Learning Art and Craft – Making My Own Jewellery

안녕하세요

I always very jealous of people who can come out with art & craft masterpiece so easily. I like art & craft but I have been keeping on telling myself that I am not good at it and I do not have the talent at it. After years and years of telling myself that I am not good at art & craft, I realise, this is a bad habit and I am absorbing negative energy into my body.

When I am telling myself I am not good, I actually have shut my heart that I am not good, but after I learn Super Life Secret Code, I just notice that if I do not try it, how would I know that I am not good. Complaining will not lead me to anywhere.

There is where I decided to take up some art & craft classes. Last year, I went and studied Graphic design at IACT College. I love it. I start learning how to use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Is interesting but I need more practice. This year, I decided to explore on accessories. As my husband is growing his essential oil business so I decided to learn some DIY accessories to tie up with his business.

So I found Elegant Jewellery Studio on Facebook. They do sell jewellery as well at the same time, they are passionate to teach people who are interested in exploring on jewellery to be part of their hobby or as an additional income. To me, I join because I wanted to find my passion at the same time, I want to see what I can assist in helping my husband.

Elegant Jewellery Studio is inside Shangri-La Hotel shop lot,  1st floor. Honestly, I did not know that hotel has such thing. As I am not familiar with the place, so I took a Grab service from Jalan U-Thant. I only need to pay RM7.00. Easier and convenient as parking is an issue there unless you part at Hap Seng, all day RM4.00 on weekend it seems.

I start with basic classes. This basic class of 3 hours cost RM198.00. In the basic class, I learn how to do a necklace, bracelets and a pair of earrings. Tadaa~~~ It looks simple, but it took me 3 hours to complete this set of accessories. Maybe because I am not familiar, that is why I will need more practice. Practice makes perfect.

I bought the whole set of tools that needed to do own jewellery. These whole sets cost me RM299.00. They come with pliers but I told them I already have one set at home, I do not need the pliers, so they exchange the pliers with a pair of diamond earrings hook. Is interesting. I do not mind explore more.

I am taking all these changes very seriously now because I do not want to live sadly with full of complaining about my life. Is draining up my energy. Life can be colourful and interesting if I following the right path. Let’s enjoy our life~~

DIY Your Own Natural Moisturizer

안녕하세요

I start practising my Love Rules resolutions. Yesterday night myself and my husband try out something interesting. Remember I was telling you we are planning to have our small business? It will be related to Essential Oil.

Yup, I just started using doTERRA essential oil a few months back and I start to fall in love with essential oil. The best part of it is I can use it without worrying that it will be harmful to my family as this oil is natural where you can be used aromatically, topically and the best part is you can even drink or add into our cooking.

Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 3.36.03 PM

Yesterday we tried to make our own moisturizer using lavender essential oil. We got the ingredients from doTERRA blog. Very easy and very convenient. The ingredients that you need are:

⅓ cup aloe vera gel (do not use juice or aloe from a plant as the cream won’t whip properly)
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons jojoba oil
½ tablespoon beeswax
10 drops Lavender oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, gently heat the almond and jojoba oils with the beeswax. 
  2. Once melted, transfer your mixture to a deep mixing bowl. Leave to cool for an hour or until the mixture reaches room temperature.
  3. Slowly add the aloe vera gel and Lavender oil as you blend the mixture with a hand blender.
  4. Continue adding aloe until you have reached your desired consistency.
  5. Store in an airtight container and apply to skin liberally.

The below is the final outcome before we mix the essential oil and aloe vera. Forgive us for the colour of the image because we did it at night and the lighting is warm white at our home =)

Somebody is enjoying mixing the Lavender oil and Aloe Vero into the moisturizer.

I normally use doTERRA Fractionated Coconut oil and 2 drops of Lavender oil on my dry skin. Sometimes I find it quite troublesome when travelling because bringing the Fractionated Coconut oil around. Moreover, I am worried that the coconut oil will spill and leave a stain on my bags which it already happens on my Longchamp =(

With this, DIY moisturizer, Is so easy and handy now because I fill them in a 15ml size bottle which is my previous eye cream bottle and I do not have to worried about coconut oil spilt in my bag now. Yea…..

We have opened a Facebook page name “doTERRA Wellness Natural Essential Oil” just to share the products we are selling and also information that we collected. Do like our page for more information.

