Let’s talk about this topic today in this post. It has been ages that I have a sponsored blog post. I used to like to try products, I still do but I preferred to buy them myself. Before my other beauty blogger friend start bombing me, I will be giving a disclaimer. I am not saying all the people who get sponsors lied about their products, most of my bloggers friend out there who are honest and hold a good integrity in their blogging. I wouldn’t say I am an expert in blogging, my english sucks (I had bad my grammer and limited vocab list.) but that doesn’t stop me from blogging as I really put in effort in all my post and I am proud of it. I do snake some post at times but I never snake a review post.
The main reason why I was so pissed that I even have a post regarding this is because of a newbie blogger asking for freebies. I am usually a peaceful person but I detest newbie blogger asking freebies. They are the one spoiling bloggers image and make us like some greedy person. Of course, this is not the first time I see such thing. I had ever see before GW openly asking hair sponsors. (Dun ask me who GW is, those who are in the beauty blogging industry should know who I meant) But today, I got pissed because this person, Aqeysha Muhammed started faming Malaysia’s Etude House.
How can someone be so shameless?!?
Decided to fame Etude House for not reply!?!
These are the screenshot that was captured by my phone with regards to what this person did. The first photo is her later request to ask for sponsorship. Out of curiosity, I clicked and I saw her blog only have 7 post. 6 of which was just written on September. *give her a round of applause* The next picture was that she complained Malaysia’s Etude House did not reply her?!? Honestly, 2nd photo was a older comment of hers and there are also a few other comment that Malaysia’s Etude House don’t reply to her but see her changed in attitude?
This is a classic example of cheapo to the max.
If she is so pissed with Malaysia’s Etude House, then why bother to ask for sponsorship? For most bloggers, if we disliked certain brand, we will just not blogged about it. It doesn’t matter to us at all because there are just so many similar brands around this market. Why stooped so low? It is such a disgraced to have people like this having the title of a beauty blogger. Many of us work hard and published post. I am not saying it is wrong to ask for sponsorship but not when you only have 7 post in your blog. If you are a newbie beauty blogger reading, please take a minute to think why did you blog? If you blogged because there are freebies then you shouldn’t have start blogging in the first place. Even xiaxue took sometime to make it to be Singapore most influential bloggers before people start sponsoring her. Let me say something blunt, if you are not famous or have your own style of blogging then who are you to ask for a sponsor? Do you seriously think brands would even reply u? Just take a minute to think about what I have said.
I got so many thing that I want to share with u guys but I just don’t have the time to sit down, edit the photos and blog!!
In case you wonder, I do edit my blog photo to firstly make the white balance look better or in some lifestyle blog entry make myself look slimmer. When blogging about beauty product, I only edit my fat face and not my flaws. I do not blog dishonestly. I have high expectation in photo on my blog which is also why I take longer time to blog as compare to other blogger.
My project is finishing maybe by next month end and it might or might not be busy for me from next week. I have actually edited photos for 2 blog entry so the post will be out by This weekend.
Just a preview… See the photos below:

Thank you for reading~
Totally inspired by heartifb for this post. I was reading back my blog and I discovered, I became to someone who has a blog. I am no longer so much of a blogger. Honestly being a blogger is tough, especially if you have a job like mine that worked late or irregularly. It makes blogging even harder. However, the most important reason is my passion for blogging especially beauty blogging died off. I still love beauty products and still buy the latest ones but Kk has been complaining that I am not using them and let them expire. As much as I love buying them, I can’t finished all of them. I spend lots of time editing one single review blog bec I wanted it to a review that is honest, truthful and pretty. That’s when I reduced blogging beauty products. Like Karma, once you procrastinate once, you will never get it done.
However, I will be back with reviews whereby I have tried some time ago. I don’t want to waste my life off. However, my blog will not be blogging only beauty. I will be adding food and my life. I hope to get more connection with my reader. I am opened to negative ones too. If you think my blog bored you. I appreciate your feedback.
This marks my new start of this blog, though I don’t blogged much, I do managed to get some traffic so I decided to show my current traffic and from now on. I will blog at least 4 times a week!!
This is my blog’s traffic from nuffnang.
I decide to blog about how I am feeling since last night when I read Audrey’s blog post. Never in my life, I tear-ed while reading blogs. Most of the time I will not want to read about sad things. I was on the phone with Nikki. I was reading the first few line and I stopped. I know I cannot continue reading, I know I will cry if I continued. After hanging up the phone at about 2am this morning, I continued the blog post. Despite controlling so hard, still few drops of tears fall out.
I know I did not undergo the pain that Audrey is suffering but my heart was so in pain. The last time I felt this was while watching one litres of tears (that’s the one and only drama I cried like mad), I felt that kind of helpless both Tim and Audrey are feeling. I also went to research about Audrey’s condition and to my horror. This preeclampsia is so dangerous to both mother and baby. Anyone interested can just wiki it.

I am praying for her since she first admitted to hospital. Using the secret law, decided to have all of you who is reading to just pray for her too. Hope that she and fighter can be safe. Please let me borrow a bit of the power of secret to pray for her to give birth to fighter healthy and she can be recover well!!
Update (25/08/2013): Audrey is discharged from the hospital this week (Been busy and no time to update) but fighter still in the hospital since he is a premature and it is best that he stayed there. I am so happy everyone is fine and was worried that time while I blog this entry weeks ago. Congrats to Tim and Audrey for a new born boy!
I wrote something about my work some time back. I really haven’t been blogging recently because I am exhausted to do so. Though I have successfully cleared my degree but my full time job seem to get more busy. My progress of work is not even 2/3 done and it is going to be midnight. (at the time of blogging, it is 11pm) This time is really late, my usual working time was 8 plus but now it is like really late. I am exhausted while typing this entry.
I work in construction line and I am quite used to working late but this is the first time I work till so late. Feeling speechless because of stupid builder. I am pissed with myself sometimes for being such a lousy good person. In order to prevent delay in the builder work, I still give the green light to proceed with the work. I absolutely know it will end up this way so I shall stop complaining since I am the cause of this myself.
So do you all know the reason why there is no lady working in construction site now?? The environment is harsh, the people are rude at times, your boss usually more demanding and hot tempered and your working time is much longer than normal working people. Many Singaporean do not have the determination and will to work in this kind of condition. The least you expect a lady working under such condition. This is the reason this industry is flooded with foreigner. Many people thought only architect is the one building the house but the actual fact is, it is the whole team of engineers and contractor who make it possible. But usually the credit always go to the architect, engineers and contractors are always the one to clear the shit.
Only at times like this I feel restless so do pardon my complaint and thank you for reading~♥♪
