AEON MALL Kuching Central, First Store in East Malaysia

April 17th, 2018 · 2 surrendered

AEON is going to open its door to shoppers on 20th April 2018. Was lucky to get a sneak peek of the place before it opened to the members at 1pm today. This is AEON Co. (M) Bhd. first mall in East Malaysia. Located along Jalan Keretapi, it’s so huge that you will not miss it *LOL* Housing more than 130 retail lots spread across three floors with 1800 car park bays that spread over five level of its multi-level parking.

As you know, you will find AEON very own supermarket and department store offering fresh groceries for your daily needs, trendy apparels for young and old, household furnishing and appliances for your home and office, and mouthwatering food and beverage to fill your tummy.

Do look out for TOPVALU – AEON’s global flagship private brand, known as the provider of affordable yet reliable Japanese products since 1994 has been AEON’s standard in delivering the best quality, safety and value to consumers across Asia with TOPVALU groceries, TOPVALU COLLECTION for versatile garments, TOPVALU HOME for the best selections of household furnishing and appliances for home.

There’s a lot of food counters such as ‘Ready to Cook’, ‘Salmon Counter’, ‘Marinated Counter’, ‘Premium Fruit Gift Pack’, ‘Cut Fruits & Juice Counter’, ‘Cheese Counter’, ‘Korean Kimchi Counter’, and ‘We Cook You Eat’ cooking station. The cooking station is what attracted me the most, it is something you cannot find anywhere else but in AEON, pretty interesting, will try it out when I’m there again.

The F&B selections with ready-to-eat light bites, easy preparation meals, and authentic Japanese cuisine such as sushis, assorted tempuras, pizzas, cooked meats, hot snacks, assorted sandwiches, salads, and more. Not to forget variety of buns and pastries at ‘La Boheme’ Bakery.

Here’s some views of the department store, lots to see. You will have to go there to see for yourself. The prices are not too high. There’s a section selling skincare products, looks very interesting but didn’t have time to take a look at it.

With the launch of AEON MALL Kuching Central, AEON CO. (M) BHD. now has a total of 27 AEON MALLs and 35 AEON Stores nationwide.

Go sign up up for the membership card tomorrow(18th April, 10am-8pm) and the day after tomorrow(19th April, 10am-6pm) so that you can have a look at the place first. I foresee on the grand opening, the crowd would be massive *LOL* Check out their FB page https://www.facebook.com/aeonretail.my/ for more details.

Guerisson 9-Complex Cream

April 10th, 2018 · Nobody Surrendered

I discovered Guerisson 9-Complex in Althea and Hermo. Was quite shocked to see how much good reviews this product is having. It took me quite awhile to decide to buy it to try. You can get it now from Watsons and Sasa in Malaysia too. I bought this from Althea. You can check out its official site for more information, https://www.guerisson.my/guerisson-9-complex-cream

I’ve seen so many types of horse oil, felt kind of icky. Finally got the courage to try this and I’m glad I did not try the others and also beware of fakes out there. Too many fakes out there. Make sure you get it from the websites and the two shops I mentioned above. The photos I posted here is to show you the features of genuine product. You can google “genuine guerisson 9 complex” and find many bloggers sharing how to spot the real and fake cream.

I will share on my experience using this cream instead. This cream claimed to be able to do the following:
72-hour Moisturization
Firming Power
Smooth Skin
Best in scar reducing

The scent was very pleasant and the texture is just like butter. Use it sparingly, just a little will work wonder. If you have normal, oily or combination skin, use very little, don’t be too greedy. When it is applied on the skin, it has emollient effect. If you are staying in places where the air is dry, this is God-sent! I tried it myself when traveling to those dry places or sleeping in air-conditioned room, no itchiness and flaky skin developed on the face and other body parts. It can be used anywhere you feel it’s dry. My friend even applied it on her lips when she was in Japan, she suffered very bad cracked lips and it helped a lot.

Rich in Vitamin E & botanical extracts; namely peppermint leaf, apple mint leaf extracts, rosemary & sage extracts the said formula is safe enough to apply on babies. Guerisson 9 complex penetrates deep into skin where the steroids & preservatives free formula improves damaged skin by providing the most required nutrients. With almost zero side effects, it remains to be one of the best Korean scar removal creams that has been tried & tested for the claims made.

As I don’t want to contaminate the cream in the jar, I foresee that it will last me quite awhile because only very little amount is needed and I do not use it everyday, I transferred some to small container and store the rest in the original jar.

I noticed improvement to my skin. I have few pigmentation spots on my cheek area and it is lighter now. My pores are smaller too. I did not develop any sensitiveness to the cream. Hence, it is all good. I highly recommend buying it.

Peripera Blur Pang Peach Milk Blur

April 4th, 2018 · Nobody Surrendered

Peripera Blur Pang Peach Milk Blur is from korea. This primer is claimed to be able to achieve an airbrushed finishing, as if all your flaws are blurred away.

The one I’m sharing here is Peach. The packaging is so cute, just like a mini milk cartoon. I got this from Watsons, priced at about RM40+ for 50ML.

There are 3 different types. Each has different function:
Peach Milk Blur: SPF30PA++ protection, tone-up with CC cream effect.
Banana Milk Blur: Natural coverage tone-up effect.
Pure Milk Blur: Tone-up effects for face and body parts that look dull and sallow.

Peripera Blur Pang range consists of these ingredients:
NEW ZEALAND COLOSTRUM: Contains colostrum that was milked within 72 hours in the pristine New Zealand. The freshness of first milk provides brightening and skin barrier strengthening benefits to deliver clear and soft skin textures, just like a baby.
JEJU GOAT MILK: Nourishes skin and an ingredient that is most similar to breast milk; contains 28% more of inorganic salt selenium compared to normal milk, for even healthier skin.
VITA COMPLEX10: A complex of 10 vitamins including B5, B7, B9, C, E, A, B1, B2, B3 and B4 for healthy and more radiant skin.

It also claimed to have 98% peach extract (14,000 ppm).

The smell of peach is strong. That’s always the case when it comes to products with peach fragrance. However, it doesn’t bother me.

I applied to half of my face to see the effect. The one on the left has only my moisturizer while the one on the right is applied with Peach Milk Blur. The cream texture is quite hard to spread and left sticky layer on my face.

Looking at the photo, the skin condition without Peach Milk Blur looks better. However, the primer did blur out some spots on my face. It’s a bit too white for my skin tone but once it settled down which took hours, it will look more natural.

After applying it all over the face, I proceeded with my usual makeup routine. The stickiness of the primer was still there. Looking at these photos, it did blur out my spots which usually can be seen in photos. That’s the only good thing about it. Anyway, you can also use this on its own on your lazy day.

Repurchase will not be considered. There are many good reviews about it but too bad it doesn’t go well with me. I dislike the texture and the stickiness. My skin also felt suffocated using it. A bit of itch developed at the end of the day.

Hot Bowl White Curry Mee

March 27th, 2018 · Nobody Surrendered

Been to Penang so many times and guess what… It’s my first time having their white curry mee. We went to Hot Bowl White Curry Mee located at 58-C, Jalan Rangoon, 10400 Penang. Their off day is on Monday.

White curry mee is indeed white. Main ingredient of the broth is sweet and savoury coconut milk.

I forgot to take photo of the chili paste. There’s a container of chili paste for you to add into the broth. You can adjust the spiciness based on how spicy you can tolerate. Don’t be too generous, start little and build it up. I added very little(just few drops) and it was so spicy, if you cannot take the heat, I guess you’ll have to forego the chili paste. However, the ommph will not be there because the chili paste really level up the taste of the broth. If I did not have a cough that time, I would have added more.

The special thing about this curry mee is that you can find coagulated duck blood as one of the ingredients. Tofu puffs, prawns, cuttlefish, cockles, a mix of vermicelli and yellow noodles made up the rest of this dish. Small bowl is priced at RM5.90 while the big bowl is RM6.90.

Truth to be told, I prefer this than Penang Laksa and Har Mee.

Aside from white curry mee, we also ordered other dishes, Meatball Soup and Ipoh Hor Fun with Boneless Steamed Chicken.

Do try this dish out when you are in Penang. This is just one of the places that served this dish. I believe you can find it easily around Penang.

Maybelline Hyper Tight Liner

March 19th, 2018 · Nobody Surrendered

I purchased Maybelline Hyper Tight Liner after I saw it on Taiwanese variety show, Queen. Since I ran out of eyeliner, I decided to try this out. I bought it for about RM25 when it was on offer. Original price is more than RM30.

It comes in this kind of packaging which is different from the normal box or no packaging. All the list of ingredients and usage instructions are on the packaging.

There you go… This is the liner. Unscrew the cap and and will reveal this…

The flex-tip is like a marker pen. The angle is 15 degree which is very convenience to draw on your waterline. The tip is so fine that it can draw a very thin line and reach tight spot. Just keep adding on if you want thicker line.

The first time I used it, it didn’t smudge. However, it smudged on me on my second usage. Hmm… I didn’t even do any rigorous activities, didn’t even sweat, yet it smudged. I guess next time need to dab a bit of black eyeshadow so that it will not smudge. The liner only comes in Jet Black, no other colour. If it comes in brown, then at least the smudge won’t be that obvious.

On removing part, it is very easy to remove with makeup remover.

Worth buying? Price and design, yes. However, it’s not smudgeproof. This is one important aspect I look for in an eyeliner. Not waterproof as claimed. Disappointed. Well… No repurchase. For now, I’ll covered it with my dark brown or black eyeshadow to prevent excessive smudging.
