Thinking of what to share today, and I thought…you know how people have #monthlyfavs on #dayrebeauty?
I wanted to share my #lifetimefavs of random products I've either just started using or have been using forever. 😒😂
It's gonna be a ridiculously random and frivous post (don't want to keep posting about heavy stuff even tho that's my writing specialty 😂😂😂)
BUT I KNO YOU GONNA LAHVE IT.
I'm going to be doing this Pasar Malam aunty style ✌️ with random injection of videos ✨✨
Omg if you're like me and you don't know what a Diatomite mat is….
It's a magical mat that is hard like a clay mat. But absorbs water like some thirsty camel???
Hahaha sorry damn weird. But it's basically a earthern mat that absorbs water?????
I was initially damn skeptical about this until I went to some weird shop in Tanjong Katong and tried it out 😂😂
I was sold! Cos I initially though they were soft mats hahaha. And the water sucking power is freaking amazing. ✨✨✨✨
Plus you know how those mats become damn smelly after awhile. This one doesn't.
Means you never need to wash them ever.
They also don't have that funky smell and it is surprisingly as good as a normal floor mat!
It does get dirty and become less absorbent but you can sand down the mat to remove the dirt!
So that's awesome also!
My brother bought 1 from Don Quijote in Japan and I proceeded to order 10 more from Taobao 😂
Don't need to worry about whether to wash floor cloths in the washing machine Liao!
I AM KNOWN for using cheap cosmetics ah. 😒
#dayrebeauty I am not challenging the community's love for all things beautiful,
I just cannot bring myself to buy expensive make up when I have very little requirements for my own face.
I also have sensitive skin but apparently my face is more resistant??? So I just anyhow throw shit on it and it still is ok so far ✌️
The $2 Daiso Eyebrow Pencil
I've been using this for years already 🙃
After @chenshiqi recommended the etude house one to me which has the squarish tip and the brush side also.
Tbh the Etude house one is damn cheap already la at $4-$5 but the Daiso one is $2 and almost exactly the same.
I happened to chance upon it when we were buying cheap make up for Halloween from Daiso and I was like aiya, just try la!
The Daiso pencil looks like this la 🙃 except one of the caps is supposed to be transparent but uh I lost it so I just anyhow got a replacement. 🙃
Some of the Daiso Eyebrow pencils SUCKKKKK like no matter how hard you draw it doesn't have any colour.
But this one legit is good. Super similar to the Etude house one! And for $2….cannot hiam ✌️
The NYN eyeliner
Hahaha this one damn hilarious. I was looking for an eyeliner on my BKK trip cos mine died.
And I got some shop in platinum mall to recommend me one of her bestsellers. She took out this felt tip one and then told me it's 200 baht.
I tried it and then it was ok la so I bought it.
The next day when I tried it wtf. It drew the sharpest lines???? And made my eyeliner looked fabulous.
Also, it doesn't smudge when it is rubbed, it just like flakes off in parts which is wonderful when
I want to use tissue paper to remove my eyeliner sometimes 🙃🙃
I've used eyeliner that smudges when I accidentally rub it ( I sometimes forget I have make up on) and it BLOWS.
Like I just look like I got punched.
But this one doesn't smudge ever. So I went back to buy 8 more 🙃🙃🙃🙃
Hahaha this @tshihhwee cannot stand how I'm using dubious NYN eyeliners so she got me a mistine one. But wtf I still like my NYN more 🙃
It has accompanied me through some of the best times in my life.
Like looking beautiful during our family photoshoot 🙃
Hahaha wts damn random suddenly from beauty change to food 🙃🙃
But THE BEST DURIAN SHOP TO EVER EXIST
Goes to Hoe Seng Heng at Tanjong Katong Road opposite Caltex!!!!!
You know how sometimes durian sellers are all scammers 😥😂😂 just how big or small scammers.
But this place 😭😭 is the best.
We happened to chance upon it and got to know that the aunty is super cute and nice?
You can see Daniel in this picture and the Aunty owner ❤️
Instead of other durian owners that only let you pinch the meat to taste before buying, she lets you take 1 entire seed out
And if you show her my picture, you can take 2 seeds out 😂
After you confirm the durian, she will weigh it (minus away the weight of the 2 seeds you already tried and ate ah!!!!!) And then charge you for it.
