There are Times...

Yesterday was not so good for me.
I was trapped in a massive traffic for 3 hours.
For that amount of time, I could have reached my home town.

It was a fasting month and I was still in the car at around 8 pm. My mind was busy thinking about my dinner too. 
What should I have for dinner? 
By the time reach home, it was late. I don't think I had the energy to cook my own dinner.
I drove to the nearest Mc D and the queue was damn long.
My back up plan was the nearest restaurant. I parked my car in a hurry and walked in to pack some dinner. Most customers were finishing their dinner.
I was told by the waitress the kitchen is closed. I unable to order anything.

I feel like crying. I was getting so sensitive and emotional at that time. Being trapped for many hours in a massive traffic jam really rot down my mental. Of course, starving for one whole day added to my breakdown.

I drove back home with nothing. It was almost 9 pm. I don't get a single drop of water to my dry throat. So upset!

I was contemplating within myself. Should I eat? Or shouldn't? I have this rule within myself not to eat anything above 8 pm. Fool!

In the end, I fried 2 eggs for dinner. That was so blessed of me.
After quick dinner and shower, I sat down on my bed thinking hard about the life I chose. So...this is how its going to be too? No one will wait for me at home ? No cat too ? Ewww...can't stand the smell of cat ! Only the lizard who eat all the mosquitoes at home ? They are not waiting for me at all. It is better for me not to see them around. I hate lizard too. The dropping are massive and need to be cleaned all the time.

Oh! That is why God created Adam and Eve. At least we human can support each other. If I have someone waiting for me at home.... I can just order the food through phone on the way back. I thought , my life is fine without someone. Ironically ,this is the only time I think about the needs of partner in life. lol.. Somebody who can wait for me with home cook food.

If I think in another way, I am still blessed for being able to get 2 fried eggs for dinner and unlimited water supply. Imagine for those who at war or starvation due to poor? I feel thankful for God to give me this lesson in life. I feel thankful to God for at least letting me have eggs for dinner. I repent for a moment.

I also feel very sorry to the person who involve in massive accident last night. I hope no casualties involved. Well, by the way at the accident site...unlikely no casualty. The small white Viva was trapped under a big trailer. My heart goes to his or her family. I hope he or she recover well. Or I pray for her or his soul R.I.P.

I was almost gotten sandwich by one long trailer earlier too. That driver really an 'asshole'! Opps!!!! I am not sorry for being vulgar at all. I think that driver deserve more vulgar word from me though! He almost squash one motorcyclist behind me too. I was so terrible jam and this heavy don't know how many tonnes long trailer swaying here and there through the slow moving traffic even to the emergency lane. Bad driver!

There are times we feel unlucky...take a moment and think how unlucky are you if things can be amended are consider bless. Some people has the worst luck like death and fatal injuries which unable to be amended at all.

For those who are driving back to home town , please drive carefully. Don't follow your desire to be F1 driver on the highway and cause fatal accident to others. If you want to die...just die alone. Seriously, don't drag others with you! No 'U Turn'!

Selamat Hari Raya!

Drama Queen mode On...

Don't Complicate Your Skincare Routine

Friday, May 18, 2018 13 Comments
I am not a big fan of overdoing my facial skin with some tools. I know serums and essences is highly important. Nowadays , we are spoil with product choices sometime using too many product confuse our skin. I myself super confuse on what goes first. lol.

Simplicity in skincare steps is most important for me since my 'me' time is so limited. I prefer the basic skincare which stick to 3 simple steps. I will add on whenever I have time to it. No big deal!
Life is all about simplicity! Adjust according to your needs as long as don't deviate from the basic rules. I will add serums and essences when time permitted. So don't bash me! I am not against any serum, essences and mask.  I use those when time allow me to. isk isk isk...
For daily routine, I normally go for just 3 steps routine.

To achieve the 'just' 3 steps routine, what I need is good 3 basic things :

* Good facial cleanser
* Awesome toner
* Suitable moisturizing cream

I can easily find good facial cleanser and toner but always having problem for moisturizing cream. Its either make my skin oily or dry. Even worst if you get something that give your after effects like not easily absorb to skin and oily skin after wake up in the morning. Hate that totally!

