Standard Charter Marathon

Yesterday was really a gruelling and tough marathon for me. I didn’t really train for it and suddenly Jack just told me to go for it as he can”t make it. So I went for it yesterday and at around 30+ km mark, my legs started to give way.

But good thing is that Dewei and I managed to push through to 40 km and then struggled through our painful stitches and ran the last 2 km to the finishing point.

Now my whole body is still aching from the physical exertion and stress that it undergone.

Well, I think I will not be running the next marathon… I think age is catching up else if I really want to continue, I’ll need to train up then.

Uplifting Facial Treatment – Younger by 5 Years Instantly

Wow! Today is really an amazing day for me! :D I went to Janice’s place for a facial treatment and what I got as a result was a surprise for myself.

People who know me will always tell me to get some rest because of my eyebags that are due to lack of sleep. For me, I guess I am really too complacent about my face already. But when I hit 25, I instinctively knew that I really need to take care of my face. So I went in search for some facial treatment and ways on taking care of my face i.e. using masks and stuff like that. But then I met Janice who really shared a lot of her facial knowledge with me and I started to know more about how to properly take care of my skin.

Today as scheduled, I went for my Artistry Experience which checked the condition of my hair, scalp, face and even till the size of my facial pores. It’s such a eye-opener for me as I finally know that not only I gotten oily skin but I’ve got dry skin underneath my oil layer. So in effect, I’ve always gotten my skin condition kind of wrong. After that, the consultant taught me the proper way to take care of my hair, scalp and face by showing it to me and demo on me. Well for me, it was really a new experience and when Janice came, she immediately noticed my face and asked if the consultant did put some powder on my face which in fact didn’t.

So when we got back to Janice’s place where she prepared all the necessary things needed to help do a facial for me, I took some photos of myself as I wanted to get those “Before and After” look in order to really see the difference. The photos are in the order of before getting the facial done, during the process of every step i.e. scrubbing, putting on mask, after the detox treatment, after hydrating and finally full face.

1-tired-eyes

2-after-scrub

3-putting-on-pore-cleansing-mask

4-after-moisture-intense-mask

5-after-facial-detox+massage

6-after-hydrating-cream

7-full-face-treated-with-left-side

So right now, after this uplifting experience by Janice, I’ve totally in full faith of the products and will continue using them and also learn more from Janice about how to take care of my face properly.

Hey, since you’ve been reading for so long, why not like this? I’ll extend to you an invitation. If you want to get this kind of experience or just want to learn more about facial skin care on how to take care of your face properly, I’ll be happy to share with you the knowledge.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me at: brian @ lamyungching.com or 9862 1579. Or if you prefer, just leave a comment for me. Enjoy your day! :D

Carbohydrates Blocker – Is It For Real?

First of all, I don’t really believe in all the things about carbohydrates blocker and such. Because I always feel that these kind of supplements don’t really help. I always believe that you are what you eat.

So recently, work matters increased quite a bit and sometimes I’ve to meet clients at fast food joints. Then eventually, the intake of fast food also increased. So in the end, I ended up 5kg more! Well, I’m not blaming my work. Just that even though it’s flexible, it didn’t help in me in my weight issues.

So I started a search on those carbohydrates blocker which I don’t believe in. But the main reason why I don’t like these carbohydrates blocker is that it has side effects due to some chemical contents that are always present. So what I wanted is actually some form of natural carbohydrates blocker.

Well, I am still searching for one now. Might be going to try one that my friend going to recommend me though. Will tell you the results next time.

Rainy Days…Pondering Time

It’s raining now and I’m typing this at home while listening to radio. It just seems so long that I’ve listened to radio.

Today it’s a relaxing Sunday for me.

I’ve been thinking of a lot of things recently…about how my life turned out the way I wanted it to be. It’s just so interesting and unique that a person’s life can turned out so different even if their experiences are so similar or even if they comes from the same family background.