HELLO WHERE GOT OTHER STALLS SO NICE ONE
She also sells damn huge 13kg watermelons.
Oh and if the durian not nice, she will throw it away. Not like other people take out the hard flesh and pack into those styrofoam boxes to sell later 🙃
She will just throw away.
Once Daniel told her don't throw leh. Give him eat for free hahahahah and then she opened a small durian to give to him 😂😂😂😂😂😂
She has a BEAUTIFUL parrot called ZAI which is basically son in Cantonese la. And she really loves that bird.
I ONLY eat durians from there haha. And I've once bought like $300 worth of durian 😂 (which is alot to me la maybe only 3 durians to some people)
I trust her implicitly 😂 cos she dotes on us like we are her own kids everytime we go!
If you guys go….
Please show her this photo.
So she knows I am worthy 😂😂😂😂😂
Ok moving on to something #OBC related!!! Haha.
A lot of you come on the website to ask for my personal favs so I thought I should share it with you guys!
The here for you
Out of all the designs that we stock, I hoard this one like nobody's business.
I think till date I have about 6 pieces of the HFY which I wear on rotation 😂😂
It's not the most stylish amongst our repertoire but it is definitely THE MOST COMFY OMFFFF.
And everytime a #dayremum comes along to tell me they are pregnant, I will recommend this without hesitation 😂
I will wear this bralette till the day I day 😂
It so comfy I don't even???? 🙃
Haha after wearing bralettes I cannot go back to bras anymore.
Love Like Red Velvet (OBClassic)
My next obsession is the Love Like Red Velvet bralette that's part of our Christmas launch! 🙃
It's not velvet material la (😂 lame the name don't match 😂) but it's crazy comfy. And it might be my new favourite over the OBClassic midi?????? 🙃🙃🙃
Then again this is also an OBC original design so…no complaints wahaha.
I've been wearing it every day (except when washing) since I got it.
It also comes with match boyshorts that make me want to cry 😂
That picture didn't do the colours justice so I need to post another one 😂😂😂
I think I fell in love with the colours 😂
The Chicken Cutlets 😂
I've pretty much replaced all my strapless pieces with the chicken cutlet now after I realised how good they can be when worn properly + with the right kind of adhesive ✌️
In fact I just wore the cutlets the whole of yesterday without needing to readjust it. I think I have mastered the art of wearing it 🙃
Hehe stealing a photo from one of our customers who unboxed the beta cutlets 🙃
I've never ever ever ever had so much confidence in a stick on bra before (all I've tried INCLUDING the patented nubra fell off in 5 mins) but this one…
I tried with my own life and boobs and risked having my bra fall off half way through my manicure.
But it works la and I'm damn happy cos I literally don't ever need to wear a shitty uncomfortable strapless bra ever again.
But application is really the key so, I actually filmed a video today on how to wear the cutlet. And I'll edit and put it up soon. ✌️
I hope it helps! Cos wearing it properly is really super important in helping it stay properly.
The Couch Potato Bralette
If you're wondering why the name of this bralette sounds so ridiculous…
You are ridiculous 🙃
Hahaha it's a comfy name for a comfy bralette that makes you want to lie on your bed all day.
I never understood the term "lounging" cos I lounge in my holey t-shirts which I freaking love (and fuck you if you think it's unsightly + dampens your mood)
But if I ever understand lounging, it would be because of this bralette.
I even wore it in my cutlet tutorial video cos I love it so much and it's so so so so flattering.
I put it on and start singing Christmas carols 😂😂😂😂😂
But ya. I never used to like satin but now I do (thanks #obc and Mister 🌵, who is my manufacturer) and now I am obsessed.
But I still wouldn't lounge in these la. Cos the material is not high stretch enough and…????
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be comfortable in ugly clothes at home.
This brings me to my next segment…
Hahaha wts I'm horrible 🙃
But I once did a poll on #obc's IG stories on whether you are a T-shirt and FBTs kind of girl of a nightdress and spaghetti sets kind of girl.
I am definitely a t-shirt girl. The one thing I'm super pleased with is that I amassed a disgusting number of cotton school based t-shirts back in Secondary/JC days and now I have plenty of sleeping t-shirts and FBTs.
For example in this photo I took to show off the prowess of my hair dryer (I'll share again later) I'm wearing my school PE t-shirt 😂
God bless Daniel and I are from the same school so we have like DOUBLE the amount of comfy t-shirts.
