Delicious Keto Char Koay Teow You Can Order In KL

This is a backdated post. I was browsing Facebook and came across a post in LCHF Keto  Market group about a hawker stall that fries Keto Char Koay Teow or keto fried flat noodles. This coffee shop is called NSV and is located at Old Klang Road.

So after seeing the plate of mouth-watering keto CKT, I asked hubs to buy it for me on his way back from work. He passes by this area daily. Ta-da….this is my plate (box) of keto char koay teow that is full of ‘wok hei‘. This plate of fried konjac noodles is full of flavour and taste.

It has beansprouts, egg and cookles. This keto CKT is RM13 a plate. Costly eh? I guess it is ok once in a blue moon.

Here is a pic of the coffeeshop that I got from the internet. If you are in the area and would like to give it a try, check out address below.

Nourishing Soup For The Soul

When I saw my friend, Shireen sharing about the Beacon Seaweed Chicken Soup, I decided to try it.  Available at Beacon Mart, Shopee and Lazada, this frozen chicken soup tastes like pure chicken soup that we boil ourselves.

A packet of this ready-to-cook chicken soup consists of seaweed chicken breast/carcass, dried squid, kohlrabi, energy water and salt. It is wholesome and rich in essential nutrients. The chicken meat come from chickens that were fed with specially formulated chicken feed that contains a special blend of seaweed, moringa leaves, probiotics from Japan, Chinese herbs, proteins, trace elements and vitamins.  These chicken are free from chemicals, hormones and antibiotics.

It is great for busy adults like me. Whenever I feel like having some soup for dinner, I just need to thaw the vacuum packed soup, then boil a pot of water and steam this pack for 15 mins. Then pour it out into a bowl and it is ready to drink.

Sometimes I would empty the whole packet into a pot and add some vegetables, tofu, fu pei (fried beancurd) and fishballs, and bring everything to boil. I love the taste of this wholesome soup.

Each pack weighs about 500ml and cost RM6. There are many other chicken products available at Beacon Mart such as raw beacon chicken, Seaweed Chicken Pure Essense, Eggs, Wanton, Whole Leg Herbal Chicken and many more. Check them out today for a healthier choice.

Hiking At Bukit Dinding

During the recent Hari Raya holidays, my friend, Elaine asked me to stay over at her house so that she can bring me for a hike at Bukit Dinding near her place. It sounded exciting as I have not been hiking since the pandemic. So off I went to spend a night in her house and next morning we woke up pretty early and left the house at 7am.

Bukit Dinding is a short drive from her place. That morning was pretty cooling and quiet as it was the Raya holidays and not many people went hiking.

This colourful wall greeted us when we arrived at the entrance. What I did not expect after we passed this is an uphill climb for about 15 minutes or so. My friend did not tell me what to expect and I thought this hike on the tarmac and cemented road is an easy walk. Well, to her is easy peasy because she is a pro hiker who joins marathons and ultra-trail marathons.

Going up, up and up. I was hoping that this ascending path would end after passing the corner but it did not! I was literally gasping for air here.

Alas, after 45 minutes or so of climbing, we reached the peak of Bukit Dinding which is a telecommunication tower

This climbing trail has a length of about 4.7km and an elevation of 246m.  After snapping a few photos, we went down. Elaine took me the other hiking trail that she goes to. I wasn’t wearing a suitable pair of hiking shoes and it was rather slippery the forest trail. I fell down while making my way down some rocks so we decided to turn back out.

We also saw a wide forest trail for bikers and for safety reasons, hikers are not allowed to go into that trail as the bikers may be careening down and cannot avoid the hikers

I was pleasantly surprised to see that we almost did 10k steps that morning.

  Saw this beautiful tall tree while coming down.

After we were done, Elaine brought me to a coffeeshop for some coffee and breakfast. Overall it was an enjoyable hike and we got to catch up on our chat. I hope to follow Elaine to explore the forest trail at Bukit Dinding or Bukit Pau nearby.

