八卦就是這樣傳開的

朋友堆中,有些事就這樣傳了開去,又傳回來。

所以,要是不想某些人知,倒不如一開始便不要讓任何人知。

週末購物樂

禮拜五上班前去MAC買了禮拜四出的A Rose Romance系列中的口紅-A Rose Romance,還有早前提早推出的Double Dazzle系列中的Dazzleglass-Baby Sparks

搽上A Rose Romance後嘴唇會呈現一種很自然的粉紅色,我覺得任何膚色的女生都該有一支這隻顏色(或與其相似)的口紅。:)

看上去Baby Sparks的顏色與我家裡的Viva Glam VI SE (lipglass)及Partial To Pink (cremesheen glass)很相似,

但搽上紙巾後便覺得有頗大的分別。

又,我覺得Viva Glam VI SE的閃亮度與Baby Sparks有得揮。不過Baby Sparks的閃比較dramatic,Viva Glam VI SE的則比較“低調”。

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

昨天收到Coastal Scents的包裹,包括Brush Guard一套。現在不怕化妝掃變形了。:D 下圖中的brush guard size(左至右):large -> mediumx2 -> smallx2 -> extra small。

$4.95USD一套,有興趣的可以點此

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

逛Costco時看見Garnier Nutritioniste的優惠套裝,再望價錢牌,腦海霎時閃過這句:「嘩,好彩果日冇喺Superstore買!」$24.99CAD的這個優惠套裝有濕面巾兩包及兩支anti-puff eye roller。凈是那兩支eye roller在外面的價錢都已經高過$24.99CAD啦,高至$16.99一支都有,所以覺得這個package好抵!

Anti-puff eye roller很易用,在眼肚位置從內到外“碌”便可。

用後感:對眼肚浮腫快速見效,黑眼圈的話則要長一點的時間。

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

另,細佬早幾天買了Russell Peters 《Red, White and Brown》的DVD回來。

我在YouTube上已經看了三次..........不過再看依然很好笑!:P

飲茶@福聯

Metropolis福聯經裝修後,還未去飲過早茶。昨晚發牙痕跟媽咪提議去看看,果然今早不到十點便被她叫醒去飲茶。(我今早四點才睡啊。-_-")

等了不久便有位,而且是靠牆角的,真好。甫坐下點茶後,辣椒醬(定豆瓣醬?)+茶同時上桌,好上再好!以前往往要叫才會給辣椒醬,現在會主動喇。:D

點心不外乎是叫了蝦餃燒賣諸如此類。而福聯的蝦餃則是我的最愛。♥ 雖然今天的有點太乾了。

後來再加點了這道酥炸生蠔(純粹是因為我很久沒吃蚵仔酥。:P),$6.95CAD = 六隻蠔,還要是大size的!侍應上菜時我感到有點愕然,因為那隻碟真是很大很大呢,佔去了我們放點心的位置差不多一半。不過我跟媽咪都覺得生蠔不大新鮮。

一共叫了八樣點心,埋單連加一$46CAD。

Philosophy and the Philosopher's Stone

I just found out that for one of my philosophy courses, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is on the list of required readings. Well, I'm sure the Philosopher's Stone gotta have something to do with my Philosophy & Literature course. :) And my friend, Mr. E, is such a genius; he suggests borrowing the book from the library instead of buying it. Why didn't I think of that? Honestly, I felt utterly stupid when he gave that suggestion. meh =\

You know you've been playing too much Restaurant City when...

My oh-so-lacking-decoration restaurant. :)

The following lines are collected from Playfish's forum.
(Bolded ones are the ones that I'm guilty of, teehee :P)

You know you've been playing too much Restaurant City when...
- you keep finding yourself absent-mindedly whistling that monotonous repetitve tune played inside your restaurant
- you shake the trees outside your house, hoping that some money will pop out
- instead of hats, you wear a bucket/piece of cheese when you go out
- you cooked for yourself a lobster meal using nothing but a lobster, a piece of butter and leaf
- you can watch your customers come and go for hours without doing anything else online
- instead of locking your door, you put your chair or something against it
- you are watching these lines, you're busy thinking about your restaurant and ended up going back to the restaurant
- you've memorized all the answers to the food quizzes
- you silently curse your waiter for picking up that order when the customer is clearly dissatisfied with the plate in front of him
- you start learning how to cook by looking at your cooks
- you constantly check how many friend invites you have
- you look at the time and tell yourself, "Gosh, my chefs are all dead."
- RC goes maintenance you whine like a baby
- you see someone in the street cross-dressed, with purple skin, a heart on their forehead and a block of cheese on their head, and think it's perfectly normal
- after eating a banana, you place the peel on the ground and start poking it, hoping that it will transform into a dollar
- you go into a restaurant and tell the owner how much more efficient it would be if they had an "island layout"
- you go to the grocery store to buy an apple, and think you got a great deal when it doesn't cost 110 dollars
- you imagine what will pop up on the customer's head while walking into/out of the restaurant
- you keep on hoping that one day RC can give out free ingredient every time you visit your friends
- instead of studying and be totally prepared for an exam you know much better all the ingredients you have in RC
- you feel the need to draw padlock on all your food so other people won't steal it and leave something you have 50 of
- you hear sounds of chewing, frying, utensils hitting plates, and the cash register bell ringing in your head
- you start to curse your slow waiters and cooks
- you don't want to see another caesar salad or mapo tofu in your life ever again because you sat there staring at the screen at them making the same meals from 11am-5am a day
- you neglect to buy beans or garlic in real life because you have too many of each on RC

Yet Another Rant :P

So I was at London Drugs yesterday, looking for a new screen for my dad's shaver. As I got to the locked box where they keep all the screens and cutters, I realized that all the screens come with compatible cutters in a package. Yet from what I remembered, my mom had always been getting the screen by itself for the past few years, so I decided to ask a staff if they still sell the screens by itself.

I went up to this girl with a tag on her shirt saying "Photo Specialist", 'cause she was the closest one to me; and the fact that she was standing at the camera counter looking at her nails made me think that she must not be busy at that point. So anyway, I went up and asked her if I could ask her a question about the shaver accessories. (Oh yeah, I was nice to ask her that 'cause she wouldn't take her eyes off her nails.) However, after she heard my question, she looked at me as if I just insulted her or something, and asked, "Isn't it better to ask a guy?" Then she turned around to the guy standing behind her who was busy at the cash register, and said "I don't need a shaver for my facial hair, right?"

...What the hell? Does it require one to use a shaver in order to tell me whether all the screens come with cutters or not? I mean, say if someone went up to a young beauty advisor in the cosmetics department, and asked about some anti-aging products, would the beauty advisor reply something like "Isn't it better to ask an older person? I don't need to use anti-aging products yet, right?" I don't think so. But, if that "Photo Specialist" girl was the beauty advisor, what I described just now could definitely happen.

That girl is probably the most useless worker I have ever seen.

想點?

收到Cancer Agency寄來的一封信,日期為四月十號。信的內容是關於appointment要改期,而更改後的日期則是四月九號。..........封信都未開始寫個appointment time就已經過咗,想點?還有,信是十四號才寄出的囉!打呢封信嗰個人可以炒得。

幾段

@關於《Gay Or Not, Does It Matter?》這篇,有點想補充。我個人是相信那位朋友不是gay的,純粹是直覺。

@這兩天出門前都在臉上塗了Neutrogena pure & free™防曬乳液。雖然已經是oil-free再加non greasy,但用後還是標油。討厭。(奇怪,我在官網找來找去還是找不到pure & free™的產品。)

@去巴士站途中,看見一棵開滿白色花的樹。圖中的是什麼花?沒什麼味道。

@禮拜一晚上與accy去了粥麵館打冷,當天還用了MAC的Paint作眼影base。終.於.給.我.找.到.了!三、四個小時後我的眼妝還在,神奇!奇就奇在用MAC Paint Pot還是會有積線出現,但MAC Paint就沒有。我還以為除卻包裝外兩者是一樣的。o.O

@在London Drugs看見Rimmel的指甲油,有我很喜歡的紫色。615 Night Before,顏色很美。稍嫌掃不夠闊,而且甲油質地太稠了。

@上了三天班後又到週末,這個禮拜連我都覺得自己過得好slack。死未?xP

@又,我有沒有說過很討厭別人不回email?收到email後看完,可以回句「我收到你的email了」嗎?當然,看完「我收到你的email了」那封email後不用再回,否則會沒完沒了的。

Gay Or Not, Does It Matter?

The topic on a friend's sexual orientation has come up in a conversation between me and another friend recently. When I asked the second friend what his reaction would be like if the first friend was indeed gay and confessed to him, he gave me a slightly disgusted look on the face and said he would punch the guy in the face. Well, I assume the punching part was just a joke. But, you get the idea.

To me, it doesn't matter whether he's gay or not. As I love him for the person he is, and at heart, I think he is the most wonderful person I have ever met. :)

《東Touch》 Featuring 舊同學

托細佬買了最新一期的《東Touch》,就為了看Landon個訪問。誰會料到昔日上法文堂口花花又不時爆句粗口(!)的他,今天已經是一名足球員+音樂人?haha 不過又真的替他感到開心,他創作的音樂還蠻不錯的。:) 這位人兄早前跟我說他的廣東話有進步到,I can't imagine... -_-" 不過至少他唱了句「我見你細細粒,揸住杯橙汁」,比起以前,確實有進步嘅。呵~

送上:Landon Feat. JokerMonkey - Mut Doe Duk (chinese version Light Me Up)

保持距離

上星期,與E先生開心見誠說要是他不能送我回家的話,我可以叫我媽來接我的。因為這兩次他都叫馬騮仔送我回家,又碰巧這兩次馬騮仔的女朋友都不在。我不想在馬騮仔的女朋友不在場時坐馬騮仔車,引起她有不必要的誤會。這些不必要的誤會,我之前從別人身上就領教過了。意見就在此分歧了,E先生堅持這樣的一件事沒有問題,也不會產生誤會......男和女的想法大不同。對於我來說,與已經有另一半的異性,還是保持該有的距離好。我最怕惹麻煩上身了。:(

四月中的寒夜

四月中的這晚,依然寒冷。
又一個睡不著的晚上,陪伴著我的,是波波燈+兩張被。
真係好凍啊喂~ xS

Come Back to Me - Utada Hikaru

Somehow the way Utada sings this song reminds me of Beyonce. o.O Anyway, "Come Back to Me" totally caught my attention when I was shopping at Suzy Shier. Who would've thought? *o* But I knew it was Utada right away. :) Just now I searched on YouTube for the music video of this song, and came across a couple videos of her singing it live. Honestly, I found it unbearable to listen (the live version), especially when she tried to hit that highest note yet failed, and resulted a cracked voice. -_-" I'll stick with the album version for good. :P

**Update: Alright, apparently, Mr. CMChan says the mp3 version I posted last night is actually a slower version of the original "Come Back to Me". Well, I knew there was something weird with the song, but I couldn't figure out what. So anyway, I decide to take that off and post the music video instead! And not to mention that, Utada sounds like a man at the beginning of that slow version (the "the rain falls on my window" part). =\

ecoTOOLS Blush Brush + Foundation Brush

在經濟低迷的狀況下,壓根兒不願花太多錢在妝物上。前天在London Drugs入手的ecoTOOLS blush brush ($5.99CAD) + foundation brush ($6.99CAD),經濟實惠兼好用。♥

打冷@粥麵館

accy去了粥麵館打冷。好好味!

連續兩天都吃了熱氣嘢,是時候戒一戒口。:P

好好味又好熱氣

避風塘炒蜆@粥麵館:夠晒惹味,正!正!正!

金沙炸湯圓@順峰:奶黃+咸蛋黃餡=so good!還有一個乒乓球的外形..........

我愛上的St. Ives Hand Cream

不油膩:♥♥♥♥♥
防水性:♥♥♥
持久度:♥♥♥♥
價錢:♥♥♥♥♥

前幾年在food court工作時雙手常常濕水,即使到現在手還是偏乾,而且有很多細紋。因此hand cream已經成為了我生活中不可缺少的一份子,買著買著家裡的hand cream都已經有六、七支了。但那六、七支當中,我覺得只有Crabtree & Evelyn的Gardeners Hand Therapy比較有效。早前從同事Holly處得到一包牙醫診所專用hand cream的sample,還是不行。上個禮拜看見St. Ives的Vitamin E Hand Cream,心想平平地買支試試看也好。結果OK喎,效果甚至比Neutrogena, Crabtree & Evelyn的顯著。價錢更是最低的,所以便宜的東西未必不好。:P 這支St. Ives hand cream,我最喜歡在臨睡前搽,到第二天早上起來時雙手感覺依然超滋潤的說!

