What I Hate/Love About Living In Malaysia

by evilnymphstuff

Hey everyone!!! If you were wondering, no my Malaysian plane didn’t crash!

I just took my time to settle and adapt to the new environment… and finish all the paperwork concerning the fact that I’m an international student.

And now I’m free until Wednesday! (when classes will started)

So, the last time I was in Malaysia, I was there as a tourist, but upon arriving last week I realised that being a tourist and being a temporary resident are entirely different! Obviously, the latter is the hardest one. Thus, instead of 10 Awesome Things I did in Malaysia (my 2 year old post), here’s a more balanced post about things I love but also things I actually don’t like at all here (yes I was so stunned that such a list could even exist for Malaysia!).

Since I like to be optimistic, I’ll start with the ‘bad news’ first ;)

WHAT I HATE ABOUT LIVING IN MALAYSIA

1. THE CLIMATE!

It is way too hot and way too dry, and if you are easily dehydrated like me… it will be really hard to adapt to that suffocating air that I have to breathe everyday when I’m not in an air-conditioned room. I actually had a lot of difficulty breathing properly for the first few days (with some level of dizziness as well) and it scared me, because I thought I would never be able to go out, eat out in the streets where everything is cheaper (which is awesome for a student like me with a budget) and better in taste (if you love local food like me)! However after one week… I feel much better (no more respiratory problems so far) and I think in one month I’ll be even more at ease going outside.

Tip: drink a lot of water!!! And I also leave my window open especially at night to let air flow in and out… (unfortunately my air-con usage is limited where I live at the moment so…)

Merry Halloween! | Edition 2013

by evilnymphstuff

Of course, An Evil Nymph never misses Halloween, and you’ve been a follower since I started this blog, you are well aware that although I don’t get to properly celebrate Halloween because it is not a tradition or even an event in my country, Mauritius, I always find something Halloween-y to do.

In 2011, on the first Halloween I ever celebrated on this blog, I dressed up as a witch/druid/Wiccan girl and in 2012, I simply wore black and orange, the orange part being a DIY ‘An Evil Nymph’ tank top, and now in 2013 I’m going to dress up as a modern medieval lady/princess! As such:

In fact I have to go out today because I’m being issued my national ID card – so I’m officially an adult as from today ;) And it’s luckily fallen on Halloween’s day!

Because of exams, I might not be blogging for the next few months – unless I feel like making exceptions.

But I’m not gone :)

Stay positive, dear readers!

Are These Sparky & Trendy Shamballa Bracelets For The Rich Folks Only? [Guest Post]

by evilnymphstuff

Shamballa bracelets have become the talk of the town. Ever since they were found in the hands of celebrities, people have become curious to learn more about the beautiful Shamballa bracelets. These intricately crafted bracelets are elegant and their colors are stunning.

 

shamballa bracelets

Indian and Tibetan Buddhists believe that a kingdom called Shamballa is in the Himalayan valleys and it is not easily accessible. Only those who aspire to reach glorifying heights in spiritualism are considered eligible to access the mythical kingdom. The kingdom overflows with harmony, love, peace and enlightenment. Inspired by the kingdom, Shamballa bracelets were born. They are exclusive, they are special, and they are trendy and are they only for the rich?

On Blog Awards & Sharing Links Love…

by evilnymphstuff

Have any of you noticed that I missed the Sites Of The Month: October 2012? Usually, at the end of each month I do a sharing-only post where I link every web pages and websites that caught my attention during the month, so that perhaps some of you may find them helpful. But this end of October and beginning of November have been a storm of events for me, and I’m sorry if ever you were waiting for it.

In the last Sites Of The Month posts, I have developed a habit of listing all the blog awards I receive during the month and then instead of following the rules exactly, like the 7 random facts about me I have to list, I change it by giving away a lot of facts about me, yet through my monthly list of favourite links! That’s how I started to merge the ‘Sites of the month’ thing with the listing of blog awards.

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do today.

I feel that it’s important to stop in your tracks for a while, and be grateful for what you received, what you gained along the journey, although you have not completed it yet, and also share it to the world.

