Burt's Bees Workshop rocks my world!!

(1st Burt's Bees outlet in Malaysia @ Curve, next to Borders)

I've attended the Burt's Bees Workshop in Royale Bintang Hotel at Curve on 24/4/10. I must say the workshop is one of the best one I have been. I have learnt all about Burt's Bees products and company. Burt's bees offers earth-friendly natural skincare, beauty and personal care products.

10 things you must know about Burt's Bees:
  1. No synthetic ingredients/ artificial coloring
  2. no harmful ingredients or elements
  3. promote healthy skin
  4. detoxify and excrete
  5. nutritional and anti oxidants
  6. 95% active ingredients
  7. never tested on animals
  8. focus on cottage industries
  9. environmental friendly
  10. every product has a "natural bar" which tells you the percentage of natural ingredients in it, with Detailed ingredient descriptions.
The company also title themselves as "The Greater Good":
  • believes in natural ingredients
  • protect environmental/nature
  • committed socially responsibility - what they took from nature, they give back.
Very impressive after hearing the Burt's Bees practices that. I am definitely support them on this. I think is pretty brilliant to come out with a lip balm which is 100% natural, and their baby care range is safe and edible!

(pic grab frm Miu)
After the briefing, we had Yogataal session by the pool, sponsored by CandiSoo Fitness. I thought the yoga gonna be short, turns out is an hour session. It was a power yoga, sweat alot, but feels good after that especially the relaxing part. After the yoga session, each of us receive a RM190 cash voucher redemption from CandiSoo fitness.

Next, we headed back to the conference room, change to our normal clothes instead of fitness attire. Had a refreshing honey lemon drink, and some finger food. The workshop continues to teach us on using DIY homemade ingredient to create face mask. Main ingredients are eggs, honey, and rosemary essential oil. Stir them till nicely blend, apply on face for 1o mins, rinse off. I felt my skin is tighter (not to be mistaken as the dryness tight), smooth and whole complexion brightens.

Recipe for DIY face mask:
dry skin: egg yolk and honey
oily skin: egg white and honey
normal/combo skin: whole egg and honey
(all could add a small drop of rosemary essential oil).

Next, Bobbi Brown training manager Carina, showed us Pretty Powerful video presentation. It's their latest campaign, a contest to seek out 15 different gals, regardless of age, sizes and skin color who express how they wan to be look pretty n beautiful in a simple way. I love the make over, not too overly make-up, but focus on enhancing the features to achieve a finished look.

Makeover demo frm Bobbi Brown, simple make over yet looks good.

There's lucky draw session, Adriene won this pretty Bobbi Brown make up set. It's so gorgeous!
I wished to get that, but I do won something from the lucky draw- RM190 worth of 10 session group fitness programme frm CandiSoo Fitness!!

Lastly, Burt's Bees fed us buffet lunch at the hotel lobby!! I didn't expect that to happen, coz we only pay RM30, and we took home the goodie bag worth of RM200 of products!!! My heart leaps!! This is the best ever workshop i have attended. Thanks Burt's Bees for pampering us from head to toe and also not forgetting our stomach too! :))

Goodie bag consist of Fabulously Fresh Body wash, Soothingly Sensitive Body lotion, Coconut foot creme, Beeswax lip balm, Bobbi brown samples- brightening moisture, intensive serum, cleansing oil, and complimentary make up lesson, Nuyou pink sticky notepad.

After the workshop, used my 20rm voucher rebate frm the goodie bag for the items above!

Phad Thai Restaurant, USJ Taipan

Cheap eats - Thai food in USJ Taipan -Phad Thai Restaurant. I find the Thai food served here are authentic to taste and reasonably priced.

Love their tom yam soup, very appetizing aroma and taste and good balance of spicy and sour taste. This is not too hot or spicy as the one served in Thai Thai restaurant, Sunway Pyramid.

Fry Kang Kung, fresh vege and not too salty.

Fried chicken skin, this is yummylicious! I usually hate fried stuff, but this is too hard to resist. The skin is so crisp and crunchy. It goes well with the sweet and sour sauce.

Forgot the dish name. :P Stir fry chicken with beans..mild spicy with tantalizing smell. Chicken texture cooked jst right!

They also served sticky mango rice, but my stomach was too full to contain the rest. The mangoes looks fresh. Will definitely come back to try this next round.

21, USJ 10/1C,
Subang Taipan
Subang Jaya, Selagor.
(monday- close, Tues - Sun - 10am-10pm)
(same row as 100 yen shop, or behind Hong Leong bank, Taipan).

Mad Hatter's Tea Party by MIU and Blogger's Food Review @ The Smokehouse, Bangsar

Yesterday I've attended Miu's Mad Hatter's Tea party at The Smokehouse. I've never been into Smokehouse restaurant before, but I've heard they have another branch in Fraser Hill. :) I guess it must be cosy up there having such a pretty cottage style restaurant.

