Vdates April Week 2 ’13

IMG_20130316_5  Hi there!

Cant believe another week flew JUST LIKE THAT. I hate how time flies, it is flying rapidly especially.
May is coming and May seems like someone’s birthday – mine! haha.

I know of people who doesnt give a hoot about Birthdays but i do ok, it is a big day to me because i am super         in love with myself. To me,  my birthday is a special day because thats when an awesome person is born and thats me. Thanks.

But as the age increases, the desire to blow candles on the cake decreases :/ but i am still looking forward to celebrating of cos.

Just that i do not know who to celebrate with. For a long time, my closed friends have been bz with their lives and we have stopped celebrating Bdays for each other.

Do i sound like a loner now? Omg, i hope not. LOL

(Realised that the dark picture brings across an Emo message but no!!! i just love the effects of the photo and it is not supposed to be emo!!!)

I mean, for Bdays- i would love to celebrate with the closest people and not just any random person…my closest people are all busy but i am sure some do rem lah!

Anyway, still weeks to go and i am not really looking forward to that day now so perhaps i will talk about this later. :/

Ok, i guess is time to do some simple updates for the past week and events. Not much happenings and as usual, i took pictures to make recording easy.

I realise i havent been doing ‘Serious Blogging‘ for some time (some self improvement lessons).
Not that i am expert at self improvement but there are some experiences that i might be able to share with you guys – if it helps-good, if not…shrugs. Haha!

Maybe soon!

20130404_135142

Went to see a doc last week because of the itchy throat. I decided to knock off at 12pm, not that i want but the throat is feeling crazily uncomfortable.

It was just amazing how the whole experience turned out to be. I was rushing to the clinic near my office, i actually reached the 1st clinic at 1248pm and i was told  that i am late. The info they gave online was that they are open till 1pm.

The nurse insisted that their last patient has to be in the clinic and register by 1245pm. Ok i was late by 3mins and i am denied the chance of seeing the doc. What a clinic. The nurses continue to gossip and laughed loudly after i took my leave.

Very nice.

So i went to the next clinic that was 3 levels above the previous one. I reached there at ard 1253pm? Super late and i thought tts it, i will have to run to another clinic. But this time roung, the nurse there was so nice and she registered my name and i went ahead with the consultation.

The doc was a friendly and nice old man. He found out that i stopped smoking, he warned me  and told me NOT to touch it again. Haha.

Then, i sat down near the recept area and waited for my turn to collect my med. I was taken aback by a group of people who (suddenly) joined me and they took out their bibles and started their bible studies. YES! Right there! Haha. I was kinda ‘invited’ to join them.
I am not sure how they know i am a Christian, perhaps they saw my Cross pendant but i did not think it was obvious as it was inside my dress that day. Haha.

I joined them anyhow.

I am very touched and surprised by the message i received that day. I believe when a non believer meet with such situation, he/she will freak out and get disgusted (thats hw i wud feel when i was a non believer years back).

But for me, i know very well that God is always around me, no matter what and where. He is always talking to me. Thus the message that day really was very edifying for me.

It was 1 Chronicles 12.

Yes, the whole chapter.  You may read it Here.

However, just fyi, a short brief on the chapter:

It simply means that, if you are doing God’s work and doing it right (like David in the book). God’s favour will always be with you. Even people who do not like you, even neutral parties or even the enemies’s people, they might come to you and help you.
It doesnt has to be what you do or did that makes people wana take sides with you, it simply means God has favour over you and will send people to you.
You will also come out strong and defeat your enemy because you are doing God’s work, and being obedient to God.

This applies very much in life and of course, the current situation of my Church. I am touched by this chapter as i seldom touches the bible (opps) and i doubt i would like to read 1 Chronicles even if i happens to read the bible. I like the New Testament more actually. Haha.

