Losing stomach fat  

Posted by the Writer

Sometimes you read or see that obese people who successfully shed pounds tend to not be able to remove the excess skin and fat around their bellies, right? And then on some internet ads about weight loss, you see this dude in this size 100 jeans with his now size 32 waistline. Then I wonder, "where'd his excess fat around his tummy go"? Then all that made me wonder how I was going to lose that slightly less than an inch layer of fat on my tummy. And so I went to www.stomachfatloss.org. And all they showed me was pills to do the job for me.

Quick weight loss method  

Posted by the Writer

You hear people say that it's easier to lose weight when you're doing an activity that you enjoy. But then again, for some, they'd be cracking their head trying to figure out what activities it is that they would enjoy because they've been leading such sedentary lifestyles, for instance. From my personal experience, I've found that a quick weight loss "program" for myself would be to work. More specifically, events jobs. One which requires you to move around with your God given legs. It works so well. Now I can't help but check myself out sometimes :)

If you know of a cure for eczema  

Posted by the Writer

That sister of mine has been plagued with this skin condition called eczema for the past, I don't know, 8 years? She's tried a whole bunch of treatments. Steroid creams, swedish bitter, traditional chinese medication, corticosteroids, anti bacterial creams, etc. At one point, she even had an allergic reaction to metal/silver. And that has nothing to do with eczema, but I thought it'd be an excellent addition to the list. So anyway, she's tried all sorts of eczema treatments and none really fixed the problem. It's also because she can't help from scratching that patch of dry skin when she's asleep. If you had/have eczema and know of a cure, please let me know. Every time she scratches that thing, the sound makes me shudder.

Weight loss pills

Apidexin... sounds like the name of the Greek God of Weight Loss.
It's THAT good, based on apidexin reviews on the net. It was the consumer's choice of weight loss product in 2008 and 2009, and a safety score of 98 out of 100. All this glory does not come cheap, of course. It retails around $100 a bottle. Not exactly a dream in a bottle. Or is it?

Account resellers  

Posted by the Writer

It's crazy how many money making opportunities are out there. For instance, being a merchant account reseller. It's pretty similar to selling an account on World of Warcraft. You create an account, build and manage its reputation or rating to allow it to establish itself in the marketplace, then you sell it off, preferably for a profit. All you need is a little start up capital like money, time and some know-how. Super easy right?

Big tvs  

Posted by the Writer

I went to a friend's house the other day. We watched a movie at his place but really, I was there to check out his gimongous tv and play some games on his PS3. Before seeing the actual thing, he brought me for a preview at the store, and boy, was it raining tv deals. Only now do I realize that it could've been a prelude to the annual shopping sale we have here. Not that I remember clearly, but a 42" flat panel for three thousand? Anyway, if you want a real deal, wait till Black Friday... that's going to be crazy.

Dark circles  

Posted by the Writer

I met this person today who has massively huge dark circles around her eyes. Because she has a very stressful job, my first thought was that she's exhausted. But I'm told she has always had them, like she falls down everyday and gets a black eye. I know, kind of mean, but what's life without a few jokes at the expense of someone else? *joke again*

Migraines be gone  

Posted by the Writer

My mum used to have migraines. That's right, what in the name of Joss Whedon did she do to make it go away?! Truth is, I don't quite know. Maybe it was a passing thing, maybe she inadvertently did something right. Either way, you can learn more about migraine treatments not from my mother. Hit the link for more information.

Pink ties  

Posted by the Writer

I like colour. It's in the photos I take, the underwear I wear, and the shoe laces I wear. If I were a working man, I'd wear all sorts of colourful ties! Orange, red, yellow, even pink ties! (I don't think I have any thing pink in my wardrobe at this moment). By the way, I don't see enough men in pink ties. It's not that much of a manhood-shredding colour, really. Why, it's a great colour on men!

Adult acne products  

Posted by the Writer

For a small population of adults, they jump with joy when they discover they still get acne at their age. Once the joy subsides and realization hits, they start fretting about how to get rid of it. Hence, the need for adult acne treatments. I don't think the products are that much different from that of teens, eh? Perhaps the difference in hormones require minute changes in the formula? If only I knew my chemistry.

Acne medication  

Posted by the Writer

Isn't water and sweat the best acne medication? Apparently, not because acne treatment products are doing well. Although, some acne medication like Oxy really do make a difference. If things on your face are so bad that you have to have acne medication, you know the web, or more specifically, social media, will be your friend. E.g., Get on twitter for real time responses to acne products; review blogs for... reviews and; etc. The best thing you can do for almost instant relief, is go to bed early. Duh.

