Know Your Flow Girl!

Today's Post is Totally for the Ladies Out There, Yea you mah girllllll! It's gonna be about your monthly problem called - PERIOD/MENSUS/ BIG AUNT/ TIME OF THE MONTH etc. So If you are a man, and you wish to read on, you are a welcome to understand more about our monthly woes.

What I would like to share today is that:
Heavy periods are anything but Rare or Normal
For most women, menstruation is just part of life, Cramps, Bleeding from time to time down there throughout the day, till the day it all ends. But for women suffering from Heavy Menstrual Bleeding(HMB), it is much more than that and can severely affect their quality of life.

I went for a event the other day where we got to learn more about HMB and I'm going to share some fun facts with you all! We even had the La Senza experts coming in to teach us on proper ways to make our breast comfortable during the time of the month. Yes.

I believe that each of us girls have experienced Pre-menstrual Syndrome(PMS) and sometimes we really wonder if those damn hormones are really playing with us or is it just in our head.. 

But It's TRUE!! PMS is only 1 of the few symptoms we girls face every month. Period can affect our quality of life quite drastically actually. It affects our attendance at work or school, our choice of clothes, our daily activities and also our Sex Life! In conclusion hor, I believe that having period will bring DOWN our self esteem and bring UP our self - consciousness lor! And It is just worst when you have HMB Every Single Month!

So how do you determine if you have HMB?
You Period may be abnormal if you have like most of the Experiences stated below at the "Amount" Row! *Changing of pads means that every 2 hours, your pad is fully soaked kind ah, not like the normal hygiene change, different hor!

Growth of lumps in your uterus might also be causes of HMB, If you have constant Bad cramps that affect your daily life activities, please go seek a doctor's opinion!

And What can we do to ease the pain(literally) of the month:
Keep Track of your menstrual cycle
Exercise Regularly
(Not only when you are having your period then you exercise)
Have a Hot Water Bottle or Maybe Just your favourite Cushion/Pillow
(To hug on to when the cramps gets real bad)
A Massage session to relieve the stress
(A little massage doesn't hurt, and its good for stress relieve too!)

If not, Just Indulge in food, In my opinion, Food always helps!
We were treated to a 4 Course Dinner at OTTO Ristorante, Yum yums!

I had a very fun night with the girls and I learnt so much more about our period! 

Stay Beautiful! ♥

With Love, M

10 Signs that you are in love, not just liking the person

I saw this article online and I thought that I would love to share the points here with you all! I'm a sucker for all of this kind of articles and I really take some of them seriously. #geekornot 
When you think about the person you have in mind now, Are they any of this?

1. The best part of your day
As Childish Gambino said, “When I’m alone, I’d rather be with you.” Seeing my girlfriend is always the highlight of my day. If you really love someone, you never truly get tired of him or her.
No matter how great your day might be going, your special person will make it better. When you just like someone, he or she might make your day better, but probably isn’t the best part.

2. The first person you think about

Your love will be the first person you think about when you wake up and the last person you think about before you go to sleep. When something good happens to you, this is the first person you want to tell.
When something bad happens to you, you look to this person for support.

3. Prioritize above your own needs

Love is selfless. I was the most important person in my world until I met my girlfriend. Once I fell in love with her, her needs became much more important than my own.
This is just how love is. Your needs always seem trivial in comparison to your significant other’s needs.

4. You’d do anything

If I tried to construct a list of things I wouldn’t do for my girlfriend, the list would be pretty empty. When you’re in love with someone, you do whatever you can to make the person happy.
When you like someone, you may feel like there is a lot you would do for the person, but you have your limits. True love knows no limits.

5. You are never afraid to express your feelings in public

I have this semi-bad habit of telling the world how in love I am with my girlfriend.
When you’re truly in love, you want everyone to know. You are not bashful about your feelings by any means. When you like someone, there is a lot of holding back on how you feel.

6. You love the imperfections

My girlfriend is the most beautiful girl I know, but she does have some imperfections. But, to me, they’re not imperfections — they’re unique qualities and things I love.
When I tease her about them, she thinks I am making fun of her, but I am truly just admiring them. Love is the ability to know and accept someone’s faults.
You may know the imperfections of a person you like, but having the capacity to embrace them likely won’t happen unless you fall in love.

7. You think long-term

When you’re in love with someone, it’s hard to imagine a future without the person in it. For this reason, you will think long-term about how you can build a life with this person.
You won’t give in to short-term temptations that might mess up your long-term goals. When you just like someone, thinking long-term can be pretty scary.

8. You become a better person

No one is perfect; we all have room for improvement. But, being in love will force you to work on these things.
You want to become the best version of yourself for the person you love. I am a better person now than I was before I met my girlfriend.

