AMW Reads: For the Month of October

This month, has been very meaningful!  The start of the month was like a fairytale for me!  My dream to travel Korea came true!  I've been watching Korean series as early as 2002 when I first watched "All About Eve" in China on TV and decided to purchase the whole VCD (yup, that old) *laughs* series and watched it in Mandarin!  My Mandarin definitely improved and it was in Winter when I watched it!  I was tucked under heavy blanket with a portable heater beside me as I sipped on my favorite green tea (I wasn't a coffee adddict then) and swore not to make friends with Kim So Yeon as Huh Young-M.  Bad bad girl!

Well, for this Month, a couple of my friends who adopted me shared the same love for travel!  Not all of them traveled though but there are a couple of posts that reminded me of my travel as well!  Ahhh, where will my next adventure be???

PB of My Women Stuff went "Ni Hao Shanghai!".  I missed this place when I read her post as I've been in Shanghai for a couple of times!  The most recent one was 2 years ago when I visited my brother who works as an architect there!  Funny thing, my brother gave me a call as I was reading her post and invited me to visit him again this coming February.  Told him I have to save up first and will visit him later than the said date!  Oooohhhhh, "Xiao Long Bao"!  I want to eat!!!

Jenn of Lipglosseater on the other hand says "She's Back!!!" when she came back telling us stories on her recent Bangkok, Thailand trip!  Gosh!  I went to Bangkok several years ago and I wasn't into makeup back then!  I am literally salivating with her NARS haul plus the food she tried!  I wasn't a pig back I am!!! :)

Connie of Skin Deco stayed in Malaysia but her recent post on "Squish Boob: It's Monumental" made me want to visit Kuala Lumpur all over again!  I went with my friends in College and we've seen basically most of the tourist sites!  But now that I've got wonderful friends there, I'd love to see what I missed in KL! 

Not everyone have the luxury of time and money to travel, that's why establishments that has "travel theme" would be great for people to experience "travel" at the comfort of their own country!  

Xin of Prettybeautiful blogged about an Air Travel Concept called Brow and Waxing Destination! Themed rooms are a great hit nowadays!  I've dined into restaurants locally that has private function rooms with theme as well!  I wish more and more establishments will adopt that same idea down here! That'll be fun!

Since we're still talking about travel, I've always been a light packer but I've always carry a tiny sample size of Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil to remove my makeup at night!  I'm almost done with it so I'm worrying what I need to bring on my next travel as most of my makeup removers are full size!  Bee of Beetrice's Reviews talks about Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets and I find its such a great idea for travel!  I don't wear much makeup during travel so these types of makeup removers will do the trick!

Traveling light will never be light if you're into different shades of lipsticks even during travel!  I usually carry just 1 or 2 tubes of lipsticks and I'm fine with it!  To some who likes more, Eli of So Loverly talks about Bobbi Brown's Lip and Cheeks To Go palette and I find it quite sleek and perfect for travel!

And packing on a tiny eyeshadow palette wouldn't hurt especially if you're into pastel colors!  Yani of Red Luxcious Lips found three nice shades from Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Colour Trio in Opera and she used it in such a lovely way!  You must check her created!  Her eyes are gorgeous!

I am seriously excited on my next travel adventure!
I've got a couple listed down on top of my head but for now!
I have to work work work to earn earn earn and travel travel travel
(That sounds like a song right?)

Happy Halloween!
