Dear friends, let us practice loving each other,
for love comes from God and those who are loving
and kind show that they are the children of God,
and that they are getting to know him better.

The things that attracted me to Cameron Highlands are the cool air and beautiful flowers. Whenever I returned from Cameron Highlands, my smartphone camera will be filled with photos, most of them will be of flowers. These flower shots were taken from various farms and parks we visited and some were from the roadsides. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

And peoples from remotest lands will worship him.

Sew In With Closure Tutorial

With the changing of fashion trend, more and more women prefer to change their hairstyles. Celebrities usually lead the direction of fashion. Under their influence, deep wave hairstyle has become popular among ladies, since this kind of hairstyle can greatly increase the volume of your hair. To achieve this kind of charming look, you can buy some hair products such as deep wave weave and cheap hair bundles. Besides, you can sew in with closure, which can make your hairstyle more natural.

Sewing in hair products is a good way to change hairstyle with great flexibility. Most of women would like to know how to sew in with closure. Keep in mind that braiding your own hair is everything for sewing in. It will decide the success of the following steps.

To braid your hair, the first thing you need to do is to oil your hair and make sure that your hair is moisturized. Braiding steps can be described as follows: Divide one section of your hair into three pieces. Then grab the right section with your right hand and the left section with your left hand, letting the middle section hang free. In your right and left hands, hold the strands so that you're grasping them against your palm with your middle, ring and little fingers, keeping your index fingers and thumbs free. Then cross the left section over the middle section and cross the right section over the middle section. Continue braiding and finally secure the braid. Do two little braids right in the front to lay your closure. In the back of your hair, connect each braid. DON'T make your braids too tight. This is crucial to avoid any hair loss.

After braiding your hair, you need to sew in with closure. When you sew in the closure, you can follow two steps: sew the sides first and then sew the back. You don't need to sew the front. Sewing two sides first can make sure that the part of closure and your own part are perfectly aligned. These tips will give you a natural look. If you sew in the closure tightly, it can be worn for 2-3 months.

If you don't want to achieve a new hairstyle by sewing in, flexi rod and hot tools are also good choices. With flexi rod, you can achieve a heatless hairstyle without any damage. But you need to wear it overnight. If you are in hurry, it will not be a good option. Hot tools such as curling iron and straightener can make a new hairstyle in minutes. But high heat will cause damage to your hair. It may take out the moisture and cause tangle. If you usually use hot tools, a good care cannot be ignored.

Cheap human hair lace front wigs are also a good choice to make a new hairstyle. With all the hairs have been sewed in, you don't need to waste any time to sew in or to curl your own hair. Just put the wigs on. Most of wigs can be colored or restyled at your desire. Since it is not attached to your scalp, it cannot get the oil that it should be. So no matter how great you wig is, a good care should not be ignored.

Jeulia Top Womens Skull Rings Online Sale

Women love rings. It can be engagement ring, wedding ring or just rings as fashion accessories. We usually see rings being worn on the middle finger or the second last finger by both men and women as a sign to show that they are either engaged to be married or are married.

In this modern age, there is no fast rule on which finger to wear your ring or rings. I have seen people wearing more than one rings and sometimes, I see ring on a person's last finger, or the pointer finger (2nd finger) or even on the thumb! I suppose wearing a ring on a different finger has its own meaning for the wearer or signifies the group the person belongs to.
Since we are talking about rings, I want to share with you about Jeulia Jewelry which I came across recently. Jeulia Jewelry specially designed and handcrafted in-house their rings and what caught my attention are the skull rings!
Surprisingly, most of these women skull rings are designed in such a way that unless you look closely, the skull is not very noticeable. These rings are very fashionable and with exciting designs to choose from.

Misty Morning & Bee Farm, Cameron Highlands.

It was a cold night in Cameron Highlands. Early next morning, I opened the door to the balcony and took these misty photos. The time was about 7.00 am.
The white patches are the roofs of farms.
Back view of The Square as viewed from the balcony.
View of the Copthorne Hotel (Equatorial Hotel), a short distance away. The long rolls are the roofing for the farms.
We walked over to The Square to check if the shops are opened for breakfast.
It was too early and most of the shops were still closed at 7.30 am and some were in the midst of getting things ready for business. We had to go elsewhere for breakfast.
The road was almost dessert except for one or two cars.
New development on the other side of the road.
Flowers by the road side.
We walked back to the apartment building to get the car and drove to Tanah Rata for breakfast. I didn't take any photos of our breakfast. We took Indian breakfast - tosai, vada, paruppu vadai and pulled tea with milk (teh tarik) and nescafe. Breakfast for 6 people cost MYR 32.00.
There is a Bee Farm next to The Square. We visited this farm before we checked out from the apartment.
This bee hive is blocked off by glass panels. We can see bees flying around this box.

Below is a tricycle with a stainless steel ice cream box
for joining Tuesday's Treasures.
Those days when I was a kid, we used to look out for the ice-cream seller coming in his tricycle carrying an ice-cream box. We could hear his ice-cream bell ringing before we could see him coming on his tricycle.

Fight on for God. Hold tightly to the eternal life that God
has given you and that you have confessed with such
a ringing confession before many witnesses.
(1 Timothy 6:12, The Living Bible-TLB)
