Prettia Hair Dye in PINK

It was on the 10th that baby sister told me of the ONLINE SALES happening in Natta Cosme. She was scouting for the colour and finally, we have decided to go for Prettia Fluffy Foam Hair Color Sweet Pink and Raspberry Brown


Why I was persuaded?
1) I have never heard of the brand. Baby sister Google it and found out that it is under the brand of Kao, which means it has different names in different market. Thus, Liese and Pretttia are the same product. So my level of trust to this never-heard-before brand have greatly elevated. (Lol, that's me!!)
2) Affordable (Only 15, so much cheaper compared to other brands sold in the market)
3) Easy to use (foam type of hair dye, just like shampooing your hair)
4) I am not trying it alone ; )


The following day , 11/02/2015, we paid online and planned to collect the items at the physical shop of Natta Cosme. Earlier baby sis received a call notifying that the colour I chose (Raspberry Brown) wasn't available so we can choose it when picking up the other item at the shop itself later.

In the end baby sis chose the replacement item and I go with the pink one that she chose. We were very excited.


Left is mine (Prettia Fluffy Foam Hair Color Sweet Pink) and right is baby sister's:

Thank you for choosing for the replacement colour. ^^

(Left is mine, right is hers)
The colours look rather similar from the packaging. Mine seems to have a tinge of red/pink while sister's is of no red/pink element in it.
Let's take a closer look of what we have here...

Pour bottle #1 (small red opaque bottle) into bottle #2 (big translucent bottle, already contain a solution). Then insert the  foamer cap (nozzle) to bottle 1. The packet is conditioner for your hair afterwards.

How-to?
(It's all in Japanese so I gotta copy-paste instructions from Amazon, thank you!!)
* Perform Skin Allergy Test 48 hours before using this product.
* Wear gloves before handling this product.
* Make sure your working area is cleaned.
* Use this product on a DRY hair.
1. Add the No.1 Bottle into No.2 Bottle.
2. Cap the No.2 Bottle and shake well to mix the content.
<<DO NOT SHAKE VIGOROUSLY as I have read from other blogs which says that the mixed solution should be foamy when dispensed; if shaked too vigorously, foam would have formed in bottle and when dispensing it won't be the the form of foam but liquid, thus reducing the efficiency of dying your hair even I guess.>>
3. Switch to the Foamer Cap (nozzle).
4. Squeeze the No.2 Bottle gently and apply the foam to your hand.
5. Apply the foam to your Dry Hair. 6. Massage your hair firmly and gently.
6. Make sure the foam is all over your hair.
7. Leave the foam on your hair for 20~30 minutes.
8. Rinse off thoroughly.
9. Use the hair conditioner to coat your hair.

Before I wash them bubbles off :)

Waiting patiently for 20-30 minutes and click away with my camera. ^^

The before and after of my hair!!
Top left is BEFORE I dye it. So golden and not even huh?
Bottom left, done rinsing my hair (no time to snap 'coz hurry off to fetch daddy). Nonetheless, you can see the more redd like hair huh! So glad but not that obvious in pictures. It somehow have made my hair darker though ^^
Right, was taken 4 days later. quite even, less red, more like a caramel brown colour. Okay right? ^^

Thoughts about product:
Smell? Super pungent of ammonia. When inhale there is this super chilly sensation and when it us near my eyes, they feel cold and uncomfortable too..  . :/
Effectiveness? Not as reddish-pink as shown on illustration of box. Colour was transferred quite fast and even colour almost. I only left the bubbles to rest on my head for a good 20 minutes only.
Price? Rm15. Very affordable
Repurchase? YES for me as it was quite effective and affordable. But a BIG NO to those of HIGHLY SENSITIVE SCALPS /nose and also eyes.

*awaits for my baby sister's review about her hair dye soon!*

The Little Black Dress of Hanging Jewelry Organizer

When I think about organizers, we would see reviews mostly about organizing one's beauty stuff and etc. What about those who hoard watches, necklaces, earrings and etc?

On the 17th January 2015, sister and I bought some stuff at MR. DIY Store, Seremban. One of it was:

The Little Black Dress of Hanging Jewelry Organizer.



On-the-box-info:
~ two-sided organizer hangs on arod or hook to maximize space and swivels
~ 36 clear vinyl pockets
~ 18 hooks & loop closures 
~ stylish way to store earrings, necklaces and bracelets

Cost for only RM 6.90, which in my opinion is super cheap for an organizer.

So I went and compare similar online goods without including the shipping fee... Guess what? The prices are still slightly much more expensive on Qoo10 site, ranging from RM 12.70 to RM 39.60

At GM Klang, a place where you can get wholesaler price, they also sell much more expensive!
I saw a similar kind of hanging organizer, just that the bottom half have holes for you to hang your scarves.....guess how much it cost???

I don't exactly remember but I think it is either RM 29 or RM 38. Anyhow, it is still very expensive compared to my deal! ^^

So I think this organizer sold at Mr. DIY is a DEAL for us ladies, especially.
Only RM 6.90 to declutter your jewellery a bit if you haven't yet.

This is how my organizer looks like, for now. ^^




Sorry for the mess, was just hanging for the sake of taking a picture of it. ^^

Now that I have the time to write this post, I went and count the number of clear pockets, hooks and loop closures.

Guess what?

Hmph....

There are actually 30 clear vinyl pockets and 14 hooks & loop closures.
Feel cheated right this moment.
But uhh..... the online ones I also went and count. Some are 36 like said but the others are like what I have counted. So I guess it is okay to forgive?? hmm.....

