The last teen year.

Friday, January 31, 2014

I figured today would be a perfect day for me to write about my 19th birthday as today is the first day of Chinese New Year, it kind of represent a whole new year, not to mention a new start.
On the other hand the starting of this year is actually the end of my teen years,
why you may ask?
I'm turning 20 next year :o
like whaaaaat? is this even happening?
time passes by too fast that even I can't catch up with it anymore,
so little time for me to achieve my personal goals. *sigh*
anyways, I wanted to say thank you to those who sent birthday wishes to me on any social network,
and as for those who celebrated and surprised me, I really really love you guys.

there were 3 celebrations in total, 2 out of 3 was unexpected though
the first celebration was a simple dinner in Suffolk house with the love one,
he made a reservation there, and blind folded me on our way there because he didn't want me to know where we were going.
Turns out that he didn't forget that I wanted to try the dinner course there,
and he thought it would be perfect to have my birthday dinner there.




I loveeeee our dessert ! the butter cookies are amazingggg 

My outfit of the night from Twenty3my 

On my actual birthday, we just went to watch some lame chinese action movie that was so boring to the extent that I fell asleep in the cinema.
and then we had steamboat for dinner with his sister and her boyf. 
On monday, my college buddies surprised me with a birthday cake and cute presents in Winter Warmers
I was shooting the birthday video, and out of no where, they started singing birthday song and it really did put me in shock .

Thankyouuuuu cat lady! for everything :'))

 The Oreo cake is yummy !! 

Zane & Steven !! 
Thankyou bro's !! :D
*spot zane's act cute face*

And then the third surprise was unbelievably amazing, 
I was supposed to have a simple dinner with my current best friend, 
you guys might know her as Carmen Layrynn,
however, 
she planned a surprise with Wallace and it was seriously unexpected. . . 
She told me that her phone speaker spoilt so she asked me to borrow her my headphone so that she can make phone calls without using loud speaker. 
and I fell for it -.-
She was actually going to use the headphones to distract me from hearing any of them talking, 
yes 'them', 
my college buddies, Carmen layrynn and Wallace Mak, my boyfriend. 
She even blind folded me ! 
the same blindfold that Wallace mak used to blind fold me on our way to Suffolk house!

My friends and balloons hahaha
its the second year being with Wallace and every year, its like a tradition for him to buy 6 helium balloons in pink & white x)

Still waiting . . . . .

I was seriously so scared, 
I thought she's going to scare me or something, but I kind of already knew Wallace mak would be there because of that blind fold ><



Thank you guys so so much, 
for the celebration, the surprise and nevertheless, THE LOVEEEEE
x)

Best birthday I had so far.
was complaining about the movies and lack of love from boyfriend to Carmen Layrynn and Carmen Ngo but they were like 'really?' or 'so speechless leh' 
now I know x)
all fake one hahahahaha 

Xie xie niiiii bunnyyyyyyyy <3
NUFFFF NUFFFFFFFF xx


Thanks to both of my favorite girlies <3

I love the poster :')))

Here's a video of the 3 birthday celebration, the surprise at the end is included too !!!! :D

Yadah Sunblock Review

Monday, January 27, 2014

Sponsored Review
The best anti-wrinkle cream is sunscreen – worn every day when you were a child. Because nearly everything you see on your face when you hit your mid-30’s and beyond (fine lines, spots, wrinkles, sagging skin) is from unprotected sun exposure.
Yes, the best protection layer for our skin, is sunscreen! 
it is the most important step of our skin care routine. 

well, I'm pretty sure you guys are familiar with the brand YADAH, 
I had done a review on their skin care product before HERE, just in case you haven't read it, 
Something different about YADAH is that it is 100% made from natural ingredients
and this time, their new sunblock is also  100% colorless and transparent (zero color pigments) which means no makeup remover is needed, highly moisturizing, fast-absorbing, non-tinted, non-sticky and non-greasy. YADAH Oh My Sun Block is also extremely lightweight texture in matte finish, it feels like you’re wearing nothing at all ! Most people hate applying sunblock because it is sticky and just so hard to absorb ://
However, the YADAH Oh My Sun Block does not leave our skin feeling greasy and uncomfortable ! 
I am so afraid of being dark skin so I will always apply sunblock before heading out from home, 
the YADAH Oh My Sun Block is the perfect match for me !!


Besides that, the color won't make a big difference with our natural skin tone too! :D
Some horrible sunscreen leave uneven white patches all over our skin that made us look like we have some skin disease which is horrible.. >< 
Thank god for YADAH, this amazing sunblock does wonders to my skin.


11 Key Benefits:
√ Colorless & highly moisturizing
√ Exceptionally lightweight in a matte finish
√ Suitable for all skin types even sensitive ones
√ Fast-absorbing; Non-sticky and non-greasy
√ Light and refreshing scent
√ Free from 8 harmful chemicals
√ Contains natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Lavender
√ Formulated with sebum control; non-acnegenic and non-camedogenic
√ Minimize skin damage from sun exposure
√ Fragrance-free
√ No makeup remover is needed

 There's SPF35 PA++ for this sunblock, and again, what is SPF?
So in conclusion, sunscreen is equally as important as other skin care product, 
don't think that sunscreen is not important! 
lemme tell you a secret to maintaining fair and radiant skin, 
by using sunscreen, it can block away high percentage of sun UV rays, and that can prevent our skin from damaging and becoming darker and darker. 



Loving it !! 
Thank you for reading this post! 
If you're interested in purchasing this product, it will be available in Sasa during early February and not end of January :)
and this brand new Oh My Sun Block SPF35 PA++ 50ml will be retailing at 49MYR :)

New Hair Chalk Review !

