"Peer-pressured" into Instagram XD




First and foremost must post the badge right?!! Self-promote!! But there's only 1 post for now! LOL

Well... it is not really from peers that I felt the "pressure" to sign up for an account with Instagram, coz I am rather happy, VERY HAPPY with Pick! It's kinda similar to Instagram but with better features and accessibility. For all that I am aware, (I am still noob at Instagraming) I can't post my pictures (umm... you know? after I have it photo-shopped?) and I am kinda... disappointed. Then, initially when I tried to use the app.. it seems that the options for editing the pics are quite little... or maybe coz I am using an android phone? Not sure.. But if it wasn't for the fact that I really wanted to:

1. Follow / Stalk my favourite beauty gurus
2. Take part in contests/giveaways
3. For the joy of interacting with potential readers of my blog/YT channel viewers

I would not have joined.

But then again, I had... so I shall work on getting more posts on it.

I will most likely repost my Pick posts into Instagram as Pick provides great filters and stamps and bla bla bla.

It also allows me to post via web browser login / Android app / Apple Store app


and I bet at this point you have noticed how my Pick Page's background looks sooooooo pretty right?

See!!! You can customise how you want it to appear on web, outside of browser, it can still look good! In face, they provide you with template background to choose from. If you already have a LINE account or Naver account, or you could even choose to create an account via Facebook or twitter login. All posts could be crossed post to Facebook, Twitter, Weibo, Sinablog.

So if you visit me at http://pick.naver.jp/fsrain, this is what you'll see on the landing page:


pick,instagram alternative,photo editing,naver,line,photo app


and this is how my profile looks like:

pick,Instagram,FSRain,FS.Rain,Blogger,Beauty,Makeup Enthusiast

I don't care what you think of Instagram la, I really like how Pick is and I think you really should try it too!!!

hahaha.. somehow this post ended up not talking much about my instagram account... anyways, to find out more, just check me out on Instagram loh.

Till the next time... (gonna be very soon)

See ya around~

Getting Busy Online~

As always, Time flies and almost unsurprisingly, I am entering a new decade of my Life... the year that I will get a chance to change / update my identity card as current one was issued in the year 1996.... I am among the last batch of citizens who get to receive their ID cards when they hit 12 years old. YES, do you maths and you can find out my age. XD

With this new year, I am looking forward to some sort of stability in my relationship and ultimately, embarking on a journey in my career and interests. 

That was why I  have been rather busy recently dealing with all these:

  • Setting up a Google+ Page & Site that supports my professional development in HR.L&D
  • Updating my blogs on Tech gadgets + Makeup, filming of videos for YouTube channel for gadgets and beauty
  • Scheduling an event and tapping onto Google Forms, to recruit volunteers to assist me in my personal interests (i.e. Makeup!!)
  • Job search and refining CV and LinkedIn profile
  • Subscription to the Adult Education Network under IAL
  • Continuing my further studies - already undergoing my masters degree programme

I am rather pleased with what I have accomplished during the past 3 months and I really hope that 2014 shall be a fruitful year in terms of career, learning, and pursue of interests.

If you are missing me already, come on! Find me on my social media platforms and interact with me there! I am sure it is not that difficult as I have left some footprints here that should lead you on~

Despite the downs that took place in 2013 and the years before, I am very grateful for what I have learned, experience and knowledge gained, the mistakes that were made, the frustrations that I have to go through... all these made me the person that I am. 

As I always reminded myself.. let me repeat it again:

"Happiness is a Choice that can be made"

"知足常樂 笑口常開"

Stay positive and always look out for the something that brightens your day.

I love rainy days for the peaceful ambiance and the cooling weather, yet I always prefer the Shinning Sun that brightens up world infront of me.

Let's work hard and work smart as we paved our life during this limited time. 

Let's enjoy the simple pleasures in life as we tackle our way through the obstacles laid ahead.

May peace and happiness be within reach.

May smiles and laughter accompany us.

I can continue rambling these nonsensical nothings.. but I think my lids are getting heavy..

We shall talk again~

Hey everyone!


I've not posted any entries in a while.. Most likely gonna back-post my articles to eliminate and "blanks" on the calendar. XP


For now I just wish to share with you that CherryCulture is having 25% off for L.A. Colors products! Grab yours now!


Im so so so tempted to join this shopping spree but am torned between saving up for up-coming trip and this exciting sales event... How~ what should I do?


Hmm.. Tell you what I have in mind. If you are located in Singapore and wanna get something during this sale but not enough items to cover the shipment fees, drop me a mail now!


I will consolidate all requests and advise if there are enough orders to do a spree where shipping cost per item falls within USD1.50 per item. How's that?


Alternatively, just drop me a note and I will keep you in touch when we have enough orders to do that Spree!


As to how much i'll charge for coordinating this and how we can arrange for deposits and payment, we can discuss this if there's enough interested parties.


Ok, thats all for now.

Mini Reviews Series Coming Your Way~~

Weee Hee~~!!!

I've started out a quest to post as many mini reviews of my cosmetics, skincare, makeup removers, whatever and ever so on so forth.. blah blah blah lala la.... to and fro work!! At the very least, on my way to work while I'm yet too exhausted by the end of the working day.

If you've been following my Health & Beauty Blog at Pixnet, you'd have noticed that it's slowly getting posted up!!

Also, I am trying to catch up on the photos to be uploaded!

The problem with uploading of photos is not the internet connection.. its the pre-upload that's tiring, time-consuming, and sometimes, confusing me too~

Coz I am lazy to rename my files after they are uploaded, so the best way to ensure after uploading into my blog I only have very minimal things to do, I will sort them out in my Thumbdrive folders and have all of the renamed!

This way, the file name tells me what photo it is and easier for me to organize them into the folders of my online album too!

Not to forget that these photos are also used for my reviews! So it is very important that I checked through them to get rid of blurred and out of focus photos, rename it, sort it out before and after uploading into my blog site.

Anyway, I'm just so happy this week. Completed 2 major steps for 2 major projects and I finally feel that I've made significant progress >> That's at work. Outside of work, I've been enjoying the fun and stressless kinda mini review blogging using the mobile app of my pixnet account. Mini reviews by my standards, save me lots of time on research, data consolidation, carefully planned review shots and swatches and applications shots. If necessary and possibily done, a video clip will be shot to further contribute to the content of a Review Blog post.

So such mini reviews are really convenient and hassle-free for me.  I'm dropping snippets of my reviews in points while I'm transiting to/from work. Then when I reach home, I'll just insert the uploaded products photos into the post and open it up for viewing!

I hope that my reviews are helpful, please do make your presence known if you find it beneficial, and let me know if there're ways for me to improve on my blog posts.

As for this blog, it is really really meant for me to post up random, unrestricted topics that I felt like doing.. like now! Supposedly to be a post to announce my mini review series, yet I strayed off-topic in between the paragraphs of this post.. hope that you're able to stay with me and not get all confused..

FYI - I seems to have quite regular readers who came straight to this URL.. how do I know? the blog provides some simple stats, and it shows that out of 100% of viewers/visits, 40% is direct request.

Very interesting thing for me to find out.. but it also makes me felt even more curious of the audience of my blog here at BlogSpirit.

Shout out to me ok?! 

Especially if you are one of those that pops in directly and not those who found me via links, search engines.


OK, enough of blabber for now.. wana continue with some video editing and hopefully, can post up a video showing how I put on my makeup soon!

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!! )
