Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold

To all the adventurers, trailblazers, risk takers and ultimate survivors this book is for us. Yes, plural!

I started reading this book sometime in August while vacationing at the beautiful beaches in Phuket. At first, I’m kind of disappointed with myself because I’m not good at deciphering flashback scenes in books or in movies. So I read the book slowly and mostly outdoors –sitting in a hammock on our hotel’s patio.

It’s simple but covers pretty much everything about adventure, mystery, history and intrigue. As the writer puts it, it’s a story of more twists and turns than a rollercoaster ride. I love how the main young character breaks out of the conventional gender role to be in her badass self by setting off on a seriously ridiculous and a bit hilarious adventure by flying her own De Havilland Beaver seaplane. It’s such a lovely series, one I’ll definitely read it to Chloe at an early age. Kitty Hawk’s boundless curiosity and knack for overcoming challenges or getting herself into all kinds of risky adventures is a great avenue to ignite children’s love for nature and adventure, one I definitely feel and would love my Chloe to grow up with.

I’m grateful how this one simple story of a young heroine woke up a side of me that’s hungry and curious for this type of adventure, which now made me starve for more travels, experiences, love for history, mystery and everything else.

My favorite part of the story would definitely be the time when she met the four “pretty-good-looking-brothers-having-a-bit-of-Hugh-Jackman-thing-going-on in all of them. I always have a thing for deep cinematography and these characters feel existent to me in a setting that gives the impression of actually watching a film or being with them. It was chilling and fascinating at the same time. Not to mention the subtitles in the chapters that grips you and keeps you turning pages. 

I just wish these book series make it to the big screen someday, is this too much to ask? J

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