I bought some moisturizing skin which gave me cooling effect and it suppose to moisturize dry skin. This famous brand really doesn't suit my skin. I always end up with oily face in the morning. Hurl!

Some product even takes time to absorb into skin which leave your skin soaking wet or sticky and make it difficult to get ready in the morning.
Imagine you are rushing to be part of those tremendous traffic jam and you can't miss the seconds timing just to wait for your moisturiser to fully absorb before applying the BB or CC Cream or foundation on your face?

Kind of bad morning ...if this happen to me. I read some even use hair dryer to dry up the moisturiser. WTH! The heat from hair dryer is bad for skin. Totally not recommended this kind of beauty hack.

You will end up look like old hag skin before you aged.

Last year , I was invited to Taiwan Beauty Expo and was given this famous PSK brand from Taiwan. I was not so keen to try this to my skin because their famous pearl cream I tried many years ago didn't work well. I admitted anything whitening effect will make my skin awful! Why? I have sort of brown skin color not ivory or fair. I look like wearing out mask with that cream.

Anyway, I brave myself to try out PSK Skin Purifier last 2 weeks. WTH! I should have try this earlier. 

PSK Skin Purifier Pore Clarifying Balance Cream, 30ml

How do I describe PSK Skin Purifier Pore Clarifying Balance Cream?

The texture is very light and glide and absorb on skin really well. When it first touching my skin, I can feel the cooling sensation and soothing which really awesome for humid weather. Thank God! this one not sticky on my skin.
I even use this at night and 'DAEBAK' this doesn't make my skin oily in the morning. It has enhance oil control effect. This is like a dream come true! 

Product box written this is suitable for all skin type and good for Asian Skin. Oh Yeayyy!!!! I am loving it! Highly recommended for those who are looking out for good moisturizer. Then again...this is all depends on one skin type. It may suit me well but not really sure if this is for you.

Ingredients listed on the box :

* SK- influx
* Pentavitin
* Alantoin
* Niacinamide
* Vitamin B3

Skin Care / Base Whitedolls Lotion Essence, 30ml

Together in the PSK bag , I have Skincare / Base White dolls Lotion Essence. I was really skeptical with this one. Really! When first read the product name...WHAT? White Dolls? Am I going to look like some 'Geisha' with this? Dare not try on my face.

First , people who read this blog post will be falling out chair laughing at my 'Geisha' face dolling up. Thats not going to happen folks!

Second, I don't know to which step of skincare routine for me to use this product. Seriously, in the dark! The description on the box is totally freaking my old eye sight out. Hurl! that blur mehhhh...can't you darken that font for me??? Losing out my temper with this one.

I manage to snap good photo of the description . Finally, I can try this.

How to use PSK Skin Care / Base Whitedolls Lotion Essence ?

From the box written, apply the entire face and neck area after toner.
Enriched with pearl extract  which gives you overall effect of moisturising and brightening.
It can be use as last step skin care before make up.

I tried this after toner and this has that pearl extract brightening effect. In fact don't need anymore CC cream after apply this one. Yeay!!! simplicity is the best. In photo I show you the result apply on my face and also one of my hand. My left hand without PSK Whitedolls lotion essence. See the different? hand always darker tone if compare to my facial color. WTH! Color blocking.... lol.
Hurl! amaze on how it blend well to my dark color tone on my hand. As for the texture, I find it perfect since it glide easily and non sticky. The effect is natural fair on my skin. You see the photo. Look like I need to apply this on my hand too to make it even skin tone.

Phewww!!! luckily I don't look like 'Geisha Doll'. In fact I am far from that!

If you never heard about this brand before and interested to check out PSK Skin Purifier range and PSK Skin Care / Base Whitedolls lotion Essence please visit their website I have tried their Deep Sea Extract Range before and they are simply awesome for my skin. In Malaysia you can easily buy PSK skincare and cosmetics product  from Lazada and Hermo.

Trust me, I have known this Taiwan brand since many years. They are well known there too. By the way the owner is fellow Malaysian.

Aiyooo! Rajan

Thursday, May 03, 2018 2 Comments
Just use your imagination to visualize when you read this post. No photo taken. This is not a long post too. 

There is this one big mirror in front of lift  at my apartment lobby area. Its really hard to miss the mirror because the first visual when the lift door open is your own reflection from that mirror.

The story is about this kid , who I have met without failed for almost 3 days consecutively at different time. I reached home at odd hours depend on traffic. No matter how , I met the kid again on my third night. He has this weird habit whenever he gets down from the lift.

I think he is around 4 years old.

My usual routine from work. Parked my car then walk to the lift lobby and press the button up to my apartment. 
Lift door open and as good human I waited for the other people to go out . 

Here comes.... this family with one boy. They went out from the lift. The parent walk away to the car park but this kid just pose froze in front of the mirror like 5 seconds or maybe longer. Talking about pose.... he knee down like the propose kind of style then I saw his one hand with 'V' sign below his chin. He just stare at the mirror. To make thing worst he doesn't walk far from the lift door. Basically , blocking people entrance to enter the lift. 

1st day he did that his Mother just call him out and he still froze there until I said 'Excuse Me Boy'. He walked to his parent.

2nd day , coincidentally , I met him again. I think parent brought him for dinner. Yes! same pose. I just laugh at him and the Mother was like ....???? What happened to my kid look??? Dragged him away while saying... Aiyoo!!! Rajan!!! . I understood her expression but can't help it just giggled away.

Tonight was my 3rd day, met him.
Same pose weiiiiiii!!!! WTH! with with this kid?
Me was again??? Still same pose?
I still feeling amuse with his way of admiring himself but I guess the Mother was embarrassed. 🤗

The Mother : Rajan!!! (call while walking away to her car)

The boy still admiring himself with exact same proposing pose. He not even look at his mother. His mother who notice her boy ignoring her.

The Mother : Aiyooo!!! Rajan Baby! Enough! The mirror will break see your handsome face! 
She was laughing hard with her husband while saying that.

Me ?? 🤣Muahahahaha... can't help it. Burst out laughing too. I was controlling for many nights for this kid weird act.

Me : Aiyooo....Rajan! move away I need to take that lift. Go..go.. Tomorrow do different pose can ar? 😏

He move away with cheeky smile face.

The Mother : Sorry ya!!!

She was waving apologetically for her son weird behavior. I just laugh at her.

I heard the mother was grumbling to him. 

The Mother : Aiyooo...this Rajan Baby!!!cannot see mirror la!  
The Father : Problem ar this Rajan!

Both parent was laughing too when said that. 

Aiyoooo!!!!! this Rajan ar. I think he has that Narcissm Syndrome 😎 Lol 🤣😂

I posted this out in my blog because I really feel amuse with this kid. He did exactly same pose as soon as he get out from lift. 3 days consecutively. Imagine what kind of fate I have with this kiddo???

Who have kid here? What is your kid most weird behavior? The one you can't 'brain' why they did that? 🤔

Wasted My Money With Lazada Beauty Box

Monday, April 30, 2018 12 Comments
Recently , Lazada was on Birthday sales. Some of the items on good bargain to my eyes ,was Beauty Box. Among all Beauty Box listed , I chose one from my favorite skincare Brand, Mamonde

It listed as ' Mamonde Birthday Surprise Box Skin-Care' at RM99
The listing promised the contents of the box will be at least 7 items worth RM200. 

It suppose to be a good surprise and I was so excited to wait for the box to reach me. The delivery rather super express since it took less than 4 days to reach me. 

