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!

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

Just a short note

Hello hello!
Was away for the past few days hence the silence here ;)
Went Bangkok with my bff and was so tired and exhausted! But enjoyed ourselves very much.. It's a pre birthday celebration trip for us as we are born in October...
Shall catch up with you guys soon!
p/s: SK and Wenn, I have received the gifts sent from you both, million thanks ya! ^^
