Make-up Junkie

When it's come to make-up, I can talk and talk and talk about it for hours.my collections at home getting more out of control (shame on me)! I guess I should blame it to all the offer from various online website. They keep sending notifications non-stop

#alasan #Ivisititvoluntarilyeverysingleday
#bigproblem

From Sephora, to Hermo and now Althea.kr. I just manage to find new things but still affordable every single day. #gigih

ButI'm not a make-up pro at all
my lipstick doesn't always neat
my blusher sometimes to bright, well can I blame it on lighting though? haaha..
the point is no one perfect :p 


this my morning 15minutes rush make-up before to work - mind my unexplained expression.
not good at all in taking selfie nor making stupid faces. -plain me-

Make-up: foundation (Royal Ginseng from natural republic), Concealer under eyes from nyx, eye shadow my favorite are from COC and too faced, blusher plus a little highlight  (make no different pun for me -_-) lipsticks, finishing powder from nyx and make-up long lasting spray.

been trying to find a light and natural eye lashes lately, any recommendation? I found that eye lashes that I bought in Japan was so good, that I couldn't find any here. Plus putting it on within the 15min time frame that I had was impossible.

any make-up junkie out there who accidentally read this, please share your favourite make-up too!

foods festival

Not just any food festival, it Nonas'foodfestival :)) 
hahahaaaaa Having my own food festival at home. Obviusly I wasn't over yet on my Busan trip, my longing for korean foods are irresistible.
 
 Fermented soybean paste stew.
Doenjang-jjigae 된장찌개 - preparing this was super easy. ... I bought an instant paste off course. All I do is toss all the ingredients in a pot and tadaaa..

 tteokbokki. After a few times experimenting and adjusting all the ingredients finally I can eat eatable tteokbokki :P

Thanks to maangchi, I can finally enjoy Korean fried chicken. Next time I cook this, gonna bring the spiciness to another level-buckle up.

they'll come around

At certain time of life we'll have difference priority
Either it's your social life, carrier, financial, friendship or family - we put one of those on top another depend on situation and our priority at a time.

When things happen we normally slowly change our priority to adapt new environment and suddenly the whole world think that you're turning your back from them. The truth is you don't.
Yes, shit happen. That's the reason the words tolerance is important.  I guess everyone including myself sometimes being too sensitive and self-center. The world don't only just go around you, stop making assumption that just because when someone did things differently that make one a bad friend, sibling or partner.

The point is we tolerate, once in a while everyone needs a break from everything. If your friends need their space, give them a break and enjoy your own time. Don't stress your self on unnecessary thing. And at time like this, true friends will show. The one that accept you no matter what, they'll come around. Everyone hurts a little because you care about each other, don't toss your friendship or relationship for stupid things.  

-they'll come around-

I left my soul in Busan - Part 3 Dadaepo Beach

Dadaepo Beach
다대포해수욕장

is now easier to visit due to the extension of Metro Train Line on Line 1 which now extend to the last station Dadaepo Station.
 Nearby, Dadaepo Beach Park is also the perfect place for a family vacation. Picnic, water features for kids and parks for elders to walk around.

 Go to Exit 4 towards Dadaepo Beach. Once you are out of exit walk straight you'll see fountain too connected to the park and beach.



 Walk pass this building.
This view from above - from google. There you'll see the fountain which towards your right side is the park and beach. Just enjoy your walk.

 



 Didn't manage to walk the walkway trail at the end due to sudden rain. That's my reason to come back - again! Yeay.
 

There's also quite a lots of seafood restaurant with open concept on your left by the road when you walk along the road pass the fountain towards Dadaepo and Beach (Turn right at the intersection traffic light).
You won't miss it actually. 


- XoXo-



I left my soul in Busan - Part 2 Choryang Market

Come across Choryang Market while wondering around the underground shopping at Busan Station.

 To be honest I did all my shopping activities most of the time at their underground shopping centre. I don't really mind about branded things as long as it's look cool and cute. No brand No hal. 


 just walk towards the end of the underground shopping centre you'll come across the exit towards choryang market.
It's so nearby, maybe 30m walks only and on your left you'll see this entrance.


My favourite for breakfast,lunch and dinner. Strawberries!


 Giant vegetables.

If you enjoys wondering around like a local, check out Choryang Market as well k.

I left my soul in Busan - Part 1 Haeundae

Yes, back from Busan -again-
I just don't get it why make such a fuss about me keep on coming back to South,Korea.
We do things that we love, and South Korea is one of my preference place to visit and spend my holiday.
Ain't spending your money nor time *annoyed*

Why do I keep on coming back? I just love it here.
I love the fashion trend, I love the atmosphere, shopping wise is just amazing, I love all the choices of skincare offer, I love the scenery and the foods too.

