Stop in Singapore | OrganicIsBeautifulEthnic quarters:

While exploring the city of Singapore, I encountered such quarters:

  1. Little India: From a distance, I could hear Hindi songs being played in a loudspeaker. I was astonished, thinking why was it played in a loudspeaker in Singapore. I walked towards the sound and suddenly the buildings, shops, streets, people and the overall aura of the place changed. I found myself in Little India. I saw shops selling brass jewelry and beautiful colorful sarees. I had delicious Indian cuisine which included roti, daal, crisp potatoes and chicken curry. I experienced India in this beautiful country.
  2. Chinatown: I was excited when I saw yet another country’s quarter in Singapore. I tried the Chinese cuisine. I had the delicious Tian Tian rice and oyster pancakes. I learnt kite making from a vendor there. I wore colorful masks too fully immersing myself in the culture. I also visited the Thiang Hock Keng temple. I loved the intricate designs, elaborately painted doors and the typical Chinese style structure. It felt as if I was transported to China.

Night Safari:

This is one of the most exciting things to do in Singapore. The Night Safari was a special experience for me because this was the first time I was exploring the zoo at night and that too in a tram. I saw quite a few animals such as lions, tigers, hippos etc. The darkness of the night makes it a thrilling and unique experience. One should must experience this especially with their family.

Camping in a deserted island:

This is the most thrilling and memorable experience in Singapore. It is not covered in most of the tourist’s itineraries. There is Kusu and St. John’s islands which are further afield and are accessible by ferry. I went to the St. John’s Island. I took my own food and water as there are no restaurants on the island. The beach of the island is mesmerising and fresh. I had sea bath and made barbeques. Then I spent the whole night star gazing on the beach. The night time had an enigmatic beauty. The twinkling stars adorned the night sky and the whole beach was glistening with silvery moonlight. I was there enjoying every moment to the fullest and adoring the elegance of the Singapore skyline visible from there.

Sentosa Island:

This island is rightly called the state of fun with a huge Merlion sitting on it. There are many thing which can be done there. Some of the best are:

  1. Underwater World: I step on the escalator and it takes me through a huge underground aquarium covering me from three sides having a large variety of sea fishes such as myriads of jellyfishes, rays, sharks and much more. I was astonished to see such a huge variety of fishes. The humongous aquarium had Open Ocean habitat, which made me feel if I am on the cavernous ocean floor!
  2. Songs of the Sea: This is my best experience on Sentosa Island. The world famous laser show happens on the sea side. A beautiful story is shown through laser lights on the water is truly awe inspiring and fun to watch. The dancing lights and the spraying water blend together to form a great entertainment for tourists.
  3. Beaches: Sentosa Islands also offers beautiful beaches.

  4. Tanjong beach: This is an ideal beach for people looking for tranquility and peace. It is the romantic beach. The tranquil atmosphere provides relaxation and is away from the hustle bustle of the city.
  5. Siloso Beach: When I went to this beach, it was polar opposite of the Tanjong beach. There is excitement all over the beach. I played volleyball here with random people and made some new friends. Amazing places to eat and bars can be found here. In the night, this beach is wide awake partying. I thoroughly enjoyed the night culture of this beach, thanks to the quality live music being played, good alcohol and wonderful food by the sea shore.

Nightlife:

Singapore has a vibrant and sophisticated nightlife. Some of the best are:

  1. 1-Altitude Gallery & Bar: This is the first thing that comes to my mind. The bar is on the 63rd floor and provides a beautiful view of the city. I found the place very sophisticated and the service was great. Food and booze are of top quality. After traveling for the whole day, I went there at 8 and even though it got late for me but I did not feel like leaving the place. I loved the ambience and one could just stare at the scintillating city forever.
  2. Zouk: I love dance music and Zouk turned out to be a heaven to me. This awarding-winning venue has been at the forefront of the club scene in the city for over two decades. The crowd here mainly consisted of the youngsters. I danced my way through the night having the time of my life. The feeling was ecstatic. It is a must go club for dance loving people.

