Important Lessons in Life


  • You are responsible for your own happiness, not other people.

  • Is your job your passion? Well done. If it isn't, it's also okay. You can still be happy.

  • Of all things you can learn in college, here are the two most important lessons for career success: how not to be a prick, and public speaking.

  • Your body is your life. If your body is not fit and healthy, you don't have a life. Spend money and time for health.

  • Don't be selfish douche. But also don't worry too much about other people's opinion. Find balance. I

  • Read. You will be smarter, and you can engage in conversations. And probably get laid too.


  • Don't be religious. Be spiritual. Know the difference.

  • Respect science. Your life depends on it.

  • Be nice and courteous to all people. Say thank you and smile to waiters, store staffs, anyone who helps you.

  • Invest in quality friends, not superficial acquaintances.

  • If it is only 3 stories, take the stairs, not elevator.

  • Occasionally, do charity/volunteer work. Not to get rewards in heaven, but to share your blessing. Give because you have received, not because you expect something.

  • Be nice to your parents, lest you regret it when they are gone.

  • You will break someone's heart, and yours by someone else. That's a fact of life. Suck it up.

  • Don't be too serious. We are all dead someday.

  • If you think someone you meet look nice today, say it so. You may just make someone's day.

  • Don't overeat. Cut sugar.

  • Don't bully people. In real life or online.

  • Karma has a powerful weapon. It's called social media.

  • Often times shit happens. Just random. Not because of what you did in the past, or gods hate you. Life has a lot of randomness. Acknowledge it.

  • Often time luck happens. Just random. Not because of what you did in the past, or gods love you. Life has a lot of randomness. Acknowledge it. Stay humble.

Found it so randomly when reading Henry Manampiring ask.fm and I post it here as a reminder for myself

YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite

Hello there!
Happy Ied Mubarak! I know it's sooo late, but I wish you guys a blissful Ramadhan, and may peaceful be upon us always.

Not really a lipstick girl, but so in to them lately. I guess having mom around is a big deal, (beside she cooks a very good and healthy meals) I can borrow her makeup! :D

So this YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite is actually my mom's. She's been a huge fan of YSL lipstick and lipgloss since I was a little girl. And I've never owned a YSL gloss, only lipstick, so I really want to try this gloss badly. Can it be as pretty as their famous YSL Lipstick?

The answer is YES!

Indeed YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite has a luxurious brightened pink color. Actually you can see the bottle looks pink coral but when I apply it, it becomes more like fuchsia on me. I kind a feel shy wearing this on, because the color is really pigmented in only one swipe!), but it's really great to steal the night when attending a party! 

The formula doesn't dry me out, which is a very important thing, and very comfortable to wear
! The color stays on me about 2-3 hours (it's gloss anyway), and leaves a beautiful stain which perfect for not so into bold lippie like me ;)

Here's my look wearing YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite






















Makeup that day:
Foundation - Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Fluid Foundation 574 (anyone want a review?)
Eyeliner - Sasatinnie Gel Eyeliner 01 Velvet Black
Brow - Dolly Wink Eyebrow Pencil 3 (run out of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, so I grabbed this, really not bad at all)
Mascara - Sasatinnie Party Queen 4D Hot Lash Mascara
Lipgloss - YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite

Chanel Lipstick: Rouge Allure Surprenante 129 (+ random chats)

Sooo, before this month ends, shall I write something?

I want to at least write one post in my blog every month (remembering one of resolution is to write regularly on this blog), so I searched my photo gallery and found old photo of me using this Chanel Lipstick Rouge Allure Surprenante 129.

Beside the texture which is so drying on my lips, chapped lips everywhere (yucks), the color is so beautiful. It instantly make me look more feminine. I combine it with Tarte Blissful (the one that Jen Frmheadtotoe uses the most on her youtube!) blush, and they look perfectly match. Love!

This is my look:

Here we have fasting month and the election. I hope everything will run just fine and peacefully. Been seeing too many harsh comments to both of the Presidents Candidates. People point of view may be vary between them, but actually we need the same thing, right? We all need a peaceful country to live in. So I really hope the election will go well.

And I really want to thank God, for our house dealing has been done so smoothly. We are so grateful, we can't thank Him enough for everything. The great feeling, when we first stepped in to our own house, the one we call 'home' was so satisfying :")

Still, we need to renovate this and that, but we decided we will enjoy every moment of it, one step at a time. Keep in faith, that everything will be done in His name.

Now in spare time, I browse more interior design webs. You probably want to check them out: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com ; http://www.ikeahackers.net ; http://www.livelovediy.com

Till the next post!

YSL Lipstick : Rouge Volupte Shine 13 Pink in Paris

Hello Monday!

I am back wearing my current favorite lipstick! Yes, it is YSL's. Have been reading a lot of great review about their quality. And here it is! 

I went to the YSL counter and asked for a not drying formula for my patchy lips, so the beauty assitant told me to get Rouge Volupte Shine. I did some swatching on my hand, and I purchased no 13 Pink in Paris. I think it is the most 'safe' color for every day look. The color looks so sweet and youthful without looking too much.

I like about the formula the most, it glides so smoothly on my lips, so buttery and creamy. The finish is glossy look, but it's not like lipgloss glossy look, it's more like glossy satin finish. And great thing about it is they leave a stain behind, which is great after wearing it about 4 or more hours later. 

This is my look wearing Pink in Paris:




I scroll to the website and there are much more YSL lipstick that I want to purchase, indeed they have great color and quality. I want some more! :D

Happy Monday!

Black Dress Never Fail

Had to attend a wedding party last weekend, and this was my outfit of that day


Somehow I feel so confident wearing black. Or maybe it was just the right Dorothy Perkins dress on me, or maybe it was the right black suede sling back heels from Sam Edelman that made me so happy going around and taking a lot of pictures :P 

Or maybe it was just because black dress never fail B-)
