Hi everyone.'s been 4 months since I last posted here. HOLY SHIZZ. I guess I just got caught up with life and didn't have time to write and post. *starts piling up layers of excuses*
There's been so much going on though. Yesterday was my last day of work, which means that now I have time to spare for my miserable, sad, neglected blog. There is sooooooo much backlog omg. Like my graduation. brother's wedding, my Japan trip, cosfest, comifest and so on. Watch out for it because I'm going to make sure I finish at least 3 of it by the end of this week. ........or I hope?....

I'm not sure whether I've mentioned in my previous posts but I applied for some of the universities in UK, and guess what! I got accepted into Oxford Brookes University, straight into 3rd year! Which means, I'm flying off to UK in 3 weeks time. ^^;

*mental meltdown* I don't think I'm ready for this. Oh my god. As the D-day draws closer, I'm freaking out even more. Seriously, I have no idea what is waiting for me on the other side of the globe. Thank goodness for their buddy program though, at least now I'm talking to one of the students there and well, I won't be so lost when I'm there.
I've realised that these few days, I'm even clingier than usual with my mum. Maybe it's because I'm going to miss her so so so much. Really though, HOW AM I GOING TO SURVIVE WITHOUT MY MUM?! Of course, I can't tell her all these because she's just going to be even more worried.

On a side note, I think I'm pretty well versed with the UK uni application system so feel free to ask me any questions. Hahas.

For once I finished a post in 15min. Hahas. But this is just to announce that I'm alive and I'M BACK!!!

P.S. I think my Supernatural marathon is going to get in the way of posting. ^^;
This is Rayna signing off!

Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Who has the best hair of them all?

It's been like about 8 months since I last got my hair done and it's in a pretty bad shape now. And what do you do when your hair needs help? You call Jerry and go down to Headlines Hairdressing.
So I dragged Hui Hui along to accompany me, and for some girl to girl gossip session. no seriously, we can bitch a lot. In the end, she was late, I was late, she was later than my late so I just went to the salon first and told her to meet me there. I'm not a very punctual person.

As you can see, my hair is in such a bad shape. Jerry was complaining about it too. Yeah your magic please? (On a side note, I absolutely love the makeup function on my camera. It's like, I don't even need to edit the pictures at all. Or maybe I'm just easily satisfied ._. wat)
Oh my god, look that that fringe. even when it's damp it's still so.....Q.... 
Jerry said that I needed another session of argan oil treatment to restore my hair back to the soft shiny silky state. :< It's expensive okay! But...for the sake of my choice. I sound really vain and all, but really, after doing this treatment, the hair becomes super low maintenance. I can just get out of bed and run my fingers through my hair and voila, my hair become outside world presentable.
Jerry was almost done with the first step before this girl reached. 
Since I needed to just sit and wait after the first application, it was time for some gossiping session. Coincidentally, there was this really cute guy at the seat beside mine. But it's not like I can start talking to Hui Hui about him since he would definitely hear us, and I wasn't sure whether he could understand Chinese. ended up as '私の右の男わ可愛いですね' (the guy on my right is cute right?)
And we started conversing in Japanese...which might have been a little weird. Now that I'm typing this, I'm getting paranoid and thinking...what if he understood Japanese too?! /dies/ 

CAN YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE?! Oh em gee. Welcome back soft shiny silky hair. 
I flipped through one of the japanese hairstyle magazine and saw a fringe design that I really liked so decided to get my fringe cut together with a slight trim. 

Decided to take random pictures just for the fun of it. While waiting for me to be done, Hui Hui decided to look up cafes in Singapore for us to go get our stomachs filled. It was almost 4.30pm and I had not eaten anything the whole day. 
The finished product! I'll need to wash my hair a couple of times to restore a slight wave so that the fringe ends up as desired. Right now le hair is a little too flat. 

This girl wouldn't stop molesting my hair. But really, with nice hair, confidence level multiplies!

