Ten Things You Thought You Knew About Lesbians

October 19th, 2014 by sixpegs

…But You Don’t.

IMG_0395

I have once had a “friend” come up to me and asked me in the face why I chose to be a lesbian,
and is it whether because I don’t like cocks.

Maybe she thought she had a good sense of humour, but I was honestly quite offended
because I’m quite sure she wasn’t talking about the rooster.

And because a person with higher EQ would know how to choose his/her words more carefully,
not in this insensitive and an almost-mocking manner.
I hope she didn’t go around asking her childless female friends why they do not have children,
and whether it is because they don’t like their husbands’ penises.

See what I mean?
These are personal choices, no?
This “friend” I have is just thick. Period.

I think the lesbians are pretty misunderstood.
After a survey with my lesbian friends (firstly, no, lesbians do not only have lesbian friends), we came up with a list. Read the rest of this entry »

Sensodyne True White

October 5th, 2014 by sixpegs

My pearly whites are very precious to me, because I believe having clean and neat teeth
will help make someone look clean, fresh and polished.
That is why my toothpastes are always whitening ones, and I also visit a dentist
to have my teeth whitened whenever I feel there is a need to.
But because I also have sensitive teeth, I sometimes have to alternate between using
sensitivity toothpaste and one for whitening.

What I really like about Sensodyne True White toothpaste is how
it is both a toothpaste that whitens my teeth and helps it cope with sensitivity.
For those lucky few with no sensitivity issues, you can really cannot imagine how annoying (and painful)
it is to be struck by a sudden wave of “shock” when devouring your favourite gelato or
when you’re drinking iced water from a cup without using a straw. *wails*

And because I have bruxism, I uncontrollably grind my teeth at night and it has indirectly
caused my teeth to become increasingly sensitive over time;
prolly because I am gradually grinding away the enamel on my teeth. I know it sounds scary. Hahaha!

I also LOVE the package they sent me. Brand new toothbrush, Sensodyne True White toothpaste
and a bottle of Moscato to celebrate my new discovery of an awesome new toothpaste that
I’ll be stocking up hereforth! :p

Heh heh! You cannot see the toothbrush and toothpaste in here because I’m using them now already lah!

Sensodyne True White has been clinically proven to be super gentle and
is 10 times less abrasive than many everyday-whitening toothpastes!
Totally helps since I don’t need more abrasion on my teeth please. Haha!

TrueWhite.com.sg is now also running a digital campaign called #TrueWhiteStyle.
You can visit the website above to follow the behind-the-scenes of the campaign and
be entertained and see how Drea and Rachel did the shoots for the campaign,
photographed by renowned photographer Russel Wong!

Till then, don’t forget to head on down to the nearest drugstore or supermarket to grab your first tube of Sensodyne True White!

Travel Made Different – Venice

September 27th, 2014 by sixpegs

Wanderlust is seriously kicking in right now, as I browse through the photos
taken during the recent trip to Italy. It is my first time to Venice, I know it’s long overdue,
but please allow me to put these wonderful memories up on my blog so I can always come back to read about them.

A lot of people tell me that Venice is a romantic city.
May I please also add that this is such a unique city with so much to offer culturally and ahem, “materialistically”. Haha! The first thought that came to my mind while weaving around Venice is
“Wow! That’s a lot of big labels in such a tiny city!”.
If you’re looking for some serious shopping, Venice is definitely the place to be at.

And of course, when you’re in Venice, how can you possibly miss being in Piazza San Marco (St Mark’s Square)?

This place is picture perfect (minus the hordes of tourists).

A must-do when you’re in Venice. Visit St Mark’s Square in the middle of the night.
I know this sounds crazy, but I heard that it is a magical sight.
Yes, I haven’t done it yet because it’s not easy to wake me up after I’ve fallen asleep.
Will do it the next time I’m there. Heh!

When in Venice, roam around without a map and take in the sights and sounds.
Venice is a really small city but trust me, even if you walk with a map,
you might lose your way too because the buildings all look almost the same (to me at least)!
The streets are old but charming and the there is a picture-perfect corner every 15 mins.

I love exploring new places because there is always something new to see, always something interesting I’d find.
I love the sights and sounds in Venice!

Those are food. And these…

Screen Shot 2014-09-27 at 4.14.50 pm

These are made of Murano glass! And of course, how can I possibly leave Venice
without some Murano glass accessories for myself?

Unfortunately, I only had one and a half full days in Venice.
I think it would be great to visit Murano to learn more about the making of the famed Murano glass
if you have more time in Venice the next time you visit.

When we were there, we also took a gondola. It set us back by about 80 euros –
pretty expensive for a 15-min ride if you ask me.
But I really respect how much effort the gondoliers put into maintaining their gondolas
and the dedication they have for their work. Most of the occupants in Venice are in tourism industry.
If I was born a Venetian, I don’t mind being a female gondolier! Do they allow that? Haha.
I need to read up more about them!

Our gondola headed out to the open seas!

And gave us a nice view of St Mark’s Basilica!

On the way back, we also cruised by Ponte dei Sospiri, also known as the Bridge of Sighs.

Screen Shot 2014-09-27 at 4.16.44 pm

This bridge has a beautiful and tragic story, it was said that the view from this bridge
is the last view of Venice that prisoners will see before their imprisonment.
As the bridge name suggests, prisoners will sigh at the beauty of Venice through the windows on the bridge
before taken down to their cells.
However, a local legend also said that lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss
if they kiss on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge of Sighs as the bells of St Mark’s Campanile toll.
That’s some skill needed for perfect timing man! No wonder they say true eternal love don’t come easy. Haha!

I hope that legend is not made up by some gondolier. I shall blindly buy beautiful legends.

Another renowned bridge we visited was the Rialto Bridge, one of the four bridges over the Grand Canal in Venice.

Heineken Cities Festival

September 16th, 2014 by sixpegs

I am still in the festive mood as I scroll through and look at the pictures taken
at the recent Heineken Cities Festival.
For those of you who had missed the festival this year, the Heineken Cities Festival was a celebration
of the launch of the 6 Heineken City Edition bottles named after the top cities of the world –
Singapore, Amsterdam, Shanghai, London, New York and Rio de Janeiro.

I have never attended any parties like that in Singapore; the festival took place
along Club Street and Ann Siang Hill. Yes, ON THE STREETS!
The whole area was decorated with the flags of the different countries where the cities are from,
and littered with street performers and icons representing the 6 cities.
