Fuel Shack - Seksyen 13, AEON Shah Alam


The moment I am out of my house, all I can think of is food. Food. Yes please. The first thing that strikes for instantly waking up my food desire. You can't blame me. Do you know how tiring it is eating your own cooking, literally, day in day out? Tell me about it, wish my other half-half will cook, hell-hack, maybe in my dreams, or he will never ever, let me just leave it as it is, instead of for no apparent reason rocking and rolling my marriage (Chayo Restaurant & Cafe. Kelana Jaya). Aside to whether husbands should also cook or not, on this day, my morning tummy tucking story was captured in "The Coffee & Bar", thereafter, late lunch in "Olive Garden", and prior to returning home, I wanted to pack food back because I tend to like this whole concept of coming home with food for dinner, and then sitting back to relax after a tiring day of walking, of course, food should never ever be tiring for our palates.

Melaka - Jonker Walk (Part 3)


Inconclusive. Our walking mission from one corner of Jonker Walk to the other for another overnight stay (Melaka Jonker Walk Part 2) didn't get us anywhere. Unfortunately. We did in fact, viewed quite a number of home stays, some of it highly recommended in online travelling platforms (Melaka Jonker Walk Part 1 & Portuguese Settlement). However, despite almost two hours of walking, at the same time popping in and our of the home stays, we concluded that its such a waste to our time. All we ended up with was not only sweat dripping, our legs too almost ripped, fell apart. Still, mission was not halted, who knows we may discover a home stay we will be pleased with, at this juncture, to wind down our momentum and for a cool burst down our dry throat and tongue, we unanimously we agreed for Melaka Cendol and Melaka Ice Kacang in Jonker 88. Absolutely. Melaka dessert game on.

Pyeongchang/Yongjin - (Korea Day 6)


Breathtaking overnight in Alpensia Resort. Spacious clean room, packaged alongside quite a spacious balcony. Compared to some of the previous rooms where I felt as though I was locked up in a North Korean hell hole. Tiny window and cramped rooms with hardly space to move around, thank god I could find no fault on cleanliness and equipped well with literally the things I generally look forward to (Pyeonchang Korea Day 5). In Alpensia Resort, I appreciated the fact that it was worth paying for this rather pricey tour. Mind you, for me especially, because I am a single room occupant, I have, as usual, coughed out extra Malaysian Ringgit (Korea Day 1 & Jeju Island Day 2). Therefore, my room with a balcony utterly happily shattered my night away. Albeit I can't exactly tell you how long I was at the balcony, either standing or seated on the chair, I exceptionally loved it. Imagine? Imagine breathing mountainous fresh air (Nami Island & Jeju Island), at the same time loving the chilly breeze gently blowing all over you? Oh-wow, serendipitous.

Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Flawless Face Lotion


Time just flew by. It did. In the air I have been breathing. Polluted air, indeed, environment is already disastered, thanks to my educated, rich and famed neighbours for walking their dogs on my outside herb garden, also, for allowing their cats to poo in my compound and for throwing rubbish anywhere they like, at their own whims and fancies. So called high end neighborhood but resided by low mentality people, I actually should be grateful I am alive despite breathing polluted air. Maybe, its still tolerable, for the time being, compared to trying my utter best in accepting the fact that four years had passed by at the glimpse of my eyes since I gave up my full time job. Then again, if I didn't let go of my career I was absolutely passionate about, can you imagine what would have been the outcome? Polluted air, coupled with working at work, working from home,working during weekends, literally work ruling and ruining my health? Actually, come to think of it, I should count my blessings. I had a choice to hack aside my job instead of being among those whose can't. Those who work because they want to step and kill each other for promotion, those who work to support their high and might lifestyle or those who have to work for family commitments. Thank god, I am spared.

Olive Garden - AEON Mall, Seksyen 13 (Shah Alam)


Over to AEON Mall after the hearty breakfast in “The Coffee & Bar". Nothing really on my mind, I am by the way not someone who aimlessly walk around shopping malls for no apparent reason. Gone are the days of giving into shopping temptation or spending money without thinking hundred over times. Basically, I can't afford. I don't earn as much as I used to, I also rather keep my money for my travel ventures (Melaka Jonker Walk & Pyeonchang Korea) instead of spending for the sake of it. But since this is my time in AEON Shah Alam mall, my niece who comes over quite often insisted on showing me around. Why not? No harm done because should I really need to shop next time, I may consider this mall.

