Self-help gurus and Zen Buddhists tell us to live in the present, doest it matter?
Because when you are happy, enthusiastic, absorbed, in love, you plug into the power of Universe. When you are dissatisfied, distracted and depressed, you are unplugged, and when you are unplugged, you are powerless to create anything better.
Your key to a better life is to feel good Now. Not next week, not when you pay off the apartment, not when peace is declared in the Middle East.
Every moment that you spend regretting the past or fearing the future is an affirmation that life is lousy, and so you get more of "lousy".
Here's another reason to live in the present:
The future doesn't exist. You have no future!
Of course, we pretend it does. We pretend that time is like a piece of string where the past is on once end, the future is on the other end, and the present is in the middle. Not so.
All we have is an eternally unfolding present moment. The only time you will ever meet the future is when it becomes NOW. And when the future is now, it is not the future. There is no value in waiting for something doesn't exist.
It is useless telling yourself " I Will be rich, I Will be happy, I Will be successful."
When your mind is in the future you are spinning your wheels.
Your power is in the present: " I AM rich, I AM happy, I AM successful."
I AM that I AM. The two most powerful words in the Universe are, "I AM"
You are perfectly designed to handle present moments. Remind yourself, " Right this second I have everything I need. I choose to enjoy THIS moment." Every second that you live in the present moment is an affirmation that life is good, and that feeling goodness showers more goodness to you.
SILKYGIRL is no stranger to me as I was attracted by their colourful packaging a few years ago. I've always been curious about this brand and now I have the opportunity to try and share about their new Expert Brow Slim Liner and Moisture Boost Lipcolor Balm!
Expert Brow Slim Liner
As you girls know, your brows frame your face and the way they are shaped, changes the way you look.
After the season of family reunions and festivities, a time of happiness and feasting might lead some of you to put on weight due to overeating.
Potato chips, chocolates and fried chicken wings are so irresistible that you find yourself postponing your diet plans again and again, only to realize that you could not fit into your favourite jeans anymore. If you are nodding to the above mentioned situations, then Borsch Med’s Bind&Block FAT is here to put your mind at ease.
Did you know that excess fat intake if not being converted to energy, will be stored in adipose ( fat ) tissues, resulting in weight gain?
Have you ever heard of good stuff aint easy to get nor find? Tank is located at the end corner of the cafe court in Emporium Melbourne.
The best fish and chips I've had so far. They use only local (Aussie or New Zealand) fresh fish and the fans are flocking to Lygon St for Tank’s refined take on the classic.
You may probably hear that the famous cicerellos from Western Australia is the best fish and chips found in Australia. Personally I'm a huge seafood junkie and I love my food fried or grilled (typical asian), over the cloud I've tried food that are over battered or has a strong smell aroma, let me tell you tho with what is up on TANK'S pan, without a second doubt you better eat it as fast just like grinch steals christmas. The spices are just extremly good! Definitely worth a visit with no regrets.
And, I would like to say that they have the best Tartar Sauce to side with just like how peanut butter and jelly are meant for each other .
February is for Melbourne!

More than a great wardrobe or a skilled hand with make-up, glowing skin turns heads. Some people win the hereditary lottery when it comes to good skin. But genes are just the starting point. Beautiful skin is also about good skin care habits practiced day in and day out.
Overuse of products is the biggest mistake people make in their skincare regime. Using a lot of different ingredients can be irritating, and some ingredients cancel out each other's benefits. I have then stick to Kiehl's skincare for about two months, I'm seriously in love with their skincare range and ready to share it.
One thing is for sure, Kiehl's is a great brand with no frills, no fuss high quality skincare products.
Sunblock / Sunscreen :
Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defence SPF 50 PA+++ UVA
Price: sgd $60-75 for 30ml
Read my previous post:
[Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Review ]
Texture: Ultra Light, milky texture, Super easy to apply
Oily/Greasy: 0/10 ( Not at all ^^ )
Still my best sunscreen ever as it is Ultra Light in texture and super easy to apply. This is an Oil-Free, Fragrance-Free, Colorant-Free lightweight formula that provides broad spectrum protection against 90% skin aging. I love natural skincare if you know me. Hehe! If you haven't got a sunscreen that satisfied you, Try this !! ^^
Oh yea, It's time to restock. ( The tube is almost gone as you can tell from the picture ) I've been using this since six years ago and this still suits me the best in my hot and humid country. But of course, I'll apply a thin layer of water sports sunscreen that is above SPF50 which comes with water resistant if I'm ready to expose myself under the sun especially going to the beach or playing some water sports.
