Humble Beginnings in my tummy

I bet you didn't know mille crepes came from rather humble beginnings - how they are hand-made and hand-layered into heavenly indulgence that we all so loved today. Hah, now you know! *smug smile*

And since Humble Beginnings found a new home at Queens Street in Queensbay Mall, an afternoon tea is never perfect without mille crepes! *bat eye lashes*

There's a flavour for everyone! From the signature French Vanilla, Chocolate Orange, Peanut Butter Blueberry Blizzard, Nutella Banana, Peach Passion, Lemon Cream Cheese, Strawberry Heaven to Matcha Latte and the list goes on and on and on.

I really don't have the time to name you all the flavours but you can follow Humble Beginnings on Facebook. I've got a sweet business to attend to - my mille crepe is at stake! *snatch my plate from a colleague*

Help! I need a Dorothy Perkins across my body

Yes, I'm in desperate need of tasteful help!

Bask in the holiday and festive mood, who am I (of all people) not to jump on the shopping spree?!

Dorothy Perkins and Burton Menswear London opened last weekend at Queensbay Mall, and I'm charmed by these crossbody bags at DP. I'm seriously torn between the colours though.

from Dorothy Perkins, Queensbay Mall

My first love is the Orange (but pink is still my fav!). I've also been eyeing the pretty Cream since it's more of a neutral, but I wonder if it's just too plain of a colour? And then there is this versatile Black that will be a perfect match for any outfit.

Can you help me pick a colour, pretty please?

Jingle all the way

Here's what happened.

I was gleefully listening to songs on my iPod as usual and out of a sudden, Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas is you came on.

When that happened, it was 12 November. Yes, it was about a month ago. How did it got mixed up with my everyday-playlist? After all the hoo-ha with my iTunes and my questionable skills to sync the playlists, I settled down and it got me thinking: when is the right time to play Christmas songs?

Is it after Thanksgiving (28 November) - which is not widely practised locally? Or is it the first day of December? Or it can be played anytime, all the time?

Anyway, here's a sweet video of children having fun while performing a Christmas medley at Queensbay Mall. You know, if you're already listening to Christmas songs...


Have yourself a merry little Christmas *wink*

Dazzling little treasures for Christmas

As I'm writing this entry, the festive season is well upon us... in all its extravaganza of dancing lights on Christmas trees and glistening spray-frosted window displays.

We've also started decking up the house with socks and wreaths. Now, who's better at decorating Christmas tree - than me?!

I'm pretty good at hanging out sparkly little ornaments, seriously. But I'm absolutely talented in hanging out dazzling arm candies. And look at this gorgeous gem that I unearthed at Poh Kong!

Oh well, giving the gift of jewellery sure does say a lot about the giver. One of them is... thoughtfulness. After all, that's what Christmas is all about.

This Little Treasures Charm Bracelet from Poh Kong makes the perfect Christmas gift for that special lady in your life (mum, grandma, aunt, sister, wife or daughter) - adorning the precious hand that has lifted you up when you fall.

Starbucks Planner 2014: Sharing joy to create wonder

When we hear the festive jingle bells, we know the season of giving is once again upon us. And it’s a hint for me to add on to my Starbucks Planner collection.

Yes, I have religiously collected all the Starbucks Planners over the years. I’m not much of an organised person but it has become a tradition since the planner was first launched end of 2009 with the very first Starbucks Planner 2010.

Don’t tell me you didn’t! These are royal collectibles, I must say!

And it’s so easy to claim yours... ‘Tis the season I turn into a Santarina and share 15 Grande-sized handcrafted beverage (3 of which are from the Christmas range) with family and close friends, purchased via my Starbucks card and tadah! got my planner. Or you can simply buy it off in-store at RM159 nett.  Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!

What I love about the Starbucks Planner 2014? It is designed for me (yes, an iPad user!) where my device can be conveniently slotted in. The quantities are limited, so be sure to grab yours before the festive season runs out!

Will you share joy with 15 friends to get aStarbucks Planner 2014? Or will you pay the price to jump queue?

Hui Lau Shan: Fills your tummy, sweetens your day

I was scratching my head, couldn't decide what to eat after a long, long day last evening. Then I read that Hui Lau Shan now serves Full Meal Set from RM8.90++.

