REVIEW ON KLAIRS MOCHI BB CUSHION PACT SPF 40 PA ++

The swept of Korean beauty wave with the creation of BB cushion makes application of makeup really easy even for a person with amateur makeup skill like me.  Honestly, I don't know how people can do their do their makeup looking so flawless when mine is always just streaky or patchy.  Thus, I just gave up with those foundations and face makeup until BB cushion arrived into my life.  Since then I am into cushion products.

Klairs Mochi BB Cushion pact SPF 40 PA++ ranked the first place in the Korean 2016 Glowpick apps which is by user voting.  This makeup item is something essential for being a convenient portable BB cushion in my makeup item.

This cute Mochi design is a collaboration between Klairs best seller Mochi BB and BETWEEN's signature Mochi.  I just can't help staring at such cutesy round cushion.  The cushion is perfect for Korean code 15,21, 23 and MAC NW20.

The mirror has a protective film so remember to remove it first.  The first ingredient is water based which is not typical of BB cream. It is great since water based BB cream tend to have lighter finish and not clogging to the pores.  There are brightening, hydrating and calming ingredients such as niacinamide, zinc oxide, centella asiatica, sodium hyaluronate, licorice extract, adenosine, vitamin c, aloe vera, grape extract and hibiscus extract.  There is some silicone and colouring to have some colour and smoothen the skin.

Here is the full ingredients:

Ingredients
Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Betaine, Titanium Dioxide, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Niacinamide, Polysorbate 60, Dimethicone, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Silica, Zinc Oxide, Isoamyl p-Methoxycinnamate, Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, Bentonite, Sodium Chloride, Yellow Oxide Of Iron, Red Oxide Of Iron, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Stearic Acid, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Black Oxide Of Iron, Chlorphenesin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance, Centella Asiatica Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Lic orice) Root Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Piper Methysticum Leaf/Root/Stem Extract, Adenosine, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Extract, Hibiscus Esculentus Fruit Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Arctium Lappa Root Extract, Hibiscus Mutabilis Flower Extract, Corchorus Olitorius Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera(Grape) callus culture Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Callus Culture Extract


Klairs Mochi BB cushion pact does have a transparent build in cap and one that you need to twist to open and to close it. This ensure that the cushion pact does not open itself during travelling and being hygienic which is great.  The cushion puff has the cute Mochi face as well.  I find it easy to apply on my face using the puff.  I just pat the product onto my face which is convenient.  It doesn't clogged my pores or cause more acne. It does have very faint flowery scent which disappeared upon application.

Klairs Mochi BB Cushion Pact has a semi matte texture with a slight glowy finish which covers my pores flawlessly. It lasted on my face for 8hours without the need to touch up. My nose area does have a slight shine by the fifth hours but it is nothing serious since it does not separate on my skin at all.  It naturally neutralise the redness on my skin which makes it great to cover the redness around my nose.

Overall, Klairs Mochi BB cushion pact is a great affordable BB cushion that covers pores and redness on the skin but still look like your natural skin.  The refill kit is cheap and affordable.

THE ART OF BUYING GIFTS AND GIFTING FOR NEW MOTHERS

Buying gifts for others is actually really difficult. I honestly think so because I always googled up on what to buy whenever there are special occasions..  This is even more true for baby showers because you just want to get your best friend who has recently become a mother and her baby something special, beautiful and memorable.

Of course it would be really awkward to give the same baby shoes in the same design as everyone else in the shower party because you don't really have much time to buy the gift at the stores yourself.  Besides, the thought of getting some common may shows that you are not valuing your friendship.

So, you tried to find some gifts because you wanted your friend to receive something unique and special.  Here are some suggestions that you could gift your friend in for a baby shower.

FOOD REVIEW ON JAPANESE NESTLE KIT KAT STRAWBERRY CHEESE CAKE FLAVOR (YOKOHAMA EDITION)

Hi food lovers,

If one go to Japan, 😊 one of the souvenir to bring home is all the unique Kit Kats.  There are many types of Kit Kat which include flavours such as mochi, soya sauce, sake, bake cheese, bake sweet potatoes, azuki beans and etc.

There are some flavours which is found only in certain prefectures which means it is really hard to find.  I was so excited when I got this Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) because it is food and chocolates.

Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) comes in a really pretty paper box.  Everything is written in Japanese.  There are 12 bite size bars inside the box.

The 12 bars are in plastic papers because it actually melted when I got it and luckily I could put it inside the fridge.  It also means that they use good chocolate since cheap chocolate don't melt with room temperature in my country (30 celcius) .  The size of bar is smaller than my Asian female palm so don't expect it to be large since I have small hands.  It just look huge on the photo.  There is the shape of the brand but it melted off so I don't know what on the chocolate bar.

Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) has the exterior of white chocolate. The interior wafer is the one made of strawberry flavour which is sweeter than the exterior white chocolate.  I think the combination really work out well since the sweetness is balance out since I don't really like anything too sweet but this is great.  Another thing, if you hate strawberry flavour then this is not for you.

