Salam Ramadhan and Olla everyone!

Do you know that Bamboo able to flourishes in extreme conditions. Apart that Bamboo able to withstand a hurrican’s force it also helps mitigate water pollution due to its high nitrogen consumption. It also able to generates up to 35% more oxygen then equivalent stand of trees. These are some of the many reason Gucci decided to came up with Gucci Bamboo.

The modern Gucci woman shares bamboo’s characteristics. She balances strength and confidence with her innate femininity. She bends yet she does not break. Like bamboo, she is full of vitality, she is adaptable, and she faces life’s changes with ease. She is an alluring mix of many sides.

If you follow GUCCI then you might have noticed that this fragrance is actually derived from their famous GUCCI Bamboo Handbags collections. In fact, the iconic GUCCI bamboo handles for handbag first appeared, World War II in 1947. The bamboo handles were so interesting and distinctive that the bags became an instant hit, sticking around well past the end of the war to be carried by some of the biggest celebrities and tastemakers of the 1950s and 60s.

 

Move forward to current time, we now have GUCCI Bamboo fragrance.

The one I am holding in the picture is 50ml version. If you can see the box is in light pink shade that represent the feminine side of a woman. The strong elegant GUCCI logo in silver match the overall personality of the perfume.

Look at the bottle. So stunning. It comes in a diamond shape glass bottle with a silver cap that replicate bamboo. After all it is GUCCI Bamboo. I personally like the classy vibe it gave to my vanity table.  

 

image

As for the smell, it is more towards floral yet woody. It greet you with citrusy smell of bergamot. It also comes with the exotic floral heart of ylang-ylang, Casablanca lily and orange blossom. The woody notes comes from sandalwood, Tahitian vanilla and amber were used for the base.

Personally, I would wear this perfume for an important corporate meeting or a date night out with my hubby. Because of the feminine yet empowering scent, it gave the sense of confidence.

2012-01-03 09.56.16

Salam Ramadhan and Olla everyone!

Nak bercerita and share sikit harini pasal promotion hari raya di Jakel. Korang dah check it out ke belum? Bagi yang masih tengah survey2 bole la get more info kat sini. Baru2 ni illy dijemput untuk hadiri majlis Penampilan Artist dan Pelancaran Gempak Raya bersama Jakel di Shah Alam.

2012-01-03 09.28.29

 

Actually this is the 5th time dorang buat roadshow dan di final nya dia Shah Alam on 27 June haritu. Illy setiap kali gi shah alam mesti teringat zaman study dulu hehe. Chewah.. banyak betul perubahan and kalau korang familiar di sini. Confirm senang nak cari Jakel. Sebab bangunan nya betul2 bertentangan dengan pintu belakang Uitm Shah Alam. Bangunan 3 tingkat ni punya la banyak pilihan dan memang bole rambang mata rasa nak  semua sebab cantik –cantik sangat.

Seperti 3 tahun yang sebelum nya Aaron Aziz adalah ambassador baju melayu Jakel dan tahun ni digandingkan bersama Nabil Ahmad. Bagi pakaian Wanita kita ada Rozita Che Wan dan bagi kanak- kanak pula kita ada baju raya koleksi upin ipin yang di gayakan oleh Mia Sara dan juga Raykal. On that day, illy berkesempatan la jumpa mereka kecuali Che Ta. Tapi kalau korang ada datang Jakel outlet KL on 13 atau 20 Jun masa tu Che Ta ada. Pengacara hari tu ada Dee Jangan Ketawa, terhibur kami dengan pengacaraannya.

Masa tengah sidang perasmian tu, kami diberitahu yang Jakel da sediakan 1 JUTA baju raya pada harga yang menarik serta design yang pelbagai untuk jadi pilihan bergaya di hari raya. Bagi siapa yang ada kat Shah Alam haritu juga 100 helai baju melayu Aaron Aziz ada di beri percuma untuk peminat dan pelangan setia Jakel. Syarat nya korang datang ambik coupon lepas tu beli baju melayu Aaron Aziz (hari tu discount RM150 jer) pastu bole redeem sat u lagi pasang free. Tak ke berbaloi tu? Kita selalu kalau beli satu baju melayu dah berapa kan? pastu nak kena beli butang la sampin la banyak citer.. Kalau beli set Aaron Aziz, Nabil Ahmad atau Upin Ipin. Tak payah risau semua tu da dijual sekali termasuk.

Actually, ini adalah tahun pertama baju melayu dan baju kurung Upin Ipin berada dipasaran. Illy pun pergi la jengok apa yang bezanya baju melayu upin ipin ni dari yang lain. Kualiti bagus, kain sejuk, (adik Raykal cakap ada air-cond haha) pastu ada sulam kat pocket dan butang baju melayu dia comel karton Upin Ipin. Paling best ada 30 warna yang bole dipilih. Jadi tak kesah korang tema warna apa, Insya Allah datang jengok sini ada la yang sesuai tu.

