Garden of Eden, Rosa E Pigmentation Serum


Pigmentation. Damn. Dammit profoundly! Remember, I told you before (Bio Essence Golden Ratio Double Serum)? Not once, but repeated over and over again (SAFI RANIA GOLD SPF25 Moisturing Day Cream)? Whatever I have said, I still have not given up though. I won't anyway despite being aware that, my Indian skin and its massive proneness to skin darkening, aka pigmentation. Furthermore, despite me constantly and faithfully caring for my skin? Tell me about it. Age catching up on us, plus the wear and tear of our stressful life and the thinning of ozone layer. Pigmentation definitely being one of my concerns. The product in store today for pigmentation? Pretty much I have already tested and tried, for like, more than a month. Garden of Eden, Rosa E Pigmentation Serum. Picked up from Caring Pharmacy, Gamuda Walk, Kota Kemuning.

Perak Travel - Nava K Discovery (Day 2)


One of the, hard dreaded facts. I have difficulty in swallowing? When I have to digest the fact that holiday is coming to an end (Perak Travel Day 1). What else? Returning to reality. The reality to daily routine. Work, home affairs, traffic jam and the competitive, rushing city lifestyle. Honestly everyone, given a choice, 365 days travelling is my first choice. Then again? The point of thought. I am not single, I am commitment bound and money does not definitely grow on trees. Henceforth, I guess, whether we like it or not, reality has to be the acceptance. Reality by the way, for your information, mind you, sometimes, can badly bite us. Oh- Well?

Gobi Masala (Cauliflower Masala Curry)


 
Gobi or cauliflower (Gobi Manchurian). Pretty much, is cauli a favourite in my house? Honesty, I don't know if I should say a favourite, but potentially, because, cauli is affordable, I tend to pick it up maybe every two or three weeks once. Remember, cooking food budget is something we, I think most of us consider before picking up any particular veggie? I don't know about you, for me personally, cooking within my budget is a priority. After all, like it has been said or let Nava K say, we don't want to burn our money bridge just for the sake of cooking, and gobi/cauliflower (Shahi Gobi, Cauliflower Fritters & Cauliflower Curry), unlike those days, we now pay like RM2.00 to RM3.00 for a piece which can be a perfect fit for a small family like mine.

Furthermore, cauli by itself. Oh yes, various dishes can be the produce. Either cauli on its own (Cauliflower Pakora) or cooked alongside other vegetables for the various types of recipes (Aloo Gobi) and in my kitchen, cauli, mostly for vegetarian dishes (Vegetable Kadhi, Mixed Vegetable Soup & Vegetarian Mulligatawny Soup). Gobi for this recipe of mine today (Navaratan Korma). This latest cauli recipe of mine? A curried version. Gobi Masala (Cauliflower Masala Curry). Soft tender cauli florets in a rich, spicy, thick, aromatic tasty, triggering your hunger curry. A curry which does not need any sort of grinding or pounding, and as long as you don't mind store bought spices and  curry powder, trust me, Gobi Masala is an easy cooking (Kashmiri Vegetable Soup). Except that, whatever we cook in Malaysian kitchen, sweat dripping? Speak about cooking in our Malaysian kitchen which is like forever on a furnace? Our Malaysian terrifying hot weather?

Ikan Goreng Bumbu Sambal


Indonesian sambal or Indonesian food on the whole (Ikan Cabe Ijo) and yours truly? Oh-yes-please. We are sincerely in tandem and can you imagine how it would have been for me during my Jogjakarta trip (Surakarta & Yogyakarta)? My-My! Food wonder. Food joy. Food love utmostly and ultimately. Loved every bit of what I tucked into. The Indonesian chilli power and of course, tempeh is my favourite as well (Buncis Tempe Goreng). Having said that, much of Indonesian food has already been explored even before I headed to Jogya. Remember, Malaysia is also like a mini Indonesia? Anywhere you turn to these days, Indonesian food stalls (Sambal Goreng Udang Pete) and I too,  in my kitchen, yep, every now and then, its Indonesian cooking. Pretty much sort of a close cousin or close relative of our Malay food (Malay Style Udang Sambal & Nyonya Okra Sambal) or even Thai cuisine (Thai Red Prawn Curry). Why? Basically, potentially, due to the inter-role play of spiciness. Chilies and also spices for us Malaysians and Asians (South Indian Fish Curry)? Yes please (Ikan Goreng Asam). Tell me about it. No chillies or spices into our dishes and we feel our food is bare naked. Now, what is Ikan Goreng Bumbu Sambal? Obviously, an Indonesian style fish dish (Ikan Balado). Mind you, the salivating spicy chilli based gravy or sambal (Sambal Tumis Telur) goddess and of course, fish simultaneously (Malaysian Fish Sambal).

