Do you prefer length or thickness?


Hahaha! When it comes to this all-important question, us girls always reply... Why can't I have both?

Anyway, I have neither in this photo!!:

Yes, I am talking about lashes!!

If you think I look weird here it's coz I don't have my usual lash enhancements on! Look super different right?

And if you are a fan of, you'd perhaps have seen the latest
Chick Vs Chick challenge where Kaykay and I compete to see who can get more people to try on Maybelline's new Long Extreme Stiletto mascara! (I won btw muahahaha)

 Why stiletto? Coz just like what stilettos can do for your legs, Maybelline's Long Extreme Stiletto mascara can do for your lashes!

Your end effect is long, tapered and pointy lashes, just like a stiletto heel!

When I heard that I had to do a mascara challenge, I was a little worried coz if the product is not very good then I'd look so super ugly with stumpy little lashes!!

But I had nothing to worry about. BEHOLD!!

Now that I've got your attention...

Crazy long and thick!!! No photoshop on the lashes! Please erase memory of the first pic of me with no (enhanced) lashes thanks.

After all, Maybelline IS the #1 mascara brand in Singapore, so it lives up to its popularity!

In fact, after I put on my make-up, I was so pleased I took super a lot of camwhoring shots... :D

I can't even remember the last time I had confidence to just put mascara on and no falsies to snap shots. And it feels extra chio coz it seems like I'm one of those lucky girls with ridiculous camel lashes. But actually I'm not it's just the mascara LOL!

If you are wondering how come it works so well, it's coz of this:

Check it out! The brush has little fibres in it!
The fibres are the secret to length-enhancing mascaras. :D

And best of all it's all-in-one so don't need to use one tube of fibre and one tube of mascara! Troublesome max.

Here are two pics of girls we asked to try on the mascara on the streets:

And this is just Kaykay and I anyhowly quickly giving just 1 or 2 coats coz we were rushing to win! If you want super long and super thick lashes can just keep on applying until you go mad.

Not only does the Long Extreme Stiletto mascara visibly lengthen lashes by more than 50%, it also contains Pro Vitamin B5 for shiny and smooth lashes! Waterproof and smudgeproof means you don't have to worry about wearing it for long periods of time and having ruined make-up. :)

So you can camwhore...

And camwhore...

And camwhore...

And camwhore... ALL DAY LONG!!!!!!!!!

If you use mascara, you should definitely give Maybelline's Long Extreme Stiletto mascara a try.

Coz it's also super affordable at $18.90 
and available at Watsons and at most places that sell make-up! :D

Invisalign Update!

Short post today! I wanna show you all my TEETH!!!!!!!

As you guys should know I started on invisalign a few months ago! (Link here)

Invisalign works just like braces but I've heard many people say they don't think it works as well as traditional braces would. Well, who better to show you than me!!!

My lower teeth are pretty crooked and my upper teeth are already straight. However, the upper row forms an overbite and protudes out too much.

Here are some photos of my lower teeth I took over the past few months!

First pic is the original state of my teeth:


Just looking at this makes me want to cry!!!!!! My bottom row is so super PERFECTLY straight!!!!

And the best part??

Wait for it...


No kidding!

If you don't believe me you can go check my twitter timeline coz I recorded everything down there!

I used to think that the best thing about invisalign is that it is transparent.

But that's not the best thing! The best thing is that YOU can control how fast you want your teeth-moving to be!

Ok I'm sure my dentist is shaking his head now at this but I read on the internet that some other invisalign clients, instead of changing their aligners every 14 days, they changed it after 10 days.


So I got clever and started to change it after 10 days. In fact, for one of the aligners I changed it after 7 days!

Erm I felt that I could be a smartass because for day 1, 2 and perhaps 3 the aligners feel tight, but after that it becomes almost loose! Not moving I keep the aligner there for what??

But I admitted it to my dentist and he said I shouldn't do that because you must give proper time to the teeth to move and if you move it too fast it will DIE or something and will forever not be able to be moved -_- stupid teeth so dramatic for what... must die meh?

However, he also said that 10 days is fine if you are very compliant (ie wearing the aligners for more than 22 hours a day, which I do). He said 10 days is bare minimum so ok lor I change once every 10 days. *grumble*

But I think invisalign and my dentist bluff one!!! Coz they scared your teeth die/don't get straight and they get into trouble LOL

Of course if you see that your teeth hurts a lot or is not moving correctly you should do it for 14 days lah please don't sue me if all your teeth die wtf.

SO YES! I am done with my lower teeth's aligners!!!!!

Happy max! I am so much more confident now while speaking during filming and doing camwhoring poses that show the lower teeth! NO NEED TO PHOTOSHOP!!

