The Waterfront @ Desa ParkCity has always been well-known for hosting most of the fun filled festivals and bazaars and something that really caught my attention this time is definitely something to do with.. food!! Yes, you caught me right there; food is always one of my happy pill. 😄

Just yesterday, I was at the Food Festival & Bazaar happening from 17-19 August (11am - 10pm). I was worried that I might not be able to make it in the morning as it was raining heavily but I'm glad the rain stopped slightly after 11am. In a way, it made the weather really cooling at the bazaar and haze gone too! 💕 The weather can't be more perfect for an outdoor stroll, don't you think?

// The Waterfront @ Desa Parkcity //

// Food Festival & Bazaar Entrance //

This is actually my first time at a bazaar held at The Waterfront @ Desa Parkcity. The bazaar was held at the parking area of the front entrance while the parking area behind the building is set available for patrons parking. Apparently, there might be some difficulty getting parking in the late evening, therefore, I would advice to attend early for any events or bazaar held here.

The first thing and the most thing I notice at the bazaar is actually this Boost App. They have a strong marketing game and I have been seeing them everywhere. Over here at the bazaar, they have a big booth which will assist you with the installation of the app which will then pre-load the app with a RM5 credit for your use at the stalls in the bazaar. I notice that if not all, most of the stalls accept payments made with the Boost app. There are also many on-going promotions when you use the app at the bazaar. So do make sure to head your way to the booth to install your Boost app or ask assistance from those in Boost red tee walking around the bazaar. 

// Babarittos Food Truck //

// Vietnam Grill Honey Chicken Wing + Char Kuey Teow //

// Nasi Putih Matrock Ayam Goreng Kunyit //

The place look quite small at first but I'm amazed that there are actually about 50 unique lifestyle bazaar, food stalls and food trucks!! There are so many choices of food, I can't decide which one to choose for breakfast! I was torn between burgers, western food, takoyaki, ice blended, grilled chicken wings among others. As you all know, our stomach can only fit so much. Hence, I have to forgo most and just get what I'm craving for the most! Guess what I end up with? Scroll down to know the answer!

// Western King Cafe //

 // Me with their Lamb Signature Barbarittos & Lamb Quesadillas //

Tadaa! Yes, it's Mexican food! Mexican is probably one of my favourite type of western food. They are always really flavourful with lots of cheese and sauce. 💓 Can you see what is that I'm holding in my hands? It's the Lamb Quesadilla (RM15) on the left and the roll of Lamb Barbarittos (RM20) on the right! All lamb because I am always on the look out for really good lamb dishes! It's scarce, don't you agree? Therefore, let me know if you have any place in mind that serves good lamb!

// Let me have my Lamb Quesadilla first //

// Now my Lamb Barbaritto //

Verdict; I would rate them 3/5. I was actually looking forward to the Lamb Barbaritto but the Lamb Quesadilla won me over with a more tender pulled lamb meat with melted cheese in between while the lamb chunks in the Barbaritto tend to be more firm. Nevertheless. do give them a try if you are craving for Mexican dishes! 

// Fashion Stalls //

// Get some accessories maybe //

Besides food, there are also many interesting fashion stalls selling nice clothings. I wish I had more time to go through them and get some new pieces but I only had some brief moments to browse through. There was a stall with display of pretty earrings of different style with buy 1 free 1 promotion while there's bargain at another stall selling items from as low as RM1 per piece

// Children Play //
// Children Giant Slides //

It was a surprise to notice that they have a children game section with giant slide floats and jumping ground too. This brings back nostalgic memories when I was young back then and I enjoyed myself the most with the slides at parks. However, as the weather these days are too hot, it is advisable for parents to keep their kids hydrated especially when they will be actively sweating in this playground.

// Oyster Mee Suah //

// Enjoying my Oyster Mee Suah //

Good food should not be missed and for the second round, I am having this Oyster Mee Suah (RM8) which is one of my favourite Taiwanese delicacy. I would give this bowl of noodle a 3.5/5. The broth is pretty rich in flavour. If only the noodle is a little softer than it would be really good! Yums!

