AMW Bulletin: Ways to Make People Happy!

I know I am!

I am meeting up with the relatives and I have been too busy to even shop for Christmas!  I know some of you may be on the same shoes as I am!  Thanks to companies sending me emails giving me ideas on how to spend your hard earned money to make your love ones happy!

The first time I visited Sasa and Bonjour in Hong Kong, it was "heaven" not for makeup lovers but fragrance enthusiasts like yours truly!  Sniffing various fragrances and spritzing them to test how they work with our body chemistry gives me the natural high!

Thanks to Retail companies who opened Art of Scent, Perfume Express and now FRESH Fragrance Bar.  All three have the same concept, bringing in fragrance loving people into one place for fun fragrance shopping!  

I still haven't visited the store but will definitely drag my lazy bum to Eastwood Libis to shop for fragrance to one of my family member who's into fragrances (aside from myself).  I won't tell who as he/she may be reading this post!  *laughs*

Brands that I am interested in that are available in this gorgeous Boutique --- Christina Aguilera, Dunhill, Swarovski, Thierry Mugler, United Colors of Benetton, Perry Ellis, etc...

Or, if fragrance isn't an option, there's always an easier way by sending your loved ones Gift Cards!  I learned this via my blogger friend and I think it's a great idea!

I'm 100% Chinese and you know how we love our "red envelopes" or "ang pao".  Today's generation, giving out "red envelopes" still excites us but we like to personalize it by showing the recipient how much we thought of them!

The problems with gift cards probably is their lack of variety!  For Gift Card Co., you just pick the card and your loved ones will choose their gift from these categories ----
  • Apparel - Nike, Planet Sports, Nautica, The Athlete's Foot
  • Food & Beverages - Red Mango, TGIF, Italianni's, Fish & Co., Flapjacks, Krazy Garlic, Pig Out, Ma Maison, Bulgogi Brothers, Red Crab Alimango House, Clawdaddy, Crustacia, Sugarhouse
  • Recreation - The Spa, Crabtree & Evelyn, Fitness First, Blow Up Babies, Celebrity Nails, Lay Bare Waxing Salon
Feel free to LIKE them on Facebook to get more ideas on the brands and promos!

And, if I may have to add, Christmas isn't Christmas without giving something back!  I wasn't around the country when Typhoon Sendong happened!  I want to thank Patty for sharing this information to us and I want to share it to you!
