1. Melbourne! Because of how diverse it is and how there’s something for everyone. (Foodie, nature walker person, shopaholic, coffeeholic, wine-holic, beer-aholic, sportsaholic) With its famed (infamous?) 4-seasons in a day, it keeps everyone on their toes to dress as the weather changes drastically throughout the day. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Each time I whinge about life, I tell myself to shut up because I’m extremely fortunate to call this place home.

2. I love reading about your bags! Post more and err, post more? 😛

1. I live in London, and the most interesting thing I can think about London is … the rain. On some days it’s like a spritz of face mist that never ends, tiny pinpricks that finally flatten your hair after you’ve walked a mile. On other days (especially in Spring and Summer) however it is as heavy as a huge flush of water that never ends for hours! The regular mac and wellies usually work against both though, but the windy gales mean the cheap umbrellas always end up in the bin!

2. I love reading your sunscreen and foundation reviews. Our skin tones are quite similar and so I really trust your swatches.

Whoaaaa did you say one international reader? Pick me pick me LOL

I live around Leuven, which is a university town about 26 kilometers from Brussels. Because it’s a university town, every September we get a new batch of students (I’m feeling older and older looking at the new students. The ones who started university last year are 10 years younger. This year it’ll be 11 eeep). There is a statue in the city center called Fonske, which is a little man holding an open book with one hand and pouring a glass of water into his head with the other. The students always have a way of messing with it. I’ve seen that statue with a Phantom of the Opera mask, with foam all over the place (somebody must have put laundry detergent in it), and so on. It’s always kind of funny to see (especially when I’m not the one who has to clean up)!

I like your Save and Splurge feature! It’s very helpful to compare two similar products in different price ranges. Something for everyone!

1. Surabaya, Indonesia 😉 It has all the delightful shopping malls and attraction, but minus the hectic, fast-paced lifestyle of a metropolitan city. Life can be considered easy and friendly here. One of the best places to live if you want to relax and enjoy life.

2. I love how you talk a lot about blushes, because I am a blush whore. And I like to see how you put on your eye makeup, because I also have small Asian eyes, like yours.

Cecilia Wong March 18, 2013 at 9:20 am

Ipoh- Of course it’s all about the food! But what I like about Ipoh is the relaxed lifestyle. You can go most everywhere in tshirt and shorts. You can go out any time of the day or night and find something good to eat. It is a place where a line of 4 or 5 cars is a traffic jam. Give me Ipoh or give me death! :) Not that extreme of course.
I love your skincare reviews. You’re my go to resource person when I want to try something, because like you, I have sensitive skin.
Btw, for Christmas, I bought this Camellia blush for my son’s girlfriend. Upon your recommendation, of course. And she loves it. Now I want one for me!

Issa March 18, 2013 at 9:22 am

1. I am from the Philippines! What’s interesting in my place is the hospitality of the people. There are also a lot of places to visit like Ocean Park, Star City and there are also a lot of malls for the shopaholics. But Philippines is mostly known for our beaches! We have a lot of beautiful beaches to go to especially Boracay and Palawan…

2. I love your posts about makeup reviews especially the eyeshadow palettes and of course your red lippies because you really look pretty on them. :)

Parita March 18, 2013 at 9:29 am

I am originally from Bombay (Mumbai), India but currently residing in KL :) The best part about bombay is that its a city which never sleeps! a true metropolitan city with diverse cultures its truly the heart of India. It has one of the best local transportation system in the country! Love the spirit of the city!

I love reading skin care and blush reviews :) they are extremely thorough! Thank you for the awesome opportunity!

Lingzy March 18, 2013 at 9:39 am

I’m from Penang, where all the glorious street food you can ever find all in 1 place! XD

I started reading your blog just a while ago when I started to care for my face and to learn make up. You’ve shared so much with your post that I got to know myself better. I like that your post is easy to read and it’s easy to make product comparison over different blogpost where I can just go back and search for it and compare what you’ve wrote myself. :) Thanks!

