Food unites people!
We Malaysians really love our food and we will fight tooth and nails to defend our food. So don't try to mess with our food or you will have to face the whole nation!

So, here I was strolling along near MITEC (Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre) and one Anggun Chef standing in front of a portable cafe pique my interest. The beautifully and colourfully designed standee seems to be calling me to have a look at its nicely arranged jars of products and have a taste of its enticingly delicious aroma of brewing coffee. 

Walking towards its counter, I realised that the menu on the top of the counter displays a whole lot of fusion food and drinks. With such an impressive spread of menu, I thought that the food must have been prepared and packed from elsewhere and brought to the cafe where it was displayed and heated upon request. How wrong I was because all food is prepared upon order on its small and open kitchen that uses only electrical appliances and emits a very small amount of fume (as required by MITEC), as shared by Ms Mimie Azura Mohamad, the Managing Director of Anggun Dinamik Holdings Sdn Bhd.

These amazing sauces deserve its own post - soon
I ordered my food and drink (the full menu is available at the end of the blog). While waiting for my order to arrive, I browsed through the nicely arranged jars and realised that those were the homemade sauces that Anggun Fusion produced. 'I will ask more about the sauces later' I told myself as I see more exciting food on the menu (Food always got me excited. Well, who doesn't?)

Then my caramel latte arrived. Not long after, the food that really got me excited arrived - my Rendang Peanut Butter Beef Patty. Yes, you read it right. It is Rendang Peanut Butter, ladies and gentlemen. This is fusion food to the max and at its best! Sinking my teeth into the juicy and thick beef patty, that burger is certainly a new experience to my taste palette. Albeit a bit weirded out when I first read the menu, my curiosity got the best of me and I was so happy that I chose to try the burger. It has all the rendangness of rendang and then the joyful taste of peanut butter comes along and both are deliciously combined in a very tasteful flavour. 

My companions chose to have the Chicken Parmigiana with fries, Asam Pedas Lamb Grill Spaghetti, Chilli Clam Spaghetti, Vegetarian Green Curry and a few more. What was about to be a light lunch suddenly became a feast as Anggun Chef serves a large portion of dishes, albeit it being a portable cafe.

My Review of the Food by Anggun Chef
  • It is Fusion Food so please do not compare it to the traditionally prepared food. 
  • I love the delicious surprise element of the fusion ingredients - certainly brightens up the traditional menu
  • The fusion element adds up the yumminess of the dish without compromising its original taste
  • The patty is THICK - you will be very full after a burger
  • The portion of food here is large
  • The coffee beans are brought specially for Anggun Fusion from France - expect the best coffee and the price is amazingly competitive
  • Wanna try the food by Anggun Chef? Just get it from Grab Food! You can also order it via their hotline and the website.

New Year, New Make Up, New Looks and New Products from Althea Korea

7:30 AM 20 Comments A+ a-

As a part of the Althea Angels, it will always feel like it is my birthday whenever I received an amazing pink colored package from Korea. Because I know it has thousands of happiness inside it!
Althea Angels, Althea Beauty Box, Althea Korea, Beauty by Rawlins, Day Make Up, Makeup Tutorial, Rawlins GLAM
When you received all these amazing gifts, wouldn't you jump for joy too?

And I jumped extra high because I received my bundle of GLAM in the Hanbok special edition box from Althea!
Althea Angels, Althea Beauty Box, Althea Korea, Beauty by Rawlins, Day Make Up, Makeup Tutorial, Rawlins GLAM
So let's get down to business (or in my case, let's get GLAM).

Here are the ALTHEA GLAM Set (I named them after me hahahaha..sorry Althea) that I received in that beautiful Hanbok box.
I actually did my first tryout with the whole ALTHEA GLAM Set way before but in the middle of my video recording, the camera suddenly decided to just shut down. Apparently, it just ran out of its battery juice and I decided just to finish the makeup and do another video sometime later. So, here was my very first attempt with the whole set.
Althea Angels, Althea Beauty Box, Althea Korea, Beauty by Rawlins, Day Make Up, Makeup Tutorial, Rawlins GLAM
What are your thoughts for this very first look?

I would say that this very first attempt was very day-look, to my standard. I used #1, #2 and #4 of the concealers to conceal and highlight some of my facial features. And I used all four shades of the watercolor cream tint (I hope you can differentiate the different shades as I lined my lips into 4 parts here). I used the Gold Light as eyeliner here too. 

A few days after that, I decided to film again. I decided to go deeper and indulge more for my second look. I made sure that I have fully charged my camera so that I could capture the right moment and shared it as a tutorial (am I eligible to do a makeup tutorial, though? Hahaha - please be kind ok)

This time around, I tried to DIY my own turban but it seems I failed, miserably too. Anyone know where I can buy a ready-to-wear turban, the one where I just put it on and become as elegant as Yuna? If you know where I can buy such turban, do let me know.

And as it was the night of 14 February 2019, I decided to put on some love on my face too.

