AFA 12


*really love my eyes here, the makeup and all (:

This year's Anime Festival Asia (AFA) is much bigger in size as compared to the previous years.
I've never really walked around the event hall since I had been working for the event.
So this year, me and my friends had planned to meet up to take a look for the first time ! ^^
Another reason is because it's been quite awhile since we met up with each other as we are all busy with our own lives, different schedules, etc.

I did not bring my camera to the event so not much pictures taken.

Anyway, first we went to take a look at this year's Maid and Butler Cafe. 
Most of them are from the newer batch except for Jeff (haha the most senior). 
We then chit chatted for awhile to wait for the princess Andrea to reach and began walking around the hall.

While walking, we saw many cute stuff, like seriously A LOT! 
And we decided to stop by one shop selling kitty, bunny and bears hat. I don't know how to describe it but look at the picture below to get a better idea (:

Yutaki and Hellven bought it. I think it's really cheap because it's selling at $30 for the long bunny hat (left) and free short bunny hat (right).
Hahahaha so I kind of borrowed Yutaki's bunny hat to camwhore because I'm really a sucker when it comes to furry stuff. Just like how I really like my Mafia.

In case you guys missed him, here's a picture of my glutton Mafia hamster.
He's currently almost 23 months old, almost 2 years old!!
Still fat, lazy, eating and sleeping all the way like a pig, but he's super adorable that I can't stop looking at him Hahahahahahaha.

Okay so back to topic.
Being a vain person like me, and Andrea, we started camwhoring pictures with the cute hat.
Ever since I started putting braces, I've been lazy to take nice pictures so pardon my unglam or stupid or fugly face. Pardon my ugly crooked braced teeth too. LOL

Pictures below. (:

Actually the hall was really big and we did not walk around much because the main point is to take a look at how the cafe was doing and to visit some friends.
While being there, many people took photos with Yutaki. He's really popular with the girls I guessed, since quite a few of them actually asked him if they could take a photo with him. Haha.

Around evening time, we head over to town to have our dinner and basically just slacked and walked around the area and stayed up late at a cafe chatting about random stuff like army (all the boys are in army now except Alex) which I have no idea what are they really talking about. Haha

I then left around night time to catch the last train while some of them went to club.
Before I end this post, here's some photos posted by my friends! Credits below.

Hello everyone!

There have been many ups and down this month even though it's only the start.
Had quite a few problems like arguments and stuff with people.

Anyway, I think I have been really lazy in blogging because I used to think that pictures can make up all my blog post so I'll just post photo captions with a few sentence and tadaa~ the post is done!
Right now, I think I might be going to try to write more because it can be quite boring to see my face all the time which I could just post it all on instagram instead.
Wahahaha anyway another reason is because I wasn't really that vain to keep taking pictures recently, therefore there is a lack of pictures in my blog. I might also start to post more comments especially for things I might not like or comments made by other which might be good or bad, etc. so as to spice things up in my blog. Else it would be boring since my life is mostly all about work now. ):

Many people are curious if I photoshop my pictures because sometimes my nose may look sharp or my face look so V and small, etc. Actually it is all about the angles you are shooting from. This is really important because it is how you shoot to make yourself look better by using angles that compliments your looks.
Different people have different angles that suits them due to different factors such as face shape and features, therefore you got to figure out yourself which is better for you. So for mine, my face look sharper on the left so I like to take photos more on my left side of the face. For ladies, you can also use your hair to cover up parts which you might not like such as your side cheek bones if they are very protruding, etc. (:

Back to the topic about Camera360.
In case you guy don't know what it is, it is an iPhone app which allows you to edit your pictures using many different effects. It sounds normal like what the other photo editing apps does but I think this is one of the better one because it comes with a lot of different editing effects.

What's good about this app is that you can take pictures directly using the app with the effect you choose or you could choose to import it from your Camera roll. Bad thing is that you need to export the pictures out if you want to post it on Facebook, instagram, etc.

Before I post pictures of myself, I gonna show you how does it work!
So first you either take a picture, or you import from your camera roll and it will proceed to this page below

I gonna use Mafia as an example. Hahahahaha isn't he cute? So FAT :X

So you click effects and this is the list of it you can choose.

For me I choose the light color!

I choose sweet because I want it to look cute and sweet like people would give the puppy eyes after looking at the photo. LOL Hahahaha
Anyway I don't want it to be too pinkish so I choose around 12% but sometimes I might add more, sometimes less depends on what you like.

After that you just click "Save" and then click "Send" > "Export to Camera Roll and choose the definition you want.
Do not choose original because it is the photo you took before you edit the pictures.

So here's a comparison
Better right? (:

Oh and this effect is only suitable to be taken during the day with natural sunlight because I think it look sucky during the dark.

So here's some pictures I took!
FYI: Pictures are taken directly using Camera360, only edited with Light Color effect.
No Photoshop or any other tools used.

Braces me (:

Mr. Ming always like to disturb me when I'm taking pictures so I had no choice but to do stupid faces.

Look at my double chin! LOL

Another double chin! Omg!!!

In case you girls are interested in what types of lenses I'm wearing.
I'm wearing Super Barbie lenses, I have quite a few different series for the lenses but mostly I wear is brown!

Bye! ^^

Review: Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening Lotion


As mention above, I'm gonna do another review on Hada Labo's product.
This time round, you girls can get to try it out yourself too! Yay *\(^.^)/*
Read below for more information!

Hada Labo has launched it NEW Arbutin Whitening Lotion with Nano Formula.

Arbutin Whitening Lotion contains three ingredients Arbutin, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid that helps to hydrate and brighten your skin.
Arbutin is a natural plant extract from bearberry plant that helps to enhance your skin fairness and helps to fight dark spots
This is especially good for people who wants to hair fairer skin!

Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening Lotion does not contain unnecessary additives, colorant, alcohol, flagrances and mineral oils.

What I feel about this product is that this lotion is very watery.
When applied to the skin, I must really tap it well to ensure that all the lotion is absorbed onto my skin.
It would take quite a while for the lotion to be fully absorbed if not it will be VERY sticky.
I usually apply it before bed time, so it isn't really an issue.

I am not sure if it really helps for whitening but it does moisturize my skin (:
Definitely worth the try!

Oh and if you do not want to waste the money to buy it and realize that it isn't suitable for your skin (which I doubt it will), do grab a sample to try out for free below!

Bye~! ^^
