Sneak Peak of the Revlon X Lazada Surprise Box!

I was very excited to receive the Revlon X Lazada Beauty Surprise Box as you are know how much of a beauty junkie I am!

There’s a total of 5 items in the box and today I’m featuring two of my favourite products from the box!

First up is the Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Liner!

I love that it’s creamy and really easy to draw! Plus it’s waterproof and almost budge proof after it settles. And it’s always a plus point when the pencil comes with a spoolie brush to brush through the brows for a softer effect after drawing. Would recommend a light hand when using this eyebrow liner as it is also very pigmented!

Next is the Ultimate All-in-One Mascara!

This mascara comes with a mini brush that makes it easy to get to the corner lashes, making sure that no lash is left out!

It provides volume, and help to lift up the lashes and also lengthens! The colour is also super intense to give you the defined look! And of course, it’s waterproof! No smudging even after an average of 10 hours wear!

Nicely defined full brows with lashes that are plumped up in length and volume thanks to the Revlon Brow Liner and Ultimate All-in-One Mascara!

There are only 42 boxes available that will be released throughout the 3 days of the sale so fastest fingers first! $29 is really worth it!

Sinar Eco Resort: A Tranquil Escape From The City

sinar eco resort

Covering over 8 acres of land, Sinar Eco Resort has got two main areas, one side being the farm/camping area near to the river and the other side is where the lodging area is along with the main reception.

Located in the small town of Pekan Nanas, the resort is just an hour drive away from JB Sentral Customs. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself surrounded by Palm trees during the drive into the resort!

Sinar Eco Resort: Modern Lodging in a Farm

There are two kinds of room option at the resort, one being the container rooms which as the name suggests, built using those shipping containers. The other option is the apartment rooms which is in the same building as the main reception area. Apartment rooms are suitable for families or bigger groups.

Standard Apartment Common Living Area

Standard Apartment Room

Standard Apartment Room

Apartment rooms are suitable for families or bigger groups. Each apartment room requires a minimum of 4 to stay and they share a common living room within the apartment.

Nautical Theme Apartment

Nautical Theme Apartment Room

The furniture in the apartment were all built by the staff at the resort. They have a workshop by the farm area where the staff are able to create furniture etc based on their own creativity! There’s one apartment which is a Nautical theme and the idea came from the staff!

Inside the container room

Container Room Washroom

Container rooms are more suited for couples and fit maximum up to three persons. I stayed at the ground level container room and love how easily accessible I can get back to my room. The full-length window in the room allows for good lighting in the room and I love it! The room comes with all the amenities you will find in a standard hotel room.

The rooms are of a modern design and are very clean and comfortable. And yes, the bed is really comfortable! The rooms definitely exceeded the expectations of one would have from an Eco Resort.

The wallpaper is a perfect backdrop for selfies~ 😀

Food @ Sinar Eco

Yummy fried rice served during lunch.

Meals are served at the cafe right next to the reception area. I must say that I’m very well fed with the delicious home-cooked meals served up by the resort! There’s Fried Rice for lunch, Fried Chicken Chop for dinner, Nasi Lemak for Breakfast! You can opt for BBQ dinner at the poolside too!

Farm Experience & Activities At Sinar Eco Resort

Getting Up close with the Farm Animals!

Being a city girl, I hardly ever got close to farm animals even as a kid. Sure, there’s the zoo but there’s a barricade in between so you don’t really get to touch the animals. So when I saw all the animals, I was squealing like a kid. I must say I was a little scared too but you can’t blame me when you have baby goats running up to you and trying to play with you. But the baby animals are so adorable!!!

Tell me, where can you get to carry a one-day old baby sheep? Such a darling!

Getting to meet and touch the animals are not the only thing you can do! You can get your hands wet while having a go at milking the cows, and ride the horses too!

It was my first time seeing horses in real life and I was overwhelmed with excitement! I had a go at riding the horse and it was so tall!! I must admit it’s a little scary while I’m riding the horse but I was at ease because the groom was holding and leading the horse all the while.

Adventure at Sinar Eco

Other than having fun with the farm animals, one can have a go at activities like ATV rides, Kayaking, Eco-Rafting and Archery etc. You can also take either a day or night cruise down the river.

I had a go at Archery and I must say it’s not as easy as it seems. Air pistol or the real deal for me anytime! Lol. The ATV ride was fun and filled with adrenaline rush and be sure to expect mud flying all over if it’s wet!

Went for the river cruise at night and had a lovely time enjoying the night sky filled with stars! I even spotted a couple of fireflies on the ride! I definitely recommend the cruise at night! For the more adventurous type, you can even camp at the riverside for the ultimate experience!

Fun Fact: All the rafts were built by the staff at the resort! And while I was there, they are in the midst of building a 2 story raft! How cool is that?

Relax and Chill At the Resort

After all the fun and adventure at the resort, you can also opt to chill by the poolside at night and have a BBQ dinner.

Spacious Pool Room to accommodate large groups.

Karaoke room with large screen and great sound system!

They also have a very well equipped Karaoke room for you to sing to your heart’s fill. No worries about noise pollution since the only one who might complain are the chickens and goose near to the Karaoke room. If you are not a fan of singing, there’s always the pool room. 🙂

An overview of the resort from the rooftop.

They are also building a Sky Bar at the rooftop of the apartment block. I went up there and the view is awesome. You get a great overview of the whole resort! Imagine relaxing at the bar in the evening with the awesome view. Can’t wait to see how the bar looks like once it’s completed.

Thoughts on Sinar Eco Resort:

Just officially opened in October 2016, the resort is pretty new and they are adding new things every now and then! I highly recommend this place for a short getaway from the bustling city life! The resort is great for families and also suitable for young adults like me! There’s something for everyone to enjoy!

