The Launch Of Japan's Legendary Skin Cream

Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream is the latest innovation skin cream after the success of producing the remarkable skin care Cure Aqua Gel that removes dead skin using activated hydrogen water. I was glad I came for this legendary skincare launch held at Tous Les Jours because I fully trusted Japanese technology in skincare products and living by using it faithfully for many years already. You can find both of these effective and efficient skincare that can delay your aging speed at SaSa Malaysia, check it out when you're there.

Water Treatment Skin Cream has 2 main usage where we can use it as a toner and an emulsion. The harmless cosmetic-grade sillicon covers your skin to maintain skin hydration for a smoother and oil free complexion. I have fallen in love with it I actually apply it on my face, neck and my whole after my bath. Feels cooling and hydrating my aging skin instantly like the maggi mee.

This lightweight moisturiser is specially formulated to battle against dry skin. The texture of the product feels like lotion rather than a cream with its high concentration of liquid, the cream has a high skin absorption rate. Not only it leaves my skin soft smooth like a baby skin, they also mentioned that it can actually helped to protect our skin from natural aging oxidation we're  facing everyday due to stress, free radicals and dehydration.

Apply a small amount on your skin, massage it with your fingertip and you can see water will emerge from the cream. As it consists of 75% of hydrogen water, Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream will speed up your skin's regeneration process, reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It penetrates into the skin effectively and will be able to keep your skin supple, firmer and evens out skin complexion. It is best to use both products together to see the instant result for clean, smooth and radiant skin that you're looking for. 

This CURE Water Treatment cream is gentle to the skin and also suitable for sensitive skin too. In fact I loved the fine molecules that managed to penetrate into my skin real quickly after a gentle massage, I feel so pampered like a Queen who's ready to get her blissful slumber sleep at night. It didn't feel sticky at all but leaves a smooth touch on my skin over the weeks. Try it, you'll love it too!

Launch of Blanc Coco Sparkling Coconut Water, Thai Coco Coconut Milk Beverages And Snacks

Blanc Coco, the world’s first sparkling 100% coconut water has been launched in Malaysia by Euro-Atlantic Sdn Bhd for Thai Coconut Public Company Limited. I was glad I made it to this authentically Thai event with Blanc Coco coconut water as the main superstar beverage launched at the Samplings On The Fourteenth, Berjaya Times Square Hotel. I enjoyed the authentic Thai cuisines that they have served us with free flows of yummy Blanc Coco coconut water to cool the spicy Thai delicacies in my body. I'm a fan now of Blanc Coco, it's so addictive but it's fine because it's healthy for me.

Coconut water is good for health and it obviously contained many health benefits that are beneficial for our bodies in the long run. I love taking coconut juice like drinking water to me and I like the ones from Thailand as it's sweet and juicy to the max. And I especially loved the roasted type one and will looked for it whenever I go for my Thailand holiday. In fact, I enjoyed taking coconut water everyday to cool and hydrating my heaty body and for slimming purposes. Haha...One of my best kept secrets in keeping my body healthy, slim and trim for many years with coconut water and I swear by it fully 100%.

A unique refreshing drink of rich and nutritious coconut water, it comes from the best kind of coconuts – the Nam Hom variety, grown in the Ratchaburi Province in Thailand. These special coconuts are harvested the traditional way from trees that thrive in saline, sustainable soil conditions and humidity in this province in Central Thailand. This pure, flavourful coconut water turns sparkling to enhance its texture and becomes the perfect and most delicious thirst quencher on its own or when dining. 

The Nam Hom coconut, hailed as “The King of Coconut” and reputed to be the best in the world, delivers a unique fragrant aroma to Blanc Coco 100% Sparkling Coconut Water, which cannot be found in other species of coconuts. There are 4 flavours in the range of Blanc Coco 100% Sparkling Coconut Water with Natural Flavour, Mango & Pineapple, Lemonade and Pomegranate. Thai Coconut Public Company Limited also produces under the Thai Coco label, Coconut Milk Beverage in durian, chocolate, coffee, mango and melon, besides its original flavour. There are also Thai Coco snacks like Roasted Coconut Bar and Coconut Chips in sour cream & onion, yoghurt and original flavours.

Blanc Coco 100% Sparkling Coconut Water, Thai Coco Coconut Milk Beverages and Thai Coco snacks are distributed in Malaysia by Euro-Atlantic Sdn Bhd, a leading importer and distributor of marine produce, specialty fruits and vegetables based in Kuala Lumpur.