So today, I thank:

1. Seasons of Insanity who awarded me with the Reader Appreciation Award:

This Is Halloween! [or The Happy Nightmare Before Christmas]

by evilnymphstuff

Although here in Mauritius we don’t officially celebrate Halloween, or Samhain’s Eve, whatever you call it, many of us, especially teenagers, always find a way to make this 31 October a special day, even despite having exams on the next day.

Yes, many of us were just stuck at home with revision work… but fortunately? I had tuition in the afternoon. This is when my friends and I decided to wear orange and black and cry out ‘TRICK OR TREAT’ when the teacher would come into class.

Doesn’t mean that we got sweets in the end.

But it was just so fun.

The Fashion Organizer

by evilnymphstuff

It’s been a long time since I haven’t been posting on fashion, you know so here we are, with a new crazy, and hopeful helpful, post of mine…

I don’t follow the actual trends or whatever although I love to watch and read about fashion. It’s fun. Makes my eyes water ;) I usually have my own style and recently, I’ve been a little more conscious of what I wear, so I’ve started to consciously build my own fashion trends – of course, inspired by other trends. All right, I’ve been thinking about it for a while, if you’ve read my last fashion posts (see in the categories in the right sidebar!), but I’ve never really sort of organized my clothes, keep records of outfits and so on.

But now I am.

This was one of my very first outfits to become ‘digital’, I mean which I took a photo – last year.

What if I’m not Skinny and Do Not Have The Height of a Super Model?

by evilnymphstuff

So what if I’m not skinny and do not have the height of a super model? [Sorry for the long title by the way]

It isn’t supposed to matter. We know it doesn’t matter. But do clothing retailers and magazines help us to think so?

No. Not at all.

In about two weeks I’m going to a Gala Show at night and my friends and I were talking about what to wear. A dress, most probably. But it’s so hard to find one at your right size, style and personality. Most of the chic clothing I see in shops are stereotyped: they seem to be only reserved for skinny and very tall girls. And what about the rest? Yes there’s a brand for pregnant women. Pregnant women! What about the others then? Those who are not too big or too skinny but still have to hide a belly? Those whose height is under average?

In truth, ladies, whatever be the shape of your body, it’s always hard to find the perfect – at least suitable – dress.

Because I don’t have much experience in fashion, I’m only going to give you some tips when choosing a dress, for those who are like me: short and a little fat in the middle :P

Girls, prepare your observant eyes and untiring feet… because the search will be difficult.

The Right Dress

If you wish to hide your excess belly fats, you should pick up an empire line dress, which means that the belt of the dress should be just under your breasts:

♥Fashion and Fiction♥

by evilnymphstuff

How can we as writers combined the two? Keep reading!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but on the sidebar there’s a Polyvore widget. What’s Polyvore? It’s a website for those who like to virtually create their own fashion trends and styles, who make up outfits or simply express themselves through combining images to form a unique masterpiece.

I’ve been on Polyvore for quite a long time but it was only a few days earlier that I really got into it. You can check out my profile HERE (and add me if you have an account too ^^ if you wish!). I got the idea from the dragon-lover and writer Shéa MacLeod: to make up my own character’s outfits! (check out MacLeod’s Polyvore too!)

And this is just so so fun!

For example I did 3 outfits for my protagonist who is Elaine Graith – the daemon girl stuck in Heaven:

Girls’ Blouses: Adding some styles…

by evilnymphstuff

I’m a great fan of blouses with check designs like this:

The style of it is awesome enough to just wear it with anything.

But with some imagination…

There is even part 2…

I wanted to try personalizing my t-shirts too, therefore I took 2 old (yes old in case something goes wrong :P) t-shirts and the results:

Black and Chic

by evilnymphstuff

Hey guys! This will be a short post. I’d just want to update and add some more spice to the Beauty & Fashion category.

Today I’m going to show you two of my favourite outfits I like to wear especially when going out at night. I like to wear black as it is more elegant and makes you appear thinner from a visual perspective :)

PS: I’m not Gothic although many people might think so LOL! Just that Goth is greatly part of my own original style :D

Alright, so Outfit No.1
