Eu Yan Sang TCM Weight Management

Sponsored Post

Most women are dealing with their weight issues for their entire life, be it underweight or overweight, except for the few blessed ones.

Women like me, who are near to stepping into the big forties, are likely to face midlife crisis, such as midlife weight gain due to slow down of body metabolism. If I tell you I've never thought of slimming down, it will be lying to you!

Here, I'm not promoting for excessive weight loss. While I strongly believe that natural is beauty, and we should never judge a book by its cover, we can't deny the fact that first impression counts. Excessive weight loss can only bring about health issues like anorexia nervosa which is an eating disorder.  As a modern woman today, we need to take charge of our own lives and know what is needed best for ourselves.

We need to recognize that obesity is a problem, not because it hinders our looks, but rather, it may be suggestive to health issues. We all know that obesity is likely to bring about health issues like: fatigue, sweating, headache, shortness of breath, back pain, constipation, stomach bloating, diabetes, high blood pressure and osteoarthritis, etc.  Also, it is likely to bring upon lower self-esteem when one simply can't fits in all sizes available in that department store, not even XXL!?!!  Self-confidence is a great contributing factor to beauty!

It's not as if I was never tempted to step into the slimming centers, but I see real life examples of friends of mine, who successfully slimmed down, soon gain weight rebound after they stopped their slimming program and STRICT diet plans suggested to them.

I do ever consider taking a more natural approach like TCM which promotes healthy weight loss through their treatment. Having learnt that TCM approach is mainly referring to the use of acupuncture really puts me off.  Friends who know me well, I'm very afraid of injections, let alone having needles pricking on my body??? This is a big NO to me.

However, after watching the below video on TCM Weight Management (Eu Yan Sang TCM Clinic), I do have second thoughts....

Apparently, I have the misconception of acupuncture is a painful process, which should be more like an achy or numb sensation. After verified with some of my friends who have ever taken acupuncture before, some shared that it felt like a mosquito sting for that moment.

Eu Yan Sang’s TCM approach helps with improving the internal health conditions, stimulate sweat glands, detoxify body, improve metabolism, slow down digestion and suppress appetite, etc., with mainly acupuncture, coupled with prescribed herbal medication, cupping and ear acupressure.  Their proprietary Weight Management Program has a stabilization period that helps reduce chances of weight rebound.  It’s always better to consult a physician to prescribe the best herbal treatment for your specific physique and body condition in order to lose weight effectively.

Interested to find out more about Eu Yan Sang’s TCM Weight Management Program? Sign up for the FREE WORKSHOP on 05 May 2015 by filing up the form here. Dinner and refreshments will be provided during the workshop. There will also be a token of appreciation for all successful attendees.

P/S: Remember, a good treatment alone is not sufficient for you to conquer your weight issue.  A good & balanced diet with regular exercising are also crucial in achieving to live in the body you have always wanted.

[Nostalgic Memories] The Pyramid shaped Milk Tetra Pak by Fraser & Neave

Photo Source:

I wonder if anyone is old enough to remember seeing the above Magnolia Blobs which comes in 2 flavours - plain & creamery. OMG, this picture brought back so much fond memories when F&N Magnolia posted it on their Facebook page ...

Actually there is also Daisy Long Life Milk by F&N in Pyramid Tetra Pak, that comes in chocolate and strawberry flavours as well.  I especially heart the chocolate milk then!

Those were the days when I know not what is pyramid shaped... All I know is, whenever we go outside for breakfast on weekends, my siblings and I will request to have the "triangular" pack of milk.  It is until early 1990s that the pyramid packaging are converted to rectangular Tetra Paks

How I wish they can bring back these pyramid packaging? If not permanent, at least for a limited time.  I guess kids nowadays will still get fascinated by the pyramid packaging?

Come leave a comment and share your thoughts if you have ever tried any of these pyramid shaped milk tetra pak by F&N, be it Magnolia or Daisy.  Or, if this is the first time you see these, what do you think of it versus the current packaging?

New Look for SilkAir Cabin Crew

15 April, 2015, Singapore -- SilkAir introduces its new cabin crew uniform after 11 years with its one-piece wrap dress uniform.
The aqua-blue uniform is for the junior crew while the plum-red
version is for the senior crew

The new uniform design is meant to better reflect SilkAir’s role as regional wing of Singapore Airlines and encapsulate ‘Joy to Fly’ brand vision.

The brighter colours of aqua-blue and plum-red reflect youthfulness while the dark blue skirt, creating deeper synergies with the image of SilkAir’s parent company ~ reliability. The asymmetric neckline gives a polished and refined look with a touch of modernity and style, while the sleeve pleats mirror SilkAir’s attention to detail and thoughtful service with a touch of surprise, and the seagull patterned georgette bow pin represents the airline’s brand logo, with a fine touch of sophisticated femininity.

The two new variations of one-piece uniform is a creation of local fashion designer, Alexandria Chen, a NAFA graduate who established “Alexandria Chen” in 2012 and has designed uniform collections for various established hospitality brands

A runway show was carried out and showcased the evolution of the SilkAir's cabin crew uniform over its 26 years of service. Which design do you fancy most?

The latest uniform by Miss Alexandria Chen, meant for easy to wear, flexible and comfortable, allowing cabin crew the ease of movement when carrying out their duties.

The first uniform of seagull motif dress, is designed by home-grown designer, Celia Loe, projecting SilkAir’s image as a resort airline in the early 1990s.

In 1994, a Balenciaga designed uniform, comprising a floral blouse, skirt and fitted jacket is being adopted by SilkAir, to echo its expansion in the market and focus to reach out to business travellers in addition to holidaymakers.

A decade later, SilkAir launched the one-piece wrap dress with an oriental design created by its own cabin crew in 2004.

Today, SilkAir operates more than 350 weekly flights to 48 destinations in 12 countries. Recent additions to the network include Hangzhou (June 2014), Denpasar (Dec 2014) and the airline will commence operations to Cairns on 30 May 2015. The airline currently has a fleet of 27 aircraft, comprising 5 A319s, 13 A320s and 9 Boeing 737-800s.
