My wish list

Finally, something big is gonna happen in 2 weeks!! It is a day where everyone will try to tolerate with you for what you want. It is a day you can have good food without paying. It is a day where you can ask for something without feeling shy. And, it will be a day you might be filled up with lot of cakes if you have different gang of friends! I guess you guys are brilliant, surely able to catch what I'm trying to say!~!

Yeah, my birthday is coming soon~ Well, for somebody's birthday, especially when the person is close with you, you might feel headache for what to buy. Choosing a present requires skill. To get a right present, you need to know what he/ she likes or needs.

However, some of my friends just skip the step by using a very easy way, a way that never goes wrong. Ask straight forward. Some of my friend doesn't like to crack their head to look for a risky present where I might or might not like it. Therefore, 21 century style is to ask directly and get the right thing in a short time. Good, right?

For those of you who are preparing present for me (syok sendiri.. later nobody gives me present ), you can refer to the wish list below.

1) Origins eye serum with mushroom ingredient

I am having serious dark circle problem and I have tried a few brands, from cheap to expensive. Yet, I can't find a eye gel/ eye serum which is effective for me. So, I joined a forum in and I found that quite a numbers of people strongly recommended this eye serum from origins with mushroom ingredient. Please.. save me out from transforming into panda by donating me this to me. By the way, I was stunned when I saw the price..

2) Nokia N95 original battery

Nokia N95 is a very powerful handphone (at least for me) with multifuction. You can do so much things with it, 3G, wifi, dictionary, FM radio, 5 megapixel camera, music player... However, the battery life span for this handphone sucks. My phone was bought 1 year plus ago. I am not a heavy user, but my handphone lasted merely half day now (half day usage just for normal sms / phone calling and without using FM radio/ camera/ music player) . Some of you might say, change the battery with a pirated one. Well, I did but the pirated battery sucked even more badly. A handphone battery is weird as a present but I don't mind receiving it :P

3) Liquid eye liner (Black)

Recently I found the difference between liquid eye liner and pencil eye liner. Liquid eye liner can really make your eyes so lively, big, dolly, especially when you use this with false lashes. Recently I had tried Kate, Maybelline, Loreal. I think they are quite good.

4) Eye shadow (Maybelline/MJ/Kate/ etc)

Previously, I used to buy single colour eye shadow. Recently I found out those eye shadow with a few colour which is from light to dark (for example, light brown, brown, dark brown) is easier to apply as compared to single colour. Well, I have purple colour series colour already. Looking for other colours like brown, blue or green.

5) Eye brown pencil

This item never appear in my cosmetic box. Just found out it is needed sometimes. prefer brown/ grey colour.

6) Mirror~

For those of you who had entered my room might find that my room does not have a mirror (Except for a small 1). One of my friend came my house to make up before a wedding dinner. Of course, make up need a mirror right? Before she got into trouble of no mirror situation, I told her 'Sorry, my room doesn't have any standing mirror. So, please bring a mirror." Oh, terrible right? This situation might be weird for some girls- girl's room without mirror. Therefore, I'm looking for a full size mirror which can be hang/ stand on floor.

7) Necklace
Looking for platinum necklace because I have a pendant. Well, it is very expensive. But I still want to include it in my wish list :P Besides, actually I am looking for a long necklace with pendant also (of course this is not platinum la). Long necklace is always nice with simple shirt.
8) Purse

I am looking for a nice purse since few centuries ago. My purse is going to worn off very soon. Yet, I cannot get a wallet that I want. My wallet must consists of pocket for siling and I prefer a short type purse. Please.. help me save my time, my energy to search for a perfect wallet, just buy one that you feel it is nice for me.

9) Water Proof Mascara
I already have a mascara (Loreal) but the effect is not really nice and it is not easy for me to remove it after applying. Therefore, I am looking for a new mascara with better effects (thick & elongated) and easy to remove. Some people recommended Maybelline volume Express, Some recommended MJ. What do you think?

10) Hair curler

I am not really desperate to get this. Sometimes, I see some of my friends curled their hair temporarily looks nice. So, if you wish to see me in curly hair, just sponsor me this. :P

10) Clothes/ hand bag/ etc

I think i need a handbag as well where my current handbag looks 'old' and quite dirty already. Preferably a handbag with zip.

I know some of the items listed are a bit costly. So, any presents out the lists that you give I'll still appreciate. Don't worry. Hehe..

But, below two items are not advisable for my present!!

1) Teddy bear/ soft toy

Well, although I still look young, but I am no longer age 17, 18. This is very cute, adorable, but it serves no purpose for me anymore. My normal reaction after received is putting them in my wardrobe to prevent it getting dirty.

2) Decoration stuffs

When I saw decoration stuffs, dust appears in my mind. Then, it will be followed by cleaning. Then fatigue follows. That's all.

Wah, finally I wrote a long list. Counting down for my birthday ~~

Taiwan Trip

I went to Taiwan with my family during the Raya Holiday. For those of you who was not able to contact me during that time, this was the reason. This was the first oversea trip that all my family members went together and this was a trip which was decided suddenly. How sudden was it? My father gave me a call on Wednesday and told me that on the following Monday we will be going to Taiwan. Without any hesitation, I applied leave immediately and my leave was exhausted for this year. (By the way, I had only left 4 1/2 days leave for this year). My manager pulled her long face when she knew about my trip. Well, perhaps the time was a bit improper and it was a bit rush to suddenly leave my job for 1 week. But chance to go to a trip with the whole family didn't come always and a chance to go Taiwan did not happen always too. That's why, I didn't hesistate on this decision.

That was 1 week trip in Taiwan, we went to Tai Zhong and Tai Pei. We were not able to enjoy the first few days due to this was a business trip for my father. One of his friend became our tour guide after the business trip had ended. We visited some places and it was hard to explain everything here so let me just pick up some of the points to elaborate on.
The first thing that we noticed there were a lot of 7-11 available all over Taiwan. How many were there? Every row of shops must at least have one 7-11. Besides, their 7-11 is quite different with ours.

There were different kind of food like sandwich, rice box with different flavours and etc available. You can have a quick grab of food in 7-11. It served faster than fast food. Don't worry, the food in 7-11 was delicious and there were a lot of varieties.

Lok Lok can even be found in 7-11. Never see in Malaysia, right? In addition, Taiwanese can do a lot of stuffs in 7-11, for example, pay for summons, pay for car park fees and etc. Of course, 7-11 opens 24 hours, so it was very convenient for people and there was no excuse for not paying summon/ car park fees due to inconvenience.
We went to the famous ferris wheel in Taipei. 美丽华百货摩天轮. It was similiar with our Eyes on Malaysia but it is higher than ours. Why? Cause the Ferris Wheel is above a shopping mall...

Looks scary, right? We were very scared when we sat in the passengers gondola. We sat still without big movement and worried that our movement might shake the gondola and unexpected incident will happen. Luckily, the Final Destination did not use ferris wheel as a scene in their movie. Or else, more imagination would appeared in our mind. When we took a ride in the ferris wheel, it was during the night. The view outside with lighting was very nice, colour of the wheel kept on changing and the glimmer of the light outside created a romantic atmosphere. However, the person sharing the gondola with me was my brother, so the romantic feel did not extend further.

Besides, we went to the famous 'Sun and Moon lake' (日月潭). A place where almost all the travel agent would bring you there. Do not have high expectation on it. It was just like what it sounded - a lake. Wearing their traditional costume to snap photograph is one of the attraction.
Of cause, 101 mall is a must go place. We have no chance to enter the mall due to insufficient time. So, we just took a photo outside.
Tonight the internet is rather slow. It is a bit difficult and time consuming to post up photos. So, that was the end of the blog. If I have the time, there will be episode 2 for Taiwan Trip.
