ORGGA Is Being Nice To My Skin

7:30 AM 17 Comments A+ a-

ORGGA Is Being Nice To My Skin |  My skin has always been acting up for my entire life. Most of the times we were not on speaking term but since it is the only that I will have for my entire life, I have to take very good care of it. 

My skin is the sensitive kind and its a combination, which makes most situation worse, every time! I learned the hard way that my sensitive skin is very sensitive and I have to be mindful of what I put on it. So, I will always be on the lookout for the skincare items that are natural, organic, safe, effective, cruelty-free and the most important thing is, will not be breaking my bank account (which is not that hard to break into - it breaks every time there is a sale going on online) hahaha.

When I read about ORGGA, a Malaysian made skincare that ticks all the points that I mentioned above, I was so intrigued about finding out if it will be good to me and my skin. After consulting with the  ORGGA skincare expert, she suggested these items for me and my super sensitive and combination skin.
  • Bacca Bliss 3 in 1 Daily Cleansing Powder 
  • Rose Otto Nourishing Face Mist
  • Lindo Luxe Beauty Oil
  • Rose Quartz Face Roller (this was recommended to assist in better skincare)
I was so eager to try ORGGA out and see what my skin thinks about it. 
Owh. Like any other skincare regime, there are steps to follow to use the ORGGA set. So, here goes the routine.

STEP 1: Cleanse Using Bacca Bliss 3 in 1 Daily Cleansing Powder
ORGGA, ORGGA Malaysia, The Butterfly Project Malaysia, Beauty by Rawlins, Skincare, Natural, Organic, Cruelty Free, Local Product,
The cleansing powder is very unique. It is in the powder form and could be used as a mask too.  The powder cleanses and exfoliates dead cells without drying the skin. As it uses organic and natural products (clay, cereals, flowers and fruit extracts), it also cares for the skin at the same time. 

Direction to use: Remove makeup. Rinse face. Pour around 1 tsp of the powder, add drops of water and make a smooth paste. Gently massage in circular motions. Rinse and pat. If you wanna use it as a mask, prepare as above and leave for 2-5 minutes. 

I use it in the evenings, just to pamper my skin. And so far, it seems like they are in agreement that the cleanser is good for my skin.

STEP 2: Nourishing & Hydrating Face Mist/ Toner using Rose Otto Nourishing Face Mist
ORGGA, ORGGA Malaysia, The Butterfly Project Malaysia, Beauty by Rawlins, Skincare, Natural, Organic, Cruelty Free, Local Product,
It is advised to spray the face mist right after cleansing. The great combination of hydrosol, fruit extracts, , rich essential oils, vegetable glycerin and aloe vera, the mist will refresh, moisturize and care for the skin, whilst providing it with nutrition and anti-oxide. 

Direction to use: Shake the spray before use. Spray the mist lightly over the face and neck. Gently pat face and neck. 

STEP 3: Treat and Moisturize with Lindo Luxe Beauty Oil
ORGGA, ORGGA Malaysia, The Butterfly Project Malaysia, Beauty by Rawlins, Skincare, Natural, Organic, Cruelty Free, Local Product,
Use the oil while the face is still damp after the face mist. There are actually three types of luxe beauty oils by ORGGA. The other two are Oliva (for dry, mature and pre-mature skin) and Libra (for normal and combination skin).  Lindo is for the ones with oily and acne-prone skin, just like mine. Most of the active ingredients are sourced from the UK, US, Europe, Middle East and China in order to maintain the quality. The oil is formulated with 10 types of botanical oils and 6 selected and high-quality essential oils. The oil is also rich in mineral and nutrition. 

Direction to use: For best results, use right after using the mist, while the face is still damp. Gently massage 2-3 drops of oil.

Psst. The oil is also good as a makeup primer.

STEP 4: Rose Quartz Face Roller
ORGGA, ORGGA Malaysia, The Butterfly Project Malaysia, Beauty by Rawlins, Skincare, Natural, Organic, Cruelty Free, Local Product,
For an extra luxurious treat, I was advised to use the Rose Quartz Face Roller to detoxify and rejuvenate the skin. 

Here are some of the benefits of using the gemstone face roller.
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Helps reducing pores
  • Increases skin elasticity and oxygen flow in the blood to the face area
  • Clears toxins and reduces inflammation
  • Helps to better absorption of skincare products

So, here is a video of me using the whole products for your reference. I have been using ORGGA for the last month and I know for a fact that my skin is thanking me now for taking good care of it.

It's super easy and the best thing is, your skin will be loving you back after using them.

The Butterfly Project Malaysia's Christmas Party Gets Prettier with Dolly Wink

7:30 AM 19 Comments A+ a-

The Butterfly Project Malaysia's Christmas Party Gets Prettier with Dolly Wink | When Mamasan, Tammy Lim announced that there will be a Christmas Party coming our way and it's a collaboration with a huge name in Japan's Beauty scene, I was already planning what to wear as we all know that Japanese fashion scene is grand and pretty and individualistic. 

