“Benetint”-  It’s the original & consistenly voted the most popular rose-tinted cheek & lip stain around. It’s kiss-proof & waterproof.

I should stay @ home ..

22 07 2007

Should have stayed at home and study on Sat 21st July 2007

But agreed to accompany frien for her ‘touch-up’ tattoo session at Far East Plaza..

So juskawaime was out to Orchard by noon..

Unfortunately session is cancelled, so we had lunch at Sunflower Vegetarian..

laksa

Organic Laksa.. $6.50 Spicy, and not bad.. I will not say very fantastic (Coz no ‘ham’! Haha but organic food dun have ‘ham’ i guess..), but the ingredients are quite nice.. And organic food supposed to be healthy right? Ehh.. eat organic food is it meant will not become fat..? winkp

Managed to buy my Minolta Battery in one of the camera shop in Far East Square.. Heng arhh.. Nowadays got $$ also may not get the original one. And I have the last one!! WOOHOOO widegrin Hahhaaa So paid $38/- for it.. Hopefully this battery can last.. coz if I lost it or if it spoils.. I dun think I can get the original one anymore.. coz nobody keeps stocks of them anymore.. since Minolta is being taken over by Sony… Or maybe by then, it is time to get a new camera.. and hopefully by then, my bros r upgrading their cameras so I can ‘kapo’ their cameras… Haha .. winkp

Why I said I should stay at home..

Coz at least I will be studying at home..

If not, at least I will be resting at home..

Lastly, at least.. I will NOT be spending $$$ .. lots of $$$.. err

Look at my damages shopping items today:

  1. Far East Plaza – Minolta Battery = $38
  2. CKTangs – BeneFit – dr. feelgood = $60
  3. Watsons – SallyHansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat = $11.90
  4. Cathay Cineleisure Sol Mart dodoclub – Eyelashes x 5 = $19.50
  5. Cathay Cineleisure Sol Mart dodoclub – Treatment Keratin Hair = $11.50
  6. Cathay Cineleisure Sol Mart dodoclub – Nail remover = $3.90
  7. Cathay Cineleisure Sol Mart dodoclub – Lip & Eye Remover = $9.90
  8. City Plaza – Crocodile luggage 28″ = $75
  9. Food (Lunch + Dinner) = $15
  10. Groceries = $20

Total bleeding ~ $265  rolleyes err

Aihyooo like that… how to save $$$$ *sigh* *sianz* zz 

And at least half are on credit..  see how my credit card bills pilled up!?! grumph

Ok ok.. I have not been shopping ok.. so maybe I’m forgiven this time..? hehe  shy

Sooo lets look at my shopping stuffs.. Yippiee..

shopping items

Bought so many eyelashes.. coz I heard the eyelashes sold from the Korean shop (Cineleisure basement) are quite good..  And plus, I dunno how to choose.. so many varieties…. and they all are different…  ok lar.. vain me… hihi

Went to City Plaza to pickup a dress I sent for amendment, but shop was closed. So decided to have Arnold’s chicken for dinner, dine-in is impossible coz of the heavy dinner crowds, so order to-take-away.

 arnold

Went to browse around while waiting for my Arnold’s chicken be ready for collection. Saw the next-door bag shop.. was contemplating to buy a medium travelbag.. I have a 18″ cabinsize luggage (bought early this year) and a big samsonite luggage (which is with me for years… ) . Sometimes I don’t need that big luggage for travelling, but my 18″ is also too small to fit all my stuffs..  so I need a medium luggage.. Just like recent Munich trip, I borrowed a medium luggage from my housemate.. So .. Ok since boss is nice and gave me good price coz of Elsie (a friend I saw there, who happen to be boss’s acquintance) .. so here is my new medium luggage! *YEAH*

bag 

My 18″ luggage is also crocodile.. same design… so now I have a pair of crocodile luggages!! WOOHOO.. yeahyeah

pair

Ok, juskawaime is ready to travel! Anyone sponsoring?? (=

Not to forget the new friends I be-friend with today good :

  • Janice & Eryn from Benefit cosmetic counter @ C.K. Tang (sweet ladies)
  • PeiPei from SolMart @ Cathay Cineleisure Orchard (friendly and chatty lady- she wants to travel to Sydney with me! haha)
  • Eddy Tan from Maze Leather Goods @ City Plaza (humorous and nice boss)

Oh.. tell u something… the old neighbour of Eddy (who happened to be at his shop, waiting for Arnold’s chicken too)  is quite handsome.. aww  hihi





K800i or 6300

22 07 2007

juskawaime is contemplating which handphone to buy..

I am thinking if I should switch from Nokia…. to… Sony Ericsson.. (Coz most of my hps are Nokia).. I used to be pro-Nokia (maybe still now). No matter how shop owners or sales persons or friends tried to sell me other phones other than Nokia, I used to be skeptical.. I am a rather safe and conservative mode in choosing hp model.. so I always stick to Nokia..

My last hp is nokia 6230i.

