Workout, Maybe?

Image

4 months ago, I was still diligently working out nearly every day at home in aim to achieve the perfect tummy like the model’s tummy above. The bottom photo that showed my tummy was captured in July.

Yes! I nearly had abs but for some reason, because of trying to keep fit and to maintain my body weight, I had been eating healthily and lesser meals to the extent that I lost some weight and because of my weight loss, my bust size shrunk. (I’m serious!)

I know everyone has their ideal body that they want to achieve or dream of getting, some wants to be fitspo, some want to be skinny and others may want something else. As for me, I have been dreaming of achieving a tanned body, that is somewhat curvy, slightly busty, and a toned tummy to look more like a brunette.

I have always had the impression that brunettes are very pretty, tan body, brown hair and I wanted to be one even though I am an Asian looking girl. Of course, I know that I may be oddly weird as every Asian girl wants to look like the Korean POP stars, skinny, tall and lean, fair skin, and big eyes. For me, it was different. I think that looking like a brunette was my version of beautiful, bust size was important and so was waistline, hips and tummy.

Therefore, in order to achieve my desired “dream” body and look, I have been working hard , doing workouts at night to tone my tummy particularly. However, my bust size shrunk from a C cup to a B and I started to fluster because I never wanted a small bust size and even when I was much younger, I wanted a bigger bust size because it looks so much prettier when you have a nice cleavage when wearing tube dresses or plain singlets as compared to a small petite A cups. (I’m not trying to be mean or what, but I thought that it will look much nicer if I had bigger cup size like how those pretty girls look in those chick flicks like Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, etc)

Eventually, I gave up on my dieting plans and started to gain weight by eating more and soon, I lose my beautiful tummy lines and put on several kilograms. Now, I am not able to gain back my original bust size of 34C, but rather a 32C. I think that this is rather a weird and dangerous size because if I were to lose anymore inches around my bust, I would face problem buying a bra. (Still, I want back my original bust size! Rawr~)

Anyway, I’m now contemplating to start my working out routine again because my body weight is little outrageous and that I feel slightly fat because my tummy don’t look as beautiful and flat as before. But the possibility that my bust size may shrink is preventing me from starting.

What should I do? 

To shed some weight and achieve those flat tummy with pretty lines or maintain my current body size?

There’s always a vast difference between the reality and your fantasy.

It’s alright to dream once in a while but you have to get back on track eventually.

The Best of Times!

*Drumrolls*

Yes! I finally had a meetup with my bff! She’s Siru! The ultimate and officially bff that I have! She’s not the best bff that you would expect, but I guess we kind of are able to “click” and hit off well in a way despite the lack of closeness due to us pursuing different routes of education. Of course, she likes fashion stuffs which I really do and we do have some common topics on and off which I can’t share with you here. Hehehehe! 

ImageI got myself dressed in my new dress from MDScollections! I really love the back of the dress which I couldn’t show you without the help of someone taking photo for me! But still, it does features a nice white crochet top part and the bottom is chiffon and pastel pink! So pretty!

And, I wore my ankle strap nude flats that I bought from Vern’s in Malaysia! It’s a really light-coloured and pastel-looking day with this girly vibe! Feels good to be young! 😉

Image

So, we decided to settle our lunch at this small corner in AMK HUB called Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert. It’s a really small place but rather nice place to chill out and meet your friends!

Image

So here’s the promotion menu! And I ordered one wanton noodle soup and added on a Pomelo Sago and a supposedly carrot cake (Siru ordered wrongly and turns out to be a yam cake. YUCK! I really hate yam cake!)

Image

Here’s the wanton noodle soup! You could opt for dry or soup!

And here’s my verdict: It’s nothing really fanciful or amazing and neither do I feel “wow” about eating it. It’s really light and rather bland and nothing special, for the price of $6.50, I guess it wasn’t really worth it for that bowl of noodles. (THUMBS DOWN!)

Image

Here’s the add-on $1.50 of Pomelo Sago and yam cake!

My verdict?

Well, appearance-wise, it sure looks good but the taste was terrible. I’m not a really a yam cake person so not comments about it.

But the Pomelo Sago was BLEAH! It was really watery and bland with barely much mango smell and taste and the Pomelo? It was more of bitter than fragrance! And Sago? There was none! I guess you would say that I’m really very fickle with food, but dessert wise, like mango sago related stuffs, I’m extremely picky about it because my grandpa owns a dessert shop and he taught me what’s kind of mango sago or dessert is best and how to taste and identify them.

So, a bowl of Pomelo Sago at this shop? Save your money for a $1.50 Ice-cream sundae at Macs!

Image

So, after our meal we went to Bugis Street because I wanted to get a bag and some clothes and she accompanied me so!

Well, I ended up buying a laser cut clutch in black and not a handbag and I bought this black bandage skirt to pair with the coral top I got from MDScollections! Now, I have the perfect outfit!

