U-KISS(유키스) 0330 M/V Full ver.

I just wanted to share this beautiful song/ music video (MV) sung by the Korean international boy group U-Kiss (international because some of them lived abroad and can speak more than one language).
They just released their mini album "Bran New Kiss" & will promoting their title track "0330" tomorrow Mar 31st.
Earlier today, they released the official MV to "0330" in their official youtube channel "ukiss2008"
No one has released with subtitles yet, but I found a small description about it in "“0330″ stands for 3:30AM – a time of restlessness for those who have yet to fall asleep. It tells the story of a man who is unable to sleep after breaking up with his girlfriend. His grieving heart is expressed soulfully through the song’s soft lyrics and melody."
It's quite a really sad song realizing how sad it is, but it gives a beautiful & soft vibe to it. I listened to it once and fell in love with it!!
And now, of course, it's stuck in my brain XD

Good Luck U-Kiss!

Choco Pie!

I'm feeling better now than I have. Flu & cough are gone but sore throat still there~

I went grocery shopping with mom. The super market we went to also has a furniture store in it, McDonalds, a shrimp take out, pharmacy & Daiso (a store that imports Japanese products). We passed by Daiso to get a few items. My mom fell in love with their buckets which each cost AED7 (1.9$, 155 Yen, 1.1 pounds, 2,114 Won) & we bought a new pair of indoor slippers for our housemaid. I, being a over to South East Asia/ Japan, couldn't help not buy something for myself. :D

Slippers to wear as I walk in my room (AED12 - 3$, 265 Yen, 2 pounds, 3,624 Won) , cotton buds for my ears (AED7-1.9$, 155 Yen, 1.1 pounds, 2,114 Won), on the right is a travel toothbrush & toothpaste.

I'm more excited over the toothbrush travel kit because it comes with a zipped bag & won't worry about messing my bag XD
Did I mention the color of the brush is pink?

I passed by the pharmacy before heading back home & the pharmacist recommended my these.

The one on the left is like Strepsils, except has a minty/spearmint to it. I have to take them every 2 hours. The one on the right is an antibiotic that I had to take 2 capsules 2 hours before & after meals. But it only has 6 capsules?! Well apparently it's not an issue really~

This afternoon I had a snack that reminded me of highschool & my classmates :) 
Hot Flamin' Cheetos chips & yogurt! Yes as a dip! it's a mix of cold & spicy :) I know I'm not suppose to have anything cold but I couldn't help it! I was craving XD
One of my classmates would always buy a giant bag of it & lots of yogurt for all of us to eat during lunch break XD

I mentioned before that I bought a mask from The Face Shop "Tea Tree & Bergamot". And I tried it out yesterday. It was really cooling but I some what felt a tad bit greasy. Maybe because of the remains of the formula that I feel this way~ It suppose to be good for oily/combination skin & used every 2-3 weeks. I'd buy another sheet once I get the opportunity again :3

I hope I'll get better tomorrow. A weeks being sick isn't k0o0ol at all 0.0;

Chocolate Eggs

Hey everyone! Long time no writing!!
I feel bad and need to pull myself together and write more!!! I got used to being lazy all the time that it became a good excuse for myself @.@

Got lots to say & show so I hope you stick around to see the fun sweetness I had!

Few weeks back, the Sales department in my office has invited us to Dubai Marina, where people can rent a boat, yacht etc & go around even to the middle of the ocean for like half an hour or so. It's a whole new experience for me and is really k0o0ol!! Personally, since I can't swim, I thank God we had a safe ride & made it back to land safely. Plus the weather dramatically changed from nice summer-ish day to a foggy cold afternoon/evening. 0.0;

We were taken on a yellow speed boat (also known as "rubber duck" in South Africa) & went around for half an hour & the sights are just amazing!!!

 It was amazing! In all honesty, it's one of those things that I'll only do once & never again!!! XD

Last week, I went shopping for 2 reasons: my colleague/friend's birthday was last Tuesday & to buy me a new skin & hair care. All the products I bought from from The Face Shop (just in case, none of them were sponsored).

For my colleague/friend, I got her a blush & also can be used as eye shadow in a shade of "02 Pink Nuance." It's quite shimmery so she can use it when she goes on vacation to the beach! or just in summer :)

From left to right: Trio eyeshadow in the shade of "Gold Brown", matter pink lipstick, tint lip/cheek, liquid eye liner.

From left to right: Maybelline's Volum Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara (for my colleague/friend), Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in back (for my colleague/friend), Soul Sweet Pleasure perfume, gel eyeliner brush, angled face brush (I used it to apply blush and it's great!), 3 facial masks: rice mask & black bean from the cereal mask sheet collection (for my colleague/friend) & tea tree mask for me.

Lips balms & two lip glosses.

For myself, I bought the Keratin Intense Care line (from left: hair mask, conditioner, shampoo & serum). It smells really good and hope it'll help with my hair problems XO This collection is pretty good for you if you have damaged hair (dyed, using heat on it all the time, hair sprays, chemicals, etc). It's suppose to keep your hair soft, shiny, healthy and decreases your split ends. I'll tell you more about it few weeks time to see if it is actually doing it's thing or not.

I also found a new skin care that I'm happy with so far. From left: Clean Face White Acne Solution Foam Cleanser, Quick & Clean toner & moisturizer.  It's good for oily skin (well it's oil free) with lots of acne and all that. It's been keeping my skin balanced. However, the reason why the sales lady recommended me the Clean Face White line rather than the facial from the Quick & Clean line is because, as she said, my skin is really oily & prone to acne/ pimples (which it is) & needs something stronger. I'll give a better review in 30 days 'coz I heard from beauty gurus that results for skin products don't show until a month later.

I also got the (from left) Clean Face White Post Acne Brightening Serum & Post Acne Nighttime Spot Eraser. They both are suppose to help reduce the acne spots that remains on my face. I'm not sure but I'm beginning to notice the ones in my forehead are decreasing or maybe it was already fading & I didn't notice? I'll take better notice the next time!!

 This week (Sunday 19th) I've been having sore throat which developed into flu & fever & cough. I couldn't risk being off for the day at work. I needed to be there in the office. But yesterday, my manager actually made me go home because she'd rather have me a day off rather than a week 0.o; so I left later in the afternoon on Thursday (24th) and just directly went to bed, to wake up to today (Friday 25th)! It's pretty crazy but I decided to make the most out of my weekend and finally I did something productive for myself (such as writing this long blog post XD).

There are 2 K-pop that I've been into lately. One, his name is K.Will. He's currently promoting his title track "My Heart is Beating." It's such a sweet happy song about confessing your love! I listen to it every single morning! Click on the link to watch with English subtitles.

The other is from an artist name Wheesung. He just recently made his comeback with the title track "Words That Freezes My Heart" ft. B2ST JunHyung. It's a sad ballad about breaking up & bidding farewell to your love. It's dramatic but worth listening to.

There's also randomly stuck in my head. Now, I say randomly because it's one those songs that you listen to once & not like it much but it's stuck in your head!! >.<; well, now, I like it~
This Korean girl group made their comeback few days ago & promoting a track called "Twinkle Twinkle".  Have a look!

Before I bid you goodbye, I would like to share one last thing with you.
As you all know what happened on March 11th at 2:30 pm, a 9.0 mgh earthquake hit the northern part of Japan. Many lost their homes & worse, lives. To help support the victims, here's something you can do. Visit this blogger who create really cute items herself. She made this Japanese-inspired pouch & is selling it. She'll be donating 30%  the Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund. You can read about it here:

You can also go to Japanese Red Cross & donate there as well:

If you can not donate, then your prayers will definitely help, especially when you mean it from the heart.

Thank you & Take Care.

Double Chocolate Cookies

Finally I got the opportunity to go shopping!!!

It was a quick one though and just got what I needed~

After my dentist appointment, I passed by The Face Shop, a South Korean based store, and grabbed a couple of items:

1-Cleansing Rice Water face make up Remover AED 39
2-Lip & eye make up remover AED 39
3- Two nail polish  AED 24
4- Nail sticker   AED 10

Before leaving, I grabbed their catalogue to see what else do they sell & how much it costs.

I was looking for a blush brush since mine was too old and falling apart! The saleswoman said this brush is multi-purpose and can be used as a blush~
Hopefully it can do that because it seems to be more of a perfect foundation brush.
But it is a super soft brush I've never felt something like it ever!

They gave me a gel mask to try out for free! A review about it will follow soon.

The make up removers were pretty good & they actually remove the make up completely. The cleansing rice water has a lovely fragrance!!

Afterwards, I passed by Plug-Ins to buy headphones.

It costs AED 39. My heart was broken but I needed a new one since mine doesn't work anymore :<
I couldn't get myself to buy a pink headphones coz they cost around AED 100~

Before leaving, I realized that I forgot to buy a clear nail polish to give my nails a nice shine, so I quickly passed by Skin Food, another South Korean store.

I also couldn't help but get 2 crystal nail stickers~ They were so cute! Unfortunately I don't remember how much they cost but in total it was AED 50 >. >

I'm really happy I was finally able to go shopping even if it was quick after a long time :D Really brought happiness to my day :3

Take Care! <3

Song Ji Eun (Secret) ft. Bang Yong Kook - Going Crazy MV [English subs +...

Since last week, this song has been stuck in my head before finding out the meaning to it.
From a female K-pop (Korean Pop) group Secret, main vocalist Song Ji Eun released her solo
digital track called "going crazy".
As you read along the translation to the song in the video above, it's more like he was stalking his
girlfriend and then she does that back to him or maybe it's more about how she's constantly thinking about him. I honestly did not understand the story/message behind it but I love the song so much that
it became my ringtone on my cellphone XD
