Finally!!!!!!  Its BACCCCKKKKK in ION!

Am so glad to see one of my favourite make up brands having its own standalone store in Singapore to compete with the rest! This brand did a disappearing act for the last few years, I wonder why. I totally miss its gold sleek make-up packaging especially what they did for the Touche Blush! The unique design with its shimmery pink blush can just make a grown-up girl fill with so much excitement!

Anyway, overheard in the store spoken by a 40s aunty to the sales attendent “Where did you guys go? I can’t find this lipstick anywhere and finally bought one in Korea..”  pfftttt……   talk about passion.  Dear madam, you’re fortunate to travel to get your make-up fix,  how about me who has not been travelling for the last few years and just have to look forlornly at the expired touche blush casing?

Anyway, welcome back YSL.Hope you stay for a longer period this time round.

From 5 to 9 (Miki Aihara)

Song of the Day – “My Way” by Paul Anka while I’m writing this.

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

Am reading the latest series from Miki Aihara -5-ji kara 9-ji made! I actually bought the manga without knowing what it is, at this low period where i don’t know what shoujo should i be reading next.

She was always writing all these harem themes that after a while it got predictable (e.g. So Bad! Hot Gimmick, Honey Hunt ), and yeah, blame me for still reading them even though I kind of know how the ending will be. Teacher’s Pet was juicy in a way but that is another story.

‘From 5 to 9’ is a refreshing change, at least I don’t see any harem romance coming up in a way yet.  It is more josei, written to target young working girls who are faced with the dilemma of getting married at the ‘xxx’ date. 3 girls form the main leads in this series. I can totally see this being a drama series since it’s quite ‘real’.

My favourite couple in this series is actually Momoe and Arthur. Maybe I can relate to this particular hobby of hers. You must read to find out what exactly it is.  Anyway, I like the above cover, set in the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter party backdrop, and just peeve that we don’t get to see such covers in the tankobon. Credits to the chinese team who did this.

Flash of Lighting!

THIS IS WHAT I NEED!

A good plot!

Kawaii Characters!

Humour! Action! Romance!

What have I been reading for the last few years? I’ve actually missed out such an awesome series!!! This is definetely a good change from the usual shonen of Naruto and Bleach – the forever series as I reckon i’ll be in my mid 40s when it end.

Totally love the strong plotline, which is rare for shonen which forever seems to be either focusing on different skills, becoming stronger, beating up the bad guys usual plot etc. Now I can see why it won the Shonen Series award. Only peeve, i wished Kekkaishi is a longer series.

 

A Bed Of Roses

ImageIt’s funny. After such a long absense from here, one even forgotten how and where to log in to the wordpress. That’s what babies do to you. Life’s busy..and there’s another addition to the family who just joined this Jun!

Sometimes I wonder what is life? Is it about dressing up, meeting that special someone, settling down and having a family? Is that what our lives are about? I kind of missed those days where we hang out after work for dinner and drinks, or those late sleep ins with weekend brunches with best girl boy friends.
