Romantic Dinner at Paresa Phuket


FashionValet X TheLuxeNomad contest going to end soon and I would like to try my very best for this contest because its not just a contest to me but more to a challenge on telling people bout my angan-angan (dreams) and imaginations. #ishyshycat

Okay guys, remember bout my "dream" from previous blog post? The romantic dinner thingy I mentioned earlier?

Yes! Yes! Yes! 
The Romantic Dinner!
ROMANTIC INFINITY POOL DINNER!



What do you think bout this? I love it so much! 

Two of us sitting by the infinity pool accompanied by the comforting touch of sea breeze and the calming wave's sound as the background music. Perfecto!

Eh, wait! Something is missing.. Food! 
Dont worry bout that because Paresa Phuket have their best culinary team that will prepare a mouth watering three course menu which designed especially for us and dine amongst the lights of the fiber optic lit pool (awesome rightttttt?) and Phuket's star studded sky. 

Now its the "perfecto" and memorable dinner that I will never forget. A moment to be cherish and passed by to our children and so on. 

:)



What a romantic dinner without a stunning dress right? I choose this emerald green crystal dress to be paired with black satin shawl, sequinned clutched and a pair of black high heels For me, it such a great combination between emerald green and black. It gives me an exclusive aura for "romantic mood". 



There is no other reason for me other than to cherish and experience the heaven of all heavens brought to reality by Paresa Phuket... and I'd like to win a stay at Paresa Phuket on The Luxe Nomad so much, as much as my dream clouds keep on popping out.. waiting for FashionValet to make it come true!

FashionValet X The Luxe Nomad

Whattttttt?? Free getaway??
I want I want!!

That was my reaction when I came across the FashionValet's instagram post on their FashionValet X The Luxe Nomad blog contest. But then, realizing that I am not a good writer especially when it come to "contest-related", I decided to skip this contest. I told my husband bout this and he said, just give a try, who knows if it is your lucky day. 

So, here I am trying my very best of luck!

 Actually, I've been to Phuket before with my family. It was a road trip and you know a road trip is so time consuming! We dont really had chance to stroll around on the Phuket famous beaches, experiencing the local culture or even relaxing on the beach enjoying the sun and sea-breeze. What I can remember, we were on a day trip to Phi Phi Island, back to hotel, sleep, woke up early in the morning and start our journey to the next destination.

Sooooo... Thanks to FashionValet for giving us (blogger) the chance of a lifetime.. 

*drum rolls* 
*drum rolls*
*drum rolls*

to win a head-to-toe ensemble from FashionValet and a 3 days & 2 nights stay at Paresa Phuket by The Luxe Nomad!!

Have you check out Paresa Phuket website? If no, please please please spend your-less-than-5-second to click on the link and be warned that the website will cause you a day-dreaming session up for a week! :)

Let me give you a peek of this resort.



Wakey wakey! Yes, I know this resort is freaking awesomeeee! 

Look at the scenery of this resort, very calm and peaceful. Located on the sea side slopes facing the azure blue water of Andaman sea with a spectacular view that are more than enough to make us forget the reality of life for a while. The resort design are modern and yet still revered the traditional elements in it which bring the luxury, simplicity and romantic ambience under one roof. I really love the airy and spacious atmosphere within the villa, and having a private infinity pool in every room is plus. Of course, it wont be called a getaway if spa isn't included. Surely everyone love to be pampered right?! Not to forget, the romantic dinner for all the lovely couples out there. Dining with your lover under the stars, by the pool or during the full moon. It is your choice! 

Everything is beyond perfection!      


As for me, I'd like to win a stay at Paresa Phuket on The Luxe Nomad because I will never ever ever afford to have this kind of luxury holiday everrr in my life! Even by doing some saving, cut some budget here and there (this including no more shopping, by shopping means NO MORE FASHIONVALET!). Arghhhh, I cannot handle that! Too many pretty things there. Its a heaven for every woman. Same goes to Paresa Phuket, Heaven of all Heavens! Actually I've been dreaming to have a rest and relax kinda of getaway and this opportunity came right in time.     

I want to experience a getaway where there's only me and my loved one spending our time together, chatting and reminiscing bout the past, dreaming on our future.. relaxing and lazying on the sun bed, reading some books, take a dip in the pool while enjoying the beautiful scenery and having a spa treatment to rejuvenate my body and indulge. 

Paresa Phuket is definitely the resort that I've been dreaming for, at least once in my lifetime. The place where dreams become reality!

.

Having a wonderful getaway is awesome but a stylish getaway is perfection! Here are some of my pick from FashionValet on what I will wear for the 3 days & 2 nights getaway. 

