(English: Except hauling a bunch of stuff, I also spent some good time on eating and drinking on my birthday:)embedded by Embedded Video
雖然德興唔係因為佢特別好食 (d野食都唔差既), 但係勝在夠近我地飲野既地方! 咁樣又過左一年喇. 希望黎緊呢年仲精彩啦!
(English: Even though I wouldn’t call Tak Hing the best for hot pot (well, it’s not the worst as well), it’s very close to where we went drinking later that night! Well a year passed in a jiffy! Hopefully the coming year is even better!)
P.S. 今年大計都係同上年一樣, 繼續可以敗家同埋同大家分享我鍾意既野!
(English: P.S. The plan for this year is the same as last year, still hope that I can continue to haul stff and share with you all what I like and dislike!)
P.S.S. 呢期做野好tired, 所以希望可以去旅行hea下. 不過我趕唔切新年去lu, 我而家諗緊Easter去! 我去左旅行社拎左d information, 但係我又無咩idea想去邊. 諗緊沙巴, 吉隆坡或者東京 (東京可能Easter唔去住留翻下年一月去), 你地有無suggestions?
(English: P.S.S. It’s also extremely busy at work lately, therefore, I am hoping to go somewhere for a true relaxation. I cannot make it in Lunar New Year but I am thinking about going somewhere during Easter! I went to travel agencies to gather some information … hmmmm… I have absolutely no idea of where I should head to. Maybe Kota Kinabalu? Kuala Lumpur? Or Tokyo (hmmm maybe I save Tokyo till next January?)? What would you ladies suggest?)
我似乎真係離不開係喜慶節日敗家 (雖然唔係喜慶節日我都敗家). 今年生日我無咩Wish List, 但係都一樣敗得好開心, 我拍左片等你地都可以分享下我既喜悅!
(English: It seems to me that I am always associated with hauling stuff on important dates (well I know I know … I haul stuff anyway even on not-so-important dates). Last birthday, even though I didn’t literally have a Wish List, I did haul quite a few stuff home (happily). I shot another video about my serious haul so that you could also experience my joy!)embedded by Embedded Video
之前你地睇我個生日禮物video咪見我有盒Dior palette既 (回顧按此). 本身我想用下先再試色同埋一次過review比大家睇, 但係望望下見佢d色好靚, 我又想試左色先. 唔緊要啦, 我而家post左試色圖比大家睇左先, 之後再補翻review啦. 再望多次個靚樣丫:
(English: You must have seen the following Dior Palette from my previous video (refresh memory). Originally, I wanted to give it a try before swatching (then I could incorporate the swatches and the review together). Well, but I am so tempted to swatch the colors for you since they all look sooooooo pretty! Well, nevermind, I’ll do the swatches now and I will write another review on the paletter later. Let’s take a look at the pretty thing again:)
Dior Cannage Couture Eyelook Makeup Palette (Color: 001 Dawn Grey)
價錢 (Price): HK$480
(English: Only the top left corner color is a matt color, others are all shimmery.)
d色唔錯呀! 灰色今年變左係in色, 我覺得都好丫, 我呢期都好鍾意灰色. 我今個week會努力玩下個palette, 遲d再補翻個review比大家望啦.
(English: The colors are quite nice! Grey is definitely back for the season and I’m loving it! Well, I will give this palette a good try this week and then review it later! See you!)
你地新年會唔會新內衣過年ga? 我就會喇 (hahaha, 係呀, 亞mama話新年咩都要新丫ma)! 我未有時間出去揀, 所以係網上面睇下先. 比我見到Triumph有set野好靚wor:
(English: Do you usually buy new lingerie for Lunar New Year? I do (hahaha, yea, mom said everything has to be new for Lunar New Year for a fresh good start)!. I haven’t got the time to shop physically for new lingerie yet, so I took sometime to browse through some items online. Ah, and I saw something pretty from Triumph:)
Triump Sexy Red Bikini Style Set 性感紅色比堅尼內衣
我好鍾意隻棗紅色, 無平時個d鮮紅色咁”leung”! 唔錯唔錯. 同埋呢個bra有側推功能同deep V剪裁, 應該會另個shape更靚.