The nightlife of Singapore has something in store for everyone. The night never gets boring here. Excitement levels touch the sky with electrifying bars, pubs and discos. The perfect blend of beaches, nightlife, entertainment, adventure and fun filled activities makes Singapore one of the most attractive countries in the world.

Thank you for stopping by,

Benefits of Ginger

Ginger is my Beauty Booster

Ginger on skincare? Sorry! Yes. You heard correctly 😉 Native from China and India, ginger is way more than just that an ordinary plants. It has a number of properties to qualify as a beauty booster as well. And the best part? The ingredient is one that is almost at all times sitting at the bottom of your vegetable basket. So no need to run around digging up plants for this one! Here are 5 reasons why you skin should be getting more of ginger.

Benefits of Ginger
Lets talk about the benefits of Ginger – OrganicIsBeautiful
  • Burn Support

It is surprising to know that the natural situation of the skin is regained if ginger is applied directly to the place where the burn has taken place. It also helps to reduce the pain for the burn. Besides rubbing a fresh ginger slice, one can also apply fresh ginger juice for the same effect. If it is applied twice or thrice a day, it can help to remove different scars too.

This takes effect in 6 to 12 weeks while the ginger slice should be fresh every time you apply it.

You Will Never Thought That Knowing Ginger Skincare Could Be So Beneficial!
  • Anti-Aging

Ginger has more than 40 antioxidants in it.

That’s an impressive number to keep in mind!

This is why it greatly helps in anti-aging. The toxins are flushed out due to which the body circulation of the blood is improved. This in turn helps to have improvement in the skin appearance because it provides more nutrients to the skin.

They also prevent damage from different free radicals which is why the youth of the skin is not lost. The elasticity and firmness is maintained and aging is slowed down.

  • Acne and Spots

Acne and spots or different related blemishes are more like a curse to many people. Ginger can work wonders here. Ginger is a very powerful antiseptic and cleansing agent. It helps to keep the skin clear as well as free of any residues. As a result, the skin is invigorated and the blemishes are also lessened.

Acne-causing bacteria is also killed by ginger which is why it is also known as the best natural acne-fighting weapon of all. This way the rate of acne formation is also minimized.

  • White Scars

Hyper-pigmentation can also be solved with the help of ginger. The white spots are now no more of a problem at all. The skin becomes lighter or white at some places in comparison to other patches of the skin. The use of ginger reduces the appearance of this pigmentation.

If you apply a fresh slice of ginger to your skin and leave it on for some time, then the results can sometimes be seen in just 2 weeks.

If you also have any other ginger benefits make sure you tell me in the comments below too.

How Yoga Change my Life?

How yoga change my life

Yoga

In this modern age, we all are strongly routine bound. Every single step is according to our everyday routine. There’s hardly any chance to get rid of it. Obviously, getting rid of it isn’t good for ourselves as we might lose our concentration and opportunity to shine in our life, right? Well, that’s not completely false. However, following such strict routine is never good for yourself. Such routine may help us in our career but not to us – our soul and our physical condition.

We all want to live safe and sound. We want mental peace, physical fitness and enjoy our life. Well, how’s that possible? The best way to achieve this stage is to take exercise regularly. Exercise is one of the best ways to keep yourselves fit and sound, physically and mentally balanced. However, it might take a good bit of time and thus, not compatible with our everyday routine, right?

I’m a typical person in the world with normal and typical everyday routine with tight schedules of everyday works. I didn’t enjoy a good health and most of the time was anxious about my future, my career and my life deep inside. I found that exercise would be the perfect remedy for me, but it couldn’t fit into my routine.

That’s when I started searching all over the internet and my community. Surprisingly, I found yoga the best thing for me. Yoga is one of the oldest types of physical exercise that involve a number of physical and mental condition that rejuvenates you physically and mentally. Yoga was invented around 5000 years ago, in the middle of Asia. Over days, it has evolved into one of the best assets of anyone’s life.

With yoga, I not only enjoy myself, but I was also able to change my entire life! Yes, yoga can tap you into a number of advantages and controls over yourself that can be really life-changing.

Yoga in my daily life | OrganicIsBeautiful
Yoga in my daily life | OrganicIsBeautiful

I was always fond of physical exercises because of their benefits. I went to the gym (a few times) and did yoga here and there, but didn’t grow up a habit of doing those regularly. I had a part-time job during my free time. My memory isn’t good at all, so I had to invest a lot more times in my studies. So, going to gym regularly was a hard goal to accomplish for me. About a year ago, my friend told me about yoga – how it could help me in my career. I thought, “Alright, I could afford a few moments to do some stretching!” The term “some stretching” was the most understatement of the year for me.

At first, I stormed the internet, watched YouTube videos and found a few good poses to do. It was tough at first, but as time went on, I started gaining more flexibility and all the other benefits yoga has given to me.

  • Physical Improvement

Yoga is a very old form of exercise that’s being refined and getting better day by day. It is one of the best forms to keep your body fit and healthy in every criteria. We might think of numerous types of workouts, but nothing is so easily sustainable like yoga.

For example, you start doing some simple, free hand workouts and determined to do it the rest of your life. In most cases, you hardly can continue it for a couple weeks! I tried doing so and the result is exactly what I told just now.

But in the case of yoga, I didn’t feel too tiring or boring. It was a very interesting feeling when I first did yoga and when I started continuing it. It’s a really good workout that can work on your fatigue, muscles, and flexibility at the same time. You’ll be able to enjoy the improved physical strength with a better, wider range of motion within a few weeks!

It may sound surprising, but yogaa can actually help you out with your skin! There are several poses in yoga that works on glowing skin. If you’re interested in yoga or doing yoga regularly, you might need these poses to enhance your skin care. Some of the poses are – Padmasana, Adho Mukha Svanasana, Dhanurasana, Halasana etc.

The main mechanism here is to supply more blood to your skin and stabilize your blood pressure under your skins’ vessels. That’s why I recommend doing yoga in an open place where there’s more oxygen density. For example, a garden, a park would be the perfect choice for these poses.

  • Mental Improvement

This is, perhaps, the most important fact of yoga that it can improve your mental condition very easily. Yoga specializes in mental conditions and that’s the main reason yoga is so popular amongst people.

Yoga increases your body awareness, reduce muscle tension, strain, and controls over your uncontrolled emotions. Yoga consists of breathing exercises, poses, and meditation that are practically proved to be related to mental wellness.

In my case, I was always worried and stressed about my whole life – my career, my job and my family. If you’re a grown-up person, you already know how much pressuring these factors might be.

Specifically being reduced from most types of recreations was gradually increasing the mental pressure on me. Fortunately, I found yoga to release all my bad emotions. Within 1-2 weeks, I started to feel completely fresh and happy about myself. I’m now completely free from all types of depressions of my life! 

Yogaa can also work as one of the natural remedies as well. Our body mechanism is very complex and yoga helps it to get stronger and more flexible. That way, you’re less prone to diseases, especially related to heart and blood circulation. With yoga, your control over yourself will get you rid of all other types of mental disorders as well.

Since I started a regular yoga practice, I’m leading a better, more organized lifestyle. As my mind is always fresh, I’m even finding my studies a lot easier. For a better expertise on yoga, I’m currently training under a yoga club with my instructor. She’s teaching me a lot more new poses and ways to ease myself and my mind.

I’ve also earned some fans! A number of my friends were surprised to see my positive changes and wanted to learn the techniques from me. At first, I felt a little shy. But gradually, I felt confident about myself and expressed the effect of yoga on me. Many of them now do yoga regularly and none of them suffer from the burdens of life anymore.

That’s why I always inspire everyone to do yoga regularly. My story with yoga was to inspire you as well. It doesn’t take a lot of time and it’s a lot easier than you could ever imagine. Just get started. One day, you’ll have the feeling like me – a positive look towards the world.
