Hop Hop Cafe, SS18

Hey bunnies!! Guess what? I visited the REAL bunnies with Stella and Jieyi today! As you can see from the title of this post, I'm going to blog about Hop Hop Cafe, which is a heaven for pet lovers, especially those who have an obsession with rabbits!! 

I got to know this cafe from reading blog reviews (I love reading food reviews a lot, so if you own a foodie blog, feel free to leave me your blog link in the comment box and I'll definitely check it out!). I was so excited to know that besides serving food and beverages at reasonable prices, Hop Hop Cafe also allows pet lovers (especially those who love rabbits) to mingle around with the rabbits in the cafe. 

Ok, the idea of eating and playing with furry rabbits MIGHT sound a bit unhygienic, I know. However, you shouldn't be worrying about this problem at all because the playground for you to play with the rabbits is separated from the dining place. 

Also, the people there are pretty strict that they insist the visitors to clean their hands with the hand sanitiser first before they can enter the rabbits' playground and play with the rabbits. Besides, they also teach us how to hold the rabbits in a proper way so that we don't hurt the little adorable creatures.

Jieyi's Cheese Baked Risotto. When the dish came, I took a small bite. It was flavourful and the risotto was so soft and creamy!

Spaghetti Aglio Olio with seafood. It was delicious and the portion was quite big actually! I think the amount of seafood they put in was a bit disappointing though.

Stella's Spaghetti con Funghi. It tasted kinda like Spaghetti Carbonara but it wasn't as creamy as the carbonara. Again, they serve quite a generous portion and Stella couldn't finish it hahahah. (Maybe she isn't a glutton like me lolol)

OH HI LITTLE CUTE FLUFFY BUNNY!!!! 
We had quite a fun time playing around and taking pictures with the bunnies. However, we got pretty antsy afterwards as the bunnies keep hiding away from us lolol. Well, you just gotta have some patience because sometimes the bunnies can get quite moody and sleepy lolol.

Fashion tips for the petite!

hey all! Here are some pictures from my recent video shoot. Just in case you didn't already know, there's a new video on my Youtube channel! This time around, I'm sharing some styling tips with all the petite ones out there who want to look taller and leaner! Six outfits have been featured in my video and I really hope you guys can get some inspirations from the outfits! 

What kinds of garments would I recommend for a petite figure?

1) Everything high-waisted!!
High-waisted shorts, high-waisted jeans, high-waisted skirts. They should be on a higher waistline than our natural waistline. It's all about creating an illusion of having longer legs! 

2) Wear creepers / platforms / boots if you are not a fan of high heels
Chunky boots are definitely my favourite!

3) Cropped tops / cropped sweaters...especially with high-waisted jeans and boots. Oh god, sounds delicious! :P 

4) Midi skirts
Surprise? Surprise! A-line midi skirts can be super flattering on petite girls because they elongate your frame and make you look leaner. 

5) Wear pants / skirts with vertical lines
Vertical lines are known to have a slimming effect to us, so wearing pants or skirts with vertical lines will definitely make us look taller!

6) Watch my video to know more! :P

Sunsilk Perfect Straight Media Launch

What: Sunsilk Perfect Straight Media Launch
When: 23.09.2014
Where: Aloft K.L 

Hey all!! You would have probably known that I was in the Sunsilk Perfect Straight media launch this afternoon if you've been following me on Instagram!
(Follow me now if you haven't already hehehehe :P)

So I was invited by Nuffnang and Sunsilk to attend their new product launch which was held in Aloft KL. The event was a blast and that's why I'm here to tell you how much fun I had during the event! :D

P1110001
This is definitely the "tourist destination" where everybody stopped by to take a picture hahah!

