e-bay is full of effing e-diots

seriously, i am SO mad pissed off with ebay sellers i want to scream. the other item i bidded on and won a week ago, i messaged the seller to ask if he could priority ship the item to my friend who returned to SG from USA last wednesday, and this seller never replied me. and NOW he messages me asking when i am intending to pay and if he doesnt hear from me today he will report me to ebay. and of course my friend is no longer in USA already so i have to find someone else to ship to because the item can only be shipped within the States. like HELLO! i messaged him and he didnt reply me!!!!!!!!!!!!! i need some pissed off emoticon to use to express my current agitated and pissed-off mood.

Garfi-I Said "NO!!!", originally uploaded by E.L.A.

this photo is a pretty good representation of my inner monster roaring in fury right now.

and of course dear dawn chan (the other ebay seller) hasnt replied me in like two days. have just sent her another email informing her that i am about to report her to ebay if she does not reply in another 24 hours. what's up with ebay and idiots. oh wait, they both start with the phonetic "E".


ok, done with the daily rant. ebay has unleashed the bitch-from-hell in me, and the ruffled feathers are showing up here, pardon.

but moving on to happier things, (again), i finally managed to satiate my craving for swedish meatballs at IKEA today, amidst throngs of families with their kids doing their furniture shopping. i think i picked a bad day to go there but then again it's probably that crowded on weekends anyway.


chiffon V back dress,
necklace, sputnikmuffin
clutch/purse, charles&keith

here's an idea of the crowd.

"baby, help me take pictures please!"

"ok you can stop taking my pictures already everyone's staring!"

took us ages to find a table (then we had to find chairs) but we were two happy (sitting) ducks eventually.

and we ate aloooooot. 15 meatballs, 1 fish fillet & 6 wings between the two of us, including all the potatoey and coleslaw sides. speaking of which, i seriously, seriously need to diet. was trying on the nude eyelet frock just now and the skirt seemed to have a defect behind so i asked Gina to snap a picture of me in it from the back and OMG. i am not kidding when i say that i looked freaking ginormously fat in the shot :( you can blame it on the angles and bad bra (fats showing and all) or whatever, but something has to be there already for it to photograph out right? hai. and CNY is just about two months away! noooooo. i think i shall go jogging/swimming over the weekend.

my lovely, lovely, juicy tender meatballs.

hai i think we were too greedy. so super bloated and full TTM after the meal. but everything tasted soo good. my after-dinner tummy looked about 6 months preggy, was proudly showing off my baby bump to YZ....

and camwhoring while waiting for the call cab to make up for all the make up-less pictures (pun unintended) i have really bad eye bags/ dark circles! :(


and just because this is my narcisstic blog,

more pictures of myself!!! :D :D :D my fringe is totally getting into the way of my left eye. cannot stand it, need a hair cut soonish. and i tried to draw my eyebrows back but i just look very fierce now. (not ANTM kind of fierce, but y'know, FIERCE....)


i actually made more lava cake today and took some making-of pictures already. will post up the recipe next entry for those who're keen! dont worry, it's mad easy to do!! tastes so good too.


and i am totally stressing out over my choir concert ticket sales now. i need to sell TWENTY!!!!!! tickets and my only confirmed ticket order now is (guess who?) the one and only BF.

please please people, i implore you all to come and attend my lovely wonderful fantabulous concert on the 13 Dec!!! plus guess what, i'm having my very first THREE LINE SOLO OMG in one of the pieces!!!! woooooo exciting. come and watch please. i promise you will be BLOWN AWAY!! i am selling discounted tickets for $25 from the original price of $30! T-T please come if you love me. i bribe u all with chocolate lava cakes. okay? OKAYY???

it's not going to be some boring dry fall-asleep choir concert because we're doing EXCITING pieces! a light mass accompanied by four wonderful jazz musicians (i love it!!!!) and many beautiful pieces in Lithuanian language. we even have a special guest conductor Vytautas Miškinis all the way from Lithunia! it will be an AMAZING concert!!! can't wait cant wait!

