Light at the end of the tunnel

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
– Dale Carnegie


Today I would love to share to you guys about a story of an extraordinary girl - Nurul Ashikin a.k.a Shikin. Born with hearing impairment, She faced difficulty with her speech, thus affecting her ability to converse with people around her. However, her strong spirit along with her family’s determination proved that miracles do happen.


Shikin is the youngest in the family. At the young age of one, her mother noticed an abnormality in her development as a child as she remained silent, unlike the other children around her age. At the age of five, Shikin visited various specialists in hopes for an opportunity of a cochlear implant. However, they were discouraged as it was too late.

It was when Shikin met Dr. Arasa from Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur, things started to change for the better, they had a light of hope for her condition. He suggested applying for the Khazanah-IHH Healthcare Fund in view of their financial constraint and they succeeded in getting the aid!

Shikin underwent the operation in January 2015, it was a success and her first words were "Boleh dengar la mak!". She can now hear her cat’s purr and even her father’s LOUD sneeze. Her academic studies even improved tremendously, placing her No.2 in her class last semester. She is now more confident in socialising and making friends.




What is the Khazanah-IHH Healthcare Fund?

The Fund provides partial or fully sponsored medical treatment to needy patients in Malaysia, Singapore and Turkey. It was first launched in July 2012 and RM50 million Fund is disbursed over a span of five years until 2017. 70% of the Fund amounting to RM35 million has been allocated to help
patients in Malaysia and the remaining 30% - Singapore and Turkey. To date, it has extended it's help to some 1,000 people in Malaysia. Their aim is to "Restoring Health, Changing Lives".

How to save your damaged, weak and bleached hair?

Thursday, October 20, 2016

I know, a lot of you have been wondering about this burning question. As a matter of fact, people have been asking me why my hair can maintain so strong, soft and healthy even with all the crazy colour changing, bleaching and styling. How is that even possible right?



Dry, damaged, coarse or fried hair?
It is unavoidable when you bleach, colour and style often.

I'm glad to share with you my latest experience at Number76, Publika (My first time there! I'm usually in Mid Valley) using the latest 360° Beautiful Hair - Global Milbon Salon Hair Treatment. Believe me when I say it's 360°, my hair literally went from the Sahara dessert to fabulous silky smooth water ride. The result was just too unbelievable!



I have been going to Number76 for almost a year now and I have always loved the Ultrasonic Treatment and the Milbon Hair Treatment for its amazing long lasting results. However, the new Global Milbon Salon Hair Treatment have totally brought the treatment game to a whole new level! Can you imagine if you combine the Global Milbon Salon Hair Treatment with Ultrasonic Treatment technology? That's even more effective.

Global Milbon Hair Care Collection

Fruity aqueous scent

Warm sweet floral scent

This range of products are infused with the SSVR-Silk™ - a powerful, silk based complex which supersedes the hollows tubular gaps in our hair to improve the hair's overall intergrity; inside and outside.

My experience
The whole treatment was done while I was lying down at the hair wash area with a comfy blanket and an eye mask. The assistant even gave me a much needed head massage! It was done within 30 minutes and I was off for the blow drying and styling. My hair instantly felt so smooth, glossy and hydrated, the colour did faded a little but it become more pastel and vibrant! I was sincerely so impressed, I couldn't stop smiling, touching and flipping my own hair.


Can you see the result even after styling? It is not as dry as before!

Party/Camp/Outdoor Ideas

Saturday, October 15, 2016

October is THE month for me because it's the beginning of Fall, Halloween and my birthday month. I'm so happy that it's finally here again! It's been 2 months after PokemonGo landed in Malaysia, I have been going out to parks just to hunt for Pokemons, have you? I seriously think that it is a good thing that I get to be out and about, running in parks and breathing fresh air.

This rang a bell in my head that I should be doing this more often. I really miss the good old outdoor activities with my friends, where we can sweat and get our endorphines pumping! I was in Titiwangsa park, I saw a group of friends walking on water in a ball, they tripped over and over again. I know, it's not easy but it was so funny and they were having so much fun together. I can't help myself and I laughed along with them. Darn, I miss these silly moments.

I was googling and I found we can actually purchase these Water ball at inflatable zone toys. This company specializes in big inflatable products, such as Zorb Ball or Bubble Soccer and water game toys like Trampoline, Inflatable slides, Bouncer and Pools. They even have 1 year quality guarantee and free repair kit given for every purchase! Not to forget, they can be customize to your liking or even add your own personal logo. There are a few colours to choose from!

The multi coloured one because this reminds me of Katy Perry's California Girls music video.

Besides that, they also have these heavy duty Inflatable Jump Bag for sale for stunts, giant jumping bag or a giant bed to lay down to soak in the sun for the Vitamin D *sunglasses on*.


If you are thinking of getting one of the water walking ball, they do provide wholesale cheap water walking ball at a good price! They do ship worldwide, you can enjoy free shipping to United States,Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia (Arrive within 14 working days!), since these things are heavy, you can save up on the hefty shipping fees! Don't worry, you can shop and pay by PayPal or your credit card.

Pictures are from Inflatable-zone, you can check out their website for more information and plan good outdoor activities to do with your friends and family.

Time to get some fun in the sun, get healthy and sweat the stress out!

