Scott's launch Nationwide Search for Most "Momazing" Moments of all Time

-Scott's from GSK celebrates Mothers and their special moments through new "Momazing" campaign-


I am a mother of three children, and two step kids. Being a mom can be quite hard but it can be pretty rewarding, and some say the best job on the planet. You do not get a day off and it can be pretty challenging from time to time especially when the right choices are not always available or clear.
Then there are those simply astounding and surprisingly heart warming moments when your offspring does something small but pretty amazing to you. That is what is known as a 'Momazing' moment.

Momazing is that mix of pride, accomplishment, joy, relief, and the confidence and reassurance of getting it right . Every mother gets to feel that every once in a while.

Scott's is one of the top selling products from GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Sdn Bhd (GSK CH). Scott's is going to begin its search beginning from February, to find the most 'Momazing' moments through the launch of the 'Momazing' campaign which recognises and celebrates mothers and the special moments all mothers experience as moms.

Being a blogger means you are a writer, you write your own stories and share them on your blog. There will be times some company will ask you to do a write up, sometimes they pay you decently well, sometimes not, sometimes they compensate you with vouchers, or great goodie bags.

Party of the Century



 When I first learned about the Party of the Century, I was hoping desperately to get invited, and when yours truly here was one of the fortunate few who scored an invite to the Party of the Century, I was ecstatic. 


When the night of the Party of the Century arrived, I was a bundle of nerves. The invitation card insisted that the dress code was strictly the Glamorous 1920s and I so did not want to be under dressed.

How to grow your Twitter account fast

Started a new twitter account and  wondering how to get more followers fast? You really should consider Twiends.


Twiends is an amazing way to increase the amount of social users that you can connect with on a daily basis. I have been an active user of Twiends for the past few months  and I really benefited from it. From just a following of 600++ I have now grown my followers to 1000++ and counting.   I am here now to share with you how you can also benefit from using the amazing site.

I heard that you can purchase fake Twitter followers from other services, and as a social media influencer, and blogger, I must admit I was tempted by this but I did not do it once I learned about all the negative effects of bots and such. Besides , doing this probably might makes your account look big… but it could be a big waste of time and a pain to manage because it will really slow down your Twitter account and you risk your twitter account getting frozen too..

Nikon’s Ladies-only Meet Up

Nikon Malaysia organised an exclusively ladies-only affair to share the passion and love for photography


There is nothing I like better then to take photos and tell my own story from my photos be it from travel, family or even food. Yeap, I am definitely one of those annoying people who will feed the camera or the phone before I feed myself, especially if and when my surroundings and the food is lovely. Photography is all about telling your own story in the photo, if you can. Some people do not have that talent, I am not sure if I do, but I sure like to try.

About depression

I have been having one of those dreary period of days where I am feeling pretty depressed because nothing goes the way it should.



According to Wikipedia, "depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being.People with depressed mood can feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable or restless. They may lose interest in activities that were once pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details or making decisions, and may contemplate, attempt or commit suicide. Insomnia, excessive sleeping, fatigue, aches, pains, digestive problems or reduced energy may also be present."

5 of the cutest Panda Videos

The unique markings on the giant panda, makes it resemble a huge living teddy bear, made this animal into the symbol of the fight for the preservation of endangered species. 



The panda is actually a bear.  An odd looking bear, but a real bear, yeah... it's real! The panda species appeared about 12 million years ago, and the oldest known panda species,  called the Ailuropoda microta, was half the size of the current panda species. Then there was the Ailuropoda melanoleuca, which  lived 2-3 million years ago, and had the same appetite for bamboo. A supposedly more recent panda species, which roamed the earth about less than a million years ago, was bigger than the current species. Many fossil remains of the panda are associated with the fossil elephant genus Stegodon. 

How to catch Piranhas....

Even when from the moment these teeny tiny baby piranhas hatch from their microscopic eggs, they are already armed and dangerous. Baby piranhas will eat tiny crustaceans, fruits, seeds, and aquatic plants. 

Upon reaching 1.5 inches in length they start eating the fins and flesh of other fish that swim too closely to them. When they grow larger they will to venture out in groups (shoals) of about 20 fish where they use a variety of hunting strategies to kill and eat their prey. 

Actually, they don't kill their prey first, they just start eating the victim alive - that's what makes them so scary. Adult piranha is also known to eat their own babies.
