Summarizing My Raya and Super Junior Special Comeback

Hello guys!

It's a bit late but I would still want to wish you guys a 'Selamat Hari Raya'! How was it for you guys? As for me, I didn't travel back to my 'kampung' (mom's hometown) this year and celebrated the Eid in Kuala Lumpur instead because my grandma was here at that time. So, we had our small gathering at our aunt's house for the celebration.

11 Things You Don't Know About Me

Hello Guys!
Miss me? I've been missing in action for a few days because I was busy playing games with my brothers. That's why I tried to not start because once I start I tend to play for days (as in 24 hours is not enough sense) and it was even worse since this time it's Dota that I was playing. LOL! Anyway I finally get to tear myself away from the game for a bit so yeah I'm here to do the '11 Things You Don't Know About Me' tag that I got from a fellow blogger +Jannah Md Isa who blog at fleurnotes so check her blog out if you want :)

So here we go;

Foods That Define Hari Raya For Me.

Hello guys!

When it comes to Hari Raya, both my parent families celebrate them quite differently. My dad for example, has quite a huge family members that even now I can't remember the names of all my uncles, aunts and cousins from my dad side; but when it comes to Hari Raya it was the numbers that made it extra fun to celebrate in my late grandparent house especially when I think about how much 'duit raya' I managed to get from all of them! When Eid came and it was my dad turn to celebrate the first day of it with his family side, we will be coming to Sg.Buloh the day before to help with food preparation.

My late grandfather made the best 'Sup Kaki Lembu' or cow leg soup using the family secret recipe. I can feel how much dedication and love he had for us when I thought of the time he used to make it since it usually took him a few days to cook it to perfection. One of my favourite childhood memory during Hari Raya at my paternal grandparent home was watching my dad helping my grandfather cooking the soup. Now since they're not here in this world anymore, this food reminds me of the old days and always make me misses my late grandparent so much. Thankfully the family recipe was passed on and now during Hari Raya we make it a point to visit my aunt house just to have that taste that we miss.

Then there is also my maternal grandmother 'Ketupat Daun Palas'. Its so good that sometimes we need to be quick to eat them because it tend to ran out so fast. Hari Raya won't be complete without eating her ketupat and no matter how much we tried nobody ever managed to successfully replicate the taste. Sometimes I help her to tie on the ketupat but I never managed tie it strong enough to make sure the water doesn't seep in while too much boiling. When she's gone in the future, I will definitely miss her and her delicious ketupat and I think Hari Raya would be much duller then.

And lastly my mom's 'Lontong' especially when eating with her 'Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis' which is my all time favourite! Not just for Hari Raya Aidilfitri I will also bug her every Hari Raya Qurban to make it for me. I usually got to eat it on those two occasions only, so the rest the year always got me craving for the food. There were also a few times when I didn't get to celebrate one of those occasion and missed out on her lontong. To make it even more special, the memories of helping my mom to prepare the ingredient and to cut all the veggies and my favourite 'tempeh' into small pieces for my mom while she prepares for other things for Hari Raya makes the dish even more important to me. 

I can eat lontong for breakfast, lunch and dinner during Hari Raya and I have actually done it before. Sometimes my brothers ask if I don't get sick of it and my simple reply would be, "Never!". I don't think I'll ever get bored of eating lontong even when its not Hari Raya. My mom usually refuse to cook lontong on normal days because she said I might eat too much of it. LOL! I can't fight on that because its true!

I guess many relates to my love for Lontong since Mamee Chef has now came out with a new flavour and guess what? Its #MameeChefLontong! I first wondered if the taste will be the same but Mamee Chef and Chef Ismail managed to make it very similar to the actual dish using his top secret paste. I guess after this, my cravings for lontong will be easily solved *dance of happiness*. The Mamee Chef noodles also goes 'boing-boing' due to Art of Mee Tarik they use to make it. Topped with condiments that also comes in the package, I can enjoy eating my love Lontong in just a matter of few minutes thanks to Mamee Chef.