When I opened the box...I was really SURPRISE
7 items as promised. Yeayyyy!!!!!
But...its all crapssss....nothing I want!
Did it really worth RM200 as promised?
Well...I checked price online...
* Mask cost RM6
* Sleeping mask RM58.25 (after disc)
* Trial kit listed as RM99.11 after discount but they include in Hydro Cream 50ml. Mine received with just 15ml cream
* That small 15 ml sleeping mask ..not sure how much it cost?
If calculated the price well the total is RM163.36. So it means that 15 ml mask cost me RM36.64???
Hurl!!!!! Slap my face to accept the reality of Surprise Box!
Served me right! I never paid that much money for just a bunch of sample or travel kits. I would rather spend that money for full sized items.
I should have just use my money to buy the item I want from the online shop itself. Stupid me!

I learned my lesson on online shopping deal. I paid RM99 for that lesson. I remember this forever.
isk isk isk... I feel like just got con big time from Lazada Birthday Beauty Box sales.

Update : Received my refund! Horrayyyy!!!!! The refund process is simple if you are still within the mentioned range.

3 Days / 2 Nights At Resorts World Sentosa

Friday, April 27, 2018 20 Comments
Seriously , my new job really hectic until the opening day on Dec this year. Just wait for my shout out soon ya!

I barely find time to update my blog. By the time reached home at night...all I see is my bed. Weekend will be busy 'chingguing' or old baby sitting. But Old Baby has gone back this weekend. Hopefully they are doing well on their own at home town. They miss home dearly for many months live in KL. I won't say my Dad fully recover but can sense his stubborn attitude to prove he can do it. This can be bad but also good too. Good..because he can stay strong to hold on but the bad is..we are all far away if anything happen to him. isk isk isk...May God Bless him!

Back to my trip end last March, I was so happy to come across MasterCard promo with Resorts World Sentosa. I paid around SGD 701 and received good deal. I was really glad to go for some trips early this year because I will not be able to do make any trip plan until next year due to my work. I know ...I know...sounds pathetic...but hey! work first. Travel happily later!!!

What I get from MasterCard Resorts World Sentosa promotion?

* 2 Nights Room stay for 2 person (I chose Hotel Michael. Never regret it and it was a good choice. Super happy with the spacious room we had)
* 2 person USS One-Day Ticket for adult
* 2 person Typhoon Theater One-Day Ticket
* 2 person The Maritime Experiential Museum Ticket
* 2 person Sea Aquarium One - Day Ticket
* 2 person Adventure Cove Water park One-Day Ticket

We can choose the date when  book the package. Then print out the e ticket and present it on the date you choose at the entrance. Super easy!

My last Sister and I took morning flight around 7:30am. We took Grab Car from Changi to Sentosa. Since we have Hotel voucher so the Grab Car can enter to hotel area. It was too early to check in to Hotel. I did the registration before hand to speed up the process later on. Both of us then kept our luggage at concierge and head to our first destination. Adventure Water Cove!

Adventure Water Cove

We ate our sandwiches before enter the park. They checked our bag at entrance. No food..duh!!!

We rented one locker to keep our things after change to swimsuit. We have a great fun lazying around park while sitting on the tube. That was the only ride suited me. (**face palm..head down**) The rest was too extreme impact for my knee and waist. But my last sis has a great fun alone taking all those ride. She told me it would have been fun if I can accompany her. Sorry sister! This big sister didn't want to jeopardize her body at this age. I will definitely enjoy all those rides if I am 15 years younger than now. Who asked you born so late ?? 

We both really wanted to try Rainbow Reef. But none of us is a good swimmer. I am a beginner and my last sis far from beginner. She told me maybe we can since they provide life jacket. Just float around only. Haiyooo!!! both us have a peep onto this Rainbow Reef place. Both was like...Thank God! we didn't go for it. 

'Look at that lady!!! she was struggling!'
'Whoaaaa!!! look at that man was panting hard dragging his kid!'
'Thank God'
'huhuhuh..this look so tiring!'

I can tell you this...Rainbow reef really like snorkeling in deep sea. Really deeepppp!!!! We saw this place from outside and a beginner will be struggling hard in there. It was a long circle too. I don't think will have fun watching rainbow fish. I will be busy finding place to catch my breathe. Which you hardly have place for that! So think before you commit! I still can see the rainbow fish from outside though!  

We checked into our room in the afternoon while waiting for my Third Sister to reach from KL. Her flight delayed to almost evening time. We have a bit hiccups to redeem my Third Sister's USS ticket from the kiosk . She bought it from Voyagin. Both my Last Sister and I tried to print the ticket from the kiosk nearby but the machine shows the ticket was redeemed but nothing printed out. Damn!!! Tried to call the hotline is like nobody answer us. We checked with USS people and they told us to come over at 9am the next day. But at the end manage to get it on the ticket's day itself. It took long time to get the ticket from Guest Service Counter. Everybody was very nervous!

Every attraction is like around the hotel we stayed. We can even see the USS Cyclone ride from our window. Everything is walking distance. We have a good time shopping around and is like chocolate  and goodies heaven.

Many weird and cute candies and gummies too.

Last sis was so crazy over this 'Bean Boozled' and having fun fooling around with disgusting flavored bean. You read for yourself the flavor on the photo. I was lucky not to taste any of those. But my other Sisters said the taste was really disgusting! lol...

Universal Studio Singapore

This is my second time in USS. My first visit was during weekend and the crowd was like don't even want to imagine. Every ride was like hours and hours of standing in line. But this time we went during weekday. It was super easy. Some famous ride only make us wait like 30 minutes. The shortest time was like 5 minutes ride. 

Everything was smooth and very enjoying except for heavy rain. But...we have done all the rides by then. Horayyyy!!!

Did I ride on Roller Coaster? Hurl!!!! still wanna ask? I am 'Queen' when it come to Roller Coaster! hehehe...Queen of Huarrrrgghhhhhhh!!!! Screaming on top of my lung! I went there after my last day at work. The thoughts of me being a jobless and nothing certain in life...made me like that! Release the stress,yo! Who cares??? Everybody was busy screaming too!

I felt like repeat all the rides but by that time most ride becoming like 50 minutes to 60 minutes waiting time. I think better for me to enjoy the street performance and shop around. I was rich here! Brought some cash but don't feel like buying anything.

It was a Troll Mania kind of vibes at USS . I went there as a 'Minion' ...Yup! this same  'Minion' who went to USJ end of last year. The vibes here in USS still unable to compete with USJ. Over there the staff and even the visitor is like born with  'Happy Positive' programmed in their mind. 

I bought that Spring Season Starbuck tumbler after couldn't find anything to my liking. Bye ..Bye ..USS. I wish to visit USJ again! WTH..Maybe I should try Disneyland next time?

I heard USS is going to have this Halloween Horror night soon...based on my USJ experience running until my knee cap almost fall off with Zombies outbreak....huwarrggghhhh!!!! IMA..avoid this at all cause.
Love the Sunrise from our Room Window. See ? USS just behind our Hotel. So convenient!

This was during our last day breakfast. We tried this place call Slappy Cakes. Both my sisters having fun frying their own pancakes with assorted shapes.

This lazy bum Big Sister happily feeling rich ordered poached eggs on English Muffin Toast and fluffy soft grilled potatoes. Delicious!

While waiting for Typhoon Theatre , The Maritime Experiential Museum Ticket and Sea Aquarium to open at 10:00am. I tried this freshly squeezed orange juice vending machine. It was fun to watch the machine squeeze juice from navel orange in front of you. I drank delicious orange juice for SGD3.

Typhoon Theater and The Maritime Experiential Museum

We went for typhoon theater and the maritime experiential museum first. That was a mistake! We should have visit the Sea Aquarium first. Anyway, we still enjoy our last moment at Resorts World Sentosa . I learn a lot about history here in the Museum and enjoy the Typhoon Theater.

Sea Aquarium

Its almost to the level of Kaiyukan at Osaka. I love being in this Aquarium and wish could spend more time here. I enjoy to watch all sorts o f fishes and sea creature swimming around .So therapeutic and mind healing.  However, since we visited almost noon, many crowds here. I hate it!

My third sister checked out for us since she came to Singapore just for USS. (hurl!!!!) We took our luggage and head to airport for our flight back. 
It was a short trip but very enjoyable one!

All Muslim! don't worry much. Many Halal food around Festive Walk here at Resorts World Sentosa. We even had good meal inside the USS. Just prepare to pay the price tag !

6 Reason Why Liquorice is Good For Skin

Sunday, April 15, 2018 21 Comments
Have you heard about Liquorice before? I only know liquorice is use in traditional Chinese Medicine. Some even add it to tea or tobacco. I do not know that this herbs is good for skin. I just found liquorice has been used for almost 4,000 years ago for skin and health benefit after I found this skincare range call Botanics which I bought it from one of the pharmacies in Bangkok.

For those who don't know how Liquorice look like can just 'google' the image. It kind of beautiful plant with some flowers. The plant is a legume type and very much like bean. The health benefit from this plant lies within the plant's root.

I remember drink liquorice remedies once to treat my stomach ulcers and congestion. Sometimes I take liquorice candy to treat my sore throat too.

As for skin benefit, I just found out liquorice is good to treat hyper-pigmentation. I thought only rose hips oil can treat this. 

I was interested with Botanics Skincare range even its very expensive because it says can fade out my dark spot.

 I bought 2 products from Botanics Whitening with Liquorice Series.

* Nature Inspired Botanics Whitening with Liquorice Concentrated Dark Spot Gel, 50ml

* Nature Inspired Botanics Whitening with Liquorice Refreshing Eye Gel, 15ml

 Botanics Whitening Concentrated Dark Spot Gel claimed :

* Reduces the appearance of Dark Spots 
* Reduce uneven skin tones
* Achieve luminous healthy looking complexion

My experience using Botanics Whitening Concentrated Dark Spot Gel :

I apply this gel concentrate after cleansing and toning steps every evening. I can't use this in the morning too as instruct in the box. Why? I don't really feel comfortable because the texture of this product make my skin really sticky like apply glue on my skin. Due to this I always reluctant to apply this gel. So...I kind of apply this inconsistently onto my skin. I have been using this for almost 1 month now. I could see it helps to fade some dark color from my dark spots. Imagine if I have that faith to apply this regularly??? I am pretty sure it work wonders on my skin. But I still find this too sticky and itchy sometimes. So far so good. Not negative reactions or whatsoever!

Botanics Whitening Refreshing Eye Gel claimed :

* plumps the appearance of the lines and firm up the eye contour
* reviving tired eyes and reducing eye puffiness
* reduce dark circles

My experience Botanics Whitening Refreshing Eye Gel :

I kind of love the texture of this eye gel. It absorb very quickly by just dabbing if slowly under eyes. I could say it works on reduce puffiness but not yet for dark circle. I think long way to go for me on that area. I would give this 5 stars and become among my fav eye gel so far.

Liquorice definately gives benefit to skin and why I just know this now. 🤗

Check out what other benefit liquorice can do for your skin.

6 Reason Why Liquorice is Good for Skin :

1. Skin Brightening

Hyper-pigmentation is always a problem for me. For those who don't know what is hyper -pigmentation, this is where some patches of your skin become darker than the rest of skin around it due to extra melanin deposits on those spots. It look ugly you know. I find its so hard to cover it even with concealer. Apparently , liquorice can restore the skin to a lighter color if apply daily on the darkened area.

2. Fights Wrinkle

I am not sure about others. As for me wrinkle around my eye area really make me really ugly. Liquorice is full of antioxidants which will helps block free radicals and keep skin from aging prematurely.

3. Fade Out Scars

I didn't try this on my scar yet because I am afraid it will finish even before I treat my hyper-pigmentation. I haven't try to find where to buy this in Malaysia. I Apparently , Liquorice helps to speed up the process by blocking the melanin production. It won't heal the scars totally but it can fade the color though.

4. Hide Sun Damage

Dark spots and age spot are both caused by the Sun. See? Sun is not all good and not all bad. Totally like love and hate collides. Haihhhh...If you apply liquorice it can help bring your skin to a smooth,lighter tone. This because it has this glabridin that stops the skin from darkening after sun exposure.It also contains UV blocking enzymes that help protect skin damage.

