BottomSlim #2


I have so many weaknesses and one of them is the ability in saying "NO" to food. I love to eat, like who doesn't right? It is hard for me to keep and maintain that ideal weight of mine because when I eat, I eat A LOT. I forget about everything and binge like nobody business. If you read my previous blog post on 9 Halal Food Places (here), you would know how much of a foodie I am! When people asked me, "Do you exercise?", my answer will be the usual, "No, I don't." Saying “No Time” is just an excuse that you make it up for yourself, because if you really want to do something, you would definitely squeeze the time in between your busy schedule and make it happen by hook or by crook. As for my case, I just totally lost the motivation in exercising. #realist

Another half of my time is spent mostly sitting in front of my work desk clearing emails, writing up blog posts, editing photos etc. I didn't know that long hours of sitting can cause one to have a heavier bottom. Ugh? Some girls may even face issues like cellulite and stretch marks even though they may not be big in size. Scary right?

For those who exercise on a regular basis, I am sure you know how difficult it is to lose that tiny bit of fat in some area of your body, especially your lower body like your hips, thighs and bums. All girls like you and me all dream about having their perfect figure and it wouldn't make any of us feel better when watching the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. We always end up pinching our fats that's bulging out from out top and wonder why did we even allow that to happen. HAHAHAHAHA!

I've never faced any serious weight issues except for the time when I was in Year 1 poly and I gained almost 5 kg from eating spaghetti and chicken cutlet EVERY DAY! That's by far the heaviest I've gotten, which was 50kg. Thinking back, I think I felt alright though. At least when I think back now, I can truthfully say I been through the experience of what is like to look like a fish ball with my tight top and high-waisted shorts. OMG, I still remember. I can feel like my excess skin folding at my pit area, my belly and my thighs. Hahaha... I secretly enjoyed it while it lasted.

But anyway back to my story, I did attempt to cut down on my food intake because I feel that "Okay this is enough. I need to watch my diet. No more TRCC (name of the food stall in my school) food." I started to pay more attention to my diet and I try to take time out to exercise, that extra layer of fat slowly hid itself and I started to slowly feel better about myself.

But with the recent raya and my never ending food adventures, I feel that I am going back to old self again L And with my packed schedule, finding time to exercise is sometimes close to impossible because I will be too tired to even move. I thought it would be a good idea to visit BottomSlim since I was starting to get self-conscious about my body.

This is not my first visit to BottomSlim. The last time I went was almost a year and a half ago! BottomSlim is the pioneer in lower body slimming to effectively solve common lower body issues like bulging tummy, wide hip, bulky thighs, chunky calves, stretch-marks, cellulite, toxic and water retention as well as sagging buttocks.

I made an appointment with BottomSlim a few days before my consultation and treatment.
Previously visited the outlet over at City Square but I decided to try out the outlet over at
Ngee Ann City this time round! This outlet has a total different vibe and ambience. It's more cosy and relaxing. I feel that it's an ideal place for moms as there's a mini playground along the reception area. They can have their me-time while leaving your kids to play! I'm sure the friendly stuff will take good care of them. 

Ms Jacklin was my specialist for that session and she took me to the consultation room. During consultation, I found out that there are several problems that one can face example, detox, water retention, body fats and so on.





I was discussing with her what my concern was and she did a thourough check on me by doing up a detailed analysis of my thighs, hips and bums. I was given 2 treatments to help target areas which I was facing problem with! 

I had flabby thighs and hips. It was all sagging. I wasn't satisfied with my lower body at all as I haven't been physically active for about a year already. I feel that I can further improve it. I was hoping that I can achieve a more toner thighs as well as reduce the fats around my hips. 



My comfy bed for two hours and the thoughtful staff left a flower for me too hehehe :)



Had to take my weight first before proceeding to do the treatments



My first treatment

1. Signature Tummy, Hip and Thighs Trimmer: (TMC)/ Detox

- Shapes and trims away unwanted bulges at difficult to lose areas (tummy, hip, thighs)
- relieves water retention
- tones and shapes up body area
- detoxification
- improves overall circulation
- increase metabolism






The whole process was pretty comfortable. It doesn't hurt at all. You can only feel a funny sensation which was tolerable.

