Berjaya Times Square Unlock in 60 seconds Challenge 1

I took my first chance over the box on my left since I have saw many tried over the right boxes. What I did was to just nabbed all the keys inside and head towards the door. Yes, that’s the BF taking my photo and accidentally knocked him when I hurriedly took the keys. Sorry!

Berjaya Times Square Unlock in 60 seconds Challenge 2

At the very first, I was keeping the keys that I have tried in my hands. Later on, I was told that I could just throw the keys on the floor. The keys of two boxes on my left didn’t help and finally, made my way to the box on my right at my very last 10 seconds. The background music is just loud and makes it so nerve wrecking. I was shaking my head because I have tried more than 10 keys and none could unlock it.

Berjaya Rasa Utara

As I was invited as a media, we were then treated with lunch at Rasa Utara, a northen Malaysian cuisine that is frequented by our former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir. The brand has underwent a thorough revamp in 2011 to keep it up-to-date.

Berjaya Rasa Utara 2

Here was the heart warming food that I get to taste. Clockwise,  Daging Rendang Utara, Sayur Campur, Ayam Kari Kapitan, Ayam Goreng Cili Lagenda and Kari Ikan Rasa Utara. My favorite is the Daging Rendang Utara because it doesn’t just taste like the ordinary beef rendang but it has an additional spice that enhance and makes the beef much more flavorful. My other favorite would be Ayam Kari Kapitan as it wasn’t as milky but maintains it’s flavor although gravy isn’t thick. It is delicious and I was fed well!

The Season To Dazzle at 1st Avenue, The Beauty Zone

Berjaya Times Square have delighted us with the launch of Beauty Zone in 1st Avenue with a collective of beauty brands to serve you with their flagship products and services. New and existing brands worldwide comes together to form Beauty Zone for you to discover skin care to make-up

With this launch, we get to attend the special effect make-up course by SUB International which is located at Lot 08-55, No.08-63, Level 8.

SUB International School of Beauty & Make-up offers more than 20 professional courses and is well equipped with the latest technology, teaching skills and materials. All classes are guided by qualified tutors and our goal is to train SUB’s students according to international standards and trends of the beauty industry. – SUB Beauty International

Other than offering courses, they do have their very own brand of skin care, make-up line, make-up brushes, makeup sponges & puffs, train case, scented candle and many more. Support SUB International by liking their Facebook below!

This special effect make-up course was conducted by Miyuki Ng who is a Make-up Tutor for SUB International with 10 years experience in this industry. Her work has been shown in numerous makeup shows as well as iFeel magazine. She is also the Branch Manager for SUB International School located in Sunway.

Here’s the list of what we’ve learned from the special effect make-up course where Miyuki have enlighten most of us that to create special effect, we don’t have to purchase make-up or products that are specially made for special effects. We could just get DIY with simple ingredients from the kitchen. Below is some interesting gory effects.

By mixing water, tapioca flour and red food colouring powder in a mixing bowl, she has created fake blood. Tapioca flour acts as a thickening agent and the red food colouring powder adds colour to the mixture replicating the colour of blood. Heating up the mixture in low heat could also help to thicken it more. Red food colouring liquid can be used and may not need water in this case.

Apply some glue and add bits of cotton over it then layer on with the fake blood that was made earlier. Use the spatula to push around the cotton and add more food colouring powder if needed to add the colour intensity to the effect. This creates an effect of burned skin.

To create heavily burned skin, repeat the same steps as how to create burned skin but this time, just use more cotton. Prick the cotton upright to create an illusion of badly charred skin.

I never thought it could be this easy to create a bullet hole. Repeat the same steps for burned skin effect but this time, shaped the cotton into an ‘O’.  Carefully adjust the shape with the spatula as you go on and there it is, a bullet hole! I accidentally deleted the photo of all three effects but I do hope you get the idea of how it looks like.

To create slit wrist effect, just roll up two thin cottons and repeat the steps on how to create burned skin. Super easy to fake a slit wrist huh?

After the course, we had our break at Starbucks with their muffins, croissants and sandwiches in 1st Avenue. Everyone were treated with a makeover session by SUB International and I was very lucky to have Miyuki to get my hair done!
