What to Eat and Drink in GuangZhou 吃在广州 @ Guangzhou, China

Hey guys! Welcome back to my Guangzhou post!
My last travel post about Guangzhou was in 3 weeks ago, with the recommended place to stay, "Royal Stars Apartment Shamian Branch 珠光星御国际公寓(广州沙面店)".
If you are interested to check out the place I stayed during my trip, you can click HERE to find out more.
As for today's sharing, it will be based on my food hunting in Guangzhou.
Guangzhou is really a place for good food, some Chinese people even say that Eat In Guangzhou 吃在广州 to highlight the place is a food heaven.
For me, Guangzhou is the home of Cantonese cuisine where the tastes of food are much acceptable and decent to people compare to other places in China, like Beijing etc.
I've been to Guangzhou several times, my first visit to Guangzhou was the year 2009, and one thing I'm missing the place is their food!
It's not easy to find what's best to eat in Guangzhou, so I hope my post would give you some ideas where to hunt some good food and drinks if you are traveling to Guangzhou with your family and friends.
So yea! Are you ready? Let's go!

The Irish boy band, BOYZONE is coming to perform one final concert "Thank you and Goodnight Farewell" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in this month, 14th June 2019 at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam!

Lai Je Sunday Market @ Restaurant Istimewa Lai Je 丽姐私房菜

Hey guys!
Happy Friday!
What are your plans for the coming weekend?
Last weekend, I visited a Sunday Market located at Mahkota Cheras with my girl friends.
The Sunday Market was pretty interesting, and we spent there for an hour or two; it's not too big but fun.
If you read my previous food review about Restaurant Istimewa Lai Je 丽姐私房菜 back in last year October, you should know about this restaurant that derived from Bukit Tinggi.
But if you missed that out, it's okay, you can click on the direct link at HERE to get to know about the restaurant and what kind of food they offer.
Overall, they have very delicious and special menu that created and made by themselves.
I introduced it to my family and friends, and they all like their food very much.
And the newly opened Sunday Market is located just right in front of the restaurant of Lei Je, where they sell their fresh from farm vegetables and fruits from Bukit Tinggi, organic products, homemade food and snacks, and handmade crafts.
The farm fresh vegetables attracts me the most. :)

LE MENT Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo @ Japan

Every woman wants to have beautiful hair; no matter if she has short or long, curly or straight, smooth and and shiny hair always makes you happy and also gives good impression.
So do I, I also want a nice healthy hair.
Frizzy and dry hair not only makes you look unhappy, it also makes you look older than you.
That's the reason why good hair products play an important role in having healthy hair.
Starting from the age of 20, ever since I started the chemicals treatments like colouring and perming, my hair becomes dry, rough and frizzy.
I was really upset!
I was recommended many hair products from different hairdressers but still they couldn't help.
I came across Le Ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing & Shampoo that come all the way from Japan, and would like to share with you all today.
The main thing about the Le Ment shampoo is to give your hair the boost it needs and also can be your effective scalp saviour!
Imagine if the base of scalp condition is not good, there is no other ways to maintain the beauty of your hair no matter how expensive the hair care products you use, and also how many amount of conditioner you use for your hair.
So yea! Get ready with me to say "Bye" to your bad hair days now! :)

All-New Dr. Wu Glutalight™ Whitening System @ First Commercial Product Use the Japanese Patented Glutalight

All women, no matter their age and race, want to have even, clear and fair skin.
It's because many people think that white or fair skin makes you pretty and attractive.
所谓的一白遮三丑; 皮肤白, 就可以把其它许多脸部的缺点都遮盖.
My skin was dark when I was teenager, probably because I spent a lot of time outdoors in bright sunlight.
I was so regret that I did not take good care of my skin early. :(
So, by the time I grown up, when I realized the importance of a fair and glowing skin for woman, I started to look for ways and products to lighten and whitening my skin.
Not only I spent a lot on buying whitening products like face sheet masks, I also think it's a big challenge and also not an easy task after all.
Well, some people may go for pills or injections to make your skin white and fair, but seriously I'm so afraid of the side effects that come later in the future.
I prefer to use products that work for whitening and reduce dark spots.

Where to Stay in Guangzhou @ Royal Stars Apartment Shamian Branch 珠光星御国际公寓(广州沙面店)

Hey ya!
My Guangzhou trip 2019 is ready now! #yippie
I visited Guangzhou in the end of April, and stay there for 7D6N.
This is not my first time visiting Guangzhou, I've been there many times when I worked at a furniture trading company.
I used to travel to Guangzhou and Shenzhen for at least 3-4 times in a year to visit suppliers and also do some inspection works.
But honestly, while traveling there for work, I didn't really get to explore a lot about the city.
So, when Lik said let's go to Guangzhou, I was like "why not!"
I would want to take a selfie with the Canton Tower and I really miss lots of food in Guangzhou. #lol
I'm going to blog about the places we went and also the good food we had during our trip.
But before that, let me share the serviced apartment we stayed for this time because I like the place a lot, and hopefully to recommend it to you all if you are planning to visit Guangzhou in the future.

Althea A'bloom + Althea's Angels First Gathering @ Softsrve Ice Cream, Dessert & Balloon Bar

It was such a great honoured to be invited to the first ever Althea's Angels gathering plus new product range, A'bloom in the last month.
The party was wonderful with beautiful people, lovely decorations, yummylicious desserts and beverages, and also got to try out the whole range products from Althea.
Without further ado, let's get on the party with Althea!

Learn About Mycliks.com @ Your New Online Partner

I guess most of you are familiar with selling and buying stuffs online.
Well, at least for me, I've always like to do online shopping, because online stores apparently offer more choices of products compare to the physical or retail stores.
Agree not?! :)
Not only that, I also think online stores sometimes provide a very highly competitive in pricing and also there are more exclusive deals and promotions when shopping online.
On the other hand, as being a shopaholic, I always want to get rid of the stuffs I don't wear at the end of every season to keep my closet up to date, so I usually will sell my secondhand clothing, bags, fashion accessories online.
There are so many websites for selling and buying stuffs online, and today, I would like to share a new online platform, Mycliks.com with you all.

Where to Stay in Busan @ Ibis Ambassador Busan City Centre

Hey guys!
Welcome back to my travelog!
I've blogged about "Top 10 Things To Do In Busan For 5D4N" on my previous travelog, if you are interested to know more about Busan, you can click the link right HERE.
The post basically gives an overall view about Busan city and would be able to give you some travel tips when you traveling in Busan.
As for today, I'm going to share the hotel I stayed during my 5D4N in Busan.
I know there are a lot of hotel and Airbnb choices out there, so sometimes it can be really difficult to look for a suitable one.
So, if you are planning to go for Busan trip, I would recommend you to consider Ibis Ambassador Busan City Centre.
I must say that the hotel has far exceeded my expectations, and the stay was literally worth every penny.
It is clean, modern, and convenient.
I booked this hotel through the travel package from AirAsiaGo; I paid RM2000 just 2 weeks before my trip for the entire package with return airfare and 4 night stays hotel.
Without further ado, let's have a room tour with me now!

Prebiotic Series to Promote Enrichment of Skin's Good Bacteria @ Murad Malaysia

The surface of our skin is home to carefully balanced collection of trillions of living organism such as bacteria and yeast.
This microbiome that's made up of bacteria and yeast provides the skin with much needed nutrients and helps create a barrier against assaults which leads to a healthy and amazing looking skin.
Today, our preoccupation with anti-bacteria products and harsh cleansers not only destroys bad bacteria, but also the good bacteria that's maintaining our skin's ecosystem.
Couple that with the harsh environmental condition, such as exposure to allergen and toxin, as well other factors like lifestyle, age, emotion, community, diet, and hygiene products we find ourselves battling with skin issues.
In fact, 93% of people think that the skin microbiome and its homestasis play major roles in skin's health.
To help solve this problem, Murad Malaysia launched its latest invention, the Prebiotic Series to bring multiple benefits to power healthy skin!

