LAST MAN STANDING!

September 28, 2012

HELLLLLO!!
When was the last time you guys got
completely wasted/drunk/sloshed? Like to the stage you’re lying on the floor
outside a club, or spouting nonsense which you don’t mean, or making out with
some random dude whom you barely know. 1 week ago? 1 month ago?
Getting drunk is such a common matter
nowadays so I’m gonna be sharing my own experience and opinions about it today!
The first time I got drunk was at a
friend’s birthday celebration, and I didn’t care about my alcohol intake
despite knowing that I’m not a good drinker. It was just the start of the party
and I was so drunk I puked 6 times altogether that night. I was lying on the
couch like a zombie, puking out my dinner in my friend’s toilet (i remember
there was vege and sausages in my puke and WE ACTUALLY STEPPED ON THEM COS WE THOUGHT
IT WAS FUN -.-) and cried cos it felt so horrible. No matter how many times I
puked, it didn’t seem to get any better. My other girlfriends were so horribly
drunk that they just knocked out flat on the floor. One even sobbed for hours
without stopping!! ALL our boyfriends who weren’t there were worried sick!! I
had my friend to send me home cos I couldn’t walk properly and when I reached
10th floor which was the level of my house, I puked again in a plastic bag and
threw it down from the 10th floor (pardon me, I really wasn’t thinking
straight)!! Plopped on my sofa till the next morning with a hangover fever and
headache. That was the WORST drinking experience for me and from then on, I
told myself not to EVER EVER get so wasted again. I didn’t even get to enjoy my
friend’s birthday properly and I had to burden so many of my friends to take
care of me!! 🙁
I’m really super thankful that I didn’t do
anything I’d regret when I was drunk that night but I’m just one lucky
girl. 
If you club occasionally,  you should
know this are common sight outside/in clubs…

*Pictures taken from Google

I really think that girls who can’t carry
themselves decently is a major turn off!! Do they NOT MIND flashing their butt
cheeks or their panties off or is it because they are so drunk that they’re
unaware of it? Hooking up with random dudes, having one night stands because
you’re drunk? That’s just not classy. I used to hate clubbing and never wanted
to start on it because such things happen too often and it’s soooooo freaking
repulsive BUT I realized it’s not clubbing as a whole that makes one loses its
“dignity” or sense of decency, it’s  the lack of control for
their alcohol intake which results in such acts. 
I know some girls don’t mean for such
things to happen so, 
LIMIT YOUR ALCOHOL INTAKE, DON’T BINGE DRINK AND LEARN TO STOP!! 
Respect yourself before you want to command respect from others!

Be the last man standing together with me!


Last man standing is a campaign done in collaboration with Health Promotion Board to encourage youths like us to party without getting drunk. A breathalyzer test will be done and those who are sober will walk away with attractive prizes. Perks of being sober ^^

Here’s the gauge of your sobriety!

Zirca is a participating club which
practises responsible drinking. Bartenders will spot early signs of drunkenness
and will serve you mocktails instead of cocktails or even not serve you any
alcohol at all. 
Learn about the Last Man Standing video
below!



This is the concoction to a good night
Great company + awesome music + just a little bit of alcohol

I really hate leaving a club looking completely different from how I looked at the start. Like messy hair, groggy eyes, smudged makeup and alcohol-stained dress, HATE IT!! So I really do make it a point to limit my alcohol intake so I look alright in pictures ^^ …. LIKE THIS…

And still can wake up the next day without hangover to have awesome brunch 😀

I know sometimes it’s hard to say no to alcohol when you’re in the partying mood so here are a few tips for you!!

GIRLS
– Set a limit to
yourself and stick to it! Make a pact with your girlfriend not to cross a
certain number of glasses!
– Alternate an
alcoholic drink with water or mocktail
– Don’t drink on an
empty stomach. It can increase your appetite for food and may cause you to
overeat (HUH! GIRLS WHO ARE TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT READ THIS!!)
GUYS
– Eat before and
during drinking, but avoid food that makes you thirsty! 
– Work that drink.
Move around, dance or chat with friends instead of sitting down (another reason
for you to save money of getting a table)
And guys, did you know that alcohol decreases your testosterone level and increases your estrogen level? 
Bad idea to binge-drink if you’re trying to impress a girl that night, you don’t want her to take you for a gay ^^
This was taken last Friday! Had so much fun even without much drinks so girls and guys, you don’t have to binge drink to have fun (: 
Join me to be the #lastmanstanding!

Be smart and be classy, don’t binge drink and do things you might regret for your life (:

♡WEEKEND♡ {Johor Premium Outlet + Cosy Corner}

September 27, 2012
*Note : I’ll not be taking anymore questions regarding BKK or anything that affects TJM’s confidentiality on formspring anymore as it’s been ongoing for very long. I’ve already done a BKK guide here and TJM’s story here so I hope those posts answer all your questions. Will be ignoring any questions pertaining to these two topic from now on. Hope you girls understand (:
I have been wanting to check out the new outlet stores in Johor(JB). Daniel’s brother wanted to get something from there last Sun so we made an impromptu trip in!
It’s about 20 mins drive from the JB custom! 
They have quite a lot of brands there. The more common ones would be Versace, Coach, AX, Burberry, Raoul, Ralph Lauren, Esprit, Cotton On, La Senza(!!), Tumi.
Super horrible picture of me. My face looks like a fishball, but that’s the only picture of us 🙁
Father and son susheelan (:
Decided to try out the crepes but it’s soooo bad :/
Look how empty it is!!! It’s like just eating flour!
Headed to Sentosa(the one in JB) for tze char dinner, so yummy and cheap! I think it was RM$150 for 6 of us, and we ordered like 8 dishes?
Didn’t buy much from the outlet stores cos I didn’t go financially prepared, and also cos most of the items there are old stocks so it’s not very nice. Bought chocolates cos I was craving for it. Got Kiehl’s moisturizer cos I finished my Shiseido and Hada Labo one! I don’t think it’s a lot cheaper also but I needed it. La Senza there is DAMN worth it though!!! Bought 3 bras for RM$96 (SGD38)!!!!!!! SINGAPORE IS SELLING THE SAME ONES AT 3 FOR SGD$99. 
Sobzzzzz, I feel like shit now because I spent SO MUCH money in Singapore’s la senza already!! I’m going to JB to buy la senza from now on! I HATE YOU TAX AND MARKUPS!
I was a bit upset over some personal matter when I got back. Daniel’s sooooooo nice to me cos he always tries his best to make me smile when I’m down though I’m quite hard to please at times. 
Then he said “Tell me what I can do to make you smile, I’ll do anything just to see you smile” <3
I told him I wanted him to stay up to talk to me and I was craving for Macs, so that’s him calling Macs at 4am just to make me smile (:
♡ Ai si ni le â™¡
My childhood doll which I love a lot! 
My lover and best friend! LOL, LOOK AT HIS BOXERS!! I “made” it for him. It looks mad stupid cos I sewed floral pockets on it, and stitched words like “chocolate” and “bubbles”. Still pleases me a lot that he still wears it 😀
