Okay, lets see what have I been doing for the past 8 months.
I resigned from Starbucks, my home.
and boy, i sure do miss the family.

This is the last photo I have taken with a few of the crazy people I worked with.
clockwise -

I went for the cabin crew interview in Johor somewhere around March/April
* I honestly dont remember when *
and I got into Malaysia Airlines

Started training late May 2011
It was fun, really.

the day we got our name tags.

and time to cramp our tiny minds with safety knowledgge.

our first flight
Inflight Observation Experience (A330 - 300)
Destination: Denpasar (Bali)

and celebrated my birthday,
which was just a day before graduation.
It was an awesome night.
He got me tulips *my fav* and cherry blossom gift set from Body Shop
 and sis got me Ted Baker leather watch.

and this was graduation
with my little rascal.

this was taken on one of the many nights I had to spent in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
I spent 6 nights there and..

the 7th night in Taipei, Taiwan.
I didnt get to do any visiting due to weather but I went 7-e
*only because I was starving*
and I found this:

and this was in Singapore.

I will write more next time, I promise.
Till then,

Imma lucky girl! :D

Yes, I am indeed!
At the beginning of the year, I stumbled upon this Fashion Reviewer's Site:

and they were having a "Maxi Dress Day" contest on every 7th January of every year.
It was as simple as ABC.
All I had to do was, capture a photo of myself wearing a maxi dress,
send it in via e-mail along with contact details.
That's all I had to do. (:
Next, all participants were to wait till 7th February for the winner announcement.
I wasn't expecting to win but when La Robe * Prize sponsor * emailed me regarding this,
I squealed with joy!!!
(That is because I've never won anything online. Teehee)
Here's my winning photo!!

 Taken @ Sunset Cape, Phuket

and here's my prize from La Robe!!
Received it not too long ago and I loveee the material!
It's chiffon + inner layer with straps that can be tied to your liking.

One day, I was at work with Wen Qi, doing the mid shift.
She came to me showing a video of Katy Perry's latest collection, Shatter.
I was like.. "WTH is shatter??"
And when I saw the video, my jaw dropped open and I was completely amazed!!
I quickly head on to this nail polish website that I normally purchase from:

Unfortunately, the loading of the page on my phone was extremely slow.
I ended up leaving a comment on her FB page saying this:
"Hi, when will Katy Perry's collection be on sale??"
and she replied (or rather said something similar):
"Hi, Mchlle. It wont be on sale till the end of the competition. Nail Fiesta is currently giving away one Katy Perry Collection Set to one lucky winner who "Likes" our FB page (:"
I clicked "Like" on her page a while ago so I just left it as it was.
Few weeks later, my fingers got itchy to purchase new polishes.
I clicked on Nail Fiesta's FB page and this was her status:
"Katy Perry's Collection's lucky winner is.... MICHELLE NG!!"
with my FB link on it!!
You should have seen my reaction real life.
I was screaming in front of my PC screen at home alone.

Here's what I've won:
and here's how the shade looks like with Shatter.

I'm lovin' it!

Be sure to check out Nail Fiesta for awesome deals and affordable nail polishes!
and if you are not sure how the colours will turn out, check out her blog!

(where you can find awesomely cheap OPIs)
(for the colour chart)

I have just bought another three polishes!!
Two for myself and one's for Wen Qi's birthday pressie.

Here's what I am waiting for patiently.

OPI's Blue My Mind

OPI's Dim Sum Plum

China Glaze's Crackle - Black Mesh
(for the birthday girl)

and hopefully Miss Nail Fiesta brings in this whole collection.
I am drooling over the red & turquoise shatter!!

It's been a while since I last wore this dress.
Found it hiding in my wardrobe while I was looking for something.

Got this jacket during a Raya Bazaar @ The Curve few months back.
And the dress?
Cotton On.

I finally got all the stockings I ordered from Colorful Pink Room.
It was definitely worth the wait.

I was watching Ugly Betty two days back.
The lines (not the exact same of course)

I have said my goodbyes,
In fact I said it so often.

