Broken Candles: How To Save?

4.23.2017

saving my broken Voluspa candle

I googled and read how to save broken glass candles. All the articles basically said that you can melt the candle into a new container. So I decided alright, I'll try doing that with what I have in the kitchen. As you can see, the first picture shows my broken Voluspa candle in Prosecco Rose. This candle smells divine! Like a bed of roses in the spring. It was such a pity that the container broke during delivery so I'm going to save it by moving it into a new container. I used BBW's candle glass jar.

P.S: If you're looking on how to clean a used candle jar, I did it by boiling a pot of water and pouring it into the used candle jar to melt and remove the old wax and any other yucky residue. After an hour, I clean it out with dish washing soap. The remaining label glue and black stains were removed by makeup cleaning oil and wash again with soap.

here's what I did and I'll explain in steps 1 - 6
  1. Prepare a clean, dry candle container ready.
  2. I double-boil a pot of water with a heat resistant bowl over it. The broken candle is placed in the bowl. It melts slowly, so I helped break the wax into smaller more manageable parts to melt away. Be careful of glass shards, you can remove them at this point but be careful of the hot melted wax.
  3. I nudge the wicks off the broken candle bottom, pick it up and placed in the new container to dry and harden. I made sure it would be centralized so it wouldn't look funny later!
  4. I removed the old broken candle jar from the melted wax bowl with a cloth. Be careful not to get burnt. Discard away properly, please. I wrapped mine in newspaper and plastic for recycle bin.
  5. I used a thick cloth to hold the bowl and pour the melted wax into the new candle jar. Be extra careful this part if you're using the same bowl as me. It's slippery.
  6. I let the newly de-pot candle rest, it quickly hardens within an hour. By a day, it's as good as new.
Alright, that's how I did it :) the candle is burning well on my table and the whole process was kinda therapeutic! Just like baking cookies haha. Since glass shards and heat is in use, be sure to exercise safety and care while preparing this. I got away unharmed haha.

p.s: I used a glass bowl because I didn't want to damage or have a hard time cleaning my metal pot. The glass bowl worked like a charm and was easy to clean after.

#MYTravelAdventure – What’s your local travel story?

4.22.2017

Travel To Port Klang (Port Swettenham)
 source: guttedarcades

This is a story about my hometown, Port Klang where I would visit once a year. You see, everyone wants to go somewhere exciting; Penang, Malacca, Ipoh where food is abundance and culture is prevalent. But for me? I find beauty in the forgotten. #MYTravelAdventure – What’s your local travel story? This is my Malaysian local travel story. I'll be reminiscing this as a child and as an adult.

Port Klang is a town and the main gateway by sea into Malaysia. Colonially known as Port Swettenham, it is the largest port in the country. These sights were reminiscent of my childhood, both memorable & painful.

Port Klang is the top 13th container port in the world

KTM Port Klang
There are a few ways to reach here by public transport. The easiest way would be taking the KTM Komuter. The trip from KL Sentral (RM4.30) will take about 80 minutes. The train route passed Subang Jaya (RM 2.90), Shah Alam and Klang. The Port Klang railway station is located opposite the ferry terminal l

Port Klang used to be a thriving port town, bustling with town folks from all over thanks to it being the largest port in the country. Being the main gateway by sea into Malaysia, the Brittish colonized this town. AND because the journey from Klang by horse or buffalo wagons to the city was "too long and boring", Frank Swettenham the appointed British resident at Port Klang built a train linking from Port Klang to the city, Kuala Lumpur.

Known during colonial times as Port Swettenham. It was renamed to Port Klang in July 1972. I was born 9 years later. Ref.

If you just watch Beauty & The Beast, then the atmosphere during my childhood was exactly like the town Belle grew up in. People were all over, it was busy, it was awesome growing up in this town. I took my brother and sister on foot to discover the whole town in a day. We would stop by the Kedai Runcit to buy "yum yum" (snacks) and then fishes from the pet store. Of course, our fishes died the next day because we didn't understand a thing about keeping fishes as pets.

The local tavern where daddy always brings us to have chicken chop dinner had strange looking people from the port that I've never seen before. They were white and they had caps. Photographs of ships, strange people filled the walls of the Tavern. Now I realized, it was "ang mohs" from the ships.

D'Tavern, Restaurant & Pub, Port Klang

still old school setting

 hall of visitors, the past

HNS Westminter crew
I always make it a point to visit this tavern nearby my home to have their chicken chop. It's one of the oldest tavern around and was once beaming with sailors from all over the world. I'm amazed it's still surviving despite the harsh changes made to this small town.

my home town Port Klang

At the age of 10 & being the eldest, I brought my 5-year-old bro & 2-year-old sister to tour around Port Klang like free-spirited doves. Now, it's better to exercise caution when you walk around this town.

The oldest hotel in Port Klang town

During its heyday, it's one of the nice hotels for seafarers and visitors from the port but to date, it's not exactly a place to crash for the night anymore. This hotel and building was built by my grandfather. The hotel is probably the only hotel in Port Klang town now.

Pasar Pelabuhan Kelang


The oldest wet market in Port Klang, fishermans comes here to sell their catch

The wet market in Port Klang is probably one of the oldest structure here and still withstood the test of time. This is still a bustling place in the early morning. Just minutes away from my home, my grandmother always sent me here to buy catfish in the morning to feed our 50 cats (we like to rescue animals)

Grandmother handed to the 10 year-old me RM5 every morning to go to the fish market to buy a bag of "cat fish". It's not really catfish, it was just that sardine looking fish to feed the 50 cats and kittens we rescued back at home. My grandmother and I love cats. We have a colony of "atap cats" who only live up the house roofs. We have garden cats, house cats, and back-alley cats. Somehow they all started their own families and we have a huge cat zoo.

We also have 15 dogs and puppies. All this in a single storey house in Port Klang.

the colonials shops that was my "shopping mall" at 10 years old

 abandoned beauty

traveling to the past

how grandma used to shop

Death by Expressway. The shophouses that used to be alive is where I spent most of my childhood rummaging through toys, books, snacks every Sunday morning split between my sibblings. Dad plays mahjong nearby with friends at coffeeshop, we'll go there spy at him through the window & extort for money. Yes I use the word extortion, we won't leave him alone unless he pays protection money

Port Klang was awesome until the new North-South Express Highway started construction. The town I loved went through a slow death. Nobody saw it coming. We didn't even have a protest against this. The express highway was big and tall. My favorite Kedai Runcit stores were just a few feet away from it. The whole stretch of colonial stores suffered from this change.

People started moving out and laborers from neighboring countries started making this their new home. From the bright, bustling town I grew up in, my town has turned into a cowboy town, unfamiliar, dark and unsafe. Shops I grew up visiting, closed down. The fish market, is it still there? The old cinema, abandoned and probably haunted.

my grandma's hardware store in Port Klang

While I was walking around Port Klang this morning, I passed by my grandma's hardware store, still there after so many years. It's the same row as the Great Wall mall (many might not remember Great Wall anymore, used to be the only shopping place for us back in the golden days). Also beside this shop, is where the famous tong shui stall is located at the main road of Port Klang town.

the hawker square where I used to buy tong yuen for auntie

The famous tong yuen stall in Port Klang, operated over 25 years by father & daughter team. It's still here with a bowl of tong yuen from RM1.  Featured on: The Star - February 2009. Roadside stall next to Econjaya (now closed but the signboard is still there)Jalan Raja Muda Musa, Port Klang Opening hours: 8pm - 11:30pm (Closed on Sundays)

Walking around Port Klang after so many years. It was still beautiful. It has potential. It was still awesome to me. It could be alive again, there's so much history and the Tavern is still standing tall serving chicken chop. If only Mr.Seksan of the Sekeping Projects, could come here and turn my once awesome town into more awesome place.

How Malaysian travel changed me? Well, Malaysia has many wonderful awesome places to visit, and it should not be limited to places of popularity, it could also be a place you find interesting like Port Klang. To appreciate what we have and the forgotten. An adventure of your local beauty of the past. A diamond in the rough, right Traveloka?

Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair

4.17.2017


your anti-aging life gold goals

There's always the one anti-fail anti-aging product in the world that everyone is familiar with. Especially when one is brown and affectionately called the "little brown bottle" by fans. When you reach that stage in life that anti-aging starts to resonate, you'll know the Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair is one of the highly recommended product to try. It's not cheap either, but mind you which anti-aging beauty product is? The ingredients that call to reverse years off your face, wouldn't be sold for the price of McDonald's. When should one start using anti-aging skincare products? They say as early as 25 but well I started in my late 20's and since pass 35, it has become an even more important to use anti-aging products.

Day 2 AoNang Krabi Thailand

Good Morning Krabi!

The next morning I woke up after the most comfortable night's sleep in a long time (my bed mattress at home is hard not very comfy and hurts my back sometimes) Peace Laguna's comfy spacious Queen size bed gets a big thumbs up from me - wish I could take it back home with me! As we had booked one of the private cottages, the facilities include an outside rainforest shower, personal DeLonghi coffee maker machine with a variety of different capsules replenished every day on request, and 2 personal sun loungers to relax and get your tan on with a view of the lagoon.

A Cut Above's Brazilian Keratin Treatment Review

4.10.2017

caught by the bad hair police *cries*
(I've neglected my hair for far too long)

Many years ago, I fell in love with one hair treatment that changed my mindset about paying for hair treatments in salons. No longer do I pay a one-time hair treatment that costs RM100 more or less when I'm reminded how dry or badly damaged my hair is during shampoo visits. It's all thanks to A Cut Above's Brazillian Keratin Treatment. That one time left me with a good impression for many years to come. Even up till now, whenever I think of hair treatment, I think BKT (short for Brazillian Keratin Treatment). I've tried many types of hair treatment since hitting puberty. My hair just wouldn't be tamed. I wished many times I was born with silky, straight hair instead of coarse, frizzy, dry hair which of course didn't go well with keeping up with the trends.

Happy Birthday Butterfly Project

4.09.2017

Happy Birthday Butterfly Project

Typing out my thoughts as I listen to Coffee Table Jazz on my speakers and the BBW candle in Mahogany Teakwood burning on my table. I am preparing to wrap up the Butterfly Project birthday party this month, and there are tonnes to do with the rebranding of the community. The community is turning four years old this month, and so much has happened since. From bittersweet memories to new beginnings for our community, I do look forward to seeing how we as bloggers can help brands out there.

Call me old fashion, I still believe blogging is a way to help people, especially for our local mermaids out there starting their own brand and company. As usual, I don't share much of how the community started, and people often think it was a piece of cake. It is not.

Sweat, blood and tears go into managing a community without resources or funding. It's a club essentially for like minded people to socialised, network and participates in activities that would benefit them in terms of growth, credibility, content and knowledge gained from learning.

And yes, the big guy up there. Thank you for looking after this community and for making it was it is today. We wouldn't have survived 4 years just breathing the air. I have in mind to start writing a book on how The Butterfly Project came about. Would anyone be interested to read? hmm.

My final thoughts are, I hope we see new faces this year. Faces who would change the future of the next blogosphere.

P.S: We have not one but two birthday parties this April/May. The first with Jerlynn'L on 29th April, 2017. I'll be announcing the details soon on our Butterfly Project FB Fan page for sign ups.

Water Sleeping Mask Lavender RM120/70ml

(Limited Edition)


When I found out the news of my favourite sleeping mask having more babies I was so dam happy I couldn't wait to share this news on my blog! It's only available in May to June 2017 at Laneige counters near you. One of the reasons the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask made it to my must-buy beauty list is because it works so well on me, I'm a believer already! Before I go to sleep, I'll put on the watery gel like mask and wake up in the morning all fresh, moisturised, brighten and dewy. Now that they're coming out with a limited edition sleeping mask in LAVENDER it just makes sense? Lavender is widely used for aromatherapy to relax and calm down your spirit. I can't wait to get a whiff of how this smells like. May please come quick!

Sulwhasoo Essential Set Unboxing Review

3.28.2017


baby, I love how you shine

You know what's horrifying? When you're clearing your cupboards and you found this super expensive skincare set you bought years ago stashed away that's going to expire soon. That's my story *sob sob*. Arghh sometimes I really want to kill myself for buying and buying and then never using the things I "invested" in. SO without further a due, I'm going to start using my Sulwhasoo Essential Set today before it becomes one with the bin. My camera dieded (died) on me so I can't take nice photographs until I send it to Canon Service Centre for checks. I'm also using all my mental power to not go to Sony Centre to buy that RX-100 v camera that costs over RM4k. Why would I need another expensive camera right? (wait.... maybe I do). I should just buy iPhone 7 plus right? No.. I should buy 27" iMac, my all time dream computer. Screen so big, you can swim in it. Kidding. P.S I'm using my iPhone6S to take pics now.

Veet Launches Veet Sensitive Touch (Electric Trimmer)

3.25.2017

I need this!!! #nomorerazors

Last month, Baby G went to an event for me, a girly event *lol*. He had no qualms about that. In fact any event with good food, he wouldn't mind sacrificing his manhood for it (oops). Since I'm working, I couldn't take time off to attend events so Baby G has been so supportive to go for me. I love him to bits because of this. When I asked if he could attend Veet's latest event, he asked if this was the hair removal brand? (he knows his thing haha). I said they're launching a hair removal gadget called the Veet Sensitive Touch.

The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort Review

3.20.2017

The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort, Redang Island, Malaysia

A few weeks ago I was invited by the Berjaya group to attend a Media FAM trip to their 5-star luxury Taaras Spa & Beach Resort. After doing some research online, I immediately accepted the invite when I saw the breathtaking photos, glowing reviews and top of the range facilities on offer on their website. Needless to say, I became very excited when I read the following introduction -
"Tucked away and hidden from the outside world on a small island found just off the unspoilt East Coast of tropical Malaysia. Considered to be one of the most beautiful island locations in the South China Sea, the isle of Redang is home to our natural, yet stylish resort found on of the most spectacular bays surrounded by one of the bluest oceans on the earth."
So inviting and grabs your attention you can't wait just wanna go already! Right? Well, I got even more excited when I read the itinerary for the trip. 4D3N in a 5* luxury resort, all meals provided for including barbecue dinner by the beach and a few fun packed activities to enjoy such as diving and snorkelling. Sounds like the perfect vacation with a combination of relaxation and adventure, don't you think?

Do Not Buy Canon 70D Malaysia

3.19.2017


Canon 70D Error 80

After a year of owning the Canon 70D which is the most expensive camera that I've ever bought and to which I have taken good care of it as oppose to my Canon 550D, I'm shocked to see it suddenly passed out one day with the error 80 alert. Now I've been a Canon camera customer for so long, I trust their products and I've only bought Canon cameras so far. My 550D which was with me through thick and thin is now 5 years old and has never failed me before.

It was a shock that my Canon 70D retail over RM4K in the market, hardly use suddenly powers out with the error 80. After a day or two, it would be okay back again but when you need the camera for an all important travel gig, it suddenly passes out again with the error. Not acceptable.

I went googling for answers and came about European and Brazil Canon 70D users who were not happy at all with this error. They even made a petition online to voice out this was a factory fault concerning the video usage linked to motherboard fault that would happen. Here's what they say below from an online petition which I also signed but unfortunately, I'm from Malaysia and consumer rights here is almost zero.

Online Petition On Canon 70D Error 80
Canon should issue a statement, recognizing that there is an error in the design of the 70D, which produces that with the use (apparently when the temperature of the camera increases), error 80 appears on the Canon EOS 70D and die.

There are thousands of affected users, who have their camera broken, by a bad Canon design.
In Canon Brazil have recognized that it is a factory failure and are arranging cameras free of charge to those who have said mistake, and returning the money to the people who have paid the repair (400 €).
For now the support of Canon says that are isolated cases (lie, are hundreds/thousands of models that have been affected by this error).
I have talked to several repair services, and comment that when they repair the camera they put a motherboard "upgraded", so it is evident that the old plates had some problem.
We want Canon Europe to study the issue, and offer us a solution, just like in brazil they have offered. There is a low-end camera (Ni cockroach) for it to spoil the year, 2 years, 20,000 shots, with a good use. This is clearly a factory failure.

Groups to talk about problem:


P.S: I really hate dealing with all these issues... but I can't help sharing. I have to use my precious leave to take my camera to Canon Malaysia to check/fix the error 80. I message Canon Malaysia FB about this issue and even tell them to recall the 70Ds. I think it would fall on deaf ears anyway. I'm thinking to buy the Sony RX100 iv compact camera now as reviews says it's the best travel camera.

MYSALE IS RUBBISH

3.18.2017

After shopping on mysale.my for a few times and facing issues after issues with their super sucks safety of fragile items in which their cs is (*&^* doesn't use their brains to think at all. I mean hello? Why are  some cs so brainless? Don't tell me you're paid low so your brain also functions on low capacity? or you only relying on templates to work? My years of dealing with shitty Malaysian customer service just makes me expect the same kinda bullshit that would happen.

E.g: I bought a bunch of glass candles and they broke. Their cs offer me 20% refund. WTF? My goods are not usable anymore and in fact it's now dangerous to use it! 20%? YOU KIDDING ME? USE YOUR BRAINS. I EVEN EMAILED IN THE PICTURES TO SHOW STILL CAN'T DO BROKEN GLASS MATHS?

Sorry for the outrage, I can't take no more shit service atm. Especially with the shitty YTL Hotels Membership saga which has now turned into comedic levels. It's like watching a never ending black and white old movie on rerun with no happy ending.

Going back to mysale.my, I did some googling and reading and they fall under ozsale. So it sees they're an Australian company who's been ripping people off with "inaccurate" descriptions of sale and abusing consumer rights. At least in Australia, the consumer rights and watchdogs are powerful because last year ozsale was fined over AUD$10,000 for misleading customers. Read all about it here. They've also been fine over AUD$500,000 for selling flammable children's clothingunsafe children's clothing. Click here to read the drama.

There's also tons of negative reviews from Australian consumers complaining about buying things that's "not as it seems" from ozsale which is also mysale. A large number of complaints on they selling fake goods, goods not sold as advertised, misleading goods and so on. Particularly on bedsheets and pillows, as ozsale/mysale would pretty up the description and title, vomiting words such as hotel-luxury, soft comfort, downlike, bla bla... but when your goods arrive it's made in China and 100% polyester.

I didn't believe it until I paid RM500 for 4 "hotel luxury soft" pillows and a duvet (blanket). The packaging was like.... uh..... just a plastic wrap over the goods. I could see the tag sticking out on the pillows and duvet (apparently it's a law not to remove these tags, only customers can remove) that says 100% polyester and made in China.

I rest my case.

Kiehl's Vitality Getaway & Review

3.11.2017

Mr.Bones says hello in Cameron Highlands!

A few weeks ago, I was lucky to be exclusively invited to go on a road trip to Cameron Highlands for 2D1N on a vitality getaway by Kiehl's, in conjunction with the launch of their new #Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream. I had never visited before so when I was offered the opportunity I was delighted to accept it as all expenses trips are rare for me!

Voluspa Candle Haul

3.06.2017

Voluspa my love, come to me quick!

I've splurged on candles again. This time on Voluspa because there's a sale going on here (if you click my link, register as a new member and make your first purchase, I'll get RM30 muahhaha). Okay wait let's be serious. I'm addicted to this site now but only for really cool stuffs like candles. I was deciding for a week whether to buy or not but decided to take the plunge because I needed to buy something as a gift for a good friend's house warming gift. It would make a really nice house deco piece too and the scent is Chestnut Vetiver which is a fragrance with notes of rich roasted chestnuts fired and combined with earthy vetiver, oakmoss and amber.

The Relationship Quiz by Prudential Relationship Index

3.03.2017

let's talk about relationships

This June would be the mark of our 2nd year together, as a couple, partners in crime and companions in life. He says I'm his number 1 girl in his life (after his mom) while I say, he's the love of my life. Coming from different ethnicity background, somehow we complete each other like two pieces of jigsaw puzzle. It was fate that brought us together, a love story that you wouldn't believe me if I told you. A lonely traveler who lost his wallet at the airport and the lonely single gal fresh out from an unhappy relationship. Friends would ask why him? And here's my answer:

because he:
  1. loves me for who I am
  2. makes me laugh (especially important when you're having a bad day)
  3. is honest with me (when interrogated)
  4. respects me as an individual
  5. easy to get along
a far cry from the imaginary bf list I wrote back in school:
  1. rich
  2. handsome
  3. big house
  4. big car
  5. 10 dogs and 20 cats
See? Hahaha (kidding). Well, life is no fairy tales am I right? The girl who finishes school and the girl who has eaten her fair share of salt in life are two different people now. The salt of life, made me realized how important are the little things in a relationship - a hug, a kiss, a smile. I was raised by my mom and dad, both divorced when I was young. I would say, I didn't have the luxury of seeing my parents holding hands, kissing each other (cheeks!) or join them as "lamp post" on romantic travels. I did have that luxury watching American movies (haha).

same same but different, so what?

Then, I met the man who made me smile. He's not Malaysian but we still hit it off. Can I say it's not easy finding that someone whom you can be comfortable with? I always thought it would be harder to get along with an "Ang moh" because of our cultural and background differences. That went out the window the first day we talked and shared about our lives. We started living together as a couple, and soon I learned what it means to be loved. He never fails to give me a kiss a day, a hug when I come back from work and cuddles whenever he feels like it. Where I am now, I am truly happy and if I can say it, I might have found my soul mate. We were meant for each other! (right?).

when you were younger, I bet you took a lot of quizzes!

it was as if they could predict the future

 okay maybe not this last quiz

Just the other day on his birthday trip to Tanjong Jara Resort, Terengganu, I decided to take The Relationship Quiz to see if their answers were "He's The One" or "Run For Your Life". Interestingly, it wasn't that kind of quiz. The kind that I was accustomed to from reading female magazines. You know the arrow kind or the ones with handsome guys holding hearts on the quiz. The answers didn't lead to Gerard Butler or Takashi Kaneshiro (yes I'm that old).

take the quiz here to find out what relationship type you're in!

It was more serious, no thanks to Nicholas who introduced me to it. It was a relationship quiz with proper surveys done by Prudential, fully loaded with a relationship index to match. Statistics were shown too with comparisons, highlights, explanations on what makes a relationship important. I took a glance over and it's a whopping 44-page report. From being in a relationship to having children, parents, friends and so on. There's something to read and understand how it all affects our lives.

Scroll down to the bottom of this post if you're interested to find out where to download it.


honeymooners, we are *giggles*

So jeng jeng jeng, guess what my relationship quiz says? I'm surprised too because it says we're still in the HONEYMOON stage! I think that just explains the countless of "honeymoon" trips we've taken as a couple because we both love to travel, eat and just shower each other with cuddles silly. But what happens after the honeymoon stage is over? Things become serious and the love goggles come off. So what makes and breaks a relationship now?

the many stages in a relationship

Prudential did a pretty good job gathering information in their report with the question "How can we make our relationship stronger in Malaysia?" in their 2016 Prudential Relationship Index (PRI) to understand the state of personal relationships in Malaysia and throughout Asia. These include relationships with partners, children, parents, friends and relatives. A score of 100 on the PRI means that a person’s primary relationship delivers 100% of what they want from that relationship.


here's the video for a quick intro to what the
Prudential Relationship Index 2016 is all about

Malaysia is ranked 5 in the Prudential Relationship Index
(Vietnam the highest, China is the lowest)

the survey done with 10 countries

Getting down to what makes relationship important, Prudential set out on a mission in a region-wide survey with 5,000 conversations going on in ten countries - Malaysia, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam. The 2016 Prudential Relationship Index is the result of our region-wide research.

The Index measures, via a numerical score, how satisfied people are with their primary relationships and suggests what can be done to improve them. Primary relationships include partners, children, family, and friends. Amazing insights into what makes relationships work and how best to protect them is shared all on www.prudentialrelationshipindex.com

in life, it all comes down to the people who matters to us the most
- Prudential Relationship Index

the four pillars of a relationship

Malaysia did not too bad, coming in 5th with the score of 71/100. It means that, on average, the primary relationships Malaysians fulfill 71 percent of their relationship needs in terms of people’s satisfaction with their personal relationships. Here are some interesting facts from the report that I'd like to show you! Which also comes back to my question of what makes or breaks a relationship after the "romance/honeymoon" period? 

What are some things we may not know about Malaysians?
  • Couples in Malaysia frequently express their love for each other.
  • Both parents and children in Malaysia look out for one another financially.
  • Malaysians are largely positive about technology, but not addicted to it.
What are the keys to relationship success in Malaysia?
  • Be easy to get along with
  • Respect each other’s individuality
  • Be honest
  • Stand up for one another
  • Have strengths that complement each other
So I hope this post helps you identify where you are right now in your relationship by taking the Relationship Quiz and how to identify the key elements to a successful relationship after all the jazz is gone. To read the full report, download it from here.
