One thing I love about living in an Asian Country is the amount of free things you get when you shop!  Drinks come with free key chains, free gloves when you buy dish soap, face lotion when you buy magazines, cotton cosmetic pads when you buy makeup, etc etc.  Quickly I ended up with mountain of things ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Read the rest of this entry »
