Hello, lovelies. 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…
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. ♡
McDowell’s No. 1 is also known as “The No.1 spirit of friendship“, strives to bring friends together. The brand makes the beautiful moments spent with friends even more special with a pocket friendly price, premium quality whisky.
With our best friends, that have literally been through the thick & thin with us.
James & Darel.
Its the friends that you can call up on 3am that matter. James always call himself my personal uber because he’s there to fetch me around, whenever I need, whenever he can; even on 3am! Thank you for being such a great friend to me!
Free flow of McDowell’s No. 1 whisky, breathtaking roof-top night view, good music, and awesome companions;

Joey G, shared some of his happiest moments with his old friends.
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!
I am often known as a coffee drinker. Haven’t really developed the tea-drinking habit.
But many of my friends around me have started to appreciate TEA. & I thought, I should give it a try too.
Honestly, I was initially quite skeptical towards this kind of detox tea. I was thinking if it’s just another gimmicks to attracts more customers. Still, decided to give it a try as I have been feeling very bloated & sluggish for the past 1-2 weeks, where my tummy is feeling all puffy and uncomfortable. T.T
What you get:
– 14 days supply of Morningtime Detox tea bags, one tea bag every morning.
– 7 days supply of Bedtime Cleanse tea bags, one tea bag on the second night starting from Day 1.
For more information, you can go to their ‘How To Use’ page to explore what is in the tea bags and its benefits and effects.
I have been drinking for a week.
The Bedtime Cleanse produces a laxative effect to naturally cleanse and detoxify your body, approximately 8 hours after usage. I do feel discomfort in my tummy, & was literally running up and down the toilets for the first 2 satchels (which i think it’s good). Later on, it got better, & I really feel healthier. It sure feel good to continually discover the benefits of tea.
Another good thing I like about Cuppatea is that they believes that weight loss should not involve diet or starvation. Beauty and weight loss could be achieved by living a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
You can check out their Eating Healthy Plan to start a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
A variety of selection has been put together and they mainly consist of fruits, vegetables and fish.
Other benefits of Teatox:
Burn fat and prevent fat storage
Transformation of energy to burn calories
Improve skin health
Improve sleep quality
Would you like to call for a cuppa tea?

p.s. – All the ingredients in Cuppatea Teatox are 100% natural, no chemical or preservatives and bacteria- free.
So, it’s Jordan’s birthday.
He’s a guy who treasures friendship a lot. Lets just say instead of celebrating his birthday, it’s more like celebrating the friendship on his birthday. & I must attribute the success of this birthday dinner to all our friends. I know this wouldn’t happen without any of you.
His bros. Thank you so much, all of you.
For being there for us, all the time.
The Lim’s sister.
So yea, I sure have been wrecking my brain on where to dine on his birthday. After a lot of research, I decided to go to The Soprano’s – Italian-German Restaurant @ Newcom Building, Old Klang Road.
When Jordan saw “Grimbergen” while flipping through the menu, he was like.. “Dear, dear, they have grimbergen!!” Followed by a big wide smile. (chose a German’s retaurant in purpose, because I know that’ll put an irresistible smile on his face, & that’s my ultimate goal; So long he is happy.)
Half moon pizza/calzone.
I couldn’t remember the name of this.
To be honest, it was their kitchen-made fresh pasta that first attracted me.
We ordered Carbonara. The spaghetti is very tender, while the sauce is rich & satisfying!
The spaghetti in bag. Linguine al Cartoccio – pasta with mixed seafood (mussels, scallops, prawns, plus fish, calamari & clams), sauteed again in a cherry tomato sauce.
When the bag is opened on the table, the hot steam immediately poured out.
I would say this is the best I had that night. It looks extremely good, & the taste too didn’t fall short in term of quality. The combination of the sweetness & freshness of the seafood, and the richness of tomato sauce gave it a great depht of flavor. I was astonished at the flavor.
Spectacular and delicious, I would definitely be back for this.
Baby Rippen, baby pork ribs flooded with a sweet bbq-maple glaze, alongside pan-fried potatoes, red cabbage and coleslaw. For this, nothing amazingly good to shout about. It is very ordinary.
So, this is the BIG-WIDE-SMILE. haha.
My wish for you on your birthday is that you are, and will always be, happy and healthy!
The birthday boy, & his SQUIDWARD birthday cake.
I am brought up in a family, where my dad and mom have never missed any of our birthday. For the past twenty over years, my parents have been putting in countless effort every year to celebrate our birthday, to remind us on how much we’ve grown. & us siblings, we can’t be anymore grateful.
Hence, I always think birthdays are worth celebrating. It is a day where we show & receive extra loves, doing more than what we usually do to celebrate the existence of an individual who meant so much to us. As we grown older, the busy schedule has completely took over us. But on birthday, we will need to squeeze out time & go extra miles to do something special for the one you love. (hello, it’s only once a year!)
Birthday, to me, it’s about Gratitude. It is the day, we celebrate & acknowledge the existence of the person whom we love in our life, & for everything they’ve done for us.
How about you?
What does birthday mean to you?
