Celebrating Nuffnang’s 6th Birthday Bash With 60’s Makeup And Purple Hair


Happy 6th birthday Nuffnang! I missed out on last year’s birthday bash as I became part of the Nuffnang family just right after the bash so I was extremely excited to be able to make it this time!


It came with a theme! Any party/gathering/outing that is tagged with a theme ups the game for me. I LOVE THEMED PARTIES! That’s why Halloween is my favorite festival! It’s one of the few times of the year where outrageous is legitimate and welcomed.

The theme was Retro 60’s. How fun! I’ve somehow never been part of a retro-themed party before – Shanghai checked, Uniform checked, Pyjamas checked, Color-coded checked… woah so many I can’t remember! Apart from the time where I totally went against the blue-white themed party at NuffnangX’s launch because I forgot there was a theme LOL, I’ve always put in effort to look the part for themed parties. 😀

I decided to have one focal point; the hair was the defining factor. 60’s hair was bold, poofy, wild, and girls loved to accessorize with ribbons and hairbands.


Where else to go get the best effect other than Salon Vim Bugis? This was how I looked prior to the hair teasing, pinning, spraying, styling. Why my cheeks so chubby?? ( O.O )


My usual hairstylist, Weng, was busy so he got Tar to do my hair. I showed Tar some pictures of the look I wanted and Tar did a fantastic job! She said “I like doing this kind of hairstyle because in Thailand the girls like to go out and party and they always go salon to do their hair”. Haha! Tar is from Thailand and it’s my fortune but everyone’s bummer that it was her last day! She left to go make babies. :)


No bumpits were used to create the bump. Just pure teasing and crimping and spraying and styling. Must’ve used up half a can of hairspray. =O


3 Great Things The Bun Has Been Up To Lately. And Fulfillment.

It’s funny when I think back upon the initial damn-I-hope-at-least-my-friends-read-my-makeup-blog days and recall telling myself that I will only do makeup product reviews, makeup tutorials and the sort, and probably not show my entire face at all. That meant that exposing snippets of my life was out of question.

Fast forward to an incredible year later, people tell me Bun Bun Makeup Tips is more than just a blog with tips and tutorials, it is a place where readers have come to trust my advice, my reviews, and it makes my heart swell with gratitude and joy whenever someone says I’ve helped them in one way or another.

Because of the love I’ve received from my readers, and also because I’ve grown more comfortable sharing my private life publicly, you would notice that I’ve had more posts that reflect who I am outside of Bun Bun Makeup Tips. Which is, no difference, really. BAHAHA!!


Posts where you will get to know me better:

  1. Singapore’s First Ever Anti-Drug Campaign Latin-Hip Hop Flashmob
  2. Fun In Phuket! Days 1-3
  3. Fun In Phuket! Days 4 & 5


And then I accomplished THREE fantabulous milestones in my life.


Milestone #1 – Gameshow In Genting

I went to film a variety show called ReelityTV Showdown in which bloggers pit against one another through a series of games. Read about my imaginary gameshow in Genting. Exciting and ridiculous.

This would be the closest you would get to hear my voice. HAHAHA. Not saying it’s anything special, or like a donkey, but at least now you can put a voice to the face.

The first episode out of four is out. Episode two should air… let me check… THIS FRIDAY!

Below are snippets of the conversation between The Boyfriend and myself. See, I’ve become so much more open already! Can even share whatsapp conversations.

Oh yes, we call each other ‘Mode’. Long story. Heh. 😛
