Hi everyone and welcome to my space.

This is where I’ll share my stories through pictures and I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do creating them.

Who Wants a $100 Birthday Voucher???

No, I’m not doing a give away or anything like that.

I did get emails from brands or shops that I’ve dealt with in the past, offering me birthday vouchers to be used for my next purchase with them.

It’s mostly $5 to $10 vouchers and I do appreciate them. A fixed amount off from my next total purchase from them? Hell yeah!

What I don’t like among all the birthday vouchers is the hidden T&C.

In my case it was from a major eye wear brand, offering $100 off simply because it was my birthday.

The catch?? I have to spend at least $300 FIRST in order to be able to use the $100 voucher for that purchase.

Binned the email.

End of story.

Here Comes the Bride!

So we all know about the American actress who married a British prince not too long ago.

It was televised world-wide, a lot of press coverage and intense scrutiny surrounding the couple from the very beginning until now.

Sure, people can say what they want about the motives, the event, the past lives and so on about the couple.

What annoys me the most is the unflattering titles of news articles, specifically about the bride.

Why do you guys (journalists) like to start off your piece with….. being snubbed/not dressed as per protocol/not sitting the proper way/showing too much skin/not showing skin at all/not being herself/being pretentious/has already spent more than $XX on her wardrobe and so on.

PLEASEย :

1.ย  Write about her current work/initiatives

2. Leave the girl alone. Being married is the start of a new life, and to someone who is the total opposite of herself makes it a lot harder for her to adjust.

3. Write more positive articles. The world has too much negative press already, I don’t need any more.

4. Don’t compare her to anyone else. She only knows how to be herself.

 

 

Superstition I Grew Up With #2

DON’T SIT ON THE TOP OF THE STAIRCASE OR …

That is the most common warning parents say to their children, or from grandparents to their grandchildren.

Do you know what happens when you insist on sitting there?

You’ll marry an old man.

And this is only applicable to girls.

What happens if a boy were to sit on the top of the staircase?

Who knows? Maybe he’ll marry an old woman instead??ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Moral of the story: You might fall and hurt yourself when you sit at a high traffic area, which is at the top most of the staircase.

If you really really want (or need) to sit on a staircase, choose the middle or the bottom most of the staircase.

Why would you need to sit there in the first place anyway?

My Root Canal Adventure (III)

Continued from here

Why I chose root canal:

1 . I want to save my tooth as opposed to having it extracted. A loss of tooth may not be a big deal at first, but it will alter the space or gaps between the remainder teeth. A missing tooth can weaken the overall structure of the mouth which will lead to more issues later on in life.

2 . The cost of replacing a tooth with an artificial one is more expensive compared to saving the tooth by root canal. It is not only more expensive, but also time consuming.

So there you go, the story of my root canal (appointment 1) session. I have 2 more appointments to attend to and another 2 for a crown on my tooth. Stay tuned!
