My september was amazing. As most of you know, it's my birthday month, September 16th. Being a Virgo isn't easy, it's like one of the top most hated horoscopes cuz Virgo are sort of pain in the ass? I'm just glad my friends still loves me, and tbh, I would love to be a virgo in my next life, on September 16th to be exact cuz I think I'm one lucky b*tch.

This year, my nanny Natalie decided to plan my birthday dinner, crazy as it seems, I don't know what she can't pull off anymore. We celebrated my birthday at one of my favourite japanese place, Nobu, with amazing venue, beautiful view and great food. Accompanied by my favourite people, whose play huge part of my life, Nanny, Daphne, Ashley, Leng Leng, Nana, Isabelle, Brian, Valerie. ( I've forgiven those who couldn't make it lollllll. love you guys, don't worry you guys are important too - Vivi, Liza ). 

It's amazing how eventho some of us don't often meet each other but when we meet, there's still never ending conversations, about how we much we grew up and how we used to be. It's just great to have people like them who share the same values of life. No matter what it is, or how bad a situation can be, we are always backing each other up, always reminding each other what's important. I just hope we can be like this in the next ten years. * heart and finger crossed *

Big shout out to Nobu, Hennessy, IKKI, LooneyBloons, ByThianFlorist,Urban Decay, NARS, Kiehl's, Kensapothecary, Diptyque, Marvis, ShaunTeoCreations for making everything happen! Big hugs and thank you!


Tommy Hilfiger X Gigi Hadid

Monday, September 26, 2016

Did a fun shoot with my baby sister Ashley last week, playing twinsies in Tommy Hilfiger X Gigi Hadid collection. It's funny how I just realise that we don't really have much photos together, the last photoshoot we did together was prolly the one we did for H&M, which was like almost a year ago :/ It's just weird sometimes, eventho we always take photos for each other, but not much for both of us together, maybe we should do it more often in the future, when we are still young lollll.

Anyway, both of us are huge fans of the hadids. I'm so glad they launch this collection here in KL. Here's us try'na do the 'fashion sisters' shoot, photographed by our very own Brian See, that makes the shoot extra more fun. 

 Love it? Hate it? Do shoot us some ideas on what theme we should do next!

Handy Travel Tips

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

1. Minimise full size items.
I've used to bring full size items like skincare products or hair products because I was so insecure without them but they take up so much space! ( not to mention they are super heavy too. )
So here's a few ways :
- invest in travel packs, brands like Kiehl's have the best travel packs.
- Save your skincare samples whenever you get one and bring them while you travel.
- make your own travel packs! My favourite way is by using contact lens case to fill my skincare. (I have tons of them cuz I wear contact lens but you can also buy them cuz it's super cheap!)
-  invest in travel kits that offer different sizes of bottles. You can get them in Muji or Daiso. I personally prefer Muji cuz their quality is better? It's slightly more expensive but I think if you're a frequent traveler, it's worth to invest.

2. Learn how to use Google map!
I used to plan all the places that I wanted to go and save it in my Google map. After saving all the places, I'll plan on which area to go so I won't miss anything. To be honest, most of them are food places lolol.

(here's my Tokyo map. Those stars are the places that I’ve saved and it's easier to plan on routes.)
Best thing about it is that it gives info on their opening hours and also routes on how to get there.

3. Portable Wifi services.
Depends on the country and the group of people you're travelling with. Some telco offers good deals for unlimited wifi services abroad but if you're travelling in a group (2 - 5 persons) I guess it's best to pre-book a portable wifi device to share as it is way cheaper. Like the one I always use, Wiyo, offers good deals for wifi in various countries.

4. Plan your outfits.
Sometimes we just over pack our clothes. Especially if we go to cold places, sweaters are so bulky they take up so much spaces. Learn how to wear in layers. I usually pack bottoms that can match with every tops. If I'm travelling for 10 days, I'll bring 10 thin tops, maybe 3-4 bottoms and 2-3 outer wear (if I were to visit cold places). Black & denims are the best to match with. Of course, fold your outfit as neat as possible (or roll them) else it'll take up spaces if you don't keep them tidy.

