Explore Malaysia -- Langkawi Day 2 (Duck Tour & Langkawi Cable Car)

On the second day in Langkawi, my old folks wake up early for breakfast. Our room did not come together with breakfast buffet, so we have our breakfast in locals "mamak stall" (indian stall) eating roti prata and mixed rice with curry chickens (heavy breakfast!)

Our plan for the day was to go to Langkawi Cable Car & SkyBridge. I believe all the lucky stars were by our side as each of the attraction did not requires us to queue. The crowds started only after lunch. With GPS instructions, we managed to find our way to the attractions.

Oriental Village is next to the attractions. I saw a booth at the entrance of the Oriental Village selling tickets for the Duck Tour + 3D Art Museum for RM70. Immediately, we decided to buy the package as we wanted to give our parents to experience the Duck Tour.

*BUT guys, don't rush to buy tickets can get better rates & prices at the Cable Car's counters. Trust me!! *
Make a comparison yourself here:

Duck tour was really really fun! My parents & siblings enjoyed it so much too as the "duck" can travel on land and can float in water too. The duration of the tour is 45 minutes, and will pass through the Telaga Harbour & The Danna Hotel. Between the journey, we can enjoyed the beautiful landscapes and scenery. We saw a few yachts parked at the harbor and I snapped a few photos too.

and i'm really obsessed with this lighthouse!

after the duck tour, we went to purchase Cable Car's tickets and decided to keep the 3D Art Museum to the last session. Luckily the queue was not too long and we managed to buy the Cable Car + SkyDome for RM20/pax (this is the price for Malaysian, RM35 for foreigners)

Nothing much too interesting about SkyDome as we were being instructed to sit and view the 3D Screen for around 5-10 minutes. I felt dizzy! Suggest those unable to take 3D, please don't watch it.

Langkawi Cable Car is one of the major attraction in this island. Journey from the base to the peak of Gunung Machinchang is around 15 minutes, which we will be able to stop in the middle station before ended on top. 15 minutes felt like 15 years for me! I can't make myself feeling comfortable and I was nervous the whole journey up and down. I was grabbing my mum's hand the whole journey!

Yet, the scenery was breath-taking and amazing! An eyes-opening experience!

Review: Faith in Face Hydrogel Mask

Ever since new semester kicks in, I have been really really busy with almost everything. Times never seem enough for me. I have being traveling a lots lately between Kuala Lumpur & Singapore by bus express. It was tiring, of course but both of us never felt boring for the activities arranged. But unfortunately, i have been neglected my skin lately. I did felt my complexion is dull and my pores are getting so huge *again*
I have been trying out Faith in Face masks recently. Faith in Face, the no.1 Hydrogel Mask Brand in Korea, was first launched in 2012 by a multi-national team of young comestic experts from Korea, Britain and Canada after 3 years of research and development.

Faith in Face believes in using only organic and naturally derived extracts, such as vegetable collagen, essentials oil, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and free from parabens and mineral oils. Most importantly for animal lovers, Faith in Face DOES NOT perform animal testing on their products.

How cool is that right?
There are 5 different variants available:
1) After Shower Look Hydrogel Mask
2) Nourish Me Hydrogel Mask
3) Black and White Film Star Hydrogel Mask
4) Miss Invisible Pore Hydrogel Mask
5) Hold Me Tight Hydrogel Mask

I was privileged to receive first 3 masks to try out :)
How to use:
1) After cleansing, carefully remove the thinner protective film from the top and bottom masks to expose the smooth surface
2) Apply the smooth side of the masks to your face
3) Remove the thicker protective film and adjust fit on top and bottom masks to the curves of your face
4) After 30 minutes, remove the mask and discard, gently pat your face with fingertips to help skin absorb the remaining essence
My review:

When I first opened the parcel, my eyes went BIG!! The masks packaging are so vintage and adorable. Every piece of mask packaging has a girl's photo and personally I thought it is cute. Honestly, applying hydrogel mask onto my face was a difficult and messy procedure but luckily they split the mask into two sections which make everything easier. Once application, my skin felt cooling and no irritation occurs.

The hydrogel mask will not dried up even after 30 minutes, instead I found that my skin was refreshing and moisturized pretty well. I can noticed that my pores were getting smaller and complexion was brighter than before.

I did not edit my skin condition in the photos above..and honestly I was amazed with the results in photo 4!  Faith in Face did a good job in creating such an amazing beauty product!!

Where to get:

Anyone interested can purchase from Watsons for S$14.50 (box of 3 sheets)

Little Black Dress

We went to a wedding dinner on the weekend in Kuala Lumpur, Mister's friend was getting married with her best friend. One thing i love attending wedding is I really enjoyed seeing newly-wed couple staring into each other eyes with full of love. Everyone attending the event with a blessing hearts hoping the couple will stay together forever.

Another thing I always got tired about was thinking what to wear to the event. I have a closet full of clothes yet I always ended up with nothing to wear. Mister always got frustrated whenever I said so, as his clothes occupied little corner only in the closet.

Finally I found out that "little black dress" will definitely making her way into my closet. I definitely have love-hate relationship with black dress. Black dress is classic and versatile for any events -- but as my blog's title is Jose Lovin' Colors, I definitely love colorful outfits. Colors brings out happiness and energy to anyone.

Meanwhile, my love to this "little black dress" will grow stronger and both of us will be pretty good friends.
 black dress: H&M
Do you have a black dress which suit every events?

Happy Halloween 2015

Last day of October!! Wow, where did the times goes?

I'm glad that October is almost over now which means Christmas is getting nearer and nearer -- in 9 weeks! I love love festive seasons.

Meanwhile, Happy Halloween for those who celebrate this spooky day. For the last 2 years, Mister and I went to Clarke Quay to snap photos with strangers in costumes around this times.. this year, we are unable to visit Clarke Quay again as this weekend we have to go Kuala Lumpur to attend a wedding event. and I'm going to miss those moments wandering around enjoying people watching & observing all the strangers in their weirdest costumes -- and requesting them to have photos with me.

We are not wearing any costumes or planning to rent one too. We are just love taking photos (weirdo!)
Hereby, I decided to take out the photos that we snapped on 2013,2014 and recently at USS Halloween Horror Night.

Have a spooky night :)

Tasting Event -- Irresistible Golden Samurai Burgers

If someone ask me - where is your favorite fast food restaurant? My answer will be McDonald's restaurant. Growing up, McDonald's occupied a corner in my heart and whenever i felt moody or in need of "comfort food"..this is the best place for me to dine in. And I will always stick to the same burgers forever until the day before yesterday....

I felt privileged to be invited by OMY Blog Club and McDonald's Singapore to attend an exclusive tasting session for the upcoming launch of the all-new Golden Beef Samurai and Golden Chicken Samurai burgers.I felt really nervous attending this event as this was my first time, but everyone welcomed us with open arms. We were been asked our choice for burger for the night and I went for Golden Beef Samurai.
Delight in a tantalising mix of sweet and savoury as the goodness of a classic Samurai Burger - juicy chicken or beef patty dipped in Teriyaki sauce, topped with creamy sauce and crisp lettuce is combine with a refreshing burst of sweetness from a grilled pineapple ring. This delicious combination is then served in between toasted oat bran buns.

I totally savored the whole Golden Beef Burger in not more than 10 minutes.I was hungry, yes I am..but trust me - Samurai Burgers are really really tasty especially with the pineapple in between. The photos below did not do the justice as I adjusted the wrong lighting from my camera.
Complete the Golden Samurai experience with Seaweed Shaker Fries and Mocha flavored McFlurry with caramelized biscuits - a delicious blend of soft serve, crunchy, buttery cookies and coffee flavor. The Mocha flavored McFlurry with caramelized biscuits is available from S$2.90.
Each Extra Value Meal, which includes a Golden Beef Samurai or Golden Chicken Samurai burger, French Fries (M) and a refreshing glass of Coca-Cola (S) will be available from S$7.85.

The Golden Beef Samurai or Golden Chicken Samurai burger, Seaweed Shaker Fries (L) and a Green Tea (M) will be available from S$8.95.
Beside tasting Golden Samurai burgers, we got to know new friends/bloggers and each of them are very friendly and down-to-earth person. We chit-chatted and laughed over jokes made from Sylvia, a cheerful girl and snapped too much photos from the photo booth.

The night was GOOD and SATISFYING!!

p.s. The Golden Samurai Burgers will be available from 29 October in McDonald's Singapore, while stocks last. Faster try it out won't regret!

