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...

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...

Yearning for the Thomas Sabo Autumn/Winter 2017 collection

Thomas Sabo recently launched their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection, and there were so many pieces I liked. This round, the jewellery featured two central themes of contemporary lifestyle which was yearning for the faraway and love of the familiar. Such romanticism is hard to come by, and that's why I am in love with their jewellery. My favourite together collection deserves to be the first picture. The latest collection features a sparkling heart and a ring engraved with ‘Together’ merge into an unified pendant Isn't it pretty? My other favourite would be the Glam & soul collection. The graphic circular designs such as the circular pendants is everlasting and allows me to wear it anywhere *winkz* I love what the Tree Of love collection stands for...

Property hunting – The Riyang Happy Garden

Ben and I have been living together for a year plus now and don’t get me wrong, we LOVE our condominium from its amenities to its location. However, when you think of starting a family, a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit isn’t such a good size. So, yes we are house hunting.  I prefer a large condo while Ben prefers a landed house, so how do we choose? Well, we’ve decided to be open to both and see how it goes. Recently, we came across a condo that could suit us. It's located in the heart of the City, and connected to major highways, which is a plus! If you are looking towards a size of 4B3b or 5B4b, this apartment...

Do your bit for charity – The Therapy First Serum by The Face Shop

The Face Shop has just relaunched their Therapy First Serum which is pretty much a miraculous product! Not only have they relaunched it, but with a good cause attached to it. You can be a beauty and support on a cause on top of that too *wink* . I'm all onboard this because the aim for the cause is to raise cancer awareness as any purchase of the bottle of The Therapy First Serum (RM148.29), RM15 will be donated to a cancer organization AND you get another The Therapy First Serum! What this means is that it's Buy ONE, get the 2nd one FREE, you will get a pouch(pic below), and part of the proceeds(RM15) goes to support a cancer...

It’s YOUR life, why take a chance?

Exactly what the title means, why would you take a chance with your life? As women, we believe in stereotypes that we are caregivers, and nurturers which make us think of others around us more than ourselves. That is the reason why the term 'Superwoman' exists because they can work full day, yet come home to care for their children, sometimes parents, cook and even clean. There have been so many times we, as females neglect ourselves from how we look to a major thing we always overlook, our HEALTH! Did you know that every day, six new cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed in Malaysia? It is also the second most common cancer amongst females in Malaysia. Many of...