I have met some people who related their life stories to me these few days. Some are really successful in almost every aspect of their life, earning well over 6 figures or 7 figures income. They spoken to me about what I wanted in life and also regarding building my first pot of gold.

Well, haven you ever thought of how to build your first pot of gold? If you haven’t, maybe I can share with you what I’ve learned from it.

Okay good, the rain is clearing up. =) Back to listening my radio that’s playing “Nan Ren Nu Ren” now.

Needs Physical Improvement!

Went jogging on yesterday. Really felt the tiredness from the run itself. Clocked 30 mins for a 5km run… really not at my peak… need a lot of  improvement soon.

Well, owing to a busy schedule, I’ve tried to incorporate exercises whenever I can or have my free time. Though it wasn’t my ideal number of times, it’s still better than nothing. haha.

Anyway, still thinking of whether I can go for this year’s safra run or not coz of my schedule…

Also had lunch with Valerie at Vivo’s Kim Gary, food was okay coz I din expect much just that the chicken I ordered came with only a small portion of vegetables…pathetic. Then also saw Kristine, Vincent, Jasmine and Poh Soon and chatted awhile.

Later went over to get a pair of ear phones at Best Denki. Been thinking of getting it for so long already…

Working at End of CNY

Today is the end of Chinese New Year called Yuan Xiao. Because of this, my ex-boss, Kim, asked me if I wanted to work or not for this event. Since I was having a bit of free time and also wanted to catch up with him and maybe Kenny, I agreed to work today.

So I was there at the Tian Fu Gong at Telok Ayer street. This event was held by the Hokkien Association of Singapore.

I was supposed to be the in-charge for firing the confetti cannons which marks the start and the end of the celebration. The first cue was good, but the second cue when I have to wait for the white colorful dragon to go off wasn’t timed accurately. Because there wasn’t any cue signal that I can follow and luckily Kim was around to see that the dragon was going off and told me to fire. Else I think it will just go off without my confetti shots.

The event was supposed to start at 7pm but it kind of dragged as usual… to 8pm before the actual performance starts. And I hadn’t had dinner at that time yet…

Well, overall the performance was only okay, not that fantastic and with some cockups… Saw that there’s some communication lags that caused the cockups..

Hmm… after the work, it just pack up and go. But I’m really tired after everything because I have not been doing these kind of “siong” activities except for exercising. Last I did was last year. Hmm…am I getting weak? Damn… need to train up once again. Nevermind, it will give me more energy. :D

Ciao~ I’m going to rest already.

But he left soon after we started on eating the steamboat which they left some food for us.

Treating My Back Problems – Natural Chiropractic Treatment

Today is my appointment with Spinetrends after the x-rays have been sent to them. I was really anxious about what the x-rays going to show and how my back is treating me… since I had serious backache last year.

When I went over I was show like 4 x-rays and I was kind of shocked! I knew I had some sort of misalignment in my back but I never did expected it to be so serious… it was like 2-3cm curving away from the center line of what should be a normal spinal column. That’s serious for me but it’s really only the first stage of subluxation. That wasn’t the end of it yet… my neck was also screwed up too… damn… it was like too forward a bit and causes stress on my neck and body weight.

Well, what to do… such a screwed up spinal column… need treatment soon else I will be living with it for the rest of my life which I definitely don’t want to live with the pain for all my life.

So after what Dr. Brian talked to me about how this backbone of mine will be giving me problems in the future…actually I wasn’t really listening :P because I had experienced the pain before and was just recalling all those painful experiences which I don’t want to get it again.

Well, it didn’t really take much convincing for me to sign up for the treatment as I really value my health and my life thus it’s almost automatic that I will be getting the treatment. Anyway, the chiropractic treatment is natural which means there’s no drugs involved and it’s just pure adjustment of the spinal column and my neck on an adjustment table.

Anyway, it’s a year long treatment which I will be undergoing from now on. For those of you who might have back problems or backache, feel free to leave some comments.
