    RECLAIM OUR STREETS - Marie Claire Malaysia Anti-Snatch Theft Campaign


    Marie Claire Malaysia (May) Issue speaks for us!
    reclaim our streets back!

    I can't say how much I hate them snatch thieves, still walking around among us, riding their bikes as if they owned the streets. They come out and hunt either alone or in packs, watching, lurking for the next victim. They don't care what happens to us, if we are hurt or if we die from their actions. Google "snatch thieves" and you can see countless of stories from people who had the unfortunate encounter with one. Our streets use to be safe, I use to run around, playing under the rain or fishing along the drains. Now it's not safe anymore because of the evil that lurks around. No matter how young or how old you are, whether you are a female or male, they don't care as long they get something.

    the rising crime of snatch thieves is no joke
    my snatch thief story on Marie Claire Msia (May)

    I hate them and I want our goverment to do something about these bastards. I want to be able to walk around my own neighbourhood without being hurt.  I WANT OUR STREETS BACK SAFE so I signed the Marie Claire Anti-Snatch Theft Campaign so that someone up there will hear us. Please help spread the news and get more people to sign so we can have a greater voice together.

    Thank you Marie Claire and writer Renyi for sharing my snatch-theft story on Marie Claire Magazine. For my readers please becareful when you walk around outside. I used to think it won't happen to me but it did and it was quick and painful. I was fortunate that I did not break my skull/face on the tar road.
    In fact, God has protected my face from harm. It is a miracle.

    A Bubbly Lobster-licious Affair at Cristallo di Luna


    fell in love with Bollinger champagne

    Champagne and Lobster, my two favourite things. What could be more luxurious than sipping Champagne and having a yummy lobster meal at a fine looking restaurant with a magnificent view of KL? Mei Yee from IamAWitch.Com, thank you for inviting me to be your honored guest and also for the photos! Also thanks to the people that made this happened - Sunrise Wine Sdn Bhd & Cristallo di Luna, it was a meal that I will definitely come back again for!

     a James Bond bubbly affair

    The theme of the night? James Bond! oh how creative they are in making the entire evening so blockbuster-ish. The menu has dishes named after James Bond movie titles, e.g "Tomorrow Never Dies" salad. The lobsters for the night were served in two styles - lobster thermidor and the other stir fried with thai basil. They were delicious! I loved the later one which is creamy and juicy.

     the live lobster exclusively flown from Boston

    Those are not the only styles for the lobster,  there's a total of 6 styles for you to choose from- grilled, baked, steamed and lobster bisque. The best sellers are Lobster Thermidor - sauteed lobster, gratinated with cheese and bechamel with a side of garden vegetables and potatoes.

     Lobster Thermidor
     stir fried lobster with thai basil

    Of course let's talk about the star of the night - Bollinger Special Cuvee NV, a special multi vintage blends of Grands and Premier Crus grapes which has a unique combination of power and finesse, establishing the difference and shows its commitment to quality. Bollinger is also famed for being the signature Champagne under the label of James Bond 007 (hence the theme of the night). I love the bubbly champagne, it was not overpowering or bitter. I wanted more and more of it after my first sip! I am not normally the wine type of girl, but I learn that good champagne will make anyone fall in love with wine. The fine bubbles and golden hue played with my feelings while the aromas of pear, brioche and spices left me satisfied after my Lobster meal. It was a good pairing and I loved every bit of it.

    taken with my iphone 3gs "the night"
    A very nice place to enjoy Champagne and Lobster, Cristallo is a non-smoking area. My bf will definitely like this place. I am so bringing him here to enjoy this meal again under the stars. The KL view brings a sense of romance too. Thankfully this Lobster-licious event is not over and done with because it's a running promotion from now until end of June, 2011 (hooraaah!!!).

    Cristallo di Luna

    The Lobster-licious promotion runs from now until 30th June, 2011 and is available for Lunch at Soi23 and Dinner at both venues (Cristallo di Luna and Soi23). It's priced at RM128++ for one whole lobster! made to perfection to your liking. This is a pretty darn good deal imho coz I have lobster dinners in PJ and it costs me RM200++ for one whole lobster! Not to mention the lobsters u see in the photos are the lobsters served in this promotion so I'm definitely going to treat my bf to a nice big lobster!

    To complement your meal, a bottle of white wine at additional RM90++ per bottle or the Bollinger Special Cuvee NV at only RM250++ during happy hours (5pm-9pm). After this the price of a Bollinger bubly is priced at RM300++ exclusively available at Luna Chill Out Bar.

    Cat Ear Headbands aka Necomimi??


    brain wave Cat Ears Head Band???

