Can't wait to share with you guys my day trip to Freeport A'Famosa Outlet that was just opened on last month. A new place to shop for branded stuff like Nike, Forever 21, Cotton On, G2000, Puma and more with discounted price up to 80%, hooray! 40 bloggers were invited to explore the place and I'm happy to be one of them. 

   Freeport A'Famosa is surrounded by rolling hills and spectacular scenic greenery. It is strategically located 30mins from Malacca and 55mins from Sungai Besi Toll. 


   Premium Softserve Ice Cream brand, Honey Creme from Taiwan finally come to Malaysia! Their first outlet is located at Desa Sri Hartamas. I was invited to attend their launching event last Saturday, happy to be one of the first to try out their Softserve Ice Cream =3


   Potatoes are just one of the common food for me until I discover more about potatoes in the U.S. Potato Fest organized by U.S. Potato Board at  KDU University College, Utropolis Glenmarie. I love to eat french fries, wedges, and mashed potatoes but I never know that potatoes actually contains so many vitamins and minerals that are good for our body.

Said Indra, 'According to the research of JACN, people can eat potatoes and still lose weight!' What I good news for me because I'm a potato lovers.

Interesting presentation by Indra Balaratnam, the Dietitian. 

   International award-winning Chef Kenneth Kam shared tips on how to prepare U.S. Potato Soup, Creamy Gratin U.S. Potatoes and Oven Roasted Quail U.S. Potatoes by doing a quick demonstration on the spot.

  I had checked out the new Mojo Nail Cafe located at SS2 Petaling Jaya few weeks ago. Received an invitation from Vivienne to try out their express manicure and pedicure so here I am to try out their service. 

   Before I started to do my manicure and pedicure, let's walk around and take some pictures of the cosy environment first! Look at the decoration here, so elegant, especially the comfy sofa.

   They provided a series of nail services from gel nail art to digital printing nail art. You may choose the design that you like from the sample shown or let them know what kind of design you want.

   Alright, it's time to enjoy my manicure and pedicure! As usually, it started with hand and leg spa. The manicurist will then shape your nail before applying nail color.

The manicurist applied scrub onto my leg and started to massage.
After exfoliation, the manicurist applied lotion on my hand and leg.
Started to applied nail color.

Here is the price list for your reference.
   On the other side, they have a cafe that serves hot foods and drinks. After done your manicure and pedicure, you can move to the cafe to have your meal and drink or just chilling here with your friends.

   Hi all~~ Just in the mood to update my blog after so long. I want to share with you guys some new places in Malacca that I had discovered during my weekend getaways few weeks ago, this can be your reference if you are going to revisit this historical city.

1. The Huskitory

   Check out this popular Husky cafe at Taman Asean, Malacca! Those cute Siberian huskies can really melt your heart and make you wanna bring them home, super kawaii~~ This is a lovely place where you can spend time with husky while enjoying drinks and finger food.


   Let’s face it – times are bad and the crime rate is going up with snatch thefts and roadside robberies is all too common in urban cities like the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Penang and even Malacca.

   Almost every single day you’d see news regarding crime shared on social media. Snatch theft can happen anywhere and to anyone – a pedestrian walking by the roadside, a driver stopping to pump fuel at a petrol station, even a diner happily having her meal at a restaurant.

Here’s an attempted snatch theft in Sunway. 

Here’s an incident in Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

Snatch theft in Johor Bahru.

Here’s an incident in Malacca.

   While rob and run incidents are even happening in busy and upscale neighbourhoods with police beat bases barely 100 meters away.

Here’s what happened at The Social along Jalan Telawi 3 in Bangsar Baru recently. 

   Even the Malaysian government is expecting it to rise in the near future.
Crime rates could increase over the next two years as the economy slows down, Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said. 
 (http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/putrajaya-expects-crime-surge-as-economy-slows-down#sthash.jLvftI8i.dpuf )

   It’s gotten so bad that even the US Department of State has issued a warning to its citizens in Malaysia:
“There has been a noticeable increase in crime in Kuala Lumpur in 2014, including several reported assaults and robberies, sometimes involving weapons. Petty theft, particularly purse snatching and pickpocketing, and residential burglaries are the most common crimes committed…”

   There’s nothing much you can do about it bar not going out but that’s not very practical. You think you’re only at risk when you’re at the roadside? Think again! This is a violent incident that happened on 17 October 2015 that’s currently going viral on Facebook.

Seorang wanita dihentak ke dinding lif sebelum dirompak oleh dua orang lelaki warga asing.Menurut OrientalDailyNews, katanya kejadian berlaku minggu lepas di sebuah pangsapuri di setapak. Kejadian menyebabkan mangsa mengalami kerosakan serius pada rahang dan gigi patah selepas diheret dan disepak..Sumber: 東方日報 OrientalDailyNews

   Notice how the girl did not want to let go of her bag even after being hit repeatedly? She suffered injuries to her jaw and teeth.

   Imagine if there was a program to protect you and your belongings so you can just let go in such a situation knowing that your loss will be covered?

   Well here’s some good news for you because Hot Assist which is powered by the Card Protection Plan from the United Kingdom has launched a new personal protection and lifestyle program in Malaysia.

   Rob & Run Assist is a lifestyle program to protect you in case unfortunate incidents occurs while giving you great lifestyle benefits such as well!
This program provides immediate assistance for snatch theft and (outdoors) robbery victims. As most ladies have their wallet, car keys, and mobile phone in their bag, when it is taken they will often be left feeling very helpless and lost. With protection by Hot Assist, you need only remember one (1) phone number to call for assistance.
With just one call to 1800-888-HOT, Hot Assist will block access to all registered credit and debit cards to prevent their usage, while the Emergency Taxi Service will be dispatched to take the member to the police station, hospital or home.

   Hot Assist will also reimburse members for loss of personal belongings, documents and personal effects as well as hospitalization and medical expenses.

   Rob & Run Assist is powered by CPP Malaysia Sdn Bhd. MPI Generali Insurans Berhad (14730-X), formerly known as Multi-Purpose Insurans Bhd is the underwriter for Rob & Run Assist.

CPP Group Plc is an international assistance business operating in the UK and overseas within the financial services, telecommunications and travel sector. CPP Group Plc has over 30 years experience, and is currently serving 5.1 million live policies around the world which includes me.
Sometime last year, I lost my wallet and in it was my credit and ATM cards as well as my personal identification documents. Now normally in such a situation you’d need to call up each bank individually to inform them of the loss and get them to cancel your card and that

   Apart from the protection, the program will also offer membership benefits in the form of vouchers and discounts from various partners. Currently partnered with Hot Assist is the premier hair salon Shawn Cutler, lifestyle beauty salon ReJeune, and Amante Nail Spa & Body Care, while there will be even more lifestyle and beauty partners joining soon.


   Amante Nail Spa & Body Care is giving a pair of FREE treatments at their salons worth RM174.00 each (totalling RM348.00) while ReJeune and Shawn Cutler are both giving members discount vouchers which will save users more than RM1,000.00!

So how much does this lifestyle and protection program cost?

Wait a minute! That’s way less than the value of the vouchers and free services that comes along with the program!

This makes Hot Assist more a lifestyle program that by the way also comes with protection in case of robbery.

So ladies, why not have peace of mind when you’re out and about, and men, why not purchase this for your partner or family to ensure their protection?
