#TehChamLee's Namecards & Postcards Has Arrive!!


Omgosh! They are finally here! We are so excited that we finally have a legit namecard for our brand and also an adorable postcard to send out as thank you cards whenever we need them. 

Truly, we couldn't be happier of how this turned out and was blessed enough to be able to collaborate with The Techy Hub and The Inkredibles to produce such adorable prints. They designed it all from scratch and throughout the designing stage, the PIC have constant communication with me. Keep updating me with the latest design update, making sure we were happy with it or to check if we have any input. Even till the test print, they kept us updated with the material and the quality of the colours. 

Extremely patient with all our request and changes, service top notch with quality prints. I truly highly recommend them if you are looking for someone to do some designing and printing. Charges do check with them as it depends on your requests as well.

Daegwallyeong Sky Ranch Pyeong Chang \\ Must Do In Gangwon Province!


I really do like this place. It's unfortunate that it was crazy cold during winter and the snow was becoming ice, making it rather dangerous to walk on. I finally understood why you need proper snow/winter shoes for the season, it's not just because it looks cool but you'll really need it for functionality purposes. Sorry, a Malaysian girl like me who's pretty new at travelling is probably stating the obvious. I'm glad I actually bought a pair of good footwear just before the trip. 


Daegwallyeing Sky Ranch was established in 1974 and currently, it's sized approximately 900 million square meters. There are a number of cows, sheeps, and other animals that are usually free to roam around this huge ranch. This place is well preserved and it also produces first-class milk as well as top quality Korean beef. Some activities such as feeding the ranch animals are family friendly. I highly suggest taking the tractor wagon up to the Observatory as the view is magnificient up there. However, choose a timing when it's not too cold as the wind is a huge factor. It would probably be nice during the Summer.

NEW Physicians Formula Cushion Foundation Review [Video First Impressions!]


I love cushion foundations due to its convenience especially when it comes to travelling with it. I've pretty much been living on some of my favourite cushion foundations lately such as Dior, Laneige, Mamonde, and Missha's Natural Cover Tension Pack. Obviously when Physicians Formula mentioned that they want to send me their new cushion foundation for review, I said yes. 

I believe this is Physicians Formula's first foundation in cushion form. We can probably say FINALLY. Personally, I love their Nude Wear Blusher, PH Match Maker Lip Gloss, and Shimmer Strips Nude Palette (one of the best highlighter I've tried). However, I never had a good impression on their foundations, especially the Nude Wear Touch Of Glow Foundation, I really dislike that particular one. So this was interesting for me. 

As usual, below is my first impressions of this product in video but if you prefer reading, do scroll on further.

The Pheonix Park Ski Resort is pretty known around the world as it has been showcased in K-Dramas such as Autumn In My Heart as well as being a famous ski park for locals and international visitors.

Let Go, Bridezilla! A Bride's Horror.


Sounds familiar? Have you been a bridezilla throughout your wedding planning season? Maybe even worst, a bridezilla on your wedding day? Seems like everyone can't do what they have been requested to do and you'll have to just do everything yourself? 

I've been toying with this blogpost content in my head since getting through the wedding nitty gritty myself. I mean, comparing to some of my friends' stories, I would consider that planning my wedding was pretty chill. Of course, there were a couple of things that got me upset and why this, why that, and the whole - it's OUR wedding day, why can't we do it the way we want it... It's probably common to a lot of younger couple these days. 

If you think getting through your planning process marks the end of long-suffering, well, let me burst your bubble, the real shit happens on the wedding day because at the end of it, what happens during THE DAY is the one that matters. 

Jonlivia Hot Belt Review [Video Included]


I've probably mentioned this before, ever since my move, I've been hitting the gym and swimming quite often lately and I've also been trying to shed some fats and attempt to tone my body up. Thus, I'm glad that I'm collaborating with Jonlivia again to try out some of their new items. 

They've sent me a few things but I will review them in stages. For this blogpost, I will be reviewing the Jonlivia Hot Belt. As usual, to kick things of, you may start by watching my video as below. Otherwise, scroll on to read my thoughts on this self heating belt.

