Kena called back! AH BOYS TO MEN 4 movie Review + Freebies for fans


Hi guys, I bet if you been watching Ah Boys to Men movie from the beginning you'll not miss out this time where Ah Boys kena called back for some serious training again!! 

Singapore's most successful movie franchise is back and after completion of their full time national service stints, Lobang, Aloysius, Sergeant Ong and Ken Chow were all busy with their respective careers as civilians. When they are called back for in camp training in an SAF Armour unit, the boys must juggle between work and their duties as operationally ready national serviceman. Hilarious situation happen when they are back training together and their military roles reversed. New enemy threats arise as their brotherhood is put to the test. 

Title: Ah Boys to Men 4
Release date: 23 November 2017 (this coming Thursday)
Running time: 125 min
Rating: 8/10 (my review)
Genre: Comedy
Language: English, Mandarin
Distributed by: J Team Productions, MM2 Entertainment, Clover Films, Golden Village Pictures
Casts: Tosh Zhang, Wang Wei Liang, Joshua Tan, Noah Yap, Hafiz Aziz, Maxi Lim, Jaspers Lai, Charlie Goh, Ryan Lian, Apple Chan 


The highest grossing Singaporean Box Office franchise Ah boys to Men is back on the big screens with its fourth installation. The movie opened big at Singapore's box office taking in approximately RM 8 million in a week since premiering on Nov 9. Director Jack Neo said that they had been through hardships and setbacks to make this film where the original budget for the movie was S$ 2.5 million but they had exceeded it by S$ 700 000. Yet the biggest challenge during the filming was the weather. It was hard to predict and the military has very strict rules stating no training should be done if it's too hot or humid limiting the filming hours. Director Jack Neo said ABTM4 continues to showcase the camaraderie among the boys and has injected in some other elements such as the challenges of the military training, family and love.


From left Ben (new cast as Boss of Sergeant Ong), Noah Yap (as IP man), Wang Wei Liang (as Lobang King), Tosh Zhang (as Platoon Sergeant Ong), Joshua Tan (as fat Ken Chow)!! OMG!! He was instructed to put on weight for the filming described it as a sweet torture, saying that he was grateful to be given the opportunity to challenge himself with an unfamiliar role of a bully victim. However Tosh Zhang probably made the biggest sacrifice in this movie where in a scene he was forced to strip down to his red underwear. Haha.. For Wang Wei Liang this time a matured version as the character is now a family man who needs to look after his family and kids.  


From left Director Jack Neo, Apple Chan (new female cast as Lieutenant Zhang Xin Yi), Jasper Lai (as Handsome), standing behind Hafiz Aziz (as Bamboo stick), Foo Chay Yeow (new cast as Fatty), Ryan Lian (new cast as Ah Long), Maxi Lim (as Aloysius Jin aka Wayang King), Hanrey Low (as supporting cast). There're a few more cast which didn't appeared for press conference this time.

One of the highlights of ABTM4 is the female addition to its main casts. Hong Kong based actress Apple Chan plays as a Lieutenant in the Armour unit. Although with a strong martial arts foundation, she still suffered injuries during the filming where there was a scene I turned and caught the helmet that Ryan threw over and it look rather easy on screen but the fact is my whole right arm was bruised the next day after being hit by the helmet. While Ryan said when he first accepted this new role, he was worried about fitting in with the old boys. During the training for the movie, everyone was very helpful and it makes me feel like I am part of this big family.

Alright after watching ABTM4, I find the military level are less intense compare to before kinda feel more relax, very fun to watch and meaningful. They also showcasing many military equipment stuff. Cast vice each of them have a different twist and some how I feel this movie is alike Ah Boys to Uncle look already and why, you should watch it..haha..Director Jack Neo said there is a sequel of ABTM5 but I hope not turning into romantic genre as Sergeant Ong started to fall in love with Lieutenant Zhang (a little heartbroken for me)..haha..


