The Pain That Keeps You Awake

Have you ever cried in bed so bad, wanted to scream your lungs out hoping someone could hear you... You feel so drained, so tired, so dead inside. So helpless, so lost - you wanna talk to someone about it but it's late at night and you don't know who you could turn to without bothering them, so you just pine and hope someone could take the initiative to text you instead... but it doesn't happen.

You wanna resort to social media, to pour your heart out... but you hold back because you're afraid people might judge or even call you attention-seeking.

Does anybody understand this kind of loneliness?

You wish you could be "chill af", you wish you were one of those people who could put your mind at ease and decide not to give a fuck whenever you want to and just go to sleep? Too bad you aren't.

Your eyes start to weigh a ton from all the crying, but your thoughts continue to keep you wide awake. You feel your heart ache with every sigh you let out. 

You start to contemplate life and overthink every little thing that comes to your mind.

At last, you finally doze off as the sun rises... but when you wake up, have to face the world and it's time for you to put on that smile again, this feeling doesn't go away. It stays. It makes you feel empty deep inside. So hurt, so in pain, so damaged.

Isn't it funny how someone out there might actually be going through the same and understand how this feels? Yet we're all alone in this. 

Milly's Eyelash Extensions

Having long, luscious eyelashes is like every girl's #goals today lol - Including mine. Sadly, as a very typical Asian I'm not blessed with them naturally and that's why I'm extremely dependent on eyelash extensions.

If you're looking for something natural, I would recommend the Royal Furlash Extensions (Single Strand Lashes, retails at $98-$108 @ Milly's) in order to achieve thicker and fuller lashes. It feels light on your eyes and falls naturally overtime.

It's widely known as the "single lash extensions" where lashes are placed strand by strand on your natural lashes. This is the one I would usually go for as it's extremely comfortable and helps open up your eyes.

I guess what I love most about this is that it shortens your makeup routine (mascara can be a pain in the ass when it comes to both the application and removal process) + it does not damage your real lashes!

Great for first timers who are looking for something natural and comfy! 

For those who are looking for extremely thick/falsies-like lashes, I would definitely recommend going for Cluster Lashes instead. The process takes a lot faster and cost slightly cheaper. $70-$92 @ Milly's

By the way, if you're afraid of your lashes falling off, the best part would be free touch ups! Milly's provide a 7-day complimentary touch-up for all cluster lashes and unlimited single strand lashes!

ONGOING PROMOS:

  • $68 for 90 strands of ANY Single Lash extensions at Milly's! 

Simply quote "90 STRANDS" when booking your appointment.

  • And specially for you guys, do mention "Naomi" to enjoy $8 off any eyelash of your choice

Let's Make A Change.

Last night I went to party with a couple of my friends and everyone kinda went their separate ways cos of how crowded it was.

At one point, I was walking with two friends and we saw this guy lying on the floor. Dead drunk. I stopped to check if he was okay. And I was startled bcos so many people passed by but nobody actually bothered.

I mean obviously it's nothing new, but I thought to myself what if it was me lying there? How would I feel if I could barely move and nobody bothered?

I shook him to check if he could at least talk. He said "hey are you Naomi" my friends instantly pulled me away and asked me to just leave him alone. He then told me he needs to go home and asked if I could get him back. I said I can't get him home but I can get him a cab. My friends then advised that I leave him for the second time. I said no, let me help him.

I reached out for his phone and asked if he could guide me to one of his friends' number (perhaps a friend he came with) - I called and she didn't pick up. She did eventually and one of my friends gave her a thrashing and questioned what kind of friend she was to leave her friend out there while she had the time of her life.

Somehow I got to his dad and told him about the situation - his dad then agreed to come over to pick him up (he was coming from CCK) I gave him my word that I'll stay by till he comes.

After lots of waiting, causing quite a scene (bcos everyone who walked by thought I had something to do with the poor stranger who was lying against me) and lots of "just leave him la" I got angrier and angrier as it got later bcos she wasn't out yet and more people started coming by - not only were most of them not helping, they were just mocking, laughing and making useless remarks.

Nearly 30mins later, his friend was finally out and not to mention, while i was taking care of him she was mostly indulging in conversations with the people crowding around us. Of course, it was only "normal" if I left when she came but I didn't trust that she would take care of him.

What made me snap at one point was when this random dude told her to "eh just go la why care about him" and I felt like she wanted to - at that moment I couldn't care less of what he was gonna think of me but I responded "What if it was you lying here, feeling helpless? Don't you have the slightest bit of compassion?"

They all got shocked and slowly everyone dispersed.

Let's skip to the part when his dad came and got him. That was when I finally felt safe to leave after about an hour of waiting.

I left feeling perplexed. Why's everyone so selfish today? I know it's no big deal and it's totally normal on a regular party night... right?

It just saddens me cos that was when I concluded from the situation that most people are just terribly curious about things that happen and not because they care.

In this new generation we are dealing with, everyone is developing a more "me first" complex. The questions everyone starts off with will be "how does this make me look?" "How will doing this make me feel?"

And it will get worse as the years go by. It's upsetting. But we can either choose to ignore it and let the human race depreciate, or we could look at the problem and say maybe we can do this in whatever ways we can to make things happen.

I'm going with the second option for sure. What about yourself?

Let's start caring for not only ourselves or the people we love, but random people who could use a helping hand as well.
