Success With These 4 Ds

Time is flying faster than ever, hope your 2015 is going well.

I was very busy since the new year started, beside work on the year 2015 ‘to do list’, clear up the unfinished tasks, sign up some new courses and schedule out the new plan (etc), there are many things and lots of changes in my life as well, anyway.

By saying it, if you haven’t got connected with me on Google+ and Pinterest, let’s get connected.

Also, I haven’t seen you show up on Facebook for while, hopefully to see you back on board soon.

So what is your 2015’s plan? I am not talking about your new year resolutions, it is more about what you want to do, to achieve and to move forward to a better life.

In 2015, turn your ego loose and focus on fundamentals. Here are the 4Ds I would like to share with you, as long as you work on them, your dream to success in 2015 will become true.


Let’s talk about determination. As I know, many of you have been truly determined to succeed in the things you do, you have worked hard on them, and some of you have succeeded, some of you haven’t.

how to success See, life is like rolling stone, it is different and changing every moment, sometime it is sunshine, sometime it is storming, sometime it is in the shade.

We all face difficult and challenge time, but it’s your attitude to the situation that matters, not anything else. Your attitude can either bring you down or raise you to greater heights.

In the other words, inwardly, you need a strong ego, otherwise you’ll believe all the people who say that you don’t have the talent, or there’s too much competition, or simply that you won’t succeed is true.

However, it is always good to be humble on the outside and believe in yourself.


Every minutes, hours, days and years are different. New challenges will always come, changes will happen, whether it is happen for good or not so good, just accept, go with the flow and be thankful.

And don’t forget to make sure your experience is focus on being more effective instead of just more efficient.

Eliminate the noise and focus on the most important tasks at hand: just do it and get things done!


Whatever the field you are working in, I believe you have been through and experiences lots of changes in the past years. Combining these changes with the changes to the economy, it is not easy for many people to get by and/or to get their products or services out there for people to see, especially for people who are selling stuff through the Internet.

Speaking of selling products online, competition is very high in this industry, however, do not be intimidated by the big guys, instead, leverage them – focus on your audiences, subscribers, prospects, customers and improving their experience. That means develop and produce high quality relevant content for the target groups. As competition for attention increases, shortcuts will continue to falter.

So difficult doesn’t mean impossible. When things change, you have to change as well.


Bundle the word ‘deadlines’ with the word ‘goals’ together will be more powerful and effective.

I don’t know about you, for me, one thing that I always found helpful is to set specific smaller goals with deadlines to meet, narrow the scope, write them down on the paper. Sometime I also use images, pictures etc and post them to my vision board to got me reminded on the things I have to do.

When you are facing the difficult time, calm down and do not allow those situations take control, be determined, set goals with deadlines and Just Do It! The results really turn out amazing.

To succeed in 2015 is the same as to succeed in 1915 or 2115, it is not a big deal, just like we know there will be gravity, water will still be wet, there are laws that don’t depend on predicting the future.

Finding that ‘wow’ and present it to the world with your unique personality, and do it sincerely.

Now is your turn, hope you find this short notes helpful. Let’s make 2015 the best year ever – for your life, study, business or whatever you do!

Experience the Yummy Chocolate Cake in Making at Kangar

After heard so many people talking about Laziz Home Bakery’s delicious bakery and pastry, I decided to go pay a visit at their shop.

This bakery shop is in the Kangar, some of you guys may or may not know, some of you may never heard about this place. Let me briefly tell you bit about Kangar first.

Kangar is the state capital of Perlis, Malaysia. It is in the northernmost point of Peninsular Malaysia and is situated by the Perlis River, it is surrounded by fields and farms.

Perlis province is Malaysia’s tiniest and is home to a variety of natural attractions. Kangar, is the smallest state capital in Malaysia and its inhabitants are mostly farmers and civil servants.

Kangar Perlis, Malaysia

The state by itself makes an interesting little stop as you either head into or out of Malaysia, like go to Pulau Langkawi or Thailand.

As you can imagine Kangar maybe the state’s little capital, but the royal family and Sultan have their residences in Arau (royal capital), some 10 km away. Padang Besar, which is one of Malaysia’s gateways to Thailand is about 30 minutes’ drive from Kangar.

KTM’s railway line also runs through the state and eventually crosses into Thailand at Padang Besar, a small international border crossing south of the major Thai transport hub of Hat Yai.

Kangar Perlis Malaysia

Once you’re in Kangar, you’ll see the town center is spread out along Perlis River and its tributaries bubbling down from the mountains in the north.

A couple of shop house-lined crisscrossing streets and lanes compromise the town center. The small town square together with Pasar Raya shopping complex is the most happening area, with banks, a post office, small roadside restaurants and a crowded KFC that’s open 24/7.

A beautiful place, right? :-)

Ok, now let’s go back to my experience the yummy chocolate cake in making at Kangar.

The exactly the site of Laziz Home Bakery is at No. 11 Medan Niaga 12, Behor Indah, Jalan Behor Pulai, 01000 Kangar Perlis, Malaysia (long address).


The shop is small but they offer many different kinds of bread, cakes, beverage, pastry and etc.

I heard many people talking about their products – the yummy taste, high quality stuff, as well as care and friendly service they provided, so I decided go there and give it a try.

Yes, there are various products in the shop, all look great and hard to choose which one to go for, finally I had Puding Karamel, Blueberry Cheese Tart and Red Velvet Cupcake, the taste of these products are really good and delicious.

