Parcel Kasih Sayang : Edisi Ramadhan 1437H

PARCEL RAMADHAN

These parcels are my token of love and friendship to these girls. Who are professionals in their own field expanding their career. Who are also Mothers and Wives in their own rights. I hope to do this every year for as long as I live. So they know that they’ll always have someone to lean on in times of despair. And so their children may also get to know an aunt that goes by the name of Minci. 

This year’s goodies include;

My washi’s are here

It was worth the wait and to think that I have a few more packages to receive – I am a happy woman.

My work colleagues seem to be more excited than I am when it comes to receiving a package. In fact, anybody’s package. Perhaps the joy is in the Receiving – although it’s not yours. Ha ha.

This was something I purchased on February 16 2015, off a website called Ali.Express. The little brother of AliBaba. The brainchilds of Jack Ma. The good thing is the items are way way cheap than what most of us can get off the market  – and this is after one includes the shipping fee, if any. As most retailers provide shipping costs for free. The down side is one must be prepared to wait especially if you live in different parts of the world. This package took nearly 3 weeks to arrive. Safe and sound, of course.

A friend told me some wedding dress vendors even buy their dresses from these retailers in bulk and market them as their own. cool huh? or sick?

These washi’s are sold in lots. The store had a 98.7% positive feedback which was very reassuring.They were also very kind to give me a free bookmark. It’s a little cute one but most importantly it’s a FREEBIE. Ha ha.   As of now, my purchases are limited to cute stationaries in fulfilling my hobby to splurge money so called beautify my planners and washi-up the decorative bottles and baskets in the kitchen and bedroom. I still feel a bit insecure to buy big, more costly things through this website since it is based in another country. kelak mun mauk anok urang ya macam susah.. huhu. 

This washi obsession will probably be ‘just a phase’ but I intend to have fun with it until it lasts. After all, it’s just a hobby to help me relax and let go. Now where’s my planner …

MISSHA Perfect cover BB Cream

MISSHA.

Another cosmetic brand originating from South Korea. I have been using its foundation and lip tint ever since I discovered it during my holiday to Seoul in 2013. I’m easily drawn to something new and strange because in Malaysia I’ve only heard of Etude House and Skin Food. I had no idea this brand was.. BIG. Perhaps its because the price tag had the ability to create a big hole in the purse if converted to local currency.Well.. maybe. I don’t know. SK II seems to be doing just fine.

The foundation I used has an SPF42 and for my Malay skin I used NO 23 (Natural Beige).  I think this is the darkest tone available which is considered still ‘light’ for my skin tone. Correct me if I’m wrong – I am not a beauty blogger who does her research. In short, if you’re Ning Baizura or Yunalis Zarai, this product may not be suitable for you. But if you’re Lisa Surihani or Jihan Muse it’s a keeper. If you’re Diana Danielle or Emma Maembong, then do choose a lighter tone. HIhi. kitak faham sik ya.. 

I bought it online through the trusted website Lazada. Com. It was priced at MYR 52 for a tube of 50mls which usually lasts me for a year. The price was with shipping cost included and it arrived in the mail within 3 days. Hurray.

Recently, I came to discover of a product under the MISSHA roof which was rumoured to be able to challenge SKII’s Miracle Essence. It has been around for some time but I’ve only got to know about it for the past 6 months. It is called TIME REVOLUTION – The First Treatment Essence. It has a somewhat similar and exclusive packaging like SKII but I was disappointed that the local MISSHA webstore did not provide an update regarding this product, hence I have to seek for more up-to-date information from its cousins website in Singapore.

I read reviews regarding its magic. This article in particular and also this one by Morgan stands out of course and I was eager to try.

Now all I have to do is wait for another package to arrive straight from KOREA!! AGAIN!!