Invisalign has been a breeze for me so far. Yes, it does hurt during day 1 of aligner-changing but I like that kinda pain leh!! It means my teeth are moving so that's fine by me! :D

And also if you realised from the timeline, my teeth are now A LOT whiter! My oral hygiene has never been very bad (brush twice, maybe thrice a day, rarely ever floss) but it has never been particularly good either.

Now with invisalign I feel super icky if I don't brush and floss after every meal. And I've become a regular flosser coz I realised that there are A LOT of food stuck in between teeth! And when you floss they all fly out and hit the mirror wtf super gross -_- I can't believe I used to not floss regularly.

So flossing maybe twice a day and brushing AT LEAST 5 times a day. How to not have super clean and sparkling teeth??

Ugly photo of me showing off my newly straight teeth:

Wearing aligners. It looks the same without aligners

Now I just have another perhaps 3 or 4 months to go with my upper row's aligners!!

I am hoping it will expand my smile to show 8 teeth (now shows 6) and stop my ape-like mouth!!!

After that I am gonna try to convince my dentist to do a gum reduction surgery for me!! It is apparently very easily done with laser and he said it's not painful.

I can't wait!!! I want fucking PERFECT teeth! Like Katy Perry's!!

Shift quickly stupid teeth!!

Want Invisalign too?? 

My dentist is from Orchard Scotts Dental

Give them a call at 67329939 if you have any questions. Don't ask me, ask them please!


Oh I remembered something I wanted to blog about regarding teeth!!!!!!!

It's a horrible conspiracy theory!!

I know at least like 10 people (and these are personal friends ok) who have done braces before and now their teeth are still horribly crooked. How can it be? Coz they stopped wearing their retainers!

And some of them even did braces a second time to fix the problem again. Wtf... Already braces are so expensive and to do it again is another few thousand dollars.

I asked them why they stopped wearing the retainers. Most of them is due to laziness but also a lot of people have stated that their dentist told them they only have to wear retainers for - I heard a variety of answers - 1 year, 5 years, till they hit 26 etc.

Why their dentists lie like this?

Thus, nobody knows that even after you fix your teeth, YOUR TEETH WILL SHIFT BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL CROOKED WAYS. They can't wait to waste your hard-earned money, those nasty things! Even after 10 years of wearing your retainers!

And the correct answer for maintaining straight teeth? You have to wear retainers for the REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Not in the day but at night when you sleep you have to keep them in!

Gillian is the only person I know who still wears her retainers after she did her teeth in her teens (she is now 30). She told me that sometimes she stops wearing her retainers for a few days and when she puts them back in they are super tight! Then she gets mad pissed off coz she has been wearing retainers for so many years and the teeth are still not staying put. Haha I think she should be happy that she doesn't have to spend another few thousand dollars to straighten again lor.

Back to the conspiracy theory. I think the dentists all bluff you don't have to wear retainers for life because they are hoping you become a return client!!! Correct or not??

What did YOUR dentist say regarding how long you have to wear your retainers for? Are your teeth crooked again after you did braces? Tell me!! I wanna know how many of you got cheated!!!!!!

UPDATE: Regarding retainers for Invisalign clients. After my Invisalign treatment is done, I have to wear the last aligner tray for another 6 months (they hardly inconvenience me and are invisible so that's ok.) Then thereafter I have to wear retainers every night for the rest of my life, just like how people with braces have to! It's just a sacrifice you have to make for straight teeth!

Ohayo gozaimasu! Konnichiwa! Konbanwa!

Ok that's good morning and good afternoon and good evening for anyone who doesn't know those Japanese words!!

I just did an interview for NHK (which is Japan's national boardcasting network) and it's all about Gyaru fashion!

According to Cheesie "gyaru" simply means "gal" and all the trendy fashionable girls in Japan are called gyaru. (Wrong scold her not me lol) There are other branches of gyaru like hime (meaning princess, so they wear frilly stuff) and like yamanba (super tanned faces and white lips, which, for the life of me I cannot understand how it is the least bit attractive), etc.

I felt quite bad coz although I do love Japanese make up and Japanese fashion, I'm not hardcore like some other girls are. Like 7 layers of hair and eyelashes wtf. I feel like I'm cheating the Japanese audience!

But anyway the filming team came over to my place and they all kept saying I'm like 100% a real gyaru! I dunno whether they really think so or it's just the typical Japanese politeness!!

The show has two hosts - Maiko and Lai.

They are super cute and painfully enthusiastic about everything. Everything they also say "KAWAII!!!!!". LOL! And fucking chio max!!! What's with Japanese girls and their crazy small noses and ginormous eyes and perfect skin??!!!

Part of the show consists of us camwhoring on my daybed so here are the pics!!

Numbered for your commenting convenience!!

