REVIEW ON CUBECRATE NOVEMBER 2016-WORKING DESK SPACE

November month Cubecrate brought to me a surprise box 😍 again.  It is extra special since it is my birthday month and I am really sorry for the postman to deliver it on a raining day😭 . I thank you Mr.Postman for your dedication to deliver my box despite such bad weather.

Normally, I would be having a giveaway but I don't think I could make it this year for many reasons.  So without further bla bla bla about my life, here is what is inside the box.

This month theme is working desk space💓

Overall, I love what is inside the box but the box does look smaller this month.😋 It would be nice if the candle is full size instead of a sample because who doesn't love a long spa like experience?

REVIEW ON DEMETER FRAGRANCE LIBRARY NY MOOMIN PERFUME GEL CUSHION IN ICELANDIC AURORA

😊 How are you? I heard that some places have begin to snow. I hope that it is not too cold?

As for me in Malaysia, it is the end of the year with lots of rains only if it isn't flooded 💓. The temperature is just nice when staying indoors.

Also, it is also beginning to feel like Christmas with year end sales going on😃.  If you do follow Korean beauty trends, BB cushion is not something new.  With many Top western beauty brands jumping into the Korean cushion bandwagon, I find that one unique cushion product is this Demeter Fragrance Library NY Gel Perfume Moomin gel cushion perfume. 

I was lucky to win the Demeter Fragrance Library NY Gel Perfume Moomin gel cushion perfume in Icelandic Aurora which is so cute from 0.8L . It is a website which social editor's write their honest reviews on social media about their experience. As long you have a Facebook account or Instagram account, you can be their social editor😀

I don't get any special privilege even when I am a blogger 😅.  So let's jump into review about this Demeter Fragrance library NY Gel Perfume Moomin gel cushion perfume in Icelandic Aurora.

First of all,  Demeter is a perfume company from US. Their perfume are really nice and unique.
So combined with the popularity of cushion makeup products, Demeter decided to come up with cushion gel perfume gel.  So here is the Moomin cute character on it.  There are two seasons.  This one I have here is the Moomin character in Icelandic Aurora 😍.  Moomin is stamp on the outside of the case so it doesn't comes off easily.

The Demeter Fragrance Library NY Gel Perfume Moomin gel cushion perfume is like a mini cushion the size not bigger than my palm making it easy to carry it around.  The case is made from strong plastic and it is really light to carry for easy touch up of perfume😍. No one likes to carry the whole bottle of perfume right?

The perfume is in form of gel inside the cushion.  The Icelandic Aurora scent comes in light blue cushion.  Inside the cushion, there is a mini puff the width of my two fingers😊.  It doesn't have a mirror and in its place, there is a sticker of the Moomin family members.


Demeter Fragrance Library NY Gel Perfume Moomin gel cushion perfume in Icelandic Aurora smells of fresh wash linen but I guess everyone will have different views on scent since scent is very personal.  The smells isn't strong and it does have few notes.  I find it does last about 2 hours on me.  The smell disappeared once it reaches 3 hours of exposure.  The hours of wear can also depends on your skin and the weather.

Make sure to not leave the perfume in hot places as it will change the smell.  I think it is cool concept since no one will notice that I am actually applying perfume.  People will notice if I am carry atomiser, trying to spray perfume and the sprayed perfume gets everywhere 😖.

The sachets I have here are the refills in different type of scent.

The one notes scents are
👶baby powder
🍞white musk
🍊fizzy navel
🌸sweet baby
👕clean soap.
These are available in form of bottled perfume.

The other three scents are perfume or par fum which last longer.  These are only available in the cushion case.
💙Moomin character (Icelandic Aurora )
💓Moomin papax moomin mama (spicy floral)
💥Snokmaiden (sweet citrus) 

Overall,  Demeter Fragrance Library NY Gel Perfume Moomin gel cushion perfume is sure an interesting concept, suitable for those on the go and if you don't like carrying a heavy perfume bottle for touch up.  Just make sure not to confuse this cutie pie with the cushion for face😍








Product retails for
Demeter Fragrance Library NY Gel Perfume Moomin gel cushion perfume 2.5g USD12.2 (testerkorea request item)

For more information, please visit official Demeter Korea website. Product is won from  0.8L. However, the opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

REVIEW ON TEFAL MANUAL CHOPPER

I think most of the time for Asian cooking is spend on cutting onions, garlic and also chilies 😖.  It is really a hassle and sometimes I just wish I can dump the whole big chunk of onions or garlic into the wok. Wok is Asian 5 in 1 cooking utensils. Wiki mentioned it as versatile round bottom cooking vessel.

So, when I received this in my Box of Joy 😍I was so excited to try if this Tefal Manual Chopper could really chop stuff since someone told me that it is useless😟. Don't tell me to use my only blender for meat and for my vegetables because I won't 😅

Here is a review on Tefal Manual Chopper.

Wow, blended into minced meat 😲

Tefal Manual Chopper claims that It chop food items in 5seconds. 😬 Only if you can pull it fast enough in 5 seconds. If you take a break like me, it is going to be more than 5 seconds. I use it actually to make minced meat.  The chopper knife is really sharp so becareful when handling. I do find that the plastic made from good quality and it is easy to scoop out my cooking ingredients from it. Washing it in also easy.

Tefal Manual Chopper really cut down  my cooking time because it can make minced fish meat way more faster than I chop it manually😲. By manual labour with knife, it takes me an hours and I smelt like rotten fish after that.  With Tefal Manual Chopper, I just put the cleaned up fish into the chopper, close the lid and pull the string for about 10 times until it becomes minced meat. The food also taste better with this manual chopper than in blended since it does not heat up.  Blender tend to 'heat' up the food so it doesn't taste as good as chopped with Tefal Manual Chopper.

Also beware of ones that look like this but is not even able to cut onions.  Good Tefal Manual Chopper is even able to chop fish meat into minced one so that is the good quality of product for you. Also it is so good that it doesn't use electricity which is really good for wanting to save up on bills.💓

So, overall I think this is a great products if you are constantly looking for affordable manual chopper that does it job.  Indeed a handy product to have.

PETRONAS DEEPAVALI 2016

Happy Deepavali,

It has been some time since I watch some really great web-film and I think this year Petronas came out with an amazing video depicting the stereotype that we have of others.






It is easy to judge others by the appearance without seeking the true reason.  Here is a video about Muniandy and his friend.  Can they escape the misjudgement?





In light of the Deepavali celebration, let us Malaysians learn to respect each others differences and embrace our similarities.  Let the light shines within us, respect each other as individuality and as Malaysians. Let the goodness guide us as Malaysians towards greater harmony can be achieved through greater understanding and compassion.
