Travel, Say Yes To The World, Say Yes To Self Discovery

The world is what you make of it.

Stay within your four walls, and your small world still shapes you. It exposes you to experiences unlike others - leaky taps, find a plumber; last onion, time to shop staples; and your kid having a public meltdown, handle it all like a pro. You learn to love your own company, stay economical with the finances and be creative with your time. Not to mention, independent and self-reliant in finding the solutions to your family's daily needs.

But if you are a traveller, your world is, ehmm, more like Randy Newman's "It's a jungle out there". Well not a literal green jungle perhaps, nor the jungle of the concrete kind. But the kind that affords you unexpected encounters, both good and bad; and surreal experiences, both the memorable and the forgettable.

Before we list out the top 10 super metabolism boosting foods, let us highlight a particular class of foods first which are the …

Up Your Skin, Nails And Hair Game With The Only Thing That Actually Works - Vitamin E

Vanity, Vanity! We all have it in varying degrees, at varying points in our lives.

In the peak of my health and in the rosy bloom of my youth, I had a little excess of it (if I were to make an honest confession). It had been waning ever since (a good thing in the theory of sins, not so much in real life). And it had been hurting me!

The appearance of age spots and pigmented patches had left my skin looking listless and in need of concealers and make up. My Leonine crowning glory, my thick dark hair, was now no longer as thick and was as dry as the Prairies. My nails were now brittle and traumatized. Outside of my innermost circle of friends, no one could guess the pain. Of how much these had been affecting me as a person, my vanity and indeed my confidence. Even words spoken in jest used to leave deep scars and even the thought close up selfies had me running in terror!

I would normally never confess to all these. After all I did try my best at hiding them with well blended foundati…
