Sensuous Samsara

A perfume can either enhance your natural scent with its own unique fragrance OR go the complete opposite and turn you into Stinkor! Unfortunately for a college friend of mine (let's call her J), the latter was what happened to her! ;)

From what I observed back in college, J had naturally oily skin and complexion. Add to this, the B.O. problem she had, whatever perfume she wore just didn't come off right! There was one particular perfume, which she wore almost daily - Samsara it was called. I thought it had a very p
retty name, but the way it smelled on her was simply nauseating! At the risk of sounding cruel or bitchy, I tell you no lies when I say that every time she walked past me, it took all my willpower to stop breathing, while keeping a straight face! :(

It was only years after college, when we had separated ways and I hardly see J anymore, that one fine day...while shopping in a mall, I chanced upon Samsara again. Until today I'm not sure what made me stop at the Guerlain counter to ask the saleslady for a spray on my wrist. I was expecting Samsara to smell as terrible on me as it did on J, but to my utter amazement, it was the exact opposite! Samsara smelled absolutely divine on me (if I do say so myself!) and it was love at first scent for Mariuca!

Introduced by Jean-Paul Guerlain back in 1989, Samsara was created at the request of his beloved muse, Decia de Powell*, whose two favourite scents were sandalwood and jasmine. Samsara is also a Sanskrit mantra, which means "the eternal search for unattainable perfection". Classified as a refined, oriental, woody fragrance, Samsara is an ultra-feminine and sensual scent that combines bergamot, rose, narcissus, amber, violet and ylang ylang with a touch of vanilla and tonka bean. Beautifully captured in an equally hot red bottle, Samsara has the beauty and the power to evoke a sense of sensuality and serenity from deep within, bringing you to a heightened sense of tantalizing bliss, bordering on your very own state of Nirvana!

Recommended for evening wear, Samsara is suitable for all star signs with the exception of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius*.

First? First? Could I really be first?

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 2:29 AM

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 2:50 AM

Eh Jean is not asleep mah...baru je dapat email from her LOL! I was watching Boldie just now, are u up to date? ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 2:53 AM

Alamak.. she not asleep.. shhh dun tell her I outbid her...hehehe...

Yes babeh.. am up to speed..hehee.. are you?? can we biatch??

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 2:58 AM

LOL shhhhhhh ...

Abaden!! Okay, first of all I just wanna say that all the Logan sisters are bitches! Right now, yg paling bitchy are D and K!

What is up with D??? Kalau tak suka Owen, what's with allowing him to touch-touch her, can explain to me or not? And then kiss lagi?!! Pls don give us the lame excuse that she's vulnerable la kan? Make me angry la, yest and today!!

Next, K is da biggest bitch of all, oooohhhh geram betul la! Asyik pegang-pegang N. Noticed that she is the one yg selalu hug him first, hold on to him, touch the face, what the hell is that? And yet can say, I don wanna hurt B, she saved my life... BULL!!! :(

I can't wait for tomo to find out what B has to say abt the poison!!! ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 3:04 AM

OMG! You are so SPOT ON on K! I hate her so much.. what was it she said.. I can't feel guilty about the baby?? Hello..laki org ke apa tu?? And si N tu apa ke mender?? That night was ours konon... hmm.. kalau dah gatal tu gatal jer lah.. they are so many ways to express love between friends but S8X is not the way!!! even if she was gonna die!!!

EEEE gerams!!!

Don't talk to me about D! WTF!! Laki dah nak mati pun masih boleh mengatal with another man.. and what is it with her always touching her face lah??? Si Own tu pun satu.. "oohh anyone would be lucky to have you Donna..." menyampah.. macam lawa sgt and macam outstanding sgt.. kiss my a*s lahh!! lolzz.. marah to the max ni!! buta ke apa?!?!

And yes.. can't wait for 2mrw epi.. you think he really poisoned Eric?? and eh what's with Jackie.. macam semacam jer cakap tu kan.. macam ada malice jer...

