Honeymoon : Things to do at Niseko Hokkaido

I always write a post about my travels after coming back, and what's not too write about my latest one which was my honeymoon? It was perfect to say the least. Many of you are probably wondering why choose to go Niseko which is a small town for your honeymoon? For me, it's because I wanted to go skiing, and I heard that the snow there is perfect for that! Besides it being a small town, with not much to do, just doing these few things can occupy your time. Enjoy the snow and take a walk       For us, that was one of the most important things coming from Malaysia. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around our resort area, or just in the...

Healthy diet for cancer patients and survivors

A healthy diet is something I preach every single day to everyone around me ( I apologize if I nag sometimes), but YOU are what YOU eat! Of course, it got me thinking along the lines of sharing it with the other young cancer survivors and patients as we have a whole life ahead of us, and we have to prevent a relapse from happeming. Plus, learning how to cook our own meals means that we know exactly what we are putting in our mouths. That's exactly what happened, NCSM along with Panasonic Malaysia organized a cooking class with a healthy 3 course meal for our young cancer patients and survivors support group. They could bring their caretakers along to learn as...

Thomas Sabo Spring Summer 2017 Collection

It's a new year which means new beginnings and new jewellery of course! This year, Thomas Sabo brought something fresh, exciting and cultural to the table with strong and vibrant colours. What am I talking about? Their new Africa range where metallic look meets warm, earthy tones. The pendants, earrings, necklaces and rings from the Africa range have a strong graphic flair as a result of their innovative layering technique.     The Africa Silver and Gold collection and that's where you can see the melding of metallic and warm tones Thomas Sabo Sprimg Summer 2017 had their range of Rebel at Heart for males and females which infused cultural elements such as spearheads, feathers, and my favourite dream catcher pendants Rebel at Heart for the...

Challenges faced starting a Youth support group for cancer patients and survivors in Malaysia

Many of you who have been following my social media feed know about my passion to raise cancer awareness and I've been doing it through the National Cancer society of Malaysia. Recently, I've started a youth support group for cancer patients, and survivors from the age of 15 to 35 since the third quarter of 2016. One of the main reasons I wanted to start it was because while I was experiencing cancer, I felt very alone in the journey while wearing a colostomy bag and wanted someone in my age group I could speak to. However, I couldn't find anyone as most of the people wearing a colostomy bag were mostly 60 and above. That was when google became my best...

Improving our skin through traditional herbs – Yehwadam

Happy Chinese New Year to all celebrating! Hope all of you had a good break and tons of festive celebration and food. As for me, I have been stuffing myself silly, and giving out the red packets ( ang pow) for the first time in my life as I am a newlywed :) During this time, I have also been experimenting a little with my some traditional beauty products which consists of three main ingredients - herbs, plants, and flowers (Yewahdam). I've always wondered how the Korean women have such smooth and fair skin, and even started applying masks three times a week which did improve my skin tone and texture. However, I am STILL trying to achieve that dewy, vibrant...

The journey to getting my PhD

I have been wanting to write this post for the longest time! Like when I say long, I mean it because it has been 6 years since I've gotten my masters. In the United States, it's normal for most people to take a LONG time to get their PhD, some I know take 10 years and I've heard of some taking 15 years or more. The graduate program in the United States is a little different as usually only a handful(less than 10) will get accepted into a program, and they most often get full funding through being a Teaching assistant or research. Thus, graduation depends partly on courses, and tons of research which means your professor has to approve...
