Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

What is BARIO Project?
The Kelabit, at approximately 5,000 people, is one of the smallest ethnic groups in Bario, Sarawak. Bario is located in the centre of the Kelabit Highlands in the north east of Sarawak, Malaysia. Like many other indigenous communities in Sarawak, the Kelabit live in longhouses in the highlands. However, due to economic and social factors, many have migrated to live in urban areas over the last 20 years. Approximately, 1,200 Kelabit are still living in the highlands. Bario lack constant supply of basic utilities. Besides the Celcom network coverage, there is no telecommunication service provided at Bario. Water supply is through gravity-fed system and thus they rely on rainwater and river water for their supply. Limited electricity supply is provided through diesel generators and solar-panels. Kids at Bario also lack basic facilities that are required for boarding and schooling.

10.29.2010

dude surfing on money?

live report from Miu at Petronas launching ceremony

Yesterday (28.11.10) I was invited to witness the launch of a contest program aimed at rewarding its customers. Which customers? well those who pumps at Petronas of course! It was launched at the Petronas station at Ampang where media, bloggers and guests were invited. It's my first time attending a petrol company event and boy was I excited. Green and white balloons, colors of Petronas Dagangan decorated the stage above and I was watching them.

Encik Zainal Abidin Othman opening speech
(General Manager, Retail Business Division)
Petronas Dagangan Bhd

The ceremony started with an opening speech by Petronas Dagangan's General Manager of Retail Business Division, Encik Zainal Abidin Othman thanking everyone who came. He introduced the reward program, aiming to thank their loyal customers called the "Road To Rewards" promotion and suddenly a surfer dude came surfing (on a mechanical and ocean wave board build up) on a orange surf board, the crowd went OOOO!!! The Balloons came down and a short performance started. Everyone was clapping and the photographers went snapping away. 

official launch of "Petronas The Road to Rewards"

rewarding its customer not only with a smile

Now "The Road To Rewards" program will kick start on 1st Nov, 2010 until Feb 15th, 2011 as a part of the company's effort to reward its customers. Customers with a minimum spending of RM30 at any Petronas stations nationwide will get a chance to win up to RM3million in cash prizes including cash, PETRONAS Mesra points and Petronas cash gift cards.

Kedai Mesra shopping sweep lucky draw
by Encik Amir Hamzah Azizan
(Managing Director/CEO)
Petronas Dagangan Bhd

It don't just stop there coz Petronas Dagangan is also rewarding 252 customers spotted with the 'PETRONAS The Road to Rewards' Promotion Car Stickers to a SHOPPING SPREE done weekly! What shopping?! now I am awake! How much shopping can we do if we're spotted? A RM200 worth at Kedai Mesra! Just get the car stickers from any Petronas stations from next week onwards, stick it on your car and wait to be spotted. You could have a party of snack, drinks when u win the shopping spree!

the 6 chosen shoppers = 3 guys vs 3 girls!

who will win?

you need to shop in 45 minutes, no sorry SECONDS!

Now to show you a taste of the shopping spree,  Encik Amir Hamzah Azizan Managing Director and CEO of Petronas Dagangan drew 6 lucky names from guests who attended this launch for a quick, no EXPRESS SHOPPING SPREE in 45 SECONDS of where a shopping list is given and the lucky 6 shoppers (no car stickers needed at this launch) and they have to rush into the Kedai Mesra, shop as fast as they could and get out! The one with the highest spending will win right away what's in their basket and a RM100 Petronas voucher.

who can spend the most in 45secs?

hmm could you have done better?

sneak peek at the results *drum rolls*

I wonder what I would've have done if I was one of them? Could I have shopped till I drop in 45seconds? it's just too rush! Looking at them rushing in, frantically looking for the items in the list and not knowing what to get first, you'd probably get the first thing that come into your mind or what you see! Now a bucket of Hagen Daaz would not be in my mind when I think of ice-cream, but Jeff Chin's quick shopping bag him the highest among all the basket of purchases! He must be a big fan of Hagen Daaz, coz he was alerting the judges that his ice-cream is going to melt! 

Reiko, Me & Jeff Chin

JEFF CHIN from MYFM won!
(yes thanks to Hagen Daaz ice cream)


Congratulations to Jeff Chin from MYFM the first Petronas 45seconds Shopper to kick start the shopping spree fever! I hope he don't put a sticker again in his car so he can get spotted to win another basket of ice-cream! Give chance to us please! Petronas customers don't let Jeff Chin win anymore! get your Petronas Road To Rewards Car Stickers so you can get spotted soon! and enter into the running for the cash prizes! Imagine wining the RM100,000, I will faint immediately.

The Petronas "Road To Rewards" Program starts 1st Nov, 2010 to 15th Feb, 2011. For more information visit your Petronas station to bug them how you can win or MyMesra website here.

