Ai FM Calendar 2016

Ai FM is a radio station in Malaysia which broadcast 24 hours various kind of music and program. I was so lucky that had won a calendar 2016 because it is not for sell.


The pictures in the calendar were taken at Pangkor Island.  Pangkor Island is a resort island off the coast of Perak, Malaysia. The major industries of the island are tourism and fishing.


The places which can be seen in Calendar such as Fu Lin Kong temple, Kota Belanda, Pantai Pasir Bogak, Tapak jemuran ikan masin, Limbungan kapal, Jeti Awam, Batu Bersurat and many more.


Xiao Wei and Xiao Fen are sisters and both of them works as DJ. Xiao Fen also is a host in a TV show “What Say You?”.


In University, I always listen for Ji An’s music show although the music which introduced was very rare. I forgot the quote of Ji An which lead me listen to his show.

当你的左耳听流行歌曲时,别忘了让你的右耳听非潮流歌曲。


I like the show which hosted by Min Ming because it is so knowledgeable and will learn something when listen to her show. The bad is usually the show host in the afternoon so I seldom have time to listen it.


If I not mistake, Jin Chuan had worked as news anchor before he joined Ai FM. Sometime, I will heard of his morning talk show on the way to office.


Before this, I always listen to Jin Long’s show in the car after having some jog in sports complex. I knew that he had received some awards for his career.


Shu Lin (July), Jing Cheng (September), En Ci (October) and Benny (November) were the DJ whose joined Ai FM after I finished my study in University so all of them, I did not knew very well.





Talking about Guo Jun, I can said that I had won some prizes from him before :D


Before this, I also had won movie CD as a prize from Pei Yin. Now the CD was still in my house.

Book Haul from Book House

I think this was my first time to purchase book via Facebook fan page except direct purchase with author in his/her fan page.

Death is something which we seldom touch about it because not one would like talking about death. This also made many people did not know how to face with death. Through online, I knew that Yi Liang had published book about this topic so I planned to buy it for my own knowledge.



The reason I choose to buy the books from Book House because it offered 20% discount for these books. Beside that I had negotiated with Book House that use postage by sea so that I can pay less for the postage because if use courier, the postage need around RM 20++ compare with post by sea around RM 7 but slow.


Beside two books from Yi Liang, I also bought same topic book but different author who is Kaze Lee. You can hear her radio interview in Chinese for her new book.




I was satisfied with services provided by Book House because at first Book House did not sell for << Hospice Palliative Care >> but Book House can help me to find it. Before this I had been told that my book will be received after 2-4 weeks so I expect will receive on year 2016 but surprised that I receive it after 2 weeks.

Mask House Diamond V Fit Mask

Who dislike V shape face?

I always dream of having V shape face so that my face will not look round when taking picture. Recently I have been use Diamond V Fit Mask which will firm my cheeks.


Diamond V Fit Mask is the latest Korean V-Shaped facial combination with V-Fit mask and slimming band. With pressure leading-in technology, BodyFit essence can be adsorbed efficiently into the cheek area. Lifting up and firming the shape of your face, promoting facial blood circulation and burning up extra fat on the face to remodel a V-shaped face- Mask House

How to use?



I advise that before use it, practice using slimming band so that will not take longer time in explore how to use it after apply the mask.


After apply the mask on my cheeks and upper neck, I feel warm of it. It is normal because BodyFit Essence is defensing the fat of my cheeks. Beside V shape face, our neck also easier to explore our age if have wrinkle. In this mask for upper neck has Q10 Coenzyme which reduces the appearance of deep neck wrinkle on neck.


The function of slimming band is to ensure the essence to be absorbed efficiently into cheeks. I am not sure whether the way I put the slimming band is correct or not. Do correct me if I am wrong.


After 30 minutes, I put off the band and mask. Then I measure the result and found out that the length of my cheeks had been reduced from 26cm to 25.5cm. Although it is just 0.5 cm, I am still happy because at least I can see the result directly after using it. You can use it after a week. To achieve desired result, try to use it for a month continuously.

Christmas DIY 2015: Gingerbread Man

When talked about Christmas, we will think of Santa Claus but I did not want to use Santa Claus for my Christmas DIY because it is so normal. Then I use gingerbread man as main theme of my Christmas DIY.


Envelope

For envelope, I choose to use Gingerbread house as decoration so I online search for and print it out for coloring.



I used 2 different types of Gingerbread houses for envelope decoration.






I used green color envelopes for sending Christmas wish.


After coloring, I cut all the Gingerbread houses piece by piece and paste on envelopes.




Before sent out, I had pasted some colorful snowflakes on envelopes.




Stamp to Malaysia (80 cents), USA (RM 2.00) and Taiwan (RM 1.40) which had been weighted accordingly by post office staff.


Gingerbread Man

I also found the blank Gingerbread Man via online and printed in color paper. Then I pasted it on a card.



After that, cut the Gingerbread Man accordingly.



The Gingerbread Men were so plain so I put button stickers on it and draw some smiley faces.





Rainbow Loom

It quite some times that rainbow loom was so famous that everyone was addicted for it. My mum and sister also bought it to make some charm and cute items by watched You Tube. After few months, rainbow loom was forgotten and put in a corner.


When prepared for my Christmas DIY, suddenly I thought about rainbow loom and asked my mum and sister helped me do a lollipop. They tried to do it but lollipop seems a little bit difficult to them so changed to ice-cream. One of my friends who received it told me that she put it on her Christmas tree.


Small Bookmark 

When bought some stickers and washi tape via online, I also bought Christmas small bookmark. It comes with 4 different styles.


If just put the small bookmark into envelopes, I scared my friends will not aware about it so I online printed Christmas small tag and put the bookmark on it.



That all for my Christmas DIY and prepare for Chinese New Year DIY. Hope will success to do what I want. Haha..
