Another Monthly Surprise Bag of Love

Yayy, today talked about some girly stuff! 

I am super excited about this! Just received yesterday but can't wait to share with you guys d! 

Bag of Love! Coincidently saw this product from other's blog and I found it quite interesting cz it is no longer box instead it comes in a bag! There are too many existing beauty box monthly subscriptions so there are nothing special about it. 

Usually I will review what products is featuring for the past few months before I proceed with the payment. And I found out this is quite attracting so I did not hesitate much! Lol..

The team of Bag of Love is very efficient! I did not expect my parcel would be received after 5 days of payment. It comes in different design of bag every month so there is another thing to anticipate for! Anyway the idea is awesome at least we can use it as travel pouch which is way better than WonderBox which I received earlier. :-( I got nothing to do with the empty boxes! Think gonna leave it till the next spring cleaning..XD

Crabtree and Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy, Full-Size, RM30
Dry hands including cuticles and nails will delight in this superior moisturising and conditioning blend of macadamia nut oil, shea butter, antioxidant rich vitamin C and E, and water lily and ivy extracts. This restorative hand treatment also leaves a subtle, tantalising aroma on the skin. 

This products is heavily promoting in the fashion magazines lately and I'm so glad that I'm able to try it. I don't usually walk into their store to buy their products as I perceived it is too expensive for toiletries.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum, 60 capsules, RM320
A lightweight, silky-smooth yet no greasing serum for your face, neck and decolletage that instantly infuses your skin with youth-restoring Ceramides.  Absorb quickly to strengthen and repair the appearance of skin for a visible improvement in overall appearance and a noticeably more youthful complexion. 

Overall review about this products is great stating in Elizabeth Arden official website. Most of the customers say it works magically to their skin and is highly recommended. Some even say they can't live without it! 
I think I will lend this to my mum as maintaining youthful appearance is her main concern at her age. :-)

Bag of Love has a humble beginning with only three months of launching but I think they did pretty well! Most of the customer feedback is positive with much love!

Flash Back Homestay.Cafe at Lebuh Acheh, Georgetown

Blog as frequent as I can in this week. Blogging is never an easy task especially you have to squeeze your time between tight schedule yet this is solely an interest. To be honest, it is self discipline and perseverance that drives you a long way in blogging. 

I wanted to treat it as my habit cz I found my sense of belongings here. Moreover, I want to know how far blogging can leads me to, and I know I will never regret to choose this as part of my life. :-)

Here I am, squeeze time from my study week and two more weeks would be my final exam already. Thus I will make my recent posts as simple as possible. :-) 

Flash Back Cafe at Lebuh Acheh.

I once raised at Lebuh Acheh by my nanny. So Lebuh Acheh 打石街 has lots of my childhood memories. I always sneak to Khoo Kongsi when I am small. At that time, they have many entrances lead to Khoo Kongsi and it is not a tourist attractions yet so this place used to be unagitated.

All in all, this area has been very commercialized with cafe and hostel everywhere so nearly all the uncles and aunties who stayed in this neighbourhood has moved with their children.

Thinking of this, I am feeling the same like the teddy bear here. :-(

Kopitiam and Rumah Terbalik in Tuaran, Sabah

Third day we were driving to Kundasang but morning drop by somewhere else to have breakfast. 

First stop for Sabah type of Pork noodle, they called it 生肉面. They told me KL have it as well but not as good as this. :-) 

Kedai Kopi Melanian 金沙园生肉面

 photo DSC00335_zps48fdc18d.jpg

I like the noodle but some of them prefer the soup. I think both also nice la..worth a try. Figured out Sabah got lots of handmade noodles like this..every shop have their signature noodle. This is uncommon in Penang.

Anyway I love the chili, shop like this must have exceptional and extraordinary chili to accommodate the noodle, sometimes is not the noodle that nice in fact is the chili. Haha..

 photo DSC00336_zpsd48c2ee0.jpg

Magnificent duck meat I should say. Lol..not a duck meat lover but this fit my taste. Love it!

Next stop, we were hunting for custard bun in this coffee shop. 

 photo DSC00355_zps0d98626d.jpg

Unfortunately the baked one is not ready yet so at last we pick the steam bun. Anyway I like the Q-ness of the bun and they have variety of fillings. I chose butter and char siew, both also not bad. 
Sorry I forgot how much it is exactly, around RM1 to RM1.20 I guess. 
They are famous for the baked custard buns anyway, but it starts selling at 11.30am.

Group picha! We got a complementary chocolate drink cz we purchased the ticket with student card! Haha..student rocks! 

 photo DSC00415_zpsae085819.jpg

Frankly speaking, I don't think I will come again. nothing inside, just that everything is terbalik. 

And some of my friends feeling creepy inside, haha..anyway I am very simple-minded so didn't noticed anything difference inside the house.
