TURN ORDINARY DAYS INTO MAGICAL MOMENTS
Whenever we smell something good or bad, our attention will quickly be diverted to search out what that smell is... so everyone knows how captivating a scent can be...
Therefore if you want to attract someone of the opposite sex, you have to be able to smell really nice, else that pretty face might get overlooked especially now in our busy, highly distracted and digitized days, when more and more people are more interested and have their attention all on their smart phone or tablets...
Supplements inspired by the Al Quran and Hadiths...
Muslims will be familiar with Talbinah. Talbinah is a barley broth cooked with milk and sweetened by honey, very much more nutritious than wheat flour. Talbinah is said to be the food the Prophet Muhammad PBUH and his companions eats.
Talbinah is nutritious and filling, and it warms and soothes the stomach, helping to lessens sorrows and to regain health. It is also effective in maintaining bowel regularity.

The importance of knowing where your family members are....
Whenever I take my daughter to the mall, when she was much younger, she would so love walking up and down the aisles, examining all the toys, clothes and so on as I would look around to find something to buy for her.
But there were a couple of occasions she wandered away and these moments were those of panic... and how not to panic when there are so many sickos around in the this world, and even in Malaysia itself, who would love nothing better then to prey on young helpless kids...

Earth Hour 2016
So, how did you spend your weekend and the Earth Hour 2016???
The second-to-last and last weekend of March is the time of the Spring and Autumn equinoxes in the northern and southern hemispheres respectively.
This allows for near coincidental sunset times in both hemispheres, ensuring the greatest visual impact for a global ‘lights out’ event (that is if you are viewing from a rocket or space craft somewhere...), but well, Earth Hour which first started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007 chose that date for it's symbolic and spectacular lights out display.
This is done with a big message which is that we all want to protect the future of our planet!

HOW TO GET FAIR AND LOVELY WITHOUT EXPENSIVE GLUTATHIONE TREATMENTS
Glutathione treatment is a trending skin whitening and brightening treatment among celebrities such as Beyonce and also many East Asian women who yearn for fair radiant skin. While some say that it is an effective skin whitening and brightening treatment, it is also quite costly.
Laneige has recently reformulated their White Plus Renew Original Essence with the world’s first of its kind Cell-Water-Glow Technology which can now give us a similar effect as the Glutathione treatment minus the excessively high cost! Isn't this amazing....
With this new technology, not only are the melanin cells on our revitalised but the dead skin cells too, with both types of cells charged to enhance its ability to absorb more moisture and nutrients. Melanin cells that are charged will also be repressed of melanin production which further promotes brightening of the cells. As a result, charged up cells will produce a more translucent tone up effect with a more even skin tone.

Quick healthy meals with TC Boy Tuna....
When you are in a fix at home and need something quick to whip up, or when you are traveling on a tiny shoe string / backpacker budget, I have to tell you a can of tuna is almost life saving...
Let's start with the travel part. This is on my own experience, and I learn it from a backpacker. I am not rich. I am a struggling mother of three who was bitten by the travel bug since she was a kid, so I cannot always indulge myself during my travels in fancy hotels or fancy food as I have a very, very limited budget...

How to raise a well balanced kid..
A typical tiger parent would be someone who put a great priority on their children’s examination results, wanting them to be the best they can be. None of their children are allowed to be left behind in their studies, and those who happen to fall behind would be sent for intense concentrated classes to bring them up to speed.
The tiger parent's priority on their children’s education can be so great, that usually their kids could read fluently at the age of three or four. Sadly, most of these children's playtime will be taken away from them. What the kids are expected to do is excel in their studies, music, ballet and such. Some of these kids can not even hold a conversation nor mingle with other children their age. They were only good with books and studying.

Fear of Dentists..and how to overcome it...
Going to the dentist can be a scary thing for many people. About a quarter of the world's population are terrified of dentists one way or another, and who can blame them. When you think of dental clinics, chances are scary dental clinics from horror movies comes to mind with a weird strange man wielding some kind of pliers or drill...
Personally, I used to be terrified of dentists up to the point I rather face a gunman who can shoot me in the head because that toothache has become so unbearable then to see the dentist...and I relied a lot on pain killers... and well, since parents are usually their children's role models, some of my fear of dentist rubbed off on my daughter who also thought a visit to the dentist is just as good as a visit to some hellish and scary place, not that I blame her since her last visit to a dentist was indeed a bad memory and a very painful experience.
You see, she had to had stitches done on her gums and a cast on her teeth as she had fell hard and hit the floor face forward, and there had been a split gash on her gums and teeth were rattled badly. And well, most dental clinic are just cold, with the smell of medicine and in many ways scary...
As a result, she did not have great teeth...
