Friends or Fakes?

Sponsored post

I am sure most (if not all) of you here has a Facebook account.

If not you better start one now! Lolol! Pretty useful for stalking people and NOW, for testing out friendship/ relationship with the people on your Facebook! Haha! Interesting?! READ ON!!!

Introducing this app that will tell you WHO ARE YOUR REAL FRIENDS on Facebook and WHO ARE THE "FAKES"!!!

Fakes as in.. You know, people who don't really care about you but still care enough to give you a "Like" or two when you post something. Hahah. Liking a status is easy, sharing an interesting article you posted is effortless. But CAN HE/ SHE STAND THE REAL TEST OF FRIENDSHIP?!

Okay that sounds a bit too serious.

Lol. But the main point is.. You can tell who cares about you and who don't, AND earn items that YOU want, FOR FREE! Yeah, all at the same time!!! How is that gonna happen you ask.

Thank Courts for it. Hahaha. It's funny cox it sounds like "Thank god".

Social game Courts came up with that will show you who are your real friends and who are the fakes out of all the friends on your Facebook!!! AND earn you prizes along the way!

Before i move on to what this game is all about, a little bit about Courts! Courts is the leading electronics and home furnishing mega chain in Singapore. You must have seen Courts at places convenient for you and your family. Whenever i drop by Courts i'd see them running attractive promotion and offering great discounts to us!

Josh and i bought our microwave oven at Courts Megastore when they were running the hourly promotion and i also bought my video camera there some time back!!! ^.^

Oh oh oh, my electronic mixer for baking also bought from Courts one!!! =DDD The Tampines Mall outlet. I went to a few places around there to check out the prices and compare the product etc, THEN decided to buy it from Courts cox.. It was on discount. Lolol. Gotta love discounts!!!

If you want great savings along the way on the spending for your household electronics, appliances and furniture etc, signing up for membership with the Courts HomeClub would be a wise choice!!!

For their latest HomeClub member recruitment drive, Courts is creating Singapore’s first-ever nation-wide friendship test!!! DENG DENG. That is where the Friends or Fakes game come into play.

Haha. I don't know! I am nervous! Cox i am one of those who are quite unhelpful on Facebook =X

Even though i am always on the phone, liking pictures on instagram, retweeting tweets and all, but i am generally more unhelpful on Facebook becox a "like" on Facebook is easy BUT..
(Hi me, you look so cute with a phone ^.^)

As i was saying. Lolol. Getting a "Like" on facebook is easy. But when you need a teeny weeny bit more than that, to earn a prize/ prizesss of your choice, WHO will stand for you?!?! Out of the hundreds and thousands of connections on your Facebook.. Who will give you THAT vote?

Now you can find out.


Haha. How many friends do you have on Facebook anyway?! I have like 412 friends *smug face*

Lololol. Is that a lot?! I think so! Most of them are doggies account from Gentlepaws shelter or friends/ acquaintances from Primary, Secondary and Poly i vaguely remember =X

So ah, actually if they don't help me i also can understand one lah =(

Here's how the thing work.

Now is the time to take the friendship test beyond a "Like", identify the friends you can really count on who is willing to earn you REAL GIFTS, with the Friends or Fakes Facebook app.

Let's take a quick look at some of the gifts
Spot Panasonic LCD TV, Nikon Coolpix Camera, X-Mini Speaker, Apple iPod Shuffle etc!

By getting your friends to sign up as Courts HomeClub member, you can bag these great prizes.

More than one person can earn any of the prizes. And prizes are guaranteed so long as you hit the number. Sounds like a good deal for you and me already right.

The catch is, each friend can only sign up once and thus can only cast one vote to someone. So you'd have to act fast and ensure you get their votes.

Especially so if you guys all hang out in cliques and groups, and have lotsa common friends. You have to ACT FAST. If not your friends might all give their votes to another friend in the group and you will have a harder time getting new votes cox as said, each person can only sign up for HomeClub and cast their vote ONCE =OOO

But anyway ah, i look at it, to earn the different prizes you need from 10 / 15 / 20 / 30 / 50 friends. It's not difficult is it?! @.@ But then i look at the list, and the things i want from it are..

