Live Well. Laugh Often. Love Much.

Mirror mirror, on the wall.

The trend nowadays is to DIY almost everything in the house, don’t you agree?

I mean, who wouldn’t want to transform or freshen up that space without having to spend over the budget?

So when I went to DECORETTE recently,  I was pleasantly surprised to see their latest addition!

THE MIRROR CLOCK DECALS & POPOUT BUTTERFLIES CAUGHT MY ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.

I thought the mirror clock would be perfect for my dining room area. And $35 only for a something as unique looking as this?

The best part of it all is, it is sooooooooo easy to use and fix! Instructions are clearly provided, as you can see. Simply stick onto the wall and you have your very own mirror clock. Yes my dear, we are talking about a real functional clock here.

 So we got it fixed, and here is how it looks like! dec4

Can you see the mirror clock reflecting the light at my dining area and the sofa at my living room area?

COOL RIGHHHHHHHT?!!! I KNOW. 

And because it was so easy  and quick to fix, we even had time to pose and reflect, pun intended.

You simple need to bend the wings a bit and peel off the adhesive backing before pressing each butterfly firmly to your wall or glass surface to stick. Arrange however you like and you can even mix colours to add more life to the area!

Sponsored Post: Monsters University

Just the other day, we were invited for the exclusive movie screening of Monsters University. MU-11 I admit, initially I was like not really looking forward to it. I thought it would be a pretty boring show. Tatek was expecting to fall asleep. Mysha was a bit scared to watch because she thought it was really going to be a scary movie about horrible monsters and all. She has this habit of covering both ears each time she watches something scary or loud.

BUT BOY WERE WE SO SO WRONG!

 

Monsters University kept all of us laughing out loud throughout! Our eyes did not even blink, I think.

Truth be told, I have never seen my girls laugh so much during a movie. Myreen would normally get fidgetive after a while, and tell me she wants to go home. But for Monsters University, she sat still with eyes glued to the screen. Myreen did not cover her ears that much. Sharleez’s mouth was wide open. They pretty much ignored me. In fact, I could see them giggling away every now and then. Sharleez kept whispering to me, “This is the funniest movie ever!” The silly sight gags in the show kept my girls entertained all the way.

In short, there was not even a single boring scene. Poor Tatek did not get to sleep as planned because he too was busy laughing.

After the show, the girls started bugging me with this.

“MUMMY, WHEN WILL THE VCD BE OUT? MUST GET OKAY?”

Looks like they are going to keep asking me the same question for the next one month or so. If I really cannot take it, I will just bring them to the movies to watch Monsters University once again! With the haze going on, the movies seem to be the perfect place to go with your family. It’s like you are paying $7.50 for entertainment and aircon. LOL.

Okay, let me introduce you first to the main stars of the show, which you will definitely fall in love with!

This is Mike Wazowski! Yes, he is a cute little monster trying his very best to be a Scarer.

mike2


  This is James P. Sullivan, “Sulley”! He is supposedly very scary but is being scary alone enough to be a Scarer?

sulley2


Ever since Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has always dreamed of becoming a Scarer. What’s the point of being a monster if he cannot scare others? The best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU), so that’s where Mike signed up for the University’s elite Scare program. And that is also where Mike crosses paths with James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman). Mike Wazowski and James P.Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that is not always the case from the start. Just like typical college rivals, they both underestimate each other’s qualities. Both are arrogant. Both are competitive. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program.

And if that’s not enough, they realize they will have to work together, together with a group of misfit monsters, to prove their worth. In Monsters University, Mike and Sulley will overcome their differences and become the best of friends. In the process of becoming best friends, they will fight and argue a lot of course.

There are so many cute monsters you will fall in love with in Monsters University.

These group of misfit monsters are really adorable and funny too.

MU-2

And then, there is the Roar Omega Roar Fraternity. These monsters are supposedly the best of the best Scare majors. So yup, they will be rivals with Mike and Sulley! But their antics tickled us nevertheless.

Cik Maz bakes!

I find absolute pleasure in recommending and blogging about good food because well, when something is really that good, the words will just come out naturally too.

Honestly speaking, I had to say no to quite a number of raya goodies this year. Want to know why? Well, the taste was not quite up to my expectations. How to recommend like that? By lying? In my blog?

DEFINITELY A BIG NO.

Even though I am paid for advertorials, it does not mean that I will accept anything and everything from clients. I do choose carefully, and I will not hesitate to politely reject if I know I cannot blog earnestly for that particular product. Trust me, it’s really not just about the money.

Sorry I sidetracked a bit.

BACK TO FOOD.

