Review: Catrice in Malaysia

Holla girls! So here's another review of a new drugstore brand I found last month thanks to Fiona :) What I love about this brand is that it's affordable enough that it doesn't hurt your wallet/ purse, and there are so many varieties of products to choose from. 

Catrice is a German brand (I think, since the website is a GmBH) that prides itself on following the trends of the latest fashionista and make up artist and formulating products that would cater to the mass market at a price that is friendly to your wallet. Their products are always updated, so there will never be running out of nothing new to try from Catrice!

Giveaway: Oral-B Ultra Thin Toothbrush

Holla guys! If personal hygiene is an important thing to you, then read on because I have just the thing in store for you!

Most Malaysians are concerned with the health of their gums yet do not know when they have a problem. With this in mind, Oral-B is launching the new Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush and an awareness campaign to educate Malaysians that gum health issues can be easily addressed by choosing the right toothbrush.

The new Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush has three features that makes it so powerful:

1. It has 100% finely tapered bristles that are clinically proven to improve gum health in 14 days!! 
2. It has a small 25mm head 
3. It has strong core bristles to remove plaque for better oral health

Its less than 0.01mm tips are designed for deep clean and are clinically proven to effectively clean along the gum line to reach up to 2x deeper between teeth versus regular, flat trim bristles (based on laboratory testing). The new Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush is clinically proven to improve gum health - keeping your teeth clean while being gentle on your gums, thus giving you the confidence to show off that healthy smile anytime!

Do you know that the colour of your gums actually determines the health of your gums? If gums are very light and pinkish in colour, they are healthy. If they are dark and reddish, you may have unhealthy gums. If gums are unhealthy, they will most likely be swollen or be susceptible to bleeding when you brush your teeth. This is due to inflammation caused by the immune system to protect itself from bacteria. Poor oral hygiene or not using the right toothbrush can cause a build-up of bacteria in between teeth and on the gum line thereby, irritating gums and causing gum disease.

The Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush has 3 colour indicators so you know that each will have a specific function to target a better clean for your teeth;

  • Power Tip BLUE bristles that effectively cleans those hard-to-reach areas keeping gums healthy in the molar area,
  • Plaque Disruption GREEN Bristles - strong core bristles that remove plaque for better oral health, and
  • Stimulator WHITE bristles that stimulate gums and positioned to maximise gum reach.

If you want to know more about the new Oral-B Ultra Thin toothbrush, the Oral-B Ultra Thin campaign booth will be up at LG2, High Street, 1 Utama Shopping Complex from25 to the 29th March 2015. Your readers are all invited to check out the new toothbrush.

Event: MIMMA 3 is back, and it's better than before!

MMA has always been a sport dear to my heart, mostly because I grew from not knowing the sport at all to something that I can relate to, and having a real sense of respect for the fighters who go into the ring and emerge heros, regardless of whether they win or not.

So you can bet yourself that I have always been a follower of Tune Talk's endeavours to bring MMA to the local scene by encouraging amateur fighters to have a hand at trying out their talents and strengths. It has been two years past, and this year marks the third, the Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts Season 3 #MIMMA3 as they scour the country yet again to unearth more local talents at the grass roots level.

Event: 7th Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

I don't normally wake up super early for an event, but when I do, it's because it's something I really want to do. One fine example of that, is the annual Hot Air Balloon Fiesta happening in Putrajaya. In its 7th year this 2015, it promises to be even more exciting, and has drawn quite a huge crowd.

le bb and I arrived at the site at about 7am, when the sky was still dark and there were still ample parking spaces available. Already, there is a crowd, and I was quite excited myself to see the many different hot air balloons that will be showcased. There are about 20 balloons, from all around the world. There are balloons from Thailand, USA, and even Spain!

Event: ONE: Malaysia wins big at latest ONE Championship MMA Fight

Asia’s largest mixed martial arts organization with a 90% market share, ONE Championship™ (ONE), kicked off 2015 with a spectacular show at the Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fans were treated to another night of world-class mixed martial arts action with ONE: AGE OF CHAMPIONS. In the main event, Adriano Moraes defeated a tenacious Riku Shibuya by Unanimous Decision to retain the ONE Flyweight World Championship belt. 

On top of that, Malaysian fans were in for an awesome treat as ALL FIVE Malaysians competing took home the win!

ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes and challenger Riku Shibuya entertained the crowd with a showcase of striking and grappling exchanges in the main event. In the first round, Shibuya came out looking to take the fight to Moraes as the Brazilian worked to get Shibuya to the ground. On the mat, Moraes controlled the action by advancing position multiple times to Shibuya’s back although Shibuya exhibited exceptional defense. In the second, Shibuya did a better job of keeping the fight on the feet as he continued to stalk Moraes across the cage. Rounds three to five saw much of the same action with Shibuya continuing to press as Moraes dominated the ground game. In the end, Moraes’ various takedowns and submission attempts earned him a hard-fought decision.

Review + Giveaway: BelleWave Skincare Range

Raise your hands if you are NOT using a Swiss brand as part of your skincare regime! More often than not, I would think that you would either be using Korean or Japanese skincare brands. And no wonder, because Switzerland is always more famous for its watches than skincare. But, I’m here to tell you that Switzerland does indeed have skincare brands, and some reputable ones as well such as Crabtree and Evelyn, La Prairie, and Arbonne, amongst others.

One of them is BelleWave. Their products are botanical based with NO animal testing done, and BelleWave has been in Malaysia for 15 years. So if they have been around for so long, why haven’t we heard from them? Well, they are salon exclusive products, so more often than not, you wouldn’t know what brands your salon uses as they are not usually forthcoming about their products.

BelleWave has two main product ranges, which is WhiteWave, and ClearWave.

Review: NIVEA Extra Whitening Skin Therapy Serum SPF 33 PA +++

Skin tone and condition have always been a big concern for women. It is an endless battle for every woman to look good and beautiful according to societal stereotypes. Hence it is a common desire for Asian women to have beautiful, fair and radiant skin.

And to further add to the stereotype, I am one of those people. Being an athlete since young (like, really young, since 4 years old :p), I have always been under the sun, and I have skin so tanned, that if you didn't know me, you would have thought that I was a Bumiputera and not pure Chinese. And I have been trying to get a healthier and fairer skin tone, and get rid of the dark spots. So I am always on the lookout to find the right whitening product that can suit my skin, but not only that, I need to consider whether the product I chose will be able to also protect me from harmful UVA and UVB Rays. Because yes, if you get the wrong product, your skin will become dull and damaged.

GRADUAN ASPIRE is back in East Malaysia, and it's bigger and better than before!

What would you get when you bring some of Malaysia's leading corporations and top talents together with exhilarating activities? A stimulating day of networking and talent matching, of course! That is exactly what is in store this March at the GRADUAN ASPIRE BORNEO CAREER FAIR, to be held in Kuching, Sarawak for the second year running.

This time it will be held at Pullman Hotel Kuching, on 14th March 2015, from 10am to 5pm

Coming from Kuching myself, I have always felt that there was not much of an opportunity for me career-wise if I were to stay in Kuching. Simply because there have not been many corporations notable or big enough that have branched out part of their operations to East Malaysia so there was no feasible opportunity for those who were more ambitious. But now thanks to GRADUAN® ASPIRE, East Malaysians have a real chance to get discovered, and to venture out to a more challenging environment.
