Up Close And Personal With World Renowned Investor Jim Rogers!!!





Gosh...guess what? leechie was at Suntec Bookfest today n i pop by Jim Rogers's talk...i have been wanting to meet him for a loooooooooooong time...but i keep missing out on his talks...i rem once i went to his talk at suntec rather late n the entire place was v.packed with ppl...it was so crowded that i could only hear his voice but couldn't see him at all =.=" btw, i have a fren working at cnbc whom i have been bugging to bring leechie into the studio to catch Jim Rogers in action...but i havent been able to meet him...until today!

Leechie went up the stage to get his autograph...n guess what? he kissed my hand n posed for pics with me n passed me his namecard! gosh...leechie feels so honored n flattered!!! =D n he's really friendly! =)

Someone sent me this msg ->
"Hey there.. are you a model? "
but i thought tt was a pickup line tt ppl use donkey years ago? ;p
Well, i was amused with the folloing reponses from fb frenz ->
"the famous pickup line was "Excuse me...are you a model?"
"Tono..confirm u r a catwalk model..i saw u before in hong kong"
"I would ask the Question too by virtue of your Profile"

Interesting comment by Harn:
"Conventional wisdom may be that its wrong to be friends with married men, but could it be that maybe you are really the right person for him after all, and he only met you now? Comments please."



Just received a lovely Urban Decay eyeshadow palette as Xmas pressie today...blur leechie only realized tt the box was made of wood when i got home....v.unique n pretty! leechie likes it v.muchie =) (from Mandy n Aly recent US trip)...the 2 Jill Stuart eye jellies were from Shuqin's recent Taiwan trip...she also gave me the pretty Jill Stuart paper bag...n the lancome lippie n mascara were from Harn =)

Facehunter at A Curious Teepee ~ Private Soft Launch Party


The Facehunter, Yvan Rodic, himself!


Attended the private soft launch opening of "A Curious Teepee" at *Scape...pretty nice food n interesting cocktails there...it was really crowded with lotsa arty ppl o.O they have a v.interesting concept...whereby one can find all kinds of arty stuff there...all stuff whimsical...as well as a bar/cafe to chill =)

Leechie tried practically all the signature cocktails there...had abt 10 cocktails, including some exotic ones such as cucumber martini, strawberry martini, A Curious Teepee Concoction, expresso martini, sea salt magarita, elderflower cocktail o.O" leechie fav was the strawberry martini...sweet n nice =) took abit of the expresso martini from Harn's glass...found it abit too strong for my liking (it kept me up the entire nite -.-") but quite a number of ppl there told me tt they like it tt way...so i guess it's supposed to b strong o.O" the sea salt margarita was really interesting...the bar mgr told me tt the foam on the magarita will stay on n will not subside...true enough, the foam stayed there even after i finished my drink! but the drink was quite salty...think it tasted quite strongly of tequila o.O A Curious Teepee concoction is sweet with passion fruit...nice...but there seems to be too muchie crushed ice in it o.O" cucumber martini is quite refreshing n slightly bitter...think the elderflower cocktail had vodka n grapefruit juice in it o.O

Leechie likes the desserts served...had several servings of the apple thingy with vanilla ice-cream...although it tasted abit like creme brulee ;p they also served us the delicious duck meat in small waffle cones...which Harn likes alot =)


I also tried this red wine popsicle ice-cream bar...quite cool...my first time trying out an alcoholic ice-cream on a stick...lol ;p Harn chose the chocolate coconut one which she likes v.muchie o.O

Guess what? i actually met the media guy who sold me jimmy choo mirror at zouk flea mkt couple of years ago...lol...see tt leechie uses atas mirrors ya? ;p harn was giving me advice...telling me to date atas guys n not cheapo guys o.O btw, leechie is allergic to cheapo guys! -.-" btw, the lovely Tracy Phillips was at our table...she always looks so elegant n classy =) there were a few ppl from mediacorp there as well...