Hasegawa Ayane March 18, 2013 at 9:41 am

1. I live in Malaysia and it’s interesting because food is almost always available ;D The variety of food makes answering the question “where/what to eat?” such an impossible task to do!

2. My favourite type of posts to read at MWS are the product reviews because it’s honest and presented in a quirky and interesting manner.

Crabby March 18, 2013 at 9:46 am

Penang: A small island with beautiful coasts and scrumptious cuisines not to mention the great folks living here :). If you are a ‘foodie’ Pg will be your destination. With hard work i still maintain my waistline….haha..
I love your skincare posts especially on new brands in town even though i may not get it in Pg. A good excuse for me to travel….:) Luckily i have a fren in US that will carry some skincare back for me every year :):)

Ivanka March 18, 2013 at 9:48 am

Hi PB~!

1. Ampang; because of the foodie and cheap mamak.

2. I particularly enjoy the Save & Splurge post as it is helpful to look at alternatives. I’d say it is always tempting to splurge more than saving because whenever a review post is out from MWS, I uncontrollably feel the need to get my hands on them and try all.

Ying March 18, 2013 at 9:59 am

Hi, I live in Malacca and one of the most interesting things about Malacca is of course it’s history! Besides that, the food here is a major plus about living in Malacca. I especially love the wantan noodles here cause they don’t taste the same elsewhere. To me, at least ????
I love reading all beauty-related posts on our blog! I always find out about new beauty products on your site and I find your reviews very helpful when I consider buying a new product ????

Goh Xin Yu March 18, 2013 at 10:01 am

1. Currently living in Penang. Only one word to best describe it—-> FOOD!
2. Love to read about Save & Splurge. Who doesn’t want to enjoy maximum benefits and effects at a minimal investment.

Joanne March 18, 2013 at 10:05 am

Petaling Jaya – I love this beautiful city, you can get everything under the sun here. Good food, great shopping and good amenities.

I love reading your reviews on makeup. Learn so much about what’s new and makeup tips all at the comfort of my home.

Huda March 18, 2013 at 10:05 am

Hi there, Paris! Here are my answers:

1. I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the city filled with vibrant people from all parts of the world. So, we get to have all the interesting cuisines, arts and (some) cultures as well!

2. I check your “Lipsticks” posts like a maniac, because I’m nuts about lipsticks (and might be a lipstick hoarder, whelp) and your reviews are always fun to read :)


Eunice.C March 18, 2013 at 10:10 am

1. I live in heart of KL, and thing is, the people here are too busy working, and minding their own lives, that I hardly get to speak to my neighbors other than to exchange pleasantries .. Life in the midst of the concrete consumerism jungle can be challenging and lonely.. At the same time, that’s what I love about being in this city.. I am near every conceivable mall and shop, and that makes it a great place to shop for all the things a woman can want :)

2. I absolutely love all the reviews MWS have done on oils !! Im a firm believer in using all sorts of oils and I swear by them . I use them on my face, body, hair, eyelashes and even nails ! They get absorbed really quickly, and my body gets to absorb all the great nutrients which in turn nourishes it and gives me that healthy glow.

1. I live in Subang Jaya, Malaysia. What makes this town interesting is that it emerged from being a cluster of housing estates evolved from oil palm plantations into an almost burgeoning city near the eaves of Kuala Lumpur. Here, we live the lifestyle of quiet suburbia with the comforts of the city! ^.^

2. My favorite feature would be the open cafe sessions! ^.^ I just like to see what all of us are up to, because I’m such a nosy busy body hah hah hah!

Happy anniversary! Just back from a long trip out of town without good cellular signals. Miss your posts which I am going to check out in a min.

(1) Bangkok. It’s THE place for food, shopping, massage, night out, temple visits and sight seeing. Bangkok existed since the 15th century… not too old but not new either. Being the capital city, you can easily go anywhere you want – North, South, East, West. If you want a quick beach holiday, there’s Cha-Am which is 2 hours drive from Bangkok. Apart from the petrol and real estate prices, everything is so cheap here!

