NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein – drink to staying trim and young.

You’ve read about NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein and all its goodness.

As mentioned, NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein provides a good source of protein to maintain optimal health. It is a truly wholesome complement to go with any food and beverage throughout the day. And it’s very convenient too as you can sprinkle it over food or mix into drinks.

You know what, I am currently on an anti-aging quest and I am thinking of reducing my food intake because my metabolic rate just isn’t how it used to be :(

I reckon I need to cut out lunch for the rest of my life hur hur hur. So, the NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

Besides the definite results of losing weight by using it as meal replacement, I also benefit in other ways such as better skin as well as stronger hair & nails…all hallmarks of a young person teehee.

# – NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein.

# – A designated scoop comes with the NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein.

# – Love the smart container, it has 2 grooves at the back so you can hold it properly!

I have used protein powder in the past, as a meal replacement back in those #foreveralone days when I worked from home and had nobody to lunch with so I am okay with that sort of arrangement.

My issue is just how I can make the protein drink interesting and delicious everyday…

Of course, NUTRILITE has thought about this conundrum faced by users of NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein.

To start with, NUTRILITE has created delicious drink recipes incorporating NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein that are easy to make, delicious (I can attest to this!) and certainly nutritious.

My favourite one is the chocolate drink!!

INGREDIENTS:

Positrim Dutch Cocoa x 1 pack (or 50grams of ordinary cocoa powder)
NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein x 1 scoop
Low fat milk x 1/2 cup (125ml)
Iced water x 1 cup (250ml)

# – Pour a packet of Positrim Dutch Cocoa into a glass. You can use ordinary cocoa too if you don’t have Positrim Drink Mix, which is a nutritionally-balanced meal replacement for weight control, based on non-fat milk powder sweetened with fructose.

# – Followed by 1 scoop of NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein.

# – Then add 1/2 a cup of low fat milk.

# – Finally, top off with 1 cup of iced water.

# – Stir until lumps disappear. If you’ve got a drink shaker, that’s even better!

# – Drink up!

It is so delicious and satisfying, I could drink it everyday. If you’re afraid of mundanity you could replace the Positrim Dutch Cocoa with Positrim Vanilla and the milk with Active 8 Tangerine/Orange (a healthy alternative from Amway for those who love carbonated or flavoured drinks). This recipe gives you a creamy yet tangy drink. Yums!

# – Here’s to always looking young and trim hehe.

NUTRILITE™ All Plant Protein is now available through Amway Distributors nationwide and at the 20 Amway Shops located in Petaling Jaya, Klang, Wangsa Maju, Ipoh, Taiping, Penang, Perai, Nusa Bestari, Batu Pahat, Segamat, Seremban, Kuantan, Malacca, Mentakab, Kuala Terengganu, Kota Bharu, Bintulu, Alor Setar, Sibu and Brunei.

Taking care of your lady bits.

Sorry. I don’t know how else to title this post. Hehe.

# – This is me trying to look like I write this stuff all the time. Cool and confident, baby. Cool and confident!

Ladies and gentlemen, some things are best left unsaid. This is NOT one of them.

According to a good friend of mine, who does bikini waxing for a living, a lot of women do not take care of their “there”. Dry skin, pimple spots notwithstanding…sometimes they smell also lor!!!!!!

Maybe it’s hormonal, maybe it’s hygiene…but as a female, we should all take care that area, don’t you agree? Even if it isn’t for yourself, do it for your partner. Heck, do it for your bikini waxer!

In comes the range of daily feminine wash by the most trusted and prescribed (by gynaes) brand in feminine hygiene for over 25 years – Lactacyd. The range consists of 5 different washes for 5 different purposes.

# – 1. Lactacyd Lasting Freshness

Eversince I received this range of products, I have developed a sequence of what to use and when depending on the occasion. Lactacyd Lasting Freshness is perfect for everyday use so it is the first one for the day. Smells like fresh green apples…I love it. Make me smell like am totally good to eat hur hur hur

It is very refreshing and lasts pretty much the whole day. Also, it contains lactic acid from natural milk extracts to prevent stickiness and the discomfort of irritation. Love it!

# – 2. Lactacyd Revitalize

Lactacyd Revitalize is the one I use before I go to bed. It is part of my anti-aging regiment…alongside my anti-aging skincare hehe. What use of me looking younger if I undress to reveal a wrinkly, flapping l a b i a???