Previous years it was a notebook, then herb plants and this year Clarin's come out with lunch boxes! amazingly cool way to donate to charity, now u get to bring back a lunch box for your children or use it for yourself to make bento.

This reminds me that I have 1 more facial session to go at Clarin's Spa. I have not been hardworking enough to complete my facial and body packages due to my life schedule as a blogger. This looks tempting though! Enjoy Anti-Stress Facial Treatment or Extra-Firming from Bavaria Facial Treatment for ONLY RM99! Offer available only at Clarins Skin Spas and until 31/12/10. Valid for 1 treatment per person only. The Christmas sets are also out in the newsletter from RM468-RM165. Tempting but Santa says no shopping this Christmas for me.

Plusizekitten in Female Magazine

Female Magazine Nov 2010 Issue

A couple of months back, I received an e-mail from Wan Lee, a writer for Female Magazine. It was about interviewing beauty junkies (girls mad about beauty stuffs) and she got to know that I kinda fit the bill from my blog. Well yeah I think she found the right person coz I have so much skincare and cosmetics, I didn't know where to start. I was asked to show beauty obsession and among all the beauty products I have, skincare cosmetics, haircare, body care, which could amount to hundreds, I only had one obsession that I truly like to show which is my Shu Uemura eyelash collection . Yeap you don't see me wear them all the time, but when I need to, I'll get it from my collection of lashes (hunted from sales, shops, overseas). Some are so precious I wouldn't want to use them at all. Others are expensive (seriously like RM250 for a pair) should be use only when I am a celebrity (which I am not) or when I need to meet our Prime Minister (will never happen). Being Asian, I have small sleepy (make them super small) eyes with no double eyelid but with the help of false eyelashes, my look could totally change in a second! Take a look at this photo here, my eyes are quite something else aren't they? I am wearing Shu Uemura's natural false eyelash (walk into any Shu Uemura Boutique and they'll recommend u this popular natural lash RM55). Few good reasons why I use Shu Uemura:
  • quality
  • diversity
  • designer collections
  • seasonal collections suited for the occasion
  • can be use up to 20 times!

Check out my 1st experimental session using a seriously crazy green eyelash from Shu Uemura below (full review here). Don't laugh and yes I look tired and here because it was a crazy and stressful time for me last year but I love the make up and everyone in KLCC was looking at me funny. I don't blame them.

Don't I look super evil like Uma Thurman @ Poison Ivy from Batman? Just like the stereotypical Librarian lady whose boring and firm, they might be a tiger in the bedroom with leather sexy lingerie and a whip. The same for squinty small eyes Asian girl like me, who may look dull and boring but might have a killer appetite to have/own beautiful lashes, the more dramatic the better.

PROJECT REVIVE LEND US A HAND!

Project Revive 4.11.10

I'm no student anymore but hey it's good to see students now actively participating in charitable activities to help the less fortunate! Charitable projects and events like the upcoming Project Revive where Juwita Suwito is performing live. What's Project Revive? In short, it's a charity concert + dinner to help raise funds for the Precious Home Orphanage, BARIO Project and to provide a platform for youth to showcase their hidden talents. Big clap to Taylor's University Student Council (TUSC) for organizing this! Details of this event:

Theme : Lend us a hand, Give them a hope
Date :4 Nov 2010 (Thursday)
Time :7.30 till 11pm
Venue :Multipurpose Hall, Taylor’s University, Lakeside Campus.

Besides helping to raise funds for the orphanage, Project Revive fuels the Bario Project too. Bario is a place in north east of Sarawak, located in the centre of the Kelabit Highlands. A small group of indigenous community called the Kelabit lives here in longhouses. Lack of constant supply of basic utilities, telecommunication (only Celcom network covers here), relying on rainwater and river water, electricity (diesel generated & solar panels), and basic facilities required by kids for boarding and schooling, are the main concerns in the project where your help, even though how little, may go a long way for the community. The Bario Project is a Taylor's Corporate Social Responsibility project.

Detv and the hallyu, or Korean Wave

10.21.2010


guess what it is?

Last month, I had the priviledged to review something that I have never reviewed before. No it’s not about cosmetics or beauty products. Neither is it on food or fashion. This time it's on entertaiment, when I say entertaiment, I will narrow it down to TV Channels which you can't find just by turning on your TV. I'll give you a few hints.

1. International Channels
2. Needs Decorder
3. Needs Internet

DeTV Malaysia's First Chinese IPTV!

