Time for my monthly lens review from duffy beau! Green lens for today, first time wearing green lenses! :)
Oh ya, today's post will have quite some camwhore shots again! Plus 100% no editing haha, my makeup today is too powerful muaha..... But my expression is kind of weird in most photos (you can look at my eyes and mouth ya) so yeah..
The lenses in their vials! The code for this pair is WMM-303 and they're 15mm by the way :D
I think many of you would have seen me posting pictures of these vials on facebook/twitter/instagram a few days ago already! I was super excited on seeing them, so pretty!
Never ever thought green lenses would look cute to me like this pair!!! ♥ Saw some website recommending this design so I decided to pick this pair for July..
Basically, the lens design is commonly known as bambi :) Black outer ring, green design, and yellowish brown inner ring! This design is really awesome, I might want to get all colors for the bambi design~
Green eyes now! I don't know why, its green but really really very natural! Haha, I know, its very random to have a camwhore shot in between, next will be close ups of my eyes!
Top is close up in bright lighting, bottom is actually from a distance away. Don't you agree that it is super natural???
I don't know why my face look really distorted here haha, maybe the angle, but look at my eyes! Really mad love this pair! Somemore I feel that the yellow inner ring actually looks a bit like I have a ring light or something haha!
Comfort: 5/5 - you can really trust geo lens :) as long as they're authentic....
Enlarging: 4/5 - after getting used to 16.2mm lenses 15mm seems normal sized.. But not measly small ya?
Design: 5/5 - I mentioned above right? I think I wanna get every color of this bambi design hehe!
Color: 5/5 - Green and yellowish brown shows up very well even on my black eyes!
My new favourite pair! Pardon my weird expression ya, just look at my green eyeballs! :D
Don't be jealous of my eyes, I have good news to share!

Lastly, I kind of cannot believe this is my new hair color haha! Like "omg did I really dye my hair??" And everywhere I walk, I die die have to look at my reflection.. Now I think everyone can recognise me from my backview!! ^^
Hehe I shall go to bed now! More posts coming up, advertorials/reviews and personal food posts, so stay tuned! :D
Contemplated for a loooong time and finally decided to do my virgin hair dye! :D Many who know me will know that I'm super scared to dye my hair in case my hair gets damaged or the color doesn't suit me! Yes, I had black black hair for the past 20 years...
Sneak peek of my new hair! Super love! They really did an awesome job! (Sorry I don't usually comb my hair so the photo on the left kind of messy lol)
I did my research on many saloons as well as hairstyles/colors, and finally decided to do dip dye hair with Vintage Studio! I was like, first time dying my hair, must die die find a reliable and good saloon to do my hair!!!! Anyway, dip dye aka ombre hair is kind of like a newer hair trend, plus I thought I won't have to do touch up color so this is for me :D
So I called to book an appointment and came down to their newly opened bugis+ branch. (In case you don't know, bugis+ is actually the rennovated iluma!) I'm gonna spam photos of their pretty vintage-y interior below! Everything follows the theme, even the wallpaper!
I must say their service is great! Once me and my boyf entered, they ushered us to sit down and offered a "menu" of hot drinks to choose from! Haha, so cute.. Even boyf who didn't do his hair got a drink too :D Also, throughout the whole time, they were very friendly and chatty!
Briefly told them what I wanted to do with my hair and showed a picture for reference. Apparently, for the color I chose, I have to bleach my hair.. So they did things step by step, updating me about what they're doing at each point of time, and checking with me if the color is okay~ Super professional! All in all, my hair was bleached twice before adding in ash blonde color.
Bleaching in progress!
Haha, my yellow yellow hair after bleaching!
Color of my hair after bleaching twice~
They spammed me with many many nice magazines in case I was bored!
Another thing I liked about them is their washing area! It has a more private feel, not beside another washing area. Other saloons' washing area is very "open", makes me feel weird lying there, and especially when there is someone beside you gettin their hair washed, its like awkward max!
After adding color to my hair, I was lying here for sometime peacefully soaking up treatment or something hehe :3
And the color is done!
Less yellow and more ashy now!! :D I like!
They were super concerned, kept asking me if I like the color! They tonged my hair for me super nicely after trimming my hair, and kept saying they wanna give boyf a surprise when he sees me lol!
Can really see a lot of effort from the tonging :') My hair looks like I can attend some super atas dinner or something hehe!
All done :D Super love my new hair, plus the curls! The curls really complement this dye a lot! Make me feel like perming my hair whenever I look at these photos~
This is Seven (yes that's his name lol, I was shocked too), he was my main stylist! :)
(I looked like crap urgh, what's wrong =.=)
Can't stop snapping!
My nice nice boyfriend who waited for 6+hours for me to do my hair, feel so bad! Didn't expect it to be this long! :s
Okay, last photo of me!