(English: I really like the deep red, right, it’s not as outdated as the bright red we see from time to time! Nice!! This bra has push up on the sides and a deep V cut, I am sure it would make “the shape” look better.)
呢set個感覺真係好sexy, 如果唔想咁sexy, 我諗緊:
(English: This set is a definite sexy choice, how about something less sexy?)
sloggi Suede 仿皮系列
呢隻pink我又係超鍾意啦. 感覺呢set比較casual d, young d!
(English: Ohhhh I love this pink! This set looks more causal and enegetic!)
(English: And there is a purple choice too:)
sloggi Embrossed 仿皮系列
呢set係令身既. 3 set我都鍾意呀, 但係我最鍾意都係Triump個set, 你地呢?
(English: This set is of a shiny finish. Hmmmm…. I like all 3 of them, but still I would prefer the Triump set, what about you?)
購物滿淨價 HK$780 (for Trimph)/ $680 (for sloggi)， 即可免費獲贈純棉浴巾乙條
(English: Gentle Reminder: If you shop at Triumph/ sloggi during Dec 25 to Feb 20, you will get some free gifts depending on the amount of money that you have spent!)
有無諗過一個click就可以做善事? 係咪諗緊, “咁易? 係唔係呀?” 係呀, 我頭先睇到Maybelline Facebook Page有個 Spread Your Maybelline Diamond Kisses 紐約慈善之吻既活動:
(English: Have you ever thought of a click could indeed help those in need? Well you must be thinking, “really? Wouldn’t that be too easy?” Right! Sometimes it’s just that simple! I just read on Maybelline Facebook Page that they have the Spread Your Maybelline Diamond Kisses program:)
咁點做善事呢? 好簡單, follow下面instruction就得喇:
(English: So, how could you help those in need? Very simple, just follow the two steps below:)
去 “like”/ “讚好” Maybelline Facebook Page
Click寫住”Kiss Your Friends”既黑底圓形logo
Go to Maybelline Facebook Page and click “like”
Click the black logo with “Kiss Your Friends” on
每 一個click, Maybelline就會捐出HK$0.5俾聯合國兒童基金會. 同時, 個地球上面既Diamond Kisses就會有New York慢慢碌過黎Hong Kong (我覺得呢part好得意), 咁當Diamond Kisses碌到過黎Hong Kong個時, Maybelline就會捐雙倍捐款俾聯合國兒童基金會, 即係HK$0.5變HK$1.00呀!!
(English: Maybelline will donate HK$0.5 to UNICEF per each click (sounds good?). At the same time, the Diamond Kisses on the earth will move from New York to HK (I quite like this part actually), so when the Diamond Kisses reach HK, Maybelline will turn its donation into a double, which means HK$1.00 per each click instead of HK$0.5!! How wonderful!!
係咪好簡單呢? 快d去”click”啦!! 2011年2月28號就截止喇. 快d郁手啦. 同埋記得叫埋d friends去click呀! 等d Diamond Kisses可以快d碌黎HK!
(English: Very simple eh? Come on, go now and click since the deadline will be on Feb 28th, 2011. Oh and remember to ask your friends to give a helping hand too, so the Diamond Kisses would reach HK faster!
(English: Not only makeup could make you look beautiful, helping others could make you feel beautiful inside too!!)
今年生日真係過得好開心, 癲左成個星期都係時候返來喇. 今年收到特別多生日禮物, 好多我都覺得好surprised! 我知我有d friends會睇呢個blog, 再係度多謝你地先! 好喇, 咁我今年收到咩生日禮物呢? 睇下丫:
(English: I had a fabulous and fantastic birthday this year and I was absolutely busy with eating and drinking for the whole week, well, it’s about time to make an appearance here! This year, I received quite a few pressies and some of them are very surprising! I know some of my friends would visit my blog, please let me to take the opportunity to thank you again! Well well well, spotlight please! Let’s see what I’ve received for my birthday:)embedded by Embedded Video
係呀,呢個video淨係講我收左d咩, 但係未同大家share我既嚴重敗家戰利品, 我會係下一兩個video再同大家分享.
