Chinese New Year 2013

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! I did mentioned that i am shifting to my new site. But since it is not ready, especially the design, i’ll update my post here temporary. So, back to the topic. It’s CNY. These days do trigger ppl's mood up a little. Yet, if you're anything like me, though, this pleasure should conveniently fade away sometime around the 4rd or 5th day. My CNY was same as others, began with countless visitations and reunion.
Snaps before hanging out~



With my sister beside. It's such an coincident for us to dress in mustard yellow on the same day~

These are the reason i love CNY~ Mom's homemade cookies and snacks. Also, not to be missed, steamboat for family reunion dinner! It's all about food and eating around and ppl tend to put on their weight after CNY.

This is not even the half~

It’s my family and relatives’ tradition for having vacation at the beach every year. Same hotel, same beach this year on the 5th day of CNY- Bayview Beach Resort at Batu Ferringhi Beach.

The pool was a bit crowded than usual~ I won’t always jump in the pool (dislike the chlorine-treated water that made my hair feel weird). N i used to ask my mom why are we kept coming here, its boring…. “I don’t have to worry about the households. All i have to do is siting on my back, relax n enjoy myself here’, she said…It’s understandable lar…Mom and dad have been busy for non-stop every year. They deserve to have a break~

Brothers who were fooling around in the pool… Laughing out loud

Got myself walking along the beach and managed to get a few shots in the windy weather. I’m sharing some of them here~ I personally love the first shot below, izzit nice?

This year Valentine day falls on the 5th day of CNY. On the same day, I’m finally meeting my friends whom i haven’t see for almost a year- Winnie, ShuYing m RuoQi! Had been spending my Valentine day with them 2 years in a row~


Gotta miss them when some of them head back to Singapore soon. Sad smile

I always feel lucky for being a Chinese as our CNY lasts for 15 days a year. Sounds stupid for this reason, rite? I was looking forward for this year CNY. But ended up, i found myself not very excited about it when it’d really came. Too lazy to move around, i guess….I prefer plonking myself down in front of TV instead…My holidays end tomorrow and will be headed back to the bustling city again…Nitez, world!

 If you're a fan of tomato and mozzarella, this is definitely a must for you. Even me--The one that do not eat tomatoes freshly, am obsessed with this dish~ The tomatoes taste different from usual ones. All i can say, they are so tasty and special!


The second dish of the day-
Carpaccio of Hirame with Wild Rice and Soft Aubergine.

Erm...What should i say about this? The Hirame...yes...I love them; The wild rice...it's kinda "grainy"...i had never try this in my life before...and they are kinda unique for me. Maybe, you can have a try on them.

Spaghetti Tomato Sauce with Sea Bass and Grilled Vegetables.

Pasta! My all time favourite. 

Dessert of that night, Espresso Pannacotta.

Luv it!! Diana and I think that this panna cotta taste even better togerther with the milk cream.
I was surrounded by nice people besides of nice food that night. Meet this pretty girl, Rice Hing. and she was one of the Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 Finalists!

Lastly, a group photo before ending this~(Photo credit: Adverlets)
Although the facilities at Blu Med are limited at that moment, they managed to serve us with a simplified, yet awesome dining. It's such a great night. I was suppose to be felt moody for the whole day (Thanks to all the research stuffs, n i HATE research!!). Luckily, these food had the so-called 'de-stress' effect for me. Perhaps, i should start eating whenever i feel stress next time~hmm....

Review - NIVEA Pure & Natural Range


                                     
My skin is always a problem for me~It is particularly picky and choosy till I'm not dare to try out something new on it sometimes. If it is just simply 'dry skin' problem, it will be easier for me~But at the same time, I'm having a sensitive skin. So, most hydrating face care products in the market seem do not suit my skin. When i first got the goodie bag at the launching of NIVEA Pure & Natural, to be honest, i felt a 50:50 chance for them to work on my skin. Yet, one of the major ingredients, Chamomile has soothing property (that's why i decided to put them on my skin).

I have been trying this new range for about 2 weeks. To my great surprise, it provides intense moisture to my skin and the most important- they do not irritate my skin. 


The NIVEA Pure & Natural range i got from the launching. 

So, let's start with the

NIVEA Pure & Natural Body Lotion


And this is my favorite among all. I seldom put on body lotion as i hate my skin to be felt greasy. But, this body lotion can be absorbed readily by skin. 


The creamy texture of the body lotion. (ehem...pardon for my hairy hand)


My skin will not be greasy and sticky at all after it is absorbed. For sure, i feel that my dry skin become softer the next day~


NIVEA Pure & Natural Face Care


Love this gentle, yet effective facial cleansing wipes. Unlike other make up removers I'm using, this is much more convenient. With just a piece of them, removal of make up and refreshing of your skin can be done all in one step~



Not much make up on that day~So, not much cosmetic remnants left on the wipes~One good thing of this wipes, it can be used on your eyes area as well~Mascara, for me is much more harder to be removed. But, I'm  quite surprised that this wipes remove mascara easily & effectively! Soft wipes done all of the jobs~However, my face become a bit reddish after using this~Just like what i've say, my face is sensitive. Even a little touch will turn it red~


NIVEA Pure & Natural Cleansing Lotion is applied after facial cleansing wipes.  

\

Gently massage with your fingers or cotton wool. Even though the facial cleansing wipes have done their part, this cleansing lotion again, removes make up as well~That means, a more purified skin~LOL! Oh ya, it has natural moisturizer for skin hydration and nourishment. I think this is part of the reasons my face don't look dry after I'm using this.

I saw somebody apply the cleansing toner straight after the cleansing lotion. But, i felt strange for doing this.  Thus, I apply this lotion only after I have washed my face with cleanser.



Finally, it's the turn of the product I'm excited for. Not to deny, for somehow the "Kate's effect" is part of this. Even the celebrity, Hannah Lo is amazed by the effects of this face moisturizer.




I don't feel neither oily nor greasy after applying this as it is absorbed readily. In fact, it does provide intensive moisture as the effects are so obvious. My skin remains moisture, soft and supple even after several hours from applying this. 

NIVEA Pure & Natural Deodorant


Most of us know that with the use of deodorant, after excessive sweating, there will be some creamy, whitish patches appear on your black shirt, particularly the sleeves. Now, we have NIVEA Pure & Natural Deodorant. It contains nature-identical antibacterial actives that won't clog pores for better skin breathability. Not to be forgotten also, it is black shirt friendly. So, I don't have to worry much that my favourite dark colour shirts will be abandoned once the patches appear anymore.

After all, NIVEA Pure & Natural range is suitable for sensitive skin. I'm trying not to be exaggerated, but you will definitely fall in love with its natural, calming scent. A little something for you to know~~the princess & celebrity are the firm believers of this range.


Healthy, clear skin is the best base for any sort of makeup,and the fastest way to bring out your inner princess~Nadia Heng, Miss Malysia 2012
