Loots From GSS

Friday, June 19, 2015

This season's Great Singapore Sale has left me happily broke with all the super worthwhile purchases ! The very first damage that made me grin from ear to ear like a retard was definitely the Salvatore Ferragamo varina shoes.

This is one item that I have coveted for the longest time! With the lovely Pre-Spring 2015 Fleur Blue varina on 30% discount, I knew I had to get this or I'd regret! Not to mention, the latest season has this super pretty burgundy shade, which I am awaiting arrival in sunny island, Singapore.

Then, there is the Giant City in the shade of baby blue which matches perfectly with my varinas. In actual fact, I wasn't really looking to get a new bag. But the 30% + further 10% reduction for Citibank cardholders didn't exactly help with controlling the urge to get it.

With that, however, I'd say that there was totally no regrets in getting this lovely bag. The size of it, together with the shoulder sling makes it such a practical bag that I've nothing to complain about! The only thing I am scared of now is getting it stained as the colour is pretty light. But this is one bag I'm definitely going to baby. (:

It has been 2 years since I have updated this space due to sheer laziness and being busy. However, as I was back to check out this space, I decided to give it the much needed revival.

So, here's an Adidas Original tee-shirt which I checked out at the store. It was going at $30+, really cheap compared to it's original price if you ask me. Still undecided if I should loot it. What do you think? Haha!

Lastly, on a totally random note, I came across an old friend. And it spurred me on these thoughts, "Sometimes, we don't mean to hurt people, but we take a step back for fear of getting hurt."

Lovell Classic Quilted Bag in Red

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Hi all, I know it's been awhile since I've blogged! I am back here again for an update. So, I've had many friends asking me where I got this Chanel Boy inspired bag in a lovely shade of red. Hence, I've decided to do up a post on it. Good things are meant to be shared, right ?? (: Meanwhile, I've put up some outfit of the day posts with this lovely bag as well.

So, back to where I got this bag... It's actually from TeaRoseLove! (: You have no idea how much I went gaga over this bag when I first received it in the mail. The quality was awesome and you have no idea lovely it is until you get to see it in real life! (: No complains on this bag at all, except that the chains can be a little heavy.

I was actually having a hard time deciding whether to get the Lovell Classic Quilted Bag in red or noir!! :X Friends who knows me will know that red is my favourite colour, but at the same time, the noir was a classic! So, you could imagine the struggle to make a decision. In the end, I decided on the red of course, as I have many black ones already...

Apart from that, TeaRoseLove also has this bag in other gorgeous colours such as Noir, Ivory, Hot Pink, Rose and Monochrome. All items from their website are pre-ordered, so you'll have to wait for 1-2 weeks.

Getting tempted by this lovely shade of red already? Head down now to get yours before it goes out of stock! As their website states, there are only limited pieces. So, what are you waiting for?

Success Or Failure

Friday, August 16, 2013

[WARNING: This is going to be a long, wordy post which may bore some!]

Earlier today, I was having a conversation with someone whom I regard as a mentor. It got me pondering on quite a few things. So during my lone bus ride back home, plugged into my favourite sentimentals, it dawned upon me that I should write up on it as a self-reminder.

Success or failure? It's a question we tend to ask ourselves from time to time. I believe there are many of us out there who has felt down because of certain setbacks you have met. But, the question is, "Do you still have the determination to counter it and take the path towards success?".

Now, to touch on a few factors that contributes to failure. There are generally 2 main factors; Internal and external. More on this below:


1. Complacency - Now, this killer word is capable from bringing you from sky-high or almost there to a zero! Many a times, we let our success or improvements get into our heads. We take it for granted to such extent that we end up neglecting to keep up with what we are doing. Not a good sign, I must say, because all our efforts previously will just come to naught with this continuous bad habit.

2. Character - Egoism, laziness, lack of self-esteem etc. I believe all these negative qualities are self-explanatory. Habits, once practiced long enough can become part of us, which in turn, equates to our character. And habits itself, are mostly picked up from external factors, which brings me to the next point.


1. Peers' Influence - This is something that many of us have been there and done that, I assume. We get swayed from our principles by our friend's actions and comments for fear of being ostracised by the group or simply because we choose to. Usually, we are aware of it's side-effects, but still end up doing it anyway.

2. External pressure - Admittedly, there are countless sources of pressure in fast-paced society like ours. Some of us may begin to crumble upon it being exerted and end up going downhill. In this case, I guess it's about learning how to handle the pressure and the difficulties we face.

3. Personal Upbringing - It's sad, but true. Some of us may develop traits contributing to failure due to upbringing. Because as a child, we start to learn. It's the stage where we absorb the fastest, so parents and guardians play a big part in educating us. As children, we unknowingly mirror the adults and start picking up traits from them, be it good or bad.

At this point, after recognising all these contributing factors, we start to reflect on ourselves and wonder how we can prevent it / improve on it. This is the time, the advice I've gotten, coupled with what I have reflected on, comes into place. It may not be the best advice, but I believe it's one of the stepping stones to true success.
How To Improve The Situation

1. Seek Advice From People - It's a good thing to constantly seek self-improvement. However there are times when we may not be the best person to judge for ourselves as there is something called "The Blind Spots". By seeking advice from people, I mean from people who genuinely care. They can be your family, your close friends and even your superior at work. Because these people who really wants the better for you will point out your blind spots and give you a more holistic view.

