Skincare and makeup are different categories. In art terms, makeup is like covering your dirty canvas with layers of art strokes. Skincare is cleaning your dirty canvas and prolonging or bettering its original state.
Here’s my 4 steps in skincare routine to date:
Facial Cleanser (This is pretty obvious, and I’m going to skip this part as majority does it)
Toner (This step is my favourite as it cleanses dirt that you can miss with the first step plus hydrate your skin. A cleanser tends to dry out your skin, and this helps with moisture).
Serums (I’ve recently added Vitamin C serum into my regime – yet to see if this is effective. Otherwise, apply any creams that mends your skin issues, e.g. blackheads, acne etc.)
Moisturiser (Always an important step in skin maintenance and helps with anti-aging)
As for the +1 step, it depends on whether it’s morning or night.
You would want +1 to be sunscreen if it’s daytime. I personally prefer SPF 50 as it offers high protection from sun rays in my country.
If it’s nighttime, the +1 step would be my eye cream – for dark circles or puffy eyes.
Bonus: I did not mention this as I don’t do it daily even though it’s recommended, but sheet masks are a step that you can add to your routine. I apply this when I feel like my face needs extra moisture that day or to relax.
And there you go! This can be a skincare routine for anyone who wants something quicker or lacks time.
Before Cancel culture was a norm, television companies have been doing it. Which is a shame if you’re hooked into a series only to have it abruptly end.
Here’s a list of awesome TV series that got cancelled:
Into the Badlands This has been my favourite so far. No doubt haters always find something to complain about, but what I enjoy about this tv series is the world-building, culture and lore. It is rare to see an American tv series with martial arts, and I welcome this fresh and high-octane drama. Costumes that differentiate the allegiance with Barons and properties are also worth a mention. Setting: Post-apocalyptic martial arts series in dangerous feudal lands.
Firefly The adventures in different planets and civilizations leave you curious and wanting for more. Setting: Space, Western drama in the year 2517.
Dracula No introductions needed as it’s pretty obvious from the title. Horror drama. Setting: Victorian.
Now here’s a list of awesome TV series that should’ve been cancelled:
Game of Thrones We know this one. It was great until the last season. Cancelling out the last season would’ve saved this beloved piece than finishing it and leaving a bitter aftertaste with the horrendous last season.
How I met your Mother It was awesome, really. Funny until…it wasn’t. For the love of all things, quit dragging on how the MC met their mother when it should’ve ended a season or more ago.
Having said that, I’m not really a fan of the cancel culture. What’s the tv series that you wish were cancelled or wasn’t?
The first feeling of emotions, Erupted like the roar of lions, Either from your own or others, Absorbed like an unwanted sponge in tethers.
At the crossroads, there were two paths, A decision to make for the Empath, To go down the destructive mines, Or to wind back the birth line.
If you chose the destructive path, Insensitive and illogical minds incurred your wrath, You asked, “Why do I need to put up with others’ shit?” “Why do they throw their feelings into my peaceful pit?” You would eventually lose your powers, But you would have peace in your lonesome tower.
Otherwise, if you continued with your natural feelings, It might keep you reeling, You might never feel numb, In fact, you would continue feeling dumb, But you remained in the humane path of future and past, The question was, could you last?
There was never any black or white, It was either fight or flight, If you thought the choice was obvious, Congratulations on discovering your cockiness.
Have you ever asked yourself, If not now, then when? Why risk it when I can sit behind the majority of men? Breathe, they will judge you behind your back, See, judged by everything they lack, Speak, they will make a mockery of you, Live, you could be one of the few, Courage, if you want to create something new.
If this is stupidity, Then what about those who remain in their same positions day after day? If it will lead to a penalty, What is the difference if you let others determine how you fade away?
If you want progress, You need to take the first step out of this mess, Society will criticise anyway, So, why let others decide when you can determine your way?
I was sceptical when I first read about the reviews, and I did not like Lola Bunny’s new design (she looks like an aunt lol). So, I had low expectations when I watched it. It turns out to be enjoyable and light-hearted. Anyway, without much further ado, here are the deets.
Sounds: [ ] Mute it [✔] Can’t remember so no comment [ ] Adding to my playlist [ ] Everyone, let’s sing!
Graphics: [ ] Eyesore [ ] Not bad [ ] Good [✔] Eye-candy
Plot: [ ] What plot? [✔] Nothing special but enjoyable [ ] Good table talk [ ] Mind-blown Inception style

This photo’s taken with Fujifilm XT-30 camera. The place advertised itself as resort but glamping is a more accurate term for it. There are fun outdoor activities but sleeping there was no fun. By the time I came home, my body’s bitten by sandflies. Sandfly bites are worse than mosquitoes. They’re itchy and can spread if you scratch. They also last longer than mosquito bites and can leave marks.
Bearing the sins of all men, The treacherous deeds of thoughts, mouth and pen, Your glory filled the Earth, Yet blinded, people question your worth, Not understanding the hand behind the science, This world lacking in conscience, Worshipped your creation, And stamped on you who had Risen, Even your followers used your name in vain, Your loved ones adding more to your pain, Yet they ask, why not me? why always me? Me, me, me, that’s all they see, And yet we wonder, the signs of dust and everything dying away, Shows we are far away from the way, Of the one who has raised, All creations that lived.
You were supposed to protect me, But why does your beauty take priority? I thought I knew you, Less it seems as time flew, Your weaknesses pushed everyone through the edge, One by one they jumped over the hedge, To flee what may be lost, Desperation held on the most, I stopped running to turn around, To listen to the agonising sound, Perhaps we should turn back, Perhaps we should cut the guardian some slack, For the qualities the guardian lack, For in the fire, metal is forged, Perhaps Guardians too, maybe not all is lost.
You said up to you, but lose your cool, How is this up to me? When your logic is off to all who can see? Chaos after chaos you stir, Trouble and trauma we concur, Dictate our living is your hobby, Your false reputation all you lobby, Help, why are most blinded? My love to you, I now rescinded. Lost I am, lost are you, My beloved who took me for a fool. No more I said, Independence, we now made.
Friends that we are, They tell you they care, Yet no feelings or actions they bare, Not a word, not a sound, How will connections be bound? Drop after drop, they disappear, And years after when they reappear, How very awkward, We are towards, The friends we said we care, Perhaps this is very much the expected scare. Troubles filled you, they run, Only when you are a clown, they bathe under you like the sun, Then we’ll know if we are friends, When it ends.
