Tag Post - 15 Weird Facts

I came across this tag post today from copythatcopycat's blog and kaylashevonne's blog. I thought it would be fun to also do this tag.

I just discovered kayla's blog yesterday, then found copythatcopycat from her blog. Seriously, they have an amaaazing nail art!! Kayla has a huuuge nail polishes spread that I feel like going to her house (wherever it is), and just rob all of her nail polishes collection!!!

I actually have seen this tag on youtube done by Blair from juicystar07, Nikkietutorial, etc etc. The tag is "Get your freak on", I think.

Here we go...

1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you? parents sometimes call me mbokdhe -__-" , means like old aunty I guess.

But the weirdest nickname I got is actually from my friend in middle school, which is "Dugong" (yup, the animal wtf). And my friends tend to change my name a lot!! (ie. my name is priscilla, they would call me pritil, cila, etc etc). Is it so hard to just call me Lily meh? =.='

2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
I have a lot of weird habits. (I know the question states 'a', but it just isn't enough :p)
I tend to sleep at night while watching the re-run of Friends, How I Met Your Mother, The Nanny, Big Bang Theory, etc. 
I tend to keep titbits like papers, stores' receipt, anything like that and they just piling up and become trash. 
When I eat chicken or steaks, I tend to cut them all to little pieces first and then start to eat them, so usually, when I'm done cutting, others already halfway through their meal --".
When I talk, my voice changes, sometimes it's high-pitched, sometimes it's low-pitched,  sometimes it's just weird.
I hop. not walk. hop. I just realized this recently -___-".

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
I don't think I have any phobia. I'm not afraid of cockroach, mouse, insects, worm, snakes, and other stuffs girls usually afraid of, but I am afraid to see slasher kinda thing and to see diseases that causing horrible rashes, etc. Is that a weird phobia?

4. What’s a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you’re alone?
None. I blast and belt out the song I love pretty much everywhere and anytime I want to. I'm pretty shameless, although I used to be really shy.

5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
Smokes from cigarette, especially in a public place like restaurants. Put off you damn cigarette ah, I want to eat food, not your smoke. If you want to die of lung problems don't drag me with you leh.

6. What’s one of your nervous habits?
I always squeezing the tip of my shirt and start to blab around non-sense thing without realizing it -__-"

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
I'm using a single-size bed, so I guess in the middle?

8. What was your first stuffed animal and its name?
Seriously don't remember.

9. What’s the drink you always order at Starbucks?
Chocolate cream chip or hot chocolate or caramel latte :)

10. What’s a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?
I've never preach anything (that I remember), but I do say in the beginning of my videos to start on with a basecoat to protect your natural nails, but I actually VERY VERY rarely using basecoat, because I'm just too impatient.

11. Which way do you face in the shower?
I spin around quite frequently lol.

12. Do you have any weird body skills?
As far as I know, I don't have any :( .Oh, oh, I can make my eyebrows one up one down, is that count? :)

13. What’s your favorite comfort food that’s “bad”, but you love to eat it anyway?
I love fatty greasy food and creamy sauce.

14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?

15. Time to sleep – what are you actually wearing?
Loose comfy shirt and and loose shorts. Anything really comfortable basically.

I tag all of you who read this :D

P.s. I know I haven't posted this month's video, but I'm editing some right now, so I hope I can upload soon ;)

Etude House Nail Polish Haul + Little Review

Did a nail polish haul before went to watch The Vow.

This is my first time shop at Etude House, and the employee greets you by calling you "princess" lol!! And the whole store is princessy-themed.

Anyway, bought 5 nail polishes. Cost 140k in total.

Top Coat, Petite Darling PP905, Petite Darling BR310, Petite Darling BL 501, Petite Darling BL505

I've tried the sky blue and the dark nude far, here's what I think about them

  • Price on the medium range, so it's still pretty much affordable (@28k)*
  • They dry really quickly!! 
  • I like the consistency and they're pretty easy to apply on nails
  • Their variety of colors are lovely, sweet, pastel and really girly, albeit not a lot of variety

  • They need more than one coat to get them opaque.** The dark nude needs 2 coats and the sky blue needs 3-4 coats.***
  • Not a lot of variety of colors

*for the type that I bought. There were also ones that @100k @60++k.
**The one with fuchsia cap supposed to have more intense color, so maybe they only need 1 coat, haven't tried though.
***Actually, for the con, they already compensate with the fast drying, so I'm totally okay with applying layers of coats and it doesn't make the final looks bulky or anything like that.

Basically, you get a good quality nail polish for pretty affordable price, so I'm definitely gonna buy some again soon. Really drooling over the Matte Top Coat.

Oh!! And I love the top coat (one at the far right)!! Will do a review soon!

//all price in IDR, of course.

--edit-- // 24 November 2013
Etude House actually has a massive selection of nail polish, didn't know at that time

Yes, I love Chick-Flicks ♥

I've loved chick-flicks since.. I don't know.. E V E R.

But, since I moved to Jakarta, I kinda abandoned my love for it and prefer TV Show like HIMYM, Vampire's Diaries, The Big Bang Theory, etc instead.

And after watching Bridesmaids, The Vow and This Means War last few days, Oh my, I instantly falling head over toe for chick flicks again!!!!

