[Not a #Foodie] #NasiLemak Bumbung, #PetalingJaya

I am not a foodie and that’s for sure. I’m selective when comes to foods. That’s because I’m not a fan of many food items. As long as the food is tastes good and worth for the money, I’m fine with it. At times, it’s a real frustration when you are ended up spending money for not-so-good food. So, I have decided to share my reviews on the foods I have tried. I don’t really go out and explore foods out there, but I can surely suggest you good foods that I have tried. So, buckle up and explore these series of posts.

***

Frankly, it’s not even a stall. It’s a food served in alley which usually started to get active after 6PM. They operate until 3PM and close shops on alternative Fridays. Expect little bits of crowds tho. I guess; most of the people in Klang Valley are already know the place and the foods.

By the way, #NasiLemak is a common Malay Malaysians food which is truly enjoyed by all Malaysians ethnic.

The plain basic nasi lemak is only RM2.50 per plates and with fried chicken is only RM5.00. This is not the traditional typed Malaysian’s styled nasi lemak. Definitely, you can expect different taste here.

Besides, nasi lemak they are also serving fried foods. I have tried few of them and I love it.

I don’t know why they named it as “Bumbung” = Roof, but it’s worth checking out.

#BreakingNews Actress #Sridevi Passed Away. What a cruel life?

I do not want to post this. But, I wanted to remember this bad day 25.2.2018 in my life.

You will never wanted to have a heart breaking news like this on early morning.

I woke up early usual than before. It’s just 0530 and strangely, I couldn’t sleep anymore. Did this strange happens because there will be a heartbreaking bad news on early morning? I don’t know how many journalists’ and editors’ sleep would have disturbed today. They are probably working on the news by now.

Life is so cruel. She has retweeted a post yesterday and today she is no more. Had to believe. Looking back on her work, she is a legendary queen. All those hard works, years of efforts and the empire of her name crashed just within a seconds?. And, it has to happen when her daughter is not within by her side?

Oh God, what you are trying to say? The reality is hitting me hard. Showing how cruel a life can be. It’s scares me out of ****

Dying is not hard. But, living thinking you’ll die one day and it could be anytime is the most scariest thing in life.

Life is not gift; living is.

Strive for excellency on every breath; not every day because you’ll will never know when your breath gonna stop before your day ends.

I can never forget you maam. Premature dead is not sad but sickening. Because of you, I hates the words called “cardiac arrest”

It just too cruel. Rest In Peace maam. Love you always. Love for #Sridevi forever and ever.

[#Tips] How to use #Hastag for #Dummies

Even though, #Hashtag already become a common feature in social medias; I believe some are still do not know how to use it properly; or the purpose of #Hashtag feature.

I do not blame you. Perhaps, the innovation of technology is too fast and you are too busy to explore it.

So, this is for you.

#Hastag is first bought into market by #Twitter and then adopted by other platforms like Instagram, Facbook, Pinterest, Google+ and other social media platforms. It become an instant hit and gained popularity. Since then, it has become unstoppable.

The main purpose of #Hastag is to ease the search. It narrows and specifies the search items. Even, you can create your own #Hastag to personalise it.

These are the samples of #Hastag being used wrongly.

  • #greatmorning#
  • #greatmorning #
  • #great morning#
  • #great#morning#
  • # great morning#

How to Use #Hastag

Be specific and use relevant #Hastag. Do go to lengthy and over creative because no one will use it such a way.

  • #greatmorningwithmydarlinginthehousebarckyard#
  • #greatmorningvibrationlover

#Hastag use should be short and simple; maximum preferable length is between 3 to 4 words. If your #Hastag has more than two words, you can capitalise the first letter to ease the reading. #Hastag will not able to differentiate the small and capital letters. So, don’t worry.

  • #instablackandwhite or #InstaBlackandWhite

How do I use #Hastag

I usually use 1 or two words in my #Hastag. Generally, I will capitalize the first letter for clear design and ease the reading.

  • #GoodMorning

Most importantly, use the relevant and medium popular #Hastag. Using the common and popular #Hastag has high competition and your post will not standout to get the attention it needs.

There are great apps that can help you to get appropriate #Hastag. I’ll be taking about this soon. So, stay tuned for my posts. To make sure you don’t miss out any of my post, follow me via google account.

[#BeautyTips] #Homemade #FacialMask

img_20180107_111130516412611.jpg

The ingredients are simple:

  1. Turmeric powder 1tbspn
  2. Cooling powder 1tbspn
  3. Honey or Coconut Oil (optional) 1tbspn

img_20180107_1114481272416508.jpg

Turmeric Powder

Turmeric powder is high in antioxidants that slow down the cell damage. It helps to reduce the inflammation and pigmentation and even out the skin tone.