Top 10 Things To Do In Busan For 5D4N @ Busan, South Korea

It took me a while to think of how to start my travel blog in Busan.
It's already been six months since I traveled to Busan, and during the last few months, I received a lot of messages from you guys asking me about the attraction places to go, what are the important sights in the city, and also what are the must eats in Busan.
I remember the last time I went to Busan was about 3 years ago.
It was a very nice trip with my girl friends; though it was just a 2D1N stay in Busan with a basic overview of the city, but the city left me with a very positive impression and since then I always wanted to go back again.
This time, I brought my parents, especially my dad who never been to South Korea before.
I'm hoping to give my dad a good memory and impression about South Korea, so I decided to bring him to Busan instead of Seoul.
I think Busan is relatively easy to get around, people are friendly, and the city is not as crowded as Seoul yet pretty good for a relaxing holiday.
We traveled 5D4N in Busan, and I decided to put down a list of things to do and places to go in Busan for you guys, hopefully the post will be helpful for you if you're planning to go there.
Let's cut all the craps, and get it started!

Sun Life Malaysia @ The Kettlebowl Turns Three Fitness Party

It's the World Health Day on the last Sunday, 7th April 2019.
World Health Day is the day raises awareness of health issues and concerns around the world and provides an opportunity for people to get involved in activities that can lead to better health.
I've never celebrated any World Health Day before, and this is definitely my first time celebrating and also with a large group of people.
I was glad to be able to participate the one of the massive fitness parties in Malaysia, "The Kettlebowl Turns Three Fitness Party" that in collaboration with Sun Life Malaysia.
The fitness party was so happening with a stellar line-up of instructors, and each classes present a unique workout experience to the participants.
It was really a super-fun workout sessions, with many happy faces and satisfied souls throughout the whole event. :)

The 1st Oxygenated Water in Malaysia @ Oxgen Water

Without water, a human wouldn't last a week.
Without oxygen not even 5 minutes, a human would start struggling and brain cell start dying.
These are the two most important essences that every part of our body need to survive.
For that reason, Avani Oxygen Water Corporation Sdn Bhd have joined these two elements together and created the 1st oxygenated water in Malaysia.
This is the latest discovery of fusing the oxygen and tap water together to make one remarkably oxygen bottled water; giving access to a restorative punch of added oxygen whenever and wherever you need and also helping us stay perfectly tuned and running as efficiently as possible.
Last week, I came across the Oxgen water and I thought it would be good to share it around as this probably could be one of the daily product for maintaining good health. :)

First On-The-Way E-Delivery Service in Malaysia @ Boon4

Guys, today I would like to share with you all an easy way to earn extra cash.
I believe that earning extra income can change your life; you can pay off your debt, save for big purchases such as a vacation, become more diversified with your income streams etc.
Now, with a little extra car space and the flexibility to make a pit stop, you could cash in by picking up and delivering other people's stuff along your way.
If you are, say, headed from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh, happen to see that somebody is offering you to pay RM180, or maybe a shorter distance from Kajang to Klang that offering to pay RM50 for you to pick something up on the way, why not do it?
The pick up and e-delivery might only add a half hour to your trip and you're going anyway, so why not earn some extra cash in your pocket or maybe help defray the cost of petrol?
Here's how you can make money on your trip with the new on-demand service, Boon4.

What is Boon4?

Instant Spaghetti Ready in Just 3 Minutes @ Master Pasto

In this fast-paced society, all of us want things quick and easy because time is a valued commodity.
For some people, preparing and cooking a meal may seem like a drag that requires lots of times and efforts.
Everyone need a fast, money saving and easy way to settle everyday meals or for some people they may just want a simple meal to fill up their hunger.
Cooking can be a portrait as it requires a lot of prep work.
You have to go shop for groceries, come back home to peel and cut vegetables, prepare slice meats, stir fried each dishes, washing the cookwares etc. 
Though some meals are easy to prepare such as spaghetti which probably takes about 15 minutes, but sometimes even 15 minutes can seem like too much when you're on a tight schedule.
Well, Master Pasto heard you, and have responded to your needs as they have developed Instant Spaghetti that can ready in just 3 minutes!
No peel, no cut, no slice, just pour everything into and your meal is ready to serve.
The simple meal reheats quickly that ensures you have something warm and hearty in your belly everyday. :)

