Digi Prepaid introduces new Add-On, the Unlimited Daily Pass

When I got my very first handphone, I have switched a few telco companies, and finally, settled on Digi. I've been with Digi Postpaid for more than ten years now, and now I wish that I'm a prepaid user.


But in all fairness though, because if you're a Digi Prepaid user, Digi has introduced Unlimited Passes for Prepaid users to enjoy unlimited talking, surfing and streaming from as low as RM1/day. Say WHAT???? Yes, you heard me right. Upon activation, these RM1 passes are valid for 24 hours. There are other Add-Ons as well for RM3/day and RM8/day, but the RM1/day passes are what drew me in immediately.

Review: Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2016

For those of you who know me, you would know that I am really passionate about books. Not the e-book kind where you look at a screen, but those physical copies where you can touch, see, feel, breathe in and admire. 

In a way, I have my upbringing to thank for my love for books. I always got books as presents, and I would read everywhere. In the car, lying down, under the covers, where you can think of, I've most probably read there before. Thankfully my parents never really discouraged me from books, so this love affair grew and grew and never stopped.


Fast forward to today, needless to say I look forward to the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale every end of the year. Why? Because of the great discounts!!!! I used to pay RM30 plus for a book, but nowadays thanks to Bookxcess, I usually pay RM17.90 or below for new books. The past few years, I don't buy books at retail prices anymore because I know that at the end of the year, I will get those titles for only RM10-RM12 per book.

Unearthing Vietnamese Treasures with Vietjet Airlines

I have always told myself that I need to tick off traveling across South East Asia off my bucket list, and with le bb's recent solo trip to Vietnam and Cambodia, I am more determined to at least go to one SEA country, and I'm thinking of starting with Vietnam.


There are many reasons why Vietnam has been one of the favourite tourist destinations in Asia for so many years. A country filled with breathtaking natural beauty, unique heritage, rich history and mouth-watering cuisine, Vietnam has much to offer any tourist who decides to visit her. If you need any reason to do so, these three cities are more than enough reason for someone wanting to make the trip. If it were up to me, this would be my preference if I were to decide to visit Vietnam.

Event + Review: Lacelle Diamond Daily Contact Lenses

Wearing coloured contacts is something that will take a while of getting used to, but once you have started using it, it's hard to go back to wearing normal corrective contacts. For a person that has been wearing contacts for half her life, believe me when I say I have tried many different colours, from purple, to blue, green, gray, hazel, what colours are available out there, you name it, I've tried it. 

But there is one brand that I have yet to try, and that is Bausch + Lomb's Lacelle Jewel Series. Fast forward time, and now they are introducing yet another innovative product; the Lacelle Diamond Daily, a daily disposable cosmetic contact lens.


Diamonds have always been a girl’s best friend. Multi faceted and full of sparkles, the Lacelle Diamond is set to be your new ‘best friend’ for that unparalleled beauty that it brings to your eyes.

Jalan Jalan Japan brings Preloved Goodness to Malaysia!

Hello ladies! If you have been following my Instagram, you would have seen my haul from Jalan Jalan Japan, a store originating from Japan which sells preloved items.

Event + Review: Acuvue Define, Let Your Natural Beauty Shine Through

Holla ladies, for all you contact lens wearers out there, Acuvue is not a relatively new brand in the market. In fact, my first pair of lenses were Acuvue lenses, and I remember putting them on when I was only 15 years old. Ah.....the trials of wanting to look pretty without my specs even at such a young age :p

 Every woman wants to know the secret to looking her best, and one of the best ways of doing this subtly yet naturally is by giving the eyes definition and shine. Which is why most of us resort to using coloured contacts to make our eyes pop a little more, and to get people to notice us. I personally have been guilty of this :p Through years of research and breakthroughs in technology - 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® Brand is a revolutionary beauty lens that has the ability to bring every woman’s eyes to life by accentuating her best assets in a safe and healthy way.

Review: THEFACESHOP Hand Butter Series

Holla Bellas! In this highly volatile climate, where it's hot one day and rainy the next, this can really play havoc on our skin's moisture level, while it tries to get used to the different temperatures out there. 


It is because of this particular reason that I bring with me a hand cream wherever I go. And thanks to THEFACESHOP, they sent me a parcel filled with Hand Butter goodies! I was so pleasantly surprised because my current stock of hand creams have depleted. Seems they know just what I needed :)

Review: Sweet Ampoules, La Belle range

Holla bellas! It's been a super hectic month for me, but I've managed to carve out some time to blog, so I'm back to tell you what I can about Ampoules. Nowadays with all the serums, essences, lotions, etc out there, what exactly is an ampoule, and why are they good for our skin? According to eonline, ampoules are basically supercharged serums. Basically, they are serums on steroids. They are super packed with high concentrations of active ingredients and can help to boost the quality of your skin in the least time possible.


While products like moisturisers give an overall effect, ampoules work in a more niche market. They are usually produced to cater to a specific need, such as pore minimising, hydrating, collagen boosting, whatever you can think of, there is an ampoule to target it. And yes, let's face it, there are a number of brands out there that tout all sorts of things, but which brand would be the best to go for?

