November Beauty Haul


It's December already! Time flies... Been really busy with work and hardly have time to update blogs nowadays. Lots of cafe post to write but let me share with you some of the products that I have collectively bought for the past 2 months.

1. Little Deer Charcoal Tea Tree & Lemon Soap
Stumbled across the Little Deer brand when I was at the bazaar in Publika. All ingredients used are all natural and it is 100% handmade. Only at RM20, they also include a soap pouch for easier lathering. Can be used on both face and body! I choose this charcoal soap as it helps in detox, clarifying, absorbing dirt and unclog pores from the skin. They have many other range of soaps as well which can be found on their website at www.littledeersoap.com.

2. Batiste Dry Shampoo
I always find the dry shampoo sold in Sephora on the pricey side. Imagine my delight when I found out that Bastiste Dry Shampoo is finally sold in Malaysia! Choose the original one as I felt the other ones were more heavy on the fragrance. Purchase it at RM24.90 if I am not mistaken. Only one size available which is 200ml. I saw 100ml ones being sold on ASOS long time ago...hopefully they will bring in 100ml ones as well so it is easier to pack while traveling. Loving it so far! I purchased this from Aeon Big but it also can be found in Jaya Grocer :)

3. MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence
Been eyeing this product for the longest time ever since I saw reviews that this is a dupe for the famous SK-II Pitera Essence. Unfortunately, MISSHA does not have their counters in Malaysia anymore and I was lucky to find a MISSHA store while traveling in Siem Reap, Cambodia.  Initially it was sold at 60USD, which I was reluctant to pay such a steep price since Korea does not sell it that expensive. However, they were having 30% off all products in the store so I took the opportunity to buy it since it is justifiable with the price in Korea with a few dollars difference. I have been using it for 2-3 weeks now so will post up a more detailed review soon.

4. MISSHA Natural Konjac Cleansing Puff
Decided to try this out since it was priced at 4.50USD before discount as I have seen a couple of cleansing puff on the market for the past few months. This cleansing puff is made from Konjac plant which is effective in cleansing and exfoliating the skin. It is very soft and does not irritate my skin!

5. MISSHA Pure Source Sheet Mask
100% pure cotton sheet mask with serum on natural ingredients. I went with the lemon one since sitting on the tuk tuk for a couple of hours made my skin quite oily and clogged up due to the dusts and sand. This mask helps with sebum and pore care.

Pizza Hut Jam-Packed Pizza Blogger Party


Recently, I was invited to the Pizza Hut Blogger Party to check out their newly launch pizza called Jam-Packed pizza! It was held at the Maju Junction outlet in KL. It was my first time in Maju Junction so luckily I had my GPS with me :)

 Mr. Yusof Ishak, Senior Marketing Manager giving his speech

"“Double-layered, Jam-packed, and Extra-ordinary” best illustrates the latest offering from Pizza Hut, offering an abundance of flavours in just one pizza! Nothing brings people together like a good delicious pizza and Pizza Hut has proved its commitment time and time again in creating the best scrumptious “signature” pizzas that customers love at an affordable price.

Having some starters before the pizza arrives!

As the name suggests, the Jam-Packed Pizza is a double layered pizza loaded with sauces, toppings, and 3-flavoured cheese, giving twice the satisfaction in each bite. Indulge in the delicious crispy upper tortilla crust topped with luscious pesto sauce, shredded chicken, chicken pepperoni florets and capsicum.  The bottom pizza complements the flavours on top with an abundance of chicken pepperoni and fresh ingredients that are simply irresistible.

Kronenbourg 1664 brings a night of laughter with Comedy Night


 photo ComedyNight9.jpg
Work-life balance has mostly been ignored in our work culture and this causes us to be stressed most of the time as we are so caught up with meeting our deadlines and we forget to breath a.k.a enjoy moments of our life. I used to be stuck in office until late or bring my work back home then work until the A.Ms due to tight deadlines where I have gotten so stressed and unhappy at some point of my life. Then, I decided it is time for a change by having more work life balance by going out with my friends and events just to take some time off from work and clear my mind.

With Kronenbourg 1664's latest campaign 'Taste the French Way of Life' encourages people to have a work-life balance by just simply spending time with friends and loved ones and also enjoying simple pleasures of life. I had the opportunity to attend one of their event which is Comedy Night that was held in Tom, Dick & Harry's in Oasis Square.

