The title says it all! There are only two things that I love to do in Hong Kong and that is eat & shop followed by shop & eat! Hehe!!! Admittedly, I didn’t do my usual Hong Kong splenderiffic spending spree due to lack of funding (dammit for being unemployed except for one day of the week!) but I still tried my best. I was in Hong Kong for 11 days so I have split the haulage up into a few parts. And I did buy other stuff for family and friends but I will only feature the relevant stuff I bought for little old me and my Justification For Purchase (JFP). All prices are in HKD. So are we ready? Let’s go…
Day 1 – Shopping in Mong Kok Street Markets
Hello Kitty glasses ($40) – JFP : I heart Hello Kitty forever!
Pink A5 envelope clutch ($35) – JFP : It’s pink and envelope clutches are so trendy at the moment. It also comes with a detachable wrist strap and a long strap. Saw the same bag for sale in malls for more than double the price and I was chuffed because I had definitely scored a bargain! I went back to the same stall later to get another clutch which you will see in a later post.
3 x towels of Hello Kitty, Angry Birds and Doraemon ($100) – JFP : I only use towels with cartoon characters because I come from a family of 9 and we had to distinguish which towel belonged to who…(I don’t wanna use the same towel as my teenage brother!!) – so it’s a lifelong habit now.
Day 2 – Shopping in Tsim Sha Tsui Streets
Fluffy bear scarf with hat and pockets ($60) – JFP : As it was Winter, HK nights got a bit chilly so I needed something to warm me up. And it helps that this scarf is a cutie.
Black fluffy cat big bag ($80) – JFP : The cat’s big eyes looked at me and said, “Buy me now!” so I was only obeying orders!
Stitch iPhone cover ($60) – JFP : *squee* The ears pop out when you press the top button. So adorbs. How could I resist? All of my friends and colleagues who have seen this Stitch cover love it too!
Day 3 – Shopping in Tai Po & Sha Tin Malls
Inseta H2O Make-Up Removing Lotion ($98) – JFP : I wanted to see how it differs from the highly popular Bioderma Crealine H2O
Uniqlo Ultra Seamless Brief ($79) – JFP : I have VPL 365 days a year so I thought it was time to check out seamless undies!
Muji SPF 25 Cream Foundation ($80) – JFP : I was panicking because I hadn’t bought any make-up products and it was Day 3 already…so I bought a foundie from Muji which was getting discontinued. WTF? *shakes my head* The worst JFP ever!!!
Muji Blusher & Eyeshadow Combo ($100) – JFP : Pretty in pink! And then I saw the same product in Tine’s haul! We have similar taste – yay!
Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in 04 Cherry ($?? ) – JFP : I’m a Lip Stalker so if it’s pink and cute, I gotta have it!
What do you think of my haul so far?
I have come to the conclusion that I buy stuff that is cheap / pink / Hello Kitty / cute!
Stay tuned for Hong Kong Haul Part 2 tomorrow – same time, same place.
