Season of giving with L'occitane

Let's celebrate and welcome 2016 with little gift to ourselves. Having a beautiful and well hydrated skin could be one of the gift that we give to our body. Try L'occitane Shea Butter Melting Honey collection and shea face collection. Known for their quality and expertise on skin, L'occitane will launch this gorgeous collection in January 2016! 

The Shea Butter Melting Honey collection is a nourishing Limited Edition body care line, created from a unique blend of Shea Butter and an organic, rare lavender honey. A fusion of two superfoods for the skin brings protective and skin-softening benefits, and also a luxurious pampering session for your skin.


My favourite hand cream ever!

Nourishing, protecting and repairing – the benefits of Shea Butter go beyond the body, and is also able to provide the absolute defense for the face. L’OCCITANE introduces three new protective Shea Butter face care products which are perfect for the dry and sensitive skin.

Apart from gifting myself this wonderful bundle, I believe in giving to others as well. We are blessed to be a blessing, and together with L'occitane, I am hoping for your support to help our visually handicapped friends. 

L’OCCITANE will be selling Limited Edition 2016 Shea Butter tote bags ($20) at all L’OCCITANE stores in Singapore, and all profits from the sale of our tote bags will be donated to the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped.

Each tote bag includes a short quote from our visually handicapped friends, which they share about their struggles and dreams. Every purchase of the tote bag will entitle you to a lucky draw chance to win a pair of tickets to ‘NOX - Dine in the Dark’ (worth $208).

Let's start the season of giving!

Our first Xmas 2015 party in Auckland!

This place is definitely merrier when December has arrived!
Feast after feast, prezzie exchange, and get together seems so easy to arrange, I am loving the feeling of Christmas :)

We had our first Christmas party weeks ago at one of our friend's house. It was a blast, kiddos playing happily except when it comes to prezzie exchange time. He turned bad mood in a click, and in koala mode on me. 

Nemplok aje man ni si Ethan, pake acara merem pura pura tidur lagi. LOL - kayaknya logicnya tuh, if I just close my eyes, everything will be ok. Andei idup begitu tong, hahaha.  

After few moment, he finally start opening his eyes - without moving his sitting position tho. I would say this is one of the cutest moment of him! 

Ini mengapa ya dia ga mo turun sama sekali dong, beneran nemplok pol. Dan hari itu gw pake stressed jeans yang rerombengan, kl berlutut lama lama, gw takut serat jenas yang di lutut putus euy. Teteup ya mak nye? hahaha.

Have a great December guys, it's 12 more sleeps to the Christmas day!

Watson's revamped!

I think everyone in my circle knows that Watsons is always my go-to place whenever I'm in Ngee Ann City. I was feeling a lil gutted not to be able to attend the event sometimes ago. I really want to see the transformation! The 7,000sqf outlet has undergone a top-to-toe transformation, presenting not just refreshed aesthetics but an enhanced browsing journey across all product categories.

As the market leader in this category, Watsons at Ngee Ann City features a Cosmetics & Nail Bar Zone in sleek black hues with many popular brand counters that are complemented with playtop spaces. Do look out for new and exclusive brands including Australis, Beauty UK and newly launched Wet & Wild. In addition, a vibrant nail bar will also be a mainstay, where manicurists will be available at scheduled times to provide nail services. OMG! Aren't you excited already? The next moment I landed back in Singapore, I will march my way to there!

Watsons definitely know their customer, because with more customers paying great attention to their hair, the Hair Care Zone takes on a new trendy look to allow customers to easily search for their favourite and the trendiest hair products. Let your hair soak up all the goodness from Watson’s latest exclusive hair care brands – Revlon Hits (from the U.S), Revlon Butter Cream (from the U.S), Green Grapy (from Korea), Valmona (from Korea), and All Nature (from Bulgaria).

Skincare lovers will be thrilled by the new line of treatment-based ranges exclusively introduced at this store – Phytocean (from France), Dr. Ci;Labo (from Japan), Labo Labo (from Japan), Manuka Doctor (from Australia), Physiogel CR Cream (from Germany), Faith in Face (from Korea), plus Sampar, a new brand from France. C'mon ladies, take your basket! :)

For wellness needs, one should make a beeline for the Health Corner, a wellbeing zone with pharmacy services including consultation led by the 2015 Singapore’s Community Pharmacist of the Year Award* winner, Ms Chung Wing Lam. A dedicated space devoted to the wellness range has been crafted for convenient browsing and trial of various health devices and mobility aids such as wheelchairs and walking sticks. 

