Beauty Tips - My new favourite skincare Cosini Relaxing Series

After getting back from my diving trip, this has become my favourite skincare products which I have to share with you guys. 
Cosini Relaxing series that helps my skin to look dewy and stay hydrated at the same time. I often worried about trying new products because of my sensitive skin, however this series doesn't have a problem on my skin. Its special ingredients of Usnea Barbara extract and Portuluca Oleracea provides soothing effect and helps our skin to restore its balance. 

Another thing I love about Cosini Relaxing series is their minimal steps in my skincare routine. Firstly of course is your cleansing, then you follow up with Cosini Relaxing Facial Mist that acts like a toner. Just spray evenly over your entire faee for day and night and pat it gently. You can even apply it after your foundation or sunblock to moisturise your skin.

Secondly apply Cosini Relaxing Facial Serum as moisturiser during daytime. If you wish to have a better result, you may add on another step by applying their facial masque before the serum. It really hydrates my skin well as I have been using it right after my dive. It soothed my skin from the sunburnt.

This is my skin a day after I came back from my diving trip. I'm glad my friend introduced me Cosini so that I can always keep my skin at its best.

No more excuses no complete you skincare routine by using Cosini Relaxing series as there are only 2 steps.
Let's be beautiful together.

First Diving Trip to Tioman

Last year I decided to pick up scuba diving as a hobby. I went to numbers of open water classes at Selantis Dive Center, 1 Utama and finally went on a road trip to Tioman to get my license. Before the trip, I was worried because I am not very good at swimming and I was afraid what would it be like under the sea. 
The thing is after this trip I am so happy I did it. After my first foray into the underwater world, I want to see more, I want to explore more underwater adventure. 

I managed to some fishes (gotta start remember their names), bluespotted stingray, turtles and black tip shark. Seeing all the beautiful sea creatures underwater, makes me want to master my diving skill and start learning how to do underwater photography in future. Maybe that time I will be able to show you guys some visuals or videos. 

Thanks to this man who first inspired me to pick up this fun adventurous sports. 

Apart from diving, we were brought to this hidden gem waterfall that is about 5 minutes walk from Paya beach. What's better to do that taking a cold dip while chit chatting our evening away. 

One off the bucket list. Now let's plan another diving trip.

Ipoh Roadtrip

So my mom was down to KL to visit me this month and since she has never been to Ipoh neither do I, we decided to travel north to visit this food heaven where everybody else have already been. 

Our first stop, of course was for Ipoh's bean sprout chicken rice. My friend brought us to one of the famous ones, Ong Kee Restaurant. Sadly not exceptional taste. Perhaps I can try the one boyfriend recommended (Cowan Street) next time. 

Egg caramel custard from Thean Chun can never be missed. When I posted this picture on my Instagram, people started to tell me about their incomparable kai see hor fun aka chicken kuey teow soup. Now I have more reasons to come to Ipoh again. 

If you like hawker food, you should try Hoong Thoo Restaurant. I love their fish paste wat tan hor and fried wanton. If you love cempedak, they do have the best cempedak cake (which I didn't take any picture of it) I ever taste. 

Because everyone is telling me I shouldn't miss Tuck Kee Restaurant when it comes to noodles, so we decided to give it a try. We ordered Hokkien mee on the menu, which we didn't know it was meant for the thin yellow noodles. The one we wanted was actually Hokkien fried dai loke mee. Ended up we didn't have a very satisfying second round as we thought. However the dish that goes with the noodles (baby octopus with soy sauce) was pretty good. 

What better way to kick start our second day foodie tour than with a cup of original old town white coffee at Sin Yoon Loong Kopitam. They was in fact the first coffee shop in old town that has introduced white coffee to the Ipoh community. Dan chi (half boiled eggs on toast), peanut butter toast and a cup of white coffee make a great ensemble for a hearty, traditional breakfast in old town. 

Next stop for some tau fu fah @ Funny Mountain. I cannot believe they have a drive-through service where you can have your tau fu fah inside your car while avoiding the scorching hot weather. We also bought some kaya puffs from Sin Eng Heong which is a few stores away. 

Highly recommended by my boyfriend, we can't wait to try their Hakka offerings at Chong Chew Kedai Kopi. Since we were still very full from the breakfast and dessert, we just ordered the Hakka lei cha (pounded tea rice). It was in fact my first time trying lei cha and it really love the taste. Of course, how can we not order its traditional Hakka yong tau foo before we left. 

Apart from food, it was a great stay at Haven Resort Ipoh. I love their facilities and green scenery surrounded the whole resort.

What a wonderful staycation with my family. Definitely coming back for more food hunting.

Melbourne Love - Part 3

I am missing this cold weather now. 

It was last year when I visited this beautiful city where you can just drive an hour or two to arrive at Brighton, Melbourne's favourite seaside destination. Being touristy, we took a stroll at the most famous spot on Brighton's coastline, Dendy Street Beach where the colourful bathing boxes lined along the the stretch of coast.

While thinking whether we should drive to the Great Ocean Road, we found ourselves craving some fish and chips and we were quickly en-route to Cerberus Beach House. According to WL's friend, it's Melbourne's most iconic spot to sit and feast on fish and chips while enjoy the picturesque bayside view. 

So we ditched the long hour road trip plan and went St Kilda instead. There are nothing much to explore here, so we ended up chilling at Dr. Jekyll. Good coffee though. 

There was no time for empty stomach when we were in Melbourne. Our friend brought us to Longrain, one of the best modern Thai restaurants in Melbourne. Although the restaurant was very busy,  the table service was excellent. Needless to mention their food, my favourites are their betel leaf tapas, silken toufu, and caramelised pork hock is absolutely to die for. 

Happy kid he is when it comes to his favourite session. One of the original rooftops bar, the Rooftop Bar on the top floor of Curtain House is the place to go for drinks with friends and settle in for a movie on the deck chairs and rugs. 

Travel post always make me want to get away from this city life. 
Making my travel destinations this year, so where do you suggest?
