I just went to have my eyelash extensions done. Quite a number of people asked how i go about removing my eye make up and yet taking good care of the lash extensions ? Removing make up when you have lash extensions can be quite challenging but i managed to find a quick and cheap way.
I bought this Etude House eye make up pencil remover. It doesn”t really remove make up totally but kind of helps to remove make up smudges. But i used it to remove my eye make up (1st step) before i use oil-to-foam cleanser (2nd step) to remove the remaining. This pencil helps to “dissolve” your eyemake up thus making it easier for your 2nd step make up remover to remove it totally. In this way , there is no need to soak your q-tip cotton buds into make up remover solutions and slowly trying to “rub” it off.
My method works pretty find for me and it also helps to “dissolve” waterproof make up and making eye make up remover easier. It is not expensive and about 7,800 KRW at Etude house. Im not sure if the stores in Singapore are selling it or not but you should give it a try.
This month is a busy but fulfilling month for me. Down with food poisoning last 1 week and i couldnt eat or sleep well.
Next few months going to be bit busy and i can’t wait for the Xmas holidays because i can finally sit down and do a proper research for our wedding plans which will happen next year Sept / Oct in Busan. And im already looking for coats for next year. This year, i didn’t bring thick enough and ended up having food poisoning and a bad cold. Feeling damn paiseh..because first time meeting his mum but i ended up in hospital and she has to take care of me.
Anyways , should i go for a hanbok wedding dress or a traditional hanbok ?
I prefer it to be pastel colour though. Hehe.
Saw a couple of coats for spring on a korean site and tempted to get them though. They are having Xmas SALES ! Thinking should i ship them to SG or to our place in Busan.
The cutting is so nice. Only KRW 40,000. I bought coats from this shop previously and they keep me so warm during late winter and spring. Very light weight too.
Like this purple colour. Quite unique and since im always in black. It should brighten my outfit. Also i like furry coats. Very nice and soft to touch !
If only SG has 4 seasons. I love dressing up during spring/autumn where the weather is not too cold and not too hot. Just nice for my lace boots , coats and stockings etc.
I haven’t been getting in touch with the latest Korean dramas or variety shows due to work for the past 1 month. But im still having my weekly Korean classes and surprisingly my Korean speaking improves quite alot and i am able to have fluent conversations with his mother on the phone and even understanding abit of the Busan dialect.
Im hooked to the Reply drama series.
I have watched Reply 1994 , Repy 1997 and now Korea is airing the Reply 1988. I started watching the first drama series in 2013.
Damn funny and interesting drama. You can hear many forms of Korean dialects – Standard Seoul Dialect , Busan Dialect , Jeolla-d- Dialect, Chungcheong-do Dialect or Gangwon-do Dialect. Also , you can get to learn alot about traditional Korean cultures. It helps me to understand the era that oppa’s mother and him grew up. You will also get to learn their family house rules / habits , manners etc. I also learnt my Busan dialect from these 3 series. Though i can understand , i can’t really speak the dialect.
If you have watched the Taiwanese drama Our Times , it is something similar but this is drama form.
Reply 1997 featured Eunji from Apink and some other rapper idols.
Very hilarious drama. Even more hilarious if you understand Korean or even the dialects.
This time Reply 1988 featured Hyeri from Girls Day. The actor on the left very shuai hor ?
Go watch Reply 1988 and the other series also. You will get hooked. If you have a Korean bf/gf/spouse , watch it with them. It will be good for bonding and also to learn more about his culture , family habits etc.
I think i had too much Korean bbq or the pork was not well cooked. I was down with food poisoning for a few days and the feeling was really terrible.
Last week , we went to Robert Oppa’s house for Korean bbq.
Went with SY oppa and RJ oppa to K&J Butchery at Bukit Timah to buy pork belly and pork collar.
This butchery carries alot of Korean food , meats , sauces , sojus etc. A typical Korean mart for you to buy Korean ingredients for cooking. The vegs and all are also from Korea.
Yup yup, you can find Peach soju here !
It is Christmas soon. And lately i have been working outside at starbucks sipping my cup of $4.60 Earl Grey tea with some new found friends using the app Lunch Kaki.
Here’s a picture taken while having coffee with my lunch kaki.
Lunch Kaki was an app started by a dear friend of mine. He quit his job as a stock broker to start out a networking app on his own. Alot of hardwork and planning were put into this app and though in just less than 1 year , the app has alot of users and i see more new people joining this app. Even my Korean teacher also joined this app. As a humble man , he will meet his users to ask for feedbacks to improve the app. This app helps to improve my social circle and i met people from all walks of life. For people like me who moved around , having meals alone can be quite sian at times. Lol i will always joke with my lunch kaki that i need someone to look after my belongings while i go get my food which is the reason why i used. Haha just joking lah. Need to break the ice what if not the meal will be very quiet and awkward.
My lunch kakis and i had meals ,talked about what we do , our trades and for some we eventually became friends and met often for meals. Recently, i met with someone who worked in the petrochemical industry and he taught me alot about dealing with people and differentiating personalities. Not only did i met someone and made a friend but we learnt from each other.
You can read more about the app HERE.
Support local app , join Lunch kaki and make a new friend !
** Psst..i just had new eyelash extensions done and also a tummy fat “destroying” session at Aeon Aesthetics and Medical Center. Sounds scary but actually it is not. Blogging soon tomorrow on these 2 !!