Btw, i was greeted by this pink parrot at the door when i arrived...n i couldnt resist not disturbing this parrot before i left...so i went to stroke the parrot...this caught it unaware...my leechie mum was asking if this parrot made any noise while i did tt...well, i guess it's a well-trained parrot with pretty good manners...it didnt make any noise at all...lol ;p




Check out the cool crowd at A Curious Teepee B-)

Well, A Curious Teepee is a cool place to hang out n chill with ur frenz =) well, i think i would need to fork out >$200 last nite for all the drinks n food if i were not invited to this event ;p Harn msg me the v.next morning tt we drank waaaay too muchie last nite...i actually thot i was doing okie...cos i even went shopping last nite after she left n my chat with mediacorp frenz...bot pretty dresses ;p leechie is in a holiday mood...it's the party time of the year ya ;p i ♥ my leechie life ;p but no more expresso martini for a leechie...not even a sip...waaay too strong for a leechie!!! x.X" it kept me up the entire nite even though i only tried abit! -.-"

"Have you taken time out to review 2010, what was great for you, what wasn’t, what you would change, what you would retain? Are you pleased with where you are at right now? What’s happening within you & what’s showing up in your life? Are you ready for more? Are you ready to take a quantum leap, to do & experience what...ever it takes in order to make real changes in certain or all areas of your life?" ~ Helen Lee
I'm really scared...honestly...harn said yest tt her new year resolution is to get married...n she has had the same new year resolution for the past 3 years...gosh o.O"

Learnt somthg new today:
"GPS- Go Places Slowly......."
lol ;p

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Something to share with everyone here ---> Someone sent me extremely rude emails...let a barking madman barks all he wants...guess he's facing some personal crisis in his professional & personal life...let's exercise our greatest patience & sympathy...no wanna bring myself down to his level...he's juz a mere acquaintance, wont b surprised if nobody wanna befriend such a pathetic soul...since there r slashing cases here...it wont do our safety any harm to let ppl with questionable frame of mind win some silly arguments ya? ;p which is y i always say...letting others win silly arguments aint a sign of weakness...but it certainly tells u something abt these ppl...a person's behavior can tell u lotsa abt tt person's upbringing n class (or rather the lack of it) ;p

Can u believe it? leechie kenna bullied yet again today :'( there r juz some totally unreasonable ppl not in the right frame of mind who goes around picking on ppl n spreading untruthful rumors :'( he created a scene n then he continued nagging on n on n spreading untruthful rumors n badmouthing me at my fren's table until she got so pissed off n told him to shut up otherwise she's going to call for security! tt shut him up...but he went over to other tables n continued his nonsense!!! :'(
wanna thank the 2 kind souls who came to my side to try to help me...anyway, anyone with eyes could tell what kind of person he is judging by his action n behavior! :'( n this is not the first time tt he is doing this!!! -.-" my leechie mum was asking me y am i so affected when most of us already know his character n how he likes to spread untruthful rumors n badmouth me in front of ppl, esp when it's not the first time tt he's doing this!!! -.-" i believe there is such a thing called retribution...n with his character, i wouldn't be surprised if no lady in this world would fancy him even if all the men r dead!!! N if i ever see him spreading untruthful rumors abt me again, i will consider to seek legal advice!!! -.-"

Here r responses from my fb frenz --->
"in our life we cant choose ppl around us even at work, family or friends also have tis kind of ppl.juz keep in mind only useless people will talk bad abt us cause they r jealous abt us.so dont bother abt tis kind of useless ppl, they are not capable ...tat y only know how to use mouth. i treat tis kind of ppl as disabled person so never take in heart on wat they said yet pity them. …"

" I agree leechie, I have seen them got the retribution they deserve. But important not to react and stay cool or they will drive you nuts"

To quote our Foreign Minister, Mr. George Yeo ---> "If you want to hear everything said behind your back and then be offended by it, you will be an unhappy person."

Leechie is annoyed with how some ppl who keep trying to sell me all kinds of crapz n keep pushing their ideas into my leechie head...leechie aint a 3 yr old kid =.="
*leechie squeals in a most bimbotic tone "my leechie brain has limited space n it definitely doesnt have any space to absorb whatever crappy ideas tt u r trying to sell to me"! =.="

Juz saw somthg amusing ;p
"Abbreviation of ABCDEFG & GFEDCBA

What is ABCDEFG?
...
A Boy Can Do Everything For a Girl!

But what is GFEDCBA? (The Opposite)

Girl Forgets Everything Done and Catches new Boy Again!

