Oh I love That Look

Afro hairstyle is one of the most iconic looks of all time. From Diana Ross, Janet Jackson to Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, and Willow Smith are just few of the many who through the years have sported this gorgeous look. In particular, a full-fat voluminous afro do is a personal favorite. It is wild and carefree. It exudes a certain kind of swag. It is cool. It is beautiful.

Get that look… How?

Thanks to crochet braids, you could rock this afro look any day you want.

What is crochet braid?

Crochet braid or latch hook is a quick, inexpensive, yet protective way to change hairstyle.
The extension must be looped through your natural hair which is braided beforehand. Once done, you can experiment with your crochet braid which does not only allow you to have the iconic afro look you love, but it also gives you freedom to experiment in terms of color, length, and texture. So you can style all you want while keeping your natural hair safe and undamaged.

Constant hairstyling may give the satisfaction of having the kind of look you desire. However in the long run, your natural crowning glory would surely take the heavy toll from hairstyling products. And in some cases, hair loss could be the worst scenario possible no one dreams of experiencing.

So it is wise to use crochet braid.  It is economical. It is easy to use, and gives you that afro look that has been here like forever. Wigging it could be another great idea.

Unplanned Staycation: Rimlay Park Resort

Rimlay Park Resort Review

If you would like to know our experience in this resort read on.


My husband and I work full time. Parents out there could surely empathize with us wanting to getaway and simply relax.  And in today’s busy and structured world, this does not come by easily.  Parents have busy schedules and kids’ have timetable full of classes from dusk to twilight, plus special classes here and there. With all these crazy sched in the family, finding the common time for a holiday is rare and difficult. Fortunately though, the previous week we had that rare time. And so we grabbed the opportunity and went on our unplanned staycation.

For us, a perfect staycation means staying in a new place with a nice accommodation, clean air conditioned room with wifi, fridge, and coffee maker, and most importantly a place with kids pool. So we hurriedly booked Rimlay Park Resort at Phattalung Thailand.

As soon as the booking was confirmed, we drove there the following day. Since it is unplanned, I forgot the kids’ life jackets. They love swimming but they do not know how to swim yet, thus the life jackets.  We ought to enroll them in a swimming class. And yes we will, it is important.

We got to the resort after hours of going back and forth exploring the outback. Yes it is in the countryside. It is a little haven in the middle of acres and acres of rice fields and forest.

The place is good and we rated it 4/5. But it does not have a proper kids pool unlike Haad Kaew Resort. It is actually an adult pool with a shallow area where adults could sit around and tête-à-tête while in the water.

Anyway, all’s well that ends well.  The kids had so much fun.  The accommodating lady owner lent them swimming aid noodles. Although short, but it had been a relaxing stay and an enjoyable one for the kids.

Rimlay Park Resort is a great staycation place for families or a getaway haven for group of friends. If you would like to know more about this resort, read Rimlay Park Resort Review.

Marigolds for the King

Today is the Royal Cremation of Thailand’s most beloved King. Thais all over the kingdom swarmed ceremonial places to show their love and bid King Bhumibol Adulyadej their final goodbyes. It is truly an emotional time, people may it be young or old queued and waited in line for hours amidst heat and rain. The Royal Cremation was meticulously prepared with huge support from Thai volunteers and support from establishments in the form of food, drinks, raincoats, or cutting business hours to give employees time to join the ceremony like Tesco Lotus, 7 11, and some gas stations, just to name a few.

Aside from the incomparable show of devotion and the lavish royal crematorium (yeah lavish US$ 90 million), another prominent feature is the use of countless Marigolds. In every corner of the kingdom may it be residences, business establishments, schools, offices, or images of the late king, Marigolds are displayed.


Let us take a closer look at this flower.


Marigold flower belongs to the genus Tagetes which are native to North and South America but which are now widely cultivated in Asia, including Thailand. Marigolds are used as decorations for weddings, garlands, or as offerings for rituals and religious events. It is regarded as the flower for the dead in pre-Hispanic Mexico.

In light of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s burial, this bright yellow flower is chosen as yellow is his official color. He was born on a Monday.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej, forever you will stay in our hearts.

He will forever live in the hearts of Thais for they will forever be grateful of his benevolent heart.

Five Universal Baby Language

5 Universal Baby Language

While babies bring tremendous joy to mom and dad, having them especially to first time parents could mean sleepless nights too. For most parents, babies’ cry is just simply a cry.  To us, this cry could mean just about anything and it is up to us to guess what they are crying about.

My husband and I were no different from the rest of parents out there. We were exhausted, and just did not know what our then new born daughter needed.  And since we did not know anything about baby language, we were just guessing what could be wrong with her. Sometimes we got it right, but oftentimes the crying went  on, and on and on. Thus the long hours of incessant crying.

However just before I had my second child, I came across a video about baby language.  Here, it was explained that a baby’s cry is actually a form of language to communicate with their parents. I studied these sounds, applied it to my then new born son, and it definitely worked.

Being able to understand their cry is amazing! I thought it would have been a treat if I had known of this when my daughter came. I could have spared her, my husband, and myself from sleepless nights.

So for first time parents, and moms and dads to be, study these five baby language.

  1. “Neh” means hungry
  2. “Owh” means sleepy
  3. “Heh” means discomfort. This could translate to, I just peed. I pooped. I don’t like my position. I’m hot. I’m cold.
  4. “Eair” means lower gas.
  5. “Eh” means burp

Thanks to Priscilla Dunstan

Priscilla Dunstan is the lady behind baby language.  And she is the woman, parents across the world have to thank for. These five baby sounds are universal. This language holds true to all babies the world over regardless of race and nationality. It is important to familiarize these sounds for you to decipher them. So take a look at this video and learn the sounds.
