6 Benefits of PURE BEAUTY The First Intense Treatment Essence from Korea

Pure Beauty The First Intense Treatment Essence (150ml) @ RM119.90

With the strong Korean wave hitting our shore, who doesn't love trendy Korean beauty products? This is especially the case when I always admire the flawless and young complexion of Korean celebrities. Thanks to Pure Beauty, I have just found "the one" for my skin!

Yes, I am talking about the gigantic "bottle" I hold here. Pure Beauty has recently launched The First Intense Treatment Essence, an exceptional beauty innovation enriched with fermented yeast concentrate with a whopping 95.3% of Galactomyces, hence packed with amino acid, vitamin and enzyme that helps in skin brightening and improving elasticity.

In fact, it is an extension product to the Pure Beauty family. What distinguishes it from its family is the unique formulation that features Bulgarian Rose Water to soothe mild sensitive skin, restore skin youthfulness, and therefore able to deliver the following skin benefits:
  1. Improve hydration
  2. Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  3. Minimise pores
  4. Even skin tone
  5. Improve luminosity
  6. Healthy, glowy radiance
I guess that explains why it is dubbed as the Amazing Essence. 

(L-R) Dato Kee Hua Chee, Claudia Low, Editor, CLEO, Caryn Loh, Chief Operating Officer, Watsons Malaysia, Amber Chia, Malaysia’s top model, Danny Hoh, Head of Marketing, Watsons Malaysia and Charis Ow, YouTuber at the launch of Pure Beauty 1st Intense Treatment Essence.

1 essence, 3 usages; Impressive! 

(1) Similar to many essences, it can be applied as a treatment essence on skin using cotton pad after cleansing, followed by the usual skincare such as toner, serum, moisturizer, cream etc. 

(2) Alternatively, it also works well as a revitalizing mask that allows quicker and fuller absorption into skin. Just soak a DIY mask sheet with this essence and apply it on skin for 15–20 minutes, and you'll feel the brighter, softer and smoother skin instantlyAfter 2 weeks, skin looks luminous and firmer.

(3) For the rest of the body: Yes, you can wipe the excess onto dull and dry elbows and knees to give them softer and brighter appearance too.

Personally, I find that its lightweight, liquid-like texture feels refreshing and moisturizing on the skin. As I prefer applying it directly on skin, I'd suggest for a more generous application as it gives a cooling, plump sensation that relaxes the skin. 

Plus, it does not contain any harmful ingredients such as paraben, lanolin and alcohol. So, it is odourless and does not give any stinging sensation even if you apply it generously.  

Amber Chia, the Watsons Celebrity Friend, was also present and shared her personal experience of using this Amazing Essence. She mentioned that her skin is fresher, more supple and healthier after a week of consistent use. She noticed fewer lines and dark circles too. Sounds fab right? 

I'd wish to own flawless, procelain complexion like hers!

Packaging wise, it looks simple, practical and elegant with roses doodles printed on it.

Having said all these, I guess it's time for you to visit Watsons and try it out yourselves!

White Horse Tavern Bar & Restaurant @ Jalan Ampang, KL

Located among the cluster of embassies along the busy street of Jalan Ampang, White Horse Tavern is the newest establishment sitting at the corner lot of the ground floor in Amp Walk mall. Parking is ample here, be it underground carpark or roadside bays.

From the outside, it may look like another drinking hole in KL, but this cosy English tavern and family restaurant actually has a spacious dining area with a kids play area, and serves an extensive menu of delicious food that gives us plenty of surprises.

BBQ Chicken Wings @ RM32

For the starter, you shouldn't miss the crowd's favourite BBQ chicken wings. Beautifully coated with the special sweet-spicy sauce and barbecued to charred perfection, the crispy chicken wings are pretty addictive once you get hooked on.

[Chef's Signature Creation] Honey Comb Baby Pork Ribs @ RM129

When it comes to the mains, White Horse Tavern Ribs win the biggest applause among the diners of the evening. It is specially invented by the in-house chef, Chef Yogi, using pure honeycomb from Cameron Highlands. It creates a caramelized sweet, nutty kick on the sticky BBQ coating, with fork-tender meat that falls off the bone easily. 

White Horse Tavern is probably the only place in KL to get this amazing dish!

Exclusively available after 12noon from Mondays to Saturdays, be sure to make reservation to avoid disappointment. Served with grilled corn on the cob, jacket potato and a choice of sauce — BBQ, Black Pepper Mushroom or Hellfire XL Sauce — I prefer the latter one which is extra spicy and gives a very fiery kick on the palate.

Crispy Roast Pork Knuckle @ RM90

Hog lovers like me is totally on cloud nine when the pork knuckle is served deboned for easy pickins', along with crisp golden cracking and streaky bacon. The flesh is surprisingly moist and tender, best dipped into the creamy spicy mustard, or the prune and apple compote that gives a nice balance of savoury goodness. 

