Infinity Flowers Nail Art Tutorial | Pattern Nails

Oh, hi there..

Been a long while since I upload my last video, hasn't it? So glad I got to upload videos again :D

How are guys?Hope you all have been great!

This particular tutorial is something i filmed back in October last year, so more than a half a year ago O.o~ It inspired by this flower-like pattern which resembles 'BATIK' that we used to do in elementary school art class.

True, the pattern is a bit time consuming, but the result is SO WORTH it! It was a loving-it-until-cannot-bear-to-remove-it nail art for me. And I hadn't had one of those in quite a while.

So I really do hope you guys like this at least half as much as I do.

xoxo,

Lily

Are You an #oldface ?

Sam showed me this website, how-old.net, where they will detect how old your face is from a photo. *Wrote this more than a month ago, this website is kinda old news now X_X*

So I tried it

Waaa, 8 years younger one. #notbadjpg

Tried Sam’s photo:

He got 28 LOLOLOL FHL

Do another one of him

1 year younger than before, but still. hahaha OLD FACE!

And then I did another one of me and, apparently, karma caught me, so I got 28. TWENTY EIGHT.

Conveniently forgot to to screen grab that one though :P But here’s another one that is close to that:


A redeeming one now. Here’s one when we were young - 3 years ago


Another. Here’s one of pedophiliac Sam

Anyway, it was around this time that I realized, how-old actually also detect your GENDER.

And Sam almost always detected as a girl lmao. But then again, I’ve been told that he does have a prettier face than I fml -___-"

In any case, I think rounder face can be a bit of a factor:

See, in this photo my cheeks are pretty much half of my face. Yes, I have bakpao cheeks. and meatball nose.

While in this photo I tried to do more demure face (keyword: tried), so my face isn’t as round as the one above, and I got 4 years older. Both taken only minutes apart.


Can be just coincidental and I’m just bullshitting you lol. Nevertheless, this website did give me a momentary mild entertainment, so why not give it a try? You might be able to tell the people that you love dearly that they have old face. fun.

take care,
xoxo

Risen from the Ashes

lol super dramatic title or not?

SO.

Hi there!

Man, it’s been so so long since I last blogged. 3 MONTHS!

Wait. I just opened my blog to see if I had ever skipped blogging this long and found this:

Where is my pretty banner and background wtf
I’ll go and sort this out first then continue this, so when you guys read this post it’s back to normal already ~ first time blogging after a long time and got this to deal with fml


Okay, so apparently it’s not just the background and banner, but ALL images from my google+ photo album that connect to this blog, which basically are almost all the images in this blog except those images in sidebar where I use photobucket.

I think it’s because I recently changed my blog title (due to a bug in blogo, the team told me they’ll fix it), thus changing the name of the photo album by default, then all existing link needs to be redirected? Not 100% sure. Anyway, I’ve posted the problem on blogger help forum, so I’ll just wait for a response. Meanwhile, I’ll try to tweak it myself, see if I can fix it.

If turns out I DO need to redirect the broken link one by one, then #crydieme lol. Redirecting almost 1000 images wtf. @_@

unrelated meme, but this captures what I’ll look like


I’m getting sidetracked here.

Now, one of the reason why I haven’t been blogging is because I’m graduating soon = thesis. We finished the thesis in February like I said in my Valentine’s video, but the thesis defense day was not until march, then after that we still had to do revision for the hard cover version.

I don’t know how many copies of the thesis I’ve printed out already since there were multiple revisions for the most nitpicky stuff (margin, paging, etc). The most annoying thing was, they didn’t point out the revision all at once. So we fixed one, then they pointed another one, we fixed it again, then another revision magically appeared.

Y U NO SHOW THE REVISION ALL AT ONCE??!! U WANT ME TO DUMP SO MUCH PAPER IS IT?! U HATE FOREST IS IT?! *table flip*

*calm self down*

And man, getting all the autograph needed for the hard cover was a pain in the ass.

In summation, it was one costly thesis.

Sam paid for most of the cost though, and no one paid him back summore. fhl

Other than that, and this is probably the main reason, is because I MOVED. Again. I moved in the beginning of March, and unlike last July where I only moved to a new boarding house, I moved into a house, so the unpacking and getting the house ready took quite some time
And then I took some time to just getting myself together, tried to be zen haha

So yeah, that’s about all the excuses that I have. But I’m going to continue blogging now.

take care,
xoxo

expectation

Expectation is a bitch, isn't it?

