Gong Xi Gong Xi awesomesauces!
Chinese New Year is upon us in few days time, and to say everyone is excited seems to be an understatement, myself included. I’ve been taking advantage of the CNY sales to shop, and eating all the mandarin oranges I can. And festivals equals celebrations, and so I bring you my very first CNY Party with The Butterfly Project Malaysia and Yadah Skincare & Cosmetics Malaysia held at the Little Wonton Bar.
Read up and find out what Yadah is all about, and a surprise is waiting for my readers at the end of the post!
A New Year means changes, along with resolutions to unveil a brand New You, and this was what Yadah & The Butterfly Project wanted all the girls to experience. And if you haven’t heard of Yadah, they are a Korean based skincare & cosmetics brand which offers gentle yet effective botanical skincare range, 100% free from artificial coloring, preservatives, mineral oil, sulphate and animal extracts. Their skincare range is based on natural plant extracts like essential oils,floral water, barks and traditional herbs that work in perfect harmony with the skin.
Lets head over to the Yadah CNY party and check out the exciting happenings.
A splash of red was the dress code of the day, and guess what? I realized I have no red coloured clothing. Dang it! I ended up wearing the closest thing to a red dress I could find in my closet, a high-lo, maroon coloured, Peter Pan collared dress from H&M.
The little girl in my hands, that’s Yadah, the official mascot of the Yadah brand! 😉
A quick view of Little Wonton. Gives me the old China feels!
The highlights of the party? From product testing to product comparison and the finale of a bowl of wonton noodle soup eating competition, we unveiled the long lastingness of using Yadah’s products.
Activity 1: Testing the Yadah Bubble Deep Cleanser, RM49 (150ml)
We drew a stroke of pencil eyeliner & liquid eyeliner of the back of our hands, and applied a pump of the Bubble Deep Cleanser. The cleanser smells very much like an orange, with a very citrusy scent that lingers. A few quick circular rubs later, and ALL the eyeliner has disappeared. Now I know why this cleanser is Yadah’s bestseller product! It doesn’t dry out your skin and skin is left feeling softer and much cleaner.
Activity 2: Testing the Yadah Lip Tint Balm (Wonton Noodle Soup Eating Competition)
Two lucky girls were asked to test out the Lip Tint Balm by applying the balm, and having to eat a whole bowl of noodles in less than 30 seconds. As you can see, Jennifer (on the right) swallowed her bowl of noodles outright and still had the balm on her lips after that! The balm definitely DOES NOT budge one bit at all even after all that slurping and gobbling! Jennifer won the eating contest, but both ladies walked away with the Yadah Ampoules!
Activity 3: Testing ABC sunblocks
We had 3 types of sunblocks to test and give our opinions on. I tried on all 3, and this is what I think. Type A has a very light texture, but was too fair on my skin, and I didn’t like the scent so much. Type B had a medium texture, and smelt really yummy, and blended right into my skin. Type C was way too heavy, and the colour was just too dark on me. But it smelt nice though 🙂
Shall I reveal the identities of the sunblock?
- Type A was Yadah’s older version of sunblock, their Sun Cream
- Type B is Yadah’s latest product called ‘Oh My Sunblock’
- Type C is Brand X, He Who Must Not Be Named
Type B,which is Yadah’s latest baby, has not been released in the market yet, and I so excited that I got to try it out, and even take a full sized one home. The sunblock is a daily-wear colorless and highly moisturizing sunscreen that offers high-level protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays for all skin types and is gentle even for the most sensitive skin. It is also free from the 8 harmful chemical ingredients: Paraben, Benzophenone, Talc, Mineral Oil, Sulfate, Surfactant, Propylene Glycol, Tar Colorant, and Triethanolamine.
We had many more of Yadah’s products to test out and experience, and I love the fact that Yadah had all the products on hand for us to test and use. They were really friendly, and took the time to talk to each and every one of us, and explained the concept behind Yadah and how their product works to provide a healthier, brighter looking complexion. Using the products, touching, smelling, feeling the items definitely helps me make an informed judgement before buying any product, so kudos to Yadah!

And of course, no party is complete without yummy snacks and food na, and the menu of the day?
Yummy Spicy Noodles. Mine was Spicy Thai 😉 The black charcoal noodles, combined with spicy Thai sauce really had my taste buds going crazy!
These interesting babies were the sweet and savoury wontons, some of them contain Kaya Banana, Banana Chocolate, Mushroom Onion Cheese & Sausage Tomato Cheese. I tried each and every one of them, I was really hungry okay, and they tasted absolutely scrumptious!
And in conjunction with the New Year, New You motto, we wrote down our New Year Resolutions on a lantern, and here’s hoping all of them come true. *Do forgive the horrible writing*
And as always, we got to try bring home a goodie bag containing Yadah’s products! One thing I really loved was the fact that most of the products were given to us in full size! Don’t you just get annoyed when you get a 5 ml sample to try? Thank you Yadah for being so generous!! The products came in an eco friendly tote bag that was specially flown from Korea to this party as goodie bags, which means that they aren’t available here in Malaysia. And of course CNY is never complete without angpao giving, and thanks to Sasa Malaysia, Sasa vouchers were given out to all of us 😉
What did I receive in my goodie bag? More Yadah products!!
Clockwise: Yadah Oh My Sunblock, RM49, Yadah Brightening Ampoules, Yadah Sweet Milky Tint, RM25, Yadah Anti T-Soothing Emulsion.
Oh My Sunblock is only launching at the end of January!
