An Overwhelmed Dork

My Monday blues soon went away when I found out that my blog is shortlisted for Look Magazine blogging competition. I was so excited about it all day and far too anxious and excited! To read my entry post, simply click here to view it. I am so overwhelmed by all the comments on that post. Thanks, everyone! And thank you to Look Magazine! And also a huge thank you to everyone on Twitter who sent such lovely tweets. Congrats to the other bloggers who got shortlisted, they're all brilliant, and good luck for the next stage for when Look Magazine choses the finalists bloggers.

Instead of celebrating that with an outfit post, I'm going to embarass myself a little bit here. Why not! Something a little different, mix things up a little bit! I'm going to break it to you... I am the biggest dork in the world. You knew that already, didn't you! Here are some out-takes from the last outfit post, looking far less composed! You know when a bee/wasp is buzzing around your face and people always say "They're more scared than you are!" or "STAY STILL"!! Well, I never stay still (as captured below), quite the opposite, in fact. Once I pulled a muscle in my neck because I (over)reacted so quickly. I really hate the buzzing. Gives me the heeby jeebies! I am truly pathetic!!!!

  42. hehehehehe....this post made me laugh:) Thanks for making my day as i'm super tired and sleepy right now and dying for lunch time. Btw, I loveee your look here, still looking gorge despite being dorky,lol but its all good cuz i've got the biggest bee phobia due to some childhood incident so i get the feeling,hehe...here's a little bee story for u:)I once saw a bee when i was in high school and it kept chasing me in the courtyard so i kept running around while screaming and swearing (FxxxK, sXXXt lol), and guess what? The principal had to rush over to calm me down while i was swearing at her without knowing (i covered my face in my hands), hahahahaha....so funny but embarrassing! hope that made your day too:)

    And a big congrats on being shortlisted for the Look Magazine blogging competition!! I'm sure your hard work will be paid off my dear:D

  60. Hahaa I love this! If only because I look very similar myself when confronted with the horrid things. It really is the noise they make! I've always said that if they were silent I wouldn't even flinch, the buzzing is just...uuughh.
    But onto more important things, congratulations! Wonderful news :D but I'm disappointed in your inability to eat ice cream, I mean...whuuuuttt?!?! :P
