Making Babies

Here's what me and his offspring (if we ever have) will look like:
Blue eyes, blonde hair! I can't really tell the resemblance, but if i want to be disllusioned, i think the baby has my eyebrows, my lips and his nose and eyes.

To test the authencity of the system, i tried "having babies" with my brothers.

Seems like if there is incest, the babies don't turn out hideous after all!
Me & elder brother's. Hahaa..this one is really cute and i think it really looks kind of like my brother! Must be that faint image of his glasses.
Younger brother & me.

To further test the authencity (i'm really free), i uploaded different photos of me and him and got the same result of the same baby!

Someone once told me that blonde hair, blue eyes babies are considered the "royalty" of the caucasians. Because it's very rare nowadays to get that combination due to the mix of races. Only if both parents are blonde hair, blue eyes then you will get a baby with that make.

However, he enlightened me that if along his linenage, his grandparents or great grandparents have such genes, it's still possible for the baby to turn out "royal" too! But er..abit scary leh..what if your baby turns out black, will your husband accuse you? Maybe his great great great great grandfather is a black that he doesn't know about? Possible, no?

There's also another function to assess your attractiveness and personality based on your features.
I am 91.8% beautiful!

This woman is lax and tolerant with herself and others. An easygoing type, she puts up with just about anything. The woman is pretty conservative in her views; she likes a traditional, established lifestyle.

This liberal, unconventional energetic woman finds the "same old same old" a pretty boring alternative in life. The woman has an inner sense of harmony and balance. She is drawn towards nature. If she feels out of balance or harmony, she can go someplace to be alone and enjoy the landscape; it makes her feel at peace.

She may lean toward the "eco" movement and "green living". This woman is a tough customer. She needs to feel total satisfaction with her what she buys; otherwise she is out the door. This woman is disciplined and methodical and may be successful in life as a solid businessperson.

An optimistic woman, her strong, independent personality may be reflected in her music and clothing tastes. This woman can be very opinionated and authoritative. She makes an excellent leader or manager.

She is successful and well-admired within her career field, in business or in politics. She radiates self-assurance. This woman has a tendency to hang on to what she owns. She may be somewhat of a hoarder. (The garage may give her away.) She collects everything: old magazines, newspaper clippings, you name it.
My older brother is 78.5%. Still attractive! I guess he scored lower because of his round face. Hahaha!
I was quite happy with the results (because i got 91.8%) but i wanted to be fair, so i did another test. I googled Ru Hua, the epitome of ugly.

SHE GOT 91.7%!!!

Not believing, i tried an ape next...93.8%!!!! The monkey is even more attractive than me! Must be that big wide smile!So i guess, my younger brother's attractiveness (92.8%, which is higher than me) must not be real.

72 storeys above

We feel alittle light-headed after 20 minutes on the helipad. No, it wasn't alcohol because i had none. My friend reckons its the thin air compared to ground level. If that is true, it's a lethal combination with alcohol. Imagine someone unknowingly committing suicide.

Pity this was a blur.
Everyone had a temporary bad hair day but the views were worth it.

Japanese Survival Phrases

So much for raving about my curls. They "died" before my lover even got to run his fingers through it. I still wouldn't say its a waste though, because at least it didn't seem to have made my hair any frizzier (knowing how such treatments can be ultra damaging). And i haven't done this before so i won't know, maybe soft curls just don't last as long?

Still, i am raving about Japan and having Tokyo withdrawal syndromes.

Here are some phrases to swear by when you visit Japan:

Sumimasen- Excuse me.

Use it for everything. From starting with this phrase before you ask for directions, to asking to be shown a product, to asking to get through.

YMCA Doko Desuka- Where is YMCA?

Korewa Ko Ko desu- Nearby.
Sorewa Soko- Abit further.
Arewa asoko desu- very far

Ikura Desuka- How much is this?
Kaban- Bag
Ku Tsu- Shoes
Ginkoo- Bank

Discounto - self explainatory
Ta Ka- i- Expensive.

Ii-e (prounced as E A)- No.

Ja, Kore O Kudasai- I'll take this.

Wakari Masen Nihongo- I don't understand Japanese ( i use this ALOT to stop the salesgirls from talking to you ALOT.I felt rude not being able to reply them. Or i smile foolishly, and they probably think i'm mute/deaf.So i use this powerful phrase. Beats my friend saying VERY SLOWLY in English..." I Doooooon't uuuuuuuunderstaaaaaaaand". They don't understand you either.)

Wa Ka Li Mashitake (prounouced as Mas-Ta) Eego- Do you understand English?

Mo Tsu To Yasuky Shi E Ku Da Sai- Cheaper please (although you hardly use this because there is no culture of barganing in Japan unlike in Thailand or Hong Kong)

Ocha- Tea

Misu- Water

Soo Deska- So I see

Gomeinasai- Sorry (but i realised even if you want to say sorry, the Japanese use sumimasen.)

