Welcome to My Blog

Are you familiar with that feeling when you are in a date for the first time? Or that time when you want to make friends with the people in your new company? I say this is the same feeling that I have while doing this entry. It is like trying to come up with a good opening remarks or sales pitch where you actually want to be understood clearly and not leave your audience scratching their heads because they have no idea of what you just said 😀 After having this blog for quite some time, I thought it will be an easy task to talk to my dream reader.

Review: Lime Crime Velvetines (Red Velvet, Utopia and Wicked)

This particular brand is not carried by any department stores here in Singapore. I got my first Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet last year thru an online seller (Pinkpout SG). When I found out the latest color that they will release this year, I sent a query to the same seller but I have not received any response. Read More



REVIEW: Bag Cushions by PoppyPh

I love bags – that is a given fact.

She’d lost her mother. I’d lost my mother. She’d written books. I’d written books. A few coffees led to dinner with our husbands and the friendship chemistry was apparent. If I’d have met her in my 20s, we might have been godmothers of each other’s children. But now that we’re older, the friendship thing doesn’t work quite as well as it used to. Kids, jobs and, well, just life get in the way of forging a real connection. Yes, we’ve gotten together, but not nearly as often as I would have liked. Read More


work-day

The Adventures of Job Hunting

2 days ago, I applied for a new job. Then I got an email for a scheduled assessment and so I prepared for it. Today was the assessment day, I excused myself from my current work, woke up around 7:30 am to prep up. My husband and I even had a fight last night, because I forgot to print my resume. So I had to go out in the middle of the night to get the CV printed. Read More