Blanc Coco 100% Coconut Sparkling Water (275 ml) is retailed at RM7.50 per bottle and the Thai Coco Coconut Milk Beverage (280 ml) at RM4 a bottle. They are available at all leading retailers in Malaysia and can be purchased online at selected platforms. Try it, you'll love it too. When they mentioned the survey and research about Malaysians' preferences on the beverage choices saying that the Malays and Indians prefer the flavoured drinks while the Chinese would opt for the Blanc Coco 100% Coconut Sparkling Water, I totally agreed with them during the media press conference because as a Chinese myself, I prefer the pure 100% coconut juice like Blanc Coco Coconut Sparkling Water that instantly gave me the 'Umph' satisfaction after enjoying the cooling drink although I'm not a fan of sparkling water, the French's favourite, but Blanc Coco is my favourite now.

Good Food Indulgence - The Coffee Club JungCeylon Mall, Phuket Thailand

This time of my Phuket Holiday in Thailand staying at Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort & Spa, I know that they provide free
shuttle service to JungCeylon Mall so I've planned to come over for my daily shopping & dining indulgence. I saw this
Coffee Club situated strategically right in front of the largest shopping mall in Phuket at the corner side on the way
here before they dropped us at another shopping building near Robinsons. It's huge, you need at least 1 or 2 days to fully
cover this huge shopping mall. But I told Rambo, let's go enjoy some lunch & good coffee 1st before going for shopping.

The 1st thing that caught my attention is definitely the coffee selection and I ordered
Affogato TB140 (RM16.80) obviously. The espresso coffee is the best of the best I ever
had in my 40 years of life. I never fancy taking bitter espresso like Rambo. He liked it
a lot but this time, I super duper loving it to the max I finished it all inside my tummy.
Haha...Rambo also enjoyed it but I ordered hot water for him as he's not feeling so
well, no Beer or cocktails for him until he fully recovered. It's totally worth the price.
I actually asked what's their coffee brand so I can buy it for my daily intake at home
but the waitress told me that they have many kinds of coffee beans which came from Indo,
Brazil, packed in Sydney Australia and freshly-brewed for us. No wonder I told Rambo!

In fact it was too good to be true, I actually visited The Coffee Club again the next day because it had left such a
memorable yummy coffee injected to my fussy tastebud, we're back everyday. Haha...I ordered the same Affogato
and the Mama Nasi Goreng that we missed on the 1st day. I ordered this Pad Thai wrongly liao because not only
it tasted too sweet to my liking of Pad Thai which was supposed to be spicy and yummy, the noodle was not fried
to perfection at all. Too bad for me, I only took one bite and let Rambo finished it for me. Haha...He also agreed
with me that this Pad Thai is not as yummy as those we usually ordered from Thai Restaurant around the world. 

But lucky I ordered the Thai Baked Eggs with Garlic Bread as Rambo loves taking Garlic Bread a lot. He can
eat the whole Garlic Bread given to him. This special Spanish-styled set comes with rich Tomato Pesto sauce,
perfectly baked eggs with lots of veges inside that's fulfilling and wholesome healthy for health conscious me. I
enjoyed it very much and Rambo totally agreed with me too because he wanted to order this again the next day.
This western dish costs more expensive at TB295 instead of the one with Pork at TB195, it's fine as long it tasted
yummylicious, it's totally worthy of it. I knew this cafe long time ago but I never get the chance to stop by at all.
You can order Burgers, Fish & Chips, Thai food, Salads, Spaghetti etc. but surely it's added with Thai infusion.
As you can see, JungCeylon is a huge shopping mall, you can find any food you like and dine here. You name it,
they have it actually but it's their superb coffee that attracted me so much into trying out their every meals here
& we enjoyed the many choices of food selection offered. Mostly, we ordered western but mixed with Thai flavour
they mix & match into their good food superbly. Just like this Mama Nasi Goreng that comes with one of the best fried
chicken that Rambo loved so much, he wanted to order again when we came for the last day in Phuket even we're so
full with buffet breakfast spread at Wyndham Resort. Haha...It's definitely delicious but pricey at TB325(RM39). But
most importantly, we enjoyed the yummy food+coffee since we're on holiday so splurge & enjoy life to the fullest we can!

