After all these, sit back and relax while waiting Santa to choose the lucky bloggers!

My wish list, you ask? Of course I'm going to send Santa some wishes of mine and pray hard that I'm the lucky ones.

Dear Santa, first of all, I must say... there are really too many products to choose on Hermo.my. It really took me hours and hours and hours to pick and choose. Nevertheless, I've decided on my wish list and there's only one product on it!



Why I chose this one and only? I've heard a lot of positive remarks on B.liv products and I'm one of the biggest fan of facial masks! Hence, I've would love love love to tryout this mask for myself. Apart from these, the mask helps in deep cleansing, polishing and  moisturize the skin at the same time. Exactly what I need to rescue my skin - especially the holiday season is really near (Christmas and New Year!).

I have open pores issues. By being able to deep cleanse my skin, it would help to reduce my pores. On top of that, with their brightening effect, it will be a solution for me to reduce my acne scars too! The scars have been troubling me for years, and I'm hoping to find a solution for this. With all these goodies pack in one tube, I'm do believe that B.liv will be my skin savior during this festive season - after all, I do want to have a clean and clear skin while meeting up with family and friends!

I've shared my wishlist, and what about you? Get on to your wishlist fast! The wishing period starts from now till 14th December 2013. From 17th December to 24th December, Santa Hermo will be delivering the gifts to all the lucky bloggers!

Finally, I would like to thanks The Butterfy Project for having such amazing contest for us bloggers. They have always been bringing tons of exciting events for us!

[Guest Post] An Expat View of Genting Highlands by Marta

10:18 Unknown 0 Comments

Hey peeps! Today, we have someone special to share some thoughts with us - our very first guest post by Marta Velez!

Marta is a Portuguese, who has been living in Malaysia since August. Marta loves to travel and getting to know other cultures, and also her love for local gastronomy. On top of these, she has a passion in writing and recently she has paid a visit to Genting Highlands, and she would like to share her views with us.

So without further ado, we shall let Marta take us on a Genting Highlands trip through the eyes of an expat!

Enjoy:
~~~~~~~~~



I have been living in Kuala Lumpur and every time I have some time, mostly weekends, I try to travel somewhere, further or closer. Honestly I always try to go to the seaside but this time I decided to go to the mountains: Genting Highlands was my destiny!

I did not know what to expect, I did no kind of research about what I could find there: the only thing I really knew about Genting was that it had a casino and it was cold and I have to say that with such low expectations Genting was a really pleasant surprise.  

I left Kuala Lumpur Saturday morning heading there with an American friend. We decided to book a night on the First World Hotel to be sure we wouldn’t have to worry about time there. The bus took around 45 minutes and left us at the skyway entrance. For about RM3 we got to have a skyway ride that last for about 15 minutes till the top of the mountain and allows you to enjoy an amazing view over the mountains (at first it is actually a bit scary). In europe the skyway itself is considered an attraction, not a way of transportation, and it is usually really expensive and less interesting so only that was worth the trip! 




On top of the hill we found this fantastic resort composed by four different hotels that are all interlink by tunnels (for Malaysia, outside in Genting is really cold and quite often rainy).  Inside this complex you find everything, from restaurants to “street performers”. The decoration is from “out of space”, mini copies of the Eiffel tower, cars hanging on the walls, a roller-coaster that goes pretty much around everywhere are the things that turn genting into this “new fantastic world”. I felt like I was in a movie! 





We had dinner in this amazing place, Ah Yat Abalone (don’t miss it!!)  and hit the casino for a while. As Malays can’t get in the casinos, Genting is full of foreign people that go there to gamble, but surprisingly enough it is also full of families.  After the casino we hit the bars (and there are pretty cool choices).


Sunday we walked around asking if there was something to visit on the mountain and we got directed to the Chinese Temple: Chin Swee Caves Temple.  Once again through skyway we got to this amazing temple in the middle of the mountains. One really interesting detail is the “Journey to Enlightment”, a path with statues representing the ten Chambers of Hell. This Chamber show the suffering one would encounter in hell trying therefore to discourage bad conduct. I have to say: slightly creepy but quite interesting! The Chinese temple was a really amazing surprise as none of us was expecting to find something like this in our small trip.






Back to Genting by skyway (how I loved the skyway) where we got a bus to KL. I am just sad that the amusement outdoor park was closed for renewal (until 2017 or so) that would just made the trip even more amazing! 

Nevertheless Genting is a perfect getaway from the crowded, sometimes too busy Kuala Lumpur: there you have the view, the food, the fun!

Ladies and gentlemen, hope you enjoy reading Marta's experience on Genting Highlands. If you have any recommendations for Marta, please kindly leave your comments below and I'll pass it on to her.

D'italiane Kitchen @ Paradigm Mall

16:59 Unknown 0 Comments

My first visit to D'italiane Kitchen was then branch in Jaya33, and it left quite a positive impression on me. However, during my second visit with my brother and my mom to their branch in Paradigm Mall, it wasn't as good as the first.

First stepped into the restaurant, I like the ambiance - dimmed lighting with wooden furniture - comfy and relaxing, especially after an entire day of working. We were being seated in between the bar and their wine collection.



We waited patiently for our order. We were there early so the crowd hasn't started to build up yet. So, the place was quite and nice.


Calamari Fritti (RM 19.90)

We ordered Calamari Fritti (RM 19.90) as our appetizer to share. The batter was seasoned nicely, the calamari were fried to crunchy on the outside but perfectly cooked on the inside. It was served with a Aioli dip, but frankly, I still prefer the dip from Brussels.

Smoked Duck Aglio Olio (RM 29)
Mom ordered Smoked Duck Aglio Olio (RM 29) as she did not want something too creamy or full of gravy. The aglio olio was almost bland, and I wish they would have season with just a little bit more salt. However, the duck has a pleasant smokiness to it and I totally love any kind of sauteed mushrooms!

Braised Beef Ravioli (RM 29)
The Braised Beef Ravioli (RM 29) I had was average. The pasta was too thick and it started to feel heavy before I could finish half of the dish. The beef was not too bad, but I'd like it to be a bit more tender. On the other hand, the cream sauce was real delicious - creamy and flavourful!

Beef Mustard Raspberry Panini Sandwich (RM 28)
My brother had the Beef Mustard Raspberry Panini Sandwich (RM 28). I did not get to try the sandwich, so couldn't make much of a comment. However, I was busy snatching up the chips at the side!

Our total bill came up to RM 131.08 for 3 - with 2 glasses of warm water (RM1/each) and 1 Ginger Ale (RM 6).

Address: Paradigm Mall, GB03A & GB05A, Kelana Jaya, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangori
