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. It’s waterproof though. Well… No repurchase I guess… For now, I’ll covered it with my dark brown or black eyeshadow to prevent excessive smudging.

Thai Pak Koong, Tanjong Tokong, Penang

March 12th, 2018 · 2 surrendered

Let’s visit another new tourist spot in Penang located at Tanjong Tokong. The temple is the oldest and most important temple in Penang. It’s been around for decades.

Many domestic and foreign tourists like to have their photos taken here. It’s popular among the lovebirds. All these sculptures are located at the beach area.

When night falls, the Avatar Secret Garden will light up with lights of many colours. You’ll need to do a little bit of stair climbing to view the beauty of the lights.

Aside from that, you can enjoy seafood at Pearl Garden Cafe located just next to the temple. The place was so packed when we were there over the weekend, best to make reservation. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for a table. You must order the prawn and crab when you dine there, you have no choice to say no. The prawn and crab are cooked with the most simplest method, grilled over charcoal and seasoned with salt. There are stalls around the area which you can order from but the prerequisite to dine-in is to order from the Pearl Garden Cafe. Was too hungry and forgot to take photo of the food.

Just a heads up, the road leading to this temple is quite narrow. Oh ya… Need to pay for parking your car at the compound.

Ultimeat and PizzBurger by Anchor Food Professionals at Osome

March 7th, 2018 · 2 surrendered

Love cheese!! Forget about the traditional pizza for the time being. Here’s something new. Only for limited time only and only available at Osome Wood Fired Pizza(Jalan Datuk Tawi Sli – Same block as Mita Cake House, before Boulevard Shopping Mall) in Kuching, Chillax Cafe & Bistro in Miri, and Bistecca & Bistro in Sibu.

The ambitious all-meat-based Ultimeat Pizza (RM18.99). OH MY! You see the cheese?!?! The pizza base is made entirely out of ground meat deep fried to crusty perfection before baked with Anchor mixed cheeses on top. Even though it’s deep fried, it’s not oily at all. I would recommend you to share. Food always taste good when you share it with your lovelies.

Next, it’s the meat-endowed-cheese-oozing PizzBurger (RM18.99) featuring a succulent grilled minced meat patty stuffed with Anchor Mozzarella Shredded Cheese, Anchor Colby and Cheddar Cheese and baked in light crust with Anchor Butter. See the cheese oozing? YUM!! Share this too!

Both products are made from chicken meat.

Don’t forget to ask for the free Pizzart Pizza Cutter when you order from Pizzart menu.

Here… Gonna share with you some pizzas and dessert you can find in Osome.

Freshly baked to perfection with generous toppings. If I’m not mistaken, the pizzas we had were 4 Elements and Molto Carne.

The dessert, Panna cotta is awesome! Rich and creamy without being too sweet. We were surprised as we were expecting it to be extremely sweet.

So… Don’t wait… Quickly go to Osome for the limited time Pizzart Menu. Otherwise, just try out anything there. The prices are very reasonable.

Entopia by Butterfly Farm Penang

February 27th, 2018 · 3 surrendered

It used to be known as butterfly farm, now known as Entopia.

Been to Penang few times before its renovation but never been there. Renovation was completed in 2015. Had an opportunity to visit Penang last month, we decided to go to Entopia for a visit.

First impression was WOW! Modern, well-maintained, and it does not feel like you’re in a tourism attraction in Malaysia.

A fun and educational place for family and even as a lone traveler. Get in touch with nature, seeing them close-up without going through the rugged paths. It’s awesome!

Opens Daily
9:00am – 7:00pm
(including weekends & public holidays)
*Last ticket sale and entry is at 5:30pm.

Entrance fee is reasonable. RM49/adult with MyKad, children and senior citizens with Mykad is RM20/pax; foreigner will be RM65/adult, children and senior citizens is RM45/pax.

There is so many sections and so much to see and learn.

I’ll just let the photos do the talking.

What you see here are not all, there’s more.

You’ll have to be there yourself to see it for yourself.

It is quite humid and hot there but after walking around, you’ll be led into air-conditioned exhibition area.

Many activities that children can participate when they visit the place.

Not just butterflies, there’s a lot of creatures such as frogs, spiders, scorpions, earth worms, cockroaches, beetles, snakes, insects, and more.

Learnt a lot from here. It’s fun to taking photos of the creatures in this place. A must-go if you like nature but hate the rugged part of it and great for family too.

You can get more details from their official site entopia.com
