That's where I want to go and seek my adventure from. I don't care if what I have in mind does not match the reality. I just want to be there, set my foot there to see the place for myself.

This strong connection that I feel has been suppressed for quite long.
I will go and be there, the moment I'm done with my internship (Feb 2013). 

There's so much to do there, for the society and for the children.

I am no frequent complainer who is so free to write in complaint letters to company just to complain about tiny weeny shit. If it's bearable, I'll let it go. The only time I've complained besides for Shunji Matsuo, was the case where I got chided by a taxi driver and that got me real mad.

Other than that, I always try to brush it off. Because as much as I want them to improve their services, I don't want to blow up the matter as well. However, on the thought of letting the matter slip, you'd think about how in future there might be repetition of such cases just because the organization/company is not aware of the issue and can't rectify it.

So, in Shunji Matsuo's case, I was very determined to submit the complaint letter which in return, I didn't even get a reply. Bravo efficiency. Honestly, it's really really rude to not reply your consumer. If you don't want feedback from your consumers, don't put up a feedback box yeah. It's ironic, misleading and redundant.

Below is the letter crafted with the help of Shamo :-)
She always knows how to put my thoughts together when I'm all flustered and shit.

I wish to express my dissatisfaction with the results and service rendered at your 313 outlet on 16 October 2012. Being a first-timer, I walked in after seven and I chose the following package: Cut + Digital Perm + Sherya Treatment + Additional Treatment (which is supposed to be beneficial). The total cost = $433 (inclusive GST) 
 I had trusted my hair in the capabilities of your stylist under these empty promises:
  1. My hairdo to resemble that of the picture I had shown
  2. Improved quality of hair; softer and smoother
On the contrary, it is now much dryer than before, stiff looking, and unhealthy despite all the treatments. Having been assured and not notified of the possible discrepancies of the effects of your services and products, I am rather peeved and displeased by the false representation of outcomes. Your website seems to be the start point of your false advertising which was then followed by the services rendered at the outlet; 
  “The salon also offers a wide variety of Head Spa treatments, each with unique properties designed to sooth and treat individual scalp conditions so that customers not only leave the salon looking great, but also relaxed and rejuvenated with healthier hair. 
 Moreover, the changes that were made were barely minimal and counter productive which is disputed to the amount of money I had paid, $433; an amount that many would say was obscene on such an ineffectual and deficient service. 
 I was disgruntled by the time that it took for the entire process. I was only done at 0015hrs, which would mean that I had spent 4 hours and 30 minutes for a completely dissatisfactory service. Had I been preempted about the duration, I would not have minded. However, empty promises and false assertions seem to be a repetitive characteristic in your branding for I was assured that everything would be done slightly after 2200hrs, which is not the case. 
 It is honestly disappointing to have encountered such displeasing experience, which is in such stark contrast to the rave reviews (Tigerlily’s and some other blogs) that had been my incentive to patronize Shunji Matsuo. All of this depicts a clear picture of distorted representation of your branding for their visits by these bloggers or media personalities were exceptional for it was a loaded incentive while I seem to feel insignificant like just another customer. 
 Despite my obvious dissatisfaction with the results of my hair, there was nothing wrong with the service of my hairstylist, Nich. In fact, she even offered me hot Milo because she knew I had not had my dinner. Her customer service ethics may have well been the only redeeming quality of my overall Shunji Matsuo experience. 

Guys, I feel stupid for spending such absurd amount for my hair. Don't even asked how I even succumbed to it at first. I have absolutely no idea.

Ok, but whatever. Life, I gotta move on.

Tu Me Manques

I woke up at Huisze's house today, missing my boyfriend.
Slightly, would be a lie.

As much as I look forward to Halloween, it sucks that October is gonna come to an end.
Which means, my boyfriend would have to be in the army for about 2 weeks plus.

Started planning my 21st birthday with my girls ytd, and it hit me that my boyfriend won't be there.
It sucks, but I just have to deal with it. 

Went to Adler Hostel yesterday to fool around again, as we plan for the birthday.
Cannot stress how comfortable the comforter is.
At the hostel I lived in, it's not even a comforter, it's just blanket/cloth?
Haha, yeah. Guests over at Adler's are so lucky.


And then, we went for Korean BBQ near Adler Hostel.
It's reallllly really good. It reminds me of what I had in Korea
and makes me wanna go back to Korea.

Tempting huh? Haha.

Okay, I should get going and get started with my work. 

Tomorrow's Monday. Geez.

