Unboxing Lazada Surprise Box!

I got a big box dropped on my doorstep few days ago! It's the Lazada Surprise Box in conjunction with their 5th anniversary! Scroll down to watch my unboxing video! 

Didn't realised Lazada has been in Malaysia for 5 years, time flies when we are busy shopping right? Lazada as the Southeast Asia’s leading online shopping will bring us a surprise birthday sale from today 22-24 March 2017 at http://www.lazada.com.my/birthday-sale/

Shopping makes me feel happy & accomplished...but with the increase of inflation rate every year and GST charges implementation, I have choose to shop wisely. I would prefer to shop online simply for 3 reasons

1. Better Price & More Varieties of Brands : Shopping online allow me to make price comparison easily. My tip is to look out for sellers that offer special bundle deal

2.Convenient & More Saving : I can do it anytime of the day with fast and reliable delivery to your home or office. Save my petrol, toll & parking!

3. Less compulsive purchase : Usually I put a lot items in the shopping cart when I was browsing online shopping sites, but only a number of things I went ahead to purchase after have a good think about it. Often times when I'm out shopping, I end up buying things compulsively...  that I don't really.
Thanks to Lazada team for spreading the joy by sending me a Surprise Birthday Box with curated contents just for me <3 These items will be on sale too during this Birthday Sale!

First time doing un-box video, pardon me because I can't contain my happiness <3

Cooking class with Amy Beh using Philips AirFryer TurboStar

 
I always wanted to own a AirFryer and was glad to attend Chef Amy Beh cooking class where she whip Up Some Chinese New Year Delights with the latest Philips Airfryer TurboStar which is the latest in the Philips range of airfryers.

Philips Airfryer TurboStar features a more compact design without compromising on capacity, the latest addition to the Philips Airfryer range continues to offer great tasting fried food cooked with up to 80% less fat. Not only is the new Philips Airfryer space-saving, but it is also time-saving as pre-heating is no longer needed. It comes equipped with Philips TurboStar technology that enables users to fry with little or no oil and produce food that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The TurboStar technology also cooks fried food 50% more evenly and faster with no turning needed. 

In conjunction with Chinese New Year, Philips has released a limited edition red Philips Airfryer (HD9623/31) to liven up the kitchen with the festive colour. So ONG right!!! I really love this red colour! 

Philips invited a few of us to a CNY cooking workshop organised by Feminine magazine for the readers. So they kinda extended the invite to us.

Well the only reason I agreed to go is because I want to learn cooking from Amy Beh, been seeing her cooking shows on TV since I was young...so kinda excited to see her!

So she will be showing cooking demo using Philips Airfryer TurboStar.

Valentine's around the corner! Have you got anything for your loved one...be it your parents, siblings, best friend or your partner? Well why not get something for yourself this Valentine, after all we need to learn to love ourselves before loving others. 

Well the reasoning is pretty simple our ideal partner is a reflection of us. We will attract people that are like us. Not just in terms of romantic, sexual/physical attraction but through metaphysically - these people tend to turn up in our lives. Plus healthy relationships occur between two people who are comfortable with themselves (i.e knowing how to love themselves), in addition to one another.

Secrets how to keep skin healthy and glowing during my winter holiday in Harbin.

Hey everyone! There is another few days before Happy Chinese New Year ends. Gong xi gong xi hope you are blessed with abundance of wealth, health and happiness.

Sorry been missing from my blog for a while as I just got back from travelling weeks just before CNY not long ago. I finally managed to visit the famous Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in Harbin, China. 

If you read before, Harbin temperature during winter season is really harsh and it is about -18 to -20 Celsius during the day time ande temperature dropped below -30 Celsius and more at night. And during my last year backpacker trip to Hokkaido, the winter was below -10 Celsius already quite unbearable where my skin & lips was peeling.

Knowing that CNY is just around after I'm back from Harbin, I knew my skin cannot take risk... cause want to look pretty pretty during CNY ma :) Hence finding the right skincare range to use in winter is really important as your skin is exposed to extreme coldness and dryness . You want to avoid at all cost skin from becoming very dry, peeling, cracking and bleeding especially on your face area. 

