It was a perfectly sunny Sunday morning and there quite a number of people who chose to rise and shine with the first Zespri SunGold Kiwifest being held at Desa Park City.

I was there at 8.30am sharp but even then there were already loads of people and it was not so easy getting a car park…with the entry being free for all… I guess

Transformers Autobots Rollout in 1Utama

So yours truly was at 1 Utama Shopping Centre for a whole interesting and new event.. Hasbro (Malaysia) has put together a TRANSFORMERS brand extravaganza for fans, with different exhibits and activities that promise to bring smiles from the neophytes to even the most avid TRANSFORMERS collectors and hobbyists there at the 1 Utama Shopping Centre... 

I first learn of TRANSFORMERS from having a son, who would focus all his attention on the screen whenever TRANSFORMERS came on the TV... He was indeed a fan... and he got really lucky when my stepson who was about 6 years older then my son gave my son one of the Transformers combiner figure he (my stepson) had owned... and that was ages ago when my son was just about 10 and my stepson 16.. My son is now 20, and still a fan...

Getting Weird with Little Mix in Kuala Lumpur

My mini me and I were at KL Live on Saturday night to watch Little Mix, one of UK’s biggest girl group organized by Fat Boys Malaysia, with the main sponsor, Tune Talk - the country’s fastest growing mobile prepaid service with supporting partners – Official Music Channel,

On-The-Go Grooming and Pampering with Lip Hop

I am sure most of you would have seen the Lip Hop k-care Aqua Jelly Hair, Face & Body Gel Collection  at Guardian stores... It is hard to miss, since it comes in very attractive and vibrant colours. 

Did you know it is a very interesting and super convenient 8-in-1 multi-functional k-care innovation for head to toe, on-the-go grooming, skincare and pampering from Guardian. and I am so digging it now...

Gimme, Gimme ABBA Live in Malaysia

The story began with, "Sayang, I've got tickets to a performance... and I want to bring you along", and well, my nowadays reclusive husband (who has been kinda reclusive since last year) just said, "No!!"....  

Sighing wearily, because it was never easy trying to get him to follow me to one of my many events, I said again, " But I really think you will like this... this is a LIVE performance by a very good ABBA tribute band...."

My hubby, who is 15 years my senior, looked up from the newspapers he was reading and repeated, "ABBA?"

"Yes, sayang, and I am sure you will enjoy it. They are reputed to be very good and the princess of Kedah, (YTM Tunku Panglima Besar Kedah Dato' Seri DiRaja Tan Sri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz binti Tuanku Abdul Halim  Mu'adzam Shah) is also having them perform at her Royal Charity Gala Outdoor Concert..
My husband then looked thoughtful and replied, "Alright then, if it is ABBA...." and that was our conversation about three weeks ago....

Treasure hunting at Markets 18....

For me, there is nothing more lovely then strolling through bazaars, flea markets, markets with bric n' bracs and so on in search of unique 'treasures' you normally cannot find elsewhere... and believe me each time I wander around in any of these bazaars or Sunday/ weekend 'markets', I will come across some pretty amazing items and so on....

I was at the Markets by Jaya One recently over the past weekend (on 14 and 15 May ), and all I can say is 'Wow'....... 
It was definitely heaven there for fashion devotees, food aficionados and lifestyle enthusiasts. It was my first time there after hearing a lot about it and so I was excited and could not wait to find out more... or see what was available.... and it definitely did not disappoint at all!!!!

Barbie Exhibit Showcasing a World of Endless Possibilities

When I was little I loved my Barbie dolls. I had about 6 of them and I was crazy over them. As a mom, my girls too have their fair share of Barbie dolls....and it is a well known fact that when  a  girl  plays  with her Barbie, she can imagine everything she can become.

Nothing is impossible... whether it is as a mermaid, a princess, a superhero or an astronaut, Barbie has allowed girls to dream  and discover a world without limits.

Getting inspired by flowers....

