[ADV] Kings & Queens L'Odeur Range Fragrances Soft Launch

2 weeks ago, I went to the soft launch of Kings & Queens fragrance at Grand Dorsett Hotel Subang Jaya with a few MHB members. Arrived at the ballroom before 7.30pm and we were seated at one table while waiting for dinner to be served.

There was a registration counter set up at the front entrance for the arriving guests and media. Everyone was given a number for lucky draw yo!

Took a picture at the photo wall next to the ballroom entrance.

The ballroom was beautifully decorated with the posters that depict the L’Odeur range fragrances.

Cassandra Patrick was the host who hyped up the night amidst the fashion show and music performances. Absolutely love the white princessy dress she was wearing that night!

Courtesy of Kings & Queens, dinner was served for every guest.

Kings & Queens is a combined group from an extreme luxury product development company sourced from one of the best companies in the world to bring consumers the latest luxury high-end fragrance and beauty products.

Being an international brand, Kings & Queens uses high quality ingredients sourced from France.

The first range of products to be launched by the brand is the L’Odeur range which consists of three fragrances namely L'Odeur Paris, L'Odeur Venice, and L'Odeur Milan.

 "Kings & Queens Truly Makes One Royalty"

-       offers a sensual and radiant luxurious fragrance.

L’Odeur Paris has a relatively stronger scent compared to the other 2 fragrances from the range. An elegant flowery scent suitable for a night out.

Angus House Christmas Menu

Located at the Explore Level of Starhill Gallery, Angus House Japanese Charcoal Steak is an ideal choice for couples that seek for a romantic and soothing ambience for a memorable dining experience. Compared to other Angus House branches, this one at Starhill is considerably new as it has just relocated there recently from Pavilion.

On the eve of Christmas, we had our dinner at Angus House Starhill. No turkey meat this year, but rather some tender and juicy steak from their special Christmas menu.

Prices vary depending on the main course we choose. For the price stated, we get to enjoy the Christmas set that consist of homemade bread, appetizer, soup, salad, main course and homemade dessert.

Pan Seared Tiger Prawn & Scallop with Hoisin Barbeque Sauce. I couldn’t have enough of this mouth-watering appetizer! The main course was great too, but this has got to be my favourite dish of the night.

Crab Chowder was quite ordinary. No crab strips, only pieces of carrots. LOL.

Japanese Garden Salad with Thinly Sliced Bonito Flakes. The Japs really know how to make awesome salad! I don’t always finish my salad, but when I do, it ought to be Japanese salad XD

Ribeye Steak (300g) – RM167. As I’ve mentioned earlier, the price is inclusive of the whole set. Quite cheap for a Christmas set! The Kobe Steak here costs RM370 for 200g arghhhhhh too poor to afford that! :(

Tenderloin Steak (200g) – RM150. Just as the reviews I’ve read previously, the steak was really juicy and tender. So happy to have finally tasted some good steak I almost shed a tear of joy :’)

Tiramisu was yummy too.  By the time I was quite full after that 200g of meat (greedy me, should have ordered 150g wtf).


It was a delightful Christmas dinner at Angus House. I would highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a quiet restaurant that serves good steak.

I Hated High School

This morning, I woke up and recalled my dream of returning to my high school as an adult. It was a good dream, walking out of my high school alongside the sports field wearing my casual outfit with my shades on and feeling my wavy hair being blown by the comforting breeze. In the dream, I was fully aware that my hair had been dyed a beautiful shade of copper. Scattered around the school were girls tidily clad in their blue pinafore, staring at me with eyes of admirations, filled with wonders of the world they have yet to embark. I was a free bird! I have been released from the tormenting place after 5 long dreadful years! Gone are the days when I had to adhere to strict conservative rules and taste the wrath of the loathsome female educators. Every movement I take is no longer governed by anyone but by myself, occasionally confronted by the criticisms of the society yet nothing too restrictive that hampers my spirit of rebellion.

You know how many tend to reminisce their glorious days in high school. As for me, I am simply glad that my high school years are over. Don’t get me wrong, I am certainly happy at the fact that I have met my best friends for life during high school. Sometimes I would chuckle while thinking about how we used to fight over who queues with who, how we accidentally got the teacher’s attention when I slapped her hand so hard in class, and that one time when we were punished to stand outside the classroom together for forgetting to bring a dictionary (seriously man, who brings a thick ass Kamus Dewan to school!). But most of my high school days were dark times. I was no cheerleader, I hated sports, I was afraid to speak in public let alone to be a debater. Popularity wise, I wasn’t exactly the most loveable girl of all. Heck I had glasses and braces, I was your typical kind of nerd! Throughout the later years of my high school, I got rid of them nerdy gears and entered the bad girl phase. After the weekly recess, the prefects jotted down my name for not cutting my nails (ain’t nobody got time for cutting nails when they had hardly even grown). The discipline teacher reprimanded me for my pinafore dress was way above my knees. More often that not I was spotted for having dyed and untidy hair. I thought to avoid being caught so often I had to be a prefect myself. But my mighty plan did not work as I carelessly failed my trial period when the discipline teacher spotted my extra piercings. I had 4 on my left ear and 3 on my right.

I hated school. I hated the dewan tertutup that suffocated us every Monday. I hated the teachers for shouting at us like we were dogs. I hated having to sit on the dirty floor in the hall everyday. I hated the sight of bloody used pads in the toilet. I hated the recess time that ended too quickly before I even had enough food. My happy times were out of school despite the fact that I had to attend 7 tuitions in a week. Those were the times when I truly learnt something out from the syllabus. One of the things, if not the only thing I could be proud of those days was my academic achievement. Stubborn and disobedient I was, I always maintained at the top 5 of the class. It was a competitive task having to defeat all the smart girls in our top class, but I did it once when I got number 1 during Form 4 *proud* XD If there was one thing that could dampens my spirit, it is not getting an A in any of my test or exam (such a typical high expectant Asian I know). There was once when I cried while holding on to my Sejarah text book for not being able to absorb the details of every single page wtf. Now to think about the amount of information we had to study those days, it was crazy we could even memorize them!

At this point I have no idea which direction this blog post is heading to. Just penning my hidden thoughts that were stirred up by that particular dream. So young, yet so full of hatred, you thought. That was me, whom I once used to be but not anymore. As time passed, I began to embrace the beauty and ugliness of this world and have become a part of it. My glory days had kept me waiting, but they have found me eventually. I savor the success I never once achieved, I feel the love I never dared dream of, I enjoy the attention I never used to receive. Most important of all, I realize how much blessing I have earned, blessing far greater than I ever deserve. There is no promise how long one could remain in this brilliant age of glory, but I am certainly grateful for everything in the present time. Whenever you feel disheartened, just remember, the dark hours will soon come to past. It is never gloom and depression, but rather joy and hope that keep us alive :)

Okay I was gonna post up some photos from my high school days but once I started browsing through them I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOUS!!! Too fugly beyond your imagination. So yea, for now you can only see my less ugly photos taken in the most recent times. Teehee.
