Odd Eats


There are a lot of new restaurants booming here and there in KL and it's nice to see new food and desserts everywhere. Just to lay out a few of the places that I would back back again for certain food.

#1. Black Squid Ink Rice with Omelette (hope I got the name right) from Franco. But the best thing I love is their dessert. It's green tea something and needs at least 20 mins to prepare. Trust me, it's worth the time.

#2. SEED Cafe. I love the refreshing juice, Seed de Menthe! And I can't remember what's the name of the food =___=

#3. After Black. Cozy place to hangout. Maybe it's because I was sitting was back towards the end so I don't feel the noises that much. Hah. But the food and place were nice.

Be back soon! x

Post Laparotomy Days


It's been three week since my surgery, coming four to be exact. I became bored at week three, and started going out for short walks or dinner after that. Now I have no problem going out shopping but still need to stop and rest whenever I can. Heh.

Sounds fun. Well it does, during the day. But at night it's not much better. It's either waking up a few times or not sleeping for few hours. I couldn't shut down at night, mentally while physically awake in the morning. Geez.

Today and yesterday was much better. Managed to sleep much better than before. Woke up at 5am today, but it's  still good. (:

Seriously I don't know how did I managed to get through the nights. With cautious turnings on the bed, waking up to pee, even trying to stand up after laying on the bed for quite a while. Each of my meals had been cut off to half the portion, limited clothes to wear due to the wound site (basically just three) walking like a turtle. Maybe my walks are comparable to a young turtle.

I just wish now that these days will soon disappear and I would resume my usual life again. Not that I'm not grateful I got rid of the pain, but.... I guess I just want more.

Beauty Issue #9 - D.U.P Wonder Eyelid Tape


A friend gave me this Double Eyelid Tape she got from an online store. I've been using it and my verdict is: 4 stars. Great tape with a catch.

First and foremost, the adhesive is really strong. I tried using it for 8hours without worrying it will pop out of my eyelids. I've seen girls with the eyelid tape sticking out and it's "ewww". This is WOW.. A serious WOOOOOW. Very sticky even my eyelids gets oily after half the day wearing this on.

Then, I love the size and shape of it. Perfect fit for my eyelids. No shaping, no cutting, no further adjustments to the tape. Just remove it from the sheet and it's ready to stick. And I love the sharp tip ends. I tried eyelid tape with thick ends and it's pretty weird looking after it sticks to my eyelid. Maybe it's only me.

Last but not least, I love the eyelid "fork". I was looking for this up and down as the usual cheaper ones are not really the correct fork to use. This was the original fork that I think all girls should be using. The cheaper ones are very much smaller and it's not very convenient to stick the eyelid tape in a go. This bigger fork allows the two ends of the eyelid tape to touch the fork and adhere it straight at one shot to the designated position. Great must-have tool.

Beauty Issue #8 - Po Bling Pore Sonic Cleanser


When my "small boss" went to taiwan, I told her I wanted this - Po Bling Pore Sonic Cleanser. I have been wanting to get one of my own but I'm so not familiar with taiwan products. And she does. I think I'm more familiar with Western products.

I've been using it for 2 weeks, I guess and it does has it's pros and cons, similar to those I've read online.

What I love about it is it cleans my white heads. Those you can feel on your nose using your fingers. I used to scratch them off a lot when I have the chance to. But it was always there. This cleanser actually acts as a scrub to my face. So I barely use scrub cleanser nowadays. Combining both will actually make my skin really dry.

After a few experiment, I personally think it's best for me to use this cleanser only twice per week (mostly Tuesday & Friday) to avoid my skin turning dry.

Also, it's using normal batteries but then really waterproof at the same time. So, no worries about damaging the batteries here.

What I dislike about it is the brushes. It's okay for now as it's still new. But after some time, before changing the head, I would always imagine all the bacteria living inside and underneath the brush.


Other than that, everything seems fine for me. I wouldn't have high hope on removing my blackheads with this cleanser because I can clearly see and clarify that IT DOESN'T WORK on black heads. I have plenty of black heads and I know if a product works on them. And this Po Bling Pore Sonic Cleanser is not in my black-head-free list.

Yet for the price and it's function, I think I'll keep it until it's useless to me. :)

Ovarian Cyst Removal


Some of you might know in detail about what happened to me last week. For some, sorry for keeping you guys worried. I figured this is one of my very unforgettable happenings in my life and I would like all ladies especially to pay attention to this.

As my title stated, I had a cyst, growing inside of me -without knowing it. "Pfft... How could this happen to me, right?" But it did. In fact, it can happen to you, your BFF, anyone, literally. Don't be that surprised.

From Wikipedia, "An ovarian cyst is any collection of fluid, surrounded by a very thin wall, within an ovary." If you guys wants to visualize these words, just refer to the first picture above. THAT'S A CYST

Last month, I was really busy. Seriously. But again, since when I'm free and easy since 2015, right? Last month was a little different. I felt slight pain at my left abdomen (or in general, stomach. LOL..everything is so scientific to me now) right after I ate some desserts. No proper meal due to pre-CNY work. And I thought it was normal and it would go away. I thought. 

Well I thought wrong.

The pain went on and off for the past few weeks before Chinese New Year and I ignored it over and over. During CNY, it was obvious that my tummy was growing. I thought it was funny cause my tummy looked like a watermelon. Haha. Oh, I slept a lot during the holiday season too. Like, hibernating-kinda-a-lot.

"Must be those yummy-juicy food I had day and night."

A day after I was back to work, the pain came back. However, it was severe at night. My plan was to go to the clinic the next day. Good plan.

Midnight struck and the pain was at level 6/10. Shyt. Went to the clinic and the doctor said it was air plus constipation. I doubted for a sec cause I took a glass of fibre days ago to make sure my motions are passed out well. But then, who's the doctor here.

Had a jab of pain killer, went home, took the meds before heading to bed. Tired as hell. Couldn't sleep all night until 4am - first throw up.

6am - second throw up.

Obviously the meds weren't working. Damn. At that point, my pain level increased to 7/10. Still, I waited 'til it was 8am, and texted my boss at work. I couldn't drive and had to wait for my colleagues to pick up me to the hospital.

12pm - Did ultrasound after doctor's consultation and then he said there's a cyst - a HUGE cyst. I didn't listen to him as my pain level was up to 9/10. I requested for pain killers. Like a drug addict. 

Pain killers

Pain killers

Pain killers!

The O&G specialist said surgery had to be done on the same day. The cyst was huge and twisted with my Fallopian tube hence the severe pain. I said yes to everything as long as I have pain killers for 24/7. You guys don't have to imagine how huge is my cyst. It's on my #2 picture above. :)

From the doctor's words before it was removed "It's as huge as a fully formed baby's head". Geez. SI much for thinking it's a watermelon. Hah.

I had laparotomy. Laparotomy are usually performed when cysts are much bigger (any cyst >6cm) than normal size which might be cancerous. Thank God mine was benign. 

It can happen to any ladies. So my advice, go for the ultrasound. At least once a year just to make sure. No harm anyway. Guys, get your ladies for a check up too.

Take care and stay healthy!

I'm on the way to full recovery! Still walking like a turtle but...almost there! ;)
