It’s Sunday again and I usually spend my time eating away if I’m not working or at the gym!
I am generally a person who picks vegetables, fruits and cakes as snacks whenever I could, which means I chow vegetables like I own it all whenever I could. Yet during office time, I TRY to snack healthier like yogurt bar, yogurt, fruits and well! CORN!
As you all know I have psoriasis problem which makes my food group really limited, so I have always been frequenting Daily Fresh next to my office for some corn in the cup at times. Not until I was so lucky to be invited to Daily Fresh Food Review.
How could you not know about Daily Fresh? They are established since 1997 and famous for their corn in cup and later on the extensions to more snacks! Let me share the 5 items I’ve discovered!
1. Gelato Tempo
(So Sorry, the outlet in R&R Sg. Buloh is slightly warm. Hence, the gelato melted pretty fast upon served)
I’m a Gelato lover! My record in Italy was 4 Gelatos a day for an amazing 10 days in my trip over Italy. (Thank GOD my stomach was great and never had any misfortune happened throughout the trip!) So having more Gelato is of course a blessing to me especially during the hot weather. Daily Fresh brought the recipe from Italy to allow all their consumers to taste real Italian Gelato without the need to travel to Italy! What’s best is there’s a promotion during Ramadhan month! Gelato Tempo is selling at RM 4.90 with FREE TOPPINGS between 27 June 2014 – 4 August 2014!
Hurry and don’t miss it!
Daily Fresh Gelato Tempo without Toppings – RM 5.90
Gelato Tempo with Toppings – RM 6.90
Black Sesame,Green Tea, Chocolate, Mango, Strawberry, Honeydew, Yogurt original, Yogurt Strawberry, Yogurt Mango.
Baby too wants some IceKimo!
IceKimo is a choice if you prefer non-dairy flavored cold snacks. They are made out of fresh fruits and ultra smooth, finely shaved ice that refreshes your tongue and sense. I find it pretty sweet with the toppings, so try to mix it up with the ice underneath too and they’ll taste just right!
Daily Fresh IceKimo – RM 4.20
Fruits Series: Mango, , Pineapple, Soursop, Strawberry and Honeydew.
Other Series: Chocolate, Mocha, Vanilla
Cupcorn in variety flavours. (Clockwise Sequencing): Flaky Chilli, Garlic Cheese, Mayonnaise and Original
A Daily Fresh scooping out fresh corns for us! The one in Sg Buloh R&R are friendly with a smile on them all times too (Kid you not)
Cupcorn is no doubt Daily Fresh’s iconic product. Daily Fresh’s corn are grown by it’s sister company Mah Yong in Johor before being processed into the fresh corns for consumers by using Whole Kernel “Non-Cut” technique to ensure freshness, hygiene. Daily Fresh’s corn promises users corns free of colouring and preservatives, synthetic chemicals; most importantly the golden coloured and sweet juiciness of each corn kernel are retained.
I have always been loving the original flavour. However, I tried all the flavours and even invented my new love:
Flaky Chilli + Garlic Cheese = Less spicy as the cheesy flavour neutralizes the spicy flavour and it became much more bearable!
NOTE: The Flaky Chilli is indeed QUITE SPICY. Try it and tell me what you think.
Daily Fresh Original Cupcorn – RM3.50
Daily Fresh Flavoured Cupcorn – RM4.00
Flaky Chilli, Garlic Cheese, Mayonnaise, Condensed Milk and Original is priced at RM3.50
Wondering what’s the difference of it with other waffles? Wafito is a Premium Waffle who got its name from WAffle, FIlling, TOpping. It’s a result of flavoured waffle with fillings. You heard it right! The bite of the waffle itself is already tasty and best of all, it comes with a variety of yummy flavours too! The unique flavours are a must tried especially the Chicken Floss and Coco Deluxe (Highly recommended by Jingy)
Daily Fresh WAFITO Classic – RM3.50
Daily Fresh WAFITO Premium – RM4.50
WAFITO Classic: Margarine, Blueberry, Strawberry, Kaya, Peanut Butter and Chocolate. (You get to mix any of the 2 flavours)
WAFITO Premium: Chicken Floss, Coco Deluxe, Pandan Kaya, Japanese BBQ and Nyonya Kaya.
