GOGET MAKE MY LIFE EASIER

Friday, March 25, 2016 24 Comments
Time is Wealth...
Wealth can be accumulated...
If you let Time slips away just like that.....
Can you turn back that Time?

The place that I worked are rather small to get own despatch to run errands for the office. Anyway if hire one it will be another headache to manage them.

Odd job such as pick documents and all those running around task totally need someone reliable to do it. Can you find someone reliable easily? If you get one...can anyone vouch they are reliable?

I always wish that if money can solve everything...it would make our life easier. People like me don't have any liberty to use that term money can solve everything since the money that I have is rather limited to do that. haihhhhh... 

Anyway, for small thing like running errands that can save my time, I would rather spend some on this to eliminate unnecessary obstacle in performing my paid day job.

I installed goget.my since last year but only have faith to use them because I am so desperate and no choice to deliver some important documents but unable to duplicate myself at the same time. Of course after reading all those good comments online drive me to gamble my clicking fingers to post my first job poster.

My GoGet experience


1st errand posted - deliver documents within an hour. I got my gogetter within less than 5 minutes. Its a guy who drive a Suzuki Jimny. I met him at lobby of my office building. Kind of professional. 

My receiver received the document within half an hour after it was collected from me. My 1st gogetter save my time!

2nd errand post - deliver documents within an hour too .I got my gogetter within less than 5 minutes too. A girl who drive Viva waiting for me at the Lobby.

My receiver even praised her for her professionalism to making sure she deliver it to the right person. YES! I got the documents delivered less than half hour.

3rd errand post - deliver document within an hour too. I got my gogetter within less than 5 minutes too. This man suppose to collect the document from another office and deliver to my office.

A little hiccups for this one but overall experience they are extremely reliable and honest. Most important all item reach you safely.  

All these tasks arrangement from my smartphone while having breakfast.

instructions to start GoGet


Do you know that Goget is not about getting your document deliver? You can post an errands like buying eggs or milk, buy food for you, stand in line for you, doing research, data entry , paint your house or even set up an event for your romantic proposal to your beloved one.

STAY PORELESS NUDE WITH ZA PERFECT FIT TWO-WAY FOUNDATION

Monday, March 14, 2016 27 Comments
Recently, unboxing some of my last year Christmas sales shopping. I love shopping nearer to Christmas and New Year sales. I can get many pretty and good items at good bargain. Yeahhhh!!! its a bit late to unboxing my shopping bag but hey...I bought it as my beauty item stock. So now only need to use it!

Foundation by Kayo Horaguchi

I gotten this 2015 limited edition ZA perfect for two way foundation by Kayo Horaguchi. So love the casing full of floral and butterflies. I bought it during the Japanese cosmetic sales at Isetan, One Utama last year.

Who is Kayo Horaguchi?


She is a fashion designer who starter her new career as an illustrator and graphic designer in 2006. She is well known with her elaborates romantic image by illustrating vividly colored girls , nature, animals and other many motifs overlapping with each other. 

She also has her own original brand " Kayo Horaguchi " where she designs interior, stationery, clothes and other daily item. 

Recently , she is well known for her collaboration with Sanrio character ' Little Twin Stars ' also known as " Kikilala".


I bought this box for RM50/- which is great bargain for a limited edition and plus they include one refill pack in this box. WTH!

Can last for many moon for me! hehehehe.. pat on my back for this!

Foundation unboxed from its packaging

My experience using ZA Perfect Fit Two Way Foundation SPF 20PA+++


* Feel Lightweight when apply over skin and breathable

* I amaze with its poreless effect and also keeps my skin high moisture through out the day

* Again...I can't help to praise about it natural finish but magically hides pores at once

* My skin feel soft all day and no shining or stickiness effect with this.

How to use ZA Perfect Fit Two Way Foundation?


* Apply an appropriate amount over dry skin or slightly moistened sponge and spread evenly from the center of the face outwards.

Note : 
1. Please make sure to always keep sponge clean to assure a smooth even application.
2. Reducing the amount applied will lower the level of protection significantly. Since its only with SPF 20PA+++., it is recommended to use with UV protection of SPF 15++ or higher. In my case I use SPF 30PA++

What attract me to buy ZA Perfect Fit Two Way Foundation?

Well apart from the beautiful and 'kawaii' casing.....

It claimed :

* Smooth , micro fine powders when spread evenly over the skin.
* Minimizes the appearance of pores, uneven skin tone and dullness.
* Contains Collagen, Vitamin E and moisturising ingredients hyaluronic acid
* Gives a lasting bright finish.
* Anti shine powder absorbs excess sebum to prevent shine and stickiness

What is my say after experimenting going out for a day with ZA Perfect Fit Two Way Foundation?


I want this more and more and it really does what it claimed. Thumbs up!

Negative experience?

I need to extra careful because this foundation cake can turn into powder anytime soon with my clumsy character. hhehehehe...I just turn  my Collagen Etude House compact into powder last week. Thats the reason I need to unboxing this sooner than I planned. Haihhhhhh....

Our Clinelle Caviar Gold Review will really help you look better as well!

LAZY AROUND CHIANGMAI OLD CITY

Friday, March 11, 2016 30 Comments
Early this year, I was at Chiangmai, Thailand for 5N/6D trip.
I will share summarize itinerary in my later post..maybe next week!

After came down from Pai and Mae Hong Son, I spent 3 days exploring Chiangmai City. Since I stayed in Boutique Hotel which smacked in the middle of busy old city...so I just took my time walking and exploring around that area.

I even have favourite breakfast place. I found this awesome place while wondering around for breakfast. Yeahhh!!! I don't buy breakfast at hotel this time. I just wanna live like local. 

But...while most local eat noodles for breakfast, I end up eat bread and western style breakfast here. I just can't resist the fresh from oven bread smells at this place.

When I read this signage...I was like..Whoaaaa!!! Blue Diamond The Breakfast Club. Do I need some sort of membership to dine in here?

I was so wanna sit down and dine when I randomly walk in this corner lot terrace house which converted into a cafe.

bakery and cafe

Look at all those fresh from oven bread, My favourite of all is their warm cinnamon bread. Simply delicious for my breakfast with glass of Avocado Milk to start my day.

Buddhist temple

After energized myself at Blue Diamond Club...goshhhh!!! name sounds like sort of 'gigolo club' or something huh? I then went to visit the old Buddhist Temple called Wat Chiang Man which located in the North East corner of the old walled city.

This is the first Temple in Chiang Main,which built by King Mengrai in year 1296, This Temple housed two rare Buddha Statues. One the Crystal Buddha and the other is the Marble Buddha. At the rear of the main Temple stands an ancient Chedi decorated with Elephants.


dogs

Gosh!!! I notice most dogs in Chiangmai wear clothes. Super cute! Guess because of the cold weather of Chiangmai since I went there early Jan.

fruits

I then continue my walking tour along the ancient city wall which surround by moat to separate between New and Old City. I found this fruit vendor selling assorted cut fruits. Gosh!!! I just can't resist but to buy some. I end up have a little picnic across the market by the river while watching the fish swimming around. Such a calm and relaxing day for me.

snacks

I explore the market again after my short picnic.

Thai massage

Then I went for a must do itinerary if in Thailand. Massage! Massage! and Massage...kekekeke.
See the masseur in action!

Thai food

I walk back to Blue Diamond Club to try their vegetarian Khao Soi a must dish to try while in Chiangmai. Simple delicious meal. 

Then I went for mani and pedi moment at Chic Nail Spa. Sorry no photo. Forgotten to take because its super cheap and awesome pampering moment.

ice-cream store

Since its a hot day, I tried the coconut Ice Cream below my hotel. It was awesome!

nuts

My market trip results! hahahaha...back home full of this tea, spices and snacks from Chiangmai.

At night I went out for dinner...but end up got bruises on my knee. Yeahhh!!! I fall down. Road too dark and I felt somebody was pushing when I pass by the big old tree. eeeeeeee....scaryyyy!!!!

plaster

I went on with my plan to have massage session again at night with my bruise knee. kekeke

Women's Massage Centre

I prefer the massage place which I went early of the day. If you notice, this woman went for twice massage session in a day. Goshhh!!!! talk about body pampering moment!

