Freeman Bare Foot Repairing Cracked Heel Treatment


My feet? I told you before right? Yes I did (Watsons FootEase Cracked Heel Cream). My feet? They are a disaster. Major. Disaster. On-going disaster. The disastrous cracks and dry skin on my feet (DU'IT Dry Foot & Heel Roll-A-Balm)? Damn! They won't leave me alone. No. They won't. Oh well! I guess? Never mind. I've accepted them as part of my aging process. Moreover, for someone like me who can't avoid the wear and tear of the feet due to housework, also, me a fidgety person who can't sit still? Like I have worms up my ass? Aha. Then again? Even for those who don't pay attention to their feet, or conveniently fail to gasp the fact that, feet can get run down or worn out, due to dryness and pressure? Of course. The same is applicable (Dr CHECK Cracked Heel Cream). Apart from the same feet or foot theory as well, for those who suffer or struggle with feet dryness and cracks due to "Health Is Not Wealth", and for those of you who have menopause, you must be included in my "Dry Skin" Club.

New Delhi - North India (Winter Time)


Delhi. Old Delhi or New India? New. New Delhi. Two days in New Delhi, the morning after Agra (Agra & Jaipur Rajasthan). Delhi at our helms by 1.30pm, after, almost, 5 hours of road tripping. Delhi. The capital city of India, and Delhi, which was the landing right of ours as well. As in? Meaning? In other words? Delhi is where we landed on the first day, for kick starting this, North India tour of ours (Varanasi), and Delhi, yes, will be our closure too. Closure? Closure as in? Up, up in the air. Delhi sky high up. When night has fallen in Delhi. We will be flying sky high for grounding back, on the ground of our mother land or father land, Malaysia. Delhi. The city to messy massive traffic. What else, by the way, is new in other parts of India as well? Almost the same story (Chennai South India). Let alone, the honking that can literally rip your ears apart, plus, Oh-God-Oh-No. The sheer number of crowded congested human traffic in Delhi? Pretty much? Mmmm!! Welcome to the hustle and bustle, craziness of Delhi. The day in day out, life and style of Delhi.

On our itinerary? In the moment in time, upon stepping foot in Delhi? Of course. Food start up. Our first ever meal in Delhi. Basically, lunch in Delhi and lunch in Restaurant "Flavour Of Southvala" (Karol Bagh). By the travelling guide line of this tour, lunch to each our own concept, since meals are not covered. Me? Me. The, eating a bird person. Three of us to sharing. Paper Tosai and Non-Veg Thali Set. Wah! Good Food. Nice Food. Delicious food. Yummzii Food. Of course, how can not yours truly, she love, love, love and love India Made Bru Coffee.




Over. Lunch concluded. Thereafter? To Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi. Goodness me! In the Indian snaking (opphs!!) queue. Long queue mind you, and winter on this particular day? Bang! Winter wild like me, winter wild coldness practically banging all around for quivering my bones. Huhhhhhh! Cold. Anyway, from the queue to the security check. Thorough checking for ensuring that none is carrying handphone or camera, and then, into Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi.

Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi
Opened 6th November 2005
Constructed by Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS)

Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi. Awww!! Amazing! The luxurious stunning master class piece. Damn nice. Yea. I am ranking Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi  as one of the prides of New Delhi and one which, I didn't honestly, know nuts or bolts about. Worth it. So worthy Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi. In fact, some of those in this tour commented that, Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi is as equal or even better status standing in comparison to Taj Mahal. Really? Should I agree? No. Not at all. Both Taj Mahal and Swaminarayan Akshardham New Delhi are a class to their own uniqueness. I won’t compare. I don’t think you should look at both of these and make a comparison. Just set them apart as they are please.  The end. 

End of sightseeing. In fact. The one and only, Day 1 New Delhi sightseeing. What about for the rest of the day? Late evening till whatever time you want to cap time? Shopping. Shopping in Karol Bagh. Shop, please go ahead, shop till you drop if you want in Karol Bagh. Karol Bagh! A major hype amongst tourist shopping district. Especially, our Malaysian Indians? Shopping on the whole in whichever part of India.  What about me? Did I shop or least to least, did my jaw drop? Oh please. Neh. To tell you the truth, Karol Bagh wasn’t a big deal or biggest deal for me. As it is, shopping is not at all the reason why I travel. Shopping by the way, has already long been abolished from my list. Furthermore, for someone like me who have been in and out of such shopping districts in other parts of the world? Like what? Like nothing I will die for. Having said that, in all fairness, I did my honor to seeing and exploring Karol Bagh. I mean, if you have come this far to New Delhi and you wouldn’t even want to leave your foot prints in Karol Bagh? What a shame. 


Almost an hour, in and out of a couple of boutiques, street shops and street stalls, enough. Enough of Karol Bagh. More than enough of aimlessly walking up and down. The logical choice then? To the hotel, located within a 15 minutes walking distance, But, ahhhhhhh! How frustrating. The two of us lost it. We got lost in the midst to the direction. Such a confusing matter it turned out to be. Imagine? You are in a carnival like busy street, surrounded and swarmed by hell of a lot of, mostly locals and making the matter worst, the chaotic traffic. Not to forget, the stares. Stares from of course the Delhi men, who were mind you, come to think of it, not bad looking. Yet, when they dare stare right into your eyes non-stop? Phew! Oh boy! Having no other choice, we braved ourselves in asking for the direction and. Thank god. Thank all the gods in Delhi. We made it one piece. Into the hotel and straight up to my room. Done! The end. Day 1 in Delhi.

Safi Balqis Oxywhite Masker Pencerah/Safi Balqis OxyWhite Whitening Mask


Hi gorgeous people. I told you? Remember? If you can recall? The beauty truth to my truth about our Malaysian skin care products? Specifically? Aha. Our Halal products (Safi Rania Gold, Gold Essence)? You know what is great about these products? They are, trust me, believe me, beauty caring, skin caring worthy. Alright. Enough said since I have already said enough. Let's not waste, no time, no more, because since I am currently pursuing further education, time is precious for me as well. Henceforth, come, let me right now, introduce another halal skin care product to you. Safi Balqis Oxywhite Masker Pencerah/Safi Balqis Brightening Mask (Safi Balqis 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner). Picked up from Watsons, priced at RM5.00. Really affordable, don't you think so? Unless, otherwise, without a doubt, there are cheaper sheet masks as well these days. For me personally, RM5.00 is fine. Even those priced much higher, these are also, within, the budget I have allocated for my skin care (Activa Double Action Mask & ID.AZ Golden Fit Mask).

Taj Mahal Agra - (North India)


And the journey. The journey of five and a half hours (More or less. Approximately). The journey from Jaipur (Jaipur The Love City & Jaipur Part 1) to Agra. The journey to, keeping my ass, staying put in my seat in the coach. Ahhhh! Ass. Ass literally. Fried up, down, under, above and inside. You know. This kind of long journeys. Especially for yours truly? Someone who can't keep her ass quiet. Hahaha!! She. Nava K. The hyper, fidgety, colors of "My Fifty Five Life" bright colors lively character, and tell me about my mouth. Mouth of mine? My big fat mouth which must battle wrestle out of me. The chatter box mouth of mine. Mmmmm!!!! Thank god. I had company. Company to a small number of liberal, happy go, lucky come ladies and guys in this tour (Varanasi Part 3). The bubbly and cheerful characters like me. We had fun. We giggling over silly jokes and of course, Nava K? The crowned glory to "Laughter Therapy Guru".

GARNIER White Speed Yoghurt Sleeping Mask


Sleeping mask. A must? Is sleeping mask a must as your sleeping beauty, beauty mask? Should you, can you, must you include sleeping mask as part and parcel of your beauty regime and routine? Well. In all fairness. Its all about you. If you want to, if you strongly feel that a sleeping mask will do some beauty goodness or, a whole lot of "beauty bag" goodies, as in, in maintaining, repairing or enhancing your skin, by all means. After all, your skin, you should know better? Yet. the point to note before you purchase a beauty mask? Trust me, it won't hurt you anywhere, even your "Down There" (ahem), if you do your fair share of your homework on and about the various types of sleeping masks. Especially in wanting to know which mask will be suited or fitted for your skin type, or for your beauty needy skin.

Jaipur, Rajasthan - The Love City (North India)


Jaipur! So far, so absolutely amazing, fascinating and an absolute wonder world. To tell you the truth, Jaipur, without a doubt, had already conquered and captured my travelling, shining like diamond love essence. Even from the moment I was passing by and before getting down from the coach. Jaipur! Known as the "Pink City" obviously, for me personally, on the contrary, Jaipur is the "Love City". Why love are you asking me? Oh-Well. I somehow seemingly felt the love connection for Jaipur. Yea! Love! Love. Always the number one priority for literally everything in my life, and in whatever I do, and in Jaipur (Jaipur Part 1), my love for Jaipur, was pouring, oozing and dripping non-stop. Due to the underpinning, openly shown or hidden love at the sightseeing spots. In fact, even the North Indians (South India, Chennai) I bumped into and spoke to. By virtue of, staying at the hotels, shopping, whether at the shopping malls or streets, of course sightseeing places must be included as well, plus the tour guides (Varanasi North India). The tour guides who were directly or indirect correlated to love. Love as in the tour service they provided by not being selfish with their knowledge, bundled alongside bundles of smiles and laughter. All of these, all, lock, stock and barrel, trust me, whispered the language of love or akin the loud love bells ringing into my ears and on every note, in and out of my inner and outer senses.

L'Oreal Gentle Cleansing Milk (200ml)


Listen up please. Will you please? Will you please also believe me? I know you have been, but now, its gonna be, perhaps another reminder, like I have told you before. Well. Point blank said. If you can't be bothered in cleansing your face, at least, least to least once a day, better of course will be before or while at showering at the end of the day, you shouldn't care two hoots about wanting to look presentable and please, you should also put a full stop, yea, fullest stop, to complaining about your lifeless and dull skin. Furthermore, for god's sake or even Nava K's sake, don't even bother in looking for the smallest amount of sympathy by saying, you can't afford a cleanser. I have. Mind you. I have. Have I not introduced a string of cleansers to you (Garden of Eden Cleansing Milk)? Ranging from? Right (Clinique Liquid Facial Soap & Clinique Cleansing Balm). The high end to those really affordable ones, and those really affordable ones, you can pick up at any, most, hypermarkets? Without a doubt, I know I have (Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk).

Kari Kambing Malaysia (Malaysian Mutton Curry)


Hi beautiful lovelies, recipe time, recipe moment right now. The recipe to? Yea. Kari Kambing Malaysia, aka, Malaysian Mutton Curry. Why, if you are asking me, why to a Malaysian version mutton curry? Oh-Well-Well-Well! I could have named this recipe as, Nava Sanam's or Nava Sutra's Kari Kambing or Mutton Curry. Then again. Because of my undivided love for my country, though "Malaysia My" can be crappy and complicated life style as well, aha, as in other countries as well, I decided to honor my born and bred and in no way, I will migrate to another country, my Malaysia.

Jaipur, Rajasthan (North India) - Part 1


Heart sank. Yesss! Mine. Mine, mine, mine. My, my one and only fragile heart. My heart gradually sinking, as if, to the lowest and deepest, plunging into Ganges River. Or maybe. Sinking like, the fast or slow sinking of the "Titanic". Trust me. Wasn't easy. When I have to say, when I to bid bye-bye to Varanasi (Varanasi Part 3). I felt, as though,I'm leaving behind a part of me in Varanasi. Varanasi which touched my Hindu Indian sentiment so profoundly until, I wanted more of Varanasi (Varanasi Part 2). One more day, one more night and what more, furthermore of Varanasi (Varanasi Part 1). Then again. The reality was otherwise. Because? Pretty much. We have already covered, if I am not mistaken, the lock, stock and barrel of Varanasi and coming with it, the quintessential Varanasi sightseeing spots.

Indian Vegetarian Brinjal (Vegetarian Kathirikai)


The Indian Hindu Nava K? Yes. Of course. The vegetarian Nava K? No. Of course not. Except, the vegetarian Nava K on Fridays (Vegetarian Tofu Sambal & Vegetarian Potato Sambal). Why on Fridays? Well. For reasons or reasoning of my Hindu religionism, I don't think I want to share with any of you. The rest of the days in a week? Free and easy. The free and easy Nava K, the human omnivore and not carnival or animal omnivore. Aha! Basically, anything goes for me, but not beef, neither creepy crawlies, nor am I a big meat eater. For me, I adore basic food and the basic has to be eggs, and I simply love, adore salted food like anchovies/ikan bilis, salted fish and salted egg. My source of meaty protein every now and then, on the other hand? Chicken and pork. What about mutton? Sure. Every, maybe, once a month.

Activa Double Action Mask


I don't know about you. Really. I don't. Know, know and know. Neither? Should I, must I, can I, or would I like to assume. Assumption? You know what is assumption? Well! Assumption by the way is the major mother of "F-Up". What is "F"? Go figure while I move on to tell you that, I, yes, me alright, I care. I care about my skin. I also double care or triple care how people perceive me by looking at my skin. Of course. So true. Because? The beauty reality is that? Whether you like it or not? Whether you accept it or not? Whether you give too hoots or not? People do judge us by our appearance. Either by staring, glimpsing or sneak- peeking at our skin. Vis-a-vis whilst communicating with us, or, of course, when there is a glow glossiness on your skin, people will admire.

Varanasi - North India (Part 3)


Varanasi. Yes. Of course. Precisely. Varanasi. So far. So good. Nothing much, honestly, no much I should complain about. In fact. A promising, fulfilling start I must state. Except maybe. The setback? Hotel Silk City. Mmmm!! Like a dungeon. Furnitures, fittings and the overall set-up? As if you have checked into an ancient old, war-torn hotel. To tell you the truth. I didn't know how to react the moment I stepped in. Sadly. Not at all to my taste infinitely. Then again? When you didn't pay for a  5 star  or even 4 star hotel? Keep quiet. Don't act, or behave like a standard mudguard please. Just make do with it. Yep. I had to remind myself.  Over and over, again and again. On a better note? Bathroom. The blessings to a clean, spic and span bath and toilet area. Thank god. The only bingo. The only bonus seemingly.

Phostreet - IOI Mall (Bandar Puchong Jaya)


Every now and then. In fact. These days? The every now and then has become quite rampant regularity actually. Why? Well. This "My Fifty Five Life" which has and is still kicking me so hard on my butt and brain for indicating that? Instead of, like all these donkey, monkey and cow years, whereby I have been putting my marriage to the forefront, or even my family commitment as my main priority. No more. Enough. I now. Honestly. To tell you the truth. I have snatched my rights to my Indian woman rights to living. Not easy mind you. Then again? I don't care. I am still going to have my rights to my time, me time, by finding time for those things that promisingly pleases my inner and outer senses. In other words. Basically, Me ditching everything aside at home, especially the endless household chores, and also, my man, for my day out.

Varanasi - North India (Part 2)


Varanasi! Alright. From Delhi. Flight up, up and away in the air, before safely landing us in Varanasi. Thereafter. To the hotel and lunch (Varanasi Part 1). Up next? What else? Varanasi sightseeing. Pretty much. I mean, sightseeing must begin right? Of course. Without a doubt. Where to? As per our listing on our Varanasi itinerary card? For kick starting or jump starting our tour? Shri Viswanath Mandir. Aka, Viswanath Temple, New Viswanath Temple or Birla Temple. Temple located in Banaras Hindu University. Dedicated to Lord Shiva. Known for its tallest temple tower in the world and when holiness is a righteous or rigorous matter in Varanasi or even holiness "Holy Art Thou" in other parts in South India (Chennai & Bangalore) as well? Oh-sure. For us Hindus? Prayers and praying. Or apart from seeking god's blessings, we fulfilling our vows we have prior prioritised. What about Nava K? Good question? Remember? I think I have told you before? Me nor not definitely the most holiness Hindu grain. Yet. Sincerely. Honestly. Needles to say. I am a strong and firm believer of god, in god and towards god. Whichever god. Any god. Any god from any religion or ethnicity for the matter. But. Definitely. I will forever remain as the number one Indian Hindu holiness.

Sambal Ikan Asin Kurau (Salted Fish Sambal)


Salted fish in sambal. OMG! Both of them. Salted fish and sambal in one, or in tandem or both akin synchronised together. Believe me. both of them, also, like match made in heaven, or the perfect combination in hell. Pretty much. Needless to say. Sambal Ikan Asin Kurau (Salted Fish Sambal). The power house mouth packing, mouth watering, spicy salty Indonesian (Terong Balado & Ikan Goreng Bumbu Sambal) or Malaysian side dish. I am, yes, me, myself and I alright, mind you, let me admit. Yes, yes, yes, all the yesses in the food world, I am the number one sambal queen (Sambal Goreng Udang Pete & Sambal Tumis Telur). Any kinda sambal (Nyonya Okra Sambal) for your information. Strange though. I can't help but wonder. What went wrong where. By right, I should be hailing, clapping, praising and jumping high up for Indian food (South Indian Fish Curry & Mushroom Sour Curry). Me the born and bred Indian who should, by right, be loving Indian food. Indian food. On the other hand. Aha! The food love of the man I have been married to for donkey years. Logically then, mostly, in fact, all the time, its Indian food on my home ground. For the sake of my marriage love, or maybe best said as marriage responsibility or commitment, or, like I am forced to believe as well, cooking with love for marriage housekeeping. Otherwise? I beg to differ. What the consequences will be. Maybe. Just saying. My marriage may have rocked, shattered and fallen apart.

Varanasi - North India (Part 1)


South India! Oh-My-God. Hallelujah. Finally. After all these years. Me in this earth for 55 years. Finally. I achieved. I achieved a fair share of South India (Chennai). 3 months ago. Having said that, there's still, still, a good number of places in South India, yet for Nava K to be seen and explored. Those places. Aha! Call me the earliest worm for putting my globe trekking in place, those places have already been plotted and projected as part and parcel of my, towards 3/4 of year 2020 travelling itinerary. Furthermore. If all goes well, hopefully, as I badly want to, this coming South India holidaying of mine. Yes please. Back to solo. All by myself in an arranged tour. Solo travelling personally for me? To tell you the truth, I've been missing it. I do, mind you, long for solo travelling every now and then. Why? Well. Obviously. I can do as I like. At my own whims and fancy. My free and easy time. Plus, I tend to embark on soul searching on my future each time I travel alone.

Antipodean Central Market (Kuala Lumpur City Centre)


No. No. Not over yet. Not yet. Yet. Well, can't possibly be. Especially when Central Market has already been gazetted on our list, as the major central mission of the day? Of course. Otherwise. Like what? Coming this far, especially for someone like me who hardly head to the city from where I reside in a really quiet neighbourhood in Shah Alam. You know what? Sometimes I feel, I am actually living in a dead, lifeless, far end zone. Pretty much. Therefore, thus, hence, the mission possible of making it a point in coming this far to Central Market must be accomplished right? Of course. And so. We did. Leisurely walking all throughout Central Market after lunching (Ginger Thai Restaurant), and this, followed by pampering our feet and legs in ManjaKaki Central Market outlet. Duh! Nang! Not the best pampering because I have had better moment to the "greatest goodness" pampering my feet and legs in other reflexology centres before. Nevertheless. To a certain extent, ManjaKaki can be regarded as an appreciated mean and mode to lazy chair sitting back and closing our eyes. Simultaneously, the moment to our time, for relaxing resting our legs for an hour.

ID.AZ Derma Dermastic GOLDEN-FIT Mask


The burn-baby-burn, burning, beauty desire of mine. Duh! So intense, so profound and so overwhelming. For? All for a gold mask. Yes. The beauty desire that actually walked my legs to various drug stores, beauty stores, shopping malls, pharmacies and even checking online. Damn! Nothing nor got me anywhere. In fact. It took me round, round, and round in circles. Akin merry go around the mulberry bush or coconut trees or curry leaf trees. No. Wasn't a fruitful beauty mission at all. Either, gold mask not available or they are too pricey for my budget. Those available online? Neh! Didn't neither captivate nor convince my attention for one particular reason. Price. Pricey price. Especially those quality or those qualified for my beauty desire. In the end. Finally. Having no other choice. I settled for ID.AZ Derma Dermastic GOLDEN-FIT Mask during one of beauty trips to Watsons. Not cheap too. Almost close to RM19.00. In fact. For a fact. The most expensive sheet mask purchase of mine. Then again. When your  beauty desire for a gold mask has skyrocketed till it has pierced the sky, moon or sun? Well. I guess? Yep. Nava K paid for this made in Korea and imported into Malaysia mask. Even so, I couldn't comprehend what's with the pricing. Because I have bought other Korean masks before which definitely were very much cheaper. Within like, between RM5.00 to RM10.00.

Ginger Thai Restaurant - Central Market (Kuala Lumpur)


And. And. And. After all these years. The many years behind me. Me tripping to Central Market. Central Market. Back then. Used to be a wet market. The real deal smelly wet market. Mum and myself, from Brickfields, heading to Central Market during the 70's and early 80's era for our weekly marketing. Of course. Today. Central Market is no longer what it used to be. Today. Central Market is one of the major attractions in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city and it is where you will see the pride and proud stuffs of Malaysia. Our Made In Malaysia handicrafts, plus, what not Malaysian made, also, of course, Malaysians favorite pastime, eating and eateries definitely must be included.

Yu Noodle Cuisine (Jalan Sungai Burung, Bukit Rimau) Shah Alam


Yu Noodle Cuisine. Who? Yu. Yu Noodle. Yu in Sungai Burung. Their 11th outlet. Wowwwww! What an achievement! Yu Noodle and their achievement in the Chinese noodle segment which I believe we should and must applaud. Furthermore, we should also make it a point in finding out what is their critical success food factor by dining in their outlet. Don't you think so? Of course if you are asking me. And so. Pretty much. Obviously. I did it. Alright. How? How and how not. What and what not in Yu Noodle Cuisine for our early lunch? At about, let's say, 11.30am. We walking in, and by then, half of tables already taken up, plus, more customers streaming in once we were seated. All of them. All. Chinese. Except the two of us. The only two dark skin Chinese. Hehehe!

Vegetarian Potato Varuval (Urulaikizhangu Varuval)


Pure, authentic, traditional, exciting or even sex-citing like Nava K, "Vegetarian Potato Varuval, Urulaikizhangu Varuval, Potato Fry or Potato Simplicity.  Vegetarian Potato Varuval. Oh yes please. Such a delight to or in your mouth. Yes. Of course. Believe me. And potatoes, also known as "Aloo" in Hindi (Dum Aloo, Saag Aloo & Jeera Aloo). Aside to vegetarian potato varuval now, potatoes by themselves? Remember, I told you before? The kilos I buy weekly and no matter, how you cook potatoes? Potatoes as in, being the central, core or main highlight in a dish (Indian Potato Balls) or into other dishes (Mutton Meatball Soup, Egg Potato Curry & Spicy Potato Anchovies) and curries (Mutton Chukka & Indian Masala Chicken Curry)? My-My! Nope. Trust me. You can't go wrong with potatoes.

Chilli Sardine


Sardines. Whether canned sardines (Sardine Peratal & Sardine Sambal) or fresh sardines (Mathi Achar & Nyonya Acar Fish). Ahhhh! Sardines. They are, believe me you, they are my biggest savior in my kitchen. Pretty much, or logically, why, the reasoning to me having rolled out a string of sardine recipes this far (Tempoyak Masak Lemak SardineSardine Varuval, Naden Meen Curry & Sardin Masak Lemak Cili Padi). Furthermore. Sardines. Usually. Generally. Especially canned sardines? One of my greatest cooking support, stocked up in my pantry. Albeit, if not every often, whenever, fresh sardines are available, they must and they will somehow return home alongside me from the wet market or hypermarket (Nyonya Hot and Sour Noodles In Fish SoupNasi Ulam/ Malaysian Mixed Herb Rice & Penang Assam Laksa) and to a certain extent, when my "My Fifty Five Life" cooking style is a concern (Sardine Rolls)?

Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush


My Baby Lips. Oh my baby lips. No. No. Not baby anymore. In fact. For a damn fact. My big lips. Absolutely! They have come a long way. A long way alongside "My Fifty Five Life" and they, sad to say, sadly, are not buttery, sugary, "Miss Pinky" no more. Why? Because? Lemme slyly and conveniently blame it on my coffee drinking culture and me, before reaching the "Big 5" my age, I couldn't care less, neither I cared least about my lips. In other words. I didn't shower my lips any tender, loving care. Remember? I told you before? (Metholatum Lip Crayon LipBalm, Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm, Metholatum Lip Ice Sheer Color Shimmer & Sephora Rouge Lip Tint)? As far as I know, I surely did. Unless otherwise. Memory failure of mine. Not intentionally though.

Sri Ganapathi Mess (Seksyen 1, Petaling Jaya)


The mess! I love the mess. The hand messing to a banana leaf meal. Trust me, nothing is more profound when you mess your hands into a, the or your banana, ooops, no, should be, your banana leaf meal. Simply said, banana leaf meal and hands. They jive, they dance and they are in tandem for a delightful wholesome banana leaf meal. Of course, you have a choice to using fork and spoon, but, for an Indian like me. My hands must lead the way, my hands must show the way. Having said that, lets not forget one thing. Mannerism. Whether its a banana leaf meal or not, and I for once, can't stand those who make hell of a noise when eating, plus, have you noticed the ugly eaters? Damn. What an ugly sight. Especially for a banana leaf meal. Can't understand. I just can't understand how food can spill out of the banana leaf and leaving the bones and what not on the table after eating. So gross right? I know.

