6 Reasons To Use Japanese Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer

Collagen seems to be a magical word for most women eh? We have long heard about collagen for younger-looking skin, but have you ever "feed your hair with collagen" for healthier hair growth and quality?

Well, alot of hair products seem to be able to do the 'magic' of collagen now. But it is my first time hearing about a hair dryer delivering collagen into the hair through blowing!  Interesting eh?

Since it is a new Japanese technology recently brought into Malaysia by Superbuy.my, I have gotten myself  my very first Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer from TESCOM!

TESCOM's star product, the world's first Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer

If you have ever visited hair salons in Japan, TESCOM hair electronics such as hair dryer, straightener and curler are widely used in many hair parlours there. From being a "salon's preferred professional hair dryer brand" in Japan, TESCOM has just hit the shore of Malaysia and aims to be the "end consumer's first choice" in hair beauty.

TESCOM's range of hair styling products

In the beauty industry in Taiwan, I remember there was a massive hype about TESCOM products during 2014/2015 in which many beauty gurus and bloggers kept recommending this brand in their videos. 

Hello, TESCOM Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer imported from Japan!

The hairdryer is nicely protected in the air wrap.

Unlike the ordinary hair dryer that "dries up the hair" (Wet hair becomes dry, but loses moisture from within!), this Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer is designed to promote healthy hair growth and scalp protection using its unique technology -- beauty collagen.

When I tell my besties about this amazing hair dryer, they are like, "My current hair dryer costs me less than a hundred ringgit and it is working fine. Why should I pay so much for this TESCOM Hair Dryer?"

Well, if you say so, think again. It's simply because TESCOM does so much more than just drying the hair! Here are some reasons why you should switch to this Japanese hair dryer which you probably can't find in others. 

6 Reasons To Use Japanese Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer
1. Beauty Collagen

Beauty collagen consists of 2 elements: Collagen and negative ions -- which help to:
❤ Create a protective barrier to help retain moisture into hair cuticles
❤ Lesser damage from harmful UV rays 
❤ Reduce excess sebum on the scalp
❤ Reduce color fading and discoloration
❤ Promote bouncy, glossy and healthy hair

The collagen components are produced from the collagen box when exposed to heat. At the nozzle, there are double outlets to emit beauty collagen. The collagen box is detachable, hence refillable every 2 years (based on 15 minutes per blowing session, twice per day). Since I don't usually wash my hair everyday, the collagen content can last me much longer than that! 

On the hair? It feels smoother immediately after drying. Less frizz, more moisture!

2. Extra Scalp Care

It is quite rare to see hair dryers which are suitable for scalp. Usually the heat will damage the scalp, so this Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer has a two-temperature scalp care function mode -- from drying the hair at 120 degree Celsius to gently care for the scalp at 60 degree Celsius.

For chemically treated hair, you can also maintain the temperature at 60 degree Celsius too-- Nothing damaging / overheating for the hair and scalp -- Hence, more lasting colors for dyed hair. 

3. Adjustable Ion Output

With the negative ion control dial, you can adjust the amount of negative ions emitted from the ion outlet depending on the hair / weather condition. When the ions are too low, the indicator will turn red. I always keep it at high level with blue light indicator for the best of the hair.

4. Soft Blowing

It has an air-blow speed control switch with 3 speed levels: Level 1 Care, Level 2 Dry and Level 3 Turbo. It gives me better control and I find it extra useful when styling with the hair dryer. 

5. Cool Shot Switch

Warm and cool strong winds are interchangeable in just a push on the button.
I personally like cold blowing too, as it feels more gentle and soothing to the hair.

6. Portable
Foldable hair dryer saves space on my makeup table, and is convenient for travelling.

Can you see how HUGE is the difference???

On the left, I leave my hair dry naturally after hair wash, whereas on the right, I use TESCOM Beauty Collagen Hair Dryer. I am amazed with the end result-- Perfectly shiny healthy-looking hair despite of the bleached / damaged condition of my hair.

[Let's Travel Locally!] Launch of Asia Pacific One Belt One Road (OBOR) Tourism Industry Fund 亚太一带一路旅游产业基金

Hello! Am feeling awesome for attending such a prestigious event with the babes over the weekend.

