After my meeting with my college counselor, mum, sis and I headed to Petaling Street. I drove from college since mum just put  medicine in her eye.. I hate driving in KL. There was this maroon Proton.. Moronic driver.

I’m starting to enjoy taking photographs with the retro app on my Samsung S4. Photos turn out pretty nice.

Famous wanton mee at Petaling Street.

This is only a quarter of 1 out of 3 aisle. They even sectioned the wigs according to colours. Pretty cool huh? We found this HUGE costume shop somewhere in Petaling Street. They had soooooo many things there, it’s unbelievable.

That’s a real electricity hazard there.

 

So nostalgic. I used to have a fish lantern to play with during one of the Mooncake festivals.

Super cute magnets. I like the fish magnet.

Tea Set. I picked it out 😀 It was only RM39.90.

I wouldn’t have guessed these were nail polish if it wasn’t for the tag.

After Petaling Street and Central Market, we headed to Pavilion.

While visiting Daiso, we saw a lot of new weird items.. This porcupine glove mop thing is quite adorable.

Anyone wants to be a doggy? LOL.

Corn Cutter was one of the weird inventions they had here. Others were tomato slicer, potato cutter, garlic skin remover………… Endless weird inventions.

Betty Boop Phone cover.. I don’t think I can fit that (Let alone my phone) in my jeans shorts pockets.

Ohh ! Last night when we were at SS2 night market, we finally picked up the mini rice cooker. 1 each for me and my sister. She lives in NZ, and I’m about to go to NZ to study.. This would be the easiest and most convenient object ever.

Mine’s the cat one, while my sister’s is the one with the pink flowers.

Till the next entry! (:

We Killed The Sun! @ Kiss Me Sunway Lagoon Party

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in beauty, Blog Competition, Event, Product

After the Johnnie Walker Circuit Night, I was so exhausted! Especially when I had a morning event at Sunway Lagoon, I was knocked out pretty fast. But, boy, it was worth getting up at 7am!

As we were driving to the Sunway Hotel Carpark, we saw a huge crowd outside the entrance to Sunway Lagoon. Apparently some Family Day was being held on the same day, same place! Thank goodness we were quite early and easily found a parking lot!

Almost everyone kept asking me whether Dee was my sister! Well, that’s probably because we both French braided our hair and wore white cropped tops, shorts and slipper.

After the registration, we were ushered to a private area with wooden tables and chairs near Zazu Beach Bistro. They set up some of their Kiss Me makeup products and mirrors on each table where we did our own makeup while some of the inexperienced ladies had the Kiss Me girls to do their makeup.

Waterproof Mascara, Waterproof Liquid Liner and Waterproof Gel Liner by Kiss Me

After using their cleansing lotion and face powder on my eyes, I did my usual double winged eyeliner using their waterproof gel liner and liquid liner on top. After that, I curled my lashes and used minimal mascara on the top and bottom lashes. After we were done, Dee and I went over to Sui Ying and Angie’s table to chit chat while waiting. We were discussing on why didn’t Kiss Me provide us sunscreen or maybe BB cream with SPF which we found out why during the first challenge.

After a short while, we were briefed by the Head Marshal and led to Lake Kariba for our very first challenge! (He initially wanted us to jump into the REAL LAKE with super dirty water and fishes as our first challenge) We had to decide our team name (Theme: Any living creature in the water) and war cry there and then! We were so excited! We thought and thought, at first we came up with funny creatures like Pufferfish, Seahorses.. And then we finally chose Catfish! We didn’t want a fancy pansy or long war cry, so our simple war cry was ‘Catfish, Catfish, MEOOWWW!’ All of the marshals at the various checkpoints looked at us weirdly whenever we performed our war cry….

The first person in our team will automatically be the team leader, says the Head Marshal. Tsk. Dee was in front, so she became our Captain!

Team Catfish
Dee – Combat Baby (Captain)
Amber – Firelyamber
Sui Ying – SuiyingK
Angie – NgieBear

1st Challenge

The captains had to jump into Lake Kariba, swim around to get the KissMe Sunkiller Perfect Strong sunscreen and see the marshal nearby. There were so many girls, it was a little difficult for Combat Baby. Especially when she was at the far edge of the pool. The first team who got to the marshal won 10 points! Lucky them..

After that, we were given an envelope and further briefed while we were applying the sunscreen we have obtained from Lake Kariba. We didn’t had much time so we just simply applied everywhere we could on each other while listening to the marshal’s instructions. We had to get back to the meeting point at 12.40pm, giving us about an hour to complete our checkpoints.

When he pressed the horn, all the girls just disappeared into the big sea of people. We opened the envelope and quickly devised a strategy. YEP, WE ACTUALLY PLANNED FIRST. We quickly head over to the Surf Beach entrance to get a map The first map we took was in Tamil, we were so blur. LOL. Anyway, we laid down the map and started to pin point the 8 possible checkpoints. This must be some effect from me and Combat Baby’s gaming lifestyle, making us such competitive strategists.. Lololol.

I was the navigator, so everyone followed me. Even if I walked to the wrong place. 😛

Check Point 1 – Kayaking

*Two teammates has to kayak to make an infinity sign around the two floats in the lake.

SuiyingK and Ngiebear did the kayaking while Combat Baby and I took a second look at the map and planned where to go next.

While I was concentrating on the map, Combat Baby told me that the other two catfish were rocking the kayak like a pro!

Check Point 2 – ATV Ride

We went to the wrong way, actually walking to the ATV trail, thinking the checkpoint is somewhere there, but after a while, we all felt it wasn’t the right place, it hit me. I remembered where the ATV checkpoint was. Luckily, we didn’t have to go on the ATV Ride, saving us quite a lot of time, we performed our war cry to the marshal and headed to our next check point.

Combat Baby: Tsk! You come here very often, don’t you?
Hehe, my last visit to Sunway Lagoon was sometime last year, so I remembered how to get to certain places. Extra advantage. 😀

Check Point 3 – Creepy Crawlies (Rimba)

We knew we were going to an insect zoo.. But we didn’t really think about what we were gonna do there. When the marshal uncovered the box …. All of us just yelled out simultaneously.

*Each member has to find two Scrabble alphabets from a container filled with a couple of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. Then spell out the word with the alphabets found.

Okay, I made it sound so easy. LOL. Being the competitive strategists, team work was probably our strongest point. SuiyingK and Firelyamber would search for the alphabets and place it furthest away from the insects for Ngiebear and Combat Baby before searching for ourselves. The cockroaches made a lot of noise but they don’t bite or anything.

After that, we had to put back the letters for the net team. We made sure it was hidden underneath the a bunch of cockroaches. HEHE.

Check Point 4 – Davy Jones’ Locker

*Ride the Pirate’s Revenge!

I always hated this ride because of how tight they squash you with those protection stuff. They pressed onto half of my boobs and my rib cage. Yes, yes.. I know it’s for safety reasons, but it is the reason why I’d want to puke after the ride. ):

Anyway, we were having conversations during the ride. AMAZING. I don’t know how we did it, but we did. Minimal screamos and proper conversations. But when we were almost upside down, we screamed. When we got down, I think we completely forgot what we were talking about. The only bit I remembered was we were discussing on why we are having conversations during a ride. Then after the ride, we complained about why didn’t we strategize during the ride? Haha. Hahah. Competitive bitches, huh? 😛

Check Point 5 – Scream Park

We were initially looking for the native-related checkpoint but ended up going to the Scream Park first. We sought the marshal and jumped the queue at the entrance of Horrorwood Studios 2: The Zombie Apocalypse.

*Walk through the Scream Park.

This time round, SuiyingK said she was easily scared, so Combat Baby and Ngiebear held her tightly as we went along the route. I experienced the same layout of that scream park, so I had a rough idea of what goes on in there (What a cheat, gee, but I didn’t give tips to my teammates. HEH), so I led the way. It was so, so dark. Almost complete darkness, I swear. I was the blind leading the scared and screaming blind. While leading the way, the smoke played tricks on me, making illusions of human figures occasionally on my left and front. Other than that, it was all good. The girls at the back got the most jump scares.

Check Point 6 – Stupid Native Weapon

We finally figured that it was the Tomahawk. The Red Indian named Abachi was a mischievous little red Indian. We had a choice to ride the Tomahawk or solve the Rubik’s Cube. We chose the Tomahawk, but then realized it was a hassle, so we opted for the Rubik’s Cube. We only had to solve 1 side, so it was relatively easy. I remembered partially on how to solve it, so I followed Combat Baby’s advice – Try to remember as I do and successfully managed to solve one side. Abachi kept pressuring me, my mind almost went blank!

Check Point 7 – Puoooonggg!

It took us a while to find the marshal. Who would’ve known the marshal was dressed in a smoking hot animal skin outfit with face paint!

*Ride the Vuvuzuela

The hot marshal said we had 10 minutes left and the only way to get the stamp from her is to ask for permission to cut queue and be the first in line.

No shit was given at 12.30pm, Firelyamber took the lead and excused her team all the way to the top. I must have said ‘Excuse Me’ at least 30 times, with Combat Baby echoing ‘Excuse me, event’ and showing our event band. They were all definitely mad at us.. Luckily the person in charge let us go first! We were so lucky, I swear! Till now, I still feel so bad that we cut a long, long, longgggggggggg queue.

The Vuvuzuela was fun! SuiyingK was right, this was the best way to end our race even though we missed out 1 checkpoint.

Meeting The Head Marshal

We were the first to get back to see the Head Marshal. After he counted our stamps, we were free to go freshen up, change our clothes and head into the bistro for lunch. Luckily we were on time! We found out later that points would be deducted for every minute passed 12.40pm.

 

Just before we went to change. Make up still looks good. :O (WATERPROOF MAKEUP SO *OP)

*OP- Overpowered

Lunch & Pampering Session

They had croissants, rice, chicken curry and etc. I loved the croissant. It was really delicious.

Nail Parlour Section

After we ate, Dee and I did our manicures. I guess I was unlucky, I got an inexperienced nail artist, I couldn’t really hear her.. Neither could I understand what I could or could not do.. Oh well..

The nail dryer they provided was pretty cool. It blows out cold air when you place your hands underneath it.

Mine on the left (So plain huh? I should have just told her I wanted a French Manicure.. Dee wanted to do her nails for Tiesto that night, so her nails were all about glitter.

After our manicures, we went over to the photo booth to take pictures.
Me and Yuki (Left); Dee, me, Sui Ying and Angie (Center); Me and Dee (Right)

At about 3, they were ready to announce the winners of the race. 2 consolation prizes, 3rd, 2nd and 1st place. Guess what!!!!!

Team Catfish won first place!

WOO! My teammates thought I was crazy when I responded to the MC. I was so positive and confident, I blurted out fierce replies to the MC.

MC: Which team do you think it is?
Me: TEAM 14!!!!!!
MC: I don’t see any Team 14 here..
Me: DON’T LIE. IT’S TEAM 14!
MC: Well.. CONGRATULATIONS, GRAND PRIZE GOES TO TEAM 14!

Team Catfish  ヽ(*・ω・)ノ
Sui Ying, me, Deirdre & Angie
We were all so exhilirated! Sui Ying also mentioned it was her first time winning something! We were all so happy. I guess our strategy worked. 😀

After all the excitement, we took a group photo, split the hamper among the 4 of us and Dee and I left early because she had to go for Tiesto.

Many thanks to Manoah Consulting and Kiss Me for this wonderful experience.
Most photographs credits to Kiss Me
Other photographs taken with Samsung Galaxy S4.

My makeup still looks great huh? Even after half day of running.

Despite how good my makeup looks after a day of sweating around, I was super tired. It’s good to just go all out once in a while, considering how I don’t exercise as much.

Till the next entry! (:
I’ll do another post about what I’ve got from the prize hamper and goodie bag!

4 Girls and The Great Honda Hybrid Discovery!

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Product

Julie and I had the Honda Civic Hybrid ( Crystal Black Pearl) for 3 Days and 2 Nights! It’s great being part of The Great Honda Hybrid Discovery! Don’t be jealous now.. We’re not the only lucky ones being able to experience a Honda Hybrid car, you can too!

Sign up HERE and test drive a Honda Hybrid for 3D2N!

Take a peek at the interior of the Honda Civic Hybrid! I took this photo from the driver’s seat of course.  Doesn’t it look so sleek? Writing this blog post makes me miss it so, so much. ):

This is how the backseats look like. Do you see that air vent on the right side? No, that’s not an extra air cond but that’s the Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) airflow vent which helps to keep the Intelligent Motor Assist (IMA) battery cool and longer lasting. Neat, huh?

The keyless Smart Entry
GIRLS! You don’t need to search your bag frantically for your car keys anymore! Just walk up to your car and open the door! You have to be right next to your car door though, the sensor range is quite small, for safety reasons, I’m sure. Well, this keyless Smart Entry allows you to be more wary of your surroundings. It may sound very dangerous that it auto unlocks the car when you’re next to your vehicle.. But I find it very useful for those who always can’t find their keys in their bags.

1 safety tip is to quickly get into the car and lock the doors before anyone tries to reach out for you! Well, that’s the whole point of the keyless Smart Entry.


Dashboard Do you see the screen on the top left? That’s the i-MID Screen Display.
Ohh! I like how the speedometer changes colour! Well, it’s not done that way just for fun.. It informs about your driving style!

Green: Fuel efficient driving
Blue-Green: Moderately fuel efficient
Blue: Uneconomical driving Pretty cool huh? 😛 You can always opt to tell your passengers that your Civic Hybrid is funky that way though .. 😛

The red button at the bottom left is the ON/OFF button of your vehicle. It’s so cool that you just need to push the button to start up your car.
I had such an embarrassing moment when I picked up the car. I didn’t know much about the Honda Hybrid cars (Actually, I don’t know much about cars in general) and it was my first time driving a Honda Hybrid car… With a keyless Smart Entry…. That has the Engine Start/Stop button. I sat in the driver’s seat and didn’t know what to do. Don had to teach me how to start up the car.

First press the red engine button
Next, step on the brake pedal and press the red button again!

It was that easy.. There’s the instructions on the screen too, I don’t know why I didn’t read it. Quite stupid of me, I know.

You can control the i-MID screen with the steering wheel switch control.
You have 6 screens.
1. Fuel Consumption
2. Eco Assist Scoring
3. IMA Motor Assist
4. Time Display
5. Wallpaper (I didn’t put one, so I have no picture for it.)
6. Music! (Yes, I was listening to Dissolved Girl by Massive Attack)

Say hi to the steering wheel.
On the left, you have the audio control and the i-MID screen controller on top of it. Damn ! One thing I forgot to try was the cruise button ! Arghhh. Anyone who has tried it, do tell me how it was!

Bottle holder next to the hand brake.
I’m not gonna bore you with too much about the car specs and what not, you can always visit the Honda Malaysia website for more information. Here’s the direct link – Click me!

So how’s the ride?

On ECON
In total, I think we drove for about 3 hours. And the petrol meter didn’t even move that much. Really saves you a lot of money in the long run.
NOT ON ECON
The car definitely is more powerful, you can feel the difference. I don’t even need to explain much. Anyway, I think it’s sufficient enough for a daily car.

Honda Civic Hybrid (Left) and the Honda CR-Z Hybrid.
On Saturday, Yukiko, Sui Ying, Julie and I took our Honda Hybrid babies on a joyride, down to Setia Alam for the Honda Roadshow!

At about 10am, I drove to Julie’s place. She took over the wheel after that. She’s definitely a better driver than I am, and I ain’t complaining about being the passenger. HEH. HEH. HEHH!

What I like about the Honda Civic Hybrid:

1. Fuel efficient!
Therefore, less pollution and save cost on the long run! Yay!
2. High Performance
For a hybrid car, the performance is at least 8/10!

After meeting up with Yuki and Sui Ying, we drove to Setia Alam! 😀 We arrived at about.. 11am because of an unnecessary jam on LDP. We saw a ‘fountain’ caused by a water pipe burst, everyone just slowed down to take a picture of it. (You can see the ‘fountain in the video I’ve made at the end of the post)

Shoes of the day and the pic of 4 of us (Julie, Sui Ying, Yukiko and me)

Entrance to the Honda Hybrid Family Road Trip 2013!

At the roadshow, we learnt about how the Honda’s i-VTEC engine is assisted by the Intelligent Motor Assist (IMA)

Two is definitely better 1! Woohoo!

Julie and I both bought a bow. They’re so pretty, we couldn’t resist!

Meowww.

Cutest sock dolls EVER! Check out their stuff here!

  

After the roadshow, we were off to Taman Botani Negara. Bukit Cahaya. LOL . It was scorching hot, we all were almost dying. But the drive to Bukit Cahaya was so syok!

After a long walk at Bukit Cahaya, we drove back to SS15 to have some milk tea. I managed to snap this picture of this guy . I didn’t manage to see what he was selling though.

It was my first time at Bear Paw! I had Brown Rice Milk Tea for about RM7. It’s so, so good!

 

Julie and me. She introduced the brown rice milk tea. Yum yumsss !

Ohh! Before I end my blog post, take a look at this video on our Honda Hybrid Roadtrip! Enjoy! (:

BCL’s Kawaii Makeup Workshop – Shibuya Girl!

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Author, beauty, Product

I had so much fun at the makeup workshop last Sunday. It was my first makeup workshop and I really learnt a lot from Mr. Tanabe from Japan. Although… Personally, I don’t like putting a lot of makeup on myself (Or rather I don’t know how to do it the right way)

A Before-Makeup Picture.

Our workstation! (: (Gee, I need to learn how to take proper panaromas that won’t distort the table. Hahah)

Don’t these look so cute? 😀

 

Mr. Tanabe started of with foundation powder and then they eyebrows. I swear, I don’t know a thing about using an eyebrow pencil..

 

I swear, at certain angles, I can make myself looking like a monkey.

After that, he continued with the eyeshadow, gel eyeliner and liquid eye liner respectively. Look at the eyeshadow pencil above! It’s soft and spongy and super easy to apply.  

 

After that he taught us to put on mascara of 3 very different types. Starting with the Volume Lash Fiber, Lash Curler Express and finishes off with Lash Sculpture

He put it on the other bloggers and we can see the hugeeeeeeeeeee difference! :O

 

Look! Left side is with all 3 mascaras applied.

  

This one has a huge difference too!

After the makeup workshop, they gave us chocolates that they brought all the way from Tokyo! So sweet of them!

 

With Yeeing

 

So this is my sort of end product. Acting so 可爱 (Cute) right. Only know how to act, but in real life, so rough and un-ladylike.
I didn’t exactly have much time to do my makeup (Also skipped the blusher) and listen to Mr. Tanabe at the same time. I was too intrigue at what he’s saying. All the tips he has shared with us are really useful. One of the tips, he said I should blend dark brown and light brown for my eyebrows to match my hair (Of course, not too extreme). Also, he said, while using the Lash Curler Express, when you reach the end of your lashes, hold for 3 seconds .

 

The workshop lasted for about two hours. They gave us a bag with lots of goodies inside!

 

They gave us an eyeshadow, gel eyeliner pencil, mascara and a face wash that can remove natural makeup. Oh! And they gave this little limited edition mascara!

Eyeshadow, Eye Liner and the Mascara.

The limited edition mascara.

The Tsururi  Ghassoul Paste! I have yet to try this. Will make sure I do another blog post about this! (:
