Acne Scars Be Gone

Hey there!

This is just a monthly update on my acne scars journey, as I showed you my before after face when consuming a Vitamin C supplement. Be prepared to see my gross face.



The above picture was taken on 19th January 2018 and the bottom picture was taken on 19th February 2018. No significant differences but if you look closely, I have few acne scars that faded. And this is amazing. Wanting a quick result is risky and dangerous, so I prefer taking my time and let it heal slowly. I am truly happy because I can just stick to consuming Vitamin C and not worry whether it’ll work or not because it will. This is my 2nd month on Hakubi White C Plus.

Have a good day!


Write it up

Hello friends!

My colleagues have been the most generous people on Earth. We get to eat cake once a month when we celebrate those with birthdays that month, on some days, they’d bring food and snacks, some would treat us with Mcdonalds, and our lady boss also gave the office free KFC and pizza. To stick with my diet seems nearly impossible. I should avoid all the free food but the temptation is too strong. To add the destruction that happened to my body, I spent my CNY holidays eating pizza, maggi, junk foods, while watching Netflix. I completed all episodes on Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, and a few more movies and TV-shows that I watched halfway. Diet? Fuck it. (Secretly planned to fast for a few days in hope I can shed a few kilos) 

13 Reasons Why is just sad and mysterious throughout the 13 episodes.  I’ve watched sad movies, but they usually include a few comedy in it, but 13 Reasons Why is just pure sadness. I won’t say I cried watching it, having the similar experience as Hannah Baker does not make me cry surprisingly. The more I watched, the more I hate Hannah. Oh God forgive me. And I feel so relieved that I finished high school!

Alright, I just wrote a paid article 2 months ago, and you can read it here

Ah its just a simple article but I learned my mistakes while writing it, and hopefully it’ll pave my way to writing better.

No pay leave

I worked for 2 months now and I finally took my first leave, a no pay leave, since I’m still under probation. God bless! I actually have a doctor’s appointment today plus I gotta go to KL to pick up my shoes, so I feel kinda proud for not simply taking leaves. I have a solid reason for this one day no pay leave haha. A small matter but means a lot to me because I always skip classes back in pre-U. To discipline mysef to come to work, heck I am now used to waking up early guys 😭 The same routine since high school but early mornings routine never stuck with me, and only now that I’m working it did. Better late then never I guess?

I just want to share how my day goes with you all 💃🏻


The desserts are from Bisou Bake Shop at Bangsar Village II, loveeee the Vanilla cupcake, but not the Pandan Gula Melaka cake. I have eaten the cupcake before and I still love it. I tried the Pandan Gula Melaka slice today and instantly regret the decision. Waste of RM10 and added my calories count 😂 There are better PGM cake elsewhere but not here.

The burger pic. BURGER! This was my first time trying out Bistro Benji’s at Bangsar Village as well, and damn the portion is big. Fried Chicken Burger ; RM28. I didn’t order any drinks as I had my drinks earlier, and they still served me plain water. They put a bottle of 1L I think. I thought to myself, that the service charge would probably be a lot if they give such a good service and free water! But I was wrong, the bill was RM28. All the extra charges are already included. And then I got RM20 voucher for when I eat there again, with minimum RM50 spent. LOVE! The burger was satisfying, the chicken patty compliments well with the veges, and the fries oh God, soooo good. The fries doesn’t taste plain & boring at all.

✨How do you spend your annual leave?

Meal Prep Dilemma

I just got back from the gym when I was writing this. I ghosted my gym. I went missing for weeks, but today I’m back! I realized that my stamina has all gone downhill so I started with squats, crunches and weights before doing any intense cardio.

✨Reminder : Never skip gym for more than 3 days. You’ll start slacking and it’ll be hard to start over.

My payday is approaching and I am planning to eat clean (said and done many times and lasted for 3 weeks top). I was deciding between ordering a meal plan from a healthy food delivery website here in Malaysia but was taken aback when I look at the price. After browsing through several websites, the average price for a heavy meal is around RM15-RM22. Dude, that’s like eating lunch at Secret Recipe everyday. I myself never spend more than RM5 during lunch hour plus I always bring my own food cause I hate going out when its scorching. I’d rather buy thosai or roti telur which costs less than RM3. Stingy lil bitch.