 

2012-01-03 09.42.41

Tengok tu bukan main ramai peminat nak tangkap gambar dengan Upin Ipin, adik Mia Sara dan Raykal.

Pada hari roadshow ni special sikit sebab ada lelongan baju raya oleh artist ni. During Happy Hour dorang pun lelong baju-baju koleksi mereka dan memang ramia orang rebut peluang tu. Punya la ramai orang serbu Jakel aritu memang meriah la.. Kalau korang tak suka bersesak dont worry… Bole datang timing yang korang rasa selesa sebab Jakel buka 10pagi sampai 10 malam sampai la malam raya. So kalau korang jenis yang suka beli last minute tu pun boel singgah Jakel malam raya before balik kampung.

2012-01-03 09.53.53

2012-01-03 09.54.49

Honestly speaking, illy rambang mata. aku dah macam tak keruan. Semua pun cantik menarik. Kalau duit ni bole main petik2 jer dari pokok memang illy da borong la untuk family dan sedara sebab ish… memang cantik la choices pun teramat la banyak nyer.

 

2012-01-03 10.00.07

Kalau korang naik tingkat satu akan jumpa koleksi baju Aaron Aziz dan Nabil Ahmad. Macam - macam colour ada and colour yang dijangka hit tahun ni antaranya hijau zamrud (colour fav my dad), pastu biru diraja (royal blue) , peach , jingga, hijau tiffany, hijau mint dan merah cili. Kalau beli Nabil punya collection dia jenis 2 tone so macam ada gradient baju nya.

2012-01-03 10.00.51

Bosan yang kosong? yang bercorak pun ada.

Bagi yang teringin nak melaram macam Che Ta, kali ni Jakel ada keluarkan 10 rekaan eksclusif Baju Kurung Moden Rozita Che Wan dan harga nya bermula dari RM329 ke atas. Bole la jengok2 Jakel yang berhampiran untuk check it out k? Buat masa sekarang Jakel ada 19 cawangan termasuk satu di Sabah. Dengar citer cawangan di Serawak juga tengah dalam planning.

Halal Food Chiang Mai Changklan Road, Box Shop

Jun 26, 2015

 

image

Salam Ramadhan and Olla everyone!

I have been wanting to write a post about our favourite Halal Shop in Chiang Mai. Why? Because we been missing their food ever since we come back to KL. This place totally deserved a blogpost.

In end of Apr 2015, our lil family have 7D6N trip to Chiang Mai Thailand and it have been the most amazing trip we had so far. First of all because of the amazing food thailand got to offer. hehehe To be honest, we are kinda “prepared” to encounter with difficulties to find halal food. All thanks to our Bangkok Trip hahaa

2015-05-01 08.07.11

This time around when I went to Chiang Mai, I actually brought over my magic cooker and some rice just incase we encounter the same experience like Bangkok. The best part? We totally forgot to pack the metal container for the magic cooker and have to use ceramic mug and aluminium foil to cook instead. hahahahaha We actually realised it when we already on the plane. Too late to run back home to bring it huh? LOL Anyway, it have been very useful that we managed to cook Sofea’s food using it. We made a fish porridge for her.. nyum nyum!

 

image

 

We are actually love our hotel location very2 much because it is located at Changklan Road. It makes it so much easier to locate halal food. Also did some research on where to eat as we checked in to our hotel. We tried to walk to locate nearest halal shop. It is not that easy k? We went to Chiang Mai during their hot season and the temperature during our stay varies form 38-46C. So, taking a walk with an infant under the hot son could be quite challenging. Lucky for us we got an umbrella yippieee yeay!

This is when we found Box Shop it is located on the Changklan Road. If you are  walking from the Anusarn Market location just go straight towards the Royal Princess Hotel and walk straight ahead. Or you may just take a tuk tuk and get them to send you to 185/6 Changklan Road.

image

This shop is actually more like a coffee place that serve yummy hot dish as well. The price is slightly more compared if you go to other local’s hawkers. We find it very acceptable and resonable because the restaurant is air- conditioned (we really grateful that time place have air-cond as the sun is blazing generously beside the road) and the food they served is just amazing.

Check out our Shrimp Tom Yam above. So sedap! Can still remember how it tasted like. The fish is so fresh and juicy. The soup have a nice asian twist aroma. Just soooo satisfying. The portion is good as well. Two adults could share this happily. Cost : 95 bath

 

image

Next we have this Sour Soup with Shrimp. Have you eaten a flower in your soup? We have! haha.. It is actually our first time trying it this dish. Never come accross this dish before in my life. I dont even know the name of the flower there. The verdict? This is one of the reason we wanted to come back for more! hahaha This dish is served with crispy fish fillet on the side. Yummy! Cost : cant recall but definately worth every penny.

