It really has been a week again... and I decided to post this earlier but with updates tomorrow to close the month where I WILL BE NOT CELEBRATING HALLOWEEN.

On Monday, I showed off my new look which you can scroll below and see a bit of scarlet madness and a hat.

 The rest of the days were plenty boring, with last classes ongoing to finalize our projects and WHEW, I've got 4 projects in hand that I gotta start working right now! Very much going to be anti-social from now on as next week most of my pals would be starting their internship while I... have to *cross fingers* attain a visa for my intern. I'm freakin' excited so I'M CROSSING MY FINGERS REALLY HARD THAT PAPERWORK AND VISA AND ALL THINGS WILL BE EFFICIENTLY AND SMOOTHLY DONE. (>,< )`\

I checked it out where the office was and boy, was I blown away...

It's scary, and totally out of my wildest dreams. So will see. I must work things out with my two own hands! Dubai Embassy staff, please don't look at me like a young girl, I am old enough to go and work even though the birthdate in the passport is correct! (This is the time where my age-ful face/look comes in handy. I HOPE!) No, the birthday in the passport is wrong, it's supposed to be 1985. Now I can apply my visit pass visa with ease.

On the other hand, look at my new Mozilla persona! Cupcakes!

Two things to give a shout out though!

Locally-shot Perlini Silver campaign for 'REBIRTH', and I caught something familiar. It's the laser-cut holes leggings! (Plus it's on end of season sale now. It's been adorned to most famous Korean idols so get get!) I'm sure it's from Fleamadonna - it gives a great extra texture to the whole outfit! (Y) And I discovered Andy being the hairstylist, so way to go, Andy! He said that this campaign will run worldwide even in Italy, where the brand comes! Loving their silver collection as well which is not included in this shoot - they've got a mixture of clay and other cute charms but I guess it's much more expensive than the usual Perlini. Gotta wait!

Also in CATALOG OCT edition, whee~ Awesome. Don't blame me, I'm such a nerdy fan. But this is a great layout too~

Suecomma Bonnie on sale OH DEAR just as I made a big expense and decision to go. D:
I know I should decide for the future but this Earthly good is too bad to be missed! I did see my beloved 'Cinderella' shoes as I felt dreaming being so high, high above the ground but the price tag... Not friendly. Yet. Hmmmm.

    The long awaited letter from my one of the deelish chicken in town, won by tweeting to Nando's Singapore, was waiting for me to pick up, probably in the mail since Thursday. Isn't the letter print and the design of the wallet coupon leaflet very nicely done! Must hit the chicken for a cluckety cluck peri-peri delicious moment as it expires this weekend. D:

Kick in the air and bring the roof down on Saturday  for the K-TIGERS!

The show was SO COOOOOOL all the guys looked so fine and the girls, ROCK ON! GIRL POWER! Look out for the full report, updated hopefully tomorrow~

Another Sunday has arrived: this time it was a day out to enjoy. Needed to forget all the things that are making my head spinning like mad because I'm so worried about what I have to face next week, so a day out to see what's up in town with Miss Foo after a loooooooooooooooooooooooooong time is absoluteeeely neeeeeeeeeded.
Out to eat at Nando's Tanglin as I have gotten a cockle-doodle mail earlier on Friday,

and no, it doesn't get you in the mood to shop but to sleep. Sleepy sleepy~
I wonder why all Singaporeans line up to eat at Nando's, weekday or weekend. Back in Jakarta, when they had a big store in TA, it was sooooo empty daily no one ever ate in Nando's until finally a few years of being empty on weekdays and having a few people around on weekend, they closed down for good. I guess Singaporeans looking at a big, empty Nando's waiting for them to occupy would definitely satisfy them compared to small, crowded and very cluttered Bugis Nando's branch.
A review soon in OpenRice... will be linked-upated here! Watch this SPACEEE.
Miss Foo made an embarkation out from her house today in search of a perfect dress for an upcoming wedding event That sounds serious. Anyways, that was the goal, getting a dress. And of course, River Island being voted by most magazines to be the best place to find party dresses and of course, being one of the common things we have is that WE LOVE RIVER ISLAND. DEFINITELY THE MOST RELIABLE PLACE FOR THE BEST THINGS AT THE BEST TIME AND PLACE. (Y)

Fu, photooooo!

