100% Organic DIAMOND Sapindus Soap, Great for Teenagers and Adults

I’m a bit of a Grinch when it comes to holidays and festive season. I cannot stand the idleness and staying around not being productive, but if there’s one thing that I hate most about festive season is that I still need to meet up with friends and relatives and socialize around. More often than not, they are judgmental at just about everything, and critisizes me and my son from top to toe. It is usually on how we look; with him taking after me looking petite and malnourished and all that despite gobbling down his food like nobody’s business.

image

So this year, before I get involve in another one of those drama where people ask me why I look like this and why my son look like that and stuff, I’m gonna at least make us look flawlessly pretty and radiant, by using this 100% Organic Diamond Sapindus soap. While stupid gossips and criticism on my parenting skills won’t stop, at least people can’t tell me that my son and I look ugly and we need to do something about it.

image

100% Organic Diamond Sapindus soap was given to me by a friend to try. According to her, it works miracle on the skin, especially problematic and sensitive ones.

image

The soap features a PH 7.5, which is a bit alkaline and can be used from top to toe, including the intimate parts of the body.

image

The soap produces delicate foams that’s not only anti-bacterial, but anti-inflammatory as well.

image

The combination of top quality natural ingredients used in the making of this Diamond Sapindus soap not only help to eliminate body odor but also soothes and nourishes the skin. A bonus; it keeps the skin moisturized and has whitening effect.

image

Diamond Sapindus soap has no chemicals and is paraben free and therefore, safe to be used by teenagers as well. My son suffers from acne breakouts pretty often and regular soaps and bathgels that we got over the counter at the drugstores just doesn’t cut it. And so, I let him use this instead as a bath soap as well as a facial wash and it works wonder on his sensitive skin. The itch that he usually gets after a bath is now no more.

image

We use it as a shampoo as well and guess what? It works miracle in eliminating drandruffs for both of us.

Hopefully the soap will help us look like we’re worth a million dollar soon and we’ll rock the festive season like a Korean star.

Halal Chinese New Year’s Feast at Utara Coffee House, Armada Hotel PJ

image

Looking for a Halal restaurant that is offering splendid Chinese New Year’s feast? Here’s one; Utara Coffee House, Armada Hotel Kuala Lumpur. The restaurant is located in the heart of Petaling Jaya and is a Halal Certified restaurant that is offering delightful feast for those who want to host their Chinese New Year’s reunion dinner with their multi-religious family and friends.

image

Here’s yours truly with her all time favourite chef, Chef Chew. Executive Chef Chew and team offers nothing but the most magnificent feast for this coming Chinese New Year and here’s sharing with you some of the delicious Chinese New Year’s dishes that I’ve given the privilege to sample:

image

Lousang with Tiger Prawns and Clams. The prawns were not only fresh, but sweetly fat and juicy as well. The combination of prawns and clams is definitely refreshing in comparison to the traditional Salmon slices toppings.

image

Prosperity Chinese New Year Hor d’oeuvres. This platter contains an assortment of delicious finger food that’s rather addictive.

image

Braised Seafood Broth with Dried Fish Roe& Crabmeat. One of my favourite dish in the set, I must say. The soup was abundant with meat and was richly flavoured.

image

Steamed Chicken with Ginger&Scallions. I’m not quite a fan of steamed chicken. The paleness and the simplicity of the meal is quite a turned off for me, but I took a bite of this regardless and was pleased to find that they’re not plain tasting as they usually taste. The steamed chicken has no funny smell whatsoever and was rather sweet. Good on it’s own or to be paired with plain rice.

image

Deep Fried Grouper with Onion and Ginger Gravy was not only adeptly fried, but was flavourful as well.

image

Chinese Assortment of Meaty Rice. This was on the top of my favourite list. The rice was packed with delicious meat like chicken sausage, chicken ham and beef bacon. Rather addictive and if you are watching your diet, I would recommend you to go easy on this as you can easily spoon one mouthful after another and by the time you realized what you’ve done, you could have already consumed a bowlful or two.

