Let's Talk/ World-AIDS Day 2013 #SomeoneLikeMeSG

Let's start talking / World AIDS Day

It's so weird. Just a few days ago, I was lying down beside Fai telling him how I think people in today's society don't have the courage to say or do what they want. You know, everyone is either so self-centered or so scared to face consequences that they rather just not do anything at all.

Honestly, ask yourself, If you're not happy about something and think you're being treated unfairly at work or school, would you have the courage to stand up against your boss or teacher? 

I think it’s about time that we Singaporeans should start having a more open mind and just talk about or do whatever we want. I mean, still following rules and regulations of course. But we just need to be more open so that certain issues in our society can be addressed and work on. 

Let's start with a topic that every single teenager not just in Singapore but also in the WORLD, talks about. Or rather, go through at some point of time in their lives. Sex and STIs. I remember back in secondary school when I always had to attend "Sex Talks" or talks about HIV/AIDS or abortion etc. I was from an all girls school hence, it was interesting because we are as a matter of fact learning more about the male species that we don't encounter much on a daily basis. Apart from it being interesting, it was pretty scary and thought provoking. 

Time after time, we hear stories of different girls in school "doing it for the first time" and I think that that is perfectly normal in today's society. Over time, as I grew a little older, the topic about "sex" can even be a very casual topic to talk about with my friends. And I guess during that time, the nation started getting a little more open minded about it. But not so much about HIV or AIDS. 

Yes there are people my age around me doing it, but have we ever thought of those who did it and didn't come out the way he/she wanted it to? We can say we did. But it’s not like we have the courage to talk to that person about it. What we do is, we gather behind that person and start a very common high school bullying act called -discriminating.

Up till today, I am certain that you're still afraid of coming into close contact with someone who is HIV positive. I know, because I am just like you and I feel that we have to put an end to this. We can get started with a campaign called #SomeoneLikeMeSG. Let's shape a world free from HIV.

So let's talk. 

Have you ever encountered anyone who is HIV positive or carries AIDS?  I have. Fai and I went to some gathering earlier this year and he pointed some person out to me, telling me that he/she's HIV positive. Of course I was afraid. Like everyone else, we always think that HIV or AIDS is able to transmit to another person via close contact (hug, handshake, sharing food, or kissing). 

IT'S ALL A MYTH GUYS!!! We need to learn the facts so that we can break the myths. HIV or AIDS can only be transmitted through blood transfusion, unprotected sex and from mother to baby during pregnancy and delivery. 

I think it is important to stay normal when we meet someone that has AIDS or is HIV positive. These people are just like you, fighting a battle in hopes of staying in good health. Your battle might not be HIV or AIDS, but I am certain that at least 6 out of 10 of us might have another sort of disease or illness to fight against. It may not happen now, but if it does, would you want people to constantly judge you? Or discriminate you? 

Like every illness, HIV and AIDS are treatable. With regular check-ups and following advices from professionals, a person diagnosed with HIV or AIDS can live normally. With the support of the people around them, like us, they will be more motivated to fight this virus and disease.

And for the rest of us, who are afraid of contracting HIV or AIDS, always remember, "prevention is better than cure". You can do your part in working towards a world free from HIV by practicing "ABCD"- A for Abstinence, B for Being Faithful, C for Correct And Consistent Use Of Condoms and D for Early Detection.

In 2012, another 469 Singapore residents were newly reported of HIV infection. About 93% of the new cases were males and 7% were females. Nearly 90% of these cases reported in 2012 were between the ages of 20-59, with 63% being single, 23% married and 10% were divorced/separated. This brings the total number of HIV infected residents to 5,775 as of end 2012. Of the people infected, 61% with HIV do not have the virus under control
Show your support for World AIDS Day by doing what I just did above. Simply take a picture of yourself with the hash tag #SomeoneLikeMeSG with your thoughts, fears, doubts, concerns, or questions about Sex, HIV or AIDS. Post them onto your social media platforms and get ready to change the world. Let us all work together to help shape a country FREE of HIV/AIDS.

Tell people that it’s okay to talk about sex and how to prevent sexually transmitted infections. Stop discriminating those who are victims of it and let them know that they're just like us. Be aware that HIV could (and does) happen to 'someone like me'. 

