After almost six months with us, Gracie has grown. Grown a bit too fat to be carried around for long that is. HA. My hubby has been asking me to get her a doggie carrier for months but I’ve not paid heed because I’d thought it’s okay to carry her around if I need to. But after some encounters when we brought her out, I think he’s right that putting her in a bag makes it easier for us to go to places where dogs may be frowned upon. So I finally succumbed and got her a simple dog carrier from Pet Lovers. Not the best looking I guess but it’s functional for our needs.
Almost every day, I try to eat a slice of pineapple. I love the taste and of course, the high dose of vitamin C in the fruit. But most of all, I’ve found that eating a slice of pineapple daily helps keep my tummy flatter effortlessly. I know some of you are reading this with much skepticism but I’m telling you that it works for me.
So on Friday night, I headed to Grand Hyatt Singapore for a staycation with the family. It was rather last minute, something I did not plan for as I went on invitation by the hotel. The timing however was perfect because it was the beginning of school holidays for my son and it also happened a week after we had some renovation works at home.
I was reading the papers the other day and caught a glimpse of the beauty secret of Maggie Cheung, an ex-Hong Kong beauty queen and a rather famous actress. Some of her more memorable movies include In The Mood For Love and 2046. Anyway, according to the article, she jumpstarts her day with a glass of warm water every morning. Well, I got curious and tried to find out more and it seems the news isn’t exactly right because various sources are reporting that it’s not just warm water she’s drinking but it’s really warm water with sea salt every morning on an empty stomach. Don’t ask me how she can drink salty water but apparently, this daily morning routine has been keeping the 49-year-old actress slim.
If you’re looking for a cheap-and-effective hand cream, I’ll recommend the Madre Labs Unscented Hand Cream With Argan Nut Oil. It usually costs US$6.71 but is going for US$2 if you purchase it with any bath and beauty products at iHerb.com for a limited time now. It’s a full-size tube weighing 71 g and while it is not the best hand cream around, it is definitely a good promotional buy. In fact, I scored it for free when I got it last month.
