✈ Cebu ♡ [pt. I] ✈


Visited this gorgeous island of the Philippines.
Was pretty stoked as it was my first time there, let alone the Philippines. I've heard tons of good reviews about the food, people and of course the beaches!


We arrived at noon but it was gloomy the time we got there, which was a major downer as I was looking forward to a bright sunny getaway. 


Nevertheless we checked into our hotel which was opposite Ayala Mall. One of the biggest mall in Cebu apparently, or so I was told.



It was really pretty, there's a garden in the mall! Eateries, restaurants, fast food chains surrounded the garden. Each specializing a different cuisine. You can find local delicacies to Taiwanese burgers, even Australian cooking!



We settled down at Gerry's Grill for some grilled seafood. Been told that they have some pretty awesome stuff! I was super hungry and I remember waiting anxiously to dig in.



Grilled Squid and Pork.

Can you believe the squid only costed RM20 and it the portion was HUGE. It was so fresh it didn't take a lot of effort chewing the meat, and oh the pork, heavenly!


Fried rice with crabmeat. 
Looks like your average fried rice but woah was it packed with flavours.

Only a few hours in Cebu and I was loving it already!

We spent the evening walking around Ayala Mall and grocery shopping, I know right? Well, I have this thing where I love checking out 7Eleven's and grocery shops. You never know what you will find! 


So many variations of Pocky, Pretz and Cup Noodles!
The supermarket in Ayala Mall was definitely spoiling me with choices of everything.
Bought some snacks to last us the whole week.

The next day, we woke up to another gloomy day. 
MAJOR BUMMER.


Nevertheless we headed out to explore the beautiful city of Cebu.


We visited a beautiful temple on a hill overlooking Cebu town.




It was nice of the temple staffs to hand us umbrella so we wouldn't get wet under the rain.
We managed to explore the temples surroundings and Erin did some prayers while I wandered around.

It was really serene and calming to be in a place like this.


Next we stopped by Fort San Pedro



"Fuerza de San Pedro is a military defence structure, built by Spanish and indigenous Cebuano labourers under the command of Spanish conquistador, Miguel López de Legazpi and the Spanish Government in Cebu."


Will continue this post with a part two soon!

Till then, x.

F1 Weekend ♡ 2014


Oh boy did I have so much fun during the Malaysia F1 Weekend! From Johnnie Walker's Circuit Lounge to Mscape Paddock Finale Race on Sunday, and finally F1 After Party Concert feat. Calvin Harris. I was so exhausted after everything but it was my fault as I couldn't get sufficient sleep on Saturday night which means I was awake for more than 48 hours!

Anyways let's start off with Johnnie Walker Circuit Lounge.


One of the most sought after parties of the year, I was looking forward to it!


Howie and I.


Sarah, Ashley, myself and Mabel.


Talented and gorgeous dancers!


Gold Label Reserve anybody? ;)


It's been a while since I've seen Mynn!


Mabel and I enjoying our cocktails .


Yours truly ♡

Next up MScape First Class Paddock, Sunday.
It was the final day for the F1 races, it is also the most exciting one!
I had to be up at 7am as we had to all meet up at Zouk Club KL where a bus would pick everyone up and head to Sepang.


It was an early morning but all smiles from me as I was excited!

After being served a hearty breakfast we headed down for a pit walk, everyone was on their toes to spot a famous celebrity.



Shen Yee, Mabel and myself.

It was scorching hot at the Pit Lane, and I felt my skin being penetrated by tons of sun rays. I was worried of getting blisters like the last time I felt this much heat. & no it's not the same when I suntan. This was unbearable!

Nevertheless, we carried on our walk.


The usual gang!

We had a scrumptious buffet lunch, and yummy afternoon tea.
MScape always knows how to spoil us!

We left with a Ferrari Puma bag, caps, USB drives, and awesome memories.


Sadly Ferrari didn't win but there's always next year!

Headed back to KL, got freshen up, changed, take away McD's and then it's back to Sepang.
I was so tired, I almost gave up but I didn't want to miss out on my favourite DJ!

Ahhh I felt the jitters all the way to SIC.


Howie and I ♡

The boyfriend was not any less fatigue as I was, he was up the same time as me but he had Chinese prayers as it's All Souls Day for the Chinese people. Nevertheless we both wanted to be here, so we had to put up with it.


Calvin Harris started off the party with Feel So Close.


Oh lord, I was so exciteddd I almost teared!



Brenda and I.


