Foodpanda - Online Delivery Services ❤

When I was about to go out for dinner the other day, the rain came just right on the dot when I was about to leave. I decided to go for dinner with my friend at Sunway Pyramid and since the rain was damn heavy, I cut my intention and stayed at home. I know there's an online food delivery service in Malaysia which can help me to solve my problem - Foodpanda. (:

To those who don't know, Foodpanda serves to spread their services not only in Klang Valley but also to more cities with more restaurants and cuisines which definitely help the working adults to solve their problems especially they don't have the time to cook. I already started working a year and a half ago and seriously I never really have the time to cook despite busy schedules on weekends too. 

It's pretty simple to order your food through Foodpanda actually. I am going to show you some of the simple steps / instructions for you guys.


First of all, type www.foodpanda.my and register yourself if you haven't.


After that, fill up all your particular details and click 'Register'.


Next enter your city that you are staying now. The location I am staying is at Subang Jaya. So you can actually see from the photo above that Sunway - Subang Jaya - Puchong are categorized together. Don't worry about the city though. The main point would be the location. I am currently staying at USJ so type 'USJ 1 or USJ 2' or whichever is the correct location for you. After that click 'Find Food Now!'


You will see that there's 36 restaurants in USJ area from Wendy's, TGI Friday's, Tony Roma's, Taang Shifu, Italiannies just to name a few. Most of the restaurants are located at Sunway Pyramid or Empire Shopping Gallery since these two shopping malls are quite near to the place I stay. There are Hungry Hog, Big Chomp Burger and Chatime too which are located at SS15 are also part of the restaurants listed in the USJ area.

Since that day I was craving for TGI Friday's. I decided to browse through the list of food they serve for online delivery. There are a lot of food listed from appetizers, salad, soups, pasta, steaks and etc. I started to feel hungry while scrolling for food to order. :P You can order their food by clicking to this link: http://fridays.foodpanda.my/



I ordered Caesar Salad, California Club Sandwich and Buffalo Wings (6 pcs) since I was very hungry. It was pretty simple to order through Foodpanda webpage. Just click 'Add' to the food you want to order and your order would appear on the right (shown in the photo below).


There's a minimum delivery of RM15.00 and delivery fee of RM4.00 but that didn't bother me much as I know the food I wanted to order exceeded RM15.00 for sure. *wide grin* You can actually check the order before you proceed to checkout. The total bill only add to 6% of government tax.

After you click 'Proceed To Checkout', you need to fill up your details on the street and postcode on the place you are staying to ensure that the delivery man send the food safely to your house.



You can also choose the payment option if you have the voucher code. I clicked on 'Cash On Delivery'. You will only pay the cash once you have received the order on your address. Other than that. you can also select the loyalty card and enter the card number. Since I am a member of BCARD, so I filled up that section to entitle for BCARD points. (: After that, you can place the order now. It is pretty fast and simple, isn't it? *wide grin*


Successful order would appear as above. You would see the time of the delivery arrive at the house with the order number too.


You would then receive SMS and email that the meal would be delivered in an hour. (:


Overall experience
The food was delivered to my house about 5 minutes late because it was drizzling outside. Despite the drizzle, he still came all the way to deliver the food and apologized to me for being late. I paid the cash to him after I received the food. The food came with three boxes of TGI Friday's boxes and plastic bag with the name of the food written on top of each box. Cool!



I liked how they packed each of the food because wrapping the food with aluminium foil would maintain the freshness of the food and at the same time the food would not turn cold so fast. *thumbs up*

When I opened the California Club Sandwich, they separate the sandwich and the fries and placed them in two different aluminium foils.
 
California Club Sandwich - RM28.90

California Club Sandwich
 Mesquite smoked turkey breast, crispy beef bacon, turkey ham and Monterey Jack cheese on toasted ciabatta bread with tomatoes, shredded Romaine lettuce, guacamole and mayonnaise. Served with crispy fries  

When I tasted the crispy fries, it was still hot. *nom nom* The burger was soft and nice especially the turkey ham.



They even cut the sandwiches into half so that I could easily grab that with my own hands. Aww.. So sweet! (:

 Buffalo Wings (Single) 6 pcs - RM17.90

Buffalo Wings
Traditional upstate New York- style chicken wings marinated in our spicy sauce, then deep-fried. Served with crisp celery sticks and tangy Bleu Cheese dressing

Caesar Salad - RM19.90

Caesar Salad
Romaine lettuce piled high tossed with tangy Caesar dressing and garnished with croutons and freshly grated Parmesan cheese


There's a minimum delivery of RM15.00 and delivery fee of RM4.00 but that didn't bother me much as I know the food I wanted to order exceeded RM15.00 for sure. *wide grin* You can actually check the order before you proceed to checkout. 

The total bill only add to 6% of government tax. So I find it quite worth it as I do not have to pay for the service charge of 10% if I were to eat in the restaurant. Plus I can save some time looking for parking at Sunway Pyramid since it's always hard to look for parking space in the mall. I can also save money on petrol since I do not have to go all the way there just to have dinner at TGI Friday's at Sunway Pyramid. The delivery fee of RM4.00 is affordable for me as I already saved some of my time and money.

You might think that the above portion may look small but sorry it's big to the extent that I could not finish my Caesar salad at all. =( I decided to keep some of the salad for my breakfast on the next day. (At midst of having healthy lifestyle with healthy diet. Lolol! But ignore the sandwich and buffalo wings ok? :P)

Anyway ordering food through Foodpanda was a good experience for me as it was quite simple. Do you know that you can do pre-order first in case the shop was closed on that day itself? It's not a bad idea to online through Foodpanda after all. You will get to save a lot of time too if you and your colleagues choose to eat in the office without spending most of the time on the road just to go out for lunch. It's totally hassle-free once you have registered as the member. You will only look through the menu and decide what food you like to eat for lunch or dinner or tea time. Foodpanda is something that I would look forward to use more often in future. (:

You can either order via their website @ www.foodpanda.my or order your food via smartphone. To those who are interested, you can download their app here: http://www.foodpanda.my/contents/apps. (:

Have fun ordering via Foodpanda! *wide grin*

[Review] Beautymate Purifying & Hydrating Nano Toner and Mask ❤

Toner is always the step in my skincare regime that I won't skip even if I forget to apply moisturizer. Applying toner on my face after cleanser is always a must-to-do in my skincare regime. This is simply because toner is designed to cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores as we may not know whether the cleanser has thoroughly cleansed your face well. (: Anyway, I have tried several toners from different brand and to my surprise, some of the toners I use tend to make my skin really dry. So in the end, I choose to pass them to my friends who can really use the toners as I do not want to waste them by throwing them into the trash bin.

 Packaging from Natta Cosme

However, when I first encountered Beautymate Purifying & Hydrating Nano Toner thanks to Natta Cosme for sending it over to my house, I was simply amazed with the bright orange packaging and it stated on the bottle that, it is formulated to bright up the skin tone and increase the moisture balance. (: 


Seriously I can't wait to try and see how it works on my skin as stated on the bottle. So I put it to test almost four weeks. Other than that, you can also see that this toner also comes with a packet of Beautymate mask as well. They are so lovely! Thank you Natta Cosme! *wide grin*



"Extracted by Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Hydrolysed Pearl and Glycoproteins, Ginkyo Biloba Leaf Extract which helps to hydrate your skin and facilitate the metabolism which prepares fast of absorbing lotion. Beautymate Purifying & Hydrating Nano Toner is formulated with the natural mineral of hydrolyzed pearl can bright up the skin tone and balance the pH value, it makes the skin soften and smooth. Glycoproteins helps to increase the moisture balance in cuticle up to 15 hours or above" 


The instructions for applying toner is pretty simple. Remember always use a cotton pad to apply toner on your face as you can let the toner absorb into your skin well. Normally it is better to use it after your cleansed skin.


Pump out a few times of the toner from the bottle to moisten the cotton pad and stroke over face and neck in an upward motion until thoroughly absorbed. It's good to have pump for toner as we can control the amount of toner we wish to apply on the face. (:


Results after the application of the Beautymate Purifying & Hydrating Nano Toner, I can see the difference in my skin tone and I feel my skin has become smoother and softer. It feels good to have soft and smooth skin like a baby skin again. (:


I love the scent of the toner which is quite soothing when I applied it on my skin. The toner absorbs really fast into my skin. What I like the most about this toner that, it leaves soft and smooth feeling on my skin after the toner application. (:  

Moving on to Beautymate Purifying & Hydrating Nano Mask now. This Beautymate Purifying & Hydrating Nano Mask is a newly imported nano technology which combined with a close-fitting mask cutting. It can effectively release essence nutrients into skin cells to bring a new skin care experience.



Normally I will try to avoid putting mask on my face and scare all my readers here but just to share with you guys that this mask fits perfectly on my big face and in fact I love the cooling sensation on my face when the mask is applied on.


As from the results of the mask application, my face turned out to have some 'boink boink' feel especially on the cheeks. I also love the cooling sensation of the mask. At the same time I love how it hydrates my skin and does give any dry feeling to my skin especially on my nose (I tend to have drier skin especially on the nose area).

You can get both of the Beautymate Purifying Nano Toner and Mask at Natta Cosme website below:
Beautymate Purifying Hydrating Nano Toner (RM44.91)
Beautymate Purifying Hydrating Nano Mask - 7 pieces (RM33.21)

[Review] Play It! with bloop ❤

Holla readers! How's CNY going on? Mine was great despite the hot weather in Taiping. I had fun with my family members while I was in hometown. Did I tell you guys that I am no longer working in Manila anymore? I was so happy that I am finally back in Malaysia! Yay! I can finally spend more time with my family. :D 

Anyway, today I am happy to review another awesome nail sticker from bloop thanks to HiShop Malaysia. This nail sticker has two sizes which is for adult and kids. 