At the same time I am just so tempted with the pretty tupperware/lunch box provided 😂 So Instagram-worthy. But to spend almost RM200 for like 10-12 meals is just pffffffffttttt mindblowing. Lemme show you.



img_1249 is the ultimate Instagram-worthy and like super fancy food so far I’ve seen. Hence the price starting from RM21. They have the Prime meal plan where you get 10 meals, and you can choose anything on the website without extra charges (the meals are amazing) for RM199. has this Weight Loss 12 meals package for only RM190. Less RM10 with 2 extra meals. You can choose the menu for each carbohydrate, protein, and vegetables section. Not much option or variation if you’re like me, picky and there are certain meal that I just can’t imagine enjoying. So you have to repeat the same carbs/protein/veges if some of the options aren’t your taste.

But if you’re interested well then go ahead and let me know how they taste hehehe. And of course you can purchase a single meal from the websites. Today I did my own homework to see whether it’ll be cheaper when I cook my own meal prep. My only problem is, I am lazy to cook. I took extra 10 minutes before waking up every morning so I can’t imagine waking up even earlier to cook. But then again hence the meal prepping! I read that the experienced meal prepper choose to cook on Sunday & Wednesday. You prepare for 3 days of meal first and not for a week straight because we want the food to be as fresh as it can.

This is my grocery shopping list :


RM130 plus minus lah. This includes breakfast (cereal & milk) andddddd fruits! The rest are the ingredients to cook which I bet can last for weeks. I forgot to survey on the protein though! Haha. I walked out of Tesco realizing that I forgot to look at the price of a dory or mackerel fish. Now my estimated grocery price are not complete. Sigh. I plan to cook only fish dishes as I’m avoiding chicken as per advised by my doctor. The ingredients are based on a few recipes I referred from Jamie Oliver’s website such as :

• Grill Masala Fish

• Asian style fish

• Fish Fingers

• Simple baked fish

• Salmon Nicoise

I think I’m going to go with meal prepping on my own guys. Oh by the way from the meal prepping guides I read, buy a tupperware/container with dividers so you can preserve the food longer, as it won’t become mixed and mushy, and also if you’re like me, you’ll look forward to eating healthy when you see that pretty lunch box aite haha. I start small so I don’t get too excited about this, let’s do it for 2 weeks first. Having short term planning is better than a long term to avoid any chickening out halfway through the diet.

Leave him.


We can go through sleepless nights talking about the characteristic of a man that we would want to be in a serious relationship with, but there’s this one type that should be avoided. In fact, don’t even consider into being serious with him at first sight.

He who degrades.

He’s got a 10/10 profile, educated, stable job, rich perhaps, and a hot bod. What could go wrong? I actually experienced this myself, getting to know this kind of a man, only to be disappointed after awhile. As you all know, I have acne scars scattered on my cheeks & you can see them in my previous posts. So this particular guy texted me out of the thin air, having no direction towards my acne scars issue, he said to me “Rusty hair, acne-prone face.”


I was stunned. Ok I do know my face is problematic (the rusty hair tho, like you mean dark brown? are you colour blind?!) so why remind me again? I have lots of mirror in my house. (In fact I have 5) Haha. See this is my point guys. Imagine yourself posing in front of the mirror, tryna hype yourself up, asking the perfect guy you love, “Sweetheart, how do you think I look today?” To only be replied with, “Rusty hair, and acne-prone face.” Literally translates to go fuck yourself. Rarely did he ever compliment me. This is so negative to even begin with. Criticism is normal and should be accepted. But this is degrading. Imagine again being with a person who often degrades you, how draining it must be, your energy spent on arguments and feeling insecure all the time.

