Went to Suria Sabah last week (Saturday) to visit my collage's booth. Da puas sembang dengan staff yang jaga booth tu, aku dengan Bibi round la pusing mall sebab da jarang kan masuk Suria Sabah tu.
Then terjumpa (terlimpas) satu cafe ni yang sememangnya aku sangat alert sebab berkonsepkan Korean cafe! Yes, I was right! I found another cafe that served bingsu (ice shaved) after the one in Oceanus Mall which is Nunpat.
This is Beans N Beans Cafe (Korean Cafe) that I've been looking for. Well, in Sabah its kinda hard to find Korean food which is halal and can be eaten by Muslims..So cafe ni salah satu yang menjadi sasaran untuk melegakan tekak yang da kering lepas borak panjang dengan staff UCSF di booth.
Ajak la bibi masuk cafe ni sebab teringin sangat nak makan bingsu. Selalu nak pergi kat Nunpat tu asyik full je seat sebab ramai sangat yang datang. Kali ni da alang-alang nampak yang paling terdekat maka jom lah kita order.
They serve a different type of bingsu. Ada bingsu red bean, choco bingsu, cheese, green tea and coffee bingsu. Aku n bibi decide nak rasa choco bingsu (aku), dengan cheese bingsu (bibi). Konsep sama dengan CaffeBene yang aku selalu pegi kat Sunway Piramid tu. Standard ar Korea punya style order, lepas da bagi order kat kaunter, dorang akan bagi satu alat penggera yang ada set no.order kita.
Bila benda tu vibrate, tu tanda order kita dah siap, Tahu kan? Sapa yang pernah pegi mana-mana kafe Korean style memang biasa da dengan situasi tu
Ni la dia alat yang akan vibrate bila order kita dah siap. Tak tahu nama, sorry!
Sebulan juga terbiar blog ni...sibuk kejap ada yang minta tolong itu ini. Ada majlis sana sini.
Sekarang ni Mai nak khabar sikit pasal penjagaan kulit menjelang Ramadan ni. Ehh esok dah puasa tau! Kita semua tahan lapar haus seharian, kurang mineral dalam badan, kurang tenaga lepas tu orang tengok muka pun jadi kusam..haaaa mai ada tips nak kongsi dengan korang..
Dalam sibuk kita berpuasa dan hal-hal lain, penjagaan kulit jangan dibiarkan ye..
(Teringat masa puasa tahun lepas, mai berhadapan dengan masalah kulit yang teruk. Demam campak+kulit gatal da macam alergic tu memang uijan betul la) tapi sekarang alhamdulillah dah beransur sihat.
Mai nak kongsi satu scrub yang sangat sangat bagus untuk kulit dan badan. Terima kasih untuk tips asal yang dikongsi senior masa kat uni dulu Kak Iyan sebab share pasal scrub ni di instagram beliau dan membuat daku terbuka hati juga untuk mencuba. Haha
Sebelum ni bermesra dengan hampas teh aja (sebab bila minum teh, hampas yg segi empat tu rasa mcm berat hati nak buang awalnya laaaa) then decide tenyeh kat muka. Well berkesan juga tapi da terstop sebab da jarang minum teh.
Lepas da restock balik stok kopi kat dapur, asal masuk dapur ja mesti landing lama kejap mata tu tengok kat balang kopi. Kat rumah ni yang paling HANTU kopinya aku dengan dady la..yang lain tu so-so..
Lepas tengok kak iyan share DIY SCRUB KOPI tu aku pun terus godek2 dapur tengok bahan semua lengkap.
