Malaysia's Largest Clothes Buffet 2014


all you can get clothes in a bag for RM60

I bet you have heard about "clothes buffet" before right? It's quite a popular event where you only pay RM60 entry fee and receive a ziplock bag (empty one) and start hunting for as many clothes as you can to stuff it in within 15minutes. The best part? you get to keep whatever you manage to stuff into the bag! I can imagine practicing at home trying to figure out the best way to stuff more than 20 pieces of clothing into a ziplock bag without it breaking.


Interesting? Well the Malaysia's Largest Clothes Buffet is happening next week 25th - 27th April, 2014 from 10am - 6pm at Syopz Mall, Taylor's University Lakeside Campus. Organized by LINs Communication and A Shopaholics Den, this event will make girls go fashion crazy rummaging through 50,000 fashionable pieces in buffet area for only RM60. 

1 ziplock bag. 15minutes. 50,000 clothes. 
If you can zip it, you can keep it.

How does it work?
• PAY for an RM60 bag to enter
• GRAB as many clothes as you can in 15 minutes
• STUFF everything into the bag and you're done!


Then there's the Blowout Sale 4pm - 6pm during the period where each piece of clothing will be on sale for only RM10! Besides that there will also be a variety of stalls from participating fashion bazaar. Judging from the previous success of clothes buffet in Malaysia, I say you got to buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment!.

please help find my iphone 5 putih

Readers & friends, I lost my beloved iphone 5 putih in a  red white taxi taken from Curve to TTDI between 7.53pm on 10th April, 2014. I was so tired and hungry, I carelessly left it on the seat while digging up money to pay for the taxi fare to a Malay taxi driver (I didn't check name etc or taxi number plate). I usually would look back on the seat to see if it left anything but on this night, I just wanted to get home and eat after a long day of meetings and rushing proposals.

I enable Lost Mode on Apple's Find My Phone (cool right) yesterday and the phone once it's online would be locked and tracking of location would be enable. I see that my iphone has changed name from Tammy's Iphone to Fadzilah. I guess the person who found my phone is name Fadzilah.

If you have friends name Fadzilah or know someone who has found my iphone 5 putih please do contact me at tammylci@gmail.com. Reward given if return.

wanna win a Kose SEKKISEI lotion mask pack (2pcs)?

Hola! Today I'm going to share to you my review on using the Kose SEKKISEI lotion mask. Apparently it's the best whitening product with instant whitening effect! Don't you want to try one too? Well I am trying one today :) see! You can achieve deep translucency with the power of oriental plant extracts, even for dull skin by using the SEKKISEI lotion mask. It's a lotion that creates fine-textured, hydrated “snow-white” skin.

  2. The cloudy white lotion blends instantly into the skin, just like melting snow, creating fine-textured, plump skin. With a refreshing, light sensation, the lotion leaves the surface of the skin feeling silky smooth, yet hydrated. Your skin regains its natural pure translucency down to your pores.

how to use the Kose SEKKISEI lotion mask?

Step by Step Instructions (if applicable):
1) Pour SEKKISEI Lotion into cap until it reaches the line.
2) Put the mask into the cap.
3) Allow mask to absorb lotion till it puffs up.
4) Unfold the mask and place onto clean face for 5-10mins.
5) Remove Mas, tap the excess into the skin until it is absorbed, no rinsing is necessary.
6) Voila! Skin is now fair, radiant and translucent like SNOW.

spot any differences? I can see my face is brighter!

Upon opening the SEKKISEI lotion mask pack, I pulled out the lotion mask dripping with essence!. It was all over my keyboard (because I usually blog while wearing a mask haha). I quickly wipe my keyboard away, don't want it to get any whiter than it already is yeah?. It looks like any other sheet mask and has a faint baby scent which was quite relaxing. I position the mask on my mask, it fits quite nicely maybe due it being made for Asians :) other sheet masks tends to be too big or too wide. I leave the lotion mask on for 10mins to let my face absorb the goodness of the ingredients.

After 10 mins, the lotion mask is practically dry. My face must be real thirsty!. I inspect my face and I could see that my skin was noticeably brighter and softer. Though I can't say if pores can disappear just by using this lotion mask. There is a considerably amount of firmness felt on my cheeks. I am glad I don't feel any tingling sensation or itchiness after using this lotion mask.

