Pores + Things I Look Forward To



Remember how i complained about having ugly pores? well, since my facial cleanser was running out. last sunday after a sauna session with my cousin, i decided to change my facial cleanser to this..St.Ives Clear Pore Cleanser. The good thing about St.Ives is that, it is 100% soap free, alcohol free AND wont clog my pores.. Just the thing for me. I have only been using this for 2 days.. and i know its too early to say that i can see some difference to my skin, especially my pores but i feel difference lah.. yeaaayyy :-D



On another note, im patiently waiting for Mariah Carey's album E=MC2 to fall this April 16.

... and

Im going to watch this later.

Love Song

I heard this song on the radio while driving and i instantly got hooked. As soon as i reached home, i download terus..



Head under water
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
The breathing gets harder, even I know that
Made room for me but it's too soon to see
If I'm happy in your hands
I'm unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I'm needin a better
Reason to write you a love song today

I learned the hard way
That they all say things you want to hear
And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you and
Your twisted words,
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I'm trying to let you hear me as I am

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I'm needin a better
Reason to write you a love song today

Promise me that you'll leave the light on
To help me see with daylight, my guide, gone
'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me
Because I say
I won't write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this

Is that why you wanted a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don't want it for a minute
Babe, I'll walk the seven seas when I believe that
There's a reason to
Write you a love song today

Reminisce

Just now, while someone was having a conversation with me i unintentionally spaced out. I know, how rude of me ;-P the conversation wasnt boring me out or anything, he (the person that i was having a conversation with) was telling me of how nice his last vacation was. Usually, i would be all ears but i dunno, i just wasnt my usual self. maybe its because of the excessive baking i had today hahaha. i made 21 muffins today! AND a loaf of bread. But im not going to talk about it in this post..maybe in the next post.

Anyways, like i said, i wasnt being my usual self. I should be having a great time this week, and i was until one thought of someone crossed my mind and made me reminisce the good old times we had. It made me wonder what's he doing now? does he ever think of me?..then i felt silly thinking that way. Its as if reality came and gave me a good knocking on the head.


I kinda miss him. Again, yea i know i sound silly saying this.. but i cant help it. although we're not that close anymore (God only knows why) i just hope he's well and happy wherever he is.

Pammie The Baker

Since i have some time off from doing my research, i have been baking. Yesterday i baked wholemeal donuts (yes, baked.. not fried. Its a bit healthier :-D) which turned out to taste like wholemeal bread haha. Actually, i wasnt planning on using wholemeal flour but while i was searching for my ingredients, i saw mom's wholemeal flour so i got this idea of instead of using the usual plain flour, why not use wholemeal flour? just to experiment. The final product was ok, i guess. The folks liked it hehe.



Today, I made banana muffin. Thanks to Angel who shared me the recipe :-D After i printed out the recipe, i wasted no time. I went and gathered the ingredients and started on my muffins..

Before..

Tada..


I managed to make 9 muffins. There's 4 left hehe.. i ate 2, and dad ate 3. I think im going to make a dozen more this evening so that there will be enough for my family

All About Pores

Having large pores is so unappealing. I know some of you girls will agree with me here hehe. I realize my pores are larger than before, so i googled about reducing size of pores, and i ended up at eHow.

Step 1:
Finding the right products though can be a bit of a challenge since there are so many different cleansers on the market. The size of your pores are determines by some different factors, like your genes, sex, diet, environment, drug use and your overall health. Here are some helpful tips in helping minimize your pores. * Try a clay mask first for your face to clean your pores out. With clay mask they take out the excess oils beneath the skin and clean the pores.

Step 2:
* If you have alot of black or white heads on your face make sure that you cleanse your skin regularly (twice a day) and avoid squeezing them. If you squeeze your pores regularly can damage your pores and skins elasticity making it hard to turn the pore back to its normal size. * Use skin care products that contain salicylic, lactic or glycolic acids, these acids help remove the excess oil from your skin.

Step 3:
* Make sure that you hydrate yourself! Drinking water is essential for healthy looking skin from the inside out. *Try gentle exfoliaters to cleanse the skin. You can even use baking soda to aid in dislodging a blackhead. It can also help the pore shrink back to its original size.

Step 4:
* Pore reducing product solutions for inflamed pores can be purchased as well. They help the pores heal faster and shrink back to their original size. Clinique has a great product that I can personally recommend! * You can also steam your face by putting some hot water in a bowl and let your face down forward letting the water moisture sink in through your skin and pores for about ten minutes. The steam is great for opening up your pores and dislodging all the dirt that is in your pores.

Step 5:
* Moisturize your face on a regular basis. * Use a toner to help cleanse your face on a regular basis. Toner's help in removing soap residue, dead skin cells, and makeup all of which can clog pores and make them appear larger.

Step 6:
Although you can not change your pores you can help manage them and help them appear smaller by tightening the skin around them. Good luck and I hope these tips help you.

