I always on the go outdoors, I might not be as active as some of my other friends in outdoor sports activities, but nevertheless, I relish brisk walking, and sometimes jungle trekking and so on... and also spending time in the pool etc...
Did you know if you are an active person outdoors, you do need a
powerful sunscreen to stay protected especially since we are living in a humid climate that often makes applying sunscreen kinda difficult.
CANMAKE is a popular Japanese cosmetic and makeup brand that
has been constantly delighting fashion-conscious teenage girls, trendy
executives & professional makeup artist... CANMAKE has somewhat brought the
kawaii culture to Malaysia with its innovative products that is beautifully packaged

I was over at the Sunway Putra Mall and it was delightful to
see the Main Atrium buzzing with excitement and chatter of the kids from The
Salvation Army who were there for the book presentation of Sunway Putra Mall’s
Give the Gift of Reading campaign.
The Christmas season or any festive season for that matters
is always a great time to start thinking about helping other people. This
includes providing food, clothing and toys for families to enable them to
experience the joy of the Christmas Season. Giving warmth, love and hope.
That’s what Christmas should be all about. Christmas and other festive seasons
is after all a time to share our good fortune with our neighbours or those in
need. And when we do that, it is also the time to reflect on how we can make
those in need a little happier, and learn to be grateful for what we have, and
to share a little of what we have to those in need..
So yours truly was over at the Grand Seasons Hotel where
they held their CSR activity with both the Rumah Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary and
also the Rumah Charis Christian kids…
I am one of the many Malaysian women facing the problem of having oily yet dehydrated
skin because of our Malaysian humidity....
Did you know our skin tends to dry up faster when under air-conditioning, in an
aircraft or even when we are outdoors under the scorching hot sun... This is why it is important for us to carry a face mist in our bag and spray frequently on our skin to maintain a hydrated skin. While in many cases, that may just be a quick fix to your problem, Hada Labo’s Kiwamizu Lotion actually promises and delivers a lasting hydrating effect.
Don't you think it can be so frustrating at times when you run out of battery especially when you are waiting for an important call or email... or how annoying it is when your phone lag, and waste your time by taking it's own sweet time to start up and slowly allow you to access your device. I have been through that and I swear some moments like this can almost make you fling your smartphone to the wall or into the drain/lake... but oh dear, please don't do it... I am just saying it..... but well, I have good news...
finally, we Malaysians can use a smartphone without frustrations!
As a huge fan of Althea Korea, the K-Beauty online shop, I was definitely delighted to see them launching their mobile application...
This of course caps off a
successful year for Southeast Asia’s No.1 K-Beauty destination. Did you know this year alone, Althea expanded to 3 new
countries (Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand) after Malaysia and Singapore in 2015.
There are so many things to buy over at ezbuy and so you will seriously be spoilt for choice... I was just so amazed at the selection of things you can purchase there and even more so at the pricing when I first clicked on the site to check it out...
Since then it has been my favorite place to shop for clothing for myself and my kids as well as buy other things as well...
The villagers from the Semai Tribe of Kampung Pos Woh in Tapah were given a chance to enjoy an early jolly Christmas with singing
and dancing, as they welcomed the volunteers with a traditional Sewang dance.
Have you ever been frustrated by your network
provider... Those frustrating moments
like when you are trying to upload an Instagram photo but it decides to take 5
hours to upload because, your network provider just doesn’t care that you are
paying for 3G or 4G or maybe how about when you are kind of lost and trying to
check for directions on Waze or Google maps, but your network provider decides
to make things harder for you by disappearing…
I don’t know about you, but I
sure have gone through those moments... can the stress can probably cause one of the veins somewhere in my body to pop....
Our skin loses elasticity and radiance as we age... This would be because aging makes our skin more
susceptible to dryness as well as becoming thinner and paler. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to incorporate targeted treatments into our skincare routine to treat and try to stop the effects of aging.

Gel. The 3D Perfect Gel is a multifunctional 5-in-1 moisturizer

Yours truly was fortunate to be among the first few to attend the opening of the new Laneige store at Pavilion Elite.. For those who are wondering where it is, it is just adjacent to the Pavilion KL and on the same floor and row with Chakri Palace, Chatime and Dome at Pavilion KL.
The Laneige boutique will be on the 4th floor of the Pavilion Elite, alongside some of South East Asia's biggest brands and new concept stores..
From Lucasfilm comes the first of
the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One:
A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. The time line is set between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope
In this time
of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the
plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction...
Growing up with the Star Wars movie franchise made me inevitably a fan, maybe not a super duper fanatic fan, but a big fan, nevertheless.... so when I received an invitation for TGV
Cinemas Sdn Bhd (TGV) launching of its newest multiplex, at the new Sunway Velocity mall, I was so very thrilled...
The new TGV Cinemas in the Sunway Velocity mall happens to be housing Malaysia’s
largest IMAX screen; and the first apportioned with luxury Indulge seats.
I don't know about you, but I love IKEA, it is always a treat stepping into an IKEA store and smelling the almost therapeutic fresh pine scent that I can so associate with IKEA...
Anyway, FYI, IKEA recently announced the launch of its Let’s Play for Change campaign for this year's holiday season, of course.... This campaign is a global initiative that contributes towards children’s development and learning through the sales of the IKEA Play range.
Almost everyone wants to find happiness… it can be pretty
exhausting and every day you can find so many people who are just swamped by
misery and depression and some allow themselves to just sink in further,
thinking happiness is just elusive.. These people think they've tried
everything and happiness still escapes them.
I can see dead people.. err.. ok.. I mean I can see so many
sad and depressed people, some people are just so full of anger, some of these
people are so full of misery and some are so

