The Tragic Passing of My Favourite Fitness Tracker

I’m not much of a fitness freak but I do try to be on my feet more often and squeeze in some exercise while I’m at it. So far, I’ve done mostly swimming in the pool at my condo and the occasional jog around our neighbourhood football stadium. With the amount of time spent working…

So the new year has begun and how many of us actually have added fitness goals to our list of New Year resolutions? How many of us have actually stuck to our guns and started doing various physical activities to keep ourselves fit? Let’s not mock those who have begun or who are already in…

Would You Really Eat That?

A thought crossed my mind today. Malaysians actually have some of the weirdest food combinations that has ever crossed one’s palate. It’s definitely a unique craving and you kind of have to have some mental preparation for what is about to appear in front of you. Here are some of the more common weird food combinations…

Adopting a Minimalist Lifestyle.

Let me ask you a question: Would you be able to live in a home like the one above? No, really. Would you? Or will you think that your home is so threadbare that you need to fill it up with all the knick knacks that your family and friends have bought for you over…

Definitely #firstworldproblems.

The arrival of new smartphone models and the creation of new mobile phone gaming applications are things we cannot avoid.

Seven Snacks to Keep You Going.

I think it’s highly unavoidable for many of us to go through the entire day without getting up and snooping around the kitchen for something to munch on. Especially if we’re not at home and busy working elsewhere, particularly at an office. We spend most of the day seated at our desks while facing the…

Must Be Weird to be Famous.

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. Famous brands doing weird things just to see what’s it like on the other side. I’m sure you have heard of Michelin restaurant ratings and probably read the Guinness World Book of Records. But I’m not sure if either of us would eat Colgate’s kitchen entrees or wear Bic…

I’d Say, You’re Already Halfway There!

As a child, you would have learnt the names of the seven days in a week in your first English class. As you grew older, you learnt that some calendars start their week on Sundays while other calendars start on Mondays. That was then. Nowadays, the seven days of the week are constantly being referenced…

Oh, ‘APP’ solutely!

Who would have thought that Waze could help so many drivers today, to locate their destinations and avoiding as much traffic congestion as possible. Whoever came up with the idea for Waze was one helluva genius (geniuses, ‘app’ arently, because it was created by Israeli trio Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai, and Amir Shinar)!…

SEO is the Future.

There are way too many abbreviations, jargon and technical terms these days, especially in the world of social media and internet marketing. And especially since social media is a big thing and many companies have their own in-house teams or have acquired the services of a specialized agency. I feel confused just listening to people…

Hipster Joints.

My apologies for not having uploaded a blog post yesterday, as it was a public holiday in Malaysia (Awal Muharram, also known as ‘Maal Hijrah’) and I was out all day with my husband and some friends. And our outing has given me some input for a blog post today. Here’s a little tidbit about…
