Instead of blogging about my new nails extensions, this time I vlogged it! It's so much easier than taking pictures!

Many people have been emailing me to ask about the procedures of gel extensions, but i find it so difficult to explain in words so this time I video-ed it down so that you see everything for yourself!

So paisei!! I feel so fake cos some of the lines were scripted, and I don't like talking to the camera scripted. I prefer doing natural videos where I'm actually doing something active and words come out straight from the mind. For example, those family videos that dad took.

Thanks to Raine who helped to video and also kept encouraging me by saying "natural!!" when i know she's lying cos my sister at the side is giggling and showing me the "so fake sia" face -_-

I uploaded this video at vlogCRUSH! It is supposed to be a Vlog, but instead of doing it the usual way, I vlogged about my topic right on the spot, so that you have visuals to see!

vlogCRUSH is Singapore’s first online platform dedicated to video blogging (vlogging). This free-to-use interactive site allows vloggers to share and express their opinions and gain talent recognition opportunities.

Here are some vloggers who found fame through vlogging!

Michelle Phan, the most subscribed beauty vlogger. I love her makeup tutorial videos! They are so professionally taken. To read about how successful she is, click here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelle_Phan

Kevjumba, think of vlogs and you will think of him. Just search youtube for his name and you can see various videos he made, just with him going on and on about his views. No need for pretty faces, no need for fancy background. Just him and his words. His videos are quite interesting, got me hooked.

Natalie Tran, I only know about her recently, and it seems like she's famous too! Search for her name as well to find out more!

But you know what? Just from 3 of the famous vloggers, none are Singaporeans. Guess singaporeans are still more interested in blogging?

Spearheaded by a group of young entrepreneurs, vlogCRUSH is set to breed a new vlogging culture in Singapore.

Although I express myself better through writing than video-ing, I quite like the idea of vlogging. I feel that it's somehow more "real", as compared to blogging. I feel that the way we write doesn't necessarily represent our character. People who are cute/fierce with words, might not be the same way in real life.

Vlogging is also more natural, because you do not have a draft. You are speaking straight from your head. You cannot edit after speaking, unlike blogging where you can change a few words.

Vlogcrush is a space set aside just for vlogs, so if you want to watch vlogs, just click on vlogcrush.com! The same if you want to be watched by people who wants to watch vlogs, upload your videos at vlogcrush!
