5 Things That You Need To Eat at Khazanah Sajian Desa Buffet Dinner, Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar!

Ramadhan is coming this 6th May, and there are still a few days left to replace our last year Iftar, so it's a note to me to get it done right away. Let's get this opportunity to discover Ramadhan buffet that will run throughout the Muslim holy month.

This is my first time trying out the buffet at Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar, and it was pretty impressive to see more than 150 varieties in front of your eyes. I tried to eat and taste as much as I can but I was defeated on my fourth plate, so here's what I think that you shouldn't miss out at the Ramadhan buffet!

1. Western Cuisine


I know that if you want to be a buffet expert, don't take carbs first! But, take note that you can eat according to what you want in a small amount so you can taste almost everything (a portion is a key). I took a baked spaghetti and a white sauce spaghetti just to feel how was the western cuisine like in general. 

So far, both of them are good especially baked one, not that cheesy and still good to eat when it's kind of cold.

2. Dessert Corner


I love this corner! Especially where all the Malay kuih located. They have a really vast range of cake choices! I grab some tapai, creme brulee, bahulu, kuih lapis and some sticky rice ball. The least favourite is the creme brulee because it's too sweet for me but other than that is perfect!

3. Fresh Charcoal Grilled Seafood Galore!

I take time to talk to one of the chefs there, and I heard this corner is open since last year. They've got a variety of seafood and most of the time I can see that they cook to order. 

We talk about cuttlefish, stingray, shells and lots of other seafood to choose from. I get the cuttlefish, and it was delicious! The burnt smell and taste of charcoal just absorbed into it.

4. Nasi Ikan

This is a famous dishes that you need to try! Like the chef said, it's one of the favourite recipes that everyone needs to try, especially if you are a first timer here. Nasi Ikan is a mix of rice with three kinds of fish - sea bass, catfish and tilapia.

If you think it would be too fishy, fret not, it smells so lovely and tastes really good too. My mom would mix leftover fish and make it into bergedil, and for me generally, Nasi Ikan tastes like a home cook for me.

5. Get Your Durian!

Save the best for last! Durian is a very exotic fruit for some people, but I find it as a comfort fruit instead. For me, it's a get-together fruit where you open one, take one chunk and just dig in and talk with others. It's a sharing fruit per se.

I like that they only allowed people to eat on the terrace and it's open at 9PM every night. So, make sure to empty your stomach for Durian!

This is some of the things that I think you should try when you are at Link. I love to be very strategic when it comes to buffet, to eat worth the pay but at the same time don't overeat because the break the fast happened during Maghrib prayer and you don't want to throw up all the food. So make sure to eat some before and grab some more while enjoying the live Ghazal performances throughout the night!

Flight Review: 1 Hour Flight to Langkawi from Kuala Lumpur with Malaysia Airlines


The first impression matters even if it just one-hour flight journey from your hometown! As a passenger, we all need excellent service and to be a good passenger itself, so, it's a win-win situation. Let's see if Malaysia Airlines is up to the par, enough for me to enjoy my short hour work trip flight! 


Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
I like where it's an open space because I feel like I just came out from my own personal plane.

In Kuala Lumpur, we have two airports, KLIA1 was the first one, and KLIA2 is merrier than the other one. Personally, I love KLIA2 because if I arrived airport early, I can hang around and ate at Family Mart or do a window shopping. If you would like to go back forth from this airport,  you can buy KLIA transit pass, if you are diligent enough. Let me know if you disagree or agree with me regarding this in the comment down below!

Services, Amenities & Comfort

To be honest with you, I am still a noob regarding different airlines besides Air Asia. For me to have an opportunity to fly beside them, it's a dream came true because their flight ticket is out of my budget. So, yay for a bargain and free stuff!