image

Braised Mushroom with Mustard Plant in Fatt Choy Sauce. I’m not a fan of vegetable dish and I usually give them a miss. But Chinese New Year’s vegetable dishes usually means good luck and prosperity and I’m all for good luck and prosperity and so I had some of this. The huge mushroom was the size of my palm and was on the meaty note. The mustard plant was sweetly crunchy while the brocollies were simply delicious, having soaked up all the fatt choy sauce. If this were laid on your table, I suggest you not to skip it. Not because I’m superstitious but because they are delicious.

image

Poon Choy is one of the CNY specialty that shouldn’t be missed. There’s all sort of delicious meat and seafood in it, guaranteed to make you feel rich.

image

Stir Fried Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk. This dish was exquisitely yummy and finger licking good. The prawn were so fresh and bouncy and I find myself wanting more than just one or two of it.

image

Sautéed Top Shell in Yam Savarin. I’m allergic to yam, so I gave this dish a miss in favour of desserts.

image

Mochi, Deep Fried Nian Gao and Chilled Sweet Apple with Gingko are some of the desserts offered to this year’s Chinese New Year’s feast, a must have if you want to end your meal with a sweet note.

image

The pricing for the feast is as shown in the promo poster.

My Chips Salted Eggs Potato Chips

Malaysians has been typically crazy about all things salted eggs since the past few years. Once upon a time, I thought the heat will start to chill down after awhile, but a few years down the road, it’s proven that the madness is here to stay.

image

I’m not exempted from being affected by the eggie madness and while I was looking to stock up tidbits for my guests this upcoming Chinese New Year on www.homedeals.my a couple of days ago, I spotted these homemade My Chips Salted Eggs Potato Chips and decided I’d give it a go. They seems pretty interesting and promising and I thought perhaps these chips will give an exciting twist to the usual traditional tidbit offerings like peanuts and cookies.

image

These salted egg potato chips comes in two variant; one is the original while another one is the spicy version. They’re made from the finest potatoes and is generously flavoured with salted eggs.

image

MyChips Salted Eggs Potato Chips (Original) (RM23.90) tasted just like the regular potato chips, but with distinctive rich and creamy flavours that comes from the salted eggs coating. I don’t really recommend you to eat em in front of the TV, though. You’d find them magically gone before even your tv show is over.

image

My Chips Salted Eggs Potato Chips (Spicy) (RM23.90) is definitely potato chips at a different level that it taste almost gourmet. I kinda like this one more than the regular version of it. It may claimed that it is spicy, but personally speaking, it does not sting the tongue to the point you will need to drink water in between of snacking. If I need to describe it, I’d say it’s pretty much rich and flavourful as the regular version but much more appetizing and addictive.

Wanna get some of these to munch on too? Go ahead and click HERE or HERE. I assure you that these are simply fantastic.

My stress level have been pointing to the roof lately and anymore of it, I would have to visit the pshychiatrist or a psychotherapist to get myself all fixed up again.

A hardcore Dota 2 gamer? Looking for people who shares the same interest with you but not sure where and how to connect with each other in real life? Well then, I have exciting news for you.

image

 Resorts World Genting is proudly returning as host of professional esports tournament ESL One Genting 2018 for the second time. Together with ESL, the world’s largest esports company, thousands of fans are going to witness the best Dota 2 action on January 23-28, 2018. This event marks the third official Minor tournament of the year, as the top 16 Dota 2 teams will not only battle over a prize pool of $US400,000 but also for 400 coveted Qualifying Points that are collected to determine the eight direct invites to The International 2018. As the winner of the best esports event of the year at the Spia Asia – Asia’s Sports Industry Awards & Conference in 2017 – this year’s ESL One Genting promises to be even bigger and better than in 2017 and this would be a great opportunity for a real life ‘gaming experience’.

