Great. There goes my sexy hand.

Was recently lemming for a new hand cream to keep on my office desk, and since I couldn’t afford Crabtree & Evelyn on my measly salary (cough), I turned to the self-proclaimed “natural” Korean brand Skinfood.

Purchased the Gold Apple Hand Balm (RM25.90) cause the scent was delish and the packaging was too cute for words.

Really inconvenient (being a tub instead of a tube which is just an ‘e’s worth of difference wtf lame), but still, too cute!

sf

Balm was wokay, sunk in pretty quick, but scent turned out to be a bit sickly and it didn’t really moisturize much.

Used it constantly for 3 days and waddaya know.

Shit happened.

1

Discovered tiny skin-coloured little bumps ALL OVER my palm! Like seriously, all over!

Sadly, my dingdong camera/self failed to capture the full magnitude of this disastrous travesty wtf. Oh wellz.

At first glance, you would think it was an allergy right?

However, the bumps aren’t red or itchy or inflamed in any way plus they’re strangely only on my right hand.

Another speculation is that it’s due to friction from driving cause I use my right hand to hold the steering wheel. And the side of my palm has loads of bumps cause it rubs against the paper when I’m writing. Perfectly logical, no?

A third, and ever so slightly inane explanation, is that my steering wheel is crawling with bacteria which happen to lurves ze apple flavór hence an infection wtf.

Action Plan:
To perform a rechallenge test to confirm if it is indeed the fault of SKINFOOD YOU BASTARD!

Rechallenge test:
To stop using SKINFOOD YOU BASTARD until the ohsosexy bumps subside, and then reintroduce it. If the bumps resurface, a causative relationship is thus confirmed.

And the worse thing about Skinfood is that they don’t include a list of ingredients on their labels, so really, they could be mashing up tiny little puppies into body lotion and covering up with some delicate scent called “Sunkissed Strawberry” for all we know (this is not a joke, my working experience has taught me that it’s an evil world out there kids).

Puppies are natural what.

Shun’s 24th @ JyoRaku

As usual, without fail, Shun requested for her birthday dinner to be held at some Jap place. Again. Geez. At least we can say she’s consistent! Consistently eating the same stuff. Consistently late. Consistently not charging her handphone. Lolz.

Anyhuu, we were supposed to dine at Rakuzen at SS15 (I think it’s actually SS16, but since SS15 is more famous, everyone thinks it’s SS15 wtf) but since Uncle Alfie wasn’t around nobody thought of making reservations and we ended up getting booted out.

But since we’re such quick thinkers (yupyup), we bounced next door to Jyo Raku!

Which lo and behold, is an exact photostat copycat ciplak-ed version of Rakuzen!!! The sliding door looked exactly the same and had the same “press here to open” automatic button thingy. Presumably to con patrons into thinking they were in Rakuzen, me thinks. Even the toilets were in the same place haha.

Yun said the white walls made for an ugly background, so I did some ‘redecorating’.

I don’t know them. They’re just furniture.

And after that I know she sengaja asked me to hold the camera instead so that MY face would be the fat one wth.

Yen, Bilin and Shun.

Are they:
1. Strangling Bilin?
2. Trying to save Bilin from choking???

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHUN!

May we not have to eat Japanese again next year!

Norwegian Fisherman Have It GOOOOD!

I’ve always been on the look out for a good hand cream – one that has minimal stickiness plus a goooood dose of moisturization (is this a proper word?).

Tried Nivea, St Ives, L’Occtupus etc and all were BAH.

Recently, during one of the many hours which I spent staring at beauty products lined up on Watson’s shelves (I work there ahem), I decided to pick up Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Hand Cream.

The only active ingredient I can spot is a mega dose of glycerin.

3

This isn’t a new product; in fact I’ve know about it for years and years. Just never got down to buying it cause I was always under the impression that it was costly. Which it is not btw. Or maybe I was just a lot poorer back then heh.

Original price was about RM12++, but thanks to the ongoing Watson’s sale, I bagged it for RM10.80.

The ONLY hand cream which wants to be associated with fishermen.
2

You know they’ve done REAL testing when the label specifies “17 hours” of moisturization, instead of simply falsely claiming to last 24 hours or things like that.

