New Year Resolutions~!

Hello!



I am sick again. (- -) Can't believe that I'm passing the last day of 2011 with fever. If you read what I wrote on my Facebook page or twitter you would've know that the temperature change between Genting Highlands and the rain + wind has done me well. (- -;) More on that in the post about the trip...



I wanted to take a break from blogging today actually but it's the last day of 2011 so I don't want to miss this post. Sorry if I'm writing this post wit lots of errors etc. m(_ _)m



So let's see how much I've accomplished my resolution for 2011~



1. Slim down
Failed... Well, at least I'm maintaining my weight. Ahahahaha..... (^^;)



2. Sleep more
Failed... I'm just too much of an owl.



3. Blog more
Hmm... considering that I've been quite consistent in blogging this year, I think I'll give myself a tick. This resolution will continue for next year too. (^^)



4. Complete my cosplay plans
Out of the three cosplay plans I've planned for 2011, I only managed to tick off 1. But I did an unexpected cosplay (Vita) though.



5. Control my spendings
This was pretty much okay until I started forking out money for my Vita cosplay which was so costly...



6. Learn more Japanese
Yes, another achievement! I'm able to understand more Japanese and speak the language now. Mom promised to send me to a proper language centre to learn the language next year. Yay!



7. Learn more make up skills
Yup, another achievement! Seeing how much I've changed my make up from the beginning of the year I can say that this was really successful!



8. Show more LOVE toward GOD, family and friends
I tried, but I think it's still the same as last year...



9. Reveal more secrets that I hid from my mum
Ticked off. Mom's beginning to accept that I am buying lots of stuff with my money and she's okay with it. (^^)



10. Get myself to be whiter
Done. (^^)



11. Buy stuff on my checklist.
Pretty much checked off all of them. Don't understand why I had this resolution though... (._.)



And that's it for 2011's resolutions. Now for 2012...



1. Score flying colours in SPM
It's the last and major exam for secondary students in Malaysia. It determines your future so I have to work hard to achieve this.



2. COntinue to learn more Japanese
Learning never stops, doesn't it?



3. Achieving clear skin
Lately I've been squeezing the zits and blackheads and that has caused my skin to have some dark spots here and there...



4. Drinking more water
I know this is important, but I've always neglected it. I drink about 1 to 2 cups of water daily...



5. Improving in helping others to make up
Even though I can do make up for myself, I'm still not skillful in helping others to put on make up. Need more practice for this...



6. Improve in fashion coordinate
I think I still need lots of practice in this. I'm not so good in coordinating clothings actually.



7. Better time management
Seriously, I need this. Or else my life would be a jumbled mess.



8. Getting out of my tiny world
Socially Awkward Penguin. I need to be more outgoing and more socialable.



9. Closer to God
I've been skipping church many times this year. I know it's not good to do that so I need to correct myself



Well, I guess that's it for now. I'm sorry for the lack of pictures in this post but I'm seriously blur right now. And I feel like vomiting too... (; ;)



I will blog again when I feel better.



See you!
December 29, 2011

Christmas Decorations around Kuala Lumpur

How was your Christmas?



For me, I spent the whole day with my family instead of sitting in front of my laptop. Hahaha! It was really nice to spend time with them and interact with them. (^^)



I didn't receive much presents this year so I guess I'll skip a boring Christmas Gifts posts. Ehehehehe~



In Malaysia, what really brings up the mood of Christmas are most definitely the gorgeous decorations in the shopping malls. So I thought it would be great to show you some Christmas decorations in Malaysia throught the eyes of a Malaysian. Hahahaha









Pavillion, Kuala Lumpur

I think this year's theme is Sweet Christmas? Since there were lollipops, sweets and cake displays. What impressed me the most was that Merry-go-round which actually works!









KLCC~
I think this year's decorations are pretty bland. The colours were pretty common and there wasn't anything special about it... Maybe just a spinning Santa? (^^;)











Fahrenheit 88

I absolutely love their decorations! It's so classy and romantic! It gives a feeling of being in a magical garden with those illuminations and plants.

However, could this be a spin-off of last year's Pavillion Christmas decorations? Since they had that Gazebo (Is that what it's called?) thingy too...



I only went to three different shopping malls lately and took these photos. Sorry if there were too few (> <;) But I hope you enjoyed viewing these pictures.



I've been going shopping quite often lately for new clothes and shoes in preparation for the upcoming trip and also Chinese New Year which is in a month! Mom is urging me to buy new clothes before the Year End Sales ends. I think I still want to buy more but mom is going to lecture me if I do that. :/



Somehow I prefer passive colour clothings and mom forced me to buy clothes of other colours... (^^;) I told her I can't find much clothes which I like here which are under my affordability. I really want to order clothes online but they are going to cost a bomb with those shipping fees... (._.;)



Sorry for the ranting, I guess I'd better stop now.



Will try to blog soon before going for the trip! \(^^)/



Good Night!

Massive haul~!

Konbanwa!!



Haven't been shopping like this for a long time already... I'm going for a trip on the 29th and 30th so I took the opportunity to buy some new clothes! I guess I'm nearly broke for now... :/ Can't wait for new school term when I get my pocket money again~



Anyways, this post is just to show you my hauls for today. (^^)





Pink Bunny print cardigan.

I only realize that one button is missing when I reach home (- -) Guess I'll have to go back and exchange for another piece...

But it's really cute and warm and I like it so much! (^^)





Hooded onepiece

I rarely find onepieces that are as long as my height. They are always either too long or too short. Disadvantage for short people like me (._.)





Simple tank top.

I got this at RM15 from Cotton On. It's pretty much see through so I need to wear something underneath. But I love the cotton material!

I really enjoy shopping during sales seasons as most of the stuff are discounted and you can find some goodies too. (^^)v





Also from Cotton On for RM30, these leopard printed shorts are so soft! I really want to coordinate it soon!





Bought tights from Forever 21 and knee high socks with ribbon pattern from Daiso. It's my first time buying tights from Forever 21 and I must say that the quality is awesome! So comfortable that I can wear them all day~ lols





Lastly, I got some miscellaneous stuff like instant ramen, christmas pack, lip balm, travel make up remover sheets and double eyelid tape. I have double eyelids naturally but I want to use them for a higher crease. I'm kinda fed up with the glue method somehow since it gets so messy (> <)



So that's it for now! Going for a Christmas Party with my church friends soon. Looking forward to an enjoyable night~



Will blog soon, bye~!

Sponsored Review: Princess Mimi Apple Green Lens

Today I'm going to review on Princess Mimi Apple Green Lens which were generously sponsored by Shoppingholics.com!





Shoppingholics replied my emails efficiently. The first time they sent me the parcel it somehow got lost at the post office... (^^;) But when I contacted them they took the trouble to settle the problem and sent me another parcel with some goodies too! I am very happy with their good service. (^^)





Here's how Princess Mimi Apple Green Lens look like~

Origin: Korea
Diameter : 15.0mm
Water Content : 38%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 year disposal




Without flash, with flash and with eyemake + flash.







Color/Design:★★★★★
I absolutely love these lenses! They are the dolly-iest ones I've ever worn! The green and yellow gradient is really eye catching which is good if you're trying to get attention from others. (^^) I can just keep staring at the mirror, haha!

Comfort:★★★★
I've always been a fan of Geo lenses and these didn't disappoint me at all! I can just put them in and blink then I felt like there weren't anything in my eyes.

Enlargement:★★★★
With 15.0mm diameter, these lenses makes your eyes look big! I think it's the dolly design which creates an illusion of larger looking eyes.

Overall:★★★★
These lenses are a love. If you're looking for dolly eyes look, then I would totally recommend these. However, because it is green, it might look somehow unnatural compared to brown lenses... But we're talking about green lenses, aren't we? (^^)





Shoppingholics has also offered me a discount code to share it with my readers. Using this code, 1000168382, you will save USD$2. So please visit their shop! (^^)v



By the way, I have just set up a Facebook page. If you noticed, I've been avoiding interactions on Facebook... But I thought that through Facebook, it's easier to tell stuff to my readers and to know them better. So please 'Like' it and drop me a message too~ (^^) Hope to see you there!



Bye bi~!

Comic Fiesta 2011 - Interview with Ceui and Shimokawa Mikuni

Hello!



Being an affiliated blogger with Comic Fiesta 2011, I was very grateful to be able to attend the private interview of Ceui and Shimokawa Mikuni, two special guest that flew all the way from Japan to Comic Fiesta 2011.



It was my first time attending such event hence I must apologize if I missed some details. I'm still an amateur you see...



Nevertheless, I will try my best to type out whatever I wrote down as accurate as possible. (._.)