How awesome is that? Very!

Weekend kami :)

Living in Auckland is definitely a different kind of lifestyle compare to Singapore. It is true that shop closes at 5pm, only few like The warehouse and K-mart open pretty late for New Zealand standard. Jadi, ente weekend ngapain aje dong? 

Biasanya yah, kami pergi hunting tempat tempat makan enak dan lokasi nongkrong yang enak. Hare gene masi nongkrong? Ya eyaalaaah! Ihiy, cuman kl dl nongkrong si kfc paket hemat, sekarang kita maen nya ke Ponsonby Central, bikin #OOTD ala ala fashion blogger..

Ato ga biar ke emak emak-an, kita maen nya di pantai ngubek ngubek cari kerang buat dimasak, ato ga maen ke rumah orang. Tapi itu juga ga saban minggu ding, kebetulan itu weekend kmrn aje :p

Nanti kalo hawa males da ilang sikit, gw bikin guide on where to go on weekend pas di Auckland ah :) Ini hawa males belon mabur juga neh, gimana se.

Anyhoo..sekarang kan uda masuk December yah, hawa hawa xmas tuh uda kentel bener ni di atmosphere kiwi ini. Tapi mereka lebih heboh ke gift exchange, xmas dinner, get together dibanding hiasan hiasannya. Kalaaaah jauh ma SG kalo soal cantik cantikan natal. Dan gw, masi menjiwai kiasu-ism - kmrn itu gw beli pohon natal dan hiasannya..akhirnya, pohon natal pertama kita naek juga. 

Dapet nya good bargain banget deh, beli pas sample sale di kantor gw (btw, gw kerja di salah satu the biggest retail company di new zealand) dan sering bener sample sale! Jangan ditanya harga barang2 yg gw dapet, soalnya miring pol! Pas gw bilang ke nyokap gw, reaksinya " masak sih ca? Di pasar kopro aja ga dapet segitu" hahahaha..tau dong anceran harganya berapa.

Bodo amat dah ya, yang penting kl gw pake, ga bakalan ada yang nyangka itu baju lebih murah drpd kopro. Hahaha - mental murahan abis ya percakapan gw kali ini - tapi kl bahasa kerennya " Perks of the job " ihiy. Dan kenapa ya, yang namanya weekend tu cepet bener lewatnya..tau tau da senen lagi.

Biasanya kalian weekend ngapain?

Auckland Guide: Burger Burger @ Ponsonby Central

Being a newbie in Auckland has it's advantages! For me, i am giving myself an excuse to dine out weekly " in order " to have something new to share about great spot and food in Auckland. This time round, it's Burger burger at Ponsonby central.

Located in one of the prime location at the heart of Auckland, Ponsonby Central is definitely a must place to go for weekend brunch with family, friends, or alone (why not?). The place has gorgeous selection of restaurant to choose from, find out more about the restaurant here.

My date for the day was Sharon, we were strolling around to find a right spot for our catch up session, and because it was a peak Saturday brunch time (and raining; gosh, what a timing) - all places mostly are occupied, or not quite what we want to sit at. Then Sharon was like having a light bulb moment of Burger Burger.  Okie dokie, off we go in search of the resto.

Greeted by a very cheerful and helpful lady, and bunch of friendly kitchen staff as well - we just got our catch up spot. I decided to get a fish bunnuce (bun lettuce, geddit?), beef on bun for Sharon, kumara fries, coffee for myself and sparkling drink for Sharon.  The food was awesome, affordable $20ish per person, and everything was just nice. Although I am not very impressed of eating a fish with bunch of lettuce wrapped on at first, but i guess it's a very very good option for carb free diet.

It felt so good to have a few hours off " mommy duty" to just be with girl friend and sharing about everything. Having to move to Auckland worries me in  terms of getting new friends. I met Sharon at my current work place, it was really just a quick hi and bye as we were swamped by our work and stuff - then in the first 2 weeks i joined the company, Sharon left for next adventure. Thank goodness for whatsapp and social media, we are back catching up over food, coffee and more coffee.

Back to the location, do visit this place if you have a day or more to spend in Auckland city. It's worth it :D

Long Weekend!

Gosh, This post was drafted during the labour day holiday and just happened to sit still in my draft and " poof!"  in November we are. Goodness, time does fly, ey?

Anyhoo, I jsut want to share my #OOTD on that awesome long weekend. Although, I always have my Monday off - I still loving the mood of everyone during long weekend. It's like you have 2 Fridays in a week :)

Wearing Zara Trench coat, tops, and legging - pair it up with Wakai platform :)
Pushing lil one in Phil & Ted buggy for a our stroll in the city.

And also, just a quick update - Life in Auckland is finally absorbing well in me. A little unhappiness here and there, but I finally start to think that this place might the next home for us. If you think you'll be interested to read more on my Auckland guide in this blog, comment up and let me know what would you like to know :)

Another moment for me to realize that GOD is so GOOD.
Jadi beberapa minggu ini, gw totally shut myself down dari semuanya, I stop being creative, ga mood masak, ga mood nge blog(apalagi ini ye), I just don't feel like doing anything. Kalo bisa, I would rather ngelingker di ranjang, sambil nontonin Harvey Specter. ihiy. Trus gw kepikriannya tuh, balik SG - I want to go back to my life di SG. Gw lupa what was the reason kita keluar dr SG dan pindah ke NZ and I hated my NZ life. Gw berasa I am supposed to be a better me disini, my life, my blog, my career. Tapi kenyataannya, ga gitu - dan gw manusia ambisius ini, stress sendiri. Then, I start asking " I want YOU to answer, tell me that the choice we made are the best " - dan dong, the next moment pas di gereja, pastor gw blg " Hey someone, when God tell Abraham to go, He asked him to believe the unseen future He set for him. It is going to be a same theme but different stories for you."
Amen to that. untung dijawab ye, kl enga - masi ga nge blog juga gw. hahahaha.

Thank u Pamela for your kind words and the soothing encouragement, dan Felicia yang blak blak an abis pointed out my problem, dan ya emang iya bener banget!! Aku finally feel better!

Ini gw kalo OOTD kok ya bingung mo bergaya gimana yah? nya hasilnya bagus cakep kayak fashion blogger nge top gitu..cuman susah aje. Ide dong, gimana ini?

OOTD: Casual in Black

It's gloomy Sunday afternoon here in Auckland, and I feel nothing but to sneak into my casual sweater..blame the weather! ha! 

Black is always my " go - to " outfit whenever I don't feel like doing dress up, it is a safe outfit color to run errands or just stroll around with the family. I love the slimming effect as well :) -> this might be the real reason for me wearing black! LOL

I got this sweater from The Warehouse, pair it with Giordano jeans and Charles & Keith heels. Do you think the heels might be the pump of the look, as the other 2 pieces are basic?
I am new to this OOTD kind a thing, so do drop me your comments and input on how to make a better OOTD :)

Thank you very much!

Btw, any black outfit lovers in the house? raise your hand!

Aku rasanya sedikit depresi..

Waktu sebelon kita pindah kemari, gw tuh ada google blog blog orang tentang " living in Auckland ". Trus gw ketemu satu blog nya orang UK, dia bilang " Auckland could depress you in a way I cannot explain ", dan di blog nya dia bilang " everything is beautiful, but there is something about this city that depress me". Waktu gw baca gitu, gw bingung sih...mang bisa apa? sesuatu yg cantik, trus orang orang ramah bikin depresi, tapi eh ternyata..IYA LOH, sodara sodara. OMG dah, gw ga tau kenapa..the last 1 month gw berasa lelah mental aja, cape jiwa, dan kl ditanya ga tau! Bang Arip juga ga membantu abis, jawabnya cuman " You'll be ok, this is what they call - settling down - " Fine, very helpful. 

Gw kayak belakangan berasa I am not myself at all, dan ga ada yg bisa diajak ngomong I said, bang Arip think this is normal, dan dia lebih focus maen clash of clan ato ga chatting ma temen dia di SG. Jadinya gw most of the night abis tidurin Ethan, kalo kita ga nonton some movie di rumah, gw cuman Pinterest-an or baca 9gag. halah banget deh ceritanya. Waktu mo nulis ini, gw rada dilema gitu..should I keep it to myself, ato just share it up, sapa tau ada yang lagi mo pindah ke nz dan kebetulan baca ini, jadinya bisa a little heads up aja buat what's coming. 

Ada yang sharing the same experience kek gw ga? Kalo ada share up dong, gw tried to go crazy in cooking supaya gw ga mikir apa pun, and just focus in cooking. It helps for a while, tapi ya udah..balik lagi ke square 1. Gw juga go hard core di gardening, tp taneman gw tumbuh..dan bingung gw mo diapain lagi. T_T

Ga lucu banget kan feeling shit saban hari, hahaha.
