Review: LUNIOR Deer Placenta, my Anti-aging Supplement

Having young and glowing skin is every girl's dream. I mean, who doesn't love staying youthful forever! I recently got this box of LUNIOR Deer Placenta Plus Enteric-Coated Soft Gel imported from New Zealand to try. 

Yes, you are reading it correctly: It is placenta from deer. But don’t worry, no deer is killed during the extraction of the placenta i.e. when the deer gives birth.

Is Placenta better than Collagen?

People used to consume collagen for anti-aging benefits, but now placenta is a more effective ingredient for a more holistic effect on the skin and body. How so?

Collagen
 Helps replenish the declining amount of collagen in our body as we age, and improves skin externally.
VS
Placenta
 Richer in essential proteins and active cells which our body requires to
rejuvenate, regenerate and slow down aging process internally.

Conclusion: So if you prefer a more effective supplement that works from inside out for a better overall health,
Placenta is probably a better option.

Do you know that New Zealand produces the world’s BEST Placenta?

All thanks to New Zealand’s natural environment with minimal pollution, advanced technology facilities and good reputation on healthy product manufacturing. Hence, LUNIOR Deer Placenta uses only those extracted from the deer in New Zealand.

Technology wise, it uses the renowned freeze-drying method to preserve the placenta live cell up to 3-4 years, ensuring freshness and efficacy of the extract.

On top of that, LUNIOR Deer Placenta consists of 4 natural, antioxidant-rich ingredients including:-

(1) Deer Placenta Live Cell (鹿胎盘活细胞)
Promote skin renewal, energy level and stamina

(2) Lyophilised Royal Jelly Powder (冻干蜂王浆粉)
Improve strength and vitality

(3) Grape Seed Oil (葡萄籽油)
Protect arteries, maintain good vision and slow skin aging

(4) Squalene (深海鲛精)
Improve metabolism and defense system

Ingredients are clearly written behind each strip / on the box:
100mg deer placenta extract
200mg grape seed oil
180mg squalene
50mg lyophilised royal jelly powder

Content: Each box of LUNIOR Deer Placenta consists of 30 softgels, all sealed safely in each strip.


How to use: Consume 1 soft gel once daily after meal (Twice daily for quicker result)

It looks similar to any ordinary softgels - Scentless (as the ingredients are locked in the softgel) and easily swallowed with water. Convenient to bring along for travelling too.

To be honest, it is my first time trying out placenta supplement and I am abit skeptical initially as it is not something "common" we usually take. But I am pretty satisfied with the result on my overall wellbeing result after consuming the softgels.

The first thing I realise is lesser pimples popping out on my skin despite of all the late nights I stay awake. And the skin starts to gain natural glow slightly, while the skin texture appears smoother.

I notice there is lesser mood swing and menstrual pain during the “time of the month” too. Not sure if it is the overall effect of having deer placenta thou.

Apart from reversing aging, LUNIOR Deer Placenta also brings us back to the healthiest state by improving:
 Cell repair / regeneration
 Sleeping quality
 Blood circulation
 Immunity
 Sexual performance
 Healthy skin
 Burning of body fats

...as well as reducing the following:
 Stress
❤ Heart disease
 Sebum production / Open pores
 Wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, dark spots, etc
 Menstrual and menopause discomfort

For those with targeted issues such as post-delivery scar, hair loss problem, skin pigmentation, etc,
you can try LUNIOR Deer Placenta too.

LUNIOR is scientifically proven and well recognised for its safety too.

Verdict: In short, if you need something scientifically proven effective and safe to stimulate growth, cell reproduction and regeneration for health and beauty purposes, then LUNIOR Deer Placenta may be a great option.

LUNIOR Deer Placenta Softgel retails at RM688 per box (30 soft gels in a box) / RM388 per box if you buy 3 boxes. Interested in the product? Find out more at:

2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay is in Malaysia!

Say Hi to Borobi, and welcome to the 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay!

It is such an honour for me to join the longest relay in Commonwealth Games history. The 230,000 km route of Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) began at Buckingham Palace on Commonwealth Day (13 March 2017), then continues with 70 Commonwealth nations in 388 days and will finally end at Gold Coast for the Games’ Opening Ceremony.

The QBR has been the traditional curtain raiser to every Commonwealth Games since the Cardiff 1958 British Empire and Commonwealth Games. Of course, it has made a stop at Malaysia too!

