Grand Launch of Dior's La Collection Privée at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

And the grand opening of Dior Boutique at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur! June was such a good month isn't? 



In conjunction of the grand launching of Christian Dior's La Collection Privée in Malaysia and also the grand opening of Dior Boutique at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, celebrities and medias and honourable guests were invited to this Dior grand launch party held at Pavilion's Centre Court.

So prettily Dior!




After being the tower among my friends for so long, finally it is my time to be the "bridge" between these two tall models. 











You know, there's something fascinating about Dior that attract ladies to fall in love with this global-known brand. Founded in 1946 by Monsieur Christian Dior, till this day, this French luxury brand is one of the iconic brand in fashion and beauty industry with their own lead of fashion style and beauty products.



Dior's fragrance started in year 1947 with the iconic Miss Dior which was named after the founder's sister - Catherine. Ever since then, Dior's perfume never fail to amazed their customer with all the passion infused by the couterier-perfumer than founded the label. Monsieur Christian Dior's love and passion towards flower were expressed by the creation of famous and significant perfumes such as Diorama in 1949, Diorissimo in 1956 and J'Adore in 1999.



It's been 3 years since Dior Malaysia tried getting Dior's prestige fragrance line La Collection Privée to be sold in Malaysia and finally, here comes the grand launch of La Collection Privée on our Malaysian soil! Congratulations Dior!








La Collection Privée, created by Dior's Perfumer-Creator - Monsieur Francois Demachy, the 13 fragrances in the line represents the essence of Dior's history, each with their own story to tell about Dior in its own timeline. Each and every unique scent in La Collection Privée's fragrances are created by the medium-scents like rare Iris Florentina, Somali Incense, Indonesian Oud Wood, Indonesian Patchouli and Ambergis from New Zealand. These exotic ingredients brings your senses to another time and space, just like how Monsieur Francois Demachy describes them: rare ingredients, daring olfactory statements and creations that knows no bounds. And this collection "reflects the freedom that only true luxury can provide, and is a delightful recreation for a Perfumer"






The 13 fragrances from Dior's La Collection Privée are as below:

Wanderlust, Solaris Mont Kiara

It's been more than a week since I'm back from Bangkok and my schedules are still super packed these days due to work, events, meet ups and of course, the most wonderful news of all - my sis Peiyue just gave birth to the cutest baby in the world!!! So proud of her!!! 



Okay, let's not get too distracted by the happy news. So last week me and my friends had a meet up and decided to dine at Wanderlust located at Solaris Mont Kiara. 

Blue and white! So Santorini, so vacation-ish! 




Interior of Wanderlust: 





Makes me wanna go for another vacation again!!! 



Wanderlust has a unique menu which combines cuisines from everywhere and trying to give your taste bud the impact of east meet west. 

Deep fried beetroot paired with mayonnaise. This is the first time I see people deep fried beetroot! It has a special taste which those beetroot lover definitely will find interesting. 



Beetroot Smoothies 




Curry chicken in Chinese Gua Bao. Deep fried Gua Baos are so crispy, when paired with the spice oriented curry chicken, it gave us a different feeling when eating the Man Tou-like Gua Bao. 



Pan Seared Salmon with Egg Omelette. Homemade tomato paste with a block of egg omelette and a huge block of fresh, tasty salmon. 




Tiger Prawn with salted egg pasta. This is yum yum for people who like salted egg dishes, someone like me! This dish is one of my favourite of Wanderlust. 



We ordered 2 main dishes for sharing among 3 pax and we were full! Despite that our tummy running out of spaces, skipping dessert is a big No-No! Hence desserts time:



Sago with Espresso and Cream. I thought sago is only meant for mango and honeydew desserts, didn't know that when combined with espresso shot and milk cream, sago desserts can become so unique and tempting! 




Tiramisu with Guinness Stout. Did you say Guinness Stout? Hell sure for it! Another groundbreaking creation to the Italian's traditional desserts. Different layers different texture but together they have the most fantastic texture and taste together. Who would've thought that stout can go so well with Tiramisu's cream and espresso. 




I had one of the most satisfying dinner at Wanderlust that night and were introduced to all those fusion dishes that never crossed my mind. If you are looking for something exciting in your meal, Wanderlust is the place to go!

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

A big thank you to my girl Lisa for giving me such awesome birthday gift that I've been wanted for some time - Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. 

And also a hankie from Innisfree! Thank you Lisa! 



I've been wanting to try clay mask ever since I heard the goodness of it - cleanse your pores so thoroughly and also help restore the firmness of your skin because of clean pores. I've know a makeup artist which he have such good skin texture he told me he uses clay mask very often to cleanse his skin. I hope Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask can give me a skin texture that everyone envy! 






Its texture is kinda gluey, although it's a bit hard to smoothen out the clay on skin but its extension is quite good, just a small amount can cover my whole face. Super saving clay mask! 




It took about 10minutes for the mask to be all dry, and during the dry out process, it's so cooling due to the volcanic mud of Jeju Island that has such a great cooling effect when apply on skin. I would say it is a type of clay mask that suit Malaysian women to cool off our skin under such hot weather. 



After first try 

Although the effect is not visible, but can see that redness of my skin is immediately cool off and also I can feel my skin is smoother. It also helps my skin to be able absorb all those skincare products I applied on face faster than before. I shall continue use and maybe update again about this super volcanic pore clay mask after some time using it. 



Once again thank you Lisa for giving me this wonderful birthday present! You know me best!
