  • Wind Chimes in a Bakery, a Love Companion Story.


    I watch Wind Chimes in a Bakery at home
    (on my Samsung Smart TV bought from SenQ at good deal)

    I never thought I would be hooked on watching those mini ads made into short stories. Usually released in a spam of days or weeks, these mini ads stories are brand driven and has drama in it to hook people, particularly the young, the online social savvy groups, the K-drama holics as well.

    the mini love story you won't want to miss

    Yeah I am talking about The Wind Chimes in a Bakery. I am not particularly a Samsung android supporter because I use Apple but after watching the mini series, I must say I am tempted to buy myself a Samsung S4! Why? because this show has managed to touch my heart and fire up the romantic in me.

    like all Korean love drama, there's love, death & a lot of crying
    (Ahmad Nabil said he really cried without eyedrops)

    Now the special thing about this movie is when you watch it, it feels totally like a Korean love drama series but the settings and characters are made in Malaysia. All this made come true by Korean director, Jang Jae Hyeok (think Girls Generation music videos).

    wind chimes are darn popular now thanks to this show

    The love story revolves around two different beings in the Klang Valley, a guy name Adam (Ahmad Nabil) from a poor background but has a big dream. Then comes along Sue (Koe Yeet) a rich girl with everything but love (she has a lot of love from parents imho) a timebomb brain tumor. I had an agonizing time waiting for the mini episodes to be on youtube, watched for a few minutes and then had to wait again AGONIZING! but readers you're lucky now coz you can wait it all on youtube.

    the trailer with crying Ahmad Nabil who capture our hearts
    (we want our boyfriends to be like him can?!)

    I got to attend the baking workshop too with Adam and Sue, baking the infamous and incredible red bean buns. This will have to be another story because I am not ready to blog about it (the amount of awesome photographs I have hard to choose!). It was a pleasure meeting them both, I love Sue a.k.a Koe Yeet so much, she's so bubbly and cute! I'm so proud to know we have such a talented young actor and actress with that big perfect smile. All thanks to Samsung Malaysia and Edelman (the pr firm) for making my wish come true to meet the young star crossed lovers on screen and baking red bean buns with them. 

    we ate red bean buns & not Samsung S4 for breakfast hahahah

    meet the casts of Wind Chimes in a Bakery

    meet Adam (Ahmad Nabil) & Sue (Koe Yeet)

    so did Adam died as well in the end?

    AND YOU BET for the finale, I didn't missed the chance to watch it live at GSC Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur organized by Samsung Malaysia again. They screen the entire episode again and the media, bloggers and friends watched it together with Adam and Sue! We had more incredible buns for breakfast and lunch. I went to Kenko Fish Spa after the screening to enjoy 30mins of fish nibbling session just to basked in the moment that I have finally catch the finale in the best way possible. You can catch the finale and the rest of the which was released yesterday on Samsung Malaysia Channel on youtube. The rest of the episodes are there too.

    Disclaimer: I am not paid to blog about Samsung, this is written on my own accord and from my heart because I love this mini web series. I didn't receive any monies or Samsung products as well. The invitation is extended to me by Edelman. All images is taken from Samsung Malaysia press release.

Yeap I just submitted a romantic photo of myself and my fiance, which is taken by a friend haha when we're eating burgers.

Sometimes we may sneak in some PDA (Public Display of Affection) like feeding each other with french fries in front of our friends and they go.. "eeewww what are they two doing" or "omg... so sweet" because we hardly show PDA in front of them. Most of them time it's like Enemy of the State haha! spies on a job.

    Genting Bus DROPS Down Cliff


    a bus with a 45pax seater, 15 feared dead

    happened today at around 2.45pm

    This is just in, my fiance told me Genting Bus got into an accident (I was like mehh?) but when he added "DOWN THE HILL CRASH" (I went woah?!!) I went to google and Lowyat forum there's people sharing pictures and comments on this! Some commented live at the accident area as well. Quite scary, especially when me and the SWATs are going to Genting this weekend for our SWAT Getaway.

    According to passerby, the bus lost control and crash into the rocky border down the cliff. Those who witness the accident is sharing the scene on facebook. The fire and bomba department is at the scene trying to rescue the passengers. We don't know who is alive now and I hope they all survive this!

    Luxola De-Stressing Kit Bloggers Giveaway


    how do I spend my weekends?

    I just came back from Bangkok and the trip was sure tiring. For 3 days 2 nights, I was basically hunting down street food with my fiance (it was more of trying to keep him occupied so he won't complain about my need to visit the shopping malls like Malaysia don't have any). From Pratunam to Khao San Road to the upper hill sides of Bangkok, food was everywhere. My legs hurt from walking so much! Not to mention my face was suffering from the constant exposure to the hot Bangkok weather. When I came back, I could see my skin flaking and getting white dry patches from the travel stress. Thank goodness my Luxola De-stress Kit arrived in time! I opened it up to find a face mask and a candle. The two perfect combination of a quickie skin rescue while bathing in the therapeutic scents of sweet smelling lychee flowers.

    A face mask is a blissful way to wake up a tired face and in a few minutes whiles it's working its magic can provide welcome 'time out" from a pressured life. 
    what's in my De-stress Kit?

