B for Burberry


I wore this outfit during my visit at Lok Kawi Wildlife Park in Kota Kinabalu. But -minus the coat and I was wearing a different pair of shoes.
I wasn't able to take a photoshoot that time because, it was soooo warm out there I was sweating like a pig! 
My top had sweatmarks all over and my hair was everywhere!
Feeling sticky and grumpy! Haha
For the sake of the post, I altered few of what I wore that day.
And I decided to wear the whole ensemble to a party instead!

My Burberry top was gifted by my mother last Christmas.

Etude House : Moistfull Homme


These days skin care products are becoming one of man's daily needs.
Looking good and pimple free.
Looking young and wrinkle free.
These are few goals we always want to achieve.
Majority of skin care products are catered to women. In most advertisements, they will show women are the only ones who are concerned with looking good and looking young.
But guess what, most popular Korean skin care lines are breaking that stereotype.
You will see in malls, endorsers for Nature Republic, The Face Shop and so forth are MEN!
Because of it, men these days do not feel embarrassed going inside "vanity" shops trying on testers and even buying the products!

So let me share to you my latest skin care obsession: COLLAGEN.
Collagen is a very important ingredient that combats aging because it increases skin elasticity, strength and texture.
It reduces fine lines and wrinkles improving your overall complexion.

Etude House has created a very effective product that meets it all and the best thing is, it's designed for MEN: The Moistfull Homme.

It contains Orchid with purifying effect, Baobab fruit extract with its nickname of Moisture Tank and Collagen with its efficacy for enhancing the firmness of skin.

A multi-functional toner that supply moisturizing care in fluid formula.

It provides refreshing moisture to the rough skin of men without oily finish. 

Vol 150 ml (5.2 fl oz)

Vol 50 ml (1.69 fl oz)

Should be applied after using the toner.

The cream comes with a free mini toner for traveling.

Jessica Sanchez : Fashionable Diva


American Idol Season 11.

"She may not took home the title but for me, she's the winner."
May sound cliche but true.
Jessica's vocal prowess is undeniably strong and beautiful.
She has wowed Grammy Award-winners such as India.Arie, Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Holliday and a lot of great artists.
She touched millions and millions of people thru her unforgettable rendition of the late great Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You."
So yes, she is a great singer and she is going to be a legend someday, I totally agree with Akon.

Here are two things that made me excited to watch Jessica every week: her performance (of course) and her outfit.

You can see in this girl that she has good taste in fashion.
What she wore is always fabulous and stylish.
The American Idol stylist Soyon An even calls her the "little fashionista".
With her tiny frame she can wear almost anything!
So without further ado, I'd like to present to you my top ten favorite Jessica Sanchez ensembles.

Dental Care


After having my braces adjusted that afternoon, I suddenly came up with an idea of wearing something preppy for the party. I added the necklace and a pair of boots to give my outfit a bit of a rocker touch to it. I think blue and white are such pretty awesome colors to combine with. It reminds me of the sky and clouds.

The hole so tiny only my pinky can fit in to it!

Brunei : The Abode of Peace


Brunei, officially the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace, is a sovereign state located on the north coast of the island of Borneo, in Southeast Asia. Wikipedia

Here are two of the most popular Mosques in Brunei that visited.

Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque 
is a royal Islamic mosque located in Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of the Sultanate of Brunei. The mosque considered one of the most beautiful mosques in the Asia Pacific and a major landmark and tourist attraction of Brunei.
Named after Omar Ali Saifuddien III, the 28th Sultan of Brunei, the mosque as a symbol of the Islamic faith in Brunei dominates the skyline of Bandar Seri Begawan. The mosque is built in an artificial lagoon on the banks of the Brunei River at Kampong Ayer, the "village in the water". The mosque's most recognizable feature, the main dome, is covered in pure gold
The interior of the mosque is for prayer only. It has magnificent stained glass windows, arches, semi-domes and marble columns. Nearly all the material used for the building has been imported from abroad: the marble from Italy, the granite from Shanghai, the crystal chandeliers from England and the carpets from Saudi Arabia.

Jame'asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque
This mosque is the largest mosque in Brunei. It was built to commemorate the 25th anniversary the sultan's reign. It is locally known as the Kiarong mosque.

This was taken outside the Saifuddin Mosque.
Before entering the mosque, we to remove our footwear and we have to wear the long black dress and women have to wear it along with a headdress called Hijab.
Once inside the mosque, no one is allowed to take pictures. Non-believers can only step foot on a red carpet in a very limited area.
There you will see jaw-dropping intricate designs and colorful stained glasses spread across the ceiling.
