5 Tips to 5-Star Experience at Busan Firework Festival

Watching fireworks is never the same anymore, ever since we came back from The 14th Busan Firework Festival 2018 at Gwangalli Beach. New Years Eve, was spent with some quality chit chat and chocolates in the car by the roadside instead. Just reminiscing right now as I write this makes me miss the Fireworks experience so much! AND I TOLD MYSELF I WILL GO BACK THERE AGAIN! BECAUSE IT TOOK MY BREATH AWAY AS I LOOK AT THAT 1 HOUR DISPLAY IN AWE. Honestly, photos couldn’t even do the display justice. 

The Annual Busan Firework Festival was the highlight of my 5D4N trip to Busan! Read all about on my upcoming itinerary blogpost and feel free to use the planned trip for your trip – credits to my sister and her boyfriend for the research!

The Busan Fireworks Festival is held every year and usually towards October. So perhaps you can check out Korea TourismBoard with the latest dates. And their latest updates! Though the date have not been set for 2019 yet, but I look forward! 

It was our first time so we did not had any expectation and even planned on anything, we just showed up early and hope for the best. Little did we know as we arrive at 3PM because we asked locals, they advised us to go early to get seats! They have seating prepared for a price to pay, they sell them at the entrance, around $100+.

Because we were on budget trip, and there were 5 of us, we decided to look around the beach and sit there and then. I was literally amazed balls looking at the crowd and we had so much fun waiting for the show while we picnic! The experience was amazing, bear in mind it was a huge crowd. So moving around won’t be easy. But, it’s an experience I really really REALLY recommend everyone who is in Busan during that day to go! 

So here’s 5 Tips that will make that fireworks show a 5-star experience!


  • ·         Bring a Picnic mat perfect for sandy beaches – they sell them there at about 4000KW @ RM12~ Depending on how many people is your group, the bigger the better to get comfortable for everyone. The mat will be placed on the sands so it’s best to get mats that you can brush the sands away easily and you can sit on it without getting sandy.

  • ·         Bring a warm blanket! You’d think im crazy to bring random things like I’m going to hobo or sleep by the road right? Trust me, we spent almost 6hours on the beach, with wind blowing in occasionally in a pretty much considered winter time. Yeap. If you have 10pax. Please get 10 blankets. Haha sharing might not be an option if the wind gets cold!
BONUS ** Wear Warm and bring heat packs/pads! As mentioned you’d be outdoor for the whole night, its really advisable to wear warm and the heat packs will keep your hands warm inside the pocket, because it might look weird to wear gloves cause it won’t be that cold. 

  • ·         Literally, pack a picnic that will last you atleast 2-3hrs! yay food! From the Station along the way, as you walk down to the beach, you will see stalls and shops having counters/booths outside selling Kimbap, Friend Chickens, and other snacking foods. So stock up because it will be quite a long wait.

  • ·         Go as early as 3PM to save you a strategic spot! – we were delaying since the fireworks starts at 8PM. Yes, but rest assure it was a line of activities until the spectacular 1hr. That way you’ll get a comfortable seat and area and still have time spare to go stop by to nearby convenient stores to stock up snacks.

  • ·         Powerbanks and charge up your phone/cameras! and don't forget the Tripod! For the best experience, I’d totally recommend you to have a tripod that is going to be there recording the fireworks display while you enjoy it with your own eyes. Because having to hold your phone up while the amazing display is right in front is a waste to not enjoy the moment. J 

I hope this will be helpful to people planning their Busan trip! As I will be posting my 5D4N Trip soon. Keep a lookout for upcoming posts to-do list planning! 

Until next magical day

5 Tips to get Hired! | Sabah Job & Entrepreneur Fair 2018

It's been quite sometime being a graduate and out from university, seeing convocations around makes me reminisce a little back in those days where we literally attend every possible Education Fairs right after highschools, and then we attack Career Fairs back in University days. Nowadays, its probably Business Conventions. Guess I'm getting old - but still exploring! 

with Sabah Job & Entrepreneur Fair 2018 just ended recently, here's
5 Tips to help you get a Good Impression and Increase your Chances of being Hired 

  1. Setting up the perfect Resume - nope, not just your regular old Word Document with listed out of your contacts and experiences. Make yourself stand out and go a little extra adding a little more life to it, some templates designs around available are free to use too! - psst! try Canva - my go-to place for all things with a touch of graphics or for a more formal set. 

