Zandria’s First Year!

Dec 29, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

In next 14 days it would be Zandria’s first birthday! Decided to write a post to reflect a yearwe had ever since Zandria come into our life. Because you knowlike isshort. Today I am breathing, tomorrow I dont know. Might as well capture the memories we had and document it. It would be nice for Zandria to read it once she grew up and also for us to reflect the time we had together.

Wrote about my pengalaman bersalin before you can check it out here. She was born at Tropicana Hospital the same hospital Sofea was born at. I still remember going into labour room, how nervous it felt and how happy we are as family when we get to finally meet her!


Hi Zandria!! Such a sweet baby. Seriously, she did not gave us as much panda eyes moment compared to her elder sis. Didnt cry out that much, all she did was just baby talk, poop and smile. The first two weeks of her life was spent at Kimporo Postnatal Center. Our whole family stayed there for two weeks and it was the best decision we made. I got to rest and recover, Zandria had the best pampering moment and Sofea even make friend with the nurses. Ofcoz, I wrote about it tooo.. haha.. you can check it out here if you are interested.

Picosure Laser at Signature Clinic |Review|

Signature Clinic Review illy ariffin

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Do you have open pores and dark spots on your skin? If you have combination or oily skin like me then I feel you. Not only we are prone to have acne, open pores is another concern, What a match huh? There are two biggest factor for open pores which is our age and our genetics. As we get older our skin elasticity reduced. For oily skin type, the extra sebum causes build-up and stretches the walls of the pore canal (pore opening). At the end, this constant stretching resulting to large pores. I dont want to let it excalate even further. Despite of my skincare routine, I decided to also seek a profesional and to aid my skin from deep within.

It is not a secret that I have tried many laser treatment before. Taking care of skin is not a one time thing. You can’t your face once then expect it to be clean for a year right? It is a ritual that invlove nurturing. It needs constant care.

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits (Champagne Pop/Hyacinth) | Review |

Dec 26, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Today I would like to share with you my love and hate relationship with this Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits. It is not a secret that Becca came up with highlight to die for. I already have the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter (in Champagne Pop ofcoz) at home, in the travel size and the full size and I have been loving it very much. I actually love them more than hourglass highlighter. So, I was like why do I need more?

I have been wanting to have it for awhile. Swatch it many times at Sephora but didnt make the purchase as I am still hesitating. Still very tempted but then I put it on my low priority list. Then…. suddenly Sephora have this massive halloween sale for 60% if I spent RM900 and above. I am like what?? I can’t control my fingers anymore. It just went clicking. One thing lead to another and here we are talking about Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits on my blog. I am so happy to get it at such a Bargain. Instead of paying RM206 for a unit, I only spent RM82.40. Felt like winning a lottery expecially when I have been aiming to own it for awhile.20171227_133822

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

My husband and I love trying out new flavours and recently we decided to try out WingStop located at The Curve. The restaurant is at ground floor,same row with Johny’s Rocket. Not hard to look for.

NEW Radiance Renewal 28 Day Programme by Jurlique

Dec 20, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Who would not love the idea of achieving radiance looking skin in 28days? I am so intrigured by idea as I come across this NEW Radiance Renewal 28 Day Programme by Jurlique. I have been trying out the product ever since 8 Nov and I am soo excited to share my humble opinion over it.

Do you know that our skin made out of three layers which is the epidermis, the dermis and also the subcutaneous layer. What really happen is that, our skin are designed to renew itself on constant basis. Our dead cells are pushed outwards. While this deads cells flake off, the new cells are being created in the deeper part of our skin.

The new cells that emerged resulting to a radiant and super soft texture. For the cycle to complete it takes around 28days. However, enviromental factors also play a role in this process. Being exposed to the sun, imbalance hormone, negliance to take care off our skin apart from many other factors  will tend to slow down the renewal process.

This is where the NEW Radiance Renewal 28 Day Programme by Jurlique come in very handy!! Before I get to that, let’s take a closer look of the product packaging.

Star Avenue Mall have Giant Supermarket, Secret Recipe, Indoor Playground for Kids, Sushi King, Texas Chicken and we also saw Pos Laju office in the same building. I like the indoor and outdoor concept as the mall too.


Protect your Intellectual Property with MyIPO

Dec 16, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Came up with an idea or product and thinking how you can protect it under the law? Well, I got something very interesting to share with you today. Have you heard about MyIPO before? MyIPO is actually Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia. Where they are the responsible statutory body that took care of the development and management of intellectual properties. If you are wondering MyIPO is one of the goverment agency under KPDNKK.

Being a part time blogger, I think this is very relatable to me as I have a domain name that I think best to protect. Not just that you may also protect the picture you took, your business name, or domain name, your business name, your product name, the music you created, an idea, your company logo even to your product. There are many branches of Intellectual properties that you can protect. Just Basically it is very broad spectrum and best part of all it can be protected under the law.

Do you know how to pronouce MyIPO correctly? /maipo/ yes it is very simple.

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Going vacation does not mean you need to disregard your skin routine. However, I also understand you might worry that your beauty product could be the reason you hit the liquid limit allowed before taking your flight? What if items like your sunblock, some good skincare are not in liquid form? The first moment I come across there product by Shekku, I was actually very happy to see that it comes in such a compact packaging. Perfect for travelling and also everyday use.

Today, I would like to share my humble opinion over these two products. Before we get to that, just to make it clear that both products are imported from Korea and have received the green light from our Ministry of Health and registered under NATIONAL PHARMACEUTICAL REGULATION AGENCY also known as KKM. That’s a big relief, because I need to know if it is safe before testing out on my skin and also share it with you.

How I Feel About Death

White flower with green leaf and red cherries in bloom in Spring, San Sebastián

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

This year is going to end in less that two weeks. I spent sometime talking to my husband about one of the scariest topic recently. We talked about death. Over the years, I went to quite a number of funeral. Family members and friends called by God from time to time. This year, I have experience one of my blogger friend pass away at a young age. On top of that, another blogger friend turn into a single mother with four young children with a blink of an eye after her husband pass away at the work place.

Verthys Paris Enliven Serum and Complex |Review|

Dec 8, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Hope you are doing great today. I just like to share my humble opinion over this new range that I have tried. It is called Verthys Paris Supple which is a serum and also a face cream. It is my first time encounter with this brand. I have tried it for around 3 weeks and quite excited to share with all of you.

The product come in a clinical design feel with yellow and white box while the product container is in white and gold. It gave the impression of a professional care and look promising. If only the container is in frosted glass that would be even better. However, I am not going to dwell over it because it does not really determine if the product is efficient or not.

Pengalaman ke Taman Botani Shah Alam, Bukit Cerakah

Dec 6, 2017



Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Sekarang ni musim cuti sekolah, kalau nak cari tempat menarik bawa anak jalan sambil belajar illy ada tempat nak suggest. Hehe baru ni kami pergi ke Taman Botani Shah Alam yang located di Bukit Cerakah Seksyen 8. Last sekali pergi masa tu dalam3 or 4 tahun lepas masa tu takda anak lagi. Kali ni bawa dua anak, decided untuk tak bawa stroller pakai baby carrier sebab alang – alang nak excercise. Besar tau tempat ni, illy suggest kalau nak datang pakai sport shoe atau pun kasutyang selesa sebab memang akan banyak berjalan.

Kali ni banyak juga nampak perubahan dari last sekali pergi. Paling obvious tempat masuk dia ni dah ada macam pintu gerbang. Dulu ala –ala kayu sekarang wahhh punya lah gah. Parking kena bayar RM3 per entry. Sangat berbaloi sebab memang parking berjam-jam kalau betul tawaf satu tempat ni.


Sebelum pintu masuk tu ada papantanda boleh tengok peta, but dont worry masa bayar masuk nanti pun dia ada provide peta. Illy prefer ambik gambar jer nanti tengok takda membazir kertas. Paperless orang cakap.

