Uncategorized AN OFFICIAL ALIEN 9 February 2009


Well… this is it. I officially have my Work Permit for China.
BRING IT ON!!!!!

One brilliant thing about Shanghai? Their amazzzzing MANICURES.
This was only 58? (US$8.50), and it was considered pricey by Shanghai standards!

Layer of OPI pale-pink, followed by 3 layers of various coloured glitter on the tips

      But apparently there’s even cheaper! I just haven’t found em yet ‘cos my office is right in the middle of the city so I think the stuff around is a bit more expensive..

      I can’t believe it was considered one of the ‘more expensive’ ones too… in Australia it’s about 3x the price!

    I miss the cheap costs of labour! Have you gotten your hair washed yet? I got it for 10yuan per wash, cut and blow dry, at the more expensive place 30yuan! Even the cheapest places in Sydney (Campsie) are still at least $10AUD and that’s a really really crap haircut and no blow dry.

      Not yet.. dya reckon they wash/cut/dry it well? I’m too scared to venture into one of the random roadside shops 😛

    GREAT nails! I’m stealing the look and asking my manicurist to do it for me! 🙂 Sadly I will pay nothing near $8.50 though, lol. Anyway, I’m so glad your move has gone relatively smoothly!

    • beverly posted on February 10, 2009 at 1:55 pm

      Hehe do! Next time I think I’ll go for the same style, but like a deep deep deep red.. hope that turns out 😛