Thus i am very grateful that a visit to the clinic actually allow me to feel and hear God. I thank Him for  the peace and confirmation he put into my heart. Of course, i will also apply this chapter in my own plannings for my own stuff. 🙂

Thank you God, for letting me know You are always around me =)

Project Fruits

20130405_230525 20130405_211601

The Friday night.

I spent my Friday night doing this! Haha. I call it “Project Fruits”
I was supposed to have a meeting with my sis tt night but we postponed because of Project Fruits.

I spent almost 3 hrs cutting up all the fruits and putting them into sticks. Mum was helping alot on this and she was cutting and cutting, especially the pineapples. I am so thankful. I think i shall sms her now and tell her i love her. Haha cant help it!

It was so much fruits and it was the first time i bought so much fruits all at once. $30 worth of fruits! Ronald was kind enough to help me carry them back.
If not,  i would never be able to carry those fruits home, it weighs more than 15kg i think.

Project Fruits is actually for Gary’s clinic opening. He needed fruits and i offer to bring since i insisted of bringing something over.

I mean, who would attend an opening party empty handed? I can’t do that.

So i googled for Fruits Basket online and Duh…the fruits baskets that the various florist sell  look super MEH and  they are so expensive.
The fruits look super unappealing and i was disappointed.

Then i thought of doing something special and  thus i Youtube for DIY fruits baskets. Tada! I found clips on DIY fruits baskets! I thought it was simple but it actually was quite tedious and i am so blessed to have Mummy to help me. Mummy always nv fails me 🙂

It was alright except for the cutting and all.

Did the arrangement in the morning and i am pleased with my DIY Fruits Basket. Honestly, it can look better if i use more time, it can be improved actually.

I instagrammed it while i was in the cab down to Gary’s clinic.
Of cos, it was meant to be a surprise thus i didnt reveal the real picture of the pressie till i reached the clinic.20130406_115236

20130406_121640

I am glad the guests and Gary love it. I know  Gary is a perfectionist and he always expects the best. I know he shouldnt blame me even if the fruit basket turns out like shit but i do not want to give a pot of ‘shit’ to people on people’s opening la!
And if i am the one opening a shop, i wouldnt expect to receive a pot of ugly looking thing also la!

I am not expecting to receive praises and thanks, really i am not. I once mentioned in my fb, insta and blog that i appreciate people who are thankful and grateful and not taking others’ favour for granted but i really do not mean i need praises and recognition all the time, Especially this time.

But i was surprised that Gary thanked me a couple of times. I guess Seven n Gary r being extra careful and sensitive to my feelings nowadays. I am the one that is very thankful to them for being so sensitive to how i feel. Thank you Happy 3. I really do not need those praises and non stop thanks but i am  very happy you guys love me. 🙂

Anyway, i thought i did not do much and i feel very embarrassed to being thanked for a couple of times. Tsk!

Congrats Gary! Congrats on your new opening and enjoy the challenging new journey that awaits you!

There. Thats me obviously. With boring Dark Brown hair (sometimes very light brown because of sunlight)

I was thinking of adding some colors to my hair but i hated Ombre as it is so common nowadays and almost 4 gals out of 10 gals have ombre hair.

Moreover, my hair is abit too short for ombre. Thus i wanted something thats not so flashy yet chic ( i personally think that the flashy ombre that alot of bloggers did recently look kinda cliche, i understand that it is stylish but anything too much is Not. To me.)

Went to Ooosh  and got my hair done by Perry. He is a personal friend and he is the Director of Ooosh. Perry has very rich experiences in Hair and Beauty. Whoever walks out of Ooosh always brings a wide grin with him or her, thats my own observation while i was there.

Alot of times, i am there whenever im in town, just to catch up with Perry and his wife. I did not do my hair there (back then) and it is not like they are my preferred hairstylist from day 1. We started out as friends and then i realised that their works are awesome and their services really gain recognition and praises from the customers.

