[OPENING PROMOTION] Jalan Jalan Japan Opening in One Shamelin Mall | Discount

Lets check out Jalan Jalan Japan
So to all the shopaholics out there, this blog post goes to you. Jalan Jalan Japan has been a must visit location for shopaholics when it first launched its first store in Skypark, and since it was a success they have decided to launch the second Outlet which would be in one Shamlin mall. I am super thankful to be given the chance to attend their preview lunch and since it was my first time I didn't expect the collection to be very interesting but surprisingly it was more than interesting.

And here's my excited face cause its my first time here!
Jalan Jalan Japan at one Shamalin mall will be opening at stores the public on 30 September 2017, and if you're excited to find out more, I'll be sharing you a few things that you might need to know about Jalan Jalan Japan. You might be wondering where all the stuff comes from, and the answer to that would be that the founders had an idea of pre-loved goods to be loved by someone new. And as the saying goes ' another person's trash, might be another person's treasure'. With that in mind, that's the reason why Jalan Jalan Japan has made its success to Malaysia.

Walking around their alley of clothes!
Ironically the first thing that caught my eye
And the variety in Jalan Jalan Japan was surprisingly very unique in terms of getting products that are not available in Malaysia. The funny story was that I only walked a few steps into the store (the home deco alley to be exact), something already caught my eye and immediately got into my basket, which I got from the friendly staff as the lucky few previewers entered the store. It's funny cause I saw a unique frame which looks entirely new at the price of RM6?! Yes, it's pretty cute too! There are other items as well that was indeed eye-catching such as novelties, vases, holiday decor and more!

Why not get a sweater at only RM20 which looks entirely new
A variety of tumblers/flask to choose from.
Japanese Novelties
Japanese glassware
Their alley of shoes
Japanese rattan storage drawers
Baby prams at an affordable price that is still in good condition
They even have surf boards guys! 
Roller skates and roller blades are available too!
Old vintage toys that is almost complete to bring back your childhood days
Some shoes that are still wearable
A suitcase at a crazy price
The store is as big as the parking lot, taking up almost the whole of the 3rd floor so you can imagine how huge the store is. The store is divided into different sections where you can browse through a selection of clothes, bags, shoes, kitchen items, home and living items, baby items, kids toys, collectibles and more! Trust me when I say that if anybody walks into Jalan Jalan Japan, you will surely find something that you would want to have as the prices are insanely cheap! And if you're a good hunter, you could possibly find items that are like brand new at a steal price. 

MY SNAGS! 


Here's my haul from Jalan Jalan Japan
Got myself a pretty cool stand | RM30
Japanese slippers and clutch | RM20
So you must be wondering what my haul was during the preview, here's a little sneak peek! I got myself a picnic basket, a picture frame that I couldn't resist, Japanese slippers & clutch, 2 Japanese Obi Belt with Ribbon, a Japanese lunch box, a cool shelf and a Pikachu (cause it's from Japan). HAHA. Most of the items that I purchased were practically almost new, and even if it's used, it has only been used once or twice at the most. Hehe. But I would have to say that my favorite snag of all would be the picnic bag. Hehe. I always wanted to own a picnic bag, and they're usually priced at over RM200 for really good ones, but the one I got was only at RM40.

Obi Belts | RM15 - RM20
I also can't believe that I got myself the Obi Belt which my Kimono was missing. I was searching for it when I was in Japan, but believe me when I say that its crazy expensive once you convert your Malaysian Ringgit to Yen. Which was also the reason that I didn't purchase it together with my kimono while I was in Japan. And you have no idea how happy I was to find it available at Jalan Jalan Japan. Its practically brand new and super gorge! And whats even better was that it was only between RM15 to RM20 per set. How could you even resist!

My picnic basket | RM40
Another steal purchase was my picnic bag that I managed to snag during the preview and I'm shocked to find it available at Jalan Jalan Japan. Hehe. The one I bought was only at RM40 and its still in really good condition with the lock still which still works. Maybe the only defect on it was a bitty stain that looks like a dot to me, but what the heck. Picnic baskets like these would have cost me 5 times to price, but since I got it at a steal deal, like what the heck. Hehe.