It's not in the pictures but there were many ice-cream stalls and cold drinks which is a life savour in this hot weather. Too bad my throat is not feeling well. Therefore, I have to give it a skip but you can always check out the stalls which you have missed in my video insta post which I have shared right below! *Don't forget to follow my instagram account for more lifestyle postings! 😚

Check out on my bazaar video here:

// Waso Shisheido Booth //

Lastly, just before I made a move, I'm glad to drop by the cute and pretty Waso Shiseido booth where they are giving out free mask samples! Hey, they come just in time to repair and rejuvenate our skin after being under the scorching hot sun for so long! Therefore, don't forget to drop by! 💕

I was born in KL and have been a KL lass since then. It might sound great to many people, to grow up in KL but I can tell that city people are envious of the clean and fresh air which we do not have privilege towards. Growing up in the city, I am always surrounded with air pollution which is one of the single most toxic substance for the skin

Polluted air contains free radicals which stress and damages the skin leading to dull and tired looking facade. Women who's life is surrounded by polluted air need to take extra care of their skin because skin exposed to free radicals will get wrinkles, dryness and skin damages more easily.

It was with this concern that Pure Beauty introduces a new skin care range to the market; the new Illuminating Urban Shield Skin Care range which is P)araben-free, Lanolin-free, Alcohol-free and most importantly, is dermatologically tested. This new range is created based on their 4Ps philosophy of Intensive Brightening Power;
  • Preparation of using the willow bark extracts to enhance healthy skin
  • Preservation where Neurolight derived from the certified Natural Star Lily decreases dark spots.
  • Protection where Ceramide 123 strenghtens the skin barrier, shielding from harmful elements.
  • Prevention of the exposure to pollution with EPS White which helps to reduce dark spots.

Pure Beauty's Illuminating Urban Shield skin care range is formulated with the latest technology to fight against skin problems caused by free radicals found in polluted air. The formulation creates a protection layer that helps to reduce effects of dirts and dusts on the skin while enriching the skin's natural glow and lightening dark spots.

During the launch, we get to witness and learn some tips on how to maximize the benefits of Pure Beauty Illuminating Urban Shield Skin Care application and also learn the choice of products we should choose to counter the problem of our skin condition. 

Products available in the Pure Beauty Illuminating Urban Shield Skin Care range are;
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Serum (RM59.90) - reduces dark spots and even out skin tone while repairing damaged skin and defends against pollutants.
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Capsule Essence (RM69.90) - helps to reduce dark spots, brings out natural shine, diminish uneven skin tone and illuminates skin for a smoother, brighter look.
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Water Gel (RM55.90) - hydrates and moisturizes skin, keeping it fresh and clear.
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream (RM59.90) - keep skin raidnat white and preserves against environmental agressors.
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Sun Protector SPF 50+ PA++++ (RM49.90) - provide sun screen protection from exposure to UV rays.

During the event, we also get to test the full range of products and also bring home a set of Pure Beauty Illuminating Urban Shield Skin Care range for further trying and testing. After a quick test, here's my verdict of my thoughts for these products;
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Capsule Essence (RM69.90) - this is probably my star product from the range. I like the popping white capsules which contains all the goodness to help me reduce dark spots and even up my skin tone. The essence feel very hydrating and is very lightweight. It absorbs easily just within a few dab onto the skin.
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream (RM59.90) - as my skin get oily easily, I just tried on a very light layer of application as overnight mask. Surprisingly, it does not feel overly moisturizing the next day but soft and supple.  
  • Illuminating Urban Shield Sun Protector SPF 50+ PA++++ (RM49.90) - the texture is light and smooth. It feels really comfortable after application as it does not leave any greasy or sticky residue after that. 

This range of products is said to be suitable to all skin types and I believe so as the products feels really comfortable during the first day of my tryout on my dry and oily combination skin which is prone to acnes and inflammation. Even Cik Shazreeyana Shukri, a well-known make-up artist who has sensitive skin gave praised to the Pure Beauty Illuminating Urban Shield Skin Care range after trying it out for 3 weeks with glowing effects.

Therefore, if you're a girl living in this concrete urban jungle surrounded by the toxicity of air pollution, I urge you to try out this range of products which cater specifically to fight against free radicals and repair damaged skin. This range can be found solely at the Watsons stores in Malaysia.
