Adventures in Guangzhou

I’m tucked in bed at the Hilton, Tianhe with a cup of chamomile tea, Maxwell (one of my favourite singers) playing at the background, a snail mask on my face and writing this blog post right at this moment. Ahh…life is good.

Oh darn, I just remembered that I forgot to follow on with facial wash after my facial scrub in the shower!! I wonder if that’s ok? This skincare regime business can get so complicated sometimes. If you’re curious, I’m currently using Skin Inc’s Pure Prodew Cleanser, La Mer’s Refining Facial Scrub – I usually leave this on for about 5-10 minutes and then remove it in circular motions. It really gets rid of grime, and makes it easy to pop stubborn blackheads after. I major love this scrub. 

I’m here in Guangzhou for a little pet project of mine that I’m super excited about but will keep it a ‘lil secret until I’m ready to share with everyone. This is not my first time in Guangzhou and there’s really not much to do or sightsee so I’m spending most of my time here in my room working on my project. It feels like I’m having a mini staycation with lots of me time.

I met with Stephanie today and she took me for hi-tea at the Four Seasons Hotel on the 70th floor. The view up there is amazing. Check out my first photo! We spent a good couple of hours taking in the view and chatting over bite-size savouries and sweets. We went to Taikoo Hui Mall after (the mall’s name is funny isn’t it? It makes a lot more sense in Mandarin) where most of the big brands are at. I noticed that a lot of coveted designer products were available at this mall. The Chanel Boy bag was available in many styles and colours and I spotted the furry monster and the Karl Lagerfeld keychain at Fendi. This mall also houses Bread Talk, Crystal Jade and Food Junction…very Singaporean. I first thought that it was a Singapore collaboration – apparently not. Stephanie took me to Mei Xin Restaurant opposite the mall after some shopping ( I may have remembered the name wrongly) where we were joined by her husband. I had the best roast goose there! I’m salivating just thinking about it.

Oops! It’s 2am, so I’d better stop thinking about food and head to bed. Off to wash off this snail mask off my face. Goodnight!
