[Review] Common Labs Ggultamin Real Jel Mask Vitamin C

Hello everyone! :)

This is not the first time I'm writing product review from Common Labs (read here). I am very impressed with its gel essence which is perfect for an intense moisture quench for the skin.

What product is this?

Common Labs' Ggultamin C Real Jel Mask is a 2-step skincare - it comes with a peeling pad for exfoliation and a sheet mask for skin brightening.


What are the key ingredients and their functions?

Propolis extract helps to improve skin hydration and skin barrier.

Vitamin C derivatives for skin brightening and antioxidant.

Niacinamide to strengthen skin barrier and help balance oil production.

Centella Asiatica extract soothes and promotes wound healing.

Packaging

It comes with a good quality paper-like texture packaging - which gives a good impression (for me personally).

Product description is available in both Korean and English - user friendly.



Texture and Scent

The sheet mask itself is made of Cupra sheet - microfiber around cottonseeds which provides a very soft texture and breathable texture. It also holds the brightening jelly essence more effectively.

It doesn't have significant or striking scent.



Application

Wash your face and apply toner. Remove the Peeling Pad from the pouch and gentle swipe it across your face.

Then remove sheet mask from the pouch and gently unfold. Place mask onto the face and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes. Remove and pat in the remaining essence for better skin absorption. Proceed with the rest of your PM skincare routine.

Here's how I incorporate this 2-step skincare into my night routine.


PM routine:

Makeup remover > Cleanser > Peeling Pad hereSheet Mask here > Eye Cream



Personal Experience

Despite this is not my first time using sheet mask from the series, I'm still amazed with its gel essence. No doubt it's so rich in hydration! Perfect for travelling because the air is usually very dry in the hotel room.

To be honest, I can't say much on its brightening effect since I am not using it consistently.



Where to purchase?

This product has repackaged and you may find it on Hermo for RM45/5pcs.

Rating: 4/5

[Restaurant] Late Night Dinner @ Odette Music Restaurant & Bar

Hello everybody!
Just touched down in Kuala Lumpur, and was brought here by my friend for a late night dinner.


Odette Music Restaurant & Bar


Late Night Dinner @ Odette Music Restaurant & Bar


- Address : Lot 19, Jalan PPU 2A, Taman Perindustrian Puchong Utama, 47100 Puchong, Selangor
- Operating Hours : 11AM - 12AM
- Phone : 03-8068 9919



Late Night Dinner @ Odette Music Restaurant & Bar


I was caught in amazement when we walked into the restaurant.
It is decorated with racks of red wine bottles and the unique green lime lighting surely creates a laid-back hippy atmosphere.

Also they decorated the entire ceiling with hanging artificial plants, makes you feel like walking into an indoor magical garden.


Late Night Dinner @ Odette Music Restaurant & Bar



In terms of food choice, you can get both Asian and Western cuisine here.
And you know me, can't say 'no' to pasta.



Late Night Dinner @ Odette Music Restaurant & Bar



I ordered Smoked Salmon Pasta.
Honestly, I have high expectation on their food since they put extra effort on setting the atmosphere.
For me, the pasta is too salty / savoury where it overlaps the salmon taste.
Serving portion is small considered it's pricing.
Truly, not the best pasta I had. :')



Late Night Dinner @ Odette Music Restaurant & Bar



Nevertheless, it won't stop me from revisiting this restaurant because I really enjoy the dining atmosphere where there will be live jamming / singing on the weekends.

Oct 19 Birthday Dinner @ Adelphi & Co.

Hello October!
And we are the October babies.. mum and I.


Thanks to our beloved only man in the family (a.k.a. my dad),
we are celebrating our birthday at Adelphi & Co,
a really really atas place to have really really good steak.





Not gonna lie, this is not a dining place that I can afford, not even on a monthly basis..


Thanks dad for the premium experience. :3


Okay, not only for me lah, mainly for my mum as beef is her favourite.
C'mon, we are here for some serious good premium juicy beef (oh yeahhh).


If you know little (to nothing) about beef (that's me),
better ask for the waiter to explain the menu.
Their service is professional and the staffs are patient in explaining the menu.


Is it a rib-eye or striploin that my parents had ordered?
Geez, I have no idea.


