I feel like the misccariaged body is even weaker than the pregnant body

 The observation that I am going to share was so far what happened to me 2 days after miscarriage. Personally, I feel the need to document every single part of this incident because ...of course, no body would ever want the same thing to happen anymore. 



Day - 0 miscarriage - 3rd July 2021 , around 7pm 

Day 1 - Post miscarriage Day 1  - 4th July 2021 

Day 2 - Post misccariage Day 2 - 5th July 2021 



 For Item 6 Seating position, I would spontaneously sit in the position as shown in Mr RIGHT. (The position on the right side of the picture)


For item 6 also, the SUPINE position. 


For the item 1-3, It is about the gripping, meaning using your fingers to catch something. I feel that my arm muscle is still working fine. 

Whereas for my fingers muscles...It could be probably due to Day 0, while the violent contraction happened, it was so painful that I have used all finger muscles  to grip/grasp the T-shirt of my husband, until at one time Ifeel  that I could have tore his clothes.  


I feel nothing immediately after the miscarriage (while I am still in hospital). The pain starts on Day 1... 


I feel that my muscles (fingers, bottom parts, uterus) has now undergoing post-traumatic syndrome, hahaha. That's how I call it la. SO, I really need to have a good rest. 


I really want to jot down the story of my miscarriage , but for now , I would just go and lie on my bed first. The uterus is aching now.

Melano CC Premium Brightening Essence : The effective affordable Vitamin C serum

 




You have learnt that Vitamin C is powerful antioxidant. So what does antioxidant do to us? 

The most common benefit is that it is a cure for common cold as well as to boost immune system. 

Then how about Vitamin C Serum? 

Before anything, I would like to share this Melano CC Premium Brightening Essence, which is the No 1 Brightening Essence/Serum in Japan. 

In fact, the Melano CC range formulated by Rohto Mentholathum focuses on Vitamin C. For your information, Vitamin C also known as Ascorbic Acid.  Being the super antioxidant, it can help to fight the harmful UV ray from sunlight! 




So, what's the benefit of Vitamin C Serum?  
  • reduces wrinkles
  • protects collagen and increases production
  • aids wound healing
  • helps protect against sun damage
  • reduces hyperpigmentation
  • evens skin tone
  • brightens complexion
  • acts like armor against pollution and other free radicals





Then what does the  Melano CC Premium Brightening Essence does to your skin? 

The benefits has no much difference from the benefits listed above. If you have trouble of getting rid of dark spot ,pimple marks, acne scars or uneven skin tone . You can try on this. 

Ingredients 


Vitamin C 
With the L-Ascorbic Acid as the most prominent , powerful antioxidant. It is know to get rid of free radical, slow down the ageing. For me, since it is known to fight harmful UV ray, i prefer to use it during the day before applying the sunscreen, feeling that it works like a double shield. 哈ha

Vitamin E 

Vitamin E which is tocopheryl acetate in the ingredient list 

QUote directly from Vogue Website here
"Vitamin C and E are both antioxidants and support each other," she explains, adding that ferulic acid is another antioxidant which boosts and stabilizes both vitamin C and vitamin E in fighting free radical damage and collagen production. "



Alpinia Katsumadai Seed Extract
A ginger extract that helps brigten and balance the skin tone. 


Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate

 Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate is a non-irritating, non-sensitizing, and non-phototoxic an anti-inflammatory agent. For this, it is used to treat chronic dermatitis (meaning skin allery problem, like eczema) 



Packaging 

If you look closely at the packaging. All the information were written in Japanese and only a sticker in English for the little information 


Nozzle : To ensure an airtight packaging so as to prevent oxidation of the sensitive Vitamin C serum 
Tinted aluminium tube: Vitamin C is untable and photosentisitve (sensitive to sunlight)




Texture : 

It is a transparent oil form. From my reading here, most of the Vitamin C serum in the market is yellow in colour. In this way, you can't find if the vitamin C has been oxidised or not. (It turns yellow upon oxidation)


Lightweight 
It seems oily  when you first apply it (Which reminds me of essential oil, haha ), but it goes well and absorbs quicky. Then the citrus scent is pleasant and does not cause any allergy reaction on my oily skin too. 




In short, if you have oily or mixed oily skin, looking for a serum.essence to lighten your pimple marks , acne mark. You should try on Melano CC Premium Brightening Essence 



This is the so far the very affordable Vitamin C serum in the market that you should try on! 
Priced at Rm 59.90 , available in Watson Malaysia . 

(P/s: I saw some people are selling it on shopee, but the packaging is an old packaging)

Food Review : Above Cafe @ SS15 , Subang Jaya

 It was just a random day when I first stepped into the cafe. I was starved that my stomach kept gumbling. While running errand in SS15 , a hustle business area in Subang Jaya, I decided to pop in any restaurant to feed my hungry soul first. 

Above cafe wasn't my first choice (It is located upstairs, same row as Mc Donald in SS15), I was actually planning to dine in the pan mee not faraway, just as I passed through the doorway of Above cafe. (As seen in the picture below), I thought I might try some different things. 





I was attracted by their lunch value combo. I haven't eaten carbonara for quite some time already. and since the price was okay, I decided to go for it. 



The first view that greeted me when I pull the transparent glass door . 


It exudes a comfortable  cozy feeling, the yellow gallery lightning for the interior of the cafe exude a feeling of slowly pace and relax. (Cozy relaxing BGM , background music playing at the back too)




The view of the cafe interior from my seat. 

Brought my husband to the cafe during the second visit, because I want him to try the carbonara that I was craving for. 


The view of the cafe interior from my seat #2 
also, perhaps it is located at the first floor couple with MCO period. Not much of people dropping by the cafe. It was quiet and I get to have the entire cafe for ourselves, hahaha. I also love to drop by quiet cafe/eatery recently whenver possible to avoid large crowd. 


and here comes our food
My meatless carbonara. As plain as it looked, this is one of the great comfort food that warm my tummy and my hungry soul. LOLOLOL. This plate of creamy carbonara was also the reason I brought my husband here because I want him to try it out! 

We ordered food from value set lunch. So it costed Rm 12.90. It was quite afforable to be honest. Most of the delicious carbonara that I like are mostly Rm 15-20. and this carbonara not only served hot, creamy and delicious! 

As a carbonara lover, I wont said that the plate of carbonara is top notch, but quite above the average, and with the price, I am happy to drop by for the carbonara whenever I yearn for it! 



Our orders

Husband ordered the salted egg chicken chip. Rm 15.90 

According to him, it was an average chicken chop. I am actually quite hyped up when I saw the menu because they serve innovative western food. and I would order them if I wan't on meatless diet. 

Husband also said that the cross french fries is a tad bit too hard for his liking. For me the french fries was crunchy. So .. I guess the liking for food between my husband and me are quite different.. hmmmm.



Take a look at the menu! 



What I like about this restaurant is that they serve western food that I like at afforable price. 


They also included 10% service charge for dine in. 


Verdict : 
Husband's point of view 
1. Long serving time - Took like 20 minutes to prepare our orders. 

My point of view
It shows that they preapre the food freshly, and indeed the food was served hot and freshed! 



Their Nasi Lemak Rendang Chicken is the most popular one. But it was not served when I dropped by the cafe. Probably due to MCO I assume. 

If you still want to try Above cafe from the comfort of your house , you can always try order fromt he whatsapp number below =D
