Football? Football


Above are pictures of me and Hui Yee attempting to reenact the poster for The Fault in Our Stars after the exhausting futsal match with classmates last week. Though it didn't turn out as planned, since the pictures are more like our shameless and gratuitous selfies in the middle of the futsal pitch instead of what was in the poster.

I don't usually write about my personal thoughts in this blog. If I'm not mistaken, the last post that I've written that relates to my personal feelings was a post regarding last year's election. However, after countless nights of watching the FIFA World Cup 2014, I've decided that I should write something about it.

Believe it or not, I actually stayed up for nights to watch the FIFA World Cup 2014. From the preliminary rounds to the quarter finals, then to the semi finals and lastly the grand finale. I was unexpectedly hardcore about watching football this time; even I myself couldn't believe it. Well, I used to play inter-class football matches back in high school but I had not watched any football matches on screen before this year's World Cup. There are several reasons that I was constantly doing this extraordinary act for nights through the whole month, causing my eyes to become red, risking my lungs and even damaging my brain. I feel so unhealthy now.

1. Addiction
Ever since I watched the first match which was Brazil VS Croatia, I kind of got addicted to the thrill that I experienced watching the match. The nervous feelings got even stronger when none of the teams scored, there was extra time and even penalties. Furthermore, I really love the moment when your favourite team shoots into the goal and the whole bunch of people watching with you in the living room begin shouting and cheering together. This addiction is just growing day by day. Right now, I already can't wait for the FIFA World Cup 2018 which will be held in Russia. By that time, I will be studying in the UK and I don't have to wake up at midnight just to watch the games anymore.

2. Social
Like I just said, I will be studying in the United Kingdom, and this is (hopefully) going to happen in September next year. As you can see, I want to study there as soon as possible. In England and also most of the other European countries, they all are very into football. From what I heard from others, one of the best ways to build up a conversation with the locals may be the topic of football. Despite doing this for social purposes, I actually gained a lot of knowledge about football through watching the World Cup. For instance, the rules of football, the winning history of different teams, and the names of some iconic footballers, etc.

3. Hot guys and girls
Admit it, who doesn't? I remember back in high school, my math teacher told me that questions related to sports seldom come out. This is because not many students know the specifics of sports like football. She seemed kind of pissed off about the fact that students don't watch football and told us that there are a lot hot guys in the field. She was like, "if that's not the reason to watch football then what is?" I will never forget her reaction. Indeed, there are loads of hot footballers in the pitch and hot girls in the audience. Neymar is like my #1 football star crush now and we share the same birth date hehe.

Anyway, I'm having an one week Raya holiday now. Gonna utilize this holiday to study for my AS trials and probably do a few updates on my blog. I apologize for not blogging lately. A-levels is getting serious. To all the A-levels kids out there, I'm sure you're feeling the overwhelming stress currently. Good luck and study well! Last but not least, Happy Hari Raya!

Hello readers! It's been awhile since I last blogged. I'm truly sorry for that. How's everything going? It's been crazy for me these past few months. Finished my college's semester 1 test last week and am now having a two-week-holiday (well, left with 10 days only, to be precise ). 

It's always a challenge for me when naming a blog post, same goes with this post. I've been really obsessed with this skirt lately. It's really edgy and versatile. I've been receiving compliments from friends and strangers, who keep asking where did I get this skirt. This situation is just making me more and more into this skirt. 

Besides that, as a student, I'm really lazy to dress up to college yet I still want to look stylish. I seek for the opportunity to sleep more rather than waking up early just to choose my outfit for college. Thus, I've started to invest in backpacks, for instance, this Topshop one. The shape of this backpack is quirky and it is not the kind of traditional shape whenever we think of backpacks. I brought this backpack to Australia last holiday and surprisingly, I could put quite a number of things inside. 

Before I end this post, just to let you guys know that I've participated in Asia Muse Search 2014. And guess what, I got into the finals! You might already know this from my other social media platforms. This competition is organised by Cite Sdn Bhd to search for a model that suits both VIVI Malaysia and Mina Malaysia magazine. I'm always a loyal reader of both of these magazines. Sincerely hope that I can win this competition. Show me your support by clicking "like" on this and this image. They are the same image but different magazines, if you're wondering. Thank you so much in advance! The finals is on 5th of July at Sungei Wang, will update you guys when I know the time of the event. 

Love,

Shekhinah

Hello dear readers! It's been a while since I last updated my blog. So sorry! It's been hectic for me these weeks. Once I was back in Malaysia after an Australia trip, college started again and tons of assignment were waiting for me to get accomplished. More and more tasks are needed to be done. Eventhough I really wanted to update my blog so badly, but I just couldn't sit there facing the macbook for hours given that there are so many stuffs that needs to be completed. Right now sitting infront of the comp and blogging has already made me utterly guilty. 

To begin with, my skin condition became worse after coming back from Gold Coast, Australia. Sun burn and breakouts, I am really disgusted and afraid to even see my own face in the mirror. Lucky me,  Agape Boutique offered me a box of Shekhinah serum to save my skin! It's also a great opportunity for me to start writing some beauty review posts. I've been reading some beauty blog posts for beauty upkeep reference, most of them uses beauty camera in beauty reviews which I personally think that it is not genuine and less convincing. Hence, in this blog post, I insisted to use only a DSLR to shoot. I did apply some make up on my face  (brows, thin eye liner and mascara) but trust me I didn't use any foundation or BB cream.
I know most of the times, we are very cautious about the products we buy online, especially when it comes to beauty products. Well I worry as well. However, you can simply trust Shekhinah serum. This product is formulated in France with Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia's approval. 
In this box of Shekhinah serum, it comprises Stem Cell Renewal Serum and Diamond Renewal Serum. Both of these serums are suitable for all skin types. These two serums literally improved my skin tone, making my face look more radiant and reduced pimples. 

One bottle of serum contains 3.5ml, it is estimated to be abled to use for approximately 5 to 6 times ( depends on how you apply).
Here's the step on how you should you the serum correctly:
1. Wash your face with facial cleanser
2. Apply Toner on your face
3. Apply Shekhinah Stem Cell Renewal Serum. Gently massage until fully absorbed. (Apply 3-6 drops of serum on your palm, then focus on using your fingertips and apply it directly on your face, massage gently in circular motions over the next approximately 3-5 minutes)
4. You may apply sun block, moisturizer or make-up after using Shekhinah Stem Cell Renewal Serum.
5. For best results, please use both serums together. ( If you combine both serum, Please always apply Shekhinah Stem Cell FIRST. Massage until full absorbed then only apply Shekhinah Diamond Renewal Serum)
You can apply the serums twice a day (day and night).
A picture of evidence of I really did use the serums. 
If you wish to buy a box of serum, please visit Agape Boutique to purchase. Hope you guys enjoy reading my very first beauty post. Many thanks!
Last but not least, an outfit post. Wearing H&M basic top and a very lovely skirt c/o Starlight Shop.
