If you have been following Street Love long enough you will know that I love buying American products even before I am a beauty blogger. Now that I am one, I secretly like to source for American makeup products that are not available in Malaysia. There is something about owning products which no one or less people own that makes it even more special. Watching lots of Youtube videos does not help. It makes me crave for even more new makeup releases, hoping one fine day these brands will hit Malaysia market.
No matter where you live, whether it is in an apartment or a home that you own, you want your walls to look good. When money is tight, it can be challenging to find pieces that work within your decor’s theme and within your budget. Apartment decoration is especially challenging, as often you cannot nail things into the wall. The need for lightweight, but attractive budget decoration is even more apparent. The ideas below will help you get your walls looking great and keep your budget in check.
During the year-end holiday season, your skin is more prone to damage from traveling, air-conditioning, sleeping less and partying more. While all of this added stress can cause dullness and dehydration, an extra boost of moisturization and nourishment is what you need to get your skin back on top. Rescue tired skin with this pampering ritual so you can start the year looking your very best.
Step 1: Eliminate Impurities
Beautiful skin starts with a clean surface, so it’s vital to remove all of your makeup, along with any dirt and impurities from the day by thoroughly cleansing. Opt for
SK-II’s Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser, which conditions your skin as it gently removes impurities in and around pores.
Step 2: Strengthen Skin
Strengthen your skin with the multi-benefit Facial Treatment Essence, which instantly soothes dehydrated and dull skin. Containing over 90% Pitera, this iconic essence penetrates easily into the skin for immediate hydration and moderates the renewal cycle to improve your skin’s texture. An essential in any skincare regimen, Facial Treatment Essence is the key to long-lasting, crystal clear skin with a natural radiance.
Step 3: Lock Moisture In
Tired skin can cause rougher skin texture and more visible pores. Run an ice cube over your skin, then smooth in a dropper-full of R.N.A. Power Essence. The combination of cold water and anti-aging serum will immediately help to tighten the pores and improve your skin’s texture for a smooth, pore-less surface. Then layer on the R.N.A. Power Radical New Age for a healthy dose of moisture that leaves your skin silky soft and hydrated. Work it gently into your skin with light fingertips to give yourself a comforting massage at the same time.
Step 4: Revitalize and Relax
One of the best me-time rituals is a luxurious sheet mask. What is more relaxing than zoning out while a Facial Treatment Mask does its magic on revitalizing your skin? Each sheet is soaked in an indulgent concentration of PITERA™, instantly immersing your skin in intense hydration. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for fatigued skin as well as your senses.
Now you can go to all the party invitations without any worries 😉 . Happy New Year peepes!

1. Penang Road Teochew Chendol
Just like many other delicacies, there are many places in Penang where you can get a mean bowl of chendol but if you are planning to experience on local eating ways then you will need to go Penang Road. Some says that this is the birthplace of this delicious dessert. The original taste simply cannot be compared with those from the franchised air conditioning stores. Come to think of it, having a bowl of cold chendol while standing under the scorching sun is simply delightful. The thirst-quenching bowl of chendol will help you defeat the heat!
2. Wai Kee Char Siew Rice
To be candid, i have never thought Penang could be famous for char siew rice. Here, you will get the perfect combination of roasted pork, char siew, roasted duck, roasted chicken and Chinese sausage. The char siew is barbequed at a very delicate level where the fat will melt in your tongue and don’t even get me started with one of the crispiest roasted pork in Penang.
3. Hong Kong Tea Garden
Hong Kong Tea Garden is a good example of a private hawker market where stalls arise around an already existing restaurant.

Asam Laksa is indeed a famous local delicacy in Penang and it is even coined as Penang Laksa for being an indigenous food of Penang. You can find asam laksa in every nook and corner of Penang but one specifically stands out will be Nan Guang Coffee Shop’s Asam Laksa.
Beyond the buzzing city with bumper-to-bumper traffic and premium complexes and high rises, lies a quiet town named Balik Pulau. Although it sounds like a place far away from the city, it is actually still consider a stone throw away with 15 to 30 minutes drive away from Georgetown. This is the very place for you to get a taste full of the famous asam laksa.

Tandoori chicken which is the Flamingo esque, Indian grilled staple hen was first adopted by the locals hen the Indians first arrived in Penang just after Penang had being colonized by the British in the 1800.

However, these are not the same as the tandoori at Kassim Mustafa Nasi Kandar.
The Tandoori here is special and above all, open 24/7 to serve people from all walks of life. This is normally served together with any naan you prefer.

Tired of the same old coat and hats from countless winter seasons ago? It may be time to update your winter wardrobe with a few new signature items. While a full closet revamp may not be in the cards (or budget), anyone can give their style a facelift by incorporating some of the season’s hottest trends and women’s accessories. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorites this season, guaranteed to bring new life to your classic winter fashion.
Chances are, you have a go-to winter coat that’s warm, reliable, and likely a shade of black or grey. While a basic winter jacket is something everyone should own, why not add in a little something different in the mix with a statement coat. Outerwear is one of the easiest ways to express personal style and incorporate different colors and designs, and there’s no shortage of brands and designers to choose from. What makes it a statement is up to you. You could choose a bright, eye-catching color like yellow or pattern like plaid. Or choose a different fabric like faux fur or velvet. Feeling a little old school? Go with a vintage-inspired style.
Another easy way to step up your winter wardrobe is to step into some unexpected leggings. If you don’t already own a pair, leggings are a great addition to your closet and are versatile enough that you’re sure to wear them often. They can be worn with oversized sweaters and sweater dressers, and fit perfectly under boots (another winter staple). But don’t just stick to basic black — the beauty with leggings is they come in so many colors and can add a lot of personality to an outfit with very little effort. Even if you’re not into the leggings look, a pair of non-blue jeans will have the same effect. Try a dark red or even green velvet to stay current (and festive) for the season.
These have been winter must for years, so chances are you have one or two hanging in your closet. And while on their own they may not seem too exciting, paired with right accessories an oversized sweater can really make an outfit pop. Practically speaking, these sweaters are perfect for the cooler weather. Warm and comfortable? A total winter win. Pair it with some tight leggings, booties and a chunky necklace, and you’ll be inspiring some serious style envy. Top it off with that statement jacket, and you’ll be ready for even the fiercest winter (and runways).
While boots have long been the winter shoe of choice, try diversifying your collection with some booties. These hit just at the ankle and go great with leggings and dresses. But if you love the idea of your tall boots and you’re feeling especially adventurous, you could even go the other direction and invest in some thigh-high boots. These have been making more and more appearances over the years, and have become a popular variation on the classic boot. And don’t forgot that perfect pair of cozy socks to go with whichever boot you choose. Check out a great site like MuckBootCompany.com to find a variety of quality boots in numerous styles.
These don’t have to be boring anymore; go for a nice pair of thick, wool socks or choose a boutique brand like Stance. This awesome company lets you make custom socks, so you can stay truly stylish from head to toe. Find styles perfect for any preference—get silly with pineapple designs, throw on a pair of Rihanna-designed footwear, or even check out some sporty and hilarious Allen Iverson socks for your favorite guy. Who knew socks could be so exciting?
One of winter’s finest accessories has to be the scarf. Another staple that’s flown high on the fashion radar over the years, scarves have become part of the essential winter wardrobe, and lightweight, colorful scarves have been adorning outfits for the past few seasons. This year, mix it up with chunky scarf (or try the newer, cozier blanket scarf) to keep it warm while making a statement.
Add a few of these items this fashion repertoire, and you’ll be ready to brave the season in style.
