The CONNOR'S Experience - Christmas Edition

12.13.2016

The CONNOR'S Experience "Christmas Edition"

The Christmas season is just around the corner and as we all know it's a busy time of year with lots of stuff to organize, especially planning for Christmas dinner. So, for all of you guys out there who are not off on holiday overseas and are staying at home in KL with no plans for Christmas dinner yet, then be sure to check out what The CONNOR'S Experience (TCE) has in store for you this coming festive season. I just want to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all of my readers and followers for following me throughout TCE and to let you know that it will be ending with a big bang! A special Christmas Edition menu of mouth watering and tasty festive treats has been constructed by some of KL's finest dining restaurants to help ease the stress of 1 less thing to worry about for all you busy people out there during the holiday season.  

I have a list of ideal restaurants and food to recommend to you all:

My Mandara Spa Club Med Cherating Review

Planning a trip to Club Med Cherating?

I took a short vacay at the end of September to accompany my bff Leonard to Club Med Cherating. He booked a 3D2N stay here and who did he asked? MEEEEE (yay!!! thank u Samanku Jones). Of course, for a month I was planning on what to do, what to see, before our road trip down to Kuantan. I specifically told Leonard, I ain't going to bungee jump or sky dive or do anything like that. My main aim is to relax, relax and relax. 

Wild About The Body Shop Christmas

12.12.2016

Jungle Bells Jungle Bells - ROAR

If you have read my Christmas / Birthday Wish List, I've listed The Body Shop as one of the top 10 gifts I would love to receive this year end! Yes! My birthday is coming, please angels out there if you can hear me... I'd really like the Oils of Life or Spa of the World gifts sets! Look at the packaging (again I'm all about packaging haha).

Reasons why they made it to my wish list, is because they're not just a brand out to suck your money. The Body Shop has always been an eco-warrior, it's all about the greater good and the better of earth. Their campaigns are all about charity, about sustainability, about the earth, saving endangered species and eco-friendly. If you go to their Facebook now you'll see there's plenty of "UPCYCLED" a.k.a recycling ideas this festive season.

NARS Sarah Moon Holiday 2016 Collection

inspired by the nostalgic futurish of Metropolis

This Christmas, NARS Cosmetic teams up with fashion photographer Sarah Moon to expose every facet of the feminine with a limited edition collection that evokes and provokes. Blurring the line between real and surreal, you'll be captivated by how she translates her work of art through her dream-like lens into the beautiful holiday collection with Francois Nars.

GET CRAZY FOR 12.12 ON SGSHOP

12.08.2016

Get Ready To Be Lucky on SGSHOP!

I'm such a huge fan of SGShop Malaysia now that I stalked them almost every day for deals. I shopped during the 11.11 (spent RM500++) and selected my parcels to be shipped by sea. I'm expecting them to arrive soon this month. Roughly about a month, they would arrive if I'm not mistaken. From my first experience reviewing SGShop Malaysia I have come to love this site because of all the attractive cheap products I can buy from Taobao China without encountering stupid issues (because SGShop acts as an agent to make sure my hauls are done properly and efficiently!). I do trust them now compared to other shops.

My Year End Wish List

12.04.2016

here comes my yearly wish list!

If anyone is wondering what I really really want for Christmas is... well I don't know. I am quite happy right now. I have things I need and I don't need things I don't need because I learnt from renting my own place is that packing to move again (and again) is a big headache. Also, I live in a studio apartment where space is limited and storage is well challenging.

My Credit Card RM10K Debt

11.28.2016

the story of me and my credit

If you saw the movie Shopaholic then sister, you and me we share the same beating heart to shop , shop and shop. Hey! we helped keep the economy going. Shopping is really fun, and it relieves stress that's why they call it retail therapy... until we see our credit card bill and we get stressed again!  Then we go to Hagen Dazs for desserts (stressed spelt backwards is desserts). When did I spend RM500 on Pandora? Oh, now I remember, during the buy 2 free 1 ring sale D'OH! (Homer Simpson).

Say Hello To The Smile Makers

11.25.2016

the women's guide to smiling (adult version)

Today I'm about to embark on something more... educational. You probably already know about the birds and the bees from your parents television such as Sex & The City (SATC), if not your friends, school's sex education or another source of information (google). I'm going to warn you first, if you're not over 18 years old please ALT+F4 (shutdown) now. Why? because today I'm going to talk about smiling. No, not the normal smiling but the adult kind after some sexy time alone / not alone.