Then she announced the theme 'Japanese Kawaii Christmas'. My creative wheel stopped at its track - where would I get such an outfit?

Kawaii and Christmassy, aren't I?
She added on 'Every Butterfly should come with no eye makeup as Dolly Wink, the collaborator wants to have an eye makeup contest using its latest falsies - Easy Lash.'

What? Me? Going out without the eye makeup? Never been heard off!

As the day nears, I finally decided to just wear whatever I have in my closet and bought other complementary fashion items (I only spent less than  RM100 for the additional items) to complete my look for 'Japanese Kawaii Christmas'.

Over the years of my making up, I have always been struggling to set my falsies. More often than not my falsies will not be symmetrical and I will have to redo the falsies. After putting on and off for quite some time, some follicles might come off and I will always throw away the falsies after one use. And I dreaded to wear them for a long time. They are heavy. 
My girlfriends have said the same thing too about putting on falsies - it takes a lot of time to set it right, they don't look natural, the lifespan is very short and some are heavy. Not wanting to waste time, most of them have opted to have lash extensions instead. Albeit that it also needs proper handling and very fragile too, at least they will save a few minutes in the morning for not having to set up the falsies.
So, the thought of having to apply falsies in front of others, moreover having a contest on it, made me cringed. I know for a fact that I will be taking forever to put them on, with various weird facial contortions. Those who saw my face while putting on the falsies will be having nightmares for quite some time, that I can be sure of.

Some of Dolly Wink's items for us to play around with

Posing with someone else's goodie bag items hahaha
The day comes. Arriving at 163 Mont Kiara, after putting on the bright purple anime wig (I bought it online for RM20), I made my way to Kakiyuki. After jotting my attendance down and Pinkunosakura handed me my goodie bag, I made my way to the table and booked a table (so kiasu hahaha). Spotting some Dolly Wink items on the table, I quickly took some pictures of it, without even realizing that those were someone else's and I have all of them inside my goodie bag. I guessed I was feeling a bit anxious about my over-the-top appearance (WHAT? RAWLINS? FEELING ANXIOUS ABOUT APPEARANCE? Yes. I am a human too) 

As I was among the first few who arrives early, I took the chance to take some pictures around Kakiyuki and its spread of yummy desserts. There I met some old friends and new Butterflies (and suddenly I feel so old, because they were so young). Haha.

The dessert spread was so yummy - the daifuku, rolls, warabomochi and pudding were so pleasing to the eyes. And they were all equally tasty too. They were all so soft, jiggly and yummy and now I know where to bring my J-crazy friends who eat all things Japan. 

Then the event starts with the one and only emcee of the year, Leonard Dee greeted everyone, followed by Mamasan. Here are some of the points of Mamasan's welcome speech.
  • The Christmas Party is a collaboration between Dolly Wink (Kojihonpo Malaysia) and the Butterfly Project Malaysia.
  • The event is also a Launch Party for Easy Lash by Dolly Wink - marking a comeback for falsies into the beauty scene- bigger, better and more comfortable.
  • Easy Lash introduces 16 new designs of falsies for modern people and there is one for every occasion.
  • Befitting its name, Easy Lash is easy to apply, only 10 seconds to be perfectly fitted to one's eyes.

After a sweet and short introduction, the Easy Lash Contest began. We were told to choose among the four falsies that we have received in the goodie bag. Dolly Wink provided two sets of eye shadows and a ring light mirror for us to use. We were told to only put a falsie and eye makeup on one eye before being evaluated by the plainclothed judges (plainclothed? I think too much watching The Blacklist make me think and write like the spy series too)

Upon opening the pack of Easy Lash #16, I was pleasantly surprised that there are signs for Left and Right falsie, together with a tube of falsie glue inside it. I will not be putting the falsie on the wrong side anymore with the signs so clearly visible on the pack.

From no eye makeup to completed look with Easy Lash by Dolly Wink
And I realized that the falsies are slightly shorter, not the normal length of falsies. Of which I often have to cut them a bit, as my eyes are not as wide. And man, it was so easy and fast to have them on. A mere 10 seconds was all I needed to put them on.
  1. Apply glue on the base of the falsies
  2. Tilt head a bit and with your eyes half-closed, put the base of falsies on the root of own lashes.
  3. As the Easy Lash are a tad shorter than the normal ones, I chose to put mine from the middle towards the end of the lash line.
  4. I am done. 
I was amazed at how fast I was at fixing the falsies. And the best was, I did not do all those weird faces and angles just to have them on. And no more putting on, putting off then putting on again (X 1000 times) just to make sure that the falsies sit right and symmetrical.

