BelleWave Stem-Cellogist TX™ Facial Treatment Review

Undeniably, as age is catching up it also means more frequent visit to beauty centre for rejuvenating and maintaining skin vitality. Thus, recently I decided to check out BelleWave Stem-Cellogist TX™ facial Treatment. Based on the Nobel Prize-winning discovery of telomeres, this comprehensive five-step treatment claims to help stimulate the skin’s ability to continually regenerate youthful skin with the key active – TeloXtend-TX™.

What exactly is Telomeres?

Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of the DNA Chromosomes.
TeloXtend-TX will builds and maintains Telomere length, to improve cell interaction and cell metabolism, which could extend cell lifespan by 1/3. It will then works deep within our cells to delay aging and prolong youthfulness.

The products which will be used in the Stem-Cellogist TX™facial.

1) The treatment began with double cleansing to cleanse thoroughly. 

 2) Followed by exfoliate with Stem-Cellogist TX™ NuEnzyme Peel which contain papaya enzyme + (AHA + BHA) helps to dissolve dead skin cell and promote skin renewal.  
After application, leave on for about 10 minutes for the peeling effect. I could felt a tingling sensation with slight itchiness, especially the chin and nose area, but not to worry as it is bearable. Continue with extraction of white heads and black heads. 

 3) Next, Stem-Cellogist TX™ LiftXpress Ampoule is applied with some light tapping on my face for thorough absorptionWith the key ingredient of TeloXtend-TX™ , this ampoule aid in boosting the skin’s natural ability to continually restore vitality thus combating aging. 

4) My favourite part has to be the massage. I enjoyed the uplifting and soothing massage using Stem-Cellogist TX™ PhytoTensor Massage Essence I with Multi–Phyto Extract for an instant lifting and firming. So at this moment, you will need to control your facial expression and minimal movement.

Prior to mask, another massage cream Stem-Cellogist TX™ Sea Caviar Luxe Massage Cream II is appliedWith its unique sea caviar abstracts, it will help restore and build up skin nutrition. You will feel as though there's a layer of water in between thus massage with slight pressure really does feel very pleasurable.

Last but not least, mask! Stem-Cellogist TX™ Gold Champagne Redensify Mask + Activator
With champagne extract, the mask is high in antioxidant, helps in restructures and boost skin firmness. The peel type mask felt cooling and is gold in colour, are applied on my entire face, including my eyes for about 20 minutes. Can't help feeling Cleopatra. :p

Ended the facial with the basic regime toner, moisturiser and sunblock.

My verdict : Instant brightening and glowing effect. My face feels more lifted, firm and soft too.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the treatment results. The lifted & firm effect is said to last for about 3 days and it is highly recommended to go for this facial once a month for maintenance.

Malaysia's 1st Biggest Tethered Balloon Ride @ Skyrides Festival, Putrajaya

Hey..... It's weekend again. How time flies! What's your plan for this weekend? If you have no idea yet, let's do something different. Let's go up high in the air! Check out Malaysia 1st Biggest Thethered Balloon Ride located in Precint 2, Putrajaya to experience Putrajaya like never before, up to 500ft in the sky. It's the largest helium balloon of its kind to be hosted in Malaysia, soaring to more than 100 metres above ground offering stunning panoramic views of the Putrajaya skyline.

Yeah! I'm ready to go up high in the air. :p

But before that, we are required to sign the release of liability, risk and indemnity agreement.

The balloon is securely anchored to the ground via a series of high-tensile strength ropes. The balloon will ascend to a pre-determined height above the ground.

The platform is in a shape of a star with cardinal directions of "North, East, South, West" so we could locate our landmark during the ride session.


Feast your eyes with a spectacular 360-degree view of Putrajaya.

What a magnificent view.

Further away, The Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque, or Iron Mosque is the second principal mosque in Putrajaya, Malaysia after Putra Mosque. (source from Wikipedia)
The Seri Saujana Bridge is a main bridge in Putrajaya, the Malaysian federal administrative capital. The bridge's design is unique cable-stayed arch bridge and it is similar to the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. (source from Wikipedia)

The Putra Mosque, or Masjid Putra in Malay language, is the principal mosque of Putrajaya, Malaysia. (source from Wikipedia)

The whole ride took about 15 minutes with an audio tour introducing Putrajaya's iconic building. It is truly an awesome and interesting ride to view Putrajaya. I believe the night view will be equally breathtaking and stunning too.

The gondola could holds 30 passengers at any one time.

