Celcom Cupcake Challenge Finale

So what have you guys been up to this weekend?

Remember the Celcom Cupcake Challenge workshop that I attended earlier this month where I get to bake cupcakes and decorate them? Well this time round, I get to attend the Celcom Cupcake Challenge Finale at Publika yesterday to witness the battle among 55 finalists that have been short listed based on the highest number of likes on the photo of their cupcakes that they had submitted on The Celcom Cupcake Challenge FB page. I was quite surprised that a most of the participants are youngsters and there is also quite a number of guy participants.
The exact venue of the challenge was located at the Boulevard @ Publika, just in front of the Celcom Blue Cube. 

Some of the fellow contestants, seated after the registration. 

The media pass. 

This is how the workstation looks like, a counter is allocated for each participant. The participants will have to bring their own baking tools and decoration materials. 
Besides the challenge, public will also have the opportunity to have some fun and decorate their own cupcakes at this booth.
Adorable kids having fun with their hands-on session (: 

There's also 1000 free cupcakes giveaway to the public as well!
As you can see the rows and rows of cupcakes nicely arranged at the counter. 
1Msia sweet treat for everyone :9

Before the challenge started, the participants are being briefed with the rules and regulations.

Razif Hashim was the emcee of the day, yes he's the guy from Gol and Gincu! :D
The participants are then asked to go to their counter and get ready minutes before the ultimate challenge officially starts. 
The participants are given an hour to decorate only one cupcake, it wasn't easy I must say. There are so many things that need to be done! I can see some of them are quite nervous with their shaky hands and trying to have it done on time despite being all focused. 

The youngest participant of the cupcake challenge, how cute! 
The one and only Barbie cupcake! Pretty unique right?  
Few of my personal favourite cupcakes of the day that made it to the Top10 as well, the effort and creativity that they have is really impressive. I was pretty much wow-ed by all these masterpieces! Don't you think so too?
So of course, we have a panel of jugdes for the challenge comprises of three celebrity chefs namely (From R-L) Chef Rose Weiss, Chef Sherson Lian, and Chef Dato Fazley Yaakob.

The judges were going around to judge the 55 different cupcakes at the counter based on their creativity, uniqueness, best decoration and similarity to the submitted photos.  

While waiting for the result, we were entertained with an adrenaline pumping dance performance by the Elecoldxhot Junior.  

Next up, it was Dato Fazley Yaakob who serenaded the audience with his latest single accompanied by the dancers in chef outfits. 

I bet most of the audience are swooned by his charming smile :3

It was a neck and neck competition that the judges had to called up the Top 10 finalists and interviewed them about the meaning behind their cupcake design. 

After much deliberation, they finally have a result! The moment you all have been waiting for... someone will be walking home with RM10,000 and a Samsung Galaxy S3!

The 52 finalists will be rewarded with a LG Prada mobile phone each, while the top three winners will win cash prizes and a Samsung Galaxy S3 each.

Drum rolls please...
2nd Runner Up goes to Mac Leong

1st Runner Up goes to Juneci Siong who walks away with RM5,0000! 

And the ultimate winner of The Celcom Cupcake Challenge goes to Chef Vincent Liew

Congratulations to the Top 3 winners and a big round of applause to all of the finalists *claps*

Not forgetting, a group photo of all the finalists who have attended The Celcom Cupcake Challenge with the jugdes and the representative from Celcom who had made the event a great success. 

I now present you, the winning cupcake! :D
After the prize giving ceremony, we were informed that there will be another cupcake event due to the overwhelming response! Stay tuned on their Facebook page because they will be announcing the next 55 finalists and more details about the next challenge! Once again, thank you Celcom for such a fun event that unite everyone together to celebrate the independence of our country.

Glam Up with GlamTags!

First and foremost,much thanks to those who wished me in my previous post :D and I would apologize  for the lack of updates cause I've been busy with uni and birthday celebrations for these two weeks. Plus, my internet connection has been nothing great but crappy T__T

Well, back to the main point. I've been anticipating for this one particular package since earlier this month and it arrived around the second week of September. Oh the excitement! & yes you could have guess it's from GlamTags. Just so you know, GlamTags is a blogshop that provide top-quality, unique and beautiful hand-crafted personalized name accessories. All accessories are custom made-to-order and delivered straight to your home!
The happy me can't wait to open the package! :D 
I've always wanted a personalized name necklace since last year, so this year for my birthday, I decided to get one for myself. Little did I know that the boyf actually planned to get one for me since I've been talking about it for all the time HAHA but the genius in me ruined the surprise :P So now I know why he has been stopping me all this while when I told him I wanted to get one for myself.
I've always love receiving packages with a Thank You note with a simple message written on it like this,  sweet isn't it? Appreciate the extra effort GlamTags put in for their customers. 

Everything is nicely package and sealed (Y) 

Besides the necklace, they even gave me polishing cloth as well as cash voucher worth RM5 (:

Again, the necklace is nicely wrapped with double layer of bubble wrap and sealed in a plastic seal pouch. Double thumbs up for their special safety packaging!  

Tadaaaaaa! My very own personalized necklace (ʃƪ´⌣`)♥  
[Recycled image from my twitter
GlamTags actually came up with a new range of necklace; premium range which is of course of better quality from the sound of it. The necklaces are of European export standards which are made of 100% Genuine 925 Silver with 18K Yellow Gold , 18K White Gold and 18K Rose Gold plating respectively. I chose 18K White Gold Plating and added a small heartshape icon. All thanks to Hweii Chiee and GlamTags, I managed to get the premium range necklace for only a fraction of the actual price! :D

You can customize your own necklace by adding icons, borders, heart crystal or circle czech crystal. You can even add the extra length of the chain, adding additional cute icons to your necklace clasp and choose the type of special chain designs. More details HERE and HERE. They have more choices of fonts, icons and borders now compared to the time when I placed my order. Spotted a Hello Kitty border somemore, so cute! 
Besides premium range, their classic range is still available as well. If you are searching for something more affordable, you can check it out HERE

Besides personalized name necklaces, GlamTags also sell personalized name accessories that comes in bangles, bracelets, handphone charms, tags, block as well as rings!

They also sell infinity rings :D 

When I first started using it, I got a few compliments from my friends and even strangers noticed it *blush* Some of them did ask where did I get it from! Now people don't have to ask for my name, it's clearly seen on my neck LOL I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and it's still in great quality and it's doesn't rust even when I wore it in sweat. I was never the type of person who wore necklace but now that I have it, I wore it most of the time cause I like how simple yet classy it is. Not to say it's suitable for any style or occasions.  Somehow it's still  a trend that has yet to die, I still see Rachel Berry wears it in the new season of Glee! I would say I'm super satisfied with the quality of the necklace, definitely a good buy that I didn't regret spending on it. 

If you're thinking hard of what to get for your girlfriend/boyfriend/friend/siblings for their birthday or any special occasion, you should consider GlamTags as they provide the best service in mailing and gift wrapping as well as card direct to the recipient too. Sounds like a pretty good surprise too eh? :P

Cellnique Aqualance24 Therapy

Finally an update after a hectic week preparing for my uni event! :D

I guess I've reached the age where I need to have a good skincare regime to maintain my youthful glow and my skin condition. I sound like an old soul T__T Besides daily skin care regime that is a vital component to beautiful skin, the regular facial treatment (recommended at least once a month) is important as well for maintenance. We all know that facial treatments are essential for thorough cleansing of the skin. Frankly speaking, the most I do in my daily skin care regime is just cleansing, if I'm feeling lazy, I'll put on toner and moisturizer before I sleep. Since I'm a student, I couldn't afford going to facial treatment on a monthly basis as well.  Yet may thanks to Cellnique for giving me an opportunity to try out their facial treatment.
My bare face - I don't think that my face condition is terrible but I do envy those with fair and smooth skin.
My flaws are hardly visible but I do have sensitive and dehydrated skin. 
So I made an appointment at First Image, Beauty & Body Concepts at Amcorp Mall since it's the nearest to my place. I was greeted by Jenny, the beautician that helped me out throughout my facial session. She was too shy to have her photo taken, sorry to disappoint you in case you're expecting a photo of her :P