 I'm glad to tell you that I found the right skincare not only to suitable to use in Malaysia summer season but in Harbin winter season! Kid you not...not only my skin survive -30 Celsius but it was behaving really well during my trip and I wanted to share you in details! 

This is my winter skincare regime & in fact I continue using when I'm back in Malaysia. So basically this Jurlique skincare range that are able to hydrate & protect my skin from summer to winter :)

Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser (RM150/200ml)

A soothing foaming cleanser for sensitive skin that lifts away surface impurities to leave the complexion fresh and clean. It helps to re-balance skin's sensitivity, hydrate and dryness leaving skin clean and comfortable. This is suitable for people with sensitive skin.

I can smell calming lavendar scent when you lather up the cleanser with water. It's a milky foam that gently cleans my skin leaving it soft and hydrated. 

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist (RM147/100ml)

This can work as a hydrating mist and toner. It's suitable for normal to combination skin that able to restore and hydrates the complexion. 

This is one of my favourite product from Jurlique because it has my favourite  rose scent that is very lovely. Plus my skin immediately feel soft & supple after few spray on the skin, I would recommend you to warm your palm before pat the product into the skin for better absorption. For convenient, I pour some into my travel size container and carry them around handbag so that I can use to refresh my face anytime I want. This also can work as makeup setting spray.

Jurlique Activating Water Essence (150ml/RM265)

This works like a pre-essence product where we need to apply after tone before serum. This product will prepare the skin to fully absorb the benefits of your serum and moisturiser. Pour a few drops into the palm of your hand and warm and gently press over your face, neck and decolletage for better absorption. Interestingly this product key ingredient is marshmallow root as it would be able to provide intensive hydrating, softening and balancing properties to our skin. 

Love how it has really light herbal botanical scent with notes of lavender, geranium, and sandalwood. Lovely combination of scent! The texture of this product is like water but it works magically to make my skin feel soft and hydrated preparing my skin for next step. 

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum (30ml/RM288 or 100ml/RM592)

This is youth defence serum that promise to help reduce the appearance of first sign of aging i.e fine lines, improve elasticity, restore radiance and increase hydration whilst protecting the skin from environmental aggressors. 

Key Ingredients: 

- Wu-Zhu-Yu (Evodia Rutaecarpa) : Improve micro-circulation within epidermis.

- Peach Leaf Extract : Contributes to the skin’s capacity to protect itself against future environmental damage. 

This serum is a savior as it keeps my skin not only hydrated by glowing under -30 Celsius weather! I just use 1-2 pumps onto fingertips and press gently over face, neck and decolletage and the gel serum immediately absorb into my skin nincely. I love the floral scent and how the serum does a great job keeping my skin hydrated and comfortable in Harbin although the air is dry and cold. It leaves my skin visibly glowing, hydrated and keeping my fine lines at bay. Absolute love this product and I'm highly recommending this! 

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Face Oil (RM241/50ml)

This treatment oil is designed to smooth fine lines, restore luminosity and deeply moisturise. A potent proprietary blend of extracts helps protect against environmental aggressors and aid in skin wellness. Skin feels smooth, hydrated and looks even toned and radiant.

This oil is quite rich and would be suitable to use in the day & night after serum in winter. Just take 2-3 drops and gently press onto face, neck and decolletage until absorbed for additional moisturiser protection. And in summer or other seasons, I would recommend you to use this product during your night skincare regime and this would be extremely be suitable for people sleeping in air condition room. If you have extremely dry skin, you can use in the morning too but maybe 1-2 drops would be sufficient due to our humid weather.

Jurlique Calendula Redness Soothing Moisturising Cream (RM150/40ml or RM288/100ml) 

A rich moisturising cream for sensitive skin that deeply hydrates and soothes whilst protecting skin from environmental aggressors.