The Coffee & Bar - (Bandar Sunway, Petaling Jaya)


Every now and then, we women should ditch aside our men for a day out. But please, don't get me wrong. I am in no way encouraging you, not instigating you to get into a heated argument with your man. I know how women are. They are so good at pointing fingers at another in case they can't cover their own back for dirty tricks. I definitely, the last thing I want is your man shaming me on social media. Its basically your choice, what I am saying is that we should consider a day out without our men breathing behind our neck. Whether the man is your spouse, your boyfriend, your toy boy, your sugar daddy or your part time lover, I still think that we deserve our "leave me alone" day. Our day can then literally be anything. Anything. Spa, facial or window shopping, on your own or with just one close person. I'm unsure if I should encourage you to out with another woman's man, for me, outing with a group of women, not even 3 women at one go, does not work. Let me not even mention what it is like being among the ladies for just a few hours when its my other half-half''s so called family bonding time. Maybe its just me, I can't get along with my own kind, or maybe its my age wisdom. The older I get, the more I prefer my own company. Lesser Indian dramas, bye-bye to women who ride on me.

Melaka - Jonker Walk (Part 2)


Malaysians I think are a peculiar lot. Don't get me wrong. Please don't get all worked and throw slippers at me. I know how emotional we Malaysians can get even on the most tiniest things. I am in no way generalising, neither am I pointing fingers at anyone in particular. Then again, if the cap fits, please wear it instead of being in denial. Consequentially, I must speak about the rich and famous or Malaysians who like to be known as rich, I shouldn't even care less about Malaysians who have migrated. Like they say, don't bite the hand that fed you, well and good for those who have migrated. I can understand. The grass always look greener on the other side or because Malaysia is a chicken feet. Hopefully, I sincerely hope I won't see my friends returning back to Malaysia as asylum seekers, sooner or later. Especially those who not only can't stop bragging about how life is far better in US or Australia, apart from that, keep condemning and criticizing Malaysia, so sad for these small minded people who fail to accept the fact that life sucks throughout the world.

Pyeonchang - (Mount Sorak/Jeongdongjin/Daegwallyeong) - Korea Day 5


Tour guides can make or break your holiday. They sure can. They can either make your travel-gram memorable or ruin it all. But, for those of you who opt for traveling by your own back bone, you don’t have to give a damn on towering guides. Really, you don’t have to. Women like me on the other hand, I know I have a choice, whether I like it all in a tour or not, that’s beside the point. I still prefer tour travelling. Call me an orthodox traveler if you want, I am least bothered, a safe bet for me is an all planned and all paid for tour. Basically, everything is cared for, and mind you, I am a solo tour traveler. The only thing, that too not a major thing, is "sleeping alone" (ahem!). Actually, come to think of it, I can sleep with someone else, let's name it same-sex or different sex "tour travel", that by the way is not why I travel alone. My fear of sleeping alone is mainly because I am not a spooky friendly person, albeit I am on my own for days when my other half-half travels for work.

La Mer The Eye Balm Intense


Undeniably, eyes are the windows of the soul. Of course. I absolutely agree. A phrase/proverb which I believe has already been repeated donkey times, over and over by beauty bloggers. Have you, on the other hand, in your slightest moment, given a thought on the revelation of your eyes to your soul in this current era of borderless social media? Have you? You should. Look around and you will know what I mean. Kids as young as three year old are already wearing glasses, thanks to parents who willingly occupy their hyper, fidgety and precious darlings with, either a smart phone, Ipad or tablet. I better not speak so soon. I am no better. Easier I suppose speaking about others, not realising we can't scrub the dirt on our own back. But one thing is certain. All of us work by staring at laptop daily. Whether we belong to an organisation or we work for ourselves. Tech era is definitely gonna stay forever, we also just refuse to leave social media alone. Yes, count me in. I have yet to be crowned as a social media queen because many have already snatched the crown. Social media is actually a killer for me, but because of blogging, I laptop, I handphone and I social media, though, I have cut down on being a superwoman on every other social media. Otherwise, I will die faster. I will.