(Guna dalam 3 sudu)
(3-5 sudu gula)
Ikut tahap kemanisan korang nak laa..hehe bukan ni bukan sampai ke tahap nak rasa manis just nak balance kan gula dengan kopi tadi
(1-2 sudu sederhana untuk sebatikan gula dan kopi)
boleh tambah coconut oil
boleh tambah perahan buah lemon
boleh gantikan gula dengan madu. kalau tak mau guna olive oil boleh tukar dengan air
yang ni kiranya bahan-bahan tu kopi. madu dan air aje. Mix and gaul
Tenyeh dan gentel scub di tangan
Kulit tangan rasa lembut ja faktor olive yang membantu melembut dan menghaluskan lagi tanganku yang gebu ituuu
Kopi merupakan salah satu jenis minuman yang berasal dari ekstraksi biji tanaman kopi yang diproses melalui pengolahan. Selain mempunyai kandungan kafein, ternyata kopi juga mempunyai kandungan asam buah, asam organik, lemak, alkaloid, mineral, potasium, magnesium dan besi yang banyak bermanfaat bagi kecantikan wajah dan kulit.
Kopi bukan sahaja bermanfaat bagi kesihatan tapi bermanfaat bagi kecantikan tubuh, seperti kecantikan wajah, kecantikan kulit, kecantikan rambut dan sebagainya. Sebenarnya manfaat kopi tidak hanya untuk diminum, tetapi kopi juga boleh digunakan untuk merawat wajah dan tubuh badan.
Haaahh....kan da cakap?
Manfaat Kopi Bagi Kecantikan:
- Mencegah dan Mengurangkan Kerutan di Kulit - Menghaluskan Kulit - Mencegah Timbulnya Jerawat - Melembabkan Kulit - Membantu Menghilangkan Sel Kulit Mati - Menghilangkan Bau Badan - Menghilangkan Selulit - Menetralkan Kulit Yang Teriritasi - Memberikan Nutrisi pada Kulit
Kelebihan kopi yang orang banyak tak tau sebab sibuk cakap kopi tu tak bagus untuk kesihatan la, orang tua ja yang minum, gigi boleh kuning kalau minum selalu. Then tukar la for another good things untuk kesihatan kulit kan.
Inilah hasil scrub buatan sendiri.
Very easy right? Senang sangat. Sambil tengok tv pun boleh buat scrub ni. Ikut kerajinan korang la nak buat dalam seminggu berapa kali. Kalau hari-hari buat pun tiada masalah bukan jadi kesalahan pun. Kalau nak laa, korang boleh buat sebelum mandi tu korang scrub satu badan sental, tenyeh kat anggota badan yang korang nak. Biar sekejap, baru cuci.
Bau dan aroma dari kopi yang dah disental kat badan tu boleh buat korang tenang tau untuk seketika. fefeling macam dekat spa tengah buat treatment badan tuuh. Aku sarankan korang cuba sendiri. Try and tak rugi pun sebab boleh jimat duit dan tengok hasil sendiri yang dijamin korang sendiri akan puas hati.
Agak-agakla kan ada tak yang nak beli kalau jual sebalang macam ni rm5?
P/s: Esok dah puasa. Selamat berpuasa semua umat Islam di Malaysia dan seluruh dunia. Ahlan wasahlan ya Ramadan Kareem.
Hi all..it's been two week since I met them in person.
And I still can't move on from Royal Pirates.
HELP ME GUYS!
Okay now I'm gonna share few moment of interaction between me and Royal Pirates members.
Let's start from the first meeting when they arrived at the KKIA Terminal one. I might probably shared this before not now I just want to make it short and memorable.
1. They safely reach my states around 9 PM and yet me and other fans need to wait a bit since they need to go through the immigration and all. around 9.30 PM finally we able to see them from inside. They still waiting for their luggage and so on. I managed to captured few seconds video of them. I can see James, Moon and their stylist at that time but Sooyoon can't be seen yet. James look so tall even other fans also surprised with his height.
3 guys have been waiting at the same place as us and they are the bodyguard paid to take care of them, and make sure they are safe and managed to get seat on their awaited vans outside the airport. When they finally step out from the arrival hall, James is in front and he waved at my camera or I mean the place where I stood. After that I stop recording and immediately walking towards him to pass him my gift. He took it and bend his body and bow while saying kumawo (thank you) to me. Arrrhh James is so sweet. And behind him is my ultimate bias Sooyoon which is also wearing mask with James.
