    SK-II 15th Anniversary Gala Dinner Recap


    the day I saw the beautiful Fauziah Latiff

    Last month, I was invited to the SK-II 15th Anniversary gala dinner held at Grand Hyatt, Kuala Lumpur. The dress code says formal in maroon or black. I decided to go wearing my Flow dress in black, the one that makes me look slender even though I've meat haha. SK-II is a Proctor & Gamble (P&G) skincare product and if you remembered, I went on the P&G VisionHouse Beauty event at Bangkok, Thailand last year.

    this is me showing off my hotel room haha

    I was one of the 200 honored guests invited to the gala dinner to celebrate SK-II's 15th Anniversary in Malaysia. SK-II gave away gifts and prizes for the top 15 spenders and loyal users of SK-II. They showcase users of various ages with results clearly on their face, after using SK-II products. I was pretty impressed and dreamt away if I could have clear skin like the ladies that night.

    the SK-II cake created by Su, Delectable by Su!

    What a coincidence that I bumped into Su at SK-II, Su's designer cakes of course! P&G Malaysia and Singapore country chief executive officer, Ellie Xie along with SK-II global ambassador Le Sinje and Malaysia brand ambassador Fauziah Latiff officiated the ceremony by cutting this cake up. 

    with SK-II brand ambassador, Fauziah Latiff

    a gala dinner to be remembered

    the only photo of myself that I took
    (see the lights above? it's so dazzlingly elegant)

    delicious food served by Grand Hyatt

    Fauziah Latiff sang a few songs & vowed the guests

    what's a skincare gala dinner without the skincare?

    this is not the actual FTE! it's a pledge bottle
    (with every pledge given, you get to redeem for a mystery gift)

    the prizes for the top spenders & loyal users

    Kelly, Pink Stilettos, Shazwani & Me
    (borrowed this photo from Pink Stilettos)

    The silly me isn't much a camwhore person so I borrowed this group photo from Pink Stilettos to show what we wore to the dinner. My fiance was quite upset that I was wearing a nice dress (out of the ordinary) that while I'm blogging about this, he angrily scolded me and off the tv and lights to go upstairs to sulk. I finish blogging in the dark (how challenging lol). Thanks SK-II for inviting me to your 15th Anniversary gala dinner at Grand Hyatt, it was truly a wonderful evening and every guest including myself, was shocked when we received our mystery gift. What was mine? It was the whitening spot corrector :) a very much needed skincare product to fade away the pigmentations on my face. Thank you so much!

    I was eye-ing this bridal skincare set for months!
    (it comes with a Clarisonic Plus lookalike!)

    the SK-II Best of the Best set to be won!

    In conjunction with SK-II's 15th Anniversary, I spotted a contest that's going on at SK-II Facebook. The SK-II Best of the Best set worth RM2,616 is waiting to be won in the Top Spender contest before 31st May at all SK-II counters. Only while stocks last, tomorrow is the last day to go spend your way to a best bust set! Terms and conditions apply.

    Star Trek Into The Darkness IMAX 3D TGV 1 Utama Experience


    treated my fiance to his fave movie

    When I heard my fiance and his geek buddies talking about an upcoming movie so excitedly, I knew it has got to be Star Trek. My fiance is a trekkie (Star Trek fan) but he doesn't go all out wearing a Star Trek uniform like all the trekkies. When TGV 1 Utama decided to organized the IMAX 3D Movie Preview for Star Trek Into The Darkness advance ticket sales to watch on May 10th, I grabbed the chance to surprise my fiance!

    our first IMAX 3D experience to watch the Earth burn

    SO you can imagine the look on my fiance's face when I told him I have the tickets (YES! Girl Rocks) he immediately turn down a road trip to Penang just to "accompany" me to watch movie (this is what he told his friends). Yeah right so "nice of him" suddenly. We now know the way to a man's heart is not only through his stomach but also through his favorite movie (heighten the excitement 10x by watching on IMAX 3D for the best cinema experience).

    love the new TGV 1 Utama

    It was like walking into a training session at the Starfleet Academy!

    Of course it's been sometime since I last visited TGV 1 Utama due to their renovation to revamp the place. It's also by time because the cinema space is small and old, so definitely time for a makeover to fight with other cinemas! (you know which one haha). TGV was my first cinema love when they came out of nowhere 15 years ago. The change the way we watch movies and I will never forget the fond memories of watching movies every week with my family in Klang, TGV Bukit Raja.

    we watch the best movies in the best cinemas

    The newly revamped TGV 1 Utama is of course the best cinema now so far since it's new! And one don't need to travel all the way to Berjaya Times Square or Sunway Pyramid to watch IMAX anymore. When May 10th finally came, we were so excited that we came hours earlier just to wait in TGV 1 Utama. Upon reaching, the place was full of STAR TREK FANS! @ TREKKIES! in STAR TREK UNIFORMS! It was like I was part of a Star Trek adventure. We were too shy to take photographs with them (so u can't see any here sob sob).

    the new TGV 1 Utama in red hot look

    [REWIND] Back then there's no such thing as IMAX yet alone 3D. This came about few years ago and I have never been a fan of 3D movie watching because the glasses gives me a headache! Also I don't know what's IMAX, it's probably just better than the usual movie screening I see right? I was so wrong ... so dam wrong, after watching IMAX TGV 1 Utama. It was 10 times no 100 times better than normal cinemas with clearer, better and almost there screen experience. The sound system was *face palm* fantastic.

