Swimming Fun!

The very first time I was introduced to the swimming pool was when I was as young as 7 months old. I was not a very big fan of water then, so when mama brought me in with her into the freezing cold water, I hated it!

I swore I would never go into the pool ever again and that the closest I would get to a pool is just by dipping my feet in them.

However, everything started to change when I followed mama and papa to Sunway Resort Hotel where they had this big, big pool for swimming. At first I was reluctant to go in. But seeing how happy my cousins and papa were, swimming away in the huge pool, I just couldn't say no and jumped in as well!

I really had a great time! I never knew swimming in the pool could be so fun! In fact, I had no idea why I hated it in the first place!

Now that I've conquered my fear, I kept pestering papa for more swimming sessions! Lucky for me, my auntie has a pool at her house in Bukit Jelutong so we don't have to go to the Public Swimming Pool for a swim.

Seeing how much I enjoy my water session, mama thought it would be a good idea for us to have our own inflatable mini pool whenever I feel like swimming.

By now, I am more confident in the water that I would start splashing the water...,

Play balls in the water...,

Even toss and turn in the water!

So one day if you feel like going for a swim and need a buddy to go with, you know where to find me!

Mary Kay Skin Care

Many have asked me what products have I actually used for smooth, flawless skin like mine. My answer to them is simple ; nothing.

I am dead serious, I never use anything -- not Clean & Clear, not Olay, not Simple, not SK II, not even Hazeline Snow! I guess I am one of those who are blessed with natural, low-maintenance skin so the only thing I do use to clean my face is purely clean water.

First, let me remind you that my skin isn't exactly "flawless". If you look closely, you could see a little calar here and there as well. Sometimes, it can get a little dry too, and it shows during that particular time of the month. So when I heard about Mary Kay and how it could help revitalize my skin, I thought, hmm, let's give it a try! I made an appointment with one of the beauty consultants and the next thing I knew, I was already at their office at Jaya33 last Sunday morning.

The lady who introduced herself as Iman was very pleasant and helpful. She let me try all the many different products there.

All the while she was talking, I couldn't help but to notice what beautiful skin she has! She isn't only fair, she also has that pinkish, healthy rosy cheeks to compliment her complexion!

She told me it isn't difficult to get that healthy, beautiful skin. Everyone can have it with these 4 simple steps which I will gladly share with all of you, because it works wondrous on me!

1) Cleanse with Mary Kay Cleanser

As mentioned earlier, I never paid much attention to all this cleanser-whatsoever-thing before but now that I know how important it is to actually cleanse and care for my skin now that I wear makeup quite a lot, I realize how fresh my skin felt after cleaning my skin with this cleanser.

2) Mask with Mary Kay Mask

I used to wonder, why laaa some people actually go through all the trouble of applying mask & cucumber on their face and looking like a first-class hantu? My question was immediately answered after trying them out myself.

In case you're wondering, I purposely applied them on half the side of my face so I can feel the difference. Once I washed them off, I can feel the masked side of my face felt ten times smoother and, get this, fairer! Tak payah pakai Fair & Lovely bagai okeh. With this mask, you can see the effect in just 5 minutes!

It seems that the use of a mask is to open the pores, remove dead skin cells and acts like a mini scrub. I guess my skin has a lot of dead skin cells that I never cared to care kot, tu yang lepastu teros jadik smooth gila tu!

3) Freshen with Mary Kay Freshener

Okay, let me tell you that this one, is memang the bomb! My skin immediately felt fresh and uplifted after applying this to my face! It seems that it helps to close the pores back again after the masking process previously, so it leaves your skin nice and cooling.

4) Moisturize with Mary Kay Moisturizer

And last, but not least, the moisturizer. Seriously, I have to thank this moisturizer for its amazing effect on me. I am not sure if it's the effect of cleansing, masking and freshening altogether, but after applying this moisturizer to my skin, my face felt soft and moist. It doesn't feel too sticky nor too dry. It's basically just what I need for my dry skin!

And there you have it! 4 simple basic steps to fresh, glowing skin! You can leave it just like that or you can enhance it just a little more like what I did during my session then for a longer lasting effect.

1) Mary Kay Soothing Eye Gel

Tengok container pon dah nampak soothing kan? Hehe. But it's nothing like having them around your eyes! They're honestly very cooling and very soothing, just like the name suggests. You know those cooling eye masks that you put on your eyes whenever your eyes feel tired? This one feels exactly like that, only better!

