My Top 14 Favourite Looks from the #METGala


My timeline has been flooded with posts about what celebrities wore at the recent “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.” themed MET Gala. One noteworthy trend on the red carpet was that goth makeup is back (hmmm) and not everyone can carry off the futuristic theme.

I almost didn't want to find out what the rest were wearing when I saw Beyonce in a squid-like textured dress (what was she thinking?) and then found that other celebrities were trying to out-do her in the cringe-worthy segment. It was almost to easy to spot the classier looks (or fashionistas will scream "boring" looks).

My Top 14 Favourites
Blake Lively brings her bump to the carpet in a pink silk Burberry gown featuring a long train embellished with red flowers, plus major Lorraine Schwartz coral-and-diamond danglers.





Naomi Watts chooses a mirrored Burberry gown embellished with poppies, then tops it all off with even more bling courtesy of Fred Leighton. The dress looks heavy but she somehow carries it off
Claire Danes makes a major entrance in her  Cinderella like glow in the dark Zac Posen ballgown with its structural bodice, plus Eva Fehren jewelry.

Emma Watson wears a pants/skirt ensemble in a portrait-neckline black-and-white bustier and draped train by Calvin Klein Collection, plus PHYNE by Paige Novick and Walters Faith jewelry. The body of the gown was made using three fabrics, all woven out of yarns made from recycled plastic bottles
Amber Heard goes for Old Hollywood glamour (not on theme, but still pretty!) in a silk charmeuse Ralph Lauren Collection gown, golden Jimmy Choo accessories, Anita Ko necklaces and big loose waves.
Uma Thurman in a backless white Tommy Hilfiger gown with one silver shoulder, plus Cartier jewels, feathered white heels and a glittering clutch (both Jimmy Choo).
Karolina Kurkova wears a romantic dove-gray high-low Marchesa gown with floral appliqu├ęs studded with LED lights, plus Graziela Gems jewelry and gunmetal heels.
Joan Smalls wears a carefully constructed silver high-neck Balmain gown with Giuseppe Zanotti Design heels.
Hannah Davis chooses a seafoam beaded Zuhair Murad Couture gown with a structured slit skirt and metallic belt, plus shoulder-dusting earrings and a Jeffrey Levinson clutch.
Nina Dobrev in a bird-print Marchesa cap-sleeve tulle gown with cutout back.
Taylor Hill in a custom Topshop halter gown with Christian Louboutin heels, a Jimmy Choo clutch and Coomi jewelry.
Bee Shaffer in a floral Alexander McQueen gown with a square neckline and dramatic train
Allison Williams glides by in a custom one-shoulder Peter Pilotto gown with a full skirt and side cutout, adorned with flowers

Emma Stone selects a white Prada gown with a gunmetal leather harness and perfectly-matched shadow, plus Christian Louboutin heels and mismatched Lorraine Schwartz diamonds. (I'm not too sure about the corset though)

  3. Oh wow... those are some gowns to die for... but sadly, I do not think I can ever afford wearing one of those because I am only me... and I am also not as pretty and slender as these gorgeous celebs...

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
