First Miss Whoosh Glamorous Event

Hi!
About the middle of December, I got to attend an eyewear event at the Curve.
Did you know that Whoosh Eyewear is a sister brand of Focus Point? I honestly didn't know about that until the event day. Each day, new surprises.

So, who rules the Game?

Hi, this is a belated post because event was way back in November!


I received an invitation to attend the launch of Playboy's latest fragrance, their King of the Game and Queen of the Game fragrances, held at Zouk (TREC). My first visit here! Lol.

Dear Diary #10

Dear Diary,

I almost forgot writing in for September and October is soon ending.

So by now, I don't remember much about what happen last month. I might mix September with October incidents.

There are a few unhappy ones. But before that, I will try to recollect my memories from Dayre.

'There You Are', Jessie Chung's First English EP


Last Tuesday, on 23rd August, I witnessed the launch of Dr Jessie Chung's (a Sarawak-born international singer, actress, and entrepreneur) first English EP ‘There You Are'. She is well known in the Chinese market and so, with this EP, she will enter into the English market.   This EP will feature three songs “There You Are”, “Drive My Heart” and “Some Place Honest”.

“I would like to dedicate this EP to both my father and my husband,” said Dr Jessie Chung. “I want to tell everyone that it is important to cherish your loved ones while they are still alive and I hope that, through my music, I am able to touch the hearts of many and get this message across.”

Dr Jessie adds, “I am very fortunate to be always surrounded by good people that have my best interest – be it my loved ones, friends and colleagues.  And it is because of them that I have the courage to spread my wings and fly.  I am not afraid of change, and to try new things.  So far, I am very grateful that the Chinese market has accepted my work.  I think it is timely to move into the English market and to make my music truly international.”

Dr Jessie has released seven other albums, notably Home, Loving You, Message of Love from the Moon, Love in You, I Just Fall in Love Again, and Tearless Sky.  Her single "Love in You" was selected as the theme song for the Korean TV series My Secret Garden in Taiwan. Jessie Chung’s last album rose to fourth place on the I Radio Top Hits Chart and 6th place on the Pop Radio Top Ten Music Chart in Taiwan, just within two weeks of her initial release. 

‘There You Are’ is produced by Andy James Court, a renowned Australian veteran musician who is known for his rock ‘n’ roll style during the early years of his career. He has won over thirty international music awards and was the recipient of the 2015 Song of the Year Award. The music video was filmed and produced by Elijah Cavanagh, a film director from Brisbane, Australia.  

“The filming of the music video for There You Are has been such a journey,” said Jessie. “We spent two days and nights, travelling on the road throughout Brisbane and Gold Coast to shoot the music video. It was very cold at around 10 degrees Celsius, but I was not allowed to wear a sweater to keep myself warm. The most unforgettable moment was the one at the beach.  As I was walking on the top of the cliff next to the ocean, I nearly fell down, but luckily, being trained with Wushu skills, I was able to maintain my balance.”

At the recording sessions, producer Andy praised Jessie for her beautiful voice and vocal techniques which were beyond his expectations. He was very surprised, during production, how easily she fulfilled all his requirements; her tone, pitch, and emotions were perfect. What surprised him even more was that Jessie, who isn’t a native English speaker, accentuated well when she sang, and he praised generously. 

Dr Jessie’s artist manager in Australia, Jonathan Timm said, “As her artist manager, I am privileged to work with her and to introduce her into the Australian market. I’ve listened to three songs in the album, and I love them. What’s really different about these songs are that they are big songs; like “anthems” played at stadiums, moving all those that sing along with it.  As for the music video, I found the aesthetics clean and polished, and, of course, Jessie looks amazing in it. I think her fans are going to love it.” 

“My goal is to help her achieve the widest exposure and acceptance in the English-speaking markets, and this includes the Australian and the global markets through different forms of distribution, especially digital marketing. The change of image is part of the plan as well. In this English EP, we have created a new image for her, portraying a different side of Jessie who is energetic yet fun-loving,” Timm added. “We are all so excited to introduce this new image of her!”

