MAC Lightful C + Coral Grass Vibrancy Eye Cream

MAC Cosmetics. Of course. Back then. When money was sunshiny (MAC Compact MAC Mineral Eye Cream). When I had a full time job compared to working from home, working for myself and earning lesser now. Anyway, not at all a regret. Why are you asking me? Well, because when you earn less, you are more prudent in spending, furthermore, you only spend on what is necessary, and when necessary. Having said that, no matter what, the reality is, we still have to spend on skin care regardless right? Certainty. I mean, our skin care products can last forever? Of course not. Pretty much summing up why I invested in MAC Lightful C + Coral Grass Vibrancy Eye Cream. And MAC Cosmetics by far? Sure. I can vouch been quite favorable on my skin. Then again, price-wise? Rather pricey mind you! At least for someone like me and imported products like MAC Cosmetics. Aha! Exchange rate. Our Ringgit Malaysia against products imported from countries whereby dollars and cents are higher? Let alone, don't forget that, the cost of exclusively packaged products, as far as I know, already included in the price we pay.

South India - Bangalore/Bengaluru (Nava K Explored)

Finally! Oh My God! Must be the blessings showered upon me from afar, from the gods in South India. After years of faulty failures to planning and literally coaxing my other half-half for years as well. Hah! In the end, I gave a damn to every damn thing aside. Let alone this man I have been married to for donkeys years who wouldn't move his butt in accompanying me for a trip to South India. His reason. Mmmm! Plain simple and nothing new. Work commitment. Nevermind I told myself and instead of still keeping my fingers crossed, hoping things will change on my home front, I gave up. I went ahead by joining a tour. Tour of 8 people and mind you, except for knowing one person, the one who organised this tour, the rest unknown. Like it mattered to me anyway? Like you are friends needy for travelling and me, already crowned as a solo-traveller.

Sekinchan (Selangor) 1 Day Trip - Part 2

What else (Sekinchan Part 1)? What else must or should be considered as part and parcel of our sightseeing in Sekinchan? Okay. Lemme start. Ah Ma House, which by the way, wasn't like a major thing for us, thereafter, we heading to Paddy Processing Factory & Gallery. Just a short drive by the way. Within a distance of 3 or most to most 4 minutes. Anyway, Sekinchan, for your information, is a small town and most, in fact, all the sightseeing spots are located within a short distance. Plus, let me tell you ahead that sightseeing in Sekinchan can be completed within, a day or even lesser. Unless, of course, you want to remain in Sekinchan for another day or two? For reasons best known to you? Go ahead. Your time, you decide.

Himalaya Protein Hair Cream

What is hair promising for one, I guess, I suppose, may not possibly be for another. What has already been said as worth the hair investment in the virtual world, sadly, unfortunately, didn't turn out as Nava K expected. What am I talking about ladies and gentlemen? Well, specifically. This Himalaya Protein Hair Cream. Me reading about the promising reviews on Himalaya Protein Hair Cream and getting carried away it will do justice for taming my shrew frizzy hair (Revlon Uniq All In One Hair Treatment). Did I stop, at the point of just reading and digesting what has been said? No. Of course not. How can it be? I, mind you, went like on roller blades within the next few days to Himalaya store, Gamuda Walk, Kota Kemuning and obviously, Himalaya Protein Hair Cream following me back home (RM31.00).

33 Blue Room - Section 51a, Zone Perindustrian PJCT (Petaling Jaya)

33 Blue Room. In an area I pass by every now and then. In fact, quite often actually and trust me, not in my slightest moment I knew, neither have I noticed 33 Blue Room. Not until on this particular Wednesday for friendship bonding with my two friends who have prior reserved a table. Oh yes please. Reserve your table. Unless otherwise. You don't mind waiting in line and parking, may be somewhat troubling if you want to park right in front, but if your legs are willing, sure, park along the road side. 33 Blue Room. Wah! Honest to goodness, the moment I walked in. An ultimate admirable ambiance. As though I am in a magic haven. My-my! After all, its been sometime since I have dined in such a restaurant. Me and my quiet life? Of course, when the need warrants for, especially, for meaningful, sincere, down to earth, and not those, crappy, fake, social media showing needy friendship, you can count on me.

Watsons FootEase Cracked Heel Cream

It gets harder and harder, and tougher and tougher as well. It does mind you. I don't know about you, it does for me personally. Well, like I have already told you before. I'm not a sweet lolly anymore and as we age, our skin. Yes. Our skin taking its course to drying up. Literally everywhere. Even including dry down there. Where? Go figure and of course too, what about skin on, around and under our feet? Our feet which we need for walking us from one spot to the other and the more we expose our feet to water, the drier they will tend to be. Plus, the wear and tear of wearing glamorous heels? Furthermore, when we conveniently forget to pay attention to this part of our body? We basically taking our feet for granted. Until and unless, most probably the cracks on our feet becoming more prominent until sometimes to the extent they flake so badly until bleeding and we can't bear the pain.

