Recent Addiction : BlackBall

Recently I have this habit craving of desserts. Hmm... good or bad?

Yea, am addicted to BlackBall lately!!! If you're are following my instagram, I guess you'll know that I've becoming a fan of BlackBall already and I had 2 大黑丸 (BlackBall Signature) in 2 weeks loll. I can't recall back when was the last time I had desserts, I think it's been long time already... I guess no one don't like eating desserts right, especially girls? I find myself craving for desserts the most when I'm in bad mood or hungry moment. lol #girlsbeinggirls

Actually I know BlackBall months ago when I was still studying in college (am officially graduated now). A best friend of mine told me about it, she highly recommend me to try it and kept on telling me how yummy was it.

But I didn't believe her cuz I tried Snowflake once before and I don't like it, somehow it tastes kinda weird to me. I don't know why there are still lotsa people like eating Snowflake, maybe it's just me, I don't like the herbs flavor. So eventually I thought BlackBall and Snowflake are more or less the same cuz their desserts seem similar to me so I didn't bother to try this kind of desserts again.


Months later, one day, the boyfie told me he had BlackBall with his classmates and he said it was good some more better than Snowflake. I doubt. I asked true or not, I still didn't believe him then he said will bring me go to try BlackBall someday.

And the 'someday' didn't happen until last month, I had my first BlackBall @ Damansara Uptown. lol Like finally... finally I tried it! I know right, I'm so outdated :(

We ordered BlackBall famous bestseller - The cold BlackBall Signature 大黑丸 RM6.90
Wow! The portion is big enough for two person and value for the money we paid. Looks yummy right? Got lotsa pearls, red beans, taro Q balls, grass jelly and not forgetting the shaved ice placed under those ingredients. I think the combination is just right and perfect which makes me drooling while blogging this. lol

At first, I didn't expect too much from eating this. Then when I eat the first bite, my mind was like "omg how can on earth there's something yummy like this???" *flying to the heaven* lollll surprisingly it tastes so much yummy and better than Snowflake!!! The taro balls and pearls are so springly and it has a nice smooth texture, the grass jelly base sweetness level was just right, and I can feel the minty feeling in the back of my throat while eating it. *thumbs up* Oh, don't forget to add on the optional evaporated milk, trust me, it tastes extra yummy with it :)

I IZ A HAPPY GIRL OF THE DAY :) HEHE
I will definitely come back for 3rd, 4th time... again!!! *winks*

I even commented on their Facebook page and suggested them to open outlets in Kepong so that I don't have to drive all the way down to the nearest BlackBall outlet @ Damansara Uptown. For your information, I have to go through a road toll, total of RM3.20 for travelling back and forth. I remember last time there was a outlet @ KL Festival City, Setapak but unfortunately it has closed already. -_- So I really hope they will open an outlet in Kepong, I think I will go and eat every week. lolll

ARTY Profesional Official Launch

Months ago, I had an opportunity to attend my first ever exclusive blogger event in my life, damn excited!!! Thanks to MIVVA.com for the free invitation passes to ARTY Professional Official Launch @ BUSABA Heavenly Thai, Bangsar Shopping Centre. So I invited my BFF, Steffi to tag along with me.

I was damn nervous cuz I just got to know that I'm the lucky winner the day before the event... lol

The dress code for the event was "Stylish in Black". I was having problems with getting black outfit cuz most of my outfits are colorful. So I decided to wear a black chiffon blouse match with a blue skirts.

PS:// I overslept that day cuz I forgot to set alarm wtf and the event was at 3pm. Luckily my BFF called my home else I'll be still sleeping. Then I quickly got all dolled up, got everything prepared just in one hour then off to go and pick up my BFF.

Me and my BFF - Steffi 

Phew! Luckily I know the place and reached on time. And I realized only few people (less than 10 people) came early, there are still a lot of people haven't reached yet O_O I personally don't think it's good to be late on events even though you're a VIP or whatsoever cuz being a good-timer can reflects your personality and attitude, unless you've got a sudden emergency. So please make sure you have a good time management and be on time always, make it as a habit or else you'll ruin your image especially on an important appointment/events :)

Hmm... I personally do think the set up of the venue is quite dark for a product launching event like this. It's hard to take pretty pics with the uneven lighting plus I don't have a good camera/DSLR with me, am so sorry for the low quality pictures as I only have my mobile - Samsung Galaxy S2 as my camera. So please bare with me. Imma get a nice camera next time okay... *winks*

Make-up bib

So while waiting for the others to come, I tried out the AP cosmetics on the table, taking pics and surprisingly food was being served as well. Yea I didn't know there'll be a refreshment for us, damn happy cuz I was rushing and didn't have time to eat breakfast at home, so this is just perfect for brunch. lol *happy girl face*

 Sandwiches & some fried thinggy

Minced Chicken Thai Salad

The food was really great! Around 4pm, the event finally started...
P'Fee, the Creative Director also the ARTY Professional MU Artist with the lady translator beside him.

For your information, Arty Professional is one of the well-known cosmetics brands in Thailand. The philosophy of the brand is emphasis on the importance of having a flawless and a radiant skin complexion cuz they strongly believes that "all make up will look great, only if the base is perfect."

Therefore it is reluctantly important to apply base a.k.a primers or complexion modifier before foundation which would helps you on minimizing imperfections and modify your skin tone as well.
ARTY Professional Complexion Modifier RM120
they claimed this as the best makeup base, also their best-seller!

ARTY Professional Sparkling Primer RM120
This primer helps to diminish dullness with a luminous dewy complexion and replace the appearance of fatigue.

 
This is how the liquids look like, can see those micro-shimmering molecules. I applied it on my right hand side. *please do ignore my dry hands*

ARTY Professional Nail Polish and Shatter
Above picture credited to Christine K.

Tried the Nail Polish (Nude color) and Shatter (Black color).
I personally like the nail polish texture, so smooth, it dries very fast and has a glossy finish. For the shatter part, it's very easy to apply but the outcome... uhm I'm not a fan of crackle-nail-art.

Actually there is still a lot of goodies but I didn't manage to take every of them. Guess I was too shy to take pics cuz almost everyone have a camera/DSLR, I only have my S2 :'( Silly me. #failedblogger

Okay, gotta steal some pics from another blogger -_- Pictures credits to MissSunshine.

Conclusion: Well, I really enjoyed and had lotsa fun that day. Luckily I brought my BFF along else I'll be alone and feeling awkward. Oh, by the way, saw Chuckei, her sis Ashely and her gang (Nana, Nat & Cherrie) coming as well. But I didn't get to take pic with them as I was too shy and am socially awkward -_-

Alright, shall end this post with my OOTD