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 3:12 AM

OMG LJ!!! I am so happy to bitch abt this, knowing that u too angry to da max with these 2! And I don blame the guys, cause the girls yg lebih-lebih, esp si K! Tak sedar diri, and sikit-sikit wan to use the baby as an excuse! PODAH!!

And D..she is being such a bimbo la, "But Owen saved Eric's life"...mah ass!!! Si Owen tu pun bukannye cute, and remember when she told him that he has to respect her status as a married woman if he wants to be her "friend"?? Cakap pun tak sincere, mcm reluctant gitu! Oh...and don forget when she said she needed a break from work...WHAT WORK?????? Minum-minum, flirt-flirt adalah! Pity Ridge and the company!

Oh and B oso so stupid, pushing N to ask K to be the godmother!!! "If anyone can convince her, its you N"...ah bagus lah, push ur husband to another person, and then cry! Padan muka!!! :(:(:(

Elara August 21, 2008 at 3:17 AM

Marzie! Hola! My connection tak betul la today, very slow. That's why lambat komen here. Anyway, C suka sangat u puji2 him. Today he sms me, "u ni cute la..hehe.." Saja want me to puji him some more. Takut la pulak want to put his pic for the contest, nevermind nanti I think of more contest ideas ya! :)

Thanks for this lovely Samsara review. Looks like it suits me also cuz I'm a Capri! I've always thought u collect big bottles, never thought of mini bottles tau. Hehehe..must get bigger bottles of Samsara, mesti dah sikit tu sbb dok woosh woosh here and at Mariuca. :)

Happy Thursday! :):)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 3:22 AM

Betul betul.. Respect mender if asyik nak ajak D bercium jer... prepare food lah.. pegang shoulder lah.. pegang pinggang lahh.. OMG! and D let's him.. that's even terok kan.. after all she's the married one!! He is so manipulating her and she's letting him! Bimbo!! I guess when she said those things is like she's so faithful but kesian kat Owen lah gitu... Yucks!!!

And what work is right, Emak and Anak sama jer.... they're always at the sky lounge, suntanning, playing basketball and drinking away.. and D baru kerja skit dah headache.. WTF kan?

B is blind as a bat i tell you.. soo stoooopiiidddd... why would you want to push your hubby to another woman is beyond me.. no matter who she is!! in boldie's case, even if she is your mother! remember Deacon and Brooke.. and Hope kluar.. apadah B ni!! Tak serik2 Padan muka is right!! :(

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 3:23 AM

Hola Debbie!!! Wah finally u are here YAY!

Alamak ye ke? So cute la C suka dipuji, tak shy shy gitu, I like the very he he!! Today I took another look at C while at FB, he still looks young to me and hey that contest sounds superb la! Like Trin had a contest asking us to guess her age several months back, cool gila!

Oh koleksi are all minis, the big bottles are for me to woosh woosh away! I have to have my day scents, night scents, going to sleep scents...all okasi mesti ada! Glad u liked the review and go get yourself a bottle, C for sure suka! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 3:33 AM

HA HA HA!!! LJ, I like la u said respect mender...I can imagine the way u said it, mesti in a very irritated way he he!!

Yeah!! I noticed the pegang pinggang today astaga!!! And did u see D pushing him away? No kan? Sebab si gatal tu suka la!! Tapi konon tak suka, tak nak ngaku! Smlm, masa duduk kat tangga, saja je stretching out her legs in front of Owen, sexy konon!! :(

LOL!!! Betul tu LJ!!! Mcm mana tak bankrap kalau mcm ni? Naik atas main-main, dating, cium-cium, work out, pi beach cabana ha ha ha!!! And D tu kan used to be a waitress..mcm mana Ridge tak marah when she wants to take over the biz?!! She is the silliest bimbo Logan, I gotta say!

