New Sky Dining Spot in KL: Roofino KL

Here's my personal opinion about Roofino KL,
I find the view was spectacular, I like how its a glasshouse concept, so when you dine in the restaurant, you can look out into the city. It has 2 sections, restaurant and the bar. The bar is like a social club, where you can mingle around with your peer, not too much of the clubbing type. The food was good but it definitely can be improved. My favourite was probably the lamb and the sea bass. Others was just alright, i'll give a 6/10. However, the view, i'll give a 9.5/10. hahahah. Well, it's because I only can see half of the twin tower, my OCD was acting up. Overall, it was an amazing night with my girlfriends and some of the most influential people in KL. I totally recommend you guys to try out this new place and it's effective on the 28th of October 2016.

Travel: 5 Places To Visit in Taipei

After been delaying so much on my Taiwan post, and blogging because I was rather more active on youtube, I thought I should pen down some thoughts on my not very recent visit to Taipei. I guess it's because I'm missing Taipei a little too much and also writing down my thoughts while getting lost in them. And also, I took a lot of really nice photos but never had the chance to show it off hahaha.

I loved taiwan. I must say, I had one of the best feeling I had in many years, able to step out of the country and travel alone (sort of, until my friend decided to join me for few days) but still can count as solo right?

Anyways back to my topic, here's the 5 Top Travel Places that you must visit in Taipei.

1. Ximending

I loved everything about Ximending, it has everything there. The food, the fashion stores, the beauty stores and everything. Basically, if you wanna shop, this is definitely a place to go. It's easy to go by just train. At night, it will be super lively because everyone is going to be there, from street performers and everything else!

2. Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall

If you're a fan of historic place, this is definitely a place to visit. Ofcourse you'll learn a little bit more about history of taiwan, but it's also a great place to take an instagram worthy photos! hahha!

2. Jiufen 
I loved everything about Jiufen. Jiufen is like a little village with artsy surrounding and all the good food. It's pretty far from taipei city, it took us around 45 mins to get to Jiufen. But it's totally worth it. I'll definitely write a separate post for Jiufen.

3. Hidden Bar in Taipei (Ounce)

well, this place is really hidden. I wouldn't know about this place until one of my friend told me about this bar. It's pretty hard to find. I know Taipei is easy to get around with just subways or trains, but you will need abit of walking or taxi to get to this bar. What I loved about this bar is that, the bartender customised your drinks. You just tell him what you prefer for example (fruity or sweet or sour) basically your choice of taste, he'll make a perfect one for you! Note that, it's definitely not cheap.

4. Huashan 1914 Creative Park

This definitely one of my favourite visits in Taipei. I guess Taipei is known for their arts and crafts, everywhere I go in Taipei is definitely related to arts. Huashan 1914 creative park is definitely a must go, i will also write a separate post for this. Because it's soooooo beautiful i have tonnes of pictures to show you guys!

5.  Taipei Night Markets

Last but not least, ofcourse their night markets. Your visit to Taiwan is not complete if u don't visit some of their famous night markets like Shilin or Raohe. Super good food, it's okay if you get fat in Taiwan because their food is gooooooood. 

well, if you haven't see my youtube video for taiwan. Go watch and subscribe ok!

Review: Mary Kay Gel Semi-matte Lipstick & Contest

I'm never really a fan of direct selling product range and never thought of buying them, but when I was told that Mary Kay product as amazing, I said to myself, :" well lets give it a try." So I did. So I was given the chance to try the new lipsticks range from Mary Kay, and hell yes I'm so up for it. I love everything about lipsticks!

So here's are the important facts of these lipsticks; 

Gel Formula
The lipsticks is so lightweight that it can be applied on easily, leaving your lips feeling delicate and supple. Additionally, it's detailed to give a delicate center impact, with optical diffusers included to dissipate light and obscure the presence of minor flaws. 

Semi-Matte Finish
Advanced "Cushion Matrix Technology" uses ultrafine silica microspheres to install and hold shading on the surface of the lip. Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick contains fixings, for example, sunflower oil and jojoba esters, to condition lips. Shades are processed for 24 hours for a ultrafine, smooth shading.

Bold Colours 
Cutting edge and cool, these eight new hues are the tones you adore and the shades of this season — and the following. Reserved You, Rich Truffle, Mauve Moment, Powerful Pink, Always Apricot, Poppy Please, Crushed Berry and Midnight Red match both the patterns existing apart from everything else and your storage room works of art! and, who doesn't love bold colours....?
Midnight Red, Powerful Pink, Midnight Red, Crushed Berry 

The lipsticks felt amazing on me, and it was applied so smoothly without the hassle of trying to apply nicely. It also super moisturising as I have dry lips, I don't have to worry about my lips looking chapped. I like how the lipsticks are so pigmented! You applied once and you immediately can see the beautiful colours of each lipsticks. Not only that, it stays quite long on my lips and I don't have to reapply again after being out for few hours. However, it is definitely transferable from your lips to your glass when you drink, so you may need to do some retouch after eating or drinking. I also love the packaging, it's very simple and look very elegant at the same time. My favs of all lipstick is definitely Poppy Please and Midnight Red, been wearing the same shade for the past few weeks! Overall, I'll give these lipsticks a rate of 8/10 ! Definitely a worth to try!

