A company outing. We went Tadom Hill, it is suitable for group outing. Not cheap. They have flying fox, and you have to decide on the spot (when buying entrance ticket) whether you want unlimited and only once flying fox. Some of us bought the unlimited flying box, but end up going only once. So unless you are crazy on flying fox, buy the one-time-flying-fox ticket. The small hut in picture above is the starting point of flying fox, and you have to walk quite a distance to go back, and your body can’t be wet (from playing the water activities), so one-time-F-F recommended, instead of the unlimted ones. Do check out Faves who has some discount for this place

Surprisingly, they have quite a lot of accomodation here: https://tadomhillresorts.com/accommodation/

Also a canteen which serves quite nice chicken rice set for only RM10

We play quite a bit of kayak, and with some pushing others to overturn, so some of us fall into the water. The cleanliness of the water is in question, they do put up a sign at the side to make aware this fact.

Before Tadom hill, we went Putrajaya Wetland, which is closed by to see Rhino feeding, quite nice to see them eating grass, papaya etc. We also went to see crocodile in the same compound.

IC_Photo_1

Just for own record, Mutiara Complex, Jalan Ipoh has 2 shops which you can take IC photos. Kedai Gambar Campbell (below pic) charging more expensive. It is better to go to a shop which sells photography equipment (reflective board, tripod etc), ie  DC Color Imaging System Sdn Bhd, so much cheaper

Glove_1

Ladies like to use hand cream. What better is “prevention is better than cure” 😀 Gloves will prevent hands from getting in touch with strong dishwashing detergent. So far these 2 are the more heavy duty ones out of quite a few which i have tried (Aeon value is really small though is medium size; Mr DIY ones doesn’t last long, and once bought a pair which is both for left hand) Above is from HeroMarket in TTDI, priced at RM 7.70… The size is a bit on the small size for this size:M, therefore recommend to size up to L. Bought a L size one, and the fit is perfect.

Glove_2

Above is the best gloves, i think it lasted for quite a while (can’t remember it is 3 months or 6 months) and still sturdy. Bought from Tesco, but i can’t remember which branch, and i seem can’t find them anymore 🙁 This glove is heavy duty, good thickness, and very good. Though it listed as “long cuff”, it is not super long, it is just nice for daily use. This Rubberex is no longer sold in Tesco. But googling Rubberex and few phone calls later, i found it sold in Econmart in Taman Sentosa, Klang for RM9.

MyUS – the best USA forwarding service i have so far

In continuation to my latest experience with Global Shopaholics, though positive, i am almost on lookout for cheaper options.

The previous time is charger 16 lb (7kg) dimensional weight, though actual weight only 4kg. Shipping fee paid is US$93.46

For this time, i am trying my US as they are having promotion for Mastercard, free 1 year membership, with 30% off shipping fee for first month.  I got some items from USA site, and after repacked it is 5.3 lb, which is 2.5kg. I was charge total $53, after 30 discount, it is only $39.

When the package reach me, it is delivered to me via Fedex, the documents did said my purchase has RM58.22 Import GST and RM5 “Free Commercial Zone” charge, total RM63.22, but i am happy to say this import cost is bornt by FedEX, i don’t need to pay for this tax amount, unlike Comgateway/Global Shopoholics which uses DHL, and i need to pay these import tax and charge.

although i really don’t get how my purchase – worth USD 110 and shipping USD39, total is around USD150, which converted to about RM600 can incur RM63.22 charge. The document did say it is 6% tax, but it is more than 10% to me. Anyhoo, as long as i am not paying, it doesn’t really matter

I really like MyUS TruePrice: https://www.myus.com/benefits/shipping/true-price/ calculation method which does not take into consideration the dimensional weight. Save so much when items are like shoes which are generally larger dimensionally.

After trying Comgateway, and Global Shopaholics, i am seeing i think i will like MyUS much more due to TruePrice price calculation method.

No monetary / non-monetary paid to me to promote MyUS, go try MyUS, they have promo where by MasterCard user can get free 2 year membership, first month with 30% off shipping, subsequent months 20%: https://www.myus.com/welcome/mastercardpremium/

Below are my previous shopping experience:

Invited Review: A Cut Above, Midvalley Megamall

ACutAbove_1

Thank you A Cut Above for sponsoring this review. This come timely as I am going for wedding photoshoot soon. Above is the before photo: my very unkempt hair

ACutAbove_2

I choose their Ammonia free hair coloring called INOA by Loreal. It is odorlous, optimal scalp comfort, suitable for those who wants to colour their hair but concern about chemical harshness of normal hair coloring.

ACutAbove_3

With the recommendation from friendly senior stylist Davis, i chose the warm brown series: 6,34, the lowest left most. I at first wanted red, but he said red is hard to maintain, will turn to a unsightly copper after awhile. Warm brown is suitable for those who prefer easy maintenance, and it won’t have a harsh 2-tone-hair as the root grows out.

ACutAbove_4

Above is after hair stylist JoAnne applied the hair coloring on my hair. After awhile, Davis came to examine my hair, and conclude the colour can be washed out after about 15 minutes.

ACutAbove_5

After washing out the color with Loreal INOA organic shampoo – same range as the hair coloring, JoAnn applied hair treatment on my hair. My hair turned so soft and no more tangling after this treatment.

ACutAbove_6

Wrap the whole head in cling wrap, and leave the hair treatment on for 20 minutes.

ACutAbove_7

Trim the unsightly ends, and blow drying

ACutAbove_8

Tada… The color is not obvious in indoor light, actually it is quite hard to tell i have done hair colour in indoor lighting, it just doesn’t dark-rich-colour-but-not-really black, somehow the above photo able to capture the color. I find the color is not very obvious indoor, the color look rich and shiny indoor, nice!

ACutAbove_9

For photoshoot, you can opt for slightly lighter color than what i had. My color is very slight, Davis say the color will turn 1 shade lighter after awhile, suitable for low maintenance or those looking into hair coloring for the first time – perhaps wanting to cover some grey and not wanting something too drastic.