I've always thought you would come through in the end, but time and time again, you didn't. I guess it's my stupidity, huh, to still be clinging on a vague hope that maybe, just maybe, this time it will be any different.

In the aftermath, you will somehow step in and do some kind of redemption act, then that's it, right? You redeem, then I shall obliterate all my outrage. You get the satisfaction that you already right the wrong, and I'm left with renewed faith in you.

Thus, the cycle restart, expectation -> disappointment -> redemption -> renewed faith. It's a vicious cycle, really.

I'm too damn tired of giving you the satisfaction of having righting the wrong, because in doing so, I'm deliberately giving you a chance to do the wrong thing in order to make it right. Sorry, but no more of that bullshit, not gonna give you a chance to make everything okay or make the unicorn puke rainbow.

You fucking ruined valentine's day for me for goodness sake. I freaking love valentine, okay, as cheesy as that might sound. Yes, it's a commercialized holiday, but even my stone-cold rigid heart gets warm and fuzzy on the concept of a one day especially dedicated for your loved ones. It's the one day that I can somewhat show my affection without being my usual too-cool-for-school self. Yes, showing feeling is a great challenge of mine, so I do cherish valentine's day and birthday of the people that I love. It's my chance to really show them that I care and that, as a matter of fact, I do have emotion.

Bamboo Dim Sum - Affordable All You Can Eat Dim Sum!

I love dim sum. Period.

So when my brother's girlfriend told me about this relatively affordable all you can eat dim sum, how could I not give it a try, yes? The price is 53,000/nett for ALL the dim sum I want please.

The system is a bit different here as there is no menu. The waiter will bring out an array of certain type of dimsum (ex. steamed ones) and you choose what you want, and then the waiter will bring out another type of dim sum (ex. deep-fried ones) and you choose again which one(s) you want, and so on and so on until they've showed you all the dim sum they have, then you can ask for more for the one you'd like more of, like maybe you want the waiter to bring out all the steamed ones again.  


There are two stations near the kitchen, one for the free-flow hot tea, and another one for free-flow onde-onde, fried plain mantau, chiken-filled mantau, and porridge.


I like the onde-onde here. Usually I find the outer is too chewy for my liking, but the onde onde here has a more crispy outer and the inside part of the skin is the right chewiness for my taste. It has tausa (red bean paste) as the filling.


The porridge was not bad either, or at least it's seasoned and not bland. A bit too dry for my liking though, I like soupy porridge.

hot tea

The first array they brought out were the steamed dimsum and these are the ones that we chose, there were a bunch more types of siew may. 

Everything tastes really decent. The hakau was pretty good (we asked for a second portion of it and I ate more than half the portions we ordered myself), and I also liked that wonton at the bottom right. The siew may was quite tasty as well.


Sorry for the blurry pic >_< I didn't realize it until I edit the photos.

The next array was dim sum with sauces/soup, there were only 5 choices of it if I'm not mistaken, and these are the ones that we chose.

Sam wasn't a big fan of either of it, so I finished the wonton myself, and the meat-filled tofu wasn't bad, but I don't think I'm going to order it again.


The third array was the deep-fried dim sum, and I finally managed to took pic of all of the choices you're offered for this one *pat self on the back*

the one we chose
I didn't like any of them. That long ones were too greasy and the ones shaped like ekkado didn't taste nice. The only one that is decent is the fried wonton with mayo. Sam finished most of it, I only had one of each dim sum.


This wasn't on the trays offered, but you can also order chiken feet. It's Sam's favorite (like he legit can eat just chicken feet with rice and be content), so he gotta order it. The feet were huge btw, so it's a bit hard to eat.


This is the last array of dim sum they have, the buns. They have durian bao, pandan bao, chocolate mantau, tausa pao, and chicken pao. 

I chose durian bao and tausa bao. Yes, I, because Sam was already full and only want 1 durian bao. I was actually already full too, but I can never pass up something sweet to end my meal. You know, like you have a second stomach for dessert.

I love the baos! They're very soft and the fillings were delicious and not too sweet. My favorite is the tausa bao. Definitely try out their buns if you visit :)


My perverted boyfriend said the durian bao looks like boobs wtf -___-"

Anyway, all the food were really decent, but nothing ah-mah-zing. It's you get what you pay for kind of deal. I think that their nicest dim sum is the buns and the steamed dim sum, they're honestly pretty delicious, especially the buns!

I definitely will be back whenever I'm craving dim sum (which is quite often) but too broke to eat at my favorite dim sum place (which also, happens quite often lol). It's good enough to satisfy my dim sum craving :)

Lily