Perak Travel - Nava K Discovery


Pretty hectic, but really, really fulfilling. Me returning to my mother land (Ipoh Perak Day 1) and like on roller blades, literally, exploring as many sightseeing spots (Ipoh Perak Day 2). To tell you the truth, I actually loved every moment of it. Despite, being roasted under our Malaysian, most of the time, non-user friendly scorching hot weather. Well, in Malaysia? Either its raining and even so, must I tell you how I can still sweat and when its burn baby sun, I am soaking wet. Where to after visiting Perak Cave Temple? Gunung Lang Recreational Park. For a fact I must crown Gunung Lang Recreational Park as one of the nature pride of Ipoh. At least for someone like who love nature wonder. Mountain surrounding and lake in centrality. Lake is the first thing you will see once you park and walk. What did we do in Gunung Lang Recreational Park. Basically, 10 minutes of our time standing in front of the lakes, simultaneously, glimpsing at the surrounding. That's about it. Of course you can walk further inside through the pathway, but I really can't tell you what and what not. Most probably, nature more or most promisingly?

SILKYGIRL Silky Lips Magic Pink Lip Balm


 
Honestly everyone, I wish. I sincerely wish I can remain as a Silky Girl for the longest time. But obviously, the reality is otherwise. Otherwise in the sense that, trust me, it gets harder and harder once age start crawling, either in front or at the back of us. Me in my fifties, specifically 55 in another few months. Tough. Really. Not at all easy. Unlike young dollings who are blooming into scented, fresh, blossoming flowers. Furthermore, of course, beauty apps for massively conning us and also, heavy loading make-up? For me personally, sure, I do have a choice to heavy duty make-up covering my face and yes, I admit, some light make-up is still relevancy when occasion calls for. Yet, on the other hand, my philosophy to beauty is, pretty much clear and clean complexion. Basically, skin care being my ultimate terms and conditions. Of course, when make up is a concern, face powder is a must. Likewise, I love lip balms for tad bit of color, glossiness and moisture harnessing.

Spicy Crab Kota Kemuning (Revisited)


Spicy Crab! Without a doubt, if I am not mistaken, Spicy Crab has been an unshaken stronghold, corner lot Nyonya, Western and Portuguese  food strength in Kota Kemuning. If I am not mistaken again, been around for the last 9 years or so. In fact, Spicy Crab was one of our first decent food discoveries after we moved to this residential area back then 17 years ago. Of course, needles to say, I am an avid fan of those and their offering of kicking my butt and palates high up spicy, mouth packing Nyonya and Portuguese dishes (Spicy Crab Portuguese  & Local Cuisine). Always and forever. What is different in Spicy Crab now compared to during my last dining experience many moons ago? As far as I noted, as per their printed menu and wall menu? Of course, you can go ahead and pick your choices from the menu. Trust me, more than ample selection of various dishes for your rice meal. Whether for lunch or dinner. We on the other hand settled for their set lunch meals (inclusive of free drink of the day). Price-wise, well, I will leave it up to you. You decide what is expensive or affordable. But rest assured. Set meals are hearty big portions and most probably, if you are a small eater like me, you will  pretty much struggle in finishing up.

Ipoh, Perak - Nava K Discovery (Day 2)


More than looked forward to, most promising, Ipoh Discovery on the first day (Day 1 Ipoh). One of those, one of the best things I suppose when you are on the go, unlike a structured itinerary in a tour, this kinda easy and free to go road trip within your country (Fraser's Hill, Pahang)? No limits or bounds? At your leisure pleasure, and we basically driving and going with the flow. Furthermore, for a fact, we actually discovering places as and when we went along. Of course, Nava K. Honestly everyone, as a hardcore avid traveller, yes I am, lemme profess, me embracing every moment of it. After all, wouldn't you agree, travelling is about capturing, seeing and appreciating places you have never been to before? Whether for the best or not so best (Betong,Thailand)? Instead of selectively picking places base on hearsay or allowing social media sharing in influencing us? Not me. Nope. Not at all. Because not necessarily other people's experiences will be the meaningful opening doors for our own travelling. Don't we all, pretty much travel for our own valid reasoning and our differential reasons most probably not applicable to others? Ditto.