I heard good and bad things about Malaysia Airlines. Some of them are, their leg space is good, their flight fare is included with 20kg baggage which for me is fantastic because there is no hidden charge. By the way, I used the check-in because I bought a cookware set for my own home this year, but I need to pay for 10% tax out of my expenditure because I didn't stay there for minimum 24 hours.

Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
Langkawi again! Prepare your sunscreen.

The total amount that was paid for this flight is RM217.98 (fare - RM167, Tax: RM16 YQ, RM0.98 D8, RM22 MY, RM2 H8 and RM10.02 D8) - 12 January 2019 to 13 January 2019.

Everything went smoothly since it's a local flight! I only need to show my identity card, and it's a piece of cake. I have been to the local destination by flight a couple of times since it's my own hometown, it's comfortable for me.

The service was okay, I still remembered that all the flight attendants greet us warmly, but you are on your own once the plane departs. The leg space was okay too, not as huge as I was also expected, maybe because it's a local flight.

Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
For a petite girl, the leg space was okay.

Entertainment & WiFi


Alright, I clearly know that I cannot compare this flight to Emirates because of the duration of the trips, it will be unfair. So clearly, this flight don't have any WiFi that I can use since...come one... it's a one hour flight.

Regarding in-flight entertainment, they do have a screen in front of you, like it depends on how you know to use it or not. I didn't realise at first, so from KL to Langkawi I just scrolling Instagram on my phone and knowing that it's a dumb move, then I switch to just looking at videos on my phone gallery. *sigh*

Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
This is when I get stuck. 
Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
Okay, let's just take the picture first and just staring at the window.
But, I urged to discover the screen from Langkawi back to Kuala Lumpur. So, I just press on and ask the flight attendants where should I plug my own handsfree (they don't provide one). Dude, it just beside me the whole time and I said thank you so much to him, and in my head, I said to myself, "Lili, why you don't have a common sense?."

Honestly, I don't remember what movie I watched, but I know that I didn't get to finished that one movie at all because of the short period flight. But, overall they have a great wide range of new films, and you can make the screen small and scroll to discover more.

Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
I tried to remember what movie I watched but I just can't.

Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
Just want to tell you guys that you can plug your heads free here.

Food

When you received your electronic flight tickets, you will notice this:

The meal will be served on flights where the flying time is more than 60 min, meal service may differ on MASwings and codeshare flights.

Make sure to eat before or after, whatever that suit you. Because I don't and I regret it because I only had peanuts and orange juice in flight. Don't misunderstand me, Malaysia Airlines peanuts are great, I even want to bring some home which I did but just hope that at least I could try one of their in-flight dinings to other countries after this. 

Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
I always bring a bottle with me whenever I go, so I can refill and go sippy sippy.
Malaysia Airlines Langkawi Curitan Aqalili
This is not enough to fill this girl's stomach.
___________

MH1446 & MH1145, I will remember you even it's for a short trip because it's my first time to fly with Malaysia Airlines. But, to be honest, it doesn't have that much impact as Emirates due to the short duration, but I would definitely want to hop on for a long hour flight. What do you think about Malaysia Airlines? Do you love it? Or it just meh? Share your thoughts on the comment down below!

Living The Best Life: Met Q2HAN & Hi Touch With Ong Seong Wu in Malaysia!


I named my Saturday as my entertainment day because at 3PM I went to Q2HAN meet and greet and at 6PM, I rushed to Ong Seong Wu 1st Fan Meeting in Malaysia! Let's see how I can bring you to this journey with these remarkable and enjoyable events.

Q2HAN MEET AND GREET AT GRID SS15

I am so freaking happy when I saw the news that Qwon & Qjin are coming to Malaysia and doing meet and greet (M&G)! I followed them for a while now and seeing them did M&G at Singapore and Indonesia makes me like 'Erghhh, it's so closed yet so far'! 

So, I drove to Grid Space and found parking, arrived around 1PM and lined up. I have to admit that it's hot, but I met a couple of new friends, and we talked along the way until they open the gate, so the hotness it's kind-of-forgotten.

They are very friendly!

Gonna keep this as the best memories this year!
q2han meet and greet in malaysia curitan aqalili
Nice to meet you Jay, Mama QQ and Dava!
They arrived quite early because they need to do some quick Q&A or they called it Media Session - so yeah, when the gate was open at 3PM, the aircond just save my life. 

Initially, I have so many questions that I want to ask when I met them, but I forgot every single thing because I was too happy and nervous at the same time. Like they are an inspiration for me to keep going and their videos just made my day. Truthfully! 

I took a few pictures with them, give them some present. Honestly, I feel like I need to give something, but I don't know what to get them. Since I did my pre-wedding photo shoot at Muzium Bank Negara, I get them a sketchbook, and a card - all of the covers are design by a local artist, and I think it's going to be cool to show them the great designs. With a Rice Milk Soap from Thailand because I just came back from Kelantan and I want to share the goodness of the soap. 


Overall, it was such a happy moment from me because I get to meet them after I talked about them a lot with my friends and also post about them on my social media. Hopefully one day, I will get to do an interview with them or something for my blog, just need to think some of the ideas and plan it thoroughly. #mybucketlist.

Thank you for the gifts and ice cream!

ONG SEONG WU 1ST FAN MEETING IN MALAYSIA

After saying goodbye to Qwon, Qjin and Mama QQ (it was a sad moment), I rushed to Axiata Arena to attend Ong Seong Wu 1st Meeting. This is my first time going to an organised fan meeting in a stadium, I went to Seventeen before in Pavilion, but this one is different.

The event started at 6PM and ended around 8PM, and since we get to Hi-Touch with him, it's officially finished around 9-ish something. The fan meeting was okay, and it's worth it if you really like the idol because of the interaction, question and answers are kinds of intimate and long. It was exciting to see the events were being run through and for me it's a new thing because I only went to concerts before not the official fan meeting.

Thank you @nuriyarisa for the tickets!

One with the flower boy!

I just knew about Hi-Touch yesterday and oh boy I got to high five and saw Ong Seong Wu really up closed - like seriously - his skin is flawless and bright! At that moment I just want to his skincare routine.

To be honest, I almost missed high five him because all of the staff and securities were wearing a black shirt which same as him and I got confused. So, yeah, I kind of want to laugh because I almost missed him and showed a really shocked face. Oh yeah, and he wore a glove because in Malaysia it's known as an Islamic country, but I also want to say that Malaysia is still a melting pot of culture and races. 

I think it's cool that he did that plus we cannot to document any memories of the Hi Touch or else, we cannot experience the Hi Touch. I think it's also best to not record it to avoid any misunderstanding or what I called 'Mak Cik or Pak Cik Bawang' regarding K-POP. Because you know, everyone has their own inspiration and some of the songs might keep them through a hard time, we don't know. I'm personally okay and very open with them loving the idol as long it was not too over (FYI, everyone that I saw followed the rules and very calm yesterday). Everything has to do in moderate.

Overall, it was a good experience despite very tight security and a loud voice from the management. I just hope that Winner will do the fan meeting in Malaysia soon but let's leave the shouting, away. Finger cross!

ONG SEONG WU 1ST FAN MEETING IN MALAYSIA Curitan Aqalili
We had fun! He was such a funny and cutie during the fan meeting. Love when he did the popping dance!

I'm so happy to share these two events with the readers because for me it's a dream come true meeting Q2HAN and more to a new experience with Ong Seong Wu Fan Meeting. Plus, I want to record or write good and bad memories on this blog because that's why this blog is called Curitan Aqalili.

These Product Help To Prevent My Acne: SPRIN-KLES Refreshing pH Balancing Face Toner & Mist!

Something interesting just pops on my Insta Story, and I asked my friend who invented the product, what it is? It turns out to be a pH skincare product, and it's my first time to discover about Acidic Ionized Water. Thank you, Iqaa Lee, for the opportunity, and if you want to see the before and after picture, please continue reading this blog post!

SPRIN-KLES Refreshing pH Balancing Face Toner & Mist Curitan Aqalili
pH is a scale of measure from 1 to 14 that tells you how acidic a product is. A neutral pH is 7. Anything lower than 7 is considered acidic while anything higher than 7 is considered alkaline or basic. Your skin is actually naturally more on the acidic side with a pH of 4.2 to 5.6, and remains at this pH to defend itself from bad bacteria, which can multiply in more alkaline conditions. - The Klog, 2017.
pH level is something that I adore learning while I was in high school, it's good to know if the product is too acidic or alkaline for you. I have used this one pH face wash brand before, and it was too drying for me which makes me a little bit sceptical about trying out more of the product based on pH level. But, let just dig in and see the differences.

WHAT ARE SPRIN-KLES REFRESHING PH BALANCING TONER & MIST?

  • SPRIN-KLES Refreshing pH Balancing Face Mist
    • pH 6.0
    • Helps to balance your skin pH level
    • Brightens up your skin for quick beauty tune-up
    • Great touch-up for puffy eyes
    • Keep your skin hydrated
    • Makes your skin feel refreshing
  • SPRIN-KLES Refreshing pH Balancing Toner
    • pH 2.5
    • Helps to balance your skin pH
    • Helps to tighten up your skin
    • Makes your skin feels smooth
    • Helps to prevent acne
  • Benefits of Acidic Ionized Water
    • Control the growth of acne-causing by bacteria
    • Helps to slow down the signs of ageing, wrinkles and saggy skin

INGREDIENT OR INGREDIENTS?

Both of this product only have Acidic Ionized Water with pH level. It is a minimalist ingredient and easy for me to focus more on telling more about it. The product is produced by machine from Japan technology known as Enagic Japan (2568965), and the process of manufacturing the water is called electrolysis.

HOW TO USE THE TONER & MIST?

  • SPRIN-KLES Refreshing pH Balancing Face Mist
    • Use as a face mist throughout the day.
  • SPRIN-KLES Refreshing pH Balancing Toner
    • Use day & night after cleansing your skin
    • Pour onto a cotton pad
    • Softly pat it into your acne skin
    • Or you can leave it around 5-10 minutes
    • You can use it twice, three times a week OR every day on acne area only.
  • How to store the products
    • Acidic Ionized Water is sensitive to sun or air, she used a dark bottle to prevent the water from exposed, so the product still saves the functions.

DO I LIKE IT? WOULD I REPURCHASE IT?

My initial thoughts are I don't put any much high hopes about the products since my acne (due to stress or maybe menstrual) wasn't budging at all. At first, I can feel a bit of burning sensation on my skin, just during the first time of using the product.

But, after a few days, I can see my acne just shrink out one by one. Honestly, I used the toner more than mist, and I put it all over my face. I know I wasn't supposed to that, but that way works for me just because there is acne all over my skin, either tiny bumps or scars or new acne just want to pop out. So, just pat it on your acne area yea!

I cannot deny that the toner works best for me, but I also follow up by moisturising it up since my skin is getting quite tight after using the toner. When there is no acne, I won't be using it since there is no enemy on my skin aka acne.

The mist is okay for me, it does freshen up my skin and it useful when I was feeling sleepy while doing some works. Honestly, I saw more changes in my skin while using the toner. 

If you smell both of the products, the toner is quite dense rather than the mist one which just smells like plain water. Although both of them have different pH level, they have the same functions - to disinfect your skin and balance my skin pH level. I heard it's important to check the pH level in your skincare because if it's too acidic or too alkaline, it may be one the cause to your breakouts. 

So, the final verdict - Yes, I would like to repurchase the toner again because I can see tremendous changes. Mist? Just a maybe, depends on how diligent I am to bring around in my bag.
