Random Saturday

1. Received a gift from Eve as I was the winner of her recent giveaway. Doesn't this looks like a beauty box? I was indeed happy when I opened the box, cause I love beauty products! 感谢美女伊芙为我准备的礼物,你太有心啦!这个简直就是美装盒嘛!

2. Also, received a Rilakkuma file and postcard all the way from Singapore, thanks Libby. 也谢谢Libby寄来的file和明信片!

3. My mum's neighbour's dog gave birth to 5 super cute puppies lately! 3 black and 2 brown, soooo cuuuuteee!! Aden likes them as much as I do! How we wish we can bring one back home! ;)) 妈妈家对面的狗生了5只好可爱的小狗啊!3只黑的2只褐色的,真的超级可爱啊!Aden和我一样都很喜欢小狗,多希望能够抱一只回家啊!

4. Lastly, kisses from Aden and I to you, wishing you all a great weekend ahead! This weekend we got no major entertainment (movies and KTV) here as a respect to our late Perak Sultan, so perhaps will just rest at home la! 最后祝大家周末愉快! 

Mitomo facial masks

I am a facial mask lover and these days, I try to pamper myself with a good mask session thrice a week (sometimes 4 times a week if I have the time). I can be very adventurous when it comes to the mask brands, thank God I have normal skin type which allows me to try different brands and different types of facial masks ;)
Recently, I discover a brand called Mitomo, a brand from Korea.  I contacted their FB and they let me choose 3 types of masks from their range for this review!

This is the brochure showing the different types of masks they have. What I love about their brand is that they provide mask for different purpose like moisturizing, replenish nutrition, soothing, whitening, antioxidant firming and cleansing acne.
They even have masks specially for man! All masks are without paraben and alcohol!
These are the 3 masks I chose: (l-r) 1. Royal jelly essence mask (moisturizing, healthy, vibrant skin) 2. Snail - For women essence mask (moisturizing, improve skin elasticity) 3. Coll…

Aden says.......

Hello all aunties and uncles! Mummy is a bit busy today so let me blog on behalf of her ;) I got big small eyes on Sunday :( Mummy wasn't sure what's the cause, suspect it's due to 'heatiness', cause left eye was red and a bit swollen, but the condition seems better now.  Anyway, I am down with throat infection since yesterday :( Been prescribed with antibiotic and hopefully everything will be fine soon! Though I was down with throat infection, I am still as active as usual so I hope mummy won't be so worry la! :p

And look what I've got? Ah gong bought me this bunny tricycle and though I am not very good on it yet, I am learning ;)

And I also got new collection of cars! Thank you gugu and ah pek for the new cars! I can share with my friends already! Now who wants to play? =)

A free stay at Tune hotel Taiping

As far as I can remember, I have never overnight at any hotels in my hometown Taiping. And in my personal opinion, Taiping is a small town, we need not hours to travel from one area to another like those living in bigger city like KL, and since I got a home to live at my own hometown, it feels strange and funny to actually stay at a hotel, haha xD
Anyway, since father in law got 3 free-stays coupon at the newly opened Tune hotel Taiping, hubby brought Aden and I for a new experience. We took one room, and hubby called up another 2 friends to stay at the other 2 rooms.
在我影像里,我好像没在自己的家乡住过酒店,都说是自己的家乡了嘛,都有家可归了为什么还要去住酒店?哈哈!个人觉得有点奇怪~ 不过如果是免费的就无所谓啦!:p
上礼拜这里开了间新的酒店,Tune Hotel。由于家公tender到它的冷气生意所以酒店给了3张免费住一晚固本,我们自己拿一间,另两间呢,老公就邀了两位好友一起过来。
My little big boss, we were there for one night only and was about to check out here 我的小老板~
Room design is pretty simple, we got the twin beds so we combined them together so that Aden won't fall down from bed xD 房间design很简单,空间也不大,我想经济酒店就是这样吧!
Though simpl…

New me?

(I thank everyone for your comments in my posts lately and even though I have yet to reply to them, rest assured I read all of them k?)
Doesn't this photo looks familiar?  Taken from my post in March this year. Nope, I am not re-posting the family portrait thing but I think this photo showed the worst of my hair.Uneven color and very frizzy messy curls! 还记得这张照片吗? 这是今年年头拍的亲子照,看看当时我那把好丑的头发!颜色不均匀,发尾的卷也很凌乱~
And this one taken early this month, the curls I did in June last year are becoming straighter. The only thing I could do is to apply the hair gel and blow my hair a bit to make them looks slightly nicer~ 因为时间的关系,所以暂时不去理它。虽然发尾的卷渐渐的变直了,不过如果有涂些发膏和稍微吹一下,还是过得去的。。。 说到卷发嘛。。算起来我烫卷发已经是3年了!说真的,的确有开始觉得闷了。。不过因为决定不了该换什么发型所以就一直拖下去。。。
友人都说我烫卷发比较好看,适合我的脸型而且也很有女人味。 不过都已经3年了耶!是时候换个look了呱?而且卷发需要时间和心机去打理~
那么不如做离直烫?直发不需要怎么打理!而且看起来也比较轻爽! 不过直直扁扁的头发也好像很闷咧!加上我有大饼脸,弄离直烫不就更糟? (唉,女人嘛,永远都是没事找事来烦 :p)
So, I have been perming my hair in big wavy curls for the past 3 years and this time, I intended to change my h…

Aden boy: Terrible Two!

If you follow my blog you'd remember I mentioned that Aden turned 2 about 2 weeks ago. And he is now officially in terrible two stage :(
1. Kids love to be praised and so as my son, whenever we praised him on doing something smart and clever, he'll give us the big grin smile and clap his hands *syok sendiri* (He turned that wooden reindeer side way and sit like that =_=)

2. I believe every children can master the pouting lips expression easily, and my son is no exception :p


3. Still enjoying TV time, his favorite is still Hi 5. And HK dramas on AOD, I guess that's because his daddy and mummy are chasing those dramas every night, so it has also become his habit. Our latest favorite is of course the latest Never Dance Alone (女人俱乐部). He loves dancing too!


4. Erm nothing much to say here, just to show his fat body, haha! Seriously he is so heavy now that nobody wants to carry him already...... But poor mummy is still the victim as he sticks to mummy like UHU glue =( And thank…

Movie review: Godzilla (2014)

(taken from imdb)
Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe
I think this movie needs no story line, it's like the old time Ultraman, haha! I am sure most of us remember Ultraman, right? It's all about destruction and fighting against the evil creatures. And guess who wins in the end? Erm I don't wanna create any spoiler here but I do wanna comment that though the movie title is Godzilla, but in appears only towards the ending :(
As for the actors and actresses, nothing much to comment about as most of them are new faces to me, but the main actor (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is quite handsome! ^_*

The Nutella craze

Hello, I wonder how many Nutella lovers out there? Well, I am surely one of them! I baked 2 types of cakes with Nutella last and this week and the outcome is simply yummy!
First one, Nutella swirl pound cake.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
4 large eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (8 oz / 225 g / 1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar (I used 1 cup)
One 13-ounce (350 g) jar Nutella
Steps: 1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Lightly grease and flour a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan, tapping out any excess flour.
2. Lightly beat the eggs with the vanilla.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk the 1 1/2 cups of flour with the baking powder and salt.
4. In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar at medium-high speed until fluffy.
5. Then gradually beat in the egg mixture until fully incorporated. Add the flour mixture in 3 batches, beating at low speed between additions until just incorporated. C…