Being a teenager, my hormones kinda force me to love light movies with cheesy lines about love and any movie that promoting and flaunting forever and ever love in the air.

I'm gonna watch "Horrible Bosses" soon, simply because it has Jennifer in it, just like I watched Bridesmaids simply because it has Britney's song in it ;)

Turns out, horrible bosses isn't a chick flick. Didn't know -___-". But It is a good movie and very entertaining and funny.

The Vow Quotation

Last week I went to Puri to watch "The Vow" with friends (kinda late I know).

source :

And despite there were a lot of sweet things said in the movie and the vow itself was beautifully written, my favorite line from "The Vow" actually came from Paige(Rachel McAdams)'s mother.

/*spoiler alert*/

When Paige found out the reason she left the house before was because her father caught cheating on her mom with her best friend, she confronted her mom, asked why hadn't her mom left her father. 

Then, Paige's mom said she was planning to leave. She was all ready for leaving, but then she saw a family photo album, and she saw her family together in the house, and the house seemed full, so she wanted to keep it that way and forgave her husband. She said,

"I chose to stay for the many things he did right and not to leave for the one thing he did wrong"

/*spoiler end*/

Yup, she said that. (Well, It's not exactly like that, I can't remember the exact line, but you get the geez).

If you think to yourself, let's try something simpler than marriage, just imagine your bf cheat, what would you do? Can you just forgive him, thinking it's the one thing he did wrong, all the other things he did right? 

Honestly, I wouldn't even consider giving him a second chance (providing he want one). Got to admit, I have a certain trust issue. I have a certain thought, like "Once a cheater always a cheater", I know it's not right to judge people like that because everybody can change and bipidiblapidibla, but if he really is a decent, honest, faithful guy, he wouldn't cheat in the first place, right? Why would I want to run the risk of getting cheated on for the second time by forgiving him? Maybe because he was just on the edge (F that! Have you got no self-control or commitment??!!) ? Or maybe because the history we had and the future might be worth another try? 

Here is the condition, EVEN if you've forgiven him and think this relationship deserve a second chance, would you be able to trust like you used to? Would it just be the same and not awkward? For a person with a concerned trust issue like me, it won't (I know leh, it all comes down to me with that, I'm the one with trust problem).

Well, I can't really compare this relationship thingy with Paige's mom' decision. I mean, she was saving a marriage, a bonding that has vow being said and written and meant all over it. But then again, marriages begins with relationships, yes?

What are your view on this? :)

And yes, this is an inconclusive entry.

It changed the way I see a cheater a bit, but I'm still not all pro-justforgive though. Although, I know couples went through all the cheating drama and still walked down the aisle at the end, but there's still a chance the cheating continue after the marriage, it's just whether you're willing to risk it or not, whether what you have or had with him is worth the risk or not.

Let's move on to another thing ^^. I got nail polish haul before the movie! Will blog about it soon ;)

Taylor Swift - Brought Up That Way

I've been listening to some of Taylor Swift's unreleased songs. I got a whole bunch of it months ago from my friend but never listen to it. But couple of days ago I got nothing to listen to, so I decided to give them a try. I haven't listen to all of them though. Anyway, long story short, I fell in love with some of them. I'm gonna blog about the songs one by one. 

This one, "Brought Up That Way", probably my most favorite at the moment. It's about a father who really loved his little girl, Emily, who often got bullied and how he stood up for her. I literally cried when I listened to this song. No lovey-dovey-teenage-romance. It's about a really fond father-daughter bond. This is the kind of song that makes your heart warm :)


This video has a child Taylor Swift's voice and I can't seem to find the grown-up's voice one. The one that I got from my friend has a grown-up Taylor's voice. But I think this one really suit the song and sweet. 


Emily comes home from school,
grabs onto her daddy's hand,
he says "baby girl what's wrong with you?"
she says "please don't make me go back there again"
She said "I wish there was some way to make them stop it"
so he drives down to
that principle's office and says

"I didn't bring her up so they could cut her down 
I didn't bring her here so they could shut her out
I live my whole damn life
to see that little girl's smile
so why are tears pouring down that sweet face?
she wasn't brought up that way"

Emily's home late again
he sees that boy drive away
oh, but something different this time,
she doesn't have too much to say
she said "he tried but there's just some things I won't do"
and through the tears
she said "I couldn't do that to you"and he said

"I didn't bring you up
so he could wear you down
take that innocent heart and turn it inside out
I live my whole damn life
to see my little girl's smile
so don't let nobody take that away,
you weren't brought up that way"

The phone rings on a rainy night 
says "it's Officer Tate"
he said "sir, there's been an accident,
you better come down here right away,
a drunken driver missed an overpass,
and Emily, she's fading fast" he says 

"God,I didn't bring her up
to watch them lay her down
nearly killed me the day
they put her momma in the ground
only thing that kept me alive,
was that little girl's smile
so please don't take that away,
It won't be easy taking her today,
she wasn't brought up that way"

He stands over the hospital bed
Emily opens her eyes


The reason why I share this song is because maybe there are Taylor's fans out there who don't know about this one song Taylor had written and this is a song worth knowing.

Love your dad every single day, every single breathe you take.
