Sasatinnie Soy Milk Facial Mask

After a thorough Spring Cleaning this year 2014, I found this mask and started
using it already. It's a birthday gift from my sister, 5 pieces of masks in a box.

It's kinda surprising to know that the mask I've been keeping for a year has finally
put to good use and given me a tremendous good result. It reveals a fresh, radiant
skin that's healthy-looking and last long too. It is in fact one of the whitening
mask I'm looking forward to pamper myself nowadays. Grab it from SaSa!

YAKULT Seremban Factory Visit

Haha...I finally came to Yakult for a visit after having to wait for a year as last year I was too busy visiting Penang.
Early in the morning when I was sleeping blissfully with a sweet dream, I heard Rambo calling me "Good morning
Honey, wake up" that I gotta drag myself up away from the sweet dream. I took a morning bath fast and ready to go.

I have no choice as my dear Charmer reached to my place and she got very excited to visit Yakult Factory, even
Shan and Lynette couldn't join us that day. And I also brought along Bro.Chai Family to join in the fun with me.

This educational Yakult trip is inspiring enough to motivate me keeping healthy
everyday by taking Yakult. Sometimes I may forget until I feel discomfort only I
remember about Yakult. They served us chilled cold Yakult, fresh from the factory.
Obviously, we wanted to have more but we never ask for more as we have plan to buy more later. LeAnne even
told me she wanted the less sugar one like me so I suggested she took 3 stacks, each for herself, Lynette and her
parents as well. I told her to remind my sister who have stomach problem to take this Yakult, one bottle everyday.
She promised me she would and in fact after dinner that night, I saw her took one Yakult for her mom and I
praised her for being a good girl. I told my sister she needs to take this everyday with all the amazing benefits
sharing which I learnt from this wonderful presentation and she promised me she would. Health comes 1st
above everything else in the world. No health, no wealth, that's for sure!
This is the Yakult Network worldwide and when I was in Japan, I knew much about it and after watching NTV7
documentary show by Yakult, somewhere somehow I got to learn so much about Japan I wish to visit again soon.
Yakult history begins since 1930's, producing Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain good bacteria for healthy intestine. 

Everyday, we consume food that can be bad for our health. But it's not only food that can cause us bad health,
stress, taking medicines or antibiotics and ageing process can affect our daily lifestyle as well. And everything
we do should come in a balance so that it will not be disturbed, make sure our immune system are strong enough
to protect us from contracting infections, food poisoning and getting sick, or else you need antibiotics for that.

We don't need antibiotics but we need Probiotics daily from Yakult. Dr. Minoru
Shirota have created Yakult to contain '30 Billion Live, Good Bacteria' to improve
the balance of good bacteria in our intestines, scientifically proven beneficial for
good health in long run. Many hospitals providing Yakult for their patients too.
This cartoon from Japan I request the English version for my dear LeAnne(although she's good in Mandarin
also) is very interesting as the story summary gave a good moral lesson for them to understand what good
bacteria is all about, what they should take in their daily meals and why probiotics are important for them.   

Probiotics are important because it can improve bowel movement to avoid constipation and diarhea, reduce
toxins in our body and boost immune system to reduce the risk of infection and occurence of cancer cells.
Shamira told me she read my blog, I was kinda surprised and thanked her for the support anyway.
The Yakult packaging from all over the world, all look so cute and petite. Haha...Malaysia can't use the original
packaging from Japan as Vitagen has already used that packaging in Malaysia since 1970's. LeAnne enjoyed the
factory visit from watching the cartoon to making Yakult process visit at the factory. No pictures are allowed so
I can't share it here in my blog. I can always visit again next time but I would encourage you to visit it yourself.

