Kabinet Dapur dari Max Budget

Assalamualaikum/Hello..

Masih mencari tempat untuk tempah kabinet dapur? Tak kesah la untuk rumah baru ke, rumah lama ke, rumah untuk disewakan ke.. Yang penting berbaloi dengan harga.

Untuk post kali ni, saya nak share pasal Max Budget Cabinet, kedai yang saya hire untuk kabinet rumah. Saya memang tak tahu kewujudan kedai ni, makcik saya yang perkenalkan sebab rakan sekerja makcik saya ni ambil tempahan kabinet as part time. Saya contact la wakil kedai Max Budget Cabinet untuk set appointment amik ukuran dan sebut harga.Yang bagusnya dorang ni, saya just nak bagi anggaran ukuran tapi they insist to come. Baru la dapat measurement yang betol. Tak de charge pon kalau panggil dorang datang ukur. 

Selesai ambil ukuran, saya bagi la specification yang saya nak such as jenis kabinet samada 3G, 4G, melamim or solid wood, then jenis top yang saya nak.. solid surface ke, granite ke, marble ke.. dan macam-macam lagi. Biasa la, angan-angan tu perlu tapi tak semua angan-angan tu boleh tercapai kannn.. Maksud saya, saya ada request nak add on accessories seperti pull out shelves, rak pinggan kat base kabinet dan lain-lain.. ala, yang macam kita tengok kat katalog or gamba-gamba dalam deco magazine tu.. Alhamdulillah, pekerja owner Max Budget sendiri turun and akan bagi komen based on requirement kita, adakah seusai dengan keluasan dapur, jimatkan ruang and arrangement. Kadang-kadang kita tak tau requirement kita tu possible ke tak, ada yang jenis hentam je buat, menanggungnya kita lah nanti.

Sebagai contoh, saya suka material solid wood dan top dari jenis granite. Ada certain kedai yang saya survey (almost 10 kedai) cakap ok can can can.. Info yang saya dapat dari Max budget Cabinet adalah, boleh je nak buat combination tu, tapi mostly dalam 10 tahun macam tu top akan turun sebab granite kan berat. Saya pulak bukan nak tukar design kabinet 10 tahun sekali, jadi saya akhirnya memilih untuk amik solid surface. Lagi satu contoh dengan pull out yang macam gamba kat bawah ni, dorang tak cadangkan sebab makan space, and satu lagi bila pull out tu bercantum dengan pintu kabinet lama kelamaan pintu kabinet akan turun disebabkan muatan yang kita isi dalam tu. Dah ada kes sedemikian sebelum ni.. Dorang buatkan jugak pull out tu tapi tak bercantum dengan pintu kabinet. Tak semua accessories tu akan secantik mata memandang ye. Saya ingat lagi satu kedai ni cakap "memang design sekarang mcm ni... sangat bagus!". Harga benda alah (lebih kurang gambar kat bawah) tu pon dah seribu lebih kalau nak install, then saya pergi kedai lain, aunty tu cakap dia x suggest benda alah ni sebab kalau satu rosak the whole thing kena tukaqqqq! Seriously lain kedai, lain explanation dorang. So berhati-hati dalam membuat keputusan.


Atas : pull out yang sepatutnya..
Bawah : "benda alah" yang kalau satu rosak kena ganti the whole thing..


Sebab saya memilih Max Budget Cabinet ni adalah, mereka sangat easy to deal with and saya tak payah nak g ke kilang atau kedai dorang. Dorang datang rumah bawak semua katalog yang diperlukan. Jimat masa kita jugak kan macam ni. Bagi saya mereka sangat tau ape yang dorang buat. Salah seorang pekerja Max Budget Cabinet yang melakukan pemasangan di rumah saya sangat teliti dan cermat. Lupa nama abang tu, tapi kerja dia memang puas hati.. Lebih kurang kita tak sempat nak complain dia dah complain dulu.. Hihi.. 

Saya buat semua sekali dengan Max Budget Cabinet (wardrobe 3 bilik + kabinet dapur). Senang sekali harung!

Dapur : L shape 7.5 x 12 kaki (solid wood + solid surface)
Master bedroom : 9 kaki (sliding frosted glass + mirror)
Bilik 1 & 2 : 5 kaki (sliding frosted glass)

FOTD : NARS Llipstick & Illuminator


Assalamualaikum/Hello!

Bila pegi Midvalley je, singgah NARS.. Cuci mata and sambil-sambil tanya stock duo eyeshadow (Surabaya) yang famous tu available ke tak. Dah 3-4 kali dah tanya memang tak pernah ada stock. So I decided to put my name under the waiting list, 3 pages before reaching my name to be exact! Its okay.. saya sabar menanti.. Hahaha!

Tapiii kali ni I tak pulang dengan tangan kosong.. Hihi. I bought 2 benda iaitu NARS lipstick in Anita (staff NARS cakap this shades is hot selling, lucky ada stock) and Illuminator in Copacabana.

I'm looking for a ndue* lipstick yang sesuai dengan I of cos. And yang boleh pakai like every day to the office, jalan-jalan or event. At first, the staff suggest this one color (forgot the name) and it turned out too bright for my skin. I ask for the warmer color and she gave me Anita. Where were u all this while "Anita"? Haha. Seriously, I'm in LOVEEE with this color. Not so brownish and not too pinkish. I love the texture too, soft, easy to apply and moist. 

PERFECT!



And this is me main makeup-makeup.. Haha.. Testing the illuminator and lipstick. I mixed the illuminator dengan foundation and yes, this is nothing new, not a secret. Ramai yang buat mcm ni as they said nampak glowing. Btw, I think this is my first time I managed to make my stubborn eyebrow similar to the other one. Yayy to me!

Loose Powder : Laura Mercier
Powder : Makeup Forever
Eyeshadow : Marc Jacobs

April Skin No.23 (Natural) Review


Assalamualaikum/Hello!

I dont know how to start this entry with. Either excited feeling or guilty feeling.. Hmm, I think I'll proceed with the excited feeling for start. I came to know about April Skin from my sister. What is that? New brand? How it looks like? At first I dont even bother bout it until one day I was on instagram "stalking" some make up stuff then I saw a photo and description describing something similar to what my sister told me. Then the itchy hand started to text the seller asking bout it. Seeing that April Skin only have 3 shades, I'm having doubt that it will suit my skin. So it ends there.

New day, new week.. my hands still itchy, my mind still on it! Again I "stalk" the instagram and decided to buy NOT April Skin but Doctorcos! So I made payment and later when the parcel arrived I was excited to open it and found out my Doctorcos turned into April Skin! Like seriously!?? I texted the seller informing her bout the problem and she ask me to send it back to her if I dont want it. She mislooked my whatsapp text and that was the reason why she sent me April Skin instead Doctorcos. Actually after payment made, I did ask her bout the availability of April Skin as our last conversation so I guess she assume/mistakenly think I ordered April Skin.


Oh gosh, it seems like April Skin is destined for me. Haha! And I cant resist the curiousity inside me to check out on the product. After a while I decided to accept April Skin and bought the 60ml Doctorcos instead of 110ml and it cost me another RM69. My office friend told me that I am the type of person who like to buy things.. Hehe! But waittt, who doesn’t riteeeee? :)

So the next day Im experimenting my April Skin to the office! First application made me want to pass out! Seriously it is a big different between the shades that I purchased and my skin tone. FYI, I choose number 23 (Natural) and still it too bright for me. This is a Korean brand and of cos it suit Korean skin tone lah. I tried to ease my heart saying that later it will blend well with my skin. I seriously apply a thin layer of the powder. At the office I noticed some of my office mate that are quite close to me able to identify the changes on my face. Hahahahha! Damn it’s obvious huh? The worst part is, a guy friend of mine with his silly face reaction said to me "DID U BLEACH UR FACE?". Damn u friend and April Skin. Hahahahahahahaha! However I managed to stay strong and survived the day.


So now is the guilty part.. of wasting money buying product that doesnt suit me! I dont know what to do with it, of cos I cant sell it due to hygiene issue. Hmm, until then I think I will try to minimize the amount to be applied on my face or some other way to make it NOT obvious. Use it as a foundation perhaps?  Oh yeah, one thing I noticed during my experimental period, this thing is sort of water proof and really really need makeup remover to remove it. So be careful especially when u need to take the ablution for prayers.

Wondering how my face/skin with April Skin?

In term of coverage, you can see as below. My scar is still visible. This is just a thin layer application and I think I obviously cant apply much of it as it will make my skin brighterrrr to another tone! I guess if you are having fairer skin than mine, you can easily cover the scar without effecting the skin tone.


And here is the comparison side by side, you can see the differences rite? Seriously I am not comfortable with this magic powder. I dont really like smell too. Hmm. So my conclusion isss.. April Skin no.23 Natural is not that natural for medium-dark skin tone. But still, its up to the individual rite.. One thing for sure it is not for me.. :)
 

Have you tried this product? Comment below yea..

Langsir dari Azizah Hias, Bangi

Assalamualaikum/Hello!

