Butterfly Project 4th Birthday with Jerylnn'L

Image
Can't imagine how time flies. It's Butterfly Project Malaysia's 4th Birthday last month. Butterfly Project is a community for beauty & lifestyle bloggers to gather & create content together.

I remember I started my blogging journey way earlier as a 'personal diary'. I've only started blogging seriously in 2012/13 and the Butterfly Project was part of it. Without realising it, it's been a 4-year journey with them.

As an introvert, I'm lucky to be part of this community. Apart from my group of close friends & Instagram community, I'm glad that Butterfly Project has connect me with individuals with similar passion.

Not only did I manage to meet more people, Butterfly Project has connected me with a group of close friends.

I met Melody at Butterfly Project 2013 X'mas Potluck & Ashleigh at the founder, Tammy's birthday in 2014. We clicked immediately and have been hanging out together ever since.

Back to the 4th Birthday Party... …

Sasaran Beach - Things you need to know

Image
Sasaran beach has created quite a buzz when people started sharing about this place where you can get the best reflection photo of the sky. The place is called 天空之镜 in Chinese or which means mirror of the sky. Some called it Malaysia's version of Salar de Uyuni, a popular salt flat in Bolivia. You don't get salt there but sand & water.


Where is it?
Sasaran is actually a place in the middle of the sea and it only appears when the tide is low. So, it's not really a beach beach. It's situated between Kuala Selangor & Klang. To go there, you need to go to Kuala Selangor (almost reaching Sekinchan).

GPS N03°15.695' E101°18.659'

When can you go?
You can't just go anytime you like. Within a month there's only 5-10 specific days that you can go because you need to wait for the tide to be low enough before the 'beach' appears.

The best reference is the Lunar Calendar, it's 2 days before & after 初一 or 十五. For the Muslim buddies, you can ref…

Himalaya Shampoo Review

Image
I went on a business trip to India last year. Guess what I did. You will never guess it right...


I got my Indian colleague to help me buy Himalaya shampoos. I kid you not as it's almost RM10 cheaper over there than in Malaysia for the small bottle. Why is it cheaper in India? That's because India is the country of origin for Himalaya.

Why didn't I go buy it myself? Because I got no time lor... I was stuck in meetings and by the time we finished dinner, it was close to 9pm and as a solo female traveler, I don't think it's safe for me to go out so late.


So why Himalaya?

My sister and I both have hair fall problem. She is now a 100% Himalaya user as it has proven result for her. Her hair fall condition has improved tremendously.


Whereas for me, I'm still exploring different shampoos maybe because I'm still blogging and open to explore different products. Most importantly I have lesser brand loyalty. Or maybe you should say that I'm loyal to a few brands wit…

My skin recovery journey with Eau Thermale Avène

Image
For someone with sensitive skin, I consider myself lucky as I don’t have pimple/acne issues. So when I had pimple outbreak back in December, I thought that is was just because of PMS or age is catching up. I was completely wrong when I started spotting red patches on my face. Went to the doctor and it was identified as an allergic reaction (not sure to what) and had a steroid jab. Immediately everything subsided except for 1 pimple on my forehead (right smack in between my brows). I usually don’t do much when I had pimples as they go away on their own but this round, I was completely wrong…


It continues growing to a huge one and this photo was taken  when I was still ignorance of the ‘pimple’
I went to the doctor and he said that I had a bacterial infection most likely the ‘staph infections’ and it was not a pimple. He said that it could be due to the previous allergic reaction and the bacteria had infected one of the rashes. He helped to remove the pus which is so thick and icky that…

Hacksaw Ridge & Split

Image
It's almost end of February. How many movies have you watch this year? Me, quite a number but I must say that so far the movie that is worthwhile watching are Split & Hacksaw Ridge.

Split

The synopsis of Split itself is interesting. It's a story of Kevin who has 23 split personalities and another soon to be released.


I've never notice the actor, James McAvoy before and I must admit that he's a really good actor. He is able to bring out the different characters through his expressions, body languages and his speech. It's so distinguishable and one can easily tell who he is at every moment.

Even though, there's only 5 actors/actresses in this movie, there's never a dull moment.

Rating: 5/7

Hacksaw Ridge

I was skeptical when I watched the trailer. I thought it's gonna be another slow movie with lots of conversation. The beginning of the movie was relatively slow but the moment the war starts... that's when I can't take my eyes off the screen.


I j…

New Year's Goal

Image
It's 2 days past Ditch New Year's Resolution Day (17 Jan). Have you gave up your resolution or still working on it?

Did you accomplish your resolutions last year? Are you like this:


OR this:


No matter who you are… if you have a goal, let’s try to work towards it.

Me? I'm the latter. I’ve signed up at Celebrity Fitness for a 1-year plan since last September with a very simple goal in mind: I need to exercise more often instead of doing none. I joined as a secondary with a friend to enjoy one of their promotion so this is not a sponsored post.

I was a newbie to the gym and I felt intimidated during my first few visits. I do not know what to do nor how to use the ‘machines’. And the worst was meeting people that I know in the gym. I felt like hiding.

True story but I overcome that after a few rounds and reading an article stating that most of the time people in the gym couldn’t be bother with others and of course, I had 3 sessions with a personal trainer who gave useful advic…
