Product Review : Granola Geeks | Delicious, Healthy, Homemade Granola


Hey y'all!
I'm back with another product review and I know many of you out there will like this!
As you can see from the title, its gonna be a healthy and delicious review so let's go!

So here we have Granola Geeks!
I have stalked followed their Instagram for almost a year now and I finally decided to order some for myself.

So who are the people behind Granola Geeks?

As you can see from the picture above,
its run by two childhood friends, Melissa and Hua who share a mutual love for baking.
Not just baking but also fitness! They both workout AND they bake.
How perfect is that?

I...can't even bake.
Ahem...moving on...

I love how the website is so simple and so white!
So easy to browse through everything.

I love how they display the granolas and the names they come up with is just too cute!
Very creative!


After browsing through the website for days,
I finally decided to get in touch with Granola Geeks and placed my order.
I had such a hard time picking out what I wanted and in the end I ended up picking 5 flavours when initially
the idea was to only get 2 flavours.

Once it arrived,
I quickly did an unboxing video for my Youtube channel because I just had to!
Not knowing what and how everything looked inside and really excited to see everything!

These were the granolas I ordered!

First of all, I just want to say I FRIGGIN' LOVE THE PACKAGING!
Its just too pretty! The pastel colour packaging is just too cute!

John Lemon & Coco Ono (Rm18.00)

Upon trying this one out, it doesn't have that lemon smell but more of a coconut smell instead.
Also after taking a bite, it doesn't have a lemon taste but a very strong coconut taste with lots of poppy seeds.
This granola had so much texture!


Livin' La Vida Cocoa (Rm18.00)

This one is actually my favourite!
As you can see it says that its packed with chocolate, chocolate and chocolate.
What makes it taste better, its DARK CHOCOLATE!
Nothing beats dark chocolate when it comes to chocolate flavour.

Dreaming of a White Citrus (RM20.00)

I actually like unique the taste is for this one.
It contains a lot of dried fruits in it and it also has ginger powder in the ingredients but it doesn't have a strong ginger taste so that is a win for me!
Smells like vanilla cookies and the taste is really good! I love the white chocolate!
It goes so well with everything in this pack!

Do the Hojichacha (Rm20.00)

I always wondered what the difference was between Matcha and Hojicha and I finally found out after having a chat with Granola Geeks.
Hojicha is basically roasted green tea! When I opened up this pack of granolas,
it smelled like a regular green tea but witha strong roasted smell. Tried it out and fell in love!
Love how strong the Hojicha flavour is and this would go very well with some milk!

Hey Matcharena (Rm20.00)

This one is actually one of my favourite because...its Matcha!
Who doesn't love Matcha! The smell for this one wasn't as strong as the Hojicha one.
Taste wise it was much more lighter and creamier! I just wish that everything was coated with more Matcha.

Spicy Sriracha Nuts (Rm11.00)

Before I opened up the package, I could smell the sriracha from the outside.
The smell reminds me of Japanese Rice Crackers soaked in soy sauce.
That's the best way I could describe this!
First bite was pretty spicy but after a few seconds the spiciness went away.
Pretty good and quite a healthy option for those who love snacking on nuts.

Also,
this was complimentary from Granola Geeks so just want to say thank you Melissa and Hua
for the mixed nuts!

***Note that all these granola contains nuts and wheat***

Conclusion ?
I LOVE EVERYTHING!
I would definitely purchase these again because of many reasons :

- Its all natural and made with original ingredients
- Handmade in Kuala Lumpur (Close to home)
- No Additives or Preservatives
- Price is VERY affordable for the amount you get in 1 pack
- Varieties of flavours to choose from
- Comes with a ziplock bag so you can store everything easily
- Nice packaging (DUH)
- Healthy snack for anytime of the day

So I would highly recommend everyone to give this a try if you're looking for a healthy option.
Something healthy to snack on in case of the munchies,
perfect for breakfast and also I love how it goes well with fruits and yogurt.

Cropped Top - DIY Inner Blue Top - F.O.S Ripped Denim Shorts - Miss OCD Tribal Necklace - Red City, Centre Point
Here's another DIY done by Yours Truly!

I've made all these from really BIG tshirts I found in my closet. Since I'm not gonna wear em' so why not reconstruct the shirts into something else.
Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirts and Scissors

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.
Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt!  If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.
Step Three : Cut off the bottom hems off and pull the fabric on all the part that you cut till it loosens and rolls up.
Then..YOU'RE DONE! This is how mine turned out.
Really simple right?

Coral Flyer Island to Island Zipline, Pulau Sapi, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

***Updated***

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
trying out the Coral Flyer.



See that guy in yellow.. that's Mr.Simon Amos!
The owner of Ropeskills Sdn Bhd, Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre AND also the Coral Flyer.

Everyone had to fill in the waiver form before getting on the flying fox.

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!

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…
