On Monday, we went to Hanover before leaving to Berlin later that evening. Hubby was there for work, I tagged along and did some quick sight-seeing during the day. Hanover (German: Hannover), the capital city of the state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen) is approximately 3 hours train ride from Heidelberg. The city is probably most well-known for hosting the annual computer and IT trade fair, … Continue reading Day Trip: Hanover
Now that it seems clear that we’re going to settle in Germany for at least the next one year, I’ve decided to add another category called Life in Germany to document or share my experience living here as a non EU-citizen. After some encounters with fellow ‘aliens’ (‘Aliens Office’ or Ausländeramt is responsible for your Residence Permit application), I thought that it would be interesting … Continue reading Day trip: Idar-Oberstein & Flugaustellung P.

HBO released the first official photos of the highly anticipated Game of Thrones season 7 in less than 24 hours ago and folks went crazy with some real deep, thorough analysis of each shot! If you’re a GoT fan like yours truly, this fan behaviour won’t surprise you at all. I was barely awake when I saw someone posted this in Facebook and needless to … Continue reading Short N.

Recently I decided that I’d slowly replace the non cruelty-free brands that I use in my daily life to a safer, cruelty-free brands. This is not an easy change because most of my favourite makeup products are from non-cruelty-free companies or belong to parent companies which are not cruelty-free. When it comes to mascara, I already found my HG mascaras from both high-end and drugstore … Continue reading KIKO Cosmetics Extra Sculpt Mascara (Waterproof)
Frohe Ostern! That’s Happy Easter in German 😊 Hubby and I went for a short walk to a local cattle farm called Bierhelderhof. Today was my first time visiting the place. The moment we stepped out of the car, we were welcomed by the overwhelming smell of what I’d described as very similar to a particular Sarawakian delicacy which is fermented fish😨😷😁. Hubby simply said, … Continue reading Easter Saturday.

Happy Friday, folks! We’re driving to Munich in an hour so this is really just a quick post. I promised myself to post something by Friday and I totally forgot about it until half an hour ago. Some weeks ago I was thinking about writing a post about my complete skin care routine and every day makeup look. Halfway through compiling all the products I’m … Continue reading I have changed.
I am totally out of rhythm with my blogging schedule right now. I don’t have a rigid schedule but I have a weekly plan that I follow so that I have the motivaton to post regularly and avoid making my blog content feels like it’s all over the place. For example, Monday and/or Tuesday is for beauty or makeup related posts and Thursday is for … Continue reading A little update.
I’m one of those few people who never jumped on the intense highlighting craze. While it may look pretty on pictures, I don’t think it’ll work well on my textured skin. Plus, I’ve gotten to the age where I tend to go for the more ‘natural’ look on most days. I think makeup is all about personal preference. Some people like blinding strip of highlights … Continue reading Wet n Wild’s Coloricon Bronzer (Reserve Your Cabana)
I love watching ‘Empties videos’ on Youtube, not that I enjoy watching people showing their trash but rather to see what products people love using and their quick reviews on said products. Some product reviews are unnecessarily long and a drag to watch even if I was originally interested in the products mentioned. Product reviews on empties videos are rather short and straightforward which is … Continue reading Product Empties March 2017
