Online Shopping: PhatCulture

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored or requested but based on my personal review.

Dear loyal readers,

Today I will be doing a review on one of my favourite online store. I got to know about Phatculture from bloggers who mentioned about their ootd especially on Instagram. what I like about them is free shipping and free return. Besides that, you get good quality materials and cutting edge design for an affordable price. My first order was on 13th November 2013. Online vouchers redeemed are usually a discount of RM10 from your total amount. Do check out from time to time on their Facebook page and Instagram (@phatculture) for offers.

Review: Nutox Serum Concentrate Part I

Dear readers,

Today I will be doing a review on Nutox's Serum Concentrate. Nutox sent me an email with an attached form requesting to do a 14-day beauty regime with their serum concentrate. I immediately agree to try out since I am open to all products. My skin is not prone to sensitivity so I can easily try out any products without hesitation. My skin type is combination. When it is dry, it can be very flaky and wrinkly especially at my laughing lines. When it is oily huge acne will appear and it gets worse approaching the time of the month. Day1 of my Nutox Serum Concentrate application was 12th September 2014 so 25th September 2014  is the last day. Let's see how's the results.


Koh Lipe: Day 3 & 4

Good morning lovelies!

 
It's Day 3 at Koh Lipe which was the final full day we have. Day 2 was a blast and the snorkeling session was just a warm up. I would normally combine second last day and last day together coz there's nothing much on the last day but traveling home. I attached my video clip again at the end of this entry for you to enjoy. My heart was reluctant to get out of paradise.

Koh Lipe: Day 2

Good morning, paradise!

It is now day 2 and we are ready for island hopping. But first let's have a hearty breakfast. We had a nice sleep on last night because the night was so cold. Tonight is different because I suffered till I had to wake up. I had a severe sunburn till my whole body was heaty and felt like my skin was burning. I did apply lots of sunscreen with SPF50 but idk it did not work.Check out my entry on Day 1 for more information about our journey.

While waiting for breakfast, you can relax at the beautiful well maintained garden. Be sure to check out Mali Resort coz this is the best resort for me after visiting other resorts around the island. There are other 5 star resorts in this island that offers even more spacious suites and facilities but they are too pricey compared to Mali.

Koh Lipe: Day 1

Hello summer!

After a long trip to Japan last year on September 2013, I have been staying at home ever since. Then hubby decided to bring me to Koh Lipe, the Maldives of Thailand (a.k.a. Dog Island...I'll explain later) on May this year! I was so stoked. If you like to see more travel photos of various countries you can explore or maybe follow my Facebook :)

Of relaxing in the summer sun, just letting off steam. Oh, the sky will be blue, and you guys will be there too. When I finally do what frozen things do in summer!

Japan: What to buy and eat in Japan?

Hi there! This entry will be picture heavy as I have uploaded most of my food and purchases in Japan. Kansai area (Osaka, Kyoto etc) is famous for street food like okonomiyaki, takoyaki, yakitori and many others. I was on a budget so I did not try luxurious food like kaiseiki, kobe beef, wagyu beef, fugu (pufferfish) and many more.

I also did not enter into any discount store like 100 Yen Shop or Daiso coz it is very common at my homeland however you should coz who knows they have more special things that you can't find in our local Daiso. Hence without further a do here are some of the recommended stuff I have eaten and bought in Japan.

Update: I received alot of inquiries regarding where to buy Kracie Popin' Cookin' in Malaysia. Do scroll down and read more to find out where and the price.

Okonomiyaki
Osaka is the birth place for this cuisine so you definitely wouldn't wanna miss out. Okonomiyaki is a savoury pancake that consists of batter, egg, vege and meat/seafood. It is usually topped with otafuku/okonomiyaki sauce, aonori flakes (seaweed), bonito flakes (smoked tuna), mayonnaise and beni shoga (pickled ginger). Okonomiyaki types tend to differ according to region like in Tokyo is smaller than the ones in Kansai.
