The Convertible Dress

Not sure exactly when it started but its been a common sight on Facebook to see the convertible dress as bridesmaid dresses! 


I had the honour to wear the dress for my friend of 14 years!


High school friends! Known them for about half my life!

The bride's cousin


It was her idea to make the floral headdress


Two of my dear friends =)


More pictures of me!


I spent hours coming up with an idea to tie the convertible dress differently from everyone else. Hehehe


Sexy backs


The bride told us to buy the nude bra to go with the dress


The evening wedding reception. A candid shot

More with school mates


The bf and i with the wedding couple.


Group shot of all BBGS girls who attended


Just wished the shot was of better quality

It was a good day, really stressful and tiring as a bridesmaid but all good!

Fake Eyelashes, Social Media and Opportunities

I had semi permanent fake eyelashes glued onto my real ones in November last year because i had two spring races to attend



I wanted to enhance my eyes and take pretty photos with the girls


I didn't realise i'd end up wearing sunglasses on both occasions! 

The fake eyelashes were a little too long for me to put on my glasses since i'm Asian and i have a rather flat nose. This is detrimental to me because that meant i had to wear contact lens all the time, even to work.

My work requires me to sit in front of the computer all day and i was really suffering with my fake eyelashes and contact lens by the end of my first week. I turned to my optician friend on Facebook for some advice about caring for my eyes. 

After saying thank you, i tried to return the favour by saying, "If you need any accounting advice, just ask me!"

Pure coincidence, he mentioned he was opening his own business in February and might need help with administration and accounting!! 

This is a friend i met at 16, in extra tuition classes after school. After high school, everyone went on their own separate ways. A friend i haven't seen in about 10years!

The invitation for the grand opening of their shop was sent out on Facebook. I accepted and made the effort to attend. It was a good catch up with CL and i met his business partner HC.

They made me their accountant =) Yay! 

Been busy over April with their work. They are nice people to hang out with. Its just a funny story, one that i am proud of.

Yoga Poses in Angkor Wat

Some stretches after sunrise! 


Cool travelling with someone as fun as my dear friend here!


Great that the bf likes her company too =) 
Though he got stares from market sellers etc who thought he had 2 girlfriends! He said they'd offer him a 'woman' and then they'd look at us two and then immediately back off! LOL

Me with my tree pose =)

And PL with her bridge pose. So pretty!

We bought the same pants the night before we visited the Angkor Wat =) Red for me, blue for her!

Bitter Confessions

When i was 23 i loved attending my senior colleague's or manager's weddings.

At that age, it's fun seeing OLDER people tie the knot. Now i'm almost 28 it sucks seeing everyone get hitched.

"When is you turn?", people annoyingly ask me. My heart fills with bitter volcanic fury while i fake a smile and force myself to be polite to these rude people who have no idea what pain they have inflicted upon me...

If i had a dick i'd have more say but as a chick my hands are tied until the other half pops the question. Statistics show that if a woman proposes or forces the man to propose, the marriage is 50% more likely to fail. Like Britney Spears.

Another thing that did hurt was that my childhood best friend did not ask me to be her bridesmaid. 
Given we are not as close as we once were.
Given i have already been bridesmaid once and will be bridesmaid again in March.
Given i did THINK that i didnt want to be her bridesmaid.
But still, when she named her bridesmaids on Facebook and i wasnt one of them, it does somehow hit me somewhere.

Not to tears. No tears shed. I didnt really want to do the whole bridesmaid thing a third time in the span of 1 year. But still, damned if u do, damned if you dont.

Either way I just cant win.
