Empro Goody Bag


Remember that I have attended a training session by Empro a few of weeks ago? I was notified by Anna that there will be a goody bag for me and it’s ready for collection last Tuesday. I went to collect it on the next day. During my collection, I also met Mr Coco Alex,¬† the founder of Empro but I totally forgot to grab a picture with him! He was really nice to ask me if anybody served me, seeing that I’m waiting and standing in front of the outlet with my mum. I was excited to receive the goody bag and already peeked and inspected what inside right after I left the outlet silly. Let’s see what’s inside.

Bunch load of goodies! Let me show you the details of each product.

Doll Lash in DH003, this may appear natural when you wear it because of the invisibility of the lash band. Suitable for day or night, casual or occasionally.

Doll Lash DS006, this gives a little volume. The thin lash band may also make as though they are your natural lashes. Suitable for day or night, casual or occasionally.

Doll Lash DN008, this lashes gives greater length with mixture of alternate short and long lashes. Suitable on most occasion, depending on individuals.

Doll Lash DC003, mixture of criss-cross and extreme long straight lash at the end. I believe this gives both volume and length but the length is extreme. Mostly suitable for occasions.

Doll Lash DD001, has same lash pattern as DN008 but with small gold rhinestones near the lash band. Suitable in many occasions, depends on individual.

Two small tubes of Beauty & Eye Eyelash Adhesive. I have not try this yet and I don’t know why they have two different color of screw caps. Maybe the white one dries off clear and the other is black?

Doll Lash Curler, of course to curl your lashes!

Empro Triangular Ebrow Pencil, yes the lead is in triangular shape. This eyebrow pencil promises to provide two easy step application for eyebrows.

Empro Black Diamond Liner, able to line eyes precisely with it’s fine tip. I really wanted to try this so much!

I would like to thank Empro for providing me these wonderful goodies and I’ll definitely make use of them.

For Malaysians, you’ll be able to get from Empro outlets, Sasa, Guardian or Watsons.

For Indonesians, outlets are available in Jakarta.

For International readers, you may inquire by contacting them through their website, here.

Post Belated Birthday ^.^

Hey, it was my birthday on the 7th of this month. It falls on Wednesday and everyone had to work, so no heavy celebration. But my lovely BF bought me a top rated and recommended cake from Secret Recipe! The Chocolate Mud Cake.

There you go, a whole big cake of it. I had luxury breakfast with this cake the next morning too! He brought it back to my house and I get to celebrate it with my family. In my family tradition, we only celebrate our Chinese birth dates on the Lunar Calendar. The cake is quite a big present for me but I gotten greedy and took more stuff back home.

On the left is the MNG tote bag I have redeemed using the coupon from Cleo Magazine April 2010 and next to it is Wales 130 Eye Shadow Palette which I had purchase from Ebay. Let me show you the close up of these two lovelies.

The MNG bag is in canvas material with its full name MANGO and on the inside is it has the army pattern. If I flipped the bag from inside to outside, it makes a good army tote bag.

This palette is something I have been longing for. 130 pieces of eyeshadow in just one palette. What can I ask more? It comes with matte and shimmer eye shadows. I tried some of the colors palette just last weekend, its very pigmented and long lasting. I definitely recommend this seller, glamlabel. The shipping was faster than I expected and the price reasonable. I ordered on the 30th March and it arrived nicely on my birthday, 7th April.

I also bought these two lovely bracelets. Both of them is very pretty and one says ‘ I wish you have a good luck’.

The next day I received a package from June. It was so thoughtful and sweet of her. Let me list down what she posted:
1. iNuovi Incredible Lash Curler
2. Eau Thermale Avene Protective Hydrating Cream sample
3. The Face Shop Aqua Drop Sleeping Pack sample
4. Etude House Tear Drop Lash [WISH LIST GRANTED ALERT!]
5. Skin Food Tomato Whitening Emulsion sample
6. iNuovi Lip Definitityin Bare 10701
7. Chuncaini Soft Mold in Hydrotheraphy in Fresh Flowers Powder
8. Chuncaini 24K The Active Golden Magnolia Oil Bright Skin America Face Facial Mask

It was very very sweet of her to send me this package full of goodies, however one of the product was damage during the shipping. I blame the postman or whatever process for the package to come to me.

The lash curler is completely out of shape. It has been pressed from the side and it can’t even fit to crimp my lashes at all. My BF manage to bend it to be normal again but of course there’s still some malfunction.