The Smokehouse restaurant in Bangsar, it has the style of an English cottage like i had imagined. The big cushion, decorated fireplace, vintage stuff - hanging lamps, mirrors, old time vinyl player, porcelain plates and tea cups contribute to the overall traditional English house style. I thought i was back to England when I was there, if outside was raining, it will be perfect for me!

Miu has put up sweet lovely tree with hanging paper rabbits, flowers, crowns...lovely indeed!! Fyi, the decorations on the tree was craft made by her mom! Bravo!!

Mad Hatter's tea party soon to begin!

Miu wrote our names on lovely handmade place card!!

Me, was seated in between Stacey and Su! Stacey dressed as half Red Queen and half Alice, Su dressed as the Sexy Lolita Alice! While me the Avant Garde Mad Hatter. It was quite fun to see everyone really dressed up for this tea party!

I had a very light lunch, cant wait to begin my food tasting! Yup!! I've tried every single thing food that placed on the table! *big grin!" Here's my food review...start with the tea sets...

Smokehouse set A (RM12) -scone, apple pie. Serve with a pot of tea or coffee. A Must try!! The scones are popular here in Smokehouse, their yummylicious strawberry jam is homemade, love tis combination the most! Goes well with butter too, but for the clotted cream i find it abit airy for my liking. The scone looks like a harden puff pastry, but surprisingly it's not as hard as it seem. Not too soft or hard texture for this scone. The apple pie is so appetizing! The best apple pie I have tasted in KL!! The tantalizing smell of the apple taste melts in your mouth when taking a bite down. The outer layer pastry is pretty crispy. Thumbs up for Smokehouse apple pie!! I would come back here for more apple pie cravings! Ohh did i mention that the apple pie in Smokehouse homemade too??

Smokehouse set B (RM18)- scone, apple pie, cake, brownie, sandwiches. Served with a pot of coffee/tea. The servings were added extras during the party. :)

The cake is an orange cake, it carries a hint of orange smell, not overly strong. The brownie and orange cake both has pretty good texture and not too oily or bitter aftertaste. For sandwich, I've only tried the egg and cucumber sandwich. It is prepared with fresh veges ingredients. I find it very healthy and fresh. There are 3 types of sandwiches serve in Smokehouse, Egg and cucumber sandwich(RM12), Roast chicken sandwich (RM15), Roast Beef sandwich(Rm18). All served with french fries.

The cheese and onion caramelised tarts(RM10), the crust is quite thick for this. It has a bit of salty, sweet taste, thus the combination of taste is pretty weird for me.

Next...the Rarebit - beef bacon, cheese on toast (RM12). I have to say this is one favourite! The strong deletable smell of bacon and the smooth and soft texture of the egg are very palatable! Beef bacon served here is halal.

Beef Wellington(RM48) has added into my favourite list! Beef wrapped in a puff pastry to bake. I find the beef has a tender texture, smells not too pungent, the puff pastry surrounds it was pretty crisp. The mushroom sauce with beef is so succulent!! Ooohh la still thinking and craving about it. Now..i must say the potatoes taste very heavenly, when comes to potatoes am very picky!!

Dessert time!!
Chocolate mousse (RM8)- very chocolate creamy and not too airy texture. Can't commend much, as am not a chocolate mousse fans.

Bomb Alaska (RM28) - a unique dessert! It has vanilla ice cream and meringue, cherries, cut fruits buried in it. Lights were dimmed when the rum was poured over, it flamed up and the whole "white mountain" surrounds with "dancing fire flames in blue". What a pretty sight!
Smokehouse manager Dennis told us that Bomb Alaska is a famous dessert which frequently called by couples. Because of the pretty sight of the dancing flames in the dark on a "ice mountain", when the lights were dimmed. I guess if anyone who would like to propose using this dessert by hiding the ring in it, sure makes the whole event extra romantic. :) But make sure you consult with the manager first..whether the ring will melt by the fire. haha. The fire burns awhile, begin to smell of burning from the dessert. The flames dies after that.

The top layer of the dessert look and taste like sweet cotton ball, not too airy in texture. Inner part, the ice cream, fruits and meringue taste pretty good. Not too sweet. The smells of rum is quite mild now after the burned. Some of the black bits on the top parts result frm burning tasted like charcoal. Other than that the rest is an interesting experience. u know Feb 1st is Baked Alaska day??!! :)

Lastly, the tasty creme brulee (RM8) is divine! Tantalizing custard smell, with a tad of burnt brownish caramel on top. Take a mini spoonful, you can taste the smooth velvety soft egg custard texture and hint of caramel smell with its crispy crystallise on top.

Now, in between tasting the food. We did some cam whore session....well not some, ALOt!! After the dessert, Miu announced the best dress prizes to the Red Queen, continue to 2nd, 3rd n 4th best dressed winners. Followed with more quizzes. Everyone went home with a full filling stomach and yummy pretty prizes. Thanks Miu for organising such event!