During the press conference, Apple Chan was asked who she will choose as boyfriends in all the cast?? She said you must watch who will she choose in the movie..haha..Alright, there are movie freebies for fans and Director Jack Neo will be leading his ABTM4 troupe on a promo tour to Malaysia from Nov 20- 22 and will be stopping by Kuala Lumpur, Sg Petani and Penang. The ABTM4 Promo Truck will also be going around Kuala Lumpur for 10 days starting Nov 23 to give away exciting movie freebies for the fans. To learn more about the event, please refer to the official Facebook page of Mega Films Distribution.

'Look What You Made Me Do', the softer make up version featuring A: CONCEPT


When A: CONCEPT asked to make your own make up concept, I mean what do you really think of?? A: CONCEPT which is made in Korea since 2013 is a cosmetics brand  features an unique, stylish, trendy and all in one cosmetic concept that's easy to carry wherever you go. Alright, I know it's another K-beauty stuff to reveal and recently it's being so trendy and hot to go!! Let's check out more..



Feeling like Christmas is near?? I know in less than two months to go cause the packaging is so Christmasy right..consist of 1 ALL IN ONE BRIGHTENING A: CUSHION and refill plus 2 lipsticks shades. The first thought on the cushion?? It's look bulky but wait there's something unique about it..


Let's start off with their best selling products ALL IN ONE BRIGHTENING A: CUSHION. There're 2 shades available, no 21 for light beige and no 23 for natural beige so I got mine no 23. The cushion is fully filled up as you can see and moderately picked up by the puff. Perhaps of it black puff, hardly can see the amount of foundations picked up on the puff itself  however during application, I can see it's really working on by dabbing motion and it suit my skin tone very well. Contains whitening, anti-wrinkle and UV protection SPF 35 PA++ formula, it does help to brighten up my skin tone naturally however the coverage on a few post acne spot, it doesn't cover it well. Overall, I still find good to go with this new cushion and together with concealer to make it perfectly smooth face.


Next, comes to the lipsticks part where there're 2 shades of red available for lip and cheek. For the cheek part just use two fingers to blend it out evenly. The shades are vivid matte finished especially on the lips and it reminds me on creating a concept inspired from Taylor Swift new songs image, Look What You Made Me Do but in a softer version which I think it's easily to carry out..now don't be shy to put on bold red lips ladies!!



Now comes to the most interesting part, did I said it earlier the cushion look bulky?? It does but when I find out there's a slot for the lipsticks pen, this two in one item are a travel friendly beauty kit to go!! Such a good concept!!



The before and after me..on my face cushion, concealer, eyebrow, cheek and lip make up on..


So where to get it?? Check out Althea website now if you like it as so far as I concern their hot selling items are usually sold out fast!! Thanks to The Butterfly Project for the opportunity to get to know A: CONCEPT brand stories well..

BETADINE X MAKNA; Break the 'silence' in Malaysian Women (Review + Giveaway Alert)


Hi ladies, 
hope you're having a good day and in the conjunction of Breast Cancer Awareness in this October, I have something very meaningful to share with you. As the title, BETADINE is supporting the National Cancer Council Malaysia (MAKNA) to break the silence and help more Malaysian women become more aware of cancer prevention. Cancer may sounds a little frightened in every of us but when you look after your health and be aware of your own body condition, early detection and prevention does matter. So don't worry, let's join force together to help those need and this time BETADINE Feminine Wash Foam goes pink..Well, I know the packaging doesn't look that pink (Pink October is mean for Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign) but let's check out my review here and how do you can help plus BETADINE is being generous to collab and I'm hosting the giveaway for you.

Do you really need a feminine wash ladies??
The vagina is home to healthy bacteria known as Lactobacillus. These beneficial organisms are essential for the protection of our intimate area’s micro-environment. Under healthy conditions, this good bacteria in the intimate area environment can help to maintain an optimal pH balance, while preventing unfriendly organisms from thriving. In order for the beneficial microorganism to have a healthy population level, prebiotics or good germs play an important role. Most people know that prebiotics are good for the digestive system, but in fact, they can also be beneficial to other parts of our bodies, such as the intimate area. This is especially important for women’s personal hygiene, as prebiotics help to populate these beneficial organisms in the intimate area micro-environment, thus could help in protecting against feminine discomfort due to pH imbalance. With prebiotics, normal flora of vaginal micro-environment can be restored to help maintaining vaginal health.