Really love how they've transformed my hair! Even after bleaching twice, my hair is not dry at all unlike what everyone told me! Thanks Vintage Studio for making my hair so pretty!!!
Anyone interested in their serivces, please feel free to make an appointment with them! Apart from bugis+, they also have branches in far east plaza and holland village.
Also, you can quote me "Yingjie" for a 20% off! :D
Yay, shall go off to admire my hair again before I sleep :3
I was sent these 2 products by Metholatum to try out last week!
Before I try them out~~
Left: Mentholatum Acnes Facial Scrub
Right: Mentholatum Acnes Creamy Wash
They're promoting their new product, which is the acnes scrub! The creamy wash have been around for some time and selling well! :D Here are more details on the products!
For the Acnes Creamy Wash.. What it does: Remove excess sebum, Anti Bacterial, Soothing, Deep Cleansing, Moisture Retention, Anti-oxidation. You get a creamy foam after lathering with water! Its pleasant on the face and I think it really works..... Despite the lack of sleep this week, I don't have any major breakouts so far! Actually I think many of you have already used it before and I don't really have to say anything about this! :)
The new scrub...!
I've tried this scrub myself, and to sum it up, its a pretty good scrub, especially with the blue beads which gives a menthol sensation! I've tried some scrubs before and this is the only one that contains the menthol sensation! Also, I'm kinda scared to scrub my face usually due to the coarse scrubbing beads, but this one no, its very gentle! :D The only thing to be careful of is to not scrub near your eyes. Not because its rough on the skin, but because the thinner skin around your eyes may not be able to withstand the menthol feeling..
Look at the 2 colored beads! (I took a lot of effort to take this photo okay, the beads are so difficult to capture in photo!!!)
Like Acnes (SG) FB page to redeem a 3-step kit sample today!
Alternatively, you can purchase the Acnes 2-Beads Facial Scrub at $7.50 from Watsons, Guardian, major pharmacies and supermarkets!
Try it now! :)
Sorry for the lack of updates! Was really busy, and still busy. Short short post here!
Me haz my own namecard! Pro or not? :p The other people below are some of my project group mates! And look at the leftmost photo! :)
Baaaaah~ This current module is really busy! :( With deadlines for different stuffs daily, me dying already! Project meetings end past midnight daily, luckily boyf is in the same group as me then can go back hall together, if not I don't think I'll dare to walk through NTU alone at night.. Lack of sleep~ No pimples please!!! :( Was just done with some presentation and pitching yesterday, then off to work on the project again. Ahh 3 more days!!!!
I really have no life now. I don't know how long I haven't been out already.. And all the movies I wanna watch not watched yet!!! :( Really no time to even blog, shall rush an advertorial soon!
That's so horrible right!!! Pushing an old lady down the bus, what if she breaks her leg or something?? I feel like asking him, "ALEX ONG, U NO GRANDPARENTS IS IT?????????????!!!!!!" If that lady is my grandmother, I'm surely sueing him to hell.
And he used so much strength to push her down =.= Look at what he's going to say below.. Liar. Super disagree to many things that he said. If you're lazy to read, read the red words. Highlighted yellow words are my comments.
This is what he wrote in his blog, which is now locked. Credits to http://singaporenewsalternative.blogspot.sg
So, where do I start?
Do I start from the very beginning, or do I start from the reason why I’m writing this in the first place?
Perhaps I should start with the reason why I started this blog, since I suspect most of you will be directed here after reading press reports of the incident that triggered this.
Let me fill you in on my side of the story.
I have been trying to find a proper, stable job for over half-a-year now. My previous job was as a temporary admin at Informatics, a job that sucked hard, with disgustingly long hours, disgusting environment, disgusting pay, and a disgusting commute. I hated it, and I swore to myself not to take such jobs ever again. Unfortunately, my choice is limited - I will explain why at a later time - and this has been frustrating me, along with other matters I will explain later.
Fast-forward to 5th of June, this year.
I was going to Dhoby Ghaut by bus from my home in Sembawang to get something fixed. At Thomson, this old lady pressed the stop bell at the last minute, to which I told her not to the next time.
She just simply and suddenly shouted back at me for that.
I ask: who doesn’t get angry over something like this, trying to advise someone on the proper way of doing things, only to be shouted back at for no rhyme or reason?
Obviously I was not happy with this, and because of this an argument broke out between the two of us. In a fit of anger, I threatened her to either get off the bus or that I will slap her, to which she said, “No! I won’t get off this bus! So what?!”. (your violent tendencies already surfaced here)
All I wanted was her out of the way so I can continue my journey.
So I give her a light push to get her off the bus. (just now violent, now so gentle want to give her a soft push?)
