Vita Green Lingzhi

Sponsored Review


Few nights ago, when ZY saw this box on my table, he goes, "wah, rich". I was surprised that he knew it's good stuff. I asked him, "you know what is this meh?". And he said a few of his close friends are taking Lingzhi supplement and they told him it's good, so he knows lor.

Then i asked him another super lame question, "eat liao will put on weight anot?". He said, "ya ya ya, if you don't want, i can help you to eat".

He's joking with me! Consuming Lingzhi supplement will not put on weight at all. He just wanna scare me so i'll give the whole box to him, lolol! 

Well, i'm indeed lucky to get sponsored, try and share with you guys the benefits of Lingzhi. Frankly speaking, before this sponsorship, i've heard of Lingzhi but i don't know what is it and what is it for. And i doubt i'll go and find out more about it as well. Thanks to this sponsorship, i gained new knowledge overnight! =D

So, what is Lingzhi?

Lingzhi (Reishi) is the rarest and most precious of Chinese medicinal herbs, renowned for its superb healing powers and free from side effects. Lingzhi has long been prized for its ability to strengthen the heart, boost energy, improve memory, refine the complexion, promote good circulation, restore health and lead to longevity. 


Hmm... If Lingzhi is so good, then Vita Green Lingzhi must be very 'tok gong' (best) becos it is made of up 6 different colors of Lingzhi. Each color serves different functions and benefits.
  • White for lungs
  • Green for liver and eyes
  • Black for brain and kidney
  • Violet for replenish vital energy
  • Red for joint, skin and heart
  • Yellow for spleen and intestines


OMG, i need to show you guys this! Read the circled, "SLOWS DOWN THE SIGNS OF AGING". Wah! I'm sure everyone will love to look younger than their age, yes? And that's not all...


Vita Green Lingzhi has other beauty benefits too!
  • Beauty
  • Anti‐aging
  • Antioxidant
  • Reduce allergy symptoms
  • Reduce white hair
  • Reduce age spots
  • Help sleep

Vita Green Lingzhi is #1 Best Selling Lingzhi product in Hong Kong for 10 years and was just launched in Singapore! Vita Green Lingzhi not only enhance human immune system, it also facilitate detoxification, improve complexion, slow down aging and rich with anti-oxidant.




All you have to do is to take 1-2 capsule(s) daily. 

I started with 1 capsule a day cos i don't know how will my body react to it. Well, i'm still taking 1 capsule daily cos it's already working good on me.

Now, i don't feel lethargic & sleepy during day time anymore. And i can sleep well and long at night! And and, i'm able to 'relieve' myself everyday (sorry if you're disgusted). Only people with constipation will understand how i feel.

I don't know to be sad or happy that my tummy is "so strong", i never had diarrhea before (only once when i was pregnant with Raeann but i suspect she's the one having diarrhea, not me), and i can be constipated for a few days. And during that few days, i can eat alot but don't know where the food goes to.

Introduced my mum to take it too, as she has very serious insomnia. And she told me, "Lingzhi is very very good. Your dad used to take it cos his friend always bought it for him from overseas". Ohh, NOW I KNOW!

iPhone 5

Suddenly, out of the blue, I'm being upgraded to an iPhone 5, without having to do anything (like transferring datas) or paying a single cent.

My hor sin (housefly) husband did everything for me. Becos he's the one forcing me to change despite me saying "I don't wanna change" for the whole day.

He can scold, nag & pester me for the whole day just becos I don't wanna change, as my 4S is still working fine and I hate changing phone cos it's so troublesome!

So he offered to do everything for me and gave his 32gb to me (he will use the 16gb instead), just to make me change my phone, why got such people one? Don't wanna change got wrong meh?

His way of "doting me" is, flooding me with tons of gadgets which I'm not very interested. He just bought an iPad as well.

The thing about him is, he love wasting money on gadgets, but he will throw it aside after one month. My room is filled with gadgets, lying around. Had a hard time searching for his Tab 2 last night becos the kids dumped it inside the clothes basket (for months already I think) and he don't bother at all.

