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!

Lantern Parade at Klang Parade
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!

So what are you waiting for? Meet up with your friends, spend time with your family or maybe give yourself a day off and join the Klang Parade 'Jom Makan' campaign. Who knows you might be bringing back more than just food. Hehe. For more information about Klang Parade, visit their website which i would link below. Thank you for reading my blog post, and if youre looking to win, GOOD LUCK. xx

[REVIEW] Batiste | Dry Shampoo

Reviewing the Batiste Dry Shampoo
With life being more hectic than ever, I'm super thankful that Batiste is now available in Malaysia! If this is your first time hearing about Batiste, well Batiste is more well known as UK's No. 1 Dry Shampoo. YEP! I said dry shampoo, and yes it's like instant fresher hair without the need of getting your hair wet. It generally claims to revitalize greasy, dull and lifeless hair by adding volume and texture to hair which I must say surprised me. If you're looking to find out more about dry shampoo, you came to the right place as I'll be sharing with you a thing or two about Batiste Dry Shampoo.

HOW TO USE

3 Steps to fabulous hair
To those of you who might be curious about Batiste Dry Shampoo, it's actually an innovative starch-based formulation that targets excess oil and grease at hair roots. My scalp type is usually pretty oily, thus being the reason that Batiste Dry Shampoo is a life savior to me. At times, ESPECIALLY during bad hair days, Batiste would be my solution as you can achieve great looking hair in 3 easy steps.

Best distance to spray: From 10-12 inches away from hair
HEADS UP! Its to be sprayed on dry hair, which means you can skip washing your hair. To achieve flawless flowy hair, first, you need to shake and spray a can of Batiste dry shampoo by separating your hair into sections. Also, take note that it's best if you spray into roots in quick short sprays holding the can 10-12 inches away from hair. Next, one you've gotten your scalp refreshed, give it a good massage to get the dry shampoo do what its suppose to do. And wallah, complete your look by brushing and styling your hair to achieve natural flowing hair. WHATS THERE NOT TO LOVE? <3

VARIETY 

The Scented series
A hint of Colour Divide Dark and Heavenly Volume Dry
As of 2017, there are currently 5 variants that are scented to suit your personality. In terms of scents, there are 3 options to choose from where you can either pick floral & flirty blush, fruity& cheeky cherry, or clean & classic original. Or if you're looking to add more volume to your hair, you can always opt to try out the show stopping heavenly volume dry shampoo. And believe it or not, they also have something for those who color their hair too, where you can decide to go for the hint of color divine dark dry shampoo which helps blend in root regrowth and hides any stray grays.

DETAILS


Comes in a spray bottle
And yes, theres an expiry date attached on the bottle too!
Now what i love most is to highlight on the little details of the product. Every Batiste product comes in a standard spray bottle and what i enjoy checking usually would be the expiry date. Dont you hate it when products dont come with expiry dates? In case youre wondering, the Batiste Dry Shampoo range comes in 2 sizes, 200ml which is priced at RM31.70 and the 50ml which is priced at RM10 inclusive of 6% GST.


VERDICT

Before and After using Batiste
As a verdict, I would say that this would be the ideal solution to pamper your hair even when you're at your busiest moments. It has been designed to be suitable for all hair types & colors without leaving and residue or stickiness, making it a plus point! I love the fact that they have tons of variety and that each Batiste dry shampoo comes with a styling effect. I have to say that my ultimate favorite would be the Blush Dry shampoo as its floral and flirty as it leaves my hair feeling super fresh while adding an adequate amount of texture to my look. And there you have it! Thank you for reading my humble blog post, and if you have any questions running around in your mind, feel free to leave me a comment below. Psst, you can purchase the Batiste Dry Shampoo at Guardian Stores.

No more bad hair days with Batiste Dry Shampoo

Start Strong with Dutch Lady PureFarm

The range of Dutch Lady PureFarm 
Being a lifestyle blogger, i believe that its really important to make sure that i get sufficient nutrients daily, and i would highly recommend that everyone should be aware about your daily consumtion of nutrients. I understand that when having a busy lifestyle, it gets a little tricky when it comes to keeping a healthy balance diet, thus with Dutch Lady PureFarm im happy to say that with Ducth Lady PureFarm, it helps me keep my body going in terms of providing the right nutrients and at the same time keeps my body strong. 