PLEASE!! contact me for ticket orders!!!

oooh and i just have to share this particular video with y'all,

cos you know why. every time i appear in the video, I AM IN BC CLOTHES OMG. scary right. spot me!

walao crappy day

hello i went to this shop at AMK to do eyebrow threading today, and u know i'm VERY particular about my brows but i'm also a risk taker so i just anyhow-ly walked into this big shop and asked to do my brows and i thought the beautician seemed experienced, but in the end i ended up with weird brows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hai now i have to draw my brows everyday or something til it grows out wth.

see how the front of my brows disappeared wtf balding eyebrows ): HAI. damn weird hai. you dunno how sad i am now. and sorry no make up again.


plus the ebay seller hasn't replied me since last night and i sent her a mail at bloody 4am til now no reply :( i am really quite pissed off with her!! is it MY fault that she overlooked the scratches? no right? >: ( see her emails. she sounds SO unapolegetic like it's my fault i got sent a defective item. am seriously going to report to ebay if she doesnt reply me in the next 24 hours. and DEMAND a refund from her. WTF.

and pictures of the scratches/marks on the purse

blardi upset about it :(


nvm, let's move on to happier things,
like i made chocolate molten lava cake today and it was SUCCESS. oozing chocolatey goodness.

topped with ice cream for maximum pleasure. YZ & i polished off two of it, no sweat.


happy thing #2, mailbox goodies!
my nude pullover from Vel and necklace from sputnikmuffin

<3 the nude pullover doesnt want to stay in place though -.- keeps on riding up my shoulders!

love the maple leaf & dog tag pendant. simple and elegant.

and vintage heartcharm also from sputnikmuffin! SO cute!

am still waiting for HVV parcel. thought it might come today but nothing :( and tmr's PH too, so no mail tmr... boo.
well anyway, have a good PH tomorrow everyone! love PHs that make a long weekend. woooo. hopefully the rest of my long weekend will be considerably happier than today. boring entry i know. if i post up anymore makeup-less pictures of myself i think nobody want to read this blog already.

christmas come early

yesterday, i got home and saw four parcels for me.
three containing my new dresses, and the last one parcel, shipped via USPS from the US of A!!! omgbbq!!!

it came in like, 4 days! mad fast!

ripped the parcel apart in a hurry, to unveil my self-bought christmas present (HAHA.)

my pretty pretty Kate Spade! <3

but guess what. there's a huge scratch on the front wtf ): and it's freaking obvious cos of the patent leather!
hai. but its sooooo gorgeoussss whyyyyyyyyy!


gorgeous or not you tell me?? was planning to carry this for CNY... (all decked out in red...)

anyways. emailed the seller already. hopefully i can get an exchange. best case scenario. worse case scenario, have to take it as it is if no exchange/refund/discount is offered. my first purchase off ebay and it had to come like this ): want to cry ):


the other 3 parcels, dresses from Viola's BO and off some lovely cotters! all from

1. duo tone silk dress in red/black, doesnt fit me as well as i hoped it would :( will be selling this off. any takers? i bought it in black/whitecombi too, itchy fingers -_- probably will be putting both colors up for sale!
2. shoulder-padded dress in red, very yummy shade of red! now cannot decide to keep black/red or both.

3. guess-inspired denim frock, omg i loooove this. so so pretty and flattering. well made too! <3 the denim material is thick and good, and the white lines at the sides streamlines the figure nicely!


and WIWs yesterday/today

chic jumper in black,
inner tank top, topshop
nude clutch,

printed floral top, outfittergirls
black denim shorts, my mom's wardrobe
black studded jacket, taiwan
bag, HURS


good/bad news: my freelance money is here. gloriously 1XXX amount and i feel so saintly for depositing 70% of it into my savings account instead of going crazy shopping (oops i think i already did that the past few days) or buying my chanel 2.55 >_> speaking of which i saw a second-hand one selling on ebay for like 1.7K SGD which isn't a bad price at all and it's in pretty good condition! temptations temptations. but am too sad over the KS bag now to get another one just yet.

anyway that was the good news, bad news is that i may be jobless come 2010 and judging by my current job prospects, the situation seems pretty bleak :( doubt i can get a higher paying job with my current skills set and my other option is to turn full-time freelance but having discussed it with my art director it seems that it MAY work out, provided he gets enough projects to hand over to me so please keep your fingers crossed for me. God i dont ask for much i just want to be happily married (in future that is) and provided for... dont need big house big car or anything. got money for me to go shopping online good enough. TYVM.

dinner date sunday

the boy made dinner on Sunday for us and the rest of my family ♥
was intending to dress up nice nice and go to town for dinner, but since YZ had already brought back all the various ingredients, scrapped dinner plans and stayed home to make dinner!

did i mention that we were planning to cook for lunch initially? but by the time we were done cooking/trying to cook, it was dinner time already hahahahahaha.

dinner menu: deep fried minced meatballs, omelette with onions, vegetables with shredded pork, pork with corn soup!

