MPH Bookstore Haul

12:00 PM

Hi!

I love going into bookstores, MPH being my top choice, second Borders and third is Popular. Kinokuniya would have been top with their variety especially the manga collections but sadly, I don't prefer making frequent trips to KLCC. But MPH doesn't disappoint me!

Oh one more choice is BookXcess for their ridiculously affordable prices. If I find what I would like to read. Anyway, can't wait for their Big Bad Wolf Book Sale next week, starting 4th Dec. Yours truly will be going one day earlier, courtesy to a Preview Pass. *evil laugh

Okay, let's start my Bookstore Haul.

Since I shop at bookstores at least more than twice compared to shopping for other stuff i.e. grocery, skincare, make up and etc., I decided why not a bookstore haul. Why not right? Lol.

Wait til I get my own library in my own sweet home then you'll see the amount of books I own right now.

Voila!

My MPH Bookstore Haul

1. MPH 2016 'Colour My World' Calendar



This is an exclusive calendar, whereby 100% of the proceeds will be donated to UNICEF Malaysia to reduce the number of out-of-school children in Malaysia.

For more info, click here.

Opened it and delighted with the designs, all ready for me to be artistic! Lol

Best part?

Flip the month and a bigger canvas for colouring. Absolutely love this calendar idea from MPH!

This calendar is currently in all MPH outlets (except MPH Bakti Siti Hasmah) and MPH Online with a price of RM15, from now onwards til 31st December 2015.

2. Once Upon a Miao


Confession first: I saw it while browsing in MPH before but I didn't know what to expect from it so I didn't purchase. Imagine my surprise when more and more news about it kept appearing, like purposely tempt me to GET IT. Lol. Okay, the marketing team won. I went to MPH, searching for it, found it and fell in love with it. Damn adorable drawings okay, with funny plots too.

Okay okay, I got 'bribed' with that bookmark. And the cat. Lol.

Retails at RM34.90 in all major bookstores.

Visit the creator on Miao & WafuPafu Comic too!

Book review post soon. :)

3. Stationery

Colour ball pens and colour gel pens!

 Mostly for the calendar. Lol.

10 colour ball pens - RM12.00 (Discount 20%)
6 colour gel pens - RM10.80 (Discount 20%)

4. A5 Desk Diary


Going to start the New Year soon. Okay, not that soon but I always prepare early.
RM22.30 (MRC Discount 10%)

Planning to start my colourful diary quest, I love how others do it on Instagram, prettier and way more interesting than just words.

Total purchases: RM88.20

Thanks for reading!

Dear Diary #6

9:30 PM

Dear Diary,

This is a scheduled post to make a gap between my review posts because quite a few are coming up, hopefully before this month ends. Lol.

By the time this post is up, I should be back from watching Victor Frankenstein with le boyfriend at One Utama, courtesy of Nuffnang. Yup, a win from Dayre again. Love my creative answers to their question, at least my creative writing side hasn't died.

Oh one more movie, won from foodpanda on their Instagram, for Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. Can't wait for that one.

Anyway, November is fast coming to a close and December beckons. I'm especially looking forward to 15th December but it's a weekday so most likely a weekend date. It will be our 2 years meeting each other, kinda me insisting it as such since we didn't actually acknowledge when did we decided to go steady.

And I digress.

I should be posting up an interesting post about MPH and the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale happening soon but I'll get that next week. Especially MPH because I bought their calendar, (it's gorgeous, following the colouring trend), my 2016 journal/diary/planner/whatever, some colour pens and a book/comic(?) which is being promoted quite a lot by local Instagrammers and I hope to promote it more. #supportlocalbrands Lol

Hmmm, next would be my disastrous shopping therapy at Sephora Midvalley, which I swear was not in my initial shopping list, well, except for the Sephora calendar, which is so beautiful, I just had to get it (with RM250 purchases). Yikes!

I think I did pretty good actually. MPH and Sephora ONLY. Thanks to the crowd plus mostly full restaurants, I was there for approximately 3 hours. Lol

Or because my purchases were heavy and bulky so I wished to go back fast. Maybe that...

Til next time, Dear Diary!

Exploding Kittens: A Review

11:30 AM

Hi!

*Disclaimer: No REAL kittens were, are or in future, involved in the process of this review.

This project started on Kickstarter, an online platform which claims:

Our mission is to help bring creative projects to live.
Creators, be them artists, filmmakers, designers or even authors, post their projects on Kickstarter to get support and resources from just anywhere in the world.

Since our launch, on April 28, 2009, 9.9 million people have backed a project, $2.1 billion has been pledged, and 96,313 projects have been successfully funded.
And this Exploding Kittens is one of those projects, successfully funded, with amazing support.

What's even more amazing?

It's the most-backed project on Kickstarter! -Article link here

Created by Elan Lee + The Oatmeal + Shane Small, it's a card game, with glorious graphics of kittens and unusual game rules.

Here's my video, showing the First Edition deck and NSFW deck:

Apologies for low quality :'(

It is said that to learn how to play the game, easiest to watch their tutorial on their website, so here's the link!

P.S: Plus I would like to stop myself from story-telling how-to-play, believe me, it will be almost like a rant lecture. *angelic smile



Photo Gallery







My favourite card from the lot is, hands down, the Nope card. Lol. It's ingenious, I can stop all actions, except Defuse and Exploding Kitten. And it annoys other players. Lolol.

Coupled with the funny graphics, especially from the NSFW deck, I hope it spreads into Malaysia.

Oh decks are not mine, borrowed and played with le boyfriend. :)

Thanks for reading!
