Metrojaya Is Now In SEA's First Lalaport in KL!


Being a 90's baby, i cant deny that Metrojaya has been a part of my childhood and im happy to share with you that now they have expanded with a new outlet in Lalaport Bukit Bintang City Centre. Metrojaya being in the retail industry for more than four decades, i cant be happier to find out that they have unveiled their next-gen store for their loyal shoppers. Yes, you heard that right, it has a next-gen setting, so it definitely give a more younger and trendier experience when you're shopping. FYI, the most recent line-up of collection would include exclusive products from renowned brands such as Bill Keith, Yani Bakhtiar and Cynthia Tang, some of which are only available in LaLaport Metrojaya. Just more reasons to get you excited for a visit! 




Cant deny that it's trategically located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Metrojaya offers shoppers a wide variety of selections from fashion to furnishing to cater to the various needs of its customers. Metrojaya’s refreshing next-gen store taps into global trends complete your aspirations for modern living with its trendsetting lifestyle products, which include house brands such as East India Company, Somerset Bay, Cape Cod and Living Quarters apart from its exclusive collections. While i was there to snap some pictures, i would have to say that im pretty impressed with the collections!


Apart from showcasing chic lifestyle products, Metrojaya LaLaport will be the first store to have a cozy coffee cart to enhance the customers' shopping experience along with unique Instagrammable spots to capture memorable moments. I personally think that this would be a highlight for the men as they would be given an opportunity to enjoy coffee while their other half hunts for good bargains in the store. Hehe. Alternatively, it would be great to have a cup of coffee if you're running low on energy before getting some shopping done. 





There's no doubt that Metrojaya has paid close attention to every detail, and i personally notice there an improvement of the atmosphere they have created for their customers. A noticeable unique feature in their latest store that I got excited about is to be their very own Spa room being available in the store. The setting is definitely asthetic and the collection that they offer would be considered premium but within an affordable range. It's definitely worth it to check it out as the concept to me is unique to Metrojaya. 




Metrojaya LaLaport is well connected and easily accessible via public transportation with access to Hang Tuah LRT and KL Monorail stations. It is only a five-minute walk from the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang line Merdeka station. Personally, i enjoy driving there as they also have ample parking bays underground. Need i say more? Be sure to checkout their latest store which offers you a seamless shopping experience! I know i enjoyed my mini shopping spree during their opening, and i know you would too!

Hada Labo's New Platinum Kotojyun Mask | Hydration & Whitening

With High Penetrating Serum, Infused with Premium Platinum Nanoparticles – 
The Sheet Mask Hydrates Skin from the Surface to the Inner Layers 


Hada Labo introduces for the first time, its all-new Platinum Kotojyun Mask, a revolutionary sheet mask that contains a high penetrating serum mask and is infused with premium platinum nanoparticles. The nanoparticles act as an anti-oxidant ingredient to protect the skin from environmental damage and also improve skin tone radiance. 


Each sheet mask is extremely breathable and comfortable as it is made of Bemliese®, a sustainable non-woven fabric that is made from cotton linter which can absorb and hold the skincare ingredients efficiently. Although the sheet mask contains only 23ml of serum, it is able to offer benefits that are equivalent to two bottles of serum thanks to the nanoparticles technology and Bemliese®, the non-woven fabric that allow deep penetration of the serum into the skin.

The high penetrating serum contains highly effective hydrating ingredients, which include Multiple types of Hyaluronic Acids, Ceramide and Squalene that fully hydrates skin from the surface to the inner layers, for a long lasting smooth and supple skin. It is pH balanced, free of alcohol, fragrance, colorant and mineral oil, therefore, it does not cause any skin irritation.

The Hada Labo Platinum Kotojyun Mask comes in two variants that provide different benefits to the skin:

Hada Labo Platinum Hydrating Kotojyun Mask (RM14.90) 


Functions to deeply hydrate skin for intense and long-lasting hydration. Infused with Platinum Nanoparticles and 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid (i.e Nano Hyaluronic Acid, Zinc Hydrolyzed Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid and Super Hyaluronic Acid) to effectively strengthen skin barrier and reduce fine lines for soft, smooth and supple skin.

