How Not To Be Afraid Of Death

I guess I'll do this. So that when my time is here, I can look back and know that I have lived my life in the best way I knew and could. And step into the unknown with total peace.

DUSK Jewelry, My Love

Know what's one of my loves? It's a range of handmade semi-precious gemstone collection designed by me. It's called DUSK Jewelry.

I decided to call this range DUSK because of the beautiful stone colours that we work with. Combined with the gold wire and chains. it reminds me of the wondrous colours of sunset. The myriad hues that descends the sky at dusk. 

Rutilated Quartz Necklaces

DUSK Jewelry is available online too.

I Want To Be A Princess

What do you do when your dream is to be a princess when you grow up?

What do you do when you are neither a brunette nor a blonde?

What do you do when you hardly get to wear a full gown?

What do you do? 
What would you do??

Princess Hands

Then you'd just pose like one whenever you have the chance to. Haha... so cute.

Le Petite Cancale @ Duxton Hill

Fantastic meal @ Le Petite Cancale with bf that made me go ooo..lala...

The crab was creamy (in bf's words), the whelks was fresh and succulent.

The oysters were divine.

The Salted Butter & Caramel Lava Cake was heavenly. And even the bread was good.

The weather was perfect and the company was everything I've always wanted.

As I sipped away on my wine, I felt...


The Explorer Hotel Malacca, Melaka Malaysia Review

I found The Explorer Hotel, Malacca for my weekend stay last week through a last minute promo deal on

It is currently only 3 weeks old! A very new hotel indeed! Take a look at the spanking new hotel lobby.

Somehow, the hotel gave me a chalet feel as we were walking to our rooms.

The room was small and neat. Nothing fancy but good enough. The toilet was also small but it really was a steal at around 50SGD! Very value for money and this 143 rooms hotel is located right next to a few shipping centres. Perfect for me!

Overall, I would say that I had a great stay there. Namely for these few reasons:

1) Their customer service is great with very prompt response. They even have a facebook page and you'll be able to get replies really fast by posting on the wall.

2) For a fee of 5MYR, you can have unlimited entries and exits from their sheltered carpark. And if you're lucky, you may be able to find a lot right in front of the hotel entrance like we did (2nd pic above).

The main road carpark entrance wasn't in service when we were there last week. To enter, you'll need to make a big u-turn around Mahkota Parade and enter from the back entrance.

3) The great location of the hotel. There's 2 shopping centres next to it. One, across the street called Dataran Pahlawan and that has my favourite Vincci shop.

Mahkota Parade

In fact, I think the area The Explorer Hotel is located will eventually develop into a shopping area with more shops! Currently, it's really new and the shop space are all vacant.

As a sidetrack, I got all 3 pairs below for about 60SGD only!! So happy with my cheap buys! I love shoes... 

4) The hotel is situated about 10 mins walk away from the main Jonker Street in Malacca, which is across the river. It was a shorter walk than I have expected. And not at all bad if the weather is fine.

5) The hotel also offers 10MYR McDonald's voucher and there's 2 McDonald's in the 2 shopping centres mentioned above. It's really convenient to grab a Mc breakkie or supper. 

And I had a yummilicious Chicken McMuffin breakfast with the complimentary vouchers. 

Well, well, do grab the cheap deals for hotel stays in The Explorer Hotel, Malacca while it's still on. You won't regret it. ;)
