Beating jet lag


Time flies and it's near to August already! I bet some of you have started planning for year end trip.. :) no doubt travelling is fun and exciting, but sometimes jet lag really make us tired and not able to enjoy the trip... Here I found some useful tips from CLEO magazine on how to beat jet lag, and I'd like to share with you...

Before you go:
1. Reset your international clock
Go to bed a little earlier or later (depending on your destination and time difference) several days before to adjust your sleeping time.
2. Pack ahead
Acoid packing at the last minute. You dont need unnecessary stress that can distract your sleep.

When travelling on long-haul flights
1. Avoid alcohol and caffeine
These 2 are drugs and dehydration is known to worsen jet lag.
2. Breathe in fresh air
Try to get some fresh air if there's some stopover. The re-circulated cabin stale air can cause fatigue.
3. Get some sleep or exercise
Get some rest or do some in-flight exercises (you'll find them in the in-flight magazine)

After arriving at destination
1. Stay out of the hotel room
Dont take a snooze after check-in, it'll make adjusting to local time harder!
2. Avoid heavy meal
Eat just enough to power you through till bedtime.
3. Go sightseeing under the sun
Natural light is believed to help your body adjust to a new time zone.

til then, have a happy trip and a great weekend! :)

  4. Yes, I hate jet lag, it is awful. I used to take motion sickness pill to make me drowsy, and slept throughout the flight.

满点肌

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…