Ok, i didn't find out how to say "That One" which will be VERY USEFUL. Sometimes pointing is not enough if the item is far from reach. I have a feeling i can use Soko (which means there, that) and point. I used that. Better than to point silently or to point and go urgh urgh urgh?

In general, you can go to Japan knowing nothing but recognising Chinese characters is advantageous because 30% of their characters are Mandarin. Some can speak English vaguely, but most can understand basic words like airport,water,OK!

Japan is rather anti-tourists because their museums have no translations but Japanese, only 20% of restaurants have an English menu. I pointed to a delicious looking picture of meat with bean spourts and rice. Turns out to be pig's liver. Yucks!

I hope that happens to you too. That's the fun in life. The unexpected.

P.S i just realised when i mean survival phrases....they pretty much mean SHOPPING survival phrases. HAHAHA!

UPDATED: Post Tokyo

Baggage limit was 20Kg. My heart was pounding when i checked in. Japan has no tax refund policy for tourists! @#(*&#)$()(@#*(&(@
I think i look really different with the new hair-style. Nowhere near a Kawai-i girl though.
Ignore the pout, i feel like punching myself too. But i love the curls! Very soft waves. I am contemplating going to Japan every once a year for a hairdo.
I'm the only one who bought that many food stuff. Can't help it, i have a family of 5. Many mouths to feed. And when i'm on a holiday, i tend to think of the less fortunate at home. Hahaha! I bought so many presents for family and boyfriend. I miss him so much.
I liked this the most! I expected to see a lot more funny stuff in Japan (presumed Land of Kinks) but i was disappointed. It's Jell-O, in case you're wondering.
I have one more box to sell. Starting price: $15. C cup. Please leave a comment with your name, email and bid. Highest bidder for the sweetest boobs wins.

AQ, my brother's lead singer is burrying his face in it. I told my brother to share it with his band, but too bad AQ got to it first. He finished them BOTH within seconds! He smacked his lips and said they were the sweetest boobs he has ever tasted. I'm a little sad he didn't appreciate the beauty of it a little longer.

Thankfully, it's not one of those novelty thing that looks nice but tastes bad. Told you the Japanese will never make anything that's no good/ taste bad.
Presents for the older brother. He's in general less fussy than the younger one.
The younger one got a pussy, i mean puPPy outfit. So he can go Halloween now that he's legal.
Don't you love this bin?My Coach clutch which will no longer be mine if you bid any higher than $400.
My dad and mum are going to scold me when they open the cabinet to see i've stolen my brothers' shoe boxes to keep mine in. Ok, maybe i will update again if i am selling any.
My Gucci right sized wallet with charm attached. It can also be no longer mine if you bid any higher than $600.

I am not really a person of labels, i bought them because i believe they are the designs not available in Singapore and i never would buy these expensive labels in Singapore and i am on HOLIDAY!! So i indulged. I bought all the funny stuff that i saw. Cannot resist. I like such things, everyone knows that!

M&M ear phones for sale. Starting price: $35.

Money Note Facial Blotter. Starting price: $10.

Bid, bid bid! Spot the fake. It's a game where you take turns pulling the poky sticks out. 2 of them are rigged which will make the rest explode in your face. Heart attack, no? So fun. Can't wait to use this to entertain my boyfriend's friends. I am the girl with the COOL games. Hahaha!
Lace socks. Starting price: $4

Cute cake accessories basket (small size). Starting price: $5
They had soooo many costumes for purchase in Japan, but nothing really caught my eye. Uniforms and Nurses are so typical. The uniform i felt was not realistic, it's not a Singapore school (but i think Singaporean men will like). Nurse outfit i think i can mix and match on my own.

The only one i got was this which is like a Manga French Maid outfit.

A bikini set with head set and hand cuffs. Free size. Starting price: $120

My mum feels i'm too old for these. Starting Price: $10 each (headband is not for sale)

I bought the very nice box to store my undies. But it's too high to slide it under my shelves in the wardrobe!$)(*%$*#

Pokka Dot Box (about 15 cm deep) Starting Price: $15

Baguette keyboard wrist rest: $5 (no bidding, flat can buy this at Action City in Singapore for $12)

I will keep the Burger beach mat for our dates on the beach. The watermelon and ice-cream pouch Starting Price: $25
Contemplating if i should give this one up.
or this one. How much would you give?
This is meant to be free size. But it's kinda tight for me for the bottom half.

Halter broadway suit. Starting Price: $120
Ace Stockings Starting Price: $30
Besides my curls, look what i did to my legs in Japan! I TATTOOED them!

Cool huh! They're stockings. Not for sale ;p Too cool. My Miss Selfridge denim mini skirt is for sale though. $10 (it's too short for me now). Size 8.I will keep one so the other is for sale.$4.
I love my Tokyo trinklets. Look at the rabbit earring with a pearl as its tail!
I am somehow into the 'card' design now.
Free Size. Starting Price: $69

It's a very different type of dress, don't you think?
Dream Catcher charm necklace. Starting Price: $15 . SOLD
The middle one is for sale. I have too many blues.
