Fashion Icons At The Starhill Gallery Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017



Starhill Gallery’s biggest fashion event of the year returns for the 7th year and promises to be even more dazzling as the organisers have planned a stunning four-day fashion showcase which will take place at Starhill Gallery’s Adorn Concourse from 12 April until 15 April 2017. The 1st day opening I couldn't make it but I was glad I made it for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounds for the Starhill SS Fashion Show this year.


The 4- day glitzy fashion event provided invited guests and media alike with the exclusive opportunity to view the latest collections from both international and local designer labels. The 2nd day comprising my favourite Italian Designer Valentino, Missoni, Kenzo, Sergio Rossi and Alexander McQueen for 2017 collection.


For a Fashionista who grew up with fashion for both local and international designers for more than 2 decades liao and used to Pou' here with my family plus friends for dining and shopping since in my 20's to 40's, I did my best to attend it for sure. Celeste Thoi's SS 2017 collection is colourful & wonderful to admire watching it gracing the red carpet as the opening of the fashion show with yummy food and cocktail. 


Starhill Gallery is Kuala Lumpur’s ultimate statement of taste and style in food,fashion, living, beauty and art. With 330,000 sq ft, Starhill Gallery is an exciting shopping destination in Malaysia providing a standard of privacy and exclusivity rarely seen in large shopping complexes. Nurita Harith's elegant collection is worth to invest for especially if you're into flamboyant and exuberant kinda stylish fashionista and needed extravagant designs to match your personality and status for exclusive events.


Starhill Gallery has seven themed floors that encapsulate a variety of experiences together with unparalleled dining experiences, some of the world’s most elegant fashion brands including DIOR, Louis Vuitton and Valentino, and exclusive watch and jewellery boutiques such as Bedat & Co. Richard Mile and Rolex. Syomirizwa Gupta's fashion style is so macho with cool hats, jackets, scarf and dress that can uplift you to feeling young and vibrant wearing his collection.


Listed as Asia’s Most Beautiful Mall by The Forbes Traveller, Starhill Gallery remains the ultimate shopping destination in Kuala Lumpur. Last but not least, the Debenhams fashion show with their latest Spring/Summer collection which is not to be missed for me as I always ended up shopping for some treats like shoes, bikinis, intimate wear and clothing for all the seasons of the year.


Haha..That's life, stay stylish and trendy with your own iconic fashion style you feel comfortable wearing and having the confidence to carry in your own signature personality. I don't fall in a Cougar personality but I chose to dress up myself as a Cougar that night as I always love animal prints clothing which are kept storing in my wardrobe and have exploded thousand times liao due to my over-shopping habit. Well, that's life to me. Fashion is all about passion and it's very subjective where there's no right or wrong in wearing it anyhow you like it to be as you please, as long you're wearing it comfortably confident that really matters!

HADA LABO'S All New AHA+BHA Face Wash To Combat Daily Pollutants



Hada Labo AHA+BHA Face Wash retailing at RM31.90 is made available at all leading pharmacies in Malaysia. Not only it managed to keep my skin deep clean from within, it also brighten up my skin radiantly without drying my skin at all. In fact, I quickly passed the Hada Labo AHA + BHA Oil Control Face Wash to my hubby as I knew he's a real fan of Hada Labo skincare, he's totally stoked about it. 

Having lived in the city, we are always exposed to the daily pollutants which are harmful to our skin. Excessive accumulation of pollutant particles on the skin surface not only clog pores, but also diminish one’s skin radiance. Therefore, a face wash containing anti-pollutant properties would be ideal as it serves as a shield to the skin to combat damages caused by toxins looming in the air. 

The latest Hada Labo’s AHA + BHA Face Wash functions as an exfoliator that not only helps polish away trapped dirt and impurities, but also cleanses your skin from deep within for a clearer, smoother and healthier looking skin.        

Available in two variants, namely the Hada Labo AHA + BHA Acne Control Face Wash and Hada Labo AHA + BHA Oil Control Face Wash, the all new Hada Labo Face Wash is specially designed using the formula;

·        Triple Anti-Pollution Formula
    This unique formula helps to purify and protect skin against environmental pollution by reducing the ability of polluted particles to adhere onto skin. It also works by removing heavy metal pollutants and forms a protective barrier to shield skin against any damages caused by pollution.

·         Double Action Exfoliating Formula
-    The Hada Labo cleanser contains AHA (Glycolic Acid) and BHA (Salicylic Acid) to help soften skin, gently remove dead skin cells, improve skin absorption and restore its natural healthy radiance.  

