Guess what? the deliveryman came on mon but nobody was around...n i have a package from taiwan...think it's from kevin lao shi! <3
The mysterious package from dear kevin lao shi...all the way from taiwan! <3
Was really excited n kept in suspension for a couple of days manz! finally got this package on thursday after my leechie mum helped me pick it up from our local post office =) wanna make a guess what kevin lao shi sent a leechie? ;p
Generous set of Beautymaker and Vinvin products sent to leechie by dear kevin lao shi! <3
Well, here it is! Beautymaker liquid foundation, new multi-color pressed powder, dark purple&grey eyeshadow palette n nude color lip palette. Vinvin oil control serum n toner! Together with a hand-signed note from kevin lao shi! =)
Look at the exquisite yet cutie packaging of the products! <3 the lip prints on the lip palette really jazz up the casing =)
Check out the lovely colors of the eye palette (great for smoky eyes, methinks) n nude lip palette! <3
The nude lip palette actually comes with a pretty black velvet pouch <3
Wanna thx kevin lao shi for his generosity n his PR lady for the faciliation! really appreciate it! =) It's the first time tt leechie has received a package from an international celebrity ler! @.@" the eyeshadow palette looks so pretty n the multi-color pressed powder looks so interesting =) the nude lip palette is somthg new to me cos i have naturally pinkish lips n i have never tried anything so nude before...didnt know tt kevin lao shi was going to send me this vinvin set of oil control serum n toner n i already got ppl to order those for me ler...but my order wont b arriving in singapore any time soon o.O shall review on the items once i have tried them! =)
Leechie was watching this particular episode of this taiwanese talkshow in which kevin lao shi appeared as a guest...didnt know tt kevin lao shi had such a challenging childhood n overcame so muchie stuff to get to where he is today! btw, he looks younger than his real age (juz found out tt he's 40 ler) n his income seems to be abt $1mil/yr...wow o.O do check out this inspiring episode of the taiwanese talkshow here:
Well, for those of u who r too lazy to watch the entire 1 hr episode...i can only say tt u hav really miz out on somthg really inspiring o.O” kevin lao shi recounted this particular incident whereby his colleagues who returned from overseas asked him to go to a posh restaurant...he didnt have much cash with him n everything was so damn exp on the menu so he ordered the cheapest item on the menu...he didnt understand the english menu then n it turned out tt he had ordered the topping for ice-cream... n out of embarrassment, he excused himself to go to the toilet n didnt return...after tt incident, he was damn determined to improve his english n make alot of money!!! i guess what we can learn from his experience is tt...sometimes life has hit such a low point tt it couldnt get any worse than all the shit tt we r experiencing right now...so we gotta initiate a turnaround...it starts from us! always rem tt...what cant kill me can only make me stronger!!!
My Near-Death Experience:
Juz to share my personal experience...not many ppl know this...n som ppl have always wondered y i’m so motivated once i have set my goals...they dont understand me...anyway, not many ppl understand me...som ppl thot tt they understand me...but the sad fact is they dont -.-“ anyway, back to my life story...i was pretty close to death at the age of 20...it started with a mere insect bite which got infected after i poke it...n no thx to the crappy doc who prescribed a drug tt i’m allergic to -.-“ i landed up in the hospital...fighting for my dear leechie life -.-“ sorry tt i'm not gonna reveal the name of this drug...lest someone tries to spike my drink or food -.-" no wanna disappear from the surface of this earth for no apparent reason -.-" still rem tt my blood pressure was dropping at an alarming rate then...rem all those docs n nurses fussing ovr a leechie then...but sorry to disappoint any leechie nemesis out there, my leechie will to live is juz too strong...so i survived thru this ordeal! anyway, those nurses lied to encourage me, saying tt i would leave the hospital with a brand new body n everything would b well, etc...they did a surgery for the infected area but they couldnt stitch me up cos it was due to an infection n tt operation left me with an open wound which took a long time to heal (i had to go for cleaning of the wound n change of dressing every single day after tt surgery...silly us opt for the leechy family doc instead of the foc uni nurse) -.-" n i still bear the scar today...but perhaps, it serves as a reminder as to how close i was to death then o.O i think i did come back stronger...after being so close to death...i felt i was given a 2nd shot at life again...what cant kill me can only make me stronger! perhaps, this kinda explains my fighting spirit n competitive streak after tt near-death experience! o.O
Btw, ipad has arrived on our shores n according to the doc fren whose clinic is juz above the imac appln store...the q is simply crazy @.@" no offence to all the apple fans here, but a fren was saying tt ipad is juz like a prada bag...u buy it not to use it but to carry it around n to be seen with it...lol ;p cant imagine the q when iphone 4 reaches here at the end of the month? o.O"
leechie is a sad kid today...cos she has butter fingers n the jar of L'egere moisturizer tt i bot when kevin lao shi was here juz slipped off my fingers n dropped to the floor...didnt realize tt the container was made of glass until then...crapz...cant retrieve even a drop -.-" but i gotta say tt my floor is v.well-moisturized then -.-"
Btw, leechie was rather amused to meet a leechie fan this wk...lol ;p he was under the impression tt leechie is some cosplay-er! o.O well, gotta clarify tt leechie has not done any cosplay before n she doesnt walk outta a comic strip...leechie is a real person ya...i'm not perfect...in fact, i'm nowhere near perfect...i'm juz a v.ordinary person with my own insecurities n flaws o.O but i wouldnt mind dressing up as a gothic lolita if there r suitable costumes...use ur imagination ya...lol ;p hmmm, maybe i can try to organize some meet-the-fans session someday ya? lol ;p (tt's leechie A380 ego at work again ;p) btw, i have juz updated leechie fans comments on the right side of this blog...juz scroll down ya ;)
Btw, i finally managed to find the pretty denim-with-lace clog-type of heels, which kevin lao shi showed, here in sg...keke...but the heels r v.high ler...can hardly walk in these heels o.O"

Some interesting quotes:
"Brand is vanity. Sales is sanity. Cash is reality."