Honestly, I don't really fancy iP5 after testing out the camera that time. But cos I'm not a gadget person, the husband is always the one deciding for me. I can make do with any phones which can call, surf net & take nice pictures! Haha that's my "basic" requirements. Other than that, I don't bother.

Shit, I've to let him sell away my 4S, got feeling liao leh... :(

Already sold. I'll miss you, 4S!

Aiya, I think I know why he forced me to change iPhone 5...

 
Cos he wanna have couple phone with me lah!!!
 
He fixed the screen protector, casing & home button sticker for me. How nice right? Hahaha! Okay lah, this phone, don't really like the front camera though...
 
Off to bed now. Will blog about the dinner with Vic Vic (just now) tomorrow! So happy that she's gonna stay in SG for good now!!!

Some happy news!

I've been wanting to blog about these but erm, hesistating, cos it's not 100% confirmed yet. But you see, i'm one who cannot hide my happiness, excitement nor anger. (I'll not pretend to be nice to you if i don't like you.) I'm good at keeping secrets though! =P

May this blog be my wishing well, i wish and pray for everything to fall in place smoothly. Really thankful for the opportunity & everything! =)

1) One Danga


Invested in our first condo! =D 

P/S : Me and ZY paid 50% each.  

Actually, we've already made the deposit and signed the agreement on 18th Jan 2013. Keeping my fingers crossed, i hope the loan will be approved! *pray*

2) Celine


Officially owned one on 19th Feb 2013. 

No, no one and nothing agitates me. This is just one of my 2013 resolutions! 

P/S : Hahahaha, ZY don't know about this bag yet, even though i've been carrying it around!

3) Beautilicious Seoul


Booked our 6D4N Korea - Seoul (semi) Tour on 19th Feb 2013 as well, at an unbelievable price!

Keeping my fingers crossed again, i hope i'll receive some good news on the 10th March 2013!!!

In one day, i fulfilled two of my 2013 resolutions! What a great day! =D

P/S : Heart pain, yes! But i can proudly say that i paid everything with my own hard earned money!!! Does anyone knows that kind of 满足感? I guess i'm in another stage of my life, where men, romance, love, flowers or alcohol doesn't arouse me anymore!

蛇年初七 :: 人日

Reached our uncle's house quite late cos it suddenly rain super heavily, so paiseh cos everyone was waiting for us to lo-hei (again). Standard one, must 捞 two times with them every year, i don't understand why either.

Raeann didn't go cos she went to Angeline's (cousin's gf) 21st with my cousins at Downtown East. ZY didn't wanna go cos he think it's too far and it's so difficult to find carpark there, he's the one driving so he decide. Anyway, i passed her an angbao the day before and sent a representative there, so i'm less guilty in a way. 




They prepared a table of food + steamboat & bbq! Wooohooo!

蛇年初四 2013

Was supposed to start work on 初四 but the husband last minute planned to invite his friends over for dinner + gambling session. And becos nothing was prepared, i took leave to go and buy food with him & prepared everything!




I bought 3 boxes of quail eggs becos it's XS's and my favorite. I was told by ZY that they were coming. I didn't plan to invite anyone at first, only till the very last minute then i informed Cheryl and Ling but they can't make it. Boiled and peeled it myself till my gelish drop lor, i'm so nice!!! Haha


For the guests!


We opened 1 big + 2 regular cans of abalone, 2 cans of 鲍贝 and 1 can of 鲍筍.


And then with all these, veges, a big box of scallops and many other seafood! (Forgot to take pics!) Can't really remember what food are there but i know it's ALOT. 


Early birds! 

To our surprise, most of the food were cleared, we were kinda shock how much all ZY's friends can eat! No wonder they can be friends lah, becos ZY is also the same! We were quite happy that the food were cleared, so we won't have to eat the same thing over and over again. 


