Love Story Unfolds in Amethyst

Amethyst restaurant officially opened its doors on 16 Jan 2014 with much love in the air. One of Malaysia’s favourite celebrities, Hani Hatim (a.k.a Hunny Madu), shared this joyous moment with the celebration of marriage between Hani and her husband of over three years, Khairul Azhar Abdul Wahid.
Founder of Amethyst, Arash Farahmandi, had this to say at the launch event, “We know Malaysia’s favourite pastime is to eat and most would go to the ends of the earth in search of great food. Celebrating our undying love for food, we also wanted to highlight this special moment with a beautiful love story – that is the celebration of commitment between a lovely couple that Malaysians have grown fond of”.

Their love story was a beautiful setting for the launch event. The couple re-ignited their love for one another with Khairul presenting a beautiful Amethyst ring to his dear wife, Hunny Madu.
The Amethyst, a semi-precious gem stone is believed to bear great powers, which include healing, peace, love, protection, and happiness. With its rich purple tone colour, the Amethyst has also been long associated with royalty.
“I am ecstatic because after three years of marriage and with a baby girl in tow, we are still very much in love. The renewal of our love further affirms our feelings and promise. I am so glad to be here in Amethyst to celebrate this moment. Great food, great ambience and great moments worth cherishing for a lifetime,” said the very happy Hani Hatim.
Befitting the meaning of the stone, Amethyst is a mid-casual dining restaurant that harmoniously combines a touch of luxury and comfort in its deco of rich purple tones, private corners and warms lights. Its food also boasts generous portions of quality ingredients bursting with unique flavours, passion and love.

Beauty By Nature: Nuxe Skincare

Do you know that as you age, your skin begins to produce less oil, making it become drier and loose. This causes you to not just look old, but feel old too. It’s important to start using anti-aging skin care in our mid 20s.
I’ve tried a lot of anti-aging skin care but most of it is too moisturized for my oily skin. I’ve finally found one which is really good – Nuxe. Nuxe is the best-selling Cosmetic brand in France; their products are made effective by nature.
1)    Nuxe Nuxellence® Jeunesse
In the heart of the cells, mitochondria supply the cells with the energy to function properly. More vulnerable than cellular DNA, mitochondrial DNA weakens over time causing the cells to discharge themselves day after day.
After years of research, NUXE has launched Nuxellence® in year 2013,  a major anti-aging innovation that not only PROTECT but also REPAIRS mitochondrial DNA(1)   to reveal the skin’s youth and radiance.

It has a fondant and “second-skin” texture infused with subtle, feminine floral notes leaves the skin infinitely soft and velvety.

Review: SACHAJUAN Shampoo, Conditioner & Hair Repair

I’ve shared a new hair care brand that has reached Malaysia shore with you – SACHAJUAN here last year end.

Today I’d like to share more thoughts on its Shampoo, conditioner and hair repair after giving them a try.
SACHAJUAN Dry Hair Shampoo is an ultra-moisturizing shampoo for dry and chemically treated hair. This super moisturizing shampoo restores hydration to dry or chemically treated hair. Comprised of a proprietary formulation called Ocean Silk Technology, it provides optimal moisture and balance while repairing damage and taming frizz. Hair is left supple and strong with added shine, body, and bounce. 

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil

It is no myth that NUXE is a skincare staple of French women. You’d have noticed it if you travel around Paris, and many other countries. For more information about NUXE brand, kindly read my previous blog post here
Today I’d like to share more about NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil. NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil could be used on face, body and hair all year round, in summer and in winter. NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil is such a nice, elegant product. The oil absorbs right in and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and silky, with a nice sheen but not oily at all. It also moisturized my hair with just one spray.
The ingredients are almost 98% natural, including sopropyl isostearate, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, coco-caprylate/caprate, dicaprylyl ether, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, corylus avellana (hazel) seed oil, camellia oleifera seed oil, parfum/fragrance, tocopherol, borago officinalis seed oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, hypericum perforatum flower/leaf/stem extract, solanum lycopersicum (tomato) fruit/leaf/stem extract, caprylic/capric
Some beauty tips of using NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil:

Bestselling Exfoliator in Japan - Cure Natural Aqua Gel

Cure Natural Aqua Gel is the #1 bestselling defoliator in Japan, selling 1 bottle every 12 seconds. Cure's unique and gentle formula allows for it to be used on people with even the most sensitive skin. Cure's status as a cult hit and Japanese beauty product legend stems from the simple fact that Cure does what it promises: exfoliates gently and effectively, without any harsh chemicals or alcohol.

Good news for us who reside in Malaysia, Cure Natural Aqua Gel has been made available for us since 2013.
How to use?

After washing and drying your face, apply Cure Natural Aqua Gel all over your face. You'll see white kind of bumps (which is your dead skin cells) after a few minutes of circular massage. Use your fingers and gently make circular motions to remove the rest of the dead skin cells. Finally, rinse your face and apply skin care products.
I love the big clear bottle to see how much product you have left. The pump is also a good idea. Cure Natural Aqua Gel works life magic on my skin; you can visually see the dead skin cells coming off from your skin and my skin tone lightened up immediately, my skin feels so soft and smooth.

Cerro Qreen Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set Fibre Wool – Pink

Being a Beauty Junkie, I can’t live without a makeup brush. Makeup brush is a great tool for a face painter like me. If you are having long lashes, a lash brush is probably a lifesaver when it comes to applying mascara. And for me, I can’t live without a powder blush because I’m addicted to blusher. 
I’ve recently came across a cute and affordable Makeup Brush Set from the brand - Cerro Qreen. Its sweet pink colors have attracted me at first glance. Thanks to Natta Cosme, I received the Cerro Qreen Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set Fibre Wool in Pink for review.
I was very happy when I received the parcel from the dispatch boy. Natta Cosme has nicely packed the brush set in a sturdy paper box, and they are so sweet to send a piece of FR chocolate along too!

CERRO QREEN Cosmetic Makeup Brush Set Fibre Wool - Pink consists of 7 pieces of makeup brush below that’s not only for your face, but for your eyes as well;
1)      Powder Brush
2)      Eyeshadow Brush (Big)
3)      Eyeshadow Brush (Medium)
4)      Eyeshadow Brush (Small)
5)      Eyebrow Brush
6)      Eyeliner Brush
7)      Eyelash Brush

Our Today Moments

Most of you know that I’m a working mother of two young girls. I also have my personal blog and I like to attend events and workshops during weekend. Hence, my lifestyle is always hectic and not enough time.

I’ve done a survey by Friso Gold recently. From the survey, I realized that I have not spent enough time on my precious children. I am always caught up in daily-to-dos, such as sending and picking up the kids before and after work, household chores, running errands, attend events/workshops, manage my blog, and feed my children. As a result, I am always out of time for my kids, and I always feel guilty for not spending enough time with my girls.
I’ve been postponing plans with the girls during last school holiday simply because I don’t have time. I planned their activities based on what I need to do, for instance, I sent them to my mum because I have some launch events, or I leave them to nanny for spa review. I felt really bad for being such a lousy mum.

Friso Gold ‘Our Today Moments’ refers to the time we spend with our children, the time we set aside our daily to-dos and focus on “today”.  In another word, it’s about you making the effort to make every moment count with your kids - we call this quality time ‘Our Today Moments’.

From the survey, it found that while the Malaysian mum spends an average of 6 hours 45 minutes with her children in a day; and considers 60% of her time spent with her children as ‘quality time’. The working mum spends less time and considers a lower portion of her time spent with her children as ‘quality time’. Overall, a working mum spends about 2.5 hours lesser than a non-working mum or housewife with her children, and she considers only half her time with her children as ‘quality time’.
Just like me, more than half of working mums surveyed also feel she doesn’t spend enough time with their children, and we are feeling the tension to balance between work and family. Sometimes, we might have even missed out our children’s development.

Respect & Honour to Parents Not Lost On Younger Generation - Eulogy-Writing Competition Reveals Values Intact

A recent attempt to crowdsource for ideas has surprised the founders of Asia’s first online obituary website, Obpedia.com with strong participation in its Eulogy writing competition

“In conjunction with Obpedia.com and YouthsToday.com to promote Filial Piety among college youths and also to promote English writing in colleges, we came up with the idea for an eulogywriting competition and we were pleasantly surprised,” said founders Kevin Leow and Jason Cheong. 

“We thought the response would be poor as we felt that the younger generation of Malaysians are generally out of touch of values such as filial piety, but we are glad to be wrong,” said Leow. 

The winners are Jassie Looi, Kum Peng Han & Lisa Yeo who were selected based on criteria such as:
