L'Oreal Paris White Perfect Clinical Overnight Treatment


Night Cream! We did speak about before (BIO-ESSENCE Bio-Bounce Essence Cream)? Not once (Olay Total Effects Night Cream)? We also took this beauty night matter till the height and weight of sea or ocean wave length (Garnier Night Restore Cream)? We sure did. Now, a question from me to you. Is it, is night cream now part and parcel of your beauty routine? Really up to you. But remember something. There is a difference between day cream and night cream. Then again, for a matter of our beauty fact, no one can stop you from using your day cream at night. Even I won't dare. Yet, if you are asking me, I will still go ahead and recommend a night cream. Especially if you have hit the "Big 5" like me, but definitely there is no age limit when you should start using. As long as? You personally feel its about time, go ahead and keep going.

Tomato Rasam/Thakkali Rasam


Rasam! Much have been spoken about before and much much I have also personally said about Rasam (Pepper Garlic Rasam). Rasam (Garlic Tomato Rasam). Of course. I vouch is our magical soup and one which is like a customary must have at least once a week. In fact, these days, I actually make in bulk. In other words, I make a bigger portion of rasam (Pineapple Rasam) and then, I separate into smaller portions for freezing. Time saving indeed. Rasam by the way can be kept outside because? Are we not talking about spices and our pantry friendly ingredients for rasam? We are actually (Egg Rasam). But somehow, call it my habit, I still somehow feel storing rasam in the fridge is a save bet. Of like I already told you, into individual containers and freeze. Tomato Rasam. Tomato naturally is one of the ingredients, but this my version of Tomato Rasam? The traditional (Home Rasam Podi Rasam). The handed down recipe. Grandma to mum and to me of course (Nandu/Crab Rasam). Though a tiny bit of pounding is involved, otherwise, all will be tasty, delicious and more importantly, appetizing for this Nava K's Tomato Rasam. Oh, in case you would like to try the instant version to an instant rasam (Instant Rasam), I'm attaching the video as well.

Yap Chuan Bak Kut Teh - Bandar Puchong Utama (Puchong)


The piggy pig bak kut teh in me? We are inseparable. For a fact. My all time favourite and I need my fix of bak kut teh if not regularly, at least every now and then (Siong Juat Bak Kut Teh Port Klang). But this thing to bak kut teh is quite an impossible mission. Why? Because you can't put my other half-half and pork together. Outrightly, he is anti-pork. Of course, I still have a choice. What are the coffee shop stalls for? Then again, trust me. Nothing like a bak kut teh communal meal with friends (Ming Kee Bak Kut Teh, Old Town). Like minded bkt lovers dining together and getting down to our own analysis if it was worthiness (Kepong Heng Bak Kut Teh) or pretty much just another Chinese pork soup.

Kaalan Puli Kulambu


Kaalan Puli Kulambu. Kaalan = mushroom. Puli = sour/sourness. Kulambu/Kuzhambu = curry. Easy explanation right? Kaalan Puli Kulambu or our Indian style mushroom sour curry and a vegetarian version as well. Mushrooms? They are quite a food pride in my house. We love mushrooms (Mushroom Rolls) and amongst the various types, somehow, we have a food love tendency for oyster mushroom which is really affordable. In fact, a packet of oyster mushrooms will only cost you a couple of dollars. Of course, you can use any other mushroom or even mushrooms in can (Creamy Mushroom Soup) too, but personally, I don't think I will or can suggest Shiitake mushroom. Why? Tried before and the taste does not jive and dance well pretty much in Indian sour curries.

Betong, Thailand (Nava K's Weekend Tripping) - Episode 3


End of Episode 2 (Betong Episode 2), followed by? Obviously must be Episode 3 right? Of course. From Betong Hot Spring to Namtok Inthason Waterfall. What’s with waterfall? Because I insisted. Me so loving water seeing and hearing, and water as my healing therapy for cleansing my body, mind and soul. Moreover, since we had to pass by the route Namtok Inthason Waterfall is located, why not? No harm done. Mountainous water cascading from a few levels higher up and flowing at its own sound of music. However, as far as I know, Namtok Inthason Waterfall is not a prominent water figure of Betong (Betong Part 1) and if I am not mistaken, have not been maintained for maybe the longest time.
Maybe that's there was no one was around except us even during this weekend. Can be quite eerie mind you. Then again, for the brave hearts, nothing can or should stop you from picnicking and water dipping. We on the other hand? 10 minutes most to most before heading to Winter Flower Garden.

Sardine Sambal


Sardine Sambal or Sambal Sardine. Both the same anyway. Its just a matter of whether you want to put sardine in front of sambal or sambal in front of sardine. Sardine Sambal. In fact, for a matter of fact, I really have lost count on the number of times I have already made (Sardine Varuval) and I know there will never be a full-stop. What is Sardine Sambal? Our Malaysian spicy side dish which is like the best food wonder when eaten alongside rice and you must, potentially, include Rasam (Pineapple Rasam), Sodhi (Malu Kirata) and Sambar (Udupi Sambar). Shall we grab the recipe now? Me unveiling my version of Sardine Sambal and you giving it a go? You should. Pretty much a simplicity in cooking, the easiest version by far and you just need a couple of our pantry friendly ingredients. Put your trust in this recipe of mine and? You will not be disappointed in any which way.

Kopitiam Under Big Tree (Sungai Way, Petaling Jaya)


Under The Tree, or The Big Tree or as my close friend calls it, Under The Yum-Yum Tree. Officially, known as Kopitiam Under Big Tree as per Google listing and it is where my friend is a regular customer, and he literally. I don't know like how many times already, been asking me to join him. Finally, we couldn't escape and out of curiosity as well, we agreed. From Shah Alam to his house in Kampung Tunku and then to Under Big Tree where people park at their whims and fancy within or around the whole stretch of road. Malaysians! We sort of prefer to escape from paying for parking even if its only two dollars? Only two dollars at the closest open car park. Yet? We rather complain hell of a lot when we see a summon under our car wind screen? I guess. Some things will never change in Malaysia? Our Malaysian mentality of causing inconvenience to fellow Malaysians by parking as we wish? Madness. What about us? We paid prior to walking into Under Big Tree.

Safi Rania Gold Youthful Radiance Face Mask


What's the story? The beauty story to Safi Rania Gold Youthful Radiance Face Mask? My hope? Major hope of bouncing back to my yesteryears? Back to my youthful years by pumping up the volume to youthfulness and that's why I bought Safi Rania Gold Youthful Radiance Face Mask? Are we kidding ourselves? Of course, without a doubt, beauty mask hope is the hope for keeping our skin clear and clean. But reversing our beauty gears to 10 years or even 5 years back then? Actually, come to think it, not impossible if money is ever willing for undergoing nip and tuck or the other logical option admittedly is aesthetic beauty enhancement. Otherwise, can we like get the real deal? The deal to beauty practically? In fact, we must. Listen. If women like me in my fifties who go through hell of a lot daily, or these days, even the younger ones are potentially the beauty victims in battling all sort of stress, if we can trash tiredness aside from our skin by keeping our skin nourished and vibrant, its already millions of likes and following by ourselves.

Big Baba - Taman Desa


Big Baba! Who is Big Baba? I don't know if Big Baba is a person or just a name coining. But rest assured. Big Baba is where you tuck into a Nyonya Meal. Any particular reason why we dined in Big Baba? Nothing really conclusively. Just that after running or walking some errands within the vicinity of Old Klang Road, hunger bells rang for lunch. Why then specifically Big Baba amongst the rest of the restaurants which popped up online at my search? Let.s just say that, due to me being a big fan of  Nyonya food and also, since I have already crowned myself as a big time or small time Nyonya home chef, I wanted to personally find out if Big Baba will outrightly be a Nyonya food pride.

Betong, Thailand (Nava K's Weekend Tripping) - Episode 2


Did I? Did I sleep? What should I possibly? Say? Loud knocking and slamming of doors until almost 6am, and me at first like, wondering if Betong hotel devils are playing sparks. Not until later, once I put two and two together conclusively? Oh! The tale of Betong. The prominent tale to alcohol and after effects of clubbing or even maybe? Strip Shows or Tiger Shows taking a toll on human devils. Human devils not as in males only. Even the horrifying giggles of women? Remember, I told you (Betong Thailand Episode 1)? Betong is? The sex land for men. Can Betong be the sex land for women? You figure it out for yourself. Whatever! Hopping out of bed by 6.30am after like sleeping, maybe 4 hours most to most, I showered and down to the lobby. My two friends? They are always the earliest birds. They in fact had already embarked on a mini tour within the nearby area and we later, going with the flow of Betong streets for, where can breakfast be.

