From the top view (which cannot be seen here), it reveals a Mickey Mouse shaped stage with three projector screens and staircase that is incorporated with the Grand Musical  Staircase. Reminiscence the past, Berjaya Times Square was opened since 2003 and I lived nearby, I have witnessed all since they were constructed. It feels nostalgic yet happy and proud that Berjaya Times Square had made this far.

Suria Meriang Staff Sales 2013 & Hauls

Found out about Suria Meriang Staff Sales through Fiona of Street-Love.net and she said, “I went there at 5:30am last year”. Say whaaaaaat??? Never come across my mind to go shopping as early as that. I have never been to this sales before but I heard a lot of how great the deals can be and I definitely would love to go for it! Pardon the low quality photos, I was just using my phone and it was quite dim at the Grand Ballroom of Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel.

Suria Meriang Staff Sale 2013 Ticket

Thanks Fiona (if you’re reading this)!!! We arrived about 6am-ish at the third row of the queue, holy cow. There is another row of VIPs which we aren’t sure how people could get those tickets and they entered to the sales about 20-30 minutes earlier. Any idea anyone?

What to expect from this sales?

Since there is so many people, stocks are really limited. Once I have entered the hall, I just grabbed whatever I was interested, put it in the bag (plastic bag was given) and go on with other brands. I happened to let go a few items that I thought it was not so worth it. Do bare in mind, because people get so impatient during the sales, they will knock or step on you without apologizing.

Suria Meriang Staff Sale 2013 & Hauls 2

Some anxious shoppers screamed right when the doors are open making everyone stood up quickly and start moving. Look at the crowd, its crazy! Apparently some shoppers tried to cut our queue just because we were moving more on the left side and yes, they were trying to cut on the right. They didn’t make it so clear of their motive but I guess they get us when we got back at the center and start saying ‘cut queue’ repeatedly. These girls do have to learn some manners. First come first serve, this ain’t no wet market y’all! I forgot snap any photos inside because I was busy doing my roundings on what to purchase.

Brands that was offered during the sales was Bobbi Brown (makeups), MAC (makeups), Clinique (skincare, makeups & fragrances), Origins (skincares), DKNY (fragrances), Coach (fragrances), Tommy Hilfiger (fragrances), Aramis (fragrances), Estee Lauder (skincare, makeup & fragrances).  I’m not a huge spender but I did picked up some items. Plus,  because I have to allocate some expenses for a trip end of this month.

Suria Meriang Staff Sale 2013 & Hauls - Bobbi Brown Cool Lilac Long-Wear Eye Collection

Bobbi Brown Cool Lilac Long-Wear Eye Collection

I believe this collection was last year’s. The reason I picked this is because I wanted to try their cleansing oil and gel liner. What makes this set much more worth it is that it comes with a dual-ended brush. This set is for MYR100.00 and let’s see closely onto each product.

Also, a card to redeem complimentary makeup lesson and personalized face chart with Bobbi Brown. I also took a set of four of MAC In Extra Dimension Eye Shadows for MYR100.00. It was manufactured in 2011 and each of the eye shadows retails at MYR85.00. The eye shadows I took here are weighed at 2grams/0.07oz each, there is another set of the same range of eye shadow at the same price but lighter in weight. Let’s see what shade that I have here.

Suria Meriang Staff Sale 2013 & Hauls - DKNY Be Delicious Love Paris Limited Edition

DKNY Be Delicious Love Paris Limited Edition (blue)

I bought this for my BF because his birthday is in May and although this is a chic perfume, I thought the scent is still suitable for him because the scent is very elegant and sophiscated. Hey, this perfume can be unisex, doesn’t have to be for women only. I bought this for MYR115.00 and wrapped it immediately, gave him on that evening when I see him. He didn’t want to open it until the next day.

I’m totally looking forward for next year’s sales, hopefully I can get another an extra ticket for my BFF because she’s crazy in love with Bobbi Brown. I wasn’t aware that Bobbi Brown joined the sale and I reckon that I might haul more next year too. Will see how it goes, anyone else went to the sales?

 

Beauty Hauls from Australia!

Wondered how I get some haul from Australia when I have been in Kuala Lumpur all the time? Nothing new, I had a friend who understand for my craze over beauty goodies and he shared with me a site called, Catch of The Day Australia. Basically, its a site that offers different daily deals from household items, sports, apparels and beauty goods. Almost everyday they offer different deals and beauty deals doesn’t come often. My friend was really nice to offer to purchase it for me and bring all the goodies when he comes back to Malaysia. I didn’t purchase too much and they are all in sets which I think is always worth the money. Plus, most of them are not available in Malaysia.

