MY EVERYDAY SKINCARE ROUTINE

I've been blogging a lot about skin care these past few years and I always believe that keeping good skin is more important than putting on make up. I am the kind of person who will invest in skin care products, even my cosmetics are skin-care based. 

Anyway, a lot of people have been asking about my skin care routine on my previous make up tutorial so I decided to do a really quick one.

To be honest, my skin care routine is really really simple, the only fancy thing is this cleansing brush from Clinique. The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is gentle yet reacts greatly to the skin. It doesn’t cause wrinkles and my skin feels smooth to the touch after every usage. You can watch my vlog below to see how gentle it is.



I didn't know about the rave surrounding this cleansing brush until I got my hands on it. This really made me feel like I've wasted my life hand washing for nothing. I mean hand washing is more like cleansing the surface but there are areas on our face that our hands couldn't reach. This Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush does the magic. I can see my skin literally glows and brightens almost immediately after I have washed my face with the cleansing brush. I'm not exaggerating but I'm really amazed by how it works!


I noticed one of the biggest difference after using this brush is that I have reduced the need for painful extraction because my face is cleansed thoroughly. It is recommended that you start off with just 30 seconds once a day and then prepare your skin to be able to use the product twice a day - like how I am using it.

Sleek design, just fits perfectly on the palms. 

Comes with a cap to cover the brush.


The Cleansing Brush comes in two different bristles


I really love that this cleansing brush has two coloured bristles which target different areas of the face. The white bristles are effective in helping me cleanse my cheeks area. It’s gentle and perfect for sweeping away dulling flakes on my skin. This is as thorough as it gets!

The green bristles on the other hand is angled to specifically target hard-to-reach areas like the inner corners of my nose which can be quite difficult to cleanse thoroughly with my bare hands. But with the help of the green bristles, I’m able to cleanse all these nooks and crannies of my face effectively.

One charge can lasts up to 72hours!

If in your normal skin care routine you didn't do your cleansing right, you're actually wasting your other skincare products. When your face is thoroughly cleansed, it can then absorb the rest of the skin care products better. I’ve also noticed there are fewer residues after washing my face, especially when I try wiping off dirt with my toner after cleansing.

Left: Cleansing my face without the Cleansing Brush. Right: Cleansing with the Clinique Sonic Brush. Dirt residues are less noticeable after face cleansing.

Btw, you don't even need to scrub weekly with this gentle daily exfoliation. Saves you all the time and hassle!

Frankly, it's a really great product & worth investing in as it comes with a 2 years limited warranty. The unit consists of the Cleansing Brush retailing at RM350 (USB variant) while the brush head is at RM93 per unit.

I'm definitely gonna buy it for my mom as an early Xmas pressie. Afterall, great things are meant to be shared, right?



That being said, I’ll be having a Meet and Greet session in collaboration with Clinique on 13th Dec 2014 and only 5 lucky winners along with a friend will be chosen to attend and win exclusive Clinique door gifts. Just answer this question: The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush comes with two coloured bristles, namely….

Can't get enough of Shanghai.

I miss Shanghai. I realized that I have a thing for night scenery, especially city nights, where the city lights are on. I don't remember how beautiful Shanghai was back then when I first visited, prolly 10 years ago, and I'm so so so glad that I get to travel to Shanghai again.

I bet you guys already watched the Travel vlog I posted days ago (I don't know how to balance my time for recording and taking pictures but I tried my best), so here's some pictures taken during my Shanghai trip :


The first night in Shanghai, we had dinner at one of the Best French Cuisine in Shanghai, Mr & Mrs Bund. All thanks to Rachel from H&M for arranging this dinner, the restaurant place is so beautiful, facing the bund.

Tomato Salad. 

Beef Carpaccio Venise.

Duck Confit with Foie Gras & Ceps is the bomb.

Strawberry Triffle.
 Okay I looks like a fish bowl but it's actually very pretty in real! Just not photogenic enough lol.


Second day was all about Alexander Wang!
On our way to Hotel Penisula, the buildings around the bund are so beautiful. 

We (with medias from HK & Philippines ) had a 15 minutes talk with Alexander Wang about the collection. I'm so glad to meet him in person and I am totally amazed by his energetic character. 
If you want to read about the interview, click here

 On the same day, we had Yun Nan food for Lunch @ Lost Heaven. So much yummy in my tummy!

Finally, the night has come, came all the way from KL to Shanghai just for this one special night, for Alexander Wang X H&M party in Shanghai. Also heard this is the first time H&M celebrates their collaborations in Asia. I am more then glad to attend this event. AND I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW 2NE1 WAS GOING TO APPEAR until I saw my followers comments on my instagram. #successbaby.jpg

but first, let me take a selfie... (okay this song ada outdated.)

Oh! Random one. We had king crab before the event. So we literally smelled like crab after that lolollll. (inside joke)


Hat : H&M  
Leather Jacket : Zara
Dress : Joe Chia for Her
Shoes : Lonely Dream
Bag : Proenza Schouler PS11

I think I was busy taking videos, I did not have much pictures for the party...

Lucky us! We get to buy the collection at the pop up store they have, but only 5 pieces each :( Actually fair enough lah, people in KL started to queue 2 days before (and I know who started it HAHAHAHAHA)

Okay, I don't know how my hairband looks like, but there's people who thought I was wearing hijab. I am not pissed that they thought I was wearing hijab but I am pissed that why are these people being so stereotype about hijabs. Please put some respect.

Okay, end it with a selfie. heh. Good night!

ALEXANDERWANGXHM Party in Shanghai

Sometimes, some things are too good to be true. I can't believe that I actually made it to Shanghai for ALEXANDER WANG X H&M launch party, like I just can't believe that it actually happened. #luckygirlislucky 

I decided to do a little travel video for my Shanghai trip and yes, including 2NE1 speical performances. Honestly I have no idea 2NE1 was part of it until that evening itself. I think I died a few times in this trip. I'm still editing the pictures taken during the trip, meanwhile, please enjoy my Shanghai travel video :

Sony Xperia Z3.




It's been a while since I’ve had a hands-on experience with a new gadget! I'm really excited for this one as it has been on my wishlist for some time - the Sony Xperia Z3. I found out about the Sony Xperia Z series smartphones from my fav instagrammer/social media/makeup artist from Thailand, Pearypie. She has many cool stuff and I think she did a pretty great job introducing the Sony Xperia Z series.

credits to @pearypie


Yes, the Sony Xperia Z3 is famous for its waterproof and camera functions. If I could keep the phone, I would really want to do an underwater photoshoot with it :( It's so so so cool! If I'm not wrong, many celebrities have done underwater photoshoots with this phone. How amazing is that? Apple, y u no do waterproof phone?!?!


The Sony Xperia Z3 features a super clear HD camera with 20.7 megapixels. I don't know how any other phone will be able to beat Sony? Sony always produces the best cameras (cuz I own a few Sony cameras lol)


The Sony Xperia Z3 is actually well known for its super long lasting battery life. Powered by a non-removable Li-Ion 3100 mAh battery, featuring up to 740hr (3G standby mode) and 16hr (3G talk time).


Btw, the Sony Z series family now includes the Sony Xperia Z3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact just like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. No offence, I personally love the design of the Sony Xperia Z3 compared to the iPhone 6 :/ Anyway, I would say that this Sony Xperia Z3 completely beats the iPhone 6 because of functions like the waterproof smartphone, great camera features and long-life battery. So much wins. For more info about the Sony Xperia Z3, please visit:
