Clinique Even Better Essence Lotion

The weather has been terrible for the past month, with the haze, less or sometimes no rain at all :( and now water rationing may end only at the end of the year?! I hate this dry month. I wish it ends faster as my skin is now more dry than usual :( And you know, face is very important for me when Im out and about as dry skins makes me age faster and being in the late 20s is not helping!!! NO WRINKLES ALLOWED!

I just recently discover this NEW breakthrough product by Clinique which is called Even Better Essence Lotion which contains NMF Complex which unlocks skin's moisture potential so that your skin is instantly hydrated with long term improvement in moisturization.

Ive been using this product for a week now. The texture is soft and luminous and totally fragrance free. First thing that I notice after applying it right away is how my face was instanly brighten, soften and more radiance. It has a slight glow into it. I really hope this product will help me lighten my acne scars abit. Most important right now is hydration due to the weather. It is said that you can see results in just 4 weeks! 

 Just wakeup no makeup face with bed head :p

After applying Even Better Essence Lotion, Instant results for a more moistured, hydrated and fairer skin :)


If you really dont believe, you can go to the CLINIQUE counter and ask for sample first, try it straight on your face, you can immediately feel the change. Yeah, go to a shopping mall without makeup once in a while is OK/WORTHIED :) if you want to find a good product, right?


If you are already wearing makeup, ask the promoter girl to help you cleanse your face at the cheek or forehead area just to test, then apply makeup again later

For me, knowing the ingrdients is really important. You must know what you are going to apply to your face and what it helps to do. Here are some of the ingredients used for this new breakthrough product :

Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Extract, Pyrus Malus Fruit (Apple) Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Extract and Sodium PCA: this NMF Complex helps skin maintain optimal hydration, leaving skin plump and supple.

Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract: for improved moisturization.

Pyrus Malus (Apple) Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis (Root) Extract, and Cucumis Sativas (Cucumber) Extract: rich in antioxidants, this botanical blend of well-known brighteners help to improve skin’s clarity and radiance.

Ergothioneine and Artemia Extract: restores brightness and luminosity to skin.
Sucrose and Caffeine: known for their calming and soothing benefits, these ingredients help to reduce the effects of skin irritation due to stress or stimuli.
Cladosiphon Okamuranus Extract and Algae Extract: these algae extracts have been shown to provide exceptional calming and soothing benefits.
Tamarindus Indica Seed Extract: derived from the fruit of the tropical tamarind tree, this polysaccharide has been used in many cultures for its medicinal and anti-inflammatory properties.

For my daily regimen, I use it twice daily after cleansing, just pour it in to your palm around 2.5cm in diameter and just gently pat it around your face and not forgetting your neck as well and try avoiding the eyes area. You can follow with moisturizer and Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector for a better and faster results.
You know how our skin, being asian is more sensitive and susceptible to irritation and dehydration due to our skin physiolody as we were born with thinner skin barrier, with this product specifically formulated by Clinique for Asian skins to instantly hydrate, imporves skin texture, brightens and restores skin's luminosity. What a steal right? Also what I like about it that it has anti-irritation agents to calm and soothe our skin in this horrible weather! And therefore moisture is retained. In just 2 weeks you can see a healthy radiance and in 4 weeks, it will regulate the skin's texture and hello to a softer and smoother new skin!

Even Better Essence Lotion is available at Clinique counters nationwide at RM 125.

Candy Barrisma Show Tour

Few weeks ago I attended the Candy Barrisma Show Tour event which was held in Pavilion, KL after a sucessful tours in countries like New York, Singapore, Beijing, Milan. We, Malaysians were lucky indeed that Furla has choosen to do a show tour event in Kuala Lumpur. If you are an avid reader of my blog, you know that Ive mention the Candy Sunset Bags before which I love, but too bad ithey didnt have the colour I wanted when I was in my honeymoon in Italy.

As I walk into the event stage, I love how it was designed, as you can see so many colourful Candy bags all around!

Which one do you fancy?

I spotted this Tiffany Robin Blue Egg colour which I like! Almost similar as mine :) But this come with accessories! How cute!

There were a lot of clebrities like Patricia K, Nelydia Senrose, Yana Samsudin and bloggers like Jane Lua, Audrey and Nana to name a few. The event started with a speech by Mr. Eraldo Poletto, the CEO of Furla Itlay followed by His Excellency Mr. Mario Sammartino's. The highlight of the night were where they have a few celebrities like Yeo Yann Yann, Diana Danielle, Anzliza Nasir, Little Starlet Crystal Lee and Zee Avi on stage to perform an ultra creative assemble of the Candy bags utilising materials and props from the Sissi Kit with the help of students from Lim Kok Wing University which they get to desogn their own interpretation of a Candy bag.

You can never get enough of these candy bags!

I was one of the lucky bloggers who was gifted a Spring Summer 2014 Furla Candy bag from their “ Up in the Sky” Collection. The collection was very much inspired by the air, the naunces of the sku, the horizon reflected in the sea, the wind on the beach: a desire for a carefree escape and sophisticated creativity pervades the Furla collection for their Spring Summer 2014. The iconic Candy Bag takes on new meaning, combining the transparency of PVC on a leather base, for must-have accessories reflecting a skillful balance between heritage and experimentation. 

 Not forgetting the photowall where you hashtag #furlacandymy in your instagram, guest will have their pictures printed instantly

Thank you for choosing Kuala Lumpur :) 

Here are some bags which catches my eyes :) 

FURLA is located at 2.42.00, Level 2, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur.

