Before applying makeup, massage in an adequate amount of the 7 Seconds Speed White Cream to desired areas (face, neck, arms, legs, etc.) to achieve a flawless look that’s sure to flaunt your lips.

Above picture show the difference on skin after applying a small dot of White Cream.

The tip of the dispenser.

These are the shades of 3 colors I named above. The texture is like gel form and abit sticky.

Honestly, I’m not really a fan of liptstick. Its either the color made me look aunty/mature or the color doesn’t stay. However I’m quite turn on and satisfied with this lip tattoo. The colors look good on me (ahemm, self praising) and I’m flattered receiving positive feedback when I posted a picture on my Facebook.

Let’s try it on my bare lip (with minimal face makeup)

How to use

1) Before applying makeup, massage in an adequate amount of the 7 Seconds Speed White Cream to desired areas (face, neck, arms, legs, etc.).

2) To use the 7 Seconds Touch Fit Lip Tattoo, apply an even coat on the lips without going over the edges of your natural lip lines. 3) Let the lip tattoo dry for about 5-15 minutes, and be careful not to rub your lips or let anything touch them ! 4) After about 5-15 minutes, peel the lip tattoo from the outer edges of the lips to the inner edges. Peel off any excess lip tattoo and finish off the look with a clear gloss or lip balm for a natural look.

Dinner & Sunset @Yellow Cafe Langkawi

I did some homework few days before traveling to Langkawi. Just in case I do not want to end up paying hefty price for some lousy food.

I found out about this place which located along Pantai Cenang having quite a numbers of positive feedback in terms of environment and food. Therefore this place has to be in my itenary. Yellow Cafe is like a hidden gem. Without a signboard of its name, I doubt I could locate it. It is situated beside Langkapuri Inn passing through the rooms of Langkapuri Inn to locate this cafe.

The owner of this cafe decided to name his cafe as Yellow Cafe based on a nickname ‘Yello’ he gotten from Thailand. Simple and easy to remember isn’t it?

Using yellow as its theme color, we are expecting to see yellow here and there. :-D :-D

“Yellow Cafe is divided into three dining concepts: the Steak House Restaurant is comprised of an indoor section with dark wooden furnishings; the Cocktail Bar offers large comfortable sofas, while the Beach Front Lounge is perfect for lounging with a number of triangle Thai pillows, plush beanbags, and hammocks.”

My friend and I decided to sit here and this was our view. I could feel the fine sand below my feet. :-)

You can also watch the ongoing beach activities. E.g: para sailing, banana boat.

Our surrounding.

A cold beer with nice view feels so good.

At Yellow Cafe, they served mostly western food. Considering this area as tourist spot, the food prices are considered affordable. Their non pictorial menu was rather simple and straight forward.

We ordered a 12″(30cm) size pizza. I chose Tacchino (Turkey Ham, Mozarella, Olives, mushroom, tomato sauce) RM31

The pizza had a very thin crust. Buttery & crisp. The toppings were sufficient to cover every slices of pizza we had.

There were only 2 types of spaghetti served here. The bolognaise would be rather common. Therefore I chose the latter. I ordered for Spaghetti Serena (Chicken & Mushroom)RM24

The al-dente spaghetti was tasty, creamy but not cloyed. The amount of mushrooms and chicken were quite generous too.

Both dishes were on sharing basis. I enjoyed the food here. The food prices here ranges from RM20 – RM60.

The atmosphere here at night.

During peak periods, the cafe also hosts live bands performing a variety of music genres such as reggae and salsa.

Well, be prepare for the sunset view. The sunset here was around 7.30pm. Quite late huh..

The sunset at ‘Andaman Sea’

Beautiful, isn’t it?

A unique experience staying at Tubotel Langkawi

Hi…I just came back from my 3D2N trip to Langkawi with my GF. This trip was meant to be a relaxing trip and a short getaway from our busy life. On the first night we stayed at ‘Resort World Hotel’. But on 2nd night, my friend suggested we try Tubotel Langkawi. Well, from the photos…it looks pretty interesting. The concept I meant. Tubotel is located 6km from airport, 1.2km from Pantai Cenang.

“Tubotel is the first budget concept hotel of its kind in Asia, in a panoramic paradise, on a tropical island. A genuinely unique experience of no frills packed with tubotonnes of thrills… everyone should try it, even it is way below your budget!”

We booked a sea-view room at the rate of RM180 which inclusive of breakfast for 2.