What I want from a HP:

  • Camera
  • Loudspeaker
  • Bluetooth
  • Radio
  • Voice recorder
  • Support chinese
  • Playlist
  • mass sms
  • Voice recorder
  • 3G
  • prefer candy-bar hp (all my phones are candy-bar type)

I was initially looking at nokia models E65, N73, N80, N76, 6110 navi , 6300, 6288.. But I slowly began to accept other models like Sony Ericsson, Samsung within these few days.. I quite like my colleague’s sony ericsson W850i (white colour) — nice .. And I also like Jo’s K800i..

So finally choice is narrowed down to E65, N73, 6288, W850i & K800i.. and after a visit to Singtel’s shop last Friday.. here is my then conclusion:

  • E65 – Wifi – good! But no radio – I feel I’ll prefer radio.. And i was wondering whether I will really use the Wifi..
  • 6288 – value for $! Sliding fone, not so fond.. And it is also an old model – plus look like 6280 – just like my 6230i looks like 6230, so pple will say it is old model..
  • N73 – used to be my fav (coz I cannot afford N95). But I heard it always hang .. and many other unfavourable stories abt it.. so decide not to risk..
  • W850i – really good… walkman hp.. so sound is very good.. 1GB memory (nice) but sliding fone too.. 2MB camera and it is Sony Ericsson.. should I?
  • K800i – good review.. value for money.. Candybar hp.. 3.2MB camera (got flash somemore!) , radio, playlist (sound should not be that bad), 64mb internal memory plus 64mb external card (value for $)

Played around with Jo’s K800i on Friday.. and have ‘physco’ myself that it is indeed a good phone.. The issue of not-used-to-features-of-not-Nokia-phones can be tackled coz it is a matter of used-to-it.. Sony ericsson HP is not so difficult to used actually..

So eventually Sony ericsson K800i won!

But saw and played with Senorita-e’s nokia 6300 on saturday – I realized it is indeed quite good! Sleek, and have radio as well.. fits most of the criteria I want for hp.. but it is not 3G. But I guess I dun really use 3G much since I dun frequent travel to Korea and Japan (I have not been to these 2 countries also anyway.. haha) and it is nokia.. haha

Senorita-e’s 6300 and Jo’s K800i

phones

So which one should I take?

Hmm.. i guess the answer will be out soon..

Everything about them had to be kept hushed and confidential before 20th July 2007, until the Top 20 Star Search contestants, best out of the 1500 lot from Singapore, Taiwan, China and Malaysia, had their ‘coming-out’ press conference thrown for them yesterday afternoon at the Pan Pacific Hotel. ….

And yes!!!! My best friend’s bro is in top 20 finalists for the Star Search 2007 [才华横溢出新秀2007] !! WOoHOO!!  yeahyeah

All the best,Jackson!! 我们会永远支持你,加油!good

The Almost-A-Chippendale
Name: Tan Sia Chong Jackson

From: Singapore
Looks like: Taiwanese actor/singer/host Zhang Shanwei
Age: 23
Occupation: Student at Singapore Management University, Economics
Iron Man factor: Timing for his second Osim triathlon (1.5km swim; 10km run; 40km biking) in 2005 was two hours and 35 minutes and was ranked 21 out of 63 participants.

Jackson would be great prancing around in children programmes like his Taiwanese half if it wasn’t for his hulking V-shape build, no doubt a trophy from his participation in triathlons. In an Ally McBeal moment, I could almost see the buttons of his shirt giving up its valiant struggle to keep his tanned chest covered and doing a Chippendale in front of me. Yay!

陈侠中说自己非常向往娱乐圈光芒四射的日子,曾经有星探邀他当模特儿,他拒绝了,理由是:那个世界太“奢华”了。陈侠中外型非常“熟男”,好在他的个性随和,容易融入大伙话题,不至于显得格格不入。





Hello!

21 07 2007

Hello! Singtel at Takashimaya S. C #B2-12 has my fav service consultant..

Ok I am not a singtel subscriber… haha…. but managed to be served by him when I was accompanying Jo to buy a new hp some time back then..

His name is Jeff Lim..

Go and look for him if you need any solutions or u have any qs/problems in hp or hp line package…

He is like a walking ‘dictionary’ .. ask him what qs.. he can answer u..  Which meant he is a good employees who knows his products inside-outside.. He will understand ur usage and recommend accordingly.. And not only he will give u frank and good advices.. he even extended his service to inform or educate you in having better packages/deal.. 

Like.. do u know that u can save on Singtel’s caller-id monthly charges if you apply for Singtel Credit card? I dunno.. Jo dunno then.. But he advised Jo to apply since this promo/service is available.. And who gets the benefit? Jo, as the customer!

And of course, Jo is happy.

Coz she feels she got good deal..

When Jo is happy, she will stay in Singtel..

juskawaime like such good & extra value-added service! good

Coz I am a ‘kiasu’ customer who wants to pay less and get more! haha =P

Thanx Jeff! (=

That is why I am blogging abt him to praise his work..