Chayo Restaurant & Cafe - SS6, Kelana Jaya (Selangor)


Getting my other half-half out of the house can utterly rip my blood pressure. Husbands? Tell me about it. Work, sleep, football, entertaining clients, and back to the same square. Work primarily. I am not saying its wrong. I know money adds the biggest value to marriage, of course we women are hailing more than a comfortable life. We want to be seen in Mercedes or BMW, we also want big beautiful house(s) and at least one brilliant hyper cannot keep quiet for a minute kid so that we can impress our so called social media "friends". But, for practical women like me, if work is all on the man's mind, how about our quality love marriage? You tell me please. I am really lost. Can anyone help me out here or you women in the same boat? What shall we do ladies? Shall we propaganda such behind close door unspoken marriage reality?

Melaka - Portuguese Settlement (Restaurant De Costa's 8)


Lemme speak a tiny bit on Portuguese Settlement. Those I think I am familiar with instead of taking the easy way out by cutting and pasting, obviously in academic terms we call it “plagiarism”. Plagiarism indeed is a rampant madness attitude even among the self-proclaimed top-notch bloggers, all in the name of fanning for popularity, fame, likes and followers. The best part of it all is that people actually fall for copied crab stuffs instead of believing those who share their sincere, genuine and honest real-time experiences. Wish I can shame those copycats who evidently have not the mastered the art of copying, sadly though. Sad isn't? I should mill them through "Plagiarism" software.

Dr.WU Instant Whitening Capsule Mask With Vitamin C


Doctor who? Dr.WU. Who again please? Dr.WU is apparently Taiwan's No 1 clinical skincare brand, derived from the founder's name. No.1 brand? Wow! Speak about climbing the beauty elevator for conquering the beauty market share and then positioning our brand as the best among the rest, consequently, claiming the number one status? Of course, who ever said branding is not important. It is everything, mind you. Brand building in the beauty world ultimately is the key for brand recognition, as in other industries as well, including for us bloggers for spotting the top spot in the blogging scenario.

Ming Kee Bak Kut Teh - PJ Old Town


This day will go down as another unforgettable day in my life. It will forever be one of the days I can’t forget for the rest of my life. As it is, I am still coming to terms with dad slipping off within minutes to heaven almost two years ago (more at Nasi Minyak), on this day, when I received a call from my bestie’s family, I felt as though my worst fear is gonna come true. Remember, my 30 over years different race and religion friendship I already told you at Kepong Heng Bak Kut Teh & Restoran Meng Kee Klang Road? Tragic! Utterly shattering day. My heart pumped so fast upon hearing that my bestie had earlier collapsed at the medical center and is now in critical care unit. Still, instead of breaking down and crying, honestly everyone, I put up a brave front. I told her sista I will there soonest possible.

Nami Island & Petite France - Korea (Day 4)


Bye bye Jeju Island, here we come Nami Island. Breakfast, bags packed, off to the airport and by the time we arrived in Seoul, timing was just right for lunch. Hunger of course had already called. I definitely need my lunch meal because I am not the piggy-pig kind of buffet breakfast person. In fact, I think I have told you before, I don’t take breakfast. But when I travel, I do keep my tummy warm by filling in some food to fuel energy for all the walking during sightseeing. On this day, after just tadbit of breakfast at about 8.00am, I naturally yearned for a fulfilling meal once we arrived in this tiny Korean restaurant. But the sight of Korean steamboat again, again?, almost killed me on the spot even before tucking in. Oh-god! Is there no other food in Korea except steamboat and hot-pot? Unbelievable. Either, as I have already said, its steamboat or hotplate, or none other, or is it like this when you travel in a tour? I don’t know. Rather puzzling actually. Did we dare ask the pain in the butt tour guide? Nope.

Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Flawless Face Wash


If you think Korea, Japan, Taiwan or even US are the super power think-tanker beauty leaders, how about then you make it a point in finding out what has and is brewing in India’s skin care market? (La Mer UV Fluid, Missha Moisturiser & Annie's Brightening Mask). Aplenty tremendous vast advancement mind you. I particularly admire how India has set itself apart from crowding the beauty market segment. Not to say they don't have their fair share of sexual harassment, bullying and crime scandals as in Malaysia, I am specifically referring to their handcrafted and organic skin care products. Made and marketed by not only the big players, but also small cottage beauty industries. Name the products, they have it. Scrubs, masks, shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers and the list goes on. Amazing right? I believe so.

