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.

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.

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.

Mount Merapi Jeep Tour - Jogyakarta, Indonesia (From Nava K To You)
Adventurous exciting one hack of a hack Yogyakarta jeep sightseeing tour. Loved it to every bit of its core until its still memorable till this day as I pitch my this travelling gram.

Trust me, you won’t regret because each and every moment you ponder back on your Jogyakarta travel tripping, I can assure you that Mount Merapi Jeep Tour will pop up on your mind. Utterly, my one of the best among the rest of my treasured lifetime experience. Wee hours conquered and broken in Borobudur Temple, followed by other eye catching sightseeing segments (Jogyakarta Day 2, Borobudur & Yogyakarta Day 1), subsequently, Mount Merapi Jeep Tour wild card pulled out from the rest of the itinerary cards the moment we arrived at the not really a big open space where we hopped into the jeep. Three to a jeep for kick starting our one and a half hours Mount Merapi Jeep Tour.

Thaipusam Batu Caves 2018 - Fulfilling My Vows
I, I sincerely, maybe not always, sometimes, I can't put two and two, or even ten to ten together on why we Hindus are still blindly following or holding on to our religious beliefs, bench-marked and set by our forefathers, our foremothers too were no better (more at Mozer's Subang Parade). As much as I have tried, I for once can’t understand neither comprehend why we are not applying logic and reasoning to those beliefs. Look, in no way am I questioning Hinduism. Better for me to make myself clear before I am attacked by Gang 45 or whichever latest reigning gang. Lets take the recent Sun Eclipse as an example. Many of us can, I reckon, scientifically or technically pin the reasons, but when it comes to reasoning on our staunch Sun Eclipse Hinduism beliefs, all we are good at is forwarding videos by our religious maha gurus. Aplenty of gurus these days mind you. The known, the upcoming and the ones trying to make a name, who keep reminding us why we shouldn’t pray, why we shouldn’t eat and what else we shouldn’t do during the hours of eclipse.

Botaneco Garden Trio Oil Body Lotion (Whitening) 400ml
For all the sulking and literally regretting why I came over to Sunway Pyramid (Ten Years Sunway Pyramid), did I return home immediately? Honestly, so close I was, but guess where I ended? Can you guess? Nevermind if you can't. I'll just spill it out. The hidden beauty queen in me pushed and wrestled me into Guardian Pharmacy. I gave in. I simply couldn’t resist this akin beauty school or university beauty stores and pharmacies (Clinelle Caviar Gold Mask & Artdeco Lip Brillance). What you want me to do? Beauty product temptation is one of the worst enemies within me (Watsons Blood Orange Shower Gel). Even at my age of 52. Is it something I should be proud of? Of course. Why not? Sky is definitely not the limit for beauty, consequently, no matter whatever age we are, we should bang crash the glass ceiling for beauty conquering.

Watsons Blood Orange Shower Gel
Body beautiful! Work that body of yours please. All of you please. Male and female please. Wanna know why? Because keeping fit is undeniably is the major attraction on social media. And ladies, can you for once stop lying to yourself that you don’t envy or wish for a slim fit body, and you men, I think you might as well stop pretending that you don’t body lust body beautiful women, or even men (ahem!). Having said that, in any case or all your body pillow cases, the reality bullet to body beautiful is not as simple as we perceive or yearn for. We Malaysians, tell me about it, we just so love food. Food is all we think of all the time, even funerals these days are a food galore (Restoran Meng Kee Old Klang Road). Food indeed is the biggest temptation. I admit I can be a piggy pig. I love eating. So, I can pretty much understand why keeping our weight is not as simple as we preach? Unless of course for those who eat, as well as work the body of theirs.

Kyoto (Japan) - Arashiyama
After two winters trip-travelling, I thought I had enough. No more winter holiday for me. Honestly, I can’t stand-sit-walk winter at all. Definitely not for someone like me who winter shiver and shake till my bones, until almost every part of my body is frozen numbed. Literally till down “there” degree cold. Down where? Down there. That my akin KGB classified part I will never reveal to the virtual world. As it is, believe me, when it rains, I switch off all the fans, can you imagine me-my winter time? Layers upon layers with or without stitches, yet I tremble. Therefore, when another all paid winter holiday was thrown at my feet (Hilton Niseko Village, Hokkaido), to tell you the truth, I was unsure. To go or not to go? Dilemma. Should I? A yes would mean I must brave winter shivering, on the other hand, if I reject, it will be such a waste for not capping another feather on my world globe-trotting gram (Seoul Korea). Eventually, what the hell I told myself. Hack aside winter, I will deal with it there and then, moreover, since my travelling legs were massively itching (Kerala India), I tagged alongside my other half-half and some known, others unknown 25 people for this back again to Japan wanderlust (Sapporo/Hokkaido). Kyoto and Osaka (6 Days 5 Nights).

Casa del Rio Melaka
Been on my mind. Undeniably. Casa del Rio has already been sashed on my in-country-bound travel pail list. Maybe, let's say for the last 5 years or so, most probably because I have read, simultaneously picture awed Casa del Rio in the virtual world. Great reviews, spectacular pictures, utterly, I simply wanted to experience at least, one night will do in Casa del Rio. Nevertheless, due to distance, two hours drive to Melaka, and believe me, money does matter for Casa Del Rio, quite exclusively priced, I ditch it aside. Then again, you never know. Like they say, patience does pay, potentially, Casa del Rio still, stood still in my bold, profound thoughts.

Seoul - (Korea Day 7 & 8)
I made sure I fueled energized my tummy with lotsa food next morning. I had to. Remember, I skipped dinner the previous night, moreover, my last meal was at 2.00pm (Pyeongchang/Yongjin)?Right. Actually, I could have, if I wanted to, call for room service, then again, what for? Korean food is already up my throat. Enough. Thankfully, instead of the usual hotel buffet, we had breakfast in one of the unknown restaurants. Self service, comparatively an appetizing meal, pumpkin porridge and spinach porridge, eaten alongside Kimchi soup and condiments. But, eating in the messy dining area, after the big groups of tourists have left, simultaneously, while the staff were massively sulking, as if earthquake is gonna strike soon, didn't go down well with us. Did we have a choice? I guess not. I of course was irritated. I still ate because my hunger throne was my only concern.

Melaka - Jonker Walk (Part 3)
Inconclusive. Our walking mission from one corner of Jonker Walk to the other for another overnight stay (Melaka Jonker Walk Part 2) didn't get us anywhere. Unfortunately. We did in fact, viewed quite a number of home stays, some of it highly recommended in online travelling platforms (Melaka Jonker Walk Part 1 & Portuguese Settlement). However, despite almost two hours of walking, at the same time popping in and our of the home stays, we concluded that its such a waste to our time. All we ended up with was not only sweat dripping, our legs too almost ripped, fell apart. Still, mission was not halted, who knows we may discover a home stay we will be pleased with, at this juncture, to wind down our momentum and for a cool burst down our dry throat and tongue, we unanimously we agreed for Melaka Cendol and Melaka Ice Kacang in Jonker 88. Absolutely. Melaka dessert game on.

Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Flawless Face Lotion
Time just flew by. It did. In the air I have been breathing. Polluted air, indeed, environment is already disastered, thanks to my educated, rich and famed neighbours for walking their dogs on my outside herb garden, also, for allowing their cats to poo in my compound and for throwing rubbish anywhere they like, at their own whims and fancies. So called high end neighborhood but resided by low mentality people, I actually should be grateful I am alive despite breathing polluted air. Maybe, its still tolerable, for the time being, compared to trying my utter best in accepting the fact that four years had passed by at the glimpse of my eyes since I gave up my full time job. Then again, if I didn't let go of my career I was absolutely passionate about, can you imagine what would have been the outcome? Polluted air, coupled with working at work, working from home,working during weekends, literally work ruling and ruining my health? Actually, come to think of it, I should count my blessings. I had a choice to hack aside my job instead of being among those whose can't. Those who work because they want to step and kill each other for promotion, those who work to support their high and might lifestyle or those who have to work for family commitments. Thank god, I am spared.

Pyeonchang - (Mount Sorak/Jeongdongjin/Daegwallyeong) - Korea Day 5
Tour guides can make or break your holiday. They sure can. They can either make your travel-gram memorable or ruin it all. But, for those of you who opt for traveling by your own back bone, you don’t have to give a damn on towering guides. Really, you don’t have to. Women like me on the other hand, I know I have a choice, whether I like it all in a tour or not, that’s beside the point. I still prefer tour travelling. Call me an orthodox traveler if you want, I am least bothered, a safe bet for me is an all planned and all paid for tour. Basically, everything is cared for, and mind you, I am a solo tour traveler. The only thing, that too not a major thing, is "sleeping alone" (ahem!). Actually, come to think of it, I can sleep with someone else, let's name it same-sex or different sex "tour travel", that by the way is not why I travel alone. My fear of sleeping alone is mainly because I am not a spooky friendly person, albeit I am on my own for days when my other half-half travels for work.

Melaka - Jonker Walk (Part 1)
Not many friends can be your great, maybe not even accommodating travel companions. Why go so far, sometimes, even our love broadest band width can also be tested when we travel together. I personally know of courting couples who broke up after their first love travel because something snapped somewhere. Anyway, nothing is shocking anymore. Love is fragile, relationship is equally a turmoil and travelling with family members is the other to tolerating all sorts of bizarre characters, speak about money which is never sunny, if not for all, but for some who prefer to travel at our expense. Tell me all about it please? That’s why, remember I told you why I am standing tall with my principle of travelling alone (Travelling Solo When You Are Married).

Jeju Island (Part 2) - Korea (Day 3)
No two ways about it. Unquestionably, travelling in a tour requires discipline. Yes please. There is no such a thing as you wish in a clearly listed tour. Obviously, you can’t follow your own travelling heart by wondering as you please. Instead, it is about abiding to the unspoken travelling rules. Otherwise, you will be billed as a nuisance by the tour guide and tour buddies. So sorry everyone, if you can’t pay attention to the tour guide on safety rules and time limit, you better ditch the idea of tour travelling (Sapporo/Hokkaido). I know better. I can strongly vouch because experiences speaks louder than words. In Jeju Island, it had to be the same agenda in the morning. Waking up by 7.00am, sometimes even earlier, showering of course is your choice, followed by breakfast and most to most by 9pm, sometimes you have to pack if we are not returning to the same hotel. Also, do try to empty your bowels instead of restlessly interrupting while on the way for sightseeing (Istanbul Turkey, Pretoria South Africa & Colombo Sri Lanka).
