My shopping experience


I’ve been away from this space for so long I’d forgotten what it looks like! Today I want to share my experience ordering from this relatively new online shopping site called Althea. It focuses on Korean beauty products, which is something my brother and I have been super fond of lately.

Now the reason why I decided to purchase from Althea is because the prices of the items in this store are CRAZY cheap compared to other online stores selling the same items. Plus they offer special freebies of full-sized products!


I can’t resist a good deal you guys. (So no, this is NOT sponsored.)

My package came exactly 7 days after I placed my order. That’s 5 working days to be exact, which is fair enough since they did promise a maximum of 8 days to deliver. My order came in a lovely sturdy box and each item inside was bubble wrapped for safety.

The Dubai Dazzle

I just finished my travel diaries over on my other blog about my December trip to the UAE and I feel like doing a little happy dance right now! Seven freaking parts! I prepped for a loooong time but I suppose it’s all worth it. I’m planning to make a magazine-style picture book actually.

Dubai is a place that consistently made me look around in open-mouthed wonder at everything. Perhaps it is the unfamiliarity of it all; the fact that this is my first encounter with a country that isn’t so inclined towards either Asian or Western cultures like I am so used to seeing.

It must be the uniqueness of it all. It is after all my first time being in the desert, and the charms are so very different from anything I’ve ever experienced.

In my mind no words can really describe Dubai, and photographs can only attempt to capture it. You’d have to experience it to fully understand the magic, but a little bit of that magic can leak through images and words too. I hope. Which is why I made such an effort to write my Travel Diaries and edit my travel video. No idea if anybody’s reading it, but anyway I’ll do a little rundown over here of my favourite places alongside my favourite snapshots!

Gimme more pictures! >>

Walkabouts in Hong Kong

Oh boy. It has been a while since I posted on this space! At the start of the year I was thinking about writing yet another resolutions list but then I haven’t exactly fulfilled the one I wrote last year, so most of them are still pretty much the same. I thought it would be nice to for once not try to constrain myself inside a list and just write about the goings-on in my life this year as they happen.

I mean, I do have a list of goals tucked away in my planner but they’re very specific so I don’t imagine they would make sense if shared on this space. I’m pretty sure I’d chronicle them anyway if and when I accomplish them. In short, I’ll just write about whatever the heck I feel like writing.

I wanted to post about a little something my family and I did at the start of the year, and that is fly to Hong Kong to visit my uncle. Among other things. 😉

Hong Kong is the only other country I have been to more than thrice and the thing that strikes me most about it is the insane number of people always walking on the streets. Literally just walking on and on and on and on until the late evening. But don’t take that as complaining. I actually like to do a lot of walking myself.

That’s me with the terribly shaggy hair, walking around in my new favourite pair of boots!