Mr Darren Choy, Managing Director of Warner Music Malaysia and Singapore said, “Warner Music is one of the world's leading music publishers and we represent some of the most established artistes in Malaysia.  We are very proud to have also been Dr Jessie Chung’s distribution partner since her last Chinese album, “Tearless Sky”, and now once again for her EP “There You Are”

Choy continued, “I would like to highlight that the EP will be available on various digital platforms including iTunes, KK Box, Spotify, Deezer, Joox from 2 September 2016 onwards. We hope that you enjoy these songs as much as we did.”

“There You Are” can be purchased digitally on iTunes and KK Box, and the album will be available in all NHF outlets nationwide. Get a copy of the EP today or download from iTunes.

After an interview with Dr Jessie Chung and officially launching the EP, we were treated to a video screening of 'There You Are'. It carried a simple message of cherishing your loved ones. Do get her EP and enjoy the three featured songs. Or you can purchase it digitally.

Thanks for reading.

Dear Diary #9

Dear Diary,

Just a few days ago, a hurtful incident happened.

The kitten that we found after Raya holiday and failed to get adopted hence we are taking care of it, even gave a name, passed away. Due to shock from being surrounded by the stray dogs.

The loss hurt us.

Especially me. 

Because it was me who found it surrounded by the dogs.

And it was also me that let it die.

Because my actions were slow, it didn't get the emergency attention it needed.

It hurt. So did his words.

Until now, as long as my thoughts aren't kept busy, I remembered the exact words he said.

Dear Diary, it hurts so much.

To the point that I did what I thought I had to do.

And that action instead hurt our relationship.

I don't know. It was like a series of unfortunate events.

We managed to solve our quarrel that day.

Dear Diary, why can't we have amnesia pills?

There's just so much I want to forget, forever.

On a side note, I have come to terms with my hatred of other girls. Instead of myself being dumb focusing on bitches, I'll focus on myself, get that bikini body, smile and laugh more and enjoy my life. So that whatever shits that happen after this, I can just laugh it off because I have my own life to live.

Carpe diem!

Event: Lacelle Diamond Daily


Lacelle Diamond
Stunning eyes that shine like diamonds

Hi, readers!

The saying 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend' has been popular lately. And there are songs for just that. Examples are, of course, the most popular, by Marilyn Monroe and by Rihanna 'Diamonds'.

Most, I repeat, most ladies would prefer this lovely gemstone.
*Some would prefer sapphire, gold, silver, etc.


Hence, on 10th August 2016, Bausch + Lomb Malaysia introduced another innovative product; the Lacelle Diamond Daily, a daily disposable cosmetic contact lens. This Lacelle Diamond is set to be your new ‘best friend’ for that unparalleled sparkle that it brings to your eyes.

Designed in a unique pattern that mimics the light-reflecting facets of a solitaire-cut diamond, wearers of the Lacelle Diamond Daily can expect a diamond-like dazzle to transform their appearance. On top of that, its 13mm pattern diameter, gives wearers a larger and pronounced iris for a doe-eyed look without the use of make-up.

As with every Bausch + Lomb product, stringent quality control and state-of-the-art technology is of utmost priority.  With that said, wearers can enjoy unrivalled product safety and absolute peace of mind with the Lacelle Diamond Daily.

“For centuries, women have gone through great lengths of pain and torture in the quest of beauty. We believe that women shouldn’t have to take unnecessary risks to their health for the sake of beauty. With Bausch + Lomb, beauty goes hand-in-hand with comfort, functionality and safety. With a proven track record of more than 160 years, we are a name you can trust for something as valuable and precious as your eyes,” said Jake Kim, Managing Director of Bausch + Lomb Malaysia.

