形象顾问 Bkay Nair Resources

Last week, I was invited to a soft launch party of an image consultant firm, Bkay Nair Resources (BNR) in Temptation Kitchen and Bar, Bukit Bintang.



At the registration counter, I was greeted by Bkay. To my surprise, she is such a gorgeous and confident Indian woman I ever met .

  
All media guests were being served with buffet. Look at my plate, I just took a bit as I want to leave some empty spaces in my stomach for another event later. Am I eating a lot recently? Well, I have no worry about it because Bkay is an expert in grooming for woman regardless the woman is short /fat or ugly. Continue to read my post if you wish to know more about her!


When almost every guest arrived, Bkay started to give us the opening speech about herself and her new launch company. Some may find her familiar as she is Miss India Tourism 2007/2008 and Miss Malaysia India Global 2008/2009. Bkay is a trained and certified groomer and has gained her experience through practical training durng her pageant days, acting lessons from top notch Malaysian acting coaches, grooming advices from celebrity stylists and make up artists.

She has done over four films including Ratu The Movie, Raya Tak Jadi, Bujang Terlajak and Ngorat in just two years. She also plays key roles in various TV series including Dewa Cinta, Gerak Khas, Musim Kirana and Suara Banduan. Sha has also being featured in Mstar, Berita Harian, Utusan Malaysia, URTV and Media Hiburan. Not only that, she has appeared on RTM, TV3, NTV 7 and Astro as well.



Following after this was fashion showcase. These floral summer dress was designed by Nila Palacious, an expert in Latin fashion.


During the soft launch, we were shown how to put on a nice make up by Malaysian famous makeup artist. He has more than 20 years of experience as an make up artist.

Have a sneak peek on his make up box! There was a lot of foundation and makeup bases!

 This was the final outcome from his masterpiece of artwork!


Bkay concluded that first impression matter. Your appearance, hair, wardrobe, grooming and make up are important as your smile. When you project an image of confidence, you are more likely to succeed in both business and social relationships. I was totally agree with her point.

In Bkay Nair Resources, I believe she can help you do just that.

食物述评:Foodpanda与部落客们齐聚O'Briens一同开斋

Foodpanda kicks off Ramadhan with bloggers in O'Briens I was recently treated to mouth-watering experience with foodpanda from O'Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe at its Midvalley Megamall outlet, in conjunction with Ramadan which is just around the corner. O'Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe is just located beside Jusco/ Aeon at the ground floor which is easy to find.


It was my first time to dine in here. I can tell you that I am not the person who will go for bread/sandwiches in a cafe for a meal as I think what is so different with my own made sandwiches at home compared with the one selling in the shop? After trying O'Briens Irish sandwiches, I found that I was wrong! First and foremost, I will make a short introduction about their shop.

O'Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe is a highly branded lifestyle chain cafe, well known for hand-cut sandwiches, freshly toasted wraps and soups. O'Briens uses only natural and premium ingredients and also sugar-free bread to prepare sandwiches as they believe customer deserves only the best.
A bunch of bloggers in the O'briens Irish Sandwich Cafe
Their crew is busy preparing the sandwiches for our food tasting session/dinner
The very first dish that we tasted was O'Briens Chicken Tripledecker. All of us at the table was happy and satisfy with this sandwich. The chicken crisp is crispy and tasty! I will recommend you all to order this when you are here for dining.

 
O'Briens Chicken Tripledecker  RM18.80 (recommended)
 Ingredients: Toostie with chicken& chicken crisp, lettuce, cheddar cheese, red onion, coleslaw and tomato.

Second dish that we tasted was Chicken Slice and Cheddar Cheese on Shambo. One can opt for this if they do not like heavy tasted or baked meat.
Chicken Slice and Cheddar Cheese on Shambo RM 15.80 (recommended)
  Ingredients: Toostie with fresh tomato, lettuce, red onion and honey mustard mayonnaise.


 The menu in O'Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe was customized to satisfy every customer's needs. For non-meat eater/vegetarian, Sundried Tomato on Hot Ciabatta is always the best choice. However, this is not my favourite dish here perhaps I do not like the taste of basil pesto.
Sundried Tomato on Hot Ciabatta RM 15.80
Ingredients: Toostie with sundried tomato, fresh tomato, red onion, mozzarella cheese, roasted vegetables and basil pesto .

The soup came after we finished the first 3 dishes recommended by the restaurant. The soup did not become lumpy after it cold. I love mushroom soup and like to dip it with garlic bread!


During the blogger tasting event, everyone of us was allowed to order a drink. Coffee drinkers will delight on their coffee selection as O'Briens premium coffee are freshly ground and brewed in store with the coffee blend mixed in the style of the very finest Italian master roasters. I am not a coffee drinker, thus I ordered chocolate drink for him and ice lemon tea (in can) for myself to quench our thirst.

