Review: Pure Strength Black Diamond Cleansing Bar

Image
This is my first attempt in writing a product review. Not sure how it goes, but I am just going to do it with my words anyway...

Today, we are going to look at Pure Strength Black Diamond Cleansing Bar by Human Nature.
How is this bar of soap looks like? Well, as you can see at the website, it looks like this:
Yep, and this is how it was described by Human Nature:

"Pure Strength Black Diamond Cleansing Barcontains nature's powerful deep-cleansing ingredient Bamboo Charcoal known in East Asia as the “Black Diamond”, said to have numerous health benefits. It’s charged with all-natural premium powerful ingredients and none of the compromising chemicals so staying clean and looking good goes beyond good grooming. It’s good stewardship.

Our cleansing bar is cold-processed, which means that it takes more time to make than your usual chemical soaps, which are hot-processed. Hot-processing removes the naturally hydrating glycerin in soap, which is often replaced afterward with …

Dream of finding a job in Singapore and a primary school mate

Now if you're still reading this blog and wonder why I kept writing about dream, you can check out previous posts for the reason behind it, otherwise, here is another account of dream which I still remember by the time I am awake...

Somewhere in Singapore, I was holding my backpack and asking for a temporary stay with my primary school friend who was working in Singapore (in dream) before I got my rental unit.

"Where is your house?" looking around a very run down apartment, I asked.

"Climb the stairs all the way to final level. There is only one unit at final floor and you would not be mistaken!"

"OK, See you!"

As I reached the final staircase of the apartment, a very modern and nicely furbished unit appeared in front of me. It amazed me because how can this unit can be so different compare to the rest of the units below this level? Anyway, I pressed on the door bell and she welcomed me in...

"As expected for a lawyer, you have such a wonderful house…

800

800? As in monetary term or? If you are an active bicyclist in Penang island, you will be familiar to this number because it is one of those favourite stop point for cyclist in Penang which looks like this:


OK, that fellow in yellow is my bestie's colleague, and that was his second attempt to achieve this checkpoint (man, look at his facial expression as compare to first attempt, I am sure you know how someone feels like to ride a long distance without any prior riding experience).

I started routine cycling since Samuel (the guy with helmet) influenced and encouraged me and the other best friend of ours to exercise regularly. Considering pros and cons for most exercise available, we finally settle with cycling (though we know that swimming is the best considering it creates least impact to the body).
It was nice cycling trip if you have chance to cycle along this path and this path is usually filled with cyclists during weekend morning. Since I am departing from my house in George…

Captain Ball

Captain ball? That sounds like something you play with team (of course...) and there is someone leading the team, right?

Do you know what is that? I throw the same question to my friend who is a American missionary and he just shook his head...

Ok, so this captain ball...
Still no clue?
Now you probably got it right? I don't know where and when it was originated but I got to play this first time 4 years back in church youth group and it seems that Penang church youth groups play this very often and they even have competition for this sport!

So how do you play this game? It works pretty much like basketball except that you cannot bounce the ball on the floor (which means only pass is legit) and one member from the team will act as the goal post, like this:
In the other words, referee will toss the ball up air to mark the start of a game and players from both sides will try to grab the ball like …
