The Color Run – the happiest 5k on the planet!

Comments (0) Health, Spiritual, Health & Develop

I never ever thought i’d get up at 4 am for a run.

I mean, if i think about it, i did go climb mountains all through the night before, so this is nothing?! With my hedonistic lifestyle for letting loose on weekends, waking up early on Sat or Sun just doesn’t happen. Except in my mind. Sometimes i imagine enthusiastically that i’ll wake up for a run on a weekend. Then day of, i end up sleeping at 4am the night prior. #oldhabitsdiehard #stilltrying #guessidontreallywantto #YET

The Color Run was admittedly a work thang. We coordinated the influencers who were promoting it, and Baby was away on her honeymoon (cos her Polish artist bf flew to this side of the world) so i went to represent.

Call time was at 6 am.
Cars were already lined up along Padang Merbok (near Jalan Parlimen) and my Grab had probs dropping me off cos the cops had closed many roads due to 3 runs going on that morning! I’m kinda glad to see how healthy the ppl of KL are!

6:30 am and i was the only one there waiting for everyone else to arrive…
As long as they turned up in time, i was happy HAHA.

The night before i’d gone to bed by 10 pm so i’d have ample rest for the run early next morn, and Good Vibes Fest the evening of the same day! I didn’t go to GVF on Sat cos i didn’t wanna tire myself out, plus the whole week was already crazy. I needed ONE DAY to rest!

Didi and Rengee went for GVF on Sat, slept at 2am Sat night, woke up at 5am on Sunday, went for TCR, then again for GVF the same day.

They are insane.

L: Didi, me, and Rengee
R: the KOLs we managed – Denise Chan, me, Jenn Chia, Zooey Oh

It was my first time meeting the 3 KOLs, and we’d only communicated on the phone/email so it was interesting for me to stand there and take in all their super excited 20-something year old energy. Wow we are really vibing on a diff frequency… i must have been like that in the past… but i’m not sure, i never was a morning person! Ever.

Leading Italian beauty brand Pupa was sharp enough to realise that as more women move towards an active lifestyle, there would be a need for make up designed especially for sport. Now we can look way more presentable despite the beads of sweat running down our faces whilst running / yoga / dance / etc. In fact, this collection could be your next coveted make up must-have to chat up that cute guy in the gym instead of running away with your face down post-workout.

Designed with research, technology, and quality in mind while staying innovative and fashionable; Pupa just launched their Sport Addicted make up range that has been specially formulated for use during sports activities. Sweat-proof, waterproof, and sport-proof – the range comprise of beauty enhancements for the face, eyes and lips that are comfortable and long-lasting.

Thanks to Jaslene at Sasa Malaysia for sending me some of it to try!

I have this habit of opening my eyes wide when applying certain make up XD

The Sport Addicted Concealer is lightweight and easy to apply. I like the texture cos it blends easily and quickly without getting patchy. There’s a tinge of a radiant finish after, making me look more ‘awake’. Of course, it’s sweat-proof, to ensure it lasts throughout sport.

Seminyak Village: Eat, drink, shop, yoga

Comments (2) Bali, Explore, Travel & Stay, Featured Post, Indonesia, Travel

Been going through my barrage of Bali photos wondering how i’m gonna split them out, and decided the best is to just start by topic and keep going!

I spent a fair amount of time in Seminyak Village, mostly cos Lexie and Kim (whom i crashed with half my time in Seminyak), is temporarily in Bali working for the brand. I’d hear them talk about work when they got home every evening, and ended up knowing bout the projects going on, and occasionally get pulled in to give my two cents.

Seminyak Village is a large spacious mall smack in the middle of bustling Seminyak filled with great restaurants and stores like MCM, Farah Khan, Rimowa, Ashley IshamPlay Clan & Friends, MC2 Saint Barth, Bamboo Blonde, and many more.

It was just a 10-min car ride from where we lived, so it was easy for me to pop over for lunch, drinkies, spa, yoga, etc. There’s more than meets the eye, just thinking about SV now actually makes me miss it a bit! I love the high ceilings with natural light and it’s so spacious.

There was one afternoon i went to have lunch with the gang at Tiger Palm, and thanks to Kim’s iPhone 7+ and his speedy photo skillz, we got great photos.

I’m wearing an embellished silk kaftan top from Camilla, available at multi-label store M Resort. Good luck with your credit card. It is impossible to not find something you’d love in there.

Yup, Kim got my wine face. Right there.

We felt like fish that day so ordered the fish curry and cod, with rice and… chardonnay.

Tiger Palm was opened by Chef Will Meyrick (also the creator of the dining concepts at Mamasan and Sarong) and “inspired by his travels, his in-depth research of South East Asian cuisine, and his close associations with some of the region’s top chefs.”

The diverse menu is influenced by Thai street food, Malaysian Nyonya kitchen, Chinese traders, the kitchen wallahs of Southern India; and features dishes like slow braised beef cheek in pomegranate; sun dried cuttlefish + green mango salad; Burmese lamb shoulder curry with mungbean; and grilled Sulawesi lamb shank with young jackfruit.

Watch: Napping Princess

Comments (1) Art, Architecture & Culture

This movie poster now hangs on my wall cos… it fits.

napping-princess-movie-poster

I just got it yesterday from the Napping Princess media movie premiere at TGV, and i guess i’ll let it remain there till i tire of it XD

I love anime because the Japanese – who are so dedicated to the art of order, creativity and intuition – transmit the emotion of make-believe and other worlds & dimensions straight to one’s core. It’s a wonderfully surreal feeling to be transported elsewhere as if you went on a journey, and exit the cinema a different person after. [Another recent memorable anime is Your Name, if you haven’t checked that off your list yet.] Expect some lol moments and holding back tears :p

Napping Princess opens in cinemas nationwide in Malaysia from 3rd August!
