Sponsored Review of The Body Firm

Thanks The Influencer Network for the kind invitation. Went down to The Body Firm today for a sponsored review of their slimming services. Tried The Body Firm System as well as I-lipo and had a body fat analysis done. Based on the analysis, I should lose another 6kg. Gambatte!!

The Body Firm System was developed by a British scientist, one of the co-inventors of the pacemaker, and uses a similar type of neuro-stimulation, except that it’s applied to the body muscles. This was the first time that I tried such a machine. It felt rather weird and ticklish in the beginning. But my body soon adapted to the vibrations. I was quite amused to see the muscle contractions. I wouldn't mind having the machine to help me exercise and it was doing all the work instead of my lazy bones. lol. I could feel my thighs vibrating even after the machine was switched off! The Body Firm System strengthens and tone muscles and can reduce cellulite and improve posture and reduce back pain as well as has bust enhancement benefits o.O

Honestly, I prefer the FDA-approved I-lipo treatment as it was so painless and soothing that I almost dozed off. lol. I-lipo is the intelligent, non-surgical alternative to liposuction. The system allows you to experience fat reduction and a slimmer, tighter shape all over with no pain and no needles, all within a short period of time. Rather than remove fat cells through surgical liposuction – which is invasive, costly, painful and potentially risky – lipolaser aims to simply shrink the fat cells in your body. Low level lasers have been utilized as effective treatments in fat reduction for several years.  Lipolaser’s cold laser penetrates a few millimeters beneath your skin, targeting the subcutaneous fat cells without risking damage to your organs. This method of draining the cells allows some of the fat content to get released into your lymphatic system in the form of triglycerides which are broken down and metabolized by the body, allowing it to be “burned off” during a period of post-treatment exercise. During the procedure, about 500 calories worth of fat is released into your body from the specific areas treated. I was advised to do some exercise after this treatment so that it would be easier to drain off the fats. Benefits of this treatment include fat and inch reduction and body contouring. It's non-surgical and excellent spot reduction.

I could feel that my tummy area is more toned the very next day. Thumbs up!

Grand Opening Of Jaeger-LeCoultre Ion Boutique and Jaeger-LeCoultre Astral Exhibition

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique at Ion Orchard has officially opened and Jaeger-LeCoultre presented an exhibition paying tribute to astronomy at ION Art Gallery.  Premiering in Singapore this exhibition reveals the new creations of the Manufacture including the Duomètre Sphérotourbillon Moon watch, the Rendez-Vous Moon watch and also historical models from Jaeger-LeCoultre Heritage Collection. Thanks Jaeger-LeCoultre for the great hospitality extended during the event. My eyes had an awesome time feasting over the beautiful timepieces! 

I love vintage timepieces and this is a very interesting vintage piece seen at the Astral exhibition

This vintage timepiece is so dainty yet so pretty with all the bling bling details

The Grande Complication: A Minute Repeater with a rich and intense sound so as to provide an audible indication of the time, the Master Grande Tradition Grande Complication is equipped with an additional characteristic in the form of a mechanism sounding the hours, the quarters and the minutes on demand.

Rendez-Vous Celestial, a sparkling finery exalting the beauty of the stars: The zodiac calendar serves to specify the position of the constellations at any time of the year, via an annual calendar that regulates the time display and measurement system. With the new Rendez-Vous Celestial as an astronomical observation instrument, reading the sky takes on a unique delicacy. The developers of the model have chosen to integrate a star in order to personalise time: by means of the second crown adorned with an inverted diamond, the mobile star shifts in tune with the wishes of the woman who turns it in order to indicate the hour of her choice, whether that of a happy memory or a date she is setting with destiny. This new creation has the fiery colour and majestic presence of the sun, to which constellations and zodiac signs add their mesmerising charm while testifying to the expertise of the Manufacture from the Vallée de Joux. The message of the Rendez-Vous Celestial by Jaeger-LeCoultre is crystal-clear: astronomy is wonderfully suited to women.

Duomètre à Sphérotourbillon

Rendez-Vous Moon, living in harmony with the most feminine of celestial bodies. While a classic moon phase shows a one-day deviation every two and a half years,  the Rendez-Vous Moon is destined to remain accurate for 985 years. An eternity by human standards.

