What is beauty? In my eyes, Strength.
Fitness training and physique development are a reflection of self-discipline, focus and drive. I progressed through challenges and setbacks and learned that hardwork and consistency does not just apply in training, but also in Life. I feel stronger as a person when I achieve my goals.
To be strong spiritually and as a physically, that's beautiful.
Check out this new Under Armor video that perfectly shows the deeper meaning of beauty in strength.

Last month, I was in Singapore for a few days to shoot some make-up tutorial videos for a fashion social network website called Clozette.co
It was my first time shooting a make-up tutorial video and to be honest, I was a little nervous about having the camera so up-close to my bare face. That was probably the first time I’m shooting in the front of the camera with no make-up on!
It’s important to feel comfortable in your own skin, with or without make-up, that’s what I told myself anyway and it helped me feel less nervous in when the cameras were rolling.
Check out the videos and keep reading to find out how you can win a little something from SK-II.

GMT Movement with Date
January was a busy month and it went by so quickly! It seems that everyone's been keeping occupied with work and doing their best to stick to those new years resolutions. Has anything in your daily habits changed since the start of 2013? Have you been eating breakfast? Brush your teeth before bed at night? It's still not too late to take some time to write down those resolutions and start fresh habits.
February is the month of L.O.V.E. and everyone knows this because of Valentines' Day. If you aren't seeing someone or haven't got a date, just remember what L.O.V.E. stands for - Love Often and Value Everyone!
I did a 2nd interview with Taste e-magazine (check out the first one here), this time with Charlie since it's for Valentines' Day. They featured an interesting topic on "couples who found love the unexpected way". Taste is an e-magazine published by Purple Sage (a boutique caterer in Singapore). For more on Food and Love (oh, the two totally go hand-in-hand!) check out their February 2013 issue.
Taste is doing another giveaway this month. Woohoo! Don't miss out page 26 of the e-magazine to find out how you can win a box of Hediard Macarons this Valentine’s Day. Get on it now because contest ends 3pm 8th February Friday!
There are many reasons why couples can get along so well together. Similar interests or the ability to make each other laugh (and cry) are key ingredients in a healthy relationship.
However, there are also some unconventional factors that contribute to that attraction. For most women, it’s all about that MASCULINITY, and what else would make you want to lean closer (or farther) if not for his scent?
Now there’s a reason why most bath products these days are catered specifically for men and women separately. Women generally wouldn’t use a men’s body wash because it isn’t moisturizing enough for the skin or the scent might be too strong. Most men on the other hand, don’t see anything wrong with smelling like a bed of flowers as long as they feel clean.
Ladies, it’s time to put your foot down and stop your man from using any regular body wash because Dettol High Performance for Men Shower Gel will not just give them the deep down clean they need, it will leave them smelling like a real man should – STRONG, FRESH & MASCULINE. Like a macho man!
Listen up boys! If you wouldn’t wear women’s perfume, you shouldn’t share the same body wash as your partner. I think the only bathroom product I share with Charles is toothpaste.
Get this straight: Women love the smell of flowers, but not on dudes.
What I like about Dettol High Performance for Men Shower Gel is its long-lasting, manly fragrance.
Try the EXTREME:
(I personally like this one on Charles!) It kills 99% of germs and cleanses deep down for all-day freshness.
Also kills 99% of germs while cleansing deep down and replace essential moisture, leaving your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
To find out which Dettol High Performance for Men Shower Gel suits you best, try the ‘Unleash The Man’ survey to discover your real man persona!
You’ll even stand a chance to win SGD50 worth of manly Dettol goodies just by doing this quick survey. That’s enough supply to last you up to 6 months, or even a year for men who… use very little soap.
You’ll be asked 5 survey questions before you’re led to this page where you’ll be asked to choose a photo for your final manly mug.
Make sure you choose a good ID type of photo and use the buttons to center the eye line.
I think my result was pretty spot on...
Okay, so this app is obviously more suitable for men… That’s why I think Charles’ final photo is a very good example of a REAL MAN!
Macho, macho man! I wanna be… a macho man!
The lucky 50th person that takes the survey of the day will stand a stance to win SGD50 worth of manly Dettol goodies!
There will be one winner each day while the contest runs between 18 July 2012 to 3 August 2012!
Congrats to the contest winners & subscribers of TASTE e-magazine! They have each won themselves a Maxitone Sculptress set which includes a mini shaker, protein powder, meal replacement/ protein bar and Sculptress tablets worth $115!
To win the contest all they had to do was susbcribe to TASTE e-magazine and answer a very simple question:
What is one dish that Fay recommends and why?
The best answer: One dish that Fay recommends is Grilled Salmon with Broccoli for its high-protein content and its richness in Omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon's insulin properties further help build muscle and aid in losing that stubborn layer of abdominal fat to show off great, killer abs! Served as a perfect accompaniment; broccoli, a good source of antioxidant that helps keep skin supple. With its high folate content and anti-cancer properties, broccoli serves as a perfect round-up to a delicious, satisfying meal!
Thank you for subscribing and enjoy your Maxitone products!
I'm featured in this month's ultra cool e-magazine by Purple Sage called 'TASTE'. In this month's issue, they share useful information on delicious superfoods such as broccoli and sardines. If you looooove burgers, find out how you can indulge in it without the guilt. Plus an exclusive interview with me!
Check out the magazine here
The Maxitone mini shaker and protein shake is a MUST-HAVE! The Sculptress diet protein bar is also a favorite. I take one with me when I'm out in case I need a meal replacement. You know sometimes you're out and about and feeling kinda hungry but there aren't many healthy food choices around... Don't fall into the FAST FOOD CHAIN TRAP!
As for the Sculptress tablets, it helped with shedding those last few pounds for me. Bear in mind that it is NOT a diet pill so unless you combine proper exercise and diet plan, don't expect a miracle!
Make sure you send your email by next Wednesday, April 18, 2012. Good luck!
I've actually cut down on drinking a lot since I told myself that I better stay away from alcohol if I want to lose weight faster and more effectively. It helped a lot and I definitely have more energy these days because I'm not staying up late and having late night suppers after a night out. I don't even remember the last time I had vodka, but in all honesty, I don't think I'll ever be able to give up whisky. One of the reasons why I love Johnnie Walker so much is its philosophy behind their favorite line - 'Keep Walking™'.
Most times when you're struggling to find a way out of what seems like an endless road of obstacles, you'll realize that the only way to through is to Keep Walking™. Which is why I think Winston Churchill's famous quote should be "If you're going through hell, keep walking" (instead of keep going) - something I tell myself everyday when I'm at the gym.
I got this sweet Limited Edition JW 4gb race car USB pen drive and you could win cool JW merchandise too if you Be A Fan on the Johnnie Walker Malaysia Facebook Fanpage and participate in their online contests such as the latest one they did which received a lot of feedback with more than 10 lucky winners!
Are you accident prone? Have you been getting muscle aches and pains from playing your favorite sport? Or do you sometimes get unexplainable bruises?
Like the time when I got major bruises from surfing at Wavehouse (Sentosa). Getting wiped out from the FlowBarrel caused a lot of bruises on my arms and legs. Surfing is indeed a hardcore sport.
SALONPAS is a pain relief patch to temporarily relief mild to moderate aches and pain of muscles and joints associated with arthritis, sprains, bruises and simple backache.
I often get bruises on my shin from kicking the punching bag during Muay Thai. My friends who do Mixed Martials Arts (MMA) and Muay Thai first recommended SALONPAS to me to help ease and heal the bruises faster. Takes lesser than a week to heal with SALONPAS! Tried & tested.
SALONPAS pain relief patch contains improved formula that penetrates quickly and targets the pain to relieve aches and sores.
It is skin color so it is not conspicuous. I’d rather have a patch on than showoff an unsightly bruise!
It is convenient and easy to apply. First, make sure your skin is clean and dry. Remove the patch from the backing film and apply directly to the skin. The slit on the plastic film side makes it easier to apply.
Peel off 1 side of the plastic, apply it on the affected area, and simply peel off the other side of the plastic)
- It is not recommended that you use more than a total of 4 patches a day.
- Use only 1 patch at a time per affected area.
- Use no more than 2 patches per day per affected area.
- Leave an individual patch in place for up to 8 hours.
- Do not use patches for more than 5 days in a row.
SALONPAS Pain Relief Patch sticks on firmly, yet is easy to peel off and has no greasy residue and leaves no mess.
The backing cloth stretches along the movement of the skin, contributes less tension and allows good fit even on joints. It feels so good to put it on after a nice massage. For bruises, I recommended applying the pain relief patch after icing your bruise. Applying an ice pack to your bruise before using the patch would help tremendously.
SALONPAS Pain Relief Patch contains methyl salicylate and l-menthol as active ingredients. It has a minty scent that is both soothing and refreshing.
The backing cloth stretches along the movement of the skin, contributes less tension and allows good fit even on joints.
SALONPAS Pain Relief Patch is thin, stretchable and flexible, it forms like skin. With great elasticity and snugness (7cm x 10cm).
You can get SALONPAS Pain Relief Patch at any major pharmacies, supermarkets, drug stores, convenience stores as well as neighborhood Chinese medical halls.