題外話,St. Ives的產品真的很不錯,尤其是那Apricot Scrub,磨完塊面便變得滑嘟嘟。極力推薦!

Happy Easter!

Good Friday is here, which means I'm already on my extra longgg weekend (as I'm not scheduled to work until next Wednesday)! I think it's time to get some quality sleep. :D (And just what am I doing here at 6:30AM?) Anyway, here are some Easter goodies I received at work last night. Yar, I can totally sense another breakout coming. :P

Okay... seriously, I didn't expect gummy bunnies (yes, gummy bunnies not bears) in there. It seems so unhygienic since they're not individually wrapped after all. =\ But I finished all the gummy bunnies already, lalala~

Have a great weekend! :D

請給我...勇氣

so, so, close; only one step away.
but, when?
don't tell me to give up now,
when i finally see what it is that i truly want.

勇氣 - 梁靜茹

作詞:瑞業 作曲:光良

終於作了這個決定 別人怎麼說我不理
只要你也一樣的肯定
我願意天涯海角都隨你去
我知道一切不容易
我的心一直溫習說服自己
最怕你忽然說要放棄

愛真的需要勇氣 來面對流言蜚語
只要你一個眼神肯定 我的愛就有意義
我們都需要勇氣 去相信會在一起
人潮擁擠我能感覺你
放在我手心裡 你的真心

如果我的堅強任性
會不小心傷害了你
你能不能溫柔提醒
我雖然心太急 更害怕錯過你

這麼長一段 - 藍又時

詞/曲:藍又時

沒有限制 你的愛情 一望無際
沒有規矩 沒有習題 自由的你
我明白 你的關心

沒有停止 你的愛情 很貼心
沒有休息 沒有暫停 真實的你
我知道 你嘗試 帶我去
我曾經漫不經心的 拒絕你

這麼長一段 才知道世界會變換
這麼長一段 才知道你陪我到現在
有那麼長一段 我的眼淚你收藏起來
有那(這)麼長一段 才知道不離不棄的愛

Lyrics Source: Mojim.com

Facebook無真心?

看見了一句差不多是這個意思的話:
「在Facebook上與你聯絡的人,大多數都是平常不會跟你聯絡的人。而與你最親的人,大多數都不會在Facebook上add你或者跟你有互動。」

某人不願在Facebook add我是因為這個原因嗎?meh =\

@約了Holly在粥麵館食晏,兩個人叫了兩碗粥,鮮蝦腸粉,椒鹽雞膝,還有酥炸鯪魚球!多謝Holly請客,下次到我。:)

@吃過午飯後雖然已經三點多,但離開工時間還有差不多四個小時。我好nerdy地去了Starbucks讀書兼做功課,但其實那份功課是上個禮拜三要交㗎囉!

@又不知怎地,居然花了一個多小時便做完,待回家打入MS Word就搞掂。

@剩下兩個小時,去了Starbucks旁的Main & Broadway Nails & Esthetics Salon(*)修指甲,選了很自然的顏色。之前偶爾都會經過這店,但真的走進去卻是第一次。普通修甲$20CAD+5% GST,比pure nail bar便宜,但效果似乎更理想。而且,店裡有China Glaze的指甲油!終於有機會讓我試試看了。開心開心 :D

@弄好指甲再吹乾後,店員在指甲上噴了一層東西,應該是幫助讓甲油持久一點的吧?反正應該就是因為噴了那東西,我的指甲上的甲油即使經過今晚上班後還是像新的一樣!*0* 上班時我可是不斷地在打字啊。嗯,這店取代了pure nail bar在我心中的位置。>=)

(圖中無名指上的血漬是修甲時弄到的,沖完涼還有血水滲出來。-_-" paper cut則是工作時的戰績。:P)

