Papparich All day Hainan Bread Set for RM8.88; delicious yet so affordable.

How to make covered button the easiest way.

Covered button is so chic because it gives a sense of associations, a collaborations among the entire garment. But not many know that it is very easy to do and can be done by amateur too.

I happen to go to Daiso regularly whenever we are in D’pulze Mall, Cyberjaya since my eldest son likes to paw me toys and Daiso has a flat rate of RM5.60 for every items (You know, kids can be very manipulative. You need to be a better one). While waiting for him to choose, I usually will stroll down each aisles and pick one for myself too.

This is what I’ve picked that day. A covered button DIY.

So today, I would like to make a tutorial on how to make a covered button which I’ve purchased from Daiso the other day (I wish I can make a youtube video so you can easily understand on how to do it, probably need to invest on better camera).

Two important things you need to do to lose weight if you are 30 and above.

Two important things you need to do to lose weight if you are 30 and above.

The road to lose weight is a bumpy road for women age 30 and above. We did embraced our age for how beautiful we have become compared to our 20’s. The puffiness has left the building and has resurfaced our cheekbones and a more pointy nose, with an addition of fashion sense at peak (example: look at Mila Kunis below) but we still can’t win the race against time. Our metabolism has drop immensely until we can’t even eat ice cream before sleep without gaining another kilo tomorrow. Devastating! (Ini serious~~, LOL).

I have just stopped consuming Herbalife for the last 3 months and have been again struggling to replace these beautifully crafted potions with a much organic ingredients. I have nothing against Herbalife, but improvisation should be made to manage the need on top of the want (faham ke I faham sorang-sorang je ni.LOL). And definitely you don’t want to cling on certain products your entire life, right? One very important thing you should know is, the red, the green, the yellow, the many colours of whole foods are the best nutrition for our body, and what we did wrong is the enormous total of our food intake to satiate our insatiable appetite.

Well, the tricky part today is not only the calorie count. You are not going to get the right amount of nutrition that your body need if you cut too much on your calorie intake. What you need to do is to eat a little bit more than your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and find ways to improve your metabolism rate! (Haaa, gelabah tak nak hadam?).

These are the two must do things if you want to boost your metabolism level and stay cute like 15 years old even you already have a 15 years old girl.

Start building your muscle

From what I read, according to research from Harvard School of Public Health, people who lift weights put on less BELLY FAT than people who do cardio. It means lifting will help you burn calories and boost up you metabolism. This is what you need. It is not easy to start but once you’ve started you are going to be dumbbell junkie like me. (or any other kind of exercise tools junkie. You may choose.).

I started to like dumb bell exercise when I add this to my exercise routine.

Green tea every day

I know green tea is not for everybody but you should try in order to know if you like them. I personally like Japanese green tea over the Chinese. While both kinds offer similar health benefits, Japanese tea is reported to have EGCG value of 137 times greater than the Chinese green tea. The rich green colour of the Japanese green tea indicates an inhabitation of chlorophyll; which helps in normal blood clotting, wound healing, hormonal balance, deodorising and detoxifying the body and promotes digestive health.

I love to drink them with ice. Ahhhhhhh.

The best part of drinking green tea is its ability to suppress appetite and increase fat burning. unlike other fat burning agents, there are no bad side effect on the cardiovascular system.

Losing weight is a mind game. To execute, you need to remember 3 of these important tips

  1. 80% come from a good diet planning. Monitor what you eat and don’t be ashamed that you care about what you put inside you.
  2. 20% come from a regular exercise. Do a little everyday, and increase the resistance level. Not only you are going to look super fine and solid. Your body will feel light, and doing labour is a piece of cake.
  3. Drink a lot of water. If you are fancy, make infused water. I happen to love green tea and adding them to my water is just something I do everyday.

Krabi, Thailand Travel Guide for family with small kids.

I have always dream of a life without commitments or unlimited access to money, possibly one day that can be achieved. Even the need to cook everyday sounds so tiring. The escape from reality is somehow has always come to the centre stage of my mind in order to break the routines. And so last month, we got the chance to go to our neighbouring country to experience the lifestyle of Siamese.

So, for today, my post for travel guide will be about Krabi, Thailand.

krabi, 4 islands trip, aonang beach
Chicken Island, Krabi

For your information, Krabi is situated between Phang Na and Trang, in Southern Thailand. A small town with an international airport; which makes it so easy for Krabi to be recognised worldwide because of its easy access. The town itself is more or less can be similarised with our very own Port Dickson except for how brilliant the way they commercialise the littlest things about their culture. Eventhough staying at Krabi Town is cheaper compared to Aonang Beach, I would suggest you to choose Aonang Beach for its fantastic night life and nearer ingress to the islands. You can always go to the Krabi Town to buy souvenirs and suchs by using their TukTuk services or renting a bike. (Bike please!!).

My kids enjoy riding! Be sure you gas is sufficient okay!

As a modern young family, phone data is a must have. Once you’ve reached Krabi, be sure to ask around for local prepaid data and while waiting for the simcard to be changed, change your time as they have different time zone from our country. By doing this, your solat time will be in line and there will be no such thing as missing you flight back home! And kids can be occupied with cartoons from youtube since there will be so many waitings (waiting for tourist guide, waiting for elephant ride, waiting for meals) as kids can be very cranky and tired while travelling.

longtail boat
Look at his restless ‘waiting for a long tail boat’ face. I did enjoy his tantrum that day. LOL.

