Embracing HEATINESS, & keep COOL

No doubt that I love my country a lot, but undeniably Malaysia weather is crazily HOT. The over-enthusiastic sun is killing me, I’m literally melting every single second.
image1

I am getting all heated up, and feeling very heaty. Heatiness, is not HOT. Heaty is what the Chinese call 熱氣 “re-qi “which is translated as “heatiness” which is a term widely used exclusively by Malaysian and Singaporean Chinese.

What contributes to HEATINESS?

It can be food- or weather-related. The blazing hot sun is one thing, the other will be the extremely “Heaty” yet irresistible Malaysia food! Food that is typically known as “heaty” will include fried food, food high in fat content and certain fruits such as Durian.

Food I know I shouldn’t be eating too much, but I am loving it & I just can’t stop:

Eating spicy food. Although this may be the last thing you fancy in hot weather, BUT it’s resistible. Would you say no to this bowl of extremely delicious super spicy chili pan mee or a hot plate of nasi lemak ayam goreng with a lot of sambal. Er, I won’t.
image2

image5

Durian, what do you think?
I can finish the whole thing all on my own! Hahaha.
image10

Friessss….?
Of course I am aware of how heaty it is, but it tastes really good. It’s my life.
image13

Hence, the body heat.

I live to EAT. I can’t stop eating all these (even under the hot weather);

But I hate the after effects of over-heated (getting all sorts of nonsense from constipation, mouth ulcers, and tickle in throat, nose bleed, chapped lips, to the eyes pimples). It’s torturing.

However, since young, I have never run to doctor to get all these cured.
My mom will always tell me “no worries girl, you are just too Heaty, drink more water.

So, how to cool down?

Traditionally, other than downing me with the plain tasteless water; my mom will cooked me Barley water, or the extremely bitter herbal tea (she always say the more bitter it is, the more cooling it will be, ugh).

Oh, if she didn’t cook herbal tea, she will bring me for GUILINGGAO, without sugar!
image4

While my dad, will suggest me to go for a mug of BEER (with a good pinch of salt).
Well, the iced cold beer generally regarded as cooling. But just a mug will do.
image14

Oh, bitter gourd too is very cooling!
A bowl of bitter gourd clear soup makes everything better!
image6

image7

Well, if you didn’t want to get all tipsy in the afternoon with beer, or getting all bitter with the herbal tea and bitter gourd. You can opt for the NEW MAMEE COOL TEA. (now, that makes life so much easier huh).

Cool Tea is a new Mamee Beverage that has 8 different herbal extracts – liquorice root, lotus leaf, honeysuckle and chrysanthemum flower, selfheal, grosvenor momordica fruit, mulberry leaf and mesona chinensis to help cool down the body.
image9

Cool Tea basically helps for keeping yourself cool during the hot weather and Cool Tea’s ability to combat spicy and heaty food (so now eating nasilemak, chili pan mee, fries or even durian is no longer an issue! Hooray!).
image11

image12

Always, in order to strike a cooling-heatiness balance in the diet, it’s a for sure for us, to have a glass of a cooling drink to go with a plate of heaty food!

Best of all, it’s so convenient that you can just pick it up at any 7 Eleven stores, & get all refreshed to let it run down your throat when you’re feeling the heat.
image8

Guess, this mamee COOL TEA is a “need” for all of us.
To stay cool, follow Cool Tea Facebook and Instagram page to find out more now.

Cheers to Cool Tea.

WORKAHOLIC愉快工作的5個小Tips

我是名副其實的工作狂。一天3/4的時間都在工作,不是趕策劃報告,就在趕稿。我每天睡前脑子跟万花筒似的,腦袋裡有一萬一億個東西在想。真的很辛苦,可是我很享受。不是變態,只是但妳還和角度看事情、換個方式做事,一切都會變得很美好!

1)工作肯定會遇上一些唯恐天下不亂,慣用「聽說」造謠生事,歪曲事實,無中生有的小人。不喜歡,可那是赤裸裸的现实。既然敢變不了現實,就學習感恩。感恩自己擁有的一切,這確實是科學證明能讓我們活得開心的方法。感恩有善解人意的老闆,與有能稱友的同事。

2)對「過勞醜」說NO。工作再忙,節奏在快,咱們也要優雅奮鬥,不能「走樣」。每一天都是新的開始,新的一天心情也得好好的。每個人都有各自開始美好一天的一套。我嘛,喜歡把自己打扮的好好看看,在面對工作壓力前,先給自己一個美麗的微笑,那你一天的心情也跟著靚靚噠!

