F . A . Q
SCHOOLDAYS
Q: What Schools have you been to?
A: Little Schoolhouse (Yes, I spent my childhood in ClarkeQuay, the place's so diff from what it used to be), Maha Bodhi School, CHIJ Katong Convent Secondary, Temasek Poly (Business), Singapore Management University (Business)

Q: Did you do well in School?
A: I've just an average student... I love learning but really hate studying. I only studied for PSLE 3 days before my papers, scored 211. I thankgod when I do well, and he blessed me with good O Level Grades of 10points (yay!) & awesome GPA score thus I could make it into SMU. Honestly, I believe grades don't determine who I am but personality does.
GADGETS
Q: What Camera am I using?
A: Canon DSLR 500D, Canon S95, Casio EX-TR150 & mostly, IPHONE5! Lastest addition includes Samsung EX2F for its photo editing and wifi feature.


Q: What Laptop am I using?
A: MacBook Air. I was previously using a Sony Vaio (because the limited edition nudepink colour was too chio not to buy) and moved over to MacBook Pro (but it got too heavy so I sold it) and that's how I happily ended up with my current MacBook Air.

FOOD
Q: What would you usually snack on?
A: I love FRUITS! I eat them almost every single day! Snacks... Dark Chocolate Digestives, Black Pepper Pretzel Bites, Crunchy Cookies etc

Q: What is a must try?
A: Beancurd & Beancurd Tarts. Believe it or not, I haven't eaten a single bit of egg tarts ever since I chanced upon Beancurd Tarts 3years ago. There's many other food I love too, talk to me to find out!

Q: Favourite IceCream Flavour?
A: Dark Chocolate! And since I don't want to waste calories unnecessarily, I only indulge in Awfully Chocolate's HEI IceCream and sometimes, Haagen Daz's Belgium Chocolate.
SHOPPING
Q: Where do you normally shop at?
A: Overseas! I love shopping in Bangkok and China. Afterall, it's way cheaper. Ever since I've been there and seen the low prices, I feel very much cheated when I shop in Singapore *facepalm*. Having said that, since I'm staying in Singapore, so I have to satisfy my shopaholic tendencies and thus, I head to places like Bugis Street, Cityplaza, Orchard, not forgetting online shopping of which I shock myself when I see the credit card bill at the end of the month. Call me Budget Barbie? *flicks hair* Oh to add on, I love to kill time at Daiso, Ikea and Sanrio shops. I can exit with many things even when I entered without having the intention to buy any!

Q: What's your style?
Check out my #ootd! I'm rather versatile, sometimes, I like to dress cute, sometimes, I like to dress geek and the list goes on. What I wanna wear depends on my mood for the day and the occasion that I'm attending.
BEAUTY
Q: Do you have a daily skincare routine?
A: Nope. In fact, I have rather sensitive skin so I only use Water! Believe it or not, but I don't use any facial products at all. The only times I use them is when I need to feature products for advertorials. 
When I'm free and not feeling lazy, I'll put masks and sometimes, go for facials once in while.

Q: WHAT?!? But your skin looks fine?
A: Yes, I'm quite blessed that unlike most girls, I've never gone through acnes or breakouts when I was younger & I certainly do not want to go through it. During exams, sometimes I get pimples (I think) but after the exams are over, they'll naturally disappear. I reckon it's the stress and my skin's ability to read my mood, wow ~ It's in the genes, my mom has never suffered from any skin problem as a teenager too!

Q: What are your Makeup Essentials?

A: Again, I doubt if I'm a girl in this aspect! Because, I don't really use makeup. I don't understand how girls can spent so much time in the mirror doing that. Plus, it's so troublesome removing them especially after a long day. All I wanna do is bathe and jump straight into bed. But okay, if I do use any for events or parties, I'd go for brands such as Maybelline, Majolica Majorca etc. Oh, just so you know, I do have falsies extensions and I love them because it's a great cover up for not putting any makeup. Okay, maybe I should try putting some makeup in future, and feel prettier? *winks* (;

Q: Do you wear contact lens?
A: Proud to say, NO! I don't even know how to put fake lenses. It's like putting your finger into your own eye, how ewww! Thankgod for the great genes inherited from my grandma & dad whom doesn't wear specs at all, teehee! I remember in Pri school, I wanted to wear glasses so badly cause my friends had pink hellokitty specs so I purposely went to read books and watch TV in a wrong position but I got scolded for doing so.

SPORTS
Q: What sports do you play?
A: Tennis, Badminton, Golf. I hate running and gyming (okay except maybe for the music & wonderful aircon part).

Q: Do you have an exercise routine?
A: Erm, sadly no. I'm quite lazy and I always procastinate! hurhur.
