Ikan Patin…Nom…Nom…Nom…

I made reservations with Patin Place Puchong to celebrate the bf birthday (now fiance) on the 27th Feb 2017. We arrived in the evening around 6pm. I’m thankful that they have placed some balloons for us.  We were warmly welcomed by the owner, Ardeen. While awaiting for the ikan patin and sayur rangup to cook, we had some time to play the IQ puzzle my then bf; had purchased from Japan.

IQ puzzle, he completed 1 puzzle, and a few more others.

These are the food pictures:-

IMG_2240Dried Steamed Ancient Brick, Ikan Patin.

It is mixed with soya source. Being a fan of ikan patin and no place to go in Klang valley, my bf was contented that I bring him for the ikan patin meal. Ancient brick is their specialty. They used the ancient brick to steam the patin fish hence the different taste comparing to normal cooked steamed fish in a normal restaurant. If you do not like fishy smell taste on your fish, this place is highly recommended.

Taste: 8/10

Price: starts from RM68+

IMG_2239Sayur Rangup- Rangup.

This dish is fried kangkung ( water spinach) something like finger food, it came before the ikan patin arrived. It tasted like fried mushrooms. It is crunchy, but don’t leave it too long, it may turn soggy.

Taste: 7/10

Price: RM15.90

IMG_2244For dessert I opted for coconut ice cream. As you can see in the picture, they put in coconut biscuits and it is served in a coconut shell.

Price: Rm8.90

It will be good if you can arrive the restaurant earlier, because around 8pm customers starts coming in. If you do not like crowds. This is purely halal restaurant.

Something different about this restaurant; they homemade a few other products such as; health products,  e.g Habbatus Sauda (Black seed oil), Bentong Ginger,& Extra Virgin Oil and recently sells some cosmetic product e.g . To find out more click on their Facebook page .

Cleansers that Do more- EverSoft 2017 (collaboration)

Hello everyone it has be 3 months since my last post. I would like to apologize for not making any blog post since my last February post on clay mask. Give me more time to do my duty as I continue to update you with new things that happen in my life.

IMG_6265

The latest new that I receive from Salina & Associates PR Sdn Bhd, a product by Wipro Unza (M) Sdn Bhd. 

2 In 1 Cleanser & Toner

2 in 1 cleanser & toner main

EVERSOFT™ Yuzu 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner

The 1st product in this post, is EVERSOFT™ Yuzu 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner. It claims to be 100% organic, coming from organic plant extracts. It contains tea tree oil that I would recommend for those who have oily skin or combination (like me) skin. Besides that this product also has Vitamin E that can draw out all impurities.

 

What I like about EVERSOFT™ Yuzu 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner  (1) Good for people busy people like me that wants to use lesser time to care for the face. (2) Those who want to save money on getting a toner can also try this. (3) I love the cooling feel on my face that I believed it was the tea tree oil in it that cause the cooling effect. (4) I don’t have to lather too much on my face, because a small amount is good enough. I remembered that I pump too much at the 1st time when I use, last week. It took me a long time to wash everything off my face. Feel that this is a good bargain.

Price in the market: RM17.80 (WM)/ RM18.70 (EM)* for 150 ml

Micellar Cleansing Water

IMG_6267

I love that we have a bottle lock on top.

Micellar Cleansing Water MINE

Next product is EVERSOFT™ Tomato Micellar Cleansing Water. This is made of 100% organic Tomato. I notice that they say it can remove toughest make up. I decide to try on my hands, as I did not wear any make up to work today. I applied the thickest foundation together with lipstick.

What I love about EVERSOFT™ Tomato Micellar Cleansing Water? (1) unlike other make up remover this is not oily at all. (2) I do not need to rinse it off. (3) it works like a cleanser and a toner as well (similar to EVERSOFT™ Yuzu 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner ).

For better effect, pump 1-2 pumps on your face cotton and leave it on make up areas for a few seconds, then wipe away. Especially for eyes and thick make up. If you are using light daily make up, I believe this is sufficient for you.

Price in the market: RM22.90 (WM)/ RM24.00(EM)* for 300ml

If you are afraid to purchase a wrong product for your skin, don’t worry because:-

100% Money Back Logo

Today is Thursday so Song Jong Ki’s Forencos Thursday Mask {Collaboration}

16443642_244839839299559_112178659_n

7 Days Mask modeled & recommended by the very well known Descendant of the Sun actor Song Joong Ki. These are mask for daily usage, Thursday mask is part of the 7 Days Mask by Forencos (For Envoirmental Cosmetics) . Made of natural silk and cellucose fiber sheet which can comfort the skin and fits in well.