SOOTHES SUN BURN WITH THE FACE SHOP DAMYANG BAMBOO GEL

Wednesday, March 09, 2016 25 Comments


I gotten this Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel from The Face Shop last  Christmas. The Face Shop was having a Christmas party and I happen to be there browsing around. Not sure how much is this gorgeous thing cost because I got it as goodies bag. I think its not expensive.If you are lucky you may get to buy one free one for this item.




This tub is super big for the price. Since name also Damyang Bamboo...even the tub look like bamboo. Nice one!



I am quite a fan of Aloe Vera Gel because of its soothing effect. I usually brought it along with me when traveling especially to hot and humid country. I can apply the gel on my face and body to soothes it out. One thing I hate is the gel will be sticky...yucks!!!

Tadahhhhh!!! this The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo surprisingly less sticky and easily absorb into the skin.  It contains 99% Damyang Bamboo extract with no perfume contained.

tadahhh!!!   my stereotype pose ...kekekeke

My experiment result :

* Applied on my face before sleep - I wake up the next morning with no oily face. My face feel smoother.
* Applied it onto my scratching bruises - it dry up and soothes the bruises. I could tell this item will be perfect for sun burn too.
* Applied like a body lotion - my skin feel refreshing and moisture.
* I mixed The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Gel with BB Cream and the result was perfect. 

Overall, I love The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo because it helps to make my skin look healthier and its affordable too.

Oppsss!!! One thing I don't like about The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Gel...

I wish the packaging comes in tube. One need to use spatula or clean finger to get this gel out from container. You don't want bacteria breeding in this tub right? Plus this tub is way too big for my limited luggage space. How to bring this for travel? haihhhh!!!!

Have you try The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Gel before?

Tell me you experience....

starbucks cup with a name on it


I was sulky for the last 2 weeks. Not in the mood to even do anything. Goshhh!!! aging syndrome is closer to me. WTH!
I manage to get to my senses to the reality of living and surviving alone. Don't really have anybody to turn to for comfort , I comfort myself easily. WTH! Sounds pathetic life, huh? I chose to live this way anyway...I will choose this again if giving a chance again. ish ish ish...stubborn fella. One lonely anti social fella!

Back to the reality of life again...I am having this painful which I thought just a normal muscle pain for the pass one month. I got it from my own negligence. Haihhhh!

I wanted to get the car lock from back seat. Since the lock ran far from my arm length reach, I end up twisted the whole body to the 45 degree...eerrrrr I guess its 45 degree because I don't measure...ngeeeeeee...by the way who measure that? Thats how its happen. From then, the pain is bad and still bad while I am writing this post too. It is ok when walking but its super hurt when I sit and then start to walk if I don't adjust my position properly.

At night, the feeling is awesome hurt too. I thought its bone crack or something or hit the nerve. I decided to see doctor after a month.

clinic

The waiting area at 5th floor Orthopedic Specialist clinic at Gleneagles KL. No point asking me to make appointment when you still entertain me only after 30 minutes. Huh! Me and my impatient face. So attitude problem ar me? Some more made me watch the AFC channel which made me super hungry with all those good food.

I could say here is better than waiting time at government hospital.


framed certificates

Prepare my mind set to reject all those expensive tools or medication after the consultation.


Kuala Lumpur skyline

I was led to this room with this nice view. They don't even clean the window properly. My photo could have been clearer and better than this without that dusty glass window.


girl
NO OPEN MOUTH POSE!!! Now I can see my lower lips is thick...haihhhh

I was told to change to this Light Green hospital uniform. Gosh! that nurse ask me to take off my pant. Lucky still can keep my underwear on. Then realise that this uniform tied on the back. This means that ....my back will be exposed?
Otteoke!!!!
This means if the doctor ask me to turn my back and bend down...my bottom will expose to him? 
Omo! my I wore my favourite green color underwear....you know how its like when it come to favourite things in life. We wear it over and over again even it faded or even its torn. isk isk isk isk...why I don't think about this detail before I come for this appointment??? Wae? Wae? Why? Why?
I will be humiliated today....thats the first thing come to my mind.

I waited in nervous position. Mind busy thinking. How to act? How to save myself from being humiliate badly! Yeahhhh!!! since I can't totally save myself 100% so I can at least salvage the whole situation up to 50% , right????

