Hello! This blog is my namesake. My surname is pronounced as “see-AH”. It is written as “佘” (shé) in Chinese character and is considered as one of the rarest surnames in the Chinese community. It is something I am proud of hence I may not respond positively to mispronunciation of my family name, depending on my mood 😛
I am a 26-year-old Communication Studies (specialising in Advertising) graduate from the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University. Previously I was educated at Singapore Polytechnic (Diploma in Media and Communication) and Hillgrove Secondary School. Languages I speak include English, Mandarin, Cantonese and very, very basic Malay, French and Spanish. I am a linguist wannabe.
I have been blogging since 2004 on various blogging platforms (Blogdrive, Blogspot and Livejournal) before finally settling on WordPress in 2010. I write about anything under the sun that interests me – usually from day-to-day events. I don’t deny I have terrible photography skills so I prefer to describe my day in words. Don’t be alarmed to see a full page of blog post with just text because I strive to be detailed (I have terrible memory and tend to forget stuff after some time). Of course, I have tried to incorporate more images in recent entries for easy reading. 😉
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 😛
