Mangosteen - A Beauty Brand that Smells like Southeast Asia

We're spoilt for choices this Christmas season when picking presents but why not gift something that will actually change lives from just RM95 a set? And it's a totally win-win situation because you'll be getting (or rather, gifting) some really nice beauty products.

Mangosteen Pamper Holiday Gift Set

Conceptualised in 2013, Mangosteen began with a mission to help address the sustainability of organisations that do important work around the Southeast Asia region but rely on donations or grants to sustain or kick-start their work.

The lifestyle brand with a social mission commits 100% of their profits to help empower the lives of women and children across South East Asia (SEA) through carefully selected non-profit ogranisations.

The brand supports by funding organisations that empower women and children through:

  1. Education, Upskilling and Training
  2. Entrepreneurship and Micro-Financing 
  3. Physical and Mental Health Care
  4. Advocacy and Community Building 

Mangosteen products are the essence of Southeast Asia, with scents and fragrances derived from flowers, fruits and herbs you can find here. These include lychee, goji berry, bamboo and lemongrass!

You can support the cause by grabbing one (or two) of these Mangosteen Holiday Gift Sets. The Refresh Holiday Gift Set (RM95) comes with a Pomegranate Body Lotion, Pomelo Shower Gel, and a luxurious candle of your choice. I do recommend Lychee & Black Tea because that just sounds so delicious!

Trevo Car Sharing Marketplace: Review & Trevo Promo Code

During our previous trip to Penang, we took the ETS directly there but this time, we decided to take a Trevo instead. What is Trevo? It's basically a car sharing marketplace aka an Airbnb for cars!

Sign up with Trevo code "ISABELLEE"

Get RM50 Trevo credit when:
⭐ You book your first Trevo
⭐ Someone books your car

So we got a nice Honda City to drive all the way up and down. 

Trevo Car Booking Review

Why do I need to get a Trevo when I have a car?

Okay there are a few advantages of getting a shared car here:

  • It is obviously more comfortable to travel long hours in a bigger car
  • Need space to fit all the luggage (I own a small Myvi)
  • You can make pitstops on the way!
  • Can drive around instead of relying on public transport or walking everywhere (us, the previous trip)

Sharing some of the places we went to in Ipoh, Penang and Taiping which we managed to explore just because we booked a Trevo instead of taking the ETS or flying!

Lunch at Ipoh

Otw to Penang we decided to stop first at Ipoh for.. obviously food! By this point we were quite hungry and this shredded chicken noodle soup (kai see hor fun) at Restoran Ipoh Kong Heng really hit the spot.

shredded chicken noodle soup restoran ipoh kong heng
The whole area is quite nice and can take Insta-pics. For example, this is the exterior of the kopitiam we ate at LOL then we walked around and found this nice alley attached to The Happy 8 Retreat Ipoh which also has rooms - the whole place has an elaborate wooden theme going on.

Then you can walk around some more to the area around Sekeping Kong Heng Ipoh which features several art installations, some food and bazaar. Of course, not missing out the BookXcess in Kong Heng as well.

Penang - What to do in Penang?

Coffee at Norm Micro Roastery

We're finally on the island! I loved Norm from my previous trip so this time we headed to their newer Norm Micro Roastery. The place is very big and the sunlight coming down from the high ceiling is so perfect for photos!

Address: 13, Gat Lebuh Gereja, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang

Still full from the noodles earlier so only ordered tiramisu and iced coffee to cool down with.

Breakfast at Cecil Street Market

Apart from the cafes, you should definitely explore the local cuisine when in Penang! One must-have is char koay teow and I highly recommend this duck egg char koay teow at Cecil Street Market. While you're there, the koay teow th'ng and curry laksa are also amazing!!

Address: 40-48, Lebuh Cecil, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang

Countryside Stables Penang

We drove all the way to the other side of the island for this!! This is an absolute heaven for horse lovers: the place is huge with lots of horses, ponies and donkeys roaming around. You can get close to them, pat them and feed them at ease as they're mostly friendly. You can also pay more for a guided horse ride around the compound.

Address: Lot 10050, Jalan Sungai Burung, Kampung Sungai Burung, 11000 Balik Pulau, Pulau Pinang

Sunset at the Beach

On the way back from the stables, we wanted to drop by Ferringhi beach but stumbled upon this beach near Tropical Spice Garden that was quieter. We ended up watching the sunset there.

Rimba Lab Nursery & Plant Cafe

Here's something that we can't find in KL (yet)! We've been to Jetty35 before but this cafe is new. With Tania's current obsession with plants, we simply HAD to visit this place. The entire shop is literally filled with plants you can sit and have coffee with. The owner is super duper friendly and there's a plant sifu to chat with. If you're having issues with your plant, you can drop it at Rimba Lab's 'plant hospital' too.

Address: (Inside Jetty35) 35, Pengkalan Weld, 10300, George Town, Penang

Rimba Lab plant cafe Penang

Aside from the nursery, it's also a lovely cafe serving drinks and cakes. Can you please look at the setup?? This place is so Insta-worthy from any angle.

Taiping Lake Gardens

Taiping Lake Gardens

Otw back from Penang to KL, we dropped by Taiping Lake Gardens for a brief walk. In the mornings you can see many people from young to old here exercising, taking photos of birds or simply enjoying the morning air.

OYO RG Heritage Boutique, George Town, Penang Review

Looking for accommodation in Penang for your next trip? Look no further as we explored one of the OYO chains on the island - OYO RG Heritage Boutique!

Like much of Penang, the beauty of this heritage building has been retained. Walking in from the bustling streets, it was a relief to find this serene garden with lush trees shading us from the afternoon sun.

OYO RG Heritage Boutique Penang
At night, the courtyard is transformed with soft music and warm string lights inviting you in for a star-lit dinner. There is a restaurant and bar downstairs but also street food conveniently outside.

It has all the basic amenities you need - a good shower, air conditioning, hairdryer, fridge, TV, kettle and clean towels. Wi-fi is also provided so you can stay connected with your friends and family.

I have a habit of waking up early on trips so I chose to have a morning coffee before we headed out. It is a short car ride away from many hotspots like Gurney Drive, Belle and Cream, Penang Jetty, Wonderfood Museum, Nasi Kandar Line Clear and Fort Cornwallis.