An Osechi Ryori | RM20
Pickachu with a Charizard hoodie | RM10
Or if you're simply looking for a Japanese souvenir, well this has to be the place to find some Japanese Novelties. I got me something like a bento box which would be known as an Osechi Ryori in Japan to be used during a new year celebration. I may not be Japanese, but if you would like a unique bento lunch box, or if you would want to be creative and use it as storage, then why not. Priced at only RM20, why would you even need to think twice? I also couldn't resist getting a little Pikachu which cost me only RM10, its the exact same thing you can find at the Pokemon center if you're a Pokemon fan, and the retail price would have been over RM100! I would consider most the items I purchased an awesome bargain. 

Opening day Special


#Serbujjj

The secret to a cats heart is with 'Burp!' | Cat Food

Find out what Pandora has to say about Burp!
I believe that if you're an animal lover, you would obviously be owning or wished that you own a pet. And to my friends and loyal followers on social media, you would know that I own a fussy cat named Pandora. If you met her in person, you would know how pampered and loved she is at home. But despite her upper-class attitude, I would have to admit that at times, she does brighten your day in her own way, especially when I'm stressed from work. Trust me, she really means a lot to me. Basically the only reason each time I look forward to coming home.

Just sharing that i got my Burp! Chicken and Salmon from Pet Lovers Centre || 5% off with VIP card
Pandora being my private psychologist never fails to make me feel better. I, at times, am not sure how do I reward her for changing my gloomy day to a sunny one effortlessly. To love a pet takes more than just love and attention, but some pet owners forget to give them the right nutrition. It's like they all say, if you love yourself, you should take care of your health. Having a housepet can be tricky as they depend on you (the owner) to feed them with the right food. So how your cat acts and appear may determine by you

About Burp! 

Burp!'s Chicken and Salmon
I was recently introduced with the Burp! Chicken With Salmon kibbles and surprisingly Pandora loves it! Trust me when I say that she's a fussy cat, and since Burp! managed to impress her, I would have to say that this blog post is a worthy blog post to talk about. Burp has been in the industry for a while now, and I would have to say that its one of the reasonably priced pet food that emphasizes on the right nutrition within their ingredients.

Some facts and it even has its expiry date
Other than Burp! Chicken with Salmon being naturally hypoallergenic, it contains prebiotics for healthy digestion, salmon for omega 3 and is formulated without wheat, gluten, beef or pork. And what attracted me the most about Burp! Chicken with Salmon was that it has no added artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, just how I want my meals to be. Hehe. With natural ingredients being packages nicely, I was already convinced when it has a tag that says 'tasty & wholesome' on the bag of kibbles. Hehe.

Packaging

Look, guys! You won't have to worry about storing it too!
I got mine in a 1.35kg packaging which I good to last about a month for 1 adult cat. I like the fact that it had a ziplock seal to ensure that your pet food is kept air-tight and fresh for your pet to consume. It also has a general feeding guide depending on the weight of your cat to follow. At the description section of the bag, there was a message that says that Burp! was created with passion making each pack of Burp! cat food that your cat would enjoy. OH, did you also noticed that each bag would have a Best Before Date to keep the kibble fresh and to ensure quality for our furry friends

Does my pet approve?

I think you can tell from the looks of her face
Enjoying her food with her eyes closed
Despite this being my first time introducing to my pet on the new meal plan, surprisingly I didn't even have to train her to get used to the new food. Which also means that she loves it! I find it hard at times to have a picky cat like Pandora, but with Burp! I'd have to say that I'm thankful that I won't have to worry about my cat not loving it. hehe. Now I won't have to worry about my cat getting enough nutrients or in ensuring that she practices a healthy diet daily.  AWESOME! 