I’m using pure turmeric powder imported from India. This is easily available at Brickfields.

Price within 3-4 MYR.

Cooling Powder

This Chinese style cooling powder is made out of rice flour which is used by many women on old days. Rice flour helps to soothe the skin and releases muscle stress which eventually inhibits the production of melanin in the skin.

I’m using rice clay which I bought from a Chinese shop. You can buy this at any Chinese or Indian groceries shop.

Price within 1-2 MYR.

img_20180107_111055379379609.jpg

Honey and/or Coconut Oil

Honey is anti bacterial and helps to moisture the skin. It also helps to reduce the dark marks.

Coconut oil is natural moisturiser and cleanser. It is a best remedy for a dry skin.

I’m using dark wild honey because of its high content of nutrient. You can buy this around PJ old town or Old klang areas. (*look for a portable seller or Chinese shops)

Price within 25-30 MYR per bottle.

Parachute coconut oil is easily available at Indian groceries shops.

Price within 2-3 MYR per small bottle.

 

 

img_20180107_112011451692150.jpgSteps

  1. Mix the turmeric and cooling powder in a small bowl.
  2. Pour drops of water until you get a paste. Make sure it’s not too watery. If yes, add extra turmeric or cooling powder to make a balance.
  3. Finally, add drops of honey and/or coconut oil and mix it well.

img_20180107_1110471811746145.jpgimg_20180107_111941765086953.jpg

How to Apply

Make sure you have cleaned and removed your make ups. Apply the paste slowly steps by steps unto to your wet face. Avoid putting surrounding your eyes and mouth areas. Leave it or take a nap for 15 minutes. The paste soothes the muscles and promotes sleep. Trust me, you will be feeling better after taking this 15 minutes nap. Then, wash it off. Pat your skin with towel and enjoy your revitalised skin.

Reminder: Please do not leave more than 15-20 minutes especially once it’s dried. The dried paste cracks and creates wrinkles.

Have you tested? How does it feel? Let me know in the comment. I would like to share your joy!

Inspiration

The #WHY Question ?

I think; I’m a nomad person. I couldn’t breathe if I stay at home. I just have to get out. Getting out is giving me freedom. Freedom motivates me. Motivation is inspiring me to stay passionate and do what I love to do.

Are we living the life the way we are supposed to be live? Have we ‘the human’ have changed the entire concept of life?

Who drew the life cycle? Why our community is pressing us to follow the line? Why we are not allowed to break the line?

First of all, why there is a cycle? Why are we stamped with certain name and marks if we don’t follow the rules?

How hard would it be to break the rules? Should I try it?

By the way, #HappyValentine’sDay !!!

[#BeautyTips] #Herbal and #Homemade #Remedies. Starting A New Series

I have been frequently asked what I have been using for my skin. Frankly speaking, I’m not a fan of expensive cosmetic nor do I do heavy makeup. I always wanted to look like who I am. I strongly believe heavy makeup is changing you to become someone else.

Basic necessary like compact powder, blusher, eye liner and mascara are absolutely so me. Even, I rarely use eye shadows.

I believe the flawless skin is the key to look good. And, I’m so fortunate for being gifted with one for quite long time. Thanks to my childhood and all the hardcore work on early morning. Nature had done the wonder.

I’m a sucker for homemade and herbals remedies. So, I do few routines occasionally to revive and revitalise the skin.

I thought it will be great if I can share it here. So, I’m starting this series called #BeautyTips. It’s supposed to be a weekly series, but as you know I haven’t find my post consistency. So, please bear with me.

I’m not a beauty expert nor do I trying to be one. I’m merely sharing my own routines. Hope it will serve you goodness.

Stay Tune.

#Trees Are Our #Ancestors. Learn To #Respect Them

hdr

Every creature of the nature is deserved to be respected. So do the trees.

Don’t you think they are lived decades compared to us?

They have seen more than us. They have witness our histories. They have witness our daily life. They have witnessed our happiness, sadness, celebration, fights, loneliness and etc, etc, etc…

Aren’t they having the rights to live longer to tell the stories to our grandchildren? You bet.

Every tree is deserved to be protected and cherished with utmost respect.  They are our ancestors. Treat them well. Give them the respect and protection they deserve. They are giving you the oxygen to be alive for god sake.

It is so heartbreaking to see them being chopped unnecessarily in the name of development.

One tree; one house. Let’s seed our soul in them. Let’s protect them.

I think, “WE” the new generation are losing valuable things in the name of the technology and development. AND, it sad.
