Crystal's Closet: Weekly Wardrobe (Ep 29, 30)

To continue with Episode 28

So, I came back Singapore on 16th October and it has been more than a month but there wasn't anymore update from Tiger Airways so far about my lost luggage except for once they told me that "Tiger Airways will continue search for lost luggage for period of 21 days from the date of reporting, after which time the bag will be deemed lost"

How disappointed it felt! What exactly happened was: I went to check-in counter and placed my luggage onto the scale as usual. After 5 minutes, I received my boarding pass inserted inside my passport handed over by the counter staff. She told me what is my seat number, boarding gate and etc...Done! I walked over the boarding gate happily with hands- free except for 1 handbag with me. 

After 3 hours, I landed in Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi, waited for another hour, didn't see my luggage at all and everyone was in the same flight with me has left. I asked the Noi Bai airport staff if there's any luggage left, she said "No" and asked for my luggage tag. I searched all over my handbag, pocket, wallet, passport anywhere I could. No luggage tag and I realized the Tiger Airway staff counter did not check in my luggage. I was freaked out, angry, worried and super disappointed. OK! I admit, it was my fault for not checking all the necessary documents before I left. I assumed and relied on the airport staff that this should be checked and confirmed by them at their proficiency before handing documents to passengers. That's the most standard practice

Isn't it part of their checking-in procedures to ask passengers if they have any check-in luggage? But on that day? No! The Tiger Airways lady did not ask me anything and assumed that I had nothing to check in too. If she didn't assume, then she needs to go back to training. Secondly, my luggage was placed on the scale and shown at 11kg for God's sake, how could she not notice about it? As much as I am blaming myself for my ignorance, but your job is to assist passengers in such cases happen too. How on earth a first-time passenger could know to ask: "Excuse me, can you give me the luggage tag?" 

I've searched and found out there are many passengers experienced lost luggage or even lost items inside their luggage with Tiger Airways. How is it even possible? Please do something about it Tiger Airways! Til you really show that you have improve your quality, security and standard, I'm sorry but you have lost my business. 

Did I lose anything valuable? Thank God, No! Only some new clothing for my nephew, my personal stuffs and that's all. I just bought all new things to replace those. But from this incident, I have learned and here are my advices to you when you travel:

1. Place the name tag on your luggage. Those information like your name, your email, handphone, address just in case you lose it. If I have put it, I might have found my luggage
2. Check carefully information on your boarding pass and if you check in luggage, don't forget to take the luggage tag. 

Sound too simple to remember? Trust me, the simplest ones are often forgotten! 

Enough with this depressing topic. When I came back, Mike bought me a new luggage for my birthday present and it came in pink which is even better. :D And I went to work on Wednesday with refreshing, happy face as if nothing happened. That's the way it should be. 

Back to digital world with outfit of the day: Red beaded accessories and white lace dress. I bought the jewelry on my Bintan trip and they cost me less than S$10 for two. Every girl loves bargain and so do I. I bought like 4, 5 sets lolz

At night after work, I started my dance practice with my partner again to prepare for the performance on Saturday. Yes! Practice on Wednesday, perform on Saturday. It sounds crazy but that's what we do all the time.

 Latin fever! 

Look! I don't need high heels to be tall :p

Leopard print, pencil skirt, high heels and pony tail on the go. There is no better color matches with leopard outfit than red, don't you think? Some people prefer pairing yellow with leopard but I personally love wearing red with leopard or red with beige color because i find it very sexy and powerful.

It's show time! I woke up early in the morning to get my make-up and hair ready for the afternoon performance. As this was just dance studio party so I decided to go for less-drama makeup unlike one in big dance competition. Here is look of the day.

Staying at home whole day to edit my video and to work on my blog. This is always one of my favorite things to do on the weekend. 

Unfortunately, weekend is always too short for me to finish up what I need to do and that also means a new week always comes way too quickly. Time to get back to work.

Blue Hi-Low chiffon dress on blue Monday but the color of the dress got nothing to do with my mood. I'm happy-go-lucky girl all the time. When wearing such outfit, don't forget to wear safety pants or short shorts underneath because you will never know when the wind is going to play with you.

At night, i went to have my nails done at Celine Nails Creations (currently my nails sponsor). Want to get your nails done? Call her at 9181 2799 and mention my name "CrystalPhuong" to get 10%OFF. 
 After nails, my PA Carmen asked me to go for hair cut because I was telling her I wanted to cut my bang a week ago. And I ended up at this salon she took me to.

After 15 minutes, this is the finished result. :D

Chilling day with faux fur and pencil skirt. Love this turquoise color! I even managed to buy a matching pair of pumps to go with it. Shopping power! :D

I hung out with my best girl friends for dinner and we headed to Clarke Quay for shisha afterward. It wasn't planned but it turned out to be so fun. It was close to Halloween night and people were all in costumes ready to celebrate. That added some fun to our people-watching while shisha-ing session. 

Me and my girls: Alicia, Camile and me (from left).

 I actually don't know how to smoke and I'm not a smoker but I can blow out smoke like an experienced one, :p.

Not to mention, blow in style please! *hmmm, does it sound wrong here?*

Brunch time with my favorite people: Camile & Hong. Love them! They are always there when I need. 

No blogging, no shopping. Time to relax, release and de-stress with sunbathing by the pool and a good book. Unfortunately, I used the book to cover my face after that because the sun was too hot, lolz. Lame!