5. Firm and Tighten Skin

Not sure whether the skincare range mentioned has enough liquorice for this. But I read liquorice supposedly can keep skin feeling soft because it helps elastin and collagen for skin. It also contains amino acids which will help moisturize and re hydrate the skin.

6.Heal Wounds and Skin Infections

It helps to keep swelling and redness to a minimum and works by reducing the amount of bacteria on skin and allowing faster skin repairing.

This is my first time using liquorice for skincare.I usually treat my sore throat with it. I will buy more of this product range if I happen to find this here in Malaysia. This is worth to try out!

Before receive the invitation, I was so nervous. Am I too old to get invitation? Am I so 'old school' not 'hot babe' like other butterflies. Am I being bad butterfly all these years? Huwaaaaaargggg! You wanna invite me or not??? Tell me la.... so I can get over this. So stressful waiting for invitation!!!!!

The Butterfly Unicorn Party: You're Invited!

The Unicorn Party

Party Date: 1st April (Sunday)

Time: 3pm - 5pm

Dress code: Magical Unicorn (makeup + fashion+horn). Color theme (follow poster colors).

*Space is limited so pls do not let your fashion takeover the space (wearing big costumes).

3 Best-Dressed Unicorn Prizes: Trollbeads Gift worth RM508 each

After received the invitation...yahooooo!!! I am invited. Then...oh no..what should I wear. Damn! need a horn some more. Gosh! what to wear? Pastel sweet color like unicorn? No black??? Uwaaaaa!!! I am going to look like 'overweight' unicorn. How am I going to hide my big spare tire with sweet pastel colors? Why they don't allow female black beauty to Unicorn party? This is discrimination? Oh! about make up. That blend blend thing to your eyelid. With my make up skill??? Gosh! this is hopeless. I can see the clown in the making. Argghhhh!!! stress!!! why invite me? why? Tell me la....

Damn! I really have this kind of mixed feeling...hahahaha...The drama continue weiiiii...never stop here. Read on even if your eyelid is pulling down now.

From the day of the invitation email reached me. My eyes is looking out for unicorn.

I was at Universal Studio Singapore and my eyes try to shop for unicorn headband. All I found is this unicorn plush. Mmmmmm...I can't be wearing this on my head right? All they have is Trollmania there at USS. My sis keep telling me to buy those hair pin with rainbow troll's hair. Troll is not a unicorn la! I can't jeopardize my good reputation as butterfly. muahahaha (thick face mode again)

Back to Malaysia, found my unicorn headband and also unicorn earings. Yeayyy!!! settled one worry. Guess what? The sales girl at the shop asked me this when I pick this...

Sales Girl : Is this for your daughter?


Me (shyly) : For me... I was invited to unicorn party.

Sales Girl : Owhhh!! Sorry...


I watch Unicorn Make Up tutorial many times at youtube. Hopefully can bring out that hidden talent in me. WTH! is obvious nothing hidden in me. Everything is crystal clear! WTH!

Practice to paint my nail but didn't do that to the last minute. Yeahhh!!! why I don't visit nail parlor? I hate to wear any nail polish. I practice my rainbow color unicorn make up many times. This is the best photo I could show the world. I won't show off my dirty secret up here. For goodness sake I need to protect myself for any future humiliation.

I even try to decorate my unicorn horn with flowers. Failed big time! I end up stick my fingers with super glue because I bought the wrong one! Huhuhuh...

The effort is there but the results???? Haihhh!!! forget it! Whatever!!!! I am just going to be myself. Along the process of preparation ...I forgot about dress. Only remember that important part the day before. WTH!!! I just digged out to whatever pastel to my eyes from my 'humble' no 'fashion sense' wardrobe. The result??? Read further people...