The Full Meal Set comes with a main dish and a selection between a drink or a dessert.

Hui Lau Shan Full Meal Sets

Of course, I immediately chose the Signature Curry Combo Rice, smacked in the middle of the menu *wink* And paired it with Watermelon Sago drink.

Since I was here, I couldn't resist indulging in my favourite Hui Lau Shan dessert - Mango Chewy Ball.

You can add on RM1.90 for a Full Meal + Drinks + Dessert (from the selection only). Boy, was I filled to the brim! Nothing makes me happier than desserts after a long day. After all, spell "stressed" backwards and you get "desserts".

With the proper Full Meal Sets, I'll have an excuse to dine at Hui Lau Shan and enjoy my favourite desserts any time, any day!

Gold candies unwrapped

Every time you spot a rainbow across the sky, do you follow the arch in hope of finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

There may not be a literal pot of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow, but you can find comfort in these gold (wrapper) candies from Famous Amos.

iPhone 5C - The must-have fashion accessory

Besides pay day and Halloween, are you looking forward to 31 October 2013 the same way that I am?

Yes, we are merely less than 24 hours away before Malaysians devour the latest candies from Apple - iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

While many who will be queuing up outside Switch stores are mostly awaiting the iPhone 5S, I believe the iPhone 5C will still sell like hot(cup)cakes. That’s the underlying purpose of the iPhone 5C – reduced price that pops with excitement, designed to reach a new market.

Apple iPhone 5C from Switch, Queensbay Mall

While the tech leaders may not fancy the iPhone 5C much, it is more affordable and to many (like myself), saving a few hundred bucks on a phone allows them to spend those moolah on something else.

Hold your horses, people! The iPhone 5C make no compromise on the looks, features and speed, boasting the following:
  • A6 Chip
  • 4-inch Retina Display
  • 136-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 ppi
  • ƒ/2.4 aperture
  • LED flash
  • 1080p HD video
  • 1.2MP front-facing camera
And you get all the awesomeness from Apple and a smartphone that expresses your personality with a splash of colour.

I know how hard it is to decide on the colour (they are all so pretty!), hence I've prepared colour charts below to make it easier for you to choose your candy. Find your colour and see what it says about you *wink*






I may be getting an iPhone 5C for myself. Can you guess... which pretty colour I have decided on? (Hint: I may love pink, but I'm not going pink this round)

How to dress out loud for Halloween

Don’t tell me you're not hunting for some creepy costumes with Halloween looming around the corner. Bet you already know that this weekend, Queensbay Mall is giving away treats if they spot you all-dressed-up for the celebration.

I’ll be dressing up too, but to be honest, I'm not a fan of full-on fancy. I'm talking about sartorial chic that gets you into the gothic and ghostly mood, and fashionable styles that you can wear again after the fiendish festival.

I've scouted Topshop at Queensbay Mall and there’s more treat than trick *wink*

Vamp it up!
Love Kate Beckinsale's all-leather suit in Underworld film series? Yeah, me too! While wearing a whole leather suit will definitely spark some head-turns, it simply doesn't complement the warm and humid weather on this side of the world.

But I spotted this High Shine Wetlook Leggings that will look great with a pair of strappy footwear. I can’t be Amelia but close enough, right?

Classy corpse-web
If the leather look is not for you, go for a cobweb lacey style to replicate one of the reigning queens of Halloween – Morticia Addams from the mysterious Addams Family. This flair Lace Sleeve Swing Dress is perfect for anyone, and you can easily whip up the look with straight or wavy jet-black hair and a fiery red lip. Hot or what?!

I don’t want common scents!

Scents can be a very personal thing. What makes me feel like a goddess may make you feel like a pauper. But universally, scents are similar to music - they capture moods that create lasting impressions. And I absolutely love aromas that leave a trail of me, even after I’m long gone (not six feet underground, okay!) from your sight.

That is why... I can’t help but fall senselessly in love with Crabtree & Evelyn’s Limited Edition Heritage Collection. The scents exalt the classic aromas of the Mediterranean coastline and Europe’s ancient cities that transport the senses to distant shores.