All for you to decide whether this is a to STEAL DEAL or not.

Pros:
-declutter jewellery instantly
-easy to store, see and use
-cheap

Cons:
-personally would not like to store earrings at the pockets coz  I think it looks messy.

Repurchase?
No. One is enough and looking for a box organizer kind for my earrings collection. ^^
Any suggestions?

Anyways, thank you for reading and will update more soon ^^

Love is the Answer

In conjucntion with Valentines' Day, I would like to share with you on a topic I have heard in a radio station sometime back.

***rewind***

One fine noon on 19012015 one program on the radio was talking about love. That "love suffices any question." (爱是你一切的答案)

I was like...are you sure?it's not always possible...especially in a cruel world we live in now.

In the program they talk about our life as in a bus. Different stops. Either you stay in it or get off it, you'll still meet people who plays a certain role in your life.

Love this saying of life as a bus / bus stop. And I fully agree with the saying. How one's life has become is determined by one's action at one particular time and etc etc. So please do not take blame or blame another but learn to know that it exist and to embrace it.

Acknowledge, Learn, Accept, Grow.
I am still learning.

Then they went on and said that in life, one can have the "first love" and "second love".

"First love" as in when one meets the first love of their life where intimacy and responsibilities are involed. (Eg: marriage and give birth to ensure continuity of generation)

Yes, I am in this stage right now.
I feel the stress of the responsibility yet I am excited about it. Though I may not be doing something serious and aligning with my education but I truly want to do what I love. Was planning to do something related to my education in my later life though. Not sure if it'll happen or not. Well. That's how it is. Just wait and see.

"Second love" refers to one who have lesser responsibility and your support system (eg. colleagues) becomes your new love. I guess it is the companionate love that I have learnt in one of the many subjects I had in my degree. The need of intimacy is decreased and directed to the need of doing/learning something new & commiting in constant exercise (not so vigorous though).

I wonder what I will be doing then?
Maybe I may be continuing my education? Lol. Travelling sounds great! Volunteer programs maybe?I have zero idea about it since I am nowhere near this stage yet. So what do you think you'll be doing in this stage? ;)

To the speaker, she would do exercises , go for professional talks about deciphering dreams, questioning life and death issues and such. She and her companions (both male and female colleagues) had decided to travel around the island of Taiwan, which she had never done in her younger days.

Anyhow, I feel inspired and calm when listening to the program. Just like to share with you guys and girls and see what you think about this topic. :)
MORE CURIOUS OF WHAT YOU DID / PLAN TO DO IN YOUR SECOND LOVE ;)

Thinking game starts especially at night, for me.
Go exercise your brain lovelies and use your time well :)

Thank you for reading this wordy post. :)

Restoran Setul (Seafood Restauarant), Seremban

DINNER with a good VIEW 

Venue: Restoran Setul (Seafood Restaurant), Seremban.
Location: It is near the exit of the LEKAS highway exit but not reaching it yet; meaning, you are still under the state of Seremban (there is no given address anywhere at that time).
When: 9th January 2015


At first sight, I really think that it is similar to the concept of Valley Resort, Pahang.

Not to be judgmental so fast... so I just snapped pictures and move along.

First snap with the great view of the place. ^^

The entrance of the restaurant :)

Picture taken with flash. Love the scenery already with the colourful lighting. 

Picture taken without flash, but blurred... sorry for my wobbly hands.



Here were the food.

A full capture of all the ordered dishes. The Centre is of some spicy flavored sauce with fish. I think it is okay only. But if you were to ask me which is my favorite in order I would say this is my 2nd preferred dish. ;)
Fried prawn with bread crumbs or something. Since I don't really eat prawn I can't tell you what I think but majority said it was OK. :)

Of "sotong", Japanese tofu, mushrooms and carrot. I just had tofu and mushrooms. Just a normal dish I think.

The left dish of vegetables was my favourite. Since most are seafood it was easy to select my most preferred dish. ;) The vegetables were well-cooked and not too oily if I remember correctly. The dish on the right is of calamari or something. I did try to eat the crispy crumbs as big sis strongly recommend me to try it. Lol. I guess you should order this? :)

On the far end was of french beans with minced pork and pork fat covered with soy sauce. Quite good too :) we were all fighting for the pork fat. Lol. The dish on the front was not that great and the portion is very smalllllllll......it is "marmite chicken". Our first impression was, "what is this?" & "so less??!" 

I wouldn't say that the food were that great of a taste to my tastebuds so I got some polls going and yeah, sad to say the food wasn't that great overall. It made me think if this food post was post-worthy...and I say I should post to inform you that you SHOULDN'T SPEND YOUR $$$ HERE!

So we went to walk around for a closer pond view.





Here we see the chicks or ducks ...



And we came back for dessert of "gui ling gao".



Not so yum. Quite bitter I would say. Baby sis and grandma don't want to eat. So I "sapu" (it's a Malay term meaning that I ate it all! ^^) all, plus baby sister's mini help in eating a very little portion for me so we can all leave the place fast fast. You know why? Coz the toilet place wasn't fully constructed....just floors and tap for the females toilet. (I don't think the construction is done yet?!)

Overall, I would say that the place is good for its ambience but not great for its food or your pocket of $$$ as it is quite expensive for a small town to charge that kind of price. Even the price of fishing is expensive. You MUST pay for a minimum of 3 hours (that is RM 30 already) and the subsequent 15-30 minutes for RM 5 or the subsequent hour for RM 10.

Of the similar concept of the restaurant, I would still say Valley Resort, Pahang WINS!!!

Thank you for reading. Have a good day :)