    In my Luxola De-stress Kit, I was given two "GOLD" products from Australia. A face mask from a brand that I have never heard before so I was really eager to try this since it won the Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Hot 100 2012 award. The face mask is from the brand Alpha-H and the one thing that caught my attention was the name of the product - Liquid Gold Smoothing & Perfecting Mask. Immediately I picture gold cream mask!

    Alpha-H, the award winning face mask

    powerful fast acting dual performance mask

    The packaging looks pretty simple but as always the simplest looking products are usually luxury products with attention to details. For the award winning salon resurfacing mask, I read that it is a powerful mask that should be used once a week only at home. It uses 15% Glycolic Acid to exfoliates dead surface cells, a mini peel to leave the complexion visible more supple, dewy and radiant.
    • 15% Glycolic Acid exfoliates dead surface cells
    • Manuka Honey, Lavender and Vitamin E work to hydrate and plump the fresh new cells

    DIRECTIONS: Dampen face and apply cleanser. Massage over the entire face, avoiding the eye and lip areas, and remove with a warm damp face cloth.

    MOR Emporium Candle Lychee Flower

    The next product, is not new to me! I got to know about MOR candles from Luxola.com last year when they first launch in Malaysia. My first purchase from Luxola is the famed pink beauty blender that was seen in Glee, used by Kurt. I fell in love with the exquisite Emporium Candle housed in a luxurious glass topped with 24 carat gold decorations. When I unbox the de-stress kit, the heavenly scent of sweet smelling lychee flowers, ripe berries, soft powdery florals and a slight hint of Green Forest Woods filled the air! The perfect product for a sensory journey at home.
    • Soy Wax for a cleaner longer burn
    • 100 % cotton, lead free wick
    • Candle burn time up to 40 hours
    • 24 carat gold decal
    • Candle presented in a stunning glass vessel
    • Excellent scent throw

    P.S: The Lychee Flower is always out of stock on Luxola and on Mor website! It's really one of the best selling scents from the MOR Emporium Scented Candles collection.

    10mins in heaven
    home therapy to de-stress

    (highly recommended relaxing spa music!)

    second step is to light up an aromatic candle

    third step - put on your favorite face mask

    I'm using Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing & Perfecting Mask
    with Lavender (no color, no perfume)

    feel the therapeutic scents & healing music
    to melt away stress at home

    feels like 10mins in here with my guide

    do I look more relax after 10mins?

    When I used the Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing & Perfecting Mask 100ml RM198.50, I was disappointed it wasn't in liquid gold (haha who am I kidding right, gold cream Liquid Gold actually means the anti-aging range for Alpha-H) but surprised that as powerful as it claims to be, the product gave me an instant lustrous silky soft after wash! The all too familiar scent of Kaolin, a clay used in deep cleansing masks was a tad dry for my dry face after the silkiness passed. It's awesome for those with oily skin. Since the product warns that it uses Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, a mild tingling sensation may be experience (I did experience this on my cheeks! but the tingling sensation went away after a few mins). I don't recommend sensitive skin users to put this cream mask on for too long. Overall, this is a deep cleansing mask to be used after cleansing your face to remove dead skin cells, sebum, dirt that would leave your face feeling clean and brighter. The dryness was played down thanks to the moisturizing ingredients - Manuka Honey, Lavender and Vitamin E which helps to plumped up and hydrate the new skin cells.

    The MOR Emporium Candle Lychee Flower 184g RM131.50, as exquisite looks will never fail to make you feel your money's worth. This candle burns up to 40 hours thanks to its soy wax, burnt on a 100% cotton lead free wick. The sweet smelling lychee flower was fragrant as it is and gave out a light scent during burning. Watching the candle light flickers while listening to the relaxing beach sounds from AROMA for beautiful mind and body, music on youtube made me feel like I was on a luxury spa beach getaway.

    All you need to de-stress is 10minutes with the right music, a scented candle and a face mask that would do wonders for you in a short time. The Luxola De-stressing Kit products is available on Luxola.com/my should you be interested in them.

    My Tesco Online Shopping Experience


    open house the next day but no drinks?!

    Since moving into my new home and furnishing it slowly, it was now time to have open house to invite friends to have a sneak peek at our home. We had catering done so what we needed was beverages to fill up 20 thirsty hippos on Friday night. I was in a "lazy mode" so I google Tesco Online to check out their latest "home delivery" service. I surf around Tesco's E-Shop and my curiosity to test this new service out made me order 40 bottles of carbonated drinks for only RM100++! I was also laughing evilly away while I select my drinks while imagining other people slaving the grocery shopping for me, carrying the heavy soft drinks from Tesco to the car and right to my doorsteps. Yes we're talking about 40 big bottles of soft drinks! Thinking about carrying it in the shopping trolley to the cashier then loading it into my car and bring it back home makes me sweat. BUT RIGHT NOW I DON'T NEED TO DO IT MUAHAHHAHAHAHA!!! *evil laughter again*. All I needed to do was register an account with Tesco Online Malaysia, order my drinks, select a delivery date and walah! Tesco will be right outside my house the next day with my party drinks. I didn't even need to pay anything until they deliver my grocery to me!

    what to do when you're lazy & don't want to go shopping

    right on time 10.00am! I was still sleeping (ops)

    good service from the delivery man! didn't complain carrying my drinks (lol)

    my guests will be so happy drinking all this tonight!
