Get On-The-Go with Anlene @ Anlene UHT

Hello guys!
Welcome back to my blog!
I've been so busy these days.
I can't believe it's almost 3rd week of September!
Time passes quickly when you're having fun.
How is everyone doing so far in September?
I bet you all knew that I attended the Get On-The-Go with Anlene by following my Instagram @ mizhippo.
The main purpose of the activities is to demonstrate to Malaysian adults on how they can care for their bones, joint, and muscle through 3 simple activities.
I've been roving around with Anlene in Klang Valley since end of August till last week.
So today, I would like to share a little bit of update about the three tasks I have completed with
Anlene! #yea


TASK ONE



Hui Lau Shan 许留山 @ 6 Innovative Snowy Mooncakes

Time flies so fast!

This month we are celebrating mid-autumn festival again.
It feels like it was only yesterday I'm eating mooncake with a cup of tea with my families.
Every year, there are many types of mooncakes with different fillings to cater a variety of taste buds, from traditional mooncakes, snowy mooncakes, mini mooncakes, to ice-cream mooncakes etc, sometimes I really wonder what and where to choose from. :)
My favourite type is always the snow skin mooncakes, a non-baked mooncake with a soft and chewy texture.
This year, I'm so excited to try out the new launch of snowy mooncakes from the most popular and famous Hong Kong Handmade Dessert, Hui Lau Shan 许留山.
Yeap! They really have awesome mango desserts in Asia!



Goddess Skin Instant All Day Whitening Face Cream @ Quick Makeup in Less Than 2 Minutes!

Manny of us don't want to spend 30 minutes to an hour on our makeup every morning, and we don't just wake up with flawless skin as there might have scars, dark circles, dark spots, past pimples that needs to be attended to.
If you are looking for an everyday makeup routine that you can do on a rushed morning, you would will likely want to check out the brand new product from Goddess Beauty Co.
Goddess Beauty Co. is a new beauty skincare that founded by Audrey Loke, Malaysia's Miss Supranational & Influencer.
The brand just launched in Malaysia this year 2018, with the new released product, named Goddess Skin Instant All Day Whitening Face Cream.
The whitening face cream claimed that it allows people to have a quick makeup done in just 2 minutes!
How well the product works? Check out this post below!



DK Impian Property @ Seksyen U5, Shah Alam

Property is one of the most secured investment options as it not only creates an asset, it also creates a value-adding asset.
In 15 years ago, one close friend who's around the same age as me asked if I would be interested to get a property for myself.
She said property is always a good investment with high return, and also property will become very expensive as time goes by.
One of the main reason why I wasn't interested at that time is because I wasn't ready to create so much financial burdens on myself.
When I think back now, I was kinda regret as buying a house becomes much more difficult as you need to prepare a lot of money compare to years back.
Last week, I paid a visit to a new property, DK Impian, located in the city of Shah Alam, which I think it can be a truly enviable location and definitely a wise investment choice not to be missed!



Watsons Card Celebrates Its 8th #WatsonsRewards Anniversary @ Sunway Pyramid

I can also use it at more than 2,000 dining places to get special benefits and discounts on my final bills, and also use it when I'm driving as the membership card comes with Touch 'n Go features.

Whether it is Korean BBQ, spicy instant noodles, kimchi, spicy rice cakes, or Korean soju, I just can't resist myself from having them at least once a week.

Travel with Hippo to Perth @ Wave Rock | Hippos Yawn | Tin Horse Highway

Today's post is all about the Wave Rock in Hyden, Western Australia.
Among all the famous attractions in Perth, Wave Rock is one of the places that many people commented and asked me about.
Many of them were amazed by the pictures I shared on my social medias.
Well no doubt that the pictures taken at Wave Rock looked really cool at every angles.
Honestly, before I decided to put this attraction into our itinerary, it actually took me a while to think if it's worth for such a long drive from Perth city.
Somehow it felt just unjustifiable to travel for almost the whole day just to see a piece of big rock.
Yet, after giving a second thought about it, I still think it's worth a shot since life is all about experiencing and exploring new things in the world.
Just like the quote from St.Augustine said: The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."

Too much workload and also inside thoughts lately.
It's stressful, but I know I have to try my very best to find a way to calm myself down.

