5 Reasons to switch to Yoodo | BEST THING I'VE EVER DID!

Okay, so i've been a user of another telco for more than 10 years, but after switching to Yoodo about 2 years go, i would have to say that its the best decision i've done and wished Yoodo existed way earlier. I know it may not be all out on the billboard for those who are not familiar with Yoodo, but trust me, when you switch, you will definitely know why tons of people love it even more! I would say among other telco's offered in Malaysia, this has to be my best decision. Here are some reasons why i love it so much~

1. Be the boss of your own plan


First off, i hated the rigid plan options offered by telco's. What makes Yoodo impressive is that they let you decide on what you want which makes it amazing! From paying RM90 a month, i now only pay RM50 a month according to my needs and thats like RM40 worth of savings! Imagine multiplying that throughout a duration of 2 years. Huge savings in the long run. 

2. Manage it on an App

Since i travel a lot, it can be annoying to drop to the office to get your number to be international friendly. but with Yoodo, you do you all through an app! Lets say your current plan with Yoodo has been fully utilised, you can still add on and the amount based on your needs till your next renewal. I also love how you can use your current data, voice calls and messages even when youre overseas. They charge about RM10 a day if youre overseas which makes in convenient to keep your contacts close and connected. 

3. Change your Plan, Anytime, Anywhere

So, lets say youre in need of more voice calls and data for a month. Fret not, just open the app and adjust your current plan and you're updated with the latest plan of your choice. Trust me, this freedom is amazing when you have an unpredictable lifestyle. I have days when my internet is down for a month, and had to rely on Yoodo, and that actually saved me from boredom. Thank god for their app that makes it easy to manage. 

4. Effortless switch from your current telco

Are you tempted to switch already? Did i mention that all you need to do it to download the app and you'll be instantly given the choice to keep your number or choose your new number under Yoodo? Whats even better is the transition to change from another telco to Yoodo. I did not need to stop at any centres to get this done, and im pretty impressed how smooth the transition was as the sim card is delivered right to your doorstep within a few days. Talk about a quick switch~

5. Go cashless with your phone bills

I used to really depend on phone bills and top up cards to get my phone bills managed. But now with Yoodo, they allow me to pay my bills by simply using my debit card which is super easy to manage. Yes, no one entirely likes the auto-debit charges, but trust me, with the amount of money youre saving and the notifications that you'll get from Yoodo when youre charged, i believe they have gained my trust and has never overcharged me compared to some telco's i've dealt with. 

So, now that you've seen my reasonings, dont you think its about time you give Yoodo a go? Remember, all you need to do is download the Yoodo app and use my refferal code to get an extra RM20 into your Yoodo wallet with additional 7GB data! If youre not looking to switch, maybe just request a phone number from them which they will deliver to you at no cost, and give it a go. Trust me, once youre hooked, you'll never look at any other Telco provider ever.

1 Mont Kiara Offers a Shopping Delivery Platform

Being a regular shopper at 1 Mont Kiara, i would have to say that im happy to see that they have developed their own Digital Platform to offer shoppers boundless options when it comes to getting their errands and shopping done at this neighbourhood mall, 1 Mont Kiara. The idea behind this would basically provide shoppers an option to just simply tap their purchases from the comfort of their homes by accessing the platform via the mall's websites at www.1mk.com.my.


If you are already familiar with the retailers at 1 Mont Kiara, you can now shop at your convenience to get your merchandises by retailers who operate at 1 Mont Kiara, from browsing to making purchases online. Be it if its a bowl of salad to cooking your facial or manicure sessions at the saloons, you can simply do it at the convenience of just your fingertips. With the covid-19 changing the ways we live our lifes, its godo to know that 1 Mont Kiara has taken an initiative to make it easier for shoppers to enjoy the benefits of their retailers without taking any risk. 

With that being said, you can now get your food and purchases to be delivered from the mall to the comfort of their homes. Currently there are 30 participating stores onboard and the website has really easy access to browse through the wide selection of merchandises of the retailers. On top of that, you can now also enjoy bulk purchases from different stores in just one delivery. Talk about convenience am i right?



Well, cutting down to the chase if you dont know where to start, i have some retailers in mind that you can consider browsing through the 1 Mont Kiara website. Honestly, when at 1 Mont Kiara, i really enjoy Pastryville as they offer tasty and healthy pastries. Offering timeless traditions of French baking techniques, the pastries that they have to offer are baked fresh daily. Since i recently visited the outlet, i would advice you to try their hot cocoa  and brownies. Its literally not to sweet, and it has a fine touch to enhance your day. 




