Dammit

I lost my phone. On Saturday. No it's not an Iphone. It's a Samsung Jet. Left it on my bike seat when I was taking off my jacket to put in the box. And I was trying to take a shitload of stuff. Then after taking all I needed to and locking my box, I walked off. Just. Like. That. Then when I went for a friend's wedding dinner (in a car) later in the evening, I thought I had left my phone at home and didn't bring it. Towards the end of the dinner, I felt something was wrong. Don't ask me why, but I just did. And I decided to give my phone a call. Fuck. It was off.

Best part? The carpark was undergoing upgrading, so there were a LOT of bangla workers in the carpark. And you know they don't earn much. Meaning if they find a phone, no way are they going to return it. Unless I offer a monetary reward and stick the notice on the walls. (Sounds like an idea already.)

It had like 3 bars left which could last me another day, so there was no way the battery was flat. And I had phone and sim-locked the phone and card. Meaning if the person decided he felt guilty and wanted to return the phone, he couldn't turn it on to find any of my friend/mum's numbers. ARGHHH~~~~~

Please remind me to write my name and alternative contact number on the back of the battery cover if I get a new phone k? Cos I AM going to lock the phone, so it will be useless to the guy who finds it. And in case some foreign worker finds it he can't use it to call his home country using my line.

The most geck part is I lost ALL of my contacts and photos. I have been meaning to get a card reader so I could transfer my micro-SD card photos to my hard disk. And I had wanted to get it last week but it slipped my mind. Now all my filming photos and nice pictures which I took, which I had intended to blog about? ALL. GONE~~~~~~~~~~~~ 天啊~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 为什么呢要这样对我??? Take my phone, but return me my SIM card and micro-SD card~~~~~~~~~

*sobs*

I think I'm not going to spend money on a new phone. Shall just use my lao-pok old phone as replacement. Sigh...Swayness...

May good things come to me,
Silver

Birthday Party with Fabulous Food!

Hello!!! Thank you everyone!!! You've been kind this past week, and that guy? He's admitted his mistake and come to terms with it. We can't guarantee problem-free days from today on, as do all relationships, but we did have a good talk (albeit after shitloads of drama, but hey, maybe it has to happen for the understanding later on.) He's never rejected any pretty girl who dares try to hit on him, and he's acknowledged that he needs to learn how to. 知错已经是第一步,改不改得了得看他自己了。 Let's give him our encouragement, shall we? =)

As for myself, I've learnt to be nicer and kinder. Often than not, we take the people closest to us for granted. I'm guilty of it. So here I want to express my sincere apologies to him, and to my Mum. I know your daughter is one of the most stubborn out there, I know you mean well. I'll love myself better okay? As for any man who can take care of me better than you do, let time reveal him to you, whoever he may be.

Okay, time for the very overdue BIRTHDAY PARTY POST!!!!! (I'm gonna start on blogging about my travels as an aircrew, so actually this is really not so overdue la hor.)

 Getting ready before my guests arrive. The deft pair of hands belong to my hairstylist from my hair sponsor Shunji Matsuo! His name's Comb, by the way. So cool leh, Comb the hairstylist doing hair for Silver the star. Wahahahahaha~~~ Okay okay 不好笑....

But he's really good okay....
我觉得那天的头发是漂亮的。


While I was busy dolling myself up, the caterer set up the food. And there was only 1 person setting up everything!!!! Like so cool can~

Orange Clove. My caterer for the night.
No la it's not free, but it was money well-spent~ The food was wiped out that night. ;)

I was so busy running around that it completely slipped my mind to take pictures of the finished set-up with all the food!!!!! =(

A simple fare (halal), nothing lavish, a cosy gathering for family, and friends I haven't met in years...
Many of my long-lost friends couldn't make it due to the short notice, but I hope there'll be a chance to do a gathering party like that again.