P1110003
We were all supposed to dress in purple because the dress code said so. It suddenly just dawns on me that the amount of garments I had in purple is just.....miserable. While rummaging through my wardrobe, I found this little daisy dress in lilac and I thought it would be a perfect dress for the event. So I put it on and paired it with a pair of boots, also not forgetting my statement necklace from Katiez Accessories which spiced up the entire outfit! ;)

With Emma ♥
We've followed each other on Instagram for quite a long time but this is the first time we finally met each other in person. She's drop dead gorgeous!

I really love the setting of the event! Everything was in purple and it renders a very classy feeling haha!

Co-created with acclaimed straight-hair expert Yuko Yamashita, Sunsilk Perfect Straight has Straight Lock TechnologyTM which keeps hair beautifully straight and aligned as it dries! A product you really should consider of bringing home.


P1110106
For most girls, there is always that ‘magic moment’ between wet and dry hair when it looks perfectly straight. However, as the hair starts to dry, it often becomes frizzy and out of shape. Sunsilk Perfect Straight can easily save your day!! Surely and promisingly, it locks in the straightness in each strand of your hair, allowing them to stay straight as it dries! 

From the left: Sazzy Falak, Ashlee Ng (Personal Care Director of Unilever (Malaysia) Holdings Sdn.

Sunsilk introduced Perfect Straight with a mini-play to bring to life the proposition of achieving straight hair with just one wash!

The play was really entertaining and the dance performance was great too!

Experimenting with CANMAKE Juicy Pure Eyes

Whenever it comes to makeup, I tend to always stay within the walls of a fortress which I name "My Own Comfort Zone". I mean, I always try to keep my makeup minimal: maybe a thin layer of makeup base, some concealer to hide my dark circles away, a tinge of pink blusher and lipstick, and I'm good to go.

Very often, I prefer to leave my eyes "untouched"... I always skip doing makeup for my eyes, simply because I have monolids. Girls who have monolids, like me, will definitely understand the predicaments when it comes to applying eyeshadows. Well, unless you have the techniques of a pro.

Sometimes when I watch makeup tutorials, I always fawn over eyes with enigmatically attractive double eye-lids, and prominent creases. Whenever they say "Apply this colour to your crease to intensify the look...", I could only sigh in frustration - I can't seem to find noticeable creases around my eyes. I can still remember my first attempt of applying eyeshadows after feeling inspired by a makeup tutorial on Youtube. Needless to say, everything failed miserably and I ended up looking like a person who gets hit on my eyes lolol. How embarrassed.

So that explains why you always see me in minimal makeup.
I just didn't want to look like an utter mess!

However, as I started to watch more and more makeup tutorials, I have come to realise that the whole point of watching makeup tutorials isn't about learning to make myself look like someone I'm not. It's all about getting inspired and applying the right techniques which suit our distinctive facial features. Everyone has different features, everyone knows that; but the priority isn't about knowing "how to put on make up".

Instead, it is much more important to know what's the best for ourselves.

Applying makeup isn't only about following the hard rules - it's all about being confident and feeling comfortable with how you are "dressing up your face". If the outcome of applying certain makeup techniques doesn't make you feel good, never be afraid of wiping it all off and trying another approach!

Recently, I've been experimenting with the eyeshadow palettes from CANMAKE! (hahaha I know I'm somewhat late to the makeup game...but hey, it's better late than never, right?) I'm not a professional, but as usual, I just feel like sharing my experience with you all! :)

P1130218
If you don't already know, CANMAKE has recently launched a new collection of makeup, and within the range I have the most love for The Juicy Pure Eyes (eyeshadows) collection, which comes in 4 different palettes. Each palette carries 3 different tones too! Awesome :p

P1130125
 Here, I'm using the 04 Sweet Beige palette. 

P1130122
First, sweep A over your upper eye area, all the way to your brow bone. Then, gently pat B from the midpoint to the inner corner of your eyes (lower). Finally, using a crease brush, apply C on the outer corners of your eyes (upper) and blend inwards. Of course, don't forget to line your eyes with a gel liner and apply mascara!!

SELFIE TIME!!

Ok la, I know, the eyeliner is a little too harsh here hahahah.
