Or at least, I'd try to keep it short.
I'm upset about how picky I am and untrusting towards people when it comes to catsitting Noname. I know I don't have much choice to begin with and yet, I'm being so critical... (I wanna shoot myself). I've considered pets hotel and there's one that Eugene is helping me to look into but Imma have to spend money on that. If I've known earlier that my granny would be away, I'd have saved more in preparation for this.
Now I feel absolutely vulnerable that I'm in need of someone (reliable) from Dec 4-9 and when my granny returns from Malaysia, she can then take over. Yes, I do have friends who volunteered but I'm just so............... urghhhh choosy. I've been saying no to them and I feel so bad for doing so; it drives me nuts. I can't allow myself to say 'yes' if I realized there are things at home are just not ideal for Noname:
1. They have family member(s) who dislike or afraid of cats
2. They can only feed Noname, and won't be home in the day (cause of school/work)
3. They refer me to another friend whom I don't know
4. They already have older cat(s) at home which.... miiiiiiiiiight end up bullying Noname
I hate troubling people. And I don't want any of my friends to get into dispute with their parents, just cause of the mess/trouble Noname might bring(?). We don't know how he'd react in a new environment, do we? So I rather be visionary and consider ALL aspects instead to regret and be sorry later? Yeap. So God, please send me someone I can say 'yes' to already.
Conclusion: from this, I can totally imagine myself being one of those protective parents I hate so much, who's gonna pamper their children to death in future #ermaigawd

1. FLYING OFF TO NEW ZEALAND IN 8 DAYS TIME
Yes. In 8 days time. I'm still in the midst of packing. I've no idea what to pack or how to layer the clothes since I've never stepped out of Asia nor have I been trained how to dress fashionably for such places. I've absolutely zero tolerance for cold, so I foresee myself looking like an Eskimo in every picture heh.
What I really wish to achieve in New Zealand is.... S K Y D I V I N G
It's on my bucket list for the longest time and I wish I can fulfil it this year #soexcited #ermaigawd
2. WHO'S GONNA TAKE CARE NONAME?
I feel like an absolute bad parent. Granny made a last minute decision to go back Malaysia for holiday when we're away. So.... WHO'S GONNA FEED AND LOVE NONAME?! I am super in need of someone from Dec 5-9..... 4 days and then my granny will be back and she can take over. It stresses me out that I can't seem to find the right person for this huge responsibility and I.... hate troubling others.
3. QI XUE SERVICE
A HUGE HUGE HUGE THANK YOU TO THE ANONYMOUS who introduced me to Qi Xue Service at Golden Mile Tower for my granny's knee problem. Yesterday was the first appointment. I really really hope granny will get better soon and I actually kinda like the sinseh and service there. The only thing that got on my nerve was the receptionist? She's pretty rude when it comes to handling calls. I was lost. I called and asked for direction and she was being a total........... yeap. /fingers-crossed/ Granny, be alright soon.
4. HER JET SET
Newly launched on 25th November. This baby features a range of apparels from simply classy to playful and fun. It doesn't matter if you're working or studying, cause they'll suit you just fine!!! Go check them out today and buy some goodies to be one of the first few honourable ones to be decked in Herjetset's items hehe!!!
/this entry's been sitting on my Drafts for waaaayyyy too long. I must complete tonight/
WHY THE SUDDEN DECISION TO CELEBRATE BIRTHDAY THIS YEAR?
It's just a really sudden urge to check it off my bucket list: to throw a birthday party at least once in my life. As cliche as this is gonna sound, life is short and we don't know what might happen tomorrow. I've never thrown a party before, not even when I was younger and I don't want to die knowing that I've never gathered my friends together for a nice celebration of any kind and the closest thing I can have to that is a funeral. I know it's a little morbid, but at least that's translated into something good yeah?
For all the objectives above, I had mini activities lined up for the guests.
