Today’s Journal #10

Husband is away for work since last Sunday and will be back on Friday which is tomorrow. Yay! No more lonely nights lol.

I stayed at my parents house for two nights because it’s my Dad’s birthday and went back to the city on Tuesday for an interview BUT I was late!! I can’t believe I drove since 5 in the morning, the interview was at 9 and I’m still late. Why? uggh it’s the traffic jam!! I know I should’ve just get back in the city on Monday but I have to babysit my cute little nephew Psalm; got no choice. Hmm it’s okay.

When husband is not around I got to cook whatever I want…or no cook at all 😁. Brunch looks like eggs-diet but seriously it’s not. It’s the only food I got before I go for groceries shopping. And for dinner, I had pan-grilled chicken breast with long beans with garlic (oh i love roasted garlic!) and tomatoes. I really love that grilled chicken!

On Wednesday, breakfast with overnight oatmeal with coconut juice or something like coconut milk that I bought from a newly open store called 7Circle. It’s my first time with coconut milk; here we only use raw coconut milk, unsweetened in a cooking such as chicken curry. And for dinner, I cooked Buttermilk Chicken! Not feeling guilty at all with the butter and the milk…nope. Not until I woke up bloated LOL!

Went to the post office to retrieve an item that my husband bought online only to know that I have no rights to claim it since it’s not under my name unless I have my husband approval or to be exact his signature. Oh well. What a waste of time. So they asked me to call a number in order for me to request a second delivery. I was so confused why should I call “their colleague” when I’m actually still right there? Can’t they just proceed my request with whatever system they got there? But of course I just rolled my eyes and left. As soon as I got home, I called the number for the second delivery and they said okay. So today I patiently waited at home until 5pm but they never came. Well…well…let me figure out what to do next.

I got so upset so I went out at 6pm for a little groceries shopping. Who goes for shopping at 6pm? Haha. After grocery, I checked the traffic maps and it was still packed with cars so I decided to takeaway pizza since I’m gonna be lazy to cook as soon as I reached home.

Pizza and Law & Order SVU, right on time! 😊 who watch it too? Hi-5!

It’s 11:15pm here now so I have to go and get my beauty sleep 😉 speaking of beauty, next post will be about beauty – my not so beauty skin condition.

Bye for now!

Today’s Journal #9

Went back to hometown with my sister last weekend and all I did was eat and eat everything! Ugghh must start regular workout and watch out my food intake already! Got back to the city and I did the same too more eating, zero exercise LOL!

We just had our regular breakfast (what’s regular here: big portion of fried noodles or rice with side dishes such as eggs or dim sum) and suddenly husband’s boss call for a meeting at their office. So while waiting for him, there’s no other place to go except to this nearby cafe; The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. If there’s a library nearby I rather sit there than adding another calories but oh well… At first I was going to just have that one big glass of Hazelnut latte but my eyes just can’t resist the fruity scone! 😝

Next morning, husband got up early and went to work. So it’s a perfect morning for oatmeal since husband is not really a fan of oats. Got these honey mangoes from my dad’s backyard while we were at hometown and it’s the best type of mango I ever had! Yum!

Right now, we’re currently at husband’s hometown since last Tuesday. Husband’s on sick leave because he got shingles on his back. Poor him. But it’s getting better though thank God!!

On the bright side, while husband’s having his good rest yesterday, I drove to the town with sister in law to meet my bestfriend, Jessica. Whenever we’re in husband’s hometown, we never really go out from his parents’ house. But me being me, I just need to go out!

While waiting for Jessica, me and SIL went to this little cafe. It’s actually my second time there but only yesterday I noticed the cheap prices on the menu! Well of course it’s quite expensive for a small town like that and just for a cup of coffee, but compared to a cup from the main city, it’s cheaper.