Cant believe yang saya akan buat post berkaitan dengan rumah. Heee.. malas sebenarnya tapi bila dipikirkan balik susahnya nak cari kedai-kedai terutamanya yang dapat memberikan service yang bagus, kerja teliti and hasil yang berkualiti ni.. rasanya tak salah la kalau nak berkongsi maklumat rite..? 

Okay, kisah saya cari langsir rumah ni agak mencabar wallet la jugak. Memula memang cari online je, buat list kedai yang blogger suggest then saya g site visit. Hehe. Leceh jugak la nak ke sana sini. Then one day, abg grill saya hire ada suggest few tempat kat Bangi for langsir. Salah satunya adalah Azizah Hias yang terletak kat Seksyen 8 Bangi, sebelah CIMB bank. Kedai Kak Zah ni rasanya dah memang well known la kot untuk warga Bangi. My first impression mesti kedai ni mahal, and tak nak layan iols ni. But so far Alhamdulillah semuanya ok.

Part mahal tu saya tak tau nak cakap, sebab depends on jenis kain la kan. Or design lama sket dorang bleh bagi diskaun. Saya ada g satu kedai kat area Tesco Ampang, sebab based on blog cakap kedai tu ada 50%. Ingatkan for certain time but seems like for the whole year jeee. Taktik nak bagi nampak murah la tu. So masa my first visit kedai Kak Zah tu nak tau quotation je, standard procedure la kann. Hihi. Tapi malangnya saya lupa bawak ukuran tingkap rumah, yang ada masa tu quotation harga dari kedai Ampang tu la. Terpaksa la bagi.. Pastu Kak Zah tanya lebar/labuh kain ni brape yg sampai harga RM100+ sebab as per Kak Zah lagi kalau yang around 110cm (xingat exactly) mcm tu xde la harga smpi RM100+. Standard harga RM40-80. Then now I tau la kenapa dia bagi 50% tu. :)

After first visit tu saya bagi tau my husband yang saya nak tempah langsir ngn Kak Zah. Once husband bagi green light I went to the kedai for the second time untuk pilih kain and bawa ukuran yang betol. Untuk deposit Kak Zah amik 40% and balance bayar once dah siap pasang. Later saya bagi details harga from Azizah Hias untuk rujukan ye. *Scroll sampai bawah*

After 2 weeks la lebih kurang, saya call untuk tanya status and set date pemasangan. Excited nak tgk hasilnya. Heee. 



Atas : Jenis kain dan color yang saya pilih, blackout curtain in grey
Bawah : Yang ni plak sheer yg berkenan di hati



Atas : Ni design rod yg saya pilih. Ada 3 color, gold, silver and this one (tak tau color ape)
Bawah : Pekerja Azizah Hias in action. 2 orang pekerja datang for installation



Atas : Tengah pasang sheer.
Bawah : Pasang langsir plak, tapi malangnya sedikit senteng. Tapi dorang betolkan balik dengan menurukan rod langsir. Then baru la okay.. paras lantai. :)



Atas : Haaa, ni nampak jelas ke-sentengan langsir tu
Bawah : Setel pasang langsir!



Atas : Tadaaaaa.. The result!
Bawah : This one for master bedroom. Tak boleh nak ikat cantik-cantik sebab ada aircond punya wiring terpacak keluar kat situ. Takot koyak plak langsir nanti. 



Atas : Ni rod & railing sahaja untuk bilik 2 & 3. Nak pi beli langsir ready made je. :)

So here is the ringkasan harga from Azizah Hias :

Langsir (blackout) - RM70 per meter
Sheer - RM38 per meter
Rod (satu set) - sliding : RM224, master bedroom : RM168, room 1 & 2 : RM240)
Railing (heavy duty) - sliding : RM57, master bedroom : RM44, room 1 & 2 : RM64)
Installation charge - RM250 

Kesimpulannya, saya memang puas hati dengan service dan kualiti dari Azizah Hias. Yang macam saya cerita tadi, pekerja Kak Zah salah pasang rod sedikit tinggi then dia betulkan and touch up elok-elok supaya tak nampak kesannya. Both pekerja memang teliti dan tau ape yang dorang buat. Layanan pekerja dan juga dari Kak Zah sendiri memang tip top walaupon saya tak amik langsir and sheer untuk satu rumah, hanya sliding dan master bedroom. Ok la kan, setengah kedai tu tak layan kalau x amik full set.. :)

Penawar Migrain

Assalamualaikum/Hello!