I never ever wanted to injure or hurt her in any way, nor did I ever have any intention to make her fall, or to really harm her in any way.
But fall she did, and hurt herself lightly she did, and for that, I was really both shocked and sorry about it. At that point of time though, I was just angry, I was just pissed, and I just want to continue my journey without this old lady holding up things.
I did not wish to go into details on between what happened next and when the police arrived, but what I can say is that I did intend to leave the scene just so I can continue my journey, but something - a sense of responsibility, a sense of having to give a proper explanation - took me back there. I knew I had to be responsible for everything that happened. (You will not be credited for this at all. Stop hoping.)
In the back of my mind, I knew things might get blown out of proportion, so I called my dad to inform him of what happened, just in case. As his job was relatively mobile, he decided to drive down to the scene to have a look at the situation. (How old are you? 25 years old and need your dad to clear your shit for you?? Somemore interrupting him when he was working)
Eventually the police and ambulance services arrived, and both me and the old lady were interrogated while the commuters were ushered onto another bus.
I informed the police that I have been having some emotional instability this past few weeks, owing to how I wasn’t able to secure a good job and certain items in the news, and that I myself am struggling with psychological issues (obsessive-compulsive disorder, clinical depression, autism-spectrum disorder), and that I never intended to injure the lady, that everything happened as a culmination of a lot of anger that has been simmering inside me. (How would we know if those disorders are excuses or not? If those are true, then he is some dangerous guy that should be locked at home or something. And he pushed her because of his disorders or anger then? If its anger, no reason to vent it on her, intentional or not! Seems like just a big chunk of excuses added together to save his ass)
This was conveyed to the old lady, who understood my situation and was willing to drop the matter as long as I offered an apology, which I gave and she accepted.
The next day (yesterday), I was called down to the police station to give a statement regarding the incident. I was told by the officer that, if not for my remorse and the fact that I have some psychological issues, I could definitely have been charged. I said in my statement that again, I felt remorse over the incident, that I have offered my apologies to the old lady who accepted it, and that I’m actually worried over her condition. The officer said that he will do his best to get just a stern warning over the matter from his supervisor, given the mitigating factors, to which I’m grateful for for him to do that.
Now, you might ask, where did all this anger come from?
I was reflecting upon the whole incident afterward, when I realised that, ultimately, my anger all stemmed from incidents that happened earlier in my life, anger that otherwise had nowhere to go. (Stop blaming other things ya? Everyone had unhappiness in some point of their life before too.)
But first, the immediate sources: why so much anger in me?
Firstly, the aforementioned inability to find a good job. My later posts will give you more insight about this but let me just go through this quickly.
Yes, I admit: I’m picky about jobs, but who doesn’t want a comfortable job doing what he/she likes? Unfortunately, my qualifications has excluded me from all but dead-end temporary jobs, and as I mentioned earlier, my last job was disgusting and emotionally drained me out.
Add to the fact that your parents have been pushing you to get a job for ages, and the shame of being a 25-year-old having to financially depend on your dad.(Talk about shame? Well its totally your fault that you're picky from all that I can see. All jobs are emotionally draining in one way or another. You think everyone enjoy their jobs? I think not. )
Singapore is such a society in that everything requires both money and qualifications to chase dreams; I have a lot of dreams, but how to chase such dreams when you lack both?
Again, all will be revealed later on.
Secondly, that recent accident involving the PRC-driven Ferrari at Bugis.
That really got a lot of nerves fraying in Singapore, but it stuck an extreme chord in me, as I see it as an incident where rich foreign trash ruins the dreams of a local working-class family, killing off their sole breadwinner. When I read how the taxi driver’s daughter may have to delay her studies because of this incident, it stuck an especially hard chord in myself, for I know how it is like to have your studies, your dreams, to be taken away by bastards.
I know that feeling, as I was there myself.
In fact, at one point I got so angry that I really took a knife and told my father, “let’s go kill some Chinamen”. Of course, my dad had to literally physically stop me from doing so, but my anger remained.(Violent tendencies showing again =.=)
And quite unfortunately, my anger, which had nowhere to go, had to be released on an innocent old lady.
Again, I deeply apologise to the old lady, and I wish her no lasting harm.
Personally, I think I'd be annoyed if someone presses the bell at the last minute, especially if I'm rushing for time. However, I'm sure nobody will do that on purpose, press last minute and suffers the awkward moment when the whole bus stares at you stand up to get down. I don't see the need for him to advice the old lady to not do that in the first place?
Basically, all that I can say about him is that he has some anger managment problem, very serious violent tendencies, not independant enough for a 25 year old guy and full of excuses. Period.
Anyway, his tone for the whole post is like an official explanation letter carefully drafted out, blah. Explain already then lock up his blog for what?