Lets just hope these ugly pores will shrink!

Homemade.

In the afternoon, mom came into my room while i was reading a back issue of Reader's Digest. Then i said "lets have pizza tonight?" so we did. Mom made the crust, i made the topping.

Ok, lets pop it into the oven, shall we?

Yeaayyy.. all done!

My slice.. but before that, i had some papaya 10 minutes earlier. Im trying to get use to having fruits BEFORE my meal.

Papaya.. my favourite fruit

Right after church, my cuzzies asked if i wanted to join them tonight jalan-jalan cari makan but i passed the offer with a heavy heart.*siiigghh* Ive got some things to do and i guess thats one of the sacrifices that i have to make. for now.

Oh, a friend of mine called me in the evening asking me whether i want to apply for a job vacancy at his place of work. I said i'll think about it. He has been asking me a quite number of times already since last year. Everytime there's a spot, he'll be notifying me about it. i REALLY appreciate it, but like i said.. I'LL THINK ABOUT IT.

I'll be up all night doing my work.. have a nice weekend ya'll coz i know i wont :(

I R NOT ANGRY.

Angry



Today when i woke up, i felt like a million bucks. The sun was shining, it was hot. i felt like it was a perfect day to continue doing my research. Ever since i got the text message saying that the research proposal due date has been postponed to the 27th, i have put aside my journals, and discontinued doing my research. The past week was HELL. I only got like, 4 or 5 hours of sleep probably for the whole week and as a result, i have pimples (eee!!) and dark circles around my eyes, which make me look like a panda.. PANDA EYES! haiya, jatuhlah saham hahaha.

Anyways, back to my story. Like i said, i was feeling great when somebody came along and decided ruin it. Thanks. Im the type of person who dont get pissed that easily but i was in the middle of doing my chapter 2 when someone said something bad which i tersinggung 10 tahun. And then asked whether what he said was bad? omg, i cant believe you asked that. I have feelings and emotions ok? if you say something bad, ofcourse i'll be sakit hati. Im not a friggin robot. I was so not in the mood, so i logged out from my ym terus.

I just looked outside of my window, i see its going to rain. again.

Not True.

After blen's comment on the last post, i googled up about heated bottled water and found this from the American Cancer Society at http://www.cancer.org/ :


Email:
The original version of this email begins by saying “Many are unaware of poisoning caused by re-using plastic bottles,” and says “bottles are safe for one-time use only; if you must keep them longer, it should be or no more than a few days, a week max, and keep them away from heat as well.” The email says the bottles contain DEHA, which it calls a potential carcinogen.

A newer (2007) version of the email quotes an unidentified doctor as saying women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car because the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer.

Fact:
These emails are apparently based on a student’s college thesis. In fact, DEHA is not inherent in the plastic used to make these bottles, and even if it was the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says DEHA "cannot reasonably be anticipated to cause cancer, teratogenic effects, immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity, gene mutations, liver, kidney, reproductive, or developmental toxicity or other serious or irreversible chronic health effects." Meanwhile, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), says diethylhexyl adipate "is not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans."


So i guess the text message was a hoax.

Ladies, Listen Up

Cancer Cure Ribbon



" Ladies, please avoid drinking bottled water kept in your car. The heat and plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue. Please be careful and pass this message to every woman that you care "


That was a text message that i received just a while ago from a nurse friend. I dont know how true this is, but just to be safe.. please ladies, stop drinking those bottled water that you keep in your car. I know i wont be anymore.



+++++++++++++

Since the election is tomorrow, i urge all my fellow Malaysians to exercise your rights to vote. I wont be voting tomorrow, tia sempat register lah. If you are unsure where your place to vote is, you can check so at http://daftarj.spr.gov.my/

I Am Bz



This is how both my desks currently look like..lots of papers huh? Those are actually journals for my research reference. Havent gotten that much sleep for a few days, but i guess thats what i have to sacrifice for now. Thank god for caffeine..nope, i dont drink coffee (well, not anymore) i get my supply of caffeine from my green tea! :-D No wonder la i had a hard time to sleep last night. The night before, i went to bed at 4am and woke up at 10am, didnt have any naps during the day and i wasnt even a bit sleepy yet when the clock hit 2am. At 4am, i decided to call it a night but i still wasnt sleepy yet..so what's a girl to do? i took my stability ball and did 100 crunches on it haha. They say doing crunches on a stability ball gives better results. So lets see if its true. Will update on this in a month. Anywho, if it wasnt because i was damn hungry at that tiime, i seriously could go for another hundred hehe. After that i paksa myself to sleep.

My research proposal duedate is on the 17th.. have another 2 chapters to do. I will not be posting for while because until my work is done, i am going to dedicate my life to my research thingy. Sometimes i feel its impossible to finish this up on time..but as my friend puts it "PAMMIE BOLEH!!" i will keep a positive mind.

Have a nice day, y'all!
