Love Your Enemies

Matthew 5:43-48 (New International Version) Love for Enemies 43"You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44But I tell you: Love your enemies[b] and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil […]

Bridal Makeup

Had a trial makeup session with the makeup artist (“MUA”) from French Bridal though I really don’t know what I was “trying” since she didn’t do the makeup base, and only used my own foundation to thicken it, and added on more blusher (I already had blusher).  According to the MUA, during the actual photoshoot, […]


Was eyeing this pair of shoes in Aldo… initially I thought they only came in gold… but turns out they have it in silver too!  What I find strange is that the Aldo website says it’s 2.5 inches?  Actually it states that the heels are “2.5” and +”, whatever that means, but I’m sure it’s […]

A Simple Instruction

Forgive my OCDness but I kept getting the niggling feeling that the back of the gown looked different.  So I dug out the photos I took the last time to compare and indeed!  The lace/beading is tacked on differently!  I called the tailor, Ann, to tell her about it but she was at some really […]

Evening Gown Fitting

Finally got to see how my evening gown looks like.  It’s more purple than I thought (though the photos look blue)… prob. due to the purple lining I chose.  The cloth is actually this midnight blue/purple chiffon with tiny gold glitter (not very noticeable unless you look at the cloth up close).  Anyway, here’re some […]

Made in Taiwan

Been scurrying around looking for stuff that I’ll need for the photoshoot – Swarovski crystals (for nail art), shoes (for bridal gown and evening gown), and so on.  Saw a pair of shoes from Americaya today that came in 2 colour combinations – gold/silver or silver/grey.  While I preferred the gold/silver combination, the silver/grey one […]

Malicious WordPress Themes

Remember how I used to complain about unauthorised links being added in my blogroll without my permission?  And how my site got hacked repeatedly despite my strong password?  The answer dawned on me after I saw that one of the sites where I downloaded some WP themes from, ‘’, was inserted into my blogroll without […]

Speed Test

Really strange.  Download speeds are typically twice as fast as upload speeds… but for my office’s servers?  The upload speed is faster… weird weird weird.

Beauty Regimen

I’ve never been a big follower of any beauty regimen because I’ve never been, and am still not sure about how scientifically proven they are.  My “beauty regimen” used to consist of 1) washing my face with a facial foam and 2) using a moisturiser for face. In the last 6 months however, as my […]

Shop Shop Shop!

Went on a shopping spree just now.  Got cuff links & a tie for Iceman’s groom suit, bought my SKII moisturiser, bought a whitening mask (first time i’m trying it… getting married is making me vainer than usual), bought a Biotherm makeup base for my mom… and got samples (and a free umbrella) from SKII […]
