Before The End

*squints hard* Omigosh been more than a month since I last blogged!! I'm so sorry T_T as I was caught up in a lot of things, it was pretty hard to edit my photos T3T. Well here's a summary of what's been happening for the last 1 month.

New Workplace
Yeap, changed to a new job after almost 3 years. Pure luck that my resume went around and got a spot at the company. Some people were surprised, some asked me if I've died yet and some were gushing how good it was. Believe me, it isn't. The circumstances aren't as good as what I hoped but if I make it through, it'll make a good addition to my resume :).

Some small perks I enjoy is the free breakfast and being able to travel by LRT. These 2 help me save A LOT. Bad side is, there's no Chinese mixed rice nearby the area so I normally eat VERY little for lunch. I'm still trying to adjust at my workplace, finding myself extremely lethargic after work (despite coming home earlier) and the amount of acne/bumps sprouted ever since I started work isn't funny.

So here's to hoping a year of survival for 2013 *clinks glass with monitor*

Comic Fiesta 2012!!
The long awaited end year event has finally come and go!!! Entering a new workplace and with CF around the corner was the worst time for me. I spent the week before CF sleeping at 3am, waking up at 7am. Come back by 8pm to do house chores then continue working on costumes till the wee hours of the morning. Repeat process x7. Thankfully I didn't plan on having any elaborate costumes for the year or else I'd be dead.

Day 1 Costume 
Character: Juliet Fiammata Asto Capulet 
Series: Romeo x Juliet 
Photo by Misao~

Had so much headache trying to find the right fabric color for her costume and also her wig color!!! Omg damn difficult to find the most accurate wig color! This was the best color I could find that would appeal in photographs >w<. Costume done by Ms Tan's Tailoring.

The iris flowers were another nightmare. I found out no one supplies fake iris flowers in KL so I had to specially order from Taobao. 3 miserable pieces for RM50 >_< Belt was also done last minute due to a miscalculation but glad it turned out well :D

Day 2 Costume
Character: Liu Mao Hsing
Series: Cooking Master Boy aka Chuuka Ichiban
Photo by Oh BengYew

Firstly... I'm sorry I got the hand sign wrong T___T forgive me!!! *bows* I'm just a small boy~~~ Finally able to cosplay this series!!! One of the first anime I watched on AXN together with Saiyuki :D I love love love love Mao but due to lack of resources (picture refs & budget), I had this costume on hold for a VERY long time. I ended up buying 2 types of blue wigs because I can't make up my mind which wig looks better in photos lolol. Thanks to Jared for helping with the Super Chef logo ^w^V. Costume done by Yori Tailoring Services which turned out to be a CF member I knew back in 2009 haha.

Oh fortunately I also manage to find the black 'capalang' wok at Jusco! Perfect for Mao's era XD;;; The only problem is that it was too bulky to be carried around the hall filled with thousands of people during event day @_@. Oh well~ there's always photoshoot~

Cosplaying Mao forced me to dabble with some prop making. I had to make a cleaver since a real one could make children cry 8D. I still hate prop-making because of the mess it makes. I've scratched the family marble table and also accidentally sprayed over condo property *shhhh*. 

Bless4 Bless4 Bless4!!!
This year, Comic Fiesta invited Bless4 to the event! <3 There was a night concert during Day 1 and everyone who attended got the chance to High 5 all the Bless4 members! :D
Photo by Misao!
So happy and thankful to Misao for capturing this moment!!! Usagi also took my photo on Day 2 when I got the chance to meet and greet with the Bless4 members *o* Thank you Belle for giving me the chance to hog your CD for the autograph session! XD

Cosplay Ball
Last event of the year~ Decided to go to see what's all the fuss about :D I'd say it's so-so. If you don't but the early bird price, you'd be crying at what you get haha. Thank god I have old CF member peeps like Hito, RRJ and Silvy or else I'd feel super lonely >_<
Have a picture of me and my MOE ROMEO T3T *jelly*
The Rilakkuma hat was from the Christmas exchange gift lol. The moment I put it on... instant cuteness +1 level OTL. People kept molesting it @__@


So that pretty much summarizes my December. I'm off to a NYE parteh right after work so thought I better churn out this post ASAP before the year ends~ There's still pictures of the gifts and souvenirs that I received during the last 2 weeks but no time to extract from camera @_@. Will upload soon~

My First Sigma Haul!!!