5. Secret Pop (PopCorn)
These are premium “MUSHROOM POPCORNS” that you won’t find it in cinemas outlets, at least not with the affordable price.
Secret Pops kernels are imported from Indiana, US (yup! not locally) which guarantees bigger and crunchier corn snack. Comes in 5 yummy flavours and we guarantee you’ll love the texture as much as the price!
Daily Fresh “Secret Pop” Popcorn – RM6.90 – RM7.90

If you have been wondering what are the ugly lesions on my skin especially around my leg areas but feel very offended to ask me then you should read this!
If you think I’m an unhygienic female who doesn’t take care or bother to shave/remove/wax my feet then you should read this TOO!
If you have any skin related diseases then you should be reading this to know what have I gone through and how t may or may not help you.
How it started?
I have been diagnosed with Psoriasis at the age of 19. It became very bad to the extend skin were peeling off and a light touch using a pin could poked into my skin.
Out of desperation, my parents had been searching for the miracle doctor to heal me. I quit university for 1 1/2 years out of desperation, I was afraid of the sun, the sight of it and skin were flaking off everywhere I go. I cried for the longest time. Dad would paid hundreds to thousands every time I see the doctor and mom would bring me to every place recommended by people.
How I discovered Psoriasis?
I was 19, like any ordinary college student. I had a fever one fine day with some rashes on my neck, dad thought it was fine and sent me back to my dormitory (I was in a semi government university)
It became itchy and unbearable. I complaint but doctors said it was just allergy. I had my prescriptions and continued the day.
It became worse when it got to my arms and my waist and some on my neck, mom sought for grandma’s expertise. Soon a prediction that it was shingles, I was brought to traditional Shingles Sinseh somewhere in Kepong. Before we know what’s those weird rashes, the Sinseh rejected me with the reason it’s not shingles.
Dr. Stephen Chow of Pantai Medical confirmed to my parents that I have Psoriasis and it’s a type of genetic sickness.
My encounters with Doctors
Dr. Stephen Chow
I had a steroid jab by Dr. Stephen Chow and tar ointment and steroid prescriptions were given to me. The first 7 – 10 days were great. Until then, more pop up and we visited Dr. Stephen again, he suggested heavier medication which we took and the cycle basically repeats and the psoriasis rashes were conquering most parts of my body. — I cried every day. I do not heard of him till I saw his obituary one fine day the last few years.
Dr. Ting of Puchong
He a younger chap who looks darn serious. Gave me an unknown and unnamed jab. Same method as the previous doctor. After 2 visits, I… never see him again.
Dr. Ting of Kuala Lumpur
This is the most horrifying doctor experience I had. Upon the first consultation, he says my condition is Very Bad and MUST treat with the usage of immunosuppressant, methotrexate immediately. He said with 1 jab I can clear my skin well and have the medicines but I will need to check my liver half a year once.
After the previous 2 doctors, I believe I had enough. I rejected him and said I shall have the medication only. I never go back there again…
Young nice chap (off 30s I believe back then?) was my family doctor in Sungai Buloh. I showed him the methotrexate medication.
Dr.Jay: This medicine could only help stop your condition temporarily. It will further damage your liver… And you’re only 19 years old.
Me: I’m sad and I’m helpless yet I can’t afford to continue this torture (psoriasis)
Dr.Jay: You have a long way to go young lady. I would say do some read ups on Ayurvedic and research. It might help with reducing them.
Believe it or not, I visited him for sickness till he got transferred out of my home area.
Dr. Ranjit of Subang
Another one that uses the same helpless method. – End of Story -
I stopped all smelly cream and used only topical creams at this period. Mom cried occasionally when she sees me in pain and couldn’t sleep well. My skin were flaking off badly, I left trails of dried skin around. Kakak was cleaning my room and house more times than ever daily and helped with the boiling of Chinese herbs, 金银花 for my bath so to soften the skin and allowed them to peel in the tub. My daily live was miserable, at times, I couldn’t bend my arms up as it was so bad it harden up — I cried, mom cried, everyone loves me was saddened by my condition.
Professor Roy in National University Hospital
He’s a great guy. He only prescribed antibiotics and aquos cream. He strongly against all the strange and powerful drugs such as steroids, anti immune suppressant and even tar creams ( I believe tar creams are the same as those used to build tar roads, why the fuck would we believe it’ll heal us and put on ourselves? Right?)
