My Third Meridian Session at Slimming 101

It was a cold day so I really appreciate the warm thermal bed. I doze off lying on my front while waiting for the meridian treatment. The therapist educated me that pressing on those pressure points on my lower back just above my tailbone would help to reduce water retention in my kidneys. N pressing those pressure points higher up on my back could reduce fat absorption!! That's very important to me!!

There are some pressure points on my stomach which are to aid in digestion. I find that I usually burp after eating and that's a sign that my digestion is not good. Pressing on the pressure points on the sides of my tummy could help to reduce unnecessary eating!! Again, that's very important for me cos I seem to be always hungry!!

I lost 500g in this meridian session!

My Second Meridian Treatment at Slimming 101

Love the relaxing lavender scent of the gel that was used in the meridian treatment. It seemed more like a relaxing massage session rather than a typical slimming treatment...lol...when the therapist pressed on my meridian points today, i felt lesser pain as compared to my first meridian treatment...hopefully that meant that more fats and toxins have been flushed out of my body since...some of the meridian points on my tummy that the therapist pressed on are to aid in my food digestion...n i felt v.hungry after this session today! 

After my meridian points were pressed from the front and back, I was wrapped up with thermal blanket on the thermal bed for about 30 minutes and i sweated quite a bit in these 30 minutes. I lost 200g in today's treatment...im also trying to cut down on my food intake these days too, so hope i can lose more weight and also to maintain the weight loss. I recommend this meridian treatment as a healthy alternative for weight loss!

Grand Opening of Jack Wills in Singapore

For Jack Wills fans, the good news is that the Cult British fashion brand, Jack Wills, today made its debut in Singapore with the grand opening of its first store in Raffles City Shopping Centre, 252 North Bridge Road. 

This retail outlet is the brand’s fourth store in Asia, and the first outside of Hong Kong since the company’s foray into the region in 2011. The Grand Opening Party was presided by the Fabulously British brand’s Global Business Development Director, Sanjay Sharma, who had flown in for the day to celebrate the official opening of Singapore’s very first Jack Wills store.


“Since we opened our first store in Hong Kong in 2011, I have watched Jack Wills grow and flourish in the region, thanks to our customers’ encouraging support of the brand, which has motivated us to bring the Jack Wills experience into Singapore,” Sharma said.

“In just within three years, Asia has risen to become our second most important market, after the United Kingdom, and am thrilled to be here in Singapore to launch our very first store in this sophisticated, fashion-forward country. The Raffles City store will become the 78th Jack Wills store in the world – with many more to come.”

Jack Wills was established in 1999 by founders Peter Williams and Robert Shaw in Salcombe, Devon, a small coastal town in the south of England. Ever inspired by the best of British, from its history and culture to sporting and country pursuits, the company’s registered trademark, “Fabulously British” encapsulates the inspiration behind Jack Wills – high quality goods that draw heavily on British heritage and style. Jack Wills takes pride in using the finest quality materials, techniques and design to deliver the brand’s distinctive connection between the old and new, epitomizing what it means to be young and Fabulously British.

Over the last month of October, the public in Singapore were treated to Jack Wills’ very special brand of consumer engagement with the introduction of the Singapore team of Seasonnaires, a group of youthful and exuberant ambassadors for the brand, to spread the word about the anticipated arrival of the company’s first store in Singapore at Raffles City.

Over four weekends, the Jack Wills Singapore Seasonnaires took the Jack Wills Land Rover around town, delighting the crowds with frosty pink & navy striped popsicles, limited edition Jack Wills sunglasses and tote bags, and scratch cards to redeem goodies in-store. Keep a look out for them – unmistakable in their Jack Wills pink & navy polo tees – in the coming months.

The Raffles City store opens with the Jack Wills Autumn and Christmas 2014 collections. The Autumn 2014 collection includes a range of versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched to reflect several style tribes, from ‘Chelsea Skater’ to ‘Blogger Babe’ for ladies and ‘Metro Gent’ to ‘Urban Fielder’ for gentlemen.


For the Christmas 2014 collection, expect festive hues, soft textures and iconic “Made in Britain” outerwear pieces. The boutique will also carry accessories, homeware and gifts to suit every shopping need.


The 2,400 square foot store in Raffles City reflects all that is Fabulously British. A handsome black-and-white store front opens up to rustic herringbone wood flooring, bedecked with a hand-painted Union Jack and a colonial-inspired arch column divider draped with velvet Union Jack curtains. The retail space features high ceilings with grand chandeliers, and a statement wall hand-painted with the brand’s signature pink and navy stripes. Vintage picture frames and carefully curated memorabilia are balanced with bright, contemporary industrial furnishings, creating a smooth blend of heritage and the present.


Jack Wills products are cut to a slim block and any need for slight refinements will be taken care of by an in-house tailoring service for customers. The brand has a strong following amongst some of the most quintessentially British style icons, including Princes William and Harry, Emma Watson and Cheryl Cole.

About Jack Wills

Established in 1999 in Salcombe, Devon, by founders Peter Williams and Robert Shaw, Jack Wills is influenced by the best of British, from its history and culture to sporting and country pursuits. As an outfitter, Jack Wills takes pride in using the finest quality materials, techniques and design to deliver the brand’s distinctive connection between the old and new, epitomising what it is to be young and Fabulously British.

As a brand, Jack Wills has championed the use of viral, guerrilla and social media marketing via its local teams of Seasonnaires, building a cult following amongst its fans in the United Kingdom, United States and across Asia.

My First Meridian Treatment and TCM Consultation at Slimming 101

Went down to Slimming 101 for my TCM consultation today. The inhouse TCM doctor first took my pulse on both hands...we chatted a bit about my sleeping habits, diet, lifestyle and sensitive skin...she said that 11pm-3am is the time that our body and kidney rejuvenate so her advice is to sleep before 11pm...but honestly, sleeping before 11pm is quite difficult for me to achieve...it would be good if i can sleep before 1am...cos i only have about 4hrs of sleep on weekdays on busy days although i try to catch up on sleep during the weekends...

I'm supposed to be "pseudo-heaty" (pardon my literal translation) so a little on the heaty side and my body lacks fluids. She's right that i feel thirsty quite easily...honestly, i'm the type who can gulp down a big glass of drink when i'm thirsty...she adviced me to cut down on spicy food (again, not easy cos i love spicy stuff o.O)

I'm quite surprised when she asked if i feel giddy...she could tell that i have a giddiness issue just by taking my pulses o.O well. just a few weeks ago i had a really bad giddy spell...so bad that I was advised by my eye specialist to go for MRI scan on my brain...the tcm doctor said i could be anemic...interesting to learn that anemia is not exclusive to those who have low blood pressure...


The inhouse TCM doctor at Slimming 101

Had my first meridian treatment too...it's supposed to be good for draining out the toxins and to improve the digestive system etc...the therapist pressed on my meridian points and patiently explained the positions of the various meridian points. She said that it usually means that there's some blockages if there's pain upon pressing the meridian points...i feel pain on more than quite a few meridian points ler...looks like there's a lot of toxins stuck in me! i was then wrapped in plastic and underwent the thermal detox treatment which was done at abt 50 deg C...the idea is to induce sweating to flush out the toxins...i was v.sweaty when i was finally unwrapped....reminds me of my hot yoga class...lol...but it looks like i have lost about 1 kg from this treatment! wow! o.O
