Anlene Move Young Campaign @ Queensbay Mall

mood: random
song: ai dee (hatsune miku)



In conjuction with the introduction of the new Anlene with MoveMax, dairy giant Fonterra Brands Malaysia, today launches an experiential showcase at Queensbay Mall to get Malaysians to move as young as they feel inside.

Move As Young As You Feel Inside
31st August - 4th September 2016
Queensbay Mall Penang


The new Anlene with MoveMax formulation includes Calcium, Collagen and Protein as well as other nutrient such as magnesium, zinc and Vitamins B,C,D & E for the well-being of bones, joints and muscles. 




So, we started by trying out the mobility test at the MoveCheck booth where they uses ultrasonometers to check for the osteoporotic fracture risk assessment. Firstly, the staff will spray some antiseptic alcohol on your feet before proceeding the test to ensure it is hygienic. 



Next, we move on to the movement test whereby I will be tested on various different movement. So, this time we would need to stretch our right arm to see if we could reach out to our left arm. Luckily, I was able to complete that by having my both hands crossing about 5cm. 
Pretty flexible aint I?


Once we are done with the test, we would have to proceed to the consultation counter whereby the staff on duty will explain to us on our results of the test. So, overall mine was quite good where I was pretty surprise. The staff did explains to me that in order for me to maintain, it is best that I should have at least 2 glasses of milk daily to ensure that my body did have enough calcium intake. 


Now, in order to win some FREE gift, there are more 3 missions to be accomplished on top of getting our MoveCheck results. The Arcade Dance, Tyre Swing and Trampoline.

Review: The Body Shop Seaweed - Oil Balancing Clay Mask

mood: tired
song: shiwa




Since I LOVES to DIY stuff. So, when it comes to facial skincare, my routine usually consist of homemade products using food ingredients which are great for skin. In fact, the results are consistently good compared to some masks I purchased outside.

Till now the only shortcoming is the inability to combat my prone-to-be oily "T-ZONE". So, I came across this Mask from Body Shop during my last visit and decided to give it a shot.

The Body Shop Seaweed Oil-Balancing Clay Mask


This mask contains mineral rich seaweed which is suitable for combination/oily skin with the aims to clarify, control and mattifies oily/combination skin. Sounds like a great deal right?


Besides, this clay itself is 100% natural and will help to revitalize your skin by controlling excess oil meanwhile drawing out impurities.

How to use: So, I applied a generous amount of the clay mask and left to set for 15 minutes.

The Scent: Clay-ish scent. Some said it smells like detergent. But I love it! ;)

The Texture: It has a thick consistency, dilute it with a few drops of water to allow it to spread easily.

Repurchasing: I absolutely love this mask and would definitely repurchase! 

I use this once a week. However if you have slightly more sensitive skin, I would recommend you to use this every 2 weeks once just to deep cleanse because this product might "over" dries up your skin as it is designed for combination/oily skin.

PROS
• works best for oily skin as it helps to "suck up" the oil on the T-ZONE area
• Re-freshens skin
• Helps tighten pores
• 100ml is ALOT! so it will last for quite some time
• loves the clay scent

CONS
• will dry out skin for dry skin people
• does not MOISTURIZE skin

Overview
This face masks have been wonderful for my skin, combating my oily T-ZONE.
The quality and prices are pretty reasonable as it is only RM79 for a 100ml tub.
A little goes a long way. With the usage of at least once a week, it takes me 1 year and 2 months for me to finish up a tub. So this is definitely a great deal!

Review: Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser

mood: random
song: circle of life



Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser comes in a standard squeeze tube. The texture of this more to a whipped formula as it oppose to being a foaming cleanser. It works to dissolves dirt an impurities  while boosting cell turnover.

 The texture of the cleanser.
After my first try, my skin was left with a clean, soft and smooth surface. Not to forget with their rose scent which made me felt super refreshed and calm every time using it.

How to use: Take an appropriate amount and gently spread it over your face. 


The Scent: It has a relaxing rose fragrance that will make you feel as if you are in an aromatherapy spa. 

The Texture: It is a whipped type product that can easily be spread on skin. 

This is one of the few cleansers I have that does not cleanse my face harshly. It is highly recommended to those who are looking for a good cleanser for their delicate dry skin like mine.

Repurchasing: Maybe. Because it is kind of costly for a cleanser to me.

Glow Hotel Penang

mood: random
song: the day we find love (911)


Glow Hotel is located at the heart of Georgetown. An interior's filled with bright colors and pop-arts to summarize the design of this hotel.

The lobby was filled with vibrant color as I stepped in.

This is a Superior Double Room, with 21-sqm, 32" LED TV and a mini bar with complimentary water, electronic safe box, gym, Airport/ Port Transfer Service (with charge), laundry & dry cleaning service (with charge) as well as swimming pool and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet access in every room.

A welcome gift ;)

As you can see, everything in this hotel is filled with vibrant colored items ;)



 Complimentary Breakfast for Hotel Guests
The buffet breakfast was a wide spread of mixed Asian and Western cuisine.

The salad bar

Cereal bar

Overall, I find the GLOW Hotel is pretty reasonable with it's convenient location in the middle of Georgetown. The only downside is that it has limited parking spaces in the hotel and also around that area. I would have to drive around that area for five times to get myself a parking space.

Do check out their room rates HERE as they have 4 types of room:
