I'm so happy now! In fact, I'm thrilled because I just bought a Laneige makeup set! Laneige is from Korea. It consists of 3 mini lipsticks, and 4 shimmery eyeshadows. I decided to buy this set because I loved the colors. The lipsticks are pinkish (3 different shades) and I think would go well with my complexion. I'm Chinese and have a kinda medium tone skin. I'm not too dark but I'm not really fair either. I suppose you could call me medium fair; but not dark enough to be olive.
This set set is only available during this Christmas season and already the one I bought is the 2nd last set! The salesgirl told me that these Christmas sets sell very fast and they have very limited stocks! Already this is the first day of the Christmas sales but the sets have already started selling before the official start of the Christmas sales. I'm glad that I booked my set the moment I saw the catalog ads!!!!
Well, that's Laneige! I saw another offer from Estee Lauder. You only get to purchase this set only if you buy something else (purchase with purchase). This set is more value for money, I suppose (8 matte eyeshadows, one full sized lipstick, one lip pencil, and a few other things); but you can only purchase this set for an additional RM120 only if you spend like RM200+ first on something else. So, in total, you will have to spend at least RM300! I can't justify spending that much money on vanity items! LOL! But my Laneige set only cost me RM120 only without other conditions and I got some free samples for the BB cushion foundation as well; as well as small bottles of the toner and moisturiser (one each).
I suppose the Estee Lauder offer was more value for money. But I prefer the Laneige colors better. And with the Estee Lauder package, you will need to spend like 3 times more (because if I pick the Estee Lauder offer, I will most probably buy a bottle of perfume for like RM300 plus!!!! And then get the makeup set for an ADDITIONAL RM120!!! Yikes!!!! I don't have that much cash!). So, I'll just content myself with my little Laneige Winter Wonderland Makeup Palette!!!!
Whew!!!! It's tough being a woman, isn't it!!!!???

I woke up with aching shoulders this morning because of the 40 minute Pilates workout yesterday evening (Saturday). I think I'll just walk today to get my cardio in. I don't think I can do another pushup today, my arms are aching so bad.......sigh!
I barely made it to church this morning because my bed felt so comfortable!!! LOL!!! I was thinking : "Maybe I'll skip church today because I want to sleep in!"; but my better half won, and I forced myself up to get ready for church. I barely made it, I was like 5 minutes late and missed the first half of the first worship song!
But at least I listened the the sermon today. Does your mind wander during each sermon? Mine does and I have to force my mind back to concentrate on the sermon! I even struggle to do my daily quiet time with the Lord. I also sometimes forget to say grace before meals, but I am getting better at it though...........

I went for dialysis as usual this Friday. I really didn't expect it. At around 5pm, when I had like 30 minutes of treatment more to go, the light suddenly went off. I thought that we had a power failure or something.
Suddenly, the nurses started to sing the bday song! My bday was last Thursday actually. But the nurse that bought the cake was on leave till today! It was a becreamed and chocolate flake sprinkle concoction! Honestly, the cake was like one third whipped cream!!!!
I was so naughty, I had 3 helpings of the cake!!! It was delicious!!!! I have a great weakness for cream cakes. That's why I don't have it often!!! Otherwise I'll be a lot fatter than I am now!!! As it is, I already have a pouchy tummy! But you just can't have cake for dinner. I felt like a burger later that night, so my Mom treated me to McD's!
I had a big and tasty burger and a large fries; except that I split the fries with my Mom, who also loves fries. I ordered a small coffee for her but they got the order wrong, and my Mom had 12oz coffee instead (the big one). Because I ordered the large McValue meal, I opted for a large orange juice instead of a large coke. I only drank one third of it and gave the rest to my brother, who had just finished his shift! He must have been thirsty because he took like less than 5 minutes to finish the entire cup (or rather 2 thirds of a cup!).
I brought the remains of the cake home yesterday but since my brother didn't want it, I finished it this afternoon. I had a very good sleep! I woke up around 2pm today!!!! I'm usually extra tired on a Friday, being the 3rd and last treatment of the week and all!
It was such a nice surprise!!! I thought they had forgotten my bday but they didn't!!!! It's so nice to be thought of!!!!

I spent the day at the mall today and spent a little more than a hundred ringgit. Actually, I spent a little more than RM120, that's about USD40. I bought some moisturizer for RM24.50, 2 pairs of low rise panties for RM39, a pair of lovely earrings for RM32.40 (10% off for members, thank God I remembered my member card!), and RM19.80 for 230 grams of Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies!
I only got the cookies because the salesgirl was so nice to me! She let me try 3 variants without charge. In other words, she gave me 3 cookies on the house! I felt bad not buying anything. As 100 grams was not enough if I wanted to share them with my family, I decided to buy 200 grams, and I even got an extra 30 grams just because it was a Thursday. Apparently, they were having an anniversary promotion! An extra 50 grams on Tuesdays or an extra 30 grams on Thursdays if you buy at least 200 grams!
Imagine, it's not like I bought a truckload of stuff! I mean, I only bought like 4 items and I spent more than RM120! Even if you went grocery shopping here, you can easily spend more than RM200! I shudder to think about parents with little children! No wonder there are so many double income families! You just can't survive on one income in this case!
