July Favourites (ft. Art of Speed) | 2019


I did an intro offline before this. One hell of a paragraph but then I forgot to save it so I can't remember what I wrote and here's a new intro wrote at 3 in morning. I don't know how but somehow I managed to wrote down and took photos of everything that makes me happy last month, despite how busy I was with my nephew, the bigger he grow up to be, the more clingy he is. Rarely listen to me but super clingy.

Anyways, last month I splurged so much on my favourite skincare brand, trying new stuff and loving it. I finally get to see the latest Avengers movie, and I almost spoiled it to my sister because she kept asking about the whole "I LOVE YOU 3000" thing and who said it bla bla bla. And the other day we watched the rerun of Age of Ultron on HBO and I almost spilled about the whole Captain America... and the Mjölnir.... and the other hammer thing.... gosh! I can't wait till I get a new HDMI adapter for my Macbook so I can let my family watch it too so we can talk about it freely. Also there's something about the annual event that my siblings went to every year at the end of the post, enjoy :)

MOTM: AVENGERS - ENDGAME
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I know.. I know... I'm a little late for the party but better late than never right? I finally got the chance to download this movie in full HD and watch it all by myself. I like to watch movie alone because that way I won't miss a single detail. And man, I didn't know the movie was going to end that way ⏤ if you have watched it too, you'll know what I'm talking about. No no, don't worry, no spoilers here to those who still haven't watch it. I can't wait for my whole family to watch it. Just... one Avengers movie marathon night, that's all I want. Because my brother-in-law haven't watch the Infinity War yet, so we need to start from there.

SEOUL NAMI'S FIST RICE
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
We randomly went to this new Korean BBQ restaurant at The Gardens near where my dad works at. Me and my bro-in-law went with the Fist Rice out of curiosity and my sister was craving for Kimchi Fried Rice so she went with that. Fist rice comes with a set of plastic gloves, you have to mix the rice together while it still hot, and then use both hands to turn it into a mini rice balls. It was really good but a tad bit overpriced. However it was a fun experience nevertheless.

HOMEMADE DAKGALBI FRIED RICE
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Me and my sister loves to experiment or try new recipe for all the food that we love to ate outside. And this time we learned how to make our own version of Dakgalbi fried rice. Whoever went to Mr. Dakgalbi would recognised this immediately. With the help of numerous NAVER blogs and a little knowledge about korean fried rice that I picked up when I was in Seoul for 2 weeks, we made it. It may not taste exactly like the one from Mr. Dakgalbi but it was close and good enough to fulfilled our cravings, plus it was easy to make.

KIEHL'S SHOWER GEL
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I am an avid Kiehl's user and my current obsession from the brand is the shower gel. It's a 'made for  all' body wash and by 'all' it literally means ALL. Gentle enough for any skin type also it is suitable for use on body, face and hair but I never use it on my hair by the way. I am in love with its weird texture. Almost like a hand sanitiser texture.
The unique gel texture formula is made with sustainably-sourced Aloe Vera and naturally foaming Soap Tree extract. - Kiehl's
I also hooked by its smell although my sister said she hate it. I don't know how to describe the scent, somehow I can smell lemongrass but I could be wrong. It doesn't state what kind of smell it is on the label, or maybe I overlooked it. All I know that it smells... expensive hahaha ! My friend told me I was crazy to spend so much money on a shower gel but I'm doing this for myself, and somehow the smells help me sleeps better at night, like a therapy so I can say that this is the best RM150 I've ever spent and it's like I have my own spa treatment at home. So yes, I only use this shower gel at night or when I am traveling because I always have a hard time sleeping at a new place and this product really helps me a lot.

FAMILY MART SEA SALT ICE CREAM
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I was never a fan of of FM's soft serve because none of them so far came close to being tasty for my liking. But last month FM released a new ice cream flavour and the first time I tried it, next thing I knew I was already on my second cone and almost went for three. It was really good. I hope they keep the flavour permanently but it's Family Mart.. they'll never keep a good soft serve's menu permanent. And yes, it's blue.

