Christmas Promotions and Fun Activities at Citta Mall


As we're all trying to keep our distance during this pandemic, I personally like to go to Citta Mall being one of my favorite malls to explore considering it's like your little neighborhood mall that practically has all the things you need. From food, entertainment, groceries, and so much more, I gotta say that the mall is conveniently located within Petaling Jaya and that parking is always plenty. You won't ever have to worry about not getting a car park whenever you're there. Considering the virus also spreads faster in air-conditioned areas, I'm happy that Citta Mall has an open concept, making it way safer to enjoy the outdoor breeze without being under the hot sun. 

After a while of not being out, I decided to check out what Citta Mall has to offer with close friends, especially when I haven't been there for a while, and to my surprise, there are so many new stores being opened at the mall. Lucky enough, my favorite stores like Onde-onde is still there, so I'm pretty much contented with the whole minor change of the mall. In fact, it just got better! While waiting for my friends to arrive, I made a pit stop at SOStretch, which is a Physiotherapy center that helps to solve your body pain issues. I had no regrets popping by as they really did a great job in minimizing my shoulder pain. Also before I forget to mention how I ended up at their outlet, it's only because they were offering this amazing deal at RM88 per session which usually would instead cost you over RM169+ per session. That's more than half the price, and I couldn't really resist! So, if you ever want to experience the physio solution to solving your body pains, this would absolutely be a good time to do so. 

Lunch at Original Kayu


So, to start off with our outing, we decided to meet up at Original Kayu which happens to be a new attraction to Citta Mall. I don't remember seeing Original Kayu previously during my last visit (which was also before covid happened) and now, they have it here! I love how quiet it is, and not to forget that there are ample of seats at the restaurant. If you're a fan of Mamak food, you'd know that Original Kayu serves the best of the best, so this being a gathering occasion, we couldn't resist ordering what they were famous for, which was their Fish head curry, the fried squid, fried chicken, daging masak hitam and more! What was even better is that I felt like we were living in the future, since Original Kayu had these robot waiters serving us our main dish. Hands down, we are definitely living in the future considering I'm experiencing this. 

Firezone (VIP room)



After filling in our tummies, we just had to sing our hearts out for finally catching up after years of not seeing everyone. One thing I love about Firezone would be that they have this seperation for smokers and non-smoker users which I appreciate as I never really enjoyed the smell of cigarettes. To spice up our experience, we just had to book ourselves the VIP room which was really pleasant as the space is huge, and it even comes with this old school mike where you can imagine yourself taking center stage when you're singing. Gotta say we had a blast!

Onde-onde



Got a little thirsty after all the singing, so we made a pit stop at one of my favorite places, Onde-onde. They serve amazing variety when it comes to Nyonya food, and I love how consistent their dishes are served. Considering we made a pit stop here during tea time, I just had to cool off with their ABC accompanied by the kuih muih's that were really colorful for the picture. Just to name a few on what we ordered, we had Sago Gula Melaka, Cendol Gila Melaka, ABC, Aromatic Rojak Buah, Cucur Sayur, Belacan Eggplant Chips, Keropok Lekor, and aneka Kuih Muih which pretty much was great for sharing! 

Baskin Robbins


While exploring the new changes in the mall, we passed by Baskin Robbins and couldn't resist checking out their latest promotion offering a little something with the theme of minions! They had a pretty good array of limited-time minion offers on the menu, but I guess I had to go for the classic pint-size ice cream to bring home cause I wanted to enjoy it with the fam bam. Also, take note that there's this banana ice cream flavor that I think is pure genius! I mean, we all love banana boat sundaes, but banana ice cream... that's a whole new level of ba-na-na glory! 

Movie Time


Also, I actually never knew that Citta Mall had a cinema, and we explored the top floor where they actually had GSC as their tenant! Initially, we didn't really plan to watch a movie, but heck when we saw that GSC was offering new recipes on their popcorn, who could really resist? haha. I mean, I haven't watched a movie in agest since I had kids, so why not just live the moment to the fullest right? So, while exploring the hallways, I notice that this has to be one of the most colorful cinemas that I've been to. Even the cinema hall is different than your common cinema hall. Considering watching a movie, but misusing out the movie crowd? Citta Mall is the place to be. 

