Disarm You ft. Ilsey

Kaskade - Disarm You ft. Ilsey 
"The song itself is a sincere plea for uninhibited or honest love with the beautiful vocal stylings of Ilsey set to a bed of music that is intense + powerful."

7 Things - Traveling Solo

Ask anyone who’s ever traveled solo, and they probably wouldn’t want to adventure any other way. It might be daunting at first, and it’s certainly simpler for some people than it is for others. But spending time alone on the road is among the most rewarding travel experiences out there.

Whether it’s a long trip around the world or a habit of solitary weekend jaunts, here are 10 things everybody learns while travelling alone:

1. You always return home with lots of new friends
Ever noticed that you’re more likely to ask one person for directions than you are to ask a group of people? Solos are more approachable, plain and simple. Lone travellers learn that the benefits of this are twofold: not only will other travelers feel far more comfortable introducing themselves to you, but it’s actually easier for you to strike up conversation with others as well.

2. You can engage with locals on a level that only solo travelers can
You know that local folks are more open, and definitely more curious, when it’s only you walking into that hole-in-the-wall café, or sampling the pungent flavors of that roadside food stall. From a heartfelt conversation on a rickety train, to suddenly having a network of genial families happy to host you for a night, you know none of these incredible experiences would have been possible if you’d been travelling with others.

3. You’re free to adventure as you please, and it feels awesome

There is no need to compromise when travelling alone. No need to appease a friend’s unfortunate craving for an overpriced burger and fries, or their incessant complaints about mosquito bites in a jungle where you’re on travel cloud 9. As a lonesome wanderer you travel where you want, when and however you want to – all with a liberating degree of indulgence.

4. You gain a deep understanding of the destinations you’ve visited

Travelling solo, you’re more immersed in your surroundings. You notice the unique quirks, and subtle character that truly makes a place what it is. But walk around the same street chatting with an old friend, and your mind is often immersed elsewhere.

5. There is something liberating about travelling to a place where no one knows you
For some, travelling alone is like a fresh start. Or a temporary escape from the life-baggage you’re forced to lug around back home. That’s not to say you’re a different person when abroad, but you may notice how much that therapeutic anonymity has changed you by the time you return home.

6. Alone time is healthy and we rarely get enough of it
Time spent alone and unplugged forces you to really reflect on your life back home, your recent experiences on the road and the direction things are headed. Some of those thoughts aren’t always pleasant to deal with, but solo travelers know that even if solitude is a struggle at times, they’re stronger because of it.

7. Distance makes you appreciate the important people in your life
Distance makes you appreciate the people who matter most in your life back home. Especially those you’ve taken for granted. Far away and alone, you’re reminded to make the most of every second with loved ones when you return.

8. Distance teaches you that some people who you thought were important, really aren’t
The same distance can also make you realize that some people in your life aren’t quite as important as you thought they were. Be they a bad influence, a toxic love or a fair-weather friend, it’s not always a welcome realization. But it’s usually for the best.

9. When you’re a little lonely, you’ll get more creative
Whether it’s journaling, drawing, philosophizing or brainstorming future entrepreneurial endeavors, solo travelers are usually forced to find new expressive ways to amuse themselves when there’s no conversation (or wi-fi). You might have even stumbled upon your vocation.

10. Sometimes it’s fun to pretend you’re the only tourist in the world
Isn’t that really what every solo traveler secretly wants, to boldly go where no-one has gone before?

But let’s be honest for a second: very rarely are we ever as intrepid or adventurous as we’d like to imagine ourselves. 

Still, when you’re the only tourist on that bush bus to nowhere there’s a thrilling fantasy that plays out in your mind as you watch a new world go by out the window – and solo travelers know that feeling is addictive, and stays with you for the rest of your life.

Did someone say DRESS?

If you are an avid online shopper, you'll know that you can hop on to Zalora.  Zalora has tons of variety of local and international designers, wide selection of different styles and budget to suit your needs. Not wasting any time further for today's share and care lesson from yours truly (ahemm, me of course), today's sharing is the 4 stylish dresses online (did i mentioned it also gives a flat stomach illusion? Yay!) 

With these dresses you don’t have to be surprise if people won’t stop commenting on your leaner silhouette!

That your-waist-is-so-little black dress!

No one can deny that the LBD is a wardrobe staple loved by fashion-conscious women. Having it in your wardrobe is important to make you feel more attractive than Angelina Jolie on the arm of Brad Pitt while wearing it. A mesh panel in the waist smooth out any visible muffin top, so you could spare yourself the effort to suck it in.
The have-you-been-working-out dress

This colour-block style dress melts away pounds – or maybe at least creates the illusion of it! The black band down the center widens just below your widest part that always make you feel insecure, yes I know, but it makes your hips look slimmer. On the other hand, the pale grey sides at the waist make your figure look as toned as if you have been going out to the gym.
The hey-were-you-an-extra-revenge dress

You can still look ready for business in this modern take on the classic sheath. The navy cap sleeves and slight peplum skirt actually act as counterpoints to the skinny belt in aqua, creates a subtle and captivating hourglass.
The camera-doesn’t-add-any-pounds dress

You will love this dress! The v-neck wrap style has long been a staple in women’s wardrobes. The three-quarter-length sleeves keep your arms from jiggling, its body-slimming cut makes you feel smaller and the jewel tones make your skin glow!
So wait no further and get one of these 4 fab dress design from Zalora! If you purchase via mobile app, you get RM20 off on your first app purchase!

Clothes... we, woman can never have enough of them. ;)
Okay, back to online shopping. TTYL!

Love, Pauline.

Urban Flora

Bless the digital age, where music quite literally has no boundaries in how it's distributed, and more importantly, how it's made. 
Artwork by Oska

Cue Alina Baraz, a young Los Angeles-based singer by-way-of Ohio with the voice of an angel discovering her musical soulmate in Danish electronic producer Galimatias. Despite living on separate sides of the Atlantic Ocean, the two have forged a relationship in sound that can't be overlooked, and that's evident on their debut EP.
Urban Flora has been in the works since 2013, when Alina & Galimatias met through SoundCloud, of all places. They first shared a few single record releases before making the decision to create a full-fledged project that properly displayed their stylistic partnership, and that partnership delivers some of the most alluring vibes we've heard in quite sometime.
Alina's sensual vocals and Galimatias' equally ravishing backdrops are a perfect marriage on Urban Flora, which effectively sounds and feels like a dedication to the one in your life. 

Opening track "Show Me" is the equivalent of a hand moving up the thigh. Next, you're laying down with your other half to the sultry "Drift." 

Hmm... Is it just me or is it getting kind of hot in here..? 
The rest of Urban Flora delivers different tones of audio pleasure. 

The blissed-out state of "Fantasy" will bring a smile to your face like a kiss on the cheek, while sparks fly on the heavenly vibe of "Can I." 

Then there's "Maybe," where Alina shares a forbidden fruit narrative. "Lies on your lips but there's love in your eyes," Alina croons over Galimatias slow-burning beat. It's one of those, "If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right" moments, and the execution is simply stunning.

Get wrapped up in Alina Baraz & Galimatias ethereal universe and stream Urban Flora below.

We can all agree on one thing;

Pokémon was one of the top five best things about our childhoods... (admit it, we all wanted to be a Poké-Master deep down).

We've seen Pokémon in VR before, but how about getting them about and playing with them in the real world?

That's what Pokémon Go wants to achieve. 
What? Say again?
It's a collaboration between Niantic Labs (the folks behind the GPS-based Ingress) and The Pokémon Company. From what we can tell, it's going to use Niantic's location-based backend to have you catching, fighting and trading the pocket monsters in the streets around you. Of course, there's a wearable involved dubbed the Pokémon Go Plus too. It's a Bluetooth device from Nintendo that's shaped like one of the series' Pokéballs (capture-gizmos that store monsters after defeating them) that pairs with both Android and iOS to flash and vibrate, giving you alerts when something is happening in the game in your vicinity. It goes a bit further than that though, and you can even use the Go Plus to capture a monster with it.
"Our challenge was to develop a great game for smartphone devices that expressed the core values of Pokémon," the Pokémon Company's president and CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara says in a prepared statement.
And based on the scant info we have, that seems about right.

This isn't the first time the adorable little creatures have appeared on mobile devices, and it's further steps of Nintendo tip-toeing into the space.

There's no way that playing the game is going to be anything like what the involved parties are selling in the video below though, but you can always dream, right?

Capture your favorite pocket monster in 2016!

Gotta catch em' all!