 

image

You should not leave Chiang Mai without trying out their Fried Chicken with Cashew Nut. Even if you walk around Chiang Mai’s gift shop you can easily spot they have cashew nut every where. We got curious and end up trying out this yummy dish. Cost : 55 bath

 

Did a video as well.Do check out below and while you are at it, don't forget to subscribe to my channel. (sempat tu iklan hahaha)

 

We like this place so much that we actually went to this place few times during our stay. The owner is a very nice lady and her staff are super friendly as well. They could communicate well in English. Most important they serve Halal and clean food in a comfy environment. Wanna see what else we tried? check out my insta below ( and please like and follow me… iklan lagi la alang2 kan? hahahahahaha)

It is like food festival here in thailand :)

Here a picture of us to end this post. Sofea is happily sleeping on my lap while we eat. and yes, dont forget to try out their honey milk drinks and their 3 layer coffee. Sedap and melegakan tekak. hahaha… I am seriously counting days to our next trip to Chiang Mai. Insya Allah will be going again before the year end. Semoga dipermudahkan. Amin. Well, I hope you like this post and thank you so much for dropping by and for spending time to read this post.

Senang Sahaja, Courts Ada

 

image

 

Salam Ramadhan and Olla Everyone!

How’s your Raya preparation? Hope everything is going great at your end. As for me, I am the type who like to “berjimat” and normally I would try to purchase items when there is promotion. I mean, why not save some money and get the exact same item way cheaper during promo? hehe

As we are all aware that festive seasons are the best season to shop great thanks to the great deal offered! haha So, earlier I was invited to visit Courts Setapak at Jalan Setapak to check out what they have to offer. We had a good session and thank you to Mr. Tim Luce, Country CEO of Courts Malaysia for giving us a tour around the premise.

I have been to the premise few times earlier when I was staying in Setiawangsa. Do you know that Courts have been in Malaysia  for 28 years? In fact, I remember visiting Courts with my dad back then.

 

image

 

If you have been to this place before, you able to see the improvement made. Good job on that Courts! As you walk in, you will be greeted with lots of IT products such as smart phones, smart tv as well as laptop and accessories. According to Mr. Tim, Courts is offering 70% more products in order to give customer more choices.

As you walk further in, you will see a beautiful big staircase. The whole place is re-designed to give more space for their customer to shop more comfortably. I personally found it to be spacious.

image

We were also given a product demo of the latest vacuum cleaner in the market. Introducing Dyson. You may check out more about the product by visiting them. As for me, I like that it is compact and the suction power is quite impressive.

 

image

Want to buat kuih raya? hehe.. I saw this! Good deal huh? If you want even better deal, dont forget to visit them tomorrow! They are having MASSIVE cash discount up to 95% storewide and as well as 2 units of free pillow (first 150 customers).

 

image

I am eyeing on this steamer. Isnt that a good deal? I remember some time ago that steamer could cost a bomb. If you visit them tomorrow the first 30 units will be selling at Rm99. That’s even greater saving! haha

image

 

I want this Samsung Robotic Vacuum cleaner so badly that you just cant imagine. Look at the price, look back into my purse. Fine, I will get you one day. If you are thinking of getting some essentials and do not have the cash in advance, sweat not. Courts are renowned for their credit services.  Apart from the lowest price guaranteed (they actually claimed to check prices daily), if you purchase during this festive season they are offering a 90days terms where you can start paying only after 90days. Isn't that neat??  I also found out that they are having lots of cash back program.

For example, I purchase this beautiful baby (that I have already love and adore) at RM1999. I will be entitled for RM150 cash back and RM100 (duit raya) and even will be getting a chance to get RM500 worth of duit raya. Not just that, I am also entitled for a purchase with purchase program. By adding RM1, I could pick to purchase an Alcatel smart phone or a Micro Hi-Fi by Philips and RM50 worth of petrol card. Isn't that awesome or what?

 

image

Let’s check out the next floor. In this area, you will be able to find lots of furniture. From classic furniture to the modern-designed pieces as well lots of living room accessories. As you can see from the picture above they also have a great variety of rug that you can pick from.

image

Check out the chair selections.

image

Like the design but wanted it in different colours? You may also customise that to suit your house theme.

image

Look what I found here. A sofa bed that only cost you RM299. If you come on Saturday the first 20 units will be sold at RM199. That’s like RM100 worth of saving!

image

You don't have to worry about maintenance as Courts provide an extended warranty as well. Do talk to their sales person to get more info on this.

image

image

Moving to the final floor, this is the place where you may find bedroom essentials. On top of that, Courts also offer curtains, wall clocks and much more!