During winter our skin will sometimes turn to become sensitive hence I got moisturer from sensitive range to use as well. This soothing product helps to heal and restore damaged or scarred skin. Although the product texture is cream but it's light and non-greasy so it's okay to be for people with oily skin I believe.

I was a bit hesitate to use natural skincare brand in winter because I have the perception natural/organic skincare brand might be less hydrating and less efficient but Jurlique proved me wrong.

And after a month  of using the product (in Harbin & Malaysia), I can see my skin are properly hydrated and in fact skin was glowing! The pores & fine line are noticeable smaller and faded out. The fact that Jurlique skincare especially the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum was able to perform during Malaysia hot weather to Harbin cold weather truly impressed me. Unlike previous winter trip I always came home to Malaysia with nose area skin peeling (cos the skincare was not hydrating enough) and sometimes I have to swap to another skincare range in Malaysia (it's too rich for Malaysian weather)

I also went  to try Jurlique Water Essence Skin Activating Facial Treatment a week before CNY. I'm super impressive with the facial because it really condition, hydrate and revitalise my skin.. 

I can see the GLOW immediately after facial 😍😍😍 unbelievable and this is a #nofilter #nomakeup picture!! 

Good news is there is a 50% for first trial (Normal price RM430 for 1h45m facial)... Pls go try and experience is relaxing yet effective facial :) 

Thanks to Jurlique skincare for making my skin was looking great during Chinese New Year too :) Makeup stay well and this is a #nofilter pic!

Get your wines delivered within 3 hours in Klang Valley with WineTalk this CNY!

Wine was discovered about 6,000 years ago by accident when native yeasts stuck to grapes stored in containers turned the sugars in the grapes into alcohol. And today wine become our favorite beverage to a lot of us. I read in an article in Telegraph UK and found out here are some interesting benefits from drinking wine? Accordingly...wine could actually

1) Stop weight gain - this has not work on me yet lah... but according to the recent study from Washington State University, in 2012 researchers in Korea found that another compound found in red grapes called 'piceatannol' has the ability to block the processes that cause fat cells to grow.

2) Prevent cancer -  Scientists have revealed that 'resveratrol' may also help to prevent head and neck cancer. Researchers found that the compound has the potential to kill the damaged cells that can lead to certain cancers

3) Stop bug bites - If you have a bed bug problem, drinking a glass of red wine before bed could be the solution. Research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, found that bed bugs prefer blood that isn't tainted by alcohol. 

4) Prevent memory loss -  Using rats, researchers at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine found that reseveratrol helped prevent age-related memory decline. Once the rats who had been treated with resveratrol were two years old, they had improved learning, memory and mood function. 

5) Help you live longer - Scientists have found that resveratrol suppresses molecules that cause inflammation and compounds in the blood which interfere with the production of insulin, thus helping us to live longer and healthier lives. The researchers, from the University of Buffalo, also found resveratrol reduced the development of type 2 diabetes and strokes..


Whatever the reasons are for you to drink wine, I think basically wine makes us feel happy lah...

If you are a wine lover like me, you got to check out WineTalk as they are the largest online shop in Malaysia with more than 2,800 labels of wines available. There are white wines, red wines, champagnes, sparkling wines, rosé wines and even non-alcoholic wines for you to pick to be  delivered straight to your home or preferred address.

They said that they want you to love the wine you're with so they guarantee satisfaction on all our products. If you're not happy with something, just let them know via email and they will swap the bottle for you. Wow!

On top of that, they pledge for "

Their Fast & Fabulous delivery service will ensure your order will be delivered within the same (or next) business day (Klang Valley) or by the next day (Outside Klang Valley) if purchased by 3pm. If they late, we’ll refund your delivery fee. Sounds totally promising right?


What caught my eyes was WineTalk website has a section where promise you to get your wine within 3 hours. This delivery is valid on orders placed between 9am-6pm from Mondays to Fridays, excluding Public Holidays within Klang Valley (key in your postcode to see your area is covered!). They promise deliveries will be done within the same day up to 9pm (Find how here how you can get your wine delivery within 3 hours)!! Well I checked my placed was covered and make some order...

I think this is perfect for us who likes to do last minutes party at home or even to have some wine over dinner or movie! No need to carry and just chill at home to get your wines deliver leh!


So I picked up 3 bottles of wines recommended by wine advisors in WineTalk and these Chateau du Seuil labels are exclusive to WineTalk.

Chateau du Seuil was built between the 13th and 14th Century and is located just 10km north from Aix-en-Provence, in the heart of the Provence. The 300-hectare domain has a magnificent view that spans from the Sainte Victoire in the east to the Mediterranean in the south west, surrounding by a woods and a great biodiversity of deer, partridges, hares or wild boar, taking opportunity to pick the local wild thyme. 

The Chateau de Seuil develops wines that have a unique character among the best wines of Provence. Situated on a plateau, at an altitude between 350 and 450 meters, the vineyard benefits from the sun and a particularly favourable and diverse terroir for growing grapes: dry, filtering limestone soil with diversified exposure; a dry and hot climate in summer but cool at night; a permanent and beneficial Mistral breeze that reduces the risk of disease; an altitude that limits the alcohol content of wines and gives them freshness.


CHATEAU DU SEUIL - COTEAUX D'AIX EN PROVENCE ROSE

Country: France 
Grapes: Grenache & blends

This is a superb, classic Provence Rose – with a light, shiny, bright, clear salmon colour, it shows red fruits and white flowers aromas blossom on the first nose. A gourmet citrus juice carries through on the palate in a fresh and lively impulse. An elegant and exquisite final delights the taste-buds. 

I love this rose wine, taste so sweet and smooth. This Château du Seuil rosé can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or as a match for grilled meats and Mediterranean dishes. Highly recommend to you guys to try out this!

Conti Formentini was created in 1520 by the Formentini family; Venetian Counts, when they purchased the existing castle in the town of San Floriano del Collio, the highest hilltop village in eastern Friuli and the surrounding feudal lands. Wine from the vineyards surrounding the Castello Formentini and the hills of San Floriano have been made here ever since and the Formentini cellar is considered one of the oldest in Collio. Selected from vines growing at around 250m height, their Pinot Grigio is aged on its lees for about 6 months to add depth and richness. It offers an ample and pervasive perfume with an engaging fragrance of wild honey, walnut husks and dry flowers. It is dry, smooth and creamy on the palate and offers a fresh, harmonic flavour with a very persistent finish of pears and fruit with ripe yellow flesh. 

This wine is light golden color with yellow highlights. The taste is dry, smooth, creamy, fresh and very harmonious. Love how the aroma with hints of peach and pear I think. 

Here I wan to share some nuts and wine pairing tips I have learn from WineTalk.

Hazelnuts – Chardonnay, Syrah 
Chestnuts – Merlot Walnuts – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon 
Candied Walnuts – Cabernet, Riesling 
All types of Pecans – Pinot Noir or any lighter red wines, Riesling 
Roasted nuts of all kinds – Rich, red wines 
Spicy almonds or pecans – Cava 
Cashews or pistachios – Lighter, zesty, summer-friendly wines 
Almonds of any kind – Prosecco, cava, champagne 

This is just a guide for nuts & wine pairing and best for you to try and experiment with your taste buds to see which is suitable to you

Well I personally love to shop in WineTalk, plenty of selection, proper information and review stated all in one page. It was easy to browse, buy and get it deliver without any hassle! Seriously the 3 hours guarantee delivery thingy is totally a winner... better & faster service than Lazada or Zalora lol! 

With CNY in less a week time & Valentine in next 3 weeks, well there are more reasons to drink & celebrate! I saw Winetalk having some CNY promo for their exclusive wines at 18% off with code: HUATAH. For more information, how to buy affordable wide range of wines, alcohol, ciders and spirits or  in Malaysia don't forget to visit http://winetalk.com.my/