Grilled Chicken Classic @ McDonald's

麥當勞之前有個叫Chicken McGrill的雞飽,但不知從什麼時候開始,Chicken McGrill不再叫Chicken McGrill,變成Grilled Chicken Classic。落order時還要記得說是要grilled的,因為menu上並沒有Grilled Chicken Classic,只有Crispy Chicken Classic。

記得Chicken McGrill消失後第一次入麥當勞想叫個Chicken McGrill,個cashier望住我擘大個口得個窿,跟我說沒有這樣東西。再問有沒有grilled的雞飽,cashier還是說沒有。當時我心在想:「不會吧?難道我之前那幾年都是在發夢,由頭到尾都沒有Chicken McGrill這個雞飽?!」

其實發夢的應該是那個cashier吧?他至少都可以告訴我Chicken McGrill已變成Grilled Chicken Classic了啊。

攝時間的PK

有幾次...
媽:佢只不過係搵你攝時間
我:大家咁話啦

講真,我又何嘗不是曾經利用他攝時間呢?
大家互利互惠,幾好啊。
有些人聽見我這樣說覺得我好PK,但我可以好肯定地講一句:

「若然我是一個PK,那麼他肯定是一個更PK的PK。」

But don't get me wrong, I don't hate him; I dislike him, in every possible way.

有聽有講

有沒有試過,和一個人交往很多年認識頗深後,才發現原來那個人跟自己並非那麼合拍?

比如說在一段關係一定會有溝通的需要。可以是兩個人輪流做speaker或listener;也可以是一個人永遠是speaker,另一個則站在listener的位置。若一段關係是屬於前者的,應該不會太差,至少有來有往可以交換意見。但若是屬於後者的,speaker那一方永遠都不會知到listener在想什麼的,不是嗎?只有speaker講,冇listener講。或許,有些人會說listener自己不主動開口。但也有可能是speaker根本不給機會listener說出心裡的想法?又或者是listener之前曾經是過表達自己的意見,但speaker卻是很冷淡的不作回應。久而久之,listener習慣了當一個只聽speaker說而把想說的東西往肚裡塞的人。

可能,是因為自己現在就是站在listener的這個角色,才會有這些想法在腦海裡。又或許,我現在所追求的東西,有點不一樣了?我不希望永遠都站在聽的那方。不過說真的,友人肯告訴我那些事情,我很高興,也覺得非常榮幸,畢竟他不是那種會跟任何一個認識的人講那些事的人。但有時候,我也會想他聽一下我說的,給一下feedback。我不想等待我的回應就只是句「嗯」,或是一陣子的沉默。

寫這篇,純粹發洩一下,不大在乎那人會否看見,也不會直接叫他來看。反正,他也知道這裡的存在,有緣的話,他便會看見。

三更半夜的幾段

@深夜兩點半,書讀唔入腦,assignment卻早已在上星期到期要交。拖拖拖,到現在都還沒開始做。對於讀書這件事,我真的很缺乏self-motivation。

@這幾天沉迷在Facebook的Restaurant Ciy,包括現在讀書讀唔入腦的這個時刻。有點沉迷得過火,一起身就玩到返工,放工再繼續玩到上床睡。也慶幸自己沒有laptop,否則我肯定會連睡覺的時間也不放過繼續玩。

@但,其實玩來幹啥?玩樂應該是讓人放鬆的吧?Restaurant City卻令我變得神經緊張,比如說當我由遊戲繼續run時我要三不五時去看一下,否則那些“員工”隨時會由綠色happy face轉成藍綠色not-so-happy face,甚至會變成藍色的sad face再昏倒。我話,這個game一點也不會讓人放鬆囉。

@最近聽了Eason的全新廣東大碟《H3M》。怎麼說?就整張大碟來說沒有什麼很突出的東西,但我又覺得首首歌都幾好聽。很久很久沒試過一首歌都冇飛地聽完一隻CD,多謝你,陳奕迅。

@個人比較喜歡的有《於心有愧》及《沙龍》,旋律好聽,詞也不錯的說。

@就剛剛的一分鐘,我彷彿聽見樓上屋主一家有人從床上碌咗落地,「BONG」了一下很大聲。o.O

@四月一日愚人節,會不會有人真的玩April Fool's joke,不向公司請假但卻no show呢?呵。:P