Then, at 8+pm, my dad SUDDENLY informed that his friend (with wife & kids) are coming. In less than 30 minutes, one pool of people marched in. Many of them, i never see before and i don't know who are they (should be that uncle's friends or relatives). But still gotta give angbaos!!! 

Becos my dad's friend gave it to Raeann and Raechelle. So i've no choice but to give back. But i can't possibly give only to his kids and not the other kids, paiseh mah, i gave all lor. End up, those kids' parents also buay paiseh one. Sat there, eat, drink and act blur! DUH

It's not the money that matters okay, it's their attitude, cannot understand why are there so many such people in this world! Especially those sibei rich ones, they are sibei stingy. Buay tahan! 

Think we must learn to be more thick-skinned! >.<

P/S : XS didn't come in the end. She sibei molly lah, say dinner time, then 10pm, then 11pm. I told her i wanna zzz liao cos need to work the next day. Hamster came to gamble till 3am i think?

Funny Relative Terms

Couple of days ago, my cousin msg me on FB, asking if I'm going to 大姨妈's house? First thing that came to my mind, 大姨妈 = menstruation? Lol. Then I asked him who is 大姨妈? Becos his 大姨妈 is my 大姑 so I don't know who issit and yeap, I'm really bad at all these relative terms.

Till now, I still don't know what to address my cousin's wife?

My daughter address my 2nd uncle "二叔公". And for those who didn't know, 二叔公 (ee sock gong) = pawn shop.

I find these relative terms really hilarious and if it's me, I'd prefer to be addressed as Aunty/Uncle. Simple and nice! Make things easy also, don't have to remember so hard how to address.

Luckily I only have one sister. If not, in future, I'll have little nephews and nieces addressing me as 大姨妈 too.

Gosh, what a name! >.<

My Dad

Just done with the "once a year" gathering at my uncle's place, my dad's brother. Happy cos I get to play mahjong after so long! Sad cos I'm the only loser! But still feel happy to see all my cousins & their little kids.

Well, we only get to meet twice a year; 初二 at my place, another day of CNY at my uncle's.

By right, we should gather around with them more often cos we have an 80+ year old grandma around. But by left, I feel that we can't be blamed for not being that close to them. Cos, my dad, is not close with them either. Since young, we only met them once a year. Only in the recent years, then become twice.

My dad has a very sad childhood, which moulded him into what he is today, weird + unreasonable + bad temper.

He was being abused (I heard my grandma threw chopper at him & tried to drown him) & chased out when he was around 7-8 years old. At sucha young age, he already started working & often got bullied by others.

I wasn't born well off. What I have today is the toil and sweat of my parents. Which is why I love & respect them alot. And I'll do what I can to make them happy, to the extend of sacrificing my own happiness.

My dad is weird & unreasonable most of the time, and he always scold & use vulgarities on us. But I cannot deny the fact that he worked very hard, to let us have a better life.

Which is why he hates people who are NUA, he hates people who has the ability but refused to work hard & he sets a high standard on us.

So if we are not up to his standard, we will get aimed and targeted by him. That's what happens to my siblings. I'm lucky cos after I have kids, he don't scold me that often anymore.

They said he dotes on me the most, which I somehow agree but I guess it's cos I didn't do anything to provoke him? And I know how to SIAM, hahaha! When he nags, I just pretend not to hear and don't reply him, lolol!

No matter what, I'm still very grateful to him and my mum, for everything I've today.

I buy but he pay!

Has been wanting to get a gold watch but kept contemplating cos I'm actually quite stingy on myself. Unless I'm being upset very badly, then I'd make impulse expensive purchases. Bad habit!! But luckily I see very open now so not much issues can really upset me badly. Maybe that's why I can have savings now!!!

So yesterday noon, I was telling my mum this plan, about telling ZY that I wanted to buy a gold watch, can he buy for me as Valentine's Day gift... And in the evening when I saw him, I tried my luck!

