I planned to stay at home and -
1. Clean my room
2. Blog about my trips to Ipoh

This was what i successfully accomplished -


great day!

yea. spent the whole day sleeping and sleeping..
it's not that i don't have anything to do, just that i chose to stay at home :P
don't worry, i'm not emo.
but i'm just anti social
and i actually love to be alone.
believe it or not :P
i may be like super noisy and all, but deep down inside me..
lonely girl that likes to be alone
(owh yes, i know you'll be like...."crap" lah.. =P)

It's now the last hour and the last day of 2010

GOODBYE dear 2010!!

tripSSSS to 1 Utama

This is gonna sound a lil lifeless..

...i went to 1 Utama 4 DAYS in a row...
YES! 4 days straight!

can you imagine?
it's not so bad if you're staying near that area.
but for people staying in Cheras,
like ME,
to go there 4 days straight is quite...

But these trips were all worth while..
(pssstt.. especially day 3 :P)
find out why! =D

Day 1 (Thursday)
Cousin came down from Ipoh yesterday to participate in a competition to win an
iPod Touch :)
with me.
it was held in 1U for 5 days from Wednesday.
but to enter into the finals,
you have to first qualify for it.
Hence that was what we did :)
we participated in 2 out of 3 of the games, that is,
Milk the Cow
Fruit Ninja :)

Day 2 (Friday)
Today, was suppose to be a stay-at-home day.
but suddenly saw a message asking whether i wanna go to 1U with my ACCA mates.
since i had nothing to do..
i drag my cousin along for the gathering :P
walked whole day
basically, teman-ing Daniel to buy 5 teddies..
we explored the christmas decos
and had dinner at Sushi Zanmai!
YUM!! =D
just LOVE sushi!! weee!!!

Day 3 (Saturday)
'today', because my sec bro took one car to Melaka,
me and my cousin was left with no car.
hence, we had to tag along with my eldest brother to his doctor's appointment @ KL
and waited for him for about 1 hour and 15 mins!
before heading to 1U for the
Milk the Cow finals at 3.30pm
Jin from was the DJ for the event :)
i was so super nervous coz the stage is just so not my thing :P
and i was just praying and hoping that nobody i know will ever see me..

there were like 10 people for the quarter finals
(since there were ties, there were actually 12 people)
there's a podium on the stage with an iPod touch on it
and we had to play using the iPod touch on stage
then out of the 12 people, 5 would be chosen for the Semi Finals
(6 were actually chosen due to draws/ties)
and out of the 5, 2 would be chosen for the Finals
where by both will compete to get either the
1st Prize - iPod Touch + Audio Technica Headphones
or 2nd Prize - iPod Nano
Lucky me got through till the finals =D
Finals was played rather differently, in that, me and my opponent would take turns to play 3 rounds, and the highest total score for that 3 rounds would be the winner!
and yup,
i WON!!
wooohooo =D
sooo happy :P
me. the cow. my opponent :P
i mean, i seriously did not expect myself to win through this game.
like totally did not expect to.
but really thank God =D

Day 4 (Sunday)
i was kinda sick of 1U already :P
felt a little lifeless also. XD
and it was seriously a pain to find a decent parking spot. ==
today was the finals for the Fruit Ninja competition at 3.30pm
just like Milk the Cow they had Quarter finals, Semi finals and then the Finals
for this one, i was the ONLY girl there :P
i felt so kiasu being there coz i've already won yesterday :P
but, couldn't help it, coz i confirmed my attendance even before the competition started yest.
hence, not my fault ya :P
i got out at quarter finals but my cousin was in for Semi Finals but did not make it for the finals...sigh..nevermind, there's always a next :P

and yah.
my 4 days trip to 1U
and i can foresee myself NOT entering that mall within the next 6 months XP

ttfn :)
going to Ipoh later today for dim sum <3

Sun-U Canopy Walk

Something amazing just popped out from my Uni :P

i mean, it's like behind the cafeteria that i never knew it existed until it was done :P

my University (Sunway)
built this 'bridge' --- the Canopy Walk
which link my Uni to...


and and..
the best part is.
it only takes you 5 mins to reach there!

My Haircut @ Hairkunst

i finally went for a haircut after so long.
haha. this is what everyone will say.
"no difference pun."
okay, yes, i admit that.

i promise promise to change the next cut
kay. :P

i like the environment at Hairkunst.
the hairstylist was really nice :)
and this was the result of the haircut.

but. i don't like it this way,
as in, i prefer my hair to be blown straight
and look like how i would look like normally.
i couldn't judge if i really liked my hair.
until after i got home, washed my hair.
and uh,
dun like.
i really don't like the shape :/
no time and no more money to go for second cut as
it's gonna be Onyx's turn.

