I have been hearing heaps of good review about HORIEN EYE SECRET contact lenses. Apparently, Horien Eye Secret is one of the top contact lens’ brand in Taiwan. Finally, get to try out this legendary lens! Here I am back with genuine review about these new found love. 38% 3 Months disposable Color Lens is a new series of lenses by HORIEN EYE SECRET. – Water Content: 38% ( keep the lens moisture & slowing down the water loss, perfect for long hour wearing) I am a real suckers for color contact lenses. In fact,…
I’ve been crazy busy! I am juggling multiple roles all at the same time.
No, don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. I actually like being busy.
This week, I had fun attending events, getting pampered by my amazing sponsors, pitching to potential clients & agencies, and many many more. I love being really productive.
However, one thing is missing; S L E E P.
It is indeed a busy, sleep-deprived week. It’s so bad that my skin got worst, I literally skipped all my skin care routine, including the very much needed – SUNBLOCK. All i want is that extra few precious minutes of “extra” sleep.
Not until I discovered the “ZA True White Ex Perfect Protector” that is made just right for all the busy ladies like us. It is a multi protector and water resistant sunscreen that cuts off 99% of UV while giving you the ultimate skin protection.
However, we have always neglected the sun screen due to our hectic schedule. We got to look all good in 5mins time, and we would always choose to dab on our usual make up base or anything else that make our skin look less tired & brighter after staying up the whole night.
& that’s when ZA True White Ex Perfect Protector with SPF50+ came into rescue, not only it offers a powerful protection against UV rays and pollution. The best part would be, it also serves as a make up base, that gave us a all day smudge-proof make up; at the same time giving our skin the much needed moisture.
If you are interested to get more sleep (like me), you need to try out this TRUE WHITE EX PERFECT PROTECTOR. Not only it saves time, it’s going to save your skin too! Get it now!

#8 Enjoy the Chef’s selection at Cucina Vivo, Jupiters Hotel & Casino
Address: Gold Coat Hwy & Hooker Blvd, Broadbeach QLD 4218, Australia
Opening Hours: Daily from 5.30pm; Lunch on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm
Cucina Vivo, is an Amalfi Coast inspired Italian restaurant, at Jupiters Casino, Gold Coast; which is also crowded as the best new restaurant on the Gold Coast. I absolutely love the contemporary white marble & gold themed design, coupled with oversized pendent light, very classy.
We were welcomed & greeted by the manager who has fabulous Italian accents. I really like him, he’s so friendly & attentive! The A+ services makes me love the place even before the food is served!
The whole restaurant is surrounding a open kitchen with a two metered long wood fired oven in the middle, with Jupiters’ own pizzaiolo cooking delicious pizzas. You can also opt for a sit at the balcony, enjoy the dazzling view of the newly renovated pool. (It was winter, so we chose to sit at the inside. :D)
The ladies, looking all gorgeous that night. We had a very “entertaining” conversation going on over the dinner (it all started with Vanessa asking about our fav. celebrity), we were chatting away as if we’d known each other for years. Cucina Vivo would be a perfect place to have fun lil conversation with a glass of wine.
Okay, F O O D now. We’ve heard Cucina Vivo’s service is good, but the food is better!
(p.s. – the chef, Entwine, has cooked for Obama.)
We were desperate to try it out! & lucky us didn’t have to crack our brain and think what to order, because we will be enjoying the Chef’s selection (basically the best of Cucina Vivo!)
THE BEST – Gamberoni Spadellati
Brandy flamed king prawns, garlic, chopped cherry tomatoes with Italian parsley.
The freshness of the king prawn is indescribable, it’s so DARN good! & the richly flavored sauce got me licking my fingers until all the sauce was gone after peeling the prawns! Oh yes, it is really that good!
Polpette al Sugo
Oven braised wagyu beef meatballs.
From top right to bottom left:
Petto di Pollo
Perfectly cooked chicken breast, complimented so well with the braised forest mushroom, charred figs.