The one I received is kids sticker. Since it is suitable for kids,it is alcohol-free and fragrance free. Besides that, it is also non allergic to kids' skins and it is not suitable for child under 5 years old. Kids can now decorate their nails with pretty stickers instead of nail polish which takes time to dry when applied.


Let me show how it was applied on my nails. (: The steps of using this nail sticker are almost the same as the nail strip I have tried from bloop as well. You guys can check my link of my blog post on the nail strips here: http://janiceyeap.blogspot.com/2013/12/review-bloop-nail-strip.html.


This nail sticker comes with additional few pieces of stickers in case you need to decorate your nails. This nail sticker is transparent to your nail. So if you want to add some colours on your nails as the base coat, you can do so. But I prefer it to be transparent as I want my nails to look simple on my first day of work in Malaysia. (:

All you have to do is to choose the best strip size for each nail. Remove the sticker from the transparent film and place on the nail which is suitable for the strip that you have removed.


Then align and place the nail strip on to the nail where the round edge facing the cuticle.



Next, remember using a nail file to file off the excess strip in a downward motion.


And it's DONE! You can look at the overall of the nail stickers that I had place on my nails! Pretty right?


To remove it, dip the nails into warm water for 5 - 10 minutes and peel off the nail strips after that. You can remove any excess with bloop nail polish remover. (:


Review
I love this nail strip because it is fast and easy to use by just peeling off the sticker from the film. Another advantage is that there's no drying time which you don't have to worry that the sticker is ruined and this nail strip can last about 5 - 7 days. (: *wide grin* It's only available at RM9.90 at bloop website: http://www.bloop-bloop.com. or check out BLOOP on Facebook for more information: https://www.facebook.com/bloopinc.


My pretty nails! *wink*

Thank you HiShop Malaysia and bloop again for the pretty nail stickers! *wide grin*

Galaxy Life - Passport to Exclusive Deals! ❤

Already a Samsung S4 user for almost 6 months now. I was really happy when I received a Samsung S4 from my boss 6 months ago as a gift. I have heard thousands of comments on how Samsung smartphones have awesome features that other phones cannot do. What’s more when you are thrilled enough to know that Samsung has introduced an awesome app from Samsung itself.

I was actually fiddling with Google Store and trying to find some cool apps on my Samsung S4. Then I found Galaxy Life app and decided to download it. 


Galaxy Life app is an app which is created by Samsung to reward the Galaxy users to ensure our life is easier. Galaxy Life is the passport to amazing experiences, app recommendations and special privileges. Galaxy Life has a total of 7 pillars which is Live, Entertain, Learn, Play, Connect, Work and Surprise.


I was too excited when I was browsing through the app because there are so many things to look at. When I browsed the Play category, I found a super awesome deal of Escape Room. Honestly speaking, I have heard number of times on how awesome the Escape Room challenge and I have never really tried yet. Definitely this Escape Room deal would be a great deal for me. To those who don’t know, Escape Room game is a unique, intuitive and interactive experience where teams find mysterious clues based on various story lines to solve live puzzles and ultimately escape the room within 45 minutes.


I only have 60 minutes’ time to redeem once I clicked on it. I only redeemed the deal once I got there. It’s so SIMPLE because all I had to do was to show the merchant the deal and they would click the deal to signify that the offer had been redeemed after payment had been made. Another reason I love this app is that, NO upfront payment is required to purchase this deal beforehand. Sounds cool right? :D


I am so happy that I can finally try the Escape Room challenge! Yay! :D So we went in a group of 6 to try out the Escape Room challenge. 6 of us whom are Yuh Jiun, Yuh Jiun’s bf, Yukiko, Yumi, Yumi’s bf and I are in a group.


The entire place looked quite small to me. However when I got into one for the rooms, I never realised that it can actually lead us to many rooms and there are different types of games to be tried. So we actually tried the Pirate Ship challenge which the level of difficulty is 5 stars (the most difficult level other than The Slaughter House). There are three rooms in the Pirate Ship challenge. The room was quite dark and they provided us two torchlights per group in order for us to find clues to unlock the treasure boxes. 



However, luck wasn’t on our sides because we had no idea on how to unlock the rotational lock at the very last 10 seconds of the last treasure box. The final treasure box actually contained the key to the exit door of the challenge.

Group photo of us. (:

They took a shot of polaroid photo for us to bring home. Too bad we did not win this time. It’s ok though, we will come again for sure. :D Overall, it’s worth trying out the Escape Room for the first time. This is a challenge for me especially I can solve the complex puzzles and answering riddles based on the hints given together with my team mates. 
 



Anyway readers, to those who wish to try out the Escape Room deal from the Galaxy Life app, download it here: http://bit.ly/GALAXYlife. Explore the app and you will find a lot of fun and benefits inside. (:
