Uniqlo Fall/Winter Collection LAUNCH At The Newly Expanded Uniqlo KLCC Store

Uniqlo Malaysia Ambassadors

Carmen Soo and Fahrin Ahmad


Uniqlo launch it's fifth and final Fall/Winter 2011 collection last month September, 2011 at Uniqlo KLCC (also recently expanded to serve more customers yay!) The store was closed for a media pre-launch of the new collection which introduces the Fall/Winter collection in black, dark brown, mud, claret, Prussian blue and Russian green (all the fall colors that I love!). The avant-garde blend of poetic, ethereal and aerial forms with enriched, contemporary cotton and precious woolen fibres bring life the elegant, formal, and tailored universe of Fall/Winter 2011 Collection, infused with the know-how of casual wear. Elegantly shaped down-jackets that express a strong couture spirit are smart yet cozy, perfect for a winter cocktail. Dresses are straight cut, space-age style with visible 3D seams. Edgy skirts feature cubic outlines. Cool knitwear adds a splash of vitamin colors. Men's suits created in soft flannel, with special, light-weight tailoring, represent fine craftsmanship and design.

Anyone going on a holiday to winter/chilly, the new HEATTECH collection will serve you well under your clothes, keeping you warm and snuggy. I remembered when I went to Melbourne to study, it was kinda hard shopping for warm clothes that fits my pocket (after all I was just a student). Now with Uniqlo's debut in Malaysia since Oct 2009, I think many people out there would shop in ease.   For the collection, I am showing some women and men clothing samples and to see more click here Fall/Winter 2011 Catalogue here and don't forget to join Uniqlo's facebook fanpage for upcoming activities and updates!

STAY WARM AND IN THE PEAK OF FASHION WITH UNIQLO
Japan’s no.1 fashion brand unveils its Fall/Winter 2011 collection

UNIQLO’s Fall/Winter 2011 Collection are:

HEATTECH
Relax in warm comfort any time in HEATTECH, a basic item for winter. HEATTECH, which is made of a material that absorbs moisture from the body and induces Heat Generation, reduces the need of ungainly heavy winter garments due to its Heat Retention capabilities. A definite must-have for unlimited fashion possibilities on cold days, allowing you to be more active. To complement the utility ideal for any setting, UNIQLO offers variations to wear throughout the season from early fall to the coldest time in winter. HEATTECH is more comfortable than ever, now coming with a deodorant feature. Experience the warmth and comfort of HEATTECH that you’ve never had before.

Ultra Light Down
Say goodbye to bulky winter wear with UNIQLO’s collection of amazing lightweight Ultra Light Down items. The all new and improved lightweight downs feature extremely thin, 20-denier nylon for the material’s surface and a technique that enables direct stuffing of the feathers without using down packs - enabling an even lighter weight, resulting in each down weighing a mere 196 grams! Enter, a light yet warm premium down with a 90% feather mix and a design with a more sculptured form taking wear comfort and enhanced silhouettes to newer heights. *High-quality down with a fill power of 640 is generously used for a down mix of 90%.

Sweat Parka and Merino
Merino and Sweat Parka offer comfort through the Fall/Winter season. They can be worn alone as outer layers during Fall, or as secondary layers during the colder days of early Winter. Made by the best wool in Australian, Merino Wool is extremely thin at 19.5 microns in diameter, so it offers a soft, smooth feel. The wool boasts an extremely fine surface and an exquisite luster due its high gauge. This season’s Merino and Sweat Parka are perfect fits for any style from classic American casual to outdoors, and even clean-look styles.

Pantene Pampers Bloggers at Vila Manja!

10.30.2011

an amazing day with Pantene
(I'm sitting with Jone)

When I read my e-mail, I went "YES OH YES! OH YES!" yeah just like a shampoo ad. Now every girl has the right to go OH OH OH if her dreams come true. Hell I would've stroll down the catwalk and do a hair flip if I could. Yes my ultimate dream has come true all thanks to Pantene's latest and may I say awesome shampoo range, the Nature Care. What's Nature Care? A shampoo made from the best of both worlds, Nature + Science.

"Delivering on its promise of healthy hair with resilience and fullness, P & G Beauty and Grooming introduces a new regimen grounded in a fusion of science and nature. On this proud occasion, we cordially invite you to be the first to experience the ultimate transformation of your tresses with the all NEW Pantene Nature Care".
I did a review about Nature Care click here to read about it, absolutely loved it! It's totally different from any of the other Pantene shampoos I have tried in my life. Please go try it and see it for yourself yeah! Now let's talk about this awesome thing that happened to me, no wait to us all! (invited my blogger friends to join me! girly girl Wani, fun and fearless Alie, sweet and shy Esther, chatty and funny Camie!). I also met a new friend and she's a Mummy Blogger! famously known as Little Mama Blogger.




Who would turn down a pampering day like this! tell me! and boy do I love spa. Since it was to celebrate the launch of Pantene's Nature Care range, the whole spa session was a flower themed girly party just for us! I don't know how Cherry and Jone came up with the idea but you know what, they have never failed to amazed me with it! Thanks for the invitation (love love u girls! *muaks*). 

Now the flower themed spa session? we had:
  • Flower Tea Spa Treatment
  • Hair Spa (30mins)
  • Body Scrub (45mins)
  • Shower (15mins)
  • Flower Bath (30mins)
  • Lavender Massage (60mins)

Manja Bath (Hair Spa & Flower Bath) 60mins RM120
This pampering bath experience begins with a 30-minute scalp therapy before you indulge in our signature baths. Fresh fruits and mocktails are served.

Green Tea Cocoa Anti-aging Scrub 45mins RM148 
While green tea anti-oxidant properties protect against free radicals damage to the skin, cocoa has healing properties for chapped skin and protect your skin from the sun. It promotes circulation by increasing the supply of oxygen to and removing toxins from the skin.

Shower
yes this is "mandi" shower

Lavender Massage 60mins RM158
A comforting and soothing massage that works gently but deeply into the muscles using continuous strokes, leaving you truly relaxed. This massage is carried out with your choice of aromatherapy oil.

I believe flower bath wards off bad luck

no need to second guess why we're smiling!

Uluwatu Sunset or... 

Kintanami Volcano? on a Wet Season

I opted out from the Kintanami tour :( since it's such a rush and that it's November in Bali which means WET SEASON = RAINING = CLOUDS = RISK of not even seeing Kintanami volcano at all after traveling up there. So scrap Kintanami, going to enjoy Ubud and go for 1/2 day tour Uluwatu Sunset + Jimbaran Seafood again.

Mango Tree Spa by Loccitane

While googling for best spas in Ubud, I came across Kupu Kupu Barong Villas and Tree Spa which features luxury price spa menus overlooking padi fields and beautiful themed rooms. The amazing thing is this is a spa house is using Loccitane products! The spa is called Mango Tree Spa by L'occitane. Omg so wanan go n try but the prices is "luxury"!
