Hellooooo from Singapore!!

Hi all!!
Omg, I know, I know, it's been such a long time since I last blogged, but, but but! Okay, I arrived in Singapore on Saturday morning... then by Monday or Tuesday night I got sick... =( I'm still coughing now, throat is still very very sore... and head still spins now and then spitting fever into my brain. Alright enough of that...


Guess what! Guess what!! I now own ....

YES!! I know!! I went to Sephora @ ION Orchard, Singapore yesterday on 25th February, thinking whether I should reserve 1, since it's supposed to be launching today on the 26th. But but but the Sales Assistant then told me that they already had some in stock! So I went ahead and purchased it, along with a Stardust in Diamond Dog (now thinking whether to get the other colours too...) , which qualified me to receive the GWP!! I'll show you what it all looks like once I get back to Australia... because I'm now at a internet cafe hahaha... This is officially my first Urban Decay product. Lucky I didn't get the Ammo or the Deluxe Shadow Box, cause I was considering of purchasing them but this Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows is even better!! It costs SGD$88, which converts to around AUD$70ish? Yeah... =) This would sell at AUD$100-200 in ebay! Urban Decay isn't available in Australia... and even if it's available, the price would definitely be double the price it retails in US.

I've been hauling... oh God, yes I have... stock up... everything so much cheaper here than in Australia... hahaha.

What else... let me think... Yes I've been visiting SASA, Watson's, and oh I even did a haul at The Face Shop which qualified me to be a lifetime member now hahaha... I wonder if I should just do a video on my haul... I've never done a video before... let alone a haul video... would you like me to do a video? I could try?

Alright, I best be off... before my internet session is up. Mwahhhhh!!

PS: I was about to purchase Maybelline Magnum Mascara today but didn't . I was shocked to find it's Made in China... Horror Horror!! I thought it's made in USA? Not anymore? Tell me whyyy!! It retails for SGD$18.90

It costs $52 in the U.S. for the Alice in Wonderland kit. Sorry, don't wanna make you feel bad. My sister used to work for a beauty store in San Francisco and she says that she gets a lot of Singaporean customers mostly pilots and flight attendants buying bulks of beauty stuff. Why? Cos they told her it's cheaper here than in SG. I think OPI nail polish is the most bought beauty item.

@ Rose Belle: hahaha I know.. it's always cheaper in US than Singapore or Australia. So someday, when I visit US, of course I'll be hauling a lot more hahahaha... but in the meantime, singapore is still cheaper than Australia ;) Australia is double or triple the price of US normally. Thanks for the comment ;)

@ Vanilla: hehehe I can't wait to go back to Indonesia... another stock up session! Hahaha... Gosh Australia is so expensive compared to other parts of the world in terms of makeup, food etc...