How To Get V Line Shaped Face? Try This, Maybe?

Not taking it personally but sometimes, when I receive things like this from a brand, I really don't know how I feel about it. To me, it get scary when the packaging itself is not convincing to me. The before and after is too drastic and photoshopped looking.


Still, I thought it would be fun to just give this a whirl on my YouTube Channel. ENJOY!



I personally don't think I see an immediate change but who knows, maybe if you do this often enough, it might just enhances your features a little.

Best Cleansing Oil To Try!

Youtuber lifestyle blogger

I remembered a friend asking me about makeup removers and what are the few that I would recommend. I listed down a few such as micellar (Supporting: The Saem from Althea, PureViVI, Garnier, Eversoft), balm (Supporting Banila.co), and the only oil makeup remover that I vouch for is the shu uemura cleansing oil. There's really nothing like it. It smells great and removes all your makeup at one go. The best part is, if you don't want to double cleanse, you can don't do it because it deep cleansed your skin for you.


I did a video demo on how to use them as they do have a technique of usage. Check them out!






Thanks shu uemura for the lovely gift.

[Blog Detox] My Fav Sheet Mask + Bonus!


I'm joining the Blog Detox by The Butterfly Project bandwagon for fun, at least once before my schedule goes all hectic again due to my thesis. It's time to get back to uni to get that over with, which also means I will have to split my focus for at least another 3-4 months. Oh well, life goes on, I'm almost there.

I love, love, love sheet mask. They are easy to use and super nourishing to the skin. Getting that instance radiance and hydration has never been this convenient. Plus, they are pretty reasonable. Personally I have a few favourites but usually I'll run out of that particular brand and refrain myself from purchasing them as I have other masks in my collection to try and go through.



But anyway, let me introduce you to my current favourite face mask and a little bonus, my current favourite eye mask! They are the Hada Labo Retinol Firming Mask and the Gobdigoun IL Porco Eye Patch in Gold EGF.

Not Every Hydrating Product Will Work For Your Skin Type | MAMONDE Floral Hydro Toner & Cream Review


Let's keep this review short and sweet because for me, the Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner and Cream didn't work out on my dry skin type even though it claims to provide long-lasting hydration. That's the funny thing about skincare, not every product will 100% work for you just because they tick all your face requirements checklist. It's very much trial and error. This doesn't mean that the brand is bad or all of their products don't work for you, it just means that the particular product doesn't work for you and they could possibly work for other people.

I believe these babies got a facelift and no doubt the packaging look so much better than the previous versions. It's so much younger and fresh now. I was pretty excited to try them because they smell so good and it's about time for me to switch up my skincare products. It was also unfortunate to find out that these don't work well for me. I'm going to straight into my thoughts on these products because you can find most of the generic information on these all over the internet.

Even on 11street.my, since now, Mamonde have expanded it's market presence online through 11street's site. However, to ensure it's authentic, you are advised to look out for deals listed under Mamonde Malaysia with the logo below when ordering your products.


YongPyong Resort - Dragon Peak \\ Goblin K-Drama Shooting Location \\ What To Do In Gangwon Province?


YongPyong Resort is the largest ski resort in South Korea and similarly to Phoenix Ski Park, this place will be hosting a few sporting events for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. But seriously, even if you don't ski, the Dragon Peak is one place you should really slot into your MUST VISIT list!

K-Drama Virgin: Guy Reacts To K-Drama! \\ #TehChamLee


Ever since my first visit to South Korea, I've been pretty into a lot of things Korean. From the food to their fashion style to their language. No surprise that I have my fair share of chasing after one K-drama to another and took an interest to some of the k-idols music and bands. Although, I have to admit, I'm not much into the whole K-pop scene but I definitely took interest in Korean culture in general. 

My husband on the other than, have no clue why I'm occasionally head over heels on K-drama. Food he can understand because they technically goes in and out the same passageway as Malaysian food, K-dramas on the other hand air series that are in a completely foreign language that most Malaysians don't comprehend a single word, so why the fuss? That's until he sat down and watch an episode of popular K-Drama, Goblin, with me. 




