My Double Eyelid Surgery with Beverly Wilshire

Image
Advertorial If you follow me on snapchat (id: Thexiaxue) you would know that about a month ago I did my double eyelid surgery! Here is the blog post about my latest plastic surgery journey! As I mentioned on my Dollywink post, I have double eyelids but they are tapered and low. So I always put on eyelid tape whenever I have makeup on. You can see the difference with tape and without. I've actually gone through eyelid surgery before in 2010 - you can see the post here . In 2010, I did the sewing of eyelids** and the cutting of the outer corner of my eyes. That surgery was terrible. Like so so so so bad. The surgeon was a China guy who can't even speak English. It was extremely painful. I had a shot of LA under my eyes that felt like it pierced into my eyeballs and what's worse is that I knew I had to go through it again for my other fucking eye. Pain scale 9/10. After the surgery, I realised that both my eyeballs suffered trauma and both my eye whites became a

3M Hot, Cold and Room Temperature Filtered Water Dispenser Review

Advertorial Our human body is 60% made up of water. We should drink 8 big glasses of water everyday to replenish our fluids, and drinking enough water makes us healthier, more beautiful, and even less likely to fall sick! So it is pretty obvious that water is important to us... But water is just water, isn't it? Unlike teas or sweetened drinks, there aren't much choices when it comes to water. The water we drink at home is just... plain water. I'll be honest. I know most people don't do this, but all my life I've drank my water directly from the tap! I know it's safe-ish because I never fell ill from drinking tap water, but I never did any research on whether it's good to do that or not. When I was told 3M was giving me a water dispenser, I wasn't very impressed. I thought it was just a filter I had to attach to my tap or some troublesome jug I had to keep refilling. The day of installation came: I led the installation guy into my

Dolly Wink Big Eye Make

Advertorial So this is how my typical daily makeup looks like: Chio right hahahahaha OK, here's the startling difference with only one side of eye makeup done: . . . . . . TADAH! I didn't photoshop the eye makeup at all! Want to know how to do big eye makeup? The Japanese look to dramatically enlarge their eyes and sometimes they use pretty extreme makeup that some people might find too... exaggerated for daily wear. It's a bit weird to go work/school with getai makeup! The key should be to enlarge your eyes, but in a more subtle and natural way. Want to know how I did it? Here are the steps! Let's start! Step 1: Double eyelid tape!! Knowing your own eye shape is important. I was born with single eyelids and since I was young, all the adults would say it's a pity that I didn't get double eyelids when both my parents had them. Hahaha in Singapore during my parents' era got no sense of what is the politically co

igloo left me

Image
Igloo just passed away yesterday early morning. :'( In 2 months' time he would have been 5 years old. Rabbits usually live from 5-12 years but lops usually get 8-10. He had left me before he was meant to. Yesterday in the wee hours of the morning at 3am I was in the living room watching TV and he was still hopping around and playing with his toy ball, the blue one in the picture. That ball had a bell in it so he likes to push it around. This morning at 9am he was found exactly like in the picture... His body was already hard. 😭 Even his usual soft floppy ears are hard. 😭😭😭 My heart broke when I felt him like that... When Ellen told me she woke up to find igloo dead, part of me chose not to believe her and wanted to nudge him awake. But he wasn't his usual floppy, soft self. He was rigid. Even lightest touch confirmed the nightmare; I didn't have to nudge after all. I feel overwhelmed with guilt. Sadness too definitely, and a huge sense of loss. But a lot of guilt. I

SG50 Fishcake scam

Image
Some time ago, my secondary school friend Randall (we call him Ghim, and you might have heard me mention him many times before in ancient blog posts), told us excitedly that he is creating a special SG50 fishcake. He is the Business Development Manager for BoBo. To my surprise, the fishcake is now going viral! Fishcake looks like this. There are many articles written about the fishcake, and all are negative. ( Mothership 1 ) ( Mothership 2 ) ( Stomp ) ( Mrbrown ) ( Hardwarezone ) Here are some examples. There are actually more but lazy to link everything lah. Basically, here are the things people felt unhappy about: 1) How can BoBo charge the same price for fishcake with the "50" cut out? This is cheating customers' money with a gimmick. 2) Where does the cut away "50" go to? Wasting food! 3) Stop it with the everything SG50! So irritating! Since Randall is my friend, I had the privilege of asking him to address all these issue
