"Heyy, morning! You look tired!
Have not have your cup of coffee?"

This is the most common verse of greeting you will get if you work in a white collar office. Office work can be very exhausting most of the time. Hence, majority of the office work force count on their daily dosage of caffeine to be their wake up call or to keep them more alert during work.

However, little did everyone know that the packets of instant coffee which they usually count on contains only a minimal amount of coffee extract. Then what exactly is in these packets of 3-in-1 instant coffee which makes such an aromatic cup coffee and gives alertness? Truth to be told, the ingredient which takes up the high percentage is sugar. The sudden sugar rush could be the culprit in making the drinkers think that it is the effect of caffeine but in fact, it could just a placebo effect. And the aromatic coffee? It is probably the flavour enhancer which is widely used in creation of instant beverages.

I don't know since when, but it was from as long ago as I can remember that Water Filter has slowly became a necessity in every household. The beginning technology of Water Filter only serves the purpose of filtering macro dirts. 

Slowly, the evolution of water filter technology has brought us more of that. The experts from Diamond has finally discovered that nothing is better than naturally purified water.

The premium materials selected includes the precious diatomite, “Ocean Diamond” - natural coral calcium, coconut shell based activated carbon, bamboo charcoal based activated carbon were selected to be the filter materials

The Coral Alkaline Water Machine DIAMOND CORAL can perfectly purifies water without electricity as the purification is done naturally through filtration using the selected quality materials. The natural purification removes rust, dust, bacteria, chemical components and heavy metals such as aluminum, iron, copper, lead and many others whiles retains the beneficial minerals in the water.

As DIAMOND CORAL filtration works naturally, it uses up to 6 filters multiple-filter design to guarantee greater performance. Sufficient contact time is created through lengthened water flow in the filter to go through the purifying materials for a complete purification.

If you're a city girl, you'll be just like me. I'm always on the lookout for a place to relax, rejuvenate and enhance our worn out natural beauty every weekend. However, it could turn into a less enjoyable treat when we have to go to different location for different rejuvenation such as facial, massage and pedicure manicure services.

It is only a true treat when I can find it all in one place and I think I just found one of the few pampering centre which can offer just this!

We often crack our heads to choose the right gift for guys, and our dad especially because he is a grown man who can afford almost anything that he have in mind. Especially for Father's Day, we always wanted to give something really meaningful and beneficial to him rather than just something materialistic or just beautiful aesthetically.

Just recently, I was introduced this item which fits the criteria perfectly! It is now my turn to introduce you to this item and let you know why I think it is the best gift for Father's Day this year! This item which I am eager to introduce to you is the Diamond 3-Second Instant Water Dispenser elegantly called the Diamond Coral WaterBar.

I still remember the first time I was dragged for a facial treatment during my teenage year for the first time. My family has a sensitive skin genetic issue where most of us will easily end up with large facial pore scars as we grow into young adults if not taken care of.. I believe that is an issue my mom is very worried about.

Facial treatments has became so expensive nowadays that we should really understand and get to know the service and product that we are paying for before engaging in any facial treatment individually or as a package. 

Most facial treatment will only treat the visible problem on our top skin layer but has anyone ever told you that beauty comes from within? That is something I believe too, that true beauty comes from nurturing within. 

Rather than what most beauty centre offers, this time around I tried Meridian Sculpture Lymphatic Face Treatment for the first time at Dermique, Subang Taipan.

// Gel exfoliation // 

The process of  Meridian Sculpture Lymphatic Face Treatment are as below;
  1. Pre-cleansing step
  2. Exfoliation with bio-enzyme
  3. Brightening exfoliant
  4. Meridian Face Massage
  5. Meridian Hand Massage
  6. Head Energizing Oxygen Spray
  7. Extraction using the Clip & Pick Technique
  8. Shoulder Massage
  9. Intensive Calming Mask
// Clip & Pick Exfoliation Technique //

There are a few process which I like in this treatment such as (like no.1) the gel exfoliation which reduce the likelihood of getting dry and peeling skin after the exfoliation process. It is most recommended for people with skin type like mine which is combination of dry and oily.

Extraction process during facial treatment usually involve a stainless steel blackhead / acne / pimple pen extractor stick and this is always unfavourable for people who have low tolerance for pain. For people with sensitive skin, they might even have swollen face as an aftermath.. 

