    How to Keep Motivated Until the End of the Year

    I can’t wait for the end of the year. How many of you wishing for the same? I can’t wait to welcome the Ox Year in 2021, with a hope of better (hardworking) days ahead. I’m not a very superstitious person, but this year 2020 in Chinese 2+0+2+0 = 4 = death, bad luck. Surely, there are things that I feel grateful for. But we still have four and a half months until the end of the year. What could keep us motivated and carry on? I found mine, and I’m gonna share them with you in this blog post. It may or may not work for you, but hey!…

    I Hope This Makes You Feel Better

    Yesterday wasn’t one of the best days of my life, but there was a mixed feeling. At the same time, I had a lot of things to be grateful for! So, I had an idea to write this post. Hopefully it makes you feel better 🙂 Llama, Not Drama Llamas and alpacas, I love them! They’re so cuddly and stare at you with an innocent expression. This cute pencil case with a giant zipper made me smile after I failed my exam. It’s like a reminder not to sweat the small stuff or dwell on negative feelings, especially for something that you can fix. Also, when you’re surrounded by people…

    God, Why Me? Have a Break at Kenny Hills Bakers Ampang

    If you’re reading this, I hope you’re well. I didn’t update the blog last week because I had nothing in mind that I felt was worth it to share. But I do now, especially after a well-deserved break at Kenny Hills Bakers 🙂 No, this isn’t a food review post. The previous blog, which I shared my vulnerabilities, was surprisingly received a well-response. I thought nobody would care. But turned out, some of them were feeling the same! God, Why Me? ‘…in all things God works for the good of those who love him…’ Romans 8:28 Last week, a lot of things happened to me at the same time. I…

    Meditation, Travel Movies and How RMCO Changed Me

    This week’s blog post will be about my personal experience, especially how RMCO (Recovery Movement Control Order) changed me. Staying at home most of the time for a few months have changed me. I didn’t know that my new hobbies – meditation and travel movie marathon could open up a new perspectives. New RMCO Hobby #1 – Meditation and Face Mask I always use Innisfree Super Volcanic Peel Off Mask 2X twice a week to tighten my pores and get a glowing complexion. Then, one day, I felt super emo so I decided to combine it with meditation. They got along really well! As I couldn’t stand sitting for a…

    The Miracle Before Easter (and lessons from COVID-19)

    It’s been quite some time I wanted to share this with you, friends. But I waited until all are set and done. This week, I will share about the miracle and life lessons that I received during COVID-19. Do you believe in miracle? Regardless what you believe in, I feel what I experienced was more than a coincidence. It’s one of many miracles that I received throughout my life. But this time, it felt special because it happened during the pandemic. It’s totally unexpected. The Unexpected Encounter A few months ago, I started looking for a new job because I sensed it’s time to have a backup plan. The signs…

    Bajirao Mastani, an Award-winning Bollywood Movie for Lockdown Leisure

    I seldom watch Bollywood movies. But if you’re free during the lockdown, I highly recommend “Bajirao Mastani”, an award-winning Indian movie that will mesmerise you for 158 minutes. “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” was the only Indian movie that I watched in my teenage years and it left a very good impression of Indian movies on me. #90skid #shahrukhkan After that, I didn’t watch any Indian movie until the lockdown. Now that I have more free time than ever, suddenly I thought of watching something different. I remembered the trip to India that I cancelled because of the unrest in Kashmir… So, I googled for the best Bollywood movie and Bajirao…

    Earth Day, Bees and Mirabell Gardens

    Happy belated Earth Day 2020! Sorry for the late blog post, I was busy preparing for something important and not feeling well… but! I’m so happy that Google made Earth Day, which falls on 22 April, educated and FUN! Also, the Earth Day Doodle game reminds me of the beautiful Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg, Austria. Google’s Earth Day 2020 Doodle Bee Game In case you were too busy WFH yesterday and didn’t open Google at all, you’re missing going to enjoy the Bee game now that you’re free. I thought we could only play the game yesterday, but I did it again today, hehe! Basically, we’re helping a cute honeybee…
