So the other day when I loaded my laundry in for a wash, little did I know that the hubs threw in a brand new BLUE shirt that he bought from BKK. Just came back from Bangkok not long ago and it was superb. Shopping heaven, cheap clothes, amazing coffee and the food was yums. Anyway, everyone knows that you don't mix colored clothing with whites but accidents happen so, imagine the horror when I found this :

A very white shirt with blue stains. Very bad blue stains actually.

Thank Heavens, someone introduced me to Vanish not long ago and I had it on the shelf, untouched.


Truthfully, I adore the colors. Simply love how they are both available in compact sizes, which makes storage easy. Both comes with a scoop as well and doesn't require you to "guess how much you are pouring into the washing machine" everytime you do the laundry.

Yes, there's a ton of laundry detergent that's out in the market. So, why Vanish? I was asking the same thing as well and ever since I've moved into my own place, I've tried countless detergents. Some doesn't really clean well, some doesnt prevent mal-odor which happens pretty frequently since I do not have a dryer and I rely on the weather to dry my clothes on the balcony. After two years, Vanish was recommended and I decided to give it a go.


See the results for yourself :)

Good right? I used Vanish Power 02 Crystal White Powder, since the stain was on white. The special formula contains Oxi Powerlift agents which penetrate and lift the stain first time, and also whitening ingredients to help retain a brilliant whiteness in washing.

Ever since, I've started using Vanish Power 02 Powder (which is the one in Pink) for my colored clothes and the White one with the whites.

If you're curious, Vanish is now giving out free samples. So, take this opportunity to try it out. Click here : and ask for a sample which they will gladly send to your doorstep.

ALSO, there's a competition going on and great prizes to be won. All you've got to do is to register yourself, describe "Your Vanishing Trick", submit your entry and hope for the best! Get your friends and family to vote for you and you MIGHT just be the lucky winner to a brand new 32" LED TV!

AND here's where I need you to vote for mine too! All you've gotta do is click on this link and VOTE FOR ME = LIKE!

Have fun trying Vanish!

The Smasung Galaxy S4 has landed!

So last Saturday, Facebook was buzzing with the latest arrival of the new Samsung Galaxy S4. Every major Samsung outlet in Malaysia was packed with excited fans of the Galaxy and it was a thrilled to be able to experience the fine qualities of the phone myself.


Since there's an outlet nearby where I live, the hubs and I took a trip down to The Gardens. Take a look at the crowd. I had to get in line, just so I'll be able to check the Galaxy S4.

True to its' claims, this phone is best-in-class Galaxy S device designed.


Created with the understanding of what matters most in people’s lives, the GALAXY S4 is developed to redefine the way people live and maximize their fulfillment. More than that, the latest Samsung device is built to make every moment meaningful for a richer, simpler and fuller life.


What I truly love about the phone is the camera. An opportunity to capture a candid moment is an essential part of every human being's life in today's world of technology. Equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera, the GALAXY S4 enables people to take pictures in several exciting different ways.

‘Dual Shot’ allows simultaneous picture-taking of both front and rear cameras, accentuating the memory acquired by capturing the expression of cameraperson as well.
‘Drama Shot’ and ‘Sound & Shot’ are also innovative features that evoke a richer and enhanced life experience for people.
‘Animated Photo’ instills a sense of fun in people’s lives and allows people to get creative with photos. It allows the user to take a series of shots, and pick one part of the photo to move while the others stay still.

That's only 4 out of 12 outstanding shooting modes. How cool is that?

What I found interesting was the Group Play function which allows people to enjoy music, photos, documents and games without even requiring a Wi-Fi or cellular signal, increasing the ease of sharing moments with those around them. Time and time again, I've been through times when I couldn't send out an urgent email or posting up a photo to get an opinion, now this will definitely come in handy!

Get this. Samsung Smart Pause feature tracks eye movement to pause a video when the user looks away before resuming once their attention returns to the screen. Never ever miss a moment watching a video, ever again!

I've always been telling myself to eat healthy and stay well of late. This phone couldn't be more perfect because the S Health keeps users up-to-date with health and wellbeing information through its sensors which monitors health and surroundings. Also, users can easily check their health conditions using food diary, exercise diary and sleep monitor to stay fit and healthy. Wow, talk about being an all in one phone.


For those who are keen on getting the new Samsung Galaxy S4, you may check it out at any Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile, as well as Samsung Mobile Brand Shops. The phone is retailing from RM2,199 and may vary among different telco service providers. The phone itself is sold out at the moment but it'll definitely be back in stock very soon.