Lankan Cafe - Taman Petaling, Petaling Jaya


 
Lankan Café! Was Lankan Café like a stumbled upon by chance food discovery? Nope! I in fact had already prior read and for me personally, I am more incline in finding out about eateries from Google Maps. Yep. Google Maps where foodies actually share honest and sincere reviews. Unlike on blogs and online media? Look, I am not saying all blogs and online media are full of crap. I myself am a blogger by the way, but potentially, what can you expect when you eat for free or you are paid to write and video share on social media as well? You tell me and even if I am proven wrong, I will still stick to my guns in trusting reviews on Google Maps which by far carries more weight mostly and after reading the favorable reviews on Lankan Café, I decided. Lankan Café must be food tested out. After all, yours truly, she quite know it? Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan cuisine already much explored (Colombo & Negambo) and to certain extent, I myself am quite a Sri Lankan home chef in my kitchen too. How did my other half-half react when I suggested Lankan Café? He had no qualms whatsoever. Basically, no objection. Why should he anyway? Comparatively, Sri Lankan food is all things spicy nice like Indian food and of course we must look up and down to coconut milk or even fresh coconut when we speak about Sri Lankan cuisine on the whole? Without a doubt.

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk


Trying my level best in staying true to my budget sometimes can go mayhem. Does happen mind you when you least expect or one of those things which can possibly throw you off guard. Of course, there have been instances I did it right by buying skin care products (Bio-Essence Collagen Essence Cream) within my budget or the best buys, but sometimes, the unexpected seemingly is the expected. For my makeup dolling myself up products, it’s pretty much quite straightforward. I have no qualms settling for the off-the-shelves, mid-range affordable ones (Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm). But when my skin care is a concern, I am dead serious because skin care must deliver what they promise me. In other words, they must deliver care for my 54 year old skin and when I speak about cleansers and cleansing on the whole, I am only keen in an all-in-one cleanser (Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm). Been like that for as long as I can remember.

Tang Pin Kitchen - SS2, Petaling Jaya


For whatever reason it may have been, it fact I myself can't comprehend why I decided to take on the roads all the way from Old Klang Road leading to SS2. Though I can't exactly nail what's with me and SS2 specifically on this particular day, one thing however was absurdly certain. I wanted to badly have a meal. Hunger basically waving and calling me loudly and SS2 by far for me? Still memorable and unforgettable till this day. How can I possibly forget because SS2, as well as Sea Park Apartment were my territories for 18 years in my mid-twenties to late thirties and before uprooting in 2013 for giving myself a promising new lease of marriage life in Kota Kemuning. SS2. Even back then? A mini power house food paradise. Of course where the birth of the first ever Murni took place, I might as well include Chow Yang and Nasi Kandar Kayu which most probably are still the prominent food leaders in SS2, and also the hawker stalls across the police station when clubbing and wee hours supper were in tandem for me. SS2, more or less outwardly still the same, of course traffic and parking madness has further mounted and there are now aplenty choices to eateries.

Betong, Thailand (Nava K's Weekend Tripping)


Betong? I went like, where the hell is Betong? Is there such a place as Betong in the first place? Honestly guys, I'm not shy to admit I have never ever heard of Betong in my entire life. In fact, when my two friends, the couple, the husband and wife team I travel with every now and then mentioned Betong and also asked me if I want to join them for a road trip to Betong, for a minute or two, I really didn't know what to say. Of course, how could I have possibly said no (Jogjakarta & Kyoto/Osaka)? Me and my love for travelling and trust me, as long as I am able, there will no bracket to me globe tracking (Kuantan) whether in country bound (Pulau Ketam, Penang & Langkawi) or across the sea. Anyway, once I digested the fact that Betong is actually a town in Southern Thailand, near our Malaysian border, which by the way didn't matter to me, nor I cared too hooks where I will be heading (Melaka, Port Dickson & Sungkai), I quickly and loudly said yes without even checking with my other half-half.

