Body Care Range @ Adidas UEFA Champions League

Hey there!
Today, I am going to talk about men's fragrance.
I've always been into smell, no matter it is a smell of women or men.
Both plays an important role in our lifestyle now and then as I believe good scent can boost energy and alertness to the people around you.
Don't you wish you could have a special scent that draws extra attention? #hehe



Adidas recently has launched it's new UEFA Champions League Star Edition Body Care Range of official licensed products which specially dedicated to the UEFA Champions League 2015/16 season. 
The new body care range has gathered the finest, most vibrant fragrance ingredients to create a stand out woody green aromatic scent for men.
The inspiration mostly come from the Europe'most prestigious club football tournament; so, if you are a football fan, I'm sure you will definitely fall in love with it! #lol



Adidas has been working with Coty Inc and sportspeople for more than 30 years to develop fragrances and personal body cares which suitable for their use in and off from the field.
And, this UEFA Champions League Star Edition Body Care Range is the second collection that Adidas body care teamed up with the UEFA Champions League.
The first collection is more about the gleaming UEFA Champions League trophy, while the new collection is more focus on the incredible star quality.



The new Adidas UEFA Champion League Star Edition Body Care Range includes fragrance and deodorant.

And, the Adidas men UEFA 2 Deodorant Body Spray 150ml is with the retail selling price @ RM17.90.



I asked Lik to test the fragrance, and glad that he likes it.
He said the scent is very fresh and natural, almost like you just took a bath.
The scent isn't too strong, and suitable to use in any occasions.
The fragrance also consider long lasting as Lik said it can last almost an entire day.



The packaging of the products is easy to recognize by the football fans around the world.
It is packed with the distinctive "starball" design of the Adidas final football which used in all the competition's matches, and for the special highlight of the partnership, the body care collection uses rich blue and sleek silver as the colour theme.

Where to stay @ Seoul and Busan

Since this is my first time going to Korea on a free and easy trip, so I decided to give it a try on Airbnb.
I have been heard of Airbnb for a long time, and glad that I finally make my booking with them.
A little bit about Airbnb if you haven't heard before.
It is a website where people can list, find and rent housing to the travelers.
It has over 1,500,000 listings in 34,000 cities and 190 countries.
My friends at first wanted to book our stays in the hotels, but they were convinced after my recommendation. :)
And, it is lucky that all of them are satisfying with the stays! #greatjob



We stayed at Mong House during our 2 days in Busan.
All the reviews about Mong House from the website are in Korean, and my Korean isn't this good yet. #lol
So, we just tried our luck with the attractive pictures shown at the website.



Four of us paid total RM520 for a 2 night stay.
It's a small yet simple and modern apartment which is a kind of my dream apartment.
The website stated the apartment can accommodate up to 6 person, but I think it wouldn't be a good idea to fit more than 4 person since the space is too small and you wouldn't feel comfortable.



The bathroom and toilet are all in one together, which is on the right before entering the apartment.



One good thing about renting an apartment on your trip abroad is you can feel like a local, and it can lets your do all things like make your own food with the well equipped kitchen.
We utilized Mong's kitchen to cook the Korean instant noodle for our supper every night.



And drink the Korean soju while watching their local channels. #hehe



There is a small corner which supplies the basic amenities such as hairdryer, towels, extra toilet papers, and some useful leaflet of Busan.



On the website, it also stated the apartment has 2 bedrooms; perhaps this extra sofa bed in the living room is consider one bedroom?





The bedroom located at upstairs, whereby you need to climb the tiny stairs up to the beds.
Opps! Mind your head as the ceiling is a bit low.



It's our first time sleeping on the mattress without the bed frames, but we are happy to experience how the Koreans usually sleep; with the thick mattress that placed on the floor and cover a light blanket on top for warmth.
Anyway, we had comfortable night's sleep here after all day outings.



The overall stay at Mong House was good.
The location wise is very convenient whereby a big supermarket is just next to the apartment, 5 minutes walk to the Busan station if you want to take the train to Seoul, less than 2 minutes to the subway station and there are also many restaurants around the area.
It is definitely a good place to move around.
The only side point I can think of is the owner cannot speak English, whereby it's hard to communicate and ask for more details.
Otherwise, it would be perfect!



Let's move on to the Seoul!
We decided to stay at Olivia House after reading through all the good comments (in English) from the previous travelers. #haha
Also, Olivia is a detail person who prepared clear instruction for us before our arrival and she is very helpful and fast in responding to all our questions.
So, we kinda had an expectation about Olivia House before we arrived there.



We paid RM1120 for a total 4 night stays with bigger house compared to Mong House.
Olivia House includes 1 single bed + 1 queen bed downstairs, and 2 single beds upstairs.
All beds can fit about 6-7 people but the space inside the apartment isn't that big.
If you want to move around the house comfortably, probably 4 people would be enough.





Upstairs has the same bedroom idea like Mong House, which only has thick mattress on the floor and the ceiling is a bit low.







We really enjoy our stay at Olivia House as the entire house is so complete; the kitchen has all the basic needs, the mini-fridge is filled with mineral waters and local drinks, and the bathroom provides really nice shampoo. #hehe



There are certain rules that you should follow while throwing out the trash in Korea.
But no worries, Olivia will teach you how to separate the trash correctly which is important to daily apartment life.
Let's stay like a Korean at Mong House in Korea!



Besides, you can also find a nice booklet on the table with all the useful information such as what to eat in Seoul, where to eat, how to take subway and buses from the apartment to the attractions and so on.
Oh dear Olivia, you are so well thought!



There are plenty restaurants around the apartment, and all of they are mostly local and traditional Korea food.
We had our first Korean BBQ just right at the corner along the street.
Besides, there is also a convenient store where we get our Korean Soju every night, and had our simple breakfast.



You can get the subway station right in front of the apartment.
The bus station is also in front of the building where you can take the airport limo bus straight to the airport.
It is also very close to Dondaemun Market, Gwangzhang Market, and Korean traditional Flea Market.
For such a great apartment, what else you can ask for?! :)



I really enjoy my stays at both Mong and Olivia House.
The rooms are comfortable and really makes me feel like I am home.
I hope this post will help you while you are searching a stay in Korea.
What's more?! Stay tuned for my next blog post about my first visit at Gamcheon Cultural Village in Busan! #yeayeayea

Fresh to Go @ 7-Eleven

Ever since I left my full time job, I almost always eat lunch by myself.
That's because my time becomes a bit more flexible than previously.
I do enjoy having my own time as I can decide which place to go and what I want to eat without getting someone permission.
But, one of the bad things is I feel so awkward when people staring at me; like why this lady is so lonely that she has to eat alone.
I always have this thought whenever I enter to a restaurant or a cafe, which makes me feel like eating alone are the odd balls. :(
Therefore, quick meals and quick bites from the convenience stores are always my lunch ideas if I cannot find any "kaki". #lol



Recently, 7-Eleven has expanded their fresh food line with the addition of Fresh to Go menu.
I was so happy to hear about it after it launched at their stores because with all the fresh food offerings, I now have more choices at lunch!


There are variety of food for you, from the main course like rice and noodles to the finger foods such as fish balls, sausages, sandwiches, and breads.
One thing to highlight about the Fresh to Go is there are no preservative, colouring and MSG added!
Also, to maintain it's freshness, all foods are delivered daily and certified halal too!
So, you can now eat fresh and stay healthy with all the quick meals from Fresh to Go!


Let's check out what Fresh to Go offers to you!
Thsandwiches cost at RM3.05 with 2 pieces per pack.



Japanese Rice Ball Onigiri has few choices such as Tuna, Fried salmon, Teriyaki Chicken; and each flavour cost only RM4.00.



All kinds of finger foods for you such as fish balls, chicken balls, and sausages!
Everything are kept in warm till it's served.





Fried mee hun, fried rice, nasi lemak, too many choices? :)



A pack of fried rice comes with a fried egg and few pieces of sausages; cost at RM3.05 only!



Same goes to the Fried Mee Hun!
For me, simple lunch at RM3.05 is what a good deal!
 

I had the fried salmon onigiri for my lunch today since I wanted to have it after watching the K-drama, Cheese in the trap.
There was a scene on episodes 3 where Seol and Jung were having the onigiri together at the convenience store lol. #sillyme


For me, the best thing about having Fresh to Go is because I can enjoy my meals at anywhere at anytime without any companions.
Now, I can have a plate of fried rice at my office while surfing the web and watching Youtube or I can even have the sandwiches while driving to the client meetings!
Huray!!!
