7 Hours Of Motorbike Riding To Cameron Highland at 39 Degree heat on 16 March 2019

Hey guys,

The road was heating up driving to Cameron Highland from Singapore via Johor and Kuala Lumphur.

It took us 7 plus hours to get here with short stop in between with petrol and lunch and toilet breaks.

But oh man!😭 It was so hot!

But it is better than rain. Definetly!

Once we got off the highway, driving through the widing small road up to Cameron Highland, it was a relief! Much cooler but oh man, there were hundreds if Motor bikes and cars going and oncoming traffic too.

Thankful we arrived safe..

We stayed at a reasonable price and good hotel, not in town but near in nature.

Upon arrival, put all things in the hotel and we had super fresh strawberries right in.

Strawberries season now in cameron highlands. This is the purest no sugar added strawberry juice you can get.

We head then to grab something to eat, we had indian delicious meal.

Above is the Night market that open only on Saturday night.

Start at 8 Pm and close at 11pm.

I have seen this purple corn for the very first time here in Cameron Highlands.

Benefits of Purple Corn, It contains super high in Antioxidant. Purple Corn expresses one of the deepest purple shades found in the plant kingdom, this vibrant purple corns or grains being indicative of the kind of antioxidants it contains anthocyanins. Anti-Inflammatory. Lowers Blood Pressure. Kidney Healthand Eye Health.

The next time you see one, you have to try it. It taste milky and sweet. You do not have to cook the real organic sweet corn.

The second fruit or plant that I see for the first time is SEA COCONUT here in Cameron Highlands.

I taught that sea coconut must live in the sea? It is a plant?

I have eaten a sea coconut before and it was crunchy like the palm coconut.

Sea coconut is white and it is like a peanut but like a jelly too.

The real sea coconut can be eaten raw.

Well, today 17 March, we are going to sea the strawberry farm, tea plantation and much more..

Stay tune…

Love… Elvie Lins..

Latest Swim Wear In 2019 – My Favourite

Are you guys ready for the summer? Here are my 2 favourite pick in swim wear in 2019.

Perhaps, many do not like the idea of wearing full body swim wear but in 2019 Latest Swim Wear has to be full bodied, though sexy and elegance.

The idea of this design is to look super sexy and dramatic at the back not boring. Best for those who want to look at their best in 2019.

The second best choice of I have for latest swim wear in 2019 is the Neck Accessories Black Swim Wear.

Neck Accessories Black Swim suit. I think even if you have an oversize body or large bone I call it, you will still look good in this design.

Black as we all knew never fades in fashion among women.

The good thing to note about this 2 designs, they are not only elegantly looking but the material is also very comfortable.

Made of cotton and other mix of fabric that I cannot really explain that much. But for me, as long as the colour does not go off when I was it and it fits well on the skin, it means that is a good quality material.

For many swim wear I have tried before, many of those colour just bleed one we are on the water.

Well, to be honest, this is made and design in Europe. If you happen to like this and want to get one? You can visit my online store at https://www.elvielins.com main page.

There are more swim wear to choose from as my pick for this year.

Always,

KIMCHI COOKING IDEAS- Prawn Noodle Soup

Hey guys,

The previous post I had on youtube was about How to make FILIPINO STYLE KIMCHI

When you have Kimchi setting in your fridge, you can create many different kinds of cooking Kimchi base.

Kimchi is such a wonderful thing to have st home, it can go with bbq, or just a condements.

Such as this one I have for you in this post.

Making Prawn Noodle Kimchi.

Preparation time – 15 minutes

Ingredients:

– noodles

– kimchi

– fresh ginger

– water

Kimchi Prawn Noodle soup preparation

Perhaps you have known it already, but I tell it anyway for others who do not know.

  1. Bring the water into boil and add the ginger.

  2. Add sufficient amount of kimchi. Be aware that the soup can be spicy after you finish cooking. M

  3. Clean the prawn and cut it into half to remove the black stripe inside. Cooking the prawn should just be about 2 minutes in a boiling soup as the prawn mest get hard to eat.

  1. Cooking the noodle separately if you like or bring it to boil into the soup until tender.

I like my noodles to be cook in a separate pot and adding it later when ready to eat.

  1. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Good appetite.

Until next Kimchi Food ideas.

❤️love,

Elvie

I WANT TO BE THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE

It takes a lot of hardwork, attitude and motivation in keeping in shape.

