Chocolate Fudge

Hi everyone! Hope you're all doing well ^-^

I had an exciting week because I attended this orientation at work and it was super really fun! I met alot of new people who were also new to the company I started working for. One of the main important things I learn during the orientation the health, safety and security issues, like which extinguisher to use for which kind of fire, where are the emergency exits & the fire drills~ God forbid for such things to happen but we need to be prepared.

Friday was quite busy day & became quite hectic because a sandstorm suddenly hit the UAE!!

0.0 it was a scary chaotic moment because I was just walking up on the stairs when I suddenly heard a weird sound coming from outdoors!!! I looked through the window to realize that everything turned white because the wind was really strong and it was carrying sand with it, destroying anything weak against it (like our small plants & papaya tree which was carrying a lone fruit my mother was planting that was just growing really well). Mom & I saved the rest of her babies but the front yard and our balcony and backdoor was covered in sand (later we found out that some of the rooms upstairs & our living room also got sand~).

Saturday, mom & I ran quick errands & payed bills. I also had an opportunity to make a quick shopping spree! well it wasn't literally shopping spree, just few things I need to get like: biscuits from work (apparently Digestive is a  big deal at work & it seems everyone loves it & has it in their drawers :P) & green tea~ I also got hair dye since I felt it was time. I was letting my hair grow out since April 2010 & is at a length I have never experienced in my life! To feel it beyond my shoulders made me go @-@, yet I am happy with my decision of letting it grow rather than chopping it short like I used to.

 This is the dye I got:

Now, the color of the dye is "golden brown" and the color check, you can see it'll turn into brown with some tints of blond underneath. The dye, somehow, gave reddness with the brown rather than the blond on my hair. I shouldn't be judging already too soon because the color comes out gradually, but this is what happened so far. Ummm I guess while I'm at it I should confess that I left the dye longer than 40 mins (maybe about a total of an hour) and I assume that could be the reason why~
Anyways, I'm still happy because my hair had been half brown half black for some months now~

I was just about to end my blog but then I decided, "what if I posted my favorite song of the week"? Interested? Not? Let me know what you think.
For this week, this Korean girl group made their comeback after more than a year on Jan 28th on Korean music shows. Their track is called "Back it Up". It's a fun song to dance to (& to play when you're getting ready to out to work or out!) & one that won't get out of your head :p

Time for bed as a new day awaits me!
Hope you all enjoyed/enjoy your weekends! Take Care!! <3

Chocolate Pie & Ice cream

Hi everyone! Hope you're all well.
This week has gone quite well I must say. I went through it just like any other week: Home, Work, Sleep :3
However, last Thursday (20th) I attended this training at work called "Who Moved My Cheese?" (based in the book with the same title written by Spencer Johnson). I highly recommend everyone to read the book for a life changing opportunity (& if you have read it, then read it again :p). Just a quick explanation, it talks about the change that happens in our lives and the different approaches that people choose & its effect.
As I went through the training, I felt like it was wacking me on my head and shaking me to wake up. ^-^;
One thing I learned is to move on even after acknowledging the change. Thank God I didn't tear up or it'll be completely embarrassing!!!

While at work, I found a super delicious desert!!! Apple pie & ice cream with chocolate sauce!!! OMG just so heavenly good!! The combination of warm & cool is just indescribable!! I highly really advice you to try it (esp if you a sweet tooth)!!!

This morning, I watched this interesting & beautiful video on youtube. It's done by WongFu Productions.

Check out their youtube channel:

Have a nice day/ night!
Take Care <3

Chocolate Berries n' Cream

Hey everyone! Been a long while hasn't it?
Been another busy week+laziness~ ugh I should stop letting laziness get to me~

Well one thing that I'm unexpectedly excited about is Wild Wadi's new slides!
They even have their own youtube channel where they posted the launch of the rides~ Seems scary yet pretty awesome :p
The slides are called Tantrum Alley & Burj Surj. Both hold the concept of tornadoes & storms. Tantrum Alley has 3 'tantrums' that  will take you around and around, & Burj Surj has 2 'bowls' that goes really fast.
Here's the link to their channel & video of the launch:
Their Facebook fanpage:
You can follow them @wildwadidubai
Link to their website:

Another thing I'm literally hooked up to is: Twitter!
I guess it's one of those things that you need people to tell you how it actually works (unless you love exploring and trying out alot ^^). In my case, I had a Twitter account somewhere in the beginning of 2010 (thts as close as I can remember) but never understood it 100% until I had a valuable opportunity to talk to social media experts to tell me everything about twitter and also introduced me to TweetDeck (a very useful software where you get the tweets instantly & manage it, I'm probably not explaining it so please google it). I also downloaded Ubertweet in my Blackberry so if I need to tweet, I use my phone without the need to use my laptop :p even if you have to tweet more than 140 words, it can automatically tweet using You don't need to log in to to tweet long or even if uploading pics & vids, it'll automatically upload using Plixi (or other photo share site that has Twitter )!

If you like, you can follow me @herroyalsweet

This coming week,  it'll be absolutely exhausting XP many meetings to attend with my bosses~

All I can do is look forward to the future & just do my best!! <3

Take care everyone!

Candy Canes

Merry Belated Christmas & Happy New Year!!!
How are you all are doing? I almost missed another week of no update!!!
Sorry ^-^;

Well really not much happened, just full of excitment and anxiety of what 2011 has in store for us.
Kinda scary, huh? Like, a surprise party you'd rather not have/attend to.

It's been getting colder here in Dubai, so I got out all the sweaters and jackets that I have XD

In the last 2 weeks of December, I've been into shimmer makeup~

yes shimmery eyes. it's not very clear but it's suppose to be emerald shimmer on my bottom eyelash.

For dinner, I got myself in the kitchen to make french toast!~

I don't eat white bread so I used brown bread instead. It tastes a tad bit different but still good~
I drank it with milk & honey :D

I hope you all have a wonderful new year <3
