こんにちは、岡山から、サンシャインの国!
Konnichiwa from Okayama (岡山), the Land of Sunshine!

It is autumn season in November, and Japan is one of the top countries to visit for its beautiful golden autumn foliage. I see alot of my friends travelling to Osaka, Tokyo and Hokkaido during this season, but these cities are just overcrowded for me to enjoy a relaxing trip!

So I am here exploring the Okayama Prefecture for 3 days (and another 2 full days in Tottori Prefecture - will share about it separately). 

Day 1: Kurashiki City (倉敷), Okayama
Day 2: Maniwa City (真庭市), Okayama
Day 3: Okayama City (岡山), Okayama

[FOOD] Going Adventurous at Chocha Foodstore, Petaling Street, KL

Chō Chǎ is one of the more interesting cafes in town which I think is worth trying out although it is not something new that is hyped up by the crowd. In fact, it has been around for 2 years now and has constantly been serving amazing Asian fusion cuisine that keeps me coming back for more.

Nestled in an old shop house at Chinatown KL, I really enjoy the cool comforts of the rustic interior decorated in warm tones of brown. Sitting on the long old-school benches, surrounded by potted plants and natural sunlight, Chocha is the place where I can spend my whole afternoon working alone or hanging out with friends.

[TRAVEL] 7D6N Melbourne Itinerary: Central Business District - Part 1

Hello, we are in Melbourne City!

After 3 full days of driving around the countryside full of mountains, beaches and sea, it is time to bid adieu to the nature's beauty and explore the vibrant, colorful city of Melbourne. Out of our 7 days in Melbourne, we spend the last 4 days in the Melbourne CBD (Central Business District) area meaning we don't need to drive around anymore because everywhere in the city is so accessible with public trams and trains.

[BEAUTY REVIEW] Marcella & Co Korean Cleansing Balm & Lip Creams

It is fun and exciting to unbox new beauty products which I have gotten online. This round, my beauty haul comes from www.marcellaandco.com, a local brand which sells pretty affordable skincare and makeup products.

*The first 200 customers will receive a FREE Travel Mini Jar!

Wait, you must be confused why does the title mention "Korean" when Marcella & Co is a 100% Malaysian brand. This is because the newest skincare addition in the family, the Cleansing Balm aka #MADbalm is Malaysia's first cleansing balm, made in Korea to deliver maximum benefits to our skin.

We all know how the flawless Korean skin looks like. But before feeding the skin with "nutrients" (skincare), it is important to first keep the skin thoroughly cleansed and free from impurities. That's why I am using the #MADbalm as the first step of skincare.

Function:
Kudos to the strong makeup removing ability! It does double the duty by removing heavy duty makeup (including stubborn mascara and eye makeup) on skin within seconds!

Ingredients:
Think pineapple, coconut and mulberry! Doesn't that feel like summer already?

Interestingly, #MADbalm is crafted using Pineapple Extract (removes dead skin cells and treats breakouts), Cold-pressed Coconut Oil (keeps skin hydrated, soft and supple) and Paper Mulberry Extract (reduces fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and uneven skin tone).

I don't think these tropical ingredients are commonly found in cleansing balms, but hey they work well and smell superb!

If you wonder how does the cleansing balm work, don't worry because an instruction sheet is provided!

Packaging: 

The jar may seem a little bulky for travelling, but you can always store some separately in mini jar and bring around wherever you go. Nevertheless, the packaging is secured (No spilling) and air-cabin approved.

Texture: 

The balm-like texture melts onto the skin, covering all the pores and
"dissolves" all the makeups / impurities away. Not overly greasy after cleansing.

Feel: 
Throughout the cleansing process, it does not feel drying at all
as it helps maintain the skin's moisture balance.

Effectiveness: 
This is pretty amazing! It melts away all my makeups including waterproof mascara and eyeshadow so effortlessly.

A great, quick solution for makeup removal without feeling harsh on the skin!



Marcella & Co Lip Creams

Marcella & Co is not just about skincare, but it also has a wide range of locally-made lip creams for makeup junkies to play with! With the new and improved formula, the lip creams are more lightweight, hydrating and last much longer than before!


Texture: 
The creamy texture slides smoothly onto the lips.

Feel: 
On my first try, I find that it has very high adherence onto the lips and
finishes off with a lovely matte coverage that lasts for long hours.

Bahama Mama - Nude pink for a natural lip makeup look

Havana Lana - Rosy pink color that creates a sexy kissable pout

Scent: 
Did I forget to mention that the lip creams exude mild rose scent too? Sweet!



Verdict:
If you are looking for value-for-money cleanser and affordable lip color without compromising on the quality,
then you should consider Marcella & Co.
