Slimming made easy by Vermilion Slimming Support

Counting down to 3 months to my wedding. For this whole year, I had been looking for different ways to slim down. Even though, I managed to slim down 7kg since last year. I had yet reached my ideal weight and body shape. As the clock is ticking, I get more and more anxious about looking good on my big day.

Thank Vermilion, I came to know this amazing Vermilion slimming jelly which they carry. Vermilion is a Singapore based company dealing with preventative health, anti -aging medicine and health products which combine the Western medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover

Today let us go back to the very basic of skincare.  Before you cleanse your face or pile on multi layers of skin care products, proper removal of your makeup and even the skincare products is very important.

Most of us will overlook the importance of makeup removal in our beauty regimen. It washes away cosmetics , impurities and dirt from the surface of your skin, which could lead to irritation or cause your skin to age more rapidly. It help to promotes cellular renewal by eliminating dead skin. By massaging, it help to stimulate skin’s microcirculation. Most importantly, It allow our skin to breath and to have better absorption when you pile on your skin care product.

Even knowing the importance of removing make up, I tend to get lazy on that sometime especially after a long tiring day or party. Instead of the long process of wiping off all the make up yet still having residue on your skin, I have a solution of you now.

It’s  Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover !!

BOMB Cosmetic : Create your own scents with Little Hotties ~❤

If you are unable to find the perfect scent for your room or house. Try to create your own scents using Litle Hotties from Bomb Cosemetic. 
 

Choose your favorite Little Hotties Scents

All you have to do is to place a few of your favorite Little Hotties on a burner. I gotten my little pink flower burner from Daiso.

I decided to create my own scent using a combination of Lavender, Rasberry Ripple and White Tea. I was amazed by how they melts and combined together the pretty pink candle.

End Product

The scent which I have gotten in the end was surprisingly nice. It was not to strong. It had the lightly lavender scent which help in relaxation and the sweetness from the raspberry. The melted hotties allowed me to use for almost 2 weeks with everyday of burning. You don’t need to worry that the scents will be gone after multiple times of burning. It still filled my room atmosphere with the sweet relaxing scent.

Traditional Nonya and Hainanese Food at Pow Sing Restaurant ~❤

Pow sing was started by Mr Lee Chin Soo & Mr Steven Tan in the year 1983. Being traditional Hanianese they wanted to share with Singapore the true taste of “Haninaese Chicken Rice” and hence “Pow Sing Hainanese Chinken Rice” stall was opened at Serangoon Garden.
In the year 1989,they felt that they could do more to promote Singapore food and so they hired a traditional Nonya Chef and came up with “Pow Sing Restaurant”

Food tasting with the pretty babes, Apple and Carmen

Pow Sin Menu

Ah-char

Instead of the normal sweet and sourish ah char that we use to have. The ah-char that was served have this lightly curry flavor. It were very appetizing.

Nonya Cabbage Roll

$10/$15/$20

The crunchy cabbage wrapped with otah make the dish have a different level of flavor. The cabbages were sweet and infuse with the curry sauce made the dish very tasteful.

Hainanese Chicken

$5 per serving

The Hainanese Chicken was tender. However, it was not smooth enough.

Crispy Nonya Toufu

$8/$12/$16

The Crispy Nonya Toufu was heavenly. Even thought it was as very crispy. But the Toufu simply just melt in your mouth, as if you are eating beadcurd.

Fish Head Curry

$32/$36

The fish head curry was one of Pow Sing’s signature dishes. Instead of the normal curry, the fish head curry had a touch of assam taste. It slight sourness made it more appetizing. The amounts of assorted vegetables were very generous too. The most important part of the fish head curry was the fish head. The fish was very fresh and the meat was tender. Even thought it was being cooked in curry, you still will be able to taste the sweetness of the fish. I strongly recommended their Fish Head Curry.

Nonya Chap Chye

$8/$12/$16

The Nonya Chap Chye tasted average. The vegetable were all soaked with the sauce.However, there is a slight bitterness which i dont really like.

Prawns with Traditional Nonya Sauce

$18/$27/$36

The prawns were one of my favorite dishes too. Not only that the prawns were fresh and well cooked. I love the tastefulness of the prawn that is cooked in the traditional Nonya sauce. The spicyness were just right, it did not overpower the natural taste of the prawns.

End your meal with their chedol.

Moxibustion Therapy at Da Tong TCM ~❤

 
This is the first time that I know about Moxibustion from Da Tong Chinese Physician Acupuncture and Tunia.
 
Moxibustion therapy is a Traditional Chinese Medical treatment that assists in dispelling cold and damp from the body. It is useful in helping with a wide range of conditions including aches and pains even poor digestion.
 
Moxibustion is the burning of an herb called Mugwort. The herbs or moxa come in different forms like cigar-like rolls, raw rice grain size pieces etc. In TCM, Mugwort is considered to be warm, acrid and bitter when used in herbal prescription. When burnt, it has the similar properties and thus it is warming the body channels. The bitter and acrid aspects of Mugworth can helps to break stagnation, clear phlegm and rectify the qi and blood. Moxibustion can consider to be a parallel therapy to acupuncture, being used to stimulate qi flow at points on the body that are selected for their specific function. There two form of moxibustion either direct or indirect.  
 
Moxibustion therapy is useful for many disorders including digestive orders such as diarrhea, food stagnation, painful periods, painful periods (menstruation cramps), sexual dyfunction, poor concentration or memory, sports injuries, frozen shoulders, colds and flu. 
 
 
Simple yet cosy room 
 
 
Products used during treatment
 
Moxibustion therapy can help to improve insomnia, kidney problem, stiff neck and shoulder, ovarian and spine problem. I having insomnia and bad menstruation cramps. The lady boss recommended me to do the Moxibustion for my insomnia as the effect will be more observe. For my menstruation cramps problems, She advised that it will be best to do the Moxibustion therapy before my menstruation. 
 
The whole Moxibustion Therapy consist of 4 parts. The total treatment lasted for 1.5 hours.
 
Part 1 : Massage using the medicated essential oil 
 
 
To start off the whole Moxibustion therapy, the ladyboss massaged the medical essential oil into my tummy. It will also help to loosen up the jing mai to help the absorption of the essential oil. The ladyboss is very professional and massage from the within. When she massage, I can feel that it not as smooth. According to the ladyboss that alot of jams in my jing mai.
 
After the jing mai is loosen up. We proceeded with the second stage of the whole therapy. 
 
Part 2 : Gui Sha
 


Gui Sha will help to scrap off the “coldness” in the body. It also help to detox. The lady boss is very detail and careful. She will keep asking me whether is it painful. 

Part 3 : Application of mineral mud

The lady boss applied the mineral mud at the various acupuncture points on my tummy and leg.

Part 4 : Moxibustion

In Da Tong TCM, the moxa that they used come in cigar-like form. They will light up the cigar-like moxa using heat from it to allow the herbs to penetrate into the body. I was kind of worry about the heat at first. Starting it abit warm as it was placed above the acupuncture points, slowly it started to get the burning sensation. It still bearable. However, the burning level that you will experience depending on individual body. According to the lady boss, cause my body is weak and there alot of toxic that jams in the body. Therefore, I will experience a sharp burning sensation as the moxa is trying to penetrated through. I could literally feel the moxa entering by body.

After the moxibustion therapy, I had a better sleep and took me lesser time to fall asleep for the next few nights.
