The return

Hello! Seems like I only update my blog once a year, then I go disappearing again. Lol.

When I first typing here, it feels just like 6 years ago where I love blogging a lot, sharing stuff online and so on.. As time passes by, busy with exams, then work. I don't really have the time to blog much. Now there is an app called Dayre where we can update stuff daily. Like a mini dairy. I also abandon that though it is very convenient to use. But I feel it's hard to check back history =p

Anyways, I'm thinking of blogging again when I'm free. Hopefully I have the time to blog =p Excuses. Haha well, lots of stuff happening this year. So much to blog about. So, stay tuned. ;)

Skin Whitening Homemade Recipe

I've been applying yogurt with honey on my face for 3rd time now and I can see so much difference on my face already. My skin is so much smoother n fairer now, making my body looks darker compared to my face. I gotta find a recipe for body whitening. Yogurt, honey, oatmeal, milk, and lemon are good for skin whitening.

I found a simple easy recipe for body whitening. All you need is milk and lemon. Mix both equal qty, then use a body sponge and scrub the mixture on the body for 10 mins then rinse. Can do it every two days and you'll see the result! For more info read the link below. Have fun trying!

Yogurt Honey Oatmeal Facial Mask

Another simple easy DIY beauty tips of the day! I found out that not only yogurt can be used, but also add on some honey and oatmeal as well. There's lots of benefits of yogurt as facial mask. It help to moisturize, reduce discoloration, relieve sunburn, fight acne, and prevent premature aging, brightens the skin, reduces redness, fades scars, tightens pores, treats irritated skin and many more. Not only that, it also contains lots of protein, calcium, vitamin D and probiotics that is good for our skin.
  1. Moisturize -  Yogurt helps smooth and exfoliate skin. Its lactic acid is a natural cleanser and gentle scrub. You'll get a soft and glowing skin! Apply yogurt on face and leave it for 10 minutes before rinse.
  2. Reduce discoloration - Yogurt has a mild bleaching effect on the skin when used over time. It is good for uneven skin tone due to too much sun exposure and also for age spots. Mix a little lemon juice into the yogurt and apply them on face, leaving them for 20 minutes then wash. 
  3. Fight acne - Yogurt has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, making it ideal for acne-prone skin. It is also rich in zinc, which is commonly known to aid in the healing of acne blemishes.
  4. Prevents premature aging - Yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that helps to smooth rough, dry skin and prevent premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. It will also help to dissolve dead skin that is accumulating in the pores causing a dull and cakey appearance. The lactic acid will also close large pores giving skin a younger appearance. Just add some olive oil.
Now for the recipe. It's simple. There's several as below. It's up to you what you wanna mix with =p

1 teaspoon yogurt, 1 teaspoon honey. Leave on for 10 mins.
1 teaspoon yogurt, 1 teaspoon honey. Little bit of lemon juice/olive oil. Leave on for 20 mins.
1 tablespoon yogurt, 1 teaspoon honey, 1 tablespoon oatmeal. Leave on for 30 mins.


Note: Watch out if your skin starts to break out or itch. Some people are allergic to yogurt. If your skin gets redness or breaks out, stop using the yogurt treatments.

Check out BubzBeauty review on her face condition after 3rd time using. Amazing result!

Pantai Kerachut

A fun and adventurous weekend for us! I've been wanting to go to Pantai Kerachut and enjoy the beaches there! How to go? Straight all the way to Batu Ferrenghi & Teluk Bahang until the end of the road, you'll reach Penang National Park. That's the entrance to the hiking place.

www.forestexplorers.com

There's two ways you can reach Pantai Kerachut. Either hike for almost 2 hours which is super tiring, or by boat about 15 mins and cost RM80/boat (so better gather more group of people). I wanna hike and check out the forest and the nature along the way. I forgot to take picture of a big map which state how long it takes to reach a certain location. Pantai Kerachut takes about 1 1/2 hours if not mistaken. But our whole journey took about 1 hour 45 mins.


After 5-10 mins walk


2920m to Pantai Kerachut


Sound Zone.. Lol I just know there's one part which has very loud insect noises.



 
The trails.. The roots make it easier for us to walk.


Bi carrying my school bag =p

Lots of nice trees to see here!
 
 smooth tree like painted


1320m to Pantai Kerachut after 45 mins.

Actually I was kinda scared while hiking. There's not much people around hiking. There were some group of people but they disappear quickly. So scary if there's any wild animal come out of no where.


This is interesting!