If you are thinking of adding on to your raya goodies collection, then may I please recommend to you …

Biskut Cornflakes

SB-1

Biskut Badam

sb-2 

They are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo crunchy and soooooooooooooooo tasty that my girls and everyone in the household finished the entire bottle the moment I was done with the photoshoot for the goodies!  I even asked Mak to taste them and she immediately went, “Okay, very nice. You must promote these goodies.”

Oh, they even have macaroons!

I know you all like macaroons, riggggghhhht?

sb-3

Even Daddy @Lanchiilicrab agreed. He was especially in love with the pastries.

WHAT PASTRIES?

Well, if you guys would like to order pastries like fruit tarts, cream puffs, and cheese tarts for any occasion at all, then I will strongly, strongly recommend these!

Fruit Tarts with the freshest of fruits!

sb-4

Cream puff with generous custard filling!

sb-5

Chocolate Eclairs with generous cocoa filling!

sb-6

Cheese tarts which are just super addictive!

sb-7

They are all homemade with love by Cik Maz Mohamed who enjoys baking so much. She used to just bake for her family members, but this year’s raya will be the first time she is opening for orders! I admit, when her niece Sabariyah (who is also a very dear my friend of mine) came over to my house with the samples, I was a bit skeptical. I thought the goodies would taste just normal. But the moment I popped each cookie/pastry into my mouth, I went “WAH SO NICE AH?!!!!!!!!!!!!” I asked my Nadyas to try a piece each, and they too fell in love immediately. In fact, they kept begging me for more but I told them they had to wait until I was done with the photoshoot for the raya goodies. The following day, they asked me again for the goodies. Again I said no. They kept asking me each and every day until I finally gave up and said yes. Mental torture, you know? Ask ask ask.

Therefore, I have already decided to order more of her Biskut Cornflakes, Biskut Badam and cream puffs!

Want to order too for Hari Raya this year?

Here’s the price list!

order-1

But do remember that since it is a home based business and Cik Maz is the only one doing the baking, she will close orders once her quota is met. 

ORDER LA!

Sweet Retreats.

I really admire young entrepreneurial business owners. Yup, I am referring to youngsters who chose to start a business equipped with innovative ideas and passion, and are actually good at it. Awesome, man!

So for the upcoming Hari Raya, may I recommend to you SWEET RETREATS, a home business set up by a young entrepreneur, Nur Syida? Nur Syida loves baking so much that she decided to turn it from a hobby into a source of income for her. Nur Syida bakes all sorts of desserts and sweet treats for all kinds of events, from parties to weddings to Hari Raya, or even if it’s just to satisfy any customer’s craving.

SR-1

So the other day, Nur Syida personally delivered to my house some goodies from Sweet Retreats on Mother’s Day!

She surprised me with these gorgeous cupcakes! I was really so touched, okay? Mother’s Day this year was extra memorable, thanks to Sweet Retreats. <3

sr-3

Boyfriends and husbands, you can even surprise your girlfriend or wife with these for your anniversary or her birthday!

And oh my goodness, the cupcakes from Sweet Retreats are so soft, moist, yummy and tasty. The frosting is not too sweet too. My girls and even Tatek enjoyed the cupcakes. There were six cupcakes in total, right? Well, each of us took one and finished it, so there was only one cupcake left as a result. Not sure who ate the last one.

Another favourite of mine and my mum has got to be their Paddlepop Suji! Let me assure you that they taste as good as they look! You know what they say about cookies that break a bit on top, right? So yup, you should try these out for Hari Raya and drive all the kids crazy. They taste like the normal suji except that they are made of beautiful pastel colours.

sr-2

Sweet Retreats, can I please order these Paddlepop Suji for Hari Raya? Reserve a slot for me, okay? :)

Besides the Paddlepop Suji, Sweet Retreats bake other kinds of goodies for Hari Raya too.

sr-5

So yup, do not forget to have Sweet Retreats in mind for the upcoming Hari Raya.

Go look for them quick before they stop taking orders.

Sweet Retreats are in FB. Click HERE.

Sweet Retreats are also in Instragram. Click HERE.

Time to Bubble.

Tomorrow will be our second time watching Fan Yang!

Yes, we are going to The Bubble Legendary Show!

Trust me, his show will entertain kids and adults alike. It will be money worth spent. Besides, it is the June holidays, so going to The Bubble Legendary Show by Fan Yang will be one good way to spend quality time with your family, especially your kids. I mean, which kid does not like bubbles?

So hurry, there is still time for you to purchase tickets for today or tomorrow! Tomorrow is the last day, people!
