The bad news is that we can never truly run away from these beauty blunders and whether we like it or not, they’re bound to happen every now and then (sometimes during the most inopportune moments, like when you’re rushing to leave your house and your Uber has already been waiting for the last five minutes), the good news however, is that for every mishap, there is a quick fix that’ll have your makeup game back on point within minutes.

Check out these five hacks that every beautyholic should know and while you’re at it, remember to check out Saleduck to score awesome deals on some of the tools and products that you’re going to need as part of your arsenal. Visit its beauty category right here.

Follow me to Borobudur Temple Compounds

During my first visit to Borobudur, I was thrilled with the magnificent aura that surrounded by the oldest temple and it gives peaceful feeling to the visitor. In my second visit, after a hectic year for me, I managed to found my inner peace at there. The aura definitely did not fade!

This is my second time here to Borobudur and yet I am still enthusiastic to visit. It almost feel like when I was there, I would be able to find my inner peace and forget about the worries that I have. My first visit to Borobudur last year was spectacular. This is one of the destinations that I am looking forward on this trip! During the last trip, it was easier to take picture and with lesser crowd, but for this time, we went on a public holiday. It was super hard for us to capture a satisfied one. Thank god I have my pro photographer @julian_cheong who managed to take some nice shots for me even in this circumstances haha.

It's absolutely amazing, worth every penny. To see all the splendor of the largest Buddhist in the world we were transported from our hotel at 4am. Very early but worth it. It took us about 45 minutes to arrive and the sunrise happened at about 5:25 in the morning.

The Shorea, Seremban : Back to Nature. Forest Getaway in Malaysia

Spectacular view of the rainforest, fresh air, and tranquil atmosphere, what's not to love?

I recently visited to this villa for team building and it was an awesome experience! 
There are 3 different resorts with such concept within the same area: The Shorea, The Dusun and Awanmulan. The journey to this secluded resort took about 30 minutes from the Seremban city, and about 1.5 hours from KL.

We got ourselves the Villa Shorea & Villa Halia with ample space to fit 9 adults and 1 kid, equipped with private kitchenette, bathroom and balcony of forest view. Good amenities, kitchen utensils and bath towels are provided. It cost us RM2120 for maximum 10 pax to enjoy the villas, additional charges at RM200 for every extra pax added.

Being right next to the Berembun Forest Reserve, this is as close to nature as we can get. For those who are interested, you can also arrange to go for jungle trekking (comes with a fee) or visit the nearby waterfall.

Garuda Indonesia : 6D5N Flight to Medan & Lake Toba! ( North Sumatra )

Glad to fly again with Garuda Indonesia this year to a new destination in Indonesia, Medan. I adore Garuda Indonesia not only because they received ‘World's Best Airline Cabin Staff’ in 2016 (third consecutive year ) , but also awarded as 5-Star Airline by Skytrax. They're the 7th airline in the world to earn this prestigious award.

I'm excited to be invited to take the first flight flying to Medan with another three lovely bloggers - Brianna, Liting & Mongchin. We were gathered in Changi Airport early in the morning as there were a warm-welcomed opening event - ‘World’s Best Cabin Crew’ dancing by Garuda Indonesia.