Mounts are your friend  

Posted by the Writer

My uncles and aunts were talking about Singaporean real estate last week, commenting on how small apartments there are. Malaysians are so spoilt with space. As Singapore is becoming increasingly similar to Hong Kong, in that space is limited, the market for mounts (e.g. mount your TV!) and other two or more-in-one furniture will eventually grow. Alternately, we could just live with less stuff.

We don't have to limit mounts to living space restrictions, we can also use it to organize our workplace. Use mounts and zip ties to organize your desk, shelve your books, hold your suitcase full of cosmetics! This way, you have more space to move around and not waste the micro real estate in your pad.

Flatten me like a pancake please  

Posted by the Writer

I played a game of badminton with the parents two days ago. My arms, back, and ass cheek aches! I'm dying for some massage tables at home right now. Imagine the pleasure of one right in my room, and an elephant on top of me... *drool*. Someone tell me why our bodies ache after exercises? Wait, is it because I didn't warm up? Does it really make a difference?! Oh, why do we even bother at all~

Insurance: not so complex any more  

Posted by the Writer

I haven't bought a car before and I don't really know what the process is like when buying insurance for it. But most insurance companies today try to make it very easy and convenient for customers to buy from. That doesn't mean you don't need to do your homework any more. Try reading through some car insurance blogs, or check out forums so you can understand and learn the little tips and tricks involved in insurance buying. Also, don't forget to shop around and ask your insurance agent questions. They're the best source for information like this.

Don't ruin that trip  

Posted by the Writer

It's summer! Yeah, I know, it started a while back but IT'S SUMMER! Going on a road trip? Don't want to go on a road trip but your parents say they'll leave you at home with no money so you can't even call for pizza, if you don't go? Most of us have been there. But now that you have to go, why not make sure it'll be one of the best road trips you'll ever have? Okay, at least one that won't be ruined by a broken down RV (recreational vehicle aka rv). Before you leave for the trip, send it to the shop. During the trip, make sure you have a number to call in case you need specialists in rv repairs. Even better, learn to fix your rv.

I feel like I shared my dad's childhood experiences  

Posted by the Writer

Did you know, at one point in my childhood, I didn't like sleeping on beds?
No? Why would you? I've never told you.

The concept of a comfy mattress didn't seem to make any sense to me at that time. When I had the chance, I'd sleep on the floor. It wasn't because I was a weird weird child or anything; I was just so used to sleeping on the floor.

When I was younger, I used to sleep on cardboards with my grandpa, like my dad did when he was younger. Except, his were often infested with bedbugs. Eww. When I slept in my mum's room, there weren't enough beds (and come to think of it, mattresses,) so I slept on the floor too. It wasn't until I had a (shared) room of my own when I got my own bed.

So really, it looks like there just weren't enough beds/mattresses to sleep on when I was younger.

Stretch Marks  

Posted by the Writer

So it seems that stretch marks can't be avoided because hey, your skin grows an inch when you're preggers. Don't take my word for it, I got that information from the packaging of a liner. What do women turn to then? More often than not, stretch marks creams. But sometimes I wonder, what do celebrities use, other than creams? Is exercise alone enough to get rid of them? HOW DO CREAMS EVEN REMOVE STRETCH MARKS?! Sudden thought: can we conceal stretch marks with (make-up) foundation or concealer?

Big ol' softy  

Posted by the Writer

I think with age (or wisdom?), I'm becoming a little (more) sensitive. I cry all the time! The waterworks was on critical capacity during the season finale of Grey's Anatomy. Also, when a little old lady or grampa dies or is stuck in a sad situation, it makes me cry. My tough girl persona is expiring. Time for a new image eh?

Depression  

Posted by the Writer

Depression... we, the non-depressed, think it's just a disease affecting people, making them sad, sad people. But that's just a general "description", if you will, of the disorder. It actually includes a loss of interest and pleasure in everyday activities and a low self-esteem. Can you imagine not being able to enjoy anything at all, even eating?!

One treatment for depression is Xanax, I'm sure we've all heard of it from Desperate Housewives, or something. Then some have therapy to go with it. For others, it's religion. Like Sammi Cheng, HK Canto-Pop singer and born-again Christian, says, God saved her from her depression and changed her outlook on life. It's all very miraculous and all that.

And to end: did you know, Vincent van Gogh committed suicide partly because of depression?
