I wouldn’t say I’m fashionable. I don’t really dress up that well, haha! But I do love dressing up and I’d like to document what I wore and tried on in the dressing room. So, I’ve created a tumblr account to document all my dressing up pictures.
Inspired by all the fashionista blogs and also of course Melody Song and Kahani of Frocking Around. I will try to post up some of my dresses! hahahaha.
As if this would last one day.We’ll see. This means I must wakey an hour earlier everyday to dress up! hahaha. I need a full length mirror. Ikea sale, here I come.
I’ve always wanted a maxi and I couldn’t find any that I like and cheap. I saw this maxi dress and wah lau, so must buy mode was kicked in. hahaha. I also bought another flowery sundress from the same store for RM30. lols. I could get it for cheaper, but owh well, since I was there and it was calling my name, I had to get it.
Speaking of furniture, I went to the Ikea sale today and found that the shelves are going for RM12.90! So I bought one. the 4 mirror pieces are also cheaper. I should get it while its cheap right? Plus Angela told me that I could buy cheap furniture at SS2. haha. Like some kinda old furniture shop. Maybe I should drop by one day and buy a cheap stool/dresser.
I feel so sad for Pam Song. She lost her macbook AND a 350G HD. haihs.
Lesson for all: DO NOT LEAVE LAPTOPS IN YOUR CARS!
Even if its for 10 minutes, or if you’re parked in front of the restaurant, or if you really need to go to the toilet. Don’t even leave wallets or anything valuable in your car. Robbery happens everywhere. Be careful and always always carry your lappie everywhere you go, even if it kills your shoulders.
I was at Penang over the weekend. Bought this really awesome maxi dress 😀 I heart. Also bought a few tops, dresses and stuff.
The reason I went there was to go for St Anne’s Feast at Bukit Mertajam. I haven’t been to BM for a long time and since I was free, I decided to follow me parents there. The mass was open air. My first time in an open air mass with like a million priests (ok, maybe 10 or so). We sat on cardbox boxes on the floor as my parents forgot that we’ll have to bring mats -_-
Going to St Anne’s feast brings back memories of my childhood and how we used to go there like almost every year. Lighting candles, procession and making sure we don’t burn people’s hair. lols. happened when I was there. Someone burnt someone’s hair. poor thing. Usually we don’t usually experience mass at all as the old church was too stuffy, we always came late -_-. But this time, we came super early as we thought mass was at 6. ended up to be at 830! super late and tired of standing already since 5pm.
Also found out that Yasmin Ahmad passed away over the weekend 🙁
RIP Yasmin. I will always miss your movies and commercials…May you inspire more movie makers in Malaysia to be like you and continue your work.
Why is everyone dying? This is just one sad time of the year.
Anyways, lookie at my looklet, as advertised by Lea. haha
Why so pretty one. Taken by Thai Jasmine in BKK. Why when I went there no such things as pretty gardens of flowers? Maybe I went to too many concrete gardens filled with clothes! hahaha.
Since I started this new life choice. HAHAHA, wtf choice of words to use?!
But, I’ll call it life choice. lols. instead of job. job sounds so, meh.
So anyways, I am now an awesome consultant. wtf, sounds so awesome right? HAHA. So anyways, this new life choice has been quite alright.
Although driving to Subang is a drag, esp going back home! GAH! Why so jam wan NKVE? Not all the time though, it is especially jam on fridays. other days is like moving jam….its not stagnant, but moving. I usually reach home in 45 mins on a normal 6pm drive back. But on fridays, sure jam like shit -_- Going to work is awesum though. It takes like 20-30 mins on a good day. Unless LDP decides to jam on me. Which happened once….almost reached late, but managed to reach on time. I start at 10. now, be jeles! hahaha. Actually last time I started at 11. so I woke up at 10…now just an hour earlier. hahaha.
But it has been alright. Workwise, I’m coping and still learning a lot. Like intern all over again, learning a new industry. new terms, new lingo, stuff i’m so not used to do. But I guess I have to be a sponge and google and learn all things new and master it… The thing is, stuff in this line is not learnable through google. its all about experiencing the things and learning from it. From different events, different clients, different types of press. But its awesum learning about all the press available and boy there are so many. You think there are so little on the shelves, but lemme tell you, there are so many! haha.
The room is like ice box though. so damn cold. haha. cannot wear sluttily to work cos too cold, wtf! haha. My dresscode is casualish and formal when we have plans to go out. So since it has been so cold, I’ve been like wearing jeans. but my jeans all like damn loose. Only one skinny jeans and one DP bootcut can fit. Others all like so ugly. old. not nice already. I so fail at pairing jeans with shirts, because I have like not many t shirts. I have stocked up so much on my dresses. But, so fail me, cos I cannot wear them to work, cos too cold! hahaha. maklumlah, all my dress all damn low cut, spag, short type. haha. Maybe I’ll get jackets and wear tights… then I will feel overdressed cos the boss is dresses casually. haha.
life choices, i tell you!