The mild formula, enhanced with vitamin E and collagen rejuvenates by preventing dryness and loss of skin elasticity. I supposed this would work very well for mothers who gave birth naturally too. It feels extra smooth and supple….very luxurious.

# – 3. Lactacyd pH 3.5

Now Lactacyd pH 3.5 is the one I use when I will be out for a long time. I think it’s perfect for travelling, when you don’t have the chance to make pit stops for some freshening up. And yes, this is the Lactacyd product that we’re most familiar with, the one that your gynae, sister and mother would recommend.

Thanks to its unique combination of natural milk Lactoserum/Lactic acid, Lactacyd pH 3.5 maintains your natural vagina pH, giving your lady bits freedom from infection, itching and malodour.

By the way, if you’re a person who’s constantly on the go, you should try the Lactacyd Feminine Wipes.

# – Lactacyd Feminine Wipes

Especially useful during period, after peeing and the damned stickiness during ovulation. Its waterless solution does a wonderful job at cleaning away any stickiness and discomfort.

# – 4. Lactacyd Nourish

I use Lactacyd Nourish when I know that…I am getting lucky trolololol . With extra 10% milk-based moisturizing ingredients, it makes my vajayjay extra silky and supple :D Maybe I will use this more when I want to make babies teehehehe.

Of course, the light floral scent accentuates the feeling of silky softness and everything else…

# – 5. Lactacyd White Intimate

The one I use the least but I do use it after I have worn especially tight jeans. Why? Cause it lightens the intimate area and we all know too much friction makes your skin looks darker.

Lactacyd White Intimate is made with natural lightening ingredients, which are plant based Actipone-B and marine-based Algowhite to gently lighten the skin around the intimate area. Based on a user test on 100 Asian women by Synovate Ipsos from September – December 2011, 9 out of 10 Asian women claim to see visible lightening results within 4 weeks based on actual product use test.

So besides cleansing, you also get the benefit of having fairer bits in the long run.

# – The entire range.

There, 5 very different feminine wash for 5 very different purposes. Which are you thinking of getting?

They are available at all major pharmacies with price ranging from RM24.70 – RM25.90 for 250ml and RM9.30 – RM9.90 for 60ml. As for the wipes, they are priced at RM4.90 per pack of 10s.

Happy Chinese New Year 2013

2013 CNY is so different for me because G and I have to give angpows out for the first time!

All in all, I only received a total of 4 angpows this year – from my dad, mum, popo and awesome kaufu/kaumou :)

# – My face packing angpows. Serious business.

First day of CNY was spent with my parents and some relatives. Good thing I married a white man…I can still spend CNY with my family :D

# – What we wore on 1st day.

So mitchy matchy? Cause I did the shopping :P

I got my entire 2013 CNY wardrobe from Forever21 cause they were having an awesome sales.

# – All stuffed in one car to visit relatives. Dad, Mom, me, G and my two brothers.

This is our only family portrait for CNY 2013. I don’t know why we don’t have a family portrait tradition. I get kinda jealous seeing other families doing it…I must initiate it next year. I also need to do that tea pouring ritual for my parents. I can’t even play mahjong. I must improve on being a chinese.

On the 2nd day we went to visit my popo in Mentakab, my mom’s mom. She’s awesome <3

She's the light of our family, always jolly and interested. Yes, she does bug me about having babies but only in a caring, loving granny sort of way. I love her so much!

She was randomly telling me a story about how a young hen's egg when cracked onto a hot saucepan the yolk would stay intact, while an old hen's egg when cracked onto a hot saucepan the yolk would just disintegrate. Then she gave me a troll smile.

Oh my popo!

# - Here she is distributing ice cream cones to us. My lil brother, Nicklaus...his face is epic here.

Of course no CNY is complete without some firecrackers. Surprisingly it was my kaumou who was the most gungho about lighting it up.

# – Boom boom pow.

We left Mentakab for home after that, and I have vegetated since. I haven’t gambled once. Again, I need to improve on being a chinese.

Happy lunar new year everyone! Hope the snake year will bring you abundance of wealth and great health to enjoy them. Most importantly, hope you’re surrounded by good loving people always.

Gong hei fatt choi!
