Ramadhan’s rolling right around the corner and Nook at Aloft KL Sentral is offering a scrumptious spread of traditional Ramadhan favourites at its live action stations in addition to its buffet spread of local and international cuisine for diners to break fast during dinner.

With Nook’s kitchen recently certified Halal, the culinary team will be cooking up over 150 dishes to be dished out at the buffet for diners to enjoy this Ramadan. Created by Nook’s Sous Chef Ahmed Zaki bin Harun, the A-List buffet will feature these dishes on a rotational basis daily allowing guests to enjoy a variety of dishes for Ramadan.

This year’s buffet line are highlighted by the Nasi Ayam, Nasi Lemak and our personal favourite, the super tender and fragrant Nasi Kambing Sumbat. Patrons can also expect the Bubur Lambuk, the ultimate Ramadhan favourite, and a special drinks stall with ever popular local favourites like Air Bandung, Calamansi, Teh Tarik, Nescaffe Tarik, Sugar Cane juice, Soy Bean milk, Date juice and more.

The Slow Braised Beef Shin Rendang takes centre stage on the buffet line at Nook’s Carving Station. The rendang dish has been slow cooked for over 7 hours and seasoned generously with traditional Asian spices, making this a succulent treat for diners during the Ramadhan buffet.

Of course, no Ramadhan buffet is complete without curries and other local fares such as Ayam Percik, Ayam Masak Merah, Gulai Kambing, Gulai Itik, Crab Curry and Fish Head Curry. The Ayam Masak Merah has always been a childhood favourite of ours thus we were glad that it was well executed at Nook. The Crab Curry adds a rich and indulgent touch to the array of curries available.

Adding variety and colours to the buffet are dishes from Chinese, Indian and Western cuisines. Take your pick from Wok-friend Teriyaki Char Siew Chicken Fillet with Green Leek, Steamed Whole Sea Bass, Lamb Pot Pie, Seafood Mousaka and even Sarawak Laksa!

For dessert, indulge in an array of local favourites such as Dodol, Kuih Bahulu, ABC with Pulut Durian and an assortment of kuehs. The spread will also include Salted Caramel Brownies Slices, Marble Cheesecake Slices, Sago Gula Melaka as well as Hot Almond Cream with Roasted Almond Flakes amongst an array of sweet sensations to seal the deal.

Nook’s A-List Ramadhan Buffet is priced at RM135 nett per adult and is served daily from 29 May – 25 June 2017 for dinner from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. If you’re looking to book a spot at Nook’s Ramadhan Buffet, early bird vouchers are available at RM100 nett per voucher and at RM90 nett per voucher for purchases of 36 vouchers and more until 28 May 2017. For more information on Aloft KL Sentral, access here.

Julia Roberts is more than just a Pretty Woman. She’s the true OG of Hollywood’s natural beauties who has basically been slaying us since the day we were born.

People magazine has named Julia as the World’s Most Beautiful Woman once again, marking the actress’ fifth time in gracing the magazine’s cover since she first coveted the title 26 years ago. The 49-year-old starlet has previously claimed the cover spot in 2010, 2005, 2000 and 1991.

Roberts, who won an Academy Award for Erin Brockovich, says she is “very flattered” by the experience. She joked that she now gets bragging rights over good mate George Clooney, who has only been named Sexiest Man Alive twice. “I’m going to mention that in my Christmas card to the Clooneys this year,” she said.

Giphy

She was just 23 when she first appeared on the cover of the World’s Most Beautiful Woman issue in 1991, a year after Pretty Woman came out. “People say, ‘Oh, when Pretty Woman came out it must have really changed your life,’ and it’s kind of become this joke, but the truth is I was out of town when Pretty Woman came out,” she says in the cover story.

“I was in another movie in this tiny little town that was showing Star Wars in its first run. I remember reading ‘Pretty Woman came out this weekend and made this much money’ and I thought, ‘Is that a lot of money? Is that good? Is that great?’ I didn’t really know.”

Though a number of us have now become desensitised to Instagram posts from celebrities with a product-pushing agenda, it’s evident that many are still oblivious and left in the dark about it. For that reason, the U.S. government is stepping in to crack down on sponsored content.

Instagram Photo

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is going all out to educate celebrities and influencers on the ethical practices for promoting products on social media, and to remind them about transparency. Know how celebrities bury the obscured #ad shoutout below lengthy captions and in the throngs of hashtags? They can’t do that anymore.

Instagram Photo

Amongst the FTC’s other new regulations include disclosing “material connection” with the brands promoted, revealing “a business or family relationship, a payment, or the gift of a free product”, and being clear and conspicuous about disclosures when it comes to endorsements.

Instagram Photo

In addition, social media influencers and celebrities are to “disclose any material connection above the ‘more’ button” on Instagram, since social media users can only see the first three lines of a caption before having to click for more on mobile. Will these influencers comply and ditch their shady behaviour? Only time will tell..

We believe this is a great move that should have been implemented a long time ago. Perhaps it’s time for the Malaysian government to pick up on this too? We all know how notoriously sneaky these influencers can be..

Libresse Wants You To Get Real About Sanitary Pad Ads https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/144575/libresse-wants-get-real-sanitary-pad-ads https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/144575/libresse-wants-get-real-sanitary-pad-ads#respond Fri, 21 Apr 2017 04:58:55 +0000 https://www.lipstiq.com/?p=144575 Everyone has blind spots.

Everyone has blind spots. We all go about doing things everyday out of habit and accepting things as they are without being aware if they are REAL or NOT. Sanitary pad ads with girls wearing white, laughing and skipping proves the blind spot notion that women aren’t at all affected by their periods, even if there’s a torrential menstrual waterfall and stain scares.

Which is why Libresse launched the ‘Let’s Get Real’ campaign to raise awareness and trigger women to rethink what is depicted as “realities” in sanitary pad ads as well as their period experiences. The campaign also gives women a platform to start the conversation on the topic which breaks myths of it being a taboo subject.

Using a series of online polls which attracted more than 5,000 respondents, Libresse shines a spotlight on honest consumer insights that acknowledge the challenges and hardships women encounter on their periods.Based on these results, the campaign paves the way for more relevant communication and more realistic representations of what women go through.

The common features shown in sanitary pad ads today is a flurry of girls laughing, dancing or skipping around with joy, girls wearing white like period stains aren’t a thing, girls waking up bright and cheerful and even being super active with  sports during the time of the month?

Obviously, these scenarios aren’t familiar with any of us who go through periods because well, every woman has a tale to tell about her period experience, and it can be very different from how it’s portrayed. In fact, nine out of 10 respondents feel that most sanitary pad ads are missing the mark. But if the ads aren’t realistic, then what is?

“The period experience is different for every woman – while some lucky few are not affected at all, most women are affected in some way so it would be good for ads to be more relevant. After all, when a woman is feeling tired, in pain from cramps and not sleeping well, we are not going to be cheerful or energetic,” says special celebrity guest Adibah Noor.

“While we don’t let it get in our way, our period experience is definitely not fun. So why should it be presented that way?”

Popular vlogger Shazreen Fazlynda agrees – “I never really questioned femcare ads before, but once I did, all the misrepresentations jumped out at me because my reality is far different! As a mom, my usual day involves rushing around between shoots and meetings with my baby in tow, regardless of cramps or tiredness.”

Supporting the effort to raise awareness on period misrepresentation, Shazreen has produced a video which aims to bring the ‘Let’s Get Real’ message to life.

But, hey, life goes on…women don’t let it get in the way of their responsibilities –seven in 10 women would go on to have a normal day or carry on as best they can, regardless of how they feel.

Nobody exemplifies this better than Petrina Thong, a 29-year-old Malaysian woman who embarked on a solo 13-month trip across 22 countries with only RM800 to her name. “I believe in questioning and breaking conventions, and I think it’s great for Libresse to raise awareness about sanitary pad ads – we should definitely take a second look and think about what’s being portrayed,” says Petrina.

While women know how to work their way around period discomforts, it seems that nine out of 10 women agree that pad ads should be more realistic.

Faye Yong, Marketing Director for Southeast Asia (Feminine Products), relates that consumers across Asia are becoming more discerning about the brands they use. According to research, today’s consumer wants brands that have character and personality; brands that build connections and tell relevant stories; brands that break down walls of misinformation, ignorance and inefficiencies. And as consumers, we’re on board with those findings.

Nora Danish may have just been a blushing bride a couple of weeks ago, but the actress is already making waves on Instagram with teasers of her fashion label’s Eid collection campaign shoot happening in the States!

No matter what anyone says about them, the Kardashian-Jenner clan has an indisputable influence that is a force to be reckoned with. Hence, it wasn’t surprising why fans were driven into a frenzy when sisters Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian West announced an upcoming Kylie Cosmetics collab on April 18.

Instagram Photo

Fast forward till now, we have all the deets on the Kylie Cosmetics x KKW collab in all its sexy glory. Comprising four shades (Kimberly – light brown nude, Kim – coral nude, Kiki – pink-toned nude and Kimmie – mauve nude), the lippies showcase an all-new crème liquid lipstick formula.

Instagram Photo

The gorgeous shades seem like they’d complement various skin tones, but what first drew us to the collection is the stunning milky millennial pink packaging that has a brushed matte finish. The 4-piece lippie set will be retaining for US$45, although no pricing has been announced for individual lippies.

Destroying Makeup Is Instagram’s Latest Way To Play With Expensive Beauty Products https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/144543/makeup-destruction-coolest-way-play-beauty-products https://www.lipstiq.com/2017/144543/makeup-destruction-coolest-way-play-beauty-products#respond Fri, 21 Apr 2017 03:16:14 +0000 https://www.lipstiq.com/?p=144543 If you’ve been meaning to clear out old beauty products that’s probably harmful now, mostly because they have expired, then you’d want to consider the newest trend in the beauty world: makeup destruction.

If you’ve been meaning to clear out old beauty products that’s probably harmful now, mostly because they have expired, then you’d want to consider the newest trend in the beauty world: makeup destruction. After all, you did shell out major dough for that highlighter palette, so this should be an interesting way to say goodbye.

Beauty News is a YouTube channel run by Hailey and Kat who have a series called The Makeup Breakup, where they destroy your favourite makeup products and weigh them to see if you really get your money’s worth.

Instagram Photo

In their videos, the two bloggers obtain perfectly intact eyeshadow, blush, or highlighter palettes, and then slowly quash them with metal tools.

Even though the videos may seem painful to watch, especially if you’re a makeup fan who’s on a budget, the bloggers are actually on a mission. After they clear the contents from the case, they also weigh the case to see if the product is really the weight the company claims it is.

Instagram Photo

For example, the duo weighed a Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon Blush palette before and after destroying it, only to find out that the actual weight of the product was 1.82 g heavier than it claimed to be. That was a pleasant surprise, considering that the palette is worth $70 (RM307).

Instagram Photo

Although this trend may not be for everyone, the next time you drop a fancy blush on the floor and it crumbles in its case, let Hailey and Kat’s videos be a reminder that broken makeup is still totally usable.

The duo then proceed to mash the product, mix it with a liquid, and press the contents back into the case so they can use the palette again. So it’s all good!

Instagram Photo

It’s like watching a slow, painful death of expensive beauty products. Thank god it’s not ours, though.

Uh oh, Katy Perry has caused an uproar for an offensive Instagram post of a Hindu goddess of death, Kali, who symbolises sexuality and love.

The 32-year-old singer captioned the image: “Current mood.” Evidently, she started being attacked by followers not long after for being “disrespectful” and “insulting”.

Instagram Photo

One Instagram user commented, “This is a shameful and offensive act. You can’t compare yourself with The Great Goddess KALI MAA.”

Some others said they have lost respect for the pop star, whereas another responded, “Are you serious? You’re using pics of our Goddesses as memes?”

One fuming fan even referred to her as a “b*tch”: “Don’t use our gods’ images to describe your mood. Your s***** mood matters nothing in front of God’s. I love your songs and I had respect for you, B****! Delete this post asap.. B**** @katyperry.”

Instagram Photo

Although Perry was raised in a conservative Christian household, she told Marie Claire in 2013 that she does not identify with any religion. “I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God.”

With that said though, let’s not forget that Perry married her then husband Russell Brand in 2010 during a private Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan. They even got matching Sanskrit tattoos reading, “Anuugacchati Pravaha,” meaning “Go with the flow”.

Good luck saving yourself out of this one, Katy..

If you thought Kylie Jenner lips are still in, you thought wrong. NewBeauty reports that a lip reduction is currently the new cringe worthy (v. v. cringe worthy) lip trend that’s been sweeping over social media.

According to New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Melissa Doft, who specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery, lip reduction procedures tend to be more popular in Asian countries. As Dr. Doft explains, the procedure involves “removing skin from the lips along the dry-wet border of the vermillion” and using stitches to create a new lip line.

Instagram Photo

Though lip reduction is done as an outpatient procedure, it’s still surgery. Patients are usually placed under local anesthesia which takes between 15-30 minutes per lip (depending on the amount of tissue to be removed) and the stitches remain in place for a week after which they’d either dissolve or removed manually.

The pain is tolerable but patients are still advised to eat a soft diet until the swelling recedes, which can take anywhere from a couple of days to a week.

Instagram Photo

Unlike the injections, the procedure is unsurprisingly pricier. While fillers can cost from $500 (about RM2000) and $2000 (about RM8,800) per syringe, lip reduction surgery could cost you anywhere between $1,000 (about RM4,500) to $3,000 (about Rm13,000).

The procedure is also permanent, unlike injections which typically dissolve within a year.

Instagram Photo

TBH, this trend seems pretty risky. Though the procedure is seemingly quick and easy, we can’t help but cringe at the thought of going under the knife to get a thinner pout. But hey, we’re not here to judge. But if you’re thinking about getting any procedure done, do your research and always see a highly trained, well-recommended and board certified doctor.
