Product Review : Lowe Alpine Strike 24 L Daypack


Hey hey hey!
I'm back with another product review. Sorry I disappeared again.
Been really busy with work and all.

I want to share with you guys about something that might be useful to all of you guys who love hiking, 
climbing, trekking and outdoor-sie stuff. I recently came across a really awesome bag from Lowe Alpine.

Love how light this bag is and not to mention the amount of pockets on this bag.
Perfect size if you're planning for a casual day out, hiking, trekking, climbing, camping or even sightseeing.

Lowe Alpine Strike 24L Daypack (Rm299)

Love the yellow and blue stretch mesh pockets on the lower sides of the bag.
Those are actually pockets for your water bottles and it can fit a 1 Litre size bottle for each pocket.
You can also fit a thermos if the size is similar to a regular water bottle.

What I like about this bag are the shoulder straps.
Its one of the major thing to look out for in a bag pack because who knows whether you're planning to go out for a camping trip or even a quick hike, the bag pack you bring along has to be comfy. So, shoulder straps are one of the major things you need to look out for.

These shoulder straps have a soft preformed foam and an ultra-lightweight AdaptiveFit harness for supreme carrying comfort.
Unlike other bag packs which comes with a strap that is stiff and quite thin making it very tiring after a while.
So, be sure to check for a comfy shoulder strap.


I am one of those who LOVES bags full with pockets. Why you ask?
Well, if you're like me and you just love organizing everything you are bringing and I tell you that having this much pockets will help you save time.
You don't need to bring a bag organizer anymore!

Also, I really like how this bag has a large main opening for easy access. Some bag packs I've seen only open up until half way.
Its quite frustrating if you need to pack something big into the bag but the opening is small.

I love how it has a pocket for the hydration bladder (aka hydration pack/bag) in case you plan on bringing one along.
You can even store you laptop if its smaller than a 15 inch and slot it into the hydration bag pocket.
It even helps to give some back support too!

Here is something I'm really impressed with.This bag comes with an SOS panel on the inside of the bag.
Most bag packs I've seen does NOT come with an emergency guide or manual but this bag does.
Now you dont have to worry on what to do in case of an emergency.Another plus point for this bag!

The SOS panel is printed on the inside of the bag which is on the top pocket, accessible from the outside.
 A small top pocket for essential items such as your phone, keys, coins or any other small items.
It also comes with a strap that has a clip at the end for you to clip your keys on as well.

Here we have the front zippered pocket for easy access to your maps, notebooks, sunscreen or even raincover.

Also, did you notice the two coated strings on the grey flap in the picture?
Those are lash points for securing your helmet. Its just not suitable for helmets to be stuffed into a bag pack so just clip on your helmet straps through both lash points and you're good to go! You can also put your hiking pole through the lash points and lock it in place at the bottom part which I am going to show you guys in a bit.

Remember I mentioned bout the hydration bladder pocket?
Well, when you bring a hydration bladder, of course you'd want to drink out of it.
So, as you can see above, there is a hidden pocket with a "H2O"label printed on the side of the bag.
Its for the hose and nozzle from the hydration bladder to go through so you can get access to your water easily.

Not forgetting to mention that the bag comes with a few buckles to keep your bag safe.
It has 2 buckle straps on both sides of the bag.

Alright, back to the part where I mentioned bout the hiking pole.
This is the part where I mentioned earlier where you put the end of the walking/hiking pole through.
A unique tip gripper for securing your walking pole or anything that has a bung end.

Another major thing to look out for besides the foamed shoulder straps is the back support.
You'll be carrying around your stuff for the entire day so having a good back support is crucial.
This bag comes with an Air-Contour Foam which helps to reduce contact area between the bag and the back,
helping you to keep your back cool! You only have one spine so take care of it.

