Don’t Forget To Love Yourself

Life is not easy. Being a mum is challenging, being a Mum of two and working is even harder. And it’s been three years.

Many of us, are always busy. Busy working, busy with kids, busy living the day to day life which makes us often forget to live the moment. Don’t believe me? Ask yourself, when was the last time you went for a facial wash? When was the last time you pamper yourself with a massage, a manicure or even a good meal? When was the last time you have a true “me time” to love yourself and make your soul happy?

I didn’t know I was guilty, for not loving myself more until last week when Flora Garage Singapore contacted me saying they would love to cheer my day with a bouquet. Then comes a sudden realisation that my everyday life is all about the kids, work, even during my non-working days, it’s for the family. Nothing for myself. Seriously, I couldn’t remember when was the last time I had a facial wash, 2 years? Or maybe 3? The last time I had a nice massage should be more than 4 years or even longer. Ugh, I’m sorry, "me". All these years busy with life has gotten me to neglect "me".

So I decided to change the mood a little. I went on to Flora Garage Singapore to choose a bouquet that I like and got them to send it to me. On Friday afternoon, this came...


Ahh, it's so lovely! Totally my choice of "flower"


Looking at these pretty flower makes me so happy. Kinda feels like falling in love again. Haha. To be honest, I am not a flower person because flowers don't last but dried flowers is another story. I will definitely prefer dried flowers compared to the fresh ones. 

Flora Garage Singapore even added the preserved red roses for me to add a red touch to my wildflower bouquet. 

You know, life is tough, but it will be tougher if your soul is not happy. So start loving yourself more, treat yourself a meal, a massage or even better- a bouquet to put a smile on your face. You don’t need a reason or an occasion to do so. Thank you Flora Garage Singapore for putting one on mine, it truly makes my day!


Walking on with love,

The Best Way to Travel from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore

Are you travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore? Wonder which travel option should you take? Well, I would say take the plane and This Is Why You Should Get A Flight Ticket Now!

Malaysia and Singapore have had sort of a turbulent love-hate relationship for aeons now. From friendly banter to harsh criticisms, and from resource sharing to sporting squabbles, they’ve exchanged it all. But they’ll always be there for one another because they’re located right next to each other.

There’s also a lot of travel shenanigans happening between Malaysia and Singapore, especially from Kuala Lumpur. Taking a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore is just one of the many routes.

There are several reasons why a lot of people would want to buy a flight ticket right away and head over to Singapore after spending time in Kuala Lumpur. While Malaysia is rich in its natural heritage, culture, diversity and an absolute galore of foodies, the shopping experience gets a few fold better once you cross that border.

The general nightlife may be a close tie between the two, but Singapore does have the added advantage of it being favoured by international artists and DJ’s. Music acts from Popstars, big EDM names, and a few more Eastern icons keep the little country bumping all year long. So that’s another incentive for the traffic.


Riding Options
The distance isn’t that bad and there are several ways to get from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. Driving over is pretty common. It takes about six hours with a nice rest stop through the North-South Expressway from KL Sentral straight over to the Gardens by the Bay area. The same goes for buses, and there are some really comfortable ones that rival even aeroplanes. I think it’s one of those moments when you think why to buy a flight ticket when you can just drive there.


You could also take the train over, which would roughly set you back anywhere between eight to ten hours. It’s the most affordable and relaxing option, albeit a bit dull. People usually opt for the night train, sleeping through the ride and arriving in the morning. There are comfortable coach and carriages with sleeping decks available for the extended hours.

The best option by far would honestly be flying over. It takes a little less than an hour and the flights are considered as a daily shuttle so the rates are very much on the low end too. There are also several airlines providing back and forth flights, a lot of which are also offering their seat tickets with partners like hotel and airline booking websites such as Traveloka. These sites often would have the best available flight ticket deals to lock in their customers so that both parties benefit.

Be Careful Though

While the journey itself is said to be part of the adventure, be aware of the pro’s and con’s of each of your travel option. Making the drive direct to Singapore may be fun, but it can get a bit pricey as you start considering the petrol costs and toll booths. Don’t forget the energy and focus you need while driving. It’s usually a pretty smooth ride, but the journey can stretch to an arduous 10 to 12 hours during the peak seasons - both ways. Bus rides too. So yeah.