 

image

Could you spot me in there? hahaha.. I was wandering around and cant help to snap pictures for a deco inspiration.

 

image

The new renovated Courts store comes with 18 cubicles of bedroom display area based on unique and pretty bedroom products and interior design. It gave you the vision and inspirations. The above 2 design are my most favourite. You may check the rest out by visiting Courts Setapak. Do you know that they also have 30% extra discount and free delivery? yippee yeay!

image

I am saving the best for the last. My top favourite product. Custom made bed. There are 6 steps to get your own. All you need to do is just pick your mattress type, what kind of finishing (they also have anti- mosquito bed) and what type of head board as well. This is one of the innovative solutions for bed that I have ever come across. As for the price? Sooooo affordable that almost everyone can has their own personalized bed. Can’t wait to bring my hubby to visit Courts Setapak! After all, we are actually in need of a new bed. My husband has a back disk problem and it is best to find the right support that he need. *wink wink*

 

image

image

We are at the end of this post, that Mr. Tim with my fellow bloggers from Nuffnang. We are hanging out at the Lounge area. If you are in need of a 5 mins break, you may do so here. hehe.. I hope you like this post and hope that you find it beneficial if you are in the market to shop of IT products, furniture and more. So, Happy Shopping and dont forget to visit them this Saturday!

Laurier Night Safe - Review

Jun 23, 2015

 

2015-06-20 11.49.46

 

Assalamualaikum, Salam Ramadhan and Olla everyone!

Apart from applying skincare and make up, it is also very important for a woman to feel the freedom to be active and have a total confidence. Well, woman being a woman it is easier said than done. All thank to our friendly “red kawan” who likes to visit us once a month.

The thing about having the “red kawan” visit is that, it just messed up with your hormone and wouldn’t it be great if there is a sanitary pad product that makes the experience far more pleasant? As in no leakage and comfy dry surface.

Today, I would like to share with you about this Laurier Night Safe, which is actually a new innovative sanitary pad range by Laurier. Not just that, I have also done test to check out if it really does what it claimed. Wanna see the result? jeng jeng jeng… wait till end of the post! haha

 

2015-06-20 11.48.35

If you are the type that has a heavy flow then this is a very good option for you. This sanitary pad is available in 30cm and 35cm in term of length (the one I’m having right now is the 30cm version) and it gave the assurance of no leakage.  In other words, worry free nights that allow you to have a good rest in order to pursue your active lifestyle the next day.

2015-06-20 12.01.29

As you can see it comes with this individual packaging. As you pull that blue sticker it takes out the outer layer all together to make it easier for you to apply it on your undies.

2015-06-20 12.03.33

Then you just take it out like so, to reveal the wing.

2015-06-20 12.04.22

Ta… da… there you go. As you can see, it also comes with a wide hip guard and it also designed with triple wide guard to prevent back leakage, giving you maximum protection.  Yippie yeay! No more “red kawan” leaving stain on your favourite undies!


It makes you felt drier like never before as 80% of fluid reduced and all of that credits to the innovative Quick Dry Mesh Surface & Quick Lock System that able to seal the fluid within the centre core with 2x faster absorption. No leakage of the “red kawan”. This product also claimed to be leaving you 5x drier. I got very curious and end up testing it power haha It really does instantly absorb the fluid…

   

2015-06-20 12.10.47

As you may saw from the picture above, these are the items for my experiment! Felt like I am back to Microbiology lab during study time..Only this time no lab coat and no fancy equipment needed. haha All you need, is some water. You may use plain water, I decided to use coloured water in green so I can show it clearly here.

In the instagram video below, you may see how effective this product is. The sanitary pad absorbs a lot of water very efficiently. After pouring the water, you can see that I tried to put the paper on top of the pad to check out if it is dry. I am using a small piece of white paper. I just dap it on top and put some pressure on it to check out on the dryness of the pad surface.

Laurier Night Safe Review and tested. ♡♥♡

A video posted by @illyariffin on

laurier night safe

I am very impressed. Like seriously. Nothing. No liquid or what so ever on top of that paper. Good absorption = dryness of the surface. I just have to also mention the cushion is still soft and dry even after the experiment ended. I am very happy when I come across a product that really does and deliver what it claimed. yeay!

Well, don’t just take my word for it, yourself able to do this test at home. You may even compare its effectiveness with your current sanitary pad. I put it to a race with my current one and Laurier Night Safe scored perfectly. Moreover, Laurier Night Safe is easy to wash.
