little red dots

No, I am not talking about polka dot patterns. I am talking about my skin.

From how my skin looks like, it definitely needs help. Like immediately please.

I need a visit to the Derma as soon as possible. Endure the pain to get better. *sighs*

I don’t want to look like my skin is inspired by dots of snow/polka dots or in my case dots of pimples.

As soon as the dermatologist saw me she says I am breaking out due to an allergic reaction. I was like, I thought this was stress… She said yes, and that too.

Stress + Allergic reaction = current breakout. 

And no pricking for this time. Which is good and bad at the  same time. Good because no pain, Bad because I have to deal with the bumps/redness. And Christmas is only a few days away! 

I was asked to switch soap, shampoo, toothpaste and prescribed oral and topical medications. No sunblock on the face for the meantime.

These are the products I am currently using.  The classic Colgate, Dove bar for sensitive skin, and Pantene shampoo.

I am happy to say they seem to be working fine!

My skin is still far from being acne free, but it is improving.

Hopefully by the next Derma visit, she can give me a sunblock which I can use because I am scared that my freckles will multiply. . .

a little sister

20 years ago I wished for a little sister.

I was eight years old then. I promised God I would be an awesome big sis if I get one.

I did get one. On Dec 15, 1993 Mum delivered a little girl! After 3 days, my Dad and I plus our nanny picked up my little sister from the hospital nursery. Went home with a little red faced girl swaddled under a fluffy yellow blanket. I was happy to see her, and take her home with us. She looked so tiny and fragile. I was actually afraid to hold her.

As soon as we arrived home, we placed her beside Mum. I asked for permission to touch her.

I held her feet, it was tiny and red too!

Now my little sis is turning 20 this Sunday. (Dec. 15)

Time flew by so fast. I feel old! hahahaha! A while ago I was planning for her debut and now, I am planning for her 20th. 

And because I just watched Disney’s Frozen yesterday, I cant help but see the similarity of Anna and Elsa’s pose to our pose.

and that is just a random thought… and maybe that is why i wrote this post?

I am really lucky I have a sister.

We often do not see things the same way, we argue and fight but at the end of the day, we are friends, we are family and most of all we love each other.

christmas came early

And just like that it is already Christmas. I am already feeling all the “Christmas associated feelings” like running out to complete my Christmas shopping list, getting cups of hot coffee, searching for my sister’s birthday present, running off to get my friends some nice stuff,  calling up a bakeshop to get the neighbors some warm brownies, buying inappropriate amounts of wrapping paper and ribbons because I like the color, it is shiny and find the pattern pretty, assembling my makeshift gift wrapping station at home, looking at window displays for clothes that might be this year’s Christmas outfit/ new year’s outfit getting them and then buying again because the new one looked better, suppressing the need to light up all the twinkle lights strung at home because the electric bill will spike up, and the panic buying of generic gifts en masse. (or my so called Christmas biscuits/chocolate for those whose name I forgot to place on the list) Walking around the mall feeling like I am on a shopping spree and going home with only a hundred on my pocket. I really look forward and get all excited about this!

 

*And because it is a good thing to get everyone’s presents in their size/color…etc. I am sharing with you my Christmas wishlist survey which I send to all my friends come yuletide season so I can pick out the right stuff for my friends.
