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!

Am back!

Oops! Sorry for going MIA the last few months. Once school started + extra working hours during the festive period, everything simply went berserk! The funny thing is, after all that trouble, I'm failing my semester. Again.

Sometimes I wonder why I even bother. Studying, obviously, is not my thing. Or I've chose the wrong major and it has taken me this long to realize it. I wonder if there's any recourse to that. Really feel like quitting school and the allure of working full-time now is right now is so hard to resist! Yes, solely for the money.

With my home renovation coming up, I can't stop thinking about money. And on top of that, I have a ghost of wedding traditions haunting me, my sister will be moving in with us, I have to prep for my move and omg... We have so much stuff. How the hell are we going to accommodate 10 people under one roof? Judging by the amount of hair I'm dropping, I'm really overwhelmed.

On a separate note, yesterday was pretty disappointing. I placed an order for a tutu with Sonata in mid February but have not heard from them. As it was quite close to Chinese New Year, I figured they needed more time but seven weeks is really stretching it.

I went with a friend two weeks ago to check on my order and was simply told that it's not ready despite it's two weeks after the stated collection date. Okay, fine. I understand. Ballet exams are just around the corner and they could be rushing important orders.

My friend decided to get a tutu too and ordered one that day. So imagine my surprise when she told me that hers is ready for collection. Say what!

I tried calling them to check on my order but their line was always engaged. Hence, I decided to drop by the shop. After my friend messaged me, I sort of have this feeling that my order was left out and I was right. Le sigh~ I'm not taking the ballet exam but I'm learning the syllabus and thought it would be fun to get a tutu like how the examination girls are required to.

Tomorrow is the last syllabus class and I don't see the point of getting a tutu anymore. Since mine was forgotten and not made, I decided to cancel my order. I really rather get my money back but since Sonata don't do refunds, I ended up topping up the amount for a pair of pointe shoes. I eventually need another pair but damn... I rather have my white tutu okay? And will I get another legit chance to use one? Urgh!

On the bright side, my friend is such a darling. After hearing what happened and me being so ultra disappointed, she bought me a loaf of bread from Duke Bakery to cheer me up. Really appreciate it and so grateful for such a wonderful friend.
