Click this picture to go to our NEW platform!

Hi all, yes, we have decided to make a move. We love both platforms, but there is always some gives and takes in life. It’s never perfect and complete (that’s the fun part about it!). We will be blogging on a new platform. Please do support us! All things are (almost) the same, the same nice feeling, the same beautiful pictures and the most awesome luminous things that we will be sharing more with you (there). Will miss this space very much, nonetheless. It has been a great journey here. Will chart a new course over the other side *_^

So, please visit us NOW! See you all and happy blogging!

[Instagram] Exciting Past Few Weeks

insta collage8The past few weeks had been great! At LUMINNEJ, we were invited to a few events –  h2O+ ambassadress and ambassador/new product launch, NARS very first boutique opening at Pavilion KL. For my production work, we got a chance to work with the hip hop rapper Joe Flizzow for a music video of the latest installment of local director Brando Lee’s film, Kisah Paling Gengster. Personally, my sister-in-law came back from UK for a visit (and I got my  early X’MAS present delivered!) and we had a good time (mainly eating >_<) with the family. Everyone came together.

giftLife is short, I have learnt it the hard way recently, after losing someone I loved very deeply and dearly. I made it a point to tell myself, to do the things that make me happy, or get me one step closer to my dreams, no matter how small that step maybe, or how insignificant it may seem. The rest, the universe will take care of itself. Surround myself with good company and enjoy the time. It is always a blessing to be able to live, just another day.

We truly appreciate all the support given to LUMINNEJ here, be it our readers, our friends (near or far), or even the clients and brands that have given us the opportunity to be featured and work together with, share the joy and love for all things beautiful, through this little space of ours. Thanks to you all! Some exciting events coming up next too, and we can’t wait for it to take place. Big hugs ^_^

[Instagram] So Much Have Gone By

insta collage7It’s been a while since I updated what’s been happening on my IG. Been to a great make-up session with RMK by Japanese make-up artist, Masaaki Abe himself recently, had such great fun, then bought myself a pair of colourful Zara heels! Been addicted to this Korean drama called The Master’s Sun starring the gorgeous looking So Ji Sub and cute Gong Hyo Jin (so, my Wednesday and Thursday nights are off limits, even my TV lover-hubby also stepped aside to let me have my “dating” time with the leads and their ghost friends!). I was extremely excited to also roll out LUMINNEJ very first giveaway, a collaboration with Cle De Peau BEAUTE Malaysia. (Still waiting for entry to pour in *_^) and of course, was invited to attend the inaugural local Mandarin film industry’s Golden Wau Awards 2013 ceremony. There, I met up with new talents, model cum actress Tracy Cheong, among others. It was glamourous indeed.

Am really looking forward to more new things happening with LUMINNEJ and hope to achieve more here, be it making new friends, or working with new partners to share the passion about all things beautiful. Above all, hope to connect with different people out there. A big thanks for all my readers (thought not many yet, at this point, haha but I am grateful) and hope you will stay with me, on this journey of making LUMINNNEJ a better lifestyle blog, each day, everyday, with small little steps, at a time. More on RMK here, Cle De Peau BEAUTE here and The Master’s Sun here.

As always, stay luminous and happy, always!

The Beautiful World of Instagram

IG collage1I LOVE instagram! Seriously. I love that it allows me to explore the wonders of the world, through others’ eyes, all around me. It fascinates me to see how others capture a piece of their world, how they creatively interpret a piece of their reality. It’s amazing indeed how technology has brought us closer, as human beings and how photography has evolved over time.

IG collage2At one hand, the advent of apps, mobile phone have allowed us more freedom to be creative, at another level, it does deconstruct the traditional way of painstakingly taking that one perfect picture that it may seem “nothing at all” for us now to just snap away as everything has become digital. Let’s embrace technology and the convenience it brings us, but more so, the FUN that it offers, for me, to have the opportunity to make friends with those beyond my physical reach, yet, I believe we all share the same passion at IG, to take good pictures and to share our world to others, to communicate through still shots (and now video!)

IG collage4IG collage3Here are some of my favourite IG profiles whom I follow (in no particular order). I love them all for different reasons! Check them out. They have such amazing work! Meanwhile, I do hope that you follow my journey too, on IG here. Till we meet on the virtual world, see you there! Note: Of course, I have many others whom I like (which are equally excellent), will let you all know next time around *_^lumi sign off with love cropped

[Instagram] Days Without The Boys

ImageDo I miss them, yes and no. My boys were away at their grandparents place up North for the school holidays last week. Had some time to kill. Did my fair share of window shopping, instagrammED more pictures, perhaps, and had a bit more time for myself. Whenever they are around, my attention would be on them more, naturally. Not a bad thing at all, I adore my two little boys (though they are so grown up **and bigger in sizes** by now). Well, like most people say, they will forever be your little kids!

Good food (home cooked and eating out), good time, good catching up with certain things but great that now they are back home, with us!

Hope you had a great week before and happy week ahead. Stay luminous, always *_^

[Instagram] A Little More Time, Please

ImageHow does one drain out that sense of sadness and leave behind the residue of a little happiness? It was a rocky one last week for me, knowing that someone as close and very dear to me in my heart as a moon to the sun is fast fading into the abyss of eternal mortality, and knowing that I can do nothing about it, except for spending a little more time. Each moment seems like a torment, physical and emotional. Her face and body says it all. From the depth of my heart, I know I don’t say it enough, but I really really do LOVE you, to the ends of the world. It is all right, it will be all right. You will always be here, close to my heart.

Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu

[Instagram] The Week of Falling Behind on IG

ImageDon’t know why, there were less pictures took with my iphone than pictures taken with my camera. Perhaps I was caught up with using the camera these days for the blog:)) But my usual routine would still be browsing through the pictures I follow on IG. Love all of them as they are the windows to my world beyond where I am currently based. So nice and refreshing to see things from others’ perspectives. Hope you had a great week, and an awesome week ahead! I love my sky from my window. They seem whimsical at times.

Stay cool and happy, all the time.

Oh by the way, just bumped into this. An article at Communications by Arik Hanson intrigues me. Now I know the reasons why most of us (and big brands too!) are on IG. Click here to see why! Burberry-IG

[Instagram] A week of reflection

ImageContemplating and looking at how new things have come along, and how I can re-work on on-going things to bring it to another level. Life is strange, perhaps one needs to let go a little to see what new discoveries will come back. Maybe holding on too tight is not a good thing after all. Let it flow… like water, my friend. That was what Bruce Lee said in his interview in a Discovery Channel documentary called I AM BRUCE LEE (Love it!). I love this guy, I love his passion for life, I love his style, his confidence and most of all, I love his intellectuality and his determination to succeed and be a better person, each day. He is now, my new HERO. I salute you, Bruce Lee. No wonder, you are such a legend as your spirit lives on, till this day. Fighting, Jenn!

Have a magical week ahead, my friends *_^Image

[Instagram] The Week Via IG

The past week have been pretty busy, basically, getting this new blog up and running, never taken so many pictures in a week in my life! BUT, I am enjoying it. Who am I kidding? I have always wanted to start this, now it has finally come true. I am glad and thanks so much for those of you out there, who have read, commented and followed me. Keep reading and I would most definitely love to hear from you, how to make this space even better.

As always, stay luminous and be happy *_^
