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.

“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.

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 rahim.upmholdings@gmail.com.

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.

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?

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.

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.