The Journey of "JoJo's Diary of Asia" Premiering @ TLC, Discovery Channel Asia

This coming August, let's follow the journey of celebrity personality Jojo Struys as her infectious positivity is beautifully captured in a host-driven travelogue entitled  'JoJo's Diary of Asia' premiering on TLC, Discovery Channel Asia kicking off on August 3rd, every Monday at 8pm. The dynamic and down-to-earth Celebrity TV Host, Speaker and Wellness author, Jojo Struys will be hosting the fascinating journey across Asia showcasing breathtaking natural wonders, travel & de-stress escapes, and relaxation techniques to help viewers become more physically fit and mentally positive.

Catch moving diary of Jojo's travels from the rustic beauty of the Himalayas to the bustling metropolis of Tokyo, covering a diverse array of unique cultural experiences in this 13 episode (30 minute) travel series.  

“It was such an incredible, soul-enriching journey for me, from bathing elephants in Nepal and flying past Mount Everest, to stepping into the shoes of an apprentice Geisha in Japan, to learning the art of patience in Tai Chi. I’ve learnt about the healing benefits of ancient power ingredients and how to make traditional dishes from scratch from a wide variety of chefs on my travels” says Jojo.

Here are some sneak peek of "JoJo's Diary of Asia".

Maiko- Jojo had her face painted white and stepped into ancient tradition when she  was transformed into an apprentice Geisha for the day, called a 'Maiko'.

Chitwan - Jojo travels to Chitwan in Nepal where she bathes an elephant in the river...a completely rejuvenating and profound experience.
Kyoto - Observing the power of silence while meditating with a Zen Buddhist monk in Myonshinji Temple.

Fuji Q - The 'Takabisha' is the world's steepest roller coaster at Fuji Q Highlands at the base of Mount Fuji. If you need to release stress through an adrenaline rush, this is the way to do it! Jojo screamed her lungs out and felt strangely empowered after this ride.

Samurai - Jojo gets a one-on-one session in the art of the Samurai sword with the master choreographer of all the fight scenes in Hollywood movie, "Kill Bill Vol 1"

Hakone - Jojo bathing in an 'onsen' real red wine in a natural hot spring in Hakone, Japan. Apparently, Cleopatra used to bath in this too and it's believed to be great for the skin.

Let's follow Jojo's journey as she gets thrown into activities she has never done before while immersing herself wholeheartedly in the local culture. Beside being the face of the series, Jojo was also part of the core team of cutting edge production house, Kyanite TV. She involved herself in conceptualizing the show from its seed idea to final execution. Jojo completely entrenched in research and pre-production as the lead scriptwriter of the series so you can authentically hear her point of view, insightful thoughts and candid honesty, every step of the way. 

This has surely been the trip of a lifetime for Struys, across all terrain as her reactions were spontaneously captured in real-time. It is also the first time Jojo has hosted a travel show on TLC, Discovery Channel Asia, realising her dream to bring passion for wellness and travel to an international audience.

So, if you are feeling stressed, and need a bit of inspiration or ideas on where to de-stress in Asia, make sure you tune in!

Nong & Jimmy Thai Seafood BBQ @ Ampang (Pork Free)

For food lovers, the famous Nong & Jimmy Thai Seafood BBQ definitely need no introduction. The restaurant had been around for the longest time and last week, I was here for dinner with a couple of foodies gang.

Caught some grilling of seafood in action.

Woah.... Huge crab!

BBQ is done over charcoal fire.

Mango Salad RM12
Begin our meal with Thai-style appetizer. Sourish slice of green mango, peanut and chilli with dried cuttlefish is too good to resist.

Tom Yum Soup RM15(Small) RM30(Big)
Served with generous fresh prawns, squid and mushroom. In my humble opinion, taste wise still lacked of 'kick'.

BBQ Stingray RM20
The stingray tasted just good, but I would prefer it to be more spicy.

BBQ Squid RM18
Fresh squid, done just right. I adore it's thick and QQ texture! So tasty.

Fried Yau Char Kwai
I find this taste rather bland.

Perhaps a dip into the in-house made pandan kaya might helps?
But....... still, nothing to shout about.

Prawn Cake RM15(Small)/RM30(Big)
This is seriously so good. Tasty and flavourful every bite and not greasy at all. Highly recommended!

Thai Style Steamed Siakap RM40

Thai Fried Siakap RM40

Butter Prawn RM44/KT
Fragrant and flavourful, only downside is overcooked prawn.

Black Pepper Crab RM70/KG

Grilled Crab RM70/KG
Prefer grilled, as you can taste it's natural sweetness.
Thai Fried Rice RM6/person

Overall, I find the food average, prices a little steep too. A revisit? I doubt so.....