Hada Labo Platinum Whitening Kotojyun Mask (RM14.90) 


Functions to deeply hydrate and revive dull skin for a fresh and radiant complexion. The Platinum Whitening Kotojyun Mask is infused with 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid (i.e Nano Hyaluronic Acid, Super Hyaluronic Acid, and Zinc Hydrolyzed Hyaluronate) and contains 2X brightening ingredients, i.e Tranexamic Acid and PMS Whitening Factor to effectively lighten dark spots and even out skin tone for bright glowing skin.

What makes it refreshing?


Well, when it comes to the face mask, what is there to really say? But this is a game changer because its super thin and literally I would say that I can feel that all the serum from the mask just transferred to my skin. I wish I took a before-after photo prior to wearing the mask but really on the first impression on this mask, I would say that it did a great job in making my skin feel hydrated with the extra perks of some glow. Honest opinion, this is hands down the most innovative best mask i've used by far! Recommended and i love how premium the mask feels. 

FYI, The Hada Labo Platinum Kotojyun Mask is now available for purchase at Shopee, Lazada and all leading pharmacies nationwide. Be sure to get it and pamper your skin when you see this on shelves. Im pretty sure this would be in demand real soon. You have been warned. Hehe

Mamee Chef Mi Goreng Rendang Legenda | Inspired bY Dato’ Sheila Majid


Im pretty sure that we all love Mamee Chef considering they offer the finest instant dishes when youre hungry but clueless on what to cook as a quick meal. Dont lie, i know you secretly crave for the Mamee Chef noodles just as much as i do at 1am in the morning. Hehe. Anyway, as the title highlights, they now have a new traditional cuisine flavour, RENDANG! Guess who will be flying to UK and bring a pack of these noodles just so indulge in Malaysian cuisine overseas? Me. haha

Now, Mamee Chef invites you to savour the authentic and legendary taste of rendang anytime you want in its all-new conveniently packed Mi Goreng Rendang Legenda!Inspired by Dato’ Sheila’s iconic song “Legenda”, Mamee Chef Mi Goreng Rendang Legenda resonates with her originality and authenticity in terms of its taste. As the homegrown brand’s first “goreng noodle” offering, Mi Goreng Rendang comes with Kruk Kruk (fried onions) and chilli rings in each pack. To enjoy, simply cook noodles in 400ml of boiling water for 3 minutes. When the noodles are ready, remove them from the pot, add the flavour and condiment packets, then mix well. 

“Malaysian Queen of Jazz” and Mamee Chef brand ambassador Dato’ Sheila Majid has performed all around the world, but to her, home is where she can enjoy her favourite food with her loved ones. “Rendang is a definite favourite in my family – my mother would often make this signature dish during celebrations, and we would all get together and catch up over a feast! In Malaysia, food is something that is close to our hearts; the legendary taste of rendang is enjoyed by everyone from all walks of life. With Mamee Chef Mi Goreng Rendang Legenda, my family and I can indulge in the rich aroma of authentic rendang, without having to wait for festive or special occasions!” shared Dato’ Sheila.

How Yuan Yi, Chief Marketing Officer of Mamee Double-Decker Sdn. Bhd., expressed her excitement about the unique Rendang Legenda flavour: “Most of the goreng instant noodles offered in the market today are limited to soy sauce-based or super-spicy flavours. Leveraging on our R&D capabilities at Mamee, combined with our understanding of Malaysians’ taste buds, we decided to develop a local, authentic flavour that all Malaysians know and love. With its rich blend of spices and creamy gravy, our Rendang Legenda flavour is perfect as a ‘mi goreng’ (goreng noodle). As a Malaysian brand made for Malaysians, we take pride in bringing people together through our continuous development of exciting food products!”