And I don't realize that we are walking by side. I do call his name when at first he looking down. He look at me and give me thumbs up while me capturing that moment. I could be froze at that time because we are sooo close!
And James the tall boys is lead at the front until I forgot Moon was at the back behind Sooyoon.
We sending them until their vans took off from the airport.
2. The second interaction I had with Royal Pirates during the meet and greet session. Since I won the pass, me and the other winners been taken to another place far from the venue which is located at the hotel they've been staying (Klagan residence of 1Borneo). When we reach the area I saw a lot of fans (winner from another contest) are queuing for the meet and greeting. And until our turn to see them, I felt so nervous. Because it is the second times i'm gonna met them in person after the airport encounter.
But the meet greet session is too short I think around 5 minutes only. We stand together in group and have a group photo with them. At first, I went to Sooyoon side where I want to stand next to him, but sadly, there's a fans already took the spot. So I decide to stand in front of him (well i'm quite short) so it does not blocking them because they were tall after all. And I realize that me and Sooyoon have same color outfit which is he wearing a grey jacket and i'm wearing a grey hijab (tudung bawal). hehee coincidence much huh...
after that we have a chat for a while with the members, the other fans have a handshake with them. I try to talk a bit but at that time, a staff told us that times up and we need to leave. So I went back to them to say sorry. I think Moon heard that i said "I'm sorry that I can't have a handshake with you guys' and he nod his head. Then Sooyoon saw me and immediately reach out his hand in front of me for handshake. I mouthing sorry to him and he understand that while said it's okay and smile. Gosshh!! That smile make my heart skip a beat..really! Then I waving back to them and joining the other fans and went back to the venue.
Almost one hour of performance is worth to wait it. They really throw themselves into the showcase and I can see that they also enjoying the show and saw that the venue is full house. Fans and public are watching them at the Atrium..I'm so proud. They perform five total of songs started with Shout Out, Love Toxic, Seoul Hillbilly, Haru and they're back on the stage for encore and perform Drawing The Line English version. After that, the fansign session begin where the fans that have purchased the Love Toxic can queuing for their album to be signed by the members.
I guess I'm queuing around 30-40 fans ahead. And no photos actually allowed and they only signed at the cover of album. I have an idea before the showcase begin where I write a question for Sooyoon. I write on a sticky notes given by Michelle that I met at the venue.
When my turn is there, the first member I greet is Moon.
Me: Hello, we met again
Moon: Ohh you are on my team (he refer to the team at Mari mari cultural village)
Me: No. But we met during the meet and greet session. handshake.
Moon: Ahh yeah. *nodding his head while signing my album*
Me: Sorry for the earlier. Really sorry (which is I couldn't have a handshake with them)
Moon: it's okay, I'm sorry too *and smile*
Then, I moved to Sooyoon next and I can see my hand started to sweat and shaking.
Me: hi Sooyoon. You are my favorite member
Sooyoon: Oh really, thank you. *smile and showing his dimple*
I see that on James side the fans still have her album to be signed. I immediately pull over to the middle of album where my question is pasted.
Me: I have question for you *pointing at the sticky notes*
Sooyoon: look at the question, laughing and circled the answer excitedly saying 'yes!'
arr I really want to pinch his dimple at that time, but the staff caught me about the sticky notes then i thanked to him and move to James
Me: Hi James
James: Hi. *signing my album*
Me: James, you eyes gone when you smile *laughing*
James: Really, so you want my eyes to gone away? while smiling again and showing the eye candy
Me: no no I'm kidding haha *we both kidding and i bow to him after he return back my album*
I guess because too many fans at the back I need to be in hurry. My friend wait for me at the back because its time for us to homed.
3. The day of their flight to KL.. I went to the airport which is only few meters from my house around 9 AM. I waited for them and bring along my another gift for Sooyoon and I was wandering around the airport. Then I came back to the place I sat when I arrived which is facing the road, so i can clearly saw them from the inside. I was scrolling my Twitter account then I moved my head to see at the outside and bang! At that time yes, they are here together with another staffs. I immediately stood and went to them but I hesitate because I thought they must be busy with their stuffs.