Flower Water (for the ladies) include scents of Florentia Freesia, Venetian Violet and Old World Jasmine.

Eau de Colognes (for the gentlemen) comprise of Sevillian Neroli, Old Windsor, Hungary Water and Neapolitan Bergamot.

Limited Edition Heritage Collection,
Flower Water and Eau de Colognes

Come, explore and experience the Flower Water and Eau de Colognes at Crabtree & Evelyn. From 15 October - 5 November 2013, or while stocks last, VIP members can grab the Heritage Fragrances at RM168 for one or RM268 for two.

And with purchase of RM300 & above (in a single receipt), receive a 50ml Shower Gel, 50ml Body Lotion and a Limited Edition Heritage Travel Book, absolutely FREE.

I have a particularly scent-timental interest for Old World Jasmine Flower Water, not simply because of its pretty exotic fragrance but because... it reminds me of my dear mother. Perhaps, I inherited her love for jasmine *wink*

Be bold! Don't be shy... it's pretty cool to show off your wild side.

This October, as the world come together to raise awareness for the Pink Ribbon month and support the fight against breast cancer, do your part and go pink for the very first time (if you haven't)!

Well, I'd say: Don't just go sweet in pink. It's time to toughen up and rock a little attitude in pink.

Yes, we've seen studs all over the runways and studded accessories are here to stay. So embrace it and take your studs from head to toe.

Unboxing my new toy - Rapoo Bluetooth Foldable Headset

I agree with Winnie, DOLL of the week on the final episode of Project DOLL that it's easier to match black or white with any outfit.


And it is as if I'm having an affair with them both. I feel guilty every time I had to choose white (mostly) over black, and vice versa. And it may appear that I'm biased because I almost always turn to black when I need help to look lesser, oh I mean, to look slimmer.

Anyway, I spotted the Rapoo bluetooth headset in the video. It would be pretty cool to free myself... and go wireless, especially I'm the always-on-the-go kind of girl. Besides, it'll make perfect workout companion too. Remember? One of my resolutions is to workout more this year...

I picked out the white/grey one, for two (very good) reasons. Firstly, it will stand out on my black/dark brown tresses, and secondly, that was the last white on the rack!

Rapoo Bluetooth Headset from
Harvey Norman, Queensbay Mall

Uncompromising on comfort, this portable headset features cushioned earcups and headband. The versatile functions and minimalist design are carved for the young, trendy and fashionable *ahem* like myself!

And besides good sound quality and light weight, what I love most about this headset is voice recognition - yes to answer calls or no to reject incoming calls. It's pretty cool because now, I have a buddy who listens! *wink*

So, if you're looking for an affordable bluetooth headset that you can use to surf the net, play games, work in the office, or listen to music on your smartphone or tablet, give this Rapoo headset a try. Who knows, you'll fall in love with it too!

Swatch Scuba Libre: Pretty Whim-sea-cal

If you don't already know, I have a soft spot for bright colours... and Project DOLL treated us to yet another vibrancy with the all-new aquatic themed Scuba Libre novelty collection.



True to its tagline, "Mad about the sea", Swatch Scuba Libre unveiled the complete collection that fulfils our whimsical underwater world obsession - Playero, Clorofish, Stormy, Blanca, Cuttlefish, Deep Turtle, Clownfish, Whalebone, and last but not least, my favourite, Sundowner.

However, this collection is not designed for professional diving. Lucky for us, the fashionables, these chic timepieces make pretty great companion to the beach or while snorkelling with a 200m depth rating. And mind you, the Scuba Libre is reasonably priced that you could strap up your favourite and still have enough left over for a trip to the shore!

Scuba Libre, Sundowner from
Swatch, Queensbay Mall

My verdict? It's summer all year round in Malaysia - chill out and get your beach on. Powered by quartz movements, Swatch Scuba Libre is the answer to a pretty stylish and affordable aquatic fun.

Pretty spooktacular

I spotted the stylish Mini (as I fondly call the Fujifilm Instax Mini 25 now) on Episode 3 of Project DOLL, a fashion makeover challenge by Queensbay Mall.


It reminds me of a pumpkin and gets me pretty excited for Halloween.