    From traveling back in time to the pre-historic age of the dinosaurs, to looking into the future on board the International Space Station, the power of the The IMAX Experience® has long transported audiences to places far beyond the reach of most people. Now, through the magic of IMAX DMR (Digital Re-Mastering), moviegoers can also experience the larger-than-life adventure, drama and emotion of their favorite Hollywood films in IMAX theatres.

    so many Trekkie fans watching today

    watch the Star Trek Into The Darkness trailer here

    surprised that the 3D glasses fits on nicely!
    (even when I'm wearing my glasses)

    Captain Kurt, Spock & "mysterious guy" is my new loves

    a bit of camwhoring before the movie starts!

    IMAX TGV 1 Utama has now become the top my list to watch blockbuster movies in. They have the best cinematic 3D experience with sound systems and technology that blew my mind off completely! I am so happy that movie watching has become so advance and so easily accessible to movie fans in Malaysia. Though the price of a ticket maybe too steep (RM26 per pax), I believe it's worth it when you come out satisfied, happy and comfortable throughout the movie. I'm looking forward to watch "After Earth" and "Man of Steel" (superman) if it's available on IMAX at TGV 1 Utama. (either 2D or 3D). Bravo TGV for the improvement at 1 Utama, my second home.

    P.S: Readers if you have not watch Star Trek Into The Darkness, do go all out to watch on IMAX because it's going to be so worth your time and money! I watched it twice already at TGV 1 Utama.

    Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner Review


    rose scented body jam anyone?

    Yesterday I went to Hammam Baths, Publika for a Moroccan spa treat. By now you'll probably know I'm seriously crazy about massages of any kind haha. Hammam Baths is one of my favorite spas because they use argan rose oils in their massages. I even ordered a rose hair mask (but wasn't impressed with the results). Back home, I remembered I had this tub of rose jam scented body conditioner (not body cream) so I continue my Moroccan experience at home. The weather is sunny and dry at the moment, my skin needed that extra oomph.

    With scoops of cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, almond oil and Argan oils, this is the most luxurious body softener that ever was (if we don't say so ourselves!). After washing up, slather yourself all over with this new invention. Rinse, pat dry and revel in supremely soft, rose-scented skin.

    I just got to gush about this product because I have never used one like this before so it's pretty interesting (which I love! I love discovering new bath products). Just like your hair, you shampoo and then you conditioner to moisturized it so it's soft, silky and manageable when it's dry. The Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner is just like that, minus the hair part. Ro is short for Rowena, the lady who made this rose-scented shower "lotion" because she loves the sultry soft feeling hair conditioner gives. 

     made of skin yummy oils & butter
    (click here for list of ingredients)

    This particular product is not entirely made of fresh ingredients, it's part natural part using safe synthetics to create. Using scoops of cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, almond oil and Argan oils, and the fragrant scent of fresh rose petals, Lush is confident this is one of the most luxurious body softener ever made. I for one, agree because this is my first body conditioner and it brings me back to Moroccan Spa experience, only I enjoyed it at home after a shower.

    watch me show it off in video

    texture: smooth creamy lotion

    It's pretty easy to use, just shower and just before you think you're done. Slater on this baby all over your baby, enjoy the slippery moment and then rinse off under the shower. You'll love the smooth soft feeling it gives you. You might even accidentally use it as a body cream, but I rather have the shower experience.

    smelling like rose jam for few hours

    Argan oil, a Moroccan treasure used for skin softening
    (for over a hundred years)

    P.S anyone a Lush fan here in Malaysia? because Lush is coming to Malaysia soon! (this year?) I won't tell when or where or how! Just stay tune on http://www.lushcosmetics.my. Can't wait to find out what's in store and how much the prices would be like!

    What I like: 
    I love the rose jam scented body conditioner. It's fun to use in the shower after you cleanse your body. The slippery feeling of having a velvety cover over you and then the final rinse off makes you feel like a Moroccan Princess. Skin is soft for a few hours, I love to use this right before I go to sleep because of the sensual relaxing scent. The rose jam scent might be a turn off to some. The scent doesn't last after a couple of hours.

    What I don't like:
    The price tag. It's $55 / 225g. That's about RM120++ after conversion for a tub of body conditioner! But I know argan and rose oil, they're not cheap. It takes over 60,000 roses to make just one ounce of essential oil! The rose oil used in this is called "Rosa damascena" the damask rose, which is widely grown in Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia, Pakistan, India, Uzbekistan, Iran and China.
