It's happening!!

It seems like my life is actually beginning this year. Other than my modeling dream (which is also moving properly this year!!), the only thing i've ever wanted is to travel... Now, those of you who know me personally know that this was impossible for me, until last year. May last year was the first time I could travel out of Sabah since my arrival when I was just 7 years old. My 1st trip? Kuala Lumpur!

It was amazing to finally be able to fly, and since then I travelled at least 3 more times to KL until I decided to move here in March 2010. But now the best part is, since I have my passport (July 2010), plans to actually travel around and out of the country are finally materialising! Today, I fly back to Sabah to attend my dear 'brother's' wedding.. No, not Oliver! my 'k go', step-brother, 'adopted' brother, or however you may acknowledge it.. Joshua Wong, congratulations! I'm so happy to have been able to be there for your big day, and I wish you and your wife, Josephine a blessed life ahead of you.. =)

I'll be flying back to KL at the end of the month, then maybe continuing on a roadtrip to Malacca with a few friends.. In October, hoy Manila, as I get to go to the capital of the Phillipines with Moezik Events, then on to Singapore for a couple of days to spend some long awaited time with my S'Mal!! Phew..!!

I'm looking forward to these trips, and hopefully the new adventures to be had - I love visiting new places and being the tourist! There's also Thailand to go, to visit Annie and Chris Suwanmalee, friends I made this year, and hopefully in the near future, ENGLAND!! Now that would be a busy trip.. Family, my childhood best friend Vicky, one of my best friends who moved from Sabah Katherine and who knows who else!! =D

So all in all, yes, the traveller in me may be happy yet! There are so many places to visit, so little time (and money)! So in the meantime, I am making it a point to visit as many different places, restaurants, and also events that are possible.. The experience is worth it, and at the end of the day, hey, at least I can say I've been huh? ;p

Til next time,
Your soon-to-be tourist, coming to a town near you!

Face Mask review - Aqua Boost Moisturizing Mask

Why suddenly decide to do face mask reviews, you may ask.. I know, I know.. I'm not exactly the most dedicated person to any kind of skincare, bodycare, makeup etcetc.. Haha.. Well, the past few days my skin has been feeling hell-a-dry, so I decided to go out searching for budget-friendly, as well as easy-to-use masks for a quick pick-me-up! The first place that came to mind? Sasa!

I bought quite a few masks, spent about RM40 in total, and that's with the discount (still on sale! ;p) So this is the first one I tried - Aqua Boost Moisturizing Mask by sasatinnie.

As usual, the mask sheet was too big for my face, nothing new there, lol.. The thing that did surprise me though, was how easy the mask could be folded in places and moved around to match the size of my face! Usually I'll have to tear other masks to pull it tighter, or just live with random air vacs between the mask and my skin, usually on my cheeks or nose.

The moisture on the mask was just nice, not too wet or sticky, and was made even better by the fabric (?) of the mask, which was not to soft, thick, or thin.. After leaving it on for the recommended 20 minutes, the sheet was still moist enough to fold and put on my neck for another 20 minutes! Voila! 2 masks in 1! =D Even after that, it was still not dried up!

Immediately after this mask, my skin felt smooth and soft to the touch, minus the sticky leftover residue, and it actually looked smoother too.. The next day, I could feel some blackheads had come up to the surface, so that if you just slightly brushed them with your fingernail (washed of course, you dont wanna contaminate your face with germs now do you? That was once my downfalling!) they would come away with ease.

The Aqua Boost Moisturizing Mask is made in Korea, and is formulated with hyaluronic acid and plant extracts. It claims to instantly recharge skin moisture, increase moisture retention, prevent premature aging, and repair free radical damage.

This is defiantely a mask I'm gonna buy in the future.. When I get through the other pile I bought on the same day! Lol.. Consider it thoroughly recommended! And at a selling price of RM4.90, what have you got to lose? =)
