Have you ever thought about what makes a great cup of coffee? Is it the type of beans? The country it’s from? Or is it how your barista would make it? Like most of us, i know a good cup of coffee when i get one, but i just can’t seem to point out what makes it great- until recently.
Last week, Nespresso introduced its Master Origin range. It’s an improvement of their Pure Origin range- a collection of selective, premium and high quality coffee. But what could be better than carefully selected, premium, high quality coffee right? Well, let me tell you- it’s the unique harvesting and coffee processing practices that each country has.
The Master Origin range comes from five different origins, each with its own unique processing method: Ethiopia, Indonesia, India, Colombia & Nicaragua.
Here is what makes each of these coffee special in their own way:
Who isn’t familar with the well known Japanese brand AEON? Available in numerous places across the country, it is one of the go-to places for almost everything! From clothes, to hardware, baby items, household products and so much more, it’s no wonder why it has become the favourites to many of us here in Malaysia.
As i live in Puchong, AEON Bandar Sunway was one of the most visited place for me during the weekends and it still is now. I recently visited them and was glad to know that they’ve undergone a whole lot of renovations for a new and improved shopping experience!
Of course two of the major floors that I usually visit is the Kids and the Ladies section.The layout has been enhanced alot, and it a has a much cleaner, brighter and organized feel to it.
Here are some of the changes that caught my eye at AEON Bandar Sunway:
Why take the word of a Kuchingite living in KL? I don’t actually live in Kuching, and I wasn’t exactly born there. BUT i was brought up in Kuching and my family still lives there. I fly from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching every few months just to make sure i get my Sarawakian food fix.
And every time i go back to Kuching, there are always these few number of places that I MUST visit every single time i’m back. I would love to recommend other sights and places to go in Kuching, but honestly the best thing to do in Kuching is eat! So here it is! Here are some of the usual places that i go to whenever i’m back.
TOP SPOT FOOD COURT
This ain’t no ordinary food court. Top Spot is specifically a seafood food court that is almost always full! Not only is the seafood there fresh, prices are really cheap too! Imagine feeding a family of 8 under RM200- and i mean with crabs, prawns fish and all that!
Tip: Best time to go there would be at 6pm for an early dinner. And try their tebu lemon- it’s the BOMB!
Weekends are usually the time when I get to spend with my little boy. He’s usually stuck at home all week, and the weekends are when I love to bring him out to play and explore the world.
Since a little guy like him learns best through play, I decided to take him to a new place I recently heard about called Kiddomo Universe. The Future Playland as they call it is unique and is the first of its kind in Malaysia.It is an innovative educational playland where your child can excite all their senses and exercise their creative imagination in a brand new way! Their unique approach combines classical play with the latest technology- something that kids nowadays can’t run away from. Continue Reading →
Generally, any multi-storey residential building is called an “apartment”. However, more and more terms are being thrown about to describe what is traditionally called an apartment: condos, serviced apartment, SOHO, SOFO, SOVO and etc. This result is that terminology between apartment, condominium and serviced apartment has been distorted over the years.
A condominium is an apartment that has facilities such as a swimming pool, gymnasium, multi-purpose hall, etc. While an apartment or a condominium that is built on commercial land is differentiated with the term serviced apartment.
So, what are the differences between a condominium and a serviced apartment? Read on to find out.
What is one of your must have moments in the morning before starting your day? For me, it’s a good cup of coffee and spending time with my boy before heading off to work. Lily before coffee and after coffee are like two different people. Believe me, you probably wouldn’t want to be friends with ‘no-coffee’ Lily.
The best kind of coffee are the ones that are freshly brewed. Unlike instant coffees, freshly brewed ones has that extra aromatic smell that is sure to #AwakenYourSenses . But i’m always super busy and at times can’t afford to take a detour to get my morning fix from my usual cafe. Continue Reading →
Let’s be honest, it’s not like I don’t buy make-up removal wipes or creams or oils, it’s just that you tend to run out and you haven’t had time to restock- right mummies? So i’ve been going through this a few times because i hardly have time for myself these days and i thought, why not share my discovery.
So far I’ve tried 4 different wipes:
Fiffy Baby Wipes
Pureen Baby Wipes
Offspring Baby Wipes
Aeon Topvalu Baby Wipes
I’ve tried all these wipes to remove my daily make-up and not all works great. So here’s a little review for each of the wipes and their ranking:
#4 Offspring Baby Wipes
For make-up, offspring falls at #4. It’s a little bit harder to remove make-up. I’m not sure if it’s because they are an all natural product or because of the ingredients they use, but yea, i had to use 2 big sheets and even that left me with black lines under my eyes after washing my face. One thing for sure, they are awesome to take on the go and is my favourite when it comes to clean up time for my boy due to its thick and wide sheet and towel like material.
#3 Pureen Baby Wipes
Pureen Baby Wipes is another great option for messy times and diaper changing. The material is soft and smell great too. It’s not as thick and wide as Offspring, but does the job well too. For my make-up, not that great. It soft for the face and slides quite nicely but would need 2-3 sheets to really get all my make-up off. i always find that i would need to use the wipes again after i’ve washed my face to really get my make up off especially around the eye area.
#2 Aeon Topvalu Baby Wipes
Make-up wise, it does a pretty good job, plus it’s cheap! So i don’t mind using a few sheets to wipe off my make-up. i use this alot at home especially to clean up after my boy’s meal times and messy times. i also use this to clean my kitchen and dining table sometimes.
#1 Fiffy Baby Wipes
I actually got these Fiffy Baby Wipes as a free sample in a Goodie bag. Ever since i tried it to take my make-up off , it’s been my go-to and #1 wipes for removing make-up when i don’t have my ‘proper’ wipes. I find that most times i only need to use one sheet and it instanly gets the job done. It slides really nicely on my face too and doesn’t dry off my face.
I’ve also tried lotion on cotton wool as well, but that doesn’t really do a good job. Do you guys have any other suggestions on how to remove make-up when you don’t have a make-up remover? Leave your comment below!
Ever since I became a mum, Baby Fairs is a must in order to get the best deals and restock on baby essentials. But the one thing that I hate going through, is the massive crowd and the trouble of looking for parking!
