[edited 12 Jul 2012: I had just added some more pictures and details of the stuffs I 'd bought! ^^v~]
First stop was Shibuya. Di quoted from her bro-in-law that if you didn't take a photo of the iconic spot of the place, means you never went there before. And so~~~ we MUST take this statue of Hachiko (忠犬ハチ公像) to prove that we were here! hahahx~
Sept - Oct 2011: Hong Kong ~ SG Massive Hauls + swatches (Lavshuca, NARS, Shu Uemura, Lancester, Seche etc..)
During September, I went Zhuhai, Macau, Hong Kong for work. At very short hours I grabbed alot of stuffs from the shelves without even looking at them! Hahax.. just kidding^^" But yah, I almost swiped off products from shelves cos I don't have much time to even think if I should buy them due to the busy schedule and itinerary!
Finally, I get my hands on MORE Lavshuca lippies (YIPPE YEAH YEAH!) and also the NARS Orgasm Blush which my bro couldn't managed to buy during his Thailand trip! \^o^/~

Well, before I go on with my Hauls.. I just want to tell everyone that I'd signed up 1 dancing workshop happened just earlier this month. I guess besides my primary school times which I took part in a one time stage hawaii dancing performance wearing straw skirts and holding pongpongs, this should be the 2nd time in my life learning how to dance.
I love listening pop, rock, R&B music and recently everyone's going gaga over (besides Lady Gaga)... its none other than KPOP, known as Korean Pop.
And what's the Hu and the HA about this dance workshop? It's about SNSD RUN DEVIL RUN Dance workshop!!!
If you hadn't seen how they dance, play the following Vid!!
<object height="385" width="640" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/q_gfD3nvh-8?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"> <param name="data" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/q_gfD3nvh-8?fs=1&hl=en_US" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /> <param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/q_gfD3nvh-8?fs=1&hl=en_US" /> <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /> </object>
This dance step is NOT EASY OKKKKkkkk.. (for a 2nd timer like me) At least I find that SNSD "Oh!" even though appears difficult, still is easier than Run Devil Run! And of course, GEE! is the easiest. Heh.. Why can't they teach something simpler.. =_=
Any hoo, Let's take a look at the studio @ my HQ... The trainer was invited to our HQ Dance studio to teach a bunch of lazy bums employees like us.. And dancing is for ANY AGE! =p (Arrows: THat's mi!)
After 2 hours of dancing, we managed to complete first half of the song.
It suppose to be a 8 weeks dance course to complete the whole song with perfect dance steps, but we are no pros so we just anyhow~ complete it within 1 workshop.
Apparently I find that the workshop "NO SWEAT!" (Plus the studio was air-conditioned)...
.....until the 3rd day, my muscles ached like nobody business!!
Phew~~ Dancing sure can kill some calories, stretch some stiff muscles and improve my blood circulation!!
I soooo wanting to join Hip hop dance but my work doesn't allow me to have more personal time for my interests.
Darn, work sure SUX big time!
Here, was my OOTD during the dance workshop, but I was wearing trackpants earlier before I changed to jeans. The pants are super long that I kept stepping on the ends and tripping myself over. ^_^"
Oh ya, the dance trainer is from Danz People, see their FB here! The trainer is sooo sooo cute & hilarious! I didn't catch her name though. At first sight, I tot I saw Sara... But I didn't wear specs, so the similarity percentage might be only 1% =p~
Now, ON with DA HAULS!!~
MAC Haul: Superslick Liquid Eye Liners in Gold & Silver!
Many many Thanks again to Kim for helping me purchase at DFS when she went to Changmai! I spent $66 overall.. So, I did saved a few dollars did I? o_O
But i hadn't include registered mail yet.. hhahax~
Topshop Lipstick: in Desert: $19
ZEA Plumper Lip Stick in Rose Vintage: $13.90
ZEA Plumper Lip Gloss: $9.90
One swatch of Desert, I immediately want it! It reminds me of MAC freckletone lipstick which I dropped it into the toilet bowl.. u_U" However Topshop lipstick is very dry... while ZEA's very moisturising! Its a good buy!
In my previous collective haul, I bought a Ritzo Color Guard Hair Spray and the nozzle phailed on me.. TWICE! Lucky thing is that I tried on the spot when I exchanged for the 2nd Ritzo. Man, never again will I buy that brand from Ocean! And so I paid alittle more to get...
L'Oreal Paris Professionnel Anti-Static IONIC Air fix techniart (Force 5): $13.50 (Phew~ what a long name..)
