Hello, my name is Fiona and this blog is my namesake! In case it isn’t obvious enough, I’m a Singaporean Chinese with the last name “Seah” (pronounced “see-AH”, like how you’d call Sia Furler) which translates to “佘” (shé) in Chinese and is considered as one of the most uncommon surnames in the Chinese community.
I am a late 20-something (not ashamed about my age, just too lazy to update this every year!) Communication Studies graduate of WKWSCI at Nanyang Technological University with a Media and Communication diploma from Singapore Polytechnic. I can speak fluent English and Mandarin and had also picked up French, Spanish and Malay briefly during my Poly and undergraduate years. Basically, I consider myself a linguist wannabe.
I have been blogging since 2004 on various blogging platforms (Blogdrive, Blogspot and Livejournal) before finally settling on WordPress in 2010. Blogging has always been a way for me to keep track of my life events as well as to monitor my spendings.
I am a pet lover. I used to have 2 pet dogs named Angel and Chubs (pronounced “Choobs”) but Angel (the Shih Tzu on the left) passed away on 9 August 2013 due to old age. Since then, Chubs has been keeping me company and making everyday brighter.
My interests include designing, learning foreign languages, pets, food, music, sleeping and most importantly, shopping. I am a makeup fanatic and among my favourite brands are Urban Decay (for eyes, face and lips), Anna Sui (for lips), Benefit (for face), MAC (for lips) and Bobbi Brown (for face).
I don’t use false lashes 🙂 So those lashes are real!
Besides the usual feminine hobbies, I am also obsessed with Pokémon, which has been my favourite childhood cartoon and game since it started in the late 90’s. I own a 3DS but it’s only used for Pokémon games.
I don’t consider myself a compulsive shopper though I do have the urge to shop whenever I feel that I’ve worked too hard. In recent months, I have written a lot about my purchases because I feel the need to voice my thoughts and to provide an objective viewpoint not influenced by sponsorship. Also, the topics I usually touch on are not widely talked about by other bloggers.
If necessary, I’m a UK8/10 for tops and UK10 for bottoms. I stand at 165cm (5’4) tall. I wear shade NC35 for MAC products and my skin falls under the sensitive range.
I make it a point to have a blog to document my life events so that I have something to laugh about in the future. And it’s also a great way to monitor my ageing process 😛