ESL has forged a multiyear collaboration with Resorts World Genting for the second year running after ESL One Genting 2017 as part of the expansion of the esports scene in Southeast Asia with further plans in the future.

image

A press conference was held at the Genting International Showroom, Resorts World Genting ahead of the event. Both Frank Sliwka, Chief Operating Officer at ESL Asia and Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment Kevin Tann from Resorts World Genting were at the press conference to give their respective speeches, followed by a screening of the ESL One aftermovie 2017 and a photo and Q&A session. Numerous Dota 2 cosplayers were around to bring the fantastic champions of Dota 2 to life.

“Following ESL One Genting 2017, which we saw being a huge success amongst enthusiastic young millennials at the event, Resorts World Genting is proud to be the host as the venue sponsor for the second year running,” said Kevin Tann, Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment at Resorts World Genting. “Esports is recognized as the next big thing in marketing and the size of the global esports audience has rapidly grown. One-fifth of the world is said to actively play video games for an average of an hour a day. This is a complex and fast-changing universe, and we are eager to be part of it. Through ESL One Genting, we hope to connect with esports fans in an authentic way—a way that delivers added value to their experience and to the sport.”

“After our first installment in 2017, we already knew that it wouldn’t be our last event in Genting. The passion we have witnessed from the community on-site and the huge support from our partners at Resorts World Genting showed us how enthusiastic the Malaysian Dota 2 fans are,” said Frank Sliwka, ESL Asia Chief Operating Officer at ESL. “We are excited to work with RWG in the future to further establish esports in the Southeast Asia region to bring our content to people from all over the world.

The ESL One broadcast team for 2018 features an exciting team of notable faces from the world of esports to bring fans the Dota 2 live action. Eri Newman, who has hosted multiple ESL One tournaments including ESL One Manila 2016 in his home country, will be leading the talent team as stage host. Paul “Redeye” Chaloner as desk host and sideline reporter Jacob “SirActionSlacks” Kanner are familiar faces to the Dota 2 community. Owen “Odpixel” Davies and Austin “Capitalist” Walsh will complete the line-up as commentators to add their thrilling and witty observations to the game.

In 2017, more than 5,000 fans attended ESL One Genting on each of the three main event days, whereas over 11.4 million viewers consumed around 4.5 million hours of content online. The two teams Newbee and Digital Chaos fought their way up to the Grand Finals, delivering thrilling matches. It was Digital Chaos who eventually took home the ESL One trophy and US$125,000 in prize share.

For those who did not manage to get tickets for the almost sold-out main event, a group stage public viewing at the Genting International Showroom will be available for the preliminary rounds leading up to the finals from 23-25 January. Tickets are priced at RM20 for 3 days access.

Balm Bayi Tok Syed, A Natural Remedy for Cough and Flu

So I’ve been coughing like crazy these few days due to the changing weather. I couldn’t sleep very well and when I do fall asleep, I’d be awaken by my own coughing.

And as usual, being me, I complained alot on social media to friends and stuff and they got really concerned about me.

image

And so, one of my friend recommended me this, Tok Syed Baby Balm. She said it works wonder on coughing fits and flu, especially for babies.

image

While it is actually intended for babies who have coughing fits, flu this baby balm can be use for all walks of life and therefore the balm works adults like me too.

image

When I got my hands on this Balm Bayi Tok Syed, I was expecting it to smell unpleasant but surprisingly, it doesn’t even smell close to nasty like the usual balm that I’m familar with. In fact, the smell is pretty much fragrant and quite soothing.

image

Checking the ingredients, the balm contains Beeswax, Virgin Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil and Essential Oils. Basically, I concluded that this is somewhat an aroma theraphy kind of balm.

Finding the Balm Bayi Tok Syed rather appealing to my sense, I decided to give it a try after having a hot shower and go straight to sleep. Using it is pretty much straight forward, just apply it on your back, on your chest area or on the T-zone of your face. The same applies if you are using this Balm Bayi Tok Syed on your babies or toddlers. Just gently apply the balm on the said areas.