Bright color will spice up the mood for getaway and stand out from the ordinary.


A laid back outfit for beach walk and pair it with a tote bag and a comfortable sandal is must! 


Saying goodbye always the hardest one. Ending my vacation with below outfit and new spirit to face the challenging life. 


Should I start packing now? ;p

FoodHunters Feastival, The Strand Kota Damansara

Organizer : FoodHunters Feastival
Date : 28 February & 1st March 2015
Venue : The Strand, Kota Damansara

Dah lama teringin nak pergi event jual makanan macam ni tapi tak kesampaian disebabkan me and my husband kerja on different days. Tapi sekarang dah dapat tukar hari keje together-gether so senang la sikit nak g berjimba bila off day.. Laju je datang idea nak g sana sini, seronok sbb ada driver. :p

Biasanya kalau nak pergi tempat jauh dari umah, I tak fokus only kat satu tempat je. Alang-alang dah g jauh-jauh tu kan, terus buat list tempat yang nak g such as Ikea, The Strand, makan-makan area Damansara etc. Kira sekali harung je la senang and jimat.

Okay, back to FoodHunters Feastival.. Banyak jugak booth-booth and food truck yang jual makanan menarik. Tapi memang tak dapat lah nak beli semua benda kannn.. Kena pusing-pusing dulu tengok which one paling menarik hati then baru boleh proceed beli. Untuk first round kami beli Vietnamese Roll kat booth Foodie Escape and Beef Nachos kat booth Tanjak Crew.

Second round, my husband beli Char Kuey Teow and I beli Nasi Lemak Kerang. Terliur tengok ada 2-3 orang duk makan Nasi Lemak, I siap pusing 2-3 kali cari booth Nasi Lemak tu. Nasib baik jumpa. Nampak sedap je tengok dari jauh, bila dah rasa memang best! Macam Nasi Lemak yang mak kita buat. My husband pon cakap sedap and murah. RM4 je and banyak plak tu dia letak kerang, sambal ikan bilis and telur separuh. Berbaloi! Ada meja disediakan kalau nak terus makan kat situ, ye lah, buat ape nak tunggu lama-lama kalau perut dah berbunyi kannn..





This Vietnamese Roll cost us RM10. Pernah makan before kat Vietnam and I dont really like it. Hehe. My husband yang nak try, alang-alang jumpa kat sini I suruh dia beli. He said mahal la benda niii.. Hahha.. 


And this is Beef Nachos, RM9. Husband yang nak try sebab dia still x puas makan Nachos from Big Brothers. As for me, I still cant get over the Beef Nachos from Royale Grill (RM5). Yang Tanjak Crew ni a bit tawar and daging sikit sangat. Xpuas makan. :(


Cant wait for the next FoodHunters Feastival!! 
*part makan memag laju jeee..*

Proxy Kitchen, Plaza Damas


I had an appointment with Bubble Gum Wax few weeks ago at Plaza Damas. I think it was a coincident that the night before my appointment, I watched Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan (repeat) and the host were reviewing about this restaurant. I checked out the address and tadaaa.. Same place yaw! I go bodek my husband so that he will follow me to Plaza Damas. Hehe. 

After the appointment, we went straight to the Proxy Kitchen! I tot it was closed since no one inside and the sign on the door display "close". Then I saw somebody walking from the inside then I ask if the restaurant already open or not. He gave us the signal to step inside.

The decoration for this restaurant is very simple yet attractive. They painted all black and yes, they did wrote down some of the menu on their wall. 



Part of the menu available at Proxy Kitchen. For me the price is quite reasonable. And their food taste very delicious. We ordered their famous Lambbretta (for my husband) and Curry Pasta for me. Oh, and Beef Poutine Fries for starter. 


The beef is very tender and I can taste the spices in it but not too much, just enough to make you keep on munching those fries. My husband really like this. 



Here is the Curry Pasta with some fried calamari. The taste is very mild and creamy. Oh, a little bit spicy and still yummy, but you need to avoid chocolaty drinks as it will make your stomach extra extra full.



This is the famous Lambretta marinated with their secret black sauce and served with green oil chilli. Chilli? Haha. Yeah, but dont worry as it is nooottt spicy at all! I think it taste kinda sweet. The lamb is very awesome. Tender and no need to wait for long for them to prepare this meal. The mashed potato and the gravy also nice. Very creamy!



Cake!!! We didnt order this because we were too full already. I keep on eyeing those cakes. Looks delicious! Hope next time I'll do the justice. Haha!