The Rainy Day Coffee, Lepaq Lepaq

11.13.2016

have you drank the rainy day coffee?

Last weekend, I brought the girls to have lunch at Lepaq Lepaq cafe in the city. It's situated at Bukit Ceylon, near Changkat. It's another hipster cafe built on industrial concept. Walls are grey - black, ceiling high windows, minimalist. I like how they style the bottom of the cafe but not the top floor. The bottom floor has the dessert and bread selection to choose from while the top floor is where customers are mostly seated due to the ample amount of space available. However, there's not much decor concept above, it's just lined with rows and rows of tables and chairs. Almost prison like, but that's what the cafe concepts are these days.

Everyone wants the new iPhone 7 after watching the launching video (okay Apple fans?). With it's sleek body, new improve speakers, camera and those airpods, I'm just beating myself up for buying the iPhone 6S 4 months too early. It's things like this that gets me so angry!

What happens when you already have a phone and a new phone comes out?

Mon Cheri Petale CC Cover Review

11.08.2016

Meet Mon Chéri’s innovative CC Cushion: the Petale CC Cover
a new luxurious foundation for the confident you

If you're an avid supporter of beauty brands created by Malaysians, then this is one brand you should check out. Caroline Oi is a Malaysian who founded Mon Cheri Essentials. I blogged about Mon Cheri a few years ago when they first launched in Malaysia here. I fell in love with their Parisian romance inspired packaging and that the fact all their products are made free from SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), Paraben, Linolin, Mineral Oil and fragrance-free.

Impulse Studio Review

11.03.2016

Impulse Studio KL Sentral

Are you living a very busy and unhealthy lifestyle and unable to find the time to fit in a few gym sessions a week? Do you often think about getting fitter and healthier but never get round to doing it, making excuses and keep pushing it down the list of your priorities? Or feeling that all the hours you're putting in at the gym are not paying off and reaping rewards as quick as you had expected, leaving you feeling disheartened and disillusioned about getting fit?

Well, if you answered yes to these questions then Impulse Studio has the solution for you.

CONNOR's Stout Porter: The X Bangsar Review

11.02.2016

have you heard of the X?

The X, Bangsar Baru was the location for the latest installment of the CONNOR'S Experience for my partner and me along with some of our blogging friends last Monday night. Situated in the popular Telawi 3 area, The X is a casual dining bar/restaurant serving a fusion of very reasonably priced Western & Japanese food, as well as, a wide range of beers and spirits. Mysterious, a certain je ne sais pas to it or perhaps something valuable and exciting to be found here as in X marks the spot on a treasure map!

MY SGSHOP MALAYSIA REVIEW (TAOBAO AGENT)

10.25.2016

unboxing 10kg worth of haul from SGshop Malaysia
(in video I mention 7kg, no it's actually 10kg)

My last shopping experience with Taobao SEA (South East Asia) ended in a shopper's nightmare. It made me think twice about shopping there again. Useless customer service, bad management, bad system. To summarized, their attempts to make it more attractive to S.E.A customers bananas like me (meaning do not read or write Chinese) failed. Till to-date I am still heartbroken, stressed and disappointed over my orders which in total amounted to RM1.5k. I had more than 10 orders made, and after months of fighting with the agency who engaged me to review Taobao SEA, then only one order made it through.

Diabetes Type II : Start with the Right Duo

Let's Talk About Diabetes
(source: hwww.thewalkingencyclopedia.com/diabetes-mellitus)

Today I have decided to again go cold turkey on Coca-Cola. I can't keep track of how many times I have tried to quit. The longest was one year (2014-2015) where I changed my eating habits, got on a weight loss program and lost 20kg. Then I fell in love, worked for a start-up company, juggle between a community I started and dabble in party planning. That's when the tiny voice, started calling me back. From there I lost control and was again back to square one.

The Killer Ayam Goreng Kunyit Bangsar UOA

10.15.2016

 if your favourite food might cause you cancer

Just wanted to share something horribly wrong with something deliciously tempting that happened to me a few days ago. You see lunch time around Menara UOA is like a battlefield. The good food always gets this long big ass waiting line. That's one sure fire sign that this is good, we must eat it. My favourite lunch time food is Ayam Goreng Kunyit (Tumeric Fried Chicken) which costs as low as RM5 from the roadside hawker stores.

