Love Has No Labels


From Love Has No Labels
A lot of us make snap judgments based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. Yet most of us aren’t even conscious of our prejudice.
That’s why it’s called implicit bias.

I strongly feel that we need more love nowadays.

I cried watching the video.

The Right Time For Coffee


Yawning while drinking coffee?
Ever wonder why you are still sleepy even after consuming your coffee?

Probably because you are taking it at the wrong time.
According to I Love Coffee, you have to time your coffee-drinking to get the best result in staying fresh and awake.

Our body works on a hormonal rhythm called Circadian Clock. The complete cycle takes 24 hours whereby your hormones are circling the body to enable it to function - sleep, wake up etc.

At a certain time, a hormon called cortisol appears. Cortisol is responsible to wake you up and be alert. The production of cortisol peaks from 8 am - 9 am daily. This peak functions as a natural caffeine to rejuvenate and wake your body. So, it is not advisable to take your coffee during this peak hour as the caffeine effect from your coffee will be diminished, resulting in your upping your coffee dosage and intake.

The question remains - when is the best time to take your coffee?
Take your coffee when the cortisol level drops, and this happens a few times daily.
The right time to take your coffee
Or if you want a better cure for your sleep-sickness - just take Mineral Coffee.
It will keep you fresh, awake and healthy too.
#MineralCoffee #SetKurusBajet
Mineral Coffee is the only coffee that is infused with the goodness of Garam Buluh (Bamboo Salt) - a type of salt that is natural sea salt cooked in bamboo using natural and traditional cooking method. Originated from Korea thousands of years ago, this method of cooking process purifies the salt and enhances the salt's mineral content which is good for our body.

Bamboo salt is high in minerals especially magnesium, iron and calcium and is able to help our body absorb nutrients efficiently.

Some salt today is artificially and chemically made to taste? It is much cheaper to produce, saltier that the salt in its natural form and BAD for your health?

All I Want For CNY


Terima kasih +Mira Cikcit sebab mengingatkan saya bahawa contest dari Shopcoupons bersama Lazada nie dah hampir ke penghujungnya.

Sebenarnya saya dah agak lama jadi pelanggan Lazada nie.
Pembelian terbaru saya adalah Jawbone Up
Ye lah apabila dalam proses #SayaNakKurus nie, dengan adanya Jawbone Up nie memang banyak membantu saya memantau tahap kecergasan diri.
Thanks Lazada for the lightning-fast service
Lagipun, jika dibandingkan dengan yang ada di luar sana, berikut adalah sebab kenapa saya memilih untuk membeli dari Lazada.
  1. Harga lebih murah daripada yang lain
  2. Penghantaran yang percuma dan pantas (biasanya dalam 3 hari saya dah dapat barang)
  3. Lazada adalah portal yang boleh dipercayai dari segi perkhidmatan dan kualiti barangannya (I actually went through a few portals and yes the price is much cheaper but when I read the reviews on their services, I decided on Lazada on the spot)
Anyway, all I want for this CNY adalah seperti berikut :

The first item is Jabra ROX Wireless Bluetooh Headset (Black).
My first wish
Why do I want this?
I am in the middle of making myself a more fit human being. So I will need all the help.
And I do not necessarily love running/ walking.
I love dancing ie I love hearing music while working out.
But since our body is easily accustomed to one type of training and will eventually brings no impact to your weight loss, so I have to vary my types of training.
I will have to do not only cardio exercises but also the weight training and others too.
And to motivate myself doing all the other trainings, I must have music with me.
And this headset is the most perfect gadget for me as I can do all sorts of movement without having worry of getting entangled with the wires.
I can bring it anywhere and all is need is my handphone as I can easily sync it to my favorite playlist.

My second wish is Gopro Hero 4 Silver set.
With this, one can become a Guru in photo-taking!
Why do I want this?

The correct question is - WHO DOESN'T?
I love travelling and bringing a huge DSLR just to get the best composure for pictures is not only troublesome, it is heavy!
And DSLR is not easy to handle, especially for taking selfie!
Imagine connecting your DSLR to a pole (selfie stick) and use it for taking selfie.
So, with this set, all I need is my phone to act as its remote and I am ready to a photographer.
This set is also handy for taking a wide selfie too!
And the quality of the pictures are also as good as professional's.
*The free items are very much appreciated bonus - the Pole and Memory Card*

The third in the list is Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Core i5 set.
Come to daddy!
Again, who doesn't need a mobile laptop?
I know there are lots of other models that are also mobile and user-friendly.

So why do I want this particular amazing item?
With its weigh just 800 g and at 10 mm thin, the Surface is the best to take wherever I go.
Being am online GLAMpreneur (GLAM members + entrepreneur) and a blogger, I need to be on my toes all the time.
There are thousands of things to update and information to disseminate every minute. As its battery could last up to 9 hours, I do not have to bring the power cord during the day.
And as its performance is of equal to a desktop, I could almost do anything on this baby (except making my favorite coffee. Hey, I can just order mine from the website)
Having the 5MP front and back camera on the Surface is just an added bonus too.

