REVIEW : ALWAYS21 FACE MASK & SCRUB

DISCLAIMER : THESE OPINIONS ARE MY OWN. THE PRODUCTS ARE NOT SPONSORED. I BOUGHT WITH MY OWN MONEY AND THE OPINIONS ARE IKHLAS DARI HATIKU INI

Hello guys! Assalamualaikum. Long time no see. I'm back with a review post wuhuuuu. Long short story, I was not busy pun actually hahahha. Cuma ada komitmen yang kena disettlekan yang membuatkan masa nak spend untuk blog semakin hari semakin berkurang. But, now, I'm back! Rindu tak rindu tak? 

Hellooooooo...... *cricket sound* *bergema*



So, for today's blogpost, I'm going to review a product that I've been using for quite good 'ol two months. I got this product back in January. It's from a brand called Always21. Okay, never heard of this brand before actually. 
So, the story behind is actually, when I hung out with my bestfriend at Aeon, the niat was to shop some clothes but unfortunately didn't find any that suits my style (fuhh selamat duit). So jalan jalan je kat aeon tu, sampailah my bestfriend balik, lepastu on the way nak keluar ke pintu lagi satu yang ya rabbi jauh gila, lepastu memang dah sepatutnya allah dah aturkan kena keluarkan duit jugak hari tu, terjumpa satu booth tau tak booth kat aeon macam mana. Macam booth Samsung, Oppo semua yang duduk tetengah alam Aeon tu. Haaa something like that, but it's not a phone booth. Is it even called booth? I don't know lah how it's legitimately considered as a booth. 
But, it's a store yesss store finally found the word. It's a skincare store. Mostly korean brands like Laneige, Nature Republic and some 'knock-off' korean brands???? Some of the products are similar with products that are well-known in the beauty world??? Well, I'm not sure if I haven't heard any of them before sorry I'm not a beauty guru. 
So I walked through the aisle, yes, they have aisle guysss. Not a normal store by considering that it's a pretty small store. The saleswoman, eish what term do you use, promoter? consultant? i don't know but let's just call her kakak lenglui. So, the kakak lenglui helped me choosing some products. Coincidentally, I was really looking for a good mask or skincare for my skin. So, I saw a promotion of Nature Republic infamous aloe vera gel vadavoom. It comes in 4 bekas for I think it was less than 50 ringgit and you will get free hand cream. And they also got cute gift sets so that you can purchase and give it to someone. Okaylah I admit,  I didn't take any pictures because didn't plan on telling you this story actually. 
Okay move on. In the end, I chose a set which consists of a mud mask, a scrub and I got three free hand creams that come with the set. 



The hand creams are sooooo cute. They have three scent which are cotton flower (my fav!) It has that kind of baby powder and baby lotion kind of scent, jasmine flower which smells kind of weird because I have no idea what are the nature things to relate with the smell but it smells nice also and cherry blossom well technically just a typical cherry blossom flowery and sweet kind of scent. They are really handy when it comes to travelling. Easy to carry, the size is compact. Just throw it in your bag, and wallahi so easy lah maaa so no excuses for not making your hands smell good!



So I purchased Jeju Volcanic Deep Pore Cleansing Clay Mask and Lemonade Sugar Calming Wash Off Pack oh my god the names are damn long my fingers need a break. I think Jeju Volcanic Mask is kinda popular these days. Every brands are making one which I personally think that they obviously took from only one place which is Jeju. So, they are all pretty much the same? Or is there multiple volcanos in Jeju? Never been there and never have the idea on searching them on the net. Melainkan kalau the company took the volcano from the peak and the other company took from the bottom, just the scrap. Well, I don't know. I don't do face mask. And I'm not risking myself going to a volcano just to take the volcano and turns it into a mask. Even when my hands pegang cawan panas pun dah ouch ouch


So, these are the inside looks. I've used it several times so it's kinda comot already. The packaging is really nice. It's quite hard, and like kaca packaging almost. It's quite heavy. Feels like a high-end product. It's not plastic but it's not kaca. But, really nice though. I feel fabolous touching it. 


The consistency wise, the clay mask, it's really smooth and not too chalky and muddy because I've tried another brand, the clay mask is almost has the consistency of a melted chalk. Well, I don't know if you could melt a chalk. But, I feel it that way. So, this one, really smooth, it smells good (for sure, priority). It applies easily on the face, I don't really use much of the product to cover my entire face because a small amount does it job really nicely. Less is more girl.

