Make Up and Moisturizers

Wednesday, 29 September, 2010

I’m not fond of make up and have no plans of taking it seriously. Even if it is said to be good in enhancing beauty and highlighting your face, I don’t think I’ll achieve that effect if I’ll be the one to apply it on me. Haha. My so-called kikay kit does not contain the usual girl stuff. I’m contented with mascara, face powder and lip gloss.

Fashion Girl

Keep smiling!

I admire some makeup models though. They look like lovely dolls with pretty eyes and pouty lips! What’s their skin regimen to keep its youthful glow even off-cam and without make up? I wonder if their face moisturizers have something to do with it.

My beauty comes from my confidence, not from my make up!

Day 28: A Year After…

Wednesday, 29 September, 2010

Before:

Liz 2009

Enlightened...

Can’t find any 2009 solo pic, most are in groups or with bf! Hehe. Plus, there are only few stored images of me from last year compared to this year. Hmmm. Seems that there are less significant events by then… Anyway, does the above image look familiar? Of course, that was taken last October 2009… sleepy during the reception. Related photos can be found here: Day 20: Happy Life, Ever After!

After:

Liz 2010

Getting better...

Nailo’s shot @ Trend Micro, taken during one of our team meetings last August.

No major major changes! But if it’s 3 years ago, I have a lot to share… just like what I’ve posted before: Better or Worse?

Liz just became stronger and better person. Errr…sometimes meaner! And now a bully?! Haha. That’s not true. Some people misinterpret my remarks and loudness. Argh!

•Day 28- A picture of you last year and now, how have you changed since then?

Day 27: Life Is A Challenge!

Wednesday, 29 September, 2010

I love something that stimulates my heart and mind! This 30-Day challenge brings out the witty me! Hehe. My creative juices burst into blog entries worth-reading. I enjoy writing random stuff and imagining things, great ideas won’t just stop coming!

Think Positive

There are so many reasons to be inspired!

And yeah, I know myself even more in such a way that the daily challenges help me recall how I used to be and foresee how I’ll be in the near future! It’s nice to look back at the silly things I’ve done and I am so proud to have well-defined goals in life! I am so inspired! So eager to finish this challenge!

Day 25: From A Star Scout To A Certified Girl Scout

Monday, 27 September, 2010

I can be usually spotted with a big bag on me. Yup, even during my elementary up to college days. I went to a public school so we did not have lockers yet by then and we had to carry all of our books every day. Maybe that’s why I did not grow much. Lol. Petite’s lovely! And during college, I used to carry different notebooks instead of a single binder. Plus, I want plenty room for my things. First aid kit took place the supposed to be space for kikay kit then. Hmmm. I’m the Doraemon of my times, a certified girl scout!

Day 24: Dearest Mom And Dad

Sunday, 26 September, 2010

I’m confused whether or not this is the right time to confess… I’ve been keeping a lot of things from my parents. If I am to write them a letter… it will be on a piece of paper and in the native language. And then I’ll give it to them personally. For now, let me post what my heart tells me…

Happy Family_Mom_Dad

The joys of parents are secret, and so are their griefs and fears.

Mom,
I thank you so much for all the love and care you’ve showered us since we’re born until now. Thanks for preparing my meal three times a day. Thanks for doing the laundry instead of me doing it. Thanks for fixing our bed early in the morning. Thanks for buying us our school needs. Thank you for being the best mother in every sense of the word.

I just hope you can be stronger. I love the faith I see in you. Be more positive, always!

Dad,
Thanks for being my first teacher. Even if other people always say that I inherited my intelligence from your mom, I believe that it’s your genes that made me this smart. Thanks for working hard for my tuition fees and other school projects. Thanks for trusting me that much and always praying for my success. I am lucky you’re not that strict. Even if my love for you and mom are equal, I still prefer the way you raise and discipline us. Thanks for all the support when I made the toughest decision in my life.

To both of you, thank you for being proud of me… I am sorry that I can’t be with you all the time. I’ll be always here for you. Again, my never-ending thank you. Love you so much.

*sniff*
I’m missing them real bad… 🙁
Good thing I’ll be visiting my hometown this weekend with my sister. Time to be with them again!

Day 23: Love It Whipped!

Sunday, 26 September, 2010

I’m about to say coffee, but that’s too general. Besides, I can always get hold of a cup of coffee at home or here at the office. Hmmm. I’m actually craving for Java Chip Frappe!

Give in to your creamy temptation!

But wait, there’s more! I can’t remember when’s the last time I’ve enjoyed Jollibee’s Rocky Road Brownie Sundae so I’m including it on my must-taste list for this week! 🙂

Day 22: Sooo Unique!

Friday, 24 September, 2010

There’s only one brilliant and cheerful Lizzie in the world, that’s me. 🙂 I’ve already shared 40 things about me and for sure that’s enough to give you an idea of who I am. If you can’t recall any, check these out:

25 Random Things About Me!
15 Things to Love and Hate About Me

Yup, I’m good in bed MATH. That’s forty! Hehe… And if you’re craving for more, everything about this 30-Day Challenge should suffice!

Liz-anime-girl

So, what's so unique about me?

I’m a kid at heart but think like a grown up. Blame it to my ever imaginative and analytic mind. The image above is sooooo me! Hihi!  Especially those kawaii stuff around. The one sitting on “my” head is Mugu mugu, the two other tiny creatures are Snowhite and Kyubi. *wink*

+1 random fact about me: I want everything fair and square. As what I always say: BE JUST OR BE DEAD. I always fight for my own ideals and do what is right. If I can be a super hero or a princess of justice, I’ll be! 🙂