A relationship should be mutually beneficial. You bring out the best of each other. You grow mentally and physically. You slay and you never stop, the two of you conquering the world one step at a time. So my issue is that he never apologize. He didn’t even realize what he said was hurtful and just fucking rude. All I got was “I don’t give a damn.” from the motherfucker. I won’t reveal who he is but I have no shame in sharing with you all about this. I feel the need to remind you in case one of you might be in the same situation. I almost let this go, thinking how he is just so perfect as a husband one day, so maybe I should just forgive him and let it go. Take a step back now ye moron! Don’t do that. Never tolerate. You deserve someone who sees the good in you and even when he sees the bad, he will stand by your side, guiding you into being a better one.

What I am so pissed about is that he knows I spent a lot of money and time to fix my skin, and yet he criticized. He degrades. Almost 6 months spent on swallowing pills, and then buying vitamins, going for facial treatment, and I finally can see the light. Hahaha. I’m almost there guys, kicking the acne down the curb, only left with the scars. Do not ever settle for less. You may feel like you’re letting a very great man go, but you should know that you’re giving yourself a future on being with a person who will look at you and tell you how beautiful you are, every single day. Or maybe twice a week. Haha!

My acne scars fade in a month.

What? ACNE SCARS TAKE FOREVER TO DISAPPEAR. After battling with my acne by consuming Doxycycline for 5 months, I won the battle and I am left with one pimple on my left cheek. Both of my cheeks are now filled with acne scars. HUNDREDS OF EM’.

From my research, Vitamin C is the best for treating hyperpigmentation or acne scars/dark spots. It is available in the form of serum and tablets, so I go for both. At first I bought Hiruscar Post-Acne gel, I’m not sure if it works, the progress is slow so after 2 tube I stopped. Then I bought Hakubi White C Plus supplement. I think the best way to get rid of the acne scars is from inside out. There are many Vitamin C supplements out there but which one gives a rapid result (In a safe way)? I asked a pharmacist and she said yes you can consume any Vitamin C, but she suggest this Hakubi supplement as she gets good review from those who’ve tried it. (The pharmacist is not a promoter of any product btw.) I am also in no way of promoting anything, just take a look at my pictures below.

The first picture is on 9th December 2017 and the second is on 30th December 2017. Ok so less than a month??? You can see the difference on your own. I seriously didn’t notice this until I look at the before picture. I have been taking comparison photos ever since I got severe acne and put it all in an album titled Doxycycline Journey hahaha. I want to see progress.

So this is the product :

*It is not halal certificated but it dont have any animal derivative

Bought it from Watsons for RM90 on promo but the original price is RM122. Yes I also know the name “White C Plus” sounds like I’m obsessed with getting a whiter skin but no guys, I just want to make my acne scars disappear. Also, I am used to drinking 3L of water everyday. Water is necessary for better results, and don’t just drink water because you want it to work, but make it as your routine, your savior, for your own health. I won’t be continuing using this product, don’t get me wrong, it really works, but I am going for a new supplement that is for both hair & skin. Saves money on my side hehe. The new supplement I got contains the same key ingredients as in Hakubi, so I am glad on that part, just that the amount is lesser. I will be reviewing the new local product in a month or two, to see if it works. Hopefully it does from all the great reviews I read!

Head on to my Instagram, @juliannaong to see what my favorite local brand lipstick and best drugstore foundation that I personally tried and love!

Entering the corporate world


I landed with a job in a corporate company about a week after I finished my final exam. I have already been searching for a job through MauKerja website and occasional walk ins, which leads me to a few interviews. There are only 2 reasons I didn’t get or want the jobs I applied previously,

  1. The salary is too low
  2. I’m not the suitable candidate

I was greedy. Julianna is a greedy little bitch. I search high and low for a job that will give me sufficient experience and something new to learn, alongside providing a better salary than the jobs I worked before. There are EPF & SOCSO that will be futher deducted from my salary, I am not greedy to spend the money, but to only make sure that I still have a reasonable amount left when deducted for me to put aside as savings. But I am worried as well as I don’t have any experience doing office work, had I only worked in places like Watsons, tuition teacher, beauty promoter, and retail sales related jobs. Interviews for those job are informal. This time, I prepared my resume a month before my finals end, and I excitedly applied to the jobs on MauKerja website, going to interviews, to only stumble when the interviewer asked me, “So tell me a little bit about yourself.” My mind went blank for 15 seconds. I’m not sure what to say, should I repeat what I typed on my resume? But its all there, so what’s the point asking me again? I went on with introducing my name and talking about my personality and previous working experience. It was short. I think I am doomed.

