Holy cow, see how long I have been slacking off in updating my blog? OK, I was not exactly slacking off, my uni-related stuff (again) has taken a toll on me (I was sick, recovered, sick and finally recovered again), and I am catching up with old buddies and spending as much time with my friends as this is my final semester. After this, most probably we will end up in different countries, trying to find some moolah to support ourselves. My two besties are going back to their respective hometown. One is thinking of continuing her family’s business in Indonesia and the other is going back to Saudi (or Kenya) and see where life will take her lol. What about me? I’m going to Maldives and Kenya at the end of this year (after my exam and finish moving my stuff out) for my little trip :). Thanks to my friends, they are willing to provide shelter for the poor me haha. When I get back, it’s either joining the work force or heading off to Canada. We’ll see much of my frozen ass if my parents decide to fund my study hahaha (this is exactly what my close friend said. frozen ass. nyahahaha)
Note: From this point on, it’s going to be picture-heavy and some disgusting pictures ahead. Click at your own risk 😛
I have been growing these babies for the past 6 weeks! I am not going to talk so much about technical terms, so basically I was growing tomato leaves and carrot slices on nutrient-containing media and observing any organs developed. I was supposed to see shoot, root or callus formation depending on the treatment. Unfortunately, the carrot slices were all heavily contaminated, or not growing anything at all! Whilst for the tomato leaves, I still see some growing roots and callus, but none growing shoot. So tonight I will have to crap my way out to find why no shoot growing on the media, and no, it was not contaminated.
I cultured 16 jars of tomato leaves and carrot slices but due to health reason (you may lose your appetite lol) I am not going to post them out :P. I’ve seen the heavily contaminated ones from other group, and they seriously look damn gross.
Enough with the plants! Haha. I am not really a plant person actually, hehe. Some find them fascinating, just like my botanist uncle, but I find them to be plain boring 😛 except for some funky facts that I discovered through out my course lol. Anyway, here’s my collective haul for August and September. Some of them are from my swaps, and quite a number of items are not pictured, because either I have given them away or swap them back haha. Also, my cousin-sister-in-law (does this exist?) was really sweet to give me a set of T’estimo prism collection consisting of two cream e/s (yellow and pale pink in a square pan at the top) and two lipsticks (not in the picture). She knows how much I love T’estimo lipstick. They are very creamy :D. I will take a picture of the lipsticks later on and you will be able to see how small and cute they are! Did anybody notice the browcake from I Nuovi? I got it from their gift voucher I saw on facebook 😛 To tell you the truth, I kinda like it ;). (I’m sorry some of the items cannot be seen properly due to bright lighting. The light hit my HIP cream eyeliner in Eggplant until I can barely see it!)
Items used: I Nuovie EyeBase (all over the lid), Tigi big fat fun eyeliner in Smudgie Black as a base, MAC Carbon (top off the base), mix of teal and seafoam blue e/s from 88-palette on top of the black, and matte white as highlighter. I use the same eyeliner to line my waterline and lower lashline. Oops, almost forgot! Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara 😀
Anyway, since I got up too early this morning I decided to play around a little bit, looking for inspiration on what eye makeup should I put on my friend tomorrow. I am helping her and two other friends for the makeup as they are going for Monash ball tomorrow. Pardon the unprep skin! 😛 I just woke up anyway and if anyone wondering about the crocodile-like lid, I am having some allergy :(. The patch nearby my browbone is due to using Benefit F.Y. Eye!. Definitely not for dry lids! Also it’s still a little messy and the blending is mediocre. -_-
And finally, some random pictures! Please tell me I don’t look scary 😛