TFC – Tenom Fatt Choi Cafe

I had hot chocolate, Ice blended green tea for my SIL and those little cuties Profitelores. All these three stuffs on our table only costs me RM17! Great! Ohhhh I must tell I really love that choux à la crème! So dreamy! ❤ I think it’s my first time with these french cream puffs? I wonder if there’s any cafe in the city that serves this profitelores. Pleaseee tell me if you know there is!!

After that, Jessica called me and said she’s at another cafe called Tenom Coffee Valley. It was a 3 minutes drive from TFC cafe.

Since I didn’t have a proper lunch, I ordered something heavier LOl. It’s always over calories here.

As you can see, I’m trying my best not to order another sweet drink

I got TomYum noodles soup that costs only RM9.90 for this big portion! I didn’t finish all the noodles because it was so much for a bowl. My friend had Mee Basah Ayam (Chicken fried noodles with gravy) but I didn’t got a picture of it. As for my SIL, she had chocolate cake.

RM6.90

It’s cheap but it’s not bad. Had a really good talks with my bestfriend and realized it’s almost 5pm so we decided to go home.

Right now, I just had my lunch and I’m thinking of watching a movie so I gotta go.

Wish you all have a great day! ❤

Love, Mich 🌸

Review: Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner and Miracle Cream

If you’ve read my Today’s Journal #8, I mentioned about this skincare briefly and by now I’ve been using it for 30 days.

First of all, I’m thankful to be picked as one of the participants in this Miracle Review Campaign; received free two items, test it and give it a review at the end of this month.

My skin type & condition: Combination, dull skin, dark spots, open pores, blackhead

To begin with, I don’t normally have pimples except around my menstrual cycles but I guess due to over exposed to the sun while camping few months ago, without any layer of protection on my face (I know I’m bad) my forehead got a little dry than ever and its trigger the pimples to go out!

The Skincare Claims:

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner

Works as effective exfoliator to leave skin cleaner and more radiant than before.

  • Skin Exfoliation
  • Pore Tightening
  • Hydration
  • Brighter Skin Tone

Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream

A lightweight gel cream moisturizer perfect for all skin types especially for oily and acne-prone.

  • Skin Barrier
  • Damage Care
  • Skin Soothing
  • Anti-inflammatory

Application: After cleansing, I apply the toner on my face and neck with cotton pad. Then I apply the cream.

My thoughts: On the first day when I applied this toner, it stings but only on both sides of my nose. At the end of the first week, I realized some of the tiny acne scars were gone. Second week, less pimples on my forehead and my dark spots were lightened a bit (not sure if it’s from this product or from my current intensive brightening serum?). I can say, my skin looks more radiant. In week three, my skin purge! But not that bad though, the pimples on my forehead came back and it started with bumps then redness with a little pus. I decided to let the cotton pad sit on that area for a few seconds, and after 3-4 days they started to dry up. Final thoughts, I still have those tiny bumps and they’re actually a lot than before or maybe because it’s 2 days to my expected menstrual cycle. I don’t think I can achieve a miraculous flawless skin in just 30 days with these two items. Perhaps I need more time if I wish to continue with this product.

Pros: Purges the acne but later will heal and minimizes pore for smoother skin. One bottle of toner probably will last for more than a month. Mine still have about 80% left.

Cons: A bit drying for my combination skin type (dry forehead, oily nose) so I need to layer a hydrating toner.

Since my previous skincare doesn’t do any wonders too, I think I’m going to continue using these product for my evening routine.

*updates 13/11/2018*

I did includes these two items for my evening routine and suddenly I got a shocking reaction since two days ago! I got more of that tiny bumps or maybe they’re now rashes because it’s so itchy, red and uncomfortable! Even my skin type is now changing to dry from combination/oily. What makes me so sure this is allergic reaction and not purging? It’s painful! Itchy but at the same time it’s stinging all over my face. There’s no way I would continue again. Perhaps AHA BHA PHA does not suit me. My best advice, do your patch test before anything else.
