Deepavali 2012 and the trip to Genting.

It is now almost one month after Deepavali/Diwali is over. Only now, I get the time to post on my celebration here.

To be honest, I feel this years’ Diwali is not like my previous years’ celebration. We had a very simple celebration, but yet one of the most memorable one we have ever had.

This year, all the three of us (my brothers and I) have our own income. We spent our money to help our parents. I bought my Dad two shirts (one for his birthday which was on the 31 of October and another one for Diwali), I paid for my mum’s saree. I didn’t have the time to buy my brothers and dogs something.In fact, I didn’t even have the time to shop for clothes for myself! Its’ because I was so much occupied with my production at work.

My dad managed to get a goat to be cooked for the guests during the open house. Yes, a goat. We were asked if we wanted the goats’ head and blood. My mum said a BIG no. My father’s friend helped him to skin the goat so that all we have to do is to chop the mutton into edible sizes. That alone, took all of us the whole day to handle. It was really tiring(plus backache!) for me because on the day before, My mum and I went to Bukit Jalil, Masjid Jamek and Brickfields to get some last minutes stuff. And we took only public transports to cover all the three areas.

On the day, we went to temple in the morning. I was rather pissed because the tailor lady hadn’t sewn my saree blouse! Luckily, I have a new suit of Punjabi Suit which my mum bought for me from India at 2009. So, I wore that to temple. I liked that suit so much eventhough it is a simple one. Back home, we all had our breakfast. Thosai and mutton. After that, cooking session started. The whole cooking thing ended at 4.30pm, just when my father’s friends arrived. They were very helpful, the helped us with the tables. By the way, my father had two tents fixed to cater the guests.

Since that up to 12am at night, we had guests non stop coming. I even had one of my BFF to attend, Nailil and her boyfriend Ed. They brought along their friend as well. For the dinner, I wore my favourite peach dress.

Of course, liquors were served as well. Together with me, two girls from my neighbourhood and our mums joined us to a bottle of white wine. My mum didn’t have her glass, she don’t drink. So, all of us had a small portion of wine, before we girls went over to join the guys( our brothers and their friends) with the fire crackers. It was so much fun! I haven’t had the chance to play for a long, long time.

The whole event ended at about 2 something after my mum and I cleared all the mess and arranged the things as they were before. And the next day, we all woke up nearly 10am.

Truly an enjoyable celebration. What makes it even more fun? My dad brought us to Genting! That, gonna be in the next post :)


Deepavali morning. I love the way my hair is and the glow factor on my face.


Just because.


My BFF and her BF and their friend.


Till then, my short post on the meaningful celeb.

Etude House Mini Haul

Yesterday, Dylla and I went to Queensbay Mall to look for some stuffs. As usual, we will browse through shops and end up commenting on the sales girls and the sky high prices.We tried our luck at eating sushi at Sushi King. Not bad, we can actually swallow them down, In fact, they were quite delicious. We have already decided on what to eat on the next trip to Sushi King.After that, had our dinner at McDonalds. We eat ALOT, yes.

Before satisfying our taste buds, we went to Etude House to see if they have any promotions going on for their face masks. Our luck, they are having a promotion right now, up to the 25th of December!

I quite liked their face mask.They don’t break me out nor irritate my skin. They make my skin to feel smoother and brighter. My personal favourite will be the Lemon mask.

Anyway, back to the haul, the masks were sold at rm15 for 5 mask. Dylla took 2, the Royal Jelly one and the Lemon mask. I took the Pearl Extract,Pomegranate and Aloe mask.

Of course,we didn’t just stop at the mask shelf. We schemed through their other product, and me, I headed to the nail polish shelf. I saw that they are having some kind of promotion. Don’t really remember the prices but the SA told me that I’ll get 10% off for one item, 15% if I buy two and 25% off if I buy 3 items. We both were broke ATM, so we said no.

Moving to the next shelf, we saw that they are selling different types of polishes at RM5/bottle. Obviously, I had to try them, right? Besides, there was this peachy polish which I have been hunting for god knows how long! The SA tried the color on my nails, I asked for Dylla’s opinion and yes, I grabbed it! Then, I saw this mint colored polish. The same thing happened and I grabbed that as well. Then the SA, knowing my nail polish fetish kind of thing (is there such thing??), she showed to me this purple glittery polish which is equally lovely! Sighing out, I told her that I’ll take that as well. She wanted to show me another color and I said no! I can’t afford to buy more than what I have already picked. God, such an impulse buyer, I am!

The SA was very friendly to us, and we liked her so much. We liked her even more when she gave us a generous number of free gifts! We both got a sample-sized toner+moisturizer kit and Dylla got a few BB cream samples. I didn’t get/take the BB cream as the SA told me that they don’t have the right tone for me. To compensate that, she gave me another toner+moisturizer kit. So generous of her!

Let the picture do it’s talking next.
