Broken

Through the midst of going about my daily activities and preparing for exams and what not, I feel completely empty... like there's a void that cannot be filled. Don't know how and why this void exist but then again, what is there to figure out?

I've not been happy for the longest time and the front that I've placed is slowly eating me up inside, through meeting different people, the realisation of how insignificant I am in this world is daunting. I don't want people to be worried or even take pity but all I ask of is a little space that I'm used to. No use worrying about other people when I'm not in the best state.

There's this saying that everyone is broken up inside but what if that part of being broken can't be mended? What happens then?

June 2014

It's been close to a month that I last updated this space. Reason being: school and personal affairs

There were several things that I had to deal with this month but I'm glad it all came out well towards the end. School has been pretty usual except I'm much more consistent this semester than previous ones mainly because I'm sick and tired of the same old process that I had to go through. Let's just stop right here, I'm not gonna bother you with all the academic stuff.

Personally, I didn't stick to my new years' resolution very well of taking in more fruits and vegetables but let's just say I made some improvements to take fruits before dinner so I don't eat too much at night... Earlier in the month, I signed up for a 6 days' trail with Pilates Fitness and I really enjoyed it though I've not gone back to sign up for a package with them due to school. I saw pretty good improvements and my appetite actually grew bigger! I've always been known for my small appetite among family and friends so I suppose working out is a good way to relieve stress and lose some fats =) Anyway, I'm super stoked for the coming months - July (my birthday month and the sad realisation that I'm heading on from being 21), August and September (Involves tons of travelling that I can't wait for)

As for tv and film, I indulged in 'Elementary' - a remake of Sherlock Holmes. For some reason, Sherlock Holmes always intrigue me, don't know how or why he does. I'm definitely patiently waiting for Season 3 to come out so I can indulge in the goodness of Sherlock Holmes further =)




















Just very recently also, I caught 'The Fault in Our Stars' at the cinema with my sister and I'm glad I did just because I find the book to have life and volume to it that I expected some serious crying but I didn't - I definitely teared at some scenes. But I absolutely love the songs that accompanied the movie, adds to much more depth to the scenes.




















I'm definitely looking forward to Transformers and more good movies that are supposedly to be out this year =)

In addition, I finally finished Empire's Fall by Richard Russo. I fell into the literary world and I absolutely enjoyed it! I won't say it's my ultimate favourite though just because I still feel the pull from the previous paperback - Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore. I absolutely adore this book, definitely one of my book recommendation!




















It's not often that I mention on my blog that I read chinese novels too but that's the beauty of being bilingual. I'm able to enjoy the best of both worlds. There's this taiwanese show regarding bookstores and their owners but of course, the show doesn't only revolve about books but the passion of books they have in their hearts and I absolutely agree. I've been reading 朱天心 - 古都 and 阿飛 - 那些事與願違的愛情. I've been bouncing between these two novels, both very different styles and genres but I guess both are too hard to be left sitting on my desk without being touched.

With that, I end off my post with one more week of June left, I'm gonna enjoy it to my fullest before the hectic few months to come.

Inspiration

I'm at a very peculiar place as I type out this post. It's been a while since I last wrote anything on here mainly because I was trying to pace myself in real life and on the social platforms. Sometimes I feel like there are a lot of emphasis on the technology these days that makes me feel so lethargic sometimes. 

But then again, it's these technology that sometimes get me really inspired to write about certain things. Maybe these things have been thought about countless of times yet, it's a good form of release to unleash these thoughts. 

The hustle and bustle of the city makes me weary sometimes, discouraging me from posting my not so significant thoughts on to the internet for the world to see... But you know what inspires me? Music, artists, anything and everything artistic... I'm not an artist but I would like to think I am in my own way =) there is always something that leaves me in awe even if it's something that not many people are interested in (I may be totally wrong about this). For example, the story behind each album, drawing or character and how the thought process of creating these pieces that becomes so significant not only to the artist but also to someone out there in the world. I'm definitely not influential but if what I write can make you think a little bit in life then I guess, that's all that's worth it =) 

Just a little quote that I came across on Pinterest today: "Nothing worth having comes easy."

MLBB?

Another post in a week! Sometimes, I get really inspirational and can churn out post after post although there are periods where I get a 'writer block'.

I've shared my mini beauty haul a couple of days back and within those products, I've tried the BareMinerals Mineral Moxie Lipgloss in 'Rebel'. And shall I say, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I was a little skeptical about the colour that I chose because my judgement gets the better of me sometimes. This time round though, I give myself a pat on the back =) 'Rebel' is probably the colour of my lips but better, you know that phrase 'my lips but better', this colour is totally it! It lasts quite well on my lips [close to 2 hours +] considering I didn't apply any lip balm although there was a slight tingling sensation on my lips minutes after application [this doesn't bother me too much though]. I'm not sure if it's the brush or the way it is angled but application was extremely smooth, there was just enough product on the brush and you could do with a light second coat! You can definitely get away with a reapplication without worrying that there is too much product on your lips, really smooth and lightweight! 

I was blown away with how the product works for me that I went ahead to buy 'Hot Shot' when I spotted Sephora =) I'm definitely excited how a brighter lip shade works out! 

I don't usually gush about a product on my little space but I had to share something that works well!

Mini Beauty Haul

It's not always that I share what I bought just because I feel there isn't a need to however, when these products are too good to not be shared; that's where I come in. I'm not into taking pretty product pictures so links are my best friend.


  1. The Body Shop - Shea Body Scrub - I've gone through one tube of this religiously but decided to try another (Innisfree Green Tea Body Scrub) before going back to this. My skin has been really really dry so this works exceptionally well as far as moisturising goes... 
  2. Bare Minerals - Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss (Rebel) - I've been looking for a lipgloss colour that I don't have to think about pairing with what lipstick so this one is really a no-brainer. 
  3. YSL - Rouge Volupte Lipstick (13 Peach Passion) - Found this shade while leisurely browsing through counters at Tangs and this caught my eye =) Can't say much about what this would do to my complexion and whatsoever cause I haven't tried it on.  
  4. Benefit - Gimme Brow (Medium/Deep) - Have not tried any other brow products, the main reason: I'm too lazy to maintain my eyebrows but recently, I realised how much I missed having my eyebrows groomed to perfection and not having to worry about it being too bushy. So since there's quite a hype about this, I figured I should give this a go! 
And that's all the things that I've hauled so far! Out of all the products, I would say I'm most excited about the brow product!

That's all for today! Till next time!
