous. Those who have ugly faces and are fat are generally left alone to do whatever they want.

(Except the morbidly obese, who are advised to lose weight for health reasons)



People take this "You are fat" thing WAY too seriously.

Case in point, check out this article presumably a fattie wrote about Gywneth Paltrow hating on fat people.

I found it when I was finding Adele quotes - and of course the author is a big fan of Adele's fat power movement. *rolls eyes*

If you don't wish to read the article I'd sum it up here.

Basically, a celebrity host called Ross Matthew is good friends with Gywneth Paltrow. He was putting on weight and when he saw Paltrow, she pointed at his tummy and said "What's going on here? I love you, get it together!"

That motivated him to lose 50 pounds so now he is really healthy and happy.

What a sweet story, right? Considering that Gywneth is close friends him, she only wanted the best for him and gave him tough love. It made him a better person and now he is healthy and happy but ALL THE FATTIES ARE NOT!
 
How dare Gywneth be so fucking rude? Here's what the author responded:

"The best way to respond (to someone saying you gained weight like Gywneth did) is to attack, letting your full-on CUNT rage: "Yeah, I have been eating too much fried chicken lately. I'm starting to look like the chick your boyfriend is boning behind your back. That must suck, to feel like you're too skinny and flat-chested to keep a man interested."

If someone (Goop) had come up to me, pointed at my stomach and said “What’s going on here? I love you. Get it together,” I would have started crying, and then punched her in face.

You just don’t say that crap to people, honestly. I’m a raging bitch, and even I think that’s wrong. I mean, sure, maybe it was the “wakeup call” Ross needed to get healthier (although in my opinion, he really wasn’t all that heavy to begin with), but Gwyneth didn’t say it to him because she wants him to have a better life. She said it to him because his weight offended her deeply, as all of our peasanty lifestyles offend her."

WHAT THE FUCK MAN!! Talk about taking things out of context and being easily angered!!!!!!!

Is it fair that fat people can say things like that Gywneth Paltrow is too skinny and flat chested to keep a man interested? Or to punch her for pointing out that you put on weight? So ridiculous!

And the worst part is that she presumed Gywneth only had evil intentions. No, asshole, someone with evil intentions would say "OMG you gained so much weight you look like a pig that is so fat no other pigs would fuck it." , not "I love you, get it together."

I'm gonna conclude this super long blog entry by saying that fat people need to stop being so fucking sensitive. Sure, a lot of people use the F word to insult you. Remember you brought your own weight upon yourself, you have nobody to blame but yourself and mostly importantly, you have the ability to stop it anytime.

No, I am not saying it is alright for skinny people to insult fat people. It is NOT alright. And it is NOT easy to lose weight. It is unfair, and it is cruel.

But I'm just saying, people won't stop using your weight as ammo against you because it's the easiest way to attack anyone. The only way you can stop it is to actually lose weight.

But keep in mind, a lot of times, people asking you to lose weight just either care about your health or think that your weight is stopping you from getting the most out of life. Don't lash out like a hyena just out of instinct. They don't mean to be malicious.

If you wish to remain fat and is happy being fat, then don't bother about what people say. If you are NOT happy being fat, please do something about it instead of hating on the fact that society in general favour slim and healthy people. This is never going to change, not unless suddenly slim people cannot conceive and only fat people can. It's against nature's will to be attracted to the obese.

Also, fuck Adele. What a cunt.

p/s: My weight is irrelevant but yes, call me fat if you wish, I'm ok with that!


UPDATE: Newest issue of Vogue March 2012 is out!!


Oh honey, thanks so much for proving me right. Here you are looking like a skinny mini with your tits out.

Also, I love how all the dumbfuck haters are commenting about MY weight and how I also put on a ton of makeup (therefore I'm also a hypocrite!). And then they say I am jealous of Adele coz she has talent and I have none, or that I'm just jealous she is more famous than me. Erm........


How is MY weight, appearance, fame or talent relevant to this blog entry?!?!? Yes I'm neither fat nor skinny, but my weight has nothing to do with my opinions.

And one last point. I notice a lot of you people have taken offense at my statement about how fat people are responsible for their own weight and have the ability to lose it. You guys are saying it's genetics, it's a disease, etc. Well, I beg to differ. I believe that with determination, ANYONE can look slim or at least healthy. Sure, it's harder for some people.

But those who say it's impossible are just making convenient excuses. If obesity is something that you cannot change, why do we not ever see fat poverty-stricken African kids? Or in Singapore, why do we not see fat bangala construction workers? I do believe that there are people who have bulky body types like Kenny Sia who always runs marathons and works out but still looks stocky. However, these people look fit with muscles, so nobody will say they are fat. You don't have to agree with me, but that's what I believe.

I love Juicy Skin!

Advertorial


Tell you all something super stupid ok? The reason why the above pic is so teal themed is because I thought I wanted to start this advert by saying "I feel like a mermaid because I'm so hydrated" then I realised it is very lame LOLOL.

So that's just a picture where I happen to be wearing blue-green stuff.

Today I'd be reviewing a new line of skincare from Za!!

I already love it before using it because...



The products are the most gorgeous shade of pearly milky pink! :D Would look so good on any vanity.

Say hello to Za's new skincare range - Za Total Hydration!

This range is specially formulated for ladies in their 20s (which, ahem, includes me even though I'm almost out of there).

Actually I remember when I was a teenager and I started to get zits, my mom told me to start using facial cleansers, and she also bought me a milk moisturizer.

When I was younger I never ever felt the need to moisturize, mostly coz I didn't sleep with the aircon on. My face was just super oily all the time - I could soak up 1 and a half of those rubbery facial blotters! As such, when I put on oil based moisturizers, the oiliness actually became worse and made me grow more zits. I swore never to use moisturizers again.

Of course as I grew older my skin got drier and drier and I had to eat my words. In fact, nowadays if i don't moisturize straightaway after a shower, my skin actually HURTS. I'm not sure if this is a common thing but thanks a lot skin, way to remind me that I'm old!!

My point is, younger people have different skin, and they should be using something age appropriate and not just whatever mom's using. :)

Younger girls face certain problems...


You may think being youthful mean you can't have dry skin.... Don't be mistaken like I was, just because your skin is oily doesn't mean it isn't dry!

In fact, the solution to excession sebum and enlarged pores is to MOISTURIZE!

But what sort of moisturizer? That's the question.

May I suggest you try the Za Total Hydration range's star product?

 The Amino Mineral Gel!

The key ingredients in the range - amino mineral gel, vitamin b derivative, prism enhancer, sebum holding powder, and hyaluronic acid!

I love this gel and I'd recommend it especially to young ladies!

This provides moisture fix in 10 seconds flat!

Late for work in the mornings? NO PROBLEM!

And it's super lightweight. The texture is velvety and absorbs very easily, leaving no oily residue.

Remember how I said I hated my milk moisturizer when I was younger? I didn't like the oily, sticky feeling on my face after application! This gel leaves no residue and is totally smooth after application. It doesn't leave your face looking shiny/oily either.

The texture

I never liked putting heavy creams on my face before I apply makeup because I feel it cakes up my foundation. This gel won't! You practically cannot feel anything on your face except that it won't be dry anymore. Also solves problems such as conspicuous pores!

The packaging is also awesomesauce. No stupid tubs and it's so flat and light you can just throw it into your bag for midday hydrating sessions!

PLUS IT SMELLS SUPER NICE AND ONLY COSTS $10.90!

Another product I like in the range is the Energy Mist.


Especially recommended for office ladies because office aircons are always so cold and so bad for your skin!! But when you have makeup on, how do you hydrate?

With a mist. :D


I never used to like mists because I always thought it would ruin my makeup. The Za girls urged me to give it a try, saying it won't, so I did. Really doesn't affect makeup lol... The nozzle is specially created to give a very very fine mist so you won't get big water droplets on your face.

Skin feels so nice afterwards!

You don't only have to use it after makeup. Even with a fresh face, you can spray on to moisturize if you are in a rush or if your hands are dirty!

The mist refreshes tired skin, absorbs greasiness and hydrates - as a bonus it makes you smell nice too! Best used after a trip to the smoke-filled hawker centre for lunch.

Also useful for the ladies in their 20s...

The Blemish Care Essence!

Comes in handy if you get occasional pimples.

Fight zits! This Essence prevents recurring blemishes and sooths your skin to prevent inflammation. It dries up your zits but not your skin! Also exfoliates excess dead skin cells and moisturizes at the same time! At $9.90, worth it to give it a try if you have acne.



If like me, you are at the wrong end of the 20s or your skin is naturally just very dry, a cream moisturizer would work better for you.

You can try the Deep Moist Cream!


With the same awesome packaging as the Amino Mineral Gel, this moisturizer nourishes the skin intensely while absorbing excess sebum. Same price too at $10.90. It would be awesome for flights because there is like zero moisture in the air in airplanes. -_-



I love the Foamy Cleanser too! It leaves the skin with a very clean feeling without that squeaky dryness.

It also smells very sweet! I'm very partial to products that smell nice. :p


If you have tried the Amino Mineral Gel and liked it, you can also invest in the Milky Moisturizer!


I find it quite similar to the Amino Mineral Gel except it's a wee bit heavier and more suitable for night use. Comes in a big bottle so it will last you a LONG time! Best part? Not in a tub either! :D

Another two great products are the Pore Care Essence that instantly reduces the appearances of big pores and Moist Lucent Toner that replenishes and retains abundant moisture on the skin. The products are all very reasonably priced, so you can just give them a try.





I'm a happy girl with my Za!



Want to know more? Check out Za's facebook page here:



And guess what?

If you purchase the Amino Mineral Gel you can also get a 30ml cleanser for FREE!!!!!!!!!



Ending this post with a picture of me and Igloo. She's lucky she doesn't need to be moisturized! Have fun shopping! :D