LJ, B tu kan teringin sangat nakjadi martyr!! That is her mission in life, to "sacrifice" for the sake of others...BIG BULL!! And N always looks uncomfortable when K pegang-pegang dia, tak malu ke si K? I feel so embarrassed for her u know??

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 3:55 AM

Ahh.. feel so relieve now that all that is off my chest..lolzz!!

Yeah I remember D dok kat tangga tu.. i was thinking WTF too.. macam nak seduce Owen jer.. and remember the dance konon2 nak reminisce lah.. eeeeee....hahah.. waitress nak run company... big joke.. no experience kan... berani konon.. berani bodoh..

I got news for you bimbo that just because Owen got faith in you won't be enuff to run a company.. betul tak GP?? heheh

K tu mmg gatal.. tak sedar diri... konon macam N tu her only love lah after so long dun have bf.. hallo.. sedar diri lah skit..and that baby excuse is getting old lahh kan??

B oh B!! Wake up and smell the roses.. someone is taking your hubby away!!

Phew.. lega nya hati i dapat bitch abt

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 4:07 AM

Me too me too!! It's like selagi tak meluahkan perasaan, selagi tu la tak puas hati kan? I'm so happy to have a Boldie fren to discuss with lol! ;)

Oh yeah! Almost forgot abt that freaking dance, what was that all about? Kalau nak reminisce pun, reminisce la dgn org lain. Why must it be with a guy that she KNOWS has the hots for her (it seems la, cause Owen has his own agenda!)???

You know what? I think K never had a BF, she was a freakin V!! Tak sedar diri betul la ML kat beach, some more it was the same Catalina island N brought Brooke to...takde class langsung! And that stupid prom...get over it oredi! N pitied u only, not that he's IN LOVE with her, dia sayang je cause of the baby. You know la how N loves kids! ;)

Wah wah...betul-betul marah nampaknye kita berdua ha ha!!!

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 4:16 AM

Yeah girlfrind.. so glad we found each other.. .. best tul dapat meluahkan perasaan kan.. so happy i found out that you love Boldie too..hehe

Own def have an agenda though right now only Marcus seems to notice.. Like he said.. a rich widow with lots of money..and owen is just being the supportive "friend" lah.. so that if anything does happen to Eric.. he'll be the first person D will hook up too.. and if Eric wakes up.. both of them wud be eternally grateful for his "friendship".. either way.. he wins.. I still can't believe how D forgives him for conspiring with F.. but can't seems to forgive F at all.. mmg blind lah she.. or perhaps mmg dia dah hot for him.. that's why lah accept jer.. the last time she sent him packing pun sebab Marcus suruh per..kalau tidak he would have stayed on kan?

Sure or not. K is Miss V..lolz.. patutler.. preggy.. lama simpan telur too...lolzz!! Yeah N is obssessed with kids.. even yg bukan dia punya..ini lagi kalau his kan?? He's in PITY not LOVE!! Confused betul these pple.. lol..

Yelah..mmg marah kita berdua kan?? lolzz

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 4:29 AM

Yeah, cause K is so stiff, tapi buat-buat experience and demure gitu..tak menjadi and tak lawa!

Oh I dah start watch Boldie from Day 1 you know? Masa kat US, it was on and off, cause busy studying and partying lol! Then happily continued after I got back until now! Why can't they have Boldie every day, even on weekends kan? Ha ha ha!! Eh, once my friend went to US and saw Eric!! I mean the real Eric, walking around, but she wasn't sure what his real name was, so she didn't stop to ask for autograph lol!!

You are correct LJ...moral of the story is that D mmg suka O cause he's young and he makes her feel good abt herself. Kalau tak, dah lama dah dia halau O!

Also, K is in love with somebody's husband, but trying to be coy abt the whole thing like she doesn care, when in reality, N is her life! And that sickens me cause I hate K! ;)

I wonder if we'll be angry again nanti, cause the past 2 episodes no story on K. Maybe tomo? ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 4:59 AM

heheh cute lah your girlfriend.. kalau i.. approach jer.. and call him eric forrester.. mesti dia suka..lolzz.. I love his cleft..hehe

K mmg tak lawa.. i concur 200% lolz!

