Guess Who's the Birthday Girl?

Hi everybody,

There are two important things on my mind today :) Numero uno is to blog Twitter style (140 characters or less.) Here's what I came up so far and the story is real!

Tweet-blog #1:
Heard at Target

A couple searched for makeup. The girl would wear whatever the boy picked. He chose the brightest green eyeshadow ever!

And tweet-blog #2:
The morale of this story: unless you want to look like a clown, don’t let your man pick out your makeup. He knows zip about it!

(127 characters with space)
I guess I should blog Twitter-style like this from now on, instead of writing pages and pages about makeup. It is fast and entertaining, I can churn out entries after entries everyday! And it does not take that much time to blog at all. But the thing is, I am quite loquacious and it goes from being talkative in real life to being garrulous and glib online. Geeze, what a mouth I have, right?

Anyways, guess who’s the birthday girl?


This year, I got a whole lot of gifts to celebrate my early late-twentieth birthday. I took advantage of MAC sumo sale and haul some stuff I wanted for years. Also, Victoria's Secret was kind enough to give me a gift to redeem at any of their stores. I picked a bottle of Secret Charm, their newest scent from the Secret Garden collection. Then, I got a lip tint from C.O Bigelow at Bath and Body Works. I’m quite a fan of C.O Bigelow’s line of peppermint stuff. It’s really addicting.

The loot
Can you name what I got?

This probably may give you some clues :)

Happy Birthday to me, indeedy!

The fact that I’m no longer in my early or mid twenty kind of scared me a bit. While my high school friends are all settled with houses and kids, I’m still pursuing greatness in somewhere that’s nowhere near home. But as they said, “Keep on truckin’!” and that’s what I’m doing these days.

So that's all for today. I know it's a short post because I need to enjoy my day a lot more :) And please don't forget to comment in the last post to win prizes.

  1. Hey! I prefer your blog entries the way they are, :), I do not find them long at all.
    And Happy Birthday!

  2. Hi Catanya,

    I find it more difficult to write shorter entries and the twitter-style blogs were a challenge :) Thank you for your well wishes :)

  3. Happy Birthday! I have that C.O Bigelow peppermint stuff and I really like it, too.

  4. Hi again, I understand, it would be terribly difficult for me to write in twitter-style! But yours is witty!

  5. Happy Birthday! Late twenties? I'm so shocked. You seriously don't look the part (from one asian to another)

  6. Hi Nessa,

    I'm addicted to peppermint lip products. They smell so good and keep me alert. Thank you for your well-wishes!

  7. Hi Catanya,

    No problem! Thank you for your encouragement!

  8. Hi Pattie,

    Yup, no lying I'm getting old! But I do have a baby face so it's hard to guess my age. Got mistaken for rookie undergrads all the time!

  9. Happy birthday, Dao! Late twenties? You look a lot younger!

    Great haul!

  10. happy (belated?) bday dao!!! so what's the dream you are trying to reach so far from home? here's to many more bdays!!

  11. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! ^_^

    Nice gifts you got for yourself there! ;D

  12. Happy birthday girl! whatever road you choose, wishing you the best of luck and happiness.

    Ngoc Ha

  13. Thank you so much, ladies, for your lovely birthday wishes :)

    @Gio: thank you for your lovely comment. I think wearing sunscreen religiously pays off :)

    @Kia: I'm trying to finish my education, it takes forever!

    @Amy: I figured out life is too short, why not get some good things I've been wanting for ages? I'll do the reviews in some later weeks.

    @NH: thank you, girlfriend! You are so sweet!

  14. Happy birthday. Asians are blessed with younger than age looking, so don't worry about your age. And also don't worry about being different from your friends. Have fun with whatever age you are.

    Oh, and the tweeter style was funny :-)

  15. Hi Halifax,

    Thank you for your lovely comment. I'm glad you like the twitter-style blogs :)


Dear Dao...
