Syahirah Korean Secrets White Glow Brightening Essence Review

  This will be my first time trying out Syahirah brand skincare. The one in my hand here is Syahirah Korean Secrets White Glow Brightening Essence. I have tried many essences from different brands before this. So, I was a bit skeptical about whether this one is just the same as others or different. Hahaha...to me all essence is the same.  I always have 3 skin problems : * Uneven skin tone * Dark spot pigmentation * Dry skin If I end up using the wrong serum or essence my skin will become super dull and make me look unhealthy and so sad. aisshhh... So, I am quite selective to try out such skincare. Worst if it irritates my skin. People! do a patch test on the other part of your skin before jumping into applying any skincare to your face or you may end up looking like a beast if it doesn't suit your skin. Anyway, today I am going to write a post about my honest review of Syahirah Syahirah Korean Secrets White Glow Brightening Essence for you. When Syahirah Glow Essence reached me, I

How To Determine Car Affordability Based On Salary

  Reality checked! To be honest, Malaysia's public transportation is beyond convenient for some of us. This causes us to get another way of transportation such as Car, Motorcycle or Bicycle. The motorcycle seems not so practical for some of us, especially women because it seems dangerous and our weather climate is unpredictable. As for bicycles, the specific lane is not enough. Either inconvenient at all or poor maintenance and most of the time the cyclist is prone to danger due to ruthless motorcyclists. For the majority of us, we are left with no choice but to get a car, Although, Malaysia's traffic jam is famous for being horrendous.  Some of us end up spending too much on expenses just to own a car. Many end up trying to fulfil their dreams to get a car beyond their affordability. This ends up becoming a burden. Many forget, that buying a car is just about an instalment payment. There are many other expenses to add in such as - maintenance, repairs, insurance and road tax.

I don't really drink a sugary drink. I prefer black with no sugar for my coffee. I chose plain water over a sugary drink. My homecooked food with no sugar added. Why? Why? The Doctor's explanation was easy, your parent may have diabetes. This is inheritance. I was like...Duh!!!! I prefer monetary inheritance rather than bad genes.  The doctor said not time to be too upset over this. I give you 3 weeks to reverse this since you are confident, that you are leading a healthy lifestyle. No medication will be prescribed at this moment. Please come back for the test again in 3 weeks' time.  So...this is like, I was given a second chance? God Bless! I went back home with a sworn to do a very strict diet. At the same time, I read there is an Ayurveda method to drink curry leaves powder with warm w
