Hair Makeover For Mom & I at E3 Salon Masjid Jamek

Last week, my mom and I had our hair makeover at E3 Salon Masjid Jamek. As usual, we took the LRT because this salon is very near Masjid Jamek LRT station and it was very convenient. This was the second time I brought my mom here. To read about our first experience with our hair dyed and treatment at this salon, click HERE. I have brought my daughter here to do our hair rebonding in January 2019. To read more about our hair rebonding experience, click HERE.

This time, my mom wanted to get her grey hair dyed black and to get her hair permed. This was how she looked before starting.


I decided to get my hair cut 2 inches to make it slightly shorter and easier to manage. I also had my hair dyed a darker brown color and had my hair treatment done. This was how I looked before starting.


The hair stylist started with cutting my hair shorter by about 2 inches. This took about 20 minutes.


After my hair cut, I had my hair washed and then dyed a darker brown color. You can see from the photo that my hair had different colors, so I decided to color my hair with 1 color.


I had to wait about 45 minutes and it was not boring because I could chat with my mom.


After that, I had my hair treatment done to make my hair more moisturized and softer.


Later, I had my hair washed, blow dried and styled with curls on the bottom. This was how I looked. I really liked the darker brown color and the softer and smoother hair texture.


My mom's hair looked flat, so she decided to have it permed. After washing her hair, she had it permed.



After waiting for about 1 hour, she had her hair washed and then dyed to cover the grey hair. She waited for about 45 minutes and had her hair washed and blow dried. My mom was happy and satisfied with her new look.


This was how we both looked. Our hair makeover was a great experience because our hair looked really nice and trendy. The hair stylists were very friendly and gave us great service. The salon was very clean too. If you are looking for a nice salon, do check out E3 Salon Masjid Jamek.

Grand Launch Of Taste By Champignons Malaysia And The Champignons Cake Shop


I was happy to be invited to witness the grand launch of Taste By Champignons and The Champignons Cake Shop at Eko Cheras Mall recently. The grand launch was very happening with lion dances and delicious food and dessert. It was quite crowded as there were many people there to celebrate this auspicious day.




Taste By Champignons Malaysia is a great place to relax and hang out with friends and family over good food, coffee, cakes and wine. Taste By Champignons is a new endeavor by Chef Gary Chang, the winner of the Malaysian International Gastronomy Festival 2018. If you had always wanted to try fine French dining which is affordable, you can come and dine here because Chef Gary's new endeavor is to have something in between hawker food and expensive fine dining. Now more people can enjoy fine French food which is affordable thanks to Chef Gary. 


Chef Gary Chang and me


This restaurant is spacious, cozy and very relaxing. Two days before the grand launch, I was there with some blogger friends to try out their delicious food. 


Forest Mushroom Soup With Garlic Croutons (RM 12) was made from all fresh ingredients and very tasty. I will be coming back for more of this.

Norwegian Salmon Fillet with Mushroom Cream Sauce and Mashed Potatoes (RM 30) is highly recommended if you dine here. The salmon was very fresh and the skin was crispy. The mashed potatoes were very soft and delicious.


Australian Grain-fed Beef Striploin (RM 45) with Black Pepper Sauce and Sweet Potato Fries. Meat was tender eventhough I preferred the beef to be well done. The sweet potato fries were very crunchy and delicious. 



The Champignons Cake Shop is next to Taste By Champignons and the desserts here really look so attractive to me.  The man behind these cakes is Pastry Chef Kingsley Kwoh. Kingsley’s passion for baking came from his mother who was an avid home baker. Encouraged at a tender young age, Kingsley eventually made it his career specializing in Modern French Patisserie. He went under the tutelage of French Pastry Chef Sebastien Bernis, at the renowned cake shop in the Luxury 5-Star Mandarin Oriental Hotel Macau. The team was featured in TK Magazine Macau (Issue No.19) and they went on to become the Silver Medalist in FHM in 2013. Kingsley loves to incorporate art into his creations and strongly believes that appearance is just as important as taste. He has over 10 years’ experience as a Pastry Chef and his last tenure of 4 years was with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Macau before he left to join Chef Gary at Champignons.