Saag Aloo (Spinach And Potatoes)


Saag (Chloe Palak) Aloo or Aloo (Sukhi Aloo Sabzi) Saag. I actually called this dish as aloo saag in my YouTube video. Then again? Due to the majority calling it saag aloo? Let is be saag aloo. Having said that or whatever or however you like to address Saag Aloo or Aloo Saag, it all boils down to the combination of two central ingredients. Spinach (Spinach Lamb Spaghetti) and potatoes. Furthermore, if I am not mistaken, saag aloo (Tari Wale Aloo, Aloo Gobi & Vegetarian Potato Sambal) is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians. Whichever part of the world they are? Even the Westerners? Oh-my! They sure have fast caught up in the count of cooking such an Indian dish. In fact, Westerners showcasing saag aloo recipes? The number of recipes popping up in case you are more inclined to a Westerner's saag aloo? How about this Saag Aloo cooking style of mine? No, no. Not a totality to a different kinda. Pretty much a familiarity. But, a sincere home style, non-spicy kid friendly version (Tomato Spinach Soup) without compromising on the core quintessential, appreciated delightful tastes. And for which you don't need aplenty ingredients. Indeed, healthiness as well (Spinach Tofu Stir Fry & Spinach Sambar/Dhal Curry). A side dish for rice or for sandwiching between toast.

Bio Essence Golden Ratio Double Serum


Yes. No two ways about it. Our face. Ours alright. A reflection of who we are without a doubt. Even if you have not figured it out or you choose not to agree with me. Our face. First thing first. The first thing people will notice about us. Look, I am not saying we must look drop dead gorgeous, but face skin well-kept is a mirror of our attitude, character and behaviour. Similar to, people judging us based on the tidiness and neatness of our office work area, our house and even our car. Of course, like I always say, to each our own and face beauty can be interpreted in your way or my way, or you can go till the extent of preaching that inner beauty is more important than outer beauty. I, on the other hand, really, am in no way trying to impose my beauty ideology on any of you. Yet, trust me. Effort in maintaining or up-keeping our skin is our attitude of being a caring personality. In fact, it just says that as much as we care for many other things in life, we also care for our skin.

Riz Noms Restaurant (Kota Kemuning), Shah Alam


Keeping the marriage flame glowing like a big ball of fire? Constantly and throughout the years? Quite a crazy challenging thing actually. Especially if you have been married for donkey years like me. Duh! Marriage graph either shooting high up to the stars positively or plunging deeper than the ocean? And when the plunge puts your thinking into a deep non-stop spinning pedestal, we must strengthen our marriage backbone by doing something together. Of course, together with your spouse. Basically, anything for the matter together by breaking free from the daily mundane routine and definitely, trust me, must be out of our house where the firing squad words can be the sharpest. For me personally, when I feel like smashing all the pots and pans in my kitchen out of anger due to Indian food literally day in, day out, I make it a point in doing myself a favour by literally dragging my other half-half for a meal outside.

Stir Fried Oyster Mushrooms


I'm not sure. In fact, I am rather confused about, what is healthy cooking for healthy living. Seriously guys,  I can't comprehend and I really don't know how should I go about explaining healthy cooking and healthy eating (Moringa/Drumstick Leaves Stir Fried). For me personally, I eat anything. Anything in other words, everything in moderation and I do, from time to time, indulge in sinful guilty food pleasures. Of course, not gawking those heavy duty rich food daily, but when the craving kicks in. I am really fine. No guilty feeling due to me not the pigging out kinda and me exercising regularly. Still, trust me, controlling my weight and also, avoiding tiredness, body pain and headache which every now and then can literally pull me down? Not an easy feat for Nava K who is 54, going 55.