For facials and skincare needs, i advise you to check out Reviderm Skinmedics that offers a connection between medicine and cosmetics to find a solution to solve your skin concerns. With certified skinmedics being present at Reviderm Skinmedics, you know your skin would be at good hands. You can make appointments or browse through their choice of skincare products that they have to offer. Honestly i havent managed to give their products a go myself, but i definitely heard that their products are full proof when it comes to giving you better skin. 




If you have a party coming up, did you know that Bom Bom Print & Party Shop has got you covered? This shop in particular specialises in party supplies, gifts, novelties, name card prinitng, and flyer printing service makin gthe shop an ideal location to get your printing and party errands done. To me, since i have a kid at home, the 1 Mont Kiara website is a perfect platform for me to get my party planning done without the need of leaving the house. That would just save me so much more time and energy when its just a few clicks away for it to be delivered directly to my house. 





And last but not least would be AM Skin Factories. I usually go here to get my hair removal treatments  done, but considering its covid-19, it may be a little risky to be out too often. So, they may not be able to provide the services to your home, but i can say that they have a pretty good range of products that are imported all the way from Japan. Alternatively, if you prefer the services offered at AM Skin Factories for hair removal treatments, then you can actually make an appointment and get a special deal when you book through www.1mk.com.my. Skip the physical visit and maximise your time with this feature.

I decided to order the set which comes with soup, pak choy and chicken rice to make it a perfect complete meal, and i was surprised that the portion is big! Honestly, if you are not a heavy eater, 1 plate of Grilled Butter Chicken can actually be shared with 2.

The presentation of the chicken is pretty unique and i love the smell of it when it arrived to the table. It had this really tempting layer of crispy skin, covered with buttery cream infused with curry leaves and red chili. The chicken served was boneless, making it really enjoyable to bite on every bite i can get without worrying about any bones. And in case youre wondering what my first bite experience was, it was definitely a mouthwatering one! Seriously, the first bite pretty much says it all and the beauty of this entire dish would be the sauce.

What To Do, Car Was Flooded

Driving through a flooded area can be a major nightmare for many drivers. Excess exposure to water can wreak serious havoc to your vehicle, affecting how it looks and its mechanics. If your car is exposed to excess water, here is a guide for you to help caution the situation.

  

Do Not Start The Car 

Most importantly, attempt to dodge flooded areas. On the off chance that you spot water on the road, it's better to turn around and take another route. The water might be much deeper than it looks. The most common flood deaths happen when vehicles are crashed into floodwater. So the first thing to do is do not start the car. This reminder must not be taken lightly because if water gets into the engine, transmission, or fuel system, it'll only worsen the situation. Water can damage every single component inside the car; if you try to turn the engine on and more water enters, it can cause 'hydro lock,' when the pistons fail to compress and move as they should. In case the car is hydro locked, you're facing a high cost of repair bills, and in severe cases, you might be looking at getting a new car.


Drain The Water 

Don't wait any further; try to drain the water in your car. The longer your car is filled up with water, the more damage it can cause. It would be best if you were as fast as possible because the mechanical components are the first things that can get damaged. Immediately it's safe to go in the car; you need to start the drying process.  


Aerate The Car 

Once you have effectively drained out the water from the vehicle, you should work quickly to dry out the affected areas. In the case where there is sufficient sunlight close to your vehicle's parking spot, you need to lower the windows, open all the doors, and let the warmth from the sun-dry the car. If there isn't adequate sunlight, you can leave your vehicle in an open space and utilize an electric table or standing fan for drying out the wet areas. The fan will likewise help eliminate any bad scents and will help prevent moles. If your vehicle was not seriously flooded, but the cabin stayed wet, you can utilize the radiators in your car to dry the interiors rapidly and, Whenever possible, bring the seats and cushions outside to dry.
 
You should also check the following.

• The engine oil
• The oil and oil filter
• The fuel system
• The air filter
• The electrical systems


File a Claim

The next thing for you to do is to file a claim with your insurance company. They will check if your policy covers the flood damage. Depending on your insurance coverage, the damage could very well be covered by your insurance company. They will also be able to tell you if they're going to pay to have your car fixed after checking it out or not. If there has been a large flood, car insurance companies will automatically total cars that have endured flood damage. So you might not be the only one trying to make a claim; therefore, you'll need to be patient.
 
They do this because there are so many shrouded issues with these vehicles that could spring up later and cost them a fortune. So, as a rule, they prefer to total flood-damaged vehicles rather than attempting to have them fixed.


Conclusion 

If your car is swept into a flood, try not to panic and stay calm. Follow these means and act proactively. Don't consequently expect that everything is lost, we suggest that you have a professional take a look at the car just in case!

[BEAUTY REVIEW] Prettian Skincare

Being a beauty enthusiast, I would have to say that Prettian did a good job of getting my attention. If this is your first time hearing about Prettian, then let me spill the details. Prettian originates from Korea and has been formulated to suit Asian skin. We all know how advanced Korean technology is when it comes to K-beauty, so without any hesitation, I told myself that I just had to give this a go! Some fun facts on the brand, Prettian is actually derived from the word Pretty + Angel, in result becoming Prettian. 

Prettian has been co-developed with Skin Meds which involved 17 domestic doctors. The products have also gone through various clinical tests to ensure that it's safe for consumers to use preventing any skin irritation, sebum improvement, pore improvement, and basically overall skin appearance. Prettian's currently offers 3 products within their range, offering the Triple Oil Cleanser, Moisturizing Cream, and Silky Brightening Cream. Now, let's break it down a little if youre interested to know more about each product. 

Prettian Triple Oil Cleanser 



Starting off with the Prettian Triple Oil Cleanser, it has been formulated with tropical acai berry, witch hazel, sage, and their secret ingredient. Upon my first impression when I took it out of the box, I would have to say that the color of the layers attracted my attention making me feel really excited to give this a go. From the list of ingredients, I can tell that this product goes beyond your average oil cleanser. It claims to effectively remove waterproof makeup residue, pollutants, and other impurities without drying out the skin after cleansing. I believe that deep cleansing is one of the most important characteristics of a cleanser that we have to really keep an eye on. It comes in a 150ml pump bottle which I appreciate as pump bottles would usually keep the product fresh for very use while preventing contamination. 



Having oily combination skin, oil cleansers are not entirely a fan of oil cleansers, but after trying this one out, I would have to say that I love how it feels on my skin. Not only that it effectively removes waterproof makeup, but what i love about it is also the fact that it cleanses really well without leaving that tight after cleansed feeling. Despite going through deep cleaning with the triple oil cleanser, my skin still feels very well hydrated. I was expecting it to be a little more on the oily side, but surprisingly it washes off really easily without leaving the skin feeling as oily as i thought it would. Consider an oil cleanser when its from Prettian! 

Prettian Moisturizing Cream



The next product i tried would be the Prettian Moisturizing Cream. The main attraction over this cream that i had was the fact that they used tangerine, ecklonia cava, and honey as their main ingredients. I would assume they used some snail mucin in it considering that theres an image of a snail on the box of this cream. This moisturizer claims to keep your skin moisturised to give you youthful and healthy skin. It comes in a tub casing containing 50ml of cream. I usually would like to apply this after each cleanse using a spatula to prevent contamination of the product.


I'm very particular with moisturizers and im honestly really happy to find that this moisturizer feels really good on the skin. The texture is creamy, but when you apply it on the skin, it's well absorbed by the skin leaving a very lightweight feel. I experienced slight irritation on my skin about a week ago, but when I applied this cream, it really soothes out the skin. Pro-tip, I like to apply a lighter layer of this during the daytime, but at night when my skin feels drier than usual, I would apply a slightly thicker amount. Trust me, you'll love your skin when you wake up the next morning. 

Prettian Silky Brightening Cream


And to complete the skincare regime, we have the Prettian Silky Brightening Cream to give the skin an extra glow. At a first impression, you may think this is a brightening cream, but after using the product, I would say that this is more of a corrector cream rather than brightens. Don't get me wrong, it does brighten the skin, it's just that it's more focused on lightening pigmentations and acne scars. Because it 'brightens' these dark spots that I have on my skin, I would say that it does a pretty good job of brightening the skin along the way. It comes in a 60ml tube bottle and I would usually dab about a pea size on my finger before spreading it over my skin. 


The fact that it comes in a tube bottle, I would have to say it's really easy to control the amount of cream that you need. You can choose to either apply this all over your face or at targetted areas, but if youre asking me, I just apply throughout my face in hopes to get a more even skin tone as a result. I've been using this for about a week now, and i would have to say that it does give my skin a better glow than before I started using it. The texture is creamy, but as you spread it over your face, you'd be surprised at how lightweight it feels. 

Verdict


As a verdict of this Prettian Skincare, I would have to say that im pretty impressed with the products. They may be pretty new in the market, but when it comes to quality and result oriented products, I can confidently say that their products are formulated to target your skin concerns. I love how minimal the range is making it less complicated to keep up with. The price for the triple oil cleanser would be RM128, whereas for the Moisturizing cream and the Brightening cream it's going for RM108 each. You may think these are a little more pricey comparing to drug store skincare, but rest assured, the price youre paying for is actually reflecting the quality of the ingredients. After a week of using their products, I would say that I do see visible improvements in my skin condition in which I can conclude to recommend you to try this skincare range out. For more details on Prettian, feel free to check out their official website for more info.
