Brown Pocket - Gurney Paragon, Penang

mood: random
song: sakura sakura (rin)


I've recently discovered a cafe in Gurney Paragon with a good ambiance and comfortable seating just nice after a tiring day of shopping. Besides, it is also a good place for gathering with friends and family. Brown Pocket offers various types of waffles, pancakes, crepes and ice-creams. 

So far, I've only manage to try 3 flavors of their waffle and pancakes. Honestly, I really do love their waffles as their waffles does not get soggy and remain crisp even though they got cold.

Berries Duet - RM16.90
signature waffle and pancake served with berries compote and ice-cream

 Apple Duet - RM16.90
signature waffle and pancakes served with cinnamon apple, raisins, cranberries and ice cream

 Banana Duet - RM16.90
signature waffle and pancakes served with grilled banana and ice cream

Honestly, the combination of every of their waffles were really nice. Two thumbs up. By the way, I have been going there for 5 consecutive Sunday ever since I discovered the place. I found myself a new "third place" now. ;)

Victoria Secret's Sexy Little Things Noir Tease

mood: random
song: girlfriend




I would admit that this is my very first perfume set that I've ever purchased for myself in my whole entire life. Let me introduce, TEASE by Victoria Secret.

What made me ended up in getting them would be mainly because this perfume set comes with a black studded bag. Goshhh, that bag is just so eye catching when I firs saw it and that is when I decided to get that set no matter what. This set comes with a perfume, body lotion and a body roller.
Perfect in seductively black packaging, this eau de parfum was inspired by fun, flirty with a twist of juicy fruit and flirtatious flowers. Besides, TEASE is also based on black vanilla, frozen pear and blooming gardenia. I love the smell as it has a clean, fresh, not too sweet and sharp fragrance which gives out a classy and elegant feel.

I would prefer fragrances that are not too overpowering and sharp. Therefore, I have to say that Noir TEASE by Victoria Secret is perfectly my type of fragrance.

Body Shop Tea Tree Products

mood: random
song: i want it that way


Honestly, to tell you the truth I've NEVER used any tea tree based product before.
No doubt I had heard of it being really useful and effective on pimples, acne and blemishes.
UNTIL 
I started working in the bank.
My pimples pops up almost everyday, till they "lined up" on my forehead like some star chart.
=.=

I tried using cleanser from Neutrogena and Oxy. But unfortunately, it does not really work. Maybe it was due my stubborn pimples.
That really pisses me off. 

That is when i decided to try this Body Shop's range of products.

I bought their entire range of Tea Tree product. You may call me insane. LOL
Honestly, it was really effective after the first week of using.
My "star chart" on my forehead slowly reduced soon gone for good!

The main thing I LOVED about this product is that , it gives a cool minty sensation everytime u apply them on your face. It really did helps to reduce the oil on my T-Zone.

And
I ABSOLUTELY LOVES THE TEA TREE SCENT.
No doubt many hates them. But I really loves it!
Rate Cleansing ability: ★★★★★ 
Scent: ★★★★★ 
Effect: ★★★★★

Monster mouth 2014

mood: random
song:paparazzi 




This is my recent scribbles on my sis's face.
This time i tried to draw a more dramatic effect on her face by drawing an extra dramatic monster mouth make up on her face.

Kinda like the outcome of this make but I would stil want to improvise on the color of the lips to make it more realistic. Got to get maroon color soon to give realistic blood effect.