So as usual, I was asked to filled up a form first before proceeding to the treatment.
Like I said earlier, I have sensitive skin, and I do have freckles as well but my main concern would be my dehydrated skin.
Before I had my skin condition examined by Jenny, I had my face double cleansed with a normal facial cleanser and milk cleanser respectively. She then suggested me to try out the Aqualance24 Therapy which is a deep hydration treatment as she thinks that it is the most suitable treatment to treat my dehydrated and sensitive skin. 
So basically, incorporated in Aqualance24 Therapy is a 3-dimensional bio-intelligent hydration system that helps replenish moisture, reinforce skin moisture-retaining barrier and encourage hydrous flow balance for perfect hydration state. Unique ingredients, Resveratrol and Carnosine HCL, work to restore skin tone. The skin is radiance, plumped and fully hydrated after the therapy.

Treatment Features:
• A high-performance treatment for dry & dehydrated skin which reinforces skin architecture to provide a complete and thorough solution for skin hydration.
• All new triple-action bio-intelligent hydration system – Aqualance 24, which leaves both inner and superficial skin layers adequately hydrated.

  1. Replenishes. Low molecular Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen-Hyal replenishes essential moisture to skin and manages skin hydrous balance. 4 types of algae extracts and caviar extract deeply nourish and moisturize the skin, while Marine Moistpatch then diffuses essential moisture continuously for lasting hydration and also limits transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
  2. Rebalances. Osmoprotectant helps regulates osmotic pressure between cells and their environment and encourage hydrous flow balance to help maintain optimum cellular water/cell volume. Ensures aquahomeostasis of the skin cells and progressively rehydrates the different layer of the skin. It restores skin’s youthful plumpness where fullness has been lost.
  3. Retains. An advanced lipid filling complex (ceramide complex) fills in the gaps, improving the skin’s hydrolipidic film, which acts as protective barrier to surround the newly added moisture so skin can hold and retain the moisture in the hydrous reservoir for lasting moisturization, while protecting skin from external aggressors.

• Resveratrol rejuvenates and revives skin healthy glow, while providing non-surgical microlifting effect. Whilst Carnosine HCL helps prevent glycation-induced skin damage. The unique formulation of Aqualance24 masque helps restores the skin with deep relaxation.
My cosy and comfortable treatment room. 

The whole treatment was like any other treatment procedures involving exfoliation using a scrub that smells like pineapple (love it!), I didn't have the steaming part, instead I had cotton pads soaked with essence nicely applied on my face before extraction; the part I dreaded the most T__T die die also must bear the pain while trying hard not to make any noise. I keep telling myself, no pain no gain. She told me my face had no acne but just a couple of blackheads and whiteheads, pheww so it's not that bad right? Then, she proceeded with the Aqualance24 therapy where she applied ultrasound (so cooling and relaxing cause it was cold) and double masks application where I managed to snooze for a while. I wonder if I snore HEH Plus, she gave me a real good neck and back massage that makes my pampering session even more enjoyable. We chatted throughout the facial session and she was kind enough to clear my doubts and gave me useful advice and tips on how to take care of my skin so I'm glad it wasn't an awkward session.
Oh, she even helped me to trimmed my brows as well (: 

The box that contains products of Aqualance24 therapy attached with it is a list of detailed explanation and ingredients of each different product. 

These are the products used during the Aqualance24 therapy that comes in 4 different ones namely the Aqualance24 Concentrate, Aqualance24 Masque, D’sensi Calming & Hydrating Complex and also Aqualance24 Essence Masque. One box of this set is sufficient for 5 facial treatment sessions.

Before I leave, Jenny gave me a few sample sized products to try out. How nice!
Intensive hydrating complex gel and sunblock, they 
work pretty good on my skin and I'm still using it :D
After the facial treatment session, I feel very much refreshed and clean. Off with the blackheads and whiteheads YAY and my skin is more hydrated and supple. After a week of the treatment, I'm so glad to see that there's improvement in my skin condition. Definitely better before I had the treatment. I no longer have flaky skin and as you can see the redness reduces, and I can feel that my face is smoother now, especially when I am cleansing it. I reckon Aqualance24 therapy is really worth trying (based on what I've experienced) if you have dehydrated skin, I am very much tempted to visit them again to have my second session. 
Once again, thanks Cellnique