Hot Chocolate with Marshmallow
 What's more, non-coffee drinkers can enjoy specialty teas, fresh fruit juices and refreshing and iced drinks.


 

My stomach was full after feeding it with all the exquisite sandwiches. After all, I just got to know that the main dish for the event was this- Curry Chicken Mayo Sandwich. By the time, I can not take in anymore food.


Curry Chicken Mayo Sandwich with Cashew Nut and Grapes RM 13.50
Ingredients: Curry chicken mayonnaise, cashew nut and grapes, cucumber, mixed leaves.

During Ramadhan month, O'Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe will be selling Curry Chicken Mayo Sandwich with Cashew Nut and Grapes and ice lemon tea at RM 16 per set. A la carte for RM 13.50.





Last but not least, thanks to foodpanda to organize the food tasting event for bloggers. I am quite enjoying the food as well as making some new blogger friends :)

电影述评:贪心鬼见鬼首映礼

Movie Review:Greedy Ghost Gala Premiere
贪心鬼见鬼会场图片:

   首映礼会场:主持人李欣怡正在派礼物呢!其实是问答环节啦!观众是看到礼物,抢着要回答的哦!



平时只能在荧幕看到的演员,李国煌,康康,袁顺成,辉哥和刘子宣现都在于我们近距离接触!喜剧演员一来就给观众几个笑弹,幽默十足!

    会场所准备的食物,我只吃到少少,真的来不及吃哦!所以现在我肚子都蛮饿的咯!

别人1张戏票,我有4张呢!哈哈哈!

 
在戏院外面访谈完后,一众演员也跟着进来呼吁我们不要错过任何镜头。嘻嘻,这个hall也蛮大的哦!最一流的是,我坐的位置是最上面而且是蛮中间的座椅,超舒服!

贪心鬼见鬼观后感:

这部戏是新加坡与马来西亚合作的一部以鬼作内容的喜剧电影。与历年所拍的新加坡电影一样,主要演员都是少不了辉哥与李国煌。但是这次李国煌只是穿插当鬼一角,因为他是导演哦!在进入电影院之前,我最想看的演员当然是康康,因为他是台湾著名的主持人,也一样是爱搞笑的一位。果然他没有让我失望。在戏里,康康与辉哥以及袁顺成会遇到鬼,但是康康遇到的是鬼假扮的‘书灵’。书灵用财富利诱康康,结果康康渐渐的堕入鬼所设计的圈套。另一头,辉哥和袁顺成遇见的是一位找他们报复的黑社会女鬼名叫‘蝴蝶夫人’。康康最后是否可以逃过死结,辉哥,顺成是否会得到蝴蝶夫人的原谅呢?这个你们就得到戏院看咯!

我觉得这部戏真的值得去看,里面虽然有少少‘色情’画面,会露某演员的屁股,但是还是老少咸宜,大人可以带小孩去观赏。里头还有康康的好友Nono 也会出现在荧幕哦!整部片传达着最重要的价值观,就是别贪心,如戏里时常提起的对白:“是你的,就是你的,不是你的,就不是你的。”

上映时间:26-7-2012

Cres 美容中心:怎样治疗干燥和脱水皮肤

Cres Wellness: How to treat dry and dehydrated skin After browsing the Google search engine, now I know what is the difference between dry and dehydrated skin. I was always thinking that both things were same,but I was wrong! Look here what I found out in short:

Dry skin- lack of oil being deposited on the surface of the skin characterised by uneven or rough patches, flakiness and deep lines.
Dehydrated skin- lack of water in the skin characterised by a feeling of tightness, peeling and fine lines.

 Thus, water and oil is essential for healthy and radiant skin!

Here are some tips to treat the dry and dehydrated skin:


1.Drink lots of water. This applies to a dry as well as a dehydrated skin. The skin is the last organ in the body to receive the benefits of the water we drink.

2.Nourish the skin from within. A diet rich in essential fatty acids, found in oily fish like salmon, avocados, flaxseeds and walnuts. Or supplement with fish oil or flaxseed oil.

3.Avoid using harsh products (soups) on your skin that may strip away your natural oils – use products that contain oil so that they can seal moisture into the upper layers of your skin.

4.Moisturise! Dry skin needs a cream, such as mum’s secret Soothe & Repair, that will replenish the skin and lock in moisture, promoting the skin’s natural barrier function. Jojoba oil is considered to be the closest match to the sebum produced by our body.

5.Exfoliate – to remove the layer of dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin, preventing any other creams or moisturisers from absorbing any deeper.

But all these still not enough, why?

Contrary to popular belief drinking water does not directly hydrate and impact your skin!
We need our bodies to be hydrated in order for our cells to get the water they need, but we are only as good as our circulation and lymphatic system! If they are not great, the blood vessels will not be carrying all the nutrients, water and oxygen to our skin!

So for a person like me that does not have good circulation and lymphatic system, the best way I can do is to search help for professional treatment! I would definitely recommend you all to visit Cres Wellness
