Getting into exercising alone take a lot of courage and motivation.

This morning, I wanted to do a different environment of doing body combat.

I went to the community club and brought my Lop top with me.

Played the body combat video and follow the steps.

Because I decided not to join any fitness club, I have been doing my own exercise any where I am.

But doing body combat in the public is a challenge. some neighbour may notice and get erritated what you do.

Who really cares right?

My motivation here is.. I really want you to start doing something.

Here is the video again for you to download.

Practice this steps and master it.

Never know you like body combat.

It is free for you.



Always love and care,

Steps In Grooming Your own Car

Would you clean your own car?

I do clean my own car for bunch of reasons.

  1. I can lose some sweats and calories. You may think it is easy to cleaning cars. It looks like easy but it isn’t really.

Before we proceed…

We need some cloth, not just any cloth. It has to be good quality fiber that will not scratch your car.

We also need a Car shampoo- up to you but best is the kind that wil not tarnish your car paint.

I use car shampoo with wax in it. It glides very well on the surface.

We also need a dishwashing liquid and a brush plus cloth to dig inside the Rim. I like it looking very shining.

(After cleaning)

(Before cleaning)

I use dishwashing liquid to get rid of the oily stuff.

Please do not forget to use hand gloves.

You do not want to ruin your hand skin do you?

Aside from shampooing and washing tyers of your car, you need to also chexk for oil and water.

I think car varries its features. You can check your manual. But mostly you can also see it on your dashboard. I am not so technical in elaborating you this. ūüėú

Below image, I am showing you how to open your car where the oil tank located.

That is the point where I can open mine with Audi.

I use a metal stick or can be a long chopstick to measure my oil. ūüėú who cares.

Next, you must also check your water.

I normally add dishwashing liquid to the clean drinking filtered water. I never ever, put any dirt water. Filtered and drinking water is best.

Keeping the car in good condition depends on how you take good care of it.

My car is 8.5 years old.

When my friends ride with me, they often ask how i keep the car smells good and outside looking like brand new.

I do not bring the car for a car wash too.

I always wash it myself.

It helps me loose some calories when doing it.

Lastly, fo not slam your car door! Dahh.ūüė≥

My friends knows not to slam the door when getting out from the car.

Also, I never allow eating inside the car.

Thank you for reading.

If you need some cleaning stuff or Micro fiber cleaning cloth.

Hit like if you do like it.

and join me on – get paid to blog.

#Travel To Scala Dei Turchi – The Most Beautiful Stone

Scala Dei Turchi is located near  Agrigento in Sicily Italy.

Together with some motor bike friend from my husband, we did a motor bike tour almost the entire Sicily.

One of the stop we had was sleeping in Agrigento. 

Agreginto, is the nearest town that you could stay and visit Stairs of the turks or Scala Die Turchi in Sicily Italy.

(On the image, that is Roberto and Scotts. Rich and retired travelling around the world).

From Agrigento town, you can just walk to Scala Dei Turchi. The path is with nicely done steps.

For those who are not so good with their legs, may not be advisable as some of the parts are very stiff while going up to the stone.

This is the beach while you head to the white stone as you see on the background of Roberto and Scotts. It is pretty amazing how the formation of this Scala Dei Turchi of Stairs by the Turks.

According to the history, the origin name was from the Turkish Pirate who have done many invasion in the island.

Because I was fascinated with the view, I totally forgotten to take a solo picture of myself. Specially when I was with bunch of hunks, it is very difficult to do selfie as they think I am crazy.

You would actually feel that it is like a chalk. You know the one we use to write on the green board in school. That kind of feeling. The stone was so powdery like when I touched it.

As you can see in this image with bunch of people walking up and enjoying the stone. Many were just staying and doing sun bath. But most of the people are like passing through like ourselves.

In this image, you see how the stone is being curves by the water. It is just so beautiful.

While you are on the top of scala dei turchi, you see this beautiful view. Very scenic. Blue ocean. A perfect combination of white stone and the blue ocean.

Well, this is one of the travel I can be proud to say.. I did it!

I include here a video here for you to get inspired

Please give me some love..

Love always,

#Health – What you need to know about Hot Lemon Water – Can this prevent Cancer?

Do you really consider hot lemon water to be part of your morning routine? It might help prevent so many kinds of diseases and even maybe cancer.

I have been drinking Hot Lemon Water since 2013. I got introduce to this hot lemon from a customer of my Photography business who is very physically attractive. One day I ask him how to keep our body healthy.

One particular advise that I took from him is to drink hot lemon water every single morning when you can.

I ask, what does lemon do to our body?

He believes that by drinking hot lemon water cleanses our GUT or colon. This part of our body do need cleaning. By drinking hot lemon will cleanse the wall of our colon.

Years before not knowing about hot lemon water, I suffer gastro intestinal pain. When I drink milk or any juices or coffee and tea  in the morning, I will have that pain attack each time. I started to develop a saliva accumulation in my mouth. It was awful!

Believe me or not,

It was hell every morning for me. So I don’t enjoy my breakfast at all and I avoid all the coffee and only drink plain water.

But when I started drinking hot lemon water without any food first thing in the morning, on my first 3 days or so, It felt some kind of cramp on my stomach but not the kind of pain I suffered during gastritis.

Since then, every morning I drink hot lemon water because my gastritis have disappear.

I also felt light and not bloated. I can drink coffee and milk as well as orange juices every morning or whenever I feel like.

My gastritis did not came back until today. I was also asthmatic, I do not have a bad attack of Asthma since I drink hot lemon water. Most of all I can vowel very well.

According to Dr. Guruprasad Reddy BV OSH State Medical University in Moscow Russia.

That drinking hot lemon water can prevent cancer. It must not add sugar. Hot lemon water is beneficial than cold lemon water. From Cold Lemon water, we get only Vitmain C.

Hot lemon water can sustain your health and make you live longer!
Hot lemon water kills cancer cells.
Add hot water to 2-3 slices of lemon. Make it a daily drink.
The bitterness in hot lemon water is the best substance to kill cancer cells.
Hot lemon water can control cancer tumor growth.
Clinical tests have proven hot lemon water works.
This type of Lemon extract treatment will only destroy the malignant cells, it does not affect healthy cells.
 Citric acid and lemon polyphenol inside lemon juice, can help reduce high blood pressure.
Is an ffective prevention of deep vein thrombosis, improve blood circulation, and reduce blood clots.

Dr. Gupta also added that:

01.Often taking late night dinner can increase the chance of stomach cancer.
02. Never take more than 4 eggs per week.
03. Eating chicken backside can cause stomach cancer..
04. Never eat fruits after meal. Fruits should be eaten before meals.
05. Don’t take tea during menstruation period.
06.Take less soy milk, no adding sugar or egg to soy milk.
07. Don’t eat tomato with empty stomach.
08. Drink a glass of plain water every morning before food to prevent gall bladder stones.
09. No food 3 hrs before bed time.
10. Drink less liquor or avoid, no nutritional properties but can cause diabetes and hypertension.
11. Do not eat toast bread when it is hot from oven or toaster.
12. Do not charge your handphone or any device next to you when you are sleeping.
13. Drink 10 glasses of water a day to prevent bladder cancer.
14. Drink more water in the day time, less at night.
15. Don’t drink more than 2 cups of coffee a day, may cause insomnia and gastric.
16. Eat less oily food. It takes 5-7 hrs to digest them, makes you feel tired.
17. After 5pm, eat less.
18. Six types of food that makes you happy: banana, grapefruit,  spinach, pumpkin, peach.
19. Sleeping less than 8 hrs a day may deteriorate our brain function. Taking Afternoon rest for half an hour may keep our youthful look.
20. Cooked tomato has better healing properties than the raw tomato.
(the above statement was pass on to me)
Though I almost eat anything, but I also make sure to avoid some sugary and salty food.
I keep my exercise routine and I sleep well.
I drink only to socialise and not to disappoint my friends.


As mention above about lemon, until today, I am drinking hot lemon water before I have my food each morning. Like a shower every day.
My advise if you happen to like drinking hot lemon water is to make sure that you eat your breakfast food after 5 to 10 minutes. This is what I do and I am sharing you base on my experience.


I never take soda, pack fruit juices or in can.  I am making my own juices. These is very handy to make if you have your food blender or processor like this one .

Get your nutribullet today
Nutribullet and citrus squeezer like this one you see on the image is something I must have in my kitchen.
There are so many citrus and food blend you can find with a good price on AMAZON
My readers and friends,
Nothing wrong if you start your healthy living today.
Start drinking hot lemon water


Squeeze 1 lemon for 1 person
Place the lemon juice into the glass – never use plastic please.
Boiled some water.
Add hot water into the lemon, adjust the temperature of the water so that you are able to drink and drink it all the way while it is hot or warm.
Wait about 5 to 10 minutes then you can eat. The reason for this is to have some time for the lemon to settle inside your colon.
I like to share you this video[purchase_link id=”0″ style=”text link” color=”” text=”″]
Love always,

Steempress in WordPress for Steemit? For Bloggers Who Need Success In Blogging

Have you guys hear about Steempress?

Steempress is a wordpress PLUGIN  that connects any wordpress blog to steem blockchain.

I have use steempress writing post similar to this using wordpress blog.

To be exact, this is my number 5 posts so far and I love it!


  • Easy to install plugin – It will ask you some steemit information like posting key. You also key in your username. You can set tags you want with your post similar to 5 tags when we write steemit posts.
  • Can Schedule Blog Post Using WordPress – I know there are other who does provide the service to schedule post on ¬†But because writing ¬†blog on wordpress using steempress plugin, when we write post and schedule it, it also allow us to then post to steemit. It means that we do not have to worry about not posting on a daily basis both steemit and to our personal blog in wordpress.
  • I CAN HIT MANY BIRDS IN ONE STONE. What I do understand why many of us writing blogs is because we want to sell our product or services or we are engage into some affiliate company and therefore we want to earn more money. By publishing post on social media and we reach many audience.
  • STEEMPRESS upvote our post- steempress has powered up their steemit account to about 1 million Steem Power. I am benefiting from this SP currently. At least I make some few dollars only from Steempress upvote.
    This is the Steem Power amount Steempress have currently.

 Posting your post on steemit using steempress plugin from wordpress- steempress will upvote your post currently. I am not sure how long will they do this.



Yes, I do have some minor issue.  The image below is a screen shots to one of my posts on steemit blog.

I notice that using html coding and inject it to posts writing on wordpress – once I posted it to steemit, it does not show an image. Instead, it shows some funny codes like the one you see above.


So instead using html code that I copy from Amazon affilaite, I use and image of that product and I use a product links and not the html code.


You should no longer edit once your post is been onto steemit. Before clicking on PUBLISH BUTTON, be very sure that post is final and NO MORE MISTAKES.

What do I think about steempress as an overall concept?

I think it can help many bloggers like us. It is a WIN WIN outcome and it is beneficial for everyone who likes blogging?


Because I believed that steemit is here to stay. Using facebook and other social media for posting great content like your post will bring you nothing. On steemit, you earn some dollars, at the beginning may not be that big but as you go along, and as long as you keep posting daily, you will be rewarded.

IT IS FREE TO DOWNLOAD NOW! We may have to pay later… @steempress, please don’t. Please have it free forever.


If you have not created your account on WordPress yet? Please use my link– I am thankful.

How to Capture A Great Professional Looking Photos With Your Phone – Your step by step guide with Images


  1. The Ambient lighting

  2. Phone settings – set to the high resolution

  3. Your Creativity and patient.

We may own a super phone, many may still only use it for calling and texting. Then you come across a beautiful object that you wanted to take a picture.

Yes, you took that shot but it was not good enough for your family and friends to see.

So here I am, will be sharing a bit of my knowledge of How to get a Great professional photos with your phone.

It does not matter what kind of smart phone you are holding or own.

The phone sellers and telco companies have all these features of capturing photos or else, they are lost in translation.

capture a beautiful photos with your phone.

In the image above is a phone. When you capture a specific subject and you want to blur the rest around that subject, you need to touch that subject with your fingers.

On a mobile Iphone it shows a square and the line next to the square where you can select the down and up bar. This apply either you want a darker tone or a brighter tone of your photos. In short, lighting adjustment.

Often times, my images need not to be everything is sharp. Need not to be in the center.

In using DSLR cameras, we do have what we called DEPTH OF FIELD. This means that the sharpness to any part of our image. It can be side, down, up, left, right or center.

But, consider with your own **POINT OF VIEW**. What are you going to emphasise in your image?

So, base on my image above, I am emphasising that the focus or focal point on this image is at the very left. It is facing and communicating to others. But without the need of sharpening the rest of the mickey mouse fruits.

this images is taken in a gloomy day. no lights. but with the phone settings I get enough lights and sharpness

In the image above, the subject is facing down, don’t you think it is a cute one? What do I emphasise here? I am emphasising that the beautiful orange colour Mickey mouse fruit is showing its finger while facing down.


Roughly, on the phone screen shots above, I just showed you an overview of how my phone settings looks like.

During that moment you take the shots, you adjust accordingly on the phone screen. That is what I meant about settings.



In this image, it looks very boring. However, it speaks that it is taken in a busy environment. It has a limited lights. Therefore, your phone adjustment is your only option.

Though I have to tell you… capturing an image using phones cannot compare the best images with DSLR such as these cameras like this:



Here are more example for you in capturing images with your phone.It has a limited lights. Therefore, your phone adjustment is your only option.

If you notice to these 2 images above, what do they have in common? I focus on one particular object. Blur the rest.


If you notice to these above 2 images again, I do not capture the whole plate. I also leave a space to the left side of the images. But notice that almost everything of the fruit is clear and sharp?

What do these images attract your eyes? It’s the colour right? Choosing your subject is another key that your images turn stunning. I love taking pictures with combination of ambient lights, colour and shapes.

Here are white colour images as an example


In these 2 images above, the colour are pretty off. They are all white. But sometimes, even the most off colour or no colour subject can be turn into a beautiful one. That depends  again on how you capture it using your phone.

When I capture an image, even to the most crowded place around it, I can be patient. I wait.

Why I argue with people using built in flush from  phone? It just sucks! Period.

I never, ever, use phone flush when taking any photographs from my phone.

To summarise of that, again, there is no right and wrong in capturing a great and looking like professional images using your phone.

Be watchful.

Be creative.

Be yourself.

One more thing, if you take a selfie image of yourself, try using a selfie stick. look for the ambient light that it faces your face so that your image is bright like you are using a beauty filter.

Also consider final editing your images before posting it. Like cropping, lighting such as contrast or so.

(if you have something to buy from Amazon, please use my link banner below)


What do I use for editing my mobile phone images?

These beauty apps from Amazon does great job.

But if you are on a budget, try photoshop for mobile and camera 360.

I hope to bring you some knowledge today that in return, you can give me some love.

Share this post with your friends in case they need some motivation.

#Travel – How I Climb The Highest Peak of Africa – Kilimanjaro

Almost adventurous human being may want to climb the highest mountain of Africa.

That is Kilimanjaro

climb the highest mountain of Africa


I suffered asthma since young. I believe this  was due to lack of nutrients as I was growing up.

Climbing Kilimanjaro for me would motivate many people to do more beyond their capabilities. It is why I did climb Kilimanjaro for the purpose of.. If others can, I can do it too.

This adventure happens back in 2016. I like to share it with you how tough it was for everyone Climbing the highest mountain of Africa – Kilimanjaro.

Before I began, let me share some information about Kilimanjaro.

Mount Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania.
This is the highest mountain in Africa, and it rises approximately 4,900 meters from its base to 5,895 metres above sea level.

To Be Exact:

Elevation: 5,895 m
Prominence: 5,885 m
First ascent: 1889
Mountain range: Eastern Rift mountains
Easiest route: Hiking
It was first ascend by : Ludwig Purtscheller and Hans Meyer

We sometimes under estimate the mountain, It was a little for me. Perhaps, I am so¬†egoistic, my attitude of “I can” almost¬†kill¬†me when I was climbing¬†Kilimanjaro.

