Hi loves!

I've been embarking on a healthier diet for the past 2 weeks and I've decided to share my journey and tips for you fitness and health junkies!

The "New Year, New Me" syndrome has been quite effective and also the fact that I'm actually seeing results have kept me pretty much on track so far.

I have been having breakouts for the past few months and I hope by the end of February, my skin would be completely cleared. I can already see results so I'm pretty pumped up!

Anywayyy, let's start with breakfast!

So recently I've been making my own overnight oats. Previously, my breakfast consisted of either nasi lemak, thick milo + biscuits or simply nothing at all. Not surprisingly, my skin suffered. I did some research on ideas for really hearty yet healthy and simple breakfast and overnight oats is up there on my list.

It's so easy to make and so good. Here's the recipe for a basic overnight oat variant:

Overnight Oats

  • 4 tbsps of rolled oats
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • Unsweetened soy milk

Mix them altogether in a mason jar and leave it in the fridge overnight. And ta-dah! Your very own jar of goodness in the morning.

I usually prefer to eat a lot in the morning because... well, because I can. So rolled oats is a good source of energy and keeps me satisfied until lunch.

I switch between milk + greek yogurt and unsweetened soy milk. I prefer unsweetened soy milk rather than cow's milk because its dairy-free. But it is more expensive so I alternate between them. I think one of the most important things to cut out from my diet (at least for now) is dairy food because anything dairy-based tends to cause acne.

Also, chia seeds are really something new I've been incorporating because it has so many goodness. It's a super food. It's a beast.

Grocery list:

So above is typically the ingredients you should buy for a basic variant of overnight oats. I forgot to include honey in the picture but yeah, buy honey. Later on, you can build up on the above and get fancy with other stuff like peanut butter.

Basically the only stuff you would need to replenish weekly is the milk/soymilk/greek yogurt. Other than that, the rest can last you a pretty long time. And because its so easy to make, I have been making overnight oats for at least 3 out of 5 days a work week.

If you like, you can shred some dark chocolates into your overnight oats or add some blueberries or slices of banana for that finishing touch.

So that's it for today. I hope you guys give it a try because I feel having a good, healthy breakfast is a great way to start a day :)

[VIDEO] Spicy Korean Ramen Challenge ft. My Sister!


Omg, watching back on the video makes me salivate just thinking about the ramen. But I'm going to be staying away from this ramen until my skin clears up (at least until end of January).

I hope you guys enjoy the video. I know I'm still a VERY amateur-ish YouTuber and there are tons of improvement that can be made so hopefully my other videos will get even better :)

I welcome you to join this journey with me!

So today is 03.01.2017. I know this is a bit old-school but my first post is you guessed it, resolutions.

I think its really important to have resolutions or goals to look forward to and strive to achieve in life. Isn't that what life is about? :)

This year I shall resolve to:


I always have a tendency to not hear people out and interrupt them with my thoughts. And this attribute also lends to me making hasty and impulsive decisions.

So whenever I find myself in that situation, I resolve to STOP, BREATHE IN AND OUT SLOWLY, THINK and DECIDE WHETHER MY INPUT IS ACTUALLY VALUABLE TO THE HUMAN RACE *god sometimes i just need to learn to keep my mouth closed*


This point ties in a bit with point 1. My brain is constantly on overdrive.  Like it's always jumping around with ideas and things I want to say and do ALL AT ONCE. It is a boon at times (when it comes to getting inspiration and motivation) but when it comes to actually executing the plans I have and sticking to them on a daily basis, this is where I fail miserably.

Consistency literally applies to all aspects of your life: fitness goals, diet goals, whatever other goals you want to achieve.

I've been reading and watching a lot on productivity recently and for me, having a planner is super important because I get to jot down my plans and goals.

After setting out your goals, plan out how you are going to achieve those goals. Break them down to into small steps and do those steps consistently until they become ingrained in you. Goals change you, because you mould yourself to how you envision yourself when those goals are reached. You're gonna love the results ;)


Yes THIS is so important. I've been guilty of the above way too many times. But that shall CHANGEEE.

Because I really believe that the more we complain and rehearse about how bad a certain someone is or how bad your day was or how nothing is going right with life, the more the Universe will give you those kinds of unwanted experiences.

I know it's really tough to stop complaining especially since sometimes you just feel down in the dumps and all you wanna do is rant. On and on and on, to every single soul you meet, every day. We have to realise how dangerous that is because we're hard wiring those negative thoughts into our belief system.

I think ranting for a bit is okay. But after that, it's so important to STOP and move on.

One way to kill this habit is to just force a ban on certain topics that strike a bad chord in you and START telling a NEW story on what you would actually like to happen instead.What you look forward to in life etc.

Write affirmations and ALWAYS practice self-love. Never put yourself down or blame yourself because, damn you're worth it. Know that and embrace the fact that you are on the way to activating ALL that you were made to be.

So, I resolve to stop talking and rehearsing OLD stories and start CREATING NEW stories.

Whatever happened in 2016 has passed. This year, let's make it the best year of our lives :)