Flying in from Sri Lanka, the Baton is here in Kuala Lumpur from 16–21 October 2017 before going to the next stop, Brunei.

We are lucky to meet Borobi, the blue surfing koala and official mascot for the 2018 Games, flying in specially from the Gold Coast to join the QBR in KL Sports City.

Rimau, the official mascot for the Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games and Asean Para Games
is joining the fun as well!

Not forgetting to mention Wira, the orang utan who was the official mascot
when we were a proud host of the Kuala Lumpur 1998 XVI Commonwealth Games.

Our newly revamped National Stadium in KL Sports City, Bukit Jalil is the venue for this significant event.

We have plenty of friends of the media, fellow national athletes, representatives from Australia
as well as top Malaysian leaders with us at the QBR too.

Just a lil’ heads up about the XXI Commonwealth Games.

It will be held from 4–15 April 2018, involving more than 6,600 athletes and officials with thousands of international visitors expected to flock to Gold Coast in Australia, a popular holiday city known for its golden beaches, world-class attractions and easy-going lifestyle.

In the upcoming Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, we will see our national athletes stepping onto the competition arena for various sports once again, including Badminton, Track Cycling, Weightlifting, Gymnastics, Diving, Shooting and Lawn Bowls. Are you excited yet?

Let’s take a closer look of the GC2018 Baton!

Marking the 500 Days to Go milestone until the Commonwealth Games, 20 November 2016 was the day of unveiling the bold and beautiful Baton to the public.

Made of macadamia wood and reclaimed plastic collected from Gold Coast waterways and beaches, the Baton’s design is inspired by the region’s vibrant spirit, indigenous heritage and with sustainability in mind.

We are proud to see our country's name engraved among all 70 Commonwealth countries' name, on a metal spine through the middle of the Baton.

The Baton will return to the Gold Coast in April 2018, having been touched, admired, photographed, filmed and loved by so many people from all over the Commonwealth.

Although it is a short run with the Baton, I feel so privileged to have this once-in-a-lifetime experience to join QBR!

For those who will be visiting the Gold Coast to support Team Malaysia at the Games next April,
it's time to discover more about things you can do in Gold Coast:

Cosmopolitan beach lifestyle
 Vibrant café hopping scene
 Colourful weekend markets
 Cuddle a koala
 Traverse the top of Q1, Australia’s tallest residential building on the SkyPoint Climb
 Hot Air Ballooning
 Thrilling theme parks
 Skydive, surfing....and more!

There goes my wishlist: Gold Coast in 2018!

ProductNation: No More Shopping Dilemma!

Shopping Dilemma ; How often do you face it?

I believe you and I have been through the time where we are indecisive especially when it comes to purchasing high value items or products that we are not familiar with. Well, I think that certain things require much consideration before committing, for instance buying a new mobile phone.

We research, find out and list down the best products that we are looking for. Not forgetting to make sure that these products can be found here in Malaysia instead of overseas too. Do you agree that this is a painstaking / time-consuming process? 

Luckily I have stumbled upon ProductNation recently and find it pretty useful. Instead of doing all the researches myself, I can have this website to help me with all the latest product reviews and roundups based on:

❤ Right prices
❤ Latest trends
❤ Consumer's favourites
❤ Timely review
❤ Product availability in Malaysia


You can call me lazy, but I love how ProductNation helps to "solve" my indecisiveness. For example, I am totally lost when it comes to choosing the right home appliances that fits into my daily needs. They have some of the best home appliances reviews in Malaysia, so I know where to get recommendations for microwave ovens, air purifiers and more.  

Unlike some price comparison sites, this one has a comprehensive brand and price listing while it gives a brief comparison of the key features of each product. Personally, I find it useful as a quick guide to roughly gauge what are available in the Malaysian market that fit our requirements and budget. 

Example of Tech Tips: 8 Best Gaming Laptops For Every Type of Gamer

Apart from household buys, the website also gives a couple of good tips / comparisons of gadgets, cars and beauty products. I am sure these are the things that revolve around our daily lives. Hope you find this website as useful as I do! 

Feel free to share with me if you have any thoughts :)

LOFT Japanese Lifestyle Pop-Up Store @ SOGO Kuala Lumpur

HELLO, LOFT! 

