My KDrama binge is settled with YOODO! the 100% Customisable Mobile Plan!

 hello magical people! 


A kpop fan? 

A gamer? 

A kdrama addict? 

A music streamer? 


well, checklist for me because I just might have found my reason to switched my loyalty of 15years from #iwillfollowyou to Yoodo! #youdoitbetter is a catchy hashtag i might add!



Truthfully, as we are stuck at home during these time, it was great to be able to adjust on the costs. I went from a RM120 plan to a RM80 and even down to RM48 recently to realize I didn't really need to pay so much for data, calls nor SMS. so why did I switch? I guess i was interested in the young yet empowering community in Yoodo. Something unique as they acknowledges the current trends and accomodates to the needs of younger generations who are definitely the majority users of mobile phones nowadays. Although I may fall in between, because I do need to use the phone for work quite often, so calls still quite important. As we had the session with CEO, Chow Tuck Mun - it was nice to see management engaging directly and sharing that they acknowledges the current on-going trends and is opne to listen for feedbacks as a community.



I am a regular user of Joox Spotify for my Kpop streaming needs and day-to-day musics. And then there is my daily kdrama dose from Netflix and Viu my recent kdrama second lead #teamjipyeong streaming addiction was at no problem! Gamers obviously had a joy ride with free PUBG all the way!



so planning my month-to-month mobile plan was a great way to not only manage expenses, but also helps me prioritize according to my budget. Well, it wasn't even expensive to begin with so it was definitely a steal. So again? same same price, what so special aside from flexibility? The events and giveaways got me interested. Kpop fans go crazy for concert tickets! PLEASE BRING GOT7 FOR ME. but yeah, who knows? I might just be the lucky few right? I mean, to be really honest. I hopped on for the flexibility. 


Obviously in thoughts that these are also perfect for my parents with setups as low as RM12 for the basics! Enough to not complicate things and say good bye to prepaid expiring credits. Consider it hops on to Celcom's coverage, I have been getting alot of good recommendations for their line especially in the outskirts, so definitely another plus point there! 



Here's more good news!  

Throughout December, Yoodo will be carrying out a series of giveaways to celebrate this Season of Giving. New users and current Yoodo users alike can look forward to rewards and prizes with two different giveaway campaign (Ho! Ho! Holiday Giveaway and Rewarding Everyday Heroes)


Prizes include Apple iPhone 12 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, Apple AirPods Pro, and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang in-game Diamonds. For those looking to get these presents under their Christmas tree, all they have to do is perform specific actions tied to each gift category – such as spend RM50 and above in a single transaction or even simply purchase a 7GB data booster. 

The campaign ends on 31 December 2020.


These special rewards come on the heels of Yoodo’s latest promotion - Double Special. For a limited time, users will enjoy doubled high-speed data quotas at no additional cost. With this new promo, users can get a combined total (including data add-ons) of 50GBs at RM35, 70GBs at RM55 under the recommended plans or as usual, they can simply customise and create their own plans to suit their personal needs. Yoodo users simply have to select from the list of doubled-up data plans when they sign up and customise their plans. 


So much deals to end the year with a much better side.

Reflections on MCO – Mother Earth is Healing



Hey hey! Been away from blogging since end of 2019 and haven’t gotten to properly plan out contents for the blog although there were some drafts sitting around. As I have been busy planning for my Europe trip on extension from a business trip, and then the whole Covid-19 virus broke out. Time got in the way as we prepare to Work-From-Home, and as things settled down now. Everything is much more in order now. 

How is everyone going through their Lockdown for Covid-19 Circuit Break lately? 
With the lockdown in place; I did some self-reflections on my own and to get to know myself a little more. To be really honest, I am forever grateful and thankful for this opportunity to actually slow down and take some time to plan for myself and working from home has made it so much easier to balance between work and personal. I know it kinda sounds contradicting – like what?


But with everything within steps away and time are more organized nicely. It makes things planned out executed on-time because there is less distractions. Partly is also because I don’t have family commitments like a child or those kind of responsibility yet. But it’s it good time to reflect and to get to know ourselves more don’t you think?

There is much more ‘me’ time now because we’re probably surviving from social deprive. Human touch is definitely needed some times where you miss loved ones and the family. But it started to move towards working on myself more now that there is so much spared ‘me’ time. 