What do you think of Malaysia when you first arrived?

SM: I thought that Malaysia is really hot! I wondered if it is really December since it's so hot! But I was happy to visit Malaysia.

C: When I arrived at Malaysia, there was a huge thunderstorm. I was surprise to see that summer's continuing in Malaysia. I think that Malaysians are cheerful and warm just like the weather!



What inspires you in writing music? What's your secret behind it?

SM: I would read the anime thoroughly before writing the song. I want to write songs not only to be sung, but to deliver a message to the audiences.

C: Music plays a great role in my life. I hope to be able to create a fantasy world with the songs I sing. I also hope to be able to create fantasy songs like those in Totoro.



Apart from Malaysia, have you held concerts in other parts of the world?

SM: My first stop was Taipei then Beijing, Shanghai, Macau, Singapore and Korea

C: Malaysia is my third destination outside of Japan. I've been to Gao Shiung, Guang Zhou and Hong Kong.



If you are to collaborate with a MTV singer, who would you pick?

C: Debra! (I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with MTV artiste names... What Ceui said in Katakana was De-be-ra)

SM: I really don't know who to choose from! But I'll be glad to collaborate with anyone.





C: Listening to music is not just to influence but to uplift one's spirit. It brings joy to restore one's courage too. And may that person pass it on to others.

SM: After 311 (The massive earthquake that hit Japan), I've been performing in several other countries to gather donation to support Japan. It is amazing that through Anisong, people feel love, which is somehting natural. Also, people can know a country better.



How did you get involve in Anisong?

SM: I watched Anime since I was young. Even now I'm still watching it! It was someone's suggestion to start singing Anisong. I must say that it was good timing!

C: There was a search for singer of Anisong. I was very surprised to be chosen to sing OP and ED for an Anime.



What Anime would you recommend apart from those which you're singing for?

SM: K-ON! You know K-ON? It's popular in Japan!

C: The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, Kuroshitsuji and Itazura na Kiss



(Now for the last question. And it's a hot question indeed~!) Who do you think is the hottest guy in the world?

SM: Someone who can bring me to a good food restaurant. (Don't you mean your manager?) Laughs...

C: Someone who is out of this world... Like Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji and Erie from Itazura na Kiss





Both Ceui and Shimokawa Mikuni were such sweeties! Thank you for the interview!



I hope you enjoyed reading~!

Comic Fiesta 2011 Report~!

Konbanwa!



So here's my version of the largest ACG event of the year, Comic Fiesta 2011!





I arrived at 8.59am(Look at the time in the pic, lols) on Day 1 with my mom. Look at the queue of those lining up to buy tickets on the day of the event!



My mom was the second in line to collect the mock tickets for her friends' children. I didn't need a ticket since I got a free pass for being part of the blogger affiliate program~ Ufufufu~

I must say that I was really glad to obtain that pass otherwise I would've been stuck outside the hall most of the day.









As such, I got to go inside the hall before the event started. This year, the hall is even bigger than last year's location at Times Square. It might not look so since the crowd is even more packed than last year but it is, when you look at it before the crowd comes in (^^;)





The long line before Hall 5 was opened to public.





It was my first time witnessing the opening ceremony of Comic Fiesta since 2009.





For those who missed it, you can watch it in the video above.





After walking around for some time, I exited the hall with Sasure. Without knowing that you have to line up to get in again. The line was super long already around 11am. By that time I still didn't know that I could get in without lining up. (^^;)



Couldn't get in so I went and take picture of cosplayers then had lunch with the Hetalia group.



Then I thought, maybe I could try going inside the hall with my pass so I left them around 1pm to catch Ceui and Shimokawa Mikuni's performance. And yes! I could go in WITHOUT lining up. I was super happy then quickly ran towards Hall 5 to catch their performance.

It was my first time watching professional Japanese singers performing. I enjoyed myself a lot! Their voice were absolutely beautiful! And they kept saying 'Terima Kashi' wich means 'Thank You' in Malay.





Here's a video of the autograph session with Ceui and Shimokawa Mikuni which I missed. OTL But still, I got to go inside the VIP room where the Media peeps interviewed them. Will blog about it later. (^^)



I exited the hall and went to take more photos of cosplayers. It rained that day and I guess a lot of people went home since they couldn't enter the hall... I know that many are still blaming Comic Fiesta committee about the lockdown causing them to miss a lot of the stuff going on in Hall 5 but it was actually the KLCC management's fault for butting in with the crowd handling... (- -;)



I didn't stay to watch the Special Screening as I was super exhausted already and I had to finish up my prop for Day 2...