K and B!! Totally B&B.. bodoh and bitches...lolzz

Kim August 21, 2008 at 6:46 AM

I haven't tried this perfume Mariuca..
I will test it out next time I'm shopping :)
it sounds very nice....
what a shame your poor friend didn't realise the effects of it on her...
I know there are a lot of mens' perfumes that are really sickly...and there is nothing worse...
I love your pic of your perfume collection..
my favourites are chanel # door ...and opium...hehe...
but I'm always on the look out for new ones ;)

Sushi August 21, 2008 at 1:36 PM

Ooops Marzie, Mama star sign will make her a stinkor if she ever tries Samsara :(
Now, she's curious and wanna challenge the guy who said it's not good for her and she'll try it anyway! I'm a Virgo so, I know if I try I'll smell delish, but, it's a girl's scent so, I might also become a stinkor :(
I noticed your gallery has a lot of those Escada Island Kiss, Paradise something, rock in rio and so on, they all smell fruity and yummy. Mama looooves those. Some have been discontinued and can only be found online now in the US. Pity! And the prices are higher too. I love your gallery and also all the Gaultier bottles! Woofies X

eastcoastlife August 21, 2008 at 3:08 PM

Wah! Discuss drama here also? I thought this is abt perfume post. @.@

I only use Kenzo perfume. Nothing strong. :)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 21, 2008 at 5:41 PM

yay yay!!! im so glad this samsara is suitable for aquarian like me!! :))

i've nvr tried samsara but im sure i'll smell good too! ;) will definitely head to the counter & ask for a spray next time im at perfume dept. :)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 21, 2008 at 5:42 PM

LJ, hahaha.. u outbid me while im asleep ye? hehe... im now at MPG! How can a pink lover like me not bid here?? :)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 21, 2008 at 5:43 PM

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 6:16 PM

Hi dearie... just starting my rounds.. what a day!! All i can say is ..never underestimate the power of a prayer...

Hope you are feeling better ya :)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 8:43 PM

LJ! Ha ha ha...B&B u is so tepat! I am waiting for today's ep ni, want to know B's answer to Marcus...what a cliffhanger that was yesterday kan? We shall continue bitching later sweetie! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 8:46 PM

Hi Kim! Oh please try it out the next time u go shopping, and don't's for night time! :)

Yeah, we couldn't very well tell her what was going on with her BO and all, without offending her so my friends and I just suffered in silence LOL! ;)

Oh thanks for sharing ur fave scents with me Kim! I always like to find out what perfumes others like. This pic here is just 1/4 of my entire Perfume Gallery and it does look good doesn't it? I have more than 100 minis now! :):):)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 8:48 PM

GP! Am watching boldie on youtube now.. but slow lahh.. so got to let it finish buffering then syok..

OK.. we bitach later ya..

Enjoy your dinner with B!

Anonymous,  August 21, 2008 at 8:49 PM

Greetings MPG! It is funny how some perfumes smell terrific on one person and hideous on another...

Just completed my Roxy's Best Of... rounds, I'm starting to sound like the Genie Princess here, but since I got my shiny new EntreCard I've been dropping 300 EC per day from Rex's Mac at the beach, before London and Maddie wake up in the morning and before I get to work.

What impresses me the most is how you find time to drop AND comment...always much appreciated!


Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 8:53 PM

Sushi!!! I LOVE your comment here MEOW!!

LOL! Is Mama really gonna try Samsara? I hope she won't turn into a Stinkor he he!! And yes, I know u're a Virgo, so that makes u sweet-smelling to me all the time cutie! ;)

Mama is so smart to know so many perfume brands and yes, those are my Escada range. I now have 8 of the Escadas after B got me some new ones on his EURO trip so woo hoo! Oh thanks for noticing my special edition JPG range, I got those in Singapore! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 8:56 PM

ECL, first discuss perfume, then proceed to some bitching LOL!

