Adult me would say, save it for a rainy day. But in reality, I have 10 tabs of online shops open right now.
A new year always calls for new exciting goodies to either impulse purchase, if you’re like me, or plan out distinctly, so you don’t have to eat maggi for the next few weeks. Everything has an expiration date to its lifespan, whether you like it or not. Invest on brand new techs and splurges, but this time around, be a little smarter about it. Here it is, a list to give your ang pao money a purpose:
1. The Audi of All Speakers
Haman Kardon supplies audio equipment to vehicles manufacturers like Audi, BMW, MINI, Volvo and many others. A house party is never complete without a good sound-system!
Harman Kardon Go + Play Bluetooth Speaker, RM1399, Available at Harvey Norman.
2. For All Skin Types
A facial brush with T-Sonic Pulsations that is supposed to deep cleanse your skin, without being too harsh that it scrapes off anything.
See how it works here.
FOREO Luna Mini 2 – Fuchsia, RM659, Available at Sephora.
3. Take The Time For Some Headspace
If you’re not aware of this app, it’s basically a gym-membership for your mind. From guided meditations to digital mindfulness training. Available on iOS and Google Play.

4. Capture Raw Moments
Appreciate the manual process of it all. Film cameras are not cheap, especially if you’re looking for one in tip-top condition.
Check out Film Fancy on Facebook to shop their latest finds within the price range of RM200 and above, depending on the condition and brand.

5. A Sturdy Sports Bra
Every girl needs a good pair and it’s usually when you least expect it that you need one. Plus, I think sports bras lasts with a long life span so why not invest in a good pair?

8. For Both Skin and Fabric
We love a good multi-use item! A natural grace of rose to have you flutter in every crowd. If you’re planning to make your home smell just as sweet as you do, remember to spray from a distant. You don’t want it to be overwhelming!
Get to it, ladies!
