Okay I seriously fail at blogging cuz I’m totally not keeping up with this AT ALL

In other news, life sucks but hey it’s not brand new information right?

There will be a lot of changes happening in my life soon and I don’t know if I’m ready for it…but whatever will happen will happen right. I just have to be strong for it.

Oh and I totally feel like getting piercings now…

Bio Wordle

So! I discovered this cool new website, Wordle where you can make word clouds! Awesome, right? So me being me, first thing I tried was to create a bio word cloud ๐Ÿ˜›

Haha yeah, basically I inserted any random biology words that came to my mind, but those are pretty general in my opinion.

Anyway, met with my U.R.O.P.S. prof just now and he gave us lots of advice. Was originally supposed to do the field work at Changi Beach but can’t because of the oil spill, so will probably do it at Pasir Ris Park….Will have to do lots and lots of readings from now on cuz he wants a thorough lit review. Problem is, there are not many research done on Echinoderms of Singapore so yeah….will try my best.

Oh yeah, and another thing…will be going back to Indo from 1 June to 1 August! Can’t wait to be back home!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Umm…

Hi there *shifty eyes*

Yes yes, I know I have not been updating for a bazillion years even though I’m technically free now since exams ended about two weeks ago…but yeah, I haven’t have the slightest clue about what I should write here?

Anyway, I’m still in Singapore now since I need to prepare for my next semester’s research project. It’s going to be on marine biology ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and I’ll only be going back to Indo on 1st of June.

Been spending my time lazing about in my room, drawing (a lot! I wish I have a good camera so that I can put up pictures here) and reading ( 5 books in these two weeks! Man, I’m on a roll ;P). Also, went to watched Iron Man 2 with Charmaine on Saturday. It was not as good as the first on but still decent. RDJ is still hot and Scarlett was amazing. Oh, and I want Tony’s phone ๐Ÿ˜›

Okay, then. Will try to post more regularly during the holidays (not a promise though XD)

Hey hey

So I haven’t been updating a lot. You know…school, life, that-time-of-the-year-when-I-want-to-kill-myself…

The usual stuff

Anyways, I’ve been missing home mighty big lately and so was really really happy when my dad sent me these photos he took:

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww….ย  isn’t he the cutest thing you have ever seen??? He is my puppy (okay not really, he’s quite old but since he still behaves like a kid I still call him a baby). His name is Mosh (short for Moshi-moshi) ๐Ÿ™‚

I saw this e-mail when I was in class and spent several minutes totally squealing (silently of course) and showing the photo to everyone. God, I miss my dog so much โค <3<3

This totally just made today the most awesome day ever ^^

My Mother

Today is my mom’s birthday. What can I say about her?ย  She is probably the most important person in my life. I have learned so much from her it is impossible to list it all. We’ve argued often, of course, especially when I was younger but nowadays arguments are rare. She is one of the few people who truly gets me and never judged me at all. She have many weaknesses and strength. She has done many extraordinary things in her life and many mistakes too. She is not perfect but she is my mom. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I love you so so much mom. Happy Birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

Because I enjoy tempting my best friend

Manda! Here are some links I thought you would like (mwahahahahaha)

Poems (Remember I’ve told you about them? Go look at Pablo Neruda’s and this is the one I’ve mentioned [warning: possible tear jerker])

Ten Thousand Questions (Really interesting ones that prompt you to think [cuz you don’t do that often enough])

I Wrote This For You (Really really sweet)

The rest, you can find on the blogroll. Just curious, which ones have you visited?

Meh

Damn you AJ, why did I have to discover your blog and twt??? It probably sucked out three hours of my study time hahaha…

In other news… CA is tomorrow and I’m thoroughly screwed. In library now but keep procrasinating…

What else is new?

The Raven and The Writing Desk

Guess what I did today!

Yup! I went to watch Alice in Wonderland (3D) since it came out today in Singapore and it’s my no-lab week! It’s really really really awesome I’m telling you. Totally live up to the hype. The 3D effect is gorgeous and didn’t leave me dizzy like Avatar did (FYI, in my humble opinion, this movie is better than Avatar. However, they each have their own charm).