I shall end this post with a video that was taken a few weeks back. Watch to find out more about what we think about Sex, HIV and AIDS :)

Now here's the fun bit. I will be attending the World AIDS Day (WAD) Party along with the bloggers you've seen in the video above and I hope to see you there showing your support too!

Maybelline Color Show & Garnier Olia Event!, Advert- XHysteria, VogueAvenue

Maybelline Color Show & 
Garnier Olia Exclusive Previews

Hello everyone! The weekend is almost here!! Though that wouldn't be much of a difference for me since I'm SUPER packed with school assignments. In case you're wondering what I am doing right now, allow me to keep you guys updated. Firstly, filming has ended. It's been about 2 weeks now and I'm back in school busy with my Final Year Project (FYP). The project would last for about 4 to 5 months after which, I would probably have about a month off. Then I'm back to completing my internship program (SIP) that I've skipped for filming. 

Which means that I will be graduating a year later then my fellow peers cause school will only official end in June for me. Don't fret now, I feel totally fine about that cause I did what I wanted to do, learnt from it and grew a lot as a person. Had I gone with the flow and took up the internship program with the rest of my school mates, things would be A LOT different for me and for my future. More on that when things happen I guess? 

So at the moment, between recuperating from the amount of exhaustion I'd experienced from filming and school, I am also taking up more shoots and attending more events too. I'm so glad that I finally have my financial issues in control once again. 

One of the events that I've been to lately was Maybelline's Color Show and Garnier Olia exclusive previews. Yes, they're two very different brands but they had decided to combine both events together so that it'll be much more convenient not just for them but for us bloggers too! Here's how it went!:)

With Jamie <3 Coincidentally wearing the same cobalt blue, very Maybelline indeed.
With Mae <3
We got to preview Garnier's new product, Olia. Which is a specially formulated hair dye that does not cause any hair damage at all! We'd each walked away with a box of hair dye so I'm gonna try it out and let you guys know what I think alright? ;)

Apart from that, we also got an opportunity to do some handy crafts. The task was to create a flower hair clip out of felt, some beads and a few faux flowers. And here's my "not very well done" master piece. HAHAHA. Come on! We only had like 20 minutes to complete it? It was pretty fun and a good way to finally just sit down and do something different. 
Our REALLY messy table.
Next, it was time for some exciting action with Maybelline! We were first introduced to their new line of nail polishes and colored eyeliners called Color Show. I love how Maybelline is always full of energy and how cute their products always look. 

Check out these range of Color Show nail polishes! There's gonna be 40 shades hitting your local drug stores soon and they're ONLY retailing at SGD$6.90. HOW AWESOME IS THAT?? And their quality isn't compromised. The Color Show nail polishes are of top standards! They dry really quickly once you've applied onto your nails and they glide on really smoothly. It's so worth it!

Also, seasonally, Maybelline will bring new varieties of Color Show nail polishes and I AM CERTAIN THAT YOU WILL LOVE THEM. They showed us the Sequin and Polka Dot ranges. Yes girls, Maybelline's very own Color Show Sequin nail polish. And the interesting one that put everyone in awe was the Polka Dot range. It's basically a normal nail polish that automatically produces polka dots as you apply it. So cool huh?? These exclusive ranges retails at SGD$7.90.
Just like Garnier's handy craft session, Maybelline had their very own too! We were creating these clutches during the Maybelline's handy craft session. Its so cute isn't it? They're almost like the sort you can find at H&M or even Topshop.
Also, we were even these stickers to paint using the Color Show nail polishes and eyeliners. Check out the intensity of the nail polish's color, Its really gorgeous and seriously, I'm not lying, they glide on REALLY WELL! It made the session really fun cause we could get creative with the kind of designs we wanna paint on the stickers.