Blender (Josh needs one lol), Ottoman (if there is a white one) and the ION Generator. So far i already need 60 votes. And i am not sure if i can!!! Becox..

Oh no.. The more i think about it.. The more this Friends or Fake facebook app IS a test of friendship!!!!!!

Just take me for example.

Yuzhen and Michelle both also my good friends.

If i ask them both to gimmie their votes to help me earn, how are they going to help each other earn the prizes?! And then if they both help me, and they want me to help them back, WHO AM I SUPPOSED TO GIVE MY VOTE TO?!?! =OOOOO

Oh poop. You guys figure it out. Lolol. I have decided to ask for votes from everyone and to give my vote to Baby Yurou on Facebook hahaha. Cox that account also is we sisters set up one =X


Chill, afterall it's all a game to earn prizes that you want *whisper* and a game to remind you who NOT to help the next time when they ask *petty* Lololol.
Okay lah, the real test is to find out who in your current friendlist is actually helpful and actually care to help you when you ask!!! =D So whip out your computer / phone now!

Nuffnangx - Making our life easier

You must have heard of the NuffnangX app for your phone if you follow me on Twitter!

 If not, you must have been living in a cave ← potential line to be picked up by the NuffnangX special patent-pending technology thingy, i know, i am confusing myself too, but i'd explain haha.

You and i are all busy people. Yes, of course. Busy people are busy reading tweets, viewing and loving pictures on instagram, liking statuses on Facebook AND, reading blogs.

Like you are doing now. Thank you ^.^

But have you notice how hard it is to read blogs on our mobile phone!!! =(

I have a few problems.

One, for bloggers who use Blogger as their blogging platform, sometimes it's SOOOO hard to view their pictures and blogs on our mobile phones! Like if i wanna open the picture bigger/ smaller, it'd be swiped to the next post =___=" But if i don't, sometimes the picture is too small, or too big that it gets cut off =(( Why so tragic one, read one blogpost on phone must read until so pekchek =X

Two, IF you wanna switch to "web version" on the phone, you must scroll until tian ya hai jiao then you can find the "View web version" selection = /

Three, whenever i see updates of the blogger tweeting about new post, how do i know if it's worth a read =X Lolol. Give preview lah!!! We are very busy people remember?! Lolol.

And becox of all these problems, i hardly read blogs on my phone anymore.

Chop my passport

2012 is the year my passport got chopped the most number of times. And i am super thankful for it. Becox i get to see more of the world and becox traveling is always fun =D

It's September now and i am going to leave Singapore 3 more times (so far) this year. Flying off tomorrow to BKK and i'd be back on Sunday night. I should be VERY excited about BKK but i am only happy that i'd be going with nice people like Huiwen, Huiting (Huiwen's sister lol) and Becca (Huiwen's bff) defug Huiwen left out her parents only lolol.

And then i'd be flying off on Wednesday with Wendy, Cheesie and Audrey to Taipei and Tokyo and Taipei before we head back Singapore again =D It's gonna be such a girly overload trip i really don't know if my camera memory card can take it or not. And we'd be back on 11th.

And then i'd head up Tokyo again for Emoda touchMe fashion show SO EXCITED ^.^ Be up on the 25th and back on 28th October. I am going to this one with Josh =D I hope so much that we can go see new places this time round and hope i can visit Cleo Hair and Make at Omotesando !!! =D

It is quite amazing where blogging has taken me and where it'd keep bringing me, right =) There's a lot to be thankful for, a lot of people to thank, a lot more things to be done to make it even better.

And i am very happy. But sigh..

I am just going to miss Josh and family and home and doggies a lot when i am away without them.

But nevermind!!! I can go anywhere so long as i am not alone!!! =DDD At least got friends i guess!!! And so long as it's a nice clique i am sure it'd all be fun and exciting ^.^

Also leh, on the days i am back in Singapore i'd have to finish up work. Like a lot of work.

