Yay! Finally, I have time to jot down my travel's trace in here. Anyway, finally decided to blog because I have lots of pictures to share. Guess everyone has the same situation when picking the exclusive picture out of trillion photos we have taken during travel #biggestproblemever

Okay back to topic. I am lucky enough to be one of blogger went to Korea with THEFACESHOP during the last December's Winter season. I would like to express my gratitude to THEFACESHOP for this amazing opportunity. We went to Seoul Korea for a 4 days 3 nights trip and the main key of the show is to introduce the 4 new products that will be launched in 2017 and also get to learned the latest Korean makeup trend with some amazing activities included.

We're reaching Korea in the evening. The day was dark and the weather is probably about 1°C, it is so cold! Since I'm just reached Korea so today will be a fun and easy day. Thank you THEFACESHOP for the amazing room at Hotel Lotte MyeongDong which can stay at the hotspot area in Korea. The famous little shopping center is just located beside the hotel and just a short walking distance to MyeongDong Night Market.

Thank you THEFACESHOP for the beautiful stay at Hotel Lotte MyeongDong Seoul

My fantastic view from my room. So this is the busy night of MyeongDong~๐Ÿ’–

Thank you for the hearty welcome chocolate. This Krispy green tea & strawberry ๐Ÿซ is yum๐Ÿ˜‹

Of course had to leave my footprint at MyeongDong Night Market. We decided to find some local street foods as our dinner and of course... shopping too.... ๐Ÿ˜†

Yum yum Mandu (means dumpling in Korean) but taste not really that good and the cold weather make it even suck like I'm eating a frozen food ๐Ÿ˜•

Let me introduce you... this is my handsome and cute boyfriend, Mr.Bear ๐Ÿ˜

Of course, have to visit The Line Cafe ๐Ÿ˜

I ended up calling for room service after visit MyeongDong Night Market because the street foods were too meh๐Ÿ˜•
But this smoked salmon sandwich is yummy hehe ๐Ÿ˜

Day 2 is the highlight of this trip. I am so excited to meet other influencers from other countries like Bangkok and Philippines. We were met up together and been introduced to the new products that will launch in the year 2017. Besides than that, we also get to learned Koren trendy makeup technique from the famous celebrity makeup artist, Mr.Kim Seung Won and get to play with the new makeup product advised by other celebrities makeup artist as well. :D

#OOTD of Day 2 ๐Ÿ˜ The weather is super duper cold (-7°C) ๐Ÿ˜ฐ
But I'm still wearing pencil skirt on that day lol. I knew! You must think I'm crazy but my bottom part didn't feel cold, all thanks to waist warm pads that I bought at Althea. Now I know the important of warm pack liao! 

Look at the view!!!! This is so gorgeous๐Ÿ’— Korean are hardworking~

My censor name lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ How better if they could use theChency instead of my real name hmm... But still want to express my thankful for such kind tag ๐Ÿ˜‡

So this is one of the range that will launch in 2017 and I believe you guys already knew this range because this range already launched in Jan 2017. This is Yehwadam Revitalizing Skincare Line that using Korean traditional herbs ingredient for 20's to 30's age group. I'd been trying this for two months and I really like it. If you have a chance to try it, highly recommend this range to you.

This is Dr.Belmeur Skincare Range that is specific for acne and sensitive skin. I heard many great reviews from many Bloggers and YouTubers especially their facial cleanser and lip balm. I think I should try it out one day too ✌

The Cushions. New cushion will be coming soon in this year 2017. Stay tuned for my future update because their cushions are really good. Approved by me and SSIN ๐Ÿ˜

THEFACESHOP Moisture Touch Lipstick, has 20 color shades in total but only available 12 color shades in total. This is a highly pigmented moisturizing lipstick. Ladies and gentlemen (ade take? lol), this lipstick is really goooooddd! You have tried it out yourself! One word: Amazing!

Makeup demonstration by Mr.Kim Seoung Won. Thank you so much for sharing 
such many useful Korean tips & tricks and makeup look too. 

After makeup demonstration, it's my time to try out Korean makeup.

Thanks to Mr.Kim Yon-Jae for the makeup. I love it and then realized actually lavender blush suits 
me the best. I need to go to THEFACESHOP and grab one now! ๐Ÿ˜

After makeup sharing and demo, my favorite part is coming! Eat eat eat ๐Ÿ˜ But first, let me 
took a picture first hehe

If you're not eating Korean barbecue, then please don't let people know that you'd visited Korea 
before. Anyway, we're heading to Itaewon area for dinner. :)

Look at the color and marble pattern of this meat! Omo! My saliva is dropping again! I miss this beef 
but it's kinda expensive tho. I remember the price for just two pieces of Kobe beef was 
roughly about USD75. I'm eating gold right ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

After dinner, just walking around Itaewon area and selfie ๐Ÿ˜
From left; Kiena Suhaimi, our mamasan Louisa, yours truly, Sabby Prue and Innanie Ariffin ๐Ÿ˜˜

The night is still young so we decided to head to the unsleep area, 
Dongdaemun for shopping! ๐Ÿ˜‡ But the weather is even freezier ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Dongdaemun is shopping heaven. They are mainly for supply but still selling individually if you're 
keen to buy. To be honest, Korea clothes is one of my favorites because no matter the design, 
cutting, and quality are really good. 

