I miss you terribly.
I simply cannot remember what I've been doing because I'm someone who's dependent on jotting down memories (that includes blogging) to help me remember the happenings in my life since 14 years old.
It seems like my hectic schedule between hosting and singing, school and personal life has kept me away from blogging. I'm going to have to set aside BLOGGING time from now on.
The next piece of surprising news shocked my soul out of me.
I swear this comes as my biggest surprise ever because news were going around that the #OMYSBA2013 award winners have been contacted for their chinese names a day before the actual event ceremony.
Apparently, I wasn't called up.
I can't believe my ears when my name was called to receive the Singapore Blog Awards 2013 Best JBL Pop/Music Blog Award that I stared in disbelief for almost 1 minute!

*Sorry Sze Ping, please forgiving me for grabbing this photo you tagged me on your Facebook. It's the only picture I got so far. Thank you!
Since we can't do a thank you speech that day, I'd like to do it here.
First of all, Thank you OMYsg for organising the SBA2013.
The past 4 years of my life (and counting) with OMYsg has been really fulfilling and fun!
All the travelling, eating, playing, contests, concerts, friends…
Doors of opportunities opened up for me and indirectly guided me towards this path where I can pursue my dream in music. Thank you for giving my blog such exposures to explore and learn, to meet new people and experience things I've never done before!
Thank you Judges!
Thank you for taking the time to read all our blogs.
Thank you VOTERS!
Your 30% meant so much to me and now a miracle has happened because you cared. I even know a few of you who have been diligently voting for me everyday and I mean EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. To each and everyone of you who has casted your previous vote for me, I'm so grateful to you and please know that I love you!
I will continue to work hard, and I mean extremely extremely hard, to improve myself in music and make effort, even if I'm busy like a madwoman who hasn't sleep for 7 days and 7 nights, to find time to blog and share my music journey with all of you.
But don't mind my amateurish music works please.
I'm a start up!
That is why I need this blog ma: to pen down and read about how I grew up with NO REGRETS in years to come.
ONE more quick update before I move on to the highlight of this blog post:
06 July 2013
4th July - 7 July 2013 - Have been busy celebrating MinutemanSg's Burstday for him with different groups of friends and family. Also, I spent the entire week planning for his birthday surpriseS~
Getting his birthday cakes(he's got 3 this year), organising his friends together, random last minute birthday celebrations here and there, catch up dinners after dinners… I'll share with you about his JB surprise birthday trip which happened today, right after I finish publishing all the back-dating blog posts!
Oh yes, I wanna show you lots and lots of photos I took in Sydney(June 2013) as well!
Also I've prepared an archive of music and singing recordings I did over the past 3 months to share with you.
There's so much to update!
See when I tell you I really miss blogging badly.

Here comes the highlight of my post:
I'm really proud of my younger sister, Joey Leong.
She has always been the fashionista in the family. I'm impressed with her DIY make-up techniques, her dress sense,the way she can watch a youtube tutorial and easily do up that hairstyle for you, the way she can keep herself in tip-top shape all the time.
Talents I NEVER had and never will.
Joey even has her own fashion boutique selling bikinis, slippers, accessories, bags and female apparels at *SCAPE Underground -- Milch! On top of that, she've just given Milch a brand new makeover just 2 weeks ago, sunshine and happy. I'll show you in the next Milch post, you'll see.
The chio-max bikini designs are those you HAVE TO OWN.
Classic, funky, tropical, sweet, romance, elegant and more, take your pick!
My twitter and instagram account (@MintLeong) shows about my new love for Milch's orange sodapop high-waist bikini. My next Milch post will be about these chio-max bikinis!
My Orange Sodapop:
Bags At MILCH
Her Multi-carrying-style bag (as the name of the bag hinted) allows you to carry this bag in different styles!
The combination of these different styles comes from the multiple buckles and the long bag strap so you can play around with the way you'd like to carry your bag on that day. The bag gives you different looks with every style changed, suited for different occasions.
Surprise your friends and colleagues with a new bag style everyday!
Here are a few styles I came up with for each day. I'm sure you'll be able to think of more.
For Monday: The Traditional school girl backpack.
Tuesday: The XXL school girl backpack.
Wednesday Style: Side-Sling
Thursday: Long strap Tote bag.
Friday: The 'HAND' bag.
Saturday: Casual Tote.
Sunday's style which also my favourite style: The one-side sling!
Yeah, you can enlarge it to Xxl too!