My long excused to exercise has finally moved into the schedule

My pending drafts and ideas are moving into the next steps of progress

The book I’ve always wanted to writing is structuring more legit

The food I eat now are more cautious and healthy

The journals of reflections are updated timely

If you look at it positively, it is actually a hidden blessing for both Mother Earth and for us who has always been working in a fast pace environment where we survive to earn a living to a appreciate life more by spend more time on self-reflections and development and even getting to know ourselves more. Practicing self-love was difficult as I have always been insecure and well, take into account on other feelings and as I reflected, most of the things I have been doing are not exactly what I wanted to do. It’s just do for the need of it, or things to keep me busy. From there, time management was one of the first few skills that I have learnt. And boyyy! Once you’re sorted that out, life feels more productive.

Having that said, I have finally prepped up the blog again and will be writing more freely! 

Until next magical day,

Sabah Bakery & Hospitality Expo | An Industry Insights!



If you're planning on getting into the F&B industry in Kota Kinabalu, the 3-Day Sabah Bakery & Hospitality Expo is a good place to survey for vendors and getting in touch with suppliers of various ingredients and also packaging vendors too! the Food Trucks opportunities are there for you to inquire more information. 


SBNHE is the first bakery and hospitality exhibition held in East Malaysia which aims to invite individuals and companies to further understand this industry as well as making new bonds with suppliers of various companies. At the same time, it will enable participants of booths to showcase their brand and expand clientele at the same time. To further boost the exhibition, the organiser also invited the International Federation of Chinese Bakery and Confectionery Association (Asia) as well to be part of their guest exhibitor.


The exhibition consist of various participants from different industries such as Bakery Machinery, Food Ingredients, Frozen and Dry Food, and Packaging, Industrial/household cleaning chemical, F&B Software as well as others related to the food industries. The event itself also hosts participants from a few neighbouring countries such as China, Taiwan, Brunei, Indonesia with a total of 135 booths.


Booths presented are the back-end operations of every business around and they are your ingredients suppliers like Bake with Yen, HongSeng cold storage, and Consfood which are some recognizable names, while machinery and packaging are not every time your easily accessed vendors; I had a great time learning and getting insights of the back-end of the F&B business just by roaming around and learning what the exhibitors have to offer! Food sampling and on-site displays of culinary arts are a good experience during the expo. 


One of the key booths that caught my attention is the Food Grade Packaging vendors. As a persons who is particularly attracted to packaging when I do most of my purchase; I learnt there is a difference between food-grade packaging and also non-food grade; as they are made in consideration of sanitary needs and are more suitable to handle food products. Boyyy the boxes were sturdy af for a cake! 


Anddd if you are stopping by, I highly recommend to try out the DimSum booth! It was darn addictive and yummy! I walked out happy with my own loot, can't wait to eat them at home steamed up hot and nice for brunch!

  • 110 Calories for a medium sized Potato = 1 Orange. 
  • The skin-on potato has more Potassium than a medium sized Banana 
  • Potatoes contains Vitamin C, which is suppose to be 30% of the daily value


Indra also shared that although many people these days are worried about their carbohydrate intake, carbohydrates are one of the key nutrients in performance nutrition.  Athletes engaged in high volume and high intensity training require adequate amounts of carbohydrates for energy.  U.S. potatoes are an example of an excellent source of carbohydrates. They are rich in vitamin B6 and C, potassium, folate, fibre and antioxidants.

US POTATO WEDGES IKURA - You know it's extra Atas when your daily cheesy wedges suddenly becomes fusion with the finest Ikura from the Favourites of Japanese Cuisines, added with Celeriac, a new to my personal taste, that has a mild hint of celery. It was a good opening to a funfilled flavourful night.

US HASHBROWN AND SALMON - One of my 2 favourite dish for the night! The salmon and poached egg combo is an All-Day Breakfast lover's common favourite! topped on crunchy hashbrown, you wouldn't even know you're eating sinfully. :) Loved the texture and the taste combination.

US POTATOES WITH CAVIAR - Number 1 on my favourite dish of the night, served as a soupy and cropped Potatoes. It felt very expensive and to the naked eye, the potato would look like a huge yummy looking scallop. a vegetarian scallop. Wish there was more soup, because it was bursting with amazing flavour!

US RUSSET POTATOES SALAD - a very easy everyday salad, that is wonderful for most lunch boxes and picnics/potlucks. Served with Breaded Japanese Cuttlefish. This salad is not your alang-alang Potato Salad. 

The line-up was nice, and it was filling to be honest, I was expecting a hungry me as it was quite of a fine dining experience. 2 Star Michelin style. I had a great night with amazing people and informative, information on the lovely potato. I shall never judge the carbs on the potatoes as much anymore.

Miniel Skinlab Hydraque Boost Serum Masks | Your Stress Free Vacation!


Let's give a big goodbye to Summer! it was the time of the year when themes were filled with vibrant colours of blue, yellow, red and a whole lot of summer beach vibes. Get your shades ready, because we will be skinny dipping into some really new products! Because... Here in Malaysia, it's an all year round of summer. with that said, Miniel Skinlab's Hydraque Collection will definitely make the cut to save our skin! 


Miniel Skinlab is a local brand focusing on minimalist skincare with ingredients that is suitable for all skin types; this product is paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free and EU allergen-free. I love supporting local brands, and its great to see more great people building their passion and sharing it to the world. As the brand focuses on minimalist, the ingredients and as well as packaging is at the best minimal yet vital.


came with the Stress Free Vacation kit ; A really nice summer vibe pouch which I am currently using for my beach necessities, A nice woven tote bag, Props that I've always contemplated to get for the summer flatlays, and the most thoughtfully waxed sealed letter. Thank you so much for the beautiful kit you have put up!


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It took me awhile as I had been trying it out on-the-go, under air-conditioned. But to my surprise as I don't sleep in air-conditioned room, the serum was not sticky and absorbs so well! Both moisturizes and hydrates the skin, while they lock in goodness to retain the the elasticity of the skin!  which definitely promoted cell regeneration and removed dull dead skins at minimal effort! 


Hydraque Gel Mask is my favourite among the 2 lovely; Watery Gel - just look at that beautiful pool inspired blue. so beautiful. Not only did it show immediate effect upon rinse off, the key ingredients are pretty interesting with Kudzu Extract, Watermelon, Apple and Lentil apart for Sodium Hyaluronate. 


Their Hydraque Boost Serum, it is what is said to be, this mini tube packs quite a juice at 3 pumps; containing Yeast Extract and Hyaluronic Acid! its anti-aging and is retains hydration to your skin.  

THE TEXTURE 

  • THE GEL MASK WAS SOOTHINGLY BOUNCY, and addictive to scoop, the texture was bouncy, and jelly-like, but soft enough to spread. Transparent with a hint of blue, the colour is so soothing to the eye. kinda like aloe vera gels, As you spread on, it takes some time to dry, means it has jammed packed of hydrating abilities to work its magic? 
  • THE BOOST SERUM was super light-weighted, with a frosted glass pump i was expecting something thick, but it was light and easily absorb! probably less than a minute; which actually makes me uses it more on the face because i feel like its not enough sometimes; no sticky feeling at all! so happy and i approves! 


THE SMELL I have a thing for nice smelling skincares, so it was a yay for me because it smelled like fresh breeze, it wasn't ocean breeze. A nice fresh flower smell like i came out from the shower! but not as prominent; only during applications you'd smell it. So what has abit of watermelon too! which is partly the ingredients for the Gel mask!


THE AFTER-FEEL


  • LOVE THE AFTER FOR THE GEL MASK! IT WAS SO SOFT AND I FELT LIKE MY SKIN JUST GOT PLUMPER JUST ON THE FIRST TRY! - To be honest I was pretty addicted to the mask, but I didn't want to use it daily.
  • The serum was love as well, not as wow as the mask, but it absorbs well and blends well with my layering of other skincare. No stings not irritations, I was very happy with the soft feeling after it absorbs. 


THE PACKAGING a big shoutout to the simplicity to the packaging but so much awe because of the frosted glass that gives out a cooling vibe for the summer theme! It comes in quite sturdy and nice on the grip. the cover is light and easily sealed. Boxes are also simple with a hint of baby blue! definitely screams hydration no?


REPURCHASE? Yes, costing at RM97 for Boost Serum and RM67 for Gel Mask, they are quite affordable. I just wished it comes in a bigger tub. but they are perfect for Travel at 30ml & 50gm! I have been using it for my travel and I am down to my last 1/3.
