KL City Dentists ; Your Neighbourhood Clinic

KL City Dentists
So, when was the last time you went to see the dentist? I decided to check out KL City Dentists and at the same time get my teeth checked. If you haven't heard of KL City Dentists, its located within the heart of Kuala Lumpur, and i can confidently say that this would be your neighbourhood dentist if youre living around Kuala Lumpur. Do scroll down to find out why.

Entrance to KL City Dentists
Entrance to KL City Dentists
Located in Menara HSC, which is also known as a private hospital in KL located at Jalan Ampang. Other than offering comprehensive health screening packages, they also have a dental clinic located on the 7th floor. Parking was not at all difficult, and i love how the lift directly brings you to the clinic without any registration at the reception required.

Clinic Reception area
Waiting area
Cozy interior
I have to say that my first impression when i entered the clinic, it didnt feel like a clinic at all. First it was because this clinic has a birds eye view of KL and the fact that it felt really cosy with comfy chairs, and a tv to entertain you while you wait. Pretty fancy huh? For your information, KL City Dentists provides general dental services and and also oral  surgery services.

Self Service anyone?
Variety of drinks they offer
Who doesnt love free wi-fi?!
Not to forget that you can help yourself with some drinks if youre thirsty too. And just look at the options! Hehe. But of course, the clinic wouldn't be complete without having free wifi right? So yes, free wifi is also available at the clinic. I've set my appointment at 4pm, and i didnt even need to wait long till it was my turn. But before proceeding to see the doctor, i was required to fill a registration form for documentation purposes.

The Dental Room
Gadgets are clean and organised
The dental room where all the dental services happen was really jaw dropping cause it felt really welcoming compared to the usual scary 'someone is about to pull out my teeth' scenery. LOL. With the view of the buildings in KL, it was rather relaxing to get myself to sit on the dental chair and be prepared for my check up.

I was given glasses to wear while im on the chair
Youtube anyone? 
As i was seated, they gave me these glasses to wear so that the light from the chair doesnt glare my eyes, which is a first time experience for me to be offered to wear these glasses to protect my eyes. And also, my dental chair had a flat screen tv attached to it. So while i was waiting for the doctor to get ready, i managed to enjoyed watching youtube videos to calm down my nerves. hehe

Checking time!
Spot the decay T.T
Work space for the doctor
X-ray of my teeth.
As mentioned earlier, im here for a dental check up to see how my teeth are doing. From the pictures above, i think you can spot a decay on one of my tooth which really shocked me when the doctor showed it to me on the screen. He said that it was just an early sign of decay due to the anatomy of my tooth, thus i didnt need to worry much if i get that checked right away. This clinic also had the latest technology of an x-ray machine which took merely 5 minutes to produce me with photos. and GOODNEWS! My decay wasnt touching the inner part of the tooth, which means there is still a chance of recovery.

Smiling with signs of relief
The doctor was also nice enough to clean and polish my teeth to get it clean too. It took about less than 15 minutes for him to clean it, and i truly appreciate the fact that he was very gentle while cleaning. It was also really pleasant that he also took the effort to tell me the reason to each action he takes.

Meet the handsome Dr. Mong
And meet the the doctor himself, Dr. Mong Xeng Tien who checked and cleaned my teeth while i was there for my check up. Dont you think he's young and handsome? ;) HAHA. He happens to be one of the friendliest doctors i've ever met, and he was really considerate on each action he took. And if youre reading this, thanks Dr. Mong for the excellent service.

Brochures and services
Opening hours
    His clinic also specialises in whitening if youre looking for whiter teeth, and he has tons of options to choose from depending on your budget. I could tell that the equipment he used were only the best quality and he really care's about making sure the patient understands the procedures taken. If you would want to get your teeth checked, be sure to call for appointment, cause i believe that he is usually booked almost everyday. So, to avoid disappointments, do give their clinic a call ;)

    Dentists of KL City Dentist
    So there you have it! I dont think i'll go to any other clinic after knowing that his services are really good! Funfact: His mom who is also a dentist works in the same clinic too! So you can say that its a family business which you'll be supporting if youre going there. Thats all for now, and of course, for other details on the clinic, be sure to visit for the latest updates on services and promotions.

Custom DIY at Printcious

Create your own gifts.
Hello again, and this time im back to share to you about how to get your custom designs done from Printcious. If you heard about Printcious, you can always refer back to my 'valanetines day with printcious' post to get a brief introduction on their services. And in this post, i'll be bringing you through my shopping experience of purchasing something for myself. Woohoo!

