SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Workshop



Every since I stopped blogging full-time years ago, years later I finally found a little joy back in blogging, but only limit to whenever I feel like sitting down and penning the words out. I also started accepting invites for workshops and events, though no many I have to admit, but I'll go for those that interest me and whenever I'm able to.

Since starting my own business, it has been a little hectic and I have been craving for a long break of late, which fortunately I did a short while ago, and now am ready to dive back into the hectic schedule.

When SK-II invited me for their famous Facial Treatment Essence Workshop months ago, I agreed. Knowing I love SK-II and all their products.









The experiment shows the how easily FTE can be absorbed into the skin as compared to water and other essence brand, and how it slows the oxidation process of on the bananas as compared to water and other essence (a.k.a. aging of our skin).

My mom was an avid user way before I ever was and I have always loved how amazing their products work on my skin. It comes with no wonder each and every piece of their skincare cost a small fortune, but oh so worth it. Good stuff never comes cheap. It's also scary that every year they increase their price, much like Chanel bags. -_-



Thanks for the FTE! Just finished two of my big FTE bottles this year. o.O



Currently this Facial Treatment UV Protection is sitting in my drawer. I'll probably have to start using it soon as my current daily UV sunblock is running out. :p

Chanel Les 4 Ombres











It's always nice to receive a gift when you return from a travel. Especially when it has the word "Chanel" on it.

When given a choice, I went with the 232 Tisse Venitien because I don't normally apply shade of green on my eyes even though my complexion has always suited green. The model in the promo video has such an intense eyeshadow color portrayal of this palette that I was sold immediately. Despite knowing it would take primer, eyeliner, mascara and a whole lot of patience to achieve this look. Nevertheless, it's an exciting blend of color I'm adding to my collection.

Anamnesis


Lily and Sorapong Temple in Korat





Been three years since I last visited this temple.

So much has changed since, and yet so much remained unchanged.
Bittersweet footprints filled my heart as I traced each step through the temple.

Who were the people I laughed so hard under the hot sun with, my memories no longer served me.
Yet here I was again, laughing hard and being joyful with a different set of people.
Living the moment and the present.

It chills me to wonder,
would now be as forgettable as before a year or two later,
ebb to a slur of anamnesis; as were the faces of people who made such sensational imprints in my heart.
