5 Favorites and 1 Regret July 2013

So I will do this post on a monthly basis. Talking about 5 things I'm loving and the 1 thing I regret buying for this month. Let's get started

Favorites
1. Jelly Slip on: They are so comfortable and I am so glad to have bought 2 pairs. You can throw in your bag as a emergency pair of shoe because it is super light as well. It's so fun and all time wearable. I really enjoy the skull detailing on it. Bought these from Terminal 21Shopping mall for 250 Baht for a pair.


2. Shades: These sexy shades were for 50 Baht only. The funny think about it is that, It's really difficult for me to find shades that suits my face. This one was the first pick and it fitted amazingly. I got this from a local market in Phaurat. I've just been rocking in these on sunny days. So in love with it.

3. Apple Magic Mouse: The magic is in the Multi-Touch. As mentioned in Apple Thailand website: The new magic mouse redefines what a mouse should do. Om addition to its smooth, seamless top shell design that acts as one button or two, magic mouse features a multi-touch surface with gesture support. 
To be honest, apple products are difficult to use, but once you get the hang of it, it makes wonders. Not that the track pad of MAC is any bad, but this is one of the accessorize you should have of course if you have additional money to spend on. If not the track pad is a class a part anyways. It is the coolest mouse I've ever owned. It looks elegant on my table. I got this mouse for  2,390 Baht from the apple shop. 
For more information, click Apple Website.

4. Taro Fish Snack: This has been my life saver in my diet. I've been trying to lose weight and this has been my to go snack. I put them in a microwave for 20 seconds and they turn out crispy. They don't advertize has slimming product but from the ingredients, I figured that it could fill me with less carbs. Here is the rough ingredient as mention on the package: Fist Meat 77%, Sugar 7%, tapioca Flour 6%, Wheat Flour 4%, no preservative mono-sodium glutamate added. They have got in many flavors and Bar-B-Q flavor is my all time favorite. One packet cost 15 to 20 Baht depending on the quantity.
 

5. Revlon Just bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous: I absolutely love this product and this color. My previous experience with lip stain were not that great because it would dry me out. But this one, it moisturizes but also stains my lips. I love the orange tangerine color this delivers and even after the sheen dies down, the color still remains and it still looks good. This is a great color to wear during the spring and summer months (not that there is any spring or winter here in Thailand...hahhaha) Got this for around 350 to 400 Baht if I am not wrong. You can get this at Watson, Boots or any department store in Bangkok.

Regret
1. L'oreal Age Perfect Eye Cream: I remember buying this from Manila duty free and I am so disappointed with this product. It cost around 750 Baht, which is considered to be expensive for a drug store skin care. It did nothing to my under eyes except minimal nourishment. It had big claims of having extravaganza ingredients and all that jazz. It flakes and makes my concealer clog and thick. I tried to give it time and finished it. But in the end it really did nothing and I would NOT buy it again.

Review - Have a Zeed by Steak Lao Restaurant

Today I went for a catch up with my friend Neet at Terminal 21Shopping Mall, we were actually heading to eat at Piri Piri but this restaurant struck us. This restaurant serves Thai or what you call I-san food. There was a big selection of the food, it was just so hard to decide what to order. They had variety of drinks and yummy flavor ice cream. We were 2 of us and we ordered 4 dishes and and the yummy lemon Ice-tea. I like all that we ordered except for one dish that had fish, they served was frozen fish which ruin the taste. The restaurant was packed.

Atmosphere: Hmm I would say it was more like an air condition food court. Tables were close to each other and you can here what surroundings table are talking about. It's more for family brunching or  a quick catch up meal kinda restaurant.

Value: We ordered 4 dishes and 2 Lemon Ice tea. The check came for 830 Baht. I would say moderate. It is slightly expensive I would say with that kind of a atmosphere.