Branded Clothes Shopping For Less Again

A little update about my shopping from the stall in my neighbourhood where I could get branded clothes for less.  This is actually a back-dated post as I have bought these items last year. Some of the gems that I managed to get hold of are as follows:-

A black and white long sleeve cotton top

Yes, they have COS too! I was elated to find one in my size. They only have one piece and I am so glad that I could fit. As you can see, the label is cut because it is not from the original COS store but is actually stock overrun item or a sample.

This is the exact same one selling on their website now.

I also bought a multi-coloured stripe top for missy from COS but I didn’t take any photo.  I found a similar one online.

Then I couldn’t resist another red and pink striped long sleeved top for missy. It is from her favourite brand – Monki. When she saw it, she was happy because she found the same at Monki but it cost like 7 times more than what I paid.

The label is cut too.

Found it on Zalora too.

Just love all these good buys. Retail therapy is the best therapy!

Shapewear Dress Tips: From Office to Party 

Shapewear dresses have increased in popularity and as a result, many women have been looking for them to be used on a daily basis with their services, as well as for parties looking for something more sophisticated. 

Therefore, figuring out how to choose the perfect shapewear dress for each situation can be a very difficult path, but we will help you at this point. 

How to choose the best shapewear dress for the job? 

Choosing the best shapewear dress for work requires consideration of several factors, such as comfort, style and work environment. As the first point we have to determine the level of control you need based on your body type and your personal comfort. Some shapewear dresses offer light control to smooth problem areas, while others provide firm control for more intense body shaping and sculpting. Choose the level of control that best suits your needs and preferences. 

Additionally, you need to be aware that the dresses are breathable. To do this, opt for dress with built in shapewear made from breathable and comfortable fabrics, such as nylon, spandex or elastane. These materials will help keep you cool and comfortable during work hours. 

Also check that the shapewear dress has flat seams to avoid visible marks under your work clothes. Flat seams also provide greater comfort, reducing skin irritation. Another pro is choosing a shapewear dress with a versatile style that can be worn with a variety of work outfits. Opt for designs that have discreet necklines, adjustable straps and appropriate lengths to suit your professional environment. This will help you a lot in the service. 

And also for use at work, it is recommended to choose a shapewear dress in a neutral color, such as black, nude or white. Neutral colors are more understated and can easily be paired with your existing work outfits. 

How to choose shapewear dress for parties? 

Choosing shapewear dresses for parties is a great way to ensure you feel confident and comfortable in your festive attire. In addition to the aforementioned levels of control that for festive events, you may want to opt for shapewear dresses with a firmer level of control to obtain a more sculpted and defined silhouette, you also have to think about the fabrics. 

Therefore, look for shapewear dresses made from luxurious and glamorous fabrics, such as lace, satin or silk. These materials not only provide a luxurious feel but also add a touch of elegance to your party look. For an even more convincing result, choose a shapewear dress with elegant details and necklines that complete your style at the party. 

You also need to choose a shapewear dress in the color that best matches your taste and that also shows what you want to convey to the party, as it is with this that you will show your style and also how you want to look to people. Here you have to see if you want to wear a more midi dress or if you are going to wear the shapewear maxi dress that is one of the main features for the festivities. 

Make sure the shapewear dress is the appropriate length for where you are going. And while it’s important to get a shapewear dress that offers control, it’s also essential to ensure you feel comfortable while dancing and having fun at the party. Choose a shapewear dress that is not too tight or restrictive and that allows freedom of movement. 

Why choose Popilush for these moments? 

With Popilush you can be sure that you won’t have any problems when going out to work or going to a party and all this due to its variety of shapewear dresses. 

In addition to this variety, you will find comfort in the materials that lace slip maxi dress and others are made of, as they define the body without the strongest compression, thus giving you freedom of movement throughout the day you are wearing them. 

Another favorable point are the more basic dresses that can match both your style and also with just a few accessories make a change of scenery, as long as it has some accessories it can be used for work, but with the right accessories you can wear the same for the party. 

So, take the opportunity to get to know this variety and build a closet for all your most special moments.

Welcoming The Year of The Dragon

A backdated post. This Chinese New Year celebration has been a memorable one for me and my family. On the eve of the new year, I was feeling a bit off. My body was tired and I thought it was because I have been cleaning the house and getting ready to welcome the new year.  Then I had very bad acid reflux and I couldn’t even eat the steamboat reunion dinner that night. The following day, hubs drove us back to Ipoh and in the car, I was starting to have a bit of a runny nose. I thought perhaps it was cold and I had the aircond facing me throughout the journey.

I still felt funny the whole day when we celebrated at my cousin’s house, followed by a dinner in a restaurant that night. I popped an antihistamine pill and went to bed. The next day, I felt a bit better but still with runny nose. I met up with my best friends who were back in Ipoh. I felt very tired as the day went by.

The next day, we headed home and I wore my mask in the car for the whole journey as I didn’t want to spread my runny nose to hubs and missy. My body still feel off but I didn’t do a test. The next morning I had to go to work and so I decided to do a test because my sister did a test the day before as she was also unwell and she tested positive for Covid.

Alas, I am not a Covid-virgin (a term coined by my friends) anymore. Since the pandemic, hubs and I have never gotten Covid. Last Chinese New Year, I was sick on Day 15 and I tested myself but was negative. However, I lost my sense of taste and smell for a week. Not sure if the test kit was not accurate or I had gotten another kind of illness.

So I quickly went to the pharmacy to stock up on test kits, cough meds, cold/flu meds, lozenges and Tiger milk mushrooms. Luckily my symptoms were mild. I only had runny nose. I recovered in 3 days after I tested positive. Actually I quite enjoyed myself when I quarantined as I just laid in bed and relaxed with no one disturbing me.

Just when I recovered, my hubs also tested positive. My mother and my other sister also tested positive as we have been together in Ipoh and staying in the same house. I am not sure if I was the superspreader or my other sister who probably got it from her husband, who also tested positive 2 days before Chinese New Year but he quarantined himself.

Luckily missy, my dad, my friends and other relatives were spared. So this Chinese New Year celebration was indeed a memorable one for all of us.

Get Glowing Skin For Your Prom With These Simple Steps

With spring here, it means the school year is coming to an end. This also means that the night that high-schoolers is waiting for, is right around the corner. It is none other than Prom night. As this is a special occasion for most high school students, many would want to look their best during this important event. The girls will go all out to find the perfect dress with shoes and accessories to match.

If you are going to prom and want to be camera-ready for this important night, you would need more than a great outfit. What you need is healthy and glowing skin. Having healthy skin is the best accessory for any occasions, whether you have makeup on or not.

How To Have Healthy Skin Before Prom Night

When it comes to preparing your face for prom, you can start with a simple routine. Choose products that are good for your skin type. Establishing a consistent routine is important for healthy and glowing complexion.

Cleanse Your Face

Try a cleanser that is gentle enough to remove dirt, oil and makeup from your skin. Use single use face towels to pat your skin dry after cleansing. Avoid using regular towels as they absorb water and remain damp for hours, and this is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. When you re-use towel, you are transferring these harmful micro-organism to your face and may cause breakouts and acne.

Alternatively, you can also use the disposable face towel from Ditoibeauty to clean your face with a cleanser. Wet the disposable face cloth and wring out excess water. Then pour some cleanser onto the towel and gently massage your face using circular motions. Then rinse your face and use a new disposable face cloth to dry your face.

Moisturize Your Face

Apply moisturizer within minutes after cleansing for optimum absorption. Massage the moisturizer onto your damp skin, to help retain the moisture on the skin’s surface.

Mask it

One or two week before prom night, use a mask that is ideal for your skin’s needs. If you have oily or blemish prone skin, go for clay masks as they will help to reduce oil and dry out acne. For normal or dry skin, go for masks that soothe and hydrate the skin. Applying mask a few weeks earlier before prom night will allow the build up of color on your skin gradually.

Drink Enough Water

Water is essential if you want beautiful glowing skin. Dehydration can cause your face to look dull so make sure you drink lots of water weeks before prom so that your skin is healthy for the big day.

Sleep and More Sleep

Having lack of sleep is bad for the skin. It can leave you with dark circles and eye bags. When you sleep, your skin will restore and renew itself to give it a gorgeous glow. Have an appropriate sleeping schedule of at least 8 hours a night before prom.
