How AmLife Helps You to Sleep Well For Mental Health?

Happy World Mental Health Day!
Reading is therapeutic to me, how about you?

I believe that 2020 is a challenging year for everyone given the Covid-19 pandemic. Fate hits us in various aspects of life such as loss of jobs, relationship breakdowns, etc and this situation is aggravating each day. A survey by The Ministry of Health Malaysia showed that by 2020, mental health conditions are expected to be the second biggest health problem affecting Malaysians after heart diseases.

So the big question is, how can we stay positive throughout the hard times and build a better mental well-being? 

In conjunction with World Mental Health Day (WMHD), AmLife International Sdn. Bhd rolled out its WMHD showcase “Sleep Well For Mental Health” covering 6 countries - Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Hong Kong and Taiwan - to promote better mental health conditions. 

Mr. Lew Mun Yee, Founder & President of AmLife said good quality sleep improves our psychological and mental health and vice versa. AmLife stresses sleep education which is part of our business philosophy.

AmLife has engaged Ms Elizabeth Huxtable, a certified Sound Therapist and Dr. Luke Wang, a Taiwan Specialist in Psychiatric, Sleep Medicine, and Geriatrics to share some insights into mental health.

It is not just the amount of hours of sleep you have each day, but also the quality of sleep you have over a long period of time. Dr. Luke shared, “One need to sleep well to improve mental health, which in turn gives rise to a healthier body."

Poor sleep quality can lead to:
❤ Impairment of brain plasticity
❤ Disruption of stress and inflammatory system
❤ Alzheimer Disease
❤ Increase in high blood glucose
❤ Poor metabolic rate and increase in obesity

So here comes the frequency to the rescue! Do you know that sound frequency can affect the nervous system and can have positive healing effect on the mind and body?

Mr Lew and Elizabeth showcase the AmLife DeepZleep Amsonic with regenerative sleep technology.

AmLife introduced its DeepZleep AmSonic solutions - a regenerative sleep technology from Japan which combines Electric Potential Therapy, Thermal Therapy and AmSonic Frequency Therapy – all in a bedding form.

The AmSonic Frequency Therapy is the latest Japanese technology which harnesses the frequency of nature and spiritual healing music to harmonize the body frequency and sync it with the natural environment to enable the body to relax, relieve tension and goes into deep slumber so your body can experience recuperative and health rejuvenation capabilities.

The DeepZleep Amsonic is now available in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Hong Kong.
 
With AmLife's AmSonic Frequency Therapy Sleep Device, everyone can enjoy recharging your physical and mental health in sleep for an all-rounded physical and spiritual well-being.

[REVIEW] Weekend Staycation at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection

A weekend well-spent brings a week of content! Personally, what I look forward the most is a chillax weekend where I can: 

❤ Wake up to the comfort of plush, velvety pillows
❤ Enjoy a morning swim in the infinity pool
❤ Brunch in style at a fine restaurant
❤ Have a quick afternoon workout at the fitness center
❤ Tuck into a sumptuous rooftop dinner amidst the city skyline
❤ Hit a rooftop bar for the unobstructed views of downtown KL

It is a dream come true for me as my weekend is made perfect throughout my
2D1N staycation at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection (Hotel Stripes). 

What makes Hotel Stripes stand out in the ever expanding hospitality scene in the city is the distinctive vibe and contemporary chic character it exudes as part of the Autograph Collection Hotels. From the award-winning architecture and rooftop pool to the exquisite culinary offerings and impeccable services, Hotel Stripes has wowed me in every aspect. 

Studio Room at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection 

Among the types of bespoke rooms and suites, we opt for Studio, a spacious 409-sqft room which features a palette of warm tones and timeless layout which makes it suitable for both business and leisure stay. 

Our room is bestowed with the beautiful view of the magnificent KL Tower.

While the room is well-furnished with a king bed, sofa bed, 46-inch TV and other modern amenities, the seamless high-speed complimentary Wi-Fi is also worth a mention (Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to see my IG stories throughout the stay :P). 

Perhaps it is just me being particular with nitty gritty things such as the lighted makeup mirror, robes, slippers, etc, but all these little details add up to the maximum comfort and convenience I'd love to enjoy in a hotel. Thumbs up to Hotel Stripes for the quality and exceptional attention to details. 

"We Grill, You Chill" Sizzling Dinner @ Brasserie 25
RM120+ for two
Fridays and Saturdays
Two seatings available: 6pm–8pm & 8.15pm–10.15pm 

For dinner, we have decided to dine in-house as they are having a BBQ dinner set promo. What's included? Bottomless mocktails, a barbeque selection of meats and vegetables complemented with homemade sauces, and British-inspired dessert. All we need to do is chill while the experts grill our sizzling meats and prepare our barbecue combos at Brasserie 25. 

Bottomless Downtown Fizz Mocktail - Brasserie 25's iconic welcome drink
made with jasmine, lychee and Kickapoo soda.

When the aromatic array of sizzling treats is served upon us, we are totally blown away by the sizeable portion and variety which can easily feed 3. 

The hearty and protein-packed platter features tender black pepper beef ribs, grilled lamb, crispy fried chickens, chilli dogs, and fish and chips. For the sides, the menu includes slightly charred vegetable kebabs, grilled corn, salads in jars, crispy thin fries, onion rings and toasted garlic bread. I am sure even the most picky eater can find something they like from this platter. 

While the juicy meats are already bursting in flavours, I don't mind pairing them with the bespoke condiments such as salt in various flavours (lemon, basil and chilli) as well as homemade curry mayo, chimichurri, traditional BBQ sauce and an Asian-inspired sauce reminiscent of our favourite satay peanut sauce. Perfect to excite the palate with an added twist of flavours!

