A majority of Malaysians think that “enjoying food” is what that make life worth living... Food after all plays a major role in our lives. Everyone talks about it all the time, and it is the key for social events planning, a display of love, a cause for competition, and a source of adventure. No one really thinks about the inability to enjoy food, given that eating is something that we do almost automatically from birth.

Why you must try the Dettol Deep Cleanse

Are you aware that there is a new Dettol Deep Cleanse range available.. I think it would be hard to miss as it's packaging is white and orange and if you happen to take a whift of the scent, you will agree with me that it smells so heavenly... I swear I fell in love at first scent...

However that is not all there is to it.. as parents, our children's well being is of course very important... and nothing is even more important than taking care of our family's skin health, to enhance and maintain our family's wellbeing.

Safi Shayla Shampoo and Conditioner review...

For most modern day women, beauty is a priority.. after all, let’s admit it, we live in a kinda superficial world, sad to say, where people tend to judge you for your looks… at least most of the time.. first impression counts when you meet someone for the first time.. and how you look is also important for landing a job, a project, a date, etc…. and it goes the same way for personal hygiene, from overall cleanliness, hair, etc…

Image result for cartoon flipping hair gif

We have to keep ourselves looking the best we can… and sometimes, just having to keep our hair beautiful can also be a costly affair…. A trip to the salon can be quite costly.. and well.. with the stressors of life, as well as our lifestyle, we have different hair and with that, different hair problems or issues…

Getting over my fear of needles for the sake of beauty

If you told me I would be injecting myself two days, or more ago, I would have told you you were stark raving mad… No 1, I am so terrified of needles, and I have got into countless arguments with the nurses when I was pregnant every time I had to get jabbed and I was just so super stressed when I had dengue and was subjected to blood tests…


When the doctors or nurses told me having an injection was definitely less painful then even childbirth, I retaliated and told them how did they like someone stabbing them there as childbirth was natural and cannot be helped.. childish, and not my best moments but….. hahahah, that was me, and that was how deep my fear of needles was..
