BBE1117 should mean best before year November 2017.



The shampoo is yellowish clear gel with smell of rosemary, cypress and citrus.  I find it really refreshing since I do love smell of rosemary.  It does lathered but not much considering that this doesn't contain sodium laureth sulfate which is harmful.  It has soft foam since it is made of natural ingredients and rest assure since a lot of foam doesn't mean it actually clean the scalp better.

I find it cleanses the hair well and doesn't leave residue on the hair.  It makes my hair fluffy without the use of conditioner as well.  I think this natural shampoo products are really great even for the whole family.  My family members love it very much.  It is also easy to carry just this one bottle of shampoo for the whole family during travelling =) .

CHEE CHEONG FUN RECIPE/ STEAMED RICE NOODLES/ HONG KONG STYLE CHEE CHEONG FUN


I guess many knew about that famous leaning tower of Teluk Intan, Malaysia and "the must eat" food when you are in Teluk Intan. Today, I am sharing the similar food recipe of this famous Chee cheong fun or the direct translation will be the ‘intestine’.


There are actually few shops that selling the same thing but they amount of ingredients and price are different. Tourist will usually patronise the famous Liew Kee Chee Cheong Fun shop in Jalan Hill the road which only has takeaway.  The locals will go to San Siew Yeah Chee Cheong Fun further away from the town, Jalan Sultan Abdullah. which only opens at night.


The chee cheong fun in Teluk Intan is actually different because we eat it with green pickles chillies and the ingredients is mixed up inside the noodles itself. However, many who are used to plain chee cheong fun will not find it interesting or tasty.

CHEE CHEONG FUN RECIPE/ STEAMED RICE NOODLES




Anyway, here my mum’s homemade chee cheong fun. We don’t know what is inside the real chee cheong fun as those are secret recipe that they won't tell anyone.  Here we put in anything we like. XP

RANDOM: HOW TO COLOUR SEA SCENERY

Dearest readers,

Today is just a day when I don't feel like doing anything, stress going up to the roof and people are testing your patience.  I have one of those days too. T_T

I like to draw although I am actually not very good in it.  It is actually self taught since I don't get to go for art classes.  Most Asian parents like mine doesn't encourage it and find that drawing is a waste of time.  I don't get to draw or colour at home so if I do colour, it has to be a secret. .

Anyhow, here is a drawing inspired by my feelings.  I didn't use any pencil in this drawing.  I just use the white pastel colour to draw the outline of it.(just the rock).  There is not smudging here.

I am only using the 6 colours-yellow, brown, dark blue, light blue, black and white.

HOW TO COLOUR  SEA SCENERY


If you are interested on how I come up with this, here is the few simple steps:

Ingredients: 6 main pastel colour (yellow, brown, dark blue, light blue, black and white) You can use pencil colour too.


1. draw outline with white pastel colour.
2. Use the yellow to colour the rock. Just colour anywhere you like and leave some empty white space.Use the dark brown to colour on the yellow and places near the water. Use the black to top it on the outline of the rock.
3..  Use the light blue to colour the flow of the water.  Leave some empty white spaces near those rocks where the waves will hit.  Use the dark blue to darken it.  Lastly, use the black to lightly draw on the outline.
4.  Just colour the light blue from the left to outside to the inside.  Leave some empty spaces in upper centre.  Then use the dark blue to darken some part follow up by black.  Then use the grey to fill up some spaces between the two colours.
5. Finally, use the white pastel to clear up and lighten up some part.

As you can see, my rocks look weird XP.



So what do you do when you are stress up or what you do for your hobby?

KOREAN SKINCARE ROUTINE 2015 FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

Many had actually emailed me and asked me to recommend products for acne prone skin.  Actually I am not in a position to tell what you should buy because I haven't get to try all the products in the world as well as my limited knowledge to what I had tried and what works for me.  Besides, I am not a certified dermatologist who is trained with many years of knowledge about skin.

KOREAN SKINCARE ROUTINE 2015 FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

I am just a self-taught person who through trial and errors found products suitable for me.

Before getting whatever I use, please check your age, skin types, your allergies(acne prone skin are known to be allergic to few things namely nuts, milk, sugar or medicine) and your type of acne (cystic, small localised bumps, pustules, blackheads or whiteheads).