After the first treatment, I could feel that my hips and thighs area are much firmer, like it feels less chubby! Would be exaggerating if I say I could feel that my thighs are skinnier now since it's only just my first session. But trust me you can feel the difference after the first treatment. What I really like about it is the strong suction effect which you will experience which feels more like a massage to me. Didn’t felt any pain and I was happy with my toner thighs. Can say goodbye to jiggly fats :P


My second treatment

2. Pro-Sonic (Back thighs and butt) for firming and toning 

- breaks down stubborn fats into smaller pockets for easier dispersion
- breaks down bulges accumulated over prolonged sitting poor posture
- improve skin texture - smoother and firmer
- reduces appearance of cellulite
- lightens stretch marks and scars
- tones and lifts sagging muscles for better definition : perkier butt!
- promotes overall circulation and boosts metabolism
- boosts lymphatic drainage, lessens lethargy


It felt weird in the beginning because they had to apply an extremely cold gel before doing the firming. A few minutes, I got used to it. It felt reaaaallly good and soothing. Harmless. 


(Just for reference)



They took a before and after photos for me to see the changes and I AM ACTUALLY VERY AMAZED that the machines here can do so much for my bum! They simply just apply the gel and continuously massage my bum and it is slimmer than before. I didn’t know that such technology actually exist hahahaha. I wasn't expecting much of a difference but okay, this one really got me. I think the result varies among everybody and it definitely takes more than 1 treatment to see obvious results. I would say that this is good way to lose weight and detox fast (without all the exercising). For now I can temporary say bye to cellulite and a firmer bum. Can go to the beach already.


Overall, my experience was fairly good! Within one session, I could tell the difference. You can imagine if you were to go more than one session. It wouldn't be a disappointment! I would recommend you guys to try out BottomSlim even for those who are slim because there might be some targeted problem areas that you might not know of. Example, myself. I wouldn't have known of my problems if it weren't for the consultation. 


After my session ended, I received the Nano Firm Gel and Nano X Plus Gel from BottomSlim. The first one is to firm whichever areas you want to tone up and the second one is to help burn fats. I think this is just a sample for me to try out at home and I already started using it and I can’t wait to see the results!

Adventure Cove

It has been a long time since I last went to Adventure Cove. I've been wanting to go for a swim and Sentosa isn't really an ideal place to go. It's more for tanning since it's a beach and I don't think swimming in the sea would be a great idea. Wild Wild Wet was the next thing that I thought of and neh, it's too boring and outdated. Last but not least was Adventure Cove! I thought, well why not? Dragged boyfriend to go along with me since he has never been to that place before!

First of all, for those who wish to go Adventure Cove via own transport, I suggest you park your vehicle at the beach station which I heard, it's much more cheaper. $3 per entry. Regretted parking the car at Resort World Sentosa because we had to pay $26 at the end of the day. Gosh!!!

I felt like a kid. Super excited!

There are different swimming pools within the place itself. My favourite one was the round about pool. While swimming in the pool, you can see stingray and other fishes swimming in the other side of the pool. You can look at it up-close. Stingrays are cute because they smile. Really. When you look at their mouth, it look as if it's happy and smiling away.


Here's a 15 sec video of my day at Adventure Cove
(15 sec is not even enough)


After a long tiring day under the scorching sun, we drove to Rochester Park to have dinner at THE WEJS @ Medici Cafe.

YUMMY!






Syazwan and Syahirah joined us for dinner! We had churros for dessert after our main course. 

My weakness: I can't reject food.

Mika Rayn and Suri Ayra Birthday

Recently, my family celebrated Mika Rayn's 5th birthday and Suri Ayra's 1st birthday at Punggol East Multi Purpose Hall. It was located near to my sister's place as it was so much easier to move things around. Both of them share the same birthdate which is 24th September 2014. How lucky! Mika and Suri are both my niece and nephew. Time sure flies so fast. Could remember vividly how Mika and Suri look like when they were still a newborn baby!

I came to a realisation that most of my family members are born in the month of September. My grandmother, my 2nd sister and all of my niece and nephews (in total four of them).

Anyway, the theme for the birthday party was 'Dots, Stripes and Pastels' which means everyone has to dress up in polka dots, stripes or pastel colours. It was obvious enough that my dress code was off the theme. Green, seriously?


How can one say NO to food

Even though it's already October, but I'm just going to wish again
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKA AND SURI!
Please don't grow up too fast...
