I'm back! And with me are the hauls I got from Hong Kong.
I primarily love Hong Kong for their super delicious siu ngo or roasted goose; others call it Peking Duck but siu ngo is totally different from duck and there's no direct translation to siu ngo, if you want to taste better Peking Duck just tell them Siu Ngo and they'll give you goose instead of duck, dip it in plum sauce and it's gonna be heaven. I also love La-a po which is salted or daing duck rice in hot pot; the aroma is like heaven! I love eating the burnt rice sticked to the pot because it's the tastiest part of the meal, just poke your chopstick on the pot and mix tutong with the rice simmered in La-a's aroma. La-a tastes the best in winter season because it needs to be dried in a naturally cool temperature. Enough of this food talk I'm getting hungry again!
Don't be fooled though, I'm not rich haha! I know the haul looks crazy but some of it are freebie such as the Lola by Marc Jacobs make up pouch from Spring Magazine- a nice Hong Kong lady who's selling magazines on the streets told me (translation courtesy of my father who didn't teach me to speak Cantonese huhu) a lot of young Hong Kong women are finding magazines with the Marc Jacobs pouch and she just has one copy left. I didn't pick it up. I got this one from the Hong Kong International Airport.
Most of the high end products you see I got it for a bargain; most of it are half the price here in the Philippines. Where in the Philippines would you see boxes of Lancome products sold on the streets? Sasa, Colour Mix and Bonjour does display them on the streets. I got Lancome eye make up remover, Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil and Kiehl's in Colour Mix.
I love going to Hong Kong Disneyland because it's near and I don't have to walk a lot to enjoy the theme park. Usually I don't buy souvenirs from Hong Kong Disneyland unless it is something useful so I got three adorable hair accessory and a make up pouch that's very sexy (it's in lace!) ^.^
Oh I forgot to include one of my prized possession now, MAC eye shadow in Goldmine, hihi! ^.^ I was looking for this for a long long time I even bought her sister Amber Lights just to soothe my lemming for this one. MAC Philippines doesn't carry Goldmine because it was released as a part of their Limited Edition line but I know it's really not LE and I was very happy Hong Kong carries Goldmine in their regular line. I hauled a bit from MAC because their MAC is cheaper than ours, 187 stippling brush is cheaper by Php600+. Sweet sweet bargain for me ^.^