Advancing the Future of Malaysia’s Digital Landscape @ WeChat Pay MY

Come on! Let's make some noise!
Wechat Pay MY, one of the most popular mobile payment solutions is finally available in Malaysia now!
I'm not sure about you, but this is really a good news for me indeed as I've been waiting to use Wechat Pay in Malaysia ever since I knew about the app through my friends in China.
I heard a lot of good things regarding the app when traveling to China in few years back.
Wechat is not only a messaging app, but it also transformed into an app where you can do everything from payments; from major supermarkets to the smallest of street vendors and taxis, you can pay almost everything with Wechat almost everywhere in China, as long as you have a Chinese bank account that link to Wechat app.
Well, after knowing how this successful e-wallet has changed the way China approaches payment, I seriously hoping to have it in Malaysia. :)

Teva Spring 2019 GC100 Collection for Outdoor Enthusiasts @ Teva Malaysia

Admit it. Everyone needs a good pair of shoes to take you anywhere.
Whether they are used to the gym, for running, exercise, traveling, hiking, or to complete your casual outfits, shoes are an essential part of life.
I love to buy shoes, and seriously I've lost count of how many pairs of shoes I've bought over the years.
Whenever my mum opened my shoe closet, my mum's nag session would begin. #lol
I think we all know that a proper pair of shoes are super important, especially for running and hiking.
Without a good one, you'll risk injury, discomfort and pain; while if you got the right ones, it can make you feel like you're flying high.
Till recently, I came across Teva, a brand from the USA, that born out of necessity to prevent sandals from floating downstream, a resourceful river guide strapped two Velcro watch-brands to a pair of old flip-flips.

Eat Thai, Visit Thailand 2019 @ Mr Tuk Tuk S

When I first visited Thailand in 2006, I admired the city so much and wanted to visit there every year. 
I've been to few places in Thailand such as Bangkok, Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Phuket, and Uttradict. 
Been thinking to explore Hua Hin and Khao Yai in this year, but still planning it with my friends.
For myself, I think Thailand is really an awesomely vivacious country and really one of my favourite place to visit, especially when I crave for a relaxing short gateway trip away from KL city.
The country is good for hawk food hunting, cheap shopping, best nightlife, cafe-hopping, natural attraction visiting etc.
If you are also a fans of Thailand too, here's the good news for you!
The Tourism Authority of Thailand, Malaysia (TAT) unveils its EAT THAI, VISIT THAILAND 2019” campaign, to mark a collaboration between tourism and restaurants in Malaysia to send you to visit Thailand! #yea.
This collaboration is in line with the Amazing Thailand’s “Open to the New Shades” campaign, focusing on five main travel sectors to help international visitors experience the Kingdom from a new perspective.
The concept includes Gastronomy, Arts and Crafts, Thai Culture, Nature, and Thai Way of Life.

Celebrates St. Patrick’s With the Largest Sláinte in Malaysia @ GUINNESS

What's good about the month of March?
For the kids, probably it's the one week long school holidays.
For the adults, well the answer is the famous St. Patrick’s celebrations.
With its Irish origins, GUINNESS, Malaysia’s and Ireland’s most favourite stout is the perfect choice to accompany the festivities no matter where you are in the world; be it Dublin, Boston or Kuala Lumpur.
The vibrant two-day festival at The Gasket Alley were filled with amazing line-up of live performances, fun and games, food and drinks.
It's my first time celebrating St. Patrick Festival with GUINNESS and I really enjoyed myself at the party on the Saturday evening, though the weather was so warm recently in KL. #hehe

Sinful Seafood and Dessert @ Plaza Arkadia, Desa Park City

Hey guys, the weekend is here!
Do you have any plans?
It may be a great chance to have a gathering with friends and families. :)
Well, last weekend, I paid a visit to a new restaurant located at Plaza Arkadia.
This is my first time visiting Desa Park City after knowing about this place for a long time. 
Upon my first visit, I was pretty impressed with the surrounding.
Despite the recent hot weather in the city, the place was crowded and happening with a shopping bazaar, restaurants, cafes and bars.
After done some shopping around the bazaar, I had my lunch date with my friends at one of the newly opened restaurant, Sinful Seafood and Dessert.

