The start of a brew-tea-ful addiction.

As you can read on the title above.  I'm a fully converted tea-addict.

Why? Because there was once upon a night where I wasn't thinking and I had finished a little bit of iced caramel latte left on the table.  I had it and I cannot sleep the whole night.  And there was my regret...

As I was searching the internet for unique tea blends (and companies) that operates locally and found TeaBirdTea. I purchase a couple of travel packs to give myself a try for their blends.  Being a tea noob, I'm very dumb at making teas and my taste buds can't seem to accept the taste of the teas I made.  So I reached out to their team for some tips and had a very positive responses from Ashleigh the MD of Balcony Bloomer (the company).  Such a sweetheart she even sent out a tin for me to give it a try (oh well shall I say #spons lol!).  

Later that week, I discovered the perfect recipe using my knight and shining armor.  
LEMON SLICE.  

Not to worry lemons doesn't kill the taste at all, they actually made it better.  However, they do made the taste a little less strong, which actually suits my taste buds.  

So I guess it would be nice if I share to you guys my simple recipe, hopefully they'll made your day just like mine.


Thanks for hanging out here, I'll see brew-all later byeeee

Unboxing Nintendo Switch | Super Mario Bundle

 I'm sorry I know it's February alreadyyyyyy T_T


Let's forget about that and rewind back to the first day of 2018 and my new year's resolution was to buy myself a freakin' Nintendo Switch!!!  Yes, I achieved my resolution just about the first week of 2018 and I got the whole year not regretting anything.

I'm to lazy to type, so here's a very mute kind of unboxing.  For the people who's wondering what they will get in the box.  Note that I got a bundle switch, so that explained the physical copy of Super Mario game.   

Let's get the excitement begin shall we...

Drum roll!!!
 
The first layer you'll see when you open the box.

Accessories (including game) in the second layer.

And these are the things that you'll received together in the box. 
Game dock - power and HDMI port at the back.
Joy-con grips.
Joy-con straps

AC adapter and HDMI cable.

 
The games: Super Mario Odyssey (included) and I add on the game that will ruin everybody's relationship, Mario Kart 8.

Ugly flat lay for you guys to drool over.

Btw, I got it on sale because of Asia release promo at RM1699 for the bundle set because I know we'll never get it at this price ever again.  Worth every penny!

#notspons | Tea Obsession OMG!!!

 Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored neither a review.  Just sharing what I love to you guys out there.*

As I'm looking forward to 2018 meaning I'm going to be 25 next year, feeling older I would rather venture into something that I never ever thought of.  TEAS!!!  However, I have never ever made a good cup of tea tho because I have no idea how much sugar would make the tea taste good.  How bad it turned out I would just drink it up and let go...

So I went up to my dear neighbor's online store.  She sells (sea shells) basically organic beauty skin products and as I supposed a tea enthusiast herself, she's selling teas also.  Can get em in a normal packet or in bulk.  I ordered earlier this week but I finally got to start on the tasting.  Since they're having a Year End Sale, I guess this is my chance to spoil myself.  

Literally I bought a pack of dried lemon tea to detox off all my sins, whole collection of flower tea samples since I'm surveying the best for me to get in bigger pack and a very cute and insanely durable lazy teapot/brewer tumbler.  My taste buds gonna be lit af!!!

So here's my so called creative photoshoot I've done this morning, the reason I had to wait until the weekends for an excellent morning lighting.

Shop for teas here: https://www.organictouchmalaysia.com/








 
And yes got this Limited Edition from her also.  I would have to tell you like million times, it's insanely durable.  Just in case if anyone ask and yes I'm soooo in love with this tumbler. 


Okay byeeee.

#StandTogether | Kerinting pon jadi isu ke?

Scroll2 FB skali aku tertengok video ni.  Anyone yang tak kenal Arwind, he's a social media influencer because he is too awesome being Mak Cik Roast-mah speakingsss about shit that are wrong with school exam papers.  Entertaining but he has a deep backstory about his life.



In my case: 

Well apparently having a different kind of hair (straight vs curly) also kene mock wei during primary school, kau different sikit je confirm mesti kena punya...so having natural curls for me during primary was a huge struggle.

Although pasal rambut je pon, tapi kau tak tau drama sekolah rendah. Kejujuran kanak2 adalah perkara yang amat menyakitkan beb. 

*sbb tu aku x suka cakap dgn budak2 sbb selain drpd dianugerahkan dengan mulut yang lancang, tangan aku juga boleh terbang*

Bila tanya mak aku, dia cakap rambut cantik special tak semua orang dapat rambut curly (obviously jawapan mak sendiri, kau buruk buruk nak mampos pon dia tetap cakap cantik)..bila hadap cikgu aku asik kene label "Tak kemas". 
 
Paling best sorang cikgu ni, suruh pakai minyak rambut. Tolong eh semua, rambut kerinting dgn minyak rambut is forever ENEMY. Please educate yourself first ok.

Tu lah cerita budak sekolah rendah kan, masih kecil masih licin.. Tak tau gamaknya bila dah akil baligh bulu kat situ sama kerinting je dgn rambut aku HAHAH!!!🖕

Tapi yang apa2 pon yg kuat mocking semua tu Melayu while I'm genetically LOTS OF MIX.

So I win.

Pranking my mom with fake earplugs.

Please excuse my huge ass nose.  It's in the genetics.
So I was nearly murdered by my mom.  

Long story short, I always have a thing with piercings but I was never allowed to do more other than the normal on earlobe ones.  Yes shocking, a goth with normal piercings.  The fact that I'm afraid of my mom and possible infectious puss actually made my rebellious spirit to chill on that part.

As I'm an adult now (but still scared of mom), buying shit is not longer a problem because I have my own salary and no one ever gonna question about what I purchased, so my creative spirit was like, if you cannot rip out your earlobe, why don't you fake one?

When I saw the fake ear pieces online, I was like;
Credits to Google
So I bought em and got em!!!  And then texted mom *evil grin*

P/s: I don't have the texting screenshot but I'll try to get you guys through this lol

Me: Hi mom! Look!!! Nice ayyy??? *sends photo*
Not the actualy image of me throwing shit to mom but same thing..same thing*
Mom: *trying to control her shit* Yeah nice, but what's is that?

When you showed your mom something, and she saw it and she still ask what is it, you know you gonna get yo ass beat up right? Yeah that's how it was.

Me: Well, I took a time off from the office to get my ears done just now.  You know earplugs.   

Mom: What's earplugs? 
*she knows but it's like a response from her deep denial* 

Me: *actually sent this photo*

Me: Seee...earplugs!!!  Cool right?????  I had it done just now on 1 ear first, then gonna get another one done later.  Mine is quite small coz it's for newbies, they rather not cut it big tho.

Mom:  Stop that shit! You are going to go the hospital and sew that hole back and don't you dare cut the other ear!!!  Stop being stupid and destroying your ears!!!  *and etc.*

Me: But it's nice, I like it :D

Mom: No! Sew it back!!!

Me: Mom, chill...I just got these today...
 
Mom: WTF?!

Me: I had to prank you tho

Mom: I will actually take you back to that place and sew it you know!

My Go-To Makeup Kit | Office

Hello again, it's me the morbidly lazy blogger who actually thought of quit blogging forever.  Seriously it's a fcking struggle you guys hahahaha...  

However, there's another hardcore struggle for me tho that is waking up extra early for work just because I need to do my makeup.  Yes the first 6 months into the job of course you still got the hype tho but now, bitch, I'd just wake up, shower and contemplating to kill myself for the next 8 hours.

The first 23 years of my life, I have never thought of having a go-to makeup kit would be a necessity because I have never been this tired and my face have not constantly breaking out as much as it is now but now I finally get it why Benefit selling little makeup kits although it is mainly targeted for travel purpose but as for me it is office worthy.  Apparently I have a lot of makeup in my collection and adding more shit would make me feel guilty to the old ones since I'm not using them that often.  (DEFINITELY BUYING MORE MAKEUP THE SECOND I GET OUT OF THE HOUSE)

Considering I have tons of crap in my vanity, I just had a mini beauty bin journey and shortlisted all my stuff that I might throw out but they still perform well on my face.  So here you go;








Most importantly keeping it minimal in my pouch



Finally it's here!!! | Colorpop Old VS New swatch

Remember like a month ago I wanted to make a swatch of my old and new Colourpop liquid lipstick (matte and metallic)?  

So here you go;

 #colourpop #ultramatteliquidlipstick #ultrametallicliquidlipstick #lax #tulle #embellish #zebra



Their eyeliner pot still sucks.

2017 | Birthday Haul

 So yes, I finally turned 24.  Hell fucking yeah!

Nothing much on my birthday tho because I don't like parties, so I just have a good (and emotional breakdown) of myself for the joyous day.  The only regret I had was not taking an annual leave as my boss actually did encourage me for 4 seconds to suppose taking a day off and locked myself in my bedroom.

Being 24 sucks but I have a job now so I can buy all the shit that I wanted tho.  Anyways, thank you to all who wished for a graceful birthday.  

So here's my birthday haul;

1) Jefferee Star Velour Lip Scrub in Orange Soda

Only 2 words can describe this: FUCKING DELICIOUS

This lip scrub is sugar-based and very safe to lick and swallow.  Not to mention that my fat ass can't stop licking this thing and probably has smoother lips than a baby's butt.

2) Colorpop Creme Gel Pot in Call Me

I ordered Swerve but got this one instead.  Okay I can accept that.  However, this eyeliner is fucking horrible.  Maybe I'm cursed when it comes to gel pot eyeliner but seriously it is dry and gets drier really fast on my eyelids.  I even use a Sigma angled eyeliner brush tip but still drawing a line is very impossible form me.

Seriously I need help on softening this formula.  Any ideas?

3) Colorpop Ultra Matte/Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Embellish and Zebra

These 2 formulas all I can say is EXCELLENT!!!  I was looking for a very dark brown lipstick and I just found my lips soul matte mate.  The metallic Zebra just blew my mind because it is very comfortable.

Oh well, I guess I'll continue the color swatch of these new liquid lippies compared to my old 2015 ones.

Thanks for reading, have a nice day.

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

Recollections Creative Year Unicorn Spiral Planner | What's inside?

SPOILER ALERT

Well holo again everyone.  As today I'm going to share to you guys my new Recollection's spiral bound planner which I'm suppose to use it for next year, HOWEVER it is an 18-month planner and starts from July 2017, so yeah I started using it already.  

Bitch, this planner is thick as fuck!!  Not to mention the paper quality as for me is excellent compared to the lame thin Typo planner papers.  Basically Micheal's made this as a dupe for Erin Condren (as you can see the physicals features of it) and a little bit of Mambi's Happy Planner inspired on the inside.  

No, you will not get this in Malaysia unless you get to find a personal shopper to buy it for you and no Micheal's don't ship to Malaysia, I've contacted their customer service beforehand.  I had a wonderful journey with my personal shopper who is also a planner addict and she made her brother who study in USA to get it for us.  Thank you so much again :D

Oh well, let's have a look what's inside. 



Are you ready guys? Here we go...

Told ya it's thick


When I received this, BITCH I'M SHOOK!!!

However, I truly hate the dividers.  I was expecting for something extra and over the top Unicorn-y just like the back cover but they're just some pastel blerghhh.  I saw dividers of other planners in this spiral collection and they're more (dopier?) than this.  The only thing the boosts it's sale is the shaker front cover.  

Cover (which you can removed just like EC): 5/5
Dividers: 2/5
Printing & other features: 4.5/5
Paper quality: 10/5 (seriously I love the quality)
Overall: 4.8/5

Still worth it!

I'll have to forget the idea of getting a Ban.do planner for next year.  This is very enough for me to use as personal planner for next year tho..   Why I said personal? Because I have another new binder for my business planning.  

Very well, thank you so much for reading this entry. 
Happy planning!!!
