Hair Transformation : Long to Short ?



I have went through so many different types of hair transformation, from the long purple hair- pink hair- green hair?!- short blonde and then now short black hair. I just can't stop trying out new colors, I am not sure about you guys but I always went through this period of time which I get bored of my own hair (literally every 3 months).

I hope I can stick to my short black hair for now, it's a terrifying choice to get my long hair snapped off- I was super worried that I'd look hella weird/ ugly/ whether my face shape suit the hair cut but in the end I just went for it! Life is too short to waste on choosing the same thing everyday, if you are thinking whether to give your hair a huge transformation then you should totally give it a go~!




I am always in a panicking mode especially when I am in a salon before making a huge decision about my hair, I was such a baby during the day I cut my hair short but luckily the hairstylist was super kind and comforting which help me keep my cool! The downside to my current hair color now is that it is turning brown/ blonde after every wash... which is frustrating due to the hair bleach from the previous blonde hair.



So what do you guys think about my hair? Should I continue keeping it short or grow my hair out ? (: For more photos, check out my Instagram- Birdie Liau , do leave your IG name down below so I can follow you and check out your IG as well! x


Breaking Boundaries


Boundaries can be such a scary invisible force, setting up boundaries for myself and creating this invisible line of what I should and shouldn't do can be limiting. I am so glad that I discovered this bad cycle of sticking to safer route and not trying out new things before it gets too bad, so for the past few months I am trying to push my own boundary to try out tons of new stuffs every week and do stuffs that I won't normally do or even those that scare me! At first, it can be super nerve-wrecking but after completing those stuffs - it become a sense of relief and added confidence, this is definitely a wake-up call to be more daring and adventurous!



Anyway, I have been trying to buy new interesting clothes as well to spice up my wardrobe and have more varieties of different style to pick from depending on my mood of the day. It's fun to experiment with clothing, hairstyles or even doing something different daily. It can be seen as small changes but small changes can adds up to something big and can make a huge positive change in life.



Thank you for reading! Here's a video that I just uploaded on YouTube:

Spring is in the air

Spring has been an amazing month for me! Can't believe I graduated from University on May, university was amazing while it lasted and I absolutely can't wait for the official graduation ceremony set to happen around November! So currently, I am taking a break trying to discover myself if it makes any sense and maybe travel around the world to discover places I have yet to visit. It's just so exciting, like the beginning of something new. Side Note: I am going to turn 21 this year, so this is another exciting thing for me to look forward to and it's going to happen in November as well.



Finishing university doesn't really feels much of a difference except having more free time, no more studying schedules, no more exams or assignments. It just literally feels like I am having a long break. Hope that I can get to spent this time wisely instead of wasting it away! I should probably get back to updating this space often as well, to keep it alive. That's that for today~ have a lovely day ahead of you x !

Talay Kata x Som Tam Super Deal


Ever since I am back from my Bangkok trip, I have been craving for some delicious Thailand food until it's finally satisfied over at Talay Kata's x Som Tam's event. Their Mookata Buffet is really the best, I have review it previously on my blog but this time round- Talay Kata have launched the two new buffet concept that's literally the best. I get to try their cooked food buffet as well as steamboat buffet there.


Firstly, it's the steamboat offering with Red Tom Yum Soup Base- this definitely satisfied me because I always have a hard-time choosing what I want to eat, so this is literally like best of both world. The Tom Yum Soup really matches so well with the type that I had over in Thailand, super love. I put some scallop, squid, golden mushroom and some white cabbage and the flavouring was just super yum.


I also tried out their colourful sticky rice dessert and I absolutely love it, even though it doesn't come with mango but it comes in different sides to match the sticky rice and I just love the colourful sticky rice because it's so pretty.