Two real Japanese girls and one fake

That's Maiko with the blue ribbon and Lai with the pink. Both hairbands are mine! They ransacked my accessories drawer and put them on. LOL

They are actually both magazine models FML I look so ugly next to them but nvm lao niang got PHOTOSHOP! :D

With Lai... I realised the girls love taking photos of faces being squashed together. It's great in theory for making your face look skinnier but horrid for photoshop coz cannot liquify!! Which explains why my face so fat in this pic.

And they were so in love with my camera set up they started to camwhore...

Check out Lai's boobs!

Why so chio! Jealous! Btw I never photoshop her nose in any picture
it's really this size wtf how is that humanly possible? And it's real!

"My eyes are up here"

Free boobage! Thank you come again.

Ok finish! 

Last photo is my favourite coz they said "let's make monkey faces" 
and we did and everyone burst out laughing!!

It was a fun filming session!

No individual photos of me coz very buay paiseh if I have guests over and sit down to snap my own photos wtf.

Sigh. I wonder why people always say I am trying to be Caucasian. Please, can't you tell I'm trying to be Japanese??? LOL... Want to say I'm ashamed of my race at least accurately accuse me of the race I'm trying to be.

Ok feel free to pile praises/criticise our faces.

UPDATE: Oh great now I'm receiving comments that Japanese girls are trying to look white so in wanting to look Japanese I am trying to look white. What's wrong with you? Why can't you enjoy pictures without making a race issue? I cannot be bothered to argue about this, so be warned - if you leave a comment that I (or Japanese girls in general) are self-hating bitches then your comment WILL be changed to "I am the chimpanzee that raped that frog in the mouth".

I don't like sex scenes

Ok I'm gonna do a patronising blog post because although I'm super sleepy, I refuse to sleep yet! I must fight my jet lag!

So erm I shall blog about how I don't like sex scenes in movies or tv shows.

And "sex scene" includes the prelude to sex ie passionate kissing and the hasty removal of clothes etc.

I used to like them. Sex scenes I mean... When I was a kid my mom or grandma would hastily cover my eyes whenever the actors on Channel 8 dramas would kiss or do naughty stuff.

So whenever I was free to watch them sucking each others' mouths while grandma's back's turned to the dishes, it was a little treat for me... Oh... so that's how she got pregnant. Coz he kissed her and they fell into the bed together!

And then when I was 19 or so I thought hey! I could try sneaking into the R rated movies! It'd be sooooooo cool! Wow! Naked people on the big screen!! So exciting!

And somewhere in between 19 to 26 it changed to "meh..." and now it's "Geez not another fucking sex scene. Why must ALL movies have at least one?"

No really... Why? Do people really enjoy watching kisses? I sure as hell don't, especially when it's some exciting plot ie we are about to find out who the murderer is and the two leads decide to get it on.

I just want the plot to go on and the mystery to be solved; conflict to be resolved. OK?

And as far as I'm concerned all kisses look the same to me!! Even the famed kiss in The Notebook, one of my favourite shows, I couldn't care less about. So it's in the rain and it symbolizes a sealing of their love. That's interesting only for 2 seconds, after that it's too long.

Bleah. Actually, it's not that bad in a picture.

And there are only 3 situations in which you can watch a sex scene in a show:

1) Watching a sex scene alone.

This has the consequence of either making you horny or bored. I don't like being bored. And if I feel horny, I feel like a loser pervert watching porn alone wtf.

2) Watching a sex scene with your partner.

If you are watching a sex scene with a date then great, perhaps it'd lead to sex for the first time between you two. Congratulations.

But if you are in a stable relationship, all you feel is that the show is giving your partner an unrealistic expection of how crazy awesome sex should be and how yours, in contrast, sucks.

Am I supposed to be smiling like that while giving a blowjob? Should I be wearing slutty bras, suspenders and heels to bed more often? How come he doesn't lick my toes? Yeah if I did the doggie style like that my belly hangs out like a pig's - how come hers can stay flat? Should I agree to a threesome? They seem to be enjoying it. OMG do all the other girls anal rim?

No thanks.

3) Watching a sex scene with anyone else.

I fucking HATE it when a sex scene pops up on shows especially when I'm watching it with family (on tv not in the cinema)!!!! Can you say AWKWARD??

What should I do?? Continue watching and be judged as a pervert? But mom's next to me... Pretend to use the phone? Jump up and to go the toilet? Comment on the girl's nipples and make a joke? What?

I suppose it's tolerable if you watch a sex scene with close friends who are all laughing at the actors' bodily imperfections but still! Interrupting the plot with unnecessary drivel!

I therefore conclude that sex scenes suck! I especially hate shows like True Blood or Tudors where it's like ALL about the sex. Geez! If I wanted to see people having sex I'd go watch porn instead!

Do you enjoy the kissing/sex scenes in movies?

p/s: HAHAHA Are there some of you who are reading this post with family and feeling awkward too? LOL FYL!!
