French Chocolate Indulgence with The Family

November has been a little rocky for me, nevertheless let's forget about it because it is always the great time well-spent with your loved ones that matters! This month, I managed to celebrate the very special day with my family, since we have 3 November babies in the house. 

Since our birthdays are just a few days away from one another, we'd usually have an ultimate celebration for all. Nothing beats the warmth and enjoyment to gather everyone and have a simple family dinner together ❤ 

This year I have picked a special cake from Cake Sense, something that looks
elegant and classy on the outside and of course must taste good inside.

French Chocolate Box @ RM95 from Cake Sense

I heard from the staff that this is the bestseller among all the flavours such as Red Velvet, Fruit Chantilly and loads more. So, I decided to give it a try since it is freshly baked on the same day during my visit.

The details are just perfect. Love the dainty toppings of 6 pieces of chocolates and 3 chocolate-coated strawberries!

And pieces of chocolate wrapping around the cake like a "gift box" 

Oh yums. Happy Belated Birthday to Daddy, Sis and myself!


But of course, the star of the evening is still my Daddy (and Mummy) :D

Cake cutting time after a sumptuous family dinner!

Oh this is just awesome! The chocolate sponge is layered with fresh chocolate cream and every bite surprises us with crunchy chocolate chips. Despite of being so rich in chocolate, the cake is not too sweet for my liking, and my family loves it too. 


Birthday. An opportunity for us to stop and appreciate all the beautiful things we have been blessed with. Let's enjoy the simplest celebration with the most memorable cake ;)

[Skincare] Pink by Pure Beauty with Watsons Malaysia

Courtesy to Watsons Malaysia, I had a fabulous pink date with Pure Beauty, a Korean skincare brand that is exclusively brought in and only available in Watsons stores. Knowing that the latest range of skincare by this brand is called "PINK", I'm so excited to dress in pink and attend this special sharing session with the babes and Malaysia's hottest makeup guru, Steven Sunny.

I am totally blown by the beautiful pastel pink decor that the team has put up for this event!

Pink by Pure Beauty is a range of 4 products: Essence Water, Essence, Pudding Cream and Blur Cream. Packaged in super cute pink and black bottles, this range is formulated using Pink Flower Complex Power, Alps Rose and other active natural whitening ingredients, to bring you the best of brightening and moisturizing effects.


Here are 4 steps to turn your skin into glowing pink tone!
Step 1: Pink Skin So Fresh Essence Water (200ml) @ RM39.90


The essence water is similar to a toner. If you have dry skin like mine, then it is best to soak cotton pads with this and leave it on to the cheeks and forehead for 10 minutes to get the instant rehydration. Otherwise, spraying it onto the face is equally great to allow better absorption.

 Step 2: Pink Skin So Glow Essence (30ml) @ RM49.90

Next is to "seal" moisture into the skin to keep it soothed, hydrated and dewy. Just tap small amount of this fluid onto the skin to allow absorption. Again, its lightweight texture pleases me well :) 

 Step 3: Pink Skin So Smooth Pudding Cream (50ml) @ RM39.90

The pudding cream is the star product of this range! Definitely a must try! Why? Because it helps to soften skin and leave it supple even during hot humid weather especially in Malaysia. 

The gel-like texture feels smooth on the skin and is easy to blend, without any sticky feeling at all.
And the best part is, it feels so cooling on my skin upon application!

Step 4: Pink Skin So Blur Cream (30ml) @ RM52.90 

The last step is the Koreans' latest obsession: Blur Cream. As in blurring our complexion so that it appears poreless, moist and translucent at all times! My personal favourite too!

It does a great job in correcting skin tone and refining pores. Overall, I am happy that it gives a fairly good coverage that can easily replace my CC Cream during the days that I feel like going for basic, "makeup-less" look. 

Of course, for fuller coverage, don't forget to try Pure Beauty CC Cream SPF30 PA++!

All thanks to Stevensunny for the detailed demonstration on the pre-makeup skin care regime,
I managed to learn some useful tips and have fun with the ladies ;)

If you want to achieve natural glowy pinkish fair skin tone, then the Pink by Pure Beauty range is a must-try for you! The range is currently available at all Watsons stores nationwide and Watsons online store. Visit them at:

Discover the Malaysia Wonders with Tourism Malaysia-Thailand & Seeties!

Courtesy to Tourism Malaysia-Thailand and Seeties.me, I received an awesome invitation to join a Malaysia Wonders Challenge with a total of 18 bloggers-- 9 from Thailand and 9 from Malaysia.

Aimed to promote Malaysia's tourism, I think this campaign was indeed an eye-opener as it exposed us with amazing places and food around 3 big cities-- KL, Penang and Ipoh-- that we had not visited before.