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Sponsored Review 

Helloooo beautiful people !
If you had follow my blog since a long time ago, you would probably remember my first ever tutorial which is also a hair chalk tutorial.
i had long brown hair back then and also using the cheaper type of hair chalk which makes my hair look and feel frizzy and dry,
also,
it is super DUPER DIRTY AFTER USING IT!!!
so troublesome, every time need to clean up after dolling up, so tired of being a girl man.
However, I recently received a box of sponsored hair chalk and it is AMAZING.

It took me some time to blog about it as I was waiting to get my hair done, as in back to natural dark copper color, so the bright chalk collar will appear much more vibrant on my dark hair.
I finally dyed is courtesy of Hairtistic Hair Studio! and I LOVE THE COLOUR !

Hot Huez Temporary Hair Chalk 

It comes in four beautiful vibrant color!
included: Hot pink, Electric blue, Fiery purple and Neon green
Hpwever, due to lighting problems, the purple turned into pink and pink turned into orange in the picture ><
*the orange color in the picture is actually pink, it is really really pretty in person !! *

So, what so special about this hair chalk?
it is packed in a little container that allows us to clip our hair in order to transfer the color from the chalk to our hair! 
its has a sponge on the opposite side of the chalk to make the whole coloring process go much more smoother. 

Here's a mini demo, 

 And here is the outcome !! 
I SUPER DUPER LOVE IT!!!
It looks blue-greyishhh <3

Is that a fake mini dimple? LOL 


Love my TR ! No need photoshop at all man D: 
Okay okay, enough dy!  too much self obsessed-ness LOL
so what do you think?? 
compared to my last post, which is this one right HERE
this is so much better <3

Thank you @cnl_instashop !!!
Chinese new year is around the corner, do pay their instagram page a visit and who knows? you might actually find something you're interested in :D


 goodnight !

Chinese New Year Prosperity Set Dinner at G hotel

Sunday, January 19, 2014

Well, according to my mouth full of title,
you could probably guessed what my post is going to be about!
As we all know, Chinese New Year is around the corner and people would want to book a restaurant for the prosperity dinner-aka, reunion dinner :)
Unlike most families, my family is considered pretty small, there are only me, mom & dad,
so going to a fancy restaurant for reunion dinner would usually be a little overwhelming for us,
However, this time, we could consider booking a dinner slot in Sesame + Soy Pan Asian Chinese Cuisine, G Hotel.

They are trying something a little bit different this year,
as they count each table by pax and not only restricted for 10 people per table.
So for small families like mine, can consider to give them a try !

During this festive season, there are three decadent set menus for us to choose from,
that is one set lunch menu at RM68++, and two set dinner menus at the price of RM98++ and RM128++ per person.
This prosperity set menu is available daily from 31st January to 14th February.

This is the full list of food for the set lunch

And this is the set dinner list for Set A at RM98++
and Set B 128++ 

We were really lucky to get invitation to G hotel for food testing in Soy + Sesame Pan ! 
Courtesy of Soy + Sesame Pan, we get to test the RM128++ set dinner :D

The first dish served was Riches & Honors Yee Sang :)
*Kwei Fei abalone & norwegian salmon

We even get to "lou yee sang" to mix up all the ingredients together, 
there's a myth saying that the higher we raise our chopstick while mixing this dish, 
the better and luckier we will get throughout this whole new year ! :D

The second dish served was Braised Sea Treasure Chowder
Lobster meat & Bamboo Fungus

Such a delicious dish, it was actually one of my favorite! 

The next dish is a Two Variety Combination, 
Deep fried boneless Chicken w/ Kiwi Dressing
Saute├ęd fried prawn w/ Tomato Butter Cream cheese Flavors

Yes, there isn't any typo for the chicken's name, because the dressing is indeed made out of kiwi, 
kiwi--> fruit
The chef is really creative and he even explained to us that instead of just serving deep fried dishes that are oily and unhealthy, 
he came up with a fresher idea of using healthy fruits for the dressing! 

Assorted Sea Kingdom Combinations
simmered with sea moss and local farm green

I am a person that loves mushroom & vegetable A LOT, 
I just crave for them 24/7, writing about this dish now is making my mouth watering ><
I believe most children are like me, whenever they attend a wedding dinner or any course dinner, 
they will definitely look out for this dish as it is one of the most suitable dish for children! 

Steamed Cod Fish With Hinshinmeji Mushrooms
In supreme soy 
I got to say that the texture of the fish is tender yet not to soft to the extent that is became like mashed potato, 
the texture is just so perfect. Together with the supreme soy, it is a match make in heaven. 

Our dessert served was Sweetened Dried Longan meat with peaches & sea coconut
Ginko nuts & Lotus seed

There is even white fungus in it ! 
It does wonders to our skin :D


They invited the chef in to explain more details to us bloggers and reporters, 
and we really did get to know more about The Sesame + Soy pan 
According to Chef Chiam Choon Heng, 
The style of last year's dishes were more fusion and they change it more towards to traditional style this year, 
He said that the ideas suggested by the boss was that they keep the tradition of chinese food as it is Chinese New Year, so he put his creativeness in to the dishes by adding a new style flavors and dressing like the fried chicken with kiwi dressing. 

Chef Chiam even mentioned that these dishes were meant to serve without rice unless the customers request for it. 
He said that dishes with better ingredients are more healthy and also filling enough as dinner. 



There's even a little G hotel teddy bear collection for each of us in the goodie bag! 
check out my new dark hair color :))
