How did you started what you are doing:
Since I was a kid I've been drawing doodles, and things like that. I had a BIG phase with paper dress-up dolls. I wanted to make my own. And with hair and make up, honestly it was because of my mom.

 This was my last day so I made sure I got the most out of it. Jai and I went to Camp John Hay to have some milk tea and for me to meet Paolo. Then straight to Session Road after to check what's up with the stalls. Well, I can say that there is not so much difference than that of last year. There are still lots of people around, same stalls like that of last year selling special products from different provinces. There are also food stalls ranging from different food type and budget from Italian, French to affordable Filipino budget meals. Lastly,  I could still say that it can be dubbed as "Shawarma in Bloom." Plenty of Shawarma stalls were more than available again. Look to your sides or just have 10 steps ahead, you will surely smell that a Shawarma store is nearby.
