Photo Manipulation and Colouring

2 Mood Swing
I found a rather interesting photoshop tutorial at Deviantart recently. It is called photo manipulation or photomanip for short. So today I spend the whole afternoon and night (well, not exactly whole..before and after classes, and after dinner) editing and doing trial and error on my model's picture, Ye Pin@Joyce which I "stole" from her friendster account hehe

The Original Picture


sketch-drawing look..i likey :D

**click for larger view

not as nice as the original tutorial, but this is one of the best result I can produce. lolx.


Special thanks to Ye Pin for being my model for this tutorial :)
Credits to Nocturnal-Devil and Cutspring from Deviantart for the wonderful and interesting tutorials :)

ps. I'm addicted to photoshop now =X

Was doing my marketing tutorial just now but in the end I give up because I don't know what the hell am I writing. Why must some of the questions be so blardee crappy, like those "Internet" exercises? Make your resume accessible to millions of people. Consult or for help in writing your resume. See for ideas in planning your career. Get prepared for a job interview. Also, use the Web to determine what salary you can get in the city of your choice in the United States. " It looks "fun" alright, but only when you have nothing better to do. If it's not for tutorial being part of the coursework marks, I would not care about this crappy stuff =.=

On a happier note, I've received my old class photo from k5 via email. Brings back the good ol' memories of foundation days :)

I miss my foundation year :(

The IT students of PT03

There are only 5 girls in my group, but I do not understand why do we have to stand at the back of all the guys, which result in our faces being half-blocked by them. So not gentlemen at all. Hm.

~Time passes so fast...It has been two and a half years now..~

Diet for Fat Belly

1 Mood Swing

It is everyone dreams to own a flat belly, especially for the fairer sex as we are more self-conscious about our body image. This goes the same for me. Recently I have discovered that I have gained some extra unwanted weight due to my less than healthy lifestyle and the worst part is the weight gain goes to the belly. As a university student, I have not been able to find the time and motivation to exercise due to classes to attend, exams, assignments to rush and extra curriculum activities, all which take up most of my time here. By the end of the day, I just don't have the energy to exercise anymore.

But I have found out that a diet called the Flat Belly Diet helps to eliminate belly flat almost instantly with no extra exercise needed! It is not your regular diet plan where you can find commonly nowadays, but it is based on a new research that discovered that eating healthy fats (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids or MUFA) actually help us to lose weight, specifically at the belly area!

Now what is exactly the MUFA diet here? The five main MUFA foods are dark chocolate, oils, nuts and seeds, avocados, and olives. And yes, eating dark chocolate is the new way to lose weight! Now you don't have to feel guilty eating them next time !

Interested and want to know more about the Flat Belly Diet? Then check out their website now!

1 Litre of Tears Drama

0 Mood Swing

I have just finished watching one of the most famous J Drama ever, 1 Litre of Tears. Well you can guess from the title already that it is a freaking sad story, especially towards the end. But it's really touching though :) Cause you'll feel that you'll learn a lot from Aya's words and also feel her helplessness while facing this incurable disease.

"Right now if I don’t write down the things in my heart, tomorrow..then I would forget it and it will dissapear..”

Aya with her supportive and loving family

Synopsis: 1 Litre of Tears (1リットルの涙 Ichi Rittoru no Namida) is a Japanese television drama by Fuji Television about a girl who was diagnosed with a disease called Spinocerebellar Degeneration when she was 15 years old, and was able to continue her life until her death at the age of 25 years old.

The plot is based on the true story of a Japanese girl named Aya Kito (木藤亜也 19 July 1962 - 23 May 1988), who had the same disease.

She kept writing in her diary to remember her experiences until she could no longer hold a pen.

Aya simply wished to live until the end of her life, and the purpose of writing in the diary was to remind herself to not give up.

Her diary 1 Litre of Tears was published shortly after her death. It encouraged many people, healthy or diseased, because of its inspiring and courageous messages.

One of the very few dramas which manage to make my eyes teared while watching it T.T

Starbucks Study

0 Mood Swing
JLPT exam is just 3 weeks away from now, and due to the freaking hot weather these days which drove away our mood to study, Jo and I decided to pack our laptops, books etc. and head over to Starbucks because there's air-con, fast Wi-fi access and nice comfy sofas to sleep on to study.

Ordered Green Tea Frappuccino. Let me clarify that I'm not a fan of Starbucks (cause to me is a waste of money) but green tea frappuccino has got me addicted, I think. Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino is indeed a Matcha Japanese green tea blended with milk and ice. ( highly recommended: do not add the whipped cream). I likey :)

Back to study mood. We were so serious in studying that Jo can't help but smile proudly to herself. Haha.

**warning** this post contains excessive usage of foul words and unstable emotion.

Just found out something. Well, my patience has reach its limit. I think I have had enough of this. I do not wish to spend my remaining one and the half year in university feeling stressed up and angry over some immature bitch person. I've put up with this bitch person's actions long enough no matter how she treat me. Enough is enough. I want to leave mmu with happy memories, not bitter memories. It is not worth it!

SM . that bitch . Some people who really get me angry and want to make life harder should

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, and forget about the ones who don't.."