He played infamous remixes .


and also his all the songs he was famous for.


The music was awesome, the lasers were cray cray, even the boyfriend, who isn't as big of a fan as me said he was darn good. Better than the set he played at Stereosonic but the crowd was half dead. They wasn't serving alcohol at the venue, and I think most of the crowd needed that to party, which is really sad as I was jumping up and down, singing along and having fun.


Howie and Louis.

Though everyone got really pumped up for this.. 


We're underrr control... dududuuuu ~

Excuse my shaky hands, I've never recorded much of his life sets, though this is my third time seeing him. And I wanted to remember it anyhow haha.


Take 1#


Take 2#

Howie, Alvin, myself, Puiyee and Jeehoe.

I CRIED WHEN HE PLAYED THIS !


Hahaha you must thing I am lame, but this song brings me back to one very lovely memory. 
Ahh, I wish I could relive that once again. Well, I knew the party was ending at 11pm, it was almost time and I doubt he's playing Sweet Nothing as the last song cause of his new track Summer but OMG was I jumping so happily dancing singing to this song when it came on! Luckily Louis recorded this for me :p


It was an awesome weekend. 
It was an awesome show.
It was an awesome set,
though he never play Summer , I still loved it. And I am not being bias, ask anyone who was there for the music and not just to party or because it's a rave.

Till then!

x

I hope I'll see him soon again :')

Smile Brilliant ♡ professional teeth whitening

The average consumer does not understand how teeth whitening works. Those who are left disapointed after use may actually never acheive a white smile no matter the brand or particular product. Smile Brilliant provides lab direct, custom-fitted teeth whitening trays and whitening gel from the comforts of home. There is no need to visit a dentist and spend $600+ on the same professional teeth whitening service for something you can perform from the comfort of your home! 


 I've received a LED Light + Pen kit also known as the LED Teeth Whitening System by the wonderful people from Smile Briliant . I was excited as I do have stains on my teeth that I would love to remove. A smile isn't a smile without shiny white teeth.

The LED Teeth Whitening System by Smile Brilliant is perfect for those who want great tooth whitening results but are on a budget. 


The LED system is competitively priced when compared to popular whitening strips sold at your local grocer; however, it is far more effective due to its 22% carbamide peroxide tooth whitening gel and high strength LED light which accelerates the whitening process. With hundreds of reviews and thousands of satisfied customers, the LED teeth whitening system is a superior alternative to over-the-counter whitening products.


The LCD Whitening System includes :


1.High Intensity LED Accelerator Light: – Accelerates the teeth whitening process. The LED teeth whitening light has an estimated run time of 48 hours on one set of batteries before replacement batteries are needed.


2. Teeth Whitening Gel Pen – Convenient, 4ml whitening pen (brush-on applicator) with 22% professional strength whitening gel.


2. Lip & Cheek Protector – Upper and lower protective tray that helps prevents gel mess.
In just a few easy steps, you can achieve that beautiful smile you've been wanting!


1# Pull off the teeth whitening pen cap and twist the bottom of the whitening pen counter clockwise to move the whitening gel to the tip of the pen.


2# Apply Whitening Gel! Paint the whitening gel evenly onto the front surface of your front upper and lower teeth. Ensure you spread the bleaching gel evenly and along the gum lines as well as in the crevices where your teeth come together. Implementing these tactics will help prevent splotchy results.


3# 
Insert Lip Guard. For the 5th step insert the protective lip guard. The guard will likely come in contact with the gel but avoid rubbing to ensure the gel stays in contact with the teeth for the duration of your teeth whitening session.


4# 

Whiten Your Teeth! Place the LED light up to your teeth and wrap your lips around the plastic guard. Try not to rub the light against the lip guard to keep from moving the gel out of place. Then turn the light on by pressing the button on the top!
(p/s : I know I look silly!)
Treatment times vary based on sensitivity levels and your schedule but it is recommended you leave the light in your mouth for the first 20-40 minutes and gel and protective tray for 1-3 hours.
 
Many people can see a difference after the first teeth whitening session. Dramatic results usually come in 5 to 6 days. It is recommended that the initial teeth whitening process be continued for 12 consecutive days. After those 12 days, you only need to whiten your teeth as often as you want. If you want a continuous white smile, then you will need to whiten at least once a month. If you just want your teeth white for special occasions, then whiten them the night before and 30 minutes before the event. Great for people who are on the go and do not have that much time to spent on a dentists chair!