*Note : Not recommended if you're planning to carry many heavy equipments as this is a day pack not a mountaineering bag pack. 
It might be too heavy if you carry too many stuff and it will cause sore shoulders and back. 
It might even cause the seams to rip if the bag is too heavy.*

A little info for most of you guys out there who are searching for bag packs or are new to selecting a bag pack, majority of outdoor bag packs will have this emergency whistle buckle which is attached on the shoulder straps. Perfect for getting attention during an emergency situations.
You should really get a bag pack with this whistle buckle.

On the other side of the shoulder strap,
it usually comes with a small zippered pocket to store small items such as a swiss knife, nail clipper, etc..

Also another thing on the shoulder strap is a small LED light loop.
You can clip on your mini headlamp or maybe a walkie-talkie which I always do with my bag packs which has this loop.

Here I have prepared a Tech Specs list for you guys to summarize the whole thing :

(This list is based on my own research)

 or Imago Shopping Mall (1st Floor).

Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.

Hey hey hey! Guess what?
I just had the most awesome-mess time at the Coral Flyer!
WORLD'S LONGEST AND ALSO THE FIRST ISLAND TO ISLAND ZIPLINE
IN MALAYSIA! ONLY IN KOTA KINABALU,SABAH!


2 week ago, a group of 12 bloggers and 3 friends set out on an island trip to try the Coral Flyer.
We gathered at 9am in the jetty in Jesselton Point and the best part was we managed to
convince the guy at the counter for student price tickets!

***Note that boat ride from Mainland - Pulau Sapi are at own cost.***



Kendy decided to join us for this trip!

We took a boat to Pulau Sapi first cause' that's where you get your tickets for the Coral Flyer.
Weather was really sunny that day and we decided to chill at Pulau Sapi before

Cotton On Malaysia

T.G.I.F y'all! How was everyone's week so far?
Its already October! How times flies! Would like to apologize for disappearing for a while as I have been really busy with work,climbing and also other events.
A few days ago, I was thinking about shopping for bras and shoes somewhere around town but I didn't have the time to do so. Then Elaine suggested I shop online in Cotton On Malaysia. It never came across my mind to shop in Cotton On and I'm a huge fan of Cotton On.

*click for better view*

Its really worth shopping with Cotton On online cause' most of the
things you see online they don't sell it here locally. All you have to do is just
sign up and you'll automatically get a 30% discount code to shop with and I kid you
not everything is super cheap! Their sales can go up to 70% and its madness!
Things can go from as low as Rm2.00 and seriously who doesn't love sales?

Product Review : Ronasutra Mineral Makeup

A month ago,
I ordered a bunch of mineral makeups fromRonasutra.
I have been a loyal user of Ronasutra for years now and I really love how their products are good for sensitive skin like mine.
Their price ranges are very affordable.

Back when I first discovered Ronasutra products ,  I was feeling a little skeptical on trying out their products but reading their infos and reviews from blogs and youtubers, I decided to give it a go.  Went on to their website and browsed around and I realized how much this brand has grown. 

This is my favourite category in the whole website. Look at all the different shades and tones they came out with. I'm currently using the one in the shade (04 Honey) which is sold out at the moment.
I just found out about their skincare line and I love the packaging. I am so looking into trying out their skincare products in the future.
I even tried out their blusher before and I really love how well it blends on the skin and how lasting it is on my cheeks. I us…

Last month, I was given an opportunity to try out Yves Rocher products.
I heard of this brand before but never knew we had one outlet in Suria mall!

Love the red ribbon!

Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Toner, Hydra Vegetal 24 Rich Hydrating Cream, Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk, Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara,  Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion and Moment de Bonheur Eau de Parfum.
Yves Rocher produces products which uses natural organic plants. They harvest their own plants and extract the best ingredients from the plants.  Their products are manufactured in their factories in Bretagne, France.
Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara
I love the brush! Makes it easy to apply on and it gives  that really full look if you want those volumized looking eyelashes!
 Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion
The lotion smells really nice and fruity!  I love it cause of its non-oily texture. It doesn't have that oily and stick…