On top of that, they claim that you can use it on elbows, knees, face and LIPS. Now, that got me excited. Instead of paying RM8.88 for 4g of Palmer’s sucky Cocoa Butter lipbalm (which I recently did), why not pay RM10.80 for a whopping 56g of hand cream which multitasks as lipbalm? SCORE!

5

The texture is like a thick gel (I would say sperm-like teehee) and the scent is yucky. Better get the scent-free version if you plan on using this on your lips. And you only need a tiny bit – they claim that one tube lasts 200 applications.

This is my thumb, all icky with dry skin.
6

And this is my thumb after using the hand cream.
7

I used the cream overnight on my hands and lips, and although the cream was dried up by the next morning, my lips and hands were totally soft and the dry skin was gone!

Aside from discovering my Holy Grail hand cream, I also found a new cheapo nail polish which wants to make me throw away all my Elianto, Revlon, The Face Shop and Sally Hansen polish away.

After one coat – smooth and almost opaque.
8

Sasatinnie – from Sasa. Yeah, the name is a tad silly.
9

Priced at RM8.90 (before sales), it’s almost double the price of the dirt cheap RM5 Elianto ones. But it’s waaaay worth it. The brush is small and short, which makes it much easier to control. The formulation is pigmented and fluid, so it goes on smoothly.

Two wonderful discoveries woots.

SCORE!

Kena BANG then kena CON =(

Ever notice how most guys like to be READY (Selalu Sedia wtf) and ON THE GO and tend to watch oncoming traffic at a junction/roundabout INSTEAD of the car in front of them?

Like this faceless guy here, who is totally not looking at the purple car in front of him.
8

Me? I never bother looking at the oncoming traffic as long as there’s still a car in front of me. Developed this habit after hearing many many many stories of how people ter-bang the car in front of them because they assumed the driver in front has telepathy and will move their ass at will.

And after the crash, they will curse the other driver and call him LEMBAP!

Was on my way home from work when I discovered I am one of those lembap drivers.

Don’t recall exactly when this was, around 2 weeks ago I think.

There I was, at the junction, waiting for the car in front of me to turn out into the main road.

After he managed to squeeze through traffic, I slowly made my way to the edge of the road, saw an oncoming bird/plane/Superman/Pajero, decided not to die and stepped on the brakes.

Something like this lah. Bird/plane/Superman/Pajero in blue. I’m the pink car of course.
7

And of course, the bugger behind me ran straight into my ass.

When we got down to gaduh, the bugger berani say that it was my fault because I “suddenly brake“.

Excuse me!!!! Even if I “sudden brake” when I was moving at like 10km/hr, I’m sure any moron would have a fast enough mental capacity to also sudden brake right! Unless:
a. He’s a retard.
b. He was sticking to my ass.
c. He was NOT LOOKING AT MY CAR.

So anyhuu, after that he told me to calm down and stop yelling at him and conned me into accepting RM100 in compensation.

Which shows how much of a retard I am as well. So now I’m lembap and a retard. How sad.

My kangaroo bar was gone-case, so I got the MAN to do the huffing and puffing and unscrewing for me.

In the dark, no less.
1

I helped hold the flashlights! Not in this pic tho, busy snapping photos.

And one kangaroo bar less, this is how my poor SLK’s backside looks now:

At first he gave me his number and seemed quite willing to pay whatever balance was necessary to fix my car.

But after I told him that it would cost RM280, he started the whole tale about how it was my fault cause I “sudden brake”.

Cibai.

How also you bang my backside, you pay lar!!!!

Only thing is I don’t really know much about him, so I can’t exactly drag him to court (lembap and dunggu, cannot save lah me).

Jessica Simpson + Paris Hilton aka the Dumbest Blonde on Earth.
Paris-Hilton-Jessica-Simpson--24922

These are the details I have of him so far:

English name: Francis.
Brother’s name: Law Wai Keong (gave me his brother’s name card wtf)
Email: lwlik_1991@hotmail.com

Thus the sleuth in me deduces that his full name is Francis Law Wai Lik and he is 19 years old (still got the P sticker on his car samo).

Sent him photos of the damage so he can assess if I’m indeed trying to con him. As if I got nothing better to do than to try and squeeze you for money.

Haih. Damn swei.