For those who don't get Hari Raya leave day this year, try soothing your longing with #MameeChefLontong. At least having the taste that you miss will make the Hari Raya even more bearable. Gosh, writing about this makes me crave Lontong already. I'm going to make my #MameeChefLontong now, I hope my brothers won't bother me while eating. Hmm, should I eat in secret? LOL!

Mary Sharon Miracle Spa Deep Cleansing Sleeping Mask Review

Hello Guys!

I am back with another beauty review, this time featuring a highly raved brand Mary Sharon which just arrived at the shore of Malaysia just for all of us beauty enthusiast! This brand was born from joint venture between France who leads the research and development department and China that is in charge in marketing. Believing that their products are a 'Queen's Pampering for Everyone', Mary Sharon place a strong emphasize to make sure that their products are not just high quality with top notch result, but also aims to fulfill their customer's dream of skin and beauty perfection at a reasonable pricing.

In order to achieve that, Mary Sharon products have undergone 120,000 times of clinical testing and  obtained a total of 8 different patent! They also received amazing amount of sales figure of 1,000 million in the second half of 2014! They also was awarded 'The Most Potential Brand' in 2014.

Apart from the Spa Sleeping Mask they also have another three key products which are the Mary Sharon Queen Radiance Eye Essence (RM 149/bottle), Mary Sharon Queen Charcoal Cleansing Mask (RM139/10pcs) and also the Mary Sharon Collagen Hydrating Mask (RM99/10pcs). By the way while we are still talking numbers, do you know that this Mary Sharon Sleeping Mask are actually selling 10 bottles per minute worldwide based on the sale count? That's just so amazing right?!

One of the key ingredient in the Mary Sharon Spa Sleeping Mask (RM 129/bottle) is Laminaria Ochroleuca or known as the Golden Seaweed. The extract had shown significant effect on hydration, firmness and smoothness of the skin! Also based on a survey, 80% of users has shown significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkle depth. Therefore, this products works wonder on my dry skin especially with its unique water locking features that will form water-locking nets on the skin to maintain the hydration and allowing skin to regains vitality. It also helps to regulate oily skin, remove dead skin and improve skin dullnes.

Based on my experience on using the product three times in a week I can see that my complexion gets brighter after using it. Some of the pores gets significantly reduced and the dry area on my face especially on the check gets hydrated leaving my skin feeling fresh and plump! Some of the black heads on the nose area also got removed when I washed of the mask after wearing it for a good 15 minutes! On the other hand, the packaging looks so luxurious as if it cost even more than it actually is! I love the heavy feeling of the bottle on my hand and the overall sleekness of it.

I love that the smell of the product is not strong and actually have a nice scent. It has a thick consistency but not too thick and just perfect for easy application. It's also easy to remove with just washing my face. No fuss at all! I recommend using a mask applicator brush to make it even easier to apply!

One of the uniqueness of this product is that you can actually choose between three different ways of applying it based on your needs which is just great! How you put it on can depends on the amount of time you have and how busy you are. So, I guess no more excuse after this right?

Method One:
After cleansing, apply an adequate amount of product onto your face and wash it off after 15 minutes.

Method Two:
Leave a thin layer of mask on your face until the next morning.

Method Three:
Apply a thin layer of mask and wash off after 5 minutes in the morning after cleansing to make your makeup stays on long.

My favourite method is definitely the first as I can really see a significant difference on my skin afterwards. As you can see in the picture above, as minutes goes by the mask gets 'thinner' on my face showing that all the goodness already got absorbed into my skin! It is recommended to use this product at least one or two times a week.

By the way, I have good news for you guys! For the official launching of Mary Sharon this August, they are bringing Hong Kong superstar Julian Cheung Chi-lam as a special guest! This means you can get a chance to meet him! How? It's so easy, all you have to do is to follow three simple steps!

The launching event will be held in Berjaya Times Square Kuala Lumpur on 2nd of August 2015 at 1PM. Please bear in mind that the tickets are limited and at a first come first serve basis!

