Veet Sensitive Touch Electric Trimmer Launch

Monday, March 27, 2017


Hi my darlings merry goers~

How many of you dread the days you have to get your eyebrow waxed, plucked or threaded? Bushy eyebrows are a no no especially if you want to look presentable. Our eyebrows really play wonders on how we look, the way it shapes your face and giving out the different aura. Some like it Western style with sharp edge brows or maybe the Korean style, straight soft and natural. Anyway you still need to continuously trim those brows to achieve the look you desire.

Nearly every two months or so I would head to the nearest salon to get my eyebrows threaded and yup.. leaving the salon with sore red brows can be quite a hassle. Some of you may opt for waxing or just some DIY plucking which can be a painful experience. Well, now thanks to Veet's latest innovative gadget you  can now trim those sensitive areas (and I do mean those sensitive areas ;) ) with no pain at all.


The Veet Sensitive Touch is a new gadget launched from Veet that comes with various detachable heads to facilitate accurate and gentle hair trimming at sensitive body parts such as the eyebrows, underarms and even the bikini  line. These blades were designed specially to never touch your skin during usage; hence no risk of cuts.

No bigger than an electric toothbrush, this super slick and slim gadget can be carried in a handbag and so useful when you have certain hairy situations during the day that you need to resolve. Just imaging bumping into a cute guy only to realize your brows are so not on point! Veet Sensitive Touch is there to the rescue.


I was honored to meet Celebrity Makeup Artist Stevensunny during the launch of Veet Sensitive Touch along with Malaysian supermodel Amber Chia and got some handy tips on maintaining a well-shaped brow. Like what Steensunny says "Your eyebrows speak before yuo do.". Totally agree on these words of wisdom because like it or not, you really do not realize how important brows are to convey your identity.


Honestly, I used to be super noob about caring for my brows but ever since I learnt the importance of my brows I just cannot emphasize enough that ok maybe you don't like putting makeup but please at least make sure your brows are on point. Now with the Veet Sensitive Touch, it is so suitable for all brow types and skill levels and I just love all the additional heads you can use especially the comb! I always worry about over trimming my brows but with the bomb head, I can adjust the length of the hair to trim. No more worries about bald eyebrows.


Amber Chia also sang praises about the Veet Sensitive Touch and how it really helped maintaining the brows so much easier. No more painful and time consuming sessions with a tweezer.


Each Veet Sensitive Touch comes with one beauty styler, one two-sided precision head for optimal eyebrow shaping, one bikini trimming head, two comb attachments, one styler cap, one cleaning brush, and one beauty pouch. The device runs on an AA battery, which is included in the packaging too. Veet Sensitive Touch retails at RM119.00 at major pharmacies nationwide and online retailers.

Stay tune for a more detailed review of this nifty gadget :)

Perfectly Parisian Dining Experience at Le Pont Sri Petaling Review

Saturday, March 11, 2017



Hi my dear merry goers,

Savor French casual fine dining cuisines without travelling to Paris at Le Pont. Since opening its doors 2 years ago, Le Pont  has impressed many with its authentic presentation of  French casual fine dining in a spacious and elegant environment. They recently reveled their latest menu themed 'Paris Parfait' which is the labour of love of the chefs at Le Pont.

Thanks to Le Pont for inviting me to try their latest menu which included main courses and desserts to share plus a hidden surprise. Read on to find out Le Pont's latest addition which will literally bring you out of this world.


We started off on trying some of the baked goods available in the bakery section of Le Pont. Fragrant baked goods remind me of the time I was in Paris especially freshly baked baguettes, buttery croissants and sweet treats. No doubt, the pastry at Le Pont do not disappoint and were a pleasure to enjoy.
Rich aromatic chicken broth infused with herbs, grilled leek and topped with shredded chicken was a warm appetizer at Le Pont. Their Chicken  Leek Soup (RM11.90) was served with house-made soft roll bun which was a joy to dip and soak up all the creamy goodness. I had to remind myself that I still had several main courses to go to stop myself from finishing the whole bowl.


Under the main course section, there are Cheesy Baked Escargot, Fish Pesto Raisin Rice, Fish Papillote and Lemon Caper Chicken. Escargot (RM24.90) is surely one of the delicacies you can enjoy in France which unfortunately I missed out when I was in Paris but now you can enjoy it here at Le Pont. Half dozen escargot were baked in cheese and garlic cream sauce, spinach and a hidden surprise; a slow cooked egg which still had a runny yolk. This dish was creamy and flavorful but did not overpower the flavor from the escargot. The yolk added more creamy goodness and brought out the aroma from the cheese garlic sauce. Served on the side were some crispy garlic bread, cut into slices and the perfect size to dip into the sauce.

(p/s: yes.. escargot are snails and no I have no qualms about eating snails. Well technically I hardly have any problems eating any thing edible so.... )


Next we were served with the Lemon Caper Chicken (RM32.90) which had a HUGE crisp pan-fried chicken whole leg! The chicken leg which literally took up the whole plate was pressured cooked with lemon caper sauce and anchovies until tender. Still retaining its juices, the flavors were well infused into the chicken making it an enjoyable dish to dig in. Served on the side were some roasted potatoes and ratatouille which I attacked because it was so good. I always think of the Pixar movie Ratatouille when I eat this dish and who can forget the amazing although cartoon dish?


Moving on to the next main dish which was my favourite dish of the day, the Fish Papillote (RM25.90) The white tuna cooked sous vide style in parchment paper was so flavourful baked with onions, carrots, leek, button mushrooms, dill and lemon. I realise my taste buds are heading towards healthier choices and this dish really hit the spot. The white tuna was not too dry and the flavors from the lemon and the dill were very well infused. I would definitely come back just for this dish.

The last main dish to land on our table was the Fish Pesto Raisin  Rice (24.90). Crispy battered fish fillet was served on top of pesto raisin basmati rice, sauteed vegetable and  garlic aioli. Unfortunately this wasn't one of my preferred dish as the overall dish can get a bit too oily and heavy for my liking. The pesto sauce was good although a bit oily but the garlic aioli was enjoyable paired with the battered fish. 

As our meal comes to an end, it's time for DESSERTS! No matter how crazy my diet it, good desserts still tempt me. With three desserts served, my favourite is the Lychee & Earl Grey Ice (RM13.90). It was a refreshing blend of homemade vanilla ice cream, earl grey ice, earl grey jelly and sliced lychee. I loved how the creaminess of the ice cream blends so well with the earl grey ice and jelly plus the sliced lychee giving it some additional texture in it. Not only the presentation was pretty, the taste was a light dessert to end the meal.


For those who love churros, you might just enjoy the Churros Mania (RM14.90) with crispy churros coated with sprinkling of orange zest and cinnamon sugar. With four different unique dips, make sure you try with their chocolate sauce which has a hint of espresso in it giving it a slightly bitter aftertaste. 

The Chocolat au Coulant (RM19.90) is unique version of a molten lava cake but using a biscuit base. This gives it a slightly drier texture but so good with the velvety chocolate filling and served with their homemade ice cream. Just love breaking into the the cake and see that molten goodness oozing out. The warm and cold sensation was just mmmm.... so good

Now here's the special surprise Le Pont has in store for you. They are currently offering diners an exciting and out-of-the-world VR  (Virtual Reality) Experience when you dine there in March. All you have to do it to order their special Tea Set Menu for RM39.90 and enjoy their in-house VR experience for free. 


The tea set serves 2 and comes in pairs with several sweet and savoury delicacies. Sweet items include Creme Catalane Poachh Strawberries, Passion Tarts,Salted  Peanut Mud Cake, Cracqueline aux chouz with creme pattiserie and macaron while the savoury items are Cucumber Raita, Deep Fried  Cheese with Bacon, Prawn Yogurt in Puff Pastry and Tuna Mayo Soft Roll Bun

I had a lot of fun trying the VR experience and I really felt like I was transported some where else. You really need to go try this though I do hope that there will be more selections for VR location. 

Le Pont Mystery Gift


In conjunction with the launch of its new menu, Le Pont also rewards diners with a special Mystery Gift promo. All they have to do is snap a picture of Le Pont’s new menu, check in at Le Pont Sri Petaling or Le Pont Old Klang Road and post the picture on their Facebook or Instagram page with the hashtags #LePontNewMenu2017 #SousVide #ArtisanDesserts. Once they show the service crew their post, they will instantly receive a free Mystery Gift. And best of all, there is no limit to the number of gifts they can get – the more the post, the more they take home!

Print Out Memories with Pixajoy Photobook

Thursday, March 09, 2017



Hello darlings~

While going through the gazillion photos from my recent Europe trip, I can help to not be satisfied just seeing them on my phone or computer. Photos and memories are best captured in print so I have been looking around to see which is the best option to print out my photos.


I remember a few years back, I customized several photobooks when they were the 'IN' thing and was pretty satisfied with how it turned out. But during that time, doing it on the desktop can be quite a bother especially when I am always on the go and do not have much time to work on customizing it.

Luckily for me, Pixajoy now has a mobile app where I can create my own photobook project from the photos in my phone. This means I can do this anywhere and anytime when I am free! Being able to work from my phone makes things so easy and honestly, printing out photos and being to customize it as you like is a great decision. Here's the super easy step-by-step tutorial so that you guys can also print out your memories and keep it.  



First, download the Pixajoy app from the Google Play Store. You'll be able to choose between the generic template already provided or download some from their store. For those of you who are much more creative, you can just customize the template on your own. For me, I just downloaded some of the templates that I liked and customized them to my liking. 


Next, you just have to select your photos, edit them and fit them according to your template as you like them to be. Add wordings, stickers, doodles and just go fun on them! Remember, these are your memories. I seriously had quite a hard time deciding the photos I want included in this photobook but I do have 36 pages so.... spamming photos is just a bliss.


After you're done and satisfied with your project, it's time to send it to your cart, pay and just wait for it to be delivered to you. It's great how Pixajoy uses MOLPay or MOLPay Mobile XDK for the payment method because it is just so simple to make my purchase. I honestly hate making troublesome payments so it's great how hassle free and simple the payment procedure is. 

Not only that, you only need to key in once your personal details and it will appear on your payment page details when you pay. No more needing to key in over and over again your details especially for long addresses. And there you have it, just make your payment and it's tim e to wait for your beautiful project to arrive. I can't wait to see how my photobook turns out!

Now here's a bonus for you! Get your very own Mini Softcover 6"x 6" Photobook (36 Pages) at only RM4.90 instead of RM69 when you use my discount code: MERRYPHOTOBOOK. This voucher code will be valid until 30 September 2017 and only one (1) photobook purchase per account. 

So go, print out those memories and get them the super simple and easy way with MOLPay Mobile XDK too

Til next time,

    5 Reasons Why Althea Beauty Box Are a Must Buy

    Saturday, March 04, 2017


    Hey my darling merry goers~

    Going through my blog posts, I realised how much I once used to blog a lot on beauty products and of course everything actually started on that particular topic itself. From beauty reviews to beauty boxes, there have been countless products that I've tried and I've always tried to give my best reviews of them.

    There was once when beauty boxes were the "IN" thing.. where so many brands and online websites started offering beauty boxes although mostly are sample products etc. I've recently come across another beauty box that I must say have got to be one of the best beauty boxes that I will recommend which is the Althea Beauty Boxes.

    Ever since Althea became available in Malaysia, that's where I get my makeup needs with hauls after hauls. They have tons of Korean beauty products and brands that you cannot find in Malaysia plus it is always at the best prices. They recently started offering Beauty Boxes with different themes from Makeup needs to even Skincare which are so worth the buck. 

    Here's my TOP 5 Reasons why you should DEFINITELY get them.

    1. Best Value For Money Box


    Can you just imagine getting more than RM400 worth of products for only roughly RM100? That's like super amazing discounts. I got my hands on the Althea Anti-Pollution Box before they were sold out and it had 7 full sized items in it. Like seriously, where can you find a box with so many  full sized skin care products for only  RM139? 

    2. Best for Beginners

    I would really recommend you trying out some of their Beauty Boxes especially if you are new to skincare and makeup. You really get a whole lot of selection and you can try  them out before repurchasing the products that you love. With  7 Full Sized products, this is like my entire skincare regime. The Althea Anti Pollution Box has from a  Cleansing Balm, Cleansing Water, Cleansing Foam, Toner, Moisturizer and even a Mask and Sun Screen! 

    3. Best Recommended Korean Brand


    Getting the Althea Beauty Box means you actually can try new Korean brands that is not available in Malaysia. Like for myself, sometimes I wouldn't know what brands or product will work well for me. Also, Althea actually packs the best products in each of the themed box so that you can try if the product works well for you before you decide to repurchase. For myself, I just fell in love with ONSAEMEEIN Perfect Moisture Cream. If you guys are looking for the perfect moisturizer to use in this humid Malaysian weather, you should really try this moisturizer. I'm not a fan of cream and tend to go for gel products because cream products can really make my skin get really oily. Now this cream is just magic.. it looks like a regular cream but once you apply it on your face, it just turns into water and absorbs into your skin immediately! No oily residue at all and it keeps my skin really moisturized without turning it oily. I'm definitely repurchasing this once I run out of this jar but I doubt it would be anytime soon since it is a full sized product

    4. Best Themed Beauty Box 


    As I mentioned earlier, Althea has themed beauty boxes ranging from skincare to makeup products. The Althea Anti-Pollution Beauty Box is actually the 12th beauty box and helps fight against the polluted environment our skin is exposed to. As you know, Malaysia has this particular season which is... HAZE and during this time, our skin is exposed greatly to dust and particles. The Anti-Pollution Box caters to everything from removing makeup and even extra care with the Skinfood Bitter Green Soothing Mask. I've been using the whole box for my skincare regime the past month and have been loving it. After coming back from Europe, I really feel the effect of the polluted air compared to the clean air in Amsterdam. 


    Cleansing my skin every night has never been easier especially with the CALMIA Rooibos Cleansing Water. The bubbles from the sparkling water effectively removes the fine dust from my skin ensuring that there isn't any makeup residue left on my skin which can clog up my pores. I then follow up with the ETUDE HOUSE Wonder Pore Freshener which I have been meaning to try out but since it is in such a huge bottle, I never really got it to try. Now thanks to the Althea Anti Pollution Box, I can give it a try and it is quite a good toner. I actually like using it as a spray during the day to freshen up.


    When I have more makeup on my face, the HOPEGIRL Jamong Cleansing Balm is perfect to melt it all away and cleanse my face. Love the grapefruit extract that protects my skin while cleansing it with just a minimal amount. Just look at how well it removes my makeup. Even waterproof makeup can be removed although you would need to rub it a bit more. Plus.. how can you not love that packaging? So cute!


    I follow up with the MISSHA Deep Cleansing Foam which after using it really cleans up my pores but does not strip too much moisture off my skin. It has a slight fragrance and you have to mix it with a bit of water to make it foam up. 

    5. Best...

    Honestly I have run out of any more reasons on why you should just get onto www.althea.kr and check out their beauty boxes because there ain't no reasons why you shouldn't. It's your all-in-one beauty box that is specially selected and curated to meet your specific needs plus there is FREE DELIVERY for purchases above RM150. You no longer have to fly to Korea or pay expensive shipping fee plus it will be delivered straight to your doorstep. 

    Here's an additional BONUS for you! Just click HERE and get and additional RM5 + RM30 discount when you sign up as a new member. That's an additional RM35 discount off your purchase. So what are you waiting for? Go check Althea Korea now and I assure that you will just get addicted shopping on this site.