 // Head Energizing O2 Spray //

At Dermique, (like no.2) black head extraction is done with a technique called clip and pick. Not to even mention about pain, there was barely anything felt at all. This zero pain extraction is prefect for people who always avoided facial because they are afraid of this painful procedure. The technique was made possible with the assistance of a magnifying tool. 

  // Meridian Face Massage //

  // Meridian Scalp Massage // 

  // Left- Before / Right - After Meridian  Massage // 

(like no.3) Meridian Massage is a signature process at Dermique Subang Taipan Branch and it might not be available at other branches. Meridian Massage is based on a healing method from the eastern culture. It stimulates the acupressure points using certain technique to help clear any blockage and balance the flow of qi (a bodily energy flow) and blood flow thereby improving the inner health of our body.

 // Meridian Massage //

Meridian Massage included in the treatment is on parts of our face. There is an option to select Meridian Massage for an additional body part such as hand and arm for RM40. Certain pressure is applied for this massage. The pressure was bearable for me as I like it slightly strong but you can always let them know your preference to have an enjoyable massage :)

2 trips to Dermique and I'm feeling to much better mentally and physically thanks to the Meridian Massage and the relaxing facial treatment. A must try if you like the comfort of massage!

Yes, California Raisins deserve a double thumbs up! Can't believe I have been eating raisins from the State of California as a healthy snack since I was young! LIGO was my favourite brand since childhood and my purchase slowly escalated to Sun Maid

Unlike any other commodities where most have different source of origin, I was quite surprised to find out that most of the raisins in the market came from California. Did you know?

Hi! So I am back to tour around the inner compound of Osakajo 大阪城The Osaka Castle of Japan! It's really freezing cold I regretted a little for not wearing a thicker top to keep me warmer. Sigh! I should really wrap up myself like this little kid behind me! He looks so comfortable in his little fluffy warmer jacket. *cute*

// Osaka Castle // 

To keep myself from freezing cold, my mission is to get inside the Osaka Castle! I'm just kidding. There's so much more inside than just keeping me warm! So let's go!

The admission is ¥600, which is about RM20 per person. The ticket price gradually reduce if you purchase as a group starting from a group of 15 individual ¥540.

// full scale replica of SACHI and FUSETORA //

It is actually a pretty much no-camera zone inside but let me brief you a little about what will be greeting you in there;

1st Floor: Museum Entrance - Before the journey begins, there's an Audio Guide Rental Counter available which will be very useful throughout the exhibition. On the same floor, there is a Movie Theater showcasing 5 programmes concerning Hideyoshi Toyotomi and Osaka Castle.

There's 2 optionsto take the lift and ascend to the fifth floor, where the story unfold in scenes or to ascend floor by floor using the stairway. I actually choose to ascend to the fifth floor and then descend the remaining floors by stairs. 

2nd Floor: Osaka Facts & Figrues - Display panels showing basic facts about Osaka and history at a glance.There is also a full scale replica of SACHI (legendary dolphin-shaped fish) and FUSETORA (the crouching tiger).

// Panoramic view of Osaka City from 50m above //

3rd Floor: Hideyoshi Toyotomi and his era - The Golden Tea Room, a Small Scale Model of Osaka Castle and Selected Historical Artifacts.

4th Floor: Hideyoshi Toyotomi and his era  - Objects associated with Hideyoshi Toyotomi and other artifacts of Sengoku era, and Osaka Castle reconstruction.

5th Floor: Scenes from "The Summer War in Osaka" - Famous scenes will be shown in the folding scenes with miniature figurines showcasing; Osaka Castle under Hideyoshi Toyotomi, The Summer War in Osaka and a miniature figuring display of Summer War in Osaka.

// Panoramic view of Osaka City from 50m above //

7th Floor: The Life of Hideyoshi Toyotomi - Presenting the life of Hideyoshi who built Osaka Castle and also unify the entire nation, and history of Osaka Castle at a glance during the period of Ishiyama Honganji. Do not miss out the interesting miniature diorama showcasing Hideyoshi Toyotomi "Taiko".

8th Floor: Observation Deck - enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of Osaka City from 50m above the ground. On the same floor is also a stereoscope featuring a 3-dimentional view of the "Old Osaka" aka Naniwa.

It was interesting to learn about the history of Osaka with the assistance of technology which made it all easier to absorb and also understand. I am particularly attracted to the miniature diorama on the 7th floor because of the 3D human projection on the miniature 3D modal. Do check it out and tell me if you feel the wow factor too! 

In continuance from the photo appreciation of beautiful Sakura blooms around the castle from my previous post, here are a few more close up captures for you to fell head over heels. There is a reason why Japan is flooded with tourist from countries all over during every Sakura season.  

Do take note that Sakura blooming season is different in every prefecture, region. Hence, it is important to check out the blooming periods before booking your flight.

 // Flower Pizza //

We all know Pizza is the conventional item in the menu that we will all order when it comes to a gathering with family and friends or at any fun moments at all! However, are you already bored with the repetitive Pizza choices available? It is always either Hawaiian Chicken for me or the seafood selection.

Good morning from Tennoji! This is probably one of the most anticipated plan in my trip itinerary! We will be going to the Osaka Castle and Garden for a brisk walk in a historical ancient place surrounded by beautiful sakura blooms! I took a subway train from the place I stay, Shitennoji Station to Tenmabashi Sation. The Osaka Castle is just a very short walk from the station.

Where did you spend your long weekend last month? 

3 days is not too long nor too short a holiday. At times like this, we often look for short distance getaway like a 2 days trip to Melaka or Penang but we always end up drenching our energy both physically and mentally. By the time it's first day of getting back to our usual routine, we're like exhausted zombies. Haha. 

Don't you agree with me?

If you're not at YSL Beauté Club launch last Friday, I don't know where else you would rather be! I have not had this an amazing Friday night for quite sometime.

I've heard so much about the Koi Bubble Tea when it was only available at Singapore back then. Not only were they saying so much goodness about Koi Bubble Tea but even said that it is much better than the best one we have here!  Finally, it has cross the shore and arrived in Malaysia! First outlet opened to public at 1Utama.

Cheesy drinks are spreading like wildfire in the local scene! One after another, brands offering Cheese Drinks are sprouting in just a short period of time. Joining in just recently is Regiustea, a Hong Kong pioneer in the market which already has about 73 outlets worldwide!

The first branch in Malaysia was launched just beside the Sunway Velocity, Cheras. It consist of 2 floors for comfortable seating on both levels.

// Reguistea Beverage Menu & Price // 

Choices of drinks are pretty similar but with a twist of it's own from Cheese Tea and Cheese Coffee Drinks to their special Reguis Durian and Sun Moon Lake (Taiwan) Milk Tea. Durian Lovers, now it's your favourite fruit in a drink! Drink it and let me know if it gives you durian breath! Haha..

For matcha lovers, available is also the Uji Matcha Latte range; Uji Matcha /  Reguis Uji Matcha / Red Bean Uji Matcha / Oreo Uji Matcha Cheese.

This time around, I ordered an Uji Matcha Regius Cheese and a Regius Coffee (without cheese foam), both available at RM12.90 each. Let's try it and see how it fare!

Regius Coffee: Ice Milk Coffee with Cream + Coffee syrup on top. The Coffee was milky and sweet, definitely the choice for those who like syrup coffee!

 // Uji Matcha Regius Cheese //

Uji Matcha Regius Cheese: Ice Matcha Latte + Cheese Cream Foam on top. This was not really my cup of tea as the flavour of the uji matcha seems to be different from those I have tasted from Japan before. I felt that the uji matcha here taste similar to artificial matcha flavour. However, the mixing of uji matcha drink away from Japan can be a very individual preference hence, there's no judging on the taste.

The Cheese foam on top is very thick with a hint of cheese flavour. Although I would prefer the cream foam thickness to be lighter, this is good news for those who crave for thick creamy cheese foam for a maximum diary experience satisfaction! *wink

The cafe plays up a simple industrial cement and contemporary brick style. The simple design cancels out distractions and promotes comfort to be used as gathering or work space. 

 // Regius Tea - Cheese Tea //

Have you tried it yet? If you have not, hurry over this weekend while the queue is still bearable! During my time of visit, there was just short queue. Share your thought on your drinks with me if you ever drop by for visit! :)
