Some of you who liked my facebook page may have seen my HK travels album here and saw that HK is indeed a shopping city LOL.  the hubby and i were there for three days and half.  we did the nathan road shopping thing.

and naturally, since my current addiction is Laneige, i came home with a few goodies from that brand.  full sized items are cheaper in Manila.  but the sample sizes are found in HK and are for sale O_o.  the water sleeping pack was about 800+ on the street, i just didn’t get it since at the time i haven’t really tried it, and i already have several sample size of the water sleeping pack for me to try.  oh yeah, next to bonjour and the body shop, laneige stores were abound.

apart from sasa, that sold samples from guerlain to estee lauder to elizabeth arden, colour mix was a store i visited in two locations.  they carried lioele, skin79, the face shop and this taiwanese brand called shills.

i got these at sasa.  ah the famous dollywink.  kala ko naman kung ano, maganda pa packaging ng ever b at careline or halos pareho lang.

In Macau though, at the Venetian, i found this boutique, phew! one boutique to conquer all!  It’s a Korean cosmetics shop!  oo may Laneige din dyan, samwerz.  spotted, etude house and tony moly!

 and a section dedicated to that slave management label called sment, phfft.  yep, the sales girl said that they were commissioned by sment to sell their original and official SMEnt merch.  (sment is the label that manages super kpop groups like super junior, tvxq, shinee, and girls generation, not to mention kpop mainstay BoA). so here below are the uber expensive mugs, clear file folders, and other office supplies with our favorite kpop idols.

From that store i came away with my missha snail cream set and a holika holika tinted lip balm/gloss.  from that purchase they gave me their sweetmay makeup case and a face cream/essence in a sachet. 

so yeah, sa Macau yung may libre.  so it really is a Korean thing to give away freebies with purchase.  the Laneige store in Harbour city mall didn’t give didleee squat, hay, it was about 500 bucks cheaper at Laneige harbour city mall branch but well, from the point of view of a pinoy, pupunta  ka pa ng hk para makatipid ng 500, eh di well, sa shangri la na lang or trinoma (moa or robinson’s place) for your laneige fix may libre ka pang kung ano anong anik anik, sa hk wala!

back in Hong Kong.  theBenj found Sino center for me, this hole in the wall vira mall type of mall (circa 1980’s as in before the fire vira mall).  this is the place to buy kpop official and unofficial merch.  the big bang stuff is official while the leader stuff well, fanmade.  

From Page One i got a catalogue mag.  these asian magazines often include goodies with the mag.  the tweens often by the mag for the goodies.  this was the last copy of this Arashi mag.  and this mag made miss my sister in Asian-pop madness, Dek.  ayan nakunan ko na ng picture.  the bag stays but once i’ve taken photo’s of jun, i’ll ship the mag off to you na.  i used that bag at the office xmas party lmao!

Along Nathan road, there are side streets, one of them is Shun Yee street and on one corner there is camille road.  at that area i found this st francis/vira mall type of boutique (so no fitting allowed) where the prices of the clothes are half the price compared to most of the clothes i’ve seen so far through the many malls along nathan road.  the name of the store is in fashion.

for the office i got a few blouses.

a dress for date night ^_^

ahhh well y’all know i can’t keep away for the corally-peachy blouses.

and a pair of hose(s)

a nice blouse for the Christmas party.

which i wore at the Christmas party.

below is the black vest thing.

all the blouses didn’t go over 450 O_o where as compared to the malls, both in HK and in Manila, blouses of such designs would go for double those prices. hahaha i am proud to say, including the boots from naf naf, my entire outfit for the Christmas party was roughly about PhP1200 O_0 oo, HKD50 (around 300peTot) lang yung leggings with felt type of fabric the blouse was only HKD49 (around 280petoTs) so around PhP500 blouse and pants na.  then the naf naf boots were on half off sale last oct ba yun, so asa 700 or less. hahaha.  sorry peeps, i’d rather spend on skin care than on clothes.  though that may change as well. but i’m far from posting outfits of the day, but who knows, there’s a korean owned store in greenhills with roughly the same prices as this in fashion shop in HK 


except for the holiday edition lip duo and blush from laneige, the items above are Christmas + 8th year anniv gifts to me from the hubby.  so to the judgmental people out there, eh well, grind your teeth for all i care. 

