K-Beauty Haul | Hermo

Hey girls! If you always on the search for K-beauty products, you might wanna read on to find out about my new fav place for shopping K-beauty items online.

Before that, I wrote bout Althea website where they sell K-beauty items in my previous post. You may click this link to see my K-Beauty Haul with Althea.

So today I'm gonna share about new shopping website that got me hooked which is Hermo. The website concept is similar like Althea where they sell K-beauty items however Hermo not only sell K-beauty products but also other beauty products around the world. What suprise me more is Hermo based in Malaysia. Wehoo! I'm expecting fast delivery and Hermo never let me down babe :) The shipping fee also FOC if you buy 2 items or more. I fall in love at first sight with Hermo is simply because they sell almost all K-beauty brands here. Just name the brand and Hermo will deliver it right to your door.


Sneak peek of Hermo website




I'm so happy when I realize Hermo sell Cosrx items. Cosrx is currently my favs brand after Innisfree and of course I noticed about this brand thru my fav youtubers, Joan Kim. This brand will definitely be your BFF if you're dealing with acne, blackkhead/whitehead, breakouts and uneven skin tone. 

Let's have a quick look what I've gotten from Hermo! Ohh ya, products that I shared below is not my 1st haul with Hermo. I believe this is my 4th-6th haul, I guess. I can't remember. I told you earlier, this website make me crazyyyy!


  • Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask | MYR59
  • Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid | MYR72
  • Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid | MYR59
  • Neogen Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser | MYR95





  • Laneige BB Cushion SPF50+, Cushion Refill & Cushion Puff | MYR79
  • Petitfee Gold & EGF Eye & Spot Patch | MYR26
  • Yadah BFF Gift Kit [5xYadah sheet mask, 5xYadah Sunblock 1ml | MYR25


Last month, Hermo do CRAZY Promotion on all Cosrx items since its COSRX 1st Anniversary! Wehoo \o/  I'm so happy since I manage to grab my wishlist items under Cosrx with cheap price.

  • Cosrx One Step Mouisture Up Pads | MYR89 
  • Cosrx Special Pack, Bye Bye Blemish! | MYR79
           - Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch  x 2
           - Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads
  • Cosrx Anniversary GWP Mr RX set | FREE
If you ask me, which website is better to purchase K-beauty products, Althea or Hermo? I think both website provide excellent service to me. However, I prefer purchase K-beauty items at Hermo since the delivery period is shorter compared to Althea. It took only 2 days for me to receive parcel from Hermo whereas parcel from Althea normally took 1 week since the parcel shipped directly from South Korea. In term of packaging, Althea have better packaging and their box can be used as your vanity storage box later on. As for price, I noticed some products sold at Althea is much cheaper than Hermo. However, Hermo offer variety of products compared to Althea. So, I leave it to you to decide. Overall, both website make me broke! HAHAHAH 😂

Last but not least, if you're keen about getting the latest K-beauty products, do have a look what Hermo MY has to offer also don't forget to follow their Instagram & Facebook for regular giveaways + discounts!

PS: Price listed above still not include 6% GST ;)




Thanks for reading! ♥︎

Love,

Singapore | USS Trip

USS Trip is one of my travel wish-list and last year I managed to fulfil it. Yay!

In beginning, I plan to do one day trip to USS. But later, my travel buddies and I decided to explore  other parts of Singapore instead of one day trip to USS. We book one way ticket flight to Singapore since we want to stop by at Johor Bharu before going back to KL. Below is our itinerary for 2Days 1Night at Singapore.

#Day 1- 05 August 2016, Friday

0610
KLIA 2 - Changi International Airport, Singapore

0715
Arrive at Singapore

0900
After breakfast and rest for a while, we went straight to USS.  It's quite confusing actually to go to USS from Changi Airport since we have to transit from one station to other station. Luckily we study beforehand the directions from Changi Airport to USS. You can refer the directions from this blog; azyyatiliah.blogspot.my. Thank you for your tips! Btw, we buy EZ Link card to accommodate our Singapore trip. Later, I'll explain why we choose EZ Link Card compared to Singapore Tourist Pass (STP)

1100
Arrive at USS. Yay, finally we are here! Ohh ya. Since we don't check in to our hotel before went to USS, so we keep our backpack in locker outside USS. It's much cheaper compared to locker inside the USS. We also don't bring any handphone or purse because everything must be keep inside the locker nearby while we playing and definitely it will cost us a lot of moneyyyyyyy. Hahaha. We spent almost 7 hours at USS yet we unable to explore all the games. Here are some tips for those who want to come here:

1. Don't forget to take USS Guide Map to guide you about directions and attractions around USS.

2.  If you have extra money, buy Express Pass since some places you have to que more than 1 hours which waste of time. But, if you were on tight budget, you can choose Single Rider lines instead of normal rider. Single rider lines normally have shorter waiting time since empty seats on the ride are filled using people from this line.

3. Go for popular attractions first like Transformers The Ride, Battlestar Galactica Human/ Cyclon, Jurassic Parks and Revenge of The Mummy before they get crowded.  Don't waste your time to play Madagascar unless you bring kids along.

4. Its quite difficult to find Halal food here. So don't forget to bring foods like bread etc or if uolls went directly from airport to here like us, uolls can book in-flight meal.

4. Surau is located nearby Ancient Egypt. The prayer room is quite small. Bring along your "telekung", ladies.

5. Wear ponchos or raincoat when you ride "Jurassic Park Adventure Ride" since you might get wet. If you dont want to bring, no worries. They also sell raincoat outside the theme park and provide drying pods but of course all of these will cost you money. Hiks!

Ohh ya we don't have many picture at USS since we left everything including our mobile phone in our locker. We decide to capture our moments here in our heart, hiks! No la, weolls nak jimat since most rides tak leh bring along henpon. Semua benda kena simpan dlm locker outside the ride. Kalo free tape la, ini pakai duit bebeh. Menangis!


Why so serious? Hahaha

1900
We are so tired and hungry after having so much fun at USS. So we decided to head to our hotel and rest for good. But before that, we stop by at VivoCity for our lunch+dinner. Actually it took some time for us to find halal food @VivoCity. We don't have internet connection at Singapore, so its quite difficult for us to browse a place to eat. We depend on free wireless only. Nak jimat punya pasai! Hahaha. So when we saw Halal certifiicate at BurgerKing, we never ever look back again :) People say never convert to MYR when travelling but I can't simply do that. Im crying while eating the burger. Sobbs T.T

2100
Finally, we arrive at our hotel. We stay at Mitra Inn which located in Little India and 5-7minutes walk from Farrer Park MRT Station. I really love this hotel. Even though its budget hotel, the room is so clean with private bathroom. Free wifi plus breakfast yaw! Directions from USS to Mitra Inn is as follows:
  • Board Sentosa Express toward VivoCity/Sentosa Station and alight at Sentosa Station
  • Board MRT towards Punggol Station and alight at Farrer Park MRT Station
  • Take Exit G and walk straight along Serangoon Road and you will see Mitra Inn on the left side of the road after Shell station. FYI, Serangoon Road is on your right side when you see City Square Mall in front of you.
2200
Time to sleep. Its gonna be a long day tomorrow.


I will stop here for now. I'll share #Day2 at Singapore in my next blog post.

Althea Haul | K-Beauty Products

Hi guys! I have been delaying this post for a while.  Today, I want to share my online shopping experience with Althea.  So, how I met Althea? It all started when I want to buy Rice Mask from SkinFood but it already sold out in their store. I went back home and I was casually browsing the internet to dig more on website that sell SkinFood Rice Mask. You can guess the rest, rite?  



With its slogan "Beauty meets Korea", Althea was founded to bridge authentic K-beauty to SEA. where it provide one stop shopping destination for SEA consumers to enjoy K-beauty products at reasonable price - Frank Kang, CEO Althea. All products in Althea is directly hand-picked and packed from Althea warehouse in Korea. Previously, Althea offers free shipping for purchase above MYR150 but now it has been reduced to MYR99. 

The packaging are to die for 💕 When this parcel reach my hand, it took me quite some time to open it because it's nicely wrap in SHOCKING PINK plastic courier bag. Cantik sangatttt! and its doesn't stop here because once you open the plastic wrap, Althea surprise you again with its beautiful Pink Beauty Box. OMG! 😍



All items were nicely wrapped in bubble wrap. Thumbs up! So, for my first haul with Althea, I managed to grab 6 items. Yay!


Please bear in mind the parcel normally takes 10 to 15 days to reach your doorstep since Althea shipped DIRECTLY from Korea.  As for mine, it took only one week. Once you make payment, Althea will provide you with tracking no so you can know your parcel's whereabout.


I guess you will noticed that I ordered with Althea on March and now is December. I told you, I've been delaying to write this post. Hahaha 😂 Now, let see what I got. Stop blabbering, nieya!


SkinFood Rice Mask Wash Off | MYR26

Main reason why I ordered with Althea. This mask said to help transform skin into a pure and soft texture. I wanted to buy this cause my favs Youtuber: Joan Kim gave a good review on this. I've been using this mask a few times and totally love with its smell and texture. 


 SkinFood Black Sugar Wash Off | MYR26

A mask that contains mineral-enriched Brazilian Black Sugar and promotes smooth, glowing skin. So far my skin still not glowing. Ahahahaha. Probably because I seldom use this mask 😅


Banila Co. Prime Primer Classic | MYR55

Its more or less similar with other primer which help minimise the appearance of shines, pores and create a smooth canvas for flawless makeup application. It's very lightweight and non sticky. The only primer that I have rite now. 


TheFaceShop Dual Veil Concealer #201 Apricot Beige | MYR30

Brilliant! I love the concept where both stick and liquid concealer in one tube. Oh yes, this one I bought on behalf of my friend so I can't comment whether this concealer provides great coverage or not.



Innsifree Vivid Tint Rouge #06 Cocktail Pink | MYR34

This one I bought on behalf of my friend too but later I bought this lip tint for my own collection at Innisfree Retail Store (MYR40+). K-Beauty FunFact #1 Buying online is much cheaper than in-store.  Trust me! I love its fruity texture and its help to moisturise my lips. Every time I apply it on my lips, I can smell and taste the cherries. Too bad Innisfree has discontinued this product. Last week I went to Innisfree store to repurchase the lip tint and sales assistant there told me bout this bad news. I've checked all K-beauty website too. No more Innsifree Vivid Tint Rouge! T.T



 Tony Moly New Delight Tony Tint #02 Red | FREE

Yup! I got this one for FREE. One of attractive ways from Althea to impulse buying among its consumers. Beside free gift, Althea also do promotion 1+1 a.k.a Daebak Deal and much more! I like the colour but this lip tint dry up my lips. Repurchase? Nope.

That's all. Let me know if you have tried all this products or you have better recommendation for me.
Check out below links to find out more! Till we meet next time. Daaa!

5 Tips When Travelling In Cambodia & Vietnam

In my previous post, I share about my itinerary and budget on my IndoChina Trip (Cambodia & Vietnam). FYI, this trip is actually my first oversea trip. So, i’m super duper excited to travel here. Today I decided to share 5 tips when travelling in Cambodia & Vietnam.


#1 Buy Local Prepaid Sim Card

If you want to post your picture on Instagram, Facebook, etc, and keep in touch with le familia while travelling at Cambodia, you MUST buy local sim card. I prefer to buy local sim card compared to do roaming since its much cheaper. It only cost me about USD2 for Unlimited Internet for 3 days. I’m sorry I can’t remember the network name. But no worries since there will be a lot of kiosk that sell the prepaid & postpaid sim card at the Siem Reap Airport. As for Vietnam, we only use WIFI at our hotel (jimat duit utk shopping kononnya, hahahah)

#2 Tuk Tuk- Cambodia

Tuk tuk is the most popular transportation mode used by tourists in Cambodia. Tuk tuk is like trishaw but it can fit up to 4-5 person. We book in advance Tuk Tuk services in Siem Reap with Salim. Salim is recommended Tuk Tuk driver and tourist guide by most Malaysian bloggers. He’s Muslim and he also can speak Malay. Thus, we don’t have to worry about finding halal food in Siem Reap. He’s nice person too. If you guys want to use his service, you can contact him through this email: limangkor@yahoo.com or HP no: (+855)78 99 68 40,(+855)12 25 65 03.

Our conversation with Salim. See, he can speak Malay well :)

Excited! First time naik Tuk Tuk ^^

We also use Tuk Tuk to visit places around Phnom Penh. However, this time around we simply pick any Tuk Tuk around our hotel in Phnom Penh. It’s better for you to survey the price beforehand so you have an idea how much cost of the trip (takut kena tipu). Oh yes, cost for Tuk Tuk in Phnom Penh is much higher compared to Siem Reap since it’s the city of Cambodia. You can check expenses on Tuk Tuk during our trip here.

#3 Bargain bargain bargain!

Yes, things are cheap in Cambodia and Vietnam but you have to bargain to get the best price from the seller. Pretend that you are not interested to buy it at normal price. Trust me, few seconds later the seller will ask you how much you are willing to pay for the items. Remember to answer with the lowest price so if the seller don’t agree, he or she still will offer you with the lower price than original price. 

Most people also share this in their blog. Yupp. Go to Ben Thanh Market early in the morning to get the best price. The seller in Vietnam believe first customer will bring them luck and prosperity. WARNING! If you go to Ben Thanh Night Market and seller there try to lure you to buy their goods, run for your life hahaha cause if you don’t buy anything, he or she will MAD at you. Stop only at stall where you interested to buy something there.

#4 Enjoy local foods

Don't miss to enjoy local foods at place that you travel to. Here are some good foods that you can try at Cambodia and Vietnam:

Halal Restaurant in Siem Reap
  • Cambodian Muslim Restaurant
  • Muslim Family Restaurant
 Cow goes up the hill! Yup that's the dish name

Tom Yum (left)  and Lok Lak Beef  (right), hahahah the name is too funny if you ask me.


Halal Restaurant in Phnom Penh

Since our Tuk Tuk driver in Phnom Penh is not a Muslim, its quite difficult for us to find Halal Foods here. But Alhamdulillah, we manage to find one Halal restaurant nearby our hotel through this blog. Thank you, Yafieda! 


Halal Restaurant in HCM, Vietnam

There is plenty of Halal Restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City (along Ben Thant Market). Most popular one is Hajah Basiroh.

Most Popular dish in Vietnam: Pho. 
Similar look with our Bihun Sup but the taste is slightly different.

Must Try! Kopi Vietnam Thorbaikkk 
*Google Image*

#5 Have fun!

Visit as many as possible tourist attraction while you travel and yes don’t forget to have fun! Nowadays, everything is at your fingertip. Simply google about place that you want to visit and google will do its magic, hiks! Anyway, I will share with uolls some places that I visit during my trip on my next post.

Till then, Xoxo.

Innisfree Haul

Hey guys! Its been a while since my last post. I hope everyone is doing well :)

Today I want to share about my Innsifree Haul, yeay! I bet not everyone know about this brand, rite? Innisfree is the first nature brand from Korea and the products are mostly made of natural ingredients from Jeju Island such as Jeju Green Tea, Jeju Volcano, etc. 

To be honest, I also just noticed about this brand few weeks ago. I stumbled on this brand while browsing videos from my favourite you-tubers so from that I video, I start google about Innisfree and yeah immediately I fall in love with Innisfree. Most people also give a good reviews about it which make me decided to give myself a try. I also like the green concept of Innisfree (bonus point!)

At first I want to buy Innisfree's products through its global shopping site (Innisfree World) but then I decided to buy the products at Innisfree store. Currently, there is only one three Innisfree store in Malaysia which located at Sunway Pyramid, Paradigm Mall and Pavilion. Last week, I went to Innisfree Sunway Pyramid with my friend and yeah I'm so so happy that I manage to buy all my to-try lists. So what is my Innisfree's to-try list? Lets check it out!


Big paper bag full of Innisfree love :)

It didn't take a long for me to set up the list. I choose products that can help me to tighten my pores, reduce my blackheads and even my skin tone. So, shall we begin? ^^



A gift from me to me, hiks!




Korea No. 1 Mask! 


I love sheet mask and a lot of people do since its super easy and convenient. I believe It's Real Squeeze Mask from Innsifree is the cheapest sheet mask in the town. It only cost me RM4 per sheet compared to other popular brand which normally sold at price RM6 and above.  I'm totally gonna buy this again ^^ (Tell me if there is other brand that sell sheet mask cheaper than this, hehe)



Jeju Volcanic Set

The next product that I'm excited about is products made of Jeju Volcanic. Actually, I just want to buy Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask but then I went a little crazy after I saw this Jeju Volcanic Set. So, I decided to buy this set which cost me only RM84. From this set, I get Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack and Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm.  I already tried the Super Volcanic Clay Mask and yeah I'm super duper love it. It has cooling effects btw. This set is really good for someone that concerned about pores or blackheads/whitehead.




Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam (RM35)- I've tried many others product yet there are no changes on my pores and blackheads/whiteheads, so I thought it would be great to try this on myself.  So far, I really love the smell and I notice that my skin feels super smooth after use it :')

Who doesn't love free gift, rite? One of the benefits shopping at Korean Beauty Store is they always give you free gift/sample. I got free gift too, not one but two gifts hehehe. I got the first gift because I sign up as member and definitely I sign up for free, hahahah.



Innisfree Best Loved Collection

These three items is the best seller at Innisfree. Look! Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is one of the best seller. *Claps claps* I'm so happy when I look inside this beautiful box cause it give me a chance to try some of Innisfree best seller like Green Tea Seed Serum and Orchid Enriched Cream :)) My next Innsifree to-buy list probably will be Green Tea Seed Serum. This serum seriously smell heavenly and it helps to moisturize and hydrate your skin. I've actually been using this serum for a few times at night and I gotta say I'm liking it so far! As for Orchid Enriched Cream, it is an anti-aging cream that smooths wrinkles, brightens, nourishes and tightens skin. I should buy this one for my mom next time, hiks!

Yes, Innisfree did take away my money! Sobss. However, since I spent more than RM100, Innsifree give me another free gifts. Me loikeee it! 


Jeju Sparkling Mineral- This one is new products line that launched by Innisfree in last March 2015.  Most people give good reviews bout this too. I'm yet to try any of them. but this line does look promising!

Yeahhh, that's a wrap for my entry! Btw, have you tried any of these products or other products from Innisfree? Would love to hear your thoughts about Innisfree too :)

InsyaAllah, I'll be back with my Innisfree Review soon!