Interesting grey dial which is the boutique edition and available exclusively only at Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques

Beautiful rose gold clock spotted at the boutique

There's a very interesting wall at the boutique whereby some of the mechanisms of the watches are displayed, which is great for watch collectors!

That's Mike poring over the timepieces at the boutique

I thought it's a really nice gesture of Jaeger-LeCoultre to celebrate Stefan's birthday...which I later learnt is a never ending love story between Stefan and Jaeger-LeCoultre =)

Was at the unveiling of a new art installation by Chicago-based artist Carlos Rolón/Dzine (recipient of America’s award for the National Endowment of the Arts) at Rolls-Royce Singapore showroom this afternoon. ‘Untitled (Opulence)’ is Carlos' first work to be presented as the feature showpiece of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Singapore showroom for a month, in collaboration with Pearl Lam Galleries, one of Asia's most important contemporary art galleries, and will be shown for one month to coincide with Art Stage Singapore (22 – 25 January 2015). This latest installation is part of the Rolls-Royce art programme, which draws together the handcrafted elegance of Rolls-Royce motor cars with contemporary artists around the world.

This neon sculpture is inspired by the traditional Parthenon style Grille and the Spirit of Ecstasy of each Rolls-Royce motor car. Measuring 3M by 3.5M, this new installation explores movement, lines and the interaction of colour together with changes of mood and perception. By juxtaposing the use of neon and a mandala-like pattern, the work employs the combined language of post minimalism, pop art and abstraction. Meditative and therapeutic, it creates a trance-like effect for the viewer. Untitled (Opulence) appeals to the senses and projects into the future, while encompassing the story of mythical beauty, energy and ecstasy.

Posing with Untitled (Opulence), which is inspired by Rolls-Royce’s tradition of expert craftsmanship, and a Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II are, from left: Mr Karsono Kwee, Executive Chairman of Eurokars Group; Carlos Rolón, artist; Pearl Lam, owner of Pearl Lam Galleries and Paul Harris, Asia Pacific Regional Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

A bonnet ornament on the new Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, ’The Spirit of Ecstasy’ is seen with the ‘Untitled (Opulence)’ in the background at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Singapore showroom. ‘Untitled (Opulence)’, the showpiece by American artist Carlos Rolón was inspired by the Spirit of Ecstasy, Parthenon Grill and Starlight Headlining of a Rolls-Royce.

Love the vibrant hues of this interesting creation by Carlos Rolón

Rolón, who also goes by the name Dzine, has been recognised for his elaborately crafted paintings and ornate sculptures. His practice encompasses a range of media moving seamlessly between murals, sculpture, painting, and installation while he investigates pop culture, craft, ritual, beauty, spirituality, and identity and its relationship to art history, subculture, appropriation and the institution. His carefully crafted works, often inspired by a hybrid of cultures, are playfully situated between the contradictory worlds of conspicuous consumption and urban artefact.

Mr. Paul Harris, Asia Pacific Regional Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, addressing the media during the unveiling of ‘Untitled (Opulence)’

Paul Harris, Asia Pacific Regional Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “Rolón is a critically acclaimed, international artist who, through his own background, appreciates craftsmanship and Bespoke, two tenets of our own Rolls-Royce business. His philosophy is grounded in identity and self-expression, and so we believe that his work will touch a cord with Rolls-Royce clients and enthusiasts alike. It is an honour that we are able to support the artist and his work at a time when Singapore has emerged as an internationally vibrant hub for contemporary art.”

Mr Karsono Kwee, Executive Chairman of Eurokars Group, commented, “I am very proud that our Rolls-Royce showroom in Singapore is hosting a highly unique artwork that draws its inspiration from the brand’s iconic products. It is a real privilege. I hope that our customers, prospects and the public alike will come down to appreciate Carlos’ work alongside our pinnacle motor cars.”

Pearl Lam said, “I am thrilled to be working for the first time with Rolls-Royce's innovative Arts initiative to present a bespoke neon sculptural work by Carlos Rolón/Dzine. As a brand Rolls-Royce embodies a passion for handcraft, creativity, design and engineering, values shared by Rolón/Dzine and Pearl Lam Galleries. For this project Rolón/Dzine has created a neon work utilising the iconic image of the Rolls Royce radiator grill combining a street art aesthetic and global appreciation of luxury.