Salmon Basso Cottura
Beautifully poached piece of salmon, coupled with tomato ragout, & asparagus insalata. Such simple salmon recipe, yet it’s unbelievably flavorful, and delicious! Well, is it just me or everything that cook with tomato ragout will always be good. :D
Sweet crab meat wrapped in Tortellini (ring-shaped pasta), ricotta and lemon zest on green pea puree. It didn’t looks too good to me, but I changed my mind after my first bite.
Cioccolato Rosso Ferrari
This is their signature dessert, their best sweet. Ferrari red chocolate sphere, filled with pistachio crostata, & stracciatella ice cream; with grappa infused chocolate sauce overflowing on the top.
You got to cracked the sphere to have a taste of the hidden gem in it. They say it’s a little too sweet, but I think it’s perfectly fine for me! I love it, & would happily go back for this!
#9 Morning Coffee at Bumbles Cafe, Budds Beach
Though the breakfast is QT is amazingly good, but Vanessa thought we should try something else this time. We took a 10mins walk to Bumbles Cafe, located at river drive, Budds Beach.
“Bumbles cafe is many things to many people.”
Looking at the interior, you would have guessed that BUMBLES has got alot to tell.
There’s 4 beautifully reno rooms, with different themes which is equally vibrant & interesting. The interior made me felt like home; how it is surrounded by fresh flowers, comfy pillows, & story telling polaroids.

#WHERE TO STAY? – QT HOTEL GOLD COAST
Address: 7 Staghorn Ave, Gold Coast QLD 4217, Australia
Phone: +61 7 5584 1200
Upon arrival, we were welcome by the gorgeous concierge ladies with bright smiles and refreshing iced lemonade! That instantly makes me feel better after my overnight flight! The hotel is so quirky, I am very much amazed by the beautiful artistic and bold decoration of the hotel lobby! New, modern, & all the good vibes!
My room, with stunning Surfers Paradise view.
The room is very fresh, clean, and functional. There’s a private balcony, flat screen HD TV, bathroom (w/ bath tube), fantastic amenities, iPod dock, mini bar and funky decor. The hotel is thoughtful enough to provide complimentary internet, which is fast & reliable!
The bed, is definitely my favorite of all!
It’s HUGE, a little bouncy and squishy with clean sheets. Oh, and the fluffy pillows too!
So comfortable that I don’t even feel like going out!
If you are going to Gold Coast, you should stay with them! :D. Okay, it might seem that I raved too much about this hotel. But, believe me it is perfect for what it is, and I believe you will love it as much as I do!
1) Get adventurous – Conquer the SKYPOINT Climb
Q1 Resort & Spa
Address: 9 Hamilton AvE, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217
Day climb: $69 for adults. $49 for children up to 15yrs.
Twilight Climb: $89 for adults. $69 for children.
Took the super fast elevator ride that took us up to 77th floor’s Skypoint viewing deck in about 42.7 seconds. Up here you are rewarded with the breath-taking uninterrupted 360 degree panoramic view of the Gold Coast, from the highest point of the tallest residential tower in the Southern Hemisphere.
Lunch before the climb, at Seventy7 Cafe & Bar.
Done with lunch, ready to look for a thrill!
Moment of pride: I face my fear, & brave myself for this monstrous climb!
To be honest, I was really hesitating if I should proceed with the climb as I fear of heights.
But they told me, “you wouldn’t want to say you have been to GoldCoast without this climb, it’s a one in a life time experience.” & The instructor further assured us our specially designed full body harness could actually hold the weight of a few buses. Then, we were given proper instructions and briefed on the safety precautions. It indeed sounded really safe!
“Okay, I will give it a try! I wish I do not faint half way through.” I quietly whispered to myself.
I regretted once I stepped out of the building (it’s 77th floor!), but I am grateful for our climb leader who is so experienced & friendly. He said, “I have a 90yo man came for this climb last week, and he’s coming back again.” He assured us again on how safe the climb is, and that we do not need to be worried as there are enough safety measures in place.
A few more steps later, I surprisingly became less tensed and instead felt very secured as I got used to it. It’s pretty unbelievable! I was soaked in the gorgeous views, while we were introduced to the city’s landmark along the journey. I don’t even want to leave!
I guess I finally understand what does it mean by feeling “ON TOP OF THE WORLD”, it’s amazing. Standing 260ft above sea level, enjoying the panoramic view of Surfers Paradise as far as eyes can see is indeed a once in a life time experience. I am so glad that I made it up there.
2) Saturday Night Street Food at The Miami Marketta
Address: 23, Hillcrest Parade, Miami
“Every Saturday from 4pm-10pm, The Rabbit & Cocoon Arts Precinct play host to 25 street food stalls – serving up everything from Spanish, Italian, French & Thai cuisine – as well as boutique local wine & beer, a dessert hall & live music!”
The colorful hipster-ish setting caught my attention immediately! Every spot is insta-worthy. But I didn’t have time for photos, because I was too excited to explore the FOOD STALLS! Everything here looks really good, not an easy task to choose what to eat.
All the great tasting food stalls!
Some of my favorite:
#1 The Hungry Hungarian
– cheese & lemon sauce classic lángos! This is absolutely the bomb! Crispy, chewy & flavorful! It’s like a more chewy version of donuts with cheese & lemon sauce topping! So simple yet so good, I am missing it already! T.T
(I was too busy gobbling, & totally forgotten to take a photo of it. Anyhoo, you’re welcome to google it – “classic lángos”)
Food, is our best friend. Good food makes us happy.
3) Glorious Breakfast at Bazaar, QT Hotel
The night before, we were told by DEE from the Tourism of Queensland that the breakfast buffet at Bazaar, QT Hotel is unbeatable; We will not want to missed it!
In the morning, we were greeted by the friendly stuff, and instantly amazed with “WOW” the moment we stepped in, I have never seen any breakfast that look as good before! Complete hands down to the best breakfast buffet I have ever been. This place is like a magical bazaar that you can get almost everything you wish to have!
& damm, those overnight muesli with yogurt in jars!
It definitely didn’t just end there, if you like hot food, there will be a chef working at the live food stations to satisfy you crave for the bacons, eggs (poached, scrambled, benedicy just as you like them), smoky grilled bacon, etc.
4) Stretch yourself on the Beach
Took a stroll from QT Hotel to the Esplanade, we are going to do Yoga on the beach, as a nod to International Yoga Day 2015.
Private outdoor yoga class with Michelle Merrified, from Essence Living on the grassland.
It’s there any better way to start your day with rejuvenating beach front yoga? I doubt so.
Void the daily noise, and meditating to the sound of the waves. Stretching and breathing never felt so good, life is almost perfect this moment!
My beautiful Yoga instructor who even does head & foot massage for us at the end of the class.
I would definitely miss this wonderful session with her!
Good thing is, we can practice anytime anywhere now with Michelle Merrified on YouTube. Check it out! :D
Oh, I finally learn how to plank correctly!
Check out this video to watch our planking challenge.
5) Shop at the Goldcoast Best Boutique Market, The Village Market (TVM)
Address: Burleigh Heads State School, Lower Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads.
Hit the arts & craft markets, The Village Markets, which is the original & best boutique creative market on the Gold Coast, showcasing up to 100 fashion, arts & creative stalls as well as love local music, & delicious gourmet food!
“Founded in October 2008, the aim of TVM is to create a platform for talented emerging designers, creatives and vintage collectors to showcase their wares, as well as providing a much needed regular cultural event for the region.”
TVM now firmly marked as a #MUSTGO market. For the local’s, this is their secret market, where they get their treasure hunt fixed! Aside of the dainty jewelry, and hipster fashion pieces that this market has to offer, we are very much in love with the atmosphere & community. The whole place is filled with funky fashionista!
6) Eat at Commune Cafe – Everyone says they have the best breakfast menu
The hidden gem – Commune Cafe
Address: 1844, Gold Coast Hwy, Burleigh Heads, QLD
Phone: +60 7 5520 3377
This cafe is run by locals who have a passion for environment (they even have environmentally friendly tips written all over the restaurant) & local artist. Serving an all-day breakfast menu incorporating fresh organic ingredients! Health game strong!
I had my usual Eggs Bene with Salmon on crusty bread.
7) Take a Stroll at Burleigh Heads Gold Coast
Surfers Paradise is a tourist spot, where Burleigh Heads is more of a local spot. It is as beautiful as the Surfers Paradise, but quieter conditions, parklands with walking paths, and shaded picnic areas. It is also an ideal spot for swimming or surfing as it is fully patrolled all year around.