LOLZ!"

Saw this on Mike's fb status...this is sooooooo sweet
‎"Love is when my gf accidentally delete all my important files,crashing my laptop,having to spend nxt few wks trying to get it all repaired,& at the same time crashing my car too,having to send it for repair&spending nxt few wks squeezing wif the public taking public transport & yet...w/o yelling at her but juz giving ...her a kiss on her forehead when she sincerely apologized&assuming her tt everything will be ok"

Peter's touching real life story...
i like the last line..."sharing life together, living on faith and love."
‎"i was relating to my wife the other day that how similar we are, to Carl & Ellie. we built a family together, saving for rainy days, my car also spoiled & knee was injured... taking out precious savings, and all that. the wedding ring i bought for her, is a little too small for her now, hence i wanted to buy a nice Tiffany ring for her, because I want her to know how much she means to me. next year, i actually wanted to have a month-long trip to Europe, because she never went there b4. i know she will love it. but heck we can't do that, because we are shifting house next year and we will be broke again... but isn't that part of growing together? sharing life together, living on faith and love."

"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love & affection." ~ Buddha

I totally emphasize with my fren's predicament...but still amused by his posting ->

"And the best part is... the Head of Admin laughed at me when I showed him the booklet with the counter staff's handwriting and told him that the counter staff even confirmed for me that the program does have honours before I enrolled for the course.

His reply was "You should have checked with the Dean..."

In my mind I was like "wtf? U mean even when Apple prints in their tech specs and the salesman confirms for me, I must still check with steve jobs whether ipad really got wireless lan before buying?""

"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for circumstances they want and if they can't find them, make them."
my leechie mum was saying yest tt if it's meant to b yours, it'll be yours...if it's not meant to be...then perhaps tt's ur fate...but y shld i resign to fate? =.=" i'm the scriptwriter of my life!!!

Update:

Some irritating guy juz called n asked a string of irritating questions...n i'm being reminded of what my broker said last sat...some ppl dont look at themselves in the mirror first before thinking of their expectations...he was questioning me this n tt abt my event participants n asking to meet ppl from certain professions n kept asking this n tt...but has it ever crossed his mind if those ppl wanna meet him? obviously not!!! -.-"

Attended the soft launch opening of "a curious teepee"...pretty nice food n interesting cocktails there...had abt 10cocktails o.O" met the media guy who sold me jimmy choo mirror at zouk flea mkt couple of years ago...lol...see tt leechie uses atas mirrors ya? ;p harn was giving me advice...telling me to date atas guys n not cheapo guys! =.=" btw, leechie is allergic to cheapo guys! -.-"

Head Scalp Spa at Creme The Hair Spa



Was sent a voucher for a complimentary head scalp spa at Creme The Hair Spa worth $118 for my leechie bday =) this was my first hair spa session...the session was really v.relaxing...i sat on the massage chair....n dozed off...lol...ampoule for hair loss was applied to my scalp n the therapist massaged my scalp...she was really v.attentive...even helped me put on the bedroom slippers (which was totally unexpected)...i had soothing blackcurrant tea there...thumbs up for the excellent service =) i noticed tt another Japanese lady was there during my session...i was rather surprised cos when given a choice, most Japanese would prefer to go to a Japanese salon rather than a non-Japanese one...so this should say something about the level of service there...found out tt a few local ladies mags did reviews for their services too o.O for those of u who r interested to visit them, they will be moving over to Central at Clarke Quay after Xmas...they have some special promos going on too =)

Brought my leechie mum to a skincare talk at Germanium on tues...n they did a complimentary "Gua Sha" session for my leechie mum...they did one side of her face first to show the contrast...well, it was pretty obvious tt the right side of her face where "Gua Sha" was done looks visibly lifted n fairer! well, my leechie mum was pretty happy =) apologies tt i cant post any pics of my leechie mum here cos she's rather publicity shy o.O"



Leechie was sent a box of Tsubaki Perfect Beauty Drink by AFC Lifestream...tried it n i like the fresh citrus taste...it's so refreshing and different from those overly-milky taste from some other brand of collagen which i took previously...n it's v.convenient too...there's no troublesome mixing of powder into water so no worries of insolubility...it contains micro-collagen peptides, bio-cell activator n hyaluronic acid...a highly-recommended collagen drink from leechie...saw tt Tsubaki Perfect Beauty Drink was also voted Women's Weekly #1 Best Skin Supplement Drink! btw, i also bot the AFC collagen tablets previously n i like that too =)

*** Gucci The Bamboo Bag Exhibition ***


This is leechie fave bag of this exhibition ;p


Look at the many parts tt a Gucci Bamboo bag is made of! was told tt each is made of more than 150 parts n tt more than 14 hours, excluding preparation time for the materials, is required to make each bag! o.O




This bag is made of wood o.O







Happened to pass by Gucci...not sure if i'm being recognized or what...but walked right into Gucci's The Bamboo Bag event at Paragon...the marketing mgr showed us around n introduced the various bags on exhibition...was served champagne with finger food...not tt i mind the champagne served...lol ;p thinking if my uncle-ish frenz were to see this, bet they will poke fun of a leechie n associate Gucci with leechie again =.=" but i gotta say tt Gucci didnt pay leechie any endorsement fees =.="

Update:

Spent abt $500 at Shiseido sales...n gotta thx my fren for braving the long queues to help me cp some lovely dior palettes from Dior private sales...shall post up some pics when i get the palettes =)

Was out the entire day...went HQ for seminar...then pop by Anteprima Sale n bought a gold bag n black organizer...then had red wine at Skin Inc Anniversary party...then went to company movie event...dozed off during the Rapunzel 3D movie...my 1st 3D movie...then went Yello Jello Anniversary party...walked so muchie today tt i'm dead dead tired manz! -.-" n again, i have frenz poking fun of leechie's supposedly "tai-tai" lifestyle =.=" was so tired tt it was already 2pm when i woke up the next day manz...damn tired manz...was supposed to attend seminar...but ended up shopping instead ;p bot so muchie stuff at Triumph Sales n at the Megaflea at expo...lol ;p

Leechie was waiting for transport by the roadside after fengshui class yest...when this car stopped at the opposite side n its owner got out n crossed over to my side of the road n asked if i was waiting for cab...he left after i replied "no"...
nice samaritans r not tt common here...but i wouldnt dare to take a ride from a stranger...
new pickup line -> "r u waiting for cab?" lol ;p
when i first saw him walking over, i initially thot tt he's coming over to ask for directions...n i dont even know the place well...lol ;p i guess he's trying to b a good samaritan...but it's not really a common practice here to offer/accept rides from strangers o.O"

Something to share with everyone here ---> Someone sent me extremely rude emails...let a barking madman barks all he wants...guess he's facing some personal crisis in his professional & personal life...let's exercise our greatest patience & sympathy...no wanna bring myself down to his level...he's juz a mere acquaintance, wont b surprised if nobody wanna befriend such a pathetic soul...since there r slashing cases here...it wont do our safety any harm to let ppl with questionable frame of mind win some silly arguments ya? ;p which is y i always say...letting others win silly argument aint a sign of weakness...but it certainly tells u something abt these ppl...a person's behavior can tell u lotsa abt tt person's upbringing n class (or rather the lack of it) ;p

Can u believe it? leechie kenna bullied yet again today :'( there r juz some totally unreasonable ppl not in the right frame of mind who goes around picking on ppl n spreading untruthful rumors :'( he created a scene n then he continued nagging on n on n spreading untruthful rumors n badmouthing me at my fren's table until she got so pissed off n told him to shut up otherwise she's going to call for security! tt shut him up...but he went over to other tables n continued his nonsense!!! :'(
wanna thank the 2 kind souls who came to my side to try to help me...anyway, anyone with eyes could tell what kind of person he is judging by his action n behavior! :'( n this is not the first time tt he is doing this!!! -.-" my leechie mum was asking me y am i so affected when most of us already know his character n how he likes to spread untruthful rumors n badmouth me in front of ppl, esp when it's not the first time tt he's doing this!!! -.-" i believe there is such a thing called retribution...n with his character, i wouldn't be surprised if no lady in this world would fancy him even if all the men r dead!!! N if i ever see him spreading untruthful rumors abt me again, i will consider to seek legal advice!!! -.-"


Here's a response from my fb fren, Kelvin --->
"in our life we cant choose ppl around us even at work, family or friends also have tis kind of ppl.juz keep in mind only useless people will talk bad abt us cause they r jealous abt us.so dont bother abt tis kind of useless ppl, they are not capable ...tat y only know how to use mouth. i treat tis kind of ppl as disabled person so never take in heart on wat they said yet pity them. …"

To quote our Foreign Minister, Mr. George Yeo ---> "If you want to hear everything said behind your back and then be offended by it, you will be an unhappy person."

