Does this make you hungry? Not really? I wouldn't be if I saw this too, but this was lunch yesterday and it cost 6500won @__@. I went to a supposedly Japanese udon place, didn't seem too Japanese if you ask me. I had the tempura udon. The noodles were thick and chewy and the tempura was horrible. First of all, I hate sesame leaves, they taste soooo weird and gross to me, it's got this strong uuggghhh flavour to it. Secondly, the tempura batter was so thick and soggy by the time it was served to me. I peeled off most of the batter to eat the stuff inside, which was 1 tiny shrimp and a small piece of purple yam. *sigh* I wish there were better noodle places here. I wish there was Ajisen Ramen! Although I'm sure that's considered crap among ramen and noodle places.
How about curry roast chicken from the back of a truck instead? I believe it was 15000 for a chicken and that's more than double the price of the Costco roast chickens. Didn't look too tasty anyway.
Since this is beauty blog, I should have something beauty related right? XD BTW, I'm trying to play around with picture sizing and such to try to reduce the amount of scrolling down, so bear with me!
I got myself the Skinfood Green Tea Bubble Cleansing Foam for about 6500won for 160mL. Who doesn't like foam on their face!?? I've tried a sample of the Philosophy Purity Foam, I liked the foamy-ness but I broke out and it stripped my face of everything @__@
This formula is supposed to help rid your skin of impurities and also slightly exfoliate it...without scrubbers. I feel like it's a regular face wash. It doesn't strip my face of all the oils, but it does leave a slightly squeaky feeling. It has a very heavy green tea scent which doesn't linger too long. The downside to this cleanser is that it uses a lot of liquid to create 1 pump of foam. I use 2-3 pumps and I'm sure I'll finish this in under 2 weeks with daily use. So save your monies everyone, it's not really worth any shipping price because you will finish this quickly. Try the Apple Vinegar Fresh Foam instead. It's a gel that lathers up slightly. I've tried the sample and it smells delightful!
I made a purchase for myself yesterday. Look at the picture...isn't that so cool? Haha. I have to admit sometimes I sweat a lot on my pits, especially if I'm nervous. But it's not like excessive sweating where it happens 24/7, it's at random times.
Anywho, I saw these pit pads for your shirts in a Japanese magazine a while ago. I thought these were perfect for me, and for anyone else who doesn't want to ruin their pretty tops on a hot summer's day. I first saw these in person in Hong Kong and they were roughly $9CAD for 10 pairs, which I thought were kind of pricey. Then I saw them again in Seoul for 12000won, even more expensive! But I got it anyway, I didn't want some of my favourite tops to be ruined. I've seen other sizes and colors in the magazine for your darks and for sleeveless tops.
The concept is, you stick these pads on your shirt and they absorb the excess sweat and protects your clothes and you from embarassement! =D These were pretty big pads, they're thin (1mm), soft and flexible. I haven't used these yet because it's been cold outside, but I imagine they would work quite well.
I'm not too sure what the brand is so I can't really direct anyone to get them on a specific website. (Yumeko, would you happen to know?) If I can't find them anywhere online, I think I have to stock up before I leave Korea. (Canada's dry hot heat is brutal...for some reason I sweat more in Toronto than in Hong Kong o_O)
Look it's cake in a cup! You mix the powder with 1 egg and microwave for 1:20 minutes and you've got freshly microwaved cake haha.
This is the chocolate flavour with some chocolate cookie bits in it. I've also tried purple yam flavour that comes with sugar syrup. These cakes mainly taste like spongy microwave cake with a bit of flavour in it. Not too bad if you want a cake-fix. They cost about $1CAD.
I've finally finished my list of "to buy" for Hong Kong. Excluding the clothes and camera, it's come up to about $2500CAD, did I go over board for 3 weeks? XD
I have a question! Does anyone happen to know where on the net I can find the ingredients of the Paul & Joe skincare line? I've had trouble finding it =/