"Money is a lubricant. It lets u “slide” through life instead of having to “scrape” by. Money brings freedom—freedom to buy what you want , & freedom to do what you want with your time. Money allows you to enjoy the finer things in life as well as giving you the opportunity to help others have the necessities in life. Most of all, having money allows you not to have to spend your energy worrying about not having money." ~ Harv
"Anyone who says that money isn’t important doesn’t have any! Rich people understand the importance of money and the place it has in our society. On the other hand, poor people validate their financial ineptitude by using irrelevant comparisons. They’ll argue, “Well, money isn’t important as love.” Now, is that comparison dumb or what? What’s more important, your arm or your leg? Maybe they’re both important." ~ Harv
"Believe That You're Enough: If you believe that you're "not enough," you'll validate that belief and create the reality that you don't have enough. But if you believe that you're more than enough, you'll create more than enough in every part of your life." ~ Harv
"Poor people will do almost anything to avoid problems. They see a challenge and they run…the secret to success, my friends, is not to try to avoid or get rid of or shrink from your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than your problems. How BIG can you play?" ~ Harv
"Rich people…take responsibility for the results in their lives and act upon the mind-set 'It will work because I’ll make it work.'" ~ Harv
"Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. It's how you feel that's more important. Age is but a figure. Smile always!!!"
"Never allow someone to be your priority while you're just their option."
"If you don't get noticed, you don't have anything. You just have to be noticed, but the art is in getting noticed naturally."
"You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth..."
"It's not your life that sucks...it's your THINKING that sucks!" ~ Louise Hay
"It's not what the vision is, it's what the vision does."
"If you could go back and live your life differently, what would you change?"
"No one can go back and change a bad beginning, but anyone can start anything anytime and create a successful ending."
"We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are" ~ Oprah
"If you're able to be yourself, then you have no competition. All you have to do is get closer and closer to that essence." ~ Barbara Cook
"Competition is a by-product of productive work, not its goal. A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others."
"Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing." ~ Denis Waitley
"There is one saying, since thinking is FREE, we must as well Dream BIG.."
"A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown." ~ Denis Waitley
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you have imagined."
"If you have a dream.... Don't sit on it....Go for it.."
"Many of us go around and look for 'the answer' thinking that someone has a magic pill to realize our dream. But the truth is that we already possess the answer inside us. All we have to do is to discover the answer and ACT on it!"
"The idea is to use your strengths and delegate your weaknesses to someone else who is strong in that area."
"A brand is a set of differentiating promises that link a product to its customers." ~ Stuart Agres
"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably in themselves will not realized."
"Identify & build on areas that cannot be easily taken away."
"When the whole world seems to be against me and anything I touch becomes poisoned, when people think of giving up as the best solution, for me, giving up is the hardest. So keep trying and trying! Be motivated because whatever has to be done depends on you!" ~ Moses A. Alemya
"When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." ~ Sherlock Holmes
"Don't let the past steal your present." ~ Terri Guillemets
"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter."
"The worst thing is holding on to someone who doesn’t want to be held on to."
"An "ex" is called an "ex" because it’s an example of what you shouldn’t have again in the future."
"Never cry for those who do not deserve your tears.
But those who deserve, they would not let you cry."
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." ~ Hellen Keller
"When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly."
"Most people achieved their greatest success one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure."
"In 3 years from now, where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? What do you want to do? Time is precious. Invest your time and money to reach where you want to be."
Check out this damn touching clip...i actually cried while watching this on tv for the first time...
This clip reminds me of a leechie every morn o.O"
This clip also reminds me of a sleepy leechie @.@"
"when you learn to love yourself, you are better off by far, i think you could be whatever you want to be, if you could realise all the dreams inside, don't be afraid if you got something to say, just open up your heart and let it show you the way, don't you ever wish you were someone else, you were meant to be the way you are exactly, believe in yourself, reach down inside, the love you find will set you free, believe in yourself, you will come alive, have faith in what you do, you will make it through"
I still rem meeting Joey Mcintyre in person at his autograph session at tower records donkey years ago...hmmm, i might still have his autographed CD lying somewhere o.O