  2. Build up your confidence - personality is really a key during your interview! if you can speak and be yourself at the same time, trust me - you've gain so much advantage that way. Practice socializing more and go out attend events/meet people/network. practice speaking to people and you'll leave an impression for sure.

  3. Learn Extra Skills - while you are job hunting, go learn some skills, doesn't have to be related to your University course or anything complicated. Attend short courses like foreign language, accounting, computer programs available in town or you can opt for online free courses to pick-up some new skills at Udemy Online Learning. That way, you're increasing other opportunities for yourself and at the same time learning new things! 

  4. Tidy Up your Social Media - yeap, sounds a little stupid. but potential employers or HR teams do look into these on certain extend. So, tidy it up a little because it is still an impression on your personality - yes to freedom of speech but it also represents you. For a more professional approach to increase your opportunity, sign up for a LinkedIn account! which was highlighted during one of the session available at Sabah Job & Entrepreneur Fair 2018 by Lorna Timbah.

  5. If you can't get a job, Build a job!  - be your own boss! i'm just as serious! start a business of your own and the experience will build you. you'll probably learn from trial and error, but if it fails - it will still give you a more understanding the insides out of running a business and the likelihood of you being hired gets a plus plus. just because it not only looks nice on your portfolio, but also a sense of maturity is there as you go through building your own business. Bright side - you'll either be boss and give others jobs. or you get a upper hand in collecting valuable experiences. 
So you're pumped up and excited?
but where to start? - attending Job Fairs are the best start off points apart from sending in resumes online. 


Last week, I attended Sabah Job & Entrepreneur Fair at Likas Sport Complex, which was organized by the State Government along with Parti Warisan Sabah and Kumpulan Yayasan Sabah to provide opportunities for graduates and encourage entrepreneurship among them. Just in-time as it is convocation season too! 

There were booths available that allows employers to showcase their business as well as candidates to submit their resumes up-front. with 250 companies have registered providing job opportunities via with 1,078 job opportunities available online. 

Candidates were provided registration counters to submit their resumes and to tidy up their resumes. less hassle and environmental friendly as we reduce paper! 
Interview booths were provided too for a direct interview arrangement and hiring process. 


I enjoyed most for Job fairs like these are the variety of speakers line-up to prep yourself for a job whether its for corporate sector or the government sector. These are valuble sessions that graduates can sit in and really learn a thing or two for themselves! Sharing sessions from successful entrepreneurs on their ups and downs along the journey are great encouragements to the aspiring entrepreneurs. 

Listed a few below are some of the line-up available :

Working vs Entreprenuer - Jonethan Matheus (Warisan Harta Sabah)
Entrepreneurial Mindset - Fariz A. Rani
How to Create a Professional Resume through LinkedIn – Lorna Timbah
How to Have a Successful Career by Brandon Chin
Climbing Corporate Ladder by Shella Bathumalai (Almacrest Global)
Resume Clinics & Interviewing Skill Coaching by Flavian Majail

with that, I wish all graduates all the best in job hunting, and to be brave! just take the first initiative and you'll see it will flow in naturally. 


On a side note, feel free to read up my old post about the 7 Things I Learnt from University! and also one of the popular posts on PTPTN for those who scored First-class Honours - PTPTN Loan Exemption | Convert to Scholarships.

PB & J with Arrie's Nut Butter! | Food Review

"Have you imagine there is so much nuts around and there is so much health benefits each one contains?"

Peanut butters has been known for its wondrous healthy fat for our body! And I have been a peanut butter muncher lately to reduce my hunger pangs on my diet. The team from Arries Nut Buttercame in just in time for a review! And boyyyyy I was amaze with the variety they have! Amazing nut butters you can’t get it on the market. Ranging from Almonds all the way to Pine nuts!
Here’s some of my favourite nuts and really cool facts shared by the team at Arrie’s !


Peanut - the most common nut for nut butters, but also i think Arrie's did a great job in making sure the taste and texture is real. the texture is a little more runny than your usual commercial peanut butters. but I REALLY LOVE the flavour and sweetness to their peanut butter! not sweet and just the right amount of peanut taste so you'd actually feel like double dipping.

Pistachio – was among my top favourite from the stash! It has a rougher texture and you can really taste the nuts. The nutty taste lingers in your mouth so well! Best of all, it wasn’t sweet and you can taste the authentic rich pistachio nuts! Much thicker compare to the others even though stored under room temperature perfect for snacking
These green gems have fewer calories per nut than many other varieties, but that’s not the only perk: They’re rich in lutein, an antioxidant that’s also found in leafy greens and is important for healthy vision and skin. Plus, one serving gives you almost as much potassium as a small banana.

Almond  - to be honest, it was a neck and neck battle with the pistachio butter because it has the same grudge texture I love! Its not really chunky – but it has a nice lingering texture that makes me crave by eating them by scoops! Its dangerously addictive. Softer on the thickness, perfect to eat with breads or fruits!  
Almonds do much more than just help lower cholesterol. They pack more fiber and calcium than any other nut on our list, are lower-cal than most other varieties, and are an excellent source of vitamin E
Macadamia – known for its really nice strong flavour. its my mom and dad's favourite. more softer on texture and is thinner on the spread. but packs quite a punch on the flavour. would go well with chocolate spread or fruits.
While they contain the most fat of any nut here, they also have the highest percentage of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. They’re also a good source of thiamine, which helps your nervous system function.

Pecan - was a little raw for me. i'd love it to be more roasted, cause i always love my cookies with pecan. but yes, you can really taste they put in a lot of pecans to make sure you get your needed health benefits! 
Pecans are rich in beta-sitosterol, a type of plant sterol found to lower cholesterol as well as contribute to prostate health—so encourage the men in your life to eat up!

If you’re into a more natural options! They have seasoning options that fits the health conscious – they only used Organic cane sugar and Himalyan Pink Salt for seasoning! Nothing else!  

Natural – might be a little blunt and really strong on the nut taste as nothing is added into it! So if you’re really into a healthy choice and full on nut butter. You can opt for this seasoning option!

Lightly seasoned - light and easy seasoned. an in between for standard and natural. pretty mild.

Standards yumms – most of the nuts I tried was standard seasoned. And really, it wasn’t sweet at all! It was just nice and all the way you can taste the nuts so clearly! I probably had the best peanut butter thus far!

Whats great is that they are naturally handmade and the team behind it does a great job making sure there is  quality control as their products are made with No MSG – No Artificial chemicals & preservatives – No Oil added – and its also perfect for Vegans! They make their nut butter to order! So rest assure the quality is there.

Because they are naturally made and there is no preservatives and chemicals –
shelf life @ Room Temperature is 1 month
shelf life @ Fridge Temperature is 6 months
shelf life @ Freezer Temperature is 1year

I’ve tried the butters with apples, bread and crackers! I honestly think they would go well with oats bowls and fruits as well! You can always get creative with the recipe!

Boiing Boiing face with My Beauty Masks |

gold hydrogel masks! remember when i mentioned i fell in love with hydrogel masks in my previous post at the Butterfly Tapau goodies overview? yeap, receiving more hydrogel masks to really give these a good review brings me to excitement!

here some quick perks for hydrogel masks?

No Watery Drips 
No Slippery Fall Offs
Easy to Attach and Detach 
Filled with Goodness of  the Essences 

"Hydrogel is a gel that holds 99% of liquid due to their molecular capacity of holding 500 times it’s size. The gel is used extensively in the medical field for wound dressing, to speed up the healing process while cooling the affected area. It serves as a hydrating barrier to protect the wound from inflammation and any growth of bacteria. Hydrogel is also found in tissue engineering, contact lenses and hygiene products. So how does our skin benefit from wearing a Hydrogel Mask? Using a hydrogel mask during our skincare routine helps boost the cellular function. "MOIRA Beauty

today's hydrogel masks are My Beauty Masks from..
thank you tammy from Butterfly Project Malaysia for sharing these lovely masks and keeping us caterpillar's faces plump and bouncy. Their masks are proudly free from the following 8 ingredients!

let's start off with.. 