I have uploaded the video into my YouTube Channel here, so please kindly subscribe and comment on my look. I have also uploaded the video into my Instagram, so, choose whichever channel you wanna view and kindly subscribe and comment ok. 

I know now that I need to learn more to draw my eyebrows but eyebrows are supposed to be sisters and not twins right?

My Thoughts On Althea Make Up Box (aka ALTHEA GLAM SET)

  • The watercolor tints are really moist and the color stays. Apply the lippie gently (not to generous) as a little goes a long way. Oh. I am more into vampy colors, so please come up with more vampy shades soon please!
  • The glitters are the bomb! The same as the tint, a little goes a long way. For a day look, apply a little only. When you are painting the town red, apply generously and you will be noticed in da' club!
  • Apply the soft gel in small amounts too and not on the whole face. 
  • I HEARTS the concealers - all of them. Blend marvellously, conceal wondrously! Good job! And now, Althea magicians, you need to concoct more shades ok.
  • The eye palette is the only eye palette a girl (or a boy/ man) would ever need. It has pigment, colour power and also glitter in one palette. A worthy investment. 
Where did I get all these amazingly beautiful and ringgit-worthy makeups?
Just head on to Althea Korea!

Shopee Super Brand Day - The Day When House Cleaning Pays Off

2:41 PM 13 Comments A+ a-

Shopee Malaysia, Shopee Super Brand Day, House Cleaning Necessities, Barang Murah di Shopee, Rawlins Shops, Rawlins GLAMIs there anyone here who loves cleaning their house/ room?

I am so not one of those people. Haha.
I always feel that cleaning the house/ room is a chore that I could always do last, or never.
And I will only clean my house (especially the toilet) when I know that friends or family members (especially my dad) is coming over!

That's bad right?

But as age catches on, I NEED to clean the house because a speck of dirt will irritate me tremendously and I learnt eventually, deteriorate my health too. Moreover, with a sudden online and worldwide craze of cleaning and decluttering one's house (or mess in my case), I need to be on the same bandwagon like the rest of the world, right? Nobody wants to be the last one to know. 

Experts have shared across their research and findings that decluttering one’s home has its significance. However, it is also important that one keeps the house clean not only by organising and discarding items that do not spark joy but also the floors, windows, bathrooms, kitchen and basically every surface, nook and cranny of the house. 

When you are raising children, you learn fast and at times, the hard way, that your house has to be sparkling clean and hygienic too! That's why maid services are skyrocketing nowadays - working parents need an assistant in keeping their home clean and the kids safe.

And yes, keeping the home clean is no easy nor a cheap chore!
But fret not, beautiful-and-healthy-home-lovers out there.

'Tinder for Jobs' Offers 1 Million Job Opportunities

7:30 AM 19 Comments A+ a-

“Study hard. Get a degree. Find a good job. Live happily ever after.”

Sound familiar?

Every year, over 200,000 students graduate from institutions of higher learning. Shockingly, 1 out of 5 graduates remains unemployed, with the majority being Degree holders. These graduates make up 35% of those who are unemployed.

Here’s the hard truth — being a university graduate no longer guarantees you a job.

As the number of graduates continues to climb each year, students are facing tough competition amidst a shaky economy.
The statement above is taken from EduAdvisor.
Does it ring some bells?

Fret no more, parents and graduates alike. SlingApp has got you covered.

The fastest growing job-seeking app in Malaysia, SlingApp targets  more than one million  job matches across  10  industries for young job seekers between the age of 18-30  years old with its recent partnership with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation, MDEC’s eRezeki, a national programme to help lower-income households to improve their livelihood by enabling them to participate in income opportunities offered via digital means.

Known as the ‘Tinder for jobs’SlingApp helps young job seekers to seek non-executive jobs either for full-time, part-time employment or internship placements easily. Users can now simply swipe left, right and get a ‘date’ with their potential employers from various industries such as the startup and tech sector, food and beverage, customer service, beauty and healthcare, retail, finance and so on via the app.

Co-Founder of SlingApp, Teh Tian Ji (郑天吉) said, “After our official appointment as a partner for the eRezeki progamme, a government initiative under the MDEC on 15 November 2018, we are launching various campaigns to reach out to the B40 group nationwide to encourage them to sign up and get job matches. We aim that by the end of 2019, there will be more than 1 million successful job matches through this initiative. This will ultimately create more digital income opportunities while filling up the existing void in various industries.”

Since its launch in 2017, SlingApp has successfully matched 40,000 job seekers to more than 2,000 companies including major global brands such as DiGi Communications, AEON, Mary Kay, Sushi King, Tony Roma’s and Public Mutual. These subscribing employers have posted more than 5,000 jobs. Interestingly, youngsters between the age of 21 and 26 contribute 58% of the growing database on SlingApp.

The first screening of the hiring process has been made easier since the introduction of its unique Auto-Interviu (AI) feature that helps employers to get more information by sending five (5) specially tailored questions to the applicants upon matching. More than 72% of applicants went through the AI process which cuts the usual interview time by more than 70% compared to the traditional recruitment approach.

