My Philosophies

How time flies, It's second weeks of JULY already!
Started my workout for more than 1 year already! I'm so happy to see my body progress in this 16 months! Get my lazy ass off to the gym is probably the best decision i've made! I love workout so so so much, i enjoy the soreness & OF COURSE the results...It was always a BONUS. I'm happy to challenge myself harder each time, i really really enjoy it. The feeling is great after i accomplish something by my own hardwork. Trust me, u will love this too! Look back all the photos of my body progress really brings me a memories. From 2013 till now! I took photo of my body every month just to keep track all my body changing these months! Of course, i'm not LEAN & FIT all the time, i have my down time & vacation "season" too! That's why u can see..there's changing on my abs. 
Well, let's get back to topic! I'm here today to update a little motivations for you all, something i keep reminding myself these days. No matter how busy my life is..my heart & my mind is still there. 
Not a single second thought of giving up on my goal!


Today, I'm here to share some philosophies that keep me motivated.

1#      LEARN.

Just learn more. Learning is the first step to progress and growth.  I try to learn more about myself and my world, everyday. So get out there and learn more about your body, learn more about your world, learn more about what inspires you, learn more about your dreams. Inspire yourself everyday!

2#       LOVE.

Above all else, we need to love. Love who we are, where we're going and what we want to be. Everyday teaches us and helps us to grow. Love your life everyday and it will love you back.


3#       EVERY MEAL IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO NOURISH YOUR BODY.

The way I see it is, it's your choice at the end of the day. Every single meal you eat is your chance to be healthier. Remember, these choices build up, the more positive ones you make the more positive results you will see. Although i didn't go to gym, i will still control my food intake.

4#        A LITTLE BIT EVERYDAY.

I apply this to every part of my life. Its about breaking up big goals into smaller tasks that you know you can accomplish. It is these little steps we take everyday that bring us closer to what we want. If that goal is to eat healthier, start at one meal each day. If it is to get fit, start with a 10 minute workout/stretch. Discipline can be infectious, just a little bit will go a long way.

What can you do TODAY to bring you closer to your goal.


5#        MAKE TIME FOR YOU.

Reconnect with yourself. Make time to do something that makes you happy. This time feeds our creativity, our positive thinking and our motivation to look after ourselves. If you don't schedule time to do something for you, no one else will. Make it fun and something you WANT to do everyday.

The moral here: If it is something that you truly want, it is a goal – anything else is just a wish.
Life is short so if you have a goal what are you waiting for? Is fear keeping you from going “all in?” For once in your life put 100% into yourself – I promise you will not fail.


Sorry readers, i know i've been neglect about the Fitness posts i've promises before.
But no worries. I will updates it every week this time in my blog & Instagram *promises*

YES, i've been slacking for months. Enjoying all kind of FOOD i never had for so long. 
But in my mind, I'm pretty CLEAR with myself, i remember what my GOAL is, What i want!
Therefore, i'm not giving up. &&&& I really appreciate those who inbox/whatsapp/email to encourage me to keep blogging, you all really gave me a lot of motivations, i'm blessed to have you all, you know who you are :)

 JULY is here! It's another MONTH for all of us.
I will get back to all my routine & work for better results of myself !

STRIP-a-licious, Brazilian Waxing @Strip,Bangsar

TODAY, i'm going to blog about something special. Yes, Brazilian Wax!
You know what, Brazilian Wax is getting more and more common right now. 


Of course, This is not the first time i'm going for Brazilian waxing. I'm a fan of it! I did it few times before & i always convince my friends around me to go for Brazilian wax…cause i really think it's better that way! Hahahaha.  When i think of waxing, the first salon that comes to my mind is STRIP : The Ministry of Waxing. Heard a lot of good reviews about them before. Well, I'm sure they are good for reasons. Alright, today i'm going to share with you all the waxing experience i had in STRIP@Bangsar outlet. 

For those who are not sure what's a Brazilian Wax is, well, Brazilian Wax is the depilation of all hair from the pubic area, both front and back. All off. Don't try to do it yourself at home, leave it to someone who is the expert!  STRIP uses a specially formulated hard wax so you get maximum results with minimum discomfort.


Why would I want to go for a Brazilian wax?

Good question. Why not?  

Brazilian wax is fast and the maintenance can be done monthly (as opposed to shaving, which needs to be done almost daily). Honestly, it's more sensual & CLEAN after waxing..like everything taken off. I really prefer it that way! Besides, it's much more HYGIENIC after waxing. Without the hair getting in the way, it would be cleaner especially during menstruation. Easier to wear bikinis/swimsuits. 

