The Shopee Haul. Part uno.

Stress (disappointment) + Fatigue + IHaveMoneyInMyBankAccount ..

… led me to a shopping spree online last week. And now I have to pay the price to keep myself put at home waiting for my nonsense stuff to arrive. No jalan2 or poya2 merata-rata. Mesti tunggu posmen. Good thing though because it’s so challenging to bring Ninie. I don’t remember feeling very anxious bringing Ee out when he was a baby. In fact, I could easily drive back to Jenjarom with him strapped in the child carseat without an ounce of fear.

Perhaps it’s the world nowadays. Setan behind the mask of innocent looking faces. I wouldn’t even let a stranger makcik to hold NInie. Not even a short cuddle. To me, EVERYONE IS EVIL. EVERYONE WANTS SOMETHING FROM ME. Then there’s reckless drivers on the road. Insane, young,hormonal driven adults in the malls.  Ohgosh.. I’m a paranoid mom. AM I?

Back to my haul. Initially I had NINE parcels to wait on. I had to cancel one as per requested by the seller because she has an emergency at her kampung and she couldn’t deliver the items. my guess is – the item is out of stock. Tapi takpelah.. got refund. but I really wanted that washing machine rack. it would look neat in the kitchen.

Most of my items are planner related stuff.

Then, there’s MISSHA. I had to get my foundation from Shopee because Hermo was selling it at a retail price of RM79. I  have paid for it cheaper…so hell no am I going to fork out that much money. This is my 5th year using MISSHA and did I tell you it’s TIME REVOLUTION ESSENCE is the bomb?  It cost less than SKII and I think it does an equally good job. I glow without makeup. And I look like I had a shower too. Good for early morning school runs. thank god for wearing a hijab as well. Takdelah mcm hantu mak limah sgt..

And of course I need to buy a white elephant item like a cereal dispenser which was not practical in this country. First, it is not airtight. Secondly, ants always finds a way to share your cereals. And now I have to find a place  to hide it from my husband before he comes back from his Sakura Science Programme in Japan. The ants had a buffet with my healthy cereals. Huhu.

I still have 5 more parcels on the way. And that is part Deux.

 

3 day weekend every week please…

I think every week should have 3 weekend days. The first day of weekend will be camouflaged with you going to a course or something. So it’ll be a somewhat productive weekend. The middle day for you to rest or spend time with the family. Whilst the final day is to pick up on leftover chores and make prep for work.

So today, the 2nd day.. was my liburan day – berpoya2 and have fun. I get to wear fancy makeup and shop for nonsense. We wanted to watch a movie but nothing awesome with the correct timing was on. Most were at times coinciding with the calls of prayer which was kind of inappropriate. Yes, we could have solat at the mall but takpelah.. we rather do it at home. We’re a very cheapskate sedentary couple sometimes. We could only walk certain number of steps. I think we stop at 5000 steps and groan of tiredness.

I bought a new eyeliner from Hermo.Com the other day. It was from a Korean brand, MISSHA, which I have grown accustomed to as I loved their BB Foundation Cream a lot.  I have been using the foundation since 2013 and getting em supplies online. Prior to this particular eyeliner, I have tried from Maybelline but they have discontinued that particular line I liked, plus Datuk Siti Nurhaliza was not their product ambassador anymore.

The MISSHA eyeliner is marvelous. It washes off with water!! Taking ablution with it has never been easier. it costs a fraction of what Sugarbelle cosmetics are selling at right now but the x-factor seems similar. It peels off easily without smudging your complexion. Pretty much like you lekat gam rona itam rah mata and kopek nya.

I also played around with The Sugarbelle Cosmetics Nude Range. Mocha Dream is my new favourite now. The pigments are not that heavy and it reminds me of the Papaya Colour lipstick I used to wear during my medical school days.

Coincidently there was an Elianto Warehouse sale at Dataran Pahlawan today. Im not a fan but my sister is.. So I got her some stuff simply because I love her. 😛

I also got extra face mask and that lippie balm + eye glitter as goodies in my Parcel Kasih Sayang. Can’t wait to decorate the envelopes and post them off.

As of tomorrow, it will be a designated day for grocery shopping and preparing slides for an Organ Donation talk next week. I just hope I am not PM Shift on that particular day. I would be so disappointed. Like, very. And then I tak mau kawan you. 

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!!
