MY OWN BRAISED EGG...NYUM NYUM

Thursday, April 30, 2015 2 Comments
Last 2 weeks I am so craving for herbal tea egg.
I used to like the one from purple cane but nowadays the smells is so nice but the taste don't have that kick!! 
I always have that 'thick' palate. 

Long time ago , I boiled one but it taste bitter because end up put to much of 'angelica' powder.
My version have that 'angelica' powder, red dates, onion, and goji berries in it. Add in thick soy sauce and boil.

This time ,my braised egg turn out so well and deserve a round applause!!!

Clap your hand everybody!!!!

hihihihihih...so 'perasan' huh?

The only different this outlet, the one I was invited to review is at Sunway Mentari Plaza which more like a Vegetarian Chinese Restaurant and totally family style restaurant.So the menu is slightly comprehensive and elaborate suit to family meal then the one at One Utama.

HEAL MY PANDA EYE WITH L'OREAL YOUTH CODE

Friday, April 24, 2015 3 Comments
Last month I bought L'OREAL Paris Youth Code Rejuvenating Eye Essence with ambitious thought to lighten up my 'dark circle' and improve my 'eye bag' which is coming to look like that creature from Lord of The Rings...well..Gollum!



I paid this essence for more than RM70 after reading the box said inspired by 10 years of skin gene research. It says "break the code to younger looking eyes" and " instant efficacy dramatic results".


That box has this written on it :

* Smooth Fine Lines around Eye Contour
* Lighten Dark Circles
* Reduce Eyelid Puffiness
* Firm Eye Contour
* Hydrate Eye Contour

One drop
 * Fine line are smoothed out.
* Eye contour is more luminous.
* Skin moisturised

One Week :

* Dark Circles & eye bags are visibly reduced
* Eye features look rested

One Month :

* Eye contours look younger



Do you think this thing works on IMA?

Eye bag??? Did you see that double under eye???
Dark Circle???? That circle still there and IMA have to tap more coverage for it.
Fine lines??? Gosh!!! IMA dare not laugh too much...its too obvious ugly to show !

Only thing I love about this L'OREAL YouthCode Rejuvenating Essence is IMA's eyes feel healthy and moist.

The Power of Copywriting gotten me to buy this....**face palm**

EVENT REVIEW: BEAUTY SECRET EYE SECRET WITH HORIEN

Monday, April 20, 2015 6 Comments




I was invited to grand launching of Malaysian based Horien Optic (M) Sdn Bhd for soft lens and lens care product called Eye Secret on 11th April 2015, Saturday. The product mainly manufactured by a certified and renowned manufacturer in Taiwan called Yung Sheng Optical Co. Ltd.

There are many good and quality products under Horien Eye Secret brand, such  Color Lens , Eye Wears and Solutions.


It was an exciting grand launching at One Utama, Oval Court attended by many VVIPs, Media and Bloggers. The event also to introduce to their newly signed brand ambassador, Yumi Wong. Gorgeous , Yumi Wong is a Malaysian who is also renowned Artist in Taiwan as an Actress.


Yes! Cindyrina was there signed like a Superstar but don't pose or act like one. Oh! how I wish I have that drop dead gorgeous body like hers. Damn! she's hot! Oh! thats not Yumi. IMA don't know her. IMA saw she signed and then all those photographer swamped to shoot her photo. 

***Face palm*** nobody even notice or even know....IMA ever signed there! Nobody care to even take IMA's photo. No bees no crickets!!! WTH!!!!

Here goes the so called not so gorgeous not drop and still alive human like , IMA! WTH!


Hihihihihih.....not so gorgeous person still get some door gifts from Horien Eye Secret. Thank you.


In less than a week, Horien Eye Secret sent me another gift of appreciation. WTH! Thank you!

You never regret to get your hands on this Contact Lens.IMA is a contact lenses user for more than 20 years now. IMA stick for only one particular brand because it was so 'bloody difficult' to find the comfortable one in the market.

IMA personally tried their Eye Secret Daily Color Lenses last Sunday for another event. Seriously I was wearing it like more than 12 hours. It was comfortable, moisture aka not dry feel. It feels like not wearing any lenses at all. So natural feel. Another plus point,after wearing it for long hours....the lens was easily removed from eyes.So hook with Horien Eye Secret now. Definitely ditching my existing and shift my eye wear brand totally to Horien Eye Secret.

look like that cat from shrek or not???? kekekeke... first time ever wear this kind of lenses.

If you wish to get your own Horien Eye Secret.....you can too!

You can fill up your details at their website for some samples and also try your luck to win one year supply of contact lens by joining contest which is still ongoing. Wanna know where to get Horien Eye Secret??? Visit ...

When I want to travel...

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 5 Comments
Lately, many people asked me on my next traveling trip.
Good question?
Sorry! I have no answer for this too.
To me traveling abroad is not a habit or a hobby that I have privilege to do it whenever I like.

I would rather do it based on my economy level and affordability.

I notice these days, many younger generation tend to travel just because other friends are traveling and they want to be in trend. Many of them are traveling at deficit.

Don't live your life just because you need to be in that group. Others can fly you wanna fly too!

But hey....you only fly when you have surplus in your bank accounts not for the sake of this is in trend. The after effect may kill you softly!

Seriously, going for a vacation using credit cards and come back from trip cracking your head or starving yourself to pay off the bill in installment is not the way to enjoy your vacation or so called "break"!


Well this is applicable to those students who goes places with student loan or allowances by parent unless you really born with 'silver spoon' , then this will be you privilege.If you are not....then forget about spending future money!
 
