New Year Resolutions begins with Trulife


With the New Year drawing closer, restoring a healthy balanced lifestyle and maintaining youthful skin from an inside-out approach is my 2016 resolution.

The past couple of years, has been a roller coaster ride physically and mentally. In this new year, I'd like to focus on making small little changes to restore health and balance into my system. I once heard a TED talk saying that to make a successful permanent improvement,
"MAKE SMALL CHANGES FOR A BIG CHANGE"

Small changes in habits are way easier to follow through than having a long resolution list.
Aside from moderating my eating habits and exercise regimes, I've started to incorporate 2 simple step/supplement into my daily life.

TruLife Herbal Detox System
Collagen Cell Renew or Bird's Nest Drink before bedtime.

Easy to follow, one bottle in morning before breakfast,
one bottle before bedtime.

TruLife Herbal Detox System
This mild herbal detox drink aids digestion and gently cleanses the colon. If you're thinking,
Another diarrhoea kind of colon cleansing???
The kind you have to camp in the toilet all day!!!
NOPE.
Tried and tested this drink past couple of days and no diarrhoea of sorts.
The "weeding out" process is gentle and allows you to continue your daily activities as per normal.
TruLife Herbal Detox drink ($45.95 for box of 10) is a special formula originating from a Traditional Chinese Medicine remedy. IT contains 6 natural active ingredients for fast detoxification with NO  side effects, including Hawthorn fruit that speeds up digestion of oily food and slow down the absorption of fats and carbs.
Alleluia for coming at the right time,
means I can indulge in a little more roast meats and gratins this Christmas and stay lean with my new elf from Trulife :)


TruLife Bird's Nest
It's truly a beauty sleep past week as I indulge in Trulife's Bird's Nest drink before bedtime. 
While we're sleeping, our body goes into repair and rebuild mode,
rejuvenating skin cells, muscles and body tissues.
With an extra boost of bird's nest drink that is packed with collagen and goodness,
with NO colouring
NO preservatives
NO artificial flavouring.
You can safely consume your beauty drink just before you go to bed and wake up all radiant :)

Generic bottled bird's nest drinks are usually overly sweet, but I find Trulife's Rock Sugar acceptable. Instead of having a dessert after dinner, why not swop your dessert for something healthier and beneficial to your skin and body. Retailing at an affordable price at $45.80 for 6 bottles, which is worth every cent to maintain your fountain of youth!

Another point I have to have to must share with you guys is,
TruLife’s sustainable organic farming techniques ensure that it is eco-friendly without compromising on the most stringent and hygienic production process at TruLife’s HAACP-certified facilities. Being environmental and eco friendly, Trulife has definitely got my support. 



TruLife Collagen Cell Renew
Thanks to Trulife, I've been gifted with an array of bedtime beauty drinks. Ive been religiously alternating between the Bird's Nest drink and the Collagen Cell Renew ($56.60 for a box of 10) these past couple of nights coz I'm primping up my skin for this party season. Collagen drinks usually smell kinda fishy and there are some I had to mix with honey to mask the smell of marine life in my mouth. But the pleasant, subtly sweet that isn't cloying of Trulife's Collagen Cell Renew has a nice aftertaste, and together with its thick and rich texture (that's all collagen!!), makes it a refreshing treat especially when chilled. 

Packed with 15000mg of pure micro marine collagen, this drink contains no additives, sugar preservatives or  artificial colour, and is packed with natural collagen peptides-not gelatine-which is more easily absorbed to lock in all that moisture and brighten your complexion in 7 days *preferably taken consecutively for best results*.



Berry EyeHealth
Another favourite herbal supplement, is the Berry EyeHealth.
Having done Lasik earlier this year, it's one of the best things that has happened to me.
Perfect vision.
Wake up and it's all clear!
No more sweaty sliding glasses off my face.
No more carrying contact lenses and cases around.
I could go on and on....
Most importantly, I want to protect and maintain this perfect vision for as long as I can,
and this Berry EyeHealth is my answer!

A friend once shared how his grandma has super duper good eyesight, he said its really the power of Goji berries. This drink not only contains goji berries, it has added bilberry extract! These powerful antioxidants nourish the blood vessels feeding the eye, giving them maximum nutrients and oxygen while protecting against free radical damage. Their Berry EyeHealth is Berry Berry good for you!

Expect a slightly more herbal taste on this one. In fact I found it more "herbally" than the Herbal Detox System. But I'm a huge believer of Chinese herbs and used to taking Chinese medicine, hence all the drinks were palatable to me. 


Beaty and health is really a long term commitment you make to yourself. And one reason I'm a fan of Trulife is because of its research and use of Traditional Chinese Medicine and herbs in their products, combined with modern supplements. Call me an old soul or ah ma. But I strongly advocate appropriate use of Chinese herbs and medicine when needed instead of popping pills. I've gone though a huge circle of subjecting my body to extremes, popping pills and doing all sorts of fast and fad "health regimes", that now I truly believe health is not a quick fix solution. A gentle and natural approach is always a more sustainable one. Your body will thank you for it and work to its potential. Nourish your body and it'll love you back.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Going for Pedicures is a luxury especially when we're so tied up with a million and one things on our checklist. We might even neglect one of our most 'worked out' parts of our bodies, our feet! With all that walking around in heels, dancing/running/spinning classes in covered track shoes, and especially our post London trip, my feet have taken its toll and are as dry as ever.

Thanks to the innovative peeps of Scholl, the leading foot care expert has come up with the perfect new invention to keep callouses at bay.
The all new Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File is an electronix foot file that gently buffs callous dry skin on your feet effortlessly and instantly.


What I love about this product is how straightforward and easy to use. Super appropriate for the tech noob like me. The components are broken down and assembled into its bare minimum and ready to use upon purchase. With a twist of a button, you can start your instant pedi foot buff and in minutes viola! The black buffer roller head is easily detachable to wash after use and/or replace when necessary.

*View at your own discretion my dry and crackly feet before*


Happy feet After



The whole buffing process took me about 5 mins on each foot. After buffing and having post pedi salon feet, and reviewing my before pictures, I felt so ashamed walking around in dry wrinkly cracked feet since my last pedicure!  Beauty really begins at your feet! Beauty isn't just the visible parts that the people can see, but it's important to start grounded and love every part of your body. Give yourself a good treat especially on areas that serve us most and receive the least care, coz they need our love too.


 No excuses for dry feet coz we ain't got time for that pedicure, or when you need an instant quick fix before an upcoming hot date or dinner party. Log on to Scholl's website to find out more. And click here for 10% discount at Redmart, if you purchase before 31 Oct 2015

Golden Jubilee


The year 1998, 
I was in Primary 5,
and one of the requisites of an 11 year old kid in Singapore was to attend the National Day Parade preview show. 
That show was the start of it all.

It was the 1st time I felt what patriotism was (in a less chimalogic expression)
when tears were just rolling down my face as we recited the pledge and sang our anthem.
As a kid, that was standard protocol every morning,
which really didn't strike me much.
Pretty much more like a chant that we learn and just follow.
But somehow, that night, that little Majulah Singapura seedling trigger something.


I felt so so so so blessed to be a part of something and somewhere so huge and great but yet so homely and comfy.
I felt safe and thankful.
Or perhaps it was the goodies loaded fun pack and McChicken burgers that sold me...
Just Joking. (technically, being a foodie kid that might have sold me)
But what really moved me was the songs, the singing.
The classic hits "Count on Me Singapore"
"Stand up for Singapore"
"This is my country This is my flag"
That eventually lead up to the pledge and anthem really got to me.
And from then on,
my dream was to stand on that National Stadium Stage and sing our National song.
Up till this very day,
this childhood dream holds strong and one of the reasons why I wanna be a performer.
I wanna do Singapore proud, 
contribute in my own way,
big or small,
and if I would have the honour someday to stand on that stage,
it would be my greatest greatest GREATEST privilege.


