When the clouds are overcast and later rain or snow decides to camp out for a while, it’s easy to let the weather get you down and make your outfit and make-up feel washed out and dull. The winter blues can come on suddenly and when they do, it’s hard to find a way around them. You can counteract feeling blue during the winter by brightening up your winter look. Not only can you wear some bright hues to feel the warmth of sunshine once more, but you can also apply make-up that will make your face look warmer and lovely during the cold months. Having bright and beautiful make-up will make spring come more quickly.

We spent quite a while in Mazda Glenmarie. By the time we ended our conversation with the sales person, it was past 1.30pm. I couldn't take it any-more because I was almost dying of hunger. Instead of aimlessly driving around, we quickly circled the area and found this Malay restaurant.

Although Deepavali was a quite affair for us, we still had a great time visiting our close relatives who warmly welcomed us with an array of spicy meat, poultry and seafood dishes and lots of sweet stuffs. On top of that, alcohol was also free flow though I held myself from drinking because I can't drink any-more. Of course, my other half was in top form and so were a couple of others.

Vossestrand, we rested for a while before continuing our journey. It was not the best of lunches but it was filling. In fact it was filling enough that I couldn't keep my eyes open and I took a cat nap for about an hour or so. I forced myself to wake up because I didn't want to miss out on the scenic views that I could see from the window of my coach.

When most people are planning for their getaways to somewhere tropical, there are the occasional people who like to get away to a cold climate where skiing and cabins await them. If you do find a cold climate calling your name for your upcoming vacation, you’ll need to know what to pack. From the right shoes to warm clothing, you’ll need the appropriate apparel and accessories to stay warm and have some fun!

Kulfi is the traditional Indian dessert or frozen ice-cream, obviously, well known in India. But it does not imply that you have to travel, all the way to India to taste it, because, even over here, in Malaysia, its available in most Indian restaurants. And, with this recipe of mine, you can also make it at home.

With an extra day off next Wednesday, because of Deepavali, the festival of lights, I presume it’s gonna be a quite city by this weekend. People I know have already packed their bags and they have made public announcement on Facebook, where they are heading to. Don't ask me if they have also told the world on twitter. I won't know. I am not active on it.

Kon-Tiki Museum. For the next day, no sightseeing was scheduled. Its travelling, almost till late evening before reaching Vossestrand. Certainly it was and true enough, hours of sitting in the coach, in between a short break to ease ourselves or to grab a bite and drink. However, we were told that its not going to be a boring journey because, the route via Lake Tyrifjorden and Halingdal Valley is simply breathtaking, one of the most beautiful sceneries of Norway. So, its up to us, either snooze away or admire whatever we can from the moving coach.

Its been ages since I have been out for night life, with friends or even with my other half. I suppose once you reach a certain age, clubbing or partying isn't a priority any more. I can still recall my peak years, almost every weekend, all dolled up and out there having a ball of a time. However, its been a different story for the past couple of years. Now, other things are more fulfilling, like, cooking, gardening, travelling and I have to admit that I quite enjoy writing.

When we came back to the hotel after our day one tour to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Hippodrome, the tour guide remained us to pay up for the cruise trip, scheduled for the next day, in the morning. It's actually optional. In fact, we were already informed about this arrangement when we booked the tour. For those who don't want to go, they are free to do whatever they like for the few hours.

Unlike in the United States, over here in Malaysia, pumpkin is available all year around. You can buy it anyway and everyday, for a couple of dollars. Nonetheless, I can't confirm whether the ones I buy are locally grown or imported. So far, I have not heard about artificial pumpkins. Well, you never know because anything is possible. These days, I am quite sceptical about what is original and what is fake.

Unlike me, my friends knew exactly what to order at Changi airport. While I sat and stared at the Chicken Sandwich from Delifrance, they were happily tucking into the noodle dishes from Sheng Kee.

"Kon-Tiki" sounded familiar to me. Yet, compared to Noble Peace Center, I couldn't recall anything much about it. And that, most likely was why I walked enthusiastically into the museum. It was somewhat dark inside and I struggled to control the amount of light striking the images. Thankfully, I managed, though not all were the best.
