Open Your City

I'm not an at-home type of person, I love going out and getting inspired by people, music, and the environment, which explains why I'm definitely a city girl. My biggest dream could possibly be travelling to cities around the world.

Okay, maybe I should start with the six cities that made it on to Heineken's new limited edition bottles, London, New York, Shanghai, Berlin, Amsterdam and our very own Kuala Lumpur (okay so it's 5 more to go)!

I'm pretty proud to be a kay-elle girl cuz I think Kuala Lumpur is one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Especially the Twin-Towers, thank god we “planted” it there before any other city thought about it lol. I'm serious!

Kuala Lumpur is amazing. There's plenty of “hidden gems” around this city to be discovered! If you follow my instagram, you can see that I've been hunting for new food places or hide-out cafes, I really need to credit Heineken for the “Open Your City” campaign for some of the “hidden gems”. If you're wondering how it works, it's actually pretty simple.

Just go to openyourcity.heineken.com and enable your location service in your device, then you'll see these buttons popping around the streets.

Please don't tell me KL is boring unless you've been to every single spot.

Another quick life hack to know the latest cool place in town is to go twitter and tweet @wherenext and your location to get instant updates about events and parties happening in town.


For more information on Heineken’s Cities campaign or to locate new gems to explore in your city be sure to check out. openyourcity.heineken.com

I think most people thought they know me but honestly, everything on the internet about me is the part where I show you and there's things I keep it low, I mean the internet is dangerous! I hope people should learn not to judge a person on what they show on the internet.

20 Facts About Me :

How to rock your first job interview.


Hi guys! It's been awhile! If you realize, I've been collaborating with Libresse for years and still counting, and I'm here to talk a lil bit about my recent project with Libresse!

I'm now 22 and I bet most of you who reads my blog since the day I started are have no graduated from college. I remember blogging about school and things like that and now slowly, I'm an adult. It's like you know you are out of the whole teenager phase when you step into your first job interview.

I'm not sure about you but I remember I failed my first job interview and another few after that lolll. I didn't take it seriously. I didn't know there is so much to prep for job interviews and all I knew was to dress presentable loll. Apparently there's more to do and check before going to an interview. It's really important how you make the first impression to the company, either they buy it or they hate it.

Of course, you have to act differently when you interview for different types of job but having the cheerful and positive mindset is a big plus to most companies. I think no one wants to hire a sad person. Confidence is the point!

Anyway, if you have no idea why you failed your interviews, you can check out “Hello, Confidence” by Libresse. It's a site where you can learn how to prep for your job interviews. First things first, learn how to dress for your interview. You can also learn about hair and make-up tutorial by Cheeserland, and other helpful videos on this page.


You can also upload your outfit and get rated to see which is a go-go and which is a no-go.


Next, after you get your perfect outfit, there's some great tips for you before facing your first job interview.

So much to learn!!!

First you can check out their checklist to see what you need to prepare for your job interview. I think one of the most important things to have is a list of questions that you could ask about my job or the company. This leaves a good impression on yourself as you’ll look prepared and highly interested in the particular job. Also, you’ll get to understand the company more and consider further if it’s the right job for you.

You can also take a look at interview Do’s and Don’ts and try to avoid as many Don’ts as possible! Sometimes even the smallest thing can leave a very bad impression on yourself. For example, it’s always a must to be at the interview at least 10 minutes earlier. Being on time is fine, but being late even for 5 minutes is a no-no lolll you don’t want to give the interviewer the impression that you’re not a punctual person.

Do check out the FAQs for answers to common questions asked during interviews. For example, don’t most of us want to know if we should follow up on the interview cos that would make us look desperate? You can find out the answer here loll and remember to read the other FAQs too.

You can also learn how to rock your interview by keeping the conversation going. I think it's important to own the conversation and keep things hyped. It's really bad when your interview is boring and awkward. Which happened to me on my first interview when my anxiety kicked in and all I wanted was to do end the interview quickly :/

The part where I hated the most was when the interviewer asked “Tell me about yourself.. ”. My mind literally went blank cuz I have 0 confidence about myself. I have no idea what's good about me. I gave an awkward smile and it's a very bad closure for my interview. So if you're wondering how to react, go on to the site to see how people rocked their pitch about themselves. I basically think the key point is to sound confident but not full of yourself. Keep it real.

Don't forget to pitch your idea with Shine On too! Learn more about boosting your confidence and nailing your job interivew here :

2 Step Synergy Effect Mask

 If you follow my blog long enough, you should know that I love skin care products cuz I believe that good skin is always better than make up coverage. I love trying on new skin care products so my whole room is full with never ending brands of products lol. Well, today is going to be another skin care sharing post and this is one of the best product I ever shared on my blog!


Basically they have four types, Moisturizing, Pore Cleansing, Whitening and Anti-wrinkle. I've tried the Whitening one so it's not in the picture above lololll. I've actually seen it featured on a few bloggers blog and I always wanted to try this! It's from a very famous Korea Cosmetic Surgery Hospital and I'm glad now we can get it from Hermo (yes, selling excusively online with hermo only)

It's all in korean so yea... but I have to say that I love the whole packaging quality (you know some products has very cin-cai pakaging and you don't feel like buying it but this one is like so medical-ish you can feel it's a good product already by it's packaging.)

Eventho it's in korean, I think no one is dumb enough to not understand step one and step two loll. It's a two piece mask, just tear it of and put on je lah.
One is for the upper part of your face

Another one comes with ear hooks. To tighten our double chin!

You know you're doing it right when you look like you're having plastic surgery lolololll.

After 20 minutes, dont need to whipe off, just massage the excess and let it absorb into your face. I love how they absorb really quickly, I actually used the excess in the pack on my body, haha don't waste it! After you'll done with everything, you willl feel the amazing-ness of this mask physically and mentally. You can feel your face is lifted and tighten! ONE OF THE BEST MASK I EVER USED IN MY LIFE (so far).

Anyway, you can only get it exclusively online on Hermo.my with a price of RM82.50/5pcs or RM17.90/pcs. Personally thinks that you should just get the 5pcs pack with different maks. You'll love it! 

If you are from Singapore , please go to their Singapore site > http://www.hermo.sg/flagship/regencos.html

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!
