K-Movie Review | Architecture 101 - Enroll me into Architecture

Korean Movie, Suzy, Uhm Tae Woong, Han Ga In, Reviews

The main reason which initiated me watching this movie last night was the opening scene from Radio Romance where Kim Soo Hyun's character says:

We were all somebody's first love. You, and you too. During that time, we were all a boy or a girl in love, and we could have been someone's first love.Dear listeners of Mi Nu's Happy 6pm, today, Wrap it up. Are you ready to go back to when you were someone's first love?"

Those lines really struck me and I guess, here I am, writing a not-so-review-like review.

Travel | Finding Your Zen In Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden

Hong Kong, Travel, Discover Hong Kong, free things to do in Hong Kong
As a frequent visitor of Hong Kong, I am ashamed to say that it was my first time visiting Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden however, from now on I am determined to visit this place every time I visit HK because it's an absolute gem and perfect for any instragram shots or any photography as  everything is worth capturing. Best of all, this is absolutely free!

The following photos were taken in summer so all the plants were blooming with different hues of green blending into one another surrounding a magnificent koi pond . A complete contrast from the hustling live of Hong Kong, instead, a serene a peaceful gem creating a form of escapism from the stressful daily lives. 

Forever Hibernating 2017- The Reversal

Hi... I guess I'm back?!

If you're reading this and you're unfamiliar with who I am, I shall introduce myself as Carmen.

A lactose intolerant who loves all things dairy. Marketing Management undergraduate who hasn't gotten food poisoning...yet! Crisps addict with a weakness for potato products because potatoes are the god of all vegetables. Chopsticks are the superior utensil of all kitchen utensils. Bilingual in English and Cantonese but apparently I have a strong British accent in my Cantonese- who knows anymore?

I hope you get a better picture of who I am :)  

I'm ready to return to return to this blog after taking multiple breaks throughout the year due to different changes in my life like a-levels, travelling and university. I can officially say I'm back to working on this blog as my creative outlet but this blog definitely needs a rebrand because as I've grown older, my interests have inevitably change so I want this blog to correlate this. 

Products ready for their bye byes

I've always wanted to write a post about product empties, confirming that I've finally used up the product and that my impulse purchases have been worthwhile. As a result, it has led to months of endless hoarding of empty product tubes and products destined for the bin.

You may feel like this is an inadequate amount of empties that I have accumulated but it's due to the fact that I instinctively throw finished products into the bin before I can think  about this blog post. I finally feel like it's time that they make their journey into the bin instead of hogging a drawer space where I can put other goodies, am I right?

No- Sebum Mineral Powder - Innisfree
Not entirely cheap as chips but it's still a bargain. I've already repurchased backups as the products do exactly what it's meant to do with no faults therefore it's only imperative that I repurchase this product.

Dream Touch Lumi Concealer - Maybelline
When I was getting interested in makeup, I bought this product thinking it was for spot concealing however, when i got home and plastered it onto my face I realised the product had a salmony tinge, being naive I thought the product had gone out of date.

A few month later and the discovery of colour correcting and the right purpose of this product, I was able to use it up swiftly.

AC Clean Up Cushion - Etude House

This was my favourite cushion foundation amongst those that I purchased from my haul post which I posted last year here

Wake Me Up Concealer - Rimmel

It started to smell funny, out it goes!

24hr Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate and Pink Gold
Considering there was a layer of fine dust on top of these cream shadows and I had to physically blow off the plume of dust and the cream could be mistaken as cement for your house so I think it's time to say our goodbyes.