So I wait for another couple of minutes because preparing my heart to approach them. I went to Sooyoon first (of course because I'm giving out my gift for him) and I feel bad for Moon and James, because I have nothing to give them. At that time, only Sooyoon wearing mask and sunglasses while Moon and James are without and only wore the glasses.
So after successfully hand over my gift, I request for a selca or the group photo with them. At first, their female staffs refused and rejecting my request and said no shooting. Because the members (of Royal Pirates) are not wearing make up. I look at Sooyoon and he smile (because I saw the smile behind the mask) and I thought to myself what's wrong with that and I'm fine with them being natural. I'm kinda upset and silent for awhile. Then I did ask the boys directly can I have a photo with them. Thank god Moon respond to me and said it's okay while nodding his head. Same goes with James. Then the staff also agreed with them since I'm the only fans at that time so it wont take much time for a photo and I give my camera to the staff. Arrh I feel so happy.
But then, I turned back and I was about to ask Sooyoon why he wearing mask. And guess what, I'm not yet asking the question HE TOOK OFF HIS MASK IN FRONT OF ME!!
Waaaaahh!! I feel like my legs gonna fall apart at that time. He took off the mask and I can see his face clearly without makeup and we're just in a few inch where I can hear his breathing. Before he realized my face turn out like a tomato, I quickly facing the staff who get ready to take our picture.
Only one photo, but I'm okay with it. The staff give back my camera and said the photo kinda dark. Hahaha I know because we are opposite the light. And she ask me to filter the photo and edit. haha the staff she is funny. But they still at the outside preparing their luggage. So I took another chance to snap the members while they still in front of me. And of course the first is my bias Sooyoon who still stood few inch from me. And he smile widely while waving at my camera. I feel that I'm gonna explode at that time remembering how close we are. T.T
And I see Moon stand near the door and I immediately call out his name. Oh this boy..He's so bright and look so happy. Maybe can't wait to see their fans in KL..haha
James.. I only got his side because he already on the step went to inside.
While they queuing at check in counter, I was on the phone with my friend. That time, I'm wearing earphone so I can keep watching them from my place (outside the check in counter) but I can see Sooyoon was watching at my direction
Okay you guys can claim I might be dreaming or perasan but I noticed it more than twice. When I saw him again more than 5 seconds, he was watching me (but he wore the mask again and glasses) and it looks creepy for me. lol
This is Sooyoon after few times caught watching at my direction and after finished my on call.
Haiiihh...I've got a fever straight away after sending them away to KL.. Yes a bad fever with sore throat, cough and flu. Haha I guess it because I sent them with a heavy heart. More than a week I need to fight with my voice talking to my family (my voice went crack and its hard for me to talk)
The Royal Pirates fever still on me and I'm officially being their fans because I did signed up for their fancafe, the group I stan crazier after BEAST. (Officially sign up for their fancafe - fanclub)
For me, it was an amazing week for me because went 3 days straight seeing them in person) and plus they are very the first ever group I did a photo group (because stanning kpop artists is hard even to take photo together), strict security everywhere, even sometimes the staffs are strict and won't allows you to close to their artist for a safety.
But I'm glad, I had a beautiful memory with Royal Pirates members. I saw them arrived, I went to their showcase, have a meet greet session, got an autograph from them and got a chance to sending them at the airport bid a very last goodbye. I'm happy they are coming to my states and enjoying themselves here.
James caught in my camera
See?! He took off the mask
and then wore it back. and wave to my camera
OMMA!!! How can I stop loving this bias-wrecker??
Please consider to coming back here in Kota Kinabalu okay. You guys can enjoy a lot of seafood here and next time got a chance to play and sight seeing in many islands in Sabah.
Thank you for coming. Thank you for this opportunity too.
