Just came home from Jia‘s house about an hour ago and had baked a Vanilla Chiffon Cake to share with colleagues tomorrow. They cooked up a fancy feast at workplace yesterday afternoon over lunch for my birthday. So, I decided to bake them a cake since they had been telling me that I never share my bakes with them. LOL!
Mom is flying over to Shanghai again at the end of this month and I am planning to bake Sister Cheesecake Brownie by DessertzHouse. I had baked Chocolate Chiffon Cake by DessertzHouse as well this afternoon and brought it over to Jia’s house after dinner.
Before I show you my skincare buys from Shanghai, let me show you the Chocolate Chiffon Cake which I baked this afternoon. I will blog about the recipe some other day. You can always refer to the original link in the mean time if you wish to.

Moving on to my skincare buys …
I had overspent on skincare purchases on my previous holiday trip to Shanghai. I had even purchased a few items from Sasa before I am leaving for Shanghai as it takes time for delivery to Sister accommodation in Nanjing.
Delivery service was quick and prompt. I think it took less than five days to reach Sister. I bought three items from Sasa. Sasa was having this promotion whereby delivery within Mainland China is free via expedited shipping for purchases over RMB119 in one single receipt. I jumped at the chance, of course. RMB119 is less than B$25 when converted to Brunei’s currency.
Biore Facial Wash Hydration | RMB25 (Mannings)
Shiseido AquaLabel White Clear Foam | RMB79.10 (Sasa)
Shiseido Senka Perfect Whip | RMB35 (Sasa)
I did not get these Kose Sekkisei Lotion from Shanghai but I requested KinG to bring back two bottles for me from Singapore Changi International Airport while he was on the way back to Brunei from his business trip yesterday.
I was in luck yesterday as the original price for a bottle of Kose Sekkisei Lotion 360ml is about S$76 at the airport. But there was a promotion going on, hence he got me two bottles of the same size for S$97.30 only after a further reduction of 30% from S$139.
