A new necklace...

isn't it so cute and so dainty? I'm usually not a real jewellry buff but this really caught my eye and it's perfect since i love pastries! I got it at accesorize, and yes it was rather pricey considering it compared to street market stuff, but i just had to get it ! (Along with 2 other pieces) .... anyone want to share any pieces they got that they can't stop wearing???

Away again???

Sorry again for the lack of posts as I am eternally sick. Good news is I officially signed the papers and I'm free from "R" ;-P no hard feelings and we all remain good friends ;-P The bad thing is... right now I'm on an allergy diet to see what I'm allergic to as for the past week I've had chronic Urticaria (hives). I've had trouble breathing yesterday night and it's gotten really serious. I'm under medication now so things are looking good! A lot of ppl were wondering when I'm going back to Van , and that won't be for a while until my braces come off...which hopefully is boxing day. In the meantime I will go to Japan (Okinawa) maybe for the weekend and to Hong Kong to see friends and family. ! So if any of you guys are in HK Let's go LKF! and party it up!

Makeup updates:
currently Im using all Etude skincare products, esp the moistfull collagen stuff. *LUV*
I am also using La Roche-Posay tinted moisterizer as well....

I will try to do more reviews! be patient with me la!!

Majolica Majorca

The following pics are from Rouge Deluxe sorry my internet is too crappy to upload anything at the moment.

These are the items I got from the holiday MJ collection. Wow MJ is really hit or miss..the model looks so... trashy? for lack of a better word... reminds me of those jack the ripper prostitute in the white chapel area. LOL.. Sorry i haven't been known to be a good "describer"

ANYHOO I got the secret lingerie body cream. It's delicious smells kinda fruity and florally at the same time.It reminds me of "silver dusk" remember that shimmery powder that MAC has? That was my first Mac product ...wonder if they still have it.
Then I got the powder, it's very light and it has a slight shimmer to it. Will look forward in using these for the upcoming holiday season. Why do marketers always think that holiday collections must use shimmer? Hmm..why can't I wear shimmer in the summer? Well that's another post! But only 3 stars for these products as they aren't really something to write home about...

nights babies

Hi from my parents other home..

this is me in Kaohsiung I am well thanks!!! I'm gonna be staying at my parents country home here in Taipei (Y.M. mountain) and I'm gonna recouperate for a few days before I plan my trip back to Vancouver. Just wanted to clear up somethings... First and foremost I wanna thank my wonderful friends on YT and bogger and facebook..for all their kind words and encouragements. I am always in debt to my family and friends and without them I dunno how'd I survive. I often don't delve(SP?) (gosh can't spell) ? into my personal life and I decided to finally open up and answer some questions. Now is also a good time to ask me some things that u wanna know about me! So here goes I'm going to answer a few questions I get asked a lot of!

1)What's your food industry background? and how did you get into the CIA?
A: Well from the beginning...I knew food was my passion in life. When I was 4 years old I new there were 2 things I loved the most, making yummy stuff in the kitchen ( my mom bought me baby cooking toys) and my other love which is Michael Jackson. (Notice the present tense as those 2 things are still my loves... RIP MJ!)
So from an early age I was already making stuff in the kitchen, cooking and baking and doin' the thriller at the same time. So I suppose it's an innate love for cooking..and I think if u dream about it and think about it often then that's really your passion in life. Then during high school I took lots of culinary courses at school, then I started to intern at various hotels around my hometown. Then I went to university( UBC rulez) and took human nutrion. That was kinda my mistake, as I wasn't really interested in dietetics and more into making food. So I picked up my feet and headed to Le Cordon Bleu. I took a 2 year culinary course and graduated. But something was still unfulfilled at the moment, and I figured I really enjoy the pastry world a lot better. One of the reasons I switched was the kitchen was male dominated and I felt a lot of pressure, so then I went to Hawaii for more work experience. I worked there for a few months before I started the pastry program at CIA. It was a pain!! to apply for as you need a gazillion references, and interviews but luckily I passed, and I started in May 2004. 4 years later and a bachelors' degree after I started to work in the pastry world. So my advice is... hit the ground running, and accept that this industry is tough, what may seem wrong to you, sometimes is right to the chef and you just gotta nod your head to accept that the chef is always right. Be humble and be a hard worker, keep a keen eye of your surroundings and always think a few steps ahead of everyone else that's how you win in this industry. Work fast and work clean, that's how it works! I wish you all good luck for those pursuing this career as it's a lot of hard work and if you aren't ready to bust ur azz then don't bother continuing ;-P

2) Why do you love Nars so much?
Since I started when I was like 20? I was mezmerized by their wonderful colours and concepts and their philosophy that beauty is in everyone , just gotta enhance it. I love the artistic genius that is Francois Nars and I don't know if anyone is par with his transitional,magical skills with makeup. I heart Nars! and I'm sorry I will not sell my nars mirrors.... I might throw a contest but that's if I can find a way to protect the glass...anyhoo.....

