Hermo Foot Mask

Just got back from Miri a few days ago. But before I get down to bombarding you guys with pictures, here's an overdue post that I've been meaning to finish up... until now. 

So, I don't exactly have the smoothest feet around and I hardly, if nothing, give any attention to them. How many of you girls out there actually give due care to your footsies just like how you care for your face? 

But recently, due to a changed mentality, I've started taking care of my body much, much, much more than before. 

I tak mau jadi those typical aunties with ugleh cracked feet, dull haggard face and knotted, matted hair. I want to be a glamorous tai tai. Hahaha. 


Then I realized, damn... my feet needs some TLC. I WANT PRETTY FEET TOO. It never ends does it?

So about 3 weeks ago, was kind enough to sponsor me a pair of foot mask by BeautyQ! 

NO MORE cracked heels, tan lines, permanent black & brown stains around my heels and toes.

This is a made-in Taiwan product. It is an exfoliation treatment for cracked, dry, rough heels and feet, that nourishes and moisturises your feet!

Now let's get down to the details. The product works by peeling off the outer dead skin of your feet revealing a new smoother layer underneath. 

This process doesn't happen overnight. Instead, it takes approximately a week for the skin on your feet to fully shed. And no, it doesn't hurt. 

So you first put your feet into the mask that resembles a soaked plastic bag. And being my first time, I had no idea how to seal the mask. I mean I did notice a "seal here" sticker somewhere along the line but it proved ineffective because it wasn't sticky and large enough to completely seal the whole foot mask up. 

So I resorted to using cellophane tape. Haha. 

And then I wait. You're supposed to have it on for about 60 to 90 minutes for the feet mask to do it's mojo.

To make it easier for me to walk around, I put on my fluffy pink socks from Daiso :)

You see the two long wooden sticks coming out from my socks? Let me assure you they are real legs. 

During the process, I did feel a slight tingling sensation around my feet. Like the skin became more fragile and... transparent for a better word. 

Leave it on for 60-90 minutes. After that, I took it off, rinsed my feet with water and continued my day like normal. 

I don't know whether I'm imagining things, but right after I took off the feet mask, the veins on my feet were sorta noticeable because my skin was sorta transparent. I'm a mutant.

And the floor felt slightly more slippery than usual.

But after a day or so, the "slippery effect" wore off.

And then the fun begins. According to the package, your skin should start shedding by the 4th or 5th day and last until the 6th or 7th day. 

But for me, my skin started shedding after the 3rd day and lasted about 3 days. 

The below pictures are similar to what I experienced.

OK FINE. I'll show you the picture of my foot :(

Don't ask me why there's a RM50 note next to my foot. I'm so mortified.

So yeah whatever. Cool yah?

I did not take an AFTER picture of my foot because... just because. But I'm really impressed with the results. My feet has seriously gotten smoother... and fairer if I may add. Probably because all the hard dirt has peeled off :)

So if you wanna purchase it, you can get it at HERMO.MY. If I'm not mistaken, there's a promotion going on for this exact foot mask now! So grab it while stock lasts :D

Once again, thanks Hermo for giving me the chance to try out this product. I'll definitely come back for more. If my budget allows :P

I need your votes!

SO! Miss Global International Malaysia 2013's official voting round has BEGUN! MGIM for short. Actually, voting began last week. Like on the 3rd.

And this is MY bunting! I am feeling pretty good about myself right now.

Oh, and I'm Selena btw. Haha.

I don't know whether MGIM will use this picture for the whole duration of the competition because... I think look like a Pharaoh. 

 Okay... I don't look THAT bad.

I'm probably looking like this:

I'm Cleopatra. I'm badass.

So conclusion is...

I look like a badass Pharaoh. Booyah.

So is this whole post about how I look like a Pharaoh in my bunting?

Actually... yes and no.

Because I'm here to announce the FISHING PERIOD!


For your information: The highest voted finalist will AUTOMATICALLY qualify into the TOP 9. That's awesome.

SO! If you love me as a person and think I deserve to get that extra vote, here's how to VOTE FOR ME:

This is my first time fishing for votes. And I'm not really sure how to go about it but...


Is this how you fish for votes? Am I doing it right? Am I  pushing people away from me? T___T

I leave the fate of my Pharaoh picture in your hands.


P.S.: I'm not sure when the voting will close. So just stay tuned la ;)

Killer Butterflies


Happy Birthday Papa!

Ok, next. lol.

I'm currently in love with 4MINUTE - '물 좋아? (Is It Poppin'?)' (Official Music Video)


My new favorite 4minute song :D

The song has a light-ish pop vibe to it. Not so loud and crazy. It's a song you can put on repeat and still concentrate on blogging. Hah.

And, HYUNA!! .... omggg.... how can you be so sexy??? I like her with black hair the best.

So last week was the Malaysian Masters, a special tourney held to select the Malaysian chess squad.

Because it was a week after my exams and with about a week to ready myself for battle, I thought I was gonna get slaughtered. 

But, I qualified for the national squad ;) Wee!

I know that previously I've been in the team before, but every opportunity given to me is still a blessing :) 

Top 6 women qualify. I got 4th. So logically speaking, top 6 men should also qualify yea? But I'm hearing top 8 for men. Oh I'm so confused. But whatever, if you're in the top 5, confirm your position will not be compromised. Unless you don't want to play..

Women results here. Men results here.

I love chess.

Pictures of my sleepy face in the hotel room first.

Sorry ah, just woke up. My free day that day :D

First round was in the Palace of the Golden Horses. 

Guest-of-honor was the prince of Perak, Raja Nazrin. Small talked with the players. When he got to the table my brother and I were playing at, he asked how old I was. So I told him and he went, ...wait for it, wait for it...

"Oh? You look so young!"


So happy... 

The presentation of the desserts there were really.... SO BLARDY CUTE CAN DIE MAN.



Subsequent rounds were at Swiss Inn at Petaling Street.


The men's section finished a day later. So that meant I had one free day for KL.

KL = shopping. Shopping was rad, babeh. Rad.

That day's buy.


In H&M's changing room... the purpose of this picture is not to show the dress. It's to show my DARK DARK SKIN. So a few days ago, I bought this. 

It was going to be either Sunplay or Biore. 

But Sunplay had one version in pink. So if it's pink, it's mine. Haha.

The tide is coming

So I was preparing my CV and resume yesterday.


And I am not ready for work life.... lol. I did say I was excited to work and earn my own money. But when the time comes, realization dawns upon you that once working life starts, that's it. There's going to be hardly any time left to do what you want. 

Unless of course, you love your work so bad and your passion is your 9-5 office job and your goal is climb the corporate ladder. Then that's all fine and dandy. 

For now, I have just too many things coming up that take up a heck of my time. Especially at this second half of the year. Let's just hope they pay off.

I'll just have to thread extra carefully. Just for this period. Things will work out :)

Now that it's the 1st of July, I have approximately 18 days left before I leave for Miri. Excited! June was pretty hectic. I thought I would be free once exams were over, but things just kept popping up one after another. Wonderful things. But unrelated things. Hahaha.

I've been working on my body. I haven't been following a consistent workout pattern because of my hectic schedule.

Actually, I don't think I'll ever have a consistent workout routine. hahahaha. Just that now my time is freed up, I can exercise more often. It's usually a jumble of sets of exercises. Each day different from the previous one. But I don't care. So long as it works. Haha.

Also, I'm surprised I've nearly completed my to-buy-list. Haha. Just need one or two more items and I'm done :)

On another note...

Yesterday's breakfast. Woke up at 7am on a SUNDAY... for THIS. 

It's good. GOOD, I tell you. Worth the early wake up call :) The food was all sold out by 8am. It's a shop in Kampar called Meng Kei... or something.

JULY, it's gonna be challenging. Still, JULY, I LOVE YOU!