Hong Kong based Evergreen Offshore Inc. (Evergreen) recently launches a HKD10 billion worth of Asia Pacific One Belt One Road (OBOR) Tourism Industry Fund (亚太一带一路旅游产业基金), a private equity fund investment in Malaysia's ever growing tourism sector.

As you may be aware, China and Malaysia have always really close since the yesteryear and Evergreen's decision to debut the fund in Malaysia is strongly backed by the evident growth of Malaysia's tourism industry and the government’s plan to increase its investment in developing the sector.

We often hear the tagline "Malaysia Truly Asia", and indeed we are blessed with so many beautiful places around us, no doubt the tourism and travels become Malaysia’s third largest source of foreign exchange earnings. Hence, this fund can definitely bring the tourism of Malaysia and other regions along the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road to the next level. 

Apart from the Chinese government, I think we should be thankful that many private sectors, including Evergreen, have come together to contribute to the success of the ambitious OBOR initiative by investing in the tourism development projects along the OBOR trade route.

Let's officiate the soft launching by the signing of the billions worth of agreement.

The Fund is managed by Ever Centurion Limited based in Hong Kong. AFV Consultants Group Sdn Bhd is exclusive strategy partner in Malaysia involved in project assessment and due diligence process.

You Are A Miracle, So Count Your Blessings!

Everyday, on Facebook, surely we'd see people around us complaining about their daily life-- be it the traffic jam, or the slow internet-- Well, it can be almost....anything in life! But have we ever put our shoes into the less fortunate ones who have been staying strong and positive in life? For instance, those who have disability yet are able to live like a normal person.

Be grateful for what you have; Make your blessings count!

Recently I've been reading a lot of inspiring stories, and one of them that I'd love to share is about a girl, Nurul Ashikin, or lovingly known as Shikin. She is naturally born with hearing impairment and talking difficulty, but her family has never given up on her. Their determination has proven that miracle does happen.

Shikin, the youngest in her family.

At the age of 1, Shikin's abnormality was discovered as she hadn't started talking like other infants. To me, it was really heart-breaking to hear that a little girl, aged 5, had to undergo a potential cochlear implant but most specialists mentioned it was too late. She had considered hearing aids but the results were not promising.

Thank God for listening to her family's prayer, they met Dr. Arasa from Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur who gave her a life-changing opportunity. He suggested applying for the Khazanah-IHH Healthcare Fund in view of their financial constraint.

 This fund is not just for people with hearing disability, 
but also for anyone who has medical complications!

It helps provide partial or fully sponsored medical treatment to needy patients in Malaysia, Singapore and Turkey. Since 2012, the Fund allocated RM50 million for use over a period of 5 years, until 2017. While Malaysian patients have been allocated to utilise 70% of the Fund, the remaining 30% is catered to help patients in Singapore and Turkey.

Shikin (in blue scarf) and her beloved family were enjoying the sweet melody of birds chirping.

Thanks to this fund, Shikin has successfully undergone the operation last year. Imagine a child being able to speak and hear her beloved family's voice once she wakes up from her dream. The world has certainly changed in her eyes!

It is an astonishing statistic to know that the Khazanah-IHH Healthcare Fund has extended help to some 1,000 people in Malaysia to date. Sharing is caring. If you believe in the Fund's tagline, "Restoring Health, Changing Lives", then please spread the words. Who knows if you might be a life changer of someone in this world?

Any inspiring story to share with me? Feel free to leave a comment below!

Happy Deepavali 2016!

Happy Deepavali to my dear readers who are celebrating!

Each year this time, it is always about gathering at my friends' open house and enjoy buttery Murukku, sweets, and lots more with people from different races, religions and nations. Well, in light of the Deepavali celebration, we Malaysians should respect each other’s’ differences and embrace similarities. Don't you think so?

This meaningful festival of light is beyond reunion with families and friends. It serves as a reminder to us to have compassion for others. Let the light shines within us and continue respecting each other as both individuals and as Malaysians.

I know, I know, judging may seem easier than finding the truth. Watch the video below if you don't get what I mean. Can Muniandy and his friend escape the misjudgement?