Gumbatte Towards 1 Million Gum Health Checks Campaign 2019 @ Systema

We all think that we take care of our teeth and gums everyday.
We brush our teeth morning and night, and also go for annual check-ups at the dentist.
Some of us even floss.
But, do you really know how healthy your mouths are?
Over 94% Malaysian adults suffer from gum disease, one of the major causes of tooth loss.
Yet, oral health is often perceived as being less important than general health but this neglect must stop due to the seriousness of the issue because poor oral health is often associated with other health problems.
So,  Let's do some gum self check today!
Gums look red? Bleeding gums when brushing? Gums bleed on its own? Swollen gums? Pus between gums and teeth? Persistent bad breath? Teeth look elongated? Gaps between gums and teeth? Loose teeth? Teeth moving from its original position? Pain when bite?
If you experience one of the above symptoms, you should seek advises from your dentist right now!

Pork Noodles Fans MUST TRY @ BB Sun Kee Restaurant 信記豬肉粉

Recently, I came across a very nice pork noodle that I want to highly recommend it to the pork noodle fans.
I'm a huge fans of pork noodles since I was teenager.
I often crave for pork noodles, because I enjoy eating a soup dish.
I used to satisfy my pork noodle cravings at the Penang Rood Pork Mee located at Bandar Puchong.
I went there at least once to twice a week whenever I thought of eating pork noodles.
Till recently, I found that pork noodles from BB Sun Kee Restaurant tastes really so much better.
I actually posted this place on my IG stories whenever I visited the place, so if you've followed me on my IG @mizhippo, you probably already knew about this place. :)
Well, let's cut all the craps and follow me to enjoy a hot and flavouful pork noodles at BB Sun Kee Restaurant!

DORAEMON Pop-Up Store @ Gateaway@Klia2 Mall, Sepang.

If you asked me what's my favourite cartoon character in my childhood days.
The answer definitely goes to DORAEMON!
I remembered when I was a kid, I read and watched a lot about Doraemon together with my siblings.
My parents really bought a lot of books and video tapes about Doraemon (wondering where are all these comics and video tapes now) :)
Doraemon is a famous Japanese manga and anime that loved not only by all Japanese children and adults, it is also one of the most famous cartoon characters in all over the world.
I think everyone of us like Doraemon's pocket with all the amazing tools that Doraemon uses to help Nobita everytime at everywhere.
For me, another reason that I like Doraemon is because he always makes us believe that one day our dreams will come true if we work hard on it.
So, if you are also a fans of Doraemon, Doraemon is now here for you in Malaysia!!!

The Most famous K-Drama Filming Location in Seoul @ Ihwa-dong Mural Village

I watched quite a few K-dramas in last two month.
Completed the Memory of Alhambra, and Encounter/Boyfriend in January, and then the Priest, The Beauty Inside, and The Last Empress in February.
I love the story line of The Beauty Inside and I think this is one of the best K-drama in 2018; I also quite like the Memory of Alhambra because each plots are interesting yet the ending was so killing; I watched the Encounter/Boyfriend because of Song Hye-kyo but then I fall into Park Bo-gum in this drama; well, I think Priest is not really my type of drama.
And, I just finished The Last Empress during last weekend, and I have to say that this is really a best one if you do not like romance dramas.
The storyline really impressed me because each episodes will leave a big question about what's going to happen next, and that's why I had a crazy K-drama marathon during the weekend.
Oppsss, I think I've dragged too far from my today's topic, let't come back!
So, during my last trip in Seoul, I visited one of the famous K-drama filming place with my Korean girl friend.
Gail asked me if I have any places that wanted to go, and the first one that came into my mind is the Ilwa-dong Mural Village.
I wanted to go to this place for a very long time, because I've seen this place appeared in many K-dramas before, such as the Rooftop Prince, Failing For Innocence, The Doctors, Goblin, Strong Woman Do Bong-soon, Are You a Human Too?
Also, if you watched the latest Encounter/Boyfriend starring by Song Hye-Kyu and Park Bo-gum, this is also the shooting place at the ending of the last episode.
Without further ado, let me show you how beautiful the Ilwa-dong Mural Village is!

New Matcha Sakura Tea Series Inspired by the Matcha Traditions of Japan @ The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®

Tea in Asia has always been more than a beverage, with tea drinking remaining central to various ceremonies that are still taking place today.
And in recent years, as society progresses and our stress levels increase, more and more people are looking to cultural traditions to enhance their lives.
From yoga and meditation to ancient super foods, many practices from Asia’s oldest cultures are seeing a revival as people strive to embrace a life that is more balanced and holistic.
As a result, it’s no longer unusual to find age-old beverages such as Japanese green tea on shelves and in eateries, and greater interest in experiencing the serenity of tea appreciation ceremonies.
Though it’s been around for a long time, many aren’t aware that green tea retains its beautiful colour because it’s not fermented and thus retains more of its nutritional benefits.
It may also be revelation to some that Japanese green tea comes in different forms, with the most common being sencha and matcha, whereby sencha is brewed as whole leaves while matcha is ground into a powder and mixed with water, resulting in a creamier flavour.
If you are any sort of matcha green tea fans or match drinkers, today's post will get you excited because The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® (CB&TL) is launching a new Matcha Sakura Tea Series that inspired by the Matcha Traditions all the way from Japan!

Suu Balm For Eczema Prone Skin @ Watsons Malaysia

Do you know that there are around 1 in 10 Malaysians suffer from eczema and even more shockingly 2 in 10 children.
It is always a real suffer to manage with eczema because it impacts on people lives which is incredibly challenging and at the same time it is with no proven cure available.
I first knew about eczema through one of my girl friends, who had suffered from eczema since she was a little girl.
She told me about her eczema story, like she cannot wear short skirts or hot pants just like other girls, and need to cover up herself when meeting people because there will be inflamed skin on her body.
Also, the discomfort of the itching and dry skin can lead to her poor sleep, sometimes she has to scratch her skin all night in bed.
After she gave birth to her kids, one of her daughters also developed eczema like her on her face and body.
She told me it's so heartbreaking to see her daughter often scratch her arms, body in midnight.
I think eczema is not only red rashes and itchiness scratching, it is also an emotional burden.

Where to Cafe-Hopping in Seoul? @ South Korea

When I travel, or wherever I travel, other than visiting the attraction places, have the local cuisines and foods, I always like to seek out a cafe.
During my recent trip in South Korea, I've visited some unique cafes in Seoul.
I received some of your messages asking me about cafe-hopping places in Korea, so I guess here's the post for you all!
There are many reasons why I like to cafe-hop while on a holiday, and one of the main reasons is because I like to have a space to relax, gather thoughts and also to drink their coffees.
I'm not a coffee expert, but in fact I need at least one cup a day.
I usually like my coffee with a strong coffee taste so that I can taste an excellent coffee flavour.
Well after all, I guess I just want to find an excuse to chill. #lol

CLAIGIO LED Magic Eye Patch @ Kbeauty Malaysia

Can't believe I'm back from Seoul for 3 months already.
I haven't get enough of Seoul and hoping to revisit again in this year.
If you asked me about Seoul, I will say the place is so good about skincare and cosmetic products they have there.
If you like to shop for beauty products, it would definitely be a beauty heaven for you!
Seriously, there are so many choices and various technologies available in the market and many of them are so advanced and really beneficial to the skin.
When I walked through the Myeongdong street, it can be a little overwhelming to look through each of them and I would said many of them are way too good to ignore.
I specially like to explore their advanced facial tools to use at home because I always believe that a good home care regimen will surely help to get skin glowing, fresh and youthful.
Well, I believe everyone wants to look younger and regain the plump skin of their youth, so today I want to introduce you all one of my recent secret beauty, the CLAIGIO LED Magic Eye Patch all the way from Korea to kick away your eye bags, wrinkles, fine lines etc in order to help you stay younger in just 8 minutes!

Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser @ Althea Korea

What's the most important step in your daily skin care regimen?
In my opinion, a good facial cleansing is the most important step of the beauty routine.
Imagine if you put the daily best sunscreen, serum or ampules and moisturizer without cleansed your skin properly, would the skin care products be effective and beneficial to your skin?!
To be honest, I think a proper cleansing is the key to a clear complexion and also allow the skin care products to absorb more effectively.
An improper facial cleansing could leave your skin looking tired, dull and even more prone to breakouts.
When it comes to what type of cleanser you should use, there are various of options available including wipes, gels, oils, creams and balms.
And for today, I would like to introduce you a new cleansing product, Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser all the way from Korea.
A serum cleanser? Is that a face serum or a facial cleanser? :)
Let's check this out and also my personal review about it!

Korea's No.1 Herbal Hair Care, RYO @ Watsons Malaysia

Hair loss is conman in women.
A study research from the American Academy of Dermatology revealed that 40% of women experience visible hair loss by the age of 40 while most women who frequently colour and style their hair complain about damaged hair.
Hair loss and hair thinning are prevalent among Asian women due to environmental changes, hectic lifestyle coupled with poor living habits.
I've been suffering from hair loss and hair thinning problems in recent years.
It worries me a lot though people said it's something that completely normal for female.
Yet, it would still be great to find some solutions to help reduce or control the hair loss, right?!

Be The Best You This Valentine's Day with Lactacyd @ Lactacyd

Being a female or lady, we always put our focus heavily on our outer beauty, such as clothing, cosmetic, skin care products or even jewelries and accessories.
We always think of ways to elaborate our beauty through different channels but come to think deeply we actually had neglected the most important yet valuable thing to us.
That's our inner beauty, "miss V", the most inner private part in our female body structure.
I believe some of us may had neglected it for ages, which might lead to lots and lots of things that make her angry, just that we didn't aware of.
It is really so important to embrace a good personal hygiene practice for a number of reasons, otherwise our dearest friend miss V is going to bring some certain discomfort and inconvenient signs such as pain, dryness, irritation, itchiness, odor and other conditions in our daily life.
Seriously, maintaining vaginal hygiene should always be a priority for any woman.

Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist x Titi Kamal @ Althea Korea

Do you agree that a nice smell can be a good whisper to remind people "I'm here" or "Look, I'm right here"?
Smelling good gives you a confident boost and also can make you look more attractive in the public.
I think that's the main reason why I must apply either perfume, body mist, body lotion or deodorant before I go out.
This habit has always been a part of my lifestyle for many years because I always believe that wearing a good scent is pleasurable and also can attract people to be close to you.
I also think a good scent can also make other people around you feeling wonderful.
Seriously, for me, scent is very important, it's so evocative if you have a good smell.
Well, it is not necessary to buy an expensive perfume to create yourself an unique body chemistry; as long as you wear something good and show you make an effort to stay fresh, that's what counts.
Today, I'm going to share a new body mist that just launched at Althea recently, which likely could be your favourite scent from now on. :)

Pantene Pro-V’s Micellar Water Hair Care Range @ Watsons Malaysia

Ladies and gentlemen, which hair care product is most important for you?
Shampoo? Conditioner? Hair Treatment? Styling Products?
For myself, I think picking the right shampoo is very important in hair care regimen.because it helps to clean our hair and scalp from dirt, oil, dust, pollution and also styling products if it applied on you.
However, the question I always have is:" Which shampoo should I choose for my hair?"
I believe that major women will be same like me, as we are fear that using the wrong shampoo which strip their hair leaving it dull and dry.
Especially the humidity of the Malaysian climate proves a challenge in maintaining a clean and healthy scalp.
To overcome the worries, Pantene has pioneered the first ever Pantene Micellar Shampoo Series, pairing the "Gentle" and "Effective" cleansing benefits of the Micellar technology with its iconic Pro-V formula that nourishes the hair with vitamins and antioxidants.

