So where's Cheebs?

Again another hiatus from me... I should really try blogging on the go soon... Anyways, here's just to show what I've been up to.

Attended C2AGE 2013
I went for HELP's ACG college event held at their CAT campus near Chan Sow Lin. It was the most horrible 2 hours of my life.... not only because I had my shitty ass to a shitty event but my sole purpose going there was to make a transaction, only to have the other party not showing up because... HER PHONE DIED likewut????

So there's me, rotting away, waiting for 2 stupid hours feeling like a fool at an event that's as boring as fuck unless you're a Reika stalker than yea you might go there and get an orgasm. What did Cheebs do for the 2 hours? Well she ended up having cool shots of her reaching up the ceiling of the event hall.
So much cooler than my own cosplay shots LOL

Finally have Insta!
I took over my dad's iPhone because he got an iPhone 5 for FREE lol. This is my second Apple gadget after the iBook G4 (yes that's ancient) and I downloaded Instagram the moment I got it HAHAHA. You're more than welcome to follow me *w*V. I'll normally post random stuff, don't worry, I won't post my daily meals up yet unless I'm eating at good places lol! XD

Expect lots of iPhone/Insta photos on my blog... cuz it's easier than bringing my digital camera around XD;;

Learning to Sew
Omg yes you read that right! I'm learning how to sew for my next cosplay project XD;; and it involves a lot of pink and yellow~ I don't think I'll be learning to sew my other costumes..... after being exposed to how sewing works... I can honestly say I don't think I can have the patience and time to make my own costumes...
There's so much left to do, hope I can make it in time uhuhuhuhu T__T. I still need to do some painting and have the wings done :S

New Discoveries
In the last 48 hours,  was doing some research when I saw a snippet of Senki Zesshō Symphogear. It was a performance on one of their songs Gyakkou no Flugel and it looked very promising *_*. The anime's similar to Macross Frontier so if you liked macross, go give SZS a watch :D. For those who are curious, here's the vid that sold me :)

Why I Need A Pair of Havaianas

I'm a flip-flop person ever since I suffered an injury from wearing heels. Now I can't wear heels otherwise, I'll feel a sharp stabbing pain up my waist so I wear flip-flops to just about anywhere.

I wear flip-flops to work
I wear flip-flops when I go for a date
I wear flip-flops to go shopping
I wear flip-flops to the beach
I wear flip-flops when I go travelling out-station

Ok ok... I think you get the drift haha! I wear flip flops to just about anywhere unless I go hiking or to the gym. Biggest problem about flip-flops... is that they don't last long since I wear them everywhere. Either the strap snaps or the sole gets worn out.
Created more than half a century ago, Havaianas has truly become an essential accessory for summer and throughout the years, they've turned a simple flip-flop into a fashion necessity, gracing their way to top fashion magazines. The simplest product made with a secret Brazilian rubber formula, Havaianas became known for being butter-soft, bouncy, flexible and durable. Forty nine years later, Havaianas have turned into a world-wide phenomenon, and the most successful product made in Brazil.
Havaianas store in Pavilion! It's one brand you don't see them posing with their product with a model :P
Feels like I'm walking into a candy store since they're so colourful haha

I've heard so much about Havaianas butter-soft sole but I've yet to try it >w<. Here's to hoping I can get myself a pair in time for the spa party!

Reason 1 - Buttery Sole for my Hardworking Feet
Havaianas is well known for being butter soft, bouncy, soft and durable. Sounds pretty much heaven for my feet as I walk and stand a lot most of the time. Walking on Malaysian roads is a pain especially if you don't have good shoes. My current flip-flop soles are already worn so I often slip especially when the pavements slant downwards..... I have yet to fall flat on my face...... note... YET.

Reason 2 - Comfort with Style!
Havaianas continues to grow with its wide variety of styles and colors. If you've seen their ads, Havaianas ads are always colourful and cheeky :P Feels like a young and hip brand *_*b

Havaianas designs throughout the years
My favorite would be the Slim and High styles. Slim because the straps are thinner so they look more dainty on my feet. High style because they're very practical when walking in Malaysia especially during the rainy season *laughs*
Havaianas in many styles and colors

With so many celebrities wearing Havaianas, goes to show how comfortable and stylish these flip-flops are! My current flip-flops are just plain black and I wear them more often than all my other shoes combined lol. That is just how much I rely on flip-flops >< Most of the time I even wear flip-flops to bloggers events *malu* Ask anyone and they'll tell you 95% of the time wear flip-flops.

Reason 3 - To Match My Wardrobe for the Spa Party! :P
From what I gather, the spa party will be all pink and purple. I'm not a pink person so I tried mix and matching earlier today to see what I can put together for the Spa Party :D

Omg what's missing?! >3<
Feels weird wearing a bathrobe to a Spa Party, cuz I normally wear nothing (ok maybe a swimsuit underneath) lol so thought of finding a matching outfit to put together orz. I'm no fashionista so you're most welcome to hit me with rotten tomatoes if I look bad T_T

I'll be going with pastel blue to the event but yours truly doesn't have the right footwear other than her worn out black pasar malam flip fops!! >A<

Havaianas comes in an assortment of styles and colors to fit any occasion!
Browsed through the Havaianas website and I see quite a few types that would be perfect for the event *_* ohohohoho
Slim Royal in Acqua
Slim Illusion in Mint Green
Or even a simple one would look lovely like.....
The Slim Crystal Dragonfly!!!
Omg this is one of my favorites! So simple yet so beautiful! As you can see, I'm a sucker for their embellishments hahaha! 

So please Fairy Godmother Havaianas *_* grant me a pair if you may and convert me into the Havaianas addiction like Megan Fox *_* Did you know, she has over 100 pairs of Havaianas???? All in different color and styles lol.

A Month of Accomplishment :D

Month of May has been quite a productive month both in my personal life and at work. It has been a stressful week at work and at the same time I've complete 2 very delayed shoots that took me 5-6 months of shoot prep due to unforeseen circumstances.

Romeo x Juliet
This was one of the recent shoots done last week. Debuted the costume during Comic Fiesta 2012 but had so much problem setting a time and date to shoot since everyone had different schedules. It was one of my most satisfying shoots as there's quite a lot of shots that can be used and also plenty of omake shots :D Will be doing an in-progress post about it soon :D

We wrapped everything up in 3 hours! That's quite a productive shoot haha

New Prince of Tennis
Organizing a team of 20 people is a pain but worth it orz. This was one of the longest shoot I had. We started in the morning 7am at Cyberjaya for the first shoot then moved to Selayang for the evening shoot. The weather was horrible so sad to say we didn't have much shots that can be used :( nevertheless I had a really fun time with the geng as we tried out some new ideas.

Spa Party? Oh Yes Me Needs One! ;_;

Ever since I joined my new agency life, the last couple of months has been a rough road for me. Everyday I wake up at 7am, reach work by 8.30am, clock in about 12 hours average and reaching home by 11pm and if I'm 'lucky' enough, continue working after a shower then sleeping by 1am (if there's no work).

Me right now at 2.30am still working on a presentation for a 9.30am meeting....
My unhealthy hours plus my unhealthy diet has left me fat and a zombie faced *points down*

Pic credits: Mashable.com
Bah as though I would put my own face there. My face would probably scare the pants out of my readers so here's a grumpy cat that reflects my mood =3=....... and then I saw Butterfly Project's June activity that just stole my heart....

A spa party for members of The Butterfly Project! This is the biggest spa party I've seen that has so many collaborations with many well-known brands!
  • Posh! Nail Spa - Enjoyed my last experience and I'm dying to go back and let people tend to me <3
  • Idea Food Solution - It's not a party without food :D
  • Fotobox - I've never experience fun photobooths, other than when I go take my passport picture LOL so am really excited to find out what will be in store for the Spa Party *_*
Idea on the experience with fotobox. I hope photos will be printed for us to keep for memories *_* (if I can score the invite of course hehe)
  • Tres Chic Party Planner - Coincidentally, I attended my friend's baby shower just a few days ago which was also organized by Tres Chic! and I must say they did a lovely job :D  felt like I was attending a cosy tea party.
Part of the party deco by Tres Chic at my friend's baby shower. Check out more of their  party deco's on their Facebook! :) Can't wait to see how they will decorate Posh! Nail Spa~
Pic Credits: Tres Chic Facebook
  • The Body Shop Malaysia - A major beauty brand that is a retailer of natural products. I've been a fan of their brushes and also recently, the Deep Sleep pillow mist that I got from Bag of Love :D 
  • so Soft. so JOHNSON'S® - Oh my, I never knew they re-branded themselves until recently *ashamed*. I still remember using their body lotion and their no more tears shampoo as a kid :P. 
  • Havaianas Malaysia - Only the most comfortable pair of flip-flops in the world!!! I had a pair myself.... until my mum took it ;_;.... here's to hoping to get another pair soon. *prays*
  • Pink N Proper - bringing you only the trendiest brands and items found in the UK. I can see myself trying their clothes then posing at the Fotobox like a diva *_*
  • TT Mask - I've heard so many good things about their mask and missed out the great deals attheir booth during IBE!
  • OnlyBeauty - Would they be giving samples during the party? hoho 8D
With that many collaborations.... WHO WOULD MISS THIS? ( ಠ.ಠ) There shouldn't even be a reason for me to miss this awesome possum event! I've seen how Tammy works so hard finding sponsors and I've enjoyed attending her events. If anything... there's 10 partners there, I'm expecting 10 TIMES the fun together with 50 of the lucky beauties - Reason 1 for anyone NOT to miss this event.

I look forward to the thought of being able to escape from work, from the house and being pampered on hand and feet (maybe body and face too? *grins*). The idea of relaxing and catching up with people while being taken care of instead of taking care of people for a just a moment sounds heavenly (´∀`)♡ which gives me another reason not to miss out on this Spa Party  ☆~(ゝ。∂)

Getting an invite to this Spa Party would be a good excuse for me to catch up with bloggers :) There's only 4 weekends a month and I have to split it between family, work (no shit), cosplay, CF, chores, friends, boyfie, blogging and the list just goes on. I don't go to blogger events that much and often when I meet the bloggers at another event, it feels like I'm meeting new people all over again since I hardly know much about them ><. So this here is my initiative to try and go meet more bloggers at the next upcoming event! >w<b

Pretty please?
Did I make any sense? I hope I made enough sense.... cuz I typed this at 4am in the morning and now my eyes are too heavy to try and comprehend this whole entry.... so sorry there's too much nonsense ;_;

La Senza Body Kiss Exclusive Party

Hey peeps~ La Senza's most comfortable range is back again! This time in 7 new colors, perfect to welcome the summer heat that's hit us recently. It's getting almost impossible to sleep with this heat @_@ what more trying to focus on your daily activities in the day time.

I was fortunate enough to receive an invite from The Butterfly Project (on the day of the event itself HAHA), thank you Tammy! *o* I've never been to any of La Senza's events before so I was really excited :D

La Senza, KLCC outlet
To start off, Wave gave us a short brief on the correct way to measure and determine which bra size is suitable for us. The measurements serve as a guide when you pick your bra but by the end of the day the size deffer depending on the effect you want to achieve. 

Wave giving us a talk on how to measure our bust :D

I found it pretty nifty that La Senza has their own measurement cards to match their bra sizes so we can measure and determine for ourselves~ We we're then paired up for a very intimate ice-breaking session where we have to help measure our partner's bust size haha. Very interesting ice-breaking session and turns out me and my partner are the same size lolol. Does that make us bosom buddies? *gets smacked*

Paired up for ice-breaking
Next up was Ms Cynthia who gave us a brief introduction on the Body Kiss range. This year, the Body Kiss range comes in 7 new fashion color choices to match any personality. There's summer colors, neon colors, each comes with lace or diamond embellishments. This sexy bra comes with a cushioned underwire for a more comfortable fit and provides a Level 2 push up giving you that natural looking cleavage :D The Body Kiss bra range is priced starting from RM149 each.

Beautful summer colors <3 Body Kiss range brought to you by La Senza.
La Senza's Body Kiss range. They have leopard prints too!
Body Kiss bra's comes with matching panties in smooth or lace options~
After that, we joined in for a little game with La Senza. The task was to hunt down lollipops that the staff had  hidden in the drawers containing the Body Kiss range. The winner would then be treated to a 30-second shopping spree at La Senza!!! Super awesome reward I tell you!!! It's a pity I couldn't win it >w< There were a lot of drawers slamming for the next 30 seconds as bloggers were all fighting to grab the most lollipops. There was a tie breaker at the end and Farah was the lucky winner for the night.

Sarah, the Marketing Executive of La Senza together with Farah, the lucky girl and her lucky 4 lollipops
Rest of us didn't go back empty handed, we got to take home a Body Kiss bra of our choice! <3 Thank you so much La Senza!!! *w* I've posted my Body Kiss bra here.... somewhere in this entry.... haha :P 

We ended the night with dinner at The Apartment courtesy of La Senza. I was only expecting a normal dinner but OH MY!!! they've even set up for the night! Check out the romantic atmosphere!!

Table laid with decorations and our headgear for the night *laughs*
The La Senza staff were seated together with us so we got a chance to mingle with them which I found it to be a very good move from La Senza management :D It's very rare to be able to get the chance to mingle and personally give our thanks to the organizers.... so thank you again La Senza for organizing this exclusive party! And thank you again to The Butterfly Project for the opportunity :)

April's Bag of Love

April's Bag of Love goes green in honour of Earth Month. Thought since it was about going green, I took the little pouch to the hill behind my house for a little photo session :D

This bag is made of bleach-free canvas and the little tag inside is made of recycled non-woven material. Though delicate, this bag is extremely heavy duty. The products for this month's bag are either of natural origins or contribute some way or another to the environment.

A total of 5 deluxe samples + 1 sachet + 1 voucher :3
From left to right

1. Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Shampoo (200ml for RM88)
Interesting enough, this is the first time I've seen a shampoo in an aluminium can. Phyto's products are all packed in aluminium or glass packaging to reduce the use of preservatives in its production. The mini bottle can be used to plant a seed or refill with your own skincare and bring along during your travels. Will most likely be giving my mum the bottle once I'm done using it hehe. Phyto is available at Robinsons The Gardens, Sephora and selected Sasa and Parksons Shopping Centre.

2. The Body Shop Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist (100ml for RM59)
Been wanting to get my hands on this when Body Shop first released the product. Don't know why I didn't get it haha. Just spray this on your pillow or anywhere on your body before sleep and you're in for a peaceful night. It has a special blend of relaxing ingredients from jujube date and Community Trade camomile which helps balance and soothe the mind. I haven't had a chance to try this out yet as I always hve a time that I have to wake up to... and I'm afraid that with this mist.... I might wake up late ;A;

3. Nuxe Brightening BB Cream SPF30/PA++ (30ml for RM120)
This is Nuxe's first BB cream . Formulated with white crocus, daisy, green tea flower, mallow, borage oils, and natural mineral pigments (silica), it works wonders to provide light coverage for the skin and at the same time, brighten, moisturise and soothe it. I'm not a big fan of BB cream as it makes my skin reaaaalllllyyyyyy oily and greasy but I'll give this a try I suppose.

4. Burt Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuaçu Butters Body Lotion (170ml for RM62.80)
I'm one who rarely uses body lotion because often I feel like wiping them off on the blankets XD;; This body lotion absorb quickly leaving the skin baby soft and smooth up to 24 hours. This product has the softening properties of cocoa and cupuaçub butters and nourishing botanical moisturisers from sunflower and olive oils.

5. Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturising Cream (50ml for RM271)
This refreshing moisturising cream provides an anti-pollution protection to the skin, while leaving it soft, relaxed and protected. With 85% of its ingredients derived from natural origins and with no parabens or mineral oils, your skin will exude beauty from within. I fell in love with Decleor products when I went for my first facial at Is'belle, Subang Parade. The facial session left my face super smooth for months! I'll definitely be using this product for special occasions (before shoots *coughs*) or when I'm travelling. Mi Mi has also included a facial voucher allowing Bag of Love members to enjoy Decleor's Signature Aromaplasty Facial at only RM98! (NP: RM230) Sadly I don't have the time to go enjoy the facial this month T_T. Such a pity to burn the offer :(

6. Definite Contour Brush (RM88)
Made of super-soft, high-grade goat hair, this brush blends powder effortlessly over the face for a smooth and professional finish. Just what I was looking for! :P It was the only thing missing from my brush collection hehe. Also FYI, Definite brushes are now exclusive to Bag of Love. They used to have 2 outlets in Sunway Pyramid but now you can't get it anywhere. Mi Mi has hinted that they have more Definite brushes coming soon so do subscribe to Bag of Love!

I love all the products but my favorites would go to the Definite brush and also The Body Shop mist. There's so much goodies stuffed in a tiny bag, I can't wait to see what the May bag would bring :D Speaking of May bags... Mi Mi has posted a hint for May's Bag of Love theme

May's bag is themed 'Best of Beauty' hence the luxurious looking bag *_* Some of the brands that will be in the bag are Crabtree & Evelyn, Calvin Klien, Elizabeth Arden and Keratase hohohohoho~ I'm so psyched!!! >w< Are you?

Unzipping Tea Party with Bag of Love & Delectable Su

ARGH! 3 weeks delay to update this! Damn I'm a horrid blogger T_T. Right after this event, I had so much work piling up not to mention I had a shoot early May so had to put my blogging on halt. But now that I'm back (hopefully long enough to churn out a few posts), would like to share about the last event I went which was an UNZIPPING event hehehe. No it didn't involve me or any other human unzipping lol.

Late April, I scored an invite to be one of the first few people to unzip Bag of Love's April bag :D. There were 2 sessions with 15 people for each sessions held at Delectable Su. 

Arrived at Delectable Su to find the area sealed off for us *_*
One of the rare times that people arrived much earlier :P Guess everyone's so excited for the tea party *w*. 

Tea set up for the party :D

The dessert table that greeted the girls *_* OMIGOSH look at all those desserts!!! So many of us and only 15 of us haha I didn't touch much of the desserts cuz I'm not one to eat such sweet foods so early in the morning ><. 

Pusheen: CAKEEEEE. Annnddddd it jumped straight on the dessert table. 
Being bloggers, we were all swarming the dessert table and snapping photos for a good hour. No one dared to touch the food for some unknown reason haha. Maybe scared other people haven't got their shots? Or desserts too pretty to eat? XD

Caramel peanuts~
All day suckers and chocolate mousse cake in cute teacups~ I took the lollipop home and gave it to my  bf's maid haha

Decorated cupcakes. Butterfly for Butterfly Project group and the heart shape represents Bag of Love :D
Plenty just for 15 eh? That's not the end of it. On our tables where was also a tea time set with various pastries, savories and cakes for us to sample. 

Pusheen likes it~
Bloggers seated at the table to rest and wait for our VIP guest :D

Meet Mi Mi, a self professed beauty addict, formerly a beauty writer for some of the biggest beauty magazines in Malaysia and now the person behind the Bag of Love. I was surprised to find out she's a mum to two kids! OAO She's so bubbly yet humble as she spoke about the Bag of Love, telling us her difficulties when preparing the bags while sharing how much she enjoys what she's doing. After her speech, Santa Tammy came out and gave us each an April edition Bag of Love (wheee!!!).

Using my skirt as a backdrop hoho~
Tadaa! featuring April's Bag of Love! The bag is made of bleach-free canvas and the Bag of Love tag inside is made from recyclable non-woven material. Don't be fooled by how fragile it feels as Mi Mi said this bag is quite heavy duty :D

The girls instagramming, posting up their beauty bags

Oh wow!! Look at all those products!!! My mind immediately registered Body Shop, Decleor, Burts Bees and Definite! So happy that there's a Definite brush in the bag! :D Last month, it was a cheek brush, this time it's a contour brush which is a cosplayer's must have hehe! I was considering to buy a contour brush but not anymore as the Definite brush in April's Bag of Love is in FULL SIZE! :D More about the products in the next post!

TT__TT Thank you The Butterfly Project for working hard to organize the event for us girls! And thank you Delectable Su AND Bag of Love for such a wonderful tea time session :3 For those who were drolling at the food thinking they missed out, fear not as the tea time you saw on the table is part of Delectable Su's Tea Time Treats which is available everyday from 2pm - 6pm at only RM15 for 1, RM28 for 2 person

Do check out Delectable Su's album for more mouth-watering pictures of her Tea Time Treats! Plus if you pre-book your tea session, you'll receive a fun little Delectable fabric button~ :3

Crap... didn't realize a hair on my skirt there >_>

Just as I was already walking on clouds with my new Bag of Love, Delectable Su surprised us all by giving us a set of Delectable fabric buttons for keeps! Omigoshhhhhh <3 Many thanks to Su!!! <3 

Happy little girl together with Mi Mi~
A special post about April's Bag of Love will be up next~ In the mean time, if you're keen to join in the fun, do join The Butterfly Project community. I heard there's an exciting project in June coming up~~~ :)