To be continue…
Disclaimer: I traveled to Gold Coast as a guest of The Queensland Tourism Board with complimentary air tickets and hotel accommodation. No monetary benefits are involved.
I am very excited to share with you on what I’ve learned from the H2O+ Beauty & Skincare Workshop recently a few Saturdays ago! I have heard a lot of positive reviews about H2O+ but never had a chance to know more about their products. Really thankful for this opportunity, big thanks to Nuffnang for this awesome arrangement.
Highlight of the day, was the Oasis Sea Foam collection, it is powered by pure water infused with H2O+ Hydrating Marine Blend. This is an oil-free collection that helps to replenish skin and protects it from moisture loss through a fast- action foam.
When we first arrived, we were greeted by the friendly staff from H2O+, where they later on use a skin moisture device to measure moisture and hydration level of our skin.
0-29 – Severely Dehydrated
30-40 – Dehydrated
40 & above – Ideal Moisture Level.
We are so lucky to have international speaker, Ms. Denise Gorant, H2O+ International Trainer to educate us on why moisturizing matters. As much as you wouldn’t go a day without drinking water, you shouldn’t go a day without hydrating your skin.
My definition of good skin: smooth, translucent, and fresh-looking.
She further on share with us on how H2O+ Oasis Sea Foam hydrates, nourish, and protects our skin at the H2O+ Beauty & Skincare Workshop.
The Face Oasis Sea Foam Collection has a high-speed foaming hydration effects that helps to improve skin’s water retention. The increased moisture also helps to plumps fine lines caused by dehydration.
Here’s the 3 simple steps to healthy & hydrated skin:
Step 1. Face Oasis Sea Foam Cleanser
Step 2. Face Oasis Sea Foam Toner
Foam formula rapidly melts on contact to prepare skin for maximum moisture absorption.
Hydrating marine blend rapidly replenishes depleted skin with a surge of moisture.
Step 3. Face Oasis Sea Foam Moisturizer
Well. Moisturizer. I’ve always had acne-prone skin, hence, I am very particular about my moisturizer. I need something that gives me enough moisture to make my skin feel quenched but without the oil to prevent unnecessary breakouts.
After cleansing and toning skin, dispense foam into palm and apply to face. I applied it on my hand instead, and massage into skin. Remember, though it looks very foamy, Do Not rinse!
The light-as-air foam based toner intensely hydrates through fast-action.
It’s so refreshing, & is not greasy at all! I am in love!
Tadahhhh, introducing the Oasis 24™ Hydrating Booster.
You can wear this under your daily make up routine, while keeping your skin moisturized all day! My #annoyingbff, Adele, loves this!
I would really love to give this a try as it’s proven to be very effective in overcoming the dryness and flakiness, & help makeup goes on smoothly. If you know me personally, you will know I need this more than anyone else! This would be an amazing life saver!
Last but not least, the Total Source UV Defense Fluid SPF 50 PA+++
A lot of us didn’t like sunblock (though knowing how important it is) because we hated how greasy and sticky it is. But, this is diff, it supplies maximum protection from damaging UVA/UVB rays (especially in country like M’sia) while still feeling water-light on the skin.
H2O+ is always known as the “sea expert”.
To prove that the H2O+ Oasis Sea Foam Collection really does hydrates, nourish, and protects our skin, I did the skin moisture test again. & from 30, it increased to 40. Fwahh, I am amazed by the instant boost of moisture! Now you know you should give it a try! :D
The workshops are fully hands-on, with focus on educating us on the importance of keeping your skin moisturized, without having to commit unnecessary time to facial.
After the beauty workshop, I was given the opportunity to have a 1-on-1 session with Denise Gorant.
I asked her about my main concern; would this range of extremely hydrating product cause break out on my face? & I learned that our skin will react on a new skin care which might causes breakouts, they will need an adjustment period while flushing out the impurities in your skin (sometimes, it might be pimples popping out). But it’s fine, give it two weeks’ time, & it will be all good.
