Stinks no more!

I'm sure we all know what is it like driving/sitting in a new car. I myself feel uncomfortable with the new car's smell and also other bad smell which circulates in the car. Before this, I only knew pandan leaf could helps, but after reading Road Rules section in Cleo magazine, I realised there're many things out there we could utilise! most importantly, there're cheap and easily available!

1. Charcoal
Charcoal works wonder to remove smells... Just place it under the seat and it will bind smells onto it.

2. Tea bags
Place a few tea bags in the door pockets to absorb the odours.

3. Dried citrus peel
Dry lemon peel in the oven at about 300C for about an hour, stuff them into a small cloth bag, place it under the seats and the fresh scent will linger in the car.

4. Vanilla essence
Pour a few drops of vanilla essence onto cotton balls and place them in the door pockets.

5. Pandan leaf
Pandan leaf not only do good on cooking dessert, it also helps get rid of foul odours. Tie a few strips of the leavs into knots and put them under the car seat. Replace them regularly until odour dispel.


  1. Aaa... I only know charcoal and pandan leaf can remove smell. But you listed out more :D

    Good sharing.

  2. Yvonne, yea, it's a good piece of information! ;)

  3. Hey, thanks for the useful tips! Do you have any tips to get rid of cocroaches in the car? Since I have 2 rascals, my car has bundles of junks' debris and crumb that attract 'little gross insects'!:p

    Have a nice day!

  4. Alice, thats pretty irritating huh? I hate cockcroach too! Too bad I have no idea how to get rid of them, if you do, let me know also!

  5. I think newspaper will also help to absorb those stinky smells. I've tried that before (not in the car) but in the toilet. haha... It really absorb those stinky smells. Maybe due to the carbon.

  6. mNhL, oh really? I only know newspaper is used to polish mirror and it really works!
    Thanks for the tips!

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