But nevermind!!! Work = Money =D

Very happy and very scared.

I mean there must be a reason why i cannot work out there. Lolol. Stress tolerance level super low. Last time when i work at GV for my attachment, i had nightmare about the popcorn machine going bonkers and keep popping popcorn and hurting people or like i gave people the wrong movie tickets but in the dream i choose to keep quiet about it and hope the couple never come and complain.

Right. Low tolerance for stress but i will survive =D In fact i will do SUPER WELL i think!!! Just keep going~!!! 为了大爱, 为了大爱!!!!!! ^.^

Oh, if Josh and i are going for our Honeymoon after the wedding, that would make me have 4 more trips on the list! =DDD

Alright, go ahead, chop my passport.

Last minute, so?! ^.^

Sponsored post

I've been busy. With what? No idea. But trust me, i've been busy.

I mean if you think about it, eating, sleeping, watching a nice movie with Josh, meeting friends for quick lunch/ dinner and shopping, visiting my family and Baby Yurou are all very essential in my life becox.. No, not becox these are the only things i do lolol, becox..

This is call a balanced life. Balancing out the time i work late, balancing out the days i have events from morning to evening time and balancing out the time i spend in the beauty room just snapping pictures of myself and then spend hours photoshopping it haha. Yeah so there are days where i just have no time to sit down and have a nice chat with my loved ones.

True story, sometimes i am so packed, that i don't even have time to go buy myself outfits for events where there's a particular theme or dress code. Sometimes i have no time to go get presents for my loved ones.

Like my niece Naoki just had her birthday last week but i really really had no time to go get her something, AND pass to her. Now it's over = / i am a horrible aunt. But i'd make it up to her!!

If only i am reminded earlier that..
Jipaban does NEXT DAY delivery for just $4.90!
For just $4.90, you get to enjoy Jipaban's express delivery and receive your items the next working day! How awesome is that?!?! I should have thought of it and send my niece birthday gift on time first, then bring her out for dinner another day! Now a bit too late but better than never! Haha.

Oh and! For every $100 you spend, you get free next day delivery! OHSUM~~~!

And Jipaban ships worldwide so it no matter what country you're from, you can shop on Jipaban!!!

Had to head for dubbing for the movie the other day and it's at Mediacorp and since after the flea, i feel like i have EVEN lesser clothes to wear. Lolol. So the day before i selected some clothes from Jipaban and the next day before noon, i got it. NISE.

Knit cardigan and dress from maryjulian on Jipaban. I love love love the cardi SO MUCH!!! ^.^ It's my favourite cardi now. So easy to match with other stuff somemore.

Thanks to Michie for helping me snap pictures haha.

So leh! If you're like me, somehow, you always find yourself in a rush to do something, to get something, to buy something, and you always feel like at the last minute, you have nothing new to wear for an event happening tomorrow, you can always count on Jipaban.

With various labels that carry different styles, i am sure you can find something for yourself!

Refer to this blogpost i did for all the different brands on Jipaban and the DAILY updates of new items on Jipaban on these brands!!! Also, Friday is NEW SALES ITEMS update day lol. FYI.

Now whenever I am in a rush to get new clothes or gifts for friends, I go to Jipaban to select clothes or to their gift section to see if there's anything i can get for my friends.

Remember this whole outfit?! I selected them from Jipaban the night before the Nuffnangx event and receive them the very next day before noon. Thank you for being reliable, Jipaban!! Lol.

If not i will be in trouble.. Look at all the other bloggers dressing up to fit the theme BLUE.
And yes, i'd be sharing more about Nuffnangx soon!!! ^.^

If you don’t know what to buy for your friend or not sure what colour of what to choose, you can buy gift voucher from Jipaban for your friends so that they can choose what they like!!! Jipaban is like a megamall carrying anything from fashion, to books, to games, to household novelty items, to stationery and more more more!!! See for yourself on Jipaban ^.^

Alright some camho shots of myself in my favourite cardi for now ^.^

Remember, if you need something the NEXT day and you have no time to go get it, look out for it on Jipaban! If you can find it, they can deliver it right to your doorstep the next day!