One thing for sure, THE BEEF IS SO GOOOD!





My parents requested the beef to be cooked medium to well-done.
It might looked a bit dry (crispy) on the outer crust,
but oh dear, tender juicy on the inside.





Geez, why I didn't take photo of the inside... (blaming myself silently)



Oh, speaking of surprise element,
you know what has blown my taste bud?


Have you had foie gras (a.k.a. the liver of a duck or goose)?


THIS!




Phew, THIS IS SO GOOOOOD!!!


The taste reminds me a bit of the fatty layer of pork meat,
but the texture is nothing like that.
So soft, tender and full of flavour.



Actually I'm more of a pasta-lover.
I ordered Truffle & Bacom Pappadelle,
which is served with wild mushroom, Parmigiano, 63 degree egg.





To ensure the freshness and the quality of the pasta,
they make their own pasta from scratch, freshly everyday.
If you appreciate good pastas, this is the right place.


The pasta is rich in flavours, and yet not overwhelming.





I would say it was taste-satisfying high-end restaurant dining experience here in Adelphi & Co.
Excellent food and service in overall.


Worth it or not?
It really depends on the willingness of you spending on some really good food.


Thanks dad for bringing us here tonight! Awesome dinner.
I won't be able to have this kind of premium experience without you..
(plainly because I can't afford to in my current situation lol)





Mum, I hope you enjoyed the food. Happy birthday to you!Love you always:3

电影《JOKER》观后感想

这部电影你看了吗?

我记得我是带着很沉重的心情走出的电影院。头部还微微地发疼。

自己一个人的时候也想了很多。

世界是不是生病了?
我们到底活在一个怎么样的世界里。
不平等待遇、欺压、仇恨、离异、嫉妒、暴力……天天在上演。

我听过有人这么引述“孩子们生下来是一张白纸,全是后天的造化塑造了今天的我们”。

很多时候我们会带着有色眼镜去看别人。
我也为之忏愧。
但其实我们不知道这些人的背景,是什么导致他们今天的情况。

很大可能是因为我们没有兴趣花时间了解对方,
从而产生了误会和歧视。

这部电影提醒了我要多关怀身边的人,
不单指的是物质上,
更多的是精神上的需要。

电影比较暴力、血腥,不适合小孩子观看。
但确实是一部令人改观的电影。

如果你已经看了这部电影,
或许你会有共鸣。

-----

spoiler alert.

电影一开始,你或许已经下意识地设下了有角色设定:
“啊这就是他,看起来精神状态和正常人不一样。”

因为这个缺陷,他饱受了人们的欺侮。

但私下的他其实是个很体贴的儿子,每天定时照顾母亲的起居。

他不明白为什么母亲坚持不懈地写信给当今市长候补人。
母亲还说,要是那男人知道他们母子俩现在的情况,一定会同情他们的。
后来才从母亲的陈述中了解到了自己的身世。

他寻找机会,鼓起勇气去认亲。
却知得他母亲其实患有妄想症。

事实是他是被他母亲领养的,
而且当他还是襁褓婴儿的时候,
就遭受了母亲的虐待,
导致他如今的精神障碍。

从而看来,他,错了吗?
没能出生在一个健全的家庭里,是他的错吗?
没能像正常人一样生活,是他自己所导致的吗?
他万万没想到啊。

活在一个郁闷的社会里,
弱势群体成了人们发泄情绪的对象。
万万不应该,可是它还是在发生。

就像小小的火苗遇上燃油,
他爆发了。

他的出现,人们有两极化的态度。
有人视他为变态杀人魔,也有人拥戴他为反不平等待遇的领路人。

是好,是坏,岂是一句话可以概括的?

-----

在阅读侦探故事时,往往在交代杀手的背景的时候,多半我们会发现他们来自一个破碎的家庭,又或者经历过某些难以释怀的创伤。

是病态社会塑造的杀手,还是变态杀手塑造的社会?

-----

处在现今生活步伐紧凑的时代,大家会有感到疲惫、无助的时候;
寻找正确的情绪发泄管道是很重要。

我本身就很享受在卡拉OK房放肆嘶吼唱歌。:p

祝愿大家身心灵健康、快乐。
take care and till the next time. cheers :)
