Eastern Europe: Shopping & giveaway!

So since we did more sight seeing than shopping in Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Slovenia, we save the shopping til the last day. It's in one of the factory outlet in Venice, so Venice is actually the 5th and last country we visited this time.

We din't do any sight seeing here, just shopping, before catching our flight back to Istanbul then KL.

Currency used:
Croatia: Croatia Kuna (HRK)
HRK 1 = RM 0.54
(Certain shops accept Euros as well)

Bosnia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Venice: Euros
1 EUR = RM 4.20

 Sunny day this morning!

 The outlet is not big, unlike those in US or UK, but at least some brands and boutiques we can shop

Here's what I got:

 A sling bag for myself ;)

 Belts for sis in law and her hubby

A bag for sis in law

 Some L'occitane products

 Toys for Aden

 Our family tees, got this from Dubrovnik

 More clothes for the little ones

 Hubby's shirts and innerwear for me 


 And more chocolates!!

 Shoes from Timberland for Aden and hubby, I din't manage to get any shoes for myself, cause it's approaching winter and most shops sell boots only >.<

 Fridge magnet and postcard 

Soaps made from salt (which they say a very famous product from East Europe), and a box of local product (olive oil, honey, apricot spread)

Since thing in East Europe is not so cheap (unlike in Paris/Italy), hubby decided to save those Euros instead (who knows we get to go Europe again next time, wahaha).

But I do have something small to give to one lucky reader! Which includes some product which I sell in my online business ;)

To join, simply name 2 CITIES which I've been to during this trip (super easy la ^^) with relevant comment, please also include your name.

Giveaway ends 26/11/2014 5pm, opens to all Malaysians. 

Good luck!! ^^

Part 2: Dubrovnik
Part 5: Slovenia

  14. wah, so your travelogue is coming to an end already?? last country is Venice??? errr, I would presume you are trying to say the city Venice in the north of the country Italy?? or call me jakun, there is really a small country named Venice??

    aiyoh, if that's the Venice (that I presume) you went, how can you just went shopping in the outlet and no sight-seeing at all?? if possible, I would tell the tour guide I will go out explore the place while the other members are spending time in the shop.. a couple of hours also good for sight-seeing mah.. or maybe the outlet is too far from any place and you have been to Venice before so you didn't plan to do that??

    I have been to Venice in 1998 and I love the place so much, though it's always packed with tourists.. if possible I would like to visit this place again actually... :)

  15. shopping in the outlets also happy la, I guess you just didn't hsve time to go sight-seeing, aiyoh, the last place just for shopping is quite a special arrangement huh?? hehe..

    look at the stuffs you have bought, wow, must be cheaper getting thrm there huh?? Prada, Gucci, L'Occitane.. and oooh, I saw some chocolates that I like also, Ritter Sports is always one of my favorite!! and the toys for Aden are so cute, hehe.. the family tea with Adriatic Sea also nice.. so when are you going to have a family portrait again wearing this tee?? seems it's been a while we last seen your family portrait leh~~

  16. woot woot!! got giveaway!! and wonder what you are giving away?? something from the loots you have got?? hehe.. wah, cincai anything also looks good woh~~ :)

  17. 第一张照片将国外的悠闲和写意展露无遗,盐皂的用途是什么?我对这个兴趣最大。
    我的答案是Venice & Zegreb~

  28. spree!! Good luck to the lucky winner!

  29. Looks like you had a really fun trip Hayley! :)

    Yeah, I guess it depends which places you go to. I found that Georgia is cheaper than Northern Europe or Western Europe too (especially the bigger cities) and you can get a lot more Euro for Euro. It's an ex Soviet state though and some things are more expensive than the stores in say, London.

    I'm really interested to go to Bosnia, maybe I'll plan that after the Japan trip!

    The answers for your giveaway:

    1. Mostar in Bosnia
    2. Dubrovnik in Croatia

    I made sure to choose the cities and not towns. ;)

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

Hi world! It's been a while! Hope you are doing fine! ;)
Life is busy as usual, and extremely tired lately due to the crazy weather and sick bugs came visited me :( 
Got to sleep soon, just wanna come in here to make my blog a bit alive, haha!
Take care and have a nice week ahead!

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