Service: Service was good. The staff I guess are from somewhere else cause they couldn't speak Thai properly but that doesn't bother me at all. Also we had ordered som tam (Thai papaya Salad) without shrimp, but it came with it. My friend is allergic to shrimp so we had asked them to change, without hesitant, they quickly did.

Address: 4th Floor of Terminal 21 Shopping mall on Sukhumvit road.

Overall: If your not looking for a fancy restaurant and want good I-sarn or Thai food, I do recommend this place.

Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio

olaaa... Got this Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesusio. It's my first Nars lipstick and I must say I am totally in love with it.  I got this lipstick today, it was given to me by my best friend Neet.

It's a matte shade and a really bold red. It's a very flirtatious color. I adore this high end red. The best thing is, it doesn't bleed even if I don't wear a lip liner, it doesn't dry my lips at all and it makes my teeth looks white. The downfall, it does transfer on so you do need to apply it if your out for a function.

When it's the next time to splurge, this will surely be my next pick. (of course in different color)

Magnum M Cafe in Jakarta - Indonesia

I was in Jakarta a couple of months back for work and one of the days we went to try Magnum cafe as non of us as ever tried it before. So this was my first Magnum experience. The experience was just wow. The second one was in Bangkok, click on this link to see my Magnum M Cafe Review in Bangkok.

Of course at that time, magnum cafe had just revamp in Jakarta, so the queue was quite long. But yet we waited and waited. It was worth the wait. I would say the Magnum M Cafe in Jakarta is way better than the one in Bangkok. The set-up and the feeling was average in Bangkok.

Atmosphere: The set-up was so grand and it felt so expensive. Every detail of the design was thought about into tiny bits. They had a small outdoor as well, which had an awesome view. If I am not wrong it's on the 6th floor. It's the perfect atmosphere for friends or family to catch up or even better for a date. It is a perfect place to hang out. 

Value: It was valuable. It was perfect for the price. Specially my order was the red velvet, OMG, its to die for. The experience of eating it was so worth the money paid for. The mouth melting ice-crem and it's richness was superb. One dish was  around 160 Baht. 

Service: The service here I would say average as all the table was occupied so they had to really turn over the table as quick as possible thus causing not pay a lot of attention to us. 

Address: Beside Blitzmegaplex, 6th Floor, west mall of Grand Indonesia, Jakarta.

CC Double O on 70% Sales

CC Double O went on 70% sales starting today. So I had to stop by to check out. I love the scent of this store. It has it's own signature smell like Abercrombie. But there were so many people that smell disappeared. I just got one white color jumpsuit for 530 Baht after 70% off. I'm in love with the material. It feel super comfortable. On the other hand, there is no such thing as free, so the piece i picked up had a slight yellow stain on it. The store was so dark that you wouldn't be able to see it. I wouldn't have pick it up if I saw this in the store. Anyways, double- triple check before picking up.

Gift from Paris !!!

My cousin sister had gone to Paris to accompany her hubby for work. So she got some goodies for me from Paris. One day I will be there too, I promise.. Kissing under the effile tower .. How sexy would that be.. (giggles) 

She got me this cute key chain and an invisible sun protection spray from L'oreal. I was so excited when I received this sunscreen spray. I am just into apply sunscreen before I leave the house and it has in turn become a routine in my life (which changed from before). 

It has SPF 50 and it's an invisible spray. All the wordings behind were in French, so I couldn't make what formula it was. I did try to search on google.com but there was not much about this spray at all. But from what I assume, you should be able to spray in on top your make up. So that is why I have on my work table, so that I can re- apply my sunblock in the afternoon. 

To be honest, it feels a sticky on my face after spraying it. But elsewhere was tolerable to me. I thought with the spray, it shouldn't be so sticky and oily on my face. Rather than this, my cancer council sunscreen works way better, in terms of stickiness. here is a link to my cancer council sunscreen review
There is no white cast from this spray. It has a strong sunscreen smell but I am ok with it.
