Japanese women always have porcelain fair skin and recently I attended the Eversoft Skinz UV White Get Together event that was held in Rondaevoo, Ativo Plaza to learn more on the Japanese skincare ritual!

The setup of the event was awesome where each table was filled with the latest Eversoft Skinz UV White range for us to test! Event emcee, Mei Sze kicked started the event with some welcome remarks and then the Product Manager for Eversoft Skinz, Alexiss Ng talked about the benefits of their latest range of product.

The secret behind this radiant Japanese beauty lies in a traditional skincare ritual that has been perfected over generations. Eversoft Skinz UV White uses natural Japanese ingredients which embraces the Japanese 5-Step skincare ritual for radiant whitening of skin.

It has three key benefits which is advanced whitening, anti-tyrosinase, and active skin repair. This advance Japanese formulation includes:

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.

 photo ComedyNight2.jpg
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_6211-2.jpg
 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.

 photo DSC_6214-2.jpg
 photo DSC_6178-2.jpg
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!

 photo DSC_6216-2.jpg
 photo DSC_6229-2.jpg
 photo DSC_6230-2.jpg
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.

John Ross Jr. - Traditional Scottish Smoked Scottish Salmon


 photo DSC_5769-2.jpg
Recently, I was invited to a cafe in Damansara Perdana called The Curious Goat where I got to taste traditional Scottish smoked salmon by the brand John Ross Jr. (Aberdeen) Ltd, one of the most respected purveyors of premium smoked salmon in the UK. John Ross Jr. supplies smoked salmon to The Curious Goat and therefore, they decided to hold the tasting session there! It is a suitable place as well due to the cosy environment and laid-back atmosphere.

 photo DSC_5806-2.jpg
John Ross Jr. opened its door in 1857 where they have produced Scottish Smoked Salmon in the truly traditional way. Using red bricks kilns dating back to the 19th century, the master smoker hangs the salmon over smoldering fires of oak-chippings. This time-honoured and rare cold smoking method produces the most succulent flavour and tender texture of smoke salmon. 

John Ross Jr. salmon are locally sourced from the cold clear waters of Scotland, and they contain no artificial flavourings or preservatives. It is packed with goodness, including omega 3 fatty acids that is beneficial in maintaining a healthy heart.

With their strong traditional values, John Ross Jr. has won many awards and they are a Royal Warrant Holder, where they supply their smoked salmon to Her Majesty, The Queen and the Royal Family for over 25 years!

 photo DSC_5802-2.jpg
The Curious Goat served us appetizer while preparing the Scottish Smoked Salmon!

 photo DSC_5833-2.jpg
We were served a platter of smoked salmon which consists of Traditional Smoked Salmon with Cracked Black Pepper for those who prefer a kick of flavour, Whisky Smoked Salmon that is infused with Balvine Whisky to bring a rounded sweetness, and Sliced Tea Smoked Salmon that is cold smoked using the Chinese Tea - Lapsang Souchong (立山小種) which is renowned for its aromatic smokey flavour.

 photo DSC_5823-2.jpg
We also had Dill Sauce by CoIn Valley and Inverawe Hot Banana Chutney sauce to pair with the salmon. I must say I prefer the Dill Sauce as its flavour specially produced as an accompaniment with salmon!

 photo DSC_5856-2.jpg
After that, we were also presented with another dish which consists of the Curious Goat's Panini that is topped with cream cheese & John Ross Jr. Classic Smoked Salmon. Next to it was the Grilled Mozzarella Cheese Sandwich stuffed with chicken and served with salad on the side. 


 photo DSC_5786-2.jpg
After our delicious meal, we enjoyed the coffee and dessert served by The Curious Goat which I will blog about it on a separate post.

John Ross Jr. Traditional Smoked Salmon is available at BEN's Independent Grocer in Publika and also Jaya Grocer outlets. For more information, visit John Ross Jr.'s:

[Review] Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Review


 photo DSC_6005-2.jpg
Recently, I have been introduced to the new Maybelline range of mascara which is The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara.

 photo DSC_6097-2.jpg
This new mascara is the first mascara with two brushes - 1 big brush and 1 small brush that has multiple usage!

 photo DSC_6009-2.jpg
The big brush is mainly used on the upper lashes where it is to create volume and a more dramatic effect on the eyes.

 photo DSC_6011-2.jpg
The smaller brush is to have a better application at areas like the lower lashes, inner and outer corner of the lashes where the big brush can't reach as much.

 photo DSC_6020-2.jpg
I love how the mascara applies easily onto my lashes. Some of the mascara that I have used before tend to get very clumpy which makes my eye feel uncomfortable due to the heavy feeling it gives and also smudges easily, which is why I choose to forgo mascara as part of my make up routine. However, with the Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara, it makes my eyes look bigger and livelier. Even after 3 coats of application, the mascara feels very lightweight on my eyes which I love!

I have created 2 different looks with Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara where it is suitable for day and night!

 photo DSC_6071-2.jpg
Look 1
A natural makeup look by just applying mascara and no eyeliner. This look is suitable for those who are just started to use makeup where if you're not sure how to use liquid eyeliner yet, mascara is definitely a good way to make your eyes stand out! It also creates a soft and feminine image. If you think by just applying mascara is not enough, you can apply eyeshadow to create more depth. Mascara and eyeshadow gives a clean finish to the eye makeup that creates a simple yet polished look. Of course, not forgetting your lip gloss or pink lipstick to complete the makeup!

 photo DSC_6085-2.jpg
Look 2
A more dramatic effect is by drawing a cat eye using the eyeliner before applying mascara. This look is great for a night out or dinner event. Of course, you can add in darker colours of eyeshadow and blend accordingly to bring more attention to the eyes. About 3 to 5 coats of Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara will be enough to make your lashes stay!

 photo DSC_6096-2.jpg
Left - Applied with Maybelline The Falsies Big Eye Mascara
Right - No mascara applied

It might be hard to see the effect of top lashes due to the eyeliner but the bottom lashes that is applied with mascara definitely makes the left side look bigger compared to the right side! Overall, I love the big eyes effect that this mascara gives but it has the tendency to have clumps after a few coats. However, I find it avoidable when I apply the mascara at a much speedier pace! :D

Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara retails at RM45.90 and is sold at major pharmacies! For more information, visit Maybelline's Malaysia:
