Jom Gaya Hidup Sihat ~ Makan dan Exercise

Another chapter of my exercise diary .. hidup Misz-ella camni la .. kalau tak kerja, exercise. Kalau tak kat Event kat Gym. Tu je la tempat...

Tips cantik dengan Clinique #3steps for healthy radiant skin

Hello beautiful readers ..

This sharing is about the new Clinique 3 steps skincare range yang Misz-ella guna since early July this year. Well .. since I always love to share with my lovely readers .. apa-apa yang baik dan bagus haruslah dikongsi bersama.

The full set of Clinique 3 steps skincare range ~ The liquid facial soap, clarifying lotion 2 and moisturizing lotion 

Seperti biasa, cuci muka dua kali sehari .. and for me sometimes more than twice sebab Misz-ella kan selalu pergi Gym so haruslah membersihkan muka berkali-kali. Take a pump of Clinique liquid facial soap apply to your whole face *I would like to recommend double cleanse to remove the dirt away* I mean cuci dua kali *hehe*

I love any kind of skincare that exfoliate the dead cell on our skin. Sebab kan, sel-sel mati kat muka kita akan membuatkan kulit kita kusam dan tidak berseri. What I love about Clinique Clarifying lotion 2 *which act like a Toner too* is it exfoliate *mengelupas/membuang* sel-sel mati di muka kita menjadikan kulit kita lebih berseri hari demi hari tanpa kita sedari.

Moisturizing lotion
Lepas dah segarkan kulit, haruslah kita pastikan kulit sentiasa lembab dengan menggunakan 'moisturizing lotion' ini. We hate dry skin, right. Kulit kalau terlalu kering hanya akan mempercepatkan proses penuaan .. garis kedut senang kelihatan dan kulit kelihatan sangat tak sihat. Untuk kulit Misz-ella, this Clinique moisturizing lotion + sangat berkesan. Pergi mana-mana pun kawan puji kulit I cukup moist dan tiada kedut di muka *auwwww .. suka gila*

And the Champion is *the most favourite* the Clinique Clarifying lotion 2. I love how this lotion exfoliate my skin .. mildly and gently. With Clinique Clarifying lotion 2, everyday is a smiling day as I can see my skin condition improve *so happy*

Clinique skincare products are available at all leading Mall in Malaysia *I bought in from Pavilion branch* The price is not so pricey. You all, cubalah. Jom cantik sama-sama jom.

Senaman Hari Merdeka

From Desa Parkcity to Chez Leoniel to Klang and to Sg Buloh - my Merdeka day is Rainbow !

The Mix Dance Workout was awesome. Masuk lagu ke 3, peluh menitik membasahi lantai tari. To be honest I am still having my muscle pain .. I was at the Gym last Monday and the exercise was extreme. Woke up on Tuesday morning with muscle soreness but that wasn't stop me from moving. Hidup ni penuh dengan cabaran. Asalkan kita berani keluar dari 'comfort zone' dan mencabar diri untuk melakukannya .. In sha Allah we will achieve our goal. Exercise di malam Merdeka ni memang puas gila. Puas dapat melenjan diri, puas melihat peluh menitis, puas kerana saya mengamalkan gaya hidup sihat. 

Yah .. I guess I was born to be a fighter and trust me that the best fight in the world is fight against yourself, not others. Life is like a book. Every pages, every chapter has their own stories. Thanks to the challenges, the up and down that made me stronger today. I love my life !

Meanwhile, jom kita bersenam. Untuk diri kita. Kerana kita sayangkan diri kita. 

MERDEKA Day at Chez Leoniel

Woke up this morning with the MERDEKA spirit.

Saya anak Malaysia. Saya sayang Malaysia. Walau hati sedih dan kesal dengan apa yang berlaku di Malaysia sekarang ini, saya tetap berdoa agar Allah SWT selamatkan Malaysia. 

My MERDEKA brunch earlier at Chez Leoniel, my favourite French Cafe at  Alliance Francaise de Kuala Lumpur located at 15 Lorong Gurney, 54100 Kuala Lumpur. In conjunction with MERDEKA celebration, this French Cafe served our local favourite food, Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang.

As usual, I love the ambience of Chez Leoniel 

The crowd were seen enjoying the Nasi Lemak. Heyy .. Its only for today 

As usual, I love the fresh from the oven French pastries served here

Sugar free Hazelnut cake, Orange madeleine and Madeleine made from the imported ingredients from France. Lovely!

Chicken and Mushroom Quiche ~ Yummy !

Oh dear .. this sugar free Chocolate tart are so tempting! Too bad I was too full .. one small piece was enough for me

Sugar less local dessert ~ Not too sweet or too creamy like mom used to prepared for me. This is so good and healthy.

Thanks to Kak Yun my brunch partner today. Today is MERDEKA Day. I am free from my kitchen, my family and my daily routine. MERDEKA!

And there was Violet Flame Crystals on Sale too.

Today is MERDEKA Day. I guessed some of you might want to spend your quality time with your loved one in a special place. The MERDEKA Day promo is available till 6pm today. Why don't you make your way to Chez Leoniel and give yourself a try? I just did! Happy Independence day, Malaysia. MERDEKA!

This is a very beautiful and elegant entry. Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2016 has ended and I have a new discovery and would love to share it here with my lovely readers. 

This entry is about Romyda_KL, a new label which hit the market since May 2016. Thank You very much to the invitation from Selina Yeop Jr & Ning Baizura that witnessed me made my way to the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready to Wear 2016 opening. I am one of the proud audience at the Concourse, Pavilion KL who enjoyed watching the variety stunning collection of Romyda_KL on the runway.