I just love it here so much.

One of my bucket list this time around is to visit Hauendae Beach.
Yeah. 

 I love the beach here but what I love the most about Hauendae is the foods.



 Walking around Heaundae is amazing though now there are busy road construction obstructing the traffic a little but still, nothing beat the desire to explore.

The on going of upgrading the road all along the way to the beach.

This is Haeundae Market entrance located on the left side across the road on your way to the beach. Shouldn't miss this alley.  Haeundae subway station, Take exit 3 or 5 towards the beach - maybe 3 minutes walk.


It's all about the foods :)
 


To be honest, wondering around market all around South Korea is the thing I like the most. It makes me feel like a local there, a glimpse into real-life everyday Korean. Nothing beats their market yet.

One step #Lyric

A year has passed, 
Spring seems so welcoming
Oh beautiful day beautiful life ~

Just one step closer
One step away
To live a beautiful memorial day  
{Start of a new day and come to realization that you're back }
and when I turn my head back
** There you are, standing all alone
Reaching out for my hand
I just couldn't decide
Why can't I decide
Stupid broken heart with my teary eyes
It just one step away 
{Standing in between choices, a step ahead or a step back to you}

One step closer, one step away
To be happy again but
Why can't I decide
 to where should I run
my awaiting future ahead or you are it

**There you are, standing all alone
Reaching out for my hand
I just couldn't decide
Why can't I decide
Stupid broken heart with my teary eyes
It just one step away
One step closer, one step away

************************
 
I just couldn't decide Why can't I decide
Just one step away, One step closer

Embrace the present.

Letting go isn't about having the courage to let go of the past, 
It is about having the wisdom to embrace the present.

Whatever happen in past taught me to be wiser and stronger.
 Growing up is a battle of tears and happiness ~ I could never letting go of my past instead.
It taught me to be a better person.

People say you would never be able to run before you learn to walk.
So I walked, walked a thousand mile to be where I am now. Maybe I'm not a millionaire nor the most successful person but you know,

"Someone else out there is happy with less than what I have"
  

Always remember to have the wisdom to embrace the present.

 
Embrace your baggage as well :) You'll never know what inside after all - await future.

Changing Profession.

Have you ever wonder how it'd be to be someone else?

Sometimes I wish I'm not a Quantity Surveyor,
How about being fashion designer or maybe entrepreneur like VIVY YUSOFF,
dangggg - in my dream. I found that I have a really bad marketing skill - so bad that I even scared to dream to be an entrepreneur anymore hahaa.

Sometimes I wish I'm a mechanic! So that I don't have to hassle about sending my car for servicing, maintenance or repairing. I can do it all if I'm a mechanic. Erm, maybe not for me - imagine myself dressing up like mechanic -----
maybe not.
Need to send my car for servicing after this - for real.

Then, few months back I wish I'm an electrician instead :P Two of my kitchen lights were not working, have tried to change the bulbs on my own but still not working. I think I need to change the whole set of it - the long Fluorescent Bulbs type. Or maybe I just left it rosak after all I barely use the kitchen. Problem solve, no longer wish to be an electrician.

During festive season I wish I'm a manicurist too. So that I can do my nails perfectly. Can you imagine being paid for 10 little fingernails for almost an hour in a range of rm100 to rm120.
I even think to do a part time as a manicurist, but well I need skill. All I can draw is a perfect stripes on that little fingernails :p

Today I wish I'm a plumber! Wonder why?
Because somehow there was (suspected) leaking on my house pipes. The funny thing is that there was only a spot of water mark on my toilet ceiling and instead my neighbour's washroom next door was wet, water coming from the ceiling and water patch start to appear on the wall. Somehow he said that the leaking is from my house since the meter is still running even though no usage at a time -_-! Hence he just helped me to lock off the incoming water point. 
--------------------------------------
A house without water supply is not a house. 
So hence I wish I'm a plumber.

I need a real plumber soon though. I need to stop daydreaming and get my self together.
For now I'll just stick being a Quantity Surveyor instead and a very lame blogger who update the blog for her own reading -_-!

Winter in Japan - Tips

Traveling tips winter in Japan.

1. Decide your places to visit - to plan your transportation ; train passes.
 As for us we took 4 types of passes, 

a) Yokoso pass - which include Train from Kansai to Namba Station plus one day subway pass - 1500 yen.
b) Kansai Thru Pass - Include most of the train and subway line exclude for JR Line. We used this pass to travel from Osaka to Kobe, Kyoto-Arashiyama, Uji & Nara for 3days - 5300 yen.
c) Osaka Subway pass for a day - 800 yen.


d) Airport pass - from one way subway to Namba Station then to Kansai airport - 1000yen.