I’m a happy girl! Best of all, the bandage skirt fits me well and was really versatile with any tops! Wahooo!!! I could buy more bandage skirt in future!

Image

Oh! Did I mentioned that I got my very first LBD?

Ok, little black dress  (LBD) is a must-have in every girl’s wardrobe because it’s so versatile! AND…I finally got ONEEE!

(Ok, I took these photos after reaching home and trying on those loots hoping they would fit because shopping at Bugis Street doesn’t allows you to try the clothes as they are sold cheap.)

Image

And ending off the day with a photo of Siru and me!!!

I didn’t put a single drop or specks of makeup on my face! BUT!!!

Because I feel like myself, make-up-less and most importantly comfortable with her, for she doesn’t looks down on me nor find me ugly with so many eczema scars and freckles on my face (due to SUNTAN! Grrr~) and that matter a lot to me! I can feel confident and at ease with her without worrying about looking ugly at all time!

I really love this bff so much! She’s so nice :))

Post-CNY Outing!

It’s the first day of the study week and I was supposed to be studying for the exam on friday but the group of us decided to give ourself a break first by going to Emrys’s house to “bainian” and to visit her cats followed by a long-awaited ramen meal at Marutama @ Clark Quay and then watching Ah Boys to Men 2!

The trip sounded so exciting right! Plus, everyone of us dressed our best for the day and it felt so cool! Especially entering the Marutama restaurant!

So, we all met at Woodlands MRT on a monday morning and many of them were late…and some were unable to make it which was kind of sad…

ImageA photo of us on the bus to Emrys house!

ImageA funny photo!

Image

Some of them are so scared of the cats and started dashing out of Emrys house!

And did you know that there’s 5 cats!!!

ImageHere’s the boy that frightened them! He’s such a sociable cat!

ImageHere’s my favourite one, Boyboy! She’s so scared of people that she hid behind the mattress!

ImageShe looks like a Garfield!

Image

She hides at a corner in the room!

Image

 It took a hard time for me to wait for BoyBoy to look into the camera!

Image

Her eyes are huge and look so cute!

Image

Then, we went to Marutama!

Image

Another photo!

Image

B & W!

Image

Wet tissues of Marutama! LOL!

Image

 Marutama menu!

ImageAjitsuke Tamago arrived in bowl!

Usually, they would place it in your ramen!

The ajisuke tamago is the best I have eaten so far among many of the ramen shops! I love the hint of japanese soya sauce in their egg yolk where the egg is 60% cooked! Not too runny nor fully cooked! LOVEEE IT!

ImageNext came the Gyoza! It’s steamed and I loved it!

The sauce is actually a mix of japanese soya sauce and chilli oil with a dash of garnishing!

ImageMy ramen arrived! It’s non-spicy because I couldn’t take spice! Haha!

So, the first thing I did was to take a sip of the chicken broth! Relatively nice! But the first sip felt like the soup base of chicken instant noodles, I only got hooked on to it after several sips!

The noodles were rather nice, not to thick nor thick, springy and chewy! LOVELOVE!

Overall, I think that Marutama ramen is worth a visit especially for a dining place for girls’ outing!

ImageThe eight of us took a photo by the friendly staff before we left!

The staff were very friendly and helpful especially in helping us take photos! Teehee!~

ImageAnd we went to watch Ah Boys to Men 2! The movie was awesome and I’ve been wanting to watch the movie for like sooo LONG!!!

ImageAnd this is my outfit of the day!

Did my own french braid, Self-tie back dress in green from MDScollections, MaryJane wedges in black from Code Red!

I enjoyed the outing so much!

Can’t wait for the next one!~

An Authentic Kampong Chinese New Year Experience!

Definitely, it’s authentic with the rooster calling away during sunrise and living in a really big house with our own garden.

So, I had my Chinese New Year this year spent at my grandparents house again. The reason to which why I did not spend my Chinese New Year here, right in Singapore was that I didn’t like being here, I prefer the way of life in Malaysia, relaxing and slow paced, of course, time past faster than you could expect.

I had lots of fun there playing with “explosives” such as fireworks and various types of firecrackers!ImageFireworks!ImageReally pretty firecrackers!

ImageTourists came to our kampong to put firecracker! LOL~

Not only that, I got to take a look at the new terrace house that we had just renovated and managed to experience a high tide due to heavy rainfalls over the past few days! It was fun with the water coming into our house and rising to our knees in our kitchen! FUNNN!

ImageWe had our fence redone!ImageWhat do you think of our new house?ImageHere’s the living room! With a set of PURPLE sofa!Image

Took a picture on my favourite sofa! LOVE~ImageHere’s the high tide!ImageAnd my neighbour’s dog is trap with the rising water!Image

This was the dog who was sniffing at our door on the first day of Chinese New Year!

Image

Stretching himself like a boss!Image

Showing us his butt!ImageThe water rose even higher the next day!

ImageWalalala! It was fun!Image

Our house’s dalmatian had to seek shelter in the house!

Image

This was the vain me trying to take photos!