Jurlique Facial Treatment | Review |

Dec 4, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I took new year seriously. I tend to prepare myself before it comes. Completed my goal setting in November, bought my planner. I also like to mentally and physically prepare. Final quarter of the year would be focusing on self maintenance and preparation to go into a brand new year. Earlier, I have done my haircut and changed the colour of my hair. Went for a good total body massage. Go to the dentist to do scaling and to polish my teeth. The cherry on top would be a good relaxing facial. Owh boy…. and I really love the facial so very much.

It is not a secret that Jurlique is one of my favourite brand when it comes to natural wonder. Since I need to do my facial decided to try out the NEW Harmonizing Facial Treatment (RM380) and I also did the Firming Eye Treatment (RM140). It was amazing!!


The best part is they are currently having promo 50% off for the NEW Harmonizing Facial Treatment, Instead of RM380 you get to enjoy a blissful facial session at only RM190. Such a steal since they are using premium botanical skincare by Jurlique ofcause.  

Luxury in the Flower Shop

unnamed (1)

There’s nothing quite as beautiful as fresh, gorgeous blooms, and the best florist in Singapore knows exactly how to utilize the power of flowers to make your day better. Not only do they have flowers Singapore has gone crazy over, they tell beautiful stories with their creations, which is what gets you hooked immediately.

When you shop from their flower shop, you feel like royalty. Their luxurious designs make you feel really special. Each grand opening flower stand I saw was a rich, elegant arrangement that makes takes your breath away. Each hand bouquet is impressive in its own way, as they are these packed, gorgeous, lush arrangements, overflowing with beautiful blooms. It’s the flowers you would see in celebrity homes, but they are cheap and affordable and available for you. Besides grand opening flowers Singapore businesses love, you can also grab funeral flowers Singapore also needs, birthday flowers, rose bouquets, flower arrangements and so much more. The list goes on and on, because they have a lot to offer.

Thermomix Malaysia

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I am so excited as I am writing this post. I love household gadgets that make life simpler. As predicted I couldn’t really sleep well after attending an event hosted by Thermomix.

All I know is that it is expensive until I went to the event – I found out it will make cooking experience a breeze.

The event unveiled The World’s First Thermomix Malay Cook Book, written by Kak Suriya Abdullah. During the event, Kak Suriya shared a few easy, healthy and inspiring recipes and cooking presentations and that was how I got to know more and seen with my own eyes of the kind of wonders that a Thermomix can do.

When I first stepped in the Thermomix® Cooking Studio, I saw many beautiful ladies wearing the Thermomix green apron, standing next to a spread of yummy-looking dessert laid out on the table. Every meal on the table was prepared freshly using Thermomix®. I was like, really???

Nov 27, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Sebenarnya kan banyak tempat menarik dan cantik kat dalam negara kita ni. Baru – baru ni illy dan family try pergi naik cruise kat Tasik Putrajaya. Ajak my other family members tapi dorang dah ada program jadi kami jer la pergi anak beranak. Planning memang nak pergi awal pagi sebab tak nak panas. Bawa budak kalau panas nanti dia cepat merengek.

Nak cari tak susah. Korang parking jer depan masjid pink kat putrajaya tu, then pergi belah kiri kat tasik. Mula tu macam confuse juga mana ticketing counter ni. Pastu tengok map, baru paham. Kena turun ke bawah sikit baru jumpa. Satu floor lagi bawah dari cafe putrajaya. Kalau bawa orang tua ada wheelchair boleh naik lift untuk turun. Illy decided tak nak bawa stroller sebab pergerakan macam terbatas. Jadi Johan just pakai baby carrier jer senang citer. Lagi pun naik cruise boat tu nanti tak boleh bawa stroller.

|HONEST REVIEW| Cor Blimey British Fish and Chips (Damansara Uptown)

Nov 21, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

It is not a secret that my little family and I like to try out new cafe and restaurant. Last month we decided to try out this new place that claimed to serve the best British-style Fish & Chips that no one can forget. It is located at Uptown Damansara same row with WonderMilk and Softserve. Not that far from we stay so we went straight after work.

Parking in Uptown is such a B***. However, we are quite lucky to get a spot within the first round. From outside the restaurant look very welcoming and I really like the interior. It gave a British vibe which make sense since they are serving the staple British meal. Cor Blimey British Fish and Chips, is also child friendly as they provide baby chair, not to dark, not to noisy and kid cutleries. Their song selection and the interior transport you to UK. I have been to a place that serve thai food but they turn on a korean k-pop song. Understand that I come for food not music but really?? I like the fact that they have attention to details when it come to songs selections.  Even my daughter enjoyed The Beatles songs played, I mean who wont…

ANTIPODES LIPSTICK | Review + Swatches |

Nov 20, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I have quite good news for those who are into natural lifestyle. You can now have more options when it comes to lipstick Yeay! Around couple of weeks ago, Antipodes New Zealand sent me three units of their Moisture-Boost Natural Lipstick. To be completely honest, this is my first encounter with the brand that was originated all the way from New Zealand by Elizabeth Barbalich.

Did some reading. Yes, I like to know more about the brand because I feel that whenever I choose a brand to work with it also means I support what is their mission and what they believe in. That is why I been trying my best to support or try out brand that aligned with what I stand for.

Happy to find out that Antipodes used certified organic skincare with remaining natural ingredients on top of having 100% biodegradable cardboard from sustainable forest. Also found out that they do support lots of WWF Campaigns including effort to save dolphins to choosing supplier that source ingredients from sustainable palm oils that does not do harm to our ecosystems.

Arayyan Kids Mind Booster and Kiddy Edu PlaySet |Review|


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I can’t believe that Sofea is going to be four years old next year. Which mean she will go into a real pre-school. My husband and I did sent her and the little to like a nursery cum playschool all these while. But it does not involve wearing a uniform, do not have exam and things like that. Next year on Jan, she will start wearing uniform to enter pre-school and I am not sure if we are ready for it.

We did try to teach her as much as we could without giving pressure. Like we would bring her around to see animals face to face at the park, go and explore nature, and we tried to let her order her own meal and we give out little responsibility one at a time, like cleaning up after her own mess.  After all we want her to associate learning by being fun instead of chores. Glad that she does enjoy learning.

Have to be honest, that I am also worried because time is really changing that I don’t want her to go to school and felt left out when it comes to academic. My husband and I actually didn’t really mind about result. All we want is for our child to grow up to be a good person, live a happy life. In matter of fact you don’t need all As to be a good person, have wonderful relationship and to live a happy life.

Like many parents, we also want to make sure that she have a healthy growth rate, in term of mentally and physical growth. So, that she will be able to learn as much in order to survive in this world. Recently we tried this Arayyan Kids Mind Booster.

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Just like to share with you my experience attending MON CHÉRI workshop. Have you heard about this brand? I have wrote a couple of review on MON CHÉRI product before. I like their skincare range a lot. Quite recently, they come up with a full blown range of make up products and to be blunt the only make up product I have tried before is the CC cushion also named as the Petal CC Cover cushion. Which is why I am quite interested to check out the rest.

The seat for the workshop is reserved for those who spend RM350 on MON CHÉRI and for that you will get to attend a make up workshop on top getting goodies worth RM200. The workshop was hosted at their counter in Parkson One Utama and 3 session was conducted at 11am, 2pm and 3pm. I decided to utilise my lunch time and go for it. The perks of having an office that is attached to a shopping mall huh?

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Semenjak dari pergi Nivea Care Run hosted kat Putrajaya haritu kami sekeluarga asyik rasa nak spend time kat sini time weekend. So, haritu ada lalu depan Wetland ni ingatkan macam taman tema air ke apa rupanya tak. Dia lebih pada pada nature, tempat tengok burung, taman main basikal and also tempat jogging. Kami pergi ahad pagi which is just nice sebab pergi pagi tak panas. Kalau dalam pukul 7 atau 8 tu paling sesuai tak terik.

Ada few spot menarik kat dalam Wetland Putrajaya ni sendiri, ada flamingo watching area, ada tempat macam ala-muzium tumbuhan tapi kitorang tak sempat nak visit yang tu lagi next time nak check out yang tu pula. Kali ni kami decide nak berbasikal spend time dengan anak-anak.

Sneak Peak at my DIY 2018 Planner

Nov 8, 2017

illy ariffin diy planner

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

November is usually my busiest time of the year. It is the time where I do all of my coming year planning. There is nothing wrong about doing your planning whenever you like. It is your life anyway. You can do it middle of the year or anytime. I personally like to do my planning in Nov to give myself a head start. I dont like to get all panicky and jump into a new year without any goal or plan. By doing my planning ahead, preparing what is my goal and what are the SOP that needed to achieve it, it gave me a sense of calmness. Knowing that I will enter a new year with a plan and will try my best to get myself in the direction I want to be in. To me life is a journey, and my planner is my map. It lead me to where and who I want to be. There is nothing wrong about not having a plan. I mean, it is your life, if you like to be chillax or adventurous and so with the flow, there is nothing wrong with that. I just find that by having a plan, it keeps me productive and aid me to built a good habit.

illy ariffin diy planner

All you need is a book, some coloured pens and stickers. I like to use hard covered book because it is more durable since I will be using the book religiously within a year. I used to buy like a bulky planner but I found that it is not the best for me. I still prefer like a not so thick book so it is easier to put in my handbag plus it is not as heavy. You can get the pre-printed planner for daily or weekly or even monthly. Depending on your  usage. I prefer to get the one more like a journal as it gave me room to be creative. Currently my planner is a notebook by Duck given by my ex-bestie (hahaha.. im not going to elaborate further, she dont want to kawan me, so its okay). Anyway, for year 2018 I decided to get this glitter journal book from Typo. You can get any book you want actually. I just like this one because it is fancy.

5 Main Reasons Why I Trust Pigeon Newborn Pure Range for my Baby

Nov 7, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

How are you feeling today? Hope everything is great at your end. Today I would like to share with you 5 main reasons why I trust Pigeon Newborn Pure range for my baby. When it comes to my baby skincare, I will try my best to use product that are gentle yet provide the most comfort and care. I mean it is a well-known fact that baby’s skin are delicate. Before I jump into reviewing each product that I used, allow me to share my top main reasons.


Reason 1 : Scientifically proven

Yes, Pigeon invested a lot in making sure their product are back up by science instead of hearsay or assumptions. When they take their product seriously, it gave me some assurance. Scientist behind the brand formulated Natulayer TM which is a trademarked formula. If you are wondering, Natulayer TM able to provide a double layer of protection and moisturization for your baby’s skin. The formulation encourage the stimulation of Vernix. Vernix is a waxy protective moisturizing layer which can be found naturally on newborn babies. While doing so, it also encourage the formation of Ceramide (a moisture-capturing lipids) this will help to hyrated and nourished the skin and resulting to skin to be supple.

Reason 2 : Balanced PH

During the first few weeks of life, a baby's skin has a higher pH of between 6.5 and 5.5. Which is why it is not advisable to use just any kind of soap on your baby skin so it wont disturb the pH. Pigeon Newborn Pure range knows this (ofcoz they are know they are the professional here) and they ensure that the baby skincare range maintain the skin’s protective layer by making sure that the pH level is well balanced.

Sheraton Petaling Jaya Hotel | Honest Review |

Nov 6, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Being adult is not easy, you need to juggle your mental and physical health, relationship with God, relationship with family members, your career, not to mention bills and so on. The list can be long, (in fact I have 12 different chapter on things I need to juggle). It is also very important to take a good care of yourself. Like I mentioned many times before it started with us. By taking a good care of ourself we get to function better and juggle better.

Going for staycation is one of the best way we found to give ourself a break. You dont have to go far to relax. Actually I found myself even more tired whenever I travel abroad since I tend to spend most of my time exploring. Dont get me wrong, I love exploring and learning about new cultures and engage with locals. But when I need a rest, I think staycation fit the best.