9. Your feelings are unconditional

When you love someone unconditionally, it means that your love knows no conditions and is absolute. I don’t actually like the term “unconditional love” because I think it’s redundant — I believe all true love is unconditional.
When you like someone, your feelings change depending on the condition.

10. Your love is your best friend

Sometime along the way, my girlfriend became my best friend. I believe this to be true for most people who fall in love.
Your significant other becomes your partner in crime. You feel like, together, you can take on the world.

I wish everyone would have a great holiday season ya! I'm so immersed in the festive season with all the gift ideas and card writing! Yahoooooo! ♥

With Love, M

I was invited to try out the Ice Scalp Therapy which aims to:

Clarify and Energizing 
Regulate Sebum and Control Dandruff

Solves Grey hair problem 
Promotes Hair Growth 

 The Ice Scalp Therapy is made with Orential Herbal Powder helps to clarify and energize the scalp. Nourish the hair follicles. Extend hair growth phase and also to reduce the percentage of hair fall. Improve hair strength and volume Regulate sebum and dandruff. Aid the removal of dead skin cells and promote healthy cell renewal, YAY to all these! I need all of this!!

First off it is started with a hair wash and my hair has been pretty neglected by my laziness and after a professional scalp shampooing, my hair is officially like a ball of fur. Hahaha!

After the awesome head shampooing session, it time for the Scalp Therapy & Hair Mask! My scalp was feeling the coolness when the herbal mixture was applied on my scalp but what made it crazy icy was the hair steaming session! But no worries for friends with sensitive scalp as the Ice Scalp Therapy also helps to relax your scalp so that your scalp is not stressed out which can cause headaches you know??

After the hair steaming session, we go on with a Scalp Revitalizer to help protect your scalp and revitalize your scalp for a healthier scalp to aid in hair growth! 

My hair is so much smoother after the hair mask and my head was feeling lighter after the therapy! And since I had a event the next evening, they even helped me style my hair! It looks really really curly now because it has to last me till the next evening but I love how smooth my hair feels! ♥

Jack's Place Hearty U.S Premium Selection Menu

Whenever Jack's Place is mentioned, we would definitely think of "Steak" & "Family". Offering great service and delicious food at pocket-friendly prices and suitable for family gatherings, Jack's place is definitely the choice for locals and expats. The restaurant has recently launched its wholesome U.S Premium Selection menu.

We got to try out some of the customer favourites first before we head on to try the U.S. Premium Selection!
Ice Mango & Strawberry Cooler - $4.90
Losbter Bisque - $5.90

It was my first experience with Escargots and I must say I did not fall in love, but the texture was really unique and chewy. The creamy garlic butter was really aromatic and it helped me to brave up to put the escargot into my mouth without harping too much that it was a snail.
Escargot in Creamy Garlic Butter(12pcs) - $20.40

Featuring 6 new dishes, which includes the finest Kurobuta Pork or "black hog" Pork, USA Brandt steak cuts and Chargrilled Baby back ribs. The U.S. Premium Selection is only available at the Great World City & The Grandstand outlets!

Hitting you first with a crowd favourite of the night - BBQ baby back ribs with pineapple BBQ sauce. Served with lattice fries and mesclun salad drizzled with honey mustard dressing & buttered corn kernels. The tender Ribs are fork tender and the sweet yet saltish pineapple BBQ sauce made the whole dish really addictive!

The Grilled Kurobuta Pork of rack with onion brown sauce and strawberries compote topped with tian tomato, served with garlic mash potato & daily vegetables. Accompanied with fresh mesclun salad drizzled with honey mustard dressing. Tender Juicy piece of kurobuta pork paired well with the onion brown sauce as if 2 dancing partners made for each other.

Grilled Kurobuta eye fillet of loin served with black peppery glaze accompanied with roasted onions and new potato and crisp mesclun salad drizzled with honey mustard sauce was my personal favourite, Tender & juicy on it's own, I could not explain how much I love it, the tenderness with the light flavours that are just right to fill your taste buds. The Kurobuta fillet of collar coated with "biscuits crushed & herbs" served with tartar sauce was not to my liking as it is fried and a little dry, I prefer my pork grilled.

The US Premier Cuts Brandt 365 days Grain-fed beef striploin steak served with Jack's special black pepper sauce, baked jacket potato and seasonal vegetables.

With this, I sum up the 6 New U.S. Premium Selection from Jack's Place! I highly recommend the Kurobuta fillet of loin but if you are steak-ing to steak(pun intended), I suggest the USA Brandt Ribeye Cut! Hehe, And also, Jack's Place still does the Table Side service for all your main dish that comes with a side of the baked jacket potato, how awesome is this!

I'm definitely going back to have my Kurobuta Fillet of Loin soon!

With Love, M