 The check-in procedure was quick because we’ve made the payment through Agoda. These colorful tubes are meant to be bedroom. These are the rooms with sea-view
These are the rooms with garden view. I suppose the rates would be cheaper than sea-view.
Given a key to our Room No. 4, we were lead to our room.
Our neighbors. :-D :-D
Our room at night.
My jaw dropped opened seeing the actual room size. HAHAHAHA! I was like…omg..where should I place my luggage? Totally blank. There’s a small empty space or void under the bed where you can place your luggage.
This tiny room is sufficient for 2 adults. And equipped with 2nos. of power socket, 2nos. mineral water, 2nos of towel, an electric fan.
I was aware about the ‘shared bathroom’ basis, which was my turnoff. But at the same time I wished to have an experience putting up at something different, just like the backpackers.
View from my room.
You can also watch the sunset directly from your room.
Not only sea-view but I’m able to sight flying planes across my room too. Because the airport is just a short distance from here.
A beautiful bloomed morning glory greeted us at the garden.
The dining room, where we had our breakfast on the following day.
You can also choose to dine at the Al Fresco area. Unfortunately it was a wet morning that we got no choice but to dine indoor.
Pick your choice of breakfast from the list above.
Each breakfast set is served with home baked bread with butter & jam, a cup of coffee & a glass of orange juice.
I had Ham & Mushroom Frittata (smoked turkey ham & mushroom) while my GF had 2 fried eggs with roasted tomato & chicken sausage. The breakfast was good as its made to order.
The calm sea after the heavy downpour.
Below are some photoshoot of ourselves before leaving this unique place.
Mattresses are usually laid here…so that travelers could laid back and relax while enjoying a good sea view.
wefie in our room
Each room comes with a different wall painting. And we got a sexy bikini lady. LOL! :-D
My Summary
  • Did not experience bad services
  • More suitable for backpackers, light or solo travellers
  • Nice sea-view
  • Although the room is small…but there are space for you to roam around outside.
  • dislike the fact about shared bathroom. haha….
  • Wifi is provided for free at the lobby area.
  • Wasn’t aware about the Jacuzzi.

Lunch @ Nutmeg, Bangsar Village II

We were blogsphere friends. These blogsphere friends keep in touch with each other through Facebook and Instagram. Recently, we fixed a date to meet each other for lunch!

I arrived at KL Sentral via KTM and these gals; Jennifer of “Chasing Food Dreams”  and Choi Yen of “Mimi’s Dining Room” came pick me up. Since KL Sentral is quite near to Bangsar…Therefore we decided to go Bangsar Village for lunch.

We arrived Bangsar Village II at around 1pm. Jennifer suggested to go to Nutmeg. At Nutmeg, they served American, Breakfast, Brunch and Sandwiches. Upon our arrival…the place was already so crowded. Luckily there was a vacant table for us without the need to wait.

Above are some snapshots of the interior at where we seated. Nutmeg is located opposite to Zara. There’s one thing that I dislike here is that…I felt the tables arrangement are quite close to each other.

The non pictorial menu. But the kind waiter don’t mind to do the explanation & suggestion.

I ordered a Latte for RM9.

 My food arrived first. I ordered “Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwich” – RM24. Served with fresh salad, fried potato wedges.

 The tasty and moist shredded chicken and coleslaw is sandwiched in a soft and buttery flavored bun.

I enjoyed my choice of order.

This is the scenario when you dine with food bloggers. :-D :-D

Jenn’s food came next…She ordered Southern Fried Breakfast – RM26. Served with 2 eggs (any style), southern fried chicken, biscuit, gravy & hashed potatoes.

It was quite disappointing that we felt the fried chicken and biscuit alike muffin were dry.

Choi Yen’s food came last. She ordered Baked Eggs – RM18. (2 eggs, cheese, tomato compote, brioche)

We also felt the baked eggs was dry. Probably overcooked.

Before we dug into our food…..

There were wide varieties of cakes here. Choi Yen and I couldn’t decide which to go for. Hence we chose the above slice of cake which served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, priced at RM16. It was a slice of creamy & nutty hazelnut cake. Coated with caramel and sugar glacing.

It was my pleasure meeting these ladies. And thanks for the ride. ;-)

We shall meet again…..

Kindly hover over to their Facebook album to view photos of the food served here.

Brunch @Chars Cafe, Uptown Avenue Seremban 2

Weekends can never go wrong with cafe hopping!

On one fine weekend, I decided to visit this so-called new cafe in my neighborhood together with my family.

One may overlook this cafe because of its simple exterior.

But the interior is not bad. Cosy and comfortable seating place.

The light bulbs lighting are pretty nice and creative.

The interior design of this cafe is quite nice too.

With all the wordings on the wall….will it gives you more inspirations in writing? hehe….

