Nail Fetish

as i am typing this, i am officially announcing that the shift- key is no longer operable on my lappie, thanks but no thanks to my notorious son. even the enter key has to be pressed multiple time before it can function. shucks..luckily i heard from colleague today that it fair is coming soon in march, time to spend money on gadgets again. happi11 even exclamation mark can't be used.

i got my nails done before cny at this shop, which is supposed to be quite well-known at fep. it cost me a bomb but i did not quite like it n being a first timer in doing nail extension, i din wanna voice out my unsatisfaction. paid the amt and left the shop, vowing nvr to patronise them again..hahaha, mel says it is nice and few of my colleagues too.

the nails did not last a month as i was told.. it looks as though it was going to fall off anytime soon so i scoured the internet for a better extentionist and i found quite a few good ones. i made an appt with one at bugis which is nearer to my office for gel removal and another round of extension.. she saw my nails and when she is removing it, i could feel her frustration looking at it..after an hr of removing all my gel nails and shaping and buffing my original nails, she did acrylic extension for me..this is so much natural looking than the first one 9u be the judge0

brown with baby pink rose

but again i doubt the colors can last me 3 weeks because i need to do housework over the weekend, so...again another hole burnt in my pocket but this acrylic extension can last me months and months, i only need to go back for infills and change of colors / design. not sure how much those will be..

i am hooked to this now.. zach is a big boy now, so i guess this is the time i start to have my long nails back and have them made pretty1

check out clara's site and there are 2 more which i like as well, especially cynthia's.

Looking forward to CNY 2011

This year marks the first time in my entire life that I spent my Chu Xi in Singapore. Hubby and myself made a pact last year that we will spend Chinese New Year's eve at each other's house alternate year. This year is his turn.

Naturally I feel different, a pang of sadness that I cried a bit when I called my mom in the afternoon. I miss spending this day with my family.. my family is a bit different cos we're a very very noisy bunch and everyone will try to stall our time at the dinner table the longest possible cos dad always say, whoever gets up first will not get ang pow from him...hahaha

We had steamboat for dinner this year, something I am so not used to cos we had steamboat at normal day as well, so it was nothing special but... Zach was in good mood cos the weather was good and windy, thank God for that else we will have a hard time enjoying dinner.

By 9.30pm, I am sitting in my living room, munching on pineapple tarts and watching TV and if I am back home, I would be munching it with my family members and joking and talking nonsense.. Zach spent the night with us, manages to stay awake past 12midnight for the countdown. Back home, we would be having our prayers and if we're up to it, wil even go to the temple for annual offerings and then we will eat something sweet, like desserts to signify sweetness in our life for the new year. In SG, I was asleep by 12.30am! Zzzz.....boring

I am happy that I can go back to Klang on 2nd day of CNY..nothing beats the warmth of home and tasting mom's best cooked meal. Too bad we will miss the prayers again on 9th day of CNY but next year I will make sure I am in Klang for it...

Next year will be a better Chu Xi for me and Zach!! Looking forward to it now..