Hope you enjoy and do support us on our page and channel!

Saimdang K-Drama Shooting Location - Ojukheon & Seongyojang \\ What To Do In Gangwon Province?

what to do in gangwon province

I have to admit, other than being in Winter and having the opportunity to visit Goblin's Shooting location, Ojukheon and Seongyojang were the other two places that I was quite stoked on visiting as back then, I was just starting on watching Saimdang K-Drama. There something about visiting the places you've watched on shows or movies, I quite like it. Plus, this place is filled with historical memoirs of famous Korean figures. Let's start!

Here's A Good Western Restaurant In Gangneung, Gangwon, Korea!


If you are looking for a break from the usual Korean food while travelling around Gangwon Province, you can try this western place that serves your usual fish and chips, pizzas, fries and even craft beers! 

Known as Budnamu Brewery, this restaurant is located in Gangneung city, served your favourites Italian-western food. Of course, when visiting Korea, the most important thing is to actually enjoy their local specialties but after a while, I'm sure you'll get bored of the delicious BBQs and the stews, and you'll want something familiar. So, it's always good to know a few western restaurants around.

POWDER LIPPIE?! DIOR Rouge Gradient Lip Shadow Duo Review \\ JQLeeJQ


I received this ages ago and have been holding this off my lips specifically to do a first impressions video on my YouTube channel. Finally found the time to do it and here's the review!

I've seen a couple of powder lip products in the market but mostly are from a Korean brand. It was pretty trendy a while back but I never really thought about trying it as I have pretty dry lips and I have a gut feeling that it would be too drying for my lips.

So when DIOR sent me their new Spring Collection items and it includes this DIOR Rouge Gradient Lip Shadow Duo in Red, it is the perfect time to give the whole powder lippie trend a test.


As usual, video review is as below or if you prefer to read, scroll on further for my written thoughts about this product.

Best Healthy HanJeongSik (Korean Set Meal) In Gangwon Province, Korea!

healthy organic vegetarian

On my second day of Gangwon-do, Korea trip, I had the opportunity to try out one of the most authentic Korean Set Meal called Hanjeongsik. This kind of spread is usually consumed by royalties in the old days where they have cold to hot dishes served. Back in the days in Korea, there's actually a specific order when eating Hanjeongsik but these days, they'll usually just serve all at once. I prefer it this way too. 

Best place to eat when in Gangwon Province, Korea

The other great part about having this meal is also the location of this place. The restaurant name SeoJiChoGaTeul, is little house located in Gangneung. Surrounding the house is a beautiful open area filled with trees, river, and a magnificient view of hills and mountains.

Sol Beach Hotel & Resort in Gangwon Review

hotel in korea, 5 star

The first and second night in Gangwon, Korea, I was pampered with such a luxurious hotel. The SamCheok Sol Beach Hotel and Resort is huge and really well maintained. It's unfortunate that I didn't have the time to spend a day chilling around the hotel, that would have been amazing because they have so many areas that you can walk around and enjoy the view of the ocean. I don't have the pictures but it's in my video, I do recommend visiting the Santorini park here during the day. 



As for my hotel room, I was staying in a Superior Double room with a view facing the nearby beach that's unfortunately not connected to the hotel for safety purposes.

Cleansers That Do More [Review & Video Demo]


Eversoft have been trying to rebrand themselves into a younger brand for sometime now and from what I can see, they are slowly coming up with more trendy products that the younger generation are into these days.

The two new products that they sent to me to try are the Eversoft 100% Organic Tomato Micellar Cleansing Water and the Eversoft 100% Organic Yuzu 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner. Both formulated with Japanese Technology and ingredients, and both being paraben-free, SLS free, alcohol free, and mineral oil free. Eversoft claims that the reason why they use organic plant actives because it enhances our skin's natural function and optimises skin regeneration for healthier skin. Doesn't that sounds great.

I have a video review and demo, feel free to watch them first, otherwise, as usual, scroll on for more info and written review.