The Hada Labo AHA + BHA Acne Control Face Wash consists of the Acne Control Formula that is infused with Wild Pansy Extract to help fight pimples for a flawless, smooth looking skin. On the other hand, the Hada Labo AHA + BHA Oil Control Face Wash uses the Oil Control Formula which contains the Alpine Plant Extract to aid in controlling and balancing oil production in order to minimise the appearance of large pores for a fresher and more refined skin. Both variants come with a texture similar to the Bentonite Clay - a type of mineral clay derived from natural volcanic ash with high content of minerals to effectively absorb excess oil and at the same time removes dirt and impurities on skin.
The Hada Labo AHA + BHA Acne Control and Oil Control Face Wash is pH balanced and is free from any alcohol, colorant, fragrance and mineral oils. To achieve optimum results, use it together with other Hada Labo products.


Directions of use 
Just squeeze a small pea size that's sufficient for your face and neck use. Lather it with water and massage onto face, using gentle circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Recommended for daily use, day and night.

Hada Labo skincare philosophy:
PERFECT X SIMPLE
For ultimate perfection and ultimate simplicity

Hada Labo uses the finest, purest and highly effective ingredients to provide you with the ultimate result of beautiful skin. Inspired by traditional Japanese beauty wisdom, Hada Labo adopts a “no more no less” philosophy in the formulation of its products for the “perfect” ingredients ratio to give optimal results. Unnecessary additives, colorant, fragrance and mineral oil that will burden the skin are omitted. Only essential ingredients that are beneficial to the skin are retained to ensure maximum effectiveness – Only the best for your skin and nothing else...

Glad I could make it that day as the Supernova Diva Jacinta needs a driver to travel everywhere now. Haha...Thanks to my hubby Rambo who truly understand my passion in beauty for years already, coming to 2 decades of my life. 


This relaxing nail serum is best to use for bedtime mood to boost treats nails and cuticles for deep hydration with nutrient-rich actives, all in one luxe formula.  It’s time for a nail intervention. Flawless color laydown starts with healthy, moisturized nails. Overnight moisturizing treatments work wonders for skin and hair and now nails and cuticles can benefit from the rejuvenating results. It may looked like the Almond shape but mostly it's my own 'JC Nail Shape' design that I feel comfortable shaping for my nails all these years, thank God it's based on our free will to DIY our own nail art.



It’s the sleeping beauty secret for ravishingly resilient nails. Apply the serum to bare fingers and toenails or over a dried manicure and gently massage till it's fully absorbed. You can apply your favourite colours, stickers on your nails without any base coat also. Voila, super duper triple easy as ABC. Sally Hansen Moisture Rehab™ Overnight Nail Serum is available in April 2017 at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa Malaysia and Parkson selling at RM 39.90. Honestly speaking, I cannot live without this magical nail serum in my life now to keep my nails real healthy always. 


When American women want an ultra-stylish, salon-perfect manicure, they turn to Sally Hansen, the Number One Nail Brand in the USA.  As the most trusted choice for color and care in the U.S, the definitive home of the manicure. Sally Hansen leads the way in creating professional-quality nails at home.  Integral to the brand’s incredible success is its philosophy that nail polish should offer more than just stunning shades; it should also help fortify and protect so nails look sensational day after day after day.  


Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure™ boasts 7 benefits in one bottle, plus a flawless-finish brush for easy application and a salon-quality finish. The chip-resistant polish still features all of the elements you know and love: base coat, strengthener now featuring a keratin complex, growth treatment, salon color in runway-ready shades, top coat, and gel shine finish. Haha...I have tonnes of Sally Hansen color collections, many given to my Monkey Sister SHY also when she ventured into manicure business before she flew to Macau for work. More than 20 years already I have been playing with manicure and I seldom leave my nails got naked without colour/stickers clothing on it. 


For a long-lasting, salon-quality finish, you can try the Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear that has an exclusive Micro Shine complex formula that bonds to nails, forming a hard manicure layer on the nails.  The result is xtreme hard and xtreme shine manicure that lasts up to seven days. Nails not only look amazing dressed in stylish, glossy color but are also strengthened and protected for enduring beauty. These are the stickers especially the Butterfly I had revolved myself into this species of beauty in my 20's, Extreme Shimmer Wear, Salon Manicure and Gel Shine 3D Top Coat which I have pampered on my nails that fateful afternoon.


Complete Salon Manicure™, loved by millions of women worldwide, is now even better. Drawing from technological advances in the hair-care arena, the newly revamped formula now incorporates a keratin complex to help reinforce nail strength to resist breaking and chipping for up to 64% stronger nails and up to 10 days of chip-resistant wear. After completing my JC DIY Manicure art with thick GEL glossy touch on it, both the pretty manicurist and Christine said that my creation was nice and I thanked them blushingly. Sometimes my mom loved my nail art creations too and I taught her how to do it accordingly as she's a real nail art beauty aficionado where she can spend RM300+ for her mani+pedi CNY perfect nail art generously but it's totally worth it esp. when it comes with God of Prosperity, Dai Kat Dai Lei Mandarin Oranges etc.