I've been married for a year plus now and being a housewife is not easy. My daily routine includes checking emails, clean the entire house and then start on whatever project that I'm working on. I do cook at times and this is the hardest part. Many of you know that I don't cook or I can't really cook well and my husband is an excellent cook, not to mention my mom and my mom in law are great cooks as well. Oh yeah, not forgetting my sister! It seems like I'm the lousiest woman at cooking, haha!

My mother in law taught me a lot about cooking actually, but most importantly, the very basic step before cooking. She said to always wash the vegetables / meat that you bought and store in a tupperware before putting it in the fridge. Trust me, before I know about that, I normally just stack everything I bought from the grocery shop to the fridge, including the packaging... which is SO WRONG! No wonder my food “ died” so fast in my fridge! Speaking about fridge, did you know that SHARP fridge comes with Plasmacluster Ion Technology which eliminates 99% bacteria and 97% mold in your fridge? Resulting to a longer and fresher food, free from contaminants!

I was introduce to the Sharp Dual Swing Door which is easily accessible from LEFT and RIGHT! So now you dont have to worry about locating your fridge anywhere. You may also ask, what if you try to open both doors at the same time? The answer is, one side will open first and there is no way you could open both at the same time :)

I went to the SHARP showroom and did a video for you all to watch!

For me and Marcus, we both have back problem and what we like about this fridge is that the fridge is on top and the freezer is at the bottom! By placing the fridge compartment on the top, it eases the burden of frequent bending down to reach for your vegetable.This help you with keeping or taking your food with natural posture, less bending because normally we use 70% of refrigerator compartment & 30% of freezer in a day. Good idea right? It also comes with the Hippo-mouth Vegetable Case which is a large space specially for veges and they also have this Kangaroo Pocket feature which allows storage for large and small bottle water!

Normally, conventional refrigerators require 2 actions of opening the door and then draw out the freezer compartment, but with Sharp's Dual Swing Door Refrigerator, it takes only one action to draw out the freezer compartment.

Other inventions that I like would be the door alarm which when you forgot to close the fridge properly more than one minute, an alarm sound will alert you! Not forgetting the 7 levels adjustable shelf for your to fit your large items :)

Sounds like a dream fridge, right?

Fashion :

Loving Zuhair Murad Pre Fall 2014 :)

Movie : 

This particular movie was introduced by my elder brother 


Freaking funnyyyyyyy LOL! It's a must watch! The whole movie is in Spanish and Will Ferrell never fails us! He is so funny! Highly recommended for a good laugh :) Btw, did you know that it took one month for Will Ferrell to learn Spanish? :)

Music :

On repeat mode :

Happy Pills by Norah Jones

Heard it on the radio and immediately asked Jasiminne to find out what song is it using some music app! Been listening to it ever since :) A nice happy chill song to make my mood good :) cos it's been a bit bad lately ( husband complain jorrrrr ) haahahhaha :P Sorry love!

Food :

Oppss... sorry no new findings at the moment.
Sorrrryyyy :/ Marcus been cooking and we are into veges now! 

Gossip :

OMG I DIDNT KNOW THAT CARA DELEVINGNE is dating Michelle Rodriguez ( fast & furious actress ) Such a shocker!

Random thoughts :

Marcus and I love ASNTM!!!!!!! hahhhahhahaha! WE love Team Sheena and Team Nicole! I personally think that they modelled best! I actually think that Sneha (India ) hair was very beautiful until they chopped it off, she looks a bit weird but her face is so gorgeous and also, I didn't like when they highlighted Sheena's hair pink/red... looks more childish, I personally think she looks better with just platinum blonde hair

Mini Birthday/Valentine Holiday in Avillion

On my real birthday, Marcus took me to Avillion Port Dickson. It's been almost 3 / 4 years since we've been there and I remembered that we enjoyed Avillion very much.

This trip kinda bring back some old memories, we booked the same room ( premium water chalet ) which overlooks the ocean for more privacy and everything still looks the same.

The room was a bit old but it's still nice, we enjoyed the day bed a lot :)

I have to admit that the hotel is getting older :( Service isn't as good as before as well. We asked the concierge for a good seafood place and they replied with : 

McDonalds and Old Town is not far away -_-??

We decided to eat in and I ordered the Nasi Kampung! I remembered that it was good 3/4 years back and it's still good :) 

The rooms / interior might be old but the Avi Spa and Lounge is very new :) Its has quite a nice architecture :)

Chilling at Avi Lounge :) I could stay here!
Wanted to watch the sunset from here but it was booked for a company function
( Not happy )

Also, the Avi Spa was fully booked 
( Lagi not happy )

With Bambi :) Thank you again for the amazing presents guys!

Then it was straight to the adults pool! Yes, what I love about Avillion is that they have a massive kids pool and an adult pool which kids are not allowed! Only peacocks are allowed and the best part? 

It's a 24 hours swimming pool!

We did also went to the private beach, no one was there... and the ocean wasn't as clean...  a bit milky but it's alright. The breeze was good and the company was good till Marcus said there might be snakes around the bushes as he saw some trails! 

This Birthday and Valentine, Marcus got me a Saint Laurent Clutch :) 

Thank you baby 

Same like last time, we pop a bottle of champagne during sunset :) 
This time with Mumm, a gift from my older brother

Don't kill me for posting this picture yeah baby! 

It was overall a wonderful holiday with a lot of birthday wishes from you all at the stroke of midnight! Thank you for your messages, fb messages and whatsapp voice message! Many of my close friends didn't want to call as they know I'm on a mini romantic gateway... they only message me : Please make babies. HAhahhhahaa

But, all we did was...

Watch Revenge Season One! HAHAHAHAHHAHA

Too old.