Look Pa! My CONNOR'S Stout Porter Brewery Tour Experience

10.10.2016

the story of CONNOR'S Stout Porter

Last week my partner and I had the pleasure of being invited to take part in a guided tour courtesy of CONNOR'S Stout Porter to the Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Berhad in Shah Alam to discover everything about CONNOR’S Stour Porter. When I say everything, I meant everything! All sight, smell, taste and after taste. From how the ingredients that goes into it, to the process and how it’s brewed. The best part of the tour? We got to pour our very own perfect pint.

PSA: Tinder Couple Safe Sex

10.09.2016


have you met Tinderella?

There's this really funny cartoon on youtube called Tinderella. Yeah I know the song does spark the tune Cinderelly Cinderelly from Disney's Cinderella (you know where Gus Gus starts singing). Back in the olden days, fairy tales are... well all that's magical and full of love and nice things ending with happily ever after. Fast forward the modern era, girls are more liberated from the past and has become an equal to the pesky men.

What happens when "ever after" is recreated now and with the introduction of Tinder (as the "matchmaker"). Laugh at this video if you must. The uncanny resemblance is... lol.

CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING 2016
Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony
11 to 13 November 2016

I'm a YTL member so I receive updates of latest marketing promotions. This one, in particular, caught my attention as I'm currently in a year-end mood although it's just October (haha). It's been ages since I been to Cameron Highlands. I don't particular like the place because the trip makes me dizzy (long winding road up). I also don't drive so I am not sure how I will go up there, perhaps taking a bus.

But this latest promotion is all too Christmassy to resist. The promotion is as follows:

"The cool highland air marks that time of year where traditions and festive celebrations draw near! Join us for a magical weekend at our annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony from 11 to 13 November 2016.

This year, a colourful Christmas Market will be held at our classic hotel where you can soak up the sights and sounds as you wander around; the aroma of fresh pine, warm mulled wine, local delicacies and crafted gifts enjoyed with a chorus of cheery carols will get you into the spirit of the season."

Planning My Birthday Trip Again

10.05.2016

 my 2015/2016 birthday memories in Bali

I know it's way too early to be counting down to my birthday but this is the best part of life isn't it? To celebrate your birthday and what more overseas. I imagine myself in a nice beach area, relaxing and doing nothing - nada - nothing. The year end is always my favourite - Christmas then New Year's Even then my birthday (yes I am a New Year baby! I shall gloat about this because it's the best gift my mum gave to me).

Beauty Gene Professional Review

Beauty Gene Professional, Mont Kiara

One of the reasons I started a blog was to share about the beauty services and self-pampering activities that I often indulge in with my own money. Contrary to the belief that I get sponsored all the time, I would like to say I am not easily bought because I am an independent woman, capable of paying for her own experiences. Of course, it's different from when you're a student, in your 20's and in your 30's.

I often try new outlets out if they have a good deal or an introductory package / first-time trial. My recent experience is something on my bucket list. A very nice "atas" looking eyelash extension centre in Mont Kiara called Beauty Gene Professional. They're from Japan and appears very promising to me. I spotted it when I go to 76Style for my monthly hair treatments.  Really, really wanted to try it but it's so bloody expensive. It ranges from RM278 - RM638 for eyelash extensions.

(you know how I have a love affair with eyelash extensions!)

Then one day I found a deal on Groupon for only RM68 instead of RM348 for 80 pieces eyelash extension (40 on each eye). Normally you would require at least 50 for each eye (more or less). The beautician would try to get you to buy more eyelashes but the top ups are still considerably cheaper than paying full price so top up sensibly okay!

(I top up for mine at this place, can't remember how much, wasn't that much)

I made an appointment, the beauticians seem not be fluent in English. Finally arriving, a local beautician attended to me and explained the whole procedure. The type of eyelash extensions they do is individual lashes, and not in clusters. Meaning 1-on-1, resulting in a natural, beautiful looking eyelashes. These are not as troublesome as the clusters eyelash extensions, which is stuck as a "cluster" onto your eyelashes. It's more dramatic, more visible hence should one or more cluster falls, you would look really funny. Also, they're not very good for your eyelashes (damages your natural eyelashes - many reasons, I will not exlain here). Not unless you find a really good centre that has lightweight cluster eyelashes like Pink Passion Signature Salon (my regular one).


the length, curl and style of the eyelash extensions available

I was shown a choice of eyelash extension styles, either Natural, American Dolly, Camel or Narrow Maetal. Which I like very much so I know what I am getting into. She also explains the type of length involved. I always go for short to long for my eyes, it makes my Chinese eyes pretty haha.

The whole procedure normally takes up to an hour but I spent over an hour here because my beautician kept attending to other customer's inquiries (understaff?). I hope they improve on this because no one likes to be made to wait, doing nothing. I must comment that the glue they use - wasn't smelly, or stinging. The lashes were natural, light and workmanship beautiful. It didn't look fake at all.


I choose Camel style 100 lashes (50 on each eye)

Normally eyelash extensions would last up to a month or more if you're not a newbie. I've been doing mine for 3 years now. If you experience lashes falling off within a week, the shop normally corrects it for you free. My lashes fell off within a few hours. After a few days, more than 10 has fallen off. I think the glue wasn't strong enough? but since I was away in Korea, I didn't get to correct them.

My friend Sydney bought the same and went for hers. Experience the same thing (so I am going to blacklist this centre now). I didn't experience this at other centres so they can't tell me that it was my fault. Most shops would blame your lashes being too weak or etc when this happens. Ignore them. They should know better when they examine your lashes prior to taking your money.

The Verdict:
The place is clean, bright, looks like a surgical clinic. The seats are not very comfortable, especially if you're on it for long hours. My lashes look natural, but that's what you get for individual eyelash extensions. Not much drama look difference but I like that the ends are long so I have nice pretty eyes. However, the price for an eyelash extension work here doesn't justify the money I'm paying, especially when they start falling off within a day. I hope they improve. Haru at Publika is much better and cheaper in comparison for individual eyelash extensions.

The BBP X CONOR'S Stour Porter Experience October

10.03.2016

our next CONNOR'S Experience is at BBP!

For all you meat lovers out there, especially pork fans who enjoy their food served in the good old-fashioned down to earth traditional pub grub style, you should definitely come check out #TheBBP The Club, Bukit Utama, PJ. Just grab a ride on your Grab app, set your drop off point and ride either via Budget Taxi / Grabcar.  Don't forget to enter the exclusive promo code "GRABCONNORS" to enjoy RM8 off for 4 rides to participating outlets (open to new and existing customers that pay via credit/debit card only). You'll also get a FREE Half Pint of CONNOR'S Stout Porter when you flash your booking receipt.

(Note: Each booking receipt is entitled to one (1) FREE Half Pint of CONNOR'S Stout Porter)

don't worry, your meat won't be burnt black

If you're a bit concerned and worried that the name might suggest an image of a very incompetent and inexperienced chef overcooking and burning the Babi to a crisp, don't worry it's all superbly cooked Babi goodness in here! :) Google and you'll know I'm not lying! Even their Facebook Fan Page shows an average of nearly 5-star ratings, a total of 477 reviews and counting, of which over 460 were rated good or really good. Here's a shocker, they just turn 1 year old! (Launched in Sept 2015).

The official mascot is seen plastered all over the restaurant's windows.  Look up and you'll be able to also read some naughty / cheeky quotes as well. Some so outrageous, I almost choked on my meat. e.g "Real Men Rub Their Meats". 

say hello to theBBP

It's essentially a gastropub style restaurant catering for all the family and serving a varied range of juicy mouth-watering BBQ meats, their all famous succulent and tender pork ribs accompanied by delicious sides and finger licking snacks. All washed down with the perfect accompaniment of a cold creamy pint of CONNOR'S Stout Porter to provide an ideal lunch or after work dinner, culminating in an entertaining night out.


it is a popular hangout for many here!


First impressions indicated a lively & friendly ambience combined with a relaxing chilled vibe emanating from the stylish & cozy interior dining area through to the outside 360º bar, beer garden, and the sprawling balcony. Last Friday night when my partner and I dined there with our friends, I noticed a diverse range of customers from families and groups of friends celebrating special occasions; to colleagues socializing with after work drinks, to couples enjoying an evening meal.

the night is young my friends! eat and drink!

