Funny Faces

31 May

I haven’t posted anything funny about myself lately… work must be boring… school time was much more interesting… but anyways, me poking fun at myself…

 Very attractive but not as attractive as this face here:

 Chubby asian kid!

Ahaha, I will post up more beauty reviews and such as I haven’t done that in a while… perhaps work on other categories as well… *hint to look forward to future posts!

Snow White? Is that you?

30 May

No sorry… it’s just a Dodo… that is extinct… can’t help you find the person you are looking for…

People have questioned about why I call myself Dodo… and I agree but the nickname has kinda stuck throughout the years. I was nicknamed that since Gr. 6 by a person who thought it would be fun to multiply the first two letters of my name resulting in Dodo… yeah… at least my initials don’t end up being H^2 (H-squared)… Hubert Hwang… heh.

Snow in May?! And more?!

29 May

Yeah, crazy Alberta weather it has happened again!!!

So it is forcasted that it will rain/snow again tomorrow… makes me want to go RAWR!!!

This was dinner… pan-cooked pizza… yummm pepperoni…

MAPping again…

26 May

Yeah… I was a MAP for a while… but I have a good reason…

Just letting you all know drugs are NOT the answer to everything…

These meds are antibiotics for treating my acne orally… not fun to take but my skin has improved as you can sort of tell from the above photo. Sadly the scars will stay for a while so still working on using Bio-Oil and it’s only been about a month since I’ve started using it and happy to say my skin feels softer and moisterized but I don’t know about it for reducing my acne scars yet.

I will be MAPping for a while… work is pretty tough. >.<

Tootsie Tippers

I have never done a post of shoes before so I recently got new shoes and a question popped up.

Would you wear uncomfortable shoes if they were cute?

I am a very picky shopper when it comes to clothes and shoes… sorry if it is a bad thing. >.< But I picked up two pairs of shoes from Walmart (hooray for cheap but cute shoes) and they are both very cute.

 Left 2 shoes = old shoes, Right 2 shoes are the new ones. (there are newspapers in the farthest right to stretch them)

Bad thing is despite the shoes being my size (feet length wise) it is not wide enough. Here are my feet:

Don’t they remind you of duck feet? It may look slim… but it’s not photography can be quite deceiving. Hopefully I will do another post of feet types and shapes… but putting that aside because my feet resembles a duck’s feet I always have difficulty finding shoes that are comfortable. My parents won’t let me venture in the realm of heels so heels are always out of question when it comes to shoe shopping (but I will get myself a pair of heels soon hopefully >.< fingers crossed!).

With any kind of shoes I am always trying to squash my feet into a pair of nice shoes and it hurts like heck!! So from trial and error I have come up with ways of coping with the pain.

1. Decide if the pain is worth it for the pair of shoes – I always choose shoes that I can break in easily… patent leather isn’t my thing for that reason or it can be worn right away like flats (I don’t own any flats by the way…)

2. Break in the shoes – This for me takes about 10 days of wear… of course not consecutively as I wouldn’t want blisters popping and more blisters forming for the 10 days I switch on and off.

3. For the rubbing shoe burning feeling – I put on crushed aspirin on the blister or rubbed spot and it would calm down.

4. For stretching the shoe – To make that break in faster for the shoes I put on the thickest pair of socks that I own and mash my foot into the shoe (uncomfortable I know) and it will stretch the shoe out more quickly and reduce the amount of days trying to break in the shoe.

Well, those are my tips… I will most likely post up more things about feet since they play such an important role in our daily lives and function.

Bring back the Wonder

16 May

The Wonder Girls are officially back with a new single called 2 Different Tears. They released 3 different versions of the song. 1 in English, 1 in Korean, and 1 in Chinese (Mandarin). Out of the three I liked the English one the best so I’ll put the MV here:

Support the girls and buy their album on iTumes!
