Review: Mivva August Box, Flower Power!

Holla dearies! It's nearing the end of Merdeka and our country has just celebrated it's 56th birthday! Did any of you went out to paint the town red? I did, and it was awesome!

Nearing the end of a month, we will be welcoming a new month tomorrow, and we all know what a new month signifies. New beauty boxes! But before that, let me show you what I got for Mivva's August box :)

The theme of the month was Flower Power where everything curated in the box is related!!! Looking at the contents of the box, I wouldn't say EVERYTHING is flower related, but at least three of the products were :)

Movie Review: Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

Special thanks to Nuffnang, I got to catch the premiere screening of Kick-Ass 2, the sequel to the big hit, Kick-Ass (duh) :p

Synopsis: Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: ‘Kick-Ass 2.’ After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (ChloĆ« Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.

Why I want to go to The Lost World of Tambun with The Butterfly Project Malaysia

I've always thought that theme parks in Malaysia were only the ones in Genting, and Sunway Lagoon. Then two years ago over the course of my work, I found out there's a Bukit Gambang theme park in Kuantan, and now, I found out that there's a Lost World in Perak! Seems like Malaysia is also abundant in theme parks in every corner of the peninsular, and not just in KL and Pahang.

Credit: Dan Liew

The Lost World series by Sunway City Ipoh has three locations, which is the Lost World Hotel, Lost World of Tambun, and Lost World Hot Springs and Spa :) The best thing about this is they are ALL within walking distance so you can just stay in the hotel, play at the theme park, and get pampered at the spa. Feeling excited yet? Anticipating a trip there?!? So am I!

Thanks to the Butterfly project, they have a review project coming up for September and it is a two-day one-night (2D1N) trip to The Lost Worlds!!! I am ready to pack my bags and jump on the ETS right now to head there but unfortunately I will have to wait until Sept 22nd (if I do get selected >.<) It promises to be a trip filled with fun in the sun, pampering at night, and gossip sessions until the cows come home! :D

Movie Review: Elysium (2013)

It's been a week of movies and this is my third movie this week! *phew*

Special thanks to Nuffnang, I got to catch the premiere screening of Matt Damon's latest movie, Elysium :)

Synopsis: In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Delacourt, a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium.That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Movie Review: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013)

Thanks to Nuffnang, I got to catch the Premiere Screening of The Mortal Instruments two days ago. It wasn't a movie I was anticipating, and I went in having little to  no expectation of the entire thing.

 Synopsis: Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.

Review: Jelly Pong Pong Skin Mineral Foundation SPF 15

Hey dearies :)

How was your weekend? Hope it was good enough to chase away your Monday blues and make it brighter :) If not, here's one good news for you. It's only four more days to the next weekend! :D and this coming weekend promises to be exciting cos there are so many things lined up for Saturday :)

But before that, we still need to get through three more days before we say hi to Saturday, and for some of you guys, that means three more days of work. So, we still have to paint our face and head in to work while dreaming of the weekend. For me, when I paint my face, there is something I always use, and that is Jelly Pong Pong's Skin Mineral Foundation with SPF 15 :)

Hey ladies,

If you're a beauty box junkie, you would know that the past month, Bag of Love has continually teased and excited their subscribers, me included :p There was so much hype about their special edition bags well as their July bag.

Well, July's bag didn't disappoint, if anything I would say that there was a big variety with some of Asia's cult brands, like Etude House, The Face Shop, L'Oreal, etc. As I subscribed to their quarterly subscription, I got a few extras, which were the Avocado Body Lotion Sachets and the Murad Sunscreen

Recipe: Kimchi Jigae

Hola dearies :)

While I love Korean food and Kimchi, I've never thought of cooking Kimchi Jigae at home, mainly cos I don't really trust the kimchi they sell in supermarkets. But thanks to a close friend, Evelyn, she gave us a container of home made kimchi (yes, she made it herself! I'm gonna try to get her to pass me the recipe :p)! So I was at Paradigm Mall this afternoon with le bb cos I wanted to look at the Sephora brushes (I wanted to get the crease eyeshadow brush, but they're freaking exp), and then we just decided on the spot to cook some Kimchi Jigae for dinner tonight since we had some kimchi in the fridge.

So we googled the recipe and set off to Tesco to get the ingredients. The recipe we found is to feed approx 4-5 pax, so we cut it down to size :p Here is my version, and hope you guys like it!

Movie Review: The Conjuring (2013)

Boom! Another movie review is up, and this time I'm reviewing non other than the horror flick, The Conjuring!

Caught this the other day with le bb, and I'm not exactly a fan of horror films, so most of the time I was behind the shawl, but I could still see the silhouette of what was happening :p So did I like it? Read on to find out!

As the world toasts to what some may say is the world’s boldest Man in history, Arthur Guinness, Arthur’s Day 2013 will pay homage to those like Arthur, who have made great things happen just because they chose to make the ‘bolder’ choice!

Review: Bali Hai Seafood Ramadhan Buffet @ Kota Damansara

Hey dearies :)

A few weekends ago, I was invited to a food review at Bali Hai Seafood, for their Ramadhan Fare. If you're not sure where Bali Hai is, it is actually located at the exact same spot of the old Asia  Cafe in Kota Damansara, just next to Tune Hotel.

There are plenty of parking lots in this restaurant but RM1 will be charged after 6.30pm. daily. The Bali Hai Ramadan Seafood Buffet starts at 6.30pm until 9.00pm everyday  until the 9th of August 2013. As there is an assortment of seafood on the menu, it is a rotating menu and each day the cooking styles will differ so it's better to give them a call to find out more about the menu rotation.