감사합니다

New Year Lunch

안녕하세요

Start my first day of work in the year 2018 with a simple lunch but expensive dessert. To kick-start the year 2018, we have lunch at KLCC but we ate at foodcourt only because we want to have a quick and simple lunch. I ate chicken spaghetti from Pizza Milano and the taste is nice too. Is not very expensive. Is only RM9.00.

img_3236

Before we go off, we pass by Haagen-Dazs and we decided to buy a great dessert. Is going to be a great start ahead. We were laughing at our own self because we had a cheap lunch but expensive dessert. This dark chocolate & berry cookies ice-cream milkshake cost us RM20.00.

img_3238

I just want to appreciate every single day that I have gone thru because I want to appreciate every single moment that I have gone thru. Thank you, God, for giving me a good life so that I able to enjoy lunch and dessert.

Hyo Sun Korean Restaurant at The Curve

안녕하세요

Went out to The Curve to have dinner and I wanted to get some stationary for my 2018 planner. While walking we notice there are some new restaurants around and we decided to give a try at Hyo Sun Korean Restaurant. This Korean Restaurant located at The Curve, 1st floor, food concept is similar to KyoChon. Their speciality is also the Korean Fried Chicken.

Currently, they are having promotions, Honey Chicken Set with unlimited rice refill is RM10.90. Asian Chicken Set also unlimited rice refill is RM10.00.

I chose Honey Chicken Set because I feel the Asian Chicken Set is a bit like our Malay chicken rice. Of course for the price of RM10.90 is quite worth it to me because I have rice, chicken, soup, Kimchi (which is my favourite) and a dessert. The Honey chicken is actually very nice and is very crispy. I think they freshly cook because we were informed that we need to wait about 10 minutes for the chicken to be ready.

My husband chose the Honey Drumstick and also Crispy Drumstick. Each flavour cost RM11.50. My husband says both flavours are very good and the Crispy drumstick is really very crispy. He is very satisfied with the chicken taste.

Whoever visits Korean Restaurant, cannot be not ordering the Kimchi Soup. However, if I re-visit this restaurant again, I might not order the Kimchi Soup. The Kimchi soup portion is big and can share with 3 or more people. Is not very expensive too, such a big bowl soup cost RM13.90 with Toufu, chicken breast meat and vegetables inside. I will not order again because the soup taste is quite disappointed. Is not what I expected. I not sure why but it tastes weird. We did not finish the soup at the end.

img_3145

Overall actually the chicken is nice. We will definitely come back for the chicken. However, if I was given a choice to choose between KyoChon and Hyo Sun, of course, I will still choose KyoChon because to me, the chicken is nicer, and the rice tastes nicer too. In terms of pricing, of course currently, Hyo Sun is cheaper because the price has included GST and they do not charge service charge currently.

My Fuchiko x Hello Kitty is also enjoying the food too. Hope they can improve their Kimchi Soup one day.

Wonderful Christmas Celebration in Year 2017

안녕하세요

Merry Christmas everyone! Today is boxing day so everyone has an additional day of Christmas Celebration. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas celebration with your loved one.

This year Christmas, I have lots of fun and is definitely a memorable one. It is also our 1st-month anniversary as a husband & wife. We celebrate our Christmas earlier. I bought a Gold Class ticket for Star Wars movie for his Christmas present. This little old boy enjoys his Christmas present so much because is his favourite movie.

The next day, I bring my mom to One Utama to just have casual shopping as I was on leave. After married, I am so not used to staying away from my parents. I miss them so much. Thank god we are not staying very far, is just like 15 minutes away. I really appreciate my father in law and mother in law because they live in a modern thinking lifestyle, they allow me to go back anytime if I want to. They both respect our privacy. My mother in law always tells me, if we have our own plan just inform her earlier then she will arrange her own plan with my father in law. Of course, currently I still not use to it with my new family even though me and my husband have been together for 11 years. I believe I will settle down in a few more months because I have a great in-law that makes me feel warm.

So, while window shopping with my mom, Take the opportunity to snap One Utama Christmas decorations. This year One Utama decorations are full of white cloud and snow. Is simple yet sweet. Life can be simple as long as is full of sweet memory.

Thereafter few days, my office has Christmas celebrations. I have a wonderful gathering with my office colleague as I am based at the site, so I hardly go into office headquarter. So we manage to have a great time and great food and great dessert.

On the actual of Christmas, we have a family one day trip to Genting Highland. Mommy is complaining that she hasn’t been Genting for 10 over years. So we decided to bring her up for a day trip. Although there aren’t many activities up there because the theme park is closed for renovation but we manage to experience the Christmas feel in First World Hotel. Snoopy is in Genting Highland! Genting has this theme which is “Tour The World With Snoopy”. This “tour” started on 1st November 2017 until 1st January 2018. I feel so lucky we manage to visit the “tour” before it ends.

They have this 3D SkySymphony show at the certain timing. I and my husband managed to enjoy the show while waiting for my parents to finish their Casino experience. Is so nice and cute and also very beautiful. I feel so lucky.

After the lovely Snoopy world tour end, we visited Premium outlet because I wanted to buy a Kipling backpack as my Cath Kidston backpack has torn off. I will be travelling to Singapore next year end of January to attend Anthony Robbins talk. So in order to have a durable and light backpack, Kipling is the best choice. Kipling at Premium outlet having sales, they have 25% off and on top of the 25%, you will enjoy additional 20% discount. So original price for my backpack is RM769.00. So after discount is RM464.40. I love my pink monkey =P. The pencil box is cheaper, They have 40% discount and on top of the 40%, you will enjoy additional 20% discount. So original price is RM169.00 so after discount is RM81.12. Christmas present for myself.

So we went back home with sweet memory, feeling happy and loved. Of course, everybody is very tired especially my brother because not only he is having bad cold flu, he has to drive all of us and when we are on the way back, we were stuck in bad traffic. Holiday tour is also a bad traffic day because when the holiday ends, everybody is travelling back too.

I fully utilise my 2017 Christmas. Filled up the Christmas with full of love. Not only that, I also have additional Christmas present from my mommy and daddy. Souvenir from Thailand. Starbucks Christmas tumbler and Thailand version tumbler. This year Thailand has this promotion where the customer who purchase 2 tumblers and will get a free Christmas bag. So mommy knows I am a Starbucks collector, so she bought 2 tumblers for me. Love you, mommy.

They will always complain that I have too many Hello Kitty around. However, parents love. Whenever they go, they will still buy Hello Kitty merchandise for me. Hello Kitty Zipper storage bags and also Mister Donut drinks container.

img_3074

I love the zipper storage bags and each size has 2 designs.

img_3078

5 more days to go and 2018 will arrive. I tell myself that my 2018 resolutions will be never complained about how bad my life is because my life is great, be grateful for everything I have, live with objectives and continue finding my passion. Life is beautiful and I am lucky that I have a life full of love and peace.

Happy holiday~~ #Love&Peace

My Essential Oil Journey Begin

안녕하세요

As an when your age grows older, you no longer pursue materialistic goals. Instead, you seek for a healthy lifestyle. A lifestyle where you want a Happy Family, a happy partner, a Happy Day.

I heard about essential oil but I did not really get involved with it till my cousin was telling me about it and my colleague was telling me how powerful this oil is. There is where I start doing research and study more about this special oil. I always have a perception that all this kind of aromatic oil will cause cancer in long-term usage because the smell contains chemical ingredients.

After studying about essential oil and my colleague provided me with a few sample, there is where I understand that essential oil is harmless if we have chosen a pure essential oil. I used to have a bottle of essential oil where I got it from Muji. There is no guarantee from Muji that is pure essential oil but it stated “blend essential oil” so I only used it once a while for fragrance purpose.

So I decided to give a try when I attended their 2017 Post Convention Tour – Malaysia. They have this promotion where you will get a free umbrella when purchasing their enrollment set. So my fiance told me to get the Home Essential Kit + Fractionated Coconut Oil and the whole set cost about RM1,345.00 with 260PV. I still studying about this PV concept. Trying to understand how it works because it seems that the more PV you have, you can redeem with other essential oil.

I love the lapel pin which is a door gift during the 2017 Post Convention Tour – Malaysia. I still thinking where can I pin this. =)

I have been using the oil for about a week and still doing research and testing on the oil. So far so good, but new to this so hoping that I will be able to help more people once I master this lovely oil.
