Review: BeautyFoot Day 2

My bad for not updating!!! I admit I've been lazy =/ After washing the gel off, my feet felt like it was coated with a tight layer of wax lol. The next day, I saw skin cracks forming all over my toes.

I tried picking them but it's difficult so I let them be XD;;Day 3 is where the magic (and horror) begins! *_*b

Review: BeautyFoot Day 1

Yay another chance to review a product! Last month I scored a chance to review BeautyFoot after participating in a poll from OnlyBeauty. BeautyFoot is a painless treatment to remove all the hardened dead skin off your feet. It's main ingredient, organic fruit acid penetrates the layer of dead skin cells and decomposes the desmosomes which holds together the healthy layers and the dead skin cells which leads to natural peeling.

My BeautyFoot sample from OnlyBeauty =D
Instructions on how to use
Inside is a sock-like plastic filled with gel =D
Open the packaging and slip your feet in. Let the gel soak your feet for the next 2 hours *starts shuffling around the house*.
Once the 2 minutes is up, just wash off the gel and just wait for the magic to begin! I'll continue each day's progress in different entries. Some might find it gross but it's just skin man! Not as though I'm peeling a scab >w<;;

Esmeria Alpine Willowherb Range Review

Today has been a great day so I decided to blog a bit about Esmeria's Alpine Willowherb range. I took quite a long break from blogging since I was having trouble expressing myself and my busy schedule can't allow me to sit down and mull over what to write. Anyways, I received my long awaited samples from Esmeria and when I meant long awaited, it was to the point I've forgotten that I requested for those samples XD;;

The samples arrived in a customized packing just the right size for the sachets and the RM5 voucher. Way to go to tempt me to purchase the product ><
Esmeria is the first Malaysian Ecocert certified skin care brand. their aim is to have personal care products that are both eco-friendly and affordable! I requested my sample through their website and you'll have to answer the quiz which prescribes a suitable range for you. My skin is forever oily as far as I've known so it's no surprise that I got the Alpine and Willowherb range.

The Alpine Willowherb range is for Oily and Acne skin and the range comes with the 3 basics, cleansing gel, toner and moisturizing solution. I'll only be reviewing the cleansing gel and moisturizing solution.

Alpine Willowherb Purifying Cleansing Gel
Cleans and purify oily and acne prone skin with Esmeria's Purifying Cleansing Gel.
Gentle amino acid and sugar derived cleansing agents remove sebum from the skin without stripping away natural moisture.
Alpine Willowherb reduces oiliness calms sore and irritated skin while New Zealand Totarol extract offers powerful anti-blemish action.
This purifying cleanser soothes and reduces oiliness.

First thing that I noticed was that the sample sachet I receive was made from paper so I gave it +2 points! Firstly, it's recyclable and secondly, it's MUCH easier to tear the sachet off since our hands will be wet by the time we want to open the sachet to use. 

The gel texture was a lot smoother compared to other gel cleansers I've used. I suspect it's because of the aloe vera leaf juice which was one of the ingredients that made the gel 'glide' easily over my face. The way I described it seems funny but it's the best I can do =(. The sachet I received last about 3-4 days and within that period, I noticed that my face looked less red and my pimples shrunk a little =). It didn't help much with the oil controlling as my face was back to being oily after 2 hours.

Alpine Willowherb Purifying Moisturizing Solution
Soothe and purify oily and acne prone skin.
The wholesome combination of Aloe Vera, Alpine Willowherb and New Zealand Totarol Extract offers soothing, long lasting moisturization, a reduction in oiliness and helps prevent acne.
Esmeria's Moisturising Solution delivers non-oily, pure moisturisation.
I love the smell of the moisturizer as it's very mild and smells like those aromatherapy oils used during massage. It helped lull me to sleep 8D. So instead of applying it right after toner, I apply it right before going to bed lol. Other than that, there's nothing much I can talk about the moisturizer XD;;