Thai Odyssey @ klia2 (Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Sepang)


 Me time, my time or our time to us. Wouldn’t you agree is important and should be our priority? Of course if you are asking me. Maybe not always because I am one person who believe there must be check and balance in everything we do, but every now and then, we must really put ourselves at the forefront for doing whatever pleasing to us. Can be anything for the matter and not necessarily packing our bags for travelling the horizon, yet it can be even the smallest things instead of procrastinating, or debating within ourselves or putting on a drama for secretly hoping others will find time for us. Nonsense! Stop sitting and waiting. Instead you should move your own butt in finding even a few hours for being alone by ditching everything aside. Yes ladies. Please! Albeit I am definitely not referring to the current generation of women who, trust me, are the lucky ones. All cared for by mum or even husbands these days? Glorifying and worshipping the ground their wives walk by giving the best. Yet the best is not good enough. No wonder marriages are crumbling like no body’s business despite social media showy weddings? Who are actually the women I feel must take their time for breaking away from the monotony of the daily stressful grind? Women in my age group. Women like me in our fifties and above who work, who cook, clean and are there for our love ones in every count countlessly. Yet we can still hold our forts without complaining? Regardless, I know how frustrating it can get. That’s why, like I have already told you, go ahead, be selfish and take your time without allowing anyone to get into your way.

Khunthai Authentic Thai Restaurant - Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya


Keeping the marriage flame going, trust me, is no easy feat. Especially once the years catches up on us and if you have been married for donkey years like me, I think you can precisely understand what I am trying to say. Courting is over and maybe marriage sparks flamed high, let’s say for the first five years and consequently? Knowingly or unknowingly, to a certain extent we taking each other for granted due to our work commitment, or so called busyness of achieving success, fame and fortune. Of course, I am not denying the fact that the dollar and cents we earn is a prerequisite for a comfortable marriage life. Like they say, no money no honey, but in our quest for further cushioning our marriage with money, we somehow take each other for granted. Wouldn’t you agree? In other words, we conveniently forget we must ignite and initiate our marriage flame before automatically allowing marriage to take a slow death by becoming mundane and boring until it literally begs for tender loving care? Of course. Without a doubt. Tell me about it.

BIO-ESSENCE Bio-Bounce Collagen Essence Cream


There’s definitely a beauty story behind this BIO-ESSENCE, Bio-Bounce Bird’s Nest Collagen Essence Cream. But I am not sure if it will sound like an intriguing story to your ears and eye sight or you are going judge me due to my silliness or let's say mistake. What's the story are you asking me right now? Goes like this. I was at the pharmacy looking for a night cream because the one I have been using is coming to an end. In other words, I had to replenish my night cream (Olay Total Effects Night Cream) and at the pharmacy, oh-boy, I couldn't be happier there was a beauty promoter who recommended and suggested this collagen essence cream from Bio-Bounce Bird’s Nest range (Bio Essence Gold Platinum Dual Eye Essence & Bio Essence Bio Water Jelly Make Up Remover). Sounded convincing and I didn't mind paying RM64.06. However, when I returned home, I was rather confused because I specifically mentioned I want a night cream. Don't know what when wrong where and after like the first 5 minutes, I myself concluded that most probably BIO-ESSENCE Bio-Bounce Collagen Essence Cream is actually a dual cream. Meaning, you can use it during the day and at night as well. The best logical reasoning I suppose? Whatever, I went ahead and its been almost a month now since BIO-ESSENCE Bio-Bounce Collagen Essence Cream has been touching my skin as a night cream.

Surakarta (Solo) - Jogyakarta


The last day. In fact, the finale. The finale to our sightseeing before we permanently bid bye-bye to Yogyakarta. That's right everyone. Our last day to sightseeing which will put a permanent full-stop before we pack our bags and return home next morning. Will I return to "Jogja" again? I don't think so (Jogyakarta Part 3 & Jogyakarta Part 2) because I am one person who seldom travel venture to the same destination again and I think we have to a certain extent already achieved much in terms of Jogja sightseeing. Or maybe, just saying, there are other sightseeing spots we have missed out? Then again, what else can you do in Jogja? (Mount Merapi Tour & Borobudur Yogyakarta)? You tell me. For those of you who have already travel conquered Jogyakarta at the back of your hands, maybe you will be the best person who can tell?

