NYE Dinner At Signature, The Roof!

Romantic Restaurant in Malaysia
Malaysia Food Blogger

I had the opportunity to review the dinner set for NYE at Signature The Roof at First Avenue Bandar Utama. Knowing myself, I usually don't do food review unless I have faith in their food. I knew the food at Signature The Roof is amazing, thus, I can't say no when I was approached. Plus, I kind of grabbed the opportunity to set a date night with my partner. It was time to treat my boyfriend to a great meal along with a beautiful view.

In a gist, as expected, the food were delicious. To my surprise, the mains were in big portions and filling. Overall, the food are definitely worth bringing your love ones there for NYE dinner. It's RM190++ per pax with buffet assortment, including appetizer, turkey carving, fresh seafood, desserts, and one choice of main. Thus, what I had the other day was a 3 course meal, while the NYE dinner will be a buffet spread! Additionally, Stratosphere at The Roof, Asia's 1st grassed helipad bar, is having The Ultimate NYE Countdown, they have one of the best views for Fireworks! After your meal, you can just walk over for the celebration as the dinner package comes with complimentary entry and 1 drink!

A Precious Gift From L'OCCITANE & PIERRE HERMÉ This Christmas!

Omgosh, I can't help it. They are too beautiful! From the box to the packaging of the products, truly luxurious looking little things. However, the scent itself are rather distinctive, it's either love or hate it. Thus, it's probably tough to gift them for Christmas. It's better to just buy them to pamper yourself. With that said, here are the two limited edition products that I received - Jasmin Immortelle Neroli handcream (30ml, RM41) and Pamplemousse Rhubarbe EDT (75ml, RM275).

Indeed Laboratories Hydraluron Mega Moisture Trio [Review]

First of all, I think the packaging looks simple and pretty. It's great. However, I can't fully rave them as my absolute favourite products, probably because the products are gel based and my skin is not quite friendly towards gel products even though it's made to quench my parched skin.

Indeed Laboratories are products exclusively sold at selected Watsons in Malaysia and they are paraben free, fragrance free, colourants free, and sulphates free. The products are not tested on animals too. They do have a range of products that targets various skin concerns, I suggest that you get to the counter at Watsons and check them out yourself because Malaysia did not bring in all of the available products presented on their website and social media pages.

Now, the Hydraluron Mega Moisture Trio targets dehydrated and dry skin. It claims to have five scientifically proven ingredients that provides instant and sustainable moisture, mainly the famous Hyaluronic Acid, allows you to retain x1000 times its weight in water within the skin. It's meant to make your skin feel softer, more supple and radiantly glowing.

My Christmas & New Year Fashion Haul!

I'm blessed to have this opportunity to collaborate with for my Christmas and New Year outfits! Don't worry, they are all very wearable even on normal days. Nothing too crazy or costumey. My fashion style is very simple and easy, I personally believe in wearing clothes that makes you comfortable. I hardly go all out in accessories, even though I do have tons of it in my collection. 

I managed to pick out a shirt, skirt, dress, coat, and a pair of shoes within the budget of RM400. I could have more in my cart if I didn't had the wanting for a fabulous brown coat that cost me half of my budget. Judge me all you want, I probably won't wear it in Malaysia because the weather is just way too hot but hey, a girls got to get what she wants and I definitely did not regret being a proud owner of this good looking Burberry inspired coat! I'm a happy girl!

A Moment With Paris Hilton & Her Anniversary Edition For Women Fragrance

Paris Hilton and Malaysia Top 10 Female blogger

It was a pleasure to meet fashion icon Paris Hilton in person. It was definitely an eye opener, she's actually pretty smart. I was mainly intrigued by the way she handles herself as well as by the way she markets herself and her brand. It was an inspiring moment to see how she made a name for herself and how she keeps her life balanced in the midst of her hectic lifestyle. 

