Veet Sensitive Touch Workshop

Speech by Tiffany Tang, Marketing Director of RB Malaysia & Singapore
 Last week I was invited to attend the Veet Sensitive Touch Workshop, the workshop was held at Talent Lounge at Damansara Perdana. 
The new gadget in town is Veet Sensitive Touch, beauty can be a tricky stunt when it comes to hair removal and trimming, as many sensitive body parts demand skill and care. Bikini lines, eyebrows and underarms are delicate areas that requires gentle yet precise trimming, which existing tools like razors and tweezers cannot fully provide. I am glad to tell you that world's No.1 depilatory brand Veet has recently rolled out a new beauty gadget that makes hair trimming a breeze.
 Currently women often shape eyebrows by tweezing or threading, as well as use razors for hair removal aat bikini line and underarms. 

"Research has shown that unfortunately the market does not cater to method that treats each sensitive area with the precision, gentleness and convenience it needs. Hence, women seems to need a whole armory of tools like razors, tweezers, cream, wax strips and so on to tame those tricky terrains," said Tiffany Tang, Marketing Director of RB Malaysia and Singapore at the workshop. 

According to Celebrity Makeup Artist Stevensunny, maintaining a well-shaped brow is just as important in a woman's beauty regime as skincare. "Your eyebrows speak before you do. You can convey boldness and confidence with a squared off brow, or arch it differently to show free spirits. Many women have told me they don't know how to do it properly and are afraid of messing it up. This is why I love Veet Sensitive Touch, it is suitable for all brow types and skill levels, and you can adjust the length of hair to trim. So, if you don't like or got bored of the style you created, it is easier to change it!" says Stevesunny, who demonstrated the ease of using the device to create arches and angles at the gadget workshop.

Strategies for Saving Up a Down Payment

While minimum down payments have decreased, it is best to have at least a 20 percent down payment before purchasing a home in order to truly take advantage of the lowest interest rates, inexpensive monthly mortgage payments and overall savings, according to

Prospective homebuyers also need to take into consideration other closing costs, like appraisal, private mortgage insurance and property taxes. You should also make sure you have an emergency fund and enough savings for potential home repairs, in addition to your down payment, before purchasing your home. Therefore, it is important that you are serious about saving your money before even considering buying a home even when the real estate scene in Malaysia is at its lower point these years.

Read these tips for saving up for a down payment, as well as other closing costs, home repairs and your emergency fund.

Open a Savings Account

If you are currently only using a checking account, open a savings account at the same bank or credit union. Using one financial institution is much more convenient, since most banks and credit unions allow you to transfer funds back and forth from accounts electronically and instantaneously. You can easily
move money into savings from your checking account online without visiting a physical bank. Savings accounts also tend to have a much higher interest rate than checking accounts, so this is an easy method of saving money while gaining more in interest.

Start a Budget
You can create a budget on a spreadsheet, according to The Simple Dollar. Write down your monthly gross income, then subtract taxes and other regular monthly costs -- like rent, gas, utilities, transportation, car payments, credit car bills and student loans -- from your paycheck. Once you have subtracted those steady costs, you can see how much money you have left each month and determine how to spend or save it.

Begin by tracking your spending for two or three months, writing down your restaurant, entertainment, parking and clothing expenses. You will be able to quickly see how much money you take in and how much goes out on a monthly basis and determine where costs can be cut. Income and expenses tend to be about the same from month to month, so the only way to start saving more money is to either bring in more money or change your spending habits.

Change Your Spending Habits

Determine if there are any costs that you can cut from your day-to-day life. For example, are you subscribed to any monthly services that you don’t really need? Do you really need to buy fancy coffee from the coffee shop every day or can you simply make coffee at home and bring it to work in a travel mug? Can you decrease the number of times you go out to eat at restaurants every month? Can you cut out going to the movies on a weekly basis? Once you change these spending habits, you can really start saving money. Don’t be afraid to be ruthless in cutting costs from your budget. Ask if each and every dollar is justified.

Bring in More Money

Those that save the most money are people who have multiple streams of income. If possible, take on an additional part-time or even full-time job. Consider freelance writing or selling any clothing or belonging you no longer want on websites like eBay. You can also start your own side business to earn more money. Starting a business could be financially risky, as many businesses fail. However, starting a successful business is one of the best ways to build your savings.

Check Interest Rates

Interest rates differ vastly for credit cards, saving accounts, car loans and other types of loans and accounts. Therefore, it is important that you go through every bill and account and check the interest rate on each to determine if you can do better. For example, if you are consistently paying off your credit card payments, then you should call your credit card company and tell them that you want a lower interest rate. You can easily achieve a lower rate just by asking.

