Gossip #1 [Soup or Salad] ~ It is well known that Korean women have flawless skin and if we do a little read up on how to achieve that result, it requires hard work 😛 After all, there is a Chinese saying which goes, 这个世界上没有丑的女人，只有懒的女人 [there are no ugly women, only lazy ones] ~ secret reveals that Korean women practise a 10-step skincare method!

Hi Peeps, how have you been? The first half of the month was hectic for me as I had to travel to and fro the hospital to take care of my mom; now that she is discharged, I am happy that I am back to share with you my experiences in various kind of things 🙂
If you do follow me on Facebook or Instagram, then perhaps you could remember that I shared about playing Captain Ball with a group of friends few weeks ago . I enjoyed the game, so today I want to share with you about the game!
I am a runner, so most of the time runners are quite “independent”; we may run in a group but at the end of the day, it is still an individual race. When I was in school, I got chosen to try out netball because of my height (I am not very tall, but just tall enough to join the team); and I guess I was not very talented so in the end, I was not part of the team.
When I got to know that we were going to play Captain Ball, I had mixed feelings because I think I am not very good in this kind of game. There will be a lot of people in that “box”, there are rules to follow, we need teamwork, our movement is restricted in that “box”, we need to move both our arms and legs et cetera; in short, it is much more “complicated” than running :p
BUT…surprisingly, I enjoyed the game! Let me share the video of our game here :
Haha, we did not really follow the rules as most of us were new to the game; it was only after the game that we did some research about Captain Ball 😀
Here are some of the Basic Rules:
Each team will comprise seven (7 ) players with minimum of two (2) female players
Games are played with five (5) players a side (including one (1) Captain/Catcher) and there must be at least one (1) female player in the team at any point during the game
The playing area is 18m (L) by 9m (B), which is equivalent to the size of a volleyball court
Only those involved in the match are allowed in the courts
A goal/point is scored when the Captain/Catcher takes possession of the ball with both hands while remaining on the stand for at least three (3) seconds
Scoring: Girls – 2 points, Guys – 1 point
No direct passing of balls to the Captain/Catcher is allowed – the ball must be released from the player’s hands to the Captain/Catcher
Only one (1) defending player is allowed in the area and no defending behind the back line
Defenders are not allowed to touch or push the Captains/Catchers from the opposing team
Defender cannot tap the ball away when the Captain/Catcher has two (2) hands on the ball

The opposing team will serve the ball if it goes out by the sidelines
The Defender will serve the ball if it goes out by the back line
No hitting the ball away when opponent has two (2) hands on the ball

Eight (8) years in the industry, Healthy Fruit and Beverages (HFB) ~ 心语水果 opens daily from 10:00 to 19:30 on weekdays (except Mondays) and from 10:00 to 18:00 during public holidays and weekends. This hidden gem is located at Taman Equine, Seri Kembangan.
The rectangular shop is packed with healthy and fresh fruits; and on the walls are notes about fruits combinations and its benefits and functions. Customers can either buy fruits or order fresh fruit juices at the counter at reasonable price.
The owner, Ms Chaw is a very friendly lady; despite her busyness, she gives her best to all customers and I believe that this is the reason why the shop has a lot of customers walking in and out.
I had the opportunity to visit the shop with fellow blogger, Kathy. It was a simple and casual engagement with Ms Chaw, and we had an enjoyable time. We tried few types of juices and the Italian Panini with Tuna filling.
Have you heard of Bulb Juice? It is basically a bottle in the shape of a light bulb; just add RM2.00 and you can have your juice in this fancy bottle – I bet kids would love it 😀
You know what? There is no wastage at all because those tiny bits and pieces of the cut fruits are turned into Garbage Enzyme!
We added the Enzyme into the fruit juice (additional RM3.00) and oh my, it tastes so yummy and refreshing!
Now let’s have a look at the variety of fruits bring sold here; whether it is imported or local fruits, you have it all here. I would say this is a one-stop fruit station 🙂
Chinese New Year is over, but if you are looking for fruits to celebrate the occasion, HFB is the place to go to 🙂
Here is a photo of me enjoying the refreshing “Blood Circulation” 🙂 [messy hair, but who cares? :D]
Oops, not enough cash? Left your wallet behind? Fret not! kiplePay is here to save your day!