Bread and butter pudding topped with vanilla ice-cream makes the perfect ending to our dinner. 

Do check out the Looongest Hour promotion where the house beer and wine are at a one-for-one deal!

Cocktail Time @ Man Tao Bar 

After dinner, we head up to Man Tao, the nook-inspired rooftop bar at Hotel Stripes, to enjoy a panoramic view of downtown KL creative cocktails, soothing tunes and easy going vibes. It can get a little busy up here, so head up early to get the best spot. What a relaxing experience to complete our urban escape!

American Breakfast Set @ Brasserie 25

After a good night rest, the next thing I want to do is to tuck into a hearty breakfast amidst the cozy and relaxing ambience at Brasserie 25. There are few breakfast set options available on menu, and we opt for something western to fuel the day. 

Rooftop Infinity Pool with a breathtaking view of the city 

Before heading home, a morning swim at the rooftop pool overlooking Kuala Lumpur’s 
dazzling skyline is definitely a must-do! 

Fitness Center of Hotel Stripes - Clean, well-equipped and spacious for guests. 

Throughout the weekend stay, the in-house facilities be it the gym, pool or dining establishments had provided us a complete experience without having to step out of the hotel at all. But if you like, the local attractions such as street food, art galleries, shops, markets and legendary landmarks are just a stone throw away. How convenient it is to explore this vibrant city! 

VERDICT
If you are looking for a quality stay with topnotch experience be it the comfortable room, delicious BBQ dinner or relaxing swim at the rooftop pool, Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection is definitely something you can consider. 

Personally, my experience here is nothing short of comfort, uniqueness and excellent service. Hotel Stripes tops my list of favourite spots for weekend getaways in KL. 

Highly recommended for leisure stay, business trip, or any special occasions.

[HAIR] Review: deBalets (小巴黎) Perfume Haircare

Do you know the importance of choosing the right haircare for your hair? ❤ There are so many hair products out there, but not all of them suit your hair needs. I am lucky to stumble upon deBalets Perfume Haircare that allows my hair to become healthier and smells better than before. 

Just a quick intro of deBalets (小巴黎) --- Co-founded in Taiwan and Malaysia, deBalets hair range is made by an OEM with over 30 years of experience. The ingredients used by deBalets are all botanical and natural, hence it is safe for even the most sensitive scalp.

The best part of deBalets? It adds various types of boutique brand perfume into the haircare. The fragrance exuded from the hair after using deBalets is just amazing, and it is as close as the original branded scent itself. 

Look at the feminine packaging of the products - so sweet and fashionable. 
No doubt it can be a fashion accessory and decoration in our bathroom. 

Sebum Control Shampoo (450ml) @ RM95.00
(Direct Link: https://bit.ly/3d1M9UR)

To treat my oily, itchy scalp condition, I choose the Sebum Control Shampoo which has a similar scent to Jo Malone! Its herbal formula helps to effectively deep-cleanse and remove impurities from the scalp and hair, while balancing sebum secretion and adding volume to the hair.

How to use: 
❤ Apply on wet hair and scalp then rinse off. 
❤ Repeat the step for double cleansing purposes. 

Feel after use: I enjoy the refreshing and cooling sensation on the scalp, as if I have just gone for a hair spa treatment! It makes my hair feel "less burden" and more airy after use.

Scent: It is a pure enjoyment when washing the hair because the shampoo smells so good like Jo Malone. And the fragrance can last for 24 hours -- so, better use this before going for a date ya 😛
 
Perfume Conditioner (Freesia) (450ml) @ RM95.00
(Direct Link: https://bit.ly/33xH4k0)

Given my hair condition that is constantly exposed to chemicals and heat, a good hair conditioner is my hair's best friend. de Balets Perfume Conditioner is something I need as it helps repair and replenish moisture, while restoring shine, moisture and smoothness of the hair.

How to use:
❤ Apply on cleansed, wet hair for at least 30 seconds before rinsing off.

Feel after use: My thick and frizzy hair is more manageable after using this for 2 weeks now. While it heals the dry ends, my hair feels like regaining its "life" once again. 

Scent: Freesia Perfume Conditioner exudes the same fragrance as Sebum Control Shampoo, which is similar to Jo Malone English Pear perfume! The English pear and freesia scent is so delighting and refreshing. Again, the fragrance is so long-lasting and it makes me feel good all day long. 

deTangling Caviar Hair Mask (for Thick & Stiff Hair) (150ml) @ RM80.00
(Direct Link: https://bit.ly/30xLAgE)

Specially for thick and stiff hair roots, it is a saviour to my dry and damaged hair. Free from heavy metal and other harmful ingredients, the luxurious caviar hair mask is designed to revive essential hydration and repair damaged hair keratin bonds, allowing the hair to restore its shiny, healthy and lustrous state.

How to use: 
❤ Apply on wet hair and cover with a hot towel / shower cap. Leave in for 3-5 minutes, then rinse off. 
❤ Use twice a week for maximum result.

Feel after use: Having healthy hair really makes me feel more beautiful, especially when it gives the hair up to 48 hours smoothness and better resistance to future damage. 

Scent: French fruity scent which is made from a cocktail of tangerine, milk, apple, rose and peach with an earthy base of sandalwood. 

VERDICT
Overall, deBalets is not your ordinary open-shelf brand.
It is a premium spa-grade haircare that is usually used in salons to pamper ourselves.

deBalets products are available online, and currently they ship to Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. 
Enjoy FREE shipping in Malaysia for orders above RM99.
