Pour Homme

23 years of waiting, finally, I got myself a bottle of perfume - Platinum Egoiste by Chanel (1993), perfume for men (Pour Homme) to be exact! LOL!!!!!!!


I think most of the people don't get it, why buy a perfume for men to myself? Me too, don't understand, why I'm so obsess to the smell of Platinum Egoiste. I don't even know what's its scent without google it.


My God - Gackt, uses this perfume ( I guess this helps to explain a bit why I'm totally crazy about this perfume.) and he buy them in cartons or something when he visits France. Crazy enough I know, and that makes me a bit curious, why Platinum Egoiste?


Me and my bunch of ji muisss went over to Chanel counter in Isetan KLCC when we were 17 years old to find out, what's so magical about Platinum Egoiste, until Gackt have to buy stock'em up in his wardrobe.


My my, belum try belum tahu, sudah try hari hari mahu!!! The smell is GOOD!!! Such powerful and totally not those over girly/feminine type of smell! I like it very much!!!


Since then, me and my friends always sneak to Chanel counter and try the sample of Platinum Egoiste. We often get a lot of testing cards and spray LOTS of it, so that we can store them inside our purses or books and get to smell the obsessing smell of Platinum Egoiste.


I remember there's once I even mistakenly sprayed the perfume into my friends mouth because we want to spray them on our school bags without letting those sales assistants caught us in action. Hahahahaha! Such fun memory with my bunch of ji muis and with Platinum Egoiste, I guess that's what make this perfume a special one to me.

*Super thanks to Bun's friend - SM for helping me to buy this bottle of perfume when he went over HK for family vacation. Thank you very much!!!*



Lots of people say that HK airport have the best deal in buying branded stuff, but no, it doesn't seem so. In Malaysia, the normal retail price for this perfume is RM250, and SM bought this at HK for 525HKD, around RM226, it means only about 10% discount.


If HK airport is not that cheap, why all China women going gaga over there for their shopping spree? Do not understand. -_-"



*The Double C. I can have Chanel. O.H M.Y G.O.D!!!*



Yes, I know, 200 hundred something is not something very expensive, but I have to think and think and think all over and over again to spend this 200 hundred. It's my hard earn money, I had dilemmas, thinking to spend them on myself or on my baby boy... But I guess I had already made my decision.


Am I a bad mother? Am I selfish? Sometimes I wonder, is it really necessary for me to own this or that in my life, spend on myself rather than for other family members. I have headache in making decisions.


Somehow, there's a lil voice in my heart saying: You're just a woman, you have to love yourself and pamper yourself sometimes. Life isn't only about others, how about you yourself?


Yeah, sometimes I forgot that, I have to love myself too.




Top Notes
Lavender, Rosemary, Petitgrain.


Middle Notes
Clary Sage, Geranium, Galbanum.


Base Notes
Vetiver, Cedarwood, Labdanum, Treemoss.





LOL! I don't even know what is Petitgrain, Clary Sage, Geranium, Galbanum, Vetiver, Labdanum and Treemoss!!! But yet, I love the smell! 


Am totally agreed with some of the reviewers saying that instead of just smelling 3 notes per layer like some other perfume, Platinum Egoiste totally showed us the combination of all layers of scent, creating a powerful yet confidence and fearlessness aura.



*My love.*


BEWARE: Do not try if you're one of the faint of heart, totally unbearable for those fearsome weaklings when it comes to powerful smells of perfume. ;)

Shop With A Reason

Reason, in another way is called 'Excuses'. An excuse for me to shop without feeling guilty and lighten the burden in my heart. What will be the most valid reason for me to shop? Yes, it will be 'Work related'.


I guess most of the girls who work in model/talent industry always facing the same problem: Clothes or shoes we have doesn't meet the requirement of clients, hence, we have to buy new skirt/pants/shoes to work. So before we got income, we already start spending some of the future salary.


That's why we always say: Money that come fast, go fast too. (When am I able to save money then??? T_T)


Anyway, bought these stuff recently, what a happy spending day for me. Spent over two hundred bucks on that day, and enjoyed lovely afternoon tea with my baby boy!




*I can haz French fries nails!!! Love French nails so much!!! RM5/each.*







*Bought the first pair of 'skinny' jeans in my life! Believe it or not!!!*







*Bought it at Forever21 for RM49. Sweeeet!*


Somehow the jeans run out of size I can't find my size, which is 25! So gotta deal with 27 since the next day I have to wear it to work. But still, the ankle area quite fitting and had some hard time to pull it out! LOL!


