which is another winner (fong) & a 'nanny' (Jojo) from Laneige Malaysia HQ.
My flight was 1AM at KLIA2 , had a good sleep in the plane .
my fingers turn into red , itchy & dry just after I step out from airport.
the weather was -5 Celsius and -7 at night . The wind was so strong too x_x

after make up & hairdo . WE ARE SO READY TO SHOP & START OUT JOURNEY !
why the natural lighting is so so so so pretty there !!!!????
which in Malaysia , this sunlight + hot weather = sweaty hair + smudge make up .
we have no idea what to eat & dint understand any korea words nor language.
I only know those super basic one like oppa, saranghea , omma , daebak, hana, dul ...etc .
all learnt from Runningman hahahaha.
our first meal treated by Laneige Malaysia
ahjumma is very friendly and tried to explain to us how to order & what they have.
so we ordered ginseng chicken stuffed with rice & hot ginseng soup.
Our foods is here! the kimchi is SO FRESH ! SO CRUNCHY !
Now I know what's the difference with Malaysia & korea Kimchi ... haha
Korea Kimchi is super fresh mai god
each meal cost around RM50 for each person.
Kinda expensive thou . but definitely worth a try !

her name is flora ~ and yes, this is our group from South East Asia .
the sky is so bright, clear & fresh
my hair curl stays like forever. maybe because because the weather there is dry ?