Red Ginseng Gold Hydrogel Mask 
the texture is soft and bouncy just as you'd expect for a hydrogel, leaves a really nice fit to the face too! because i have a rather round face. because Red Ginseng is known for its toning and anti-aging properties, the masks reflects more towards helping out in anti-aging properties like stretch marks, toning and brightening. mom gives it a good feedback where she can see some brightening effects after usage.

Ginger Gold Hydrogel Mask
similar texture with a soft and bouncy feel from the hydrogel. Ginger on its own has always been known for remedies in curing various health concerns, containing antioxidant properties that prevents free radical damage and protect against aging making our skin boiing boinng just like the masks! it left me a little tingling heat feeling which i presume it was from the ginger. but all in all i can feel my face much more glow and softer! 

here's my mom's happy relax time enjoying her Ginger Gold Hydrogel Mask!
the only downside i didn't like on hydrogel masks for this range is that it tears quite easily and very hard to readjust to fit your face. delicate hands is very much needed.

Rice Sheet Mask
included is also our regular sheet masks from MY Product Company, which plays quite an important role that brightens and hydrates our skin! with the nutrient properties on rice extracts, there is no doubt its screams happiness to our skin. :) because rice extracts is good for our skins


The Butterfly Project Malaysia is a community group that helps bloggers grow and learn!

The Butterfly Project
"The name was inspired by a local magazine - Female Magazine when they showcased a series of challenges for a group of women to undergo makeovers ranging from beauty to lifestyle called the Female Butterfly Project. Much like America's The Swan without the plastic surgery and dental work. Since then, Tammy has initiated her own group of women bloggers to inspire and challenge them to makeover themselves through blogging. The community's tagline "Beauty From Head To Toemeant becoming beautiful from the inside and out."

HP Sprocket Printer - Fun but Sad | Tech Review

hey hey hey!
having an Tech review from me is a little rare as i am definitely abit of a when it comes to tech and specification descriptions. so today's review will not be on the tech side to be honest! its more towards the results and how the HP Sprocket Printer's performance, that i got as a gift from my boyfriend! if you're reading this bbyy! thank you again for the lovely present! 

with that said, i was dead surprise, literally brought me to tears when i received it because apparently i received 2 of my dream gadgets on that week itself! which was this HP Sprocket and Fujifilm Instax from my sister! ever thankful and grateful for the love - they know me so well, and yet im still too poor and unwilling to buy my own! haha

so let's get down to business!

the cost will probably burn for a lumsum purchase at RM470 @ discounted. but because the Zink papers costs just as expensive - it will be a constant RM35~38/20 sheets. which is quite costly, especially for the print performance you'll be getting.

the size and weight is just nice like a pocket powerbank size fitted your palm. and doesn't weight heavy at all. so it's quite easy to bring around where you'd like your impromptu photos to be printed. parties or events are nice too!

the simplicity on the app and how to use the Sprocket is quite straight forward. open up Bluetooth - Connect and Print via sprocket app! the settings in the apps are also quite simple to navigate. and simple to play around with editing and stickers and colourful frames. 

printed results was the biggest disappointment because i was expecting a better printed quality to be honest! the colour was quite off towards a yellowish hue but also not consistent because i'd be a different hue for the next print even though its the same picture and the noise was unbearable to my personal view. because i did not do much editing and stickers pin-ups on the first few prints. the plain results got me into despair that i actually thought it has something wrong or i did something wrong on the setup! basically i panicked when reality doesn't meet my expectation. 


was it worth it? honestly, no. i felt a little bad cause it costed so much as a gift from my bf but it couldn't meet my photo printing expectations. lol but! on the other hand if you do not take the photos too seriously, its actually passes as a fun portable purikura print stickers that you'll be more willing to hand out to your friends as gifts! because if the quality was good. i'd be keeping them all to myself!

but overall, also because of the cost of the papers is expensive, which reduces the commitment to restock on the paper - it would be rare to be using this baby. I'd probably be printing my photos the old fashion way. and no more portable printers on my wishlist!

