I have moved!

Dear Readers,

I have moved!

It will be my last post here and I will be redirecting this blog to my new address once December starts and continue for a year. So do take note of my new address🙂


After so much time spent working behind-the-scenes on setting up my website, figuring out and working on migrating to a self-host platform and working on my theme coding alone, it is quite a relief that I managed to wham through the obstacles and get it started. Thank God for my programming skills obtained from my polytechnic diploma!

It was quite a huge decision for me to host my own website all by myself. I was really uncertain because I have no experience and migrating all my media and content over seems daunting. But I have never like paying other people to do it for me as I wish to do it myself anyway. I have tried once but failed because my coding skills wasn’t good back then and I had to stop from there. After months of reading up, now I am glad that I decided to try again because all the limitations have now been lifted! All my contents is now under my control, and I own it. And the best part is allowing to do custom coding without having being restricted.

I wrote this post because I am unable to migrate my readers who subscribed here via wordpress. That is under WordPress control. I can only migrate my readers who subscribe using their email. So this is a short announcement to sign up again using your email if you still wish to keep updated of my posts.

For now, my website is still new and so far I have tested out and working okay. Do let me know if there is any glitch!

Meanwhile, do pop by at my new website now and subscribe! Otherwise, see you again at my new website in December once the redirecting start🙂


See you at my new website!

Dress golden like the sun

I must have three dresses; one as golden as the sun, one as silver as the moon, and one as shining as the stars.

New beginning as Husband and Wife

Blissfully wed! ❤

29 October 2016 - Wedding Over!

29 October 2016 – Wedding Over!

Apologies for taking such a long break from here! I have been so busy moving my things, settling all the wedding preparations for the past month. And on 29 October 2016, everything just happen in a blink of an eye and we are wedded!

Till now, we still cannot believe we are husband and wife. The joy we experience when waiting for each other after work to go home together, the contentment when we eat meals together with family. And we are eagerly waiting for the photos to be ready so that we can share some of our favorite moments that happened on our wedding day 🙂

Sharing one of our conversations before signing off here:

He: ” 老婆, can I buy PS4?”
Me:” Can. On the condition that you get a second controller. I want to play together. ”

Few hours later, he bought PS4 with 2 controllers but games that only allow one player.

Win Liao Lor.

When I pointed out why he did not get the multiple player games, he replied with a smirk that he has fulfilled my condition. Tsk!


Bellae Illustrations: Marchesa Bridal Spring 2017 Inspiration

I am so loving Marchesa Bridal Spring Fashion collection this year. The dresses are so fairy-like with floral detailing as 3-D appliqués on gowns with dipping décolletage or lace embroidery. How can I not love them?

And my favorite dress out of this collection:

Trying out Boomerang video for the first time while adding glitters to the dress:

Wedding Journey: We are officially Mr and Mrs!

I just registered my marriage legally with my husband last week at the Registry of Marriage (ROM)! ❤



I ❤ my dress!

Bought this dress from Theory of Seven, which first came too big on me. Thanks to my talented mother-in-law who worked as a dressmaker before, she managed to alter my dress to fit my size and height. I love how the ombre-effect of the dress make the photos look so beautiful! And the husband who dressed up as well 😉

“With this ring, I marry you.”

Loving this flower bouquet that my husband got for me, after showing him my preferences of flowers and arrangement. ❤

For all brides and grooms who want to save money, go to your neighborhood florist and ask them to rearrange the flowers for you as it is definitely cheaper than you buy from malls or elsewhere (depending on the flowers you choose). After comparing prices and talking to the florist, we got this bouquet for SGD $60, with a nicely tied ribbon at the end. It was comparably cheaper than those florists that I look around online. I also source for my neighborhood florist when I had to help my sister-in-law get her bridal album table cotton flower bouquet and it was a very nice experience with negotiable price too!

How about makeup?

Deciding to save money, I decided to do my own makeup and I think I am quite successful despite being a beginner!

My ROM Makeup Look

My ROM Makeup Look

I can tell you that this photo is not edited. I just love how my foundation ( give my skin such a dewy finish and it looks fabulous in photos without any white cast. Before that, I put the primer and  moisture ampoule base to allow the face to be work on smoothly. The mascara I used gave me such nice lashes without the need of putting fake lashes. I also add in a little bit of glittered eyeshadow to add some glamour, together with liquid eyeliner to enlarge my small, mono eyes. That’s one problem of having mono eyelids, it is so tough to make your eyes look big. I use orange blusher to give a nice healthy glow on my cheeks. Thankfully, an extremely nice and friendly makeup artist who did my makeup for an event, taught me the dos and don’ts for my makeup so I was able to pull this off nicely.

For girls who always have chapped and dry lips like me, do put lip sleeping mask the night before so that you will get a moist and plump looking lips the next morning! Another tip from me is to put the lip sleeping mask first before putting your lipstick. I can assure you that it will look great without the fear of having the color sinks into the lines of your lips.

After that, put loose powder to set the whole make up and you are good to go! This whole makeup look took me only 30 minutes which is not bad for a novice! Probably because I am a portrait pencil artist, maybe that’s why I can draw my face like that.  *A pat on my back*

Makeup I used for this look:

  • Real Skin Moisture Ampoule Base from Witch’s Pouch
  • Skin Equalizer Primer from Make Up For Ever
  • Ultra HD Make Up For Ever Foundation
  • Perfect Cover Concealer from Witch’s Pouch
  • Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer from Too Faced
  • Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner from Stila
  • Shadow for Eyes (Royal Golden Beam – SD1) from Witch’s Pouch
  • Aritaum Mono Eyes (I think #96?)
  • Eye Brow Liner (Brown) from Silky Girl
  • Lash Perm Curl Fix from Etude House
  • Fresh Fruit Lip & Cheek Trio (Orange) from Skinfood
  • Lip Mask from Laneige
  • Lipstick from Elizabeth Arden
  • Loose powder from Laura Mercier

You can find most of these stuffs from either Sephora or Althea Korea Singapore. You can see that I am quite a fan of Witch’s Pouch! The rest like Etude House, Skinfood and Aritaum brands, I shopped them at Korea during my pre-wedding shoot vacation! I also did for my mother’s makeup that day and she loved her look too! *Double pats*


And finally, my favorite photo of the day!

I am so loving this picture taken by my brother-in-law! We decided that to show our joy and excitement by posing fun shot here instead of serious and boring pose with the backdrop outside ROM.

Why take such serious shot when it is a happy event? 😉