3)壓力在大,也得運動,睡覺!在辦公室長期坐著,真的很難不長肉。所以嘛,運動真的是王道,不僅減肥還能減壓!我每隔幾天都抽空去游泳,甩掉肥肉與壓力。跳入泳池大瞬間,壓力好像都被沖掉了,那感覺真的很棒!
11027447_10153183288616425_6232544101343303339_n

睡眠嘛,對我們來說或許真的已成「奢侈品」,我們也稱「缺覺族」。缺覺使我們皮膚水分流失黯淡,容顏變殘老得特別快,還易胖!太恐怖了!可如果沒時間睡覺,我建議大家使用保濕護膚品,睡前加個面膜或用眼膜去浮腫(隔天眼睛不會那麼腫,上妝也容易)。若是壓力太大失眠,那泡個熱水澡喝杯牛奶吧,有助入眠。

運動加上良好睡眠,能讓你身心處在愉悅的狀態。有了精神,少了壓力,一切都易辦了!

4)旅行✈️! 那是我其中的工作動力!告訴自己要努力多攢點錢,讓自己去旅行!工作以後很難說走就走,可是妳將從中學會妥當的安排與分配時艱。

我每年都會為自己設三個旅假!旅行每回都開拓我的視野,讓我重新審視自己與尋獲新的靈感,重拾工作動力!旅行,就好比我的添油站!

三個旅假中,一個一定是與家人的旅行!除了度假,我和家人的真正相處時間真的少之又少;吃飯嘛,大家都在按電話忙著的。大概除了工作,我們真的得找出空檔享受和親愛的人在一起的時光,拋開一切顧慮,旅行去!再忙也要記得 RELAX!專家說,這樣能讓正面積極的能量流入體內喔!

有了工作動力,工作起來也比較愉快!

5)PASSION。開始新的工作前,先問問自己,這是你要的嗎、這是你的興趣所在嗎?工作幾乎可以說是一輩子的事,像我這樣,大部分的時間都在工作,我若不喜歡,我可真會崩潰!這樣的生活不可能找到快樂的平衡!我的工作每一天都有新的挑戰,與其納悶抱怨,我很開心每一天都在學習!做著自己喜歡的東西,工作不再是工作,而是一種愛好!這樣,心情自然好!

星期五咯!願大家工作愉快!❤

La Senza Bra Fit Workshop

Was scrolling through my Facebook earlier & found this post on how us girls experienced frustration in trying to find a perfect bra. & I was like, “oh my! this is exactly how difficult it is for us to find a perfect bra! I am so gonna share this!”

So, here are some of the common problems with wrong bra size:

- Bra cups too small (when the band actually fits well)
- B A C K F A T S - most of the time it’s fats that you didn’t know you have
- Ugly straps (say byebye to low/bare back dresses)
- A R M P I T F A T S (a.k.a. side boobs, ugh, so ugly)
- Always out of bigger sizes (especially for those chio bras that you like)

Processed with Moldiv

&, You will be surprised that..

“8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size”

Good news is, LaSenza is able to help out on most of the above frustrations. We need to know that selecting a bra is about more than finding the “chio-est” bra, you got to take comfort & health into account too.
image1

Last weekend, I was given the opportunity to attend the La Senza’s Exclusive Bra Fit Workshop! It is a closed-door event that was only made available to the La Senza Presige VIP member, 12 of my readers!
image2

Look at the beyond sexy bras behind me, beautiful!
They are famously sexy, infamously naughty.
image3

Together with La Senza’s South-East Asia Market Manager, Mr. Matthew Gregg.

Mr Matthew is a bra expert, his knowledge about bra is unquestionable. (He knows better than us girls, I am amazed!) It was indeed an exciting session with him, we have learned so much.
image4

La Senza Purpose.

When your bra fits perfectly, everything changes.
You will instantly feel more confident, & sexy!
image5

Have you ever experience this?
If you do, your bra obviously doesn’t fits well.

Does your bra band ride up in the back?
- Your band is probably too large. It should fits firmly across your back.

Does your bust fall sides instead of being in its central position?
- Go for something seamed. The ‘side sling’, is great for helping guide your breasts in position.

Do your bra straps causing red marks on your shoulder?
- You need to go down a band size. It’s a sign that the straps are doing too much of the work for you.

Do your strapless bra slide down unless you’re constantly adjusting them?
- You need to go down a band size.
- If you have big bust, use the transparent straps.