Ipoh, Perak - Nava K Discovery (Day 1)


Ipoh. Mum's motherland. Mum “Made In Ipoh” and at 14, yep, I said it loud and clear, at 14 years old, mum married to dad, before making Kuala Lumpur as her next hometown. 3 years later, Nava K  “Made In Sungei Besi”. In one of the government houses across the army camp which don't exist anymore. Of course, obviously, nine months later? Aha! Nava K crawling out of mum's worm in Kuala Lumpur General Hospital and Ipoh, mum’s heritage? Part and parcel of my life as well. Mostly visiting grandparents during school holidays until Ipoh becoming a permanent full-stop. Due to grandparents themselves uprooting their Ipoh roots from Kampung Paloh for joining us in Kuala Lumpur. Whatever it may have been, Ipoh in tandem to mum's and my background? Those teen years of mine specifically in Ipoh? Walking to the river side for idling my time away, staying in the traditional wooden long house and making it a point in regularly slurping into "Ice Bola” and “Bread Ice-Cream”. Those good old memories? Unforgettable and still, mind you, glued on my mind till this day.

Stress - The Biggest Modern Killer


Stress! Yes ladies and gentlemen. Stress precisely. Stress. One of those things, surface to say, seriously, biting and chewing our well-being and if you are asking me, I sincerely believe we must and we should address this matter to stress. Unless otherwise, you prefer sweeping stress under your or someone else's carpet, or you are conveniently pushing stress towards the corners of your house. Hoping stress will take care of itself or will vanish in thin air. Honestly everyone, lemme advise you. It is us and we taking the necessary actions or precautions for keeping stress at arm level. Stress which by far, absolutely certain I am, not only the number one closest enemy of ours, in fact, it is the worst killing killer in this modern, advanced and spinning faster than we can control era we are living in. Of course, I must agree with any one of you who is saying that, all of us have and will continue to somehow or rather, encounter some sort of stress. If not daily, at least every now and then. Furthermore, not to say we had it all smooth sailing, easy-preasy-breezy, stress-free back then 10 years or 20 years ago. But stress these days? Oh god! You tell me please. Knowingly or unknowingly, leading in front of us or slowly or surely crawling behind us. Until it can potentially spiral to a height, even sky high and can, trust me, put our inner happiness in a fix or in a twisted, terrifying spinning mode.

Pachai Sundakkai Kulambu (Fresh Turkey Berry Curry)


Not only fish curry (South Indian Style Fish Curry). In fact, any curry for the matter in my house? A must. Yes. Without a doubt. Not for me though. I am okay in exploring various types of dishes, but for my Indian other half-half I have been faithfully married for the last 17 years? Curry, curry and curry (Mushroom/Kaalan Sour Curry) for every other meal (Spinach Chickpea Curry, Brinjal Curry & Vegetable Kadhi). Basically, no curry, no food hunger or food happiness for him. Perhaps, if I am not mistaken, can I take it as, its the same curry cooking story in your house as well if you are married to a typical Indian man (Navratan Korma & Pavakkai/Bitter Gourd Puli Kuzhambu)? Unless, of course, your husband don't mind cooking his own curries (Okra Curry & Drumstick Sambar/Dhal Curry) and he also lovingly cooking meals for you too. Anyhow, whether you are the chef at home or its your spouse, this pot of Nava K invented Pachai Sundakkai Kulambu/ Fresh Turkey Berry Curry. A power house, spicy, tangy vegetarian authentic Indian style curry. Sincerely worth being made in your kitchen too. Trust me, won't let down your and your loved ones tastebuds.

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (Mild)


First thing first in the morning. Whether I wake up from the right side or wrong side of the bed. Into my bathroom for showering, brushing my teeth and my face needing its attention of course. Attention basically meaning washing and cleansing. However, morning washing or cleansing is rather to the basic. Nothing really time taking or tedious. Just basic cleansing compared to in the evening or at the end of the day (Bobbi Brown Cleansing Milk) due to only night cream and eye cream atop of my face night prior. Moreover, like I have told you before? Skin care. Any for the matter. Won't last forever. Even cleansers or face washes which must be replenished as and when warranted for. This Clinique Liquid Facial Soap. The latest morning face wash of mine for the last 2 months and Clinique products on the whole for your information. No parabens, no phthalates (no salt and esters of phthatic acid) and fragrance free. Needless to say, a safe bet for all skin types, including for sensitive skin if I am not mistaken and this Clinique Liquid Facial Soap being an effective, soft, non-drying gentle cleanser for protecting skin's natural moisture balance.

