Confidence vs Over Confidence


What are the differences between confidence and overconfidence? Why is it that some people tend to fail even though they are very confident about executing something?

Confidence comes in 2 stages. In stage 1, you have to be confident that you can conduct something. In stage 2 you will have to plan on how to execute something. I call this as a strategy.

You have to plan on how to make something to happen. Make plan A, plan B and so on. Whichever that works to make your vision to happen.

Have the confidence that when you fail in executing plan A, then you can use plan B to make your vision to happen. So that's about being confident and planning your strategy.

And so why is it that some people tend to fail even though they are very confident about executing something?  

This is where overconfident barge in. Most people who are overconfident usually will fail to plan their strategy. Some tend to procrastinate. Some will approach the whole idea without any strategy.

They will take their capability to do something effortlessly for granted. Most of the time, the end result will be terrible as even though they have the confidence to execute something but when they fail to plan then they are planning to fail.

For example, when you are confident, you will constantly do exercises to prepare yourself for an exam. With that, you will confidently enter an exam hall.

When you are overconfident, you will skip the constantly practising part and study one hour before the exam. It happens just because you are overconfident that you can nail the exam.



Have the confidence, plan your strategy and conquer the world!



P.S This is solely my opinion. You might have a different opinion on what confidence and overconfidence means. Feel free to share it in the comment box.



Luminous Beauty Parlour Grand Launch and Review


I am obsessed with manicure and pedicure but I am used to doing it for myself. For me, if I am to do manicure or pedicure it must be for an occasion and I don't usually go to an extent of doing my nails just because I am attending a birthday function.



Luminous Beauty Parlour invited me to their launch and to my surprise they gave me a complimentary manicure service. Will I miss this chance? Never.



Since my ideas for a manicure in a beauty parlour are actually over hyped so I chose a wedding themed manicure design. Stones. Yes! I chose lots and lots of stones where it glitters everytime I move my hands.



Luminous Beauty Parlour is a very elegant and classy looking beauty parlour. If you need a stress-free time then you have to head to this place.



With their interior looking so lovely, you won't feel like leaving that place immediately. You will choose to stay for hours instead.



Once I was there, they prepared me a cup of tea and I was choosing my design while enjoying the tea. Since I was looking for a very grand looking design so I googled on wedding theme manicures.

I came up with a design and the work started. It took a whole 2 hours. I chose gel and also matte and I chose a combination of silver and maroon.


I didn't feel like the two hours have passed until she told me that she is done as the music was playing which I was really enjoying watching her doing my nails.

The stones on my nails lasted for a week. The gel lasted for 3 weeks. The matte lasted for more than 1 month. Which was really worth it I feel.



I think if you are having a wedding then than it is okay to have stones on your nails. If you want a design which lasts for at least 3 weeks then go for a full gel or matte design without any stones.

To be honest it looked terrible when the stone fell and I had to cover the part with my own nail polish. I think it happened because I was really working with dishes and all for that particular week.



Overall, I am really satisfied with the interior of the Luminous Beauty Parlour and the customer service. Next time I will definitely choose the gel type or matte type of nail polish so it lasts longer.

Nasi Lemak Biryani~ Malgudi Restaurant Petaling Jaya Review


Nope, I am not kidding. It really is Nasi Lemak Biryani!! Nasi Lemak flavour is overtaking Malaysians taste buds through cakes, chocolates, burger and now it is in a biryani form.

Who doesn't love a good biryani right? Malgudi Restaurant serves a great Biryani and now they have come up with a brilliant dish. Their very own Nasi Lemak Briyani!



Nasi Lemak Briyani (NLB) as the name suggests, they decided to replace the traditional coconut milk rice with their specialty biryani rice (cooked in coconut milk) served along with the essentials (cucumber, fried anchovies, peanuts, egg & their version of Sambal) and a scrumptious Malgudi fried chicken.