At the Meat Station section, you are able to personally handpick your preferred choice and cut of meat, which is then cooked on the BBQ right in front of you! I think this is a great concept, which creates a more hands-on approach to dining for the customer, giving him/her a greater freedom of choice which is usually only available at buffets, as well as a fun way to interact with the chef. At the Salad Station, you can pick and choose all your favourite leafy greens and healthy accompaniments to your meat dish.

But for the month of October, you must try the CONNOR'S STOUT PORTER INFUSED FOOD! Which comes with a full pint of CONNOR'S Stout Porter.

 Caramelized CONNOR'S Pork Belly served with Kyuri
and 1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter RM30++

Our appetizer consisted of small portions of fine pork belly infused with caramelized CONNOR'S sauce and melted cheese on top of individual slices of kyuri (Japanese cucumber) Tasty and full of flavor with the sweet crispy pork belly combining well with the crunchy kyuri to give you a perfect light refreshing snack to start your meal.

Slow Cooked pork belly marinated in CONNOR'S & spices
1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter RM38++

Marinated with secret spices and CONNOR'S ale for 4 hours then braised for 2 hours or until tender. Served with bacon mash, which is ideal for soaking up the yummy CONNOR'S Stout Porter  and pork crackling which adds crunch and flavour to compliment the dish. Personally, one of my favourite dishes of the night, I thought it was very well cooked succulent and tender pork belly, fluffy creamy mash and also nicely presented by the chef.


CONNOR'S infused sausage platter with
1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter RM45++


Spicy Hungarian, German Pepper, Bacon Bratwurst, and Chorizo Sausages accompanied with caramelised onions. Thoroughly enjoyed the selection on offer big thumbs up for these popular types of sausages tasted delicious with the added infusion of CONNOR'S Stout Porter combined with the herbs and spices. Traditionally sausages are usually eaten with beer, so I was interested and curious to find out how they would taste being washed down with a cold creamy pint of CONNOR'S Stout Porter instead. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed to discover that 4 different types of Sausages chargrilled over the BBQ and brushed with a sweet honey CONNOR'S sauce tasted just as good if not better with CONNOR'S Stout Porter than with beer.

Braised meatballs with sweet onion CONNOR'S sauce
with 1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout Porter RM30++

Slow braised beef meatballs cooked in a CONNOR'S sauce with caramelised onion adding to the flavour. Served with sun-dried tomato bread for dipping to soak up all the delicious sauce. Some of the best meatballs I've tasted juicy & tender and packed full of flavour combines perfectly with the sweet onion CONNOR'S sauce to produce a winning combination on my tongue!


Barbeque CONNOR'S honey spare ribs with
1 full pint of CONNOR’S Stout PorterRM90++

800 grams of juicy and tender pork spare ribs, chargrilled over wood fire chips and glazed with sweet honey CONNOR'S sauce accompanied with mixed grill vegetables. Even though I'm a big fan of BBQ spare ribs anyway, this was still my favourite dish of the night. It tasted well prepared and cooked as the meat just effortlessly fell off the bone. So succulent, juicy and tender fusing perfectly together with the tasty and sweet honey CONNOR'S sauce which complimented each other.

Connor's Experience - a night made right

The inspiration behind these dishes according to the chef, is due to CONNOR'S Stout Porter being a gorgeous and really balanced in taste so it's a perfect compliment. The BBP has become famous for its pork so it's no surprise that you will find that many of its most popular, as well as, newly created dishes were chosen to include all that Babi yumminess, enhancing its flavor with a CONNOR'S infused angle. CONNOR'S Stout Porter has been fused in all of these specially selected dishes through glazing, marinating, sautéing and BBQ. The sides have been selected to enhance the quality of the meal. Whether it be to soak up the delicious CONNOR'S sauces with sundried bread or bacon mash, or complement sausages with simple caramelized onions, there's a distinct method for choosing each side dish for each main. The result is a real ploughman's meal strong and hearty to fill your stomach!

I have no hesitation in recommending The BPP to anyone that is looking for good honest traditional wholesome reasonably priced pub style food with the standard of a decent middle of the range restaurant. Ideal for couples, families & large groups of friends who are interested in holding a party or celebration of special occasions with 10-150 guests.