Jet was getting excited with the helium balloon (the black one). It says there “Will You Marry Me”. Someone must have done a marriage proposal here. Aww..Such a sweet guy.

Chars Cafe practices ‘self service’. The huge menu board is placed visibly on the wall. Just place your order at their counter.

**only cash term**

Chars Cafe offers breakfast set at price of RM16.90 and RM17.90 which inclusive of a cuppa coffee. Choose from; ‘Americano, Cappuccino or Latte.

We had Cappuccino & Latte. Their coffee is quite rich and aromatic. Not forgetting also a neat coffee art.

Their simple breakfast set.

I opt for the latter; ‘Chars Breakfast Set’ which comprised of croissant, button mushrooms, baked beans, scrambled eggs & a cheesy sausage. I like their fresh & crispy croissant.

Besides this, we also ordered their Aglio Olio Spaghetti with Wild Mushroom at priced of RM9.80 which I felt it tasted so so only.

The brown sugar in a mini glass + crooked spoon caught my attention. Can’t help but to capture the image of it. :-D

Chocolate Waffle (RM12.90) was made fresh. Comes with double scoop of chocolate ice cream and sprinkled with chocolate sauce & coco krunch!

Will pay another visit to try their cakes. Looks good….

Lunch @Ichiro Sushi Bar,Isetan Eat Paradise, 1 Utama

Never expect my ‘aunty’ instinct gotten me into a free meal treat by Kc Wong! *laughs*

Ichiro Sushi Bar is located inside Isetan Eat Paradaise @ 1 Utama shopping center. May not be new to many diners. But definitely a new place for me. Kc also highly recommended this place for delicious & fresh Japanese food especially sushi/nigiri prepared by Japanese chefs. (Kc is a regular customer here…kekeke)

The daily specials are written on white papers. Checking out the freshest fish available for the day.

You select and manage your orders via iPad.

*Chef at work…the chefs here are quite friendly too*

The menu is well-organized and user friendly. For more pocket friendly, Ichiro also serves lunch set meals which are available daily including weekends and its value for money!

We sat at the sushi bar. Where you could see how the chef prepare the sushi/ sashimi. We also met a Japanese guy who sat next to us…who is also a regular customer here. He claimed that Ichiro serves fresh and authentic Japanese food & flavors. Ichiro is one of his best choice.

Perhaps…..the photos below are the evidences.

Since Kc is more familiar… so, I’ll let him do the ordering. hehe…

We started with (from bottom to top) Kohada, Gomasaba (wild mackerel), Aji (horse mackerel). The sushi rice is well pressed and not too mushy with well balanced of vinegar.

Ichiro serves freshly grated wasabi. *becareful with the burning sensation* :-D

Sardine – RM9.80

Tuna (crown of the head)RM40

Searobin – RM24.80

What matters most is getting the right angle.

We ended our lunch with sweet stuffs. Desserts for sure! The double scoop ice cream comes with an affordable price tag of RM7 (Yuzu Sorbet); RM6 (Sesame). Its rich in flavors.

Persimmon Sorbet – RM5

Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream

“You Look So Wonderful Just The Way You Are” by Klairs.

Illuminating-Supple-Blemish-Cream-4

A simple introduction about Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream or better known as BB Cream.

I have been using BB Cream over the normal foundation for several years. The Korean made a good line of BB Creams and its very popular among the Asians. I felt that BB Cream somehow more nutritious than the normal foundation which only serves as coverage.

The unboxing moment.

Thanks to Natta Cosme for sending this box of goodies and also allowing me to sample this new BB Cream.

Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream’s design is simple, slim & sleek with a content of 40ml. Therefore it is easy to carry out. One thing that I would like to emphasize is that; Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream is an eco-friendly product. “No Animal Testing, Alcohol Free, No Paraben”.

Although it is a product of Korea, it also has English translation for better understanding. What I like most about this BB cream is the high SPF. Its an important component as we often expose to sunlight. This is something good about BB cream. Needless to apply/purchase an additional tube of sunblock.

The dispenser tip is small which allows you to control the flow. Natta Cosme suggested to apply BB cream with the assistance from Cerro Qreen, Natural Emulsion Powder Puff.

Squeeze out a desired amount of BB Cream on Cerro Qreen, Natural Emulsion Powder Puff.

Pat evenly on your face using Cerro Qreen, Natural Emulsion Powder Puff. (Apply after basic skincare routine.)

Alternatively, you can also follow the diaphragm above on how to use BB cream.

*Right, is after application*

Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream only comes in 1 shade. One shade that fits naturally from dark skin tone to light skin tone. From the photo above, the BB cream blends very well, resulting in natural skin color.