One more thing I LOVE about Bangkok is how convenient the public transport are. From big to small, there are the Sky Train (new lines are expanding now), public bus (I know you love!), brightly-coloured Taxis (I love love love!), Song Teao (literally means 2 rows. A truck-like transportation usually running shorter distances than taxis and they have fixed routes), road ka-poa (4 wheel version of tuk tuk), tuk tuk (now everyone knows this one eh?) and finally, motorcycle taxi. 😀 On the klongs (water passage or river) there are the boats. Although not perfect, these transportations are sufficient for every needs as Bangkokians have been battling with traffic jam for many years. :p

(2) I love reading about your thought provoking posts, such as those that deal with inner self, or observations of people. 😀 Can i pick one only? If I may add, I love also your makeup review and full face makeup shots (FOTD?). So chic and so fresh. 😀

Jen March 18, 2013 at 10:13 am

I live in Shah Alam, Selangor. What’s great about Shah Alam is the diversity of food (what else!) from Chinese to Japanese to Middle Eastern all within the same area :)

I love reading about your Save/Splurge posts :)

Esther Neo March 18, 2013 at 10:13 am

I am from Singapore *doing Ms Universe Wave*….where everything is so near yet so far. You can find litte india, arab street, chinatown, vietnam town, and just about any nationalities you can think of. And most importantly….World Peace!

I love to read about your skincare and makeup reviews and your opinions towards your own life. I am sure it wakes a lot of people up and start to appreciate their lives and families and friends.

Kelly March 18, 2013 at 10:22 am

1) ????Taiwan. ALOT OF NICE FOOD AND CHEAP BARGAINS!!!! Taiwan is basically a place u should visit XD You won’t regret(:

2) Skin-care and makeup.

Aileen March 18, 2013 at 10:25 am

1. I live in Kuala Lumpur. The most amazing thing about my city is that you’ll never go hungry! There are restaurants open 24 hours of the day. There’s always something delicious to eat any time of the day & night!
2. Definitely it’s the makeup reviews that I enjoy reading the most. It’s always great to have another person’s opinion about makeup products before we actually purchase them. Can’t get enough of the myriad of makeup item’s out there!

Amalina March 18, 2013 at 10:26 am

I live in KL (in particular Bandar Sri Permaisuri). I love my town particularly because everything is available in just one place and it is located in the middle of map. Also if I need to go anywhere, I dont have to go through massive traffic jams because Im ahead of everyone (hehe). I went to work in Shah Alam so, when I head out to work, I head OUT of the city whereelse most people head INTO the city. So, no massive traffic for me. Yeay!! LOL

I love reading your Save/Splurge post. If there is an alternative product at cheaper price but with the same quality, definitely go for the cheaper one. And I have to thank you for trying all these products and giving us the input :)

Bugs March 18, 2013 at 10:28 am

Gonna pass the chance for others who want them as I’m more into skincare plus my lips are allergic to lipstick. Just wanna share my ‘joy’ for this giveaway, so generous of Shiseido. Hey PB, I guess this is one of the happy time of being a blogger huh coz I sure enjoy it as a blog reader. Hehe!

Btw, is there any problem on email notification on reply to comment? Ever since I subscribe to receive new post by email when u were ‘on leave’ not long ago, I didn’t received any email when u replied my comments anymore. At first I thought maybe u were too busy but 2 days ago I had nothing to do so I stalk your blog and accidently say your reply ( I like to read comments by others ). Just wanna let u know in case something wrong somewhere.

Hey Bugs, there was a bit of a glitch so I had to make the “Email Replies to Comment” function selective and not blog wide. Now you can opt in to email replies. There is a box under the comment where you can check to receive replies to comments so if you check that, you’ll get an email notification when your comment is replied to. Sorry about that!

Bugs March 18, 2013 at 5:25 pm

Yay ! Thanks PB for fixing the email issue. I received the email on your reply. Thanks!

christina March 18, 2013 at 10:30 am

I’m from Kota Kinabalu Sabah. Loads of tourist attractions, beaches, mountain, & seafood galore !
Love your food & skincare reviews ^^V
