Amazon Haul

Finally..after ordering it last Nov 30, my Amazon package has arrived in Tokyo! Whewe. 3 week wait...

Here is the package and content. 

1. Elaine Gregg Restorative Marine Moisturizer
Special ingredient: red marine algae
I have used a similar product in Sg. It did good to my skin but unfortunately, I ran out of it. Upon researching, the cream is available online but in different name and branding. I guess its repackaged..

2. Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Again, my Sg dermatologist recommended Hyaluronic Acid for me but I ran out of it and saw this online.

3. Purity One Step Facial Cleanser
I need a cleanser and make up remover in one. Too bad Amazon doesnt sell the product that I used from Eucerin so I choose this one instead.

4. Aveeno Shampoo and Conditioner
Hands up to Aveeno as their products are "hiyang" to me.

5. Estee Lauder Double Wear Mineral Rich Loose Powder - Intensity 2.0
Have tried this first in Sg  and love it so much it feels like second skin but I ran out of it and Japan doesnt carry this.

6. SkinCeuticals Phyto +
For hyperpigmentation. I will use this before putting Hyaluronic Acid and Restorative Marine Moisturizer

Basically these products are mostly skin regimen at night. 😆💙💚💛💜

Spouse Visa Denied

Yep. It hurts.

Sorry for the lack of post but I received a bad news this Wednesday and the immigration said they cannot grant me my spouse visa unless for special reasons like sickness or pregnancy (cant get preggers now, its out of our financial planning). Wth? So you mean loving my husband is not legitimate for us to be together?! How could they do this to us. 😭😭😭

I was given 30 days and when I comeback home in Pinas, hubby can only apply for the Certificate of Eligibility. And that has chances of denial again! Ugh. Lord, help us!

I cant bear to be LDR with my hubby again. 😭😭😭

Today, I spent the whole day calling different lawyers in the payphone as I dont have phone. In Japan, you need to be a resident to have one. My gawd. I defied the cold winter weather. Dried up my throat for explaining. Spent almost 5k Yen for the cards and still it left me confused. One lawyer said, we can reapply again and dont have to go back to PH (Just pay 100k+ yen and counting, yeah ryt.) But guess what...three lawyers said need to go back thats the rule. Wahhhhhh.

Omg. Hope we can surpass this.

Im gonna miss being a housewife...

Laundry in winter

I woke up today as usual around 6:15am. Hubby left for work and I immediately did the laundry. I have this habit of getting things done early before I start procrastinating. The thing is we dont own a laundry dryer (and we will never get one because its exp!) thus we have to go to the coin laundry shop to dry our clothes. This shop is about 13mins walk from home which is really tiring. Last time, I asked the husband to do it but he ended up getting cranky after lol. Know why? 13 mins walk going to the shop + carrying about 5kg or so of laundry + waiting 30 mins for it to dry + 13mins walk again to home. Lol..and the hubby is quite allergic to any household work..

Anyway, Im writing this as I am waiting for the clothes to dry.

Oh before that, I already did the washing at home c/o our washing machine to save cost and time. So while waiting at home for the washing, I quickly finished the 3rd to the last episode of the US drama, The Event. This is me and my hubby's current addiction. We are so addicted that as soon as he comes home from work, he asks me to play the DVD already lol. Its so sweet of him to watch it together with me. I heard of its bad ratings in the US but I dont know - I find it intellectually challenging.

And also, I started the movie: Lost in Translation. Yeah, this is quite old lol but tbh I havent watched this one yet. I have heard of this before but I thought it was all about aliens hahaha. Omg I was shocked when I saw it the cover in the DVD rental shop. Wait a minute? That's Japan! Hahah imagine my surprised face.

I am not sure where I was when that movie came out and why in the hell I didnt know or watched it lol

I am halfway already to the movie and I couldnt stop laughing with Bob Harris' character. And somehow relate to feeling Scarlett lol 😆