Just to add, i am not very impressed with Salons that sponsor the whole loads of bloggers and whatnot because if you are good, you wouldnt need to do that (thats my own opinion).
Moreover, i hate looking ‘similar’ or having the ‘same’ hair with another person, thus i prefer to go to a recognized and ‘proper’ hair salon.
I do not mean that the other salons are crap, i just prefer Ooosh in this case as i am doing something which the whole of Sg has already been doing. I trust that i will not walk out of the salon looking like another person because  there will be some ‘unique’ twists which Perry will add in.

My hair is now not super awesome but i like it, it is not too Flashy and it looks a little ombre but it is kinda hidden. Not exceptionally special and i am sure there are people with similar style but at least not a handful i guess?

Anyway, i also brought Mum along this time. I make it a point that whenever i am ‘enjoying’ , be it good food or good relaxing activities, i will include Mummy because she deserves good stuffs more than anyone!

Thus Mummy joined me and she got herself a new hairstyle that day too.
Mum has always been very careful with how she spends thus she always cut her hair at those $10 salons downstairs my house.
I had enough of letting her ruin her hair (lol, not that i despise the $10 hair salons but i believe in paying for good services) and thus i dragged her along with me to Ooosh.

Mandatory Before & After Pic

I personally think it is still acceptable and quite ok ah. Not very Lianish like some ignorant people would say.
Anyway, i feel it depends on a person’s behavior instead of appearance to determine a person’s character.
For those that do not know what is ‘Lianish‘ (as i have a couple of foreign readers) it basically means lady hooligans/gangsters with outrageous appearances or just think “Lindsay Lohan” =x

Of course, i adore my hair now and i would post a lot more pictures!

Ytd i lost my patience with Mum, feeling so guilt stricken. 😦 But i am very blessed, my Mum understands my foul temper and always gives in to me (worse feeling builds up inside me).

I have to keep reminding myself to stop being so rude to Mummy and control that foul temper of mine.

Anyway, the week was a busy one and this Wed marks my last QiGong class, i am looking forward to Zumba and more intense workout sessions! Havent been losing much ever since that 2.5kg. =(

Anw, i did this funny crap:

Vdates March

V-dates   IMG_20130324_1 Hi! It is rare that i blog on a Sat. But i am doing it today anyway.

Well, i should be running now but looking at the time, i hesitated. TBH, i dont usually care about timing when it comes to jogging as long as it is night and dark. No sunlight please. I am used to running at night, 12mn, 3am? No diff to me.
But i have been receiving warnings and advises from various people, warning me and super against me from running at such hrs.I appreciate the concern, really. But i love running in the dark, quiet and peaceful.

However, tonight, something inside me tell me to listen to the advises and not run. It is however, 2am now.
Call me timid but i am super cautious about my well being recently, you know, besides having tons of dreams that i havent achieve, i am also very concern about my loved ones.

I do not want anything to happen to me and cause any sadness to my loved ones.
Thus i am staying in tonight and hopefully do some stretching and crunches tomorrow.

First and foremost, Vdates simply means Valencia Updates in short- a record of my past weeks events and whatnot.
I am sweating like madness now, the weather is crazy now and i am sweating even when i am stationary at home, sitting on a crouch. Can you imagine the pain. ARGH. Ok, typing till this part, i can no longer endure the warmth as it is killing me and i hate to blog in such condition.

There is no A/C in the living room and i have to run to my  bedroom for A/C.
I do not really like doing much in my bedroom except for sleeping and watching online movies- something that doesnt require me to use my brain. Thus i shall continue tmr or Mon. I cant take the heat, so…sorry! no updates till then! Will be back^

Sunday evening 9pm….

Hi, i am back but i doubt i can finish this post.
Just finished 3 hrs packing  my wardrobe.
It is not that i have plenty of clothes, ok maybe i have but most of them are impulse buys and some are old  and the fact that it is super messy doesnt help.
I am so lethargic now and the weather is CRAZY since yesterday. It is so warm and humid.

