finds: chong-yo

Introducing finds – a new section highlighting recent purchases and lucky stumbles upon things of beauty and intrigue.

Today I went shopping for the first time at Chong-Yo in south-east Taichung. It’s a huge department store. While I still prefer the Eslite bookstore mall near Hotel One, I definitely like Chong-Yo more than Sogo or Mitsukoshi.

I overspent at the M.A.C. counter, purchasing a beautiful cherry red lipstick, a stick of matching lip liner and some great black liquid eyeliner that has a slight green tinge to it. Lovely.

M.A.C. Liquidlast Liner – Inkspill
M.A.C. Retro Matte Lipstick – Ruby Wood
M.A.C. Lip Pencil – Cherry

I also found that Chong-Yo contains one of my favourite stores, a la sha. I absolutely love their stuff and splurged on a cute red blouse and a super comfy yellow overcoat. Here they are:

But, my most excitement-inducing purchase was a copy of waterfall magazine. I bought it at Eslite on the 12 floor of Chong-Yo.

I haven’t seen this magazine before and have no idea whether or not I’m behind the times announcing this one, especially considering it’s been on the shelves since July 2009, but I don’t care. I’ve only flicked through it and I’m already smitten. I haven’t dared to pry open the covers too far yet. I really want to savour my deep-sea dive into it, holding my breath and searching for treasure. Therefore, I won’t elaborate too much on the content and what I thought of it (or will think of it) in this post. Stay tuned for an in-depth review.

One last thing. An old friend from New Zealand has bundled together some artwork on Mischief Champion. I laughed a lot at many of them and particularly enjoyed Deer Deer, Beautiful Hat and Rabbit Pig.