Dove School of Skindulgence Instagram Contest


Siti Suhaila Abd Hamid, Brand Manager & Chong Yen Nee,
Brand Manager of Skins Category of Unilever (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd
launched the Skindulgence Facebook campaign

The best thing that ever happened to the Butterfly Project Community early this year was being able to experience what it takes to being able indulge ourselves. In a recent study by Dove body wash with 108 women between the ages of 18 - 35 years old, time and money are one of the obstacles in taking care of themselves.  Dove then launched the Skindulgence campaign to encourages women out there to pamper and take care of themselves everyday in the best affordable way possible right in the comfort of their own home via the three pillars - eat right, stay active and pamper yourself.
the community for beauty & lifestyle bloggers

50 butterflies (blogger members of The Butterfly Project) were invited then to the Dove "home" at The Apartment, Curve on 25th February, 2014 to participate in the School of Skindulgence where each group got to learn how to eat right, stay active and pamper themselves right in a home setting workshop. It was a clever way to send the message through and everyone had a great time learning how to stay healthy by making their own meals at home, staying active with easy to do exercises without needing to subscribe to a gym and pampering themselves using Dove which is better than milk thanks to key ingredient NutriumMoisture. What it does besides moisturizing our skin baby smooth is that it also replenishes the goodness lost during bath says Dove's brand manager, Siti Suhaila Abd Hamid.

Here's a glimpse of the amazing School of Skindulgence workshop session at The Apartment, Curve. Scroll to the bottom to find out how you can win a 3 day 2 night Island Getaway just by practicing the three pillars at home and sharing it on your instagram for 21-days.

members of The Butterfly Project ecstatic about the launch 

of course everyone got to bring back Dove

I'm wondering what they're talking about

as many as 50 butterflies turned up that night 

we had cards that tells us which group we belong to
(each group to experience a pillar session)

each pillar has its own designated themed setting
eat right - cooking workshop, stay active - garden exercise
pamper yourself - a bathroom setting

 fancy taking selfies in this bathroom!

the cooking workshop was the best

valuable health & exercise tips to take care of ourselves

Unilever Chefs sent to teach us to cook healthy
(we made two recipes that night to bring back home)

we made chicken salad & edame soba yum!

21 days of eating right, staying active & loving yourself
1 Mar – 30 Apr 2014

Now here's the interesting part about learning all this tips and tricks. Everyone went back armed and ready to blog about the Dove School of Skindulgence Campaign which is a instagram contest. The challenge was to share everyday for 21days photos of ourselves eating right, staying active and pampering ourselves. Each photograph shared on instagram must come with it's designated hashtag #skindulgence #eatright #stayactive #betterthanmilk. All contest information can be found right on the Dove Body Wash Facebook Fanpage. What we need to do is register and pledge to practice the three pillars for 21-days and all  instagram photographs shared will be automatically tracked via the hashtags to appear on a cute daily / weekly report book on the app.

The contest is opened to everyone who has instagram. It's so easy to join, just commit to a picture a day for 21-days based on the three pillars and you might just be one of the 10 lucky people going on that Island getaway trip to Krabi (Grand Prize). Not only that, every week there will be three winners announced on Dove Body Wash Facebook Fanpage with the best pillar photographs shared.

the last day to pledge is April 10, 2014

Want to be one of the top 10? Here are some tips:
  1. Start as early as possible. Because there are weekly prizes to be won along with the Grand Prize.
  2. Try not to miss any of your daily Skindulgence activity. You can’t turn back time!
  3. In our books, eating right isn’t about having a specific diet. It’s about moderation, and listening to what your body wants. If you want that block of chocolate, go ahead! Just balance it out with some exercise. And speaking of exercise…
  4. It’s not just about spin class at gym twice a week. It’s a change in lifestyle. Take the stairs, not the escalator. Need to talk to someone in your office? Skip the intercom, and walk up to them!
  5. You don’t need to take a photograph of yourself showering with Dove (it’s a little too much skin and definitely illegal in many countries). Just pose with your Dove body wash as proof, before or after your shower.