Laziz Home Bakery Pastry

They also have lots of cakes sell in the shop. However, since I am not a cake person so I didn’t buy.

The good thing is while I was there, the chef Nabilah is about to make a made by order chocolate cake for her customer. I was curious about the cake making process, after talking to her, she let me go in to her kitchen to take a video. Ahhhh, how wonderful is it?

I was amazed by her skills, with less than 10 minutes, the cake done (it is an impossible thing for me to do).

Here is the video I took, have a look :-)

The Paradise on Earth: The Ocean Residence Langkawi Malaysia

If you like travel and if you want a cozy retreat away from the crowd, this is one of the beautiful place to be!

Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. It situated just where the Indian Ocean narrows down into the Straits of Melaka and surrounded by turquoise sea. The interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills.

There are over 170 hotels on this island, The Ocean Residence is one of them.

The Ocean Residence


This venue is at the edge of Kuah city and in a quiet Langawi site. If you want to go to the town or tourist area, you need to take taxi or rent a car (before go to the hotel)

It is a friendly, family run resort and it is perfect for honeymoon, or for a family holiday, personal retreat, chill out or for restoring your well-being.

Me and my husband arrived hotel in the evening, the check-in was fast and staff is friendly and helpful.

The Room

The decoration in the room is simple but nice, the furniture and decor matched each other, you can park your car (if you rent a car) exactly in front of your room. So perfect!

We stayed at Blue Ocean Suite, the room is big and clean, the bed was comfortable. It has kitchen facilities includes tea and coffee-making, a fridge and space to prepare light meals and snacks.

The Ocean Residence Suite Kitchen

Free WiFi and premium television channels are provided as well, the WiFi’s signal strength is strong, but there is no telephone in the room.

The toiletries product they provided in the bathroom is Paul Penders natural organic toiletries (I like it after use the shampoo, conditional and shower gel, they are really good quality stuff).


The Ocean Residence is beautiful and calm. I believe all the room at this place have sea view. It’s very nice view when you open your window, you can see sunrise, the beauty sea & coconut tree. We really enjoy the view from our room.

SunRise Langawi

I like the greenery and the gorgeous plants all around the resort! They have three nice clean pool, here is one of them – the amazing infinity pool that overlooks the sea and surrounding islands (early morning view).

Swimming Pool Langawi


The breakfast was simple – toast and some local fare but healthy, we enjoyed it, as staff were friendly and the restaurant had a great scene, which allow you to have a magnificent view of the sea and surrounding hills, truly breakfast with a view.

I had few glasses while stay at The Ocean Residence Langkawi, I feel very fresh afterwards (see the detail below). There are over 5000 plants planted in the resort, basically it is everywhere at property (organic grow).

My Blissful and Memorable Trip to Malaysia

Malaysia Map

I have thought for while to go visit the neighboring country Malaysia, finally got time to go there and had an amazing blissful trip.

As diverse as its culture, Malaysia have 11 states and 2 federal territories (Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya. The country is on the Malay Peninsula in southeast Asia, the nation also includes Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo to the east.

The first impression I had about this country is its greenness, clean street and well-organized infrastructure. Of course, the food is fantastic as well (ate a lot).

On the way from airport to Putrajuya, my friends told us that most of Malaysia is covered by forest, with a mountain range running the length of the peninsula (no wonder I saw so many trees).

Here are some more information about this beautiful and cultural country:

The ancestors of the people who now inhabit the Malaysian peninsula first migrated to the area between 2500 and 1500 B.C. Those living in the coastal regions had early contact with the Chinese and Indians; seafaring traders from India brought with them Hinduism, which was blended with the local animist beliefs. As Muslims conquered India, they spread the religion of Islam to Malaysia. In the 15th century, Islam acquired a firm hold on the region when the Hindu ruler of the powerful city-state of Malacca, Parameswara Dewa Shah, converted to Islam.

British and Dutch interest in the region grew in the 1800s, with the British East India Company’s establishment of a trading settlement on the island of Singapore. Trade soared, with Singapore’s population growing from only 5,000 in 1820 to nearly 100,000 in just 50 years. In the 1880s, Britain formally established protectorates in Malaysia. At about the same time, rubber trees were introduced from Brazil. With the mass production of automobiles, rubber became a valuable export, and laborers were brought in from India to work the rubber plantations.

Following the Japanese occupation of Malaysia during World War II, a growing nationalist movement prompted the British to establish the semiautonomous Federation of Malaya in 1948. But Communist guerrillas took to the jungles to begin a war of national liberation against the British, who declared a state of emergency to quell the insurgency, which lasted until 1960.

The independent state of Malaysia came into existence on Sept. 16, 1963, as a federation of Malaya, Singapore, Sabah (North Borneo), and Sarawak. In 1965, Singapore withdrew from the federation to become a separate nation. Since 1966, the 11 states of former Malaya have been known as West Malaysia, and Sabah and Sarawak as East Malaysia ..

To shorten the story, I put together a video about my trip for you to watch (see below).

It was a very good and blissful holiday, got a chance to learn and experience different culture, ate many yummy local food, visited those historical places, museum and prayed at different mosques.

If you are thinking of where to go for your vacation, I highly recommended you go Malaysia, there are lots of awesome places to visit, it is the perfect place for holiday.