These desserts look so nice, cute and too beautiful to be eaten. These small, cute desserts price ranges from RM 14 to RM 18 each. If you love desserts, come here and enjoy these cakes with your friends and family.

The Batman Experience Swoops In To Take Over Resorts World Genting’s SkyAvenue


Never fear, for Batman is here. Taking over the SkySymphony stage at SkyAvenue in Resorts World Genting for the next two months, to be precise. Today, the world was introduced to ‘The Call Is Out’, the world’s first Batman-themed audio-visual show that will be transforming the SkySymphony stage into a celebration of 80 years of the Dark Knight’s history from May 10 to July 10, 2019. 

At the launch were Resorts World Genting, Mr Lim Keong Han, Vice President, Resorts Operations and Mr Kevin Tann, Vice President-Entertainment & Events. Representing Warner Bros Consumer Products Southeast Asia was Neal Rudge, CEO of Pacific Licensing Studio.

“I have been a fan of Batman ever since I was a boy, following his adventures from comic box to television series to blockbuster movies, toys, video games and collectibles,” says Kevin. “For 80 years, Batman has been part of my live and yours too. It is truly gratifying that Warner Bros has chosen Resorts World Genting to kick off the grand celebration of Batman’s 80th birthday in Southeast Asia. This is the first part of a year-long homage to the World’s Greatest Detective, celebrating his greatest achievements and iconic moments through the cutting-edge blend of music, visuals and kinetic technology only available through our SkySymphony stage. There are so many ways to interact with the Dark Knight at SkyAvenue over the next two months that I’m sure Batman fans will love the experience and many new fans will be born. Long live the Bat! Here’s to 80 years more!”

Neal added, ‘First appearing as socialite incognito crime fighter Bruce Wayne in Detective Comics #27 in 1939, Batman has stood as a symbol of determination, bravery and justice for generations of fans over these 80 years. To commemorate this anniversary, DC and Warner Brothers are mounting a year-long, global celebration honouring the Batman. We couldn’t be more delighted to be kicking off the anniversary’s celebration in Southeast Asia here at Resorts World Genting. This world-class activation being mounted by our friends here features a wide assortment of attractions, really, something for every age, gender and fan type.’

After the speech, the show began which combines visual scenes spanning the heroic tales and villainous encounters of the Batman Family set on massive 360° LED screens to show-stopping music and a transmogrifying showcase courtesy of 1,001 winch balls. This is the first ever display of Batman’s long and storied history this way. After moving through scenes involving iconic characters like Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn and more, fans were treated to the winch balls display transforming into various three-dimensional iterations of the familiar Bat Emblem and an unforgettable appearance of Batman emerged from below the stage.



Three times a day on selected dates, a Batman Live show will take to the Times Square stage at SkyAvenue. Titled ‘Batman & Robin vs. The Joker’, the comedic song-and-dance theatrical production features Batman, Robin, Alfred and Commissioner James Gordon facing off against the maniacal Joker and his henchman in Arkham Asylum. Featuring family-friendly entertainment and interactive games with the audience, the show takes guests through the ups and downs of a typical Batman adventure, with peace descending upon Gotham City once again at the end of the show. After taking a bow, the stars of the show will then stage a Meet & Greet with fans, shaking hands and signing memorabilia for Batman fans young and old. Guests can also join in on the fun by dressing up as their favourite Batman character in cosplay events scheduled for 28 to 30 June and 5 to 7 July 2019 at the Times Square stage.