Kyushu Island - Kumamoto Prefecture Part 2

1st day arrived at Fukuoka, Kyushu Island of Japan in the morning by Vietnam Airlines from Ho Chi Minh,
we're chauffeured by the typical Japanese coach to Kumamoto that took about 2 hours. I quickly take a good
rest and sleep till I reached Kumamoto Castle Park only I tried to refresh myself from my deprived sleep.
To me, sleep is really 'Dai Guo Tin' and nothing else is more important than my 8 hours sleep. I've told Rambo
not to wake me up for any meals on board even for breakfast if he sees me sleeping soundly like a log, rock or
sleeping beauty. If possible, I really don't wana go travel that affects much of my blissful sleep like China. 

Haha...Just leave me alone, even got Abalone or 'Fatt Tiu Cheong' Buddha Jumps Over The Wall also don't care.
After a yummylicious lunch at one of the famous Japanese Restaurant, we get to shop till we drop for 5.30 hours
straight at Kumamoto Shopping Arcade where you'll be spoiled for unlimited choices with great bargains of deals at
this shopping paradise like Shinzaibashi Osaka, almost the same. There are many shopping malls like Tenmonkan,
and Parco if you didn't like to hang out at pharmacies, shops or cafes like us, plenty of things to look & explore here.
I wish I could spend the whole day here also although 5.30 hours can be quite long for many others who didn't shop
and most of them were too tired to do anything also. All we wanted is to get a good slumber night at hotel only.

More over this Kumamoto Shopping Arcade is really long from the top to the end also, there's another one
arcade at the opposite of another main road, you need to cross over to another buildings for more shopping.
If you don't have the kinda burst of energy like an athlete, I bet you would just hang out at the cafes for coffee
only especially if you're not into shopping kinda person. But then here in Japan, you get to see many kinds of
weird, fun things and you can also go for Karaoke if you're bored waiting for your queen, princess who loves
to go shopping. Haha...Japan is another country besides China where you'll be awe with thousands of surprises. 

Haha...I've explored much Japan from Honshu, Hokkaido and Kyushu Island all around, I've seen a lot and
read so much about Japan, but everytime I was there, I'm still surprised to see many real things about them.
In fact Rambo just told me recently that his company was asking if he wana be based in Japan for a year and
bring me along, but then I gave many excuses to Rambo that I'm not keen to be based here for a year long. "As
you know the way I eat like a Pig, susah a bit for me although I love taking Japanese good food from Japan but
not everyday" I reasoned with Rambo. He totally understands my situation as I had promised him later years
in our 50's maybe. Haha...At this moment while I still have the high energy, I wanted to explore the world 1st.
Just got my lovely Pink Furry Samantha Vega Handbag, I left with a happy good mood that last me till today.

I've started to use the mini handbag liao given to me as the gift from my expensive
purchase since now at my age of 40, I never sayang sayang to use any of my things
because I've seen so many people just left the world to another world without any
chance to live their life to the fullest they planned to be. Life is so short, never even
given a chance for some to repent, change or hopes to live so never live a regretted
life no matter how short it can be. If you wana indulge in Butterscotch Frappe cost
RM15, dine luxuriously at Hongkong The Peak for lovely scenery or wear a Rolex
just go for it. Like I told Rambo, I always live with my philosophy 'Sei Yi Mou Ham'
because when I looked back my 40 years of life, I have live my life to the fullest I can.

Both Rambo and I have different kinds of perceptions in living our lives real drastically. He thinks that savings
the RM15 for CB Mocha Coffee for 365 days meant a lot for him where he can saved RM54,750 in 10 years. To
me, the RM15 for a cup of my favourite coffee managed to brighten up my day with good mood, stimulate brain
waves to kick start my day with wisdom thinking and beneficial for my heart in the long run. So both of us have
our very own firm standings in financial planning but in the end, Rambo only had one goal in life is to love his wife
fully, sincerely so naturally he will relent to my demanding request so long I'm living up my days happily everyday.
To me, my wishful thinking is also the same like I told him everyday, "Be back home safely" and not just the
amount of money he brings back to please me so I can buy Hermes or LV last December that made me LOL.
Haha...Money can buy you happiness obviously but there are times, we need to be smart in spending our money.

