We will be flying off tonight!! For one month!
In case you guys forget about me, this is a reminder to remind you not to forget about me wtf.
Also the both of us suddenly gain a lot of weight so it’s going to be a Big Fat Greek Wedding T__T
We will fly to Istanbul -> Athens -> Santorini, then have our big fat greek wedding with Sunrisegreece , go back to Athens and fly direct to Rome, from then on we are absolutely clueless for now lol.
Final packing and cleaning today.
Also did my wedding nails
Then have to have my left index finger’s gel removed for voting.
The nail shop staff is very very nice la! She told me gel-off service is RM50, but i said i only wanna remove one finger lol. And then she found out that’s it’s for voting, so she didn’t charge me in the end! Thank you!!
After that becomes liddis hahahah.
But since it is in-indelible ink, now it is no more blue liao hehehhe.
Colored my hair again at Number76, this time in Mid Valley Northpoint!
The new hair trend is super healthy long hair that is shiny and smooth!
Graduate from crazy colors, and go for quality texture
The color is mixed with collagen powder (available soon), and it is super amazing shiny and healthy looking!
Before and after
(Magic treatment + color mixed collagen powder)
Actually before is not THAT bad la hahaha cuz i didn’t wash the night before and i haven’t had time to maintain it :X
Quite magic right!!! Any more magical than that we have to call it Najib Treatment already.
Hair also grew to waist length! I’m also quite surprised myself that i could keep it this long.
Ok that’s all!
Also, Chiji made it to Japanese magazine!!!!!

Changed back to All-Star when doing half-body lol
The location is Harajuku!!
See you in Europe!
GE13 is over, and i can’t sleep. Maybe many of you can’t sleep too? Welcome.
I apologize in advance for my blabbering in this blog post. Even I don’t know what i am going to write.
As you all know i am publicly unpatriotic, but i actually don’t hate Malaysia. It would be quite crazy to hate your own country. I admit i don’t love it with a burning passion until i can sacrifice everything for it, but i don’t hate it. I am thankful that my ancestors moved from South China to this country, (which i think is much, much, much, much better, at least i can have a Facebook account), and i am forever grateful that it is Malaysia who made me a moderately successful blogger (and hence all the amazing opportunities in life that ensued), gave me a moderately comfortable life, and allows me all you super awesome readers, which i doubt i can achieve given i was born and raise elsewhere. For that i thank my grandparents, my mom and my country.
But I hate the government who rules it, so much. For over a decade. Maybe two. And sometimes i blur the lines between hating the people who cheat and lie to the rakyat, and the entire nation itself. There are times i made mistakes and made myself a fool in your eyes. I am not proud of them.
But yesterday i decided that i will perform the minimal duty as a Malaysian citizen. I drove back to my hometown, Seremban, to vote. Together with my mom. I was proud that i did. For the first time i feel that i actually did something for my country, other than promoting Nasi Lemak on Instagram.
But some people in this country lied and cheated us for their own selfish benefits and unjust victory.
I am so heartbroken.
I feel so sad for people who fought so hard for this country. I feel despaired for my family who has been wanting for a better future since 4 elections ago. I feel sad for the brave leaders who have fought all their lives for the rakyat just to be defeated by pure evil, corrupted powers. I am horrified that this is where my future child’s will grow up in. All these injustice is driving everyone around me crazy.
I feel cheated that all our 5 years of wistful hope for a better Malaysia, has just unceremoniously come to an end like this, and what comes is another 5 years of uncertainty.
I am not even in touch with the whole politics scene enough to comment on it, nor know what’s gonna happen after this. And it would be wrong to sound so negative and say that we have lost all hope and let’s get the hell out of here, just because we are blinded by rage and disappointment. Some of my friends have been extremely positive, and said keep having faith and let’s do it slowly. And i am extremely touched by that.
And i can only hope that the new (old) government realizes how powerful we rakyat have become, and feel compelled to be more careful and do a better job the next five years. Although i think i hardly have the patience for that when there’s already enough crazy things going around.
On a happier note, the danna and i are flying off for a one-month Weddingmoon in Santorini and other parts of Europe. And then after that we will be back to Japan for a short while.
Let me be an escapist for awhile. Let me go away and cling my happiness onto what i love the so much. And thinking about that alone makes me happy. After all what is better than being able to be together with the one who matters to you the most?
