Semi Permanent Makeup | 6D Korean Mist Eyebrow

Why do you want a semi-permanent makeup embroidery (Eyebrow, eyeliner, lip)? You can cut short the time used for makeup, it is not like tattoo, the colour is on the outer layer of the skin, and will shed slowly in months. They look super natural. The best part is the color does not smear making you look like a panda! A person's facial impression depends on the shape of the eyebrows, according to Chinese beliefs and superstition, the eyebrows will affect one's luck.

It should be done by a trained technician/ makeup artist. You can choose your preferred shape, density considering the advice by the expert of course. For brows, the technician will draw the shape of the eyebrow with an eyebrow pencil, then apply anesthetic cream to numb the area. Finally, the technician uses a properly sterilized embroidery blade to start shaping. The top layer of the skin is then scraped and, with delicate single strokes, the selected dye/colour will be applied to fill up the sparse spaces to make the eyebrows look fuller. The process should take about 1.5-2 hours.
The result is amazing

They look so natural like real brows

You can choose your preferred shape, density

Months after customer's crystal lips embroidery, color still stays natural. The benefit is you don't have to wear (and ingest the lipstick), as the color stays there for some time.

Beach-fronting Garden Wedding at Lone Pine Hotel Penang

There's something magical about saying 'I do' against the backdrop of the sparkling sea with the setting sun as witness and tall, graceful trees as the audience. However walking on sand may not be too pleasant if you are all dressed up, particularly for ladies on heels. With its rolling lawn which fringes the sandy beach and sea beyond as the venue for wedding ceremony and reception, The Garden at Lone Pine Hotel is your perfect area.

Outdoor solemnization or al fresco ROM/  wedding parties, Lone Pine’s famous beachfronting stretch of lawn can seat up to 350 people (35 round tables of 10 each) where casuarina branches sway overhead and the ceiling is sky-high.

Their service and the wedding food received mixed reviews. Proper planning with the hotel's wedding personnel is very crucial. Benedict and his team has shown experience of hosting weddings, they provided excellent customer service.

Lone Pine is the first beach hotel on Batu Ferringhi Beach and it dates back to the 1940's. The colonial-influenced design of this white architecture creates a charming backdrop for photography. Amid Casuarina trees in the garden, white sandy beach and the scenic blue sea, couples who love the outdoor will find this place very attractive. | Jan 2014 | Aug 2016

Dear Benedict & Team
We would just like to say thank you so much for all your helps and efforts in supporting us to plan and host our wedding in Lone Pine. Your swift response to emails and kind patience with us made planning a wedding from overseas as smooth as possible. We only met with you and all other suppliers a few days before the wedding day. Yet, it was a very good meeting to finalise our plan, as everyone came prepared and knew our requirement. The fact that you have worked with other suppliers previously meant that there was a very good team dynamism and good communications both during the meeting and on the actual wedding day - we cannot emphasise the importance of this! You have definitely shown experience of hosting weddings. We would like to thank you Benedict personally for your excellent customer service. You had been very understanding and considerate and definitely understood the stress of organising a wedding from overseas!
We love the tall pine trees of the hotel, which was the reason we picked this location for our small garden wedding :) the location was the perfect setting for all the decorations we planned with Antiga.
Also, special thanks to Elizabeth Chin who made the check-in of our special guests as smooth as possible. She knew the stress of final preps prior to the wedding and had been very considerate.
All in all, thank you for ensuring our stay and our big day as smooth, as pleasant and as memorable as possible.

It was a lovely weekend and one of the most magical moments in my cousin's life to cherish with her Prince Charming. It was really a memorable and romantic garden wedding with the sunset backdrop in the lovely evening. The setting of gentle wind blowing across the crystal clear sea, the trees swaying in the wind of idyllic spot

Good for staying, but NOT recommended for a wedding reception dinner, poor judgement in allocating slide (it was crookedly presented), coffees were not served at last course according to menu, do not expect their fine dining is like restaurant.. So that you won't be disappointed.

The award-winning 5-star Lone Pine Hotel is infused with colonial spirit & idyllic charm. This lavish Batu Ferringhi property is the only first-class boutique hotel in the area & is one of Penang’s legendary hotels. Amid Casuarina trees along the beautiful garden, nature lovers will enjoy the flora, & luxuriant landscape of trees. The grand dame is also recognised for their outstanding garden weddings; with the Casuarina trees sheltering its luscious garden along the beach, it certainly attracts many couples to celebrate & share their unique event.

M Boutique Hotel Ipoh | Vintage Wedding

M Boutique allows their hotel as a premise for Pre Wedding Photography but is limited to one couple from Sunday to Thursday daily. All couples who would like to use the Premise for Pre Wedding Photography have to take a room (Superior Room). Keep Gallery Wedding Studio is a Preferred Partner of M Boutique Hotel Ipoh.

The concept of the place is called urban vintage. The idea is that this is a property that would gel with the heritage and culturally rich city that surrounds it. Many of the fixtures, such as chandeliers and even the furniture, were specially customized.

