Healthy Lifestyle Begins With KoJo Enzyme


Now, I am able to poop everyday thanks to KoJo Mixed Enzyme! Yes, this post is definitely TMI in many senses but it is all necessary for a healthy lifestyle.


Right off the bat, I can tell you that after 3 days of consuming KoJo Mixed Enzyme Apple Juice, I have been able to excrete smoothly every single day. I understand that many of you are probably in disbelieve (probably) at the fact that I don’t poop every single day like a normal human being; well that’s just how my body has been functioning for the past 28 years.

I knew it was unhealthy to not have a smooth bowel system but I couldn’t do anything about it, as everything I tried led me to deal with diarrhea...that’s up until I was introduced to KoJo Mixed Enzyme; no pain, just a smooth ‘toilet’ flow.

Luckily for me, even though, before this I wasn’t able to pass motion as efficiently as others do on the daily, I didn’t suffer from constipation but I did occasionally had minor bloating gas to deal with.

As a whole I can say that KoJo Mixed Enzyme has remarkably improved my bowel system within a week of consumption! Highly recommend it for sure!


For those who are a little more curious of what is in this miracle apple juice, allow me to introduce the KoJo Mixed Enzyme to you.

KoJo Mixed Enzyme helps boost enzyme production that is very important for our whole body system. It helps to improve irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) constipation and bloating gas.

This mixed enzyme apple juice is packaged conveniently that you are able to carry around, open, and drink; anytime,anywhere. It comes in a thin and long sachet that can easily fit inside your bag and pouches.

As for the quality and safety assurance, there’s nothing to worry about as it is a Japanese trusted formula that is 100% natural and contains no harmful chemicals. How I can be so sure of this? Well, my simple deduction is that, if it did contain harmful chemicals, I would probably be running to the toilet to pass motion, however, there is no stomach ache or any discomfort. Hence why I can confidently share this product with you.

The best part for me is that, although, the company guarantees that you would be able to see results in 7 days, I was able to experience the results within a mere 3 days of consumption. Truly wasn’t expecting the KoJo Mixed Enzyme to work is magic that efficiently.

I know that all of these sounds amazing for someone like me who has been dealing with an unhealthy bowel system, believe me, it doesn’t only sound amazing but the effects are simply amazing too. My tummy looks flat most of the time nowadays, so much so that I don’t have to suck it in whenever I am walking in front of people. Yes, people, I once needed to do that trick too.

Anyways, if you are wondering how to get a healthier bowel system too, then know that with only RM10 a day, you can improve your health and slim down in a natural way (too). One box is worth RM150 and it comes with 15 sachets. Well, it is definitely cheaper than a cup of Starbucks and for the most part, your overall health will definitely improve for the best version that it can be.

Places To Eat: Belgische Chocolatier

Hello there my fellow sweet tooths! 

Seriously, who doesn't love chocolate, right? Well, of course, unless you are allergic to it then maybe yea...you might hate it. But thankfully! Majority of the human population get to enjoy the heavenly taste of chocolate; including my dear self!


Just two weeks ago, I got to try my very first chocolate "buffet" thanks to the generous team of Belgische Chocolatier Designer Chocolate Cafe. It was a chocolate party, for sure! And that party was organized by The Butterfly Project Malaysia. Endless gratitude for both of the key players, Belgische Chocolatier and The Butterfly Project Malaysia, that turned my devastating week into a week that was worth working hard for.

I shall share my sorrow in the next post, but for now, let me make you envious of my greatest delight in enjoying all the yummy chocolate lineup that I had.

Right off the bat, as soon as we, the Butterflies, took our seats, we were briefly introduced to this chocolate heaven by Dee Leonard (at this point, I see him as the designated MC and spokesperson for Butterfly events) and the founders of Belgische Chocolatier themselves.

Would you believe it that the whole idea of setting up an authentic yet affordable chocolate cafe came about after a glass or two of liquor? Honestly, for me, it's rather easy to believe it as, I for one, know that brilliant ideas always comes at the times were it is least expected. 

Anyways, my conclusion on the Belgische Chocolatier team is that they are very accommodating (you will know exactly why, shortly) and down to earth.

Ya...ya...but what about the chocolate dishes, you ask?


They are absolutely delicious! My personal favourite is the Belgium Finest Waffles that is generously coated with Belgian White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate. It's like the perfect starter pack to get a taste of their signature chocolates.

I actually remade my piece of waffle petal by drenching it with Belgian Dark Chocolate, drizzling it with the Belgian Milk Chocolate and fancying it out with quick stripes of Belgian White Chocolate. I also sprinkled a few chocolate chips on top of the waffle. As amazing as this description sounded like and as absolutely delicious as it tasted when I had my soulful bite, I didn't take get to snap a picture of it while it was presentable; I legit only thought of it after sloppily chowing down its savoury goodness. So here it is, a sloppy Yana that you all will probably continue to see, if I am downing desserts to glory.



We actually had the chance to try out Belgische Chocolatier's signature chocolate dishes line up! God forbid me from having diabetes...please~~~~!

Well, here it goes...brace yourselves as I am about to share with you, the Belgian Chocolatier delicacies that will trigger your sweet cravings!

Absolutely fresh fruits that were ready to be showered by the 3 Tall Towers of Belgian Chocolate Heaven.


Brownie Crepe


Designer Chocolate Crepe


Three Musketeers - I honestly, wanted to try this! Unfortunately, all I got was to take a stunning picture of it. Well, I am going for round two soon with my partner, so that's definitely in the order list.


Triple Heart Doughnut - Someone frantically stole a heart because it was that yummy!


Fettucine Crepe


Chocolate Sushi Crepe - Also missed my chance in tasting this. Crying my eyeballs out!


Finally, we got to try their 2 highlight chocolate dishes which were;

Sizzling Brownie - Yes! It literally came sizzling! And a mere bite of it gave the shizzles up and down my spine. Oh! So yums....


Volcanic Lava Cake - Although, it wasn't as 'eruptive' as we expected it to be, the taste and texture of the chocolate cake was still superb. In my opinion, at the very least.


I might have missed out on a dish or two simply because I was too busy enjoying each bite that satisfied my chocolate cravings...but nevertheless, you can totally check out their full menu at here >>> Belgische Chocolatier Menu

As I've mentioned somewhere in between the lines up there, that I will be heading over to Belgische Chocolatier for my second round of satisfying my chocolate needs and I'd highly suggest that you do to. Who knows if you might just fall in love with them!

Besides, they aren't merely a cafe. They also throw themed parties in there and they are more than happy to cater for your private functions at your own space. Want to get down on your knees and pop the question or even throw your baby's birthday party? You could definitely do all of that at Belgische Chocolatier!

Just in case, if you'd like to know more about Belgische Chocolatier just before heading to their outlet; you can definitely check out other patrons' feedback and recommendations at here:

Places To Go: VAR Live Mytown Cheras

Where's my weekend fun squad at?!
Seriously, if you have not been to the VAR Live Mytown in Cheras, KL, you must definitely gather up your best team and go there this weekend!


I had an amazing time there with my partner and his close friends. Not only was our group enthusiastically hyped but the whole VR experience was incredible.

At first, the group wanted to try out the haunted room...thanks to all the ads that kept popping up on Facebook, but after walking around the whole VAR Live outlet in MyTown, we collectively decided to try out the zombie killing game; Zombie Jail 2.


All of us, chickened out when we saw how the haunted room looked exactly like in the VR. And the fact that we had to stare into the ghost's eyes to win...Nope! Nope! Hell No!

I have tried the VR Lab in Publika before (which by the way, has already closed down...however they are renting and selling their VR sets, if you are ever interested to start your own VR station...go ahead and contact them) but the experience, excitement and thrill-factor was on a whole different level with VAR Live MyTown.

In VAR Live Mytown, the reality setup is pretty much similar if not exactly made up to be like in the virtual setup. Which was why, we were all sweaty by the end of a round in Zombie Jail 2.

Just imagine this, well, screw that...just take a look at this! This lorry right here, is the same lorry that appears in Zombie Jail 2. In order to play the game, you'd literally have to climb up the lorry and position yourself strategically to kill the zombie before they successfully get a hold of you.


Also, let's not forget to mention that the weapons that we were shooting to glory with was almost as heavy as the real guns. Technically, if there weren't wires dangling from the ends of the guns, I am certain you can fool the policemen and get arrested for illegal weapon possession. 