ID.AZ Face Fit CU-V Tensioning Sleeping Pack @ Watsons Malaysia

I love using sleeping mask.
It becomes one of my skincare routine to fortify my skin.
I think the main reason that I like to use sleeping mask is because it is very convenient, whereby I can have it to perform its reparative functions while I'm having my beauty sleep and then wake up with a soft and hydrate skin.
I normally use sleeping mask twice a week but sometimes I use it more frequently, especially when I got back home late at night and wanted to cut down my skincare routine steps without applying too many products.
So, the fastest and the most efficient way to make sure my skin is well-rested and look more radiant and hydrated is to apply sleeping mask.
Sometimes, I really think sleeping mask is a kind of my skin saviour. :)
This month, I got to introduce a new sleeping mask all the way from Korea, which is the ID.AZ Face Fit CU-V Tensioning Sleeping Pack.
It's not my first time using the skincare products from ID-AZ;, I've used their Dermastic Premium Sheet Masks before and done a personal review for that at HERE.
I've been using this new sleeping pack for about 2 weeks, and here's everything you need to know about the ID.AZ Face Fit CU-V Tensioning Sleeping Pack.

HOLIM Giant Tea @ Mid Valley Megamall

As a bubble tea lover, I am very excited to visit the newly opened HOLIM Giant Tea during the weekend.
HOLIM is a new beverage brand that was born in Malaysia just about a month ago.
All drinks are fully made in Malaysia, with an exceptionally high standard of specialty beverages as well as their freshly made Tapioca Pearls.

K-Drama "Mr. Sunshine" @ Nonsan Sunshine Land

Hey guys!
Welcome back to my travel blog and today I'm going to bring you around the Nonsan province.
When I looked into the itinerary prior to the departure date, I was very excited about the upcoming visit in Nonsan, because this is the main filming location of the K-drama "Mr. Sunshine" by Lee Byung-hun and Kim Tae-ri.
My Korean girl friend told me that this is one of the must-watch dramas in last year.
Well, being a fan of K-dramas, I've for sure already watched it before the trip; so when I knew that we are visiting the filming location of Mr. Sunshine, it really boost my happiness.
Seriously, I really can't wait for that! :)
NONSAN, also named as "Nolmoi", meaning dusk(y) or yellow mountain, is a city in South Chungcheong Province, South Korea.
The origin of Nonsan's geographical name is from the small garden "nonmoi", which raise in the middle of farming fields, where rice paddies and mountain are said to reflect geographical features.
It's a quiet vast valley that surrounded by mountains and fields, so my first impression towards Nonsan country is the place is so friendly and peaceful.
Anyway, we only spent one afternoon in Nonsan province by visiting one of the main attractions at Nonsan Sunshine Land.

Hey ladies!
Chinese New Year is around the corner, are you already well prepared for this coming festival?
I've already done shopping for my new clothes and new shoes, thinking about changing up the colour of my hair as well, but not very sure what colour to go for this time.
Any new hair colour suggestions out there? :)
Other than that, I'm also thinking to have a hair-free skin for the festival since me and my family are planning to have a beach holiday, so I visited Wax Candy with my girl friends during the weekend.
Well, there are plenty of ways to banish body hair, such as threading, shaving, hair removal cream, and many more.
You can get rid of any unwanted hair on your body, from the public to the upper lip to arm hair easily.
I usually remove my hair using hair removal cream as I feel it's more convenient for me.
I can just do it at anytime I feel like I needed to.
Then, my girl friend introduced a new way of removing the hairs, the DPL hair removal, which is the latest technology imported from USA.
I was very curious how the DPL hair removal works, so here's my first time experience that I'm going to share in this post. :)

But do you know that milk is not only give our health a boost, but also give beauty benefits to our skin?

When traveling to South Korea, many travelers like to visit Seoul, Jeju Island, Busan, but in fact, Suncheon is definitely worth a visit too if you visit Korea.
