Ian and I headed to Pavillion since it's sometime since I last went and Ian wanted to watch the Singaporean movie Money No Enough 2, it was a pretty good show, it made me laugh, cry, then laugh then cry again and so forth.
It was more depressing than comedy mostly because the portrayal of the mother/grandmother reminded me so much of my own grandmother whom I miss so much. The type that will willingly sacrifice her own happiness or money for the sake of her children. It made me miss her all the more. It's been 8 years since her passing and I still think about her, I wasn't her favourite but I really loved her from the bottom of my heart. Everytime I hear the song from Mariah Carey Bye bye, I get reminded so much of her;
This is for my peoples who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky 'cause we will never say bye
I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
"I wish I could talk to you for awhile"
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by
And soon as you reach a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And I'm right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say bye bye
On a happier note, I finally got the M.A.C Cult of Cherry lip glass that I was so indecisive about. I went over to the counter and tried it on but couldn't decide whether to get it or not, it looked great but it's definitely not an everyday wear. I'm a little tight on money despite it being the beginning of the month and I bugged the hell out of Ian when I kept asking his opinion over and over again.
Money was tight but I couldn't get the colour out of my head so I was never so confused. Ian got a little pissed at me, I must admit that it was my fault but being egoistic I went into sulky mood and threw an tantrum. I bought him coffee at Starbucks since I couldn't open my mouth to say that I was sorry but lo and behold, Ian excused himself to toilet only to come back with the Lip glass for me. I was shocked!
But while I was in MAC, I swatched everything on my hands while the MUA was busy with other people. I'm surprised, is it me or is the attitude of the MUA improving?
We headed over to MidValley the following day and this time it was with Ian and his mom who was down from Sabah for a holiday. Since there was a Merdeka Day Sale, we browsed around Metrojaya looking for good bargains. Ian went over to take another sniff at the perfume he was eye-ing for a while now, Hugo Boss Pure. It's been while since I last bought him anything and knowing that he's low on perfume and how much he loved the scent, I bought the perfume for him. I know I said I'm tight on cash so I guess I'll won't be buying anything more this month if I don't want to end up eating grass.
In the end, I don't mind buying it for him seeing how much he loves the scent. As long as it's loved and appreciated, I feel as if it's money worth/well spend.
I found the perfect brown pair of shoes while waiting for Ian's mother shoe searching. Ian bought it for me with the RM20 voucher we got from the perfume. Oh la la, it's comfy too. I finally own a proper pair of brown shoes! It took me long enough to find it.
Speaking of brown, that was the colour of the tap water in Ian's Apartment too! Instant Milo on tap! GROSS! It happen to be tank cleaning day or something and the water was a muddy brown colour for the entire day. Of all times, it just had to be on the day I'm down in KL.
Woke up in the morning and didn't have my glasses on, turned on the tap, washed my tooth brush, brush brush and was about to gargle when I noticed the colour of the water. That sure woke me up! Luckily, spotted on time!
My favourite snack, chestnuts! YUM! Mom always said that I shouldn't eat too much since it's 'heaty' but I can't stop myself! I used to love love getting roasted chestnut from Gurney Drive but the lady selling the chestnuts sells overcooked chestnuts! They are not roasted to perfection but rather roasted to Kingdom Come! It's like eating little balls of charcoal. Mind you, expensive charcoals! But the above packaged chestnuts are expensive too! But these were given my Ian's mom so no complains.
- It doesn't look like nemo
- I HATE red bean paste or whatever
- It's slightly expensive at RM1.60 each
- It's smaller than it looks
- The red bean paste inside is almost non-existent (Good for me, bad for the people who loved red bean paste)
