Food for Thoughts #1

Today, I thought to share something more of personal.
Probably need a break from things I am doing.
We all don't need to blog about beauty and events everyday, do we?

Yes, we all know a lot of people in this world, but how much exactly do you know about them?
Hopefully, by the end of this post, you will feel,
"Hey, Looks like I am not the only one like this in this world" 
or
"This girl's thoughts are interesting"

It would definitely make me happy if you find my blog is interesting and worthy to follow.

Better still if we all learn something from each other, then we get to make everyday's life a little bit more meaningful :)

1. My life have always been jar full of blessing candies. Not saying that it is without any challenges, but I have always made it through safe and sound. I am thankful that with fevers during childhood, I am always in good hands and never went into epilepsy. Despite my misfortune of falling down the staircase at age 3, I manage to keep my right leg even when all odds were against my favor. (Many surgeons said the fracture cause an infection to the bone, which may result in amputation). With my family's perseverance and love, that I am able to walk today. What I am trying to say is look at the positive aspect at every downfall you've had. Some people may have it worse off but they can still live in positive thoughts.

2. Humans are unique in every ways, so we all must learn to respect that. Gays, Lesbians and even Bisexual are like races to me. Like Muslim, Buddhist, Christians, etc.. Fair skin, dark, duku langsat skin... As long we do no harm and help others with sincere hearts, does it even matter what the others preach? You don't have to practice what is against your belief but keep an open heart. Just because I don't eat beef, doesn't mean I have to dislike everyone who eats them. After all, we are all humans living on the same planet.

3. Live life the way you wanted in moderation. You want to go on a trip, DO IT. It doesn't have to be luxurious like Paris and Japan. At least, you've been to somewhere. If it's your aim in life, then save money for it. Since the world keeps changing and it wasn't like last time, where cancer and disaster is rare, do things with no regrets. Spend time with our loved ones. Live life like tomorrow is our last.

4. I know some may think this is easier said than done. What is meant for work is should remain at work. Don't bring them home. If you find yourself staying back in office most of the time, this isn't hard work. That is poor time management. Your children and family do not deserve the lack of social time and love from someone they look upon. After all, when something bad happens to you, it's your family who will stay by your side. Not your work or office.

5. Try to make at least one person smile everyday. You may be the only person who lift their hearts the entire day. Communicate and engage. Sometimes, it's good to step out of our comfort zone and mingle around. After all, it's going to be Christmas soon :)

I am going to spend my Christmas surrounded by people I love. 
How about you?

MAYBELLINE Rocket Volum' Express Mascara [REVIEW]

The past weeks have been nothing but hectic. 
I supposed that this is one of the things in life you have to face when you have a full time job.
Not exactly easy when there are only two of you and one is away on holiday.
Oh well, at least I am able to feed my family and tummy :)

I have been posting on my Instalgram for ages, hints on my all time favorite mascara.

HERE IT IS!


Kind sister got me this mascara when they were having sales in early October.
It has been on my wishing list for so long because my old mascara at that time has started to dry up.
You know the funny things mascaras do when they are about to retire > <


MAYBELLINE Volum' Express Rocket Mascara comes in an unique Supersonic Brush with formula that promises fast glide. The mascara wand has micro bristles which volumize our eyelash up to 8 times and the fast glide formula allows smooth, zero clumps application.

*I didn't wash my mascara wand, so I don't know if it looks like that in actual*

Most importantly, it is FREAKING WATERPROOF!
*No more scary eyes on Woman's Night Out!*
MAYBELLINE Volum' Express Rocket Mascara is easily removed with soap and water.
Dear Contact lens users, please rest assured. This babe is ophthalmologist approved!
Explosive Volume in Rocket Time!


MY VERDICT

I like MAYBELLINE Volum' Express Rocket Mascara mainly because of it brings out my lashes with no clumping! You can see it really coats every lashes. Plus it's waterproof!
(Remember, I tear very easily) Although, my eyelashes does not appear thicker in volume with application, (probably due to absence micro fibers and my originally fine and sparse eyelashes), I can see my eyelash is remarkably longer and enhanced. Suitable for everyday casual use. What I like about this mascara is that my eyes look as if it still has mascara on, even after removal the day before (Commented by my colleagues) :D I would definitely purchase this MAYBELLINE Volum' Express Rocket Mascara again in future.