Sometimes he likes to be an ass and pick the same shirts (aka 2 PE shirts or 2 orientation shirts) and make us match in lalaland 😂😂😂😂 #boliao
And in this picture with @chenshiqi best friend Chen, I am wearing my FAVOURITEST I love chicken rice ball t-shirt from Malacca, Jonker Street.
This is my second one already.
The first one I owned has been around for >10 years. It has like 10 holes all over and the material is SOOOOOoooOoOOO thin after like all the washing.
I still love it and I refuse to throw it away. I have hidden it cos I'm scared my mum will secretly throw it. 😂🙃
I know the style now is to lounge in like…super atas looking pyjamas that also double up as effortlessly atas outfits.
Ala Blaire Waldorf in Gossip Girl style of dressing at home.
But wts? Unless you live alone and can get away with not wearing a bra or your family is ok with seeing you with half your tit popping out. It's damn difficult la.
I bought super cute PJs before but tore a hole at the crotch cos the satin material doesn't stretch 🙃
I'm also a typically damn chor lor sleeper so if I sleep in a dress, you will see my undies 100%
Also I don't like to wear a bra or bralette at home so a t shirt hides my nipples. But a small slinky slip will not. 🙃
Sometimes I do wear them and lie on my bed with the door locked and Aircon turned on. But once I leave the room, it's into a t-shirt I change into immediately ✌️
Silver is my best friend. I'm not allergic to it and it's cheap, doesn't really change like brass jewellery does and lasts a long time.
I love it!
Hehehehe. The thin round ring we have has been around for about 7 years.
And the square one is a recent (1-2years ago) addition from BKK.
I love love love all my silver jewellery because it lasts and it is cheap.
Hehe I also got the hair curler from Braun cos….I was too lazy to wait for the Taobao ones to come (LOL got my forwarder to refund it for me 😂😂)
My hair has been a mess ever since I cut it short (fak short hair maintanence is like a shit) but my life has been saved by the hair dryer and this hair straightener.
For $78 I'm damn amazed la! It has the ion spewing tech also so my hair isn't FRIZZED and chaotah after straightening.
It's SILKY SMOOTH
I want to add more stuff to the list but I'm damn forgetful so when I think of stuff I'll do a part 2 post ok! Hahaha.
As a poor student back when Daniel and I started dating, we wanted to get promise rings (HAHSHSHS I JUDGING MYSELF) but didn't have the money to spend la.
So we walked into Thomas Sabo (my favourite place to get sterling silver jewellery) and asked for 2 of the simplest and thinnest silver bands.
I think it cost us a total of around $200? And it lasted us for 7 years!!!!!
We wear a gold band now, but I still love my silver ones so very very very much.
They are really really lasting and they age very well, even with all their nicks and scratches.
We both believe in wabi-sabi so we actually kind of appreciate the time worn marks on the rings, kind of like the same way the universe wears us out and leaves marks on our minds and bodies too.
This is hardly a lifetime fav haha cos I just got it a few days back but I REALLY MUST SHARE
Maybe cos I've never owned a decent hairdryer hahaha in my life. So my new hair dryer and straightener are AMAZING
I got them from Courts about 2-3 days back and hahaha so far it's been AMAZINGGGG
Actually, it's my mummy's present to me, that's why I was ok with getting something so expensive (my mum LOVES my hair more than I do so she always asks me to don't buy China stuff 😂😂😂😂)
But I got this heavy duty salon grade hair dryer from Braun that kicks ass!!
The moment I turned it on I knew it was different la. Cos some hairdryers have that high pitched whirring but this one is damn deep the sound 😂
It's super powerful and dries my thick as f hair in about 5-6 minutes.
But my hair is damn short now la. Maybe with long hair it will take double the time or more la 😂
Also cos the wind is damn strong so it dries my roots and scalp effectively. I've never had a hair dryer dry my scalp so fast and so well. ❤️❤️✨✨
It's expensive la. $100+ after discount. But I think so far I've been damn happy with it!
Oh ya, it also has dunno what ions so after blowing my hair is never frizzy and is damn straight 👍👍👍
LAHVE it. But I would not have bought it if my mum didn't gift it to me…
Except now I have a new impression of good hair dryers 😂😂
