Away at camp~

When you see this, I'm probably at camp, dying of fatigue or sunburn or sorethroat or something else..

So bear with me for the lack of updates!

I've prepared some scheduled posts while I'm away, but I've not used this function before so if it screws up, too bad, no posts for the next 6-7 days unless I have the time to post the entries manually or with my phone or something..

Byee people! Hope my freshies are nice! :D

pic-bits #10

It has been quite some time since I posted any pic-bits, so here are some photos from the past weeks! I think I left some photos out but they're everywhere and I'm getting confused myself..

One of my DIY manicure done quite long ago.. Forget to update..



Anderson's Ice cream + brownie with the boy!







This picture and the story behind it is super cute I think!! Boyfriend was complaining that these 2 cats just walked off immediately after eating the food that he fed them. So he sent me the photo of the cats walking away. So cute, him and the cats!



Some potato chips found selling in the hospital's pharmacy..Never see this outside before..



Marche meal with mummy! Rosti + crepe + rosetta drink (sp) !



Some berry pudding that my mum introduced to me, quite nice also!



My cute little sis actually made a 2012 calendar for me but I only got it from her in mid-july? LOL too funny la her haha!! But sweet still :)



One of my favourite childhood biscuit! :D



My late night supper in bed! No more at home already :(



Puni sweets I found in Singapore! I remember buying them when I was in Taiwan years ago~



My galaxy nails that just chipped off.. Nice or not?

Ms Bvlgari in purple from The Prodigurls series!

The lenses that I'm reviewing today is from Girlsatsixteen! This pair of lenses are really obvious when worn!



The lenses that I'm wearing today is Ms Bvlgari in purple from the prodigurls series.



If you don't know, the prodigurls series is a special series produced by the contact lens brand, Fynale. All the lens designs are quite special and they are named after those super high end brands! I have previously reviewed Ms Hermes in pink, another lens design from the prodigurls series here.

The shopowner also sent me a mask with the lenses, hehe thanks ^^



I peeled off the sticker on the vials so that you can see the lens design better!



An even closer look!

It has a basic black limbal ring on the outside, and the black inner ring gives the dolly look when worn. Notice that there is some super fine orange flowery line details? Pretty, no?


When worn! From top to bottom, with flash, in bright sunlight and in dark room lighting.



 Lens details:
Diameter: 16mm
Water Content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.6
Life Span: 1 Year




Comfort: 5/5 – comfy even though its big 16mm lenses!

Enlarging: 5/5 – 16mm leh!!! Of course enlarging! :)

Design: 4.5/5 – Design is pretty, the thickness of the outer and inner black rings were just right to give the dolly look. However, the orange details are not visible at all, hence -1!

Color: 4/5 – The purple color shows up really well, even on my dark eyes! Even my boyfriend commented on the color intensity of this pair of lenses.. Out of all the lenses that I've worn to date, this pair of lenses and my geo mimi bambi green have the most obvious color. -1 for the invisible overly fine orange details though, really cannot notice it even when I'm staring into my own eyes in the mirror.

Currently, I can't decide if my favourite pair of lenses is this pair or my geo mimi bambi green hehehe.......

Anyway, I look kinda weird in this photo below as camwhoring with flash is just too weird! However, I wanted to show how obvious the lenses are even when the photo is taken with flash from quite a distance. Usually, I'l have to take the photos of my eyes really near to the camera with flash to see the lenses clearly, but not for this pair.



Its buy 1 get 1 free now for Fynale The Prodigurls series, so $20 for 2 pairs of lenses!! Super worth it! Faster get them from the shop now before the offer is over!

Thanks Girlsatsixteen blogshop for sending me one of my current favourite lenses now!

RWS + horrible buffet + candylicious with Pam!

Met up with Pam last week!

The highlight of the outing was supposedly a Korean BBQ buffet at Resorts World Sentosa (a deal that we bought from www.deal.com.sg) at Hyang-To-Gol's Korean Charcoal BBQ. But it ended up bleh :(

But nevermind, we took photos with cute stuffs near candylicious after our horrible meal hehe!

Talk about the horrible stuff first. Bear with me, it was a really horrible buffet and I have have have to complain. And warn the other people going there.

If you don't wanna know then scroll down to our photos at the far far bottom!



So yeah, I shall show you people which deal is that and you can think again if you feel like buying it next time if this deal opens again. We bought it from this link, but the deal is closed now. God bless the 690 other dumb people who bought it haha! Its priced at $33 after the deal discount, and I thought that since this is at RWS it should be good so I asked her to buy this one over other buffets! Come to think of it, $33 is super expensive please. That buffet I might not even go in if its $10?

