Managed to find time to grab some books for myself during the PageOne Bookshop clearance sales before it is closed for good. The store is crowded with lots of customers, those who wished to take one last good look at the store and those who were for to grab some cheap deals. And for me its both.
When PageOne officially announced their closure via public media, it took me quite some time to digest the news and to overcome my shock. I was like: WHAT? Are you serious? Another good bookshop down, which in turn means one less place for me to source for books. What more devastating news can be compare to this? Especially for super bookworm like myself.
To me, PageOne is not just a bookshop. It houses many of my wonderful memories. I was there when it first begin. Would simply pop in during my every visit to Vivo City, looking around for new book titles. Or perhaps grab myself a few book related accessories and show off to my friends the very next day. Not forgetting, lazing on the bench at the side window and enjoying the sceneries outside. And many more… … But all these had become a thing of the past now. So sad.

Chanced upon this special deal on wheregotoffer website and happily grabbed one for myself. Free sweets from Sweet Enchantment @ Vivo City. OMG! I want! I want! And of course, I emailed the link to all my friends as well. 50g of mixed candies will be given free to the holder of the above coupon at no hidden cost or agendas. How exciting! And wait, it said got to bring along own airtight container too. Roger on that!
So I happily made my way there after dinner with my coupon in one hand and my recycled kimchi bottled in the other. Simply hand over my coupon and empty bottle and the gentleman gladly load it with almost 2 scoopful of wholesome delicious candies. The actual quantity given is way more than in the picture now. Reason being, I shared some with my colleagues before taking the above picture. The coupon mention 50g of sweets but Sweet Enchantment kindly gave out such a generous portion.
After grabbing my free sweet, I walked into the store and witness the live sweet making process by a few sweet gentlemen behind the open kitchen style counter. A sweet smiling lady attended to me and patiently explained to me the various sweet flavours that are currently on sales in store. And greedy me also takes this chance to try out every single available flavours. Oh boy! They were simply fantastic.
Took me quite some time before I finally decided to get the above two bottle. And for my purchase, I was given yet another free gift- a handmade lollipop worth $4.90. OMG! This is so generous of Sweet Enchantment. I never felt more pampered than that day before. Will definitely dropped by for more once I finish my crrent supply. But at the rate I’m popping in my sweets now, I think it shan’t be a long wait.
Attended the Clarins Hydration Beauty Chat with Sister Emily at Vivo City North Court today. Am so amazed by the instant effects of the various products. My skin becomes so smooth and radiant looking after the short session. Can imagine how baby like my skin will becomes if use for a prolonged period of time. Too bad its not wallet friendly for me.
And the lovely goodie bag that is given to us. Contains a bottle of mineral water, a travel bottle of extra-firming body lotion 30ml and a travel bottle of instant eye make-up remover 30ml.
After the session, the sweet sales assistant also kindly gave me extra samples of products based on skin care concerns and needs. How more lovely can she be?
Sister Emily had also kindly prepared a goodie bag for me. Just look at all the lovely goodies that she had given me. Don’t they look such babe to you?
Was window shopping at Vivo City when this caught my eye. Hooray! Uniqlo has finally arrived at Vivo City.
Can’t wait for them to open soon so that I can get my hands on more of their products. No more having to go all the way down to Orchard anymore.
