[Beauty Review] Mary Kay All-New Botanical Effects® Range ❤

A few weeks ago, I received a set of products from Mary Kay which I have been wanting to try out. To those who read my blog, I am sure you know that I reviewed a few products from Mary Kay before and by far I have to admit that their products are really up to my expectation. This time I am really lucky to have the opportunity to try out the new Botanical Effects® Skin Care range. 

Many of my friends are aware that I am a huge fan of beauty products especially skin care. I put on minimal makeup to work or events most of the time. So the key to great and flawless skin is to have proper skin care. I have tried using the old packaging of Botanical Effects and when I opened this, I was more than happy to try them out especially their products contain fruit and plant extracts i.e Dragon Fruit and Aloe Vera. Botanical Effects® range delivers a wealth of essential benefits for fresher and healthier-looking skin.

Have You Done Your Shopping @ ezbuy? ❤

I am a huge fan of online shopping and I am pretty sure that most of us are especially the girls out there. *winkz* Online shopping has been bringing so much convenience for me ever since I started working. However, the thing about global online shopping is that there's one more thing you have to worry is the shipment.

Most of you know that Taobao is a Chinese website for online shopping similar to eBay, Amazon and Rakuten that is operated in China. Taboo facilitates consumer-to-consumer retail by providing a platform for small businesses and individual entrepreneurs to open online stores that mainly cater to consumers in Chinese-speaking regions (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) and also abroad.

Penang 3D Trick Art Museum ❤

A few weeks ago, I have decided to drop by Penang to visit this place which I have been wanting to go for so long. First of all, I travel to Penang almost every month and most of the time I only travel there for work. So I do not have much time to explore Penang since I spend most of my time meeting my clients in Penang. 

Since mummy is free on that day itself (it's a weekend anyway), I decided to tag her along to this Penang 3D Trick Art Museum which is located at Georgetown. 


If you are not familiar with Penang roads (like me), I would suggest to you to use Waze to get into this location. For the parking wise, it's kind of hard to get parking around there. So I would suggest to you to park at Union building which only takes 5 minutes to the museum.

[Beauty Review] Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick ❤

Do you know that lipstick can instantly make your day better? Anybody agrees with me on this? Women have always worn lipstick to make themselves more attractive, from ancient times to now. Lipstick draws attention to the lips and makes them stand out, thus adding to a woman’s overall attractiveness.

Today I will be taking the opportunity to review the new Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick. I used to hate applying lipstick but now, I have been adding more and more colours into my lipstick collection. I received a total of 4 shades of Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick which are Rich Truffle, Mauve Moment, Midnight Red and Poppy Please out of 8 shades. The rest of the shades are Bashful You, Powerful Pink, Always Apricot and Crushed Berry.

An Inspiring Story about Devalagan Muthalagan ❤

Hello readers! What is it like, growing up being a little different than everyone else? This certainly rings true for Devalagan Muthalagan. Today, he is 23 years old and is actively pursuing his dream. However, 2 years ago, Devalagan thought this dream would not materialise and it would remain a ‘daydream’. Devalagan was born with Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate (commonly known as CLP), which required multiple operations.

What is Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate (CLP)? 
Cleft lip and palate also known as orofacial cleft is a group of conditions that include cleft lip (CL), cleft palate (CP) and both together (CLP). A cleft lip contains an opening in the upper lip that may extend into the nose. The opening may be on one side, both sides or in the middle. A left palate is when the roof of the mouth contains an opening into the nose. These disorders can result in feeding problems, speech problems, hear problems and frequent ear infections. [1]
Cleft lip and palate are the result of tissues of the face not joining properly during development. As such, they are a type of birth defects. The cause is unknown in most cases. [1]
As for unilateral cleft lip/palate, it affects only one side. It may be fairly minor (appearing as a small nick in the lip); extensive involving the lip, alveolus (dental ridge), and palate (roof of the mouth); or at a level between these two extremes. Most often, unilateral cleft lip also affects the nose. The cleft lip’s separated muscles pull with an asymmetrical tension against the nostril on the cleft side, causing it to become larger with a more horizontal nostril as well. This pull also acts to shorten the central column of nose cartilage dividing the nostrils, causing the nose to be lower than usual. [2]

Devalagan underwent operations to repair his cleft lip and palate when he was 3 and 6 months old.  However, due to financial constraints, he missed at least 6 other stages of operations to repair his condition completely. During this period, he constantly struggled with negative thoughts and friends around him constantly teased him sumbing (cleft lip in Malay). It doesn’t matter whether he won a price at the poem reciting competition or became the president of a club in school. Many did not look past the little notch that remained on his lip. He did not allow this to hinder his spirit eventually.

He excelled in his studies and won a full scholarship from Public Service Department to study medicine at the International Medical University (IMU). 

Devalagan with his classmates
In year 2014, he met with the medical experts from Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur. He shared his financial concerns and his doctor advised him to apply for the Khazanah-IHH Healthcare Fund. He actually succeeded  in getting the aid and completed his final operation in August. The best part of all, he graduates as a doctor in October.

A step closer to his dream of becoming a surgeon! 
What can we learn from the story is that no matter whatever obstacles you have faced, it should not dampen your spirit. This is a truly inspiring story that one should follow.