Aerotel Kuala Lumpur (Airport Hotel) - Gateway@klia2 (Sepang)


What’s in store in KLIA2 lately? In fact, as far as I know, Aerotel Kuala Lumpur has already made its presence known amongst near and afar travelers, or shall I say anyone for the matter who fly in and out of Klia2. Aerotel Kuala Lumpur. Yes, the hotel where you can rest, relax or you can put up the hours at your pleasure. “Grand Opening” of Aerotel, jointly officiated by our Minister Of Transport Yang Berhormat Mr Anthony Loke and Mr Song Hoi-see, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Plaza Premium Group on 28th August, 2018. Of course, it was my honour as well being among the invited guests during this grand opening which mind you, I must say was just spot on. Honestly, I was utterly impressed. Straight to the point, no long speeches but hitting the nail hard on Aerotel being our Made-In-Malaysia brand. Truly and sincerely, a proud moment for a typical and do or die Malaysian like me and for each and every Malaysian.

Safi Rania Gold Beetox Facial Scrub With Nano Gold 24K (75g)


What about a question from me to you before anything else? I am sure you won't mind? Right. The question is? Is a scrub in-need, indeed or you have not considered a scrub yet or scrub is one of it as part of your beauty care? Beauties, listen to me please. A scrub is in-need if you are asking me. Yes. You need a scrub. Why? Potentially for your once a week scrubbing which you should include in your home facial beauty care for getting rid of your accumulated dead skin cells. In other words, for exfoliating. For removing impurities and for promoting a smooth, clear and clean complexion. However, I wouldn't dare say that scrub and scrubbing can put back or pull back your youthfulness. Instead, I think the logic is for maintaining our skin regardless of age and gender. Of course, men can scrub as well. Who said no? Not me. Not me. Scrubbing by far as I have already told you is once a week especially if your skin is sensitive as mine or maybe most to most twice a week. That too if your skin is receptive. Anything more than that? Personally, I won't encourage because over-scrubbing can have an adverse effect on our skin and for those of you who are struggling with acne, I wouldn't even dare to suggest unless and until you know it for sure for yourself.

DU'IT Dry Foot & Heel Roll-A-Balm


Our foot or our feet. The lowest part, the part cushioning and supporting us. In fact, our feet are our pillars of strength. I am sure you are agreeing? I hope you are because? Imagine? Can you imagine or have you given a thought that our feet are the engine for our whole body? Our feet taking us from one spot to the other. Whether to the closest distance or further. My question now is? What happens when our feet gets worn out? Wear and tear which we can choose to ignore or we are concern about. Wear and tear in return meaning crack heel and dryness (Rosken Skin Repair Feet & Heel Balm). Notably, slowly or surely showing up. Should we be concern? Should we worry? Should we then pay attention to this part of body? Of course. There's no doubt about it. We should. Otherwise? Feet ugliness, and possibly infection, maybe even pain and we struggling in walking. Yes. To a certain extent or perhaps better for us to accept these facts as the reality. Henceforth, what should we do? Of course we must do something and that something is applying foot and heel cream. Basically we putting our care on our feet. Remember? Much I have already spoken and shared before (Ellgy Plus Cracked Heel Cream)? Right.

St.Ives Nourish & Soothe Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Lotion


Beauty is not about perfection. Neither can we include cuteness and prettiness in the same category. Sorry guys, I'm afraid not. Perfection, let me tell you does not exist. Unless and until you can prove me wrong? If you feel you must strongly prove me wrong, can you point to me any one woman for the matter who is an example of beauty is perfection? And I will, yes I will in return sincerely and genuinely bow my head lowest to you. Of course, if you are referring to women who have it all everything? Everything meaning the best. Fame and fortune, above all, they don’t go through the daily grind like us. The us? The ordinary, average, practical and in the middle or lower income women. We, tell me about it? The things we struggle to manage and balance? Family, love, career and for those of you who are in your fifties like me, forget not that our aged parents are part of our responsibility as well.