Tea Tree Relax Silk Mask

I remember when I’m a teenager, I often purchase teatree products. It is good if you have pimples on your skin, it will help you heal your skin. Teatree is effective especially for sensitive and irritated skin. It will balance the skin from being too oily , moisturize and soothes it. It also contains 50mg of horse fat (good for dry skin).

16466954_244840612632815_962141725_n

Although this is not the cheapest mask in Korea, it claims to have a full bottle of serum comparing with other normal face mask that we often purchase outside and of course this is a higher range mask in Korea. Don’t get too disappointed though, as you can get this mask for only RM10/pc (same as in Korea) from Happymintz.

Take a look at their Facebook page Happymintz  or scan the QR code to find out more!

 

Feedback:

Feels a bit starchy when put on. Very cooling on the face. Need to place on the face for 10 to 20 min but I left it on only for 10 mins. Still have other things to work on later tonight after this review. Leaving my face softer and not so dry after my facial soap.

Do take a look at my Instagram or Facebook account as I posted pictures and videos.

Shocking Pack 2 Review {Collaboration post}

img_1904

A picture with the product after using it.

I read about this brand over the internet and realized they have a few products of the same brand with the same name, “shocking”. I guess it works good on skin. Decided to try it on today since it is a Chinese New Year holiday for me today. Before heading back to work.

Lets look at some main ingredients:

  1. Bentonite– that came from volcanic ashes 2,000 years ago. It helps by firming your skin due to astringent.
  2. Charcoal powder– to cleans pores and remove dead skin.
  3. Kaolin– a royal family clay during ancient times, it is believed to make our skin brighter.
  4. Jojoba seed- Jojoba of course would moisturize our skin. 
  5. Fruit extract– orange, grape, tomato,lemon and lime. As you know these fruits keeps our skin hydrated.

a picture before Shocking Pack 2

This is the look of the product, according to the seller, this can be use once a week and this bottle can last up for 2 months (also depending on the volume you apply it on).

Feedback :  It smells like foundation or also clay. It has microbeads in them. Not as hot as I thought it would be, but it will be like as if steaming your face. It you apply more, you will feel the steam more. I notice my skin became brighter (picture on the left is a before picture & after picture is in the middle) after using it only once. I wet my face before putting it on. Very easy to apply (very right side, is a picture of me with the 3 in 1 Shocking Pack 2). 3 in 1 works very well for a person on the go like me. After the whole procedure for better effect to care for your skin, do remember to do toner and moisturizer.

You can check my Instagram or Facebook account as I posted pictures and video to show how i applied Shocking Pack 2, on.

If you are interested in this product you can scan this QR code if you have a wechat scan this  QR code and send: Labelyoung10 will get 10% off for shocking pack 2 with free shipping.

2017 the year of Fire Rooster!

Postcare is known as being the 1st postcard station in Malaysia. I have always loved postcards, this concept is especially appealing to me as last year I went back into doing postcrossing. For the love of illustrations and caricatures, I was told by a friend of mine about this postcard station. I didn’t get to make time to go there until December last year. My sister and I went there a week before Christmas to do some last minute Christmas shopping.

img_1461

my sister and the many postcards that we do not know which to pick, all so cute!!!

We so love the place as it is a small cozy place. We don’t have to worry if we did not bring our stationeries along, as Postcare provides pens, stamps and markers. We also don’t have to worry about not having any postcards to write on, as the postcards stocks are uncountable.

img_1808

The post box!! A must “prop” to take a picture together. Will & Kay on the left. My Sis & I on the right.

There, we were entertained by Will and Kay. They are both very friendly and approachable people. Will is the founder of Postcare ; Will and Kay both creates beautiful postcards as well. I love that Postcare house a variety of postcards with different theme and style. Besides Will and Kay, there are many other local artist that create their postcards for Postcare.

Other then illustrations and caricatures, I also love postcards that shows the life of Malaysia. I guess this is where all my favourite postcards will be in. Due to distance and time, I only managed to visit Postcare once, but I managed to purchased twice from them through the internet.