As you can see in the picture the chicken was to die for. It looks a little overcooked but to be honest it was cooked just nice. I was craving for more right after I had it. 



The nasi lemak biryani will be served in conjunction with Merdeka & Malaysia Day from the 31/8/2017 - 16/9/2017 at only RM19.50. Available for both lunch & dinner.

Another dish that I tried in Malgudi which stole my heart was their Kulfi. The last I tried one was in India and ever since then I was craving for one.



When I tried Malgudi's Kulfi I turned into that happy kid cause the taste was extremely good. I was thinking that it will be extremely sweet but it was just nice that I was able to finish the entire plate within minutes. The Kulfi goes for RM7.50.



Another thing that I loved most about Malgudi is their customer service and their interior. The interior was splendid and the art that they displayed on the wall was really fascinating.


Malgudi is a fictitious town somewhere in south India created by R.K. Narayan in his novels and short stories. Malgudi Restaurant was inspired by R.K Narayan's work.


The Nasi Lemak Biryani is really exclusive so grab yours while it is still available guys. Don't regret later on!

3 Tips For First Time Contact Lens Users!!!


Are you an avid contact lens user? Then this post is not for you. I am sure, years of using lens would have given you enough experience to use the contact lens right.

Those who are first timers, who will have millions of doubts and usually screw things up. I have been there. So I know how it feels. LOL!

I have listed 3 tips for contact lens users.

Lacelle Diamond Aqua
1. Use Oil-Free Products

Well, we all know that oil and water will not mix well. If your eyes attract the oil around your eyes then the changes for your eyes to be cloudy eyes is high. To avoid the discomfort it is better to use an oil-free product, at least just near your eyes will do.

2. Get Daily Disposable 

Want to avoid the hassle of cleaning your lens everyday then just get a daily disposable lens. It will save a lot of your time and you will never have to face any red eye issue. You also would be able to wear a pair of new and fresh pieces of lens every day. The comfort though.

3. Clean Your Lens Well. I repeat! CLEAN YOUR LENS WELL!

Seriously this is a major issue when it comes to contact lens. How comfortable your lens is going to be the next day is based on how well you have cleaned the lens a day before. You have to clean your lens every day. Not only that, you also have to use fresh solution every time you clean it. Also, do not only clean the case but clean the top part of the cover of the case as well.

Lacelle Diamond Pink
I have been using Bauch and Lomb Daily Disposable lens and I am totally loving it. It is so easy to use it and I don't even feel like I am wearing it throughout the day!

Since it is a daily disposable so I can avoid redness and itchiness which some times comes due to not cleaning the lens well.

Also, not to forget that my laziness is peaking these days so daily disposable lens must have been one of the best creation ever.

Not only that, it is a great feeling to wear fresh new pairs of lens every day. It also stands up to 12 hours and I don't feel uncomfortable at all.

Overall, I am very happy with the product that I am using now.

Sango Japanese Cuisine, Crystal Crown Hotel Petaling Jaya Review


Sushi! Who doesn't like sushi right? Just as I was craving for one, Foodilifecious invited me to Sango a Japanese Cuisine situated at Crown Hotel, Petaling Jaya for a food review.

Sushi Platters ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
I always believe in Foodilifecious taste for food at they are a great food hunters. As I entered Sango I was already all awe cause of the elegant and classy interior.

Sango also has been serving authentic Japanese food since 1995 so I had no doubts when it comes to their experience in this field.

Tempura Moriawase 
As expected I was late for the food review but not too late to a point where they have already started eating. The second thing I noticed was, of course, their food presentation.

Cha Soba ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
It was exquisite and as classy as the restaurant's interior. Maybe, because it is situated inside of Crown Hotel so the presentation was up to fine dining's level.

Yakitori Omakaze ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
One thing about going to Japanese cuisine is they will never let your cup or glass to be empty. They will always ensure that your glass is full and that leads to drinking 5 to 6 cups of green tea.

