Sea Eels are Good for Skin, Eyesight, Bones, and Low-Fat Diets

If you like to eat sushi, eel, and want beautiful skin and eyes, or trying to slim down, try eating salt-water eel ("anago") roll sushi.

Salt-water eels contain vast amounts of vitamin A and calcium. Its fat content is only 50% compared to freshwater eels ("unagi"). 



Between these two types of eel, sea eel is the milder, less fatty rich of the two.

The salt-water eel is considered to be especially good for improving your eyesight and skin, helping to create beautiful skin for women.

3rd September was 100 years before the birth of Doraemon!

Doraemon’s birthday is September 3rd, 2112, meaning in 100 years it would be Doraemon’s official birthday (creation date?).

To celebrate this event, a company called Runatown made a limited edition Doraemon watch which comes in two designs - Energy (black) and Birthday (white).


Both styles come with a small Doraemon figure!

The Energy is a solar watch.

The price is 22,176yen (less than $300) and there will only be 2,112 of each design for sale.

Even Google too celebrated Doraemon 100th birthday before arrival by creating a very interesting video that showcases all interesting things that can be found online related to Doraemon.

睡觉也能減重!有这么好康的事?當然!因為你不知道 — 睡眠不足,会降低身体燃烧卡路里的能力,导致隔天多摄取 221 大卡,两周就让你胖 0.5公斤!每天睡不到 5 小时,会比每晚睡足 7 小时以上的人,平均胖了将近 3 公斤。把吃宵夜的时间拿来睡觉,不必节食,三餐照常吃,不用运动,一年自动瘦掉 5 公斤。

若想要瘦回去,每天只需要多睡 1 到 2 小时就好,对刚生完孩子的妈效果最显著。減重的关键不是你的饮食、也无关于运动,答案居然是「睡觉」!

经科学家证实,想让身體更快速地燃烧脂肪,你就得先睡饱,因为光靠节食只会減肌肉,不会消脂肪。当我們进入深层睡眠时,大脑会分泌大量的成长荷尔蒙,告诉身体快去分解脂肪当作燃料。所以睡觉時,身体真的会燃烧脂肪!

Review: Essential Damage Care Nuance Airy Hair Mask

Watsons is holding sales during this GSS period, so today I bought Kao Essential Damage Care Hair Pack, Nuance Airy version (Pink) at a 10% discount (Promo Price $8.90; UP $9.90).


This hair mask is really good. It works instantly! It's perfect for last minute hair rescue!

Within only 5 minutes (of leave-in), it instantly makes my limp and flat hair light and bouncy, and my badly intertwined hair ends are entangled! It smoothens my hair, so when I brush through, my hair easily falls into place, with minimum hair fall. The next morning, my hair remain soft and easily falls in place with no entanglement, esp. at the ends.

There's the other orange version in this hair mask range, which is Rich Premier, that makes untameable hair smooth and manageable.

I suggest those who have really serious hair damage/dry problem to alternate both variants. You can get the right "feel" you desire on different days/occasions.

Essential by KAO is a hair care range that focused on damage care.

It is formulated with high purity honey and milk protein to deeply repair and strengthen damaged hair, and ultra shine essence to give long-lasting shine.

Get 1 FREE Can (Worth $65) of Meiji Amino Collagen and 1 Bottle of Collagen Drink

Meiji Singapore is holding a 10th Anniversary Special event to celebrate its best selling amino collagen product

Singaporean consumers can exchange any of their used or existing collagen product of any brand (except Meiji) for a can of 200g Meiji Amino Collagen (worth S65) and a bottle of Meiji Amino Collagen Drink.

It will be a three day event from 6 to 8 July 2012. Redemption is from 10am to 9pm for three days at Takashimaya B2 @ Fountain Area.

Those interested must arrive early as there're limited stocks.

Meiji amino collagen powder is made from fish collagen peptides and contains about 27 kcal per spoon (which is included with the can).

When you turn 20, your body produces less and less collagen as the time goes by and that's one of the main reasons you get wrinkles and atonic skin, so Meiji claims that their powder can help your body keeps its high level of collagen, as one spoon contains 5000 mg of protein.

You may mix this with juice or lactose-free milk for better taste.

It's recommended to drink this before bedtime.

Eisu: Premium Mineral Alkaline Water from Korea


"'Eisu (A水)' will keep you from getting tired and from aging, argued a water expert. 

"Unlike other bottled water brands 'Eisu (A水)' is alkaline mineral water full of calcium, magnesium, and kalium. It reportedly helps the improvement for 4 kinds of gastric symptoms such as chronic diarrhea, digestive disorder, and abnormal fermentation and excessive acid inside stomach.

- Quoted from the KFDA (Korea Food and Drug Administration) report on March 4, 2009

Mr. Kim Jong-Oh, deputy manager of Hankook Jungsoo Industries Co'.s Quality Assurance Department, sounded quite confident of the water he and his company sell. In a recent interview with The Seoul Times Mr. Kim argued that his premiere bottled water "Eisu (A水)" can get rid of reactive oxygen species (ROS), causes of aging and all diseases. He also said that his water can make tired people feel much better by decomposing acid.

"Our water can keep human body healthy by making our body more Alkaline", Mr. Kim stressed. "Human bodies are becoming more acidified due to the fast food and surroundings"

Mr. Kim explained that in "Eisu (A水)" "Ei" means Alphabet A and "su" means water in Chinese character.

"Eisu", which hit the market as a premiere water over three years ago, is spreading to the local as well as overseas market in spite of its prices: It is four times more expensive than the regular bottled water locally produced. Mr. Kim said that "Eisu" has been supplied to the major department stores, marts, convenience stores, highway stores, resorts, golf courses, stores within hospitals a around the country since its production in September of 2009.

Some hotels, cancer treatment centers, OB/GYN clinics are also provided with the water. "Lots of sick people or unhealthy folks that I know are using our water", Mr. Kim said. "They are highly satisfied with our water". He admitted that lots of his customers are relatively wealthy people. Professional sportsmen and women are also drinking "Eisu", according to Mr. Kim.

"I know of a case in which one of my friends got cured of his stomach problems", Mr. Kim said. "He was suffering from a severe stomachache or gastritis. But he started drinking our water"

"Skin problems like Atopic dermatitis or a symptom of constipation can be controlled or cured by drinking our water", Mr. Kim said. "Patients with diabetes also get much better after drinking our water"

"Eisu" now is exported to America and Singapore. And company officials are in talks with businessmen in Vietnam and China for exports.

According to the industry statistics, the local market for the bottle water has almost doubled in recent years. In 2007 the market was 390 billion won but it rose to over 600 billion won in 2011. Currently, a total of 70 manufacturers are producing some 100 different brands of bottled water in South Korea. Among them is Samdasu, which accounts for half of the total market share. Jinro's Seoksu and Puris are also well-known brands.

"After all, water is most important for our health", Mr. Kim stressed. "I strongly urge people to drink our water"


I believe drinking more of such naturally healthy water can detoxify the body and skin to achieve natural beauty and attain a healthier state.