To celebrate the legendary launch of Mamee Chef Mi Goreng Rendang Legenda, Dato’ Sheila Majid and her daughter, hip-hop singer Kayda Aziz, have released a brand-new song! Watch the official music video for “Kenikmatan Legenda” on YouTube here. I personally enjoyed this video because its so malaysian and it definitely got me drooling for the Mamee Legenda. You have been warned to watch this video on an empty stomach, but if you insist, you are free to drool with me. Hehe

Mamee Chef Mi Goreng Rendang Legenda (RM6.90/pack of 4) is now available at hypermarkets and supermarkets nationwide, as well as online via Mamee’s Official Stores on Lazada and Shopee.

Children to explore Health Awareness with Kidzania | Play at KidZ's Health Variable Programme

A rare occasion of attending a launch with the kids!

As a mother of two now, nothing matters more than the health and well-being of my kids. I was honored to be invited to Kidzania's recent launch of a KidZ Health Variable Programme and trust me when I say that im excited about the news. As a mother now, Kidzania is a safe zone for my kids where there can learn and explore, and now with this program, they would be touching base on health and to me, small actions like this would really go a long way for the little ones. 

Only until 28th of August 2022, KidZania Kuala Lumpur's "KidZ & Health" initiative aims to raise awareness on health topics to show how good physiological health and wellbeing can indeed be a cornerstone to a wonderful and fulfilling life. With that being said, I believe in starting them young and I do hope that Kidzania would sustain interesting programs such as these to further let the kids be curious as they grow. 


As simple as talking about healthy habits, even to adults, it can be a seemingly an uninteresting topic. But have you ever thought about how this topic can actually be more interesting? I started being very cautious about what i eat considering that my family has a record of health issues, so to live a better life, it's always good to be aware of the lifestyle we choose to practice. For the kids, on the other hand, this topic can actually be more relatable and exciting with KidZania! The programme presents a line-up of activities set to educate little participants in fun and engaging ways through play. These activities are broken down into three segments – Nutrition, Health, and Fitness, where kids will partake in activities specially designed to arouse and engage the curiosity and interest of young, inquisitive minds. 


Little Mikayla here who is just turning 3 in a week found these programs really exciting actually as she explores the importance of hygiene through role play. Though the center would be more suitable for bigger kids, I was actually surprised by how intrigued a 3-year-old can be when it comes to being hands-on to understand simple things such as how sanitizer keeps germs away. As an adult, I would say that we should not underestimate the minds of the little ones we're raising, and my daughter here keeps surprising me every day because I let her. 

Leah Choy, 13yo baker Chef

By the way, present at the launch event was 13-year-old baker Chef Leah Choy - who realized the importance of championing good health from an early age. The young baker with a big heart made headlines with her inspiring story after she started baking and selling cupcakes at the tender age of age four to raise funds for her sister’s medical treatment. At the launch, Leah conducted a live demonstration of her very own nutritional recipe that can easily be replicated by any child or parent at home. She was joined by the newly appointed mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur, Mara Whittaker.


“Through this exciting and captivating program, kids will be able to better understand for themselves how to lead a healthier lifestyle. This is the perfect platform to bring to life a topic that can be often overlooked in fun and relatable ways. It is our hope that kids will be able to grasp the importance of healthy habits and practice it in their everyday lives. Rather than just listening to parents preaching it every day, children will now be able to experience it hands-on here,” said Mara.

Staying true to KidZania’s ‘Learn Life Today’ philosophy which champions early ‘real-life experiences through hands-on role-play engagements and opportunities, the KidZ & Health variable program will incorporate the involvement of KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s partners to feature a slew of engaging activities centered around the facets of nutrition, fitness, and health, which directly engages children to drive home the key building blocks of leading happy and healthy lives - which they will be able to inculcate for life! These include Avisena, Cuckoo, Danolyte, Kodomo, Optimax, Mission Foods, ESCAPE, and Subway.

