Hey guys! Hope your day is going well 🙂
I was tagged by some bloggers (didn’t keep track of the names but thank you, whoever you are!) to do a variation of tags a few months ago. Tags are a series of questionnaires about your personal life and you’re supposed to repost the questions on your social media account with your answers if you’re tagged to do it. It’s like responding to survey quizzes with Facebook Notes which apparently was the craze a few years back. Now, it’s back to haunt me on WordPress. Hahaha, kidding.
Well, throughout my 5 years on WordPress, I have been documenting my life in the form of product and service reviews. Very seldom would you see me writing extensively about myself here because I’m usually quite uncomfortable with the idea of baring my soul to the world and documenting my every move online (the internet is such a scary place).
But I actually thought that tags would be a fantastic way to unveil bits and pieces of my life without sounding too.. self-obsessed? And it’s about time I take a break from reviews and inject some personal touches to this space of mine. 😉
For this post, I have picked a beauty tag which I’m always very excited to talk about (and ‘coz beauty inevitably forms part of the backbone of this blog). So here goes!
1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Naturally straight. It used to be very straight before I chopped off my hair when I was 15 and people would think that I rebonded it when I didn’t 🙂 Now it’s more wavy than straight because I bun up my hair a lot.
2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I get it done at a salon because I can’t dye for nuts.. and my hands won’t be able to reach some parts of my hair.
3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
I’m all about convenience when it comes to dressing up and it has always been the case since I started buying my own clothes. Is that considered as a style? But I love anything pink, floral and girly.
4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I… don’t do any mani or pedi.
Yes. I think it’s a complete waste of money and they won’t last more than a day on me anyway!
5. How often do you change your nail polish?
As above, no nail polish unless I’m in a destructive mood to scratch off paint from my nails.
6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
It depends on how much time I have for makeup. Typically 10-15 minutes during morning rush hour (lighter makeup and sans highlighter and mascara) and 20-30 minutes on days I can afford to waste 😉
8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Used to be my face until I realised that it’s way faster to do my eyes first! Plus, the foundation that comes after helps to cover up all the annoying fallout!
9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I unabashedly admit that I collect makeup so I have tons of unused products at home. Eye palettes and lipsticks are just too irresistible.
10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I don’t wear them because eyelashes make a huge difference to one’s look (and I dislike the feeling of them weighing down my lids). I like my makeup to stay as natural as possible and I don’t wish to appear unrecognisable without my lashes 😉
11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
Yes, as long as I have the time for it. And especially if I am experiencing breakouts.
12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?
Nope, I’m perfectly fine with my family and boyfriend seeing my no-makeup face. I’m not that self-conscious!
13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yes, definitely. I’ve done that a couple of times on days when my skin looks flawless HAHA. And also I don’t mind leaving the house without makeup if I’m commuting by car. But it’s a huge no-no if I’m heading to farther places from home like town by public transport.
14. How many high-end products do you have?
I’m not a high maintenance person so I don’t seek brands like Gucci, Prada or LV. I think my most expensive accessories to date are my Coach wristlets (gifted to me by my cousin and boyfriend), Kate Spade bag and wallet (bought by my boyfriend when he was in US a few years back). My other high-end products are perhaps my more expensive cosmetics from Chanel, Dior and Guerlain.
15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?
I have to plan my OOTD the night before. Otherwise, I would be late for whatever I’m rushing off to.
16. How often do you change your handbag?
Rarely. I own tons of handbags but there’s only a handful (no pun intended) that I use regularly because of the size. I need a medium to large handbag to store my barang-barang hahaha.
17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I’m nocturnal and I know it’s bad for health 😦 I typically sleep after 4am (latest was 7am) and wake up before 11am. That’s less than 5 hours of sleep each day and I’ve grown accustomed to this sleeping pattern. But what to do, I’m just so busy! 24 hours a day is not enough for me.
18. How often or when do you workout?
I try to do short exercises (sit ups, crunches, stretches, planking) every night before I sleep. I run at least 3 times a week if my schedule allows.
19. Left handed or right handed?
20. How tall are you?
165cm the last time I measured. I hope I’ve grown taller after all the stretching exercises 😀
21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
Is Cantonese foreign? I have studied basic French, Spanish and Malay but I doubt I can carry a conversation in those languages. I can understand a little though.
22. How many pets do you have?
One, for now. Planning on getting another dog soon (if the co-owner agrees to be more responsible)
23. How often are you on WordPress?
Daily. WordPress is one of my pinned tabs and it’s also my homepage on my mobile Chrome.
24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
I don’t really bloghop (too busy for that these days) but I do head straight to the comments after reading a post/news article because I enjoy reading alternative views 🙂
25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see on other posts?
Not really, I pick up whatever that catches my attention when I go shopping.
Great Singapore Sale is happening right now at ZALORA! Head on to ZALORA now for the best deals and offers 🙂
26. How did you come up with your blog name?
It’s my name, duh! I wanted a name that truly represents me and eventually concluded that it should be my name. So unoriginal but yeah. Hahaha.
27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
NX-2000 for product shoots and NX-mini for outdoors.
28. How often do you clean your house?
I sweep the floor everyday because my dog sheds a lot! I clean and scrub my bathroom perhaps once every two months.
29. What’s your favorite color?
30. Do you swear?
Nope, because I feel that uttering vulgarities depreciates my self-worth. I’m not as liberal as the youth these days. I just can’t bring myself to swear. But admittedly I do swear when I’m extremely pissed off. Hahaha.
31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I’m just going to have cupcakes from Five One Degrees and torture myself with a bowl of spicy Korean instant noodles for dinner. 😀
… and that’s all I have for this tag!
I’m supposed to tag a few people to do this questionnaire but I really have nobody in mind. So I’m tagging all of you to do this! Let me know in the comments below if you’ve done it and I’ll hop over to your blog and take a look at your response! Whee, it’s gonna be so much fun!
Thanks for reading lovelies! 🙂

Thank u Fiona Sesh with the stories of Hair Fall using Plantur series.
I m wondering that before your time using Plantur you had actually suffered the hair troubles. I am now like this.
Now that all of your Crown is nicely grown back, can I too ?
If I keep using Plantur, and then how long to grow in full crown like U?
Hey Grace, yes my scalp was terrible before I used Plantur, as you can see in one of the pictures I had embedded to the post. I had very little hair and my balding spot was very very obvious. Now after using Plantur21 my hair is visibly thicker and fuller. I’m already on my third bottle (fully paid for by myself). You should be able to see results after using 1 bottle (shampoo + conditioner). Will probably take about a month if you wash your hair properly. Don’t comb your hair unnecessarily (I don’t comb before I sleep and after shower, only do before I go out) and don’t scrub or pull your hair too much when you shower!