Thank you Jerry my life saver! I can totally whip my hair back and forth now and the hair just falls right back into place.  
So Hui Hui felt that Jerry's assistant was rather cute and her type, so of course Rayna cannot hold still at that comment. I immediately texted Jerry after we left the salon and asked him for Mike's number. And the matchmaking fairy is back in business again. Hahas! But of course, I texted Mike first to sound him out, and I decided that he is not suitable for Hui Hui. (Don't ask me how I know, I just know.)

So after we were done at the salon, we originally planned on going to a cafe to grab a bite, but it was already close to 5 by the time we were done. And we had an appointment at Datsumo Labo for a consultation session at 6pm. We decided to just head over to Orchard first before going to the cafe. Since we still had some time to spare, we decided to eat at Monster Curry instead.

While waiting for the food, I was soooooo excited about my new hair that I couldn't stop camwhoring at all. ;_; (resist posting up the rest because I'm so going to get judged. hahas)

Our curry riceeeeee. 
Okay so after eating, we went down to Datsumo Labo to check out their prices and have a consultation session. (Btw, they have an outlet at Adelphi nowwwww. Omg. It's like...just a few doors down from my clinic (Y)) I'm actually still debating on whether to go for it or not, because while the price is reasonable and all, man, I still have tons of things which I need to get. But omg, it's so tempting. What should I do?
Anyway both of us said that we will think about it and left. /So conflicted/ Priorities yo.

So after that, we decided to head over to Hoshino Coffee to grab some dessert. (while typing this, I realised that I like to use the word 'so' a lot) Made a pit stop at Etude House on our way up to Hoshino. Ended up buying more stuff. Really, I should just cut my cards or something ;_;

But thankfully, this time Hui Hui bought more items than me. Achievement unlocked!

I couldn't stop camwhoring. waiiiii. /unleashes the inner bimbo/ But the lighting at Hoshino wasn't that ideal for camwhoring though. 

While waiting for our food, we set up the table for a manicure session. So I had to help Princess Hui Hui do her nails.

It's fun though. I really love doing manicures, and I only have this amount of fingers to do manicure for! I'm going to invest in a gelish UV machine soon. 8D

Hui Hui's fuwa fuwa pancake with soft serve ice cream. 

My molten chocolate lava cake with soft serve ice cream! What an excellent matchhhh.

Look at all the molten chocolate inside.

My ice cream pretty much melted so I'm just going to drink it down like milk!

Failed attempt at milk mustache. Hahahahaha.
After Hoshino, it was already 9+ so time to part ways. End of the day of outing!
And finally I'm done with one post. PS. It took me 2 months just to finish writing this post. *slow clap for self*

Back from the Dead

Oh my god. I'm so sorry everyone. I know, I disappeared for months. Omg the last time I blogged was in September '13. I'm not trying to make excuses but after I started working full time, suddenly I really hardly have time to blog. And now I'm studying part time too. I really admire those super dedicated bloggers now. I finally understand how my cousin feels too. She's been juggling work full time and school part time for 6 years.

Life's been pretty crazy nowadays, work is like 12 hours on certain days, I'm studying part time at Kaplan now and I still have my Japanese classes. Obviously I need to work on my management skills because I'm almost starting to get overwhelmed.

On a positive note though, I already got accepted into Oxford Brookes University so I'll be flying to UK in September. But because of that, suddenly time seems to be passing by really quickly. Right now I'm just like, wait, what happened to January. Well, I'm totally looking forward to it but at the same time feeling apprehensive too since it'll be my first time being overseas alone and for a super long period. I wonder how long it'll take before I get homesick and all. ;_;

I mentioned that I'm working full time now right? I'm working at a Chiropractice clinic now, as a chiropractic assistant. It's totally awesome and I really really love working here. Even if there was another job with a higher paying salary, I think I'll still stay here. Heck, I'm even considering coming back here to work when I finish my degree in UK. I'll talk more about my current work/workplace in the next couple of posts because I have loads to talk about.

This post is more of just a heads up for everyone that I'M BACK!!!!!!
So look out for more posts from me from today onwards. There will be posts on my dance covers, makeup, daily life and more!