(English: Yea, this video only mentioned what I’ve received but it didn’t show what I hauled (actually shopped till I dropped). I’m going to make another video about my “treasures”! Stay tuned!)
今個生日真係又開心又恐怖. 開心既係可以同friend一齊過, 同埋收到好多禮物; 恐怖既係我買左好多野俾自己 (仲要有d又係furniture). 生日收到咩同埋買左咩我會分別拍片同大家分享, 遲少少再post出黎俾大家望下啦. 本身諗住呢個恐怖旅程就咁就完結啦, 點知今日去左銅鑼灣食飯, 食完又出事. 今次係Kiehl’s其中兩隻我好想試既野:
(English: This birthday can be regarded as both happy and horrible as the same time. I was happy because I could spend it with my friends and I got quite a few pressies; well as for horrible, it was because I did actually shop till I dropp (hmmm…some of them were furniture again ). There are two videos coming up on my birthday pressies and my birthday haul, hopefully I could post them some time soon. Originally, I thought the “horrible” part was over, but I was so wrong! I went to Causeway Bay for dinner tonight only ended up with more stuff back home. This time, I got a couple Kiehl’s items:)
Kiehl’s Double Strength Deep Wrinkle Filler
價錢 (Price): HK$400/ 20ml
呢隻我好有興趣想試, 但係我係有少少乾紋, wrinkles我就無乜 (thank God). 咁行過Kiehl’s, Mr. Honey話佢好有興趣 (佢多d wrinkles ma), 我就叫佢買黎試下, 等我又可以用下. 呢個佢用一陣之後我會代筆寫, 我諗佢用應該可以見到個effect真係勁唔勁.
(English: I’m indeed very interested in it even though I don’t have wrinkles (some fine line due to dryness instead – thank God!). When we passed by, Mr Honey was like, “ohhh… that’s interesting…I would love to try that!” (hmmm…he has more wrinkles than me!!) Being a skincare freak, I urged him to get it (yea…and I could use it myself as well). I’ll wait for him to try for maybe a few weeks and decide if it promises what it says. I will write on his behalf on this!)
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
價錢 (Price): HK$395/ 30ml
我成日聽話Guerlain隻Midnight Secret好正, 但係我就未試到佢. 而家Kiehl’s又出左隻話夜晚用黎修護皮膚既野, 唔係好貴就心痕想試. 試過上手感覺唔太油, 所以買左黎用. 我開左lu, 暫時用左IPSA Metabolizer之後用, 睇下個效果點就再同大家分享啦.
(English: I have heard so much about Guerlain Midnight Secret but it’s not on the top of my wish list, so I haven’t given it a go so far! Right now, Kiehl’s has this new release of night time skin recovery item and the price is not too killing, I am very tempted to give it a shot. I tried on the back of my hand and found that it wasn’t too oily, so I brought it home with me. I just started using it after applying IPSA Metabolizer. I will observe its effects for a couple weeks and will definitely post a piece on this!)
(English: Also, the BA gave me a few samples:)
Facial Anti-wrinkle Cream + ACAI Damage Correcting Moisturizer + Yerba Mate Tea Toner
買完之後我係度諗, “我呢個weekend真係敗左好鬼多野…” 個心真係有少少過意唔去. 算啦, 生日咁大個藉口, 唔通唔俾自己對自己好d咩 (係…我知我知…我成日都對自己好好).
(English: After this mini haul, I couldn’t help but think, “I really did get a lot of stuff for myself during this weekend…my heart just sank while thinking about this. Well well well, but I got a BIG excuse, right? It’s the birthday syndrome! It’s my birthday and I can’t bear to treat myself badly (yes… I also know that I give myself so many treats from time to time already!).
好啦, 我呢兩日會edit個生日禮物video (樣樣我都好鍾意), 希望weekend前可以upload同你地分享啦.
(English: Great! I will be editing my birthday pressie video (I actually love every item I got), hopefully I can upload them before the weekend! Stay tuned!)
