Nobody really likes waiting in a doctor's or a hospital’s waiting room for ages….  It is not just annoying and boring, but it can be pretty problematic for sick people to surround themselves with even more sick people, after all, you already have a weakened immune system and a hospital or clinic’s crowded waiting room makes it easy to pick up an additional infection over the one you are having.

EXA GLOBAL – under the umbrella of digital entertainment and technology company Havson Group - is looking to 'recruit' soldiers for an immediate search and rescue mission of their fellow comrades missing in action while on an exploration to a foreign dimension, and they were hailing all new recruits to gather at the latest hyper-reality Family Entertainment Center (FEC) at SetiaWalk’s EXA Outpost, to be “transported” and save their comrades from danger at their recent launch.


I am a borderline plus sized… which means I am not quite plus sized or too huge, but not quite petite and slender as well… well, in terms of UK sizes, I wear a size 14…and living in a country like Malaysia, or rather in South East Asia, it is pretty difficult looking for affordably priced plus sized clothing, since everyone takes for granted Asian women should be petite and tiny… And so, when you step into most malls or departmental stores, you can easily find an XS, S, M, L…. sometimes if you are lucky, an XL…  and it can be frustrating…