I am still an incredibly lucky girl. Presented with choices in her life.
And for that i am thankful enough. Thank you Malaysia and i hope the best for all of us Malaysians.
This is a #backinJapan post!
Rinrin and i joined number76 Omotesando’s hanami (sakura viewing) at this park near Ghibli Studio during (almost finishing) sakura season. It was one of the last few good days before the crazy storm came and blew away all the sakura.
Lake, swan boats and sakura
The entire ground in the park was covered by fallen sakura it was like a giant pink carpet.
Our picnic spot!!
Gomi san! She always does my hair when i go to number76 in Japan! ^^
Snatched a good spot
Sakura Miku bun i grabbed on the way to the park!
Other food we have! (Pizzas, Yakitori, beeeeeeeer)
Extra pizza topping!!!
By the way sakura was falling crazy like it’s snowing pink from the sky. Was quite an amazingly pretty sight, although quite cold still.
Gomi san, RinRin and i made this!
Tsubaki chan! She came to Malaysia to intern at number76 for 3 months and she has the best working attitude ever. Love her so much!
And then after not even that many drinks, one of the stylists Yoshio decided to just pass out on the spot lololol.
We started doing face deco on him
And foot art HAHHAHAHHA
When it’s time to leave we woke him up and he puked on everybody’s shoes LOLOL. (I am laughing because i’m not the ones who kena .)
And then dunno how suddenly everyone just went crazy wtf.
They say Japanese go crazy in April because work is so stressful when they finally get to relax they become mental lol.
A bunch of uni students decided to join the madness
Anyway just when we were about to leave the said drunk hero also lost his iphone which he just bought -______-
We didn’t think it could be stolen, (although it could happen) so we came to the conclusion that it was thrown away together with all the rest of the rubbish. We just rolled the entire blue floor mat and chuck everything in the giant bin.
And since the drunk hero is too drunk to do anything, somebody else volunteer to be the scavenger wtf.
I think this person is really really really 伟大！！！
If i’m 100% sure that my iPhone is in there, i’m not even sure if i could do that wtf. Mind you the whole mat is full of fresh puke T___T
Anyway he couldn’t find the phone after all so we left quite disappointed.
The senior’s hanami is so different hahahha.
So Yoshio thought he lost his phone, but the next day he found it, because apparently somebody picked it up and took it to the nearest police station at the park.
So this world still got hope. Hahahha.

The end date is June 2, Sunday night at 12:00am. ^^
On my birthday this year, the danna took a couple of days off. Both of us are not the gifts type of person. We sort of reached an unspoken understanding where we won’t have to go through the headache of what to buy each other during special occasions, but to decide together for a small holiday somewhere.
Last year we went to Okinawa, and this year we both wanted to travel up north to Tohoku.
The main reason was really just to give Tohoku some support. I have heard and seen heartbreaking interviews about how bad the people in the disaster areas after 311 have to struggle for a living, and every damn time it bring me to tears. Although just us visiting the area per se would not change anything about the people’s lives in Tohoku, i hope at least the presence of some tourists there will encourage the people there to hold on and persevere , or at least even just a little smile and brighten up their day.
So we have chosen Sendai, (Miyagi Prefecture) which takes about 4-5 hours drive from Tokyo.
We passed by Sano rest area for breakfast!
In Tokyo the sakura were almost all gone that time, and in Sano, it was still full bloom! But further up north, they weren’t even blooming for another week, so this whole sakura thing was really really tricky. You need a lot of luck!
Such a beautiful and happy sight :3
This is one of the cutest mascots i’ve seen in Japan!!!
Sano is famous for ramen so it has got a bowl as hat and the fella’s hair is made of ramen lolol
Tamago Kake Gohan (plain rice with raw egg) only 300 yen!
This is a complete meal that puts a big big smile on me every time
I can eat this for the rest of my life T____________T
There was also an ichigo (strawberry) fair!!
Tochigi (te prefecture we were in) is quite famous for its Tochiotome strawberries! Although i still prefer Amao from Fukuoka
Tochigi limited Tochiotome Strawbie Kitkat!
Make a wish
Tochigi limited phone strap
After breakfast we continued our journey to Sendai (2-3 hours drive). The weather was not very good, it was raining throughout
Reached the central station.
The whole mall was deco in pink for sakura season.