On a happier note, pop by Prestige sales n bot lotsa Paul&Joe spring/summer and fall 2010 range of cosmetics, including pressed powder n limited edition bronzing pressed powder n sahara lipstick n the cutie cat head lipstick n lotsa eyeshadows n nail polishes (all 2010 n 2009 stocks) ;p in terms of the products, this is the newest ranges tt i managed to get at prestige sales...so leechie is a happy kid...wanna thx the v.nice n helpful mgr there too =) i stayed only half an hour there n spent abt $200 =) feel tt it's much better value for money than the $100+ tt i spent at Kose sales o.O"

Btw, leechie went to see kim hyun joong at tampines mall just now...too crowded...didnt even manage to see him at all...could only hear his voice =(

Harn helped me to cp Chacott powder and Integrate eyeshadow back from Japan n her comments abt my recent shopping goes like this ---> "ha! Hope u are actively looking out for tai-tai positions then - coz seems like you're already busy building up experience in fulfilling the job requirements :p "
Going to collect stuff from another fren who juz returned from her taiwan trip...will try to take pics of all my recent loots n update again...so stay tuned ya =)

Gosh...prices at MIU MIU n PRADA have increased yet...esp for nappa leather range =(
bot a MIU MIU pink nappa cloquet clutch today at $574 (after 30% off)...ouchie...cos yest the original price they told me was $640...apparently, the staff forgot to update the new price to $820...i like it v.muchie but the price increase of almost 30% is abit crazy =.=" so the 30% off discount doesnt do much after the price increment -.-" my leechie mum was making noise tt i paid $574 for such a small wristlet when i could buy a BIG bag with this price =.=" also bot a GUCCI mobile phone strap at 30% off too o.O

Eyeing this cutie bag...lol ;p

Modelling for Wella Hair Coloring Workshop =)






Pls pardon the background cos i hid inside the washroom at Ion to take pics...lol ;p

This was the first time tt leechie has modelled for Wella hair coloring workshop =) had my leechie hair colored dark purplish red (wine color) after consultation n analysis were done by the Wella experts who flew in from Europe!

They have this really cool machine there manz...the experts placed a probe to scan n analyze various sections of my leechie hair...well, if u have seen leechie in person or my pics before...u would know tt my leechie hair color was really far from being homogeneous...the lower section of my leechie hair turned v.yellow since the last color job...the mid section looked brown (cos i did a roots retouch earlier in the year)...n my roots looked dark brown...the salons tt i went to previously tried to cover my leechie hair with a darker color to try to make my hair color look more uniform from the roots to the ends...but gosh, my hair color always turned out v.patchy...darker near the roots n much lighter nearer the ends =.=" the experts printed out a "recipe" from the machine on the prescribed method to color my leechie hair. the color tt was prescribed was a dark reddish brown o.O

The lady color technician who did my hair color worked as an instructor at a hairdressing school prior to joining Wella n she's been working here at Wella for almost 15 years ler...so she's v.experienced! i like her hair color...ash brown with copper shades...v.nicely done =) she followed the prescribed "recipe" to color my leechie hair...both her n the senior male staff who did the analysis thot tt i have permed hair...so they were v.surprised when i told them tt i have natural curls ;p

They trimmed strands of my leechie hair before n after coloring...the experts checked on my hair after coloring...n tried to match the color to the color samples on the color chart...my hair near the roots looks dark red...then the color on the lower section looks slightly different...the color nearer the ends looks purplish red...the conclusion tt they drew was tt using the machine n following the prescribed method is better than the usual conventional way of hair coloring =)