I'll leave with a sneak peek post, of what inspired me for my upcoming project...

Week 13, close!


She Bangs

In celebration of new hair, as promised, the hairstyle my parents want and the hairstyle I don't want, I took my birthday hat and matched it around with my new dress which ad stripes, and you know the rest - matching it with more stripes from my wardrobe. I bang my bangs! I do love my thick fringe.

It's been a while since I got acquainted again with dressing up - one class a day in a lazy afternoon just across my house doesn't necessarily need to be decked out however, I paired this earlier with my new Paul Direk blue striped shoulder-padded dress and it's just nice. :) Again, the hat is out again from my corner of my cabinet, second time out of my house!

Curse it, I know so sad the rad red color of my hair dyed at the back only to be designed as bottom accents in my hair isn't showing very well. How I love the color and need more color!

•wearing Paul Direk blue striped shoulder-padded dress, black Cotton On translucent top, The Executive red striped shirt.  Red bowler hat, turquoise stone necklace as bracelet, flower rings, chain necklace, Rotelli boots• 

 A bonus! The chain necklace more visible - a birthday gift as well from Cin and Lontong! ㅋㅋㅋ

   Story of my life today. I realized one journalism make-up class was at 10AM, but found no one and without waiting, because it was a gloomy and pouring morning I was still at my drowsy mode, I went back home to do a bit of slumber which a while later had problems because of sudden toilet urge. That was not nice at all.
   Then I checked my mail, as I e-mailed lecturer previously on class confirmation, she actually replied me 4AM saying class is at 10AM. I looked at my screen, 11:40AM. Never mind, my tummy is not at its best, I'd stay close to the toilet for a bit.
   By 1:30PM I was already OK and went off to school for a supposedly 'surprise class' in lecture, and was frantic as the door was closed! I banged the door, and try to hear something from the inside, was their voices? But it was silent (door was sound proof too) and tried to call coupla classmate but in the end there was NO CLASS. WHAAAAT. Went back home and went to do extra fangirl mode: JongKeyTV is such an addictive channel even though I DESPITE IT.
    Photography class at 4:30 to pitch on final lookbook project and I need to have 6 instead of 3 looks. Drat the ones I borrowed from my seniors below has only like, 3-4 pieces. Oh dear.


I went off to BA's Fashion Room to fine my other lovely Indon inhabitants who I wanted to discuss about the loukbouk project but I guess itwas more of a chit chat session - I was bored since I was going to wait for Mad for Garlic dinner with Clarisse, we talk talk talk got distracted with my red hat which was passed around to many other members of the room, here, there everywhere. Pass on the hat - this surely did gain much attention, this little red boushi.

Finally, 7+PM came around to meet Clarisse - I needed a break for a fangirl session and intern dilemma. We went out for my old old belated birthday promise, bringing her to Mad for Garlic, the Korean Italian Wine Bistro franchise. Photos will be up from her soon, so meanwhile I'll leave you guys lingering for Haagen Dazs Paradise of 6 mini flavors and waffle, chocolate drizzle and bits of sweet sour fruits of our dinner.

•Had the best Monday dinner ever! Garlic snowing Pizza consists of shrimp, large garlic flakes and cheese with mayonnaise - sweet taste! Mine was the Seafood Risotto. It was grandeurly filled with much seafood cuts, and this is the best promotion ever to get a plate of great seafood bits of squid, scallops,  and slice of sour cheese and vegetables. The ending was paradise indeed•

Come to think of it, my bangs looks like le ex boyfriend's old RDD look. Minus the red. HEY! I wanted red on my bangs, man! Ah, the stylist is really... cute trained. Sigh. When my bangs grow I'll do exactly what he does. Man, this is really a love and hate relationship. I shaved my hair, he shaved it after for Lucifer, now I'm returning trackback. Don't mind the rest, it's also a friend-enemy relationship with Key-Nicole. Remember that previous fat incident.