South Indian Style Fish Curry


Fish curry in my house (Thai Green Fish Curry, Asam Pedas Ikan Bawal & Malaysian Fish Head Curry)? What can or should I possibly say? If not once a week, at least every fortnight. Even if it’s not fish curry, there must be some sort of fried fish various types (Fried Fish Soy Sauce, Ikan Goreng Asam & Thai Crispy Fish). Obviously for the matter every few days once due to? Fish being the brain food for my other half-half. Mmmm? Cooking for our loved or loving ones? You tell me please. I am sure you know what I am talking about? Easier said than done I suppose and we women mostly, in fact, all the time making it a point in cooking what our loved ones will pleasure into. Furthermore, over the years, honestly, though I did try, I have given up on trying to coax my other half-half in trying chicken (Karaikudi Chicken Curry) or pork (Pork Bulgogi). Not worth because trust me, food can actually rock the marriage boat. Especially when age has caught up and you realize that you don't have anymore energy in trying to change your husband's food likes or dislikes. Instead, better to leave them alone and just go with the flow by cooking the food they will pleasure into.

Mentholatum Lip Ice Sheer Color 2g Shimmer


My lips. Yes. Yes. Mine alright. My lips which has come a long way, by being part of me for the last 55 years. Honestly everyone, lemme profess. As much as I constantly try not to deny my lips care and attention? I suppose, the other is, we can't stop the ageing process? However and whatever, ageing taking a toll on our lips for not remaining as rosy and unspoiled as when we first crawled out of our mothers worm? Also, we without realizing, sometimes taking our lips for granted. Nevermind. Nothing is too late. No. Not at all if you are asking Navak K because we can still camouflage our lips by applying lipstick, or what are lips balms for? Personally for me, unless when special occasions are warranted for, I actually prefer lip balms for casual outings or even at home for keeping my lips moisturized and hydrated.

Shyet-Li's Kopitiam (Jaya 33) Petaling Jaya


Back to learning and knowledge thirsting at 55. Not easy. Absolutely not trust me. In fact, two weeks before classes started.? Oh-god! Nerves literally wrecking me and butterflies aimlessly swimming in my stomach. Let alone! Can you imagine how it would be like the night before the first class? I hardly slept hack. Then again, when we have already decided? I guess, by hook or by crook, we gotto brave it and face it? Pretty much. After all. Age in front or at the back of us shouldn't be a stumbling block for learning? Pretty much lifelong learning. Whether we learn by returning to class or we learn from failures and falls? Sure. My 9 to 5 class on this particular day? Despite the hiccup to being stuck in a 2 hours jam all the way from Shah Alam to PJ and walking into class 20 minutes late. Nothing no regrettable. Class started favorably and of course, one of the best things about adult learning? Food. Assured. You will be well fed. Morning tea break and evening tea break, and seriously, I didn't expect lunch will be included. What's there to complain about anyway? Why on earth should you? Neh! For the better of course. Complimentary or cost already taken up in your fee?

Malay Style Udang Sambal


Yes. Of course. There is infinitely, as far as I know, various types of Udang Sambal or as per say, Sambal Udang (Sambal Goreng Udang Pete). Udang Sambal obviously, if you are asking me, is a popular Malaysian dish and specifically the originality of Malay cooking. And I? Do I have to repeat myself again and again? I just so love Malay food and sambal (Sardine Sambal & Sambal Tumis Telur)? Oh my sambal! Trust me, a spicy Malaysian delight, perhaps I must include Indonesian various types of sambal as well (Ikan Cabe Ijo) and Malay Style Udang Sambal? Truly, such an authentic cooking style, but somehow not the same as the Chinese style or Indian style Udang Sambal. For Indian Style Udang Sambal, its mostly curry powder and curry leaves, whereas Chinese Style Udang Sambal (Sichuan Chilli Prawns), specifically a Nyonya style, more or less, pretty much to a certain extent, can be trended somewhat to Malay Style Udang Sambal (Nyonya Okra Sambal). Still, I will vouch that nothing can out-beat or over-take a Malay Style Udang Sambal (Sambal Belimbing Ikan Bilis). Malay Style Udang Sambal! The absolute full-flavored, greatest good tempting power house. Alright foodies. Grab this recipe of Nava K.