Chef Yogi also demonstrates to us how easy is it to debone a perfectly-roasted pork knuckle. Although it takes 30 minutes for preparation, I believe good things are worth the wait. Highly recommended! But it is only available after 6pm from Mondays to Saturdays ya.

Pork Burger (180g) @ RM28

Nevertheless, my personal favourite goes to the burger because of the ultra juicy grilled pork patty that is literally bursting with flavours as soon as I sink my teeth into it. Apart from the thick patty, it is also served with fries, salad, caramelized onion, coleslaw and gherkin which is sure to satisfy those with big appetite. Best dipped into Hellfire XL Sauce for spicy lovers!

Deep Dish Alfredo Pizza @ RM32

For the pizzas, they are equally notable as the chef creatively injects unique ingredients into each. Seafood lovers will enjoy this grilled fin fish pizza loaded with melted Gouda cheese and cream. A helping of chilli flakes and pepper sauce adds a delicious spicy punch to the oceanic pizza. 

Dad’s Breakfast Pizza @ RM28

But if you are seeking for something more filling, then the breakfast pizza makes a better choice as it is protein-laden with different breakfast goodies all loaded on an ultra thin, crisp crust— Eggs, sausages, bacon, mushroom and hash browns with Cheddar cheese.

Fish Gratin @ RM35
Fin fish served with creamy mashed potatoes, leeks, carrots and zucchini in cheesy white sauce.

Chicken Mushroom Pie @ RM38

Honestly, I am surprised by its widely diversified menu. It even serves homemade pies here which is not a common scene in many bar-concept restaurants. Accompanied with creamy mashed potatoes, Roast Gravy Sauce and sautéed vegetables, the flaky crusty pie is generously filled with meat and thick gravy which can easily stuff us to the brim.

Minced Beef Pie @ RM38
Served with jacket potato, green salad and sautéed vegetables

If you are craving for more meats, do head to the deli counter, choose among
the wide varieties of marinted meats and have them grilled specially for you!

 Bread and Butter Pudding with Homemade Caramel Sauce (The above is not in full portion)

Nope, the night does not just end with the dessert. After the meal, we head to the bar instead, and wash down our meal with the selection of icy cold beers, premium scotches and wines. If that is not your cup of tea, you can choose from their extensive beverage list where you can pick whatever that suits food pairing and individual taste.

This place is simply perfect to host your birthday party, celebration or corporate event, followed by a great after party. There are live band performance on Friday’s, pub quizzes, Salsa nights and other events happening from time to time. 

Don't forget to pair your drinks with some light tapas such as the Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
wrapped in bacon with mozzarella cheese and then grilled to perfection.

Overall, White Horse Tavern has brought us a wonderful dining experience, followed by a nice chill-out session till late night. Worth a revisit? Certainly, be it for brunch, dinner or even supper!

Wigsbuy Hot Celebrity Wigs Sales Online

If you have been following me on Instagram, surely you've seen the drastic changes on my hair for the past few months. I am not sure about you but I am the type of person who will get bored of my hairstyle easily after a couple of months, and am constantly looking for refreshing changes. 

In order to stay in-trend with the latest styles, a good alternative will be the wide selections of high quality wigs from Wigsbuy. This is especially when you want your hair to look like that of the celebrities, because it offers plenty of Human Hair Celebrity Wigs.

I personally would love to try on a short, pixie-like hairstyle that looks very cool and boyish. Among the latest African American Wigs, Rihanna's short straight wig is just awesome to keep my overall look clean and polished. But if you would love other short styles such as straight bob and short kinky curly hair, then here's the right place to go: http://shop.wigsbuy.com/Custom-Short-African-American-Wigs-102155/

Also, ladies with long hair are often more attractive, feminine and beautiful in the eyes of the men. It's true when I ask my male friends and most of them admit that they prefer girls with long tresses. But, we know that our hair cannot grow long (say, to the waist length) overnight. Apart from doing hair extension, the quickest way is to wear a long hair wig. Rihanna's silky straight hair and red curly hair are equally lovely, right?

Let's Play with The Hair! - Quick & No Damage

Have you ever felt that you want to try a new hairstyle but at the same time, afraid to go for it? Be it a new haircut or an unusual hair color, it is a very subjective matter whether you will find it suitable, or people around you are able to see you differently through your hairstyles... Once cut or bleached, it cannot be undone. 

Wow! Throughout these 2 years (2014-2016), I can't believe that I have done so much on my own, changing my style from long to short, from plain black to hot red, from natural to ombre and blonde. But as soon as I start working, I know I cannot be so adventurous on my hairstyles anymore. It's saddening, isn't it? 

But actually I have regretted over-bleaching my hair until I have to chop it off due to the severe damage. Now I have learnt my lesson and also found a good alternative to it, which is more affordable, easier and safer for the tresses. If you love playing with the hair but afraid to "take the risk", then Hair Weave certainly works very well.

I recently stumbled upon this site where I can easily hunt for Cheap Hair Wefts which come in different designs such as kinky curls, deep waves, silky straight, loose waves and more. Quality wise, they do not tangle easily because they are made of real human hair-- meaning 100% unprocessed virgin hair that gives you the thick and natural look.

High Quality 100% Brazilian Hair Ombre Color of Grey Body Wave Hair Weave

To me, hair wefts give the flexibility that I want :) I can even cut, perm, color, dye or straighten them according to my personal preference, so that it appears more natural and blends well with my existing hair. Most importantly, the hair ends are healthy without any splits, unlike the current condition of my own hair now. 

Since ombre hair is in trend recently, I really don't mind giving it a try to lengthen my hair since growing more than 5 inches seems impossible within a short period of time. 

Sometimes, I'd prefer using human hair wigs instead if I need different hairstyles for special occasions especially during cosplay parties. But my friends have commented that wigs are difficult to take care. If you are really a newbie int this, it is actually quite simple-- Just keep the wig fresh, glossy, and oil-free each time after use by keeping your own scalp and hair clean. Usually I'd get those with lace frontal cap underneath the wig which is more breathable.

There are just so many hair wefts and wigs on the website that I can't make up my mind.
So what hair color or hair length do you think suit me the most? Feel free to share with me!

Rimbayu Big Fun Day @ The Arc, Bandar Rimbayu, Kota Kemuning

Hi, how was your weekend? I was pretty excited when I heard that my Dad was bringing us to Rimbayu Together-gather Big Fun Day at Kota Kemuning. It was a great carnival for families and friends to unwind and spend an enjoyable Sunday together, and also a perfect ending to the Chinese New Year festive season. 

If you do not already know, Bandar Rimbayu is an integrated township by IJM Land with residential, commercial, recreational and parkland components sitting on a 1,879 acre site surrounded by tranquil greenery. Yes, I am not joking when I say so-- Rimbayu had literally transported me to a serene, urban forest, far from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Happy Year of Monkey from Rimbayu!

The place was well-decorated with beautiful ornaments that lifted our festive spirits, and the appearance of the God of Fortune and Clown further boosted our mood as they spread happiness with the generous distribution of golden ingot, coins and balloons to the guests. 

Mr. Clown, can I have a cute shaped balloon too? :D

During the event, Rimbayu was transformed into a wetland as there were loads of water activities for families to enjoy with the little ones. I regretted for not bringing my niece along, otherwise she would be overjoyed to try each game there.

One of the most popular activities was Water Zorbing. Have you tried walking on the water, inside an inflated ball? Whether to stand upright or run like a hamster in a ball, it was fun to be "water walkers" if you hadn't tried it before. Classic games like Fish Scooping, Air Shooter and Bumper Boat were also available to relive those happy childhood moments.

Fish Scooping

Bumper Boat

Air Shooter

And the latest hit in town was there for everyone to try too! Honestly, I didn't know that
the Electronic Skateboard was so easy to play and control. Great experience indeed :)

Of course, the Big Fun Day was not complete without a series of performances by the special guests of the day. Let's say Hi to the emcee of the day-- Gan Jiang Han (颜江瀚), an ASTRO host whom my parents liked a lot. 

...followed by the amazing singing from the talents: Apple (邱诗凌), winner of the annual ASTRO Star Quest Chinese Singing Competition 2015, Uriah See (徐凯), winner of the annual ASTRO Star Quest Chinese Singing Competition 2014, and Sharon (黄雪云), the 1st runner up of ASTRO Classic Golden Melody Singing Competition 2013.

Don't you agree that good music and fun games should also come hand in hand with delicious food? We were spoilt with many choices of snacks and desserts from the food trucks there. After pampering the tummy, it was time to visit the property show gallery...

The houses at Bandar Rimbayu are totally dreamland to me! Featuring green roof deck, covered walkways, reflecting canal and open communal space, Bandar Rimbayu is amongst the largest certified green township that brings us closer to nature, enjoy a fresh luxurious lifestyle.

From the living area to the bedrooms and every corner of the house, it looks so comfortable
and exudes a sense of modern elegance and polished sophistication.

Spacious and brightly lit with natural sunshine; How I wish to own a unit at this beautiful neighbourhood! Moreover, this new township is easily accessible via KESAS, LKSA, ELITE and SKVE highways. 

Anyway, thank you IJM Land for having such a nice family gathering day to mark an end of the CNY celebration. If you're free, feel free to drop by at The Arc, Bandar Rimbayu show gallery which is available for public viewing.
