About Myself


Hi! My name is Mel and this is my blog. I am a 50 something wife and mother to four grown up kids. I am currently working as a Cost Accountant in a manufacturing industry. Read on to learn more about me and why this blog is a testament that midlife is beautiful.

Midlife is the age between 45 to 65 years of age, the stage between early adulthood and old age. Does it mean that if we fall between these age  we are “old” or does the adage “age is just a number” is indeed a fact? We can’t stop the years rolling by but as many other women , I would like to grow old gracefully. By gracefully, I mean to be able to continue to work, enjoy life by being able to travel on short vacations, watch movies, dine, enjoy good food with my family. I want to take care of myself, my health, how I look, the way I dress.

This blog is about inspiring & empowering women in the midlife bracket, seeing that there are few blogs catering to these demographics, I mustered enough courage to put up a blog where midlife women can connect and relate with each other as they go through their midlife phase.

Middle life is Beautiful is an avenue for midlife women to bond over their midlife experiences in their family, relationships, health, beauty, fashion & travels.

From here on, I would be sharing posts about midlife journey, my travels, about health, beauty & fashion for women the same boat as I am but maybe the younger sets can enjoy reading them as well.

I hope you continue to follow me as I embark on my midlife journey.

Welcome to my blog!

Singapore:Day 2 Kampong Glam, Sentosa, Universal Studios Singapore

I was supposed to start the 2nd part of my Singapore trip last night but because of a lot of work at the office (making up for the days I was away from work), I was so tired when I arrived home. I'm missing Singapore already so I'd better start my blog right now!


Anyway, day 2 started earlier today. While Charmi was still sleeping, I sneaked out of bed and took a bath. The bathrooms at Meadows Hostel where we stayed were very clean but you have to bring along your own toiletries because they are not provided. No need to bring towels, they will provide it, and before I forget when we checked in, the receptionist gave us 2 free adapters. By the way, I booked our hostel via Booking.com. No credit card  or prepayment was required, I paid in cash at the hostel.
Before taking a bath, I took my breakfast and I have the pantry by myself. The pantry has an overview of the sky rise buildings in Singapore and I was enjoying the sprinkling of rain. It was a beautiful morning, no hurries,…

How can Midlife Women Live Longer?

How long do you want to live? 80, 90, 100? But the real question is," how can we live longer?". To live longer entails keeping our bodies in good health, in good shape, nurturing our spiritual growth, and caring for our family. According to data, a woman turning 65 today can expect to live on average until 86.6 years of age. I stumbled upon in internet a life expectancy calculator, this calculator computes the additional life expectancy of a person. This is how it works: I input my date of birth then it calculated that I will have an additional life expectancy of 33.6 years! Wow!

The truth is there are several factors that contributes to increase or decrease in life expectancy. These are:

1.  Current health- are you in good health? suffering from an ailment?
2.  Lifestyle - are you a smoker? drinks excessively? does not exercise? parties too much?
3.  Family history - is there a member of your family who has cancer, diabetes, hypertension?

Smoking, drinking too much alcohol, …

Anyong haseyo (pronounced ahn-yo-ha-say-yoh)! Korean beauty is the mania these days, everyone is all agog with the perfectly, glowing, white skin of the oppas and unnies. While browsing over the internet, I came across this product Seoul White Korea, I looked it up and learned it is sold at Watsons. After enjoying the sweltering heat of summer in the beaches, my natural morena skin became darker and duller. I'm not after achieving a fair complexion like the Koreans, what I want is to bring back the color of my skin to its natural glory in the shortest time. So, my midlife women- sisters, let us try these beauty products and see if we can incorporate it in our daily skin care routine.


I visited a Watsons store near our house and went directly to the skin care racks but no Seoul White Korea in sight, so I walked over at the other side of the store and there I saw my Seoul White Korea! There was Seoul White Korea Soap and Seoul White Korea cream in tube and sachet. I took down the ba…
