Really spoilt rotten.

Okay, so maybe the title is a little exaggerated but I really did get spoilt this month by the boyfriend. At the beginning of the month he finally allowed me to get my navel pierced. I had probably been nagging too much and he finally gave in to me. Sorry boyfriend, I love you and will continue to work to maintain a great body for you! Teehee
To make up for my absence because I have become a gym junkie, I did go to a dress-up party. My niece loves me so much that she wanted to dress just like me. We dressed up as Street Fighter's Chun Li ...if you couldn't tell.

So, as you may know I have been doing this diet & training probably since July-ish. That is as far as my progress pictures record. But in short, since July I have lost 10kg (22lbs). (Well as of the 23rd of October, I am now at an 11kg loss yeaaaah baby!) As promised by the boyfriend for reaching my first milestone goal and also my utmost commitment to go to the gym...he has bought me a handbag that I have been wanting for a long, long while now. So without further ado...tada!
This is my brand spanking new baby, the MCM Candy Bag in Pink. Fresh from South Korea with much love and many thanks to YunJi Unni for helping purchase and sending it over. It is super beautiful, don't you think?

In all honesty, I was a bit underwhelmed as I unwrapped it. The pink was a bit too vibrant for my liking. But the more that I look at it, the more I fall in love with it. The leather definitely is a bit hard but  beautiful quality that helps it keep its box-like shape and moreover I love the size of this bag along with a great length for a cross-body look. Very versatile for a girl like me who rarely carries anything beyond my purse, phone and keys. Price wise; online it is priced at 595,000KRW (approx. $600AUD). I know it isn't a Prada or Louis Vuitton but for me to own a bag this pricey already makes me feel so bad to the special man who bought it for me. And the reason I chose MCM was because it isn't even available anywhere in Australia which makes me feel more special! But I will definitely cherish it and use it well!! Thank you baby <3

In case you want to see the result of my efforts. Quite embarrassing to show however my friends through Instagram have been showing me amazing comfort and support. It still irks me though.
Another tada! Is there a difference? I honestly am someone who looks at myself in the mirror every single day. It's still hard for me to see a difference in my body shape and size and the only way I can tell is through taking progress pictures regularly. This comparison is still quite a major shock to me and I am still in disbelief.
My navel piercing!
I used to think weight loss was impossible. I always gave up. I always accepted things the way they were and never bothered to properly try or work for something. Since learning more about weight loss, fitness and having an amazingly supportive boyfriend, brother, cousin and my dear bestie, Sophia. I have grown to enjoy this kind of lifestyle.

I can't exactly say that I am fit. I really wish I had an amazeball body but I'm learning to be happy and learning to love it more. I'm still thoroughly unsatisfied. I'm still learning and growing each and every day. I will continue to strive and work hard to earn what I desire. Right now, I still feel like my journey is just beginning.

Unexpected goodness

September has finally ended and it's already mid-October. Seriously, I have no life. Get home from work and go gym. Afterwards I play with Chelsea because all she likes to do is scream at me, drool on me and pull my hair. It's tough love but you know, "if it's not rough it isn't fun" -Lady Gaga's Poker Face teehee

I went to a wedding the last time I posted. I didn't know anyone from the bridal party. All I knew it was Bach's soccer friend that was getting married and he dragged me along. The biggest irony was I ended up sitting on the exact same table as my eldest cousin. Seriously, major wtf.
Then looked over my shoulder and saw my bestie, Cong, from high school. Even more wtf LOL guess it is a small world. I ended up drinking and getting tipsy...at a wedding party where I supposedly knew no one. It turned out into a great night and I was really happy to be reunited with Cong and formally meet his girlfriend!
My fav picture of the night LOL
When October came around, I had this trance event where DJ Sander Van Doorn came to play a set in Melbourne. My day was good. Then it went shit and everything bad was just thrown at me and I was literally in tears as we drove to the venue. It wasn't bad just Bach came home moody, made me feel hideous and was angry at me for no good reason. At this point I didn't want to go etc. The moment we settled and had a few drinks, things turned out for the better. Alcoholic drinks make me wayyy too happy but Sander Van Doorn was pretty sick. He went pretty hard with his set and I loved it that I could barely sit down. That amazeballs.
That was my eye makeup for the night. I attempted something out of my comfort zone and loved it.
Overall look
Oh I've already reached my first weight loss goal. Goodbye 10kgs! I'm extremely happy but as always, very unsatisfied with my current body results. Still plenty of fat to lose and I've already set two more goals of 5kgs. So, hopefully and eventually I can drop further and look more fit and toned. Anyways maybe next time I'll post up result pictures since I feel so bloated these days. Ciao and be safe~

We rarely have a nice photo together.
Random OOTD
Oh yeah. Chachi has just hit eight months and this is literally her reaction whenever I happen to walk into the room. She can't stop smiling at me. Not sure why but it is the cutest.
