behind my instagram photo


Recently i saw someone posted about how instagram pictures vs reality shots
and it got me thinking how true it is the way she wrote . 
Like everybody thought it was picture perfect  and all the shots was actually what it happened, 
but truth is it's just a staged photo

Staged Photo #1 
like this picture of mine
well, i had to command Dan's hand to put it at some angle so that i can snap it, and we are not exactly holding each other hand in reality, both of us are busy playing our phones
so yeah, this is how instagram manipulate us in staging our own fantasy rather than snapping what really happen
Staged photo #2


What other people see: 
oh so sweet! you went swimming with your boyfriend!
what it really was:
i literally have to beg him to snap this haha
because first it's a public pool, he was very embarrassed to take a photo when there's a bunch of people swimming around. For me, i don't think they actually minded or will judge us for anything, i mean they came here to swim, so what if we just take out our phone and snap a few shots? not really embarrasing right?   haha so it was all staged, reality he was dead embarrassed 

staged photo #3
what others see: happen to be getting down the car 
what it really was: the fact that i have to "act" getting down the car about five times to get a good shot is hilarious
and yes, this is a self timer shot, i had to keep clicking the camera each time the camera clicks away , and by the time i get it done, im all sweaty and yucky 
haha

Staged photo #4
What others see: awwh you played ping pong together him, thats sweet
what it really was: ya i DID go play ping pong with him, but most of the time we were actually throwing balls at each other hahahaha
and also throwing the cookie monster at each other too, in fact this way we would sweat it out more than just standing there stagnant hitting ping pong balls on the bat with stoney face. 

Staged photo #5


What others see: me getting ready to travel and waiting with that kind of poofy face .__.
what it really was: the fact that i have to quickly ask my mum to click on the shutter before anyone catches sight of me posing with the luggage was embarrassing ! and the luggage isn't mine at all, i just pick any good looking luggage for the shot and quickly pose with it and be done with it. 
haha
you are all deceived 

Staged photo #6
What everyone think it is: oh you're at a cafe drinking coffee now

Truth is: i do not drink Coffee. XD that was Dan's coffee , i used to drink coffee but it's not too good for me because i have loads of panic attacks, so i do not want to risk getting it again by drinking even a sip of coffee. 
so yeah, this was just staged to tell everyone i'm at a cafe now (: 

Staged photo #7

what everybody think it is: owh you're reading books together with him, that's so sweet
what it really was: the books are props, we can't even understand what language the book was, it was all in German
we just need to do something for a picture haha

Don't loose myself in you

i've been blogging for FOUR years now, it's a slow progress but this is my 740th post , i never stop blogging for more than two weeks, it's just a part of me and it used to be somewhat a private diary until it gets more attention after i share it out on facebook and it became a public diary
and this literally swallowed me up because i was restrained from writing too much of myself , my private life, my personal thoughts. 

this sucks, i know, i don't want to be drowned in the whirlpool of commercial blog. I call it commercial blog because they keep blogging about product reviews which they were given it free or paid for. 
i done that loads of time, and now it's time to look into it and think properly
do i really like doing all those things? 
or was it because they give you free product that you just really MUST have to try it?
or was it because it will be a nice portfolio for other sponsors to view and you will get a shot of being 'known' off ?

don't loose myself into that whirlpool, no
so right now i am going quiet for awhile till i figure out what i like to do 
i use to blog almost on everything and rant about almost on everything like nobody's business, 
this must come back to me before i start to further indulge myself into products which i am not even interested in. 



alright then , so me and Dan passed our two years together by doing nothing but going swimming and video calling each other every night. 
He is just like my guardian and caretaker, i mean i am more of a dependent rather than being independent. 
this is quite serious because i'm going to uni in another two months time and if i don't pull myself together, i will fall apart
and he never fret whenever i call him to run errands for me. 
like meeting up with my customers, 
go to the post office to post things to me
come to my house whenever i feel unwell and just..well only want to see his face because by looking at him , i will escape reality. 
and no doubt
i gained 3 kg after being in a relationship with him
our dates will always consist of food
and food makes him look skinnier while me looking like a baboon backside
that's unfair, i know
two months for us to stay closer together
and then ,we be off to our new environment with new surrounding 
that sound sad