According to Lucas Wong (黄鼎维), the co-founder of SlingApp, another unique feature is the location-based job searching set within 30km radius for travelling convenience.
“This location-based feature is very useful for not only job seekers but also students as our app also posts on internship placements available at various organizations. Imagine, skipping the long-winded process of sending letters and waiting for a response that may take weeks to something as simple as applying and getting a match located near your home or universities under one minute.”
In the coming months, SlingApp targets to include job opportunities outside Klang Valley, including Penang and Johor. The Malaysian based startup is also keen to expand within the countries in the Southeast Asia region such as Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Kutipan Zakat, Pembahagian Zakat, Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan, PPZ, Pusat Pungutan Zakat, Aktiviti PPZ 2019, Rawlins GLAM,
Last Monday, I attended a press conference held by Pusat Pungutan Zakat (PPZ) at the Everly Hotel, Putrajaya.

As one of the past recipients of zakat (the asnaf), I always try my best to attend the events by PPZ-MAIWP - tempat jatuh lagikan dikenang, inikan pula tempat bermain. So, yeah. I would like to think that my sharing of PPZ's initiatives as a giving back to PPZ and the masses of friends out there.

Here are some my past postings, the evolvement of PPZ-MAIWP and of them giving back to the community in their outreach programme.
Alhamdulilah. In my own simple way of outreach, I managed to remind some of my friends of their duty - and they did their parts too.

After the press conference, I am so happy that the ever helpful and giving Malaysians certainly did their parts too and it reflects in the total amount of 2018 zakat collection and the total number of people paying zakat.
Kutipan Zakat, Pembahagian Zakat, Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan, PPZ, Pusat Pungutan Zakat, Aktiviti PPZ 2019, Rawlins GLAM,

Green Book [Movie Review]

When I watched the trailer of the movie, I was very interested in viewing it. Then the Director of the office tells the office that she wants the whole office to view it together as a group training.
Green Book, Movie Review by Rawlins, Comedy, Biography, Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

The movie is set in 1962 and Frank 'Tony Lip' Vallelonga is searching for a new job when the club he works at is closed for renovations. He gets invited for an interview as a driver for Dr Don Shirley. Little that he knows that Dr Don Shirleyis a black pianist.
Green Book, Movie Review by Rawlins, Comedy, Biography, Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini
Tony, being the racist that he is, at first was a bit reluctant to be Dr Shirley's driver and demands higher pay, just so that Dr Shirley will not employ him. After Dr Shirley calls Dolores (Tony's wife) and asks her permission to hire her husband for the next 8 weeks to be his driver for the pay that Tony requested, Tony agrees to be the driver.

Dr Shirley's record label gives Tony a copy of the Green Book, a guide for black travellers to find motels, restaurants and filling stations that would serve people of color. Tony, being the hard-headed person that he is, insists of not wearing a uniform like any other driver. 

Along the way, there were a lot of quarrels and misunderstandings between them - just because of their clashing attitudes and skills. Dr Shirley is a man of fine manners and courtesy whereas Tony grows on the street and only handles matter the street-style way. But in the end, Tony will always listen to Dr Shirley's advise, just because he is 'the boss'. 
Green Book, Movie Review by Rawlins, Comedy, Biography, Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini
Green Book, Movie Review by Rawlins, Comedy, Biography, Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini
Also along the way, Tony learns to appreciate Dr Shirley's talent and becomes less racist towards the people of color when he sees the discrimination by the people, especially when he is not performing. After Dr Shirley was assaulted by a group of white men in a bar, Tony instructs Dr Shirley not to go out without him for the rest of the tour.

Throughout the tour, they both learn and grow from each other. Dr Shirley helps Tony to write romantic letters to his wife whereas Tony teaches Dr Shirley how to enjoy life.  
Green Book, Movie Review by Rawlins, Comedy, Biography, Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini
Will this friendship last or is it just professional courtesy?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.9/ 5.0 I love the movie so much. It tells me about respect, love and the sacrifice in acquiring love and respect too. I love how light yet very informative and engaging the movie was. It will bring you through a journey of extreme hate and discrimination that the colored people have to endure during the era. And for Dr Shirley to be a black gay man, made it all even more difficult. 
   
Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 Everybody played their part marvellously. 

Will I watch it again: I will.

Will Alita be able to fully understand her purpose of 'life'?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.3/ 5.0. I kinda love the whole plot of the amnesia-cyborg-saving-the-world plot. But there are some kind of a disengage relations in betweens (I think this was done purposelly so that there will be sequels). A fun, scientific and lots of beautifully choreographed actions in this one. A lot of storylines for a two-hour movie. 

Cast: 4.0/ 5.0 Everyone delivers. Some more than other and some much less - at some points I even asked my friend 'is she gonna have some lines to deliver at all, or is she just gonna stand there with no words at all?'.

Will I watch it again: I will, in my room.