After reading AB's Nature Republic Ice Jelly Primer post.. I just had to try it too! Its not cheap if I were to think that the original price in Korea is only less than $10.. But to think such known brands products (like L'Oreal/Maybelline) to be sold in SG for the cost of $19.80 is rather reasonable. ^_^"
Ice Jelly Primer Cherry: $19.80
SoapWort with Pomegranate Facial Wash: $10.90
Alaska Pure Ice Aqua Sun Cream SPF35: $21.90
Quite like the Ice Jelly Primer and now thinking to get the Blueberry one! Intially I only wanted the blueberry but it was out of stock! =( *hint hint na, help me get with the member card~ hahhax..* As for the Aqua Sun Cream, I keep getting residues on my face.. Till now, I have tried using different day skincare to see if I get the same results. Yap, up to now I still getting residues. =_= FYI, I still put on cream moisturiser before the Sun Cream, I will try not to put cream moisturiser next time and see how it works out. =)
Shiseido Eyelash Curler: $16.20
Cyber Colors Gemstone Aqua-base Pudding Foundation SPF20 PA++: $36.90
I had been lemming on this foundation for a looong time ever since it was launched! And finally I got it!
Aside from this, I start lemming on its 2way cake too! The 2way has very pretty shimmers on it so nice! =D~ (no swatches though..u can only see it in my brain..)
The spatula comes with 2 different scoop design. The round side JUSTTTTT perfect for me to dig the content out of the Ice Jelly Primer! And then the flat scoop for the foundation~ One stone hit 2 birds. ^.^
Now for freebies! Na and me went to collect our dejavu Fiberwig (thickening) Mascara~ Its my first dejavu! It came with a very cute pretty pouch, a combi of coin purse with tissue holder.I like the pink furry accessory, will be using to hang on my bag or hp.. =p
Lasly, some hauls from overseas.. heh heh.. I will not get into details for these babies, as some of these are for someone special!! *wink wink* (~.^)
However, I will get into detail just for one part. Which is, how to check your product authenticity...?
( This only apply to products bought from this company: www.LMCZ.com )
As most of you know, there are zillions of fake/replica/duplicate/unauthentic (whatever you want to call it) products in China/Taiwan/HK/Korea etc etc.. But I must say the fake stuffs are more often than not, made in China.
Believe or not, in China, there are also localised brands being replicated! Say for example, the infamous Chaarming Cat (Not spelt as 'Charming') products, part of LMCZ. They are rather famous in their own country that other people would want to replicate their products for their own benefits!
So, the company came out with the Authentication stickers for every each of their product. You should be able to see the sticker pasted on the box or packaging, otherwise you are buying a fake.
With the sticker, doesn't mean it is authentic, you need to check the number code printed in there on the LMCZ website.
Following pic shows step by step tutorial on how to check your product authenticity.
Basically the same principle applys on the Windows software too, if you realised. ^_^
Just a thought, does anyone of you know how to go about doing a quick check on a perfume to see if its Genuine/Fake during your purchase? ^___^
Make a guess.
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.
I had no chance to tell you before you click this linky, that.... this page is image intensive!!
Anyways, first off, the OOTD:
Skull stufs Cap: City Square Mall, a shop that sells punk/street wear
Long Tee: Japan
Belt, Shorts: Overseas
Black cotton Panty Hose: Dorothy Perkins
High-cut Ankle Canvas Shoes: AMK Central, one of the shoe shops that sells mostly canvas shoes
Cross with Crown Necklace: Thailand
Bracelets: Rubi & Chinatown New Market 3rd level
Leopard print Shoe laces: Daiso!
Focus Points: Protruding pockets & Leopard print Shoe laces
Making sure the shoe laces ends are dangling rather than tied up, making the look more casual 'street'
Minimum eye makeup, using Loreal Paris Open Eyes Palette: Magic Amber.
In this eye makeup, I name it the 'Rainbow'. Starting from the darkest brown colour along the lashline and slowly fades out to lightest shade upwards, drawing in a rainbow kind of method. =p
Just to say: I DO NOT HAVE UNBALANCE EYEBROWS! I just have unbalanced double eyelids! Which stupidly makes my eyebrows kinda look like one is higher than the other.. urgh.. OTL|||
My Fashion Hauls:
Pull & Bear @ Ngee Ann
This is totally out of my TO BUY LIST! Ok...frankly speaking I didn't prepare my Buy list before I head town, hence I just anyhow buy... sigh~
Short Singlet in repeat patterns of trees: $19.90
Flamingo Long Singlet: $29.90
I need to "Lipstick" Up Tee: $17.90 (Cheap & Cute words! XD~)
Pull & Bear are having many very nice tees @ such prices, even for the gents, they have many nice graphics printed on them! Anyone who loves tees should grab them now since its GSS! ^o^
(((Ignore my nerdy face & my crazzzzzy hair in the changing room...U_U" )))
Last pic shows purchases from:
New Look @ 313
Twisted Grunge Rope Necklace with crosses: $19.10
Black Corsage with crystal (clip & pin type): $7.90
Next off, Skincare & Makeups!
I headed to Town area, one reason being that I had WON the ESTEE LAUDER Weekly Giveaway Contest! (from Facebook)
So, I went to collect this 15ml Advanced Night Repair from Tangs Estee Lauder Counter. Seems like Joyce you too gotten this prize? ^.~
The letter that I brought along to collect this little prize wrote that 15ml bottle of ANR cost about $45? O_O And at the counter I saw this HUGE bottle of ANR... Will it cost like $450?? hahax.. I didn't ask..
Liking the dropper method!
Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Sexy Enamel Gloss (in Honey 04 & Cool Beige 02): $16.90 /each
I ran into Aries whose a BA for Loreal, she ask me to try this gloss while she's still at work @ her counter! Isn't it funny! =D She told me this lipgloss is by far the best one she had used as it can really conceal your pigmented lips even without wearing lipsticks! Oooo.. I had a lip concealer from this range and loving it so far, hence not a bad idea for me to try out their gloss too. The scent of the gloss is exactly same as the lip concealer.
Neutrogena Rainbath: $9.90
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPORT Sunblock Cooling Mist: $24.50 (It is a sunblock & a cooling mist in 1!! Both are my favourites! ♡)
Sasa Hauls: (20% off I nuovi products! Grab now before its gone!)
I nuovi Trucolor Eyeshadow (in Rich Gold): $20.80 (usual $26)

Shiseido Eyelash Curler (with refill): $16.20 (bought for na)
Lip smacker Rollys (in Vanilla Coke): $7.90 (I tried on my hand, kinda felt oily...U_U" )
And now some Swatches!
I love the brushtip of the lipgloss! So smooth~
Credits to Joyce, putting up animated gifs is an easy way to show how a product works (besides video) ^___^v~
I nuovi Lipscrub and treatment doesn't have any colour when I apply the content on my hand, hence no pic! The scrub micro-beads is so very fine, so different from the beads we often use in face scrub! Nice!
Facescape also has a highlighter & blush colour, I'm so inlove with the highlight colour, thinking if I should get it or not.. But I like the bronze colour from this shade too!
And some choo choo cats for everyone (to view only...)! =^◑ω◑^=
And ending with a total damage of $260.20 in half a day!!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

Thanks Verlyn for tagging me! =D
If there is no limit to the range of products I should pick on, I will surely name it 6 skincare, 6 makeup, 6 haircare, 6 fashion clothes & on & on...
So today, I shall just name it as the 6 makeup/makeup tools I surely won't forget to use or bring along when I'm outside!
1. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly for my lips: Good to use as lip mask and lip moisturiser
2. Estēe Lauder Cyber White EX Extra Intensive UV Protector SPF 50/PA+++ :My new ♥! after my previous ♥ed Lancome sunblock! ^.^
3. MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 NW25: Mostly for concealing dark circles
4. Covermark Moisture Veil LX Base Foundation: Love to use this with damp sponge it gives me flawless skin!
5. Shiseido Eyelash Curler : It fits my eyes perfectly and it curls my lashes very well, can even go up to 90degrees if I press it hard(but no, I try not to do that). There is always refills to buy, so I do not have to worry when the rubber spoils!
6. Callas Lipstick in CLB BR03 Sheer Coco : Very natural shade, it makes me look like as if I didn't have lipstick on my lips cos the shade's so natural ^_^
You might not want to follow me
Swatches of Foundation Bases:
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Liquid Foundation in Intensity 2.0 (See available shades here)
HAOJS CC Perfect Repair Cream (BB) Foundation
Due to its taken in dim lighting, the colours might not be accurate. Hence I did the swatch twice on my arm and back of hand.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light: Yellowish tone. Creamy feel at beginning, starts to turn matt quickly when blended out. Light to medium coverage depending on how much you use.
HAOJS Repair BB: Beige tone. Looks thick but infact very watery when blended out. Somehow brightens up your skin alittle. Very minimum coverage to almost none. Appears to feel like tinted moisturizer. Gives a glossy finish to your skin.
When tissue pressed against foundation:
Estee Lauder...not transfer-proof I must say.
Wherelse for HAOJS, I kind of used more pressure than that of Estee Lauder's in order to get that brown colour stains on the tissue. Infact, more water(or oil?) was captured instead of the foundation colour.
Swatches of Nude to Peachy Lipsticks:
Shiseido Perfect Roughe BE109: My nudest of all my nude lipsticks (can compare with NYX Circe) but its more moisturizing than NYX's
Callas Sheer Coco
BourJois Rough Clubbing Pretty Nude: Has glitters!
Revlon Color Burst Peach
Randon Swatches of Liners & Blush:
Stage Gerbera Blush: Suppose to look peachy... hmm...
Majolica Majorca LE Perfect Automatic Liners: Gotta love the white liner! It kind of reminds me of glow in the dark objects...
And 1 MAC Haul I had totally forgotten about it! And this further adds up to my concealer collection...
Something happened to my dog! Baby went to Martial Arts Federation to learn....
