GZ's Wedding

The third cousin on my mum's side to get married, and I must say, they really are a stunning pair!
Zen is just so pretty, and she is really nice, so Gary Korkor is really just so blessed to have her!~

So, we got up all bright and early to go for the tea ceremony... It really is different when it's a Groom's side versus a Bride's side eh.

With the cousins who went that morning

#OOTD for that morning

Super nice, OMG! They had their photos taken in Bali!
With the groom, I honestly never seen him looking happier!
/Congrats Kor!/

Table with the cousins, Yes, just imagine how loud we must have had been, and how much more fun it is this way, as opposed to sitting by family, hehe

As what the host said, this must be the best champagne they've ever popped in their life. It can't be any truer, looking at the happiness that was on their faces that night
#OOTN for that night
And once again, congratulations to the happy couple, and may you have a nice little baby soon!

Ever since a young age, I've always had this love for make-up. Although, I must admit, not applying it on my own face, but for someone else. This was due to me being put into the make-up department over at my drama school from around the age of 13 to help out when there were performances.
It really was very amazing how a person face could be made up to be so many things and more with just a few strokes of a brush, and some colour here and there. The best part of all these was the fact that it was stage make-up. IT HAD TO BE DRAMATIC! I could go all out and play with the colours, extend the strokes way more than any normal person would, and the colours were all so intense. It was brilliant.
At first, though, I wasn't all to enthusiastic about being put into the make-up department, to be honest. But it soon grow into a love. Make-up is more than just an art. On stage, it does wonders to a character, bringing the character to life. While for a regular person, it beautifies and enhances one's look.
I could go on and on about how much I love make-up, but then I guess, you may end-up being bored of me. Honestly though, I haven't had much chances to work on stage make-up outside of the performances held by my drama school, and even then, they only have the big performances which requires it once every 2-3 years. It is my dream, to one day take on a course in professional make-up artistry, especially in that of stage make-up.
But for now, I shall focus on my studies, and work my way towards that goal.

值得吗? (Is This Worth-It?)

School is making me really cranky nowadays.
I cannot stress enough how cranky and angsty I am now.
But, earlier this evening, this one thing flashed through my mind, and I can't help but think, is this all worth it? As it is, I am going through a shorter and faster track as compared to my peers in local or overseas universities by going through the private education route which ensures that I complete my degree in 20 months (or 24 months max). But is this really worth going through?
If you look at it the way I am, yes, a degree may guarantee you a higher pay than a diploma holder, but at this time and era, does it really make a difference? Ok, so you may say, now having a degree is now a basic requirement, and to at least stand out, a Masters would be required. However, what's the use of all these papers? It's just a certification to said that you have studied so much, which, in my honest opinion, is a waste of time really.
To me, what employers are looking for is experience and character, aptitude and capabilities over being able to study. Because, after all that you have studied, if you have a bad attitude, can't work well, and is inexperienced, why would they want to pay you that amount of salary when they can just as well offer it to someone who knows very well what they are doing in the palms of their hand, and has the capabilities to do even better than you.
Sadly, the world right now is very superficial, and it is true, despite what the ministers seems to claim, that a degree is in fact necessary. And so, all I can do is bury myself in books and assignments, and tough it out for the remaining 13 months, to receive that piece of paper which would determine my future, a future that seems pretty bleak at the moment.

You don't have to read this, because I'm just here to let off some steam/whine.
Seriously, I think my period is coming, and coupled with the stress of the last few assignments which are all heavy weightage and exams in like 2 weeks which I haven't got time to study for in the least bit, YES, I can say that I AM beyond stressed.
Getting so ticked off at the littlest things recently, and I like just wanna slam some doors and kick some walls more than half the time. It doesn't help that I work at some kids playground where it's just noise, chaos and mess all the time.
Things are just not going as smoothly as I would like it to, and I can't seem to get a single word, much less a sentence out for my events report that's like 30% worth of the module! That's like A LOT, and it's due Friday noon, meaning I have like under 4 days to wrap it up.
This is only just the tip of the ice berg really. So under prepared for my exams it's not even funny. 3 papers, and the only one I'm confident in is an open book, so that really is just a giveaway anyway. But not all that much, since it's Law we're talking about. I could still make it for events, since I can bring cheat sheets in, so as long as I can find the time to prepare the cheat sheets, I should be safe. What I'm worried for though, is MRA. The teacher is really one useless fella, and I have no idea what is going on in class half the time, and even less of an idea what to study for the exam. So honestly, just a pass would be more than enough for me. I don't expect much of it, just let me pass.
Yes, and on a side note, I'm typing this and working on assignments at the same time IN THE DARK because someone was being inconsiderate as hell, and turned the lights off just because she needed to sleep. Seriously, and I still always wait up for her when she gets back late to let her blow dry her hair before I sleep. Talk about 好心没好报.

Life has been whizzing by in a blur for the month of November, and I honestly can't wait to wrap this month up. I've been having lotsa fun of weekends, as you may already know had you been following me on my instagram Instagram /twitter.

Each week has been going by like work/school/assignments/school/work/concert weekends for the last two weeks.This week onwards though, there's more assignments to be completing, and it's just ugh! I've also a cousin's wedding to attend this Saturday, and work on certain days, so I'm really not to sure how I'd cope with my assignments and stuff...

Can't wait for this month to be over, as I've already said, but once this month comes to a fullstop, it'd means EXAMS. And that's something I'm NOT PREPARED for entirely. Haven't gotten an inch of studying done, and I've three modules this semester, of which the 2 marketing mods are extremely content heavy. That and, I have absolutely ZERO idea what I should be studying for my tourism mod.

