I Was Away for A Week

I guess you don't even notice it, Ha! Well, I didn't mention it anyway, hehe.  I've been back for a few days but too lazy to do a post :P. So I went to Singapore last week to do some stuffs and one of the reason is to watch this:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
Surprisingly I actually quite like the movie since I didn't have too much expectation for it because the sixth installment of the movie (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince) disappointed me, I actually fell asleep during the movie. So after finished watching this seventh installment, I was glad that I was still wide awake! The only thing that I don't like is they make the movie in two parts, and the part two isn't released until next July! I don't mind to watch the movie 5 hours straight, I just don't like to wait so long to watch the next part. Oh well, I can't do anything about it.

When I went shopping, I saw FaceQ masks in People's Park Complex (one of the shopping center in Singapore) and was really happy. But when I looked at them closely, I found the packaging was really weird, it's unlike the one that I got from Taiwan. So when I went home, I compared them, I assume that the one that I saw in People's Park Complex is the fake FaceQ masks. See the difference:

FaceQ masks that I saw in People's Park Complex

FaceQ masks that I got from Taiwan

Notice the difference? The fake masks look colorless. Even though they're pretty cheap (SGD 1.50/piece), but we never know what they have in the ingredients and what they'll do to our skin. No to fake masks!

This is what I do when I don't have internet connection or when I don't have any book to read. I love Sudoku! Although sometimes I got frustrated when I couldn't solve it but that never makes me stay away from playing Sudoku :D.

It's been a while since my last food porn post (is it?), so here's a little food porn for you all!

Pearl milk tea, one of my fave drink ever!

Waffle basket with ice cream~

More macarons for me! I'm addicted!

Meatballs at IKEA, so yummm~

Happy Thanksgiving!
Till next time!

Blair said...

OMG I heart macarons! We really need to meet up one of these days for some shopping and macaron-ing hahaha

Now that you mentioned it, the girls? in the fake FaceQ masks aren't colourful like the real ones!! Thank goodness you didn't purchase them o.O

the face mask covers are so cute, and the food looks great. Welcome back. :-)

RicAdeMus said...

LOL, you were missed! I use many generic products that have the same ingredients as the name brands, so the fakes really annoy me.

I've never had french macaroons, only the coconut macaroon variety.

M.A.C.nunu said...

:O!!! so shiok!!! fake FaceQ!!
Probably even the shop owner didn't know they were fakes!
Scary how much fake stuff is out there!

LittoMokaa said...

Shingo T said...

I haven't drank the Koi bubble tea before, the queues normally quite long.

Hope it's really as good as they say.

Shodoku kills my brain cells, haha.

Nic Nic said...

slowbrogal said...

I've been seeing you quiet nowadays and I saw KOI!! You were in Singapore!! Oh my..Should let me know and we have a meet up dearie. (OK, I'm far away of being excited now) Oh, I have the crave on the macaroons too..Isn't it delicious?

Ribka said...

I love the movie too! can't wait to watch part 2 :)

mayaari said...

the past couple of posts I've read in my feeds have all shown pics of bubble tea, lol..it's making me crave some now!

I agree that I wish they hadn't split up the last HP book into 2 parts, but there's really so much that needs to be included, and 5 hours is a really long time to sit through (even though I'd probably do it, haha)...sad and excited to see the last half of it next summer!

..R May A.. said...

ooh the food looks yummy!
& i don't watch the hp films just because i love the books but that image looks really good!

wuguimei said...

Omg, I didn't like the last HP movie either! It was so boring I didn't expect to like the 7th one, haha. And now I want to reread the entireee series! :DD

rae630 said...

I loved the new Harry Potter movie! Thanks for posting about the face masks. It always scares me that I might be tricked into buying fake masks. And the food looks soooo good! <3 Rina

InsideOut Elle said...

seriously, i feel like there are more and more fake mask retailers these days :\...you have to be so careful nowadays...

omg the FOOD! The waffle ice creem and macaroons looks SO GOOD. I wish i could go to IKEA more often ^^ i love how they have such cheap and yummy food~

Shanghainese Dumpling said...

Welcome back looks like you had a short and sweet trip :) Happy thanks giving to you too :)

Tammy said...

MMMMM the macarooms look derishous! Hahahha I love IKEA food too! Sometimes I go there specifically just to eat their food :D

I'm glad that the 7th movie was better! I haven't watched the 6th but a lot of people said they didn't like it. Mind you, I have the say the 6th book was kind of MEH too.

Dizzy said...

I’m waiting till the blu-ray comes out for the new HP, but everybody is raving on how good it is, I think I might have go and see it right away.

It makes me so mad to see fake retailers; I mean really what’s the point?

The look so yummy, I feel a sweet tooth coming on … lol

Jennifer said...

thankyou, Dina :D

Witoxicity said...

Yup, it's better to be careful with fake-looking skincare products! It's not worth the risk. You must have had a great time in Singapore. Your food pics this time is so colourful! Ha ha! :)