2. Coin pouch / mini sling bag!  
You'll be needed this. You'll get a lot of coin in return etc 500yen equal to almost rm20. It's a lot! So coins are valuable. You may need a bag to put your train pass as well, trust me I put it pocket and had almost lost it twice. Mini sling bag is good cause easy reachable when you required your card. And you can just put your coin inside it as well. Spend your coins, if you get confuse with the value when paying at counter, just take some and show it to the cashier, they'll help you up #hahaa

.mini sling bag helps a lots.


Currency exchanger here in Malaysia don't except coin as well. So spend it all while you can.
3. Backup phone
 During winter get an extra handphone other than iphone. Somehow our iphones kept on switched off and drain off battery in sudden cause it's too cold. It happen to my other friends as well. Luckily I have OPPO as a standby handphone and it works perfectly. #hidupOPPO #nosponsorshipfromOPPO

4. Hyperdia and Japan railway apps
Use Hyperdia for train reference, but make sure you'll download Japan railway apps as well in your phone in case you lose your internet connection - our broadband run out of battery, we figure out our train route manually by referring the apps. 

5. Getting on the correct train



   If you wasn't sure if you are not the right train, look at the time of arrival on hyperdia for example 15:39 and look at the screen, even though the train arrive early but the time display on the screen will be the expected arrival same as in hyperdia. You are on the right track.

If you are not sure which station you are as well, refer the number of the station!


For example Namba (Nankai) Station are NK01 on Nankai Line (blue) or Nankai Koya Lie (Green), depends on which line of train are you in. The number references are easier to refer and remember.

5. Use comfy shoes. 
They will be a lots of walking and transfer of train which involve a lots of up and down of staircases as well. Keep fit :) 

6. Book your accommodation for the whole trip in advance.
No walk in - Japan immigration is quite strict about this. They are paying more attention on this where sometimes you'll required to show them proof of reservation and payment for all your accommodation. Print it out.

7. Buying train ticket 
If you somehow need to buy ticket from machine, dang, you'll need hyperdia to figure out the fare to your destination. The system require you to key in the total fare to your location and not your location, and the display of station names are in Japanese - can your read it? hehee.. So use hyperdia to total up your train fare to your destination. If you wanna buy pass, use machine stated 'pass' on it, in the above picture maybe the pink one.

Have fun on your trip :))

Winter in Japan - Part 5

Day 5.
Last day before heading back to Kuching on the next day.

Everyone who knows me well know that how much I love Korea. Keep on visiting Korea every single year, this May is my fourth time there. So here in Japan we wouldn't miss the chance to visit Japan little Korea town #kiasusungguh

Korea town is located not far from Tsuruhasi station, exit 5 turn right walk ahead at the intersection main road cross to the other side (zebra line). The korean shops are scattered in the building but to this main korea town you have to walk further in this building and out of it. We just used google maps to help us.



 The reason why I'm here!

 and this too! I used not to like it but after a while I end up loving it. Banana uyu, if only they have strawberry as well.


Last spot was Umeda Sky Tower.

It wasn't that special but the view from 173m up high is breathtaking as well.

 #there'salwayshopeoutthere


The elevator to the observatory deck. best design ever.



 The observatory deck.

 Going down now #backtoreality

Here is Umeda Sky Tower view, those to V shape are the elevators to the observatory decks. I got to say amazing construction and well plan. 
  

Staircases to heaven? or maybe not just to the observatory deck of Umeda Sky Buiding.

Winter in Japan - Part 5

Day 5.
Last day before heading back to Kuching on the next day.

Everyone who knows me well know that how much I love Korea. Keep on visiting Korea every single year, this May is my fourth time there. So here in Japan we wouldn't miss the chance to visit Japan little Korea town #kiasusungguh

Korea town is located not far from Tsuruhasi station, exit 5 turn right walk ahead at the intersection main road cross to the other side (zebra line). The korean shops are scattered in the building but to this main korea town you have to walk further in this building and out of it. We just used google maps to help us.



 The reason why I'm here!

 and this too! I used not to like it but after a while I end up loving it. Banana uyu, if only they have strawberry as well.


Last spot was Umeda Sky Tower.

It wasn't that special but the view from 173m up high is breathtaking as well.

Here is Umeda Sky Tower view, those to V shape are the elevators to the observatory decks. I got to say amazing construction and well plan. 
  

Staircases to heaven? or maybe not just to the observatory deck of Umeda Sky Buiding.