still appreciate the lovely gift. because the heart that counts! 
hope this will be helpful for others. but, i really wish they could improve on the performance and i'd bring it everywhere i go! hahaha

GUARDIAN 'Bye Bye' Eye masks series | Skincare Review

everyday our eyes are used so much, from waking up in the morning opening wide open all the way till we get our goodnight sleep! in between, let's include staring at the computer screen probably 8-10hrs a day, and also on the mobile screen for intervals which probably tops it off with 14hrs! and because our skin around our eyes are the thinnest and most delicate part, it requires regular boost in hydration. because tired eyes tend to make us look older and dull.

was roaming around the mask section in Guardian the other day! and these nicely priced eye masked caught me right handed! RM6.90 for 5pcs! instantly bought them to try out! and went back for more!

two word for these little cuties! 

Guardian's Bye Bye Series, are focused on masks sheets for the eyes! I bought all and tried it out. 
the series comes with 5 types of Bye Bye effects which focuses on their own distinctive labels. 
obviously i horded the bye bye panda eyes and tired eyes the most because those are my need -to -fix for my eyes! It is made of a 2-piece cotton soaked essence sheets with the shape made to fit your eye contour. 

Bye Bye 'Panda Eyes'
late nights and working long hours on the laptop are definitely the cause of the panda eyes, its actually also involved with our health and pigmentation from the sun/light exposure which somewhat contributes to it. i guess i'm a living breathing proof! the masks is believe to brighten the dark circles and recharges its radiance.  

AFTER FEEL: eyes feel much more moist and relaxed. however, panda eyes can't be really gone for the most obvious reasons. call me crazy or hallucinating, but it does feel a little lighter after a few use. just a slight shade lighter - doesn't really help if you're panda eyes is like mine.

SCENT: smells like a light coco powder milky. just as how it was stated on the packaging.

Bye Bye 'Tired Eyes'
the tired eyes are usually the caused of the lack of hydration and when we used too much staring at the lighted screens. Made with cucumber and Aloe Vera extracts, this little guy helps recharge the eye contour with supple hydration with a touch of Pomegranate essence too! 

AFTER FEEL: eyes feels more refresh! i like this one because it really did have a little cooling tinge to it. its great to put on mid-day to boost your tired eyes.

SCENT: light cucumber scent, which is quite authentic. calming and cooling perfect to rest your tired eyes. 

Bye Bye 'Stressful Eyes'
pampers the eyes with a radiant glow soothing away the effects of our everyday stress. made with Witch Hazel extracts and Melon! it is believe to brighten and hydrates our skin. 

AFTER FEEL: did not have any big impact to me, but i slept well after that. so maybe indirectly it helped soothes the eyes.

SCENT: suprisingly did not smell like melon at all! more like mild lemony citrus smell

Bye Bye 'Dehydrated Eyes'
fine lines and aging will speed up if we leave our eyes dehydrated. This masks has anti-oxidant avocado extract to help provides a nice moisturizing boost.

AFTER FEEL: eyes feels a little hydrated. leave a light sticky feel but super mild on the eyes as its quite watery during the place on period. no super magical changes or impact, just okay for relaxing the eyes. However, try not to get too near your eyes - this one left a little sting if the essence gets into the eyes

SCENT: smelled more like light melon instead of avocado.

Bye Bye 'Puffy Eyes' 
puffy eyes also known as under-eye bags are usually cause by irregular sleeping hours, though its not a problem to me, this masks is believe to better firm and smooths the skin around the eye area. 

AFTER FEEL: i don't really have puffy eyes, no bags for my eyes. so this kinda serves more of a firming mask and more towards to relaxation to me.

SCENT: light floral smell, quiet calming.

of course the effects like reducing dark circles can't be really seen as of yet, due to the random days I used them and inconsistency in purchases. but they do soothes and relaxes my eyes a lot whenever I use them and best part is that most of them do not stinggg! with great prices down to RM2 a piece!
for affordable prices, it works just so-so. no wow effects, but a good party pack or impromptu relax fix to the eyes.

do you do sheet eye masks? 

until next magical day,
