Althea Beauty Haul

Hello there! I’m happy to writing about a haul today! This time, it’s a beauty haul. 😀

I’ve waited for this package to arrive for days, and it’s finally here!

I bought a few things from Althea Korea, the one based in Malaysia. They are expanding their business to other countries too! 😀  

Althea allows me to buy all the Korean beauty goodies that I may or may not find in Malaysia, plus, no need to go all the way to Korea, even though I would love to visit, also it’s for a cheaper price too!

As for shipping, it’s free as long as the cart reaches RM150! Start shopping!

The packaging is the cutest, all pink!IMG_7449

It’s packed so nicely, with the bubble wrap and pink papers!

The products are either individually wrapped or wrapped together in bubble wrap which is good.

These are all the products I got! From lipsticks to nose packs. Haha.

IMG_7481

I’m most excited about the Innisfree’s Creammellow lipsticks, I haven’t seen this product in the Innisfree here, so I’m excited to try it out!

IMG_7482

I bought it in #04. Coral Tee Jamong (left) and #10. Latte Brown (right). I’ve yet to swatch it, maybe in another post I’ll do a swatch. 🙂

Closer look at the two colours. 😀

This is the Blingsome Lip Tattoo in 05. Lady Tension, which my sister wanted. Tried this out on my hand, it looks super red but after I peeled it off, it’s quite subtle.

IMG_7486

These are the Etude House Play 101 Pencil in the number 30 in a creamy formula and 41 in a glittery formula.

IMG_7487

The dark purple on the left is in the number 30 and the brownish colour is number 41. Can’t wait to try these out!

IMG_7480

A marshmallow puff from Too Cool for School, a basically a beauty blender, does the same job I guess.

IMG_7469

It’s so bouncy!

IMG_7488

I bought 5 of these 3 step nose pack sheets because I tried it once here and I loved it! These are from Nature Republic. They’re really good.

And lastly, I got a free gift, a hyaluronic acid mask from Etude House. Bonus!

I’ll definitely purchase again once my products run out. 😀

Love this service!

Till next time.

3 Lessons

Group photo with HIGH4! Spot me! Behind Youngjun, wearing white. 😀 

Hi! Hope you guys are having a good day! Right, I’m back with a reflection post. Since I have gone to two HIGH4 showcases at Summit Subang USJ and Hartamas Shopping Centre and also the press conference, I learnt 3 things from these 3 days.

I have to say this weekend has been one of the most eventful weekends I’ve had in my entire life. Besides the HIGH4 events, on Saturday night, I attended an event called, Relay For Life, to support those who are battling cancer, survived cancer and also pay respect to those who lost the battle to cancer. I didn’t stay long, but twas was a good experience.

So, moving on to the first lesson I learnt during the 3 days is when you know how to speak the language of the group, in this case, Korean, it will be so much better because there will be more conversations during the album signing. There were a few girls who spoke fluent Korean and they had actual conversations with HIGH4! Alex spoke English, which is really good for those who don’t speak Korean. During the first album signing, I started off with speaking Korean to Youngjun, conversation as below:-

Me: 안녕하세요! [Hello]
Youngjun: 안녕하세요. (shyly) [Hello]
Me: 이거 (referring to the album) 너무 좋아요! [This (referring to the album) really like!]
Youngjun: 고마워. [Thanks]
Then next was Myunghan!

Me: 안녕하세요! [Hello!]
Myunghan: 안녕하세요! (energetically) [Hello!]
Me: You’re so cute. (By this time, I went blanked out and all the Korean words I know have gone to the back of my mind.)
Myunghan: Thanks! *high 5*

Sunggu’s turn!
Me: Hi!
Sunggu: *smiles* ‘speaks in Korean’, which I roughly translates to, “Are you Malaysian,” I assume that’s what he asked, this is possibly because he heard I spoke Korean to Youngjun and Myunghan. Then I said, “Yes, I’m Malaysia, do I look Korean?” He then, gave me a high5.

Alex turn! Easiest cause he speaks English!
Alex: Thanks for coming today!
Me: Welcome! Come back for a full concert next time, like a big concert!
Alex: We surely will! *high5*

So, speaking the language does make a difference! I’m still learning Korean, it’s not easy but I try, by watching so many K-drama and Korean variety shows, I’m able to learn from there. (Y)

Second lesson! Don’t be shy during shows like this, just do it, answer questions, scream, give lots of reactions to the group! Giving reactions to the members in my opinion is really important, not only they’ll notice you, but also they’ll remember you (certain cases).

During the Summit Subang USJ showcase, I really gave all out to them while HIGH4 were performing, Myunghan kept coming to this side, which is really good fanservice! He kept smiling this side, and even pointed to our direction. Speaking of which, Myunghan’s fan service is really the best! Youngjun also gave lots of eye contact during the Summit showcase! Then when I went for the second album signing in Hartamas, I told Youngjun that I actually went to yesterday’s show (Summit’s show), he says he remembers me, see! Important! I was actually quite surprised that he remembers, Alex also said he remembers, I think the seating also plays a part here as I sat right in front, but giving good reaction also is important! Scream, shout, wave your hands, don’t just film the entire showcase, enjoy it!

