RANDOM POST: remembering what got me into makeup and kpop

there are times i wish i was park shin hye :-( in the ads below, she gets to spend time with 3 of the hottest stars in the Korean music/acting industries, Jang Geun Seuk, Lee Min Ho and of course Kim Hyun Joong.

wow it seems so long ago since i've gotten into this makeup craze thanks to an invite from my sister in law to one of those Bobbi Brown mini seminars / launch of their collection at the time, back in '08.  since it was bobbi brown and the lauder that it is i was, i started looking for cheaper alternatives and something that will go well with our humid environment. i then stumbled onto mineral makeup, then quickly got over that,  because i had discovered bb creams, Asian makeup and Korean Dramas in what seem like just a span of 3-6 months!  thanks to youtube and the night shift, i quickly got acquianted with the boys over flowers, their music, and their seemingly flawless skin.

it's still these two guys after all this time that get my attention.  and thanks to lee min ho and kim hyun joong i've settled on at least 3 Korean brands. of course they are Etude House, Tony Moly and The Face Shop

hahaha even for water they get the current top stars to endorse

and our somewhat our own, Sandara Park for Etude.

a manly sexy ad for Tony Moly

and leader's newer ad for TFS ahh at least this new one is inline with what i'm used to with Tony Moly

apart from the Bobbi Brown event, the Etude House grand launch is what i would call my very first makeup event.  it was at resorts world, republiq, the president of Etude House Korea was there and Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye spared time from their busy schedules and made video greetings even whilst their contracts with Etude were on the last few months already.

why the trip down memory lane?  la lang i went on youtube to uplift my feelings just a tad.  i went to this thing yesterday and i ended up feeling left out and totally didn't belong.  sure they were friendly since, c'mon, they were trying to unload their stuff at their event.  but i did get stares fr head to toe first before i was greeted.  phhhhfft felt i was back in assumption again [san lo].  and the registration girls were hmmm didn't really take care of this new person trying to get it. they didn't know that the entrance fee is half off when you bring some kind of school supply or used school book. fine whatever.
but oh, segue back to kpop lol, one coniotic girl did notice my vip lanyard, bwahahaha and motioned to her sister, 'ey it's big bang!' then sheepishly said 'la lang' like hmmm come out of the kpop closet already, not everything is bruno mars in music, y' know.
theBenj notice immediately i was not the usual chipper Marge and i merely told him how i felt.  i said, i feel old, outdated, and yeah, i feel old.  he said, i don't care i still love you.  pinagalitan ba ko :P  and he treated me to arya since he was feeling like a sweet lassi and he knew i loved Arya.
there, hehehe nuff said, since this is what makes me happy imma gonna stick this this ;-) i'm even trying, still to learn hangul bwahahaha, seonsengnim, i promise to get back to you for my module two final exam LOL.
there, i feel better LMAO thanks to theBenj, youtube and my addiction :P
but but but then there are days i wish was UEE instead LOL pahabol?

While reading this post, It made me go back to my own memory lane of getting stared down from grade school to high school, was bullied a lot before. I believe that you're a very strong woman and you have the looks, the brains and the personality to match it. It doesn't matter what other people see in you, what matters is that you know yourself better than anybody else and that you have a loving husband who is there to love and support you and friends like ( me ) to always be there for you no matter what. I'm very lucky that I became friends with you because its rare to find a friend that is sincere and the fact that I had a long conversation with you the moment we met really proves how much of a good person you are. :) stay pretty and happy! :)

lol!
a true hardcore kpop fan
i'm more of a jpop fan though my students are koreans. & for that i sometimes have to listen to some korean songs na din.hehe

i'm sorry that you felt that way. i have experienced something like that na din. it's so annoying diba? it's a good thing that hubby is very supportive & loving,ne? that's so sweet of him!
^_^

anyway, tony moly is available here in the philippines pala no?
kanina ko lang nalaman. i went to sm north edsa & they already have it on the dept store. they said that the 1st one was in sm nova.

i was thinking of getting the lipsticks because of the packaging pero i'm not sure though...anyway, have you tried the egg pore primer ng tony moly?
i was thinking of getting it since the only thing that i can use as a primer is dr feelgood by benefit pero when i tried to test the egg pore primer by tony moly they almost have the same texture.. though not quite like dr feelgood.

i'm a bit concerned lang kasi kung may dimethicone ang tony moly for dr feelgood doesn't have it & silicone breaks me out. the price is actually quite affordable compare to other primers out there. i just thought of checking in with you muna for i know how much you love korean brands. pro ka na in my vocab! hehe

the primer i tried is from the face shop and true enough, it broke me out din...so the less dimethicones the better, kaya i use bb creams na lang for primer, para may helpful ingredients din to prevent zits. yep, june 5 ang opening naman ng tony moly at megamall. yahooooo. i do wanna try that egg pore primer LOL it seems interesting. ey it's nice they're keeping the prices low ;-)

awww the only jpop group i know is Arashi. lol since matsujun was the lead in hana yori dango LOL bof parin right? hehehe and arashi's music is, well the last few albums, are so happy to me. i only know of johnny's eh so arashi, smap, kat tun? at kinki kids, thanks to my barkada who so loves loves as in loves arashi.

yeah kpop, they're pretty and tall eh, and i don't mind na panay retokado mukha nila.

i'm sorry you had a similar experience as i did. i guess it just can't be helped but be judged. i felt sad lang that because i was only wearing jeans a t-shirt and my c0nvergy$ jacket? i don't belong na in their coniotic crowd? that's fine, i'll wear each of my c0nv3rgys jackets at events like these all the more. thru my ups and downs, at the end of the day, for more than 5yrs now, it's c0nv3rgy$ that has funded me & most recently feeds my addiction to kpop and make up. and duh wouldn't you know it continues to feed my family. LOL sorry breadwinner medyo ko.

thanks for dropping by again ;-) missed ya ^_^
