Those that knows me well knows that I absolutely cringe when it comes to Chinese New Year. While the rest of the world is posting up photos of what they had for reunion dinner, showing off their ang pows and their spanking new clothes, I was lazing around watching silly YouTube videos and reading Facebook updates on my newsfeed.
Truth is, I’m not exactly the kind of person who looks forward to Chinese New Year.
Maybe I was traumatised by the amount of gossip during family gathering and the amount of interrogation of why I did what I did and did not do. Maybe, the appreciation of the festivity and the meaning behind it has not really sunk in after all these years. Maybe it was the aftermath of a disastrous event with ex bf no.1 that happened during Chinese New Year 15 years ago.
But, I must say that it’s good to be back home. To be away from the hustle and bustle of the city, to recharge and to clear my thoughts and to hit the invisible ‘Restart’ button again.
It’s a quiet Chinese New Year, and the days were spent on shopping with my younger cousin at Batu Pahat Mall. Which I enjoyed a lot!
Yay for shopping!
Got this make-up cleaning tissue from Sasa for RM11.92 (after 20% discount).
Bought a complete set of Natio skin care product, also from Sasa for RM69.30 (after 30% discount) I have to say that I totally love this Australian brand! It makes my face feels squeaky clean!
First time trying out KATE by Kanebo. From left: My color pencil eye liner in white (RM15.30, after 10% discount), eyebrow palette (RM41.40, after 10% discount) and concealer (RM34.20, after 10% discount).
I love the scent of a perfume but not really fancy using it. A bottle of 100ml perfume would last me 2-3 years. So when I came across the apple-looking DKNY perfume that smells like heaven, I knew I had to get it but reluctant to fork out RM275 for a 50ml perfume that I know I would not use that often. So I asked the promoter if she can sell me the miniature 7ml perfume and she said OK! But it has to be done ‘under the table’, which is fine with me 😀
In case you are wondering, I paid RM40 for the 7ml perfume. Which is not too bad if you do the math.
Was introduced to this Malaysian brand called Fabiano Ricco by my cousin few years ago (URL:www.fabianoriccoshoes.com) and fell head over heels in love with their super comfortable and affordable flats (the ones in the picture retailing at RM39.90/pair). Unfortunately, there are not many store available in KL.
My favorite purchase has got to be this Bobbie Brown brush set with 24 brushes! Doesn’t matter if it’s a reject from Bobbi Brown, the brushes are amazing and it was initially retailing for RM128 but we got it for RM100 because we bought two 😀
Now I am fully rested, I am all set to go back to KL tomorrow. Needless to say I can’t wait to see 9!