*Thanks OMY Blog Club and McDonald's Singapore for the invitation*

Explore Singapore -- USS Halloween Horror Nights

As long as I remember, I've never been to Halloween Party or Halloween Events before ever since I came to Singapore. Each year when October arrived, I will started to influence mister to go Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Nights..and he rejected me every.single.time

I never give up wanting to experience the Halloween Nights in USS. Surprisingly, mister agreed to go this year together with my bunch of friends. Thanks to Alex, we got early birds tickets which came with free Halloween mugs. I waited really patiently for the day to come and finally, last Saturday was the night to enter the Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Nights!! My friends and I were pretty excited!!!
There are four haunted houses, three scary zones a few rides and souvenir shops available for the horror night. As we heard plenty of feedback mentioning they don't have quite enough time to visit all the attractions due to long queues, we decided to go as early as we can. Our goals were to finish all the attractions to cover back the entrance fees. Crowds started to build up when we arrived at the entrance. The gate opened exactly 7.30pm, my friends, mister and i ran as fast as we can to get to the one of the haunted house. this was how desperate we were that moments - no one ever know how long the queue was.

haunted houses:
true Singapore ghost stories: the MRT
hell house
tunnel people
siloso gateway Blk 50

scare zones:
the invaders
hungry ghosts

other attractions:
revenge of the Mummy
battlestar galactica: human & cylon
transformers the ride: the ultimate 3D battle
enchanted airways
scared shrekless
puss in boots' giant journey
canopy flyer

i visited three out of four haunted houses. i'm a very timid person who prefer romantic movies over thrill/scary movies. i put a HUGE courage to enter all those haunted houses, preparing for the worst to come to my face. my friends were in front of me while mister was behind me to protect me from "danger". although i knew all the ghosts/vampires/monsters were "made from real humans", the lighting and music did their magic to create spooky and creepy environment....which freaked me out!! i screamed a lots!! and shivered the whole times i was in the haunted houses..

some makeup were too real & professional..and i started my wild imaginations wondering when the full moon come, will they turn into "real monsters"? will they starts to search for blood to feed their desires? will we become their victims? will they tear our flesh? eeww.. enough of these stupid questions! now, i start to freak out again.

below are a few photos from the spooky night, i blurred out my friends' face for privacy purpose:

the quality of the photos are terribly bad..and and we can't snap much photos as some attractions did not allow photography.

before we left, we visited souvenir shops to sooth our nerves. each of us sweated too much, too sluggish and in need of air-conditioning. too, we snapped photos :)

do you went to Halloween party too? do share your experience with me :)

Review: Creme Simon Sample Kits

I'm a girl who love trying out new skincare products and even receiving free samples from various beauty companies. Well,who doesn't love free samples,right? Few months ago, while browsing through blogs, a few local bloggers made introduction and positive reviews about Creme Simon.I was curious as I never heard of the brand before and immediately clicked the link to find out what it was about and guess what, no U-turn after that.

Creme Simon is a natural French skincare brand from France and slowly, Creme Simon have became one of the most favorite brand in Singapore. Guess what, Creme Simon is tailored to the unique conditions of the climate therefore behind each packaging there are icons resembling 4 seasons. Creme Simon is free from parabens, alcohol, silicones, sulfates and colorings.

After registering myself in the main page, I made a few exploration and found out that Creme Simon did gave samples for customers to try out. Their samples are not in sachet (which I think is superb inconvenience), instead they gave generous amounts in a small tubes.

These are a few samples sent over via mail and i tried out each of them within a few weeks:

Gentle Double Exfoliation Scrub (S$68)
This is one of my favorite scrub ever! I've been using the samples ever since they mailed over and now the original size is included in my weekly skincare routine too. It contains small beads which helps my skin to achieve fine and smoother version.

Lymphatic Contouring & Lifting Gel (S$98)
It's a gel turning into oil to do the massage job on the skin to get the lifting effect. I tried for twice and it is indeed a great massaging gel as I definitely seeing some lifting results on my face. The residue left is not too oily which i used tissue to wipe off or wash with clean water.

Oxygenating Light Day Moisturizer (S$95.01)
I use this as a day cream after toner and before sunblock. It is easy to penetrate into my skin and helps brighten up my complexion. And it is not oily! The smells is relaxing and great which helps boost up my mood for the day.

Restorative Sleeping Mask (S$68)
This would be my another favorite sample beside the scrub. I love sleeping mask as I'm pampering myself while sleeping. Don't you think this is the best invention in the beauty world? Sometimes I'm just too lazy or no time for applying mask..and thanks to sleeping mask, my skin is getting so good and cooperative the second day. It is so easy to do makeup the next day with a luminous skin. Totally worth to purchase an original size.
