I love movies, it’s my favourite art form and story-telling method. As a person who is addicted to stories, movie-watching is an experience. It’s a way to uncover and understand compelling truths about the human condition told through the seemingly harmless stories. 2016 has been a good year for movies and below is the list of my favourites for this year: 1. Arrival Stunning visual … Continue reading My Favourite Movies of 2016
I’ve wanted to review this foundation for a loooong time since I bought it in May this year. I was looking for a waterproof foundation that I can wear for outdoor activities and I was sold when I thought the Sales Associate in M.A.C succesfully matched me to an NC25 foundation shade. Turned out, it was too light for me. What is it with these … Continue reading M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation – Product review
This year’s Christmas is my first Christmas with my husband’s family in Germany. God, it still feels weird saying the word ‘husband’… Spoiler: No pictures of white Christmas in Germany. According to all Germans I spoke to, there has been NO white Christmas in Heidelberg for a loooong time. Global warming? Unlike in Malaysia and many other countries, Christmas is celebrated on the 24th of … Continue reading Christmas in Germany 2016.
“Susan, enjoy the absurdity of our world. It’s a lot less painful. Believe me, our world is a lot less painful than the real world.” *SPOILER ALERT!

I was packing for my Christmas trip to Germany and went through my makeup stash when I realized I have some products that still looked brand new because I hardly use them. Most of these products are definitely Youtube Made Me Buy It. Yep, what can I say… I’m a makeup junkie who loves watching Youtube tutorials, makeup hacks and product reviews. That being said, … Continue reading Products I won’t be buying anymore!
This is one of those products that I bought simply because I liked the sales person. The Body Shop has a store in Heidelberg’s Haupstraße with wonderful staff who are willing to muster as much English as they can to help a customer who is struggling with the German language. I love the idea behind The Body Shop brand and their business philosophy. I used … Continue reading Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask – Product Review
I finally ran out of my trusty, holy-grail status makeup remover last week after a good 4 months of using it. Retails at approx. €10 for 200ml product in Watsons (Malaysian version of Boots), it was a pretty awesome product and I regret didn’t get a back-up before I left Malaysia. I’ve been looking for similar oil-based makeup remover online but none seems to compare … Continue reading La Roche-Posay Make-up Remover Milk – Makeup Remover Product Review
Moving to a new country, regardless of the reason, can be rather unnerving, even for the well-traveled folks. If you find yourself unexpectedly moving to a country you know little to nothing about, every tiny bit of helpful info counts. I’ve always thought Ireland is a beautiful country but it was never in my top list of country to move to. Hey, you’ve always wanted … Continue reading Moving to Dublin, Ireland.
There’s something about December – or, is it actually Christmas? – that gets me all melancholic and mellow inside. I don’t usually allow myself to indulge in these moods but somehow, come December, it just feels good to let myself sink in these moments. One of the best ways to feed these moods is watching my favourite Christmas movies. It has become some kind of … Continue reading My 5 All-Time Favourite Christmas Movies 🙂
I read this novella the first time in 2014 shortly after Boyfie (back then😛) went on some travels. He left me his Kindle with five downloaded novels of Gabriel García Márquez, two of them are novels which got him awarded Nobel Prize in 1982 – A Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. Frankly speaking, I chose to read Memories of … Continue reading Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel García Márquez