Life as a uni student in a private uni is really no joke if you don't have the discipline to sit yourself done and study. It's no longer like poly education where you get LOTS of help from lecturers and if you ask, maybe seniors even. And in comparison to regular unis where they have longer semesters for them to better absorb their lectures, and at least 1 lecture and 1 tutorial, in a private uni, it's all condensed, and mostly self-help. (Not trying to whine here, but just to breaking it down for you...)

Either way, this next 2 weeks will see me being really busy with my reports, and then the last minute mugging other wise known as 零时抱佛脚 will take place in the following 2 weeks, so this space would most probably turn barren.

Hence, bear with me for a little while here, and I'd be back as soon as I can with pictures from the concerts I've been too the last 2 weeks and also updates on the wedding and a few other stuff that I'd said I'd blog about but have yet to get around to doing so :(

OK, no pictures yet since I'm still too busy to get around editing them, BUT, I've uploaded the videos overnight, and it's all up on my youtube channel now, so go see!

It was an amazing night to say the least, and still quite upset that I didn't get to shake his hands cos the fans were swarming around. But well, what can I do...

Really loved how this concert featured so many more ballads than he usually perform at concerts, and how there were more than a few songs other than the really standard ones from the first few albums he released!

The concert opened with my favourite song <灵魂的共鸣> from the previous album <学不会>. Was really happy, and honestly, the arrangement is just so good!

Closely followed by 御龙三国志 and 木乃伊.

The second segment was just fantastic, seeing how some of the older songs like 不死之身 & 美人鱼 was sang. It was wonderful, and just everything I could ask for.

And of course one of the first few songs that caused me to fall in love with this talented homeboy back then, 8 years ago... 害怕

And here's one of my two favourite stage of the night, 小酒窝 with a verse and chorus of 关怀方式 added to it.

And, one of the special guest for the stage that night, JJ's very own elder brother, Eugene Lin with 飞机.
Albeit a little too shy, he was still really good, and had a really clean voice. I found it extremely adorable when he whipped out his phone at the end of the song to take a selca with JJ!

Now... this must have been the most exciting performance, where he came out decked in MJ's style, and performed to Billie Jean and then went right on to 就是我 all along the extension stage with water play and all. Of which, he even ripped of his muscle tank at the end of it, but promptly ran off stage within 10 seconds after he did so. Why JJ, WHY.

Although one thing I have gripes about is that, this really isn't a fresh stage, considering how he performed it the previous concert he held back 3-4 years ago!

But what really had the fans screaming though, was the fact that no one ever expected to see Stefanie Sun walk out from behind, to join voices with JJ in 她说. Still feeling so overly happy that she chose to give her return stage to the music industry after her long hiatus for her marriage and childbirth to JJ! The song was beautiful, and just so, so perfect!

The concert soon came to an end after that though, where he sang 2 more songs, and then followed by the encore stage. A little upset that the concert seemed shorter than his previous 3 in Singapore, but still really happy, and had a really wonderful time.
The encore had an atmosphere pretty much akin to a club, and the songs were rearranged to such preppy and upbeat tunes, it got the whole stadium up and jumping along.
Especially after he jumped off the extension stage hallway through the first encore song of 因你而在!
Yea, things got a little chaotic there, and that's why my video got chopped off too. HEHEHE.

Nontheless, really exhilarating to be part of the throng of fans running up and trying to cop a handshake from him, although I failed pretty miserably, with my short arms and being a little too far back and all...
But still, the night was peppered with songs that kept me on the edge of my seat, and screaming till my voice was hoarse! So forgive me, when you watch the videos and just kind of die a little from my piecing screams. I can't help myself. Yes, I had such a sore throat the next day, and to think, I had to work some more...

Anyway, if you wanna watch more videos, just hop on over to my youtube by clicking on any of the videos above.

I practically videoed the entire concert... Only didn't manage to get one song, and one video got chopped in half, so that's never gonna see the light again unless I figure out how to combine the two videos when I have more time again.

And, if you are ever interested to know the tracklist for the entire concert that night, feel free to tweet me up at Aubrey_TY.

To the bestfriend:

Haven't gotten any post up for a long time, but I've been swamped by assignments of which I've barely gotten over with, and also the fact that I've just started a part time job, which thus takes up almost all the spare time I've left and leaves me with nothing. 

Honestly, my social life is almost mon existent right now. 

Anyway, this post is dedicated to Tai!

Really really thankful to have found such a close and knitted friendship in you!
Although we haven't known each other for very long, it really is amazing how we've gotten so close to one another and came so far in our friendship. 

The many hours spent over the phone, the sporadic text messages just because we're both not texters :')

How we can talk about literally anything and EVERYTHING and not have an ounce of shame or embarrassment, well, mainly you...

I'm still extremely glad to have you as my friend. And let's keep it this way forever alright!

Because I wouldn't ever want to lose you as my friend!!!

Thanks for spending time with me tonight for supper! And paying for over half our cab fare. And for remembering that I had work today, and coming over to say hi! 

Seriously, love you to the moon and back! 

//on a side note, I'd try and clear my report due Friday as soon as I can, so that I can start editing some of the photos from the JJ Lin concert last night and do up a mini post on here/tumblr. Because there really isn't enough time for me to edit everything and upload it anytime soon, what with 3 reports being due over the next 3 weeks and exams the week after the final report is due.//
