Wunderbath Time!

Wunderbath Time!

I finally have time to bring life to this inactive blog and you have no idea how happy I am for this!

If you haven’t heard about Wunderbath then it’s time to make your way to their first physical store located in Da:Men USJ. Though the traffic there is a pain but it’s worth the journey!

They officially launched their store back in 28 January this year and I was one of the lucky ones to have the first look of the store.

International Women’s Day with Under Armour and Biotherm Malaysia

International Women’s Day with Under Armour and Biotherm Malaysia

Well since El Nino is not leaving us yet, it’s time to bring our workout indoors. Which was what Under Armour Malaysia did as we celebrate International Women’s Day a few weeks back. Biotherm Malaysia was also part of the celebration too since we women love our skincare!

Cause we are Under Armour’s Women of Will!

My October ended in a really inspiring note (Yes it’s almost the end of November and I am only talking about October now.) after I attended the Women of Will campaign launch by Under Armour that was held at the Rooftop, Avenue K. This campaign was held in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness month to celebrate the Pink Ribbon cause. Since I have never participated in any of the events held during Breast Cancer Awareness month for all these years, I though why not do something this year to show support to breast cancer survivors and patients?

So there I was at the rooftop on a Sunday in my Under Armour Hero shirt anticipating to hear the stories from the breast cancer survivors and the yoga session that will be taught by Atilia Haron who’s reminds me of a fairy but a yogi fairy!Sunglasses are the best because it hides your tired eyes but you’ll see my tired face in another photo.women of will under armour malaysiaIt’s a beautiful day for some outdoor yoga!

I’m the odd one out sitting among the Influencers. It pays to be early I guess hahaha!

Some of Under Armour ambassadors were giving a few words on what they think about the campaign. This event is also hosted by Hansen Lee who is one of the ambassadors as well and he is really fit like with veins popping out and a yogi too!

Amnah Salleh was one of the breast cancer survivors who shared her story on how she found out that  she had it.

Quek Chu San was the other breast cancer survivor who shared her story. She lived an active healthy lifestyle and yet she was diagnosed with cancer twice, one was breast cancer and the other cancer was found at another part of her body.
After listening to their stories, what kept them strong and optimistic during those hard times until today was the support that they had from their loved ones and their will to fight through it. Such strong women and I hope that one day I will learn to pull through those hard times and come out with a brighter drive!
Puan Nori Abdullah who is the wife of Malaysia’s current Youth and Sports Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin was there to share her thoughts and launch the campaign together with the rest of the ambassadors by releasing Under Armour balloons up to the sky!
After the launch, Atilia began her yoga session, it was a gentle routine that was easy to follow for me because I have not been yoga-ing ever since I started working. Need to get back into the groove! I couldn’t do the headstand and crow pose though. But it was nice to see others who were able to do it. 🙂

Baby hair problems at the back there. But at least I know I am doing the pose correctly. I’m wearing  Ash Be Nimble’s Hooked on a Feeling Support Singlet (RM90) underneath my Under Armour Hero tee from the Power of Pink range with some leggings from Cotton On’s fitness line.
Finally got to meet Lena after a really long time too! She was looking good in Under Armour from head to toe! #outfitgoals like the ambassadors too.

With the Women of Will campaign, Under Armour has pledged to donate 10% of all proceeds from its Power in Pink range for the entire month of October to its charity partner, the Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA). Under Armour has also set up donation boxes at all Brand Houses too so you can still donate even you’re not buying from that range. The Power in Pink range is so pretty, I wanted it all such as the clothes and accessories but my purse was yelling NO the whole time. But hopefully the range is still available in stores now because pay day has come!

A night with Chvrches

It’s not a spelling error, trust me. Thanks to Samantha and her competition winning streak, I was lucky she brought me along to catch Chvrches, an up and coming Scottish electronic band when they were headlining the first Urbanscapes Satellite show on 19 November this year.

Lauren Mayberry, Martin Doherty and Iain Cook released their first studio album, The Bones of What You Believe in September 2013. Ever since then, they have been touring extensively all over the world and Malaysia’s one of their last stops before they take a break to concentrate on their second album.
Plus, the band received nominations in World Music Award for World’s Best Album and in NME Award for Best New Band this year, so they’re one to look out for! Especially if you’re into electronic  and synthpop music.

 

Lauren sounds just like the songs in the album, no lip-syncing and she reminds me of a pixie or a fairy because she’s so pretty and petite! 🙂

 

The gig ended pretty early even when they came out for an encore performance! Ended the night with their famous hit ‘ The Mother We Share’!

 

One of our highlights of the night was Define Tastemaker’s photobooth too! I think every concert should have a photobooth there so that we get to keep a souvenir to remind us of the awesome nights!

If you don’t know where to start, here are some of my favourite tracks from them! Let me know what are your favourites in the comments and recommend me some similar music. I’m a little behind with the music scene these days because I rather listen to old school rock from 90’s and etc.

 

 

 

This is one of the OST for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1! 🙂

 

Have some healthy gourmet coffee with Luvoco!

Ever drank coffee that has Ganoderma Lucidum, more commonly known as Lingzhi in it? I never heard of it or even tasted it until I had a taste of Luvoco (Love of Coffee), the healthier gourmet coffee. Created by Gano Excel Industries who’s the leading producer of organic Ganoderma and it has the largest plantation in the world.

Reasons this ‘king of herbs’ is good for you:
– It helps to flush out the toxins in your body
– Strengthens your immune system
– May help in preventing and treating diseases such as cancer, diabetes and many more because it contains more than 200 bioactive ingredients!

Curious, I made my way to Luvoco’s launch at Connexion@Nexus, Bangsar South. Whats really special about Luvoco coffee capsules? It has 100% water soluble Ganoderma Lucidum extract, means you’re getting generous amounts of healthy vitamins from that and the coffee too! Win win situation!

I felt that I was under dressed, my smart casual attire had more casual in it then smart. 😛 It was a little intimidating as there was many businessmen and women. But, there was an orchestra troop who played famous pop songs like Fireworks by Katy Perry which was pretty cool! Classy but cool!

 

After the launch, we were then ushered to the next room where we got to try the three coffee capsule varieties which are AmorosoSmooth & Gentle, RaffinatoRefined & Distinct and ClassicoRich and Deep.
I went for Amoroso first, it was a bit sour so I don’t really like it but it’s a light coffee and surprisingly you can’t taste any Ganoderma at all.

 

We got to vote for our favourites by dropping some coffee beans into the vases that was set up along each booth.

 

My favourite blend was the Raffinato, it was just the right amount of bitterness and it comes in a variety of flavours which you can add to your coffee! The winners to me was the vanilla and hazelnut! The only downside is that you have to add in the flavour syrup yourself and you have to purchase it separately.
Whereas, for Classico, it’s a strong black coffee which is not favourite type of coffee unless it’s so good, in this case, it was ok. I rather stick with the Raffinato.

 

I like the machine’s design, it’s a simple to use machine with a modern look. The size is not too bulky either so it’ll fit in nicely in your kitchen, office and room, if you don’t like to share. 😛

Thank you for the goodies, Luvoco! I can’t wait to try the Gano tea in my new cup! The notebook is really nice too with a generous amount of sticky notes! Everyone needs sticky notes!
The camera made me look so white but I’m glad the picture turned out nice! 🙂

On a random note, the beau and I had lunch at San Nae Deul Korean Restaurant after the event and we ordered the lunch sets that were available. Surroundings wise, it is a nicely decorated restaurant with attentive staffs too but food wise, now that’s a different story.

 

It was one of the worst meals I have ever had. After a few difficult spoonfuls, I gave up. The sauce was thick and it tasted like a refrigerator. It was mushy and very unappetizing. Actually it made the beau and I lose our appetite after eating this. I don’t think we are ever going back there.
