Last night, I'm sure many of you probably were watching the Olympics. Honestly, when it comes to the Winter Olympics, I usually look forward (and ended up only watching) the women's figure skating portion. When I was little, I watched it because Michelle Kwan was in it. This time, I was really looking forward to seeing Kim Yuna. And there was no disappointment. She won! I was really excited. I'm no skating expert, nor do I follow every skating event there is...but I don't know, I just really liked her program :] I still would love to see Michelle Kwan skate though, it's been years (makes me sound so old :X)! Maybe they could skate together or in the same event at some point in the future? ^__^

Second exciting news!
Today was a snow day for NYC students. This might not sound really exciting for others who get snow days often. But in NYC, unless there is like a ridiculous amount of snow, it is snowing really hard, etc. school is always open. For as long as I can remember, we've only had a maximum of 1 snow day per school year. This year there were 2 (so far). I thought it was highly unlikely that Mayor Bloomberg would cancel school...but I guess the impossible can happen :]

I first heard about this great news at around 5:30 in the morning. Yes, you heard right..5:30. I was still sleeping when my friend sent me a text message telling me the news. It was hard to process in my half-asleep state. I think a lot of people would jump up for joy and forget about sleeping, but honestly, a part of me thought "really? I don't believe it!". I think I'm the only person that'll question a snow day :P


One not so happy news. Especially for 2pm fans.
I couldn't believe it when I read about it.
And a part of me still doesn't believe it.
But...Park Jaebeom
Leader of 2pm
Is not going to be a part of 2pm again :(
Apparently, he did something that is worse than the internet comments he made so many years ago
And they can't tell us why because of personal reasons(?)
But then they still continued to plan for his comeback until recently,
They decided to terminate their contract with him.
Unless I'm not reading their notice correctly...I'm really lost.
Now even the slight hope that I had is crushed.

So..how was your Friday? :]


Happy Lunar New Year!

Happy New Year!
Wish everybody good health and a prosperous year :] (It sounds much better in Chinese. It doesn't sound as smooth in English. lol)


Happy Valentine's Day!


One year mark for me since I got my braces off! ^__^ How exciting. Exactly one year! After around 3-4 years I finally was able to get it taken off last valentine's day.



I was tagged last month by Tammy to do a color tag. It was hard because I don't have many red objects in my room. So a couple of days ago when I finally had the time to, I searched high and low and dug through my things and found some red things to show you guys :] It's not very exciting though, please bare with me!

A heart nightlight that I got when I was maybe...8 or 9 from Ikea.
*Shh don't tell anyone but I'm afraid of the dark! :X

A heart pillow that I think I got from a street fair a couple of years ago.
I have too many stuffed animals and such to remember where I got each one from!

Minnie & Mickey that I got from Disney Land in California 2 years ago during spring break. The first time I went to Disney and the first time I was with my family in California :]

I cheated. The stars aren't red, they're pink. But the bottle I promise is red! I use to fold a lot of stars. I have accumulated too many to continue that hobby.

A very cute stuffed animal that my friend gave me for Christmas in middle school. It isn't red but it's collar and tag is! Who doesn't love to see cute stuffed animals?! :P

Now I tag anyone else to would like to do it :]
The color I choose is...purple!

A couple of months ago...
I won a giveaway hosted by Treasure Trove of Makeup.
I received the package a while ago, took pictures, and even uploaded them. But I have yet to blog about it. Shows how great of a blogger I am. >__<

Yummy chocolate :] The accessories are really cute but I'm not confident enough to wear such bold accessories. Hmm need to overcome it so I can wear them!

I love cards! Especially ones that have writing in it :]

Jemma Kid Blush Concentrate in 01 Pose
My first blush.

Sleek Bronze Baby Face & Body Highlighter
My first Highlighter/Bronze

GOSH Extreme Art Eye Liner L to R: 24, 20, 06 10 and GOSH Nail Lacquer in 546 Rainbow
My first eyeliners. Such pretty colors!

Jane Iredale chocolicks Caramel
Smells just like caramel (oblivious :P) very yummy. I want to eat it more than apply it on my lips!

L to R: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Plump Perfect Moisture Cream SPF15, Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules, Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Lift and Strengthening Eye Capsules
Does anyone know how to use the capsules? I'm not too sure if these are for my skin type since I'm only in my teens >__> Maybe I'll see if my aunt can put these to good use.

Loreal Paris Eyeshadow
I'm not sure what the name is because there's a barcode sticker right on top of the label.
My first eyeshadow.

I think this package was really great. I'm a total makeup newbie and all I have was base products like primers/bases, BB Cream, a couple of lip products. Now I have so many new things to try. Thank you for the great giveaway. I still can't believe I won. ^__^