H2O+ products are all water based, & oil free. Hence, there’s no worries that it will be greasy, uncomfortable and causing more pimples.
Overall, I enjoy this beauty workshop a lot!
Received a series of product samples from the work shop.
Here are all the samples and door gift that I was given during the event.
Introducing the H2O+ Hero Product – Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment.
I have to say this product is H2O+ best seller for a reason. First of all, it is suitable to all skin type – which means that I don’t have to worry too much on the suitability of the product to my skin. While this oil-free gel moisture provide deep hydration to my skin, it also helps in smoothen out the fine line. Best part is, you can use it as your face mask and it works like a charm! I can really tell the difference because my makeup stay for the longest time ever after I tried this product!
Night Oasis™ Overnight Eye Complex.
I often stay up till late nights, & this eye cream hydrates my eyes without the oiliness, and effectively reduces the puffiness & fine lines around my eyes. I have to admit, I am very much amazed. Good job!
Lips Oasis™ Lip Mender.
That’s all for today!
I’m on aligner #9 (5th month) and have 12 more aligners to go.
Anyhoo, I am back with my INVISALIGN updates.
The biggest difference now would be I finally manage to smile more naturally with my aligner on.
The best thing about Invisalign is that it’s almost invisible.
My friends (who didn’t see me for the longest time ever/ not following me on social media) did not realize that I am wearing my aligner, until when I brush my teeth after meals & when they see me putting it on. Haha. Hence, I have no issue wearing it all day, even to attend events.
Visited Q&M Dental last week, to collect my new sets of aligners & to check on my progress.
I am actually pretty surprised on the amount of inquiries I got about my invisalign, & which dental do I visit for my treatment. Didn’t know, just like me, a straight set of teeth is a dream to so many of you.
Here’s the details of the dental I go to:
Q&M Dental Group
K-01-13, 2, Jalan Solaris, Solaris Mont Kiara,
50480 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Hello, Dr Dennis!
I really like him! I had such a great experience here Dr. Dennis. Dr. Dennis would patiently answer all my questions & doubts. Put my invisalign treatment aside, Dr Dennis took extra care on my cavity! He would clean and polish my teeth everytime I go to see him. I could not be happier with my dentist.
Here’s a good deal for you!
FREE CONSULTATION for the first 30 callers to call and and make appt.
& an INSTANT DISCOUNT OF RM2,000 for the invisalign treatment.
That’s all for now! ❤
Dear coffee, I love you.❤
I can never resist this delicious & comforting beverage.
It’s addictive. Put it that way, I can barely survive a day without coffee.
If you love coffee as much as I do, you would surely wish & love to be able to drink it anytime anywhere. But fact is, it’s pretty hard to find a good cup of coffee.
Then, I discovered NESCAFÉ Blend & Brew recently. It caught my attention when my little sister was sipping on this cup of aromatic coffee, the smell and its distinct taste attracted me.
Here’s some reasons to love your 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day.
1) Coffee improves your energy levels.
I started waking up early because I realize early mornings demand a greater intake of coffee. Drinking coffee in the morning (1-2 hours after I woke up) gives me that much needed wake me up, it gives me a good heaping supply of caffeine to get me going, to strive through the day. I would literally pry myself out of bed each morning, for C O F F E E.
2) Coffee helps you lose weight.
Caffeine is a natural substance that can help with weight loss. The caffeine in coffee is a stimulant and makes a person more active, therefore encouraging weight loss.
My diet always fail as I would constantly feel hungry, and couldn’t stop snacking. Coffee also helps by suppressing cravings and hunger pangs. I tend to feel less hungry when I drink coffee. A cup of brewed coffee also represents a contribution of up to 1.8 grams of fiber, this means you can digest better, & have less bloated tummy! It works well on me, I go to toilet fairly frequent! Haha.
3) Coffee can improve your skin.
I recently found out that caffeine can also be found in your make up? Interesting fact, right?! Cosmetic companies are now incorporating caffeine in their range of skincare products as it has been proven that it results in even-toned and smooth skin.
4) Coffee is good to boost memory & concentration
Caffeine appears to affect the particular areas of the brain responsible for memory and concentration, providing a boost memory. A study published this year from Johns Hopkins University found that caffeine enhances memory up to 24 hours after it’s consumed.