Do your breasts bulge over the top/side of the cup in a double bump (that deadly quadra-boobs or side boobs, erh)?
- You should probably go up a cup size

Does the underwire sits away from your chest wall (showing the underboobs)?
- This means your cups are too small
image6

Paying 100% concentration to what Mr. Matthew teach.
The right bra can make any woman look thinner, sexier, and free from aches.
image7

Shopping starts after the workshop!
All of us just couldn’t wait to get our self a perfectly-fitted bra.

Different bra has their own different styles;
& each one of them fit and flatter different figures in a unique way.
image8

My best friends (MelissaT’ng, Rachel, & #annoyingbff Adele). They loves LaSenza. They immediately joined the contest to participate in this workshop after I posted it up on my instagram. Efficient! Hahaha.
image9

My lil sister, & her BFF.
image10

The heaven of undergarments, you will be spoilt for choice!

I have heaps of bras, but it’s never enough. Just like dresses, there is no one all-purpose dress; Hence, do not expect there is a all-purpose bra.
image11

image12

I was introduced to this lady, they told me she knew best because she had the many years of experience feeling up boobs. Haha, well.

I told her I prefer, something simple, plain with less padding and comfortable.
Looking at your bust & waist size, I already have few bras in mind that will flatter your figures perfectly,” she responded with “that” grins. haha.

Before I go into fitting, she even taught me what’s the right way to put on a bra, to get it fits your breasts properly!

Putting on a Bra “The Right Way”:
– Wear on the bra straps
– Lean forward, & let your breasts fall into the cups
– Hook the bra (while leaning forward)

I was a little shy, so I kept laughing (while blushing). But her profesionalism makes me feel very comfortable; at least, I am in safe hands.
image14

It is true that, bras can make or break an outfit. The right undergarment has the power to give us spell-binding confidence, while the bad bra can spoil the most beautiful dress.

I am trying out this one from the Beyong-sexy series. & fell in love instantly.
It has a gel push-up for the most natural-looking lift & intense cleavage.

The sexy back is made to be seen.
image16

Thank you LaSenza, we are all happy girls now!
(I bought like, 11 bras.. haha, honestly, it’s enough for a year!)
image17

I am really happy & grateful that all the winners made it to the workshop!
Thank you for coming! Good to see all you there. (:
image18

I had a good time, special thanks to Rachel, & the organizing team!
I hope this post helps to let you have a better understanding about the “Right Bra”!

The Whyte Academy

Hello lovelies, I just discovered a really wacky programme online (I can’t wait to share it with you guys!) Well, before that, I proudly announce that I am now one of the alumni members of the Whyte Academy!!

Mistreated. Graduated. Now vindicated.
6

So, what is The Whyte Academy?

It is an “academy” established by the founder, Wayne Whyte – an accomplished narcissist (comparable to the likes of Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, etc.) – to help people become as good as he is. He’s been featured as a key personality in huge publications such as TYME magazine, PHORBES magazine, ENQUIRE magazine, KLEO magazine (no, not typos); he was even the first human to summit Mt Everest in a singlet. (yes, singlet!)

His secret? A winning Smile, and Darlie EXPERT WHITE.
Wayne explains it all in the Whyte Academy’s Introduction Video.

I have participated in the following programmes:

Be a Social Media Socialite – by Jessie Molarr, the Social Media Star.
This set of wacky assessment determine your social media persona.
7

“There’s only one thing that’s more important than your real persona, and that’s your online persona.”
11

1st test: INSTAGRAM USAGE AS A BEHAVIOURAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL BAROMETER

Honestly, I might take millions of selfies.
But I do not agree with spamming it all over your insta page.
2

One selfie insta posting a day is fine. No?
9

The result! What kind of an Instagrammer do people see you as?

My friends called me the INSTA-ADDICT, a socialpath, which I didn’t quite agree.
& this assessment just proved that I am “SOCIALLY BALANCED”. Take that! Haha.

And nope; this is not only a single question test – the question above is just one of the questions and I have gone through a series of them; and I am certainly a certified Socially Balanced individual hahahha!
3

2nd test – CONSERVATIVE OR LIBERAL: AN OVERVIEW OF FACEBOOK HABITS

I wonder would there be anyone who would rather announce their death. Like, seriously?
4

Well. Haha. *flipsss hair*
5

Take the test now, see if you are a social sociopath or socially cold; or you are like me, SOCIALLY BALANCED! Be ready to receive honest analyses on your social standing and receive recommendations for improvement. You won’t regret it!