One of the cooking demonstrations over the weekend

Through the programme, kids will be able to partake in activities that include, among others, the preparation of grocery lists and picking good food sources, learning about nutrition labels, engaging in cooking demonstrations, heart-pumping Zumba dances, learning proper brushing techniques, as well as getting an eye and general health screening. The programme will also feature SeminarZ, which will take the form of weekend workshops at the KidZania theatre featuring health, nutrition and fitness experts. These workshops will also be broadcasted online via KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s social media platforms.


Children and their parents also stand the chance to win tickets and cash prizes by carrying out two simple home experiments focusing on dental health and nutrition. Among the prizes include cash prizes of up to RM3,000 and a SimPass – an annual pass to KidZania Kuala Lumpur, ESCAPE Penang, and ESCAPE Petaling Jaya. Be sure to create some interesting content and who knows, you might win a special pass for the kids!

Exclusive PROMO CODE to KidZania

To enable more people to experience the fun, merriment, and learning, all visitors are entitled to 5% off on tickets to KidZania Kuala Lumpur with the promo code 'KidZ&Health'. Those using the promo code will also be entitled to enter a lucky draw to win SimPasses! More information about the programme and further details about activities can be found at https://www.kidzania.com.my/ .

Ombak Kitchen's Lunch Value Meals | 12pm-3pm


I recently went to Ombak Kitchen, which offers The Best Seafood Restaurant in Bangsar and KL, to find out that they've finally have an exclusive lunch value meal on the menu! Being a seafood lover myself, I would have to say that I got really excited to check out the menu, and trust me when I say that i had no regrets about my meal that day. If you love seafood or if you're looking for the best seafood, then this blog post is for you! Skip the hassle of driving far, and enjoy the best seafood within the city center. FYI, they also recently opened a store in Putrajaya too!

Don't forget to try their Oysters while you're there!

When it comes to The Best Halal Seafood in KL and genuinely affordable seafood, fresh from the sea, you can definitely count on Ombak Kitchen to stir up the finest of the finest! Ombak Kitchen is a fun-filled family restaurant with the famous seafood boil concept originating from the state of Louisiana, USA. This concept is used to maintain the freshness and juiciness of the seafood. To introduce you to the lunch menu that they have to offer, they call it the lunch pots which basically offer 3 options for a good portion to share for two. 

Lunch Pot Crab


First up would be the Lunch Pot Crab which includes 1-2 XL Crabs, XL Fresh Prawns, Squid, Broccoli, Corn, and Rice for a price of RM99.90. I would have to highlight that if you're a crab lover, then you would enjoy this pot of seafood. For the price, I would say it's really worth every cent considering it has a good variety of seafood all in one pot. 

Lunch Pot Slipper Lobster


If you're looking for a non-crab option, then consider ordering the lunch pot slipper lobster. This options include slipper lobster, XL Fresh Prawns, Clam Hamaguri, Broccoli, Corn, and Rice, giving you just the right balance of seafood. I tried this is their Cheesy Zesty Lemon Sauce and i love it! This goes for RM89.90 a set and it's good to feed two pax. 

Lunch Pot Prawn XL

Prawn in Butter Milk Sauce

Prawn in Heritage Laksa Sauce

Squid in Spicy Coconut Curry

I would predict that this would be a crowd favorite because it has all the basic seafood variety in a decent portion in a pot. When im not into crabs, then this is the perfect combination for a quick lunch with all the freshest seafood the sea can offer. It contains Fresh Prawns, Squid, Blue mussels, Clam Hamaguri, Broccoli, Corn, and Rice at a price of RM79.90! 