Steps to start creating
As you enter the site, you will notice a create button on the top left, followed by categories to choose from. Printcious provides services to custom your own tshirt, mug, cushions, phone cases, ceramic tiles, puzzles, mouse pads and mini tees! In my case right here, i decided to choose to make a custom cushion.

Click the customise it button.
Once you click the cushion tab, it will bring you to another page showing various options on what you want to do. If you're not interested in buying yourself a no print pillow, you can follow the steps on i did by clicking the customise it button.

Editing page.
When you click the customised it button, it will bring you to another window showing you exactly what you see in the above picture. You have your own options to add text, add image, or anything else, as long as the system recognises the file format.

Upload an image of your choice
Resize your image within the safety lines.
I didnt want to get too complexed, so i decided to just add an image which was already in my desktop. So all you need to do is to click add image, upload your desired image, click your selected image and insert it to the editing page. Once its in the editing page, you can decrease or increase the size based on your liking within the green box.

Check the details of your purchase.
Checkout procedure.
Once youre happy with your design, add it into your cart and confirm your purchase by proceeding to checkout. You may be required to fill in your address, select a shipping method, and payment method during your checkout. If all the procedure went smoothly, you will receive an email to inform you that they've received your order! On a side note, i had to pay an additional RM8 on shipping since my purchase was below RM75.

Confirmation email
I think its great that they'll also notify you once your parcel is delivered so that you'll know when to expect it! Just on a personal side, i received a phone call from them saying that my image sent was pixelated, and they requested me to send another picture with higher resolution. THIS SERVICE was the highlight! I dont think many similar providers would take the effort to give you a call to inform you that your image is pixelated. Good job Printcious!

The moment of truth! 
Materials of the cushion.
The parcel arrived after 3 working days, and i have to say that it was really fast! And of course, my cushion came with an inner microfiber which looks like the image above. I wasnt a fan of the inner microfiber, but thankfully the case is not attached to it, which means i can change the inner to my preferred cushion!

40cm x 40cm // 20cm x 20cm print area
Print quality
The size was exactly as how it was described on the website, and i was really impressed with the print! I decided to get white, cause it matches easily with anything at home. The print quality was really good cause i was initially expecting a stick on kind of print, but this was as if the cloth was printed together with the design. MAJOR LOVE!

The actual photo of my cushion pillow!
And there you have it! Liking my new pillow throw pillow for my bed? hehe. I dont know about you, but it adds a little hipster feel to my home with quotes like this. It defeats the hassle of looking for a pillow with my preferred quote. LOL. So, thank you for spending your time to read my humble blog. Till my next post! To order your own custom design, you can always head to to order yours today!

Handmade Body Scrub // Princess Malaysia

Scrub Review Time!
Since im going through my semester break, i decided to give my self a DIY pampering session at home. I've been eager to use this since last year but finally giving this a go since i heard a lot of good things about this! If you havent heard about Princess Malaysia, its actually a Malaysian product. *raises hand* Proud Malaysian right here! hehe. And if youre here to know more about the product, well scroll away!


Princess Happiness - Full Size, 325ml, RM35
Citrus and coconut
First up for review would be the Princess Happiness which is handmade with citrus and coconut. If you havent noticed, the jar label says that its an all in one body scrub which i assume that it can be used from head to toe depending on your liking. From a first impression it has like bits of sugar, citrus and shaved coconut, but omg, im not usually a fan of citrus scents, but it was to therapeutic to just get a sniff of this.

Close up shot
Here's a close up shot of the product itself where you can spot some bits of dried citrus and shaved coconut within the product. On a side note, i would suggest you to use a spoon to scoop out the scrub if you need to use it for hygienic purposes and also to make sure that you product stays fresh to last longer.


Texture when mixed with water
After a minute of scrubbing
Before After shot
Just for testimonial purposes, i decided to use my brothers hand to test out the scrub. I applied a dash of scrub onto his hand and mixed it with water to scrub it down easier. Since this product contains citrus chunks, do expect that it might be a little sticky after exposing it to water. I gave a good minute of scrubbing and once it was smooth and clean, i told my brother to wash his hands. From the before and after photo, i think you can pretty much tell that the after effect looks and feels smoother compared to the left hand. Im not too sure if its clear, but my brother hand was even fairer than the other after scrubbing.


