Setia Alam Pasar Malam (Night Market)

Located at Setia Alam every Saturday evening from 6pm till 11pm. It is claimed to be the longest pasar malam in Msia! You will find yourself spoiled with various choices of food from one end to another end of the night market, making you feel indecisive of what to eat. So much of food to choose from yet so little space in that small tummy of yours. Seriously, I've never seen any of the specialties selling in SS2 Pasar Malam. When you think SS2/Taman Connaught (Cheras) Pasar Malam is good, now this is even better. According to my sister, some of the stalls here are those from Taman Chi Liung Pasar Malam (Klang) Pasar Malam every Wednesday evening.

You can find practically everything there, ranging from food, drinks, clothes, footwear, household items, fresh seafood, vegetables and fruits.

#The one and only stall that sell Sikh delicacies! I tried their samosa (: 

#2. 5 different flavours of  Mook's Pizza, price range starting from RM6. 

#3. Chee cheong fun that is stuffed with dried shrimps and salted turnips YUMS

#4. Full house at the Asam Laksa stall

#5 Fried cempedak 

#6. Another Asam Laksa and Pan Mee stall

#7. Fried Kuey Tiao Mee 

#8. RM2 for a cup of herbal soup with pork meat balls, heard it's good (: 

#9. BBQ Chicken

#10. Another stall selling pan mee but I believe this one is the best. 
Why? Cause....

#11. Look at the amount of people queueing! & it's only 6pm :O They have tables for  customers who opt to eat right away instead of takeaway and guess what all the tables are occupied as well. Super good business!  

#12. Spotted cute angry birds lantern hanging! Should get one since mooncake festival is just around the corner :P 

#13. Penang Prawn Mee, Curry Mee and Herbal Chicken Noodle Soup 

#14. Wonder Food Pancake, they even have pancake with durian cream!

#15. Master Bean that is featured in Ho Chak, one of the specialties is  combo taufufa with lychee on top! I should have tried :S

#16 Uncle Lim Pulau Ketam Fried Lala! Featured in Ho Chak and 我爱Pasar Malam. 

#17. I guess he is Uncle Lim but isn't he a tad too young to be call uncle? O_O Anyways, I get to see Uncle Lim in action! 

Oh, and there's stinky tofu too and man it smells so bad, I can even smell it miles away! Overall, it was definitely a pound-gaining experience, too bad I can't try all the specialties in one night. Totally worth another visit! Now who's with me?

Having healthy and silky smooth hair-free skin all the time is one of the ultimate desires of every young woman. We would all love to put on pretty dresses, shorts and mini skirts without feeling ashamed of flaunting our legs. But sadly, we are often faced with the same fiasco: hair on our legs(!) or sometimes having sudden realization that in fact we have stubbly legs and fuzzy bikini line.

Hair removal is undoubtedly a necessity to attain beautiful skin that glows all over yet fret not, cause it’s not about high maintenance; it’s about quick beauty fixes that help you stay beautiful at all times of the day.

Bee Bee Nail

Every girl loves to be pampered and treated like a princess, no? The closest thing I could relate to would be manicure and pedicure sesh. Besides being pampered, you get to have pretty looking nails as well, win win situation! All thanks to @IlovediscountMY, I got the opportunity to try out manicure and stamping nail art yesterday! I was really excited as I heard quite a number of good reviews from people regarding the services provided by Bee Bee Nail.

I made my appointment earlier this week, there are kind enough to remind me that I shall not be late more than 15 minutes from the appointed time or else the reservation will be canceled. Joeann drove all the way downtown and we managed to made our way to Bee Bee Nail @ Fahrenheit 88 on time. Once we arrived, we were greeted by a friendly receptionist at the bright yellow counter.

Welcome to Bee Bee Nail! 
The place is actually quite small but I love the cosy and comfortable ambiance. Decorated with bright colour striped wallpaper, everything looks very organised and clean. Spot the cute IKEA green stools!

We were asked to be seated right away, minutes later tea and peanuts was served! How nice (:

Then I was asked to choose the nail colour, there were so many choices from different brands (OPI, Essie, Nubar) to choose from which actually makes it even harder to choose. They even have the latest OPI Shatters colours!!

Sample of the tons of stamping nail arts to choose from; flowers, heart shape, leopard print & many more. 

The pampering sesh begins with basic manicure! :D My friendly manicurist of the day was Baby from BMIC Nail Spa Salon. She was nice enough to explain everything to me. Basic manicure includes;

#1. Nail shape filing; to shape the nails according to the preference.

#2. Then she sprayed cuticle softener on my nails before pushing out dead cuticle and skin from my nails. 

#3. Cutting off dead cuticle with a cuticle nipper. 

#4. Smooth the surface of my nails with a nail buffer. 

#5. Lastly, applying cuticle oil to moisture the cuticle and reduce the growth of cuticle.

The tools used are all sterilized beforehand with surgical spray for hygienic purpose.

When the basic manicure was done, I was given a good hand massage with OPI AVO juice. It was so relaxed that I almost fell asleep. I chose Mango and it has this really sweet smell. Ginger Lily actually smells quite nice too (:

Now, my cute tiny nails are ready for nail polish sesh!
#1. Started off with OPI base coat to protect the nails. 

#2. Next applying two layers of the nail colour that I chose, glittery dark pink.  

#3. Then a layer of Blue OPI Shatter at every corner of my nails, the effect was visible within seconds! 

#4. Then finally, a stroke of white nail polish to finish it up. 

My nails are almost done, coming to the final part; stamping nail art. This is my first time being exposed to stamping nail art and I seriously have no idea how it works at first.
First, she applied a layer special nail polish on the metal plate with stamp arts on it. Then she used a scrapper to scrap out the excess nail polish and use a rubber stamp to stamp on the nail art and there you go, the flower on the rubber stamp.
P/S: Even for the special nail polish, there are a few colours to choose from (:
Voila, I can have a flower nail art on my nail!

After the nail stamping, a layer of OPI top coat was applied to ensure the nail colour and nail stamp art lasts longer.

My hands are placed under this dryer to totally dry up the top coat so that the colour and nail art will not smudge.

These are the products I used for my nail colour, design and nail art.
Above: OPI base coat, OPI top coat, OPI Colour to Diner for, Blue OPI Shatter and white nail polish.
Below: Konad Special Set.

It was overall a pleasant experience with Bee Bee Nail, it'd be even perfect if I get to have pedicure done as well :P I would give double thumbs up for their super friendly and excellent service. I would highly recommend this place! Do stay tuned for @IlovediscountMY's website for this fantabulous manicure and stamping nail art promo that's coming soon! You won't wanna miss this awesome chance to beautify and dress up your nails :D
