My sunscreen reviews

I used to be called Puteri Lilin back then during secondary school. I hated the sun. I still hate the sun. And I bloody know well that I'll continue hating the sun for as long as I live.
Hence for my obsession with sunscreens. Any recommendation on Holy Grail sunscreen, and I won't hesitate to try it out.
For the records, I have started of with Clinique sunblock spf25, it did pretty well on me, though it made my face oily and greasy like nobody's business, I didn't know there are drier sunblock on the market at that time, and I diligently finish using it. Next sunblock was Biotherm makeup base + sunblock which cost me rm139, and it broke me out and caused my face to be so oily, I seriously think they should reconsider recommending it as a makeup base. I then settled with Dermalogica tinted sunblock. I was using it until I went to UK, and my friend recommended me the Dermalogica solar defence booster. From then on, I have been on my search for THE perfect sunscreen, and have yet to come by any.

In my current stash:

Za True White day protector, Dermalogica solar defence booster, and Liz Earle mineral sun cream.

Here are the swatches:

I actually prefer the finishes of Za True White day protector, very matte, and dry, and it actually makes my complexion looks brighter and smooth. However on the downside, I broke out from it. Not that bad, but I didn't want to take any chances of worsening it, therefore I stopped using it after 10days. Now, I'm applying it on my hands instead.

I hate Dermalogica solar defence booster out of the 3. I don't know why. I look horrible with it on. My face looks so greasy and oily, and feels very yucky as well. Don't be fooled by the light texture, it gives a horrendous result at the end of the day. Good thing, it didn't break me out at all.

I am currently using my Liz Earle mineral sun cream.. it is slightly too thick for my liking, because the texture is creamy. However, since it does not break me out, and I don't look that bad with it on, thus, I have no choice but to use it. Though I brush on powder everyday before I step out of the house with this sunscreen, as it does make me look a tad oily too.

I hope my brief review here will help readers decide on their next sunscreen purchase.
I'm eyeing the shiseido face and body spf55 sunscree. haha...buying that when I get my first ever salary!

Money Money Money...

Lol, and few weeks ago, I was asking friends, why wasn't anyone calling me for interview...and now I am here, happy with job offers, and calls for interviews. Haha...but I've very much settled for THE firm, since I've gone through with the medical checkup. Yes. Medical checkup that required my blood to be taken. I know, it will sound like no big to deal to most people, especially Ning who willingly went to the hospital wanting to donate her blood. But
needle + Tan Wei Ern= NONO...
I was telling the lady injecting me, I SO DAMN REGRET APPLYING FOR THIS JOB!!! Rawrrrr.....
why must I go through this medical chekup?? ARGH!!!
She replied me, "Then you should work for this firm untill you're old, since you have gone through with the pain" =.='''

Besides blood test, I needed to go through urine test, eyesight, audio test, and x ray of my chest. Lol. Final outcome, the doctor said everything is fine, except that I am underweight.

I have found myself a decent place to stay, and now can start dreaming of all those wonderful skincares and makeup products I've been longing to buy. Haha...

Anyway, people, I have lots to update, but without pictures, I don't feel like typing much.
So, stay tune...

Lack of inspirations to do anything

I have so many things up my sleeves recently.

With a HTC Smart that has no wifi function, though I've been weighing the pros and cons of selling it off, finally I've decided to use it instead. And there I go, cursing it everytime I see a wifi spot.

I have my first ever celcom broadband bill that needs to be settled immediately, and I'm still procrastinating.

Looking at my first ever bought Coach handbag and wallet I carried all the way back from UK, I am debating whether I should put both up for sales. They are new and haven't been used yet. I'm sure they can fetch great prices.
With the money I get, I can at least invest in something more beneficial, exp: a better laptop, or a white sapphire ring as a talisman against bad luck. I simply can't find any reasonable excuse for me to keep the designer stuffs with me, as I am pretty contented with just carrying any bags regardless of it being high end brand or just cheapo stuff I order online.

Still thinking very hard, whether I should trade in my HTC Smart and top up to buy myself a hp with, at least a wifi function....hhmm....but then again, I'm planning to subscribe to Digi unlimited online access, so the wifi function would pretty much be redundant. However, as of now, I feel the lack of wifi function is killing me.
Any suggestions??

A trip of fun and madness

I was so excited when I received a phone call from xxx firm to attend an interview. I have been waiting for an interview call, and being jobless for months have affected my financial situation badly.

When my friend Ling got to know about it, she jumped onto the opportunity to head down KL with me. We left on 12th morning by flight. Reached LCCT an hour plus later, with a "private driver" awaiting us at the car park. no...he is a friend of Ling, called Vito. Lucky me, riding on my friend's good fortune, I had a free ride all the way down to KL.
Actually, besides free ride, I got free dim sum breakfast too! And free Hagan Daaz chocolate fondue. And free steamboat. And free next day's lunch. Best of all, free transport to the door step of the xxx firm. Damn. I should have bought a small gift for him as a token of appreciation, but too bad, my very "kering" pocket, and a long "to-buy-list" do not allow me to buy him anything in return. But I am sure, I'll work something out when I'm offered this job!!
(starhill in the process)

Vito brought us to Midvalley, first destination. I couldn't find the the Romp shorts that I have been eyeing on. So, next place, we proceeded to Sunway Pyramid. There, I managed to buy the Vinnci shoes I heart heart heart so much, with the perfect size of 4.5!!! Can you believe it??
Unfortunately, the Romp clothes shop there ran out of size "s" black colour shorts I wanted. So, Vito asked the salesperson to make phone calls to other Romp branches. Found only one left in Sungai Wang's branch. We asked for it to be reserved!! hah...and off we went....
Stopped at Times Square, and walked over to Sungai Wang.