We seen him about 2-3 times? Barely remember but he’s the best one I ever seen.
Also, I visited KLGH for aquos cream after I found out they prescribed the same things as Professor Roy for a small fee. Generally really professionally doctors but overcrowded and under appreciated due to all this unscrupulous docs who insist on fast results for patients.
We had seen and tried many Traditional Chinese Medicines, Ayurvedic and you name it I most likely have tried it. Hahaha..
Finally, Mom and I did many research, so we decided to take up advises from this and that and so and so and put me on a strict diet and lifestyle change
1) Chicken (I only indulge on kampung chicken once in a while — mom put on a strict QC before purchasing so I predicted my mom knows the chicken’s Date of Birth too)
2) Beef – unknown but the Ayurvedic and Sinsehs I’ve seen believed in taking it off diet
3) Nuts free diet
4) I sleep before 11pm: apparently good for the liver and the liver helps clear toxins and waste from body
5) vege vege and many of them
6) only sea salt or minimal sugar for my foods’ flavoring – no complaints
7) Alcohol Free Diet
8) Fast Food free
9) Seafood is OUT of your diet
10) Fishes are allowed but avoid such as Kembung, salted fish etc. I love SALMON and it became a staple diet =p
11) LOTS of WATER
Judging by the list you might asked how I lived… But I get through it and my skin was back to the most perfect condition with a combination of Chinese medication I was on.
So if you still think that judging my physical appearance is who I am.. Think again! I take care of myself better than most people. If conditions were allowed, I would not left myself to be judged by publics’ eyes to conform to their ideal of BEAUTY.
I do not have photos from the worst time. My second post will be up very soon to further jotting down my 2nd war against psoriasis.
Here are some of my photos recently
This was taken in April, if you can see.. they are pretty reddish even from far!
Due to my psoriasis lesions, I can’t shave or use Veet (Taken: 2nd Week of June 2014)
Partial healed lesion (You can see the white patches and skin discolorant) (Taken: 2nd Week of June 2014)
Psoriasis usually heals from within, the middle to outer parts (Taken: 2nd Week of June 2014)
This is the longest and MOST stubborn psoriasis I ever had. It has never left even I was completely healed back then until today. (Taken: 2nd Week of June 2014)
I’m currently seeing Dr Nick from ONEOsteo since last November. My flares started again on September 2013. You will definitely want to see my latest photos which will be out next week!
P/S: I’m not a doctor nor medical practitioner, the above comments are my two cents and experiences I would like to share to everyone. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions cause I definitely did not jot down every single details here, but I would be willing to exchange information with everyone!
TUNE Hotel KLIA 2 has opened its doors to dear guest from around the world. Spinzer has been the few lucky ones to be invited and I get to tag along to experience it!
A snippet of how the new Tune Hotel look like
Tune Hotel certainly entertain their guest so well, They had many activities including human bingo, face painting and artists to entertain us such as Eugene See, Elizabeth Tan and Melissa Indot. As much as I want to enjoy the songs, I got so carried away to complete my human bingo >> I attempted to complete it ALL not knowing I was required to complete only a line (Emceeee, can you please announce it clearly next time?)
It was pretty fun for the human bingo game, I found out that Jocelyn who invited us could flipped her eyelids inside out, Miao could burp spontaneously and Melissa Indot actually showed me her piercings collections (she has a super bling piercing stud on on her belly ;p)
Elizabeth Tan with her songs. She has a really amazing voice! Listen to her here
Here’s to the crowd entertainer, who even danced with the crowd She’s very friendly and if you ever bumped into her, do approach her with a Hi!
Face Painting anyone? I took a design with shiny blue hues. A photo of me and my favourite Meow Meow!
Spinzer with Miao!
My Dance Partner of the night >> The Owl of TripAdvisor!
#Wefie of the night
I really appreciate the party thrown by Tune Hotel. It unites many bloggers through this party, we catch up, eat and even danced together! (Another wefie =p)
After all the food and special cocktails catered for the night, it’s some time to dance it all out to the beat of DJ Faith.
Enough of my party bragging. Let’s focus on the different experience you will find in Tune Hotel, KLIA2
The hotel is interconnected to airport and it takes 3.5 minutes of walking to reach the airport.
There’s a skybridge linking to the hotel and airport DIRECTLY now.
Rain or Shine, you be sure you are well protected from the harsh weather.
Tune Hotel of KLIA 2 is definitely a break away from the norm of Tune Hotels you know, I know or we all know. This one has a bar for guests to hang out and have a malt drink or two. #RoomerHasIt drinks connect people.
A drink perhaps?
Guests gets to fill their stomachs with yummy bakes
The bar is also a great place for you to meet some new friends
Tune Hotel KLIA 2 is an all inclusive hotel where you just need to pay the price you see for the full package. (Full package comes with air con, ceiling fan, TV and selected Astro Channels, Towel and toiletries.) — Thanks Tune Hotel Staff for the information.
A double bed from the view upon opening the door.
Desk & Chair with table lamp for guests’ usage. There’s even proper hanging area for guests to hang their used towels or clothes and of course a hair dryer readily available in the bathroom.
Wise word from Jingy: Hang your towels to be reused to help reduce waste on mother earth
A safe for guests to lock up valuables. I believe this is available in all Tune Hotels too
A big chill out lounge area for guests to curl up for a book or to get yourself some warm sunlight of Malaysia
The view from our room on the party night
The view from our room in the morning. The building is pretty roomy and airy as it complies to Green Building rules and regulations too
This hotel has 2 flight check-in machines where you could easily access to it and skip the queue at the airport! Brilliant for guests.
Miss Jingy at your service!
It was generally a good experience. I love the fact that it’s interconnected to the airport and we all had our breakfast at the airport before bidding farewell! Bye Tune Hotel of KLIA2, you are certainly a recommended choice for budget travellers and also flight interchange guests.
So you know how we bloggers always think about how we should restyle our blogs to give it a fresh look? I mean, it’s always the same ol’ header, sidebars, columns etc etc. I added a few stuff like my cartoon figurine at the top (soon to be joined by my blogger-partner Jingy Veronique the Mermaid!) but essentially, they are all still the same!
But hey, suddenly A Cut Above (you know that popular professional salon founded by Datin Winnie Loo? ) came up with something pretty nifty: the #BloggeRestyle movement, where they aim to empower Malaysia’s blogger community by giving the bloggers themselves a good restyling session. I immediately said, I NEED THAT! What can you expect from a person who’s pretty much had the same hairstyle all his life?
And so I made my appointment and searched for the all new Restyle+ outlet at the all new Nu Sentral located at KL Sentral. For your information, Restyle+ is a little different from A Cut Above, where they target young folks who are looking for a totally refreshing hairstyle, and also different from Restyle (without the PLUS!) in a sense that they only provide organic solutions, thanks to their partnership with AVEDA!
Of course being the social entrepreneur I am, when I find out that not only are their treatments, hair colours etc are almost fully organic but that they also save the environment in more ways than one, I told myself this is the place to go. Heck, it’s definitely going to be better for my own scalp and hair too right?! Saving the world and the people, that’s the way to go
Oh did I mention that their hair colour products are also not so damaging to your hair? Viva la Aveda for their vision to connect beauty, environment and well-being & of course Restyle+ for their professionalism & amazingly talented hairstylists :D
Now check out how my hair transformed, and it’s only halfway in the process yo! haha. Check out the picture below for a larger version. DAMN COOL RIGHT!
Oh by the way, at Restyle+ relaxation and replenishment is the main focus of their service which is really good for those who have frequently stress-filled days. So can you imagine how I felt when they served their lovely Aveda tea on top of the extremely relaxing massage both on your hands and scalp whilst getting your hair washed? Perfection…
Basically how it works is that all Restyle+ customers will engage in a signature Aveda Ritual of Renewal, which may include: The Tea Ritual, a cup of comforting tea upon arrival; The Stress-Relieving Hand Ritual, a complimentary hand massage incorporating the senses soothing AvedaStress-Fix™ Body Lotion; the Stress-Relieving Neck and Shoulders Ritual, a 3-5 minute tension-taming massage of the neck and shoulders using Aveda Stress-Fix™ Body Lotion; and The Aroma Sensory Journey, a guided tour of scent, sensuality and memory, to help us discover the Aveda aroma that truly worked their wonders with me. I wonder how it’ll go with you?