This minty goodness is DELICIOUS!
While waiting for the judges to go round and look at our eyes, we were treated to the kakigori - any flavor of our choosing. As it was huge, we were advised to share a kakigori with another Butterfly. And the one that I shared with Ayue Jean was marvelous! She was smart to pick the one from the Christmas specials. This delicious minty shaved ice is called Chocolate Mint kakigori, a luscious mixture of Belgian chocolate and mint with brownies, crushed hazelnut and topped with maple epsume and a chocolate star cookie. More Christmas menu here [Kakiyuki]

The emcee then announced for everyone to complete the makeup. As I am always for fun makeup and will not settle for ordinary, I just overdid my eyeliner with the soft and pointy eyeliner of Dolly Wink. The liner just ran smoothly and I would say, the cleanest line that I have ever created for my eyes.

Then Mamasan announced the winner of the best eye makeup and I was among the five that received RM100 voucher to shop for makeup items on 4allbeauty platform. Oh yeah. I will be shopping for my Christmas presents on 4allbeauty platform, y'all.

Thanks Mamasan
And I scored a double win when was also announced as one of the three best-dressed Butterflies. Thanks Mamasan for sponsoring the sock full of amazing gifts. Coincidently, us three were all color red coordinated. Congrats to all the winners of both eye makeup and best-dressed!

Thanks so much to the Butterfly Project Malaysia  and Dolly Wink (Kojihonpo Malaysia) for organizing such a grand Christmas Party that certainly has set a high standard for the other parties to follow. Albeit we only stayed for 2 hours, I truly enjoyed myself, meeting and making friends and trying out the Easy Lash.

The lash is super comfy and light that I almost forgot to take them off when I arrived home. I only realised that I still have them on when I was about to remove my makeup.
Eh. Why are my lashes thicker and longer?
Haha. I haven't taken off the Easy Lash. I took them off and carefully set them both back on their own specific slot in the box.

Easy!

Come and enjoy a video of the event - just sharing with y'all what festive and merriment that we Butterflies always have during our gatherings.

Do checkout the page's album to look at more pictures.



Dolly Wink, a Japanese cosmetic brand under the label @kojihonpomy introduces 4 new lash designs and each design carries 4 extra ones for different occasions.

Tips for Hiring a PA System Rental in Selangor

7:41 AM 18 Comments A+ a-

Tips for Hiring a PA System Rental in Selangor | We are reaching the end of the year.There will be parties and weddings to attend as Malaysians love to have their loved ones over, especially during the holidays.

I know for a fact that hosting an event is a hustle, and most of the time, the PA system plays such an important role in the success of an event. You don't want to be shouting at the top of your lung throughout the event, just to get the event in order. 

So, just to make everyone's life much easier (and less annoying to hear one's screaming), we compiled the top tips for hiring a PA system rental in Selangor. 
Hiring PA System in Selangor, Colorz Event, Good PA System in Selangor, Rawlins Tech, Weddings, Parties, Event Equipment, Rawlins GLAM
Hiring a PA system is like renting a car. Why do I say that? A car and PA system have something in common like you will look at the specification of the system, the quality of the sound, the outlook of the appearance, whether it is convenient and etc.  You get the picture of what I’m trying to describe. And it is a daunting task for an everyday person to just rent a PA system which obviously not an expert in this field. So, we took up the trouble to simplify what you should know and what to look for when the next time you rent a PA system. 

Tip 1: Choosing the venue
Knowing where your event is held, whether outdoor or indoor, is very crucial to the contribution of a PA system. As sound wave travels through space, small and close space or large and wide space requires a different PA system. So, get your venue details. And also get the number of guests in the venue too. You might rent a small closed venue packed with guests, you probably need a different PA system than the conventional one for such a special case. 

Tip 2: Have buffer for set up time
You need to arrange the PA system crew to come to set up at the preferred location you selected. Sometimes it can take 30 mins up to hours to set up. Yup. Perfection takes time. They need to set up where speakers are to be and pulling cable around the venue is a tough job to ensure you have good sound in the whole venue.  Always refer back to the rental company

Tip 3: Engage an expert sound guy
When renting a PA system, you want to find a package that includes a sound engineer. They are the experts in sound and they will make sure the sound is of top quality and no annoying sound when the audio on play. They can even make your audio sound better on any occasion. So trust the professionals, don’t be cheap going without one. 

Tip 4: Don’t be shy to ask questions
You don’t have to know everything. Ask away. Find out how much equipment in the packages like the number of microphones, speakers, amplifiers and you also want to get some reference to check the company’s performance and reliability. 

So these are a few things you should always keep in mind while hiring a PA system. Let me give you one more tip, why not hire Colorz Event to do those for you?

They provide PA and sound system rental in Selangor and they include setup and dismantling too. All basic equipment you need in a PA system is provided in a package. If you want to go for fancy and grand and include special sound and rent event lighting equipment, I’m sure they will hook you up with some attractive packages too. 

They also provide top-notch service by providing you a sound engineer and a setup crew. Call them today for a FREE venue consultation and a FREE quote.

Rib Rib Holiday at Tony Roma's

7:52 AM 14 Comments A+ a-

Rib Rib Holiday at Tony Roma's | Everywhere you go now, you'll hear popular Christmas songs in the air - may it be by some popular singers or the old nostalgic ones.
Deck the hall with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la la la la la
'Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la la la la la
Fill the meadcup, drain the barrel
Fa la la la la la la la la
Troul the ancient Christmas carol
Fa la la la la la la la la

When these melodic songs are playing in the air, you'll know for sure that the holiday season has finally arrived. And the best thing to enjoy the holiday season is to share some quality time with your loved ones and for us, Malaysians, spend time with our loved ones over scrumptious dishes. At least, that's how my close friends and I love to spend our time together as everybody is always away/ busy with our own everyday agenda.

Last week, we met up for a mini gathering and unanimously decided to settle for Tony Roma's as the service and its dishes has never disappointed us.  Lo and behold! We were lucky as Tony Roma's has just launched its holiday-themed cuisines, lovingly called Tony Roma's Rib Rib Holiday.

And us being appreciative of the latest offerings (it is safe to say that everyone just loves eating, no need to make excuses to try anything) we ordered almost everything that was available from the holiday menu. The menu fits our group just nicely as it was created for a group of people to mix and enjoy the offerings together and be jolly.

We ordered and gulped everything in record time as everything was so delicious and finger-lickin' good! It was so delicious that all of us put our cutleries aside and manhandled everything bare-handed! 

True Malaysians here, albeit being in the steakhouse and grill leader of Malaysia! Here, have a look at what we had, just be sure not to salivate, much!

These are some of the dishes that are available on the menu. We also ordered the Holiday Drinks that were both creamy, tropical and very rejuvenating and relaxing at the same time, such as Peach Orange Colada, Pina Strawberry Swirl, Pina Mango Swirl and Pina Colada. Mind you that Peach Orange Colada is available for a limited time only, so you better hurry.

In fact, you might as well book your Christmas Eve's dinner here as the menu is only available from 1 November 2019 until 1 January 2020 - it's here just for the holiday! 

Enjoy your holiday peeps. Be full, be merry and be safe!

Last Christmas [Movie Review]

8:25 AM 16 Comments A+ a-

Last Christmas [Movie Review] | Aside from an avid scary moviegoer, I am also a sucker for a rom-com. And when a fellow Ibanese, a Sarawakian and a Malaysia stars in a Hollywood rom-com, it will be a crime not to watch it.
Movie Review by Rawlins, Last Christmas, Henry Golding, Emilia Clarke, Romantic Comedy, Christmas Comedy, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh, Romantic, Comedy
And the list of the cast certainly had me intrigued enough not to watch it.

Kate was destined for fame, ever since she was the lead choir back in Yugoslavia. And when they have to move to the US, it seems her life also turns for the worst. She couldn't keep a steady job (she keeps on applying for an acting gig but always comes up short. Her love life is just like turning through the page of a book, never a steady boyfriend, just a one-night stand and it seems that she keeps on disappointing her friends if she is not trying to burn their houses down whenever she is 'staying over' at their places as she doesn't own a place of her own and she refuses to go back to his parents'.

Her only stabile ground was working at a Christmas shop owned by Santa, a Chinese lady with a hard-to-pronounce name so she just named her Santa.

She spots an out-of-place guy outside of the store one day and decides to join him outside the store, looking up at a bird. From then on, it seems like she couldn't get the guy out of her way. He will be there to cheer her on.

At times, he will be missing for days - leaving her missing him with his corny psychology talk. Even though she thinks that he is a goody-two-shoes, at times, she needs him to ground her and let her make the right decision - her auditions, her parents and her family. 

But, where is their relationship heading?
And why is he keeps on disappearing without a trace?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.0/ 5.0 Admittedly, I kinda know where the story was going in the middle of the movie. There were hints of what's coming. But I stayed on waiting for the confirmation of my suspicion. Literally, this movie is very straight-forward and an open-end kinda movie. It's sweet and simple, with a few touches of humor thrown in between. But yes, the ending did make me cry. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 Blimey! I will be called biased just because Henry Golding is in the movie. But Emma and Emilia's act was spot on as migrants. Michelle Yeoh excels as a Chinese migrant here, with her love towards business and all. Henry Golding - he is a star in the making - no doubt. 

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again with the right companion. 
The pictures are taken from IMDb and other sources on the Internet. Thank you.
