[11.11 Promo Galore!] SGshop - Your Taobao Agent in Malaysia

It's almost the end of the year and the season of parties and presents is fast approaching. So why wait until the last minute to shop when you can order anything and everything you need online. Out of the many online sites worldwide, Taobao is super popular amongst my friends because it's super cheap! You can get good quality fashionable pieces at reasonable rates. But the only downside for a banana (chinese who cannot read or speak chinese) like me, the site is in Chinese.

ZafigoX 2018: Empowering Women Through Informed Travel

Travelling can be a powerful experience, and if you’ve ever dreamed of scaling Mount Everest or trekking through the Amazon Rainforest, you’re not the only one. Many of us are filled with wanderlust to travel the world, yet have never taken that first step. We’re held back by our responsibilities, self-doubt, and sometimes even fear. ZafigoX 2018 looks to change that, especially for women.

The much anticipated event, ZafigoX 2018 was officially announced by its founder, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir. Aimed at empowering women through informed travel, the event’s panel of inspiring globe-trotting speakers was also unveiled. Spanning three days, from 9 -11 November, the second instalment of ZafigoX returns with more talks and workshops, and for the first time, encapsulated in a standalone event to be held at The Gardens Hotel, Mid Valley City, KL.

Exploring Kuching's Nature with Hilton

Let me introduce you to where I was born - Kuching. A land rich with culture and history, Kuching is an alluring enigma to locals and tourists. The capital city of Sarawak is one of two states situated on the island of Borneo, renowned globally for its natural beauty. The fairly populous city, although modern, is uniquely diverse with interesting heritage of its indigenous people (each with its own practices, language, food, and traditions) that are not found in other parts of Malaysia.

Fondly referred to as Cat City by locals, and for good reason. Yet, the drawing factors to visit the largest city in Borneo extend far beyond its feline features; chiefly among them is its range of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Here’s why:

#ZeroWaste with Mission Foods' Foldover Your Leftover Campaign!

For a nation that loves our food and have a tendency to over order, having leftovers are quite commons. Most of the time, we end up packing to it to-go (because hey, we paid for it) but there are times when it's just wasted. Did you know that we waste around 15,000 tones daily and that 20% of that wastage are untouched leftovers that are still edible?

[Dutch Lady Breakfast Challenge] How I Start My Mornings Strong

A strong day needs a strong start. A strong start would give me the much needed boost to get through the day. At least, until the mandatory afternoon nap kicks in later. ANYWAY, let me walk you through my morning routine.

[Food Review] Indobowl Lakefield, Sg Besi

Ah Indomie. A favourite of many Malaysians. A close companion on many late nights when one is  low on cash and at the mamak. It seems fitting that Malaysia has a cafe that pays tribute to this instant noodle. The first outlet in Sungai Besi opened its doors three years ago while the newest branch in Subang SS15 was opened just last year to cater to Selangor residents and students nearby. I was recently invited to their Sungai Besi Lakefield outlet to try out their signature dishes and more. So much more.

Coffee and Chill at Cisco Cafe, Kawaguchiko

Lake Kawaguchi is known for many things - Mount Fuji, Fuji Q Highlands and the iconic Chureito Pagoda. Beautiful in the spring for its cherry blossoms, summer for its colourful flowers, autumn for the fiery leaves and winter for the powder-like snow, Kawaguchiko is a popular tourist destination as it is only a two hours bus ride or a hour's train ride from Tokyo.

Healthier Cooking for More with the new Philips Airfryer XXL

Let's face it. Fried food is bae. There's just something about the decadent crunch, mixture of oil and juiciness of the flesh that are just so sinful and irresistible. As you can tell, I am huge fan of fried food. But I am not a huge fan of the sinking feeling of guilt that usually follows after.

Now if there was only a way to get a healthier form of that delicious fried taste. Oh wait, there is and it just got bigger. Philips Malaysia recently launched the Philips Airfryer XXL (HD9630/99) armed with the all new Twin TurboStar Technology and the first to incorporate Fat Removal Technology at a larger capacity. It can easily handle a whole chicken or up to 1.4kg of fries for up to 6 portions at one go.

In a nutshell, it offers up a 91% screen-to-body ratio, 20MP+2MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and a 16MP front camera with 3D portrait lighting tech and f/2.0 aperture

To be honest, honor had me at aperture.

Decadent Orange Hot Chocolate with Fernleaf UHT Milk

I just love the last three months of the year. It's like the light at the end of the tunnel with Christmas and New Years to look forward to. And what drink goes better with the autumn-winter festive feel than a hot cup of orange chocolate. And I am not talking about the powdered version. I mean the real deal with dark chocolate, actual orange rinds and creamy milk filled with natural goodness all the way from New Zealand thanks to Fernleaf milk. Orange and chocolate goes so well hand in hand and this decadent drink doesn't take much too make.

5 Hidden Instagram-Worthy Spots in the Sydney CBD

I just got back from Sydney and much to the chagrin of my sister, found an city with so many instagrammable spots and buildings. I am bewildered at how blind I must have been on my first visit to Sydney two years ago! If my schedule wasn't packed with the wedding preparations of my best friend, I would have gone on a walking tour for Instagram all over the city center. But despite my limited time in Sydney, I managed to come across several Insta-worthy spots and locations in the heart of the CBD that can be accessed by foot or public transportation.