In overall, I am very impressed with this product. I am currently planning to get their Eye Essence too as I've been seeing good reviews about it. For your easy reference, here again the reasons why I love this mask:

1. Gives skin hydration, firmness and smoothness
2. Reduce pores and brighten complexion

Buffet Ramadhan with Restoran Rebung @ KL Tower - Featuring Breathtaking View!

Hello guys!

Of all the Ramadahan Buffets I have been to this year, the one in KL Tower was definitely most insta-worthy with the amazing view all around. Restoran Rebung collaboration with the KL Tower brings you a taste of Kampung with breathtaking night view of all Kuala Lumpur. The restaurant is owned by Chef Ismail, a well known Malaysian chef whom I bet most of you have heard of.

I was busy taking pictures of the view outside right after entering the banquet hall. I've never seen such view of Kuala Lumpur as clear at it was that day! The night scenery was even better with lights filling up the night. But it's not just the view, the buffet dinner also features a lot of mouthwatering dishes.While dining, there were also accompanying musician performing!

The special menu? For me, its definitely the Gulai Tempoyak Ikan Patin. It's rich and thick,  and the fish doesn't taste fishy at all. There are lot more other Kampung dishes like Masak Lemak Daging Salai,  Masak Lemak Rebung,  Kari Daging with Kentang,  Nasi Ulam and many more.

The dessert section also features Malaysia style menu like my favourite Apam Gula Hangus. You must try the Serawa Durian which is so creamy!! There are assortments of other type of dessert and also fruits slices.

You can also get a freshly made dodol straight from the huge kawah on the side dishes section! There are also assortments of kerabu for you to try. There are also some menu stalls with variety of dishes from noodle soup,  laksa,  fried kuew teow, grilled fish and many more.You can also get some others Malaysian favourite foods like Roti Jala, Rojak and Ramadhan must have Bubur Lambuk.

Crossing Off 'Getting Featured in a Newspaper' in Life Bucket List

Hey guys!

Well, this is old story; I know I should have written about this earlier but first I would like to mention that this post is intended to be a personal yet public documentation of somehow one of the things I've never expected to happen in my life that actually happened to me; and of course it's not at all for bragging because it's not like I found a cure for AIDS or cancer or something brag-worthy about right?

So I was given an opportunity to be a beta tester for a new Korean beauty online shopping site for all Malaysian beauty lovers and I've got to say that I'm so far really am impressed with the site! It's just launched today July 1st 2015 and currently there are so much exciting products that I've been wanting to try and amazing offers available on the website!

Stripping Your Skin Bare @ Strip, Ministry of Waxing

Hey guys!

A few days ago, I've shared about my one day experience getting pampered by Beauty Guide and the first place we went to on that day was Strip, Bangsar for a quick waxing session. Although I've talked about it in the post HERE, I just feel like sharing with you guys a bit more details about Strip, Ministry of Waxing.

It was my first time doing waxing so I was a bit nervous and unsure about it. On the day, we were given options to either do a half arm or underarm waxing due to time constraint. But when I looked at their price listings on the wall, they have various waxing services for customers to choose from.

Strip, Ministry of Waxing comes from Singapore and was established in 2002; and now been popping out in nine different countries worldwide. They have quite a few branches in Malaysia, the two that I know of is in KLCC and Bangsar. You can check out their website here at www.strip-my.com. The website interface is so nice and colourful so I had a bit of fun browsing around.

They uses this 'HSQ' guideline which stands for Hygiene, Speed and Quality so I guess you won't have to worry about when getting a job done by them. I think they've won quite a few awards so the service must be really good.

My session was quick and painless; I have a sensitive skin so there were a bit of redness on my skin but with a proper care it was gone quickly. They also told us some post waxing precautions like not to get to sauna or swimming pool a few days after waxing and etc.

I am not paid to write this, I just have some free time and think it would be great to share a recommendation with you guys. So have you gotten your first waxing experience yet? Any funny story? Don't forget to share with me :)