I ate quite little because I was turned off by the food. We both thought its those DIY BBQ buffet but we were wrong. No DIY. Most food were not ready at 5.30pm which is the restaurant opening time for dinner. Why not prepared one? Plus, the BBQ stuff were served in those foodcourt hotplates (if you eat korean food) at the food counter. Note that the hotplate is not for personal use. We were supposed to kiap the meat from that personal sized hotplate to our plates. Seriously?  How stingy can a buffet get!!!! :( At least put the food in those big metal things right?

Here are some stuffs that I took..

Ginseng chicken soup, pasta, omelette, chicken ball. That chicken ball is the best food in the buffet already.



Crabmeat soup, fish, luncheon meat, chicken wing, crayfish, rice cake and the chicken ball.. The chicken wing is bloody on the inside! The rice cake is chewy until I can't swallow at all, pam said that it wasn't fully cooked or something.

And this crabmeat soup, which I thought was fake shark fin soup (which should be nice) tasted like raw fish water or something. I almost died when I drank my first mouthful! THE WORST SOUP THAT I'VE EVER DRANK IN MY LIFE, I SWEAR!!! I can't believe they actually dare to serve this, at RWS somemore. And this Pam, happily treated it as shark fin soup, put loads of vinegar and finished her whole bowl before knowing that it tasted like raw fish water from me.. :(



Some roasted stuff that we ordered. We ordered a few kinds of meat and they just came in the same pile of mess like this. I understand this is buffet, no need for good presentation, but also cannot serve us one rubbish dump right?



The second best things I ate there - fruits. I don't even eat fruits when I go to buffet usually because I'll be too full from the cooked and good food. And I'm reduced to eating fruits at a buffet in RWS that will cost $40-50 without the deal. Guess how bad this buffet is?



Disappointing max. The only good thing is that its located at some ulu part of RWS behind universal studios. Imagine tourists happily going in, thinking that they shall just splurge on some good food since they are in RWS already, and tasting all these crap especially the raw fish water. Poor things.. I will not go to this buffet ever again in my life, even if someone is treating me there.

I am a fussy eater, but rest assured I know the difference between yucky food and food that I personally don't like to eat. This buffet belongs to the first group.

End of the complains. Sorry for the rantings. Feeling disgusted recalling this experience of eating there plus I felt like I got robbed of $33 now.

 

So, after the buffet, we walked around the outside of USS. We went to the Hershey's shop as well as Candylicious; plus we took photo with some mascots and "statues" (okay I know they're not statues but that's the closest word I know of to describe them). Yay photo spam below!

Cute mascot lol!



This mascot totally whacked my head with his big head in this photo! Epic photo hahaha! Look at my stunned-but-trying-super-hard-to-smile-for-the-photo face!



Eating the giant chocolate bar..



Pam looks super duper happy here lol..



Haha I wanted to type "William, jealous or not?" Then I noticed that this green M&M's is female, got long eyelash...



Lol her new friend..



Eh don't know why my hair looks straight here right, the gold part!!



Okay, she's the giant now lol..



I saw this super cute flatish soft toy in the shop so I hugged it around the shop and camwhored with it haha!



Hahaha got one copycat here!



Okay, I never copycat but my position kind of awkward here lol..



Anyway, we bought lollies!!! :) Not very nice though haha! Basically I guess that day was just a bad food day for me or something, I remember having screwed up wanton mee with too much tomato sauce that afternoon.



Last photo of us! :D



Yay finally done with this loooooooooong post!

BYE!

Ice Age 4 with the boy

I've got to wake up early tomorrow, busy day ahead so only a short post tonight!

On a side note, my grandma is finally getting discharged from the hospital and tomorrow my mum and I are going to fetch her and stuffs. 

Watched Ice Age 4 with boyfriend last week!



Had dinner at some japanese restaurant beside Ajisen in Plaza Sing, I forgot to take note of the name! (If I ever remember to go and check up on the restaurant name I'll update this space ya.)

The food is quite cheap for a restaurant!

His omu rice..



My prawn tempura rice...



And movieeeee!!!!! Ice Age 4 Continental Drift!



Cute and funny movie! Super entertaining.. It was a short movie, an hour plus or so but good enough for us! Go watch it!!

I decided that my favourite character this time round would be Louis, the hedgehog hehe! He's the small and super cute friend of that Peaches elephant..



I always love those baby animals or side characters more than the main ones.. I don't know why.. But anyway, I found a site where they listed down all of Ice Age's characters haha, go take a look if you're interested! http://iceage.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Ice_Age_characters

Shall go to sleep now, nights!