Check out what Jamie did! So pretty isn't it? All that using just a sponge and a Color Show nail polish.
Some colors I'd put together that I think would go extremely well.
And here's what we all took home with us! hehehe. Thanks Garnier and Maybelline for having us once again! I can't wait to try out the Olia hair dye and the Color Show nail polishes and eyeliners.
And that's it for now folks! I will be back again over the weekends for another exciting post. So be sure to check this space out yeah? I know I haven't blogged about anything really personal lately but I will do so as soon as I have more time. Also, I will be doing another Ask Eunice Annabel vlog soon! So if you have anything to ask me, fire away at

Thanks for reading! It's time to get back to doing school work :(

I just adore the quality of this crop top so much! It fits perfectly and isn't it just too cute?? It actually looks like it was taken off a Topshop rack doesn't it? Can't wait to wear this out paired with my denim shorts and boots. Effortlessly chic.

Paint Me Real

Paint Me Real
The Thoughtful & Personalized X'mas Gift

Christmas is coming! Though it's a beautiful season of sharing and giving, it can also be pretty stressful thinking about what to get for that special someone. Most people often turn to just getting generic presents like gift vouchers but let's be frank, that's boring and it may come across as insincere. 

How about doing someone a little different this year and get something with more sentimental value? With a little more personal touch. Like an oil canvas portrait of yourself and your loved ones? Yes, yes those paintings may be a little pricey (about $300-$400 per piece) but that wasn't the case for this painting that I did.

An oil canvas portrait of Fai and I.
The moment I saw it, I was really surprised at how good it looks! I have never got a portrait of myself drawn or painted before so I didn't know what to expect. And I am really pleased with the outcome of this portrait. Every single detail is well painted, even every single baby hair of mine. HAHA

It was painted by Paint Me Real, an international brand that paints high quality oil canvas portraits that is trusted by Global Standards. It took only about 2 to 4 weeks for the painting to arrive at my doorstep. and the best part? It only cost USD$99!!! That's a really really awesome price for such a high quality oil canvas painting.

And it was SO EASY to create! 

All I had to do was the following steps:
1) Head on down to

2) Choose a photo and upload it on to the site and choose the number of person in the photo.
3) Select the size of the painting
4) Key in my particulars, shipping, and billing information
5) And anticipate the arrival of my portrait 
(Alternatively, I could send it to Fai's place to surprise him. hehe)

Time is running out guys! If you would like to surprise your love ones with this very thoughtful, personal and sentimental gift this Christmas, start purchasing away! Just imagine the look on your loved ones faces. hehehe. Or if you would like to simply paint a portrait of yourself, you can too! Prices start from USD$80 for a single face portrait.

Victoria's Secret Holiday Pop-Up Store

Victoria's Secret Holiday Pop-Up Store 
@Wisma Atria Outdoor Atrium #VSPOPUPSG 
Pssssst. This post really matches my blog's design huh? hehehe

One of my MOST FAVORITE events EVER! Whenever I get a mail regarding Victoria's Secret, VS for short, my heart always skips a beat. I have always been in LOVE with VS ever since I was a little girl and my obsession became more intense as I grew older. 

I would spend lots of money purchasing VS products online even though I am aware that some times I only like the product for its packaging. BUT WHO CARES?!?! The fact that I get to carry along with me a little lipstick with that signature VS logo on it is good enough for me. No matter how much it would cost, I am sold!

Thanks to Valiram group, I hardly ever need to purchase any VS products anymore. Over the past few months, I have constantly been showered with the latest VS fragrance and lip glosses thanks to them. I really cannot be any more thankful for you guys!!! When I'd received the invitation to the Victoria's Secret Holiday Pop-Up store located at Wisma Atria Outdoor Atrium, I WAS OVER THE MOON. 
I really wasn't going as a blogger, I was also going as a HUGE FAN. I was so excited till the point that I was willing to skip school for it. I didn't of course cause I had to attend a rather important lesson that day so I'd only managed to attend the event a little later :/

The moment I saw the pop-up store, I was truly amazed. Just a few days before the event, Fai and I were just strolling past that area and it didn't look like how it looks like now at all! It really is an eye catching pop-up store that obviously mimics a gigantic present! Such a cutie.
I was greeted warmly as I entered the store. And it felt like some reunion party for me as I finally got to meet the people that have been sending me gifts. hehehe. After much introduction to the whole purpose of the store, I was offered to try out "What Kind Of Angel Are You?"-a short questionnaire that allows you to find out if you're a Sexy, Romantic or Playful Angel. hehehe. 