Verdict

Enjoying her Burp! Chicken and Salmon
What the kibbles look like
Well as a verdict, I would have to say that I won't have to worry about my cat not loving Burp cause without a doubt, cats love Burp! (verified by Pandora). Thanks to their passionate team to provide heartiness, satisfaction, and to keep my pets bones strong too! It's funny that when I got this on the first day, I actually kept it for about 3 days before introducing this to my cat, funny enough, I spotted bite marks on the bag and its obviously my cats bite marks. LOL. It must be that good that I don't even need to introduce it to her for her to like it so much. Thanks, Burp! For pet owners, rest assured that when you pet consumes Burp! Chicken and Salmon, their poop wouldn't smell bad like some food would cause them to. So that's another plus point! Hehe. Well, that's all for now. Thank you for reading my humble blog post, do leave me a comment if you have any other inquiries. xx

Avon's latest Perfume launch || Femme Exclusive and Homme Exclusive

Avon's Latest Perfume | Femme Exclusive and Homme Exclusive
This is just in guys! If you haven't heard, Avon has recently launched a pair of exclusive perfume for him and for her making it a perfect gift for couples, a perfect gift for your girlfriend or boyfriend, or even for anyone in your life that you think deserves a touch of exclusiveness. I've pretty much grown with Avon where I still remember the days that I brought the Avon booklet with me to get teachers and my friend's parents to buy stuff and the small commission would always be rewarded to me by my mom at the age of 8. HAHA, memories. Avon has practically grew up till i hit puberty!

Presenting the Homme Exclusive and Femme Exclusive
So here's the real deal. You might be wondering what makes these perfumes a must have? Since I have it in my hands, this post would tell you all about what you need to know. Introducing to you the two exclusive fragrances by Avon, Avon Femme Exclusive, and Avon Homme Exclusive. I personally believe that perfumes play a big role in setting the right mood and I'm happy to say that the Avon Exclusive range is surprisingly versatile, making it suitable for different occasions.

Avon Femme Exclusive

Femme Exclusive | RM89.00WM and RM102.40EM
Even the bottle looks really exclusive
A little review on the Avon Femme Exclusive features a mesmerizing oriental scent with a special touch of pear, jasmine, and vanilla. I would personally have to say that the combination of pear and jasmine unexpectedly compliments each other really well and I love the fact that the fragrance of vanilla later lingers after. The fragrance has a light pastel purple shade with a soft mysterious scent that would guarantee to make any women feel fresh, sexy, gentle and seductive (or at least, that would be the character I would describe).

Price: RM89.00 (WM) & RM102.40 (EM)
Fragrance Category: Feminine, Sweet, Fruity, Floral and Fresh.
Content: 50ml

Avon Homme Exclusive

Homme Exclusive | RM89.00WM and RM102.40EM
Doesnt it give you a mysterios James Bond feel?
Next would be a review on the Avon Homme Exclusive which features a woody scent with grapefruit and spices you leave any man feeling luxurious and powerful. I'm not too sure on how to describe the perfume on a men perspective, but from a female side of it, I actually find the scent rather attractive as its very masculine. Despite the scent being labeled as woody aromatic, the scent actually moves towards a fresh fragrance to bring out the confidence of a man to last throughout the day. I would imagine this scent to be on James bond if you ask me. Hehe.

Price: RM89.00 (WM) & RM102.40 (EM)
Fragrance Category: Masculine, Woody, Spicy.
Content: 50ml

VERDICT

My thoughts on the Homme and Femme Exclusive?
My overall thoughts on the new range would be that I love it! Both fragrances compliment each other really well, and to have this in a pair makes it the perfect power fragrance to flaunt your confidence, the feel of luxury, glamour, and class. I would highly recommend these scents to be as a night out fragrance, but really, I also find it suitable to be used on a casual day or on a red carpet night. Fragrances that can be used during the day and night are a plus point to me, and if you're looking for a scent that would be versatile enough to last you throughout the day, you should really get a sniff of this. For the retail price, I would say that this would be an 'exclusive' deal to be scoring a bottle of the Femme and Homme Exclusive fragrance for less than RM105 per bottle.

My Rating: 4.5/5

Thank you so reading my humble review and if you would like to find out more about the new fragrance, you can always leave me a comment below OR head on over to your nearest Avon store today. Live a glamorous life with a glamorous fragrance to start your day fresh with a hint of class. Psst, it's currently my everyday perfume and I'm loving how strong yet subtle the scent is. A spray of this would be an instant solution to boost confidence. Hehe. Well, that's all for now folks, till my next post. xx

Eat and Win at Klang Parade | Sweet Treats

Jom Makan campaign at Klang Parade
Klang Parade is a great shopping center filled with entertainment for families and friends to spend their free time together. And in my case, i would have to say that other than the variety of stores that they offer, i get excited meeting my friends in Klang to have desserts in Klang Parade. Hehe. Dont mind me, when im feeling stressed, i hunt for sugary sweetness since stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Hehe. Whats even better is that they are currently rewarding their shoppers as they dine with its on-going 'Jom Makan' campaign thats running from the 16th of September till the 15th of October 2017! Wondering what you could be rewarded with? Read on to find out!

To welcome the Mid -Autumn Festival, like any other mall, Klang Parade has decided to join in the season by decorating the mall with Festive decorations and if you havent heard, there will also be a Lantern parade happening on the 30th of September 2017! A great time to bring your kids or friends to enjoy the celebration. You wont even have to even worry about looking for a place to eat as Klang Parade has tons of places to choose from, listed would be, Texas Chicken, Tako Wan, Baskin Robins, Boat Noodle, Nice Smell, Big Apple Donuts. Secret Recipe and more!

Big Apple Donuts and Coffee 

Just some of my favorites!
Being my go to mall each time im in Klang , i'd have to say that i love the variety of options they have in one location. Im the kind of person who loves sweet treats, and i pledge guilty for consuming too much sweets in a day. (But the truth is, thats why i exercise). Hehe. My usual go to dessert locations would be Big Apple Donuts & Coffee located on the 5th floor. Idk about you, but i have to say that Big Apple Donuts are my favorite donuts to have in Malaysia. Mmmhmm. If you havent tried  Big Apple donuts, then its about time you give them a go!

While youre there, check out what Nice Smell has to offer
My all time classic favourite
Candy House to satisfy your candy cravings


Any kids candy heaven
On days when i feel like having light snacks, i would recommend you to check out Nice Smell or Candy House. Nice Smell, has some awesome waffles and the classic corn in a cup to recall my childhood staple food. haha. But if youre not looking to munch, then you should check out the variety of candy the Candy House has to offer! Its located on the Gound floor of Klang Parade, and the variety of candy they have makes it any kids heaven. If youre a kid at heart like me, you'd find a hard time not getting more than 1 type of candy.

Baskin Robbins, your one stop premium ice cream store

Get some to share with your friends and family
And on hot afternoons, why not visit Baskin Robbins for some sweet ice cream and consider it as  a bonus if you happen to be there on the 31st of the month where you are entitled for 31% off when you purchase a tub of ice cream. I have yet to try all the different flavours of Baskin Robbins ice-cream and it seems that it never ends. Never get bored when you have Baskin Robbins to keep your sweet tooth satisfied.

For every RM30 spent, redeem a unit of Micro Thermo
Now that you've heard my favourite go to places when im craving for sugar, you must be wondering how will you be rewarded by dining? Well, HERE IT IS! When you spend a minimum of RM30 (maximum 2 receipts) from any F&B outlets in Klang Parade, you'd be entitled to redeem 1 unit of Micro Thermo. And when you spend above RM80 (maximum 2 receipts) at any F&B outlets, you'd be entitled to redeem 1 unit of a Micro Thermo AND 1 lucky draw. Imagine eating and you get a unit of Micro Themo as well? Its like a win-win situation of getting rewarded for eating. hehe

Lucky Draw prizes up for grab
If you have a lucky star in your pocket, then you should bring your lucky star out to possibly win the lucky draw grand prize of 1 unit of OGAWA TENS Therapy Electromagnetic Foot Massage worth RM1,999. The second prize is 1 unit of OGAWA Mobile Seat XE Plus - XD Tech massage Cushion worth RM1,198 and as consolation, there will be 10 SSF Cash vouchers worth RM50 each up for grabs!