BLACKMORES @ Natural Vitamin E Cream Range

As we get older, you may notice your skin isn't as smooth or tight as it once was.
Your skin may be dried, more fragile and thinner than it used to be.
This may due to the internal factors such as lifestyle, stress, emotions, hormones etc, but it may also be the harsh environment and nutrient deficiencies that caused the impact on the structure and function of skin which may contribute to skin irregularities such as dry skin.
This is why it is important to always protect and take care of your skin by selecting skin care products that are right for you.
Recently, BLACKMORES, the leading natural supplement brand from Australia has brought their range of high quality natural skincare products that catering to different skin needs to Malaysia!
I was really excited to check out the whole range at BLACKMORES, Feel The Natural Effect Of Vitamin E event last week.



Hakka Cuisine Hometown @ Cheras 9 Miles

Any Hakka people here?
Or any Hakka food lover here?
Today, I wanna share a Hakka restaurant that I came across last week with my friends.
The restaurant named Hakka Cuisine Hometown, which located at Cheras area.
I pretty enjoy eating Hakka food, especially the Yong Tao Fu 釀豆腐 since it can be eaten on its own or with carbs like rice or noodles (I always wanted to reduce my carbs intake lol). 
I realized Hakka food has rich spices, and also more fragrant and flavour which leads to a greater feeling of fullness.
If Hakka food is your thing, check out this post, because it's probably a new place for you to enjoy authentic Hakka delight! :)

It's been one month since I last updated about my travel post.
My schedule has been extremely packed and fulled everyday.
I don't even got time for myself to enjoy my "me" time and also lock down my reading habit that I've always wanted to.
Anyway, time passes with so much fulfilling events, works, friends and family gatherings.

Exploring Guangxi, China @ Guangxi Tourism Promotion Conference

I miss China!
My last visit to China was years back.
China always been a destination that I will visit mainly because of it's food in different region.
Also, the travel expenses in China, such as accommodations, transportation, foods and drinks are usually much affordable compare to the other countries.
So far, I have been to Beijing, Hebei, Fujian, Xiamen, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and I still have a lot of places to visit in China such as Shanghai, Xian, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Qingdao etc.
It is true that sometimes the language barrier and the population can be the general craziness issues to the tourists; but being as a wanderlust, I think China is still absolutely the most unique and interesting country I've been to.
The country really has a lot of natural and scenic attractions that you should never miss in your life such as the Great Wall of China in Beijing, Yellow Mountain (Huangshan) in Anhui, Terracotta Army in Xi'an etc.
For me, I think it is truly an amazing place in Asia you must visit at least once in your life time! :)



Hong Leong Bank GSC Mastercard Credit Card Launch @ GSC Midvalley

I believe many of you are movie lovers!
So am I.
I love going to movies as I think it's a good idea to entertain and also it's a kind of inexpensive time out during the weekends.
I even created my own hashtags #hippomovies to remember the movies I had watched on my IG account @mizhippo.
I used to go to the cinemas once or twice a week, however with the rise in movie ticket prices over the years, I have cut down on cinema visits.
It was certainly an excited news when I got to know the new partnership of GSC with Hong Leong Mastercard to features a new card to benefit HLB GSC cardholders!
The new HLB GSC Mastercard Credit Card allows Movie-goers to enjoy more movies, more savings and other exciting rewards and benefits at Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC), the biggest cinema chain in Malaysia nationwide.

That Flower Shop @ Thing to Focus on When Staring a Florist Business

Recently, I'm thinking to pick up a new hobby to enhance myself.
I'm looking for something that can calm my mind and also reduce stress because I like to have some personal space to unwind myself after having all the hectic work schedules.
Besides yoga, I thought of going to pottery, flower arranging or crafting classes.
I pretty much interested in pottery classes as I find that is very unique yet I had never try it before.
Then, my girl friend suggested me to go for a flower arranging classes together with her, because she loves flowers and she is thinking to have her own florist one day after she retired from her full-time job. :)

Thought it's good to share it here with you all and also my girl friend who wanted to own a florist in the future. :)

Sunfeet International Rehabilitation Centre @ One Stop Foot Health Centre

Hey guys!
Have you ever thought about the important role your feet play in your daily life?
Many of us tend to focus merely on the face, and ignore the feet is really important as well.
Our feet are the foundation of our body, which allow us to touch the ground no matter if we are standing, walking or running.
We only born to have one pair of feet, so whether you like it or not, you still cannot change it.
Therefore, it is important to protect your foundation and keep your feet healthy.

It's my first time having my feet checking at such a professional foot health centre, and I was very impressed with the valuable knowledge given about the feet and also the process of checking each foot through their examination.
To be frank, if you have any feet problems or knee pains, please do not ignore it.