3)Why can you speak English if you live in Taiwan?
Err...I dunno how to explain this as I've mentioned this before but for my new followers my Hometown is Vancouver, BC, Canada where English is official language including francais. My true hometown. Taiwan is just my heritage and where my parents and family are from, but I'll forever be Canadian! I am Canadian, although I'm also Taiwanese... (not PRC) hehe. I speak Mandarin, Taiwanese, most Cantonese, English and French ( err but a bit rusty) that's all ;-p

4) What's your skincare regime?
Ppl ask me this a lot because of the long hours I work and yet luckily I haven't broken out yet. ;-p my secret is... I take a crap load of vitamins, including iron and vit.B and I use a sheet mask every other day. It doesn't have to be an expensive one but I just slap a sheet mask on my face before I go to bed and take it of an hour later. The serum really absorbs into your skin and I find that it really "plumps up your dermis" Another thing I do is, one day a week I don't add anything to my skin. I just wash it and leave it for the whole day. The reason is you need to let your skin breath and let it produce it's natural oils, if you keep putting on product your skin becomes reliant on it and your skin will age faster that way. ;-p hope this helps.
FYI I'm using Embryolisse moisterizer, aqualable form essence, and triakyline and eye duo creams

Hopefully I answered some questions

Hey Babies

I'm back! I am feeling a bit weird and in shock now as it's been officially 2 months working for Robuchon and I finally quit yesterday. The working hours were killing me and my health is deteriorating quickly. I'm very upset as I'm leaving a job that I love and leaving 2 very talented Chefs (Chef Narita and CHef Kanai) and I hope one day I can persue this career path again. In the meantime I'm going to take a break from being in pastry and maybe i'll start my own business selling confectionary online. Please stay tuned for that, and now I can finally put on makeup! My love for makeup as returned and I'm excited I will be blogging more and making more videos and basically letting myself enjoy life! I know I know 2 months was nothing ..but i was exhausted physically. I wanna thank you all for all the great encouragements throughtout this hard time in my life and I will "add oil" for my future endeavours.

I apologize.

I want to say sorry to all my friends here! for my lack of posts. To give you a few details of my life now. Since Sept 29th of last month I've had 2 days off, and I work 15 hours per day. Sometimes 16 hours. So mind you, I haven't had time to post or make videos on youtube. Hope you understand. But what's really bothering me is I'm contemplating quitting my job because for the 1 month I've been at work, I've been at the hospital emergency room 3 times for exhaustion, liver failure, and dehydration. So I' don't know whether it's worth it or not, but I love what I do. In addition to the physical stress, there is a whole lotta mental stress too which is letting my hair fall out in clumps. I look so haggard lately I haven't dared taken a photo of myself. I just hope you all are well, tho! and life goes on... Sometimes ppl have to make sarifices, just to achieve their dreams. .....

wan an!!!!

Yogurt Art

ok maybe this is old news, and I went there several months ago but decided to post this. For those of you on a diet LIKE MOI... there is yogurt art, a frozen yogurt store behind Ming Yao dept store in east side Taipei yum!!!! although it tastes nothing like Pinkberry or Yogen Fruz. I guess Taiwanese ppl aren't so picky on flavour like me! haha

it's ok la but here are the pics!

Gosh Why can't I weight what I used to 10 years ago? UGH... so what's for dinner today? An Apple and a piece of TOFU. It's somewhat healthy haha..but let's see how far I go with this diet. Hope to lose 10# this month...

cheer me on!

Alert! Miracle product...

a 3 in 1 product! and it's the Garnier Aqua Defense gel essence. It can be used as a serum under your moisterizer , a gel creme, or as a hydrating mask. It has a very light fruity green apple scent, and it's a total DUPE for the H20 face oasis. I love love love this as it's around 350NT dollars. Super cheap right? and it's so good. I keep it in the fridge and slather it on before I go to bed. It has fruit enzymes in it too so it exfoliates the skin. Overall 2 thumbs up for Caffy and I can't believe I didn't know about this sooner.!!


BTW this is super easily absorbed into the skin!

Dragon Lady nails...

When I went to Etude House looking for some new nail colours I passed by their new dear darling bling bling nails.. and I got the red one.. MISTAKE..i feel like such a dragon lady. I feel like with these nails I don't feel sophisticated but I feel like I should be wearing a Chi-pao and have my hair in a bun held by chopsticks. Ugh! I'm going back to Etude house to get some more pastel fun shades.. I have my eye on this mint aqua colour.

so this red a thumbs down for Caffy..maybe I'll give it to someone hmmm.....

I love Etude House

because it's so cheap and the stuff so great! I also love that they give out awesome huge samples!... Today I bought the blackhead off oil EX, the o2 magic foaming cleanser (love it), the AC Clinic Pink Powder Spot set, 2 polishes, one in a deep dark Aubergine, and a sparkling Ruby also the prettiest pearlized purple eyeliner and a gorgeous pastel pink lipstick. They gave me crap tons of samples and a brush roll and makeup bag. OMG overwhelmed. I will do a haul video soon because I shall get more nars stuff tommorow.... Love yas!!!

Creamy Chicken Gravy and BISCUITS!!!

I dunno what's wrong with me! I am loving these cooking tutorials. So here's my next challenge today. Easy creamy chicken and stove top buttery biscuits. I also made 2 videos about it on my youtube channel! Feel free to comment, and give me some opinions, advice, because I rarely do cooking demos. For me cooking is work, baking is work, and doing videos about it makes me feel like I'm working, but homestyle cooking relaxes me, so no you won't find me doing Michelin star work..but just simple home cooking. enough of me babbling! here are the pics! please give me some feedback. If you want me to stop making these type of videos let me know. !!

bisous! C

hi Babies

So.... I was very nervous so I took my mind off studying and practicing and decided to watch CRIMINAL MINDS, my favourite TV show. I LOVE the premise of this series and I know im not really "girlie" and into shows like Gossip Girl and True Blood, but I am loving this. This is probably my fantasy of being a criminal profiler or a forensic scientist. SIGH..another thing about the show is that fact that I have a major crush on Matthew Gray Gubler.

yeap there he is mah future hubby... and okay Shemar Moore aint to shabby either!

tee hee... other then that.. I'm lemming to buy more cosmetics. BUT i'm trying to save up to go to Hong Kong to see my family. >.< I really want to get Gosh Lip Jam in 101 and i can't find it ANYWHERE.... I want to find someone who wants to swap with me... IM going to run out soon and I NEED this so bad. haha
