My first yoga retreat with Om and Away to the beautiful and tranquil Island Yoga in Koh Yao Noi, an island nestled equidistant from Phuket and Krabi.
2019 has just begun and I have high hopes for this year. Just like many of you, I have lots of goals on my list since it’s January. I’ve learnt that it is more encouraging and optimistic to set short term goals to keep track of my progress and keep myself perked up. It serves as a constant reminder of my ultimate goal too. Small steps – like getting sufficient sleep, having positive thoughts, maintaining an active lifestyle, learning how to manage stress and anxiety. These all would help me achieve my goal of being a better version of myself. I read somewhere that the quality of one’s life is directly related to the quality of one’s thoughts, words, sleep, fitness, purpose, environment, relationships and diet. We are what we eat – and that is why I have been paying more attention on my food choices and diet of late, be it for health or beauty. I’ve been reading about skincare and collagen recently and did a little research about collagen supplements. Firmness, plumpness and …
There are a million and one things in my life that I’m feeling stuck at.
And I think it all boils down to a lack of self-awareness and confidence.
I love facials and my super thirsty skin was dying for a good hydrating treat, so I was absolutely thrilled to visit Celmonze The Signature for their innovative Aquoderm facial treatment! A little more about Celmonze before I take you along with how the customised facial was like; Celmonze The Signature has a whooping 31 outlets throughout Malaysia and has been in the beauty industry for more than 17 years. They provide different solutions for different skin types (check out their website to read more, they have 13 different types of solutions for 17 different skin types) and a trained skin technician will be there to answer any questions you have about your skin woes. The session started with a consultation with Grace, the friendly therapist. In a nutshell, we established that my skin is in a relatively healthy and good condition apart from the dullness and uneven skin tone (yes, biggest problem for me), occasional blemishes, slight sensitivity on my cheeks and generally dry skin. Grace couldn’t help but also commented on my dark …
I know what you’re thinking about – “Dude, you’re not losing hair. What are you doing at Beijing 101?” Well, those were my initial thoughts too.
Oh ain’t I soppy? I was looking through my older posts on this blog and it basically just felt like an emotional rollercoaster; even when I was the person who wrote all of those posts. I think I am trying to become a different person – not exactly sure whether I will like this new person but for some reason, I this change (or rather, growth) felt somewhat necessary. Deep down somewhere, I know I am still that hopeless, dependent as fuck, soppy, jealous, overly-sensitive and emotional psycho. But yes, I am currently working on subduing those undesirable traits. I am learning to embrace the change. It almost feels like a coming-of-age story, except I’m already starting on the third decade of my life. But we never stop learning more about ourselves, do we? I used to write shitload about how I feel, what I did, who I saw, where I went. But these days, things seems and feels the same day in day out. Not much ups and downs. A lot of things either …

My first time venturing out of Taipei to visit the beautiful Yilan County. And this beautiful place has stolen my heart without a single warning.
My current obsessions from United Nails Supply are totally to-die-for!
I envy those who can describe their feelings so accurately with words.
