ToyTravel is the art of photography where toys imitate life. It's common for social media users to inject creativity and fun into their everyday adventures with a preferred animated object- from a figurine in a bowl of cereal, to a stuffed toy strapped into an airline seat; the possibilities are endless. Now with the Canon EOS M10, they are empowered to share stories of their travels and adventures through high quality photos.

Realash Eyelash Enhancer and Brow

Realash Cosmetics was born in France and their products are available in 35 countries worldwide. If you think this brand is familiar is because I have used Realash before and I am a living example that it truly works!!

Now, they have come up with a whole new Realash range! 

Nicer packaging, attractive products, new web layout design and new and improved formula! This means they have grown so much and have better innovative products =)

Thank you Realash <3

So, what's in a nice packaging?

2 of their bestsellers
-Realash Eyelash Enhancer
-Brow by Realash

Couldn't wait to start using these babies!

Their most renowned product, Realash Eyelash Enhancer is an innovative enhancer dedicated to women who dream about long, strong and full eyelashes. It is especially recommended for lashes which are naturally short, weak or damaged by extensions, inappropriate cosmetics or false lashes. Its mission is to fortify, increase density and lengthen your eyelashes. 

The serum regenerates lashes in a very short time. Its formula has been dermatologically and opthalmologically tested by specialists. Realash will add volume and length to your lashes and enhance their overall appearance so they will look simply gorgeous! 

Previously when I used their eyelash enhancer, it took 3 months for significant results. Now, final results will be visible after 30 days! And you will be able to see first positive changes within 14 days. Your lashes will be stronger, healthier-looking and nourished. After 21 days the results will be even more spectacular! ^_^ Wow, amazing right? I told you, they have much better innovation now hehe

Lash growth phase lasts approx. 30 days. It is too short a time for lashes to become long and thick. Realash advanced formula accelerates natural lash growth and strengthens them at the roots. As a result lashes become long, healthier-looking and conditioned. Realash formula also prevents them from falling out.

Realash formula has undergone rigorous clinical tests which confirmed that the active ingredients of the formula add length, density and help protect lashes from breakage and falling out. To ensure high effectiveness, the enhancer's formula has been enriched with active nanopeptides as well as active aminoacids molecules. It has been dermatologically and opthalmologically tested. No irritations or allergies have been reported. Plant extracts ensure complete safety of use-these ingredients protect, condition and soothe the delicate skin around the eyes.

To make the most of the enhancer use it once a day after removing your makeup for the night.  

Apply the enhancer on the upper eyelid at the roots of your lashes. Application is very easy. The custom-designed applicator brush looks like an eyeliner. It allows very precise application. Just one stroke of the brush is enough to enjoy beautiful lashes!

Thanks to the special formula and easy-to-use applicator brush, the 3 ml serum is enough for 4-5 months treatment. Repeat every night during the course of treatment. 

Visible results can be seen after 30 days. Can't wait to show all of you the results!

Next up, is BROW by Realash

Brow conditioners have become a hit in beauty cosmetics. BROW is an innovative and effective brow conditioner. When well defined, full eyebrows is still in, BROW is the solution you need. Its advanced formula stimulates the natural growth of brows and improves their overall look. With BROW, your eyebrows will become thick, strong and fuller. The final outcome will be beautifully defined brows. Your dream about strong, full and natural brows will become a reality! 

If you have thin, weak and very light brows, BROW is exactly for you. BROW is created for women wishing to have full and defined brows. BROW has undergone rigorous tests which have confirmed that the formula not only stimulates the growth and thickens brows but also improves their overall appearance. 

BROW has been formulated from the highest quality ingredients. The conditioner contains active peptides which condition, strengthen and stimulate hair growth. BROW also contains ginseng extract. Ginseng is called the root of life and eternal youth because it improves blood flow in skin and strengthens hair matrix. The conditioner guarantees effectiveness and safety. The product has been dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. The ingredients of BROW have been carefully selected for you to enjoy perfect, natural eyebrows at any time! 

You can see the results of the treatment sooner than you think. Positive changes can be observed after only 4 weeks. The serum conditions and improves the overall look of brows. Please bear in mind that for best results the conditioner should be used regularly for 8-12 weeks. Natural, beautiful eyebrows in such a short time? With BROW it is possible! The product is dedicated to brow care only.

Remove makeup and make sure your eyebrows are dry and clean.