“kiplePay is a simple and effective mobile e-wallet application, offering a dynamic platform for both consumers and merchants, that is relevant and ultimately the kind of conveniences you never know you needed!”
Just download the mobile app and ta-daa, payment made easy 🙂
Besides fruits, the shop sells other things too! Do you love honey? They have organic honey, soy sauce, ginger from Bentong, chilly sauce, coconut oil and ice sticks/bags! The ice sticks/bags can be eaten in its form; alternatively, just defrost it and you can drink it as fruit juice 🙂
Going solo but not comfortable to stay alone in the hotel room? Planning for a staycation but have no idea where to head to? Fret not, there is a place for you to go 🙂 In the heart of Kuala Lumpur, we have this Capsule Hotel (also known as Pod Hotel) calls The Bed KLCC (Hotel)!
“A capsule hotel (カプセルホテル kapuseru hoteru), is a type of hotel developed in Japan that features a large number of extremely small “rooms” (capsules) intended to provide cheap, basic overnight accommodation for guests who do not require or who cannot afford the services offered by more conventional hotels.”
I won a voucher to stay a night at the Hotel a couple of weeks ago, offered by fellow blogger, Betty Liew and upon reading her entry on The Bed KLCC, I commented:
“I want to win this staycation to experience something different in the city as I’ve not done something like this before :)”
Yes, I have never done something like this and to be honest, the idea of a Capsule Hotel does not seem to appeal to me because I love privacy; but I decided to leave my comfort zone and explore something new 🙂
I was greeted by the friendly receptionists when I entered the Hotel. I paid RM30.00 to enjoy the season parking as I could park all day with unlimited entry. Upon checking in, I was given an access card, a towel and a dental kit. Oh yes, a RM50.00 refundable deposit would be collected (to be refunded upon check out).
I like the security features in the Hotel as we need the access card to enter the lift and the respective rooms. As a solo female “traveler”, I must say that this is great because I feel safe and secured. Besides, CCTV is available at almost every corner of the Hotel (minus the bathroom of course) 🙂
We need to wear the in-house slipper provided and there was a shoe locker to keep our shoes safe and sound.
I chose the Single POD Side-Entry – Female and as I entered the designated room, I found my pod and oh my, I was quite impressed because the pod was quite spacious! Let’s have a look 🙂
Each POD comes equipped with:
Personal reading light
Table for laptop use or writing
Luxurious cotton sheets
Fluffy duvet & pillows
Hangers and clothes rack
Personal power socket
Haha, I fell in love with the place already! I was saying that I love privacy right; and hey, I had nothing to worry about because although the room was shared by many, it was actually quite private as we could pull down the privacy blind for more privacy :).
The lighting was at the right brightness and it would not interfere the person nearby you. As I was just staying for a night, I did not carry too many things but I saw a spacious locker underneath the beds. However, I could not figure out how to lock the locker, perhaps the Hotel should provide a padlock as well.
Let’s explore the bathroom – it was clean (I saw the cleaner in the evening and in the morning). The bathroom was outside the room and it was shared amongst the travelers on that respective floor but do not worry about taking turns because there would be sufficient showers, basins and toilets to attend to your needs 🙂
Body shampoo, shampoo and hand wash were provided – yay! There were hair dryers, iron and ironing board provided, and I really like it. The Management must have thought it through when they came up with this idea 🙂
Did I sleep well? Yes, I did; but the room was a little warm during the wee hours. The duvet and pillows were comfortable though. As there was no one sleeping above me that night, I would not know if it would be noisy when the person above me moved during her sleep.
The lounge! I visited the lounge during breakfast – I had nasi lemak, toast with butter and a cup of coffee. The breakfast selection was limited but I appreciate that breakfast was provided albeit it was self-service and we had to wash the dishes as well.
