Yesterday I was someone. But I always thought that I am Suetha the Indian Classical Dancer. Then today I am Suhana. Day before I was Suet Mun. Welcome to my alter ego page..

Yours truly,
Suhana Suetha

GO Away Fine Lines

One of the major investment that I will be putting forward for 2013 is towards my face! =D
Looking decently good was never an easy task. It worries me when those random on not being able to be a decently hot girlfriend of a guy crosses my mind.

I didn't start and proper skincare regime when I was in my teens. Come on, poor people where got time to think about all this. I barely have enough time to spare on studying and working in between to make enough.

Soon to be 34 in July 2013, I am seriously hoping to salvage the very little substance of youth left in me.
I would be really happy if I can look like a 27 years old till I reach 40 =P

One of the thing that I have invested in is collagen drink.
I've had collagen powder to be made into drinks before but it taste awful!
I am giving these drinks a try, and it ain't cheap! But all for the sake of supple skin and younger looking complexion.

DHC Collagen Drink available @ Watson
Bought 2 boxes for RM199 during their promo period.

It really does work for me! Hair is instantly easier to manage somehow. And those beggars' knot that I have always got  since I don't comb my hair too were all loosen up! And I do notice a better glow on the complexion, with the redness on skin reduced ;)

This is actually hyaluronic acid in serum base, meaning more powerful! Going to review this soon in YourShoppingKaki, so not gonna talk about it now. At the time of writing, I have actually used up at least half of the substance. If you knew of the brand and have been searching on where to buy this, head on to Styles4U

Clarins Anti Aging Double Serum that claims to give super result in 4 weeks time!
By now it's more than 4 weeks already. Result wasn't super obvious, but it's pretty good in giving the suppleness back to the skin. I think the combination of collagen and the anti aging serum does work as now I actually uses less make up as the skin condition is way better than previous and there isn't blotchiness =D
Retailing at RM280 yo :/

2013 !!

circa 2011 / 2012

Won this set of Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Eraser Set from Cheeserland!! ;D

Such is life. There is no natural beauty one!... You gotta work hard to pay off to attain the slightest of beauty if you are not born with it :'(

Money Money Money, It's so Funny

Today I was introduced to this video during the Parenting Talk that Penny conducted in MoneyTree Sri Hartamas today.
To have one post about what financial literacy is, is absolute impossible. 
Well, not like I will be able to educate anyone on you out there on how crucial financial literacy is to everyone and how it impacts us in our daily life. 
But as I have been attending almost 5 session by now, willing or not, each time I leave with a determination to be financially smarter than the session before. 
Educating our mind to be financially savvy is not something easy especially at our age as we tend to acknowledge and forget. Acknowledging how crucial it is that we need to be smart in managing our cash, only to forget about the seriousness of the issue when we are lured with material happiness. We call this temptations, impulse, demons...

Attitude towards money 
Just exactly what does that mean?
As part of the online community that contributes quite a reasonable amount to shop online, I must say I need to review the attitude I have put forward to the money that I have. Or not have. It's so easy to spend. And sometimes it's just so easy and tempting that we often forget to ask ourself ' Do we need it? Or do we want it? Would you die if you don't have it? Would you lost your status as a fashion icon if you do not own that quilted bag inspired from Chanel? If you can't afford a RM3000 Chanel quilted bag, would spending RM120 on an inspired version be justifiable to ensure you hold the title of being fashionable? Can you still maintain your identity (in this case, fashion icon) IF you do not have that quilted bag - original or inspired. All this thoughts roaming wild in your mind and rummaging the credit cards in your wallet while sneering at your monthly salary of RM3000.
Just how do one decide? How do you expect a shopaholics and a fashionista to be able to come out with a calm logic when faced with such a situation?

I have stopped shopping for the past couple of weeks. Except for 2 grande cappucino from Starbucks and a 100 ringgit worth of granolas (alll for the health!). I would have shopped if the wages is visible to my bank account. 

This is a weird post... coming from someone like me..But yeah, I guess I am considering hard to take charge of my life. Finally. 2 credit card cancelled, resunscribing to the Employees Provident Fund (by force) and joining the work force in a proper work place (hopefully)..

Shuffling up to Puchong

Everyone need some Booty Swing.
Be it in shuffle mode, swing mode, or chicken mode ;)

The swing version

 Shuffle version

Chicken version lolol

 A freaking 6 minutes for this Chambermaid Swing! Don't know if I can attempt this ;/

Another attempt to try on!

On a random note, this fast beat Korean moves doesn't seem too dificult on the moves =D

I got the offer today after a second screening. I don't know how many have been screened though. It has been years since I first attended any job interview. It sounded like I am gonna embark on a pretty exciting work scope ahead. 
Have always wanted to seriously do marketing instead of dabbling into 1001 things in an office operation. I guess this will most probably be my first proper route to a proper job. In an industry not known to me. There is a mixed feeling. Of wanting to excel and there is this nervousness that I may have lost my tempo at doing sales pitching after so many years.
Somehow I have this small lil vision that I will make it thru. Well, I always have vision.. :/

I have exactly a month to leave nothing but a good trail behind. Exactly a month to transfer knowledge.
I still haven't figure a casual way of saying I am leaving..
Super sigh................

Year In Year Out

Today isn't the first day of a new year.
I was too lazy and did this half way, only to return to it now..

Today is the first day of another new calendar year.
This year, not too many new calendars collected.
Got a diary from the insurance agent as per every year. Perhaps I should really make use of it and document everything that needs to be done daily.
I have been lagging. For the past year.

The past year was a year I got totally clean from that horrid working place - Meesha Suckira that sucked my life out of this body. In return, I got rewarded. With a man who loves me like there is no other woman in the world anymore. Yeah, I got my life back. Being able to have some personal time doing things out of the work zone. For the first time also in my life, I think I have finally settled down to the idea that I wouldn't mind being loved by someone. And for the first time in my super ambitious mind to have lowered down to a mind set of not even wanting to pursue a career anymore. It is like... I have achieved the zen of normal human life like that!
please do not steal my man!

Today wasn't too great a day. Was hot. Had to wake up early to return this set of jewellery made of metal which was once GIFTED to me. I seriously thought when one say, "... this is my gift to you..." it means being offered to you at no hidden cost. Turn out the hidden cost was actually there! I should have listened to some friends who said it can't be true. I seriously thought that there are genuinely kind soul out there.
All this hoo-haa finally lead me to being able to filter out the different type of educator / teacher / master. A real educator have genuine followers who will be by his / her side because they may see the same vision and mission. A bad one just keep reminding you that the economy is not doing good and there is a need to increase practising fees. As there are bills to be paid for their own life.
I was once very genuine in my pursue. Until I have been constantly reminded by the one who impart knowledge that  they are more keen to have your money - not that I am not willing  to pay. But it doesn't compensate the experience gained. Now it makes sense why the group of followers were just never a pool big enough to impress..
So. bye bye to something that I have always wanted to do since the age of 13 - indian classical dance. Perhaps I will put a  foot in next time. But definitely wiser.
(this whole thing sounds like some scam story. It's not. Merely a phase of gotten into a wrong crowd.)

I can't wait to get back to doing yoga

As much as I do not favour my current working condition, it was also a year I had to take charge of something at work. Not like I have not been doing it all the while in other company. As easier said than it's done, managing an office is not easy. All the action to be taken requires much thoughts and consideration before implementation. I guess not going out for sales and marketing purposes was good. t has given me a time to straighten up my skills in office management. I would  like to say I have a great concept, but I have bad implementation. In other words, I know what to do, but I am lazy to do ;(
I think I am going to remind myself to sharpen on the  implementation part for this coming year.

My weekends are now filled with kids. Joining MoneyTree and entertaining kids aside, I have not much choice but to learn alongside them on being financially savvy. Having to attend sessions of parental talks on being financially smart too have opened up my mind on the need to be financially smart despite the different level on wealth everyone had. And for the coming year, the goal is to find a time to cancel the Citibank credit card - bad service, manipulative with well rehearsed scripts for outsources customer service. The other goal And now that the world did not end - I guess I will have to continue living like the world will never end and settle the balance of the debts in another credit card. It feels awful ;(

Having more time on my own means I have also been able to write more! I enjoyed contributing to YSK that  it feels so uneasy not to receive emails constantly. Yes, I am a workaholic! Those little write ups have pretty much funded my shopping too. Actually those little extra money have pretty much funded my life, since salary is always late :/
The social media and blogging platform have brought me much exposure and friends. I have gotten more freelancing jobs than I could ever ask for. Opportunity is abundance. Really is a matter of being there and knowing people at the right time when it's in need. I have gotten something confirmed few months down the road. Those extra money will surely help to implement whatever that I have learnt in MoneyTree =D

And of course, having said that, all the exposure have created a bolder me!
Sometimes I do wonder where does the thick skin confidence comes from?
As much as I dwell on the fact that  I am fat (which I am), the shamelessness in public display of boldness just doesnt seem to sink.
I guess I am a born exhibitionist. And it is addictive.

am I hot enough for you babeh? =P

Being an exhibitionist means I love being fanciful in front of the camera. Regardless of whoever's camera! Most probably I won't die leaving a legacy, but I have at least ticked off some of the stuff that can happen in a person's life (whatever shit I am talking about)

check my flat ass

I have started the year wrong I think. I had bittergourd for lunches for a week. As the name suggest, 'bitter' / 'fu-kua' in Chinese, I hope it won't be gicing me a year long of bitterness ;/
I should have eaten something gold, like the pumpkin (kam-kua) to start the year. So random...

bitter-gourd face

Mum is still healthy as ever. I am glad she is. Not many of her age is as strong as she is. She is as irritating as ever. Something that old age did not manage to change her. I still have not done enough for her. I don't know how else. I try to compensate it in the form of monetary. Not that I have a lot.
I don't know if this is a concern, but have you ever wondered what will you do when the last of your parent leave you. Leaving you to be an orphan? Being on your own eventually. But being 34, I supposed this is just a phase that everyone have got to go thru. But I got into thinking about this almost every day. 
Most probably she will leave me not having to live a life she could have once wished for - a comfortable and worry free one. One where she will be taken care of by her one and only favourite son. But everyone we know, knew that it won't happen :(
I hope she will still be as healthy as she can for more years to come, and perhaps lesser irritating, of course.

I tried thinking of anything significant that could have happened in 2012 and nothing came up. I never went for any concert. Didn't catch a glimpse of any Prime Minister, celebrities or anyone important. Except for a guy who loves me like a boss! I don't think dying my hair in dip dye color is even worth mentioning. 
I basically survived the year in one piece with nothing extra ordinary or lesser than ordinary. but I lived another day if that's worth mentioning =D

For 2013, I think I am going to make a habit to fully pen down my daily 'to-do' and keep myself occupied with more work and yoga, of course! I am not sure if I can be as determined as Jaclyn who most probably spend 4 hours a day in the gym burning fats, stress and whatever that can be burnt, another 1 hour to google and store gym-going motivational quotes, like this;

@Fit_Motivator: Mental will is a muscle that needs exercise, just like muscles of the body. -Lynn Jennings

or this :

Not making any resolution as it is really like mocking ownself with a list of things that most probably sounded more like things that could happen ONLY if you own fairy dust powder. But I think it is going to be a good year ahead, if I can treat -
- talking to idiot as an acknowledgement that there are so many less competent people in this world and I am way better than them..
- people who waste my time as part of my contribution back to the society by giving them a second chance to being human
-traffic jam as a platform to do some work. Now this, I think I need some gadgets..
- not having enough money to always satisfy the Wants and Needs as part of the journey to being compassionate

I hope the bitter-gourd consumption won't affect me much :/
Because I just ate stir fry bitter gourd with chicken again today!!
