Majulah Singapura

We've built a nation with our hands
The toil of people from a dozen lands
Strangers when we first began, now we're Singaporean
Let's reach out for Singapore, join our hands forevermore

It has been a week since we celebrated National Day and the songs are still playing in my head. You can say I have a thing for these patriotic songs. Even the unpopular 2014 song, One Singapore. Since Home, composing a good National Day song is one uphill task. Doesn't help that people are so damn hard to please nowadays. So, kudos to those who've tried.

The parade was beautiful despite not being able to see the full firework display, sang myself hoarse. Got emotional over the tribute for LKY and I'm so so proud of everyone who took part. I really ought to volunteer and be part of it one day. Oh! Also learned how to remember it's bersatu before berseru in the national anthem. The 'A' comes first!! Can't believe it took me this long to find out.

The Nom Box - May 2015

Trying out a new video camera and format for future unboxing videos. The camera is secondhand Handycam, an old model but a pretty cool upgrade from an integrated webcam :)

In my excitement, I forgot to take pictures of the desserts untouched. Hence no still images of the food. Eeps!!

Next month should be my last box and I'm still undecided if I want continue my subscription because no one's sharing the food with me!! BUT this month box was super delicious and there are more mouths at home now since my sister and her family moved in.

Memebox haul part 2

I'm back with the remaining boxes!! Hmm... I like them better than the first two, more my type with the cutesy and somehow more practical items. Judging by the numbers of things I'm keeping to use, it's safe to say I'm good in the skincare and makeup department for the whole year.

Speaking of which, happy labour day! It has been an awful lousy week for me, feeling pretty frustrated with life in general. I just want to quit life and hide inside cave. Maybe a she-shed.

Read about these sheds on my Facebook feed and they look like a perfect hideaway for my troubled soul. I look forward to a better week/month/year!! Trying to stay positive by thinking of things to be grateful for...

Now, back to the haul.

The Nom Box - April 2015

My subscription is still ongoing but I hadn't had time to talk about the last three boxes I've received. Hmm... I'm going to try my hardest to mention my last three Nom Boxes before I discontinue the service. The idea of subscribing to this was to share the desserts but I always end up eating everything because nobody was eating them and their shelf life is really short.

For example, two out of four items in the April's Nom Box are best consumed on delivery day and another within two days. That's a lot to finish! Delivery was later than usual this month due the rain but it's okay as I was informed beforehand via SMS.

Memebox haul part 1

Have you heard? Memebox no longer ships to Singapore :(

It was sad day for my shopaholic soul when I found out... Really quite unfortunate as I enjoyed their service and was looking forward to getting more quirky boxes. Memebox has operations in Korea and China, so I'm hoping either one will extent their shipping service to us soon. If you're a fan of K-beauty, fret not as there are plenty of Korean beauty brand stores around or shop at Qoo10!

This is so long overdue. Eeps! I received the boxes in October, filmed the unboxing in January and uploading now. Was wondering if I should still bother but since I've done quite a bit already, ah heck, let's do it!

I've split this haul to two parts in case it gets too lengthy. With that, let's start with the Halloween and Head-to-toe Memebox!
