Book-Club

 

Literally the only club I go to at this old age of 25. Damn it. Big chunk of 2018 has gone by. I've devoured 7 books, aiming to finish 12 books by December, hoping Santa would consider me 'nice' and put that snazzy Rolex watch into my stocking. In order to make that happen, these are a few books we have sitting on my clothing rack. (because we have no bookshelf)

 
 

. Do Less, Get More ; Shaa Wasmund

. Simple Matters ; Erin Boyle

. Soulful Simplicity ; Courtney Carver

. Destination Simple ; Brooke Mcalary

. Goodbye Things ; Fumio Sasaki


We hope you are enjoying August so far.

Back to reading!

The Northern Territory in Australia has some of the most spectacular scenery in the entire country, and there are many national parks throughout the area that cater to both visitors and tourists. A list of all national parks in Australia is available online, and you can use this list to plan a trip to the Northern Territory. Here are some of the best parks in the Northern Territory that should be on your must-visit list.


 
 
Kakadu National Park

"Escape into Kakadu National Park and celebrate the beauty of the tropical landscape, and the local indigenous culture. Accommodation options range from wilderness safari retreats, cabins and campgrounds to truly a unique hotel that is shaped to look like a crocodile." - Kakadu Accommodation

There are much to see and do in Kakadu National Park, including spectacular scenery on display, abundance of wildlife, and the Rock Art created by one of the oldest living cultures on earth. We recommend booking a night in at Kakadu National Park accommodation for comfort, convenience and absolute fun. Join in the many Ranger-guided activities or go for a hike early next morning to keep the adrenaline flowing!

 

Yeperenye / Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park

Yeperenye / Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park is 10km East of Alice Springs and is called 'the' place for wildlife spotting. Spend a full day out in the wildlife to spot while you are out. As this is a historical site, do follow safety signs and stay on designated roads and tracks. Most importantly, stay safe and hydrated!

Barranyi National Park is a picturesque destination that involves white sandy beach and crystal clear blue water. It is a people-favourite for hiking, boating and wildlife spotting activities. Besides those, there are also camping facilities available which you can rent and pay on site. The park is well organized with sign-posts and is equipped with facilities to make your stay a touch homey.

Tjuwaliyn (Douglas) Hot Springs Park

How would you like a fancy spa treatment without the fancy cost in Australia? Drive up to Tjuwaliyn Hot Springs Park for the natural thermal hot springs. Due to cultural beliefs of the local Wagiman people, men are not allowed at certain parts of the park. A tip would be to always follow the instructions or signage in the park.

 
 

We have been to Australia several times, moving from West Australia (Perth) to East Coast (Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Melbourne) up to Tasmania. The way we travelled evolved throughout the years! It's no longer cities and shopping but more sub-urban and star gazing. North island isn't one of the most popular destination when it comes to travelling in Australia therefore we hope this article gave you an insight into the little gems scattered up North.


 

The Everyday Bag

 
 

 

"The Everyday Bag" is sexy looking, durable and water resistant.

 

Here's a real life "What's In My Bag"...(throws away 3 days old cookie wrapper)

 

Recently, I got emotionally attached to this weirdly shaped bag which is groundbreaking because I hated it at the first glance and now I wish to sling it on my shoulders, over pajamas, to bed. Made out of soft pebbled faux leather, stitched with care, comes with a medium sized pouch to keep things organized and a wide canvas strap that sits on the shoulders comfortably. This was nominated as "The Everyday Bag" for a few good reasons. I live a fast pace life, we all do, finding a bag that makes us feel good, fits all of our essentials and is practical for the 24/7 isn't the easiest. It fits my planner, wallet, passport, business card holder, 8-hour cream, a flat wristlet (earphone, portable charger and cable) and a furry pouch (miscellaneous). [not here, whoops!]

I am an advocate of little handbags but there are days where we need to lug along something specially important, like an extra diaper or a bottle of beer (in my case). Wonderfully sized at 28cm x 22cm 13.5cm [Height x Length x Width]. If you would like to know more about The Everyday Bag, don't hesitate to send us an email. We have tried and tested the bag for 2 months now and would love to share our thoughts too! The Everyday Bag is selling @ RM85 with free delivery throughout Malaysia.
