Mak's Chee Authentic Wonton, 1 Utama

Monday, January 25, 2016

Everyone has been raving on social media about Mak's Chee wonton noodle store which just opened at 1 Utama. It serves Hong Kong style wonton noodles that are springy in every strand. The news must have spread real fast because there's always a long queue waiting to be seated.

We were curious & decided to join along the crowd already lining up at the entrance. Even more intriguing, the restaurant was operating at half capacity that day. Meaning probably longer than usual waiting period.

Sigma Mrs Bunny Travel Kit Makeup Brushes

Thursday, January 21, 2016

In my previous post, I revealed that I was a makeup newbie & wasn't the best person to look for beauty advice. As my number of vanity products grew, I thought of investing a good set of makeup brushes. A lot of beauty gurus swear by their sacred tools as it helps them achieve their best looks - be it for day or night, even on special occasions.

I did a quick search & checked out a couple of YouTube videos, even enquire at a few beauty boutiques. It turns out there are 2 types of brushes - natural & synthetic fibers. Natural fibers are made of animal hair & more expensive. Synthetic fibers are made of nylon or other man-made fibers & cheaper than its natural counterpart.

Both brush types have their own benefits depending on the makeup products used. For beginners like me, it would be best to start of with the synthetic ones. My resources showed that Sigma brushes are popular among amateurs & pros as well due to its affordable price. However, this brand is not easily found in Malaysia because no retailers carry them. While there are online agent on Facebook taking orders, I wasn't convinced with the authenticity & resorted to checking out Luxola & Hermo.

Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar & Watery Cushion Concealer

Sunday, January 10, 2016

Some of my colleagues think that I'm pretty good with makeup. Truth to be told, I was a late bloomer & only started dabbling with makeup until recently. Well guess what, I am a bride-to-be & I needed to be sure that I look my best daily, while counting down to my big day. It's fascinating how life changing events can push a person to do things that he/she would've never imagined doing, or just too lazy to care about previously.

Enough of my past makeup history. I have been eyeing this Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar long enough last year & was hoping to treat myself one for Christmas. Alas, I was too slow because the product sold like hot cakes & went out of stock for weeks. When it was restocked, I jumped at the opportunity to grab one & add on another Watery Cushion Concealer into my shopping bag.
