Things I want to do in Langkawi

Beside Port Dickson beach (visited two years ago) and Pangkor Island (visited when I was in secondary school), I have never really been to any other beaches or islands in Malaysia.

I have always wanted to visit some other amazing beaches in Malaysia, like Perhentian Island, Redang Island and Langkawi Island. My friends used to tell me how amazing the beaches are, how fun is snorkeling, how clear is the water,  how white is the sand, how cute are the fishes, on and on. Looking all the pictures they showed me, I really wanted to travel there one day. I wanted to experience them on my own, I even dreamed of having a beach wedding LOL even though I have never been there.

Hence, I started to plan things here right before my trip to Langkawi in next few months. Why Langkawi? Because my brother has been there for 5 times and I have never. He used to make jokes of me just because I never been there. How stupid. Yet, he will never do something crazy like what I gonna list down and experience here.

Well, right back to the topic. Things I want to do in Langkawi:
First, Skydiving.

FYI, I am a genuine gemini girl, who is filled up of curiosity and unknown. I love adventure and I love exploring unknown. I guess all of us have that desire of being up on the blue sky , wishing to spread the arms wide and wing like a bird.
I love how freedom shower me and I believe that skydiving is definitely the most exhilarating activity that thrill my nerves and I can feel freedom most. I want to see the whole world under my feet. How tiny and how huge it appears right in front of my eyes. All started with a bravery jump.

Second, snorkeling.

To be honest, I barely know how to swim and I am afraid of water. I have the scariest experience when I was young, that I was almost drown in a pool. Since then, I have that memory appearing in my mind whenever I was surrounded by a huge pool of water.
I hope that I could walk out from this darkness and conquer it by making a big step - snorkeling. I wanted to be comfortable in water, exploring the colorful underwater. Swimming with the fishes, touch and feel them.

Third, enjoying sunset by the beach.

This will be the most romantic moment I feel. Enjoying the great horizon, feeling the same sea breeze, sharing the same scenery, capturing the same moment, creating the same memories, with the person I love most. Or maybe having a sunset dinner on cruise too? What about a proposal on the cruise or by the beach? LOL

Fourth, shop for duty free items - chocolate.

As a chocolate lover, how can I miss out the chocolate? I heard that Langkawi is a duty-free island and I gonna shop tons of them. Not forgetting to get some alcohol for my brothers as souvenir too.

Fifth, a great stay.

A great trip isn't complete without a great accommodation. Of course, I will need a sea view deluxe room from Bayview Hotel Langkawi. FYI, Bayview hotel is located in the heart of the downtown Kuah, 25 minutes from the airport, nearby most of the main attractions like Dataran Lang, Kuah Jetty,  Langkawi Wildlife Park & Bird Paradise and Makam Mahsuri.
I want to enjoy the night scenery in the room with my love one, having a sip of wine, sharing memories about the whole trip. So I would sure go ahead and book my stay at Bayview Hotel Langkawi.
For more information about the accommodation, feel free to check out Traveloka.

These are all the things I want to do in Langkawi and I really wish to complete them all soonest. How about your trip in Langkawi? Mind to share?

Boost your Skin Hydration | Mamonde Floral Hydro

It has been so long since my last sharing on my current skincare routine and you guys know I am a die hard fans for Mamonde, not only I have gotten some sponsored products, I even bought some products on my own!

Recently, I have come across some new products from Mamonde Floral Hydro line.
If you do actually study about the Floral Hydro line, all the products from this line are actually formulated by the Narcissus bulb extract, which is a flower that known for its excellent hydrating power and healing properties. The Narcissus bulb was found out that it has remarkable moisture storage power that offer molecular hyaluronic acid for better absorption and penetration into the skin.
Here comes the newly added and improved products - Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner and Floral Hydro Cream.


Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner
Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner
Like ampoule, like toner, Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner works well as both, gives our face ampoule-infused hydration everyday. This highly enriched moisture ampoule toner, formulated with moisture clumps that spread like water the moment it attaches the skin, forming a thin moisture layer on skin's, preventing the skin from dehydration.

This ampoule toner offers 2.8 times more moisturization comparing to the previous Floral Hydro Skin Softener.

Price: RM89 | 150ml
Unlike the usual toner that we used, this ampoule toner comes in clear gel form. Like a filled liquid bubble that lightly breaks into water particles and penetrate swiftly into the skin layer.
I love this ampoule toner so so much. Even though the texture is much concentrate comparing to the usual toner, yet surprisingly it penetrates into the skin so much faster, leaving my skin soft, with suppleness and dewy finish, without any stickiness or oiliness.


Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream
Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream
Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream, as a moisturizer right after toner. Upon the application, it leaves a refreshing and cooling sensation on the skin, restoring skin hydration while improving the skin texture instantly without leaving any sticky feeling behind.

Price: RM109 | 50ml
This improved moisturizing cream features a light texture, strong moisturizing level and Double Matrix Moisture Locking.
I did use the old bottle of Floral Hydro Cream in the past few months, I thought it was already good enough in terms of its benefit and penetration power. Until I discover the improved Floral Hydro Cream, it is surprising! Comparing both the non-improved and improved Floral Hydro Cream, the improved Floral Hydro Cream is slightly dilute in texture, yet the penetrating power is so much stronger and the moisture level is so much higher. I would recommend this as a base right before any application of makeup, if you're going for dewy korean look.

Personally, I love all Mamonde's products, not on advertorial based, but genuinely from my heart. Most of the skincare products, like the honey suckle toner, multipurpose rose gel, rose toner, floral hydro ampoule toner, or moisturising cream, they impressed me so so well! Not only the soothing floral scent, I love how it leaves my skin moisture and supple, without any stickiness or oiliness on my skin.

Dewy Skin | Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation

Oh yeah, I have uploaded a new video up on my Youtube channel. Go check out if you have not.
Actually my earlier plan was doing a foundation review but ended up doing a make up tutorial LOL. I was quite obsessed with Taeyeon's look that moment, so I was like "why not?" Hence, I am here to do a quick foundation review instead.

Back to the main purpose of this post, if you have been a fans of korean K-Drama or even K-Pop idols, and you are an absolute Korean Makeup trend followers, you must be really envy about those singers or actors radiant skin glow, LIKE ME! Looking them on the screen, my heart is jerking like " why all of them look so flawless one? Why their skin look so naturally glowy and healthy one?".

Instead of envy them on the screen, why not I create one for my own haha!
Here I am, introducing the Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Lumizing Fluid Foundation, which is my current favorite foundation as it helps creating most of my daily korean look!

Beside the Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid foundation, which is a best foundation for summer, I found the Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation, is so far one of the best foundation in creating korean dewy skin.

The difference of this two foundation was the Lasting Liquid foundation comes in a frosted bottle, while the Luminizing Fluid foundation comes in a clear bottle which best reflecting their respective characteristics.

With the Advanced Sensing Technology, this foundation helps us in achieving a lasting, natural glowy finish effortlessly. It synchronizes with our skin's tone, naturally blend into our skin and maintain our skin moisture levels up to 8 hours, leaves our skin in supple condition and radiant healthy complexion .
The texture of the Luminizing Fluid foundation is rather dilute and serum-like, with some reflective shimmer within. Surprisingly, It blends well into the skin, easily spread and goes on the skin smoothly. Significantly, the foundation is rather light-weight on the skin, the layering is much breathable and thin, it leaves the skin in a much glowy and moisture finish.
On the left, it is a picture of me before application of foundation.
Through the picture, we can clearly observe that the dark circle and red blemishes are rather obvious. The skin texture is rather rough, with bumps and the overall skin tone is rather uneven.

On the right, it is a picture of me after application of foundation.
First impression, my skin looks more even in complexion and smooth. Coverage wise, it is good enough to cover some redness on my skin. Yet, the coverage is buildable after few layers, just perfect to cover the dark circle naturally.

On the left, it is a picture of me with full make up, using Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation as base. Definitely flawless and surprisingly it blends into my skin tone so well even after I have put on a few layers of setting powder.

On the right, it is a picture of me after 10 hours. I have been cafe-hopping and shopping at a total of 3 difference places. Some oil blotting action took place in the middle of hours, as it is a moisturizing foundation, it appeared slightly oily after few hours as compare to some other foundation. Yet, still bearable and it wasn't that overly-oily. Some of the foundation fell off, obviously on the forehead and slightly on the cheek, as I can clearly see my real skin and some red spots appearing in the picture. However, there wasn't any cakey-ness at all! Foundation did not oxidize that badly as comparing to some other cushions that I have used.

Personally, I love this foundation. It is super light-weight on the skin, so breathable, as I am wearing nothing. I really love how it moisture my skin and helps me in achieving that ideal Korean dewy skin.

Taeyeon Inspired Makeup Tutorial | Make Me Love You

Hey, it's May! 
Almost half of the year gone and I thought of updating my Youtube Channel with something different. I have done quite a number of make up tutorials which are something simple and most of the make up are rather wearable, especially for daily use.
With my sister's influence, I have come across some K-pop songs recently, got to know few Korean songs and knowing some of the K-Celebrities.

Taeyeon is one of my favorite singers among all, which is my sister's favorite as well. You know how crazy she goes into Taeyeon, setting her picture as wallpaper, even subscribing to her MV's channel using my Youtube account. LOL

Randomly, Taeyeon's new song popped on my Subscription lists and I started to listen to her very first song - Make Me Love You. I love how she sings so sweetly, with her voice and definitely she's really good in singing.

Here goes my addiction to her song and make up! Yeah! In the music video of Make Me Love You. A scene where she is seated in middle, surrounded by 'a sea of flowers' and in her white flare dress! Her make up is just another boom for me! Love at first sight.
Here goes my inspiration for this Faux Flower Freckles Makeup, inspired by Taeyeon. Making used of the dried flowers given by Braun Buffel LOL
The main focus will be fully on the cheek, with heavy orange-ish blusher, with some pop of tiny flowers as freckles.
