I was in for a shock when I saw the sheer size of my new backpack. Holy Moly! I know it’s a computer backpack but S-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y? This is gigantic! It is OMG…larger than life! And not only is it oversized, it’s got really loud and bold graphics! Surely nobody’s gonna miss this bag from a mile. HA. Talk about making a statement!
I first learned of HABA from a reader some years back and recall seeing them at the basement of Takashimaya. I even wanted to try their washing powder at one stage. But because I couldn’t erase the image of my mom using washing powder to wash clothes back when I was a kid, I gave up the idea quite quickly. So the brand soon slipped under my radar. It only resurfaced recently when I was invited to their Suntec outlet and that was when I found out about their full range of additive-free or Mutenka cosmetics that are free of parabens, fragrances, mineral oils, chemically synthesized tar colors and petrochemical surfactants.
With the temperature turning up and the air quality becoming worse, I’ve restorted to lunching in on most days. But I got tired of buying my food so this week, I decided to pack my own lunchbox every single day! Besides eating healthier food, I can better protect my skin by staying away from the scorching sun. And it helps that I have good company because a few of my colleagues have the habit of lunching in too.
While I don’t have dry skin, I do know how it feels to have one. At one stage, my cheeks were so dry and tight, I felt like they’d cracked when I smiled. It was awful. So when a reader by the name of Ann wrote in a comment recently that she is faced with increasingly dry skin and no face cream or moisturizer seems to help, I could empathize with her pain. But the question I found myself asking: is her issue a case of dry skin or dehyrated skin?