My No-Frills Asian Wedding


This post is written by the groom:

My now wife and I got hitched a couple of weeks ago and looking back, it has been a breeze compared to all the scary stories that we were bombarded with the moment people heard that we were planning our wedding. “Have you searched for wedding venues? You need to book at least a year in advance leh”, “What are you wearing?”, “Are your parents agreeable?”, “Wah, so young get married already ah”, “Got money to get married or not?”, and the best question of them all, “Am I invited ah?”. Goodness me!

But one thing that I am thankful for is my gorgeous wife. Through it all, she has remained supportive and an absolute gem when it came down to decision making. She always had my back and I am thankful to God for that. 

Now for the kickass story!


It all started when we first dated. It was a straightforward, no beating round the bush kinda relationship. I asked her out on a date and she said yes. BOOM! None can resist this amazing body. I'm just kidding, it was my awesome personality that nailed it.

In one of our casual chats whilst dating, we were set in mind and heart that we would have a simple, no frills wedding. One that was small and cozy. Fast forward; friendly hug – attraction – proposal to be boyfriend and girlfriend – held hands – first kiss – first fight – first video together – got down on one knee and she said yes. HAPPILY EVER AFTER! Or at least in every other Disney movie.


But then here came the wave of “WEDDING PLANNING”. Here came the unwelcomed suggestions and ideas of what is best and how things should be done. Here came the cultural needs and practices that needed to be adhered to. Here came the “You are too young to get married la”, “Got money or not?”, “What’s the rush?”, “Have you found a venue for the wedding yet? Need to book in advance leh!”. 

The unrealistic projections of how much a wedding would and should cost was absolutely out of this world. Being Asian, the pressure of having an extravagant wedding is not a luxury, it is a necessity. However, a wise man once told me to NOT spend on the wedding but spend on the marriage. I plan to stick to that wise advice.

Keeping focused, my then fiancée and I shrugged off all comments and decided to take on the wedding planning ourselves. Our parents were the coolest people by allowing us to take control and decide on how our wedding should be like. The most important thing to us is having the blessing of our parents to have a small wedding.


Minor details aside, we decided to have our wedding at home. The idea of getting married in a cozy place with only the people closest to us made so much sense and it got us all excited because we only had to manage a small space. I kinda had an idea of how it would look like but when we were done with it, it was beyond everything I’ve imagined!

We took out our old lights from last Christmas and that became the wonderful backlight. My mum asked for our #TehChamLee logo from the videos that we do and she got it printed. She even took time to cut out the words from paper! And that became the focal point of every photo taken during the wedding. Great call mum! It was simple and very pretty. 


My cousin, Jenny, owns a party equipment shop and she sponsored all the balloons you see in this photo. We did not ask for it but she wanted to contribute something to the wedding and the balloons made so much difference to the look and feel of the wedding. Thank you so much Jenny!


My wife, Jian, found herself a simple white dress from an independent store for less than RM200. She looked super gorgeous in it! And I got myself a Silver shirt and a grey Coat from Uniqlo for less than RM300. I wore my previously owned skinny jeans because it went well with the shirt and coat. But mostly, we were going for the maximum level of comfort. You can see it from our elated faces. 


We even did the wedding car decorations ourselves! Jian got the materials and we did it together! It was really fun for us as we had the chance to spend some time together a day before the wedding. 



Then came the most important part, the guest list. We decided that the idea of a small wedding is to only have the people most important to us to be there. We wanted to have the pleasure of interacting with everyone who was at the ceremony. Goes without saying, it was our immediate families and our closest friends.

The wedding ceremony was everything I had dreamed of and more. Not that I have thought much about it but looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. The chilled environment, the laughter, the not so solemn ceremony, the Ice-cream stop on the way to the ceremony, to getting married to the most beautiful girl in the world. I am blessed beyond words.


For the rest of you out there who are considering marriage, I won’t tell you how to do it but if you are considering a no-frills wedding, by all means go for it and don’t turn back! It’s real cozy and it will damn sure save you a couple bucks for the honeymoon or that overpriced house loan.

Proverbs 18:22 “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”

Much Love, 

Dex (Super Asian)