Specially when we are or I am ageing.

Keeping the best shape of our life can be very emotional.

But what makes me going?

I am basically fighting fit.

For years that I neglect my health.

For years that ignoring it.

For years nothing in my head but making money.

For years nothing but eating unhealthy and sleeping late…

Now, I am paying for the price as I will be soon getting into golden years.

This will be my motivation..

Hope you all will keeping yourself healthy while you can and while you are all still young.

439 CALORIES LOST FOR SO LITTLE EFFORT IN THE GYM

Just smashed the gym for an hour.

Here is how my new routine:

Started with 20 minutes intermittent walk and run.

What do I mean by that?

On the treadmill:

I slow down and hit for about 177 to 180 bpm : heart beat per minute then I slow down again to bring my heart beat to 150 bpm, then I run again. I do this for 20 minutes.

After the 20 minutes on a treadmill, I go weight lifting, squatts with about 10 kilos weight on my hands (5 kilos each hands.

I do it on alternate position to whatever I could think of. (I learnt it from youtube)

I will end up with push on the floor and some stretching.

All these can be done even there is no gym equipments.

Exercising dont need to be expensive or going to the gym.

It s all about us! All about you.

Start your routine today!

In my food intake:

I eat lots of fat these days becuase I am on intermittent fasting.

16 to 17 hours of no eating but only water, then 8 hours of eating. Meaning, I eat my breakfast, lunch and dinner within the 8 hour period.

But I use a lot good fat, I am avoiding sugar food. I use only quality salt like himalayans.

I can survive 16 to 17 hours of not eating with the help of bullet proof coffee.

Bullet proof coffee is made up of real brewed coffee, 1 tsp of butter and 1 tsp virgin coconut oil , put it together into a blender and blend it for 20 seconds. Darn it makes me full.

Keeping loads of salads and vegetables still part of my diet.

No soda for me but loads of water, water, water.

Ocasionally, but socially, I have a glass of wine either white or red to respect my husband and friends over dinner.

Well, hope that helps for you.

This is my own experience. I am no expert.

I share to perhaps give you some motivation.

Try it!

Love❤️

HOW TO SHOP AND SEND PACKAGE OUT FROM BANGKOK TO OTHER COUNTRIES

If you are thinking of shoping and sending out a package or parcel out from Bangkok, this article is for you.

Upon writing this article, I basically just finished sending out a 20 kilo grams of clothing with the box provided by EMS in Bangkok Thailand.

Where to shop in Bangkok?

Without a doubt, there are provably thousands of places and location to shop until you drop in Bangkok.

My number one recomendation:

Bobae Night Market

This market open only at 2am till 6 am in the morning.

Imagine you have to get up from your deep sleep to shop here.

I understand the scenario. It is only meant to open 2am till 6 am, not the usual 7 to 12 mindnight market.

You can really buy an affordable lower prices for clothings, latest fashions and all the ‘barang barang’ all sort of stuff related to fashions need here.

Pratunam Market, Day or night.

Pratunam is a changing store kind if place.

From 6 am you see different stalls and during night time,

Sellers and vendors are busting at 6am till evening.

In Pratunam, at day, sellers are more impatient than night vendors.

Oposite Pratunam, Platinum Fashion mall is there waiting for shoppers who want to pay using credit cards.

The price in Platinum Mall will be multiply x2 when comes to price. Quality wise, they are all the same.

Then price between Bobae is about 20% higher in Pratunam.

If you get lucky they will give a little more if discounts as long as you buy more than 3.

You are not allowed to try on or even when after you paid it.

Now, you are so done with Shopping. How you can send it to your buyers overseas?

Sending out a package from Bangkok I taught is a nightmare.

But thankful it is not that complicated at all.

I have search and compare between DHL and EMS.

Dhl cost double the price compare to EMS Bangkok

There are many Thailand post everywhere.

I have sent a package weighing 20 kilograms via EMS and costed BHT 3,250.00

What’s Best?

If the goods are heading to the same direction like you do, bring it with you and get extra luggage.

I send mine to Philippines and it was fine.

HOW LONG?

You provably want to know how long will it take to arrived with your package destinations?

According to Thailand post- EMS

It will take 5 to 7 working days.

So, basically if you are a purchaser for your customers, you can tell them how long it will take to arrived.

Happy shopping!

If you are looking for a person to shop for you in Bangkok or Vietnam, do let me know.