My suit('s) face ๐Ÿ˜ต Super tired and freezing cold so decided walked into a random mini cafe shop 
and have a cup of grapefruit tea. And yea... I don't drink coffee one! ๐Ÿ˜€

Forward to Day 3. Day 3 is still full of activities arranged by THEFACESHOP. We will get to find our personal color either warm or cool tone and which colors will suit us the most. And also get to experienced tea and soap making session. It was so much fun but also the farewell of this trip too. Kinda missing the crazy bunch of THEFACESHOP's staff and other countries influencers as well.

Morning breakfast while enjoying the beautiful view of MyeongDong Area ๐Ÿ˜‹

Can you imagine how cold is the weather by looking at this image?!
 But this photo is beautiful๐Ÿ’–

#OOTD of Day 3. 
When I posted this on my Instagram, many friends told me that I am crazy wearing high socks during the crazy cold weather. So I wanted to clarify that this is a legging, a temp-proof legging that can stand up to -30°C. Just the pattern of my legging looks like I'm wearing sock, okay ๐Ÿ˜

Find my personal color. I am so surprised that I am a cool tone girl. I'm always thought that I am 
warm tone because I always look kind orangey but actually not. 

This is Mrs.Lee Ji-Yeon who is the famous celebrity image consultant. Thank you for the beautiful 
lesson to understand me better. :)

This is the 20 color shades of THEFACESHOP Moisture Touch Lipstick. BUT! It is only available 12 shades available in Malaysia. Anyway, keep staying tuned on my blog because something interesting post will be up soon #youknowwhatImeanhehe ✌๐Ÿ˜Š

After personal color section, it's lunch time. We were heading to a famous traditional Korean 
food and I am so excited for this because I never tried any Korean traditional cuisine before. ๐Ÿ˜

Too many dishes like my lunch had never end lol. You know what?! I already so freaking full but the 
starters still haven't finished serving yet. Can you imagine how the long table was full of foods! 

Here's come the main dishes. Eventho there's just a little on a plate but it's still really too many for my
not too small stomach. Thank you for spoiling me with food, THEFACESHOP. ๐Ÿ˜

After lunch, we were heading to Gangnam area for tea and soap making session. 
Look at this environment. This place is so so beautiful! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

First session will be making tea inspired by THEFACESHOP Yehwadam Revitalizing Skincare range. Did you know that the main ingredients are Korean traditional herbs so the tea will be inspired by the ingredients and also using Yehwadam tea leaf to make it.

This is Mrs.Lim Bo-Eun who is pretty teacher teaching us how to make two drinks. The first was about how to make a tea in a right way. I knew making tea has many things to take care but this is my first time trying myself. It's really fun!

This is the tools when making tea. I love this set! Can I bring home please? ๐Ÿ˜ณ

We have cookies once we did making tea. Aww๐Ÿ’• The best moment ever๐Ÿ˜

The second drink is using Yehwadam tea and then mixing with soda to create a beautiful cold drink. 
Look at the color gradation of this drink, it is so pretty ๐Ÿ’•

The second activity is my favorite one! Soap making session. This activity is inspired by Dr.Belmeur Skincare Range which interesting this soap actually paraben & sulfate free, it is safe to use for face, body even for hair. Super safe to use even for sensitive skin just like the concept of THEFACESHOP Dr.Belmeur Skincare Range. 

Picking out the color for the soap later. Will cutting this strip soap into little cube ๐Ÿ˜Š

This are the colors that Sabby and me chose for our soap making later ๐Ÿ˜

Firstly, pouring a layer of transparent soap as the base then putting the little cube soaps at the center depends on our creativity. Well... Sabby and I trying to hard to make it as cute as possible but we end up simply throwing because we messed up at the end lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

After that, pouring the remain transparent soap and let it cool down. Since it's winter season so we just lay it at the balcony area to speed up the progress. 
PS:// I have no final picture for my baby soap but you can watch it on my ๐Ÿ’ปYoutube because I have recorded it. ๐Ÿ˜

Dinner time! Look at the super fresh sashimi ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Lastly, *๐Ÿ“ท✨kachak✨๐Ÿ‘ฏ* with the babes as our memory ๐Ÿ˜„

Here's come the end of my 4 days 3 nights journey with THEFACESHOP. Thank you so much for the amazing experience and friendly services ever! Also, thank you for spoiling me with your generosity. I am so blessed to be apart of it. Thank you THEFACESHOP ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’—

Thank you so much to THEFACESHOP for such generous products. I can't wait to try it out
and share my review x thoughts after using these. Keep stay tuned on my future post because
I will definitely share my review in my blog. ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡
