in awe

AMIT concert last night was in one word, AWESOME!
seriously no words can coherently describe my love for amei. hahahahahaha. she's just amazing and the energy she single-handedly brings to the arena is nothing short of incredible. how does a person manage to sing and perform like that for three hours straight? wish i had even a quarter of her stage presence and vocal prowness! but i am really so inspired by her live performance. she is amazingggggggggg i repeat again.


WIW..

bonitochico pleated chiffon dress in white

uughh my hair is a mess. super wavy and all over the place. should i straighten it before CNY?! on a side tangent, i got my hands on one of essential's hair mask that they've been marketing like mad online, hope it's as good as advertised! it's sitting in my hair now as i'm typing this.


see my uber messy hair. and ah i am like so uglys in pictures non-taken by myself it's all about anglessss.



YZ and i :)





we arrived pretty early at the indoor stadium, even after strolling to KLP for yoguru, when we were seated about 7.45pm, the place was still pretty empty and people were strolling in.


this time round the stage was much further away from the audience, as compared to the previous amei concert i attended two years ago when the stage was in the middle of the stadium and i'd bought cat1seats but nevertheless. 



the lights dimmed and everyone started screaaaaaaaming for amei!





blur picture because it was so dark the camera couldnt auto focus! :( i got smart and manual focused later on haha.

i'll try not to bore you all with too many pictures of the concert but it was really fantastic, the lighting effects and all :D love concerts hahaha atmosphere!!!! i didnt buy any light sticks or glow sticks though so we just sat and watched other people wave theirs. 




amei appeared and sang the tribal chant from her AMIT album as the opening number! her powerful voice really filled the entire stadium. I LOVE HER.











there were two huge screens on the side of the stage for those of us sitting too far away from the stage to see much :/





it was very much a rock concert for the most part, with a few segments of amei's more classic slow hits, but in the middle the music stopped for abit, and then a violinist walked out! damn hawt one too!






followed by a whole troop of violinists. and they looked like they were in nunnery wear lol. 










and then guess who came out and did an opera solo accompanied by the violinists. 


she totally impressed the entire crowd! you can hear YZ's very awestruck "wah...." at the end... haha!

i didn't manage to record alot of video due to the limited space on my memory card :( only this opera solo segment and half of another slow song she sang!










and here's the other half a song i recorded. song title is 你好不好 and she sounded fantastic! even better live than in her studio recordings, which is an incredibly hard thing to achieve!


crazy good right. i'm so in awe and inspired by her whenever i watch her live. hopefully i can channel abit of amei the next time i go on stage. she's just amazing :)

and finally got the hair mask off my hair! in the midst of drying now. so here's a few pictures of the product:


i got the orange one which is ultra honey & shea butter rich premier instead of the light airy nuance one because YZ said that one would probably make my hair curl even more since my hair is very fine already haha.



instructions on back says to apply appropriate amount evenly on hair after shampooing and squeezing out excess water. leave on for 5 mins. i left it on for around 15 mins or longer i think, with my hair wrapped in a towel.



the texture is not as soft and creamy as some other hair masks i've tried, it's abit more solid and thick. 

verdict:
my hair feels really soft and manageable now, but have to see if the effects lasts over the next few days! the rich premier does weigh my hair down abit though so it isnt so fly-away! smells nice too! anyway the tub only costs about 9.90 (i bought it from sheng siong!) which is pretty cheap so i think it's worth a try :) dont know if the other one will work better on my hair though. 

ok am heading out d. aaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i hate the weather!

resortworld! and other random bits.

the weather has been terrible lately! so extra sunny and hot that i feel i'm getting a shade darker everyday ): it's horrid! i will never become fair at the rate the sun's burning down. boohoooo. but regardless, we decided to brave the sun one fine morning in search of the victoria's secrets store at resortworld!

the WIW

  bandage dress paired with 's tassel sling bag!

i love the bandage dress because it's so easy to slip on and accessorise for a day out! today's combination is with the dotty perks necklace (WHICH BROKE. GRRR. which is why it's so short because i havent fixed the chain yet!!!) and the grey sling bag which is my new love. along with gold flats not pictured! <3



so, first stop of the day: breakfast for hungry people
 



 


actually, i dont think the mee siam was that great. but i was hungryyyy so i made do! as for the toast i prefer Ya Kun's browned crispy kaya toast anyday! still, needed energy to brave the hot sun so i ate up my mee siam anyway. blah.



oh and to anyone planning to visit resortworld there is a direct shuttle bus but since i'm damn suaku and never been on the new monorail nor visited sentosa in donkey years i forced my friends to take the monorail with me! you still have to take a bus after alighting the monorail to get to RW.


entrance for monorail station! happps.


alot of kids around huh. speaking of which i saw these three uber petite 13 or 14 year old girls on the bus the other day, and they were EYELINED, MANICURED, with curled hair and fashionable clothes, carrying iphones!!! seriously. i feel so obselete now. 


super touristy and happy! wheeeeeeee! but it was so damn freaking hot. DAMMIT. i hate the sun i just hate being dark.


along the journey...






introducing my two travel companions for the day






 
mr merlion, and finally at resortworlddddddd!


 


inside, it's reaaaally posh and high-class looking. very empty though!

uhhhh. art.

 
posh mirrors all around and very elaborate furbishings and lighting!


and, the entrance to the casino is really weird -_- it has all this luminous lighting and plays epic music... feels like i'm entering some disneyland or something.






spot us!

 
nola we didnt enter the casino. it's down 2 flights of escalators and we stopped after the 1st flight. you need to pay a hundred bucks entrance fee to enter the casino i think.


what we really went to RS for:

first VS store in singapore!

but to be frank it was quite a disappointment. they carry quite a limited variety of goods and most of them are pretty expensive ): still an interesting visit though. but they dont carry any bras at all!!! only a selection of undies and sleepwear + body/makeup products + accessories.



colorfulcolorful!



 


and for some reason all the undies on sale are like every color but the usual nude/black/white undies that i was looking for?!

 
but they really know how to brand. with all the haawwt VS angels.





i left empty-handed, was uber lemming to get the ultimate makeup kit that was $50 SGD but knowing me i'd probably not fully utilize it and i have a whole drawer of make up already! what is it with girls and cosmetics. so obsessive, this hobby! Su and Farah both bought a little something though. butttt if you wanna go for the sake of buying stuff, i say skip it, going online is probably a better bet especially during the online sales! w00ts. money saved.

and Su had to leave so Farah and i had lunch at thai express. 

spicy minced chicken with basil rice


i had tomyam soup and shared Farah's rice! uber shiok. making me hungryyyy in the middle of the night. am so craving for twister fries wtffff. 

aaand that was the end of our shortlived excursion, was surprisingly tired already because i woke up at 8am! which is bloody early when i slept at like... 2 ish or something omgg i am turning into such a... bed potato. SHIT. it scares me that January is almost over already and i am still feeling so 2009. i suddenly feel like i'm going to grow old before i actually even do anything worthwhile with my life.

more pictures of the new bag from  

love it that you can unzip the bottom to make more room inside the bag! it even fits my very fat camera! perfect for my usual day out. i nearly never travel light because i need at least these
1. wallet (or wristlet with essentials)
2. my BB
3. camera!!!!!
4. keys
happily my new bag allows me to fit all these and more :D :D :D such a steal for only $26 mailed mwahahaha. 


other mailbox goodies i got this week:

's self-manufactured mesh dress! am loving the black X gold combi because it's so classy. the ruched mesh helps to hide the tummy too! :D i took size M but it's a tad loose for me at the bust and waist. thinking of altering it to fit me better and make it the perfect dinner dress!



's braided chiffon frock in jade, the colour is mad lovely and the chiffon is shimmery and pretty! the cutting is uber flattering too buttt got armpit fats ): sad sad.



pleated chiffon dress that both  and  carries, got it in size M and lilac from TTR in the end because my cyan one from SLH was defected and i exchanged it for the above bag! ): but i looove the bag to pieces so it's all good :D


comes with straps as well mmmm it looks better without but i'm worried the top will flap open!

collected my AMIT concert tickets today, and i am ALL SET to scream my lungs out at her concert Friday night! am SO looking forward to it. can't wait! excitedzzzz ttm!
