Queen of Spades [Outfit Post]

I really like the idea of doing outfit posts these days! It is so fun to go to one place and shoot a set of photos and compile them into a blog post!


I got this shirt from eBay last month (link is here and I got a size M for myself). I practically waited impatiently for it to come into my mail every single day since I made my payment HAHA! Since the day I got this shirt, I told myself that I am definitely making an outfit post for it!


It has been quite some time since I last did my gothic/rocker look. I used to be judged very badly by some "friends" for dressing up like a badass (yes, I had a signature streak of blue hair back then). After I got told off a lot by those KIA people, I tried to tame myself down a bit. 

However, once in a while I will have the tendency to dress like a badass bitch for fun because I realized that I should actually do more shit before I am forced to wear the fake social mask after I leave school. 



To add more gothic elements to this outfit, I paired it with my gold studded boots that I got from Novo 2 years ago.


Since the front of the shirt is rather plain, I put over a chain necklace which I found in my collection (but I had never worn it before). Since the necklace has a few layers, I think it really spiced up the outfit.





For the other accessories, I just threw on some studded bangles and a Rolling Stone knuckle ring that I got from eBay a few years ago.





For this look, I drew on a slightly heavier and longer cat eye than usual. I even lined my waterline with black eyeliner.



And there you go....bad Gizibe on the move!











Oh and before I forget...A bold red lip is a must!




One thing I want to say....especially for girls...don't effing go around passing your judgment on other people - be it their accessories, makeup, fashion or whatsoever! Not everyone can dress up like CL and you should be the one who should be ashamed of not being able to rock the gothic look!

AND for those who always feel like trying a new look, don't even hesitate! Just do it - life is too short to not have fun and your youth is even shorter to not do shit stuffs! 





Now the Queen says it all!!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 25 - Rilakkuma Version

I am finally back, hopefully with more determination to update my blog more often from now onwards :p Life has been stressful and refreshing for me at the same time for some reasons that I cannot disclose right now. Regardless of the coming exams next week, I am enjoying it right now. 

Anyway, let's just hop straight into the point.

Today I am introducing my polaroid camera which I bought from walkinjapan_com last year. You can contact her to purchase ANYTHING from Japan! I got her to send this all over from Japan because even including the postage fees, it was still much cheaper than the market price :)

 I had always wanted a polaroid camera ever since I saw the Instax Mini 8 because I was so drawn to its pastel blue one. However, little did I know, I would end up buying the Instax Mini 25 rather than the Mini 8 because:

~Mini 8 is much bulkier than the Mini 25 (and I don't like carrying big things in my bag)
~Mini 25 has better functions than Mini 8 (the trade off is definitely the price) 
~Mini 25 comes with a selfie mirror 

You can click here to compare the specs of the mainstream Instax models before getting one for yourself ^^



And this is how it looks like...

I know that the word "cute" doesn't resemble me at all, but rather than purchasing the boring plain blue and pink Instax Mini 25, this looks way cuter! Afterall, polaroid camera is meant to be cute, right? :3 


Originally I thought it was a foolish thing to get a polaroid camera because the films are quite pricey, but after I went to B1A4's concert where they ran around the concert hall taking selfies using polaroid cameras with the fans, I went irrational. At that point, I thought "It would be stupid holding a polaroid camera when I am 30 years old, since I'm only 20, get one and play around when I still have my youth!"

Plus, the best part of a polaroid camera is that the photo taken with it will be the one and only photo in the entire world. It's so special and most importantly it gets developed on the post after 1 or 2 minutes after the shot!



It comes with a close up lens as well which I have never used before so I can't really justify how well it works. Just that I never thought of taking close-up shots with a polaroid camera.




Built in selfie mirror is absolutely a necessity!




L (Lighten) and D (Darken) buttons that allow you to adjust the intensity of colours to make the photo brighter or darker than default.




There is a screen to show you how many films are left in the camera. The most films this camera can carry is only 10 pieces.




I carry my polaroid around in this little pencil case with a marker pen. You really don't have to purchase those marker pens that are specially designed for polaroid films because they are expensive. Just get a permanent marker pen that you can write on CDs and you are good to go!


I like to get my friends to write the dates or leave their signatures and some random drawings/words on the photo because it gives a very personal touch to this one and only photo!

However, in my opinion, this Mini Instax 25 is only good for taking photos of humans but not little objects. I have tried a few times and destroyed a few films *sobs* trying to snap photos of my necklace, the lavender that I got from my boyfriend....They just don't look good at all!

So I would advise you to not waste your films trying to take photos of little things up-close. If any of you have any idea on producing good close-up shots, please tell me those tips and tricks!! PLEASE~~~


I am now determined to collect more photos of my loved ones with my polaroid camera. I don't usually bring around my polaroid camera to take photos with random people or hi-bye friends. So, if I do use my polaroid camera with you that means you are important for me - important enough for me to spend so much on the film for you!! HAHA!

