Reviewing back 2011

Dear Boss,

This is a submission of the annual review of As you can see from this year's compilation of post , notorious reader comments and ratings, she's been paying A LOT less attention to this blog as compared to previous years.

Hereinafter, we've only manage to collect these sparse few memoirs of post from her blog. These are the few highlights we've listed down which has happened to Cereal in 2011.

1) Opening her very first blogshop 

By selling Japanese DIY candy called PopinCookin. Its a marvellous, new japanese invention. Gotta love ém!

Again, I'm gonna slut my blogshop but its available at

plus we have international delivery! (don't worry about the USDollar , after conversion to RM its pretty reasonable )

2) Converting her blog into a makeup review blog 

Just this year I've started to realize how much make-up has changed my life, and I think doing a make-up review post is a great way to tell other people what to buy and what not to buy.

Here was my review on Maybeline Makeup :D

3) Trip to Penang

Which was an absolute eye-opener, and not to mention a very lovely experience

Never knew that Penang had actually so much stuff to do with so many wonderful people to meet. Sometimes, we have to learn to appreciate travelling in our own country before we complain how we never get the chance to go overseas!

A short post about this is available here. 

4) Discovery the Ipad2

Wtf this wasn't even a blogspot about this, but the best gift to the world in 2011 wasn't the end of poverty, hunger, curing a lethal sickness, it is the IPAD 2. It has provided the world with so many hours of endless entertainment, time-killing functions, and possibly about 10% of portable work, but it has by far trumped almost everything else on this damn list.

What I love most about Ipad is being able to edit my pics easily and posted them almost immediately on facebook. I've such an attention whore! 

There's this application to put fake lashes on anything you want, so I tested them out on my boyfriend's dog. HAHAHAHHAHAAHAHAHHAA.

There are other things as well not listed down properly such as her finally passing her CLP (which she failed once last year, and it took her another whole year in 2011 to finally pass the BLOODY THING) ;  Getting in a healthy relationship in 2011 with food and a new toy boy; Finally learning to cook stuff that's not microwavable; and changing to a slightly better job.

We hope that our next year's annual 2012 report shall be a better one.

Wondermilk @ Solaris Dutamas

One rather personal post coming up!

Havent written about having a boyfriend in the longest time ever (um.. maybe only 2 years XD ) I stopped blogging about boyfriends for a while coz c'mon la let's face it, damn paiseh right If I keep writing how many boyfriend's I've changed over the last few years..... (*sheepish*)

But after much consideration and thought, it really isn't fair to NOT talk about someone who has become a huge part of my life............and that I actually am dating :)


I digress, this post is more about Wondermilk opening its new store at Solaris Dutamas. To be honest, I've never gotten around to visiting their flagship store back at Uptown coz its always so jammed up with cars. Solaris Dutamas is a much , much better choice, not to mention the place is just freakin awesome. If you're an architectural / art junkie you're bound to fall in love with this place.

They sell the most delicious ever cupcakes!! The Cappuccino is alrite as well, and nowhere near as expensive as Starbucks :) 

These are cupcakes Queenie bought for us 2 weeks ago and the very same culprits that spurred me to look for the Wondermilk store in Solaris Dutamas. Seriously amazing stuff I swear they must have put cocaine in there  somewhere lol. (Flavours: Strawberry, Coffee, Chocolate, but I've forgotten the other flavours but still delish!)

Maybeline Hyper Sharp!


I've been such a hermit hiding away from the internet world lately (except facebook but its become more of a commodity rather than internet anymore T^T ) 

Been meaning to create a post about my everytime make-up routine. Not like anyone cares but whatever. I feel it really helps other girls like me who have single eyelids. It really helps my eyes look TONS bigger, especially when I don't bother to use double-eye lid tape since they don't work on me anywayz. 

A close up for my everyday make up

Here's my basic make up fix:

Heroine Make Liquid Matte BB 
Heroin Make smooth cover powder

Essence brown eyeliner (super cheap for like, RM7.90 only) 
Maybeline Hyper Sharp Liner (around the range of RM20 ) 

I really really really love this liner. Making ''winged'''tips at the ends of my eyes just became a hundred times neater and so much more accurate! I love how its waterproof as well as I have oily eyelids and it lasts all day long.

The only thing I don't like about it is that it finishes like seriously fast. I've only been using it for a month but I can start to see that the ink isn't as thick as it used to be when I first bought it :/ Kinda pricey to keep topping up RM20 a month!! Its like fuckin electricity bills. =.=

Lovin'my new table cloth as well. ho ho!! just bought it barely 2 hours ago from 100yen store and I thought it'd make a great background for my reviews from now on :D

Popin Cookin : Sushi Set

Recently I've just started an online store with a friend. I do hope some of you guys will drop by and learn more about it! 

Basically the ''blogshop'' we've opened up is not just an ordinary clothes selling store, its a shop selling Japanese candy. Or to be even more specific, its a do-it-yourself assortment of sushi like-candy imported all the way from Japan. 

Its called ''Popin Cookin'', and its got loads of different flavours as well from grapes to strawberries with gummy bear-like texture.

Its really interesting coz its not just ANY conventional candy. For example, you can actually make stuff like this from scratch!!! These candies are supposed to be toys for children, but young adults can have fun with them as well! <3 

This is know as Popin Cookin Sushi Set 

Here are snippets of the tutorial for making these sushi sets from scratch! Its very simple and easy to do, all the sushi is already pre-made in powder form; all you have to do is just add water and hey presto!! Instant gummi sushi! 

This is to make rice 

This is to make fish roe 

Doesn't it look exactly like the real thing? Japan technology is amazing!!!

