Live Well. Laugh Often. Love Much.

the SMURFS LIVE on stage!

My girls told me just days ago that they would really like to watch the Smurfs live in Singapore. They were like going on and on about how much they love the Smurfs and who their favourite characters are.

OKAY, I GET THE HINT.

You think they would be pretty excited if I were to tell them that I am bringing them to watch the Smurfs?

You think they would get all the more excited if I were to tell them that each of them will be getting a FREE SMURF PLUSH TOY WORTH $50?

Oh yes, you can receive the Smurf plush toy too with every $130 or $120 ticket purchase!

While stocks last!

Fall for you.

“The average woman loses 100-150 hairs per day. That’s about 36 000 hairs per year!”

OH MY GOD!

 DOVE6

I am definitely one of the hair fall victims. My hair is usually everywhere.

I WOULD NORMALLY JUST QUICKLY BLOW THE HAIRS AWAY WHEN NOBODY’S WATCHING TO AVOID FURTHER EMBARASSMENT.

 DOVE4

I have tried various ways to minimize hair fall. Some products did not seem to work. Some worked, but only for a while.

SO I GAVE UP AND JUST LET NATURE TAKE ITS COURSE.

I did not ask anyone for help. I mean, excessive hair loss is not something that many women would want to openly discuss, right?

I used to fear visits to hair salons after I gave birth to my girls because the first thing the stylist would say was,

“You’ve lost a lot of hair. You just gave birth is it?”

DOVE2

WHAT DO YOU THINK, SMART MOUTH?

NEEDLESS TO SAY, I STOPPED VISITING THE SALONS WITH INSENSITIVE STYLISTS LIKE THAT. LOL.

Loss of confidence, just like that.

AND WORSE STILL, NEED TO CONSTANTLY DO HOUSEWORK.

SWEEP FLOOR LAH, WHAT ELSE?

It *is* a pretty embarrassing issue for most women.

So let me discuss this issue openly right now in this post.

READ ON IF YOU WANT BEAUTIFUL AND STRONG HAIR.

DOVE3 

Did you know that 78% natural hair loss occurs from the root?

SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, THEN?

Yes, we must target the roots in order to stop more hair loss!

HAIR LOSS IS NOT A DISEASE, LADIES!

This also means it does not need to cured. All we need to do is to take good care of our hair by using the right products to prevent more hair loss in future.

DOVE’S HAIR FALL RESCUE RANGE STRENGTHENS OUR “HAIR GLUE” AND NIPS HAIR LOSS FROM ROOT TO TIP!

DOVE22

I am not kidding you because I am currently using Dove Hair Fall Rescue range for my hair! It consists of the shampoo, conditioner and leave-on intensive root treatment.

The most common mistake most of us make is to just focus on buying good hair fall shampoo and conditioner to treat hair loss problems.

MY DEAR, HAIR FALL SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER ONLY TREAT 22% OF THE PROBLEM. 

DOVE’S HAIR FALL RESCUE TONIC TREATS THE OTHER 78%.

How so?

By acting like glue for your hair right at the roots!

Therefore, my favourite and must apply product on my hair has got to be Dove Hair Fall Rescue Tonic ! It is so easy to use with no funny smell or feel!

 DOVE11

How to use?

 

  1. Stare at it.

 

DOVE7

  1. Part your hair and apply onto scalp

 DOVE8

  1. Simply massage onto the scalp and hair roots

 DOVE9

 DOVE10

 

You can actually see results within two weeks!

DOVE23

 

If you want optimal results, use more than 2 weeks, then!

And apart from using good hair loss products like Dove, you can also practise the following:

  1. Exercise regularly to reduce stress
  2. Do not blow-dry or flat iron your hair on a daily basis
  3. Do not comb your hair when it is wet
  4. Reduce hair styles like tight ponytails or braids on a daily basis
  5. Drink natural juices
  6. Have a healthy and balanced diet
  7. Drink plenty of water throughout the day

Here’s to beautiful and healthy hair, ladies!

Daffy Diah!

Have you heard?

Have you read?

 

INV7

You must listen to RIA 89.7 FM tomorrow morning because I have a radio interview with Adi Rahman from 8 am to 10 am.

WHEN WAS THE LAST RADIO INTERVIEW I SCREWED UP? OH YA, I SCREWED UP ALL OF THEM. LOL.

Apparently, I have been shortlisted as one of the 50 inspirational Malay women this time round.

WHY, THANK YOU!

Adi is trying to be funny by asking me to host his morning show with him for TWO HOURS tomorrow.

Well, I will do him a favour and sound funny, without even trying too hard. See, I will have a slurred speech for the next few days or so.

Yes lahhhhh, I cannot talk normal lahhhhhh. 

So do not judge me when you hear me talking like Daffy Duck tomorrow morning on air.

(I keep biting on my tongue.)

I REPEAT, DO NOT JUDGE.

Let me explain why.

 

INV5

I had 4 pre-molars extracted two days ago.

Two upper.

Two lower.

ALL AT ONE GO WITHIN FORTY MINUTES.

(Do not be deceived by that sad face. It was not painful at all.)

WHAT TEETH DID I EXACTLY EXTRACT?

NO, NOT WISDOM TEETH.

(My hygienist did spot one wisdom tooth (to the horror!), but she said that it does not require extraction as of now.)

 

NO, NOT TOOTH DECAY.

(Which reminds me. I must do scaling and polishing every six months or so.)

 

NO, NOT WEARING BRACES.

(I do not quite fancy the idea of having a metal mouth 24/7, though it is a pretty cute sight too.)

 

So, why then did I have four teeth pulled out?

 

Definitely not because I had nothing better to do.

 

I HAVE JUST STARTED ON MY INVISALIGN JOURNEY JUST YESTERDAY!A DAY AFTER MY TEETH EXTRACTION.

 

INV3

 

Do you know what invisalign is?

Invisalign is like braces, but so much better!

WHY BETTER?

  1. Invisible/Clear Plastic
  2. Removable
  3. No difficulty eating
  4. No discomfort from wires

 

This is half of me (don’t ask why I took a half shot) with Invisalign aligners on!

 

INV7

 

Remember I had four teeth (pre-molars, to be exact) extracted?

CAN YOU EVEN SEE?

COOL HUH?!

WHY AM I WEARING INVISALIGN, YOU ASK?

Well, my teeth may look pretty okay to you in pictures. Look at this picture for instance. Looks pretty normal, right?

 INV1

 

 

But trust me, they are not normal. They are pretty abnormal when I open my mouth. 

Seriously, I do wonder why it took me THIS LONG to decide on doing something about my teeth. I mean, if I had started on it years ago, I would have perfect teeth by now. Perfect teeth mean no crookedness whatsoever. And most importantly, perfect means it makes me confident and feel good about myself.

I do not want to HAHA HEHE without being conscious about how I look. Pretty worried that I might look like a monster besides sounding like one. I really have such a loud laughter, you know?

LIKE SUPER DUPER LOUD. I DO GET ANNOYED LISTENING TO MYSELF LAUGH SOMETIMES.

So far so good, though it is a pretty weird feeling to have plastic in my mouth almost 24/7. Oral hygiene however, is way better ever since I started on invisalign. Before eating, must remove the aligners. After every meal, must brush teeth and floss before putting on the aligners.

A bit lazy to snack on junk or unnecessary stuff because I will really think twice or thrice before removing the aligners to eat. This might actually contribute to weight loss, don’t you think? We shall see….

And to those who have been asking, no, the teeth extraction was not at all painful, as promised by the people from Orchard Scotts Dental. When they were preparing to numb my mouth area, all I did was to close my eyes so that I would not faint at the sight of the needles and all. The entire process was basically like tug and pull. LOL. I was given painkillers just in case if I felt pain after the extraction. But I am proud to say that I did not even take the painkillers because well, there was no pain at all. So do you understand now why I could even happily go to the hair salon the day after my teeth extraction? Hehehe.

I am going to blog more about my invisalign journey. Nothing much to blog about for now because I have just started on it.

For now, thank you to my dentist Dr Jerry Ong and the wonderful team from Orchard Scotts Dental for making me a step closer towards having a beautiful and confident smile!

INV2

Will blog more about them too. Must let you know just how awesome all of them are! Every single one of them!

For more Invisalign enquiries, you can contact them directly at 6732 9939

For now, I will just smile like this and not scare people around me.

 

INV4

 

YOU WAIT.

VERY SOON, I WILL SMILE SO WIDELY FOR YOU FROM PASIR RIS TO JURONG!

YA, THAT FAR (-FETCHED).

Want me to tell you more about my Invisalign journey?

Save it!

“Good morning Mummy, we want to shower!” 

exclaimed my twins Mysha and Myreen.

Time check: 9 am

So while the girls were showering, I cleared some of my pending chores. Like packing of orders. Like making the bed. Like cleaning the room.

Time check: 10.15 am

I suddenly remembered that the twins were still in the bathroom.

ONE HOUR AND FIFTEEN MINUTES OF SHOWER?? SERIOUSLY, KIDDOS???

I went to the bathroom and checked on them. They were still in the shower, giggling away and chitchatting about their classmates. When they saw me, they chuckled and continued chitchatting.

“Excuse me, you can continue chitchatting later! How can you take this long to shower? You need to help me and daddy save water so that we do not have pay a lot for the water bill.”

And they disappeared from the bathroom almost immediately.

WATER CONSERVATION (click, click, click!) is something that kids need more exposure to. I do not exactly blame them for not realizing how precious water is. And to nag at them for not saving water is not exactly a good idea either.

Good habits do not form overnight. One thing for sure, you need to set a good example for them. You cannot possibly expect them to shower for less than 5 minutes every time while you take your own sweet time in the shower, for instance.

One good way is to make them realize the importance of water conservation is by listening to Ah Gong.

AH GONG WHO?

Not my Ah Gong.

Not yours also.

JUST WATCH THIS VIDEO WITH YOUR CHILD RIGHT NOW.

 

Thank you Ah Gong. When I was a child, I thought that the water that came out from the tap and shower was free, just like water from the lakes and sea. The only difference was, the water from homes was clean. Yah.

I did not know that small adjustments could have a big impact.

What are some water saving tips that you can think of?

I can think of a few!

  1. Wash vegetables and salads in a bowl rather than under a running tap.

 

  1. Run the washing machine only on a full load.

 

  1. Wash your car with a bucket and sponge.

 

PUB4

  1. Collect rinse water from the washing machine and use it to flush the toilet or mop the floor.

PUB3

 pub1

  1. Turn off taps tightly to ensure they do not drip.

 PUB5

  1. Do not leave the tap running when you are brushing your teeth.

 

  1. Insert thimbles or water saving devices at taps with high flow rate.

 

  1. Monitor your water bill to monitor your family’s water consumption. If your consumption is more than average, re-look your family’s water usage habits.

 

  1. If you nominated for the ice bucket challenge, accept it, video yourself and then make the decision to save all the water inside the bucket instead of torturing yourself with it. You will be labeled as a hero thereafter. You can thank me later once you make it big.

 

Lastly, according to Mysha,

“Do not cry all the time, Myreen Nadya! Must save water.”

 PUB2

HAHAHAH SO CUTE.

Small adjustments can have a big impact.

Here are some ways you can challenge yourself and make that drastic change in your water bill! 

WHO IS UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?!!

CHALLENGE 1:

Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes.

You will save up to 1,000 gallons a month!

CHALLENGE 2:

Put a barrel outdoor to catch rain water, then use that water for things like watering plants or flushing toilets.

You will save hundreds of gallons of water a year.

 

CHALLENGE 3:

Shower together with your spouse all the time!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

This one, I am sure you all can do easily, right?

You cheeky monkeys.

 

Even if you do just one thing each day to contribute to your home’s water conservation, you’re doing the right thing!

Come visit PUB’s Water Conservation Showroom on Wheels from 7 – 26 March 2015!

You will be able to get useful tips on how to save water as well as have your picture taken at our photobooth. You may even get a chance to catch PUB’s mascot, Water Wally!

Why so FREE?

Usually when you go shopping, you will try the product first before buying and make every purchase value for money, right?

Wouldn’t it be fun if the same thing applied to online shopping as well?

Well, maybe it is possible.

INTRODUCING TO YOU SAMPLE STORE 

 

Sample Store is the first & top tryvertising platform in Singapore that offers FREE samples and FREE membership!

 

WHO DOESN’T LIKE FREEBIES???!!

This is how Sample Store works.

aaaaa16

SEE? EVERYTHING IS FOR FREE ONE!

Registration? FREE

Select samples of your choice? FREE

Delivery? FREE (for the FREE samples only!)

And the best thing is, you get to choose whatever samples you would like to try once you sign up as a member!

 

So I received my samples few days back in this cute packaging!

 sample7

Say, I have redeemed all these samples already!

 

 sample6

Say, I am intending to redeem this.

 sample12

And this.

 sample11

 

This one perhaps.


sample10

And maybe this too.

 

 sample9

 

 

What am I saying?

I CAN REDEEM ALL FOUR AT THE SAME TIME!

 

Yes, that’s right. How Sample Store differentiates itself is the very fact that they allow their members to redeem whatever product they would like to try before delivering the samples to the customers, without any delivery charges! As mentioned earlier, the free delivery is only applicable for FREE samples!

Once you have received the samples, all you need to do is to rate and review the products you have redeemed before you can redeem more free samples in future! Fair enough? And by doing so, other members can study the ratings and reviews which will then give them a better idea on if they should purchase the product or not.

MUMMIES, THEY EVEN HAVE A NEW SAMPLING CATEGORY FOR KIDS!

 sample1

 

YOU CAN REDEEM MUSIC CLASES, KIDS GYM, MATH CLASSES, COOKING CLASSES FOR KIDS, AND MORE!

I was browsing through Sample Store the other day and I chanced upon the free trial baking lessons for kids offered by Genius R Us. Cupcake lesson and cookie lesson, to name a few. So I was thinking, why not redeem that for my girls since the March holidays are here anyway?

 sample2

Check this out.

The retail price of the workshop is actually $45, but if you redeem it, your kid will get to enjoy the trial class for free. Only $10 is needed for material fees!

 sample5

 

Here are some of the ratings from other members with regards to the baking classes conducted by Genius R Us.

 sample4

Decision making has never been this easy!

TEMPTED ALREADY?
