Out and About - End of 2012 Edition

♫ TVXQ - 이것만은 알고가 독백 (Before U Go)

It's 31st December 2012 already?! Dang, time sure passes quickly once you get over the fact that we all survived the Mayan Doomsday this year.

Anyway, this last edition of "Out and About" for 2012 will be a recap of some of the things I've done over the past couple of months, as well as some parts of 2012 that were truly memorable for me.

Earlier this month, Mayday's concert in Malaysia was announced. My brothers and I went to Paradigm Mall and queued  for FIVE hours just to buy their tickets. It was pretty crazy. Don't get me started on how much it sucked to line up for 5 hours and get lousy seats. Urgh, typical horrible organizers.

I got pretty crazy over the recent The Hobbit movie and watched it twice in the same week at the same cinema - once in IMAX 3D and once in normal 2D. Oh, and I also won a cute little The Hobbit book bracelet from Yuberactive's Facebook giveaway. :D

1 Utama's Christmas decorations were super cute this year, with the Snowmen & Friends in Pastryland theme. I totally feel like nomming the huge (non-edible) confectioneries!

Korean BBQ!
On Christmas Eve this year, my high school friends and I had a Korean dinner at Nak Won Korean BBQ. It was my first time having a proper Korean BBQ meal (Seoul Garden doesn't count because there's no pork LOL) and it was really good. I loved the many side dishes, especially the mushrooms. XD

After that, we went for some drinks at The Scott Garden. Wanted to order a beer tower but we were too full, so we got some cocktails instead. Kinda meh, but oh well. =/

My last purchase of 2012! Went to 1U to collect my prize (the gel eyeliner) from Etude House there, and decided to grab a couple of the Kissful Tint Chou since everything was Buy 1 Free 1. Might be doing a review on these soon, so keep an eye out. ;)

Now for the 2012 recap:

Jumped on the mint/turquoise bandwagon and never looked back. It's such an enigmatic colour, halfway between blue and green, and looks good on practically everybody.

Expanded my ring collection this year. I love cute, quirky rings (like the birdie and ramen noodles) as well as anything with bling, wings and bows. :P

Won a huge box of 6 full-sized Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams from a contest. This is probably one of the best prizes I've ever won wtf. Overwhelmed by the size of the box when I went to collect it. O___O

This photo best sums up what I've been doing in 2012 - online shopping! Seriously, it's come to the point that the Poslaju guy can recognize my name and asks me why I haven't been buying stuff lately wtflol. My mum has learnt to not say anything and only rolls her eyes when parcels arrive for me.

The Samsung Hello Kitty party was also an unforgettable one, as I got to meet some blogger friends and had a great time with the activities and move screening. 

This year was also a good one for my blog, because I got the opportunity to do lots of reviews on one of my favourite things - cosmetics! Some were bought by myself, while others were kindly sponsored/sent to me for review. 

How could I forget my beloved pink and purple dip dye?! This was definitely the highlight of 2012 for me (pardon the pun); it really gave me a confidence boost and I felt so much more alive when I was rocking it. You can bet that I'll be back with some crazy hair colours again in 2013! (●♡∀♡)

Last but not least, in the course of 2012, especially over the past few months, I've become unhealthily obsessed with several extremely handsome (and adorkable) Korean men. [Warning: Gifspam ahead!]

Park Yuchun (of JYJ)
Kim Junsu (of JYJ)
Basically JYJ because they are the dorkiest, cutest, most talented and perfect 3 people ever XD
Cho Kyuhyun (of Super Junior)
Jung Yunho (of TVXQ)
TOP (of Big Bang)
This is basically me everyday on Tumblr:
That's Yuchun in the frame, btw, pretending he is Junsu and acting cute. *coughdorkcough*

Thus ends my last "out and about" post for 2012. :D Going to have New Year's Eve dinner with my friends in a couple of hours, hope the LRT won't be packed since it's a long weekend. 

See ya'll next year, and Happy New Year 2013! ^O^☆♪)
