How Do You Eat Grapefruit?

How Do You Eat Grapefruit?

I like to eat my grapefruit by cutting it into half, then juice it. If I slice the grapefruit and eat it from the skin, I find it super messy and the acidic juice tend to sting the skin surrounding my mouth. Thus, I find […]

It Will Never Happen To Me

It Will Never Happen To Me

If you were as fat as one of those participants of Asia’s Biggest Loser, would you consider taking fat burner for men or some slimming products for women? If I were so huge or even half the size of those participants, I would definitely consider […]

Pimple Cream

Pimple Cream

I am thankful that I am blessed with a flawless complexion. I hardly ever buy acne cream like therapores. My existing tube of pimple cream is more than 3 years old and there is still half a tube left. My hubby uses the pimple cream too once in a blue moon. I must remember to check the expiry date on the tube of pimple cream today, lest we get poisoned by applying expired topical meds on our skin.

New LCD TV

New LCD TV

We may get a new LCD TV for our home. Our old TV will be given to a relative. I wish there were Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales here where discounts of up to 70% on electrical appliances will be up for grabs. On top of that, there’s even free shipping. What a pity there ain’t such deals here. I hope that our regular electrical shop will give us a good deal on our TV purchase.

Of Colloidal Gold And Gold Bullions

Of Colloidal Gold And Gold Bullions

Did you know that you can actually eat gold? I am not saying chunks of gold or gold bullion but particle size colloidal gold. Colloidal gold is micro-clusters of 99.9% pure gold suspended in pure distilled revitalized water. Colloidal gold is gaining recognition as a super food. Colloidal gold is beneficial to the mind-body in that it promotes higher potentials of mental, emotional and physical well-being. It can also strengthen the body’s immune system, combat fatigue, promotes a sense of euphoria and reduce depression. I don’t mind giving colloidal gold a try to boost my mental well-being as I have been feeling lethargic, stressed up and over-worked lately. And if someone gives me some gold bullions as a gift, that would lift my mood up instantly too!