The friendly Thai blogger friends I met also had great fun throughout the 4-day adventure, experiencing Malaysia like a local and then using Seeties app to collect their memories throughout the journey and bring back to Thailand.

In KL, our meet-up point before starting the missions of the day was Einstein Cafe, located along Jalan Sultan (Same row with The Front Door). Apart from us bloggers, I also met a huge team from Thailand TV channels, who filmed the entire journey throughout the days. 

Einstein Cafe was a hidden gem serving great coffee and decent Western delights. Their chicken chop and aglio olio spaghetti are worth going for! They even had a separate menu for the vegans, so do hop over if you feel like having something meatless there. 

Read my complete review on Einstein Cafe: HERE.

Our first mission in KL: “Budget Travel Race”

The first task was all about street food (My favourite!) and souvenirs hunting within a budget of RM30 at Petaling Street, aka Chinatown, located in the heart of the city! We had our first try on the famous Grandma's Mua Chee. The sugar and peanut coated glutinous rice cakes were so chewy and sweet, and my Thai partner in crime approved it!

Deep-fried Sweet Potato Balls and Roasted Chestnuts are equally good if you prefer something Finally, Air Mata Kucing was the best to kill our thirst and cool the body during the hot scorching day. Only for RM1.80 per cup!

Unfortunately, the Apam Balik stall opened quite late (Around 12-ish) during weekday, but we still waited eagerly under the scorching hot sun for our portion of soft fluffy and moist sweet Malaysian "turnover pancake". 

5-star Grand Millennium Hotel Kuala Lumpur, located next to Pavilion KL

After a tiring session at Petaling Street, we were then transported to our crib of the evening: Grand Millennium KL, to relax and rejuvenate before proceeding to the next challenge.

Deluxe Room with Two Twin Beds

Adorned with contemporary furnishings, the room exudes a sense of luxury and comfort. A neutral colour palette of soft browns and creams lends room a relaxing feel. Plus, each room is equipped with a bathtub for ultimate enjoyment.

Breath-taking night view of the Kuala Lumpur city skyline, from my room

I absolutely love its location of being in the heart of KL. Shopping malls are just located within walking distance. And the best part is, I also managed to keep up with my fitness regime at the in-house fitness centre, and enjoy a leisurely dip in the outdoor swimming pool surrounded by lush greenery.

Read my complete review on Grand Millennium KL: HERE.

Our second part of the day was more relaxing as we were seated for the
Malaysia Wonders press conference with our fellow local media friends.

Next Mission: "My KL is hi-so and slow life!"

Hosted by Grand Millennium KL, our next challenge was to make our very own mocktail and prepare the Malaysians' No.1 favourite beverage-- Teh Tarik! Guess who can "pull" the most frothy and tasty Teh Tarik? The froth gives Teh Tarik a light texture and brings out more flavour along with creamy evaporated milk. Thanks Chef for the delicious glass of smooth, creamy Teh Tarik as our afternoon treat.

And moving on....it was mocktail making time!

Our ingredients for the special mocktail include Monin syrups, fresh fruit juices, ice cubes as well as fruit slices for decoration. The challenge was to create a beautifully presented mocktail that tasted great without being overly sweet within 10 minutes. My Thai teammate and I had created a Halloween drink using grape syrup and mango juice :P Who dares to try? 


Dinner time with a picturesque KL skyline view from Serai at Level 7 of Pavilion KL.

Approaching evening, we were treated with a feast of authentic Northern local cuisine at Serai in Level 7 at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. The restaurant exuded a posh, contemporary ambiance, allowing us to dine with a beautiful view.  

Serai's Favourite: Nasi Kerabu, Ayam Percik, Beef Satay, Steamed Seabass in
Lime Sauce, Pandan Banana Fritters with Palm Sugar Syrup and Berry Pavlova

First timers must try the crowd's No. 1 favourite here, the house specialty Nasi Kerabu featuring aromatic blue spiced rice, served with well-marinated Ayam Percik. If you have friends visiting Malaysia from overseas, Serai is indeed a great place to introduce the best of local flavours to them.

Read my complete review on Serai: HERE.

And the highlight of the evening was..... a surprise cake for my birthday!

Honestly it was really unexpected! I didn't even realise it when the restaurant was playing birthday song, as I was busy chatting with my new Thai friends. Thanks Seeties team for such a sweet arrangement!

Some generous Thai friends even gave me birthday present on the spot. T____T Thank you so much! 

Thank you Pavilion Kuala Lumpur for the early Christmas present!

From strangers to being a huge family, it was great meeting all of you! Our bonding time with the Thai bloggers came to an end after the evening, but we remained connected via social media platforms and Seeties app (www.seeties.me/malaysiawonders).

Via Seeties, Seetizens across Asia (Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan and more) can constantly enjoy the latest updates of their favourite cities and collect recommendations virtually to make them real-life experiences.