I went home face-palming at myself, and clicked on Youtube, Google for ways to introduce myself properly. My point is, now that I have learned it the embarrassing way, just a reminder to you and myself in the future, to always do your research because when you think you know enough already, you don’t. A few days later, I received a call from an insurance company I applied through the MauKerja, and passed the phone interview. There’s a second interview afterwards at the office located at a high tower building in the centre of Klang. They told me the interview would take about 3 hours, so I thought wow, this is a very serious and formal company. Little did I know that they did not describe thoroughly what the job I am applying for on the website, as I walked in to being pitched through a presentation that took 2 hours, telling me about a 10 years plan of being their insurance company partner. You know how annoying and persuading insurance people are right? I hate being one that’s for sure. Surprisingly, I was being honest the entire time, telling them how I have zero knowledge about insurance, how I am not sure if I am covered by insurance, or how I never buy into what an insurance sales person sell, but I think they like my honesty. Well I am a terrible liar anyway, so I cannot lie about things I don’t know.

Ok long story short, one day, I plan to enter every office in the BBT North Tower and apply for a job. While I’m at the 3rd floor, this particular office had already called me for an interview right away. The next day, Julianna starts working! I am your receptionist cum admin clerk. I have never did any office work before, so trust me when I say I am blur as fuck and just keep on trying to absorb everything as fast as I can. I wrote notes on Post-It and sticked it on the inside of my counter table until there’s no space left. I refer to my supervisor about anything I don’t understand, including how to transfer a phone call from a person to the other. That’s how stupid I am. It will annoy them I know, but to avoid mistakes I must do so. And I really enjoy learning from her, she trained me well with patience, and never once did she judged me for my dressing, or how I mistakenly called an older staff by her name, (Malays use Kak-female/Abang-male as a sign of respect to anyone older) (watched too much of The Good Wife).

I drink 2L of water everyday in the office, and another 1L at home. I pee for every 500mL I drank. And I have to inform my senior staff everytime I have to go to the toilet, how embarrassing, so she can replace me if anything. A simple job, one of the lower rank jobs compared to others in the office, but a big challenge for me, with many small details to remember, such as asking a Dato’ every morning when he enters if he wants a newspaper, or preparing drinks for when the partners of the company comes from overseas, those details. Communicating has been easy for me, but I still have a nerve wrack for every first time.

Do you all remember your first time working? How was it?

Counting days till 2018

I have been craving for the Terengganu keropok lekor for weeks but I settled for the usual keropok lekor sold at pasar malam. One day I bought a burger at the Ramly Mart, they sell both frozen products and have their own food kiosk, so I tried their keropok lekor. You know how Terengganu one is different from the usual right? It has more fish and tastes sooooo much better. Guess what! Ramly sells their own Terengganu keropok lekor for only RM6.80 a packet! Its hard for me not having a direct supply of keropok lekor from Terengganu so I’ll accept this haha.

It has been almost 4 months of me taking Doxycycline for my severe acne and I can say I am satisfied with it. There’s only 3-4 acne left on my cheeks, and the rest are acne scars. WHICH FRUSTRATES ME THE MOST. Scars take forever to completely disappear. I am now using Hiruscar Post Acne Gel and Hakubi White C plus (vitamin C supplement) to treat the scars. From my research, vitamin C is the best source to treat scars. There’s plenty of it in the form of serum and supplements, so choose which suits you best. I am happier now that when I put on makeup, the acne bumps are no longer there. I do struggle with dry skin and yes the scars of course. I don’t have the skills to cover em up with makeup yet 😂

And exams over! Phewww. 9 months long break before degree so I plan to work, lose weight, read more, and focus on building myself mentally also physically. We have a month left before 2018 begins, so let’s finish 2017 strong. I aim to workout intensely and do a strict diet, because I want to end 2017 feeling proud of myself. For now I am alternating between working out and eating afterwards so…..bitch when will you stop eating?!

What’s your plan?
