Johnson's 24 Hour Lasting Moisture Body Lotion

I didn't shop that much when I was in Kuala Lumpur due to limited fund I had. I ran out of body lotion during the trip. So there was always a reason to shop. I went to the mall next to my hotel on the day I arrived.





I was interested in this lotion when I looked around in a Watson's shop and its Sales Promotion Girl approached me, hehe......
I picked the small size, because it's a new product for me. The price was cheap.

Back side


The texture is soft, not greasy at all. Quick to absorb by the skin. The smell is nice and refreshing.

How the lotion looks like

Wedding in Kuala Lumpur, part 2 (wedding dinner)

Here's part two of the ceremony.
When I arrived in the hotel after the morning ceremony, I decided to take a nap because I felt that I would be going to be sick, with the sore throat and everything.
My colleagues from Singapore, Jewell and Shri Omar, have arrived in KL but were having lunch when I had my nap. They were back to the room right after I woke up.

When we were getting ready for the dinner, I found out that Shri is fond of make up too! She brought a set of make up brush and a make up palette.... She did Jewell make up too. I really enjoyed watching her working on Jewell's face :)


My left eye was swollen, I didn't know why. When I woke up from my nap, it was just like that. I think it was my allergy to my contact lens. But hey.... I still look pretty, right ? hehe.....

Diane from LusciousLather.Etsy.Com sent me a message on Facebook when she saw this picture. She said I looked so beautiful and so happy, and it is a very good picture of me, shows of my wonderful bone structure and high cheekbones. Awww......

Lovely bride

I was put at a special table serving Malay food. So I'm safe. While other tables served Chinese food which contains pork.
A friend of the groom gave speech and photo slides of bride and groom alone and then photos of both of them were shown. The dinner accompanied by songs from duet of wedding singer who play instruments.
Half way of the dinner, Linda changed the dress. She wore red Shinese style dress. She looked amazing.

I'm happy for the couple!

Note on my outfit:
That shiny dark greenish grey jacket was bought when I was in Shanghai in November 2008.

Wedding in Kuala Lumpur, part 1

Here's the day! In Chinese tradition, they did a morning ceremony at the bride's place.
What they do is give challenges to the groom and his friends before the groom is allowed to see his bride. The challenges are like fun games.


Last night, I really couldn't decide which outfit I should wear for morning and evening events! Since Chinese likes red color, I decided to wear my pink beaded blouse with traditional sarong.

My niece's (kindergarten) farewell party

I was asked by my sister to give make up to her daughter for her dance performance at her kindergarten farewell ceremony.
My niece's name is Syahira, she will be five years old in August.

I once put her make up but at that time the look result was heavy on her. So for this occasion, I gave her lighter look but with pigmented color on eyes.
I chose carefully the make up for her so her baby skin won't be itchy. (I know I don't have special make up for kids, so I can only use my make up which made from natural ingredients)

For her face, I applied Everyday Mineral base: Medium Beige matte, and Finishing Dust.

On her cheeks was The Body Shop Solar Duo Blush (Radiant Bronze)



Lips:
The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15
Revlon ColorStay Lipcolor no. 232 (Sumptuous Sienna)

Eyes:
Aromaleigh Lip & Eye primer
Meow Friday the 13th eye collection: Spell
Meow Friday the 13th eye collection: Cursed
Black eye liner pencil
Revlon 3D Extreme Mascara in Black. Boy, she has long lashes!!


And that glitter was applied by her teacher when she arrived at the school. I didn't attend the ceremony because I had to do a chore.





Syahira and her brother, Fahreza

Syahira, when she was 7 months old.
How time pass by so fast!


And to our surprise, she received a trophy as the best student in her class. Yayyy...... We are so proud of you!
If only my father was still alive, he'd be proud too, knowing that the smart gene has been passed to the grandchildren. Lol.