The other products Yakult has been producing in Japan for their own market. I have seen some of it and I may
have tried some before. All are healthy and nutritious food and drinks for their own lucky Japanese people.
Leanne wrote in diary that she would eat more fish and veges, less meat from now on, I gave her A+ for that.
I'm a lazy lady but taking Yakult probiotics, one in my daily life should be easy
going for me as I kept it cold in the fridge for a yummy drink after meal, be it after
breakfast, lunch or dinner. Only 1/2 Yakult is good enough because that's all we need
in our body everyday, more of that would be wasted. 

Yakult can be consume for babies from 3 months onwards to old ones, everyday and it's better to chill it cold as
it's fresher and finish it at one go. I'm glad I attend the Yakult Factory, it definitely refresh my memory to keep
myself healthy and happy with life. I don't mind to visit again as I've gained so much with the valuable infos of
the making Yakult from the R&D to packaging process itself. Bravo Yakult for giving us good health, long lives!

AVENE Skin Health Workshop 2014

I never failed to attend the yearly workshop organized by Avene as I learnt so much about skin health and I got
very inspired every year getting to know my skin better. I remember last 2 years event in Times Square Hotel,
Jaclyn called me and ever since then, we met almost every year during Avene/Rene Furterer Hair Workshop. 

The most awaited session I've been waiting for the day as I love pampering myself with Avene Thermal Spring
Water over my sensitive skin, face to body. That morning I've travelled to Seremban with my dear Charmer,
it's hot and my body was kinda dehydrated caused by the Malaysia humid weather that's 36-40 degree celcius.

Spa pampering I've been looking forward to, in fact it's my daily hobby now as my fridge is full of masks that
I need to finish using by this year 2014. I always love Avene spray of Spring water all over my face and body. 
Kick start with an Avene Cleansing Water to remove my makeups and impurities from the day out. 

 I love it as it's hassle-free and feeling so clean even without using water, gently remove dirt from the skin
 and leaving my skin real smooth.

Double cleanse it with Avene Cleansing Gel, foams a little but not drying my skin
at all.

Aah, the love of my life product from Avene that never failed to calm and soothing
my skin all day long wherever I go and whenever I want to. No more sensitive skin! 

As usual, wet the tissue mask with Avene Thermal Spring Water for total pampering skin of your lifetime. blissful moments with all cover-up facial spa. So relaxing and soothing!

The whole range of Avene products that I've used during the workshop and I brought it all back for my travel use.
My skin was so hydrated and looking so radiant like I just went for a facial spa pampering, I wana sleep already.

The sharing session by bloggers who have tried Avene products for a period of time.

The Q & A session and giving gifts to the lucky participants.

The Avene Booth with full range of products waiting in line to be grab by consumers. I still have many Avene
products at home, waiting for me to use.
The Avene products display with my favourite SPF protection range along there. 

Although this time around Avene put the main subject of Acne skin health more with Cleanance blemish-prone
products introduction, but I still enjoy and learnt a lot from this workshop. I would say I fully recommend those
having acne skin to use this range as I'm also using Avene skincare when my skin tend to be sensitive at times.

NEUZELL Oxygen Bubble Cleanser

Thanks Neuzell for the complimentary Oxygen Bubble Cleanser sent to me as I really love the green, effective cleanser that radiates my skin to perfection. I pump up to 3 times of this refreshing cleansing gel on my dry face, without water and the fine bubbles are forming slowly on my skin. Then, I rinse it off with water. I like it very much as it gently removes my makeup and any impurities during the day, leaving my skin totally clean, smooth and radiant.

I read that this cleanser actually enhances cell regenerative process with a boost of oxygen into the epidermal layers skin. I always love oxygen-based kind of products and I'm taking Cellfood oxygen water everyday for my health, beauty and wellness too, so it practically works well for me.And I love the reviving scent that awaken me all at once that can keep my skin hydrated as well. It's one of my favourite cleanser now...Haha. Check out my past blog on Neuzell Serum at

SevenFriday, Fresh From The Press

Daniel Niederer has turned his passion for industrial-looking mechanical timepieces into a serious business. Meet the man behind the scenes as he makes his way to our shores for the SevenFriday World Tour 2014.