Sonno Mattress @ Sleep better, Live better

Before I start my post, I have a question that I would like to share with you all today.
What are the most important item that you willing to spend on when you are ready to move into a new home or renovated house?
A leather sofa?
A big wardrobe?
A bed frame?
A dining set? Or???
For myself, I 'm more willingly to spend on a quality mattress for my bedroom.
A good mattress plays an important role in our daily life.
A quality mattress guarantee a quality sleep that helps our body generate good cells to produce a quality life.
Without any doubt, a good night sleep on a comfortable mattress helps to rejuvenate our energy for the usage on the next day.
Recently, my 2 years old mattress which we bought on our marriage day broken down.
Very obviously one side of the mattress is moving down to another side, symmetric of the mattress was off the hook.
This caused my back to feel pain and I encounter discomfort in my sleep which really affect my daily routine.
Due to this, I realize having a good mattress is an important issue to consider as it really affect the life quality.
A good mattress is not only an important item but an essential item to ensure a quality life forward.
Before that, I never realize the necessity to seek for a good one but now I know.

Isaac Toast & Coffee @ 1 Utama Shopping Mall

The first time I heard about Isaac Toast & Coffee was from a friend of mine, who just traveled back from Seoul at that time.
Apart from the shopping spree she talked a lot about, she also highlighted about a famous toast she ate in Korea.
The way she described the toast was very unrealistic because to be honest I don't really like to eat bread.
Anyway, towards the end of our conversation back then, she reminded me again and again to try the Isaac Toast whenever I have the chance.
Well, for a person that never fancy about toast or bread, I really could not imagine how delicious it can be.
Unexpectedly, I had stumbled a chance to taste Isaac Toast in Malaysia on the last week.
To my surprise, the first bite into the toast had changed my view about a toast!
I'm SERIOUS! :)

SOTHYS Malaysia @ Brand Story about Sothys

I met Sothys Malaysia during my teenage years.
It was introduced by my mum, who always concern about my facial when I was growing up.
As a teenage, I was awe each time I watched my mum apply her skincare in front of the mirror.
So from time to time, I've picked up the beauty advice and also followed some of her beauty practices even till today.
Yea! I'm pleased that my mum is my personal beautician, because she is the one that installed beauty concept in my life.
So, how do I reconnect with Sothys?

NYX Professional Makeup Flagship Store Opening @ Suria KLCC

It's been a while since I attended a beauty event.
A week ago last Friday, I was invited to NYX Professional Makeup flagship store grand opening at Suria KLCC.
I attended their 3rd flagship store grand opening at Sunway Pyramid in early February, and from that time onwards, I left a deep impression on NYX.
First impression of NYX is their full ranges of cosmetic and makeup products that you don't have to go elsewhere.
Second impression of NYX is their products are great and very inexpensive.
Third impression of NYX is they have professional makeup artists at their outlets to give you professional makeup advises.
If you've never purchased NYX cosmetics before, you should visit there in one day.

If you are looking for good Japanese food in Klang Valley, you must carry on reading this post to find out more about Kimi-Ya Japanese restaurant.



Red Seal @ Why I am Choosing Natural Toothpaste

Toothpaste is generally considered a basic necessity in our daily life.
We brushing our teeth twice a day, and flossing at least once a day; there is no doubt that it is very important to be sure what are the main ingredients included in the toothpaste we use.
Seriously, don't you think there is nothing more important than knowing what we put into our mouth everyday.
However, there are hundreds of options in the market, how do you decide on the best product for you and your family?!
At most of the times when I shopped for toothbrush and toothpaste, I always standing in the toiletries aisle, and wondering what kind of toothpaste and toothbrush are best suit me and my family needs.
Until I met the range of Red Seal Natural toothpastes which provide a more natural and safer brushing experience!




LittleFlowerHut @ How to Save Money for a Wedding Flower Arrangement

Time flies, it's been two years since I got married with Lik.
These 2 years are full of adventures, learning and growing for us, and everyday I'm looking forward to many more future together.
Every time when I looking back to our wedding, I always feel so thankful that we were filled with so much fun and laughs.
Though planning a wedding is so stressful, it's still a fun memory to look back at the photos and smiles from times to times. 
Recently, I have a girlfriend in Singapore is getting married by next year. #congratulations
She is feeling a little stressed while planning her wedding, then she asked for my advises. 
I shared my personal experience with her, and told her that one of the most important things that she has to prepare for her wedding is the venue. 
Of course, the venue should look beautiful because this is where to comfy and welcome your guests to enjoy the occasion with you.
However, if you want to add drama and style to the venue, then you can also hired the wedding planners to plan and take your hassle away.
For instance, hiring a favourite florist can be one of the best options since flowers are the most common thing when celebrating various events, like celebrating a wedding. 
The flower experts will know what type of flowers will suit the event also with the appropriate flower arrangement.

Among all sort of desserts, I love cheesecake the most.
With granted opportunity from POKKA, I have a chance to try out my forbidden talent.
And so, I spent my weekend in making a cheesecake with the POKKA Banana Milk drink for my family.
So, how did I do it?

There are lots of places to go for good dim sum in Klang Valley, and I'm happy to find yet another option.

Hippo Weekend Retreat at Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort @ Langkawi Kedah

Hello everyone!
It's mid June, how's you all doing so far?
I had a very good start in June!
I traveled to Perth with my family and spent one week holiday over there.
Perth is such a nice city to relax; it is quiet but has so much to offer to the tourists.
We went to many beautiful places, and I was very glad that my parents enjoyed Perth very much.
I think the most important thing is I got to recharge myself during the holiday; clear my mind and mentally prepare myself for the second half of the year.
Opps! I probably dragged too far from today's topic, I supposingly wanna share my weekend retreat trip in Langkawi with my girl, Wan back in April.
Me and Wan made the travel plan in advance without something popping up in the middle, and so happy that the trip finally happened!



Eat Drink Thai @ Kota Damansara

Thai restaurants can be found at almost every corner in Klang Valley.
I think that's because Thai food does not  like a once-in-a-blue-moon fine dining experience, instead Thai food is such a simply food culture that are always tasty, satisfying and affordable.
I mentioned a few times before that my family and I are Thai food fans, we are always on the hunt for good Thai food that's authentic.
Like my dad said, Thai food is always a great choice when you don't have good appetite because the Thai spices and herbs can stimulate your appetite even you're not hungry. :)
So happy to came across Eat Drink Thai at Kota Damansara, and I was very surprised by the delicious quality of food over there.



NY Steak Shack @ Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall

NY Steak Shack is a western restaurant that remind me of a similar restaurant chain back in the USA.
The interior design and the casual environment look similar and the memory bring me back to my time in Michigan.
I have been to NY Steak Shack for a few times with my friends and families.
My first impression about NY Steak Shack is it gives variety of food choices and also the food are beyond expectations in the way of it tastes, pricing, and also the ambiance which inspired by NY City.
Honestly, I am pretty satisfy with their food quality with the pricing they set on their meal, and probably that explains why I have visiting this restaurant for several times.
Overall, I would say the restaurant is a mid-range western restaurant in Klang Valley.

Today, I would like to share a new restaurant that I came across during the last weekend.
Have you heard of the Mandala Cafe & Bar that situated at Publika?
Don't be surprise if you never heard of it because this restaurant is quite new which just opened in 6 months ago.
After my first visit on the last weekend, I would say that I'm very happy with how great the food are, and also absolutely loving the delightful atmosphere.
So, shall we continue to find out more about this newly opened restaurant?! :)




Top 10 Things to do in Prague, Czech Republic!

Finally, here comes my final Eastern Europe blogpost with the beautiful Prague in Czech Republic!
Someone told me that you must visit Prague once in your life time, and I really couldn't agree no more!
Prague is really gorgeous!
I think this is one of the most beautiful towns to see in Europe country, so make sure you must visit Prague if you are planning your trip to explore Eastern Europe.
Though Prague doesn't have super famous icons like Eiffel Tower in Paris, Statue of Liberty in New York City, or Big Ben in London, Prague is a historical city that involved with a rich history, an outstanding architects, a hint of romance, and happening nightlife.
The city became a popular spot for travelers from all over the world, so I think the only drawbacks of visiting Prague is the big crowds everywhere, no matter they are local people or tourists.
We spent one full day wandering around in Prague city, hence I'm hoping my today's post has enough to put the best things in Prague that able to help you while organizing your itinerary. :)




Kungfu Steam Seafood 蒸功夫 @ The Cube, Bandar Puteri Puchong

Hey guys!
Welcome back to my food channel!
Do you still remember about the Kungfu Steam Seafood 蒸功夫 I blogged in last year?
Kungfu Steam Seafood is all about having the freshest ingredients steamed on your table, which is also the best way to taste the natural flavours of all kinds of seafood.
The concept is pretty similar to steamboat, but instead of boiling the food, everything is steamed under a special steamer appliance with digital control on each table.
If you would like to know more about how it actually works, feel free to click HERE to read my previous post. :)
On the last weekend, I went back to Kungfu Steam Seafood to taste a number of amazing new main dishes that they just launched recently.
Ready to check it out?! Jom, let's go!

