Contact lenses at your finger tips..

Are you one of those who have problems with your sight? There are those who are long sighted, and those who are short sighted. I am one of those who are short sighted, probably due to a whole lot of watching TV too close and reading too much. Or it could also be genetic as both my parents wear glasses.

Anyway, I do wear glasses but with my plain looks, wearing glasses just makes me more of a nerd, so being sometimes vain, and wanting to look pretty, contact lenses play a vital part in my life. 

Recently, I was introduced to Mr Lens by the Caterpillar Chapter by the Butterfly Project Malaysia. Excited, I quickly log on to the website: www.Mrlens.com.my and found quite a lot of choices and selection of various brands and types of contact lenses available

How to shop with ZALORA


Having heard a lot about Zalora online shop, I decided to check it out. You can go directly to the website or you can download the App from Playstore, as I did. 

Once you have downloaded it, you can open the App and it will show a few countries, just choose Malaysia, and then they will ask if you are shopping in English or Malay, choose your selected language. Then they  will ask if it is for a female or a male, so do the right selection.

The Definitive Answer To 20 Of Your Biggest Health Questions


Does olive oil prevent heart disease?
Short answer: Yes
The health benefits of olive oil come from the presence of polyphenols, antioxidants
that reduce the risk of heart diseases and cancers.
But to get these healthy compounds, consumers should buy good-quality, fresh "extra-virgin" olive oil, which has the highest polyphenol content. Most commercially available olive oils have
low levels of polyphenols associated with poor harvesting methods, improper storage, and heavy processing.

Being part of the Butterfly Project Bloggers, I was very fortunate to be able to get a Shizens Lip Tattoo in my Christmas Beauty Box. I was naturally excited having heard a lot about this product.

It is said that this product is from Korea and it is an exclusive product that adds a spread of moisture and supposedly relieves the formation of fine lines. It is also said to help to lighten dark pigmented lips and with frequent wear, it gradually turn my lips into natural pink or rosy tones.

Being grateful....



Learning to be grateful for the little blessings that come your way is of utmost importance. Not many people know how to do that, and if they do, many others prefer to white and gripe about what they do not have or own in this world.

That is a really sad thing as as long as you are never contented with what you have or is always comparing yourself with people who have more, you will never ever know how to count the little blessings and also never learn to be happy.

Schoolmates Reunion at Johnny Rockets Avenue K


They are always there to support you, to fight with, to play with during recess time, to share thoughts with, steal homework from or bitch about when in school. They are also there to laugh at you, laugh with you, annoy you and also be there for you whenever you needed them, They are your school mates or class mates. 

In my case, they have also been friends with me for nearly 25 years now. These girls in the picture with me are my class mates and school mates. We fought with each other, laugh at each other , annoyed each other, talked about the teachers, boys and so on... but the best of it is we have been each others pillars of support in school one way or another.

Eat Blog FoodPanda


So a couple of days ago I was having a busy day and was going out again for the evening for a Christmas party, leaving my husband and little girl at home. Hubby insisted he wanted to stay home with kiddo, so I decided to get something for their dinner. 

It won't be fair to leave them to just eat normal rice or bread, when I was out having a great time with my friends , right?

So after thinking for a bit, I decided to order via FoodPanda. i already had the app downloaded via my Android Playstore, and so I just opened the app and the page (pic as above ) popped up.

1600 Pandas in Malaysia!!!!



Yours truly was invited by fellow blogger friends to join in in welcoming 1600 pandas. When I first heard that I was wondering how was it going to be like. Were we going to have big statues around? Or was it a collection of pandas ranging from soft toys to paintings etc? 

Everyone knows how a panda look like right? They are huge, bumbling, lazy but sooooo cute. They are also very endangered. There were only 1600 pandas left in the world when French artist Paulo Grangeon created his own 1600 papier mache pandas.

Christmas menu at the Mill, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur




Christmas is a time for giving, a time for party, and this Christmas, is probably one of the few most fabulous Christmas I really enjoy. And the food.... oh my, oh my, oh my.....

This is NOT an official food review.. LOL... I know, this is one of those times when we are invited to tuck in to the irresistible and delectable buffet and not have to write about it but being me, I just cannot resist it, especially NOT after seeing all those gorgeous Christmas cakes and dishes all spread out silently screaming "EAT ME" or "TASTE ME"....

Where is this? This is of course, at one of my favourite hotels, the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, in Bukit Bintang.

Being a fan of Chinese Drama Series, this one pique my interest when I saw the sneak preview . It is currently airing on 8TV but is already halfway . I had it recorded on my PVR and am just watching the first 10 episodes and I love it loads....

The series began on the 8th of December and is airing on 8TV at 3 pm every day from Mondays to Fridays.