❤️love,

Eve.

Home Made Mango Cheese Cake

Today, will share with you some idea of how I make this home made cheese cake.

My husband requested to have some cake for the weekend. I made him a Home made Mango Cheesecake and Tiramisu to be exact.

But in this post, will share with you this “healthier recipe” (he he he).

I am not a sweet eater, but my husband is.

The ingredients:

Cooking pan/thins

1/2 cup oats

100 gram butter

1 tablespoon honey

2 tables spoon water or milk for the oats

400 g soft cheese (Pheladelphia)

200 g mascarpone

4 table spoon yogurt

1/2 cup full cream milk

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon starch

2 eggs

The preparation

Prior to prepare all ingredients, heat up the oven to 180 degree.

  • I combine butter and instant oats into a bowl. Adding 2 tablespoon of milk into the oats.
  • I bake it for 10 minutes in 180 degree oven heat. You maybe need more time or less. Once you see the oats is brown and harden as well as looking crispy, then remove it from the oven and cool it.

The cheeses

I combine the cheese, and all other creamy ingredients one at a time. Using metal whiskier or do you call it a beater?

Combining the eggs and sugar, I then added it to the cheese mixture.

Adding corn starch or potato starch.

Be sure to blend it really well untill the batter looks smooth and creamy.

Your oven is now ready.

You’ve added the cream mixture onto the pan where your oats. Bake it for about 45 minutes until you are satisfied the browny color.

This is now out from the oven after 45 minutes of baking with a 180 oven heat.

I cool it down then put it into the refrigerator for at least 8 hours.

I added slices of ripe mangoes on the top with sole blue berries as well.

Looking good and delicious! Don’t you think?

I serve it after lunch to my austrian husband and he almost ate half of it.

It was the first time for me using oats and it turns out well.

It wasn’t taste too cheesy either.

ENJOY LIFE!

KOH LIPE IS A BORACAY OF THAILAND

At this moment, I am in Koh Lipe Thailand. It reminds me of Boracay in the Philippines.

The fine white sand beach and the calmness of the sea flowing back and forth to the beach line. (Pattaya Beach)

Tonight I have seen the nice sunset because we move to a villas in the other side of the pattaya beach. 

Pattaya beach is not in Pattaya Thailand- they call the beach pattaya where I believe the sun sets in this side and the other side of the beach has Sunrise and the beach side over there is Sunrise beach.They like to sank boats in sunrise beach. Ha ha ha!

This image was taken in Sealavie bar in sunrise beach. The waves in Sunrise is stronger than in Pattaya beach where we stayed.

Sun Sets in Pattaya

Though it is nothing compare to the sunset of Boracay but still beautiful on its own.

The powdery white sand is just like Boracay.

Super fine and nice to walk barefoot on it.

Local and International Food available.

Somehow, because this is already a popular island, seems to be as there were many western tourists I see to this point of time when I’m here, food is not a problem.

Big villas, resort, hotel and hostels are available. Get 10% cash rebates if you use this Link. 

Shoping for some local sovienirs are available too in Walking Street.

There is something for everyone in this island.

How did we get here?

Me and my husband drove our car from Singapore to Wang Kelian immigration – border of Malaysia and Thailand.

Wang Kelian is also the closest border to Koh Lipe.

If you guys happen to be coming to Thailand, you like to consider Koh Lipe.

Away from traffic short and easy walk along the beach.

Kids can play sand castles ad the adults drinks beer etc.

What I notice?

I notice some kind of smell from certain areas as I walk passed. The drainage from the toilet with both hotels we stayed has some similar smells when I was in Boracay before it was seased for cleaning.

Somehow, someday, hopefully it will not turn like the seawage problem in Boracay for Koh Lipe.

We hope for the best and we can do our part as a tourist to re use our towels as long as we can.

Hey Folks,

I am currently here in George Town Penang Malaysia.

I drove from Singapore to Penang.

I stayed a week in Icon City mainland if Penang for some work and after that, spend 4 days in Merbok with a friend place which basically surrounded with Jungle.

Yet a very relaxing indeed.

Back to reality.

Back to work, here in George town to do some work.

After this, maybe heading back or go to Thailand.

But we have a storm here right now.

Tropical storm BABUK is here in Georgetown.

I was walking around today and it was gloomy.

As I write this, a heavy rain in falling right infront of my very eyes.

But I must admit, Georgetown is a unique town.