The Kronenbourg 1664 Hammer Machine is the ultimate stress reliever where guest get to play around with before the start of the event!'

Like they say, laughter is the best medicine and the awesome stand up comedians - Andrew Netto, Kuah Jenhan and Phoon Chi Ho did a great job on making the audience laugh all night long! Sometimes, you just need a little laughter to bring back humour too your life. I had so much fun laughing that night and it was a great stress reliever after a week of working!

Foodgasm Fest 2.0

 photo DSC_6203-2.jpg
Food is a universal language and Foodgasm Fest 2.0 brought in many crowd at Taman Rimba Kiara TTDI last Sunday. I headed out with my friend, Amelia to the food festival around 11.30am. Due to limited parking space and people parking at the side of the road, the traffic condition was pretty bad. I decided to park a few kilometres away from the location and walk there. Luckily, a parking spot was found quickly opposite the school. The walk was far but most of the people did the same thing to avoid being caught in traffic.

 photo DSC_6172-2.jpg
We arrived to a crowded venue where people were already at the festival since 10am. The atmosphere was lively and bustling with people walking about the food stalls and queuing up for food. We came across some booth in the middle of the park which has a freaking long queue and I was curious about it so I asked one of the people wearing the Foodgasm Fest shirt on what is it about. They were selling drinks there and I was telling my friend that I am not going to line up that long just to buy drinks, and thinking that the other stalls will sell drinks...might as well just purchase from them. Turns out, I was wrong! There was only ONE place that sell drinks and we had to queue for a long time. So, I decide to get the drinks while Amelia queued for food.

The 'best' thing about this drink stalls is that there are about 5 to 6 different lines with three different banners and only one stated the word 'drinks'. The others mentioned 'merchandise' and other items which I can't remember but people were still selling drinks there so I just queued up at any of those line. However, while almost reaching the counter, I heard the seller mentioned that they only sell non-chilled drinks at their stall which is those fruity juice in a bag. If we want to buy chilled drinks, we have to line up at the other counter. Most of the people were quite upset due to the long line, hot weather and along with the lack of clear instructions and signage.

If they were to monopolize on selling the drinks, it would be better to place a few stalls around the festival grounds so that people have easy access to drinks and not queue at one spot only. The thing is, the drinks seller can't even churn out the amount of drinks at the pace of people are lining up. Some had to wait for more than while waiting for the chilled drinks to arrive and even then, the drinks are not really cold :(

Another notable thing is the glass bottles that is used for the drinks can be recycled but on the festival grounds, only black trash bag were seen so all the rubbish goes there and it minimizes the effort for people to recycle.

Enough of talking about the bad organizing of the drink stalls. Luckily for me, I decided to get a couple of bottles at one go so we don't have to queue up for drinks again. The festival was full of tantalizing food and it was so hard to choose especially with over 100 food stalls!

 photo DSC_6256-2.jpg
 photo DSC_6180-2.jpg
 photo DSC_6210-2.jpg
There were so many kinds of dessert and pasties like cronuts, brownies in a cone, potted ice cream that looks really appetizing but I couldn't just buy all of it. The weather was really hot as well so I did not have much cravings for cakes or desserts that are too filling.

 photo DSC_6192-2.jpg
Artisan peanut butter were sold as well. As I am not a huge fan of peanut butter, I had a sample which tasted quite good due as they mixed it with other flavours like kaya, chocolate etc.

 photo DSC_6187-2.jpg
Lekor is a must have!

There were a couple of BBQ stalls which look really appetizing! But due to the heat, I really wanted something that is more refreshing. It would be better to attend the food festival in the evening but I had something on so I couldn't stay long. It was raining in the evening as well so I was quite lucky to avoid the downpour but had to endure the heat!

 photo DSC_6171-2.jpg
 photo DSC_6240-2.jpg
What I had was nachos, lekor, a sandwich from #NamjaKitchen and coconut ice cream. The queue for the coconut ice cream was long but it was worth the wait! I definitely felt more refreshed after having the coconut ice cream. Not to mention, they gave out free coconut juice while we were in line :D As I had prior engagement to attend to, I left the festival ground around 1.30pm.

Overall, Foodgasm Fest has a great selection of food but can be improved in terms of drinks and parking arrangements. Perhaps they can hold it in a bigger venue with ample parking space in the near future that won't disrupt the traffic in the residential area.