Fall fashion inspiration

Thursday, October 13, 2016

Hi lovelies, my most favourite season of the year is finally here. I'm so excited to share my inspiration for fall this year and I hope this post can help you all to pick out a new wardrobe for the Fall this year.

DAY



It wouldn't be Fall without the wine red/maroon colour, it is one of my favourite colour to wear as this colour looks good on everybody! Not to forget, the ripped denim look is one of the hottest trend this year. If you don't have a good old pair, I suggest you get one, as it matches which every clothing easily.

NIGHT


If you have been shopping in big brands in the shopping malls, you will noticed that Velvet is back this Fall/Winter. I really love wearing Velvet during the night time as it brings a very sexy and luxurious vibe.

I just cannot wait to go shop for a brand new look this Fall. I've been waiting for a whole year for it, I'm so excited I can bring out my wool hats and dark vampy lips.

So, I'm curious, are you a more of a F/W or S/S person? 

All the pictures are from https://www.stylewe.com/. For more tips and tricks, you can head on to their YouTube page(here) to learn more about them!

Smells like Flowers (Brought to you by Gucci)

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Summer is almost here, I can literally feel the heat coming. Well, who am I kidding, Malaysia has Summer all year long. But seriously, jokes aside, don't you feel like it's getting even hotter right now?

So, are you ready for the summer yet? Have you got your Summer looks on? Here are some tips on how to be as pretty as a flower!

Step 1: Dye your hair with crazy colours, inspired by flowers.


I just did a hair makeover, and it's inspired by the colours of the morning glory. I'm digging the blue with hints of purple and green highlights.

Step 2: Shop for the ultimate summer looks



Summer is all about the gorgeous floral prints and bright colours! You definitely can't go wrong with these babies, especially that bright lip colour!

Step 3: Get your floral scent on!


Gucci has launched Flora Anniversary Edition, a new fragrance for women. Flora Anniversary Edition is a flanker to 2009′s Gucci Flora, and it celebrates the anniversary of that scent's inspiration, the “iconic floral print Flora”, first used on a Gucci scarf in 1966.

The heart base of the perfume is still the same but the new element of Rose and Osmanthus creates a resonant essence in this new fragrance. When it is interlaced with a Peony accord, the contrasting elements of the Rose signature is amplified, creating a deep floralcy and the natural airy and petal-like character. Whereas, the Rose signature meets Osmanthus' complex facets, drawing out its apricot-like freshness, exoticism and creaminess.

The bottom of the glass bottle is decorated with beautiful, loud and colourful inspiration of the “iconic floral print Flora” scraf. They are reflected within the flacon's hexagon shape. These bright, glossy blooms also embellish the scent's outer carton.


With all these tips, you will be rocking the summer with feminine yet trendy style!

For more information, please visit Gucci's Official YouTube page.

Shine Through with Moist Diane Extra Shine Series

Monday, May 16, 2016

If you are a 90s baby, you would probably know who is Hebe Tian, a famous Taiwanese singer from the girl group "S.H.E.". Hebe has one of the most luxurious silky smooth hair I've seen in the Taiwan entertainment industry, no matter if she sports a short or long hairstyle, her hair is always so healthy & shinny! That's #hairgoals 

Hebe is the ambassador of Moist Diane, a Japanese brand that has a range of non-silicone OIL shampoos that produce professional salons results with an affordable price. They focus on rare oils which grow under harsh environments that has been used since ancient times.


Benefits of using Moist Diane
  • Restore dull and lifeless hair
  • Promotes shine for healthy looking locks
  • Detanglises hair and prevent tangles
  • Moisturizes and repairs damaged hair

Beneficial ingredients
Who is suitable to use the Extra Shine Range?
All hair types, especially for dull and lifeless hair that has been damaged from chemical treatment. Bid goodbye to frizzy, unruly hair!




Extra Shine Shampoo 
Contains virgin coconut oil and 3 types of fruits extracts to provide excellent shine.
Scent: Smells like sweet berries that is not overpowering and the scent is really long lasting.
Texture: It has a gel-like consistency but much lighter as it contains oils.





Extra Shine Treatment
Prevents tangles and promotes smoothness
Scent: Smells the same as the shampoo.
Texture: It is much thicker than the typical normal conditioner and it untangles my hair with much more ease! I'm really surprised!



Extra Shine Hair Mask
Concentrated for intensive deep restoration for extra shine and healthy hair.
Scent: Smells just like the shampoo and treatment.
Texture: So so much thicker in consistency and a little goes a long way!


My Experience & Results after using Moist Diane



What I like about this range?

  • It deep cleanses my scalpI have oily scalp and I know it's weird to say that I'm using an oil shampoo. However, Moist Diane works just like makeup removing oil, it removes dust, dirt and excess sebum in your scalp. My scalp has actually improved and it's more healthy now.
  • It repairs and penetrates deeplyI love how Moist Diane has the Nano Platinum Booster Technology that allows deep penetration of Nano particles to repair my damaged follicles from within!

  • It moisturizes my ends
    This shampoo is so moisturizing and nourishing, it gives my hair that extra shine!




My hair has obviously been damaged from all the colouring and bleaching. You can clearly see how dull and lifeless my hair is before I started using the Moist Diane Extra Shine range, it is so dry and unmanageable!

My long and shinny black hair used to gain a lot of attention from people. It gives a good impression on people and I had a lot of compliments back then. I do look much younger and more lively with my healthy hair.
