the olympic lifestyle

So I've been working the Olympics and it has been crazier as in me being more tired than I have been in my entire life! The madness started on February 11th. It was media day that day, and the official opening was the following day. It's been so busy with people asking the same questions and standing for so many hours. On top of that, Friday and Saturday I had to work at Circa Lounge so I had 6 hours of sleep in total for Friday and Saturday night! It was crazy. Saturday I ended up running into Australian boy and he got back together with his ex and he's moving to Toronto for her! What a shocker.

Sunday ended up being Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year and of course more Olympic madness. I worked in the morning and then the boyfriend came to pick me up. We ended up enjoying the Olympic festivities and went to dinner. He got me Steve Aoki tickets this Wednesday and the heart shaped umbrella I featured on my blog! I'm in love with it and I am ever so stoked! It was all in all a good Valentine's day and made me not hate the day so much! I was exhausted and ended up falling asleep in the ride home. Oops!

Today I was supposed to work til 11.00 pm, but Alexisonfire was performing and people were all pushing so they ended up having to cancel the show and there was a riot so they ended up shutting down the whole area! That means I got to go home early AND I don't have to work tomorrow! Yay for Steve Aoki!!!

Also, everyday I've been going to the same Starbucks and this Australian barista and I always talk and he knows my drink and all! Love it!! <3

the last week before the Olympic break...

The weekend has been absolutely hectic for me. I had my Panasonic training all weekend and also had to go to work at the night club and finish homework assignments. I was a straight ping pong ball, and I seem to have tired myself out. With the Olympics coming, it will be crazy busy as well because of course we are given a two week break from school, but at the same time exams begin when we get back along with papers. Just my luck. Plus I want to fit in a bunch of fun Olympic things! This Thursday is a media event for Panasonic so I will be meeting media from all over the world which I am really excited about. Plus we get free food and everything!

This weekend was fun at the club as I met these two random Australian girls and danced with them all night. I love meeting new people. You can't find very many friendly girls around anymore so it was such a joy.

Also, Valentines day is not too far away and I am celebrating it for the first time.. weird. Ohhh consumerism. <3

sleep with Dita von Teese

Aside from Dita von Teese's sexy shows and stature, she has collaborated with Moschino to make a silk-satin eye mask. It's a limited edition pinup style mask and comes in a matching case. It is $130. Keep in mind, 30% of the proceeds will go to amfAR for HIV and AIDS prevention and research. <3

fabulous fast food

Who would have thought that fast food would be ever so fabulous? That is when it is mixed with a little bit of Herm├Ęs! McFancy is an upmarket temporary McDonald's location launching during Fashion Weeks around the world!! The Big Macs and sundaes might taste the same, but it is always that much better wrapped in the Burberry print!! Oh thing wonders McDonald's does! <3

Taschen collector's edition Valentiono book

I want this $1200 book! It has 738 pages of drawings, magazine shoots, ads, portraits and documentary photographs of Valentino. It has Valentino red on the outside and costs about the same price as a bag by the fashion house. <3

picture of the day: jay-z's girl

Beyonce looks so cute when she's all natural. There's something which I love about this picture but I can't put my finger on it <3

something i saw on facebook

I saw someone's status on facebook that read: "go to urbandictionary.com and type in your first name. post this as your status and the result as the first comment!"

I didn't do it but I was kind of interested to see my results. So I went to the website and typed in my name. The first result came in as:

Melissa is a Greek name.
In Greek, it means "honey bee."
In Persian, it means "red rose."
The feminine version of "Melisseus", legendary "King of Crete."
In mythology, it is the name of a princess of Crete who was changed into a bee after she learned to collect honey.
Melissa is a princess name.

Check out the other ones. They seem quite ridiculous!

Hottest girl in the known universe

likes taking it from behind
wow, you look like melissa


a girl, who takes life as it comes,has relationship issues and falls in love easily.


A very beautiful person inside and out.
Will always make you laugh and give you a hug before you even know you need one!
Can be some what blunt. But at least you know she is truthful. Very sweet and easy to talk to. Loves the colour pink and loves her family more than anything else!
High morals. She sets her own ground.
Melissa has everything in pink!

Aside from the cocky ones and liking it up the ass, some parts are true. Haha, I suggest you do it! It's quite fun! <3

raise a glass for vday with lady gaga

I love this Valentine's combo by Lady Gaga. It's a tee by her along with her heartbeat headphones! It's $100. Too bad the shirt looks out of shape. If you can't read it, it says: raise a glass to mend all the broken hearts of all my wrecked up friends. I like that! <3

i heart coke?

Diet Coke's annual partnership with The Heart Truth has introduced their new limited edition hear design on their cans. It's pretty cute and drinking Coke, Diet to be exact just got trendier. The goal is to increase awareness on heart disease which is the number one killer of women in America. It is meant to inspire a healthy lifestyle! Ahem... I don't think Coke is exactly healthy... but I like the cuteness attempt! Perfect for valentines! <3

The collection will hit department stores in the fall but you can pre-order from their website come Feb. 8. Hmm....I LOVE those cuffs.<3

just for my birthday!

My birthday is in March, and guess who is on the cover of Glamour's March 2010 edition!? Victoria Beckham! She looks so casual for once in a tee and a puppy draped around her. In the spread it really shows her sexy housewife style including doing the dishes, scrubbing the floor, getting groceries etc in her retro bras, panties and bodysuits. She also features her own brand of shorts.

She confesses that, "Absolutely [heels make my feet] hurt, I'm not going to lie. But no pain, no gain, as they say. I don't mind. I will suffer. I don't wear heels every day, but when I'm out, that's how I feel confident."

Love her! <3