There is also the QR behind the box which you can use to check out the other new flavours or for more information which is really great.

Overall, I do like Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) which is really a nice treat since it is something different than the Kit Kat we have here in Malaysia.  There is Sake flavour for those that love sake 😅.

REVIEW ON RESTAURANT AH SO BAH KUT TEH, KLANG, SELANGOR (NON HALAL)

Hi,

Today is food adventure in Klang 😊 . This is a non Halal place meaning that it serves pork.  Bah Kut Teh is a Malaysian Chinese dish that is really popular and only available in Malaysia.  So, Klang which is a district in Selangor is the most popular place for Bah Kut Teh.

So, here is a restaurant that serves Bah Kut Teh but of course this place is not the popular one that appears in travel books and television.  It is just a restaurant that I happened to just stop because I was lost for breakfast before going somewhere.

Restaurant Ah So Bah Kut Teh, Klang, Selangor, Malaysia.

Chinese tea

Ah So Bah Kut Teh, Klang, Selangor, Malaysia has  a simple interior.  One can see the kitchen and all the others tables once you have seated there. The round tables are made for Chinese that tend to come with a big families.  You can either choose to have individual drinks or Chinese tea. I chose Chinese tea because you can refill the hot water later.  The tea 'Tie Guan Yin'(mandarin) is those really cheap loose tea which isn't that good.

Bah Kut Teh comes in either dry or wet one. I prefer soupy stuff.  Bah Kut Teh is actually pork cooked in Herbal soup.  Eating it is to give more vigor and provide more revitalizing effect to the body that needs a lot of energy to work. It used to be food for people working as labourers in the harbour since you need to carry all those heavy stuff and work really hard.

Now, we eat it as part of giving more nourishment to the body.  This Bah Kut Teh comes with pork, some tofu skin and salad.  One do need to mention the parts that you want or do not want. I obviously do not eat the small or big intestine so I usually mentioned that I do not want it else your Bah Kut Teh is going to come with it.  The soup is a little more watery and tone down with probably less herbs.  The pork isn't particular delicious, soft or seasoned.  It isn't tender but I think it could be better if given more cooking time.  The amount of the ingredients VS the price are just okay which is not cheap nor too expensive.

This restaurant serves their Bah Kut Teh with the Yau char kuey or You Tiao Char Koi. Char Koi is the flour stick which is like the Chinese Donut.  People from Hong Kong usually eat it with porridge.  In Malaysia, the Chinese like to eat it with the Bah Kut Teh.  It was okay. It is not particular soft or particular crunchy.

As for the rice, they use lower quality of rice since I don't think there is particular fragrant smell coming from it and the grains are not that pretty.  It would be better if one can provide better medium grade rice that could entice their patrons to eat more than a simple one just to fill in their stomach.

Customer service is okay since I could speak Chinese.  They are really fast at picking order but your orders come after 30 minutes of waiting which is kind of slow for me.

Overall, it is just an okay place to eat Bah Kut Teh. I am not hating or loving it.


The rice, chinese tea, Bah Kut Teh(for two person) and the char koi cost RM50.  I think the price must have surely increased now with things increasing already.

FOOD REVIEW ON FREEZE DRIED DURIAN MUSANG KING

Hi,
I know adventurous people like you are out there waiting to try this wonderful fruit of South East Asia aka the King of Fruit or more known by the name Durian.

I hope no one actually fainted seeing the word Durian here. Yes, I love Durian XD and it is not stinky at all.  This is a fruit that either gather hates or likes. You can't get someone say it is okay.

Musang King Durian is to one of the Top quality of Durian and it is really expensive for the exquisite taste for those that love it.  The price is also different for there is demand for Musang King durian.  So, a person like will just make do with this Freeze Dried Durian Musang King (50g) which travelled to me without the smell that can choke people out.

Freeze Dried Durian Musang King comes in a secure packet without leaking of any Durian smell.  One just snip off the top and there will be a zip kind so that one can seal it back. There is no need to keep inside the fridge.

Freeze Dried Durian Musang King comes in a dried fruit kind.  If you just bite it, it will come across as really crunchy crackers but to get the most of the taste, one has to let it melt on the tongue. Just put the dried fruit inside the mouth and wait for it to melt.  It will taste like a melted Durian ice cream which is so good. I know people who hate Durian will faint at this too-good-too-to-be-true tasty fruit but it is good.  The smell is not like those artificial durian ice cream or those durian sweets.  This is really nice and the smell is still strong even when it is in dried form.


Freeze Dried Durian Musang King is imported into Brunei and Singapore so it must be of highest quality to do so.  There is also certification from Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (Mesti) and pass GMP 1 from the Minister of Health of Malaysia.

Overall, I do highly recommend Freeze Dried Durian Musang King if you couldn't get the fresh Musang King or just wanted something to eat during travel but do not want to disturb people with the smell. It is great as gift too. I haven't tasted the fresh Musang King because it is too expensive for my wallet.