Latest Buys Because I'm Bored

While people are busy at Animangaki or Anicom, I woke up late with tons of washing to do so decided to stay home and now I'm dying from boredom *sigh*. Trying to remove the eyeliner stain from my Seigaku jersey but it hasn't been working so far grrrrr. Since we're on the topic of my cosplay stuffs, I'm just gonna show a little shopping I did for my cosplay.
NYX lipsticks!
I was looking for a nude lipstick for Ryoma and figure it'll be cheaper than buying from the pharmacy. On top of the nude lipstick, I also picked up a frosty pink lipstick on the way just to make the best out of the PosLaju charges.
2 NYX lipsticks in shade Circe and Harmonica
I was torn between the shade Honey and Circe as I've tried Honey before and it fitted me perfectly but Circe has always been a choice among most of my friends. One thing I leaned from my purchase is that the swatches on the website can't be trusted!!!

Swatches from their main site.
Circe seems to be chocolate brown while Harmonica is like a Strawberry Milk kind of pink. Slightly darker than the actual product colors. The magic continues when I tried swiping it! As I suspected, Circe was too dark on my lips but damage controlled with just dabbing a bit off my compact powder to my lips and whalla! Perfect blending~

Harmonica was a bit of a downer. I saw the swatches from other blogs and it seemed like a really nice color but when I tried it on I looked like a ganguro lacking the dark foundation. I looked terrible so no photos were snapped XD;; The color might look better if I combine it with a dark colored lipgloss. I'll try experimenting the posting up a makeup test T_T;;

Kou Xiang Bak Kut Teh

Suppose to share this last week but I got lazy thanks to.... GINTAMAAAAA. Swing's brother has kindly lent me his external and I leeched 200+ episodes of Gintama and other rubbish XD so see me quiet for a month or so 8D.

During the raya holidays, I ate nothing but Chinese food >_<. We decided to try for some Bak Kut Teh that night and found quite a number of stores in Taman Connaught. If you tried Foursquaring there, you'll find 6 or 7 BKT places XD;;
I had to ask Jared to read the name which is another reason why this post was delayed @_@
The shop occupies outside a closed coffee shop. I didn't get a name of the coffee shop but if it helps, it's beside BHP petrol station. 
The store with all their pork on display
This is the first time I've seen a Bak Kut Teh store display the meat for everyone too see @_@ It's a good thing though since people can see how fresh it is =D
Our portion of lean meat for 2. The serving is a bit different compared to other stores. This doesn't come with lettuce, taufu or mushrooms. This pot has nothing but lean meat.
Tau pok
Meal not balanced without vege~ It was bloody hell fresh!
And for the finale, STEW PORKKKKK. God this tasted good and it was bloody expensive, RM22 but so delicioussss *drools*
Total came up to about RM60+ for the 3 of us. So pricey but that's because of the stew port ;__; Wouldn't mind coming back for the pork though! XD

Kou Xiang 100% Klang Bak Kut Teh
147, Jalan Sarjana,
Taman Connaught, Cheras
Opens at night, near BHP petrol station

Tenipuri 100 Song marathon Part 1/10

I just finished watching the recently released OVA and I found this video from the same user

Tenipuri 100 song marathon AAAAAAAA *insert super loud screams here* It's like a dream to hear them sing live!!!! I'm surprised that Naru Kawamoto (Takeshi Kawamura) and Masaya Onosaka (Takeshi Momoshiro) sound so bloody good live!!! All of them are so hyper and jumpy and even after 10 years they still sound fantastic!!!!

I also just found out that the DVD cost almost RM400 *goes cry a river* so I'll have to settle ripping from Youtube and finding a way to combine them!!!

Ipoh: Onsen & Food

Selamat Hari Raya peopleeee~!!!! >w< It is kinda late from me and I'm sorry T3T. While everyone is busy visiting their relatives and friends, I've been celebrating Raya like CNY by feasting on more Chinese food OTL. I just realized today that I've yet to eat any Lemang with Rendang =( On the first day of Raya, we went on a one day trip to Ipoh mainly to go play in the Tambun Hot Springs.

