That we sometimes keep falling back into the same pattern because we keep assuming that any future patterns will be more or less the same based on our past experience.

I watched a Victoria Secret model giving a TED talk first thing today. I've watched many, many TEDtalks and this is probably the first supermodel to speak on TED. Found it just interesting to share.
In her opening, she demonstrated a simple action to prove the importance of images. She first strut out in her short dress and killer heels, and later, tied a long wrapped skirt, swapped her heels for flats and put on a sweater. And, the previous impression of an elegant, chic woman was instantly transformed into a laid-back, more ordinary looking girl.
Her words are, Image is powerful but image is also superficial.
Here, Cameron speaks about being on the other side of the fence. While modeling is a glamorous industry, it is all "constructed". Beautiful images of beautiful women, often misleading a generation of young girls into believing in an altered state of beauty.
I enjoyed her talk and especially agree when she mentioned, how some are able to get through life easier. For example, in her talk, she has received a dress absolutely free of charge when she forgot her wallet and got away scot-free when her friend and her were stopped by the police for driving over the speed limit.
These have everything to do with images. While image may be superficial, it holds a lot of power too. For example, if a woman takes the effort to take care of how she looks, it does not only affect the exterior, of how people look at her. Most importantly, it takes care of the inner, where she feels great and confident.
Low confidence is a waste of time. Questioning your own worth is a waste of time because we all hold the immense power to change our life, just by changing how we view ourselves. And, the way to change our view is to feel good. And to feel good, we just have to do things that makes us feel good.
Little changes can lead to big changes. Simply start with our image - not to conform with the expectation of society but for ourselves.
So, we did. Just for fun.

It was a porky affair indeed. Look forward to go to El Cerdo in a bigger group for the suckling pig.

Don't you just love that quote above? The idea of unraveling something that's already lying within us but a discovery that could only be done on foreign lands.
Traveling is a luxury but yet, I believe, it should be a lifestyle. I love the feeling of packing and uprooting myself to somewhere for a couple of weeks. The idea of planning and settling errands before boarding the plane, gives me a feeling of tidying up that point of my life and coming back almost, always anew.
Coming up with this post makes my heart soar but yet, there's a reserved feeling that's holding me back, asking, if this is possible? But, yet, we mustn't be afraid to dream right?
So here are my 2013 travel destinations.
#1 Winter in The Netherlands
Two trips to The Netherlands, but each time only in the summer, I think, it's time to see snow blanketing the lands for as far as the eyes can see.
#2 New York
Being a Sex & The City fan girl, New York has always been in my dream list. Perhaps, it's just time that I see Manhattan with my own eyes this year.
Am not quite sure how to make this happen, but Mongolia has always teased me with its strong landscapes and Nomadic traditions. As an English tutor in a local college, I've had the privilege of meeting many Mongolian students who told me, how wonderful their country is, especially the countryside. My dream when I am in Mongolia is to travel to the furthest parts of the desert and gaze at the million of stars that blankets the skies at night, ride horses and hold the magnificent eagles (with gloves, of course!)
Now, what are yours?

Here I've compiled the common reasons why thousand of women has resorted to the Easecox undergarment, saving money on medical bills in exchange for better health and beauty.

For myself, apart from slimming effects, it has also reduced my gastric/wind problems significantly. I used to rely on anti-acid frequently but thankfully, the product has taken care of this problem. I haven't taken any anti-acid pills since I started wearing the garment in October 2012.
Also, what sets the Easecox Diamant apart from others in the market is, each Easecox Diamant user will be consulted by a certified professional body designer. A body designer is one that has undergone classes and exams before obtaining her license to consult clients.
During the consultation, the body designer will seek to understand your concerns and then do a comprehensive measuring of your body to tailor-fit the best size and garment recommendation. Thus, what each Easecox Diamant user gets is the best customized fitting that is exclusively theirs and will eventually help them to attain their dream figure.
With the Diamant undergarment, attaining your dream figure is not impossible.

Thankfully, I discovered the Easecox Super Conductive Metallic Ion Eye Mask. Not just any other eye mask, it has the combination of silver and copper within the material. As it's a patented product, it's exclusive to Easecox alone.

Using a sophisticated technology from Japan, these magnetic stones are designed to enhance the magnetic wave released from the combination of silver and copper within the material.
These magnetic rays or Far-Infrared rays (FIR) helps users to:
- eliminate dark eye circles
- decrease eye tiredness
- improve blood circulation around the eyes
- improve nose allergy
- decrease migraine
- sleep better
Now, this is my own testimony. After only nine days, the puffiness around my eyes have been reduced tremendously. Also, you could see, I look much tired in the BEFORE picture. In the AFTER picture, I look more "awake". No make up was worn in both pictures.

Sometimes, when I am extremely tired with a lot on my mind, I find, wearing the eye mask helps me to relax and sleep better.
So, if you are looking for a solution that doesn't require surgery or expensive eye creams to rid dark eye circles, I'd strongly suggest you wear the eye mask every night when you go to bed. It has definitely helped me to rid my dark circles and puffiness problem.

I've always been a natural cheerleader. I cheer for my friends, their hopes and aspirations, for my students, to encourage them to go far. However, I've never really cheered for myself because I've never really know what I'm made for. Until now. When I started discovering the layers beneath me, not only am I astounded but I am working harder, striving harder and not losing any time and opportunity. Because, what was lacking all this while, was my confidence in myself.
Now that I'm discovering the immense power of self-confidence, with a new perspective in life, I want the same for everyone else. It doesn't matter if they're my friends, family or strangers, because from now, I am going to challenge everyone to see the world differently.
What lies beneath and what lies ahead are usually things we have yet to know. And, if we don't change how we view the world, things will always remain the same.
