The Story of Tanaka Natural 

Tanaka (also known as Thanakha) has a rich history in Myanmar. It is used in daily life, as well as in ceremonies where face paintings bear cultural significance of nobility and purity.

The Tree:

Tanaka is a perennial tree that grows in the lush forests of central Myanmar. It is slow growing and must be at least 35 years old to be mature enough to yield premium Tanaka. The cultural and practical practice of applying Tanaka on the skin is so deeply rooted in Myanmar that it stood the test of time through thousands of years. It is most widely used to cool and refresh the skin while protecting it from the sun the natural way.

Tanaka means both "cosmetic for beautifying the face" and "cleansing agent". It is recognized as a great aid to help withstand the heat of the sun and is thus an ideal cosmetic for those who have to work under direct sunlight. Women who work outdoor apply thick layers of Tanaka as a sunscreen to prevent sun-burn while its natural cooling properties help them tolerate the intense heat during the day.

The traditional production of Tanaka:

A simple procedure where the bark and roots are stripped, soaked in water, grounded and pulverized using a mortar and a flat stone into a fragrant paste, which has not changed for centuries. The light yellow paste with a mild fragrance is then applied to the face.

The Product

My Review

4X Intensive White Serum

Serum may seems thick at my first sight but it is actually easy to spread and absorb by my skin. Skin feels soft and cooling after that.

Double Whitening Day Cream SPF20

Consistency is thick for me, I somehow feel that it is not suitable for skin of my age(20) therefore I gave it to my mum who has a mature skin with dark spots concern. However this product with hyaluronic acid as their ingredient I can definitely feel that my skin is instantly moisturize.

Overall: Result cannot be determine by first try yet. Will update about it 1 week later about my mum skin condition after trying. However I love the packaging of the product as it brings out a pretty and feminine touch to the user.

Available at Watsons, Guardian NTUC Fairprice, Sasa, personal beauty stores and major super markets.

Scoot Cabin Crew Interview (UPDATED)

This post has been sitting in my draft for awhile and now it's finally time to publish it. Being a cabin crew aka air stewardess is a dream job for most of the girls and it may also attract eyes of envy, furthermore cabin crew get to enjoy in different country each time after work(that's other people mindset), however most people need to understand that the job is not as luxurious as it seems and cabin crew will also be sacrificing their family time for work. There was this day when I have finally graduated from ITE and found out that Scoot is recruiting cause I am constantly checking out their website hehe so I decided to send in my application. One reason why I choose Scoot is because it is a new airline and the people there all share a common characteristic which is "Scootitude" that makes them so fun-loving. Image credit: Hpility
