Bodyshop Goodies

Published March 17, 2014 by ireneyksoh

Its been quite a tedious month last month and  decided to pamper myself with some new goodies from The Bodyshop. I’ve been a big fan of The Bodyshop for many years. Since the time when Moonflower and Oceanus are still in production. Those two are my favourite scent. Speaking of, I kinda regret not stocking up on more before it goes into history. White mask is also another of my favourite.

The sales assistants were super friendly and helpful as always. And it didn’t take me long before  made up my mind what I wanna get this time. Though its harder to decide which one not to get.


I bought two pieces of the White mask creamy cleansing body bar, one for my sister and the other for myself.  Also bought myself a bottle of the White mask sensual body powder to keep myself smelling sweet and nice each day. The bar of pink grapefruit soap is for a friend who introduce me to this wonderful soap. I know she would definitely love it as much as I do. The Wild rose handcream is my favourite since I suffered from flaky skins many months ago. Am now using it diligently to prevent my skin from flaking again.

What is your favourite item from The Bodyshop? Care to share with me?

Unusual Snack

Published March 15, 2014 by ireneyksoh

Just when I was getting kinda bore of receiving the same old boring gifts from friends who visited my house during Chinese New Year, one of them gave me a BIG surprise with hers.


The box resembles that of chinese traditional medicine, but it actually contains individually wrapped white chocolates. Not to mention, the taste was really delicious too. Anyone finds this familiar? This is a replica of the medicine that was mentioned in one of Stephen Chow’s movie [唐伯虎点秋香] many years ago. And for those younger friends who may not seen that movie before, below is a short Youtube clips featuring the said item. The video is in Cantonese, with chinese subtitles.

For the next item, it may look like a packet of sanitary pads. But the inside contains is packets of twin colored marshmallow sweets. There is nothing special about the sweets, though I finds it a little too sweet for liking. I guess it’s the unique packaging that tempts people into buying it. I wonder what would happen if I would to give this as a gift to any of my guy friends…

Hahaz! What does the last item looks like to you? OMG! Me shy shy! The writing on the box was awesome and eye-catching too! Choco is better than sex… And of course, this is nothing but strawberry and white chocolates. Gave it to one of my colleague who went red while eating. So cute of her…

What about you, friends? What unusual gift have you gotten recently? Care to share with me?

Latest SampleStore Checkout!

Published March 13, 2014 by ireneyksoh


I never thought I would perform another checkout from The Sample Store within such a short period of time. At least not until  I read this email from them. In conjunction with the International Womens Day, The Sample Store is giving away retail size goodies for the first 150 paid sample checkouts worth up to S$159. Isn’t that so awesome of them to do so???? I mean more goodies on top of the already amazing free samples. Just how much more are they going to pamper us members for???


Despite having performed my checkout at a later date, I can’t helped but crossed my fingers that I had the luck to made it among the 150 lucky ones. Was feeling kinda surprise to receive two parcels from The Sample Store today despite only having performed one checkout. It only dawn upon me after opening the smaller parcel that the other parcel contain the retail size goodies. OMG! Wonder which item they sent me. But before that, let’s take a look at the samples I check out…

As much as I loved them for having taken the trouble to bubble wrapped the samples, the fact that they bundle samples of two different genetic items together kinda buffles me a little. I never expect them to bundle toiletries samples and consumable  food samples together. I was half expecting them to be pack separately. I mean, what if the content of the toiletries samples leaked??? Then won’t it contaminate the consumable sample? Who can still eat them after that? Doesn’t sounds that good, isn’t it??


And the extra goodie I managed to get it the Radical Glamtox day skincare wth SPF 15, worth S$159. OMG! I’m so floating on cloud nine. I’m really at a loss of words as to how to describe my happiness. Did you get the email from The Sample Store too? What samples did you check out? Which one of the goodies did you get?

Otome Game

Published March 12, 2014 by ireneyksoh


Ever since one of my ex-colleague introduced me to my first otome game,  My sweet bodyguard, I had been on the lookout for more such games in the app store. Otome game, or otherwise known as girl game is a story based video game that is targeted towards the female market. Mainly  The one major goal of the game is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male characters. The ending, be it happy or sad, depends highly on the choices that one made throughout the course of the game.

My favourite character from this game is Daichi Katsuragi. Not sure if its because of my preference for older guys. Although the others also looks equally amazing. One thing to note though, is not to take things too seriously. This is after all, a game and NOT REALITY. Just don’t get too hooked into it and miss out on actual good guys beside you.

Here are some other otome games that I had been playing whenever I’m bored or simply want to pass time. Not forgetting other non otome games like Unblock me, Guess the emoji Candy blast mania etc…  What about you? What games do you play on your mobile? Care to share with me?

I Love Spicy Foods!

Published March 8, 2014 by ireneyksoh

My love for spicy food had beaten my fear of sore throat. Despite trying hard to reduce my chilli intake, I find myself unable to take food without the aids of that wholesome red paste. It can be just normal chilli sauce, to sweet and sour thai chilli, and even to the ultimate belachan chilli. Food tends to taste so plain without it.

Here are some of my favourite homecooked and also hawker spicy food. Not that extreme til it numbs my tongue, but rather just a dstinctive spicy flavour for that extra touch. Since young, chilli had been a staple food item that never fails to appear on my house dining table.

What about yours? What is that one thing that you must have for your every meal? Care to share with me?

Pokemon Pencil Case

Published March 6, 2014 by ireneyksoh


Despite my ‘high’ age, I still cannot resist buying some cute things for myself. And the latest cutey I’ve gotten for myself is the Pokemon metal pencil case. I have been a big fan of Pokemon since I last played it with my brother when he was young. He had outgrown it, only leaving me still attached. I still played the new games whenever they are launched. Speaking of, me still struggling with my Pokemon X 3ds game now. The graphics were really awesome. Okie! Back to my pencil case….

IMG_9501 IMG_9503

The pencil case was decorated with many pokemon pictues and is twin layer. I used to remember how my mum always get me this type or pencil case when I was still schooling. I would place all my favorite pens on the top layer and the others right at the bottom. Til now,  I still had one particular twin layer pencil that mummy got me many years ago when I managed to get good grades for my maths exam. I seriously hate maths when I was young.


The pencil case comes with a free mystery tumbler. And for me, I’ve gotten Psyduck. Though I very much hope it to be Pichu or maybe perhaps Pikachu. But Psyduck is just as good too. Though some of my friends said it looks like me, especially the blank look…
