Life as a Waitress

I have never worked for so hard like I ever did before.

I am not poor nor am I super rich. But I am in general feeling contented with what I have.

Of course I did imagine what I could have done more and some lists of things that I hoped to achieve in a certain time.

I have been helping around a restaurant for about 2 weeks. The shop is officially opened on 20th September 2015, which is like the 5th day of the shop operating.

Guess what? Day 1 was just smooth coz there were 2 ppl preparing water, 1 cashier, around 2 ppl taking orders and another 2 at the kitchen.

The madness started on Day 2. Only 4 ppl operating the whole place. I take all orders and getting payment when the clients call. While most of the time two other person from the back would come help me with water and serving of rice, food and etc.

Day 4 & 5 was better coz there was extra 2-3 ppl helping around.

God.

Now only I realized sleeping for long hours and being able to eat 5 meals a week (especially eating maggie) is a luxury.

Never have I realized eating maggie to be a luxury...but... lol.

Also, being a waitress taking order and settle payment, I also have to check the account at the end of the day. Thus, lesser hours of sleep and I don't eat much the whole day till I get home. Talking about going to the toilet. It is 0. Not a chance will you be seeing me going to the toilet unless it involves washing my hands and also to check on my hair.

Arrrrghhh

I quit

I quit

I quit

This job just sucks the life out of me.
No fun. No me-time. No time to blog. No time to dress up and etc.

Not gonna continue the list as it goes on and on.

Anyone else feel the same like i do as a waitress in an understaffed place?
:/


[Sorry for ranting but hey, I have learnt a lot (good and bad) and all that makes me a better and stronger person. Thank god that I am out of it, for now. May all of us look back at the end of the day and count the little blessings in life. You may never know if those ridiculous moments and etc may bring laughter and smile to your face when you recall / talk about it! ^^ ]

Review: Rich Natural Lash Extensions at Pink Passion

Disclaimer: This review is not a sponsored review. Everything is paid by myself and all comments are honest. Beware of the vain selfies too!! (most of them are not edited while some of them had filters of beauty effect. I do apologize if any of my selfies scared you)    :)


Hello beautiful! How are you all doing?
I was quite busy with work thus am less active in blogging.
I do miss blogging, but yeah, will try to be more active in it for this coming month and so on. ^^
Was sooo excited to share with you this news!
(After 5 days later)
I finally had the chance to try out my first ever eyelash extension at Pink Passion Signature Salon.

"You cannot miss a color like that!" - just like what Ms. Leona wrote in her blog. This was what I kept in my mind when searching for the place blindly and only trusting my GPS.
One question I ask myself before deciding to get this extension is, "Why extend one when you can actually change different kind of eyelashes (or not at all) according to your mood / event?" My answer is, "I am lazy but I wanna achieve that natural no-make-up make up look."

Personally I have never tried wearing fake eyelashes myself. I did wear them though, with the help of others for wedding occasions or school occasions.
I do not really like the feeling of eyelashes that are about to fall off.
Felt that once and I just wanna hide my head in a hole.
After that, I never want to wear them.
However, I have this not-so-guilty pleasure- I buy fake eyelashes (5 pairs) once in a blue moon and then keep them under my drawer. They just looked so pretty. So I had to.

Thank god to the creator of eyelash extensions and its durable eyelash glue, now I can have beautiful fluttery lashes and caption my pic like this: "I woke up LIKE THIS!" :D


Before I start, I would like to thank Leona for her blog posts whereby her reader gets to use the voucher WITHOUT printing it!

I would also like to thank Tammy mamasan for recommending me to try my first eyelash extension at Pink Passion. ^^

Here I am sitting at the reception place...so pink. Just like its name.

Just chilling and feeling nervous at the same time.

Luckily the staff who attended me was friendly.

The conversation went on as follows:

Q: "Have you ever tried eyelash extensions?"
A: "No. First time."

Q: "Can I see your side view?"
*turn to the side with glasses on*

Q: "Then I cannot make a longer set of lashes for you as it will touch your glasses."
A: "Okay."

Q: "There is two choice for you since you do not make up that often (natural looking lashes). One is like a fan type (longer in centre ie. 10mm and shorter at both ends ie. 8mm) and another is like cat eye (longer at ends only).
A: "Fan type then since more natural, horr."

*lie down*

*tape on eyelid, stick eyelashes one by one*

Q: "You actually have long lashes."
A: "But it is straight.." 
>.<"

....
...
....
...

Tadaaaaa... (gonna spam you with my pics of vain selfies!)

I feel like my lashes have just turned over a new leaf. Lol. I know I am mean to say this to my lashes but...umm...oh well, no choice. It is a fact and look at me! I feel beautiful instantly (sorry for being so vain, but every girl has the right to being vain! Don't stop her!) without the need of make up, oh, and also a little cheat of "beauty effect" in my camera. Lol.

Even with me wearing the glasses, you can see the obvious thicker and longer lashes screaming for attention.! (this effect is more obvious from the up-close view)
Left vs. Right. Though she commented it was originally long, still, the difference is VERY obvious.

Some angle may not be that obvious in length but the thickness makes it seem like I wore eyeliner... <3

Lemme end this post with my most preferred selfie of the day,
What do you think? Pretty right? If you would like to be effortlessly pretty , save that voucher below and quote my name! This is my bare face selfie with "beauty effect" coz of my super severe dark eye circle.
As for the touch up, I was reminded to redeem it for free WITHIN ONE WEEK after my extension was done (if you forgot and wanted to do touch up after that one week, rugi-lah you, coz' it won't be free anymore). Do Not Forget!!

Oh, here is the voucher, just screen capture or flash it & quote my name to get 65% off your FIRST eye lash extension done at Pink Passion. ^^

Progress of the lashes
(& vain selfies!)

day 2 (17102015)

day 3 (18102015)
This happened.
X.X
Actually horr, I think it is my fault coz I do somehow recall a slight pain when I was sleeping dead during my semi-deep sleep.

And this is how I look (front chunk of one of the eye is missing)
OMG. Quickly made an appointment, luckily there are free slot at 4pm.
My eyes were also slightly irritated.

Feeling more refreshed after the touch up.

On 19th October I attended a wedding dinner (just in time, phew!),
looks natural horr?though my skin is imperfect, I think I look alright.

On 21st this is how my lashes look...
Actually, the front chunk of one of the eyes was missing again. So I kinda pulled my other side of the extension that was also already loose. I know my action of pulling isn't advisable but, to look pretty, I just had to. Honestly, my inner ends were very prone to be loose Idk why. Do you guys experience this? I already started using my Bioderma cleansing water coz they say CANNOT CANNOT use OIL based product.
That is all for now. Will update again when it falls and when I remove them.

Oh, for the removal of eyelashes, you actually need to pay RM50 or RM60.
After my calculation, it is actually worthy!! WHY?
(don't forget about all the costs of eyeliner and mascaras!!!)
For the extension done with the voucher, it costs RM88 (np is RM258!!).
In Leona's post, she did mention that "BUY 1 Free 1" refers to the touch up. And that touch ups normally cost up to RM160.
So, it is a DEAL, right?

Think no more and reserve a slot now girls!!
Save the voucher and quote my name to experience your first ever eyelash extension (Rich Natural Lash Extensions) done at Pink Passion, BEFORE NOVEMBER 30th!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you still need to consider, let me tell you what I think about these lash extensions,

Pro:
No more rubbing of eyes
Thus, less wrinkle formation
More awake eyes 
Bigger looking eyes
Sexy looking eyes (depends on the kind of eyelashes applied!)
Time to get ready is reduced by A Lot!
Also save cost on mascaras & eyeliners!!

Cons:
It may be weird for first 2 days (but you'll get used to it)
Cannot rub eyes anymore (my love-hate relationship)
Cannot use my cream removers that I got from my HK haul (nvm, can use after I remove 'em lashes)
It's temporary (3-4 weeks max!, so gotta become less appealing again...)

Annecy Innocent White Brightening Bubble Mask

Hello Lovelies, it has been quite some time and here I am back with another skincare review.

Any of you heard of Annecy before?
I got it from my HK trip last year.
Big sis tried and tested the sample which amazes us so we quickly got it without a second thought (and also because I have never own a bubble mask before, lol).

This is the packaging. Simple and neat. The cap is slightly dirty due to the nature of the nozzle.

Brand: Mannings (known as Guardian in Malaysia)
Line: Annecy
Item: Brightening bubble mask
Content: 50ml
Claims: 500x hydration, whitening in 14 days
Cost: around HKD49.90 or HKD59.90

"Pale and Clear Skin All In One"

*Soft foamy texture, whitens skin and clears blackheads
*Exfoliates dead skin cells, brightens and nourishes dull and uneven skin tones
*Minimizes pores and clears skin

See the foam? It actually increases over time and decreases after that.

Directions for use:
Dispense desired amount onto palms.
Apply on cleansed face and gently massage until bubbles are formed.
After 10 - 15 minutes, rinse well with water or cleanser.
Due to product nature, it is normal that small amount of bubbles will form at the nozzle after use.

Key Ingredients:
*Double Hyaluronic Acid creates a moisturising barrier and penetrates deep into skin, hydrating your skin from inside out
*Arbutin reduces melanin formation and helps lighten spots and whiten skin after 14 consecutive days
*Black tea enzyme brighten skin, leaving it with a rosy, healthy inner glow
*Luxurious natural black pearl extract from Tahiti enhances skin rejuvenation, turning back the clock
(FREE from GMO products or mineral oil)

Just being vain and pose while trying this bubble mask for the first time

First Experience:
So COOL! It bubbles up and I feel like I turned into a white ELMO.
After rinsing it off it was, O M G. Skin was feeling tight and dry.
Honestly, I was feeling scared to try the second time.
So sad that this product doesn't suit my skin.
The claim of being hydrating is not at all seen in my skin. Needless to say, claims like whitening and removal of blackheads are not seen upon first use.

Rating:
2/5

Repurchase?
Sad to say, NO, my skin just do not work with the product

Recommendation:
Probably oily skin user as I currently have a combination skin of normal to dry skin with slightly oily T zone (I already experienced tightness and dryness, so if you have a similar skin like mine, I would not recommend you to try it!!)