Hope Royal Pirates can achieved more in your career, had something that makes your hard work paid off. Yeah, I'm waiting until the day you guys holding your first trophy and awards.
I'm back again continue to update about the latest Korean rock band Royal Pirates showcase in Malaysia or to be exact their first stop in Kota Kinabalu Sabah.
So, where should I start?
I mean what should I write to tell you guys how lucky I am to met this band?
Because they are really talented, good looking and a English-speaker so I found it amazing and easy for fans and media to communicate with them.
Let's begin. My previous post is about my first encounter with all Royal Pirates member in airport right. So continue with the day of Love Toxic showcase (1st May 2015)
I woke up early in the morning around 8 AM because I want to be there a the venue earlier and I know maybe I can be lucky winner or something. Then me and friend (Bibbiey) agreed to met at bus stop the heading to 1Borneo using another bus..yeaayy We ride on a bus okay.
So once we arrived, around 11:30 AM, I said ohh still early. Let's find the stage and after I saw it i was like woooooaahhh is it for real? The stage look freaking awesome with the drum set, the spave for the guitar and it was already set up. I can't wait.. then we go t have some lunch first because we are HUNGRY!!
The awesome stage for Royal Pirates to perform
Did you guys see the white set of drummer and other at the back?
It was the place for my bias Kim Sooyoon the drummer
Okay continue with the things happened after we finished with our lunch.
We went back to the venue which is the place for Hotlink do a few promotion such as new cell phone with a less price and so on. And one girl with green hair which is the MC for the showcase Denise Chan were also there. I saw her during the night before when Royal Pirates arrived at the KKIA airport. She has been organized few contest for fans and public to participate if they wanted to see Royal Pirates closely.
I was so excited.. I have participate and be among the first contestant join the games just to get a free passes. and actually I've got my passes already before because i'm a winner for the third prize right.
But, my aim to get a meet and greet passes. And around 4-5 PM, the fans are now entering the venue and for the free standing zone me and the hotlink winners got the stand quiet close to stage. I mean the fans at our back is far away a bit from our places. But still the 1st and 2nd winner was lucky enough because their seat is more closer and they got the chances to zoom out the boys.
Well, I am being me. Still unsatisfied and wanted to join more games. And I guess at the moment I step back to the place where the MC still play few games for fans and it for the MEET and GREET passes. I've told myself, this is your chance Mayra!
And here we go, I was in rush to be at the games zone where Denise ask a few question for fans to answer, At that time the question was to name the twitter account of Royal Pirates members James and Moonchul. I noticed that few fans are still struggle and some of them have googled their account. I immediately raise my hands up and she noticed me so I've got the chance to answer the question. And I was correct!! So I got one point for the meet and greet session. Later on she asking for the photo (polaraid), album, the red apps for Hotlink user and once again I'm in rush to get my things done. After that, I managed to answer another question by denise about what i'm going to say to royal pirates on stage later and my answer was 'hey please produced more unique and wonderful song for your fans and what??
YES! I WON THAT MEET AND GREET PASSES. YEAAAAHH!!
Thank you so much Denise. I'm so happy!!
The pictures of us the winner for Meet and Greet session with Royal Pirates before the showcase begin. And we have to wore the red t-shirt given by Hotlink.
Well, after all its my favorite color, RED. ^^
After that, we went back to the venue to enjoy the showcase. I really enjoy myself watching them perform live in front of my eyes. And I took a spot really coincidence with by bias because I stand really straight towards his place of drummer.
And let's view some picture taken by me during the showcase.
I can see my bias directly straight. hahaha <3 p="">
Haiissh... i still missed them so much..
Please consider to coming here again in Sabah okay..
Walllaaaahh~~!! I'm so excited to see them at the airport.
Yeah..that's the place of my first encounter with Royal Pirates members
James, Moonchul and Sooyoon.
Serius. Sampai sekarang masih rasa tak percaya. Sebab ada kisahnya.