Paris Hilton Limited Anniversary Edition for Women fragrance

The interview was mainly to celebrate her milestone unveiling Paris Hilton Limited Anniversary Edition for Women fragrance line's 10 year anniversary. The fragrance embodies Hilton's original essence with an intensified, more concentrated version of her signature scent, Paris Hilton for Women, which continues to be a favourite and best seller around the world. 

Check out the interview session with her...

RoLeaf - This is how I like my Premium Tea.

I go both ways, I love coffee but I also love a good cup of tea. I usually opt for tea when I'm full, on diet, or when I feel like coffee is a little too rich for that moment in life. It's amazing because unlike coffee, I don't feel any guilt from drinking too much of it. It's the type of beverage that I can indulge in over a long conversation or the times when I just want to sit back and unwind. 

I'm not very particular about my tea, however, I know I'm pretty classic. I believe I prefer simpler taste when it comes to tea, mainly the usual Japanese Green Tea, Genmai Cha, Jasmine, Black, Oolong, Ceylon, and etc. Nothing too floral and nothing too colourful. I love the scent and the looks of the floral teas but definitely not consuming it, eg: Rose, Lavender (omgosh, I cannot), and etc. Yeah, I'm kinda weird that way.

Here's a brief review on Babyfoot, super brief thoughts about Dotfree, and a long-ass hype about Purevivi!

I was invited by Watsons to attend an introduction on TokyoNinki products, which includes Baby Foot peel foot mask, Dotfree skincare, and Purevivi Cleansing Lotion. It was also my first time in Ossoto Recreational Hub, finally, I've been wanting to see what's all they hype about this 24-hour place. Pretty cool but I think it's more fun when you have your girls with you hanging around this place.

Anyway, after trying all three brands. From the title, you clearly know which easily became my favourite and I think it will stay a favourite for a very long time. The rest were just so-so to me.

My First Dior!

Please excuse me while I scream and dance to my VERY FIRST DIOR! Just like your first kiss, it's a very big moment of my life to own my very first Dior item. Gosh, where do I begin. Heart racing, loud breathing, as if I was meeting the love of my life. Of course, Dior don't stand a chance against the current man in my life but the excitement was real. And oh, I probably wasn't thinking straight but I actually got myself two of the same but of different colour item. Yes, I've been using both the products and loving it!

Frank Salon Ep.5: When Grey Actually Matters...

Malaysia Top 10 Female blogger

If you have been following me on Instagram, you would probably know that this post is totally overdue. Though, I still want to give this hair colour a shoutout because it definitely, yet surprisingly made me look so much younger. Funny how things work out right, it's grey and famously known as the granny hair trend but totally turned out a direct opposite for me. I looked freaking Asian (in a pretty way) and it somewhat took 5 years off me. Not that I'm complaining, I actually kinda miss this hair, mainly it's also easier to maintain.

Shiseido 2015 Autumn/Winter Makeup Collection And Look!

Malaysia Top 10 Female Blogger

I'm absolutely digging the Fall look. There's something about the Fall season that attracts me. Probably it's a step closer to the holiday season as well as the gradual yet beautiful change in fashion and makeup trends. 

For Shiseido, 2015 Autumn/Winter is all about the lashes. Getting that deep black voluminous lashes while pairing it with a dark lippie totally screams effortlessly chic!

Please Donate Your Unwanted Bras, You Don't Need Them But Others Do.

Have old bras that don't fit or just don't wear anymore? Great! Do drop by in one of the Neubodi specialty store near you to drop them off in the prepared Bra Bin. Don't trash them out because Neubodi's Bra Drive Campaign helps the women community in Nepal, India and Cambodia to improve their subpar living conditions. These trafficked women are able to make 5 times their minimum wages when they sell your donated bras in the second-hand clothing market, as bras are considered as luxury items and they are inaccessible within these regions.