Many people fit or unfit. They have purpose why climbing Kilimanjaro.
But to me, I want to prove that an Ashmatic person can do what they want and fight for this Ashamatic problem.
My experience was never easy. My hubby and I took the Rongai Route where they said it’s not as stiff as Machame route.
Rongai indeed very scenic route but not an easy one. We had 7 days travel days in total.
Each day, we go and walk long hours from one base camp to another until we reach to Kibo Hut where the final campsite prior to Climbing the Uhuru Pick- the highest point of Kilimanjaro.
Kilimanjaro is not a mountain, it is a park. the mountain you will see is Mawenzi and Kibo. Before you can reach to Uhuru pick either you submit first to Gilman’s point or Estella point.
Our climb in Rongai route did pass this point.
From Kibo hut, we start at 12 Midnight, we walk all the way up to a never, never seems to end stiff, rocky and stony, gravels  mountain for long hours. Pole Pole- slow slow is the term our guide told us all the time.
We cannot walk fast as we and many other climbers that night were breathless. Breathless and so cold night.
So windy and minus 20 degree cold. Super cold and super long nite as I could Imagine.
Arrived at Uhuru pick 9:13 am on 16 of September 2016 from Kibo hut, trying to breath and breath.
Headache start to aches. Vomiting, etc. A mix feelings. Breathless, my water got frozen, could not drink, even it was prevented from getting frozen and it’s still is.
I took Diamox to prevent me from geting Altitude sickness, I do not recommend- it just gave a lot of side effects. Before the day of climb, I was already breathless.
Tingling on both fingers and feet. So like a drug addict.
The best thing you do is to prepare yourself healthy much ahead before the climb.
(Prepare yourself… Prepare your body to be healthy as possible as you can be prior in climbing Kilimanjaro).

              As we descend from the pick,

We were cruising the sandy and stoney path dust all over until your nose bleed from sneezing.
Bring yourself a super warm sleeping bag.
DO NOT rent from your agency. It’s not warm enough. Trekking Hero agency however are very helpful.
The people in Africa are all great really.  
climbing Kilimanjaro
At the pick of climbing Kilimanjaro From my left, is Juma the guide, next to me is Markus and Gregory is next to Markus

If  you do climb Kilimanjaro and you make it to the top.. Please come back to me and share with me your Journey.

 Godaddy or Siteground?

Which provider I think is best?

Base on my knowledge of using both provider.

Hope this post will define your decision in choosing a web hosting provider for your website or wordpress blog.

Though take note that there are many web hosting provider out there..

Sometime in March this year 2018, I finally decided to get out from Godaddy.

I started using Dodaddy website and hosting provider since 2005.

(I have recommended numerous clients to Godaddy too and even make a promotional video about how good is godaddy on my youtube channel Elvie Lins).

I create my own website and for some clients as one of my part time.

It got me pissed off as the recent years, when I log in to my members area at go daddy.. A click to a something I need to do does not work and the pop up to buy some additional services from Gadaddy keep showing up on the page.

I also notice that something has change on the member page area. (But please also take note that Godaddy also has good 24 hour support around the world).

I started to search for another WORDPRESS hosting provider and I have compare a few.

To name it: Hostgator, Ipage, wix etc.

I come to conclusion that SITEGROUND is more friendly to me when comes to cost. The support is also awesome because I do not have to make a call and wait for another free online support. Godaddy do not provide WebChat.


wordpress blog hosting



This is godaddy costing for a basic wordpress site. $197 for 36 months



And this is SiteGROUND

wordpress blog hosting provider

So, SITEGROUND for 36 months will cost $156.15 and Godaddy will cost $197.44

wordpress blog hosting and more

But that is not the only point I have had.

My research concluded my decision to get out from Godaddy. This video will explain why?

When choosing your provider, you do not only look for speed Рmeaning how fast your site will be seen in-front of your customer? Too slow, your customer will leave the site. Otherwise, your potential client run away from it. ( I am not that technical person to explain but I have it in my head )

I was always die hard with godaddy.  But things have changed.

And this is where I move out and  went to siteground.
Siteground is one of the many hosting website commended by wordpress.

It is also voted as the fastest loading site. When comes to support, you can chat with them anything on the wesbsite online.

What I show here is only my opinion base on my experience. Please do your own research.

If you happen to go for SITEGROUND can I please ask you to use my referral link. I thank you for your support.