Rating: 4/5

Retail price: RM 39.90

BURST ASIA 2014 [Post EVENT]

It has been a very VERY busy week. 
With sweet boyfie birthday, studies, work and TWO major record setting events to jiggle in one week, makes me wish to have extra hours around the clock and extra pairs of hands and feet.
Err...maybe not the extra limbs, that would be absolutely hideous ><

So, what are the major events I am talking about?

29th Nov 2014: Burst Asia 2014
30th Nov 2014: The Maze Challenge Asia 2014
+
Boyfie birthday

One thing at a time. One event review a day :)

Thanks to my boyfie for sponsoring me to this event. Muaks muaks* :D


The BURST ASIA 2014 is an event to set the Malaysia Book of Records for the largest water balloon fight in Malaysia with a total estimation of 10,000 participants and 200,000 balloons. 
Do the math and it should be 20 water balloons per head count? :)
This event also serve to create awareness, as well as raise funds for the Malaysia Aids Foundation. Hence, the change of date in the event to meet the International World Aids Day Celebration which falls on the 1st December 2014.

This event is open to age 16 years and above for safety reasons. Those under 18 would need to have parental consent (which I think is a good move) 

The Rules
1. Enter with your tickets or else your access will be denied.
2. No PETS allowed. 
(I understand sometimes you want your loving woofs and miaws to have a 
little more excitement in life)
3. No Water Guns or water playing devices allowed.


It was raining when we arrived at the Dataran Petaling Jaya (opposite Amcorp Mall). Personally, I felt it was ironic to get wet before the water balloon fight event starts. Oh well. 

*Getting soaked before the event starts*


We had to load some water balloons ourselves because 20 water balloons per person is just not enough! When you are having fun, things tend to get insufficient, don't they? :) I learnt something in the process because I have never filled a water balloon before, nor did I throw one. 
*You must be thinking what kind of childhood life have I been living><*

*Our stash of water balloons. <3*
Luckily we were smart to bring an extra plastic bag to hold them in. Those who didn't could only hold one in each hand or carry them in their T-shirts XD

RED FM was there to keep the atmosphere going and there were lots of giveaway! 
There were fun interactions and game sessions. The only thing I manage to get from them was a Spritzer's Tinge mineral water. Better than nothing I supposed. At least I get to quench some thirst :d

*Say Hi!* 
Sorry for the super blur image. Was super excited to meet these guys!

*LOOK AT THE AMOUNT OF CROWD!*
I saw a man in wheelchair who came to support the event, even though it was drizzling.
Salute his spirit!

Hot DJ with sizzling singer working in hand to keep us entertained. 
I bet a lot of the girls and guys agree that they did a great job!

*WooHoo! Rock the night away!*

*One very blur image I took in hurry with Mr Boyfie ><*

Towards end of the event, participants were given the opportunity to take selfies at the photo booths as memories of the event.

*We are pros in lame poses XD*
(God knows why Mr Boyfie decided to last minute hide behind my back in the last picture)


Overall, I had a great time. It does not matter if the weather was being challenging, getting muddy and all. Most importantly was spending time with the person I loved and everything would be fun. The only dissapointment I had was NOT being hit by a SINGLE random water balloon. Come on man! D8 This is supposed to be a water balloon fight, right? Such luck.
Even the only water balloon I threw at Mr Boyfie decided to bounce off his neck and pop on the ground D<
The goodies bags could only be collected post event due to some unexpected circumstances that delayed the products arrival. Cannot blame them. 
Organizing events is not the easiest thing to do. 
At least, we had our fun and at the same time, helping others :)

I was amused by random rubber in packets they were distributing at the event. If you know what I mean *wink* But being educated and all, this event is supposed to create awareness in HIVs and AIDs, as well as in conjunction of International World Aids Day Celebration. I know they do not mean to encourage certain acts but merely to promote safe actions, seeing the alarming rise in statistics. We are all adults. No one can stop you if you intend to commit actions by human instinct, but at least, they did something right to protect you. No use crying over spilled milk. Some individuals used their creativity to make balloons out of them. XD
No puns intended.

So, I hope you had fun reading.
Stay tune for my next blog update!
