Life Updates. And Some Empties

The year always passes by most quickly in the beginning and at the end. And don’t you feel the middle of the year is such a drag? Once we past October, everything goes fast forward and the next thing we know, it’s March again. Crazy! I’ve been trying to think what I’ve done so far, and honestly, nothing much. I did quite well in the fitness front, right up until Chinese New Year, then everything went to a halt. No thanks to viral fever and cough of death. I’m easing back into it instead of charging ahead but that’s also because it’s so bloody hot lately, and there is no air conditioning in the gym. I don’t even have to do anything and I’d sweat bucket loads. And feel faint. And stuffy. And nauseated. Then my super motivated inner self screams “LIES! EXCUSES! You just don’t want to move your lazy ass!” Well, maybe. Once the momentum stops, it takes a lot of effort to pick up again.

I’ve also been using up a few things since January, and because I want to throw them out instead of leaving them in the bag, I thought I’d just talk about them now.

I’ve been using cleansing balms since I used up my Dior cleansing oil, and I find that I prefer oils. So much faster. So I bought a large bottle of Dermalogica Pre Cleanse. This Antipodes Hallelujah cleanser is good, but it’s so hard to get to the bottom of this bottle. I have to turn it upside down and scrape the bottoms as much as I could. Needless to say, the Worship serum is awesome. This is my 3rd bottle and I’m onto my 4th.

As for makeup, I am throwing out my RMS ‘un’cover up because it feels drier than usual. It doesn’t apply as well as it used to, and I made a good dent so I decided to say good bye. The NARS eye primer is the best I’ve tried, and I’m throwing this out even though it’s working well because it’s already 3 years! Shows I don’t prime very often. The Bobbi Brown liquid liner has dried up, and Clinique mascara has been opened for 6 months and the Dior Lip Glow is all gone. I’m quite happy with my effort, actually.

I discovered Chloe EDT when I was in Singapore and I really like it. I’m contemplating buying a full sized bottle but I still have a few other bottles of perfume. I’m going to run out of my Chanel Mademoiselle, so once I’m done with that, then maybe I can buy a new one?

Ashton is talking a lot. He knows how to call everyone now, says “put back”, “walk walk”, and all the other gibberish only I understand. When he wants milk, he says “mi mi”, when it’s hot he says “ot”, and when he doesn’t like something, he just makes all those annoying sounds. Hahahah! I speak in English and Cantonese with him so he sometimes speaks in Cantonese as well. He’s really good at signing and also whining! And, he’s got a short temper. It’s funny to see him blow his top. I sometimes make him angry just to see his reaction. I know, crazy mom. He’s got a good sense of humor, so don’t worry. Heh.

OK the little one is making lots of noise so I’m going now. What have you been up to?