Safi Rania Gold Beetox Esen Emas Keremajaan (100ml)


Can you, should you, must you put your trust in Safi Rania Gold Beetox Esen Emas Keremajaan? Yes. Why not. You may. After all, this halal essence. Made from finest natural ingredients. Furthermore, free from alcohol and gelatin. I, yes me alright, I am one of those who now prefer halal products. Why are you asking me? Well, as far as I am well-versed, halal products are mainly made from natural ingredients and are pretty much also, if I am not mistaken, free from alcohol, SLS and paraben. Alcohol primarily for me. Right. Of course, without a doubt, certain beauty alcohol, supposedly beauty favorable for our skin, yet, whichever it may be, somewhat, believe me, drying for my skin.

Chennai (South India) - Nava K Explored


Chennai! Welcome to noise, pollution, traffic jam honking and honking non-stop, and the crazy hustle and bustle of daily life. Chennai! Where smile is like a rare commodity as well. Duh! What a life. The cut and dry Chennai culture. Unlike in Malaysia. Though, I must admit, its a mad life in our Malaysian cities too. Yet. Chennai life. Far out, the shocking shocker rocker, which really shook me and believe me you, never ever will I even consider uprooting my Malaysian roots to be planted in Chennai, or anywhere in South India (Madurai/Trichy). Of course, without a doubt, Chennai has made its mark as a popular holidaying and shopping destination amongst Malaysian Indians. Especially the shopping obsession in Chennai. As if, come of it guys, as if we are short of those things you can buy in Chennai and mind you, sometimes, some things are actually cheaper in Malaysia due to our Malaysian traders importing in bulk. In return, we paying a better price. Then again? Why bother putting sense to those who think they know better? I won't anyway. No doubt, maybe for certain items, like sarees, there's millions of choices in Chennai. Otherwise? I rest my case.

Masak Lemak Sayur (Malay Style Vegan Coconut Milk Stew)


Of course. Anything is possible. Including a Malay style vegan coconut stew. Who said you can't?  Who? Who is saying. No. Not me though. In fact, this recipe of mine, evidently? Pretty much, proven. Our Malay or Malaysian vegan or vegetarian coconut milk stew (Sayur Lodeh VegetarianGado Gado Vegetarian & Vegetable Kurma). Coconut Milk (Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa, Vegetarian Nasi Lemak  & Vegetarian Mutton Rendang). Oh yes! Once said as the disaster for our health. But today, the same smart ones are professing that coconut milk or even, because coconut oil has been re-branded as "virgin coconut oil", these are for our healthiness. As if, like, our Malaysian coconut milk (Curry Mee Vegetarian) and coconut oil has never been virgins. Damn! How ingredients theories can be twisted and turned. By the way, for your information, I'm not a virgin or even "like a virgin". Hehehe!! I speak the truth and nothing but the truth. Tadaa!!

Chinese Style Eggplant


Eggplant. Sure. Truly and sincerely. A favourite in my house and eggplant, the edible fruit which, by far, as far as I know, pretty much really affordable as well. Like, you can pick up two or three eggplant, for, let's say, RM3.00 and the other I must say is that, you can convert eggplant to various types of dishes (Eggplant Tikka Masala, Japanese Eggplant Saute, Thai Style Eggplant & Indian Style Fried Eggplant). Of course. I know better because, if you are looking for eggplant recipes, look no further. Whether eggplant by itself, or into curries or gravies (Goan Prawn CurryNadal Meen/Fish CurryVegetable Kurma & Dhal Mutton Curry). Also, either as a vegetarian or non-vegetarian meal tucking in. Eggplant. Yes. They are, mind you, from same purple or green family. Eggplant, or brinjal (Terong Balado Pedas ManisEnnai Kathrikai Kuzambu/Brinjal Curry, Baingan Bharta & Brinjal Stir Fry) or aubergine (Thai Green Fish Curry & Thai Vegetable Curry).