Kenzo is not for me actually, I got a set of Kenzo minis, but the bottles were not so pretty, so decided not to display them at my gallery LOL! Oh but I do have the one with the flower, the tall bottle! I'm not sure what it's called but that one's pretty! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 9:00 PM

Jean!!! According to my book, Samsara is NOT suitable for Aquarians la he he he!! But you never know kan, so go ahead and make that spray, lemme know if u like it okay? ;)

PW is lotsa fun! I'm so glad we ladies are in this together-gether, lagi la FUN! And YAY! Now AGP is right next to my Perfume Gallery, thanks sweetie! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 9:03 PM

LJ! I am done with my rounds today YAY! Also had soup the whole day so my throat feels a bit better. B is finally up and we're getting ready to head out for dinner. I'll catch up with u on the meantime..shhhhhh! ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 at 9:08 PM

All i can say is OMG!!! and I even watch the sneak preview for 2mrw... another OMG!! lolzz

Enjoy your dinner dearie and so glad to know you are feeling better :)

Later girlfriend :)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 at 9:09 PM

Hola Foxy Roxy! Ha ha... I see ur new RBO is inspiring you to become a Drop Master huh? That's awesome, it's cool to see what sort of response you'll get after dropping 300 daily, so keep it up!

Oh Eternity CK is another one that doesn't smell too great on another friend of mine, but smells superb on me! I bought the limited edition set on my last trip to Melbourne, but it's almost finishing, so using it sparingly now LOL! :):):)

Elara August 22, 2008 at 12:50 AM

GP! I like the very la ur koleksi! Mesti B can tell easily kan ur mood according to the scent u wear lol!

Hehehe..just now LJ plak call my C tu CC = Colin Cute! Lol!! Kalau wanna start a contest, I nak kasi apa pun tak tau! :):)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 22, 2008 at 1:10 AM

hehe.. oopps, i did it again!! i read too fast that i've missed yr "exception" word. :P

marzie!!! i've just secure back my spot at yr PW. Happy to see me anot? :)

SHIELA August 22, 2008 at 5:15 AM

wow! what a collection you have. i haven't tried samsara yet. my favourite is lacoste orig and clinique happy and my friends said that it smell nice and the smell stayed longer with i'm

have a nice day.

J@n!ce August 22, 2008 at 8:55 AM

Nice to see another addition to your collection. It stands out from the rest bcos of its color.

Btw, I've done the 6 layers tag.

Happy Friday, Marzie :)

Anonymous,  August 22, 2008 at 12:09 PM

Hey Marzie. I was initially confused reading the comments here ... is it Sensuous Samsara or Sensasi Soap Opera ?!! :D

I totally agree with u, it's very sensuous. Every single smell of it almost left me in a trance, totally intoxicated :)


Sushi August 22, 2008 at 12:41 PM

Whoosh whoosh Marzie! Wow, is this only part of your gallery? I think minis are a good investment because sometimes you get tired of the 100 ml ones and wanna vary.
Singapore is a great place to buy things half price, at least in 2004 when Mama was there she got some perfumes for cheaper :) Now, she's too far away from these deals :(

Mariuca August 22, 2008 at 3:48 PM

Hey LJ, I still have not watched the OMG episode! Only watching tonight, so we'll discuss later yeah? It's another day filled with errands for me, catch ya in a bit dearie! Drops pun tak buat lagi ni! ;)

Mariuca August 22, 2008 at 3:51 PM

Yay, thanks Debbie! I also love the very my koleksi! After your email last night, I really feel like going on a perfume shopping spree today, how la like dat? ;)

Hey, u can even offer EC credits for ur contest if you like, lotsa peeps doing that kan? For sure I join nanti LOL! Happy Friday cutie! :):):)

Mariuca August 22, 2008 at 3:52 PM

Jean!!!! You've been outbid again by BONO ha ha! Aiyo, yesterday I had to outbid him at Emila's. Now looks like u have to outbid him here pulak lol! :):):)

Mariuca August 22, 2008 at 3:54 PM

Hi Shiela!! Thanks so much sweetie and I LOVE Clinique Happy too! So floral and sweet! I even wrote a review on it somewhere here in MPG! :):):)

Mariuca August 22, 2008 at 3:59 PM

Yay, Jan is here today! Hola Jan, we have missed u here at MPG! :)

Actually I got this perfume several months ago oredi but was only inspired to write a review on it now he he! I love the scent and I love the bottle, u know la red is my fave colour!

I'll come see ur tag later okay, have a good one dear! :):):)

Mariuca August 22, 2008 at 4:01 PM

Ala Naz!!!! I've been waiting for weeks to biatch with LJ, but had to postpone cause I was so busy with work, ni baru je dapat chance to "discuss" LOL! Nak join ke, but first u must be a Boldie fan LOL!!

Ahhhh, best kan Samsara? I LOVE everything abt it too, oh now I feel like buying the big bottle for woosh woosh! :):):)

Mariuca August 22, 2008 at 4:04 PM

He he so cute la Sushi! Now also Sushi is woosh wooshing here LOL!

Oh definitely this is a great investment! My minis are strictly for display, so I don't use them. I use the big bottles for woosh woosh he he!

I bought like 3 different sets and a whole bunch of minis on my last Sing trip! Upon arrival at the airport, the duty-free shops were already calling out to me, so naturally had to pop in and shop away ha ha ha!! :):):)

LadyJava August 22, 2008 at 4:56 PM

Wooosh Woosh.. wah even Sushi is learning how to Woosh woshh.. such a smart doggie you ....

Eh GP!! I REALLY up to date I even watched yesterday's epi... O..M..G!!!! eheh...

Ok.. will wait patiently for you to catch up and then we can biatch..

Err.. Naz ni peminat Boldie gak ke??

Anonymous,  August 22, 2008 at 6:06 PM

It's ok Marzie, I'll leave it to you & yr girls. Maybe you cud add another chat box just for 'Boldie Biatchin' :D

Hmm ... I wonder if someone will buy for you to 'whoosh whoosh' next week ;)

Have a wonderful weekend my dear.


Restnrileks August 22, 2008 at 10:34 PM

Anonymous,  August 22, 2008 at 11:13 PM

Now, you've got me wondering how it really smells. The next time I'm at my favorite counter, I'll ask for it. :-)

Mariuca August 23, 2008 at 1:10 PM

Hi LJ! Oh I finally watched ep 20, but 21 blm lagi. Lemme watch 21st first before we continue okies?

Comel kan si Sushi ni, sekejap je dah pandai woosh woosh with us ha ha! Happy Sat dearie! :):):)

Mariuca August 23, 2008 at 1:11 PM

Have a good weekend and just skip through the B&B comments yeah? ;)

Mariuca August 23, 2008 at 1:14 PM

Hola Jacqueline, welcome to MPG! Yay, I'm glad I got u convinced ha ha! Hope ul love the scent as much as me, happy perfume shopping! :)

LadyJava August 23, 2008 at 1:19 PM

Good afternoon Mariuca! Ni dah jadi normal pple ni polite sikit lah...lolz

I was too tired last night that I slept through the nite and only woke up at 11ish tadi.. then time for chores and ni baru nak dok depan Miss Fly but tak lama coz nak get ready to go office and God knows how long that will be...the connection kat office tu a bit sucky yesterday so hoping it's gonna be ok today :( so that watch Boldie on my fav channel on youtube!!

Yelah so smart doggie lah Sushi tu...heheh.. woof woof

You have a great weekend with B if I don see you ya :)

Mariuca August 23, 2008 at 2:19 PM

Ha ha ha...once in a while jadi normal ppl ok what...cuma we'll be missing out on other stuff like being first commenter or completing our 300 drops lolz!