While the BBQ and Steamboat can take quite some time to prepare, Talay Kata solve this problem for you by upgrading it along with a wide range of Thailand-theme cooked dishes (changes on daily basis) - Shark Fin Soup, Braised Chicken, Fried Salted Egg Sotong, Fried Thai Basil Fish, Gai Satay (Super yummylicious), Grilled Chicken, Stir Fried  Veggie W Sambal Sauce, Drunken Prawn And Kang Kung Belachan which satisfied people like me that wanna eat something small while waiting for the BBQ food to be ready!

The cooked food buffet comes up with a steamboat top-up option to complete the meal which is super affordable~ it'll be officially launched on the 21st of April, so do mark your calendar to try out their newly launched cook-buffet over at :

Som Tam-



I have also previously review about my experience over at Som Tam on my blog, this time round I tried out their new set meals menu which was recently launched . It comes in 6 different types:  Thai Lemon Grass, Soft Shell Crab, Deep Fried Chicken Thai Garlic, Thai Basil Beef , Deep Fried Vegetable and Poached Tuna. All of them is super delicious, so it was really hard to pick out my favourite- but my absolute favourite will be the basil beef, soft shell crab and poached tuna. It's super worth it for the price, it cost around $8.80 to $12.80 and it's available all day (Monday to Friday), if you wanna have a drink to goes with the meal then it cost an additional $2 for a cooling lemongrass drink!  I was pretty shocked  to learn that because I thought the price range was for the student afternoon rate but guess what it's all day so you can eat there without burning a hole in your budget!

In total, I love my experience over at both places and will definitely go back there for more yummy authentic Thailand food! Thank you for reading (: x

The Sample Store x Beauty Keeper




The Sample Store x Beauty Keeper event was a blast, arrived pretty early for the event so it was pretty empty around 11:30am +. So I had quite some time to look around, before people started streaming in and I got to know and made some lovely new blogger friends during the event. The Beauty Keeper was also pretty generous by gifting me a goodie-bag when I arrived, mine consists of the Mollifix Sports Bra, Lamsamyick Beauty Brush, A cute note x a small pouch , Stretch Mark Remover (which I don't need for now) and a Sing China Stamps as well as a soda drink.


Then we had lunch over at Carnivore, which was a pretty much great meal. The service was amazing, I usually go there for dinner and this is my first-time going there for lunch and it was pretty good. After which, some bloggers and I waited for about another hour before the event officially starts so it consists of lots of talking, getting to know each other and passing time.


This was what's in my goodie bag, I love the sports bra- I actually get it washed up and wear it to gym on the following day and it's just super great, it provides the wonderful support and the design x colouring of the sports bra is just super pretty! Other than the sports bra, I also love the cute Paris note book which comes in super handy to write and bring it around.



Facial Mask Beauty Brush



StarSuki Cosmetic Set



All Belle Eyelashes



Userism - D.D Cream (SPF 50)



Mollifix Sports Bra



Taiwanese Aboriginal Facial Series Mask

We also get to look at all the pop-up booth around the area before the event officially commence, there are just so many selection of Beauty Keeper stuff available and I just adore that much effort are put into their packaging and not to mention I love their lip colour as well- super stunning selection of colours. There are some items that had caught my eyes, like the D.D cream which is pretty new and unique in these industry - it's like a more advanced version of the B.B and C.C Cream, as well as the Taiwanese Aboriginal Facial Mask- not only it has a beautiful unique packaging, it's also based on the authentic local culture of the Taiwan People that's based on the natural ingredients for the masks which seems super amazing.



The actual event commence around 1:30pm, the highlight of the event revolve around make-up artist Candy Tiong teaching us how to use the Beauty Keeper skincare range via demonstration of the products on the Sing China Contestant's Face, it was wonderful to get to know which circumstances to go for which products and what's the benefits and correct way to use the products. There are also many giveaway on-going throughout the event, via Q&As.


Overall, it was a fun-filled event which enable me to get to know new people with the same passion and I also get to learn so much more about Beauty Keeper which is a wonderful platform with such a wide range of beauty product.
