ESCAPE NOW

No, this is not a zombies-coming-to-attack-us-run-for-your-lives post. This is a lifestyle-changing post. You see, I am a couch potato. Forget going to the theatres. The impossible parking, the ridiculous lines, the stupid red sold out sign, the soaring prices - it used to be way less than RM10 on a weekend ok! -  and the annoying parking lot traffic just to leave the mall, especially for late night movies.

Television is my ultimate guilty pleasure. On my off days, I'd literally lay on the couch in my pyjamas ALL DAY just going through the television catching up my favourite series, reality show marathons, infotainment clips, movie reruns and if I'm feeling a little adventurous, pay a little extra to catch a blockbuster movie on the tele. Nothing feels more luxurious than doing what you love at your own free time. Ah the delightful conveniences of modern technology. At least, that's what I thought until I was introduced to the ESCAPE.


Now imagine all these and SO MUCH MORE.



An endless movie library. 
In your palms, in your pocket. 
No matter where you are. 

All accessible with just a laptop, a tablet or even a simple smartphone that everyone can afford to have these days. iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows, ESCAPE does not discriminate because high-resolution images are delivered for top notch video quality irregardless of devices. Speaking of affordable, only from 80 cents an hour for more than 500 movies/series/news/concerts/dramas/anything that you'd ever want to watch. That's less than RM2 to catch a movie. How insane! 

Who needs to leave their beds now just to catch a television show when you've got ESCAPE as your personal entertainment space that follows you anytime, anywhere. My OWN personal world of entertainment that I get to ESCAPE into to catch all the irresistable moments, unmissable events. Now the word everyone absolutely loves more than anything else - free! Download the app for free on your mobile and never miss anything ever again because there's that awesome pause/play button that let's you go get up to make a quick yummy breakfast and come back to bed for more incredible entertainment. I AM SOLD! The world needs to know about this and I am telling you, world, what are you waiting for! Time to take that one small step for you, one mega huge step into a world of endless genre collections!


Now excuse me while I enjoy some good old Scrubs. 
I can't believe ESCAPE stocks this classic here!

Role Reversal

Was lounging on the couch yesterday afternoon when mom asked,


"what are you having for dinner?"

"I don't know, what are YOU cooking?"

"Not cooking. Your dad and I are going to the pool tonight, neighbour's son birthday party"

"WAIT WHO WHAT WHY HUH?"

"You kautim your own dinner ok your brother also not coming back"

"Wait, how come I'm not invited?"

"It's a double invite only. You also don't know them"

"Sigh ok"

Then they went out in the evening.

Past midnight, I was still home alone. Still lounging on the couch wtf.

At least my brother was already home.

"Bratster, where are your parents?"

"Stoopid, I don't know I just got home. Where are YOUR parents?"

"How I know, YOU tell me la"

*calls mom's cellphone *hears phone rings in her room

*calls dad's cellphone *hears phone rings in his room

Ok apparently nobody brought their phones out, just great. 

Past 1am, I was borderline worried.

These people rarely go out at night much less stay out till late.

*put on thug sweater and goes out to see what's going on

As I head towards the pool I hear chatter and laughter.

Climbed up the stairs to see my mom going all:

Sitting with a bunch of other old people around a table stacked with cans of beer.

"Er what are you guys doing, don't want come home ah?"

"Aiyah still so early. You go home first lah we come back later"

Mom's friend: "Wah your daughter ah? Come, come join us"

"Haha s'okay lah auntie I'm watching tv at home"

Mom's friend: "...."

"Ok don't come back so late bye"

Conclusion : My parents have more of a social life than I do.

Tsukiji Fail + The Emperor's Crib


Woke up the next day to a beautiful morning. 

Which isn't right because we're supposed to be up before the sun rises!

Tsukiji Market Authentic Experience failed. Boo sleepyheads. (∪。∪)zzz  

Head over there anyways. Hungrehs. 

Rules and regulations.


Don't know where to find good food. Barely any queues. 

See menu see price. Chose random store. NO REGRETS.

Best meal in my life. Fuck yeah sea urchin!


I'd happily pay RM60-80 for this bowl of gastronomical heaven again.

Tummy too full. Nothing much to see at the Tsukiji Market. 

It was already past noon, you see.  Let's have a change of environment.


Ginza Street! #feelingatas


 The iconic Ginza Hattori Building.


The also iconic [XXI at GINZA by FOREVER21] hahahaha


UNIQLO. TWELVE FLOORS. GOT LIFT. SALE. #WAITWHAT


I remembered watching the news of its opening earling in March. 

PingWey and I wanted to go so bad but there simply wasn't time. This is for you PingWey. 

Hahahaha. Yeah, totally shopped there. Summer colours so awesome. 

Time to chill out a bit after having the walk of our life to get to Imperial Palace

Tulah nak saving saving tiket keretapi lagi. Sesat sokmo jalan sampai kaki patah. 


Tokyo can be so magical at times. Busy and bustling on one side. 

Take a few steps more, suddenly it's all quiet and serene. Love it. 

\\

Lazed around the Imperial Palace Park. 

Watched a group of moms on a picnic with their cute little kids. 

Lay on the green grass for a quick nap. Ahh good life good life. 


ICE CREAM WHEE (❁´◡`❁)*✲゚*

I got one all for myself. It was so fucking good. 

Calory count 972358351 but who cares. Summer, this is all your fault.


Kusunoki Masashige.

Googled "Tokyo Imperial Palace Samurai Statue" hahaha 


Meganebashi. Stone bridge connecting to the inner palace. 


Tutup kedai. Only open on 2nd Jan and 23rd Dec apparently. 


More bridges? Half the time I didn't know what I was looking at.

But hey, beauty is beauty there's no escaping that. 


Pop of colours. Fresh flowers are the best! 


Kokyo Gaien. I love the below pictures.

Perfect balance of nature and the modern world. 

An oasis of lush greens amongst the ambitious skyscrapers.




What a tiring (from all the walking) yet relaxing (just going at our own pace)

 but beautiful day of exploring central Tokyo. Japan how can you kidnap my heart like this.

Bloody Mary

Have always loved the colour red. Got a few red lippies in the past but well, always thought I looked kind of drag with red red red lips fml so chucked them in the bin after giving them one too many chances that didn't quite work out. "Ah fuck my life there's no hope", I thought but got stubborn and bought another super red lippie not too long ago lol CANNOT RESIST LEH. Suprisingly, it didn't look that bad when I gave it a shot recently! Either I've aged considerably to suit the look or err what other explanation is there?


Using NYX Matte Lipstick in Bloody Mary.


Those dark circles are no joke. You can imagine how bad it is if it's this apparent even after LAYERS of coverage. On another note, went for a round of hair makeover session at 76Style/Number76 after months and months of neglect. There's simply no time to make an appointment in advance! Or when there actually is time there's no money wtf what else is new right. Anyways I decided to go down a few shades darker for a more natural look and Hama-san suggested to leave a few strands untouched for a subtle highlight effect. Also got a complimentary ultrasonic treatment (birthday month!) and I opted for the tansan scalp treament as well just because. Got my overgrown fringe trimmed as well, ahhh relieved. 

Honestly I've tried the tansan a long before but while it was certainly refreshing, didn't thought much of it after because there were no significant effect. Thinking back, that must have been a momentary lapse in judgement because this time, I FRIGGIN' LOVED IT °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°  First of all it feels absolutely great especially on a hot day hahaha but after that, even until today (a week after) I can feel the difference. Okay my hair has always been fine and limp since that fateful teenage days where I bleached my entire head and dyed it silver grey. It has never been the same since then but no regrets. What I do now to counter this problem is to pull my hair up into a bun in the morning (no washing) and let it go when I reach my destination so it gets fluffed up. Most of the time though it all ends up limp, flat and stringy by the afternoon and it makes me feel shitty because I can't wait to get it showered. Crazy huh, for hair to affect a person's mood but it really does that! #shallow 

The past week has been great though (in terms of hair condition, not so great in other things wtf) because my hair stays moderately volumnious until the end of the day if not longer. The picture above was taken at 1AM after a long day of work, meetings, dinner, coffee and more than an hour stuck in traffic because of contruction works at the Cheras-Kajang highway fml IT WAS PAST MIDNIGHT JAM WHAT JAM. Behold, hair still fabulous. Also it's been much easier washing my hair. Usually when I gather my hair to one side and squeeze it dry before putting on conditioner, it literally clumps in tangles and I'd have to work through them with the conditioner. It's all smooth now though so cut down on time spent in shower. Was it the tansan scalp treament? Was it the ultrasonic treatment? I don't know which did the job but I'm loving it!

Mind, this bimbotic post is not a paid review lol imma start this Shit That Works tag because been reading too many beauty/skincare/others reviews online that are so painfully biased (makes you wonder, but not really) and ridiculously positive in every review I don't know who to trust anymore. At least word it more neutral please you can't ask people to buy when you've only tried it for that one time. That said, yours truly is a total sucker for all the clever words you see on packagings lol brilliant copywriting wins my money. More reasons to be push myself to do proper research beforehand. Honest reviews are important okay I need to make sure what little money I have in hand are well spent on shit that actually works
