After 2 weeks of daily use, there was an obvious and visible improvement on my skin tone and pigmentation. On the photo below, you can see on the encircled area that the pigmentation was reduced after 2 weeks. On the square area, you can see that my stubborn spot (it’s really just 1 big dot there) was visibly lighter. The size is not yet reduced but the color improved. And look at my overall complexion! Really lighter and brighter!

Ok, this gotta be good. I stumbled upon this new beauty section at 1F in Isetan KLCC. I actually didn’t realize that they now have this part at the 1st floor. They have a few brands within this area which obviously caters to the younger shoppers. It has Shizens, TheFaceShop, Canmake, Holika Holika and Nature Republic (er, I’ve only heard of Shizens and TheFaceShop, the rest are all new to me.
Honestly, I am not young anymore to be really attracted to these brands BUT (!) I saw this very interesting product and it really captured my addiction to baby feet…a product by Holika Holika from Korea — BABY Silky FOOT One Shot Peeling, and in smaller text, it says: Seven day miracle! A simple one-step foot peeling pack for smoothening dead skin cells on coarse and chapped feet.
The product costed me RM38.60 (well, that’s just weird pricing). It’s so darn cute and interesting, look at that cute baby feet shot. And I guess I was intrigued with the seven day miracle…
I’ve had dry and chapped feet for as long as I can remember. I have been using Soap & Glory Righteous Butter Body Lotion and it has really done wonders for my feet. But this Baby Silky Foot thing should be interesting to try.
Inside this cute box are plastic disposable socks and the peeling solution inside babyfeet-shaped pack. Again, cuteness…
Here are the step-by-step directions:
1) Wear the plastic socks on both feet (best to start after bathing or washing your feet)
2) Put each liquid of the pouch into each foot sock
Tie the plastic strings to keep the liquid and moisture inside the socks (and to prevent spills as well)
Watch some TV first, chill, relax…read a book or something…
3) Take off the socks after one and a half hours
4) Wash feet gently with water
And the wait is on for the seven-day-miracle. Right after washing my feet, it feels soft and tender. During the 1st day after this peeling solution, the skin on my feet started to peel off, especially at those areas with dry and thick skin.
I am now on my 4th day and the peeling has become more evident. Sorry, I won’t be posting photos for this as it’s quite unsightly. The great thing is my calluses are actually peeling off, too. It’s quite amazing to see (hehe, goodbye thick skin).
Overall, I see that this was worth a try. You just need to do this peeling solution once every 28 days so it’s not too much of a hassle. It’s just like going for a foot spa every now and then. I’d definitely repeat next month to fully peel off my calluses and to make my feet even more silky…of course, I would still be using my indispensable Soap & Glory Righteous Butter Body Lotion.
Ever heard of chia seeds? This seed sounds really new and interesting to me. Upon some research, I’ve learned that chia is an edible seed that comes from a desert plant called Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in the country of Mexico. It is said that this small yet amazing seed was used as a staple food by the Indians of the south west and Mexico as well. Just a teaspoon full is good enough to sustain the energy of the Indians of the south west when going on a 24-hour march. 24-hour?!!! Wow, look how small this seed is…

Nowadays, kids have so many choices of shows to watch on TV. They have Disney Junior and Cartoon Network that play kiddie shows day in and out. Thomas & Friends, Chuggington, Little Einsteins, Barney, Powerpuff Girls, Powerpuff Girls Z, and the list goes on and on. And this is just on TV. They still have their DVDs so they can watch their have movies or shows again and again…agh, Barney the whole day…but eventually, I actually got used to that purple thing.
Looking back at the way things were during my childhood (yes, that’s almost 30 years ago), I can’t help but wonder if my son would be able to appreciate those shows. Just for the fun of it and maybe you would also be amused to remember these shows, here are some of those old childhood shows that can bring you way back to memory land:
VOLTRON: Defenders of the Universe
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to watch this from beginning to end. But the formation of this robot is just so cool. There are 5 lion robots that form together to become Voltron and fight the robeasts, monsters created by the witch Haggar, together with the evil King Zarkon and his son Lotor. The Voltron Force protect Princess Allura, ruler of the planet Arus.
And here’s the news! They are making a movie! Hopefully it will push through…let’s just sit tight and wait for further announcements.
And who wouldn’t find that formation song addictive? Even if we don’t understand the meaning? Voltes V is about the heroic exploits of 5 young robot pilots (3 of which are brothers) against the Boazanians, aliens from the planet Boazan. The Voltes V pilots consist of Steve, John, Big Bert, Jaime and Mark. They endlessly protect the earth while searching for the 3 brothers’ long lost father, Dr. Armstrong.
HE-MAN and the Masters of the Universe
Who would name a hero He-Man? Anyway, this show is about Prince Adam, the son of the king and queen of Eternia, a planet of magic and fantasy. Prince Adam uses a power sword, holds it up high and says, “By the power of gray skull, I have the powwweeeerrr”. Then he transforms into a macho man with just minimal clothing, haha! Of course, he becomes very strong and fight against Skeletor, as you might have guessed, ya, he looks like a skeleton, or he’s actually a skeleton.
Okay, so I guess they needed a version to appeal to the young girls…or young boys? She-Ra is about Princess Adora, twin sister of Prince Adam. Princess Adora has a sword of protection and when she says, “for the honor of gray skull”, she becomes She-Ra. She fights against the Evil Horde to set planet Etheria free.
POPEYE the Sailorman
Spinach, anyone? Maybe the creators of Popeye had spinach farms, ahahaha! The show is about Popeye’s daily adventures where he would often need extra strength to overcome obstacles such as rescuing Olive from Bluto or rescuing Olive from Bluto (well, the episodes are quite predictable with Olive always being taken by Bluto). And to have that extra strength, he would take out his canned spinach, eat everything and then he becomes superhuman.
That’s it for now. Need to go back to the present time as my Aden wants milk and his Thomas & Friends show already. Hope you had a fun time reminiscing those old childhood shows!