To apply it is easy. Just put a little of the gel on your ring finger, and gently make small circles around your eyes, like the picture above. Sumpah mata rasa bertenaga and bersinar lepastu! Ok tipu, tak bersinar. Bertenaga je :P

2) Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation

This one awfully reminds me a lot of Topshop's Skin Tint that I am longing to buy! Even the tube size is about the same size of Topshop's Skin Tint! :D

Now, I am not sure about Topshop's Skin Tint that I have yet to try, but I definitely love how this one blends in with my skin. It's nothing like the Maybelline's foundation that usually leaves my skin dry and too-white. This one definitely gives a natural color to my skin! In case you're wondering, I used Ivory 200.

3) Mary Kay Mineral Powder

Interesting fact about this powder is that, the brush is made of goat's hair so they wash easily whenever you want to clean them! I also love how the brush makes an even color to my face and the fact that the powder is loose powder, so takde la nampak bertapuk-tapuk ke apa kan.

4) Mary Kay Lip Mask & Lip Balm

Oh this baby is also amazing. This Lip Mask is used to remove any dry/dark skin and restore the structure of your lips. I tried, and I loved the effect, just like this lady did! My lips are chapped no more! :D For those with dry lips, I highly encourage you to get this one!

I am telling you, Mary Kay works wondrous on me I am even thinking of getting some of their products as soon as I get my pay! I love any products that makes me look fresh and good naturally without trying too hard, and Mary Kay products definitely deliver just that!

For those of you who would like to inquire more on any of these products, feel free to contact Iman the beauty consultant at or 019-2661775. Iman is an experienced Mary Kay beauty consultant with years of experience, and needless to say, I was very much impressed with her knowledge in skincare and of course, complexion!

As always, happy melawa-lawa, ladies! ;)

Once A Nuffnanger, Now A Nuffie!

I know, I know, I have been disappearing for quite some time now, I know. But the good news is, I am back! Not that anybody cares anyway, but whatever. :P

When I was working with Loveclients, I had the luxury of going to work at 10am, and being chauffeured every bloody day since Aien and I were working in the same office. But since that's no longer the case anymore, after doing a little calculation on the ridiculous parking fee (RM10/day), toll and petrol cost, I have decided to take the train.

Yes, that is what I have to go through everyday. God knows how much I hate the smelly crowd and the stinky trains! Unlike last time, now everyday is an early start for me as I have to leave the house latest by 7.30am and even then I will only reach the office at 9 - 9.30am. Yes, the story of my life! The only good thing about this is the fact that I have lost 4KGS out of walking and err, dieting, so I have trains to thank for, in a way. :P

One of the best things about being a Nuffie is that, I get to meet bloggers everyday! They would either drop by our office to collect their merchandise, or they would simply meet us at events like we held recently ; Burlesque Prrmiere Screening and the TuneTalk briefing.

with Lily (, Eric (, Daydeck ( and Hamzah (

If I don't get to see them on events, as mentioned earlier, I will still get to meet them when they drop by our office to collect their merchandises. And when they do, they would usually leave their trail behind on the Nuffnang Footprints Wall. Have you left your trail there yet?

Many of our bloggers have made a tour around Nuffnang office. However for those of you who have not, allow me to be your tour guide from this entry! ;)

Like all companies I've worked in so far, Nuffnang too practices an open-concept office. Here's a peek of our office when you step into our orange hut!

The very first time I stepped into Nuffnang office, I thought it was pretty cool. Slightly cluttered, but definitely cool. The office is cozy as you can see, but among all, this is my favorite spot! The chill spot where the Nuffies chill and lepak after a hard day at work! Cool kan!

Another cool thing about Nuffnang that I love is the fact that we are free to browse Facebook, Twitter and IM anyone during office hours as long as we get our work done! Now that's what being an adult is all about -- being in control of our own actions!

Heck, we even have two TVs in the office for everyone to watch while working! Mind you, kitorang tak tengok CNN or BBC channel ok, we watch Starworld, E! or HBO! :D

That's Junior Masterchef on TV! :D Oh and we also have our own little pantry, ...

... that it is always filled with "healthy" junks! Hehe.

And of course, the espresso machine. If I were so jakun when I first saw the espresso machine in Loveclients, now not anymore! Hehe. However, since I am still not a big fan of coffee besides the one and only Java Chip from Starbucks, I hardly ever use it.

Oh and who could ever forget, the aquarium meeting room! This is the very room that I went in for my interview and yes, the very room for who's about to get interviewed in the future too!

So that's all there is to it to Nuffnang office! Sighs. It's funny how life works sometimes, no? Last month I was just a regular Nuffnanger, blogging and sharing my thoughts away with my fellow blogger friends during my free time. Now I am a Nuffie in Nuffnang, and taking blogging/advertising industry very seriously! :)

Whatever it is, I am contented with what I am doing now, and I pray that I can go far in my career this time. For those of you who have yet to meet me, trust me, we will! As long as you're a blogger, and an active one at that, we will meet each other -- sooner or later. And when you do, don't be shy to say hi! :)
