Body and Face Painting Gig

Dear Friends

I did some face and body painting during a children's party during Dec last year. I kept the pictures and was only inspired to share them today.

I was invited by the organizer of the party to do some face painting for the children. I really enjoyed my time there. It was fun. Most of the girls requested for flowers. I painted for some boys but I had no time to take picture of my work.

Before that, I did some painting on my own body.

Do contact me if you need a face painter in Petaling Jaya/KL area.

Flash by Jimmy Choo - An Ultra Modern Floral

Dear Friends

Happy Chinese New Year! Today is the first day of the lunar new year and I know that everyone is still in the Chinese New Year mood - eating your favourite cookies and delicacies. Nevertheless, I would like to entertain you with my little writeup about the launch of Jimmy Choo's 2nd fragrance named FLASH.

FLASH is a solar floral, based around a bouquet of white flowers. Encased in a luxurious, shimmering, crystal faceted bottle, reminiscent of a paparazzi flash bulb, FLASH is for the glamorous, urban woman. The bottle was inspired by a modernist chandelier from the 1970s, and references a palette of crystal, Lucite and metal. 

Natasha Poly was the model for FLASH. The model’s look and spirit embodies the Jimmy Choo woman: international, confident and beautiful. 

FLASH is a white floral with a character that is effervescent, carnal and provocative.  The perfumer, Christine Nagel says, “I created FLASH for the self-confident, urban Jimmy Choo woman: sexy, rebellious and sophisticated.  I imagined the sound of her heels, clicking on the streets of New York, London and Paris.”

The fragrance opens with pink pepper, tangerine and strawberry, for a fresh, sparkling introduction.  As these glittering top notes evaporate, heart notes of strong, exotic white flowers, with a tuberose signature enriched with notes of jasmine and white lily, reveal a heady, sexy character.  A base of white, powdery woods gives a lasting impression that is both seductive and sensual, but never too

My thoughts about FLASH
When I saw the flamboyant bottle, I thought that this fragrance will be very strong. To my surprise, it is not too overpowering at all. I like the base notes that has the woody scent. The base note can linger on the body event after I shower. This woody scent is something that I like a lot.

Key Ingredients
Top Notes:  Pink Pepper, Strawberry
Heart Notes:  Tuberose, Jasmine, White Lily
Base Notes:  Heliotrope, White Woods

At the launch event
We had a chance to try out the fragrance.

FLASH is available from:    MARCH 2013

Eau de Parfum 100ml     RM378  (WM)    RM396  (EM)
Eau de Parfum 60ml       RM288  (WM)    RM302  (EM)
Eau de Parfum 40ml       RM176  (WM)    RM185  (EM)

Marie France Bodyline – Women behind Women, Weight Loss Journey, Slimming and its Effectiveness

Dear Readers,

Recently, I was invited to attend a sharing session with Marie France Bodyline’s CEO Amy Quek Swee Li at Marie France KLCC outlet. The session was held to address the myths and misconceptions surrounding slimming centres and slimming treatments. The session with Amy Quek was interesting and beneficial as shared from her vast experience in the beauty and slimming industry. I was thrilled to learn that Amy Quek has been with Marie France since 1989. In 2012, she was appointed the first female CEO to helm Marie France Bodyline.


Marie France Bodyline CEO - Amy Quek

Marie France Bodyline has more than 20 years of experience in the slimming industry. As the leader in slimming industry in Asia, Marie France Bodyline has a network of centres in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Macau and Brunei. Today, there are 20 Marie France centres in Malaysia. Established in Switzerland, Marie France Bodyline conducts intensive research and development to address the common issues faced by today’s women such as excess fat tissue, cellulite and lack of skin elasticity.

Amy Quek shared that Marie France Bodyline observes the 3 main pillars in their business to ensure favorable result for their clients. The 3 main pillars are:
·        Technology
·        Cheer leader (consultant and therapist)
·        Client’s Compliant (realistic goals)

a) Technology
Amy explained that Marie France Bodyline constantly invests in state-of the-art technology and rigorous research to ensure that clients experience the best slimming solution. All equipments used are approved by FDA and other internationally recognized health authorities. Amy explained that the recent inventions by Marie France are Cellu Check PlusTM and Acoustic Radial Therapy (ART). Cellu Check PlusTM machine is able to analyse the fatty deposits in the body while Acoustic Radial Therapy (ART) is a method of combining high energy radial waves with a breakthrough vacuum technology to metabolise fat cells and reduce cellulite. The ART radial waves can penetrate the skin up to 35mm. Both the technology has been certified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and has garnered much attention from medical professionals around the world. The Acoustic Radial Therapy (ART) is able to help women in battling with cellulite issues caused by hormonal and age related laxity of the connective tissues.
The treatment is suitable to be administered to various parts of the body such as the arms, thighs, abdomen and love handles.

b) Cheer Leader (consultant and therapist)
Amy strongly believes that the consultants and therapists play very important roles in the client’s journey towards achieving the ideal body shape. The nutritionist in Marie France Bodyline will provide useful advice to clients so that they can follow a healthy diet and moderate exercise regime to aid in their weight loss goals. She stressed that the client can always consult the consultant for advice even after the treatment has been completed.

c) Client’s Compliant
Amy shared that in every slimming journey, it is important for the client to discuss realistic goals with the consultant and therapist. It is also important for the client to follow the advice of the consultant on how to eat healthily and do some simple exercises. Clients must also visit the centre according to the agreed schedule so that the slimming goals can be achieved.

I concluded that the quest to achieve a slimmer silhouette is not a one sided responsibility by the slimming centre. The client also plays an important role to ensure that the slimming goals are achieved.

Amy further shared about the recent price transparency that is being practiced by Marie France Bodyline. She assured that clients will be informed about their packages and pricing upfront minus any hidden costs. As a firm believer of consumer rights, Amy stressed that it is important to be transparent in business. This is because clients will be confident and trust Marie France for their slimming packages.

At the end of the session, we had the chance to visit the Marie France outlet In KLCC. Here are some of the pictures:

The comfy setting is very welcoming

Kerastase Cristalliste - Sparkling like Crystal

Dear friends

It's February already! Soon it will be Chinese New Year. 

Recently, Jess invited me to try the Kerastase Cristalliste hair care range at Centro Prive at KLCC. Centro Prive is actually for VIP customers as there is a small cozy private room.

The room was decorated with pink baloons
 I have used Kerastase shampoo many years ago but it was a different range.

 The comfortable setting at Centro Prive

I was attended by K, a friendly guy who is a hair stylist specialising in outdoor shooting. Kerastase Cristallise shampoo (for fine hair) was used on my hair. I like the smell of the shampoo as it was not too strong.

My hair was rinsed and applied with Kerastase Lait Cristal conditioner. Thereafter, K applied the Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide serum on my hair end. The Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide serum is not oily but has a light texture.

Why I like Kerastase Cristalliste shampoo?
1. I notice that my hair does not fall so much compared to using other organic shampoo that I am using
2. It is SLS free, silicone free, paraben free, colorant free
3. It makes my hair feels very light and weightless with its Aloe Vera Illuminator
4. It cleans my oily scalp very well with its oil solubilisation system
