A Minor Car Tragic Break In

As some of you may know already. On Tuesday,  my car was broken into.
image
It was a very horrifying experience for me even though it may be just a minor incident for anyone else.
At 9pm after my dinenr at Taman Megah, I went to a local sundary shop to buy some groceries.  It was located next to Fatty Crab, one of the famous where-to-eat place in Kuala Lumpur and there were loads of people around outside waiting for seats. I parked my car (driver side facing towards the mainroad) at the main road, and went down to grab some stuff. I left my car for only about 10 minutes. 
As I walked towards my car, I did not notice anything unusual or anyone near enough. I unlock my car remotely and got into my car. As usual I would place my handbag in the middle compartment.  Right as I looked up, I saw this
image
I was stunned and shocked for about 5-10 seconds not knowing how to react and i instantly looked around to see if there was anyone nearby or hiding in the backseat of my car as well.
I locked my car, started my engine and started moving because I felt it was better than staying and being still. Not knowing whether or not to make a police report or whatso. I made phone calls and kept moving around.  Little did I know, my uncle whom I stay with was at the same row of shops as well!!!
Nothing was stolen as they did not manage to take anything. And no I did not have any valuables in the car.
image
They did not manage to break in successfully.  As I have installed the security anti-smash film. It took them longer and requires much harder work. They were pros and smart and knew what and how to do it.
P/S my car alarm did not go off as they did not hit the car alarm wiring system.
image
I remember driving back home that night and to the workshop the next day to hear crackling noises of the window glass and until today, I still fear those noises. And everytime when I close my doors, I feel it being fragile.
I fixed my car the next day. But there was nothing much I can do about it. I wouldn’t and cant imagine how would it have been, if I was in the car or stuck in traffic. The fear is something no man or woman can handle at such sudden attack. But all I can say is. Keep calm. Take a deep breathe. And think instead of panic! Talk to yourself and maybe it helps to clear your mind. But do not be a mess and panic in situations.  Stay safe.

Money or Passion?

image
Recently there has been a topic.
Passion or money?
Money, power and fame is something that many of us chase after.  We turn into someone who we are not really. Without realizing it, the monster or devil inside overtakes you.
Im not trying to speak deep or be all philosophy and all that. But its something that has been bugging me. I’ve been asked this question many times. Passion or money?
I would always say passion. Then I get a respond “yea! Cause you never know how it feels to be poor to realize how important money is.”
First things first, I did not and never say money is not important.  But I was given a choice to pick between two. And yes I have had moments where I am down to RM1 in my wallet for the whole week or two. You can say I dont know how it feels to be poor all you want. But this is me, you don’t know what I have been through.
I’ve been through a phase where I felt money was so important to me. With money, you get fame and status, with fame and status, you get power. So it all starts with money. But….
how much is enough?
When you have rm1, you would want rm100, and when you have that. You would go for rm1000 and to million and billions.
You hear so many stories on how fathers work double jobs or so hard and late for money, and end up not spending time with their families.
So I came up to this conclusion myself. People like that dont know how to love. There is no balance and in their mind, its all about money, fame and power. And they see nothing else. Why chase for a mansion with three floors and swimming pool and maybe even a lift in your house with maybe a ferrari and two or three merce and bmw and constantly changing cars every two three years. Or appear on articles and be known wherever you go? Im not talking bout people who were born with a silver spoon. But young people, generation-y people are all having that same dream. They want to achieve their goals and dreams before getting married or thinking of others.
What about building a future together?? Rather than building a future alone? Many people who chase money over passion often hurt people around then without realizing it.
So reflect on yourself, think what you really need and not what you want more. Be who you are and dont change to “fit-in”. Because those who mind dont matter, and those who matter dont mind. You always hear stories and quotes on how true friendship or true love can be tested and known when you are in trouble.

Everyday Heels

image
Ever have that perfect pair of shoe that you could go all day with it. Run and jump in it and do whatever you want. Stand whole day in it? That perfect comfortable pair of shoes.  Be it heels or flats.
I am personally obsessed with heels and flats. All sorts of heels from wedges or platform to peep-toe to pumps or even stilletoes. But itd not every pair I own or come acorss that is OH-MY-GOD-SO-AMAZING.
My first pair of OMG heels were a pair of blue platform pumps from lipstick. A pair I bought from Myers while I was in Australia.  Unfortunately,  my friend misplaced it when I stayed overnight at her place and it went missing. AUD$80 gone.
I was devastated and when I went back to Australia,  Lipstick was carrying any of that collection.  So sad. So I bought two pairs from betts. Which was comfy. But just not it.
And a few more pairs after that. But in Jan thus year,  I was at Zara and there were having sales. Bear in mind, I dont really buy shoes from Zara cause there are over MYR200 for a pair.  I not that siao kay!
But!!! On that day, it was on sale. MYR79 only!!!! I was like omgggggg… have to buyyyy. When I tried it on. It was sooo comfy. Pig skin leather and all that. So I paid for it before I placed it back. From that day onwards, it became my fav pair.
It is comfy. It did not give me blisters at all!!! So I did not have to “break in”. I could stand all day. And that became my everyday wear heels. From office to shopping. And I was still fine all day.
But now… here comes my concern, I need to find another pair!!! Because this pair is breaking down soon already.  Sigh. And its not just the price,  design, material, comfy but the height and overall.
Hopefully, ill be able to find a new comfy everyday pair again.