Rushing out to school for my group assignment discussion. Till the next post! Love you all~

Realization

I have finally come to realization that I am constantly doing bullshit unproductive craps in life. Yet, shamelessly, I thought they ought to be something that I shall be proud of.

Now, I realize how scarily ignorant can I be?

I was contented and proud of the insignificant achievements that I've made in life. Not sure whether they are even qualified to be called as achievements at all now?!?!

Until very recently, I know that I should definitely stop this crazy lifestyle because it ain't going to bring me any good ever.

I am the type of person who seem to know a little bit of this and a little bit of that but I am never good in any thing at all. However, I used to think that I know so much.

Now, life lesson learnt: the biggest idiot isn't the one who doesn't know things, it's the one who thinks he/she knows everything.

I am in year 3 - my final year and I have approximately 9 months (or less) till my graduation and get myself into the workforce. Being over 21 years old and a senior to all the freshmen, I discovered that I am not a good example. I fail to be a role model, big time - not even for my little cousins.

So right now, I am trying to bring everything back on track.

I changed some of my habits as well just to make myself relatively productive than I was previously. Not sure whether all these changes are too late but I don't think I should just sit and let this bad habits swallow me entirely.

Also, I am trying to expose myself to more things and more people - in short, to discover more.


~I am attempting to get out of my comfort zone to attend events that I had never intended in participating at all.

~I am trying to develop the habit of reading business and finance news every day, even it's only 1 article.

~I am doing yoga at least 30 minutes every day.

~I do my tutorial homework before going to school. And even I skip school, I will catch up with every single lecture recording attentively.

~I removed all those K-Pop and MJ related things from my phone and pencil case. Though I did have the intention to remove all those K-Pop decorations in my room as well but I don't think I can get used to an empty room, so before I could come up with any other decorative ideas, I'll just let them be where they are right now.

~I learnt that I shall always remember that no matter how hard life gets, I should keep on going for the sake of my family members - that's why I start to carry a polaroid of them where ever I go.

~I finally cut down the time that I spend on scrolling social medias


There are so insanely many things that I want to do right now because I know that it's all now or never. Nevertheless, another stress that I am facing right now is....catching up...afterall, the toughest thing about falling behind is definitely catching up.

I am regretting big time for my all-time ignorance but I am also thankful that I realized all of this before I even graduated from University.

As I still have 9 more months to go, I am going to make this a productive and fruitful year. Live my university life to the very fullest, doing things that I can't do anymore after graduation, learn as many new things as possible.

All in all, I suppose I really need to get far away from my own comfort zone.

As what they say, "comfort is for the dead". If you constantly seek comfort, then why not just lay down like a corpse comfortably in the coffin.

Hope I am not too late in turning things around.

#OOTD for School 100315

My brain had been clouded with super negative and emotional thoughts these days because I keep on facing some problems which I can't solve them as fast as they mushroom...So yeah, had been complaining a lot and ranting a lot and all I wanted to do is to watch happy videos and do nothing. 


However, yesterday my housemate cheered me up by clipping a really sweet note for me on my corkboard and cooking a big bowl of my favourite Shin Ramen for me as dinner while we watched my eye candy Lee Hyunwoo on TV! In addition to that, my guitar teacher Alex also told me that because he wants me to continue having a huge passion for music that's why he's willing to sponsor a super expensive editing software! OMG! So touched! ♥ 

It was at that point I realized that I canNOT sit there and feeling all gloomy because I still have a lot of people who love me! That's why I am finally getting my ass up and having some things done.


Today despite having lots of classes, I decided to do a #ootd blog post since I hadn't been doing much on my blog these days.  

Photo credits to my beloved housemate for taking these photos for me during lunch time and after school.

We took these photos at Melbourne University's System Garden & Lincoln Square. It's kinda insane to be taking photos in the school compound when there were so many people around!

These days the weather is really nice. Unlike the previous summers, this summer is quite windy and without a scorching hot sun which is why I care to dress up for school, even though it's just a simple outfit.



What I am wearing:
Checkered shirt from Melbourne Centre for $5
Blue tank top inside $3
and a pair of flowery shorts that my mom got for me from Bangkok
Bart Simpsons Converse $60
Body Glove backpack that I bought in Malaysia for RM36 (approx $12)


메롱~~~~~ Excuse my bare face but I don't have the energy to put makeup to school at all!





I had a blood test last year and the doctor said I am lacking Vitamin D so now I'm trying to go outdoors more often than usual! And here I am sitting on grass!



Should I do a "What's In My School Bag" blog post? HAHA! Because apparently these aren't the only things I bring to school.

PS: I have way too many blue colour things! :p #blueforever




Ending this blog post with a few shots of my school's system garden! I bought sushi and went there to savour it while sitting on the grass HEHE!