chef of the day and his proud creations :D soup not pictured above. pardon my makeup-less face :/

lol i helped to shape the meatballs & sample the food. disaster in the kitchen, we made a huge mess.
but dinner was gooood, food made with love always tastes delicious :)
thank you baby, you're the best :)


more more more shopping, i think i am expecting like 6-7 items to arrive in the mail this week. going mad!!! and the telegraphic transfer of my freelance pay will only go though by like wednesday or thursday haha so i am mad broke until then. bought 4 more items from HVV & BC today :(

collected this on Sunday:

chunky black heels from ,
omg i am incredibly amazed by its comfort level, 9.5cm tall and i can actually walk in them! i normally collapse and die in heels taller than 6 or 7cm.
love them! plus they make my legs go on and on!!! too bad though, i can't wear them on dates with YZ cos the extra 9.5cm would make me taller than him :/

and two more dresses from ,
nude eyelet frock which is super flirty & cute, plus grecian toga which is actually Gina's but i tried it on :P


last but not least, i bullied QQ by putting her into a paper shopping bag. and she just stayed put too -.-

so cute right. i've only realised how much lankier she's grown after looking at her baby pictures.
she's still tiny but with much longer legs now.

dont be deceived by her pint size and innocent face though. freaking mischievous little pixie.

monday and another long week ahead! oohh and my USPS parcel is on its way! excitingness.

Label/Receipt Number: EC70 1317 726U S
Class: Express Mail International®
Status: International Dispatch

Your item left the United States from ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS) at 8:24 AM on November 21, 2009. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

from the proverbial rags to riches

so anyway all along i thought that my freelance work was being quoted to me in SGD but found out today that i was getting paid in USD not SGD and i am MAD happy about this discovery!!!!! 1.4x richer than i thought i'd be, which means i don't feel so guilty about spending exactly $293.66 this afternoon. the money aint coming in til next week though but just the thought of it is enough to make me feel like i've struck a small windfall. heheheheh. i promise not to whine about freelance work and late nights anymore, i suddenly appreciate all this extra money so much now! hope my parcel gets shipped to me soon and i promise i'll definitely post pictures of my new baby (or babies) once i get em!

i dont even have to feel guilty and eat sandwiches for the month of december too because i can actually afford to eat lunches now! i know, i sound so pathetic right. well depriving myself of lunch money and having packed sandwiches kind of eases my guilt at spending so much unnecessary money on "wants". but since tis the season to be jolly and all, gonna let myself indulge in simple pleasures like spending money without guilt and being happy about it :) after all, i'm in the prime of youth and i can still doll myself up and look nice and pretty, in 20 or even 10 years time i wont even have this luxury of youth anymore.. :(

randomly, i just want to say i hate my crappy cheap pink IKEA chair, my butt hurts after sitting on it :(

shoulder-padded dress in black and ms-selfridge inspired bustier in fuschia, both from


many nights ago i was sitting outside my front door, next to where Actie's doggy enclosure used to be, sulking and in tears and feeling sorry for myself, at that moment i missed Actie so much because i didnt have a fat warm furry bundle sitting in my lap to offer me the amicable presence of her comfort, and i felt so so alone and even more sorry for my poor sad self :(

still loving and missing you darling.


and i'm getting sick of my hair again. but i think the straight fringe just instantly lowers my IQ and makes me look stupider.. maybe i'll just dye my hair back to black and soft straighten it. it's getting long and thick and utterly messy. long = good, but messy = no good.

a couple of what i wores:

lace-up silk frock in midnight blue,
leather sling bag, zara

grey batwing tunic, hypnosis
ruched S&B leggings,
vintage necklace,

pink chiffon top & ruched S&B leggings,
vintage necklace,


uhhh i made another cheesecake again and this time it bombed, the boy asked me to add more sugar and bake it a lil shorter cos the last one wasnt sweet enough and was on the hard side, and now it's too sweet and underbaked :( need to figure out how to save it later. ooh and i am on a mad buying spree! payday-induced insanity. have just paid for the shoulder-padded dress in red, duo-tone dress in red/black, (a few days ago) HVV bal-inspired bag, abstract chiffon pastel frock, galznextdoor chunky heels, rach's nude eyelet frock, cream floral tube dress and idk what else. i figure i can always sell them off if they dont fit/look bad. madness. i'm so well stocked up for CNY now i think i have about 5 to 6 different dresses to choose from. and CNY is still months away, godknows what other red/bright colored dresses i'll be adding to my collection til then -_- never knew i had it in me to be such a shopaholic. this is proof that the genes dont skip a generation. i guess there's always christmas.

happy weekend y'all!