If you are looking for option for a staycation, just to chill without the need to travel far. Then why not consider Sheraton Petaling Jaya Hotel. Last weekend my husband and I went for a quick 2 days 1 night stay. Hotel is super new, they officialy open to public less than a month ago.

Sweet Violet & Grapefruit Hydrating Mist Limited Edition by Jurlique | Review |

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Can you believe that it is already november? We are at the final quarter of the year and the next thing we know it is going to be new year all over again. Are you ready for it? Have you start drafting your plan and goal for next year? I always start planning my goal in November just to give myself a head start before the actual new year comes in. One of my goal is to pamper myself as much as I  could. To me, my pampering myself I get to train to appreciate my body and it will result to feeling the best. It is like a dominos effect, when I feel best, I will react better with everyone around me. I get to treat my husband and kids even better. I mean we cant pour if our glass is empty.  People tend to make others feel how they themselves feel, whether it's great or small. So, I need to make sure that I am content in order for me to make others around me feel the same.

Lots of fun at Nivea Care Run 2017

Oct 31, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

My family and I collected another medal and running experience, this time we joined Nivea Care Run. I think I mentioned earlier about this run. You can check out the write up here. My husband and I have been trying our very best to lead a good example for our kids. By joining run and activities like such, we hope that both of them would be more receptive towards adopting a healthy lifestyle. Which is why we decided to bring both of our kids along.

A week before the actual event date, we went to survey the area to see if the pavement is stroller friendly. I tend to bring a baby carrier (for adik) and let Sofea run together with us if the the pavement is bumby. However, during our “recce” session we saw that the road is good. Hence we decided to pack the double stroller so Sofea and adik can just jump on it if they are tired.

We woke up at 5am on that lovely Sunday and start preparing our kids like a ninja. Hahaha.. We try to be as early as possible as we dont want to miss the flag off. When we thought everything is within control………………….. and then, this happened

ASTUTE Clinic, Skincare and Facial Review

Oct 30, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I have always spent my money on make up, but ever since 5 years ago I change my focus and start investing for a good skincare instead. I noticed make up will enhance your look. However, to have the best look it start from a good skin. I dont have a good skin, those who have a porcelain skin you are very blessed! Because of this, I love to try out products that could help me to achieve a flawless, scar free skin that I always dream off.

After trying out many treatment including laser, chemical peeling and you name it lah.. dont know how many skincare I have tried. Couple of week ago, I went to consult Dr Jason from Astute Clinic. Talked to him about my skin history, the numerous skin prcedure/maintenance that I have gone trough and he actually gave a solid point. He told me why not tackle the root cause. As in regardless the number of laser I go for, but if I still have acne issue coming on and off, I will still have to go for treatment all the way. The goal is to have minimum acne, and then resulting to lesser visit for laser treatment.

He told me that I might be having hormonal imbalance also known as PCOS. My sister had it. I remember one of the previous dematologist I visited told me that my acne is due to hormonal imbalance. If you are having acne, I would suggest for you to consult a doctor and find out what is the root cause. As acne happen to many factors, it could be triggered due to food you consume, stress, enviroment factor and many more.

Aquaria KLCC VLog

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Dah nak hujung tahun ni, kalau tengah cari idea mana nak bawa anak pergi jalan then illy suggest pergi aquaria klcc. Lagi pula kalau ada anak yang tengah membesar, kita yang dewasa ni pun seronok ni kan pula budak-budak. Baru ni kami sekeluarga plan bawa anak kami pergi aquaria, sambil jalan sambil tambah ilmu. Macam biasa, illy akan kongsi pengalaman kami sekeluarga mana tau boleh bantu kalau korang pun planning nak pergi next time.

Kami beli ticket online kat wonderfly sebab ada discount. Kalau ikutkan dewasa RM49. Kami dapat harga RM38 banyak juga jimat. Tapi korang boleh search lagi website lain untuk tengok apa promo terbaik boleh compare. Kalau budak bawah 3 tahun free, and kalau warga emas above 60 tahun RM9. Harga RM49 dewasa untuk yang ada mykad. Kalau bawa kawan foreignners harga lain RM69 kalau tak silap illy.

