Sarawak Grand Timber & SME’s Expo 2013 happened last weekend and I only blog about it now! This is the rate I’m going in blogging these days -.-”
Went there to have a look with my family. Visitors were required to register. It’s not as simple as just filling in the form, they even print out a name tag for you! WOW! So pro!
Related goverment agencies setting up their booths.
Will just let the photos do the talking ;p How lazy I am now?
All sort of furniture can be found there. Aside from that, lots of food to sample. My first time eating honeycomb. Our very own honey from Sarawak.
Lots to see inside and outside the hall.
It only opened to public till 6pm, we spent almost 2 hours there. I’m surprised with how long we spent our time there. Not bad, lots to see.

I got Kanebo Freshel All-in-one Whitening UV Gel (RM67) from attending Kate’s event organized by Everrise last week. I’m so glad I went and I’m so glad they included this product as a door gift! If not I will never know such product exists and even if I knew, I don’t think I will buy it as it’s in the price range I’m not willing to spend money on and I’m not familiar with this product too.
My morning skincare routine can be a rather long one. Have been “suffering” for ages. After discovering Kanebo Freshel All-in-one Whitening UV Gel, the daily morning skincare routine gone down from at least 15 minutes to less than 3 minutes! Amazing! This products has 5 functions (lotion, essence, emulsion, cream, mositurizing makeup base) in one tub! In fact, this bottle has 6 functions, there’s UV filter! So there’s sunscreen in this tub too.
Here’s my normal morning skincare routine:
Eye gel > Toner > serum(sometimes) > moisturiser > sunscreen
Eye gel > Kanebo Freshel All-in-one Whitening UV Gel
Crazy! No? Normally I waited rather long because I had to wait for serum and/or mosituriser to fully absorb before applying sunscreen. Then before applying makeup, I need to wait for the sunscreen to absorb. Now, no need for such wait. The gel is amazing, easy to spread and absord really fast. Left my skin so smooth to touch. Not sitcky or even shiny.
At the end of the day, my face still produce oil but not that much anymore and not feeling uncomfortable as usually I would feel rather uncomfortable as if my face had a layer of wax because of the combination of waterproof sunscreen and sebum.
Kanebo Freshel All-in-one Whitening UV Gel is now my must-have. If you don’t want to spend so much time in the morning doing your morning skincare routine, then this is something you must invest in. The tub is 80ml for RM67, 5 (rather 6) functions in one and will last you for ages! You only need a little. Not expensive at all. Imagine how much money you can save by not buying all the other products for your morning skincare routine. To me, it’s time that matters!

So many Korean brands have landed itself in Malaysia and even Kuching but not Missha. I bought this in Korea.
Currently using it but don’t really fancy it. It’s waterproof as claimed but it does not absorb much instead leaving my skin with a sticky layer. It’s also gave me pale complexion after applying it, not transparent at all, making me look rather pale and shiny. The only way to solve this problem is to apply face powder or foundation if I need to go out else I’ll just let it be if I’m staying home, no one will see anyway! HAHAH! It also acts as my makeup base.
Despite that, I’m still using it daily after my moisturizer as this is the only sunblock I have for the moment. I must finish it before investing in another brand. Not going back to it.

Was lucky to be invited to join the Kate Gold Party Experience at Magenta Restaurant last night.
Kate Makeup Demo was done by Kate International Makeup artist, Mr. Mikiya Hirai. He used the stunning “Goldosh Eyes” on the model’s eyes. The gold theme was deliberate and meaningful as Kate’s distinctive persona is one of fun, party, sophistication and a touch of enigma. Sorry for the ugly photo, it’s too dark for me to take a decent photo with my camera without using flash, it was such harsh flash.
We had fun last night and I won myself a box of Kate’s products in the Q&A session. Also had a chance to take photos with Mr. Hirai.
The food we had last night. There’s appetiser and main course. No dessert though. The food was great but the beef (top right) wasn’t up to my expectation hehehe… Because I was expecting steak ;p
Aside from the food, demo, and game. There was also “Show Your Kate Style” contest by Everrise/Kate Valuable Customers who was selected from the lucky draw campaign/ The ladies were styled to present themselves in Kate style. These were the contestants and three was selected as the winner based on their performance on stage. Didn’t get to take any good photos of the winners because of the location where I was seated.
Left: The goodies I got after attending the event. WOW! HAPPY! Got the Goldish Eyes eyeshodow(RM59) and Slim Gel Pencil(RM44). You can actually find real 24k gold in the eyeshadow! There’s two sample sized products too namely Concealing Cover Powder Foundation(RM74) and Powderless Liquid(RM74). Gonna review it when I’m in the mood ;p
Right: Aother product was one of the FRESHEL multifunctional skincare range by Kanebo. Will review it when I got the chance to use it. I need to finish off whatever I’m using now to open a new product. It’s amzing with 5-in-1 functions, gonna save so much time!
Thanks Kate and Everrise for the golden experience.

Boo! Did you get a shock? HAHAHA!
Now, let’s blog a little bit about skincare. Haven’t do this for a long long time. I bought Wild Ferns Rotorua Mud Face Pack with Manuka Honey when I was in New Zealand. I bought this at the airport. New Zeealand is famous not only for its beautiful sceneries but also its skincare product made from honey and also geothermal mud.
The ultimate treatment for your skin. These face packs contain the absolute maximum content of Rotorua’s geothermal mud in its purest form and are enhanced with Active AAH650+ Manuka honey. The mud is creamy and velvety smooth and full of highly concentrated natural minerals to make it extremely therapeutic as well as detoxifying, purifying, healing and also remineralising. When combined with the powerful antibacterial and antioxidant properties of Manuka honey, it works to deeply cleanse the skin and restore tone and vitality so that your complexion is noticeably refreshed and revived.
I spent NZD19.95 for this. All together I bought 3 skincare products there. Will review the other two when I started using them which might be awhile ;p
It’s not that easy to use, it dries out really fast when the instructions stated that one should not let it dry before washing it off. So it practically means it has to be washed off immediately after application as you can see from the photo. I guess it’s because of the climate in Malaysia. Maybe I should apply more, a thick layer I guess.
Directions: Must be used on a clean skin. Apply evenly to the face avoiding the eye area and keeping clear of the hair line and mouth. Sit and relax for approximately 10 – 15 minutes while the face pack dries and draws out the impurities. It will start to feel tight and will gradually lighten in colour as it dries. When it is a mottled light and dark grey it is ready to remove. Do NOT allow it to dry to a complete light grey/white colour.
After using it, my face felt refreshed. Don’t forget to follow up with moisturiser.