This picture was taken by Mina, one of my readers. She remembered how much I heart sakura flowers. I think this is very beautiful and thanks a lot for taking this wonderful picture for me. This picture is originally up in my Facebook. Interested to read the comments? Click here.

Once again I want to thank everyone who sent thoughtful wishes in my Facebook and my cell phone, all the thoughtful gift and the heart to remember my birthday. I will have another post on where I had dinner with my BF soon. The place is just amazing and many other country has it too. I shall give a hint, this place was once visited by Michael Jackson when he was here in Kuala Lumpur.

I’m very happy and contented for this birthday, I wish everybody in great health, luck and happiness!

Recovering…

…I seriously didn’t know how to start…

I know I have abandon this blog for some time (more than a month?). I’m really sorry for those who are waiting patiently for new posting and tutorials. I’m stressed with work even my colleagues could feel it for me but I’m holding on pretty well. Things had went from bad to worse, not just from working.

Last week, I got myself into food poisoning. I had to take medical leave for more than a week. It’s not just light food poisoning where after vomiting or diarrhea, see the doctor, take the meds and be okay. I wasn’t one of them. Let me share with you full details about it. You may skip this, it will be a long story.

DAY ONE
It was a lovely Monday and my colleague and I made a take away of chicken rice for lunch. I always love their chilly sauce that comes with it. Later on, my stomach doesn’t feel so well and started to have diarrhea after a few hours. It’s bad enough that I have diarrhea but the toilet on my office level is on maintenance¬† and I had to take the elevator up to the next three floors just to use the toilet. Luckily, not long after it’s time to go home after work. On the way back home, I started to throw up at the street side. It’s a bad sign and I went home to rest. My BF came to see my resting on my bed and mum got to know about it. Things has gotten worse later at night, so I decided to visit the clinic and next day I’m on medical leave. I tried to get some sleep to rest my body. At about 1:00AM, I started vomiting again almost every one to two hours until about 9:00AM. The sickness is bad enough and now I didn’t get enough rest.

DAY TWO
I get rested for a couple of hours and had my father to send me to my family doctor. I feel better after the medication, all the vomiting and diarrhea stopped completely. I thought I would recover soon. One thing about me and my siblings, we could only visit this family doctor, other doctor medications doesn’t work well for us. I rested well till the next morning.

DAY THREE
Things had definitely gone wrong, I feel weak and feverish. I told my father I needed those fever patch but it didn’t work. I felt so weak that I started hunch walking. I didn’t have the appetite to eat, slept till afternoon but nothing was better. My father then brought me to my family doctor again. Thermometer showed 103.5 Fahrenheit, high fever. He said I most probably caught an infection that causing me to have high fever. I can’t even sit straight, I had to lay down on the bench in the clinic. The fever went off after the medication, mum was relieved that I’m getting better. Everything went bad again starting by 7:00PM, I started vomiting again. Anything that goes into my mouth will come out in seconds even a sip of water. Within 2 hours, I had throw up for more than 10 times. Mum decided to get me admitted to the hospital. I landed myself at the emergency room. They put me on drip quickly as my body was dehydrated. Later, I’m warded and I had to take oral medication which is very difficult for me at that point of time. My vomit hasn’t stop. It was a rough night where my parents and BF was there to company me. My BF stayed later to be with me as this is the first time for him to see me being admitted to the hospital. I was really hopeless that night.

DAY FOUR
My condition has improved, the vomit and diarrhea stopped but still very weak. I had to go through x-ray and ultrasound. I started to consume more water at this point and bad thing is I had to walk back to the ward myself after all the imaging. My parents was saying it was very inappropriate because the chances of me fainting on the way back is very high, I should have some company but everything is fine. I walked back to the ward safely. I tried to eat, manage to eat just a few mouth. Late evening, my parents and BF came to visit me.

DAY FIVE
The x-ray and ultrasound report was clean. The struggle with my stomach a couple days back left me some pain. I told the doctor about the pain and he arranged on doing an endoscopic procedure (where a mini camera will go into your stomach). I tried to push myself to eat more but I ended up eating more fruits. For the endoscopic procedure, I had to fast from midnight till the next morning for it. I’m pretty nervous about the procedure although I was told that sedative will be given. I couldn’t sleep well that night.

DAY SIX
Time to go for the endoscopic procedure. I’m really nervous. Before proceeding, another nurse came in to take samples of my blood. I had my nail polishes on and the nurses had to remove them for me. For that one moment, I felt a bit like a princess. The reason for removing the nail polishes is because they want to make sure there’s a blood flow and some signs can be seen through the nails. The nurses then pushes the whole bed to the operating theater. I felt really naked as I’m not wearing anything but a piece of red checkered cloth on my body. I’m getting more nervous as though I’ll be getting an operation. When I was alone, I started tearing. I had some silly thoughts that what if I never make my way out from the operating theater. Call me crazy but these kind of thoughts really flashed through my mind. The procedure was really fast, about 10-15 minutes. The moment I got into the special room fully equipped with all the things that they need, the room felt cold and silent. I had to drink some liquid for it to remove excess gas in my stomach, sprayed on anesthetic into my throat. That is the first ever time for me that swallowing my saliva is so difficult. I’m trying so hard to feel my throat.The nurse then injected sedative into my body and I saw my doctor to do the endoscopic. They told me to sleep on my side and within 5 minutes, I’m out. When I woke up, everything is done. I guess it’s not too scary at all. Then the nurses send me back to my ward. I just take my rest but I still feel I needed company. Not long after that I see my BF right in front of my eyes, I was crying all the way hugging him, telling him how scared I am.

DAY SEVEN
The endoscopic report did not come clean. The doctor found that some part of my stomach is inflamed. It is either from the vomiting or previous gastric pain that I left not taken care of. There’s no ulcers at all which is good or else I’ll be on medication for two months. My blood test didn’t come clean too, my pancreas was affected from the food poisoning infection. So I’m on new anti-biotic for my drip. I don’t want to stay in the hospital anymore. I just miss so much things out of hospital.

DAY EIGHT
The nurse took my blood sample again and this time my pancreas show some improvement. Doctor gave me a choice of staying in the hospital or leave. I chose to leave because I know I’ll be better and this is with the doctor’s approval. At last, I’m out from hospital. Although my BF came to visit me everyday, I still miss him a lot. I miss my cat, Coffee. When I was sick at home, she was there watching over me. I knew it because I saw her all the time although she sleeps like a pig at times. The doctor really wants me to rest, he has given me medical certificate for an extra of a week. I’m still on medication until my next appointment with the doctor.

It was a very long weekend. I try to relax myself, walk around, shop for a bit and etc., but I’m back at work today. My MC ends next week but my work load will pile up like a mountain if I don’t get it done. I’m getting better, eating¬† and drinking well. I just want to update after so long. Some friends left messages to me saying that they miss my entries and tutorials. I miss doing them too but the new camera hasn’t arrive. Brother didn’t have the money to replace one yet. I’m yet to give him a help on that. I have loads to share with everyone.

More Than Just A Package

I would say this is still a surprise package even though I’ve already expected it to come. Some time last week or the week before, I was chatting with Patty (the owner of PattyBelle.com). She told me that she had tried a mask for acne and she would love to send some to me and have me to review it. I agreed to her and expecting some small seal-able bag samples. The package arrived yesterday.

The package was a little big and heavier than I expected. Sky Net delivery boy actually contacted me before sending this in front of my house but I couldn’t pick up the call. I was at work~ I was so excited to open it after I came back from work.My stressful day has been taken off a lot.

Look! She sent me so many lovely things. I was overwhelmed with all the beauty luxuries right in front of my eyes. Let’s see in details what she has sent me.

DIY 4 in 1 Mask set, where there’s a cute mask bowl in jelly type form which makes it very flexible (the bowl is not in defect), spatula, mask brush, and three measuring spoons(so cute!).
A handmade bag which is so pretty! I can’t really remember the exact name of this bag.

Two small pieces Purple Gromwell and Roselle Handmade Soap sample.

Organic Beauty Bank Aloem Rose Gel Conditioning Mask and Shenos Exfoliation Gel.

Two boxes of full size Miracle Mask

I mean she was too generous. I love that everything was so well packed because the soap sample was packed in a gift wrap with cherry tape and the DIY 4 in 1 Mask set was in the handmade bag. I shall review on above products, so stay tuned! By the way, if you’re already interested on these products, you may purchase them at PattyBelle.com. Thank you so much for this great gift, Pat! You made my day and reminded me the joy of opening gifts. Gifts are always full of surprises.

p/s: I didn’t like the picture quality in this entry, I only use my phone camera to take this. I’m a person who have a little knowledge on photography, so I’m a little particular on the pictures I’ve taken. These pictures are just not up to my satisfaction. Can’t wait for the new camera~