Personally, since the Neubodi Bra Drive started some time ago, I've always kept my unwanted bras aside just so that I can finally put them all into these Bra Bins. I even had a friend who passed me her old bra months ago (when she was cleaning out her closet) just for this campaign!

[New] SK-II Enamel Radiant Cream Compact Foundation with Artisan Perfecting Brush

I've died and gone to compact heaven! Have you seen this? My heart literally stopped for a moment, I had to remind myself to breathe. 

SK-II recently launched the new Enamel Radiant Cream Compact Foundation and the Artisan Perfecting Brush. It's made to provide moist radiant skin while achieving full coverage. 

Beautiful Eyebrows Are 3 Dimensional

Of all parts of the face, eyebrows have the power to express a different and new impression. All you've got to do is to give them shape and define them to give them the power to express. Shu Uemura's Shu Atelier newly defines natural eyebrows towards a fresh and exciting direction, it's 3D Brow Styling that provides natural volume and shadow to the brows. 

We all know how famous is Shu Uemura's Hard Formula Eyebrow Pencil. It's definitely one of the best with its unique naginata-shaped tip, making drawing extremely precise. Plus, it takes a certain technique to sharpen these babies, as shown below.

Miss Hana Eyeliner in Choco Brown [Review]

This eyeliner was once raved by many beauty bloggers and at the same time, I had friends telling me that it's not as great as claimed. Thus, when they emailed me to try this out, I went meh... However, I've been really into matte brown liners lately because it oozes a more natural look than black. During the summer, I've been rocking really natural, minimal makeup all season. Not like Malaysia goes through four seasons but I just wanted to be somewhat in trend. Plus, since the beginning of 2015, all brands seem to be moving towards the whole dewy face Korean look. It focuses more on the skin texture and very basic eye looks. Thus, the whole brown eyeliner phase.

#OOTD: Bold Blue Cut-Out

This outfit is definitely bolder than what I usually wear because it has way too many cut-outs. Don't believe me, wait till you check out the back. It's.... bare... Lols. Thanks to Nivea Firming and Whitening Serum range, bare-back dresses just look extra attractive these days. This is a really pretty dress, super airy, suitable for Malaysia's hot and humid weather. Also, because it's such a flowy outfit, you can eat comfortably without worrying in showing too much tummy. So much win.

Get That Immediate Facial Lift & Rejuvenation With Pelleve Treatment [Review]

If you are looking for a treatment that's quick, painless, and almost immediate result, you should really try Pelleve non surgical facial rejuvenation treatment. It's meant to give that immediate slight lifting to the skin as well as radiance that we all seek. In a long run, it suppose to help in reducing wrinkle and fine lines. 

My aim undergoing this treatment is to reduce the serious line under my eyes because they mentioned that this treatment's tool is small enough to work around the eye area. Those lines are really annoying me especially when I put on makeup. I can't really apply any concealer or powder on my under eyes, it will make them look even more obvious. My secondary objective is to boost my skin's radiance, since I'm fair, a lot of times I can look really pale, which is not quite flattering on screen. 

Learn more about Pelleve by watching this video.

Deep Layer - 5 Step System Treatment For High Damage Hair [Review]

Hair treatment in malaysia

I think a lot of you might know that I'm quite crazy with my hair. I'm blessed to have the opportunity to change my hairstyles as often as I want. Even though, I'm a beauty blogger, in reality, I'm still a typical lazy girl when it comes to maintaining my hair. At most, my responsibility towards my hair is to keep it clean, not smell, and try to give it nutrient with mask, conditioner, and oils. I said try. 

MoltoBene invited me to try their latest in salon use and home care Deep Layer System Treatment to bring life back to my hair, internally and externally. The results were absolutely delightful. I felt like flipping my beautiful hair all day long, and I can get away with that because I'm a girl.

A new highlight this year for the Sulwhasoo Charity Quilt initiative is the Instagram campaign, encouraging all Instagram users to post a #SWSSharetheWarmth selfie.