Day 2 of Comic Fiesta was much better. This time, Comic Fiesta committee took over the crowd handling and everything was going really smooth! They managed to clear up the queue by noon so it was a pleasant day for everyone.



I arrived at 10am but sat down in Hall 4 till 1.30pm waiting for Angel to arrive. OTL And because I had to take care of her prop, I didn't get to take picture of cosplayers... (; ;) And when she came, there were so many photographers and we were stopped by them all the time... Still, why can't I find any of my pictures?! (- -;)



I didn't enter Hall 5 on Day 2 and missed out the Lolita Fashion Show and Culture Japan which I very much wanted to watch... (; ;) Partially your fault you know, Angel (- -) Hence, no pictures of the stuff going on in Hall 5 on Day 2. (; ;)



Since next year I'm going to have my SPM (Major exam for secondary students) I think I'll keep my cosplays simple so I can have time to study and take more pictures of cosplayer. I hope I can get an DSLR by that time... I really love photography but my Nikon L19 disappoints me with grainy indoor photos. Urgh...



So that's it for my Comic Fiesta 2011 report! I have posted pictures of cosplayers in two previous posts. Below are the links~

Comic Fiesta Day 1 - Photos of Cosplayers
Comic Fiesta Day 2 - Photos of Cosplayers



Also, I've found several pictures of my cosplay~







Please send me my pictures if you have them! haniekuar@hotmail.com



There will be one last post on Comic Fiesta which is the interview with Ceui and Shimokawa Mikuni. Will get it posted soon so please follow my blog and catch the latest updates! (^^)v

Comic Fiesta Day 2 - Photos of Cosplayers

Hello again!



I'm really sorry for not taking much pictures today... I wanted to but each time I take out my camera, there will certainly be someone asking me 'Excuse me, can I take a picture with you/of you?' and I had to put my camera away because of that and missing out lots of awesome cosplay...



What really freaked me out was that once someone starts taking photo of me, a whole group of people would come by and snapping pictures of me with their DSLR, digicam or mobile phones... (. .;) It's my first time to be photographed like this... (> <)



Anyways, here are some pictures that I managed to snap with lots of effort since I had to quickly shift myself from one place to another just to avoid photographers and taking pictures of others... (^^;)



Once again, feel free to email me at haniekuar@hotmail.com or leave a comment below if you found your photos here and I'll send the original size photo to you. (^^)



























I hoped you enjoyed viewing them! I had a great day today at Comic Fiesta despite the constant 'Can I take your picture' problem... There wasn't much queue today so kudos to the Comic Fiesta committee for being able to pull it off well! Although I had this thought that it could be that there were less people today since many were put into great disappointment yesterday... Still, it was great having so many wonderful cosplayers around to support the event. \(^^)/



I met with two of my blog readers to throughout these two days. It means so much to me that I know that someone out there is reading my blog and telling me how much they love reading it. It motivates me to blog more and post up many more interesting contents for my readers to read. Thank you so much! (^^)



That's it for now, I think I will blog about Comic Fiesta tomorrow and also, an exclusive interview of Ceui and Shimokawa Mikuni soon!



Good Night! (^^)v

Comic Fiesta Day 1 - Photos of Cosplayers

Konbanwa!



Just came back from Comic Fiesta not long ago. It was total chaos today since KLCC management decided to have lockdowns, meaning attendees was let in batch by batch. However, lucky for me since my blog is affiliated with Comic Fiesta, I got a pass which allowed me to skip the queues and go wherever I wanted to. Ufufufufu~~



Anyways, this post is just pictures of cosplayer. I will do a proper post on the event itself later on. I'm just too tired right now to think and blog about the event. OTL




If you see any images of yours, kindly email me at haniekuar@hotmail.com or leave a comment below for the original size without the blog watermark. (^^)

















































Alright, that's it for Day 1. It makes me want to get a new camera since my camera can't handle indoor photos... (- -;) Now I ave to continue rushing my Graf Eisen although it's going to be 12 soon. Damn it!



Well, see you at Comic Fiesta tomorrow! Will be cosplaying as the Princess of Hammer, Vita!!!
