These three weeks have been pretty crazy. Thinking back, everything seems like a blur because the days felt so rushed. The new Bubzbeauty.com should be launched very soon so I'm excited but of course nervous. I have been working hard on the website with my big sister, Kevin and Tim to make sure this website is easy for you guys to navigate. *Breathes a sigh of relief* Now that all the technical stuff is finished, I can finally update a diary entry by myself harharharhar! This means I don't need to type it into a Word File and wait for it to be uploaded. You guys have no idea how excited I am to be able to update freely myself.
So if you guys follow me on Twitter, you will probably know that I've been busy (surprise surprise). Everything suddenly came tearing down when a family incident happened causing everybody to be even more stressed and worried. On the way to an important meeting, I was so exhausted mentally and physically that my body refused to digest food. I haven't slept for 32 hours at that time so I ended up throwing up my McDonalds Breakfast in a train. Needless to say, I am put off McDonalds for a while. I remember feeling weak in my legs and the bin must've been 3 meters from me but it seemed like an impossible distance to get to because my vision was blacking out. During these 2 days, I have never prayed so much. I prayed for energy, I prayed for peace of mind, I prayed for the safety of my family, I was praying for everybody to have faith, I just kept praying and praying. Things are falling back into place now and my family seem to be closer than ever so I'm very thankful that in an event of a disaster, it can still bring people closer together. We just got to see the best in everything because it could've been worse.
But on to a happier subject, I'm very happy to announce that I am now a proud owner of a brand new apartment. No more renting/throwing money down a drain. Hong Kong is actually the most expensive country to buy properties so I was kind of bummed out with the cost of apartments. However, the good thing is mortgage rates are lower here so fingers crossed that I'll be able to handle it. I feel so grown up even though I have no money in my piggy bank anymore lol. Luckily, my boyfriend & I will be working hard for this apartment. We're very serious about each other and both hope that we can build a future together.We can't wait to move in but it is still under construction so we have 6 months or so to prepare. The reason I'm moving is because the current apartment I'm renting is just far too small. It's getting a bit crammed now and since I work at home a lot, I figured why not get a bigger place? The new apartment has a doggy park so Chubbi is going to love it (I hope lol).
Even though we won't be moving in till a while, I've already been planning how I want the apartment to look. It be nice to have a modern yet arty apartment. I don't need it to look flashy, just comfy & cosy is enough.
This was the show room of the apartment so my apartment probably won't look as good as this one lol. But I loved how they knocked down the doors so it's all open. I want an open kitchen but dad says it's not good because living room ends up being oily & smelly.
Wouldn't it be nice to wake up to colourful cups when you make your tea in the morning? I'm making sure that I'll have bright and bold cups to perk up my mood for the painful early start of the day.
You guys know I want one room to be green haha. Even just one wall is good enough because it's just calm & refreshing on the eyes. A lamp drapping over the sofa is nice too. Nice simple layout.
I'll keep you guys updated on the moving process but I would LOVE it if you guys offer me your advice on decorating (especially if you've been through it yourself). I still remember when dad was renovating his apartment and I woke up to see Mr Decorator using my nail clippers on his toes... What an interesting start to my day. So I'll be hiding my nail clippers for life now.
What else? Oh, regarding Bubbi Brushes; they are currently being produced as we speak. I've finalized them so I'm very happy with how they look and perform. Again, very nervous but also very excited. So I hope you guys will understand if I'm not uploading videos as often since I'm juggling between brushes, videos, apartment stuff, family, bubbi shirts etc.
Speaking of family, my sister and her boyfriend leave for Australia tomorrow *teary*. I'm going to miss them so much but I feel very blessed to have been able to spend a whole 3 weeks with them. But I know that it won't be too long before I see them again. Most of all, I know Kevin is looking after her well so this is all that matters. Quite a lot of you guys have asked if I've forgotten about my comedy channel. I haven't guys, I just haven't had enough time to sit down and write a script. My brother Ricky & Leon should be in Hong Kong for an extra month so hopefully they will inspire me with their (adorable) goofiness. Speaking of Leon, he told me today that I look like I've just received two rounds from Mike Tyson =( My face broke out in red rashes again so everybody is laughing at me (again). My left eye is actually swollen and I have a sexy moustache of red rashes around my mouth. I have no idea what it is but man, my face feels like it is on FIRE. My wisdom tooth is trying to come through so currently got sore gums, throat and ears sob sob. Anyway, this post is getting ridiculously long so I'm going to stop here.
Until next time, take care guys!
