POWER OVER CERVICAL CANCER


I'm gonna attend the biggest pink party ever in Singapore on this 24 July in Zouk organized by Power Over Cervical Cancer and I'm pretty excited and looking forward to it!


Reason for attending? Well, I must confess that the only reason attracts me at first to attend this party is the pink theme. Everyone knows me in real or from my blog know i love pink. Seriously! How good to be surrounded with all the pink stuffs! Am thrilled! ^_^

The party will start from 8.30pm to 10.30pm with so many happening things: fashion show, Magic Show, Pole-dancing performances, freebies, etc...Omg! *Faint*

So, any girl who is free on this Saturday MUST join this party!


Photobucket


There are only limited tickets up for grab so be hurry to secure your entry :) I wish to see all you girls there in pink and we'll do a massive pink camwhore session, lolz....

Those girls/ aunties/ wives/ mommies who are busy with other things on that date, who don't really like pink that much, who don't even care or have time to care much about your own body, you MUST attend this event too!

There is another reason which makes me feel more eager to attend this party is not only because of the pink stuffs but also a lesson about the thing called "Cervical Cancer"

"What the hell is that?" I talked to myself when i first glanced at the party flyer. And then, i had little time to read through the website about cervical cancer. I was stunned!

It's like almost 200 new cases diagnosed every year in Singapore. So means, you or I can get infected Cervical Cancer anytime, anywhere regardless of age, blood type, lifestyle, genre or anything. Cervical Cancer can happen to anyone and it can kill!!!!!! Good God, so what the hell is Cervical Cancer?

Here you go!

* What is Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer is a disease that affects the cervix in the female reproductive system. The cervix is about 2 inches length is the lower portion of the uterus that connects the upper vagina to the uterus. During childbirth, the cervix dilates, allowing the baby to travel from the uterus to the vagina.


Cervical cancer begins in cells on the surface of the cervix. Over time, the cervical cancer can invade more deeply into the cervix and nearby tissues. The cancer cells can spread by breaking away from the original (primary) tumor. They enter blood vessels or lymph vessels, which branch into all the tissues of the body. The cancer cells may attach to other tissues and grow to form new tumors that may damage those tissues. The spread of cancer is called metastasis.

Cut it short, see the photo:


and here how the cervical cancer looks at different stages.


 Mad gross!


Ever wonder why we women have this kind of cancer while men don't? Because men dont have vagina, as simple as that. But look, here are some serious factors and causes of cervical cancer that you to seriously think about:


1. HPV (Human Papillomavirus) a group of viruses that can infect the cervix. These viruses are passed from person to person through sexual contact. Most adults have been infected with HPV at some time in their lives. So tell me if you would never have sex in your life? Not possible!


2. Lack of regular Pap tests: Cervical cancer is more common among women who don't have regular Pap tests. The Pap test helps doctors find abnormal cells.


3. Smoking: Among women who are infected with HPV, smoking cigarettes slightly increases the risk of cervical cancer.


4. Weakened immune system (the body's natural defense system): Infection with HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) or taking drugs that suppress the immune system increases the risk of cervical cancer.


5. Sexual history. Women who have had many sexual partners OR a woman who has had sex with a man who has had many sexual partners may be at higher risk of developing cervical cancer. So what you need to do? Say "Condom"! :D


6. Using birth control pills for a long time: Using birth control pills for a long time (5 or more years) may slightly increase the risk of cervical cancer among women with HPV infection. However, the risk decreases quickly when women stop using birth control pills.


7. Having many children: Studies suggest that giving birth to many children (5 or more) may slightly increase the risk of cervical cancer among women with HPV infection.


So many factors -_- So how a person knows whether she is infected by Cervical Cancer? Simple!


There are few early stage symptoms of Cervical Cancer for you to discover:
* abnormal vaginal bleeding, including post-coital bleeding
* pain during sexual intercourse, however this can be common and unrelated to cervical cancer
* pelvic pain
* heavy vaginal discharge

I you ever have such symptoms, do consult the doctor near you for advice. For now, i think the best way is to visit Power Over Cervical Cancer to find out more infos. You can either read the information in the website or give them a call for any advice.

Natural make-up tip!


Tutorial!

MAKE UP TUTORIAL!!!!!!

Since I haven't updated any tutorial post at all yet plus many girls were asking me about how to do a natural make up for a normal day out! Well, I'm not a professional  make-up artist but somehow my make up skill has been passed the professional make up artist's judge so I think, I'm good enough to share with you girls how to do a good make up! *ehem* Yeah! Else, if you think i'm not qualified, consider you are reading a crappy blog entry :D

I am personally a BIG fan of natural make- up. To me, make-up is the tool to make a women become more beautiful in front of the men, not to scare the men off. The good make-up should hide all the unwanted "mistakes" on your face. Hence, the more natural it is, the better you look! I only wear a heavy make up (with dark eye-shadow) if I have to attend some events, parties, clubbing etc....Or you can only see me on "scary" make up when I'm about to start my dance performances. Other than that, Natural- Natural- Natural! 