boxes and boxes from various companies!
anyway
there are some companies that think we are too easy to deal with
give us a rm20 voucher code with a minimum spent of rm100 in their website
this is cheap 
there are also some small companies who think we work for free
our time is gold , our blog post is gold too
even a typist in a company whom job is to type letters, get paid money for every letters she typed. 
and we even have to do some research on this website our own and try to comprehend the whole thing on our own
this i shall ignore
but don't you loose yourself in them
i beginning to think what if this is more than whatever i'm diagnose with
like what if the doctor diagnosed wrongly
what if my lungs is the culprit
what if i'm going to die
lol
*touch wood*
constant battle with this has not stop me from going outside and be as normal as possible
of course going outside , i'm always with someone whom i can trust with
like Dan or my family, going out alone still is a challenge for me
you know there'll be nobody there for you once you're outside and alone
don't loose myself in this panic disorder,
never loose myself in it


my online store is doing greeeaaat now!
i remember when i first launch it, there is not much people who seems interested in it. i thought of giving up after my first collection, but then i kept getting engaged at clothes after clothes my suppliers seem to gave me
all the clothes are too pretty to go off hand and i seriously wanted my customer to see how pretty it is!
i try my first few batches of preorder (it takes only 3-5 days compare to other websites which take 2-3 weeks!) yes, i opt for express shipping . 
by then, 
perseverance is the key for success
it blooms gradually, more and more people are flooding in, 
my wechat space are crowding in with new people from all over Malaysia
it's something spectacular to view 
because never would i thought of corresponding with people i never knew off all over Malaysia
i really thank you for those who support me in all my batches
and ya, 
when i grow up (as in when i am able to go outside and find manufactures and factories) i would sooo love to produce my own designs of clothes
your own set of clothes would definitely be more special out there
like my sister said, lots of singapore online store are all self manufactured
this idea seem great because not many shops in Malaysia are self manufactured 

still this will be my temporary job, don't loose myself in this too



one last picture before i end my post here
this was taken at cat cafe , Penang

and i like to live my life happily nowadays, 
i mean i would like to go outside and enjoy , experience something new
before i get thrown into University where i know well my life would be so hectic i can hardly breathe
and panic attacks scares me, i think my roommate would be so terrify at me
haha
anyway, even if life is bad, life eats you up and turn you upside down
i don't really wish to see it makes you miserable the whole time
instead you should fight it
you should look at it and say i can deal with this, i'm going to show you that even if you mess up my life, i WILL be happy!

till then, Dan is going Australia without me
*cry a river *
and he promised say will bring me go Melaka when he gets back
let's see if he still has money to go heritage walking with me or not! Because i'm pretty sure he be dead broke after a week abroad
(pouting)

today post will be my favorite post of all because it's about outfit!
i am really a huge fan over clothes, i can splurge on anything when it comes to something i wear (i don't really do much on beauty if you ever follow my blog) i just love to dress up and play around with clothing item 

today, all my clothing item are all from Chicnova
they are an online store which provides the most awesome and trendiest clothing i've ever seen
and best still, they provide free shipping all throughout the world
that's pretty cool huh

BoyLondon crop top
High rise denim shorts
v-neck blazer 
are all from Chicnova 

my favorite would be the shorts, even though it's really big, but it is meant to be baggy to create a boyish look. 
and it comes with a belt which is pretty nice because you can adjust the height you want, 
if you want it to be high waisted, then you can cinch at the waist there, 
or you want it to be low waist, you can still adjust 
it's pretty flexible




a close up look of the blazer
the blazer is really good quality 
and judging by the price, 
it HAS to be good quality haha
32 USD 


one last post before i end here

anyway i've been rusting all over here , 
last time i use to be the poser, 
but now i'm just stiff like a log , maybe i loose a few interest in snapping pictures of myself because it just take so much hardwork to self shoot yourself and edit and making sure it comes out right
all i need is a photographer to do all the work
that's pretty selfish right? haha
but anyway
i am geared up towards my online shop now
and i'm sorry if i sidetrack my blog in the meantime, 
i'm sure i be blogging again after i go into UNI where my online shop will not take up so much time anymore. 

cheers (:

after massaging it and letting it absorb fully into the skin, 
it's VERY smooth and moist (in a good way though)
