A stress-free vacation for your skin / Miniel Skinlab review

21 August 2019

Hello kawans! It's finally time for some skincare talk! Today I will be sharing a review on some skincare products I tried from a new local brand in town called Miniel Skinlab. I noticed that I rarely use any products from local skincare brands, but these looked promising and because the ocean blue really caught my eyes, I decided to try these out.

As Miniel Skinlab is still very new, they currently only have 2 products - their Hydraque Boost Serum and Hydraque Gel Mask. The hydraque series is focused on fighting dehydrated skin and just so if you're wondering(because it is a local brand kan?), yes! both serum and gel mask are Halal Certified! I have been trying both of these products for about 3 weeks now so if you'd like to know more about these 2 products, do keep reading!

3D2N Sabah staycation trip ft. bestie

15 July 2019

Hello kawans! In my previous post I mentioned that my next post would be beauty related but I just really felt like writing this now so please bear with me😚! If this isn't your first time stumbling across my tiny little online journal, you probably already know how much I like writing about the places I've been to(no matter how long ago my trip was lol). These kind of posts kinda help me preserve my memory and I guess I try to keep em as informative as possible for anyone reading. Well, last September(not too long ago right😅?) my bestie and I went to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for a short super chill staycation and here's a short travelogue post on it! If you're interested to see how we spent our staycation, do keep reading! :D

4D3N in Melbourne City ft. lotsa food [major throwback]

12 July 2019

Hello it's been awhile(nothing new there haha) but hii, I'm finally writing up the finale post for my major major throwback Australia travelogue. Every day I don't finish writing this, I feel this sense of guilt and I don't even know why lol so let's get this done asap. My last blog post was a throwback to my 3days and 2nights spent at Uluru, Northern Territory Australia. For this post, I will mainly focus on the Melbourne CBD area so I will be sharing about where we stayed, what we kinda did, and mainly what I ate during my 4days and 3nights in Melbourne city.

This post is a continuation to my last post, if you have not read it, here's a quick link to it. For the other parts of my 'major throwback' Melbourne-Uluru-Melbourne travelogue, you can find a list to all the other parts at the end of this post :3

Mandatory heads up to those reading: this is a throwback to 2017, so please only take this blog post as a rough guide as you'll probably need to cost in the inflation for the prices mentioned and some of the food I mentioned might not be on the menu anymore etc.

3D2N visit to the world's largest rock: Uluru/Ayers Rock

3 June 2019

Hello kawans! My one week semester break is coming to an end and I told myself that I would update my blog with another one of my long-forgotten-major-throwback-travel-posts so here it is! Now, to stop me from getting sidetracked, here's part-I-lost-count of my Australia trip from N years ago(ok, 2years lol)! Rather than splitting this post accordingly to the number of days like my usual 'DayX at Australia/DayXX at Australia' style, this post is a compilation of what I did for 3Days and 2 Nights in Uluru/Ayers Rock, Northern Territory Australia.

If you have been somewhat 'following' my Australia travel posts and you're pretty much lost now(thanks to me and my super slow updates, I'm sorry!), here's a quick recap! I visited 2 places in Australia back in winter 2017 - Melbourne & Uluru/Ayers Rock and my trip went like this: Melbourne>Uluru/Ayers Rock>Melbourne. This post is gonna be all about how I got to Ayers Rock from Melbourne + where I stayed/ate/did in Uluru/Ayers Rock etc so I hope you guys enjoy reading!

By the way, as this post is outdated and I'm only writing this so I could look back and reminisce my trip in the future, any prices mentioned in this post is most likely outdated. If you're planning a visit, please do your own research because my post can only be served as a rough guide haha.

To read my latest 'Australia travelogue' post before this, here's a quick link to it. For the rest of the posts in proper order, just scroll all the way down! :D

For this launch, A'Bloom has released 3 different types of products - beauty puffs in 2 different sizes, 4 sheet masks, and last but not least, a blackhead care product(?)

HKTDC DG Studio Showcase @ 1Utama Shopping Centre

6 March 2019

Hi kawanss! It's been awhile since my last blog update and it's been an even longer while since the last time I attended any events. But hey, I've finally crawled out of my little cave (for a few hours) to check out DG Studio's showcase of fun and quirky lifestyle products from Hong Kong - courtesy of HKTDC a.k.a Hong Kong Trade Development Council. Their job is to bring in products and services from Hong Kong to all over the world! So yes, other than TVB dramas, Hong Kong also has a number of homegrown brands carrying fun and innovative lifestyle products that may even come in handy if you're in the midst of gift shopping!

I'm not gonna dilly-dally any further, so if you're interested, do read on to see some of the cute and interesting products that caught my eye!

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask Review / Favourite Althea product?

10 January 2019

Hii kawans!! How's your 2019 so far? For today I wanted to squeeze some time out to share with you guys a product I've been really loving over the past month and it's the Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask. I believe that this product has been out for a few months now but I did want to give myself some time to properly test it out before I write my review on it. If you're interested to find out more on Althea's Milk Peel Cream Mask, do keep reading(and I really hope you do because this product is one of my personal favourites from 2018)!

Random collective shopping haul part 2 ver. Althea Korea

3 January 2019

Hey kawans! Happy new year! I actually forgot all about the part 2 of this haul sharing until I went through my photos folder yesterday! If you're a little lost, a while back cough last year cough I did a 'random collective haul' post(you can read it here) and because that post was getting a little lengthy, I decided to separate it into 2 parts, dedicating a 'collective haul post' listing all my collective Althea hauls that have yet to be shared with everyone.

Now before I hop into my haul, a quick disclaimer seemed necessary. A portion of this haul was purchased using a 'birthday ang pao' Althea gave me during my birthday month(yes, I know I'm sharing this many moons late! Please forgive me m(_ _)m!!) However the products I chose to purchase with my birthday shopping credits were entirely up to me so without any further ado, here's a list of products I've hauled from Althea and can't wait to play with!