For further information, you can visit and


Took a trip down to Espresso Lab for a fine cuppa cappuccino. Apart from Illy, they serve one of the best cup of cappuccino. Oh, and a splurge at Charles & Keith for this Black Sexy Pumps! OMG I freaking love this pair. Can't wait to officially wear it.

Are you ready for the next Galaxy?

I've been hearing so much about the much anticipated arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S4 lately. They had a group of ochestra performing around Selangor and Kuala Lumpur for the pre-teaser of the next Galaxy and I managed to catch one of them at Pavilion last weekend. They were stationed near the fountain, right in front of the main entrance and I've got to admit, they were really good. Even though the crowd that day seemed very much in a hurry, the orchestra managed to catch the attention of a throng of audience who were buzzing by. Everyone cheered when the performances ended and truthfully, it made me even more excited that the unveil of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be soon. Very very soon, guys!

As it was a crazy hot day, I took shade with the hubs at Espressemente. Tried their Viennese Cappucino and it was just.... words can't describe how awesome it is... though it came in a very very small cup at RM11. I have a problem with coffee that comes in small cups actually. However, they are always good. So, no complaints there, really.

Took a little trip up to Typo. Love their stuff, some are super creative! Gotten our initials for the wedding at RM30/3pcs, which is pretty reasonable I would say. Then, only to find out that the maid of honor bought those for us for Christmas but she didn't manage to finish decorating them, we have 2 initials. LOL.

So, that was my Saturday. Not very exciting except that my battery died halfway and I was trying to find a place where I can charge it but ended up leaving Pavilion so that I could charge my phone in the car. Yah.

Anyway guys, if you would like to know more about Samsung's new Galaxy S4, all the information can be found here at this link :

DIY-ed Projects : Lace Candle Jars

photo 2

I love how these lace candle jars turned out. They are exactly like what I've imagined. I am going with a lace themed wedding of neutrals and mostly beige. My maid of honor and bridesmaids will be in lace as well, I will be in lace, the table setting in the ballroom will be in ivory lace and I pretty much want these jars to be in lace too!

Again, I have to thank Pinterest for giving me this idea of making these jars possible. The mason jars are pretty hard to find, and so far I've only managed to come across one supplier nearby. Not really sure if there's more around but most likely there are. I don't know. Once I found this one, I didn't bother to look anymore.

During CNY, the hubs and I went to get around 120 bottles. 60 short ones and 60 tall ones. It would be nice to have a mixture of tall and short as a table center piece. As for the extras, I thought of decorating them on the reception table.

Then there's that place, Sin Wah at PJ Old Town. I mentioned earlier that they have crazy loads of stuff and I'm really not exaggerating. Here's an idea of a single lace ribbon sample column. They have another 3, so yea. However, I only managed to find the one that I really like and thankfully, it was priced at RM1.80/m as I needed 30m for all of my jars. I was quite pleased that I only had to spend a total of RM48 for the lace wrap. That was when the boss gave me a RM0.20 discount each meter for buying so much.

I really liked this one but it was RM20/m, so I had to give it up

To have everything you need to make a lace candle jar, you need a jar (duh!), lace wrap, glue gun (RM13), glue stick and a whole lot of band aid. Burnt my hand twice so far and I still have 36 more to go!

So there ya go! A simple DIY Lace Candle Jar for my wedding table centerpiece. Great for those who are on a budget, and they look stunning! Can't wait to see them all lit up on that day! 2 more months now :D

Buttered #2

It was a really fun night! Second time at Butter Factory for a casual night with great people and everyday music. Hanged out upstairs, much better instead of squeezing downstairs among tables. Though I must say that the placement of furniture upstairs wasn't that tipsy-friendly. Through the night I managed to kick (really hard) at the platform near the bar, tripped on myself (my fault) and fell head first onto the end of our neighbour's table. Thankfully some of them saved me from a terrible fall, and thankfully I didn't fall ONTO the table, there were so many MOET bottles (rich people I think) I don't even want to imagine what will happen if I did. Other than a few bruises, everyone had fun!

DIY-ed Projects : New collars for my furballs

After going through some DIY & Crafts inspirational photos on Pinterest, I had this idea to do-it-myself cat collars for both my cats. I used to make friendship bands when I was younger, so all I needed were the threads, bells, some loops, and probably one or two additional stuff.