Bio Jourdeness PURE Lavender Essential Oil & Body Gel From Taiwan

Bio Jourdeness Pure Lavender Essential Oil cost RM268 is considered one of the pricey essential oil that's
pure and needed to blend with this PURE Body Gel and pampered luxuriously all over my body from top neck
 to bottom toe. The relaxing scent is really calming and soothing enough to calm my overall senses to perfection.
That's why I only use it at night after my hot bath, I had a good night sleep blissfully after enveloping myself
with it without failed every night. Anyhow, it's not the best essential oil I have owned so far, over the years.

This picture only featured a few of the brands I was using in 2016, Forever Living Lavender selling at RM98
is one of the best for me actually but it only contained 10 ml bottle whereby 2 months also finished using liao.
When it comes to quality control, I think I'm more fussy than Rambo as I always said quality comes 1st above
everything else, only then the price factor comes secondary and finally, I need it or not desperately. Haha...For
woman, wellness comes above everything esp. every month we're prone to get imbalance hormonal changes
so we need essential oil to balance our body, mind and soul to rest, relax, calm and soothing our overall auras.
I used to get Adonis 7 Chakra Essential Oils set that cost RM800+ which is totally worthy of my money. I'll
share more about the importance of maximising the use of essential oils with you next Feb so stay tuned ya!

This Lunar New Year of the Rooster, Avenue K Shopping Mall presents a feast of nostalgic experiences and sweet decorations in a quaint setting reminiscent of the city’s yesteryear back in the 1970’s. Such a coincidence I have just posted an Instagram sharing about my life story dating back 20 years ago and mentioned about yesteryear memories, then yesterday I chance upon this yesteryear AK Chinatown nostalgic cinema 'Pawagam' stage decoration, so much alike with the one we had visited back then. 

Aptly themed the “AK Nostalgic Chinatown”, shoppers can savour the delights of the festivity, enjoy grand decorations, heart-thumping sensational performances and bountiful rewards starting from 31 December 2016 to 12 February 2017. I used to love visiting Chinatown with my family and friends for good food, shopping for Chinese New Year clothing with my mom and and sisters back in the 80's till today, I still visit Chinatown occasionally just to keep myself updated with my homeland Malaysia's Chinatown. I would say, it brings many great memories of my childhood memory lane back to life again. Haha...Time really flies, where have all the years gone by? 

Visitors to Avenue K Shopping Mall will get to see the Ground Floor Atrium, main entrances and walkways decorated with replicas of old buildings complete with antique adornments and furniture’s reminiscent of the city’s yesteryear back in 1970’s. Auspicious red coloured cloth hanging from lattices, blossoming peonies, cherry blossoms and other floral decorations can be seen to further inculcate the traditional Chinese New Year spirit in shoppers.

Amidst this, there will also be festive goodies being traded at the mock Chinese shops along the pedestrian streets to mimic the good olden days. Shoppers get to usher in Chinese New Year with an abundant of joy and colours with festive clothings and groceries, delicacies, beauty shops and many more at the streets.

Avenue K has also invited eight (8) lion dance troupes to perform on the second and last day of Chinese New Year which will delight shoppers and tourists alike with the essence of Chinese New Year in Malaysia. Other must-see cultural performances lined up are the 8 Festival Drums, Shaolin Wushu, Chinese Orchestra, Chinese Traditional Mask Changing Show, Chinese Acrobatic Show and the unforgettable famous Shanghai Jazz vocalists – Janet Lee and Yi Run who will be performing every weekend.

“Being one of the neighbourhood mall located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, we put in great measures to ensure all shoppers get to have an enjoyable experience here at Avenue K. With ‘AK Nostalgic Chinatown’, we present a feast of senses for our shoppers – in the visual decorations, the nostalgic music, the delightful shops  in Malaysia 1970’s Chinatown setting; so take a moment to indulge while you shop. Special thanks to our festive partners Maybank and AirAsia for making our celebration extra rewarding,” said Ms Phang Sze Sze, Deputy General Manager of Avenue K.

Last but not least, do drop by the Ground Floor Atrium Avenue K for sensational festivities and performances when you come for the CNY shopping because I actually enjoyed it although I have watched all these kind of performances in China so many times. Somewhere, somehow, it helped to fulfil my eagerness to celebrate Chinese New Year 'Hei Fen' that I'm looking for this coming 28th and 29 January 2017. And if you like Jazz music, you will enjoy 'Ye Shanghai~ oldies song sang by Janet Lee. C ya around as you may see me here sometimes as I enjoy doing my shopping and dining so just say "Hi" if we really bump into each other. It's a small, small world after all!
