A special deal that I had recently bought online from Plus! Big Deal website. There were 3 different varieties available for redemption and I choose honey sticks. A total of 10 packet of honey stick, with each packet containing 4 sticks. Which mean a total of 40 honey sticks. So happy.
Dropped by S&N Honey house to collect my goodies after work today. As this is my first time trying out the honey sticks, I could not make up my mind which one to choose from the 5 types of flavours that were presented to me. In the end, I decided to take 2 packets of all the available flavours. They are Lemon, Peach, Sour apple, Root beet and Clover (Original).
That is such a steal! So many honey sticks at such an affordable price. Each honey stick only cost me abt S$0.25. Am so going to share them with my family members and friends.

Which one would you be getting? I’ll be getting for myself the S$18 Fortune bag. As much as I wanted to get the S$88 Imperial bag. My financial condition does not allow me to do so.
Remember the dagger lookalike pen that I had gotten for myself quite some time ago? Well, I totally adored it. So much that I dropped by Comics Connection today to see if I can find any more such interesting pens. And oh boy! Sure am I glad that I did.
Just like the dagger lookalike pen, these lovely sword lookalike pens cost me S$1 each. Comics Connection also had lots more other interesting pens for sale at super cheap prices, such as Hello kitty, Angry bird, Rilakkuma etc. But I find these designs too commonly found in the market. What I want is something that is extraordinary.
Unlike the dagger, the sword had a longer body. Thus made gripping the pen while writing to be an easier task. After getting such special pens, my task next is to look for refills that can fit into them. Hope they can be easily available too.
The latest issue of Guardian Feelings magazine had hit stores more than a week ago but I only remember to buy them recently. Been tied down by many problems lately and my energy is draining out at a speed that is faster than I ever imagine. I seriously need some friends to talk to, before I really went bonkers. Anyway, back to my magazine purchase…
Just like its earlier release, this issues also comes packed with some lovely samples. But a quick flipped while on the bus kinda saddens me a little. As much as the content of the magazine had becomes more interesting with every new issue, the number of contests conducted are not as many as when it was first launched.
In conjunction with the coming Chinese New Year, Eternity Inter-trade had decided to come out with a special treat for all their fans – CNY Fukubukuro. A total of three different varieties of CNY Fukubukuro bag will be up for sale from 11th Jan to 01st Feb 2012. Each grab bag also includes 8 mystery gift kindly added in by Eternity Inter-trade. Price for the three bags range from S$28 to S48, with its content ranging from S$60 to S$100. That is such a steal.
After saying so much. What does Fukubukuro actually means?
Fukubukuro, also known as 福袋, lucky bag, mystery bag, is a Japanese New Year’s Day custom where merchants make grab bags filled with unknown random contents and sell them for a substantial discount, usually 50% or more off the list price of the items contained within. The low prices are usually done to attract customers to shop at that store during the new year. The term is formed from Japanese fuku (福, good fortune/luck) and fukuro (袋, bag). The change of fukuro to bukuro is the phenomenon known as rendaku. The fuku comes from the Japanese saying that “there is fortune in leftovers” (残り物には福がある). Don’t you just wished you were in Japan at that time?

I had a pretty hard time trying to decided which bag to buy. They all look so tempting to me. I had an urge to grab one of each type. Which one would you be getting?
No words can truly described my joy when Rozanne emailed me informing that I’m one of the lucky winners to her Maybelline goodie bag giveaway. Was suppose to meet her during the mass meetup to collect my prize from her. But my hectic working schedule forbids me from doing so. Roxanne then so kindly offered to meet me at my workplace to hand me the prize. That is so sweet and nice of her. So sorry to have made her travel all the way to Vivo City. I feel so guilty.
A sweet handwritten note from Roxanne found inside my Maybelline goodie bag. Isn’t that so sweet and nice of her?
And finally, the items inside my goodie bag. This is such a timely goodie bag, especially with Chinese New Year arriving in two weeks time. You can be sure that I’m so gonna make full use of them soon.
