Air is one of the most essential elements needed to sustain life. The overall health of your body and mind greatly depends on the quality of air that you breathe. But nowadays people often tend to forget about the importance of clean air. 



Never take clean air for granted. As an outdoor person like me, when the air gets bad outside, it becomes a natural tendency for us to assume that we will be safer in our homes. Yet, does staying indoors equal to protection from dust and dirt? The answer is NO. Your indoor air is often much more polluted than the air outside. Since we spend most of our time indoors these days, our exposure to poor indoor air quality puts us at risk for a number of ailments, including allergies, asthma, and respiratory issues.

2016 is truly amazing for me. 
I've finally complete another adventure. All thanks to Indonesia Tourism for the arrangement and hospitality. This 11 days journey is truly amazing for each of us. We managed to visit 4 cities of Indonesia in total for this time which is Makassar, Lombok, Banyuwangi and Bandung. Obviously, 11 days is not enough to visit all of the places. Indonesia has so much more to discover. 

I've been to Bali Island 3 years ago, but not the rest of the cities in Indonesia. Well, I'm still glad i get to discover some of them this trip. When you think of Indonesia, most people would probably just “Bali,” but there are SO many more incredible islands to discover (over 17,000, in fact). 



After visiting Hong Kong for a couple of times. I've realised that one of the things that the Hongkie LOVE about : shopping and eating. If the locals aren’t out on the streets of Causeway Bay shopping, they’re probably out for yumcha (dim sum) or checking out the hottest eateries in town. Honestly, there’s just not enough time, money and stomach space for you to eat all the food in Hong Kong. So, you still have to be selective and go for your priority food. For me, i like locals Chinese food and i love something Insta-worthy and tastes good at the same time! Hahaha. Therefore, here is a summary of some of the places i went for this round. 


#1 DIM SUM ICON 

I could not resist when my friends told me that there’s actually Gudetama-themed dim sum restaurant. I mean, cute and tasty?! Of course, I had to give it a shot! Dim Sum Icon has two outlets in Hong Kong, the most popular one should be the one in THE ONE at Tsim Sha Tsui, but I went to the one in Central. Its around 5 minutes walk from the MRT station. 
Hello, HONG KONG!
I'm back to this city for the sixth time this round. Hong Kong is a busy city. If you are a city girl/boy, you will definitely love this place! It is so much to do here, it is really headache about where to start in order get the most out of the trip. For me, i love to shop during my trip. That's the reason why, it is a MUST to do some shopping! I've been to most of the common shopping district in HK. So this time, i decided to explore some new places and guess what i've found? SOLO Mall. Basically, It is a unique concept building with a lot of shop lots.



Booking a hotel is very easy. But finding the right hotel? It took us forever! If you are a tourist in Hong Kong, people say that it is best to book a hotel between Tsim Sha Tsui and Mongkok. But depending on your itinerary, you might consider other areas. For me, the most important thing is that the hotel is very near MTR stations, restaurants or food stalls and convenient stores. Of course, you should also make sure you feel safe in the area, its surroundings, and the building itself.

So, which part to stay in? The Kowloon area or The Hong Kong Island?

If you stay in Kowloon, the Tsim Sha Tsui part of Kowloon is probably the area of Kowloon that most tourists seem to prefer. Many of the Kowloon tourist attractions are located in this neighborhood. It is also near to Mongkok, which many people would feel has a more "local" feeling - that is, less tourists compared to Tsim Sha Tsui and more local people and street life (the ladies market, sneakers streets etc.)  If you stay on Hong Kong Island, I would recommend staying in Causeway Bay or the neighborhood called Central. 

But, regardless of whether you stay in Kowloon or Hong Kong Island, as long as you are relatively near the MTR station then you are fine because the public transportation is quite convenient in Hong Kong. It will take you anywhere you need to go. 

For the hotel, If you are on a tight budget, you will be happy to know that there are a lot of budget hotels in Hong Kong.There are a huge number of hotels in Hong Kong and with so many to choose from, it can be really hard to decide where you should stay. If you are not travelling with a large group of people. You can consider ....

Sorry for the delay, was really busy with travelling and works these few months. 
Finally have time to upload my Club Med VLOG after so many months.

Nothing beats a night out with your best mates! I love having a drink with my friends during the weekend, especially cocktails! There are so many easy-to-drink cocktails that come in pretty colours and sweet flavours. Generally, women prefer cocktails for an easier drinking experience. If you're a cocktail drinker, odds are you've heard of the term ‘craft cocktails’ floating around recently. 

Guess what - there are plenty of crafted cocktails in the market. Each place has their own specialty with different tastes and ingredients. I was surprised to find them available at The Westin Kuala Lumpur too. It is located at QBA Bar & Grill and if you enjoy cocktails, this is the perfect spot! 

The Westin Hotels & Resorts have recently introduced Crafted at Westin, a new cocktail menu that invites guests to choose well behind the bar. They use a lot of natural ingredients in the cocktails, which taste fresher and less sweet compared to your average cocktail. If you like specialty cocktails, I recommend giving it a try. 
When dreams come true......It is not just a dream anymore! 

Yes, i've finally made it to Italy one month after my Paris trip. I still can't believe what had just happened. I've always been dreaming for a Europe trip. Paris is the first place i wanted to go, and i'm glad i made it and it is really a bonus for me that i get to travel to Italy too in such a short period of time after my previous trip! I've been travelling a lot these days because i want to see more, experience everything before i get old. There are places i must see at least once in life.

Travel around the world is my dream since young. I'm blessed to have family that love to travel as much as i do. Every year, we travel to different places, it is like a tradition for our family started when i was a kid. So yea, i guess that's the reason why i love to travel so much! Me and my family have been travelling in Asian countries for the past few years, finally this time round, we flew out of Asia. Say YAY! It's my bucket list, EUROPE! 

It was a 9 days 6 night in Italy. Europe. We are following tour, it costs us RM7428 for the tour, including the flight tickets, hotel stays for 6 nights, tour guided, transportation, food. It is all included except the Gondola rides we took in Venice. It is quite affordable and worthy for a Europe trip! 

Here's all the places i've been during this tour! This is has finally fulfill some of my bucket list.
My silly girl - Abby is a wonderful little creature with a personality of her own. She never fails to make me smile. Her innocent eyes are my favourite! Coming home to a wagging tail and shining eyes are simply the best. She always dances for me with excitement every time she saw me. The unconditional love, the companionship that she gave me all these months is irreplaceable.

I've learned so much after the 30 days challenge with Pedigree. We have stronger bond now. 

I see things more differently after the challenge done with my pet. Abby showed me that things in life really aren't that hard - Happiness is truly just you and your companion.     

No matter what, even if you’ve been so busy that you haven’t had the time to give your dog the attention he deserves, he’s still madly waiting for you to come home. He doesn’t care if you have a zit, got fired, dumped, or made a really bad fashion choice that day. All he wants is you. He loves you unconditionally. And that, my friends, is the ultimate reason why we should love our dogs. 


 She is super adorable!
Love doing the high five challenge with her all time.