The fourth on my wishlist is Philips Senso Touch Wet and Dry Electric Shaver RQ1258.
Hair problem? Not anymore.
As I have mentioned, being a GLAMpreneur and a blogger, I also need to be at my best, almost all the time.
Imagine having meeting client looking like an ape! I am sure that not only you will not close any deal, you might end up in a zoo.
So, having this electric shaver will help me with the hair department (walaupun takde la nak berbulu sangat).

And the last item in my list is GMP Hard Cover Travel Luggage - Gold some more.
As I love travelling, I think having a good and sturdy luggage is one of the must have.
Since this baby comes in a set of 3, and it is in GOLD, my eyes were quickly drawn to it!
3 sizes for different types of travelling - small for a 3 day journey, medium for a week stay and large for 8 days or more trip.
Or perhaps I could bring all three as back-up during the boxing day sale in Leicester?

There you go Shopcoupons & Lazada.
So, when can I get my wishes?

You can check out the products at Lazada.

Focus - Movie Review


Will Smith merupakan pelakon yang berkaliber.
Sejak dari lakonan sebagai Fresh Prince of Bel Air, saya sudah meminati lakonan beliau yang lawak dan bersahaja.
Rasanya dia sudah melakonkan banyak watak - lawak, sedih, serius tetapi rasanya jadi penjahat belum lagi kot.
Will Smith as a baddie?
So, apabila +ChurpChurp menjemput untuk hadir #Churpremiere Focus memang tidak saya lepaskan peluang.

Nicky Spurgeon merupakan seorang conman yang mewarisi kemahiran menipu daripada datuk dan ayahnya.
Detik awal perkenalan Nicky dan Jess
Dia menemui Jess yang mencuba untuk menipunya ketika Nicky sedang makan malam.
Apabila Jess mengetahui bahawa skimnya terbongkar dan dia mengetahui bahawa Nicky juga merupakan seorang pakar tipu yang berjaya, Jess meminta untuk belajar sedikit ilmu daripada Nicky.

Kagum dengan kebolehan Nicky, Jess menjejaki Nicky sehingga ke bandar yang lain. Rupa-rupanya Nicky sedang mengumpulkan kumpulan beliau untuk menjalankan aktiviti menyeluk saku dan menipu orang ramai yang hadir untuk menyaksikan perlawanan American Football di bandar tersebut.

Setelah berjaya mendapatkan habuan sebanyak USD1.2 juta, Nicky mengumumkan bahawa tugasan mereka berakhir. Nicky dan Jess yang sudah mulai mesra meneruskan hari mereka dengan menonton perlawanan American Football tersebut.
Aksi mesra Nicky dan Jess
Menonton American Football bersama
My guess is..
Ketika menonton tersebut, mereka terserempak dengan seorang kaki judi yang amat kaya dan ruthless. Pada awalnya Jess bersetuju mereka bertaruh untuk suka-suka tetapi apabila Nicky semakin kalah dan akhirnya meletakkan hasil 'kerja' mereka (USD1.2 juta) sebagai taruhan, Jess mulai marah. Jess juga semakin gentar apabila nasib pertaruhan itu terletak pada dia apabila dia disuruh meneka nombor pemain yang sedang difikirkan oleh lawan mereka.
Amazingly, Jess berjaya meneka nombor yang tepat dan mereka keluar dari padang tersebut dengan keuntungan yang lebih banyak.

Nicky yang teringat pesan ayahnya agar tidak bermain emosi di dalam menjalankan 'kerja' memutuskan untuk meninggalkan Jess begitu sahaja selepas menyerahkan keuntungan Jess.

Tiga tahun kemudian, Nicky bertemu semula dengan Jess apabila dia cuba menipu seorang jutawan litar lumba, Garriga. Jess kini telah menjadi kekasih Garriga dan kehadiran Jess menyebabkan Nicky hilang tumpuan kerana ternyata dia memang benar-benar menyintai Jess.
Stunning Jess
Apakah Nicky akan berjaya menipu Garriga?
Bagaimanakah penyelesaian kepada kisah hati di antara Jess dan Nicky?

Plot : 4.9/ 5.0. Penceritaan yang kemas dan sangat twisted sehingga saya sempat pening memikirkan keadaan sebenar dan siapa yang bersalah pada beberapa babak. Believe me, you will never know what actually happens during the movie, in a good way. And you will be emotionally attached to the movie through out the screening too.

Penghayatan : 4.9/ 5.0 Memang thumbs up kepada semua yang terlibat. Penghayatan yang memang superb dan believable.

Will I watch it again : Yes and I will buy the DVD too.
