Eat, shop & go on two wheels in Taiwan!
Before that grab the best travel deals at Taiwan Travel Fair

Whether you are considering a first or subsequent visits to Taiwan, there’s never a better time to tour the island than in 2015! Taiwan Tourism Bureau Kuala Lumpur (TTBKL) is organising its first-ever Taiwan Travel Fair in Malaysia. With the theme of “Time to Enjoy Life”, it will be held at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, where the public can get the best deals for Taiwan travel at this one-stop event from 25 to 29 March 2015.

With the first Taiwan Travel Fair, TTBKL hopes to present great value travel deals to Malaysian families. They have tied up with top Taiwanese and Malaysian travel agencies to offer a variety of exciting packages and the most attractive travel deals for all destinations in Taiwan. This also includes customised packages or tours specially-catered for Muslim visitors. 

For visitors of the fair who purchase any tour package from participating agents, they stand a chance to participate in a lucky draw for every RM500 spent. Prizes include Taipei return flight tickets sponsored by China Airlines and Eva Airways; and East Asia cruise on Star Aquarius, Star Virgo and Aquarius liners sponsored by Star Cruises.

The Taiwan Travel Fair will be held at the Oval concourse in 1 Utama Shopping Centre from 25 to 29 March 2015. Opens 10 am daily. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/tbrockl !

Based on a survey conducted by Taiwan Tourism in 2012, the top attractions for inbound tourists are sights and sceneries, food and shopping. As such, the Taiwan Travel Fair will also highlight three major experiences under the theme of “Time to Enjoy Life”:

Time to Eat


When it comes to food, Taiwan has it all. Dine like royalty without paying a king’s ransom for it. From juicy seasonal fruits, sumptuous traditional Chinese dishes, healthy vegetarian dishes, icy desserts to creative tea drinks, Taiwanese cuisine makes full use of local ingredients and age-old techniques to surprise and satisfy your palate. Don’t forget the world-famous night markets, filled with the enticing aromas of delicious street food and snacks!


Time to Shop


Taiwan is a shopaholic’s dream come true, with many large shopping centres and chain department stores in all four corners of the island. Shop for anything you want, from high-quality made-in-Taiwan 3C products, to famous highland tea and handmade weavings. For the fashion lover, all kinds of affordable clothing, leather goods and branded products are at your fingertips. In Taiwan, you are sure to find just about everything you want.


Time to go on Two Wheels


These days, the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) trend is gaining popularity as people begin to be more health and eco-conscious. Taiwan is well-known for its LOHAS practices, and there is no better way to experience it than to travel along the breath-taking coastal highways by bicycle! Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and appreciate the simple yet wonderful things in life with your loved ones.

Kimono love



I wish this was me right now. It has been (and still is) such a busy and tiring month, and all I want to do is go home / on a vacation / watch a movie / shopping / anywhere other than here.


This is a backdated outfit post (I wore this during my Miri trip last month), bear with me because there are a lot of pictures coming up.








Kimonos are pretty much a big deal this season and I got mine from Padini for only RM19 when they had their clearance sale. Such a steal! I think kimonos make such a great cover up (gotta protect ourselves from those harmful UV rays!), and the sheerness of it is just perfect for Malaysian weather. Simple and laid back, just nice for a vacation. 


About my vacation, Miri is such a small town, but the seafood there is the bomb! Also, the rich there have ridiculously huge land and houses. Saw a house that's so high on top of the hills that the owner has their personal private flyover that goes up to their mansion. Seriously.


Floral kimono, Denim shorts, Black handbag, Sunglasses from Padini  l  White spaghetti top from Gold Apple  l  Blue sandals from Cartino Sonea


I think I'm pretty much turning into a Padini fan here. For real though, they have some awesome stuff. 


Thanks for reading! Till then :)

{REVIEW} : Thayers Rose Petal Alcohol Free Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner



Happy Chap Goh Meh! I have another skincare product to recommend, and it's a toner this time :D



This is the Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner (such a long name, I know). 




BENEFITS:

Basically there are 3 main ingredients for this toner, and they each carry a benefit of its own.
- Rose water : anti bacterial, moisturizes, anti inflammatory
- Witch Hazel Extract : tighten pores, smooths and beautifies skin
- Aloe vera : moisturizes, treats sunburn and acne

It's also free from alcohol, which makes it more refreshing and more moisturizing than other toners that have alcohol content in them.



PROPERTIES:

- transparent liquid
- rose scented




APPLICATION:

I apply it every time after I cleansed my face. I usually do not use a cotton pad to apply toner, simply because I feel that its quite wasting. Cotton pads soak up a good amount of your product, so I just use my hands to apply it. 

This toner can also be applied throughout the day whenever you feel that your skin is too dry.




VERDICT:

So far I think this product is quite okay. Normally I don't really like scented stuff because of my sensitive nose but the rose scent of this toner is mild and quite pleasant, so for those who have sensitive noses like me, you need not worry about the scent.  



LIKES:

- the size (it's huge! Can use for very long! 355ml per bottle)
- has a cooling effect when applied
- has many other types to choose from for different needs 



DISLIKES:

- the packaging. (the lid is not tight enough so if the bottle is not placed upright, the toner will leak out)






Thank you Natta Cosme for the opportunity to review this product :) If any of you are interested to try it out, you can get it here for RM45 per bottle.



Also, from now till the 15th of March 2015, you can enjoy a RM10 discount when you purchase RM80 and above worth of products from Natta Cosme! The coupon code is : 38WM15




Thanks for reading! Have a pleasant weekend ahead everyone :)