Doc : Hi , Rina! How are you doing?

Me : Not that good! Old woman just crack her bone, maybe....

Doc : Old??? You old woman? You look so young? Married? 

Me : No. Single.

Doc : Divorce?

Me : Doc! just because I am in the forties doesn't mean I am a divorcee if I am single. 

Pouting my lips angry bird attitude starting...

Doc : hahahaha... thats not what I mean! Sorry! I am sure many man out there...get to know them...

Me : I don't want to spend my life taking care of others and do house chores....hehehehe cheeky laugh.

The doctor laugh with me...and sighhhh...shook his head.

Doc : How long you have been in pain?

Me : A month.

Doc : What take you so long to come?

Me : I thought just normal muscle pain and it will go away eventually. No big deal! Who knows this last for a month and the pain make my life a misery.

Doc : Let me  check you. Lie down here.

Otteokke!!!! Howwwwwww??? The humiliation moment is coming now....

I lie down nervously...then the doc check on my big toe.

Doc : You have bad flat feet. Why don't you consult Dr Loh. He is an expert at this. You need a surgery fast. If not it will get worst and you will be limping.

Me : Surgery? Many stories I read surgery is the last thing to do. 

Doc : Go get consultation fast or you will regret.This definitely going to get worst. Yours is inheritance. Did you blame your parent? 

He was laughing while pulling my leg to front to check my flexibility.

Me : Done the blaming game long time ago and now live with the fact that I am going to grow old as handicap old woman.

Doc : Why say that???? Go get help. Talk to Dr Loh. He will help you.Now I want you to lie to the side and your back facing me.

Ommooooo...the moment of truth will reveal. Haihhhhh!!! I turn to the side slowly with hesitation. WTH!

Doc : Next time wear short ya...

I can feel he was smirking  at that time he said that.

Ommaaaaaaa!!!!! shall I jump down now?????????? Somebody strangle me! Please let me faint! Harry Potter!!! please lend me your invisible cloak! Chaeballllllll!!!!

Haihhhhh....the rest of test was like me holding up my embarrassment. Cold sweat and whole body feel hot. haihhhhh..my bad! I should have been more thoughtful. 

I throw away my favourite underwear that night itself! You are history to me!!!!

Doc then sent me away for X Ray. Then meet him again with X Ray image. 
Thank God! My pelvis bone is still intact and everything in order. Doc said it may be my muscle twisted badly. He prescribe with some medication and some external acu pressed plaster which I rejected and insist on getting my own salon plas which is cheaper. I am now attending a weekly physiotherapy session to recover the pain. 

If by next appointment which will be another 3 weeks, I still not recover...he will send me for MRI. Haihhhh...X Ray and his consultation cost me hole to my dear purse. MRI may burn my purse. haihhhhh!

Doc : Don't do any house chores. Don't lift up any heavy things too.

Me : Don't worry! house chores??? Well..I am single...this chores not even in my life book. I live as I pleased!!!!! 

Doc : Lucky woman! Many women will envy you with that statement.

He send me away from behind.

Me : hehehehehe...yeayyyy!!! C you soon!

While making a peace sign.

Doc : C you....wear short next time...ya???

F!!!! Why he need to be this naughty to remind my embarrassment?

I turn to him... and look at him...

Me :  Why you need to remind me thattttt???? Haihhhhhh!!! 

Not sexy to wear short underneath long pant! What you know??? Never see woman wear bikini before meh??? Just this is one ugly bikini! huhuhuuhuhuhu...I wish I can spit out that words to him. But it will give me more shame than ever!

Put my head down and cover my face with one hand then walk away soonest possible.
I wish I can disappear with blink of eyes! Ommaaaaa!!!!

I heard he was talking to nurse...that Rina... so funny. She make me laugh!
He was laughing at me...so hate him! I want a gun at that moment and shoot him away!
I can't even take that as compliment but totally embarrassing for me.

This stubborn woman vow will only attend physiotherapy for one session next weekend and then decided to do the rest herself at home. 

clinic

I want to avoid this place!!!! Now I walk slowly like a tortoise when the normal me walk so fast. My colleague said I now walk like penguin. WTH!!!!

My new nickname is 'PENGUINA'! haihhhhh!!!!!