I’m honestly surprised about how much I love this Alice movie because well, I (used to) have….an aversion to Alice. Mainly because of this person:

Yup, Disney’s animated Queen ofย  Heart. So the story is, when I was a kid (probably around 6 or 7) my mom bought the laser disc (remember those?) for Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. I watched and to put it gently, it wasn’t a pleasant experience. The Queen of Heart was a horrid horrid woman I’m telling you. She keep on screaming and ill-treating all those people. She just won’t stop. And then there is the nasty flowers, the confusing blue caterpillar and the mean evil walrus. Plus that end scene where everyone is chasing Alice and shouting for her to be captured. So yeah… I didn’t like it and begged my mom to never make me watch that ever again. Trust Tim Burton to turn something I hate to something I love haha. Well, actually if I hadn’t watched that movie as a kid I might not dislike Alice. After all, the book is part of a genre I love (quirky, weird, fantasy world with scientific allegories? Sign me up!)

So, after watching the movie, I became very curious about the book and wanted to read it so I went to Page One. I ended up with this haul:

Yup I bought four books. Those are:

Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You

by Toni DiTerlizzi and Holly Black

I’ve been wanting this book for so long! What is there not to love about it? The illustrations are lovely and it is an encyclopedia of faerie! (I’m currently looking for Faeries by Brian Froud, hopefully it is still in print!)

The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories by Tim Burton

I’ve said this before and I will say this again. I love Tim Burton.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass

by Lewis Carroll

Alice’s Adventures Under Ground by Lewis Carroll

Now, you are probably wondering why I brought two copies of Alice. The second book is actually a print of the original manuscript written and illustrated by Lewis Carroll himself to be given to Alice Pleasance Liddell, the girl who was the inspiration for Alice. Here’s a look inside the book (picture from Wikipedia):

Amazing isn’t it? It possess such a precious charm that I couldn’t resist buying it haha.

Speaking of purchases, here are the few items I’ve bought recently:

Skull earphone

I bought this from a vendor in my school and I love love love it so much! It’s comfortable, the sound quality is good and it is really cheap (less that $30)! Plus, the skulls are awesome ^_^

(L-R)

Adzuki Bean and Rice Shower Gel ( Spa Wisdom Japan)

Japanese Cherry Blossom Bath and Shower Gel

Adzuki Bean and Rice Washing Grains (Spa Wisdom Japan)

Japanese Cherry Blossom Puree Body Lotion

All of them are from The Body Shop. I’m telling you, my guilty pleasure is toiletries. I love soaps and shampoos much more than I love make up and perfume and Body Shop is pretty much my favourite place to buy toiletries ^_^

Wow, that is a long post! Okay, going off now to admire my books! ^_^

Coming Soon

Okay, I’m procrastinating now…. So going to pay for this tomorrow.

Bought some stuff lately. Will make a post about that tomorrow.

My room is finally tidy and I love it <3. It's still as hot as a sauna though to the point where I'm wishing snowpocalypse will hit Singapore for just 1 week.

I am procrastinating. Welcome to Mid-terms Week

Shopping!

Okay, so I went on a shopping spree yesterday and surprisingly I bought make-up! Anyone who knows me know that I don’t wear make up ๐Ÿ˜› However, lately I’ve been hearing a lot about you know, how as a girl I should know the basics of wearing make-up and I think this is kinda true. I don’t think it is about being a girl, I think it is about making yourself presentable. So I tried it out and it turns out to be quite fun! I think I will have much fun experimenting with it ๐Ÿ™‚

So without further ado, these are what I bought yesterday:

Topshop Heart Tights

(not as nice as I thought it would be but I think it will look nice with my boots)

Forever 21 Red Anchor necklace

Make up!

Mac make-up

ZA Foundation

Brushes kit from Watson

Close ups:

Lipstick -Equality (Lustre)

Lipgloss – C-Thru

Eyeshadow – Brulรฉ (Left) and Soba (Right)

These are all from the All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection. I mostly bought neutral and beige-y colours because I think those are easier to mix and match and I prefer my make up to be natural looking anyway. However, I’m also tempted to try some colours (blue maybe) for my eye-shadow. Haha, but not now, probable in 3 months or so. I just want to get the hang of the basics first!

So here’s my entire make-up collection

Not much compared to others but it’s good enough for now ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and I apologise for the low quality pictures, my phone’s camera sucks.
