[ADV] BCard Reward Program

If you haven’t heard of BCard, it’s a reward card launched by Berjaya that allows members to collect and redeem points at participating outlets.

Photobucket

Currently available at 300 stores nationwide including Starbucks, Papa John’s, Wendy’s, Krispy Kreme, Kenny Rogers etc. Points are rewarded both ways- when you spend and when you redeem! What’s more, members get a giftpack with 40 vouchers worth over RM1300!

So excited when we got our BCard, Jessica and I went for Kenny Rogers hoping to collect some points!

Photobucket

Tried out their new black pepper lamb.

All-time favourite muffin!

Photobucket

If you’ve pre-loaded credits into our BCard, you can use it like a debit card to pay your bill. The only downside is it takes quite a while for the machine to process and it requires you to key in your PIN number.

Photobucket

But despite the fact that the machine takes some time, I couldn't be happier with BCard cause all the vouchers are really useful! They've got RM5 cash rebate and 20% off for Kenny Rogers, 20% off for Starbucks, RM10 for half a dozen of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, free 6 pieces of Wendy's chicken nuggets and many more! And these stores are where I usually visit!

BCard offers a lifetime membership with no annual fee. 1 BPoint = 1 sen so when you’ve collected 100 point, you’ll get RM1. Points expiry is 36months after issuance. Of course, for regular Starbucks visitors like us, it shouldn’t be a problem to collect more than enough points for redemption before the expiry date XD

If you’re interested to get a BCard, contact BCard call centre at 03-21192999 or email to enquiry@bcard.com.my

Let’s spend and get rewarded at the same time! :)

Grimbergen Launch @ Belgian Embassy

Courtesy of MHB, I attended Grimbergen beer launch at Belgian Embassy. My first time attending a party at an ambassador’s residence!

The invited guests are the familiar faces from Carlsberg and other corporate partners, media and bloggers.

Photobucket

We arrived early that day despite the crazy jam. Had like at least 5 glasses of Belini (that pretty pink fruit punch) before the event even started! It’s so sweet and addictive you won’t even know you’re downing alcohol!

Photobucket

Getting my airbrush tattoo done.

Photobucket

The reborn phoenix – Grimbergen’s logo. Cool right the tattoo! XD

Photobucket

Andy has got one tattooed at the back of his head! Guess he must had a hard time removing it later that night. LOL.

Photobucket

The official launch, after which we were served with the 3 flavours of that Belgium beer, each with different tastes and percentage of alcohol. This girl is so skinny I hate her. Look at her legs!

Photobucket

If you’re wondering how it tastes like, think about Hoegaarden.

Photobucket

Smooth and free from bitterness, ladies would no doubt enjoy it.

Photobucket

As stated by Grimbergen’s slogan - a taste for rebirth! :)

Be Right Back

Hipster Kate needs some time off for her own leisure.

No wait, actually to be precise it's the nerdy Kate. So busy studying for tests and all she has no time to clean her room.

Photobucket

Heck she couldn't even spare a minute combing her hair! T_T

Laura Mercier Official Opening @ Sunway Pyramid

Located on Ground Floor of Sunway Pyramid’s new sing, Laura Mercier brings you romantic, modern and feminine this spring. Photos credit to Andy Kho.

Photobucket

Over 40 young and pretty ladies (including myself *cough cough* XD) attended the official opening of Laura Mercier. The kiosk has been opened for quite some times this year though, if you’re a regular shopper at Pyramid.

Photobucket

It must be every girl’s dream to own the whole set of those make up! Okay maybe not every girl, but girls who are vain like me. Teehee.

Photobucket

Demo by the make up artist on the model. Wish I was half as pretty as her without make up.

Photobucket

Finger food were served by Delicious. They even pampered us with wine and champagne!!! Red wine and Moet rose my favorite ^^

Photobucket

Pretty girls and Tim #likeapimp wtfreak. LOL.

Photobucket

Group photo with MBH members.

Seoul Day 7 - Spending our last day at Myeongdong

So sad this would be the last post on my Korea trip! I remember that devastating feeling on our last day knowing that we had to leave that lovely city in a few hours’ time; no more Kimchi and awesome street food, no more shopping at Edae for cosmetics and pretty clothes that say “Made in Korea”, no more clubbing at NB and dancing with Seungri (!!!), no more chilly weather to even complain about! Ugh. Especially after all the fun we had during the past few days of the trip, the thought of leaving was just so depressing!

Had Korean BBQ for our last meal in Seoul.

Photobucket

Pardon me for not having my make up on. Wouldn’t want to have layers of them while sleeping in the plane. Don’t you just love huge glasses? They do a great job in reducing the flaws and the illusion that my facial features are actually symmetrical, which to be honest, they are not!

Photobucket

Looks like we were given more taugeh than we would ever consumed. Katie hates it to the core.

Photobucket

Steak and pork belly.

Photobucket

Very excited me waiting for them to be cooked.

Photobucket

Adding a little perfection to the tenderness.

Photobucket

Naengmyun – noodles in chilled broth. With ice inside! A bit yucky for our liking.

Photobucket

Did some last minute shopping at Myeongdong. Sadly, no photo of our victory purchase to add on to the collection since we had already checked out from the hotel.

Myeongdong Coffee.

Photobucket

Erm, whatever.

Photobucket

I was probably tweeting about how sad I was to be leaving Seoul in a few hours’ time :(

Photobucket

White chocolate latte and Caramel latte. Both yummy!

Photobucket

Complimentary strawberry sponge cake and giant cookies! *happy*

Photobucket

My cute darling who wouldn’t stop praising how this was the best cafĂ© we had ever been ^^

Photobucket

Spotted: Big Bang posing in The North Face giant poster #likeaboss

Photobucket

So proud to be standing together with my loves XD

Photobucket

Rule the winter like Park Bom! She is no doubt Katie’s number 1 idol. Teehee.

Photobucket

Taeyang oppa!

Photobucket

Oh, I also happened to get a manicure session done at one of the salon. 15,000 won, probably the cheapest we could find there.

Photobucket

The saddest part :(

Photobucket

Paris Baguette at Incheon airport before boarding.

Photobucket

Not sure whether the lady was being rude or she didn’t understand it despite our several attempts to request for our breads being toasted.

Photobucket

I have to say compared to Paris Baguette in the city, this branch is pretty crappy. And much more expensive, obviously.

Seriously doing no justice to all the other Paris Baguette stores.

Photobucket

Wonder Girls on the airport advertisement board.

Photobucket

And that sums up our trip to Seoul. Bye bye Korea, I will miss you. In fact I am already missing you. Going to look back at all the photos and cry now :’(