Onyx spend RM80 every 2 months+ on grooming
I spend RM40 every 5months+ on haircut!

i really do sacrifice a lot for her :P

L'Occitane Ultra Rich Shampoo and Conditioner

I wasn't very conscious about my hair during high school
(because i was forced to 'bun' up my hair in high school)
until i came to college when tying my hair every morning means
having to wake up 15 minutes earlier.
(YES, 15 mins is A LOT :P heh.)
i changed my shampoo from the regular Rejoice to Sunsilk to Dove to Loreal
hoping that one would some how or rather turn out to be as helpful as those misleading ads.

then i gave up on my hair and did rebonding.
rebonding cost a bomb and only lasted for one year!
after 2 haircuts.
my hair became the normal
dry, frizzy, fly away, unruly hair that gets tangled so easily
so i switched to Lakme
(claimed to be good by my hairdresser)
used Lakme for one year
STILL the same =="
messy and gets tangled easily.

then after getting to know about shea butter,
i saw this shampoo at eBay
and it took me one month before i made up my mind to buy it
because it was so expensive and i gave up trusting shampoos
that claimed to be good for dry hair like mine.

Let me introduce you to my Miracle Shampoo :)
and conditioner :P

L'Occitane Ultra Rich Shampoo andConditioner

Selected for its nourishing and restructuring properties, Shea Butter deeply nourishes the capillary fibers and protects hair and scalp against harsh conditions (sun, wind, cold, colorations…) Hair is instantly shiny, soft and smooth.

Enriched in Shea Butter, this conditioning cream nourishes and restructures dry hair from roots to ends. Its rich formula regenerates and repairs dry ends and protects hair against harst elements (sun, wind, cold, over processing). Conditioning agents shield the capillary fibers and detangle hair. Ultra Rich Conditioner leaves hair shiny, soft and smooth.

My Comment
When this pair arrived at my house,
i was thinking to just try it once and finish using my 'old' shampoo
before using this.

after i used this once,
my hair was just as they describe
" is INSTANTLY shinny, soft and smooth"!!!
YES! i'm serious.
no kidding!

i felt the difference when i was blowing my hair
(with the saloon type of hair dryer)
normally with my previous shampoo - Lakme
right after blowing dry my hair,
my hair gets tangled badly and i can feel that my hair is really really dry!
then it becomes frizzy and fly away and what not!
but after i used this pair of shampoo and conditioner - L'Occitane,
my hair was so soft straight and just minimal minor tangle that can be brushed off easily without force!

no more fly away and frizzy hair!
i'm not exaggerating :P

i thought those reviews at the L'occitane website were exaggerating
but after i use,
i realized that it actually IS THAT good =D

so after using this one time,
i just couldn't go back to using my Lakme shampoo and conditioner.
i'm so stucked with this L'occitane Ultra Rich Shampoo and Conditioner
because i seriously LOVE the feeling of my hair after!

Try it and you'll understand what i mean :P
(Christmas is near, good excuse to get one for yourself :))

Shampoo (250ml) - RM76
Conditioner (200ml) - RM70+

Yes, absolutely pricey!
but if you can get this overseas, you should get the shampoo from UK (11 pounds - RM55+) and the conditioner from France (12 Euro - RM50+)
glad to have many friends in UK =D
don't have to pay overpriced pricey stuffs in M'sia :P

"What you pay is what you get"
NOT really.
because my Lakme shampoo compared to my L'Occitane shampoo
is only cheaper by RM30/Litre
and Lakme, even after using for ONE YEAR couldn't give me an effect,
not even CLOSE to the effect this two duo (L'Occitane) gave me in ONE DAY!


SUPER recommended ;)

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream and Pure Shea Butter

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

Enriched with 20% Shea Butter, this super-creamy balm penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturise hands. Honey, almond extracts and coconut oil are blended with shea butter to create this extremely effective care. The rich texture is rapidly absorbed to leave the hands soft and smooth with no oily traces. Apply day and night as needed.

My Comment:
Only started to use this for 4 months
and since, my hand has never had any major peels and does not feel dry.

I'm not a fan of creams because i dislike the fact that it makes my hand oily
and everything i touch turns oily.
but this cream absorbs into my skin pretty fast and did not leave an oily layer.