2. Evaluate - Now that we have received feedback, it is time for us to evaluate and weigh the pros and the cons. It is time to reflect on those feedback which were passed on to us. Do you think it makes sense? Be true to yourself.

3. Willingness To Admit One's Fault And Accept Constructive Criticisms - When we do ask for advice, be prepared for negative feedback. It is precisely because these people care, will they advice us on how we can make ourselves a better us. So embrace it and work on it! If we don't, then the first 2 points will just become obselete.

4. Self-Awareness - Very important point, which was pointed out to me. Yes, it's self-awareness. We have to be aware of our actions. It is something which many of us neglect. It is through self-awareness which will enable to constantly spot our mistakes and work on it. It is also through this point that may trigger us to stop ourselves from making the wrong move.

5. Perseverance - Changing one's habit isn't not going to be easy. For that matter, we may fail a million times before we get to our destination. Hence, without perseverance, what success is there to speak of? Giving up shouldn't be an option despite the tough route.

6. Humble - Always be humble and stay grounded. As mentioned earlier, complacency is a killer! No matter how successful you are, be humble, stay grounded. And never, ever let the success get into your head. There is a fine line between self-confidence and over-confidence.

Having all these said, I do not consider myself a successful person. In fact, I was just in the situation mentioned at the start of the post. But slowly and surely, I am striving to follow these steps towards a better me. (:

Sakura International Buffet Treat

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Hello, my fellow readers ~! (: So yesterday, the boy picked me up after work and decided to bring me for an impromptu buffet treat at Sakura International Buffet @ Tampines SAFRA. And me being me, the first thing that I chiong-ed for was the sashimi. Friends who know me well enough will know how much I love it!!

More pictures of the food we had! (: If you are wondering what that clove-looking thing is, it's actually squids. When it was first served, I even thought it was garlics! :X Hahaha, silly me! The food was kind of meh though, not as good as I thought. ):

Then, there was what the chinese calls "dou miao" and salmon teriyaki as well. The salmon teriyaki was pretty okay in my opinion. However, the boy kept gobbling up the dou miao. It's one of the rare moments I've seen him eat so healthy! Hahaha!! Opps! :X

My favourite dishes for the night! Golden sand prawns and boiled prawns. The shell of the boiled prawns came out really easily, which in turn meant it was really fresh and well-cooked. It was one of the best dish of the night in my opinion. (:

Apart from that, of course, was the Ben & Jerry's ice-cream with their in-house brownies. Really heavenly! XD The thought of that is making me salivate already... Too bad I was too full from the sashimi feast to finish the ice-cream that I took. ): Overall, I thought the spread there was just average. It seems that the standard have dropped (from what I last remembered).

Last but not least, I also received my first birthday card from Xcellink! (: For the past year, they have never failed to send me a card. Thank you so much for your effort. ^^ Speaking of which, it makes me feel so old that my 22nd is in less than 2 weeks time. :/ Ohwells.... I definitely hope this year is going to be a blast. (:

Rainy Tuesday x New Samsung Galaxy S4 Cover

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Hey there ~!! How has your Tuesday been? Mine was a lazy lazy one with the perfect weather to sleep in.. But there I was, 8 in the morning, dragging myself up for work.... )': I wish I could sleep in, I really do!! *Inserts puppy eyes*

However, once I reached work it was an entirely different issue with both my lovely colleagues here. We were joking around the whole time. (Pardon my QQ fringe, it's not exactly a good fringe day. :/)

So, during lunch, I finally got to try the fish soup beehoon with milk.... Honestly, I think it was just so-so! Pretty disappointing since I saw so many people having that. My all-time favourite stall is still the one at Tanjong Pagar PSA Complex. That totally beats this stall hands down ~!! Best of all the fish soup stalls I've tried to date! (;

In addition, my baby S4 also had "new clothes" for the day! ^^ Got this super cute nautical, polka dotted theme cover from Serangoon, NEX Shopping Center after work yesterday. (;

Being a nautical theme lover, I knew I had to grab this when I set my eyes on it weeks back, while there with my friends. SO HERE IT IS!! XD I'm super into the smooth, matte feeling of this cover. (If that even makes sense.) And for $15, I thought the price is pretty ok!

For those who are interested, they are located at the cinema level of NEX and the name of the shop is Benoi Mobile Accessories. They have a selection of cute covers there. If you are thinking of getting a new cover for your phone, you can consider going down!! (:

Back to Work After A Long Weekend

Monday, August 12, 2013

Back to work after a long weekend! So, this morning was really hectic with me rushing to the bank before work to get my debit card replaced because my itchy hands decided to tear the damaged film off the card and ended up REALLY damaging it!! ):

My team lead was even joking with me how I spent too much which was why my card got damaged. Lol!! :3 Anyways, I think it's super cool how the new DBS card has this pay wave function, though not many places has it yet.. (Okay luh, I know it has been around for sometime and I'm damn lag.) Ohwells!!

Then, off to work. Got myself my favourite iced chai tea latte and breakfast wrap for brunch while on the way.... (: By the time I got to the office however, the wrap was already soggy. )': Note to self: Never dapao anything that can get soggy for lunch! (Stupidest thing to do!)

In the end, I didn't even finish it. Really wasted. I still have half the wrap lying here right beside me now! Opps! :X