Thanks to Butterfly Project Malaysia and AmorePacific Malaysia I was among the first few to check out an amazing new beauty brand from Korea, Mamonde (french word for ‘My World’) at the Royale Chulan Damansara... and look who their spokes model is... none other then the gorgeous Park Shin-Hye (of The Heirs and Pinnochio fame)

Being a mom and worrying about your kids...

Being a mom is never easy. A mother's priority is ensuring family's well being, especially the well being and health of her little ones. As a mom of three and step mom to two others, my life has been a roller coaster of emotions and mostly worries... I strongly believe in giving my children love, care and also encourage them to experience life, the best they can... and of course, with all these comes the worry of whether or not they are safe enough, fit enough, or healthy enough...  

Most moms can relate to the worry when your child starts looking pale, or starts having fever, or being more subdued or quiet then normal...A dozen or more questions will be racing through our minds....Is he/she ok? Why is he/ she so pale? etc...etc....

Seven Seas understand and identify with mothers on the challenges of parenthood, and know only too well the many worries that come along with the job – from whether your child is getting enough sleep and play time, to making sure they eat a healthy balanced diet. And making sure that your child receives sufficient nutrients can be tough. Did you know there are still many undernourished children with unhealthy dietary practices  here in Malaysia?

Mom, check it out.....

After a a hectic day at work, most of us have to scramble to beat the rush hour traffic; hoping to get home in time to prepare dinner for the family. Along the journey home, we frantically try to remember if there is enough fresh food in the fridge, or if the vegetables and fruits are still fresh for consumption ....

Working mothers need to juggle between running an office and running a household. 

Won't it be heaven sent there was a solution that makes lives easier?  Samsung is now providing this simple solution for moms in the form of their two-door RT7000 Refrigerator with Twin Cooling PlusTM technology, giving mums the help they deserve. How?

Warning: Dropping your smartphone is hazardous to your health

When you got yourself a nice new smartphone, that is the moment you feel most happy....., however, imagine dropping that smartphone, a week or two later....*horrors!!*

 The phone screen might not be the only thing that shows cracks. Did you know the fear of losing or breaking your smartphone creates an actual stress response inside the human body that is stronger than the fear of public speaking?! Yeah!! No kidding!!!

The study, conducted by a Hong Kong academic in collaboration with leading device protector OtterBox, uncovered how emotionally attached we are to our devices in Asia.

Strawberi Karipap Season 3 goes to Hong Kong...

My youngest daughter is a fan of Strawberi Karipap and have been watching it over the past two seasons, following the story of Nini (Mia Sara Nasuha) and Haikal (Rykarl Iskandar)with their aunt Lisa (Nelydia Senrose) and uncle Hairi (Zizan Nin)... so much so I threaten to put strawberries in her curry puff the next time I buy her some curry puffs but she said, "Eeeeuuuww...." 

So when I got invited to the meet and greet session at the Marmalade restaurant at Bangsar Village 2, my daughter was quick to say she wanted to come along to meet the cast...

RINA SALLEH Clothing Raya Collection....


Looking for a beautiful dress is easy... looking for a beautiful dress which cover the Muslim ladies' aurat is hard. After all most of the long sleeve jubah kind of dresses just look so dull and boring and make one seem older then they are... or at least that is what I use to think, right before I happen across Rina Salleh Clothing collections....

Rina Salleh Clothing started its business though social media back in 2009 via Friendster and also a blog....After a year, the brand grew and expanded their business by starting their own website, in 2010. Through this website, customers are now able to purchase the collection easily.

Movie review: High Strung

If you enjoy a colorful, kinetic neo-musical that celebrates dance, music and the boundless optimism and energy of youth, High Strung is definitely a movie you won't want to miss....

 Set in a fantasy version of New York City, it provides every essential ingredient: romance and rivalry, aspirations and obstacles, competition and conquest. 

Highly stylized in classic movie musical tradition, this picture is about people with dreams. And in the world of High Strung, dreams really do come true....