See how they decorated their envelopes to be posted to me? One of them is the most recent mail. It came with the postcards I purchased for the Chinese New Year. Can you noticed the rooster stamp on the envelopes.

Some  of my favourites:-

  1. Childhood snacks – these are so nostalgic! 
img_1615

Popo one of my favourite snack drawn on the postcard.

img_1595

Pop Corn, Ding Dang and Tora

I know these 3 postcards would have reminded a Malaysian 90’s kid about childhood very much. Thank you so much Will for creating these postcards. (shed tears)

 

2. Chinese New Year

These are my personal favourites for the Chinese New Year. I love the most is the heart shaped postcard as the front is actually a Chicken. The angpows are lovely as well, it is an egg shaped when you open it up.The blue angpow has a local twist to it with the word ayam on it.

3. Hugs

Cleopatra used Moor for her skin, I want to try it as well.

Happy new year 2017 to all my readers, sorry I have been away from blogging for almost 2 weeks. Have been busy writing for another website and also busy with my full time job.

I received the Eumora Classic Facial Bar sample on the 5th of Jan this year. Decided to test on my skin as it has an outbreak recently. It is claim to be lathered on my skin and leave for 3-mintues. Thinking that it will help me with my nose and my under chin area, I’m so going to try it on, to see if it is real like what it claims.

What is it made of?

Eumora is made of 1) Moor, which has been use widely during Roman time and then Cleopatra had been known to use it as a beauty element for her skin and 2) Micro algae that can help to increase skin cells energy because it has Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B12. Such indulgence for my face!

I used it for the 1st time on the 5th of Jan 2017, I’m a lazy person that will love it when I use facial wash that I can just lather and wash straight away. Seems like Eumora needs to change my schedule a little bit. So I read the direction to use the soap bar, 1) I should not add water directly on the soap and I should wet my hands and rub the bar between my hands. 2) I need to lather it on my face gently, 3) leave it on my face for 3 minutes (I need to look at my phone’s digital clock since I only have a normal clock on my house wall).  I felt that my skin tightened when I waited after 3 min. Maybe it is an effect of the moor soft clay. After 3 minutes I rinse my face.

On the 7th of Jan I did not see any much changes on my skin. Only on the 14th of Jan I finally see changes on my face, although I’m having period now, I still feel that my outbreak wasn’t as bad as when I have my period last time. I like it that it has already clear up my black heads on my forehead, as you can see in the 1st picture my forehead is redder than the after picture.

To keep my skin not too dry after using Eumora, I do a mask occasionally to balance up my dry skin, and apply some moisturizer after that. I’m happy with this product, maybe will get one for my brother and sister, as they have pimples still on their face.

Results

These are 3 pictures to show you my skin result, I did not make any picture editing ya, I just merged the picture together so that I could see the difference on my face. Today I felt that my face is softer than last week.

img_1707-main

Left is Before, Right side is today. ( after 9 days). you can see that the redness on my skin subside.

img_1708-main

Top is Before using Emora & Bottom is after using Emora for 9 days. Redness and black heads recovered.

img_1709-main

The difference of the top and the bottom, nose is cleaner than the top after using Emora.

Thank you Eumora for allowing me to review this to the public. For more information of the product please email ask.eumora@gmail.com .

nicely wrapped in a box

then another layer of plastic bag

img_0102

lovely picture of bf & I

I hope he likes it. Knowing this guy is one of the best Christmas gift that my God has ever given to me. I’m thankful to be able to spend time & learn about him more and more each day. I remembered the time when we 1st started, from the time we started looking at 1st day covers, opened the door for me, sat on the spinning chair, 1st confessed to each other about our care for each other, 1st held hands & prayed over the phone. There are many other 1st times we had together in the whole year. This is the final month of the year. Memories of the 1st times just floods through my mind. The times when I cry and he will comfort me, hug me and dry my tears. I’m a content person.

Quality of the Morty Luggage Tag, I so love the quality of the luggage tag. I know it will be lasting and durable as it is printed on a 3mm thick, hard board material.

Price of Morty Luggage Tag, Rm55 for 1 person + Additional is another RM20, and if you customize your favourite background like I did, Eric will charge depending on the difficulty. I purchased mine at RM125. If you want to give a gift to your love one, you should consider giving this special item. Or you can also view other products in Eric’s website 

You can get it as a gift for a friend, a farewell gift, and also a birthday gift. It works for people that loves customized items. Hope you had a great time during Christmas!
