Blog Tag

I was tagged by S. of the charming bilingual blog Drama & Makeup. Thank you!

The Rules:
  1. Thank the person that nominated you and give them a shout out on your blog with a link to theirs.
  2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Send on the award to 15 other bloggers whose blog you love and appreciate and then let them know they won the award.

7 random facts about me:
  1. I don't like to go out much. I prefer to stay at home, and do whatever I feel like when inspirations strikes -- sew, play with makeup, watch TV, cook, eat, read and write beauty/sewing blogs.
  2. I've been blogging since 2003, but most of my IRL friends don't know about it, because...
  3. I'm very shy. It's only this year that I started commenting on blogs. And I'm too shy to tag other bloggers, so if you'd like to do this post, please consider yourself tagged! :)
  4. I do not like my line of work, but I've been doing it for over 13 years and I'm too scared to change careers (too scared of not earning enough dough to fund my hobbies).
  5. Our cat Scampi has the softest fur, softer than my Hakuhodu brush. I like brushing her tail against my cheek when she sits on my lap.
  6. I'm from the Philippines. But I lived in Singapore for three years before moving to Sydney for work four years ago.
  7. I made my own wedding dress, and it took me almost a year to finish it. But I love how it turned out!


I did this tag in lieu of an update since last week was rather uneventful apart from the food fest that was Chinese new year lunch at the in-laws. I may have to give up the weekly updates altogether as my non-activity feels rather embarrassing.

There's so many great review and FOTD posts this week, but my favourite posts are:


  1. Wow, you made your own wedding dress?? That's amazing!

  2. @dempss01 Thanks! Sewing my wedding dress was stressful that I turned to makeup for stress relief. But in the end it was all worth it!

    Photos of the finished dress are on my sewing blog