Masa kami pergi tu dah tengah hari dalam pukul 2pm. Illy suggest pergi pagi atau pun weekdays. Sebab kami pergi ahad tengah hari memang waktu kemuncak ramai sangat orang. Better kalau anak kecik pergi time hari bekerja jadi less crowd. Tenang sikit.

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Today, I would like to share with you about the best toothpaste money could ever buy (in my opinion). I actually bought this MARVIS TOOTHPASTE couple of weeks ago because my friend Yuki was telling me, how good it is and she convinced me that I wont go back to the usual toothpaste once I tried it out. Gosh she have never been so true. LOL.. Hence, this write up came up. After all, I like to write and share about products that I personally tried and believe in.

Got it from KENS Apothecary, was walking around that day after my lunch outing with Yuki so we drop by at the shop. It is just beside Sephora at One Utama, if you are wondering. Went in the shop, check out the range. It come in two size, the small once 25ml mostlikely for travel usage and the 75ml the full size version.

Yuki had the full version. I dont want to go all in and pay nearly 3 digits for a full size toothpaste that I wont know if I am going to like or not. They also have like a gift sets. 3 units of the 25ml tube for RM55 or the one I got which is 7 units for RM87. Yuki suggested for me to get 3 tubes but after doing a rough calculation, might as well I add another rm30 to get 7 units. I make more sense to me. Sales rep was actually helpful she let us check out the smell of the samples and since I have low will power to finer things in life. I took it. Told her to wrap it.

Family Trip ke Terengganu

Oct 12, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

How are you? Okay tak? Harap sihat and happy. Kenapa tulis sihat and happy? Yer la kalau sihat tapi jiwa kacau buat apa kan? haha.. Kali ni illy nak share pengalaman kami sekeluarga pergi jalan ke Terengganu. Sebenarnya trip ni sempena pergi kenduri pak cu illy punya anak sulung kenduri kahwin. Sambil tu kami jalan-jalan bawa anak makan angin sambil spend time dengan sedara mara. Dah lama tak pergi Terengganu sebenarnya, last sekali 6 tahun lepas. Banyak juga perubahan.

Kami bertolak malam, then singgah umah mak illy tidur pastu breakfast before gerak ke Terengganu. Thank you mak masakan kami nasi lemak dan lauk udang petai. Sedap. Sengaja pilih gerak malam, yer la jalan dengan budak ni bukan menda senang lagi pula roadtrip. Kalau gerak malam mainly dorang tidur jer dalam kereta. Kurang lah huru hara hahaha tengok tu ada teknik.

Esok pagi tu gerak, sampai kat RnR Maran singgah makan.Jumpa family belah ayah illy pula kat situ. Yes, I come from broken family. But I prefer to call it BIG family instead of broken. Such a negative word when it should not be that way. Jodoh, ajal, rezeki adalah ketentuan Tuhan and siapa lah kita nak question kan? Since my parents divorce masa i and my bro masih kecik, then have their own family, I have more mum and dad hahaha because of that I ada adik beradik ada set mak, set ayah. Dont you think that is BIG?

Ageless by Turning Back Time with Olay

Oct 9, 2017


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I am pretty convinced that you have heard about Olay. Well, it have been around since forever. In fact, it was introduced since 1952.  After being in the market for around 65 years, it says a lot about the brand. Around couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend and event by Olay to understand further about the technology as well as what Olay offer to its users.

Scientist found out that while some are blessed with good genes, it does not mean that the rest cant achieved the same ageless effect. Basically, you dont need good genes to have younger looking skin. What matter the most is how you nurture or treat your skin.

Which is why Olay re-formulate their anti-aging collection which is the Regenerist (red tube), White Radiance (white tube) and Total Effects (gold and black tube). All of the range goes trough all kind of scientific test before they released it out to market. With all of the scientifically proven ingridients that can help you achieve younger looking skins after using it daily for 28 days.
