SEKA Whitening+ Lotion

I am an avid fan of Korean and Japanese skincare products. In my skincare routine, there's only 1 product that's not from a Korean or Japanese brand. 

Founded in 2016 and finally launched in 2018, SEKA is a Japanese beauty brand that focuses on using traditional fermentation concept in helping skin rejuvenation.

Spoon Cafe @ G Hotel Kelawai, Penang

G Hotel is a prestigious hotel in Penang (Malaysia) that's located right next to my favourite shopping mall Gurney Plaza. For those who don't know, I am a sucker for really modern and stylish interior, especially those with black, grey and white tones - that's why I love G Hotel!

For those who don't know (including myself until recently), G Hotel is actually made up of 2 separate entities - G Hotel Gurney and G Hotel Kelawai.

Not too long ago, I was invited by Rachael to be her +1 to attend a food review at G Hotel Kelawai's Spoon Cafe to test out their new set lunch menu.

가자 Korea Diary Part 7: K-Star Road @ Apgujeongrodeo, JYP & FNC Entertainment @ Cheongdamdong & Kakao Friends Store @ Gangnam

On this day, I got to catch up with Nini who had her day off from school. We used to be in the same college and dorm and also we were both part of the Melbourne University's Korean Students' Society's committee. I passed the baton to her as the instructor of the K-Pop dance class because I preferred to handle paperwork as a Treasurer at that point :P

oNecklace: Personalized Jewelry

I don't own a lot of accessories for my hands. What you are seeing in this photo are basically the things that I own for my hands - a pandora bracelet with only 3 charms to keep it minimal, a white gold diamond ring from my mom for my 21st birthday and a silver friendship ring from Pandora. 

Printcious Gifts

I am the worst when it comes to choosing a gift. Don’t get me wrong, I usually end up getting a very meaningful and irreplaceable gift for someone but the process of picking a gift drives me nuts. 

For my mom’s birthday, every year I’d just ask her straight-up if there’s something that she would like to have just to make sure I get her something practical. For my friends, we made a deal to not get one another gifts just to save up for gift shopping problem and that works best for everyone.

That being said, I still love the joy of giving presents once in a blue moon. In my opinion, there is something about gifting without a specific occasion that brings more surprise and joy. My all time go-to gift choice is definitely a personalized item. I love it when a gift has the ability to remind the receiver of a good memory that we both share or has more meaning than just being a material item. Most importantly, a duplicate is hard to be found. My 21st birthday present was a handmade photo album from my closest friends and I love it a lot. In my opinion, things like that are a thousand times more precious regardless of their price tags.