雖然我未搬完, 但係我就已經搬左d比較重要既化妝品返屋企. 不如而家望下我有d咩丫. 你地應該會覺得熟口熟面, 因為全部都係呢期講過下既.
(English: Even though I haven’t finished moving yet, I already brought some more important cosmetics home. Let’s see what I have . I think you will be familiar with most of my collection since I mentioned quite a few of them before in my blog posts.)embedded by Embedded Video
(English: Last September, I hauled some Laura Mercier foundation back home (refresh memory), one of those became my favourite (refresh memory), but for the other one, its fate wasn’t the same. At first when I started using it, I thought it was nice, however, after a few days of trial, I discovered some main defects. After that, I use it spontaneously… well, it’s been a few months now and let me share my comments with you:
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15
My color – Real Sand
價錢 (Price): HK$330/ 9.6g
“Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15 is a finely milled powder composed completely of natural elements with 15 active amino acids to clear the skin of toxins, promote healthy skin cell growth and fight the aging process.”
(English: I usually use E.L.F. Kabuki Brush to apply this foundation.
On the brush:
使用次數 (No. of Usage): around 30 times
用 後感: 我之前用過Bare Ecentuals, 都係比較出名既礦物粉底. 但係香港無得買, 上網買又好難揀色, 所以唯有買香港買得到既礦物粉底啦. 呢隻野我見都好多人讚好, 所以我就買黎試下. 初初用覺得佢上面都算薄 (但係我記得Bare Ecentuals仲薄) 同好貼. 搽左佢之後會覺得皮膚好有光澤. 佢既遮暇力都唔錯, 遮到鼻位d紅, 同埋黑眼圈都遮到70%. 本身都覺得唔錯ga. 點知, 用用下我發現我用左呢隻foundation之後下午會出多左油, 同埋個foundation到3pm會變暗. 我諗可能因為當時天氣好熱, 所以會有d咁既情況, 所以我停左用佢. 呢期比較冬同埋乾, 我再拎出黎用, 我覺得變暗既情況無咁犀利, 但係都有. 之前佢會變暗兩度色 (好恐怖), 而家就變暗一度到啦. 出油既情況就無之前咁勁 (而家我乾到用咩都唔會出油). 咁我無理由浪費左jar野, 所以而家係返mama屋企食飯就用下佢 (去mama屋企我唔會full makeup, 多數都淨係用下粉底). 希望快d用完佢就算. 可惜丫, 其實我幾鍾意佢上面個effect, 但係會變暗我就真係接受唔到喇. 如果你地要買, 真係係counter試完行成日先再決定佢適唔適合你呀!
(English: After-use Comment: I used Bare Ecentuals a couple years back and it was one of the most famous mineral brand. But I couldn’t get it in Hong Kong and it would be hard for me to pick the right colors online, therefore, I decided to try something local. I read quite a few rave comments about this mineral powder from Laura Mercier and decided to give it a go. At first, I felt the foundation was light on skin (but Bare Ecentuals’ are even lighter) and it stayed close to skin. After applying this foundation, I found my skin more radiant. Also, its coverage was quite nice, it covered the red areas of my nose really well and for dark eye circles, I thought it covered up to 70% of them. So far so good right? Nah!!!!! After a few days of compliment on this product, I started noticing my skin secreted way more oil in the afternoon and the foundation oxidized (turns to a dark shade) at around 3pm. Well, then I blamed on the weather (it was hot and humid at that time), so I stopped using it for a few months. Now, since the weather is cold and dry, I took it out again and gave it a second chance. The way it oxidized becomes less serious. It turned two shades darker during the summer time (horrible!!), and now it turns one shade dark. And my skin doesn’t secrete any oil in the afternoon (well….this is due to the fact that my skin is so dry now, nothing can create oil on my skin). In order not to waste this item, I use it whenever I go back to mom’s place for dinner (usually I won’t have full makeup, I just have the foundation on and that’s it). I hope to finish this thing real soon!! What a pity! I indeed love how it looks on my skin, but I cannot accept foundations that oxidize! So, if you want to get this, make sure you try it on your face at the counter, and walk around for the whole day before making your decision!)

我真係失憶! 我一路都以為自己同大家share左以下呢隻sheet mask, 但係諗諗下又睇睇下發覺原來我咩都未講 (一定係我發夢寫左). 我之前同大家分享過我其中一隻彩豐行sheet mask, 我話佢都好, 不過有隻仲好 (回顧按此)! 咁係邊隻呢? 就係呢隻喇:
(English: Oh I am losing my memory! I thought I had shared with you on the following sheet mask, but after some investigation, I discovered that I hadn’t yet (must be that I wrote the piece in my dreams). I shared with you before on Carvier Collagen Sheet Mask from Choi Fung (refresh memory) and I said that there is another type which performs better than the Carvier one. So which one is it? *Spotlight please*)
C.L. Royal Vitamin A, C, E Mask 蜂皇納米維他命A、C、E全效急救蠶絲面膜
價錢 (Price): HK$65/ 5pcs
(English: Each piece is filled with 30ml Royal Jelly Essence, Vitamin A, C and E. With the use of nano technology, it gets absorbed into skin easily and immediately ease thirty and tired skin, making skin more vibrant and elastic.”
一打開真係超多精華, 塊布有係有少少透明, 成張mask都有好豐富既精華, 但係唔會滴野! 可以等皮膚慢慢吸收之餘, 又唔會整到周到都係. 唔錯 !
(English: When you first open the package, you’d see there is a lot of essence inside. The cloth is a bit transparent and filled with rich essence. When you use it on face, it won’t drip (so don’t worry). Your skin can take time in absorbing the essence without making everywhere messy! Thumbs-up!)
使用次數 (No. of Usage): 5 times
用 後感: 唔覺唔覺都用過好多sheet mask, 但係呢隻令我超級滿意. 頭先講過啦, 佢張mask真係好多精華, 多既程度係比得上SKII既Treatment Mask (用過你就明我講咩喇). 再加上佢個剪綵好貼面, 所以敷起上黎個感覺好舒服, 唔會話成日擔心張mask移位. 佢雖然精華多, 但係皮膚真係吸到. 我通常敷15mins就去過水. 我一過完水個感覺好似另一個人. 面色好左啦 (唔係白左, 但係d黃氣無sa), d毛孔無咁覺眼啦, 皮膚又變得柔軟左同埋滑左啦. 最重要當然係佢好保濕, 第二日都keep到, 同埋上妝覺得貼左同面無咩出油. 佢個effect都last到3-4日, 所以真係十個讚. 咁同埋佢都平民, 所以買同用都唔會令自己有心臟病! 我而家覺得自己好殘呀, 好乾呀都會敷佢! 呢隻我回購指數係100%! 我好少讚d野讚得咁好, 你地應該可以想像我有幾滿意啦 (我上次買得唔夠多, 而家計畫回購當中).
(English: After-use Comment: Well I have actually tried quite a few of sheet masks in my lifetime and I can say that this one really impress me! As mentioned earlier, the cloth is filled with rich essence and the amount is even comparable to SKII Treatment Mask (if you have used SKII before, you’d know what I am trying to say). Plus, the cutting of the cloth fits face perfectly, so when you actually feel comfortable when you are using it without worrying the mask would be moving around on your face. Even though it’s filled with tons of essence, the essence does get absorbed by skin. I usually rinse my face after 15 mins and I feel like I am another person after. It helps brightening up my face (not whiten, it kicks away the dullness on your skin for you), making my pores less visable, softening and smoothing my skin. Of course, the most important thing, it’s really hydrating coz on the next day when I put makeup on, I feel that the makeup stays closer and better on my skin and I don’t have much oil secretion. These amazing effects last around 3-4 days! Now you are not surprised why I love it so much! The best part is its price is really friendly, so you won’t have a heart attack each time when you use it or buy it! Now, I use it whenever I feel that my skin needs a quick fix or very dry! I am definitely repurchasing it! I seldom praise something so highly, so you could feel how happy I am to have found this product (well, I didn’t haul enough last time and I am indeed planning on restocking now).
