Free As My Hair

I'm not one of those who like to talk shit about other people's physical appearance because we are all beautiful in our own twisted little way or another. If you think I have shitty attitude, by all means just tell it to my face. But if you hate my face or the fact that I don't look like a gym bunny sporno-sexual bullshit, I can't help you with that. And I love my messy curly hair because it gives me character. It is also healthy as fuck because I only use organic hair care product and they cost more than your rent.

TMC Medi Clinic: My Better Face Forward

I have always wanted to try laser treatment on my acne scars. It's such a bummer that at the age of thirty-something, I still get acne or I just read online somewhere and it is referred to as adult-acne. Volcano pizza-face, zits...whatever you want to call it. I guess in my family, I'm the one with the short end of the stick because my two sisters are not only fairer but both have flawless skin to match.

It's been a few months since my first treatment with TMC Medi Clinic in Publika. I can see the difference but due to my conflicting schedule and the fact that it takes quite an effort to go to Publika (God knows making an effort is not my strongest trait), my progress has been kinda slow. Blame it on me but my super-nice doctor (Dr. Lashela) said I should start coming for treatment twice a week from now on.

Even after just less than five treatments, my facial scars are now less obvious and my pores are smaller. Thanks to TMC Medi Clinic, soon I will no longer be self conscious each time I receive cheek kiss from other people.

Travel for Work, Work For Travel

Wow! Life’s been crazy hectic. Been travelling quite a bit for work. And working for a monthly publication is not as easy as I expected. Two words: PROOF READING. Well that’s actually one word hyphenated but it’s the good kind of hectic. Being busy is better than having all the time in the world but constantly worrying about days to come… or where to get enough money to pay rent.

A friend once told me. How you spend the first day of the New Year will be the indication of the kind of year that you will be having. I spent mine on a short weekend vacation with two good friends and another friend that I bumped into at the countdown party. It’s only April and I think I have travelled at least five times which is quite uncommon for someone who didn't even register for international passport until last year. I guess my friend Nadya is right!

I never see myself as one of those travelling junkies, thrill-seekers or backpackers (Euw! They're the worst!) but here I am going into my fifth month of writing for a travel magazine.