Coffee can also make you by smarter by keeping us alert. With the right level of caffeine, the brain will be stimulated and promotes the state of alertness which helps develops thinking and dexterity. It also improves concentration, relieves pressure and calms the mind.
The Rich NESCAFÉ Blend & Brew is definitely my favourite.
It serves up a deliciously strong and full-bodied coffee, topped with smooth luscious foam. Perfectly blended and brewed, this double strength café-style coffee with milk gives a rich and flavourful experience; perfect for those who are looking for that ‘coffee kick’.
NESCAFÉ has embarked on a mission to bring innovation to coffee technology. The result is the all-new, all-different NESCAFÉ Blend & Brew. This new coffee mix range is produced with One Step Technology – an intricate infusion of coffee extract with liquid creamer and lastly milk from New Zealand.
You will notice the difference from other coffee mixes once you see its gold-colored and silk-like texture. The addition of milk in the ingredient helps provide a good balance of coffeeness, creating a smooth after taste.
The mild version truly makes an unforgettably milky light-roasted coffee that is topped with a layer of smooth foam. Perfectly blended and brewed, this café-style coffee is sure to please those who enjoy a lighter cup just like me!
With NESCAFÉ Blend & Brew, making a good cup of rich creamy coffee at home is no longer a complicated thing. I am now enjoying the simple pleasure of drinking this hot mug of NESCAFÉ Blend & Brew, while working on this post. Life is good when there’s coffee, quality coffee I mean. Haha.
You can find out more about the NESCAFÉ Blend & Brew’s updates on their homepage.
& do check out the NESCAFÉ Facebook page, and YouTube page to watch how NESCAFÉ Blend & Brew coffee experience impressed Penny, she said it tastes better than any 3-in-1 she have ever tasted. It’s just like the café coffee. Lovely!
My day #StartwithNESCAFÉ #BlendandBrew. & it’s superb!
How about you?
❤ ❤ ❤
I am getting all heated up, and feeling very heaty. Heatiness, is not HOT. Heaty is what the Chinese call 熱氣 “re-qi “which is translated as “heatiness” which is a term widely used exclusively by Malaysian and Singaporean Chinese.
What contributes to HEATINESS?
It can be food- or weather-related. The blazing hot sun is one thing, the other will be the extremely “Heaty” yet irresistible Malaysia food! Food that is typically known as “heaty” will include fried food, food high in fat content and certain fruits such as Durian.
Food I know I shouldn’t be eating too much, but I am loving it & I just can’t stop:
Eating spicy food. Although this may be the last thing you fancy in hot weather, BUT it’s resistible. Would you say no to this bowl of extremely delicious super spicy chili pan mee or a hot plate of nasi lemak ayam goreng with a lot of sambal. Er, I won’t.
Hence, the body heat.
I live to EAT. I can’t stop eating all these (even under the hot weather);
But I hate the after effects of over-heated (getting all sorts of nonsense from constipation, mouth ulcers, and tickle in throat, nose bleed, chapped lips, to the eyes pimples). It’s torturing.
So, how to cool down?
Traditionally, other than downing me with the plain tasteless water; my mom will cooked me Barley water, or the extremely bitter herbal tea (she always say the more bitter it is, the more cooling it will be, ugh).
Well, if you didn’t want to get all tipsy in the afternoon with beer, or getting all bitter with the herbal tea and bitter gourd. You can opt for the NEW MAMEE COOL TEA. (now, that makes life so much easier huh).
Cool Tea is a new Mamee Beverage that has 8 different herbal extracts – liquorice root, lotus leaf, honeysuckle and chrysanthemum flower, selfheal, grosvenor momordica fruit, mulberry leaf and mesona chinensis to help cool down the body.
Cool Tea basically helps for keeping yourself cool during the hot weather and Cool Tea’s ability to combat spicy and heaty food (so now eating nasilemak, chili pan mee, fries or even durian is no longer an issue! Hooray!).
Always, in order to strike a cooling-heatiness balance in the diet, it’s a for sure for us, to have a glass of a cooling drink to go with a plate of heaty food!
Cheers to Cool Tea.