I have a confession to make…I am one of those who rarely
bring my cat to the vet… but well, I
recently realized my folly. I am one of about 40 percent of cat owners have
never quite bring their cats to the veterinarian….
I had the same mindset as these people since I was a busy
working mother juggling jobs/ family time etc… and yes, I thought my cats are
independent, self sufficient and healthy…, so why should I waste time bringing
my cats to the vet…..
Yours truly was over at the ICE Gallery in Pantai Sentral
Park with my daughter to celebrate and check out IJM Land’s Good Coffee Day 2.0 there…

to be Kuala Lumpur’s One and Only Urban Forest City is a 58-acre integrated
city development with a gross development value of RM2.5 billion. This
township, set against the beautiful 200 acre forest in Bukit Kerinchi is believed
to consist of 7 residential phases and 6 commercial phases should be completed
in about 10-15 years time and should accommodate some 15,000 residents…

my food and I also love snacking… and therefore, from time to time I do some
Did you know that the toxin in your body cause you to feel
tired and even drain you out so much so that you might have had 8 hours of
sleep but you still feel just on an all time low… and this causes you to age
faster … besides that, sometimes it also causes an outbreak of rashes, or pimples, and I am one of those who gets occasional rashes where I would just be spending minutes scratching and scratching until it turns bright red.....
Yours truly here was

Yesterday my daughter's pet cat was lying listless and on the verge of death at the bottom of the cage.. It sure was terrifying to see a normally healthy cat so helpless and lifeless, so I quickly got ready and we tried taking to some vets, many which were not opened!!! It was definitely a VERY stressful morning...
We finally found a vet which was opened and they told us that Beebo the cat had urinary infection and a swollen bladder. His heartbeat was just so slow and his body temperature was also dropping drastically... he was practically dying. To treat him and get him well would cost me about RM800++ and it could be more at that clinic.
There is an upcoming Indonesian –Malay movie by Fimtab Unik
Sdn Bhd which I am pretty keen on watching…. Aku Bukan Spy aka Spy in Love which
is actually a Comedy-Action-Romance with a dramatic plot directed by Indonesian

with the likes of Hamish Daud, Ray Sahetapy, Shafira Umm, Keith Foo, Siti

Since the year end school holidays are already beginning, it
is probably the time to plan a nice family holiday… Singapore is can be an
amazing place to visit with your children... and here are 8 places you really
have to bring the kids that I really recommend all parents planning a holiday
with their little ones, but even if you are not a parent, these places are just
as amazing to visit...
If you are staying anywhere near Sepang, or traveling anywhere via KLIA, you should really head over to Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA Sepang because the Year End Sale
is back! It's the best time to indulge in all your festive shopping for yourself and your loved ones...
Anyway, the outlet mall has decked their halls come up with a host of fun activities to
engage its patrons to celebrate the festive holidays and usher in 2017 .
If there is something we are often scared of yet intrigued and curious about it would be the unexplained paranormal phenomena... a place where the supernatural realm transcends our natural physical laws...
Many people, both young and old are fascinated by this... thus the popularity of ghost stories, or tales of the supernatural...including, yours truly and her daughter...
Mosquitoes might be tiny but they are among the most dangerous creatures in the world. They are the source and carriers of deadly human diseases such as yellow fever, malaria, dengue fever and more recently.... Zika. unfortunately, we live in a tropical country where mosquitoes thrive and it does not quite help when we have some irresponsible neighbours who let mosquitoes breed in their pails, pots, rubbish area etc...and yes, believe me I know how it feels when my husband was in hospital for dengue and then it was my elder daughter and me... it is sure no fun being in the hospital being warded for dengue, rather a painful experience since the doctors have to withdraw blood from you every day to check on your blood platelets and have you put on the drip...
Personally for me, I think smelling nice is very important if you want to make a good impression on anyone... Nothing turns me off more then bad body odor. Some people might give the excuse that they cannot afford nice perfumes, but guess what, it is not quite the truth, not when there are some great and very affordable fragrances around...
Recently, Syahirah, the brand exclusively for young Muslim women launched its new
