2014 Will Be Magical

Hello, lovelies! Happy New Year!!! I hope by now you are ready to step into 2014 with a positive mindset and a big smile on the face :) The days will come one after another, so it’s important to have a whole new perceptive in life this year.

What matters is not the end result, but it’s the process. 2013 has treated me pretty well, it was really eventful and fulfilling. Let’s do a quick recap, and see how satisfied I am so far :) You can click on the red, bold phrases to read (if you haven’t!) about the related blogpost.

2013 began with a new home, a new environment and a happy occasion in the family. The new house was bigger than the old one which I’ve lived ever since I was born, but the number of members living in it is lesser by 1. Because my one and only sister has gotten married and now has a new family on her own :’) As much as I love quarrelling with her since young, I missed the moments we were sleeping in the same room, all the comfort and cries we had over the past 20 years. 7 years gap between us just made us better sisters! 

Nevertheless, we're glad that she has finally found her Mr. Right. 
Hopefully I’d be expecting a niece or nephew this year! :D 

As usual, every February marks the month of my final examination in university. Let's forget about the boring part of exam, and talk about what I did post-exam! Special thanks to Blackmores Malaysia, my entry for "Doing a Good Deed" has granted me a grand prize--- Blackmores hamper worth RM800 + 3 days 2 nights trip to Avillion Port Dickson. I'm such a lazy blogger, I haven't blogged bout this trip since February!!! Will do it this year ya, be patient :)

The trip was a great relaxing trip for me and my parents, as we stayed at the water chalet and enjoyed the beautiful sunrise from the windows of our room. I didn't realize having a slow stroll along the windy beach with Mummy was romantic too! Food adventure began there too: Gigantic curry bun @ Lukut and freshest seafood @ Weng Yin

Back to work for March. It was an eventful month with a series of food adventure in town. The fresh sushi and sashimi above was from Ten Japanese Fine Dining, and I indeed had gained 7kg from my gastronomical adventure throughout the year. 2014 resolution: Lose that 7kg away!! 

Thank you for the overwhelming beauty sponsors and beauty box surprises from Vanity Trove, MIVVA, HiShop, ModBox and Bag of Love!! I feel most grateful for winning a huge Plasmacluster Ion Generator from Philips and Churpchurp + a compact Plasmacluster air care equipment.


My blogging journey with Manoah has been smooth and full of surprises. This round I have gotten my first sponsored tickets for live concert by Taiwanese artists. Great rocking experience with Tanya Chua and Ah Yue at Genting!

Thanks CHARRIOL, luxury Swiss watchmaker for the sponsored trip to Singapore to attend their press conference (and did lots of personal shopping with the bloggers!) Best thing is that we had a luxurious stay at a hotel in Orchard Road and visited Marina Bay Sands there :) 

Well, July was all about work (again!). Was shortlisted as Top 10 Laneige K-Beauty blogger finalists. Although I didn't win at the final round, I got a whole set of Laneige skincare products and become a loyal user since then. The Laneige Snow BB Cushion is highly recommended!!!

Organized my first beauty blogger review session at Pedas Springs Spa, Genting Highlands. The place was really Zen, and next time when I visit Genting, I'd think of having spa instead of entering the casino HAHAHA. 

Thank you Pedas Springs team for the great hospitality, and the girls for coming! And I hope to have more opportunities to organize review events for you guys :) 

Was fortunate to have a 3 days 2 nights experience with Honda Hybrid! And I even drove it to Malacca!! I was not used to driving big cars (mine is Kelisa at home lol), but woohoo, the feeling was really good. I have always loved food hunting in this heritage city, and the journey was so smooth with this car. 

I haven't had a haircut since January!! As much as I love my waist-length hair, it had given me lots of hassle (Wash, blow, dry, split-ends, unhealthy waves), and I decided to chop it off! But now I wish it comes back to me. New year resolution: Have waist-length hair again! 

It was trimester break again, and this time I went to Kukup Island and Johor Premium Outlet at Johor, and Resorts World Sentosa and Universal Studio at Singapore. I realised I haven't blogged about any of these!!! Laziness level 895270341 -_-" New year resolution: Finish up all the backlogs!

Welcome my brandnew logic fuzzy rice cooker, saloon hair curler, ceramic straightener and easy hair dryer from Philips Malaysia! Thanks The Butterfly Project for having me in the Philips Meaningful Innovation project :) 

Thank you Edufly, I had my first 1-day air stewardess experience with Jane Chuckei! It was not easy being a flight attendant, hahaha I still prefer being a passenger and enjoy the services and in-flight food! 

November is the most exciting month ever because it was my birthday!!
Thank you Aloft KL Sentral for the sponsored 3 days 2 nights stay :) I miss the rooftop pool!

My second sponsored hotel stay of the month at the famous boutique hotel, Casa Del Rio Melaka. I have blogged about their fine dining by the river with delectable wine, and Nyonya lunch for a relaxing Saturday. The hotel review will be up real soon! 

As December approached, we were all excited because Christmas was around the corner and it was the perfect time for shopping! Santa was generous to reward me the latest Furby BOOM, a noisy furkid from Furby Malaysia. Naughty but adorable!! ♥ 

Although I didn't get to celebrate Christmas because of exams (T_T), I was glad that Christmas present didn't stop coming! :D Let me present to you my best friend from Akiyo Jewellery. The only regret here was, I returned to buy a rose gold ring, but it was already out of stock at all outlets *heart broken*

Finally, 2013 came to an end, and I had the most memorable New Year's Eve ever! 

The crowd was mad, although I arrived at KLCC park around 8pm, people had already started camping there! Thanks to the PR person, I felt very privileged to be one of the media of the day, being ushered into a gated area and seated right in front of KLCC Lake Symphony Fountain to enjoy Malaysia's longest fireworks show with water screen display


2013 has been really awesome, and I hope 2014 will be even better with more surprises and magical moments Out of all the things I own today, I know it doesn't only belong to me, but belong to all of us! Because you have been supportive to that brings me so many opportunities and great things in life :)

Being a blogger really meant alot to me, and I'm truly thankful. The best gift is the friendship we made through the blogosphere and social media. If you see me in future events, remember to say Hi and take picture with me ^_^ I'll always remember you!

Lastly, all I need to say today is....