To The Girl Who Got Her Heart Broken

I know my blog has been dead for quite sometime and I'm guilty of that, because I've been dealing with something personal. I think it's very hard for me to pour out things like this publicly because as you know I am the person who try to spread as much positivity especially online, but that's not the case this time round. But, no worries I'm definitely okay now. I'm just telling u guys something personal and my side of the story and a little open letter to my friends that got cheated on. I totally feel you and I was in your shoes not too long ago ( a year ago lol).

I never really talk about anything personal especially on my blog or youtube but there are somethings that I have been holding on for quite sometime. As most of you are my followers on instagram, you would know that I was very open with my relationship. I even filmed a "relationship goals" video on youtube where I travelled to the states to see someone. I was happy, very happy. In fact, I think I was in cloud 9. We've been together for 3 years, and we made promise to each other no matter how hard things go, we will strive the hardest to work on it, despite the difficulties we were having especially when we were on long  distance relationship. I was content, happy and i thought I was in a mature relationship. We were told we were one of the cutest couple they've seen, but that's not the case isn't it. I was so comfortable with him, he was a best friend to me and someone I could rely on. He was someone that I can tell my darkest secret to and he was the only one who saw my most vulnerable side. I have never opened up to anyone like how I did to him. And I thought:" wow, i never knew love felt this way" i have always thought that he loved me more than I did, but that's not the case, In fact, i was more in love than he ever did, and whatever he told me was merely just talks. Was I not good enough for him to stay, to stay loyal? Was I not beautiful enough as time goes by? or was I a bore to him that he needs to find another girl to satisfy his needs for loneliness? 

We broke up few times. We were moving on, he had a new girlfriend, while I trying to focus on career and finding myself. Even when he was with that girlfriend of his, he still looks for me and find comfort from me, I thought I was doing him a favour and I thought that it's good that he still looks for me because I did not want to lose him completely, but little did I know, it's only draining my soul. As time passes, he came back, and he tries hard to get me back. Long story short, he cheated on her to get me back and I thought it was love. He said all the things I wanted to hear, and I fell back into his trap. We made good memories together when he was here, and I thought we could make it again, but part of me thinks that it's not gonna work, because I still couldn't trust him, and my insecurity went crazy, I tried so hard to be better than her, so he won't leave me again, I knew it was't healthy. He went back to the states, we made promise that we try to make it work. As time goes by, he gave up again and little did I know he's back with that girlfriend of his. I knew I deserved better than going back to him but I was naive, and I was fooled. I felt very dumb and I felt like I wasted my time. I thought I could change him, but I guess cheater will always be a cheater. Don't get me wrong, he does have his good traits.

When you got cheated, you felt like your world just crumbles and there's nothing else that can save you from your misery. You will miss him and you will beg for his love and you will try to change him. You made up your mind to have future with him, and now you will to rewrite your future. You ego gets hurt and you start wondering and questioning yourself that were you not good enough? 

The truth is girl, you will heal, it takes time, but you will one day tell yourself that you made it. You may think you were not good enough, but the truth is, he's not good enough for you. He was so overwhelmed by how amazing you are how strong u are that he couldn't handle you. You deserve someone that truly loves you and embrace your every flaw.  Of course, the hardest part was letting the person you loved go, and you being cheated doesn't mean you will entirely just not care about them, sometimes you do, but life goes on, after all, he was once part of your life and it's hard to just not care. But, you know what, one day, you even forget about his existence. You'll feel hurt, broken and you have trust issues. You couldn't trust the next guy that come after you, you start questioning every moves, every flirty text any guy sent to you. Don't let your past relationship taint your future relationship. One day, you will wake up right next to the person you love whom you're gonna marry and thank all the douchebags that broke your heart and lead you to marry the man you're gonna share your life with. One day, you'll see that all those guys that broke your heart don't matter at all and you thank them so much for giving you a harsh life lessons that made you a stronger person. All I can say is, if you're finally out of the relationship of the guy that cheated on you, kudos to you girl. He doesn't deserve your pure love, he doesn't deserve any part of you. If he chose lust over love, one day, he'll come back running after you and wished he treated you better, but of course you know better that he was nothing but a petty soul. Girl, if you found someone that loves you so much and treat you the way you should be treated, let him in. I know you don't wanna be heart broken again, but hey that's part of life isn't it? We are all human, and we need to feel hurt to feel alive, it sucks i know but it is how it is. Who knows, the next guy that you let him into your life, is the guy that you're gonna marry. Dear broken hearted girls, you deserve better and there someone out there will grow old with you and cherish you, guide you and motivate you everyday to get through life. Now, wipe off your tears, put your red lipsticks on, eat more vegetables, do more squats and don't let petty boys bring you down. You're a strong independent woman and you know that! 