Move Young Campaign with Anlene MoveMax

People who know me will say I am childish at times, and yes, I do not deny that fact.. I may be 40 now, and that is how old I am... but well, frankly, my dear, I have never grown up, only older, as I can never stop age... and it is because of age that I am already beginning to feel rusty and creaky... when my back begins to ache and when my knees start to hurt sometimes....

But inside?? There is a kid waiting to be let out. I am that carefree, fun loving kid who just wants to enjoy life, have loads of fun and in future end my life a bang if I can, like fireworks!!!

Being a mom and celebrating my eldest girl's 21st birthday!!

"Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning , Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile , I watch her go with a surge of that well known sadness , And I have to sit down for a while , The feeling that I'm losing her forever , And without really entering her world , I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter , That funny little girl 

Slipping through my fingers all the time , I try to capture every minute , The feeling in it , Slipping through my fingers all the time , Do I really see what's in her mind , Each time I think I'm close to knowing , She keeps on growing , Slipping through my fingers all the time 

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table , Barely awake I let precious time go by,  Then when she's gone, there's that odd melancholy feeling , And a sense of guilt I can't deny , What happened to the wonderful adventures , The places I had planned for us to go , Well, some of that we did, but most we didn't , And why, I just don't know 

Slipping through my fingers all the time , I try to capture every minute , The feeling in it , Slipping through my fingers all the time , Do I really see what's in her mind , Each time I think I'm close to knowing , She keeps on growing , Slipping through my fingers all the time 

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture , And save it from the funny tricks of time 

Slipping through my fingers all the time 

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning, Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile..."

Ranting off: Holier than thou people......

I cannot comprehend how some people can have that holier than thou attitude.. the pretense of like euuww... why do other people do this and do that but eventually they confess at doing it too...So what is the holier than thou attitude...People who are holier-than-thou ​think that they are ​morally ​better than anyone ​else.. in other words...they are moralistic, judgmental or even sanctimonious and most of the time they do think they are more superior then anyone else..

Making it a wedding for everyone to remember....

Your wedding day is of course a celebration of the love between you and your husband-to-be, but that doesn't mean your ceremony and reception can't be a fun party. 

When it comes to planning a wedding, there are a few basic elements you have to have: The ceremony where you and your beloved exchange vows, followed by some form of reception (whether that means a sit-down meal or simply cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres). And while these basics do make up the event, you can transform these essential details to unforgettable elements of your big day as a whole.

73 questions about me.....

It can be fun answering questions as it can tell people what sort of person you are and I can never quite resist answering questions... so  when I saw this on a fellow blogger's blog, I just felt that I should do it too.... so here goes..

evo® -saving ordinary human’s from themselves

Many a times in life, we will happen across a quirky and interesting brand... and well, this is one of those times... 

evo® is an innovative, professional hair and beauty product manufacturer with individuality and integrity; a manufacturer that speaks the truth.

 born from a desire to produce an exclusive salon range (and not sell it as the answer to life, love and other woes), evo® steps outside the normal realm of truth-stretching invention in a ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ crusade of twisted honesty – designed to make people think. and so comes the catch phrase – saving ordinary human’s from themselves ....

Beyond Barriers with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

Spotlight #1: Don’t Accept Limits

For American cyclist and all-female cycling team owner Kelli Samuelson, carving new niches is a second nature. In overcoming all the curveballs, life has thrown her, Kelli ventured into unchartered territory for female riders and set the stage for other barrier-breaking females.

A hip injury might have given her some serious setbacks and put her dreams on hold, but this aspiring professional with dreams of competing at the top level of the sport, still found her place for women in the traditionally male-dominated cycling world.

“To me, breaking barriers means being who you are and not accepting the limits imposed on you by daring to defy anything that stands in the way of what you want to achieve! I refuse to be defined by a single label but rather choose the freedom of following whatever inspires my passion,” said Kelli Samuelson.
