what a day (:

[edit: I've posted up some answers to your burning questions on my Formspring! I answered one about my decision to start a blog, and another on how I created my header!]


I slept at 6 am yesterday, and was woken up by a phone call from the public library at 12 noon. Then my bestie, F. (whom you probably all know and love dearly -- but not as much as I LOVE HER :D) texted me to come help her dye her hair "golden brown".

I rushed over madly (i.e. took about an hour and a half to fully wake up, get dressed in something comfy, and put on makeup) with my work uniform in a Roots bag (work @ 4:30 - 9:30) and a pair of fake Converse upon my feet.

Here are a few pics of me trying to help her. In the end, she gave up on me and told me she'd do it. Lolz.


... and TADA, here we are:

... more importantly, here's F.'s new hair colour:

My outfit for church on Sunday (yes, I've been going to church again! surprising, n'est-ce pas?):
I bought these heart-printed shorts, alongside other items, from Crew Heaven (facetrading Facebook group) and was thoroughly disappointed when I received the batch. For one thing, a sweater I bought did not look anything like the model's sweater, and I feel as if I've been completely ripped off.

Also, the quality of this pair of shorts is terrible!

And though the shorts were only priced at $13, my own mother remarked that I could've gotten a better quality pair of shorts directly from China for about $2 Canadian = =

So yup, that is my Facetrading horror story. Okay, it's not so bad. From afar, the shorts look cute. Though the fabric is rough and cheap, at least it looks wearable. Sigh. I'm thinking of DIYing it a bit to make it a bit more tapered. Dunno how I will achieve that since I suck at everything DIYish.

I'm sending out my love to all you lovelies!
{{2 more weeks before school! I need to get started on editing my Extended Essay and reviewing Chem and Bio! Start the Stressed-Out-It's-School-Again countdown!!!}}

Lol, funny thing: Flora and I walked into Starbucks to get some coffee before I had to bus to work, and two of my classmates were there as well -- typing away on their laptops, across from each other on a table. Very hard workers, these two. Also, they're both Asian, but that's beside the point. (; Hehe, I can make Asian jokes. So it reminded me that I had a LOT of homework to complete before the start of school. AND I have to go and take my L test for driving soon! Will be v. v. busy... ):

  1. those shorts look really nice on you, even if they are a bit rubbishy, and the whole outfit is really nice :) and is that top at the top of the post from topshop? gosh that was a lot of tops in one sentence.
    to wear with a denim blouse: well i guess you could go double denim? or wear it over a really pretty dress. i just don't know.
    and thank you for the congratulations! i was so so so pleased with my exam results, i jumped on everyone :') and i'll have to do a post just dedicated to my cartilage piercing! :')
    by the way, in order to get my hair like that, i curled the bottom layer with straighteners and then messed it up with my fingers. it was nice for about five minutes so next time... HAIRSPRAY.
    this was a stupidly long comment :D

  4. Your skin looks pretty flawless to me, and you told me that you have the worst skin in the world? That's far from the truth. Anyway, you're really pretty, and I love your smile. Hehe! It's really crappy that the shorts are of bad quality, and you really should complain to them about it. Maybe you would be able to get a refund from it or something along those lines.

    Congratulations on going back to Church. :)

  15. bummer for not having a topshop in canada! although you do get forever 21, right? we're getting a store in london soon, but it's like a 5 hour train ride! gaah. i can't guess where you got the top from but i'm going to assume it's not somewhere you're proud of right?
    short hair is fine and dandy but it gets really boring after a while, you can do so little with it! i'm at least growing it past my shoulders so i can do beehives or fishtail plaits.
    hey, just ebay your little heart out :') the worst they can do is close your account :/ why don't you ask your parents for help on the whole 18+ thing?

  19. haha..actually, I want to make a compliment about the heart shorts. but, it's still cute if you don't look it closely..
    Your story about helping your friend, made me miss my boarding house friends. I used to help them to dye their hair..

    Cheers,

  20. Good on you for going to Church again! I haven't been going for a while (because of work) and I used to hate it when I went anyway because the chairs were all hard and my church is filled with old people. . .

    Oh, and I also hate watching horror movies alone. I want to watch Nightmare on Elmstreet but none of my friends want to watch it either.

  23. Those shorts are cute, even if they are of poop quality.
    Oh well, you win some and you lose some, eh? ;)

    I love your giant, nerd-esque glasses--I need a pair of those!

    Also, I'm actually pretty stoked for school, probably b/c I'm finally TAKING COURSES I WANT! MAYUAHSASHDS~!!! :D