Ms Ashlee Ng giving a few insights on Dutch Lady PureFarm
Recently, Ducth lady PureFarm has a breakfast campaign where we had, Ashlee Ng, Marketing Director of Dutch Lady Malaysia highlighted the importance for Malaysian families to get sufficient essential nutrients from daily breakfast to help them start the day strong.

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it is the first meal we eat after 8 to 12 hours from our last meal. Depriving our bodies of nutrients for as long as 12 hours means our brain lacks energy when we wake up. Our metabolism also needs food to kick-start itself into action,” said Ng.

Present at the event, we also had Professor Dr. Poh Bee Koon of Faculty of Health Sciences, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, who led the SEANUTS Malaysia survey also reported that a third of Malaysian children do not consume breakfast on a daily basis, which makes it all the more important that breakfast foods are selected wisely. Her team analysed seven popular breakfasts to see if they provide sufficient amounts of energy, protein, vitamins A, B2 and D, and calcium to meet 20 to 25% of recommended energy and nutrient intake for both adults and children.

We also had a very interesting chat on how Dutch Lady PureFarm helps to start our day!
According to Professor Poh, the study took cues from MyBreakfast Study of School Children to identify the most commonly consumed foods in the morning amongst Malaysian children, and the ingredients and portions of the breakfasts analysed were according to the Malaysian Dietary Guidelines. The seven commonly consumed Malaysian breakfasts analysed were nasi lemak, mee goreng, nasi goreng, roti canai, roti telur or French toast, sardines sandwich, and a combination of curry puff and two kuih.

I admit that the 7 commonly consumed Malaysian breakfast are commonly consumed by me (charged guilty!) However, when these breakfasts were consumed together with a 250ml serving of Dutch Lady PureFarm milk, the ideal 20 – 25% of daily nutrition intake could easily be met. Energy and all vitamins and mineral measured (vitamins A, B2, D and calcium) met the 20 – 25% daily RNI for adults and children. Who knew? 

Dutch Lady PureFarm provides the essential nutrients you need
Did you know that Dutch Lady PureFarm milk contains the following essential nutrients to help give Malaysian families a strong start every morning? Listed below are some of the benefits of consuming Dutch Lady PureFarm:
  • Protein helps to build and repair tissue so that our muscles work in good condition;
  • Vitamin A allows our eyes to function properly and helps us stay focused and alert, both at school and at work;
  • Vitamin B2 supports the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins;
  • Vitamin D aids the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus; and
  • Calcium is the key for the growth and development of strong bones and teeth for children, and helps adults maintain a healthy bone mass for an active lifestyle.

Have you gotten your cup of milk this morning? 
Parents, friends, and families, be sure to add a glass of Dutch Lady PureFarm milk to your family’s breakfast and they will be ready to take on the day. Like they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away and one glass in the morning every day gives you a stronger start! For more information about how a glass of Dutch Lady PureFarm milk can help you meet your required nutrient intake, go to Dutch Lady Malaysia Facebook at www.facebook.com/spread.the.goodness.of.milk or www.dutchlady.com.my. xx

[REVIEW] Althea Petal Velvet Powder | Althea Korea

Reviewing the Althea Petal Velvet Powder
Being a K-beauty fan myself, I am A HUGE FAN of Althea Korea, not because I'm being biased, but thanks to Althea Korea, I am not required to travel to Korea in order to restock my K beauty products at home. Other than K-beauty, Althea also is a platform to me to discover new Korean products that are less known to the country, with equivalent quality to bigger brands. If you have been following me on Instagram, you might realize that I recently announced a secret product launched by Althea Korea (LIKE OMG FINALLY THEIR OWN BRAND!) Thus, in today's review, I'll be talking to you about the Althea Petal Velvet Powder.

Sealed Packaging with Expiry date
The compact minimalist casing
Althea being filled with a team of K-beauty experts, I have no doubt that the product would be as good as the products that they sell in stores. Being its first product being available online, I think it's a great start that they came up with the Petal Velvet Powder. This is actually a translucent powder that sets makeup and leaves behind a silky finish to the touch. I've tested it myself and I can't deny that I'm in love. I'm very particular about fine details, and I admire the exclusiveness of the packaging that comes sealed with an expiry date. YAS!