Another article, this is his facebook post. Trying to gain pity. Source: https://www.facebook.com/eXAKR/posts/2807198317973
Before this hits the press, let me tell you my side of the story.
So this afternoon I was travelling by bus to Dhoby Ghaut. At around Thomson Road, this old lady hit the bell at the last minute, so I told her not to hit the bell at the last minute the next time. Immediately she shouted at me, "I did not do it intentionally!".
Of course, from my point of view I was only trying to advise her not to do this kind of thing, so I was quite agitated when she just shouted back at me like this. We got into an argument, and I told her to "get off this bus". She simply shot back, "no, I won't."
With emotions running high, I let loose a "I will slap you!" to her, to which she said "come!". I reached breaking point and gave her a light push, which resulted in her falling off the steps.
Now, I know I should never have done this, but if you were in my shoes, you of course could have exploded as well.
This resulted in her getting the driver of the bus to call for the police and ambulance, who arrived and took statements from both of us. Everyone on the bus had to be ushered onto another bus. I called my father just in case the old lady escalated the case, causing me to be detained by the police. He came by and explained my personal situation to the officers.
What's my personal situation, you ask?
I have been holding back all of these for a very long time, with only a few close to me who knew. I guess now is the time to bare it all.
I have OCD, I had clinical depression resulting from the abuse I went through in NS and secondary school, and when I was younger I was diagnosed with ASD.
Try struggling with all of these on top of having to deal with a lifetime of abuse and bullying, from primary school to NS.
On top of that, my emotions have been unstable recently because of the rage I had over that taxi accident. You know which one.
Obviously the state of my mind has been less than hardened; a simple tip could send it all crashing. And I guess this is what happened today.
I never intended to injure the old lady. I have a deep respect for elders. The only reason why I did any of this was because deep-down inside, I felt offended, I felt the need to defend myself.
I do not represent a society of decaying morals. I'm a product of a society that has abused me, neglected me, and ultimately, misunderstood me. I do not represent the decay of morals, I am the product of the decay of morals society has on individuals like myself.
I do not have an easy life. Money is hard to come by. My parents are separated. I only have three credits in 'O' levels. Jobs I like are near-impossible to come by.
When your life dreams are taken away right in front of you, by people who are supposed to help you, with the help of people who are determined to make your life miserable, the amount of rage that builds up inside you can only be immense.
You feel vengeful against society. You can only resign yourself to the sad fact that this is your karma. You must have offended too many people in previous lives.
No one really truly understands the pain I went through.
Now that I have bared it all, will you find a way to help me, or will you make my life even more miserable for your sadistic pleasure? (STOP TRYING TO LOOK PITIFULL FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!!!!!!!)
P.s. the bus was TIB 446E.
Read till I'm really sick of his excuses. I don't know if his illness is real or not, but there are people much worse off than him, physically or mentally. This post doesn't make me pity him more at all.
Even if he's pitiful or really angry or stressed, still no reason for him to push the old lady. The old lady really has a big heart to forgive him. He should at least compensate her or something.....
Yes, its masking time again! Finally another presentation down and I can relax for a short short while!
Today's mask is Lovemore's White Crystal & Platinum mask sponsored by Secretive!!
Excited! I've used lovemore's 2d masks before, but not this 3d series! This series is the Crystal peptide kiss series! Don't you look forward to revitalized skin that has botox effect??? Read on for the properties of this series!
Me can't wait to put it on! :D
Their masks have a honeycomb design!
And yes, its a 3d mask similar to the Sexylook mask that I reviewed last week! Click here for the post
I know I'm repeating myself again, but here it goes... The whole below-chin area is also taken care of apart from the face! There are 2 pairs of ear hooks: from the cheeks and from under the chin. The hooks are really a great invention, apart from the firming effect, they hold the mask in place very well and for those super busy people, you can do the masking without having to lie down!
Okay see my fat fat chubby chubby face here lol! I seriously didn't know my face is this chubby till I saw this photo! Oh no, mask mask please save me!
The mask I used is the white crystal & platinum peptide one, its mainly for double whitening effect and here are its functions!
The packet of mask sheet is soaked in a generous amount of essence, and there is even excess after using the leftover essence in the packet on my boyf's face and neck! Also, after removing the mask, the essence dries up on my face really quickly, so I don't have to deal with a sticky/wet face for too long, good for masking before sleeping! I can really feel my face tightening after removing this mask in 20minutes! I guess the tightening and face-lifting effect is working really well! :D
Yay, pretty photo after masking! :D
You can purchase this lovemore mask from http://www.secretive.sg/zencart/ !
Do like their facebook to keep up with latest updates! https://www.facebook.com/secretive.sg
Enjoy masking! :D