Lama sangat dah ni tak update blog. First, sebab busy and second sebab malas nothing much nak update. Setelah memaksa diri untuk update blog, harini I nak share satu tips yang sangat mujarab (dah macam nak jual ubat). Haha! 

So here it goes.. ada this one week I was on night shift setelah hampir 4 bulan tak kerja malam, memang huru hara la sekejap system badan ni. Nak dijadikan cerita, bila shift malam I dah tamat, I balik umah and macam biasa la terus tido. Ngantok sangat-sangat! Tapiii.. masa nak tido tu otak asyik duk fikir pasal macam-macam benda and buatkan I susah nak tdo. Jadi macam tido-tido ayam pulak. Pastu tiba-tiba dengar orang ketuk pintu, rasanya xde online shopping lately. Hee! Sambil mamai tu g tengok sape yang datang, sekali memang abg posmen. Rupanya baju yang I tempah manik tu yang sampai. Hihi. Time ni dah rasa sakit kepala, then I sambung tido balik. Around 5 tersedar dari tido, nasib baik xyah solat. Haha. Perut pulak dah kruk kruk kelaparan, I g masak maggi asam laksa letak cili satu je ponnn, tapi pedas tak hengatt! Then mandi siap-siap sebab malam nanti nak masuk office. Sambil tunggu masuk office, I tengok tv. Time tu dah start rasa sakit kepala tapi tak teruk sangat. So I gagahkan diri untuk ke office. Bila dah odw ke office tu makin teruk pulak sakit kepala, tambah-tambah bila terkena cahaya lampu kereta or lampu jalan. Haha, nak sampai je kat office tu makin kuat rasa nak muntah, terus tak jadi g office and tukar direction g clinic. I singgah umah pick up my husband and he drove me to the clinic.

I bagi tau doktor yang I sakit kepala and he mmg agree la yang I kena migrain. Dia bagi ubat tahan muntah n tahan sakit. Balik umah I terus telan ubat tu and tido tapi still tak hilang lagi rasa sakit tu next morning. Hmm. Second night I went to the same clinic, this time doktor lain pulak. He gave me ubat yang higher dose katanya. Again, balik umah terus telan and tido. Again, next morning masih tak hilang. On the third day, my husband suruh g hospital/klinik kesihatan gomen. So we went there la, luckily tak ramai sangat. And doktor tu pon cakap memang migrain, dia suh check tekanan darah and paras gula. Alhamdulillah both result normal. My husband tanya doktor tu xleh check darah or some other things ke then doktor tu cakap dia tak leh nak hantar I g buat scanning semua la sebab I takde rekod kat klinik kesihatan tu for migrain. If kerap then yes she will send me for scanning. So nothing much can be done laa.. Amik ubat kat farmasi then balik hampa. Ubat yg doktor ni bagi agak mengantok and once dah better tak boleh makan dah. So I sempat makan for another 2 days tapi still rasa sakit kepala kat certain part and muka dah mcm zombie pon ada, lesu je! 

Masa kat office on Monday (this time on day shift), mmg obvious lesu my face and some of my friends cakap pucat. Hmm. I received whatsapp message from my husband, dia bagi satu blog link ni. I baca la blog tu and ada mention suruh baca surah Al-Falaq, insyaAllah boleh hilangkan sakit migrain. I was like, okay lets try it out.. First baca, ada rasa something yang hard to explain. Mungkin mcm simpulan yang sekat sesuatu aliran terbuka, yeah something like that. Then I teruskan mebaca surah Al-Falaq for few times and sumpah rasa sakit tu makin hilang and lenyap macam tu je. I was so excited telling my husband bout it. Ya Allah, dah 5 days migrain akhirnyaaaa sakit tu hilang!! Alhamdulillah.. powerful betol ayat al-Qur'an ni kan.. :)

Terima kasih ye empunya blog for sharing something incredible.

Macam mana nak bersihkan berus makeup?


Muahahah.. Cuci berus makeup guna Sunlight?? Yerpp!! I guna sabun cuci pinggan brand Sunlight utk bersihkan my makeup brush. 

Ada one day ni I pergi umah kawan I sebab dia ajak and nak conteng (makeup) muka I. Nak polish skills la tuuu.. Hehe! I suka dia punya makeup, cantik! Kalau sape-sape nak book her for your big day ke, events ke.. sila contact dia okay.. Nahh, I bagi link to her instagram - BELLAHUDD

Bila I kat umah my friend ni, I tengok her makeup brush bersih jerrr.. I ask her how to clean them and she told me guna sabun cuci pinggan! I was likee whaaattttt? I forgot sape yang advise her buat macam tu, tapi that someone tu adalah professional makeup artist. I actually risau berus tu rosak but my friend convinced me yang ianya ok sebab Sunlight or other brand pon ok asalkan lembut pada tangan. Plus sabun cuci pinggan kan boleh tanggalkan kesan-kesan minyak, so senang la nak hilangkan kesan foundation etc kat berus tu.