I am now more confident than before on social media. I need no approval to post my shameless SELFIEEEEE! Hahahaha.
Next up, SMILE TO WIN, by Rootpinder Singh – Senior Professor.
8

1st test – TO SMILE OR NOT TO SMILE
Here are a series of social situations. Pick your response.
22

Er, someone please enlighten me on how week-old belacan + durian smells like.
12

Muahahaha.
Just so you know. This can be pretty creepy.
23

Then, the “Go Dental Bootcamp”, by Sergeant Grills , the drill sergeant.
“it is a test, designed to bend you, then break you. At the end of it, you’ll emerge thankful, feeling reborn, and most importantly, have teeth whiter than the freshest snow on the himalayas.”
14

Do it, this will certainly fix the filthy yellow grin (if you made it). Insane I know, but if you are interested you can give it a try! All the best, haha! #crazed
13

Lastly, “Extraordinary Etiquette” by Lisa Crowne, the Professor.

This assessment is to test your knowledge on how polite you are – are you a gentleperson or a peasant, when it comes to etiquette?

This is hilarious. But, I think both are the correct ways to wear a bow tie.
Hmm. What do you think?
15

Result! Middle class manners, not too bad!
But I obviously got the above one wrong. Haha. Lesson learned.
16

With that, I graduated, & officially the alumni of The Whyte Academy.
I have to say this is by far the most entertaining yet very educating programme I took.

What did I learn?
There’s no fault in SELFIE/any social posting, moderation is the key.

– No matter what, you just have to SMILE. & everything will eventually get better.
– You want to look good? You got to work God damn hard for it. Nothing comes easy yo!
– You do not wear a bowtie topless. Haha.

A big thank you to the one and only Wayne Whyte, for being who he is! Thank you for the ass-kicking academy programmes, which have taught us well on how to be a better person.

*BIG WIDE SMILE*
FullSizeRender

You got to really try this out, check out the programmes I mentioned in this post, and find out who you really are. You will definitely love The Wayne Whyte academy as much as I do! Visit www.whyte-academy.com to try the programmes out! =D

*Kindly note that the Whyte Academy is a fictional site, and the content that we are producing is supposed to be quirky and not taken seriously. So do have fun with it!

CuppaTea // The Teatox For Weight Loss

I am often known as a coffee drinker. Haven’t really developed the tea-drinking habit.
But many of my friends around me have started to appreciate TEA. & I thought, I should give it a try too.

Just not long ago, I was introduced to CuppaTea – The Teatox For Weight Loss.
It is a 14 days Teatox specially designed for weight loss.
image1

Honestly, I was initially quite skeptical towards this kind of detox tea. I was thinking if it’s just another gimmicks to attracts more customers. Still, decided to give it a try as I have been feeling very bloated & sluggish for the past 1-2 weeks, where my tummy is feeling all puffy and uncomfortable. T.T
image2

What you get:
– 14 days supply of Morningtime Detox tea bags, one tea bag every morning.
– 7 days supply of Bedtime Cleanse tea bags, one tea bag on the second night starting from Day 1.

For more information, you can go to their ‘How To Use’ page to explore what is in the tea bags and its benefits and effects.
Capture

I have been drinking for a week.

The Bedtime Cleanse produces a laxative effect to naturally cleanse and detoxify your body, approximately 8 hours after usage. I do feel discomfort in my tummy, & was literally running up and down the toilets for the first 2 satchels (which i think it’s good). Later on, it got better, & I really feel healthier. It sure feel good to continually discover the benefits of tea.

Not too sure about the weight loss.
However, it has definitely flatten my bloated tummy. Yay!
image4

Another good thing I like about Cuppatea is that they believes that weight loss should not involve diet or starvation. Beauty and weight loss could be achieved by living a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

You can check out their Eating Healthy Plan to start a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
A variety of selection has been put together and they mainly consist of fruits, vegetables and fish.

Other benefits of Teatox:

Transformation of energy to burn calories
Improve skin health
Improve sleep quality
Purification detox

His Birthday ’15 l p.s. I Love You

So, it’s Jordan’s birthday.

He’s a guy who treasures friendship a lot. Lets just say instead of celebrating his birthday, it’s more like celebrating the friendship on his birthday. & I must attribute the success of this birthday dinner to all our friends. I know this wouldn’t happen without any of you.
a (1)

My little sister, & Calvin.
a (2)

MK, & her boy Terry.
a (4)

His bros. Thank you so much, all of you.
For being there for us, all the time.