Sekinchan (Selangor) 1 Day Trip - Part 1

Sekinchan. I was told that Sekinchan located in Sabak Bernam, Selangor is a must do. Yes. Must do (Cameron Highlands Pahang). Do or die kinda, I shouldn't miss out on exploring Sekinchan (Alor Setar Revisited). Told by who by the way? Well. Those who have already, obviously explored Sekinchan and Sekinchan, obviously too, for your information, already profoundly known in the virtual world (Frasers Hill Pahang). What else was I told about Sekinchan? I was told that the primarily or central attraction in Sekinchan must be none other than the paddy fields. Paddy fields, especially when they are at their green-green or full blown yellow lush. Also, just before or right before harvesting. Honestly, to tell you the truth, I have been planning for a trip to Sekinchan for almost a year, but been put on hold due to the weather. Weather either unbearably burn-baby-burn hot or rainy season lashing merciless. Finally, somehow, taking into considering that weather can be tolerated, though still the hot season, me tripping to Sekinchan and prior to arriving in Sekinchan, we stopping by in Restoran Suang Le River (Tanjung Karang, Kuala Selangor) for lunch.

Alor Setar Revisited (Nava K Tripping)

Alor Setar. Yes. Nava K returned to Alor Setar again. Alor Setar. The state capital of Kedah and the second largest city after Sungei Petani. By the way, any particular reason why we made this trip to Alor Setar? Nothing really. Except maybe, instead of returning home after being in Penang, we thought it will be a great idea to catch up with our Alor Setar friends we have not seen for some time and also, some free, easy time for ourselves. Of course, ultimately, when friendship is a concern for us Malaysians? I'm sure you must be agreeing. We Malaysians no matter what, must bond friendship over food. Precisely. We arriving in Alor Setar by noon and alongside our friends, 5 of them, plus obviously at their recommendation, lunching in Numeral Eight Curry House.

The Barn Wine Bar Sunway Pyramid

Up and down, back and forth, to and fro, until our legs almost, literally like falling apart, plus hunger too biting killing us non-stop on this particular Saturday afternoon. Not to say there are no choices to eateries in Sunway Pyramid, but most of them, especially, those like fast food outlets, packed back to back, and we definitely weren't interested in waiting in line. What about the rest of the eateries? I have, believe me, to a certain extent, tested and tried out (Ten Years, NY Steak Shack & Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul). Maybe, not the whole lot of it, but pretty much even before I started this space of mine. Well, what can you expect. Sunway Pyramid is where you will see me picking up the stuffs I need if not regularly, at least every now and then.

Garden of Eden Gentle Milk Cleanser

Expensive does not mean better, affordable does not mean interior (Nivea Body Lotions & Mentholatum Lip Ice Sheer). I think, if I am not mistaken, I have told you before? About this beauty skin care products theory before? Indeed. Most probably I have. Look, skin care products not necessary must be exclusively expensive. What is important actually should be what suits your skin. Also, remember, the other beauty theory of mind? Budget. Basically, what we can afford instead of blindly being convinced that we can only maintain or improvise our skin by expensive products (Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk). Let alone, let's not forget that we pay a lot more for imported products due to exchange rate. Of course, subjective to which country the products are from and compared to our Made In Malaysia products (Safi Rania Gold Youthful Sheet Mask). Take this Made In Malaysia Garden of Eden Gentle as a profound example (Garden of Eden Rosa E Pigmentation Serum). RM21.70 and picked up from Caring Pharmacy, Gamude Walk, Kota Kemuning. Honestly everyone, I swear. I swear that this white, creamy and rather thick in texture milk cleanser, packaged in a basic plastic chubby tube, with a pull up, push down cap/cover, has been a cleansing wonder for my dehydrated sensitive skin. Furthermore, when its a cleanser made from natural ingredients.

Kacang Buncis Kunyit (Beans Turmeric)

Healthy living (Murungai Keerai Poriyal, Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti & Cucumber Yogurt Salad). Yes. Yes. The whole world is like, won't and can't stop preaching about healthy eating, healthy ingredients and healthy cooking. Honestly, I, to a certain extent, am quite lost on what's with the obsession to healthy living. In fact, every where daily. Social media, whatsapp groups, daily conversations, etc, etc, etc. God! Like what? Am I like the only one who is missing out on healthiness? Anyway, let's now narrow down specifically on healthy cooking. Organic ingredients, or using specific ingredients for our cooking or, you tell me please? If you are asking me, there is no better healthier food on earth than our home cooked meals, cooked in a clean environment. Home food for me personally is the ultimate healthy living. Alright, in tandem to healthy cooking, here's to a healthy dish. Kacang Buncis Kunyit, aka Beans Turmeric. Turmeric powder and garlic (Garlic Tomato Rasam) as you know, or don't? Of course, health is wealth ingredients and this dish, a totality to vegetarianism or veganism, yeppie yeh to further healthiness as well (Vegan Tom Yam Soup, Mixed Vegetable SoupVegetable Kadhi)? Kacang Buncis Kunyit (Beans Turmeric). No hassle cooking and pantry friendly ingredients (Baingan Bharta). Except, maybe, for buying the beans or all the better, if they are from your garden (Moroccan Pea Soup).

Bottle and Boar (by Jarrod & Rawlins) - SS15, Subang Jaya

Age. Yes. Age precisely. Age will, in some way or rather, believe me, define our life style. Maybe, I shouldn't speak on behalf of any of you, neither would I like to assume, for me personally, age indeed has made major massive drastic changes to my life style. Me in my fifties of course. Gone are the days to partying and clubbing especially and when friendship is a concern, maturity has set in as well. You name it. The type of friends I have met. Friends who look for you when  they are in need of favour or help, friends who reach out to you because they are in trouble and we sure have those who want your friendship in instances to money matters. The worst amongst the whole lot? The free loaders. The loaders who are not shy or who are sly. Conveniently calling you out and conveniently making you pay. Not to say they can't afford, but pretty much, god, as if money is glued to their wallet.

Cameron Highlands - Pahang (Nava K Travelling Gram) Day 2

Cameron Highlands and sightseeing? Of course. Without a doubt. Pretty much, and me enthusiastically looking forward to Cameron Highlands and yes, coming with it, parcelled and packaged together sightseeing. Sightseeing. Honest to goodness everyone, I so, so love sightseeing. No matter where I travel to (Bentong Pahang, Melaka & Langkawi) and the places I have in fact travelled to so far (Osaka Japan, Surakarta & Betong Thailand). Whether in country Malaysia bound or across the sea traveling. For me personally, travelling is a not a complete platform without sightseeing. Said it all supposedly. By 11.00am next morning, we hopping into the cab. Prior arrangement made the day earlier (Cameron Highlands Part 1), also, we agreeing to pay RM40.00 per hour.

Bubur Pulut Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice Sweet Porridge)

Bubur Pulut Hitam. Black Glutinous Rice Sweet Porridge. Ohhh yeess, and yes, and yes. My favourite sugar rushing or non-rushing dessert. In fact, for a fact, this easy to put together sweet porridge (Bubur Kacang Hijau/Green Bean Sweet Porridge) has conquered the number one spot amongst the rest of our Malaysian desserts for me personally. How do we make Bubur Pulut Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice Sweet Porridge)? Very easy. Uncomplicated. Simmer and add the few ingredients as listed below and there you have - soft tender black glutinous rice, scented by pandan/screwpine leaves (Kuih Buah Melaka & Pandan Cheesecake), sweetened by white or brown sugar or Gula Melaka/palm sugar and creaminess from coconut milk. You can if you like, add sago as well (Pumpkin Sago Dessert & Malaysian Sago Pudding) and Bubur Pulut Hitam can be a choice between, either a cold or hot sweet dessert.

Cameron Highlands - Pahang (Nava K Travelling Gram)

Cameron Highlands. Let me recall. My last trip to Cameron Highlands? Oh my goodness me mamma-mia! Back then in my teens. Like, 30 over years ago. Years and years back then. Ages ago for a fact precisely (Perak Travel). To tell you the truth, I can't even remember what I did  or where I went in Cameron Highlands. Duh! Anyway, that was then and after all these years, I returned to Cameron Highlands again. Cameron Highlands, by the way, for your information, is now a travelling show stealer (Pulau Ketam Selangor). Obviously, the travelling momentum in Cameron Highlands has picked up tremendously. I was told by my friends who have already explored Cameron Highlands that, traffic jam during public holidays, school holidays and weekends is crazily massive. Until it can halt your driving throughout this hilly, mountainous, cool and fresh weather district located in Pahang. Aside to traffic, Cameron Highlands clearly had already obtained its badge, furthermore, stamped as the escape route out of our stressful city life. Stress and city life! Tell me about it (Kuantan Pahang).

Garnier Skin Naturals New Light Complete Serum Mask

Effort equals outcome. What effort am I talking about and what outcome am I referring to as well? I am definitely talking about effort in maintaining our skin and if we can't look 10 or 5 years younger, at least we should be looking good or presentable for our age, or shouldn't we allow our clean and clear skin speak for itself (Garden of Eden, Rosa E Serum)? Outcome of course, personally I feel, when our skin is our happiness, it will by far boost up our self confidence and when self confidence is boosted, we will automatically feel everything around us is satisfying. Moreover, can we deny that we don't float on cloud nine when people praise us? In other words, anyone for the matter praising our skin by saying that our well kept skin is the notable pride (Bio Essence Golden Ratio Double Serum)?

The Deck Bar & Restaurant - Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam

I think by now, you must have figured out that I am a Kota Kemuning woman? Yes. Kota Kemuning and Nava K (Hibikii Japanese Cafe & Spicy Crab). Kota Kemuning precisely, and where my "living" and "life"roots have already been strongly planted and grounded.  To be specific, for the last 17 years. The question now is, will I uproot my roots to move elsewhere? I don't think so. I doubt. Will I even consider moving to any of those new residential areas within Kota Kemuning? No. Not at all. Why not? Because I don't have any valid reason or reasons why I should make it a point in moving to anywhere else for the matter. Look, we are already comfortably settled down where we are and we have also, mind you, put a lot of effort in maintaining and up-keeping our house. The last thing I or mutually both of want is moving to a new bigger house for impressing anyone or as a mean of showing off that, success is measured at the size and glam of our house.

Seberang Perai (Penang Mainland) Eats

Seberang Perai. Penang Mainland. Honestly everyone, as far as I have explored, not once, in fact a couple of times, not as bright and sparkly as Penang Island. Don't get me wrong please. I am in no way downgrading Seberang Perai, but comparatively or competitively to Penang Island (Attractions In Penang & Penang Food Guide), there is only so much if we are talking about sightseeing. Penang Birds Park (next door to Arulmigu Karumariamman Temple), Iskcon Sri Sri Radha Temple, Nine Emperor Gods Temple Butterworth and for me personally, nothing like the ferry ride from Perai Jetty to Penang Island (Penang Thaipusam). Always and forever. Perai ferry ride, truly our Malaysian mini water wonder world (Penang Part 1 & Penang Part 3).

Hibikii Japanese Cafe - Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam

Marriage over the years. What can be the possibilities? In fact, I won't even dare say over the years because, marriages these days? As far as I have noted. If I am not mistaken. The cracks of marriage after a show time, show off wedding or even in instances, couples been dating for like, 9 years or 10 years before settling down. Complicated matter right? I know. Of course the perfect marriages on social media. Without a doubt, a different matter altogether, but reality wise. Either marriage improvising by the marriage virtue of giving in and taking, or becoming worst or worsening. How about my marriage? Still tricky and mind boggling, Honestly everyone. Not easy. Remember, I have previously spoken about marriage food compatibility (Riz Norms Restaurant Kota Kemuning)? The food lingo marriage compatibility (Yap Chuan Bak Kut Teh Puchong)? What's the food story to this latest food review of mine? Both of us heading to the same area and my other half-half into Chakraz for his Indian food fix, whereas me walking to the like, within 2 minutes Hibikii Japanese Cafe.

Vegan Tofu Sambal

Veganism. What is veganism? Veganism (Vegan Thai Fried Rice & Vegan Pumpkin Soup), basically is, the higher leveling up to vegetarianism (Fresh Turkey Berry Curry & Malaysian Vegetarian Spaghetti). Am I a vegan? No. I am not. Will I be able to tell you why vegans don't consume not only meat, but also dairy products? To a certain extent and most probably, if I am not mistaken, due to health reasons and perhaps I should also include religionism as well. For me personally, anything goes except beef and exotic meat. What about vegan food? Actually, come to think of it, I don't mind every now and then. Nothing wrong right? Of course not. After all, food is food, and even if its vegan dish, like this Vegan Tofu (Mapo Tofu & Tofu Katsu) Sambal, trust me, we don't compromise on food deliciousness.

Garden of Eden, Rosa E Pigmentation Serum

Pigmentation. Damn. Dammit profoundly! I told you before right (Bio Essence Golden Ratio Double Serum)? Not once, but over and over again. Well, I guess (SAFI RANIA GOLD SPF25 Moisturing Day Cream)? Definitely I am not someone who will put a stop to doing something about it. Not me. I still believe that caring for our skin and skin in return happily smiling at us when we look in the mirroris the reality to our beauty. Of course, the causes to pigmentation can vary for each of us, for me personally, sweating for no apparent reason, people with darker skin tone are prone to pigmentation, and perhaps age catching as well. Plus, lets not forget about 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.
