[Online Shopping]

This was quite sometime ago already.

Ever since my last online shopping on Gmarket, I am very much fascinated with the whole "online shopping" idea. The moment when receiving my parcel, it was so excited, meanwhile, I just can't wait to open it up and see what's inside. It feels like receiving presents/gifts, but only you are the one who bought yourself a present/gift.

It was approaching my birthday. This year, I wish to buy myself some accessories, those good quality ones which can be kept long, but within my affordability (plus, I wasn't earning income at the moment). So, something simple yet quality. Where to get? What to buy?

Then I thought of this online shopping website, I came across few product advertisements, and I remembered it sells fancy accessories. So, I gave it a shot.

The website is very organized. To get the best search results, utilize the filter tool.
I want accessories on my hand. Maybe a bracelet. I think rose gold is a very femine and fancy color. Better to be RM100 or below.
Pop! Pop! Pop! Put all these details in, and I get my customized-filtered search results.

At the end, I found myself a piece which satisfied my above requisitions.

Filling up all the billing details, the days of waiting started. Fortunately, offers free sms-notification on the delivery status. It nudges me when my parcel sets off for dispatch. From there on, I can keep track from time to time.

Since it was dispatched from Peninsular Malaysia, it took nearly 2 weeks to reach my place. Guess should be the standard dispatch duration. Thank God, my parcels reached safely! ^^

this is how my first parcel looks like

"Unboxing" shot
Birthday presents from me

**Side note: I bought a watch as well, but the unboxing shots I captured were blur, so skip the posting part. Move on...

Since the two items were bought from different suppliers, items were sent separately without extra charges. First, I received the bracelet, then few days later, came the watch.

I am very satisfied with the quality of the goods and the service. To show my appreciation and support to the website, I submitted my product reviews afterwards. 

**Side note: I read a lot of reviews before purchasing online. I really appreciate people who wrote their reviews. That's why I am doing the same thing as well. :)

Overall, it was a really satisfied and pleasing experience shopping online with

Hello everyone🙋

Wassup. Just came back from a short year end family trip.

Though I really wish to share this experience right now right here, but sadly I don't have much time to write lately😿

In fact, there are lots of updates in my recent life which I've yet to write and make my record here..

Anyway. To give you a glimpse of the genre of my yet-to-write topics, it's about work, online shopping, holiday trips and upcoming plans.

Whoots. So much to say yet due to time constrain.. urgh

It's 10:59PM here now. Time for me to get into the arms of my bed. Chop chop. Goodnight!😴

[Review] Tsubaki Damage Care Shampoo + Dove Volume Nourishment Conditioner

Product #1
Name: Tsubaki Damage Care Shampoo 

Hair type: For dry and damage hair.

Price: RM15~20

Review: Delegate and pleasant scent. Gives a soft and gentle touch on the hair while cleanses away the oil and dirt. Worth the try. However, I would only purchase this during promotion sale season heh :D 

Japan product. Available at Watson.

Product #2
Name: Dove Volume Nourishment Conditioner

Price: RM8~15

Review: This product is heavily advertised on the new oxyfusion technology which suppose to give a bouncy-er and volume-r hair-look. First, it doesn't give an oily-effect EVEN I left it on my hair (just like those leave-on hair treatment). Good thing. BUT, this may because my hair is already HIGHLY DAMAGED and needs lots of nourishment (may or may not apply to your case). Technically, I think it has achieved it's purpose, as a conditioner. Worth the try.

p/s: this is my recent hair-wash combination :D

October 16, 2015

October 16

So my days of enjoying my parents' money has begun. (Ops, or should I say, the days of being unemployed) :/

First, I started with helping in minor chores. Then playing mahjong with grandma and ma. And dad asks to assist with some admin works. ... life couldn't be more simpler than this.

What bothers me is what am I going to do in the future. What's next? This question keeps popping in my head. What do I want to achieve in my life? What I want to become as? I can't just live like that. No. I must have a plan. A holistic plan.

What I am afraid the most currently? The loss of momentum in life. The urge of wanting to achieve something must not fade away. Keep it going. This is how I know I'm alive.

I've caught you in another serious thought again. Ha! :D Anyways.

To end this, lemme share the photo of the day : "[Caption] Can I eat it now?"  (Caught in red-handed)

[Tutorial] Basic Eye Make-Up #1

Today I'm gonna show you how to do a basic eye make-up :)
This is a routine which I almost do it everyday, for almost every occasion, simply because it is easy yet not failing to look professional.

Here we go :D

So I'm going to use these two products (as shown below) for this tutorial:
KATE Brown Shade Eyes BR-2 & Etude House Oh~ M' Eye Line 03 Oh~ My Brown

Tip #1 :: Always apply eye shadow from the lightest shade to the darkest shade :: Reason is the same as painting water color ::

So let's start from the lightest color we've got here.. the milky-silver.
As this is the lightest color, we shall use it for the base color.
Since I need to apply to a larger skin area, I'm going to use the larger end of the eye-brush.
Then, from one end to another, apply the shade evenly with the eye-brush (as shown below).

You might not see difference at this step as this color is too light; however, you can see the effect as a whole later on :)

Then we shall move on to our second shade... the bronze.
Now the area I'm covering is a smaller half-sphere than the previous, and I'm going to use the smaller end of the eye-brush.

Tip #2 :: Use different sides of the eye-brush to avoid smudges in the shade pallet ::

Same technique, brush it from one end to another evenly (as shown below).

As you can see, the upper-limit of my second half-sphere is lower than the first one, leaving an area which only has the milky-silver shade. That's the area which gives you eyes glitter-looks *^^*

And the bronze-shaded area will gives a layered-effect to the eye make-up, which also gives you a deeper eye-look.

Now let's move on to the third shade... dark brown.
With the same technique shown above, I will apply the dark brown shade in a smaller half-sphere area just right above my eyelashes.

Since I have single-eyelid, I will need to make sure that the dark brown shade can be seen even if my eyes are open. Thence, I need to apply a larger area YET not overlapping too much of the bronze shade.

If you are not sure, try apply this shade with open eyes by outlining the upper limit, and fill in the blank area :D

Well, if possible, try to make these three shades to have equal exposed area. You may need a couple of practices in order to get the perfect ratios for your eyes (since everyone is born different :D)


OKAY, at this point of time, you should get the effect like this (shown below):

As you can see, only the dark brown is most visible actually. So, sometimes I would just apply the dark brown shade for casual outings :)
However, when I want a more glamorous look, then I will apply all three of them. Easy as that ;)
You can mix and match them anyway you want!

Whew, that took me quite some time to explain...
Now let me show you the easiest way to do a lower eye make-up :D

Simply just outline your eye below with the dark brown shade (as shown below).
Keep it as thin as a line as possible, because you don't want to look like a panda, right?

ONE more step to go.

Personally, I will prefer to add a touch of liquid eyeliner to give a more intense look.
Here I'm gonna show you the result of using a brown liquid eyeliner. You can use a black one thou.
Can you spot the THIN touch of liquid eyeliner? Especially at the corner end of my eye?
That's what I mean by OUTLINING :)
Well, you can draw a thicker eyeliner according to your mood!
Nahh, I'm good with this for now :D

Tip #3 :: Brown liquid eyeliner gives a softer touch and natural look than black liquid eyeliner ::

So here is the final result of our tutorial today :D

                                           Before                                                     After

Now I'm done with the talking and writing, and here's your turn!
How do you find this tutorial? Feel free to drop me comments :)

[Review] KATE Brown Shade Eyes BR-2

Product: KATE Brown Shade Eyes BR-2

Color of shades: Milky-silver, bronze, dark-brown and nude-brown.

Price: Around RM49 ~ RM59

Review: I really love the fact that the eye-shadow won't wear off easily. The colors of shades are close to our skin color, so the effect looks very natural. Hence, it can be a daily-wear. In fact, I believe brown shades are one of the MUST HAVE MAKE-UP ITEMS as it comes in very handy in daily make-ups, be it work-on or work-off occasions.

Japan product. Available at KATE specialized-counter, Guardian and local departmental stores.

**Picture-tutorial is available here.

Name: My Beauty Diary 我的美丽日记 - Apple Polyphenol Mask 苹果多酚面膜

Price range: Around RM4

Functions: Oil control, pore constringing

Review: The pleasant smell of apple juice can be found once the packet was opened. The effect was quite instant whereby I can feel my skin tighter on the next day. Usually my face will get a bit oily when I get up in the morning, but I don't feel it on the next morning after applying it.

Taiwan product. Available at 7-eleven (Taiwan) and Guardian (Malaysia) outlet.

[Review] Innisfree - it's real squeeze mask Aloe

Name: Innisfree - Aloe

Price range: Around RM4

Functions: Moisturizing, water-boost

Review: Once I opened the packet, I can smell a light yet pleasant plant scent. Guess this is the trademark of Innisfree - the scent of nature. It is very soothing. I would say it could be perfect after a 
long day under the sun. When it comes to facial masks, I would highly recommend Innisfree to my friends and family.

Available at Innisfree outlets.

[Review] Mentholatum Maxilip

Product: Mentholatum Maxilip

Function: Lip care, moisturizing. Good for crack-lips.

Color: None.

Price range: Around RM18.90

Review: I love this product straight on-the-spot! It serves as lip balm and gives long lasting lip moisturizing. I was having severe crack-lip lately, and once I start applying this, I could observe the result within hours. Now my crack-lip has improved alot. No more dried lip skin peeling off :DD

[Review] My Scheming 我的心机 Skin Clarifying Astringent Mask

Name: My Scheming 我的心机 Skin Clarifying Astringent Mask

Price: RM3 - RM5

Function: Skin purifying

Review: The mask has two layers. Peel out the plastic layer with caution to retrieve the thin layer which made of silk. To take note, this silk layer is super thin that it can be so easily tear off with a slight force. I still failed to get a perfect complete mask after two attempts. Other than that, nothing much to comment.

Taiwan product.

[Review] Innisfree - it's real squeeze mask Rose

Name: Innisfree Smooth and Shine Rose Paper Mask

Price: RM3 - RM5

Functions: Giving you a smooth and shine face

It is widely renowned that Innisfree has the best paper masks at this price range. It is a Korean-brand, so it pretty much explains why the size of the mask best suits Asians. Its relatively smaller in size, but it fits perfectly with less excessive parts and overlapping.
In terms of this particular paper mask, the Rose scent is fairly pleasant. Although I am not really a rose-goer, I find myself quite enjoy the scent of this mask.

Available at all Innisfree outlets.

[Review] B Travel Angelica Arcangelica Mask Paris

Name: B Travel Angelica Arcangelica Mask - Paris

Price range: RM4 - RM6

Functions: For tired skin. Brightening.

Review: The texture of the mask is so thin that it lands on your face tightly and fits almost all kinds of faces, be it round or square. Basically that's the best part I love about this mask.

Available at SaSa.

BTS - 핸드폰좀 꺼줄래 (Can You Turn Off Your Phone)

From BTS' Album "Dark&Wild".

First upload in da new year 2015 ^^ Please do cherish the time you spend with your friends/family. Don't take selca of yourself or with your meals, take it together with your friends! Most of all, please turn off your phone ma friend ;)

Background vocals: BTS

CR: Big Hit Entertainment, BTS, Pdogg and all the right owners.
All right reserved. I make no profit of this fan-made cover.

["Can You Turn Off Your Phone" English Lyrics Translation]

#Would you turn off your cellphone
Although everyone’s ‘smart’
We’re gradually becoming dumber
Would you turn off your cellphone
Look at my face and send a mention
I don’t need a ‘LIKE’

You said you’re going to the bathroom through your phone
That's somewhat sense of humor and you slightly laugh about it
I don’t find it funny at all
You, who I saw in months
How come you gained popularity suddenly?
Did you win the lottery?

What do you mean the lottery? Focus yourself!
You changed to a new phone, my friend
This is the information age, as you probably know
Over half of citizens of Republic of Korea are the smart 21st century
Talking while looking at each other’s faces is a story that happened a long time ago

Long time no see, so why are we fighting like this again
Phone? Let's have a meal first
"Do you have a girlfriend?"
"Your new phone is regrettable."
"I don’t want to be like Youngsoo who went to the army.."
Please come true, magic
"Where do you want to go?" "Ah, I want to go there."
"I think this place is the best hotspot."
"What are we going to do after eating? Let’s not go to the boring PC room."
No, wait, when someone's talking, would you please just...

# Chorus 1

*You unlock it with a slide, you unlock it with a slide
I hated it your (‘tak’)
I hated it your (‘shoong’)
You unlock it with a slide, you unlock it with a slide
Click it, your (snap snap)
Click it, your (snap)

Do you eat food with you eyes?
Could you not take pictures like some childish girls?
I’m losing my appetite
You’re probably busy updating Facebook or Tweeting again
Life is 3D
Tweet at me while looking at my face

Tweet tweet, you tap tap and Kekek
Rice are dropping out and hitting your phone hundred times
That's right, please focus yourself, can you hear me
While your phone can be charged when it is out of battery, do you think our friendship can be recharged?

Would you turn off your cellphone
Or put it in your pocket
Although recently everyone has become smart and the generation has become better, it’s two times faster
I miss it sometimes, the times where we would look at each other’s faces and share a conversation
Although our amount of conversing has increasing,
there’s only a loud silence between us

# Chorus 1

Messages and selcas, I don’t need it all
Neither do I care of cellphones or food, I came to see you
This really isn’t right
What kind of relationship are we having?
Even just a simple laugh, we were truly happy after all

#Chorus 1

*Chorus 2