GWENBEAUTY | FAIRY BEAUTY: FAIRY WHITEZ/BLOSSOM

By now, most of us would have heard about collagen drinks or Q10 drinks and all that anti-aging, or slimming and skin benefit drinks. I’ve never really gotten the chance to try it out as I have always doubt the taste and trust me, I was given a few samples, and i wasn’t a fan of it.
Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 5.05.00 PMHishop has sponsored me a 1 month supply of Fairy Whitez. Previously they have sponsored me the Fairy Blossom and this time it is the Fairy Whitez. So today I will be reviewing it as well as giving it a little comparison between the Fairy Whitez and Fairy Blossom.
Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 5.08.42 PM

Firstly, one box contains 10 bottles. Each bottle is 22ml. So a bottle a day and a box would last you a month. It’s very convenient small and easy to carry around.

See how the Fairy Blossom (above) and Fairy Whitez (below) fits into my hand? It’s small and handy and you can finish it in one large sip.

So after seeing all the products, what is Fairy Whitez or Fairy Beauty really?
Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 5.09.47 PM
Taken from their website, and the brochure that comes in every box. It explains who and what Fairy Beauty is. Magical effect in just 30 days (1 box). provided you consume everyday of course. It is also safe, scientifically proven, effective and it is also halal (if you were wondering) as this is produced and manufactured in Malaysia.

So if you are or have any concerned of what certificates and labels do they have, here is it. Or you could even go to their website for more information.
Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 5.10.01 PM
Now into the main topic, What does Fairy Whitez and Fairy Blossom do?
As you can see in the list above (taken from the website) it claims that Fairy Whitez can lighten your skin tone, reduce pigmentation, prevent acne & pimples and give your skin much more moisture.
Whereas for Fairy Blossom, it gives your body a firm, brash enlargement, relieve menopause and menstrual cramps. (so girls, how important is this for you?)
I can’t say which is much popular because both is equally good and effective but from a little research I did among my friends, many who are below 25 would go for Fairy Whitez and only those who are much more concerned with their weight, breast and monthly cramps would go for Fairy Blossom. For me? I feel that both is a perfect combination. You can switch alternatively between days.
What are the ingredients in each of Fairy Whitez/Blossom?Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 5.10.27 PM
Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 5.10.34 PM
As you can see both holds different active ingredients, and each of them gives you different benefits and different outcome. So if you are looking for better skin, radiance, flawless skin, bye bye to pigmentation, sensitive skin, acne, and blackheads. Then Fairy Whitez would be for you. If you are looking for skin rejuvenating, vitally, anti-aging, mood swing, and improving your overall internally, then it would be Fairy Blossom for you. But if you want all the benefits, get both. 
Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 5.09.55 PM
What caught my attention wasn’t the whitening or the bust firming, well you get that a lot in other products that ‘claims’ to do it. but first, HOW many of them actually work and taste good? Secondly, how many of them gives you other benefits asides those? I was firstly attracted to the Salmon Placenta. Flip a magazine or newspaper and you will see ads on Sheep-placenta or goat-placenta or whatever animal placenta they can provide you. But firstly, what benefit does all those animals provide you? One thing we all know is that, Salmon is very good for us.
You may google “benefits of salmon” and you get loads of articles and how-to website telling you what sort of benefits you get out of it. For salmon placenta, you get to improve your skin flexibility and firmness while reducing wrinkles and increasing skin moisture. That means reducing dry skin to improve skin texture and smoothness. Skin rejuvenation and anti-aging, finer skin texture and balanced toned colour. Improve skin blood circulation and improvement in skin elasticity, thickness, reduction of wrinkles, lightening of facial pigmentation and refining of facial pores. Promote cell regeneration, regenerated cells, tissues, and organs. Vast improvement in immune system. Enhancement in stamina and energy level of body .Boost up sexual drive with endurance and vitality. And all the other benefits that salmon placenta can give you. But one thing for sure, it’s not an overnight miracle but more like a long-term supplement.

My thoughts.
I’ve been on this for two months, and i can say, I have much more energy, skin looks brighter. but i can’t say if it is because of that or because of my skincare as well. I don’t expect an overnight miracle whitening, if not, can you imagine an overdose case? You’d be white and pale as ghost, like you just bleached your face or something. LOL.
Definitely would recommend and give it a try. Every women needs to take care of themselves. Prevention is better than cure.
Taste wise? I prefer it being chilled, because of the salmon placenta, and all that concentrated essence, drinking it at room temperature makes my whole body HOT. and I personally don’t like and don’t enjoy hot or warm drinks. The Fairy Whitez taste like concentrated berries and the Fairy Blossom taste like apply and yam.
Price wise, it is RM89 per box. so that comes down to RM0.89 per bottle.
