It’s Not Just About Jamaica Blue Signature Blend & Blue Mountain Coffees Only

August 26th, 2019 · Nobody Surrendered

Did you know that Jamaica Blue Coffee has opened its door at CityONE Megamall, Kuching?

Jamaica Blue is not just about Jamaica Blue Signature Blend & Blue Mountain Coffees Only. If you are not into coffee or can’t take coffee just like me, there’s many non-caffeinated drinks available in the menu, not to forget a large selection of freshly prepared food too!

They recently launched a new menu called Escape & Refresh. They had added new food items such as Let’s Taco ‘Bout Fish, Jamaican Beef Patty, BBQ Jerk Chicken Wings, Asian Chicken Omelette, Sweet & Sour Chicken Wings, Jungali Chicken Wrap, Prawn Fettuccine, Mozzarella & Basil Stuffed Chicken, Soy Ginger Chicken with Rice, and Chicken Stuffed Avocado & Pistachio.

Was given the opportunity to try some of their food out. Going to share what I had when I was there:

Left: Breakfast Potato Hash with Mushroom & Tomato (RM18.40), a wholesome breakfast dish that consists of soft poached eggs, homemade potato cake, roasted tomato and sauteed mushrooms. Hmm… I think the tomato wasn’t roasted but I’m fine with it because I like both roasted and fresh tomato.

Right: Pasta Boscaiola (RM22.50) which we thought was Carbonara *LOL*. Apparently it’s not. It felt like the lighter version of Carbonara. You can opt for this if you don’t like the thick cream of Carbonara. The pasta consists of turkey slice, shallots in garlic cream sauce. If you are not fond of garlic, don’t worry, the taste of garlic wasn’t overpowering (I didn’t taste it) so it was agreeable with me because I don’t like garlic hahaha…

Left: BBQ Jerk Chicken Wings (RM17.90) is nicely baked and coated with sticky Jamaican BBQ sauce served with BBQ aioli.

Right: Jamaican Beef Patty (I forgot to find out about the price *LOL*) is made with crispy pastry filled with jerk pulled beef, mushrooms & beans.

Left: After a hearty meal, there’s always room for dessert, this is Sticky Date Pudding (I forgot about the price again!Hahaha!).

Right: If you can’t have enough at Jamaica Blue, you can bring them home and make a cuppa for yourself at the comfort of your home.

Aside from CityOne, Jamaica Blue has other outlets at the following places:
Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur.
Setia City Mall, Setia Alam, Selangor.
Melawati Mall, Pusat Bandar Melawati, Kuala Lumpur.
Seremban Gateway, Seremban.
The Robertson, Kuala Lumpur
Vibrant Café, TNB HQ Bangsar
Eco Avenue, Muar, Johor
Avisena Women’s & Children’s Specialist Hospital

Prreti: Perfect Clean Cleansing Tissues, Cheap and Good

August 18th, 2019 · Nobody Surrendered

I’ve been using Prreti: Perfect Clean Cleansing Tissues for almost a year! Restock it thrice. My travel must-have for removing makeup at the end of the day. The best thing is that it’s only RM6 for 30 pieces!!

It does not irritate my skin and remove all the makeup on my face including eye and lip makeup without much problem at all even the stubborn mascara can be easily removed which usually I need to use another remover for it. No smell from the wipe too.

However, one down side was that the sheet isn’t very sturdy, it’s quite thin and would fray a bit after using. No big deal for me though.

Very affordable, worth it, and great for traveling without the need of carrying bottles of makeup remover. You can get it from Althea 😉

Pobling Mini Ion Applicator Improves Skincare Products Absorption

August 13th, 2019 · Nobody Surrendered

It’s been awhile not sharing anything about beauty. Going to share this Pobling Mini Ion Applicator with you this time. It’s a must now for me whenever after my mask sheet session.

I bought this last year end and didn’t get into blogging about it until now. I’ve been using it for over 8 months and I have nothing bad to say about it. It is as per my expectations. It’s mini(height is less than 14cm) that you can bring it with you anywhere and it runs on 1 AAA battery.

I bought this from Althea but they no longer carry this product. However, other products similar to this product should do the same thing too. I bought this at RM51.

How I use it?

After my sheet mask session, I will massage the essence in with this mini Ion applicator in upward and outward direction. If you see the tip, it seems like a spatula, you can scoop your cream product with it. I didn’t use that side because I don’t use it with other product aside from sheet mask. I use the back part of it to massage.

At the forehead, I do it upward while the cheek and chin area is outward direction towards the ear. I normally do it three cycles. After that, I will use my palms and fingers to massage the rest of the essence in for better absorption in the same direction too until my heart contend LOL!!

It helps a lot in getting the mask essence into the skin better, it’s less sticky after that. Before using this, I always have problem where I will still have very sticky face from the leftover essence that still stayed on the skin surface until I had to wash it off. With this, I have no such problem anymore.

If you can’t find this in the market, I believe other similar product can provide the same benefit to you too.