You must look beautiful as naturally as if there is no make up at all on your face ;) So here is my tips for you girls!

I skip the washing/ cleaning/ moisturizing steps because it is a MUST before you put any make up on! Choose your own brand that suits your skin. I'm using The Face Shop fyi

So I shall start with the first step:

1. Applying foundation



Squeeze small amount of your favorite and most suitable foundation brand to your palm or hand (as i did), do not apply directly to your face. This is what a professional make-up artist used to do. 


Use the sponge to apply the foundation evenly all over the face. I'm using Chanel foundation because i found it super damn long-lasting and suitable for my skin. 

2. Face powder.


Better choose the same brand with your foundation for the best result. You can either use brush to apply the powder on your face or use the sponge too. 

3. Eye-liner



Put on a very fine eye-liner on your upper eyelid to make your eyes look bigger :D and it looks more natural if you want to put on the fake eye-lashes later. I'm using the Gel eye-liner from Maybeline. 

4. Curl eyelashes


I hate my stupid short-straight eyelashes! It looks so ugly, overtime I need to curl them up before putting up the fake eyelash or else i will look like a monster with 4 eyelashes, 2 are straight and 2 are long and curly. 

5. Mascara

As usual, you want your eyelashes look thicker and keep the form after curling them, you need a good mascara.

Looking up while you doing it!

6. Fake eyelashes

My most favorite thing i want to do and my level is up to 30 seconds to complete putting up the fake eyelashes for both eyes. Is it pro yet?



Make sure you use the black glue so that it wont look so obvious the white line on your eyelids and in other way, the black glue can acts as your eye liner too!

7. Blushering time!

Little bit pinky to make your face look healthy. I dont like a girl with a super dark eye-shadow, no lipstick and no blusher at all. They look so damn pale and Ghost-alike, Godness! Why didn't they know that? So remember putting on the blusher before you go out!



8. Lipstick


Am  using natural rose pink! Mad love with this color :) Remember to put on some lip balm before you put on the lipstick. 

9. Lip gloss

This is not compulsory unless you are going out at night and you want people to look at your shiny lips, make it look sexier, thicker. Else, in day time if you  have to go out, under the sun, it's not advisable. I dont wear lip gloss in day time because i dont want my lips become dust-magnet 



My favorite lip gloss of all time: Dior! So lovely the pink. 


Make it more artistic while putting on the lip gloss, hehehee.....

So that are all 9 steps together i've been  using everyday! Simple and easy to do! it will take you not more than 30 minutes to look beautiful. So dont be lazy, women! I used to go to work without make up at all because i was super lazy woman before. I love sleeping on bed even just for extra 5 minutes. But then when you go out everyday, meet many people, you'll realize that how important the beautiful look will bring the confidence in you. So do it as I say! You will see the result

PROFESSIONAL SHOWDANCE CHAMPION.


Some of you who have been following me on Twitter, Facebook, most probably know what's happened at last weekend. The biggest achievement I've had in my 9 years dancing career. No Joke! I and my dance partner won.
PROFESSIONAL SHOW-DANCE CHAMPION!!!!

in 11th Stardust Dancesport Championship on 27th June. Presenting to you the big and beautiful trophy.



Happy, excited, crazy...Of course! But above all, I must say it's a SATISFACTION! It's a reward of so many nights (almost 5 days/ week) of practice for 2 to 3 hours each day.

It's a REWARD for all the blisters on my feet, the bruises on my legs, the pain on the body till the next day I couldn't walk properly.

The big COMPLIMENT for the patience that I spent every night on making the dance costume on my own for that competition.

I think among the hundred competitors, I might be the only one who self-made dance costume. Most of the costumes are made by professionals which cost more than a thousand dollars each.

From this normal teddy or monokini whatever you call it, I cut it off into a few pieces.


  The original one wasn't like it :D

adding some shiny fringes i bought in Malaysia time ago......


Every night, I spent at least 2 hours after my dance practice to make this. The final result is this

No one helped me to take the photos :( so I came out with the idea of #selfie i front of the mirror. The photos aren't that bad, are they?

My dress turned out to be quite...sexy! :D


My competition was on Sunday and only Sunday morning, I completed the whole dress with the hand-made accessories come together i.e bangles, earrings (in exact same color) and

Nails

Bling bling bling! ^_^

Close up!

Ok, I know those manicurists can curse me or hate me more now because I did my nails myself too. Sorry for taking up your business, it's just I didn't have time for you. Anyway, it isn't perfect if I don't want to say it's lousy nail arts, but I did it on my own, hello! What you expect?

I have not mentioned about my shoes yet :p
Here they are!!!!



 So brand new look plus the shiny crystal * I lost count of how many crystal i've used* I super love it 

Now you all know why I was named Crystal.
Before ending this blog entry, here are some of Dancing in Action photos that you might be interested in looking!



My super strong dance partner!
Sorry, there weren't many photos captured because everyone was busy watching. I had great friends came to support me that night, feel so happy to dance for them too.

And here is the video!




So, you like it? :D :D :D :D :D
