The Return of Smoot

So the Smoots are back from a week in delightful post-summer-sale Hong Kong where the products of LUSH and I had a tearful reunion. I am now the proud owner of:

1. 1 tub of Angels on Bare Skin;
2. 1 tub of Dream Cream;
3. a bar of Sea Soap and a bar of Karma Soap; and
4. 1 tub of The Strokes conditioning cream for hair (bloody Hsuen Wen Hua was as usual out of stock with a long waiting list).

Again, I lament ... why did Lush have to close down in Singapore?????

Also managed to score a Chloe silk blouse from a parallel importer for a mere S$70 (the label was not sufficiently mutilated beyond recognition) as well as a number of remarkably beautiful silk and cotton tops and a pure wool wrap for the same price, clearly top range designer stuff but the labels were completely removed, dammit. My only regret was not getting the names of the designers from the salesgirl. How else am I going to know now. I love you, Pedder Building!

As usual, The Son was cooed over by salesgirls and waitresses everywhere we went because of his big big eyes and funny haircut (hey, it's not my fault - kitchen shears can only do so much). He's perfected the art of blowing kisses so his evil plans for world domination are almost complete.

In other news, 5 bottles of alcohol have materialised in The Boss' office with significant depletion in the bottle of Jack Daniels. I thought he must really have missed me but no, actually our business development manager/ senior secretary just announced that she's expecting and will be taking 12 weeks' leave starting April. I think I also need a stiff drink.

Lush is so good... but I always feel like licking their soap.

Lucky you... you could eat any number of their soaps and still get replacements from the neighbourhood store!!!

Pedder Building requires the whole afternoon. I love the way it looks like the ugliest building in Hong Kong island with unpainted cement walls, naked pipes overhead and barely-finished floors. You just know the good stuff must be there if people keep going.

i'm surprised you only bought 1 tub of each! :p if i were you...

(i have a habit of stocking up... bigtime. i'm very reliant on some aussie products not available in sg so stocking-up missions get quite insane.)

I thought about it, but the problem with Lush products is they have a very short shelf life.

There's nothing more tragic than 6 pots of expired Hsuen Wen Hua to throw away.
