Where to in Lombok

Image
Happy New Year everyone.

Instead of doing a reflection or new year's resolution, I decided to do something different this year. People are asking me about my trip to Lombok last October and I thought it would be nice to share here in my blog together with the itinerary. This is a rather different trip as it's a trip with the Instagrammers which means the main purpose of this trip is taking lots of photos.


I must say that this is a trip out of my comfort zone as an introvert - travelling with friends I'm not too close with that involves staying overnight (not just for a night but few). Yes it's not the first time I traveled with them but the previous trips I have my sister with me. So here goes an 'adventurous' trip for me...  
John (IG: @thrumyiphone) picked us to KLIA2 in the morning. We carpooled and parked at the airport as the cost is cheaper after we divide into 3. Our parking cost came up to RM150 for 4days, 3 nights.
DAY 1 – BEACHES & MERESE HILL

Himalaya Shampoo Review

Image
I went on a business trip to India last year. Guess what I did. You will never guess it right...


I got my Indian colleague to help me buy Himalaya shampoos. I kid you not as it's almost RM10 cheaper over there than in Malaysia for the small bottle. Why is it cheaper in India? That's because India is the country of origin for Himalaya.

Why didn't I go buy it myself? Because I got no time lor... I was stuck in meetings and by the time we finished dinner, it was close to 9pm and as a solo female traveler, I don't think it's safe for me to go out so late.


So why Himalaya?

My sister and I both have hair fall problem. She is now a 100% Himalaya user as it has proven result for her. Her hair fall condition has improved tremendously.


Whereas for me, I'm still exploring different shampoos maybe because I'm still blogging and open to explore different products. Most importantly I have lesser brand loyalty. Or maybe you should say that I'm loyal to a few brands wit…

My skin recovery journey with Eau Thermale Avène

Image
For someone with sensitive skin, I consider myself lucky as I don’t have pimple/acne issues. So when I had pimple outbreak back in December, I thought that is was just because of PMS or age is catching up. I was completely wrong when I started spotting red patches on my face. Went to the doctor and it was identified as an allergic reaction (not sure to what) and had a steroid jab. Immediately everything subsided except for 1 pimple on my forehead (right smack in between my brows). I usually don’t do much when I had pimples as they go away on their own but this round, I was completely wrong…


It continues growing to a huge one and this photo was taken  when I was still ignorance of the ‘pimple’
I went to the doctor and he said that I had a bacterial infection most likely the ‘staph infections’ and it was not a pimple. He said that it could be due to the previous allergic reaction and the bacteria had infected one of the rashes. He helped to remove the pus which is so thick and icky that…

Hacksaw Ridge & Split

Image
It's almost end of February. How many movies have you watch this year? Me, quite a number but I must say that so far the movie that is worthwhile watching are Split & Hacksaw Ridge.

Split

The synopsis of Split itself is interesting. It's a story of Kevin who has 23 split personalities and another soon to be released.


I've never notice the actor, James McAvoy before and I must admit that he's a really good actor. He is able to bring out the different characters through his expressions, body languages and his speech. It's so distinguishable and one can easily tell who he is at every moment.

Even though, there's only 5 actors/actresses in this movie, there's never a dull moment.

Rating: 5/7

Hacksaw Ridge

I was skeptical when I watched the trailer. I thought it's gonna be another slow movie with lots of conversation. The beginning of the movie was relatively slow but the moment the war starts... that's when I can't take my eyes off the screen.