To my surprise, he said, "okay, cheap cheap only, can". HAHAHAHA

In fact, I've already aimed for one and went to see a few times already, lolol. And thank my lucky star, they have ready stock (cos that time they told me need to pre-order), we bought it off the shelf on the spot!


Dang dang dang!!!
 
Wanted another design but ZY and the saleman said this looks better, more 耐看 but more expensive also. Well, i quite like this too! =D

The husband isn't those romantic sort of guy whom will give me surprises and he said there's no need to be romantic anymore cos we are not lover. So over the years, I've learnt to accept this fact and learnt how to ASK for stuffs. If I'm lucky, he will pay. If not, then I pay myself lor!

Of cos, I knew he wouldn't buy expensive stuffs for me like branded bags so I need not waste my energy to ask. But those cheap stuffs, I can try my luck!

Then again, it's not that I cannot afford it, but the feeling of receiving presents is shiok de lor!

Just one word, "爽"! HAHAHAHA

蛇年初一 2013

Woke up very early to prepare the kids and myself as relatives from mum's side will come to 拜年, just like any other year. My house is like a gathering spot. So actually, before married, i don't have to go out at all. People will just come and come, i only need to stay at home to collect angbaos, lol. Then, i'll go to friend's house for mahjong marathon. Unlike now, need to stuck at home with two kids becos mummy is not free to help me take care of them. 

Now, if i want to go out, i need to seek for (a few) approvals. First is my mum, cos she is the only one helping me with my kids. Then, ZY, Raeann & Raechelle... Nobody knows how irritating it is to have a husband who always say, "I cannot handle them myself, they don't wanna find me" every single time i wanna go out. As if i'm born with sucha talent! 

And what the fuck does he mean by cannot, when he didn't even try? He said it's solely a woman's job to look after kids. YES, that's right, but it's meant for women who are not working. He work, i also got work what, and my working hours is earlier than him. I told him, i will take over the kids entirely, PROVIDED HE SUPPORT ME LOR and i don't have to work. Stop telling me all those selfish excuses becos i've 1000001 things to debate. If you want kids, HELP OUT. Otherwise, employ a helper. Don't use the cock to talk only. If i'm the one dying to have kids, it will be a different story.

年除夕 2013

OMG, did i mention that i ate non stop during the past 5 days? Really is non stop, my mouth worked very hard. It's so hard to resist all the good food and CNY goodies, especially Almond Sugee and Pineapple Tarts! But thank god i only put on a mere 0.5 kg, hahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahaha, what kind of sorcery is this? However, it's not the end yet. God bless me!

CNY EVE


To CCK for reunion lunch.


Raeann has been cooperative and obedient for the past few days, thumbs up for that! 


Happy eat Snake Year

Hello everyone, i'm backie!!! Miss me??? LOL


Happy CNY to everyone here!

Wah seh, i'm sorting out ALL the pics for the past 5 days, didn't know i took SO MANY lor. Really exhausted after 5 days of entertaining and eating, could barely open my eyes this morning. 

The Snake year has so far been good, except that i heard some JOKES. 

One of the lamest is, someone actually think that i'm so honored to share the same surname as her cos she's ashamed!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I should be more ashamed becos people might think i'm as hypocritical as her, gosh! 

Oh, and i don't make use of others to get what i want. 

(Just like how you made use of me to get back at your friend, no? Who's the one who cropped FF eyes and kept asking me to post on my blog? I didn't, cos i know how to leave mercy for others. And who's the one who kept urging me to blog about the email? Who's the one behind everything?)

You can hate me, for all i care. You can tell every common friends about how bad/stupid/fucked up i am to make them hate me as well, i don't care either. But please don't twist the stories and make it as though i'm the one fabricating tales, becos I DID NOT. I'm not so free (like you) to fabricate tales, REMEMBER IT and tell everyone about it. 

Really lor, women MUST work, if not will be imbalance. 

Alright, enough of this kind of people. 

This year, i will be very lucky, i'm sure.