SAFI RANIA GOLD Moisturising Day Cream SPF25++IR


 
I maybe be assuming or  it could be somewhat true that, you must be asking if life coach Nava K a big fan of Safi Rania Gold Brand (Safi Rania Gold Youthful Radiance Face Mask)? Am I? Honestly, I myself am not really sure. Not being sure, by the way, believe me, is perfectly okay because there are possibilities we may not be sure about everything all the time? After all, in this case of mine, it's just a matter of preference for a certain brand (Safi Rania Gold Beetox Scrub) and not mind over matter, mind breaking matter in life? Still, one thing is possibly certain if I am to speak about Safi Rania Gold brand. A brand sort of like a magnetic force for drawing my attention each time I am at the pharmacy (Safi Ranis Gold Eye Contour Cream & Safi Rania Gold Scrub). At the pharmacy for picking up a skin care product and not because I am one of those who indulge in retail therapy for no apparent reason.

Vegetarian Potato Sambal


Vegetarianism and Nava K. Oh pleaseeee!!! Please don't put us side by side. Honestly everyone, vegetarianism is definitely out of the question for me. Neither will I force it on me for the sake of doing it or just because others are willingly or blindly jumping into the back wagon of vegetarianism. Seemingly, I may be wrong, but obviously, people are under the impression that if you are a vegetarian, you are a symbol of healthy living. For the Hindus as well, if not all, at least the rest, they are under the impression that abstaining from meat is a sign of holiness (Mushroom Curry/Kaalan Puli Kulambu). Really? I am not going to say anything further. Hindus, believe me, they are really sensitive if you talk about their religion. Anyway, whether you are a healthy grain or holy grain or not, there is such a thing as being a part-time vegetarian right (Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa & Nasi Minyak)? Why not? Whenever we feel we should or we want to instead of allowing others in pressuring us?

Fraser's Hill - Pahang


From Bentong to Frasers Hill. At our own speed. No, no. Please don't get me wrong. We weren't like strolling or nuisance driving. Basically, we didn't see a need for rushing or bulldozing our way through. After all, like I have told you before or maybe I didn't, inbound country road trips or even those across the continent. For a matter of fact. Wouldn't you agree should be easy going instead of wanting to prove a point to others we super heroes who are conquering one place after the other for the sake of showing off? Or, you might as well tell me as well. What is the point of travelling if we return home feeling bashed up, trashed out or worn out? Instead, shouldn't we hail or appreciate travelling as a relaxing frame of mind? As it is, like, we don't have enough of our day in day out daily grin I am sure you agreeing is already killing us softly? Must we also load up more stress by getting all worked up or paranoia in the name of travelling? Think about it, while I slowly take you through my travelling story. Out of Bentong, somehow, along the way, don't ask me why and what not, we somehow ending up Teras.

Ikan Cabe Ijo


 
Cooking at home or eating out? Which is cheaper? Yes please. Would love your opinion, but for the time being, if you are asking me, I must say that its quite a confusing matter as per say. Why? Because our opinion differs. Of course. To each our own. We decide what is best for us. Still, I can or I shouldn't discount that eating out may be cheaper for a single person. Provided you not a fussy eater and you are eating for the purpose of filling up your hunger. Basically, you won’t mind any kind of food from anywhere. A basic meal from coffee shops or road side stalls most probably? No harm done. I'm not saying anything more because we eat according to what we can afford instead of burning our money bridge. How about we now address the matter to eating out for a family of four? Mum, dad and two kids. Still cheap if we are talking about a basic meal again? Minimum, we paying most to most, we can cap the amount to within RM20.00 for each meal each time?

Restoran Sing Kee Wong (Seri Setia) - Sungai Way


Residence of Sungei Way and even those of you who are living within, around or a distance from Petaling Jaya. I may be wrong, but I can't help assuming you may have heard of Restoran Sing Kee Wong? Or you must at least have noticed their signboard whenever you drive pass the narrow road of Seri Setia/Sungai Way and quite a close distance from Kopitiam Under Big Tree. What about me? Sure. I too have notice their signboard due to me passing by this area whenever. But somehow, strange. All these years. Though the intention was always there for dining in Restoran Sing Kee Wong, yet, somehow, tell me about it? What we intend to do and what never materializes. For reasons we know or we don't. Finally, on this particular week day at the suggestion of my two friends who frequent Restoran Sing Kee Wong if not often, at least every now and then.