I enjoyed myself during the 2 Days 1 Night stay over at the resort and it’s a really nice break away from the fast paced city! Would love to return when their sky bar is completed!

Here’s a video to sum up my 2D1N stay at the resort! 😀

Tokyo Travelogue: A Day Of Eating!

Tokyo Travelogue: Makan Edition

No Tokyo travelogue will do without food. Food is probably the most essential of a trip I would say, especially when you’re travelling in Japan!

So I’ve spent a day in Tokyo eating to my heart’s fill before spending the night at Tokyo Tower enjoying the night view~

Tsukiji Fish Market

Need I say more about anything on Tsukiji Fish Market? It’s the place to go to for fresh sashimi and sushi! And what’s better than starting the day with an awesome Sushi breakfast? Tsukiji Fish Market was scheduled to move in Nov 2016 but plans were delayed until winter season in 2017/2018 earliest! So I say, plan your trips there soon! You never know when they might decide to bring forward the move date!

Other than fresh fish, you can find dried goods store around the market where you can get those Dried Hotate for souvenirs! Fresh fruits can be seen in the market too!

And not forgetting the Tamagoyaki! This is a must try!

Grilled Hotate! Fresh and juicy!! Need I say more?

End your Tsukiji trip with a soft serve and you can never go wrong with Matcha when in Japan! (^.^)/

Just follow the crowd from Tsukiji Train station and you find your way to the fish market! You should be safe as long as you pass by Tsukiji Hongan-ji~

Pablo Cafe Omotesando 

Other than Baked, Pablo would be the other famous Cheese tart from Japan. Since I’m in Omotesando, how can I miss the opportunity to visit the cafe right? There will be a slight queue for dining in at the cafe at level 2, so do take note of that.

Ordered their original cheese tart served warm. It comes with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream which makes it more delish! I really love how fluffy the cheese tart is. It literally melts in your mouth! Prefer this over Baked personally and can’t wait for them to have an outlet in Singapore.

Luke’s Lobster Omotesando 

tokyo travelogue luke lobster

I first knew of Luke’s Lobster from a friend’s Instagram post and I tell myself I need to try it out when I’m in Tokyo.

I reached Luke’s Lobster around late afternoon 4.30pm and sadly they have sold out of their famous Lobster roll!! (>~<)/ But since we’re there, I’ve decided to try out their other options which is the Shrimp and Crab roll. I love how they have half and half option so we can try out two flavours in one roll! Though I must say that I wished I have gone straight for the Crab roll option because that is so good! The bread is warm and soft and oh so fragrant! I shared one roll with my mum as we both had quite a lot to eat already but I dare say I could finish one whole roll myself!

If you want to try out their signature Lobster roll, would definitely recommend you to visit earlier in the day! And I must say, I’m so loving the peaceful and vibrant vibe of Omotesando. Just sitting by Luke’s Lobster enjoying my roll and people watch. That is a lifestyle to look forward to. (^.^)/

First Beauty Haul in 2017: YSL Tint-In Balm

I’m a huge fan of YSL Lipsticks and I couldn’t contain my excitement when news of them releasing a new range of lipsticks is out. It’s the perfect product for my very first beauty haul in 2017! 🙂

YSL Tint-In Balm

YSL Beauty have recently launch a new range of lipsticks, the Volupté Tint-In Balm. It’s a lip tint and balm 2-in-1 kind of lip product which give that juicy gloss looked on your lips. It is highly similar to the Volupté Shine range which I love so I knew I had to get my hands on this range. And especially when it comes in such pretty layout with a lip shape core!

The Range

Available in 12 shades, you can surely find one that suits you! Or just get a couple as the payoff is sheer, these YSL Tint-In Balm are perfect for daily wear! The Lip shaped core is the lip balm which gives you the long lasting moisture! 🙂

The colour payoff is sheer at first swipe, but build-able with layering to get a deeper shade. Texture is soft and melts on your lips and totally not sticky at all though it gives that highly glossed look! Similar to the Tint-In Oil, it’s meant to last as a light tint on the lips. This range is perfect rendition of My Lips But Better kind of lipsticks. Plus points for being extra moisturising too!

Retailing at $54 each, the YSL Tint-In Balm is available at all YSL Beauty Counters across the island.

My Haul + Swatch

I’ve got 3 colours of of 12 in No 2: Tease Me Pink, No 8: Catch Me Orange and No 9: Tempt Me Pink.

Here’s the swatches, all of 1 swipe. No 2 is more like a soft sweet pink, No 8 is a pure orange and no 9 is more of a sheer fuchsia pink kinda of shade.

ysl tint-in balm swatch

I can foresee myself wearing these very often as I really like the sheer juicy look as compared to matte lippies. Non-sticky and moisturizing are huge plus points for me in a lipstick! Look out for my #MOTDs on Instagram wearing these moisturising babies soon!

What beauty products have you already bought in 2017? Share with me!

Playboy Condoms in Singapore

When it comes to Playboy products, what will you think of? For me, it will be the Playboy perfumes that are available locally.

Now, they have launched their line of condoms and lubricants in the local market. You can finally have more choice of brands when it comes to having safe sex.

The Launch

The Playboy condom launch party was held at Suites 26. Where’s more apt than a club to launch a condom line right? The place was decorated with balloons and if you have sharp eyes, you will notice some of the condom balloons! It’s definitely a cute idea for people to touch and feel those condoms without looking awkward!

Playboy condoms is available in pack of 3 or 12 and can be purchased at Watsons, Guardian, Red Mart, Buzz and Hao Mart!

The range of Playboy lubricants is also available in 5 different variants. Safe to use with the Playboy condoms, massage and for a little added fun in the bedroom. (^-^)
