How to Change New Smartphones Yearly without Burning a Hole in Your Pocket

Still using your old smartphones model from 3 years back? Or you are eyeing on the new iPhone 7s but not affordable to change it because you are still tied with carrier’s2 years plan? Not anymore! With ReNew+’, changing smartphones yearly is affordable and no longer a dream.
Launched by Regional IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) company,  ComputerAsia Sdn Bhd ( brandname CompAsia), the smart ownership programme called ‘ReNew+’ is set to fundamentally change the way people buy and own their smartphones in Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. The introduction of ReNew+marked a rare pioneering move ever undertaken by an ITAD company to penetrate and compete in the new smartphone devices markets in these countries.
Set up in 2012 to reinvigorate and impact the ITAD industry Asia-wide, CompAsia operated its first facility in Petaling Jaya in 2012 to undertake secure data removal, repair, rebuild, refurbish and remarket used consumer electronics such as laptops, desktops, servers, PC monitors, tablets and smartphones. The refurbished machines and devices are sold directly to consumers via its optimised online retail store ( and its distribution channels located nationwide. 4 years later today, CompAsia has also expanded to Singapore and built its second ITAD facility in the Philippines in 2016, as the Company continues to grow to become one of Asia’s leading and trusted suppliers of professionally-refurbished consumer electronics, IT and telecommunications equipment.
CompAsia's Team

With the maiden launch of ReNew+in early November 2016, CompAsia has just made buying a new smartphone every year more affordable. This smarter upgrade programme unleashes its first product offering - it allows customers in Malaysia to pay only a low monthly fee for a new iPhone 7s or 7+ and also allows them to trade them in after 12 months of payments to get the next generation iPhone without the hassle of any upgrading or termination fees.

Customers just need to purchase the latest iPhones from CompAsia‘s online store at or from the participating stores of its collaborating partners. Tied to MayBank’s EzyPay that offers an interest-free instalment plan of up to 24 months, this robust upgrade programme allows eligible customers purchase the new iPhones using Maybank’s credit cards. With low monthly payments and no upfront payment, ReNew+also comes bundled with ‘Phone Guard’ that provides a one-year free protection for cracked screens.

In a nutshell, ReNew+ is uniquely designed to provide a smarter choice for owners who want to upgrade their high end smartphones every year. However unlike other traditional plans offered by local carriers, ReNew+ is uniquely carrier-independent as it frees users from having to be locked to a single carrier for two years. This super-flexible upgrade plan simply allows owners the freedom to choose new carriers or even continue with current ones. More significantly, users are also free to switch carriers even after 12 months without the hassle of getting out of a carrier’s specific two-year plan.
Julius Lim, CEO of CompAsia

ReNew+ is launched to initially offer upgrades for iPhones because there is always a great demand for them in the resale market as these cherished premium-priced iOS devices are still unaffordable by many in the developing Asian markets. Additionally, iPhone users tend to upgrade more frequently than other smartphone owners,” said Julius Lim, CEO of CompAsia at the launch event that was held at Food Foundry, PJ.

Fly Me to Vietnam with Vietjet

Working in a multi-national company, I have the chance to meet people from everywhere in the World. Recently, some of my Vietnam colleagues from Ho Chi Minh City had shifted to base in Malaysia office. As a local, I invited them for lunch and take them around KL. In return, they also tell me stories and things happening in Vietnam.
It has come to my surprised that Vietnamese in the South prefer sweet, not spicy food and whereas in the central of Vietnam, they eat very spicy food. Hence we could their famous dishes like beef pho, bun cha (barbecued pork with rice noodles) and goi cuon(Vietnamese translucent spring roll) that taste from sweet, sour to spicy. Vietnamese is into coffee too, so as a coffee junkie I would surely grab a few of strong and flavourful Vietnamese coffee when I am there.

In fact, it’s a fun feeling when seeing the familiar Asian faces but speaking in English with Vietnamese accent. They are quite shy but very friendly, just like us! Some of the cities that I would visit if I gotten a chance to fly to Vietnam would be;

One must visit Hanoi as it is Vietnam’s capital city. It has undergone rapid transformations in recent decades. Considered one of the most beautiful of the colonial Indochinese cities, Hanoi is a combination of old-world charm and modern developments brought on by its recent surge in tourism.

We always see Hanoi in movies and reality show; the motorbike-filled streets look really amazing. Besides, I would love to visit its lovely parks and museums to streetside restaurants and world-class coffee. What’s more, Hanoi has 4 seasons in a year, and I would definitely visit it in Autumn and Spring.

Ha Long Bay
Ha Long Bay is another famous UNESCO World Heritage site. Located at about 170km east of Hanoi in northern Vietnam. “Ha Long” means “bay of descending dragons” and it is an archipelago made up of 1,969 islands.

At Ha Long Bay, we could enjoy Bai Chay tourist boats, budget and midrange cruises, or luxury cruises. The more adventurous at heart may also choose to kayak or take a seaplane for more panoramic views of its limestone islands.

Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is the largest and most developed city in Vietnam. Commonly known as Saigon, It is often described as a vibrant, dynamic, highly energetic city that has everything a city traveller could hope for – from timeless temples to towering skyscrapers, classy restaurants to unassuming street stalls, the finest hotels to the cheapest guesthouses.

Online Shopping Made Easy with ezbuy Malaysia

Call me a shopaholic! I fall in love with online shopping especially for the cheap and modern products from China. In fact, I believe we all are! As I see most of my friends have been buying online since few years ago. But buying online from China (e.g.Taobao) is quite hard especially for the people who can’t read Chinese, who do not have AliPay, difficult to sign up, no local customer service available, and poor after sales service. Furthermore, the expensive and slow shipping plus needed to spend a lot of time liasing with seller, limit items or additional shipping fees incurred, and the most irritating part where some forwarders are unreliable have made a pullback for buying online.
However, the situations are not happening anymore with ezbuy Malaysia.

ezbuy Malaysia provides hassle free signup, local customer service is also there for us, it also provides after sales support, wrong order, damaged parcel or missing parcel support. ezbuy Malaysia also has an Inhouse logistics which means more responsive and flexible pick-up and delivery options.

The cool part is it has the lowest International shipping fees with variety of shipping methods for almost every kind of purchase. The lowest shipping rate is just RM4.50 per 500g & No Agent Fee involved. Even better, we could choose the Prime Service where we could ship unlimited items at only RM8.80 nett at Which means, regardless of our parcel size, weight and quantity, we could ship everything at only RM8.80 per checkout with ezbuy Malaysia’s Prime Service.
 With that, we could arrange own time and own target for our shopping haul.

Tasty Creamy Cheesecake from Cat & The Fiddle

I am a dessert lover, and when given a choice among many cakes, I would always choose cheesecake. In fact, cheesecake is also my husband and my girls’ great loves. However, it’s hard to find a tasty creamy cheesecake in Malaysia but I am glad I found one - The Cat & The Fiddle Cheesecake. Originated from Singapore, Cat & The Fiddle is the first online specialist cheesecake store in Singapore that is specially created by Singapore’s iconic dessert chef, Daniel Tay.

3 Reasons You Should Visit Hairworx Studio

As a beauty blogger, I visit hair salon to get my hair cut, colour and treatment done at least once a month. It’s a monthly routine to get my hair fix by the professional. 
Last month, I had an amazing experience at Hairworx Studio for a hair color and treatment. Today, I gonna tell you the 5 reasons why you should visit Hairworx Studio.
No. 1: Originality - Hairworx Studio is using MoltoBene Professional products that are fully imported from Japan.
Hairworx Studio is owned by Trendz Empire Sdn Bhd, which is the sole Distributors of MoltoBene Professional products, a top hair salon brand and products are fully imported from Japan. Apparently Hairworx Studio has 2 outlets in KL, one at Kuchai Lama and another one at Menara RuYi, Taman Seputeh. I had chosen Hairworx Studio Taman Seputeh because it is near to my office.

No. 2: Professionalism – The hair stylists are professional and will provide advice when necessary.

[Review + Giveaway] Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

How many of you are still using the conventional cleansing oil to remove makeup daily? For me, I was a cleansing oil user for many years, but it had caused some skin problems to me a few years ago. My skin felt irritating, dry, and it also causing breakouts on my skin.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Luckily I had discovered the Micellar Cleansing Water last year. Micellar Cleansing Water works like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying. In fact, there are quite a lot of Micellar Cleansing Water brands available on the market but I have found the one that is working perfectly and also insanely affordable, that is Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.
Launched not long ago, Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water offers a few functions in one bottle. We can use it to removes makeup, cleanses and soothes our skin all at 1 gesture.
I like its no-rinse, gentle and easy-to-use formulas which made it perfect for travelling and late nights. I just pour it on a cotton wool pad, and wipe off my makeup with it.
See, my skin is perfectly clean after just one gentle wipe with Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I don’t have to harsh rubbing to remove my makeup. It even removes waterproof mascara like magic. What I like most is its lightweight enough to leave skin feeling revitalized, soothed and comfortable.

Our Summer Splash Party with Schwarzenbach Swimsuits

Hurray, the year end examination is finally ended! To reward my girl for studying hard in her exam, we have decided to throw a summer splash party for she and her friends to beat the heats as well as to release the stress. Hence, we have invited a few good friends to join our summer splash party which was happened last weekend.
To kickstart the summer splash party, let's prepare some checklist;

Inflatable tubes – checked
Watergun – checked
Swimming goggles – checked
Sunblock – checked
Snacks and water – checked
Last but not least – swimming suits – oh oh they have outgrown their old swimming suits!
So, I quickly brought them to Parkson @ IOI City Mall to try our luck to get some brand new swimming suits. Parkson @ IOI City Mall has quite a lot of swimsuits brands, and we were attracted by Schwarzenbach counter. It has everything we need including swimming suits for the kids, swimming suits for myself and swimming suits for my hubby! Not only that, the latest Schwarzenbach’s Tropical Party Range which was put on the mannequins is stylish, beautiful and practical to wear.
My girls fell in love with the kids swimsuits while I fell in love with the bikinis. We of course tried out the swimming suits and bought them home at last.

So now, everything is ready for our summer splash party, yay!
We invited 2 of their male playmates to the summer splash party at our condo. It was indeed a fun outing day at the outdoor pool to keep cool and quench the summer heat. 
I am happy that the kids had a wonderful splash time with their new swimming suits.