Beneficial Organisms
(Lactobacilli)
Unfriendly Organisms
(Others: Bacteria/Fungi/Protozoa/Viruses)
ü  Help maintain normal vaginal pH 3.8-4.2

ü  Suppresses the growth of unfriendly organisms
ü  Keep vaginal flora in healthy balance
c        Overgrowth can lead to infections in the intimate area
c        Can cause infections and disrupt vaginal pH
c        Create an unfavourable intimate area micro-environment by displacing beneficial organisms

Ideally, the female intimate area should have a pH level of 3.8 – 4.2. This means that at pH 9 – 10, most soaps and body cleansers available in the market can disrupt pH balance of the intimate area, which can result in infections caused by thriving unfriendly organisms. On the other hand, while water is safe for cleansing the intimate area, it is not always adequate.

Ladies maybe yes or maybe no. As far as I concern, if you're using feminine wash means you're having an imbalance in healthy intimate flora such as itch, odour and excessive discharge. Those symptoms I have experience it before until I need to consult my gynaecologists. Well, it does really a little shame for me (especially meeting the male Dr) but most importantly get yourself treated first. I still remembered my gynaecologist advise to clean the intimate area with salt water if possible at all time and do not use any of soaps or body cleansers. Took the topical antibiotics as prescribed and within a few days I started to experience recovery. Well after that of course I have been more careful in taking care of my intimate area. Clean with water and dry it at each time while during shower avoid the soaps near the intimate area and until this time BETADINE gain my trust on using feminine wash product again.

BETADINE Gentle Protection Feminine Wash is designed exclusively for feminine hygiene needs. It nourishes and supports the growth of your healthy intimate flora for natural protection against feminine discomforts.

Made in Germany

Its unique Tri care formulation combined with prebiotics provides daily protection from unwanted symptoms associated with pH imbalance. Tri Care contains:-

Immortelle – a natural anti-oxidant that helps to improve skin’s natural moisture levels
DeoPlex – a natural extract that provides effective odour neutralization
SyriCalm – a natural active ingredient that soothes skin, reduces redness and alleviates irritation.


A gentle formulation suitable for daily use including during periods.

What I like about it after a few days trying it out??
With one pump enough, the white foam texture on my hands it feel so gentle plus a very good mildly fragranced. During cleansing, you can see the bubbles soap but don't worry it doesn't sting even on a small cut after shave which I have experience it recently. After rinsing, I can feel instant moisture and feeling fresh. At the moment, I'm very satisfied to use it almost every day. I also find that this could be the best feminine wash product to carry if you're on travelling cause you know different country have different toilets habits. Just to make sure your intimate area is clean and comfort by the end of the day.

How to support BETADINE X MAKNA??


You too can join Betadine® Feminine Care in its effort to raise fund for MAKNA to create more breast cancer awareness this October! Simply purchase two bottles of Betadine® Tri-Care™ Daily Feminine Wash Foam 100 ml at Watsons pharmacy throughout the month of October.

3 Reasons to overnight at The Bed, KLCC

If you're at the big city of Kuala Lumpur and thinking where to overnight comfortably and most important affordably, check out this post where it's all about my experience of overnight at a new concept of luxurious capsuled styled accommodation designed to provide convenience, quality and genuine sense of community for all travellers at an affordable price at the heart of Kuala Lumpur. I also included my 3 reasons to choose to overnight at The Bed, KLCC again.

Picture 2.JPG
At the media preview, Co-founder and Executive Director, Mr. Leslie Cheong said, “We are millennials, thus when we travel we always look for something exciting, something new, something different. This is where the idea of innovative hotel came in mind, and we are also looking forward into introducing Malaysia's first co-living concept in our hotel. “With us, staying in dorms doesn’t feel the same anymore and it's beyond your expectations, that's what most of our friends and guests reviewed after staying with us. We are also targeting business travellers by providing private suites with more personal space for work and stay. We have strong confidence we are able to keep up with the global trends and to fill in the demands of millennial travellers," added Leslie.