Found out that the hot springs is open all day but if we want to go to the hot springs only then we can only enter from 6pm to 10pm. To enter in the day time, we have to purchase the the full theme park tickets =_=;; which includes the wet park and hot springs but it's an extra RM30 per person. Decided it was not worth going to the wet park so we went sight seeing around Ipoh first.
First stop, Kek Lok Tong!
Where we met a cave dog!
I spent most of the time there, stalking the dog trying to get a good picture x_X Not very friendly but it doesn't bite either =)
We covered monkeys
Birds.... lucky shot this one...
More greenery and teh tarik waters
More monkeys, this one manage to get into the cave while the rest of the group was outside.
Last shot before we head to lunch
We decided on bean sprouts and chicken for lunch since it might be too late to head to the city by the time we're done with the hot springs. Funny thing about Ipoh is that the same shops will be in the same row. All the Taugeh Ayam shops are along one street. Same thing for funeral parlors too 8D;; There can be 7-8 funeral parlors in one street XD;; That was where we ended up parking since the Taugeh Ayam Street was packed to the brim.
Peopleeeeeee >A<
Looks like everyone had the same thought.... Lou Wong and Onn Kee are the top 2 Taugeh Ayam stores. We decided to go to Onn Kee instead as it's slightly less packed compared to Lou Wong. It took us about 20 minutes to get seated @_@ because each table was 'guarded' by the next group and another hour before our food came because they messed up our orders =(.
Chicken that I can never appreciate and uber crispy bean sprouts~ XD I'm missing them right now >w<
By the time we were done, it was almost 4pm!!! So we took a quick detour to find a clean toilet before heading back to Tambun.
The entrance to Tambun~!
Bridge leading to the entrance
And it's still packed!!!!!
Changing in the toilets was another nightmare since it was wet and crowded with people but thankfully I've learnt to change using only a towel *o*~ oh and an oversized shirt too XD;; Locker rentals were at cut throat prices so we piled all our valuables and change of clothes into the locker and brought our bags around. It was RM10 per locker!!! and it was small! D; Sunway I hate you so >_>. After 7, there's less people. Got some nice shots at night with the pretty lights~ The hot spring has a few pools with temperatures ranging from 37C to 45C.
Main pool that everyone crowds over, temperature is at 37C
The Crystal Pool which is 40C. This pool has the lion sprouting water from its mouth. Very nice to sit under it and let the water massage your head XD
The foot spa with pebbles that you see on those reflexology paths on the surface of the pond. Very painful to walk T_T
Lastly, the hottest and the smallest pool know as the jacuzzi. Waters are about 43C but we all think it's a lie because it was much hotter and feels almost scalding hot when we dipped our feet in. The orange lights in the pool made it look like we're dipping in lava *_*
Best shot at the hot springs, a geyser sprouting out right above the steam room *_* It comes every hour so we had to keep in check with the guard on the time so that I can get the shot XD
After we're satisfied with our lobster dips, we went for dinner at Kam Wan Food Court, also known as Tung Ku Teng. I love this food court and I used to visit the place for supper. It's quite lively at night like 118 or Ming Tien XD;;
I started with dessert first and it ruined my appetite OTL. The caramel was burnt so it was bitter sweet ._.
Audrey's rojak
Super delicious deep fried prawn paste!! ;_;
Fried eggs with oysters~ Eggs were fluffy <3
Dried curry mee which was oh-so-good as well but the dessert ruined my appetite so Jared had to help me finish it. I'm sorry sayang!!! ;A;
My only souvenir from Ipoh, instant Green Tea Latte rofl XD;;
Lesson from our trip, we'll need to be careful with who we invite next time OTL.

Between Bleeding or Aching

After 3 years of having braces, I think my teeth are throwing a silent tantrum.... My teeth started aching whenever I eat cold or hot things. Now this is a huge problem since whatever I eat is either cold or hot unless I eat everything in room temperature >_>;; so I picked up Sensodyne a couple of weeks ago.
I just wanted to make an entry to show pretty packaging 8D
Picked up the smallest (and so happens the most expensive) tube I could find. t's about an extra RM3 compared to their standard pink or green range. There's no clear difference to me other than the packaging and the prices, all of them end up protecting your teeth ~_~. I bought this tube just because of its unique printing so yea... kill me! DX
Looks like face wash lol
The tube doesn't look like toothpaste too @_@ I thought it was a face wash and it doesn't help that the toothpaste is now together with my skin care bottles XD;; All my care items are a bunch of tongue twisting brands *_* I now use Sebamed face wash, Systema toothbrush and Sensodyne toothpaste @A@;; pening babi sia....

The toothpaste does help a lot with my teeth but the toothpaste doesn't lather up like normal toothpaste so there's no 'lubricant' when I brush my teeth which ends up making my gums bleed since my toothbrush bristles are a lot smaller. The only way I can think of avoiding bleeding gums is to brush even softer =_=;; and hope the dirt gets scrubbed off OTL

Dammit, cosplay and work has been taking me away from my blogging lol. I've been so busy preparing for the photoshoot last week. Based on the characters and costume, it may seem easy but what we wanted to achieve was hard =/. I took up gym just to tone up for my character. 2 months in the gym and there's a slight difference. I'm glad it all paid off =). I spent about 2-4 weeks scouting for the perfect tennis bag because the one that came from Taobao was a badminton bag @A@;;
See how small Audrey's bag issss >A<
Next was tons and tons and TONS of research to perfect our poses to be as close as our characters. Thank god both of us have basic (VERY basic) tennis training back in high school so we just have to practice and to get as close as possible.
Yes squash court is our best friend.
So... results of our months of hard work?
Thin legssssss Well not stick thin yet but I'm happy at how they look in photos *_* Photo by Reina
Back shot of me cuz I don't look 12 or a shota >w<
Now I'm waiting for the action shots *w* We realized we missed out a hell a lot of things so most likely there's a second shoot coming if we're hardworking enough *_*

The only thing I like about living in Malaysia? The gazillion holidays we get for the ever stupid reasons XD Today was a holiday for me *w* but some of my friends were unfortunate to have to go to work today haha. Still, I still didn't ditch my routine. Woke up at 8.45 and went to gym for my dose of workouts then flew to Bangi to collect my tennis bag.
Old and new side by side. Wide lens is wide *_*
I've been scouting for this bag at almost all the tennis shops. Well not really all, I targeted the ones that are highly recommended by the tennis community since I can bargain with these shops and they're quite reasonably priced. I wanted this bag for my cosplay project and also as an upgrade since my old bag is too small. I bought the Yonex Tournament Series 2010 for RM96 after discount which was a good bargain =D
6 racket compartment
Even though I only have 2 rackets, the other compartment is for me to store tennis balls, towel and water. There's still space for my shoes and valuables too! :3 So I can pretty much bring only this bag to the court.
Cat resting at the mamak when I was having lunch
Kitten hiding under the rack <3
Came back around 2pm and made some calls to see which commissioner of oath is available to sign my loan forms. It was cheaper than I expected but now I discovered that my documents have to be signed too =_=;; so I'll probably have to take leave to settle it then immediately submit them *sigh*. 

Oh! and last night me and Johnny were treated buka puasa and premiere tickets to a movie!
Guess? =D
Yes I'm a Gleek!
But first, we gotta fill our stomachs!
The makan was buffet style filled with a mixture of Malay/Chinese/Western dishes. Nothing much to rave about there but I particularly like one of the desserts.
Sago and gula melaka
The dessert was nice and sweet but I find the sago too sticky so the gula melaka doesn't coat nicely around the sago when I cut the sago. The movie started at 9pm mostly snippets of the tour concert, fan testimonials and behind the scenes with the cast. I'm a bit sad that they didn't play some of the really good songs >< and Sue Sylvester didn't make an appearance!!! Probably she thought that the movie sucks so bad that she didn't wanna play a part of it XD. I really enjoyed the fan testimonials, only thing I hope is that it's not fake XD;;