File:InLovewithPower.jpg

Synopsis:
Love on the Prairie or In Love with Power is set during the reign of Hong Taiji, the founder of Qing dynasty. He formed military alliances by marrying the daughters of the powerful or wealthy clans. He first married ZheZhe of Mongol Borjigit clan. Then to solidify her clan’s support, he married her niece Yu'er. However, it was Yu’er's low status half-sister, Harjol, that he favored above all. His favoritism caused a rift between the women in his harem, and since Yu'er who was so deeply in love with Hong Taiji even before he was married to her auntie felt betrayed, she poisoned her sister to make her barren. She also formed a secret alliance with his younger half-brother Dorgon who had been in love with her to push her son on the throne over his eldest son and other powerful brothers.

My husband made me a Prostitute...

Oh gosh, what a heading... it is NOT my dear HUSBAND... (or at least not up until now, and hopefully not ever...) but it is a story of many women out there.

Ok, there are so many romantic stories of husbands and wives getting married and having a family etc, and sometimes along the way, the wife quits her job and just stay at home to manage the kids.



Guess what ladies? It is in my opinion, a BIG and BAD mistake. I am not trying to burst all the honeymoon bubbles or any such thing and you may like to condemn me say I am jealous or whatever... but think about it carefully.. and you will know why.

Cost of living has risen so much over the years and even for a husband earning about RM10k a month, which I have personally witnessed, maintaining a family with that amount is just about barely enough.

IKEA....



My little girl, hubby and I popped into IKEA a couple of days ago to check out the latest furniture and well, also enjoy the IKEA food.... Like I mention before, hubby has made some plans to move somewhere else and it will be our own place, and IKEA is just about the perfect place to check out how to furnish your home the way you want , even with a very small space.

Simply Delicious meals at Simplyd




My hubby's attention was arrested at the bright and inviting deco of Simply D as we were headed for the Rasa Food Court at the Curve recently.

So we decided to have out lunch there instead 

For those like me who have not been to Simply D, Simply D is a pretty cool new express eatery serving wholesome, fuss-free foods. It is the newest branch of the Delicious group that offers  customized noodle dishes along with a wholesome menu of healthy, tasty sandwiches that are a great alternative to the usual fast food joints.

Klang Parade - Creating New Memories


   

Then and now pictures of Klang Parade (pictures via Google)

I am one of those who enjoy window shopping even when I am not really there to buy anything. It is somehow therapeutic in some ways especially when I am feeling weighed down by the daily stressors of life, work, family etc. Also not forgetting, the air conditioning inside the malls are very welcoming from our sweltering humidity. 

Klang Parade was one of the places I like to visit when I was in Klang visiting friends and relatives there. It underwent a massive makeover  and was refurbished since June 2013, introducing structural additions to the mall including two new brightly lit atriums drenched in natural sunlight during the day, new travelators and a sense of serenity

Chinatown Singapore





Chinatown is definitely one of the must-visit cultural enclaves for visitors who are visiting Singapore.

I love heading there whenever I find myself in Singapore to go in search for low priced and very affordable souvenirs for myself, my friends and family.

It is an amazing plethora of bustling, colourful mix of old and new, from family-run goldsmiths and medicine halls, to stores selling fabrics and Chinese kopi tiams or restaurants.

DISNEY JUNIOR ‘PIRATE AND PRINCESS: POWER OF DOING GOOD’ WEBSITE

Isn't it always wonderful when your child does something good for you or for the family or for his/her friends? I always love it when I see my little one doing something good for others, and even feeding the stray cats that come by the house..



Lately, she has also taken it upon herself to apply my night cream on my face for me, and even tuck me in bed when I feel tired and go to sleep earlier then her. My heart melts everytime I think of that. And so isn't it a wonder that she can wrap me around her fingers most of the time....

Child acrobats on Orchard Road




While passing by busy Orchard Road admiring the Christmas decorations, yours truly and her little girl came across a small crowd that gathered somewhere outside Wisma Atria. 

Being a kay poh chee or Miss Busybody, curiosity got the better of me and I excused myself and half pushed my way through to a small opening I could find in the crowd to be mind boggled at the sight of two little girls sinuously bending unnaturally in all directions.

Super Trees at Gardens by the Bay


My little girl and I arrived at the Gardens by the Bay via the MRT at Bayfront, so we walked past the Dragonfly lake which is hard to miss considering the huge steel sculpture of the dragonfly there. 

I am told that if you have ample time, you can also walk along the boardwalk to discover the many birds and insects that have made this area their home. 

Christmas at part of Orchard Road....

shopping in Singapore

Despite the crowd which reminds me of shopping districts of Tokyo, I always think going to Orchard Road during the Christmas season is a treat for all. I love festive seasons and it is pretty much well known that Orchard Road lights up most prettily during Christmas.

While you cannot see any snow glistening or sleigh bells ringing in sunny Singapore during Christmas,  the main shopping street of Orchard Road is decked up in it's best to create an enchanting wonderland.
