Ads Everywhere

The insurance business here is huge. I've been seeing all kinds of insurance advertising on the bus and in the newspapers. But it could also be due to the fact that I have to take public transport nowadays and just can't help noticing these. Funny how much more you see when you're on the bus as opposed to driving!

Off for a Holiday

We're finally going on a holiday this year! Yippee! On a whim, I decided to book a trip to Mauritius in May as my friend is getting married there. I haven't seen her in close to 10 years and we actually used to be neighbours in our university residences. She's Mauritian but has moved to the US and is getting married to an American. This is the very first time I've attended a wedding overseas and its incredibly exciting!

Teenage Battle Scars

I was once asked by an innocent little girl why my face had scars and pores. It is, unfortunately, a legacy left from my acne days when I previously had some really bad and huge pimples. Luckily these has all cleared now. Someday that little girl may understand what are blackheads when she finally goes through her teenage years of bad skin and baby fat!

Preventing Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are no laughing matter. According to someone who once suffered from them, they can be very painful and can even be dangerous if left untreated. Luckily for hemorrhoid sufferers, there are lots of hemorrhoid relief treatments available today and even operations to help them. However, the prevention is always best so do make sure you eat your daily dose of fruits and vegetables to ensure adequate fibre intake.

Being Your Own Boss

I admire people who have the courage and entrepreneurship to venture out into their own business. Some people I know have recently decided to take the plunge and armed with names from free directory services and their phones, they have successfully started to build a small but thriving business. I guess being your own boss is always slightly harder in the beginning but is a lot more rewarding at the end of it.

Trying New Treatments

DH was recently complaining about some pains in his knee when we had to climb some stairs after doing a lot of walking around town. His friend advised that he try hgh supplements which are said to be effective for joint pains. I think he is willing to try any form of treatment for his knee. I am for trying new treatments as long as it is mainly natural rather than chemical. I am currently a little wary of the untested new drugs that have been flooding the market.

Skin Treatments

If you are looking for the best acne treatment in KL, then you simply have to try Dr Ting's Skin and Laser Clinic on Jalan Imbi. He has been successfully treating people for acne and skin problems for many years and every one of his patients have been very happy with the results. I have personally tried his treatments and have been successfully cured of my acne problems. The only downside is the long waiting queues that you have to endure due to his popularity!

Jetting Off

Last night we met up with some friends and were so envious at a couple who jetted off to Bali this morning for a week long vacation! That was when DH and I realised that our last holiday was a year ago during our honeymoon! That prompted us to look into booking a holiday soon...nope nothing as exotic as Branson vacation but certainly an exotic place we've never been to! It helps that my friend's getting married there too! :)