5. Grab Car to Airport!
I travel so often that sometimes no one is free to fetch me to the airport lol. I mean I wouldn't want to bother someone, so I try to get to the airport by myself. Driving myself there will be out of the questions because the parking can be really expensive; KLIA Express is a good alternative but sometimes I’ve got more than 1 luggage and lugging them by myself would be challenge (they are quite heavy at times). Taxi is the next best solution but then you know how expensive taxi fares are, especially when some of them doesn’t even follow the meter.

BUT WORRY NO MORE! Because Grab Car has started offering a flat rate of RM65 to or from airport! Trust me, it's the cheapest option you can ever get and it’s easy to book them! Not to mention that they are reliable too by making it right to your door step within 15 to 20 minutes (depending on range). I’ve had really good experience with Grab Car; ranging from their comfort level, driving, navigation and also the help that they normally give me with my luggage definitely was a big plus point. Oh and the best part is that ever since they have introduced their pay by credit card option, I no longer need to worry that I carry enough cash that I won’t be able to go home haha.

So there you go with all my pre-travel tips. Let me know if have your own travel hack that you can share hehe.

Are you that type of person who spends all time looking for a new place to go but end up going back to the same old (safe) place cuz you just can't take any disappointments. Me too. Food places to be exact, I'm pretty much the definition of dilemma. BUT THIS DILEMMA HAS TO GO. I miss exploring new places, and I'm glad that theres so many gems in KL yet to be explore.

Like my new recent fav brunch place - @chocha.foodstore located in Chinatown, serves asian-chinese food and amazing teas. Not forget to mention their coffee bar @addicted_now run by my artsy friend Enzo that offers good coffee! This place used to be some old dodgy hotel and I love how they kept the essence there. The selections of cups & plates, lights and furniture goes really well with the theme. They're not only serving good food but also very Instagram/snapchat worthy.

Been there twice in a week, once on a Sunday and once on Merdeka holiday, both pack as expected so maybe you shall try going on a weekday if you don't want a long queue ( no promises tho! ). Chocha food store is not completely done yet, they have bar on level 2 hasn't open yet! More reasons to go back.

Ulam Barley Rice with Salted Egg Squid. My fav I can say cuz I a fan of pesto!

Congrats to @enzo_cy for the amazing coffee bar that makes Chocha even better!

Hi everyone! I’m so glad to share about Bausch + Lomb Lacelle Diamond series which is finally available in Malaysia! I’ve been waiting for it to launch here since I saw Janice Man (Bausch + Lomb Lacelle ambassador of Hong Kong) was promoting on instagram. Fyi, I’ve been an old follower of Janice Man when she was a young blogger/model from Xanga. 

I’m excited about this new product, the Bausch + Lomb Lacelle Diamond series as it comes in 10pcs or 30pcs of daily disposable lens in one box. Which is a really great news for those who wears color lens everyday and also those who only want to wear it occasionally. I mean it’s totally up to your own preference! They’re 14.2mm in diameter and printed with a delicate pattern that mimics the light-reflecting facets of a solitaire-cut diamond. So your eyes will *shine bright like a diamond* Did I mention that they are breathable which will make your eyes feel comfortable all day?

These pretty series comes in three beautiful colours:- 

Aqua Glacier: Alluring aqua sheen of glacier that reflects fun, approaching and refreshing. I usually wear this when I’m out to parties or date night with friends.

Champagne BrownThis colour instantly light up your face with the dazzling gorgeous brown and also provides a natural classy demure look. I would wear this when I attend a more formal events as it’s not over the top but still beautiful.

Pink RoseThis gives your eyes a scintillating sheen that is distinctively feminine. Definitely a perfect portrayal of grace and gentleness. I would suggest this colour for a feminine girly hi-tea outing.
