How to Recharge Your Batteries without Breaking the Bank.

If you’re anything like me, I relish and welcome the weekend with much fanfare after a long and hectic week. Of course, there will be the occasional invitation to catch up on the latest gossip with your girlfriends or a hike through nature with the boys. It’s up to you to accept. I usually don’t…

What I Learned From My Weekend Social Media Detox.

In this day and age, we live in a constant and consistent updatable (if there’s even such a word) lifestyle of connection and being “in-the-know”. The moment we feel as though we’re missing out on something important, we feel the pinch. Similar to what addicts feel when drugs and/or sex are out of their reach….

Tapping Into My Inner Artist.

It has been quite awhile since I last did any painting. Or reading, for that matter. It also could be a reason why I’ve slacked off in the stress prevention department. I’ve put off painting for two weeks now and as a result, I allowed the stress at work to affect me. It caused me…

Colmar Tropicale, In All Its Glory.

So I’m going to have yet another long weekend in January this month, my first for 2017 apart from the one we had for New Year’s Eve. It is actually my 30th birthday surprise weekend getaway which was long overdue because my husband was unable to secure the dates in December on my actual birth…

What Does Happiness Mean to You?

What is happiness? How does one define happiness? What is it that brings happiness to us?  Yeah. These questions have been on my mind since starting that new job. It has been a very hectic three months for me since starting my new job. I’m all stressed and stretched out on weekdays, and I fight…

#TGIF Fun Fact: October… Or Should I Say, ‘Octobear’?

Hey everyone, Aren’t you glad that the weekend is finally here? Well, for those who would only see Friday the next day, don’t fret. It will be here. And when it is, you will jump for joy and cheer! Because it means that the weekend is coming and we can all relax and have some…

Spoil Your Senses, 282 Metres Up in the Sky!

What do you do when you have friends visiting from the States? And these are not just your friends. These are the people whom you grew up with and have lost touch with ever since they left the country, never to be seen again until many years later in the unforeseeable future. These are the…

Photography in Motion.

Hello readers, Here’s a totally different post for today. Because you guys have done a wonderful job reading and keeping up with my blog these past few days. Also, we need a change of scenery. We all need a change of scenery once in awhile, don’t we? Anyway, I’m sharing a couple of photography cheat…

Food for Thought: Managing Expectations.

Weekends have always been our favourite time of the week, especially if you have a busy work week and all you want to have is some downtime. Weekends are also our favourite time of the week to sleep in and wake up only in time for lunch. Most of the time, we miss the proper lunch…

My Weekend Review #1.

Here’s a roundup of how my Saturday went: Finally did my first spider plant propagation on Saturday morning. 😎😎 I snagged a bunch of spider plant blades plus the roots from the existing pot, and secured it with potting mix. It was a back-breaking and ankle-busting chore as I had to squat most of the time…

Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.

“Five more minutes, I promise… Zzz…” That’s what we always tell ourselves when our alarm rings at 9:00am in the morning, regardless of the day. That’s what we always say to the person who has been tasked to wake us up in the morning. And then you find yourself waking up at noon. OH NO!…

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…

Tipping Point of Relaxation.

Hello Friday, welcome back! We’ve been looking for you since Monday and expecting your arrival since Wednesday. Please stay a little longer this time, okay? Because we all need a longer break. Well, depends on how you see it but this weekend can be a long weekend because Deepavali falls on this coming Tuesday, 10…

Welcome Back, Friday!

Wow. Aren’t you glad it’s Friday already? Where have you been? We have been looking for you all week since Monday! Welcome back, Friday, and you know what? Can you please stay a little longer this time? Thanks. We could certainly do with a longer weekend. Anyway… To reboot (or here’s a recap of) my…

Of Art and Coffee in Genting Highlands.

Over the weekend, my husband and I made our way up to a place called Genting Highlands with a free room registered by my mum after collecting enough Genting Rewards points through her endless trips up to their casinos. We left on Friday afternoon, checked in at 3:00pm and spent the rest of the day…

A Visit to the Vet.

Having a pet is the most wonderful thing in your life, because now you have something to share your happiness with (not so much your food since pets don’t normally eat human food) and technically, your life with too. But the problem starts when you want to go on a holiday. For those staying with…

Beat Monday Blues with Brownies.

Let’s be honest, shall we? — I didn’t have a good weekend. There, I said it. The reason why I didn’t have a good weekend was because I foolishly promised my manager that I’d get back to her on a few tasks that had been left on the back-burner for a week. I foolishly assumed…

Working on Weekends.

We’ve all suffered our pubescent years of primary and secondary school (junior and high school for others), gone through love and heartache in college, and graduated with honours and flying colours from university for just one reason — to get a job. A good job, while you’re at it, just so your job can provide…
