Words could not describe how I am feeling right now. I just hope this relationship will last to infinity and beyond (In Shaa Allah).
Happy 5th Anniversary to MFM, xoxo.

7th September 2013 - ORD loh!
I got the opportunity to attend my boyfriend's ORD parade with his family as my companion.
My day started so much earlier than when I have to do opening shift for work. I'm glad I get to be a part of his big day today.
2 years flew by just like that but I'm definitely proud of what he had achieved throughout his 2 years as an NSF. He did great I must say.
His family has been really sweet for treating me lunch and giving me a ride back home. I really appreciate that. Things went on smoothly.
Being a 2ic, attain to be a CFC, Charlie's best soldier, NSF of the year and a lot more achievements plus a great record and testimonial. The 2 years was definitely well spent.
Congratulations to my dear soldier! I'm proud of you, xoxo.
3rd September 2013, Boyfriend's army event // 14th mono-intake ORD function.
He asked me to come along for his social night event. How sweet that he wants me to be there with him.
They got themselves a new-look beret. The dates/partners were the ones to give it to them while they are in line.
It's nice to know and see my boyfriend introducing his friends to me. I am lucky to have him not being shy to show everyone that I'm his. On top of that, I'm glad too that the ladies and I got along as well.
The night ended well and I honestly had a good time. And not forgetting, congratulations to Charlie for getting the best company award!

I can truly understand how it feels like. I am still suffering from acne and still learning to pick up my confidence. I'm feeling better about myself day by day although there are times where my self esteem is below zero.
It's sad that people condemn people like me for having make up on when I am suffering from acne. I mean, who are they to condemn people like me? We are humans too afterall. No one is perfect. It just happens that our imperfections are clearly shown because we have acne. Yes it's ugly, you think we want them? No, definitely not. Make up is for anyone and everyone. Honestly I silently curse those with good complexion who condemn people with acne to have something that will scar their complexion for life.
Make up is probably the only way where we can feel more beautiful and have a feel of what is like to have "good skin". If only such people don't exist, people like them just brings people like me down. It's already so hard for us to bring ourselves up.
I've learnt that the more I bring myself down with such words from such people, there will be no way in which I could gain confidence. I just got to suck it up and bring myself up on my own. If I'm not going to do that, who else will? I'm still going to dress myself up, I'm still going to tell myself I'm beautiful, I'm still going to put on make up - no one is going to stop me from this. Just because I don't have a good complexion doesn't mean I couldn't put on make up. I love make up and I'm going to pursue it - again, no one is going to stop me from doing it.
No doubt it's frustrating having to deal with the fact that each time I wake up in the morning and look at myself in the mirror, what I see are cysts, zits, deep scarring and redness all over my skin. It makes me sad too because I can't wake up looking at myself with such clear skin. Oh well, life's unfair.
Make up makes me feel better about how I look. It gives me a boost of confidence. This is the reason why my love for make up grew. My intention of putting on make up initially was to only reduce the appearance of blemishes/scarring but slowly I learn new things and develop a passion for make up.
People say make up is fake and bla bla bla. I say make up is an art. It requires you to develop a skill in order for you to achieve certain things. You can't just take a bottle of liquid foundation, pour some onto the back of your had and start slathering it with your fingers without any techniques. It took me a while to master some techniques. Some people just do not understand what is make up really about. It's more than just covering up blemishes and adding colours to your face. It's more of enhancing the natural beauty that a person. On top of that, make up creates moods and emotions to certain events.
People will say, "Oh girl you have acne you shouldn't be putting make up on your face, it will just worsen your condition. Your skin is already so bad, make up won't help." Boo to you. It doesn't affect me any more. Make up on its own doesn't clog your pores. What will clog your pores are, if you allergic to certain ingredients (for this you have to find out on your own), if the brushes you used are not cleaned, if you do not remove your make up entirely before going to bed.
I've tried a fair amount of products to finally realize which are better for my skin. I know my skin best and those words won't ever bring me down again. You can say all you want but I'm still going to put on make up whenever I feel like it. Suck it cause this is my life, I rule it.
To all of you who are suffering from acne, don't let such words brings you down. You shouldn't let acne rule you. You should be ruling your own life and don't let such people take your life away. Chin up, all of us are beautiful. Xoxo.

Time to get my check list ready and start buying whatever I need and definitely start packing. I am really good at procrastinating :/
To those who have went to Phuket, what are your essentials that you bring along with you?

Currently on a really tight budget. A little too tight....
Regarding about me taking up another course of study, I'm almost there. I'm just about to settle some issues and after that I'll just wait for a confirmation. If everything goes well, I'll be starting my first lesson on 24th September 2013 - this also means just hours after I'm back from Phuket. It sounds crazy but I don't want to waste any more time. I've pushed the offer once and I wouldn't want to do it again because I fear that my application would be pushed behind. So yup, I'm going back to school just hours after I'm back from my 6D5N getaway!
Work have been alright so far. Well of course there are glitches here and there but it's fine. I've learnt so many things after working for almost half a year now which gives me a glimpse of what it is like for me when I turn it into my full time career. Maybe there are reasons why I actually spent 3 years taking up a design related course but I end up not continuing it. Maybe I'll be doing something which combines both what I studied in Polytechnic and my soon-to-be course that I'll be taking. Well, who knows. Interesting...... but it's nerve-wrecking at the same time. I definitely have a love-hate relationship with growing up.

Life has been pretty mundane - wake up, bathe, prepare, work, home, bathe, eat, sleep. That is pretty much what I do on most days of every week. Work has been alright, still learning but doing fine.
This is also where I met my old friends - customers of where I work. It's really nice to bump into them. I've been working for almost half a year now and it's a pleasant sight to see people working under the same building exchanging smiles and greetings to one another (:
If things goes well I might be starting school soon. I'll see how things goes and whag the final decision be from the school's side. I miss schooling.
Now that I earn my own keep, I become more calculative in a way. What I meant is that, I tend to think a few times on spending on things. I think it's good that I finally understand when they say, "you wouldn't want to just spend away your money from you having to stand for long hours and other job scope."
I've already made plans to have about a week of getaway at Phuket this September with my soldier. Flight and hotel issues have already been confirmed. I can't wait! Totally need to be away from all the stressful and hectic life here.

I've decided to get this anti acne supplement - Acne Clear by Holistic Way. I haven't tried taking in oral medication/supplement for my acne.
I was getting some necessities from Watsons and saw this. Anyone of you have tried this? If yes, how is it? It'll be nice if those who have tried sharing with me their experience.
Below there will be some images of the product bottle. I've yet to open it up cause I'm planning to start having it tomorrow.
For those of you who are wondering how much is it retailing - SGD48 for 60 vegetarian capsules (This is base on how much I paid at Watsons)
