Movie Review: No Escape (2015)

Thanks to MM2, I got to catch No Escape a few days before it opens in Malaysia on 3rd September. The screening was at GSC Paradigm Mall, which was awesome for me cos it wasn't too far :D That, and there were other shops at Paradigm that I wanted to visit :p

So did I like the movie? read on to find out what I think about it! I have tried not to mention any spoilers, so no worries that you might accidentally read something that you didn't want to know.

Synopsis: American businessman Jack Dwyer (Owen Wilson), wife Annie and their two young daughters arrive in Southeast Asia to begin a new life. As his company plans to improve the region's water quality, the family quickly learns that they're right in the middle of a political uprising. Armed rebels attack the hotel where they're staying, ordered to kill any foreigners that they encounter. Amid utter chaos, Jack must find a way to save himself and his loved ones from the violence erupting all around them.

Event: Keep Calm and Zumba with Celebrity Fitness

Being in Malaysia, the hot climate can sometimes prove unbearable, and even the most seasoned Malaysians will complain of the heat. But even then, Celebrity Fitness Malaysia proves that the hot Malaysian heat is no excuse to keep you from exercising! In line with their philosophy to make fitness fun, Celebrity Fitness Malaysia recently held a pool party to introduce aqua based workouts as an enjoyable and beneficial twist to the daily workout routine.

Being an ex national swimmer myself, I know all too well that Aqua-based workouts engage all the core muscles, arms and legs. The best part about it? the cool water cools your body down and its buoyancy allows you to reach a greater range of motion and lowers the risk of injury, making water workouts suitable for everyone.

5 easy ways to get beautiful skin

Hey guys :)

Some of you have asked me personally how to achieve great skin that people will be envious about, skin with great complexion, and flawless even without makeup.

Well, I'm here today to let you know what I think will be the top 5 ways to get beautiful skin!

1. Get enough sleep

If you don’t want to wake up looking like a giant panda in the morning who has just cried buckets the night before, then please do take my advice.

At night, your skin repairs itself, and prepares for the next day. And the optimal time for your skin to do so? Between 10pm to 2am. So get to bed early, and rise the next day feeling like a new person! And of course, I do mean get uninterrupted sleep, where you sleep all the way til you wake up the next day (maybe at 6, or 7, or whenever you need to get up to go to work). I do NOT mean go to sleep from 10pm to 2am, wake up to do whatever you want to do, and then trudge back to bed again before waking up for work, because, my dear, it doesn’t work that way. You will only be putting more stress on your body, and trust me, you will definitely feel more lethargic when you wake up the second time around and feel like

Your body needs all the rest it can get, so help it along as you can, and I assure you, your skin will feel like a million dollars every day!

Review: Mary Kay Skinvigorate

Have you guys ever thought of scrubbing your face everytime you wash your face but don't really dare to because you're afraid of harming your skin from the rough abrasions? I was in the same situation as well, but lucky for me, I found Mary Kay's Skinvigorate.

There are many cleansing brushes out there, the most famous one being the Clarisonic which costs more than RM500....yes, it's quite expensive. There are other mid range cleansing brushes also, which costs between RM250-RM350. But what I will be reviewing today will be the Mary Kay Skinvigorate, which only costs RM190.

Review: Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Solow, Bumble, Shimmy

Hello peeps!

It's been a while since I reviewed a matte lipstick (you can read the Elianto one here), so here I am!

As you know, Colourpop has just only recently came out with a new product, and that is their Ultra Matte Lip. As the name suggests, it's a liquid lipstick that dries matte, and it touts to be able to glide onto the lips smoothly thanks to its lightweight formula and leaves SUPER intense pigment-rich colour with a bold, ultra matte look. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof!

This range comes in 33 shades, and retails for USD 6 (about RM24) per piece. When Makeup Niche first shared about it, I got very excited because the colours were all very pretty! They come in all hues, from nudes to pinks, to fuchsias, to purples, even greens! Yup, the range of colours are extensive!