Do you see that green plate from jalan-Jalan Cari Makan? :)

Restoran Steamboat Malaya

Ada satu hari ni, my husband and I nak kena pergi hantar my mertua to the airport sebab dia ada trip to Vietnam. Kami lalu jalan yang takde tol menuju ke KLIA2, then masa berhenti dekat traffic lite simpang tiga (kiri : Salak Tinggi, kanan : KLIA2) my husband ternampak ada satu kedai makan nama Steamboat Malaya. Kami memang suka steamboat-steamboat ni, so masukkan la kedai ni dalam list cari makan kami. Before pergi tu kami ada baca review dekat blog orang yang dah pernah makan kat situ. Review dia menarik jugak la so beberapa hari lepas kami decided untuk pergi try. 

Restoran ni dibuka pukul 5pm+ so lepas solat asar kami terus bertolak. Bila sampai depan kedai tengok tak de orang lagi, mungkin sebab awal sangat kot. Sape nak dinner kul 5pm+ kan? Kami je kot yang breakfast + lunch + dinner at 5pm! Haha. Kami jalan masuk dalam kedai and pilih meja near to the food la, senang nak ulang alik! Then pelayan restoran datang tanya nak sup ape, ada dua pilihan iaitu sup ayam and tomyam. Kami pilih sup ayam. 

Sebelum pelayan tu datang balik ke meja kami untuk tunag sup tu, I nak betulkan kedudukan mangkuk sup tu sebab that time position nya terbalik. Bila lepas betulkan mangkuk tu, I tengok ada kesan hitam dekat tangan I. Pelik mana datang plak kesan hitam ni. I suruh husband amikkan tissue and saje test lap mangkuk tu and guess whatttttttt? Hitammm ok!! Kesan hitam tu datangnya dari mangkuk steamboat. Rasa dah tak lalu nak makan kat situ. But then ada pelayan yang tengah mop lantai nampak my reaction and dia suruh another pelayan tukar the bowl. 


I ingat the new bowl ni bersih la, skali lagi amik tissue and lap, still ada kesan hitam. Hmm. Sempat jugak calit kat tempat grill tu (bahagian tepi sebab kat tengah tu dorang dah sapu minyak), kesan hitam tu ada jugak! I told my husband, dorang ni cuci ke tak sebenarnya alatan steamboat dorang ni. Kami continue makan tapi I x berapa nak makan sangat sebab duk terpikir pasal kesan hitam tu and I focus more makan benda-benda grill. My husband makan yang steamboat. After a while, I cedok sup sebab nak rasa sup ayam tu and I nampak yang color sup tu pon dah berubah ke color hitam. Macam ada dot dot hitam bercampur dengan kuah sup tu and ada lekat-lekat dekat makanan yang kite rendam. I suruh my husband untuk jangan hirup sup tu sebab mcm dah tak lalu nak makan tengok keadaan sup tu. 




Kiri : Sos Malaya, Kanan : Sos Prima

Rasa membazir je plak. I makan benda yang dah ready made such as kuey teow goreng, nasi goreng, mee goreng, ice-cream, abc.. Bagi I, marinate dorang memang sedap, especially ayam. Oh ye, my husband cakap sotong dia hanyir. Not sure bout that. Udang pon ada jugak tapi kecik-kecik je la and tak berape fresh. Daging pon sedap and yang lain tu benda-benda normal untuk steamboat seperti crabstick, sosej, dimsum etc.. Btw, I like the sos very much especially sos prima and blackpepper sos dia sangatlah tak sedap. Hihi! Kalau pergi nanti cuba la sendiri ok. :)

Makeup Class with Leen Zakaria


Hola!

A week before my wedding I saw Leen Zakaria, the famous makeup artist posted on her instagram bout her makeup class. I wanted to join this session as I already missed the previous session due to work. (hmm.. hello? you are bout to get married and still have time to think bout makeup class??)

The class were held at The Strand Kota Damansara. There were 6 students, a model and of cos the teacher, Leen Zakaria herself. Please bring a note book and pen if you wanna join her class. Shes so generous with handful tips and tricks. 

I love her makeup. Simple, not too heavy and the most important thing is you can still see your face! I mean people know that is you. Not hantu kak limah! Hehe. 



Nurul Ain Yusof, the face of Al-Humaira as the model on that day. Shes so beautiful in real! 



And this is the model of haunted house! Haha. I did the makeup by myself during the hands on session. 



The power of makeup. Haunted house model is now a Victoria Secret angel. Hahaha!



Not gonna miss the chance of selfie with the sifu herself. Beautiful rite?

 

Its time for group hugs photos!