1) CHEAP
When I said affordably at first I mean it, it does attract me and upon official launching on 12th of October 2017 they're offering an introductory room rate from RM 49 nett inclusive of complimentary breakfast provided. I'm not sure the promo until when but I'm pretty sure most of you will want to know this first as one of the criteria in choosing where to stay in the big city of Kuala Lumpur especially cause you know the usual rate will be quite expensive. For your info, The Bed KLCC has invests up to RM 20 million to date for the luxury capsule accommodation. Price rate begins from RM 69 per pod per night and the single pod suite is priced from RM 139 per pod per night inclusive of complimentary breakfast, daily housekeeping and high speed internet access. They're now available for bookings and had generated responsive future bookings till February 2018. Now let's see more..

Ground floor
24 hours reception and security are quite tight meaning no allowing visitor or additional guests to stay due to safety concern which I find it's a very good point. Check in time 3 pm and check out time 12 pm.

First floor


The lounge area from 6 am to 12 am.


What a gorgeous mini library and the books are real.


Got attracted to the 3D fire woods area but the beanie wasn't that comfortable.


The dining area alike canteen feel but in a more luxurious way.


You can also spend your leisure time watching TV or interact with new friends from all around the world.


Mini cafeteria with complimentary coffee or tea through out the day and wash your own cups then.


Food vending machine is just in need.


A simple complimentary of breakfast provided.

2) CONVENIENCE
The Bed KLCC is located at VORTEX KLCC, Jalan Sultan Ismail and easily accessible to Kuala Lumpur Central Business District. With its strategic location, it's well connected to an excellent transportation network such as free shuttle bus (GoKL), Light Rail Transit (LRT), monorail and all available at a walking distance form the hotel. For example, 5 minutes walk from the Bukit Nanas monorail staion, 10 mins from KLCC and from KL Tower. At that night, I got the chance to captured the most beautiful view of KL Tower. Besides that also, The Bed KLCC is next to 7 Eleven store which is very convenience for you and parking is available in the VORTEX itself.

10 mins walk from KL Tower.

First floor






Use only in house slippers and keep your shoes in the locker provided according to your bed pod no.

My room for the female only and no outside shoes, food and smoking allow.


Each guests will be given an access card to go in.



Entered the room and my first impression is look dark but don't worry you still can find your bed pod no. Be gentle and quiet.

Single pod side entry which I think is a good choice with the private locker at the bottom.

Comfortable pillow, bed and blanket to sleep.


Now how about having your own privacy in the pod, just pull down the privacy blinds for your own personal space and with the light off, others guest hardly can see thru you from the outside.


Pods are equipped with basic needs such as fast speed wireless connection, USB ports for charging my phone and camera, international charging ports, LED lights, multi purpose fordable table with mirror, hanger, towel, toothbrush kit and cap shower.

The Bed KLCC can cater to a capacity of up to 170 guests and offers six types of pod to choose from -- Single Pod Side Entry (Female), Single Pod Side Entry (Mixed), Single Pod Front Entry (Mixed), King Pod/Family Pod, Single Pod Suite and Queen Pod Suite. The size of each single pod is 40 sq ft whilst the size of the suite is 150 sq ft, larger than any standard pod offered by traditional capsule hotels. Travellers can opt to choose their preference of pods, ranging from private pods in sharing room to private suite pods, and immerse themselves in a luxurious home away from home experience.

Now, how about the wash rooms? Don't worry they have separated it into gender.

Beautiful wash rooms with the shampoo and soap provided in the shower.


Changing and make up room area.

3) COMFORTABLE
Sleeping in a pod may sounds interesting and yet it's that comfortable?? For me, I think sleeping in an air conditioner room should not be a problem cause you still can feel the coldness from the outside. With the equipped facilities within the pods itself, I find it's so much convenience as I needed. Just follow the rules and regulations, get your good sleep. For reservations, please call +603 2715 2413 or visit www.thebedklcc.com
