To use or not?

A friend of mine, Jackie, actually gave us a bottle of this some times ago.... It has been sitting nicely on my book rack for few weeks already, sealed. Until one day when I was spring cleaning, I (suddenly) recall about it. According to Jackie, this is something like 火山泥 (lahar in English?) he got during his recent trip to some mountain at Sabah. And can be used as mud mask, no kidding.

Now the question is, is this safe enough to be applied on our bare face? As a person who cares very much about her skin, I really don't have the confident to use... Any idea?

Hmmm, perhaps I can ask hubby to be my guinea pig, muahahahaha :D


  1. Yeah! That's an awesome idea, prepare to be guinea pig Hayley's lou gong! Muahahah!

    I think it's good enough to smoothen our hands!;D

  2. Wah, poor hubby have to be guinea pig....nanti 2moro wake up look like MJ then you know! ha ha ha!

  3. Use on the face ah...mmm..not a good idea.

  4. Hi Haley,

    it's lava from the volcano? well not use anything you have doubt especially on your lovely face.
    I think there are also pendant made from these lava ,which they claim have special properties. I have seen one of my friend wearing it.I doubt it if they really work. you will be surprise, people will try just anything and as long there are such people, the business people will capitalised on this.

  5. err...i won't dare to use it on my face though. yeah, try it on your hubby and see how...kekeekekek. please update us :P

  6. Perhaps use it on your hand? Our face is very delicate and when in doubt, don't apply on it.

    Try it on your hubby - coz men's skin is thicker, lol!

  7. Don't use your darling as the guinea pig lar, poor fellar ;) Maybe you should test it out first and apply a bit on the less sensitive parts like your foot or leg? If still doubtful, better not use at all hehe. Just keep as a souvenir :)

  8. This seems like a natural product. Natural means good ma! Go ahead and test it on your husband, kakakaka! Perhaps on your neck, hands or legs next.

  9. Alice Law, haha you also agree ho? :P

    Pete, haha, wont be that 'kua cheong' la!

    Mummy Gwen, I'm planning to use on hands/legs.. as suggested by most of you..

    Johnnie L, I'm not sure is this consider lava? My friend did not mentioned properly...
    Yes agree, as long as there're such people, there'll be business..

    Barbara, LOL.. I'll update you all, dont worry!

    Yvonne and ChloeRuoyi, yes, will try it on my hands. At least wont waste ma!

    Yan, but I'm not sure whether this suits our skin or not, though its natural..

  10. Hi Hayley, my opinion, I wouldn't. Especially as there's no instructions whatever on the bottle.

    Hey, not easy to catch you, huh! April 1st!
    I have released yours and several others comments....I had to hold back at my Immigration, Customs, ha ha.
    If released earlier the cat would be out of the bag.

    Took me 1 week to plan this out.
    Getting tough to catch you, my friends April 1st! Ha ha.
    Sure got some hilarious comments, "not to give iced coffee, but breastfeed first", ha ha ha.

  11. Hi Hayley,

    It's a wise decision to let your hubby try it first. Hahahaha! What if he turns into a handsome prince? and other girls will chase for him? Hahahah!

    I have not been to Mount KInabalu yet, but I'm surprised they sell that. It has no label. Was it approved by KKM (Ministry of Health)?'s a soil right? Aren't you afraid of germs? I hope it's clean... But look at this way: Your friend is actually being thoughtful. He or she remembers you eventhough he/she was on a mountain. Cool...huh?

    Ok Hayley, you have a nice day and good luck to your hubby.

  12. Lee, you got me at 1st... But after I shared your post with Yan and Yvonne, then only I realised it was an April Fool joke... =(

    Alice Law, LOL :P

    ChrisAu, I doubted too, but to not waste my friend's effort, I actually applied it on my hand/feet, hehe :P

    Willie, haha, I don't think that'd be the results of using the mud mask :P
    Anyway, yes, I think it's some sort of soil...

  13. I haven't tried this before even i am in Sabah. But I have heard about it and saw photos of my friends covering themselves with the larva at one of the tourist spot here. If it is good, it would be selling like hot cakes already lo..:D

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
