So, I went on a trip to Thailand representing the university, specifically my school (faculty) to Ubon Ratchathani University. I was among 4 others chosen (it was an all paid trip; SCORE!). We were to attend their annual Agriculture Fair and engage in information exchange, regarding both academia structure and cultural practices. We were even asked to prepare a brief cultural performance.
Just a little background information, Ubon Ratchathani is a northeastern province in Thailand. It is also the eastern most province of Thailand, bordering Laos and Cambodia.
We were taken sightseeing and also visited a shopping mall. I only bought three products in the course of the four days there so this is smaller than a mini haul. It is a teeny tiny haul.
One from Boots, one from Watsons, and one from Don Muang Airport (domestic flight area not the duty free shopping area).
I haven’t seen this cosmetic brand here in Malaysia and decided to grab this lip balm. The salesgirl (unlike condescending sales people here in Malaysia) was so nice to me. And because they spoke so little English, I had to try and try to ask them for a local makeup brand I can try out; they had none. Only skincare (which was rather pricey to me and I was too busy spending money on delicious food).
The lip balm. It is apparently a Japanese brand. Price; 70 baht, approximately MYR 8.15
Ok, this white milk cream was given to me by the salesgirl. How nice!
She even gave me a booklet about the brand and it’s products but alas, they were all in Thai.
I jumped for joy when I saw Boots at the shopping mall we went to. They had brands I have only ever heard of YouTubers and beauty gurus talk about, like No.7 and Seventeen. However, I wasn’t pressed to purchase anything. Price tags seemed to be quite heavy. So I bought this Boots brand lipbalm instead! Price; 64.50 baht, approximately MYR 7.50.
Yeay, they had the entire range of the Megalast lipsticks!!!!!!!!! Price; 139 baht, approximately MYR 16.15. Here in Malaysia, from Sasa, it is MYR 22!!!!!!!!!
I have wanted Mocha-licious for SO LONG!!! YEAY!!!
I have some shots of my trip there.
I have written about this product before because I won it from Collection Malaysia (post here). The product isn’t available here but I saw this at the Collection booth at Watsons.
They have Burt’s Bees at WATSONS!!!!!!
One of the places we visited. Wat Phra That Nong Bua; a Buddhist temple. It was so beautiful and amazing! The highlight of this place is Sri Maha Pho Chedi of gleaming gold and white chedi which loosely resembles the Mahabodhi stupa in Bodhgaya, India.
On my way back… 😦