Actually, showcase dorang kat Sabah ni which is Love Toxic showcase organized by Hotlink Malaysia. And Hotlink made a contest for fans to participate to win the passes access to the venue later.
Aku dengan rasa teruja nya post la image, post video kat instagram berharap diri ni begitu bertuah untuk menang mana-mana pass..sebab target nak menang experience session (boleh hangout together) dengan member Royal Pirates tu.
So exactly a month before showcase, aku dah mula post gambar tu (based on rules/condition created by Hotlink) dan last minute before contest tamat, baru la aku semangat nak buat video post untuk yang prize no.1 tadi tu (hangout session).
Then lepas da contest tu tamat dalam few days before showcase, winner list dah update..check punya check aku failed menang 1st prize..then rezeki dapat menang pass untuk 3rd prize..okay la kan..means aku dapat pergi showcase tu..hehe
Okay..ni baru nak cerita pasal encounter tu hah..
Royal Pirates punya flight dari Korea to Kuala Lumpur (transit maybe?) dalam jam 6 petang begitu baru flight ke Kota Kinabalu Sabah (arrived in 8:50 PM)
Aku da sibuk plan buat placecard semua, nak jemout dorang kat KKIA sebab memandangkan airport hanya la berapa meter ja dari rumah. (and yes, i am walking to the airport dalam jam 7 dah gerak)
Crazy? i dont care la orang fikir apa, sebab ni kiranya first time kerja gila lepas balik KK sebab sebelum ni pegi kpop event kat KL ja.
Sampai kat airport dalam jam 7.30 PM..makaaaihh lama lagi tunggu flight sampai jam 9 sempat lagi jumpa supervisor masa praktikal di RTM dulu. bila kena tanya tunggu siapa aku jawab tunggu kawan sampai..haha cliche punya jawapan..padahal tunggu retis kpop.
And thankfully about half hour later few fans da sampai nak jemput dorang..even tak ramai..total rasanya dalam 15 orang macam tu ja.. then sampai la jam 9 tu..time to out from arrival hall...at this time I felt totally nervous..
More people gather at the outside..
Orang da makin banyak tunggu kat luar tu sebab ada flight yang baru sampai penumpang-peumpang tu tengah tunggu bas dorag sampai..pelik la dorang kenapa ramai bebudak dengan kamera placecard semua menunggu ni. bila bagitau ada artis kpop datang ahh makcik dgn bebudak dari KL pun sibuk nak join sambut..tu yang buat airport crowded at that time.
My gift for them
A messy place card for them to see..hahaha
And this time I can see them from outside the arrival hall
Finally they out from the hall..I can see them clearly in front of me..to be very honest before this my mind focused on James because he got the eye-smile that captivated me even I kept looking for Sooyoon since the Drawing The Line promotion..But that night, yeaahh it's confirmed.
Sooyoon totally became my forever bias and favorite member.
Thanks to James oppa becase he took the gift that I gave to him..He's totally sooooo tall! Omg!
I need to lifted up my head when I talked to him. And he say 'Kumawo' after took my gift..Melting? Of course..
BUT...After James who's lead and walk at the front I was walking beside my confirmed-bias-wrecker Sooyoon oppa. I called and said hello to him and he respond to it. Then I snap a picture of him and guess what? he give me thumbs up..
He noticed me!!!
Ommaa! Nasib tak pengsan masa tu..Even nampak mata ja..haha
I got James back view there..and this..huuu he wave to me but my picture turned out to be blur..
And I forgot about Moonchul oppa at the back..after Sooyoon oppa because he so tiny (I mean Sooyoon and James a little taller than him) jadi tak perasan dia kat belakang.
So not may pics for their arrival since they walk very faster to their van awaits outside. I try to record their face when they enter the van, but its too dark! Then once again I failed!
And I got only this for Moonchul oppa picture from the arrival hall..
So it was a very good start for me. Met them at the airport, give my small present to them, got to talked to the members, snap a few picture.
I guess that all for now..I will update the picture and the things happen on the day of Love Toxic showcase.