hahahaha may ganon? la lang each time i post a haul vid on my youtube channel, as in each time, i have a thumbs down. like i said grind your teeth hahaha


are we traveling again soon? maybe, i’m hoping to catch leader in Sg, or once big bang releases their new album in 2012, and when they tour, i’m hoping to catch them in BKK or Sg (historically, they have not visited HK, but who knows..)

i kinda liked the weather in HK it was winter but the temps were only around 16 degrees.  it was Macau that was bitingly cold at 11 degrees with WIND.  i loved the fact that my makeup didn’t melt of regardless of the long walks hahaha.  i hardly blotted the oils off my nose!

ahhhh til we meet again.  nga pala HINDI KO NAHANAP ANG REVLON LIP BUTTER anywhere.  and halos ka presyo lang ng pinas ang revlon photoready O_o at mas ok ang duty free ng changi airport compared sa hk hayz hehehe marami na daw ako nabili sabi ni Lord hahaha.

til next time folks 😉


it’s only August 1 and already i miss July. for months starting may i waited for july super excited to see

some of you who breeze through my blog may notice that i have some big bang, 2ne1, and ss501 (specially kim hyun joong) and rain related purchase.  they’re the people i follow in the kpop industry,  there was a big opportunity for me to catch a double whammy.  to watch performances from both 2ne1 and big bang so i took it. thanks to hero Tania for the invite.  so finally, i had a reason to go to Singapore and it was a wonderful cherry on top that my man loves to travel that naturally, he’d go with me, like he did last year for bangkok (that time for ss501’s last concert).  ayan tuloy, we’re both really infatuated with Singapore and thinking of…eh alam nyo na yun.

Sandara truly is very pretty in real life.  awww she’s so slender!  while the other 3 where shall we say on the plump side? LOL may baby fat pa, ang cute!

sure Dara didn’t sing in or out like she did in araneta, but that’s alright, i got to see their sunbae’s big bang and then some!
more of 2ne1

This kid below is SeungRi, he hosted a family outing episode and at the time, the guest was kim hyun joong.  the kid below is the boy responsible why i liked big bang to begin with.  and i’m glad i like them.  they have a wonderful mix of rnb and slight hip hop.  they way these koreans have melded American pop culture into their own is just simply amazing and at such at a very accelerated rate!  EEMEA, Canada, and South america and of course even perez hilton loves big bang!

there was a familiar group there, too.  i’ve seen UKISS, 4 times already including last july’s show LOL.  i’m sorry, let me just say it right now, the two new guys that replaced xander and kibum can’t sing well live.  

this new song by ukiss i really really like, and to be honest, that night was the first time i heard it.  but truth be told, the song and the melody just made me miss xander and kibum more.  and yes, that’s me yelling, wow dongho, what the hell is that!

but it was awesome seeing:


regardless what moe twister says about this group, they still bring fond memories (to which i will concentrate on) from last 2010.
LOL like this guy here, i, too, went to their showcase last year at the picc!  that’s FT Island leader, who’s now so buff!

Bom! i naooo haz bangz like you!

and here we are full of buzz after seeing 4 of the 5 big bang members!

farewell july, farewell Singapore, thank you, i miss you so much

hope to see you again, and soon.
can you just imagine? how much i work to be able to see these pretties in real life.  but you know? thanks to kpop? i have amazing new friends from triple s philippines and other fandoms like big bang, i got to pick up again and continue a wonderful friendship with Tania and Dek, and thanks to kpop i’m still into makeup that led me to meet wonderful ladies online.  
i got to see live

this is the original awesome vid