“The concept of the place is called urban vintage and is the result of plenty of research and help of a visual merchandiser we work closely with,” says general manager Lloyd Gan. “We wanted something that would gel with the heritage and culturally rich city that surrounds it.” Gan says many of the fixtures, such as chandeliers and even the furniture, were specially customised.

Rustic Photography @ Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Serdang

From a small agricultural school in 1931, UPM is now a leading learning and Research University in Malaysia. Previously known as Universiti Pertanian Malaysia, UPM offers studies in agriculture, agro-bio and science. The Serdang main campus is huge. In it there is never ending land area for various agricultural farms. Some of the places for photography include: cow grazing and dairy farm, Bukit Ekspo UPM, mosque, deer farm, Equestrian Centre, Muzium Warisan Melayu UPM, pine tree farm, Faculty of Engineering.

Charge for any shooting activity is RM100 per hour with minimum 2 hours session. Any inquiries and booking can be made through official letter to Chief Executive Officer or phone call and email to En. Abdul Rahim at 03-8947 1161 or email at With the convenience of email, who writes official letter anymore these days, right?

The main roads are tarred. The off-road section should not be missed as it takes one through rustic sights. Most of this section is laterite with the tail end section being grassy. Lembu Tenusu is a cow farm where cows are bred for milk. Deers at the Deer Farm are fairly tamed, in fact they are more afraid of people than people of them. Still do not go too close to them and view from a safe distance. The horses at the Equestrian Centre are friendly but sometimes can be over-friendly, biting and pulling on your clothes. The heritage Malay kampong houses at the Muzium Warisan Melayu (Malay Heritage Museum) are old houses from other states that had been dismantled and rebuilt at the new location. They can be viewed by the public from the outside only.
Mar 2015
Then we drove to the farm ( ladang) not far away from the main campus. At first, we wish to enter the farm area to look for the famous tree ( so famous in MVs and drama, especially ghost drama I have no idea why), but the fence was locked up so we ended up to visit the ladang ternakan with cows.

The BanQuet Restaurant (三川楼), Kuching

Unfamiliar with the wedding venue choices in the cat city (Kuching), Sarawak, I had to perform a more thorough search for the available and popular options there. I came across the Banquet Chinese restaurant located at the Third Exchange Commercial Centre. This contemporary structured restaurant is a pleasant venue for your wedding reception or engagement party. A stand-alone building with its own waterfront esplanade and lush landscaping, the Banquet is one of the most preferred locations for wedding events. The biggest hall could accommodate up to 55 tables. 

Its team of creative chefs is there to impress you with their vast menu of Chinese dishes. They change their menu selections from time to time to ensure that the re-visiting customers get a taste of their new flavor and scrumptious delight. The wedding food is yummy, their dessert especially. Couples were happy with the portion being served on the wedding reception. Generally the feedback has been positive, and the encounter with this restaurant was usually a pleasant one (other than the dummy cake)... I love the arrangement of the ceiling down lights that look like a bunch of pretty stars.
I have been curious how different is the wedding food in the east. I have been to Kuching and savored the kolo mee which you can find practically everywhere. How about food at wedding banquet? Similar cooking method and taste?

Jul 2010
Decided earlier on that we would do a bit of DIY work on the cards, coz the free card design that was provided by The Banquet was nothing to shout about…and the mom has refrained me from choosing from their nicer designs and topping up $$ for it. She says, it’s gonna end up in the bin also anyways…no need to waste this kinda $$. True, but still…can’t stand having cards that look too ordinary le. So what we did was to buy nice pretty ribbons to line the backbone of the card and an angel stamp puncher (only $2 from Daiso…it’s a steal!) to add life to the front of the card.

The Banquet has become one of the most popular restaurant for wedding receptions. Last week, I have attended another wedding dinner here. I can't remember how many times have I come here for wedding dinner. All I can say is A LOT! Each time I'm here, the menu are different. I must say, I salute their creativity to create different types of set menu for occasion like wedding receptions.
The food was yummy, but we didn’t get to eat much...
Compilation of forum comments @ Apr 2010
Before that we hard the portion isn't big thus I keep on remind them and we are happy about the portion on that night =) Both HB & me like Banquet's dessert. For the dummy cake set provided by Banquet .. mmm if for the old one really not that nice and they only give you a small slice of cake to cut. Maybe you can get them to send you the dummy cake set's photos for you to choose =) I'm having my wedding dinner at The Banquet. Actually you can negotiate the corkage for the beer to RM10, coz that was what they gave my parents when they asked. Venue chosen is The Banquet Hall, I prefer the environment there. I have pleasant and happy experience with them.

It is a sweet and simple venue for a minimalistic wedding celebration. The design is not too fancy nevertheless this place is special and modern in its own way. You are entitled to a list of banquet benefits such as complimentary invite cards, dummy cake, champagne glasses stack, the usual stuffs. Not sure what are the terms though, have to check with them. The invitation cards are nothing to shout about - rather ordinary looking.