Currently my skin is not bad but it is not perfect.  I still have those box scars and only procedure can remove it.  By the way, if you are pregnant, then I don't suggest you to use exactly what I used.


I am actually already in my late 20s so the type of skincare products I used are different from teenagers because adult skin can't take any harsh beating. Skin also heal way slower than the teenagers thus the scars =( .

Nevertheless here is what I actually use when I have pimples/trouble/acne.


Cleanser
Natural skincare cleanser- a'kin sandalwood&neroli pure facial cleansing gel (combination skin)
Drugstore - cetaphil gentle skin cleanser  (dry skin) (if you do not mind paraben)
Ayurveda-Himalaya Purifying gel cleanser (for oily skin&for men)


These two are my favourite cleansers after trying so many in the market.  Cetaphil has paraben if you don't mind.  I don't use cleanser specifically for acne because they are mostly drying.



Acne/pimples cream

HOE T3 MYCIN CLINDAMYCIN GEL 1% (afternoon)
REVIEW ON DIFFERIN (only at night)
zinc oxide and calamine for acne prone skin (sensitive skin)
Tea tree (oily skin)
nixoderm  (oily skin)


Here are my few favourites.  I had tried so many and will still come back to these.  They are not from expensive brands but they work wonders.  Clindamycin is a type of antibiotic so stay away from it if you are allergic to aspirin or antibiotic.  Differin is a type of gentle retinoid but I think one need prescription if you are from the US.  In Malaysia, you can just get it from pharmacies.

Pure tea tree oil is generally recommended for oily skin type and do not use it too much as it is can be toxic.  It works.

Nixoderm is actually sulfur and it works wonderfully but do not apply too much as it will burnt your face.  Mmm, after all beauty is pain?

I love calamine to heal the skin and to reduce the size of the pimples but of course you can only use it at night or else looking like a ghost with white patches around the face.


If you are into Korean acne prone skin then do check these popular Korean brands
Scinic
Etude House wonder pore toner
Enca (oily skin)
Ciracle pimples series
Chica Y Chico Tota 
CORSX

Moisturiser

KLAIRS MOIST SOOTHING CREAM (dry skin)
SKINMISO PORE ZERO NIGHT CREAM
Marula oil (sensitive skin)

It is really important to use moisturiser since acne prone skin get irritated when it is dry.  Even if you have oily skin, you should use one.  Marula oil works the best on irritated skin but it is the most expensive one out of the four but if you have the money, you should try it.



Blackheads&whitehead

skinmiso pore beauty nose pack from korea
If you only have blackheads and whiteheads on the nose then try this.  I think it is still the best even after trying so many brands for blackheads and whiteheads.  This is the only one that hasn't fail me and still work despite using it for few years.



If you are wondering why I didn't recommend toner, serum or emulsion, it is because my skin is too irritated to be able to use too many things when I have pimples so I will just use few products.  You should use sunscreen during the day even when you have pimples to prevent further damage to the skin.

REVIEW ON LINDEN LEAVES ABSOLUTE DREAMS BODY OIL

Linden Leaves is very famous for their body oil with real ingredients in it. One of their most famous one would be the Memories body oil which has a stalk of rose inside the bottle.  Of course it is more unique to receive a bottle with flowers that will not wilt.

What I have here for today is the Absolute Dreams body oil which contains lavender flowers in it.  Of course it is not as romantic as receiving a stalk of rose but I prefer lavender for the relaxing properties and you can use it as a bath oil or as massage oil.

Absolute dreams body oil comes in gold yellowish liquid and it is quite thick but the application is easy and absorb well into the skin leaving no trace of stickiness.  The smell is absolutely soothing. I love the lavender scent that is not overpowering.  My skin is still lightly scented with lavender even after few hours.

Since it contains vitamin E, it will help with dry skin and also help to prevent stretch marks. I think it would make a useful gift during special occasions such as anniversary, birthdays, Valentines or Christmas exchange.

Application is easy because of the tip.  Just press the tube and the lipbalm will come out.  The lipbalm has yellowish transparent waxy gel.  There is smell of bubblegum.  One only need a little for the lips.  It does moisturise my lip and feel minty because of the menthol ingredients in it.  However, I am not sure about other beneficial effect that I can see from using it for a week. After all, our lips doesn't have oil gland that makes it prone to acne.
