Celebrate 11.11 Singles’ Day with discounts and savings

11.11 is a date that holds many different meaning for everyone. For me, 11.11 holds a significant date as that is the date that le bb and I got together, many many many moons ago. For others, it’s known as Singles’ Day, after all, who needs a significant other in their life? However, more recently, the date 11.11 has come to bring a more interesting meaning to all shopaholics. It’s the date retail outlets offer huge discounts to their customers! All hail 1111 sales!

Of late, more and more outlets are jumping on the bandwagon and doing their shopping on this date as it is popularly known as the biggest sale event of the year.

Another somewhat big sale event is also Black Friday, which incidentally falls on 24 November this year. If you don’t know, Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since 1952, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S., and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales. (source: Wikipedia) It only recently just gained popularity in Malaysia and lots of retail outlets also offer massive Black Friday deals in honour of this sale.

Review: Hwa Ga Korean BBQ at Taman Desa

Speak Korean cuisine, and you would see the people in your group of friends immediately contributing their favourite Korean dish, and the places they go to get their Korean fix. I am no different. I absolutely love Korean cuisine, my favourite being the Kimchi Jigae (spicy Kimchi soup), so much so that I blogged about my Kimchi jigae recipe, which you can read here: *click*

It is no wonder that most Malaysians love Korean cuisine, in fact, the spicier, the better! But of course, having said that, Kimchi Jigae is not the only all-time popular dish. There are many others, the more notable one being Korean Barbeque meats, which range from pork, to beef, chicken, even lamb.

Nivea Protect & Care Deodorant Run and Review

Underarm skin is delicate, and plucking hairs out by the root can damage the hair follicles, leading to ingrown hairs and enlarged pores. The alternative isn’t any better - while shaving, the pressure of the blade on uneven underarm skin can lead to small cuts. In addition, debris removed during shaving may contain up to 36% of skin!

As hair removal damages your skin and often causes irritation, NIVEA has developed Protect & Care, a deodorant that is enriched with the essence of NIVEA crème, capturing the brand’s heritage of quality beauty creams with its distinctive care ingredients and delicate scent. NIVEA Protect & Care deodorant offers long-lasting protection of up to 48 hours and at the same time, the innovative and skin-friendly formula gently cares for your skin, keeping you fresh all day giving you softer and smoother underarms.

Luminous Ray, a Lewre brand 20 years in the making

Dato' Lew is no stranger to the local shoemaking industry, having made a name for himself even since before he launched his Lewre (pronounced "lew-ray") brand in 1997.

The Lewre history was an interesting one as Dato' Lew himself started venturing into the shoemaking business, a business he himself didn't know he had a penchant for until he started working in a shoe factory.