There's this place at PJ Old Town that I was told, called Sin Wah. They have tons of crafty knick-knacks for sale and I needed some lace wraps for the recycled mason jars that I bought for the wedding, so both the hubs and I took a trip down to check out that place. Anyway, I'll blog about that in another post because this is mainly for the cat collars. I managed to get everything I needed for the collars and the total came up to less than RM10, which saves a tiny bit of money as compared to those retailing outside but the whole point is the love I put into these two collars for the two fluffballs that I love so much. Lucky cats :B

Everything you need to make two cat collars.

We wanted to match the collars with their eyes, so we've chosen Blue for Manja and Orange for Mojo. Love the shades we picked out for them, plus I added a jewel to each of the collars to make it a tad bit different from others out there.

And the FINAL RESULTS after a few days!

Just 'coz I Love You

The day began with a visit to Antipodean which we've not been for months. Decided to treat ourselves with a little Western food since we've been consuming Chinese food every single day throughout Chinese New Year. As usual, he had his Mushroom Cheese Omelet and I decided to try something new but it was pretty disappointing when my meal arrived.


RM18 for this plate of French Toast, Maple Syrup and 2 small tiny pieces of Pork Bacon. We've pretty much agreed that Antipodean is really nothing much for their food, unlike when it first opened. The worst is that they stinge with the portion of quality food. For instance, I used to find that they load the plates with too much eggs, mushrooms and of those which cost less and only gave one or two pieces of those which cost quite a bit.

RM9 for 2 slices of bread? RM9 for extra 2 eggs (no choice for 1 egg instead)..I got pretty annoyed actually.

Won't be heading there unless I wanted the breakfast meal which they priced at RM19. I used to opt for Pork Bacon but they gave only like one or two pieces and if you are a bacon lover, you'll definitely know what I mean by one or two pieces just won't do. So, I decided to go for their Beef Sausage instead which was still served a piece but I found that the sausage sort of worth more than the bacon in terms that there's more meat to chew on. More meat, get what I mean?

Soon enough, it was time to head out for dinner. My better half surprised me with a romantic candle-lit dinner at PLOY @ Clearwater. The view of Kuala Lumpur and its' Twin Towers from Work @ Clearwater was really something. I had never been to that place, so it was my first. I've always thought that PLOY was one of those Plan B, Ben's type of restaurant but they are pretty unique.

photo 1

"Ploy means ‘gem’ in Thai. We were inspired by the true gems of Japanese and Thai cuisine – the interplay of sweet, sour, salty, spicy and umami flavours; the meticulous preparation of dishes using only the freshest ingredients. By applying these tenets of asian cooking to not-so-asian dishes, we created a new modern asian cuisine." -

Their Valentine's Day set menu was a good selection of mixed Japanese and Western. We started off with a bowl of Mushroom Soup lightly dazzled with Truffle Oil.

photo 3

Tempura Seabass with Japanese Mint Leaf was pretty unique. I loved the dip. Not too sure what it was but it tasted good.

Five Element Linguine, which was tossed Linguine with dried chilli shrimp, fried crab sticks, poached egg and fish roe. I was okay with it but hubs didn't like it at all because he thought Linguine which was something Italian, should never go with Pan Mee side-lings.

Baked Chicken Ham and Dory Fish with Miso Butter Sauce for the hubs. I didn't like it because they included Chinese Parsley in it and it totally ruined my taste buds because I've never liked eating it. Without the parsley, maybe I would have liked it.

I chose the Australian Tenderloin Steak with Asparagus, Baby Potato, Bacon and Gorgonzola Cream Sauce. I loved it. tasted really good. The beef was really tender, and the sauce was similar to a Cabonara sauce that I've tried elsewhere. Had to get them to re-cook the beef though because it was too red for my liking. Otherwise, all good.

photo 2

Oreo Cheese Cake for dessert. Light and fluffy, not at all heavy. Had lemon taste to the cream cheese and the bottom cookie was just right.

Overall, we enjoyed most of the food. I loved the atmosphere of the place. It was even more special when couples were seen having an intimate time together and everyone spoke in a hush manner. LOL. However, the bill came up way more than we thought the food was worth. PLOY would be a better place to wine, perhaps?


Last but not least, my now fav Leopard printed weaved clutch from H&M which I got at RM40 only! LOVE.

Year of the Snake

This Chinese New Year was pretty fulfilling. It used to be just another day with loud music, bunch of cookies and food but this year seemed to be quite different, maybe because it will be the last of getting Ang Paus for me since I'll be giving instead next year. So it was like, the last Chinese New Year I'll be celebrating as a kid ever since I was born. In a way, it was pretty meaningful to be able to spend some time with close friends & family members.