The cream smells really good.

I've never used a hand cream constantly for more than 2 weeks.
and this is the only hand cream that i've been using regularly for 4 months now
and has proven to work for my dry and eczema-fied hands.

i'm happy =D

Price Range: RM80+ (150ml)


L'Occitane 100% Pure Shea Butter

This 100% natural origin organic certified Shea Butter is extracted from wild kernels of Shea tree fruits. It is issued from Fair Trade with cooperatives of women in Burkina Faso. This irreplaceable beauty balm helps to nourish, protect, soften and regenerate dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin. Enriched with antioxidant vitamin E.

Use of face, lips, body and hair.Melt in palm of hands before applying.

My Comment:
I got this after i found that the shea butter hand cream was useful
and the hand cream only had 20% of the Shea Butter.
Hence, i was pretty curious about how true the benefits of this Shea Butter was as written on the website.
hence i got 2 of this 8ml 100% Pure Shea Butter and experimented on myself.

When i first got it,
i wasn't quite used to the smell of it but got used to it really quickly.
i was quite reluctant to apply oil onto my skin
as i was afraid that it will be extremely oily and all.
but nope,
the Shea butter melted quickly in my palms
and shortly after application,
it absorbs into my skin and doesn't feel oily

i've had rough and tough skins on my hands
(due to the way i hold my pen :P i use quite a lot of force)
which i've been applying constantly on for about 3 weeks.
and it has successfully soften my tough skin!!

I'm also using it on the scar on my knee
this one takes time but it's noticeable that it's slowly fading :)

I've tried it on Mosquito bites i get from studying in the Kitchen at night which is
just next to the Garden.
(owh the mosquitoes :P)
it soothes the itch and stops itching almost immediately
(prevent scars from scratching :))

Also tried this on cuts.
wow. it really speeds up healing.

i'm seriously amazed with this.
and i'm not exaggerating.
Use it and you'll know :)
i'm a living experiment :P heh.

and i NEVER promote things that i don't trust or believe in.
especially cosmetics!
i never believe in cosmetics until i met L'Occitane :P

Price Range: 8ml - RM29
150ml - RM140+

*miracle shampoo post coming up next :P
but i think you should be able to guess what brand is it already XD

Shea Butter

just got to know about L'Occitane June this year
when Ms. Joyce, my lecturer for F6 and F9 brought me and yan ying
out for lunch to thank us for helping her out
and also gifted us each a Shea Butter Hand Cream from L'Occitane.
(Thank you Ms Joyce :))

err, actually i got to try this hand cream once from Hannah during SAM in Taylors.
i checked it out once then, but did not get it coz it was pricey and i had no income then.
and i NEVER believe in hand creams.
coz nothing ever helped my Eczema.
If you've known me since High school, you'd have known about my horrible Eczema
my hand peels like crazy..
and is super super dry..
my mom always say
"Ling, if someone were to compare my hands and my mom's they would surely say i worked more,
coz my hands were really dry :P"
i also hated those thumbprint machines!
i had to try like 30 times before it'll ever detect my thumbprint or they'll just ask me to return when my skin gets better =="

And and...those who know me knows that i do not use cosmetics
and hence take no notice/interest in cosmetic shops like body shop, L'Occitane..etc.
not until i tried the Shea Butter Hand Cream.

it was so effective i had to do some research on the ingredient that is in that hand cream.

WHAT is Shea Butter?
Shea Butter is natural fats extracted from the nuts (Shea Nuts) of the African Tree (Shea Tree).
100% all natural shea butter is an all-vitamin A cream and has shown to be a superb moisturizer with exceptional healing properties for the skin.

BENEFITS of Shea Butter?
1. Dry skin
2. Skin Rash
3. Soothes Itching Skin
4. Sun Burn
5. Small skin wound
6. Skin cracks
7. Tough or rough skin
8. Stretch marks
9. Scars
10. Eczema (of course! :P)
11. Split ends or Dry hair

can be used on your face, hand, lips, hair, ANYWHERE :P
and the list can go on and on.....
the healing properties of shea butter is pretty amazing!
i'm saying this because i've tried it and it actually works!

here is just a super short and brief info on shea butter.
if you are really interested,
you should ask Mr Google :)
and i know he'll be glad to tell you more about shea butter :P

Following this blog post will be more post on L'Occitane's Shea Butter range of products that i've experimented on. Stay tuned :)