That's it for now.

Review: Wongamania Banana Economy Board Game

Hey guysssss,

it's been awhile, so basically, a few weeks ago I attended this Wongamania's Board Game Launch event in Borders. I have always loveee playing board games since i was a toddler and honestly, I'm pretty excited to tell you guys more about Wongamania!

Wongamania is definitely not your typical board games, it's definitely a game that you can play and have fun with your friends and it also teaches you how to handle your financial plan. Pretty cool right? :D

Before you actually dive into the game, you first have to know the type of cards that we are gonna use during the game! These are different type of opportunity cards that you can use during the game, and each card has its own pros and cons depending on the timeline of the economic condition of the game as well. On the card, there are some description for you to have better understanding of the card.

Of course, this is the board that determines your luck of the game. It decides the economic condition of the game. It has 4 stages of economic cycles namely, Recovery, Growth, Stagnant and Recession. The board also shows market price, which determine the amount of Wongas that is needed to purchase Stock & Property cards in certain economic timeline. Also, the Profit Grid that determines the amount of Wongas earned for each asset owned by each player.

Basically during the game, each player will get 3 Wonga cards that resemble your money and also 4 Opportunity cards at the start of the game. These opportunity cards are basically the one that decides the fate of your game. These cards can both be useful and a threat depending on the economic condition timeline of your game (which I will explain further more later). So depending on the economic condition, you will need to know when to buy or let go of your assets such as properties or stocks to minimize the risk of you going broke.

There's also bank cards, incident cards and trust fund.

Bank card is basically a card where you keep your Wongas safe. Incident cards are cards where you can sabotage other player and make them more difficult to win the game. For example the baby card, the player will need to pay certain amount of Wongas for a period of time every turn to support the baby.

Last but not least the trust fund card; Trust Fund card is the card that determines the winner. In order to win the game you will need to have 3 Trust Fund. Each Trust Fund cost around 8 wongas!

Honestly, I personally really like this game. I mean it's definitely not a kids' game and it's definitely something that teenagers and young adults should play. Not just for the sake of leisure, but to gain abit of understanding how the economy works. After all, we all do need money to survive.

3rd Generation Laneige Bb Cushion

Laneige BB Cushion is probably my favourite BB Cushion of all time. Do you know that Laneige BB cushion is the First ever cushion that went global in 2012? Yes, that's how good the bb cushion is. This year, Laneige came up with the 3rd Generation BB cushions, whitening & pore control BB cushion.

One of the highlight is that, Laneige has changed the cushion pattern design,  The 3D Skin Fit allows us to pick up the desired amount of the product easily and evenly with the puff. No matter how much u press unto the the cushion, the 3D Skin Fit will make the product spread evenly and we will able to apply on our face effortlessly and seamlessly, achieving the transparent makeup look.

I was given 2 different BB Cushion to try;

1. BB CUSHION_ Whitening

The BB Cushion Whiting has the Dual Whitening Technology to achieve bright and clean skin from inside out! It also has UV protection with SPF50++, keeping your skin safe from the harmful UV rays. What's more awesome is that, it is totally Water Resistant. So it will keep the beautiful dewy effect throughout the day even though you sweat a lot. Perfect for people that work out and still wanna look good haha!

2. BB CUSHION_ Pore Control

This Bb cushion Pore Control has the Two-step oil control system that controls excess sebum, so you will still look super fresh and not washed out the entire day!
Step 1:  Selective Oil Balancing Powder
It function to absorb only excess oil while still manage to balance our skin moisture level, the powder still help to keep your skin matte and fresh without drying out your skin,

Step 2: Pore Minisizing Technology

This technology helps to minimise the size of your pore, preventing excess sebum secretion! So you will look extra fresh even though you'll be working your butt off and makes you sweat the entire day. It also has Blurring effect, where the BB Cushion contains blurring layer formed by soft powder, function to cover the imperfections on your face such as dull skin and uneven skin tone! Just like you're basically editing your face in real life, not in pictures hahahaa. It also contains UV protection and it is also water resistant. It also gives a semi matte finish!

I personally really love the BB Cushion Pore Control because I like how it gives a soft matte finish keeping my skin less oily and still keeping it hydrated as well. I also really love how it still stay fresh even after I work out. Yes, sometime I put on makeup and work out lol. And I really like the idea of the 3D skin fit, now i dont have to worry so much about putting out too much product! Also can I tell you guys the packaging is soooooo beautiful!

During the launch of 3rd Generation Laneige BB Cushion
