A Happy Bunch Of Things

Today I received a Happy Bunch of Things literally from a floral and gifts delivery company aptly called Happy Bunch.

I had won this gift box from a Facebook Giveaway Contest organized by Happy Bunch. It was a Hometown Giveaway Contest and participants were required to talk about the one thing they missed most from their hometowns.

I won the Glow Box. This is one of the currently 4 gift boxes being offered at the Happy Bunch website. Described as a box loaded with calming goodness, let’s see what’s in it!

  • There’s a silky eyeshade embroidered with the words goodnight on it.
  • Two satchets of Rhymba Hylls Lemongrass, Roselle and Ceylon Cinnamon tea which includes all of those ingredients plus kaffir lime leaves and tumeric.
  • An Ischia Miracle Marine Collagen Magic Gel Corset Mask formulated with marine collagen and hot spring water
  • A loofah handmade soap from Sabun Society with sea salt and citrus fragrance oil, and
  • A faux jade facial roller (it’s quite heavy)

What a lovely surprise gift! Yes, I am certainly happy with these bunch of things. For more gift boxes including their Pamper Box, Dapper Box (for men) and Reminisce Box (kids and teens may like this) check out the company’s website here

Signature Market Healthy Snacks and Nut Trails

I first heard about this brand on Facebook. It seems that they have a good presence on Facebook for every time I go onto FB, there they are, calling out to me to try their exciting health products. How to try? As a contest lover, well the best way to try is to have fun joining contests and get a sampling of their products if you win.

Many of my contest friends have won products too. My contest loving friends are all in a private group of contest lovers so sometimes we compare prizes.

“Have you received yours yet?” “What did you get?”

Signature Market certainly knows how to organizer exciting giveaways. They have giveaways on their Signature Market Facebook page as well as their Signature Market YouTube channel. They have exciting FB live giveaways to countdown to a marketing campaign or promo. There are so many ways to join, win, try their products and sign up on their website and after that you are hooked and there is no turning back.

I joined one of their YouTube contests recently. I love those because it requires you to watch a cooking demo (I love cooking demos) so that’s not too hard and after that you leave a comment and stand a chance to win…. exciting kitchen gadgets!!! I wanted to win the bread maker or air fryer so much! I didn’t but I didn’t do too bad either. I won RM150 worth of Signature Market products! It was a surprise box! I love mystery boxes, well, unless they are filled with outdated calendars, key chains or coasters.

I got my son to do an unboxing video of my mystery box from Signature Market since he just finished his exams and was doing nothing except playing video games all day. I think its better for him to learn some video editing skills so tadaaa here’s our unboxing video!

After unboxing the video, we “unpackaged” the packages. The video editor was hungry from all that editing. The fish skin was crispy, thin and delicious. The nuts were heavenly. We’re nuts about nuts by the way. However, even nutty people like us will know if the nut is not fresh. This one was.

Having said this, I must add that awhile back we did win some spicy fish skin but we did not find that to be as good as this. We found that one a bit on the thick side and not that fresh but perhaps it is because we are not particularly fond of spicy food to begin with.

Other items we had in our box include Organic Chia Seed Beetroot Ramen, Organic Apple Cider and Wild Honey Vinegar and Organic First Draw Soy Sauce.

I am now on their mailing list and every time I open it I feel tempted and the excitement never ends because they just keep on adding new products, now there’s even essential oils and baby cereals and biscuits. Fans of healthy living who love essential oils can check out the promo below.

Royal-B Honey from the Heart of Bornea

I have become more brand aware every since I started joining giveaways. After I started joining contests, I start to learn a lot about new as well as existing brands which I previously did not know of.

Now when I go to the supermarket or mall, I would see all the brands of food and other products which I had joined in giveaways. I would discover new restaurants, meals and menus too. It’s quite fun and interesting.


Royal-B Honey. My winning bottle plus another which I purchased after finding out about this honey through Facebook giveaways

I first heard of Royal-B Honey from a post shared by a friend. Royal-B Honey was giving away honey to lucky winners. The company is so generous in giving away the honey to participants because this is how they have chosen to spend their marketing dollars.

It is quite effective too. I joined several of their giveaways. I didn’t always win but I had a lot of fun participating. One of the giveaways required me to take a photo of their product at the supermarket. I had fun sneaking a photo at the honey shelf at Aeon.

I became strangely loyal to the brand after having consumed one or two complimentary bottles. Before this, I was taking the cheap brands and I could taste the difference. The cheap ones just tasted sugary. On the other end of the spectrum, there were the expensive ones which I couldn’t afford so I didn’t buy those. I find that Royal-B is affordably priced and had the real goodness taste of honey too.

So from giveaway contestant, I ended up being a customer. I went to buy new bottles after my complimentary bottle finished. I am quite a heavy consumer of honey as I drink it, put it on food, our pancakes, french toasts etc. I usually buy a bottle every other week or at least once a month.

