Things to do before I die.

Sorry for the gloomy title. I used to think about the future. But as I grow older (or as I see more and more deaths nowadays), I would like to start living less for the future and more in the present. I don't want to die with (too many) regrets. Things that I should have or could have done.

So I'm creating a bucket list! It's gonna be harder to fulfil them I guess, since time and money no longer belongs to me alone ('perks' of getting married). But at least I'll have a goal. Or goals. Not sure if this will work out either......*sigh*
  1. Quit this job (gonna happen soon)
  2. Learn Korean
  3. Visit Korea / Ireland / Santorini
  4. Learn Muay Thai (again)
  5. Start a dog cafe (probably never gonna happen but just putting this here in case anyone has spare cash)
  6. Complete all 3 levels of Reiki and Animal Communication
  7. Lose weight (who am I kidding!)
  8. Do lasik (0_0)
  9. And most importantly, love myself more! XD
 At the end of the day, I guess I'm just trying to be happy. (Sounds familiar? Hehe.)

소지섭 내 데이트

안녕하세요~! 

So yesterday, I did probably the craziest thing I've ever done in my life. I went to see So Ji Sub (소지섭)! XD He had a press conference at City Square at 8pm. I rushed over from work, hoping to still grab a good spot. And waited for over an hour. His press conference lasted 15 minutes. >.<

But still, I think it was very worth it. I had a fairly unblocked view of the stage and I was pretty glad (for once) that I was tall. Or that the people in front of me were short. Anyway, he is incredibly good looking in real life! I wouldn't say he's tall though, since technically he's just a little taller than me. But he's very cute! And cheeky. And funny. (Especially when he said I love you lahh~) Although at times his shy side would emerge. And when he laughs you just can't help but smile along and swoon over him. ♥ *fan girl mode on*


Unfortunately, I had used my phone instead and the zoomed photos turned out pretty blurry. The 4 minute video wasn't too bad though. :(

To think that, if I hadn't watched The Master's Sun (주군의 태양) for the second time recently, I wouldn't have been so obsessed with him now. How could he not have appealed to me the first time round?! I even said there wasn't any eye candy. 오빠 미안합니다! And another plus one, he's a rapper! Haha IKR, he doesn't really fit that image. But he's good! I've been listening to some of Leessang's songs so I'm glad to add some of Ji Sub's into that list.

He has a showcase tonight, but the cheapest ticket is $68 and unfortunately (or fortunately) I'm not *that* crazy for him (yet). Wish I had free tickets though. 

오빠 화이팅!!

[sponsored review] My Bio-essence Tanaka White experience

More goodies from my favorite brand of skincare/makeup! Yay! This time I received a bottle of 4X Intensive White Serum and a tub of Double Whitening Day Cream. 


Tanaka White 4X Intensive White Serum [$45.80/30ml]

Labelled as their star product, this serum is specially blended with traditional and modern ingredients, including 4 of the greatest whitening ingredients: alpha-Arbutin, Tanaka Extract, Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid. It targets, combats and treats the causes of dark spots and uneven skin, providing highly intensive whitening and brightening for a luminous, fairer and more radiant skin, with superior whitening effect that can be seen after just 4 days!

  • Effectively lightens existing pigments and spots
  • Blocks tyrosinase and inhibits the production of melanin to prevent dark spots and reduces darkening after UV exposure
  • Evens out skin tone, whitens & brightens complexion
  • Moisturizes and cools skin
  • Skin exudes radiance, revealing a smooth, fair & healthy-looking complexion. 
  • Skin’s fairness intensifies for flawless fair skin which glows from within

Struggled a little with the dropper at first, before I finally found out how to use it properly. (Yes you may laugh.) One squeeze is actually enough to cover my entire face and neck. Love this serum. It's light and fragrant, and absorbs so easily into my skin.

Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20 [$29.80/50ml]

This cream comes with SPF 20, Tanaka Extract and Tranexamic Acid to help suppress excessive  production of melanin, protects skin from harmful sunlight and repairs skin for instant fairness from within so that skin glows with crystal clear luminosity. Regain bright and naturally fair skin as it helps repair damaged cells and encourage cell renewal. It is uniquely formulated with Hyaluronic Acid to keep skin hydrated and moisturized, and is lightly textured with a non-greasy formula to facilitate fast absorption. Tanaka Extract helps to keep skin cool.

I don't really like tub containers, so that's a minus one. Texture is not exactly non-greasy, so it leaves a slight shine on my face. At the end of the day my face becomes a little more oily than if I didn't use this cream. Perhaps it suits dry skin more? But I'm glad it has SPF 20. Yay to more sun protection!

Overall, I didn't see much difference personally, despite using it religiously every day. But I went over to my grandma's house about a week after using these, and my aunt commented that my face looks fairer. So I guess it works! ^^v
