It's kinda difficult to blog over here in Dallas with my super laggy old laptop... Each step of photoshopping takes a few seconds! So I'm gonna just do a patronizing entry with one camwhoring shot done in the car: On Xmas day it's gonna be -2 degree Celsius! But with no chance of snow. Oh well! Still, over here in USA got a lot of Xmas ambiance!! Hope you guys have a M e r r y C h r i s t m a s with your family and friends! Except for haters. Hope haters all choke on a turkey bone. Tata~~

Female blogger dilemma

If you are anonymous - you must be a fat ugly loser in real life. If you show your identity and you look ugly - You should do plastic surgery. If you show your identity and you already did plastic surgery - you are fake and disgusting. If you are au-natural and pretty - you are still fake coz you put make-up, or must photoshop your pictures. If you are pretty and don't put make up - it's because you don't know how. Also, you look boring and pale. If you are pretty and put make up - you are superficial, insecure and shallow. Go save a whale. If you get popular - you are a famewhore. If you don't get popular - you are a nobody. If you get popular and earn money from being popular - you are a sell-out. If you get popular but don't earn money - you are stupid, and also, who you think you are, so bloody high and mighty? If you are single and not dating - something's wrong with you. If you are single and dating - you are a slut. If you are atta

Another way of curling your hair

Ok I just impromptu-ly did a shittyass hair tutorial. For the first time since like a year ago, I'm using a less-than-semi-pro camera's photos on this blog wtf. That's coz it is super difficult to snap photos of yourself doing your own hair!! Especially at 2am. So I had to use my shit webcam!! Ok lah better than nothing right? Anyway, by the end of this entry you'd learn how to (attempt to) get hair curls like these: Toldya my webcam's quality is shit. Anyway in case you are thinking - the answer is so easy... Just tong lah! You are wrong!! Tonging gives THIS effect and not the gentle wavy curls like the above photo. Ok a little back story about how this entry came about. Some time ago I received an email on my blackberry from this girl who was urging me to tell her how I did curls in some photos she attached. I sighed and thought it was all the photos with tonged hair (which are a lot more common on this blog that the aforementioned style), thereby r

You famous meh?

Just a scattering of random thoughts I've been having... Mostly I wanna push the ah beng entry down coz the first pic in that post is mad fugly. So. I went to this event where I was invited as a... star. Aka a celebrity. Digressing before I hit the issue I wanna talk about, I'd never call myself a celebrity/star/ming xing etc, ok? Except maybe in a joking manner. Just hearing it makes me cringe. Maybe because I'm not known in the traditional ways like being a singer or an actress, so even if I'm famous I'm a writer, and writers never call themselves celebrities. Plus I'm not trying to be humble, it is true that whilst I get some recognition from the public here and there, there are still shitloads of people who don't know me - and if you ownself call yourself famous and people go like "Who are you again?" it's wildly embarrassing. But I won't deny that I get recognised in Singapore almost everytime I go out, and I even got recognis

Ok the title is horribly vulgar if you can understand it and this is because I'm blogging about the gang issue in Singapore recently!! (Although it's kinda a little over already) So foreigners will probably not understand this colloquial entry. For those of you who don't know yet, Singapore, typically a very safe country, have had a couple of slashings lately. There was a fatality. And embarrassingly enough, it's done by teenaged gangsters, aka "Ah Bengs" . And they look like that: Random image I found via google images FTLs if they grew up already and stopped being Bengs. I can't believe gangs are making a comeback. I remember back in like 1997 or something when it was popular to be an Ah lian or Ah beng with our bleached Wella creme hair ($5.90 or something from Guardian, cheapest hair bleach ever and got 6% or 9% - gives you a tamarin monkey orange like the dude above), MCM bags, pointy combs, neon shirts, giordano yellow windbreakers, cross-ba

Camqueen of the Year Crowned

Advertorial Don't know if you guys saw this advert I did for the CamQueen of the Year contest? Now the contest is finally over and can I say WOW??????? It was definitely a smash hit among Singaporean youth!! The contest generated 4.5 MILLION page views and 400,000 votes cast via facebook!! CLICK HERE FOR THE CAMQUEEN WEBSITE Of course, it was a very interesting contest where contestants were urged to send in a photo of themselves before and after a makeover, so everyone was trying to prove that they can doll themselves up the best. And I must say among the contestants were many brave souls who put up their photos at... erm, well not their best. All for the prize of $5,000! After a super fierce competition, the final winner was crowned *drumroll*: And she is Tammy Tay!! In case you are wondering why there's only one photo and the "after" is mysteriously replaced by bottles of Vitamin Orange/Lemon, it is not coz after her makeover Tammy looks like

Rapunzel Press Junket

Ok this is my favourite song from the Rapunzel: A Tangled Tale soundtrack - sang by Mandy Moore! I embedded it so that you can play the song while you read this post so got more AMBIENCE!!! LOL So anyway here are the pics from when I went to California to watch Rapunzel way before you mere mortals (MUAHAHA) and to interview the stars!!! I am in no way paid to write this so it's not an advert. Flew SQ to LAX... I had a great flight there! Press stayed at Disneyland Hotel. It's nice! Day One... Michelle (Phan) came over and we were experimenting with the make-up + costumes etc for the next day's filming (watch video if you haven't already). Before we could finish gossiping I had to leave for the screening of the movie. I give it... 4.8 stars upon 5!!!!!!! Rapunzel is my favourite freaking princess!!! OK I might be a shade biased coz I like her long blonde hair. But she's funny and cheerful and just super cute and likeable. The 'prince', fo
