@HeraOK Thanks for the input. We have brought her to see doctors, but she would act 'normal' and was prescribed with medication to which she refuse to eat cause she said it makes her nauseous and foggy. She's also very sturbborn. She'll see a doc and say that she's fine and that her children are just concerned and there's nothing to worry about. Psychiatrists who can speak mandarin in this country(Brunei) are pretty scarce too. So it's difficult to find someone whom she can communicate comfortably with without trying to hide anything. Her act of worship is a little complex, so I don't know how praying and professional help can help. I believe she will only recover, if she acknowledges her disease and genuinely seeks help. Otherwise, it's all for naught.
4 months, 1 week ago on WOOHOO! I Have Depression!
My mum had depression. Well I think she did. It's the way she dealt with it that makes me believe so. My mum was overwhelmed with debt and legal troubles until the point where she totally dropped everything and left it to my dad to handle. She would not acknowledge depression but soon claim that she found God and prayed fervently. And her actions spoke louder than words. She would suddenly talk to herself, pray in the temple and pout her mouth staying really still, and even had a 'possessed' episode.
We thought it was just something 'dirty' and all that, but after that we concluded, it was all in her head. My mum lost it. She was in her own world. She would do her things normally and nag like usual, but she'll still 'talk to her God like an old friend' till this day. (For the record, I don't believe in religion)
Everytime we go to the temple, she would act all funny and sit in a corner, smiling to herself, nodding or pouting in that annoying smirk of a pout that I want to slap her sometimes. Sorry for the frankness, but I just want to say....it's not easy dealing with someone who has depression who also happen to be someone you hold very dear to you.
We brought her to see mediums(at the beginning when we thought she was really possessed), and brought her to see shrinks....they prescribed her medication, and she would always refuse to eat it until we gave up. The doctors would tell us it's pretty serious for her because her depression led her to this state of mind. Because she could not find a silver lining, she resorted to religion to cope with herself. It's her way of finding peace with all that is ugly in this world. Some people do it with drinking, sex, stealing...hers was praying.
Nowadays, she would do things without consulting my dad or us(siblings), and think nothing of the consequences or she would refuse to go out with her old group of friends.
It's a good thing you have realized depression sooner than later. I believe it's the first step into recovery. My mum to this day refuse to think there's something wrong and would always try to drop the argument or bring up invalid/incoherent points to justify her actions. Depression could lead you to many things. It could lead you to do ridiculous things or lead you to insanity, or worse, suicide. Yours is probably still the early stage and I get how you are feeling upset with how everyone is judging you for feeling this way. (My mum reacted the same way) But I also would like to point out, it's not easy for people who actually have to deal with their loved ones going through this. My dad always gets so heartbroken to see my mum this way.
Some people might get annoyed, some people might get frustrated, some people might sympathize. I'm just hoping you are able to see from our eyes, the people whom watches our loved ones deteriorate from the sideline. Some people are not going to agree with you when you say you have depression but I'd like to say 'Be curious, not judgemental' (Walt Whitman)
Anyway, I suggest watching Silver Linings Playbook, eat ice cream, read a good book, anything that could distract you from dwelling in your negative thoughts. This too shall pass
I've used this eyeliner, and I agree with you with some points. I don't know if you've tried this, but I tried tightlining with this 'horizontally'. Like instead of facing the tip directly onto your upper waterline, you position the tip horizontally, so it'll cover as much base, without hurting yourself.
I've sorta mastered it on my right eye, but can't do the same for my left. T_T
4 months, 3 weeks ago on The Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner Is Probably Not For Oily Eyelids
@BunBunMakeupTips LoL! I keep having this misconception that the gelspresso is an actual gel liner but in pencil format. Have to re-read again. *Knocks head * xD
True enough, it didn't last on my waterline. I tried to like it, I really did. But I think my eyelids are too oily, or perhaps the humidity here sucks. Anyway, gonna switch to a liquid liner or at least until I can find that perfect gel liner that doesn't leave me dark eye boogers.... *tmi*
Thanks for replying. :)
4 months, 4 weeks ago on Learnt To Love It The Hard Way: Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner Review
Okay, I bought the golden black because I read your review on it, and there was a sale so I thought why not. It's still the first day for me and sad to say I'm not as impressed as I hoped to be. D:
I've applied primer and eyeshadow prior to the gelspresso on my lids and waterline, but I noticed it would still melt towards my undereye at the end of the day. It's not exactly a creamy mess, but more of dusty particles spread. I guess it's cause the AC environment I'm in is so dry; it causes my oil glands to go on overdrive. Even my primer can't save me.
And I'm not a fan of the glitter cause this means it's gonna be a lot harder to remove them with speckles still on your face after using a make up remover. But I'm gonna keep going at it for a few more days as it's still too early to judge.
The good thing I can say however is that it stayed put, and there's a neat sharpener, and it's extremely SOFT on your lids.

