Stronger through fitness

Fitness has been a huge part of my life after the Big-C, and I can safely say I am stronger because of it. After my surgeries, not only did I lose my core strength, but my entire body was very weak because I lacked nutrients due to the colostomy bag. During the first year, walking was all I could do and Tenji helped me with that. Due to the fact I had to walk her, I was able to gain stamina. Then after my first year, I transition to jogging with her, and by the second year running. At first, I only did cardio form of exercises such as running. I realize I wasn't gaining strength or putting on weight. Then after that,...

Living life with Stage 4 breast cancer

I promised I would write about Christy who is a stage 4 breast cancer patient on my Facebook recently. One of the main reasons is how I am so in awe with her story and her optimism. Diagnosis Christy here found out she had breast cancer through a routine check in October 2016. Due to financial and emotional stress from her divorce, she felt that had a huge impact on her getting breast cancer. She couldn't accept her diagnosis at first,  but she finally did when she found out that the cancer had spread to her liver. In early 2017, she got her left breast removed along with her lymph nodes. After chemotherapy, she found out her  cancer had spread to her neck,...

Review: Mederma PM Overnight cream to reduce scarring

Some of you may have noticed because you have messaged me on this before, I have a scarring problem. My surgical wounds became keloids ! I was searching high and low for a scar removal cream but none worked. Mederma was recommended to me after my first surgery by my surgeon when hypertropic scars started forming. It's usually recommended to reduce the appearance of scars resulting from surgery(like me), injury, burns, and even acne to make them softer, smoother, and less noticeable. The ones I've tried before didn't work though possibly because I wasn't consistent enough. And then I found the first overnight cream to reduce scarring by Mederma and have decided to write a review on it for others who have...

Joey Yap Feng Shui Reading for my new home

Yes, the biggest change in my life is getting a new home! With a new home comes more responsibilities such as finances, renovation,etc. Of course, as a spiritualist, I am a person that believes in doing, thinking and practicing good deeds.

What is cancer immunotherapy?

We know that cancer is rising in Malaysia and other countries, and the treatments available. One of the available options in some countries is cancer immunotherapy, but what is it? I learnt alot about it at IEEPO 2018 in Greece with 54 countries in attendance. Little ol me represented Malaysia to be there. The layman definition is below: Basically using your own immune system to attack cancer cells, and it works better for certain types of cancer, i.e., colorectal, lung Many pharmaceutical companies who have done research in this area are embarking on awareness of cancer immunotherapy. However, there are problems such as: Biggest one is financial because cost of immunotherapy is high Access to treatment Awareness of what it is There were some...

Thomas Sabo Spring/Summer collection 2018 and Generation Charm Club

This Spring/summer 2018 season, Thomas Sabo is focusing on their sterling silver collection. It focuses on individual look and cultural diversity. On top of that, they are also reinventing their charm collection with their Generation Charm Club Collection. The Spring/Summer range extends from artistic, tropically mythical motifs through to edgy wearable hinged hoops, as new style codes of the season. Here are some designs that I like because of the colours and artistic individualism. Ta-da - the new Generation Charm collection, and you can see the edgy charms yet it exudes a high fashion look I personally liked the Tropical theme from the Sterling silver range because it has various colours, yet it can match with any piece of clothing you wear. I...

Meiz Travels : Experience in Koh Lipe

My first trip of the year was to Koh Lipe for some much needed R & R. The question that comes to mind is what to do when you are there correct? For me, all I wanted to do was swim, read a book and relax BUT that didn't happen. Why? The JOURNEY there was quite difficult as there's no direct flights, you would need to fly to Langkawi and then take a ferry from Langkawi to Koh Lipe. The thing about that is that when you arrive in Koh Lipe, there's no proper dock and you would need to transfer ALL your bags from the ferry into a 'sampan' or a longtail boat. From there, you will then need...

Thank you 2017, Hello 2018!

Everyone has been writing how they felt about 2017, but all I can say is Thank you 2017! I've learnt and grown so much in just one year and here's WHY : Health has always been my priority since the Big-C, and last year was a forefront for me. From working out twice a week, I to up the ante to four times a week consistently and even work out at least twice a week when I travel. I cannot be more thankful that I am able to do sit-ups again because I LOST ALL core strength after cancer. I am much stronger now and at my healthiest weight since I was born!  I combine weights with cardio nowadays Eating clean such...

Nutrition for my skin – Oskia London by Caliata Beauty

Our skin which is the largest organ in our body is just like any part of our body. It needs TLC which means it needs nutrients, vitamins, and supplements to restore and renew cells. Oskia London which is a bio-active nutritional skincare is now in Malaysia! Caliata is a beauty website that sources nature-inspired, effective skincare from Europe and USA cult brands and brings it here to Malaysia!! Yay! That's how I found out about Oskia London and how they manage to restore glowing skin through bio-active nutrients.

Since trying Oskia London out starting from it's...
