Love them walls, don't you? Upon entering the cafe, it gives me a very promising sight! Everything looks so proper like as if they are definitely going to serve good food and good coffee.

Why? Coz everything just looks so right and proper. Also, the place is definitely pretty full house at the time I arrive. Students with lappies yes but there are also other group of customers of families, friends and etc.. So, yea, it's not just filled up with students and lappies. :)

Browsing through their menu, there are quite some choices I could not decide on. Quite spoiled on choices of good food! Bf finally decide on The Breakfast Platter and his usual Long Black (RM8).

The Breakfast Platter (RM23) consist of chicken bratwurst, beef brisket strips, toast, eggs, sauteed mushroom & tomatoes, hashbrown and salad.

Very much how I like breakfast platter to be. Get to taste a bit of everything especially the sausage and also ham. Most of the time, breakfast options would force you to choose between sausage or ham. Here, you get the best of both worlds! Pretty well balanced with salad and sauteed mushroom too. A satisfying breakfast platter indeed.

As for mine, I ordered this yummilicious and super appetizing looking thing! Not a fan of raw and smoked salmons but I suddenly have cravings for them! Haha.. I love salmons!

Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta (RM19) - spaghetti, smoked salmon, creamy sauce, poached egg! Love smoked salmon because it's not really raw, just half. Love almost everything with poached eggs because half cooked eggs are yummy! Mix them all up and they will make your tastebuds dance!

It gives a nice meal but portion for me is a little too much! Almost could not finish my food but the portion would be fine and right for guys.

Total damage to the pocket: RM53.00 but is worth it for a satisfying meal and great environment! Check out the menu to get a rough idea of what they serve.. Long list of drinks and they do serve sweet treats with some sides choices as well.

I've just got my hands on some makeup removers from one of the currently most raved about brand, Bifesta! I'm holding the Bifesta ENRICH Cleaning Lotion for dry skin on the left side and Bifesta Moist Water-Based Makeup Remover Cotton Wipes for normal and dry skin on the right. 

Today, I'll be sharing about the Bifesta Moist Water-Based Makeup Remover Cotton Wipes for normal and dry skin first because I some how fancy cotton wipes more! I'll tell you why as we go along.

I have combination of dry and oily skin, oily due to being too dry. So this range for normal and dry skin is good for me to try on~

This fat soft pack contains an odd number of 46 pieces of cotton wipes inside. Removed the plastic packaging and we have this soft pack with a hard plastic lid on top. Every new pack is sealed with a ring opener, much like those on soft drink cans.. (irrelevant but suddenly it makes me crave for soft drink! >.<)

Once you remover the ring seal, you just need to remove them likes pieces of tissue. Just flap back the cover to seal the soft pack to preserve the moisture inside. As you use, you get a flatter soft pack and I like how it saves space like that. I personally would not keep this big pack in my bag but once it has flatten a lot, I can easily slip it in my bag :)

Here's my tired look at the end of the day. 

Usually, one would thought that we should just take the wet wipe and start wiping our face all over including the eye area. The right way to remove eye makeups is actually placing the wet wipe on top for about 5~10 seconds before wiping it off. This helps to dissolve the makeup and hence cleaning them off thoroughly. Gently wipe off the mascara and eyeliner if there is any residue as these could be harder to remove.

A comparison of the cleaned face on the left and still with makeup on on the right side. You can see that the cleaning is quite thorough. In fact, the wet wipes tones and moisturizes your skin as you wipe. Hence, there's actually no need for double cleansing! It is said that I will be able to apply on other skin care products right away without any rinsing!

As you wipe, you might feel that the liquid will leave a sticky texture on your skin. Once you let it dry for it bit, there is actually no stickiness. In fact, it feels a little supple too! <3 For those who feel that it does not feel clean enough without additional cleansing, you can just rinse it with water so that the moisturizer is not washed off.

One sheet is all I need for a thorough cleaning! Amazing how it is said to be able to remove sunblock as well! We all know how oily sunblock can be really stubborn on our skin and definitely need double cleansing to remove them!

I like the soft fiber of the cleaning sheet as it doesn't feel rough on my skin at all! Feels really gentle! It might smell a little alcoholic but it is fragrance free, colarant free and oil free! Less unwanted nor needed chemicals is good news! If you have not realized, they are actually the first to discover water-based makeup remover in Japan too!

Just wipe them all off with one sheet and I'm off to bed! Super duper uselful for times when I get home and I feel so extremely tired and lazy to remove, wash, tone and moisturize my face before heading to bed. :D Girls should never never never go to bed with make up on! With a super convenient 3-in-1 Makeup Remover sheet bearing beauty benefits of removing makeup, toning, moisturizing in just one step without rinsing, it is definitely my favourite makeup remover! <3

So, for all you people out there who has lazy moments like me, this is very much recommend!

Tips: I usually keep the used thin pack with about 10 left over sheets in my bag for tired moments where I can just remove my makeup in the car on the way back! Saves so much time and yet keep my skin clean and healthy! <3

The other range for Bifesta Water-Based Makeup Remover Cotton Wipes is the Bright Up which works more towards removing melanin cells and dirt trapped in pores! They retail for about RM24.90 in Watsons but currently selling at a promotion price of RM19.80 for a soft pack of 46 sheets!

Good morning! *yawns* 

Sometimes, I had a rough sleepless night and I wake up feeling like a zombie.. zzz~ I really hate it when I wake up in this condition. I wake up feeling lethargic, mentally weak but I had a whole lot of task waiting to be completed. =/ This is also when I feel hungry but eating seems to consume so much time!

HISHOP sent me my saviour just in time! Let's see if this FINE Diet Coffee can help me! When I received the parcel, I get attracted to the packaging instantly! It's a solid metal can and that includes the cover as well. It gives a perception of good value, don't you think?

Twist open the cover and there's a pull-open lid which conceals the ingredients stored inside. A very hygienic way to seal the ingredients from contamination before use and total ease to remove it! The powder does not have a strong aroma like most coffee powder or beans when you open them up. It could be due to the light roast. Dark roast always give a strong aroma. I'm fine with that.

When it comes to dietary products, I am more aware of the ingredients and also the place of origin and manufacturer. FINE Diet Coffee is a Japanese product and it gave me more faith in the safety and quality of their products. The powders are grinned really fine and light, a mixture of Green Coffee Bean - higher antioxidant but less acidic  / Garcinia Cambogia - natural appetite surpressant / Dietary fibre - made from corn to supplement dietary fiber insufficiency. 

I added two teaspoons of powder and about 200ml of hot water rather than the suggested 100ml~120ml water. Usually, it is easy to taste a diluted coffee if too much water is added. Surprisingly for my mixture, the taste was not like bland diluted cup of coffee. It taste light and pleasant. I suppose it is the light roasting which differentiates it from the usual cup of diluted bitter dark roast taste. Again, there was no strong coffee aroma but I'm good with that too.

There was no sugar added and for the first time, I actually like the taste of sugarless coffee without milk! No difficulty in drinking at all!

I like how it helps to suppress appetite and increase my mental alertness so that I can quickly get my task done on time! Not worried about feeling like a hungry zombie with tons of task waiting to be done anymore! 

I know many people consider myself thin and I think that myself too. Hence, I would like to say that I am not taking this to suppress my appetite every morning and skip meals! I just think it's a good substitute to get me energized and focus at completing my task when time is limited. :) Rather than feeling lethargic and eating while I'm on my task (eating and working at the same time is not good for the digestion!)

For those going on a diet, do give it a try as I think it would give positive results! :)

Here's some of the factual information you could refer to regarding FINE Diet Coffee:

It was exciting to get an exclusive invite to a date with Casio Exilim for the launch of EX-ZR3500! Which girl wouldn't like to be on a date with the brand that give you the chio-est look on camera? Only Casio can do it!

The event started with an introduction and technical explanations on the new features of Casio EX-ZR3500 by Mr.Sezai and Mr.Nelson of Casio Malaysia. Some of the highlighted features and upgrade from the previous model are such as; Make-up Plus Mode / 1/1.7inch sensor / front shutter / Bluetooth Smart / SCENE mobile apps. You would think that most girls have no idea what these camera jargons such as  sensor or shutter means but let me tell you that Casio has educated many girls on these technical terms.


Still, the most exciting section of the event is the physical demonstration of the EX-ZR3500 by Casio Malaysia spokeperson, DJ Vera! A live demo and experience sharing was something I was really looking forward to as I've never owned a Casio camera before and am thinking if I should get one to assist in my blogging. 

I have tried a few shots with the older model and spoke to friends who own it and it convince me to look forward to getting this latest model! I was pretty much sold because this compact camera seems like it can definitely be brought around during travels and is so compact that I can keep them in my bags for my blogging events, ootd shoots, food reviews and more! <3

We get to try on the new EX-ZR3500 there and then! 4 EX-ZR3500 each in different colour; White / Beige / Pink / Yellow. 4 cameras are definitely not enough to go around a cafe full of girls and we all got to take turns to test out this new enhanced cutie! Which colour is your favourite? I'm loving the beige because it looks a little like bronze silver~

We then get to try out the new camera for ourselves! 3 photos posted up which impress the judges the most wins a brand new Casio EX-ZR3500 each! It's not hard to take beautiful photos with this pretty camera but it sure is tough to have to contest with other 29 pretty girls in the cafe!

Testing out the camera on all angles, it seems to work it's magic and make us look good from any angle we hold the camera, no matter up, down, or straight front eye level! The beauty mode automatically lighten dark skin tones according to the level we set, smoothen out uneven skin to give baby skin smooth but still maintains the glow on our skin! How can we resist?

A girly date with Casio EX-ZR3500 is not complete with pretty sweet indulgence like these baby colour cupcakes! Did you notice that they are the same colour as the camera as well? <3

Besides the selfie and wefie pictures, all the pictures in this blog is actually taken with the Casio EX-ZR3500 provided in the event! Such convenience where anyone with the access will be able to access the photos shared within a folder in a mobile apps called SCENE. Sharing couldn't get any easier!

Wefie is definitely a must! In the end, Grace's pretty picture posted up on instagram won her a Casio EX-ZR3500! Such a lucky girl to be the first few to bring home this baby!

I'll just have to wait patiently and look forward to getting mine! Can't wait to share more info and new features of the new Casio EX-ZR3500 priced at RM1699 with everyone once I get my hands on mine! Stay tune! 

For the time being, you can check out more information on their facebook or official site!

Attended a cosmetic demonstration with CLIO Professional products at Muse last month with the girls! Suppose to be a fun and exciting event but the was a power trip in Sunway Piramid and it was so hot =/ Imagine being in a sauna room fully clothed >.< It's a good thing that cosmetics don't melt that easily anymore. Haha..

Still, the show must go on and I have to say I learn quite a few tips from our professional make-up artist here. Don't you think the model looks great with the complete make over? <3

Today I'm gonna create some awareness about Natural Handmade Soaps! One of the trusted and most mentioned name is Kindersoaps! I like handcraft, handmade projects and making own natural soaps is one of it! But then I also know that if I make my own soaps, they are gonna be horrible at first! Haha..