First up, the Irina's Party To Do List
That paper in the cup was the to-do-list. It 's a list of tasks which my friends were meant to complete during the party to receive Irina points. Mainly, they had to go around mingling in the party to meet people in my life: my primary school friends, my secondary school friends, my poly friends, my modeling friends, my best friends, my family members :-)
I loved watching them accomplishing this task. They were all like, "Ohhhhhh so you're that dude Irina was talking about" or "Oh! So you are THE best friend" or "I've heard so much about you from Irina!!!" or "I've been wanting to meet you!" It's beyond amazing for me to just watch my friends who haven't met each other connect cause I've always believed, birds of the same feathers flock together. If I love them, chances are my other friends will too.
Thanks to this to-do list, my friends from poly would now know who are my primary school friends and vice versa. Everyone knows everyone now and Irina will feel much easier when she mentions names in future cause she doesn't have to show Facebook or Instagram profile as reference anymore hahahaha.
The reason why they were actually soooooo motivated to complete the Irina's Party To-do List was for the redemption list the Fun Officers (Hoho & Shamo aka my bestfriends) came up with. The redemption list was a list of dares for me. My friends would have to exchange dares with Irina points. Hence, they had to work hard to collect it hahahaha. And it was obviously no problem for them, everyone was sooooo competitive maaaaigawd.
And how Irina points and redemption list came about..... I've this habit of giving out Irina points but they were never redeemable till this party...
My Fun Officers hahahaha
After which, they'd have to follow the instruction from the Fun Officers to write a message, tie it to the balloon and let it flyyyyyyyy. Hanif got me helium tank for my birthday (since I'm so obsessed with it after Daniel's party). So that's how we got all our balloons floating hehe. Thanks, Nif!
So so beautiful :')
Next, my best friends came up with the #bestcornerinthevilla for me: THE SNACK CORNER
It looked absolutely amazing, really. It's so pretty my other friends were afraid to help themselves to the goodies hahaha. The theme was cute and the snack corner totally added like gazillion cute points to my party hehehehehe.
The entire setup was so super pretty. Anything who needs a party planner should hire my Fun Officers, they'd deliver the best execution to your ideas. The details and everything, brilliant.
If you've watched my Birthday Video Part 1, you'd have seen us setting up the photowall area with streamersssssss!!!! It's simple but they really did POP in the pictures, looking oh-so-fantastic :')
And so before the first few guests reached the villa, I was sorta confined in the room upstairs like a bride. The Fun Officers wanted to surprise me with the preparation. Hence, yeaaaaap... they're cute huh.
And when the guests arrived, we took lots and lots of pictures hehehehe
It's lovely how the polaroids filled up the wall so so quickly with all these lovely faces hehe.
Yeap we had played a few rounds of games! One of which was to guess the adjective which best described the first impression we'd given to the person next to us in the game. The adjective Steph gave me was..... EXPRESSIVE.... hahahahaha. And I totally wouldn't have guessed it in a million years.
Dave is such a sweetheart. Despite having a flight to catch on that day, he still came to see me before rushing off to the airport. Thanks Dave :')
Eugene didn't have any polaroids with me cause he was too busy helping me out with all the balloons and stuff :'( Thanks, boo.
It's definitely not one of my best videos. I had troubles with the flow and coherency. No idea how I should go about making it seem appealing, I don't think I have time for that either. Ultimately these videos are for me, something for me to remember by, so it doesn't really matter right? hehe.
Thank you once again to my sweethearts for making this possible for my 22nd. My party objectives wouldn't be achievable without y'all. I swear y'all did a better job than those... (if I were to hire one) official party planners.
/SORRY FOR THE ABRUPT ENDING/
OK FINALLY GOT THIS ENTRY OFF MY BACK!!!! NOW I CAN FOCUS ON ALL THE STUFF IM SUPPOSED TO BE DOING. OMG TODAY'S THE 29TH?! SHIT.... WHICH MEANS THANKSGIVING'S ALREADY OVER AND I'M SO BEHIND MY SCHEDULE!!! STRESS STRESS STRESS.
