Don't want to be a wall hugger? Powerbank is your solution.

What a tongue twister, too much 'Po' in one title. Anyway, MIPOW is a rather new brand specialises on phone accessories such as powerbanks, bluetooth headsets, speaker and etc. Here I have the Power Cube 7800, a compact and exquisite powerbank with two USB output ports (1A and 2.4A) to charge most mobile devices as well as tablets and a Micro USB input port to recharge the powerbank.

A Morning Well Spent At Panasonic Beauty Cafe!

Coffee Art

It was certainly an interesting morning. Being welcomed to a beauty cafe was definitely something I can get used to. It wasn't just the coffee, it was the excitement of being surrounded by so many stylish gadgets that were designed to make women's busy lifestyle a lot easier. 

The Panasonic Beauty concept is all about convenience and easy-to-use. For a contemporary savvy working lady like me who constantly need to look good, a little help from our friendly technology to achieve my best look in a short period of time is something I can't say no to.

Systema Spiral 0.02mm Toothbrush [Review]

I'm not one of those hygiene freaks that changes their toothbrush every three months. Yeah, I know, it's quite basic but I don't have bacteria in your mouth kinda OCD. I've always used a toothbrush till the bristles goes out of shape, that's when I will change my toothbrush.

[JQTalks Vietnam] Old Town, Hanoi

Old Quarter Hanoi
Old Quarter Hanoi

Also known as Old Quarter, this is one town you must see, eat and shop while visiting Hanoi. Dating back to the 13th century, it was all about specialised trade guilds each occupying different streets. Now, it's a maze of streets for tourist to walk around and get lost. How fun is that?!

Old Town can be quite an exhausting place. Not just because it's huge, consisting mainly of 36 old similar-looking streets, but it's also filled with locals, tourist, cars, trishaw, electric taxi, bicycle, motors, motors and more motors. Don't be offended if you get honked, it's just their way of saying 'Get the hell out of my road, b***h'... Lols kidding, them honking is considered polite to make you aware of their existence and to make way for them.

Do You Suffer From Premature Ejaculation?

Premature Ejaculation
Okay, I'm definitely not here to answer all your questions about premature ejaculation (PE) neither am I here to help you figure out if you have this condition or not but I have someone who can help you figure all this out. A. Menarini (Malaysia) recently launched BE BRAVE campaign to create awareness among couples about PE and how it's actually a treatable condition. 

No one really speaks about this issue and some may even feel held back when it comes to seeking advice from professionals for it is still quite a taboo topic in Malaysia. If you are wondering, PE occurs when a man ejaculates with little sexual stimulation and before the man wishes. This can lead to a decrease in sexual satisfaction and quality of life for men and their partners.

[JQTalks Vietnam] Tam Coc Wharf, Ninh Binh

Tam Coc Wharf, Ninh Binh

If you are touring Hanoi, Tam Coc Wharf is one destination you won't want to miss because how often you get to sit on a tiny boat with someone paddling (with their feet) along the streams of Ngo Dong River while you enjoy a magnificent view of sky-high karst towers, paddy fields and caves. 

Personally, June is not the best time for your to visit this place. It was blazing hot, I can feel myself burning from head to toe. I would suggest visiting around Autumn or almost to Winter. The cool breeze + view = Magnificent.

It was a little bloggers gathering, introducing to us more about the few new products in the market by dr. brandt. Personally, this is my first time learning about this brand and I haven't really fully test any of their products before, so I will just tell you my first impression about some of these products.

Hair Dye DIY [Tutorial]

Anyeong! I have a current obsession with snapbacks. I don't know why but everytime I wear them like some hip hop, yo yo yo boys do, I think I look super chillax Korean. Oh, of course, adding the peace sign along with sepet eyes makes it even more authentic. 

Since my hair has grown out quite long, I've been wanting to dye them lighter for the longest time. At times I do cut my own hair, mainly just my fringe, but I've never dyed my own hair before. To be exact, I have three boxes of DIY hair dyes in my closet and I never had the courage to do it myself until recently, I screwed all my work and take time off to just do this shit.

Asian Spicy Dried Prawns Meaty Pasta with Edamame [Recipe + Photos]

When I say I cook, you can trust I always take the easiest way out. I may not be the neatest in the kitchen but shortcuts is the way to go. So for me to start from scratch and winging my own recipe is quite an accomplishment and I want to brag about it here :D 

If you are planning to try this recipe, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did because they are all my favourite ingredients, pretty much. Also, I didn't really measure how much I put in for what, as said I kinda winged it. Though, I will still give a rough estimation if you're anal about measurements.

Younger, Again.

Beauty Blogger event

Age catches up pretty quickly without us even realising it. Stopping time would be one superpower that most of us yearn for, if they really exist and available to everyone. Since we can't buy time-stopping superpowers, I guess we'll just have to deal with it other ways.

Being in the beauty industry for so long, I've already accepted the fact that skincare products you use at home is just not enough. They are great for maintenance but there are just some things you'll need to visit beauty salons, for example a complete and detailed extraction, machines that you clearly don't own it in your house and of course, a pair of hands that aren't your own so that you can just relax from your hectic life.

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal [Review]

One of the blackest-black mechanical pencil eyeliner I've ever used but it's also one of the worst-smudging eyeliner I've ever used. To be fair, most pencil/kohl liners don't have very staying power and this is just one of them.

Shu Uemura The Lightbulb UV Compact Foundation [Review]

I'm surprised that this have not been hyped at all within the beauty community. I can honestly say that this is one of the best high-end compact foundation that I've ever used. I truly like this from the bottom of my heart. Even though it's cute as a pebble, I can't say I like the bulky-ness of this packaging. Plus, it's a little plastic-y but still quite sturdy while handling it. Other than that, it's definitely a lazy day holy grail product.