Food is not a problem in Krabi. Their tastebuds are various and in our case, there are so many muslims therefore halal foods are everywhere. But be alert of sidewalk food because we did experience an episode of food poisoning. Horrible!

We enjoyed hunting food in Krabi. The Mango Sticky Rice is our main prey. I mean hunting them were like a craze to us. We kept the ‘food tasting act’ until the best was found. The best one is made by one of the restaurants in front of the mosque (honestly I don’t remember which one exactly). But overall food is good. Even better when the restaurant’s owner can ‘kecek kelate’ so you can easily communicate with them of what to eat, what’s suitable for the kids and what not. To me this is important, because I don’t want to deal with ‘pedas, i don’t want to eat!’ tantrum or kids underfed symptoms.

Activities suitable for family with small kids.

1.Elephant Trekking

It is fun to ride an elephant but surely many things will talk you out from riding them. But I ride anyway. LOL. I heard one of the many Minah Sallehs there expressing her disappointment of how the trainers treat the elephants. How idealist she is. The truth is in any manner of keeping wild animals are wrong. They should be in the wild. Personally, I do think they are doing their best to sustain the existence of the elephants. These camps follow strict guidelines set by the National Livestock Department in order to keep them. The trekking lasts for 45 minutes and definitely my kids will remember that elephants do their number one like a waterfall!

My ride is a baby boy. He just never listens. LOL.

2. 4 islands day trip

island hopping, krabi,
Look at how clear the water is. So beautiful.

This activity is definitely a must do. There are many island hopping trips that you can choose from. From longtail boat to speedboat, from half day tour to until sunset tour. By looking at the energy capacity of the kids, we took the half day tour. Meals were served inside the boat. The water is crystal clear and the marine life is so beautiful. Even fantastic when my 3 years old boy went for snorkeling along side my husband. I only get to swim as my second is not fit for snorkelling. (Definitely need to bring someone to babysit next time).

Bringing small kids were hard for island hopping. Fortunately for us, the locals were so nice. They took care of our kids and played with them as they saw us struggling. We made friends along the way, a big family of Italian having 10 days vacation (all sponsored), an 80ish years old John who looks 50 (he kept complaining about his Thai wife who doesn’t like the sun; afraid her tan skin will go darker), an indian couple who told us how hot it was there to compare with India and these group of lovely Thai ladies who treats us like long time friends.

That’s us! Having fun in the sun!

 

There you go. I hope this share will help you plan your journey there. If you have any question or wanted to know how much we’ve spent for the ride, etc. Do write me email or just comment below. I would love to hear from you.

I’ve been thinking hard on what to write for my first post. Considering how emotional and romantic a crab like me is, a relationship tips would be best to compose about.

7 signs of soulmate
7 signs that you have found soulmate

picture taken from google.com

Aaah, don’t you love to see the sight of warm love displayed from this couple? Possibly once or twice in our lives, we’ve seen this sight emitted from someone we knew but never thought it is destined for us. But if it comes again next time, be sure to catch it by recognizing these soulmate’s signs.

1.Your soulmate interprets your flaws as beautiful, unique and something that he/she can forgive over and over. 

Your unique self be it physical or trait should be embraced and loved by people around you. The feeling of being accepted and loved, elevates your self-confidence and bring out the best in you. It is assumed this type of soulmate is not only good for your soul but can make you very successful in future.

2.You are comfortable with him/her. I mean really comfortable. And so does him/her.

You don’t have to pretend you are someone else. You can wear your quirky clothes, or watch your favorite youtube channel such as Dr.pimplepopper  and never be judged by him/her. Even better if he/she actually like what you are doing and join in!

3.Your soulmate will stand by you in your darkest hour.

This is phenomenal. People tend to flock around when you have everything, but what will happen when you are not? This person will pick you up, shower your bruises and cook you hearty breakfast. He/She will say it is ok, and ask you to jump higher. If you can’t see this angel coming, you are about to regret as they did not come always.

4.He/She supports your decision even how ridiculous it is.

Human thinks differently. You may find many who disagree with your opinion, whether it is wrong or right. What you need is the right person who willingly skip through all his/her dubious thinking and seek the solution for your decision together with you.

5.You don’t have to try hard to retain the relationship.

If the feelings are mutual, the effort will be equal

Ever heard of this quote before? Yes, if this soulmate is serious about you, the hardest part of the relationship is not the mutual love you are getting. You don’t have to ask him/her about you as his/her priority or having to deal with his/her “chipsmore” behaviour. He/She will be there for you even the world is collapsing!

6.Soulmates are intense. 

Imagine this relationship you have with your siblings. You argue hard with them, but at the end of the day, you still love them. The relationship you have with the soulmate will be the closest to that even sometimes more intense.

7. It is not all about SEX.

The best thing about soulmate is he/she can be your lover, you best friend and your family at the same time. Yes, sex is important in relationship, but laying around on Sunday doing nothing is similarly attractive. Even appealing since you already know he/she loves you not only for your physical appearance.