Life Coach. Who Is A Life Coach?


Life Coach. Shall I, must I or should I assume you know who is a life coach? Well, for a matter of fact, many of us, correct me if I am wrong, in one way or rather must have heard of life coaches? Correct? Unless otherwise? You are not really sure who life coaches are and what we do. Nevermind. Its really okay. Let me assure you that it is really okay if you only have a tiny bit of clue or no clue at all who is a life coach. What am I for anyway? As a life coach myself, the onus is on me. I should be the one who must tell you. I am by the way a life coach for business and personal development. Of course, life coaching by itself, is a broad or the broadest spectrum. You name it, you can engage a specific life coach for your specific spectrum or purpose. I on the other hand have decided in staying true to my expertise. Why? We are best at what we know best, wouldn't you agree? Based on our expertise, skills, abilities, knowledge and of course, as well, our hard earned credentials are our supporting assets. The question now is? What is my role as a life coach?

Nivea Body Lotions


Body lotion, body milk, body moisturiser, body balm or however. However you like to call or however a body cream is known to you. Obviously though, body lotion, is, yes is, for keeping our skin supple, moisturized, hydrated, healthy and comfortable  Of course, without a doubt, I am awarding all the yesses under or above the skin beauty world. Yesses? Are you right now, going like what are all the yesses for? The yesses are for affirming the fact that we all definitely need a body lotion. We sure do. We must in fact. Don't you think so? I'm sure you are agreeing? Otherwise, I rest my skin beauty case on you (St.Ives Body Lotion). But for the rest of you who are agreeing, thank you darlings. I suppose you are agreeing because you are absolutely certain that skin on our body must be a beauty package in tandem to our top to toe beauty? Honestly, tell me please. Who on earth will be proud or honorable if skin is dry, flaky or like fish scale? Moreover, lets not forget that dry skin is the road to disaster. The disaster to the possibilities of, over time or in due course, to skin slowly cracking up, bleeding and trust me, can cause infection as well.

Nyonya Okra Sambal


Nyonya me (Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa). Nyonya you (Stir Fried Jicama). Right. Me the home chef who can share my expertise on Nyonya cuisine (Mee Siam Kuah Vegetarian). Willingly of course. As an add-value for my professional as a life coach. Why can't I not or why  shouldn't I by the way? My Nyonya recipes (Ayam Masak Keluak) speaking for themselves and me having belted quite a good number of years to Nyonya cuisine cooking in my kitchen (Nyonya Acar Fish). Obviously, there are no short. No short? That's right. No short of Nyonya recipes (Nyonya Hot and Sour Fish Noodles) in this precious space of mine which, again said, is like a bonus for my clients and anyone for the matter.

Bentong, Pahang (Nava K's Discovery)


Bentong and not Betong. Betong (Thailand Nava K's Tripping). Yep sure. I admit. Honestly, I never knew Betong existed. Not anymore though. I can now confidently tell you the highs and lows or even spill the whole truth to Betong (Betong Episode 3). Bentong on the other hand? Of course. To a certain extent due to Bentong in Pahang is country known fact and also due to me having headed to Bentong. Lets say maybe like 4 to five times so far.

Sardine Peratal


Sardine Peratal? Sort of the next door to Sardine Varuval. I might as well include Sardine Sambal too. Plus, if I can, I would definitely love fresh sardines which are by the way quite an affordable our local catch. Then again, on the days I really can't push myself to marketing? Canned sardines. Sure enough. They are usually included as part and parcel of my provision buying. At least two cans are bought and stored in my pantry and these are, definitely the handy ingredients when, like I have told you, I have no time for marketing. Various dishes trust me, can be converted out of canned sardines. Including this Sardine Peratal (Tempoyak Masak Lemak Sardine & Sardine Masak Lemak Cili Padi). Even  Nadan Meen Curry is the produce out of canned sardine mind you. Alright, let's get down to the business of cooking Sardine Peratal. Nothing out of this world, yet, truly satisfying to our hunger. The minimalist when we speak about the ingredients and of course, easily and effortlessly put together dish.
