    I went to PC Show just now to get my hard disk for my Macbook Pro. It’s like the fastest shopping trip to PC Show since Rui Yun and I were rushing to catch our Beauty and the Beast movie. Yes, it’s that Emma Watson movie! Hahaha. That’s actually the main reason why I wanted to watch it and we planned for it months ahead. We originally plan to go on Sunday instead of Saturday but I am having my Network Security project meeting so have to pre-pone it at the last minute notice. Thanks to her for accommodating and also helping me to shop around for the hard disk so I can just go there and get it immediately.

    I was talking to one of the salesgirl at Western Digital counter where I decided to buy my hard disk and this epic conversation came up.

    Q: Which hard disk do you recommend me to use if I want to transfer files from macOS to Windows OS (points to the 2 different hard disk options for Windows OS and macOS namely My Passport and My Passport for Mac)?

    A: Oh, that’s not possible. Perhaps you can consider the mobile wifi hard disk instead?

    Moral of the story: Make sure you know the basics before going to PC Show to buy your stuff. Discounted prices don’t come with sound advice. Lololol.

    Rui Yun and I were both amazed at her “sound” technological knowledge of the products that she is promoting.

    Anyway, in the end I got the My Passport (for Windows OS) and bought it home to reformat it by myself and started using it now. Hehe. I saved S$10 and got a better looking case (it’s orange!) too. Hehe. :smile: 

    Oh, I have been posting quite a lot for someone who is supposedly on hiatus. Oops.

    I realised that I didn’t blog about my new Beoplay H3 ANC. Well, I got it from TANGS and got 6% cash rebate and S$25 gift card since I used my StanChart credit card to pay for it. It costs S$339 after discount but after all the rebates and gift card that I got, it became less than S$300. Well, that means I am less guilty of my purchase? Hahaha.

    Anyway, it is an awesome looking earphones with a balanced sound. ANC sucks though but I’m not going to complain much with its superb sound quality. Okay, fine. Actually I am a bit regretting because of the poor ANC. But the next option is Bose QC20 and I am not really keen to get that because I already owned a QC25. Oh well… I am using it as frequently as I can now to make full use of my expensive purchase. Hopefully this is going to be the last expensive purchase that I am going to make in the next few months. I seriously need to save money… Bleh…

    So now I am a proud owner of both Beoplay A2 and H3 ANC. I really love the sound quality of my Beoplay A2. It makes me want to stay in my bedroom all day long because of its hifi-like sound quality!

    I was going through some of my old blog posts and I realised that it’s been quite some time since I blogged about my skin care regime! My last blog post on my skin care regime is back in 2014 in this post. :shocked: Anyway, it’s time for a checkin status on my current skincare regime. I have become lazier over the last 2 years too. Hehe.  :crazy: 

    I’m going to follow the similar format of my old blog post… Well, to keep things consistent (actually it’s cause I’m lazy to come up with a new format, hehehe)

    Day care

    1. Cleanser (I’m currently using Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Mousse Cleanser)
    2. Muji Light Toning Water High Moisture (I’m still using it after so many years so you know this must be one of my holy grail products!)
    3. Sulwhasoo Essential Rejuvenating Eye Cream EX
    4. Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence or Laneige Water Bank Essence EX
    5. Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream
    6. Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion
    7. Belif Sun Powder

    Night care

    1. Cleanser (I’m currently using Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Mousse Cleanser)
    2. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Mask or Innsifree Jeju Volcanic Mousse Mask or Eucerin scrub or Innisfree Jeju Volcanic pore strips or CNP Laboratory pore strips or Innisfree Second Skin masks (I used one of these products occasionally)  
    3. Muji Light Toning Water High Moisture (I’m still using it after so many years so you know this must be one of my holy grail products!)
    4. Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum EX (I hardly use it but I still use it when I am not that lazy, hahaha)
    5. Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence or Laneige Water Bank Essence EX
    6. Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream

    Most of the products are the ones that I have been using for many years and I’m still using them. My holy grail products are as follows:

    There are some products that I doubt I will be buying as I want to keep my costs low and find cheaper alternatives:

    I do need to look for a new eye cream after I finish my Sulwhasoo one. Any recommendations?

    Now that I am in my mid twenties, I have started using more makeup. Well, I’m actually starting to like makeup. Hehe. I even got myself proper foundation and lip brushes! Maybe I will blog about my makeup routine on weekends in future. I don’t wear much makeup on weekdays, other than the Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion.

    I contacted Akemi Uchi via Facebook and got a reply from them saying that I can collect the free towel by dropping by at their shop again. They also reserve the orange towel for me too. Hehe. Not bad eh? The power of social media and I got what I was supposed to get in the end. 

    So when the cashier “forgot” or really forgot about your free gift in future, you can go to social media and ask about it. Who knows? You might just get the free gift that you are entitled to!

    Not a bad ending from my previous blog entry after all…

    I went to Plaza Singapura and spotted Akemi Uchi sales and got myself a new mattress protector, pillow protectors and new bedsheets. Hehe, new bedsheets after a long time. :smile: Sadly, the cashier was not very honest and didn’t give me the free towels even though I spent more than S$80 for my entire purchase. I was supposed to get it but she didn’t give it to me. I only realised it when I got home and saw Akemiuchi’s Facebook post here. That’s dishonest of her but oh well… I sent a message on Facebook to Akemiuchi but didn’t get any reply. Let’s see if I get any reply on Monday. I will probably do a followup post here too.
