I am contemplating on whether I should get this.

For someone who doesn't wear necklaces much - I want it. I want it real bad.

But for $60.00... should I? or should i not? Give me a flower to break away its petals.

Or better - give me three flowers that dangle upon a sturdy silver string - made of metal and uber shiny.

Oh my! Uni has just begun once again after a very short one week break. ><" Booo... And whilst jamming my uni luggage into my bag this morning, I came across a small thin piece of cardboard - an invite that I had totally forgotten about. A ball!! A ball with the theme 1940s SWING. Oh shites. It's this Thursday night. Oh what to do, what to do? I don't even have a clue what the 1940s SWING is all about, despite the desperate googling. And oh - eww, the hairstyle... what to do, what to do?

Hmm... At least I have my trusty pair of t-strap heels lurking in the corner of the cupboard...

P.S - if anyone has any images and/or fashion tips to inspire me, please send them this way. ^-^

I woke up this morning with a bruise on my left eye. Did I punch myself at night whilst I was asleep? My eye lid is swollen now, it's hurting me and I can't even look up without flinching my face. *grimace*

It hurts so much that I had woken up with tears in my eye and the tears must have twinkled brightly for me to see the sun rays reflect from my bedroom mirror and scatter across the ceiling before dawn even broke...

And my tears become muddled with my words. And my thoughts.

Yayes to mid-semester break! And yayes to Spring for bringing the warmth and glorious rays of sunshine. I'm loving it. And to celebrate, I bought myself this gorgeous dress from Target and I just can't wait to match different accessories with the dress. Love the neutral palette of the dress. Love love love. Did I mention that I love the dress? lol. =D

My sister calls it "the sack dress." I can see where she's going with it but heck, the sack looks good, don't you think? kekekeke. Do you name your dresses like me? The pinstripes, the itchy dress, the sheep's dress, THAT dress ... not very original names are they and hmm...not very appealing names either. LOL! But you get the flow... =p

Do you have more original names for your dresses or other clothing items?

Hmm... I can't wait to wear it with uber-tall wedges!! HEARTS.

Well, what can I say? I'm finally back? Yes. It feels really good to be back. How long has it been? 1 month? 2 months? I can't quite remember, shall have to look back on my last post. lo.. =D I would of came back quicker if I had the time. Time passes by so fast. It's strange and frightening, and yet at the same time, quite exciting. But yes, as I said before, I would of came back quicker - to write one or two posts but during that period, I was lost for words. Not because I was depressed - that took me 2 weeks to get me back on my feet - it was terrible - everything was grey and dull. Does that happen to you too? When things just go down? Do the colours around you fade rapidly??.... Aaah...

But no, not because of that. But because of post-depression??? I wouldn't have called it depression. More like an anxiety attack?? Post anxiety attack then. No, let's term it the 'identity lost'...hmmm... The first time. Right before I turned twenty. Teen-life crisis? No, that sounds dreadful. Questions - much, many, plenty, just lots and lots. What am I doing? What do I want? What do I need? Where I am going? Where do I want to be? .... hmm... Who am I?

Who am I?

hmm...Teen-crisis sounds a bit right now... I remember thinking what my teen-hood was like. What experiences did I have? Well, I have to admit - nothing exciting. There was never that situation with drugs, alcohol, underage clubbing, coming back home real late (early in the morning).............. Of course, they are no experiences that should be experienced let alone be wanted, but .... how can I put this right so that I don't sound like a dumb fool?... That feeling of wanting to say - yes, yes I've experienced it... No, more like... I guess to experience life?...

At the same time, it felt like as though I wasn't doing anything right. Nothing that I can truly say that I succeeded in. This is one fault that I've come to realise. I always leave things unfinished...incomplete - is it because I give up real easily? Or is it because I get real bored easily? Or is it because I haven't found my true passion?

Whatever it is, I guess...well, I guess that is what the 20s are for... to find out who you are...who i am...

*eyes closed*


You just got to run for it. To go for it. Never give up. Hope.

Lately, well, especially since the second semester of uni has begun, I've been feeling hopelessly down. A suffocating suppression upon my heart and my mind. Absolutely suffocating. I just can't breathe. How do I gasp for air???

And how do I place a smile onto my lips? How do I make my eyes twinkle? That fake laughter. That fake happy me. I feel as though I must put up a cheerful front so that those who surround me won't be affected by such a depressing mood.

I'm so tired.

Damn it.

Perhaps...Perhaps, it's just one of those moments where you feel as though the world is collapsing and you just gotta struggle and face it head on. I have to face it head on. But it's killing me.

It's stress.

Good gosh.

It's just stress. But stress can do so much.

If only I could just cry - just to break down. And then perhaps, everything will be better...cause a good cry always help.

But I can't.

I just can't.

Somebody save me.

Last Thursday, I baked a large EXTRA LARGE batch of choc-chip cupcakes for the gorgeous preschool children that I've been working with for the past month as a volunteer worker. It is so lovely to see such animated, lively children who adores you as much as you adore them - of course, keeping within the standards of the child protection policy. And what's even more lovely is seeing them grow and mature - taking every little bit of knowledge. And it just reminds you that one can do so much if you try.

Well, it's been a long time since I've baked. And it took me from 3:00PM to midnight to get all the baking and icing done. That excludes the time spent cleaning up. Gosh, thinking about me makes me feel tired. But having seen the children enjoying the cupcakes with such happy delight the following day pretty much makes the whole process priceless. ^-^

I wish I had remembered to buy those patty things to hold the cupcakes. But then again, I don't want three year olds choking on paper. lol.

And after baking, you just gotta test them out and play with your food regardless of whether your mum likes it or not...

And ooh, what's a cupcake without some icing...?? Still a cupcake I guess since I'm not a fan of icing. But good gosh, children love it and supposedly, yes I hate to brag but I must, I make really really good icing. =D

Are you craving for some sweetness? Some sweet cupcakes perhaps? ^-^

Lots of love, Cotton Candy.

Finally. It's stopped raining - The glorious sun had finally came out from behind the clouds today...
I've been seeing everyone in the northern hemisphere wearing such lovely summer dresses and I've been growing quite jealous. I do like Winter and yes, it's just the waking up in the morning that icks me about Winter ... but oh, summer dresses...So when I woke up to the warm brilliance of sunshine, well...that just gave me an excuse to wear a summer dress over a light sweater.

So , all I did today was just bask under the sunshine, absorbed in a wonderful and classic read. I had woken up early in the morning, enjoyed a refreshing jog around the block (since I've gained 4kg from binge eating during the exam due to stress ><" my my), ate breakfast of egg and toast and finally, in the afternoon, basked in the glorious sun...with tea and a time of re-read: my all time favourite book, 'Good Wives' written by Louisa M.Alcott.

Mum then bought out sliced hot dogs which I insisted be eaten from dainty dishes. Lovely. And then of course, I served ice-cream no less. Mmm...yummy yummy. I've been craving for ice cream all week long. Daddy bought it home yesterday night and now, it's in my tummy. Yayes to ice cream!! It makes me feel so sweet inside.

I hope you are feeling as sweet as I am inside. ^^

Lots of love, Cotton Candy.