Peak Fitness


Believe it or not, after all the hectic activities that we've done, I actually planned a fitness session with Miriam to do a HIT workout together. I mean, being a mom and all, I never really have the luxury to work out at my own time, so here I am making time after all the indulging from Original Kayu and Onde Onde. I gotta say that this isn't my first time at Peak Fitness, and the reason why I love this place is that it's super private, and the crowd is pretty much 'less intimidating if you know what I mean. haha. Nevertheless, I had a good workout session with the trainers and of course with close friends. Great place to plan a fun workout together. 

Common Ground

Got some work to do? Common Ground is one of my favorite places to be when it comes to co-working spaces. If you're already familiar with the providers, did you know that Common Ground at Citta Mall happens to be the largest co-working space in Malaysia? With a pantry, unlimited internet access, and the ability to participate in Common Ground networking events, it's definitely a great place if you're doing self-entrepreneurship or simply just handling a small SME business that might just grow when you meet someone while you're there. I'd like to say that Common Ground is where miracles happen (in my case, getting my job done for the day).

Ohsem Chai

If you're a lover of tea, Ohsom Chai is something you would want to check out. They offer authentic blends of CTC Black tea with natural herbs & spices (that comes with a variety of health benefits too!). brewed the traditional classic way to give you nothing but the authentic flavors that we all love from chai tea. So while you're there, be sure to check this out. 

To conclude our day, i personally find Citta Mall one of the safest malls to explore with family and friends since they strictly follow the SOP during this pandemic to prevent any infections. Would i recommend to shop and dine in at Citta Mall? I would say a big fat yes! I really felt safe and best of all, they had all the things i wanted to do while i was there. Its a great place for families too considering the mall is friendly for family with kids, which also assures me that i would want to take my family out (when in need) at Citta Mall. Well, i hope you found this blog post usefull. Till my next outing to another mall. xx

MF by GCDC Won Malaysia High Court Ruling Over Illegal Goods


In light to the recent incident where goods produced and labelled with Mike Frederiqo had been seized in Malaysia for illegal acts according to the Malaysia High Court, MF by GCDC has won its court case as their goods were accused wrongly for being pirated and infringed the trademark’s policies.

Mr. Huang said “Brand or Label by Mike Frederiqo is trademarked and solely owned by Mr Huang, brand owner of MF by GCDC, who worked together with Mike Frederiqo for nearly six years from October 2013 to May 2019. I take a serious approach on any accusation, defamation & damage towards our brand and have then issued a statement in June this year to clarify on the issue.”

Mr. Huang has then invited many illustrators and designers to form a new MF design team and rename the brand MF by GCDC to avoid confusion. MF here stands for Made in Future to express the future of pop culture, seize the trend of the new era fashion trend and convey the spirit of creating a popular brand.

MF by GCDC, has evolved from a designer brand to a true lifestyle fashion brand with accessories and items showcasing a whole new attitude of life. MF by GCDC brings various artists across the communities together and builds a brand new platform aiming to spur up more inspirations and ideas with different creative ways globally.

[REVIEW] SIMPLYSITI's Reflection of Perfection Cosmetics

SimplySiti has grown to be well known and loved by the citizens of Malaysian beauty enthusiasts, especially when it comes to her cosmetics. To celebrate the growth of SimplySiti's current collection, the brand has introduced a whole new range that has been inspired to be a reflection of perfection. SimplySiti has been in the industry for over 11 years in Malaysia and now has been very well known to suit all types of Asian skin. 

Within the range, I would have to say that the beauty of the range is that it offers a matte finish, which definitely is a trending texture when it comes to cosmetics. Not only that it has been designed and formulated to leave a matte finish, but also leaves your skin a natural finish as well. With this launch, SimplySiti hopes to regain its business back on track again as the brand has suffered a tremendous loss during the pandemic. 