I love makeup and always look for new techniques and tips and reviews for makeup/skincare products, so this is actually a no brainer. Of course I'll still follow you. And I quite like your writing style because it's clean cut and very detailed. So yeah, count me in!
Your analogy of the spectators and the matador in a bullring is spot on too! Couldn't help but chuckle.
As for your skin, I'm actually quite surprised it healed so much quicker than I expected. I'm really happy for you. Continue to stay strong and brave! And much love to your parents as well. I could sense you tearing up as you were writing your relationships with your loved ones, and I in turn had tears barely escaping the corners of my eyes. :')

@Pinklady22Okay, let me enlighten your little brain.
" But after a visit to Dr Joyce lim's clinic and knowing that the extraction of the pus worsen the condition of ur ugly face ! And now ur asking for advise as on whether to take legal actions?? Fake aren't u??? What happen to ur belief that no salon with 30 over yrs of experience would destroy their customers face??? Fake aren't u??? What happen to ur belief that no salon with 30 over yrs of experience would destroy their customers face??? "
To answer your question, it's simply because she's being bullied. With no sort of compensation nor apology, the salon refused to acknowledge their negligence hence why she's only starting to ask for help now. She gave them the benefit of the doubt(as evident by seeing them twice cause they're supposed to be the expert here). And it backfired. So there you go!
As to " I see no reasons to yWhy u should not name the salon?"
She has her reasons in which:
(A) she already stated that she believes no company in their right mind would do it intentionally. It's not like you go to school and the teachers purposely teach you how to swear vulgarities. So its her moral beliefs, and that's commendable.
(B) she could face legal problems if she were to mention the salon, and be counter-sued for defamation and make things even uglier, not until she has spoken to her lawyer about this which brings me to my next point
(C) she needs to protect herself! Her identity, money, credibility, time, is on the line here. Not you people. If you know where the salon is, are you going to sue that salon? The most you'd do is probably boycott, in which the salon could sue her for defamation. (Why am I going round in circles? Do you get my drift now?)
(D) She needs to wait for the right time. If let's say both are able to come to a settlement mutually and without drama in court, that would've been recommended.
It's negligence on their part, and her naiveness that brought them to these circumstances. I shudder to think of someone like you to take petty things so literally.

Hey there Juli.
I've been reading your journey to recovery and I have to say I had the same mindset as you initially. Like 'how come they can't just go see a dermatologist...?' or 'why won't they wear makeup going out?' I know judgmental of me...but that changed after I read your post.
This is actually the first time reading your blog, and immediately it felt like I've been reading your posts for ages. Thanks for the honesty and candidness. This could be the start of something new. :)
Anyway, I know nothing about legal matters (Does watching Suits count?) , but I do feel that it's only right that you be compensated for all your troubles. But like one of the commentator mentioned earlier, be mentally/physically prepared cause this shyt ain't a laughing matter once you start pursuing it. Perhaps you can start with a professional lawyer from an esteemed law firm, and discuss your options.
Anyway, I'm hoping for the best for you. Stay strong.
Love from Brunei, Amy
