Merry Christmas 2012!

Hi everyone!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I hope you are having great time with your family, your loved one so far. Let me start up this blog entry with my very own iPhone-made postcard to you:

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year ahead. Wishes come true, lot of luck, love and happiness. Oh yes, I just had my hair cut few days ago. What do you think? :D

 What did you do to celebrate this year Christmas? I saw many friends of mine shared photo of their family gathering, dinner, party on facebook and they looked so happy. Wish everyday could be Christmas.

I had a simple but sweet Christmas celebration with Mike. We spent half day relaxing at home, walking around the shopping mall to buy some stuffs. At night, we went for a dinner date at Four Season Hotel.

Day time, I was wearing simple sparkle Guess black blouse with ZARA floral lace shorts to go shopping with Mike.

At night, I changed to a bodycon convertible dress and pointy-toe pumps for dinner. 

 Arrived at One-Ninety restaurant in Four Seasons Hotel. We didn't have to wait too long for our foods as the service was pretty fast and good. Lovely ambiance with full of Christmas decoration and even an acapella performance made our dinner more flavorful.

 The plum-alike candle looked so real. I couldn't stop looking at it. 

 Christmas dinner with Lobster, Foie Gras, Turkey etc....The menu sounded so good already.

 Had my Lychee martini for the start. I'm telling you THIS is probably the best Lychee martini I've ever tried so far. You have to try it when you are there.

My dinner. Yes, I ate all of them except for the Christmas cookies, I don't really like cookies, cake, candy and sweet stuffs. We both ate so much foods that we could hardly hide our round stomach when leaving the restaurant, lolz. 

That's perhaps the most memorable thing I did on Christmas and Santa was good to me. He gave me lot of presents this year too :D

1. Swarovski watch with necklace and bracelet set which are unavailable in Singapore. So mine is the one and only Swarovski set in Singapore. Love it! Thank you Santa! I love you very much! 

2. iPad Mini with my name engraved on it. Supposedly my website address would be engraved too but Santa forgot, lolz...Never mind, it's the thought that counts. 

3. Lot of Christmas cards, gifts, presents on my desk this year too. I read all the hand-writing messages again and again so many time. I felt so much love from so many people. Thank you my dearest Santas. 

4. iPad Mini casing. Because I love Pink! So Santa knew it. :D 

Mike also received some Christmas gifts from a "home-made" Santa, lolz. Bought for him a beautiful cuff link, watches case *he has been eyeing on this for year* , cologne and body wash. 

Now, after full dinner, the happy man is lying on the couch watching movie and playing his favorite games while I'm trying to finish this blog entry. :p

What did you do to celebrate your Christmas? What did Santa give you? Share with me in the comment section below coz I would love to know. Share the love and holiday spirit around. 

Again, wish you merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Be happy always!
Talk to you soon!




I was so busy that I almost forgot to blog about this. The most important day in a year to me: MY BIRTHDAY, which was more than a month ago.

Last year, I had the most memorable and meaningful birthday celebration ever as my parents were able to celebrate with me. After ten years of living far away from my family, this simplest thing is sometimes the most precious thing to me, and somehow I forgot about it. For that, I have to thank to my boyfriend for his sweetest idea, suggestion.

This year, I wanted to fly my parents to Singapore to celebrate with me, booked a yacht to party with my group of close friends and my parents. In the end, nothing happened as I was so uncertain whether I would want to do anything on my birthday. I was in the roller-coaster mood, happy & unhappy kind of mode. And I let it passed as if it was like many other normal days.

But when I didn't do anything to celebrate my birthday, people DID IT for me. And that's when you know you are loved, cared by many people around you. I felt extremely happy and blessed!

Thank you so much everyone whom I'm going to call you by name here. You guys are amazing, and I'm so thankful for your Love, Care, and Support. I really am!

Thank you for the countless Facebook messages, emails, Twitter messages on all the social network sites from my friends and fans. They are almost up to thousand of them, and It took me days to reply each and every one of you. I love reading those messages; they make my day!

Thank to people who bought me lunches, dinners even before and after my birthday. It wasn't my expectation, but that's really sweet of you! :)

Now, let's me take you to my birthday celebrations arranged by these amazing people:

Friday 2nd November, three days before my actual birthday, my friends took me to one of the beautiful Chinese restaurants at Harbourfront for a group dinner. There were so many foods on the table: prawn, fish, shark fin, pork, beef, chicken that we didn't know what to eat. I ate so much that I even had difficulty in standing up straight afterward.

We ate, we talked, we laughed, we took photos. It felt so warm and blissful.

Kris, Hong and Me. 

Camile and Kris with their prawn competition "Whose is bigger?" :D. Looks like Camille's prawn won.

A group photo of us! Standing row from left: Carmen, Hong, me & Kris. 
Sitting row: Alicia, Xiang Yin, Sara, Camile, Nicole. 

Thank you guys so much for the love, presents and laughter. I love you guys very much! 

Also, very coincidentally, my advertiser/ sponsor gave me this sweet gift exactly on my birthday. A COACH bag sponsored by Warmth Luxury Collection.

Another surprised gift from FANCL came to office in the morning with a personal message from BrandStory. Thank you so much! I love FANCL products very much now not because of all these stuffs because their products are really good for my skin. My skin is combination skin type in case you are wondering. I'll blog about it later when I have more time, I promise!

And then, the most important and awaited message of all: From my dearest Mike!

OK! You know our secret: I'm Cupcake, He is Pumpkin. That's how we called each other at home. :)
Came together with the postcard was this HUGE soft bear as big as half of my height.

                                                            and rose bouquet. Thank you, honey!

Flood of gifts, flowers, birthday card on my working desk. 

Photo taking time with everyone....

With Eddie Chua- my silent Blog reader, Twitter follower, fan, and friends.

With Carmen- my crazy fan and PA.

With Hong, love him! He is the best manager I've had. 

with Lily, soon to be my office roommate. 

With Yong, my big boss and my great supporter too. 

with Jacqueline, my shopping buddy. Thank God we have a different style, else we might have to fight when it comes to shopping.

With my cute little girl Nicole. 

With Camille whose age and horoscope are same with mine. :D 

and myself with my favorite birthday cake bought by my dear friends  

Hopefully, wishes will come true next year :)

With Carmen! She bought me a rose bouquet too, and she was trying to hide it at her back because she was so afraid that I would be able to see what it was. 

Alicia, Nicole & me. Loving these girls very much!

Finished cake cutting and group celebration, I went to have another little private candlelight dinner with Mr. Special.
He arranged all these! Booked a private dining room at Absinthe, our favorite French restaurant. 

We both had very yummy Wagyu steak for dinner.

and I had special Happy birthday fruit platter for dessert. 

In case, you are wondering who is the man behind all these sweetness. Here he is! My dearest Mike! Some of you have been Googling "Crystal's boyfriend" on Google, *I knew it ;) * now you know. :D

We have been dating for almost two years and have been going through so many obstacles, challenges *more than I expected*, but our relationship is still going strong and overcomes all the difficulties. I'm so glad and thankful to have him by my side. Thank you, baby!

Lastly, No birthday is complete without....

Birthday presents!!!! 

When it comes to present, I feel like I'm a small kid no matter how old I will be. I love receiving gifts regardless big or small, cheap or expensive. Sometimes, just a personal postcard can also make me happy. Like many other years, I never expected any present from anyone. Even when Mike asked me "What do you want for your birthday?", I had no idea what I want, and I kept giving him a vague answer "Anything. I don't know". But I think he did a good job in the end because I loved everything he got for me. 

A teddy bear. 

A rose bouquet sent to the office. 

And a beautiful Swarovski watch. I love Swarovski watches. 

A jewelry holder from Swarovski too :D

And here are some birthday presents from my friends. 

Sweet, personal and lovely! Thank you to all of you. 

A cup cap in pink from Nicole. Very practical and sweet especial when it's in pink, I double love it. 

I'm a Miss Popular. 

GUESS necklace brought from New York by Amber. 

Earrings from Accessorize. Looks like my friends know my style well! 

Body care set picked by Alicia. 

Special wristband with my name engraved on it from Camille. I love it! 

Sara's present to me and her personal message. 

And lastly, another beautiful closeup shot of my Swarovski watch. How beautiful!

Thank you very much to everyone who loves and cares about me. I'm very grateful to all the amazing people in my life. We come from many different parts of the world, walk from all different parts of life but somehow at some points, I'm lucky to meet all of you, and we become friends, brothers, sister.

Not forget to mention my wonderful fans, blog readers, followers or even my haters. You guys are my true motivation every day. Your love and support make me work harder, and your hate will only make me stronger and stronger every day. So either way, I still love you and thank you. And I hope you will still read this blog when I blog about my sexiest 30th birthday party ;)

Til then, I'll talk to you again soon.