Its just a temporary happiness. Traveling abroad and experience new things and learn other cultures are suppose to give you good and sweet memory to last forever!

Your choice! You can enjoy your life while still young and struggling later or you choose to do the opposite. 

If you just started working like 2 - 3 years , all you need to do is to focus in work and build up your career. You can do that traveling later. If your job requires traveling, then it become sweet advantage for you!


I have been working my ass off for more than 18 years before I see myself going places. Things are sort of ease for me right now. I will travel when I feel I want to! Not because I have to.

I don't mind people call me 'stingy' as long I know I live off with my own affordability.

At least  I have a 'peace of mind'.

Dance and be FREE

Thursday, April 09, 2015 2 Comments



Just wanna share on how I normally release my stress or when I feel totally down or lost.
I am a human after all. I unable to stay positive all the time since I was born with full of emotion and feeling. Goodness sake...I verified with my Mum. I did cried when I was born. Duh!!!
Positive born with emotion and feeling.

For me, I will dance to my favorite music when I am feeling lost. Dancing can free my mind.

Am I a good dancer???
Ohhhooooo!!!!!
Are you kidding me?

You don't need to be a dancer or learn dancing! Just to dance.....
Pick you favourite song and just move your body .
Free your mind and let it drown to the song.
And then????
Let you body move it..move it..(read this like that madagascar cartoon song..kakaka)

I may be not a good dancer but I could say ...I do have some flexibility to move along with the song.


That video is my favorite song to do lyrical dance when I am feeling so down and lost. isk isk isk..
The rhythm and the song is so meaningful too.
So love Park Jun Min unique deep voice.
I am his big fan ever since listen to his single  'Do You Know' and 'Not Alone'.
This is my 'medicine' for more than 3 years now after 'Beyond'.WTH! *** hand cover my face*** 

Don't know what is lyrical dance???

Lyrical dance is a mixture of ballet, jazz, contemporary and modern dance. This dance is full with emotion, freedom and expressive in movement.

Don't you think this is totally my style????

Have a good weekend all!!!!
 
 

WHICH WAY TO TURN ?

Thursday, April 09, 2015 3 Comments
This treadmill was with me since 3 years ago.
I bought it because I want to run at least twice a week.
I can't jog around my house area because it will be dark by the time I reach home. Too risky for 'pretty girl' like me. WTH! *face palm* ...please don't vomit blood! kakakaka
Joining a fitness center is a BIG NO for me.
Why?
I feel too self conscious to be around many people.
Hate  stranger!
I tried but at the end wasted my membership money.
Why???
I am too shy to even run on treadmill together with other people. isk isk isk...
No wonder live in KL for more than 18 years still no friend. So anti social!!! Yup! yup! that's me...

End up bought my own machine....after 1 year plus running and that running belt became like that. Holy Molly!!!! Did I ran on it or break dancing???? ish ish ish...so brutally abuse!!!


See? See? ish ish ish..
yup ! yup! that zebra feet is mine...




I called for maintenance and after painful waiting period and IMA patiently make few phone calls and wrote few complaint emails...finally that technician came.

The verdict for this idiot (finger pointing at me! me! me!)...
I sprayed the oil at wrong direction and this cause the belt slippery and the alignment ran which also result for the thread to tear out.
Damn! it cost me RM560/ net for the running belt change.
WTH!!!

This time IMA learned faithfully from that technician on how to maintain that machine.
He even gave me the alignment key to tighten the screw for running belt alligning.
IMA wrote a note on which way to turn and so on. Very details note but mostly scribble and if I read it again it almost cause my eyes twisted. WTH!


Not a good student myself and very bad in dictation because I hardly read what am I scribble on that day. Over smart huh???

Then recently, IMA running belt ran out of alignment again.
Damn it!!! this is hard job.
End up refer to a youtube.
Due to lack of 'motor-skills,it took me 2 hours just to figure out which way to turn the alignment key.
After watch the 3 minutes tutorial again and again and again...Well... think I watch that for at least 20 times and still cannot figure out where is anti clockwise direction. WTH!!!

I feel wanna to pass out for my stupidity and lack of common sense in direction.

I thought my confusion just right and left direction. I don't mind people condemn me for not being able to differentiate right and left . I still need to refer to my hand for that since my left hand is with mole on back of hand.

But who knows I can't even imagine what is anti clockwise. I even refer to my watch but still turn that alignment key in wrong direction many times. Its like banging my head on the same wall and expect it to break through.

At this age , it is really hard for me to accept I am this lacking. The mistake which I realize clearly but yet I repeat it again and again in a broad day light. I am this bad???

Oh my God!!!! This is totally handicap???

My running belt work well and from time to time I still need to watch that youtube tutorial and my watch just to align it back.

**** bury my head down to the ground like an 'ostrichrina' **** isk isk isk

Damn it!!! This is totally gone case.

I FEEL HURT TOO

Wednesday, April 01, 2015 3 Comments
Last week, I got to know my mum was crying because she can't bear the pain from her hand and back. Then my dad who also getting weak and slower than before. It really hurt me very much!

As long as I am still living, I really wish not to see my parent to grow old in pain. It really hurt if we can't help them but to listen and watch from the sideline. I want them to be happy and leave peacefully without pain. Wish God grant my prayer!

The problem with old sick parent, they still thinking we are still kids and know nothing best for them. Their stubbornness is hurting people around them too.

I always told my parent they are lucky to have children to help them during the old age and can't they be a bit tolerant to listen to their children now?

My parent are inseparable couple. Especially my mum who is spoil by my dad. I always worried, what if one of them leave first? What happen to the other one? Can he or she take it for the lost?

Thinking about all this make me feeling sad and worried!
