Limited Edition Althea Ketupat Box Contest

Limited Edition Althea Ketupat Box
Only for Althea Malaysia, Singapore & Indonesia

This year we have decided to do something unusually different for a change. Instead of your festive design box for the Eid celebration, we have decided to take on a quirky path to introduce a popular food that is traditionally served at open houses during Hari Raya or Eid this festive season.

What is “Ketupat” ?

“Ketupat” is a rice cake dumpling wrapped in a diamond-shaped pouch using coconut fronds. Originating in Indonesia, it is also found in Malaysia and Singapore. During festive occasions such as Hari Raya, it is traditionally served with a delicious dry curry stew called “rendang” to guests during open houses. Ketupat is also used as a festive decoration during this time.

Introducing the limited edition Althea Ketupat Box, a giant-size version of the popular ketupat that you could use as a fashion accessory or festive decoration at home.  Available in three different box sizes-small, big, and extra-large. Each size will have a different color theme inside (light green, light yellow, and light purple). 

These boxes are given free for qualifying orders made on Althea Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia during the festive period, while stocks last. Qualifying orders simply meant your order can fit into any of these box sizes before shipping. Lesser or small items will be packed in Althea Air which is a bubble pack to protect your items from being damaged during transit. 

Tip: Buy big items or many items so your order can be packed into a box!

Earth Day Special : Beauty and The Earth

Earth Day & K-beauty

Since its creation in 1970, Earth Day aims to bring awareness to climate change and pollution among everyone, aiming to inspire consumers and companies to help preserve our planet for future generations. It's important for us to be more aware of how we live and how we affect our environment, not only so that we are always aware of how fragile our planet is, but also so that we can live a more healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

In conjunction with Earth Day (22nd April) we would like to share two ways on how we can help support a greener lifestyle when it comes to beauty products:

  1. Using and supporting vegan & cruelty-free brands
  2. Upcycling & recycling old product containers (empties)


2021 Spring Makeup Picks

2021 Spring Makeup Picks

Annyeong Altheans! The flowers have blossomed and spring has arrived! Although most of us are still keeping our distance and staying safe, some of us have started going back into the world (be it for work, school, or just in general).

Today, we will be sharing all about our new favorite makeup items that are worth checking out.


Interview with Mardhiah Ismail

Hello My Name is Mardhiah of maddybrags_

Makeup or skincare? Which would you say comes first? Our Angel all the way from Malaysia shares why she thinks skincare is as important as makeup in our interview. Hailing from Kelantan, this gentle and bubbly Malaysian started her humble beginnings as a beauty blogger, youtube, and reviewer on Instagram with resources she already has thanks to her sister's advice! 👧

We all know how we started and it is a struggle to show our craft. You don't need high-tech equipment or fancy props as long you know your stuff! Now she has a following of over 20k (woohoo!) 🎉

This is why we admire Maddy, as she brags about her beauty products on her Instagram showing her amazing eye makeup skills and the importance of skincare to prep your face as a canvas before makeup 💖


The Laneige Cream Skin Range

Interview with Prelel Yu

Hello My Name is Prelel of prelel

💖Our next Angel feature is Prelel Yu from the Philippines. She's one of the cutest beauty bloggers ever with her cute cosplays and all things pink and just kawaii! A Korean beauty junkie, Prelel is also an avid Althea shopper right from the start. With her love and support, we just couldn't get enough of how big and fluffy her heart is.

Her feed is filled with all the skincare and makeup reviews she posted, all with an added touch of "prelel" as she sprinkles magical stars 🌟and soft pink to adorn her feed like a fairy garden. She's definitely skincare obsessed as her reviews are honest and detailed and sometimes accompanied with a blog post for her followers to read more (bcoz we know IG can only have that much text space!)

If we could only hug this ball of sugar, we would! Check out her blog at as she is also a lifestyle and parenting blogger on 🎀


Interview with Myra

Hello My Name is Myra of myrabeautydiary

Hailing from a place where all magical staycations happen, our Angel from East Malaysia is no stranger to the beauty scene at the tropical sunny Kota Kinabalu. With a myriad of skincare reviews on her feed, Myra does her am and pm diligently on a daily basis using skincare products tried and tested by her as we watched her IG live one fine day to get to understand her better!

With skin that's prone to breakout, you will notice that Myra's into soothing products such as Laneige's Cica Sleeping Mask and green tea. She even has our skin calming relief range! As such if we were to crown her the soothing queen, she would be at the top of our list.

Her feed is like a playground of skincare products so we kinda know why her feed is called myra beauty diary 💖