Hippo x Kraków Poland Travel Blog

Coming back to my Eastern Europe vacation today.
I know I've been taking so long to finish blogging about my trip.
When my friends still see me updating my blog about the Eastern Europe trip, they were like "har, still updating?"
#yalor I still need sometimes to finish my travel posts in Eastern Europe.
But....this is gonna be the second last post, so I'm hoping you will continue to stay here with me!
Today, I'll be blogging about the fifth stop in our 2 week tour in Eastern Europe, and I fell in love instantly with the beautiful Kraków in Poland.
I never expected I would love Kraków so much.
Indeed, I never really thought of Poland as a place I wanted to visit.
Kraków is so much more beautiful than I thought it would be, and it's a city that I'd love to go back one day for a little bit longer.




Where To Go for Cafe-Hopping in Bangkok?

Today, I'm gonna throwback my cafe-hopping on my last trip to Bangkok.
During my trip in December 2017/January 2018, I stayed in Bangkok about a week.
If you are on my Instagram @mizhippo, you probably know that I have been to Bangkok many times; at least once a year, and usually I only spent 4 days 3 nights just for the local Thai food and shopping.
This time, I decided to make a one week trip in Bangkok to make sure I have enough time to hunt down some cafes in Bangkok.
I'm a big fans of cafe-hopping, no matter if I'm in KL or other countries, I just love to spend my times at a place where I can chill out with my favourite cup of coffee.
As far as I know, there are many amazing cafes in Bangkok, indeed too many!
I have seen many Thai cafes on social channels and many of them offer very good vibes and atmosphere as in overall.
Well, after I visited some cafes during my trip, I can't deny that many of them are really good and also much better than the ones in KL in terms of the interior, ambiance, and coffee quality.



Derma365 @ 365 days of Care for Your Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can be very disturbing.
It disturbs our daily life, prevent us from taking part in certain activities, and limit our choice of skincare and cosmetics.
Basically, sensitive skin can be a massive drag!
There are many different factors that can cause sensitive skin, such as allergies, harsh ingredients, stress, age, hormone changes etc.
And some may caused by environment factors, for example air pollution temperature change from dry air-conditioned interiors to hot and humid exteriors and lack of hydration.
If the person who has sensitive skin, he/she will suffer from uncomfortably "tight", itchy, dry or cracking skin.
So, how do you take care for it?
The answer is choose a right product that is formulated, especially for the sensitive skin type to pamper your skin. :)

Any Malay readers here?
Hari Raya is approaching soon, Muslim friends must be busy preparing a scrumptious and mouth watering delicacies to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Apart from the delectable dishes, I believe you all must also be busy shopping for new clothes for yourself and also the rest of your family.
So, today's post is all about the new fashion collection from Primavalet.
Primavalet is the biggest fashion store in Malaysia which offers a wide range of ready-to-wear clothing for men, women and kids under one same roof.
Last week, I was invited to attend their fashion hub 2018 at the Hotel Majestic Kuala Lumpur to enjoy their brand new Hari Raya collections in this year.





Aurora Italia @ Mid Valley Megamall

I have a decent amount of fashion accessories.
Many women they look fantastic wearing jewelries like necklaces, earrings, and bracelets on them, but I always feel very unlike myself.
Just like some women they feel uncomfortable wearing a sharp red lipsticks, I feel uneasy wearing jewelries on myself.
So, if I would like to purchase the jewelry for myself, I will always go for a minimalist design which are able to cooperate with my daily outfit inspirations.
Besides, another reason that I don't bother to put any fashion accessories is because I think jewelries is a kind of a hassle as I always have to taken out before I hop in a shower or I sweat up a storm during my workout.
For that reason, I usually prefer a long lasting jewelries, which means I can wear it 24/7 without taking it off.
I came across Aurora Italia jewelry while meeting up a friend for a cup of coffee at Mid Valley shopping mall during the last weekend.
Much to my surprise, it fulfilled my requirements because I can tailor my own jewelries based on my personal taste and preference!

Budapest is the capital and also the most popular city of Hungary.
It is the largest city in the European Union, and that's why it is worth a paradise for explorers to visit.
Due to the limited amount of time during the trip, we only stayed in Budapest for one and a half days.
It's definitely not enough, so in this blogpost, I will be sharing the main highlights of my trip in Budapest.