My friends thought it was at the bargain corner but no, I found this at the normal price section. Jeans section to be exact because there were like so many jeans around. Jeans, short jeans, jeans jacket etc etc.


I just love Forever21 for almost everything they sell inside, but why do they have to be this expensive? Can't even afford to buy a RM50 top at the bargain section! It's just a bit pricey to me. Gotta be a bit rationale in shopping tho.





*Baking Powder from Etude House, RM39.90*


I'm gonna bake my face! LOL! This is a pore cleansing cream and baking powder as ingredients I perhaps? Just apply on your face, massage all over your face, wipe it off and wash your face with cleanser! 


I know it sounds complicated but I think it's a good thing, at least I won't skip the 2nd time washing face routine after I remove my make-up. (Which is so bad to your skin.)




*Angelfit Perfect Concealer RM17.90(unsure!?)*


My ZA concealer is going to finish soon, bought this Maybelline's Angelfit concealer to try. (Sorry ZA!) It's used by so many models in Japan and Taiwan I think there's something special about it. 


I've tried this on and I love it!!! The colour blends in naturally and there are less fine lines underneath my eyes! User friendly and I can cover dark circles, spots and discolouration with just one apply. Super saving!!!


I think I just found my new love for concealer.



*Rubi Flats from Cotton On. RM49 for 2 pairs*


These are one comfortable flats! Super love the silver one with stars inner side but definitely not the black one! Gotta buy the black one for working purpose and now, it ends up become of the hardest shoes to match with outfits. No matter how I match, my legs with the black flats on will just end up look like a pair of aunty feets. FML!!!!


Or maybe I'm just too noob in matching style. Sigh.




*Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roll-On!!! RM19++*



Finally get to buy this this THISSSSS!!!! Happy happy! I've always thinking about give this roll-on type eye gel a try after saw Xiaxue's advertorials few years ago. Finally, I get to own one today! Yay! 


I don't have to use my hands to apply eye cream around my eyes anymore, and the metal rolling ball sooth my eyes with its coldness! I'm gonna wait for about two weeks to check whether my eye bags and dark circles got any improvement or not. Wait for my review ya!

Angry about Bun during that few days, hence that triggers me bring Xuan Xuan and went shopping at Pavilion. To me, it can consider my FIRST TIME bringing him along, alone to shopping malls. All I can say is: I will try my best not to bring him to shopping, alone.


He's so naughty there are times he wants to walk out from the changing room while I'm trying clothes, he refused to go to other places just because he's attracted by the display windows, he doesn't want to walk and doesn't want me to carry, so he just sit there on the floor.


Lots of incidents happened, and I have to be cool, stay calm and lower my voice and definitely can't raise my hand and put on an action blockbuster movie in the mall. Gah! God knows how I felt!!!!


After 2 hours walking around, he told me he want to eat something.... Yes! It's time to rest a while and feed something good into our tummy. As one of the revenge to Bun, I chose Starbucks as our rest station! (Yes, because Bun bloody hate Starbucks! Muahahahahahahaha!)


And another response to our impulsive choice of rest station, I ordered one Chocolate cupcake!!! God knows how happy and syok maximus I were when I'm savour-ing all the chocolatey delicacies.



*Xuan Xuan's FIRST Starbucks yum cha session! He's one lucky boy to drink Chocolate Chip Frappuccino with cream so early in his age! I had mine when I was 15 years old!*





*I guess he loves it like how I am!*





*Chocolate Cupcakes. RM5.50. And I wonder why they have to make the swirl designs on the top of it. It surely does look like comic style poo to me. Haha!*





*He conquered my Chocolate Frap!!!!!! Give me back my Chocolate Frap!!!!*






*Wonder what he's thinking.... Chocolate Frappuccino too delicious for him? LOL!*



Bun come to pick us up at Pavilion and without letting me know, he went to meet his friends, dinner and yum cha. I had a hard time that day to withstand the naughty-ness of Xuan Xuan for the whole day, ALONE!!!! Going to ki siao soon!!!!


*Damn jia lat la budak ini, totally out of behave while we're yum cha-ing at Asia Cafe. He played with almost everything that's on the table, including plates, ice, water, mug etc etc! The only time that he can sit properly without move around much is when he's enjoying eating french fries.*





*Bun's friends... Long time no see. LOL!*





*Cheersssss!!! (No, I don't drink, I just take photos. LOL!)


I should just concentrate on my work stuff and forget about shopping in the near future. But..... but...... Malaysia's Mega Sale is coming! OMG!!!! Can or can't I resist the attraction of low price bargain at various shops?


Definitely need some help to stop me from going out to shopping malls. Lock me up please!!!