To be honest there isn’t much touristy things to do in Sendai. But just like everywhere else, it has its own food specialty, and it is Gyu Tan (ox tongue).
“The Gyutan Street”
There was at least 5-6 Gyutan specialty shop, and we had a hard time deciding which one to go. The most famous one obviously had a long queue outside but we wanted to be hipsters so we went into another quiter one lol
Grilled ox tongue atsukiri (thickly sliced)
Tofu with ox tongue mince
And clear soup.
It was soooooo goooood. T____T
And then we went souvenir shopping!
The famous “Sea Treasure” box
This is a Tohoku limited, it’s not matcha or wasabi!! It’s this thingie called “zunda”. In the picture is Zunda Mochi.
It looks like Edamame, and to me it tastes like pandan wtf.
And the most famous Sendai custard snack called Hagi No Tsuki.
After shopping, we went and check in to our hotel!
Or rather, our Ryokan, a traditional Japanese style hotel, normally comes with hotsprings ^^
If you happen to travel to the suburb and haven’t experienced ryokan before, it’s highly recommended, because it’s my FAV type of accommodation ever!
First of all it looks like this:
Where is the bed… right?
Well, once you check in, the hotel staff in traditional yukata will come and serve you light snack and tea, and then you get to relax. they will come back shortly after to help you arrange the tatami bed (where the table belongs), and tatami bed is the mostestestestest comfortable thing ever during winter.
Another thing i love about ryokan is that everyone in the hotel practices traditional Japanese etiquette and manners, every one is unbelievably extra extra polite and when they go out of your room they have to bow on the floor wtf.
And then everybody who stays in the ryokan will change into yukata. Normally guys in green/blue and girls in pink ^^
The whole point of staying in the ryokan is really just to slooooowly relax, go to the gift shop and buy snack and beer back to the hotel to drink and watch tv, and then go to the onsen (hotspring), many many times lol.
I love going to their giftshops! Trust the Japanese to sell the most bizarre things ever, really.
When i was in Nagasaki they had Castella Cake Juice wtf.
In Sendai they have Gyutan Cider WTF.
Anyway, this ryokan that we stayed in is very famous for its natural onsen!
It has like a public big bath for men and women, another indoor onsen for men and women, a private onsen room free for rent, AND a natural hotspring outdoor.
And because it was so exclusive, it has alternate time/day for men and women to enter separately. I went in first.
There was a looooooong wooden walkway
And then a looooong wooden stair case
You walk till the end, push open the door…
It is the outdoor hotspring.
When i went there i was the only guest, so i sneaked in my phone for pictures wtf. You are welcome.
The river outside looks like this.
I swear the color is exactly like that!!! And can you see the mini waterfall? There was lots of steam coming out from it and i believe that’s where the thermal spring comes from. Directly. Into the bath. On me.
I love onsen so much, you will have the best sleep ever after a 15 min soak.
So lazy i never wear my Yukata properly lol
This ryokan has the best breakfast buffet i’ve ever had! It has like 10 counters or so making traditional Japanese food on the spot. FREE FLOW MENTAIKO AND SHISHAMO AND TAMAGO OMG
They even had a pastry chef who makes dessert on the spot for you omg i felt so spoilt and also feel super touched by the effort they put in T__T
Shishamo and mentaiko and tamagoyaki, and crap miso sou and fresh kiwi juice.
Grilled salmon and nikujaga and shirasu and natto and fresh milk.
And then onsen tamago and pink rice
I’m not sure if it is just this ryokan, but i love the suburbs in Japan because they really make so much extra effort to make your stay /experience super comfortable, be it a hotel or a restaurant. Or public toilet wtf.
A Sendai public toilet actually has wet wipes! I don’t know why i was so impressed by this lolol. I don’t think many toilets give wet wipes lo hahaha
And then the hotel room and the hotspring bathroom has like a million types of soap, face cleanser, moisturiser, toner etc etc
And then the tissue is forever folded triangle one. This was in the hotel restaurant. Right after a customer leaves the table, they waitress will immediately clean it up AND fold triangles lol
In the onsen they have sterilized hair brushes
Free hairbands for the long hair ones (me me me me me)
The sign board says they have prepared 3 different types of shampoo, you can use whichever you like. The attention to details is incredible.
When we checked out we receive an origami frog, which means safe journey back.
I know it’s trivial but i really appreciate all these super small details la…
So we had to get back to Tokyo the next day.
On the way back we passed by Kunimi rest area, in Fukushima.
I was very happy because the whole souvenir shop was full of tourists!!! (Although you can’t see it from here because it was raining so nobody stayed outside lol)
I guess there are many people just like me, travel to Fukushima just so they can give very small support for the people there, in hope that they can recover sooner
We bought our last gyutan before heading back
I bought Fukushima Hello Kitty <3
And then continue our journey back to Tokyo, and stopped by Utsunomiya for gyoza
Famous gyoza shop
Back home! Lots of souvenir from Tohoku
Oh and the sakura trees along the highway :3
Ok that’s all!
I didn’t know it would end up such a long post. Thank you for reading!
Today i’m introducing another Japanese beauty product!
I am currently taking many beauty products at the same time, including collagen drinks, placenta jelly, and now whitening also, and they are all Japanese brands because so far i’m loving all of them and so my entire kitchen is also filled with Japanese beauty products and supplement.
Today the one i want to introduce is HAKUBI WHITE C series from Sato.
Sato is a Japanese pharmaceutical company that is almost 100 years old!! I always buy over the counter flu pills for cold in the pharmacy when i was in Japan, didn’t know now they have beauty products too.
HAKUBI WHITE C is a series of products that give you whitening effect from within.
Ok speaking of whitening.
Actually if i’m quite honest i’d say i still quite 在意 (bothered) that i am so easily tanned and super hard to get fairer T__T. And i already gave up on whitening skin care products many many years ago cuz they don’t work wan. Even if they do it’s very temporary wan. T__T
Obviously just like 1000 years ago 一白遮三丑, it probably still applies until today lo. Case in point, which one better?
Haha yea that’s my original skin tone T__T
I apologize for making you feel cheated with whitening filters T___T
I see the girls in Harajuku they can do any sort of bizarre make up and still look cute and i discovered that it is because they are so damn fair. If you have quite tan skin and still die die want to apply super pale lipstick you will risk looking like prostitute or transvestite wtf.
Which is why when the danna goes surfing i will just hide inside his surfboard cover and sleep (true story) when there isn’t a shade at the beach T___T
Actually i also cannot stress enough how bad the sun is for your skin! The danna also has very bad sun spots because he goes to the sea and get exposed so often!
Anyway now i am trying:
The whitening trio!
1. HAKUBI WHITE C Drink
2. HAKUBI WHITE C Tablets
3. HAKUBI C Gel
Looks like this inside the package!
HAKUBI WHITE C DRINK
This is the fastest because it gets absorbed quicker into your system. The specially formulated essences will penetrate into every skin cell to repair skin, lightens pigmentation and helps tighten pores and lighten acne scars!
It actually has a very mild taste, a bit like energy drink minus caffeine and not very sweet! You should take one bottle a day and it only has 23kcal!!
HAKUBI WHITE C TABLETS
This is for people with severe blemishes such as freckles and pigmentation.
OMG did you know that mole can grow overnight?!?!?!?!
The other day i woke up with one very obvious spot near my chin, i swear it just grew while i slept. I dunno why it happened?!?
Anyway i am trying this tablets as it sounds very powerful! It is formulated with higher content of L-Cysteine and Vit C for enhanced skin whitening, and also Calcium Pantothenate that enhances whitening effect.
For adult, take two tablets , 3 times a day.
HAKUBI C GEL
Very very coincidentally, the day i receive this product was also the day danna ask me “do you have any cream for sunburn?” after coming back from Cherating for surfing.
And i gave him this gel and he was very happy lolol.
This is a light, cooling gel that dries quickly, help soothe sunburn and also a perfect spot-treatment for pimples and acne.
It’s not greasy nor sticky, i feel like it smells very edible though, like slightly roasted caremel… ginger cookie?! Haha
Hope the two of us will have spotless clean and fair skin soon!!
If you are in Singapore, you can get this easily at Guardian, Watsons, Unity, Nishino Pharmacy, Robinsons, John Little, Metro, SASA, Mustafa and Venus.
If you are in Malaysia, Hakubi White C Plus tablets and Hakubi White C Gel are now available in selected Sasa outlets!
Also, wanna know the good news?
Jeng jeng jeng jeng….
For those of you who always want to go to Japan, there’s your chance to win a 4D/3N trip to Tokyo for 2!
