5 simple ways to worry less and stay positive

THINK POSITIVE! Oh what a cliche it seems, doesn't it? Easy to say, yet difficult to fulfil for many out there. And yes, of course including myself at times too. I have my times of anxiety and stress, and wallowing myself in negativity isn't helping a single bit. Here are some little tips to help yourself feel better! While I may not be an expert in this field, these have helped me felt better at times, and I hope that it will help you too.

#1  Note down the things you are grateful for

A friend of mine taught me about this, she asked me to write down the things I am grateful about, including all the small things no matter how insignificant it may seem. It might seem like a really simple idea, but this helps to remind myself of how I should be thankful for the little happy things in life, and any worries or obstacles are just temporary. When you're grateful, you tend to complain less too.

If you are feeling artistic, you can even write down happy notes, roll it up and place i…

Som Tam at Orchard Central | Durian Curry, Mentaiko Squid and Instaworthy Drinks

Durian and Curry are both my well-loved flavours, but combining both into one dish? It's honestly my first. Curious, excited yet slightly doubtful were my reactions when I found out about the existence of Durian Curry at Som Tam, a modern Thai fusion restaurant located at Orchard Central.

But if you're not a fan of durians, don't click away first! Som Tam offers a promising range of mouthwatering Thai delicacies, and I'm not even kidding, they tasted fantastic!

The drinks already got us excited with such colourful and vibrant tones, perfectly ready for the 'gram. Phones come first, don't they?

From my previous experiences, sad to say,  I tend to have this impression that colourful drinks = overly sweet taste. But it wasn't the case for Som Tam. The drinks were pretty refreshing, especially the Blue Cha with Coconut ($6.80). It had a really similar taste to the freshly opened coconuts at Jumbo or Long Beach Seafood restaurants, except that this is way pretti…

LOFREE Four Seasons Mechanical Keyboard Review

Anyone else likes the typewriter sound like I do? Not sure if it's a strange fetish but I've always enjoyed listening to the sound of keyboard as I type away on my computer aggressively. #ASMR? 
Gone are the days when people use typewriters for typing documents. Inspired by this concept, the Lofree Four Seasons Mechanical Keyboard is cleverly designed to create a colourful and retro look to match with our tech gadgets in the modern days of the present. 
It comes in 4 seasonal colours - Aestival Blue (Summer), Autumnal Grey (Autumn), Hibernal Black (Winter) or Vernal White (Spring)(currently unavailable)which are simple and versatile with a touch of glamour. 

Before you doubt its usefulness, ask yourself: What is the amount of time you spend on mobile or computer gadgets daily?
Personally I would say, most of the time except for eating, sleeping, baking and going out. 
I tend to avoid using my phone at home, simply because it's a lot more inconvenient to type on such a s…

Pooltime Cafe at Bangkok | Playing with Raccoons

Bangkok is not short of unique animal cafes and Pooltime Racoon Cafe proved this point well! Obviously this has to be in my travel itinerary because I need to fill up my list of the different types of animals I have interacted with. Raccoons are not easily available anywhere else especially in Singapore so this was a rare opportunity for me to experience playing with Raccoons. Pooltime Cafe wasn't located near the popular areas, but Grab is really convenient and cheap, hence it wasn't really a problem for us. 

We arrived shortly after their opening hours and we might just be the first customers as it was completely empty. The theme was kept to minimalistic pink, blue and white colour tones and it was quite relaxing to chill at this cafe with a cuppa coffee. Judging by the lack of customers (not sure if its because of the non peak hours), this cafe is rather underrated in my opinion, and it could be due to the lack of online exposure as compared to other prominent cafes, such …