AND I AM A ROMANTIC ANGEL!!! And that makes a lot of sense cause the type of VS fragrances I like fall under that category! More on that later on ;)

Since I was late for the event because of school, the only Gusher that was there was Shine!!
We headed straight for the photo booth the moment we saw each other! It's time to camwhore!!!
The photo booth was such a hotspot in the pop up store. We actually had to queue for it but it was totally worth it cause it was SO MUCH FUN!!! I mean who doesn't love photo booths? They capture the best candid shots ever. Check out some of the shots we took together! hehehe
Its inevitable to NOT try to be a VS model whenever you're in a VS store. I am certain that MANY of you girls will do the same when you get the chance to visit the pop up store. hehehe
And the best part about photo booths? Your pictures get printed out instantly and you get to keep it forever!! Check out these prints we'd received^^
And the fun doesn't stop there! More bloggers joined us. hehehe
With Rachell, Peishi, Hayley, Mel and Shine planning on what to do in our shot!
Next, I decided to check out the items in the pop up store. Most of it were just fragrances but thats the whole point of it! Apart from getting your favorite fragrance for yourself, perfumes also make great gifts, perfect for this season of giving! 

My top pick would be this box of 6 different VS fragrance. If you're unsure of which fragrant to get for your love one or even for yourself, simply purchase this box to find out which you favor! Also, thanks to its miniature portable bottles, you can carry a different fragrant with you everyday! So travel friendly. LOVE IT! I'm gonna get one for myself.
I may be a Romantic Angel according to the test results, but I think I can be a different sort of angel every other day. Some days when I'm heading out for a casual date with Fai, I would wear my usual Romantic VS Angel Gold Fragrance. Other days when we're heading out for an adventure, my Victoria by Victoria's Secret does the trick to put me in a Playful mood. And days when I feel like partying, Tease makes me feel ultra Sexy. 

That's why I adore collecting VS perfumes! Not just for their to-die-for packaging, but also because every fragrant is always unique and different in its own way.
One of my FAVORITE VS fragrant of all times! Victoria by Victoria's Secret. Holding the bottle feels like holding a real gem. Actually, holding ANY VS perfume bottle feels like a gem. Such a great gift for X'mas. Really.
Here's the "Playful" section of there store. You can find fragrances like Bombshell and Victoria by Victoria's Secret here. Basically all your pretty pink stripe bottles! I feel that these fragrances always tend to smell a little stronger then the other ranges. But also sweeter after prolong wearing.
The pop up store also offers merchandises to go along with the fragrances. Like little handbags or make up pouches! At the moment I own about 3 VS make up pouches and 2 VS bags. And I must say the quality is REALLY good. Its been almost a year now but my stuffs are still in tip top condition.
Here's the Sexy section where you can find fragrances like the latest VS fragrance, Night and the very raved about fragrant, Tease. Everyone's always telling me how they LOVEEE Tease so much and I couldn't agree more. It smells really sweet but subtly seductive at the same time. And the packaging is once again, TO-DIE-FOR. 

Night is just as perfect for a sexy perfume. I mean come on, with Adriana Lima fronting it, it has got to be the sexiest fragrance EVER!
And of course, everyone loves the Romantic section. The classic Victoria's Secret Angels range are all available right here. I own VS Angel Gold as mentioned before and I simply adore it. Fai loves it so much, he says it smells very feminine and classy. It turns my man on, no wonder its under the Romantic range. hehehe
Ending this post with a picture taken with the wonderful lady that have been sending me all the lovely VS products over the past few months. So such love <3 <3 <3
AND YES! I walked away with the latest VS NIGHT fragrance along with other goodies. WHAHAHA! I know I'm such a show off when it comes to VS.
And that's it guys!!! So don't forget to check out the Victoria's Secret Holiday Pop Up store located at Wisma Atria Outdoor Atrium!! Be the first 100 to visit on 22nd to 24th November to enjoy a free lacie from 12 noon onwards! I WANT THAT LACIE TOO!! And on 23rd November, fans will be treated to complementary slush & more while you party to a live DJ spinning

It is definitely not a store you wanna miss out on this holiday season.
Thanks for reading guys and I hope I didn't come across as an annoying fanatic in this post. I mean come on, everyone is obsessed with something, at least I'm really showing you my crazy side. HAHA

Love y'all!