Melaka - Jonker Walk (Part 1)


Not many friends can be your great, maybe not even accommodating travel companions. Why go so far, sometimes, even our love broadest band width can also be tested when we travel together. I personally know of courting couples who broke up after their first love travel because something snapped somewhere. Anyway, nothing is shocking anymore. Love is fragile, relationship is equally a turmoil and travelling with family members is the other to tolerating all sorts of bizarre characters, speak about money which is never sunny, if not for all, but for some who prefer to travel at our expense. Tell me all about it please? That’s why, remember I told you why I am standing tall with my principle of travelling alone (Travelling Solo When You Are Married).

Naughty Nuri's (Subang SS15 Courtyard)


Now, how should I start this review on Naughty Nuri’s? Anyone like to help me out? Anyone out there have anything to say please? Okay, maybe, I should start by mentioning that most of you would have had a delightful dining experience in Naughty Nuri’s. Albeit assumingly, you may have stood in the queue before being ushered into their modern-traditional, slightly dim and adorn with sarong and bamboo fittings Indonesian ambiance. Queuing most probably can be avoided if you have made prior reservation. We on the other hand took it for granted. Considering that its the long Hari Raya holiday weekend, we thought we should be able to secure a table. How wrong we were. No, definitely was not the case. Thankfully, queue moved quite fast, additionally, we didn’t mind seating at the bar area. Of course, it would have been nice if we had the option for dining at the bamboo swing enclosed table.

NY Steak Shack - Sunway Pyramid, Petaling Jaya


New York! New York! Yes. New York is definitely on my bucket or pail travel list. Anytime, I’m like anytime gamed for flagging a long dotted line, stretching all the way from Malaysia to New York. Ultimately, New York I know will be my picture Instagram perfect. Of course. Easier said than done I suppose, unless and until I have sashed enough money in my bank account, New York can only be on my mind. That’s okay. No big deal. After all, life isn’t about having it all at one go at the snap of our fingers. Money obviously of course is the game plan for our travel gram, till then, we shall not complain, we shall save and for the time being, we can potentially check out eateries that showcases New York food on our Malaysian ground. Then again, to tell you the truth, I am not really into those fancy-willy huge portion Western food. Food for me is the typical spicy, tangy and salty Malaysian call. Bang! For instantly waking up my food senses (Kayra Kerala Cuisine & Restaurant Meng Kee Old Klang Road).

La Mer Blanc De La Mer - The SPF 50 UV Protective Fluid PA+++ 50ml /1.7oz


La Mer! The world renowned sensational brand which definitely will drill a huge hole in the pockets of the average/below average Malaysians like me. Yes, undeniably it will. Honestly beauties, I didn't buy this La Mer Blanc De La Mer SPF 50 UV Protective Fluid. I thought I might as well make myself very clear before I am crowned as the envy queen by my social media silent sly enemies or so called sincere friends. By making myself clear way ahead, I hope leeches will stop crawling on my nerves by sending secret messages to indirectly force me to buy their products. Look, I have nothing against friends who want to make it big in direct selling or multi level marketing, these no names mentioned friends by right should lift their heavy butts to work their way till the tip of at least  Mount Kinabalu. Right?

Jeju Island (Part 2) - Korea (Day 3)


No two ways about it. Unquestionably, travelling in a tour requires discipline. Yes please. There is no such a thing as you wish in a clearly listed tour. Obviously, you can’t follow your own travelling heart by wondering as you please. Instead, it is about abiding to the unspoken travelling rules. Otherwise, you will be billed as a nuisance by the tour guide and tour buddies. So sorry everyone, if you can’t pay attention to the tour guide on safety rules and time limit, you better ditch the idea of tour travelling (Sapporo/Hokkaido). I know better. I can strongly vouch because experiences speaks louder than words. In Jeju Island, it had to be the same agenda in the morning. Waking up by 7.00am, sometimes even earlier, showering of course is your choice, followed by breakfast and most to most by 9pm, sometimes you have to pack if we are not returning to the same hotel. Also, do try to empty your bowels instead of restlessly interrupting while on the way for sightseeing (Istanbul Turkey, Pretoria South Africa & Colombo Sri Lanka).

Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul - Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall


Anything with Penang sells. Not as in Penang itself, I can’t comment if people in other states of Malaysia will speak highly about Penang food, but we at the heart of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor die-die get carried with eateries that features Penang food. Including even those from the anywhere and everywhere hawker stalls. I of course have Penang tripped. Sightseeing primarily is my call, sightseeing must also be tagged alongside food porn, food orgasm, food splendor and food glory. Basically, known as "dine with nava-k" in nava-k’s laywoman’s terms. Otherwise, such a shame for branding myself as a foodie delight, food enthusiast or adventurous foodie. Oh-yes, Penang undeniably is a food haven. But proclaiming that it is an all-rounder winner potentially can in return bring shame to my food senses (Penang Thaipusam to Alor Setar Kedah). Regardless, I must generously award high distinction and credit to let’s say 70% of Penang food. Why not? Why should we deprive praising those who have not compromised on the incredibly memory lane food terrains of their ancestors authentic traditional dishes?

Alor Setar - Kedah (Nava-K's One Day Postcard)


Being married to someone who is married to his or her job is not all that rosy and sunshiny. I know. Ask me and I'll willingly spill all of it. Its sincerely really a tough call for me. Irregular working hours, sometimes work calls for during the weekends and public holidays, and at the end of the day, no matter how late it is, I have to listen to his ups and downs. More importantly, I have to take care of myself, especially when he is away (Sungkai Perak & Pork Dickson). Then again, this workaholism does throw in some happy perks every once a while and if your life-time soulmate’s job involves inbound/outbound travelling, you might as well try your luck by piggy backing him, her and it (Chitose & Hokkaido).

Sephora Pearl Perfecting & Brightening Sleeping Mask


Everything is competitive these days. Career is competitive, business is competitive, love is competitive, husband is competitive, wife is competitive and kids’ multilevel talent marketed by parents utmostly is a sharp edge. You name it, it’s a ball juggling competitive world we are in. We might as well include tv competition shows and I’m sure you will agree that social media obviously is the disastrous road for within our friends back stabbers? The other I must mention is the competitive virtual beauty blogging world. Real beauties, fake beauties, sincere beauties, disguised beauties and beauty by beauty apps. Bingo! So, tell me please. What else is new? Nothing much I actually presumed until I found out at Sephora (Sephora Rouge Lip Tint) that sleeping mask is the waking-up call for “my fair lady” competitive beauty loop amongst  the Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Taiwanese women. Hip-Hip-Hooray!

Cinnamon's - Gamuda Walk (Kota Kemuning) Shah Alam


Honestly foodies,
I still can’t get over and done with the “Bamboo Beriyani” I devoured into at Cinnamon’s Kota Kemuning recently. Honest to goodness, it’s been ages I think I’ve had such a mouthwatering delicious Beriyani. Not the same. Not the same commercial Beriyani from anywhere and everywhere, nope, this biriyani by far is simply the best. Wow-Pow! Hang-on, hang-on, hang-in there for the time being. More to Bamboo Beriyani will be unveiled later, right now, walk with me into Cinnamon’s, located on the first floor of Gamuda Walk, because I’ve got other things I must tell you as well.

Penang - Thaipusam (Nava-K's Spiritual And Religious Journey)


Some friends I believe are really peculiar. Perhaps I should also label them as weirdos. Wanna know why? No, no, I am in no way referring to the fake social media friends, but my most to most 5 to 10 closest friends whom I thought knew me at the back of their hands. How wrong. When I told a few of them that I will be fulfilling my spiritual and religious vows at Waterfall Temple/Balathandayuthapani Temple for Thaipusam, they burst out in laughter. Why? Seriously, I didn't know what were they tickled about? Do I look like a misfit? Not as far as I know. Despite asking over and over again, none actually could spill a concrete reason. I of course was agitated. Then again, it can't be my fault if friends judge me wrongly. Maybe because I am modern and outgoing, I can’t be religious, is it? Whatever, I've come to a point  I care too hoots how people perceive me. My life, my choices, my happiness and my relationship with god.