I think this is like the craziest thing I've ever done. Covered 4 shopping malls in just one day. And not even the entire day. Just half the day. I've never done that before. Damn. And if I were to count Lot 10 in, that would be 5 shopping malls!!

And, here are the pictures of the day....

Penang trip

Ning wanted to go shopping badly irregardless of whether it was just a day's trip down to Penang, or few days trip down to KL.
So, when she knew another friend was driving down to Penang, she hopped onto the idea of taking a ride down too. So, we went to Gurney Plaze for our short shopping spree, and caused me to suffer from bad heartaches as I fell head over heels for a pair of awesome looking HEELS in Vincci. Unfortunately for my non-existence cash inflow, Ning told me to reconsider the idea of purchasing the heels, or maybe at least postpone the idea till I get myself a job.
I went home with only one purchase of the day, a bottle of Shiseido- Aqua label cleansing oil.
Here are some pictures of the day....

May all ends well.

I just bathed, and upon realising there was no body shampoo nor soap, guess how I improvised whatever that was in the toilet?? I grabbed my sister's very much neglected and abandoned facial cleanser, poured some liquid out on my palm, and happily had it slapped all over my body.

Bestfriend has a new aim to achieve, and that's to feel less irritated by certain people, or rather one particular person.
I , on the other hand have a new aim to reach out too, and that's to start having control over myself.
Firstly,I need to stop being a control freak. Though I very much know that boyfie has the least problem with me checking his emails, and constantly shooting random questions on his whereabouts, and what he is doing, cause he thinks that is a form of showing concern. Hah!!
But still, i acknowledge it as a very FLAWED part of me, and I am steadfast in lessening my possessive behaviour if not, getting rid of it.
Boyfie can be as understanding as possible, letting me direct how he should go about with his daily activities, but I don't think living my entire life trying to take control of his life as well as juggle it between mine is the ideal relationship I want to go on pursuing.
Now, the only thing I want to control, is, myself.
Well, keep the blog updated on my progress, but I am proud to say I've been a very nice girlfriend, giving lots of space to my boyfie these days, and in return, he does send me on/off very sweet online messages just to assure me I'm constantly being thought off. ( on his own will )

Now, I'm having a headache. An interview in a week time, I am prepared for the worst, but pray for the best. Not that I'm very much interested in joining this firm, but it is always better than having nothing to do, and watching my unused Celcom broadband sitting on my table screaming out to me that I'll need to settle the bill soon!!
I think I'm better off going to attempt some IQ questions now to makesure my very rusty mind is still in perfectly functioning condition.

Control freak.

"It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized."

Quote of the day....

"I can't stop eating. I eat because I'm unhappy, and I'm unhappy because I eat. It's a vicious cycle."

Current obsessions..

*a pic of me eating in pizza hut*

I don't think I need to go over and over in my blog that my past, current and future obsessions will always be my quest for the best make ups and skincare. I'm a vain pot. Who isn't?

However, truth be told, I'm actually taking this wonderful opportunity that my bestfriend, Ning, is back, to learn more bout how to ensure a working relationship.
I am no noob in relationship. Neither am I an expert in one.
The only thing I jolly well know is that, trust must be present in every relationship. Respect, and followed by, good communication.
Recently, I don't know what is going on. Whether God is blessing me, and guiding me through a smooth journey. Or was it all just pure coincidence??
Since boyfie got home, we have yet to get into any big fights, and even my "merajuk-ing" time wouldn't last more than 15minutes.
I'm a VERY, extremely sensitive girl. Every little thing, I'm able to create a havoc out of it.
But nowadays, whenever I think boyfie has been neglecting me for quite some time, and when I was just about to QQ (china msn) him, his message will reach me first, asking me, what am I doing.
When he is out with friend, and I feel he has not contacted me for some time, as I pick the phone up preparing to make a fuss, his message will reach me first, telling me he will be back soon, and that he'll look for me over QQ.
I feel weird. It is like God is helping me to avoid any unnecessary quarrels and fights. Giving me some peace. Lessen my doubts.
I dare not feel happy or overjoyed with the current situation, as I know too overly type of emotions will just lead to major disappointment when things suddenly just fall flat again.
But I just want to take this opportunity to thank God, for at least letting me have some uneventful but easy going life and relationship, and to have my bestfriend, Ning, here to enlighten me on how a relationship should be managed, how trust should be embedded in the mindset, and appreciate my bf as he is now.
For the part on my relationship, I'm contented, and thankful.
For the part on my job search, I'm hopeful, and praying.

My biggest obsession with life now, is very much to keep learning. Not merely on academic stuff, but more on how to look at life, and improve myself.
