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.

Towards the end of June, Tiger Beer began to encourage its fans to uncage their creativity and join hands in taking a stand against illegal tiger trade via the global 3890Tigers campaign in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

The brewer had removed the iconic tiger on the logo across all its packaging for this campaign and posed a rhetorical question, ‘Can you imagine a world without tigers?’ Fans instantaneously jumped at the opportunity to show their support to raise awareness on the consequences of the illegal tiger trade.

Review: Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Hey girls!

I want to introduce to you Althea Korea's first ever very own product range, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder.

I know many of you are confused as to what this product is, and why would Althea have a branded product considering they are an e-commerce site? Well, with all companies, many of them wants to evolve and be more than what they currently are, which is why we see Althea entering a different phase, and coming up with a product that is synonymous with their DNA of providing affordable beauty for all.

Event: Taiwan Wows Malaysians at Four-Day Event

Taiwan has always been on my bucket list, but most times, the timing was either not right to go, or the funds restricted me from fulfilling that dream. I could only imagine how Taiwan’s famous ‘Little Traffic Light Man’ looked like, the ubiquitous animated traffic signal that tells pedestrians around the country when it is safe to cross the road. I would love to frame a beautiful Instagram worthy picture that visitors make a beeline for when in Taiwan.

Thanks to the Commerce Development Research Institute (CDRI) of Taiwan, the WOW! Taiwan Selects event which took place at Suria KLCC recently made me feel as if I am right in the heart beat of Taiwan.

Stand Strong for Tigers with Tiger Beer with #3890Tigers

If you're an avid Tiger Beer fan and drink lots and lots and lots of Tiger Beer in your lifetime, you might notice something different about the design on bottles and cans of Tiger Beer this month – the iconic tiger in the logo has gone missing. It comes as the 3890Tigers campaign launches in Malaysia, asking consumers to uncage their creativity and join Tiger Beer in taking a stand against the illegal tiger trade.

The campaign references the fact that, globally, there are estimated to be 3890 tigers left in the wild today – following 96% of the population being wiped out in the past 100 years. The Malayan Tiger is in an even more critical condition, with only as few as 250 left in the wild.

Review: Butterfly Project 4th Anniversary Product Unboxing

*Warning* Picture filled post ahead!!!

About a month ago, I was privileged to be part of a selected few chosen to celebrate TBP's fourth anniversary. In true TBP style, each of us were given a beauty bag full of products to bring home to try, and it has been fun trying out each and every single one of them.

So many products! Only one face! How to try them all??? Which was why I took a while to go through each one, so here's what I think.

Review: Veet Sensitive Touch

Hair removal is something girls are introduced to at an early age, particularly when it involves eyebrows, underarms, and the bikini line. Nobody wants a whole lot of hair in these areas as they're just going to look unkempt, messy, and just plain improper. But there is so much work to remove hair in these unwanted areas as it is time consuming and are sometimes just not done right.

When trimming your eyebrows, you either use tweezers or a razor. But usage of tweezers are painful if you don't do it right, and razors gives you the risk of you accidentally cutting  yourself, which is something nobody wants.

Suffice to say, everybody wants to look groomed, but not everyone wants the hassle.

Thank goodness Veet has come up with the new Veet Sensitive Touch, an electric trimmer that is touted to be quick and gentle with no fear of cuts.

Review: Neutrogena Deep Clean Series

Holla ladies!

Our skin is one of the most important parts of our body, and it is the largest organ that we have, so it is only normal that we take care of it the best we can.

For me, the best cleansers are the one that thoroughly cleanses without drying or irritating the skin, and I think I might just have found it with Neutrogena.

Thanks to the Neutrogena team, I was given the opportunity to review some of their best selling products, and the best part was that these products were catered to my skin type. As we wash our face daily, the products we use must be suitable for our skin, which is why products that are specially cherry picked for you almost always yields the best results.

So what products did I try out?

Beauty can feel like a tricky stunt when it comes to hair removal and trimming, as many sensitive body parts demand skill and care. Bikini lines, eyebrows and underarms are delicate areas that requires gentle yet precise trimming, which existing tools like razors and tweezers cannot fully provide. Understanding women’s need for an easier solution, world’s No. 1 depilatory brand Veet has recently rolled out a new beauty gadget that makes hair trimming a breeze.

Known as Veet Sensitive Touch, this new gadget is a game-changing device that comes with various detachable heads to facilitate accurate and gentle hair trimming at sensitive body parts, such as the eyebrows, underarms and bikini lines. The cutting blades are specially designed to never touch your skin during usage, hence no risk of cuts.

Review: Althea Korea's Limited Edition Mermaid Box

*Warning: Picture filled post ahead*

Like all beauty loving ladies, I was super excited when Althea Korea set its foot on Malaysian shores. Thanks to Tammy, I was one of the lucky few who were selected to collaborate with Althea on a number of campaigns. Needless to say, I am an avid supporter of Althea, and it is always the first site I go to for my K-beauty fix.

The Althea Box campaign was launched in October last year and features all full sized products at a fraction of the cost. What I like about these boxes were that you could see before you buy if you wanted any of the products in there. No subscription needed. If you like it, you buy it. And that saves me (and I daresay a lot of other people) the hassle.

Event: Tiger STREATS hits KL, Uncage Street Food

When we talk about street food, we think of stalls lining up the walkway, with tables and chairs arranged in some order along the street that has been blocked off for the night, akin to pasar malam arrangements. When I got the invite to attend Tiger Streats, I was curious to find out how they would dress up a warehouse space to reflect that.

I then entered the warehouse, and loved the arrangement immediately. There were tables to cater to over 700 people, and all these food lovers sat shoulder to shoulder around the street food table, sharing ice-cold Tiger beers at Tiger STREATS.