Yeah, I am now back on track. Life still goes on~ And I'll make it better!


Thanks to this song for cheering me up whenever I'm down. I painstakingly edited it to 1 minute long so that I can wake up smiling every morning :3

Made In Penang Interactive Museum 美因槟廊

If you have been to Korea or Japan, you could've heard of something called the trick-eyed 3D art museum.


Ever since I stumbled upon the trick-eye museum of Korea in my favourite Korean drama "Heartstrings" when I was 17 (5 years ago), I had ALWAYS wanted to visit a place like this! [image taken from Google]


It looks so fun and interesting. The artists who created these masterpieces have my respect *bows 90 degrees*

Then one day, it happened out of a sudden. My hometown, Penang (in Malaysia) has its very own 3D trickeye museum called Made In Penang Interactive Museum 美因槟廊. Can you possibly imagine how excited I was!!!

So when I was back from Melbourne last year (another super delayed blogpost), I urged my best friends to bring me there.

I went on a heritage trip with my primary schoolmates who have been really good friends with me since we were 8 or 9 years old. Definitely have to go there with friends who you can act all crazy without taking care of your self-image. Fun comes first~ I didn't even bother to put on my double-eyelid stickers when I went out with them, and of course that means no makeup AND I couldn't be bothered to edit any photos at all xD This is the best thing about going out with friends who you grew up together with <3

In addition to our renown street art, this Interactive Museum of Penang is a new must-go place that you shouldn't have missed ^^ 



The fun begins at the entrance before you even purchase your tickets.

Entrance fees are divided into a few categories:
Tourists without MyCard: RM30
Adult Malaysians: RM15
Malaysian Kids / Students: RM10

Thank goodness we were smart enough to prepare all our student cards before embarking on our Penang heritage trip so we only paid RM10 each!

Trust me it is totally worth the money!

Once we purchased the tickets, we went right in. PS: Don't throw away the tickets, they have their special use which I will disclose later hehe!







Miniatures which reflect the traditional life of Penangites.


The miniature of the waterfront of Georgetown in the olden days. The white building is now the house of this Interactive Museum.

I used to spend 14 years in British Council which was located in this building as well before it moved.




Close-up shots.

This waterfront is now Penang's jetty which is a very busy area with lots of people and cars.




And then we walked up to these TV looking screens which made you into this~~ HAHA



But you need to adjust yourself to get the right angle of your "newly painted face" It's all about the angles and lots of shifting.

 
And remember that I told you not to lose your tickets?

Bring your ticket buds up to the screen and you will be surprised with these magic that is about to happen in your hand xD Again, it is about the angles~



Now...The real fun begins!! Brace yourself for a bunch of craziness and tonnes of photos!

Thank goodness we went there during the weekdays and it was pretty late in the afternoon. We only had 1.5 hours before the museum closed so we rushed through everything very quickly for the 1st round and then went back to the paintings again to retake our photos after we had gone through the whole place.

There weren't a lot of people. Perhaps another 2 or 3 groups of people and the whole place was pretty much OURS! HAHA! We kept on laughing and running around and screaming as if we were back to our primary school times. The whole place was filled with our noises. We were downright those "uncontrollable kids" or "brats" who you would have cursed if you were there!
 




 
Bring the battle on!



I inherited this skill from my grandpa!

 

Prankster mode ON!



Miley Cyrus actually copied my friend!

(PS: this post is a super delayed one and the rest is self-explanatory)






Perhaps this is what you called "deep in the friendzone"?! HAHA
















This is the face that you will definitely NOT see on my Instagram LOL












Running away from the ghosts!


But the truth is...I'm a ghost myself. 

A ghost trying to scare another ghost =="







This is a very amazing piece of artwork. My favourite art among everything in the museum.

This is the BABA NYONYA culture that is only in Malaysia. 

Suddenly I feel proud of my country as I typed the sentence above xP


Get your asses at the right angle and you will be able to have some fun with it. Here we are with our slave named Chin Yee! 

Just kidding, Chin Yee is one of my best girl friends EVER!


Ghost that is in the mirror


I'm coming to get you!


This photo never fails to make me smile! I love the fact that no matter how old we are we are still as childish as ever, and yes crazy!


 A whole cage of angry birds!
 

Thanks to Chin Yee's awesome and mindblowing photography skill which you can't find in every dynasty...I ended up like this!


FYI, that fan is real. Not an art. Just that I have no idea what this guy is doing.

Literally "chiak hong". It means EAT WIND in the Hokkien literally, but it means going on a vacation.


Do not let go an opportunity to take a selfie when you see a big ass mirror


The last photo before we headed downstairs to leave.




Here we ended our virgin trip to the Penang's Interactive Museum.

I love looking at these fun photos that we took. They make me so happy and grateful to have these friends who have accompanied me throughout these years. Our friendship is still counting although we are all scattered around the world right now.

Love them to bits and pieces xoxo