Then, use BROW once a day, before sleep. Apply the product using the applicator brush provided from the inner to the outer side of brows. The doe eye applicator makes it easy to brush the brows. Just one swipe will do for beautiful brows!

Yay! Thank you Realash for taking care of my eyelashes and brows =)

Iphone SE

I hate big phones and I hate bulky phones.

I lovee small handy phone which I'm able to pocket in my pocket or in my clutch without it jutting out or too big for my hand.

And so, what fits perfectly??

The Iphone SE!!

In rose gold- no less ^_^

I really wanted another phone with the same size as the Iphone 5 (because I love my Iphone 5 so much and really stucked to it even after the screen has broken) and my dream came true with the launch of SE hehe I was actually on the verge of buying an Iphone 5s if I couldn't find a phone of that size anymore.

Since Iphone 6 was bigger in size and Iphone 6 Plus was a giant, I halted buying a new phone for quite some time until I saw the Iphone SE launched and I fell in love <3

After a one day research about the specs and the plan, I decided to buy on the same day without delay. I hesitated awhile because it might have been too rash but I thought, I was desperate for a new phone and just bought it right away.

Besides, I am using 2 phones and with the Samsung S5 already a big phone, I really wanted a smaller handy phone. Iphone SE is really the cheapest among its range and the specs is exactly like an Iphone 6. However, because of its smaller screen, it is more efficient and can be faster than an Iphone 6 ^_^

The camera has had one of the biggest overhauls, now coming with the 12MP with the front camera offering a clearer and faster autofocus, the improved two-tone flash and Live Photos, where a small amount of video is captured with every photo taken.

The power of the iPhone SE is something to behold as well - it's as powerful as the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus thanks to having the new A9 chip, the M9 co-processor and 2GB of RAM.

The new technology in phone these days...fingerprint ID

The battery lifespan is amazing. It's one of the problems people have with smartphones nowadays and I cannot be carrying 2 phones AND a power bank around. So luckily the Iphone SE's battery span last longer even with a full day usage and I hope it stays that way for a long time.

For 64GB, you can easily get it for RM2,200.00 which is absolutely worth the money rather than the Iphone 6 plus which is ridiculously priced IMHO.

Yes, amazing things can happen with the Iphone SE haha

If you're still in the subset of people that craves for smaller size phones like me, this is definitely the phone for you! I am sold!

More food - Malacca again!

The last year when I was in Malacca, we had much adventure near Jonker Street and discovered so much food there! This time around, I was back with a different group of friends to taste the Baba Nyonya food  =)

Kuih-muih and beehoon for brekkie!

Best onde-onde I have ever tried. Home made and the gula melaka just melts in your mouth. Yummy! We bought like 70 of these back for our families LOL

Chicken rice ball!

I was never a fan of chicken rice ball and the last round was a big disappointment. This time, it was pretty decent but I must say I am still more of a chicken rice (without the ball) fan haha

Aunty Koh Cendol

Super loongg queue! And we queued up for half an hour under the hot piercing sun before the aunty said, 'Cendol habis!' -_-
So we went to Klebang instead. I mean Klebang has super long line also but won't finish so fast lah and the service is much faster in Klebang.

I am back at The Daily Fix!

English Breakfast tea with super cute 'tea bag'

Love the fluffy pancake!

Nyonya food for dinner!

Tong Peh chicken, cili garam fish and vege and soup.

Cili garam is yummy!

Couldn't get Aunty Koh cendol so Aunty Lee's cendol pun bolehlah!

Estadia hotel is nice and cozy and reasonably priced with a great variety breakfast spread but they really need to do something about sound proofing because the walls are super thin.

Famous pineapple tarts can be found at 'Bee Bee'

Homemade pineapple tarts!
You have to book before you come otherwise it's sold out every other day.

We really did find some good food gems this time around because our 'tour guide' is from Malacca and thanks to her, she knows places to go for great food. We went to Jonker but gave up halfway because it was wayyy too crowded to a point people were stepping on each other. So, we decided to not be a 'tourist' and instead go for less crowded places hehe

Definitely one of the most relaxing weekend break!

On a different note, was at Gogi King Korean Barbeque the night before Malacca and the food was not as nice as hyped up in all those social media. But just a shout out to the corn cheese which was absolutely delicious!

We had like 3 of these!
Crazy yummy haha but pricey as it costed RM20 for one and it's not that much in one plate.

And that ends my birthday month with loads of food, fun and laughter with my loved ones =)
Thank you all for the memories <3 xx