Those who didn't come missed out on the great food. I usually never expect much from catered food, but the menu from Orange Clove drew me. I chose them because I've invited my U.M.M.I crew, and Orange Clove is the halal branch of Neo Garden, the only caterer I grew up knowing.
What was left of the Tauhu Goreng when I remembered I needed to take pictures. Lol.

Tauhu Goreng gravy.


The Pacific Dory, Sweet and Sour Chicken, and (what's left of) the very delicious Spaghetti Aglio Olio. Not your usual beehoon fried rice~ ;)


Thai Red Curry Prawn leh!!! I forgot to buy bread. With curries, I ALWAYS love them with bread. But I forgot that day, and there was no way I could go get any by the time I remembered. 
*kick myself (again)*

I didn't get to try this, but judging by the fact that none of it was left, it was good as well. ;)

I absolutely have to rave about the Honeydew Sago. I had like 3 bowls!!!! Damn sedap man~~~

Let me introduce you to (some of) the people in my life, other than some of the main characters in my life, Alton, and family. *wink*

This is Sherine. We met during the SQ swimming round of interview. I love her candidness and ability to speak freely what's on her mind. It's probably one reason why we hit it off immediately and click so well, no pretense, just good company. She once spoke up fiercely for me when one tao nao pai SQ girl gossiped about me and said this to Sherine:
"You and Silver are friends? Huh, Sherine, 我开始怀疑你的人格了"
Sherine "我才怀疑你的人格,you haven't even flown with Silver, much less know her, and yet you are talking bad about her."
Before Sherine spoke up for me, she and Sherine were damn machi...after the incident, I think they didn't really talk much. Till now, I don't know who the girl is, and seriously, it doesn't matter, but at that moment, I knew this is one friend I can keep for life.
Zha bor!!! I love you!!!

That's Kaiwen on the left, and Elaine on the right. 
Kaiwen's my cousin, but we were both Secondary 1 and 2 classmates in Nanyang, and Elaine? All 3 of us took Japanese Language as our third language, and we were classmates in MOELC (Ministry of Education Language Centre). I didn't complete the course due to my then very busy CCA, and we hardly keep in contact, but I know we'll still be together when all 3 of us are lugging children around. =D

Another good friend of mine I met in SQ, Val Val. We've gone hiking in Italy before!!! (More on that when I post up my travels.) She's been through so much, and I'm really happy that she's found her happiness. Ed, make sure she feels loved, each and every single day, you hear me? 


Ahahahahahahahaha!!!!! Leon and his brother Garrett!!! Leon was the only Superstar who could make it that day. (Sad la!) I miss the Superstars. We were a bunch that was never shy to act stupid and have good fun and great laughs. We should get everyone to meet up soon, like not when it's someone's wedding. Lol. 
Leon's a property agent now, though he still does music part-time (thank god, we don't wanna waste that great voice). Anyone wanna buy and sell houses in like Bt Timah district can go look for him. He specialises in that area. =)

 A surprise delivery!!!! I know it looks kinda dead cos I took this picture after this bouquet's been sitting my room for 5 days. But who would send flowers??? *excited*

OMG~ I nearly laughed and cried when I saw this card. 
Both of them had to work that night so they couldn't come. I totally wasn't expecting this!!!!
Thank you loves!!!!


Tasha!!!!! That's my daughter in U.M.M.I!!! Her real name's Adlina Nadra, and the one behind her is her very pretty mother Kak Mira. I found out Kak Mira used to sell satay downstairs, and I used to always wait for the familiar sound of (her dad calling) "Saaaaattaaaaaaaaaaaayyy" and ask permission from Mummy to go down and get some. I love Satay. Lol. When she told me she used to sell satay here I remembered that I had actually chatted to her before about her great figure and how I thought she was only 19 or 20 but she already has 4 kids!!! Adlina is the 4th. Now she has 5, and she still looks as hot as ever. Gee, I'll be sure to consult her when I decide to have my own family. ^.^


The 气势蓬勃 woman in black. She's someone I can always count on to be there other than my family.
My 干妈!!!谢谢你一直借耳朵给我这个“烂人”。就是喜欢你处理事情的方法~
偶像!!!


Joyce Stella. AKA -Admin on my facebook fanpage.
When I'm busy or not available, she helps me maintain the page and answer queries so you guys don't feel ignored. I really have to thank her for putting in the effort she has. 谢谢你JS!
Of course, with regards to updates from 本人, it will be sincerely from me to you. So don't worry that I will ask her to pretend to be me and help me update k? ;) 
因为我还是在乎你们的~


My manager Shavy Goh!!!
I am who I am now, partly because of him. Without him, there probably wouldn't be Silver And in U.M.M.I, nor newspaper interviews, nor many other things. =)
So, if you want to engage me for events or want me in your tv and print ads, look for this guy k? He can be reached at shavycasting@wawaartistes.com.sg
Should you need his number, email me yeah?
But if you just want to advertise on my blog, email me directly la. ;)


My closest-resemblance cousin. She looks almost exactly like me when I was her age!!!
她以后应该会跟我一样漂亮!


I cannot even begin to tell you how good this Mango-Yogurt Gelato cake is.
But I can tell you this - it's from Venezia. I used to work there, and the boss had this designed for me!!!
All those who didn't come that day, this would have to be the biggest thing you missed out on.


These are my cousins. We are like, the same generation you know? Our parents are either siblings or cousins, so they are my cousins, like 表妹s. They're all 6. It's like everyone decided 2004 was a good year to mate, reproduce and multiply...
Wah lao, 好明的话,这些都可以当我女儿了!!!! 天啊~~


I wish...
What, cannot say la~ Later don't come true how???
But you guys will know it's got to do with my career. ;)


^.^

好累...

有好久没 update 了。知道应该写我生日派对的 entry. 可是发生了好多事...让我整个人在心灵上累垮了。我很快就把过期的 entry 放上,okay?

 脸色是不是很不好看?还是依然娇艳呢?
*想太多*

Just took a hot shower. A long, hot shower. To wash away the unpleasant reminders, smells, sweat, tears, memories, of the clothes I just wore home. The same clothes I wore the night before. And the night before. The clothes stained with sting. With what neglect, oblivion and insensitivity turned into betrayal and deception.
All it took was 2 weeks, or perhaps maybe just 1, I can't be sure, to change the whole dimension of a relationship.

If there's one thing I really cannot stand, it's women who throw themselves at attached men. Knowingly. 
If they're unknowing, then well, I've nothing to say. Women want and need to be loved, after all. I understand that. But please don't throw yourself at attached men. What if you didn't throw yourself at him, but let him know you like him? Or entertain his several calls a day "just to chat" and tell me point-blank in the face there's nothing between the both of you. Betrayal is not when you've slept together, to be considered betrayal. Betrayal is what goes on in the heart. Deception is when you refuse to admit betrayal...

Her words rang in my head. And I start to wonder if he's the man I thought he wasn't. 

妈妈可能说得不是没有道理,我不懂得处理感情,就应该把精神投入在事业。感情是算不到 的,这一点我完全明白,它可以在短短几个星期,甚至几天变质; 感情是可以把我毁掉的。就因为我放得重,又不懂得收,这是我最大的弱点。妈妈还说,只要哪一天有个男人可以比我更有本事疼你,我就放手。

你会是那个人吗?如果不是,我真的放得下吗?还是我应该学会把感情处理得好一点,若真的坏了,人家再也不疼 自己了,该放手时就学会懂得放手。这次如果放了手,就真的给自己2-3年的时间,不碰感情了。大家帮我见证,好吗?

It's over now. I fought tooth and nail to make things right. I hope things are put back into place. He's back home. I'm not sure for how long, or if it's for good, like I wished for. I just know I'm glad, and thankful, he's home. It has put a huge strain on the relationship, on me, especially. But I can't really blame him, can I? After all, when I was neglected before in my past relationship, I sought refuge in other friends, male friends. Maybe it's karma, but I hope I've returned it. I learnt. I got my lesson. It's time to move on, and make beauty again. I never realised I hurt your feelings time and time again. So you turned to seek a breath of fresh air. I don't blame you anymore. Because the fault is not entirely yours. As long as you're back and you want to make it work, that's all that matters.