My super long winded intro never reach to the Magical Party experience yet??? On the way baybeh.. finally here...nervous and excited at the same time. It fall on April fool day and I successfully walk into the party like a fool. hahaha ...not that bad yo! I just put my 'thick face' make up on. Open my mind and go with the Party Flow and have fun observing every sorts of human character. Everybody happy???? I am happy too. hahahaha

I walked in before 3pm. Some early butterflies was already there with unicorn headband on their head. Everybody look their best and beautiful. Some even came in with Unicorn pajamas and Unicorn Costume. I would say everybody has their own way of interpretation on the theme for the day. Creative thoughts people! Obviously with my lack of self esteem made me feeling a bit intimidated with all those creative young soul! WTH!

Registered my name and was given cutie Unicorn goodies bag and a 'Unicorn Loyalty Card' which entitled this Unicorina to redeem some gift and activities like photobooth, adopt a Unicorn, Flower Bouquet and Balloon counter.

After everybody settled down, The Party was officiated by Mamasan aka Miss Tammy Lim, The President of Butterfly Project Malaysia with official host for the day Dee Leonard. Both wearing tacky Unicorn Theme outfit and headband. I have fun listening to their speech with all those speechless and funny comments. I added too many wrinkles around my face due to their hilarious act. WTH! They made me laughing too much!

I have fun redeemed my Butterfly Loyalty card too. Thank you to all sponsors for the day. Unicorina have fun on the April Fool Day.

1. Photo Booth

My first activity for the day was to act the best at Photo Booth. GNG Studiobooth totally brings out the party to live. All Butterflies has a great fun acting the most 'kawaii' pose with ready 'props' prepared by GNG team and also trying out their Boomerang photobox.

Well....there you go...this is the result of me looking the best from my humble no fashion sense wardrobe. I look like 5 months pregnant unicorina. Aihhh!!! Even the best technology can't make me any slimmer with that over-sized XXL blouse! lol...I am not this fat in real you know...(isk isk isk nobody can beat my in-denial thinking.. kekeke)

2. Adopt a Unicorn

When Mamasan announced there is a Unicorn up for adoption...this Unicorina keep imagine a plush toys unicorn. Never imagine its going to be this adorable cutie pie unicorn mug. Serious!!! I am loving this one and only unicorn mug in my possession. Mamasan so creative to even think of this. This wouldn't make possible with 50gram . They have the most creative gifting ideas for any occasions. 50gram is the first online florist shop that offers complimentary video message on behalf of you. Wow! Talk about being the leader in gifting industry.

The best of all they even provided a certificate to prove our adoption.
Check out my instagram post HERE where I posted the certificate with the name of my Unicorn Baby. All butterflies require to come out with the name for their new Unicorn. just wrote down whatever name came to my head. The outcome was....check my insta. pssttt! I heard this price RM39.90 per mug. Awesome gift for lovely people.

3. Auto-Inflate, Colouring Balloon

I can tell you this over and over again art skills is totally sucks! Even my 8 years old niece can do better than this. I was over at brrrloon counter and was given this beautiful unicorn balloon. No pain no gain. In order to claim my balloon, I need to do some coloring activities. huhuhuh... colouring is good for mind healing. I tried my best.  After my mind healing process, I have a chance to do the mind releasing moment too. Just shake this balloon for 60 seconds then hit it with my fist as hard possible.... own unicorn balloon inflate nicely. Check out my boomerang post HERE.... . my selfie time with my unicorn balloon. Isn't this fun and magical activities? Totally love this mind blowing moment. Thank you Brrrloon for also becoming our party's official decorator! All the balloon totally adding to the magic! If you are looking for balloons supplies. Don't look any further. check out their awesome list of party supplies. 

4. Mini Flower Bouquet I admitted before in previous post.. I am now a sucker to beautiful flowers. I was very excited to head over to flowers counter opened by Everyday Flowers at our Unicorn Party. I picked 2 stalk of flowers and handed out to Everyday Flower team. Few minutes later....

My own mini bouquet. I love it so much! They are beautiful to my eyes. Awesome job to Everyday Flowers. 

I redeemed all in Unicorn Loyalty Card. Thank you so much to all sponsors! Finally have time to enjoy my meal and drink prepared by our venue of the day Wondermilk.