And this year we celebrate our Golden Jubilee with a long #redandwhiteweekend.
I started out our celebrations on the 1st August with the NDP preview show!!
Thanks to the Jean Yip Group who were part of this year's NDP parade, 
giving back to Singapore styling the performers hair,
we had tickets to the previews and actual show!
And the most exciting part of the show for our family this year is watching Aunty Dawn!
She was invited to sing at this year's NDP!!!
So so so proud of her and it's so meaningful cos it's SG50.


And when this came on screen, 
I was jumping up and down!!
Hey Hey is that our mata mata peeps!!!
I was in that uniform too!!!
Suddenly I felt like,
"I'm really part of history too!!"

That was really one of my greatest takeaway given the opportunity to be on mata mata,
a way in which I could be a part of and play out our history.

 
check out that cute photo bomber there. Our Nuffnang manager, Selina!! Haven't met this girl in ages, and that week, we so coincidentally met twice. haha can buy 4d.

Spent the #redandwhiteweekend watching the LKY musical.
The fact that it's our Golden Jubilee and the year we mark the passing of our founding father, the man behind everything we have now, pulled our heart strings. 
The LKY musical gave a good glimpse into the wave of struggles and tenacity Mr Lee and Singapore had.
It was indeed a time when no one saw that Singapore could make it, 
But We Did.
He built a nation strong and free....
Reaching out together in peace and harmony.....
*now altogether....*
"This is my country
This is my flag
This is my future
This is my life
These are my family
These are my friends
We are Singapore
Singaporeans"


On a separate yet similar note,
I always make it a MUST to wear red and white on national day yearly.
We're Singaporeans mah, must bask in the "ang ang mood" (ang= lucky red)
This year it's #redandwhiteweekend ootd for the long weekend!!

Spec: Le Specs
Top: HnM
Skirt: Zara
Belt: Giordano Ladies
Shoes: Tory Burch


 Spent much of the Golden Jubilee filming,
and here's the mata crew (incomplete, missing Shu An, Rifat and Daren) wishing you and Singapore
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!


Love You Much Singapore!!
我们永远支持你!
Salute!!!!

Funtastic Family


Can't believe it's July is ending, and that's how late I am with this post! T'was sitting as my draft for like a month and since I couldn't get it out early July, shall wrap this July up on a colourful note :)
Our family always greet the month of July with a gastronomic affair coz it's Aunty Dawn's birthday, she's a food connoisseur, funnest aunt ever and THE most talented singer!! 

 

Theme for the night was Colourful!! With the prettiest and most colourful dessert spread that we were all lurking around the WHOLE entire night. No kidding man....was like a lion preying over the sweetest and most tempting macaroons, chocolates, cakepops, luscious creamy birthday cakes (so lions probably couldn't care less about dessets, but you get the idea). It was such a dilemma, can't wait for dinner to be over so we can feast on desserts, BUT,  Chef Mama's homemade Japanese omakase menu was simply too amazing and we just wanted more of it. HOW?!?!? Calories and being full wasn't the issue here, we wanted both the food and were preying over the desserts in between courses. Greedy right!! but how not to be greedy when everything is so good?? 


Presenting to you, Chef Mama's very own omakase dinner. Here's only some of the courses, greedy me ate up the rest. Mama's really creative and meticulous and SUPERWOMAN. She designed the menu, went to the market, cooked, and individually plated each course for 50 over peeps!! 


 And if you think the food and desserts are overwhelming enough. There's still games and dress up!!
Haha dressed papa and several other guys in Chinese Princess costumes and laugh all our calories away!! Papa attempting to be Chang er.....errrrrrrrrrrr



 

Thanks for always cracking us up papa but we prefer you like this... your beard didn't go too well with your Princess ootd. But no matter what you're always #onfleek


On a side note, had to post this last pic cos I'm loving this dress from Reformation so much. They're eco-friendly clothes that don't kill the environment. Their dresses are always perfectly feminine, with a subtle sexy touch. 

See you guys in August :)
