I have received 5 Memeboxes since I started in August. So far I like most of the selections in the boxes. Though I think I may have a problem. I keep on ordering more and more boxes. Probably more than I could use in a few years. Oh well. The extra products are good gifts for family and friends, especially my baby brother and his constant trouble with acne.

I looked through the boxes I have ordered and thought I would post the five of the boxes that I am really looking forward to based on their themes.

Memebox Special #42 - OMG 3

As mentioned in the previous post, I bought the OMG 3 in a bundle with My Cute Wishlist #3 from Membox. The bundle cost $58.99USD including $6.99USD for shipping. The box alone cost $29USD plus $3.50USD for shipping. The bundle shipped via express post so I received it in 5 days.

The box contains 5 full sized items. It includes Cleomee''s Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist, which was released as the spoiler item.

Memebox - My Cute Wishlist #3

I got addicted to Memebox, a Korean subscription box from an unboxing of the first My Cute Wishlist. By the time I found Memebox, they already released the second and third in the series. I managed to buy the My Cute Wishlist #3 and OMG #3 bundle before it sold out. 

The bundles cost $58.99 USD including the $6.99 USD for shipping. Bundles are automatically upgraded to express shipping so it arrives at my door step much quicker than Registered Mail. The downside is that it requires signatures. The box shipped out October 15th and I received it on October 20th. That is 5 days including the weekend, pretty fast compared to 20 days. 

I already saw the spoilers for the box and was disappointed by the collection, especially with the sun cream. But in real life it is actually ok, it does fit with the cute theme. 


GRRR .. I just found out that Blogger deleted half of my Hong Kong post and I posted without knowing. Grrrrr.  Will have to re-finish it when I have time...

Memebox #13 - Cooling Care

Back in September I managed to grab the restock of Cooling Care on Memebox. This is one of the boxes I wanted to try after seeing reviews online, primarily for the sleeping pack (I love sleeping packs/leave on masks). The box was $23 USD plus $6.99USD for shipping. Though it was upgraded to express for free! I also ordered  the Dear by Enprani Bounce Cheese Cream since many raved about it. I have no idea why I did not get the Wine & Cheese box which includes a full size of bounce cheese cream. They were shipped together on September 24th, and I received it October 3rd. It was actually a day slower than my RoseRoseShop order that was sent via Registered Mail. Hopefully it is a fluke.

I am very amused by the way they wrapped the extra bubble wrap. Reminds me of the yangmeori towel hats you see in dramas..

RoseRoseShop Order

Yay! I finally finished my nonstop blabbering about my trip! I am trying to play catch up right now on blog posts and I am finally close! I placed a big order from RoseRoseShop after cancelling my Tony Moly + Holika Holika box from Memebox. The unboxing of both boxes showed it contained products that I am not interested in so I decided to hop on RRS and see what I can find for roughly the same amount of money.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong was my last stop of the trip. I was there for a few days but mainly relaxed and did not do much. I did go to four baking classes so that is the highlight of the HK trip. Hopefully this won't get too long winded like my other posts.. Though knowing me.. It probably will and I do apologize in advance. 
Snapped while I was on the express train to the airport. 

Taiwan Day 5

Day 4 was our last full day in Taipei so we decided to visit some of the museums. We visited the National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall and the National Palace Museum. On our way to the memorial hall, we passed the site of the Taipei dome. It is apparently a bigger version of the Taipei Arena and to be completed in 2015. 

Taiwan Day 4

Day 4 was the one that I am the most excited about! It is the night that I FINALLY get to attend the concert of my favourite band in the world, S.H.E! This is a Taiwanese band that consist of three members, Selina Ren, Hebe Tian, and Ella Cheng. They are super popular in Taiwan and I have been following them since junior high. They rarely do concerts outside of Asia, let alone in Cow town. So imagine how happy I was when I found out I was going to be in Asia when their latest concert is going to be held in Taipei. And imagine how happy I was when I went online and managed to buy a single ticket after hours of trying! Now I can tick one off my bucket list!

Taiwan Day 3

My cousins and I separated on day 3 as they headed to Qingjing farm and I stayed behind. The reason why I stayed behind is because I originally book a needle felting class on day 4 and was going to join them at the farm until we realized it would be impossible to return to Taipei in time. So I ended up staying behind and my instructor rescheduled the class to day 3 so I can schedule a cooking class on day 4. YAY! Classes during vacation! FUN!
Guess which one is mine!

Taiwan Day 2

Day two in Taipei was planned to visit Jiufen & Shifen. These two places are gorgeous, especially Shifen. The thing with Shi fen is that there are seven stops and the only way to get there is a train that runs every hour. Jiufen has gorgeous view of the mountains and the sea. It is also where most of the Spirited Away art is from. Especially the street of the red lanterns. The view and food are pretty wonderful but it is a full day trip.

We started the day by getting breakfast from 7-11. I absolutely love 7-11 in Taiwan. There are tons of them. There was about 3 from our hostel to the train station entrance. They offer tons of food and the workers are really nice. They have everything from fresh sushi to bentos, and they offer to heat it up for you. They also have a collection of stamps program that you can trade in for things like plats. I will elaborate more on that later. I started the morning with a steaming hot spicy pork bun. The bun was so yummy. The bun was fluffy, the filling was just enough spiciness and I like the pork proportion. Great start to the morning!!

Taipei Day 1

Hello~ So on my last post I finished blabbering on about Tianjin and now I can finally move on to Taipei.. It's a LONG story I have to split out into different posts.

I been meaning to post but I am always tired after work. So I am giving myself  a challenge to do at least one blog post per week. It's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend so yay~~~ Long weekend and maybe more time to finally finish blogging about my vacation.

Alright, back to my main point.. And I would like to apologize for my crappy formatting ahead of time. I definitely was not thinking about how the pictures would look like on a blog when I was taking them.

Tianjin (it's really about food)

My big trip for the year was primarily to visit Tianjin for my good friend's wedding. We met while she was an international student in Cowtown and she decided to get married with her boyfriend while visiting home last year and moved to Australia. Then this year, her husband finished his schooling and they finally have time to hold the wedding. I always told her I would go to her wedding no matter where it is, and since I haven't used up any of my vacation time this year, why not right?
This is the adorable face of the culprit
