Such A Hidden Gem To Look! These Are 5 Coolest Abandoned Places Worldwide

Published

on

Though apocalyptic, there’s something beautiful about abandoned places. The clocks have stopped ticking and there’s not a soul in sight, but the shell of what used to be remains. There is something both eerie and striking about abandoned places. Abandoned places show us what happens without consistent human upkeep and perhaps what could even happen to the places we love and frequent.

These spots are haunting, and there is a mysterious beauty in neglect. From discarded hotels to ghost towns and flooded villages, these are actually 5 abandoned places in the world that are so cool to look and enjoy, perfect for intrepid travelers with a macabre sense of adventure.

1) Maunsell Army Sea Forts in England

These forts on stilt off England’s east coast were originally World War II gun towers to defend against German aircraft. Now rusted out and decaying, they were decommissioned in the 1950s and have not been used since. They hark back to some of the darkest days of the war, and what is left of them can still be viewed today from passing boats.

2) Star Wars Sets in Tozeur Desert, Tunisia

The majority of filming for the planet of Tatooine took place in Tunisia, and several sets were abandoned deep in the Sahara Desert after production, including Luke Skywalker’s iconic childhood home from Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope. Now, some of the sets are deteriorating and becoming buried beneath the sand.

3) Gunkanjima Island in Nagasaki, Japan

Less than one square kilometer of rock sits on top of a massive, 1950s undersea coal mine. The miners needed a place to live, so an entire city arose on the tiny island. Nearly 6,000 people lived there, the world’s highest population density. But when the coal ran out, the micro-city was deserted.

4) City Hall Station in New York

This beautiful subway station was in use until 1945, but it closed down because the curve of the platform was too sharp for newer, longer trains. Decorated with stained glass skylights, colorful tile and brickwork and chandeliers, this work of art is sadly no longer accessible to commuters and passersby, but the New York Transit Museum does offer tours to this underground treasure box.

5) Wanli UFO Village in Taiwan

These pod-shaped rooms, originally designed as ski chalets, were once destined to be part of a cheerful beachside vacation resort. However, after financial struggles, the project made of lightweight fiberglass Futuro houses was abandoned. Today, rather than a relaxing vacation destination, the combination of whimsical architecture, pastel coloring and decades of decay is unsettling.

Shop Review: Famous For Its Crispy Fried Chicken, The ‘Loh Burger Putrajaya’

Published

on

There are actually getting more and more creative and also delicious recipes that have been created here in our beloved country, Malaysia, and Putrajaya will also definitely not going to miss the trend. Recently, a particular shop in Putrajaya called ‘Loh Burger Putrajaya’ has really caught my attention and also my preferable taste palate.

‘Loh Burger Putrajaya’ has open their own shop in Presint 9, Putrajaya and it looks really amazing and eye-catchy. This is because their shop is painted orange in color and also has a lot of fascinating painting of burgers on their wall. Even the shop itself could have attracted so many customers. The other major thing that got me attracted to the shop would be their own crispy fried chicken that is incorporated in many dishes that their shop is selling.

According to the Facebook post that stated, “Alhamdulillah. With the blessings, prayers, and support from family, friends, and customers who have been like family to us all this time, Loh Burger Putrajaya has now moved a little forward in the business. With the effort and support from all, Loh Burger Putrajaya has operated in a new place, namely in Putra Harmoni Precinct 9, Putrajaya. Customers can walk in or even order online like always. Thank you once again for the support”.

I have tasted two recipes from this shop and there are Nasi Lemak Pandan Ayam Crispy and Burger Ayam Crispy.

Their Nasi Lemak really attracts me to buy it. The first reason is that it is green in color. For someone who loves the green color, I would definitely want to try it. The taste of the Nasi Lemak is so amazing because it is one of a kind. The taste blends really well with the sambal and I love every bite of it. The second reason is none other than because of the crispy fried chicken. You can rarely see Nasi Lemak that comes with boneless crispy fried chicken. Their innovation of using crispy fried chicken rather than another type of fried chicken really makes theirs in the next level.

The second thing that I really obsessed with this shop would be their Burger Ayam Cripsy. First of all, their burger is huge and you can definitely feel full just by eating this. If you have not eaten anything throughout the day, this shop’s very owns Burger Ayam Crispy could help you with that. Every time I buy their burger, it would always come hot because the crispy fried chicken is fried when you order it. That is why you can really enjoy the crunchiness of the crispy fried chicken in the burger when you bought it. Other than the crispy fried chicken, the sauce that they are using also tastes really delicious. It just completed the taste of the Burger Ayam Crispy with vegetables and chicken.

Shop Review: Get The Right Skincare Products With ‘The Soaphaus’!

Published

on

It’s difficult to love your skin when it’s constantly acting up. Skin problems, whether they’re dry, itchy areas or infrequent pimples, aren’t simply inconvenient to deal with; they may also make you feel self-conscious. I know being the way you are is just right, but sometimes taking care of ourselves is important too. That’s where skincare comes to play. And it’s not just for women, even men needs one too!

There are just tonnes of skincare products. Finding the best skin care products is difficult, as anybody who has ever browsed the aisles of a beauty store or even a drugstore will attest. And choosing is the toughest process ever. We all want products that are natural and safe but the truth is, lots of beauty products contain harmful chemicals that will give instant results but might leave a long-lasting effect later on. Not only that, most products are way too expensive.

If you’re a newbie to skincare or someone who’s confused about what products to use and want something that is safe yet affordable, you are on the right page.

Picture: The Soaphaus

Welcome to The Soaphaus. The Soaphaus founders were always intrigued about how a product was manufactured and what ingredients were used in it! They were ready to design items that are suitable for Asian skin after conducting extensive study and reading.

One of the many reasons they established this skincare company is that they wanted to produce products that do not bleach or whiten the skin. It is so often people have this stereotype that fair is beautiful but here at The Soaphaus, they believe that every skin tone is beautiful as it is.

Another reason that drives this company is the pricing factor. The creators think that everyone should be able to afford a good skincare routine. They have clients ranging in age from teenagers to the elderly who purchase skincare to ensure that their skin improves with each use! Some of our items are also suitable for children.

It is safe to say that almost all their products are vegan– by almost meaning only the Goat Milk Soap and Honey and Oat Scrub aren’t. Also, they never test their products on animal. So yay to free animal cruelty!

The Soaphaus offers are a wide range of products from cleansers to body care that is sure to bring the best version of yourself. They also have certain products that treat oily skin and acne skin. Here are some of them.

Cleanser

The Soaphaus has four types of bar cleansers:

  1. Natural Turmeric Soap
  2. Goats Milk and Orange Soap
  3. Natural Clay Soap
  4. Natural Rosemary Charcoal Soap

My favourite one would be the Goats Milk and Orange Soap. Suitable for damaged and dry skin, goats milk and orange soap is prepared from pure goats milk and orange oils. It aids in moisturizing and soothing damaged parts of the skin. It contains vitamin E oils, which assist to reduce wrinkles and slow down the ageing process. Our soap contains vitamins D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E, which are absorbed straight into the skin. This medication also aids in the treatment of eczema and the evening of skin tone. A soap that not only removes grime but also replenishes the skin’s hydration!

Toner

Toner helps to close pores and tighten the cell gaps after cleansing. So far, the Orange Antioxidant Face Toner is one of the best I’ve used so far. This great face toner has radiance-boosting elements as well as a variety of other nutrients that your skin requires to look vibrant. When you first start using it, you will notice a change in how smooth and hydrated your skin feels, as well as how radiant it seems. It also contains orange oil, which has antimicrobial effects. Witch hazel extract can help treat scars and prevent acne, and rosehip oil can aid with scarring and repairing dry skin. For a cooling effect, you can leave it refrigerated before using it.

Moisturizer

Moisturizing your face is important because it keeps your skin moist. The Soaphaus offers two types of moisturizer which are Lily Noir and Bergamot. Bergamot is a mild moisturiser, which contains aloe vera extracts and Bergamot oil, which can do wonders for your skin. If you’ve always coveted glowing skin, this face serum is the way to go. It will not only clear up your acne, but it will also give your skin a healthy glow by absorbing into your skin faster than most face serums. If you like natural skincare, you may already be aware that this serum may help you get rid of acne, acne spots, and other scars while also hydrating your skin and giving it a healthy glow. So, stop worrying about your oily skin and acne problems and start using Bergamot Face Serum to have a clear, healthy complexion.

Facial Oils

Not one, not two but six different types of oils. Each has its own benefits and makes your skincare a little extra. Here’s what The Soaphaus offer:

– Cold-Pressed Rosehip Oil

– Cold- Pressed Watermelon Seed Oil

– Fractionated Coconut Oil

– Japanese Camellia Oil

– Soaphaus Luxury Facial Oil

– Golden Castor Oil

The trending oils would be Watermelon Seed Oil, Cold-Pressed Rosehip Oil and Golden Castor Oil

Facial Mask and Exfoliators

Cleansing, toner and moisturizing your skin is not the only way to care for your skin. By using face masks and exfoliants, you remove the dirt or dead skin from your face. The Soaphaus has five types of face masks but my favourite one would be the Turmerice Face Mask. Turmeric is well known for its medicinal values for ages. This turmeric mask helps to clear clogged pores, excess sebum, and uneven skin texture. It also aids in the reduction of drabness. It also aids healthy cell renewal in the skin. Also, the mask assists in the reduction of discolouration, pigmentation, and sun damage. The impacts of environmental factors, pollution, and UV stress are also reduced with this mask. Turmeric can also be used instead of acid-based Glycols or AHA.

Picture: The Soaphaus

For exfoliating the skin, the best choice would be Honey and Milky Oat Scrub. This nourishing oat scrub is like a nutritious food for your skin. While enjoying the soothing benefits of real honey, colloidal oats, and shea butter, polish away dead skin cells, makeup, and extra pollutants. With shea butter, colloidal oats, and natural honey, this scrub can help you nourish your skin. This scrub incorporates oats in addition to honey as its major ingredient. Oats are high in saponins, which have anti-ageing qualities and can assist with acne, pimples, and other skin problems. Because oats are soft on the skin, they won’t irritate or cause skin hypersensitivity when you use this scrub.

See, turns out choosing the right skin product is not so hard and expensive after all! If you would like to know in detail which product suits you the best, you can get a free skincare consultation from them. To purchase their products, you can buy them from Instagram, their website or Whatsapp. Also, you can save more time because they ship the products directly to the convenience of your home!
