Do you even care to say thank you?

(George St. Sydney)

Today I was having sushi dinner with Daphne and heard her saying "thank you" after the waiter served our food. I told her :" Daphne, luckily you are one of those people who says 'thank you' cuz nowadays many people forgets about thanking people." (I felt that I'm really an observer, I love observing people, how they act, their gesture, stuff like that... I think it's a virgo thing..) Well, I am also the type of person who says 'Thank you" a lot. It's a simple word but I think it's actually a very powerful word but most people choose to neglect.

I'm not sure why nowadays people forgot to thank someone. I mean yes, we normally thank someone while we need help and they are there for us. I'm not talking about that, I'm talking about basic manners when we meet people who does services. I found out that there's a lot of people who takes other people for granted cuz they think it's their job to do so. Yes, it's a waiter job to serve you food, it's a salesman job to get you the right size, but when you get your food served, get the right sizes of clothes, do you say "thank you"? I have friends who don't cuz they think it's their job so why thank them? Or they just forget about thanking them.

Honestly, saying "thank you"makes a difference. It takes less than one sec to say "thank you" but it seems like there's a lot of people who doesn't care at all. Which makes me sad sometimes (not like really sad but I feel that people can do better). A simple thank you can make people feels great about their job (at least a lil bit), or maybe they doesn't care if you thank them but I believe saying "thank you" makes you a better person, makes you a person who cares about the society, who has a big heart.

If you have a bad day, try saying "thank you" to someone. Trust me, your day eventually get better after that. I'm not sure why or how, but I think it's when you're having a bad day but thanking someone means you appreciate something, and saying "thank you" gives you positive vibes. I'm not sure if this has to do with science or math, I can't really explain but it works for me.

It's a small matter and I have no idea why am I writing this post about thanking someone but I do hope that if you read this and never realize that you forgot about thanking someone will start saying "thank you". Stay positive, stay blessed.

Shopping with Rakuten!


I have always have a love-hate relationship with online shopping. I hate how sometimes I get conned with the pictures online and getting bad quality products. I guess there's many of you who felt the same way and sometimes you just want to give up online shopping but then, you can't cuz for me, I really love how we can get rare stuff online. That is why I highly recommend reading the reviews by google-ing or sometimes they even have a review section in that site. Which is what I am doing now, making a little contribution so the whole online shopping thing don't go down.


Today I am talking about my experience with Rakuten Malaysia (I bet most of you heard about Rakuten, it's ranked #1 online shopping mall in Japan and now we have it in Malaysia!). I really love how their site is well organized and even their mobile site is neat enough, no bugs or crashes! I mean I really think some online shopping malls need to put some effort on their mobile site cuz people nowadays use mobile phones more than laptop.


Some screenshots taken with my phone (feauturing Toki Choi! Hidden gem in Rakuten Malaysia!)




Talking about Toki Choi, it's a brand from Taiwan where they features different styles into one brand. The great thing about them is the quality! I'm really happy with the things I got from them, great quality with a resonable price.


Here's some stuff I get from them! Top & Bottom!! (except for bag & shoes.)



For those who are finding ripped jeans, you can get nice ripped jeans from them! All sorts of ripped jeans!!


I totally ripped this look from the site lol. Love it!

THE BFF TAG.

So.... I guess you watched the video me and Daphne did when we was in Sydney!
If you haven watch it yet, here is it (with chinese subs too all thanks to Daphne lol) :

  

 Okay, it was pretty random how we got this idea. We were chilling at coffee place in bangsar and we started asking each other questions on random stuff. We found out that there's so many things we didnt know and while we're asking halfway, I was like "Wait! we should keep some questions and do a video about this!It's going to be damn funny!!" So we did it in Sydney cuz it's cooler like that lolololll. jkjk. Yep, basically there's more questions but we used up while we're having coffee. BUT ALL THE ONES IN THE VIDEO ARE UNPLANNED LOLLLL. We cut the video so much cuz she was trying so hard to ask some questions that I don't know about her.Its quite fun to know how well your bff knows you. Well, I really think that I'm a super good observant (virgo!!!!) and I really know daphne too well!

Sometimes I think it's a great thing when brands offers free samples to try on so the customers wouldn't waste money on buying things that doesn't fit them. I mean it's better to try something before buying, so I'm that type of person who would take free food samples in supermarkets and go for the ones I like.

Just like Libresse, I've been blogging about them for years and I think it's really great when my readers (you) can get to try them. All you have to do is like Libresse Malaysia facebook page and go to https://www.facebook.com/LibresseMalaysia/app_284297444972713 for free 6pcs sample pack!

Designed to fit.


Remember the time I blogged about how I was so tempted to collect the Libresse tin cases? Guess what?? I got all five of them! I've been using Libresse pads & pantyliners for a while now and was so happy that the Libresse promotional pack came with the cute tins!

Sometimes as girls, we tend to spend more than guys do. I’ve lost count how much I spend on pads and pantyliners every month, so I will always go for the good and affordable ones like Libresse. Heck, even if there were no freebies, I would still go for Libresse because the pads & pantyliners are one of the best brands in terms of quality lolll

One thing I love about Libresse is that it’s designed to fit. Like they say, absorption is nothing without fit. Libresse pads are designed anatomically to fit the female body as they have a wider front to secure the pad in place, narrower middle so that it fits comfortably between your thighs, and folds neatly in the back for a close fit to your buttocks.

The pad has a unique contour to fit the female body from the front all the way to the back, and therefore is the only thing that’s in contact with your body and can directly absorb the menses. No more leakage!

To know more about the pad, you can view a detailed video here http://www.livelibresse.com.my/whatslibresse.html

Also, I regularly use Libresse PureFresh Green Tea Odor Control for pads & pantyliners, because I love the soft cottony feel and long-lasting freshness. And especially when I wear scented pads, I feel more comfortable when I wear them at the beginning and ending of my period. The pantyliners are also super thin and comfortable to wear that I sometimes forget that im wearing one, and the most important thing is the pantyliner stays put, especially when I’m out for gym. I’ve tried other brands before where the pad doesn’t stay in place for long :(

Anyway, if you're interested to try it you can always go to their website to get samples. Like it then buy it!!

KLFW2014

Okay I'm definitely one of the last one who blogs about KLFW 2014. (not really a blog post but just wanna record that I've been to KLFW lol). It was my first time joining KL Fashion Week, supporting my favorite local designers including Joe Chia, Pearly Wong (my awesome cousin!), Kittie YiYi...etc and sadly I couldn't make it to some shows due to work :(  

Not gonna post any runway photos here as I think you can get better photos in Fashion Sites like Tongue in Chic or you can also check out some klfw style shots in Streething. Anyway, like I said it's my first time so I'm quite amazed how some of my friends actually changes their outfits to every single show. Super semangat! Always love it when you see locals that take fashion seriously. We need more people like that!


Anyway, here's some of the pictures taken during KLFW2014.

One of the best thing is they actually got Nestle La Cremeria on board! Serving us ice creams right in front of the entrance. I mean I never expect that we can actually have ice cream while watching the show loll. Definitely added some spice to KLFW fashion shows.

I remember blogging about La Cremeria long time ago, it comes in 6 variants namely Almond Pecan Praline, Vanilla Cashew Delight, Chocolate Obsession, Chocolate Hazelnut Temptation, Hazelnut Ganache Sensation, and Strawberry Dream and is available in 1.2L tub at major hypermarkets and supermarkets nationwide.

We are having Almond Pecan Praline that day, super yummy!

Our first time!

My talented couzie Pearly Wong!

Me and Ash are both wearing pieces form her previous collection.
Accessories are all from OS Accessories (can get it from L'L'L' Plus in Sg Wang.) 

Ethan!!! My fav fashion stylist/ my nanny for Converse Seoul trip lololl. Love him!

How I like my music like that.



Music is part of my life, I don't know since when but music became so important to me, it's sort of became a key to my life now. Music is one of the element that inspires me, inspires my fashion style, inspires my life style.

I believe that as we grow up, our choice of music and our music taste changes base on what we were exposed. Like how we explore music from the songs our parents/sisters/brothers played back then, slowly we find what we like to listen and what we dont. My life was basically from English Spice Girls pop era to Chinese Jay Chou / S.H.E / Lee Hom (primary school) to Eminem / B.E.P/ rap to J-pop Koda Kumi (secondary) to …........ okay too many genre of music I listen to lololl.

If you realize that I've been sharing music around my social media platforms. I belive that music brings people along and I feel really really good when people love the music I listens. Which somehow explains why me and daphne are so close cuz we love the same type of music. We have almost the same taste and we can actually listen to the same song/album without getting bored for the whole month. It's like theres a thing belong to us, okay I sound a little bit gay now #thisisawkward but what I'm saying that, music is a really powerful thing.
We are totally addcited with Sam Smith.

Just so you know, I finally signed up to KKBOX! Apparently it's very famous in Taiwan & Hongkong but I only know about it recently lololl. It's something like spotify but then better because I'm asian and I listen to asian music too. KKBOX cover it all! Both Asian and Western music. But I still wish that they can update their English music as aggressive as the Chinese pop.

