      Barbie® partners with Fashion Designer Kittie Yiyi and Fashion Stylist Min Luna in its You Can Be A Designer Competition

      Six aspiring fashion-forward kids win mentorship with Kittie Yiyi and Min Luna

      The winning designs were made into reality by Kittie Yiyi


Petaling Jaya, 28 July 2021 - It was a dream come true for the six young winners of the Barbie® You Can Be A Designer Fashion Reinvention Competition. Not only did they win a once-in-a-lifetime mentorship opportunity to learn from Fashion Designer, Kittie Yiyi, and Fashion Stylist, Min Luna, their original designs were made reality and brought to life by Kittie Yiyi for both our winners and their Barbie® dolls.


The competition was open for submissions from 30 April 2021 to 7June 2021. 85 entries from across Malaysia were submitted in two age categories: Category A (5-8 years old) and Category B (9-12 years old). The young hopefuls submitted a range of creative designs all conceived to WOW the judges and showcase their interests and personalities. The Top 20 entries were shortlisted for the Virtual Presentation, where the designers had the opportunity to present their designs to the judging panel composed of Kittie Yiyi, Min Luna, and Elaine Lim, Brand Manager of Mattel Continental Asia.


“It was so wonderful to meet the finalists at the Virtual Presentation and get a peek into their creative process,” said fashion designer, Kittie Yiyi. “I was inspired to see girls as young as 5 years old getting excited about fashion design. It brought back so many memories of when I was little and would sew clothes for my Barbie® dolls. It’s been such a joy to be a part of the journeys that these little designers are taking.”


Mindful Muslim App - Great App for Muslim Family


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone! 

Today, I would like to share about Mindful Muslim App. Have you heard about this app? I was introduced by my blogger peer Ruby and I think it is an app that is not only for adults but also great for the whole family. Being a mum of two daughters, I wanted my kids to have as much exposure and knowledge from Quran. But as you can tell, I am not the most religious hence I am not the best person to teach them. 

Being in the pandemic, the best I can do is to engage an online tutor to teach them iqra. I tried my best to recite verses and doa, so they could replicate. Like doa before we eat, before going to sleep, and such. However, I don't have the knowledge capacity to teach them beyond that.

Post Covid Travel Thoughts

Apr 19, 2021


During MCO, we were thinking like we went to quite number of places and it evolves around nature. What about city life? I know we are currently staying in KL, but to experience other city, being in a place that is not familiar with us somehow intrigued me. Not far from home, easily accessible (after MCO is over of course), good food, why not Singapore? Plus its near, can drive down.

Personally I’ve been to Singapore twice on company trip. Its quite short and I didn’t really get to explore the city as my work itinerary is pack.  It would be nice to visit Singpore once again at my own pace. Travelling by public transport like trains will be awesome. I remember our trip to Hanoi. We walked the whole Hanoi city. Total walking distance was 14km. Sofea made it. I think it is now time for Zandria to embrace the challenge maybe?


Of course, when talking about trip, it must evolve around food right? Who doesn’t? Haha. Food is our favourite pastime. There are few places under our radar. The list is growing I can assure you.  We are looking forward to explore food in countless food courts in SG and see what other things might lead us to. Already imagining some seafood, Murtabak Singapore and Sup Tulang Merah. Yummeehh 😋

So what is left is accommodation (read: good hotel). Good hotel with a good price is a gold mine. Especially when you are travelling with kids, it will be very helpful to the for parents to stay patient during the whole trip. Kids (and parents) are hungry and tired and tends to be moody. Imagine getting back to the hotel room after exploring the city. Kids are happy to relax and watch cartoon on tv. Mom get to spend her me time in the bathtub (with bath bomb is a bonus) and dad get to chill with a cup of coffee enjoying the room view. Perfecto

Please take it seriously when I say - Always read review. Don’t simply book a hotel without checking out the review. Remember my experience at the spooky hotel in Phuket? Don’t repeat my mistake ok? Haha

We found few options for hotel in Singapore. Quality wise, it is generally good. You can find your best place according to budget, view, or accessibility to public transport and makan place. Marina Bay Sands is on top of our list. I saw many pictures on IG, so I also want loh. I would like to visit few friends that I know who currently working in Singpore. I would be nice to visit and catch up with them over a meal.

No final decision is made yet on which hotel we will be staying at. Rest assured that I will share the experience here. Hope it helps if you are looking for travelling to Singapore. Praying that the situation gets better so we all can continue to cross off our travel bucket list.

Stay safe and take care 😊 Also, I will do my best to share more experience in my blog hopefully it helps you to plan your own trip in the future.

illy ariffin nippon paint

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone! 

What a time to be living in right? I am always amazed by the human ability to adapt and the innovation that we came up with. Well, today I would like to share with you about paint that can help to mitigate the growth of bacteria and viruses such as as the hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), influenza A (H1N1), Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, in addition to the human coronavirus (strain 229E), when in contact with the paint film.

The Nippon Paint VirusGuard was tested against the Human Coronavirus, ATCC VR-740, strain 229E by Analytical Lab Group earlier this year. The VirusGuard demonstrated a 99.9% reduction in viral titer upon contact of the virus on the paint film. The human coronavirus (strain 229E) is the first coronavirus strain identified in the family of viruses, linked to common cold symptoms and respiratory tract infections. Amazing right? 

First, I would like to thank everyone that works hard behind the scene ensuring everything goes smoothly the other day. It is all about the details, I noticed that each floor have an usher and the strict hygiene measure. Everyone is doing their very best to ensure SOP is being followed. Highly appreciated.

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser - Review - 3 Step Skincare Regime

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser - Review - 3 Step Skincare Regime

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone! 

Hope things are great at your end. Today, I would like to share with you a review of this skincare range that I am trying out. I am sure you might have heard about Cetaphil before or you have been recommended by dermatologists before. To be honest, this is my first time trying out the brand and I am impressed. 

I realized that my skin type changes depending on the environment that I am exposed to. If I am spending the whole day in an air-conditioned room then my skin tends to be dry. While when I am outside under the sun my skin keep producing sebum and makes it oily. Regardless of the environment, it doesn't mean I have to be rough on my skin.
