Melbourne Love - Part 2 where I saw snow

Melbourne travel journey continues...

That day boyfriend and I got up early to go  Queen Victoria Market. It was completely different from what I had expected. The morning market here is so much cleaner as compared to those back in my homeland, though I have yet been to any morning market but from what I know from my mom. I'm sure QVM is all the aunties' ultimate market shopping heaven! Everything here looks fresher, and of course cheaper. 
Trust me, this simple doughnut tasted so good!!!

If you happened to be visiting QVM, get yourself a cup of coffee from Market Lane Coffee!

We visited some vineyards at Yarra Valley and Lake Mountain to see snow. IT WAS MY FIRST TIME TO SEE AND TOUCH SNOWFLAKES!!! Sorry I have to capitalize this sentence to show my excitement :p Instead of taking pictures with wine, I decided to have gelato instead I guess I wanted to save up for that night korean sake dinner with my ex-primary school mates.

Mini photoshoot with the snow :)

My dearest friends brought us to Hwaro Korean BBQ and it was a wonderful night spent with them. It feels so great to finally catch up with them in Melbourne. Missing one girl, HuiMing who refused to meet us here. You were missing hell a lot of good times :p With good friends like these, the hours were short. 
Whenever I write about travel post, I have the urge that I need another vacation again! Hopefully the good things will fall into places and perhaps wishing everyone close year 2015 with a good ending.

3CE is now in Malaysia @ Sephora

Just me hanging out with Park Sora at 3CE event last month :D
Thank you Sephora Malaysia for the invitation, it was a pleasure to finally meet this celebrity Instagrammer/blogger or I would say Stylenanda ambassador in person. 

While waiting for Park Sora, there was a live demonstration showing us how to create daily Korean beauty look using 3CE products. And our long-awaited Sora was out interacting with us.

I used to purchase 3CE either from my friends who flew to Korean, or some online retailer blogshops who carry 3CE products. Now I can easily test and purchase directly at any Sephora stores in Malaysia. YAYSSSS to hassle-free purchase :D
We love Korean fashion; we love Korean make up; but most we love the number one Korean blogshop turned real store brand Stylenanda! And now, the Stylenanda beauty brand 3 Concept Eyes also known as 3CE is finally available to see and try on right here in Malaysia!

My shopping haul at Sephora went a little extreme. Their lipsticks are always my favourite, and it is my first time getting their foundation and eye palette. Can't wait to try them and perhaps show you the look on my social media platforms.

Girls trip to Lombok - Day 2

I am missing this clear blue sky now!

We explored Gili islands on the second day. We got up early to charter a private glass bottom boat. The trip took us to three snorkel spots around Gili Meno, with a stop on the island for lunch. The snorkeling was average, but we saw beautiful coral reefs, colourful schools of fish and some turtles. We paid about 900, 000 rph for 5 of us. If you hop on a public boat, I think the price will be slightly lower.

I was wearing Mermaid Dreams swimwear :)
The Gili islands provide the ideal escape from the fuss of other mainland destinations. This quiet paradise is a land of exotic beaches and swaying palms. 

If snorkeling doesn't take your fancy, you can simply sunbathe all day long by the sugar-soft sandy beach. We headed to the west side of the island after the day tour and watched the sun set behind Bali's Mount Agung. You can easily find a spot to chill around Ombok Sunset Bar.
Somebody didn't seem to enjoy suntan :p

We rode in the soft sand, chilled and drank under the stars, and I don't think I ever gonna forget about this place.
