HK 2017 Haul

FEW BITS AND BOBS

Am I getting old but shopping in Hong Kong doesn’t really excite me as much as it use to. Years ago, I would come back with a suitcase ready to explode with all of the crap I’ve bought but now, my suitcase was only half full. Maybe I’ve learnt to only purchase the things I need?

My number one rule in Hong Kong when it comes to shopping is to only purchase things that you can’t get your hands on easily in the UK or is Asia exclusive. Second rule is, if you can get your hands on said item in the UK, only buy it in HK if it’s cheaper after calculating the exchange rate etc. Not cheaper by few pounds but a good amount.

Innisfree is really good brand when it comes to skin care. Even my cousin agrees and that’s all he uses. Really excited to try all of these out.

Lotte Chococo Chocolate Matcha biscuits
All purchased from Okashi Land. Beware, it’s dangerous in there. I had to resist buying everything.

Wasn’t too sure on whether to add snacks in but why not! I may have demolished the biscuits before I had taken the above photo. If you look carefully, you can see it has been opened. No regrets.

Have you purchased anything recently?

    I would love to go shopping in Hong Kong one day, I remember my Dad going when I was young and bringing back some amazing bits. I can imagine though as you get used to it, the fun does fade a little – as like anything.

    I am loving the sound of the capsule pack.

    I love those sports bars and I bet the snacks were so yummy. I always spend ages in supermarkets in foreign countries looking what they have.

    I've never been to HK before – but I'm considering adding it to my bucket list, and shopping would definitely be on the list of things to do when there! x

      I hit the publish button before finishing my comment, lol! I was going to say that your HK posts make me very excited to go ^_^

    Ha those biscuits must have been pretty good if they didn't last long. I agree there is no point getting things and bringing them back if you can get them here or get them here fora similar price.

    Couldn't agree more. Its really a lot cheaper in Asia when you do shopping. Shop til you drop if you don't know how to control.

    As I've never been on a shopping trip in HK, I think my suitcase would explode on the way home 🙂 I can only imagine all those wonderful things which would make its way to my shopping cart.

    I always run that rule when I am away only buy things if it's a decent amount cheaper or you can't buy it back home x

  8. 10th May 2017 / 10:41 am

    I only tend to buy things abroad if I can't get them in the UK or if they're significantly cheaper x

  9. 10th May 2017 / 2:22 pm

    I have never been to Hong Kong but I agree on buying things that you can't easily purchase in the UK. The chocolates look so good x

    I have not been to Hong Kong. Yet! It is on my list and I certainly would like to add some of that skin care range to my list too!! xx

    It was so hard for me not to shop in Hong Kong when I visited, years ago. Everything was so tempting and the food and snacks delicious. I could have brought a suitcase back only with food if I wasn't traveling for another month after HK.

    I like the Matcha chocolate. My partners mum brought some back from her visit to Japan

  13. 10th May 2017 / 7:39 pm

    I think a trip to hong kong is obviously needed… 😉

  14. 10th May 2017 / 9:06 pm

    Those biscuits look so delicious, would love to try snacks from Hong Kong! 🙂

  15. 10th May 2017 / 11:55 pm

    I'd love to go shopping in Hong Kong one day. Although, I'd have to keep myself on a budget or, like you, wouldn't have enough space to bring it all home! I'd be excited to try the Matcha chocolate

  16. 11th May 2017 / 7:25 am

    I'd love to go shopping in Honk Kong, good rules to stick to! I don't blame you for tucking into your delicious snacks 🙂

  17. 11th May 2017 / 1:22 pm

    I'm definitely avoiding Okashi Land if I ever go Hong Kong because the bits you've picked up look delicious and I'd definitely want to buy the whole shop

  18. 11th May 2017 / 6:00 pm

    Never been to HK but I can only imagine the discounts you can get! I always like to bring back snacks that you definitely can't get in the UK 😀

  19. 11th May 2017 / 6:33 pm