Yogyakarta, Indonesia ( Day 3) - Nava K Trailed


Buffet breakfast.The first and foremost on our third day. Buffet breakfast, as you know travellers, those of you who travel for business or pleasure so be it, generally is included in our hotel stay Unless otherwise? You have opted out for reasons only you know best? You and your reasons could possibly be? You are not a breakfast person or you prefer to seek your own, your start-up meal of the day? You can. Certainly. But make sure when you book your room, you have made it known. Some hotels do allow, others, sorry to say, I think you have to take the deal. I usually, I grab the deal whenever I am galloping the horizon. Easier, convenient and saves my time. Local inbound tripping on the contrary, well, a different food matter altogether for me. I won’t mind, sure, I am all in for walking my Malaysian ground for food seeking (Kuantan Pahang & Vistana Kuantan City Centre). Anywhere. Literally. Coffee shops or even street stalls.

Kuantan (Pahang) - Nava K Travel Guide (Part 2)


Where else and what else for us in Kuantan (Kuantan Part 1 & Vistana Kuantan)? Well, food spotting or perhaps better for me to say as dinner hunger tucking in. Food of course is a compulsory matter right, no matter where we are? Whether we have crossed the horizon for out of the country travel venturing or within our own country in-bound? Precisely. Weather in Kuantan on this day, hell-hack of a weather. Rainy day. Rain which started pouring, mind you, one of the heaviest for causing sky darkness as early as 6.00pm and we on the other hand, braving rain for heading to Ana Ikan Bakar Petai. At the suggestion of our Kuantan friend who have been driving us around from the time we arrived in Kuantan. According to him further, Ana Ikan Bakar Petai seemingly is the populous. In other words, the popularity. Ana Ikan Bakar Petai is the one that draws much more customers compared to the rest of the other ikan bakar/grilled fish eateries I bet you will notice while on your way to within this specific long stretch of road. Ana Ikan Bakar Petai and the rest however are simultaneous. Meaning, these are the unassuming, basic, stall kinda concept eateries and most probably, I'm guessing by the way, offering the same kinda food.

Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm Cherry 4.8g


Am I going through some sort of lip balm buying obsession (Mentholatum Lip Crayon Balm)? Not really. Not as far as I can conclude. I doubt actually. Its just that the every now and then walking in and out of pharmacies is the reason for the matter, why I pick up products that draws my attention (Neutrogena Hydrogel Mask & Olay Total Night Cream). Of course, like I have already told you before, pharmacies are also where I scout for beauty and skin care products (Dr Check Heel Cream & Watsons Blood Orange Shower Gel) I need to replenish. Skin care products obviously for my daily skin maintaining caring and I suppose there is no right and wrong beauty formula for beauty products? Anytime supposedly is a beauty time? To work, for casual outings, for special occasions, but beautifying yourself when you are most comfortable in your dirty shorts and t-shirt at home and when you are sweating profusely while cooking and house cleaning? Honestly, I really don't know nor can I comprehend. I really can't comment. Maybe, you can tell me? Regardless, you must remember something. Whether you are indoor or outdoor, please keep sun rays away from your skin. UV rays mind can take a toll on us (La Mer SPF 50 Fluid & Missha BB Cream). No sun protection and sun in return causing aged wrinkled skin, as well as sun pots. I bet you don't want to look older for your age?

The Social - Empire Subang, Subang Jaya


Friendship bonding? Important. I am not saying no. I must agree friendship bonding, maybe not an utmost top priority, but it is without a doubt important. Important for nourishing our inner senses and feelings even for someone like who generally am a solo-socializer. Yea right. For those of you who know me personally or in the visual world, I bet you have already gathered the fact that I am not only a solo-socializer, I am as well a solo-traveler. Solo-socializing mostly when I need a break out of my house (Ten Years Sunway, Penang Road Cendol Sunway & The Coffee & Bar) and mainly for appreciating my own company is the best company. I guess this thing to enjoying your own company is profound once age catches, especially when the bell has rung hard for indicating that if you can enjoy your own company, you won't depend on friends for putting your happiness in perspective? Remember, those friendship matters I have already told you before? Nevertheless, in all fairness, I admit I still love friendship bonding with closest, sincere, genuine friends (Makhan By Kitchen Mafia, Restoran Lucky Loke & Ming Kee Bak Kut Teh) instead of those great pretenders who are so skillful in making use of you.