Finally oh finally!!!!! I've been hearing so much about Sigma back in 2010 but the price... omg the price.... As a student, it was waaaay out of my budget and also there were barely any lowyat sprees ordering from Sigma's site. So I continue to read up on all the spazzing and how the quality was on par with MAC brushes. Now after 2 years, I can finally strike it off my wish list :D

Few weeks ago, I came across Luxola, the first online luxury cosmetic and skincare site in South East Asia. They bring in a selection of exclusive products from the most sought out brands! You can spot some popular brands like Beauty Blender, Korress, Sleek Makeup and Sigma which are quite difficult for us Malaysians to get our hands on. The best part is, they ship from Singapore!!! which is a lot less to worry about :D Delivery time is quite fast too between 2-8 business days. As for Sigma, if you do monitor the pricelist in MYR, it's a hell lot cheaper compared to the prices on lowyat forums! :D

Luxola had a sweet deal whereby there's a free gift for pruchase of Sigma products above RM125. Plus that sweet deal I bought from Living Social hehehe I immediately placed my order together with May's :D

So Ends Another Chapter.....

The last time I had such a painful ending was back in 2007. Today marks my last day at my office for my first job. Amazing how fast time flies @_@ and how painful it was to submit my resignation. So much confused feels but I knew it was something I HAD to do. Will definitely miss everyone and all the silly stuff we did T_T.

It was a good 2 years and 9 months T__T
My new job will be based in KL.... will definitely miss the PJ yamcha sessions, visiting Char Siew Pao, cloth hunting in Kamdar, and also the Selangor holidayssssss :( First 6 months will definitely be a struggle for me but if I can pull through, it'll be very worth it! 

GAR Kitty and last words from colleagues <3
Last piece of advice from boss!
Definitely learned a lot from the hells of Hagley & Hoyle! Thank you to everyone for the guidance and patience with me! I will try my best not to forget them 8D;;;

K.I.S.S.ed by Kinerase®

Little A, there was once, a girl by that name,
Whose niche for adventure drove them insane,
She had lived for her heart, for that was no doubt,
And whatever she wondered,
She thought with a pout.....

Caturday Revamp

Hi all~ This blog will be on a short hiatus as I've decided to revamp it :D. I planned to only revamp next year but due to certain events, I've decided to speed up the process~ Do watch out for the next entry! Hopefully it'll be up by Saturday if there's no hitches :D

Dogathon 2012

Dogathon is back again! It's going to be a yearly visit for me XD The only place I can go molest all the dogs to my heart's content! <3 This year, Dogathon was held at Bukit Ekspo, UPM serdang. A joint effort between The Students' Society of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and The Zoologico Club of University Putra Malaysia. One of the biggest dog events in Malaysia where you can get all the pet therapy you need =P

PS: The following pictures are a mixture of mine and some taken from Swing's album. The pretty pictures are hers ;_;
This year there's a Halloween theme :D All dogs require a full checkup before entering the field. I guess it's practical training for the veterinary faculty? =P
First up, we spotted a VERY beautiful Alaskan Malamute!!!! To my surprise, it belonged to SPCA O_O. 

LOOK AT ITTTTTTT *____* So handsome!
Beautiful shorty Shetland Sheepdog 8D
Red Husky XD
More Huskies! <3
A fluffy Spitz 8D Looks like a nice foot stool *kena piak*
Loads of Golden Retrievers too :D This one had one of the most softest fur I've ever felt <3
Both are poms! <3
HUSKIES! Huskies everywhere XD
This year there was a lot more Huskies O_O and turns out, they were all from the same Husky community so every year they gather for a picnic. Pick a Husky and molests lol, all in many sizes and colors lined up XD;;

And then.... we found THE Husky to squeal over for the rest of the day!!!