Sephora Rouge Lip Tint (Fushia 05 & Mulberry 10)


(Sephora Rouge Lip Tint Mulberry 10)

Yes or no? Beauty is perfection? Yes or no? Beauty box is all in one. Silky smooth hair, hour glass shape, porcelain complexion and designer brands? Any opinion anyone? Please, please, I don’t want to hear about the disillusioned social media bountifulness. Can we get real and speak about our down to earth 50’s beauty? How about I now answer on behalf of those who are blurred by “what you see on social media is absolutely what you get in real life”. Sure, by all means, go ahead and fall high over heels with beauty videos that promotes multi-color-multi-product contouring, layering, coloring, shading, styling and what not. Basically, it is your choice, I won’t discourage you either. Always your choice. Right?

Jeju Island (Part 1) - Korea (Day 2)


First half day of sightseeing in Seoul (Korea Day I - Incheon to Seoul), we returned to Incheon airport for our domestic flight to Jeju Island. Spilling over await in the long queue among the hundreds during this supposedly off peak season in Korea, who do you expect to see travelling throughout the year, except mostly “Made In China” Chinese. Malaysians too I think are seriously taking their globetrotting lifestyle "Up In The Air", in fact, even those born with a dented wooden spoon in their mouth are joining forces in trip-travelling all the time.

Bedouin Arabian Cuisine - Taman Tun Dr Ismail (Kuala Lumpur)


Nava-K’s day out in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. Indeed, a well money-well spent day for hard knocking-rocking the reality of wealth success. First stop was lunch at Kayra Kerala Cusine, next coffee and vadai at Aunty Manju’s and then few hours of gossiping pleasure at the friend’s house. I think we spoke about multiple topics simultaneously, ranging from inbound/outbound travelling (Icheon To Korea & Port Dickson) to politics, of course the central topic had to be social media. Social Media! Yes. Who is adjusting beauty with beauty apps (Deesse's Elujuda Hair Oil), comparing our looks to the supposedly young dollings, who has swap bedtime partners with who and bitching frustratingly on why we should like our people's post because ours is not liked in return. Well, you can't blame us. Everyone including the young as five year old or even animals have already been brainwashed uprooted towards embracing social media forces. "Like me, follow me, I want to be world sensational by garnering huge followers and likes", and some infant "You-Tubers" are such a pain in the butt for constantly sending messages to follow them. Havoc! Siva-Siva. Nava-Nava. Speak about social media. Can’t get enough right? I know.

Deesse's Elujuda (MO) Mellow Oil For Natural Color Design Hair Treatment - 4.1 oz


First thing first please. Did any of you beautiful followers of “beauty with nava-k” read my previous review on Revlon Uniq One All In One Hair Treatment? Admit it if you didn't, that's okay with me. After all, honestly is no longer the best policy in this corrupted beauty world we knowingly or unknowingly are vacuum sucked by the so called "famed" beauty gurus and bloggers. If not all, some, sadly are indirectly beauty coating the sponsored products they receive, or, maybe, I'm just saying, perhaps we ourselves love the disillusioned beauty apps world. I however personally believe that lying in our 50’s is such a brutal beauty shame, our beauty philosophy on the other hand must be ageing gracefully by realistically maintaining our complexion (L'Occitane UV Shield SPF50 & Revlon Ultra Volume Mascara) and shape (How To Stay In Shape) instead of competing against the young social media dolls (Garnier Night Restore Cream).

Korea Day 1 - Incheon to Seoul


Another solo trip of mine in an arranged tour (Istanbul Turkey & Dubai) alongside 14 people I had no clue whosoever they are, Korea was the said destination. Now, to all the adventurous wise cracks who are right now reading this "Korea Here I Come" venture of mine, will you please stop wondering why I didn't backpack or travel on my own. Of course I sincerely appreciate your advise, but let me tell you that I have already before hand done my homework. What I found out is that the ordinary Koreans on the streets really can't speak English, so obviously, I am going to have one hack of a time communication with them should the need arise. Definitely it is bound to happen, holding on to a map and trying to pick up Korean language there and then may show the way, especially on "Amazing Race", but in reality, many travel bloggers don't actually tell you what can go wrong due to language barrier. Additionally, compared to 8 years ago when I had bags of energy, my overall well-being is not the same anymore (Penang - The Pearl Of The Orient).
