5 tips to Cope with The Hot Weather

Earlier this year, Malaysians experienced nice cool weather for over a week. Many loved the unusual cool weather that is experienced more commonly in four season countries while some prefer a warmer climate. However, no one enjoys extreme hot climate with temperature soaring above 35°C.

As we approach April, the temperature seemed to have been rising and this hot climate could last till March/April. During this time of the year, we perspire more, the heat starts to affect our mood and our skin feels burnt when we are outdoors. In a recent news report, the Meteorological Department has warned the public that the level of ultraviolet (UV) radiation is at its extreme high and it could reach up to an index reading of 15 in the afternoon on a clear day. Any reading above 11 is considered as extreme, according to the international standard measurement of the level of UV radiation exposure. Before it takes a toll on you, shield yourself from the strong UV rays and the scorching heat. Get your UV shields ready before you step out and expose yourself to the sun and heat.

What are UV shields? Among some of the common UV shields would include an umbrella, a broad rim hat, ultra-thin jacket with UV protection, UV sleeves, sunglasses, sunblock, and whitening skincare which is ideal for summer and a hot climate such as ours to ensure that skin remains bright and flawless!

Here are 5 tips from Mamonde to help you cope with the hot weather that we are experiencing now:

1. Stay Indoors and Surround Yourself with Flowers

It is best to stay indoors as much as you can to protect yourself from the scorching hot sun. Surround yourself with flowers as flowers are known as a source of happiness and the floral scents lifts the spirit and relaxes you. Magnolia for example is known to have therapeutic properties and very commonly used in Chinese medicine to treat stress. It is perfect to create a relaxing atmosphere at home. But if you have to spend time outdoors then ensure to pack the necessary UV shields with you and also a bottle of mist to hydrate your skin.

2. Drink Cooling Floral Teas to Combat the Heat

Cooling teas are known to combat the summer heat. Most cooling tea infusions are made from dried flowers and leaves such as Chrysanthemum, honeysuckle, lotus leaves and mulberry leaves. Preparation for these cooling teas are easy and can be done at home. To sweeten your tea, just add honey or rock sugar.

3. Infuse your Food with Edible Flowers

The hot weather can take a toll on you with heavy perspiration and the heat certainly does not leave you in a good mood. Edible flowers are therapeutic as they contain nutrients and benefits the body. Rose for example is a popular edible flower. The petals contain about 95 percent water and they also contain vitamin C. Cooking with rose petals also makes you feel good. Bright coloured edible flowers are a good source of antioxidants and they also contain other vitamins and minerals that are essential to the body. Therefore, including edible flowers in your food intake during this hot season is ideal as it helps to replenish lost nutrients and minerals.

4. Shield your Skin with Calendula

The hot weather requires you to shield your skin from UVA and UVB. Use not just any ordinary sunblock but one that has restorative properties. A sunblock that contains Calendula plant extracts offer additional benefits to the skin apart from protecting it from UV. Calendula promotes fast healing from burns and inflammation; and it also has restorative properties that infuse the skin with a youthful glow. If you are outdoors, it is recommended that you reapply the sunscreen every two hours especially when the sun is hottest between 1pm to 4pm.

Inspired by the distinctive properties of four selected flowers, namely the Rose, Heartleaf Houttuynia, Calendula and Evening Primrose, Mamonde’s NEW Flower Facial Mask Line brings women’s beauty back into bloom through its bouquet of floral goodness offered to the skin.

WASH-OFF TYPE

Rose

A woody perennial, the Rose was first spotted in the Babylonian Kingdom in 2000 B.C, prior to being cultivated by the British and French later in the 16th century. Roses blooms in various shapes and colours, and it is usually extracted to produce rose oils or used as an ingredient in the cosmetics industry. Beautiful and healing, the Rose is loved by many for both its ornamental values and the many benefits it brings to the skin. Not only does the Rose helps calm the mind, its anti-oxidative properties also help boost and refine tired skin for a clear and healthier look.

With such admiration for the Rose, Mamonde has identified three outstanding properties for the formulation of its latest Flower Mask. Introducing Mamonde’s Petal Purifying Bubble Mask, a rose-derived, wash-off mask that offers excellent calming, moisturising and anti-oxidative effect to the skin.

Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Mild Gel SPF30 PA+++ Protect Your Skin against Environmental Pollution

Vehicle emissions, smoke and dust are all pollutants that we are exposed to daily. With our skin being the outermost barrier, it is damage-prone with constant exposure to pollutants and UV. Pollutants have minute particles that are tiny enough to penetrate the skin resulting in various skin problems that include premature aging, wrinkles, pigmentation and dullness. In addition to the effects of pollutants, excessive exposure to the UV rays can worsen skin conditions and accelerate premature aging.

One of the ways that could help protect the skin from the harmful pollutants and UV rays is by applying sunscreen that has an anti-pollutant function. Developed to address skin problems caused by pollutants and UV rays, the Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Mild Gel SPF30 PA+++ is here to protect your skin against environmental pollution including PM2.5 particles (PM2.5 are fine particle pollutants which are potentially harmful. They cling to the skin and become lodged in the pores which could penetrate into the epidermis layers. An extended exposure to PM2.5 can cause various health problems including inflammatory skin conditions such as rashes and itching).
The Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Mild Gel is formulated with three moisturising ingredients i.e. hyaluronic acid, amino acids and a collagen blend that functions to keep the skin moisturised and prevents it from premature aging. The Skin Aqua Mild Gel is free from fragrance, colorants, alcohol and mineral oil. It is gentle on the skin and suitable for those with sensitive skin.
It has a super light and watery texture that makes it comfortable for everyday use on both face and body. It also comes with SPF30 PA +++, offering a broad spectrum of protection against UV rays.

[Review] THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam Regenerating Range

Growing up in a typical Chinese family, I strongly believe the benefits of consuming ginseng hence we will always buy ginseng whenever I travel to South Korea. In traditional Chinese medicine, Korean Ginseng is used to promote yang energy, increase the blood supply and improve blood circulation; it is a tonic for the whole body system in times of weakness, fatigue and stress. In fact, it is great ingredient for skincare too for its anti-oxidant qualities.
I have recently tried out THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam Heaven Grade Ginseng Regenerating Range. Inspired by the stories of beautiful Korean women and their secrets of beauty regimen that passed through generations, the anti-ageing line is formulated with Korean traditional herbs, plants and flowers extracts found in Korea’s cleanest and pristines areas such as Ginseng from Gyeongbuk Province, Safflower from Sancheong Jirisan mountain and Goji Berry from Chungnam Province. It is suitable for Dry Skin, Mature Skin and Normal Skin.
Just like other range from THE FACE SHOP Yehwadam series, Yehwadam Regenerating Range has an opulent packaging that is beautiful and luxurious. Packaged in a paper box, the pump bottles are solid with a beautifully gemstone crafted lid. Even better, the range comes with a very mild herbal scent that is pleasant, fresh and revitalizing. It is so comfortable to use every day and night.
Let’s look into more details on the products that we have tried below;

Fast & Cheap Australia ETA Online Application for Malaysian

Hi my dear readers, I am at the lovely country, Australia when you are reading this post. Since we are going to be away for more than a week, the blog will be inactive until we are back to Malaysia. Sorry for not able to schedule any blogposts this time because I have been very busy lately.

Hence this post to share our experience on Australia ETA Online Application.

If you don’t know yet, a Malaysian we need an ETA (Electronic Travel Authority), an authorization to enter Australian territory, and is electronically linked to our passport. I remembered when we visited Australia previously; we paid quite a huge amount to local travel agency to do it for us. Well it was not too easy, as we need to go to the travel agency and provide all the information needed.

Now that everyone has an Internet, we can apply it ourselves online easily and fast too.

This time, we have applied from Australia Visa https://www.australia-visa.com.au/ as recommended by a friend. It is pretty simple to apply, just follow the steps below;

1. Go to the website

2. Click on ‘VISA APPLICATION’ tab on the top bar

3. Select your citizenship, travelling date and number of pax.

4. Fill in the required information in the form. You will get a tracking ID, please jot it down for future reference.

5. Review the information and proceed to next step if they are correct.

6. Make payment. You can pay by credit card or online banking. We used Maybank2u to pay and get ourselves some discount for online payment.

7. Submit confirmation and wait for the approval email.

The Visa application fees was RM 25 only per person with the online banking services.

Our friend had their Visa promptly but we waited for more than 24 hours without any response from them. Hence we go back to the website and check the status by clicking on ‘STATUS’ tab and key in our tracking ID only to find out that our payment was ‘Not PAID’. In fact, the maybank2u transaction was successful, the amount was deducted from my bank. So, we have emailed to their customer support at and attached our tracking ID plus receipt for them to check and advice.

We received their approval email within hours after we sent the email.

Now, we just have to logon to the site, and print the Visa from the ‘STATUS’ page and here we go to Australia! Woohoo.

It is really simple, fast and cheap. Share with you more when we are back from our family vacation ok, xoxo.

I Wanted be to a Magic Master with my Kids!

I remember as a child being awestruck when my brother made a coin disappear. I always asked my brother to show me more magic, we also watched David Copperfield’s magic show on the TV. We had so much fun time together with magic during our childhood. It was a time of fantasy, where everything seems possible with Magic.
So much so, that I wanted to learn how the magician did their magic trick and how my children could learn it too. I have enrolled my elder daughter to magic class during her pre-school time. She like to play with her copper magic wand to do the magic trick. Now, even my younger daughter has recently become fascinated with the world of magic.
I like that the kids fall into magic, well I believe most of the kids do love magic. It is a world where everything is possible with your creative juice flowing. For instant, we can hold water in an up-side-down glass, walk through paper and many more. It would keep my kids and me entertained and feel happy in the magical world.

Now, the school term holidays are coming soon. I am so excited when I found out the CITTA Magic Masters event where my kids and I could spend some quality fun time together this coming school holidays.

Mixing these fiery little wonders with onions, oil, herbs, fresh lemons and a kick of garlic produces the brand’s unparalleled secret weapon, the Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce.
“We are definitely excited about reaching such a significant milestone here in Malaysia. When we first introduced ourselves, I believe we piqued the interest of chicken lovers out there. We were unique and were offering new flavours to people so it was an intriguing time for everyone. 20 years on and we are still firing up the tastebuds of our amazing fans and hitting a few new-comers as well. Our magical little chilli called PERi-PERi is to thank for this as it is our heart and our heat and it is truly unique to Nando’s,” commented Stephen Chew, CEO of Nando’s Malaysia.
Putting flavour first and heat second, the Nando’s PERi-PERi sauce is unlike the ‘all-out-burn’ of other chilli sauces. The chickens are marinated in the sauce for 24-hours and then basted with ones choice of heat level ranging from Lemon & Herb to the fiery Extra Hot.