I’ve been using this for almost a week now and I kinda sleep better. I wouldn’t say that my cough is totally eliminated as it will be a total lie, but my coughing fits is noticeably reduced and I don’t wake up to my own cough anymore, which is already a huge relief. The best thing about this that Balm Bayi Tok Syed doesn’t stink and doesn’t feel as if you’ve put something hot on your skin and I woke up smelling as if I’ve worn perfume to sleep. I’m not a morning person but this helps to improve my mood when I wake up too, giving me a much more positive boost earlier in the day. It is also quite moisturizing on the skin and I swear that the skin area that I applied the balm feels smoother too.

Overall, I’m one happy camper and definitely will continue using this balm, especially before going to sleep.

Should you have babies who have trouble sleeping because they have coughing fits or runny nose, you might want to give this a go.

Where to Eat Seafood in Selangor: Ombak Kitchen

I’m petite in size and that could possibly give everyone the impression that I’m constantly on a diet and watching my figure, but truthfully, I’m actually none of those diet freak. It’s the other way around, actually. I’m a true blue foodie that’s pretty much a glutton. I enjoy all sort of food, but if there’s one thing that tops the list, it has to be seafood. Fresh seafood.

Growing up by the beach in Penang, Malaysia, I am very particular when it comes to seafood. It has to be fresh from the sea and nothing less. Living in Kuala Lumpur, I have to say that finding fresh seafood at a reasonable price to eat is kinda difficult. But lucky for me, Selangor is just half an hour drive away from my place and there are plenty of places that’s offering fresh seafood at a very reasonable price over there.

image

One of the places in Selangor that’s offering fresh seafood is Ombak Kitchen.

image

The restaurant is located somewhere quiet and serene in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam.

image

First impression that I have about this place that it’s quite a laid back place and really great for gatherings with family and friends.

image

Apart from that, the restaurant is also hosting live band performance, with an open mic concept. Nor sure on which days, though, but if you are ever there and wishes to perform can just approach the sound engineer and serenade away. My husband and I are into this sort of thing; dancing and singing in public is never a problem for us. And so we find this concept really entertaining and fun.

Open mic session at Ombak Kitchen, Selangor

Uploaded by K Network Media on 2018-01-03.

Here’s my husband performing ‘It’s Now or Never’ by Elvis Presley during our most recent visit to Ombak Kitchen. I would have joined him and sing a duet, like we usually do at open mic places but unfortunately I wasn’t really feeling so well that day and had to forgo singing on the top of my lungs that day. Such a shame. It was new year’s eve too.

image

Anyway, enough about the environment. Let’s start talking about food. Now, the place is not exactly a fine dining concept kinda place though the food could have rivaled something that came out from Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen.

image

Here in Ombak Kitchen, there’s no table rules. No cutleries will be given as the concept is that you eat with your hands apt with their tagline is ‘pakai tangan jer’ which is literally eat with your hands in Bahasa Malaysia. Here’s me, getting ready to dig in.

image

We ordered a selection of their Bubble Teas, Mojito and some appetizer to kick off our appetite. Being a tea lover, I hot to say that I love their bubble teas. Slightly on the sweet note though, so if you don’t want it to be too sweet, just request for less sugar upon ordering.

image

A closer look at the appetizers that we ordered; Fried mushrooms and garlic bread. The fried mushrooms were adeptly fried and makes a really addictive finger food. The garlic bread on the other hand, was good on it’s own but would make a better pair with some soup.

image

Here’s our boiled in Zesty Lemon Butter Garlic sauce being poured out from the bucket, straight onto our table for our enjoyment. Like I mentioned earlier, you’re supposed to enjoy them as it is, and therefore, no plates or cutleries will be given. So yes, feel free to go messy.

image

Our boiled seafood in Zesty Lemon Butter Garlic sauce.

image

A closer look at our boiled seafood; there’s plenty of assorted seafood in it, crustaceans, shells and also spotted in the meal are brocolli florets alongside with boiled potatoes and some corns. The boiled seafood meal also comes with a bowl of rice for each dining person.

image

Need help peeling off the shells from your crabbies? Just ask the service crew to help you out. They’ll get it done for you in no time.

Here’s my husband enjoying the food.