It was never really about the money. Giving angpau is part of the whole Chinese New Year tradition, no matter how much is in it, it is the whole meaning of giving and receiving during this auspicious time. Yet, it is a shame that some sees it as once you have signed those law abiding papers, you are considered married and you no longer deserve this red packet from them anymore. Well, from my point of view, Chinese New Year is a traditional celebration and as long as the couple has yet to have the traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony (unless the couple doesn't want to), is not married by tradition. But then again, this is my opinion. Everyone has their own and this Chinese New Year, it was pretty clear who were the people who actually embraced the whole tradition of giving and receiving and of those who does it as a chore.

Pinterest has been my source for everything I want to know now. I check in almost every hour to get inspired of all sorts of arts & crafts, wedding ideas, designs and mostly everything I love. So I decided to try this hair-do. My hair was getting pretty heavy if I tie it up and it's really annoying when I let it down because it is so long that it tends to get stuck somewhere, in between stuff and blabla.

photo 1

What do you think? Though it isn't as neat as the one I followed from, I absolutely loved it. The bun actually felt weightless which was the whole point. So, that I can dig in those food in peace, right. :P

Anyway, every year for Chinese New Year Eve, we'll be heading over to Daniel & Karen's place for dinner. This year, we had crazy amount of dishes that Karen prepared all by herself and they are so delicious!

photo 4

First up was Lou Sang that was pre-prepared by AEON. Money. Wealth. Happiness. Bora-Bora. Lamborghini. Joy. Wisdom. More Money. Big House. Maldives. Europe. Japan. More Money. Success. The usual :)

Fish Maw soup with alot of stuff in it. Scallop, Abalone, Fish things and it was super goodness. Boiled for more than 12hours!

Curry Chicken. Not sure what do you call it but it's the Mushrooms, Oysters, More Mushrooms, Broccoli, Carrots and some fortune luck thingie that comes with the dish.

photo 5

My favourite! Roast pork with Leek which I ate like half a bowl, Cereal Prawns ; super yummy! I love cereal prawns and I make it often myself. Steam Red Snapper (if not mistaken) with Ginger and Soy Sauce.

Karen even made Orange Juice and boiled Red Bean Soup!!!!! Jeezzzezzz, how on earth can one person prepare so many dishes for all 7 of us?!

Dinner ended, we had glasses of red and white wine to catch up. It was great, the night ended pretty late and we had a brand new "year" the following day at Grandparent's house. So, we ended the night with hugs and well wishes. :)

DIY-ed Projects : Walk-in-Wardrobe


AND MY WALK-IN-WARDROBE IS DONE...after moving in close to two years. Can you imagine, two years of clothes draping here and there. Stocks lying about. No dresser, no full length mirror and the worst was, not enough room to walk about. Even the railing which I used to hang my clothes was missing a leg and it took up most of the walking space and I had to make do with squeezing about the room, looking for stuff.

A walk-in-wardrobe for me was definitely the plan, but we delayed it for 2 whole years because of the money factor and everybody knows that a custom one could cost a zillion! So one day, hubs was wondering if we could custom make a whole wardrobe using IKEA's shelves and with the few visits that we made to IKEA few months back gave us plenty of ideas how to make it happen.


So we bought the shelves, bought some curtain hooks and railings for my clothes, gotten some storage boxes, chose a brand new curtain to lighten up the room, cupcake trays for my make up thingies (saves space by stacking things up), grabbed hold of a grey discounted rug which was selling really fast (the next day we went to IKEA again, it was GONE!), and made do with some old stuff about the house.


Once we were done with the whole room, I just couldn't believe it. I loved the transformation. Friends & family who have been into this room once, know how big a transformation from a plain to-do room into this. All that with the effort of my other half, working and hammering well into the night. We've probably spent 1/4 of what it may have costed us if we were to get a contractor to custom make one. I've always had a thing for DIY pieces and the fact that I get to be in a room where everything was self-made, makes the room a whole lot special. :)

Weekend and the Awesomest maggie ever!

I've realised that I never really blog about my days anymore, unlike when I first started blogging. What has become of blogging anymore? It used to be sort of a personal diary to me and it was only open among friends, but I guess as we are more exposed to social medias everyday, things have changed. I guess only 20% of the society nowadays genuinely blog about what they really feel and what they've been up to on a daily basis but blogs have now become more of a advertorial platform for most.

