A pet or a plant ?

What do you think, should I get a pet or a plant? I post this question to my friends & they were divided. Obviously having a plant is easier in terms of caring. But a pet, wow it's so much cuter but a ton of effort is needed.

A puppy is a daring but toilet training???? I have a couple of my friends even given up on that. One has a dog who can pee on the Pee-tray but not poo. The dog will poo everywhere around the house! They are always afraid they might accidentally step on a poo at night. Thank God they have successfully "timed" her poo time - that's once everyday after lunch.... that's after about a year.

For those dogs who pee everywhere & if you have marble flooring, that's a big issue. As the pee will stain the porous flooring ! Also they chew on things. Another friend's puppy chew on her Iphone charger wire & spoil it
naturally ! Then one puppy, chew on a colleague's wall ! A wall? Yes that's right! They could be quite destructive! My mum is totally against it, cos she knows eventually she'll be the one who'll have to look after it.

I guess for now I'll just have to settle for a plant then ....But which plant ?

Any Fat Farms in Singapore?

Someone ask me that, just the other !!!
Well if you are wondering what's that, it obvious, as the name suggested, it's a place where you go to lose weight. I think it was quite popular back in the 80s or 90s. But these days you don't hear people talking about it. It has been replaced by "spas" :))

Besides with the easy of losing weight by just popping a few pills who needs these expensive retreats. Plus if you want to go on a retreat, images of pampering oneself with massages & GOOD FOOD naturally comes up! If I go on a retreat, I'll definitely not starve myself, that's for sure- Dont know about you. The weight gain can be dealt with

Back to the question, so is there any fat farms here? I dont know, but I doubt it ..:))

Yoga @ Orchard? Amazing !!!

Would you do yoga in the public along Orchard rd?

I saw this article sometime last week about this event "Yoga Beat" where 900 people did yoga that way. I did not witness it, but I can imagine, it's so interesting ! What a great idea, right?

 Actually I saw something like that, some time ago. It was in the morning, but with less people. I remember thinking ,wow, how fun. I hope they will host more of these events, maybe even I can participate in one :)) It's a good thing , creating awareness to a very good activity also bringing more life & fun to Orchard Rd :)

Kudos to those who were there!

Do you have any idea what's "Fat Talk" ?

Fat talk is simply a normal everyday conversation with your friends or colleagues , when suddenly
one started complaining about how fat she has become or how her tummy is protruding out & the rest start chipping in with their own complaints. Well after expressing yourself, you should be feeling better right? Unfortunately the answer is NO !Think about it, how can you feel better when you've just pay more attention to the part you dislike most?

Studies have shown, it 'll make you feel depressed & demoralize everyone else. It's like a bad habit we cant get rid of. We do it all the time :(  Even for those of us who are slim, or who have lost weight, we will still complain , never satisfy. Frankly it wont motivate anyone into adopting a healthier life style

Since it's so discouraging, why dont we do something about it?  Well we might not be able to control most things, but this we can. Next time you want to "complain " about your body, STOP ! You are doing your friends & yourself a favor :))

Launching a brand new image for 2015

I've decided to revamp my wardrobe this year- seriously revamping it. Walked into a boutique during the weekend looking for something classy & sophisticated, tired of my usual lay back fashion with all my neutral colours!

I put on a jacket & noticed there were fancy flowered linings & neat little extra pockets on the inside. I felt myself standing a few cms or so  taller in the mirror. I looked sharp & in control. I ended up buying 3 designer dresses, 1 jacket & 2 pairs of designer shoes!

Guess I'm consciously launching Snow 2.0

When you lose weight, where does the fat go? Does deep breathing help you lose weight?

A new study shows, many health professionals cannot correctly answer the question of where body fat goes when people lose weight. The most common misconception among doctors, dieticians and personal trainers is that the missing mass has been converted into energy or heat. The correct answer is that most of the mass is breathed out as carbon dioxide and goes into thin air.

Losing 10 kilograms of fat requires 29 kilograms of oxygen to be inhaled and that this metabolic process produces 28 kilograms of carbon dioxide and 11 kilograms of water.
One of the most frequently asked questions is -whether simply breathing more can cause weight loss. Researchers say -The answer is no. Breathing more than required by a person's metabolic rate leads to hyperventilation, which can result in dizziness, palpitations and loss of consciousness.
But I disagree. If you were to breathe fast , yes it will lead to hyperventilation. But what if you were to breathe deeply & slowly , like what they taught in meditation ? I seriously think it will help in weight loss, but again like all things, it’s not easy to do. I’ve tried , after a few minutes of intensive deep breathing, I got bored or something. But if you can sustain deep breathing for a long period of time, it’s very beneficial & you’ll lose weight !
