HKTDC DG Studio Showcase @ 1Utama Shopping Centre

6 March 2019

Hi kawanss! It's been awhile since my last blog update and it's been an even longer while since the last time I attended any events. But hey, I've finally crawled out of my little cave (for a few hours) to check out DG Studio's showcase of fun and quirky lifestyle products from Hong Kong - courtesy of HKTDC a.k.a Hong Kong Trade Development Council. Their job is to bring in products and services from Hong Kong to all over the world! So yes, other than TVB dramas, Hong Kong also has a number of homegrown brands carrying fun and innovative lifestyle products that may even come in handy if you're in the midst of gift shopping!

I'm not gonna dilly-dally any further, so if you're interested, do read on to see some of the cute and interesting products that caught my eye!

12 Apostles attempt 2 and Brighton Beach in the winter - Day 3 in Victoria, Australia

7 February 2019

#ThrowbackToSeptember2017
Hello 朋友们(friends)! Happy Chinese New Year!! I'm spending CNY in Hong Kong this year at my uncle's so since I'm having my short sembreak at the same time, I've decided to pick up my long forgotten Australia Travelogue! Without any further ado, here's what I did on my 3rd day at Victoria, Australia(last last september :'D).

By the way, this is part 2 of what I did during my Great Ocean Road-trip so if you have not read part 1, you can read it HERE. Rest of my posts related to this Aussie trip will also be listed at the bottom!

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask Review / Favourite Althea product?

10 January 2019

Hii kawans!! How's your 2019 so far? For today I wanted to squeeze some time out to share with you guys a product I've been really loving over the past month and it's the Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask. I believe that this product has been out for a few months now but I did want to give myself some time to properly test it out before I write my review on it. If you're interested to find out more on Althea's Milk Peel Cream Mask, do keep reading(and I really hope you do because this product is one of my personal favourites from 2018)!

Random collective shopping haul part 2 ver. Althea Korea

3 January 2019

Hey kawans! Happy new year! I actually forgot all about the part 2 of this haul sharing until I went through my photos folder yesterday! If you're a little lost, a while back cough last year cough I did a 'random collective haul' post(you can read it here) and because that post was getting a little lengthy, I decided to separate it into 2 parts, dedicating a 'collective haul post' listing all my collective Althea hauls that have yet to be shared with everyone.

Now before I hop into my haul, a quick disclaimer seemed necessary. A portion of this haul was purchased using a 'birthday ang pao' Althea gave me during my birthday month(yes, I know I'm sharing this many moons late! Please forgive me m(_ _)m!!) However the products I chose to purchase with my birthday shopping credits were entirely up to me so without any further ado, here's a list of products I've hauled from Althea and can't wait to play with!

Quick Talk: Half a semester done/ Missed a deadline / random 3D stuff

27 November 2018

Hey yo! No reviews today and title picture really isn't meant for click-bait purposes but since I couldn't find something to use, I had to anyhow grabbed some yummy pic I took when I was dining at Dotty's Pastry TTDI(so yea, at least I provided info on where to find it😅😁😂)!

As I was saying, hello kawans! I'm currently on Week 9 of the semester (survived half of it yay) and yesterday was my first 'Monday blues' in a very long while because I have officially missed a deadline (usually I'm a day early! Rare occasions would be few hours before time's up!). My school has a policy(?) where the lecturers are told not to grade/critique your work if you've missed the deadline but thank god my lecturer was kind enough to give me an extension😭. I'm glad he gave the extension otherwise I probably won't be able to finish this week's work because it's a continuation of last week's!! Now that I've "caught up" with my "missed deadline" I kinda just wanted to sit down and write a blog post.

Usually right after finishing one assignment, I'd take some time out to write blog. Lately I would just pick up any beauty reviews in my drafts to write/continue writing any long-forgotten travelogues(still not done with last year's Australia lol) but today I felt like writing something related to what I'm currently doing, and because it's one of those "quick but not-so-quick chats", it's gonna be lengthy😅😂! Nonetheless, I hope you guys enjoy reading.

Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway review

21 November 2018

Hello friends! Last month Althea released a new addition to their expanding line of beauty products(as I'm writing this, they've just dropped another! I'm sure you guys could probably already guess what prop I'll be using for the upcoming product shoot *wink wink* hehe). Back to today's star, if you're following Althea's instagram, you've probably already heard of their Petal Velvet Sunaway which is a sunscreen with SPF 50+ PA++++ and I guess you could also say that it's an addition to their 'Petal Velvet series' I've talked about previously!

They sent me their sunscreen last month and after testing it out over the month, I'm here to share my thoughts on it with you guys! I will be talking about how it looks and feels on my skin so I hope it helps you guys to make a decision if you're currently eyeing this on Althea's website :D

Random collective shopping haul part 1

31 October 2018

Hi kawans!! Happy Halloween! If you're looking for a spooky post, unfortunately this isn't one. Instead, this is going to be a 2 part blog post where in this part I'll be talking about a mixture of stuff I hauled over the past few months and the next part will be dedicated to a few purchases of mine from Althea. It'll be too long for me to combine my general haul + Althea haul so I figured that I might as well just break this into a 2 part post.

Before anything else, here's a quick life update! I've recently went back to being a student through an online diploma program. I'll be pretty busy and sleep deprived again. I'm in week 5 and I'm trying my best to meet my assignment deadlines. The school isn't giving me too much work but generally I'd consider myself to be really weak in this particular subject so it's definitely gonna take a while for me to cope with the course work.

Now let's take a look at what are some random goodies/necessities I bought over the past few months!
