Day 1️⃣

Her Premium Flex with Air Asia flight has departed to Kota Kinabalu (KK) from Kuala Lumpur International airport (KLIA2) @ 5.30am

Guess what❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing was nearly missed her flight for the 1️⃣st time ever, she was lucky 🍀 that she didn’t, so you all still get to read her stories here 😅😂🤣

Unsure & don’t know why she wrongly remembered the Boarding Gate for her flight. Actually she got an angel 😇 who he helped to take her photo – Kota Kinabalu wall at departure hall. He asked, which is your boarding gate❓⁉️ She confidently answered Gate K 🤦🏻‍♀️, if she bothered to recheck her boarding pass again, she would definitely saved her energy to run & rush to the other end for the correct boarding gate that early morning

She was thankful 🙏🏻 that she got on the flight 🛫 to KK, she felt blessed. So, moral of this story to you all, do recheck your boarding gate before you walk towards it to wait for your flight boarding, if missed a flight is definitely not good ya

It’s really feeling good while on board with flight ✈️ after 2️⃣++ years, enjoyed looking out the flight window to feel the warm sun 🔆 rays & seeing the dancing clouds ☁️ up close while enjoyed her favourite flight meal ~ Santan Nasi Lemak Pak Nasser

.

As an art lover herself, she got amazed with the beautiful wall murals 🎨🖌️ at KKIA painted by the Sabahan artists. Truly proud of all local art talents shown to the world the art & culture of the people in Sabah in different ways, forms & knowledge through art

Actually these art displays at airports are part of the National Art Gallery & Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad (MAHB) initiative ie.

Yes ✅, both domestic & foreign travellers whether now arriving & departing from international airports at KL, KK, Penang & Kuching will be greeted by a series of artworks created by local Malaysian artists. Malaysia 🇲🇾’s international airports are the next cultural hubs

Happily met & greet with Sabah Tourism Board team members, Ms DG & Ms Nana, as well as tour guide, Mr Tommy Soo & driver, Mr Peter of Borneo Excursions at KKIA. Then, departed together to Kudat on a road trip of approximately 3.5 hours

Enjoyed a big bowl of bitter gourd soup vermicelli with a mix of both fresh fish & fried fish slices as lunch @ 📍 Kwong Sup Ikan. Surprisingly that the name of the soup in Cantonese/Mandarin “江鱼仔”, it means anchovies, however none of the dishes related to it, perhaps the soup base 🤔

The fresh fish slice is tasty to enjoy with a sense of fresh sweetness, while she is not to enjoy the fried fish slice, she prefers more dried fried, as she doesn’t really like the taste of flour coated on the fish slice. Just her own tasting preference ya ☺️

The bitter gourd soup base is slightly plain to her taste buds & not bitter. She would have preferred a thicker bitter taste soup base. She has tried a sip of the tomatoes soup 🍅🍲 base from her travel mate’s bowl, it tastes better as compared to bitter gourd

Not just that, she has learnt that fig plants requires 4-6 months for planting & harvesting in Malaysia 🇲🇾, the fungus from humidity will spoil the fig fruits, also flood as fig needs water but not too much to grow for good harvesting. Fig plant needs half a day sunlight 🌞, so planting them in green house is to protect them from the excessive rain water 🌧️ Each plant can harvest 30-40 fruits each time. It harvest 2️⃣ times a year in Malaysia 🇲🇾 versus once in Turkey 🇹🇷 comparatively, with rotating techniques used, Mutiara Fig manages to have fig harvesting all year round 👍🏻😁

She also learnt the Peat Moss ie. Soil as medium for this plan & CIRT method as an additional compound for the root growth of this plant. The steps are,

  1. Remove outer layer of the plant
  2. Root hormones application
  3. Cut the Peat Moss & CIRT composition bag, spray water & apply again root hormones
  4. Then wrap the bag at the outer layer
  5. After 2️⃣ weeks root growth on the bag
  6. Another 2️⃣ weeks transplant the bag to poly bag to grow as a 🆕 plant & place in nursery & place with a dripper (Both fertilizer & water) auto system for daily watering

After transplant, approximately 2️⃣ months to start the baby fruit 1️⃣st, then harvest in approximately 5 months later. The fig fruits harvest here are vailable in green 💚, yellow 💛, red ♥️ & black 🖤 according to the level of sweetness 😋🤤

Kwong Sup Ikan

She has enjoyed a big bowl of bitter gourd soup vermicelli with a mix of both fresh fish & fried fish slices as lunch here

The fresh fish slice is tasty to enjoy with a sense of fresh sweetness, while she is not to enjoy the fried fish slice, she prefers more dried fried, as she doesn’t really like the taste of flour coated on the fish slice. Just her own tasting preference ya ☺️

The bitter gourd soup base is slightly plain to her taste buds & not bitter. She would have preferred a thicker bitter taste soup base. She has tried a sip of the tomatoes soup 🍅🍲 base from her travel mate’s bowl, it tastes better as compared to bitter gourd

Malaysian sellers participating in Shopee’s 9.9 Super Shopping Day for the first time achieve over 5 times uplift in sales

Yeah‼️‼️ Do you all enjoy Shopee shopping 🛍️🛒🌐🧡 just like SiennyLovesDrawing  the recent 9.9 Super Shopping Day❓⁉️

Guess what❓⁉️

Health & Beauty and Home & Living categories proved popular, with most buyers coming from areas including Johor Bahru, Kuching & Kota Bharu

Shopee continues to offer more value and fun for shoppers and sellers during its 9.9 Super Shopping Day. The start of the End of Year Sale season concluded on a high, with local sellers in Malaysia who were participating in Shopee’s 9.9 Super Shopping Day for the first time achieving an average sales uplift of more than 5 times on 9 September, compared to a usual day.

