The Culture of Sexual Harassment in University

Perhaps we should start from the definition of sexual harassment. It refers to unwanted, unwelcome sexual conducts which are deemed to be inappropriate. It can be in a form of verbal, gestural, visual, psychological and physical. 

Why out of the sudden we are talking about sexual harassment again? 
In the university that I came from, the lecturers are bound to certain rules whereby they are not allowed to bring students out for a meal, to text students inappropriately and so on. 

What is interesting?
It still happened. 
There is this recent rumor whereby a lecturer fetched 2 female students back to their accommodation on  a Saturday. Who has extra tutorial on Saturday right?
He also texted female students frequently and the group leaders. If it is in a professional manner, I am sure you will address people by their name and not 'little turtle' or as such right?
What is more you don't need to text students and said that you are alone hoping to go out to have a meal right?
It is not just limited to texts or outings. 
In the office with the door widely opened, there is inappropriate amount of touching as well. From kissing the cheeks, patting on the butt.... 
In a closed door, there are even hugging, kissing, foundling or inappropriate sexual favour from oral to hand job. 

What is all these happening in the university where it is supposed to be a sacred place for students to acquire their knowledge and skills. Students are in the minors position in any case and the lecturers are supposed to be in a position of trust. Students are always too afraid to report and it is least expected for such things to happen from their beloved lecturers.

Let us take a minute and ponder the matter to see what can be done. It is an issue that fews are willing to talk about and hence there is hardly any awareness.

Why is a lecturer who is supposed to be in the position of trust violated the trust?

Solution for Dark & Uneven Skin Tone



Looking for a solution for your dark and uneven skin tone? You have come to the right page! Do stay till the end because I have discount code for you all! 

The answer is
B.liv: O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

There are different type of masks in the market ranging from sheet mask, gel mask, clay mask and night mask. However, this O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask is something special because it turns into bubbles upon application. The magical moment when it fizzes into soft foam is what other masks cannot give you! 



The key ingredients are: 

1. O2 Bubble (Purifying
- Deeply penetrate into skin 
- Wash away impurities, debris and excess sebum 

2. Rice Powder (Brightening
- Moisture and Brighten skin

3. Red Soft Beads (Exfoliating
-Exfoliate dead skin surface


The Red Soft Beads that melt upon massage, releasing Vit E oil. 



How to apply: 
1. Apply a small amount onto face and gently massage. (with the spatula provided) 
2. Bubbles will foam, leave on for 5-10 minutes. 
3. Massage once more for deeper cleansing. 
4. Rinse with lukewarm water.
Sherlyn's Thoughts

I am a bit unsure how much is the appropriate amount. I applied a thin layer for the first time, expecting a lot of bubbles but it wasn't as much as I expected. The bubbles formed and disappear within 3 minutes or so? Hence it leaves me with a photo like this XD

The process of applying is fun! Since it forms bubbles, a lot of you all must be wondering whether it is drying the skin?
From my own experiences, I don't feel it as I proceed with my serum and moisturizers right after it. 

This is the result after 2nd usage in a week time. Can see my skin is glowing? 

The price for this 50g baby is RM 99

I handpicked my recent top 3 favorite cafes and I hope you will like it as well:) 

7Dish Cafe

Located at the front row of Sutera Mall, 7Dish is a new brunch cafe that serves high quality brunch and specialty coffee. 
I visited this cafe many times because of the specialty coffee and I have to say they serve decent coffee. There signatures are actually the brunch menu such as 7 big breakfast, salmon mash and avocado toast but being a dessert lover, I tried out their desserts instead. 
Pancake, waffles and hotcake. 
Which one is your favorite?

Brunch With Sunshine Kelly & Guardian Malaysia

I am always striking to be a better blogger and I am glad to have the opportunity to meet the Malaysia's top beauty and lifestyle blogger, Sunshine Kelly
Thank you Guardian Malaysia for making this brunch sharing sessions possible. 


To be honest, Kelly has always been my idol as she is a very professional, discipline and successful blogger and influencer. 
The sharing session took place in People & Places Cafe in Johor Bahru and Kelly is not stingy sharing her secrets and her experiences with us!


Her tips for flatlay and caption is really useful and beneficial for all of us there. Just look at how attentive everyone was.
There were also fun activities and prizes!
We were given a task to choose any products from the goodies bag prepared by Guardian, take a photo and post it on Instagram!
I was honored to win the prize!
Click here to check my entry!


Throughout the session, I learn that discipline is important as a blogger. Being a blogger is never easy and it important to be consistent in posting and updating new post.
Apart from that, she also shares her personal tips for photography and captions.

Food is always one of the highlights in meaningful event like this.








Earlier on I mentioned goodies bag prepared by Guardian right? You must be wondering what is inside the goodies bag? It is the KnockDown Prices items from 20th to 22th April 2018! 


I do hope you have already known about this Knockdown Prices Programme from Guardian? 
Don't worry if you haven't, it is not too late yet. 
The Knockdown Prices Programme will take place from Friday to Sunday every week till the end of the year featuring an average of 4 to 5 products with a price reduction from 10 to 70 percent! 
This is the bold decision from Guardian as they have been hearing feedback from the consumers about the the rising cost of living.
It is estimated that 260 items will be offered at lower prices throughout the year!

I know this is such a great news and now you have got more excuses to shop every weekend! 
Don't say I never share okay?