Can you guess what it is already? I know some of you might think it's ASTRO but hang on, Astro don't use internet to stream tv channels so which new TV service is this! When I told my friends, they were all also dumb founded by my new discovery (lol). It's called DETV! yeap DETV! I tried to explain to them it uses internet to stream tv channels to my tv (Internet Protocol television = IPTV) they don't believe me until I showed them my DETV which uses a decorder connected to either directly to your wired ethernet connection or can be connected wireless! Mine is wireless, thanks to my bf who set it up. We didn't even know how to read Chinese! (and still could manage to set up a wireless connection). DeTV is a Chinese TV service owned by DE Multimedia Sdn Bhd, a joint venture founded by REDtone International Bhd and Zhong Nan Enterprise (M) Bhd. It was officially been launched on 26th Jan 2010. Most of the channels provided by DeTV are from mainland China and Taiwan.

DETV Have you Heard Of It?

chinese & taiwan channels aplenty!

If my grandmother were still here, she would be glued to this DeTV watching all the mainland China dramas and news, being updated of her motherland. Yes my grandmother is from China and she would understand Chinese! I on the other hand can't read Chinese but I do understand "a bit" of Chinese (Mandarin/Cantonese). The generation gap is there haha! The channels that I can find on my DeTV are:

GuangXi TV International
TianJin TV International
SiChuan TV International
Al Jazeera English
Al Jazeera (Arabic)
Channel NewsAsia
Bloomberg TV
DaAi Channel
GoodTV
Digital Mobile (Dimo) TV
Taiwan MAC (Macroview) TV
Hakka TV
China Sun TV
Arirang TV
CCTV 4
CCTV 9
Kaku Animation
CCTV-Entertainment
China Movie
Fujian Straits TV
Dragon TV
TVS (China)
Zhejiang International Channel
CCTV Chinese Opera Channel
Chongqing TV International Channel
Hunan TV World
Beijing TV
JSBC International Channel
Yellow River TV
NHK World
Enlight Media
Collections TV
Health & Lifestyle Channel


Since it's a IPTV based service, I did wonder if the internet connection here would affect the TV Channel's live streaming. Well truth be told, there was at a time Streamyx was having maintenance at my area and I could not watch DeTv at all but after that, the streaming was effortless and I could channel surf all the way until I found this cool channel called Arirang TV (Korean TV). Arirang TV is an international, English-language networkd based in Seoul, South Korea. It's operated by The Korean International Broadcasting Foundation and has a diverse lineup of programs ranging from cultural, documentaries, and entertiament to give viewers a peek into Korea, Asia and the world at large. FYI! This is my ultimate favourite channel in DeTV because I am interested in Korea! Also another reason why I like watching this channel is beacuse I got to keep up with the "Hallyu" meaning the Korean Wave! yes what's making everyone especially the young and restless crazy nowadays? addictive tunes, cool moves and girl/boy bands that's as addictive as sugary desserts.

Girls Generation on Arirang, DeTV

K-POP! from Facebook there's already friends posting and sharing their views about K POP and there's where I first got watching! Seriously, I don't have time for entertaiment these days so I don't know what's hot and happening. Being able to finally catch up Korean's Hottest Bands in DeTV while ironing my clothes makes me happy. When Generation Girls music video came up, I stop doing what I do and sat down, mesmerized by the video. No wonder guys are going ga-ga over them and girls trying to dress like them. Their tune and dance movement is so addictive, makes me want to do the same. During my teenage years, American Boy Bands and Spice Girls were the rage! Now you can find all sorts of bands being in the top 10 idol list! K POP being one of them. I am enjoying still the many channels in Arirang, here's a list of them you can find:

Here's an excerpt from the sun on the Korean wave dated oct 1st, 2010, I was just reading the Sun Newspaper on Friday and I felt that it's good to share about it here too while I'm watching Korea on DeTV. If you have any questions! please feeel free to leave a comment about DeTV! This is my experience and I tell it as it is.

Korea’s second wave comes calling (1st Oct, 2010, The Sun)

THE Korean Wave of pop culture is ebbing overseas, according to the latest figures, but an official said recently he expects a renewed surge of interest, thanks to new TV dramas. South Korean TV dramas, movies and pop music took Asia and other parts of the world by storm earlier in the decade in a phenomenon known as the Korean Wave or Hallyu. The export of broadcast content alone rose 20% to 30% every year between 2001 and 2005.

Last year exports of broadcast content such as TV dramas, variety shows and documentary films rose only 1.9% year-onyear to US$184 million (RM567.9 million), the state-run Korea Creative Content Agency (KCCA) said. “Overseas demand for our product has been slow amid a global financial crisis. We also face growing competition from US, Chinese and Taiwanese content,” Yoon Jae-Sik, a KCCA team leader, told AFP. He also admitted that in the past few years, South Korea failed to produce programmes on par with previous popular TV classics such as Daejanggeum and Winter Sonata.