My collection of The All Natural Face products

Just to want to show you what products of The All Natural Face that I'm having. Crystal, the owner, launches new products frequently. And as one of her consultants, I'd like to try the products by myself :)
Besides purchased the Get Green Started Kit which consists of samples of most of her products, I also have purchased these items recently:

NEW Vegan Cream Mineral Foundation Made With Age-Defying Argan Oil, medium beige warmer
What Crystal said:
The rich formula is made with face loving Jojoba and Argan Oil. No cheap filler oils here! Only top shelf oils are used! Also, the choice of the oils make it a non greasy formula:) It goes on like silk and just like my powder mineral foundation...it has that "can't even feel it" quality to it but has awesome coverage at the same time:) This foundation is available in all 51 shades of foundation as well:) The classy black case it comes in offers the flexibility of being able to change out the empty foundation tin and replace it with a refill one...making this eco-friendly as well:) The compact comes with a sponge applicator as well:)









Vegan Mousse Foundation Pot 5 gram jar, in medium beige warmer
What Crystal said:
This mousse is very light weight:) It appears darker than the color it will dry to when you first put it on. The formula contains vegetable glycerin so that once the mousse dries the glycerin keeps it on your face, keeps the moisture in your face, and protects against the environment:) It only takes a second or two to dry and once it does you will have the silky smooth feel you love about my powder foundation:) This formula also has great coverage. You wont even know you have makeup on it is so light...yet you will still have a flawless look:) 5 gram jar


This is how it looks like when applied on the skin

Swatch of Midas Concealer, Cream Foundation, and Mousse Foundation

Vegan Cream Concealer, Midas
What Crystal said:
This tube holds about .15 oz of concealer. Choose any color you'd like:)
Midas: Corrects dark circles under the eyes. Pick me up. Light golden hue.


Midas Concealer, Mousse Foundation, Mousse Blush

Vegan Mousse Blush Pots 5 Gram Jar, Dusky Rose
What Crystal said:
This mousse is very light weight:) It appears darker than the color it will dry to when you first put it on. A couple of dots of this is all you need:) Don't get scared when you put it on and it is bright bright red:) hehe...it will dry to a beautiful subtle shade...just give it a second or two:) The formula contains vegetable glycerin so that once the mousse dries the glycerin keeps it on your face, keeps the moisture in your face, and protects against the environment:) It only takes a second or two to dry and once it does you will have the silky smooth feel you love about my powder blush:)

This is my first experience to have mousse blush on. I thought it would be difficult to apply, but after some practice, I managed to get the hang of it. Just use the ringer finger for application. Remember, a little goes long the way.





Vegan Shea and Cocoa Butter Mini Lipstick Candied Peaches
Heavily pigmented candied peaches lipstick: ) Lucious lipstick made with Organic Shea Butter, Organic Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, and Candelilla Wax, oxides, mica....that's it! Smells nutty chocolaty: ) Very smooth texture with lasting color. Feels so good on. In a slim line mini lippie to carry everywhere: )


The packaging

Swatch of the lipstick

See me wearing Candied Peaches

100 % Organic Virgin Coconut Oil 2 ounce size
What Crystal said:
Lotion is mostly water that starts to evaporate as soon as you put it on. Oil, on the other hand, starts to sink in immediately. Coconut oil has a very low melting temperature so as soon as it hits your skin it starts to melt. Since this is organic and unrefined it smells like coconuts too:) Naturally beautiful. I use this to shave with and then before i get out of the shower I apply it all over my body:) Coconut oil is non-comedogenic, in other words it doesn't block pores. It is also an excellent hair conditioner. Use on hair overnight or apply pre-wash. Don't apply a lot...a little is all you need:) It is also anti inflammatory, anti bacterial, and anti fungal.


When I received the package, the form was in liquid. Now, it's in my fridge to help it solidified.

Ear problem reoccured

When I started traveling again in early May, I was worried due to my last trip that has caused me acute middle ear infection. It turned out the traveling was fine. I felt confidence. As long as I chew some candies during take off and landing, I'd be okay.
Then the traveling continues. I was out of town every week for 2-3 days!
I was not feeling well during the last trip to Surabaya last week. And on Monday (May 31) when I started to work in the office, I felt uneasiness in my left ear, and I had this headache too on the left side of my head.
I decided to see my ENT doctor in the evening after work. Then she said that the left ear drum is swelling and the right side is same but not as bad as the left.
Man, I was planning to swim last Sunday but somehow canceled. And I have another trip coming next week.
My doctor inserted two tiny cotton balls in my left ear and drop some liquid medication onto the cotton. It's supposed to be like a compress to sooth the ear drum. I need to put the ear drops 4 times a day. She prescribed me antibiotics and medicines and I to come back on Wednesday.

She asked me to exercise and to get fit. Flying when you are not fit can cause this kind of problem. And my sinusitis must be controlled too.

I have decided to cancel the trip to Singapore and Manila, and delegate this to my colleague.