Princess Glorious - Full Size, 325ml, RM35
Rose, Virgin Coconut and olive oil
Next would be the Princess Glorious which is handmade with rose,virgin coconut and olive oil. I would say that every women would enjoy like this! The smell wasnt as strong as the Princess Happiness, but the texture was definitely more smoother than the Citrus mix. The rose scent wasnt as strong despite since the coconut scent was stronger. Either way, it still smells amazing.

Close up shot.
Here's a close up shot of the product itself where you can spot some bits of dried rose petals and shaved coconut within the product. Again as a reminder, i would suggest you to use a spoon to scoop out the scrub if you need to use it for hygienic purposes and also to make sure that you product stays fresh to last longer.  I dont know if you realise, but the texture for this seems to be more fine compared to the citrus scrub.

Texture once mixed with water
Results to smoother fairer skin
When you mix the scrub with water, the scrub was definitely more finer than the citrus scrub. When giving a good scrub on the skin, it felt very gentle on the skin effortlessly. The scent isnt as strong as the citrus scrub, but if youre not looking for the scent, this would be the choice for you. I particularly have sensitive skin, so generally prefer using this product more.


As a verdict, i would say that both products are equally as good, depending on what you want. Princess Happiness is slightly rougher than the Princess Glorious, so if you have stubborn skin or if you want to really scrub all the dirt and dead skin cells off, go for Princess Happiness. But on a more often usage, i would highly recommend the Princess Glorious! These scrubs are made from scratch and i could tell that they were use with the best quality of organic ingredients.

Hint: Both are usable for bathtubs as well.

The pricing of the scrubs are really reasonable where a full size of 325grams is RM35 and if you prefer smaller sizes you can always go for the travel size of 175grams which is available at RM15. The best part is, they provide FREE SHIPPING NATIONWIDE! For more details, head on over to their Facebook Page at Princess Malaysia. Also do visit their official website at

Unboxing CubeCrate ; January 2016

Unboxing review
Hey guys, let me just start by asking you if you like surprises? If you do, well youre at the right post! After months of being so curious about CubeCrate, i finally got my first CubeCrate parcel in January 2016! If you havent heard about CubeCrate, you can always visit their website which i will provide the link below at the end of this post.

Each CubeCrate parcel, comes in a standard box size.
Each CubeCrate package comes in a 16'' X 16'' sized box and and FYI, its actually a mystery box subscription! So if you love getting new items, and surprises, this would be for you! And in this post, i'll be writing a review about what i got in my January 2016 CubeCrate box. YAY! Each box of CubeCrate comes in 3 types of subscriptions, where you can either choose to sign up for 1 month at RM35, 3 months at RM90 including postage, and for 6 months at RM 197 including postage.

Sneak Peek!
Upon unboxing, this is what you'll see. Its not entirely filled up to the top, but you will see a few teasers here and there on what you'll be getting. And personally, i think i love that the colours upon unboxing cause it really brings up the spirit of the festive season coming up, which is Chinese New Year! hehe

Advertisers for January 16
click image to enlarge.
Chinese New Year treats! 
Each parcel has this pamphlet which shows the advertisers for each month and for this month, the pamphlet shows some information on where youre getting your product from.  And because its chinese new year coming up soon, they actually gave me a cute little note in an angpow and a fortune cookie! How cute! hehe


A keychain from Batik Boutique 
Cute earrings from Pottsie Pottie
A cute lip balm from the Sabun 
Super moist lotion with hyaluronic acid  from My Care
A pedi bomb from Smeeka
A service voucher worth RM180 from Beyond Beauty
I havet till end of Feb to use this!
And tadaa! Thats about it in my box for January '16. I dont know about you, but its definitely worth more than RM35 which was the amount for each box. As an individual (and a blogger), i have to admit that i love receiving and discovering new products, especially when its a Malaysian brand. With the economy going down, i think its about time we contribute by supporting Malaysian businesses!  And by the looks of it, i can tell that brands like Smeeka , the sabun and Batik Boutique has really put a lot of thought and quality in producing the product :)

An overall photo of the products received. 
And there you have it! I tried my best to keep the post clean and easy for you to read and i really hope you enjoyed spending your time at my humble blog. Till then, do check out my other post and be sure to visit to reward yourself with something exciting each month! Its a great way to show your love and support towards small brands, and it benefits you by making you know more things that other people dont *wink

Till my next post,