****DELIVERY****: Delivery is international and postage fees depends on each country. Its US8 per box (not including postage) , but we've got a 3 packs promotion on going so do check it out heart,valentine,love

We actually do COD but only for Malaysian customers but only within Klang Valley. Its MYR 27 (not inclusive of postage fees) 

I would really appreciate it if you guys took the time to check out the blog for a more comprehensive tutorial and encyclopedia available here: 

and the official shop page: 

Until then, have an awesome day peeps!

Christmas pop-up cards

Is it just me or does anyone else feels that Christmas seems to come A LOT earlier every year? I mean like its crazy, all the malls have started playing Christmas songs and putting up christmas trees a lot earlier than ''25 days before christmas!''

And I have to admit I've been caught by the bug too. I've already started buying christmas cards in november @.@ (pai seh)

But these were too good to be true!! I was damn kau excited when I found them, they are like the prettiest Christmas cards I've ever seen, and way too good to pass up. I've already bought a few to stock up for when December comes along to post to friends and family :) :) :)


Forgot the name of this japanese character but I super love their collection of stuff!

My Melody Christmas card <3 Absolute hearts, I know which friend I'm giving this for already lolz.

This is one of my personal favourites too, it reminds me of how New York looks like from the movies during winter ...



As for this next one I think i'll post it back to my family. Isn't it so real?


These are a few of my favourite things!

Somewhere over the rainbow, there lies a cake

There's this cake going around that's driving me absolutely crazy with rainbow fever.....

and I really really really really really (echoes another 500 times) WANT ONE!!!

It looks so amazingly delicious! Ok, maybe it'd be ridiculously sweet and make my teeth change to certain shades of colours every few seconds what with the obvious massive amount of food colouring.....but but... doesn't it just look absolutely yummy?

There's this girl , who has a tutorial on her blog on how to make one.

Too lazy to bake though. It must take like forever from the looks of it . I'm looking for a place where I can just buy a slice without ordering the entire cake (I've found some online but its all for a 1.5kg cake which is a bit ridiculous for one person)

Strangely reminds of an edible art palette.

BB cream reviews: Etude house & Kiss Me

I think I'm gonna move my blog to include make-up reivews from now on because I really feel that Malaysia has hardly anyone giving reviews on make up you can find in Watsons and Guardian which can be a real BITCH.

I do keep trying to find reviews for certain products but sometimes it's really hard as I know there's just such a wide span of make up its hard to review every single one. And its a real put-downer when you've been eyeing that makeup off the counter for ages, paid rm50 for it and only to find out the damn thing doesn't work =___= 

Coz let's face it, stuff you buy and try on the spot always looks a lot better than when you decide to bring it back home. 

So here's by review on the popular BB cream that's been going around a lot lately. 

Tbh, I LOOOVEEEEE BB creams. I think their God's gift to womanfolk. I started using it 2 years ago after my friend intro-ed to me, and I did notice that my pimples are a lot smaller and fewer. My skin had less freckles since I was wearing a thick layer of SPF everyday which is an ingredient in BB creams. 

Etude House was my first ever BB cream

Photobucket Its got a lovely, creamy texture and covers up flaws extremely well. The only downside is that I have combination skin, so after a few hours my forehead and nose area tend to get a little oily which is annoying as I have to touch up often. It probably might work better on someone who has dry skin coz my friend doesn't have this problem at all.

Cost is reasonable as well (during sales). I got this at half price for only RM30. After the Etude House BB cream finished, I tried using Japan's BB cream called ''KISS ME: Heroine make-up''. The tag-line is damn cute, saying that a heroin must always look good no matter through rain or shine, her makeup must stay on.

H Bought at Watsons for RM55. Overall though, I do prefer Kiss Me coz even though I'd have to admit the coverage isn't as fantastic as Etude House's BB cream, at least it doesn't leave me with an oil-coated forehead after 3 hours. Such a turn off!!!! Plus, the texture is a lot more liquid that Etude House BB which is much more suitable for my skin type. Photobucket

After layering all that BB cream on, I usually put on powder to ''set'' the BB cream. This is so that your BB cream can last A LOT longer. I'm now trying out this brand called Essence Photobucket This brand was dirt cheap for me for only RM14, its a hell of a bargain. However, you do get what you pay for.


Note, it is loose powder, so I have to buy one of those big makeup brushes to apply it on. I felt the powder wasn't ''fine'' enough as if I put a wee too much that day, it tends to make my face look a tad too powdery. Overall, not bad, but I wouldn't exactly buy this again despite the price as the coverage isn't that fantastic. 

Erm, forgot to include this beforehand (hey, its my first thorough make up post) , I apply concealer on my undereyebags. I use Kate (Japan) concealer. Photobucket I I have serious badass eyebags like BIG time, but unfortunately this concealer hard does help if at all :( Here is a picture of me after applying BB cream, concealer, and loose powder.

I know this post is crazy long but I hope its been a tad bit of help to some of you at least! :)

cutesy stuff from Japan

bought these at Miffplus @ ss15 Subang Jaya quite a while ago. I'm a sucker for all useless and cute stuff you get from Japan. These are actually ''keychains'' and other numerous thing you get when you play the egg-machine game. You'd never know what you might end up getting!

This was RM10, original series of Mickeymouse shaped food :)


This was Selina''s, got hers at RM20. Little Twin stars are super rare for you fans out there


We had no idea what we might get!!!


Yay!! pancake mickey mouse!!!!!!


The other collection in the series. I think mine's the best but if I had gotten the ''crepe'' would be equally happy as well :)


so effin real I feel like I can almost taste the butter
