Waxing for the first time (:

After saying for 2 years that I want to do a Brazillian wax, I finally went for one on Thursday *claps*

Initially, I made an appointment with Spa Haven BUT after reading some bad comments about it (like how they don’t change the sticks after every application), I canceled my appointment and booked one with Strip instead. Better to stick with the well-known brands even though they might be slightly pricer.

When I told my mum I was going for a wax (I tried to pass it off as a joke), she went, “WHERE GOT PEOPLE SHAVE DOWN THERE ONE? AND YOU ARE EXPOSING YOUR PRIVATES TO STRANGERS?!” In mandarin, of course. I tried to explain a little to her like better hygiene and etc but she still didn’t understand. So we kind of left the topic hanging. She disapproves but as usual, I have my freedom (:

So, I met Mabel on Thursday and she went waited for me while I went in. The place was rather nice but I am surprised by/at/with how small the outlet is O.o It’s like twice of the size of Perlini’s outlet in J8. Quite small.

So I went into the room and was quite impressed with the room deco and lightings. But when the waxing lady came in and switched on the florescent light, I was -.- DARN! The atmosphere, GONE! But I guess it has to be done. We don’t want a sloppy job, yes? The waxing lady was pretty nice and talked to me throughout the process. From my braces to school to post-wax care.

I was most surprised at how PAINLESS it was. Maybe it’s because it’s white chocolate vanilla wax. But it’s not as painful as I’ve expected (: Then again, the lady said I have a pretty high threshold for pain. Hmmm.

Afterwards, I was introduced to a whole range of post-care stuff that are WAY expensive! But I got the X’ed Out cream and the scrub (frigging expensive!). I also signed up for the student package. I ended up $398 lighter than before I went for the wax O.o (Gosh, whenever HAIR is concern, I spend ALOT!)

So yups(: Virgin wax done!

2 items on things to do before I turn 21 and 2 items DONE! Clubbing and waxing! Good job, Shan! (:

Huishan is a very confused girl.

Ohmygod. The new Nano-chromatics is the bane of my wallet!

Current Situation

I have a Samsung Omnia that is an excellent camera, phone, movie and music player. The only problem is that I hate the earphones. It’s super ugly and it uses a special port. Not the normal hole that you can plug in. This means that I have to bring 2 earphones out – one for my ipod and the other for my Samsung.

I have a iPod nano that is 2 years old. It’s the first generation one! 4GB, white. It’s looking a little worse for wear and has a faulty hold button.

What I need

Well…I want to have a portable music player, a movie player and a gaming console.

I know Omnia can do all of the above but I have this thing against having all my entertainment and concentrating my stuff into one device. “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” and that kind of thing. Besides, my phone is my life! If I download games into it, and it crashes…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My pictures! My contacts! My messages!

Besides, I think I am taxing Omny too much. The battery life is not enough for my usage! Wifi, camera, messaging and document viewer/creation. If I REALLY use it for music, movies and games, I think I might need to charge it EVERYDAY.

So yes. I need something that can satisfy all three characteristic I mention. Oh and. HAS.TO.BE.PRETTY.

The Candidates

Nintendo DS Lite

Nintendo DS

Nintendo DS Lite

I don’t think it can play music or movies (verifications? answers?) but I love it for its gaming functioning!

HELLO? I was super-glued to my GameBoy when I was a little girl! So having another handheld gaming console will be WOW! Imagine! Playing games all the way from AMK to Boon Lay! Then while waiting in the long queue of 179. Then on 179. See! It will be my new buddy buddy!

Love the colour as well! (The primary reason why it beats PSP :P)

Option 1: Buy this and stick with Omny and old iPod. Colour my world!


Orange, Red, Pink!

Nano-Chromatic : Orange, Red, Pink!

It satisfies 2 out of the 3 functions I want. Movies and music! Genius sounds interesting too! Then again, programs like it might be more irritating than useful (越帮越忙). I might just end up “abandoning” the function. Hmm.

I like that I can rotate the screen!

And of course, I love the colors! I mean, white iPod and black Omnia? MAJOR BOREDOM! With the pretty colors and increase storage size (16GB), I can play plenty of videos and songs without really worrying about running out of space.

Option 2: Buy this, spice up your life with the colors and forget about gaming.


iPod Touch

iPod Touch

See! I didn’t pay much attention to iTouch until I saw @Janellee‘s MSN nick. It brought it to my attention and I just went to check out the video.


It satisfies all 3 requirements!!!

BUT! I think if I get an iTouch, I will underutilized (damn it! no present tense?!) it? There’s overlap of functions of Omny and iTouch. I won’t use iTouch for Wifi and I won’t use the stores and stuff. So basically, it’s just BLAH.

Besides, it’s slight more expensive with a smaller storage. Like $348 for a 8GB ! WAH LIEW!

BUT! Oh my. The games! The games!!!!!!!! Omg. Whenever I play racing games, my body will turn when I swerve the car in the game! It used to be funny and useless. BUT HELLO?! It will actually be useful now!! 😀

I hate that there’s no colours for it. And how it looks like any other iPhone (hate hate hate!).

Option 3: Buy this and don’t care about the tiny storage space and overlap of functions + boring colour.



If you are me, what will you do? Which one will you choose?

My budget is less than $400!

Then again, should I even buy? Keep the money in the bank and earn pathetic interest? *sigh*