Anyways, I bought this AWESUM POSSUM white dress. Which is like a sundress which is like super innocent looking, but not quite! hahaha.
Working daily makes me miss my daily dose of Gilmore girls. I actually miss all that Rory-Lorelai bantering! hahaha. okay, maybe I shall watch one epi before i sleep!
Not that i’m going to get married anytime soon….Just planning. I always watch Discovery Home and Health, David Tutera, read designer blogs, watch movies and always come across ideas and stuff liddat for parties and weddings. I always tell myself, I want to do that someday….and now, I will list them down. Just in case I need it…lols.
I mean you may think im crazy…but should I get married one day, this handbook will come in handy don’t ya think? All thought of and just a reminder lah…I mean people say this is a very important day of my life…then if we have like one year to plan, where got enuff time??? hahahaha.
Well, this is a working list:) should be changed when needed:)
I will play Johann Pachelbel – Canon in D Major for my wedding… Hopefully Louanne will play for me! hahahahhaa…well, unless you’d wanna be one of my bridesmaids. HAHAHA. Well I only know one classical musician, so you can play for me lah. Cheap price ok?
The walking back/out part, maybe like Hans Zimmer’s Cry…the part where it builds up…damn nice!
Speaking of music, maybe have a live band at the dinner 🙂 Anyone wanna audition for my wedding dinner? Must play all my favourite songs. Which I shall list down one day. Songs for my wedding (there are loads of wedding songs on Youtube by independant artists! Ok, now too early to start biying those songs from iTunes….)!
Some must play (I should start making a folder):
Right Now, John Cena
Say a little Prayer, Diana King
Home, Michael Buble
I do, 98 degrees
Cinta Kita, Sheila Majid
How do you want me to love you, 911
Love Story, Taylor Swift
Anyone else but you, The Mouldy Peaches/Micheal Cera&Ellen Page
I hope you dance, Lee Ann Womack
Dreaming of you, Selena
Star, Bryan Adams
Hans Zimmer’s The Holiday soundtrack (How could I forget this!)
Do send me recommendations!
From Friends’ Chandler and Monica’s wedding, I saw how they had disposable camera on each table for the people to take wacky pictures of themselves. I want a disposable camera on each table too:)
Contrary to how usual Malaysian weddings are, where they just sit, I will ensure that i have place cards for seating with names and seat people who RSVP, so that my guests won’t have to like sit in awkward moments with strangers that they don’t know.
Of course, I must have cupcakes for my wedding. White ones, swirly maybe with colourful (depending on the theme maybe) sprinkles. Well design wise, can be changed lahh. But, I need to have cupcakes along with my 5 tier wedding cake. It has to be like so nicely done. If its too expansive, I shall make my own 😀 (budget!)
Owh, I want my flower girls (if any) to carry cupcake crystal bags (From Sex and the City Movie!). so cute! My flower girls don’t need to throw flowers, maybe confettis! hahahaha!
My hair will not be in a bun, please remind self NOT to tie hair in bun! hahaha. Maybe just leave it as it is.
I want it to be outdoors like in a beach :), but then again, we live in Malaysia and I’m catholic…so have to marry inside the church lah. Maybe add fake plants and flowers everywhere to make it look outdoorsy! lols
I also want like a lot of photogs taking photos.
Wedding Dress….still haven’t decided. Maybe like a decent one fro church and a slutty one for the dinner. HAHAHAA. Hopefully I will be size 10/12 by then so that I don’t look too fat?
My friends all should wear tasteful formalish/summerish/dresses. Dress Code: Bright colours/flowery prints. 😀 flowy and really awesome dresses! hehe. Men, wear black tie suit! but then again, once again, we’re living in Malaysia…
Wedding theme colours? Pink or Green. or both. Pink and green does well no? Or maybe just colourful, as that would be so me. Like bright green, pink, blue, yellow, those kinda colours: ) if it matters here in Malaysia with no seasons, I would like a Summer Wedding! 😀
Wedding invitations has to be really fun! I remember seeing a couple of design shows with great ideas! But this has to be highly dependent on the theme 😀 But whoever has addresses anymore? HAHAHA Maybe an email wedding invitation to a flash website where they get to RSVP on the website straightaway? I guess all my friends will emails right? HAHAHA
Website: Wow, this website must like have a lot of things in it. Must be set up very early in the wedding process to document all the things, well for people who are overseas and can’t attend my wedding, can view the process…. Like RSVP system. Picture Gallery. Blog. Wedding Registry. Music recommendations from friends. What else?
Who shall I invite for my wedding? Preferably a small sized wedding. But then again, im sure must invite all my extended families all. Ok, if you want in on my wedding, please comment! hahahahaha.
My wedding favours won’t be like cake -_- or like sweets -_-…It has to be something that they can keep and will always remember the wedding 😀
I have a couple of ideas:
A small bucket (like steel kind)/basket/box with loads of knick knacks in it.
A thank you card must be included, preferably name card sized where it will include our contacts, website address where they can view pictures once they’re up.
A “I attended Karen & husband’s name’s wedding.” stickers. lols.
Place card holders that they can take back as a wedding favor…
Maybe a fortune cookie?
I know in this part of the world, wedding registry is like non existent. BUT, I will have a wishlist/Wedding Registry. on my website and people who want to buy me gifts (which is a must, thank you) can choose from. Of course, I will choose a wide range of price for those who can afford 😀 hahahaha. If not Ang Pow also can lah. Can Maybank2u to me to save Ang Pow packets. lols
A rehearsal dinner? Well, not really practiced here in Malaysia. But I do want to have close family and friends for a dinner a few days before the wedding to just sit and chat, because you know how during weddings, you don’t really get to do much:)
Disclaimer: Karen is NOT getting married anytime soon. Just planning ahead. Just in case I decide to get married:) hahahahaha
So my days of bumming is over, not like there were many days. A week maybe? I am now working. dang!
Starting 10 am, I will be working in a PR company. lols. Farnee right how my life is heading to right now. Well, I shall explore this career and see where it goes. I still want my Singapore job. haihs. It would be perfect, a year contract maybe, until i further my studies…
But, life isn’t perfect and I would need to work to get money and spend it again.
the vicious cycle.
Still as awesome as ever and always posing so well, my sifu! hahaha
I met Lainey Boo wtf today. how I missed hanging out with her. haiyo.
Okay, so the memorial yesterday was emotional, but despite that the performances were awesome. One of my favourite performance was John Mayer’s version of Human Nature. He totally took my breath away. Seriously.
If you haven’t watched it yet, owh, please view the video below and oogle on John Mayer’s guitar playing skills.
John Mayer can you come now and serenade me with a song?
I have also finally found out who was that Kimora looking girl who lead the song Heal The World. She is Judith Hill. True as I thought, she is a mix Japanese+African American. heehee. She sang well together with all the other back singers who were supposed to sing with Michael at the This Is It Tour. They missed out on their chance to sing in front of the crowd, but they did however sing in front of the world last night 🙂 Good on them.
Still can’t get over the fact that MJ has passed on and we’ll never see him again. gah! Why do people die suddenly liddat? I still want more music!
Owh wells, I am so not sleepy thanks to last night’s memorial. I slept close to 5/6am and woke up at 3pm! Now I’m all awake and jolly. I have an appointment at 3pm tomorrow today. I hope all goes well.
So, in case you didn’t know, I am now unemployed and seeking for a job. HAHAHAH. Well, I am taking up a temp job as a PR exec for one month. I’ve always wanted to try out PR and now I can. I wish I had interned in more places during my college days! Sadly, now I can’t and need to just decide what I should do.
I am so not what I think I am. I mean if you asked me when I was my younger self, I would so not see myself as myself now – so unsure of my life. How lah liddat? What to do, what to study, how to make money, how to survive in this world?
gah! Can John Mayer come marry me now? Then all worries will be gone. He can play music for me and everyone else and I cook dinner for him.
I need to bake this weekend. At least Kek Batik or cupcakes, or brownies! I just read the recipe from Adam at emmagem.com and boy does it look so yummy! Plus he said this is a cannot screw up recipe! hahaha. I am never good with chocolates and boiling them. We’ll see how things goes.
Like A Comet Blazing ‘Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon
Like A Rainbow Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon
Shiny And Sparkly And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day Gone One Night
Like The Loss Of Sunlight On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon
Like A Castle Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon
Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon
Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day Gone One Night
Like A Sunset Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon
Thank you for your music, your humanitarian charity work, your childlike persona, your dream of making this world a better place, your constant plea to go green since before it was ever cool to be green now, your performances….everything else.
You’ve been a great inspiration and source of life for so many. You’ve been part of my life and I thank God for having me in the same era as you are in. Because then, I got to know the King of Pop..
The one who made a difference and made the world not care about whether they’re black or white. The one true LEGEND, king of Pop.
Stayed up tonight to watch the memorial. Seeing the casket being brought up to the middle of the stage by the Jackson brothers and the choir at the background, omg, so tear jerking already.
Even in his funeral, he had to go with a gold extravagant casket which really shows how extravagant his life was! Well suited for the King, I must say…
It was heartwarming listening to all the eulogies and music that were presented on the show. Brooke Shields made me tear……usher’s performance was also tear jerking…Until Marlon Jackson started talking….so emo already…..then when Paris Jackson said those last few words at the memorial, I couldn’t tahan anymore. Tears just rolled. nose clogged up.
Michael Jackson, you’ll be missed. I will share your music to my children and I hope they see you the way the world sees you today.
emo experience, but totally worth the staying up. You should watch it too.
Here in Malaysia and if you have ASTRO, watch the Michael Jackson memorial tribute repeats:
8am, 9pm on Channel [V]
Now, 4am, 240pm, 610pm,930pm, 11.10pm on E!
I think 8tv is repeating at night also, at 10ish pm…
I should go sleep now, as watching the repeats/CNN makes me sad even more 🙁
