Anna Sui hauls June 2013- part I

So, My haul with Parkson Anna Sui before I got pregnant and if I'm not mistaken, it was also the last shopping with Anna Sui... I couldn't stand any chemical scent during pregnancy  thus, I stopped shopping with Anna Sui. Now, I just don't feel like buying anymore~ the happiest person is my husband , I guessed.

  Have a look ~

these are the free gifts

1) Anna Sui red and white checked tote bag (can be used two ways) - inside is black and white
2) Anna Sui pillow (this is a previous gift which I own 3 now!!) 
3) Anna Sui cylindrical hearts make up pouch- this is sooooo adorable~
From left to right
4) Anna Sui blusher
5) Anna Sui Lip Gloss
6) Anna Sui eye gel (silver)- can be used as eye base or eyeshadow
7) Anna Sui mini hand cream -Rose
8) Anna Sui Perfect Mascara-sample
9) Anna Sui mini glitter lip gloss- vibrant red
10) Anna Sui liquid foundation
11) Anna Sui floral card case

Finally, 11) Anna Sui 4 large paper clips

 forgot about these two lil vials- fairy dance secret wish

Wow, that's many gifts huh? Imagine how much I spent.....
 I don't know about other places but here in Malaysia, the SAs are quite stingy due to company policies. I was a regular customer that's why I could get so many gifts.

However, I don't think the same song can be sung as Anna Sui had been sold to another company which I heard the gifts are less now...... All SAs I knew had left Anna Sui due to bad sales... who knows? I never went back... hahaha

I will share what I bought in next post.

travel- Shangri-la hotel Putrajaya, Selangor, M'sia

It was hari raya aidilfitri holiday 2013. We visited Shangri-la Putrajaya.

 the sign beside the road

It was on the hill and the sign clearly tell u the destination.
car parks were just too far from the entrance that i had to do check in while he parked the car.
I did not take photo at the reception as I was so hot and angry for they checked in another couple who came later than me. But one good thing about this hotel is they check all guests in while both are sitting!!!! awesome. never had I seen any 5-star hotel provide this service before. This would be the reason I wan to come back.

The hotel is very big , seperated in two side buildings connecting to the main building in the middle where cafe and reception are.

our room was deluxe park view.
the first thing i went into it was playing with their wardorbe's door and bathroom's/ it was creatively and nicely designed. the wardrobe was well-equipped with extra drawers where u can store shoes, bags and almost everthing!!  what a shame i did not snap photos.... >(

the king size bed with vintage head board

one thing i dont like is there's no LED flat screen in the room but the big and heavy outdated tv set.....
luckily it can be moved so i could enjoy show in the bath tub.
 the day bed and the outdated tv in the tv cabinet
the sliding door that connected the room and bathroom.

 shangri-la toiletries 
the bath room was another place i love as it was big and bright, separated shower,toilet and bath tub!
what's best, they provide a huge space with large mirror and stool and shaving mirror for me(oh yea~) to finish my facial routine and also to put on my make up!!it's like a separated vanity room. that's never exist  in any hotel I had visited so far.

i love the multi-function study desk as well. they store the hair dryer and mirror below the table.close it when u r not using them. it's like ikea design but im not sure if ikea has anything like this....

some pics in the hotel

we visited the pool but did not jump in as it was too hot and very small.... looked crowded though there were less than 10 people.
balcony was dirty so we did not enjoy our breakfast there as planned.. :(

our in-room self-bought hi tea XD
another plus point is they serve basic utensils in the room. love~

there are still a very huge space to improve for this hotel to make it up to the grade else, it would not be attracting more tourists or locals to stay in it.
 and It's not decorated in the way I like but there are others to attract me to come back to this hotel.
however, not in short as Putrajaya can be a boring place if one is not visiting the government buildings and parks.

our lunch in Alamanda( too  early that many shops were still closed) before heading to K.L

travel- The Pearl of Asia~Hong Kong

had a trip to HK in 2012.... cant tell much about it because I was too tired to walk around and most time spent in the hotel. 
I didn't have a good impression of HK during my trip. Simply because of the people were too rude, arrogant, uncivilized.....
some tips are: 
  • there are lots of cheap beauty products in HK
  • the food charged way too high for a small potion
  • rude people everywhere
  • rushing people everywhere
  • the nicest Portuguese tart found here(better Macau's)
  • don't speak Mandarin or they thought you are from China
  • good public transport system 
  • hardly find sauce especially if you are eating Dim Sum
  • it is clean in HK
I can't agree with the life and the people in HK, can't get use to it, can't be part of it.
If I ever return, that's only because I'm shopping for cheap stuffs. 

 cheap nail stickers in Sasa

 Dim Sum treated by hubby's cousin

 The most meals we had was in fast food restaurants

Haul- Taiwan Nov 2012

My third trip to Taiwan which was the most expensive one, because:
  • followed trip
  • spent extra on souvenirs 
  • bought too many masks!!!!!

Bought : 

  • hundreds of masks of different brands because they were so much cheaper than Malaysia's
  • Auto Umbrellas which can open and close with only a button with cute pictures on them
  • Accessories rack from Daiso (It is cheaper to shop in Daiso in Taiwan)
  • Ginger Tea Pack
  • Cotton buds from Daiso
  • Facial cotton from Daiso
  • Tampon ( there were so many different types and brands to be chosen in Taiwan)
  • H/P ear plugs with cute design
  • Majolica Majorca lemon grass nail polish
  • face masks from Daiso
  • honey
  • Antiseptic Wet Tissue from Watson with very cheap price(clearance)
  • 4 bottles of make up oil remover from Watson ( brand: Softimo)
  • 3 bottles of Biore face sunscreen (cheaper than Malaysia's)
  • Art and craft postcards as souvenir
  • Opal 1-minute hair treatment (6 tubes, recommended by a friend)
  • Kanebo make up base from Watson ( 3 different shades)
  • Cable collectors (4 pcs) from Daiso
  • Sally Hansen top and base coat (2 bottles)
  • stickers from Daiso
  • a gift exchanged in 7-11 
  • coffee which came with a beautiful cup pad
  • some cookies/biscuits as souvenirs
  • a cheap but nice legging 
and some used or finished or eaten stuff which I can't remember anymore
I must say Taiwan is a shopping paradise and a wonderful country to be visited even if  you are travelling alone.... 
I had never expected three visits but I did!!!!

Review- Tried and Finished (AS)

Anna Sui cosmetic and skin care products that had been tried and finished (only one didn't)~

  • AS Loose Compact Powder G ( RM 100++)
It is very handy and good for travelling. But it is a shimmer powder so not really suitable for daily use.
It comes with AS famous rosew scent which may annoy some people.
It comes with only one colour, so do test before purchasing. 
There's a hole at the bottom of the case and you can just buy a refil powder to save some money... Im wondering if it is discontinued...

  • AS Dolly Girl Lip Gloss (RM 70++)
I have all 3 shades but only this is finished.
The gloss has very light colour but long lasting texture, if you dont eat and drink.
There are sparkling stars in the gloss which made it good for dinner/clubbing wear. I love those stars~~

  • AS Limited Edition Christmas Lip Gloss 2010 
This lip gloss is really special for it's design: with Anna words in it and also its applicator was not sponge, but a flat plastic head.
I like the applicator but I really couldn't stand the scent of this gloss. It was way too strong and I was pregnant, became sensitive to scent. 
I gave it out without finishing it.