Trust me, one round of Zombie Jail 2, and you are done with your arms workout for the day.

The price ain't too bad either...can't remember the exact price, since my partner "sponsored" my experience ; but allow me to look it up quickly and share with you the info that you'd need.

VAR Live MyTown
Operating hours: 10.00am -10.00pm
3 VR Games at RM98.00 (individual price)
1 VR Game at RM38.00 (individual price)


For me, I feel like it's worth the experience and bonding moments with your close friends. Since each game roughly measures up to 15-20 minutes, so I'd say, why not try out this VR experience, right?!!

It's fun, exhilarating, mind boggling and you can actually burn some fats without actually exercising. Trust me, these VR games really gets your blood pumping!

If you have tried or would like to give VAR Live MyTown a shot, let me know about it in the comment box below. Till the next zombie outbreak, have a fun time blasting their heads wide open! And also..if you have any other VR places that you'd like me to try out, do let me know!

Places To Eat: JIBRIL SS15

Are you a fan of anything "Salted Egg"? If yes, then you should absolutely try out Jibril SS15! Countless patrons have vouched that by far this is the best Salted Egg Butter Chicken that you can find in Selangor - including myself, of course!

If you think it's all [just] about the saltiness and egginess of the dish that got people hooked on Jibril, then you are wrong. In my opinion, the spiciness that kicks around in the dish, makes it even more of a glorious dish. Yes, there is a powerful spicy kick in their Salted Egg Butter Chicken.

It's pretty much a combo of flavours that would get your tongue tingling, mind blown and heart contented. 


I can't simply ignore the ambience and interior design of Jibril SS15 either! If you are new to the place, you might think that you have arrived at the wrong place, because it's literally like a mini bakery shop on the outside. Even on my first visit, I was like mind blown at the 'secret door' that leads to the real Jibril restaurant.


After entering, some might get a little claustrophobic as the restaurant's ambience is dark and tight spaced. Just think of it as a secret society gathering space. There's even a narrow spiral metal stairs that takes you upstairs to another dining area.

I kid you not, even till now, I have a fear climbing up that staircase - but totally worth it for the Salted Egg Butter Chicken.

I have not personally tried any of their other meals on the menu, so I can't vouch for their other dishes to be equally amazing. Why don't you try and let me know?

Oh! If you think it's expensive because of how the place is made up, it really isn't. It's quite decently priced; RM15.90

Just make sure, that you aren't going there on peak hours, because there are a lot of people that know about this place, despite the fact that it is pretty 'top secret'. Best bet, will be to go on a weekday, I would safely assume.

You can check out their menu at here: JIBRIL SS15 Menu

Every time I go over to JIBRIL SS15, I would secretly imagine myself as part of the secret society that existed way back in the days, like those vampire society. If you would like experience something similar to that era, maybe this could be your other reason to give JIBRIL SS15 a try.

Till I find another secret-society-like restaurant, hope you will enjoy the meals here in the meantime.

I Turned 28...But I Am Not Too Happy About It

Hi there!

Today, I will be sharing with you something rather personal filled with deeper thoughts that may be triggering for some of you.


So, just last month, on the 6th of July, I turned 28 and sadly I am not too happy about it, to be honest. Is it because I haven't achieved quarter of the things I wished to have achieved or was I merely having a rough month or probably it just felt like everything decided to cave in on me at one go?

Truthfully, even I don't know which is it...but I'd bet that it is all of it!

One of the major contribution to my stormy mood last month, most likely, would be because of the "30 Days of No Rice Challenge" that I did. I kid you not, as how some of you may feel extra happy after taking a bite of chocolate, I realised that rice was the my source of happiness and also my energy.

But more on the challenge in the next post...for now, just keep in mind that I really wasn't feeling my birth month because of it.

First week, passed by quite smoothly, however, my boat started to rock the moment it hit my birth day. Suddenly, I felt so unaccomplished, and I bashed myself for it.

"Why haven't you accomplished anything?!"
"You are such a loser!"
"You don't even know what you want!"
"You can't do anything right!"
"Can't you just stick to one thing and excel at it?!"
"Look at her/him, they have accomplished so much and she/he is younger than you!"
"You are almost 30 but still can't get anything right!"

Does any of these screaming sentences sound familiar to you? Well, you are not alone, I too fall deep into this dark place, every once in awhile. I start to compare myself to the people around me...and that's absolutely unhealthy.

I know it, you know that, we all know that and yet it is really hard to not fall into this dark pit. But that's why I am here for you, to let you know that you are not alone...and also to allow yourself to feel what you need to feel but only to humble you down, not to put yourself down.

As I was going through the emotions, it amplified all the things that was happening around me, in this case, almost getting locked out of my rental house, constantly squeezing my already dry bank account, losing a work partner, having a massive art-block, feeling like a lousy girlfriend that doesn't get what her partner wants; all which led me to become insensitive, inconsistent and completely out of focus throughout the month of July.

Adulting hits you really hard, especially when you are mentally, emotionally, and physically down.

But at the end of the month, I told myself to look at the brighter side of things, even though, there weren't many positive moments but it is enough to fuel back my positive energy for August. And I'd highly suggest that you'd list down all the positive things that happened throughout last month, no matter how small they may be, and be grateful about it.

Hey, even waking up alive, is a positive thing. 😊

My happy moments of July was that I was able to spend my partner's birthday for the first time, yes, we are both July babies, attended Hyolyn's First World Tour (although this took place at the end of June), experienced HauntuMY, walked through the 10 amazing years of Marvel exhibition at Pavilion and watching my waifu, Gwen getting proposed by the love of her life, Iqi.

What were your happy moments in July?

Also, if you are feeling down and in need of a pair of ears just to hear your rants, feel free to drop me a message at here, or any of my social media platforms. Remember, it's okay to feel down...just always try to pick yourself back up, right after the storm has passed.

I promise to work harder with a positive mind from here on out, and I'd sincerely wish you do the same. Sending mountains of love and support your way! 💖

And finally, Happy Belated Birthday to all the July Babies! 🎂

The Phantom Of The Opera In Malaysia


Hey there! Welcome back!

If you are new to my blog, "Welcome! It's a pleasure to have you here!"

Today, I will be sharing my experience of getting taunted by the Phantom of the Opera last month. Before I begin, allow me to share with you, one deep secret of mine; I wasn't a fan of the Phantom of the Opera back in my schooling days but all of that changed after the iconic musical that took place in Istana Budaya, Malaysia.


Just know that, no matter what I say after this, I am definitely getting myself the novel just to read and immerse myself back into the Phantom's World; as only now, I am able to enjoy "reading".

I was actually given the opportunity to even experience that tauntingly amazing night thanks to my partner...and yes, he is a major fan of The Phantom of the Opera; he was literally in tears throughout the whole show.

Being a lot more older now, as I was watching the show, it triggered me quite a lot because I can say that I relate more to the Phantom than any other of the characters. Like, I finally can understand his pain; being isolated, and even though you exist people tend to turn a blind eye to your existence so much so that they even make fun of you. And sometimes, when you are not even evil to begin with, people just love to portray you in a negative light.

Also, can't miss out the point where you put so much effort into someone and yet they just selfishly leave you because of your certain flaw. Yeap, you can tell by now that I was definitely triggered by the whole show.

I pretty much, summed up the show with that exposure on my life and the triggers...LOL

But I am not going to end the post just yet, because I also need to share with you how the whole amazing set up of the show was. Each change of scene was simply amazing; like it really draws you into a whole new world. 


And yes! There's an actual scene of the iconic chandelier falling from the ceiling. I kid you not, everyone in the theatre screamed a little, when the chandelier was shaking like an earthquake was taking place and I actually raised my feet a little when the chandelier dropped on to the stage. It was intense!

Their singing, obviously, was out of this world! Every note, every word of the lyric, literally was sung with raw emotions that you can feel the pain, the love, the excitement, the stress, the anticipation, the irony, the struggle, and the fear. A ninety degrees respectful bow to all the casts of the Phantom of the Opera for such an amazing performance.

Seriously, if you have missed the show in Malaysia, please please please, book a ticket overseas or something to watch the show. It's like a one-time thing that is a Must Experience.

I won't babble any longer, because I am afraid of giving out too much spoilers although most of us had already read the novel at least once in our younger days...but yea...I really want you to experience it for yourself.

Like, seriously, the moments are so intense that it is way too easy to lose yourself away from the real world. I genuinely, hope that you'll enjoy, your very own Phantom of the Opera musical show!

“Love me - that's all I ask of you.”  - The Phantom of the Opera

Places To Go: Marvel Studio - Ten Years Of Heroes Exhibition | Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

You! Stop right there!

Are you a fan of Iron man, Spiderman, Captain Marvel, Thor, Captain America or even Black Panther? Then I'd highly suggest that you quickly make a turn to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur as they are having the Ten Years of Heroes Exhibition, Marvel Studio!

Kid you not, you'd probably even turn into a Marvel fan yourself once you step foot into the exhibition.

I would rate myself as a 7 out 10 Marvel fan, simply because I have enjoyed all their movies. I am pretty sure I did watch the first Captain America and Hulk movies in 2011 and 2008, respectively, although the scenes are pretty sketchy in my head now, I am certain that I enjoyed them nevertheless.

Why the 7 and not 10 out of 10? The answer is simple, I am usually the type of movie goer that enjoys movie on their surface and don't really dig in deep of the characters' or the story line background. So, if someone were to ask me something in detailed about a Marvel character, I'll most likely turn into dust, as I would be blur as hell and probably be unfitting to occupy the space on earth as some hardcore Marvel fans may think of me.


But! I really do enjoy Marvel movies as a whole, and my favourite has still got to be Black Panther! Why? The simplistic reason for it is because " it's a feline"...the long-winded reason is because I was really pulled into the movie thanks to the amazing cinematography, the intense flow of the story line, the absolutely gorgeous futuristic fashion sense, the mind-blowing technologies and the wittiness in their humor. Like are you kidding me? If there's a real city like Wakanda hidden somewhere on this very earth, I would do anything to at least even visit it once in my life.

Ever since, mid of 2018, I have been diligently following (almost - I think) all of Marvel movies. And my movie-going-experience has even heightened after getting to know my partner, as he is a fan of movies. Like the amount of movies that I have watched in the cinema over the past 6 months has absolutely "overpowered" the amount of movies that I have watched in my entire life. That's crazy!

Anyways, coming back to the Marvel exhibition, if you'd love to dig in deep to the history and flow of all of the Marvel movies or even to simply see up-close and personal with the "highlights" of each Marvel heroes then this exhibition will be the answer that you have always been looking for.

Or...or...or even to bust your bank account wide open, you'd definitely enjoy the merchandises sold at the Marvel Ten Years of Heroes Exhibition. Even in my broke-ness, I still got myself the Black Panther Mighty Muggs which costed RM59.90. Not too bad of a price right?!

I took the opportunity to also get my partner his Spiderman Might Muggs and a Spiderman jersey. Yes, he is an absolute fan of Spiderman! (In my world, of all the people I know, he is definitely the no.1 fan of Spiderman).


Obviously, burnt a whole in my purse, but it was totally worth it! Hey, I even get to walk away with an Avengers ID...what's not to love about the whole experience. Oh! And you can start calling me "Lady Absolute" - that's my new superhero name now. What are my superpowers? No idea, yet... Let me come up with a background story and character development of some sort then I'll share that with you too, somewhere in the not-so-near-future.

Spoilers Alert!

So, what can you find at the exhibition? A dedicated space showcasing the whole timeline and synopsis of each Marvel movie, life-size models of the Marvel Heroes that are ready for an Insta-worthy spam,  a "wardrobe" walk through with Iron Man, experience the advance technologies of Marvel universe first hand and a whole space devoted to make your bank account go zero.






[Trying my best to keep the spoilers at minimal..hence why the very limited pictures]

Isn't it simply amazing?! I'm not sure about how you feel but I definitely loved every moment that was spent in the Marvel Exhibition.

We went straight to the Marvel Exhibition at Pavilion to purchase our entrance pass, and since we had our MyKad with us, we only spent RM48 for each ticket (if I am not mistaken, if you use Maybank debit card or something you'd get further discount on your tickets)

The Marvel Exhibition is at level 10, by the way!

Go have fun, you guys! The exhibition will be ongoing till October 2019. So, you'd have plenty of time to plan out an outing with your fellow Marvel-heads too!

Places To Go: HauntU Malaysia

Hi everyone!

Omg, last weekend was full of activities! One of them being my horrifying experience at HauntU Malaysia. I am not even dissing, people. It's like a purely horrified emotion of having to step into a 'haunted' hotel right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

So before I go in further sharing my full experience of Hauntu Malaysia allow me to briefly introduce you guys to, in my opinion, one of the best team building activities ever!


HauntU Malaysia is an immersive horror experience with amazing theatrical actors, special effects, stages and scenes that literally fully utilizes all your five senses! Believe me, it gives you the CREEPS! 

Oh! Before I forget to mention, HauntU Malaysia is brought to you by Breakout. You'd probably have to Google up Breakout separately, because this is my first time experiencing any kind of "escape room" or even "horror maze". So, I, myself, am not sure what is Breakout all about, but I hope to find out for myself real soon, so that I can share that experience with you here, too!

Currently, HauntU Malaysia have prepared 3 episodes of horror; all revolving around the story of Colle Eastern Hotel in the 3 different eras of 1950s, 1980s and the mid 1990s. Each episode runs for a few months, not sure exactly how many months, but to find out about that you can follow them on all these social links:

Official Website: https://ihauntu.com/


I went for the second episode "The Tourist" which was set in 1957, the day that us Malaysians proudly chanted wildly "Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!"

I was supposed to go for the first episode the week prior, unfortunately, my partner and his friends had planned to go on that Saturday; which I obviously can't make it since I work on Saturdays. Oh well, I still got to experience HauntU Malaysia, so that's good enough.

Is it really good enough though? Because right now, our whole team really wants to know what are the other 2 alternate endings. Yes! each episode have a different outcome depending on the choices you make during your stay at the Hotel. So....not sure, if the whole gang is going to go for another two rounds or will we just patiently wait for the 3rd episode to come out.

(There's a little cafe at the waiting area, just so that you can indulge before scaring the shit out of yourself)

I, for one, would love to 'die' over and over again, experiencing the horror. I kid you not...I am as faint hearted as the sole definition of it can be. And for some 'miraculous' reason, I was chosen to be "Aidil" of the day. Aidil is the main character that gets linked to the hotel.

Do you know, how terrifying it is, to walk in to a hotel that is so dark at 1 in the morning, and for some reason, every one you meet in the hotel recognizes you and you for all the reason don't know why or how they can actually know who you are??!!

I was literally in tears towards the mid-end. Laughing and crying at the same time, purely because I felt so terrified and I kept laughing, not being able to say a word due to the realization in my head that I was being ridiculously sh*t scared.

Every person you meet along the way besides your team members, literally looks fishy as hell...and you don't even know whether you are supposed to believe them or not, because after meeting them awhile, they keep changing from normal human beings to beings of the paranormal world, that you can only pray and hope that you will not meet any of "them" in the real world!

I cannot leave anymore spoilers in this post, just because I don't want to ruin the experience for you; but just know that, holding or blocking doors are not going to keep you safe!

The theatrical cast of actors and actresses in HauntU Malaysia are simply amazing! Big applause for all of them and the whole team behind HauntU Malaysia that made this happen. Seriously, a definite must to visit, even if it's just for one time sake!


If you are really curious to try HauntU Malaysia out for yourselves, I am going to leave some details below that'll be helpful.

Booking Limit
Up to 10 players per booking and maximum of 10 players can enter at any one time. If you have more than 10 players, you'd need to make a separate booking. (Which is what we had to do with our group of friends last week)

Session
If let's say you have lesser than 10 players, then you'll be mixed with strangers during the session.

How To Bullet Journal

Hey you! Looking for some neat tricks and tips on how to bullet journal? Then you have come to the right place!

First and foremost, let me be frank that I have only been bullet journaling for the past 1 month, so I am not a professional 'speaker' for this subject matter. However, I'd thought it be great for me to share some of the positive and negative points of bullet journaling that I have come across along the way.

Well, technically, there isn't much on the negative side, but there are things that I would like to address for those who also wishes to dive into the wonderful world of Bullet Journal.


Before I begin, ask yourself first, why would you like to start a bullet journal? If your answer falls along the line of "wanting to organize my life", "I keep forgetting stuff", "I am not motivated enough to get things done" and etc, then with my arms wide open, I will warmly love to welcome you to join in on this Bullet Journal Journey.

It has to become a norm at this point in your life to always ask yourself first "Why" you would like to do something. If you figure out your "Why", may it be to improve yourself or to simply keep track of life, then everything else (should) fall in place the moment you step your foot in to 'it'.

So, at the very beginning, I told myself that I wanted to improve everything that I can about myself, that includes being organized, to stop the 'habit' of forgetting stuff and to keep churning my creative brain juice. Those are my core reasons for starting my Bullet Journal Journey.

Now, that we got the "Why" out of the way, here comes the "How"; which is pretty simple unlike what others might have said. All you'd essentially need is a notebook and a pen.


How to Bullet Journal?

Seriously, all you'd actually need is these 5 steps to conquer your Bullet Journal Journey.

1. Finding Inspirations


No idea what needs to be in a bullet journal? Me neither, at first! The best way to find the answer is by going through Pinterest and Instagram accounts that specializes in Bullet Journal. Just type in "Bullet Journal Ideas" and voilà you have your endless source of inspiration for your fresh bullet journal.

Thanks to Pinterest, I stumbled upon, my now Bullet Journal Guru, Amanda Rach Lee. Ever since, I have been religiously following all of her Youtube guides on how to set up a bullet journal in all manner.

I also binge scroll on two Malaysian Instagrammers that blesses all stationary, scrapbooking and bullet journal lovers's soul; Queenie_Abelle and Sky Bambi. Thank me, later. 😉


2. Setting A List Of Spreadsheet Ideas


This is an important step as you'd be able to project what are the things that you would like to highlight in a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily manner. Usually, the spread ideas goes as follows:


Yearly Spreadsheet ideas includes yearly goals, saving goals, and mini monthly calendar to pen down all the future events in a simplified manner.

Monthly Spreadsheet ideas includes events calendar, monthly goals (specific targets to be accumulated into achieving your yearly goals), brainstorm of ideas, task and habit trackers.

Weekly and Daily Spreadsheet mainly includes planning out your activities, prioritizing each tasks according to the days and making sure to get them done on time.


3. Having A Basic Stationary Set



Like I've mentioned above, you don't really need to be fancy if you don't wish to because essentially all you need to start a Bullet Journal Journey is a pen and a notebook. For me, I personally, love dotted notebooks to act as my Bullet Journal because it gives me a lot of freedom to be creative with the space in the notebook.

But if you prefer a lined notebook, a grid notebook or even a drawing notebook to be your Bullet Journal, so be it. You do you! 

In my opinion, to start a bullet journal, what you'll need, is a notebook, a good quality pen (best if there's a variety in sizes), a few coloured markers and a roll or two of washi tapes; just so that we can be fancy with minimal efforts.

The stationeries that I use for my Bullet Journal are the Dotted Notebook that I got from Shopee, Sakura Pigma Micron set and Zebra Mildliner Double-Sided Highlighters from Stickerrific and a few washi tapes from Kaison.


4. Get Creative

No matter what we do, we always have to find creative and different ways to do something. Same principles applies to Bullet Journaling! Writing down notes and creating tasks for the next day, can get pretty repetitive and boring after sometime, and it will kill your interest in Bullet Journaling if you don't start getting creative with your contents.


One way to make you feel pumped up about your own bullet journal is to start by implementing themes into your monthly spreadsheets. Themes like butterflies, cats, desserts and etc. This not only allows you to be expressive in penning things down but it also helps to squeeze your brain juice to come up with something fresh every month; keeping your journal alive.


5. Don't Try To Be Perfect


Being a perfectionist in bullet journaling can be a pain at most times, because this will be the reason why you'd end up at a road block and essentially make you not wanting to continue bullet journaling. Learn to let loose, and enjoy the process of creating.

For me, I don't even bother to use the ruler to make lines in my bullet journal because if not it kind of beats the whole purpose of making the journal look very personalized. Perfect lines are factory made.

Fun fact is that, as you practice to draw your straight lines, along the way, you wouldn't even reach out for a ruler to create straight lines as you've probably mastered them already by then.

Like I said, enjoy the process of creating!


Where to Get Supplies?


Believe it or not, I actually love sourcing for stationeries, online! Yes, there are a few physical stores in Selangor, Malaysia that I would love to introduce you to, but (to me) I find them to be on the pricier side, hence why I tend to shop for most of my supplies online.


My go-to online source is Shopee! They have everything there and their price point is way more cheaper than most physical stores that I have been to.

For physical stores, besides Stickerrific, Jaya One, I have not explored other similar stores that specializes in Bullet Journal, however, I do have alternatives and you'd probably be a little bit surprised once I start mentioning them.

My go-to physical stores for really adorable and cool stationeries are mainly Daiso, Typo and Kaison; just recently I have been attracted to Ryo, Paradigm and Muji outlets for their collection of stationeries too and I am already in plans of getting an item or two from Ryo, Paradigm. (Will share pics of it here, once I get my hands on them)

If you'd still like to check out more specialized stores, here's a few that were suggested by Google:

Cziplee Bangsar
1 & 3, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur

Craftmates
15-1, First Floor, Jalan Radin Bagus 9, Sri Petaling, 57000 Kuala Lumpur

Pipit Zakka Store
11-12, Jalan Menara Gading 1, Taman Connaught 56000 Kuala Lumpur 


How To Get Creative In Your Bullet Journal?


Besides relying on washi tapes, stickers and fancy highlighters, you can also opt to put your sketching skills to good use; or at least train your sketching skills. For me, I am still trying to find the style that suites me best, and so far the only one that is sticking best with me is the black and white theme.


I love simple layouts, so, I am still exploring all the minimal spreadsheet ideas and over time, I will surely be adding more sketches and doodles into my Bullet Journal just to spill my creative juice into it.

Like I've mentioned in the beginning, you can start off small by adding simple themes into your monthly spread, this will keep you hooked up with your journal. Remember I did say that repetitive actions can cause you to burn out or lose interest rapidly.

Trust me, if you'd hit a road block, just Pinterest for a good 10 minutes on the subject matter and you'll be inspired right back!

Additionally, I have also created a new spreadsheet for July that consists of 4 pages for me to purely doodle my heart out. This is just a section I added on to my Bullet Journal to kick start my Creating Characters goal. I am starting off really small here, as I am doodling by themes, since I have yet to find my own style in art.

It's a good practice, for sure.


Try Digital Bullet Journal!


This is on my bucket list of things to do too. Last week, I saw Amanda Rach Lee trying out Digital Bullet Journaling and I thought it was pretty awesome. It's really fascinating to watch her play around with it, as it was definitely 100 times faster than your regular bullet journal as most of the steps could be done in a simple 'delete', 'copy', ' paste' action.

If you are a strong believer in going green, maybe this would be the better alternative for you. As much as I love going green, there's just something about writing down on paper that gets me going rather than a screen of a phone or tablet.

I will also explore Digital Bullet Journal soon, so there will be updates for sure on this post.

Just to give you a little glimpse of the beauty of Digital Bullet Journaling, I shall share Amanda's video here.




Finally, here are my thoughts on Bullet Journaling:

1. Does a bullet journal really help in better management of your life?
Yes, if only you stick to your goals. If you are merely just writing stuff down but not checking them off the list, then in a way you are simply wasting paper.

2. Does your financial management improve?
It definitely will if it didn't already. For me, the first month was to track my expenses to know where do I spend my money the most, and this month I am able to allocate a specific amount of money for different categories of expenses after I had analyzed my previous expenses and earnings.

3. Is Bullet Journaling a bore?
Hell no! I get excited to check off stuff on my pages every night before I go to bed, I get really enthusiastic about it because it gives me a sense of accomplishment. And waking up the very next morning to spill out ideas that popped up in my dream or thoughts while I was in hibernating mode, feels really good.

4. Do you become less of a gold fish with a bullet journal?
Actually yes...I have lessen my forgetful habit by a whole lot! Since I am always with my journal, I barely miss out on things.

So that's it people! Thank you for reading all the way until here. I really hope that this post will inspire you to explore your own creativity and start your very own Bullet Journal Journey.

Till the next note, happy bullet journaling! 😍