The train ride may be steadier, but in the event of the occasional break down, unplanned and necessary repair stops may turn an eight hour ride into an indefinite break can seriously put a dent on your travel plans.

So know your options as you make your way down from KL over to Singapore and you’re golden. By the way, here’s an interesting little trivia - Google Maps says it takes around 80 hours to get there if you were to walk.

Paradiso Garden Makeup Removing Lotion brought to you by Hawoo + Giveaway

Hi there! It's been awhile. I know I have been saying this, but life is really busy after having a child and things just get tougher when you have a BOSS BABY (I think they should get my girl to act for BOSS BABY instead).

Now, back to the topic. I have decided to cut down on review post and attending events because 24 hours a day is not enough for me which is why I have not been active in the blogosphere recently, but I still write occasionally when I come across a product that I like, or a job I feel like taking up.  

Not too long ago, Hawoo.com has sent me a product that I've heard good reviews about, and I was really excited to try.

My friends will know that I've been searching for the perfect product to remove my makeup FAST. CLEAN. FRESH. for the longest time. I've been using oil-based remover from numerous brands. Some people say water-based is better as it will not clog pores and I tried. It is just too troublesome and too slow, which is why I switched back to oil-based remover because it is much faster (for me at least), although I don't really like the oily feel on my skin.

My life changed after I tried my face with Paradiso Garden Makeup Removing Lotion. I AM NOT EXAGGERATING things here. It is really my LIFE CHANGING MAKEUP REMOVER! There are three types of removing lotion for different skin type and effect. Extra Purifying Black Rose Removing Lotion is for oily or combination skin. Hydration Plus Blue Lotus Removing Lotion is for dry or sensitive skin, and Anti-Ageing Hibiscus Syriacus Removing Lotion is recommended those who have aged skin.


This removing lotion contains rich organic plants oil. It is enriched with black rose extract and active carbon which is able to provide deep skin cleansing. It claims to dissolve stubborn cosmetics in 10 seconds, so I decided to put in on a challenge.

These are the ingredients.



I have my half face with makeup here.


Shake the bottle well before use. Pumped 2-3 pumps of the removing lotion, cleanse the face with circular motion.



You can see from the video, the pink spot I had on my cheek disappeared within a few seconds! Fantastic right? After removing everything, rinse it with clean water. It feels very refreshing and clean after the wash. It is so clean that I feel there's no need to cleanse the face with facial wash after that. However, you are encouraged to use your daily face cleanser to wash off the remaining active carbon that's left on your face.


My face looks as clean as before, or even cleaner that before. I believe my life is going to be so much easier with this removing lotion. Hence, I would like to share this joy with you. I have 3 bottles of Travel sized Paradiso Garden Makeup Removing Lotion (50ml) to give away.

Aud-Beauty | The New Realash, One Month Result

[REVIEW]

I have to say this is a long overdue post due to a few reasons. I shall not bored you with the reasons so let's go straight to the point of this post.

If you still remember, I received a box of new products from Realash few months back. It consist of a bottle of eyelash enhancer and a brow enhancer. Read it >>here<< to help you bring back some memories.

I was supposed to update on the result of the product after a month but I was so tied up with work and baby that I always forget to apply the serums daily, which affects the end results. Last month I finally able to commit myself into using the serums daily to have a fair and honest review.

First, I have to say I have a slight preference over the brow serum as I got to see a more visible result compared to Realash eyelash enhance. But, I have to say it might due to my lashes are already long and thick which is why I couldn't see obvious changes.

Now, cut the crap. Let the photos do the talking.
Before (please pardon my untrimmed brows)

After
You can see that the end of my brows in the "before" photo is rather naked (very few strands of hair). But in the "after" photo, it looks fuller! I can see new fine hair growing slow and steady! As for my lashes, to be honest, I don't see any increase in length but it is stronger, healthier and fuller. I wanted to see if the eyelash enhancer works better on people who has shorter lashes, so I let my friend who has shorter lashes to give it a try. She says she does see improvements. Her lashes are slightly longer and definitely thicker!

So I would say, the products do work as they claim but the results varies on different people. If you are looking to give it a try, do visit Realash Malaysia: https://www.facebook.com/Realash.my for more information.