Romyda_KL is a brand that combines the prowess of Romyda Keth, a Cambodian designer with nearly 30 years of experience in her craft, as well as Selina Yeop Jr and Ning Baizura as the Creative Directors of this new label which hit the Malaysian market since May 2016. As a beauty lover, I am all excited to know Romyda_KL more. 

The lovely Selina Yeop Jr and our bestfriend Leoniel Dg

It was fun watching the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2016 opening with Leoniel Dg, my bestfriend who know me a lot. OK .. this one suits you. Hey Ella .. this is you! Definitely your taste. Tq for your understanding, friend.

And Thank You for the good spot allocated for us. Great view, perfect angle. Our seats were awesome!

Spotted the fabulous Fazura and Kavita Kaur among the crowd. I was impressed with Fazura's knee length dress and was told later that Fazura was wearing one of the Romyda_KL's collection. Wow! Can't wait to see more .. *excited*

The first Romyda_KL's collection which appeared on the runway was the yellowish blouse with the black floral hand painted skirt. I was .. Leoniel .. this is nice! I liked the skirt. Is it one piece or 2 pieces?

And I felt in love with the above yellow dress too. The two tone V-shape collar *I always love V-shape collar dress*, the black, white and yellow geomatric pattern made of overlapping thin strips of fabrics that formed 'a belt', the floral hand painted skirt and look at the sleeves .. Wow .. the designer are just too detail with every inches of the dress. This is my wishlist!

And again! The black dress caught my attention! I love the combination of the 'lively' colours used and the design ~ Simple yet elegant, feminine and Stunning!

Definitely suits those Lady in black and the Lady in red ..

The combination of colours, the waistline design of the 1st dress and the floral print of both dresses .. NICE!

I love the red turtle neck knee length dress. It represents the image of an elegant, feminine, modern, professional career woman and I love the black dress too! 

What do you think about this? ELEGANT! right! *bucket list added* 

The glamorous collection of Romyda_KL on the runway during the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2016 opening received a big round applaused from the audience. 

And I present you .. The two beautiful ladies behind Romyda_KL ~ the lovely Selina Yeop Jr and our Malaysian favourite Soprano vocal singer Ning Baizura.

Aroma Ikan Bakar, Pantai Remis, Jeram, Kuala Selangor

Hello hai readers. Assalamualaikum.

Back to my favourite place for seafood in Jeram ~ Aroma Ikan Bakar. Rasanya dah lebih dari setahun Misz-ella tak ke sini so when Aiman suddenly said nak makan ikan bakar, we were like .. Heyy Lets Go!!

Ikan Siakap Tiga Rasa ~ I was refused to order this dish initially because usually most of the restaurant will prepare 'Tiga Rasa' which the taste is similar to Sweet Sour but this one is really awesome! Tiga rasa ~ masam, manis dan pedas .. unfortunately it was a bit salty. Garam murah ke Tukang Masak?

The Siakap we chosed are big enough for two dishes ~ Ikan Siakap Stim Limau. Sedap tapi sedikit pelik sebab ada Tahu Telur. Whatever .. makan sampai licin!

Next was Ikan Pari Bakar. OhOh .. Pari is always my favourite. Dicicah dengan Kicap bercili dan Air Asam Jawa. Unfortunately the Air Asam Jawa sangat pekat dan kuat rasa belacannya *I can't* but I enjoyed the Sambal kicap bercili very much *sorry tak da gambar*

We also ordered 2 pieces of Sotong (Big) and this is our Sotong Goreng Cili ~ The sotong is very fresh, perfectly cooked .. tak liat dan sangat lembut. Tidak terlalu pedas. Favourite!!

And Sayur Campur too ~ Sayur sangat fresh dan very crunchy tapi sayang sedikit masin. Again .. garam murah kah wahai si Tukang Masak?

All in .. all in .. the food served are very high in quality *except for the 'terlebih masin' insiden. Hope the Tukang Masak will rectify this problem later. 

Harga yang kami bayar untuk Seekor Ikan Siakap (Besar) dimasak Tiga Rasa dan Stim Limau, sekeping Ikan Pari Bakar (Besar), Dua ekor sotong (Besar), Sayur Campur (untuk 2 orang) dan Satu jug Air Tembikai (untuk 4 orang) adalah RM95.40 sahaja. For me, RM95.40 untuk 4 orang adalah sangat berpatutan, kan.

Note to those who want to dine at Aroma Ikan Bakar ~ Please be early. Seawal pukul 5.30 petang restoran dah penuh dengan pengunjung-pengunjung. Datang awal untuk mengelakkan kesulitan dan ketidak selesaan, OK. Kemudahan tandas dan surau ada, jangan risau.

Lepas makan *we took early dinner* kita jalan-jalan. Pantai Remis sekarang dah tak macam dulu. People threw rubbish everywhere. Hello rakyat Malaysia, lepas minum, sila buang bekas minuman ke dalam Tong sampah .. jangan tinggalkan atas batu. Hummm .. sedih lah.

The other reason why we were here was because I want to watch the sunset. Masih cantik seperti dulu sayang nya tiada lagi bunyi ombak yang mendamaikan hati. I used to come to this place to enjoy the sound of the waves with my family since 10 years ago. Bila hati gundah, Misz-ella cari pantai. Leka melayan bunyi semulajadi ombak, hati rasa sangat tenang dan damai. No more. Betul kata orang .. Sedangkan pantai lagi berubah ... cinta Misz-ella pada Pantai yang tetap ada sampai bila-bila *ohh sedih*

No matter what, I appreciate the time spent with 'kesayangan'. Thanks Allah for the time, for the good health and for giving me a piece of good heart. I am blessed with every breath. Alhamdulillah.
