A Review on Mario Badescu Skincare

Hello Beautiful People!

I have missed you all dearly!

I hoped you all had a rejuvenating long long weekend...
**It was too short right? =p**

I have so many backlogs of post just waiting for me to filter and be publish.
I have to be more hard working...

Do forgive me, 
I just started a new job among the many things that I am doing.

But I know you all are just wonderful and forgiving readers right?

Now, how can anyone get angry after looking at those googly eyes =P


Well back to the main topic for today...

The other day I stumbled upon a rather interesting brand that 
Luxola carries which is called Mario Badesco

Who is Mario Badescu?

Mario Badescu Skin Care is one of the most profound skin care products in the world, 
which believes in old age skin care techniques. 
Enjoying a legacy of over 40 years as a skin care solution, 
the brand works on the vision of its founder Mario Badescu: 
Simplicity is the key to Healthy, Clean, Radiant Skin. 

Products by Mario Badescu in Malaysia help thousands of individuals in their fight with acne, rosacea, aging skin and other skin related issues very effectively.


I was fortunate to be give a chance to try out some of their products specially from Luxola.

The is my first time ever using Luxola services,
I must say the offer great service!

I love how they have their own parcel package, 
fully equipped with bubble wrap!

Packing and delivery time from Luxola gets double stars from me =D

I choose to try out 2 of their product rather highly rated products.

First one is the Buffering Lotion.

Lately, due to over stress and minimal sleep,
I have been popping pimples and growing ache rapidly,
so when I saw this, I had to give it a try.


Battle cystic acne with Mario’s Buffering Lotion. The solution is easily absorbable by skin thanks to its sulfur base. It soothes redness, targets under the skin pimples, and prevents new ones from emerging.


  • Contains Allantoin, which soothes inflamed skin and promotes healing.
  • Anti-redness and healing ingredients aid tissue regrowth on skin affected and damaged by acne. 
  • Suitable for combination & oily skin types.

It is a watery like liquid as you can see on my palm.

The product has a rather strong pungent alcohol like smell.

When I smell it, it gives me the feeling that it is
going to clean and kill all the germs on my face!


One awesome thing about Luxola is that they include 
a video on how to apply the product.

Really useful stuff!

Check it out here:

The other product I tried from them is their Enzyme Revitalizing Mask.

One of the reason for my current poor complexion, 
as I was told by my beautician after my facial yesterday, 
is that I do not do enough of mask for my face.

I really need to be more hard working.


Being a girl is A LOT of work.

Gentlemen of the world, 
please do remember to complement the ladies in your life
because they really put much effort into maintaining themselves.

Here is a little info on the product


Give skin a radiance boost, some nourishment and a pick-me-up with this delicious smelling mask. Light yet moisturizing, this mask will leave your skin smooth, moisturized and glowing. Ideal for keeping pimples at bay and bringing life back to dry and sallow skin, this is one of those products, that after one use, you won’t be able to live without.


This product is a moisture intensive Alpha Hydroxy mask ideal for dull, dry or mature skin. Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts are the natural exfoliants blended with antioxidant Vitamin A and E oils giving the skin a refreshed, glowing appearance. 

You can check out the product here:

Personally, I love the smell and how it feels on the skin.

Paste form masks are always not my first choice when it comes to marks
because when it dries, it becomes so tight and difficult to wash off
but for this, even after drying, it is very easily washed off .

It does leave my skin feeling nice and moisturize.
Plus, it smells good =D

I would recommend this.


Wonderful news for you all who need some help keeping those 
pimples and aches in control...

Luxola is offering a 15% discount for all you lovely people.

Just put in this promo code:

Till the next post darlings =D

One Stop Online Shopping with iPrice

Happy Glorious Year of the Goat!

I trust that everyone had a wonderful Chinese New Year celebration =D

I am missing the holidays...
and the Ang Pau collecting =P

It really has been awhile since I blogged,
I have been preoccupied with many different things since the start of this new year.

You can always get more recent updates via my
Instagram and Facebook Page

But I will do my best to bring more updates and new happenings very soon =D


Moving on to more interesting topics,
for those who know me will all know that I absolutely love to shop!


You know when they say women have bad sense of direction,
I am one of them

But ask me for any store location in all the major malls,

BAM! I can direct you like a walking GPS


Then there is online shopping,
which I love love love!

The best part about online shopping is probably the time
when the package arrives,
Ladies, for those of you who shop online,
doesn't it feel like you are getting a present =D

It's like you kind of know what you are getting and yet you don't
because you haven't actually seen it live.

*Awesome feeling*

Like recently, I shopped at Zalora for the 1st time
and I must say, their service is awesome!

Another thing that I love about shopping online
are those cheap deals you can get compared to buying it from the shop.

You get the EXACT same thing for cheaper price
if you buy it online.

Plus, nowadays there are so many discounts and coupons.
We are literally spoiled for choice

But, don't you have this feeling that sometimes there are just too many
out there that it gets confusing?

Well, I was so happy that I found

is like your one stop online shopping mall that pretty
much sells every brand under the sun!

I love how iPrice serves as a platform
that shows us all the various deals compiled
from all the website that provide us good deals.

Now, we get to look for the things we want to get
without having to go to multiple sites
to compare the prices etc..

We can do it all on iPrice.

How handy is that!

We will now NEVER miss any deals!

Now, this is what you call being a smart consumer=P


Plus, they even offer various discount coupons from different online shopping site!
like Zalora and Lazada to name a few.



Extremely worth it to check it out
with all the GST happening next month.

We must be smart consumers!!!

Hello all my darlings!

I have been terribly missing you all.
I can imagine the neglect you all have been feeling =P


Time for me to get back into action.
*Bruce Lee scream and nose rub*

Well, as the year is coming to an end,
I cannot help but look back on the happenings this year.

I have to say it has been an eventful year for me,
filled with many wonderful experiences. =D

More importantly,
I had many 1st time experiences.

Some things where I thought I would have never had the guts or dreamt of doing,
I did this year =P

Thinking back now, 
I still cannot believe it.

Nothing illegal if that was running through your mind =P

It is real at the same time surreal

I will be like 
"I did that? Really? I did?"


In this amazing year of 2014, 
I learned that everyone has the capacity to change,
it is just a matter of whether we ourselves want to or not.

Every single one of us really have the potential to achieve
all the things we dream about having,

BUT, no one said it was going to be easy to achieve,
come on, even happiness takes loads of work.

No free lunch baby dolls =P


I guess what I want to say is that we should learn to never put limitation
on ourselves and more important to never put limitation on others =)

Never bring someone down 
but always find ways to lift people up. 

We do not lose anything by 
being a tiny bit nicer to others right?

I am sure ALL you lovely people 
who took the time to read through this wordy post,
are extremely lovely people =D

On another note, there will always be people
who I think have dedicated their entire existence 
to putting people down.

Well, they best way we can deal with these people
is like what Taylor says is to shake them all OFF.

Just remember to take a step back, relax, 
have a cup of tea
and enjoy what life has to offer.

Don't waste it on petty little things,
like getting influenced and sucked into other people's opinion of you.

Life is just to short to waste it on 
pleasing everyone.

For now,
just focus on being the best version of yourself =D

Have a wonderful Christmas week ahead!

Opium @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL

Hello everyone...

How are you all?
Wonderful! I am sure.

I have been going MIA a little recently...
Making you peeps miss me more huh? =P

Today, I bring you all yet another delicious post...
(I really have been having a lot of it lately)

Opium @ Changkat Bukit Bintang
is the newest member but dare I say the most exotic restaurant along the exciting Changkat street.

I love the Opium's set up as the management have put in tremendous effort to bring
that authentic Opium era feel for all of us to experience.

Every single detailed right down to the scent in the air there has been designed
especially to tailor to that particular era.

They really have synthetic opium fragrance surrounding the place.
Talk about authenticity...  

Here we have the open area, for all those who would love to enjoy some night breeze.

The family dining area
is equipped with a long dining table
which is to symbolize our Chinese tradition of having a meal with the entire family.

People did have tons of children back then right =p

Olden wine pots we see in all those kung fu movies.

They even had those olden times black and white chinese movies playing.

Here we are at the Rose Room.

Notice the rose printing on the left side?
Hence, the name, Rose Room.

It is a decent size room which can be closed off for those who 
would like to have their very own private functions
(e.g. Birthdays etc...)

For those who don't know this an Opium Bed =D
(Look...even the kid knows that it is relaxing)

Besides that,
they even have separate seating booth for extra privacy
without having to sacrifice the wonderful ambiance.

However, for those who would like added privacy
for business talks and so on,
they also have a private room just to cater for that need.

Every possible seating arrangement has been carefully though of
How awesome is that =D

All around the restaurant you will be able to notice these
opium pipes, which were personally hand picked by their management team.

Some of them had to be flown in.

How much of dedication was put into the interior to bring that authenticity out.

Cannot not love it right =D

More of the awesome interior.

Notice those stack of bowls on the counter?

They actually serve water in those bowls
just like how we see all those people drink alcohol/water in those kung fu movies.

Super awesome right!

Time to bring out them drinks!

There is something you all must know about the drinks at Opium...

They especially hired a mixology to especially design all of Opium's drinks.

Their drinks are an amazing cross between east and west.

Here we have some of their signature specials.

These are the house cocktails.
Must try!

More interesting must try!

I must say...

Opium is a must visit because of their drinks.
 They are all so uniquely made.

Ti-Lung Bramble RM32 
(based in gin with lemon, dragon fruit, and creme de cassis)

Very unique presentation and taste as well.

Peking Man RM 32
(Vodka, Puer Tea, Longan, Lime Juice, Egg White and Orange Bitters)

I have to say, of all the drinks, I love this the most.

The combination of vodka and Puer tea is just genius.
Plus, all the other ingredients really bring out the flavors.

It is perfect for me as it still has that little kick but it is not too strong.

Plus, it comes with 2 little cups of tit bits..

What's not to love!

Another clearer picture.

Mango Asam Boi RM 15

Sweet and sour combination of mango and asam boi
brings an amazingly refreshing drink.

Glorious Food!

Be prepared to be WOW-ed!

True to their theme...
Not only their drinks are a mixed between the east and west.

They even manage to incorporate that element into their food as well.

I was and still am very impress with their menu.

Lemongrass Sticks RM 12
(Chicken, Squid, Lemongrass, Tumeric)

Lovely tender chicken and squid combination.
The addition of lemongrass gives it the extra aroma.

Lamb Patties RM 18
(Braised lamb, Camembert Cheese, Sambal Mayonnaise)

Every bite is juicy and fulfilling

Cheese Samosa RM 18
(Combination of Parmesan, Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese wrapped in a popiah skin)

Absolute cheese fever!
Why settle for 2 types of cheese when u can have 3 types.

More is definitely better...In this case =P

Crystal Dumplings RM 12

Opium Wantan Noodles RM 28
(Springy egg noodles, Deep fried Spinach, Minced Chicken)

Now, this dish is an absolute delight!
This dish just prove that innovation is limitless.

This is a rather interesting alternative to the wantan noodles that we traditionally are familiar.

The combination of deep fried spinach  and minced chicken was yummy
however, I did find the dish a little too dry.

But no matter, a spoon or 2 of the soup did wonders to the dish =D

Another picture to show the hidden noodles underneath all the goodies

Rendang Wagyu Beef 
served with Lotus Leaf Bun RM 38

Juicy tender wagyu beef cooked in rich rendang curry was so appetizing!!!

After having a taste of wayyu beef being cooked as rendang,
I think I will always remember it's tenderness and yearn for it
whenever I eat normal rendang dishes.

The curry that the beef is cooked in is not too spicy,
so to those who cannot eat spicy ( so kesianing!)
you most definitely can enjoy this without having to hog a cup of water the entire meal.

Just look at that rendang dish...

Doesn't it make you hungry?!

I know i am...hehehe.

Cod Fish in Curry Sauce 
served with Steamed Sesame Rice RM 38

This curry dish is more of a creamy fragrant dish rather than your average spicy hot dishes.

Cod fish (the good stuff i am telling you)
cooked in rich creamy curry with a hint of sweetness at the end.

Absolutely appetizing dish.

Must try!

Another closer look at the dish

Peppery Beef Soup RM 15
(Lamb cubes, carrot, potato, local spices, coriander, fried shallots)

Wonderful hot and soothing bowl of soup that is packed with
tons of flavors that will leave you asking for more =D

Grilled Chicken Wings RM 15

It has a nice sweetish sour kind of BBQ marinate...
I am not much a chicken wing kinda girl
but for those who love a good chicken wing you may want to give this a try =)

Fern Leaf Salad with Grilled Prawns RM 24
(Wild fern leaves, prawns, sambal, ginger flower, shallots, lime juice, coconut)

This is my 1st time having fern leaves and I must say this was quite the appetizing dish indeed.
The taste of this dish kind of reminds me of Thai cuisine.

Cheesy Banana Fritters RM18
(Fried Banana, aged Cheddar Cheese, topped with Opium's very own
homemade Banana Ice Cream)

This is the way to end a wonderful meal...
Sealing in all the goodness =D

This dessert dish comes with freshly fried banana.
The combination of warm hot banana fritters and cold banana ice cream
is absolute joy to taste...

Salted Egg Cream Bun RM 12

Creamy salted egg oozing out with a bite.
Quite similar to the ones we can get at Dim Sum shops

Opium Ice Glass RM 18

Opium's very own version of the ice kacang
It is sort of a mix of western and asian all in a tall glass.

The Opium Ice Glass is slightly mild tasting compared to the usual ice kacang we have.
It is perfect for those who prefers not too much of sweet.

The very special rice cake candies as a parting gift after getting the bill.

How thoughtful =D

Along the entire Changkat road....
I must say Opium really stood out from the rest
from it's interior to their drinks, 
every single detail was thought through to bring us
the experience that encompasses all our 5 senses.

Definitely worth several more visit...
Need to try out all their awesome spread of drinks =P

Wondering where to try out this weekend???

Head on down to Opium...

I guarantee you won't regret it =)
