Nutrition for my skin – Oskia London by Caliata Beauty

Our skin which is the largest organ in our body is just like any part of our body. It needs TLC which means it needs nutrients, vitamins, and supplements to restore and renew cells. Oskia London which is a bio-active nutritional skincare is now in Malaysia! Caliata is a beauty website that sources nature-inspired, effective skincare from Europe and USA cult brands and brings it here to Malaysia!! Yay! That's how I found out about Oskia London and how they manage to restore glowing skin through bio-active nutrients. I am constantly afraid to put European products on my skin because I feel it doesn't suit Asian skin, but it wasn't the case with brands from Caliata. Since trying Oskia London out starting from it's...

Makoto Japanese Restaurant @ Desa Sri Hartamas – Live Unagi Eel & Japanese Unagi chef

When I do a food review here, you know it MUST be good! Last week, I was completely amazed by this quaint little Unagi specialty restaurant at Desa Sri Hartamas. Not only was the ambience inviting, and warm, but they were authentic. The main thing I love about Makoto is that it has a skilled unagi chef who is flown down to prepare and cook unagi for Malaysians here. Plus, they are the first restaurant in Malaysia to fly the live eels down twice a week from Tokyo! Before I begin showing you the courses I eat, please note that they have a seasonal menu so the food I ate might not be there anymore in 2 months. Time to brace yourself...

Yearning for the Thomas Sabo Autumn/Winter 2017 collection

Thomas Sabo recently launched their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection, and there were so many pieces I liked. This round, the jewellery featured two central themes of contemporary lifestyle which was yearning for the faraway and love of the familiar. Such romanticism is hard to come by, and that's why I am in love with their jewellery. My favourite together collection deserves to be the first picture. The latest collection features a sparkling heart and a ring engraved with ‘Together’ merge into an unified pendant Isn't it pretty? My other favourite would be the Glam & soul collection. The graphic circular designs such as the circular pendants is everlasting and allows me to wear it anywhere *winkz* I love what the Tree Of love collection stands for...

Natural Products for your hair and scalp – Viege at Aki Hair Studio

Do you experience oily scalp as you grow older or is it due to the Malaysian heat? When I was staying in the hospital for 18 days during my surgeries, I started having oily hair and scalp. Since then, I've been trying to solve it and  found a solution recently. To my delight, it was made of all types of vegetables and natural. Contrary to what we believe, oily scalp actually produces dandruff for us which is what I experienced. I would be really embarrassed because at that point of time, not only was I super thin due to the colostomy bag, but my hair was flaking!! You guys would know that I head to Aki Hair studio when it comes...

Property hunting – The Riyang Happy Garden

Ben and I have been living together for a year plus now and don’t get me wrong, we LOVE our condominium from its amenities to its location. However, when you think of starting a family, a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit isn’t such a good size. So, yes we are house hunting.  I prefer a large condo while Ben prefers a landed house, so how do we choose? Well, we’ve decided to be open to both and see how it goes. Recently, we came across a condo that could suit us. It's located in the heart of the City, and connected to major highways, which is a plus! If you are looking towards a size of 4B3b or 5B4b, this apartment...

Do your bit for charity – The Therapy First Serum by The Face Shop

The Face Shop has just relaunched their Therapy First Serum which is pretty much a miraculous product! Not only have they relaunched it, but with a good cause attached to it. You can be a beauty and support on a cause on top of that too *wink* . I'm all onboard this because the aim for the cause is to raise cancer awareness as any purchase of the bottle of The Therapy First Serum (RM148.29), RM15 will be donated to a cancer organization AND you get another The Therapy First Serum! What this means is that it's Buy ONE, get the 2nd one FREE, you will get a pouch(pic below), and part of the proceeds(RM15) goes to support a cancer...

Quality gel nails at Yu Academie Salon

When it comes to doing my nails, I've never wanted gel nails after ONE bad experience with it which caused my nails to be brittle. However, after meeting Yuki-san from Yu Aacademie salon, my perceptio on gel nails has changed. I am more than happy to do gel nails on both my hands and feet because of the Japanese technology to remove and apply it so it doesn't hurt your nails. Once you walk into their premises, you will feel like you are definitely in  Japanese nail salon because everything is so pretty! We were greeted with pretty cupcakes and mochis flown in from Japan While you are doing your nails there, you can also enjoy the beverages available such as green tea...

Things to do at Pangkor Laut Resort – From a world class spa to a sunset cruise

In my previous post, I talked about the food, accomodation, and service at Pangkor Laut resort, but what about the things to do there such as the world class spa! If you are one for working out, or just enjoying nature, I would definitely suggest waking up a little earlier to go for a guided hike which was really eye-opening especially for a city girl like me Jungle Walk This activity is led by Encik Asri who has so much passion for the wilf life and environment! He was telling us about the bats that inhabit the island and how they only stuck to one tree. The knowledge he knows and how much he can impart to us was amazing! After that, we...

Honeymoon : Things to do at Niseko Hokkaido

I always write a post about my travels after coming back, and what's not too write about my latest one which was my honeymoon? It was perfect to say the least. Many of you are probably wondering why choose to go Niseko which is a small town for your honeymoon? For me, it's because I wanted to go skiing, and I heard that the snow there is perfect for that! Besides it being a small town, with not much to do, just doing these few things can occupy your time. Enjoy the snow and take a walk       For us, that was one of the most important things coming from Malaysia. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around our resort area, or just in the...