Gave me inspiration to write this:

I have said my goodbyes, I may have even said it more than I should.
Some were happy goodbyes. And some others are just hard.
As hard as it is, a person who loves you will wave good bye with tears of joy and sadness.
With a smile on their faces.
Even if it isn't easy.
It never was. It never is.
However, it is up to us to gather the courage and move forward.
Get out of the comfort zone and start a brand new life.
Goodbyes aren't the end.
It is just the beginning of a new chapter.

Well, that's the way I see it.

A space you need to keep watching. (:

I spent my off day building this site up.
Yup, sat in Starbucks, sipped on my usual coffee
and starred into space, with my thinking cap on.

I have to agree with the partner,
that this site, definitely has a touch of my personal blog.

Oh, what am I talking about?
You'll know soon enough.

a.Venue by M.Square

Just make sure you stay tuned!!
We'll be anouncing the official opening date in no time.

This past week, it got me thinking a lot.
About you. About us.
Is this really happening or is it just too good to be true.
Then that particular night, yes, the very night that I got pissed drunk.
You know what ticked me off?
The thought of you carrying her photo wherever you go.
And I questioned myself, where do I stand then?

Thursday, November 11, 2010

she is as vainpot as her mommy.

she woke me up at 9am to take her swimming.
and by 11, we were out the house for shopping grocery spree.
she went to my mom's wardrobe,
picked her own dress
* *
went to my room,
grabbed my boater hat.
and yes,
that is my four year old.

a lil' too soon but she makes me proud.
and no, I did not teach her all that!!
it's in the blood.

of food.drinks.and.what.nots.

Was searching through my old bag of make ups and found these!
Pink & Purple Nail Polish!!
Thankfully it's still usable.

Painted in just before I went The Curve for dinner.

Dinner @ Sakae Sushi with Quah Eugene.
From Ikea's Swedish Meatballs to Bubba Gump to Thai Express to this.
So fickle minded, that guy.
We had..

Lipton's Iced Lemon Tea

Chuka Kurage
* I didn't know it was seasoned jellyfish until eating it after a number of times *

Egg Mayo Gunkan
Chicken Cheese Yaki
Kani Salad

Prawn Fried Rice each, which we both didn't finish.

Last but not least,
more Egg Mayo!!
Egg Mayo Inari is wrapped with seaweed however Gunkan is..
I don't remember.
Eugene ordered Grilled Scallop too.
Which was kinda raw.

Went Starbucks for Coffee after being so bloated.
We played Poker & Chor Dai Di.
and he thought me how to deal.
And kept calling me Fish for being such a noob in Poker.
I cleared my debts by bluffing though.
Who's the Fish now?!
* whistles *

Got home and started with my nails again.
I miss doing manicure.

Combo of Red + Pink, Aqua + Purple
Too free.

I finally received my items from Miccaz!!
But out of everything I bought from them,
I only loved the shorts and the animal print bag.
Hence I'm selling of the other items which are not shown here.

Beige Cardigan: Cloth and Sash Boutique
White Tank Top: Cotton On
Shorts and Bag: Miccaz
I ♥ this pullover oh-so-muchh!!
It's soft and comfy, it's my lullaby!!!
another one from Cotton On.
I always lovee my purchases from this brand.
It is always at affordable prices!
One place that will make a tiny huge hole in my pocket but worth every penny given.
Pinstriped BF Shirt: Cotton On
Black Shorts: Cotton On 
The shirt is pretty long for a not-so-shortie like me.
It looks better tucked in or tied at the end of it.
Material is thick enough to keep me warm and thin enough to walk under hot sunny days.


White Laced Dress: Cloth and Sash
Red Cardigan: The Attire's Attic

I adore every single bit of this number 7th laced dress I've got.
* if I counted correctly *
The cutting is superb and the lace used as layering is awesome.
However, the material is slightly sheer and is best worn with nude colour intimates
* like duhh *
and this Red Pullover which I bought quite sometime ago is excellent though it's a lil' heavy.
Material is thick enough to keep me warm in Genting
* I hate suck in cold cold weathers *
and it is uber comfortable

I am heading to bed now.
Bfore that, I'm gonna eat.
G'night world.