Boring or Boring

Thank you guys for coming down to the flea today! =) I hope most of you manage to grab something nice! And thanks for all the pictures!!! ^.^

I will keep on shopping haha. So see you next time when my room is exploding again ^.^

A little bit about wedding stuff! Haha. I am now planning my hen's night =DDD

I told gfs i want something that's along the line of massage, mani-pedi, food spread, board games/ card games, hotel stayover/ slumber night party, wake up to hotel breakfast, OMG, awesome.

But i am not so sure if hen's night are supposed to be like that. Or it's supposed to be filled with strip-dancing by some hot chunky men meat, alcoholic drinks, dare-games and first-time-last-time before marriage stuff.

You all think my idea of hen's night nice or not, say real one. I mean look at my list of the confirm invited girls, namely, all my bridesmaids.

Michelle - Boring. Loves to hunchback and everything also "anything lor" YAWNS.

Yuzhen - Safe. Will cry after some alcohol and then blame the salted egg for being salty O.o

Gem - Uncreative and gets red burning cheeks after just a bit of alcohol. Totally uncool. LOL.

Niao Niao - Hum Sup (means she very lecherous) scarly she koala-hug the male stripper o.O

Wendy - Pregnant, we need to think for baby!!! Loud, rowdy activities and alcohols are no good!

Sophie - Okay this one is the only young and happening one i am sorry Sophie you have to go havoc on another person's hen's night.

The numbers are clear, there's only one choice, we are doing boring.


Extra camho shots from the previous tutorial, with my hair tied up ^.^

Didn't realise i stuck the eyelash unevenly haha.

Spider eyes. Lol.

Mid-Autumn festival is here again!!! =DDD It should really be call Mooncake Festival cox that's the only thing that matters to me on Zhong Qiu Jie. Lol. Mooncakes. I LOVE MOONCAKES!!!

My two favourite places that sells the best snowskin mooncakes are Raffles hotel and Bakerzin. I only like liquer flavour ones ^.^

And then my favourite traditional mooncake leh.. Is anywhere that sells those with thick CHEWY baked skin. White lotus preferably but normal lotus is okay. And must have at least double yolks. Lolol. Very fussy.

This year i add one more brand to my favourite mooncake brand! =D Mooncakes from Chocoelf!

They are for one, SUGAR-FREE. So it's great for our parents!!! Of course only eaten in moderation, like anything else. And it's definitely healthier than the usual ones with high sugar content.

So i am happy when Alice from Chocoelf offer me two boxes lol. Actually, it's meant for my dad but nevermind i also get to try some lol.

Traditional X Modern simple black and red packaging =)

Their traditional baked skin with double yolks. My dad's favourite other than pure D24/ Mao Shan Wang durian filling snowskin mooncakes haha ^.^ Thank you, Alice!!!

Snowskin with a chocolate truffle yolk center. Sugar-free lotus paste is used and the flavours include: Vanilla truffle yolk, Berry truffle yolk, Green Tea truffle yolk and Durian truffle yolk. I don't have pictures of the actual product cox they run out of it!!! O.O Must be really yummy right.

But i am thinking their snowskin can't beat this!!! CHOCOLATE SKIN MOONCAKES!!! Comes in such pretty and cute designs too!!! The round Chocolate Skin Mooncakes consist of Dark Lotus, Vanilla Lotus and Cabernet Red Wine Lotus. Red wine one is my favourite =DDD Mini-chocolate mooncakes come in white lotus with macadamia, red lotus with walnut and French orange peel.

By the way, in case you are wondering and in case you are as swaku as my father, the printed designs can be eaten!!! It's actually rice paper lah ^.^

If you're thinking to get these as gifts for your clients or to buy them for your parents, you can visit their shop at TAKA basement (where all the food stores are) or purchase them online HERE!

You can also purchase chocolates from their online store =OO ENJOY!!! =DD