Back about exploring music, I used to go youtube and type a song that I like and then explore similar music at the related bar on the right and somehow ended in some weird japanese commercial videos (I bet everyone encounter that lololll) and now with KKBOX's discover button, where you can discover music similar to your fav songs. 

And this is my June Addiction! What I love about KKBOX is we can download this app up to 5 devices including our laptop and ipads. Just log into our acc and your playlist you created or what you played will be in any devices you use.


BEST OF THE BEST THING ABOUT KKBOX.....
There's a lyrics button where you can sing along your fav song!!!!!! I belive there's some of you who love to sing before sleeping......

I'm actually still exploring KKBOX, as I know, you can follow me and listen to what I'm playing when I'm on air. You can find me at Jane Chuck :))

You can try downloading the app and use it as free-trial and then if you love it, let me know cuz I'll be giving away KKBOX 7-days-trail pack but limited to 20 only!

Just fill in this form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/16T0EXC0qneaIxQLrOMH4I1iU9D0UHT12tfyMt_tdhsY/viewform and make sure your not the 21st person :P Good Luck!

Wifi in Japan!


There's a lot of people been asking me how do I access internet in Japan? Fyi, the wifi availabality for public use in Tokyo is not as broad as Seoul. In Seoul, you easily find wifi access even if you're just walking on any street like Myeongdong/Hongdae/Gangnam etc, and it's amazing how their public wifi works so well.

I'm quite glad that I made a great choice by booking a guesthouse in Tokyo like how I did last year (different guesthouse). My host in this trip is a super nice guy, I booked 2 rooms for 4 of us from his apartment and he actually provided us 2 pocket wifi so we can access the interenet easily around town. He even loan us the pocket wifi to Osaka and after the trip we gave it back.

Yes, it is better to get a pocket wifi if you're planning to travel in Japan. Of course you don't have to purposely buy a pocket wifi (which I don't think you can buy it here), but you can always rent it before you travel.

This is a site where I find it handy : http://www.beeemobile.com/#!wifi/c3c1

One thing I love about Beee Moblile pocket wifi is their easy pick up and drop off at the airport. All you have to do is make a reservation through their site, make payment and then pick it up when you arrive the airport. The rental charge will be applied from the date of depature until the day you drop it off at the airport. Great thing is there is no deposite charges unlike some other supplier that will actually charge a deposite up to RM600. 
You can check the rate here : http://www.beeemobile.com/#!rent--rate/cmvl


A tip for you while using the pocket wifi, remember to bring your charger everywhere as most pocket wifi battery life last up to half day only. As for Beee mobile pocket wifi, their battery usage is up to 12 hours and one pocket wifi can share up to 10 devices!!!

Anyway, I just realize that through Beeee Mobile, you can actually rent digital devices such as the famous casio TR-15, instax mini and also powerbank lololl.. Also, if you are going to travel in the winter season, you can actually rent winter wear from them too! Just rent all in one shot so you don't have to buy it for your trip haahah.

Okay that's it about having internet in Japan! Hope this helps!!

Tokyo leftovers.

So many Tokyo "leftovers" in my drive so I decided do a photo post since I have no idea what to do with it. Looking at them make me miss Tokyo so much! I am so gonna go back there again next year, hopefully I can make it at the same Cherry Blossom season. If you're planning for a Tokyo trip, I strongly suggest to go on the Cherry Blossom season cuz it'll make your trip extra worthy and here's  why :
  1. The weather is just right, not too cold, but not warm. Big plus point for fashionistas who love to wear layering outfits, just in time to wear our favourtie biker jackets lol.
  2. Hanami Hanami Hanami!!!! Hanami experience is one of the best part of my Japan trip, you can read about it here.
  3. You'll get to see/eat seasonal items, Sakura burgers, coffee, sweets, etc.
  4. The streets will look extra beautiful with the cherry blossoms. Trust me, it's like what you seen in their anime scene.
  5. You might bump into Miranda Kerr lololl. ( Miranda Kerr was in Tokyo at the same time for some events, no I didn't bump into her but just that it's cool lololl.)
  6. Probably the whole world will be in Tokyo and your news feed will be flooded with Toyko pics and you don't want to feel left out. hahha.
Anyway, here's my Tokyo leftovers that I have no idea what to do with them (mostly food...so don't blame me for making you hungry!)

Best Tsukemen ever, had them last year and decided to go back again!
 Okay I don't really know how to describe the place but I found it on Google Map lolololl so click here to find out where (underground restaurant) . It's near Birkenstock meiji-dori.