I'm abt to eat roti canai ni, and watch ep 21! Makan sambil tgk Boldie baru la best! Have fun at the office! :):):)

LadyJava August 23, 2008 at 2:24 PM

ok dearie.. eh epi 22 blum kluar ke??

Mariuca August 23, 2008 at 4:09 PM

Of coz LJ, kalau tak biatch mcm mana hati nak lega? ;)

Alamak, EC outage la now, can't drop for now I guess. Good thing I oredi dropped both on LJL! :)

LadyJava August 23, 2008 at 5:43 PM

wah EC outage?? on no have not finished my 300 yet...

Tulah GP .. must watch yesterday epi then can biatch!!

emilayusof August 23, 2008 at 10:40 PM

GP, my sister had Samsara before and I didn't really like the smell. My head will go spinning everytime I smell it. My sister didn't have the BO problem though. I guess the smell would be different on different people. OK, I must try and stop at Guerlain's next time.

Tina! Welcome to my Gallery! This is just a section of it, I have like 6 more cases woo hoo! :)

My collection are all minis. The normal bottles are for me to use, but the gallery is for me to view LOL! ;)

Hahahaha GP & LJ! Woosh, woosh ( a little dialect from my mother tongue Woof, woof hehe) Curious, snoopy I am: Who's Boldie that you girls so much talk about? :)

Sushi August 27, 2008 at 10:56 AM

Singapore is very good for shopping. Mama found disposable contact lenses and of course perfumes for half price. Pity she was on her way to countries and couldn't carry a lot of luggage, so there was very,very little shopping:(
HAHAHA so, are the mini ones only for the home decor and very,very special occasions? Woof!

Mariuca August 29, 2008 at 11:11 AM

Curious snoopy indeed so cute!! Ha ha!!

Sushi!!! Boldie is actually Bold and Beautiful, the soap? LOL!! We are both addicted to it and that's what we've been discussin here he he!! Ooooh I bet Mama doesn't watch that show huh? He he he!!

My minis are all for my gallery, which I don't use of course! I already have more than 100 minis, and am still looking for more YAY! :):):)

Sushi September 1, 2008 at 9:59 AM

Hi GP, yes Bold and Beautiful soap... Mama stopped watching soaps ever since she moved abroad. Just no time, crazy life. She sometimes sees some scenes on screen when she turns on the TV. Do you watch it in your computer?
You should try and watch the Brazilian soap operas, they are fantastic!

Mariuca September 1, 2008 at 10:16 PM

Oh poor Mama missing out on some good TV due to her crazy schedule huh? Nope, I watch it on TV, after getting the file online he he!!! The one showing in Malaysia is behind by a couple of months. ;)

Brazilian soap operas? Wow, maybe I'll check out a few, do u have any good titles to recommend?? MEOW!! :):):)

Sushi September 9, 2008 at 10:55 AM

Whoosh Marzie, tell me about getting the file online and watching on TV! I need to modernize myself! Never heard of that. Mama recommends a Brazilian soap Opera called " Por Amor"
(For Love)by Manoel Carlos. Gr8 story, so much so, that some friend of Mama from Africa told her she watched it dubbed into French. Brazil exports a lot of soap operas and hopefully to Malaysia too ;)

Mariuca September 9, 2008 at 4:04 PM

Never heard of that Sushi??? Oh I must email u then abt this then he he! Wait for my email okay, so mama and u can happily watch more TV together! :)

Thanks Sushi, I shall see if Por Amor is available on line! Always on the lookout for new TV shows. :D

Thanks for this very informative post :)

Whenever we wear perfumes we should always take to consider our body reaction to perfumes or colognes. Just like your friend J whose skin is somehow oily or perhaps she/he also perspires a lot. These cause perfumes to smell differently.

I haven’t got the chance to smell the scent of Samsara perfume. I hope I could stumble upon such sweet sensual scent someday.