Haha...It's a humbling manicure experience for me as I always treat every workshop to be my 1st class to learn from the experts, only then I'm able to learn new skills to better enhance new skills to add into my beauty skills. I had a great time with Sally Hansen that afternoon as I told Christine I can only attend it during lunch time, thanks for the wonderful experience and hope to attend it again soon.  The New Complete Salon Manicure With Keratin Complex are selling at RM 26.90 and it's available at Caring Pharmacy, Guardian , Parkson and Sasa Malaysia.

My Favourite Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser 2017



First and foremost, I can't express how happy I was that day receiving this Neutrogena Cleanser Set as I was looking for a complete set of cleanser for makeup remover to facial scrub for deep cleansing and it coincidentally reached to my doorstep at the right timing. I took the wonderful golden box set to Palace of the Golden Horses for my staycation weekend trip and started using it already on that night itself. I chose the 'Dry Skin Package' which consist of Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam Cleanser, Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub and Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser.


Usually when I makeup, I tend to remove my makeup with cleansing oil 1st, then I will double cleanse my skin with foam cleanser and triple cleanse it with hydrating gel cleanser just to make sure my skin is clean enough. Haha...I know it's very troublesome but no choice, I'm very fussy when it comes to face cleansing. Thank God this lovely blue packaging of Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam Cleanser managed to remove my makeup efficiently without drying my skin. I feel that my skin is clean enough without drying up my dehydrated skin.


My favourite Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser is definitely the Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub that not only smells divinely refreshing for me I can take forever to scrub my face and neck as long as I wanted to with the fine microbeads. Just squeeze an adequate amount sufficient for your face and neck use, spread it all over your face and neck and start to polish your skin gently. Haha...I enjoyed scrubbing my face for the 1st time in history, taking my own sweet time while enjoying my hot bath pampering that night. Usually when I scrub my face, I tend to scrub my face and neck like scrubbing the floor like that as I needed to make sure my skin is clean enough. With Neutrogena, I actually enjoyed polishing my skin gently happily.


I loved it so much I tend to remember using it everyday and surprisingly, it didn't dry up my skin at all but leaving my skin real deep clean, brighten up my dull skin radiantly and silky smooth like a baby. I totally fell in love with it real excitedly. Not only I fully recommended it to every beauty aficionados out there for both men and women, I highly recommended to everyone to get this fantastic cleanser of all time to keep our skin deep clean staying far, far away from blackheads and maintain smooth skin radiantly.

Polo Ralph Lauren Launched The 1st Free-Standing Boutique In Malaysia




Ralph Lauren Corporation (NYSE: RL), the leader in the design, marketing and distribution of premium lifestyle products, had recently launched its first free-standing store in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Glad I made it at the very last minute as the last time Polo invited me at Isetan KLCC, I couldn't make it. Polo Ralph Lauren is definitely one my favourite fashion brand in town for more than 15 years already. No doubt I even shop for Polo's classic, trendy brand from my homeland Malaysia to Spain during my Spain/Portugal holidays there.


The store successfully opened in January 2017 which features collections for men, women and children spanning across 5,108 square-feet. To celebrate the opening of the store, Polo Ralph Lauren hosted an exclusive launch party for members of the press, Polo Ralph Lauren customers and local celebrities. 


Malaysian singer and multi-award winning artist, Anuar Zain made his special appearance at the launch party. The crowd was serenaded by Anuar Zain with his pop song, “Kau Bunga Cintaku” and his cover song, “Moondance”. He ended his performance with his hit song, “Sedetik Lebih”, which drew the crowds’attention and excitement. Anuar Zain is one of my favourite singer since childhood days especially the Kain Pelikat song, where both my bestie Suzy and I loved singing it 'siap menari' with the sarong also. Those were the days, lovely memories with my good friends.



Both store and collections represents Polo Ralph Lauren’s timeless heritage and iconic sophistication, synonymous with American style. The store design fuses nautical touches with a unique mix of architectural elements from industrial New York City warehouses and refined prep schools, all long-time influences on the Polo brand. Now you can shop for men, women and kids' collection at one stop classy, luxury boutique whenever you plan to do a family shopping outing conveniently.


The store is located at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Lot 3.55.00 & 3.56.00, Level 3, 168 Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and is open daily from 10:00AM to 10:00PM.