Lets try it on my bare face. (pardon my non-makeup face =_=)

Could you see the difference? Although Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream only comes in one shade, but it fits my tanned complexion giving me the natural & glowy finish. I wouldn’t say it has ‘superb’ coverage…but it does give me an even skin tone and helps to cover certain spots.

Okay…lets finish up with the other side of face and wrap up with some powdering to give nice matte surface!

Shade/Color : √√√√
Coverage : √√√√

Hair Makeover @The Color Shop, Palm Mall Seremban

As I walked into the saloon, I was greeted by Alice who waited for my arrival. Alice  is the Manager, also the co-founder of The Color Shop. She then lead me to be seated and sort of ran through my hair. Judging my look and appearance, I guessed she may have some ideas on what to do to my hair. Therefore I just gave my trust, leaving my hair for them to handle. Afterall they are the professional. :-)

**my old hairstyle: colored & digital perm 6 months ago**

Before that, allow me to take you a tour to this simple yet well organized hair saloon. It is located at the latest mall in Seremban.

The Color Shop has a total of 6 outlets. They are located at Aeon Seremban 2, Giant Senawang, Giant Putra Heights, Setia Alam, Tesco Nilai and Palm Mall Seremban.

A wide range of the Loreal & Kerastase, the renowned hair care brand.

The ‘Hair Treatment Room’.

A room dedicated to the ‘tudung’ Muslims woman.

The ‘shampoo-ing’ section.

Alice who is a well experienced hair dresser explained on what they intend to do to my hair. Hhmmm… should I expect a new look today? Teamed up with Kenny, one of the senior hair stylist here, they decided to give me a snip and some hair coloring. Ohh…did I hear color? Yea…let’s play with colors. Interesting!

Alice also mentioned about her interest and passion in hair dressing. Today, Alice decided to do some trimming and layering to my hair. She claimed that my hair looked ‘heavy’ and ‘flat’. She was right… I now felt that my hair is much lighter after the trim.

After the haircut, Kenny took over the coloring job. He’s good at colors! He suggested to redye my hair and add some highlights. Taking considerations about my occupation, both thoughtful Alice & Kenny decided for highlighting instead of dip dye.

This was the color chart for my highlight. I guessed these colors are the latest color trend. Kenny asked if I would prefer blue or green. I asked for his opinion. And he replied ‘green’. *leave the decision to the professional, hardly go wrong*

These are the latest color trend for year 2015 which I sourced from the internet. Hence, this is the first time I’m having a different color shade on my hair other than the common brown or red tone. I started to feel excited and looking forward to see the final result.

**Kenny, why did you frown? @_@ **
The hair coloring took longer hours because it was divided into 3 steps.

Step 1: Redye my hair with a new color. Kenny chose a brown shade. He claimed it matched my tanned complexion. He started off with coloring my hair root because that’s the darkest shade on my hair. Rinsed, Shampoo & blow dry.

After the hair root, then continued with hair tip.

I also asked Kenny whether should I go short or fringe. Kenny said No! Hmm…honest feedback from a hairstylist. LOL! He said I’ll look better in long hair. Ok Ok….

Step 2: Once the hair base color is settled, continued with selecting the area or strands of hair to be highlighted. These selected areas has to be decolorize before applying the green shade. And this requires foil wrapping.

Step 3: After rinsed and blow dry. Now its the final step to apply the green shade on the chosen strands on hair. Leave for 10 minutes then rinse, shampoo and blow dry.

The final outcome of my hair. Do you like it? I personally love the green strikes on my hair very much. First time being on such daring color. :-D

The ‘stylo’ Mel!

Bros.Cafe, a Korean Dessert Cafe @Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2

I noticed the blooming numbers of Korean cafe in Klang Valley.

Not going to be a loser…Seremban here also has a nice & cosy Korean cafe. Hehehe…. Anyeong Anyeong ;-)

Fret not…its featured on this web leh… *wasehhh*

http://hype.my/noms/9-kickass-korean-cafes-we-love/

Bros cafe occupying both ground and first floor of the building, strategically located at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. Merely 10 minutes drive after the Seremban toll exit.

I visited this cafe on 2 different occasions.

First visit was with my schoolmate@buddy, Wei Chi for a tea break.

Self service and only *cash term.

Orders are separated for ground and first floor. Cakes and drinks, you’ll have to place your order at ground floor. While for desserts/ bingsoo you gotto order it upstairs. Which I felt its quite troublesome. Imagine carrying the tray of bingsoo walking down the stairs. Luckily I didn’t roll down the steps. LMAO!

The upstairs counter to order bingsoo.

The all round windows made the cafe look bright and spacious.

some deco on the counter.

A guitar for display and some Korean products for sale.

Latte – RM9

The kind waitress gave up some colorful glutinous rice to go along with the drink.

Cappuccino – RM9

*I like the heart shape ♥ drawn on my drink*

“I was taken by the power that savoring a simple cup of coffee can have to connect people and create community.

~Howard Schultz
Bingsoo is a signature dessert in a Korean cafe. So we decided to order one and to share the serving.
~Types of Bingsoo served here~
I couldn’t decide which flavor to choose…the waiter recommended this Strawberry (RM20).
Snow ice mountain dish topped with cornflakes, red bean, and Haagen-dazs vanilla ice cream with glaze of strawberry syrup.
On a different occasion, I visited Bros cafe for the 2nd time during my sister’s birthday.
Dislike coffee? Perhaps you can go for Yuja Tea(RM9). A traditional Korean tea (herbal tea) made from the citrus fruit yuzu. Yuja (유자) fruit is thinly sliced with its peel and combined with honey or sugar, prepared as fruit preserves or marmalade.
Iced Latte – RM9
Nok Cha Milky – RM12 *recommended*
Nok-cha (green tea) is organic one all the way from Jeju Island, Korea. Its milky, creamy hence rich green tea taste for green tea lovers.
Cakes for the birthday gal… Choc Ganache Cake (RM13).
Banana Cloud Cakes – RM13
Not overwhelmed with the cakes. Somehow felt its a lil pricey.
Cacao Island Bingsoo – RM20 *recommended*
Snow ice mountain dish topped with cocoa puffs, cocoa Powder, Sweet Chocolate,
Haagen-dazs vanilla ice cream with glaze of milky chocolate syrup. Ideal for chocolate lovers….. like me! :-)
Before you leave…you can bring home some coffee grounds use for eliminating foul smell/ household odors. Its FOC anyway.

Product Review: SKIN & LAB Dr.Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask

Do you have large pores problem just like an orange skin? Awww…. don’t feel sad. Today I am going to share something to fix your problem. Something which able to minimizes the enlarged pores.

When I received a parcel from Natta, I got my lil helper to unbox it. *buat kecoh* LOL!

Attached with a small gift and and a handwritten greeting card.

This is the product that I’m sharing today.

SKIN & LAB Dr.Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask,
a product of Korea.

It comes in a tub size of 100ml. A lid to maintain the moisture content so that it will not dries up easily. For hygiene purposes, a spatula is also provided in every boxes. Using the provided spatula to scoop the sufficient amount to spread over your clean face.

How it smells?

Smells like fresh mud with hints of herbs.

How’s the texture?

Grainy & very cooling.

A gentle reminder to user before you use the mask. You will feel a sharp pain or tingling sensation the moment you spread the mask over your face. But the “pain” will gradually fade a few minutes later.

Above are the main ingredients used in this tub of mask and a diaphragm on how it works.

EN-Tightening-Glacial-Clay-Facial-Mask-4

A clay mask is a beauty product that is used to improve the look and health of the skin. The mask should completely cover the skin but should also not be too thick. This is because one of the key functions of the clay, which is to draw dirt and excess oil out of the pores, cannot be completed if the mask stays wet. If they layer of clay is too thick, it can take too long to dry.

When a clay mask is applied to the face, it should kept off of the skin around the eyes and mouth. This is because the skin in these areas is delicate and may become irritated by the clay. Once the clay has dried on the face, it should be washed away with warm water. Sometimes, when a clay mask is completely dry and ready to be removed, it looks as though it has become polka dotted, especially around the T-zone. These dots are actually little spots of oil that have been sucked out of the skin by the clay as it dried.

Spread the mask evenly on your clean face and leave for about 10-15 minutes. Rinse the mask off with warm water. Wipe the clay off with upward, sweeping motions. Remove any clay facial mask that remains with a washcloth and gently rub in circular motions. Do a final rinse with cold water to close the pores. Finish the facial with a toner and moisturizer

A note of reminder:- When you use a clay mask, don’t wait for it to reach the flaky stage before you start rinsing. Do the touch test: When you start to see it drying (which usually means it gets lighter in color) but it still feels a bit sticky, it’s time to wash. Reason is because There are three phases of a clay mask. There’s the damp phase where your skin drinks in the beneficial minerals from the outside. Then you have the start of the dry phase, which exercises your capillaries and stimulates blood flow as the mask cools and contracts. But then there’s the dry phase, which draws out moisture from the surface of your skin, causing dehydration and irritation. Not only does skin then feel dry, tight, and sometimes itchy, but when you counteract it by slathering on extra face cream, you’re just smothering your freshly cleansed skin.