I wax, so I highly recommend it!
Trust me, you will definitely love the after results!

I have always had a high tolerance for pain anyway, so to me, the procedure went really well! I'm really pleased with the results too! It is really exciting to know that hair in waxed areas will not grow back rough. Waxing can be done again between 3-6 weeks. Even when the hair does grow back, it is significantly finer than before. That's the reason why i prefer waxing than shaving! Just a side note: When you’ve been shaving, it’s like cutting your hair, it grows back more coarse. Shaving causes damage to our skin too. And regular shavers can also be prone to ingrown hairs. But when you wax, it pulls from the root, and so when it grows back it will be weaker. The more you wax, the less painful it is. And please please please, get it done by some one who's professional at this. 

I read somewhere that if you want to dull the pain, take 2 Panadol or painkillers before you go for your wax, which will make it more bearable. Not sure whether it's true or not, maybe you can try it out & tell me how that goes :P 

Next, let's take a tour of their  Bangsar Outlet. 
The ambience of the salon is really calm and relaxing, and I was greeted warmly with a cup of tea.
 I felt right at home in Strip. Comfort definitely comes first in the treatment rooms, whilst the professional therapists are sure to get the job done quickly and efficiently! My treatment was done in less than 30 minutes. STRIP really stood by their promise of "Hygiene, Speed and Quality."  


& some background about STRIP: Ministry Of Waxing  


STRIP is globally established brand with a string of 35 uniquely designed stores, STRIP: Ministry Of Waxing is synonymous to top notch body hair removal, thanks to its mantra – HSQ (Hygiene, Speed and Quality). STRIP also carries a range of effective pre and post care products to ensure that customers are well taken care of at all times.

Strip is also incredibly hygienic. A new spatula stick was used each and every time the therapist dipped into the wax pot. Unlike most places where they reuse their waxing sticks which is pretty unhygienic, STRIP’s waxpert/therapist will grab a personal hygiene pack from the wall as they lead you to your treatment room for your Brazilian Wax (or Boyzilian Wax)


Alright, i know you all are curious about THIS. How is this ICE CREAM related with waxing?
It's actually a Special & interesting Package for all of you! It's a combo, STRIP-a-licious! After years of pruning bushes down under, Strip has come up with the perfect formula for the best waxing experience ever. Strip-a-licious Sundae is made up of Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla in one smooth sweet serve. Doesn't this sound so super yummy?

GUESS WHAT? 

STRIP offers the Strip-A-Licious Brazilian Hard Wax Combo for women at only RM58.00 (usual price RM114.50) and the Strip-A-Licious Boyzilian Hard Wax Combo for men at only RM98.00 (usual price RM149.00). It's so much cheaper!!! For the first timer out there, you can try this out!

This Combo treatment refers to the use of STRIP Strawberry Hard Wax at the first stage of waxing, followed by the application of STRIP Chocolate Berry Wax at the second stage, and lastly, a soothing layer of the vanilla coloured STRIP Ice Cream for the perfect topping. Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla, one sweet and smooth serve that lets guests enjoy the core benefits of these three exclusively STRIP products, and to leave with the best waxing experience ever with only RM58  (usual price RM114.50) for Brazilian & RM98 for Boyzilian (usual price RM149.00). 


How is this works?


1. Strawberry 
This strawberry wax is specially created for first time Brazilian virgins. 
It includes Chamomile & Aloe Vera, which are known for calming & soothing the skin. 
It removes hair with minimal discomfort & leaves the skin enveloped in a comforting strawberry scent. 
Strawberry Wax is the ideal blend for first-time Brazilian and Boyzilian treatments as well as those with tender skin.   

My therapist was really professional. She kept talking to me during the whole treatment. 
With her skilled way of handling the equipment & wax, I would be lying if I said the whole session was really quick! Yes, I did experience a split second of pain for a few times, 
but the pain was bearable.  

Here's a photo of the Chocolate Wax & Strawberry Wax. The scent of strawberry and chocolate was pleasant and not at all overpowering, making the waxing experience all the more enjoyable. 

2. Chocolate
The 2nd part is their Chocolate Berry Wax. It is used for the removal of the really short or stubborn hair after the strawberry wax, so that your skin can be as smooooooth as possible. 

3. Vanilla

Lastly, is their after care product 'Ice Cream' for post Brazilian and Boyzilian skin. It is a specially formulated for post hair removal care which helps to hydrate, calm & soften the skin. The 'Ice Cream' cools and soothes my treated area effectively. Just a light application will immediately relieve and revitalize. 

Why have one when you can luxuriate in three? 

STRIP-A-LICIOUS Combo is open to all customers for one time redemption only;
