Plusify choices for Curvaceous women....

As I have blogged about in the previous post the importance to love yourself, and how I learn to love me, it is important to spoil yourself and of course, dress yourself as well as dressing well in many ways makes you feel even more positive and confident of yourself....


What you consider to be just a pretty dress can actually contribute to a big portion to your own self-confidence.

It could be a simple button down shirt and jeans. It could be a maxi skirt and a crop top. It could even be a hoodie and basketball shorts. It could be anything that makes you feel your best.

Live Life-lah and Love Yourself....



To be totally honest, I grew up a very insecure person. I suffered from depression and there had been countless times I thought of committing suicide. 

To be honest, I have strangled myself with a belt, and a scarf until I lost consciousness and I have also taken many different medication around the house which made me sick and puke but at some point of time, I did feel so unwanted God even did not want me....

A Trick-or-Treat time at Sungei Wang Plaza


It may have began as an ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, but nowadays Halloween has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy. Halloween has since transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes and sweet treats for children and adults.
And being an overgrown kid, I love to have fun and I always look forward celebrating each and every festive season the best I can, exposing my children along with it.

We, my youngest daughter and I were at the Sungei Wang Plaza a couple of days ago to experience a whole day of “Halloween treats” at Sungei Wang Plaza. And it was not only all about me, but there were other bloggers and members of the media there as well.. Sungei Wang Plaza has decided to make Halloween fun and unforgettable for its shoppers.

Malaysia Urban Retreat Festival - A Retreat for your Mind, Body and Soul...

Being human and living in the world today, we have to go through a lot of stress in life. Did you know that the stress affects everyone, young and old and is a completely normal reaction that all human beings will experience from time to time when faced with situations that they feel under pressure in.


You can also stress yourself out just by worrying about little things and this too can lead to stress… Therefore I  believe that it is very important that we plan a getaway every once in a while…to 
rejuvenate our mind, body…. and soul…. 

Sometimes, however it is not so easy to rejuvenate the soul when you are traveling… as like it or not, traveling can in some ways cause a different kind of stress as well… hahaha…

Jersey Jack Gelato-the best gelato in town...


Yours truly was invited to check out a gelato place recently. When I arrived, my first impression was that it was such a charming little place, the deco and ambience is very cosy with comfortable seating. It was also eye catching as the walls were made out from colourful recycled wood of fishing boats.

Tucked away in a quiet, cluttered residential street near some of the city’s most popular pubs, bars and restaurants, this place is a small al-fresco area and is just a stone’s throw from Changkat Bukit Bintang.

Lantern Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

I was half sourcing hotels for a school gathering as well as looking up and checking out new places when I happen upon the Lantern Hotel. I was immediately attracted and wanted to see more of it...


Tucked in a very convenient area, the Lantern Hotel is located smack right in middle of  the busiest part of Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur. If you are familiar with Chinatown, this little gem of a hotel is located on top of the Hong Leong bank there… and very close to where the yummiest Mou Tak Ding Lo Han Ko drinks are sold…You can immediately tell from the bright red lanterns on the ceiling welcoming you… but if you think this hotel is tacky or sleazy, you are so wrong, this place is really clean, charming and clean!!!

The Scrumptious Foodie Fest....



From lip smacking dishes to pretty tempting desserts, the Curve’s first-ever Foodie Fest was an ultimate gastronomical haven for foodies, with fusion food, pastries, ice-cold beverages and more. 

Those who were there at the Curve the previous weekend were indulged in all kinds of morsels some which were too heavenly to describe...

Let us CiUM......


There was this airline pilot based in Malaysia. He met a beautiful girl he fell in love with.  Problem was she was based in Manila. She was also a pilot and they had a romantic but long distance relationship where he would normally travel back and forth to see her. 


Now this pilot's lips would get cracked because of the dry air that happens especially when you are in the air, and which occurs also in our humid weather or during winter time and therefore he would use lip balm. He found that most lip balm are either too oily or bland and does not have a good aftertaste.

Bloggers Pets Day Out at PetsMore


 


I was there at the inaugural Pets Day Out event for media and bloggers held at the PJ SS2 PetsMore outlet yesterday. 

We were there to check out PetsMore biggest outlet and were invited to bring our pets along, however I did not think my pets , being the unsociable cats they were, were up to going for an outing, so I went on my own. We definitely had a lot of fun there and were also treated to many interesting activities such as the Pet Decoration Contest and Cage Decoration Contest.

Keep smiling with the Systema 3D Clean toothbrush


Malaysia is a nation known by its diversity but Malaysians in general are united by one thing more than anything else. Food! We love our food.        

Hot, cold, crunchy, sweet…every taste and texture imaginable, the unique mix of cultures has created one of (if not) the most diverse food choices in the world.

This mean our mouths have the toughest job in the world. Because of the many different types of food we eat on a daily basis, try imagining what our teeth has to go through. 

Bits of rendang, fried chicken or vegetable get stuck in between our teeth, or nasi lemak, sweet kuih coating our teeth and gum lines, often making our whole mouth feel like it needs a thorough scrubbing.

Worse, when you drink and munch these starchy or sugary foods, you are not just feeding yourself, but also the plaque that cause trouble in your mouth.