For the lemon scrub, it feels really sugary so you know it's a good exfoliating scrub. And yes, it smells nice. It smells really natural well it isn't that natural though. I don't feel dry at all applying this bad boy on my face. Because there is some scrub that feels like it just tarik your face to the side and you will feel dry afterwards. Whilst this one, is really good. Nothing to complain. It doesn't leave any melekit residue, your skin will feel really smooth. I even apply this on my lips. Also, I recommend if you're exfoliating or scrubbing your face, to wear at least a moisturiser or apply a mask afterwards. Because after exfoliating, your skin tends to be dehydrated eventhough you don't feel the dryness. 

So overall, the products have been great! 10/10 for me! I've been using this when my skins are breaking out, or sunburnt. Other than aloe vera, I use these products to help treating my skin to the fullest. 

For your information, I purchased it at Aeon Klebang, Ipoh. I bought this set for RM58. I got this on a promotion because the normal price is RM70 just for the mask and the scrub. But, with less than RM60, I got a mask and a scrub, and also three hand creams. So, is it an Amni Great Deal? Yes, it is!

So, I hope I don't leave anything behind. If there's any other products, movies or even food that you want me to review, just leave your comment down below. I think that's all for today, bye! Wassalam.

My abah made me do Ikan Singgang



"Nak masak apa harini?" asked abah
"Taktau. Beli je lah barang apa apa." answered me
"Buat ikan singgang lah harini. Nanti abah beli ikan." said abah

And me : *pengsan*
Also me : *whatsapp mama quickly to ask for recipe*

I should have answered ayam paprik. Damn it.

So, I was going back and forth at the kitchen thinking how am I going to achieve on cooking Ikan Singgang. For those of you who don't know, ikan singgang is one of the most popular dishes in Kelantan and literally, my abah loves the dish so much since it doesn't require any oil. Just boil your things and wallah you have your singgang. And wallahi, I was shaking so hard since I'm not a big fan of ikan singgang. I can eat them, tapi tak bersungguh lah. 

And abah got back with two plastics full of fish. There were ikan selayang and ikan tenggiri. The first thing that I did was checking the ikan selayang wether it has been siang-ed or not. Guess what, no. I know how to siang the ikan, but I usually fail at trimming the fish side where you usually pull out the internal organs of the fish. Usually, it's either I trimmed it too shallow or I trimmed it where the bones attached and ended up poking my finger. padan muka. I think someone should do a workshop on how to siang ikan properly without injuring themselves. And I will be the earliest student to register.

But I managed to do so on that day. I was so relieved. The side was just nice in my preference lah. Imagine if I were shaky and kelam kabut, I bet the fish will not just lose their internal organs, might as well the flesh. So kesian. I hope that the fish's soul will not kacau me in the middle of the night trying to put the blame on me for not respecting the fish after stabbing it. I'm sorry fish. Mintak izin belah perut ikan ni ye nenek moyang ikan. Cucu cuma nak masak dia je *insert cricket sound* *as well as the ghosty music*

And as a typical social media person. Of course I have to update everything, to let everyone knows (and to let everyone knows that I'm a good cook so that the one who has a grown up son, and looking for a wife can recommend me as one of the candidate to their sons) I had this thought way beyond than what was I supposed to write. Oh yeah, ikan singgang.

I did instastories and the only picture I captured was this



And this




I think I'm fancy enough to be someone's lifetime maid lol just kidding ( or I'm not ) No. Really. Just kidding. I still can't get over my korean babies, how can I be someone's partner? I might spend more time with my korean babies than my own partner. Pepandai lah survive ye. 


The final turnout? It was good! It had that sour, salty, sweet, tangy taste to it which what it supposed to taste like. It means, I did it! And I'm still proud with my siang ikan skill. That was lit yall *flips tudung*


I'm not sure if I should do more recipes blogpost. It has been almost a month since I started cooking for almost everyday. It's so enjoyable and great to get to learn such dishes and much more! I've cooked chicken rice, tomato rice, fish curry and many more. Yet, there's still a long way to go and a lot more to learn. Until then, bye. Wassalam.

OKU Parking




So, I went to the bank this morning and as a typical Malaysian, baru nak tukar kad bank well tak Malaysian lah kalau tak tukar kad bank lambat apeni. eventually, ramai jugak yang baru nak tukar kad bank jugak. tahun lepas orang suruh tukar taknak tukar, dah 2017 baru nak tukar. apeni apeni hahahaha.Okay, cerita dia bukanlah pasal kad bank yang baru nak tukar ni, tapi serious talk, lawa nak mampus kad yang baru ni. aku rasa nak patah dua kad yang lama yang dah calar seribu ni. okay tak tipu je. tapi serious lawaaaaa. rasa nak pergi atm hari hari semata mata nak guna kad baru tu padahal duit dalam tu entah ada entah tidak :b
So, aku pun dari traffic light, buatlah u-turn sebab bank kat seberang sana. Masuk simpang, cari parking. Disebabkan masa tu bank belum bukak, so orang takdelah ramai sangat but still there are some people queueing kat luar bank tu. aku pun hmm menonong cari parking. Nak parking jauh, malas nak berjalan. jadi, carilah parking yang jarak dia hanyalah sekangkang kera dengan bank. aku still pelik kenapa guna sekangkang kera. kenapa tak guna sekangkang harimau ke, itik ke, kura-kura ke. adakah kangkangan mereka berbeza dan tak sama seperti kera yang menyebabkan syarat kangkangan mereka untuk dijadikan peribahasa tak menepati syariat? dan hanya kangkangan kera sahaja yang valid dan pass semua ujian untuk dijadikan peribahasa? aku rasa aku kena tanya balik cikgu bm aku lolJadi, aku dah jumpa parking. Lepastu aku pelik, kenapa takde orang parking kat sini. disebabkan instinct kepositifan aku ni. aku pun, "Orang baru keluar kot. alah, parking je lah, rezeki parking"

Jadi, dengan bersenang lenang mak nenek dia, nak tunjuk power lah tu kononnya reti side parking. Pakcik kat luar pun pandang je dengan muka "Dia ni reti side parking ke tidak ni? Let's see..." Ceh pepandai let's see tau. Okay, dengan kepoweran dan keangkuhan meng-side parking, aku berjaya masuk hek eleh senang je side parking. Riak riak. 

Aku pun bersenang lenang, keluar kereta pergi lah beratur. Takdelah ramai sangat memandangkan masatu bank belum bukak dan aku datang memang awal. 


Aku pun tengok sekeliling. pastu, yang aku perasan orang asyik duk pandang aku. aku macam,

"pehal semua orang nak pandang aku je ni."

Dengan izin Allah, Dia nak tunjuk kebenaran, aku pun pandanglah kereta aku, lepastu pandang sikit atas dia, yes sikit je.









JENG JENG JENGGGGGGG~~~

"Shit, pehal aku parking situ doeee??! Itu parking OKU lah senget. Astaghfirullah..." sambil tampar dahi tanda kebodohan diri sendiri sebab tak peka 

Niat di hati nak biarkan aje. Alah, orang lain pun ada buat jugak. Lagi satu, dah alang alang dapat beratur awal awal ni, orang pun tak ramai, dapatlah giliran awal. Tapi, fikir balik, bila orang buat kita marah, kenapa bila diri sendiri buat, biarkan aje? Tak ke aku akan jadi lebih kurang macam diorang jugak? Kurang sivik. Lepastu, kau nak dapat giliran awal sedangkan kau menyalahgunakan hak orang lain? hahahhahahaha mimpi kot. 

Jadi, aku pun tak fikir apa, tengok belakang, okay takdelah ramai sangat. pergi kat kereta, start enjin apa semua, terus pusing ke area parking kat tepi kedai. takdelah jauh mana sebenarnya, it just, typical me, malas. tau tak, malas. Just kena lintas jalan sikit je. 

Aku tak tau lah Allah nak balas ke apa, aku pergi balik beratur, okay syukur orang still macam tadi, so beratur kat tempat yang sama. still dapat giliran awal. tak sampai berapa minit, terus zuppppppp ramai gila orang datang dan beratur kat belakang. aku pun macam lega gila taktau lega kenapa. entahlah. 

So, the moral of the story, when you did something good, there will be something good in return. lepastu, peka lah dengan sekeliling jangan pekak. dan dan dan silalah tukar kad bank cepat cepat sebelum kau kena cas dan meraung kat situ sebab menyesal tak tukar awal awal. okay bye semua! wassalam.