Sunlight dah beli, ape tunggu lagii.. Jom cuci.. :)


Below : nampak tak air tu dah macam color tea tarik? 3 brushes dah mcm tu colornya.. adoi!


Below : nampak tak perbezaan yang agak ketara terjadi selepas proses permbersihan.


Ni are the rest.. Nak air dry kan semua berus ni. Actually sebelum ni I ada guna brush cleanser dari Sephora. Yang just spray and lap dengan tissue, memang senang tapi kesan kotoran still there. Berus tu masih ada color foundation, tak totally bersih. 

So, macam mana uolls bersihkan berus makeup uolls?

Hammam Spa, Bangsar Village II

I made reservation at this famous Hammam Spa a month earlier than the actual date. A month? Who did that? Haha. Ye la, I takot full slot pulak and thats the only time yang my friend and I free. Shes getting married soon. 14 November 2015 to be exact. So I decided to treat her with a spa session before her big day. 

I booked for Hammam and Gommage pakej. We arrived at the spa on time. Tak sempat nak duduk, the staff ask us to straight away change our clothes. We were accompanied to our locker and put all of our stuff there. They provide us with a disposable bra & underwear, bathrobe and slipper. Then we were directed to go to the "heaven"! Hehe. There are 2 rooms, one for the bath ceremony and the other one is for steaming I guess (to lay down on the warm marble). Both are located in one big room. At first memang my friend and I je, then datang another 2 more chinese lady. Malu oi mandi ramai-ramai! After mandi both lady tu di bawa ke steam room. Patutnya kami pon kena g sana but I rasa bcos of the space limitation, kami dibaringkan dekat marble area tempat mandi je..


Okay let me story a little bit bout the steps. First, the staff akan mandikan kita. She will pour the water kat badan and rambut but u can choose not to basahkan rambut. They will provide a shower cap nanti. I was shocked when she poured the warm water tu sebab my body were in the aircond/cold temperature then suddenly kena jirus dengan warm water. I rasa air tu panas gilaaa! After mandi, the Moroccan lady nama Nadia sapukan Moroccan Black Soap pada badan kita and  suruh kita baring on the warm marble for 15 minutes I guess. Then she came with the Hammam glove and scrub our body. As per the review I read earlier they said the glove macam kertas pasir! Haha. U can see the dirt or kulit mati kat atas marble tu nanti. I macam, "wuttttt? aku x mandi/scrub ke selama ni?". Oh please inform them jangan scrub kat sensitive part such as n*ppl*s. Totally no or u will regret it. As for me I ingat memang dia tak akan touch that sensitive part, but dia just zuppp and I macam terjerit sebab sakitttt! My friend luka okayyy! After dah selesai scrub, kita dimandikan lagi and rambut pon akan dishampoo sekali. Sooo.. thats all bout the Hammam & Gommage. Hee! Then the staff akan sediakan tea and baklava. I think ni baklava yang paling sedap I pernah try, not too sweet! Boleh la chillex for a while kat kerusi ala-ala daybed tu before g tukar baju.

After the tea session, kami kembali ke changing room untuk bersiap, dont worry ada hair dryer, disediakan kalau u choose untuk basahkan rambut. Masa tengah bersiap tu I heard someone knocking on our door. I ingatkan their staff and I said kejap.. sebab my friend tengah nak pakai baju. But she said its fine to open the door, sbb xde nampak lelaki pon tadi. Luckily I tunggu jugak dia pakai baju and open the door and we were surprised tengok ada lelaki in a bathrobe! Cepat-cepat I tutup balik pintu changing room tu. Urghhh this is so not cool! Memang we were lucky, kalau kami "chillex" lama kat luar tu confirm akan "chillex" skali dengan that guy! Or maybe will be sharing the bath room together???

Eventho I suka spa ni, I still dont like their policy (kot) of mixing both gender. Hmm, maybe my fault sbb x tanya if ada lelaki buat appointment (couple spa) on that day. Tapiii arghhh memang tak terfikir la kann akan terserempak dengan lelaki kat dalam tu. Its better for them utk buat satu bilik khas utk couple sekali dengan semua kelengkapan yang diperlukan kat dalam tu so they can have their own privacy, annnndd kami pon can have our own "privacy". Duhhh..