大家说我瘦了。我怎么都没感觉?瘦了应该算是好事吧?镜头上也好看一些。刚刚量了体重,是瘦了3公斤。恭喜我吗? =)

可能是脱水吧。哭了整整两天,流出的眼泪和鼻涕可能就占了1公斤。再加上前几天都没胃口,不瘦才怪。可能是上天看我之前太开心了,怎么减肥都不成功,给个打击逼我瘦。 因为我是那种受打击就会没胃口的人。



一切从跌倒爬起来再开始,

Friends - MMSP 6 Years Later

One day before my birthday, I was supposed to go for the Omy bloggers' interview, followed by a gathering with some friends whom I haven't seen in yeeeeears....

I remember meeting them 6 years ago. We were all in our before-twenties, nominated by friends (or themselves) to join this beauty pageant known as the Mr and Miss Singapore Polytechnic. We had no idea what to expect, the 12 of us. Obviously we didn't know each other right, since there's like 10000 other students .Okay maybe more...I've zero idea what the school population was. I knew before, since I was one of the executive committee members in the Students' Union, but heck, it's been 6 years....

I remember going there and knowing only this guy called Leonard. I got a sneaky suspicion my SPSU (SP Students' Union) juniors nominated me into this. Though I'd have no idea who exactly. Doesn't matter now. Thanks to him/her, I now have this cool bunch of friends. ^.^ especially Qiuting. That was how we met, and we never looked back since.



We meet up like occasionally, maybe once every 1-2 years (lol~), and this day was no exception. I was late, of course, since my interview started in the evening. But no one's food had arrived so I knew I wasn't TOO late...


Listening intently on, er, I think it was a racist or nationalitist joke. Everyone had to come up with one, and everyone did, except me. I think I'm quite lousy at this. Bleah~


Talking and laughing...
Yah I didn't get a camera for my birthday~ Oh well~~~


I think I'm better at taking camwhore pics....


Pardon the girl on the left if she looks like a ghost. She's currently into this gothic ghostly look.
And oh, she was the pageant's in-charge then. =)
And Qiuting had another blogger thing to attend, so she couldn't make it. =( 
Seriously, I was so looking forward to seeing her that day...

You know, after I arrived, I realised that I had forgotten to ask another contestant whom I have been actively msn-ing with along~! I had bever associated her with this group because we've never hung out with her before. And it was only after I got seated that I realised I forgot Terese!!!! Sorry babe!!!!! I think Raj and Leonard (the guys smsing the group) don't have your number! Next gathering jio you must come k? *apologetic* Paiseh Paiseh~~~


Suzhen with her get-up.
See what I mean? Lol~!!!


The folks surprised me with a birthday cake!!! 
I totally wasn't expecting this!!!

My first cake of the year. 
The cake was damn nice la!! It was from Four Leaves.
And I swear I've put on weight. Kns...time to diet and work out, again... =( 

You know, I really should go get Photoshop. I was watching an Omy video recently and found out this supposed very chio blogger looked so different from her pictures. And my mum was pissing me off about how I should learn to take pictures like the said blogger. *rolls eyes* I'll save this for another time...


I cut everyone a damn big piece la, considering there were only like 6 of us right?
This was what remains for me. Check out the layers. The last biscuit-y layer was the BEST man~~~


Sedap la~~~~~


I decided to bring it back for future staggered consumptions. Or I will end up looking like a ba zhang for my birthday party 3 days later...

Thanks guys! Many more gatherings to come k? And hopefully it's before anyone gets married!!! That's a scary thought!!! The fact that 6 years passed so quickly is already disturbing....

It Doesn't Do You Much Good

To piss me off...


I got this out of the blue. She has never sent me any msg prior to this, or interacted with me in any way....




What is wrong with these people? Having a private account is proud???? -.-" And what the hell has having a private account got to do with me thinking I'm Stefanie Sun? (Erm...any idiot can see the difference...even Wei Lian can tell the difference lor even though he cannot see....)


I went to check her page, in case she's some 12 year old kid whom I may accidentally hurt with my already sent-out reply. Wah lao eh her account also has privacy settings lor...

I think she tao nao pai.....



She should thank me if suddenly she gets like 50 requests asking to be on her only-19-friends list.

RAAAHHHH~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Benefit Bloggers' Party cum BIRTHDAY!!!!

Benefit. I first knew of this brand when I was in San Francisco some years back. The store was like a Candy store, and everything looked fun and girly. The pretty and quirky packaging appealed to me almost immediately (I'm like that too, no? ^.^), and I bought their signature Benetint (lip and cheek stain) and High Beam (a highlighter). Thus began my affair with Benefit Cosmetics. The brand wasn't available in Singapore then so whenever I go to the States, I'd go check if they have new stuff.

I found out recently that Benetint was originally developed for a stripper to make her nipples appear more pinkish. @.@

Don't apply on your nails hor! This one's for your cheeks and lips!!!
This looks really reddish, but it creates a nice mild rosy hue on wherever you choose to apply it. And it stays!!! I used to use this when I was flying, and the blusher stayed on for 20 over hours!!! 


 This creates a nice glow on your cheeks and along the bridge of the nose. Just dab and blend.



At the Benefit Party

The signature Benefit mannequin. 


Pretty packaging


They even have skincare products like Body Balms

None of us were game enough to have our make-up removed and redone, so poor Daphne, the coordinator for this event, had to sacrifice herself...

See the difference in the left and right side of the face? The make-up demo was done only on the left side.

I had some queries, so I was being demo-ed on to help answer my questions. Because the lady said that when you use Benefit, there is no particular order which you use things. You can already have some make-up on but you can still apply their "That Gal" brightening face primer over your makeup! I was naturally not convinced right? Since putting anything over a powdered face was sure to smudge the foundation and leave the powdered areas cakey. 
This is to be used under make-up or alone, but can apparently be reapplied to brighten your complexion anytime of the day!!! Just pat on. =D

The face primer. 

I thought this was really cute. Confessions of a Concealaholic. Fans of make-up, you know we ALL are concealaholics~ ;)

After being introduced to Benefit products, we were asked to make CUPCAKES!!!!!! Okay....decorate them....

Apron was cute, but I super don't like it cos it made me look fatter than I already am!!!! *sobs*

I shall just concentrate on trying to look pretty... lol

I had absolutely no inspiration on what I intended to do, but I just got started and hoped it would get me somewhere.


FAIL!!!!!!!
This has got to be my ugliest piece of artwork. Lol. I remember coming up with not-too-bad stuff while doing "Fun Learning" (the kids' edutainment show), but this was atrocious for my standards. Oh well...in the name of fun. Heh~

 All the Mess-ter-pieces.... My ugly cupcake's on the left. =P
The winning Cupcake belongs to Celestina. Hers is the neatest one on the top right. 

After the Cupcake session, the wonderful ladies from Benefit had a small surprise for me!

A birthday cupcake!!!!!!

Loves!~!~!

This was THE official cake okay, since this was THE cake given to me on my actual birthday~ Haha~

The sweet Daphne from Benefit.

You know, this is such a girly event, but guess who I brought along with me?





























It's a he. Yeah I'm damn bad for dragging him to the event, but he was sweet and nice and supportive and helped me take pictures. And nope, I haven't posted pictures of him before....

Did I mention he was sweet and nice?  =DD



































Curious??? 是个帅哥哦~~~









































If you ask, maybe I'll show you guys. But I'll leave you guys wanting for now... (I know, I'm damn bad right!!!!!! Muahahahahahaha!!!!!)

More on my birthday soon!!!!

Love,
*~Silver~*