A Beauty Day Out With Beauty Guide & The Butterfly Project

Malaysia's Top 10 Female Bloggers

As a lady, I personally do believe in having a day off just to pamper yourself. Although I prefer to spoil myself alone because it's my way of temporarily pulling away from the extroverted side of me to recharge, I do like spending girly moments like this with a few of my best girl friends. It helps you to reconnect and strengthen that sisterhood bond. Keep your girls close because trust me, you'll need your girl friends around someday.

Beauty Guide

As a blogger, well okay, I had my beauty day out with Beauty Guide and a beautiful bunch of beauty bloggers from The Butterfly Project. We exercised, cleared bushes, full body massage, amazing food, and beautified our toe nails! Oh yes, we had a productive day.

Cellnique Reversal 24 Therapy Treatment [Review]

Three years ago, I was sitting on the same white chair, talking about my skin condition to another lady from Cellnique boutique in Bandar Botanic Klang. I took a journey down memory lane, just to remind myself how did I felt about my previous treatment by them. Goodness, my review kinda sucked back then. However, one thing I remembered was that I actually paid to go back there for a few more sessions and this can only mean that I actually did like the way they handled my face. Otherwise, I wouldn't have forked money to buy their products and return for another facial session. 

Two months ago, I rekindled my joy of being in this place, reminding myself why I actually did and actually still do like getting my facial from Cellnique Bandar Botanic Klang branch. It is, to my opinion, one of the very few great places in Klang to get your monthly facial done because the therapist are really good at what they do.

Chill, Your On-Demand Chauffeured Service Driver Was Probably Just Frustrated At Himself.

I'm a driver. Well, not in this Jaguar of course, I'd probably be too scared to even accelerate it. What I meant is that I drive everywhere and this will be the very first time I grab a car to an event as near as Summit USJ. 

I was blessed with the opportunity to enjoy a luxurious ride all thanks to GrabCar! It was in conjunction with the month of Merdeka, GrabCar was offering a month-long 31% promotion for all GrabCar rides, this made it the most affordable ride in town last August. Additionally, GrabCar was also rewarding its riders with a chance to ride in luxury and comfort with one of their luxury cars for absolutely FREE! 

Though, I wouldn't exactly say that I had the best GrabCar experience. There were some hiccups.

HA Hydrating System Facial At Bella [Review]

I love facials. Scratch that, I love taking some time of my hectic schedule to be pampered in a beauty salon. I appreciate quiet venue when getting my facials or body massages, this is crucial because the whole point of this is to truly relax and unwind. I'd rather pay a little extra for a better venue and friendly staff than stressing over unnecessary matters later. So ladies, pick your salons wisely.

I'm Sorry But First Impression Still Matters And Why You Should Care On How You Look Outwardly...

I'm not here to burst bubbles but we all know the truth is that human do still care about first impressions. Even after all that Meghan Trainer body image song, it still boils down to how we portray ourselves to others in a glance because hey, ain't everyone got time to sit down and have a deep conversation to get to know you better. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about size here. I'm talking about how well you clean up, your posture, and the way to talk. I remember my mom always tell me to iron my clothes before I wear them out, to stand up straight, to close my legs when I stand, and to not laugh like a crazy woman with my mouth wide open... ermm.. I'm still working on that last one. I didn't really get it when I was younger, I always thought it was annoying and I should be able to do what I like and people should just like me for who I am. 

It's true, people should like you for who you are! But being a woman in the real world is a task, we've got to look confident while exuding poise, and these can happen to all girls if most of us believe we can by starting with spending the extra effort to take care on how you look physically. By knowing that you look good, you'll feel great! 

A little mascara makes you look a whole lot more awake, a little blusher oozes a healthy flush, the right red lipstick completes your entire look, and a little lotion every day after shower will keep your skin moisturised and soft. All these goes hand-in-hand with your dressing too!

