once upon a dinner @ T.G.I. Friday @One Utama

My first time at T.G.I Friday with these and something else....

Went back twice but didn't really like the foodanymore,esp the Fish & Chip... lousy~

Price was not cheap but they are having promotion now.RM29.90 for an appertizer+an entree.

They have free flow carbonated drinks~

Portions are big and a girl like me can't finish an entree with appertizer.

Nothing impressed me except for their celebration surprise~

really nice and surprised! Get friends there if they'd never been there and remember it must be someone's birthday so you get to see the surprise~

Not planning of going there again for some times....

make up workshop by ettusais @ Isetan Lot 10

RM90 for a skincare + make up workshop is not high.

However if the workshop is bad/ unorganized/having bad refreshments& services then, RM90 is considered as HIGH!!!
Luckily it was fully redeemable...

That's what I had in my mind after attending attusais workshop @Isetan, Lot10.

I bought the voucher about a week ago and I was a bit late to the workshop.
The SA called to remind me & I just realized I did not know the venue so I asked.

It was my fault for not asking the venue before. Besides, they put the floor mat at the escalators which were going up. I was heading down and I couldn't see them. Stupid me!!!

The space was covered by curtains(as doors) and it was big. The attendents in my session could not even filled a table!!

I was the first to reach and was seated and waited for other participants.

Took photos while waiting...

cosmetics on the table:curler,blushers,powders,foundations,lippies

(eyeshadow paletter was taken away)

Items on the table(each got a set like this):mirror,brouchers,tissue,cottons,tools

They were all late and finally, the workshop started with less than 10 participants. why was it so..... little people?
I had no idea and I was not sure if they bought the vouchers but did not want to attend?

This was the least participants workshop I had ever attended.(except for Anna Sui's free workshop)

The SA started with greetings ,then she was just following the slides and just standing there beside the laptop, giving some emotionless & bit attractive introduction about ettusais products.

She was really lack of training, presenting skills and confident , I thought.

The worst presentation of all!!!

Then, a girl asked to be model and the hands on session started.

The skincares were not on the table and we had to wait for the SA to pour onto our hands.

Removing make up, cleansing & toning were ok.

There were only less than 8 people with 2 SAs.
Items should be passing around fast. However, they kept letting others waited for a long time to get the products.

sometime,I was almost done but they were some people still not started yet!

Bad service and management!

For facian part, we tried :
  • remover

  • cleanser

  • toner

  • moisturizer

  • peeling mask

  • eye gel

  • sun screen

  • pimple gel

demo on how to peel the mask

peeling mask on my face

  • make sure the peeling mask is smoothed properly so it can peel off easily.

  • do not apply too thick, or tooo thin of the peeling mask

  • peel the mask from side at the bottom( of the direction upwards)

After applying sun screen, make up demo started~

  • liquid foundation of skin matching solour

  • powder

  • tinted eye essense ( which was the door gift too)

  • concealer

  • eyeshadow

  • eyeliner

  • eyebrow

  • blusher

  • lip gloss

make up demonstration

curler, blusher, powder

concealer,eye&lip pencils, lip gloss, new-lauched powder

liquid foundation

There was no special tips or products of ettusais and we were just left to play ourselves after demo done. The SAs would help when you asked for help.
They were actually quite helpful but they were not trained well to handle a workshop thus, some messiness occurred and made me felt bad.
There were nobody using another table but the cosmetics were left on it while we were all here sharing onbly one or two of each product.
Why did you waste everyone's time??? It's really annoying.
Some of the cosmetics were finished/dried up but we still had to use them.

Trying to voice out but with so little SAs, nobody could ever help. If one of them went to get new one, there will be only one SA left serving about 6~8 of us.
I must say that this ws the worst workshop I had ever been to.
If they never improved, they will never get more participants or new customers as they wished.

Finally, the refreshment time~~
When the SA passed to me, I was like :" What the ........???!!!!"
There were only a cup of tea and a puff!!!!
I know the budget may not be enough but each got a puff from b.p was soooooooo not nice!!
The refreshment was not displaying nicely on a table but to serve on paper plate & cup.
Each participant got one set.
I am not sure if you can ask for more, but dare you to??

Well, at least they took out a bowl of tiny sweets on each table.
I grabbed some and left quickly~~

the refreshment & sweets

I redeemed their whitening tissue mask and a box of cotton.

The vitamin C whitening mask was packed 7 x 15ml per pack, cost RM 89
The cotton was packed in 60 pieces per box, cost RM14.

So I paid the balance of RM13 and I was eligible for FREE parking for first 3(maybe 4) hours because I am Isetan Card Member (IMC)~~

I will review on these redemprion soon...

review:Benefit~gee...that was quick!

I used up about two bottles of this.

According to the website, it removed all MU without irritating the eyes.
I am not sure as I used waterproof cosmetics for eyes and I need something stronger.

As for face, it is really nice and good and mild~
clean the face well, without wiping strongly.
it is also quite waterly and has no smell(I can smell the fragrance,at least)
a bottle can last for a long time, about a year?depends...

It is easy to use:
Just pour in the cotton and wipe on the face

I bought when it was RM90 but Iif I am not mistaken, the prised raised.
I disliked this price raising news and never step back to Benefit counter since then.

This is non-oily remover and it does not remove waterproof eye MU.

I would get this again and make it my HQ face MU remover if the price was the same...
Since I had a lot of free/redeemed MU removers, I am not planning to get it shortly.

If you are looking for something non-oily and you have the budget, get this!!
You will not regret..

A 236.6ml gee...that was quick! costs USD21 on the website:

free international shippingavailable for purchase made above USD115 sometimes.
get friends/family to share and you got free shipping then~

Btw, I had good experience with the service provided by Benefit after sending a complaining e-mail to them. The action taken was quick and satisfactory~~
and that made me to go back to it again in the future...

once/twice a month a milk bath~~

Thanks to his mum who sometimes have those going to expired goods free to bring home~

I got the milk samples may be twice or trice but I just realized I could use them for milk bathing~~~

The goods were really a lot and My family&I could not finish them until they expired.
The milk samples
The milk in bail

The milk+ water (bubbles shown)

There was once I added a few drops of essebtial oil I bought from Bali.
However, I felt nothing special with it...

May be I need other frageance? haha...

So,what's so good about using milk to bath??

AS we know, milk may cause the skin smooths .(I love it!!)

Besides, it may whiten the skin too. I am not sure about this as I have fair skin...

These two reasons mde me a milk fan....haha

Try googling for more benefits of milk ...:P

Btw, I never bothered by the milk scent since I had been drinking milk for years...

avoid milk if you do!!! XD


Just a day to try matching the green & pink colours~~

I dared not to apply too many colours and they were light on my eyes.
wanted to get some blosoom feels for eyes but this was not so good.

I shall try again next time....

makeover by Dior

I got the makeover voucher + a sample cut from Cleo magazine...
I went Mid Valley The Gardens when I was around PJ for the service.

Dior is launching their autumn cosmetics where there was a limited Ed eyes palette

A SA approached to me when I was walking to Robinsons to promote their perfume.
Since I got the chance now, I just presented my voucher and got the makeover service.

I wore make up but I wanted a new look so I asked the MU artist to re-do my MU.
She did not cleaned my eyes as I had the double eyelid stickers on so, she cleaned my face &re-apply the foundation & just apply the new eye colours on top of my eyes MU.

I could smell tabacco from the MU girl and I didn't really like it... What a bad habit~

She used the new eyebrow pencil and eyeshadow palette for my eyes.
I had no idea why was she doing this but she kept telling how good were the Dior products that she was using on my face and SUGGESTED me to get them!!!

I really dislike this as I was trying to enjoy my makeover and I wanted to try first.
I knew how goodwere those things but could you just let me finish my makeover and stop criticing how not suitable the colours I was using??

I really regretted for sitting down to get the makeover done.
Luckily, she was not free after my makeover was done and hiew~~

Then the SA came and tell me how were those products&the makeover and asked if I wanted anything.
I was not planned to buy so I rejected her & took the pictures. I was about to leave and the SA had totally forgot (or pretending to be) about my sample until I asked.
I grabbed the sample & off I went~

I did feel that the SA was unhappy as I bought nothing but had makeover&sample....
Perhaps I was just too sensitive?

makeover done~~

I was at Mid Valley today(13/9/09, Sunday) and I saw the booth with photoshooting there. I just passed through it and not showing any interest in it~

Anyone interested may want to visit the counter cos they were running a promotion which is you got free makeover+photo shooting+ photos with any purchase made above RM200.
No idea when is the llast day... :P
