The set for Edoras, the main city of the Rohan people in Lord of the Rings was built on Mount Sunday. It’s not an easy feat climbing up this mountain and the winds were especially strong at the peak, but the scenery is definitely worth the effort.
Driving a camper van on raw gravel road for a good two to three hours is certainly exhausting and uncomfortable. Rent a small vehicle for a more comfortable ride.
Hello ladies.. Have been trying the Leaders Insolution masks recently and I am quite happy with how well they have been working for my sensitive, dehydrated skin that is also prone to acne spots (confusing skin type, I know).
My skincare routine is simple – just cleanse, moisturise and doing a nightly medical honey mask and that’s about it for now. I don’t know where I found the guts to try out a new product but I’m glad I did.
Had a really lovely staycation at Changi Cove during beebz’s birthday. Being lazy bums, we pretty much spent most of the time hanging out in our cozy room and only heading out to fill our tummies. Will totally love to do this again soon!
What we really liked about Changi Cove is the staff, hands down. Happy faces and polite greetings before we even stepped through the main door. Check-in was a breeze and we’re off to a great start to our staycay!
Our room was just perfect. Great comfy bed (it’s super comfy), great view of the nature right outside our window, cute lounge chair to chill and swing in, movie channels, high-end L’occitane toiletries and even complimentary Nespresso capsules and chocolates!
My body is what people term a classic pear, boasting a small upper torso with huge ass and thighs. Life ain’t always fair. *sigh*
I think huge ass and thighs are things I can live with, but the cellulite that comes with it almost always makes me cry. Some people are fat, but their skin is still firm and smooth. I’m not that fat, but I’ve got tons of cellulite. The dimpled appearance of the skin makes me feel really conscious about how others will look at me.
I woke up as Mcgrumpy as we had to wake up quite early and head to the Taipei Main Station to catch an express train to the scenic city of Hualien. We bought the tickets from Puyuma Express which takes about 2-3 hours from Taipei to Hualien.
In our rush, we didn’t have time to stop for breakfast… thank god for the railway bento (台铁便当) that you can buy before boarding! If you’re looking for food options, definitely check these out cause they’re surprisingly tasty!
Can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I did my double eyelid surgery via the suture method and I thought to just blog about how it has been for me, as I have received many emails from you lovely ladies considering to go through with the operation.
Did you know Oral health problems can lead to Diabetes?
*WHAT? Are you serious? How is bad teeth / breath going to give me diabetes huh?*
Yepp, my exact thoughts when I first read about it.
The Joslin-Sunstar Diabetes Education Initiative (JSDEI) was recently held in Singapore, where more than 400 medical and dental healthcare providers from around the world to exchange scientific findings on the inter-relationships between diabetes and periodontitis and possible prevention, treatment and cure of these disease burdens.
Singapore has the second-highest proportion of diabetics among developed nations. That’s scarily high on the ranking charts. *Are you worried now? Cause I am*
Don’t worry, we can always start on improving our oral health right now.
This trip was a special one. It’s the first official trip we took as a couple. As I started a new job last year, it was difficult to plan any trips together for a while. We hardly spend as much time as we’d like to so spending my days and nights for a good whole week together was just something I looked forward to in a long time.
Every day comprised of exciting moments and adventurous spontaneity as we explored the streets and sights of Taipei and Hualien. A really surreal and beautiful experience that I wish to keep in my memories. We can’t wait to visit again soon for the food, people and sights we didn’t get enough of this time round.
After checking in at our AirBnB at around 9pm, we wasted no time and embarked on our first (food) adventure.