Seafood Teppanyaki Platter ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
That's one thing that I love about their customer service. They are also always present so you can reach them whenever you want and there is no need for you to wait for hours to get their attention.

Cha Soba ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
Their wasabi wasn't really how I expected it to be. Usually, wasabi gives you a kick when you use half a tea spoon but at Sango I used one spoon full to feel the kick.

Chicken Teriyaki Don (New Lunch Donburi) RM15.00
Their food choices also were unique at least it is for me. Their salmon tasted really good. Here I have listed my favorite from Sango.

New Salmon Donburi RM22  Lunch only ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
Seafood Teppanyaki Platter ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
Salmon Carpaccio ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
Chicken Gyoza ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
Overall their service is great, food presentation was done full with effort, the interior was really soothing and I had a good time with my blogger friends chilling.

Ten Don (new Donburi) Launching soon for lunch RM 18.00 ( Sango Japanese Cuisine Review )
I would like to thank Foodlicious and Sango management for giving me a wonderful experience of being able to dine in Sango and at the same time to try their mind blowing Japanese authentic dishes.

If You Want To Judge Then Go Ahead ~ Subashini Asokan


"Yes, I was hit by star struck after being a lead in Anbe Aruyirey," said by Subashini Asokan who played lead character as Vino in Anbe Aruyirey.

The journey wasn't filled with flowers and lots of love as expected but it was rather filled with tonnes and tonnes of stones and thunderstorms!

I was doing my degree in Physiotherapy back then in 2012 and I had no passion to be part of the entertainment industry and to act. 

It was Bala Ganapathi Wiliam (BGW) who figured out my talent. Since we were from the same hometown Sungai Petani so I felt rather comfortable to work with him.

When I went for my first casting call I was selected but the short film's progress stopped halfway due to some reason. 

That was my first disappointment as I just newly entered the entertainment industry and though I got the chance it didn't go well.

The disappointment didn't impact me much as I wasn't that into acting career back then. I was more focused on finishing my degree and getting a job relating to physiotherapy.


Later on, I was recommended for a short film which didn't take place as well due to some reason. In 2013 I did a photoshoot and in 2014 I was recommended for another few more short films.

Except for the photo shoot, all the other opportunities knocked my door and left. I was a little fed up as they triggered my desire to act and it was all hopeless. I gave up on the entertainment industry. 

I started working in Dataran Maybank as Customer Service Executive. When you start to earn you will get all hyped up and the desire to earn a lot of money will kick in.

I was also like that at that particular period and I was all money minded and I was very focused on my job. Unfortunately, I have this thing where if I don't like a job I will resign. 

I have changed about 5 to 6 jobs by far. Then, I started seeing the real world. A lot of people are working for money and I wanted to change that for myself.

I started to figure out on what is there for me out there and what I am truly passionate about. Right at that time, I was offered to act in a short film titled Nivadi Chellam.

I was given a small role but the desire to act peaked in me. I started to focus on acting career passionately. I acted in Kampung Kuttua in 2015 and I did few RTM projects with Naga Sir.



I got a chance to be one of the lead characters in a music video titled Anbe Aruyirey directed by Vathaniy Kunasegaran. That's when the star struck hit me really strong.

People started to recognise Subashini Asokan and the response was really unexpected. I was overwhelmed by the love that they showered me.

I strongly believe that you need the right time to shine. I have been in the entertainment industry from 2012 and only after Anbe Aruyirey I was recognised.

You have to start from the base. You will be rejected. Not once but a few times. All you have to do is to keep trying until you find your point to shine.

Anbe Aruyirey was my time to shine so I shined and I am still shining. I strongly believe it was mainly because a lot of people can relate themselves to Vino's character.

Unfortunately, some accused me that I was going after fame and name which I never once have proclaimed.



Everybody has a talent and through recognition, your talent will outshine even better. Sometimes you need some credits for all of the hard work you are putting out there.