It may seem that mine has turned from a personal blog, to an open directory where people can get info on food, fashion and whatever I want to share on other stuff. Back then, when things got a little to personal, there won't be anyone to judge if the blog was only open among friends and those whom you choose to share them with but I guess, you'll end up hurting one or more if it got way serious. So, people mostly blog about what's on the surface and not what's deep down anymore.

Ah well, welcome to the future of blogging.

My weekend wasn't as hectic as the last. Mainly gotten my car fixed. The thing is, it is already 6 years of age and I really can't blame that some of the parts are close to expiration. Battery was weak, window switch was spoiled, car key battery died, road tax was laid on the dashboard ever since last August (very lazy to stick it on my windshield - okay, that has nothing to do with my car's age) and basically those were the things I had to get done.

There were these cute little kittens playing around the workshop when I was there and they are for adoption. Mommy cat, which is a stray was adopted by the workshop owner which then gave birth to three really lovely kittens and one have already been adopted. These two photos of the kittens are still there, open for adoption plus one more hidden behind the orange/black one was actually found by the owner, so he picked it up and put them into the lot. It would be great if any of you reading this can share the news for the adoption. Though the owner seem to take good care of them, they are still in need of a good home, one where they have a more comfortable and cleaner place to sleep and play in. So, if you are ever interested, the workshop is in OUG. You can email me for more info.

Kitten with orange and black patches. Really really playful and sweet looking :)
This one resembles alot of a Siamese cat colour with really distinctive blue eyes.

Took a little trip down to Bangsar Village 2 to have a good plate of fried rice at The Rice Restaurant (by Big Group) but to my horror, they (The Rice Restaurant and Canoodling) were no longer at BV2!!! So, the hubs and I had to settle for WonderMama because it was already 3pm and we were really hungry. If given the choice, we wouldn't have chosen WonderMama because we didn't feel that the prices were reasonable enough.

What altered our perception of WonderMama was when the plate of Maggie came and it was the BEST Maggie Goreng we've ever tasted! It came with prawns, scallops, fish roe and some other stuff which gave the noodles so much taste! I've got to order that the next round I am there because I only had a spoon to try, .. maybe two, .. the noodles were ordered by hubs actually. :B


Tried my luck at Borders, once again. I wanted to get the book ever since I watched Life of Pi because I heard the book is good. Luck was on my side that day, there were only two books left. So, I grabbed one and began reading it in the car on our way back home. Definitely was not disappointed by the author, and that was when I read his note, haven't even begin on the story of Pi yet.


Ended my weekend completing one out of the 22 conclusions of Heavy Rain on PS3. This game is really awesome. Came to a point where I actually felt the pain when...okay, I am not going to spoil it but check it out, you'll love it.


Tuesday, January 29, 2013



My first thought : How did the name come about?
Anyway, I still don't know.

Been to WonderMama at Bandar Village a couple of times now and I find that the food is mediocre, but people do seem to take a liking to that place. Mostly because like others, I find the place really pleasant to dine in. The servers were a little under trained but I guess that's normal given that services at most of the restaurants in Malaysia isn't top notch either. Rustic pots and pans, oil lamps and tin can mugs can be found as decoration which gives a really back dated feel to the restaurant. Funny that what we see now in a modern restaurant or cafe are things from the past, like fashion, how high waist skirts and shorts are back in trend. Instead of moving forward, we are heading back in time. The irony of that!

Anyway, here are some pretty pictures I've captured during my visit :

I love their logo! Isn't the bird cute :)

Desserts! and some of our childhood sugar drops.

I think they've reprinted their menu from the last that I went. This was taken when it was open not too long ago.

Bacon Fried Rice the hubs had which was okay.

I ordered Chicken Pong Teh which is braised chicken with potatoes. Pretty homecooked style but I thought it was nothing special. Came with fried tofu skin with steamy white rice.

When you look up

According to them, this is one of their specials. Rose Lemon with Sago. I love it!

Hubs wanted to try their chendol. He is quite a fan of chendols actually but it was okay. We've tasted better though.

Went there three times and tried other dishes. The Kampung Fried Rice wasn't too bad but the thing is, it didn't come with Kangkung. Those who are a fan of Kampung Fried Rice will know that a classic plate of Kampung Fried Rice must come with Fried Ikan Bilis and Kangkung. Their Japanese Curry Cheese Fries are pretty unique though. I wouldn't really recommend their Spicy Fried Chicken Salad and their Chicken Burger though. Not really worth the price.

I wouldn't really say they have really good food but I wouldn't say they have bad food either. I'd probably give them 5/10 ratings.
