Exclusive for WW magazine

For the December issue of the very stylish WW magazine,
I wrote an exclusive article about Highland Towers
which happened 18 years ago this year.

How time flies and yes, 18 years is a long time,
yet I can still remember it like it all happened yesterday.

I have never written an article like this before. Special thanks to Wirda Adnan,
editor of WW magazine who has always been very supportive of me for the
opportunity to share a very personal story with her readers.

This issue also features beautiful fashion photos taken in Malacca.
Below are two of my favourite images. Congrats to the team who did this shoot!

Looking forward to future issues of WW magazine !!

Cool video and song...

This video is to the song Days go By performed by Dirty Vegas.

I think it's a cool song, and i also love the way he dances.

Although I don't know of anyone who walks around with a
huge music player like that anymore.

Bobbi Brown Mineral Make up Giveaway!!!!

When my sister first told me about mineral make up, I was interested because she told me despite it being a loose powder, it gives very natural cover, it doesn't look like you are wearing make up and gives great coverage. The result? Very natural looking skin.

I tried it and not only was my sister right, my skin which usually becomes more and more oily as the day progresses, doesn't when i wear mineral make up foundation!

So I want you to try it too, and thanks to Bobbi Brown Malaysia, I have a giveaway for you!

For a chance to win Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15, email in to
a) full name
b) postal address
c) IC number
d) contact number

The best way I have found to use this make up is first, put a little bit of the product into the lid. Then using a big brush first, buff it onto your face in circles. Then for your whole eye area and on any spots, blemishes or pimples, use a smaller brush, like an eyeshadow brush and brush it onto those areas. If you feel you need more coverage, just add more!

I have also found since using this, my skin doesn't get dry, like how it sometimes does after using powders or foundations. That's because it consists of a vitamin and mineral blend that is triple coated with vitamins, minerals, moisturisers, conditioners and film formers. It's then triple milled into fine particles and that's how the product gets the silky smooth finish.
It's the best thing to use daily!

Email in now! You want this in your make-up bag!

Chanel Pre Fall 2012 collection

The pre fall collections are slowly being shown. This time, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel has gone Indian themed.

As always, beautiful collection and awesome set, but I would have loved to have seen more Bollywood influence in the clothes, like some nice sari themed dresses.

The most touching book I have read and seen...

I found this book on, read the description as follows, and thought 'This sounds interesting. I'll get it..'

Where Children Sleep presents English-born photographer James Mollison's large-format photographs of children's bedrooms around the world--from the U.S.A., Mexico, Brazil, England, Italy, Israel and the West Bank, Kenya, Senegal, Lesotho, Nepal, China and India--alongside portraits of the children themselves. Each pair of photographs is accompanied by an extended caption that tells the story of each child: Kaya in Tokyo, whose proud mother spends $1,000 a month on her dresses; Bilal the Bedouin shepherd boy, who sleeps outdoors with his father's herd of goats; the Nepali girl Indira, who has worked in a granite quarry since she was three; and Ankhohxet, the Kraho boy who sleeps on the floor of a hut deep in the Amazon jungle. Photographed over two years with the support of Save the Children (Italy), Where Children Sleep is both a serious photo-essay for an adult audience, and also an educational book that engages children themselves in the lives of other children around the world. Its cover features a child's mobile printed in glow-in-the-dark ink.

When I received it last week, I didn't expect that it would bring me to tears many times over as I read about the stories of children from around the world.

I will show my children this book one day as I think it is one of the best portrayals of the differents lives people live around the world, how different they are, in both a good and bad way.

Some children were born into privileged families and the places where they sleep reflect this. Then you turn the page and see a totally different photo in a totally different scenario, living in poverty and will probably continue to live in such conditions until the day they pass.

My only disappointment with the book is that there are no children featured from Malaysia.

What are the solutions to the social and economic situations these children face? I have no idea, though I wish I knew. I know there are many others who wish they knew what to do to make this world a better place too.

Til then, my prayers are with them..... always....

Thank you James Mollison for sharing these photos with us. We need to see them.
