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.

Girls Trip to Lombok - Day 1

Carefree days is simple and luxurious. 

I went to Lombok early this month with my girlfriends. After years, finally we made our girls trip happened but too bad we were missing out Jane. We were all very excited because all of us have never been to Lombok before. 

The journey from Lombok to Gili Trawangan was a pain in the butt. After 3 hours flight from KL to Lombok airport, we have pre-booked our pick up car from airport to drive us to harbour. We then took another 35 mins speed boat ride to the island. Finally we engaged 2 cidomos (a small horse-drawn carriage) to travel to our hotel. There is no other options for get to your hotel, is either you walk or take a cidomo. 

After hours of journey, we finally arrived at Belukar Villa. This tropical resort is situated away from the busy, chaotic and tourist driven hot spots on Trawangan beach front. It can be quite a challenge to walk or ride in the evening because there are no street lights on the way back and it will be worse if your bicycles come without flash lights. We all ended up using our phone lights to bring us back. Apart from the challenging journey, I love the tropical design of this villa especially the semi-open air bathroom. At night, it is like shower beneath the stars. 

We headed out to Ombok Sunset where is a must-go when you are at Gili Trawangan. Placed in the shallow waters at the beach, this is a fun adventure which you can ride the swings and capture a great photo with the sunset. We didn't queue up on the first day as we were enjoying ourselves too much. 

When the sun set, we moved on to find some good food. It was another 10 to 15 mins bumpy ride from Ombak Sunset to the restaurant. I kind of enjoyed this bumpy ride because the sky was so clear at night, and I can see all the twinkling stars so effortlessly. The girls wanted to splurge a little on our first night, so we had seafood dinner which costed about RM 300. Quite a fair price. Some drinks after dinner, for sure. 

I love how travelling can bring friends together. I love how islands can make us appreciate how blessed we are living in a well developed country that transportation is so easy for us. I love how simple the life here is. 
I will share with you guys more about Lombok on the upcoming post.
