    Misty Morning in Ă“bidos, Portugal

    Happy Malaysia Day! I hope you’re enjoying your one-day off đŸ˜‰ Last night the wind blew strongly and the weather was cold. So, this week I’ll take you to Ă“bidos, Portugal. In the previous week, we went to Porto. Actually, before I reached Porto, I stopped by at Ă“bidos, a classic small town with narrow cobbled streets. There’s nothing much to see there, but it was a beautiful morning that I’ll remember. That day was cold and misty, I and my friends had the privilege to enjoy Ginja – a Portuguese liqueur made from ginja berries, alcohol and sugar. Imagine drinking cherry liqueur in a cold morning! Make no mistake,…

    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 đŸ™‚ 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 đŸ™‚ 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…

    There are three main reasons why most people intrigued to visit Toraja, Indonesia: Ke’te Kesu, Londa and the funeral ceremonies. But actually, there are other wonderful things to see when you’re there! I could write a lot of blog posts about Toraja but there won’t be a lot to read as some of them are short visits.

    Khantoke Dinner vs Khao Soi, Which Northern Thai Food Do You Prefer?

    I haven’t been to Bangkok but I’ve been to the Northern parts of Thailand, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. During the trip, I had two memorable dining experience: Khantoke Dinner and Cultural Show & Khao Soi. As I thought to skip updating the blog, suddenly I was (and still) craving for Khao Soi, thus the inspiration for this week’s blog post, hehe! :p Khantoke Dinner and Cultural Show in Chiang Mai As most of us know, a trip to Thailand is incomplete without food hunting. The street food is delicious, however, don’t shy away from traditional, cultural dining experience when you visit Chiang Mai. Khantoke Dinner allows you to sample…

    Apparently, Your Brain Decides If Your Travel Plan Will Come True

    Some people often ask how I can persevere with my lifestyle for the sake of travelling. They may not realise that once the brain has decided, any travel plan will come true. Once the brain has decided, any travel plan will come trueBUT. You must make that travel plan A MUST In 2016, I ate the same food for lunch and skipped dinner for almost a year. Not something I encourage you to follow, though. In 2017, I wrote as many articles as I could in order to get a big bonus every month. Also, there were pros and cons to this. In 2018, I had the most short-planned trips…