Fusian Beauty 2x The Plump Set

The first set is Fusion Beauty 2X The Plump set for AUD10.00.

Fusian Beauty 2x The Plump Set 2

Fusion Beauty is known for its lip plumper but I never know about the mascara. They come in deluxe travel size.

L'oreal Pastel Heaven Makeup Pack

The second set here is one of the worthy set. It’s the L’oreal ‘Pastel Heaven’ Makeup Pack for AUD26.04.

L'oreal Nail Polish in Charmed I'm Sure & I Pink I'm In Love

Two L’oreal Nail Polishes of Charmed I’m Sure and I Pink I’m in Love.

L'oreal Colour Juice in Golden Splash & Sugar Coated

Two L’oreal Colour Juice in Golden Splash and Sugar Coated. They remind me  a lot of Lancome Juicy Tubes.

L'oreal Volume Perfect Lipstick

Two of L’oreal Volume Perfect Lipstick in Sumpt Scarlet. It comes with a base and lip color.  I believe this is an older version of lip infallible?

L'oreal Le Kohl Pencil Smooth Defining Eyeliner in Smoke

L’oreal Le Kohl Pencil Smooth Defining Eyeliner in Smoke.

L'oreal Hip Concentrated Shadow Duo in Mischief

L’oreal Hip Concentrated Shadow Duo in Mischief. This is highly raved by tons of makeup junkies!

I know this could be frustrating that these are not available in Malaysia unless seeking for sprees. I just wanted to share that what the site offers ain’t too bad and if you have any friends who is in other country, it will be a good chance for you to ask for help.

 

Which of these makeup caught your attention?

The Women’s Weekly’s Shopping Weekend @ Parkson 1 Utama

It is as early at 10am on a Saturday, tons of people were gathering at the Ground Floor entrance of Parkson 1Utama.  Say what? It’s The Weekly’s Shopping Weekend, the most anticipating shopping event jointly hosted by The Malaysian Women’s Weekly and Parkson.

I don’t want to be left out and went there with BFF to join the fun. It is a shopping event with exclusive deals for The Weekly readers. The invite above is attached along with The Malaysian Women’s Weekly magazine of October 2012 issue. It was held at Parkson 1 Utama just last Saturday and Penang will be on this coming Saturday, 13th October. 

Wondering why tons of people queued patiently? There were free goodie bags worth MYR200 to be given away to only for the first 1,000 readers. First come first serve basis and only one redemption per person. Its an open event where anyone could join as long as you have the invitation and The Weekly team has been thoughtful by setting up a booth selling the magazine. Everyone could join in immediately!

The exclusive discounts were up to 50% and more on selective items. Some of the deals has already been printed out on the invitation, readers get to peek on the deals first. At the same time, beauty pampering sessions are all over including basic makeover by Kanebo for first 50 who registered, Kosé full makeover + photoshoot (photo printed for participants) with the purchase of MYR180 and above, eye mask pampering session by Talika and there’s maybe more that I might have missed out.

Spin the wheel with the most of your luck and instantly win a mystery gift! One receipt per spin and prizes are from selective category from beauty, fashion, food and beverage.

Not to forget the lucky draw! With any purchase of a single receipt, shoppers will just have to fill in the lucky draw form to get themselves to participate the draw. The most attractive prize for this? It’s the Burberry fragrance set  worth MYR500 and only ten  per location for grabs! Four shoppers will be selected in every hour.

There was also special demo of Philip Avent Steamer & Blender where it steams the food and blend till its fine enough and suitable for baby consumption. There were samples given away and don’t judge from the bland colours, its actually delicious!

On the other side, another beauty pampering session spotted. It’s the Bloop Nail Art where many were trying their magnetic nail polish and I had mine done too. The only thing I wished for was some seats for people who were waiting, it was a little tiring to wait and it also cluttered the walkway.

The final lucky draw was at 6pm and some shoppers returned with the hope of bringing something back home. Prizes includes the Burberry fragrances, hot pink tote bag with organizer from Gin & Jacqie and products from Célmonze.

The final prize is a Carlo Rino shoulder handbag won by Ms Cerlyn!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

The next venue will be at Parkson Gurney Plaza, Penang on this Saturday (13 October). Don’t miss it out and grab this month’s The Malaysian Women’s Weekly magazine or you could always purchase on the spot at the venue. I have a feedback from one of my readers saying,


The event was a great chance for many readers to get some goodies alongside pampering themselves. Its also a great time to see how well MWW organized their event. They ensure there is a queue and prepared a counter for people to buy their magazine last minute. Extra goodies and lucky draw for people who purchase makes it an even more unforgettable deal. – Angel Kee