I must admit that I love capturing selfie pictures. I mean, who doesn't right? Besides, instant is back! It makes capturing moments cool all over again, and it sure does make another gathering with friends and family FUN. And I thought it would be awesome to bring my Mini friend along where ever I go and together, we'll explore the worlds.

I particularly fell in love with the Halloween Edition because of the pop of colour, which will instantly light up any party. Besides, I constantly find ways to balance out the drama queen in me, and I believe I can find the balance in Mini because... it is an instant film camera, it is unpretentious. Mini is as real as it gets, bringing you back to basic, without the drama of filters and the cover-up of editing.

As for the techie part, don't judge Mini by its size!
  • LCD film count 
  • Shooting mode display 
  • Camera mount shooting mirror for taking self portraits (the feature I love the most!)
  • Built-in automatic flash for low-light shooting
  • Detachable close-up shooting lens
  • Three exposure modes - auto mode for dark settings, fill in flash mode for auto flash on bright or dark areas, and landscape mode
  • 275g (without batteries, strap and film)

I'm really itching to get my hands on Mini. I've even lost count of the number of visits to Foto President, Queensbay Mall for the past one week.

Shine bright like a diamond

Oh yes, Rihanna sang it. But I know it.

I know how it feels to wear diamond on my crown. And I know how my hair sparkles with pretty intense shine.

Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine
from Extreme Hair Specialist, Queensbay Mall

I was surprised that only 2 drops of Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine was enough for my mid-length hair. Of course, it is only applied from the middle to the ends of my hair, avoiding the roots.

Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine hair oil further amazes me with it multi-functional usage. It can be applied pre-shampoo, pre-blow dry, overnight as treated, with conditioner or mask, and it can also be applied to dry scalp and skin!

Now imagine all the benefits from camelina oil, coriander oil, apricot oil, olive oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil. It is more than your ordinary leave-in hair oil that boosts high shine, strengthens hair from inside out and moisturises dry skin.

If you're ready to shine like a diamond, head over to Extreme Hair Specialist in Queensbay Mall to enjoy discounts from 5%-30% on selected products in conjunction of their pre-relocation promotion.

Let's shine from head to toe ;)

Will Minnie dance with Mickey?

Oh, I've heard enough wedding bells the past few years, and I'm wondering when love will find me. And talking about love, I wish love was as easy as match made in heaven - similar to how Mickey and Minnie were drawn (literally) for each other.

Well, as you know when the wedding bells chime, it's just a matter of time before the first cry. Cries of newborns, of course. What were you thinking?

Anyway, my twin nephew and niece will celebrate their 3rd birthday end of the month, and being their favourite aunt, I can't help it but to spoil them. Yet again.

Since it just opened in Queensbay Mall last week, I checked out Animation World and boy am I flabbergasted! I wish I'm a little girl all over again, so that I can drag my mum there and maybe bag home the whole store (yeah, as if!).

Okay, back to my role as an aunt. I'm looking at these Disney look because they love Mickey and Minnie. Besides, the dress and suit will look cute on them (at least on my wedding day, whenever that is) *roll eyes*

Garden party and all things pretty

For as long as I can remember, floral print trend has always been in full bloom - from headgears to jewelleries, bags to shoes and dresses to accessories for smartphones and tablets today.

I personally am head over heels for florals and anything nature-inspired - they exude romance, joy and fun. Perhaps that's why the floral trend is here to stay.

Find this feminine and flirty dress from The Executive for a pretty day at work.

Glamour Raya

What I love about festive seasons is the “excuse” to dress up for the party!

And since Hari Raya is just 5 days away, I can’t help but to start my shopping spree. Well, I need to look pretty during house visits... and oh, just thinking of it, makes me drool over the myriad of scrumptious Malay home-cooked “cuisine”.

This being the last weekend to shop before Raya, I decided to go dress-hunting today. I was looking for something that is subtly traditional, so I sashayed over to British India.

Now I can’t decide between this exotic purple chiffon long dress (left) and the more spick-and-span blue embellished jacket (right).

British India, Raya Collection

I love how the chiffon dress exudes a hint of sexiness but not exactly over the top, because it covers the arms and legs. Meanwhile, I love the embellished details that add a traditional touch to the simple modern look.