AND STILL ON TOP OF TRENDING TWITTER, #JONGKYUNG, THE BIG HEADLINE NEWS OF THE DAY. Congrats to the seriously lovey dovey couple of 1 month where Jjong treats her more like a Queen than a princess.
ohgoodnessifakqingenvyyounowsekyungineedaboyfriend. TAEYANG, I can be your girl!

 Lots are changing - firstly, not spending more time in this portal and more in my other three and a half: 1, 2, 3, 1/2. Tee hee. Then the text - I guess Times looks a bit nicer, almost like Garamond in a smaller form. So I hope reading this would be eye-friendlier now. And I'll drop by with more design whutderrfakqizvat finds, portfolio, and fashion steals and looks. You know where to find for most event coverage, Korean entertainment and Asian fashion news, as well as Indonesians in Singapore affairs.

Finally, another member shot of old team from another eye - camera! Hahaha must be one of Richard's boss'. Rad, rad, look.



Another round up of things with two special famous people I met this week on covering events, another transformation from me for a new season, and scoring a dinner!

That was the most amazing successful food photo I've ever taken, with my useless phone camera. The tricck is in daylight for sure but hello - the ice cream texture can't be tantalizing enough! I ordered a Big Dipper from Marble Slab to get the member card - with the ultra chocolate mix whatever - which now I know after checking their menu, Swiss Cocoa Buttercup. I'm always a chocolate sucker when it comes to ice cream. Yes! Now I'm a member. 10% off each time. The chocolate was as luscious and sinful as usual with kitkat break bits and Reese buttercups. Truthfully, they don't really have to do all that yakiniku move, do it like Baskin's Rocky Road putting in all marshmallows+almonds+chocolate syrup together. Nonetheless, we keep coming back for the richness of the sweet milk chocolate. Heaven.

Anyhow, back to a non-planned Sunday was unintended shopping spree going out with Clarisse. Iluma had a Thai Fashion fair, hence the bargain prices given (it's marked up for our market) in Thai market - I bet the tops I got were only less than $10 over there! I freakin' spent a round of $100 - don't blame me - for 6 pieces, and the last time I shopped was in July with UNIQLO and... *thinking hard* I'm sure I bought something.

Hail Paul Direk - a Thai designer brand sold at JJ market, where all cool bargain fashionable things are in Thailand. He studied in Bunka Japan OMFFFFFG and sojourned back home to build his very much affordable line. The three tee tops which nicely fits me is from Manythings. Sadly, no online portal yet but it's pretty girly line. The person selling was the designer's brother saying "ah no, I'm helping my sister to sell"
That is so kind of him!
I wanted a brother and still wants one! *Sorry my brother-complex rises again*

Monday was... blah. Cancelled class and verrrryy sluuuuuurrrreeed photography class. LMAO, that's how my unintentionally witty (or intentional) lecturer. Ridiculously funny when he doesn't mean it.

Tuesday night was with Bobby Chinn in Clarke Quay!

Because of TLC, the new revamped Discovery channel of Travel & Living Channel, and Chinn has a new show titled 'World Cafe: Middle East' airing starting this Monday at 10PM.

Adith's Lick 'N' Tell's tagline is so touche. Do pop by and see the chef wonderboy and all the glorious food he has tried/made. Most welcome, monsieur! :) Then there's me the happy oily kid getting Chinn's book, signed. I know that he wants it more and is more worthy, but, I love to keep as a keepsake! Get his recipe book and his tidbits in travelling around Vietnam/Hanoi titled 'Vietnamese Food'.
*Last photo taken in my room, with a new dusty mirror! Finally! I have a mirror! And an extra drawer top. OK that's it for room/life updates.