Jogyakarta, Indonesia - Day 2, (Part 2)


What a start for the day. Interesting, trilling, exciting, mind boggling and sweat dripping profusely as well. In fact, I must tell you that its been a promising Jogyakarta so far. First day basically exposing us to our first full blown Jogyakarta meal, followed by the hours, around, all around as far further as we could by walking our legs in and out of Jalan Malioboro (Yogyakarta, Indonesia). This morning on the other hand, anyone for the matter who come this far to Jogyakarta will, must seek and explore Borobudur. Borobudur definitely being the height for sunrise watching and Borobudur Temple by itself the lock, stock and barrel of Yogyakarta travelling porn. Thereafter, we heading to the other packaged together tourist spots (Yogyakarta Day 2) and later, my-my, the other side of Jogyakarta must experience, mountain trailing Mount Merapi adventure (Mount Merapi Jeep Tour), which by far is about understanding and gasping the facts to Mount Merapi and its after effects, fieriness consequences. Up next? Our scheduled lunch brekkie. Badly looked forward to due to jeep tour ending us energy drained, plus, remember, we wee hours jump starting our day? Honestly, once Merapi Jeep Tour ended, food hunger throne had automatically taken charge of our mind until it didn't matter where lunch will be. Neither did we bother checking with our tour guide. Nevertheless, never did we expect in our slightest moment that lunch will be a top notch, on all counts stealer in Restaurant Timpul Roso.

Neutrogena Fine Fairness Hydrogel Mask


Age matters. It does in the real-deal world. Believe me. I am certainly not referring to the visual social media world, I am point blank, precisely referring to the world evolving around us daily. The real world, whether we like it or not, we have to face daily. Whoever who is saying age does not matter, oh-please, I think you seriously don't know what is happening around you or you are still a young dolling. Perhaps because age is on your side, easier to preach than to accept the reality I suppose?  Look, I am not saying age is a stumbling block, yet the truth is otherwise. Not sure if this is the case around the globe, but we Malaysians, we judge people by age. Age is mind you a barrier for job seeking, especially for ladies who want to return to work after nurturing their kids, age does make a difference for love seeking, whether you want a man for toying around or for marriage and have you noticed older women being featured in beauty product commercials? Anything you like to say or you beg to differ? Let me know, but I am still sticking to my guns and roses opinion. I sincerely believe I am not wrong. Take it from this lady who is in her fifties.

Kuantan (Pahang) - My Travel Guide


Kuantan and this lady Nava K, seriously, dead serious actually, who want to achieve one of her missions, for the longest time she has been harbouring “To Love Malaysia Is To Discover Malaysia”? She mind you, no doubt been doing good so far, yet, she is not going to pull the brakes to inbound sightseeing (Penang Sightseeing, Pulau Ketam & Langkawi). What about Kuantan, are you asking? Honestly, we were alien to each other. We never ever met at all. This is our first ever time. Strange isn't it? I know. Speak about what else and the things we are aiming to achieve, while knowingly or unknowingly allowing the years to pass by, and then, without us realising, kick the bucket or living to regret? Inevitably.

Clinique All About Eyes Cream


Did I put a full stop? Did I stop with just one Clinique product (Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm)? Obviously, I have already given you the clue right? Oh-yes, I added another two into my beauty bag. Clinique All About Eyes Cream and Clinique Liquid Face Wash. Yes I did. Are you asking me why? To tell you the truth, I am one person who don’t’ like the idea of walking the walk in shopping malls for no apparent reason, nor for picking up only one product. Money for driving and parking is cost as well and my time is precious too because I have better things to do instead of spending my time in shopping malls. Maybe you don't understand or you are under the impression I am a miser or stinginess is my middle name. Well then, I suggest you wait till reality sets in once age has caught up on you? When you will realise every single dollar spend and every minute of your time will add other qualities and values in your life. Exactly? Buying ahead mind you is no lost, though you have to cough out money in a bigger sum or the best deal is the sales deal for your cutting edge throughout the years beauty cost. Clinique Liquid Face Wash is yet to be tested, whereas Clinique All About Eyes Cream is already my eye beauty care for the last three months.
