It's My Life! - In Random Snippets

Thought I'd just sit down here and really think about what I've done since the last week of November…

The last week of November was completely hectic!
I don't remember sleeping at all, burning the midnight oil to prepare schedules, emcee scripts, rushing out blog posts, host events and meet clients.

Work. Work. Work. Work.
But $$$$$$$$$$$

*Inserts Mega Heart Shape*


One of the most unforgettable experience was enjoying myself at Budweiser Made For Music Festival 2013! It's one of the biggest event I ever hosted so far for the year.

With this experience, I hope to handle bigger crowds and more extravagant events in the coming year!
Thank you Julian WBudweiser and especially Intune Music School for this wonderful collaboration.
I seek to improve my hosting skills and build up on my confidence on stage.

Here's a BIG THANK YOU to Heritage Hair for your utmost support to style my hair up for this 2-day event despite FULL house at the saloon on both days and all of them had skipped meals.

So here's to Sandra, Kenn and Joyce from Heritage Hair:

PS: Sandra, thank you standing in the rain while trying to hail a taxi for me. 
How can I ever thank you enough for your kind gesture?

Then there was this weekly Anlene Shows I hosted for the entire month of November via A Dam Funky Talents.

For friends who have been asking about the credibility of A Dam Funky Talents…

A Dam Funky Talents has opened up many hosting opportunities for me this year, in fact the most. I've made a group of wonderful friends in ADFT (Adam, Jade, Yuko, Qin Jie…) and so blessed to learn and grow up with them in terms of stage presence and roadshow-hosting techniques. So if you're considering joining ADFT as their talents, please do!

For the rest of you who are interested in doing events too: singing, dancing, acting, hosting, mascots, brand ambassadors, magicians etc, look out for more postings on ADFT's Facebook Page.

They are constantly calling for auditions!

With my loved ones.

They say when you work hard, you gonna play harder!

That being said, I went to Montigo Resorts for my 2nd time within a month!
The first time was with #MyDreamGuy and I came back posting an article on 20 must-know travel tips to Montigo Resorts.  It's has almost 3000 reads and counting, read it if you haven't!

This is my FIRST family overseas trip in years with my mummy and her two sisters.
In the past, we'd hold gatherings to bowling centres, Malaysia trips, beach outings but as the cousins grew up, the gatherings got lesser and lesser.

This is a small one but definitely 'gian'-ing for more with my own siblings and cousins!

I'm tearing while looking at this group shot we took together.

Life hasn't been all smooth-sailing for all of us for the past decade.
It's such a rare opportunity that we can get together like this once more.

I don't really know how to show my love for my family as expressively as I could towards my friends, but I know I really love and treasure them so far.

Our parents have aged so much, nonetheless still energetic and ever fun-loving.
I wish that the cousins and I can sensibly take over the initiative to plan family gatherings and trips, passing on the closely-knitted bond that our parents' generation have built.

Superb dinner which was on Aunt Lina.
Thank you!


In case you wish to know,
I got the Pio Cesare Moscato for $50+ at a wine parlour located at B1 of Tampines One Shopping Mall. The last bottle that day.

That almost 'seh' look.
I'm in batam safe with family, who cares if I were wasted for the rest of the night?

The next morning, Mummy bought me this beautiful floral beach ball which totally made my day!

Got this black high waist bikini skirt at my younger sister's bikini shop for about $20+ - MilchScape.

17 DECEMBER 2013.
I'm not the best elder sister in the world, but I'd do my best to protect and give you the best I can give.
Happy Birthday, lit Sis.
May all your birthday wishes come true and your business continue to prosper!

On the other hand, my naughtiest and funniest uncle who dote on us so much recently encountered breathing difficulty and was warded in the hospital. He was discharged after two days and currently back at work.

Uncle Jeffrey is a chef and I love his fried rice!

I wish Uncle Jeffrey will be in the pink of health and don't overwork yourself.
Get well soon!

大舅, 你是我的开心果。

Hmmm… I should really do up my family tree and introduce my beloved family members. :)


Spent 69734650937098999 days with #BubbleLeong.
It's only fair!

I was away so often for the whole of November and could only imagine how lonely he was at home, afraid of thunder and loud noises...

I couldn't stop laughing when I had nowhere to put him but in the clean laundry basket for awhile because the floor was wet and I had to wash the dishes. When I came back to him after my chores were done, he gave me this awwwwww look:

#BubbleLeong ah #BubbleLeong.
Any cuter you'll become a stuff toy and Santa Claus will come kidnap you for a giveaway next christmas.

Cuteness Overdose.
Sooooo adorable I have to give you MORE more more more more more love.
I love you, little one.

There's a compilation of his most adorable/epic/special moments on his Facebook page, once a day. Visit his Facebook page for more videos and photos!
Serves as a happy pill and doggie-diary for me.

As much as I can, I'd exercise.
Downloaded a few apps to keep track of my fitness including this for my pushup routines:

Of course, I finally went for my long-anticipated Ice-skating session with #MyDreamGuy and his dance friends. That's exercise too!

Currently reading up about Atkins Diet and trying to stick to it to see if it really works.

If you've heard about Atkins Diet, it's a flexible diet plan where you can feast on meat, eggs, cheese, vegetables and more!

I've lost 2KG in 4 days.

Mint on Atkins

I'm still testing out if this diet works
So be sure to come back for more information soon!


My life.
My passion.

Attended @RuthMiaoRu's EP Music Showcase and I'm so proud of her!!!
It's her first EP where she showcases 4 of her self-compositions (own songs).

It's her dream come true!

What Miaoru did simply motivates me to hold on to my dream and work really really hard towards it. If I work hard enough, my dream will come true one day too.

Here's one of her songs which has been playing on Yes 933:


Hey, I met Collin Chan (my secondary school senior) at Miaoru's showcase!

#MyDreamGuy Colin Chang meets Collin Chan.

We celebrated a VERY early Christmas with #MyDreamGuy and his Taekwondo friends last week.
The gifts we got were so thoughtful- a precious moment diffuser and a power bank.

Time With #BFF

I can never do without my Bff Silver, never ever!
She's my problem solver, listener, ever-smoochie, everything a bff could ever ever be.

Photo taken from: Silver Ang's Blog

So, we decided to support and accompany her to a blood donation session.
She donate blood whilst we wave pom-poms!
*Also testing out if Colin Chang will faint if he sees blood lol*

Zir is so courageous and calm throughout!
She's blogged about her blood donation experience at Woodlands Civic Centre so go read about how you can make a blood donation today.

Time spent with her is never enough!

Oh yeah, met Jac Jac and her son Dylan for the first time.
So bubbly and expressive her little Dylan!

*pinch pinch your cheeks*


I'm influenced by CalvinTimo's idea of Cafe hopping around Kampong Glam.
More and more cafes are rising in the area. Besides, I'm always there every Monday for my singing gig at All About Eve Bar in Arab Street. So i don't mind trying a new cafe every Monday for dinner! If you see me and recognise me, say HI!

I AM Cafe was my first stop.

I was there with CalvinTimoAngieFenny and #MyDreamGuy to celebrate Calvin's belated birthday. The place used to be Mosi Cafe where they serve the best cous-cous, where did Mosi go now?!

Left clockwise: CalvinTimoAngieFenny, me, #MyDreamGuy

The ONLY thing I'd go back for would be their Rainbow Crepe Cake.
So if you're craving for a rainbow crepe cake, go to I AM cafe but as for the other food and cakes…..


Their rainbow cake is covered with a rich cream-cheese buttery cream that I like.
Despite the different colours of the cake, all layers have the same taste.


The rainbow crepe cake was special and quite yummy so I ordered one for my sis' birthday.

The cafe was closed on the collection day and someone called me in the morning and told me he'll be around the area to wait for me to collect the cake at 9PM. In the end, I waited more than an hour outside the cafe (from 9pm - 10.08pm) before a group of them came together to open up the shop to get my cake.

I was so late for my 10PM gig.

The cake was $70 but I managed to get a discount.
It didn't come with chocolate syrup but upon request (because they were late I guess), they gave me a finishing bottle to bring back.

C.A.D. cafe at 27 Haji Lane.
This is one cafe I'd definitely BE BACK.

Cosy, Yummy all-day-breakfast, affordable rates, friendly staff, happy customers, chillax…
Their food is made with so much passion.

It's a pity they don't serve full course meals except sandwiches and all-day breakfast.

SUPERB SMOKE SALMON FOR only $3.50 as add-on:

I'm drooling at my french toast again, yummy!

More cafe hoppings next week, it's a deal between #myDreamGuy and I!


Well, this HAS to be the best birthday(also Xmas) present ever!
What have I done to deserve so much love?!?!

I got another wish on my wish list strike off.
Getting my nose fillers done by Dr Zhang Yi Jun from The Face Aesthetic Clinic!

*cartwheels non-stop*

I'd be updating the FULL filler procedure with Dr Zhang with a video!
So if you wanna know what I've gone through and my experience on fillers, come back.

Sincerely thanks Silver for this for she's was there to witness, film and photographed down the process because I was so scared~
So loved.

Thank you for being there to keep me calm and cool, Zir.
She's always there to witness a major milestone in my life.

Thank you, bff.

Looks like Bubble Leong got his Christmas Present too - His new pram from MinuteManSG.
He is following the pram everywhere LOL.

We got this pram for $190 at Pets Station.

It can also be a pet carrier and a comfy bed for him.

I'll be back for my nose filler review with Dr Zhang this coming Monday so it'll take me awhile to blog but be sure I'll write about it so wait for my sharing okies!


Good night and Thanks for reading!