 

After 1 hour and 15 mins. 600m to Tasik Meromiktik, 500m to Pantai Kerachut. Actually if you wanna visit the Meromictic Lake, should head towards Pantai Kerachut way, you'll straight reach the lake already. We wanted to go to Meromictic first then only exit to Pantai Kerachut. But actually we just passed by the other end of the lake which we don't even realize! There's a fallen rest hut by the lake. When I saw it, I was like Yay we finally arrive! Then I saw the fallen rest hut, Is this the place? Abandon already? Maybe that's not the place. So we continue our journey.

More lakes in the forest.


Saw a weird standing rock!



This is nearby the place we saw the Meromictic Lake with broken rest hut.

This is the fallen/broken rest hut we passed by earlier! So dry!

And this is scary!

Monster really exist in the forest? It says 6 feet tall creature with dark complexion and hairy body.



After almost 2 hours of walking, suddenly we reached the beach! We both stunt for a moment. Where the hell is that lake?! Why are we on the beach already? Did we just passed the lake without noticing? But there's no signboard on what lake is it that we saw earlier. I remembered I search online there's a signboard showing Memorictic Lake. Confused and walked around the beach asking people. We have to walk further to the right and we'll find the lake.




There is it! Saw a signboard of the lake at last! Turtle crossing.. I think the building behind is the place people can see a lot of baby turtles. Sigh I totally forgot about this place. Gotta go again second time to see turtle! I'm so lazy to hike almost 2 hours again T.T

We just rested on the beach after hiking for so long. So exhausted and hungry! There's nothing to eat here. So early morning I had made us tuna sandwiches! Eat and enjoy by the beach. Love the moments!


Pano shot from the place we're seating and eating our sandwiches.




Scrubbing my leg, nature foot spa. LOL my feet feel so much smoother after walking on the beach for so long.

Let's enjoy the view here! I brought my Holga 135BC for a few shots too! 10 more pictures to go before I can take them to develop and scan! Cant wait to see those pictures!








Woah look at the boat! Haha strong waves.


Le footsteps


The big foot!

Now it's time to walk to the lake! There's no shade here and the sand is super burning hot like walking on fire!!





Well, what's so special about this Memorictic lake. This happens like only once a year. There's only 3 places in Asia have this. One is in Pantai Kerachut (Penang), another one in Jellyfish Lake (Palau) and one in Zigetancuo Lake (Tibet).



In this lake, there's two layers of water that doesn't intermix. The salty sea water and fresh clear water from rain and five small rivers, remain separated. Salty sea water with more density is at the bottom layer while the lake water less dense remain on the top. The lake water temperature is cool while the sea water remains warm. I not sure what the two colours above means. Lol




Earlier if you follow the sign to Pantai Kerachut 500m, you'll exit from the bridge.


The fallen/broken rest hut we passed by earlier.




Amazing that there's a fish here at the top layer of the water.


DJ was here at the Meromictic Lake! Watermark the picture by putting him there =p


Now it's time to go back! Gotta walk all the way to the jetty and it's super tiring to walk on the beach cos our feet keep sinking into the sand. I'm so exhausted and ask him to drag me along. It's even more tiring than 2 hours of hiking and walking in the forest! Gahh!


Since the boat is RM80/trip, we notice a group of 6 people also heading to the jetty and the boat is going towards them. Adding both of us will make it 8 ppl. So RM10 each! Thank god. Else we'll be sitting there waiting for another group of people.


On the boat without safety life jacket and the boat was jumping on the sea so crazily till I almost flew off! T_____T So hot till I can't really place my butt on the seat.


Trying hard to take some shots on jumping boat while grabbing tight to the boat hoping I don't fall off. Haha


Manged to get a shot of this stone tortoise! Nice rite? Damn boat was so fast till I got no idea what was I shooting as I can't look at my camera lcd under bright sun. Just keep snapping all the way.


Another shot of a crocodile head on jumping boat. The one and only shot I have. Thank god it's clear enough. Haha


Reached the jetty after 15 mins on jumping boat. Make me so dizzy and sick.



It was almost 1PM. Time for lunch! We head to Bora Bora by Sunset Bistro. Opens at 12pm but we're the only customers haha usually full house in the evening.


Too hot to go to the beach again.


Bora Bora special fried rice.Yummy! About RM8++.


Aglio Olio Spaghetti. Not bad too.

We both enjoyed a lot and had a fun weekend. Don't have to spend so much and go to beaches at other place for a nice weekend =p Wish to go to other clearer and beautiful beach next time! ^^



More pics I found on Memorictic Lake when it's dry. Will go there again when it's dry hehe
