You’ll never be […]

Lock My Flush

Public toilet ain’t exactly the best place I like to be in unless it is really necessary. And when the time comes that I seriously needed to go to one, I’ll do my best to minimize the things that I touch along the way knowing how WET and FILTHY public washrooms are in Malaysia! When people say that washrooms can be the most dangerous room in a house or any other places, I totally agree […]

Shopping for Christmas : Trudy and Teddy

I remember fondly 7 months ago when we were first introduced to Trudy and Teddy apparel. I fell in love with their European style instantly!

It was a whole lot of fun scouting through their lovely […]