It’s indeed a blessing to have all of you in our life.
a (5)

The Lim’s sister.

We don’t always get to see them, but they have always been there.
& that spells F-R-I-E-N-D-S-H-I-P.
a (6)

So yea, I sure have been wrecking my brain on where to dine on his birthday. After a lot of research, I decided to go to The Soprano’s – Italian-German Restaurant @ Newcom Building, Old Klang Road.

When Jordan saw “Grimbergen” while flipping through the menu, he was like.. “Dear, dear, they have grimbergen!!” Followed by a big wide smile. (chose a German’s retaurant in purpose, because I know that’ll put an irresistible smile on his face, & that’s my ultimate goal; So long he is happy.)

It is his favorite beer.
This is also the beer that got his started to have the asian flush.
a (7)

Half moon pizza/calzone.
I couldn’t remember the name of this.

One half of this pizza was a simple Margherita with tomato sauce & mozzarella cheese.
a (8)

The other half was folded over and stuffed with a lot of cheese, ham, ricotta, & basil. It’s such a clever pizza combination. Extremely savory & yummy.
a (9)

To be honest, it was their kitchen-made fresh pasta that first attracted me.
We ordered Carbonara. The spaghetti is very tender, while the sauce is rich & satisfying!

Simply so good!
a (10)

The spaghetti in bag. Linguine al Cartoccio – pasta with mixed seafood (mussels, scallops, prawns, plus fish, calamari & clams), sauteed again in a cherry tomato sauce.

When the bag is opened on the table, the hot steam immediately poured out.
b (3)

I would say this is the best I had that night. It looks extremely good, & the taste too didn’t fall short in term of quality. The combination of the sweetness & freshness of the seafood, and the richness of tomato sauce gave it a great depht of flavor. I was astonished at the flavor.
b (2)

Spectacular and delicious, I would definitely be back for this.
b (5)

Pizza Alla Bismark, pizza topped with a raw egg, which after cooking it becomes a sunny side up in the middle of your pizza. The runny yolk mixed in with the ham and cheese was a superb combination.
a (11)

Look at the cheese yo!
a (12)

Char-grilled lamb chops with black pepper sauce, served with mashed potatoes.
I don’t eat lamb, couldn’t comment on this. But they say, it’s good.
a (13)

Well, it does looks good.
a (14)

Baby Rippen, baby pork ribs flooded with a sweet bbq-maple glaze, alongside pan-fried potatoes, red cabbage and coleslaw. For this, nothing amazingly good to shout about. It is very ordinary.
b (4)

The German Pork Knuckle. It is humongous, and every surface was covered in crunchy crackling. It isn’t one of the best I had. But it was not too bad, crispy skin, & tender meat. Pretty decent.
a (15)

So, this is the BIG-WIDE-SMILE. haha.
My wish for you on your birthday is that you are, and will always be, happy and healthy!
b (1)

The birthday boy, & his SQUIDWARD birthday cake.

Happy Birthday, to my soul mate, my partner and my most trusted friend.
I’m glad you are a part of my life. With each year I’ll love you more.
b (6)

Friends that make effort to be there on your big day;
Remember that you are loved and appreciated by all of us, always.
b (7)

Handmade this cake specially for him together with the little sister, because we thought he looks a lot like squidward. His nose, especially. Hehehe.
b (8)

Your best years are still ahead of you;
and, I promise that I will definitely be there for every ups & downs and in between.
b (9)

I am always thankful for you, to always there for me whenever I need a shoulder to lean on.
b (10)

I am brought up in a family, where my dad and mom have never missed any of our birthday. For the past twenty over years, my parents have been putting in countless effort every year to celebrate our birthday, to remind us on how much we’ve grown. & us siblings, we can’t be anymore grateful.

Hence, I always think birthdays are worth celebrating. It is a day where we show & receive extra loves, doing more than what we usually do to celebrate the existence of an individual who meant so much to us. As we grown older, the busy schedule has completely took over us. But on birthday, we will need to squeeze out time & go extra miles to do something special for the one you love. (hello, it’s only once a year!)
b (11)

I chose to work on handmade cards every time, as it is something worth keeping.
I still keep the birthday card mom gave me when I was 7, & it meant so much to me now as I grow older.
b (12)

Birthday, to me, it’s about Gratitude. It is the day, we celebrate & acknowledge the existence of the person whom we love in our life, & for everything they’ve done for us.

How about you?
What does birthday mean to you?
