I think my brains got fried...again + Tongxinxuemei paper masks

Updates has been slower since I'm still recovering from my fever, I know there's lots of unanswered replies and I'm sincerely sorry about the delay. It's also been about a week since I last went to the gym, something I do two or three times a week. Sulin called early this morning since I promised that I'll go accompany her today. Wasn't in the best of forms. Instead, all I wanted to do was eat. Been eating alot lately and I'm not sure why, I seem to be hungry every few hours since I fell sick. I guess it's normal though.

After gym and lunch, Kern and I headed over to Gurney Plaza since there was somethings we both wanted to check out. For me, I wanted to check out the paper masks selling at the weekend bazaar and try to find some really cheap tan foundation for the Ganguro FOTD. The cheap foundations' tan wasn't even close to tan. I feel kinda bad now for the people with tanner skins, I now know why I usually see them with the wrong coloured foundations and even if they wanted to use BB creams, it's hard (not impossible but really hard) to find something that matches them.

So my foundation quest came to a sad end. I can now only rely on my Elianto's powder that I got some time back thinking that I could contour my face with. I've tried it and it will "somewhat" work. It's not as tan as I would like it but still... all unless I can head over to MAC and beg Chris for some samples.



Anyway after months of readings JeanJean's blog, I became somewhat curious about all the paper masks as well. So during my time in Gurney, I bought two just to test it out. They were selling it pretty expensive at RM3 per piece. Some pieces went up to as high as RM5.90 for one!

Came home, got on the computer and checked, I'm worried about putting paper mask or anything unfamiliar on my face since I break out easy so I only wanted masks recommended by JeanJean. Lo and behold, I mistaken the brand Tongxinxuemei for LIYANSHIJIA.

Big difference right? I mean, they don't even sound the same. Problem was, I didn't remember the bloody damned name except that it was some Chinese name. Worst, I have difficulty remembering Chinese names because they are so complicated; especially the ones from China where they have lots of 'X' and 'Q' which I admit I have difficulty pronouncing. Not that I can't, but it takes a while for me to recall that words with 'Q' has a 'ch-' sound or something like that.

My first thoughts when I saw my mistake " I suck chicken ass"

*sigh*

The Red Wine mask is from Hong Kong while the Hyaluronic Acid Mask (what a name) is from Korea. Or so I was told.

The Red Wine Mask contains red wine polyhenol essence, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, magnesium phosphate, bark of whete (no such word but maybe it's wheat?) mulberry root essence, vitamin A etc. Not to sure what is the other ingredients states as 'etc' though.

It is stated behind that:

It can effectively activate skin, reendure skin with ample energe, make active skin of fae and appreciate whitening and crystal skin. It can quickly improve vigor of skin cells, offer ample moisture and nutrition to skin. Only 20 minutes, it can make facial skin sparkling from inside to outside and resume skin elasticity, leave skin rosy, cleansing, whitening and beautiful perfect texture.

Don't you just love it when people speak or type Engrish. I've always thought Fae was some kind of fairy creature. So this mask makes fairy creatures appreciate whitening and crystal skin? What the hell is reendure and energe?

Then again, I was kidding when I said I didn't understand. I DO understood bad English, you know why? Cause people nowadays can't speak proper English anyway. And if you do, prepared to get lots of negative comments. I kid you not. It's fast becoming a crime to speak good English in Malaysia. Not only will you be an outcast but mostly people who cant speak English for shit for whatever reason they never bothered to learn will accuse us of trying to show off. Remember there was a time I was arguing with a seller over a defect item she sold me? Well she and her friends all bombared me and accuse me of showing off my English - OUCH!

And the government is thinking of reverting Science and Maths to our National Language. I can see the future. I can see that Malaysia will be filled with people who can't speak English. I fear.


Left to right: Isn't the girl so pretty! I can't read a word, thats cause it's in Korean

I can't tell you much about the second mask since I myself can't understand a word of Korean other than Hyaluronic Acid, high moisture lock water white facial mask. And at the bottom, it's No.1 for something. Not too sure what.

The only thing I'm keeping my fingers crossed is that it won't break me out. Been neglecting my face the whole week now and was worried about its temprement but with the mask, it's either better or worst. I'm hoping it's for the better.

Oh no!! You were sick? When were you sick? Remember your body needs to get back to strength again, soo don't worry about eating a lot, I think you will feel sick again if you don't (and we don't want that!!). I had the same when I was sick and after a while it got back to normal. And don't worry if you haven't replied everyone back, if they are your true followers, they will stick around and be extra happy if they see a reply back ^_^! Just take your time.

Oh those paper masks look very nice! I used a paper mask with dead sea minerals. that left my skin tingling haha. Very funny feeling. I can't use a lot of different products tho, I break out very easily, have to say that it hasn't been that much since I used the Acne Bar from Best bath store.

It's still so frustrating how people can react if you speak another language better than average -_-'. Those stupid remarks are only because their jealous.
I think the Netherlands is known for the fact that people can speak English, but have to say that this isn't the case all the time. Sure there is a small vocabulary of English words, but to make proper sentences...this doesn't happen at all. But I have to admit that when you notice that someone is looking at you in a arrogant way or starts making stupid remarks, because you can do something they can't, it isn't fun at all. And some days you can handle it better than other days.
