Food adventure in Malacca

I had a weekend trip to Malacca with my friends for a food adventure! Man, can we eat! Haha By the way, Malacca is sooo jam! Eventhough I absolutely love the food there, I dislike driving around Malacca town and get caught in the jam and the famous places almost always have people queuing up like train =.=

Let's see what I ate in Malacca!

First stop was Klebang for its famous coconut shake!

That was the most delicious coconut shake ever! Haha It's my first time and now I know why people would line up for it. Also, the kuih muih there were yummy too. You should definitely try the keropok lekor which was soft and tasty. 

But, just look at the queue!

A food fest! Everything was yummy and also we were hungry so we wiped everything off the plate hehe

Something I would definitely come back for =)

Then we headed to Malacca town to continue our food adventure.

Durian cendol at San Shu Gong along Jonker Street was horrible. So jelak! But it was just for try lol

Jonker street was a street filled with food! We practically stopped at every 10 minutes to buy something haha

I think I had way too much ice cream =p

Popiah ice cream. Unique! It has the popiah peanuts with ice cream wrapped in popiah skin.

Egg ice cream. Basically it was ice cream in a shape of an egg mould lol.

And best part was I found the famous Macaroon Ice Cream. Negative Celsius was there and I had a pink and tiffany green macaroon with blueberry ice cream topped with marshmallow and crushed oreo. The blueberry ice cream was something new and it was mouth watering!

Some potato chips which I find very unique hehe 
I always like to try something new.

Yummy Quail eggs.

Of course, can never leave Malacca without the chicken rice ball. It was mehh though. Was never a fan. I think over the years, it just got worst.

First time eating satay celup haha! I know, it feels like I'm not Malaysian =p
Another great experience and once again we took so many sticks like it's free!

Nyonya and assam laksa with cendol and rojak.
I love the cendol with gula melaka!

Visited The Daily Fix cafe.

Had their rose iced latte.

Banana pancake with nutella spread and ice cream!

Looking at the food pictures now make me H-U-N-G-R-Y!! LOL

Skin Shield is an all-natural skin care range made from pure organic Ashitaba and a fusion of other precious botanical extracts that work in synergy for ultimate skin renewal. It works on the key factor of Ashitaba’s remarkable ability to regenerate itself when injured thus demonstrating astounding properties to stimulate skin nourishment, healing and transformation.

Skin Shield Travelling Set.

HYDRA-PURIFYING CLEANSER- With loads of skin vitamins and minerals from organically grown Ashitaba and enriched with the lightening properties of daisy flower extracts, this all-natural formulation cleanses thoroughly but gently, while brightening and moisturizing skin for a pearly, translucent glow.

Apply every morning and evening on pre-moistened face and neck. Lightly massage to detoxify skin. Rinse with lukewarm water. Skin feels hydrated. 

HYDRATING, ENERGIZING & PORE-REFINING LOTION MIST SPRAY- Made from the purest extracts of organic Ashitaba laden with skin calming moisturizing and purifying benefits. This lightweight lotion gently whisks away impurities and oils that clog pores which leads to skin breaks-outs and blemishes. It restores the skin’s moisture balance after cleansing routine, and together with the Witch Hazel Extract, helps to minimize the appearance of pores, creating a smooth, matte, healthy-looking skin restored to its natural pH.

The travelling set is not a mist spray but the full size is a mist spray.
Soak a cotton pad with the lotion and smoothen over cleansed skin every morning and evening. Pat dry. 

Skin feels refreshed and rejuvenated.

LIFT AND BRIGHT SERUM - Enriched with potent antioxidants from Ashitaba, this powerful serum targets ageing at the core by infusing nutrients into the deepest layers of the skin to help restore skin elasticity and firmness. Active polyphenols and flavonoids in Ashitaba play a role in preventing the progression of cumulative damage from free radicals and environmental aggressors, particularly sun damage. It contains a cocktail of natural ingredients combined with potent blends of bio actives. It contains peptides and essential collagen to replenish lost moisture for a supple, fair and lifted skin.

It's watery -like and apply every morning and evening on cleansed and toned skin.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

He is back!! Ethan Hunt is back to save the world- yet again.

I loved all the Mission Impossible movies! This one is no exception.

At 53, Tom Cruise could still do all these stunts and still look dashing in his suits ^_^
In this installment, IMF is disbanded. Hence, the title. Ethan and his team went rogue to stop a sinister counter-organization to the IMF, the Syndicate. But then again, Ethan has always gone rogue in his missions.

The movie was action packed with a good storyline. Only thing missing was....

..the lack of romance. I really loved his  romance with Michelle Monaghan in MI3. Probably the lack of romance in this movie is because they wanted to preserve his romance with her continuing from the storyline in MI4.

Other than that, if you're looking for a good blockbuster movie, this one is highly recommended. Watch out for his stunts on a flying plane, on a bike and while he was holding his breath under water. He actually did his own stunt on a flying plane by himself! A true actor spirit indeed. This is the 5th movie in the Mission Impossible series and the movie just keeps getting better and better.

Another eye candy is Jason Bourne aka Hawkeye aka Jeremy Renner hehe
This is a show for girls to check out the 2 main stars =p

Go check this movie out. Great movie for the entire family!

Fitted out with a sleek illuminated island bar, state of the art sound system by TW Audio, three spacious private suites offering touch screen karaoke entertainment, a DJ console and a generously spaced stage where performing artists take centre stage.

I love the washroom sign hehe

We were in the biggest private suite and it was huge with darts machine and a pool table! Fantastic for a private party =)

SkinSoul Ultra Soft Facial Towelettes

I love make-up wipes. It's so easy and convenient and with the right wipe, removing make-up will be so much hassle-free.

I find SkinSoul Ultra Soft Facial Towelettes to be really effective in removing make-up.  It is formulated with Swiss Glacier Water with 4:4:3 combination meaning
4 Essential Oils. 4 Antioxidants. 3 Hydrating & Soothing Ingredients


It removes waterproof make-up and mascara very easily leaving skin feeling smooth, hydrated and moisturised!

6o wipes per packet which costs only RM53 at SkinSoul.
Totally worth it I tell you!

The towelettes gently but effectively lift away all traces of dirt, oil and make-up for clean, fresh skin in one wipe.

Oil dissolvers go deep down to remove pore-clogging impurities without overdrying your face, while a blend of soothing nutritive oils conditions and hydrates skin with vitamins. With one step, skin is perfectly clean and refreshed with no heavy residue. Plus, with the essential oils, it smells quite good as well!

  So, let's put it to test:
From top; mascara brow, mascara, eyeliner, lipstick and foundation

Lift resealable sticker and remove one wipe.

Gently soak and wipe over to remove impurities. No harsh movements needed.

Ta-dah! One wipe and almost everything is wiped out. Just a little waterproof mascara residue which is removed in the second wipe. Super effective!

Now with a face full of make-up that needs to be removed before going to bed.

Let's see its magic on waterproof eyeliner, waterproof mascara, waterproof brow mascara, foundation, blusher and lipstick.
Soak and wipe it all off...

Removed stubborn make-up stains!

Effectively and easily removed the make-up from half of my face. No residue are left and even the waterproof mascara is gone with no black stains on my eyes =) I hate it that sometimes some make-up removers still leave me with black panda eyes because mascara is not removed properly.

Right after(no edit)
With just one towelette and my entire face is super fresh and clean. I have not even cleansed my face with cleanser, toner and moisturiser yet and my skin felt thoroughly cleansed.
I was quite surprised at the results at the same time super happy I found an effective wipe to remove make-up and impurities. There was no skin irritation and it is suitable for all skin type as it does not contain paraben, harsh chemicals or artificial perfume.

<3 the SkinSoul Facial Towelettes.
Non greasy, non oily and does not over dry my skin. Skin is left fresh, cleansed, hydrated, calmed, soothed and moisturised after use. It's simple, easy and convenient to use in just 1 simple wipe!
