Candy Swap!

28 Oct

Hi! I’m back with a candy swap which is my very first. This swap is extra special because the goodies I got are from Sweden and most lollies are unfamiliar to me.

Thanks, Zeruda for doing a swap with me. Hope you also liked the goodies I got you. Hope we can have another swap next time 🙂

(Belated) Happy New Year!

27 Jan

Hi everyone! I’m back 😊 I know I have been MIA for the longest time. Last year have been eventful which I can sum up in two events: I wasn’t well on the first six months and when I got well I moved to a new job. And six months onward… my new endeavour keeps me busy all the time.

Anyway, I really miss blogging and sharing my simple joys here. Hope you’re still support me like before.

Sharing this photo to remind us how to live well each day.
Thanks again and cheers 😊!

2013 Gmarket Haul #1

22 Feb

Image

Hola! I’m finally (hopefully!) back in the blogging world. I know I’ve been MIA for a looong time; life just got in the way ;). Anyway, I am back to share my first haul for Gmarket this year. I’m always excited when I purchase off Gmarket and waiting for my package always makes me giddy.

Date Ordered and Paid: February 11

Date Shipped: February 18

Date Delivered: February 21

I was extremely pleased with my order this time being so fast and drama-free. I would like to say I was surprised to see my package waiting for me at my apartment lobby but I was checking the tracking system all day yesterday so I was expecting all the glory that my Gmarket box represents. 🙂

Who sent my package this time?

Image

Love him! ha-ha

Let’s a look inside the box, shall we?

Image

…and the family picture of the boxes.

Let’s begin with:

Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream

Image

Would you believe that I got this for a dollar (US$1)? This snail cream was one of the reasons why I opted to make a haul. This product is too cheap to pass. I haven’t tried this before although I have tried the Mizon All-in-One Snail Healing Cream which I really loved. Despite being on promotion, the snail cream was also delivered fast. I also found a Mizon seal indicating it’s authenticity in the box. So it’s a thumbs up, for me.

MP4 Player

Image

I was back to jogging on the weekends and although I can use my phone for my music, I needed a basic (and yeah, inexpensive) MP3 player to accompany me on my runs. Surprisingly, I can’t find one in my local Tesco so I decided to search for one in Gmarket. Designed in Korea and made in China, this no-brand MP4 player was easy to use. It was in Korean when I got it but then after trying and exploring it for an hour or more, I finally found the English language. It came with an installer CD but it can’t be read on my laptop but when I tried to put songs into it, it also worked. Oh, despite it being called an MP4 player, it is not compatible with MP4 format, but then again I only need it for my music. It came with earphones, lanyard, USB cable, cloth for wiping, wire holder and some downloading (?) coupons? (Note: If there’s anyone in Korea who wants it, please message me. I got so much that it will just be wasted here as I can’t use them)

Lotte Charlteok Pie (롯데 찰떡바이)

Image

Ever since I have tried, Samjin Charlteok Pie last year, I’ve been craving for this for a long time. It is rice cake that is covered and filled with chocolate. I like it a lot! One box comes with 6 pieces of pies. This seller shipped this so quickly as well.

Ryoe Hambitmo Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner

Image

I haven’t opened nor smelled it but I am excited to use it. I am in dire need of a herbal shampoo as I feel that I am having more hair fall each day 😦 I read that it smelled like ginseng which I don’t really mind because I have used a few herbal shampoos before. I’ll post a review once I use this shampoo and conditioner.

So that’s it! I really did not buy a lot this time, just goodies that I really need. I am looking forward to making more Gmarket hauls again. If you need links or reviews of the products, please do not hesitate to message me.

Hope you all enjoy your Friday and the weekend.

Cheers, everyone! 🙂