With car loans, it often makes sense to prepay your debt, but many loans use a sum-of-the-digits interest calculation, in which case, prepayments are a less attractive option. Auto lenders are exempted from rules that mortgage lenders are subjected to, which means that auto loans are less regulated. If
you are paying really high interest on your car, it might make sense to sell it and buy a less expensive used car instead, especially if you want to focus on saving money for your down payment right now.

Check Your Credit Score

Your ability to borrow money for your home is closely linked to your credit score. Therefore, it is crucial that you have strong credit. Check your credit score on a regular basis to make sure that it does not have any errors and to know and understand where you stand and if you need to improve. Make sure that you check your credit report for factual errors or out-of-date items several months before you apply for your mortgage, so that you have enough time to take care of any errors or disputes before getting pre-approved for your home loan.

Accept Gifts

There is another source of savings that is often overlooked and that is gifts. You are allowed to use gifts from parents, relatives and friends for your down payment. In order for money to be recognized as a gift, the donor must sign a gift letter, explaining that there is no expectation of repayment or interest.

There are also down payment assistance programs that help first-time buyers purchase homes. While some offer interest reductions and tax benefits, others offer grants that don’t need to be repaid. Look into these assistance programs and determine whether you fit the qualifications before moving forward with applying for grants or gifts.

Genting Highland – More than just the theme parks

For those in and out of Malaysia, when Genting Highlands is mentioned, the first thing that would pop in your head will be the thrill filled, exciting rides that makes up their theme park. Not only that, being nestled high on a mountain peak makes Genting Highland the best place to escape the scorching sun to the salubrious mountain air. P.S., even though the outdoor theme park is currently under construction for the bigger, better, more extravagant Fox themed theme park, don’t let this stop you from getting yourself there. Here are the many other things that can be done up this mountain.

Casino de Genting
Genting Highlands raison d'être, the Casino de Genting may not come anywhere near Las Vegas’s prime light where sparkling dresses, glittering neon lights and scantily-clad showgirls abound, but for all its worth, this is Malaysia’s only legal land-based casino. Men in batik shirts and women in pretty frocks crowds the tables and punters line the slot machines waiting for their luck to bless them with a big payout. There is nothing but pure fun here (and momentarily loss for some too).

Flying Fox
If you fancy being strapped safely into a harness and helmet and then jumping off a ramp into a dipterocarp forest, then this would surely tickle your adrenaline spirit. This airborne adventure sends you off down a 100-metre strung down the side of the hill, not only do you get to enjoy this jump down, imagine the view of the whole Genting right in-front of your eye. The ultimate best way to bond with friends and family and required minimum level of instruction, making it the perfect quick-thrill ride.

Genting Skyway Cable Car
The Skyway Cable Car is the fastest and easiest way to get to the apex of Genting Highlands. This relaxing and scenic ride affords you breathtaking views of the surrounding hills; the gondola-style cab glides along at leisurely pace, making it an ideal photo-taking opportunity.
my family members enjoy the fun in Snow World, click to read about it
Snow World
Experience a winter wonderland, unlike any other in Malaysia, when you step into the snow-white landscape of Snow World. Featuring the Cresta Run snow slide, this attraction is a novel experience due to Malaysia’s hot and humid weather; it’s a great place to see kids playing and adults taking in the sights.

Genting Bowl
First World Plaza has a bowling alley - Genting Bowl. One of the highlights at Genting Bowl is the glow-in-the-dark bowling. For those of you who feel like the indoor theme park has nothing to offer you, do make sure you take some time off your shopping trip and drop by this bowling alley and experience a one-of-a-kind bowling session with the family!

Now that the entertainment part is covered, let’s talk hotels and accommodation. The hotels up here in Genting Highlands are stylish accommodations with impeccable service and spacious guestrooms with breathtaking mountain views. Here are some of our favourite.
This hotel is officially the world’s largest hotel in 2015, as it adjoins the First World Plaza which boasts 500,000 square feet of indoor theme park, a shopping center and food heaven. Right at the main entrance, a lush, tropical rainforest greets their guests and all their rooms are modern, comfortable and practical.

Awana Hotel – Resorts World Genting
Indulge in five-star luxury while enjoying the breathtaking view of a majestic mountain range, and make full use of their 18-hole golf course, heated swimming pool, and other sports facilities.  At Awana, the only main rival for comfort is their beautiful, stunning view.

One thing about Genting is you need to plan your holidays well as the crowd can be crazy at times and rooms will be totally sold out. So it’s always best check with Traveloka on the availability and also for the best deals in town.
