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.
May; life has been cruelly hectic for me.
I hardly have time to catch a breathe; & struggling really hard to find time for my friends.
God probably heard my prayers, & gave me an opportunity to bring my friends together.
So, it’s McDowell No.1 Friendship Nights @ Malt & Leaf, The Roof.
I’m really glad that I was invited to this event, dedicated to celebrate friendship. How LUCKY. ♡

Free flow of McDowell’s No. 1 whisky, breathtaking roof-top night view, good music, and awesome companions;

I didn’t manage to take a lot of photo that night because I was too busy catching up with my friends. But overall, it was a good night. Big thanks to McDowell No.1 for organizing this!
Everything is better when you are with your best friends, & a glass of McDowell No.1.
That’s all for today!
Was scrolling through my Facebook earlier & found this post on how us girls experienced frustration in trying to find a perfect bra. & I was like, “oh my! this is exactly how difficult it is for us to find a perfect bra! I am so gonna share this!”
So, here are some of the common problems with wrong bra size:
- Bra cups too small (when the band actually fits well)
- B A C K F A T S - most of the time it’s fats that you didn’t know you have
- Ugly straps (say byebye to low/bare back dresses)
- A R M P I T F A T S (a.k.a. side boobs, ugh, so ugly)
- Always out of bigger sizes (especially for those chio bras that you like)
&, You will be surprised that..
“8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size”
Good news is, LaSenza is able to help out on most of the above frustrations. We need to know that selecting a bra is about more than finding the “chio-est” bra, you got to take comfort & health into account too.
Last weekend, I was given the opportunity to attend the La Senza’s Exclusive Bra Fit Workshop! It is a closed-door event that was only made available to the La Senza Presige VIP member, 12 of my readers!
Together with La Senza’s South-East Asia Market Manager, Mr. Matthew Gregg.
La Senza Purpose.
Have you ever experience this?
If you do, your bra obviously doesn’t fits well.
Does your bra band ride up in the back?
- Your band is probably too large. It should fits firmly across your back.
Does your bust fall sides instead of being in its central position?
- Go for something seamed. The ‘side sling’, is great for helping guide your breasts in position.
Do your bra straps causing red marks on your shoulder?
- You need to go down a band size. It’s a sign that the straps are doing too much of the work for you.
Do your strapless bra slide down unless you’re constantly adjusting them?
- You need to go down a band size.
- If you have big bust, use the transparent straps.
Do your breasts bulge over the top/side of the cup in a double bump (that deadly quadra-boobs or side boobs, erh)?
- You should probably go up a cup size
Shopping starts after the workshop!
All of us just couldn’t wait to get our self a perfectly-fitted bra.
My best friends (MelissaT’ng, Rachel, & #annoyingbff Adele). They loves LaSenza. They immediately joined the contest to participate in this workshop after I posted it up on my instagram. Efficient! Hahaha.
The heaven of undergarments, you will be spoilt for choice!
I was introduced to this lady, they told me she knew best because she had the many years of experience feeling up boobs. Haha, well.
I told her I prefer, something simple, plain with less padding and comfortable.
“Looking at your bust & waist size, I already have few bras in mind that will flatter your figures perfectly,” she responded with “that” grins. haha.
Before I go into fitting, she even taught me what’s the right way to put on a bra, to get it fits your breasts properly!
Putting on a Bra “The Right Way”:
– Wear on the bra straps
– Lean forward, & let your breasts fall into the cups
– Hook the bra (while leaning forward)
It is true that, bras can make or break an outfit. The right undergarment has the power to give us spell-binding confidence, while the bad bra can spoil the most beautiful dress.
I am trying out this one from the Beyong-sexy series. & fell in love instantly.
It has a gel push-up for the most natural-looking lift & intense cleavage.
Hello lovelies, I just discovered a really wacky programme online (I can’t wait to share it with you guys!) Well, before that, I proudly announce that I am now one of the alumni members of the Whyte Academy!!
So, what is The Whyte Academy?
It is an “academy” established by the founder, Wayne Whyte – an accomplished narcissist (comparable to the likes of Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, etc.) – to help people become as good as he is. He’s been featured as a key personality in huge publications such as TYME magazine, PHORBES magazine, ENQUIRE magazine, KLEO magazine (no, not typos); he was even the first human to summit Mt Everest in a singlet. (yes, singlet!)
His secret? A winning Smile, and Darlie EXPERT WHITE.
Wayne explains it all in the Whyte Academy’s Introduction Video.
I have participated in the following programmes:
The result! What kind of an Instagrammer do people see you as?
My friends called me the INSTA-ADDICT, a socialpath, which I didn’t quite agree.
& this assessment just proved that I am “SOCIALLY BALANCED”. Take that! Haha.
And nope; this is not only a single question test – the question above is just one of the questions and I have gone through a series of them; and I am certainly a certified Socially Balanced individual hahahha!
Take the test now, see if you are a social sociopath or socially cold; or you are like me, SOCIALLY BALANCED! Be ready to receive honest analyses on your social standing and receive recommendations for improvement. You won’t regret it!
1st test – TO SMILE OR NOT TO SMILE
Here are a series of social situations. Pick your response.
Then, the “Go Dental Bootcamp”, by Sergeant Grills , the drill sergeant.
“it is a test, designed to bend you, then break you. At the end of it, you’ll emerge thankful, feeling reborn, and most importantly, have teeth whiter than the freshest snow on the himalayas.”
This assessment is to test your knowledge on how polite you are – are you a gentleperson or a peasant, when it comes to etiquette?
With that, I graduated, & officially the alumni of The Whyte Academy.
I have to say this is by far the most entertaining yet very educating programme I took.
What did I learn?
There’s no fault in SELFIE/any social posting, moderation is the key.
– No matter what, you just have to SMILE. & everything will eventually get better.
– You want to look good? You got to work God damn hard for it. Nothing comes easy yo!
– You do not wear a bowtie topless. Haha.
A big thank you to the one and only Wayne Whyte, for being who he is! Thank you for the ass-kicking academy programmes, which have taught us well on how to be a better person.
You got to really try this out, check out the programmes I mentioned in this post, and find out who you really are. You will definitely love The Wayne Whyte academy as much as I do! Visit www.whyte-academy.com to try the programmes out! =D
*Kindly note that the Whyte Academy is a fictional site, and the content that we are producing is supposed to be quirky and not taken seriously. So do have fun with it!