Click bit.ly/2eT069C to watch our #PETRONASDeepavali2016 webfilm!

Greater harmony can be achieved through greater understanding and compassion. I believe, we may have physical and social differences, but we live as one in Malaysia. As true Malaysians, let's embrace the differences and live in harmony together! 

Wishing all of you a very Happy Deepavali 2016;
May this festival bring lot more light and happiness to your life!

Jacob Creeks Double Barrel Wine Pairing Dinner @ EGG - 8 Gourmets Gala, Bandar Sunway, PJ

An evening well-spent with Jacob’s Creek, the famous Australian winemaker's latest blend of unique red wines – the Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel – is a memorable experience on its own, taking home with me a well of knowledge about the great wine.

The newly-launched Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel comes as a pair, namely the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which have been finished in aged whiskey barrels. So what is so special about the whiskey barrels? Well, it actually adds another layer of complexity and texture to traditionally barreled beverages. The resulting taste? Refined, intense and well-developed.

As each barrel performs differently, it takes time to understand the true effect on the wines. From careful selection of high quality fruit at the vineyards to the maturation process in French and American oak barrels and the finishing in old whiskey barrels, every step is taken with care, to ensure the wines achieve perfectly-balanced results.

With the longstanding tradition of wine and cuisines, Jenny Rothenberg, the brand ambassador, guides us through an experiential food pairing session of the cuisine and Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel.

Pan-seared French Foie Gras
Wine Pairing: Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir

Our gastronomical journey begins with the classic French foie gras. Its luxurious, buttery taste calls for a good sip of the fresh, vibrant sparkling wine such as the Chardonnay Pinot Noir. The champagne gives a balance to rich and creamy texture of the dish very well, especially with the added sparkle in the refreshing, lemony concoction. 

White Truffle Pumpkin Potage
Creamy, smooth and earthy; Delicious!

Smoked Turkey Drumstick
Wine Pairing: Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz and Jacob’s Creek Reserve Shiraz

While the Reserve Shiraz's full-bodied palate and soft tannin structure pair well with the heavily smoked turkey drumstick, we appreciate the greater flavour complexity that the latest Double Barrel Shiraz offers. 

Full-bodied, the palate is generous with a mix of sweet red fruits and dark chocolate. Traditionally, it exudes subtle toasty vanilla flavours, but the aged Scotch whiskey barrels finishing adds nuances of almond-husks and softer tannins to it, yielding extra smoothness to the wine. 

The wine tastes extra good with strong, savoury dishes!

Poached Lobster with Truffle Garlic Oil
Wine Pairing: Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon and Jacob’s Creek Cabernet Sauvignon

Compared to the Shiraz, I personally prefer the Cabernet Sauvignon -- A classic one tastes strong yet elegant with rich blackcurrant and plum flavour, supported by cedar and spice notes. 

Whereas the Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon is more complex, structured and extra rich, all thanks to the unique Double Barrel technique of finishing in aged Irish whiskey barrels. On the mouth, the fine, dusty tannins give excellent line and length to the beverage, and are layered with sweet and toasty characters reminiscent of creme brulee.

The beautifully poached lobster tastes extra sweet and succulent when its flavour is accentuated by the delicious Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon. Love the juicy, delicate flavour of the lobster which comes from within!  

Pan-seared Wagyu - Marbling Grade 9
Wine Pairing: Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon and Jacob’s Creek Cabernet Sauvignon

For another main course, we are totally smitten by the tender medium-rare wagyu which has a nice balance of lean and fatty layers. Cabernet Sauvignon, which is lighter than Shiraz, works well with the red meat as it opens up to show a beautiful core of rich blackcurrant and plum flavours. Smooth and complex, dense and balanced! 

Premium Chocolate and French Macaron
Wine Pairing: Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel

Lastly, we are amazed that the Double Barrel wines go equally well with desserts. Unlike the usual sweet desserts, the premium dark chocolate is well complemented with the rich dark fruity flavour of Shiraz.

Tempted to try Jacob's Creek Double Barrel wines? Perhaps you should experience it yourself
and enjoy the sensory journey with these amazing quality innovative wines.