Looks like a teddy bear!!!!! According to the owner, they never trim the fur O_O. Nobita looks like it's wearing a fur hat hehehehe <3

And these 2 Huskies here look like twins :) never got to find out if they are or not haha
Fattest dog I've seen, EVER D:
That goldie could barely support it's own weight D:. Dogathon this year was very muddy that's to the PMS weather, my shoes were caked with mud T_T. Most of the dogs this year seem quite camera shy T3T or maybe I'm just so slow in taking their pics.... Anyways, if you adore dogs and can't keep one, this is the place you should visit for your 'pet therapy'. Seeya in Dogathon 2013!!! >o</

Post-Halloween Shoutout!

Hello guysssss :D hope you had a Happy Halloween dressing up and scaring the shit out of people! So many places were having their own Halloween parties. I attended one of my friend's Halloween party at her place but sadly didn't dress up since I came straight from work, and the evening rain dampened my spirits :(. Still, I was curious to see how the rest would dress up~ :D

Carved pumpkins!
Part of the decorations by Shio and Potter! I feel so guilty for not dressing up especially with so much effort from Shio and Potter in decorating the whole house T_T

The 2 hosts: Shio (creepy witch there) and Potter (mummy in bling specs)
Yoke Lai also unleashed her bishie potential! With a cute fluffy spider on her head~ <3

Some Halloween themed finger food
There was also pumkin carving sessions for those who wished to try~
Jared and his rotting skin?
Rest of the group! You can see the rest of the Halloween decorations! Cool right? :D
Note to self: Should plan for Halloween costume early T_T. Thank you Shio and Potter for the invite!!! I shall dress up should there be a next time! XD

PS: Some of the pictures are taken by Raz :D so yes credits to him~

OnlyBeauty - Your One Stop Freebie Site

Oh yes you saw that right, FREEBIES. I've always love the idea 'Try Before You Buy' that was implemented by Kiehl's whereby customers can take home samples of the product for a proper trial before buying the full size product. It makes the customer feel good when they invest in a full size product knowing that it will definitely give results!

After I was introduced to Kiehl's concept, I started looking for samples to try before buying the full size product as I had very sensitive and acne prone skin :D Unfortunately not many brands carry the same ritual. Either the brand doesn't carry samples or suffer under the scrutiny of the salesperson for the next 15 minutes if you request for one >_<. Others would use the samples as an extra bonus for their customers if they purchase anything. I mostly get the scrutinized.... can't help it if I don't doll myself in skin tight clothes and heels when I visit the counter =_=. Feel paiseh asking for sample when they give me that look ;__; but I don't want to pay RMXX and not get the results I want.......

Now thanks to a group of people who understand those concerns of mine (and tons of other females XD), I introduce to you OnlyBeauty an online beauty portal that provides the latest beauty information, promotions, product workshops and yes, FREEBIES~!!!!

OnlyBeauty's site. They've went through a revamp comparing to the last time I visited the site. Feels a lot of more user friendly now :P
Freebies listed for the day :D
Just sign up on their website and you'll be one step closer to getting those freebies! Of course, nothing comes free without a little effort~ Once you've registered an ID on OnlyBeauty, you can apply for your desired sample by clicking on the 'Apply Now' button. Then just kick back and stalk the Successful Applicant List, praying hard that you'll get the sample you applied for! 

No need to spend time and money to travel and ask for sample,

No more bottles of dusty skincare bottles rotting at the corner of your room,

and best of all.....

