Life in Photos 7

Celebrated my birthday at work together with other September celebrants in our unit. We used gloves as balloons. ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favorite flowers are the cherry blossoms. I can’t resist taking a photo of the one I found at the mall even if they’re not real. Hopefully I can go to Japan someday and see real ones.

Been plant shopping a lot lately with my mom and I got this little plant for free! My desk is its home.

That’s one of my favorite photo I had when we went for a vacation in 4 Southeast Asian countries. That one was taken in Sentosa, Singapore

Did I mention my blog was nominated for Bloggys 2015? It’s crazy! After years of blogging as a hobby, I’m finally nominated for something. Thank you to all who nominated for me and please do support my blog and vote here.

I hated my natural hair before and I had it chemically straightened twice. It damaged my hair so I decided to just embrace my waves and I am loving it! Here’s what my hair looks like when I wake up in the morning. I rarely brush it cuz it becomes frizzy and poofy if I do.

I was obsessed with this flower that we purchased. It’s called Stargazer and it was big! The scent fills the entire room and it just smells amazing plus it looks really vibrant. Now the flowers fell off and I can’t wait for it to bloom again.

Apart from the party we had at work, my family and I also celebrated it at home. My mom bought me this delicious chocolate cake. Lol Inday is my family nickname. It’sย a term of endearment for a girl in the family.

OMG! You can’t believe how tasty these fries are. It has cheese, bacon, mushroom and jalapeno. I usually go for them after work when I have the morning shift.

How about you? How was your month so far?

    Omg, you are so lucky you have naturally wavy hair?! Most Asians I know have stick straight hair… that gets messy when they wake up. LOL. That is me. My hair is almost never flattering unless I do something to it! I am really jealous of you!!!

      Lol this makes me love my hair more! I try to not put it in a tight ponytail cuz it ruins the hair and creates hair creases. It doesn’t always look that good especially it’s really hot here when I wear it down. I love straight hair too but I love my natural waves more since it doesn’t require any effort. Love your hair too Sharon, just letting you know.

    Happy birthday, Alissa! Using the gloves as make-shifts balloons is an awesome idea though they look a bit creepy to me ’cause they’re all white, lol.

    Belated Happy Birthday!! We’re quite opposite when it comes to the hair part… I’m currently sporting a mid-length hair but I don’t feel like it would fit my naturally straight hair so I usually curl it (i usually put it into bun since I don’t really like using curling iron) everyday. Ohh! Congrats on your nomination!!

      I put it in a bun too to naturally add and manage my curls. ๐Ÿ™‚ I rarely straighten it now. Thank you!