IMG_20130324_211133[1]
Slept at 5+ am this morning, watched a Chinese show call ” Together” starring Kai Ko (that dude in the TW school show), Michelle Chen (that gal in the same TW school show), Angelababy (omg, she is super super pretty) and the Ip Man guy….oh Donnie Yen.

It was a terrible show. Besides eye candies, there is ntg much to watch. After regretting, i dl Resident Evil- Retribution. I knew i make the right choice but it was already 4+am and i watched a little before drifting to sleep.

I love the feeling of drifting to sleep, super tired kinda feeling rather than rolling on bed, ‘waiting for the right time’ to fall asleep :/

Btw, i have done repairing my lappy at $60. It is cheap, yes, but it is still money.
Others might not get it, like W, he thought it was really cheap and that i am still ‘whinning’ about $60.
But it is still money to me and i am saving money for 1 big plan of my life, thus i dont really appreciate when that kinda “y u so stingy attitude” surfaces.

It is also true that my fren used to reformat my comp for free in e past…but well, since i am there (sim lim) already…might as well just get it done.

Nevertheless, i thank W and his friend for the good deal & finally, after weeks, i am relieved that i am able to return W’s lappy to him.

I dont really want to have the indebted feeling, and i feel i am obliged to have, in this whole ‘borrowing and asking for reference for repairing saga/incident/situation’

Anyway, i am a grateful person, i will thank you with the bottom of my sincere heart. But i dont really like the feeling if the person who help me EXPECT me to keep saying thank u, keeping sucking up and etc. I really dont like it that way.

Shrugs. Anyway, I am really clueless with typing out all the happenings, i shall post pictures and let pictures and captions do the talkings. It is easier for me that way, and clearer for you people too!

Oh, the Star Awards advert on tv (constantly) is kinda irritating me (perhaps you too). LOL.

Sis is baking coffee cake and cookies now, cant smell any better…WEEEEEE

IMG_20130318_6 Pardon the cheesy ‘Sunnies’ effect. My eyes were looking like -_-  Just wana share the picture of this cropped top/blazer. It is nice 🙂 by Bows & Feathers IMG_20130320_2

IMG_20130320_1

IMG_20130320_4 Super ugly first pic, more swollen lids pictures…My lids were swollen and reason is unknown. Took MC to rest at home and the right lid is now still a little swollen. Sadness but i like the part which the swell makes the eyes bigger. Sick but still, the lids r too thick and i can see how i might look if i ever ‘enlarge’ my eyes. Thus no cosmetic surgery for me ever. #haha IMG_20130322_2   Still swollen…

IMG_20130319_9 IMG_20130319_2 IMG_20130319_3 Did Scaling and polishing to remove nasty stains. Am i happy? Absolutely.
Perhaps i am saving for Teeth Whitening too!
Thank God i stopped committing myself to Smoking, never gona  get those nasty smoke stains ever again.
I do not have before and after pictures because i simply cant be bothered and i 4gt to take the ‘Before’ pics but just imagining it alone can be rather disturbing already.
The Pics above are not filtered.
yeap, scaling and polishing can make the teeth looks so much better already, imagine Whitening.. IMG_20130321_194601   My prayer this month is with Chris and her Dad, i sincerely pray for Mr Wong to get well and i am praying here a bold prayer. I know i have a couple of believer friends reading this blog, may i request for your prayers for Mr Wong, who is currently very ill. He small intestine is bleeding internally and if he doesnt go for the ops, he might be in huge danger. If he does, it might be worse as he is already very old. Please keep him in prayers.

Work in progress… IMG_20130321_201345   After visiting Chris and her Dad at TTSH, i went over to Gary’s clinic. Yes, Gary has opened his own clinic this March. I didnt help much, except for some simple chores, and i am still guilty of not going over ytd to help him with reception works. I knew i was in trouble when i couldnt sleep the night before 😦 Sorry Gary!

Yea, his clinic is relatively new and thus he needs more help. Though his clinic is new, he has rich experience in treating body aches, and guiding you to keeping fit. You may also read more of him at http://www.garytho.wordpress.com

  Also, i would like to ask…If you are looking to adopt a dog. You may consider Belle.

She is a 7 yr old Labrador. Her previous owner abandoned her heartlessly and look at the pic, she is apparently rather hurt and traumatized by that heartless woman.
If you are sure you can love this lovely doggie till she pass on, please pm me.
Belle is currently staying with Cel, and Cel has 3 dogs excluding Belle and she can barely handle all of them anymore.

Despite knowing that she will miss Belle dearly, she has no choice but to give Belle up for adoption as her friend (that heartless owner) will most probably put Belle to sleep should Belle goes back to her.

Belle is gentle, not violent, and unfortunately, she has skin disease (but she is ok under the right care). 575323_10151385346963721_1459245805_n   IMG_20130322_020549Sis (or Mum) bought these.

Loves` God Bless

p/s i was wrong, i managed to finish this post. gtg, Mon is looking at me frm a short distance. ARGH!

Just a Commoner

This is my Only Blog/ Site.

I DO NOT HAVE ANY FACEBOOK at the moment.

I DO NOT HAVE ANY BLOGSPOT.

I DO NOT WRITE OR POST ANY PICTURES OF ANY SORTS IN ANY OTHER AVENUES.

Reason why i am making this clear is beacuse it is irritating to see people using my pictures (as if i am Angelina Jolie) as theirs and started some FB.

Reason why i am making this clear is beacuse i have other blogs that uses my name (whether it is Valencia Faith, Valencia Faith Z, or Valencia Lesley) & using weird blog links that indicate ‘ME’ .

Terribly annoyed.

I mean, i aint those so called celebrity bloggers/ modelfoodlifestyleIT bloggers (they are al the same to me)
or those ‘Nuffnang-whatever-u-call-them’.

So, why do these?

Sometimes, i see it as haters, but i dont know where these haters come from.

Sometimes, is just pure imposters.

Whatever it is, i am just a simple commoner that shares my thinkings, values, life, and even good stuff/services i encountered without taking a cent from anyone.

Thus, please let me off and dont do all that to me, it is extremely frustrating….but honestly, if you (whoever u r la) still insist of creating fake accounts of me and all, i cant stop it right?
I hope you feel good at night when you sleep because it is kinda psychopathic and pathetic to do so lah.

v1

v2

Spell wrong even. Stalk also duno hw to stalk.
1) My surname not even Tan ( i hope tt person was really searching for his/her valencia TAN)
2) did i mention i hate people spelling my name as valenTia?

I din know so many people are interested in my life till i see all these searches, it makes me wonder who these people are.
Haha.

I mean, weird right.

If they are friends that have lost contact with me for a long time but were too embarrassed to contact me, hmmm. why not ?

If they are close friends, they would have visited my site frequently, so i reckon they do not need to search me over Google right? O_O

If they are haters, SPEECHLESS. (besides, i aint famous for your hatred)

If they are admirers, i would love to think so. hahaha. but i am still Speechless for this category.

If they are people who enjoy reading my blog, well, Thanks!

Not only that, even my friend is being googled, and thus, led to my blog.

Stalkers y u stalk my friend also???

But anw, wadever it is, i never believe that a blog is a private site, unless it is locked up. If it is open to public, anyone can do anyting and we cant do anyting abt it right?
You can watermark your photos and all but so? you cant sue as and when beacuse you are not some top blogger that has millions of views per day, you dont have the energy to be bothered much about all those ‘online mishaps’

HOWEVER, i still wish to say, this is the only place i write and rant.

If you are even interested. HAHA

Gona blog more the next entry, alot of new changes in my life! 🙂
