Happy Valentines' Day!!

Wow~ It's the day of the year where retailers sends out the hype and increase the prices for simple things which we can also indulge any other day.. but then for today, it is so special that everything will be priced and viewed differently!

When I was single, I used to enjoy the hype and the romance in the air while wondering what's it gonna be like when I have my better-half..

Hmm.. ever since last year's V-day, I think it does makes a different when you have a special someone who celebrates this day with you.

For me, it was very random, unplanned, surprised.. coz we simply went to our neighbourhood park to have a packed dinner (from some food retailers of coz), and enjoy a sip of drinks or two..

When he sent me home, he was just playing with the guitar and initially it was just some random pieces and his made-up lyrics (coz he's bad at remembering lyrics?? not sure..).. I was just enjoying the moment, admiring him while he strummed, and thinking that he is talented with musical instrument (yea, I know many plays a guitar, but I prefer to think that my guy is pretty talented XD).

Before I realised, his humming & made-up lyrics to some pieces suddenly became a song for me.. a song he sang about me, for me!! At the moment when it hit on me, I was so overwhlemed with emotions, the warmth was astonishing!! Apart from the surge of emotions, I was also wondering if I shoot start filming him!! hahaha.. but my senses got better of me to simply enjoy this exclusive performance and allow our hearts to rejoice~ It moved me so much that before I knew it.. tears well-up and flowed as he sang to me his love and his feelings.. Definitely Unforgettable~ My first V-day... Thank you dear~!!

What about yours?

Heh heh.. I'm wondering what's up-coming for this year's but I am also trying hard not to anticipate too much as whatever that I have now on a day to day basis.. I believe is more than enough to last a life time. XD (I know I know.. MUSHY TO THE MAX!! )

Google~ The dream Co. to be in!

I came upon this website which organized a conference in UK for employees' benefit. Being a HR professional, I am very interested in the content of this conference, hence I went into the listing where the presenters have allowed their slides to be downloaded.

Here, I came upon these set of slides by

Google, Olivia J Husemeyer,

It is quite an interesting presentation which also inspires me on my plans for myself and what I can do for my organization in the future (hopefully new future).

Check it out!!

Inspired~

[Makeup Pictorial] CNY-inspired look in Glittery Red

Happy Chinese New Year~!!!
Xin Nian Kuai Le!!
Gong Xi Fa Cai Hao Yun Lai~

Yea, so it is a makeup pictorial (Tutorial) which I've posted on my Health & Beauty Blog!

With great influence by the festive season, I decided to give RED colour a try!
I've never used Red for my eye shadow colour before as it is quite strong and might also make my eyes even more puffy-looking.

Somehow the look turned out well and I have captured all the steps (as detailed as possible) and post it up as a pictorial guide for this look. Check it out here!

Below are some shots taken for this look:
