Bits and Pieces of Everything

Yes, I know I promised to blog yesterday night but err... yea. I was tired from major lesson and rehearsals and stuff. O_O Was gonna blog, but decided I didn't want to end up with another half-hearted blog post.

So Anyways, some of the pictures below are WAY overdue cause *a-hem* yours truly has been too busy (and lazy) to edit and process them. =P

Here goes:

I forgot who did this but... =D

They were meant for each other

Well, the next few pics were taken when the family invaded Singapore. (I know, that was just about a gazillion years ago. So sue me)

We stayed in Festive Hotel, Sentosa:

The walkway:
Very err... "festive"

This was taken by my sis on our shared bunk-bed. The room was pure awesome-ness!
No kidding. The bunk bed was darn sturdy. I mean, if my sis could stay on it for the entire night and not cause the darn thing to crumble... =P

My brother acting like a Bollywood actor would around trees on a wide open field:
Those who don't know what the heck I'm talking about should watch this.

Part of the room:

Well, we met up with James, Guan Yu and Ray the following afternoon for lunch at Vivo. Cause the grandma got tired of walking, James and I rented a wheelchair for her use. After my family left, Ray and Guan Yu decided to have a little fun with it.

That's Ray with the basket of apples+oranges my family left with me:

And Guan Yu attempting to look "pitiful":
"You want an orange?"

I didn't wanna bomb my cluster fridge with the apples+oranges, so we resorted to storing them in Guan Yu's fridge:
Looking terribly cluttered.

Guan Yu attempts to rearrange the pile of fruits:

Violá! Neatly (somewhat) arranged:

We've been plagued with exam fever the past 3 weeks, but Guan Yu and I had a laugh whilst walking back to our rooms from the PGP bus stop because...

of this:
And this:

We had the opportunity to catch THE Berlin Phil rehearsing and recording (FOR FRIGGIN FREE!) Didn't go for the concert because... well, there were no bleeding tickets left. -.-

Oh well, we still got to hear them play the ENTIRE Mahler symphony. Awesome stuff, I tell you. They even brought their own camera crew (for the filming) and it was heavy duty machinery man. There were funny moments as well when the orchestra managers were jabbering to the orchestra in German, and James was translating bits and pieces of what they were saying for the benefit of me and Guan Yu.

That's Guan Yu posing:
The Berlin Philharmonic with the heavy-duty filming machines (check out the tracks at the front of the stage!):

My ticket. With Guan Yu pointing at "By Invitation Only". LOL!

And then of course, there were exams the next day...

Boon Ping, looking very relaxed:

After our academic exams, we were back to the practice-eat-practice-sleep routine. And then 2 days ago, for some reason (sick of practicing, actually), James suggested an impromptu movie outing. Now, I've been dying to watch "Tangled" ever since I saw the trailer, so of course I was game!

We went to Jurong Point:

And then I saw these. COPYCATS! "Fit Flop" came up with these first! Design almost the same man...
These have the exact same design and color my own pair of "Fit-Flops" are in:

Bought new hair accessories from here:
Got a REALLY chio (pretty) clip for SGD15!

Then it was time for...

TANGLED!
I tell you, Rapunzel is now officially my favorite Disney princess. And the prince is also not like most of the other Disney princes. I mean, for one, he's not a prince. Plus, he's a heck lot more handsome and funny.

The highlight, is the horse.

And this adorable chameleon!
Someone has this as his current desktop background. =P

I leave this video for you girls to "ohh-and-ahh" at:

The link is here.

More photoshop attempts will be coming up soon!



4 of the above pictures were courtesy of Google Images.
The rest were taken using my (lousy) Nokia XpressMusic camera.

I Will, I Will...

Blog about yesterday's random outing tonight.

But right now, I need to relax.

Major lesson was eff-ingly...

...


AWESOME!


Haha!

Quartet rehearsal in 30minutes. Wonder how it will go. Well, at least I'm not the one... Never mind. =D

I always think that somethings are better left unsaid.

Till tonight, toodles!

Nom Nom For The Eyes

Had a great evening out last night with James at Vivo.

Had dinner at "MusselGuys"

The food was dead awesome. I had spaghetti and James had some spicy chicken with fragrant rice thing. Dang, it was good~ We had ice cream after that too!

Paid a visit here:
Got something for someone as a Christmas present! Gonna have to do the remainder of my Christmas shopping before heading back to KL!

And of course, I can't resist a stop at Tangs whenever I go to Vivo!
Again, bought a Christmas present for someone. Cost me a bomb, that one. Definitely gauged a hole in my wallet. =(

Went to Vivomart to stock up on some essentials:

Concealer (cause I have dreadful skin O.O)

Eye shadow from L'oréal (cause it was highly recommended by Guan Yu) Lol.
Eye Makeup remover. (cause my mascara is just too damn strong)
And finally, the long awaited...
HARRY POTTER 7 PART 1!!!

It wasn't fantastic of anything, but yeah. Entertaining nonetheless. As mentioned on my Facebook, I just hope they didn't make the 2nd part EVEN closer to a horror film than the 1st part. It was scary enough as it is. My heart nearly failed me at one point. =(

Anyways, Hermione (Emma Watson) seemed to have endless clothes to wear when they were traveling (fashionable ones too, if I might add). She's so pretty!

Her photoshoot for Burberry:

Have I mentioned that her brother (Alex Watson) is hot too?
*drool*

And here's the video!


ENJOY!

Here's Another One!

Don't kill me for doing this! It was just too darn tempting! =P

Hmm... now where's a picture of my brother?

LOL!!!


Err... Yeah. =P

Okay...

So the blog has undergone a pretty drastic change. My blogging "style" (like as if I had one in the first place *rolls eyes*) will alter a little as well. The sarcasm and cynical remarks will remain, of course, I can't change THAT much, but yeah... Stay tuned to find out!

Anyways, since someone asked, this is the site that I used to photoshop my pictures.

Splashup:


It's great for Mac users because every other (free) photoshop application fails to download properly on Macs (cause they're so darn picky).

This is what the window looks like when you select "Jump Right In".


After you "Jump Right In", select the "File" icon and click "open image". You can then select a photo you wish to edit and yea... Let the magic begin. =)

For my previous picture, I used mainly the loop, pencil, brush and smudge to edit it. And yes Lina, I "sharpened my chin". LOL. If you have a square jaw (like I do), just use the smudge icon to line your jaw. Consequently, you'll have to re-shape your hair (like I had to do in my previous experiment).

Pay attention to the adjust functions that appear below "file/edit/image" when you click a particular function. It will allow you to adjust the tool's size and strength.

Sorry, but I can't be stuffed taking screenshots of every step I'm mentioning cause well, I still need to get back to studying after this. O.o!

That's all I've gotten so far, really. I LOVE the smudge function!

Here's a picture I edited using JUST the smudge function:


Disclaimer: I did NOT do this to spite Justin Bieber fans. =D

Have fun!

Photoshop Tryout

Because my brains were beginning to feel fried from studying so much Music History.

I did this just-for-fun, so don't go judging me yea?



And now, it's back to the books.

Of Runny Noses and Aching Limbs

I'm sniffing so much I'm surprised I haven't sucked my entire nose into my face yet.

O.O

On a brighter note, my major lesson went super duper well today. Hopefully I do well for tomorrow's as well. Pressure pressure!

*sneeze*

Dang, I think i'ma gonna be sick soon. Grr...

Oh, before I forget......

...


Happy 11 months dear. =)

It Is Now The Time...

TO GO SHOPPING!

Heehee~ It's the Tang's closed-door sale tomorrow and I'm dragging Guan Yu and James along! Gotta teach at 2.30pm first, then meeting them straight at Vivo for shopping and nice dinner. Can't friggin' wait!


I like this:

I've been eyeing these 2 watches since... forever! Should I get this one:
or this one?
This dress is cute but err... not very suitable to be worn in KL/Singapore leh~ O.O
And I need to visit this place:
Yes, I don't use much make-up, but I need to top up on my skin care stuff. Mainly the moisturizer and BB cream. Might get some other things if they have good promotions for them. Whee~!

Should I get this as well?
Cause my one and only brush is falling apart. Blergh.

Hopefully we'll manage to catch Harry Potter this weekend as well! Have to get tickets A.S.A.P. cause they'll be selling out fast!

But!!! First things first.

PRACTICE!!!


Don't anyone DARE say I'm being a shopaholic! I only shop once in a blue blue (purple?) moon, and it's to get stuff that I need/foresee needing in the near future. If I were a shopaholic, I wouldn't wait till Tang's goes on sale to buy stuff. And I'm only going cause I'm a card member and we get additional discounts. Kiamsiap (stingy) people like me can't be shopaholics lar... It took me 2 months to contemplate on whether to get a top from Hypnosis. But hey, my experience with the Nine West shoes tells me that it's always worth it to wait! I saved about 100bucks cause I stubbornly waited. =D

The Green Monster

It will EAT YOU UP then SPIT YOU OUT.


It is often YOUR fault that it affects you.


You feel it whether or not it makes sense.


And because you KNOW it doesn't make sense, you feel even worse.



And I'm not making much sense either so...

assignments...........

BAM!!!

My awesome new case!!!


Ain't it gorgeous??? Best part is, it's friggin light! The other day, I was walking up the stairs to the orchestra hall for rehearsal, I actually back tracked a few steps thinking that I forgot my violin but yea... there it was, slung on my shoulder but it was so light I didn't feel it there! =P Doesn't matter that I can't put my scores inside cause I usually keep them (scores) in my bag anyways. Plus, the shape of this case is awesome-er than all the other designs!

Walao, lao niang thought cannot get already cause the last time James and I checked in Esplanade's Gramercy, the last unit had been sold! I was =(=(=( when they told me I might have to wait 6 months!!! Was thinking about settling for the silver color design instead, but they had it in the main Gramercy branch!!! =D=D=D Dad, mom, my aunt, James and I went on Thursday and we got my case, then to Esplanade to get James' case. His is in the same color and design as mine. Haha! Only it's bigger (DUH!) and also more expensive. 3 times the price of mine! AFTER discount! -_-"

My dad was all: lucky our daughter plays the violin. O_O!!

Anyways, eating fruits now. The family dumped 12 apples on me before leaving, and they're all residing in Guan Yu's fridge. =P

Toodles!

Picture Post

Had an impromptu photo shoot thingy with Tarrant when he came over to YST for chitchat + hangout. =) Took a couple of photos with Guan Yu and of Guan Yu "trying" to stuff Tarrant's head into the bell of her trumpet. Lol!

This was taken before I started practicing:

When I started practicing:

Notice the slight frown on my face? =P

I think I was looking up at Guan Yu at this point of time. Lol.

Still practicing:

Gave up practicing =P

The "hip-shot", as how Tarrant terms it O_O:

The best shot of the lot:


And finally.......

HAHAHAHAHA! =D