Have you heard of LOFT, the famous lifestyle store in Japan? Celebrating its 30th anniversary, currently it has over 100 outlets in Japan, and is a popular shopping haven for both locals and tourists who love functional yet creative products.

GOOD NEWS! LOFT is having its first pop-up store in Malaysia,
right here at SOGO Shopping Complex in the heart of Kuala Lumpur,
from 13 October to 5 November 2017. 

How to get there: SOGO shopping complex is easily accessible via public transport.
Hop onto LRT Sentul Timur line and get down at LRT Bandaraya station.

Visit LOFT Pop-up Store at 3rd Floor, SOGO KL

With the bright neon yellow signage, you just can't miss the LOFT pop-up store in this mall. In Malaysia, LOFT brings to us its best-selling products including a wide range of "zakka", miscellaneous lifestyle products of excellent quality and rich culture

A little background of LOFT Japanese specialty store chain.

Among the best-selling products, the top 3 items that you would probably buy as souvenir
from Japan are now here in Malaysia! So, save a trip to Japan and shop here instead :P

No. 1 Bestseller: FACE MASK!

"Design Face Pack" is a brand introducing the "face that represents Japan" through face mask. Here they have Doraemon, Doremi, Chibi Maruko, Arale, Dragon Ball and Minion designs! SO CUTE right? It not only looks good on the face, but also gives collagen and moisturising benefits to the skin.

Spoilt with choices, I seriously don't know which is my favourite and end up buying all of them!

No. 2 Bestseller: Scrubbing Brush

Packed like a doughnut, it is actually an useful scrubbing brush for the stubborn dirt.
And the Japanese loves it so much - Definitely every household's No.1 must-have item!

No. 3 Bestseller: Traditional Japanese Fabric Goods

From coin purse and mirror to handkerchief and hand-fan, everything is made in Japan using high-quality cotton. Plus, the fabric design is so dainty! Great as gifts / collectibles :) 

Japanese Beauty Products: Makeup, Skincare, Body Care and Hair Care 

Do you know that Japanese stationery is equally famous too?
Time to stock up yours here!

I have spotted some THERMOS flasks / coffee bottles on the rack too. The coffee bottle is something interesting that is currently not available in Malaysia yet -- It helps coffee drinkers to store warm coffee in the bottle without creating a caffeine stench in the bottle. How cool is that!

Assorted Drinking Mugs in Quirky Designs

Japanese Trending Product:  Yawako Massage Ball, an incredibly versatile tool that you can use
on your back and neck as well as underneath your buttocks, feet, thighs, and more.

Japanese Cult Toy, "Sonny Angels": More gift ideas in the house!

Japanese Minimalist "SMISKI" Character Toy

People have been going crazy over Smiski, a tiny creature that lives in corners. Now it is available in various unique poses and more glow in the dark goodness from the tiny chaps. How adorable they are!

Japanese Metallic Nano Puzzles and Wooden Puzzles

More toys in the pop-up store: Kendama, Puzz-Ring, etc

Of course, there are plenty more interesting Japanese goodies
that you gotta check them out yourselves at the pop-up store!

Did I forget to mention that for SOGO members, you'll get 3x points for every Ringgit spent at LOFT?

Personal Experience: My Shopping Haul!
Let's see what I have gotten here: Face Mask and Japanese natural shampoos from RinRen.

The face masks are so irresistibly cute, so I have decided to try them all. Whereas the shampoo is something I have always been looking for -- Naturally made from raw Japanese materials, free from silicons and parabens. Hence it is more gentle and nourishing for the hair. 

First try on my Minion mask! Do I look like a Minion? 

The minion face pack looks interesting on the package, but when I put it on, I guess I just don't look like any of the characters from Despicable Me? But anyway, I love the quirky design and guess what, it even comes in banana scent!! 

As I leave the mask on my face for 15 minutes, I can really smell the aromatic banana flavour. And the effect of the mask is not bad -- Moisturizing and nourishing for the skin. Good for all skin types.

That's all about my shopping hall at LOFT. If you are a fan of Japanese products or a true believer of Japanese quality, then you gotta make a visit to LOFT and be impressed with the products here.

Don't forget to visit LOFT at:
SOGO Kuala Lumpur
3rd Floor, Fashion Arena
13 October - 5 November 2017
10am - 10pm
