Peggy's birthday party

Attended Peggy's birthday party at Santa Grand Hotel!



At the lobby waiting for the rest before I went up alone because they are all so late! Haha.




Didn't know many people there, besides Jayne, Xiaoxue, Silver, Sabrina (not in picture) and Gabby (not in picture)


Photos with the birthday girl!




Was rushing off so couldn't stay for her birthday cake cutting. Sorry babe! Next year! ^_^

My tank dress is from TheFashionStreet!

Early Weekend

Was up really early on one of the weekend! That explains the horrible eye creases I have in this entry.



I love breakfast at Hans. I usually choose Sunny Side Up over Scrambled Eggs, but the Scrambled Eggs at Hans are really runny and the texture is just so good.



We had a impromptu decision to head over to Kbox for singing session! The K-Lunch was quite affordable and value for money in my opinion! Two bento rice sets (the food was so-so) and drinks.



The new touchscreen is great, but there's only one flaw to it. It's not portable. Unlike the remote, we cannot stay in our seats to choose songs. Had to go over to this "station" all the time just to pick songs. But it's more user-friendly than the usual remote kind I guess, many more functions too.


Random shots while waiting for someone to pick up the car...






My ripped top is from http://mamatiam.com! It comes in black too!

Blink blink



There are a lot of lousy eyelash glue around and sometimes we need to spend a lot and try out different brands just to find a good and suitable one. This is why recommendations are always good!

I usually buy mine from this ulu shop in Bugis Street. I no longer just buy it from anywhere. Sometimes BRAND-X works awesome when I buy from a random shop, but when I buy the same brand from another shop, it is diluted. Very confusing! Better to just stick to a supplier, like online websites.

I recently tried this eyelash fixer from Blink.sg, and I like it!


The brush attached to the cap makes it easy to apply the glue on the thin rim of a faux eyelash.


I also attempted some dramatic faux lashes available on their site.
This one below is 816. I quite like the effect against my eyeshadow color! What do you think?


This is how it looks on the box:


Then, I tried 464. Love how it perks up the eyes because of the long and slant edges! I think it is very suitable for people with droopy eyes.

The thing I love about Blink.sg? Their prompt replies and awesome attitude!
Check out the awesome reviews on their site too!

INSTAGRAM

Went out with Isaac and Benjamin a couple of days back and they took my phone to set up an Instagram account! Friends around me have been pestering me to sign up but I have never particularly took any interest to it. Moreover, the username "estherxie" has been taken and I did not want to re-use "iceangel". In the end they decided on "theiceangel", which is the same as my twitter account. Okay then! So, we took a photo on the spot and uploaded my first picture!



This photo looked better when it's small and on the phone! :(

After that I got kinda hooked and have posted up 3 more photos. Find me on instagram - theiceangel!



ZAPPYBOY

Received this box of Zappyboy everyday wipes at my doorstep about a week ago! So many, and in different colors too.

Random word update

Hey people!

Just a random update because I felt like typing haha.

It's such a wonder that I wrote the blog entry yesterday with a terrible headache yet less than 24 hours later I'm now here happily typing away again.

I'm so happy because last night my photographer sent me the photos taken for my new blogskin! I'm so excited to start working on it! Now, all I need is time. Aaah, free time is so rare nowadays. Sadly, my rare free time are mostly dominated by headaches and the strong need to rest from fatigue. But, I'm still working hard to continue updating my blog! I don't know why I just can't leave it stagnant for 3-4 days. I'd feel the itch to at least post something up!

So anyway, my boss just replaced the slow laggy computers in the office so now I'm using a new laptop! Very happy to be working on a faster machine. Now, just waiting for dad to upgrade the ram for my home computer. It's also functioning way too slow. Can you imagine, for the past few months or so, everyday I go to to work facing a slow laggy computer, and then go home to face a slow laggy computer again. Lots of angst everyday just because of the computer.

Back to the new blogskin, it will have a cleaner and neater look. I think I'd still stick to having a girly pink theme though. Except that maybe this time it will be more white and less pink. I'd also be compiling my favorite entries into a page so that you readers can easily access them!

Now I'm just thinking about how I should write the About Me page! I hate writing such descriptions because I just cannot find defining words to describe myself!

I'd also be clearing away the old advertisement banners on my current blog to declutter the space. To celebrate my new blogskin, I'm now offering promotional rates (Up to 50% off usual price!) for blogshop advertorials and banners! (OFFER IS FOR LIMITED PERIOD ONLY AND THERE WILL BE LIMITED AD SPACE) 

If you are blogshop owner interested in placing your banners on my new blogskin or having an advertorial on my blog, kindly email me at the-ice-angel@hotmail.com for the rates and more information! :)

Thank you!

Old School Delights



It's mystery makan once again! It was Nadia's turn to organize and she implemented the theme "Retro". First, a photo of my shoe that day.





Don't the shoes look a little like school girl shoes? So apt for Old School Delights!





So anyway, the lighting in the cafe was really yellowish and most of my photos were dark and yellow. Had a hard time editing! Halfway through I found the "auto color-correction" function and that made adjusting so much easier! This is the reason why the photos in this entry are all inconsistent in color.


The place was crowded, especially young people, many of whom were probably students!






We were given whiteboard and marker to write down our orders! Fun!


Lots of old toys like the sticky bubbles (what's the real name for that?) and marbles!


Are these from your generation? I briefly played some of the stuff before during childhood but they weren't really as prominent as Barbie, plastic toys or Playdoh, etc. I guess I was born during a time when it was already half-modern yet still not fully modern.

But! Fidelis is the same age as me and she has no idea what is the "flag eraser" game!!! We were all so shocked!



Some toys were available in an old toy box on each table. We tried the Five Stones while waiting for our food to arrive. The guys knew more about the rules of Five Stones than us girls!!

Old drink bottles.



Enid Blyton!!!! Books I read during my primary and secondary school days. Haha.


The tins at the bottom of this shelf has snacks that I slightly remember from my primary school days!

















The food offered at Old School Delights were indeed old school style indeed!








This Leon went to draw the cake on the order board instead of writing the name. Who knows what cake he drawing!!! Lol.


The waitress finally deciphered his cake drawing. Lol.


Me and my nasi lemak :D


I don't know about the others, but I was very surprised at the taste of my food. I usually have low expectations for such cafes that emphasize a lot on image, but my nasi lemak was sedap! I tried the laksa too and it's yummy!! ^_^



The guys immersed in eating their laksa~







I wore this earring to match my retro outfit.


I got myself a polkadot mint green blouse specially for this dinner. Went to Millys to do mint green nails to match!


With Jacelyn.


The boys! For guys it is more difficult to adhere to the retro theme. so they all wore Checkered/Stripes to 意思意思一下。


The girls! I think that me and Jacelyn belong to one type of retro while Nadia and Fidelis belong to another era of retroness. What do you all think?


Then Nadia started playing the old-school chopstick hand game with David and Fidelis started playing this "breaking" hand game with Leon! Do you know these games?









Had fun chatting! Good times had to end, so we went off to have after-dinner drinks elsewhere. Before that, we took photos before leaving.

Check out the old school phone!! Haha.



Full photo of my outfit here!


With Fidelis.



The girls! ^_^ I look forward to the next mystery makan!





Ending this entry with another photo of my outfit! :)



Wrote this entry with an annoying headache. Sorry if I sound incoherent :x Okay finally can go to sleep now. Good night.
