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.