Since I lost my hp, I’m now ‘cracking my brain’ to evaluate what hp should I get..  Nokia, Samsung, Sony Erricsson, HTC, Dopod, O2… etc  Done some researches.. have narrowed down to some models.. And a friend also happens to want to get a new hp as well… so in the end, we went to Jeff’s Singtel shop at Taka again.. hoping to get some solutions/answers/advices from him…

But u know sometimes customers can be quite bitch…

Yes juskawaime can be very bitchy at times.. tssk tssk poor staffs … winkp

Again, Jeff can ‘tahan’ our bitchiness & auntiness and handled us 4 ladies very well yesterday, making us all happy & satisfied..  *applause*

And yes.. we have conclusions now… ha

I think I should be switching from Nokia…. to… Sony Ericsson..





A day of joy & sadness

21 07 2007

Happened to bump to a JC friend – GX – last Sunday..

He was back from Beijing, after working there for 3 years (?)

So we arranged for a meet up on thursday with Jen as well.. before he flys off to HK..

At Modesto’s at vivo city ..

It is supposed to be a happy and joyful day..

coz I am in my new dress .. with my new hotpant.. different image lehh love

But alas.. it is the unfateful that I lost my hp as well… sobs

Ok… I have pacify myself with the loss.. I take it as a sign for me to let go of the past, get a new hp and clean up my contact list.. See I know how to look at the positive side of life.. hihi Haha .. but no choice also right?? winkp What is done .. is doneded.. Opps I meant what is done is done.. No point crying over spilt milk.. Shall learn 2 lessons from here.. Be more careful & backup my hp..

Ok back to my story.. still on the hp part..

I was very amused and fastinated by GX’s unique hp..

Presenting… the water bottle BMW hp!

bmw hp

COOooool bohh! good

Got MP3 playlist, camera, sms, bluetooth.. as well.. NOt 3G though.. But still.. it is FANTASTIC!!! Very special and unique.. Can’t really get it in sg. He bought it in China for abt $200? I tried to ‘physcho’ (persuade) GX to depart his hp, and give it to me.. coz I am the poor little girl who lost my hp..  (must pacify me marhh) but unfortunately he is not gentleman enough! zz haha

Well well.. we had fulfilling dinner.. Buy 1 get 1 free for pasta and pizza (from mon-thurs?) for UOB Creditcard holder.. WOHOOO!! Great deal huh! So we had 3 pasta & 1 pizza – paid for 2 of them only .. Total up to be $50++

Lost my HP

20 07 2007

Yes…

I am careless..

I lost my hp again…

At the ladies toilet again…

Only this time, it is Vivo’s B2 toilet, not my office’s toilet..

So I guess I will not be lucky 2nd time..

So that means bye bye to my hp.. yes maybe it is time to let it go..

But my sms.. my contacts.. my fotos… my songs/mp3 .. my recordings.. all gone too..

*sigh*

*sianz*

Well looking at the bright side, at least:

  • the hp I lost is an old one.. (I was contemplating to buy a new hp actually, so it will be worse if I lost the few-days old hp!)
  • the hp accessories are old ones (I delayed changing my hp accessories coz I thought maybe wait .. change it for my new hp instead)
  • I didn’t lost my wallet.. losing $, IC, Creditcards.. will be much more troublesome..  I think losing hp is heartache for the stuffs inside the hp. 100++ sms inside leh.. Have used my hp for 2yrs++ of course have many memories with and in it.. *sigh*

All my friends, pls sms me ur hp no.

Thank you thank you..

*Was meeting friends at vivo at a restaurant. Once reach restaurant, then I found out that I lost my HP. Should have lost it in the toilet at cubicle or washroom area… Using restaurant phone, called my own hp no. But it was already to the voice message (meaning the person who took my hp has switched off the hp).. Damn.. they are FAST! coz it is like mins away only!!





珍惜眼前人

19 07 2007

juskawaime was reading the DJ  丁志勇 blog.. was upset to know that his beloved aunt has passed away due to recent accident.. It is indeed unfortunate..

I felt a great loss for him even though I do not them personally..

We are a bunch of 有感情的 ‘动物’。。 真的。 我们会为别人的难过而难过, 会为别人的悲伤而悲伤, 会为别人的损失而惋惜,会为别人的不幸而不知所措, 也会别人的事而与主祷告。 当然 我们也会为别人的开心而开心,会为别人的喜悦而笑不拢嘴,会为别人的好而给于祝福和祷告。。

想对丁志勇说:

“请节哀顺便,别太过自责或难过。

天下无不散之宴席,请你保重。

起码你有过与你二姑的欢乐回忆,请你记得她的话和她的好。

你的二姑会要你好好的生活,也一起付出和享受她的那一份。”

也想对自己和朋友说:

生命很灿烂,也很脆弱。

我们不知道 主 几时要把我们或我们身边的人带走。

所以

要珍惜眼前人

要珍惜现在拥有的。

因为一切不是理所当然的。。

因为一切不一定天长地久。。

juskawaime 要打电话给mama和papa。。