GOOD VIBRATIONS - Pobling Mini Ion Applicator [Review]

Sometimes, hands are not enough, we need vibrations... Oh... what a weird way to start a blogpost. LOLS! Keep your thoughts clean people! Though, I kid you not. When it comes to beauty, we'll always want more and thanks to the advancement of technology, we no longer just relying on skincare products, beauty gadgets are gaining popularity among beauty junkies. Anything that claims to be of help to enhance our skin condition, we'll try.

The science behind vibration...

It might sound zany but apparently there are some serious science behind the idea of vibrations being good for the skin. In the 1960s, Russians discovered that vibration training cause muscles to contract 30 to 50 times per second. Contraction helps to increase blood circulation, transporting oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, which helps with anti-ageing as it's a workout that can boost the production of human growth hormone. In layman's term, it has the potential to rejuvenate our skin, just like how we feel after a good workout session, we feel supercharged! It's the same concept!

It's also found that vibration can contribute to long term anti-ageing by preparing the skin to absorb topically applied lotions and potions because anything that warms up the skin and gets the blood closer to the surface will enable molecules in serums and moisturisers to penetrate more effectively. Interesting, isn't it?!

We Are Young Adults, We Drink Water When We Gather & Why You Totally Should Too! [Spritzer Hot & Warm Mini Dispenser Giveaway!]

Thank God for unimates! They are the ones that knows and accepts you for all your crap. Watching each other grow for that short 3-4 years was definitely an interesting journey for me. My life wouldn't be the same without the friends I had in my Foundation and Degree years, they just know how to brighten up a gloomy day!

I couldn't believe that it's been 7 years since we knew each other! It's crazy how much "those were the days..." we now use everytime we catch up. 

"Remember, we used to karaoke every week after class?"
"I still remember we used to FIFA the whole night till morning and order the best burger nearby when we were hungry."
"We once could stay up 24-h just to finish our assignments and still can go to class the next day. Ohmygosh, those were the days when we had the energy."

Truly, it's so different now. As we grew older, of course, we are much wiser now (hopefully), we realised that we are really not that young anymore. Being in our mid-20s, sleep deprivation is a sin now and long gone the days where we could go living out unhealthy lifestyles. This includes levelling up our water intake by choosing to drink more water over any other 'party' or 'gathering' drinks especially those sweet, fizzy ones. 

"Water makes up about two thirds of who we are and influences 100% of the processes in our body", says hydration expert Doug Casa, PhD. Thus, drinking enough water should naturally make us feel better. Here are a few reasons why you should choose to hydrate yourself with water: 

#1 It helps with losing weight
When you drink water before a meal, it makes you feel full and possibly boost metabolism too. Plus, it's also common for us to mistake thirst for hunger. Thus, the next time when you feel fatigued or sluggish, some H2O might just help to perk you up. 

#2 Good for your digestion
Put on your glasses as I'm going to be a little scientific here - in the large intestine, water binds with fibre to increase the bulk of the stools, reduce transit time and make elimination easier. When you don't drink enough water, the colon pulls water from stools, increasing your risk of constipation. #FACT

#3 May protect you from some types of cancer
It's been studied that the greater the fluid intake (results more significant with water), the lower the chances of getting bladder cancer because it's possible that urinating more frequently prevents the buildup of bladder carcinogens. Also, keeping yourself hydrated may also reduce the risk of colon cancer and breast cancer. 

#4 It improves mood and alertness
Oh yes, it refreshes us and improves our state of mind! Feeling tired is one of the first signs of dehydration, thus filling up on H2O could zap the sleepiness away!

#5 Helps you look good!
Of course, being a beauty blogger, how can I not say this. Water helps to improve skin complexion. We've read so much about this. Water moisturises your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. It even helps to reduce wrinkles, it's the best anti-ageing treatment around!

There are so many more reasons why you should drink more water, but first read on further to find out how you can win yourself your very own Spritzer Hot and Warm Mini Dispenser
