#LightTheWorld - 25 Days in 25 Ways

Hello there!I’m really happy to tell you that I'm participating in a Worldwide Day of Service Campaign from December 1st! This month long effort is a part of the #LIGHTtheWORLD campaign to bring about goodness during the holiday season and serve and live as Christ lived. We can celebrate his birth by following his life, his teachings and his example to make the world a brighter place. These 25 days give you the opportunity to serve anyone you want, anywhere you want.  

Watch this wonderful video below for more about this campaign - 


The way I personally do it is through prayer, compassion, kindness and helping others. Not very difficult. Is it? Service isn't restricted to religious activities but also consists of daily acts of kindness and being a good human being. Over the next 25 days of December, I would love it if you would join me and incorporate some simple acts of kindness to Light The World.

To help you understand what you can do over these 25 days, here's the calendar below to give you some ideas -  (download the printable PDF here


Join me and discover the joy of serving, helping and giving! Use the hashtag #LIGHTtheWORLD on social media when you share!

Cozy Ways To Spend Winter Nights

Winter has come and as the days get shorter and the nights get colder, I get closer to wanting to feel all warm and snugly. Some of you must be feeling blue with the idea of staying at home and stressing your mind on what to do. But it doesn't need to be an all-day drag when there are many fun activities at hand.

Feel the fire


 Few things are as pleasant as spending cold winter nights cozily close to a fireplace while sipping hot chocolate. A warm fire offers a comfortable and entertaining way to spend some time relaxing. Sit near your fireplace, and let the warmth of the fireplace kiss you.

Take a hot water shower 


Ever wondered what heaven on earth feels like? Yes, that’s right. A hot water shower or bath on cold night can make you feel like you’re in heaven. You can set up a spa like environment in your bathroom. You can personalize it by decorating your bathroom in a cozy, romantic and a little rustic style with candles and aromatic bath salts.

 Add entertainment to your life

I like to go out but sometimes its nice to stay at home and feel cozy, watch classic movies, favorite series, play games and specially when its winter and you’re at home you cannot miss out on paying online bingo. You can try the GameVillage online bingo site and check out the GameVillage Promotions to get the best out of it.

 Bake winter delicacies


 Variation in food is necessary, and when its winter, a daily routine meal is not enough. Make your winter days special by adding hot chocolate in desserts, try some baking experiments at home and share your delicious creations with your loved ones.

 Be a reader or a writer - you choose


Books take us to another world. A world of fiction, thrill and drama. Reading books on a winter nights is one best thing. And for a change, if you do not prefer reading books, then you can surely write one (or just give it a try).


Whether you are snuggling in front of the fire or piling on the extra blankets at night, be sure to keep warm and try out these cozy ideas.

Bangkok Shopping Guide

Whenever you hear Bangkok, the first thing that comes to every woman's mind is shopping! From glistening air-conditioned malls to busting street markets, Bangkok offers every shopaholic more bang for their baht. If you're planning to go to Thailand, make sure you reserve 2-3 days (and a spare suitcase) for all your shopping. It’s no secret that shopping is an integral contributor to Bangkok tourism. This posts lists malls that stock Thai apparel so I'm not including malls which have international brand stores like Forever 21 or Zara as those chains are present in all major countries and keep the same kind of stock everywhere. 

Important tourist attractions to make the most of your holiday:

Platinum Mall


Platinum Fashion Mall is the largest and most famous wholesale shopping destination in Bangkok. There are hundreds of stores selling women's fashion and super cheap prices. Being a wholesale mall, you get better deals if you buy larger quantities. However, note that there are no changing rooms here but they provide measuring you with tapes. You can also check with the shop owners if an exchange is possible in case what you buy doesn't fit you. In case you plan to visit Bangkok, you have to file in your application for Tourist Visa. With the visa you can stay in Bangkok for a span of 30 days or maximum up to 60 days.
  
Union Mall


Union Mall is similar to Platinum Mall, but is more spacious and well organized. It's a popular spot for hangout for Thai college girls because its designs are different compared to Platinum and it's less crowded. Items are slightly more expensive but their quality speaks for itself. There are many dressing rooms unlike Platinum and MBK so you can try out everything before you buy it.

Chatuchak Weekend Market

 

Chatuchak Weekend Market is also known as Jatujak or JJ Market, and it is the largest market in Thailand.  The market has more than 5000 stalls selling a wide array of products including clothing for men and women, accessories, footwear, household items, handicrafts and much more. It is hot here so do wear light clothing. If you are able to conquer the heat here, I’m sure you will be able to get a lot of stuff. The Chatuchak is a tourist attraction in itself, with over 200 000 people visiting each day! It is popular among both local Thais, foreigners living in Bangkok and tourists.

MBK Shopping Centre

MahBoonKrong or MBK, is one of the oldest and best known shopping malls in Bangkok. MBK Center is Bangkok's most legendary shopping mall, popular with both tourists and locals, and busy with shoppers every day. There are eight floors packed with 2,000 shops that sell everything from clothing, fashion accessories, handbags, leather products and luggage to furniture, mobile phones, electric appliances, cameras, stationery and DVDs. 

Siam Square

Popular with young, funky looking Thais, Siam Square is known for its youthful and trendy selection of fashion items. This is where you can find the coolest shops and indie boutiques that stock local designer labels as well as clothes, accessories, shoes, electronics and beauty products. The square consists of a number of small, indoor shopping centres and markets, separated by high streets and little boutique shops outdoors. Unlike Platinum Fashion Mall, the material and design of the apparels here are of higher quality and are usually available in limited pieces

Terminal 21


Terminal 21 is an upmarket shopping mall located next to Asok BTS Station. This mall has a unique airport theme where each floor of the mall is based on the theme of well-known cities like London, Rome, Paris, Tokyo and Istanbul. Both tourists and locals flock to this mall for its wide variety of unique stores & local designer apparel.