Finally after a senior stylist hair cut, 3 hours of light bleaching for a full colour and Ash highlights and a full Invati treatment, this is the new empowered me. I actually look a lot thinner with this new… ME! For my hair length, the cut was about RM55, and the colouring ranged at RM180. The full Invati signature treatment which reduced itchiness in my scalp and for a healthier hair costed RM230, which is amazing considering all the stuff they did on me.
And that pretty much sums my experience at the all new Restyle+ outlet in partnership with AVEDA! Try it out, and if you’d like some discount to have your first try, give me a tweet at @spinzer and I’ll hook you up Restyle+ services include cuts, color, men’s grooming and specialized treatments to condition hair, improve scalp health and texture treatments, so I think there’s pretty much something for any of you readers
Are you now thinking of RESTYLE-ing your hair too?

It is indeed an amazing experience for our team to be in the finals for Thomas Cup 2014!
Team Malaysia will be against Japan at the finals today at 5.30pm and here’s how you all can show your support and send your wishes/prayer/hopes/dreams to our players in New Delhi, India!!!
Choice No. 1 – Mamak Stalls
Bring RM5 and head to your favourite mamak for a glass of Teh O’ Ais and have a roti canai while watching the match. Be sure to book your place as early 5pm. Mamak nowadays come with big TV Screens and some even allow you to have good shisha :) We are sure it’ll be full even by then!
Let me list down the few places you can’t miss out
1) Safiz Corner, Sri Hartamas
2) Al – Safa, Bandar Utama (generally all Al – Safa but I love the one in BU for they have Shisha
3) BRJ, Wangsa Maju
4) Pelita (All Outlets)
5) Nasi Kayu Kandar (All Outlets)
Share with me if you know your neighbourhood has better mamaks with big screens for the match!
Choice No.2 – McDonalds
The BIG M not only provide you an air conditioned area with their burgers and coke. Some even housed McCafe where you can grab a muffin and Latte. This is certainly the best spot if you have to bring your high maintenance partner who refuse to go to a mamak or open air food court to have a good time with your mates. Mcdonald’s provide free WI-FI where you can even share the latest status or your partner could surf and shop online (Talk about watching a match in style yet affordable). Bear in mind that Mcdonald’s no longer provide free soft drinks refills, EACH refill would now cost RM0.50.
Choice No.3 – Open Aired Food Courts
Image Credit: FredismanJournal
If you prefer other food over the match, there’s always open aired food court that provides large TV Screens. Have your favourite Char Koey Teow or Mee Rebus while the Malaysian Team is in action!
My favourite is at Rasta’s. Yours?
Choice No. 4 - Friend’s House (Not yours so you don’t have to clean up :P)
This is my favourite hang out place at a bestie’s house! They are superb jolly and warmth couple! Here’s to my friend’s BUM! hahaha
Pick up your phone now and start gathering mates to either crash at your place for the match or your friend’s place who has the largest screen. As for those who are crashing in your mates’ places. Don’t be a kiam siap okay? Get ready some snack for all! Here are some I recommend =p
3) Pringles Chips
4) Coca Cola
5) Toppo (My recent favourite snack)
6) Hello Panda (nyom nyom nyom)
7) Green Tea
The list goes on and on… feel free to comment and give me ideas (I’m going to snack shopping)
PS – You can now watch it LIVE on these channels:
(Exclusively Free for all Malaysians to watch the match! EVEN NON SUBSCRIBERS! YAY!)
- ASTRO Sports Channel 801 or Channel 829 for HD version
- RTM1 (thanks to Astro)
Choice No.5 – Pubs
Image Credit: AlternativeBerlin
For those who enjoy a malt drink or two (Just like me). Here are a few spots I located that sells cheaper drinks all night long at a flat rate
1) Happer, Damansara Jaya
Anyhow you can always have a cheaper drink at 5.30pm as it’s still in the Happy Hour time range for most pubs
1) Chong Wei Feng has won all his matches in his maiden Thomas Cup Tournament
2) Doubles Tan Boon Heong & Hoon Thien How had beaten the World’s best men’s double pair, Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan over 21-19, 8-21, 23-21
3) Japan China’s Domination of 5 years win at the Thomas Cup. (Surprising eh?)
4) Malaysia has been on a 22 years drought since the last winning in 1992.
Now my friends, LET’S CHEER THEM ON!!!