On top of that, coming back into the industry with a big bang, SimplySiti has appointed a new brand ambassador, Zahra Zura Aziza Zahanor who happens to be a UITM student. She was chosen among 700 other participants in a competition to be the face of SimplySiti. She is the first ambassador appointed by the brand and will continuously be promoting the range by SimplySiti. So don't be surprised when you see her on shelves in stores.

The beauty of the beauty range would be that it's designed to be easy for Muslim women, especially when it comes to preparing for prayers each time. The range has been scientifically proven and clinically approved to be Halal Certified. Dato' Sri Siti Nurhaliza is happy that loyal users have been continuously supporting the brand and she is happy to ensure that the brand is easily accessible by ensuring that it's available not only in retail but also through Shopee as well. 

REVIEW

Considering that the range is new, I just had to get my hands on it to really test it out myself. Among the items that I'll be reviewing today would be their Eye Shadow Palette, powder blush, mascara, miracle sunscreen, semi-matte lipstick, eyeliner, loose powder, two-way cake, and liquid foundation. Since there is a lot within the range, I'll be basically concluding my thoughts on each of them and i'll also be sharing a few swatches for you to check out through this review as well. 

SimplySiti Cushion Foundation



Starting with the Cushion foundation, they offer 3 different types of shades, but I got mine in medium which is like the in-between shade from light and tan. With such minimal choices, I was initially a little reluctant to give it a go, but when I swatched it, I noticed that the shade blends in with my skin really well! Having oily-combination skin, I love that it feels light-textured, and it has this blurry effect to give it a natural finish. It's also water-resistant, making it perfect for traveling, and not to forget that it has SPF 50 as well to protect the skin from harsh UV rays. 

SimplySiti Matte Lipstick



Next would be the Matte Lipstick which is to die for. Usually, I'm not a fan of matte lipstick considering that it usually leaves the lips dry and flaky, but this is a whole new formulation! The texture is creamy, pigmented, and most importantly, moisturizing! It has a pretty good balance of oil and wax, to ensure that it keeps the lips hydrated and nourished. What more can you really ask for from a Matte Lipstick? I did a test today but forgot to take pictures, and I would say it's pretty long-lasting for up to 12 hours!

SimplySiti Powder Blush



I've been needing a blusher and i have to confess that its one of the toughest things to bring around when you need a brush to bring with you if your blusher comes in a palatte. Lucky enough, SimplySiti found a solution for this problem. The blusher comes in a puff blusher form which makes it really easy to apply it over the cheeks. Despite it being in puff form, the shade is well pigmented, so after applying, i noticed that it instantly lisfts and softens the application making it a quick on-the-go blush check when youre really rushing. The shades offered are really luxurious and i got mine in shade____ which suits my skintone really well. 

SimplySiti Eye Shadow Palette



The Eye Shadow Palette comes in nude natural tones which makes it pretty good for everyday use. The shades came in a really good combination to suit and create day looks, and even night looks, depending on your creativity. But really, if youre wondering if its pigmented, here are some swatches for you to see. The swatch i did is a one time swatch and i would say that the pigment is pretty good. Its not as strong, but the good side of this is that its easily blendable and you can basically layer it depending on how thick you want your eye shadow to be. For endless eyeshadow creations, this has provided the perfect formula. 


SimplySiti Eye Liner


As simple as it is, the eye liner is a retractable eyeliner which saves you from the typical eye pencil that you have to constantly sharp before using it. I did a swatch test and im impressed with how pigmented it is! Literally i did not put too much effort when it comes to pressing the eye liner on, but man, this is good stuff! It's easy to navigate since its thin enough to fill in the eye, and it's also smudge proof, giving you less worries when it comes to contact with water. 

Verdict

In terms of pricing, i would say that its extremely affordable for the quality that it offers. If you have to ask which product would be my top 3 from the range, i would definitely say it would be the cushion foundation, the powder blush, and the semi matte lipstick. The finish over the skin is amazing, and i must say that it stays on the skin pretty well throughout the day. No smudges, no sudden unevenness, and the appearance on skin overall is satisfying. If you would like to get your hands on it as well, be sure to get it from shopee or in selected pharmacies!