The lounge seemed to be quite comfortable and nice to chill. There was a movie playing during breakfast. I did not have the time to relax at the lounge but I think it would be a place that I liked to be during my free time (if I am coming here again) 🙂
Checking out was easy. I had to drive out my car and stopped at the entrance to return the parking access card and get back my RM50.00 deposit.
Conclusion ~ I think if I want to have a staycation again, I would not mind coming back. In terms of price, it is pretty affordable, and I love the environment.
Cleanliness – 8.5/10
Location – 8.0/10
Service – 7.0/10
I was not in the mood to smile because I had two (2) pimples popping happily on my face (right side of forehead and right below my lips) 😦 So I was so happy that one of the items was the Acne Soothing Cleansing Cream (ASCC).
As the name speaks for itself, this facial cleanser targets acne skin type. It absorbs stubborn impurities, deep cleanses the pores, washes away impurities and daily grime. It also sweeps away dead skin cells and shrinks the appearance of pore size. Wah, sounds good right? The end result would be a brighter and less oily skin, and more importantly, acne will say bye bye 😀
Let’s have a look at the texture of ASCC ~ looks creamy. I add water to lather and it does not look too foamy. When I massage it onto my wet skin, I could feel the cleanser is doing a good job to do its “job”. However, my skin feels a little tight after I wipe dry, but it gets less tight after few wash.
Oh yes, I have forgotten to mention that the ASCC is Paraben Free, MI Free and MCI Free (Methylisothiazolinone Free) 😀
Now, let’s move on to Swissvita’s Micrite 3D All Use Eye Cream (SM3AUEC). As we age, fine lines and wrinkles will appear around our eyes. Do you ever feel shy to laugh because you are worried about the crow’s feet (laugh lines)? SM3AUEC is here to rescue! It helps to slow down the skin aging around our eyes, smoothen fine lines, weakens melanin and tighten up the skin.
The gel-like water based texture is not greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin; besides, it is also Paraben Free, Alcohol Free and Fragrance Free.
I started using these two (2) products when I received it, and today, after more than a week, my pimples said goodbye *whee*! Do I look younger? 😀
If you are interested to know more about their products, you may check them out on their Facebook (as above) and Instagram. There is also a special promotion for online purchase at Swissvita’s official partner’s website at https://www.allyoung.my/ by applying a RM10.00 discount code: SWA10 (no minimum purchase required; valid until 28 February 2018).
It is getting late, I better go get some beauty sleep *yawn*. Good night peeps 🙂
Virtual Run is getting more popular these days as it is convenient and flexible – participants are able to run at anytime, anywhere, and at their own pace; so long as the distance challenged (ranging from 5km and above) is completed within the timeline given, participants are able to receive the entitlements – usually a finisher medal and/or finisher tee.
The aim, I believe, is to encourage and motivate more people to enjoy running (some may be discouraged to join an actual running event, so this is a good start). As for myself, joining Virtual Runs is one of the ways for me to keep running, besides collecting medals and finisher tees.
Few months ago, I participated in a Virtual Run – the 100km in 100 days Challenge. Usually the organizers allow participants to screenshot our results from any running apps but for this, we were required to use their mobile app – Biib+.
When you click further, our Profile will be shown, with information such as our Height, Weight and Gender; then there is also Run History, Total Run Duration, Total Run Distance and Total Calories Burnt.
The app is okay and pretty accurate (I on Strava at the same time) but what I do not like about the app is perhaps the inconsistency on the record of the distance. For instance, I have completed 5.00 km but when the app updates the record, there could be a 0.01 difference; which to me is quite annoying as I try to make it a round figure all the time ~ Let’s say I ran 5.00km but it was recorded as 4.99km and the next round I tried to run the extra 0.01km so that I could make it round figure again but when the record was updated, the total distance was not a round figure. This happened a few times during the last challenge; hope this has improved 🙂
As for the finisher items, I was quite disappointed with the quality. For the price we were paying [RM59.00 (early bird)] and considering that this was not an actual running event, I was expecting better quality medal and tee. To be fair, perhaps the funds went to the improvement of the mobile app.
All right, finally I have done this review; apologies for the delay. I know that by this time, this is kinda outdated. Since this was my promise, better be late than never *shy smile* 🙂
