#Father's Day is around the corner


SHOP FOR YOUR HAVANA HERE: Havana Mens Friendship Bracelet - Denim Blue



My dad- is a man who is kind but also harsh. He is hot-tempered but caring. When growing up, my mum used to work really late nights a few times a week (and sometimes weekends) and so my dad would be the one to watch "F.R.I.E.N.D.S" and X-Files with me and send me to Saturday school activities, friend's gatherings and piano/ballet classes. We used to rent books every few weeks from Novel House or Walk-In bookstore (not sure why we weren't fans of libraries at the time) and rent videos and later VCDs from the nearby video store (now you can guess my age!). We loved watching action movies, thrillers, comedies, and the occasional horror movie.

My dad and I can talk about anything under the sun and he's really up-to-date when it comes to latest trends and developments. He's really artistic but unfortunately, he has not been able to use his talent for bigger things besides creating ads as he feels there is no audience for his art. He draws really well but won't be convinced to sell his sketches and work. 

He loves nature but hates the heat and so prefers the hills to the sea. He is health conscious and goes for walks around the neighbourhood. He isn't a fan of any particular sport but he knows enough about big sporting events.

Father's Day is coming up and I'm not quite sure what to get him. He is a simple man dressing up in short sleeved shirts and slacks with sneakers. He doesn't accessorize and he doesn't wear perfume. Perhaps a nice dinner and movie would be great.

Are you getting anything for your dad? It doesn't have to be for Father's Day but more like a token of appreciation for him being there for you when you need him.

Happy Father's Day to all doting and loving fathers out there!

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

NEUTROGENA®'s fashion debut celebrates the joy of healthy skin

Decorated with Mercedes-Benz Stylo's signature colour red, huge flowers, a wall lined with an assortment of single sofas and chairs for guest photo ops and a gold cage in the middle of KL Gateway's centre court, guests were ready to be enchanted by the fashion collection inspired by NEUTROGENA® HAPPY SKIN.
Prettily dressed guests were first ushered to an area where sleek Mercedes-Benz cars were displayed to be admired while they nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and ordered Red Bull served in glasses. At 7.30pm, they were then invited to go the third floor where the fashion show was to be held.





NEUTROGENA®  products were strategically placed at the entrance of the draped show area for guests to try. Beauty Consultants were ready to assist guests with any skincare concerns they may have.


An hour later, the show began once Datuk Nancy Yeoh, President & CEO of STYLO International and Chairman of MBSTYLOAFF arrived but not before Julia Teo, Associate Marketing Director of Johnson…

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
