Snippets of Kota Kinabalu.

Harlow! I am currently in Kota Kinabalu for the Miss Borneo Tourism 2010, and I'm enjoying every single day here. The people here are polite, the weather is nice, the malls are way better and the things are much cheaper! Boo Kuching. 

I'll not update fully yet, because I'll do so once this pageant is over. :D Here are the things that I've been doing here so far since I arrived here on the 16th.

Dinner at Lintas.

Photoshoot with Benny Liew at his studio.

With my girls. Best people to hang out with, Marlene and Janet.

At Hyatt's Shenanigan's.

At First Beach Tanjung Aru. It's a open space food court! DAMN! 

Sutera Harbor Resort, where we waited for boats to go to Mamutik Island.

Us in our scuba diving suits.

Gearing up.

Checking and adjusting the tanks to our BCDs. 

Hello Carlos! It's a frequent lizard that roams around the quarters.

The outcome of the photoshoot. Makeup and hair done by yours truly. :D

In my bikini.

In my cocktail dress. :D

Will update more soon!

Marry me. Change me.

Many of you may have read my pimples woes on my Twitter and Facebook. Ever since I ran out of my beloved skincare products, Loreal Pure Zone, pimples pop out like crazy on my chin area. I'm currently using Za True White Plus and Loreal DermaGenesis products. 

So far, my skintone is more even and silkier to touch all thanks to Za. However, it didn't stop the pimples from popping out. I love DermaGenesis Pore Minimizing Smoother gel cream to bits because it works just fine on my face. It delivers what it promises; reduces my pore sizes. 

I used to have quite visible pores on my T-zone and after a month of using this gel cream, my pores were reduced, like by 80% at least! I love it and I love the texture. 

I've been contemplating on what products that I should buy to reduce these pimples and prevent further ones from popping out to say hello. I've considered Biotherm Aquasource, ProActiv, Eucerin, Clinelle, Simple, The Face Shop, Nature Republic and Neutrogena. 

Let's skip BodyShop, Clearasil, Oxy and Clean & Clear. They totally don't work at all on my skin.

Sigh. Let's mourn for Loreal Pure Zone and the products' discontinuation. BOO YOU Loreal peeps! Why discontinue such a good skincare range?? Many girls are mourning for the loss. 

I finished my last bottle of the Deep Exfoliating Gel wash a few months ago, and I tell you, HALLELUJAH to all pimples! All pimple hell breaks loose. 

"Where should we show ourselves??"
"Forehead?" NO! "Nose?" NO! "Cheeks?" YES! "Chin?" YES! And they all did the fist pumps beneath my skin surface. Hence, this. All on the right side of my face.

All sweaty after working out. See the cute pimples? *long sigh* And yes, I have 4 piercings on my ear lobe there, if you notice.

Scary right? Not a fan of Photoshop. What you see is what you get. I don't liquify or cover up my pimples.

I seldom had pimples before, all thanks to Loreal Pure Zone. Not even the worst menstruation could stir up pimples. 

So, this morning I was determined to get out of bed and got everything done; my debt with CAIS, my graduation letter at BPPS and tHe Spring.

Yes, I owed CAIS RM 18.20. BIG deal. T_T After getting my things done in UNIMAS, I went to Spring. I bought Nature Republic's Blemish Lab AC skincare range.

I did not buy the cleanser because I still have tons at home. 

Anti Blemish Ampoule. The cute salesgirl pronounced it as "Empul". :D RM 73.90

AC Control Essence. RM 57.90 See, Rain is doing the peek-a-boo. :P

And free gifts!

The salesgirl gave me 2 bottles of White Therapy toner & emulsion as well as a pack of mask! NICE!

I'm excited to put these on my face. I'll update you on the verdict after 2 weeks okay? :D Now, I'm focusing on detoxifying myself by doing cardio (running/ skipping rope) for at least 20 minutes and another 20 minutes on workouts (squats, pushups, lunges). I keep a large bottle of mineral water by my bed whenever I'm online. I'm hopelessly fit? :P

To set the record straight, FIT and SKINNY are NOT the same. If you're thinking it's the same, you must run around the track 10 times and see if your views are still the same.

P.S.: Eclipse is kinda boring. Buy DVD instead. I watched it 3 days ago, and I was like, come on Bella! I just can't wait to watch Breaking Dawn. :P Renesmee. 

P.S.S: Team Jacob!

21 years had come and gone.

It's just one of those days that I'm thankful for. 

I'm thankful for hugs. I'm thankful for kisses. I'm thankful for friends who got hurt by the mean things people say about me, and called just to say hi.

I'm thankful I finally finished reading Kate Mosse- The Winter Ghosts; I started reading it in February, read a few pages every other day and finally flipped the last page today. Good book, it is.

Featured in one of Sabah's newpaper column. Also at Borneo Post. :D

Mandy and I had dinner with Jakeman and his friend Ramesh at Gossip.

We all agreed on one thing; the place SUCKS like hell. Food was below mediocre. The only thing I'd come back for is the gorgeous sofas. Embedded with huge rhinestones!

Miss Gorgeous and I looking orange. Oompa Loompa??

Posed with our Amazing Potato Salad. Yeah, very "amazing."

Group pic! :) Our long, awaited dinner with Mr. Big/Jakeman, WITHOUT Farah. That amoi, all the way in KL right now.

There, a human staircase. LOL. The 5 feet 5, the 5 feet 7 and the 6 feet 3.

After the dinner, Mandy and I went to Hijau, to blend in with the crowd watching football match. Haha. Bad idea.

Here's something to gasp at.

Would you buy it? Haha. Even La Mer's essence cremes are much cheaper!
