random fact {no.6} + updates!

I was having marinated mussels some time ago and got annoyed by the amount of grit one particular mussel was having. After crunching into my fifth piece of grit, I decided to check if it was really grit or if I was biting into a broken piece of mussel shell (because then, I wouldn't feel so bad for digesting bits of calcium? Lol).

Turned out it was neither. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself looking at baby-sized pearls :) So I guess the random fact here is that I have eaten pearls? Haha!

I only bit into another two pearls after that...

I'm probably going to poop the rest out like Mr. Polar Bear here.

See random facts {no.1}, {no.2}, {no.3}, {no.4} and {no.5}! One more to go before I hand this tag to fifteen lovely bloggers! >:)

Also, me reckons it is time for some major updates! :

  • i received a package from singapore last week from my bestie julynn from the juleth dimension! it has the cutest pouch which i plan to use for my blackwhiteberry, a cute keychain with the saying "its ok to be silly sometimes" (except that i'm silly almost every other time) with my name engraved on the back and of course, a postcard written with lots of love! <3
  • thank you to those who commented on my last post. it kept me positive through the rest of the week. i heart you girls so much! 
  • i've got my cousin's cocktail-themed wedding early next month, which reminds me that i really have to go hunt for a dress asap!
  • i scored a pair of mng jeans at the opportunity store for $7 last weekend! byebye ebay, i've found a new substitute for cheap thrills! haha!
  • HAS ANYONE TRIED THE KFC DOUBLE DOWN BURGER YET?? i never thought i would live to see the day when bacon would be sandwiched between chicken breasts...
  • i've replaced the google follower's box with an image because it started looking like a shelf of head trophies. i hope it suits you better too :)
  • i am planning to phase out of bloggers.com and blogcatalog as i am quite tired of responding to people who oh-so-subtly coerse me into visiting their seo sites or to review/vote to increase their ratings. i don't regret joining these sites as i have made some wonderful friends (you know who you are!!) but i think it is time i move on :)
  • to make up from my withdrawals from the sites above, i'll be more active on facebook! it won't be my personal account just in case i get an add from the odd weirdo or two, but i hope we can keep in touch there instead!
  • i am still finding that one crazy thing to do. any (cheap) suggestions??
  • also a big BIG thank you to katie leigh of goodbyeanimosity and kim phan from pseudovisual for letting me share their amazing photos on my tumblr!! kim phan's photo of her super adorable dog ein having a stache is on queue, so watch out for it on the sidebar! but you can view katie's cute photo -->here<-- .you girls rock! 
  • ah, this just came in recently. i've been awarded the stylish blogger award by balqis from part and parcel of life, so expect more random facts in the near future! :D thank you so much balqis!! you're a gem! x
  • i found this awesome quote on girlfriend iswari's blog and i told here i'd share it with you lot in my next post but i couldn't wait! :

    "religion is like a penis. it's fine to have one. it's fine to be proud of it. but please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around, and please don't try to shove it down my children's throats"

    now you see why? haha! hop over for a visit and give her some ! :D
wishing you lovelies a great week ahead! xo

Baby pearls are so cute but so sad to me at the same time. Ha!

My boyfriend had a double down in Arkansas and he said he reached a whole new level of fat. I agreed.

I had a nifty pic of it on my trip post. It was much smaller than I thought it would be.