Health & Beauty, Home & Living and Mobile & Accessories emerged as the top categories sold during the shopping festival’s peak day.

Interestingly, despite the recent announcement that face masks are no longer mandatory indoors except in certain situations, masks were still one of the most sought-after products on 9 September. Treats and snacks for cats and storage products such as folding boxes, cake boxes and paper bags also proved to be a hit among consumers. The latter may be a sign that local sellers are preparing for anticipated orders in the coming months.

Those living in Johor Bahru, Kinta, Seremban, Melaka Tengah, Kuching and Kota Bharu were busy checking out their shopping carts during 9 September. These locations registered the highest number of orders in the country, outside of Klang Valley.

Meanwhile, live streaming continued to provide enjoyable and interactive shopping experiences to users. Within the campaign period from 26 August till 9 September, Malaysian shoppers spent over 2 million hours watching streams on Shopee Live. Buyers also had fun while shopping, with a total of over 24 million game plays on Shopee Prizes during the same period.

All about Shopee app, online shopping, ewallet, ecommerce, ShopeeFood, ShopeePay, app, ShopeeAmbassador

ShopeePay was also a preferred payment method for checking out by users when purchasing items on Shopee during the 9.9 Super Shopping Day. Within the first two hours of 9 September, there was a 9-times uplift for orders paid using ShopeePay, compared to an average day in the previous year. In the last two years since the pandemic, users are likely more accustomed to paying using cashless payments methods like ShopeePay for ease of use as well as value in terms of rewards.

ShopeeFood since starting in November 2021 has helped many users to connect with merchants that are both big and small through the integrated platform offered by Shopee. Micro merchants especially benefit greatly from the ecosystem as the platform helps merchants to expand their businesses in the post-pandemic period by connecting them to a large base of online users available on the Shopee mobile app.

This is evident based on the Top Dishes ordered by users during the 9.9 Super Shopping Day. Across all the five locations (Kuala Lumpur/Putrajaya, Johor, Penang, Sabah and Ipoh), most users took advantage of the great discounts and promotions to order their favourite local staples like Roti Canai, Satay and Nasi Ayam Penyet. Besides supporting local F&B merchants, users also ordered a high number of food items like Strawberry Chocolate Chip Almond Milk Frappe, Sushi, Matcha Boba Tea and Pasta based food items.

Kenneth Soh, Head of Marketing Campaigns at Shopee Malaysia said, “We’re really humbled to play a small part to help local sellers on our platform achieve a significant level of sales uplift during the 9.9 Super Shopping Day. We can see that our marketing tools and seller engagement features are empowering MSMEs to capture significant growth opportunities in the digital economy. Shopee is looking forward to continuing boosting their sales during the year end, while enabling Malaysians to enjoy the best savings on our platform.”

User Experience ~ BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray

Hey all, this time SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to share about her recent user experience with BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray. Personally she loves it for a refreshing & soothing natural mouth spray

Yes ✅, JUST spray for relief & comfort with Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray 👍🏻

MEGA BiO-LiFE introduces Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray, a natural & herbal solution for refreshing breath & mouth soothing. It contains a blend of 7️⃣ carefully-selected natural plant extracts and oils which are chamomile flower extract, honey, peppermint oil (Menthol), licorice root extract, eucalyptol, propolis powder & aloe vera powder to work in synergy & reducing ⬇️ bad breath

BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray is suitable for all age groups & can be used for mouth soothing & reducing ⬇️ bad breath. It’s also handy during Malaysia 🇲🇾’s current transition to endemic phase, festive 🎉🎊 occasions, hot ☀️ & rainy ☔🌧️ seasons, or when consuming too much “heaty” or oily food

Smokers 🚬 who have other concerns like bad breath or dry mouth, can also use Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray for relief & comfort

BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray tastes natural & convenient to carry with you anytime & anywhere. To use, spray 2️⃣ to 3️⃣ pumps directly into the mouth 👄, as often as required ✅👍🏻

If your mouth feels dry & sticky with saliva that seems thick & stringy, you probably have a dry mouth 👄 What can be worse is if you have difficulty chewing, speaking & swallowing, offensive breath & mouth ulcers, which are all signs of an irritated mouth 👄

A dry & irritated mouth is usually caused by viral infection or allergies. However, there are also other factors like ambient air pollution, weather changes & smoking 🚬 that can aggravate the condition. As viral infections are the major causes of dry & irritated mouth, most cases do not require any antibiotic treatment

People usually turn to herbal remedies made of natural ingredients such as honey 🍯, propolis, aloe vera 💚 & peppermint 🌿, which are commonly used for anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, cooling & soothing to relieve the symptoms of dry & irritated mouth, such as bad breath or mouth ulcers. Now, a mouth spray made from natural herbal ingredients works more effectively while providing on-the-go convenience with BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray
