There are many things we experience even within a year. I learnt few valuable lesson..throughout the years. As we were taught to be kind, love and caring towards one another, there are times we need to becareful for not being too kind. I believe I have been too nice sometimes and when I show Im upset or angry, seems people makes a fuss about it. The thing is I am human and I dont really have a reputation to keep.
#Dont get too involved
Sometimes we feel the need to help friends and letting ourselves to be ‘the middleman’ in any project. If the proposal not done by you..don’t be involved! especially when two parties are you friends..let them deal and settle. Stay out of the way. If they kill each another maybe you may call as a witness but at least you survive.
#Dont be too concerned
You may see or observe something that may help your friend in his/her business. You may want to tell him/her on what you think but before you want to say anything, may I suggest ‘not to say anything’ at all..unless this friend of yours ask for suggestion or opinion. Do not show your concern because it does not sound as a concern to your friend but more as a ‘kepoh’ or trying to criticize him or her.
#Dont be too friendly
Not many people understand you. Different people act differently on friendship. To me having male or female friends are equally important because I look for quality of a person.
People may judge us in different way, read and perceive on how we act upon them. The problem is we tend to judge and perceive people wrong most of the time. We may try to be nice but looks like we wanted something from them.
#Start being nice to yourself
With all these happening, I feel its time to just stop being too nice to other people and start to be nice to myself. I need to forgive myself, letting my anger free and be thankful for the experiences i gone through.
#Keep it simple
Life demands so many things from us and we somehow want to be part of society so we act or want to be like them. We buy things that are not necessary and forgotten the reason to live.
#Time to reflect
The only way to do this is to go far out from the city. I love to get back to my childhood memory because its where my dream startef, there where I find my joy and peace. My inner child seems to be alive when I smell the sea, trees, watching the birds fly..it feels as it was just like yesterday when I was in my childhood days. As if my grandparents were with me protecting me when I fell and hurt my hand. Its a beautiful childhood memory.
Get in touch with the nature, be bored doing nothing and just listen the surroundings. The nature gives great advice if you listen.
#The nature taught me
When I stop my mind from wandering and feel the moment. As I listen to the sound of waves that tell me to be brave as the feel of breeze comforts me. The sun shine above me touches my skin as it given me permission to cry and let go of my emotions. And at night I feel like the moon gives me blessing to do what my heart desire. Its beautiful to be in the moment.
Its just a great way to start another year, another chapter of our story and more lesson to learn.
Enjoy this video I made during my stay in a place call 9Huts in Kudat.
It was Kaamatan holiday, rather than visiting the KadazanDusun Cultural Center, we decided to get away from the city. Hubby had already booked a place in Kudat, why Kudat? we fallen in love with Kudat. Don’t know what to expect, we packed our bags and had the 3 hours drive.
Upon reaching, it really feels like home and to me ..its down memory lane, my childhood environment. Except for the sea, everything is the kampung environment I use to stay.
THE KAMPUNG STYLE
The place is call 9 Huts on a Hill, you can check the availability of room, price or any details you need to know.
Its a place to relax and have the quality time with the family so.. this really means quality time.. with no television!
LETS TAKE A DEEP BREATH
We are all busy with our daily routine, our jobs and responsibilities. We starts early morning and at the end of the day, we are all tired. What I love most about this place is this Eagle Yoga Platform. It is situated facing the beautiful sea and looking at the blue sky,
While you do your yoga in the morning, you can feel the warm sun touching your skin and the feel of breeze as you stretch. As you lie down taking your deep breath, you will hear the sound of the sea waves.. it is so relaxing.
TIME FOR EXPLORING
You are free to have a walk, cycle, work out at the gym or feed the animals (they have chicken, ducks and goose at the moment). We forgotten to take picture as we really had fun exploring the place.
PATH TO THE SEA
This path will lead you to the sea. You can go to the sea any time you want.. well except for when storm and rain. Morning will be the best time to go to the sea and even swim. I love the view at night, as you can see people with flashlight looking for crab.
9 Huts on a Hill located in Bak Bak Kudat are so near to the Peak of Borneo and 15 minute drives to Pekan Kudat. It is still a new place and there are a restaurant under construction.
So if you are thinking to get away from the hustle and bustle from the city or just need time to relax, I recommend you this place is the great place to do so. Plan, set your date and go! Till then, have a great escape!
Looking at myself in the mirror, a lady at her early 40s, with few grey hair.. hiding in between the dye burgundy hair. Fine yet visible line and wrinkles here and there, uneven and unhealthy skin. How
I get tempted when i receive any beauty treatment brochure and card or new new skin care product and supplement that proven to make you look younger than your age. For sure the good product comes with good price but somehow not all the product suits your skin. There was one time, i tried a product after a good review from friends but when i put it on my face it feels so tight, well i thought its the effect but it got worsen with itchy red dots on my face. Its just doesn’t suits me, so i stop. Now i am happy with just simple skincare i bought from Watson.
Now that i am at my 40s, i want to learn more on how to age beautifully. Allowing myself to grow ..not old but wise. I have been trying to know if there anyway of having youthful skin the cheapest way. And its true that to have radiant and beauty skin are not by using skincare alone but from deep within and some technique. Trying to answer my own question, i did some research and today I am sharing with you how we can do it.
There are some technique that helps us get that radiant, healthy skin without any injection or knife under the skin…just by using the touch of your fingers and the right methods both using massage and workout.
Here are few videos collection i found on website for you to try. I didn’t know there are different types of massage but i have here..
