Everyone Is Superficial

Ugh sorry for the hiatus. Didn't mean to abandon you, my dear blog :( But lately my broadband has been up to some mischief and it keeps disconnecting... Which explains why I'm so dead on social media.

Not that I used to be the life of social media before LOL but at least I could update my instagram and tweets once in a while.

Even before posting this I had problems with my phone wire which prevented me from accessing my phone entirely and utterly on my laptop. 
It feels as though everything in my life is really against me lately.


I can't wait for May. Then I'll finally have stable Wifi... and probably even Unifi! :DDD Just the thought of people having wifi in the comfort of their own home sounds already like a luxury to me. 

During the time I've been away, I have done nothing much but spend time waiting for my computer to load pages. Lmao. 

Sad life is sad. Kk I should stop drowning in my self-pity and get back up again!

I've been surfing alot on how to enhance your eyes and etc with makeup and stuff. Cuz as you know I don't exactly have the largest pair of eyes on planet Earth --"
I feel like a dummy seriously when I see people being able to makeup so prettily who are younger than me. For the love of God I'm almost not a teenager anymore, but yet I know nothing about this wonderful world of eye shadows, blushes and contouring. 

All I know is how to apply eyeliner and mascara.
The end.

However, I think I will improve! *strikes determine look and pose*
And my first step was learning to finally use tape on eyes. Before this I have been using glue but it hasn't been that effective to bring out the double eyelid crease on top of my eye. And I never used tape before this because tapes were scary to me since I was so used to glue. Besides glue was much stickier.

But that was last time. Nowadays they even have eyelid tape which is double-sidedly sticky (Idk what it's actual name is) which is really effective in creating a deep crease. I tried that and I love it :D Made my crease bigger and deeper. But... it looked abit weird. So I only wore it when I was at home and during the night. 

And I must admit that applying makeup on eyes which has a higher and deeper crease looked so much nicer.
I don't mean to conform to society and support the unfair notion that people with a crease in their eyes look better than those without.. But I guess all our perception towards beauty have been contorted throughout the years we've been living to think this:

Big eyes - Beautiful
Small eyes - Ugly
High and sharp nose - Beautiful
Flat and round nose - Ugly
Tall - Beautiful
Short - Not ugly, but not that beautiful either

I hate that I'm becoming like everyone else thinking that this is true... I hate that I'm becoming as superficial as the people around me. I hate that I'm conforming and not putting an end to this. And I hate that we Asians have to meet the requirements of Westerners' features to be able to be labelled as beautiful. What I mean is, majority of Westerners naturally have a tall frame, high cheekbones, big eyes and a sharp nose. 

And if you realise, we Asians are all working our perception of beauty towards that ^

The thing is, it's not about being 'beautiful' enough to be loved by others anymore. It's about being 'beautiful' enough to be loved by yourself.

If you think about it, there are plenty of people who probably like you and love you as you are, and they include your parents and friends. However, you find that is not enough - Because you don't find yourself likeable or good looking enough to be loved, and you try to be better looking. And for what?

For you yourself to accept YOU. For you to look in the mirror and approve your beauty. 

I don't know about everyone else... But that's certainly how I've been feeling.

 It's that struggle of self-acceptance.


Finally, the third part of this post- PICTUREEESSS haha. Hope this looooooong post makes up for my absence here.

 Went to this restaurant called Thai Syok at Setia City because my parents said it was not bad.
As the name suggests, it serves Thai food.

 The menu.

 I've got to say that this was one of the most exotic sauce I have ever tasted!
It's spicy with a bit of sourness to it and the rest of it is just pretty damn unique which includes the fragrant taste of it.

 Tom Yam 

 Spot my mum's ultra fast hand haha.
She was too pro for the camera.
Anyway the tom yum was very tasty and it was slightly sweeter than what you'd expect.

 Prawns which I cant remember the name of this dish.

Great flavour blend and you can taste that it's actually made from real fish instead of those full-of-flour ones you find in the supermarket.

 Green curry pork.
Very tasty as well and also a little sweeter than you'd imagine it.
Nevertheless, it was still enjoyable and perhaps all that sweetness made it even more addictive.

 Pandan chicken!
Sorry bout the blur quality.
My phone is pretty weird after it's update so sometimes it can get a little bit tricky as it doesn't focus that well anymore :(

 Pumpkin custard for dessert.
Overall the food was not bad. Pricing abit pricey. Great place to dine with your family. Cuz then you can share the bill or let your dad pay LOL.

 I saw this interesting book at MPH.
So I decided to flip around the pages to check it out.

 This page got me and my friend cracking.
You can guess why hahahahaha

 Headed to Bangsar Village's Marmalade for a little tea.
This is the Salted Caramel.
Didn't really taste anything like salted caramel.
Except for the few chunks of salt decorated on top which I was caught by a nasty surprise.
It tasted more of Honeycomb cake + chocolate cake.

 Red Velvet with cream cheese topping.
The topping was great! Loved the cream cheese.
However, the cake was just typically red and sweet.
It doesn't have that slight cocoa-ish fragrant Red Velvet cakes are supposed to have.

Maybe I'm just picky.
Or I've really good taste.

Uni life has started again, and I decided to go full-on NERD mode this semester. So I decided to wear this annoying big specs to serve as a motivation and reminder for me to work harder and study more for this sem. Was very amused with all my friends comments on it. One said I looked like Goofy, another one was like OMG YOU LOOK LIKE A KOREAN, SO ADORABLE. I also duno whether that's a compliment la or a not so good compliment hahaha.
