My Cucumber Face

Went to the market this morning to replenish the food stuff in my empty fridge. Chicken parts, vegetables and breakfast were bought but I ended up eating alone cos I did not have any "dates" or "appointments" as my kids did. The house was so quiet when they were not around this whole morning and afternoon.

Mum also didn't want to be left out (chap shu) so I went for my badminton session at 1.30pm till 3pm... and now... sigh... "suffering" the consequences of having that game earlier. I really have to give up playing, my arms and back started to get some discomfort again. I must accept the fact that ..... it is time to hang up my racket.

Coming back to the topic, tonight's dinner is just tuna sandwiches... that is it! Tired la... With the excess cucumber, this idea came to my mind...... anyone tried this before???

my girl did this for me and snap a pic...
a "cucumber face" is born....

  2. Oh ya..tried it on my eyes area... ^_^

  9. Cucumber and the skin share the same level of hydrogen,it helps in soothing and softening your skin and treating many skin problems. The cleaning and cleansing property helps your skin tremendously making it soft and supple.

  10. Well, you are just adorable! Yes, I actually just saw this on the Dr. Oz T.V. show to put cucumbers on your face, it's good for it!! I just had a tuna sandwich, how do you make yours?

    mingna: u r very knowledgeable.. u r a skin doc or health doc? wanna go consult u ..

    ginny: my sandwich is very simple, just put the tuna mayo on the bread.. and wallop them.. :p

  12. Soothe the tired eyes. But I never tried putting on my face though. Nice pic. ;)

  13. I've heard of cucumber on the eyes but I've never actually done it. Interesting.

  14. I heard cucumber is good for the eyes.. cools it and reduces eyebags.
    For the face,, aloe vera is better.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