I am trying to be better. I am trying to achieve. If I am busy clearing my name out there then I won't have time for myself.  So if you want to judge then go ahead.

After Anbe Aruyirey I worked on Yeno Maaruthu Vaanilai a short film under Soma's direction. My recent work is Kaadhal Enbathu Saabama a music video directed by BGW.

To be honest, as much as I got great feedbacks on both Yeno Maaruthu Vaanilai and Kaadhal Enbathu Saabama I also got negative feedbacks.

For instance. a lot of people told that I was bold enough to do such intimate scenes. Some criticized by saying it is not proper to act in such a scene as we are not up to that level yet.

I just couldn't accept their criticism. While we are going all out to give our best and some of our own people are putting us down by telling us to what level we should be going to.

I received a few Instagram Direct messages which were vulgar. Some asked if it is really necessary for me to act out the kissing scenes.



For me, work is work and personal is personal. Both Yeno Maaruthu Vaanilai and  Kaadhal Enbathu Saabama had their own justifications on why I had to do that specific role.

Acting is my passion and I really don't care what they think about me. When I get news which I don't want to hear I will be all stressed out.

I don't want to be condemned by them and stop doing what I want to do in my life. If it will make me to progress then I will keep doing it.

When it comes to relationship status I am single right now as I want to be with a guy who accepts me for who I am. I want him to be supportive or don't even bother being part of my life.

I want someone who takes me higher. Not someone who asks me to stop acting when I am very passionate about acting.

Anybody can throw shit at your face and you would be able to still accept it but when your own partner doesn't support you and that is when you will get a huge mental breakdown.

Though at first, my parents didn't support my choice to act now they are my strongest backbone ever. They are the place I go to get a genuine comment.



One piece of advice which I would like to give is women in this industry should help to adjust other woman's crown. They should not snatch it away or throw it away.

This is a small industry so everybody should help each other to achieve.

Last but not least I would like to thank BGW for identifying the talent in me and for pushing me to go for my passion. I also would like to thank my family especially my mother and sister, for being my pillar of strength

UG International Hair Donation Campaign ~ Lock of Hope Home Charity Event


On 18th of August, I got an invitation to blog about UG International Hair Donation Campaign. It was a charity event which focuses on hair donation.

UG International Hair Donation Campaign ~ Lock of Hope Home Charity Event 
While many searching for places which offer hair donation service, here they chose to give a secured platform which at the same time enables you to do charity for Lock of Hope Home.

UG International Hair Donation Campaign ~ Lock of Hope Home Charity Event 
To those who are donating their hair, they will be given hair care products as a gift. The professionals who are cutting the hair will give a nice trim to the donors make their hair to look splendid.



Missions from Locks of Hope:


(1) Make wigs for cancer patients undergoing chemo.
(2) Fundraising medical fee or/and living expenses for cancer patients

Hair loss is one of the most traumatic side effects that most chemo patients face, especially female and child patients. 

To overcome this traumatic experience, wigs are usually the best choice while waiting for their hair to grow back. 

UG International Hair Donation Campaign ~ Lock of Hope Home Charity Event 
Unfortunately, amidst all the cost of cancer treatments, an RM800 wig may be out of reach. 

In line with its tagline Look Great, Feel Greater, the Locks of Hope Hair Donation Campaign is brought to Malaysians by MMIS Professional.

This is to provide a platform for Malaysians to donate their hair to be turned into wigs for cancer patients who are going through chemotherapy.

UG International Hair Donation Campaign ~ Lock of Hope Home Charity Event 
 In addition to donating hair, UG International hair care products will be sold at discounted price while the profits made during the event will be donated to Locks of Hope for charity purposes.
Hair requirement:

Length: At least 6 inch/15cm.

Condition: Dry, colored/perm/rebonding please donate after 6 months

As you can see from the pictures, the event was a success. I was told that this event will take place a few times in a year.
