Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain Experience

On end of February 2022, I was given the opportunity to join other team members to experience the all new Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain at a beautiful place in Putrajaya.

On a strict SOP, we were required to undergo Swab Test before we begin the day.

Powerful Performance, Luxury & Comfort Interior, Advanced Safety.

Is the new flagship standout features.

Introducing the all new Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain. Do you know that, Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain has won numerous “Best Pick-Up Truck” Awards in Malaysia?

In this post, I’ll be sharing the exterior, interior and the safety features.

The color selections are Valencia Orange & Sapphire Blue. Which is you favorite pick? I like the vibrant color of Valencia Orange 🙂

The advanced 3.0 Litre Blue Power Turbo diesel engine packs a powerful 190 horse power, 450 Newton Meter of Torque.

Proudly presenting the latest generation of pick-up truck, The All-New Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain.

It was an honor to be able to join the team for a 30km test drive experience around Putrajaya. During the test drive on road, I get to experience the Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Manual Speed Limiter.

Adaptive Cruise Control – Adjusts your cruising speed based on vehicles around you. – useful when there’s a certain speed limit restriction along the road.

Lane Departure Warning – Detects and warns the driver should drift towards another lane. – useful when you are switching lanes, sometimes we are caught off guard during this situation.

Manual Speed Limiter – Enables driver to set a maximum speed (30 – 160km/hr) so that the speed could not exceed the speed limit.

We even got the opportunity to self experience some of the fantastic safety features! Such as :-

There are just too many features to list everything in a post. LOL!

Honestly this is the first time I’m driving a pickup truck. Initially i was doubting myself whether can i handle it? *Chuckle. Not only i was given the opportunity to drive, but also a hands on experience on the specs of this new Isuzu D-max X-Terrain. After experiencing it myself, i truly felt that its more than what a pick up truck does, especially on the safety features which impressed me. Besides that, it is easy to maneuver too. You really got to try it yourself! On top of that, I really love the leather seats with lumbar support, which makes the overall vehicle looking so premium. Therefore it makes me wonder, am I in pickup truck? Furthermore the stability and comfortableness gives you more confidence for smoother and longer journey.

I would say The All New Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain, not only it is suitable for women but also as a family car. I also hope to bring my family for more adventurous trips!

What are you waiting for? Let’s do the test try to experience it yourself!

Review : Sanctuary Asia Spa @d’Tempat Country Club, Seremban

As a Full Time Working Mom, to have a balance lifestyle between work, home and children can be quite stressful. I tend to look for ways to de-stress or occasional self pampering session option like Spa.

Recently, I chanced upon Sanctuary Asia Spa at d’Tempat Country Club, Seremban. Thus, I had a wonderful spa experience which I would like to share here.

I was served by Lindri who then explained the types of therapy and package available here.

On going promotion for month of December. Club members will get to enjoy more discount. Best kan?

Above are the available treatments and prices.

Thus, I took up the 3 hours package treatment. Read on for more details.

The reception area and the corridor leading to rooms are spacious and brightly lit.

Sanctuary Asia Spa, is designed with contemporary style and subtle touch of Balinese to Rejuvenate, Retreat and Relieve your senses.

I was also told that, these are the products used during the therapy; massage.
Avocado & Milk, were among the favorite massaging cream.

The techniques used at the Sanctuary Asia Spa include acupressure, skin rolling and flicking, firm and gentle stroking, percussion and application of essential oils and also the use of stone massage. The combination of manual therapy and aromatherapy encourages one not only to relax, but to also help loosen the facial restrictions, stimulate the lymphatic system and promote the flow of blood and qi.

Hall for Foot Massage.

But for some who prefers some privacy, rooms are also available for Foot Massage too.

Whilst the Waiting Room is spacious and relaxing.

There are total of 5 individual rooms. Rooms are equipped with sauna, bath tub, shower room, wash basin, cupboard and 1 unit of bed for massage.

Above is the room for 2. Total units available here are 2 rooms. Ideal for couples. The difference between a single and couple room is that, room is more spacious and it comes with Jacuzzi. Apart from that, the room look so luxurious!

I was arranged to have my session in this room. The room has a peaceful and relaxing ambiance. Plus points to the soothing music and calming essential oil. Furthermore the masseur was attentive , which made me feel more comfortable to begin the session.

It started off with Foot Bath.

Then, proceeded to Sauna for a good sweat out.

A sauna’s heat also helps to open your pores, which promotes sweating and cleanses your skin. The high temperatures promotes blood flow and circulation, which can make you feel energized after a sauna.

This session lasted about 30 minutes. However if you feel uneasy, you can opt for a shorter duration.

I was attended by Maya, who is friendly and skillful. She is from Indonesia and has several years of working experience as a masseur. She commented that I have very stiff shoulder. What I like most is that, not much of talking or chit chatting. Just relax yourself and enjoy the whole session. I literally fall asleep.

The above session covers; Balinese Aromatherapy Massage, Balinese Green Tea Scrub, then followed by Yogurt Conditioning.

I skipped the Traditional Balinese Facial because I wanted more on massage 😀

After all the above, I then continued with Milk & Flower  bath in a tub of warm water. Frangipani flower is widely use in Bali. It is Bali’s signature flower and it smells nice too.

I was offered with this spa salt. Put small amount of spa salt on wet body and rub gently in circular motion. Rinse off with clean water. This fine spa salt is to nourish and moisturize during exfoliating for smooth,clean and healthy skin.

Guests will also served with a cuppa warm Ginger Tea after the session end.

I love this pampering session very much. Do bring along your loved ones who really deserves a good pampering session and I assured that she’ll really appreciate your effort. 🙂

Last but not least, this will be the highlight of this post.
Now its the time for my blog to do a little giveaway to my dear readers before we end the year 2017. Thanking you guys for your loyalty throughout these years.

Product Review : Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask

Hi….HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

How’s everyone getting along with the year 2016?

Brought to you today its a product review of;

Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask

On New Year, Natta Cosme surprised me with a beauty gift box that contained Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask. Its a product of Korea.
Natta Cosme really knows me well…because I really need these so much. Thanks alot!

What I like most about sheet mask is the individual pack. It is so convenient and light weight to bring along especially when you are traveling for holiday. You could easily slip few into your bag.

With Malaysia’s weather, we tend to stay in the air conditioned room often. Most of us also turn on the air cond before sleep. Therefore our face tend to be dry. That’s how Klairs sheet mask gonna work. Put on this sheet mask before going to bed to keep our face moisturize and supple till the next morning.

The benefits and ingredients of the sheet mask are clearly printed on the front and back of its pack. The outlook is very simple and nothing fancy.


Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask is made of pure cotton. It contains rich essence but no dripping when I took out from the pack. The smell is quite pleasant too. Try to refrigerate it a few minutes before using. It gives you a better soothing effect.

The size of this sheet mask, fits perfectly on my ‘big face’.

 *self pampering time*

Another reason why I like sheet mask. Is that you don’t need to rinse your face after removing the mask

. hehe…*lazy mode on*

The ‘before’ and ‘after’ doesn’t show big difference. However I could feel that my face is smoother and cleaner 😀

You can try out this mask by purchasing it from Natta Cosme at the price of 10 pieces for RM119.00 RM69.00.

Sharing is caring. I would like to do a giveaway (2 pcs Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask) to 2 lucky winners. All you need to do is name 1 benefit of this mask on the comment box below.  Together with your name & email address. Last day of answer submission will be on 23 January 2015. Thank you.

(tips : answer is shown on the front pack of the mask)

Good Luck! 🙂

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.

#Vita Fruits Peach

#Jewelry Pink

#Sexy Pink


  • long lasting color. It lasted me from morning till afternoon.
  • waterproof
  • doesn’t wear off or smudge. Save all the hassle to re-touch my lip after every meals.

Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream

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


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!

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.


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.

 *on 1st trial*
pores are slightly reduced on certain areas.
*on 2nd trial*
Noticed the more even skin tone and the red patches are less visible. It also dries up my ‘whiteheads’

Product Review : Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner

Women needs makeup to make them look outstanding, beautiful and confident! Apart from the basic foundation and blusher, what is the one beauty product that you think you MUST have?

For me it would be an eyeliner. Eyeliner is a cosmetic used to define the eyes. When one mentioned “I want to have alluring eyes!”…there’s where the eyeliner played the role. Because eye contact is important.

Let me prove it to you….

 Check the above comparison. So, you understand what I meant right?


Today, introducing you to this wallet friendly eyeliner.

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner claimed to be Taiwan #1 Eye Liner Gel Pencil!

 Once again big thank to Natta Cosme for this awesome gift containing 4nos Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner of different shades. And a sharpener (will show you when to use it). Let me show you the awesome-ness of these eyeliners. 🙂

What’s your main concern or criteria when you choose an eyeliner?

Smudge free, waterproof and easy application are my main concerns. In our humid country…. we tend to sweat alot. Therefore smudge free and waterproof is important. I don’t want to look like a zombie after sweating. haha….

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner comes in 4 shades.

All 4 shades matches our Asian complexion. For natural day look, I’ll choose brown (earth tone). While black I’ll keep for night or when I want to create a smokey eye.

Both Galaxy Black & Golden Brown has this shimmering effect.

Lets do a few test to prove that its smudge free and waterproof.

#test it under the running tap water. No fading

#rub the colors using my fingers. Color stays.

#removable using a makeup removal product

Above I was using Night Black.

Above I was using Choco Brown.

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner is lightweight. The texture enables you to give a beautiful, neat and precise stroke.

Ops…what should I do when the eyeliner tip is blunt?

Use an eyeliner pencil sharpener to do the job. Turn the pencil at least one full cycle to ensure that you will have completely fresh eyeliner. #easy

Tip: Minimize the breakage of your eyeliner pencil by cooling it down prior to sharpening it. You can place your eyeliner pencil in the refrigerator or freezer for an hour, or you can simply store your eyeliner pencil in the refrigerator or freezer so it is always ready for sharpening when you are. If you ignore this step, you may find that your eyeliner pencil will break and crumble when you sharpen it.

I’ve found an eyeliner which gave me WOW and satisfaction. Despite the rich and long lasting color, its easy to remove using a makeup removal. No worries. For people who has oily eyelid…you’ll be happily owning this. Remember what I’ve mentioned earlier…its wallet friendly!! So, why not give it a try today? Trust me… it will not disappoint you.

IMG_7632-001Why do you need a toner after cleansing your face?

It will get rid of any traces of cleanser remaining on your skin, temporarily shrink pores and may even give a moisturizing effect, depending on the ingredients in the toner.

Apply toner on a cotton pad or ball and just swipe all over your skin again paying special attention to areas such as the sides of your nose.



– Huge content, 355ml…can last very long.

– Vintage like packaging.

– Clear, translucent water based toner, non-sticky.

– I am happy to see this sentence ‘Alcohol-Free Toner’ is printed on the bottle. Because I am quite concern about toner with alcohol content.

– Definitely love the natural and organic contents which doesn’t harm our skin.

– Probably because its formulated with aloe vera, therefore it works well in soothing and moisturizing. I noticed that my T-zone is less oily now.

My Dislike

– The leaking problem from the lid. Not advisable to place in your traveling bag. I transferred it to a spray bottle instead.
