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.

   After a warm welcome speech and a short introduction by the host, Indra Balaratnam, the Dietitian (expert in prescribing therapeutic nutrition) took over the stage with a presentation of the goodness of U.S. potatoes. 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. Chef Kenneth shared that 'I am pleased to collaborate with the U.S. Potato Board in this wonderful event.

  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.
