Ushering in 2012

Tonight marks the last few hours of 2011 and this year had been one helluva roller coaster ride. This year:

1. I became Mrs Boypren
2. I finally graduated with a Masters in World Literature in English from UPM
3. Found a job that touches all bases in what I love to do
4. Started baking more and more :)
5. Neglected my camera (I'm sorry Mr. Pink :( )

And these are the highlights of my year. I am hoping that 2012 will present me with more photo op moments to fully utilize Mr Pink once again. Here's to hoping that you are having a great time ushering in the new year no matter where you are and who you are with. Finally, I pray for love, happiness and health for all my loved ones and peace for the world (well, didn't that sound like something from a beauty pageant!).

Happy 2012 lovies!

Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

Last Wednesday, Ladyboss Anne and I baked chocolate orange cupcakes for the company's Secret Santa Potluck dinner. We followed this recipe to the tee and it was absolutely delicious! I know it sounds a bit like we are bragging but really I think that's the sign of a good recipe. ;) Or maybe Ladyboss Anne and I are just excellent bakers, and we did bake with a whole lot of love! Anyways, these are the only pictures that I have of the cupcakes :(. The cute little drawings on the box were done by Ladyboss Anne. It was really so cute!

Sipping Darjeeling Tea

Has anyone seen this video posted up on the Chanel YouTube channel? I am in love. Ok, Ok I am not being biased here because of my Indian heritage but that immaculate workmanship just takes my breath away!

I love that the models are just wearing the clothes and walking (somewhat confused looking) in front of the windows. Ultimately, that should be the goal; for potential buyers to look at just the clothes. Almost every moment could be frozen into snapshots and be put into any magazine as a fashion spread! And I wish I could recreate that kind of smoky-eyes make up on the female models, so very Bollywood of them. And their skin... absolutely flawless! Fantastic lighting perhaps?? LOL. The male models however, look like modern day maharajas!

Seriously Chanel, why do you torture me with such pretty clothes that I reeeeeaaaaaallllyyyyy can't afford? WHYYYYY??

Also, here's wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

A Touch of Green and Red

Last Sunday night (holy crap it's been almost a week), I went for my first company dinner! 25 and I finally popped-the-company-dinner-cherry! LOL. It was pretty awesome as there were 80 ++ people from all over; Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, China, Hong Kong and Australia. Malaysia is currently the biggest office with the most staff; including yours truly.

So obviously, everyone had to dress to impress; HR even sent out an email with a proper invitation. We were even given a dress code; we were either to wear green, red or anything sparkly (Christmas colors). And since I bought a green maxi dress from Poplook which I haven't had the opportunity to wear, it definitely was my go to outfit. Especially with the accessories that I bought for the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards (I wasn't attending as a guest mind you ;)). And, here is my outfit for the dinner. Just excuse the wall, I think it peed in the face of my awesome-ness!!

And these are a few of my favourite shots from the night:

My team with including the intern at the left

Girls being girls ;)

The entire Netccentric team

I initially wanted to post something longer but I figured who would actually want to read so many words, even I don't want to nowadays. Especially after coming home from work, all I want to do is see some pretty pictures! I by far am a terrible, terrible blogger.

Oh well, can't really do anything about it anyways! ;)

Have a wonderful long and Christmas-y weekend everyone! It's time to crank up the holiday tunes, and this is still my favourite. ;)

A Thousand Years

Well, finally. Something to put a stop to all those hideous bieber-tunes that have been playing on the airways! If you haven't heard of Christina Perri's 'A Thousand Years', please do!

A decent love song after all the crap that has been playing on the radio. I know, I's commercialized and will probably be played in a million and one wedding ceremonies, but seriously, the lyrics is just poetry to me:

Time stands still,
Beauty I know she is,
I will be brave
I will not let anything
take away,
What's standing in front of me,
Every breath,
Every hour has come to this

I was extremely happy to know that this song was not especially written for the OST of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1. That would have made me hate myself, really really hate myself for loving this song!!

Enjoy the song lovies!

p/s: Bella (Kristen Stewart) looks incredible bad in this video clip. Sorry twihards, someone had to say it!

Black, White and Purple

Well, I know this is random. No postings but suddenly there is a outfit post. Just bear with me though! I have been caught up with work and nothing exciting/important has been happening recently for me to use as blog fodder. Life has pretty much taken a turn for the....predictable...routine...expected. I guess I missed that turn that takes me all the way to adventures. Anyways, this is what I wore for the Maybelline From Catwalk to Sidewalk fashion show.

Oh, and a whole lot of thanks goes to husband for taking all these photos of me! Love you x infinity!

Dear Secret Santa

Every year, there is a Secret Santa tradition where my colleagues exchange Christmas gifts a few days before everyone take off for the holidays. This little list is to help you, my Secret Santa, on your shopping adventure. I do have to say that I am a very difficult person to shop for. My personal style is so confused; it borders between laidback and relaxed to homaigod-I-love-sequins! So to help you, my Secret Santa, here are some of the thing you can consider:

1. Jewelry; well more like accessories. I am really loving big statement rings (especially) and necklaces right now. An example would be something like this.
2. Film for my Mr Pink would great. 120mm is the stuff for Mr Pink.
3. TOPSHOP! I love love love Topshop, but this might be kinda tricky if you don't know me too well.
4. Kimono Jackets.
5. Makeup! Yeap, love make up too!
6. A Polaroid camera would make me a very happy camper.
7. For someone to dictate while I talk and then blog about it! ;) Yes, that is Miss Lazy Me talking! ;)
8. To have a personal professional photographer follow me around.
9. Maxi skirts, I like you too.
(I do realize as my list in increasing the things I want are turning more nonsensical!)

Hmmm...well, I can't really think of anything else anymore. I do realize that my list is somewhat random but I seriously don't know what else I want from my Secret Santa. So this is it.

Happy Christmas Shopping!

Demerit System for Women

*Okay, I know that I have been really really absent from the blogosphere, but just bear with me. So this is a lil' somethin', somethin' written by our sneaky, sarcastic and pervy little intern! Although honestly, beneath all that; he's a pretty good kid!*

Every relationship is governed by a set of rules. And every set of rules tends to have its own fair share of punishments. More specifically, a demerit system. When I drew up this demerit system, I got plenty of feedback from most of my female friends, mostly ‘We’re not like that’ or ‘I HATE YOUR GUTS!’ My male friends just nod and smile cryptically.

Without further ado, I present to you the Demerit System In Relationships (For Females).

• It's showing cleavage. (-20)
• Lots and lots of cleavage. (-50)

• You angrily spill his drink. (-40)
• You grab his Xbox and destroy it with a hammer. (depends on what game he was playing and how much of the game he has completed)(between -100 and -10000000)

Spending time at the mall
• You jump into every single shop. (-10)
• You buy something from every single shop you jump into. (-20)
• With his money. (-50)

His birthday
• You get him a gift. (+30)
• Which you have spent so much time on. (+40)
• You don't fail to remind him about it. (-10)
• And you bring it up during future arguments. (-500)

Meeting his friends

• And proceed to let loose his secrets. (-50)
• Which include that time he embarrassed himself in public. (-50)
• It draws laughter. (-30)

Meeting your friends

• You blame it on Modern Warfare Black Ops. (-50)
• You ask him to exercise. (-10)
• You point out that he is getting fat, and he says 'Yeah? You too.' (+100)
• You kill him for that. (-100)

During an argument

Hope that helps a lot.