Help me decide, pretty please.... Which do you think – chic chiffon or clean line?

Take a dare-nim plunge

Mark the end of summer with a punch adding bold detailing to your wardrobe.

If there's just one thing you take away into the second half of the year, it should be this embellished denim jacket from Elle Girl. I love the fact that it is more substantial with a pretty feminine touch than the classic denim jacket but just as versatile.

Take the cue from the night-life, the jacket easily matches a leather slim-fit pants and a sexy silver heels. Or dress it down by rolling up the sleeve and pair it with plain shorts and embellished flats. And voila, you're ready to roll!

Oh, here's the pretty good news... grab up to 30% off storewide from now till while stocks last.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer: Bling or not?

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Lady Series from
Tag Heuer, GF 91, Queensbay Mall, Penang

The newly reopened Tag Heuer outlet in Queensbay Mall makes a pretty grand statement. Living up to its name as the premium Swiss maker of luxury watches, the refined outlet exudes a class of its own.

I'm pretty sure the bright lights sparkled the Aquaracer Diamond Dial timepiece in my eyes *wink*

The authentic timepiece represents glamorous performance, assembled with luxury materials: mother-of-pearl, gold and of course, 10 diamonds.

I also tried on the Aquaracer without diamond. While the former makes a perfect dress watch, the latter choice is a great everyday-companion. I love them both but I must choose only one - I'm at a lifestyle crossroads.

Bling or not. What do you think?

Dress up your workout

One too many cheesecake, Blackball, pretzel, donuts and Frappuccino have baked up a little muffin-top that my fashionable wardrobe just won't approve of!

So, I checked out Absolute Fitness in Queensbay Mall and I'm striking that off my resolution list. Of course I do already own some workout clothes but new attire makes me want to hit the gym even more religiously.

Now, how could I resist from swaying straight down to the Nike outlet, right? I tried a dozen outfits but I'm not crazy and I do stick to a budget. Surprise! Surprise! I'm so proud of myself, I think I deserve a standing ovation. I only chose 1 set that I love the most - a matching sports bra and capri.


Don't you love striking off items on your New Year's Resolution list too?

Colourful summer

Can't believe we've already stepped into July! But the fun continues as we load up our wallet and raid our favourite stores this 1Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival!

I've always loved colours, although black is undoubtedly the safest. While 'safest' is still a must-have, don't we all love to explore our other side that is young, wild and free?

Here are three picks from Mango (GF 82 & 83, Queensbay Mall, Penang) for work, dinner date and weekend getaway.

No nonsense. Sleeveless peplum dress with round neck,
contrast panels at waist, decorative stitching at front
and concealed zip fastening at back.

Subtly sexy. Asymmetric dress crafted
in a lightweight fabric with gathered strap.

Easy breezy. Linen cotton-blend dress with halter neck.
Leather effect belt, frayed armholes, twin side pockets
and back tear drop fastening with metallic button.

What's your pick for a vibrant summer?

Pretty little nails

It's true that you'll never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress (LBD), and it never goes out of fashion. But what about nails...?

While I still love pastels and pops of colours, I'm changing it up and exploring my dark side. I happen to stumble upon these super chic black mani on Pinterest and they're pretty gorgeous!

Bling it up with a hint of gold.

Stand out in the dark.

Bumble bee me?

And if you want to skip the hassle, make an appointment with the professionals - Blaze Nail Beauty (2F 31), Nail Profile (2F 83), Nail World (2F 37) or Summer Nail & Spa Beauty (2F 20).

Got a dazzling black mani secret? Do share with me!

Father by Jennifer S. Williams

Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

When I scratched my knee,
Or if I bumped my head,
When I was afraid of the dark,
Or that thing under my bed,
When I cried in the night,
Or even in the day,
You were there for me,
To make it all okay.

You tickled my feet,
And laughed at all my jokes.
You taught me to believe,
In having high hopes.
You are my father
You did what you had to do.
But more than a father
You are my friend too.
You made everything good,
That was once bad.
I just want you to know
I love you Dad.

Happy Father's Day!

Hugs xx
Quinn