Royal-B honey is harvested from the Largest Bees farm in Malaysia, naturally blended, filtered and packed. You can find it in most supermarkets all over Malaysia.

You can follow their Facebook Page to be informed of their honey giveaways.





Cheong Kwan Jang Facebook Giveaway

Recently, I joined a Facebook Giveaway by Cheong Kwan Jang MY. It was a rather fun giveaway. All I had to do was follow the Cheong Kwan Jang store on Lazada and count how many times Lee Min Ho appeared in the store.

To my surprise, I was selected as one of the winners and received a RM200 e-voucher on Lazada as promised to purchase Cheong Kwan Jang products with ginseng. Since I don’t really have any older folks at home, I purchased ginseng candy and ginseng honey paste instead which the kids would enjoy more. Although I was really tempted to get the ginseng tonic extract that you see Lee Min Ho carrying below because I always see many scenes in Korean Drama of them enjoying their ginseng in this convenient manner.

Below is Cheong Kwan Jang store on Lazada which I bought the products from. The items came the next day. Really fast shipping. They were nicely wrapped up in bubble wrap and the expiry date is quite far away too.

Currently the page is doing two new giveaways.

  1. Love in the Pocket Video Contest (extended deadline is 31st October 2019) requiring purchase with exciting prizes like air tickets to Korea, Taiwan etc
  2. Make a Wish and Get Contest (deadline 16 October 2019) with e-voucher of RM200 to buy Cheong Kwan Jang products at their Lazada e-store

The Westin Kuala Lumpur Mooncakes 2019 – The Yue Fantasy

I had been curious about how The Yue Fantasy Mooncake “Box” from The Westin Kuala Lumpur works. I heard that it was also a light, a bluetooth speaker and I wondered whether the mooncake fit in the box as well? If so, how many mooncakes?

So, to my delight, I was able to find out when I won the Mooncake Giveaway organized by Kuali.com. One of the requirements was to state what we would like to see more of from Kuali .

Below is my long-winded answer. I just wrote what was on my mind. I am very happy that Kuali decided to choose my entry as one of the winning entries.

On Kuali, to be honest, I haven’t been on the site for sometime although I used to frequent it for recipe ideas. I was going to suggest videos but when I clicked through I saw so many amazing videos already posted. This will definitely make me return to visit!

What I would like to see more on Kuali as a busy mom are COOKING THEMES for example

– Hacks and tricks (Quickie Recipe) Ideas for busy moms including one pot meals or other recipe ideas where you can cook and then leave to warm while you do your school runs etc. We not only need recipes, we need the whole idea of how to cook and keep food warm for different family members eating at different times while we run around being personal drivers to the said family members) or menu ideas for moms who have to cook in the morning, go to work and come home to prepare a quick home-cooked meal.

– Party recipes and layouts ideas (my party animal sister will LOVE this one). How to cook and plan and display for a party of 2-3 or 20-30 etc.

– Malaysian Festival Recipes (you already have Chinese New Year and Christmas etc but wouldn’t it be nice to put them all together? As Malaysians we should appreciate and try the various recipes from different cultures and not only our own)

– Kitchen Cooking Appliances Recipe Ideas and tips (ie recipes based on cooking with different kitchen cooking appliances like Air Fryers, Bread makers, Steamers, Pressure Cooker Recipe ideas and so forth). I just got a Pressure cooker and I have no idea what to cook with it except soups and stews and I am so worried it will explode or something, I could certainly do with some help from Kuali in this area)

– Menu planning – what to cook when you have to cook 7 days a week, twice a day and run out of ideas. Maybe even menu planning for a whole week or a whole month. That would help us a lot.

Instead of just recipes, I would like to see more tips like the above.

Thank you Kuali for organizing and asking for our ideas.

Enough of my long winded comment, now let’s talk about mooncakes. This year, The Westin KL has 8 choices of mooncakes including
Black Sesame Single Yolk, Pandan Mung Bean Single Yolk, Superb Mixed Nuts Baked Mooncakes, Low Sugar White Lotus Paste Baked Mooncakes, Cranberry Green Tea Mooncake, Purple Sweet Potato Mooncake and Taro Sensation Mooncake.

The mooncake mold is very beautiful too. My absolute favorite is the Cranberry Green Tea Mooncake. Not only does it taste really unique, it looks very pretty too, with green bamboo design.

As for the mooncake “box” well, it is just a marvelous very well thought of design. Every detail has been carefully thought about including how to fit the mooncakes into the box right up to how to open up the box with ease. It’s quite complicated to describe, so here’s a video to show you how the Yue Fantasy hides secret treasures within and it is by itself a treasure too!

The Westin KL is one of the winners of The Star Mooncake Awards 2019! A well-deserved win seeing how much thought has been put into its design.