Lastly! Going early to the location, whether it is to line up for the best seats or to check out the location, think of where you want to sit. Even though I know Summit’s layout, I still went early, possibly too early to check out the place. I went about three hours earlier, to eat and all that jazz. For the Hartamas show, I didn’t go early as it was a last minute program and when I got there, HIGH4 arrived shortly after I arrive, but they still had to do their hair and makeup, so I wasn’t late. The MC, Lynn actually recognises me from the Summit show and possibly the press conference, I’m not sure, but she definitely recognise me. Haha. Side tracked, as fans, going early to queue is a good idea especially if the seats are not seated. I didn’t get seats for the Hartamas show, so I had to decide which side I want to stand to get the best view, and so I decided to stand at the console area which also the way they go up the stage from. I got a lot of high5s from them on that day! Bonus!

These lessons can be applied to any other showcases or concerts in the future!

Till next time!

Finally the group comes out and performed their first song, Day by Day! There were a slight problem with the microphone but they quickly resolved it, I chanted “괜찮아, 괜찮아” which translate to “It’s okay” to give them support as they looked flustered at that time. (Y) They sound so good live!

Aegyo time! They were all asked to do aegyo on the spot, though Sunggu really wanted to sing, but the fans really wanted to see his aegyo, so he did it! They all felt embarrassed after doing the aegyo! It was really cute, but the members couldn’t bear to watch it! I was curling my fingers and cringing the entire time! Hahaha.

Goes to the wall and hide after the aegyo. Hahaha.

The scenario for this is as Myunghan as the girlfriend and Alex as the boyfriend, they re a couple, Myunghan wants the water and asks Alex to get it in a whiney aegyo manner, it was extremely cute!

HIGH4 Press Conference in Malaysia

Hey guys! I was invited to attend HIGH4’s press conference that happened this afternoon at 3pm-4pm at One Utama’s Neway. It’s my first press conference!

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

I arrived at the location about 2.30pm because I was coming from class, luckily I made it on time!

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

Finally the boys make their appearance! First impression, very handsome in real life!

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

Self introduction! From left to right, Alex the rapper, Sunggu the leader and vocalist, Myunghan the vocalist, and Youngjun the rapper and maknae of the group!

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

The question was, “Who is the most handsome in the group” and they all point to each other! The MC was Lynn, who also will be MC-ing for the rest of the shows.

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCEHIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

Q&A session, the MC took two questions from the floor and she also asked a few questions on behalf. Questions such as ideal girlfriend, all the members have different answers, for example, Sunggu said a girl with a nice smile, Alex said a girl who knows when to be serious and is humorous, Myunghan said his ideal type would be an innocent girl, lastly Youngjun said a girl who will only love him.

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

This was when the MC asked who do you think is the laziest? And Alex pointed to himself, and also said that he’s not that lazy just not as hardworking as the rest of the members. But I’m sure they’re all hardworking!

Myunghan was all smiles during the event! So lovable!

The four members also showed off their talent during the event such as rapping, singing and also beatboxing! They are so talented! Alex even rapped without MR! Very professional.

And we bid goodbye for now. 😦

The event ended with Myunghan saying, “Terima Kasih” but he did not pronounce it correctly, so the crowd corrected him until he got it right! 😀

The group then headed off to their first showcase at Seremban Prima.

There was also refreshments for the media and blogger who attended the press conference but I had to leave, so I didn’t manage to enjoy that. 😦

HIGH4 PRESS CONFERENCE

This was a very interesting experience, I hope I get to go to more press conferences!

I really apologise for the bad photo quality! I didn’t bring my camera, thinking my iPhone is sufficient enough, but it was not, I’ve learnt a lesson today, so now onwards, any events, I’ll bring my camera! 🙂

I think this is the closest I can get to a K-Pop idol, it was a pretty small group so it was quite private and intimate which is nice. (Update: I actually got closer with them during their showcase in Summit while they sign the album and also we took a group photo!) ❤

Remember to catch them live from 4th September at Seremban Prima at 7pm, 5th September at Summit Subang USJ 4pm, 6th September at Hartamas Shopping Centre 2.30pm and also join them as they hold a private celebration party at Silka Hotel on 6th September at 6pm (everyone is invited)! (For entrance fee for the celebration party, check out my previous post about the entire event.)

Till tomorrow!

Favourites

IMG_7385

Finally I am going to write on my three favourite items as of now. I’ve been putting this off for quite a while, heheh. The Face Shop’s Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel, Innisfree’s No-Sebum Mineral Powder and lastly Shu Uemura’s cleansing oil, which I got from a long time ago, I just recently started using, so I don’t think it’s available in the market anymore. Anyways, these three things, I use them everyday, except when I get too lazy, other than that, it’s a staple.

//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsIMG_7387//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_7388//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsIMG_7390

This product is actually translucent powder with lots of ingredients from Jeju that can help control oil and keep the face matte, and this product also have a lot of usage, see it here. I love this! So compact and easy to use, it’s affordable too! Ps. I love the hint of herbal scent, I find that soothing. (Y)

IMG_7394//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsIMG_7395//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Soothing gel from The Face Shop, it is really easy to get aloe gel which is also good but I prefer the bamboo gel to the aloe gel because the consistency is thicker and bouncier, I feel the aloe gel is more watery. It’s so cooling and the packaging is so cute, it really looks like a bamboo in the store when it’s all stacked up.

IMG_7396//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsIMG_7397

Lastly, this pretty cleansing oil, the packaging is so cute! This smells like the spa, so relaxing every time I use it. It does clean off really well too, I use it to double cleanse and also remove makeup. I love this! 

That’s all for now. 

Till next time!