Friday, October 12, 2012


I just realized my playlist disappeared!
And no one said anything about it.
Probably because y'all don't pay attention and pause it whenever y'all enter my blog right?
I knew it!!

Oh well. Too lazy to embed one for now.
Let's keep it this way then.


October is gonna be interesting!!!
I've always been in love with October, November and December
cause the line-up of of events are exceptionally exciting.

October - My mom's birthday, and not forgetting Halloween (my fave time of the year!!!!)
November - Getting iPhone 5, Bestfriend's 19th and yes, my 21st (HEHE!!!!)
December - Christmas (yay, presents!!!) and lastly, New Year's Eve

I really can't wait to welcome all these amazing events, let loose and have some awesome fun!
This year seems to fly by real fast. And, the thing they say about world ending sounds funny now cause it doesn't seem like it's gonna happen at all. If it doesn't, it's gonna be quite embarrassing for those who blew up the matter since they were so confident about it.

But, who knows right? We'll see.

Despite all the exciting upcoming events, I hate to announce that my boyfriend will be serving the National Service starting from 1 November. So basically, he's gonna miss Halloween as well as my birthday. I am not gonna make this sound miserable than it already is, cause we both have been planning for Halloween and now we're just sad kiddos.

Well, it's okay! We have next year, and next next year, and next next next year... :-)
No worries, and Christmas will be supeeeeer fun since it's gonna our first Christmas tgt!!!!!

I love you so much, Jeremy.
And I am real proud that you're serious about your work.

Okay, event updates (such sudden transition, I know right):

1. Mom's Birthday

Initial plan: Order flowers online to be delivered to mom's workplace + family dinner

The night before, she told me she took a day off and decided to head down to Malaysia in the morning and would only be back in evening. So, instead of sending the flowers to her workplace and have the card signed off with "Secret Admirer", it was delivered home and signed off with my name.

How weird would it be if the flowers were delivered to home and signed off by 'Secret Admirer'?!?!
My mom would freakkkk!! "This secret admirer is a stalker!" and be real paranoid. Hahaha.
Nonetheless, she was really happy to receive the flowers cause she said she didn't receive any from suitors this year. It's okay momma, you still have me hehe.

Then, I brought my family out for dinner! Nothing fancy, just somewhere nearby for the 7 of us.
Had Chinese food to accommodate my granny's taste preference.

This is actually the first time I did something so huge (in my opinion) for my mom.
Flowers + dinner. Usually it's just like any other normal day except I'd drop her a text, or maybe prepare a card, or maybe give her a hug or a kiss, get her a cake and probably that's all.

I had never forked out money to do anything more than my comfort zone.
This year, I realized it's no longer about money. We can always earn them back.
And since, I'm getting $$$ from my internship now, it's only right to treat my mom right.
The money I spent on this birthday is nothing to be compared to what she'd spent in 20 years.

Why be calculative. So yeah.

I feel so grown up.

2. Adler Hostel

Went to Adler Hostel to chill. It's a really nice and chill place.
I strongly recommend Adler Hostel if you've friends from overseas who's looking for a place.
I've been to hostels before. In Korea, I stayed in hostel too.
And Adler's, is really different. 

So y'all can go check it out when y'all are free!!! :-)

Have you seen my ad for Adler Hostel?

Please note this not advertorial etc for Adler Hostel.
And, I'm not doing this because he's my friend or because I'm the cover girl
but because even I myself, would love to stay there too!!!
No kid. That's why I'm sharing this.

Sat there for half of Saturday, mad focus on the Monthly Log that I've to complete
for my lecturer to keep track of my internship progress.
While my boyfriend waited (patiently?) for me.

And then Sham came over to seek help for her school assignment
and turned the little space into a party place! Haha.

We had to film a party scene, so why not just make use
of the deco and take more photos instead of just filming? Keke.

Okay, that's all.
Hope your week's been better and waaaaaay exciting than mine!

I don't usually take picture of my food. 
And I happened to take one on 5th October, so I guess that picture should conclude this lame challenge entry so that I can move on!!!

Servings for 2:
2 packs of chicken rice + egg tarts + 'char sao soh'(?) + xiao long bao + oyster omelette

Super Late Breakfast + Late Lunch + Early Dinner

Tempting, huh?



If I could let go of everything and leave,
Just to venture out and achieve greater things on my own,
I would.

I'm bound by the things I dear. Anxiety. Survival. 
And by things, it includes you.

So when that day comes, when I finally dare to soar,
Do fear for I no longer have qualms about leaving things behind
and live a life of my own.

With no expectations from people for me to please.
