How I spend my weekends...


Another one of those weekends that I get to spend a productive, quality ME time and it feels super awesome! I gave myself a list of things which I need to do over the weekend...

1. Hit the gym for Body Pump (Yes...after much procrastination, I finally signed up for a membership with Fitness First Platinum).

2. Hit the Sauna.

3. Grocery shopping to stock up on food supplies.

4. Thread my eyebrows and upper lip.

5. Cook dinner, a different dish for a change - Balsamic Herb Grilled Chicken with Garlic & Honey top with Portobello Mushroom and Bacon...yumms!



6. Play with Mr. Snuggles and to try feeding him with chicken breast meat for a change.



7. Make my own Aspirin Mask... :) It's suppose to help remove dead skin cells, improves wrinkles, skin discoloration, photo-damaged skin & acne.



8. Paint my nails



9. Watch Korean drama.

10. Blog... :)


I always look forward to weekends like this. Will plan more next week! Cheers! :)

A new member in my family...

Meet Mr. Snuggles, my lil sugar-devil.



I adopted him from the previous owner just because they have a new beagle...! Apparently I heard it's hard for them to handle...quite sad lor having to neglect this lil bugger. When I first got him, the so called "cage" was stinking up quite bad. It's not even a cage...it's a glass aquarium where they put snakes and spiders in them for display at pet shops. I mean SERIOUSLY...who puts a sugar glider in an aquarium. Even his lil pouch (sleeping bag) has a funky smell to it. You've no idea how I felt, so I decided to go to a pet shop to get fresh new things just for him.

At the beginning, I was clueless on how to care for a sugar glider so I did my research on YouTube, Blogs,...you name it...I did it all in 48 hours after finding out that I will be getting one. I was so excited about it! Back then, I've always wanted to own a glider. If you really put your mind into something that interest you, you'll take the effort to study and educate yourself on it.

Now back to Mr. Snuggles! He's quite a biter, feisty too if I may add. His biting behaviour is common apparently as it would take him awhile to get accustomed to my scent. Can't blame him for trying to defend himself. I've been bitten to a point that it's bleeding and getting scratched all over my hands and fingers. Sounds nasty rite? Well, it isn't that bad really. All about getting use to it.

Of coz, not forgetting Xander, my lovely handsome boy who has been with me through thick & thin. Watched him grow from the day he was born till now.

Baby Xander

6 - 7 Weeks Old

My handsome boy, Xander!

Dad has been taking really good care of him back in Penang. I really do miss him a lot. I haven't seen him in months! Hope all turns out well for me soon so I can go back for a visit. *Fingers cross*

VEET gives me soft and smooth skin that brings out the confidence in me!

The title says it all...and I want to prove that...

Having facial hair on the upper lip is not the coolest thing to have on a girl, even if it’s a few strands growing and only clearly visible under sunlight. People who came in close contact with me usually made it obvious…THANKS! Yes I have a mustache and it’s not that prominent okay! Embarrassing if I may add but I do make it a point and effort to get it removed.

It started out from my first experience with threading not my eyebrows but my whole face. Wanted to feel how it was like to have a hairless face....-___- Since then, I started seeing facial hair growing on the upper lip and I think it got worst. That was not the only problem! I started to see pimples growing around my lip area and that was just too much for me!

Now, you must be wondering, what's up with the facial hair topic? You see, I got invited to a Veet® event at Hotel Maya for a short seminar about hair removal...


...and had a mini pampering session after. I have always been a fan of razors so when they asked me to give it a try, I was skeptical. I have never Veet® before...so I did...



...on my upper lip. I look retarded! I had my unwanted hair removed 2 days before the Veet® event, therefore I had nothing to wax but my face. -_____- Anyway, I think I was like the only one in the room who did it. 


Honestly, I love it! Best part is, it did not give me any form of reaction or breakouts on my lip area unlike how threading does. My upper lip was red after the wax and it's normal. It took about 15 - 20 mins before the redness faded. So if you are planning to wax your upper lip, make sure you get it done a day before. Smells good too and YAY! No more mustache!

So then I waited for a couple of days before I started seeing hair on my legs...so here goes...

Easy Hair Removal with Veet® Easy Grip Wax Strips 

  1. Rub strip between hands to warm wax.
  2. Hold EasyGrip tab and peel strips apart.
  3. Apply strip to leg with EasyGrip tab at bottom.
  4. Hold skin taut. Pull strip back against direction of hair growth in one motion.
  5. After waxing, use Perfect Finish wipes.







    Can you see the difference!?! It looks fairer on the waxed part. How cool is that! And finally, you just finish it off by wiping your leg with the Perfect finish wipes, to give that silky smooth skin texture.

    You can even find tutorial lessons on how to use their other range of Veet® hair removal products.

    3 Easy Steps to use Veet® Hair Removal Cream


    Let's be honest here, Veet® does not only give me soft & smooth skin but it really brings out the confidence in me. I use to always look down whenever I walk, or wear long maxi dresses to cover up my legs. Why?!? It grows out so fast...and I have to keep shaving at least once every 3 - 4 days. So far, after using Veet®, I no longer have to worry about hair growing out too fast (IT CAN LAST FOR 4 WEEKS!!!!!) and it makes my skin feel comfortable and moisturize. I even snipped off one of my favourite maxi dress to show off my legs and I felt good about it!


    Before
    After (Say HELLO! to my hairless legs! ;))

    I've just turned from a razor fan to a Veet® fan! *Grins*

    I want you to take over control...

    Why am I feeling so restless!!!!! Signs of getting old?!? Attended the H-Artistry on Saturday and to be fair, I was not feeling that great about myself. Been down with a virus for the whole week. It's frustrating really! 

    Eva Simmons was rocking the stage that night! If you don't know who she is, check her video below:





    Andy Kho

    It seems to be some sort of a mini-ritual, to be taking pictures with Andy Kho at every event I'm at. -___- For one, he's a really good friend and secondly, he's an awesome photographer!


    Eva Simons


    Anyhow, that's Eva Simons! I really enjoyed her performance! Too bad, I missed the opportunity to take pictures with her, I was soooo close!!! Bump into her as I was heading out of the ladies but she looks like she was in a rush or something. :(

    No more partying for the time being. It's really taking a toll on me and I feel completely drained after. 
    All I want to do now is just take a break, chill and get well soon. So what's there to do? 

    Hmm....

    Butter me up!

    So did you peeps enjoyed getting buttered last Saturday? For those who attended The Butter Factory would know. It was originated from Singapore and now it's here in Malaysia.

    It was pack like sardines that night, and I really didn't get the opportunity to capture any good pictures. So, I'm gonna share some really awesome shots from Andy's camera taken that night!













    It's time for me to take a break. Been partying too much over the weekend.

    Look out for the next upcoming event with Hennessy Artistry!Stay Tune!

    Vodkas & Martial Arts...an awesome combo maybe?

    It has been one hell of a hectic weekend for me. There were so many events happening at a go.

    On Thursday, I got invited by Andy Kho to attend the Belvedere Vodka event held at The Pool, Ampang. This place is perfect for lounging after a long day at work. Styled up with faux-leather couches surrounding the pool. It's really just a place to sit back with a glass of margaritas in hand and not do anything.







    Such a pity they're not open during the day, or else I would find the time for sun-tanning! 



    *****


    The following day, I attended the Drum Tao event which was held in KLCC Plenary Hall. It's a world-renowned Japanese martial art and drum playing troupe showcasing extraordinary skills. It's their 1st ever live performance in Malaysia and I'm honoured to have gotten the tickets to watch them perform. 

    Drum Tao is basically an innovative contemporary Japanese production that displays a mix of dance and martial arts with mesmerising drum beats. It's all about physical fitness, dynamism and extraordinary synchronisation. It was overall a standing ovation performance.  










    Come back soon!!! Dying to see more actions and stunts from you fellas!!! ;)

    Feels good to be home!

    With the Raya mood that's on-going, I thought I'd just take a break from my computer over the weekend. Now that I'm back to work, might as well rant it over on what had happened during my trip back to Penang.

    Woke up at 3:00am on a Saturday morning thinking that I could escape the horrendous jam everyone has been talking about. Hit the highway at 4:30am. Guess I wasn't the only genius to think that, the earlier you get out of Klang Valley, you'll be safe from all the traffic. Everyone else was doing the same thing!! FML

    Took me 7 1/2 hours to reach Penang!! It's excruciating!! Never again will I be driving back on a festive season. I'm gonna book my flight in advance for the next long holiday. I was seriously in no mood whatsoever to take pictures. Even the stop were jam pack with people taking turns to use the toilet and it's disgusting.

    Anyway that didn't stop me from enjoying Penang's hawker food the following day.

    Famous Ah Leng Char Koay Teow with extra prawn & duck egg

    Seafood Poh Piah @ Padang Brown

    Fried Oyster
     Waited 1 1/2 hours for this but it was worth it!

    Long awaited Bak Bee Hoon

    Orgasmic I tell you! 

    Being home just feels so good! Having my lil baby Xander greeting me at the gate makes me feel welcome.


    Okay, not so little anymore but he'll still be my lil baby! I just cannot stand that adorable look on his face! 

    Didn't do much in Penang really, other than chilling and catching up with some old friends over beer for the next 4 days.

    Now that I'm back in KL, I feel extremely bloated! My journey took 5 hours back thanks to those reckless drivers on the road. A total of 4 - 5 accidents happened on the way to KL. *shakes head*

    So there, I will never travel to anywhere by car ever again on any Festive Seasons! 

    Owh owh owh...and I almost forgot! Selamat Hari Raya to all my Muslim friends again. Do apologize for the late wishes. CHEERS!