Earn cashback with ShopBack!

Every woman loves shopping, and with the advent of the Internet and technology, online shopping has gone from difficult to downright easy. Easy to browse and transact, and definitely way easier for us to part with our money! For me, online shopping is the bane of my existence. Like, how easy is it for us to just ‘add to cart’ and then ‘proceed to checkout’? If I don’t keep myself in check, I will go broke just buying stuff online!


But fortunately for me, I have discovered ShopBack, the only portal out there that gives you money back the more you shop online! So you not only get to shop, you also earn cashback and get online promotions!

Event: Rohto® Cool Eye Drops for Beautiful Eyes

From health and wellness to skin care and make up, looking good is an effort in which we often spend most of our time to pull the perfect look-of-the-day. But, do we put in the same effort in making ourselves feel good at the same time? 


In this digitally-inclined era, people spend long hours in front of computers, laptops, TVs and mobile devices which eventually lead to strained and dry-eyes. Not only the growing reliance on digital devices strains our eyes, eye irritation also stems from environmental irritants like smoke, dust, haze and air condition which further contribute to more conditions ranging from simple to complex.

Event: Maybelline "Make IT Happen" Meet and Greet with Tuti

How many of you guys out there are ardent followers of the latest glamorous reality show to hit our Malaysian shores, Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 4? Personally I must say that these shows are not something that I follow religiously, but when you have a talented Malaysian such as Noraini Mohd Noor, or better known as Tuti, one can't help but follow the show if only for the fact to root her on.


 With the launch of Maybelline's new tagline "Make IT Happen"and thanks to Maybelline and lion and lion, I got the opportunity to meet the sweet lady in person. She came all the way from the show to meet us and share with us how she embodies the spirit of Make it Happen in the pursuit of her life dreams.

Event: Physicians Formula is now in Malaysia!

Physicians Formula is now in Malaysia!!!!

I have been waiting for quite a while now for Physicians Formula to come back to Malaysia and thanks to the people at EIG, it is back! Physicians Formula left a few years ago, presumably to low response maybe? While I'm not too sure of the reason, I'm glad that it has more reason to be back.

This brand offers quite a large range of high quality, innovative, glamorous yet healthy products that are catered to the mass market category, and is available exclusively at selected watsons outlets.

Review: Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer

Ever tried so many different types of concealers and it never works the right way for your undereye circles and dark spots? How about those liquid concealers that are just too watery that it doesn't make any difference or just too thick that it looks absolutely cakey on your skin? I've been there, done that.

But having said that, I have found a few concealer sticks that have done wonders for me, and one of them is the Klairs Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer for face and under eye.


This product is available in www.hermo.my, and they claim that it is the only concealer you will ever want. It is made with all natural ingredients, and has a safe and soothing formula for excellent coverage, the Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer is made for even the most sensitive skin for the all-around, hydrating coverage you’ve been looking for.

Review: BTL Vanquish Me at Premier Clinic

Hey guys! how many among you guys have always struggled with weight loss and stubborn fats in different parts of your body? For me it's belly fat. Belly fat for me has always been the bane of my existence. I'm ok with other parts of my body, but I am usually more sensitive towards my belly area and it doesn't look like I will be losing it anytime soon, even though I'm going for more regular gym sessions and working out at home.


It was a valid concern so when I was introduced to Premier Clinic and their BTL Vanquish Me device, I thought, why not give this a try, on top of my current exercise regime. The BTL Vanquish Me is a non-invasive technology to reduce stubborn fat pockets around the midsection. Like its predecessor the BTL Vanquish, this BTL Vanquish Me device creates a high energy field that precisely targets the thermal effects into the fat layer while protecting surrounding skin tissue. Therefore, it destroys unwanted fat cells over the course of four to six treatment sessions.

Event: Fox Sports Unites Fans in REDS Showdown

Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara was awash with a wave of red as hundreds of fans came together to witness eternal rivals Liverpool F.C. and Manchester United F.C. clash it out in High Definition (HD) at the Barclays Premier League (BPL) during the LIVE Match Viewing Party hosted by FOX International Channels (FIC).


Now, I'm not a fan of either FC (don't kill me!!) but I love to watch football nonetheless. So I decided to make the journey down to Giza although I now live on the other side of the world. It was a great scene to take in as fans turned up proudly sporting their team colours (which were both red, btw), and crests to cheer their respective teams and jeer their rivals in good jest in the Reds Showdown live on FOX Sports.

Event: Melvita x Women's Health Organic Beauty Picnic Workshop

About a month plus ago, I was invited to attend the Melvita x Women's Health Organic Beauty Picnic Workshop. Melvita for me was not a new brand, as I have heard of it before, and read about it. But it was a product that I was not very familiar with, since I have never tried it before. So I decided, why not? There's always something new to learn about a brand, no matter how old it is.


The name Melvita was derived from Honey, and Life. So in loose terms, it means honey is life. A world without bees would be a world without flowers, without fruits, without beauty. It is also, a brand that is Ecocert and Cosmebio organic certified.