Beyond the SkySkymphony show and the ‘Batman & Robin vs The Joker’ live show, there are plenty more Batman-themed experiences and touch points scattered across the levels of SkyAvenue. On Level 1 of SkyAtrium, four life-sized statue of Batman, a 1:1 replica of the Batmobile from the original Tim Burton-directed 1989 Batman film and a 1:1 replica of the Batmobile from the Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon-directed 2017 Justice League movie will be on exhibition from May 10 to July 10, 2019 – ready for fans and guests to snap photos with under the hashtag #LongLiveTheBat. There will also be a special trick-art wall at the SkyAtrium for visitors to take even more inventive social media-friendly photos.



Also at the SkyAtrium, fans will be treated to a pictorial history of Batman’s key milestones using panel displays. From the debut of Robin to Bane breaking Batman’s back, from Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns to the creation of the Court of Owls, the display will chronicle the development and history of the entire Batman pantheon from 1939 to 2019. Younger fans can also experience driving a Batmobile, with a fully-controllable Junior Batmobile available to try out at SkyAtrium. On Level 3 of SkyAvenue, the Dark Knight meets Japan in a special ‘chibi’ Batman display – depicting characters like Batman, Robin, Joker and Poison Ivy in a colourful, anime-like style that is both adorable and a departure from the typical dark and noir Batman atmosphere.



Batman also takes a very local turn, with the Batman Wayang Kulit display at SkyAvenue. Featuring famous scenes and recognisable characters in traditional Malay shadow puppet Wayang Kulit-style, this fan-created art shows the world of Batman is a very different light, merging 80 years of Batman history with Malaysian culture in a cool, unique way. In addition to the exhibition, there will be 20 copies of comics on display, a collection by Mr Han that is from 1940, 1942 and 1948.


Batman Wayang Kulit Display

And beyond just viewing statues and snapping photos, guests will also be able to take home a little bit of the Batman Experience through the Batman-themed pop-up store that will be located at Skytropolis Funland Indoor Theme Park and the lobby of First World Plaza, featuring exclusive merchandise.

Bee Choo Origin Herbal Hair Treatment


Recently I had my hair treatment done at Bee Choo Origin and I had a good experience there. Bee Choo Origin was founded by Madam Cheah Bee Chew in 2001. She used 12 ingredients by processing raw materials from Hong Kong, China and India for making the herbal paste. The Origin hair treatment centers can be found in Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Myanmar, Taiwan and Hong Kong.


Bee Choo Origin Herbal Hair Treatment can address these issues : hair loss, thinning of hair, grey hair, oily or itchy scalp, dandruff, damaged hair due to bleaching and sensitive scalp. My hair was dry from bleaching and coloring recently and this treatment was what I needed. I was told that if I had grey hair, after the hair treatment, my grey hair would become brownish.

The benefits of having herbal hair treatment is to prevent clogged oil in hair follicles, to remove access oil on scalp to promote hair growth and to remove dead skin to solve dandruff problems.


When I was there, I got my hair scalp analysed to know my hair condition and any problems I faced. Then I was given Ginger Wine (hair tonic + herbal tonic) on my scalp to remove impurities and to open up pores for herbal nutrients to be absorbed during the 45 minutes steaming process later.

Ginger wine applied on my scalp.

Next was 100% pure virgin Olive Oil applied on my hair ends to improve hair condition and shine texture.

100% pure virgin Olive Oil applied on my hair ends

After that was the herbal paste mixed directly on my scalp and hair. Plastic wrap and hair band was used to avoid leakage while steaming for 45 mins. 


During the 45 minutes steaming process, the herbal ingredients and nutrients were absorbed in the hair and scalp. 

Hair steaming process

The last step was washing and blow drying my hair. The whole hair treatment process took about 1.5 hours to 2 hours.



If you are looking for a place to get herbal hair treatment, you can try Bee Choo Origin. You can buy their products like shampoo, conditioner, hair tonic, hair serum, hair spa, hair repair cream and others. 


Bee Choo Origin Herbal Hair Treatment price ranges from RM 95 to RM 183 depending on hair length. There is good news for my readers because if you use my referral code ‘lindayee’, you can get 20% off your 1st visit and 25% off your 2nd visit.