MOTM: AVA MAX & NCT 127

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
NCT 127 - Highway To Heaven (Eng Ver.) They released one of my favourite song from their latest album 'We Are Superhuman' in English version. The music video was filmed entirely in one of the continents in North America during their North America tour, my head was telling me that it was in Phoenix but I'm not pretty sure about it but still, I like how it turned out and everything about the music video fits the mood of the song. Every time I hear this song, I feel like I'm on a long journey to nowhere. I just want to be on the road with this song blasting loud.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Ava Max - So Am I (ft. NCT 127) I think I heard this song on the radio before but I didn't know who it was by or the name of the song because when NCT 127 dropped the news about a collaboration with Ava Max, as soon as I played it on Spotify my mouth seems to remember the lyrics and the melody. I am obsessed with this song especially during the 3rd chorus after the rap part because I love how Ava's voice harmonised with Jaehyun's soft and deep voice. I was smiling all the time I don't even know why.

LIMITLESS ALBUM
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Y'all know I have to include this one. I just can't get enough of this album and I made a whole post about it here which I never did before on any of my past kpop albums. I don't know how many times I mentioned this but I'll say it again, I can't wait to get my hands on the other two versions, and once I did, I'll make a long a** post about it.

ART OF SPEED (8TH ANNUAL)
Black Rainbows by Vans
The entrance fee went up by RM5 this year make it RM20 per person. damn !
My personal favourite. I love the steampunk vibe to it, kind of like MAD MAX or something
The bold and beautiful, Cassidy Anderson
Johnny, second from right. A rockabilly and famous for his Yokohama twist.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Me and my siblings we've been going to AOS for years and this year is its 8th year and our 4th? I can't remember. One of my main personal purpose to go there is to meet Johnny Daigo, my favourite Japanese rock band's frontman. I didn't go on the first day but thank God I met him again on the 2nd day for the 3rd time. I only have videos of him this year though, no photos at all but I attached a photo of him and his bandmates from last year.

Back to our main purpose, we are here for the art and other creativity by the locals who turned something old and ordinary to something incredible, extraordinary and amazing. Well, that's what defined Art of Speed. And all of the vehicles displayed is not just for show, some really uses it. But AOS is not just about customised vehicles, but also about custom culture. People came from different states, put on their best style and support local brands. In another hall, there was a special section called Hail Vintage where they only sell vintage apparels and accessories. My siblings was busy diving in the sea of vintage overalls while me? I was immersed by the scene and just taking photos of everything until I bumped into Cassidy Anderson. Famous for her Malay song covers on youtube, hails from Sydney Australia but feels like Malaysia is home. She's also known as a Marilyn Monroe cosplayer in Universal Studio Singapore. I was too shy to ask for a photo so, let's just enjoy this random photo of her with her fan.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━


I told my sister about Cassidy and the first thing she said was, 
"kau selalu tanya kulit kau warna macamana kan? kalau kau pakai baju backless macam tu, putih macam tu lah kulit kau. Sebab tu lah aku suruh elakkan amik gambar dekat dinding putih, nanti kau hilang." 
Tak tau lah nak gelak ke tak but that was so random and walaupun dah 10 orang cakap benda yang hampir sama, I still didn't believe her or them. I remembered I asked her about the colour of my skin because I can't find the perfect foundation for my skin tone. I was like, "pucat sangat ke aku ni?" I guess that was why she suddenly said that.
And........ that was my July. Kind of lengthy right? But at least I got more content to write about. I'm not sure about August because all I did was eat, sleep and repeat. And this just happen today, when I was at the hospital waiting for my dad, I received a DM from Anis Nabilah, told me that I'm the winner for the mystery gift for the giveaway that she and Beeha organised. Thank you so much. I joined the GA with so many doubts and super late but still managed to walk away with something. Thank you again.
Much love, T.

      And it grips better than the one I bought at Machine. Yang mahal tah hape2, yang murah jugak sedap pakai.

    1. Samalah, my sister and brother in law pun nak tengok Endgame but my brother in law tak tengok Infinity War lagi so kitorg kena tunggu dia tengok yang tu dulu baru saya boleh pasangkan Endgame untuk dorang, kalau tak nanti tak faham. I'm not a fan of Marvel tapi lepas tengok Infinity War, rasa trigger nak tengok semua and start from the beginning sebab nak faham the entire MCU timeline and plots. Ibarat macam nak tengok Harry Potter lah, Kalau tak tengok dari awal, memang tak faham.

      Me too, currently putting Thor: The Dark World, Spiderman: Homecoming and Far From Home, Captain Marvel and the first The Avengers in my to-watch list sebab nak review balik, plus all these movies are the MCU movies that I haven't watch yet. It would be a great movie marathon haha