On the subject of functionality, being a daily disposable lens means the Lacelle Diamond Daily saves wearers the time and hassle of cleaning and maintaining required of a normal contact lens. Hygiene is also guaranteed as wearers can begin each day with a clean, sterile-packed lens.

To suit any personality or appearance, the Lacelle Diamond Daily comes in 3 different colours.

Karen Kho (Blogger)

The Bausch + Lomb Lacelle Diamond Daily was recently launched at ROYALE BINTANG, The Curve in a fun and innovative event. Graced by luminaries in the media and entertainment circle such as social media influencer Jane Chuck, social media influencer and model Venice Min, Miss Universe Malaysia 2016 Kiran Jassal and blogger Karen Kho, the highly interactive event had guests receiving ‘diamonds’ throughout the event for every question they manage to answer correctly regarding the product. At the end of the event, the guests were able to exchange their ‘diamonds’ for attractive prizes.

The event also enabled guests to get to know more about their favourite celebrities, their lifestyles, contact lens use and how Lacelle Diamond Daily has improved their lives.

Lacelle Diamond Daily will be available at all major optical stores nationwide. It retails at
RM42 per box for 10 pieces and RM110 per box for 30 pieces.


I was generously provided with 2 boxes of Lacelle Diamond Daily 10 pieces to try out, chose Aqua Glacier, my favourite blue. Haven't got the opportunity because I am a spectacles kind of lady, I just love the convenience of putting on and taking off my spectacles. But yeah, I hate how my foundation will 'move' to my spectacles. So, I usually wear contacts on special, very special circumstances. Plus, my eyes are very sensitive as they are quite dry due to the unforgiving air conditioning and weather. I will update a product review later.

Product Review: Peripera Peri's Ink Minimini Set Girl's Cabinet


Hi!

Peripera Peri's Ink Minimini Set Girl's Cabinet is newly released in Malaysia and I got mine from Sasa and Watsons.

It's a set of 4 mini inks and 1 BB cream, including the Limited Colour- Cute Qurtz. There are 4 sets: Pink, Blue, Silver and Hot Pink. All sets will have the Limited Colour ink while the other 3 mini inks will vary. The BB cream is same in all sets, in Bright Beige. More details below.

Let me show you what's the contents of  Blue and Hot Pink.

First up: BLUE

The packaging is eye-catching; you won't miss it on display!

Comes with a sticker to DIY your cabinet, means no cabinet will be the same.

INK Limited colour Cute Qurtz
INK 3 No Way
INK Moist 3 Top Red
INK Velvet 1 Sellout Red
INK Drop BB 2 Bright Beige

Swatched from BB cream, Sellout Red, Top Red, No Way and Cute Qurtz.

Another cabinet is Pink but I didn't choose that. Contents are the same as Blue though, so just choose your tin colour!

Next is: Hot Pink

This totally caught my eyes at Sasa. How can you resist, that colour plus the design?

Also comes with a sticker for DIY.

INK Limited colour Cute Qurtz
INK 5 No Spoiler
INK Moist 2 The Cutest Pink
INK Velvet 3 Incrush Orange 
INK Drop BB 2 Bright Beige

Swatched from previous BB cream inwards is No Spoiler, The Cutest Pink and Incrush Orange.

There's another colour, Silver, but I suggest if you like the contents, Hot Pink is a better choice to decorate your vanity table. Lol.


I haven't got enough time to try out all 8 inks (yeah, a lot for one lip Lol) so I can't judge how long lasting they are.

After the swatches, it was not easy to clean off so I guess they do last long and won't fade fast. There is a slight sweet smell but barely noticeable. The BB cream matches my skin tone, which would match Laneige Cushion Foundation shade #13 or Maybelline BB Cushion Foundation shade 02 Light.

My favourites are The Cutest Pink and Cute Qurtz, which have a pinkish shade.

Price: RM90.10
Sasa is currently having a sale until 31st August and you can get 10% off for this.
