|C's birthday :)
||[June 15, 2008 | 04:16 PM]
Something that happens today gives your popularity a boost and that might mean that you're on top of the social scene for a little while! Use your new power for good, unless you're feeling sneaky.
Anyway, darling Charing's EIGHTEENTH yesterday was ultra-super-glamorous-fun. Went over to her place at 4+ and woke WH up. He looks very very scary with his eyes open like that (!!!), and he spouts off serious nonsense after he gets up. So got started on her hair, which took until 5.30 to do, hehe, and then I rushed my hair, and dragged my make-up bag with me into the car so I could apply on the way.
And I am still very proud of the fact that I can put on mascara in a moving car and not kill anyone (including myself) with the wand :)
Dinner was a little awkward, because I hardly know C's friends, but food and SC kept the conversation going. OOH and C's pretty flowers and cake!
I think she looks so radiantly gorgeous here! :) Hair's courtesy of yours truly.The matching Strawberry Daiquiris :)
Post-dinner, we adjoined to the bar lounge and promptly ordered the mildest drink we could think of for C - you're 18! :)
The medley of cocktails was astoundingly pretty! And the chips (nachos :P) were good! And apparently from Giant, according to Vanessa and Nat, I think. Anyway, the frozen Blue Marg I had was mild from all the ice, but I loved the salt! :) And I must source for Blue Curacao (pronounced Kur-a-sow, I finally found out :P)
Vanessa, Nat and I did the champagne selection thing after; we had no idea how to select champagne, so Vanessa asked the waiter for recs. Ended up with Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label tasting, and waited for the rest to come back from a rest-room trip before deciding on ordering a bottle. WH was apparently stoning in the men's room so we waited pretty long... Haha ordered a bottle.Funky pic of the server moving the champagne bottle around??? Candle mode took this.
A toast to our dearest :)People waiting to be the last to send C a birthday message...Posing with our umm stolen roses.
Out the door we go...
C's rents gave four of us rides home, so we squished ourselves in the back :) Qian's cut out here."Flash!"Qian's really light, so she didn't kill my lap. Or Charing's front.
Overall it was really fun! And thank you to Charing and her parents for the night :)
Some memorable quotes...
"Dots..." - Me
"Ness." - WH
"No but you can't form an L with one hand!" - Qian, with two hands joined in an L
"Um, Qian?" - Me raising my hand with the traditional "L"
Vanessa raises "L" with one hand in front of Qian's head :)
"All goods, no labels!" - Vanessa
|Uber - the project
||[June 13, 2008 | 09:29 PM]
SO I actually sent in an e-mail to the uber peeps about deleting the uber account... because darlings, slymanda.uber.com sounds err strange. And will leave a rather different impression on people compared to something boring but workable - amandasun.uber.com :)
While I wait for the administrators to delete that particular account so I can set up a more... savoury one, I will keep blogging here at lj :)
Anyway Leash, I left the pre NYEs 07 pix on flickr - find them here.
Today was slightly more productive.
I got up a little later than expected, grabbed a yoghurt to go, tossed on an outfit and screeched out the door in my booties, Jessica opening the front door and gate for me - when we realised that the lifts weren't working. Egad. So I changed into flats (oh how I've err kind of missed you!) and stomped down six flights of stairs.
OOH I HAVE MID-YEAR RESOLUTIONS :)
Aren't you proud of me?
One of them is to carry a light heart at all times. So I look upon the stomping down six flights of stairs as cool morning exercise!!! I'm getting very very err plump so umm yes, morning exercise! :D
Ended up cabbing to Raffles City, because buses have bad timing.
Met XP near Starbucks at the MRT side, and we went to BK because he hadn't had brekkie yet (sorry for making you wait so long!) SO he got some food and we opened up our laptops and... "Okay there's no wireless@sg here. Crap."
Anyway, we managed to discuss the 3D diagram pretty much! Like all we need to do is just construct it.
Let's use... paper mache! Environmentally friendly :D
So now I have to figure out how to paper mache again - it's been like err 5 years since I last touched it? Or maybe 3. Hmm.
I'm craving all those chic how-to-be-green books out now. I have Green Is the New Black but it's really... UK and not very universal.
Anyway, met Mum & Ella at the sausage place in Taka B2, then went to get a bottle of Fiji for my tummyache. Then we went to get Charing's present! SEKRIT - you'll find out tomorrow dear! :) HAPPY SEVENTEEN-AND-THREE-HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-FIVE DAYS LOVE! I can't wait for tomorrow!
And I'm in LOVE with this pair of Kate Spade shoes! Like shimmery black MJ pumps - the material reminds me of those coolio Jap origami papers we all used to love in primary school!
Kino stop next. SKINNY BITCH + RUMORS (SEQUEL TO THE LUXE) = YAY! Then off to the orthodontist. I have a couple of months to go, Ella has a month. MUM TOOK THEM OFF!!! Lol she's like, "It feels so gross."
OHHH AND I STAINED MY MJ BAG!!! Well, this stupid brown Clear Colour pen did. I'm dying, even though I managed to get the brown out, reducing the stains to a pretty rainbow of purple, pink and slight blues and yellows. And the bright sides are that the bag's only stained on the inside, and the slight stain on the outside is barely visible and on the back of the bag, not the front. Phew.
Got home, and read Time :) I am a well-read intelligent individual, or so I like to think.
And thank yous to my beloved parents for the overnight clearing gel (ick bacne), the awesome new PHD (portable hard drive ahahaha) and the earphones. Even though the earphones are kinda tacky.
I will be grateful for all I have.

SO I think I might be switching to Uber :P
It's a lot more fun than LJ, even though it's a LITTLE more complicated.
Anyway... no work and all play makes Amanda a very exhuasted sad little girl :(
Shopping @ On Pedder
Lunch @ Angus House
Dental @ Equity
Lunch @ Ajisen
Finished Chasing Harry Winston
Cleared out a lot of stuff in my room
I think I follow the original GG's definition of holidays too well - I slept at 6am, woke up at 3pm O.O oops
I feel a shame spiral coming on. Damn.
|I AM MAJORLY PISSED OFF
||[June 10, 2008 | 01:44 AM]
OMFG SHE REALLY DID BURN MY HAIR!!! I just showered and...
IT'S FUCKING FRIZZED UP AND STILL SMELLS BURNT. AND IT FEELS LIKE REALLY DRIED UP AND DEAD.
UGH THIS SUCKS ASS; I AM SO MARCHING BACK THERE AND DEMANDING ANOTHER CUT. I CAN'T LIVE WITH BURNT HAIR!

Hmm the Cobrasnake was in Singapore taking pictures for the World Music thingie like around the time of Rock Off Malaria - haha cool. And the Zouk thingie that took place after ROM was the Steve Aoki thingie and Cobrasnake was taking pictures then too.
Sorry, I just did heck a lot of searching online for Cory Kennedy. Cute look.
|Sleepoever @ C's & An Exhausting Day
||[June 09, 2008 | 06:04 PM]
Well, Saturday was immensely fun-filled. With Dad driving, we dropped my stuff off at Charing's and he sent us to JEC, where we had Macs for lunch (oh how glamorous) and talked there for quite a long time, finally realising the time was just right for ice-skating :)
It was tricky getting back on the ice, was very wobbly. And there was plenty of eye-candy, actually... influx of guys. Also, the music played was good old remixed pop (A*Teens, Britney, S Club etc) and it was like reliving our childhood a little.
Met Pet there! Girl has funky moves! Hugged her goodbye when we left about 4pm.
We decided to bus to Orchard, but ended up going to Vivo after a 45 minute bus-ride (I bumped my head against the glass, ouch). I was very tempted to give in to my Carl's Jr french fry cravings, but Charing stopped me, and we indulged in MAC buying (ooh la la, we shared the new Naughty Nauticals shell-shiny lipstick in Port Red - the best red lippie we've found so far, and Charing also got a blush in Foolish Me, bright apricot) and birthday present shopping with candy bits mixed in. A last stop to Candy Empire for sleepoever treats (yay for Red Rock Deli) and a sunglassed exit, to the bus-stop for a 25 minute wait for the elusive 855.
Wes had just returned from HK, his flight delayed due to the bad weather (where cars can't even get on the highway in HK???). Haha was good to see him.
Dinner was good! I love the salmon and the chicken :P
We didn't snack out on Haagen Daz, but we did eat the Pods (mmm) and I ate my Honey Almonds (new favourite healthy snack). Chilled out like crazy until 3am :P
Woke up next morning with pounding in my head.
We all went for lunch at Imperial with my family, and I made several trips to the bathroom, one of which resulted in err throwing up everything I had consumed at lunch. Bad. Gross. But I felt much better.
Mum and Dad wanted me to go home and rest, but I refused, and went for the cut at HM. While hair was being washed, felt a little ill because of the neck position, and freaked the hair-washer out :P Received awesome head massage from her after that though. Cut was good, but styling? Carol burnt a portion of my hair! There was something deeply wrong with the hair straightener she was using to curl my hair and it went crazy after a while. It burnt a towel!
So yuck, went over to Monsoon where Betty salvaged the "lui yun" hairstyle a little for me - I changed it later on to suit my own tastes. Gosh it's impossible for hairstylists to actually give you what you want. THIS is why I do my own hair.
Anyway, big fight in the car with the rentals on the way to Mel's... will not get into any details. At Mel's, only Ziyang was there, and there was a lot of sound from the NCC camp at Chye... whatever Sec School opp Mel's. I don't know how she lives like that.
More people, and the pizzas came (SIX, and I think Sharry eventually ate one entire pizza). It was really chill, with a little catching up, and LOTR Two Towers. I'm still lost in the saga and I doubt I'll ever get over the phobia. At 10pm, rentals came to pick me up and gave Sharry, Beu and Bong a ride to Bugis.
The chill class gathering was right for the kind of day I'd had :) Can't wait for next Sunday's thing, although I'll have to do a Father's Day Brunch, not dinner... Or else go for an early dinner and then head to JR's for the party.
Today I woke up at 2pm. Head's a little freaked out by yesterday still.