Sauce Options

For all the lunch pots that they have to offer, they have in it 10 different sauces to choose from, but to be more specific with the top 3 choices, I would highly recommend you to either get it in SIngature Crazy Cajun Sauce, Buttermilk Indulgence, or Cheesy Zesty Lemon. The Signature Crazy Cajun Sauce is an authentically soulful cajun sauce made from a blend of cajun spices, paprika, garlic, herbs, and Ombak Kitchens's very own secret recipe mix. So, if it's your first time heading over to Ombak Kitchen, you can really never go wrong with the Signature Sauce. The other sauce they have to offer on the menu as well would include chili crab, garlic butter, spicy coconut curry, tomato basil, butter lemon sauce, heritage laksa, and salted egg cream. 



Ombak Kitchen has been received very well by all especially the seafood lovers and results of that, they have opened 3 branch outlets in Bukit Jelutong, Bangsar and the latest one is in IOI City Mall, Putrajaya. Ombak Kitchen Putrajaya is situated outdoor at The Symphony Walk and you can choose to enjoy your seafood spread by the dancing fountain with a great view.


Besides the seafood spread, they also have an upgraded menu to an Ala carte Concept where you can choose your favorite seafood with their preferred style of cooking, and they are served in colorful pots and bowls. Just dine in to pick and choose without having to depend solely on the usual premium combo menu. As a verdict, I would say that if you would like to dig into good seafood, this is the place to be that would not disappoint. What are you waiting for? Make some time during lunch and just get yourself one of those hot lunch pots by Kitchen Ombak while you can!

Parenthood Parent's Choice Award 2022 | Brands winning Parents Hearts

Among them are Genting, Betadine, Babyshop, R.E.A.L Kids, and Abbott.

Hello mummies and daddies! It's crazy to think that I've been blogging during my high school days and now talking about parenting! Being a parent myself, rest assured, I would like you to know that we all go through a phase in life where we feel lost, and IT'S OKAY! Parenthood itself is all about the journey and by going through the mistakes, we learn through it. That's what makes parenting so beautiful. Now, talking about going through those phases, I'm pretty sure one of the jugglings as a parent is choosing a reliable brand to trust? Well, lucky enough, I'll be spilling some details on the Parenthood Parents Choice Award 2022 since I got to witness the award ceremony.

To break it down to you a little, Parenthood Magazine recently organized a campaign where parents of Malaysia can vote for their favorite brands to win the best parents' choice award in 2022. And what they did was by identifying and bringing forward the most trusted brands that parents can truly rely on. There were 80 categories in total that were awarded, and I believe that these winners are prestigious and deserving brands to win the awards. 













Now, 80 would be a lot for me to elaborately write down in this post, but I'll try my best to keep it minimal and highlight the topics and brands which I found really exciting to discover during the award ceremony. For the full list of awards, you may head on over to Parenthood's article right here and see how the brands deservingly won the hearts of parents based on category. It's really a lot to look at but I would have to say that it's exciting to discover innovative brands and existing brands that I'm familiar with to win these awards and rest assured, assuring me that my choice of brands is similar to other parents of Malaysia. 





In terms of the winners, I hope my photos here would do all the talking, but really I think what was an eye opener to me was to see health supplements and probiotics within the category. Did you also know that there was a category where there's the best non-toxic makeup & skincare for kids as well? It goes beyond what we think is necessary, but it's good that they also had a category on education as well (Basically prepping myself for my eldest daughter once she's ready for school!). Nonetheless, if you would like to expand your knowledge of brands, I would really recommend you to check out the Parenthood article for the full deets on the winner's list. 





All in all, I would have to say that the award ceremony was very humble, and I did stumble upon some proud brand owners who were claiming their awards during the occasion. I would have to admit that it was such an honor to be there and witness all these really renowned brands winning the heart of parents throughout Malaysia! Every brand carries its own story when it comes to giving the best to kids and parents, but what matters throughout it all to me would be the bond they have made possible among parents of Malaysia. I would agree that all the brands who managed to win the title of being the best of the best definitely deserve the award because I've tried and tested myself and they deliver their promise. Well, I hope you found this post useful and I wish you a happy parenting journey with the little ones! It can be exhausting but with the right products and guidance, it helps to ease out the journey.