Friday night was the whooooo-hoooooooo, anyone declining my offer should be squriming in my seat now to not see Jung Junho in person. The actor who looks clueless in 'Righteous Ties' and had a one-sided love in the drama IRIS, looks dashingly handsome in person. No kidding.
Really really really no kidding.

Sadly, my camera sucks at night time. I really have gotten bad angles and just bad shots due to hard flash. Someone lend me a good DSLR! Sigh. T___T

 Is one of the lucky people among ajummas and other girls/ladies - I should be the youngest from the rest to get a picture with him! But a bad picture. My face is - egad! - bigger than his?!
Plus, I was LMAOing at myself as I appeared again in RAZOR TV for the photoshoot. Hey, I look better there compared to the interview stint for the K-Runway... *satisfied*

See the whole report of the event only in Korea.com!

On the fateful Saturday, it was Korean Pop Night Concert 2010 however the long-awaited e-mail didn't come at all (to have photography pass for the show) but I was still hoping for it to come. Nonetheless, to not repeat the face disaster last week in JYJ which I look horrid not Kim Tae Hee pretty while I asked a question and the trio (yes Jeje-Junsu-Micky) looked at me, I forced myself in to the salon in the morning to be ready at night (with attention grabbing hair so my divas GD and Key will see my way! kekeke~)

Say goodbye to that untamed wavy dry versus sleek straight undirectioned hair because...
The 4 hours from 11AM gave me a tamed transformation instead of the avant-garde layered cut I wanted.

This was what I wanted - saved and showed to the stylist:

Wanted layers like No. 1, hair color No. 2, Style of Dyeing No. 3 or No.1, Hair cut layer addition No. 4.

Ended up with pretty dangling curls and... what, black hair!?

Wait, the only part I like is that streak of red, placed at THE BACK. THE BACK. D:

Can't even see from this angle!

Nevermind. I have bangs! Bleached! Under the visible layer though. Goodness. I paid $*** for this instead of just $**. I am happy with the new cut but well, yea-a-a-a-h, I wasn't going on for cuuuute....
Will upload a outfit post next week in celebration of the new hair - promise. I'll suspense ya'll to the new look...

I have to wait for a change next year - another new season! Arrrghhhhh. So this is my new hair ch-ch-ch-change in... OH GOODNESS since last December '09 before my Japan trip which I haven't finished blogging! Ha ha ha ha (trails away running away)

So, I missed the K-Pop Night. SO WHAT.

bye boys! BB/SHINee left immed. at 1AM - I know Key couldn't sleep well without Jjong by
his side so they gotta go catch the earliest plane possible because he can't bear to be part with him•

Well, that's what I THOUGHT until...

I was totally WRONG. Fangirl session with Peggy was crucial because I left her (planned to go to concert together but I didn't get pass/sold ticket already) and while enjoying the sweet peanuts she passed me from her hometown, she brought the fateful camera who went with her and captured the BIGBANG! S-H-I-N-ee-SHINEY! and FTISLAND ROCKS! moments.

We were screaming in PS' Kopitiam didn't care anyone looked and all I could say each time was, "anjing!"countless times throughout the video - whether it's very very close record of Taeyang, Key, Minho, Taemin, GD and Top (of course Minhwan the drummer is always the hardest to catch) all I screamed was "anjing anjing anjiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing"

So the week ended with lots and lots, pouring, big drops of dogs. 'ANJING! They're sooooooo fineee'

And dang it dang it dang it THEY DID HAVE A MINI-PRESS CON DANG IT 아이구오! 진짜 아이ㅆ후! >; \

Only opened for Xin MSN and RAZORTV. Ah, Minhwan/Key/GD/Top/Youngbae looked so fine~

*Do-oh, the header logo is noneother from                                             which I introduced previously.
