Rose Latte

Hola!
About 2 months ago, I was given an assignment to create a web book about what is trending, and I chose Cafes! Which is really really trendy now in Malaysia right? So many new Cafes are opening now near my place.

I went to this cafe which is located very near Sunway University, and its called After Black! My sister recommended me this cafe because it was nearly opened that time and I decided to give it a try when I was with my friend! They followed along too.

It was full house when I went to this cafe which was during a weekend about 2 something in the afternoon! And we were very lucky because we did not waited long for our seats (just a minute or two)


Everyone can be seen busy eating and chatting in this cafe and the whole cafe was filled with laughters! It was very peaceful and relaxing.


The waiter recommended me to try out their specialty which is the Rose Latte, its a cup of latte, with a dash of rose syrup and rose petals are placed on the ring of the cup. I was super fascinated when she tried to explain it to me and I know I need to try this out.


Vintage decorations are placed in the half level of the cafe to give that whole garage, raw and vintage feel. I love the way they place their stuff uniquely and sometimes I wonder where they get such antique looking decorations! Very cute!


When we enter the cafe, music box, vintage radios are placed on the left as decoration. 


On the upper half level of the cafe, books and mini plants are placed on top of a book rack as the divider to divide the place away from the toilet and tables.


The bar made out of blocks of woods. First time seeing such unique bar! And it was very steady and firm.


Vintage weighing scales and clock.

That's all for my cafe review of After Black! Overall, the surrounding of the cafe was really good and it was peaceful and relaxing. The Rose Latte was really nice because this is my first time trying out something special rather than the usual Latte. The service was really fast and good too! Waiters were really polite. 

That's all. Thank you for reading! :)

Zhang Jia Jie

After the tons of assignment and finally done with them, the week after I went to Zhang Jia Jie! Which is famous for their mountain sceneries and I am very fascinated with the sceneries there.
I have been recording lots of Vlogs waiting to be edited and uploaded to YouTube (Which I think no one wil probably see lolz #selfesteemlow ) and so here are some teaser-sort-of pictures of the place I went! I went there on the 20th December 2014 till 28th December 2014 and not only I spent my 8 days in ZhangJiaJie, but I went to ChangSha for shopping, Feng Huang, and lots more! 

After about 1 month now ever since I came back from travelling, I have been resting a lot, practicing more nail art technics and tricks which of course I shouldn't be doing but its my interest, watching thai dramas - the one which I found interesting and its very thrilling when I watched it in my 8 days trip, and also catching up on my Running Man! Have not watched like 20 plus episodes. And its time to catch up! 

What's worse is I seldom go shopping now which is like twice or three times a week only, but I spent like three quarter of what I have saved for two months lol. Mostly on TaoBao I guess which I will be doing a haul blog post about my huge taobao haul - I bought shoes and bags this time fyi. after my ZhangJiaJie blogpost! So do look forward to it :P

So here are 2 pictures of me in Zhangjiajie!


Right beside me is the BaiLong elevator (not in the picture) and infront and behind of me are tons of mountains and forest! I was in the National's Park and throughout this whole trip I took like 4 trips of cable cars which is about 1400ft above sea level (can you imagine it how scary it is if it is broken lol) and also there are about 7 times for the cable car to have a slight drop when it went through some machine on the line lol. #badexplanation #imsorry


My lovely mother and I! We were hanging out in a pub in Ancient's Phoenix Town.
This town was extremely cold and I wore 5 layers and still feeling cold. There is also a stream breaking apart the town which makes the whole place even colder. Our tour guide decided to bring us to this pub for us to experience pub in China, which is my first time entering and it is free! You will only need to pay for the drinks and light snacks such as nuts if you want. In the centre (which is right infront of me from the place I am sitting) is the place for you to go out and sing! Also, the tour guide brought us here because it is warmer, WAY WARMER THAN OUR HOTEL ROOM and its very cold outside. 
You can really see our expression of entering the pub is like, "AHHH HEAVENNNN" With the mouth opening and slight eyes closing expression.


That's all! I will most probably post my videos on Saturday or maybe latest by next Tuesday! :) 
Thank you and sorry for the late post. :x

Taobao #2 Haul

This will be my 2nd taobao haul! And to those who are reading this, you are seriously wasting your time only HAHAHAHA.
Anyway this is a post since August and finally decided to post it up the following year wtf.
This post is make up of few orders!



First of is a black transparent box clutch! I wore this together with my sunflower dress during my brother's graduation. The quality was good and everything was nice to me! I have read the reviews that there are some people who bought this clutch experienced the gold chain losing its colour. This black transparent gold clutch costs 35 yuan and its free postage from the seller to the China's warehouse!


I bought this dress from taobao and the quality was SUPERB. Really superb. Then another day I was shopping in H&M and I saw a similar dress too!! And its the same quality but design is slightly slightly different. It was quite cheap, only 28.50 yuan! And free shipping within China.


I got this white skater skirt too! And it was only 20 yuan and this skater skirt has an attached safety pants too. Which I think it was super duper worth it even though it might be slightly more expensive than the other skater skirts found in taobao. And this includes safety pants! Read the review and it says the white is really good quality, and indeed it is! However, you can still slightly see that there is a pants in the skirt when you go under the sun.


Bought this dark blue top too! But they sent the wrong color to me, and sent me the black one. But the dark blue and black are also okay to me, so I didn't mind! Also, there is a tag saying made in korea behind it. So funny and not sure it is true or no. HAHAHAHA. Anyway, I bought this top just to match it with my skater skirt like the model above. This top costs 28 yuan and the quality is good too. 


Bought this set of top and bottom from taobao for 33 yuan too! When this parcel was on the way to my house then Joyce Chu new doraemon song released and she wore the same outfit wtf wtf wtf. Not feeling happy to have the same outfit at all HAHAHAHA. Sorry joyce! However this set of clothing material is good. Nothing much to comment but their S size is still big for me! Especially the skirt because it is not stretchable and it is loose for me HAHAHA. Gotta eat more. This set of clothing is 33 yuan and free shipping within China!


Also, I got myself a pair of shoes for the first time through TaoBao!! HAHAHAHA I was so afraid that the shoe might look ugly, or the sole came out and stuff like that, and also the pair I bought was a really cheap shoe, just 30 yuan! And I was keeping my fingers crossed that it will not be as bad as I thought. Even if the sole came out and stuff like that, it was only 30 yuan so.. why not give it a try, right? 
I got myself a pair of bunny shoes and I love it when I saw it in my school's bazaar one day. So when I came across this shoe in taobao and it was 30 yuan.. why not? HAHAHAHA.


The parcel when it came.


And the shoe! I see no came out soles and stuff HAHAHA. 


However there was a yellow spot as you can see in the picture above. Perhaps its an old stock :(


Also, there are quite visible glue stains on the shoes but thank God I chosen a black pair instead of a white one. If not I guess the glue stain is visible?


One side of the shoe have dented sort of rubber thingy and also visible glue stains! But it cannot be seen when you are wearing it and no one knows HHAHAHAA. 




The sole inside! In good condition and no horrible smell. 


And this is how it looks like after the shoe lace and the bunny ears! Cute right? The bazaar in my school sells for RM89.90 and I got it for 30 yuan. It is exactly the same pair too! I considered myself lucky for getting a shoe HAHAHA. My opinion about this shoe is, it is a very nice shoe but I got myself a pair which is slightly slightly smaller than my feet! But I can still wear it. However, since then my right side feet has a corn now. And it is painful because there is this part of the shoe which blocks my little last toe. And can be painful while walking for long in this shoe! Overall, if I got myself a size bigger it will be perfect.

And that's it for my second taobao haul! All this are purchased through an agent and for my soon taobao post, I decided to bought it directly from taobao WITHOUT AN AGENT. So yeah! See you in my next taobao post!

Day and Night Face Care Routine

Hello people! 
Past few years I have been walking back home from my high school, my face has about 1 or 2 small pigments due to the exposure of sun. When I was young, I do not really care about how my face is. But thank God during that age I do not have lots of pimples! (Maybe is in the family gene? Not sure.)
When I was 15, I was exposed more to facial products such as toner, serum and such during my second trip to Korea. And I did not know my face has so much dead skin cells!
So here I am just showing you guys my daily routine for my face. :) 
Hope you guys like it!

Day Time
Every morning, I will wash my face with a cleanser. I have been using Eversoft's Facial Cleanser to wash my face for years since 12! This year, there is a rash spot on my right cheek. And it look so awkward to have a slight red spot on my face. That is the reason why my face have been so oily!


I always apply a thin layer of Nivea moisturiser on my face to keep my face moisturise all day!


Then, I apply another layer of sunblock which is from Murad. I love this sunblock so much because it has vitamin C in it! 
However, one bad thing about this sunblock is it is oily. Which I do not really like and makes my face looks like I have not washed my face for years. -_____-
However, since it is good for skin, why not? :P


And that is it for my day time face routine before I head to school! I also apply a very thin layer of Aqueous Cream on my lips instead of lip balm. This is because my lips are very dry and no matter how much I drank water my lips are still dry. Just to summarize what product I use at night: Nivea Moisturising Cream and Murad Sun Block. For Lips, Aqueous Cream which you can find at any pharmacies.

Night Time

Every night we are supposed to applied toner. However, I do not apply toner because it gives that sticky feeling which I do not like. (I like it smooth!) Every night I have been using Beauty Talk's gel cleanser which gives a very smooth effect! I think everyone should try it.


Then, I will apply a thicker layer than day time for my skin!
To be honest this Nivea Creme did not state whether it is specifically for face. I just used it and since there is no allergy or any bad signs of this cream, I continue using it till now since the starting of this year!


There are days where I actually use my sister's gold beauty bar to apply the moisturising cream. Here is how to use it: apply dots of cream on your face, then on your beauty bar and start massaging the face !
And that is it for my night time daily face routine. I also apply aqeous cream on my lips too! :)

And that's it! Gotta rush to do my assignment now, :x

Mini Updates week 15!

By the way, week 15 in my title means the 15th week in Semester 2 now! :)

This week is considered one of the most relaxing week for me because its business charity week! I chose maths over business and my assignments for maths is finally over! While the business student will have to sell stuff and the profit earned will be their grades.. and maths student will have final exams.

To be honest, I had no interest in taking business at all. After listening to my senior that he had to sell stuff, its a totally no no to me hahahahaah.

This week is so relaxing that most of the class is cancelled because of the business charity week! And to the maths students, its holiday! ♡ except the fact we still have maths class 3 hours per week, but it is ok!
One of my friend actually admitted to hospital last weekend and she is finally discharged today! Hahahha thank god she is better now but her appetite level is still low, so its time to boost her appetite level and make her more hungry 💪💪
But we tried all food in taylors and we got bored with it...

There is this blogger which inspires me to blog even more (not stating who hahahah) and she is so inspiring! Gotta blog even more now HAHAHAHAHA.

Anyway, the next blogpost will be quite interesting (I hope) for you readers, so hope you will look forward in reading it! Bye ♡♡

Hmm.. Anything~

Was assigned to a group of 4 for an important module outline which is Introduction to Design in my semester 2! And we are finally done with assignments given for group work.
So glad to work with you guys, the bunch of fun people, <3.



By the way there is a reason why my title is Hmm.. Anything.
This is because every time we are together and when someone asks a question, the main answer would be ANYTHING. Like almost all the time.
This is because we couldn't decide on something well and we just go with Anything.
Super hilarious to us!

Anyway this is an appreciation post to thank you guys very much! Even though we didn't get the marks we were supposed to got but at least we are satisfied and our model has more insta likes. HAHAHAHAHAH

[REVIEW] Beauty Talk Double Cleansing Gel

I will be reviewing a new type of double cleansing gel by Beauty Talk today. It is stated on the box that it will deep clean pores, leaving skin instantly refreshed and refined. Not sure how true it is but I shall try it!




First, pump a generous amount of the Double Cleansing Gel on your hands.
Tip #1: If you have make up on, just place an adequate amount on palm of hand and massage in a circular motion. Then rinse with clean water. Repeat if heavy makeup is applied.
Tip #2: For daily cleansing, add water to turn gel into smooth foam, then apply foam evenly and massage. Rinse off foam with water.
 


Smooth and feel refreshed! So here is the look of the cleansing gel.


Back


Front


Front look of box


Back look of box.


Overall, I rate this a 4.5/5 ! This is because I like how it can be used to remove make up and for daily cleansing. Perfect! For the 0.5, its because it leaves an oily feel after rinsing my face. But I guess the oily feel is to lock in moisturize my face because it contains Sodium Hyaluronate! Which is to increase the moisture content in skin through washing and also increases moisture retention ability through keratins to achieve an oil moisture balance complexion, also giving a perfect healthy glow. Not to mention, it also contains mild natural enzymes that interact during washing to speed up metabolism of wastes in pores and clean dirt from surface of skin. It has a mild PH level close to skin, making it a non irritating cleanser that cleans skin from deep down!

This bottle is 200ML.
Suitable for all skin types.
Made in Taiwan.

Something to be discovered

I know its hard to find something about yourself. For example, talent. Till now, I do not know what am I good at. And I do not know whether i have those "super power" or "super mind" hahahah. No one will know till they discover themselves.

Let's just talk about talent. Its very very hard to find your talent. But when you discover it, you will use it to the fullest and will actually love yourself more. I believe every single of us have different talents and they are not the same. And I believe everyone is talented in MORE THAN 1 THING.
But then, what if you see your greatest enemy is talented in the stuff that you know you are not talented in? Are you going to keep practising that particular talent? I know practise makes perfect but, some stuff cannot be forced. To me, no matter how much you practice but no talent, I think lower chance you will actually be greater than people with talents.

This can be related to many stuff.
Lets give for example.. design.

Someone with talent in design
vs
Someone that is hardworking  in practicing design but 0 % talent.

Indeed, hardwork + attitude + talent = the best thing ever. But to me, I think someone with talent in design is totally better than someone that is hardworking in practicing design but 0% talent.

Again , this is what I am thinking.

Why?
These are just my thoughts.

What if your greatest enemy is the one talented in designing and you are the one that is 0 talent  but hardworking?
Obviously you will feel jealous, and this creates anger in your heart. Making you even more hardworking in something that you are not talented. Right? How about telling yourself and always remind yourself,

Jealousy is the greatest enemy.

In such a state, you should completely ignore your greatest enemy. Do not give a single care. Sometimes you need to act a little bitchy and tell yourself, " who cares he is actually good in design? Stupid. I dont give a single damn and I am sure there is something I am better than you." Then just walk away from there.
It seriously help for me lol.
But most people do not do that. Instead, they became jealous and from that moment, they start comparing their works to his.
Tell yourself, do you really think you are doing this right?? They just keep comparing and comparing. But when you are done with the semester and you got greater than him,what do you get?
You will only have a little happiness that will last for just a short moment and that happiness is gained from the wrong way.

To be honest, after completing my latest assignment. I am actually rethinking whether I should continue or no. This is because in that assignment, I have 0 talent in it. Then I told my mum that I am rethinking. She did not lecture me and scold me. Instead she ask me to think harder. hehe ♡
But for now, I do not want to drop it yet, I will want to finish my semester 2 and only see how. That assignment requires me to draw. And my drawing is damn shit hahahah.

I think everyone should at least sit by themselves once in a quiet place, relax and maybe listening to song, and talk to your innerself silently. Instead of trying hard to copy a talent of others, why not find it out yourself? Your own inner talent.

If your job is about doing what you love, you will love your job and instead of job, its a hobby. If your job is about doing what you love, you will love it everytime you travel to work and you wont feel tiring and whatever. Because everyday it brings you excitement. This goes the same to talent.

Instead of doing what you have 0 talent in, just to be the same as your greatest enemy so that you can win him, why not just find out what is your talent, make it as your job and be successful from there? Imagine you are doing a job you really like and successful, your greatest enemy will be jealous. It makes you feel way better than you working hard to win him. This is what I am thinking about.

Other than talent and design, it applies to many other stuff too!

Stay positive and do what you love. Indirectly you will be successful in your own way. Do not gain happiness the wrong way.

Just another last warning, this is what I am thinking and I am not accusing any of my enemy and friends.

Nights, x.

Taobao Haul #1

Finally, my Taobao haul arrive!!!
This is my first time buying from Taobao. When it arrive, I was super duper happy and it brightens up my day because the parcel came in the morning! 
The procedure is like this. I have to go through an agent. 
Step 1.: Order through www.taobao.com
Step 2: Pay money
Step 3: Wait for parcel to arrive warehouse.
Step 4: Pay shipment to Malaysia so that the parcel in warehouse will be shipped to our house.
Step 5: Arrive!!

It takes 8 days for it to arrive my house from the warehouse because the Malaysia custom office was closed due to Hari Raya! If not, it will be faster for it to arrive my house!


So here is my 2kg of items from taobao! As you can see, the parcel is very big compare to my hand! Hehe
 Below are the items that I bought from taobao!

First of all, the casings!

Its my note 3 casings! I super love them especially the light purple one! The fish bone, stickers, dust plug and screen protectors are free gift from my sellers !



This toilet plunger is also a free gift from my seller! They are so nice :)
Then for the clothings:



I bought this white dress and I super love it from the images from taobao. Sadly, it was not what I expected in the image. It is not body fitting to me! Maybe I am too skinny hahaha. Plus, there is a small hole near the chest area. But I think I can cover it if I wear a necklace! :) Overall, its worth price and the quality of this dress is very good! Thick and not sheer :) If not mistaken, its about RM 12! Free postage to the China's Warehouse.



This daisy romper is super loveeee!!! I super love this rompers! But the plastic which adjusts the strap is a little too fragile. It can be removed easily! Overall, I still super love this rompers! Even though it is thin and the part that has white polka dots and white daisy, it is very very sheer and can be seen through, it is still a good buy! If not mistaken, about RM 8 include free shipping to the warehouse.


This set of pom pom is also my other love! But, it is thin and can somehow see through, that's why I bought the black instead of the white one. About RM 12 per set include free shipping to China Warehouse.


My super love Stylenanda Inspired Long Jacket! Bought it about RM 15 include free shipping to China Warehouse. But I did not wear it yet because its abit too over to wear in Malaysia hahaha!

Total the clothings here are less than RM 50. Still worth it right! Some of my friends said the clothing on taobao if include the shipping to Malaysia it is still the same as you buy from Times Square. But I don't think so! It is maybe about RM 5 cheaper per item. Hahahaah. That is what I think :P

Overall the stuff that I bought is super love! Here are some tips of buying in Taobao through my first experience of  buying from Taobao!
1. The clothing's weight is approximately the clothing's length.
For example, the jacket that I bought was about 135cm long. The weight is about 135 grams! (Do plus minus at least 30 grams in it just in case it doesn't overweight)
2. Try buying items that have free postage to China Warehouse. Some sellers have promotions like buy above 20 yuan free postage, buy 4 items free postage and such. It really saves up alot of your money!
3. Try to get dark color clothings IF POSSIBLE. Because sometimes the white colors one are quite thin and can be seen through! For example the daisy romper and the pom pom sets! They also got sell the white colors one but according to the comments, its too thin.
4. Read the comments of the seller and also how many stars the seller have. If you are not sure of something, do chat with the seller! Most of my sellers are 24/7 online! So I can chat with them everytime and they reply very fast too :)

That's all for the tips that I have learnt throughout my first experience of buying from taobao! Second one is coming soon :P