I was asked if i like my new hair color...so i answered candidly tt i haven't tried such a dark color before...so it's something v.new to me =) this is the first time tt i've tried such a dark n striking hair color...my leechie mum used to joke tt she could see me easily in the crowd cos of my light hair color...lol ;p this wine color looks v.rich n certainly makes my leechie hair look more healthy...n i'm v.happy tt my hair color looks uniform from the roots to the ends now! =) i dont need to put up with much darker roots n lighter hair ends anymore!yay ;p this wine color suits my skintone too...i'm already v.fair but it seems to make me look even fairer n accentuates my naturally rosy cheeks =) i received quite a few compliments on my new hair color...some frenz even said tt this hair color makes leechie look younger...which cant b a bad thing ya ;p

Btw, my fb frenz were debating n joking abt what color i shld color my hair prior to this workshop...some of the suggestions were yellow, orange, blue, red, purple, gold, black, reddish brown...n even rainbow n white!!! lol ;p btw, my fren colored her hair rainbow colors previously when she brought in a korean hair color brand n did it to promote the colors...quite cool...tt was when i got to know her abt 10yrs ago...lol ;p my natural hair color has a v.strong yellow undertone n whatever color tt i did previously turned yellowish after a few washes...i tried various shades of browns n blondes...i thot tt ash brown is cool but it didnt last too...i also tried bleached streaks n the stylist put on blue dyes n it looked green...but tt too only lasted a week...copper color lasts on me...n red is the worst...it turned yellowish after only 3 washes...n i wash my hair everyday manz =.=" i havent tried purple before...n WHITE is a color tt i'll never try...so for those who suggested white, i give them moral support to dye their hair white! Really hope tt this wine color will last longer on a leechie o.O

Btw, leechie had a blast at Johnnie Walker private event...opened 2 bottles of Johnnie Walker Black Label =) i'm the waitress of the nite...really enjoyed pouring drinks...well, my frenz look drunk ;p thx Johnnie Walker for the memorable bday celebration this year =) took lotsa pics...photos r still in my fren's cam...so stay tuned for the pics ya ;p

Update:
It has been more than a week since my hair coloring job n i'm pleasantly surprised tt my leechie hair color still looks wine...pretty good ya =)

Leechie is a blur kid...i actually walked into my fren's shop n bot stuff there without realizing tt it's her shop...until i went ovr to her other shop n her staff told me abt it...i actually saw her mum with a small boy n thot tt they looked familiar...but i told myself tt many aunties look alike...until i found out tt it's really her mum n the small boy is her son...blur leechie =.="

Leechie is a blur kid these few days...i keep getting my dates wrong -.-" thot tt loreal sales starts on 15 dec instead of 15 nov n thot tt tangs sale was supposed to b thurs instead of tue...forgot abt stereolab anniversary party too...so i missed out on alot stuff! the tangs shu staff sold off the item tt they had reserved for me -.-" only managed to go down to loreal sales n tangs today...bot mascaras n eyeliner n lotsa shampoos...the keratase mgr was v.nice n patient n redken staff were v.nice too =)

Btw, happened to pass by Gucci juz nw...not sure if i'm being recognized or what...but walked right into the Gucci Bamboo Bag Exhibition event...not tt i mind the champagne served...lol ;p thinking if my uncle-ish frenz were to see this, bet they will associate Gucci with leechie again =.=" but i gotta say tt Gucci didnt pay leechie any endorsement fees =.="

Was out the entire day...went HQ for seminar...then pop by Anteprima Sale n bought a gold bag n black organizer...then had red wine at Skin Inc Anniversary party...then went to company movie event...dozed off during the Rapunzel 3D movie...my 1st 3D movie...then went Yello Jello Anniversary party...walked so muchie today tt i'm dead dead tired manz! -.-" then so tired tt it was already 2pm when i woke up the next day...damn tired manz...was supposed to attend seminar...but ended up shopping instead ;p

"A right relationship is not about how much Love you have in the beginning but how much Love you build till the end..."
i juz wanna a simple guy who will ♥ the leechie underneath my supposedly glamorous facade...is this such a tall order? =.="

Guess what? after all those observations abt how some guys prefer some less aesthetically pleasing older women...i juz won a Tri-Aktiline wrinkle filler...some consolation or i guess prevention is better than cure eh? lol ;p thx Beautymap for appreciating my leechie musings =)