    OMG I know cat ears are so dam cute things to wear and I have been thinking about getting one but I can't find really cute n good ones in Malaysia besides the el-cheapo ones where u wear on Halloween Parties. Surfing online, I see this brain wave electronic cat ear headband which not only look super cute n not el-cheapo like, it also MOVES following your brainwaves! serious! check out the video below from youtube:


    when you're in focus, the ears stand up!
    (and when u look at cute guys it stands up too.. darn)

    I wonder how much is this!!! so want one. Imagining wearing it to work and while you're focusing on work it stands up. Your boss will come scold u for wearing a stupid thing to work but when u explain to him that it's good for staffs to wear coz he can see who's "concentrating" at work and who's slacking off (ears droops down). LOL..so much... for getting him buy it for everyone if he does.

    Second Trip Down The Cres Wellness Lane

    do you know what's at the Cocoon?

    The Cres Wellness centre that I have been going is at a floor called the Cocoon. Sounds weird and cool at the same time. This area is on the top floor of Gardens where The Gardens Club is located. It's a fancy area totally different from the rest of the floors. When you first take the escalator up, you'll be immediately vowed by the calming scent of aromatherapy being used on this floor welcoming you to the pamper zone.

    second trip to wellness lane
    This is my second trip to Cres Wellness for my facial, it's been nearly a month since I did my first facial here. I have been told that you need to do facial at least once a month to maintain your skin but those with problems would need to at least come after 3 weeks. I wanted to try something different for my second facial, something I never done before. My therapist recommended I do the Hydro Cell Rejuvenating Micro Channel Therapy. Really long name for a facial treatment right?

    the difference between the facial and body treatment rooms

    The Hydro Cell Rejuvenating Micro Channel Therapy (worth RM350 for 2 hours) is a facial treatment that stimulates the renewal of the skin cells and enhances collagen and elastin production in the skin naturally. With the help of Cellinique products and the use of a roller with tiny tiny spiky thingies on it called the "Micro Channel Roller" , the treatment products is penetrated deep within our skin so that our skin is awaken and cells will regenerate. This facial is great if you want a younger, scar free, firmer and more elastic results.

    I was really happy that my therapist recommended this treatment to me coz I have some scars left from my previous accident with a snatch thief. I just wonder if they have this treatment for body so I can regenerate the skin around my hands and improve my scar healing process.

    Cres Wellness has lockers for you to keep your things
    (and u wear the pearl bracelet key around)

    As usual I was given a scalp massage to relax and improve my blood circulation (relaxnya). Then my facial begin like any other facial (cleansing, scrubbing, extraction). Speaking about extraction, my therapist did something different to my face this round. She used a COLD STEAMER instead of a hot steamer on me! I never tried a cold steamer before to soften my pores before an extraction is done! I asked her why and she said my face is sensitive so it's much better to use a cold steamer instead of a hot steamer. It soothes but also softens my pores so that extraction would be less painful.

    weird and thorny object used on my face!

    Then comes the part of that spiky spiky hand roller object u see in the photo above. It's called the Micro Channel Roller. Again this is something new to me! This spiky roller was used along with ampules on my face, instead of feeling a slippery object rubbing through my face I felt prickly pain and excitement through the process. I come to love the feeling though (omg). My therapist says this is used to reduce wrinkles, scars and depressions of the skin. The roller has very fine needles to pierce the epidermis thereby stimulating collagen formation and resulting in "micro-channel effect" (hence the long facial name). This helps to infuse vitamin creams, serums and other topical applications to increase effectiveness of the skincare products.

    70% discount for any Facial Therapy
     + FREE steam bath + 2pcs of RM20 Product Voucher.

    Sounds scary and interestingly new to try? Then u should try it like me! (adventurous haha). For the sake of beautiful, younger looking skin and to improve scars, you can try this facial or any other facial (but not worth rm400 above facial treatments) at 70% discount for 1st trial facial!

    To get the "70% discount for 1st trial facial + FREE Steam Bath and 2 pcs of product voucher"  just shout out your name and email at this comment link made by me to get it (Cres Wellness Facebook Wall - under my name). Those who previously participated cannot get the same promotion again but u can recommend it to your friends or family to try.

    Results of The Hydro Cell Rejuvenating Micro Channel Therapy

    The results weren't that visible right after my facial treatment was done, though you can see that I'm probably more glow than before and cheeks plumper. My therapist told me I would see the improvement after a few days, earliest a day or two after this facial. She says this facial is good for pigmentation too. After listening to that I monitor my face condition for a week. True enough I have really nice plumper and soft skin for days! I wonder what happens if I continue with this facial? will I look 10 years younger? I didn't see my pigmentation lighten though but the young plump skin yes!
    My next facial, I'm going to try something different again and I heard it uses crystals! stay tune!
