Paper Eyelashes

Inspired by the art of Chinese paper cutting, these delicately pretty and intricately cut paper eyelashes are so utterly exquisite. They come in a really neat little box with a display window and can be reused over and over again and they also make a fabulous and surprising gift and are just plain fun to wear. The designs come steeped in Chinese symbolic meaning with "Deer and Butterfly" meaning "free, sensitive and delicate" (photo above). You receive one pair that can be used as is or cut up and used. Use with regular eyelash glue. By Paperself. £12.50. Kindly check out website http://www.nonesuchthings.com/.


Yesterday, PKR lawyers (i.e. Fadiah Nadwa Fikri, N. Surendran, Latheefa Koya and Subang MP Sivarasa Rasiah) demanded that high-ranking police officers as well as those in the home ministry who had sanctioned the violent conduct of the police against Bersih 2.0 supporters be charged in court.

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders have also accused the police of “waging war” on those who gathered to call for free and fair elections, citing a Bar Council report claiming that police had “arbitrarily, indiscriminately and excessively” fired from water cannons and launched tear gas canisters at close range and at eye-level at demonstrators.

I don’t think any of us is so na├»ve as to believe that action will be taken but this is a first step in demanding accountability from those in power who made decisions that are contrary to the public’s interests.
