Pedicure and Flower Clips kind of day

The weather in Malaysia has been crazy this week, one minute it's bright and sunny, the next thing you know it's raining. Well, changes in weather can sometimes affect you -- and it caused me coughing the past few days. Since I wasn't feeling so well (and was couging at my last yoga class), I decided to take the day off from yoga and do something else.

Drove to The Curve (at Mutiara Damansara). It's one of my favorite malls. Mostly because it's near my house... but also because parking is cheap (RM1 per entry). Even if you park all day, it's still RM1.00 only. Anyway, I went there for one reason -- to finally get a pedicure. I usually had my nails done at CANS (California Nails) in Manila, which is definitely one of the best places to get manicure/pedicure. Since I am now in my new home Malaysia, it's time to start searching for the right shop which I can go to regularly.

I went to Gorgeous Nails at the top floor of the Curve (right in front of Yamaha). I tried their pedicure spa which cost me RM73.00 (quite pricey compared to Manila). The service was okay and the French pedicure was well done... so I didn't mind. What made my day is meeting a new Malaysian friend. She was drying her manicure while I was drying my pedicure. So we chatted. And had coffee. Discussed about Europe, about love and life. She even introduced me to her other friend. Now I have some new girl-friends in Malaysia!

Afterwards, we walked around the bargain stalls at the Curve, which are only there on weekends. I bought some pretty flower hairclips (which seems to be a fad now). The flowers look almost real and clips on easily. They actually made different clip designs -- small, medium, big, clamps, etc. You can steal this Penelope Cruz look for just RM20.00 !!! They were selling all types of flowers and a range of colors to choose from.

Got myself a 2-sided white flower clamp which can hold up all of my long hair. Plus another small flower clip which had a different style clamp to do half-up do (purple orchid). Paid total of RM30.00 for the 2 clips. It's a bargain actually. Especially if you compare to specialty shops that sell flower clips for 5-10 times more than the price I paid (imported ones). They are quite soft and authentic-looking. I'd say if someone was wearing it, I would even be fooled from afar that it's the real thing!

  1. Can you feature more articles on how to fix long hair? I love the flower clips but it doesn't match my style of dressing. I'm usually in tailored outfits. What about if I'm in casual tees and jeans, what hairstyle is nice. I have long straight hair and I don't know how to style it..