No more suffering from the judging glares of the salesperson ಠ_ಠ

Check out the participating brands from OnlyBeauty! Not only they give out freebies for drugstore products, they also have counter product samples!!!! hohohohoho~

Havaianas 50th Anniversary (50 Anos)

The renowned Brazilian flip-flop brand Havaianas marked it's 50th year this 2012. Quite an accomplishment for a brand that has only been selling flip flops XD. To celebrate their 50 years of success, Havaianas launched their limited edition of flip flops. This limited edition 50th Anniversary pair is a tribute to Havaianas original design featuring 2 coloured soles and baby blue straps. Only 50,000 pairs of this model were produced and all proceeds will be donated to UNICEF to support its projects in Brazil.

During the celebration period, Havaianas Malaysia organized sort of a lucky draw where they had about 80 Havaianas 50 Anos pairs to be given away :D. All you had to do was fill up a form and you'll be in the running to win Havaianas merchandise!

Honestly I don't own any Havaianas flip flops as they're quite pricey. I do own a pair of Ipanema and it already feels like my wallet is crying blood D: So thank you Havaianas Malaysia for the lovely gift >w< who knows you guys could be converting me into a Havaianas addict once I put these babies on hehe~

Collected my prize today :D
Specially designed box for a special pair~~~
Tadaa! :D
2 different sole colours to represent the first Traditional Havaianas :3
With the pin of the year they started.
Oh gosh now I'll never dare wear these out since they're limited edition!!!! TAT *gets smacked in the head*

Tosaya Japanese Restaurant @ Taman Midah, Cheras

My next expedition brought me to a Japanese restaurant nestled near the rows of hawker centres in Taman Midah. Really, I never expected a Japanese Restaurant to be here since the next road has a string of hawker centers until my friend recommended me this place to meet up for dinner.

The front of the restaurant :D 
From the front door, it doesn't look like your average Sushi King restaurant. The front is hard to miss since to Tosaya word is kinda big :D You'll see this the moment you turn into the junction.

The interior that greets us at the entrance. Oooohhh look some familiar faces! :D
My company for the evening. Misao missing from the picture cuz he was late T_T
Tables separated by dividers for more privacy. 
Japanese patterned bowls, cups and teapots decorated on the walls along the cashier~
Main reason we came to this place was for the All You Can Eat Wagyu Beef!!! Ohohohoho You can choose between sukiyaki or shabu-shabu to cook your beef. 2 person for only RM88 for All You Can Eat WAGYU Beef heheh why not!! My doctor asked me to eat more beef since I had low iron count so I thought it'll be a good opportunity to pig out :D. Sadly luck wasn't on our side as the waitress told us that their stock of beef is kinda low so the Beef Buffet is Out of Stock for now...... *SOBSSSSS*

All You Can Eat Wagyu spread on the menu *sobs*
End up we had to order something else *sniffs*. I picked something from the bento sets. We saw that there were some stuffs wrapped in bacon so decided to give it a go.

Char Siu Ramen
Enoki Bacon. Enoki mushrooms wrapped with bacon
My Salmon with Chicken bento set
Junnie's Beef Mayo bento set. 
Quails egg wrapped with Bacon and also some Chicken + Onions
Presentation of the sets are not bad and surprisingly filling despite the small salmon piece I had ._. The chicken given in the salmon set was a bit tough and tasted almost like the Karage chicken at Marufuku (of course... Marufuku is better sad to say). As for the bacon wrapped quails egg, you can probably see in the photos that it's not very appetizing.... it isn't and the bacon is VERY small ._.

I find the pricing a little steep for what I got so far. Bento sets range from RM23+ onwards. My Salmon set was RM29 if not mistaken and I'm not that happy for the tough chicken in that set. Even the bacon wrapped items was about RM6.

The restaurant is kinda small, can't really cater to big groups. I recommend you better make a reservation before coming over especially during peak periods the place can get a bit crowded. Ambiance was nice but the crowd that was there when I was dining was horrible as there were 2-3 kids running around screaming their heads off so I sent them a glare to shut them up.... 

Even though I've got quite some complaints over the food but I'm still keen on trying their beef set hoho~ 

Ended the night with some sake :D
