Diet Food in Bazaar Ramadhan

Hello, as much as I enjoy my diet food, sometimes, I will look for other interesting food. I'm not a great cook but there's truly some simple and easy diet food that we can find in Bazaar Ramadhan and also make ourselves (if you want).

I noticed a lot of Ramadhan food tend to be a tad bit fatty, most of the food smell good but you'll regret if you break your diet rules. So, I'm pretty much start off my diet plan again. Why? I'm huge in sizes and my body starts to alarm me. I'm so worried that I can't fit into my wedding gown by the end of this year. Then, I decided to cut down my food intake. I avoid rice, but I still consume a little bit of bread, noodles, vermicelli, macaroni and etc .

Okay, back to the actual topic. I love to have 'popiah', 'pecal', 'tauhu sumbat' and soy milk. These are my top favourite food that I will get when I get the chance shop around in the Bazaar Ramadhan.

Popiah or known as spring rolls. Normally I prefer it wraps with long  beans, bean sprouts, stir fried eggs, a little bit of ham, lettuce, mengkuang shreds. Tell you, this food taste so, so good and no worries of getting lots of excess fat.

Pecal or Pecel is an Indonesian sauce based on chillies, peanuts, tamarind and coconut sugar. It is commonly served over boiled vegetables and ketupat rice or vermicelli . I love this to death, seriously. I think it is healthy because all the vegetables served without oil. Sometimes, my mom will make this though we aren't Malays. Well, just embrace the food no matter what races you are. Today I bought a packet of pecal from the Bazaar Ramadhan, it was too spicy for my taste, but overall it still deserves a credit. 

Tauhu sumbat is another my diet food this month. It serves best if you refrigerate it for a little while.
There are some variation in the vegetables part. Some people prefer using just cucumber whereas some enjoy it with cucumber shreds and carrot shreds. I personally enjoying both but think the sauce serves as a very important part in order to make it taste even greater.

Lastly, in order to fulfill the hunger, please eat more fibre. Diet doesn't mean that you don't eat anything and starve ourselves, it is all about eating healthy and in a smaller portion. Off course, a nice cardio workout will help to burn off more fats and calories. All ways remember, you are what you eat!

Oopss, I haul !

Ohlala.... I had a short trip with my hubby a week ago. Seriously I miss and love KL so much, not to mention the traffic jam. During my trip to KL, I was sick, I don't have much time to shop for clothing as it isn't part of my plan. Each time when I traveled, I would plan things I want to buy. I think I'm more concern on my skin, so I sort of missed and forgot to stop by some brand such as Zara, F21, Dorothy Perkins.
Oh well, it was Haze season, I caught flu too, everything was quite rushing actually.

I stopped by at Kiehl's twice in 2 different department store and got myself and mommy our all time cleansing oil. I've been using cellnique skincare for almost a year now, I hit pan very often, their items seems to run out faster than any skincare I've tried. So, I gonna stock up every 3months.

Start with Shu's famous cleansing oil. My mom always have the green bottle. I know Shu has pink, purple,yellow,etc... Recently the 'green oil' got re-formulated, the SA told me the texture is thinner, but the function was improved. I've yet to use it because I still have 1/2 bottle Shiseido cleansing oil. But, pinky promise, I will share my thoughts on this new version green oil. The SA gave me some samples, I think I might just include'em in review.

As for my ultimate skincare, I restock the toner,seaweed cleansing gel and the milk cleanser. I got the promotion set which cost around RM307.Sometimes, it is better to stock up when there's promotion, things kind of more worth it. I got a box (5pcs) of mask, very soothing and hydrating for free, LOVE it!
Seriously,I don't think I will repurchase the milk cleanser (I've mentioned in my previous review) but since it comes along with the promo set, I just take it. Plus, I seldom wear heavy makeup, so I shouldn't have any problem with the cleansing part.
 * always do double cleansing - cleaner skin and better skincare absorption *

Before I hit pan for my cellnique D'sensi calming cream, I always start searching other moisturizer. I can't use heavy moisturizer as it clog my pores and giving me tiny oil bumps. Grhhhh!!! I can't use scented skincare as it make my skin itch when exposed under the sun. I've read some blogs reviews, Youtube reviews. Then , I decided to give Kiehl's skincare a try. For the volume and price, I consider it as fair trade. I was very happy and pleased with the senior SA in MidValley outlet. She is very nice, clear guide and helpful. She gave some good advises too. I ended up buying the ultrafacial cream, skin rescue and blemish control treatment. I got some samples too, happy! The next day I stop buy at Empire Gallery, the SA isn't helpful, more like a self-service outlet, but they do give samples to try but not clear like senior SA in MidValley. I got hubby the oil free moisturizer, I didn't get the jumbo size as hubby sometimes don't like to use skincare. But so far, he is quite please and happy with the oil free moisturizer.

I decided to try some drugstore skincare. Nive pure& natural set cleansing lotion and toner RM18.90 only and the St.Ives green tea cleanser was on sale for RM20.80. I bought them and will post up a review soon.

Oopss, I did it again. Well, haul once a while like such is quite enjoying. What did you haul recently? Please share, I would love to know too....

Review: Biore UV Aqua Rich BB SPF50

Talking about current weather, the sun seems to bite my skin more than ever. The weather isn't good at all, most of the time it is extremely hot and dry. Things become even worse when I stay somewhere near the beach. Though I'm not super fanatic with fair skin, but seeing my skin become slightly tan make me feel a tiny bit uncomfortable and dang! freckles!

Few months ago, I saw some fellow bloggers posting about getting free sample for the newly release Biore UV Aqua BB. I went to facebook and click, I got a free sample, but it seriously make me wait until * neck long like a giraffe*.

Before the samples arrived, I went to Watson and got myself 1 big tube. I believe it was having promotion, so I bought at price around RM27.

As for the product details, everything pretty much already revealed in pictures attached.

First of all, I'm very pleased with the packaging. I think as I aged, I prefer simple packaging, not too fancy, so that I can travel with them easily. I like how it comes in a squeeze tube, hygienic wise and I'm able to control how much product I need.

It works more like a tinted sunscreen with SPF50. If you're have good skin/ minor skin problem, using this on its own is just fine. Concealer is needed for those who looking for a higher coverage. This item works best for paler skin probably people not tan than NC35.

I usually used it as sunscreen then set with my Stila Illuminating powder #10watts. I like how it looks on my skin, semi matte + glow. It does help in brighten and even out my skin tone. Sometimes I just apply it and I'm ready off to work. It doesn't feel sticky or heavy. Normally I will apply it from 9am-10pm, in between I do use some blotting paper to remove excess oil. I will consider the application is quite long lasting.

Next, talking about the texture, more like a combo of liquid and mousse. It blends on easily. I do feel and notice it hydrate some dry patch. A tube probably can last up to 3months.

Nevertheless, I will repurchase if I ran out the whole thing. Perfect for travelling.

Thanks for reading!

Project Used Up #1

Hooray, it is so, so good to see things we bought got used up. Sometimes, I tend to buy a lot, and a lot backups for items I like too. But then, when it becomes too much, it will only end up as trash, what a waste!
Thus, project used up came in. I'm glad I did it and yes, more to come. Then, only I allow myself to haul more skincare.

Some samples, not bad just serve as usual skincare.

All time favourites so far are skincare from Cellnique. I think this is the 3rd time I hit pan, the mask is perfect and works amazing for my skin.

Product I use maybe every other day / when I need. The Kose liquid wash took me forever to hit pan. Goodness, I like how foamy it is, but I hate it strip out my skin every time I use it. Avene cleansing water works just nice. I'm still wondering how compatible is it towards Bioderma H2O

2 tiny green bottles. The fragrance -- nice + fresh! (LE) so, don't think I can buy it anymore.
The It's Skin PO Effector: shrink pores, doesn't works for me at all. It feels smooth on skin. (not going to repurchase).

That's all for my vol.1 project used up. I feel proud and happy when these babies hit pan!

Have a nice day!

I'm Back

Hello, I'm back. I've a personal issue going on which makes me feel terrible and uncomfortable. Since I'm far away from my friends and family members, I literally went through alone and off course I burst into tears when I saw my Momma..... anyway, by gone were by gone. I decided to take a break and rest awhile from blogging, wondering lots of lots of things. Well, now I'm back and my moods seem to be more stable and relaxed.

Month of May was a bad month for me, but I had went trough. I miss blogging, those days when I was in my university, I used to blog actively and I met lots of super nice ladies here, but some of them no longer blog and slowly  I think we sort of lost contact, how sad. Beauty community in blog-sphere is strong, I find that at here (blogging community) we support each other, either morally,mentally or both. Eg: if you were divorce, these people are here for you, helping you, listen to you. I'm so thankful for all these. By the way, I miss doing swap and chatting with them so much.

Month of June, things went a bit better for me. Hubby and I went for a short trip. It has been awhile we didn't have our time together (just 2 of us) doing things that we love, meeting people that we missed, etc...
we even managed to survey our wedding bands which will be used by the end of this year ^_^

Tomorrow, month of July, I hope I'll be able to continue blogging in a more frequent pace.
Besides, I'll try to make this blog more like a lifestyle blog, I find that myself prefer reading blogs as such than  something that just talking about makeup and skincare...

Lastly, nice flowers from hubby =]