Proving once again that the power of the web validates technical innovation, SevenFriday unleashes a couple of new marquees that promises the same industrial façade along with a little tinkering, coming hot on the heels of the P1, P2 and P3. What’s even more interesting is the fact that the brand’s founder and owner, Mr Daniel Niederer, has been travelling extensively to introduce SevenFriday to the world.

 Keen to share his experiences, Daniel Niederer will be in Kuala Lumpur on 20 February at the Bridge Bar, G Tower to expound on the growing appeal of SevenFriday. “It wasn’t just about flooding the segment with another sporty timepiece,” explains Niederer. “Rather, it was reconstructing the constituents of what wearing the future on your wrist looks like. Smart watches may be all the rage these days, but watch collectors will appreciate our evolutionary take on Swiss made mechanical watch.”

Amidst canapés and free-flowing drinks, a trendy crowd hungry for a new fashionable timepiece turned the anticipation at the party and extended SevenFriday’s triumphant streak after a strong showing down south. Yes, thanks for the viral capabilities of social media, the first batch of timepieces sold out within weeks after a global launch in December 2012 – there was a four month backorder in Malaysia alone.  

On a creative level it’s clear to see why the industry is paving the way for SevenFriday. Niederer has set new boundaries for what is possible and permissible in a watch. “We’re extremely pleased with what SevenFriday has accomplished thus far,” elaborates Niederer. “We couldn’t have asked for a better start for a brand still in its infancy. I’ve always been fascinated with the technical underpinnings that go into a mechanical watch and given the resources at our disposal I believe that what we’ve pulled off is a beguiling combination of mechanical artistry and an industrial edginess.”

His message is not to be afraid, but to pour all your ideas into a time-telling instrument and not hold back. There is hope that finding some way to break the rules is perfectly fine. And that is what Niederer is doing. He took notes and listened as a seasoned watch connoisseur and expert, and now he is doing what so many are afraid to do, strike out on his own. SevenFriday, is the birth of this vision.  

“Niederer plays it close to the chest when it comes to SevenFriday,” says Soemantri Kusumadi, director of TWB Marketing Sdn Bhd , Malaysia’s SevenFriday Distributor. “And when it’s your baby, you’ll steer the ship with everyone on board channelling the founder’s objectives. We are proud to be affiliated with SevenFriday and we believe that the brand will thrive in the years to come.”

What makes SevenFriday a fascinating watch for the young and affluent? The dial of a SevenFriday watch is made up of five layers which render cohesively an animated ballet of engineering competency that is a marvel to behold. The exposed escapement, 24-hour disk, and small seconds disk, working and jiving with the hour and minute indicators further give the watch a futuristic industrial visage. 

For one, SevenFriday’s iconic squircle watch case – a term coined from the words ‘square’ and ‘circle’ – used on every model, is the perfect medium in which to contain the technical flourishes such as the animation ring that since seen stainless steel, rubber and wood utilised as its insert.

To celebrate the brand’s sustained level of excellence, subdivisions within the P1 and P2 range are enabling new enthusiasts to join the fray and pick up their own unique watch that is both a must-have as well as a masculine conversation piece in any social setting – the P1-2 (Bright), P1-3 (Orange), P1-4 (Blue), P1-5 (Green), and P2-2 (Works) – will be officially launched in Malaysia.

Of these, the P1-3 (Orange) draws inspiration from the KUKA Robotics Corporation, an advanced German manufacturer of robotic industrial machines used in high-tech automation plants. Orange is the signature colour of the KUKA automatons and hence it’s usage on the P1-3’s watch case and dial. And of course, it tells the time.

From the launch of a new exciting watch brand to a mega bash at a members’ only venue, the launch of SevenFriday’s latest was a spectacular occasion bar none. SevenFriday is exclusively available at Red Army Watches Pavilion KL, Tropicana City Mall , One Utama Shopping Centre and Madison Bangsar Village II.