It's even sealed on the inside with a cute note on it!
Testing around with the product
I'm a regular translucent powder user and let me get the facts straight on what makes this Petal Velvet Powder different from the rest. Other than it comes in a super cute compact packaging, it's actually infused with oil from Althea seeds (Actual Althea flower gais), and it works to minimize sebum production without leaving your skin looking too dry. In case you're wondering, the texture of the powder is extremely light and the results are really satisfying! Each pack comes in a 3g compact packaging at an affordable price of RM16 only! #jawsdropped

Apying a few puffs after I'm done with my make up
As you can see, I've already applied make up in my review and since this sets makeup, to use this is as easy as one, two, three!  With this Althea baby, it really enhances your makeup and it's the perfect final touch to complete your look. Upon applying this, there is no doubt that the therapeutic scent would surprise you making you wish that the scent stays with you forever. I don't know about you, but this actually made my mornings even better, especially before going to work.

The final look after application!
Up close, I noticed that after applying the Althea Petal Velvet Powder, it actually made my pores less visible, makes my make up last longer, and it gives my skin a silky fresh look! This little compact is currently in my must have things in my bag and with a few puffs, I'm shine-free! As a verdict, I really adore this product as I have oily combination skin, and this suited my skin perfectly without making my skin looking too dry. YAY! Since it only comes in translucent, I believe that it has been made to suit almost any skin tone so it should be a problem for anyone, or any skin shade to use this. MAJOR LOVE!

And there you have it!
I still can't believe that at only RM16, you can say bye bye to shiny skin! Get yours today from Althea Korea or by hovering over the link below for your convenience. Trust me, there is no regret if you ever own this and it would also be a great friendship gift too (hints friends) ! I can't wait to see more product launches from Althea Korea and be sure to be on a look out before they're sold out. Feel free to leave me comments if you would want to share your thoughts or if you have any other inquiries on the product mentioned. Thanks for dropping by xx

[REVIEW] Unboxing CubeCrate ; July 2017 Box

Unboxing my July Cubecrate box
Hey guys, i present to you CubeCrate's July 2017 Box and this time around the box seems a little heavy. Hehe. Im a little excited this for July's mystery subscription box because i would like to consider it as my birthday box from CubeCrate since im getting it during my birthday month. Hehe. I cant believe that CubeCrate has really gone a long way from the beginning, but i see them actually going strong with orders still being as active as ever! YAY!

Here's a little sneak peak on whats inside
Now as usual, i would like to spill the details on whats the featured items in this months mystery subscription box! This month surprisingly has a really cue picnic theme box as mentioned in the pamplet and it features 4 brands namely Oishi Green Tea, Tinkerberry Natural Body Treat, Kon'nichiwa and amoura Scarlett. Looks like im ready for a picnic getaway this weekend. Hehe.

OISHI GREEN TEA

Oishi Green Tea anyone?
I dont think i need an introduction to Oishi as they've been very much well known for providing really good green tea especially when you're on the go. I would usually grab a bottle from convenient stores when im craving for one, and i appreciate that CubeCrate included a bottle of Oishi Green Tea in this months box. Since one bottle wont be enough, I'm thankful that CubeCrate actually gave me the idea of what would be the perfect drink to surprise my guest during my picnic soon to plan reunion. hehe.

TINKERBERRY Natural Body Treat

Tinkerberry Shea + Rose Lip Balm
Next would be a little something from Tinkerberry Natural Bath & Body Treats. It has been described to produce dessert inspired range of bath and body products which has been carefully crafted with the finest organic ingredients without any preservatives or chemicals. I believe that in todays era, it is indeed a trend to introduce non harmful products which im all in to support.  TINKERBERRY is a new brand to me, and i managed to check out what other items they have on their site. Psst: Price is really reasonable!

Just look at those bits of rose! I like!
I got myself a Deep Moisture Therapy lip balm that contains shea and rose as the main ingredient. A personal thought on the lip balm is that I have to say that I love the fact that it has raw colors and when applied it not at all feels sticky! #perksofhandmadeproducts. It's actually VERY MOISTURISING without leaving my lips feeling uncomfortable, and truth be told, this is now in my handbag for daily moisturizing. hehe.


RACKUN.KISS

Here's a little something from Rackun Kiss
Yummy cookies which dissapeared within seconds!
I also got myself some sweet treats from Rackun.Kiss. I believe that they bake japanese inspired desserts and im assuming that they are very new in the industry. Their cookies were surprisingly really good and im in hopes to order more for ocassions! I hope CubeCrate would collaborate with them once again for some goodness and i really hope theres a special code for first time orders from Rakun.Kiss. They really have potential. AHHH! I actually feel lucky to have a bag of cookies in being available in my CubeCrate mystery subscription box. hehe.


AMORA SCARLETT

Shades with an Engraved casing with my name on it from Amora Scarlett
Last but not least would be one of the highlighted items found in my July Box from Amora Scarlett! Amoura Scarlett is famous for their array of eyewear collection which ranges from classics to edgy desings to cater to any style preferrences. I managed to scroll through their instagram account, and im already eyeing on another eyepiece from them. LAV! So i warn you, keep your card on standby if youre planning to browse through their online store. hehe

Got myself their Yellow Lens Aviator with Gold Frame worth RM112.90 which comes with a custom leather pouch exclusively by Amora Scarlett! Never really thought this existed anymore as i would consider this design rather rare being it a classic design for aviators. Way to go by bringing back the classics into trend! Im also amazed that it has my name written on their leather pouch! THANK YOU CUBECRATE for making it possible! AHHH! But its also thanks to you, i'd be spending more on shades from Amora Scarlett.


VERDICT

Here's an extra gift from CubeCrate i assume. hehe
And here is what in my July 2017 box 
And thats about it! I personally LOVE July's 2017 mystery subscription box as it features 75% of new brands that i've never heard of, but i have imediate love for once i got a taste of it. This month's box has been really exciting and it has triggered me to plan a picnic with my friends. YAY! Time to start planning and thanks for the idea CubeCrate. I have to say that my favourite item of all in this box would be the Amora Scarlett. Hehe. Cause honey, you can never have enough shades in life. I believe that i also got an Aloe Vera Natural Soothing Gel as a gift from CubeCrate as a bonus item. So tadaa! Thank you CubeCrate and thanks to you for reading my humble unboxing post. Till my next post gais xx

[HEALTH] Preventing the 3 Highs with Anlene


I know that im only 25 as of 2017, but believe me when I say that I believe that taking care of your health is very important. Both my parents being doctors at home, I really have them to thank for guiding me to take care of myself the right way. With high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high blood sugar is a serious issue which Malaysians take very lightly till it's too late, I would like to emphasize to you on a few facts and ways to prevent yourself from suffering from the 3 Highs.


"Nearly 1 in every 2 Malaysian adults has high blood cholesterol, 1 in every 3 has high blood pressure, 1 in every 6 has type 2 diabetes and 1 in four heart attack patients are below 50 years old" - Dr. Chee Kok Han.


High cholesterol, high blood pressure and high blood sugar being known as the 3 Highs, are main risk factors for non-communicable diseases, which accounts for an estimated 73% of total deaths in Malaysia. Its pretty scary when you really think about it, and it can happen to anyone who lacks knowledge on preventing the 3 Highs. Cardiovascular diseases including heart attacks and strokes are the biggest contributor to non-communicable diseases and these diseases usually depends on your dietary and lifestyle habits to achieve better heart health.

PREVENTING 3 HIGHS with ANLENE


Anlene has been the leading adult milk brand and I had a one in a lifetime chance to be present with its ambassador Dato' Sheila Majid who calls out to Malaysians to care for their hearts. Fonterra understanding consumers healthy living needs have driven the company to innovate the latest heart caring formulation and to initiate campaigns that raise awareness of heart health. This year, the new product Anlene HeartPlus features both MoveMax and HeartMax which is a combination of nutrients that cares for the heart while supporting movement of the body.


HeartMax nutrient bundle includes Plant Sterols to reduce cholesterol, Omega 3 (DHA & EPA) to help reduce triglycerides or fats in the blood and Potassium to help maintain normal blood pressure. On top of that, Anlene HeartPlus formulation is tested to be low in the glycemic index to help manage blood sugars in the body too.


"So I urge Malaysians, young and old to start taking care of their hearts and control the 3 Highs. Exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet and drink two glasses of Anlene HEART-PLUS daily and you can continue to do what you love." - Dato' Sheila Majid


Anlene Heart-Plus is now available at major retail outlets nationwide. For more information about Anlene Heart-Plus and ways to stay heart healthy, go to Anlene's Malaysia Facebook or Official Website to find out some tips and hints on keeping yourself healthy and active to keep your 3 Highs in check.
